Out of a population of 46,243 tested  witli regard to Sunday labor by the  Massachusetts bureau of statistics, it was  found that no fewer than 17,994 persons  in that state are obliged to work on Sunday. It is also proved that a large part  of the Sunday labor is due to the social  custom**-, and not to necessity.  London,  November 18.���The absence  of news of any sort regarding the  movement against Ladysmith seems  to  show  that the Boers are repeating the strategy  adopted by them at Dundee,.when  they  appeared in front and endeavored to  effect   a   surrounding    movement.      This  seems to be  tlieir  object  regarding Estcourt.    As  it is impossible   that  relief  should reaclr there for days to come, it is  not unlikely that a further retiring movement   on   Moorie   river   will   be  made.  Major Wolfe  Murphy has   returned to  Pietermaritzburg to take command of the  line of command, and colonel Long of the  Royal Artillery  has taken  command at  Estcourt. :   The    forces    now   at    Pie-  termaritzburg   , are      too     weak      to  admit reopening communication. Cavalry  especially is  badly  needed, and  it  will  necessarily take a  long  time  to  obtain  either, owing to the difficulty of entraining and  the  necessity of allowing the  horses to rest after the long sea voyage.  From the indiscriminate distribution  of  the various divisions at unexpected points,  it seems clear that the original plan's' of  general Buller have.been wholly changed.  Not the slightest word regarding :the new  plans has been .allowed to escape.  It has been reported that the Belmont  fight-arose about the advance of a British column to relieve Kimberley, but this  seems incorrect, all the most reliable  accounts reporting the engagement as  growing out of a reconnaisance.  The announcement of the* arrival of.  geueral Methun at Orange river, however,  doubtless means that arrangements are  in a forward state to advance from that  point if the advance has not already began, Kimberley was safe on Friday,  November 10th. Last Tuesday a Boer  force of 000 entered Aliwal and hoisted  the flag of the republic. The activity of  the Boers in this locality would almost  point to the 'necessity of insuring the  safety of the column marching to 'the"  lelief of'Kimberley froni this direction or.'  from Bloemfontein.  In view of the reticenceof general Buller,'  it, is almost useless to speculate regarding  the report of a "movement towards Kimberley. It can only bejnteiMed'to.with*-;  drawthe Boers, if possible, from Natal.  The object of the occupation of Aliwal  North* is understood to prevent the large  quantity of ammunition at Heizehel  being forwarded to Jamestown and then  to Queenstown. Then the Boers have  given evidence- that no looting shall be  done and no goods seized. There are reports of mysterious movements of Free  State commands along the Orange river,  and important developments are expected. Everything tends to show that  the relief of Kimberley could only be  undertaken by a strong column.  Lorenzo Marquez continues to send out  Joubert stories-., the latest being that no  news had been received from him at Pretoria for three days.    It is rumored he',  was taken prisoner.  It is announced that the duke of Con-  naught was among the first to seek employment in the war. and even offered to  waive his seniority for this p_iirpp.se, but  it was not thought expedient that an officer so senior to sir Redvers Buller should  serve under liim. The duke was greatly  disappointed.  The prince of Wales and the duke of  Cambridge have promised to attend today's concert organized by Mrs. James  BroAvn-Potter, the actress, in aid of the  fitting out of tlie Maine as a hospital ship  for use in South African waters.  Special dispatches from Pietermaritz-  burg and Lorenzo Marquez .say that  Ladysmith is bombarded night and day,  and hard pressed. On November 9th,  having during the night placed men  closed to the town, the Boers after a  heavy bombardment began an assault,  but were repulsed at every point with  heavy losses. The Boers have destroyed  one of the bridges over the Tugela river.  Durban, Thursday, November 10.���A  gentlemau who was arrested at Johannesburg, and taken to Pretoria and released,  has arrived here via Delagoa-Bay. While  at Pretoria he was confined ou the race  course with bhe military prisoners, comprising 53 officers and 875 noii-com-  missioued officers and men from Natal,  10 officers and non-commissioned officers  from Mafeking, and 4 men from Fort  Tuli. Tlie prisoners' guards, who almost  exclusively are Germans, and the artillery  men manning the forts were almost all  Germans. The prisoners were well fed  and shown every consideration. Most of  the officers were removed to more comfortable quarters in the town.  Work Commenced on the Payroll,  J. E. Saucier of Rossland passed  through Nelson on his way from the Payroll mine, in East Kootenay, which was  recently purchased by a company of  which Mr. Saucier is manager. Jle reports placing twenty odd men at work ab  the .standard scale of wages, $3.50 a day.  London, November 17.���The  following  censored message from Pretoria gives details Of  the  engagement  referred   to  in  associated press despatch from   Pretoria,  Wednesday, November loth, sent out today:    "The Free .Staters had taken   up  a position on a small hill, when  an   English' battery   advanced   and     attacked  them, sending a fierce  hail of shells  on  the hill for an  hour, when   our cannou  put some shells right in the midst of the  battery and* sent   them  over behind the  hill.    Two burghers we're  killed and six  wbuuded..  When the British fell back on  Ladysmith, several shells exploded among  them, but the effect could  not  be  seen.  At midnight all the Afrikander  cannons  oh the hills surrounding Ladysmith opened   fire     simultaneously,    turning    the  quiet     darkness     of    the     night     into   a     lurid     inferno      of     whistling,  shrieking shells, speeding from all points  of the compass to the doomed city.   Several buildings on fire were seen from'the  Bui wayo hills during the day. The troops  left the city deserted, and sought shelter  on the edge of a hill to escape our death-  dealing shells."  Ca1��b Town, November 10.���It is reported from Colesburg that a quantity of  guns and ammunition belonging to the  Orange Free State," and destined for Richmond, have been captured by the British.  