London, December C.���Tlie sortie from  Kimberley on November 25th, appears to  have been much more serious than had  been supposed. Details are now arriving  of a reconnaissance in force by mounted  troops under colonel Scott-Turner at  dawn, iu the direet,on of a ridge near  Carlo.s farm, where the Boers were  strongly entrenched. Finding the Boer  pickets asleep, colonel Scott-Turner proceeded along the ridge under cover, and  rushed the Boer redoubts at 5:25 a.m., in  the face of a hail of bullets. The Boers  hoisted a white flag and fired at the  British under its protection before surrendering.  Owing possibly to the exhaustion of  tlieir ammunition the British were unable to follow up the attack and seize a  large Boer laager, about three hundred  yards ahead, especially as Boer reinforcements were seen approaching, and the  enemy Avas keeping up a heavy fire from  the shelter of the thick bush. During  the sortie an armored train reconnoitered  north and south, while a considerable  force of British, with Held guns and  maxims, advanced towards Spytfontein,  holding the Boers in check in that direction. Ten guns were engaged simultaneously, and, viewed from the conning  tower, an artillery duel seemed proceeding in every direction except towards  Kenilworth, the fusilade being terrible at  S o'clock.  Having no force sufficient to hold the  position he had stormed, colonel Scott  Turner began to gradually retire liis men.  He had a horse shot under him and a  bullet went through the fleshy part of  his shoulder. Several men had terrible  wounds. It i.s alleged that tlie Boers  used Martinis.and explosive bullets, and  that they frequently tired at the British  ambulance wagons. The British captured  twenty of the enemy. There appears to  be home doubt as to whether 1 his was  the reconnaissance in which, according to  the announcement of the war office, colonel Scott Turner was, killed, or whether  that officer met his fate in a subsequent  sortie.

Ladysmith has established -helio-  graphic communication Avith Frere, and  it is reported that all ��was well up to  Sunday. A dispatch from the Boer laager  by Avay of I.orenzoMarquez dated Thursday, November 30th, confirms the report  that the commandos had been closing  in upon Ladysmith, and mounting  big gun.*. in new positions. According to tire same advices a heavy  cannonade has been maintained and a  general assault had been ordered for  Thursday morning, but was countermanded at the last moment.  Modder River dispatches say that tiie  Boers are encamped amid the hills, half  way to Kimberley, but it is also added  that a large body of the enemy has  gone in the direction of Jacobsdal. It is  possible therefore therefore that lord  Methuen may endeavor to clear his right  ���flank-as fai'-as Jacobsdal-before continn--  ing his advance. He is still Avaiting at  Modder River for guns and  ammunition.  Ladysmith, December 3.���The hottest  bombardment of tlie siege took place last  Thursday. The Boers got a neAV big gnu  in position on Lombard's kop, completely  commanding the town, and shelled our  camp that day and yesterday, planting  shells witli great accuracy in the camp of  the Gordon Highlanders and Manchester  regiments, Avhere there Avere many narrow escapes. Today the enemy resumed  the bombardment, doing some very  effective shooting. Several of our guns  have been shattered by the Boer**'  big gun.         *   Dry Goods Importers Protest.

Nkav York, December 6.���The Washington correspondent of the Sun says the  state department today heard some  things about Mr. Atterbury, aa-Iio has  been designated by consul Macrum to  take care of American and British interests in the Transvaal until A. S. Hay  reaches Pretoria, that adds to the embarrassment of the government in securiug  adequate consular representation there.  Briefly it is charged that Mr. Atterbury  is not the proper person to represent the  United .States. The department Avill  make its inquiries into the allegations,  and if they are confirmed it is likely that  Atterbury will not be permitted to seiwe  until Mr. Hay gets there.  MeaiiAvhile the department is looking  around for a suitable man, an American  oiti-.cn avIio i.s near enough to the Tran.****-  vaal to get there quickly, but all those  who have been suggested are too far  away. From all the department can  learn, there is not an American citizen at  Pretoria avIio is in all respects fitted to  perforin consular duties tliere. Permission for Macrum to leaA-e has already  been given. The department came, to  the conclusion that his frequent appeals  to be AA-itlidrnwii, despite the refusals of  the department, showed that liis usefulness as a representative of the United  States had been seriously impaired, and  that liis- presence iu Pretoria, officially,  was of no benefit to this government or  to Great Britain Avith the care of Avhose  subjects he A\ra,s charged.  The only plausible explanation of Mac-  rum's actions is that he is frightened out  of his A\'its. His conduct is in sharp contrast to that of the British consul Avho  represented the United States in Spain  last year, and particularly to that of the  heroic Ramsden, Avhose instrumentality  in securing the surrender of .Santiago  was incalculable, and Avhose death Avas  due to his devotion to duty.

