London, November 80.���-Joseph Chamberlain, secretary of state for the colonies, in a speech at a luncheon at Leicester  today, said that ever since the great split  in. the Liberal  party  he had found himself a mark for  the slanders and misrepresentations of  the "baser sort of politicians," but, he added, he had found compensation in the generous appreciation of  the majority of his  countrymen.    Continuing,   Mr.  Chamberlain   .said he was  deeply gratified that the foreign relations  of Great Britain   were so satisfactory.  The country owed a debt of gratitude to  lord Salisbury for the great improvement  of Great  Britain's   position.    It  was especially  gratifying,  he   pointed  out, to  note the  friendly  relations existing between the Anglo-Saxon  branches, saying  the  understanding between  the United  States and  Great  Britain  was the index  of a guarantee of the peace of tlie world.  This statement was  greeted with cheers.  It  was  of   the  utmost  importance, Mr.  Chamberlain    further    remarked,    that  Great Britain should not remain isolated  in Europe, and  her  natural'alliance was  with the great German empire.   They had  had difficulties  with Germany, but their  interests and sentiments were the same,  and an understanding between the Teutonic and Anglo-Saxon   races  might do  more than any combination of armies to  preserve the  peace of the  world.    The  world, he asserted, was not governed entirely by interest; sentiment was oue of  the greatest factors.  Referring to the attacks of the foreign  press, Mr. Cluimberlain said the newspapers had not even spared the most  sacred person of the queen. This, continued the speaker, provoked natural indignation, which may have serious consequences if our neighbors do not mend  their ways.  .Dealing with the attitude of foreign  nations, Mr. Chamberlain said: "I rejoice, and it is perhaps natural, for 1 have  taken a personal interest in the matter  of the friendly feeling which. I hope is  now permanent between the two great  branches of the Anglo-Saxon race. I  have so many friends in the United  States���almost as many as T have here���  and I conceive of no greater disaster to  tlie two countries than to find themselves  hostile to each othei'. Yet 1 remember  .then 1 first visited America my surprise  and astonishment at the evidence given  me by statesmen, politicans and in  articles in the press, of the constant suspicion of the objects of Great Britain,  constant doubt's as to her integrity, and  general unfavorable estimate of our prospects and character. Once addressing a  great meeting in Philadelphia, 1 ventured  to say that what we \. an ted vas n new  Columbus, to set out from America to  discover the United Kingdom, and return to America and toll them something  they did not know of the strange  character of the inhabitants of these  islands.  "This ill feeling  was due no doubt  to  many causes :   due  to  the  fact that the  United States   has   never   been   at war  with any great power but Ktigland;  due  to their traditions, extending over a century; due to a feeling that the sympathy  of Great Britain   was  not  with  them in  tlie civil war, and to  the   general  belief  that the people of  Great  Britain  would  see   with   satisfaction   any   harm   that  might befall them.      It   appeared to me  almost useless   to   contradict   these mistaken Opinions : but what the assistance  of statesmen could not  do  was  done by  the sympathy we were able to give them  when the United States  found itself the  object of   suspicion,   a. hich has so of ten  accompanied our own  transactions when  -en gaged-itia warof���justice-against"op--  pression; a war in favor of  civilization  and good government. Our action proved  to the Americans that wo are  indeed one  people, of the same thoughts and guided,  by the same principles.     The   assurance  that was given them in the course of the  Spanish war will, 1 believe, never  be forgotten and has placed our relations in an  admirable position.  "The union���the alliance, if you please  ���the understanding between the two  great nations is indeed a guarantee of the  peace of the world. But there is .something more,whieh 1 think every far-seeing  English statesman has long desired, that  is, that we should not remain permanently isolated from the continent of Europe,  and I think ib must have appeared' evident to everybody that the natural alliance is between ourselves and the German  empire. We have had our differences,  quarrels, and contentions; they all have  been about petty matters. These difficulties have been gradually removed, until now 1 cannqtt conceive that any point  can arise in tlie immediate future which  can bring ourselves and Germany into  antagonism of interests On the contrary, I can forsee many things in the  future which must cause anxiety to the  statesmen of Europe, but in whieh our  interests are clearly the same as Germany's, and oi" which the understanding,  of which I have spoken in the case of  America, were it to be extended to Germany, would do more perhaps, than any  combination* Of arms to preserve the  peace of the world."  FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 1,  1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WHBKIii*, $2.  of Chicago, charged with embes.dement.  