Kasi.o, December (J.���One of the largest  mining deals ever made in Kaslo was con-  . stimulated on Monday last, Avhen Ernest  Mansfield, the energetic and pushing representative of English and French capital, wlio has made so many successes  already in Kootenay, purchased from  Mrs. Jennie E. Harris the Harris, Bostock  and Maple Leaf groups of mining claims  situated on Harris mountain and Goat  river.  Kor several weeks negotiations have  beeii pending for these properties. An  agent of the Standi.rd Oil Company and  it. representative of one of the hig British  companies. * operating at Rossland were  endeavoring to secure the property on  bond, but Mrs. Harris preferred Mr.  Mansfield's terms and was better pleased  with his successful method of energetically pushing* development work on all  his mining undertakings.  Tlie. consideration is $ 125,000, which  the purchaser was willing to pay after a  thorough examination and sampling of  all the different ledges running through  the several locations.  On Harris mountain, which lies to  the  east of White Grouse  mountain, are  the  Harris and Bostock groups.    The former  consists of tlie Harris, Gold Bank, Silver  Queen and Yukon, all   full  claims.     The  Bostock  group  comprises   the  Bostock,  .Jennie I.., Northern Star, Marguerite and  Josie Fraction, the fraction  being  about  one half a claim.    Tlie Maple Leaf group,  composed of the Maple Leaf, Rosern  and  Phojiiiciau, are on the Goat River* trail.  The claims on Harris  mountain  can   be  reached by trail  from  Sanca, on  Kootenay lake, or by trail up Goat river. . This  trail  is  intended  for  a  wagon   road at  some   future  time, as  the  right of way  has been cleared for that purpose.    Still  another route is by trail  up   Whitefish  creek, from the St. Mary's  river in East  Kootenay.  The formation of the country  in   which  these claims  are located consists of dykes of white  lime,   talc, schist  and diorite,  running  north  and  south,  while the trend of the veins are from the  northwest to-the -southeast, cutting  the  formation obliquely, proving them   to be  Insures.    The copper ores  differ  materially from those of White  Grouse  mountain, ns its ores are grey copper or  tetre-  hedrite, while the copper of the property  described is the  yellow  pyrites  or  sulphide, termed chaleopyi'ito.  Tin** ores carry gold, silver and copper  in all leads- except one on the Gold Bank,  where a four-foot vein of galena-zinc oie  has been uncovered. From large samples  - taken the following assay returns have  been had: Galena -zinc ore 14 per cent  lead, IS ounces .silver. From other claims  from I J-..5 per cent to 31.5 per cent copper*  one ounce in gold and varying amounts  in silver.  The situation of tliese niines for rapid  and economical working is most ideal.  Grossing the high mountain ridges a-s  they do, they can be developed and  worked by tunneling on the veins, in  some places a depth of 1700 can be "gained  by this method.  By being located in comparatively close  proximity to the Grow'.*. Nest Pass iail-  way, with the possibility of spurs from  one or the other oi both these lines being  built to tha mines, adds much to their  future value. Timber aud water for all  purposes are there in limitless quantity.  It is Mr. Mansfield's intention to push development work on these, his latest  acquisitions, with the .same restless  energy that has characterized  his past  -operations in this district.

Toronto, December 0.���Charles Lewis  Shaw, the Cauadian newspaper man, was  among ��� those who witnessed general  Methuen's victory at Behnout. In his  description of the fight he says _ " How  BRITAIN TAKES THE AGGRESSIVE  March on Ladysmith Begun.  London, December 8.���Geneial Buller's  arrival at Frere is held to indicate that  all the preparations for an advance to  the relief of Ladysmith are complete, and  that stirring news will soon be received.  The fact that general Methuen i_ announced as lesuming his command at  almost the same moment is interpreted  in some quai Lers to mean that battles  w ill be fought simultaneously in Natal and  Spyfontein. It appears, doubtful, however,  whether general Methuen's force is yet  ready for what will be a heavy encounter.  The construction of the temporary bridge  across the Modder River has entailed  enorinou- labor, and even now the structure is liable to be washed away should a  heavy storm come. General Methuen  has been expected to move his camp a  mile north, in consequence of the unsanitary state of the stream, due to the  presence of the bodies of dead Boers. As  the railway bridge was completely destroyed, he has been compelled to giA'e a  considerable force to protect his communication.

