 WITHIN  THIRTY-THREE  MILES  Of Kimberley.  Orange  River, November 27���(Moil-  day).���The British arms here achieved  a  brilliant victory.    The  enemy,  strongly  entrenched, held  a  riliige of hills  com-  miiiiding both sides  of the  railway  at  ltoqi Laagte, near Graspan.   The  troops  under Lewis reconnoitered in an armored  train ou Friday.   The Boers shelled the  train, killing Lewis and a private.     General Methuen then  advanced.     His  column made a detour and   bivouacked   for  the  night at  Swink's  Pan, three miles  from the Boer position.     At dawn  the  advance began, the Guards  forming the  reserve.    The columu debouched on  the  plain, eastward of tlie Boco kopjes.    The  Boer guns opened lire.    Two batteries of  British     artillery     posted "   on      each  side    shelled    the     Boers,    tlie    practice     being     good      ou      both      sides.  The Boers stuck  to their positions, firing steadily  and  accurately.    The duel,  which continually became  hotter, lasted  three hours'!    The Boer shells wounded  several of the naval brigade.    Finding it  impossible to displace the Boers by artillery, geueral  Methuen  resolved upon an  infantry attack.    A brigade of infantry,  including the Yorkshires, Northamptons  and  Northumberlands,   with   the naval  brigade on the left, gallantly stormed the.  Boer positions in the face of a withering  lire and carried hill  after hill.    Tlie brigade, under" colonel Mooney, captured the  main position  against a terrific fire, but  suffering severely.  London,' November 28.���General Forester-Walker sent tlie following dispatch  dated Cape Town, today : "Kekewich reports from Kimberley from November  18th to 23rd some unimportant skirmishes with the Boers. Wounded���Captain Bodley, lieutenant Hawker and  three troopers, all doing well. Tlie  Iiealth of the garrison is good and the  water supply plentiful."  Native reports to Kekewich state that  the enemy's camps to the south of Kimberley are vacated, and that Cronje with  3000 men is marching to the south. The  Boers are disappearing from the vicinity  of Kimberley. The enemy seem restless.  The railway line was repaired to a  point six miles north of Graspan today  aud the telegiaph was reopened to within eight miles of Modder River and 33  miles from Kimberley.  Later���Gatacre occupied Bushman's  hoek yesterday witli a battalion of infantry. " His main body is at Putter's  kraal. The enemy, retired to Molteno."  The transport Scot, with 38 officers aud  1080 men, and the Bavarian, with 83  officers and 2810 men, arrived at Cape  Town on Tuesday.'  Protest Against Using Kaffirs.  Paris, November 28.���A copy of an alleged protest, addicssad by the authorities of the South African Republic to the  foreign consuls at Pretoria against the  use of Kaffirs by the British, has just  reached Paris. It reads as follows: "'J  have the honor to call your government's  attention to the report announcing the  engagement last night (October 18th)  between a commando and tlie English  near Mafeking, the English having 1000  Kaffir auxiliaries, one of whom was  wounded and made prisoner, aud tliejjre-  sults of this information and other reports coming iu from the eastern frontier where the Kaffirs have been called to  arms by the English authorities. This  shows that the British government commits the unpardonable crime of arming  the blacks against the whites iu a struggle unjustly*~fora_d~on~the~Soutlr African-  Republic. This act may have the gravest consequences for all white Africa."  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, __RITISH COLUMBIA.  WEDNESDAY MOBBING, NOVEMBER 20,  1899.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WEEKLY, $2.  News From Boer Sources.  BhrlIX, November 28.���The Deutsche  5.eitung publishes the following dispatch,  dated Pretoria, November 27th, received  through Boer diplomatic channels : "President Kruger and president Steyn have  instructed general Joubert and general  Cronje not to split their forces into small  detachments, but to strike vigorous  blows. General Joubert has three corps :  one holding Ladysmith, the second commanding the Tugela. and the third east  of Estcourt, in order to cut off the British retreat. General Cronje's forces are  divided into three contingents: one at  Kimberley, another at Modder River, and  the third -- in the rear of general  Methuen."   Will Use an American Invention.  London, November 28.���The war office  has decided to test the Mills web cartridge belt in use in the United State.*?  