MARTIAL  LAW   PROCLAIMED  IN   SEVERAL . DIVISIONS  X  London,  office has  dispatch"  "Dewet  Middlebnrg,  British now  ~F  January 2.���The war  received the following  from lord Kitchener:  tried to move toward  Bethlehem, but he was headed off  by Pitcher and retreated toward  Lindley or Ritss. One hundred and  thirty Boer horses have been captured near Thaba N'Chu. The  railway has been damaged south of  Serfonteiu. Williams engaged the  Boers southwest of  Cape Colony, and the  occupy Graaf Reinet."  Cape   Town,   January    2.���The  * British   battleship   Monarch    will  land guns  tomorrow as a precautionary measure.    The situation is  undoubtedly serious.  It is true that the Cape Dutch  have-not joined the invaders in any  considerable numbers, but a lack of  arms is believed to be the true rea-  -. son for their abstention. In many  "places horses are freely offered and  St?) information readily supplied to the  Boers. The early proclamation of  martial Law in the Cape Town division is sxpected. This division does  not include Cape Town itself.  The latest reports show the situation to be generally as follows:  Knruman, if still uninvested, probably soon will be; the ground is  lilled with small parties of Boers  who are working south toward  Prieska for tlie purpose of operating with or supporting Commandant Herbert, whose advance parties  are in the neighborhood of Frazer-  -burg. The Boers are close to Graaf  - I*,eiuet,-wl*.ei'0*_he*DutclHiave given  many demonstrations of extreme  sympathy. In the eastern part of  the colony the advance guard of the  Boers is close to Muraisburg, about  2.") miles northeast of Grader. The  general opinion here is that the position is not properly appreciated  in England. The Worcester conference excited the Dutch throughout the colony. Many old residents,  who are by no means alarmists, regard a general uprising of the  Dutch as quite likely.  London, January 3. ��� "Martial  law has been proclaimed in the  Worcestershire^Ceios���Priuce-Al***  bsrfc, Frazerburg and Sutherland  divisions," says tho Cape Town  correspondent of the Daily Mail,  wiring yesterday. "The enlistment  of volunteers is active and the best  authorities anticipate favorable developments shortly. Tho great  trouble is the scarcity of horses.  ���Seven hundred Boers have broken  tlie cordon at Zuarberg and aro advancing upon Richmond. The  magistrate there reports that they  are burning and lobtuig a few miles  from the town.  . "Lord Methuen is concentrating a  force at Vryburg, whither a thousand troops have been sent from  Kimberley aud others from more  northern towns to deal with, a commando that is raiding around  Kimiwan.  "The,Boers have reoccupied Jag-  ersfontein which, together with  -Fanresmith, the British evacuated  on Christmas day. The convoys of  inhabitants with hundreds of wagons extended for seven miles. It  -was a mournful sight. Camp was  ���pitched at Edenburg.  "I gather that the motive for the  .evacuation   was   the   difficulty of  ,   (maintaining   food   supplies  so far  ���from the railway."  Carnarvon, January 2.���The  Boers, commanded by Hertzog,  Weasels, Preotis and Nisuwenhaut,  are continuing their march'*- onj  Frazerburg. It is rumored that  they have- arrived at Spionberg.  Looting continues, the Boer horses  are foot-sore and there is great  want of fodder, as the country is  barren. Communication with  F,raserburg is suspended and it is'  doubtful when this will be restored,  inasmuch as the Boors are traveling along tne line. Colonel Thorny-  croft and colonel Deliale are continuing the chase there, but their  horses are very tired.  Many Dutch residents attended  the funeral of a Boer killed in -action and placed wreaths on his  ���coffin.  The Boers captured and destroyed  the mails due on December 30th.  , London, January 3.���It is understood that at the conclusion of the  operations in South Africa lord  Kitchener will become commander-  in-chief in India.

