The force of  meu afc the property is now engaged in taking ore from a chute  recently located, which contains  several inches of high grade ore  similar to the samples forwarded.  One of these specimens, claimed to  fairly, represent the character of  the pay chute, was assayed here  and gave'returus of 544 ounces silver. Another specimen was assayed at Sandon and went 1555  ounces. A shipment will probably  he made shortly, the results of  which will bo awaited with interest, although the percentage will be*  reduced somewhat owing to the  fact that the shipment will include  wl quantity of the ore from the  ledge adjoining.the paystreak.  that operations would have been  in full Hwing ere this, and the event  is awaited with keen interest as the  introduction of a live corporation  into the district means much to  surrounding properties.  The Highland Concentrator.  The Highland concentrator at  the Highland mine in the Ainsworth camp is practically completed  and will be in working order shortly. E. It. Woakes, local manager  of the Highland company, leaves  today for Ainsworth aud-expects  to start the mill before returning.  ,-siliall Tsham of Sandon, one of the  '$_&$$%?  Returns From Two Friends Ore.  The Two Prieiids mine, on  Springer creek, shipped a" quantity  of ore to .the Nelson smelter this  week, the- returns -for which are  just issued. The shipment consisted of 37_ tons, and the net re-  ajdfc'was $1850, which was cousid-'  erably lower than the average of  previous shipments. The property  is located two and a-half miles  above the Arlington mine, and is  well-known, Jiaving shipped from  $-10,000 to $50,000 worth of ore up,  to the present time.;. Thei property  Lis J&eld^.bjc,,John/, .McVieac^and^  Thomas' Lake under" 'a' "lease - and  bond. The "principal-owners are  Messrs.

Manager McKenzie of the Arlington (Erie) mine states that some ore  will be shipped from the property  this winter. The company has 40  men at work afc the present time,  but does not claim that they have  yet reached the mining stage. "We  are prospecting," says Mr. McKenzie, "and-are employing a large  crew because it is, in our opinion,  , better, to do prospecting as rapidly  -as possible.^���At-the-Keystone-on-  Whiskey creek, not far from the  Arlington, a Spokane syndicate has  a crew of men opeuiug up the vein,.  John Shuttleworth, the owner of  the Keystone, was in Nelson tbis  week. lie has received the first  payment on the bond, whicli is for  $25,000. It is stated that the claim  ia showiug up well.  Staking Snow Claims.  The report of the sti ike on the  Royston group has been the means  of sending up more than one experienced prospector to the west  slope of Morning mountain for the  purpose of securing ground. The  difficulties to be encountered in locating claims at the present time  when the hill is buried in six to  twelve feet of snow and the existing location stakes are only to be  discovered with a snow-shovel can  be imagined. The likely ground  now. vacant on Morning mountain  has narrowed down to small dimensions: but on the theory that the  early bird secures the prize, several  enterprising prospectors have gone  up the hill at a season when pros-  Xxeeting; can' onlyvbe a matter of  question.       '._______'  The kaslo Camp.  George Alexander of the Kootenay Ore Company, operating  sampling, works at Kaslo, is in the  city"today'on business.'" Mr. Alex-  ' under states that shipments of ^ ore  have dropped off somewhat during  the past week or two, but that increased activity is looked for at an  early date. About the only matter  of special interest near Kaslo is the  ���starting of work at the True Blue  group on the north fork of Kaslo  ' ft reek, bonded recently tp the Canadian Gold Fields.   |fc was expected  sights employed on the build-  city yesterday and  -,- --. -������, ^Highland's mill will  unci^^l.SJlp^^fove to be one of the  best; plali^i^i' the' country.

