 >  ty  '.  i-  HOW BULLER LOST HJS GUNS  In Friday's Engagement.  (JiUEVKLY Camp, Natal, Friday, Dccembei* 15.���Tlie relief column continued its  advance from Chievely today, intending  to assail the Boer positions, which were  known to be very strong to the westward  and nortwest of Coienso.  During the two  preceding days tho Boers  had allowed  themselves to be bombarded without condescending to  reply with  a single shot.  They further gave half an hour's opening  this morning, without an exchange, when  suddenly they botched  out a  stream   of  fire from all their entrenchments, besides  opening   a   fearful   cannonade  with  all  their quick fire guns, field and siege guns  which were posted from  end  to  end  of  tlieir positions.  When their presence and  actual positions had been determined, the  British naval brigade commenced shelling all the ridges north of the town with  marvellous accuracy.  At this time the artillery attached to  general Hart's division was busy among  tho entrenchments on the hills on the !  British left, under cover of which the  Irish infantry brigade marched out in extended order, to cross the river and attack. Undoubtedly aiming at the battery, the Boers sent several shells near  the ambulance train, which was forced  to change its position. While this was  transpiring, the field artillery on the  right were busy shelling the ridges of  the Boer left flank, their excellent practice attracting the attention of the Boers  who retaliated with a scathiug fire almost demolishing all the guns and stampeding the gun carriage horses.  London, December 20.���Special reports  regarding the lighting at the Tugela river  are still filtering in, but all the newspapers complain tliat these reports are severely censored and it i.s still- impossible  to get an accurate idea of the battle.  From the latest accounts, however, it appears that general Buller was iu personal  command. Much, anxiety is cause'd by  the fact that the war office has not yet  received a full list of tho casualties, at  Tugela river.  London, December 20.���The Standard  hints editorially this morning that if  Portugal continues to allow supplies of  war material and foreign volunteers to  reach tho Transvaal through Delagoa  Bay, England will have something to say  in the matter.  London, December 20.���Statements are  published from Boer sources in Brussels  ami Berlin,* that president Kruger is  * willing to secure peace on the basis of tho  status quo, but that otherwise he will  call upon the Boer.*, in Cape Colony to  join in proclaiming the independence of  tho Cape territories of Great Britain.' >  Bi.ri.in-,-December -19.r-l*_n��perdr--Wil���  Ham is said to exhibit; the keenest personal concern regarding the war in ,South  Africa, especially as to the fate of the  British troops. Each day lie receives  dispatches showing the latest losses, and  these he communicates to the German  prince, who, like himself, lias blood ties  with England.  Madrid, December 10.-���Tlie Spanish  steamer Gindad de Cadiz, which lias just  arrived at Los Palmas, Canary Islands,  from Cadiz, reports that she was pursued  and overhauled last Saturday by a British cruiser, which compelled her to heave  to, interrogated her as to name and  route and then'allowed her to go.  St. ,fouN\s, Newfoundland, December  li).-���Governor MeCalhun, who is a colonel  in the Royal Engineers, has telegraphed  tho British war office offering to resign  his position and undertake any duty  assigned him in South Africa. Captain  Timmis, of the Liverpool regiment, gov-  ~e_,n~or~MeCall urn's- pri vate_seercta ry ��� has  been called to England to join his regiment, and will leave by tho first steamer.  London, December 1!).���"Bobs," as lord  Hoberts of Kandahar is familiarly known,  i.s a name to conjure with in Great Brit-'  ain, and that lord Roberts and lord'  Kitchener are considered the right men  to, relieve the disastrous situation iir  .South Africa is amply evidenced by the  more cheery tone of all war discussion  this morning. Jn spite of tho attempts  of the authorities to gloss over tho .supersession of general Buller, the fact remains  that the appointments cannot now be regarded otherwise than as a penalty for  his failure.  ^*_.'���/"*���"  -*���*���, 7  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.

Russia is on the'pointof  taking possession of Persia and will do so.  unless Great Britain interferes  and it is  strongly suspected that she wants India.,  All the powers have got concessions m-  China nnd to.dismember it aro are doing  what they call 'extending their sphere of  usefulness.'  "The powers would at* one time- have  divided up "South America if it had not  been for the Monroe doctrine. But England aud the United States do not want  the dismemberment of China. They are  deeply interested in the trade of that  country. They would prefer the whole  of China to bo open, rather than have  some of its ports closed.  "Our market is in north China, and if  Russia extends her possessions there it  would be a problem whether or not we a re  to be excluded. We should prefer to have  the influence of England and this country  -throwu-in the-direction of-open-inarkets���  China is iu just the position that Turkey  was. If it had not been for the great  powers Turkey would have been carved  up long ago.  "The great powers may go on just as  they have if tlie government at Pekin can  hold on, but that government is so con-,  temptuously.weak that it is always offering something for help. But the greatest  security against the dismemberment of  China is that the great powers can not  agree upon the terms of division. Por  the nonce things are likely to go along as  they are now, but ultimately a dismemberment is not improbable."  Canadian News in Brief.

The small  cities and   towns  aud  agiieultural and mining district- have an  aggregate  population   of   about   7-**,000.  Were this population given a representative  for every  .3000   of  population,  no  .section of the province would be without  representation, and no section would bo j  over-represented.

Tin.! mooting of tlio Conservative  Association of Nelson, which was held in  the boai-cl,of tirade room last evening, was  well attended. W. A. Macdonald was  palled to the chair and G-. M. Brydges  acteil as secretary. The chief object of  the meeting was to make arrangements  for the reception of sir Charles Tupper  during his visit; to the city next Aveek.  Tlie general opinion of tlio meeting was  that the leader of the party should be  received in proper style, and on motion  ���of J. H. Bowes seconded by 1). M. Carley  a resolution was carried reciting thatthe  Conservatives of Nelson retained confi-  ���d.encc in sir Charles as their leader and  -that he be invited to speak in the city  upon the first convenient; date..  The next order of business was the  selection of a reception committee, the  members of which should-have charge of  all matters connected with the leader's  reception. The members selected for this  wore: W. A. Macdonald, D. M. Carley,  .Fred Irvine, John Toye, ... A. Kirkpatrick,  J. E. Amiable, H. R. Cameron. A. Ferland,  .1. If. Bowes and A. G. Gamble.  A committee was then formed to draft  an address of welcome to the visitor, P.  M. Carley, 11. W. Ilanningtou and ,T. II.  Howes being named upon it. ��  A committee, composed of 11. Thompson, V. .1. Bradley. .1. 10. Amiable, .). Mil-  ward and \V. W. Hen ton, was  appointed  to  take  in  hand   the  decoration of the  opera house.  The members of the association also  put themselves upon record in a resolution approving of a convention of Conservatives of the electoral district of  Yale-Cariboo. The idea was merely to  set the ball rolling so that the provincial  organization of the party can take the  matter up and carry the convention project through to a successful issue.  A committee composed of Fred Irvine,  J. A. Kirkpatrick, J. E. Amiable and H.  It. Cameron was appointed to look after  the linanei.al part of the reception of sir  Charles Tupper.  A vote of thanks was moved to Fred J.  Starkey for past services as secretary.  A meeting of the local association will  be held during January for the election  of officers for 1900.
