London, December  21.���Letter.'   from  British officers  and   soldiers  lighting in  the Transvaal, and   lengthy descriptions  from war correspondents, tliat filter into  print through the mails, teem with thrilling and pathetic incidents.     Writing to  his mother, a young officer of  the Man-  chestor.9, wounded in one of the  first  engagements, relates that while he  lay on  tho hillside expecting to die, through the  night Avhich had already  fallen, bleeding  from a bad wound in his thigh, and shivering with cold, tliere stumbled over him  a   "Tommy    of    my    company,  named  Hi vers."    "Tommy" quickly whipped off  his own  overcoat, placed  it  around the  hoy officer and laying down, put his arms  around him, and for the rest of that long  cold night kept him warm.  The Times correspondent gives a  graphic account and explanation-'of tho  British disaster at;Nicholson's Nek, where  Carlston's column, consisting of six companies of the Gloucestershire regiment  and No. 10 Mountain battery wore taken  prisoners. "Two hours before daybreak,"  says the correspondent, "while the column  was in closed country, either a shot was  fired, or a boulder rolled into the battery  in column. The mules stampeded, and  easily broke away from their half-asleep  driver. They came back upon the  Gloucestershire regiment, the advance  party of whom fired into the mass believing in the darkness that it was an  attack."  "Thisadded to the chaos, the ranks were  broken by the frieir/.ied animals and they  (lashed through the ranks of the rear,  guard carrying the first and second reserve ammunition animals with them.  It became a hopeless panic, the animals  wild with the shouting and tho turmoil  tore down the Nullah into the darkness  and the last that was heard of them was  the sound of ammunition boxes and panniers as they were splintered against the  boulder*-. The hub-bub of those few  minutes was sufficient to liave alarmed  the enemy. By .strenuous efforts, the officers succeeded in getting the men again  under control. When daylight came  they seized the first position which presented itself and which was about two  mile- short of the original goal. They  were forced to lake advantage of the  lirst kopje as Boer scouts were all around  them and the day .was ushered in with  desultry firing.  It was a sorry position which they had  chosen, -and tho men were in a sorry  plight. All their reserve ammunition  was gone, aud though they" had saved  pieces of the. screw guns, they were not  able with these piece*- to patch up a  single mounting. From earliest daybreak  Boer scouts were reeonnoitering, and  about (3 o'clock Boers eould be -een  galloping in group.*- to the cover at the  reverse of the hill on the west. Later  two strong parties of mounted men took  position on the far side of the two hills  commanding the kopje from the west.  About 9 o'clock tliese two parties had  crossed a hill, and opened a heavy fii'e at  short range, right down tlr*. plateau. Our  men made a plucky attempt to bum this  lire, but it was impossible: they weie  under a cross fire from two direction-.,  (tank and rear. The two companies of  Gloucestershire holding the self-contained  ridge were driven from their shelter and  they crossed tlie open.in the open plateau  and were terribly ma** 'ed', the men falling  iu groups. /  "The Boers on tne west had not declared themselves, but about 200 marksmen climbed to the position which the  two companies of the Gloucestershire had  -just���vacated These men .absolutely.  raked the plateau, and it was then that  the men were ordered to take cover on  the steep reverse of the kopje. As soon  as the enemy realized this move, the men  on the western hill teemed onto the summit and opened on our men as they lay  on the slope. They Avere absolutely  hemmed in and what had commenced as  a skirmish seemed about to become a  butchery,  "The grim order was passed around  Faugh aballagh, fix your  bayonets and  />-  FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER  1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $6 A YEAR; WEEKLY.   $_*.  ion. It is said, that the plumbers and  tinners will also shortly form a union."  