When a prominent Conservative  came  foi,* ward the other day and offered to bet  a large sum  of money on majorities in  Winnipeg it looked as  if  the betting on  the contest would be about as lively as it  was when Joseph Martin and-Hugh* John  Macdonald contested the seat in   1890 for  the Dominion house.    On that occasion it  is estimated $75,000 changed hands in the  city of Winnipeg alone, but it is now almost certain that the betting on the present campaign will   be  very  light  unless  the Conservatives are  given   very heavy  odds.    The promptness   with  which   tiie  speculative Conservative's offer was taken  up took the  heart  out of  him, and now  several Liberal offers  of different  kinds  are.staring the other side in the face.    It  is said tliat  a syndicate  of   grain   men  have announced their willingness to stake  $10,000 against  $7:500  that tlie  goveriiiuent will be returned, but  there are no  takers.  While all the betting talk is being done  in Winnipeg, the talk which is calculated  to win the election is being done in the  country constituencies. G. E. Foster arrived and opened his progaammeat Winnipeg on the 28th of last month, after  which he was to storm the principal agricultural districts up to the day of the  election. Sir Charles Tupper, also spoke  atEmerson on the28th, and intended to  deliver himself all the way down the line  to Winnipeg.  One peculiar feature of the campaign  is the inactivity of-Hugh John Macdonald, the opposition leader. He is seldom  heard from, and when he does put in an  appearance he proves a sad disappointment. He seems to have lost his grip or  to-be kept in the background for some  reason or other. The members and followers of.the. government,are taking care  of.their own campaign and are being en-  , thusiasticallyy received every where they  appear. The nominations take place  next Thursday, when.-.'it is expected the  opposition will allow, at least half a dozen,  seats to go,by acclamation. Polling takes  place oue week.latei*.  He Will Likely Resign.  Montr--Ai., December 1,���LaPatre, Mr.  Tarte's orgau, says : "A Conservative of  good authority asserts that if sir Charles  Tupper does uot succeed in defeating the  Greenway government in Manitoba, he  will resign,the leadership of the Dominion opposition.

Lord   Pauncefote  made the protest to the state department.    After discussing the matter some  time the secretary of state referred lord  Pauncefote to the secretary of war. with  whom   the  ambassador also  had a conference.    It is no longer a secret that expeditions of   importance   are being organized.    The most notable of tliese  has  its  headquarters in   the, suburbs of this  city.     Another   will  be'equipped*-'with  funds today in   New York  City.   . Both  these organizations are said to have common backing under the secret auspices of  the agent of the Transvaal  now in  New  "fork.    It is  understood  that  there are  unlimited  mines  of  Dutch  and  French  money behiud these filibustering expeditions.     The state department, war department and treasury department have  informed  the  British   ambassador  that  every precaution will be taken to*, pre-.  . vent the sailing of armed  expeditions in  the interestof the Transvaal.

Victoria, December I.���The full court  gave judgment today in one of the Point  Ellice bridge suits, this appeal having  been held over pending the decision by  the privy council ou cases heard earlier.

Montreal, December 1.���The Monde  Caiiadieime, a French Conservative  weekly, says this week: "Wo are given  assurance that Mr. Tarte will give up his  portfolio at an early date on account of  his health. His friends, 'tho enemies,' rejoice greatly over the news and are  already preparing for the election of  Bayniond Prefontain, mayor of Montreal,  as his succe.ssor."   Triumph of a System.  London, December 1.���The right Hon.  James Louther, addressing the Ginicrack  Club this evening, in response to the  toast, "The Jockey Club," said *' that the  year now closing had witnessed a remarkable success for the trans-Atlantic -system of riding; but he regarded the result  as a triumph of the system, not a triumph of individual jockeys.  A Toronto Man Got the Position.  Toronto, December ].���John Thompson, assistant fire chief, connected with  the department for the last 23 years, has  been appointed chief in place of Graham.  It will be remembered a few weeks ago  the attempt was being made to have  colonel Otter appointed to the position,  but this movement fell through.  Canals Closed for the Winter.