army, and has given an initial order to a  Boston firm, which at the outbreak of the  Transvaal war transferred a* factory to  England, immediately receiving a recompense for their enterprise by the aforementioned order. The British army is  now using leather cartridge belts, which  liave been found to be somewhat stiff and  covered with verdigres.  A State of War Exists.  London, November 28.���*-The Associated  Press learns that the action of lord  Pauncefote and other British ambassadors in notifying the powers that a state  of war has existed since October 11th between' Great Britain and the South  African Republic has prompted enquiries  Observed What Was Going on.  London* November 2i).���The Paris correspondent of the Times telegraphs the  substance of au interview he has had  with a distinguished German who went  to Englaud to observe what was going  on during the visit of the Kaiser, and  who said : "I do not think the emperor  went to England purely for political ends,  or merely for family reasons. I am almost sure that without in any way interfering in the Transvaal affair, he more  than once expressed a wish to see the  war brought to a close. 1 am_a_so_p8r-_  suaded that his majesty asked many  questions as to the present relations between Japan, the United States and  Gi'eat Britain, and many were inclined to  detect in this curiosity something more  than a mere matter of conversation.  When the kaiser's plan for a great German navy is realized, the colonial policy  of Germany will undergo a complete  change. It will then be seen that at  many points Germany and England have  the same interests and will meet with the  same opposition."  Accomplished One of His Purposes.  London, November 2.?.���Truth announces that emperor William has  achieved one of the objects of his visit to  England iu having induced queen Victoria to give a conditional promise to  visit the Prussian court during the last  week of April. She will travel, it appears, from Nortli Italy to Germany by  the St. Gothard tunnel and be Germany's  guest for several days at Coblenz or Potsdam. Her majesty's visit will be entirely  private. There will be no presentations  or reviews.  A Liberal Donation.  London, November 28.���Emperor William before he embarked left ��300 with  colonel Marshall for the benefit of the  children of the soldiers of the First  (Royal) Dragoons, now campaigning in  South Africa, of whieh regiment his majesty is honorary colonel.  Who Will be Metropolitan of Canada?  Montreal, November 28.���The names  of bishops Bond of Montreal and Hamilton of Ottawa are mentioned as likely to  be the successors to archbishop Lewis,  the metropolitan of Canada, who retires  in May next.  by the various London embassies regarding the nature of hostilities.    The Associated  Press  is  officially  informed that  the notification has in  no wise  changed  the British views as to the  Boer status,  but in spite of the ambiguous references  in the queen's speech  and  other  official  documents at the commencement of  the  war        regarding       "military       operations,"   and    other     evasions    of     the  usual   term   "war,"    it     appears    that  the United States has consistently recognized, the Boers  politically  as  an  independent state,  considering  the claim of  British suzerainty too slightly adhered to  to put them in the light of rebels.    It is  tacitly admitted by the British officials  that the usual communication relative to  a "state of war" were not made earlier  because it was not .thought that victory  would be deferred long- enough to make  such a diplomatic  step necessary.    The  government maintains that giving the  Boers   belligerent   rights  does  not constitute    an    acknowledgment   of   their  claims  to independence,   evidencing   as  proof of this contention that both foreign governments and the government of  the United  States  treated  the  Confederates as belligerents.  FOUR BATTLES MAY HAVE BEEN  Fought Ere This.  London, November 29���5 a.m.���Virtually the only fresh news from the front  is contained in the dispatches of general  Forester-Walker to the war office. The  cables continue silent, presumably because of general Buller's desire to prevent  leakage regarding important movements  being carried on. It seems clear, however, that general Methuen is continuing  to advance rapidly, aud that finding the  railway much damaged he left it behind  him. When telegraphic communication  is resumed, it is quite possible that news  may come of four simultaneous battles,  namely, at Mooder River, Arundel, Strom-  berg aud Coienso. As the Boers, according to general Forester-Walker's advices,,  were leaving Kimberley for the south, it  is regarded as uot impossible that colonel  Kekewich is already marching with 2000  troops to meet general Methuen. It is  believed that after, the-relief ��� of -Kimberley, general Methuen will proceed to the  relief of Mafeking. about which considerable anxiety is still felt.  