 \JSi"?.;'-kSK ,       --"-t~- .-.<��..-.*i^-...,  N  THE CAMPAIGN IN UPPER NATAL  ..*        Is General Joubert Dead?  -'/���London, December 3.���The curtain has  been running down upon  the campaign  in upper Natal and tliere is only a single  glimpse behind the scenes. This is offered  in a Central News dispatch from Durban  with the'statement that a reconnaisauce  has taken place and Boer commands have  been found  at  Coienso,  where  a  great  battle is likely to be fought early in the  Aveek.    The Tugela bridge  now  has undoubtedly been destroyed and  the river  line will be defended, as at tlie Modder.  Military men are looking for a liner display of strategy in  that quarter,  since  the shining lights of the staff college are  there, both Clery and 11 ildyurd, and this  also forecasts more delay in bringing on  an engagement, since to tliese there will  be mantiMivres for uniting against general  Joubert.     That warhorse has been killed  off again by several   news agencies, one  of wliich is so consistent as to bury liim  with a state funeral; biit he will probably  live to fight another battle.  General Buller's admirers are now asserting that he has virtually relieved  Mafeking*aud Kimberley by his plans of  campaign, and is within striking distance  of the i-escue of Ladysmith, He has not  yet beaten the Dutch allies, whose fighting powers in defensive warfare are marvellous. Ho has succeeded certainly in  nipping in the bud rebellion in Cape Colony, where the Dutch are throwing down  tlieir arms and returning to their farms,  -although general Gatacre and general  French have not yet struck a decisive  blow.  Cabling ou the same subject, tlie Lon  r*<.  M  MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 4,  1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON. BRITISH COLUMBIA.

Royal Commissioner Martini, on behalf  of Italy, and Mr. James Rennel Rodd,  representing England in Egypt having  put into diplomatic, form an Anglo-Italian  understanding in regard to their frontiers  in a part of Africa most of which is  claimed by king Menelek. So far as can  be ascertained, things have been carried  on with a total disregard of the existence  of Menelek, the assumption being that he  no longer has aspirations for territorial expansion, and has been even  reconciled to the Italian occupation of  territory once belonging to Abyssinia.  The Anglo-Italian agreement, ib is said,  has been actually signed this week. It  adds to the Italian possessions the colony  known as Erytheria, a vast tract of  territory, while England finally takes  absolute possession of Kasala. Each  party binds itself to give military assistance to the other in the event of an  attack from any quarter.  CAPTAIN SCOTT'S INSPIRATION  don correspondent of the Sun stiys:   "Tlie  military situation in South Africa, so far  as exposed, is distinctly improved during  .the week from the British standpoint.   It  is difficult to  describe  the English pride  and  enthusiasm over  general Methuen's  great march  to  the  relief of Kimberley.  There tire some  misgivings over the fate  ofthe  gallant  column wliich is fighting  ��� its way north against an enemy who is  desperately contesting every step ofthe  advance.    The public is  still in the dark*  ,as   to   the   latest    position   of   general  Methuen's force  and  the  nature  of the  last battle   at   the  Modder  river.    Tlie  publication  today of  tho casualty   list  gives the impression   tliat it was a long-  .range fight, perhaps from  opposite sides  of the river.      Tliere  are much  heavier  losses than were expected, and from general Methuen's description of it tis a great  battle, it  is  naturally feared that, as in  the case of a previous  engagement, the  supplementary  list  of casualties, which  will be fortlioomiiig'ina few days, will be  ���almost as long as the original list.  u The news today whieli gives the greatest satisfaction, is"the announcement that  .substantial reinforcements have reached  general Methuen by rail.  In regard to the Natal campaign, it is  difficult to account for the J3oer retreat  from Mooi River and .around Lsteourt,  except by a belief of the repeated-reports  that geueral Joubert was killed and the  burghers consequently demoralized. The  assertion tliat the withdrawal was caused  by a lack of food is hardly borne out by  the discoveries of food aud other  loot left by the retreating Boers.  Next -week should bring a heavy  engagement at the Tugela River,  with general Buller's relief force tind also  hard fighting for Methuen's'column near  the Modder river, this perhaps culminating in the successful relief of Kimberley.