Greenwood, January 11.���[Special to The Tribune].���Henry Madden of the Windsor  hotel  is  out a  keg of beerj and there is rather -a  peculiar story in connection with  it.    Seven-years ago Madden ran a  hotel   at Coulee City, in the Big  Bend country.   That was at a time  when the financial condition of the  state of Washington was at a very  low ebb, and the citizens of the Big  Bend metropolis were. as badly off  as   their brethren.   ^ Madden   had  made up his* mind to close up and  go elsewhere, but previous to leaving  the place gave a little picnic  party   to   some -congenial   spirits,  choosing the shores of Lake Chelan  for   the   occasion.       Considerable  liquid refreshment was taken with  them, and as long as it held out the  campers staid.-' Then came the last  bottle, and a "thought struck the  host, who penciled a few lines on a  piece   of   paper,  placed  it  in  the  bottle,  and  havingicorked   it  up,  threw the bottle, far'r- into, the lake  and promptly forgot-all -about .-it.  i/rhevp_-.rty*^e_fcurned v home; and *"-he  left" the  Big "Bend  country,  going  first   into   business "at   Northport  then coming here.   Today Madden  was approached by a stranger who  introduced himself as L. B. Holgate,  a recent arrival here, who exhibited  to him a piece of paper the pencil  wording of which, though  slightly  obliterated,  read:  "Whoever  finds  this order is entitled -to a keg of  beer by applying to Henry Madden,  Coulee City, Wash."    That Madden  was  astonished  might well  be imagined, and after "setting them up"  the  stranger  told  his story.    Holgate was a sergeant in the "Fighting  First,"  Uncle  Sam's  pet regiment from the neighboring state.and  after the   Washingtons  were  disbanded   at'���''Frisco   found  himself  wifclrquifce a stake.���Ke-and-a-com-  paniou made up their minds to go  prospecting    in  the   Lake   Chelan  country.    Last .July  they  arrived  at place called Safety Harbor,, and  while his partner was fishing Hol:  gate employed the time prodding  the sand from  a log.   His labors  were rewarded by finding a bottle  which, on examination, was .--found  to contain a piece of paper, and it  was the order Madden  had written  out six years before.    He  kept the  paper and during the course of his'.  rambles was in  both Coulee City  and Northport, but the author was  gone.    Ho   struck   Greenwood  the  first of the week and noticed Mad-  den's name on a bill of fare at the  hotel aud promptly made his acquaintance, with   the   result that  the order was duly honored, and  the finder broached the keg of beer.  From the spot where Madden threw  the   bottle   in t6   Lake   Chelan  to  Safety Harbor ib is about 23 miles,  so the bottle drifted   around for  some six years, finally being washed  upon the beach and then buried in  the sand.  Do Not Want McKinley.  Atlanta, January 11.-���A special  from New Orleans says: At a meeting of the camp of the Army of the  Tennessee, the strongest of the Confederate associations of New Orleans, a resolution offered by general Stephen Chalaron, commander  of the camp, protesting against the  invitation of president* McKinley to  the Confederate reunion to be held  in Memphis this spring, was unani-  - mously adopted. General Chalaron  explained that ifc was understood  that the president would be invited  to Memphis, and the resolution was  intended simply as a warning not  to do it.  THE  DESIGNS   OF RUSSIA  THERE    IS    NO    INTENTION  KEEPING   MANCHURIA.  OF  So Says the Russian Minister, But the  Britishers Refuse to be Soothed  by His Assurances.  London, . .January    12.���M.   De  Giers,the Russian minister to China,  denies the current leport that Russia is endeavoring to make a special  agreement with China irrespective  of   the   other   powers.    "Had this  been the case," he said today,  "It  would not have signed' the joint  note, although probably as far as  Manchuria i3 concerned, Russia and  China will  make special arrangements, which will not conflict with  any treaties or agreements made  by   Russia   and   the    other   joint  powe'rs.    I do not believe that Russia has any intention of keeping  Manchuria.    Indeed she is placing  all  the   Chinese   officials   possible  in office. Probably, however, ifc will  be   necessary to   guard .the   railway for an indefinite period. ��� I  do  not   believe that there are 25,000  Russian    soldiers   iu   Manchuria."  With  reference' made to the claim  by some of the  other envoys, Mr.  De Giers was very positive in saying that Russia had nofc violated  her word in taking a concession at  Tien-Tsin.  Prince Ching and Li Hung Chang  are still awaiting instructions from  the court regarding the agreement.  Both claim that, it is practically  certain these orders will be favorable, enabling them to sign immediately. Prince Ching says proof  of the court's intention to order the  affixing of the signatures is to-be  found in the fact'that prince'Chung,  has been designated to go to Berlin  to express China's regrets for. the  "murder, of baron von Ketteller, ^ -  ,..