Manager Burnett of the gas aud  coke company is well satisfied with  the business done by his company  during 1000, aud is sure of a large  increase during this year. The  company expended- over $ 100^000"  before receiving any return. The  owners of the company took chances  and their investment is proving a  profitable one. The number of  users of gas is increasing steadily,  and there is a ready sale for all the  coke the company makes at a price  that yields a good profit. The company's payroll aggregates several  thousands sa year, all of which is  spent in Nelson. One of the industries the company intended engaging in on a large scale was the manufacture of coke, and manager Burnett is still iu hopes that the directors will authorize the work to be  done at an early date.  Failed to Get Crowe.  CiiAmtON, Nebraska, .January 2.  ���The officers who were reported to  have captured 'Pat Crowe, the alleged abductor of young Edward  Cudahy of Omaha, while endeavoring to make good his escape across  the Pine Ri^jjge country yesterday,  are said to have been thrown off  their guard by Crowe's friends and  sympathizersj many of whom, live  near the agency. Crowe's friends  are believed to be spiriting him  away to the Hole-in-the-Wall  country in Wyoming.  A Fad.

During the year 1000 the people  of Nelson and those who do business at Nelson paid the Dominion  of Canada the sum of $250,000 in  'revenue. No other town in Canada  With a population of 7000 can make  as good a showing.

The disbursement at the Nelson office for,  wages and general expenses aggregate close onto $15,000 a year. All  of which is helping to make Nelson  a real rival to Spokane.  Storms in New York.  Oswego, New York, January 2.���  A blizzard has been raging fiercely  here this afternoon and tonight, accompanied by a heavy snow storm..  High winds prevail with a freezing  temperature.  Lyons, New York, January 2.���  A blizzard from the northwest arrived here tonight, snow falling an  inch for an hour. The mercury  dropped from two above at 10  o'clock last night to zero at 6  o'clock this morning. It has moderated slightly.  News to Change Hands.  London, January 2.���The Daily  News, it is reported, is about to  change honds. The new proprietors  have not yet been disclosed, but  the paper will continue Liberal,  probably without imperialistic tendencies. Mr. Henry W. Massingtou,  formerly editor of the Daily  Chronicle, may be the editor of the  Daily News under the new proprietary.  NELSON MINES AND MINING  HEWITT 'MINE   AT   SILVERTON  IS SHIPPING.  A Second  on the  Payment Has Been Made  May . and Jennie Pro- -  perty on' Forty-Nine Creek.  J. J. Fleutot, British Columbia  representative of the United Mines,  Limited; has' made the second payment on'the May & Jennie property  to. A. H. Kelly, from whom the  company bonded' the group a couple  of months ago;.. The payment-fell'  due on the_3rdMust���"but the United  people handed over their check for  $10,000 several days ago, which  may be taken as* an evidence of the  satisfaction the" May & Jennie has  given;" Since taking over the property a strong i crew has been at  work under the direction of Raoul  Green and *much development has  been added to the eight hundred  feet of work originally done by Mr.  Kelly. By this means an extensive  ore body has been blocked out and  it is generally reported tha*: Mr.  Fleutot. lias' placed a*n order for a  ten-stamp mill, a** rumor which carries weight in view of "the work  done prior -to the snowfall on the  -mill and flume" sites. Apparently  the United Mine^areon Forty-nine  creek to .stay] ~ a, fact which is of  very considerable importance to  that section. '���* The' creek drains a  considerable -portion of the great  free-milling beltjaxtending for miles  west'of the- city, aud the addition  of a big corporation to the-list of  operators -in^the" district, cannot  fail to benefit the district'generally.  Strike ^bn .the Monarch.  