A special correspondent sends the interesting information, regarding Boor  tactics, that commandant general Joubert  has given general orders for the Boers, to  reserve fire until the British are within  the close range of 100 yards. At the  Modder River battle, however, the Free  State burghers became nervous and  opened lire prematurely, thus revealing  their position and frustrating the Boer  plan-.

VANCorvnR, December 7.���[Special to  The Tribune],���At a meeting of the  Board of Fire Underwriters held yesterday it was decided to charge a tax of 15  per cent on the net premiums of all business written in Nelson, the same to Lie  stamped on the policies. This is a retali-  tory measure on account of the city  council imposing a tax of $100 on all  insurance companies doing business in  the city. It will have the effect of  driving most of the insurance business to  agencies on the Coast.  The Canadians are at DeAar.  MoNTitUAL, December 7.���The Toronto  Globe this morning publishes the following from a special correspondent with  the Canadian contingent at DeAar*.  "DeAar, December 0.���Wo are now  camped at DeAar, and go to the front  tomorrow.   AU well."  SCORING THE WAR DEPARTMENT  For its Campaign Management.  London, December 8.���The Morning  Post publishes an article warniug the  British public that the disillusionment  already experienced respecting the Boer  forces in Natal is likely to be repeated  on the western border. It says that men  are wanted everywhere, and asks* why  the splendid body of 20,000 of the Royal  Marines, now employed in sweeping floors  and washing paint iu England, is not sent  out'to handle the naval guns, instead of  the hurriedly requisitioned men unfamiliar with " these weapons who have  gone.  The government has decided to dispatch to South Afiica at the earliest  possible moment a cavalry brigade of  about 1000 men.  Baron Toch. former governor of Cape  Colony and Biitish high commissioner for  South Afiica lesiding in London, said  last evening that the remarks of the  Transvaal president years ago showed  that he contemplated just the state of  affairs which has now arisen. Mr. Kruger  even expressed a desire to have a seaport  and said the Transvaal hoped to have a  navy some day.  Aguinaldo Heading for Cavite.  Manii,\, December 7.���The expectation  of catching Aguinaldo iu the north has  been practically abandoned, and the probability now is that_he yw ill turn south-  TvaTdrif lie~is not already there, with his  destination Cavite province, hi-* home,  where the insurrection began and where  it still has its greatest strength. The  Filipino soldiers in that province I  have*' recently been showing increased j  enthusiasm and boldness, and captured ���  insurgents say that Aguinaldo is coming  to join them with a large army, The  same belief prevails among the natives at  Manila and elsewhere, that Aguinaldo intends to make his headquarters in Cavite  province. There are 3000 insurgents  before Imus- and Bacoor, keeping the  Americans sleeping on tlieir arms, and  nightly awaiting attack. The Filipinos have several cannon. The first  mayor of Imus uuder the American  regime, who ultimately deserted, is their  leader in the assaults and is ambitious to  take the town. Three soldiers of the  Fourth infantry have deserted and are  now with the enemy. Most of the inhabitants of Imus are so strong in their  sympathy with the insurgents that it is  necessary to use a part of the regiment  to patrol the streets and to prevent  shooting from the houses when an attack  begins. The Ameiican force in the north  have sepaiated into many small commands and are pursuing bands of Filipinos.   Anxious About a Beal Estate Deal.  Wvf-pin.v&TON.   December    (5.���In    the  senate today Mr. Lodge, of Massachus&ets,  ottered and secured the adoption of a  motion requesting the president, if not  incompatible \. ith the public interest, to  inform the senate as to the proposed sale  of the Gallapagos Island by Ecuador to  Great Britain, and to communicate any  such information concerning the proposed  sale as might be in the possession of the  government.  