���JJp^po^,.Jaunary<:*lt2.���According  to a dispatch to" the'" Daily News,"  from Shang-nai, captain Chon, who  participated iu the Chuchou massacres, has been sentenced to death.  SnANa-nAi,^ January 11.���The  China- Gazette" asserts that three  Italian warships have anchored off  Sau Mun bay. This statement is  not confirmed officially, but there  are rumors of Italy's intention to  acquire a station north of San Mun.  London, January 12.���"Prince  Uchtomby's miesion to Pekin," says  the St. Petersburg correspondent  of the Daily Mail, "was to secure  a convention I understand of the  following basis: In return for  renouncing her claim for war  indemnity Russia demands instead    a   ninety    year    lease    of  Xiao Kung peninsula and of.  Port Arthur. In other words she  demands annexation, as well as the  complete possession of the Manchuria railway, which under the existing agreement reverts to China  after ninety years. The Daily  Chronicle makes the important  statement: "From trustworthy  stories we learn that lord Salisbury  has agreed to cede to Russia  the railway from Niu Chwang  to Shan Hai Kwan. It is not  known what compensation will be  received for tho concession. Beading financiers Y versed in Chinese  affairs who were interviewed yesterday by representatives of the  Daily Chronicle appeared to think  that if the news was correct ifc indicated that lord Salisbury recognized the .impossibility of preventing the partition of China- and that  Russia would get the north and  Great Britain the Yang Tse valley.  The original prospectus of the railway company stipulated that the  bond holders- mainly British, could  be bought out afc any time at the  rate of ��120 per ��100 bond.- The  Daily Chronicle hv an editorial on  the subject taunts lord Salisbury  with havingmade 'another "graceful concession" "because Great  Britain's entanglements deprive her  of the strengtli to back up her  diplomacy.  Lord Dufferin's Explanation.  London, January 11.���Amid cries  of "Turn him out," hooting and  other hostile interruptions, the  marquis of Dnfferin and Ava, chairman of the suspended London &  Globe Finance Corporation, Limited,  at the extraordinary  meeting   of  the company called yesterday, sue-       ceeded in at least temporarily apr   several  peasing the wrath of  the sharer J estate  holders. The hall was packed, and  the directors were evidently supported "by a' .considerrble faction, as warm cheering was  mingled'with the hoots and hisses.  As a reside of tlie explanations of  the directors the shareholders voted  an adjournment until Monday,  when a scheme fpr the reconstruction of the concern will-be submitted. ' Lord Dufferin spoke with  evident emotion as he explained his  personal relations* ��� with the corporation, and the result of the  meeting was largely attributed to  himself. During the course of his  remarks he explained that he was  induced to accept the chairmanship  at the solicitation of the late lord  Loch and sir William Robinson.  KITCHENER WILL GOME OUT  WIDE OPEN TOWN IS THE  Main Issue.;at Oreenwood.  Greenwood; January 11.���[Special to The Triburte.]��� Both Duncan  Ross and Dr. R;-'W.

Certain to Cause Discord.  Manila, January 11.���The first  day's discussion of the bill to establish a departmeut'of public instruction developed today a contest on  the question of religion in public  schools.   The interest centers in the  section permitting priests and ministers to teach religion for half an  hour three times weekly outside of  school hours, provided the parents  express a written desire for such  instruction, and prohibiting teach-  eisfrom conducting religious exercises or teaching religion. The Federal party was represented by a  committee, who, although Catholics,  argued strongly in favor of the  elimination of the section. They  declared that the use of school  houses for religious purposes is contrary to the United Sfcates constitution, and also to the platforms of  the American parties and the Phil-  ipine Federal party, and is certain  to cause discord.  A Most Unusual Development.   '.*  Berlin, .January ' 11. ��� Prince  Chun, brother of emperor Kwan  Su, paid a long visit to Dr. Von  Schwartzentein, German minister  to China, which according to a  special dispatch from Pekin was . a  most unusual development of  Chinese etiquette. Dr. Von Schwartzentein, in a dispatch to the foreign  officeon the subject, says: "Prince  Chun created a sympathetic impression. He strongly resembles his  brother, the emperor, .but is more  robust and more intelligent.''  Anxious for the Canal.  Managua, Nicaragua, via Galveston, Texas, January 12.���The people  of Nicaragua, who are anxiously  watching the progress of events  with regard to the Nicaraguan  canal, are in hopes that the government of the United States will pass  the canal bill without delay. President Seelaya is paying a visit of  days  to   his   Chimandega  ON  TOP  IN  ONLY  SOUTH  GIVEN  AFRICA  TIME.  IF  He Is Organizing Enough Rough Riders  to Keep the Boers Constantly  on the Move.  The action floated in the court.  