"The schedule will be arranged so as to  arrive at Republic afiout .noon, where a  banquet will be served by the company.  After the banquet the train will return to  Grand Forks. The excursionists from the  latter city will be accompanied by a large  delegation of invited guests from Republic,  and a banquet will be served at Grand  Forks ih . thc evening- by the % company.  These free excursions and banquets are  given' to show in a measure tho company's  appreciation of the loyal support which the  citizens of Grand FoVks and Republic have  given the proposed railway from its inception.  "The entire equipment, of the road has  boen ordered and is being received from  the manufacturers as fasL as il~ can be  completed and sent west. There is now  equipment-for the lines strung all the way  from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, to Grand  Forks.

All rolling stock will bear  the company's talisman, 'Tlie.Kettle River  Valley Lines.'  "There were S15 men on our payroll last  month, but the work has advanced so  rapidly that this-iforce has been cut down  lo about-500 men within the past few  weeks. Traoklaying has been completed  to within a few miles of Curlew. ���Work' on  the bridge which will span the Kettle river  at Curlew is now* under full sway. A force  is engaged at each end of the bridge.  When completed it will bo a Howe truss  bridge, but the false work will be used until spring.'  "The road when completed will be Ity.  miles long. There will be but two important  stations between the terminals at Grand  Forks and Republic. Theso are Curlew and  Nelson, both iu the state of Washington.

"The scenic features of the road are excellent. Almost a eoii'iplete loop is mndo  west of Curlew and at Republic. AVhile n  3-V6 l,er cent grade is encountered for a distance of about six miles, it will hot interfere with trallic, as tho ore haul will be  down grade.

He contented that ouU  sidcrs should not be allowed to run this  sort of piece hotel.

SOUTH AMERICA  GERMANY'S   CLAIMS  ABE  STILL UNPAID.  MAKES DIREFUL PREDICTION  -i. ,  >> 'i  Shaft to Sunk on Snoashoe.  PHOENIX. Decembor 2!).���[Special to The  Tribune.;)���The manager of the Snowshoe  Cold & Copper Mines, Limited, operating  tho Snowshoe group of mines in this camp,  have decided to sink a main working shaft,  which will at once be put down lo tt depth  of 300 feet. The property has heretofore  boen worked through the original incline  prospecting shaft and through the railway  tun'nel, the latter so-called because the ore  on that part of the property was exposed  by the railway graders, when the Phoenix  branch of the Columbia & Western, which  passes over the property,- was built. Engineer Rannantyne of tho mine 'start is  now making surveys to determine the exact location of the new shaft, and as soon  as this is settled upon, work on the shaft  will be started and prosecuted as vigorously as possible. This shaft will be a two-  compartment one, both of which will be  used -solely for 'hoisting purposes, while thc  old incline shaft will be used as a manway.  for the pumps and for air to run the drills.  Tt is expected that the new 15-drill compressor, being manufactured by the Jenckes  Machine Company, will be completed and  delivered in the course of two months,  which will Rive the management all the  power needed for a long time to come. It  has been decided to give up wood as fuel,  and hercfifter coal will bo used for this  purpose. For some time past this mine has  beeu making occasional shipments of ore.  latterly to the Greenwood smelter, but  since the drop in copper, the two machines  used in stoping have been laid off, and no  more ore will bo shipped for the present  except lhat encountered in the course of  development. Half a dozen cars wero sent  out this weel<**.   Toronto Prohibition Talk.  TORONTO, December 30.���Rev. G. W.  Dewey, of Agnes street Methodist church,  in his sermon yesterday said hotel keepers were public servanls, and just, as essentia] as teachers, doctors, druggists, and  UinL the only way to protect the public  from this class of servants was to restrict hotol trade to hotels. Tlio preacher  declared  that  the  legitimate  business   of  People of Marsville Pleased.  Word was received yesterday by telegraph from Spokane by foreman McKenzie to push the work of getting out  the timbers for the trestle of the smelter site spurs, says the Marysville Tribune. No time will be lost in getting  the track ready so that supplies may be  brought right up to the many buildings  now under construction. Several cars  of cement and lire brick have reached  Cranbrook and will be brought up to  Marysville as soon as they can be handled. Tho gravel is being placed on the  ground for the concrete foundations,  and the trenches for the heavy foundations havo all been excavated, .and this  branch of the work will be under headway in a few days.  Thc frame for the sulphide house is  now going up. This building will be U0  feet high and is located just-east and  north of the roasting sheds. Work on  the other buildings is progressing rapidly, and all the structures are now assuming shape. The oflice building is  nearly, enclosed, and is going to be a  handsome addition to the company's  grounds. Bach week now makes a vast  difference in the appearance of the place,  and people who were familiar with the  conditions two weeks agoj would be  strangers now. .  Naturally the people of Marysville  are greatly pleased with "the condition  of affairs. They see in these great  structures rising up with such careful  precision the basis or prosperity for  'Marysville and this part of the district  and they know that with the smelter  building, a new railroad under construction up the St. Mary's valley, the  North Star and Sullivan properties running, and hundreds of men develop-  =ing=pi'operties=in=the=teiT-itor-y=tributar-y-  to this town, Marysville will be a good  place to tie to next summer and for the  future.