Oppose* Employing Sailors on Land.  London, December 3.���It appears that  rear admiral Harris, commanding at  Cape Town, nuicli disapproved of sending  a naval brigade to the front, and sir  John Colomba and others have written tothe Times protesting against the habit of  employing sailors in land fighting, on  account of the greater difficulty in procuring sailors than soldiers, the greater  of their production, and the consequent  undermanning of the vessels. The army  recruiting returns for November show an  unusually low total, almost the smallest  on record. It is said in explanation that  the calling out of the reserves and militia  has created a labor demand which is uot  yet supplied.  Britain and Italy Join Hands.  *New York, December B.���The London  correspondent of the Sun says :   " While  British soldiers have been fighting in two  regions of Africa, two civilians have been  Proved of Great Service.  Ni.w York, December 3.���Interesting  tacts about the naval guns, wliich saved  the day at Ladysmith by tlieir timely  arrival, are told by a Natal correspondent  of the London Times. Concerning the  inspiration which led captain Percy  Scott, of the British cruiser Terrible, to  des,ign mountings by av hich sea-guns  could be used effectively for land service,  the correspondent says from the first it  would seem that what was wanted was  long range, guns, which could hit the  enemy at a distance outside the range of  their Mauser rifles. The captain of the  Terrible, therefore, proposed a field  mounting for the naval 12-pdunders, of  twelve hundred weight, which was a  much longer range than any artillery  gun out here. A pair of Avagon Avheels  AA'ere picked up, a piece of timber used as  a trail, and in tAventy-fonr hours a 12-  ponnder Avas ready for land .service.  Captain Scott also designed a mounting,  for a 4.7-inch inwal gun.  Experts declared that the 12-pounder  would/smash up the trail, and that the  ���1.7 inch gun would turn a somersault.  The designer insisted ou a trial.' When  it took place nothing of the kind happened, except that at extreme elevation  the 12-pounder shell Avent 0000 yards,  and the 4.7 inch (lyddite) projectile  12,000 ya rds. Captain Scott was therefore encouraged to go ahead, and four 12  pounders were fitted out and sent around  to Durban on the Powerful, and also two  4.7 inch guns.  Kollowiug this success, captain Scott  also rigged up a searchlight Avith a flasher  attachment for use in communication Avith  Kimberley and Ladysmith. One of these  accompanied Methuen's column northward in charge of lieutenant-colonel  li hodes, a brother of Cecil Rhodes. Another is believed to haA*e been sent with  Clery's force. The light has been tested  at a distance of forty miles Avith successful results.   The Man for the Occasion.  Wa.^iiington, December 3.���-General  LcoliaFd~Wo"o"d~Avill be~niaster~of~airCuba~  under the direction of the president until the time comes Avhen congress takes  action by providing a new civil government for the island. General Wood is  not to be called officially "civil governor."  He will be military governor, in supreme  command of the island, but in the ab-  Sience of any insurrection, and "none is expected by the administration, his duties  Avill chiefly be civil. General Wood is to  take the rank of major-general of volunteers, which -will enable him to outrank  the regular army officers avIio remain in  Cuba under his command. Some of the  generals iioav tliere are to be-withdrawn  and those avIio remain Avill be placed under general Wood's orders. To appease  those who are taken away, the president  Avill make several promotions to brigadier  generalships of the regular army. Those  who aie to be thus honored are generals  Lee aud Wilson. General Wood Avill return to Cuba Avithin a few days, and as  soon as the president can arrange the  future of the other generals involved he  will be placed in supreme command and  will be stationed at Havana.  Dr. Jameson was Not Wanted.  New York, December Ji.���The London  correspondent of the World says: Dr.  Jameson has not arm'ed in England. General White, acting under instructions from  the Avar minister, advised him to leaA-e  Ladysmith, deeming it ^inadvisable to  have the director of tlie raid identified  Avith the present operations. Dr. Jameson, it is understood, has gone to Bulu-  Avayo by way of Lorenzo Marque/.. His  arrival at Cape Toavu and his sailing for  England was only a feint, in order to  keep his whereabouts a secret. Jameson  was refused service in any capacity by  the British /military authorities, even in  .the ambulance corps. y; ���  Hi  Hi  m  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  ib  iii  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  -Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi.