The heads of the different local unions  are bending every effort toward the  formation of a Trades and Labor Council  similar to that in liossland. It is  thought, however, that it is rather early  to carry out this idea, at least, not until  the plumbers and tinners have formed a  union; that union formed, and a labor  council would havo representation from  live different bodies. Over in Pluonix  the miners' union is building a hall. It  was hoped to have ' had the same completed before now, but lack of lumber  has retarded the progress of the building. Tho miner..'union in that camp is  also in a nourishing condition. Tt meets  every Tuesday evening.  BULLER'S LOSS KEEPS GROWING A CHARITY  BOARD ORGANIZER  WRECK OF THE ARMORED TRAIN  Caused by Removal of Plates.  London, December 21.���Burleigh, the  Daily Telegraph's war correspondent,  supplies a full account of the annihilation  of the armored train contingent at Chiev-  ley, at whieh Winston Ohurchiil was captured. The train, it appears, with the  exception of tho engine, tender and two  trucks, was badly wrecked by the removal ���  of fish plates, and the 72 men of the Dublin 'Fusileers, and the -12 men of the  Durban light infantry, to say nothing of  live Bluejackets from the Tartar, were  thrown out. Captain Haldimand of the  Gordon Highlanders, who commanded the  party, rallied liis bruised and shaken men,  and amid a hail of bullets from the Boers,  began to clear the line, while the others  were pouring volleys into tho almost unseen Boer*- hidden behind the rocks about  1000 yards oil'. The Bluejackets, bravely  commanded by their petty officer, who  was the incarnation of coolness, got  their seven-pounder into action. They  sent in two, if not three, well-aimed  shells at the Boers, several hundred of  whom lined the hills, but just then a .shot  from the enemy's three-pounder or field  gun hit the small seven-pounder and  knocked gun and carriage into the veldt  and wounded several of the men.  Our wounded were now dotting the  veldt on each side, the continued rifie  lire and the weird sound of "the quick  fire- arms added to the hoi-ro_s<*of the  situation. At last, the line was clear,  and theengino witirone carriage of "the"  unnored'train wa.- enabled to return to  Frere, leaving captain Haldman's party  fiercely engaged. The Boers gave  the train a passing salvo of shells,  hitting the tender and nearly  derailing the train a second time/ At  Frere -Mr. Churchill, despite the entreaties  of the people with him, insisted upon returning to captain Haldimand, who was  an old comrade of his iu the Tiera expedition, and seizing a rifie from one of  the wounded was last seen making his  way across tho veldt. The officer in command of the rear truck reports that Winston Churchill was hit twice in the hand  and in the shoulder.  All of the wounded who were fit to  give any account of the engagement describe Churchill's conduct in ino-t glowing terms. It must have been heroic beyond all ordinary heroism. True to his  character he insisted on wearing the  medals he won as a  soldier.    He   was  It Aggregates Close Upon 1200.  London, December 22. There i.s still  no definite news regarding the military  operations in pSouth Africa. Probably  this is because the only cable that is now  working" is choked with official dispatches.  General Buller's casualty list at Coienso,  just published, shows that 146 were killed  and 740 wounded.. Two hundred and  twenty-seven aro described as missing,  and of these about forty are known'to be  prisoners in the hands of the Boers. This;  makes a total larger than general Buller's  original estimate.  Interest centers for the moment iu the  preparations to send out reihfdrcenients.  The various city guilds have given an additional-��12,000 for the expenses of the  Imperial volunteers, besides gifts /of  horses, ambulances, and.other paraphe-,;  nalia. The liitest notable 'volunteers, include the two nephews of lord Roberts./  major Charles Sherston and.major 'Max*.;*  Avell Sherston. Their brother was killed.',  at Gleneoe. ]',���  The admiralty has decided to dispatch]  another naval brigade of 700 men tp:  South Africa. y  It is believed that in mobilizing the  eighth division the war office will, still  have resource to some extent to'the militia, it being deemed inadvisable to de?  nude the home garrisons over much of  regulars. The chancellor of the. exchequer, sir Michael Hicks-*Beach has issued a denial that any differences exist in  the cabinet regarding .war  expenditures.