Arranging a Commission.  LONDON, December 30.���Commenting on the statement of its Washington  correspondent concerning the probability that secretary of state Hay and lord  Pauncefote, British ambassador at  /ashington are arranging a commission, in which the United States, Great  Britain, and Canada will be represented,  for the settlement of the Alaskan boundary and other outstanding difficulties  between tne countries in question, the  Daily Mail thinks that having secured  the Isthmian canal treaty without an  equivalent, the United States should now  prove rcat-'jnable. "Although it can  hardly be ht-ped," says the Daily Mail,  "that Canadian claims will be conceded  in their   ertirety,   perhaps   the   wisest  China Will Be Dismembered  NEW YORK, December 30.���Charles  P. Gammon, superintend ant of colporteurs for the American Bible Society in  Northern China, writes to the society  concerning the present situation in the  Chinese empire as follows:  "While at Shanghai, I observed that  the government was openly violating  the provisions of the protocol. The great  empire would shake off .European domination. Thousands of boat loads of  small arms and ammunition were passing weekly up the Yang Tse Kiang and  the arsenals were enlarged, and worked  day" and night. Cargoes of explosives  were being received and the dowager-  empress had issued instructions to all  officials to recruit the army, and also to  inform her as to the fighting strength  of each division and the time required  to - concentrate the forces at a given  point. There were and are many other  unpromising features,. all of which  weighed heavily upon the minds of those  interested. ' I must believe that the end  is not yet, and that within ten years,  and possibly within five, a war will ensue, the like of which the world has  never known. For centuries China has  been making repeated attempts to expel  the foreigners;- each time profiting by  past experiences; each time with more  power and success; each time better  equipped and better planned. She is now  preparing as never before, buying vast  quantities, of superior weapons and reorganizing her army on a correct basis.  Therefore, the next attempt will be gigantic in force and terrible in execution.  It will result in a vast upheaval and the  final dismemberment of this "empire at  a terrible cost."  Church Amalgamation Causes Boiting.  LONDON, December 30���The Island  of-Lewis, the northermost and largest  island of the outer Hebrides, has been  the scene of serious religious riots, ar-  rising from the union of, the Free and  the United Churches of Scotland. The  islanders refused to countenance" the alliance, and when the minister at Ness  joined the United Church they locked  him out of his church. A strong force  of police was sent over from the mainland to open the doors, whereupon the  constables drove them inside the building and bombarded them with rocks  until they capitulated and agreed to  leave the island. Every member of the  fjolice force was more or less seriously  wounded. It is probable that a detach-  ment_of_troops jwilLhe_sent.JtO-SUbdue  VENEZUELA MAY BE GIVEN MOBB  TIME FOB PURELY POLITICAL REASONS  the rioter a.  Sympathies Will Be With America  LONDON, Decembor SO.���Commenting  on the London Times statement from  Washington, that persons of considerable importance in-*oflicial circles there  profess to believe that war between the  United States and Germany is inevitable, the St. James Gazette says it does  not believe that such a disaster will be  allowed to occur over a dispute in regard to the debts of Venezuela to Germany, but that If it does there can be  no doubt that English sympathies will  be with America. At the same time, t.he  St. James Gazette expresses tho hope  that the United States will not allow  such states as Venezuela to gain the  impression that they can reckon on the  protection of the Monroeism if they  choose to repudiate their obligations to  Europe.  BERLIN, December 30.���The German  foreign office authorizes the Associated  Press to announce there is no truth  whatever in the dispatches from Caracas saying that the German minister  has left the Venezuelan capital after a  heated exchange of words with president Castro. The German charge d'affaires, herr Von Plj-yfim-Ballazzi, is  still at his post and is continuing negotiations with president Castro. There  has not been any question of breaking  off diplomatic relations with Venezuela:  The German minister to Venezuela, Dr.  O. Schmidt-Leda, who has been on a-va-  cation here, is now on his way to Caracas. \  The foreign ofiice. again solemnly reiterates, the statement that it does not  contemplate territorial acquisition in.  Venezuela. Replying ro Germany s utterances to the United States regarding  the former's plans in connection with  Venezuela, the foreign oflice here has  received an answer from secretary Hay  expressing full satisfaction *vith Germany's' position. Germany still hopes  to collect her claims peaceably.  The Tagblatt, this evening, prints a  double leaded cable from Washington  setting forth that the principal military  and naval authoriti��s there consider  that war between the United States and  Germany, sooner or' later, is inevitable.  The United States ambassador, Andrew  D. White, today informed the German  newspaper man who called at the embassy that the reports of the possibility  of war between the United States and  Germany were the "thinnest kind of  sensational nonsense." Not o.ne of the  authorities referred to in the" Tagblatt  dispatch, he added, Would under any circumstances disclose ViietTan opinion,"  least of all when the relations between  the two countries are so good as at pres-.  ent. "Moreover," said Mr. White, "president Roosevelt, the commander-in-  chief of both army and navy, it is well  known entertains personal predictions  for Germany, which have been made  known, not only officially to the government, but which have long been Known  among his friends. He studied in Germany, reads and loves German literature, and has a most sincere personal  respect for the Germon emperor. Any^  utterance of the kind alleged by an officer of either service would be sternly  rebuked by president Roosevelt."  ; longer to deal with the government, us ho  Is an accomplice In thc present revolution  and must be discharged. Tho resolution  further says that herr Knoop will bo expelled from Venezuela. Tronic over the German railway continues to be suspended,  it can be said on excellent authority thut  Germany s-contemplated naval demonstration against certain Venezuelan ports will  be postponed until the termination of the  present revolution against president Castro.