London, November 10.���It is reported  that- the Bi'itish government has purchased the Creusote guns ordered by (the  Transvaal but not delivered. An official  "dispatch corj"nrms the statement that captain Jr A. Ilaldane,^ of the .Gordon Highlanders, and attached to the Dublin Fusileers, and lieutenant T. H. Franklaud and  37.non-conimfasioned officers and men belonging to tne Dublin Fusileers are missing. ;The Hist of missing Durbans and  naval men is to follow. Captain Haldane  distinguished himself by his services in  India,'for wh,ieh he received bhe gold D.  S. (Companioh of the Distinguished Service'Order).;', He was also wounded at  Eland's LaagtSe,  .Lorenzo ��� Marquez, November 16.���  Secret service agents are continually arriving here from the Transvaal. A member of the Orange Free State legislature  arrived last night from' Pretoria. It is'  believed he is proceeding to Cape Town  on a mission, the object of which is im-.  known.  London, November ]7.���A dispatch  from Lorenzo Marquez says a Pretoria  paper announced last Wednesday that,  4000 burghers had left general Joubert's  force around Ladysmith to join the commandant's force near Estcourt, with a  view of intercepting tlie Biitish advance  to the relief of Ladysmith. General  Lucas Meyer, the Free State commander,  has asserted in the course of an interview  that lie is convinced that "the battle of  Eland's Laagte would be the first and  ,last Boer defeat of the war."'  London, November 10.���Advices from  Masuru, Basutoland, dated November 8bh,  say that chief Joel terrorizes the natives  by assertions that the British have been  "beaten in" every engagement and are  being driven out of South Africa, and  that he is preparing to join the Boers,  believing theirs the winning side. The  Boers are said to have supplied him with  guns which they have accompanied with  specious promises. Those who are aware  of Basuto history know that chief .Tool  and chief Jonathan had a quarrel in  their earlier years aud have never been  on the same side, chief Jonathan having committed himself to Hrib-  ish interests. Sir Godfrey Lang-  don, recent commissioner in Basutoland,  according to these dispatches lefb Masuru  on Sunday, November 7bh, in order to  meet chief Lorothodi, the principal chief  of the Bnsutos, who j.*-* ill and unable to  travel. Sir Godfrey was expected to use  every effort to prevent chief Joel taking  a foolish step. The advices go on to Fay  the country is full of reports of wonderful Boer successes, and color i.s lent to  these by the absence of reliable information of British, victories, but the chiefs  rely on the word of the government officials, who declare that a day of reckoning is coming and that disloyalty will be  punished. It is possible that bhe Boers  will proclaim a strip of Basuto territory  to the north to be their own.  make, for the reason that they have smelters of their own near the niines, and  do  not. want the ore shipped to Spokane; but  in case these rates are made by Hill, the  Canadian   Pacific   demands    a    greater  proportion   on   the  freight   transferred  from its lines to the Great Northern than  Mr. Hill is willing to concede.    The  conference has occupied  two days without  results, unless it has   been   to   increase  Hill's  determination   to   encourage   the  building of the smelter at Spokane.    The  rates   which   Mi'.   Hill   has   named   for  freight from Kootenay points  are $5 per  ton  for all-rail  shipments  to   Spokane,  and $3 per ton oii shipments from Kootenay lake points..   From a source which is  reliable and close to president Hill  ibis  learned that the estimated   net   cost of  smelting   these   Kootenay   ores   at  the  proposed Spokane smelter is   $3.25   per  ton. The    cost .  of     freight     and  refining on the bullion produced at the  Spokane plant is figured at about $0.70  per ton. This makes a total freight and  treatment rate of about $12.95 to $14.95  per ton on Slocan ores. How this compares with the rates which the Canadian  Pacific railway wishes to charge to the  smelters on its line cannot be learned  here. However, .it is evident that the  advantage is so largely in favor of Mr.  Hill's line and the Spokane enterprise  that the C. P. R. people are much worried.  DUNSMUIRS FIGHT FOR CHINESE  Trying to Keep Them in the Mines.  Victor ia,  November   17.���[Special   to  The Tribune]��� At  the coal  mines  arbitration at Nanaimo today, lawyer  Cassidy raised a point against   the   evidence  given by-the witnesses  for  the  government that they were prejudiced because,  as drawn from them in cross-examination,  they belong to the  miners' union,  which  desires to exclude Chinese. The attorney-  general  Objected  to this  feature of .the.  cross-examination,  on  the   ground  that  the witnesses   were   not   authorized   to  speak  for  the  union.     James Perry,  a  witness who had had experience of Chinese in the  Union  mines, said they. were  only employed in pushing .cars  when he  was there.    He thought1  they  should  be  able     to      speak     English.        Lawyer  Cassidy  thereupon t asked   him  whether  ponies are not employed to draw  cars in  English'mines,  and if pOuies_.eapU j speak1  English.** "-- Another"wittie^s^^who" told  about the employment of mules, also met  with the same argument.    From William  Edmonds, who had worked in  Wales, it  was elicited that many Welsh miners cannot   pspeak   or understand   English, but  are on no account considered dangerous,  as, the  boss  speaks  to  them  in Welsh.'  Albert J.  Hill,  a mining engineer, was  called by Cassidy.    lie said he had had  experience  in   managing   coal   mines in  Cape Breton  aud   with  Chinese in con-  rtructiou work on  the Canadian Pacific  taihvay, and  did  not think it necessary  that a miner underground should be able  so read and write English.    Good progrepSs  was made, nine witnesses being examined.  Carlyle Silver Plated.  llOsbLAND, November 17.���At a crowded  public meeting tpnight, held in the city  hall, W. A. Carlyle, the chief engineer of  the Le Roi and th_e_British America, _Cor__  poration mines, on the occasion of his  leaving the camp to 'take charge of the  Rio Tin to mine, in .Spain, was presented  with a silver service and center piece by  mayor Goodeve, on behalf of the citizens  of Bossland.     A  handsome  illuminated  SCHOOL TRUSTEES WILL MOVE  To Secure Municipal Control.  