Montreal,   December'- >1.���The   combination of American  capitalists, known  as the Buffalo Syndicate, and- headed by  W. J. Connors of that city, today received favorable consideration at the  hands  of the Montreal   harbor commissioners,  when they formulated theiiv plan for the  extension  of. the   trade  of the   port of  Montreal.   The proposition was made in  response to a  request from the  harbor  commission that those desirous of  building elevators, etc., on the new wharves  should     lay   their    plans   "before    the  board.      Five    applications    were     received,  that jof   the   Connor  syndicate  beiug    the    most    important.       They  asked for twelve hundred feet of land at  Windmill  Point,  with  the  privilege  of  using the canal without interfering with  othei s.      They     would     spend     about  .$1,000,000 and wanted a lease for at least  forty years,  and   would  start  work  at  Windmill Point at once, to be  ready for  freight next spring. The syndicate would  build fifteen tows and steam barges. The,  syndicate   agrees   to   bring    25,000,000.  bushels of grain to Montreal next season,  increasing it in 1901 to #5,000,000 or more.  Tlie board accepted the proposition, and  fixed next Monday morning for a  meeting    with   the   representatives   of    the  syndicate to agree on. necessary details  and locations of elevators.  Police Force to be Raorginizsd.  Victoria, December 1.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���The resignation of chief of  police Sheppard, in advance of an adverse report by the commissioners on the  charge made by constables that Sheppard  knew and heeded not the report of his  chief sergeant's habitual drunkenness,  brings the reorganization of the police  force in prospect, and bodes ill for the  law-breakers, wlio for substantial reasons  think themselves solid with the police.  There are already many applicants for  the position. The commissioners in making their choice will have it understood  _that_VictoriaJs_no Ionger__to_be a _wide  open towu.

Washington, December 1.���At a conference of Republicans tonight it was decided that the eligibility of represeu-  tative-elect Roberts of Utah, who is accused of practising polygamy, to occupy  a scat in the house should be investigated, and pending the investigation he  should not be permitted to take tho oath  of ollice. When Roberts appears ut the  bar of the house to take the oath, objection is to be made upon the ground  that he is ineligible, and a committee of  investigation will be asked for.  Hanna to Retire.  Clevklano, December 1.���-It can be  stated on the authority of senator Jlan-  na's most intimate friends that he has no  desire to manage another Republican  presidential campaign, and that he will,  in ail probability, decline to do so. Senator Hanna is to retire from the chairmanship of the national committee on  account of his health, and will announce  this in good time. His retirement will be  voluntary, and not the result of any lack  of confidence in him on the part of the  president.     ^   Filipinos Suryeiidenng.

Cairo, December J.���Officers from the  Soudan who have arrived here say that  general Win gate's force overtook the.  khalifa. The latter tried to outflank the  Anglo-Egyptians, but failed. Seeing his  position was hopeless, the khalifa told  his emirs to stay with him and die. He  then spread a sheepskin on the ground,  with the emirs on either side of him.  The khalifa was found shot through the  head, heart, arms and legs, and the emirs  were lying beside him. The members of  his body guard were all dead iu front of  them,���General -Wingate's���force���swept  over them without recognizing the  khalifa and his emirs, but they were  identified later. The khalifa is described  as of medium height, stout, of light  brown color and wearing a long grey  beard.  THE .QUAERE*.; EITTER:  French Press Utterances.  Paris, December 1.���The Journal De-  bafcs says it doubts the existence of an  Anglo-German agreement as Mr. Chamberlain asserted, and adds that it would  be cruel and indecent upon the part of  emperor William to accept the acclamations of tlie Dutch and visit their (|iieen,  if lie really signed what is tantamount to  the death decree of the two South African  republics. Emperor William's visit to  Holland must mean that he has not token  such an irrevocable step." The Liberte  takes the matter more seriously, and  urges France to seek alliances, " in view  of a certain eventuality in perhaps the  near future."   Question,  To the K.-itor of Tlie Tribune  Would jou kiiulli miMvur  ;s Bbr,i_in,;. December    1.���Berliners   are  |still agog over the bitter quarrel between  the emperor and the municipal  authorities.    The council appealed a decree issued by the police forbidding them to erect  a walled enclosurewith an inscription in  memory of the victories in the  uprising  of 1848.     The council in turn has appealed to the.administrative court whieli will  try the case December 14th.   The emper-  -or has made up his mind, it is said in  court   circles,   that   if   the   decision   is  against the council, he will confirm  the  election of mayor  Von Kirschner, who  has    patiently    awaited   the    imperial  pleasure since July of last yeai'.    On the  -other, hand, if  the decision,, favors the  city, his "majesty, so the story  goes, will  'continue to-withhold his confirmation.  ���the empress, has gone on leave .to .

The annual collection for the benefit  of the General hospital will be taken up  in all the churches of the city tomorrow.  A special service will be held in the  Methodist church'in the evening devoted  to this cause. In the morning at the  Methodist church there will be a reception service, at which about twenty-five  applicants will be received into membership of the church. At the close of the  service the sacrament of the Lord's  Supper will be observed. Rev. John  Robson, the pastor, will deliver a .ermon  on the subject, "The Kingdom of God."

He is no longer regarded as  a hero.  One Closed, Others Working.  Advices from the Whitewater section  of the Slocan are that work has been entirely ���.impended on the Whitewater  mine, and that work on the Whitewater  Deep is reported as about to be resumed  forthe winter.