General Walker reported that general  Methuen still remained at Modder.River on Friday for the reconstruction of  the bridge, aud that artillery and cavalry had been sent to reinforce him,  Avhile three battalions*of infantry, a corps of horse artillery and the Canadian  and Australian contingents had moved forward to DeAar and Belmont.  This Avas evidently a confidential dispatch not meant for publication, but the  war office promptly posted it in order to relieve the tension of public  suspense at the risk of giving important information to the enemy. In the  afternoon the casualty list Avas posted,' Avith a total of 41, including the  previous lot of officers. Methuen's losses'in the ten-hour fight were 70  killed, 388 wounded, and 7 missing. * The total was 20 below the combined  losses ofthe two previous battles at Beimont and Enslin. While the details  of the battle are still unknown, these official bulletins throw a little light  upon the engagement, which had remained for four days an inexplicable  mystery, General Methuen's entire, army was under fire, for casualties haA'e  been reported from every unit of the army except the Northampton  battalion.  After fighting desperately for ten hours he could only claim a slight  tactical advantage, since he had only .succeeded in'throwing a small force  across the river, and, in his oavu words,:-" had made tha Boers quit their  positions." He was slightly wounded I himself and had lost six per cent of  his entire force, in addition to another six per cent in the two previous  battles. But he had iio idea that he had been beaten, and no intention of  letting the enemy or the British people think so. He had his slight tactical..  advantage, and he held his ground like a bulldog. He remained Avhere he  AA'as three days until reinforcements could be sent and the engineers- could  repair the bridge, so that the naval guns, field batteries and supplies might  go with him, and within forty-eight hours the world-'can expect that another  battle has been fought and Kimberley relieved.    .  Geueral Methuen is not a tactician and he works his men terribly hard,  as is proved by his having marched fifty-three miles within seven days and  fought three battles,"���with 12 per cent of. his entire force killed or disabled;  but he is a fine type of English grit arid invincible courage.  It seems probable, from a clew'furnished by the Standard correspondent,  that general Methuen expected to find the enemy in force, not at Modder  River, but at Spj'tfontein beyond, and that he Avas not prepared to meet so  strong an army as confronted him when he reached the swollen stream. He  accepted the challenge of battle at once, and fought from hour to hour until  evening. _ -- - _ , ���  It seems probable that the Guards brigade was engaged in the tongue of  land formed by the Modder and Piet rivers, and the cavalry brigade below  the railway bridge, with the naval brigade in the center: but the lighting '  AAras desperate all along the line, as the equal losses for the two brigades  clearly iudicate. The heaviest individual losses AA'ere those of the battalion  of Highlanders which had joined the column thirty-six hours before the  battle. A fresh battery of field artillery had also reinforced general  Methuen, so that there Avere three in action. The Lancers and the tAvo  bodies of Provincial Hor.se took a less prominent part in the ten hours' fight,  Avhich AA'as mainly one of infantry, Avith incessant artillery fire and rifie  practice, aud a little bayonet work at the close of the exciting day. General  Methuen could not claim a decisiA'e victory, but-he had held his ground, and  did not knoAV Avhat the phrase "' drawn battle " meant.  He made the most of the tactical advantage, sent a bulletin to the war  office Avith one or two rhetorical flourishes, Avhich Ave all have been puzzling  OA-er for four days, and began to repair the bridge Avhile waiting for reinforcements. He had captured neither guns, position nor prisoners; but he  had paralyzed the activities of the enemy, for Cronje, with a force of  superior mobility, has done nothing to interrupt the line of communication,  by which battalions of cavalry and artillery were coming up, and that line  stretches not only to Capetown, but to Southampton, whence 3000 fresh  troops sailed yesterday, with an additional call behind for reserves of  'regiment, r   %  m  m  w.  ti  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  *  m  m  m  m  ��  m  m  m  m  m  m *  m  *���**���  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  *  m  m  m  m  m  *  m  m  m  m  ��  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  i��  <n  m  i��  m  m  �����*��  ��n  f��  ��p  m  <**���  i��  *-  m  *  I**  f��  m  SIX  ^S***.*^-.***^-***-**-**^***--**  _��43$3*444444444*444*4433444433'*!'*  <n  1*  m  <n  <r>  m  m  *��  m  m  f  m  1��  fi  *  m  *  m  t*\.  m  _?��  POLICE COTJKT DOCKET.