THE   MAYORALTY   CONTEST.  b  i *  die like men. There was a clatter of  steel, a moment of suspense and then the  "cease firing" sounded. Again and again  it sounded, but the Irish fusileers were  loath to accept the call, and continued  firing for many minutes. 'Then it was unconditional surrender, and they laid down  their arms."   Famous Conductor Dead.  Pari-?, December 21.���M. Jean Lainc-  roux, the famous  mu*-ical director, died  today after a two days' illness.  Greenwood a Union Town.  C.iti.i_NWOOi>, December 21.���A meeting of tho journeymen tailors* of the  city decided to form a union. Kloven  tailors signed the application for a charter fiom the Journeymen Tailors' L'nion  of America. The meeting elected James  Orany temporary chairman, and Charles  Wilson temporary secretary. When the  charter is received a special meeting will  be called to elect officers. Probably no  town of .similar '-size-in the province can  boast of such a strong following in labor  union, ranks as Greenwood, Both the  miners1' union and the carpenters' union  are strong, healthy and active organizations. All the printers here are members  of the International Typographical Fn-  .begged not _to_wear__them, _and_iL jviiv  pointed out that if he were taken there  would be little chance for him. The one  hope, and it is the view that several of us  who know him well, is that such an extraordinary man will be quite capable of  convincing the Boor leaders that it  would be the best thing for them to release him.  Prisoners Contented and Indifferent.  London, December 21.���The Daily  Graphic's correspondent, describing a visit  to the hulk Penelope at St. Simon's bay.  where the Boer prisoners are confined,  whieh was undertaken iu the company of  colonel Stowe, the United States consul-  general, write*-: "The majority of the  prisoners are sleek, contented aud indifferent. Tliey told me that they thought  tho war would be a picnic and that they  would rush Natal before the imperial  troops arrived. That England would be  involved in foreign complications, and  that they would be able to dictate terms  from Pietermaritzburg and Durban. They  thought to view the (Jape peninsula, conquerors, not fiom a prison ship."  The Sentiment Cheered to the Echo,  To.-:onto, December 21.���At the dinner  ofthe National Club last night Hon. J.  0. Bergeron, M. P., ex-deputy speaker,  paid a tribute to the loyalty of the  French-Canadian*-' and prayed for tlie  glory of Briti-.li arms, and freedom under  British institutions for the people of South  Africa. Hon. G�� W. Boss?, speaking as  premier of Ontario, said Canadians did  not want at this moment to stand upon  parliainentary propriety or procedure,  but wished to say to Britain : " All our  men and all our wealth are at your disposal." "This sentiment was cheered to  the echo.  To thi. EijKCTOKS ok Nklson :  In asking for your support for the  office of mayor at the coming election, it  is only fair that i should state my views,  briefly, on what are considered public  question.*- or issues. No doubt, during  the campaign you will havo au opportunity to hear these questions and issues  discussed, for they are important to the  .people of this municipality.1  1. The public utilities, used, bjrjGhe'city  shouldbe maintained at a~higl_" statcof-  efficiency, and the revenue therefrom  collected closely aud promptly. The rates  should be so adjusted that a fair profit  over and above fixed charges can be  realized, for the city can no more sell  water and light" at cost than can the  merchant the commodities in which he  deals.  2. Direct taxation can only be kept  low by limiting the issue of debentures.  No debentures should be issued except  for the construction of revenue-producing public works-..  3. A beginning should bo made this  year at making permanent street improvements. The main business streets should  be macadamized and the main residence  streets giaded. Sidewalks should be laid  with some uniformity, and not according  to the different ideas of different officials.  I. The steamboat inteiests centered at  Nelson are second only in importance to  the railway interests, aud the city should  _pr_o_vi< I o_modern_ dock_ and__\vare_ho_u.se_fa-_  cilitiesat which this business can be handled. The dock;**, and warehouses should  be built on plans approved by practical  steamboat men, as. the future growth and  prosperity of the city depend, in a great  measure, on the cost of transhipment of  merchandise.  .*). lam opposed to saloon expansion.  