One ot the Kast Kents jumped up in  his bod, shook his list at Do Wet, anil  said: "You bloomin' Dutchman, you're  the cause of this!"  De Wet took the pipe from between  his teeth, and said: "You ought to  think yourself lucky that you are allowed to lie there in peace, when there  are better men than you and me out  there fighting. Wait till you get well,  and won't I lead you <v uance!"  Then turning to another Kast Kent,  he said:    "Can I do anything for you?"  Tommy looked at De Wet in surprise;  then he promptly replied, "Yes, sir;  give a pipeful of 'bacca and a match."  The Boer chief handed the soldier his  pouch and a box of matches. Then i>e  said: "You'll be released in a'day or  two."  A fortnight after the very same soldier was ongaged in the eternal chase  of De Wet and had the hard luck to be  captured a second time, after receiving  a nasty wound in the forehead, which  made him unconscious.  He awoke after a while, and found  De Wet binding his wound with his own  handkerchief.

Minneapolis newsboys were objects of the  charity of Mr. Peavey. Several years ago  he started a fund for them, and for every  dollar deposited by a newsboy Mr. Peavey  added another dollar.

TOLEDO, Ohio, December 30.���Fire tonight totally destroyed the Casino theater  at Maumee Bay, four miles below this city.  It was built at a cost of $50,000.  ONE RESULT OF LITIGATION  Good Chute of Ore Discovered.  The much-debated question of the  apex of the Slocan Star ledge has not  yet cost the Byron N. White Company  anything, says the Paystreak of Sandon.  It has a very profitable sequel. When  action was commenced last summer by  the Rabbit Paw people, claiming to have  the apex on the Rabbit Paw and ileber  Fraction, "the White "company set to  work to prove by exploration that they  have the apex on the Silversmith  ground. A crosscut tunnel was run in  GO feet to strike the ledge and a drift  run to the west. This drift is now in 'Z00  feet and shows one of the prettiest ore  chutes ever opened in the Slocan country. It is 24 inches wide in the face and  carries average assays of 1500 ounces ol  silver, to ..the. ton. ..The ore- is .steel,  galena and grey copper, carrying low  percentages in lead. The showing is at  a depth of 150 feet.  Although a surface showing of clean  ore was long known to exist on the  Silversmith, this claim has not, until  recently, received much: attention by^he  -V tii te company. Added to the enormous  ore reserves already blocked out in the  Slocan Star and Slocan King ground,  the opening up of this strike on tho  Silversmith will place the Byron N.  White properties away ahead of any of  the other mines of the camp and give  it rank among the best silver-lead mines  of the world.  On the 20th of December the Byron  V. White Company added one more to  its long list of dividends, disbursing  $25,000 to its shareholders. This brings  the total dividends to date up to the  handsome sum of ?3S5,000.  The f-'.'ce at the mine remains stati  onery, about"Ti5_strong, and~50 tons of  ore are sent down the hill every day.  The roads are in excellent condition and  the heavy output will be maintained indefinitely.

LONDON, December 30.���A dispatch to a  news agoncv from Rome says that thc  popo is subject to serious fainting fits.  VlCrOK.'A, December 30.���-This week  so far as politics is concerned, has nat-'  urally been a quiet one, yet a distinct  undercurrent of disappointment has be- -  come apparent  amongst many  of Air. '  Bodwell's   most   interested   supporters,  'ine failure of the government to pre-  cipitate an immediate appeal to the con-"  stitueucy bus  upset the very juvenile  plan thev   had   conceived   of  carrying  Victoria ci'y by a coup-de-main, and, incidentally/'their  chimerical   scheme to  hail Mr. Pcdwell as the leader of the   ,  Liberals, when   the psychological   moment arrived.   By this double coup, the -  "Lictle JLibeials" .