Windsok, January 8.���So many  have applied to lieutenant-colonel  Quillet, for service in South Africa,  that he decided to restrict enlistment to members of the* 21st regiment, should the government decide to send another contingent.  PANAMA'S SAFETY ENSURED  whether a piece of railroad work"  was level, straight, well ballasted,  etc., aud form au opinion for himself. Tho testimony of all who had  seen the line between Nelson aud  Procter is that it is superior in construction to auy section -of similar  - length in the province. Much of  �� this excellence is -doubtless due to  ��� the**-* nature of -the surroundings.  Following the-river, as-the road  does, there is practically no grade  over the whole line, "and the fact  that most of the line*'was through  rock cuttings makes the ballasting  ��� problem easy of solution.- It now  remains to be seen when the C. P.  K. will extend tho line through to  -Kootenay Landing. As "far as can  . be learned the company, has come  to no decision on the point,-and the  fact tliat the section from Procter  . to the Landing would cost close to  ���$3,000,000, exclusive of tho completion of the,bridge across the lake,  [���' v--���.makesi .it unlikely.-that they, will  -y. rfcari*y-_>u^tlie Iwork"'*unless. the ne-"  ���:'-���* e'essity is/ very "pressing, whicli is  '���^ . tiijt; .the^c��se_-at-present, *>fi*om**?.,"v  -*"*��� "'traffic standpoint at least.. _-   ���   -,.-,  ���    '    -   The New Bridge.. _���*"  P.

Yesterday, ��� for ��� instance, a heavy wind blew "on the  Columbia and it was impossible to  move freight across the river. This  occurs often and one of the advantages to be secured by the bridge is  the prevention of such delays. Incidentally the.'compauy doubtless  expects to save money by cutting  ofl* the crews now required to handle  the transfers. - The entire cost of  the new bridge will, "it is said, run  close to $800,000. AVhen it is completed trains will run through to  Mid way from Nelson, while a branch  line train of two cars, all that can  be handled on the grade, will run  to Rossland.

ABIC COMMERCIAL COMBINE  TO CONTROL THE TRADE OF THE  CANADIAN KYUK0N.  Two-Pirst-class-Steamers-Will -bo-Put  the Run Between Vancouver and Skagway.  on  Is***  Vancouver, .Tanuary S.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���There are thirty  inches of snow on tho ground here.  This fall is unprecedented in Vancouver. The street car service is  practically abandoned, and business  is at a standstill.  The'White Pass Railway Company has purchased two first-class  steamers for the run from Vancouver to Skagway. An arrangement has also been made with the  Canadian Development Company  for through traffic connections in  the Yukon, and the White Pass  and Alaska Exploration Company,  with a view to making a combine  of- the entire wholesale business of  the Klondike.  The returned Vancouver soldiers,  from South. Africa, have received  ���appointments as sergeants, and are  posted on* the ; local regimental  i-oster as next in promotion order.  Sergeant-.major McMurphy, an  ���old pioneer of Westminster, died  in New Westminster yesterday,- in  ���his 80th year, the result, of a fall.  The deceased was born in Dumbar-  'fconshire, Scotland, enlisted in the  ���"sappers and. miners in 1840, and  first saw service in. South Africa  agaiust the Boers in 1811-2. He're-  fturned to England in 1853 and was  ���engaged at the Woolich arsenal.  J_ater he served during the Crimean  ���war, was invalided home in 1855,  ���and came to British Columbia with  tappers in 1859, where he was mustered out in 1863, and resided ever  since.   He held medals for distin  guished bravery, -.tho -Kaffir medal  for service in South Africa, the  Crimean medal and the Turkish  medal for the Crimean campaign,  also the long service and good eon-  duct medals, and a French medal  similar to the Victoria Cross, for  bravery during the Crimean war.  During the last few years he was  -iuiablo_tojwork,_and_had_only_been_  down town thiee times during the  last eighteen month"?, at a banquet  to the departing South African  volunteers in October 18S9, on  Ladysmith day, and Friday week,  when he attended a banquet to the  returning South African volunteers.  He will be buried with military  honors on Thursday.  Shaughnossy Is Not Pleased.  Montreal, .Tanuary 8.