He was arraigned at the Bow Street police court here today. A representative  of the United States embassy said the  embassy had no knowledge of the affair,  and asked for a remand to enable the  embassy to communicate with Washington as to whether the authorities wished  for the prisoner's extradition. A remand  until Saturday was granted. It is understood that Simpson is a defaulting ex-  auditor of the city of Chicago. A receipt  for 2000 livres paid for jewelry purchased  in Rome and pledged in Dublin was  found ou him.  The Line Beopened to Estcourt.  Estcourt, November 27.���The Twelfth  Lancers are reported as having  attacked  Piet Retrief's  force at Weeuen aud inflicted great loss on the  Boers.     General  Hildyard's troops bivouacked  yesterday  (night) at Frere.    Two Boers  have  been  captured.     One of them, a doctor, entered the British camp uncler the belief that  it was the Boer bivouac.     General  Joubert, it is reported, retreated  to  Coienso  yesterday   by   way of   Chieveley.     He  travelled   in an  omnibus  drawn  by  six  horses.    Two Estcourt trains arrived  at  Frere yesterday evening.    There is great  rejoicing  at  the reopening  of the  line.  The Boer  prisoners  report that  geueral  Hildyard's night attack with  cold  steel  paralyzed  the    burghers,   whose   losses  were SO killed and over 100 wounded.  i�� M��-see****. **_* et^  An Alleged Defaulting Official.  London,   November    80.���Michael   J.  Simpson was arrested at   a village near  -Limerick, Ireland, on Tuesday, November  28th, on the.request ofthe;-ehiefydet��(ctiye:  NO WAR NEWS OF IMPORTANCE  Received from London This Morning.  London, December 1���4:30 a. in.���Beyond the report from Estcourt that firing  was heard in the direction of Ladysmith  on Monday, there is not a shred of news  of any kind from the seat of war. A  semi-official statement has been issued  that lord Metheun's wound is not serious  .and that he is expected to be all right in  the course of a few days. It is certain,  however, that the wound will prevent his  being iu the saddle, and there is great  anxiety to known whether he will be  compelled temporarily to abandon > the  personal direction of affairs. ,llisnext���in  command is colonel Colville, commanding the Guards brigade. He has a reputation as an excellent officer.  As men are needed in all directions,  lord Wolseley'sannouneenient that a new  division will be embarked without delay,  has been received with the* greatest satisfaction. The transports will soon be  returning from the Cape and it is hoped  that the men will be despatched speedily.  On this point the Morning Post says :  "The sooner we can make up our minds  as to the magnitude of the work in hand,  the sooner it will be accomplished."  Baden-Powell all Right at Mafeking.  London, November 30.���Colonel Baden-  Powell, under date Mafeking, November  20bh, sent the following to the war office  through Forrester-Walker at Capetown:  "All well here. Cronje gone with commando and about twenty wagons to  R_>cetar*n, Transvaal, leaving most of his  guns with the Marco and Lichtenburg  contingents, with orders to shell us into  submission. The bombardment and skirmishing continue with very small results.  The enemy's sentries drew n.^Qnt_on Sat-  "u"rday"by"niakih^Ti~sliow"of"going away,  and leaving a big gun apparently in a  state of being dismantled. Our scouts  found the enemy hidden J in a forest, so  we sat tight. The enemy's 4-pounder bo-  came damaged and has been replaced by  another more efficient. Am daily pushing our advance, work with good effect.  The health of tlie garrison is good. So  casualties to report."  Eulogized the British Troops.  London, November BO.���Lord Wolseley,  speaking in London this evening, eulogized the conduct of the British troops in  Soutli Africa and confirmed the semiofficial announcement that another  division of the second army corps would  be called out. This division, he said,  would soon be on tin. way to the Cape.  He expressed himself as confident that  the reserves would respond to the call  with the same obedience and pride that  had marked the responses to previous  calls.    Enthusiastic Demonstrations of Friendship.  London, December 1.���The annual  Thanksgiving banquet of the American  Society in London was attended by 27.5  guests, and was marked by enthusiastic  demonstrations of friendship for England in the war against the Boers. A  striking speech by^ ambassador Choate  along these lines and the presence of the  uniformed nurses and doctors of the American hospital ship Maine were the  features of the occasion.  Ladysmith Bombarded.  ; London, December 1. ��� The Times  publishes, the following dispatch from  Frere, Natal, dated November 27 th:  ������Ladysmith was heavily bombarded������to-  Hi  Ui  *  Hi  *  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  iii  iii  iii  iii '  iti  iti  iii  iii  Hi  Hi  %  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  i_>  iii  iii  tli  Hi  \li  Hi  Hi  iii  Ui  iii  iti  iii  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  iii  iii  iii  iii  tli  iii  tli  tli  iii  iii  iii  iii  iii  iii  iii  iii  iii  iii  iii  iii  iii  iii  iii  ii.  ii/  iii  iii  iii  iii  iii  tli  tli  THE KILLED AND WOUNDED AT THE MODDER RIVER FIGHT  London, November .30.���The war office received from the general  commanding at Capetown  the following :  "Received from Modder River, November '10th : Killed���.Staff colonel-IT.