THE LAST STAGE; JO KIMBERLEY  Methuen's Beinforcements Arriving.  Monona River .Station, December 3.--  General Cronje, who is camping below  Spytfontein, about six miles north of  here, has been leinforced by 3000 Boers  from Natal. The new bridge over the  Modder river, which is being constructed  by the engineers, is lapidly nearing completion. General Methuen is waiting on  } this to get "the aitillery across, when he  i will be in condition to advance on "the last  stage to Kimberley. Some Natal guns  with lyddite shells are expected here-*  shortly. Methuen has been reinforced by  the Twelfth Lancers, and more field guns  have arrived, the latter with tents and  stores. It is understood other leinforee-  ments will be here in another week.  Twehe of the British wounded died yesterday. A few cases of fever have .appeared, probably because of the corpses  in the river. Consequently the camp has  been shifted back. The health of the  troops is excellent.  Have Not Heard From Macrum.  Washington, December 7.���Since the  news received about two weeks ago of  the objection by the Boer government to  the attempt of United States consul  Macrum at Pretoria to disburse certain  sums of money pi ovided by the British  government to alToid the British prisoners there with .small luvuriesdui ing their  confinement, the state department has  _lieard_nothing on this subject. On being  informed of tlie objection the department  instructed Mr. Macrum to protest against  it; but it is not shown how he has acted  since then. In fact the department has  beeu unable to obtain an answ'er fiom  any of its communications, of reccnfcdate,  and it does not know even if he has re-  cehed notice of the granting of his Leave  of absence.  American Sympathy for the Boers.  Washington, December 0.���In the  .senate today Mr. Mason of IliinoLs, offered the following resolution which he  asked be allowed to lie upon the table  until he should call it up: "Whereas,  from the hour of achieving their own independence, the people of the United  States have regarded with sympathy the  struggles of other people to free themselves from European domination ; therefore, be it resolved by the senate of the  United States, that we watch with deep  abiding interest the heioic battle of the  South African Republic against cruelty  and oppression, and our best hopes go  out for the full success of their determined contest for liberty."

As an Ally of Great Britain.  London, December 7.���Sir Charles Lo  Feng Lull, the Chinese minister who presided this evening at the monthly dinner  of the Article Club, whirj rear-admiral  lord Chailes Beresford, several members  of parliament, and the Servian, Chilian  and Uruguayan ministers were present,  responded to the toast, the development  of British trade in China. "For the first  time in 0000 years," said the Chinese  diplomatist, "commerce is represented  in the Chinese cabinet. 1 congratulate the nation enjoying the  largest share of Chinese trade upon the  appointment of Li Hung Chang to this  department, which I lielieve will lead to  great and good results. Newspapers,  steamships, and other modern innovations have grown up in China like the  opium habit, until now the Chinese could  not exist without them. I am confident  that the foreign trade of China will soon  reach ��300,000,000 annually "  Lord Charles Beresford, who pointed  out the unlimited opportunities offered  by the Chinese markets, said that Great  Britain's policy ought to be to maintain  the open door, uot only to gain advantage but to secure equal opportunities  for all. Chiua's present weak state he  characterized as a menace to the peace of  the world. He urged the necessity of reform in China, aud deprecated an alliance  with Germany or with any" other 'country, except perhaps Japan.  Canadian News in Srief.