���President  Shaughuessy, .of the C. P. R, returned from Chicago today. Speaking of the reported contract be  tween ��� the Crow's Nest * Coal Company and the. Great Northern railway for 800 tons of coal per day, he  said in view of the fact that. the  coal company is unable now to meet  anything like the requirements of  the railway companies, the smelters  and other coal-consuming industries  of British Columbia, the proposal  to divert such additional tonnage  causes considerable; apprehension.  He hoped if the coal company had  made any such contract for the  shipment of coal to the United  States that it will not go intoeffect  until the output of. the company's;  mines is sufficient to supply Canadian wants. '���-. Local requirements  ought, in public - interests, to be a  first consideration, and fully supplied before coal and coke from  Canadian mines should be diverted  to the United States. <  Second Contingent Returns.  Halifax, January 8.���The steamship Roslyn Castle, with the second  Canadian contingent on board, arrived at 7:45 this evening. The  steamer will not leaye the quarantine grounds until 8 o'clock tomor-i  row night. The men will leave iii  the afternoon for home, after Hali- I  fax has given them a welcome. Two 1 afternoon.  UNITED  STATES   WOULD  RESIST  REVOLUTIONISTS ATTACK.  This Can Be Done Under the Terms of a  Commercial Treaty With  Colombia.  Washington, .Tanuary 8.���There  is reason to believe that the United  States government ;will adopt a  vigorous line of action in case the  city of Panama is attacked by the  revolutionists or there is any interruption of the transit facilities of  the isthmus. According to a treaty  arrangement with Colombia the  United States has been given a certain measure of protection over the  peaceful conduct of this traffic  .across the isthmus. When consul-  general Gudger, a few mouths ago,  reported' that the revolutionists  would bombard the city of Panama,  acting secretary - of state Hill  promptly seut a dispatch to Mr.  Gudger announcing in unusually  vigorous term3 that- the government" would not tolerate any action  likely to prejudice the interests or,  interfere \yith the rights'which this  government has assumed." This dispatch-.became<.~publie in Panama,  and- had the ''effect of putting an-  end to the plan of bombarding. Mr.  Gudger's present dispatch does not  indicate that the city itself is about  to be attacked, but if it develops  by later information that there is  any prospect of bombarding, the  vigorous procedure of a few months  ago will be repeated. At present  the gunboat Ranger is at Panama,  and the Philadelphia and Towa are  on the way to the locality.  Did Their Business Openly.  CnEiaSKA, Massachusetts, January S.*���Joseph Hart, Samuel Goldstein, David Karner, David Wer-  _blinsky,���ahd~Terry Sullivan-were-  arrested here today charged with  stealing, in broad daylight, a safe  containing $1,100 in money and  $2000 worth of jewelry, from the  office of Morse Bros, in Boston. The  police recovered a part of the stolen  jewelry, and $500 in bank bills.  Morse Bros, conducted a diamond  aud jewelry business on the lease  plan. The robbers visited the place  while the proprietors were out  soliciting trade, and covering the  safe carried it away on a wagon. A  number of persons saw the safe being taken away, but supposed the  men were legitimate safe movers.  More Places for Politicians.  Washington, January 8.���By a  vote of 185 to 102 the house of  representatives today accepted the  reapportionment plan proposed by  the Burleigh' bill, which increases  the membership of the house during  the next decade from 357, the  present membership, to 386.- The  result was largely brought about  by the influence of Certain senators  from several of the larger northern  states, who threw the weight of  their influence into the scale in  favor of the larger membership.  Another Kidnaping Case,  Union Springs, Alabama, January 8.���Bass Fraser, son of captain  N.E.* Fraser, of this city, is missing  fromthe school in Atlanta, and a'  letter has been received notifying  liis father that he has been kidnaped. .  Struck by a Train.  Antwerp, New York, January 8.  ���Mrs.. - Emily Fisher, au aged  woman of -.. this, village, was instantly killed by a freight train at  a railroad crossing at 3 o'clock this  CHINA'S LUCKLESS ENVOYS  MAY   SIGN   THE   TREATY  LOSE THEIR /HEADS.  