The Toronto firm did not put in an  appearance, and judgment went  against them by default. Today  judge McDougall refused to grant a  motion to have the judgment enforced. The judgment of the British Columbia court, he declared, has  no force in Ontario, and could not  have unless the defendant had gone  to Rossland in answer to the writ.  DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION  London, .Tanuary 12, 4:50 a. m.���  It is understood that lord Kitchener now holds securely all the railroad lines in South Africa, having  recovered possession of the Delagoa  -Bay line, which had been cut since  January 7fch. According to the  Pretoria correspondent of the Daily  Mail, lord Kitchener is now organizing a force of 30,000 irregular  rough riders, which will occupy  some weeks. When this force is  ready he will resume offensive operations.  Meanwhile" the invasion of Cape  Colony looks more threatening.  The news that commandant Hert-  . zog has two guns is rather startling,  as ifc was formerly asserted that the  invaders had no guns. . The defences of Cape Town," including two  4.7 naval guns, are now completed,  and the recruiting of volunteers is  active throughout the' colony, According to dispatches to the Daily  Express, the admiral, of the. Cape  fleet is to prepare in an emergency  to land a naval brigade of 2800 men,  with six hotchkiss guns.*  A Murraysburg telegram this  morning says the' Dutch there received the British troops sullenly,  and ifc reports that there are rumors  of the colonial "rebels of the neighborhood joiningithejinvaders.  A Pretoria correspondent of rthe  Morning Post wires that members  -of the burghers' "peace committee,  who. had been.-interviewed, confessed that there was no hope of  many burghers surrendering.  London, January 11.���Earl Rob-  ei'Jb^*lia.-*^Jbeej��^^ . at;  tlie War/.officer lindMfc "is; believed  reinforcements will be.ordered on a  large scale for the mor.il effect in  convincingv Kruger and the Boers in  the field that resistance is futile  and that lord Kitchener's overtures  should be aocepted. The rapidity  with which the details of the favorable military operations at Mag-  aliesburg are received excites the  suspicion that affairs are not going  equall y well iu other quarters whence  no authentic news can be obtained.  General French's cavalry division  has again butmaneuvered and defeated Delarey, and possibly has  driven his force from the Wit-  watfirsrand district, although this  is not quite clear from the dispatches. The mountain strongholds   are   less   important   to the  Boers than formerly, since they are  making little use of artillery, and  are depending almost entirely on  their rifles and horses. General  French apparently has the body of  mounted men requisite for the hot  pursuit of Delarey's burghers, but  they will probably divide and  break up into small bands.  The Conservative Leadership.  Toronto, January 11.���-Sir Charles  Tupper in the course of an interview here, respecting the Conservative leadership, said: "I see it is  stated that ifc is an open secret  that I am in favor of sir Hibbert  Tupper being selected as leader  for the Conservative party. There  is no foundation for the statement," continued sir Charles. "I  have invariably refused to give any  intimation or offer any advice on  the question of the leadership. I  prefer to leave ifc entirely with the  party. So far as sir Hibbert is concerned, if he were offered the leadership and asked . iny advice, I  would strongly urge him not to accept it. I feel that his .professional  position would not warrant him in  making the enormous sacrifice which  would be required."  Disallowance Talked Of.  Ottawa, j'January 11.���It is reported on good authority that the  federal government will disallow  the British Columbia act which  affects the immigration of Chinese  and Japanese from tho Orient into  that province.  An Important Ruling.  Toronto, .Tanuary 11.���A Rossland dealer named Gilmour some  time ago sued Greville & Co. of Toronto for an alleged debt of $377.  Duchesnay May Go to Cuba.  Montreal, January 11.���The appointment of E. .1. Duchesnay, now  an assistant superintendent on the  Pacific division1 of the C. P. R., and  stationed at Revelstoke, British  Columbia,. as superintendent* of  construction of - the Van Home  system of railways in Cuba is denied. Mr. Duchesnay returns to  British Columbia on Monday.  MERCANTILE INTERESTS ARE  Consolidated at Greenwood.  Greenwood, January 11.���[Special to The Tribune.]���The consolidation of the interests of three  mercantile firms was successfully  accomplished this morning, and  articles of incorporation of the  Russell - La w - Caul field Com pany,  Limited, have-been forwarded to  Victoria for registration. The new  concern has a capital of $100,000.  The. company has acquired three  lots on Copper street, and in the  spring will erect a substantial two-  story brick block with a frontage  of 75 feet and a depth of 100 feet,  but it will be modern in every particular, suitable for the carrying on  of a wholesale and retail business  in - dry goods, hardware," and'  groceries.

