 frttzs^  '���S  M  t\  f  ���. .  River  80th,  ridge  To-  %  BOER TRICKERY PREMEDITATED  Usages of War Totally Disregarded.  London, December 0.���The censorship  continues to be of the strictest character,  virtually no news is allowed to  pass  except diaries of events  with  the  beleaguered garrisons and  positions.     According to the latest accounts of the battle of  JViodder-River, the Boer fire was the hottest on record and will revolutionize existing theories.    It  was  effective  up  to  1000 yards, but the casualties among the  prone troops was trifling.    It was  found  impos-.ible to bring the British  ammunition   reserves  to  the  firing line.    Many  Hours     wearing       red      cross     badges  were   actually    employed     in     serving  out ammunition.    In connection witli the  many  accusations  against the  Hours, in  difference  to the  laws of  war, a  letter  published in Cape Town asserts that  before the Transvaal  ultimatum  was  sent  the Boer leaders discussed   the  policy of  using the  white  flag, when  driven to  a  corner,  in  order to deceive the  British  commanders, and this policy was generally approved.  It is reported that the mobilization of  the seventh division will be ordered at  Alder-shot, as a preparation for an emergency. The Morning Post complains that  there are plenty of cavalry men available at home, but that parsimony prevents them being sent to South Africa  Avhere they are urgently needed.  London, December (J.���A special dispatch from Estcourt censures rear-  admiral Robert Harris, commander-in-  chief of the Cape of Good Hope and West  African squadron, for his delay in sending captain Scott and captain Lamb ton  with guns to Ladysmith. It is notorious,  says the correspondent, that only at the  last moment, on October 30th, while a  decisive action was pending, did captain  Lambton arrive at Ladysmith. A week,  a day, a few hours might, and I doubt  not wouid have saved the situation aud  delayed tlie investment, if it had not  ended the Boer attempt.  L0NI.0N, December (5.���The Daily Mail  announces that colonel W. A.   Yule, who  succeeded geueral sir William Symons in  command of the British troops  in Natal,  after that officer was wounded in  battle  at Talana Hill,  and  who  was  promoted  from the rank of substantive  lieutenant-  colonel   in  the  army  to that  of  major-  general  on   tlie  staff,  to   command  the  right brigade of the South  African field  force, with the substantive rank of colonel  in   the army, is  ou his way to England, being iu broken health.  ' London, December (5.���A Modder  special, dated Thursday, Novembei  .says:    The Boers occupy a strong  about mx miles* north of this point,  day tho Lancers came, into contact with  them.  The news from Mafeking is satisfactory. It is clear that colonel Baden-  Powell has no idea of surrender, but still  it is beginning to be felt here that liis  position is a most anxious one. Unless  the Boers voluntarily raise the siege it is  not seen how the garrison can be relieved before Christmas-, at the earliest.  .Military officials hero are hinting that  Mafeking may possibly fall, and it is admitted that it was a mistaken policy  that ever dictated the order that it be  held. Certainly colonel Baden-Powell,  by his plucky defence, has gained the  highest encomiums at home of all leaders  since the beginning of the war.  Although nothing new has been received from general Methuen, it is not  now considered that any determined resistance will be made to his advance on  Kimberley. Jt is thought that the Boers  are unlikely to run the risk of making a  "stand~agatust"his~considerable~force"wit_r  an active and aggressive garrison only a  few miles in the rear. If they do, Spyt-  fontein is the most likely position, but it  is most likely that they will operate on  geueral Methuen's right flank or his liue  of communication. This is the more  likely in view of the importance to the  British of these communications, as evidenced by the satisfaction expressed by  oflicials here at the news of November  20th that railway communication is complete as far north as Modder River.  Tliis means not only that the wounded  and sick can be sent straight through to  Orange river and even to Cape Town, bnt  also that general Methuen may enjoy the  immense advantage of securing fresh  supplies and reinforcements. Sir Alfred  Milnt-r's suggestion to the' refugee committee at Cape Town to arrange for the  reception of 8000 or 10,000 refugees from  Kimberley explains the urgency of general Methuen's advance. So many refugees must imperil the safety of Kimberley, through fear of starvation and  disease.  There is no news of importance from  Natal. General Uildyard seems not to  have advanced, as was supposed, northward from Frere to Coienso, the Boers  being strongly intrenched, it appears, at  the latter point. Frere railway bridge  has been badly damaged by the Boers,  and several days will be required for the  repairs necessitated. Meanwhile general  Jlildyard and Barton's forces are consolidated. Should au adverse take place  fighting will be imminent.  The Boers are expected, according to a.  Pietermaritzburg dispatch, to make a  stand south of the Tugela river, and it is  hoped here that it may prove true; but  in that case they would play into the*  hands of the British, as defeat  with  the  - 7*1.  f*-*'-*-.  -.������J-IT  ���_>_  If  ^>Z��;Y,i  WEDNESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER (i,  1899.