December 1.���Negotiations are  about to be opened with the view of  allowing Brazil a reduction of about ten  francs on the tax on coffee on condition  that the French products shall be given  the most favorable national treatment.  Should the negotiations fail, the maximum tariff will be applied to Brazilian  coffee.    THAT  ANGLO-SAXON  ALLIANCE  The German Press Do Not Like it.  Br hi. in, December 1.��� The 11.se  of  the  word   "alliance"   in   Mr.   Chamberlain's  speech at Leicester has caused  a general  flutter in the German press.    The  Chauvinist organs  protest  vigorously.     The  Skreuse Zeitung, the orgau  of the  military party, comments with scorn and indignation.    The other journals, including  the Lokal An/eiger, assert that the meeting of count Von Bulow and  Mr. Chamberlain in London was  productive of results calculated to smooth away some of  the difficulties which had  arisen on colonial questions, but that no alliance exists, although the   conference   between  the   German   and British  statesmen  at  Windsor Castle left an equally good impression on all.    As bearing  upon  this,  the Lokal  Ansseiger  adds:      "Germany  and  Great  Britain  are   guided  by  the  same sincere wish to move in  a   friendly  manner in occasional subordinate difference-'.   At tlie .same time, Germany does  not intend to fight other people's battles."  The VoSpSJsehe Zietung say.s:    "We also  wish to see  Germany, Great Britain and  the United States cooperating 'in., all the  essential questions of the -world's policy."  speaking at Edinburgh this*, evening, dc  precated Mr. Chamberlain's reference to  France in his speech at Leicester, and  said: '"We have no right to go into the  gutters to fish up the derelict press  of any country, and to hold it up to  scorn or as a motive of our policy. It is  impossiBle that the queen could be besmirched by Mich attacks, which only recoil 011 tlie attackers; and whatever the  degraded outburst may mean it does not  represent the best or highest opinions of  France. We have been ever ready to  flount other nations, and it is no woudei  tliat Great Britain is unpopular abroad,  J trust that this undiplomatic frankness  will cease, for those .stinging words  1 ankle long afterward, and it is not for  statesmen to speak under the parsing  excitement of the moment."  LARGE SUMS OF MONEY PAID OUT  In Nelson for Slocan Claims.  Vesterday Ernest Mansfield made the  second payment of $2500 on the A flex  group. This was bonded about six weeks  ago from W. K. Boie of Slocan City for  $30,000 to Rene Laudi of London, .$1,500  being paid at the time. This makes $4000  already paid on this group through the-  Bank of British Columbia. Mr. Mansfield  leaves today for the camp, and whilst  there will probably arrange for a discount  from Mr. Boie, providing the bond ib lifted before the specified time.  There arc already about 2.*i  men working on the Trend well mines and the Apex  group, aud as soon  as.  more  can be  employed tliey will be put on   immediately.  A deal of considerable importance was  put through the Bank of British Columbia yesterday.    It concerned the properties Tread well  and  John A., which were  bonded by Kincst Mansfield from Charles  Plowman  for $20,000  to   Bene  Laudi of  London, England.     This  deal  was only  .entered into on  Mr.  Mansfield's  return  from England a few  weeks ago, and the  bond stood for eighteen  months, with a  discount clause providing for earlier  .settlement if the purchasers desired to avail  themselves of the concession.    Yesterday  the purchasers forwarded the  money by  cable, which   was   placed in   the   bank"  when the owner surrendered  hi9  bill of  sale   and    accepted    the   $10,000   cash,  which with other payments already made  to Mr. Plowman brings  the total  up   in  the region of $23,000.  This is one of the smartest deals put  through and reflects credit on Mr. Mansfield and his associates in London and  Paris for the prompt and. successful way  they have handled the matter, especially  when it is considered that it is barely  more than six weeks ago since the bond -  was entered into, and eighteen months*,  was to run before a final settlement.  The properties are situated at Camp  Mansfield, aud adjoin the Joker group,of  which so much has beeu said concerning   -  it; and independent experts,  other than  those interested, are unanimous in opinion  that this new district is destined  to'be-  come  one. of the greatest  producers  of  ��  ore   in    the   Kootenays.      Appearances,  seem to justify this opinion.     We  wish-'  Mr.  Plewmau and others that are  interested with him good luck, and hope their  next venture will be equally successful.

A Big Deal Closed.  t'lanbrotik IIurAld.  The largest mining deal ever consummated in this district, witli one exception, was closed up this morning at the  Canadian Bank of Commerce, when J. C.  Drewery Paid over $75,300 to the late  owners of the Lake Shore properties, the  balance of $82,000, the total consideration. C. C. Farrel, Thomas* Knder and  .John Day of Moyie were present, with  J. C. Drewry. On the whole payment,  the division of interests was aa follows:  C. C. Farreil, $20,000; Thomas Uuder,  $20,000; Martin Foley, .$20,000. T. R  Murphy, $11,000; John Day,' $11,000.  This closes up the deal, and places in the  hands of men who worked long and hard  to develop their property, a magnificent  reward for the sacrifices made .and hardships endured.