(for this is now.'tUe'-  sobriquet bestowed upon  that -narrow"  segment of the party who are support-'  ing the lanj leader of the  V. V. & B.  campaign) hoped to be.able to perpetu-  ate the malign influence which in tho-  past they had exercised at Ottawa, to the  exclusion of Mainland recognition arid' ;  to the detriment of the province as'"a  whole they are dismayed at the chill- -'  ing indifference displayed in Mr. Bod-,  well's candidature by the people of the,  Kootenays and the lower Mainland, arid  they feel that Mr. Bodwell's ability to -  reward   their   disinterested   patriotism.'"  will be curtailed to a distressing extent,  unless as leader he can dictate the pol-_  icy of the government in power.   A" few "-  of his .niDrt. reckless advisers are, there- ���>'  fore, laying wires to control the Liberal  convention to be held in Vancouver ,on  January aotn, in the nope of raising a'  Bodwell n.tom.   Their hopes in this di-   *  rection have promptly been dissipated  by  the  local   Liberal   leaders,   Messrs.  Riley     and   "Drury,     who     recognize  thoroughly that the party can'now.well  afford to let the "Little Liberals" work %*  out their own salvation. ���   _  As .a matter of fact, there Js a ,dis-,��� ���*:  tinct undei standing between the provincial and Dominion governments that  local an-!, federal matters shall be kept  severely sc] srate, and despite the ill-  advisec' attempts of senator Templeman  to draw the Dominion authorities into  this local fight, the compact will *e  faithfully kept on both sides. As a result George Riley will be returned unopposed to 'the Dominion house; Mr.  Bodwell will be handsomely turned down'  by the electors of Victoria city, and the  province oi British Columbia freed from  the machinations of the "Little Liberal"  clique, win receive fitting recognition'  from tl'C government in power at Ottawa.  It is ���*(.��> improbable that the provincial election forVictoria city will take  place as tarly as expected. The arran-  gcaiciit a', uve alluded to removes the  necessity, uferred to last week, of cora-  nelling good faith from  the quai-allies   of the fiverrment, and theie is now  little oi (��� .-on but that R. L. Drury will  be th'1 grve-nment candidate. Time also  is dpnJ.'Ljc harshly with Mr. Bodwell's  chancn?. The revelations made in tha  internecine war between the V. V. & 13.  and t!:c Grand Forks corporations havo  altered ;>ul uc opinion considerably, and  the ?2-iH't0 subsidy asked tor by Mr.  12oriv.*-:i dining the last session of the  legislatinc is becoming a question of  much puli'jc- interest. Thc public wish  to know \t.-w it is that Ja.nes J. Hill,  who wan to anxious tliat the provinco  of Ui)'.i��h Columbia shoulJ subsidize  thf. V. V. te 15. railway to this extent  la?i ei'ii'n'pz can uow lind tune to mako  affidavits whose contents Aim at the  very ex-nence of thc V. V. & lil. chaiter.  The c.iuii.aign dodger which up to  Sf tunlny last came out daily in support  of Mr. Bouwcll, has been cousplcuous  ty its a,* i net during the past week, so  thc sob- pd.ocacy of his cause rests now  upon the si oulders of the Times. As tho  latter paper lets "1 dare not wait upon I  would," it is not satisfying Mr. Bodwell'3  supporters, whilst it is bitterly otfend-  ini*: the greaf majority of the party who  iu the r-'tst regarded it as the local exponent of Liberal opinion.  The amoition of a local editor also  iweheil a jevere blow during the past  week. Du.'rous of contesting the Vic-  tori.\ Dominion election as an independent Liberal, he made tentative inquiries  of several prominent politicians as to  his chances. The Liberals he met astonished him by declaring that they al- '  way* refolded him as a Conservative,  and Jie 'Conservatives made it worse by  suggesting that if they supported a Liberal at all. it would have to be one who  had some inlluence at Ottawa.