All the experts think  the fighting will be nortli of the river,  and not much longer delayed.  General Gatacres' brief "situation unchanged" is disappointingly vague to the  experts here, but doubtless it means more  to the authorities, who are exactly  acquainted with the extent of disloyalty  among the Cape Dutch. Civil rather  than military difficulties probably are  hampering general Gatacre, but the  Orange Free-Staters seem to be retiring  gradually under pressure of his increasing  strength, and it seems unlikely that they  will be nble to hold their Steynburg and  Stormberg positions or to make a stand  south of the Orange river.  BICYCLE RECORDS ARE BROKEN  In the Six Day Race.  Nkw York, December  5.���The  weary  six day plodders at the  Madison Square  Garden are riding far ahead of the record.  There    has   been   some   change  in   the  relative positions of the riders and several  have left the track in  the past  twenty-  four hours.    This afternoon there was an  accident in which Jay Eaton, then a lap  ahead of all the others, was  crowded   to  the edge of the  track  and  was  pitched  from his wheel.    Eaton tried to remount,  but found that his tire was flat, and before he got another  wheel  he  was  four  laps in the rear.     The matter was taken  to the referee by Eaton who after some  hours'     consideration    ruled    that    the  Eaton -Waltheur      team    should      take  its     place     with     the    leaders.      This  put the  team  back  only   one  lap,   the  one by which it was leading at the time  the spill occurred, and the  decision   was  received with general protest by  all the  riders.    The four leading teams  were 70  miles ahead of the record at the  close of  the 12nd hour.    Gimm made  the  fornier  record iu  1808   with  707  miles and  0(50  yards to his  credit.     Harley  Davidson,  the  Canadian, withdrew from  the  contest at 8 o'clock, having 329 miles and .50  laps to his credit.  The riders were 70 miles ahead of the  record at the end of the'45th hour. The  score at 12 o'clock was: Miller and Wallet1, 1)33.3 ; Maya and McEaehran, 963.3;  Gim aud Pierce, 903.2 ; Fisher and Chevalier, 9G2.7; Stevens and Turville,  903.5 : Babcoek and Stinson, 902.4;  Schlneer and Forster, 900.2: Thorns and  Dickerson, 917.1 ; The Pasta ires, 810.42.  Through a misunderstanding the Walt-  hour-Eaton team lost four laps about  7.-30 o'clock. They were both off the  track at the same time, not knowing of  each other's temporary retirement.  CHAMBERLAIN MADE A MISTAKE  In His Attack on France.  London, December .I.���More and more  shrewd men of affairs are growing in fear  that this country may in the near future  become embroiled with France. The  universal resentment felt���and it is by  no means confined to the war party���at  the attitude of the French people toward  Great Britain, a resentment intensified  by the scurrilous attacks on queen Victoria, may now lead to the recall of sir  Edmund .1. Monson, British ambassador  to France. True, this recall Avill be but  temporary, if it comes, and will take the  shape of leave of absence, but the moral  effect will be the same.  Add to this the fact that it is practically assured that certain secret war  preparations, such as the mining of Portsmouth harbor, are actively on foot, and  you have a situation unmistakably grave.  Mr. Chamberlain's speech at Leicester  has done nothing to relieve the situation,  as the comment of the Paris press shows.  This address is cooly received here, both  on account of its reference to France and  because of the unwisdom which the British public sees in thus seeking to force the  hand of Germany and the United States.  Thespeechis generally adversely criticised.  In view of the fact that a considerable  section of the German people is unfriendly to- the British proceedings in the  Transvaal, the speech is calculated to put  the emperor in a false position, and possibly to draw from him disclaimers that  will damage the very cause Mr. Chamberlain has advocated Competent  judges think the colonial secretary's  speech has conclusively disposed of his  chances of ever becoming foreign secretary.