At the  regular meeting of the school  trustees,  which  Will  be held  on Friday  evening, November 24th, a move will be*  made in the matter of securing municipal  control  Of the city schools.   There appears to be some misapprehension  as to  which body should move in this  matter.  The members of the city council think  the move should be made by the school  trustees, and the latter say  that  the request for municipal  control  should proceed from the city council.    Both bodies  profess to be anxious that Nelson should  be made a separate school district, and as  the government has expressed its willingness to  introduce  the necessary  legislation, there is no reason  why  the  school  should not be turned over to the municipality at  the  end  of  the present fiscal  year.    With respect to the establishment  of a high school, the trustees say that at  present  there are- not  sufficient   pupils  who have passed the entrance examination to warrant the  establishment  of a  high   school   under  present   conditions..  This difficulty, it is said, will probably;be  removed after the next  entrance  examination, but if this should not  be the case  the city, in the event ofthe school beiug  turned over  to  the  municipality, would  establish a high school at once.  A Wreck on the Bossland Road.  One of the strangest Avrecks in railroading happened early Thursday morning on the Red Mountain road us the up-  bound freight was passing through Sheep  Creek canyon, says the Rossland Record.  Tu the middle of the train was a carload  of Ontario apples billed, to Steen & Co.  The freight was running slowly along the  canyon just at the deepest point alongside the. falls, when without warning the  car turned over, cut loose from its neighbors and rolled to the bottom of the  canon, nearly 200 feet below. There it  broke up with a crash that shivered  every board and beam into t_  Oue pair of trucks landed on  side of the creek while the remaining  wheels fell on the opposite bank.  As for the apples they are floating down stream to the Pacific, via  Northport, Marcus and Portland.. Tlie  marvelous part of it all is that* none ' of  the other cars were thrown off. One was  slightly damaged, but the injuries ciicl  not exceed $5." The wreck took place on  a heavy grade, yet the "whole train was  automatically stopped bythe air brakes'."  It will be practically impossible to save  the broken car.  jothpicks.  the east  Fighting Over Ore Bates.  An ore rate eonbrover��y is said to be on  at Sb. Paul between the traffic officials of  the Canadian Pacific and president Hill  of the Great Northern, in which many  mine owners of the Kootenay district are  interested. It appears that J. J. Hill is  determined that a smelter shall be located  at Spokane, if low rates on his road to  and from the mines to that city can  bring it about. It is stated here that he  will put some money into such a smelter.  The Canadian Pacific officers are opposed  to the low ral-j'H whieh Hill hit**- .agreed to  and very cordially worded address accompanied the testimonial. Eulogistic  speeches of Mr, Carlyle and his services  to the province and Bossland were made  by the mayor, T. Mayne Daly, C. 11.  .Mackintosh and several of the prominent  mining men of Rossland. All thespeakers  while congratulating the distinguished  engineer on his -.well-earned promotion,  expressed the universal regret at his departure. Mr. Carlyle made a very feeling  reply to all the good wishes that wore  heaped upon him. Ifc leaves liossland  in the morning.  Bullion From Cariboo Mines.  A.si$<,'R< >'������'., November 17.���A large  shipment of bullion arrived down from  the Cariboo mine last night in care of  William Parker and several guards. The  amount sent down is not made public as  yet. It is stated that the mine is still  working aud another shipment of gold  will be made before the season closes.  The outlook for this property for the future is remarkably good, and the output  next season will be very much larger  than heretofore. {  New Westminster to be on the  Main Line.  Vanx'ouvkk, November 17.���It is stated  that the Canadian Pacific railway contemplates making a change iu their entrance to Vancouver. Instead of proceeding direct to Vancouver from Westminster Junction, as at present, it i.s understood that tlie road vi ill be diverted  to New Westminster, and thence to Vancouver, makiog New Westminster a  station on the main line.  1 Noonday Elects Officers.  i  The Noonday-Curley Mining Company  at its-annual meeting this week elected  the, following .officers; H. J,. Stewart,  -president; J. Al. M. Henneduiu, secre-  =tary-fcreasurer ;J and Andrew Stewart,  John Tinling, William Tyson and S.  Jji. Morris, directors, * The company is  working a crew of seventeen men upon  the Noonday property. Most of the men  are employed in development, but considerable high-grade ore is being taken  put. Another shipment is being hauled  to Silverton, .and a shipment of three  cars will be made to the Trail smelter  next week. This**, ore nets the company  $1000 a car after freight and treatment  is deducted.  ���  What Does the Answer Mean?  There is a great deal of speculation on  tlie part of those a**, ho are opposed to the.,  Canadian Pacific give-away deal as to the  meaning of the answer which mayor  Neelands received from Victoria, with  respect to the transfer of government  lots to the railway company. The an-  bwci was that the government-was~~pre--  pared to carry out the original agreement. The speculation turns upon the  point whether the government will accept  the modifications wliich the city council  has inade and turn the government lots  over to the railway company without requiring the railway company to turn tho  recreation ground lots over to the government in trust for the city.  Meeting of Dundee Shareholders.  A meeting of the shareholders of the  Dundee .Mining Company will be held in  Rossland today For the purpose of considei ing the offer Of nn English syndicate  to purchase the entire assets*; of the company upon a stock basis in a new company which is to be formed. It is said  that the present company is out of funds  with whieh to prosecute development,  but should the offer made be accepted  there would be $200,000 available at once  for development. The terms of the London syndicate's offer have not yet been  made public. ^__  Shook up by an  Earthquake.