Lieutenant-general sir Charles Mansfield-Clark, it is reported, will be the  commander of the Sixth division. The  latest phase of the mobilization of the  reserves has proved as satisfactory as  have former calls. Out of 978(5 men summoned, 9.553 have rejoined the colors.  A LEADER MAKES A BRILLIANT  ,, Speech at a Party Conference.  London, November 28.���Arthur J. Balfour, the.government leader in the house  of commons, addressing the national Conservative conference at Dewsbury today,  repelled the charge that the goveru-  ment's policy in the war in South Africa  was the acquisition of the gold fields. He  asked if, during the last 100 years, any  British statesmen had dreamed of taxing  the colonies for the benefit of the mother  country. Britishers were now sacrificing  the lives of those dear to them, he  asserted, for the sake of the security and  honor of the empire. The first acts of  the drama were being played in Cape  Colony and Natal, but the denouement  would be played, _ie��trusted, in dominions  not now subject to the crown.  "I have now come to the conclusion,"  he said, '/that the declaration of war by  .the Transvaal and the Free State was  not any despairing struggle for liberty,  but a bold bid to make themselves the  neiicleus of a Dutch speaking paramount  power in South Africa, and to exclude for  ever the hated Britisher from a dominat-1  ing influence in that part of the world.  The people have risked their all upon the1  stake of war, and it is incredible that  such a risk would be run merely to prevent the Uitlanders getting a vote. Their  dream may be madness, but it is intelligent madness when we consider the whole  situation and the military difficulties that  beset Great Britain in a Soutli African  campaign. They have also vainly counted  upon the British party system, and another reason may be found in their profound contempt for British arms.  Passing to a high eulogy of the "brilliant bravery of our troops, the courage,  patriotism and endurance of the small  colony of Natal, and the spirit of the colonies generally," he continued: "Last  but not least, may we not ou this occasion express our thanks to our American  relations, who have done all that is possible in a case like this, namely, they  have provided and equipped the Maine,  uot only in the interests of humanity;  but as I well believe, to show their sympathy for those engaged in the great  fight.. '-       _'-*���- ���'     --,-'-,  In the course of an eloquent peroration, in whieh he said he was unable to  lift the veil hiding the future, Mr. Balfour said he was confident an era of peace,  prosperity and freedom would follow  "these dark struggles."  PAID THE LICENSE AND WILL DO  Business in Nelson.  The Tribunk. has maintained that all  the insurance companies that wanted to  do business in Nelson would pay the license imposed on insurance companies,  and do it, in a measure, willingly. The  first company notified, has promptly instructed its local agents to pay the license  fee and; draw for the amount. This is all  the more gratifying when it is known that  the agents of the company had did no  business for the company until they received the letter instructing them to pay  the license fee. The first property owner  the letter was shown to immediately ordered a policy for $5000 to be written on  a piece of his property. The company is  one of the oldest and most reliable insurance companies in America. The letter  below explains itself: ��     y  . SAN FRANCISCO, Novembei 23rd, 18fl9. '  Messrs. Wjiril J-tro.heis, Nelson, 11. C.  Gentlemen : Your favor of the loth instant, is at hand,  ciU'losinj. copy, of the by-law of the Corporation of the  City of Nelson, imposing a tAx.on tire insiiranue companies of ��100 per annum. ' Wo aro not; sure that wo  would have entered the town if we had known so hcavy  a tax woro imposed on companies. It is certainly out of  all proportion to the amount, of business that a company  is likely to transact. As we havo mado the appointment,  however, we will comply with the law, and we authorize  you to pay the tax for tho coming year. We will see  what the result of the first year's business is nnd whether  it will justify lis in continuing the afjonry. We note that  jou believe jou will mako it worth our while to comply  with the law. We will at least give the matter a li in 1  and do our utmost to assist ,eu in making a success of  the ajjency. You may di.iw upon us for the amount  v. hen it is neccS'S.irj to pay tho tax, and forward . oucher  m due course.   