The voting upon the money bylaws,  the Canadian Pacific Railway bylaw, and  tlie Madden bylaw passed off very quietly  yesterday.

The Daily  Telegraph says: "What distinguishes  the present from preceding messages is  its all but formal admission that the  United States has been drawn into the  outer eddies of eastern politics. Jt is the  far east which is the real reason for this  partial abandonment of Monroeism. So  far as Great Britain is concerned there is  no apprehension, but rather unqualified  "satisfaction atn_ire^^vdel}_wt~iu'es.-Great  Britain, the United States and Germany  are the powers most concerned in maintaining the open door; and tliat is all  which i.s implied in the use of the word  'alliance,' about which so much unnecessary fuss has been made."  Boers Don't Want Mediation.,  Biu.'.-.SKi-S December 5.���At the Transvaal legation in Brussels, presided over  by Dr. W. J. Leyds, tlie Boeis and their  European representative." do not seek  and do not want mediation. They aro  not afraid of general Methuen's force,  and fear nothing from his march to raise  the siege of Kimberley; while, as for the  Natal boundary they say the Boers can  fall back, if need be, beyond the Drakens-  burg, and have between themselves and  the enemy an almost impenetrable  barrier.  American Dutch Protest.  Rochester, New York, December 5.���  An indignation meeting to protest  against England's course in the Transvaal  was held this evening at the American  Reformed church.

Among them is judge J. M. Coombs, who  has been United States marshal and  United States supreme court commissioner. He has traveled extensively over  the state, visiting nearly all tlie cities  and towns, and has collected interesting  facts concerning the practice of polygamy  in Utah. He states that it is as common  now as before statehood, and that the  foremost men in the churches, the bishops  and others, as well as the lesser men, are  raising families from their plural wives,  making no claim or pretence that they  have ceased their polygamous  practices.

The full returns of the port of Nelson  for the month ending November 30th  were completed yesterday. The most  noteworthy feature of the exports is the  increasing value of the gold exports, the  gold bullion exports for the month being  valued at $48,095. These figures it is understood do not include the exports from  the Athabasca mine amounting to $9000,  which did not arrive in time to be included, but had they been included the  gold exports from the mines around Nelson would have come close up to the  $00,000 mark, -with the Granite and the  other properties yet to enter upon the  shipping list. This means that it will  be but a few months until the gold mines  tributary to Nelson are exporting gold at  the rate of $100,000 per month. As it  is the figures for the past month show  that the value of the gold output was  even greater than the value of all other  products of the mine, something which  never happened before. The exports for  the month were:  The mine���Coke  Lead bullion   ..

New York Poisoning Case.  New York, December a,--The surprise of thevday in the trial'of* Roland B,  Molineux for the murder of JBLatbertne J.