AND  This, is a. Chance Which "the Foreign  Ministers Would Take, .but the  Chinamen Hesitate;  (  Washington^ January 8.���The  negotiations whTch'*have been pending for some _tiuie' relative to the  removal from-BekinTof some of the  subjects of international negotiations, so that they.* could * be taken  up at Washington;-'or*at the capital  of one of the powe^-have now advanced to a  promise  of  stage I where there is  under-  a  satisfactory  startding among'the powers on this  move. The plan originated through  a suggestion of iiainister Conger,  cabled about a.-week ago, to the  effect that there was little prospect  of united action^ron the subject of  indemnity and of mew commercial,  treaties" with China.    *  Mr. Conger suggested that better  prbgress in the 'negotiations was  likely to" result if Jthese two phases  could be removed; from Pekin, and  taken up at some" point entirely removed from local*, influences. Mr.  Conger's idea-'met with favorable  consideration--heife, .and the suggestion was madejtb the poAvers interested in Chin'a;'--that the matter  of Chinese indemnity and of commercial -treaties!i|be taken " up at  Washington or aVsomeof the other  Europeaivcapitals. ._��� In expressing  this plan it ha3-been the purpose to  assemble an international commission, which could^pass on all questions of * inderniiitiy,:- both- among  themselves -aridVas . against' China*.  It would be in the -main a conference among the>powers, although it  is expected thati'the" Chinese envoys  would "be^iiivilgd <to -���.participate  after ' the -proceedings, reached a  stage .where ;-ihe "'unity:, qf action  ���aniong*"-the^pp\vers ^should���be- assured. .        /  The state department has already received iudicatiojis as to  the general feeling of some of the  powers on this proposition. There  appears to be no reason to anticipate serious objection to the transfer, and most of' the powers have  appreciated the obstacles at Pekin  in the way of agreement on the  two subjects of indemnity and  commercial treaties.  Minister Conger was heard from  today in a cable to the state department. The text of the dispatcii  was not given out, but it was made  known that in substance Mr. Conger  confirmed-reeent-press-reports-to  the effect that there was reason to  believe that the empress dowager  was exerting her influence against  the acceptance of the demands submitted by the powers. -It is the  feeling among the officials here that  the" influence still wielded by the  empress dowager may lead to  serious complications in case she  seeks to bring to a halt the negotiations now pending.  The powers, by stating their demands to be irrevocable, made them  practically an ultimatum. While a  refusal to sign by China would not  result in a declaration of war to enforce the demands, there would be  a prolonged occupancy of Pekin,  and this might lead';to fresh complications threatening the integrity  of the Chinese empire. Tlie United  States government is seeking to insist upon the signing of the treaty  by the Chinese " envoys, ori the  ground that they presented credentials clothing them with complete  authority to act without the necessity of first submitting their acts  to the imperial court for approval.  Based on these" credentials, Mr.  Conger and the other ministers at  Pekin are urging that; the. envoys  should . sign with6ut)!i*eference to  the attitude of the'"ipourt, and in  case the signatures are given, they  will be accepted as a complete expression of" the will of the Chinese  government.  Panncefote Will Remain.  London, January 9. ��� Lord  Pauncefote, British ambassador to  the United States,' according to  information furnished to the  Associated Press today,, will remain  indefinitely at Washington. It was  the intention bf the British government to appoint his successor next  issue between the United States  aud Great Britain are believed to  be too serious to permit his removal.  London, January 8.���Great Britain has not yet replied to the circular of the United States government,  inviting tho .powers to confer in  Washington.. The Associated Press  is authorized to say that she is willing to agree to the proposal if the  other powers will also agree, but  the impression prevails in London  that other European powers are not  likely to accept Mr. Hay's suggestion.-  THE'STRIKE ON CHAPLEAU  TRANSVAAL IS ANXIOUS FOR PEACE  Kronstadt Peace Commission in a Circular Recommends  Acceptance of Kitchener's Terms.  