There are already a sufficient number of  places in Nelson at which liquor can be  obtained nt retail, and the number should  not be increased until the city has a population .of ten thousand.  (5, Public gambling is looked upon as  an evil in civilized countries, and whilst  gambling cannot be prevented, there is  no good reason why the sound of gambling machinery -ihould equal that from  the team traffic on our main business  thoroughfares.  7. None but general bylaws should be  passed, and when pnwd they .-hould be  enforced.  S. Corporations that have secured  franchises from the city should he made  to live up to the letter nnd the spirit of  tlieir agreements; but in adjusting  differences that may arise there should  not be any unnecessary friction.  0. The fire department should be efficiently maintained. The best apparatus  should be procured, and the number of  men in the volunteer brigade kept at the  maximum, for without men, mere apparatus would be useless in times of  danger. Jon.v IIorsroN.  To Relieve Deserving Cases.  A representative meeting of the cif izens  of Nelson washeld in the city hall yesterday afternoon for the purpose of perfecting  the organization of tho charitable board  which is to take charge of the relief work  iu the city. Among those present were  mayor Neelands, aldermen Beer, Fletcher  and Hillyer, Mrs. W, W. Beer, Mrs. J. L.  Stocks, Mrs. J. R. Robertson, Rev. Robert  Frew. Rev. A. L. Ferland, Rev. C. W.  Rose, Rev. II. S. Akehurst' Rev. D. Lang,  T. J. Sims, E. A. Crease. F. W.. Li ing.  F. M. Chadbourn and J. K. Strachan.  The meeting organized with T. J. Sims  in the chair and J. K. Strachan acting as  secretary when a resolution creating the  charitable society was moved by Rev. II.  S. Akehurst, seconded by alderman  Fletcher, as follows : "That this meeting  resolves itself into >i society to be called  the Nelson Charitable Organization, the  society to be open to all who are willing  toeooperate in the furtherance of the objects of the society, and that an executive  committee be appointed forthwith, with  power*'to' add to its number."  The resolution creating tiie general  board of the society was then moved by  Rev. Robert Frew, seconded by alderman  Fletcher. It was: "That the general  board pf the society consist of one lady  from each of the city churches, one from  tlioi". AVomen's Council, one from the  Ladies' Hospital Aid,'and one from the  Salvation Army, together with the clergy  of the city, the mayor and the city clerk,  a representative from the hospital board,  T. J. Sims and J. IL Bowes."  This resolution was agreed to and the  following were appointed as members of  the board : Mesdames- A. L. McCulloch,  H. R. Bellamy, F_. C. Clarke, J. L. Stocks.,  W. J. Goepel, W. W. Beer, B. C. Miller,  and ensign Leicester, judge Forin, the  clergymen of the several churches, and  mayor .Neelands and city clerk .Strachan.  Mrs. ,.T. L. Stocks reported that the firm  of P. Burns & Co. had expressed a willingness to provide poultry for the Chiist-  mas dinners of any deserving people who  were unable to secure the same themselves. This otter was received with a  vote of thanks from the board, and the  understanding was arrived at that- any  cases coiniugto the.attentiouof members*  of the society should be reported to the  acting secretary.  The .secretary of the board will be the  convenor of the'next meeting, which will  probably be held in the course of a day  or two.   A RECORD   BREAKING SMOKER  for sale and eagerly bought in  at fancy  prices,   the   aforesaid   bottles   of   beer  bringing $'. to S10 per bottle, and  other  goods  in  equal  ratio.     The  Exchequer  .Alining Companj' donated 200  shares  of  stock and this was sold for $2.*.. E. Mansfield, of Camp Mansfield, carried off tho  honor*, in bidding. Mr. Mansfield invested  at  least   $200   in   goods,   largely   of   a  perishable nature, and his purchases were  generously passed through the audience.  The gathering closed  at a late  hour  amid a display of patriotism which will  linger   long in   the   memories  of those  present.    It is difficult to ascertain at the  time of writing as to the amount realized  for the Mansion House fund, but the promoters believe that the final  reckoning  will net the fund from $000 to $800.  THE BATTLE OF ELANDSLAAGT  Not Losing Time on the Way.  Cairo, Dccembei' 21.���When general  Kitchener arrived, in this city he was  given an ovation by lord Cromer, the  British consul-general in Egypt, and  others. He immediately'boarded a train  bound for Alexandria.  In Aid of Mansion House Fund.  