A strike of .considerable .importance is' repoi ted -from the Monarch  claim on the .east* fork of Cottonwood creek adjoining the Glad  Hand. A ten foot vein of- quartz  well mineralized and carrying gold  and copper\vaUies;>*^vfis located, and  samples of t'he"oi'_;*were brought iii  yesterday to be assayed. The ore  body was encountered in a 20 foot  crosscut leading from a 50 foot  tunnel. Comparatively little work  had been done ou the claim prior to  this time and the discovery, if the  ore proves to be of good quality,  will be of great interest to parties  interested in the section. Close to  the Monarch is the Robin Hood  group, on which development is  proceeding steadily. The east fork  district is staked to the source and  has the ground work for a prosperous camp on a small scale should  the-properties���now-being-worked  prove satisfactory. The results of  the assays of the" Monarch ore will  probably be known today.  Shipping From the Hewitt.  The Hewitt mine at Silverton is  now fairly launched in its program  of shipping for the winter, sufficient  snow having fallen in the camp to  make fairly good sleighing. Two  cars of tho ore, which is a dry product, arrived here yesterday for  the Hall Mines smelter. A recent  shipment of ten tons netted the  mine $1400, and it is estimated  that the shipment now to hand  will equal this average. The Hewitt adjoins tho Galena Farm and  now carries the second largest crew  iu the Silverton camp^ having 29  men at work. . It is under bond to  a syndicate of American capitalists,  who took hold of the property in  1899 and have worked steadily  since. The syndicate begins the  new century with 1.800 feet of.  work accomplished and 300 tons of  high grade ore sacked ready for  shipment at the mine. It is intended that this ore shall be forwarded to Nelson for treatment at  the rate of two cars a day.  Miscellaneous.  Superintendent Haul tain of the  Yellowstone minewas in the city  yestei*day on business.. The property in question is said by experts  who have seen it to be among the  best managed propositions in the  country. A big block of the stock  is held in Nelson and none of the  shares are on the market. The  management divulges no information about thcrnine, whieh renders  it difficult to secure a confirmation  of the report that the present battery of ten stamps is to be doubled  in the spring.  Walter A. Segsworth of this city  has been appointed assistant assay -  er in the laboratory of the Standard Pyritic smelter at Greenwood.  Mr. Segsworth left this morning to  assume the duties of his new oflice.  T. G. Procter is in Silverton today inspecting the work on the Silverton Boy property, which he is  working in. the interests of the  York-Manchester syndicate.  Another Rising,  San Juan, Porto Rico, January 2.  ���Passengers who arrived here today on the steamer Philadelphia  from La Guayra, December 30th,  say that a serious revolution has  broken out in the Maracaibo district of Venezuela. They add that  tho government troops have defeated the rebels and arrested 20  of the leaders. Another rising is  reported to have occurred in the  vicinity "of the Orinoco. The United  States auxiliary cruiser Scorpion  left here yesterday to join the  Hartford at La Guayra.  PROVINCE   AND   DOMINION  VANCOUVER  CITY AUTHORITIES  . WILL BURN  OLD SHACKS.  Canadians Recommended for Victoria  Cross���F��Uher O'Leary Endorsed  by Archbishop Begin.  Vancouver, January 2.���The  fact of .today being a provincial  holiday is made the basis of a refusal by the civic authorities to  obeyan injunction of chief justice  McColl in the supreme court. Ten  days ago the city council passed a  resolution that twenty cabins belonging to" J. R. Linton * on the  water front were to be destroyed  as unsanitary. The day fixed for  burning them was tomorrow, Thursday, but today an injunction was  granted to Linton by chief justice  McColl, restraining the city from  proccediug. Today, however, be-  ing'a provincial holiday, the registrar * could-., not '-issue - the- judge's  orderjahd "tlie city refuses to accept any other notice. Orders have  accordingly been given "tonight to  the chief of the fire department to  burn the buildings at 7 a. m. and  thus forestall the court authorities.  Want Tories Disqualified.  Montreal, January 2.���Ethier  and Prefoutaine, whoso elections in  Two Mountains and Terrebonne respectively, have been protested and  in Ethier's case personal disqualification asked for, have in turn filed  petitions asking for the disqualification of Messrs. Girouard and  ChauviYiTtli^lefeatedX'onservativc-  candidates.  Recommended for the V. C.  QurciiEC, January 2.