City engineer McCulloch made a report  to the council that in order to make the  desired extensions and other changes in  the city's electric light service it Avould  be necessary to purchase supplies to the  ���value of $3550. This estimate of the city  engineer included tAvo and a half tons of  copper Avire and 42 light meters, Avhich  the council purposes to put in the hotels  and other large consumers of electricity.  The smallest meters on the list are for 20  lights and from this they run up, the  total cost of the 42 meters laid down in  Nelson being given at $1000. The cost of  the copper Avire was placed at $1775, the  rest of the expenditure being for extra  lamps, transformers, etc. By motion it  Avas resolved to empower the mayor to  make the necessary purchases.

Washington', December 0.���The interstate commerce commission today gave a  hearing to the representatives of the  several raihvay companies asking for a  further extension of the time allowed  the railways, to equip their lines Avith  safety coupling appliances, under the Act  of March 3rd, 1893. John K. Gowan,  president of the Baltimore ��fc Ohio, and  representing as chairman eighty-eight  other roads, having 80,000 miles of line,  made the opening argument. He .said  that the present withdrawal of the  175,000 unequipped cars Avould practically paralyize inter-state commerce. He  did not believe it an exaggeration to say  that no one road had enough cars for its  business. Beyond the additional extension uoav requested he said the roads  avou Id ask no further extension.  President Clarke, of the Order of Bail-  Avay Conductors, said he desired to express the consensus of opinion of men engaged in the engine and train service of  the railroads. The law Avas enacted for  the protection of the employees and the  public. Two years ago the employees  joined Avith the railroads in asking for  an extension, for although loss of life Avas  inseparable from Avork upon railroads,  the employees Avanted to be reasonable. However, the statistics showed  thr-u .luring the past -year 105.8  railroad employees were killed, and 31,-  701 had been injured. Of these OA'er six  hundred had been killed and over 0000  injured iu coupling cars, if the law had  been obeyed and had accomplished its  object, none of tliese men would haA'e  been killed or injured.  Jt seems probable, as a result of the  hearing today, that the commission Avill  grant the railroads a further extension  of six months Avithin AA'hich to comply  with the Safety Appliance Act,  THE WORTHY NEEDY SHOULD BE  Systematically Relieved.  At the meeting of the council on Monday night a communication Avas read  from Mrs. J, Laing .Stocks asking the city  council to appoint a committee to meet a  A LANDSLIDE CARRIES A WHARF  Into Kootenay Lake.  ':~-T; L. Christie, a Avell-knoAvn lawyer of  .Sandon, who is registered at the  Phair,  gave a Tribune reporter a very realistic  account of the collapse of the whaiwes of  the C. P. R. and Kaslo & Slocan railway,  .which occurred yesterday at Kaslo.    The  two wharves were being built side by  side, that of, the C. P. R.  having  about  100 feet of Avork done upon it, while the  Kaslo ��fc Slocan company's AA'as all but  completed,   the   last   pile being  dm-en  AA'hen the collapse occurred.    James McDonald of Nelson, the contractor, Avas ivt  the  extreme end  of   the  wharf  Avhen,  looking shoreward, he was amazed to see  the    Avhole    construction   quietly   and  gently slide down into the lake.   A moment afterwards all the Avorkmen  ou  the  edifice commenced to scurry shoreAvard,  and  the   wharf gave another  Avorming  movement.    The  contractor  rubbed  his  eyes and tried to grasp the situation, and  it gradually dawned upon him that   the  Avharf AA'asn't resting on a solid, substantial foundation.    A yell of warning from  those on shore reached him  aud .with  a  bound     that     Avould     Avin     him     tho  -championship    on    any   athletic   arena  he    started'    on     a    rush     for     terra  firm a,     and     "Jim"    got     there,    but  only just in time, as a moment  after  he  landed the Avhole structure slid   into  the  lake.    .Gazing   at the  eddying ���.waters,  over   Avhich    a     moment    before    had  stretched* the result of   many  days  of  good hard high-priced labor, "Jim" could  only ejaculate, "Well l*ll"be blanked !"  Mr. Christie states that, as far as he  could learn, the shoreward bed of the  lake Avas resting upon a slanting shelf of  rock, and that the piles of the tAvo  whaiwes being driven into this bed, and  combining with the action of the Avater.  had loosened it, Avith the consequence  that, Avith scarcely any Avarning, a slide <,  occurred nnd both edifices Avere as if they  had never been.