MEN'S OUTFITTER  Sign of the RED  HAT, Baker St., Nelson  ��to (KrUnoi**  Thk coHicrenoe between the city council and the officials of the railway company resulted much the same as did the  conference between marquis Jto of Japan  and Li Hung Chang of China at the conclusion of tlie Chinese-.Japanese war. Ito  simply turned down every proposal made  by Li. George McL. JJrown may not be  an Ito; but there is one thing sure, the  city council is not made up of Li Hung  Changs, for they surrendered every point  in the game without even a struggle.  Had Nelson's pioneers been made of like  material, the Canadi. n PaeHh: would now  own all the water in Cottonwood and  Ward creeks, all the water frontage, and  everything else worth having.  Thk employment of special coustables  by the Payne mine is an admission on  the part of the Semlin government that  the .Slocan district is the home of men  that aro unwilling to live within the law.  It is also an admission by the .Semlin  .government that the regularly appointed  provincial constables are either unable or  unwilling to enforce the laws. It is more.  It is a distinct intimation that the force  power of the Semlin government will be  used to aid the Silver-Lead Mines ApSso-  ciiition  to  establish   a  $3 a day as the  rate of .wages for skilled miners in the  Slocan. If the Payne mine is allowed  the privilege of hiring armed men, clothed  with power to make arrests, what is to  prevent every other mine in the Slocan  doing the same? With the roads leading to the mines guarded by  arined men, who know no .ma.ter  except the mine marager that pays them,  what is to prevent the mines being  flooded with Italians, and Austrian-, and  Ilungaiians, and Poles, and professional  "scabs," The Semlin government has  been accused of being weak, and it has  been intimated that it is half-hearted in  enforcing the eight-hour law. We are  afraid that the accusation and the intimation are based on something more than  mere hearsay.   ���Thk eight-hour lawiseithor legislation"  in the right direction or otherwise.    If it  is right, then the government should, by  their   actions,  show   that  it   is  on  the  statute book to slay.   They should keep  their hands off in tho fight between the  employee and employer over tho question  of wages.    When appealed to by the employer for  force  to "protect" the  men  who are always willing to help cut the  throats   of   their   fellow-workers,   they  should be told that the other side hits not  asked   for force  to  " protect" them   in  their efforts to  maintain a  living  wage.  If the  .Semlin  government   has   chosen  sides iu  the fight���and it has done so  by allowing mining companies to swear  in special constables to maintain law and  order in  law-abiding communities, then  ft. P. Green, M. R. P., J. M. Kellie, M. P. P.,  J.' M. Martin, M. V. P., F. J. Dc&ne, M.P.P.,  Thomas   Forster,  M. P. P., Ralph  Smith,  M.P.P., and Robert MePherson, M.P.P.,  should give Hon. Mr. Semlin notice that  his government uo longer has their support.   Such action would bring matters  to a head.     A new election would result,  and the issue would be decided by a majority of the ballots.  Tiik men now in control of affairs at  Nelson are willing to surrender everything for what appears to , be a temporary advantage. Were the Canadian  Pacific to demand the waterworks as  one condition of their making Nelson the  company's headquarters, it is safe to'say  there are members of the council who  would be willing- to make' the transfer  without as much as a protest. The  people of a town who are unwilling to  stand up for their just rights on all occasions, will find in time that tliere is no  town to stand up for.  Doing vs. Shouting,  Toronto tilobe.  The Tory politicians shout but they  do not act.  ��� The Liberal government is a doing  lather than a blowing: concern.  During all the years since confederation that the Conservatives were in  office they did not contribute a dollar  nor a man to the wars of the empire.  The Liberal government, at a cost of  some hundreds of thousands of dollars,  has sent a contingent of J 000 men to  fight for the empire in South Africa.  The Tory politicians shouted about in-  creasetL trade__with _Great_Britiau_and  imposed protectionist taxes on Briti.h  goods.  The Liberal government reduced the  protectionist taxes and enacted a preference of 25 per cent in favor of imports  from Great Britain.  Imperialists agitated for penny postage,  but nothing was done until the Liberals  came into office, and the movement was  forced to a successful issue by the energetic hand of Mr. Mulock.  Imperialists asked for the abrogation  of the German and Belgian trade treaties. Conservative governments could do  nothing. A Liberal ministry came into  office, took heroic measures, and the  treaties wete denounced.  Conservative governments pottered"  and trilled for years with the deepening  of the canals, carrying on the work at a  snail's pace, showing a spurt of activity  on the eve of every general election.  Three years ago the Liberals carried the  country. Today the work of deepening  the canals to fourteen feet is practically  completed.  Liberals do not shout: they do, and  they can well afford to let the country  put the record of their performances side  by side with the unctuous lip-service and  vociferous tongue-work of their opponents.  Have a Motto.  K.islo Kooloiiuuin.  It would be well for everyone who has  the interests of the community in which  they reside at heart, to write a motto  and paste it in their hats; that they will  always, and under all circumstances,  stand up for their town, its institutions  and its resources. If they cannot speak  favorably, they will not give utterance to  anything of an unfavorable nature. If  these rules arc adhered to, it is surprising  what a difference it will soon make in the  feelings of home people as well as those-  who visit the section for the purpose of  investment. ,,  FOR SALE  BUSINESS AND RESIDENTIAL  PROPERTY  30 by 120, Baker street." between Josephine and  Wiird streets , > ���   50 by 120, Baker street, between Josephine and Hall  streets, corner t ,   25 by 120 with improvements, south side of Vernon  streot ,  sooo  50 by 120 with improvements, south side of Vernon  streot  6000  2} lots with cottage rented at .15 per mouth, Victoria  street  3500  2 lota with cottage rented at .20 per month, Stanley  street  3000  6 lote in block I4D, all cl oared and fnucod in  2500  AGENTS FOR  J. & J.