Mr. Johnson .says his  smelter will be ready lo treat ore in  about two months; that the foundations  for the plant are completed, and that the  installation ol machinery will be commenced in a few- days. Mr. Johnson  seems to have a high opinion of the future of the Boundary as a mining  country.  The Victoria Bridge Reopened.  Mo.vn'i.A!., December 1.���New Victoria  bridge, or really the reconstructed old  structure, was formally opened for pedestrian aud vehicle traffic thi-s morning. A  toll if, levied on all traffic from five centa  up to seventy-five cents, according to the  nature of the traffic.  m  fit  !*M  re I  n  pi  -i  1 THE  TRIBUNE:  NELSON, B. C.  SATURDAY.

My store is classed   fifth in Canada.     It is a credit to Nelson.     Nelson has a population of  about 5000.     It is proved by our neighbors that they have taken catalogues from  Birks of  Montreal,  and  Ryrie   Bros, of Toronto.    They have  received   10   per cent off on every dollar,  less than   Birks  and  Ryrie quote from their catalogues.     No favors are asked  from  the people of Kootenay,  but buy your  goods in  British Columbia instead of sending  vour money out and paying more for your goods.  Remember I  have the goods to select from,  and you can satisfy yourself without going elsewhere out of the province.     My goods are bought direct from'the manufacturers, and are sold for small profits.  We want our monev kept in  the country.

It is claimed that the local officials  in the province are not to blame, as their  recommendations are ignored until the  people interested make a vigorous kick  to the department direct through their  member.    The kick has been registered.  With the Hall Mines, the Trail, the  Grand Forks and the Greenwood smelters  in full operation, every ton of ore mined  in southeastern- British Colombia should  be smelted ��Vt home, which would give  the province the full -benefit that should  aec'rue- to its people from the. working of  Oxk of tiie most bitter fights that ev-'*t*  took place between a corporation and* its  employees is the one tit Loudon, Ontario,  between-the street railway company and  its former employees.

G. W. Steevens' fourth war letter in
the London Daily Mail is dated Aliwal
North, October 15th,'and reads thus:
■'Halt! Who goes there?" The trim
figure, black in the moonlight.in breeches
and putties, with a broad-brimmed hat
looped up at the side, brought up his carbine and barred the entrance to the
bridge. Twenty yards beyond a second
trim black figure with a carbine stamped
to and fro over the planking. They were
of the Cape Police, and there were four
more of them somewhere in reserve;
across the bridge was the Orange Free
.State: behind us was the little frontier
town of Aliwal North, and these were its
sole garrison.
The river shone silvery under its high
banks. Beyond it, in tlie enemy's country, the veldt, too, wtis silvered over with
moonlight aud blotted itikily with shadows from the kopjes. Three miles to the
right over a rise and down a dip they
stiid there lay the Rouxvillc commando
of 8:*50 men. That night they were to receive 700 or S00 more from Smithfield,
and thereon would ride through Aliwal
on the way to eat up the British half-
battalion at Stormberg. On our side of
the bridge slouched a score of Boers—
waiting, they said, to join and conduct
their kinsmen. In the very middle of
these—an island of garish naphtha light
in the silver, a jar of wheeze and squeak
in the swishing of trees and river—
twirled a battered merry-go-
Up the hill, through the town,
in the bar of the ultra-English
hotel proceeded this dialogue:
A fat man (thunderously,
nursing a Lee-Metford sporting
rifle)—Well, you've yourselves to
blame. I've done my best. With
fifty men I'd have held this place
against a thousand Boers, and
not ten men'd join.
A thin-faced man (piping)—We
haven't got the rifles.. Every
Dutchman's armed, and how
many rifles will you find among
the English ?
Eat man (shooting home bolt
of Lee-Metford) — And who's
fault's that? I've left my property in the Free State, and odds
are I shall lose every penny I've
got—What part,1? All over—and
come here onto British soil, and
what do I find?   With fifty'.men
■I'd hold this place

All—Success to the British arms !
Thick-set man—And where are the
British arms? Where's the army corps?
Has a man of that army corps left
England? .Shilly-shally, as usual. South
Africa's no place for an Englishman to
live in. Armored train blown up, Mafeking cut off, Kimberley in danger, and
general Buller—what? O, yes, general
Buller leaves England today. Why didna
they send the Army Corps out three

months ago, too?