The Mansion House smoker at the  opera house last night was a huge success  iu every sense of the expression. Patriotism and good fellowship held high carnival, and the result was a revelation even  to those promoter* of the entertainment  who had been mo*-t sanguine of succcs*-.  Seldom, indeed, has the city of Nelson  witnessed such an outpouring of patriotism as was evidenced last evening, and  result will be a contribution to the fund  foi__the widows a ncLorphans of_tlio��*e who  have given their life-blood in the defence  of tho empire, which will do the first city  of Kootenay infinite credit.  When the curtain rose at the opera  house, every seat was occupied and  -standing room was at a premium.  The audience was in great fettle and  their enthusiasm rose as the agile waiters  circulated through the gathering and the  mist of smoke rose to a cloud. Mayor  Neelands occupied the chair, and  the applause which greeted the opening  selection was only a circumstance to the  manner iu Avhich those who contributed  to the programme were received. Among  those who assisted to.make the affair a  success were: Messrs. Worthington, Marshal!, Thompson. Parry, Leicester, Preiser, Ness, McDonald, Eraser, Harris, McGinn, Caldwell. Wambolt, Haines, Winter, Whalley. Lennie, Hodges, L'nioon,  Procter, Steiner's. orchestra, the Mandolin Quartette, ami a pair of clever boxers.  All the contributions to the programme  were recehed with deafening applause,  and encores were insisted upon in every  instance.  Words fail to adequately describe the  score of incidents which marked the occasion as extraordinary. Patriotic songs  were constantly in demand, and on several occasions the audience insisted on  "Rule Brittania," "Tommy Atkins," and  selections of a similar nature, which were  sung standing amid a scene of wild  excitement. The gentlemen who assisted  in the programme participated in the  general sentiment, and all the familiar  patriotic songs were given with vim.  A feature of the entertainment was the  auction sales with wliich the programme  was interpersed. A variety of articles,  ranging from bottled beer to suits of  clothing and works of art,  were  offered  Described by a Times Correspondent.  London, December 21.���The correspondent of the Times at Ladysmith, describing the battlefield of Elaudslaagt, details  the horrors of war.    He  writes:    "The  battlefield, as  it  stood  on  Sunday, conveyed sufficient pioof of the severity of  the fight.   The men lay there as they had,  fallen, a sad, pathetic tiibute to the courage of Britisli soldiers. Highlanders, Manchester.- and mounted volunteers lay indiscriminately grouped.    The solitary figures under the stones  showed how little  cover   had   availed   them.    There  were  places  where   wire  fences  had impeded  their advance.    Here   the  carnage  had  been gieat, and one brave fellow, stooped  in death, had been cut off as he strove to  wrench a post from its foundation.  We drove back the Boer position. A  little kopje, on which Schiel and his  thirty-three men had made their last attack. The bodies of the fifteen that had  fallen of this little band wore grouped as  death had taken them. Some lay with  their head" sunken upon their rifle locks,  fighting to the end. Another had died  with his fingers pressing a charge into  his magazine. What remained of the  laager was, a litter of shell fire. Wagons  weie splintered and overturned, food  .-tuff, dead horses and explo-ives lay in  wretched profusion. There remained no  doubt that oiu shell fire and played upon the position with full effect,  and one could only marvel  "that,.-the Boers had- stood.- _vto  their guns so long. But as one of the  wounded prisoners told me later in the  day, there was no room to retreat. Extended files of tiie Manchester regiment  overlapped the reverse of the kopje,  sweeping the northern footpath, while  the rain of shrapnel destroyed every  living thing on the western slope. It was  here that the Boers had brought their  dead horses for covering and carcase-*, lay  piled on every side. The slaughter  amongst the horses must almost have  been as heavy as that of the men.  LONDON, December 22, ��� The Daily  Mail says : ������ We understand that news  has arlived from general White to the  effect that Ladysmith is well supplied  with food and ammunition, and can hold  out much longer than has been estimated.  The troom are described as in good  spirits and anxious to fight."  LOCAL   NEWS   IN   BRIEF.   Tlie_announcement_thafc-a second contingent is to be moblzied at once for  service with the Biitish forces operating  in South Africa has created great interest  among the ex-members of the Northwest  mounted police resident in Nelson.