A Tough Story From a Farm.  Bowmanvim.i;, Ontario, December 0.���  The most diabolical act perpetrated in  this part of Canada, which has just been  made known, was enacted last night nt  the farm residence of J. Frank Osborne  near the town line. While Osborne and  his wife were at church the house was  entered by four masked men who forced  the servant and children upstairs, after  which they destroyed everything they  could lay hands on. They then mixed  paris green in the Hour ami in everything  of an edible nature. An entrance was  also made to the kitchen where some  straw was set on fire, the object evidently  being to burn the house and its occupants,    Two Short Locals.  The earl of Ava, heir to the house of  Duffeiin, has gone to South Africa as a  newspaper correspondent. Ho is well  known to a number of the people of Nelson and Rossland, having paid Kootenay  quite a lengthy visit during the earlier  stages of the Le Roi deal, of which company his distinguished father is chairman.  Yesterday's British Columbia Gazette  contained a notice that as a result of the  lecent examinations an assaying certificate has been granted to W. W. Mussen  of the Kxchequer Mining Company.  THERlWAS^XCmNO TIME  Among the Popping Piles.  Harry McLeod, who was  working as  engineer on the pile-driver at Kaslo when  the piles of the two floating wharves suddenly sank out of sight on Tuesday, arrived  in  Nelson  last  evening.     He described the  sinking of the piles as the  most remarkable sight he ever witnessed.  Although the structure which he was engaged in building  is  locally   known as a  wharf, Mr.   McLeod   says  that it was in  the nature of a  protection against the  weather for boats lying against the floating warehouses of   the  Canadian Pacific  and Kaslo <��_  Slocan  railway companies.  It consisted of two rows of piles on either  side of both  warehouses, about 250 feet  in   length.    These  piles  were gradually  strengthened,   terminating   at   the  eriil  with a dolphin of about a dozen piles In  a bunch.  The entire work was completed  on Tuesday morning with the exception  of driving the last pile in one of the'dol-  phins at  the entrance  to the Canadian  Pacific slip.    At  the point where these  piles were driven there  were 39 feet of  wrater, and the  piles  used  were from 90  to 95 feet in  length,    in driving the last  pile the  pile-drivers'  barge  had its nose  against the uncompleted dolphin, and its  stem against the opposite dolphin of the  Kaslo & Slocan slip.  The cable operating the hammer of the  driver became  weakened ac the last pile  was being driven, and the engineer rested  the hammer upon  the pile in order that  the cable  could  be  spliced.    While  the  hammer was thus resting McLeod noticed  that the pile was gradually sinking of its  own weight.    The remaining piles in the  dolphin began sinking in sympathy.  The  piles were fifteen feet out  of water, but  they kept on* sinking until they went out  of sight.    The dolphin at the rear  ofthe  barge began sinking about the same time,  and  the astonished   men  on  the  barge  soon  saw  that  the whole field of piles  weie also going out of sight.     With  an  axe they cut  the  cables  which  moored  the barge to the dolphins, and   in  a  few  moments the piles came shooting up out  of the water almost to their  full, length,  falling on  tlieir  sid^s  in   all   directions.  How the men on the barge escaped without injury is a  mystery, as  the  90-foot  piles of the dolphins fell iu all directions.  Fifteen minutes from the time  when the  first pile commenced  sinking  every  pile  which was driven in the water  had sunk  out of sight and shot into the air again.  It was not a land elide.    There was uo  shoving towards the lake.   The piles simply sunk by some immense weight, and  when they were freed shot tip into the  air.   The theory of engiueer McLeod is  that  the slip  was  being  built  upon   a  shelf of rock upon which  several  feet of  mud   had accumulated.    The  driving of  the piies'evidently cracked   this, and the  driving  of  the  dolphin piles completed  the work  which   the  otlicrs  began, and  the  whole  structure  sunk out of .sight  within   fifteen   minutes,  carrying   what  was formerly the approach to  the  float-    ���  ing warehouse* avith it.  The   theoiy   that    the   accident   was  caused by tho breaking away of a shelf is*  boi ne out by the fact that at the  end of  the line of piles whore there was formerly "  a depth of oO feet of water, bottom  can--  1 not   now   be  brought  with   a   100-foot  j chain.

The Manitoba election *v?as the first  skirmish ofthe great battle that Was to  have been fought next yeai' for control  of the Dominion government. The defeat of premier Greenway means that tlie  battle will not be fought until 1001, for  were the Liberal party to go to the  country now. they would as surely.be de-  Tili. result of the Manitoba election  will liave a tendency to lessen the iin-  poi't.mce of the minister of tho interior,  who hails from Brandon. Hon. Mr  Sifton, whom the Laurier government  selected as the one man fit to sit in the  cabinet from the Great West, has lo��t  his own province in the first skirmish.  When ji minister is tinned down as  Sifton has been hi Manitoba, he should  step down and out, and tmn hi*- commando over to some one else. What is  the matter witin_aurieir rei)lac.iug"SifCoif  with Hewitt Bostock. Bostock may not  rate high in ability: but on all ijuo&tious,  except the tarilT, he has shown that he is  pretty close to tlu* common people���nnd  it is tlie common people that win  elections.  "Bon" Watson, Green way's. u-ii.isUii-  of public'works, was thought to be"invincible; but he went down early in the  battle. Before taking ollice under Greenway he was the member from Martjuette,  and was the only Liberal in the liouse of  commons from the West. Attorney-general Cameron, the other defeated minister, succeeded Sifton' in th'nt 'office,-  but was not considered in the heavyweight class. Speaker Young was also  one of tho defeated ones.