NANAIMO, December 30.���The Protection Island shaft and workings wero  closed on Saturday evening for an indefinite period, and henceforth all tha  coal lakcn out in the underground  workings in that direction will be taken  up throuth shaft No. 1. The closing oC  J-rotectioa shaft and workings will  throw out of employment a considerable  number of men, both in tlie mining and  cnginuumg departments.

Old Hiker heard of his  visit and determined to "salt" a mine for  him. He seeded the gold dust ln thick and  then Introduced the canny Scotchman to  the mine. A pick, pan and shovel were  presented to Alick that he might try for  himself, and he prospected in every spot  where Hiker recommended him to test.  Nothing could be more satisfactory than  the *��� returns.-Every pan that was tried produced four or five dollars, which he deposited In  a tin  tobacco box  of his own.  "Well," said the impatient seller, at last,  "I guess you've given it a pretty good sifting. How d'ye like it?"  "Vera weel, vera, weel," answered Alick.  looking- at" the' contents of his box. "And  what may be your price now, clear cash?"  "Six thousand dollars, ne'er a. red less,"  said  the  hopeful   'Salter.'  "It's a pretty penny, a vera -pretty penny, but I'll no gainsay 't prospect's guid.  But there's one bit of a phenomenon I can-  na get through my pate: How did Tou-  lumne gold get stuck in here?":  Hiker saw at once tliat he was "sold,"  and was himself the victim. He-indignantly demanded the contents of the tobacco  bos.  "Dinna try tliat, dinna try that." said  Alick. "You will never handle a micklo of  it. and more, I'll advise you as a freen to  pick up your duds and tramp, for twa  hours fra now the boys will all know it,  and ye'll have a hempen cravat on your  scrag of a neck before sundown, if they  can lay their cloots on you."  The foiled rascal knew that Alick spoke  the truth, and he decamped without delay.  What Nelson wants is young men in  charge of her business affairs. Young  men are seldom despondent. They always look on the cheerful side of things.  They have faith in themselves. This  year Nelson has had pessimists in control. Men who are on the .down-grade  - in life cannot be expected to have either  faith in themselves or in the community in which they live. Impoverished  by the mistakes they have made, they  believe there is nothing in the future  but frequent periods of depression. They  are without hope. Put young men in  control and their enthusiasm will be  contagious. Nelson will once again become the most cheerful spot in all British Columbia. Industries will be  started that will_lmake payrolls,.  and improvements will be commenced that will give men employment. No houses will be empty and  there will be need for new ones. Confidence will beget coniidence. Elect a  young man mayor of Nelson and back  him up by a council made up of young  men, and the . mistakes made by the  present council will be buried in oblivion, along with thc men who made  them.