The Canadian Pacific railway excursion  to Boundary today, Avhich marks the  opening of the Robson-Penticton branch,  is.au fv.t_1 ,->f no "mall importance to  southern Kootenay aud Yale. . The excursion has been timed to fall upon the  anniversary of the excursion which last  year marked the opening of the Kootenay end of the Crow's Nest, branch.  Since then a Avonderful impetus  has. been given to the mining industry of East Kootenay. The great  coal deposits of Fernie haA'e been opened  up, and the transportation facilities  afforded havo enabled capital to traus-i  form several comparatively idle metal*-  Iifurous mining prospects into producing  mines. The transformation Avhich the  railway Avorked in East Kootenay will  be even greater in the case of Bouudaiy.  The mines of Boundary are in a measure  piweii. The railway will enable tho  companies operating them to market  their product. It will increase as A\*ell  the  market for  the  coal   of  the Fernie -  sider the feasibility of perfecting an or- |  ganization Avhich would deal with the ,  charity question of the city.

The comments are  uot to' the liking of the Moyie Leader,  find  it says "Chat Avhen  Thk Tknu'ni.  " throws mud at men of the stamp of the  " manager of the Moyie  mines and the  " other  Americans A\*ho invested in this  " country it is striking a coAvardly bloAv  " at the very men that built the country  " up that persons like the editor of The  " Trihuke might prosper   in  it."   The  Trim in 13 did not throw mud at the manager of the Moyie mines, it simply stated  that the aforesaid manager belonged to  tlie cheap-labor gang of Americans Avho  have invaded Kootenay, AA'hich is a statement of fact.    Fully one-half the opposition to the eight-hour law,-a law that is  generally  admitted  to be in  the right  direction, comes from Americans >vho are  in Kootenay either managing  mines for  alien    companies   or    for    non-resident,  aliens.    Without  exception,  these 'men  'oavc    everything    they    possess   in   the  way  of material  Avealth  lo  the liberal  laws  of British  Columbia.    They came  here poor - they arc iioav wealthy.   Tliey  came here and AA'ere given every advantage .and righL given  or accorded Canadians : advantages und rights that Canadians  are denied   in  the United  States.  Y"et, notwithstanding this, once a laAV i.s  passed that is not satisfactory to them,  tliey band together and do their utmost  to  paralyze an   industry on   whieh   the  whole    country    is    dependent.     "Were  Canadians to take like action in the slate  of Montana,  or  Idaho, or   Washington,  they AA'ould be given short shrift.   There  was no labor trouble at Moyie Avhen tlie  working mines at Moyie were managed  by  a  Canadian  named   Drewry,   Then  Avhy should there be the very day that  tlie  management-of  the same 'mines is  handed    over  to    au   American . named  CroninV Tho editor of The Trihi'nk does  not ow,o anything to Americans of  the  Cronin kind: but Americans of the Cronin  kind oavc agood deal to the editor of Tim*:  Tin hunk. J lad it not been' for the'stand repeatedly taken by the editor of TiikTiu-  runk. Americans Avould long sincu  liave  been treated in British Columbia as Canadian;-* are in   the  mining states of the  Union : they Avould have the privilege of  working for Avages in mines; but not the  right to own mines or dictate policies to  state goA'ernnients.    Wo are afraid that  tho Moyie Leader i.s one of that large and  growing class of newspapers that shout,  '���The king is dead!    Long live the king!"  The Plmmix Pioneer has added its  voice to that of the two Greemvood  papers in a demand for a member for  Boundary district. There are districts  over here in West Kootenay that Avould  like to get rid of the members they have.  The clamor for representation in legislative bodies may be justified and may be  popular; but it is foolish, for the average  member cuts a mighty narroAV SAvath in  either parliament or the legislature.  It is stated tliat Avhen at Grand Forks,  a few Aveeks ago, president Shaughnessy  expressed displeasure at the Avay his road  had been located at that place. He, so it  is claimed, said the road should have  been run through Grand Forks. If* this  is true, much of the ill-feeling that exists ,  | against the Canadian Pacific in southern  British Columbia is due to the acts of the  company's subordinate officials. It is  strange that a company that can secure  so uniformly courteous and obliging men  to transact its freight and passenger  business with the general public, should  secure so many scrubs .as heads of departments.  Speaker Henderson Was Born in Scotland.  David  It.   Henderson,  Avhom  the  Republicans have selected   to be  the  next  spetdcer of the house of representatives,  avus horn in  Old   Deer,  Scotland,  March  1 Ith,    I.S 10.       His   parents  came   to  the  'United .States when he was six   years  ol"  age, settling finally in Iowa in 1S-IJ).     Lie  obtained    his   earlier   education   in   the  public schools of that  state,  and  subsequently took a course in the Upper Ioaa-h  UmA*ersity.    When  the civil Avar broke  out he gaA*e  up the  study  of  laAV  and  shouldered a musket  and  AA'ent  to  the  front as  a  private.    He  Avas  with  the  regiment in numerous engagements  and  was Avounded slightly seAreral times.     In  a subsequent engagement he lost one of  his legs.*    After the Avounds Avere healed  he re-enlisted  as  colonel  of  the  Forty-  sixth loAva Volunteer Infantry, and  served at the head of his regiment until the  close of  the Avar.    ITe  Avas admitted  to  the bar in 1S(!5, and from that time until  1SG9 he  served  as  collector  of internal  revenue for the Third  district  of Iowa.  For two years  he Avas  assistant   United  States district attorney for the northern  division of the district of Iowa.     In 188S  he Avas elected to the house of representatives, in  Avhich   capacity  he  has  since  sei-A-ed continuously.  An Object Lesson For Abject People.  It will be remembered, Avhen "Joe"  Martin Avas fighting to giA*e Winnipeg an  independent railway outlet to the south,  that the Canadian Pacific swore A*en-  geance on "Joe" and threatened to remoA-e  their shops and headquarters from Winnipeg to StoneAvall. ".Joe"' called the  bin IT, built the railroad to the south, and  gave Winnipeg Avhat it AA'as striving for.  And the strangest part of the story is  that the C. P.