General Methuen was wounded slightly by a bullet, which inflicted a  flesh wouud in the thigh.  Lieutenant Loud of the Second Yorkshires is auother officer killed.  The following officers were also wounded:. Lieutenant Traverse, Third  Grenadiers;   lieutenants Elwees and Hill, Scots Guards; lieutenant Flint.���'.  Lancashires ; majors Barle and Ottley and lieutenant Fox, Second Yorkshires; lieutenants Baker, Carr and Neilson, Argyle Highlanders.  Colonel Northcote participated in the Sh'erbroe expedition iu West  Africa in 1883, where he was desperately'wounded; in the Zulu war; the  Ashantee expedition, and in the Karagwe expedition in 1893, for which he  was made a Companion of the Bath. Recently he commanded the northern  Gold Coast territory. '  Lieutenant-colonel Stopford had seen actual service.  Major count Gleichen is a relative of the queen, is a major of the  Grenadier Guards, and is the oldest son of the late prince; Victor of Hohen-  lohe-Langenburg. He took part in the Nile expedition of 1884-85; was  attached to sir West Ridgeway's mission to Morocco in 1893; did special  service in the Soudan in 1890, and was attached to Mr. Reed's mission to  Abyssinia in 1897. He has been staff captain of the intelligence division of  the war office since 189.-5.  Lieutenaut-colonel Stopford's death ends a most promising career. He  was the officer mainly responsible for working out the plans for the mobilization scheme.  \************************************************************j>  ***.  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  w  m  w  *  m  m  , ��  m  m  ���m  m  91  ***.  as  w  *  *  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  ���*!��  m  <n  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  *i��  m  ���*���*���  m  *  m  m  <n  m  m  _*  CRIMES AND CASUALTIES.

Kimberley in no Great Banger.  KlmukrlI'.y, Novembei' 24, by way of  Klokfoutein, November 24.���There were  a few shots early today from the direction of Wright's farm, but this was regarded as merely one of the Boer tricks  to draw our men out. This afternoon  the Boers blew up two large culverts near  the rifle butts on the railway line towards  Spyfon tein. The news of tho proximity  of the relieving forces greatly cheered  the garrison and the inhabitants, A few  Boers were seen today, but it is believed  the enemy is only in small bands around  Kimberley, lots of 50 or so, the greater  part having gone to Spyfontein, .where  firing is believed to have been heard  about noon. There are two large Boer  laagers at Olifant's dam, with 150 wagons  for water supply. The Boers have cut  the existing dam three miles distant, allowing the water to run down toward  their laagers into an old dry dam on the  farm. This is believed to be the Free  State base of operations on the western  border. The official estimate places the  number of Boer shells fired during the  bombardment of Kimberley at about one  thousand, and ours at no fewer than six  hundred. As the enemy's shells so frequently hit soft, sandy ground, the explosive effect is greatly neutralized. AU  our wounded are in a very satisfactory  condition. An armored train proceeded  toward Dronfield to reeonnoiter. but this  immediately aroused the enemy's cordite  gun, and the train returned after the  fifth shell liad been fired. Tlie Boers are  firing on the reservoir from Wimbledon.  HOTEL ARRIVALS.  The Queen's���C. Ewart, Kaslo; John  Bull, .Slocan City; W. H. McKerrow, Vancouver ; J. S. Richardson, Sandon; Mrs,  W. S.