���A private  letter received today from-South  Africa states that colonel Lessard  has been recommended for special  distinction, and major Turner of  Quebec, Cockburn, formerly of tho  Governor General's Body Guards,  Toronto; Kinsley, Haldimand Rifles;  and Holland, Princess Louise Dragoons, Ottawa, for Victoria crosses  for bravery iu recent actions.  Will Not Discipline O'Leary.  Quehec, January 2.���Archbishop  Begin has not yet received any  petition asking for the disciplining  of father O'Leary for reading the  Protestant burial service over Protestants in South Africa. He stated  that if one was received it would  not receive any consideration.  There is nothing forbidding Catholic clergymen praying for Protestant dead. ���  Daaf Mutes Wedded-  Ottawa, January 2.���Eva Jamie-  son and Alfred Evey were married  here yesterday afternoon. Both  are deaf mutes.  Americans May Stay.  Washington, January 2.���Minister Loom is at Caracas has advised  the state department that the impending trouble over the conflicting  asphaltconcession has been thwarted  for the present. There are node-  tails in the minister's dispatch, but  it is 'gathered tliat he has induced  the Venezuelan authorities to suspend arbitrary action looking toward the ejectment of somo of the  concessionaires until there can be a  calm, judicial determination of the  merits of the conflicting claims. It  is probable that the arrival of the  gunboat Scorpion at La Guayra has  also been a potent influence in  bringing about the present stay of  proceedings.  THE BUSSO- CHINESE AGBEEMENT  __________________      ' a  For Russian  Protection  of the   Manchurian  Province.  of  Fen   Ting.  CHINA TO RESUME GOVERNMENT ON CERTAIN CONDITIONS  London,** January 3.���In a dispatch to the Times from Pekin,  dated'December 31st, Dr. Morrison  gives the text of the Russo-Chinese  agreement for the Russian protection of the Manchurian province of  Fen Ting. Russia, he says, consents  that China shall resume the civil  government on the following conditions :  First.���The Tartar general Tsung  undertakes to protect and pacify  the province and to assist in the  construction of the railroad.  Second.���He must kindly treat,  feed and lodge Russians engaged in  military occupation and in the  protection of the railway.  Third. .-He must disarm and disband the Chinese soldiers delivering  to the Russians all munitions of  war in such arsenals as the Russians have not yet occupied.  Fourth.���All forts .and defences  in the province not occupiedby the  Russians, and all powder magazines  not required by them, must bei dismantled in the presence of Russian  officials.   - '.j - *_..-,,    ,    '. *'-*.'  Fifth.���Chang and other places  now in Russian occupation shall be  restored to the'Chinese civil-administration when. Russia is satisfied that the pacificatiou of- the  the province is complete.  Sixth.���The Chinese shall maintain law and order by local- police  under, a Tartar general.  Seventh.���A Russian political resident with general powers of .control shall be"stationed at Moukden,  to whom tlie Tartar general Tseng  must give all, information respecting any important measures.  The agreement will necessarily  be followed by similar agreements  with . reference to the otheV two  provinces. Then Manchuria will be*  de facto a Russian protectorate,  Russia by a pre-existing * arrangement having already the .right to  maintain all troops necessary-for'the  protection of the railway.*' **   V-  ���* **._r I  y��-  \:*-'t:  -~*>*-l I  KASER THREE INCHES AHEAD  At End of Third Day.   . '  Boston, January 2.���With' but  three inches to spare, Kaser,* the  German, crossed the finish line iu  the lead of the last mile of the third  day of racing at Park Square -garden. Cobby Walthour, the Southerner, was his closest competitor,  and the last man in the lot was not  more than ten yards in the rear.  Tlie"distarice"iit'rthe'eri"d of "the'day  was 582 miles and i laps. The day  brought one - retirement, that, of  Gougoltz, which was expected last-  night. His leg will h.*we to go into  a splint for a week or two. Muller  and Kaser are the only foreigners  left. Few spills and easy going  made a quiet day.  The third afternoon brought out  ten starters at 1:02. The first hour's  racing was slow and uneventful,  the 400 miles being reached in 20  hours, 42 seconds, with Kaser leading. Then Fischer made the pace  _andkept"it"forthe"rest"of thehourr  At the 21st hour the distance was  418 miles and 7 laps. Tho second  hour was a repetition of the first,  Fischer still leading. The distance  was 435 miles, 7 laps. Babcock was  435.2 and Muller 435.1 Gougoltz was  absent from the track most of the  hour, his score being 311.3. At 2:30  he finally quit, being hopelessly out  of the race.  