And Municipal Control,  committee   appointed   from   tlie  Monday   evening���consisting  of alderman    Beer,   Hillyer and  Fletcher���to   confer    with    the   school  board relative to the formation of Nelson  as a city school district, met yesterday.  The result of the conference was thatthe  committee will recommend that the city  solicitor  be   instructed   to   prepare   an  amendment  to  the  Public   School Act,  wliich amendment would make Nelson a  city school district.     Tlie petition  will  be presented to the  next session  of the  legislature.    Tt was also agreed to call a  joint meeting of the trustees of the Nelson school and the trustees of the Hume  School District to meet a special  committee   appointed   by the  city   council,  wliich will  meet on  Monday  next, and  prepare  a   petition   asking  the  government for an appropriation of $10,000  for  the erection  and  equipment  of a  high  school.     The    government  will  also  be  asked   to appropriate  block 49 as a site  for the high school building.   This block  is bounded by Hoover, Latimer, Hendryx  and Cedar streets, aud is the  block  that  was originally reserved out of the crown  lands for the provincial jail buildings.  The committee discussed the revenue  which would probably be accruing to the  district under the new regulation. The  revenue under the present system i.s  about $5000. Of this amount $4080 i.,  paid for teachers' salaries, and an allowance of $420 is made for incidentals.  Under the separate district regime the  city would receive an appropriation of  $10 upon the average attendance from  the government. This would aggregate,  according to the present enrollment,  about $3000 per annum. Then the whole  of the provincial revenue tax would be  turned over to the city for school purposes. The committee thought thatthe'  revenue from this souice would be approximately $9000 per annum.  There will also be an addition of four  members to the school board, making  seven school trustees instead of three as  at present. These will be elected with  the mayor and aldermen. If the petition  is granted at the next ses.sion of the legislature, as it seems certain to be at present, the new government in school affairs will be inaugurated at the close of  the present school year, so that the opening of the school year in the fall of 1900  W>,.m would see the control of the Nelson  schools vested in the hands of > the local  board. *  j A Bride .Belated.  vFred J. White ofGrgnd  Forks arrived  in the city yesterday and made arrangements to meet his bride at this point and  be  married.     The young   lady  is  Miss''  Carrie Sigmann  of  Brantford, Ontario,,  which is also Mr. White's  former  home.  The wedding was to have'been solemnized  at the  Hume  hotel last  night at vS  o'clock and preparations  wevo made  for  a sumptuous dinner to follow the  ceremony.    All   was  in expectant  readiness  last night  until the  arrival of the train  from Spokane, which   was to bring  the  bride.     .She did not appear and the cere-  mond has been  postponed awaiting news  from  the bride.-    Mr. White received  a  dispatch   from    his    fiancee   sent from  DevilV  Lake,  North  Dakota, while  en-  route, and it is  supposed  that tlie  train  missed  connection   with   the   train    for  Nelson at "Spokane.

The Nelson organ of the bucking mine  owners is hostile because the city purchased the electric light .system; so hostile that it wilfully lies whenever it has  an opportunity. This hostility has no  other basis than personal hatred of tlio  Wen who sold .the electric light!  &yat>em     to     the     city.      The      facts I night to. consider the wharf .iiipstion ar-  are   that    tlie    electric     light    system  is worth to the city every dollar that  it has  cost.     The  personal  hostility is  based on tlie intolerant spirit that manifests itself to a greater or less degree in  all communities.    In Nelson this intolerance   is   carried    to   extremes.      Every  measure favored by tlie men Avho built  the waterworks, the telephone system, the  electric light works, men who put every  dollar they could raise into improvements  that  kept Nelson going at a time when  to stand still meant that the town would  be surpassed by rivals, is bucked by the  element wlio now use the Miner for a  mouthpiece.     Up  to   the   80th   day   of  November the electric light system has  cost  the city $52,929.27,  against which  debentures have been issued, aggregating  $55,000, bearing 5 per cent interest.    