ROBERTS' WAR DISPATCHES  jt  A VOLUMINOUS BUDGET STOOKED  V      WITH MORALS.  Queen' Wilhelmina Will Probably Not  Visit England���Other European Gossip.  New York, February 10.���In a  dispatch dated London, 1 a. in.,  Isaac N. Ford, correspondent of tbe  New *- York Tribune, says : The  issue of exchequer bonds, for which  tenders ,will be opened on Monday,  will probably be the last addition  to the floating debt this'quarter of  the financial" year. There will be  more borrowing before July, but  on a larger scale andiu a more permanent , form of. national security.  The   new * issue "will probably be  ., taken on more favorable terms than  when the exchequer bonds 'were  offered in December,- as the interest  rates in the open market are lower,  - p.nd it is expected  that 'the entire  ^mount-V-��l 1,000,000 sterling���will,  be taken at short notice. '"' '' * .  American-banks' may obtain a  portion, but it vi*s_ considered, more  probable in flnanciarcircles that the,  entire issue will-be taken here.'-The  chancellor 'of the ' exchequer has  waited   until   there   is   an   easier  * money market and Jias, made/ f ult;  use of the borrowing powers with'  which he was armed by parliament.  Instead of applying two or. three  times for a subscription his financial  policy has - been safe rather than  brilliant "and has,, been adapted to  the convenience of the street rather  than the requirements of war time  with steadily increasing expenditures. ~   Lord Roberts' Telegrams.  Referring to _lord -Roberts' dispatches, the .correspondent says:  The official history of the war in  South Africa has been brought  down to August by the publication  of- the dispatches of lord Roberts,  general Buller, general Hunter and  general Baden-Powell. It is a voluminous budget, stocked with  -morals-and--strictures���which^-will-  provide experts with employment  for many months. Lord Roberts-  comments upon the Sannas post  reverse are ambiguous, but colonel  Broad is exempted from responsibility, while sir Henry Colville is  mildly .censured for indecision.  This is the main controversial point  covered by these dispatches. Otherwise lord Roberts' criticism is  mainly directed against the business side ,of' the military management.   '  He has adopted lord Kitchener's  view that there was no organized  transport service for South Africa  when he took command of the  forces, and that that greatly vaunted army service corps had gone to  pieces. Members of that branch of  the service have been reproaching  lord Kitchener since January last  year rfor interference with a well-  organized system, but they will  now have lord Roberts unequivocally against them. General-conclusions fairly based upon these  official reports are, first, that the  power of the fighting line of the  British army is as great as ever,  and, secondly, that the business  management of the various supply  services is as faulty as at the time  of the war in the Crimea. Lack of  mobility has been the chief hindrance to the progress of the British  arms in South Africa, and the business services are held accountable  for it in their" neglect to supply  horses and food systematically and  in good time.  Veterans in the service sarcastically comment upon lord Kitchener's  own failure in the course of twelve  months to provide a better substitute for- the army service corps.  The campaign is apparently dragging because nearly 200,000 soldiers  are needed for the protection of the  lines of communication and barely  more than 20,000' mounted men *are  ayailahle Y- for ,- active ^operations  against Boer commandoes, and they  are held up every fortnight because  their horses have given out and  cannot. be,.replaced. ?The_ week's  excursions .and alarms :tiav9 n��t  been exciting, but it is singular that,  at the close experts'should tile re-  peatinglttie^same old moral which  ' was heard after the occupation of  Bloemfontein and Pretoria,J that'  nothing,but the lack of 50,000 fresh  sblr^^Yprevents a < speedy close of  th^^^^feteSS'arfare.��       '.*,���,  -*���  pffi'ce -is* actively  emplSy^^mm^^j^pfiOOl fresh  troops, raam^^^^ted, to the  theater of war, in -ueglition to the  colonial levies already mustered,  rthe^e seems to be no guarantee that  "there 'will' be horses5 -in" sufficient  lumber's to enable 'the' cavalry -to  hunt down the Boers.  One of the most interesting requests for which parliament can ask  will 'relate - to' the purchases �� bf  horses for the use. of the army in  the'field. ��� * It will reveal a blundering facility for buying horses which  are only fit for three weeks' service  in South Africa.  Bishop Hurtzell, whq���has been in  Londonfor. ten-* days, sailed '."today  for South'Africa to resume mission  work for the Methodist Episcopal  church. The bishop' is an ardent  supporter of the British cause in  South Africa .which, he identifies  withy the   'interests     of-   higher  civilization.   ' *"  - ,   n   y,   ..  y . Chamberlain's Policy.  j Referring tp the reported, change  of^Mr.cClmmberlain'sSouth*African  policy, Mr. Ford says : Mr. Cham  berlain has been annoyed by  unfounded and.fantas.ic report that  he has been in consultation with sir  William" Harcourt and Mr. Morley  with a view' of making proposals to  the Boers for bringing the war to a  close. The denials which* have come  from Birmingham were -hardly  needed. General Kitchener- is the  only peacemaker in sight 'and' the.  [progress of his negotiations witli'  infantry battalions ".and mounted  forces is imperceptible.    '.