No fields or orchards break the  transition from man to nature ;Dstep out  of the street, and you aro at onee.on rock-  ribbed kopje or raw veldt. .As you stand  on one of the bare lines of hill that  S(|iiee/.e it into a narrow valley, Burghcrs-  dorp i.s a chequer-board of. white -lioit.se,  green tree, and grey iron roof; beyond  its edges "everything is tlie changeless  yellow-brown of .South African landscape.  Go down into the streets, and J3ur-  ghersdorp is an idyll of A ready. The  broad, dusty; uninetalled roads are steeped in sunshine.* The houses are all one-  storied, some brick, some mud, some the  eternal corrugated iron, .most faced witli  whitewash, -'*iuany.j fronted with shady  verandahs. As blinds against the sun,  they have lattices of trees down every  street���white-blossoming laburnum, poplars, sycamores.  Despite verandahs and trees, the sunshine soaks down into every corner���  genially, languorously warm. All l.ur-  ghersdorp basks. You see half a dozen  yoke of bullocks with a wagon standing  placidly in the street, too lazy even to  switch their tails against the flies : pass  by an hour later and they are still there,  and the black man lounging by the  leaders,, has hardly shifted one leg : p'iss  by at evening, and they have moved on  three hundred yards, and are. resting  again. In the day time, hens- peek and  cackle iu every street; at nightfall, the-  bordering veldt hums with crickets and  bullfrogs. At morn come a flight- of  locusts���first yellow-white scouts whirling down every street, then a pelting  snowstorm of tliem high tip over the  houses, spangling the blue heaven, l.tit  JJurghersdorp'cared nothing, "There is  nothing for them," said a farmer, with  cosy satisfaction ; "the frost killed everything last week,"  British and Dutch salute and exchange  the news with lazy mutual tolerance.  The British are store-keepers, and men of  business; the Boers ride in from their  farms. They are big, bearded men, Ioo->e  of limb, shabbily dressed in broad-  brimmed hat-*, corduroy trousers, and  brown slices ; they sit their ponies at a  rocking-chair canter erect and easy ; unkempt, rough, half-savage, their tanned  f.iee.-> and blue eyes express lazy good-nature,    sluggish   stubbornness,    dormant  fierceness. They ask the news in soft,  lisping Dutch that might be a woman's;  but the lazy imperionsness of their bearing stamps them as free men. A people  hard to rouse, yon say���and as hard, when  roused, to .subdue..  A loitering A ready���and then you hear  with astonishment that Bui'ghersdorp i.s  famous  throughout  South  Africa  as   a  stronghold of bitter Dutch partisanship.  Rebel   Burghersdorp. they call it in the  British centres, and Capetown turns anxious ears towards it for the first muttering  of  insurrection.    What  history   its  stagnant  annals  record   is  purely anti-  British.    Its  two  principal  monuments,  after the Jubilee fountain, are the tombstone   of   the   founder   of   the   Popper  Church���the Ironsides of South Africa���  and  a    statue   with   inscribed   pedestal  complete, put up to commemorate the introduction of the Dutch  tongue into the  Cape  parliament.     Malicious  comments  add that Afrikander patriotism swindled  the stonemason out of ��-i0, and it is certain   that one  of  the  gentlemen whose  name .appears thereon most prominently  now languishes in gaol for fraud.    Leaving   that poiiit  for thought,  the rest of  Burghersdorp's  history consist;?  in   the  fact  that    the   Afrikander    Bond   was  founded here, in 18SI.    Aud, at this .-.moment, Burghersdorp is out-bonding  the  bond : the reverend gentleman who edits  its  Dutch paper .and dictates its Dutch  policy... sluices out weekly vials of wrath  upon Jlofineyr and Schreiner for machinating to keep patriot Afrikanders off the  oppressing Briton's throat.  