The government intends to send  one or two other small warships to reinforce tho present German squadron in the  Caribbean sea. The additions to Germany's  naval, squadron in the Caribbean .will-not  bo suliicient to give rise to suspicions  among the people'of the United States that  Germany meditates anything beyond the  claims due German subjects. The German  government desires, beyond anything else  in this matter, to avoid ��� disturbing .-th*  government or the people of the United  States. The German newspapers published  today contain articles full *of expressions  of this kind, and many of these suggestions  are so near alike that it is easy to infer  their utterance was suggested by the government. A remarkable thing is the fact  that there is not a single unkind expression  towards the United States in any of this  newspaper comment. Even the dispatch  from Washington to a New York newspaper, printed yesterday, to the effpet that  persons of-importance in-the war and navy  departments consider war between Germany and lhe United States to be inevitable, has been reproduced everywhere  throughout Germany, is discussed coollv,  and for the most part treated with incredulity. - * -   ���    -   Prominent Knisftt of Pythias Dead  BENTON HART-tbi*."'

From all points come protests against  the holding of a .Liberal convention at  Vancouver on the lines proposed by the  provincial executive of the narty.   This  does not'hode good to the party, for If  its leaders insist on a policy that does  not meet with the approval of the rank  and ilie, the party.cannot hope to win  in a contest.   The leaders at the Coast  do not want to conduct ah election ou  party lines.   They want to gain power  through forming combinations that will  make them independent of a man named  .Joseph Martin, who today is the strong-  est .Liberal in the province.    His personal   following  is double   that   of aU  such would-be leaders   as   Templeman,  Bodwell, and Davis combined, and they  know it, hence their attempts to stifle  the party's wishes in a convention made  up of delegates in no sense representative of the party.

Wilson has given perhaps  the most startling ana romantic record  of the devious ways of the Boer government in the days before the war that  has ever seen light.    He writes as one.  knowing all the inner secrets of that oligarchy in which Mr. Kruger was tha  ruling spirit; for he was himself, curiously   enough   to relate, a   Transvaal  government official, holding the reponsi-  ble post of gold commissioner of the  first South   African , goldfield,   and   in  constant communication   with   the   ex-  president.  A Cape Colonist of English descent, he  early in life went to the El Dorado of  the Transvaal, apparently iu 1SS-1.   The  country was then bankrupt    Mr. Kruger 'had   just   left   for   Europe,   after  drawing   out   of   the   Standard    Bank  ��2000 of the  ��2400  that stood  to the  credit ol* tlie" Boer government.   It was  Mr. AVilson wlio,  by his own account,  in the face of every impediment,������provided for the wants of the Uoer...exchequer  by developing the De Knap goldfields.  When the news tliat a rich reef ������had  been discovered,  he journeyed to Pretoria to induce the authorities to pro-  ���"claim the'district a goldfield.   When he  readied the presidency Mr. Kruger was  out..'   "lie returned shortly, carrying a  rOl! of tobacco. As ho presented me with  part of it lie remarked, 'See what our  burghers have come to, I've just bought  this ten-pound   roll   of   tobacco   for a  shilling, and we have just half a crown-  in the Standard Bank to  keep .our account open.' "  The opening of the gold field was sanctioned,   but* in ��� .'such*"a manner that  it  might be possible to bleed  \'_ie. diggers  in .the future, and with the proviso, contrary to' the convention of London, the  ink on which w'as* scarcely   dry,  that  "****'- -**I)ui'gners~aniF'Al'ricans were, to be given  the benefit of all privileges aud adyan-  *",.   ta^es. >   * . .........  A curious account is given of the  then president's first visit to the gold-  field. He was in very bad humor, and  the manner in which the diggers received him added to his displeasure. "Tlie  remarks of the crowd on the personal  appearance of the president," says tho  author, "were not calculated to remove  the bad impression he."had' formed of  them. It must be admitted that the  dirty, travel-stained look of his honor  hardly harmonized with the popular  idea as to what a state president ought  to Jook like. "The criticisms were of tiie  brutally free and jocular character peculiar to rough crowds." Tlie Utilanders  afterwards paid dearly l'or their freedom  of tongue.  Of the Boer administration, Mr. Wilson has many stories to tell which illus-  =ti'ate=i ts=i ntolerab I c^cl ish on es t-y-and*=cor-=  ruption. Almost any crime could be  committed by a burgher \Vith impunity,  provided that the person who suffered  by the crime was an Englishman or a  Kaffir. Two Boers named Goetzee, for  instance, murdered and robbed a prospector named Close. They were not  even arrested for the crime, and when  months or years afterwards Dr. Leyds  moved in tlie matter and imprisoned  one of them, the Transvaal government,  liberated him at once, "A record, however brief." says the author, "of similar crimes committed in the Transvaal  during the past twenty years, would  stagger humanity.' "  Of that "noble peasant," Mr. Kruger.,  the writer's opinion is in the highest  degree unfavorable. "If I were asked  to name the most striking characteristics of Paul Kruger, they would be  selfishness and indifference to the interests of his country as distnet from the  interests of the individual." Even the  Boer farmers whom ho professed to reward with special favor had no cause  to feel gratitude toward him. He was  venal to excess. "The benefit of the  people" was a phrase often in his mouth,  but its real meaning was "the benefit  of Paul Kruger & Company, Limited."  With the connivance of tho raad, he  managed to acquire a vast area of land,  in all 000,000 acres, at an outlay of ��500.  Besides this, he and his nominees had  other immense holdings, dishonestly obtained for the most part, so that Mr.  Wilson states that it is "safe to say that  ho owned a larger amount of land than  any private individual in the world."  It remains to be seen if he will be allowed to retain his plunder, or whether  tlie British administration will, as it has  every right to do, compel him to disgorge.  He has taken ample   precautious to  place himself beyond the reach of want.  "To my knowledge, he had ��700,000 in  Java, where it was invested under the  advice of Dr. Leyds, who was supposed  to be an authority on the Dutch East  Indies.   Statements made to mo by per-  \  sons in a position to know justify me  ' '*in assessing the actual  cash value of  his possessions at two and a half millions * * * The very probable discovery  of gold on any of his numerous farms  J'might at any time have increased  his  ''���-. wealth to an enormous extent, so thit  there are few persons of whom it may  be said with gi4ater truth than of Paul  Kruger that he possesses the poten^l-  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.