A  pyramid of cans toppled over and a  splash of yellow lusciousness was flung  upon the manager's golf-shirt. Jessie  wiped a sticky blotch from her rosy face.  A box of freshly labeled tins was in disgrace.  "Cussed carelessness !"  exclaimed   the  angry manager.    "See here, Dave I"  "Sir?"  "Another burst. Can set away with a  leak in it, again. Why don't you stop  such slovenly work? "  "The mender went over 'em all," muttered Dave.  "With his eyes shut," commented the  manager, savagely.  "Accidents will happen," the cook persisted. *'.  "If there's another in your department,  there'll be a shake-up."  The nianage'r's tone closed, the conversation with a sort of bang. It hurt Dave  as though his finger had been caught  against the door-jamb, and the worst of  the pain was that Jessie had heard. The  manager had not said anything so very  bad if he had, uot said it before Jessie.  Dave wondered if there was any foundation for the girls' gossip about the pink  shirt and all that. He turned a flushed  and injured face toward Jessie.  "Hurt, J ess?" he asked.  "No,"  she laughed,  still beckoning  to  ger had not set some eucalyptus trees  around the works, as she stood in the  doorway for a moment and gazed longingly at the mountains half hidden by a  gray gauze of dust. "Looks like a Santa  Ana," said the wheezy one.  "Trays !" sang out a shrill trio of sopranos in the cutting-room.  "Always short of trays ! I believe the  boys eat 'em!" growled the manager,  passing through to the kitchen and shaking things up all along the line. The  manager spent more time in the kitchen  than in his office, not altogether to the  gratification of Dave. The cooking was  a critical process ; and then from the back  door of tlie kitchen the manager could  keep one eye on the labeling. Privately,  Dave had expostulated to Hebe that it  didn't do the help any good to eye 'email  the time; whereat Hebe winked privately and luminously at the sealer.  The last batch of the forenoon had been  put in to cook, and Dave scanned the  water'closely to see if a tell-tale bubble  was escaping from a leaky can. Suddenly the water quivered. Dave felt a little  -jar, and heard a crash as if a tall stack of  loaded trays had tojipled over in the cutting-room.  True to his trick, the manager leaped  up and stood astride a corner of one of  the big tanks, peering across the half-  partition, to see what the mischief   jecting courtesies. He was dumb, pale,  unreconciled. It was his weakness to  take himself too seriously. If nobody  else laughs at him a man should jolly  himself once in a while.  There was only one titter, and it came  from the labeling-shed. The manager  turned, colored, bit his lip, and wrung  out his brown side-whiskers. Then one  word of fire escaped him, aud he hurried  off, the pink shirt clinging to him like a  shiny sticker on a can.  When the new pie label came out.it  was decorated with a striking figure of a  mountain lion showing his teeth aud  crouching- for a spring���which was at  once business-like and appetizing, the  manager said to the artist.  "Jessie," Dave whispered, as they sat  on the porch one September evening,  after she had put on the ring, " would it  have been any. different if. there hadn't  been any'quake ?"  Jessie laughed, -v" Who knows ?" she  evaded. .Jessie was always rather elusive;  but.Dave caught her in his arms and took  several satisfactory answers.  THE    NOVEL   WATER-WHEEL    PLANT.  There is at present in successful operation in the pumping station of the city of  Columbus, Ohio, a.jplant .installed by the  American Impulse Wheel Company of  New York, which is unique in character             Western Electric Company's 100-light arc  dynamos, which was the dynamo selected  by the engineer in charge. This speed,  050 revolutions per minute, necessitated  the use of impulse wheels only 18 inches  iu diameter, and in order to obtain 110  horse power from each unit 18 nozzles  were required. These were arranged  with 6 runners, 3 nozzles to each runner,  .since a larger number of nozzles per runner would have reduced the efficiency below the guarantee.  The use of contracting nozzles to keep  up the efficiency at light loads was prohibited by the great cost and complication  of so large a number of contracting  nozzles. Ordinary butterfly valves were  accordingly used and the cam mechanism  for operating these valves, arranged to  actuate them one after the other instead  of all together as had previously been  common practice? As a result of this ingenious arrangement, all the valves in  operation, except one, would be wide open  and working, therefore, at their maximum efficiency, and thus the low efficiency of a partly closed butterfly valve  would have an almost inappreciable effect in lowering the total jet efficiency of  the machine, and at six values of the  load, when a valve had just completely  closed, would have no such effect at all.  The rigid requirements with regard to  efficiency _ having   been   thus   complied  A   FEW   OF   THE   BOEE   LEADERS.  is  RODERICK    DHU:    "Come, one, come all;   this .rock shall fly from its firm base as soon as I!"  the can's. That was all, but itseemed to  soothe Dave, and he laughed. Jessie  laughed,' too. The manager was in his  office, seriously divesting himself of apricot jxiice tind sugar.  It seemed cooler in the steamy kitchen,  though the mercury was rising; Through  the open door Dave soon saw the manager strolling among the hurrying cutters.  