A  <���  an  Discredits the Rumor.     ,  ** * i -  Mr.   Ford   discredits the  rumor  that queen .Wilhelmina intends''  visiting England. . He says: A continental rumor that queen Wilhel-  mina and duke Henry' will visit  England this spring is not credited  here. There is probably no war-'  rant for ttie, current, report that  queen Wilhelmina wrote a letter to  queen Victoria on the subject of  the Boer war which excited' the re-*  sentment of the1 royal' family,-but  her own subjects would not be  pleased if she were to decide to  make a journey torEngland.     _   -  Jefifries-Ruhlin Fight.        \ \  Cincinnati, Ohio, February 10.���  Notwithstanding the proceedings in  court here and the attitude-of���the  government at the state capital,  this has been a busy day with the  sporting men in Cincinnati. All  the visiting and local sports are expressing their opinion as to the two  men. They generally pick Jeffries,  although they concede that Ruhlin  is in better condition.' They will  go through .their regular , practice.  Monday. They will slacken" their  exercise Tuesday, and still more on  Wednesday, doing very little on  Thursday. They, rest on Friday.  As the preliminary bouts between  Childs and Martin for 10 rounds is  not to be called till 9 o'clock Friday  evening it nifty be late when -Jeffries and Ruhlin enter the "ring for  their 20 rounds. Meantime there is  much anxiety over the decision of  judge Hollister and the action of  governor Nash.  It will be known in a day or two  whether judge Hollister will grant  a permanent injunction against the  contest on the ground of a public  nuisance, but the promoters do riot  know what the governor will do or  when he will do it. While the  mayor with his permit promised a  force of police to maintain order, it  is known , that the police will not  protect the event to the extent of  offering any resistance to the military, which is said to have received  marching oiders for Friday evening. - There has been considerable  talk today about postponing the  contest. -If judge Hollister shall  allow the injunction on Tuesday,  the defendants will at once appeal  to the superior court and if they  lose in that intermediate'court they  will carry the case to the supreme  court, which does not sit again till  February 19th. If- this course is  pursued the contest may be postponed from one to two weeks.  jThe King-May Visit GettatayMccom-  3    ponied .^Alexandra, Afte^Par-^  (. i  if  liament Has Opened.  .'ir- j  i c  ���London/ February'-10.���The Trib--  une correspondent, in1."discussing  the.opening acts of (the, reign of lhe  V.'*5'W"* >   '    ->    '      '^*i'.

Social croakers are sounding a  warning against the coming triumphs of spurious* smartness, and  are asserting that the king needs deliverance most of all from the flatterers aud adventurers surrounding  him. The king certainly has known  more about 'the' real character of  English society than the lamented  queen ever understood, and if- his  memory gives him useful service  and he has strength of mind for readjusting social balances, his court  may. not lose dignity as it becomes  more brilliant.  The annuities granted to the heir  to the throne and the members* of  his family will also be determined.