HOLT,  Manager Nelson Branch.  ities of wealth beyond the most extravagant dreams." ���'  o Yet he would never contribute a subscription to his indigent burghers. In  the Malaboch campaign the Boers on  commando were suffering great privations, and a fund-to provide them with  comforts was raised, at Pretoria. Mr.  Kruger's contribution was "one bag of  tobacco, worth at the outside 30s." And  even the tobacco was <jnly promised at  some future date, which, needless" to  say, never arrived.  On the potentalities of the Transvaal  Mr. Wilson writes in the most glowing  terms. "An unexplored treasure house"  is his phrase for the country. There are  unknown, or almost unknown and quite  unworked deposits of gold, silver, copper, tin, arsenic, platiniim, diamonds,  opals, and, in short, practically every  metal or mineral of value. And it is a  man familiar with the gold fields and  the country who thus speaks. He himself states that he knows of line reefs  which were abandoned as unproductive  in- the earlier days of the mining industry, before the cyanide process enabled ores assaying only in pennyweights to be worked with p.roiit.

He states that  an agreement on the lines of The-Hague  conference appears to  be favorable by  the majority of the republics, and that  this probaply will be the basis of action  to he taken by the congress.   He also  states that the republics''which*** desira  to get further than The Hague agreement very likely will sign an independent convention for compulsory arbitration. .-��The congress'is -rapidly drawing  to  a close and  another fortnight will  probably bring a final adjournment. '  ��� WASHINGTON,    December   30.���The  understanding here is that the following  countries are favorable   to   arbitration  according to The Hague plan, namely,  the United States, Mexico, Chili, Colombia, Ecuador, Hayti, "Nicaragua, Salvador, Costa Rica, and Honduras.   There  is some doubt as'.to Brazil and Guata-  mela, but the latter is expected to join  the  other Central American  countries  in favor of non-compulsory arbitration.  The countries which   sign  an independent convention for compulsory arbitration are Argentina, Venezuela, San Domingo, Peru, Boliva, Uruguay, and Paraguay.