The demand for coal is in excess  of the supply, and local dealers are  hard pressed to keep their customers going. The difficulty with  regard to Lefchbridge coal lies with  the transportation people, who do  not seem able to lurnish sufficient  cars. The Crow's Nest product is  also scarce, because of a break-down  of the plant at the mine. The  scarcity of the black diamonds is  said to be c.insing the Nelson and  Trail smelters some anxiety.

But what word;  ���svor appeared in these columns could approach ,  the infamous, cold-blooded treachery of The Mail*  and News?  II is fair -olajr to honestly and man-'  fully criticize tho public acts cf John Shaw, but  was it honest or decent on the part of The Mail  or The News to turn upon and rend the man who  was brought into the field by the desire of The  Mail and'News to.beat mayor Macdonald or  . Spence at. all costs?  It'is not enough that The  Mail or News should destroy John Shaw'- hopci  of election lo the mayoralty; they must also take'  away the character of the man as an individual  worthy of esteem in private life.  The above is from the Toronto  Telegram, and shows that Toronto  and Nelsou have the same kind of  politicians, who are in turn supported by tlie same kind of newspapers as The Mail and The News  are described to be by The Telegram.  In Nelson a worthy citizen was  induced, to consent to make the  race for may_r by promises of support from politicians, and the  promises of support from the politicians were followed by fulsome  praise of tho candidate in a newspaper that is used as a mouthpiece  by these politicians. All their  promises and tho fulsome praise  was followed by what The Telegram  describes as ''infamous, cold-blooded  treachery." The Mail and The News  up to tho day before election supported .John Shaw for mayor of  Toronto, and on the last day th��*ew  him down and supported Howland,  who was elected.  ji'   .j  II'  '\  A number of small towns, like  Slocan City and Ymir, are talking  "incorporation." All the revenue  thafc the people of these towns now  pay goes into the provincial treasury, and the people claim that very  lifctleof ifcis re-expended in the towns.  The claim is true; biifc it is doubtful  if incorporation is a remedy for the  evil complained of. Once a town is  incorporated, the bulk of the revenue collected seems to be frittered  away in expenditures that are of  listle real benefit. It is easy to  spend money derived from the sale  of debentures; but it is hard to  raise money year after year to pay  the interest and sinking fund  charges on such indebtedness. The  Tribune is of opinion that the small  fowns, instead   of   incorporating,  should be allowed the right" to be  designated as villages, with a board  of three'elected or: appointed, trus-.  tees, the board of trustees to have  .authority to expend the amount of  revenue actually collected within  the limits of the village by the pro-  vineialauthorities from such sources  of revenue as real estate taxes and  licenses. Were this done,' the  money would, to a great extent, go  towards making, public improvements that, would be actually necessary. Revelstoke, which is a good-  sized and good:appearing town, has  been incorporated as a city for two  or three years. Last year  its actual cash receipts from  real ' estate, licenses, police  court fines, ro��ad and- dog  ta"xes,~"and~airmiscellaneous~sources*"  were $11,225.02.- The expenditures  for the year were over $19,200, distributed as follows: '  Firo brigade ..  .$3,913 01  Fuel and light....   1,077 20  Printing, postige;and telegrams    .361 58  Pellce department..'.':���  2,G0S 65:  Yesterdjiy's Mining Records.

Apparently, the only thing Revelstoke  has to show for the expenditures it  made last year is what was spent  on roads and streets, which is a  sum less by $1500 than the sum  realized from the sale of debentures.  TO THE ELECTORS OF KELSON:  At the request of a number of electors, 1 have  decided to offer mytolf as a candidate for mayor  nt tho coming civic elections. I. havo served as  alderman two years of the four during  which tha city has boon conducting its own affairs, and my record while in the council on tho  questions that are now tho most important issues  beforo tho peop'o of the city is such as will, bear  inspection. "  1 believe that the city has valuable as3sts in tho  water and electric light systems, and while in  the council I did everything possible to safeguard  these asset*; and if elected mayor no act or vote  of mine will bo in favor of allowiug any ,outside  corporate interest to become a competitor with  ilncity in the business of electric lighting, a  business in which the city has already invested  570,000.  While in the council in 1897,1 voted in favor of  incorporating a fair wage clause in all contracts,  and that principle was carried out in both letter  and spirit. I see no reason to change my views  on that question now. And I believe, further,  that with competent foremen and superintendence that tho city can get as good value for tlie  money spent by having tho greatbulk 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 the same rale of wages and  work men the same number of hours as prevails  in private enterprises.  lam in favor of giving the businc3i and property interests evory safeguard possible, and t o  that end I believe tho flro department should bo  made as efficient as possible, consistent wl'h the  revenues of tho ci!y.  Nelson should be kept in advance ofilsiivals,  and everything possible must be done to induce.manufacturing enterprisoi to locate'here,  for it is the payrolls that build up the cities of  today.  Nelson, a western city, is as orderly and law  abiding as pastern cities. This is because the  people of Nelson aro toloi ant. I believe thnt this  spirit of tolera'ion should bo continued, and 1  will if eleated mayor do no" act to abridgo or curtail the rights or privileges of ono class of our  citizens merely because another class may have  different views.  The ci'y has mado a start in permanent street  improvements, and I am in favor of continuing  these improvements as fast as possible, with due  regard lo the revenues of the city.  if elected mayor, I am in a position and will  pledge myself to devote my time to the conluct  of the city's buxiues:!.