Yours veij truly,  WHITNEY PALACHK, Assistant Manager.  success, and "Captain A. Fane Wain-  wright, one of the Hussars, one of the  queen's crack regiments, and veterans of  Indian campaigns," was conceded to be  the climax to give the real Knglish tone  to the whole thing. Women worshipped  at his shrine and men imitated him.  Then rumors became rife that captain  Wainewright owed the Burl in game Club  money and that he had borrowed at odd  times as he seemed to need it. Then captain Wainewright disappeared. No oue  seemed to know just where he had gone,  few seemed to care.  BOERS SUCCESSFULLY RETREAT  After Meeting With Defeat.  London, November 29.���A. despatch  from Orange River, dated Monday. November 27th, describing the battle of  Euslin, says : " The Boers successfully retreated. The Lancers attempted to intercept them, but a severe fire opened from  a hill forced the Lancers to retreat.  General Cronje was with the Boers.  Among the Boer prisoners are alderman  Jeephe and commandant Resslk, who led  the Boer force. Many of the Boers voluntarily surrendered. The Boers were  jshelledydiuyingj-he ;netreat_and_must_have_  lost heavily, but they succeeded in getting away northward with their six guns.  The British were badly in need of more  cavalry, The bulk of the fighting was on  Free State territory, and the engagement  was admirably planned.' Thirty Boer  wounded are under treatment here. At  the close of the action general Methuen  complimented the naval brigade upon  their splendid behavior, and expressed  his regret at their losses."  The New York Swindlers.  Nkw York, November 28.���Louis A.  Gourdain. who has a "banking" office in  the Metropolitan Life insurance building  at No. 1 Madison Avenue, and is alleged  to have a scheme similar to that of the  Franklin Syndicate, with whom William  F. Miller was connected, was today arrested ou an .order of chief of police  Diversy. He was taken to police headquarters and will be charged with swindling. Gourdain is said to be a well-known  lottery man. John R. Agnew, who is  connected with the Washington Syndicate in Greenpoint, Long Island, was up  for arraignment today before magistrate  Kramer in a Brooklyn police court. The  magistrate did not see fit to arrange bail  for the prisoner until the district attorney should be consulted. Edward Nour-  ney, a bookkeeper who. it is alleged, handled the prisoner's records, was placed in  the stand, but no information of importance was obtained. Hubert E. Taylor,  who was yesterday appointed the receiver for Miller's syndicate of Brooklyn,  today declined to accept the position. In  his letter of declination to judge Smith  he says that the final disposition of the  syndicate's affairs would be so unsatisfactory to the many creditors that it  would be painful for liim to witness the  distress.  Will Be Knighted and Retired.  Ottawa, November 28.���A rumor is  current in military circles that Dr. Borden, minister of militia, will be knighted  in recognition of his services in connection with sending the Canadian contingent to Soutli Africa. The rumor is not  confirmed, but is Regarded as probably  true. He will then retire from the Laurier  government, and be replaced by James  Sutherland of Woodstock, Ontario, who  is a paymaster in the militia and a holder  of a seat in the government Avithout  portfolio.           _^  Brant Conservatives Nominate a Candidate,  Brantpobd, Ontario, November 28.���  Robert Henry, who defeated Hon. Mr.  Patterson, now minister "of customs, in  the last-Dominion election, but who was  subsequently unseated and afterwards  defeated by C. B. Heyd, Liberal, has been  nominated by Brant Conservatives to  oppose'Mr. Preston for the Ontario legislature.  WAS A SWELL GENERAL MANAGER  Of a Swell San Francisco Club.  San Franuksco, November 27.���Now  that the denouement has come, aud captain A. Fane Wainewright has publicly  fallen from grace, the ultra-swells of the  fashionable Burliugame and other good  fellows generally are not averse to telling  what they.know of the English clubman.  They agree that Wainewright left San  Francisco months ago under a cloud  occasioned by his alleged shortages and  by personal borrowings connected with  the Burlingame Country Club and some  _of__its__members. -They also_ agree -that  the captain has been in painful financial  straits in Nelson, British Columbia, lie  even wrote to foimer friends in this city  soliciting funds to tide him over a period  of distress.  