EX-PRESIDENT STEYN THE CHIEF OBSTACLE TO PEACE  DIFFERENT  FROM  CHARACTER OF ORE  A NEW  DRIFT.  Company   is", Steadily  Increasing  Force, and Will Shortly Put in  a Cyanide Plant.  its  Lucien Weyl, commercial manager of the Chapleau-mine, is in the  city for a day or-'two on business.  In reference to the condition.of affairs at tho mine Mr.- Weyl states  that a crew of 45 men is now employed on the property, exclusive  of the mill crew, and that this number will be increased,to 00 within  fifteen days. More'men are required  and will be taken on as it is found  possible to accommodate them in  the bunkhouse now under way. A  sawmill, has been purchased* and  will be set, up within a few days  for the purpose of taking out timber for buildiug and mining purposes. "-"-  Within the last few days an interesting strike was made on the  Chapleau. It consisted of a body  of ore encountered in a drift run  for development ��� purposes.

It has developed,  however, that the mill will not save  as large a percentage of the values  as. was estimated when the plant  was installed, and the management  will be compelled to utilize one of  tho cyanide processes for treating  the tailings. M. Morgues, the company's engineer, is on his way from  France to look into these matters  and is expected to reach Nelson ten  days hence".  New Currency Bill.  _s_WAsniN0iTON, January_S. r=Repre__  sentativo Overstreet, of Indiana,  who had charge of the gold standard  bill in the house, introduced today  a bill to maintain the parity of*"*<>]ie  money of the United States. This  measure seeks further to strengthen  the gold standard, nnd insure the  continued parity of gold and silver  by providing for their exchange  ability at the treasury. The  bill provides that all gold and  silver coins of the United States,  except subsidiary coins, shall be  exchangeable for each other at par  at the treasury of the United  States at the demand of the holder.  Por the purpose of carrying out the  provisions of this act, the secretary  of the treasury may employ any  part of the reserve fund, gold coin,  and bulliori.'-'established by section  2 of the act of March 14ch, 1900,  entitled, an act to define and fix  the standard of value to maintain  the parity of all forms of money issued or coined by the United States  to refund the public debt, and for  other purposes, and money received  in exchange, for gold or bullion  under the provisions ��� of this act,  shall be held in said reserve fund,  and not paid out except in the manner provided ;by the United States  in said section-2 of the act of March  14th, 1900.    * ''  Railway Smash in Virginia.

Both engines were going  at full speed to the switch,  as the  March, but the questions now at I Pittsburg flyer'was nearly due,  Cam** Town, January 8.���The  central peace commission, at Kronstadt, has issued a circular, in the  course of which it says: The time  has arrived for the inhabitants of  Orange Colony to make an effort to  save the country from further destruction. The country is literally  a vast wilderness. The farmers,  ruined and facing starvation, are  obliged to go to the towns for protection, and huge refugee' camps  have been formed by the British  for them. This' misery is caused by  an obstinate minority "who will not  bow to the inevitable. The circu-  lar,Jpoints out that the British will  never restore independence to the  republics, and urges upon the burghers the duty of surrendering and  acceptiug tho terms offered.  The recent Afrikanders' congress  at Worcester is criticised in the circular as misleading the Boers, and  giving ~ false impressions. In con"  elusion the committee says:' The  British government is willing to  settle matters in a way not ungenerous or humiliating to us. , We appeal to you to appoint another  congress, and to nominate men  of influence to meet Mr. Steyn  and general' Dewet,"-' aud try  to persuade them* to accept  the terms Great Britain offers.  These men are the only obstacles in  tho way of peace. We ask you to  believe us when we say that Mr.  Kruger and the late Transvaal government are -willing, and would  have already accepted the,*British  terms, but Mr. Steyn has refus^J-a  "have anything      " "       ���--�����-.������-'-���  has continued and has encouraged  .the:burghers-with-��*7hope'-*that~.h.e-  ���would-get'Ruropean assistance.