Passengers from Spokane by the  Bonner's Ferry route reached the  city yesterday several hours late,  the delay being due to one of the  railroad company's tin pot engines  coming to grief.  The heavy snowfall yesterday  interfered with the street cars, and  it was only by persistent effort  that the lines were kept open. A  snowplow was attached to one of  the cars, which helped matters out.  It is not likely that the lake will  freeze over at Nelson. The ice as  far as it extends out from the banks  is thin, and a little wind will break  it up so that ifc will float with the  current.  The .dispatchers' table for the  new C. P. R. depot has arrived and  is being wired today: This department will be moved from the old  station within the next. three or  four days.

Tlie hockey club held the ice at  the rink again last night and a  number of players turned out for  practice. With the material available and the practice the players  will obtain before the game, Nelson  should win out afc Sandon next  week.

These  automobiles are for collecting and  distributing mails in the outlying  points in Toronto, and they are calculated to go, at the rate of forty  miles an hour, if such high speed is  desired. . They are propelled by  gasoline steam engines, and each of  the wagons weighs about (500  pounds. They are fitted with  pneumatic tires, and they are attractive in appearance as well as  being strong.  And" This is No Joke.  -_- -t Mark Twain.

Lord Eoberts' Service.  _.     ," New Yo'rk'Tribune':"*' -  Despite jthe fafct thai' the'Boer  war was and is' with 'a third' rate  power, our London correspondent  did not exaggerate 'the case when  he said   tlie. other day that lord  Roberts went outrto Africa a year  ago to protect .the British empire  from the greatest.danger that had  menaced it since Yorktown.     We  need not except even the menace  which   Nelson   destroyed at   Trafalgar.   To vindicate this view of  the case we have to I'ecall only the  circumstances  of the outbreak of  the Boer war.   The two Boer states  had leagued   themselves  together,  not   merely   for.   defence'   against  British   aggression, but,   as   their  "leaders��� frankly���declared-*���and-  boasted, to drive the British out of  South     Africa   .and     to     make  <Cape     Cojony,     Natal    and     all  the     continent     south    of     the  Zambesi aiPutuh^confederation.    It  was. widely, declared, and memories  of the German emperor's dispatch  on the Jameson raid gave apparent  color to it, that Germany, France,  Russia and other continental powers were   in   sympathy with   the  Boers and   might probably array*  themselves on  their side for spoliation of the "modern Carthage."    It'  was, moreover, perfectly apparent  that if Great.Britain showed herself unable, to hold her colonies in  South Africa the bonds uniting her  with   other   and   greater   colonies  would    quickly   be    loosened    or  wholly broken.   In the last three  months of 1899 it was not only the  rights of the Outlanders, but British possession of Cape Colony, of  Australia     and    of      Canada���in  fact,   the   existence   of  the 'British   empire���-that Y was   at   stake.  That was the situation a year ago-  It was increasingly ominous down  to the date of lord Roberts' arrival  upon-the scene.   Then, with astonishing     celerity,     the      situation  changed.   The .tide of battle was  rolled   back.'   : Beleaguered  towns  were relieved.    Boer armies were  vanquished and   captured.       The  British flftg was Taised   over the  Boer capitals.   The powers of continental   Europe ; discovered   that  they had, after all, no interest in  the matter.   And the British colonies around the world were bound  to the mother country with ties of  blood, shed in a common imperial  cause, more potent than ever before  existed.      That   was   the   service  which lord Roberts performed for  the British empire. ,  .~_m  _E_E. "B~__r:E3:R,s s- CO.  DSTElXaSO-Sr  _r__.sxaO  s_a_*r>T3DO"_<r  STOVES!   STOVES!   STOVES!