When his appeals reached certain Englishmen here they interested themselves  because the man was believed to be a fellow-countryman. Their inquiries failed  to reveal that captain Wainewright was  a worthy object for their solicitous attentions, and they let the matter drop.  Now Englishmen here are saying they  doubt if captain Wainwright was ever a  British army officer at ail. They declare  that if lie was a captain he must have  been an officer in some militia company,  but not in the regular army. They have  failed thus far to learn of his ever having  been in England at all.  "He was one of those chaps," said a  Burlingame clubman tonight, "who creates a good impression by his personality  alone. He just fell in with the Burlingame crowd, and was taken up and made  much of without their knowing much  about him."  Captain Wainewright was general manager of the Burlingame back in ISO.*.. At  that time he was the whole thing, the  model, the criterion for dress, accent,  manner of walk, talk and deportment.  He was a man who knew all about polo,  golf, four-in-hands, six-in-hands, riding  trousers, pipes, race meets, and the real  thing for the true English gentleman. It  was reported that Dick Tobin had discovered him in the most select and exclusive clubs in "Luiiiion"; had talked  him into enthusiasm for California, and  had induced Mm to pa<*k up his trunks  and start for the wild and woolly west.  He came; he saw; he conquered.  The Burlingame was then just rounding into aristocratic form jis a  blooming  At the Top of the Heap.  The Noonday at .Silverton has shipped  580 tons of ore, as much as has been  shipped this year by any mine at Silver-  ton. The other shippers, up to date, are:  Wakefield 580 tons, Comstock 120, Emily  Edith 00, Fidelity 3, and Vanconver 320.  Member of Parliament Seriously 111. **  Toronto, Ontario, November 28.���  George H. Bertram, Liberal, member for  Center Toronto, is seriously ill. His condition baffles the physicians. It is doubtful if the afflicted member will ever take  his seat iu parliament again.  EXPECT TO  SMELT REPUBLIC  Ores at Grand Porks.  Mayor Manley of Grand Forks, accompanied by his wife and little daughter,  arrived in the city last evening. During  the past ten days they have made an extensive tour of the northwest.  "We expect to smelt the Republic ores  on this side of the line," said Mr. Mauley.  "I am interested with a company who  will ask the next parliament to grant a  charter for a railroad which will secure  this desideratum. If this franchise is  secured, aud I have no doubt that it will  be, we will at once take steps to build a  railroad from a point where the Kettle  river crosses the boundary near Cascade,  tlience to Grand Forks, thence to a point  on the boundary at Carson. We are now  operating,, in conjunction'with another  company that will construct the lines on  the other side, connecting one" terminus  of our line, namely that .iieai_ Cascade,  with Spokane, aiid" 'the Carson terminus  with Republic. To secure a franchise between these two points on the boundary  has been the undoing of other promoters,  but I think this difficulty has been practically overcome.  " As a matter of fact 1 do not know  just what may be the ultimate end of the  proposed railroad. Our primary purpose  is to tap the Republic country. Tn aii  probability a line -will be built up the  north fork of Kettle river from Grand  Forks, in order to reach the Greenwood  aud adjacent camps.  "The Granby smelter at Grand Forks  is to be a world beater. President  Shaughnessy of the C. P. R. has pronounced it the greatest proposition of its  kind that he has ever seen, There are at  present about 300 men employed on the  construction work. The capacity of tlie  sniolter at the outset will be .".GO tons per  day. This will be increased to 1000 tons  shortly, and the management declare  their intention of eventually increasing  the daily~~capacity���to~3Q0() """tons'; The-  water power which is now being built  will cost $75,000, and it is expected to de- ]  velop 2000 horse power. Tlie water i.s J  conducted through a flume, which is over  a mile long, 12 feet wide and 10 feet deep.  At the wheel the water has an actual  drop of 38 feet. The build ii.g.s of the  smelter will cover a ground area of about  four acres."  WANT TO BUILD A WHARF WITH  Borrowed Money.  A special meeting of the city council  pwas held yesterday afternoon for tho  purpose of considering what action should  be taken with respect to the petition for  the repair of the city wharf. The proceedings of the meeting showed that  everything wtis in readiness for the submission of a bylaw to provide funds for  the desired work, and the motion of alderman Fletcher for the introduction of a  bylaw to raise $3000 for the work by debentuies was not opposed by any member  of the council. The bylaw recited that  $5000 worth of 1 i per cent debentures  should be offered for sale, repayable in 30  years. It was put through its several  stages and received its third reading.  