Kor  the eleven  months ending  the  .'.0 th  of  November,-the receipts from electric light  rates amounted to $11,(570.33; the cost of  maintainnnce for the same period being  $2102.71.    This leaves the city $051 .'..59  profit for eleven months, or at the rate of  JjilO^S.-lO for the year, which is 18.87 per  cent   on    the   debenture   indebtedness.  After   deducting   interest   and   sinking  fund charges for the year of shv $5000,  the city  will  have   ���*_���."���'. 78.10  net  profit.  The statement   that the ground   upon  which the electric light plant stood was  not  the property of the "gentlemen or  company who sold it" is intended to mislead.    The Xelson  Electric   Light   Company  owned outright  eight lots at the  -power���house and-a-50-yeai.-lease for���the-  flume    right-of-way  across  the   Farwell  tract of land.  Jt did not own the landat  the  dam,  ant]  never  pretended that  it  did.    The company had an understanding  with the owners of the land thaC if  the Hoover Addition' was treated as was  the government townsite, in the way of  street lights and private-house, lighting,  that  the land at the dam could  bo used  for a nominal consideration, or purchased  at any time for a,nominal sum.    Whether  the city paid a nominal sum for the land  remains to be seen.  Turc waterworks system has cost the  city $75,011.83, and has earned for the  eleven month.1, ending the 30th of November $8922.58 at a cost of $2910.IS for  maintenance. The profit, therefore, for  the eleven months was $5976.40, or at the  rate of $0519.70 for the year. The interest and sinking fund charges on $75,041.83  for a year will bo $0753.7(5, whieh is  slightly in excess of the net receipts for  this year. It will be argued that the cost  of maintenance was*, excessive this yeai1  because of the freezing up of the flume  last winter, and that the interest and  sinking fund charges this year cannot be  estimated on the full cost of the system,  as $30,000 of the water-works debentures  were issued in July last. Granting this,  it must be admitted that there will not  be much margin of profit to the city if  the water-works system is operated as it  has been under the present council.  Tun business men who met on Monday  rived at the right conclusion. They do  not favor patching up the present wharf.  They want a new and modern wharf  built. But this conclusion is not the one  arrived at by the chairman of the public-  works committee of the city council, who  is an avowed candidate for mayor. The  chairman of the public works committee  wants the present wliarf pieced out and  patched up. He wants this done right  away. It is a well-known fact that the  chairman of the public works committee  i.s not over-anxious to make any permanent public improvements anywhere east  of Stanley street, and a modern wharf at  the foot of Hall street would be such an  improvement. He is well .aware that  $5000 expended on the present wharf before election day would* be of as much  benefit as was the government appropriation of $1000 that was so hastily expended on the same wharf a few days  before the provincial election in 1898;  and the expenditure would be made with  the same object in view.  Thk successors of the present council  will no doubt build a wharf that will  meet every requirement of the business  interests of the town, and if they should  be permitted to do the building (which  they should), they should also be allowed  to provide the ways and means for paying for the work that they undertake.  The attempts of alderman Fletcher and  alderman Beer to saddle more debenture  indebtedness on the city in the last  month of their term of oflice are not at  all creditable to these gentlemen. Their  successors may be able to build a wharf  and procure all necessary fire-lighting  appliances out .of current revenue, and,  anyway, they should be allowed as a free  hand in such matters as aldermen Fletcher  and Beer have had during their term in  oflice.    Thk business inethods of the present  council are well illustrated by the fact  that they have raised the salaries of all  the subordinate city officials, except the  city engineer, and they have provided  him with aii assistant, and lowered the  salary of the mayor from $2000 .i year to  $1200. The mayor is the responsible  head of the city's business, yet he is paid  a less .salary than several of the. clerks  under him.  FRED IRVINE & GO.