Brown-faced man (quietly)—Yes. Gentlemen, bedtime! As Brand used to
say: "Alz ;.l rijht koinen ! "

in British Columbia. Had five years' experience with Chinese in British Columbia

Chinese helpers, and he had never heard
any complaint against Chinese. They a I!
understood directions and \vvie safe.
ITe always had confidence in
Chinese. It      was      not      necessary
for miners to be able to read
so long iis they understood directions.
Joseph Iteiiiikli, the next witness, had
been coal mining six years, and had four
years' experience with Chinese at Wellington and Kxtension. They were safe.
Did not think it cut any figure whether
Chinese read the rules or not. lie thought
Chinese miners as safe as- the rest of
them. He was fire boss at Kxtension. It
was not necessary for persons underground to be able to road if they understood the rules.
"William Jackson and William lloggan
had employed Chinese helpers at Wellington and Extension and found them perfectly safe and able to understand and
carry out directions, lias seen no cause
of complaint.
Tho collieries'then called a-number of
Chinese employed in the Extension mine
to show their knowledge of the working
of mines and danger signals. Mar Von,
the lirst witness, furnished some amusement on his cross-examination by the attorney-general. He thought it was not
necessary for Chinese to read the special
rules and they would be  safer than law--

It is a shame to smile at,them. They
are really very, very loyal and they are
excellent fellows, and most desirable-colonists. Aliwal is a nest of green on the
yellow veldt, speckless, well-furnished'
with Marechal Niel roses growing over
trellises, and a scheme to dam the Orange
Jtiver for water supply, and electric light.
They were quite unprotected, tind tlieir
position was certainly humiliating. But
seeing that it could not be helped unless
Britain is to keep a standing garrison of
80,000 men in South Africa—seeing, also,
that the Boers hold themselves the ruling
and fighting, Knglishmen the money-
niaking, and talking race—it would perhaps be rather better if colonial Englishmen used the rifle a little more and the
tongue a little less.

From tlie evidence given before the

it would appear that the white miners-

U.Kenry announced, today that he had
definitely decided to oiler liimself as a
candidate for the mayoralty at the forthcoming municipal elections, and will publish his address to the electors in a day or
two. Mayor Oven-*, some time ago, announced that lie would try for a third
term.' There was a persistent rumor that
one of the aldermen would be asked to
run, but, whether this will be done, will
not probably be known for a day or two.
At all events, citizens are assured of
some fun for their money, so to speak,
and interest in the contest for the chief
magistracy will be none the less from tin*
fact that Messrs. Keary and Ovens havo
met before in the civic political ring.
(Denver Mining HeportoiU
A great many mining ventures through
which outside investors have lost money
have been failures of legitimate propositions, made such by bad management,
but without any original intention on the
part of the promoters than to do else
than make them profitable to all concerned. The causes which made impossible
the success of such stock propositions are
not far to seek.
First, too high a valuation upon the
property used as a basis of the proposition, or rather too large an amount of
stock issued in payment for the propertv,
leaving .so little stock in the treasury that
its sale will not provide sufficient money
to develop the claim into a mine.
The amount of stock issued in payment
for a mining claim should not be more
than the actual cash value of the claim
would buy at the price nt which stock is
to put upon the market.
If the mining claim   is  worth  $10,000
and the company is capitalized at .$1,000,-
000, and  it is  proposed to  market the
treasury stock at 5  cents,  the  promoter
should take 200,000 shares  of stock and
put 800,000 in the treasury; tiny amount
above this to which the promoter  is  entitled on  account  of services should be
paid from the sale of treasury stock, and
the  promoter,  as the  representative  of
the company, should deal with himself as
if he were  a,  stranger.    In the  example
just given it is proposed to sell the
treasury stock at 5 cents per share;
if all of  the  stock  were .sold  at
that   price   the   proceeds    would
amount   to $50,000.    A company
then   with   stock   worth   $50,000
takes $10,000  worth of its  stock,
or 200,000 shares, and with it buys
a  mine worth$10,000.     Thus   far
the promoter has not parted with
any property, as his 200,000 shares
of  stock absolutely    control   the
property  so  long  as  the balance
of the stock remains in the treasury. .-.
Only as stock is sold from the
treasury, do others, as stockholders, acquire the right to be
heard iu control of the property.
When 200,000 shares of treasury
stock have been sold the other
stockholders are on equal terms
with the promoter. Why should
they not be ? Jn every respect, except personal liability, the stockholders should be partners in pro-
pot tion to their contribution to
the corporate fund.
The usual plan, and tlie plan
which leads to ml. many disasteis,
is for the piomoter to* eon tribute
a mining claim worth $10,000 or
less and take from 000,000 to S00,-
000 skates of stock, the equivalent
01 fi om $.'*5.000 to $40,000.
Now lie attempts to sell treasury
stock iu Older to niise money to
develop the pioperty. The shrewd
investor quickly discovers tjiat
tiie sale of the whole 200,000 shares
in the treasury will pioditcebut
$10,000, out of which must come
commission-**, and that the balance, if honestly spent, i.s barely
enough, possibly notenough, to do
the lequiied woik to make this
piospcct into a mine.
Then again he concludes that
the promoter who has shown him-
=elf dishonest enough to sell a
$10,000 ptospect to his own ptos-
pective paitneis for $10,000 i*.
hardly a safe man to trust to
spend the ptoceed-. of the --tile
of the treasuiy stock, and he in- j
vests el-ewlieio. Thi*. stock must I
be sold, if at all, to the inexper- j
ienced or the mis-informed. A value '
of $10,000 must be lied into the |
prospect. The promoter, no mat- |
what his original intention, must >
now decei.e in order to induce
co-operation. Instead of representing tho actual merit., of the
property, he must now put into it
:\ fictitious value. This he usually does b>
assays of picked ..specimens or. by its
alleged proximity to some well known
producer. No matter what deception is
practiced nothing but a miracle can save
n proposition thus robbed at its inception..