At 3:25 Walthour tried to steal a  lap and a desperate sprint followed,  and Walthour failed of his purpose.  At the end of the third hour McEachern was in the lead with a  score of 453 miles and 7 laps. He  also lead at the 450th mile in 22  hours, 43 minutes, 45 seconds.  Toward the close of the 25th  hour, the pace quickened a little  and Fischer led at the finish, although closely pursued by Mc-  Eacheijnand Kaser. The distance  was^MHhiles, 2 laps, when tha men  were given an hour for supper. The  men were back on the track at 7:04  and McEachern jumped away into  the lead at the start. The race became a procession.  At 7:30 p. m. Kaser started to  sprint and shortly after Fischer  went down and Walthour went  into him. The latter was soon on  his feet, but the German was picked  up groggy, his head being bumped  quite severely. His return in ten  minutes was the signal for a hot  burst of speed, in which Kaser and  McEachern led. The spurt continued for a number of laps. The 500-  mile mark was passed in 25 hours,  31 minutes, 42 seconds, Kaser leading. Early this evening a physician announced to the referee that  Gougoltz, had ruptured the left  knee-pan ligament and that it  would be impossible for him to ride  any longer. His log will have to go  into splints for a week or more1  To Test the Cup Challenger.  London,    January    2. ��� British  sportsmen are preparing to give sir  Thomas Lipton.every assistance in  testing the Shamrock II.' Mr. Kenneth Clark of Paisley has. purchased G. D. Rose's Distant Shore  principally for the purpose of using  her for a trial, boat with the new  challenger. Captain Hogarth will  be the skipper of the boat designed  by Watson-and built in, 1900,,but  not launched. Mr. James��� Coats  "with similar intent has_pr'aeticaHy  completed negotiations for. the purchase of the Valkyrie III..', With  these two and with the additions of  th<*\ Sham rock I., -the; Sy bari t e���-, an d'  theTMetebr tlie' new cup. challenger  will be tested with a class of yacht-  such .as. no previous British competitor ever met. ' -   .  A HIGH SCHOOL IS WANTED  . *     '  .  *Many Pupils Available. .  The public schools reopen for tbe  ,winter session on Monday and in  this connection the question' of securing a high school for Nelson  comes to the front again. The fact  that nine of the pupils who wrote  at-therecent"entrance~examination"  here were successful makes the necessity for a higher branch of education than is afforded by the ordinary public school course more pressing than ever before. The number  of pupils available for high school  work is over tho requisite twenty  demanded by tho provincial authorities. In 1899 nine scholars passed.  Last year nine more passed the public school leaving examination and  this number is more than likely to  be increased by one, this case being  that of a bright scholar who was  taken ill just before or during the  examination aud for whom application has been made for a special  test. All the previous year's  students took up high school work  with principal Soady and with the  recent list makes a total of nineteen. It is safe to state that in addition to these there are at least ten  children in the city who have passed  the entrance in Nelson or elsewhere  and who would gladly take up the  work if a high school class was instituted on a proper basis. It has  been suggested that to secure a  temporary arrangement the department might be induced to appoint  an additional junior teacher for the  central school thus giving all the  staff a step in rank and leaving the  principal's entire time available for  a high school class, At midsummer  wheu the official scholastic year  ends a better arrangement could be  effected.  The record of the Nelson central  school in the recent entrance examination far exceeds that of any  other school.in the Kootenays and  probably excels any school in the  province. The percentage of pupils  passed was 90, a performance which  reflects credit on the class of youngsters raised iii Nelson and on the  teacher who prepared them for the  test, ��� yy  &�����  ���yd  ��    -I  X2 THE TRIBUNE:  KELSON B.