District.  SAVINGS BANK BRANCH.  CURRENT RATK OK INTEREST PAID  KEEP COOL.  Hutte Mining World.  Mining is ti legitimate business which  requires as much prudence, good hard  common sense and cool calculation . to  carry to a successful end as any other  business. There is jvst enough risk, in  the course of mining, to keep the nerves  of the operator, somewhat tightened, to  make him more or less expectant, but not  enough to throw him off his mental  equilibrium and make' him lose sight of  details and to hug millions before he  makes a dollar. We are speaking of  experienced, practical miners. They keep  cool.  There are those, however, who jump  into a mining scheme with the recklessness of the gambler. They taste the  possession of wealth with the first  shovelful of earth thrown, and live upon  hopes which may never end in fruition. The  higher they build the harder they fall, if  fall they do. They did not go into business the right way. They looked upon a  claim as a prospect, a prospect as amine,  and a mine as a bonanza. They didn't  keep cool. They gave full rein to their  imaginings aud fell in its sump. To them  mining was a gamble, and they dropped  beside the box. Too many thus ruin  themselves and become initiated in the  ancient and dishonorable order of chumps  and croakers, no good to themselves or to  others. They are unfortunates* whom  the tears and persuasions, alone, of loved  ones at home may retire them to the  potato patch they left to become westei u  mining.* kings.  The placer miner may ''clean up" every  evening, every Saturday afternoon or tit  the end  of the water running   season.  He knows about what he is making and  doesn'A get excited over his prospects.  He will look for something better among  the foothills. He may strike it, but he  keeps cool. He is it miner from whom  years of hard work and harder experience  liave clipped the wings of imagination,  and he works in a shaft or tunnel as he  worked upon his placer ground, steadily  yet hopeful, but never dreaming of big  strikes, or sudden great wealth. He is  cool and calculating and never becomes  excited. Of such are successful miners.  They go about the business as do every  day practical business men about theirs.  They always keep cool.  Fifty years ago tlie young1.adventurers  expected to turn over si California rock  and pick up a fortune. Many of them  have since hewn fortunes out of seemingly adamantine obstacles, but they got it  all the same and learned to keep cool.  Old miners are always cool, the younger  ones need the warning.  Only a Day Old.  The news service of tlie Canadian Pacific is a trifle slow-geared. News that is  printed in the American papers on Sunday is foisted on the Western Canadian  papers on Monday. But it is useless to  kick. The Canadian Pacific has the cinch,  and they'll keep.it until there is a paper  in British Columbia strong enough financially to tell them to go to hades with  their news service.  Petitions Are Not Effectvie.  ..j .   .  Toronto News.  Temperance . people collectively are  asking the governor-general to dismiss  his ministers because they refuse prohibition, who individually vote for members of parliament whom they know are  opposed to prohibition. This is one of  the peculiarities of human natures.  People can be led in droves to do extraordinary things, who singly are without the moral stamina required to  cast a ballot against tlieir party.' After  they have stumped and voted for and  elected candidates who are known to be  antagonistic to their purpose, they pass  a long-winded resolution, sign it in bulk,  and send it to the governor-general,  knowing, full well that it can have no  effect except to make its authors ridiculous. The people of Canada will never  get a prohibition Act by voting for sympathizer.-, with the liquor interest and  petitioning the governor-general to dismiss them. ��� When party bonds are not  as tight as those wliich bind them to the  temperance cause there will be some hope  for their success.  Is an Englishman.  Toronto Globe.  A correspondent writes:    "In your issue of last Saturday you publish a letter  from 'T. D. H.,' in which it is stated that  lord Methuen is ' the bearer of a Scottish  title and was probably born north of the  Tweed.'    This is entirely incorrect.   Lord'  Methuen is an Englishman, and the whole  family on  both  sides  of the house have  been'English  for  generations backhand  all   the   family  connections  are equally  English.    His title  is baron Methuen of  Corsham, county Wilts, 'England (barony  created in 1838),  and  the one and only  family seat in Corsham Hall.     It is mentioned by Burke that John   Methven of  Bishop's  Cannings,   Wilts,  held  a  high  position of state in the reigns of William  and Queen Anne; also  that  the  ancient  family   of   Methuen  is stated to have  taken    its   name   from   the barony   of  Methven in  Perthshire.    If under'these  circumstances lord Methuen is a  Scotchman, I am quite  willing  to  be  called 'a  Dutchman.' "_   Secret Service Funds Safe.