Montreal, November SO.���Aii'interesting judgment was rendered this morning,  iii;*.. the court of..:_*ev|e.n'-.,. in 'fch.'ey-.:'eiise,"of *  Napoleon Bonhomme vs. Robert Bicker-  dike, M. P. P., the well-known  cattle ex  porter of this city.   Bonhomme claimed  $005 damages for loss sustained by going  to   Edmonton   in   the   employ   of    the  trustees of the Trading & Mining Company of Canada,  Limited, alleged  to be  then in course of formation.     The plaintiff based his action on the ground  that  he was induced to go into the  enterprise  on   the strength  of Bickerdike's name,  which    appeared   on    the    prospectus.  Judge Curran in the  superior court  dismissed the action, holding it not proved  that Bickerdike knew of the  transaction  at the time.    The court of review reversed the judgment aud held  Bickerdike responsible for the amount claimed, on the  ground  that   the  prospectus   contained  errpueous   and false   statements,  which  Bickerdike knew.    Sixteen  other similar  actions are now likely to follow.  Still Fighting in the Philippines.

SASH AND DOORS.  through a lack of knowledge and foresight, or a desire to win big profits. However this may be, the difficulty could  be remedied if the question were given  proper attention by both parties. All  must admit that it is n pernicious  principle. It drains a town of all its  ready cash, local enterprises are ignored,  and business men become stagnant. The  money that is sent out is lost to the community. It goes to enrich the white  slave drivers of the east. They know  nothing of the welfare of this town or  that, and care less. They do not have to  contribute to the public enterprises, do  uot help to improve the town, do not  care who the needy be. -Their demand is  cash'before.delivery, cash all along the  line. That's business.. But where would  the average family be if the local raer-=  eliant were to adopt this'vule"?      - "  There-is another view of th:-, question-  tliat ought to be-considered.*, lb is told  by "Kit" in the Toronto Mail aud Empire:  "It is so. easy to talk platitudes when-  you're had a good  dinner and sit comfortably clothed and warm iu your snug  room. * But   think  of   youth and1 fresh'  girlhood fading day afterday in the dim  precincts   of    factory   find, sweat-s^iop;  thinV of every hope slowly dying;' of the"  want and' despair tand  pinching  out of  the meager gray days.    And side by side  with   this,  terrible  existence   place  the  temptations that always come to poor  youth, and to poor girlhood. - How many  of us who are  better, off would keep to  the straight and narrow path Avere we in  a like case, while the broad  highway- on  which lie  the pleasures and luxuries of  life shines so near.    But on that way lies  sin !    Well, when the heart and brain are  dulled to  apathy, the  conscience  is   not  apt to be very sensitive.    When want of  decent   food, of  clothing, and heat, and  the common necessities assail one, when  "hT)iTe"st"toil~will ifofbrilfg Ifonest" wageTif  takes a very strong soul to keep ou that  narrow, grim way.      And   we   are only  human.     A great and terrible account  will be laid at the doors of the masters  in trade   when   the   summing  up times  come for us all.     The traffic of   the factories and sweat-shops is as much a trafficking in   llesh   and blood as ever was  that of the slave trade.    There is not one  of these despairing  or reckless girls who  goes down to titter destruction and ruin  after an unavailing attempt to earn a decent livelihood by the work of her hands  but will have to be accounted for by  those in whose hands the power lay to  help her."        Are Not Sounding Tlieir Own Trumpets.  Toronto Telegram.  British generals seem to be unable to  magnify their triumphs or minimi__e their  disasters. They have no skill in the publication of their own achievements, and it  is probable that the action at Belmont  was much more important and significant than general Methuen's report would  indicate. No British general has so far  given himself the best side of the story  he tells. General White's report of the  disaster at Nicholson's Nek was just  twice as bad as "the facts, and it is not  impossible that the result at Belmont  may be twice as good as general Methuen's report.   Fatal Bear-End Collision.  New York, November 29.���Six persons were killed and about as many more  injured, some probably fatally, in a railroad, wreck on the Delaware & Lackawanna at a crossing at Paterson, New  Jersey, tonight.

The two rear cars of the express  were totally wrecked.  A Prominent Doctor's Whereabouts.