It is well known that one of (lie chief  causes .of tlie great "trek" by   the Boer  farmers was their irritation  against tlie  British authorities at the Cape, who liad  interfered   to   secure  some  measure   of  just   treatment    for   the    Kal'lir   ratios.  From that day to this tlie Voortrekker  has  pursued  a  policy of harshness and  severity towards tlie native tribes uuder  his  power,  and in   too  many   instances  'gross cruelty has been practised upon the  hapless    Kaffir.      Notwithstanding    tlie  provisions of the London convention, the-  position of the natives in the agricultural  districts  of the  Transvaal is practically  indistinguishable  from   that of slavery,  while at Johannesburg the treatment of  the colored population by the Boer police  is  brutal   in   the  extreme.    .Several   instances are cited by sir Alfred Milner in  the blue book dealing with the grievance?  of British subjects, but  it  wtis scarcely3  possible  for  the  high  commissioner   to  adequately picture the scenes of brutality enacted daily on the Band.    The following extract from a letter written last  month by a resident iu Johannesburg to  the Christian World will be a revelation  to many  people, although  the facts are  well enough known to  those acquainted  with the ''amenities" of the Rand:  "The unmitigated brutality ofthe Boer  to the Kaffir would, if known, detach  from the Boer the sympathy of every  merciful man. On Wednesday last three  Dutchmen ��ki_oclced a Kaffir down in a  public street, jumped on him and trod on  liis face as if. they would puddle it,  * Tassers-by appealed to a policeman to interfere, but lie not" only point-blank refused, but stood leering , while, the poor  wretch was nearly murdered.. Any"day  will witness ti crowd���perhaps 100 black1  wretches being driven, between mounted  policeman to the gaol for the artificial  crime of being, without a pa,*-;, or with a  pass improperly filled in. These are matters of general notoriety and'.indisputable by everyone who knows the Boer.  And many of these poor Kaffirs ate the  children of British South Africa! Ue-  movhlized by poisonous liquor and by the  immorality of this city, they go back to  their homes���north, south, east and west  ���carrying a new horror into every -part  of South African life."  Nor is this the only sort of outrage  practised on the Kaffirs. The Cape  Times, commenting on the official reports  ou native affairs, calls attention to  another serious scandal���-the defrauding  of the Bechuanas at Johannesburg by  labor touts*.    On this  point government  Is now prepared io issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atliq, B. C, and  Dawson City, YuKoq District.  interference is called for; for does the  Cape Times imagine that the Pretoria  executive will heed its complaint? We  can judge of their attitude from the fol-.  lowing incident: A Boer youth, who  feigned to he a government o_.ici.al, and  systematically and for many months  robbed Kaffirs by fining them for having  irregular passes, when found out was  tried and sentenced to four months in  prison and ��10 fine. The line was remitted and the youth let out of gaol  after serving only six weeks of his sentence. Taking all these circumstances  into consideration, can it be wondered  at that there is tt scarcity of labor at the  mines?  But to see the Boer at his worst in his  treatment of the native it i.s necessary to  go to the outlying districts. One of the  most shocking instances of diabolical  cruelty is that which has become known  as the Wakkcrstroof scandal. In this  ease a Boer farmer named L7ys is charged  with having, on May 1.5th last, tied down  four Kaffir girls with ropes and lashed  thein so severely that two of the girls  subsequently died. The evidence adduced at the preliminary examination  held on June 10th, went to shoSv that  Uys had for some time subjected the Kaffir girls to the most shameful treatment,-  as a result of which two died. It was  shown that the defendant beat the girls  with a .large, strap with a knot at the  end, andin order to perform -his work  more easily, he strapped them by their  neck to the floor.  On the Hand at least a large  proportion of colored men and women are British subjects, and Great Britain is  bound  to afford them protection.    Our agent at  l'retoria having refused to allow British  subjects to be  commaudered,  the "Cape  Boys" thereupon equally with  the white  Britishers refused service for  the native  wars of the Boers.     (War  with  native  chiefs is ��a favorite pastime with the Boer  farmer.)    As they could  not  compel the  Cape Boys to serve, the Boers commenced  that raiding and brutal   ill-treatment of  the British colored people at  Johannesburg, which was one of the  causes  tliat  let to sir Alfred Milnejt-'s famous dispatch.  Mr. Chamberlain   has -warmly  taken up  the defense of these  people,*and   it  is a  .matter iti   wliich   he    .should   have-the  unanimous support of the country. When  we consider, too, the fate  of  the 600,000  other natives iu the  Transvaal' and the  way in wliich we have  neglected  to secure   to   them   that   good   government  which was promised in 1877, and  several,  times since, it  becomes our imperative  duty in the settling of the present  crisis  to take such steps as will lead to an amelioration of the Kaffir's lot,   Kor the sake  of the peaceful development of-the other  states of .South  Africa���a  development  which depends so largely on the  hearty  cooperation of black ami white���we cannot allow this treatment  of the natives  by the Boers to continue.    Our  position  of paraniountcy forbids us to  remain indifferent spectators, for  tlie  evil, if unchecked, might well be the inciting cause  of a disastrous native war.  A Hopeless Struggle.  Interference by one ofthe  powers  of  Europe���that aud a wild chance that the  British soldier might have  grown  weak  iu fighting stamina���were the only hopes  on which the Boers could hang a reasonable expectation of victory.     There  are  no signs  of European  interference, and  the  British  soldier,  wherever tried, has  shoAvn a degree of courage and bulldog  persistence     that    is    worthy    of   the  best       traditions       of       the      British  army.        Tommy      Atkins      has      lost  none of  his  historic  daring,  and he  is  commanded by officers  who are burning  with  an almost reckless  desire to  court  death or woo honor.    There  is no  hope,  therefore,   for   the   Afrikander    cause.  England  has set its teeth, and all political parties are practically united in a determination to fight on   to victory.    The  Boer is a brave  fighter, but  the  British  soldier is brave ; one  plays  against  the  other, and   overwhelming  numbers  and  enormous   resources will determine  the  issue.  A Chance for Scientific Men.  ���.Paris, December 5.���M.