May Make Regular Trips Monday.  A new epoch in the development ofthe  j city was marked yesterday by the starting of the street cars over the Nelson  Tramway Company's recently completed  line.  The event had been looked forward  to with considerable interest by citizens  generally, and the spectacle of the electric trams moving swiftly and smoothly  through   the    principal    thoroughfares  formed  the staple topic of conver=ation  all along the route.  The operations wore in charge of L. A.  Campbell, of the ".Vest Kootenay Power  Company, who came to the city on Wednesday to give a finishing touch  to the  details.    The transformers which were  necessary to pu(j the cars in running  order arrived here several  days since and  were already in  position.    Mr. Campbell  determined to  take the  cars   over   the  road yesterday, and about 2:30 o'clock a  start was made from the Bogustown end  of the line,  where the cars have been  standing since they were taken off the  hands  of the  transportation   company.  While the proceedings were entirely of  an impromptu character, a little party of  citizens were aboard the first car to get  under  waj\     Among these were mayor  Neelands,      captain     Duncan,     F.   W.  Peters    and    alderman    Fletcher.      Mr.  Campbell     was     in     charge     of     the  of the  business  end of car No. 2, with  one hand on the controller and the other  on   the   brakes.    F. Carey, foreman   of  electrical construction took charge of the  trolley from the rear platform.  When the car got away, mayor Neelands appointed himself conductor by virtue of his oilice as chief magistrate.    Ho  promptly   collected   a   dime   from   Mr.    L  Peters   and   captain   Duncan.     Oue   or  other of these gentlemen is said  to have  passed  a    plugged    coin  on  the mayor-  .and   to have   narrowly   escaped    being  ejected  for  his temerity.     His worship  carefully preserved  the coins,  and  will  have them mounted as a souvenir of the    '  first street-car fares collected  in .Nelson.  As the car rolled through  the city alderman Hillyer, chief Jarvis,  chief  Thompson and other well known citizens boarded her until sitting room was  at  a  premium.    The  party   was  highly  pleased  .-  with the manner  in which  the car  was    '  furnished,    and     with   its    easy-riding  qualities. <-  When No. 2 reached the car barn Mr. ���,  Campbell returned for No. 1. Any citi-���  /.on .who caied to boarded the car, and a  dozen or so ladies enjoyed tho distinction  of riding in car No. 1 on her initial trip.  The cars took bhe hills and heavy grades,  one of which is a" 14 per cent rise, without faltering. Provision was" made for"  heavy work in this respect when they '  were equipped with four 8.">-h6rse power  motois each. On the downgrade tho  powciful brakes held the car in check  without ,trouble, Engineer Campbell  states that v. hen the apparatus is complete the cars will be able to take the"  Stanley street grade at a speed of 10  miles? per hour, although, of course, such  a rate would not be attempted save as an  experiment. Another marked featuie of  the service is tho ease with which the  cars round the rather sharp curves on the  line. There is a marked absence of jolting and binding, such as is noticeable on  older fine*--, and the explanation is that  the cars are fitted with an extremely  narrow rigid wheel base, thus enabling  the trucks to take curves smoothly.  All the arrangemcnt*_ worked without  a hitch, and the officials were thoroughly  satisfied when car No. 2 reached the barn.  .Some work remain*,  to  be done, and will  be rushed_through today On Saturday_  the cars will be on the tiacks again, and  the engineet states that so far as ho is  aware there is no leason why a regular  time-cai d service cannot be arranged to  commence Monday moi ning, Mr. Carey  will probably diaw up a time-caid after  determining the proper speed at which  the cars should be run.  Many citizens were anxious ioascertuin  how the moving cai--* would affect hoises,  and in this connection it was generally  conceded that the equine race in Nelson  possesses a raio degree of intelligt.nce.  The majority of the teams gave no more  than a passing -.tait a-* the cars parsed.  As tho trams crossed tho bridge at  the intersection of Ward and Baker  streets the rumble and roar was of such n  desviiptiou ns to cause a mild panic  among ��cvcral teams, but at no time wan  theie any danger of runaways. Commenting on this fact Mr. Campbell re-  niaikcd : "One would think the horses  in Nelson had been used to streets cars  for years. 1 have opened a number of  new roads, and have almost invariably  found it nec'e*-sary to run for a week or  so at a snail's pace, with frequent stops,  owing to frightened hor-.es, but in Nelson  thi.s was not the case at all,"  The officials of the company are delighted with the idea that the consummation of their efforts for a regular  service is <so* nearly tealized.  A Second Shipment of Ore.  Grki.nwood, December 21.���A second  carload shipment of ore from tho Gold  Bug claim, in Providence camp, lias been  made to the Trail smelter.