Julian Ralph, in a recent letter to the  London Daily Mail, writes interestingly  from Cape Town to the following purport  on the contrast���as noted by an American journalist���between the spirit now  being displayed in Cape Town by the  young British volunteer officers, eager for  the fray, on tlie one hand, and a large  number of well-to-do Johannesburg refugees ou the other : **-  On every ship that arrives in Cape  Town from London are many British  army officers.  Some ships bring a dozen or twenty;  others as many as fifty. They are tlie  pick and flower of Englishmen. Most of  them are young men, in the late twenties and early thirties, bearing distinguished names, exhibiting the long,  sleuder faces of the Bi'itish aristocracy,  carrying themselves at once like dandies  and like athletes.  The one strange tiling about them is  that nobody is sending them here, aud  they do not know to what part ofthe  seat of war they are going or what they  are going to do. They only know that  they could not keep away. Tliey are  here to see what they call "the fun." Jt  is a war against bushwhackers, guerillas,  and sharpshooters, in which a far greater  proportion of officers than men are certain to be killed, but that does uot matter to them. The first accounts of  skirmishes they read after they have  landed tell of the .death of officers and  wounding of others. Apparently die  manner in which tho enemy reveals its  presence among the hills out Natal way  is by the dropping of an officer from his  saddle or in his tracks as he pushes ahead  of his men. What of that? It is part of  " the fuu," they sny.  Tliere fine young fellows have come  during their leave of absence, which have  been well earned in active service, in disagreeable climates, in lonely garrison  posts in the Soudan or on the Indian  frontier. One who came here with me  has given up a billet for which he had  long beeu striving, and whieli was offered  to him just as he had determined to come  out here and do a little fighting for variety. Another of my companions on the  voyage was starting to make a long-  projeeted tour of the world, but this disturbance proved more attractive. A  third officer on the same ship arrived in  England to sec his people, from whom he  liad loug been separated, but he got no  furthcr__thnn  London, _and__oiil>*-_s(ay_ed  P. Burns <�� Co.

S., Atlir*, B. C, and  Dawson Gity,c,Yuk,ori District  four days when he caught the spirit of  Ins comrades and bolted for South Africa.  On another ship was a young man witli  an income of ��10,000 a year, who was  just about to be married, but instead of  sending his bride to St. George's he asked  her down to Waterloo to see him off for  Durban. /  I watched these men on shipboard during seventeen days. They were up at  six o'clock every morning, running in  slippers and pyjamas in order to keep  themselves in good condition, then plunging into a cold bath and coming out on  the deck again in flannels as fresh and  blooming as new-cut flowers. All day  they read about South Africa in the  libraries they had brought along with  them, and which they exchanged for  other books that other men had brought  on board. They were, as I say, the best  of Englishmen���wide-awake, well informed, proud, polished, polite, considerate and bounding with animal health and  high spirits.  The more I saw of them the angrier I  got at all I have ever read about the  various fanatical people on earth who  are celebrated for not being afraid to die  ���the Soudan Dervishes, I mean, and the  stolid Turks and pilfering Albanians, and  now, last of all, these wooden-headed  Boers. Of some of these we are told that  they welcome death, of others that they  believe themselves in God's care.. And  what of tliese English ? Are they afraid  to die? Who would say such a thing���  or think it for a moment1���of these splendid fellows who have led England's ranks  against every fanatic on earth except the  Turk? They are ready to die as any  men, and they rank above their foes as  towers rise above tlie lowly grass,- be-  cau.se they risk their lives with a full  knowledge of what they are doing, and  because in risking themselves they risk  the most enviable lot of . wliich any man  can boast. The incomes, the estates, the  wives and sisters, the companions, the  sports, the clubs, the comforts and the  luxuries, with which these 'men can'surround themselves whenever they will,ja. e,  ties which should make life dearer to  them than tlie bare, hard, lot of most of  the poor wretches whom historians and  poets have glorified for not fearing death;  every one of whom, I honestly believe,  fears it more than these splendid, dashing fellows-, who keep on carving empires  out of tlie map to swell the size of England.  "Been to Government House?" 1 asked  one of tliese yesterday. -  "No," said he, "aud I'm not going. I'm  afraid they might send me somewhere  out of the thick of things. I'm don't  want them to know I'm here. I'm going  to wherever it's livelic-t. I'll be certain  to find somebody under whom I have  served or with whom 1 have fought, so  I'll see the best of it."  And that was the man who told me  that out of 100 men with whom he studied for the service seventy-five are dead  already, fifteen of illnesses and sixty of  bullet wounds and spear thrusts.  It is disgusting ta leave these men aud  t im into any one of the Cape Town hotels to find yourself surrounded by the  rich ref ugees_f mm Johannesburg, and -to  hear theba cry like children as they tell  you what they wiiriose if the British do  not hurry up and take the Transvaal before the Boers destroy Johannesburg.  