He ,heard  heavy firing and knowing that  colonel Pilcher's column was on the  other side of the mountain, he concluded*: that this officer .was in ac-  tion.Y Consequently he hurriedfor-  ward only to meet the Boers streaming down and evidently retiring  from colonel Pilcher's lyddite shells.  Immediately Maj or Crewe brought  three 15-pounders and a pompom  to bear on the Boers who, however,  were found to be so numerous1 that  it.was impossible to head them off.  Orders were 'given to' return to  c&mp, about two mileB from tlie~  mountain. The column rested until 4 in ttie afternoon, when the  march was resumed southwest.  Major Crewe was just touching the  southern point of the mountain  when a terrific rifle fire opened  from a large force of' Boers who  were in ambush on the mountain.  The- fight soon became general.  The Boers outnumbered the British  five to one and were attacking  them ou both flanks and the rear.  The British pompom jammed  and became useless. Major Crewe  grasped the situation and by a brilliant movement got the convoy  into a safe position. -��� Between 7  and 8 in the evening the Boers  charged the position and turned  both flanks. .The British ammunition became exhausted and major  Crewe was obliged to retire and  abandon the pompom after the advance party had endeavored to  save it and had sustained severe  losses. A rearguard action was  fought by major Crewe into the  camp where the wagons had been  laagered. He personally superintended the retirement, the Boers  harassing him throughout.  .Entrenchments were thrown up  during the night. When morning  came major Crewe started to join  general Knox 12 mile's southwest.  The Boers immediately reattacked  him, compelling him to fight a rear  guard action a second time for a  few miles. General Dewet personally commanded the Boers, estimated at 2500. Major Crewe's force  was only 700. Eventually the British officer joined general Knox and  returned to Bloemfontein. Lord  Kitchener has highly complimented  major Crewe upon the , achievement.  The shipments of ore to the Hall  .Mines smelter during the past week  are as large, if not larger,' than they  >were the preceding , one.     During.  the'first part of the'.week "the- re-'  ceipts were a little light,1 but at the  close they'came in' stronger." The  , receipts..' amounted   to about ' 500;  'tons. , .

This week about 100 tons were sent,  in, and it is expected that this rate  will be kept' up.     Before iron ore  -could' be   obtained at   home ���the  smelter.comp'any was forced to look  to the iron properties situated near"  Kamloops for its supply, but during,  the past week-only one twenty-five  ton car has been received from that  district.;; It is thought that in the  near   future the > quantity of  ore  taken. from, .the Slocan properties  will be large enough to meet the de-'  mand < arid that there will be no  further shipments made from Kamloops.

The ore received  from there was 80 tons or over.  .This was a considerable   increase  over that "of  the previous week.-  -The Queen Bess continues to make  as large shipments-as  ever, having  sent in about 80 tons.

It is  expected that this week the receipts will be considerably increased. *    '  The consignments of ore from the  mining district to the east of Nelson are just as large as they have  been for some time past. Frpm the  Molly Gibson, although work was  suspended there early in the week,  00 tons were sent in. There is still  at the property a large quantity of  ore ready to ship, but no further  consignments will be made until  operations are resumed. About 80  tons were received from the Silver  Hill on Crawford bay. The greater  portion of this was brought down  yesterday by the steamer .Kokanee.  It is probable that the shipments  from there will increase as time  goes on "owing to the working force  at the property having just been  increased. From Moyie the shipments have totaled about 80 tons  and the greater portion of it came  from the Society Girl. The St.  Eugene is in this section also, but  the ore taken from this property is  sent elsewhere.  A large amount of coal and coke  is also being shipped through this  port.

They  hoped to force Dewet upon the  British forces concentrated ou the  Orange river.  The Boers, under cover of a detached commando, swung westward  and captured a pompom from major Crewe, and by crossing the railway between Springiontein and  Edenburg evaded the British concentration. Dewet is now probably  in the Philopopolis district, and  this probably accounts for the  northwesterly movement of the  Boers in Cape Colony. The latest  proclamation issued by Dewet and  Steyn closes thus: "I shall now enter Cape Colony to give tbe farmers  there a taste of what we have ourselves suffered through this war."  s    -_  ��� s<VI  ' f-l^'l  St'*}'* I  MX  *&** i  -_* ���wflCneuarasjssKxaKBSi!^  ��Ml.-la-<i-rtu>_iU ��!>w*>iU*ftrff--:  fc-^A-rt--__-i---  SE-SSSS  sees  THE TRIBUNE: JtfELSON  U)AY, FEBRUARY  w  ib  ib  ib  ib  ib  ib  ib  ib  ib  ib  ib  m  ib  HAVE YOU HAD ON THE SIDEWALK��  DURING THE PAST FEW' DAYS? $  ib  ************************ i��  IF YOU HAD WORN A PAIR OF QUR&l  * Rubber Soled Shoes ... .. ��  YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN PERFECTLY ib  SAFE.