The position of San Domingo grows out  of her boundary difficulty with Hayti.  This was referred to the pope, but as  satisfactory progress has not been  made, San Domingo now wants compulsory arbitration. In case xhe Hague  Convention is accepted as the basis of  an agreement, it will provide means and  a moral inlluenco for adjusting various  differences by arbitration, and yet each  country will he left free to determine  whether arbitration shall be applied to  any case in which it is concerned.

There are twenty-three stakes for the  spring and full mooting, and ono, the Futurity, l'or 1U0-I. All the stakes close on January 2nd, 1!W2. The value of the stakes will  amount to $250,000. To each stake Is added  a large amount of money. In several of the  events the sums added have been Increased.  When the entries are received they will be  worth more money in the aggregate than  any similar number of stakes offered by  any racing association in this country.  The Futurity stakes of 1904 will probably  be the richest of that kind in the world,  and as all the breeders have been entering the mares freely of late, the race promises to reach the high-water mark of $80,-  000 in-value. This race, combined with the  twcnty-lhree stakes for 1902, will be worth  in the aggregate the groat sum of $191,000.  Besides these stakes, there will be other-  night sweepstakes, which will be worth  $00,000 more.   Express Strong Disapproval.

The public, under the impression that druggists  and their clerks never sleep, are in the  habit of calling at all hours for articles  that are not always necessary to prolone  lit a iu an emergency. Hereafter the drug  stores in Nelson will close their places of  business at 9 o'clock p. ni., except on Saturdays and days immediately preceding  public holidays. This is a move in the right  direction.       ��  Bad Politics.  Joe Martin has the Coast Liberal machinists badly scared They want a coiuention  to declaie Bodwell provincial leader, but  they are afraid to call one that is on the  square lor fear that Joe will capture it.  These t_rninciii statesmen ��� LibeiaU for  ie\enue only���Imac put up a scheme to beat  Joe. They ha\e in their mind's eye a convention at which a retinue ol belt-appointed  llunkcy delegates Irom Victoila will ha\ e  a m.ijoiity vote, and m Older to woik the  scheme out piopeily they have invited Lib-  eial clubs liom iuteiior points to send  delegates on such a basis of repiosenta-  tion as would not pcimil them to out-vote  the ilunkica  This looks bad Rumor has it that IS. V.  Bodwell is to get $50,000 it ho puts the V  V As ifl bonus through It is also leported  that .the Ottawa government will take gojd  rare of Bodwell 11 he is elected in Victoria  The idea is like this If Dunsinuli cannot  contiol a inajouty when the house meets  Joly will simply lue him and, without the  lounnlity of an election, call on Bodwell.  In return for such fa\ors Bodwell will be  expected to hand ovei a solid Liberal party  ioi Dominion pui poses as well as provincial The only question is Bodwell s abilitv  to deliver the goods To sort of establish  himselt, Bodwell wants to call a ilunkey  coiuention and name himself leader  This kind of politics may look good lo  professionals, hacks and grafters, but it  looks like petty larceny to the people who  ha\ o the votes The small cunning which  will pacic a convention to keep it fiom being repiesentative can nevei provide biains  for a leader. Joe Martin is a better man  with the people today than he ever was,  and all these convention-stulHng self-appointed Liberal superiorities will ne\ej-  keep him down. They should know that  by now. They have spent barrels of money  to delcat him and they have declared him  dead thiough every purchasable newspaper  and from every public platform in British Columbia, but if Joe's mangled ic-  malns lay a thousand feet beneath a Slocan miow slide and his ghost appeared at  this Libeial convention and swore on a  stack ol bibles from here to Three Forks  that he was really dead those meicenarv  Coast politicians would carefully search  that ghost to see it it had not a bunch ot  popular is=ucs cached somewhere about its  clothes ���Sandon Paystreak.  to  to  to  QX  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  Portland Cement  J he Brick  Fire Clay-  Sheet Iron  T Rails  Ore Cars  Blowers  Exhausters  Pumps  Graniteware  ���Tinware  HARDWARE AND IRON MERCHANTS  HEATING STOVES  COOKING STOVES  AND" RANGES  STORES AT  to  to           m   n �� NELSON, B.