Some of the girls could halve the 'cot  and flip out the pit with one quick twist  of knife aud thumb. The motion seemed  simple, but you could not understand it  at first sight.  "Have 'em look a little sharper after  their sorting, Miss Bumble!" the manager  called, after a flash of his quick eye  around the room.  "All right, sir!" said the "forelady,"  who was clicking a hole with a ticket-  punch in the tag of a fat and wheezing  cutter, who had brought her pile of pits  to get credit for having finished a box of  the 'cots. A hole in her tag was worth  six cents to her. "My, ain't it hot 1" she  puffed, wiping her face with her apron.  It was late in July and the sun beat remorselessly on the corrugated-iron root.  The fat woman wondered why the mana-  Tliero came a creaking sound. The  building swayed, the partitions heaving  and the boards grinding against each  other. There was another jar, as if a  freight-shifter had bumped into the cannery���then a tremendous splash, nnd  sprays of water hissed upon the-sealer's  hot irons'^'  A second of staring, startling silence  was followed by a chorus of shrieks that  overwhelmed all things. After the earthquake was over, the girls had time to be  frightened.  "My God!" yelled the sealer, "the boss  is parboiled!"  .For a quivering moment the whole cannery seemed horror-stricken, then all  rushed for the tank. One woman fell in  a faint, and the others swept by her.  Dave stood as if paralyzed, but with a  queer look on his face that was either  lunacy or amused self-possession. There  were sounds of a .struggle in the tank,  but no cry was heard.  With blanched face the sealer brushed  by Dave and reached for the steam valve,  " No," said Dave, holding him back,  **-* that's a cold tank." 7  The manager was clambering out, re*  and which presents a number of interesting engineering features. The director  of public improvements of that city finding that the pumping capacity of the  station was greater than the city's needs  required,|cast about him for some means  of utilizing this capacity, and hit upon  the, idea of using the surplus water that  the pumps were capable of supplying to  drive water wheels direct connected to  dynamos, tiie current thus generated being used for supplying light to the surrounding district by means of arc lamps.  Specifications were accordingly prepared  and submitted to the leading water  wheel manufacturers, with the result  that the plan proposed by the American  Impulse Water Wheel Company was accepted as the one giving the best promise  of fulfilling the requirements.  Tlie specifications were very rigid in  their requirements with regard to both  efficiency at all loads and to speed governing under sudden and great changes  of load. Tlie difficulty-' of the problem  was also much enhanced by-reason of the  very limited -space available for the machines and piping, and by; the high speed  required  for   direct connection   to   the  with, the problem .of speed governing  wtis next attacked. The small diameter  of the'runners, rendered necessary hy the  high speed, so far reduced their momentum that it was necessary to add a heavy  fly wheel in order to keep the variations  of speed within the guaranteed limits.  The high speed also prohibited the use of  the ordinary cast-iron fly wheel. The  wheel was accordingly made with a steel  rim shrunk on to a cast-iron web. The  governor is the ordinary mechanical relay actuating six cams, the connection  between the cam shaft and the governor  being by gear and pinion.  The water chambers were cast in two  pieces, the nozzles being bolted on so as  to come in a rigid position with reference  to the runners. This large casting rested  on the cast-iron base and was bolted to  it. The casing was made of riveted boiler  iron in two parts, the upper half being  provided with eye-bolts for lifting. The  details, of the piping, receiver, etc,, are  clearly enough shown in tlie accompanying-Illustrations. TliorbniTi Reid, to whom  was entrusted tlie -task of overcoming  the difficulties presented by this new  departure in water wheel engineering.  General   Piet Joubert  (Sliem  Piet)  perhaps the second  most prominent figure   among   the   Boers.      Long-headed,  shrewd, eolde and  calculating, he is also  by no  means  a typical  Boer.    He  has  paid two or three visits to England, and  perhaps  is  one    of   the   three  or   four  in the inner government   circles in  Pretoria who realizes  what war  with  England     means.        Still   he   in    nO    way  lacks  physical  courage ;  he  has   shown  that time  and again.    He  is  essentially  a time-server, a trimmer, a sitter-on-the-  fence.       When   he   contested  the   presidential election against Kruger, no one  took his candidature very seriously.    He  was so obviously put up as a vote-splitter  to ensure Kruger's return.  His religious views are not obtrusive,  and he has never been found out in any  very bad financial transactions. As  a general in the field he is cool and  clever, and a thoroughly expert exponent of Boer fighting tactics, which are  He is now in command of the Boer army  before Ladysmith.  A man who in a quiet, unostentatious,  but deadly effective way, has done as  much as anybody to engender bitter  feelings between' Boer* aud Uitlander, is  the present chief justice of the Transvaal, judge Gregorowski.  