The pleas that are offered on 'behalf of. "Jim" Hill's railway combine are amusing. Some newspapers,  argue . that   a , charter. should be  granted to the United States .rail-,  ��� way promoters-in order that the  tonnage tax which the Crow's Nest-  Pass Coal Company pays might be"  swelled.   That this tax would be  increased there is little doubt,  but  what would it amount to-when set  againstythe���-depreciated values,  created by the stifling of the  smelting industry of the province.  The smelting industry is more to  British Columbia than a dozen  collieries such as that at Fernie.  Tub "Victoria Times suggests that  " Jim" Hill should be granted an:  entrance into Southeast Kootenay  because he does not seek a subsidy  of any kind. This is not putting  the matter fairly. In the first  place the projected road into the  United States could not be built  * without a Dominion charter, and in  the second place if a Dominion  charter were granted it would  carry at least the usual subsidy of  so many thousand dollars per mile.  What Canadians are asked to do is  to subsidize a railway which has for  its object the building up of United.  States smelter centers at the expense of British Columbia smelting  points. '   As the result of a series ,of deals  the railroads of the United' States  are now controlled by six men���J.  Pierpont .Morgan,. James   J.  Hill,  John D._ Rockefeller, E. IL Harriman, W. K. Vanderbilt and George  J. Gould.    These six men now control    railways   which . in    extent  would girdle the��� earth two and a  half times, and have-control of suf-,  ficient money to fight the United-  States wars   if   necessary.   Of all'  the railways qf, the United States,  there are but three important lines  remaining independent of the great  pooiy These-/are   the   Chicago- &  Gtreat Western; the [Rock .Island,'  the Atchison... and the, 'Burlington.  As,_ the   result of'this great deal  there no .longer remains ..rival rail-  ways in;th#.great .republic, and for  the-f uture the -merchants and1 business men of 'the United-States will  tie "forced'-.to. accept such rates as  these _ six   men   shall   dictate.   In  [Wall street this  result.is known.as.  the "harmonizing" of the railway,  interests of the- republic.   One of  its effects'hasbeen^that no one can  travel from New,,York to any'point,  in '-the   western,, states,, without,  paying the price .-fixed- by, the .six  men who control' the railway, situation, and merchants cannot ship to  -the-west-without^payingsuchirates  as   these   six   men may at   their  pleasure set. v In short, it is a case  where   six men   hold up   the-70,-  000,000    people    who    make'  up  the    population   of    the    United  States.   British   Columbia' unfortunately   is     interested   .in    the  movements   of    this*, great,. combine because one of its prime movers  has singled out Southeast Kootenay  for. future operations.   He sees in  British Columbia, with  its   great,  wealth in coal and(other minerals, a  promising field for the,feeding of  the great railway   trust.   He desires in the outset to tap the coal  reserves at Fernie, and whenr the.  output of the collieries is controlled,  to dictate terms to the smelting  and mining interests of British Columbia;, and strange as it may seem  there are newspapers in   Eastern  Canada which say that no barrier  should be placed in   the. way of  securing railway competition such  as offered.by the greatest railway  trust in,the'history, of.the world.

Hockey at the Biok.     - .-  Two't hockey i game3x*;ofEspecial  interest will be played-fat the rink  this week. This evening the game  will be between the* senior and in-  termedia'te teams of the Nelson  club. The former will consist of  the members who have defeated  both Rossland .and* Sandon, and-  thuS'Jiold the, championship of the  Kootenays.   The other   team   has  .not as yet distinguished itself, having played with none of the outside  teams, but judging from the practice work that they have done they,  will put up a strong fight. Their  forward line is equally as, good as  _that_of-the_senioxwteam_and_they_  have also an excellent combination.  It is safe to say that the game will  be the fastest ever played in Nelson  between local teams.  On Tuesday night*- at 0:30 the R.  M. R. boys ��ind those of the tram-  way_company will play their second,  'match. This also promises to be an  interesting game., In the game  played between the teams last  week the tramway succeeded in  winning by only one point. The  teams are. well, matched, and ;this  time the rifle company will do its  best to secure the-victory. The  teams will consist of practically the  same players that-participated in  the last-game, with probably one or  two changes.-  The senior team of the Nelson  club   will   leave.'for^ Rossland  Wednesday morning.  on  Lord's Day Alliance.

In delivering his  address, which occupied- about  , three-quarters of an hour, Rev. Mr.  Shearer made many convincing and  strong arguments to illustrate that  Sunday was a-day' of rest and  should by all�� mean be observed  by every one of the inhabitants  of the globe. He asserted that at  the present time Sunday was nearly  universally ��� observed throughout  the Dominion, but notwithstanding  this he said that there were each  day various things. eropping up  which made vigorous.inroads upon  the sanctity of the Sabbath.