They actually cry in their plates at dinner, and half .strangle themselves by sobbing as they drink their whisky at bedtime. The Mount Nelson, the Queen's  and the Grand hotels are all full of tliese  merchants and millionaires, faring on the  fat of the land, idle, loafing all of every  day, and discussing what per cent of their  losses the British government will pay  when they put in their claims at the end  of the war.  Some came here as clerks, some as  laborers in the mines, and some are  merchants who brought ��10 worth of  goods out of Birmingham a dozen years  ago. They tell you they have left ��100,-  000 worth, or ��80,000 worth of goods- in  their shop, and that altogether ��25,000,-  000 is in danger of destruction at Johannesburg.  " Oh, mine Got!" one has just been  saying to me; "I can'd dell how much I  shall lose by diss peezness. I speak mit  inucli feeling, my frent. Blease excuse  me grying. Vot you dink ? Do you  dink'I shall get back dirty-dree per cent  of vot I lose from the Brisish government? Oh, Got! den I lose ��00,000���  ain-ditderrible?"  They are pulling their long faces all  over the place and shedding their tears  whenever you meet them. It is enough  to make a statue ill to have to hear and  see them and move among them. Why  don't they equip a regiment of rough-  riders or make up a battalion of volunteers: among themselves ? Why don't  they fight? The war has jeopardized  their property, and they have a keener  interest:in it tbau any Tommy or any  officer now at the front. How can -they  see the cream and flower of British manhood rushing down here to spill its precious blood for them and never feel a  blush of shame or pang of any emotion  except grief over losses which will still  leave many of them rich ?  Really,1 Gape Town is a wonderful  place; It is worth the journey to see the  streets blocked with able young men and  the hotels crowded by rich refugees,  while each night's train takes out the  fearless gentlemen who are deliberately  risking not only their lives but more of  earthly advantage than can ever come to  tliese skulkers who cling to the shelter of  England's guns and weep while they wait  for men to die that they may rush up to  the British treasury with their claims.  If the exhibition tliese refugees are  making in Cape Town were as important  as it is'eonspieuouSj one would think the  Englishmen in charge here would drop  the contest where it is and go home in  "disgust. But it is only a pha?e of a side  issue, quite apart" from the principle at  stake.  NEWS BY MAIL AUD WIKE.  certain whether any of the fatus lost in  the process of manufacture.

Judge Forin held that a judgment  which was given in the Ontario courts  against J. D. Kelly and in favor of the  McLaughlin Carriage Company was  valid,, and re-affirmed the old judgment  yesterday. J. D. Kelly purchased a  buggy from the McLaughlin company on  a conditional sale, but did not pay for it.  The carriage company seized the buggy,  which Kelly afterwards replevined.  Judgment was given in favor of the company for $75. Afterward the buggy was  sold to a third party! Kelly claimed in  his defence that tlie company, by electing to sell the buggy, waived the judgment, and thereby tlie judgment would  be nullified. The court held that tlie  fornier judgment was not waived, but  remained valid. Ilannington for the  plaintiff and Macdonald for  the defence.  The case of Thurston vs. Tattersall was  set over to tlie next term of the court  yesterday on account of the serious illness of one of the witnesses for the defence.  " Let the tail go with the hide," said  the court yesterday as he gave a judgment of .$88 and an outfit of tools.to the  plaintiff in settlement of a claim made  by Mrs. Maglio against Joseph Little, a  sub-contractor on the Columbia &  Kootenay railway. Mrs. Maglio brought  suit to collect $120 'alleged to be due for  services rendered as timekeeper and storekeeper for Little. The plaintiff is tlie  wife of an Italian who had. a position as  boss of a gang for Little. Haunington  for plaintiff and Macdonald fbr the defendant.  The last case to be called before the  adjournment of the court yesterday was  that of R. Hunnex vs. W. K. Collet.  Himnex is a merchant of Erie, and  brought the action to. collect on an account for goods supplied to Collet. The  defendant admitted the receipt of the  goods, but claimed that they were purchased on an order given by Frank Lavin  and held that Lavin ought to be held responsible for payment of the goods.  Judge Forin leaves for Rossland this  morning where he will hold court for  some  time.   '��� "'  The Debt Paid Off.  Two years ago the ladies' aid society of  the Presbyterian church assumed an indebtedness of $1100 incurred in purchasing two lots adjoining the church, which  were to be the location of the manse. The  debt is now paid, the last payment being  made with the receipts of the bazaar  which has been in progress for the past  two days.- The total receipts of the fair  amounted to .$400. The ladies Svho have  had the bazaar'in charge desire to thank  the public for their generous patronage.  Almost"the entire amount dfygoods which  were offered for sale have been disposed  of.

The best evidence that a newspaper is  a good medium in which to advertise is  the appearance in its columns every day  of live advertisements of local merchants  and business men.