Nelson Men Anxious to Serve.  Lieutenant Beer of the Nelson Rille  Company returned from Winnipeg yesterday, lie had anticipated hearing from  the district officer commanding ore this  regarding recruiting for the second Canadian contingent for service in the Transvaal, and on finding no word awaiting  liim, promptly wired the D. O. C. that  Nelson could be depended upon to furnish  its quota of recruits, cither infantry or  mounted. Mr. Beer is confident that the  response to a call for volunteers would be  even more liberal than was the case when  the first regiment Avas formed. Kadi day  since it became known that a second con  tingent AA'ould likely be sent he has re  ceived offers from dozens of men who are  anxious to serve. In most instances the  men volunteering for service are Avilling  to furnish their oavu horses.  A Large Sum Realized.

It. has  given a characteristic illnstr.ation of its  watchfulness of the comfort of the trav-  elinp; public. In tho waiting room they  ��� liave tho tail end of an old stove that is  deprived of legs and stands upon four  bricks. The business end ol.' the stove i.s  on the other side of the partition separating the- ticket office and waiting  room. The corporation is loo poor to  employ an agent to stay there, although  the business of the station amounts.to  possibly ���$300 por month;''oven with its  present "economical" way of doing business. An agent is employed to be there  to'nieet the train. '������'��� The agent is there  bufra few minute.-., and when the train is  late the agent is also. He seldom builds  a fire The'-waiting* passengers cannot  ���,-get at the .front of the'stove and cannot  ,start a fire, -so they wrap a blanket  around the pipe end and sit and freeze.  One day last week tliere were 11 passen-  gers for Sandon waiting in the cold for  the train. This is almost a daily occurrence. The passenger traffic of the siding  station is greater than at any of the lake  points, but the accommodations are little  better than nothing ; and yet tliere are  people wlio will kick against the government, cr-'  Crow's Nest Pass Coal.  James Johnson, manager of the Crow's  p\Test Pa&s Coal Company, while at   Win  nipeg lately is reported as saying: "The  business of the niines i.s increasing so  rapidly that it i.s xery hard for the output to be kept up to the demand. Three  months ago the output: was only 3000 or  4000 tons, while last month it amounte'd  to 10,000. We are able to supply the  local demand, but have been compelled to  decline many outside orders, notably one  from the British naval authorities at  Victoria. At present the number of men  employed in'the mine is over 300, while  another hundred find-employment' else-  Avhere about the works. We have just  opened ouiftwo new mines, one at Michael and the other at Ericson, and made  the first shipment from these  points last  week."   Mining Transfers Recorded.  Another'batch of mining transactions  were -placed on file at the mining recorder's ollice yesterday. .T. B. Dabney of  Spokane transferred the Original claim,  situated one and a half milesnorth of  Erie, to D. Mclvenzie, the consideration  being $10,000.    The Original adjoins the  celebrated Arlington property. A suit  was recently commenced in the supreme  court, to ensure the carrying out of this  agreement of sale, which will now be discontinued.  . A fourth interest in the Legal Tender  mineral claim, eight miles southeast of  Salmo, was transferred to George Klawa-  no of .Salmo by Alex. Turner.  The owner of the Lily claim, on Forty-  nine creek, has given an option on the  property for $780. -The option expires  on January 20th.  Will Discuss the Insurance Tax.  A special meeting of the city council  will be held this afternoon for tlie purpose of considering tho tax upon fire insurance companies doing business in tho  city. The insurance companies are standing, pat in the matter. Their proposition  is that if the city couucil imposes the tax  of $100 per annum upon them, they in  turn will collect 15 per cent upon all premiums written from  the insured.   A. le  gal opinion upon the matter has been received from the city solicitor, but until  the couiicil meets its centents will hot be  made public. It -will''-probably bo thatthe bylaw of tho council is sound in law  but lacking in horse-sense.  Wholesale  Houses  A.  GROCERIES.