The boat from Arrowhead did  not reach Robson last night aud the  passenger train returned to Nelson  at the".iisual hour, which is 10:10.  The delay "of the boat was due to  the large ��� amount of ice that is  forming in'the upper lakes.  A. J.

The  papers were signed on Saturday  and the consideration is said to be  about $1500.* Mr. Robinson -will  continue ' the business - at both  stands'.

MAY AND JENNIE TRAMWAY  To.Be Built at.Once., ,. , .  ' A tram way,'is to be built at the  May and Jennie group, situated on  FortyTnine creek, in the near future.  'A'P. Le'mieux, who is superintending the work on the tramway that  is being erected by B.! O. Riblet at'  the- Tamarac "-group' at - Ymir, -. arrived" iri Nelson last evening- en,  route to the May-and Jennie "property. ' He" said that J. J.- Fleutot,  who represents 'the -TJnibed Mines  Company controlling .the property,  had asked Mr. * Riblet to put in a  tender' on the construction of" a  tramway. He will leave in the  morning and will * make ,-sa '��� preliminary survey for the work. It will  be about 3000 feet in length. *> ���  The company controlling .this  mine bonded it but a few months  ago from A. H. Kelly and since that  time they have been exceedingly  active in bringing it to the front.  The development is progressing  rapidly and a good quantity, of ore  is being removed from the workings. A stamp mill has been  ordered and part of the machinery  is already on the ground. The site  has been cleared and the foundation  completed. The work upon the installing of the, new plant -will be  pushed vigorously and no time will  be lost until it is in operation. A  flume is now being built and will be  completed in a few weeks. A saw  mill is also being erected on the  property. The boilers for this  plant have already arrived  and in a short time the machinery  will be ready to operate. The sawmill will be run continuously so as  to supply sufficient lumber for the  improvements. When the summer  months are at hand there is not the  least doubt that the property will  be added to the shippers of the Nelaon district.  - Eev. Blvth's Lecture.  There was an unusually large attendance at the Emmanuel Congregational church last evening to hear  the sermon delivered by Rev. R. B.  Blyth, B.A., on the subject "A call  to service."

The cottage annex of the general  hospital, which has been under construction for the past few months,  was completed .last week. ��� The furniture -has heen ordered and will  arrive this week, and the building  will probably be occupied by patients a week from - today. The  greater portion of the furniture  has been purchased from D. McArthur & Co!, but the couches have  been ordered from a Toronto firm  and will be the, Gale hospital bed,  which is built especially for hospital use. - The building is built on  modern plans, and is extremely convenient in^'every respect. Every  ward, in the'"*present building is occupied , and'. as t other patients are  seeking-accommodations in the in-  stitutiori-the officials wish'to occupy  the "new building as quickly as'possible.' Several patients have '��� already.* spoken, for ' wards ��� in the  building, and as fioorias it is opened  1 it is probable thtft r every ward will  be taken.v '  . Hospital Notes.  Mr. Beaven, -��� accountant of the  local branch of the Bank of Montreal, who has been confined to the  institution for tlie past two weeks',-  suffering from a'jfractured knee, returned to * his duties Saturday  evening.     '  Mr. Fox, who was operated upon  Jfor appendicitis a week or so ago,  is rapidly recovering and will be  released from the hospital in a few  days.' ���  C. D. Mackenzie, manager of the  Arlington Mining Company of Erie,  who was operated upon a week ago  for appendicitis and who is at the  Crickmay hospital, is still very low.  Their Standing  In regard to the present standing  of all the barristers who r hold the  titleoflirC. thegeneralopinion-is  that all Q. C.'s appointed by the  provincial government have since  the death of queen Victoria simply  the rank of barrister. The act  under which Q. C.'s were appointed  in the province of British Columbia  only provides for the- appointment  of Q. C.. and no provisions are made  for the continuance of the office.  Those appointed by the Dominion  government have had. their office  continued by. a general proclamation. As a result there are now  only three lawyers in the Kootenays  who hold the rank of K. C. They  are Mr. McAnn of Kaslo and the  two gentlemen of Nelsonwho formerly held the title of Q. O.'s under  the Dominion government. Before  those who: held a Q. C. .title, under  the provincial law can again retain'  their rank a new act- will have to  be passed._   ��� Court Presentations.