Julian Ralph, the well-known United  States journalist, now a coi respondent in  South Africa of the London Daily Mail.  thus describes the Boei'*- home and family in the authority of one who lias long  lived among them,    lie says:  Would you like metodcseiibe a Ttans-  vaat Boer home and family?    Very well,  J know them neaily all, and have stopped  with score*, of them, foi they aie kindly  and hospitable, except  when  their  animosities are aioused     A Boer house is a  building made of brick and  roofed  with  /inc.   It is divided into two room5., with  a wing: or lean-to at the back.    That  wing is the kitchen uheic the Kaflli gill  works.     The other  two  rooms  aie the  bed room   and   the   eating-room.     The  floor of~all the rooms is made  of���ant-hill  earth stamped down  and  painted  over  with diluted cow-dung, sometime*" mixed  ���\\ ith blood.   This gives the floor a glossy-  green sin face.   The sleeping-ioom h.is as  many beds as are  requited���usually  one  for the man and   wife, and another for  the childit'ii.     Often  you  will see the  children's bed pushed under  that  of the  paients.     The   eating-room   contains  a  long table .tnd  some  chairs,  seated  and  backed  with   sttips  of  leather.     TlVio  will   be another smaller  table,  covered  with   Ameiican   oilcloth,  on  whieli   tho  frau keeps a white gla-s sugar-dish,  and  perhaps a gi ecu glass spoon jar &tu'h as  are given away with a pound of tea at  home. These and some litogiaphs, pinned  up without finines, fire  the  only  ornament-*., and a-.ort of bettee with  a scat  made   of   leather   stiips   completes  the  furnituie. Alt' the people cleanly?  Well,  they are apt to wipe the plates and  the  baby'-- face at tlie  same  time and  with  the same cloth, aud after you have eaten  your corn porndge and  dued   beef and  sweetcake the wife will eat heis off your j  dirty plate.    Some women will tuin your  plate upside down and eat off the bottom,  but that is consider" d putting  on  style.  There may be a harmonium in the comer  of the room,  and  if you ciui   play  any  simple  little tune-, the -whole family will  dance as long as you  like   to  play.    For  ��� books there is cei tain to be it Bible,  and  thete will be a piayer book  if  they can  afford it.    They ate lebgious, you know :  that is, they go tt) chinch  and   aie  hind  of thinking themsehos m God's keeping,  but they never let religion tnteifeie with  * business.     At a  horse  tiade  they  will  cheat the back teeth out of your head.  yon have heaid that they sloep m  their clothes? Well, the man takes oil  his eoat and waistcoat, and sleeps in  the rest that ho has  on.   The wife drops  off an outer ski it', peihaps, befoie she  gets into bed. Of late ovtia looms have  been added to the houses of the better  class Boers; but iu the old style, typical  two loomed house, \vhoe\ei stops overnight must sleep with the old folks or  childien. When you sleep with the  old folks the husband always takes the  middle of the bed. A stoiy which I  know to be tine is told of bishop Mer-  liman. Be was once entertained in  this way, aud when he woke in the  morning he found that the Boer had  inept out to look after his cattle. Jle  gave one glance at his sleeping companion, and dropped out of bed as  quickly as if he had been tin own out.  As to their ablutions, you will Seldom  see a Boer with a clean face. One of  them has written to a Cape Town relative  lhat_hi_>_people w ill _not .wash  until they lm\e tli iven the British into  the sea. That sounds impres-ii.e, but  will not entail much hardship upon his  people.         Four Burglars Sentenced.