I went to see this reverend pastor, who  is professor of a school of Popper theology. He was short, but thick-set, with a  short, but shaggy grey beard ; in deference to his calling, lie wore a collar over  his gray flannel shirt, but no tie. Nevertheless, he turned out a very charming,  courteous old gentleman, well informed,  and his political bias wtis mellowed with  an irresistible sense of humor. He took  his own side strongly, and allowed that  it was most proper for a Briton to be  equally strong on his own. And this is  more or less what he said:  "'Information ? No, I shall not give  you any; you -are the enemy, you see.  Ha, ha! They call me rebel. But, I ask  you. my friend, is it natural that 1���1,  Hollander born, Dutch Afrikander since  '00���should be as loyal to the British government as a Britisher should be? No, 1  say ; one can only be loyal to one's own  country. I ama law-abiding subject of  the queen, and that i-> all that they can  ask of me.  "JLow will the war go? That it is impossible, quite impossible, to say. The  Boer might run away at the lirst shot,  and he might fight to the death. All  troop are liable to panic; even regular  troop : much more than irregular. But 1  have been on commando many times  with Boer, and I cannot think him other  than brave man. Fighting is not his  business ; he wishes always to be back on  his farm with his people; but he is  Ulan.

Mr.  Gladstone, whom I look on as greatest  British statesman, did wrong in 1881. If  he had kept promises, and given back  country before the war, we would have  been grateful. And English did not feel  that they were generous, only giving independence' after war, though they had a  large army in Natal; they have always  wished recommence.  "The trouble is  because the Boer haA'e  never had confidence in tlie English government, just as you have never had confidence in us.    The Boer have no feeling  about    Cape  Colony.      But  they   have  about Natal: they were* driven out of it,  and they think it still their own country.  Then you  took the  diamond fields   from  the Free State.    Von gave the Free Scale  independence, only because you did not  ���want trouble of Basuto war; then we .beat  the Basutos���L  myself was there, and it  was very hard and it lasted three years  ���aiid -then you  would not let us take  Basutoland.    Then  came  annexation   of  the Transfaal ; up to that I was strong  advocate  of federation, -but- after that I.,  was one of founders of the Bond.     After j  that the Afrikander trusted Rhodes���not  I,   though   I    always   write   I   distrust  Rhodes���and so came the Jameson raid.  Now, how could we liave confidence after i  all this in British government? j  "1 do not think Transfall government j  have been-wise:'] have many times told ;  them so. They made great mistake -when I  they letpeople come into the niines. I !  tolci them, This gold will be your-ruin ; to I  remain independent, you must remain I  poor. But when that was clone, what ���  could they do:* If they, give the fran- !  chise, then the -.Republic is governed by j  three or four men from Johannesburg; j  and they will govern it for their own I  own pocket. The Transfaal Boer would i  rather be British colony than Johannes- j  burg Republic. j  "Well, well; it is the law of South Af- |  ricathat the Boer drive the native.north i  and the British drive the Boer north, j  But now the'Boer can go north no more ; |  two things stop him ; the tsetse Ily and  the fever. So if he must perish, it is his  duty���yes. I, minister, say it is his duty  ���to perish fighting,  "But here in the Colonv we have no  FULL LINE OF  race hatred. Not between man and man;  but when' many men get together there  is race hatred. If we fight here on this  border it is civil war���the same Dutch  and English are across the Orange as here  in Albert. My son is on commando in  Free State ; the other day he ride thirteen hours and have no food for two  daj\s; I say to him: 'You are Free State  burgher;'you have the benefit of the  country; .yourwife is Boer girl; it is yonr  duty to fight for it.' I am law-abiding  British subject, but I hope my son will  not be hurt. You, sir, T wish you good  luck-good luck for yourself and your  corresponding. Not for your side: thatl  cannot wish yon."        G. W. Sti.kvhns.  To Erect Elevators.