If  these necessities should be furnished  at cost, why should the city not go  into the business of furnishing other  necessities,   such   as   whisky,   and  coal, and flour, and , meat at cost?  No one is compelled to buy electric  light from the city.   If people use  electric light, it is because they find  it convenient.   No one is compelled  to buy water from   the city.    If  they buy water from the city, it is  --because it-is=more^convenient-than-  having it delivered in any other  way.   Why should the city borrow  money on the credit of all the real  estate within   the   city   limits in  order   to   furnish   any   individual  with either water or light at cost?  Rvery town lot in Nelson is  mortgaged to repay, the money-that has  been expended in constructing.the  water and electric light systems.  The city council is by law required  to levy a tax annually to meet the  amounts required for interest ou  the city indebtedness and sinking  fund charges.    More:   The owners  of improved real estate are held responsible for the payment of water  rates.     Civic ownership of water  and light systems is right, because  ib not   only   has   a   tendency   to  cheapen  these   necessities,   but it  gives their control to the people  themselves.    What city of importance today, besides San  Francisco,  is supplied with water by a private^  company?   And what city supplies;  water   at   co3t?     Nelson   supplies  water and electric light to those of ���  her people who prefer such services.  A fair profit is  made in doing so.  The profit is expended for the good  of all the people in  the  city.    It is  expended in different ways.    Part  of it is expended in laying side-  . walks   and   in    making    passable  streets. These sidewalks aud streets  are absolutely necessary, and they  are used by poor and rich alike.  If their cost was not derived from  the profits realized from the sale of  water and electric light, it would  have to be derived from direct tax  a tion of  real   estate,  owners  of  would like to see the rate of taxation ou real property doubled or  trebled or quadrupled? This is an  issue in the present civic campaign.  It is a fight between the class who  pay no taxes, but who want the  city to furnish them water and electric light at absolute cost, and' the  class who believe that the city  should manage its water and electric light sj'stems on business principles, so that the profit can be used  for the benefit of all the people. No  man who favors the idea of the city  furnishing water and electrie light  at cost should be elected to the city  council, no matter what his other  qualifications may be. Require all  candidates for alderman to place  themselves on record on this  question.        .."���'  Captain John PATBBSOaV has  handed Thr Triijunb a copy of the  centenary number of the Dundee  Advertiser. The Advertiser was  the first newspaper printed in Dundee, and there are only three other  newspapers printed in Scotland  that are centenarians, namely, the  Glasgow Herald, Aberdeen Journal,  and Kelso Mail. The Advertiser is  edited by sir John Leng, M.P., who  has occupied that position since  1-851���fifty years. Ib is Liberal in  politics, and is_said to be one.of the  most influential^journals Jn Scot ���  land. Dundee has 175,Ot5o people  within its limits, and is a very  wealthy city, being the center of  the jute industry.  Were the Bonnington Falls Power Company allowed an entrance  into Nelson, would its management  supply electric light to the people  who prefer to use ib at cost? No I  Would the people in Nelson who  are now clamoring for water and  electrie light at cost ask them to do  so? No! Would the profits of the  company, or any portion of them,  be used in making streets or laying  sidewalks iii Nelson? No! Then  why support men for aldermen who  are unwilling to declare themselves  on this question?   Don't do it!  An Ottawa boy named Malloy  went to South Africa as a private  _.       How many I in one of the .contingents sent from  real   estate in Nelsou J Canada to help thempthereountry.  He has returned to Ottawa blind.  The people of that city are talking  of schemes for his benefit. The  people of Ottawa are wrong.  Private Malloy should not be a  charge'on anyone. The treasury of  Cauada should take charge of all  such men. ...lie risked his life for  his country. His country is not  risking anything in providing him  with a pension as long as lie lives.  Tun TitimJNE calls on W. A. Galliher, the member-elect for,. Yale-  , Cariboo, to see that private Malloy  of Ottawa is voted a yearb1* pension  of .$r*00. That is the way to "take  care of blind volunteer soldier.*3,  and the only way.  The Cabinet Cigar Store  G. B. MATTHEW, Proprietor.

TO THE ELECTOBS OF NELSON:  At the request of a number of electors, I have  decided to oilier myself as a candidate for mayor  at the coming civic elections. I have served as  alderman two years of the four during  which tho city has been conducting its own affairs, nnd my record while in the council on tho  questions that are now the most important issues-  before the people of the city ia such as will bear  inspection.  1 believe that the city has valuable assststn the  water and electric light systems, and white in  the council 1 did everything possible to safeguard  these asset-*; and if elected mayor no act or vote  of mino will be in favor of allowing any outside  corporato interest to becomo a competitor with  Ihe eity in the business of electric lighting, a  business in which the city has already invested  $70,000.  While in tho council in 1897,1 voted in favor of  incorporating a fair wage clause in all con'racts,  and that principle was carried out in both letter  and spirit. I sco no reason to change my views  on that question now. And I .believe, further,  that with competent foremen "and superintendence I hat the city can get as good value for tho  money spent by���having tho great bulk of its work  done by day's labor-as by the contract system,  and no good reason can bo advanced why the'  city should not pay tho same rate of wages and  work men the same number of hours "as prevails  in private enterprises. -     ".'  I am in f_vor of giving Iho business and prop.-  crfcy interests every safeguard- possible, and to  that end 1 believe the fire department should be  made as efficient as possible, consistent with the  revenues of the cily.  Nelson should be kept in advance of its rivals,  and everything possible must be done to induce manufacturing enterprises lo locate here,  for it is the payrolls that build up tho cities of  today.  Nelson, a western city, is as orderly and law  abiding as eastern cities. Thi-* is because the  people of Nelson are tolerant. I believe that this  spirit of toleration should be continued, and 1  will If elected mayor do no act to abridge or curtail the rights or piivilegcs of'one class of our  citizens merely because another class may have  diliferent -views.  The ci'y has made a start in permanent street  improvements, and Iain in favor of continuing  theso improvements as fast as possible, with due  regard io the revenues of the cily.  If elected mayor, I am in a position and will  pledge myself to devote my time to the conduct  of (ho city's business.  FRA.NI- FLETCHER.  Nelson, December I'.th, 11)00.  A  CARD.