In a little Chicago south side flat doth  hang a belt, anil on that belt doth hang  a tale, a Thanksgiving tale of date one  year ago. The occupant and the owner  of the belt is a whilom Dawson City actress of the song and dance variety, who  returned from the Klondike a few weeks  ago. She had her little say in tlie papers  and she told some stories, but .she didn't  ��� tell the one I'm going to relate. Jf yon  were in Dawson yon would know her as  the "Such a Nice Girl Too," of the placards.  She reached Dawson, November Oth,  just two days before the floating ice  jammed and stopped for the winter. The  next night she began singing at the  Monte Carlo Theatre for more money  eacli night than she had ever made in a  week in the states. Peeping through one  of the cracks between the hemlock slabs  that made her dressing room she saw the  great full moon rising over the glistening  snow aiid was tempted. Creeping out  by a side door, she started for a walk  along the-road beside the Yukon toward  Hospital hill.  '���'Hark I' What was that ���* A call? .She  strained her ears and turned toward the  center of the river. Yes, someone was  calling for help, some man, but why? , It  was plain. The man was in a boat away  out in midstream, where the swift current had broken up the ice and started it  down stream. In a few minutes he would  be beyond aid, carried down to the  ,ground by the-iee on-the bluff at Moose-  head creek. =There was no time-to run  for lielp. She started forward, aimlessly,  and. stumbled over'a loose ' rope that had  held a raf L against the bank. . .Seizing it,  she ran out on the free" ice to the edge.  -.She threw the.rope 'across the 20'feet of  floating.ice separating her from the* boat.  A poling hook caught the rope : she snubbed it up around a great cake of ice.  Slowly the boat was hauled shoreAvard  against the grinding ice cakes. He landed at the hospital. Then.he said all sorts  of complimentary things to his female  preserver and introduced himself as "Bill  Staley, sour dough stiff, at your service.*'  ' That was the* beginning of a,romance  that furnished much' gossip for Dawson,  where women are, or wore, scarce and  consequently irresistible. Bill, who was  an old-timer with a claim on French hill,  and who by being rescued was tins last  man to get in from the outside that year,  had a goodly sack of dnsf, and he was  generous with. it. But Bill wanted to elo  for her something out of the way, something that would prove his appreciative  generosity. -,. This is where the belt  comes in. '���  Picking out 200 nuggets, weighing from  THE BANK OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is n,ow prepared -to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Slcaguay, U. S., Atlin,, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yul^ori District.  two to ten pennyweights each, from his  sacks stored iu Ash & Manning's saloon  ho carried them to the one jeweler in'  town.  "Make these into a belt," said Bill.  "Stick 'em on bars as close as they'll go.  Don't mind the weight or the cost. Put  it till down to me."  Bill got the belt the day before Thanksgiving. -'Twas gorgeous and unique.  Nuggets on cross bars, so soldered that  they looked like single nuggets three  inches long by a half wide, spaced a  white ribbon every two inches. No  queen ever had such a belt. But how to  give it to her. Wait till Christmas? Too  long ! Why not take it to her the next  day, Thanksgiving? He would do it,  and���yes���that's the idea���in a tin dish  with a mutton pie crust. This is just  what Bill did. Everything went off according to program. His pie offering  was accepted and he was invited to help  eat it. Laughter bombarded the logs iu  the cabin. The belt so delighted the not  over crazy recipient that she conjured  up a fair imitation of a blush.  If you know the little song and dance  artist,do not ask her about Bill Staley or  the belt. Bill froze to death, on Nigger  .Jim's stampede, and they say in Dawson  she really cried a bit. Only a few know  she has the belt, but those know it is the  most cherished trinket she brought from  the frozen north.  THF   BRITISH   BAYONET,  Toronto Globe.  Owing to the censorship of press messages we may be sure that-the only dispatches on which we can place absolute  reliance, are those given out by the war  department as coming directly from commanders in the field. If, for example,  the forces at Ladysmith. Mafeking anel  Kimberley are confident in being able to  beat off their assailants, those responsible  for the British campaign are quite likely  to let dispatches pass which, if credited  by the Boers, would be quite misleading.  While on the surface it looks as , if Joubert Avas cornering section after section  of the relieving forces as they-move  northward, a correlated set of facts are  very apparent. Tlie attacking ' party  around Ladysmith must be greatly  weakened in ' thus sending' various  .detachments southward, making it  much more feasible for general  White to sally forth and offer battle.  hi the event of a decisive British vic-  tery, the Boer forces south of Ladysmith would be in a,, serious position.  Naturally, a body of mounted Boers is  mobile to it degree, but such a body, accompanied by artillery, ean only proceed  as fast as cannon can be moved. A victory oil thepartofsirGeorgeWhitewould  leave the southern divisions of the Boer  army two alternatives ; either to abandon  their cannon, or face about and join issue  with the forces under sir George. Until  they defeated him they would be cut off  from tlieir supplies, and under such circumstances he would be able to choose  where he should meet them. The present position would in fact, be reversed.  It would be the Boer that would be under  the necessity of moving so as to resume  connection with his supplies.    The other  P. Bums & Co.