The  prize-;is open to all countries.  'The War's Effect on Gold Output,  Brhi.in, December  5.���A high  official  of the Reich bank in   the  course  of an  interview today said: The war in South  Africa may have a slight disturbing  effect upon the money market for a short  time, but it will have no permanent  effect upon tlie world's gold supply. This is so large and increasing  so rapidly elsewhere, in America  Australia and the Klondike for instance,  that a short stoppage in South Africa  will be comparatively unimportant.  The Reich bank does not contemplate a  raising in the rate of discount now, but  it may be necessary to do the later. No  gold is leaving Germany as yet, on the  contrary last week a small quantity came  from England. It is the rising tendency  of London exchange that causes concern.  The Tremont Bote!

Burnett, who will manage the business of the Nelson Coke and Gas Company,  has arrived in Nelson.

He promised to quit the town  in two hours' time. McDonald lias just  completed a term in the provincial jail of  three months. He was committed there  for assault and battery. He was released  from the latter place but a week ago.  The Purchasing Agent Was Let Out.  A story comes from Kaslo which goes  to show that the business men of that  town do not believe in the policy pursued  by some of the men who live and prosper  in their midst. A contractor on' the Ar-  genta-Duncan extension of the Kaslo &  Slocan railway, who resides in Kaslo, had  in his employ a purchasing agent that  believed in procuring supplies in the  cheapest market. He found that by purchasing supplies in Kuskonook he could  save his employer 10 per cent on an average. This policy being continued, pressure was brought to bear on the contractor, and the purchasing agent is now  looking for another job.  Will Erect New Premises. ������-. jj^!;  A.