An Orange Free Stater of Russo-Polish  extraction, he was  specially  brought  to  Pretoria,  inducted   in  the  rites  of full  burghership, and elevated to  the  bench,  for the purpose  of sentencing  the sixty  odd reform prisoners after  the Jameson  raid.    No Transvaal judge���Kotze, Ames-  hoff, Morice, or Jorissen���could be  trusted to be  sufficiently   severe,  Draconian,  Jeffreys-like.    So they imported  Gregorowski.    Right well he did his work.   Not  only were the sentences  terribly drastic,  but the method of the man in  delivering  the death sentences (afterwards commuted), aud   his   trickery   in   permitting a  pleading of guilty  to certain   counts  of  the indictment, made the final scene of  the trial one of the most terribly, affecting ever witnessed in a court of   justice.  The   Transvaal    sttite   secretary,   Mr.  Reitz, formerly president of the Orange  Free State, where he succeeded, but in no  way profited by the example of, the late  president Brand, is a pathetic figure.   Old  beyond .his years���senile, almost, suffering  from  an   incurable  disease���at the ,  beck and   call  aud   entirely'- under  the  thumb of Kruger, he signs documents put  before   him-without  reading  their contents, or if reading them, not understanding"-what, they   are about.    A '-shiftless1 "���"  political), not rich",  as are others"in high-  offices, because he-came to the Transvaal  too late, and   most  of the* pickings were  picked.  Besides, he is passing honest, anil  almost an  old   gentleman  to boot.    II is'  shere is  the'almshouse,  and" his  need a .  pension".     lie   lugs   superfluous   oil. the  stage.     ' . - .  Thelandrost, or chief civil magistrate,  of Pretoria is one J. S. Srnit, and he is a  man entitled to high honor in his own  land. He recently charged the public  funds with a sum of over ��80,000, alleged  to have been spent in constructing and  repairing certain streets inPretoria. A  question arising as to the legitimacy of  tliis expenditure, a committee of the  volksraad was appointed to inquire. Smit  could only produce vouchers for about  half the sum. The inquiry closed without reporting. Next session it was mentioned in the volksraad, and on the proposal of John Meyers (a bosom friend and  great supporter of the president) it was  rasolved~tha"**rthe_matter_should~be~coiv**  sidered as closed. Nothing has ever been  heard of the missing ��10,000, and iSmit  continues in office.   '  Quite the most patriotic Boer and rabid  anti-Briton is a member of the volksraad,  named Sitoffel Tosen. This man is a  renegade Englishman, and his name was  Stephen Townseud. * His father was a  private in a line regiment quartered at  I'ietcrmarit/.burg. Many years ago ho  deserted to tho Transvaal, and fought for  the Boors in the war of 1 SS I. His sou,  the present bearer of the Boer uariant of  a good British name, is an extraordinary  ignorant bigot, A few years ago, when  the monster petition from the Hand,  praying humbly for butter representation, whs presented to. the raad, Tosen,  from his .seat, called out, of course hi  Taal : "If they want the franchise  they've got to fight for it!" Again, he  -was known to have been heavily bribed  to promote the passage of the dynamite  monopoly bill. The bribe took the form  of a bet of ��500 to a shilling that the bill  would not pass. Of course, it passed, ,  and the loser gladly paid up the sporting  odds. In supporting the bill, Tosen -  gravely said that "the word of God hail,  come to him overnight telling him that it  would be for the good of the country for  the bill to be passed."    This is textual.  A really typical Boer i.s Harem! Vorster,  junior. lie has been mixed with most of  the Pretoria financial scandals, and lie  always comes out branded, but unscathed,  in position. Over the Kelat railway deal  he received a gold watch and some  "spiders" or four-wheeled carriages. A  newspaper openly accused him, by name,  of accepting bribes, and the president  himself defended Vorster'.-^ action, saying  that he saw no harm in members receiving such presents. The vagaries of "Vorster would fill chapters* and he is wot at  all an unfair exsunple of Boer officialdom. THE TRTBTOTE: .KELSON*, B.C.  SATURDAY, ^TOYEM:BEE  18; 1899.

The fact of the matter is,  the loyalty  of the French-Canadian citizens of Canada has in these latter clays yet to be put  to the test.    The circumstance ��� that half  the male population  of  Quebec did not'  rush to the recruiting offices when it was  made known  that a Canadian regiment  was to be enlisted for South Africa does  not prove anything.    There   is a wide  difference between Ontario and  Quebec,  for. wliich  the  former  should   learn  to  make allowance.   Quebec is   essentially  Canadian ; its population is native to the  soil.    A   large   percentage   of   Ontario's  population! is insular born, or but a generation removed from it.    It is  scarcely,"  therefore, reasonable to expect  that our  French-speaking     citizens,    who     were  never   before * so   prosperous  and   contented,  should manifest  so keen an interest in the motherland's  foreign entanglements  W we  ourselves  do.    But  is it fair to charge them  for  this  reason  with disloyalty?     Can  those people of  Ontario who have been shouting "traitor"  have forgotten the brave story of Chat-  eauguay���of the three hundred French-  Canadian volunteers avIio with gallantry  that compelled  the admiration   of the  world repelled ten times their number of  American invaders ?   Or is it  that  they  do not know the history of their country ?