We appeal to you to help us  to end the unhappy state of affairs  which is plunging everybody into  poverty^ aud despair. We appeal  to you because we know you aro  able to assist us in the right  manner."  The committee   includes   W. E.  \Sowet, late assistant commandant",  three members of the   volksraad,  and two j ustices of the peace.  whose resignation was asked by the.  war office (,owing to" the Lindley  affair, has been left in the hands, of  lord Roberts. There is" no disposition on the part of the war  office to recede from the position ic  has taken up. In fact,, whatever  lord Roberts may decide,, general  Colville will be severely overhauled  for a breach of the regulations iii  discussing the matter wilh the  press. The selection of sv commander-in-chief for India and for  Canada has also been relegated to  lord Roberts. ��� ��� '.'  Trying to Shut.Out Chinese.

You  cannot call it war, yet in some respects this is worse than war. It  is well nigh impossible to fight iu  the ordinary way against a people  who have no uniforms. For a week  ���perhaps for a month���a Boer goes  out to fight, then he says: 'lam  sick of this,' buries his gun and becomes in all respects a peaceable  farmer. Yet the very next week  the spirit moves him. and he digs  up the gun and rejoins his commando. " It is terribly hard to deal  equitably with such a character.  The secret of the whole campaign  consists in horses. We have  enough men there, but not enough  mounted men."  cerrung the president's illness: "The  president's cold has developed into  a"well-defined case of grippe.

Tt is true that the  French Canadians "of Quebec sought  redress of grievfinces in 1837 and  ' 1888 by taking, up arms; but so did  the English-speaking Scotch and  -Irish and- English of Ontario,  .ind Canada has no more  loyal sons today than the  descendants of the men who  followed Papineau and Mackenzie.  Sir George E. Cartier, for whose  head the imperial government  offered    ��500,    was   subsequently  ��� knighted- and afterwards made a  baronet, and was for many years  the most influential leader of the  Conservative party. William Lyon  Mackenzie returned from exile and  was honored by the people of  Ontario. But since 1S-37, and before  that time, there has not lived a  more loyal and dutiful race than  the French Canadians. They refused  to join the thirteen revolted provinces against Great Britain, though  it was less than twelve years since  they had seen their mother country  driven out of Canada. They fought  in the first, ranks everywhere in the  war of 1812. They won the greatest  fame and did the most glorious feat  in that war. Colonel de Saliburg  with 300 French Canadian habitants  defeated general Hampden with  10,000 Americans and saved Canada  to Great Britain. Yet today his  descendants and those of his three  hundred heroes are being vilified  and traduced by men who have no  other thought than party advantage in politic..  Three of Toronto's best dailies���  the Globe and the Telegram and  phe Star���supported Frank Spence  for mayor, aud he was defeated by  a candidate who did not have the  support of a single newspaper. Such  is the power of the press!  Tiiiohk are 115 Presbyterians and  only 20 natives of Scotland in all  the penitentiaries of Canada.  A��'( oiiDixo to a return made by  K. Miall, commissioner of inspection  of electric lights, to tho inland  revenue department .at Ottawa, for  the year ending June 30th, 1000,  there are only thirty-two cities in  Canada that have more electric  lights than Nelson.  William MaoAdams of the Sandon Paystreak is not the only editor in British Columbia that can-bo  charged with uttering fallacies in  print. There are others. But unlike the others, William 3M:ic-  Adams's fallacious utterances are  readable.   , In 1895, the value of the exports  from the mines of Canada for the  four months ending October 31st  was $2,(502,123. For the same four  months in 1900 the value was  $10,552,900. In 1895, the exports  from mines ranked below the exports of the fisheries, the forest,  animals and their produce, .agricultural products, and manufactures, hi fact, the mines Avas at  the bottom of the list. In 1900,  tho mines stood second, being only  exceeded by that of animals and  their produce. What will the  totals be in 1905? Mining is rapidly  becoming the greatest industry in  Canada, and the center of the industry is in British Columbia.  The Protestant ministers of Winnipeg are said to bo agitating for  better religious teachings in the  public schools. The place to teach  religion is in the churches, and if  Winnipeg is'short on churches and  long on schools, the - people of that  town are-well off.       * ���  .Religion and Politics.  George L. Lepointe and George N.  Sense of Winnipeg have entered a  petition against the return of  Joseph.Bernier as a member of the  provincial'house- for. St. Boniface.  They allege; a -corrupt bargain between premier j Roblin and archbishop Langevin, by.which, the latter was to exert his influence upon  the voters to support Bernier,-and  the former was to endeavor." to "procure-legislation* advantageous to,  the Catholic minority and members  of the Catholic church within the  province, relating .to the support  and maintenance of separate schools  of that church. The petition also  makes charges of briberyj personation and fraud, and asks that'the  election be declared void aud that  Bernier be disqualified.  Death of Samuel D. Calinwell.

LAY, "Manasfu. *  English trade unionists are returning the compliment, by contributing  large sums and levying an assessment to continue as long as the  lock-out lasts.  The following from the Seattle  Union Record is not sentiment,it is  the   quintessence   of   trade  union  principles: When your union signs  a contract, in the form of a scale of  Avages, Avith your employer, it is as  binding   upon  you  as  upon   him.  You bind him to pay you so much  for "a day's Avork," aud you aro  morally obliged   to perform   that  day's work   honestly.   It matters  not whether you receive $2 or $4  for eight hour's service, if you have  agreed to   do "a day's work" for'  either sum yoiir employer  is entitled to as much for one Avage as  the other.   If you' have closed a  bad bargain  you should make the  best of it���fulfil your part of it if  you expect him to fulfil his.    One  of    the    greatest     handicaps    of  "unionism"   is    the    "soldier"    or  "time-killer."   When a man "soldiers" or "kills time" on a job he  becomes a thief and a despicable  one, for ho thieA'es under the -protection" of his union.    The employer  tolerates him because he does - not  like to have him embroil him -in  trouble Avith his other union employees whom he respects.   Such a  man should do ono of two things:  If he "loafs" because he deems himself worth a -higher Avage than his  fellow Avorkers  he shonld demand  it, and if his estimation of himself  is correct ho will  get ifc, for employers aro ever- ready to pay above  the scale.to superlatively superior  workmen; but if ho "loafs" through  downright laziness he should get  out of the union or be kicked out of  ifc.    Men who" do au- honest day's  work for an agreed wage should  not be compelled to bear the odium  of shielding a timo-thief Avith the  cloak of unionism.  -c5*-�� -d*-*-*- c5> -c_>  v^ ���<i_% "^^ ���*�����_�� '  ��� C_>&-^^��  1 "*=***, ���^������""V  ��**-,��� ^'&'^'c_Zl'<^'C_t1>(Z3'C_7'  Established in Nelson 189(1  ���<E_&^ ^=c�� <^  JACOB DOVER  The Jeweler  m  THE  is_m  SEASON'S GREEETINGS to my many friends, old and new,  who so loyally seconded my efforts during the year just  passed.

Refreshments were served from  Tlie Palm and the ��� balance of the  evening was spent socially.  Mr. Frew leaves Nelson tomorrow  evening for Kamloops where he  will remain for a week or two.