Tho production of metals in Idaho  during the year 1900 amounted to  $14,150,000, an increase of $501,582  over 1899, The gold production,  .according to present estimates, fell  off $500,000, while that of other  metals increased. The figures for  tlie year areas follows: Gold, $2,000,-  000; silver, $0,000,000; lead, $0,000,-  000; copper, $150,000.  According to the 'annual'statement issued by Wells, Fargo & Co.  the mines of Utah have produced  metals during 1900 to the value of  $10,011,290. This is an increase of  nearly $4,000,000 over the product  of 1S9D. Over $4,000,000 of this  product was in gold.-  The Rocky Mountain News of  Denver gives the following totals  as the result of carefully compiled  statistics of Colorado's mineral output for the year 1900: Gold, $35,-  183,457; silver, $15,445,398; lead,  .$7,317,810; copper, $2,341,379; zinc,  $1,540,000; iron, $5,08_-020; coal,  $9,025,000; total, $70,622,074.  ��� The Knocker.  With the dawn of civilization,  "jealousy was born. There will always be men who will always miss  the train of prosperity and remain  sour and disgruntled for the rest of  their lives. This class is appropriately called "knockers." *?In mining  camps the "knocker" is found in  great variety of form. There is  the "knocker" who has been told  that the title will not bear investigation f that the ore body is too low  giade to work; that tho ore bodies  are pinching; that Bill Smith has a  better mine for sale at less money;  and that generally all mine operators are suspicious characters unless he (the "knocker") is personally  identified  with the deal.

At night they sit at  their camp fires, their hopes, ambitions aud sorrows are shared.  But let one of these men secure  capital to develop his individual  claim and at once a coolness spriugs  up between them. The old partner  cannot understand why it was not  his mine that was developed. The  friends drift wider apart. One  grows richer; the other becomes  more bitter. Their mines may be  equally valuable, but the owners  are not equal in energy aud push.  Perhaps the best definition of a  "knocker" is one who has failed.  Mine Timbering.  * Probably nothing in the world  can be said to exceed in structural  wonder of its kind the labyrinthian  system of surface timbering peculiar to the mines on the Comstock  lode, at Virginia and Gold Hill,  Nevada, the sum of $35,000,000  being considered a moderate estimate of the cost of the same from  the opening of the mines to the  present time. The size of the timbers varies from huge pieces sixteen  inches square and twenty-four feet  long to the smaller pieces eiglit  inches square used in cribbing. The  species employed are chiefly yellow  pine, fir and cedar, fully two-thirds  of the whole amount being thelQrst  named���a favorite timber, in fact,  with mine carpenters, on account  of its exactitude in joining. Cedar,  of course, is inferior to no known  timber, not even excepting redwood, for its lasting qualities underground, but it is said that yellow  pine,has been taken from the lower  levels of these mines so compacted  by the enormous pressure it has  withstood as to have a density and  weight exceeding those of lignum  vitae. None of the timbers in the  Comstock mines has j-et badly decayed, and their life there cannot  be accurately determined, but the  heat and vapors of the mines surcharged with mineral atoms appear  to have a decidedly preservative  effect upon the timber.

Mr. Kruger in Europe. M. Cambon  spent considerable., time at Paris  conferring with tlie high officials on  imperial.questions. He also had an  opportunity to visit many other  points on the continent, and especially Germany, and gauge the"  prevailing, sentiment. M.