Nelson, August 19th, 1899.  LOCAL NEWS IN BRIEF.  L. Craig of the  branch at Republic  Hume.  Bank   of Halifax's  is  stopping  at  the  II. Stevenson and wife of Ainswortli  are in the city for a few days. Mr.  Stevenson is the manager of the Tariff  mine at Ainswortli.  H. L. Johnson, roadmaster of tlie Nakusp & Slocan branch of the C. P. R.,  arrived in the city yesterday from Slocan  City.  Lots 2"_ and 2-1 in  yesterday    to   Mrs,  $1350 by S. Tytler.  on Vernon street.  block  70  were  sold  Louise  Traves    for  The property fronts  There is now very little work for the  prisoners in the Nelson jail, and unless  work is found for them the institution  will be advertised among the criminal  element all over the district, as an easy  place in which to put in the winter.  If the bids of the insurance companies  are received in time a decision will probably be reached this evening by the  members of the fire department with respect to the insurance of the members of  the brigade. The funds for the premiums  were raised at the recent smoker.  It is not considered likely that Mr.  justice Martin will hand down any judgment during the present sitting of the  supreme court in the cases of the City of  Nelson vs. Traves and of Traves vs. the  City. It is said that the stenographer's  notes of the evidence have not yet been  extended. _______  A. Ii. Clements has sold 87A feet frontage on Victoria street and 120 feet depth  on Ward street, with the two residences  thereon, for $9000 cash, T. J. Duncan  beiug the purchaser. Mr. Clements paid  $5500 for the property, and has therefore  cleaned np $3500 on the deal. This is  the last piece of real estate owned in  Nelson by Mr. Clements.  In speaking of the proposal of the city  council to spend $5000 in patching up  the city wharf, the local head of one of  the largest shipping firms in the city remarked yesterday that such a course was  in keeping with the policy of a council  which had allowed the tramway company to render the streets impassable by  the manner in wliich its.rails were laid.  A council which would not protect the  streets of the city could hardly be expected to provide good shipping facilities.    The smelter returns from the last shipment of Exchequer ore to the Hall Mines  smelter have been received. As they  have not yet reached the hands of the  proper .officers of the company the returns are not made public, though they  are said to be highly satisfactory.  Fred Tregilhis, who has been on a visit  to his brother for several weeks is contemplating a visit to Great Britain by  way of China. Fred Tregilhis spent several years iu mining in Cariboo and is to  fixed that he can see something of the  rest of the world.  Work upon the Yellowstone ten-stamp  mill is progressing favorably and if  nothing unforseen happens superintendent Haultaiue expects to be able to  commence crushing rock about tlie middle  of January. In this event the prediction,  that the-Yellowstone's first gold brick  would be shipped in February, will be  verified.  Lively Times Predicted.  W. C. B. Koch landed several head of  his freighting stock at Ten-mile last  week, and he anticipates a full season's  operations. Finishing touches are being  put upon the new bunk-house at the Enterprise, which is expected to resume operations before Christinas. Mr. Koch  will also erect a large saw and planing  mill at the Halfway house on Ten-mile, and  will have it thoroughly equipped and  modern in all its details. Ten-mile is  expected to have genuine prosperity  next season.    " c  "Joe" is Not a Politician.  The Rossland Record says that ex-  attorney-general Martin is in Rossland  attending a sitting of the supreme court,  and assumes that he is laying pipe to  head a labor ticket at the next provinci-vl  election. Mr. Martin is probably attending .strictly to his legal business, leaving  the business, of politics to less able men  than himself.  Although 'the details were arranged  some time ago by mayor Neelands and  the provincial police officials for the employment ofthe provincial prisoners in  the breaking of stone for tlie .streets of  the city, a start has not yet  been   made.  BUSINESS   MENTION.  A Pointer to Alderman Fletcher.  All alderman Fletcher needs to do to  realize his one ambition, that is, to become mayor of Nelson, is to circulate a  report, that if he is not elected to the  position, the C.-.P. R. will remove its land  office to Robson. Tlie people will do the  rest.