RITHET & CO.  -V  Fred J, Squire, Merchant Tailor  FULL LINES OF FALL AND WINTER SUITINGS  WEST BAKER STREET NELSON  OPPOSITE SILVER KING HOTEL  alternative, namely, the abandonment of  his artillery, would be a costly necessity,  for we cannot   believe that  the  enemy  have so  many big  guns  that  they can  afford to lose many.     These are the dangers of general Joubert's plan of campaign.  The battle of Belmont, following  as it  does on   Eland's Laagte, possesses   the  highest interest for military critics.    It  has been said over and over  again in recent times that the day of  the bayonet  was past.    It  has been asserted  that a  charge with the bayonet against an entrenched enemy, armed with the modern  repeating rifle, was an impossibility.  Under   no   circumstances could it   appear  more of an  impossibility than  in  that  wherein Boers, probably the most expert  marksmen in the world, were the defending force.    No  existing army, either in  Europe  or  America, can   compare  with  these Dutch farmers in accuracy of aim,  and but few could exceed  them, or even  equal   them,   in   coolness  and   courage.  Nevertheless, both at Eland's Laagte aud  Belmont   the   British   regulars  charged  and drove the enemy out at the point of  the bayonet.   At Belmont it appears that  three separate ridges' had to be carried in  this way.    The loss, it is true, was large,  but not the  decimation that was  predicted by the military critics.    It shows  that the British bayonet is still  a formidable weapon, and that George, Pat and  Sandy still possess the great  thews and  strong hearts that are necessary to put it  into execution.  Cunning of a Boer Spy.  Here is a story of a Transvaal spy that,  well illustrates the shrewdness and per-  tenacity whieh have made the Boer such  a tactful and able enemy iu the present  war. It was just before the erection of  the Johannesburg forts. The spy was  ordered to report ou the defences of  Chatham. While employed iii collecting  materials he came upon a certain secret  subterrannean passage connecting Fort  Pitt with--somewhere. He tried to find  out where that "somewhere" might be,  but without avail. Rumor said, it was  Fort Clarence. But Fort Clarence was  then���and is now, for that matter���used  as a provost prison, and acce-ss to its  interior was strictly prohibited. One  Avay of getting within : the walls  there was, and the spy took it.  He committed a somewhat serious  offence against military discipline,  for which he was reduced to the  ranks and imprisonment. As he had  foreseen, he was consigned to Fort Clarence. The provost sergeant in charge  kept rabbits, which were shut up at  night, in a sort of underground, -passage  that opened into the moat���at least, so  the other prisoners affirmed. The spy ingratiated himself with the warders,  and after  a week or two he . was  taken  FULL LINE OF  off shot drill and promoted to the post  of rabbit keeper in ordinary to the provost sergeant aforesaid. He looked carefully and conscientiously after his four-  footed, charges. In fact, he spent the  greater part of his time cleaning out and  whitewashing their underground apartments, with the result that on his release  he was able to forward full plans and details to'Pretoria.

W. West & Co.  Kicking Joseph Martin Out.  The Conservative press in the east generally, and the  Montreal Star  and  Toronto   Telegram   in  particular,  are  novy  applauding  our  ex-attorney-general  for  the  course  he  is  pursuing in regard to  Dominion as well  us  provincial   politics.  In a recent issue the Montreal Star says :  The Cornwall Freeholder is an able-bodied  Liberal   journal   that    has  no   use   for  Joseph Martin.    It declares  that  he has  attacked  the government, gone over to  the   enemy's   camp,   and sneeringly  remarks  that  the  Conservatives are welcome to him.    This is  ungrateful as well  as untrue.    While Mr.  Martin is  vigorously criticising the government, he does  so   more    in    sorrow    than   in   auger,  and    maintains    that    his   attitude   is  forced 111.011 him by   the   party leaders'  abnegation of  Liberal   principles whieh  were laid down by the  Ottawa convention of 1803, and that he has not deserted  the party, but that the party has deserted him   and   their   own   platform upon  whieh he is standing, and  for which he  and they made common cause in 1896. Mr.  Martin evidently does  not intend  to be  driven from the party's  ranks, although  his arraignment of the Ottawa cabinet is  the strongest indictment   against  them.  Jf he is read out of the  alleged  Liberal  party it is safe to say that he will not go-  alone, but will be accompanied  by those  Avho hold that promises were made to be  kept and pledges  given  to be redeemed.  The sneers of the paper of the Freeho der  stripe at Mr.  Martin  are a poor reward  for one who has done  much  to bring his  party into office, and whose only crime is  that he yet believes in the platform upon  which  his  party   was   elected,  and   to  which   Liberal     leaders     have    proved  recreant.