England, of the  British secretary of state for the colonies.  Tlie comiHents are not unfavorable.���  STATE OWNED RAILWAYS.  The attention of those fearsome souls  who believe government OAvnership of  railways is a foredoomed failure is invited  to" the case of Ncav .South Wales. According to a communication from the secretary of the New South Wales railway  commission, government ownership has  done all its advocates claim it can be  made to do." The government has given  good service, kept up -and improved the  equipment, and last year it made a profit  on the investment of 3.75 per cent.  When the government took over the  railAVi.ys in 1888 the rolling stock was  dilapidated ami the roadbeds, shed~> and  machine shops in,bad condition. There  Avere 428 locomotives, and some liad been  on tlie line over thirty years. The government bought 180 new locomotives ami  had 7-1 rebuilt.  The government replaced 1570 wornout  coaches Avith 1101 new ones of greater  size. It added 324 coaches and increased  the seating capacity for passengers from  28,823 to 35,41)0. All these coaches are  supplied Avith air brakes, and the passenger coaches have gas lights. The government has erected a new foundry, i.umer-  ous engine sheds anil great shops Avhich  are to be equipped with modern machinery, electric cranes, and all needful appliances. The government's management  has been economical. It has reduced expenditure, just as a private corporation  would have done. It adopted a standard  axle box Avhich saved oil, tallow, and  " waste." It erected a plant for washing*  " waste," and .saved on its .lubricating  hills by substituting mineral oils for vege  table. That is a, pretty conclusive ansAver  tothe argument that goA-erumeuts can  not, or Avill not, exercise such foresight in  conducting business as the individuat'or  private corporation Avould.  Opponents, of government -ownership  ahvays like to believe the service would  be poor. A sample of the service is  afforded by the tables of train delays.  For the year ending June 30th, 1890, the  government operated 270(5 miles of road,  and its total train runs amounted to  8,800,048 miles. Of its through trains, 91  per cent Avere on time, .and only 7.17  per cent AA'ere more than fiA'e minutes  late. Ninety-eight per cent of its local  trains Avere on time, and 100 per cent of  its suburban trains Avere on time. No  poor service about that.  . The conclusion one is forced to draw is  that government ownership in ;'. NeAV  South Wales looks remarkably like a  successful venture after ten years of  trial. But it never Avould have been a  success in Australia if it hadn't been  tried, and it never Avill be a . success in  this country until it is tried.  SCANT NEWS FROM THE SEAT  Of War in South Africa.    ���  Cape Town, December 2.���It is iioav  certain that the bad condition of the  British caA'alry horses alone prevented  the complete annihilation of the entire  Boer force at Belmont. Tliere is marked  difference in the condition of the English  and Australian horses on their arrival.  The English horses suffer greatly during  the A'oyage, and Avhen they reach here  are suffering from SAVollen and stiff joints.  On the other hand the Australian horses  arrive in good serviceable condition, this  is especially true of the mounts of the  NeAV Zealanders.  Orange River. December 2.���Two  ambulance trains frOiii Gras Pan have  gone to Cape Town Avith the Avounded,  most of whom are doing Avell. Many  maiwellous escapes are reported. One  man AA'as hit four, times, one bullet struck  him in the right thumb,, another in the  little finger, a thiid took off the tip of  his ear and the fourth grazed"his chin. A  pathetic story of the war ' is ciounected  Avith lieutenant-Wood, who* Was killed at  Modder.river. - In. August ,last,'-he.' was.  showing his young sister the mechanism  of a new gun when he accidentally  touched the trigger and shot her dead.

The tent postollice was  on Vernon street, on the lot on which  Tin-. Tkihunk office now stands, and the  KIMBERLEY IS OUT OF DANGER  Methuen Can Believe It.  London, December 2.���The announcements that the reinforcements, amounting to half of the second army corps, are  to be sent to South Africa immediately  meets Avith universal appioval. There is  little doubt that a third division Avill follow as soon as possible, and it is very  likely that the fourth Avill go soon after,  thus raising the British force in the field  to about 120,000.  The total casualty list on the British  side is now amounting to serious figures.  It is now stated at 4180, of Avhom 108  were killed, 180(5 Avounded and 1900  missing.  The London coi respondent of th.  Herald has this to say: Another day of  silence as to the present moA'ement of  the British troops has further increased  the feeling of anxiety Avhich prevails  among all classes. The lost list of killed,  Avounded and missing among the noncommissioned officers and pi iA'ates in the  engagement at Modder river is uoav  forthcoming, Avith a total of 73 killed,  373 AA'ounded and 71 missing. This  brought home to the hearts of the English people Avith renewed force the fact  that this Avar Avill entail an appalling loss  of life before it is finished.  