Yet another  ground upon which this charge of disloyalty is laid is the frequent display of  the tricolor throughout Quebec, and this  is probably the silliest of all. Tliere  clings about the tricolor iu Canada a  story of heroism which is scarcely  equalled in history. It is the story of  Froteiiac, of Champlain, of Montcalm;  the story of those unflinching soldiers of New France whose courage  and nobility have given to Canadian  history a fascination which it could  uot have possessed otherwise. He is indeed pitiably narrow-minded who would  deprive a brave people from paying  respect to their illustrious ancestors. One  might as well license a Scotsman of dis-  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.  loja.ty because he still cherishes the  thistle as emblematic of the discomfiture  of the English foes of his ancestors. The  veterans of the American civil war, who  at their annual reunions exhibit pride in  wearing the gray uniform of the shortlived Confederacy, are not considered disloyal.   War of the Telephones.

The  latter corporation seeks to build up a  great rival to tlie Bell company and meet  the latter in its own field. It will eventually cover the entire country from  Boston to .San Francisco. The president  of the Knickerbocker company is W. H.  Eckert, who formerly held an influential  position Avith the Bell Telephone Company, and is regarded as oue of the  shrewdest telephone men in the country.  The fact that his brother, general Thoinas  Eckert, is president of the Western Union  Telegraph Company, taken with other  circumstances, has led to the belief that  the Western Uuion Telegraph Company's  capital is to be an important factor in the  success of the Bell company's chief rival,  the Telephone, Telegraph and Cable Company.

Word was received in Nelson yesterday tliat captain Wainewright was  arrested in Rossland npou the charge of  obtaining money from Lillie Brothers of  this city upon false pretences with, intent  to defraud. As Wainewright was in  ���Spokane a few days ago, his return to  ���British.Columbia would indicate that he  has hopes of being able to finance his  present obligations. From Spokane he  wrote to several holders of his worthless  checks in this city, in wliich he said that  he intensely regretted that there were no  funds to his credit in the Bank of Montreal when his checks became due.  Chief of police Jarvis left for Rossland  last evening for the purpose of bringing  captain Waiuewright back to Xelson.  The patent collars for the fire department horses arrived from Spokane last  evening. Some pretty quick hitching is  now promised by the members of the department. *  Lieutenant-colonel Peters, D. O. C, will  inspect the JVelson company of Rocky  Mountain Rangers this evening.  Galliher <fe-Wilson yesterday filed six  '���mechanics' liens against the Little Phil  mine at Ainswortli. The claims are those  bf six miners who are attempting .to recover wages aggregating about $700.  The firemen's smoker was well patron?  ized last evening, when the members of  the department sustained their reputations as entertainers. . Several members  of the local minstrel troup lent. their  assistance and received a number of de?  served encores. The proceeds of the  smoker will go towards paying for accident policies upon the members of the  lire department.  George 15. Ellis, the Toronto jeweler  who. made the celebrated display of diamonds in Jacob Dover's window on  Dominion day, is in Nelson again. This  time he has with him a stock of diamonds  worth $120,000, which may be seen today  at Dover's jewelry house. Mr. Ellis will  leave tonight for Brandon, Manitoba.  Married at Nelson on Friday, the 17th  instant, Alexander Buchanan and Miss  Nellie Couch, both of ymir. Rev. Mr.  Frew of St. Paul's church officiated.  Born at Nelson on Wednesday, the,  15th instant, to the wife of W. F. Traves,'  ��a son.    G. O. Buchanan of Kaslo says that the  reports of the lumber, combine are wild ;  that movements are on foot with a view'  to the consolidation of the lumber interests, and these are likely to materialize, but that it will be sonic time before  all the mills in tho country' get into one,  boat. ___j_L__  The electric lights throughout bhe eityi  are improved, but still are' hardly as.  efficient as tliey should be. Were the  city to put in meters, both the light and:  the revenue would be increased.

MeBeath & Peters expect to complete  tlieir contract for laying the big water  main from Cottonwood creek to the  reservoir today.  Hon. William Paterson, minister of  customs, went to Rossland from Nelson.  He did not return on last night's train its  was expected. He probably remained  over for the Carlyle banquet.  Martin OM.eilly Ai Co. will move into  their new (|nar(,ers in the Houston block  this evening. They will luive the finest  business premises in Xelson, and the  member.**' of the firm have the enterprise  which will ensure success.  A meeting of the finance committee  will be held this morning, when a decision will be arrived at Avith* respect to  the amount of money which the council  will ask the ratepayers to vote to make  good the shortage upon waterworks and  electric light construction accounts. The  two bylaws will aggregate between  $15,000 and $20,000. As soon as the  amount is decided upon petitions will be  circulated for signature by property owners praying the council to submit the bjr-  laws in question.  A dealer in general merchandise in a  small town on one of the lines of raihvay  centering at Nelson offers one hundred  dollars for a case of fresh eggs, and makes  the broad statement that tliere never was  a case of fresh eggs sold in Kootenay. A  local firm has taken the offer and shipped  a ease of eggs laid by local hens to the  epicurean dealer.  HOTEL* ABBIVALS.  At the Phair.���R. F. Tolmie, Sandon;  A.