It was decided to take the vote of the  ratepayers upon it on Monday, December  11th, and iu order that the voting upon  the other bylaws may take place on the  same day, it was decided to postpone the  voting upon them from December ."5th to  December Hth.  The invitation of F. W. Peters, of the  Canadian .Pacific Bailway Company, to  the members of the city council to take  in a complimentary excursion over the  Robson-Peuticton road on December 7th,  was accepted with thanks.  A enmmunication was received from  the deputy commissioner of lands and  works, stating that the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company owned the water front  from Ward stieet wet. A motion was  made that the council apply to the government to have the right to the lemain-  der of the water front -within the city  limits vested in the city.  The tenders of the Breadmore Belting  Company for the supply of belting at the  electric light "station was accepted. The  price quoted was $2..'50 a foot.  The city engineer was instructed ,to  have bents placed under the feed pipes  from the penstock to the city's electric  light power liouse, and to box the same  in at an estimated cost of $2.>0.  The Cubans Not Satisfied.  Havana, November 28. --Although  there has been a great deal of exaggeration with reference to risings in different  parts of Cuba, there is no doubt that, despite the tranquillity of the country sonie  appreJiension exist*-? lest within the next  few months trouble should' occur, in  the event that the United .States congress does not give definite assurance.***  respecting the future of Cuba. It is as-  .serted that a majority of the police, especially tlie members of the rural guard,  have for several weeks been adding a  fraction of tlieir salaries to a  fund ' for use in case of an  outbreak. This has been brought  to headquarteis by persons who have  usually proved reliable. It has also been  reported that "recruiting for further  emergencies" is  in  progress  throughout  the island.    ^  j Fire Apparatus Damaged.  Having Trouble With Printers.

Edward Becker, an old-time pioneer of  Ainswortli and .Slocan districts, spent,  yesterday iu Nelson on his way to Jvaslo.  Mt\ Becker has spent the past year in  Atlin. He lias some nice nuggets  which he took from his claim*-, there.  .Speaking of the gold output of that  cam]*), Mr. Becker says : "Atlm is a good  placer camp and there is gold there, but  the cieek.s an' not easily worked, both on  account of the scarcity of water and the  depth of the diggings."

Foreingners Support Diaz.  Citv op Mux ico, November 2.3.���One  of the most notable political demonstrations in the history of Mexico occurred  here this. afternoon when the foreign  residents marched to the national palace  to urge president Diaz to accept,the  nomination for reelection by the . Liberal  party next year. The American contingent was composed of a fine-looking body  of men representing every mercantile,  banking, insurance and other interests.  Most of the participants were men of  high standing in this community, including English, German and French business  men as well as Americans. General Diaz  replied to his callers in an eloquent  speech in which he deprecated the idea  that a man of his age should be selected  to carry on the executive department of  the government another four years. The  president was much touched by the demonstration.  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.  �����-  mmmm  m  mm  mm  .*__,.<=_,..  ���(__!�����=_���  '*3**3'-  iQ^iGZi&^&i.  :*��:*��*:-*$.�����*:���-?������.

Sometimes they  have been stolen for simultaneous publication; more frequently they have been  stolen tlie day after publication, given a  false date, and palmed off on the Mail  and Empire's readers as cable "hot from  the wire." The fact that the Mail and  Empire knows the Tribune's exclusive  Times cable to be a good thing is shown  by a letter from one of its editors asking  if the Tribune would sell this service.  But that paper���which has been one of  the loudest howlers in the Canadian  chorus charging Americans with pirating  English literature���evidently thought it  cheaper to steal than to buy. The question of honor apparently did not enter  into the transaction. Steps have been  taken which will either deprive the Mail  and Empire's readers of this news or  daily brand it a news thief of the most  pronounced type.  The Latest in Thirty-five Years.