On the other hand, dispatches to the  Avar offie sIioav that lord Methuen's last  battle Avas a decided victory, clearing the  Boers from the m-er and railway line and  allowing lord Methuen to set his engineers  at Avork repairing the bridge, Avhich is essential to the execution of his plans, as  without it piovisions cannot be conveyed  to Kimberley nor can the refugees be  moved back to Cape Toavii. There is little doubt that lord Methuen can now  freely pass as many of his troops as he  requires across the river. Were Kiniber-  ly in danger of being compelled to yield  tothe Boers, Methuen could adArance Avith  the bulk of his force and clear the way to  the beleagured gani.on, Avith Avhom he is  supposed to be in heliographic commeni-  catiou. It is therefore certain that Kimberley is safe.  The fact of Methuen being reinforced  from De Aar, by three batallions of infantry and a caA'alry corps, makes it  possible for the geneial, when he reaches  Kimberley, to be able to aAvait the completion of general Gatacre's concentration on the frontier, and the arrival of  sir Charles Warren's division, his line of  communication being guarded by troops  along from the Modder to the Orange  Rivers. , When he crosses the Modder  River, it is almost certain that he Avill  find the Boers blocking his advance to  Spyfputein. it Avould be difficult to imagine a position Better suited for defensive tactics than that in which the Boert>  are. The pa. tial line which Methuen  must follow passes through a belt of very  biokeu country. Stony kopjes stretch on  each side from four to six miles, an extent, of front which Avill lender difficult  any turning movements. If the Boers  Avho hold it are eA'entually driven out  they a. ill Iiua�� Kimbeiley aud its garrison directly in their rear and may lose  their gun**.  Invention for Steering Torpedoes.  London, December :..���An invention  has been tested at Weymouth for steering any craft, Avhethcr submerged or  othei wi^e, by means of an ether Avave on  the wiieles. telegraph principle. The  model Avas subjected to a variety of  tests and followed the cm rent aa-uao  as surely as if guided by a rudder.  In addition to steering it straight  lines, vat ions figures were described. If  furthci-tests-nre--uc.es-ful��� it-is likely -  the system A\ill be adopted by the admi-  i.ilty. Its effect on marine warfare is Inestimable.

Better wait and  let the division of the district come in the  regular Ayay. There are Avorse things in  this Avorld than being Avithout representation in legislative bodie.s.

Is it not also true of men  in   all pursuits':*     Where   one man,  or  Avonian, either, for that matter, is found  proficient at his vocation, another will be  found inefficient; one will be found who  takes an interest and pride in his trade;  auother, whose only anxiety is for the  quitting hour and the pay-day.    This inefficiency and indifference is not confined  to the man who works for Avages. - How  many     employers     can    be     depended  .on    to    do     good     work     when     entrusted , Avith     a     contract? -     Will  not    50   per   cent   of   the   contractors  in Nelson  skimp  the  work they take in  hand to do?J Yet if anyone was to s'ay  that they had no Tight to organize associations for mutual protection, he would*  be looked  upon  as  a dangerous man in  the community.   Why is it that the man  avJio pi ides himself   in  doing his work  well is unable to  obtain a contract in  competition with, the  man  who skimps  his work?   Simply because the skimper  purchases everything he uses, labor included, of the poorest and cheapest quality.    The skimper does not employ carpenters at $3,50  a day, stone-cutters at  $5, or laborers at $2.50.    He does not purchase any material *at home that he can  buy aAvay from  home.    He is a cheap  man in every Avay,  and the contractor  who   is   Avilling    to    pay   fair   wages,  purchase  good   material, and   live  and  let live   is   driven    out   of   the   toAvn.  What-is true of-the contractors is true of  the workers.    Good  workers, in order to  get work in toAvii3 like Nelson, must accept tlie pay of the inferior workmen or  go without.     In   organizing unions, the  inferior Avorkmen are taken in for self  protection.    Once the unions are established   and   recognized, then employers  are all placed on the same footing as far  as Avages enter into the cost of contracts.

Strategists may condemn the tactics  whieli exposed British soldiers at points  of contact with tlie Boers on tlie far-extended line of defence in northern Natal.  The occupation of Ladysmith, in fact the  whole British campaign in Natal, lias violated the first principles of military sci-  Ji* ence. There is something higher than  I ��� military science, and the determination  'Vf a of an empire taken at a disadvantage to  exert its strength to guard a few thousand Biitish homes in Natal illumines one  of the brighest pages in the annals of  British statesmanship. IL might have  been good,��� cold-bloodod military tactics  for the British to occupy no more territory than they could easily defend, and  thus abandon a few thousand scattered  but loyal British people to the tendei  mercies of the invading foe. Britain  chose the better part. Her policy threw  sir George White and his little force into  Ladysmith, and their strength has so far  sheltered thousands of people who trusted  Britain and risked tlieir little all in her  defence.
