BRITISHJ.OSSES
Casualty List ip South Africa Growing Longer.
BOERS FIGHTING DESPERATELY
The Fight at Tafel Kop-Damant's
Horse Capture the Kopje—Hard
Fighting Everywhere.
London, Dec. 23.— Lord Kitchener cables reportsof sharp fighting.
The engagements occurred,December 18th, 19th and 20th at points
widely apart. The casualties, so
far at known aggregate about 150
equally divided, but heavy British
losseB, the totals of which have not
been reported, have occured in the
Transvaal.
In the eastern part of the Transvaal, Colonel MacKenzie attacked
Commandent Smit's force of Boers
at Lake Banagaher, on December
20th and killed six and oaptured
16 of the enemy. Commandant
Smit escaped.
A force of Boers, during the
night of December 19th attacked
the British post at Elandspruit
but the burghers were driven off
leaving eight men killed, including Commandant Kriese. Field
Cornet Mahon, who was wounded,
and three other wounded men were
also left on the field. The British
casualties were seven men killed
and six officer* and 18 men wounded.
In all the encounters recently
reported the Boers charged determinedly and in overwhelming
numbers. The British casualties
have been very severe.
In the fight at Tafel Kop the
Boers dressed as British yeomanry,
engaged in a spendid race with
thS- British; in the attempt to be
first in gaining the crest of the
kopje. The Boers gained the summit first, and fired on the single
troop of Damant's horse which took
in the race for tbe kopje. These
troopers took advantage of thc small
amount of cover available, immediately below the Boers and fought
until all but four of them were
killed or wounded. By that time
reinforcements of Damant's horse
came up and charged and oaptured
the kopje.

CHRISTMAS.
"Glory to God in the highest
and on earth, peace to men of good
will."
To its readers, the Evening
World extends very heartily the
sermon's greetings.
For at least one day in the year
we may all forget that any differences exist.
That every one may have a
Merry Christmas tomorrow, and
that 1902 may prove a happy end
prosperous year for us all, is tho
earnest wish of the publishers of
this newspaper. Good luck all
round.
There will only one toast drunk
tomorrow. "Absent friends"—tlie
world over, above and ueath the
sod. Unhappy indeed is the man
or woman who stands so alone in
this transitory life that he or she
cannot think of at least one heart
that would beat quicker for being
remembered on Christmas night.
Acquaintances we all have but
—"friends"—well that's different,
and here's to them.
SCHWAB'S CONTENTION.
Charles M. Schwab, the president of the United States Steel
Corporation, is already on record
regarding the probable results of
the recent conference in New York
between labor and capital, and at
Chicago last week Mr. Schwab
went into the "trust" question before a meeting a* the Banker's Club.
He declares the trust is a dead
issue, and that consolidation is
quite another matter.
Mr. Schwab, aaid:
" Before a company of bankers it
is, of course, unnecessary to defend
the principles of consolidation,"
said Mr, Schwab, "Men in you business are of necessity too well
grounded in industrial science to
be affected by the timorous advocates of old-line methods or the
silly outcry against consolidation
as 'trusts.' No one has a clearer
appreciation than myself of the
evil that lurked in the 'trust'
scheme. I say 'lurked' advisedly,
because the trust is a dead business
proposition with which we will
never again be troubled. It waB an
ex periment, and to that end served
its purpose. But it was founded
on misconception and prompted
along lines of self-destruction.
"Its fundamental principles were
the restriction of trade,the increase
of priceB and the throttling of competition—a trinity that would
wreck any proposition, business,
political or social. Thc consolidation as organized today has for
its guiding line the very opposite
oi this. Instead of restricting trade
it expands trade by creating new
avenues and reducing the price of
the commodities which il produces.
It is enabled to do this because the
chief advantage of consolidation is
tbe reduction in the cost of articles
produced."
It will be seen that the president
of the big steel consolidation cordially agrees to the principle of
labor consolidation and he is not
so foolish as to openly advocate the
suppression of labor unions.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
His Worship Mayor Lalonde,
today banded the Woim.h a detailed statement of civic receipts and
expenditures for the current year
up to the 21st December. The
statement iB a somewhat lengthy
one but the bulk of it will appear
in the next issue of the Woki.d.
We aro obliged for the statement
and think that citizenB generally
will be glad to peruse the document. .
The effect on the human race
produced by life in congested centres of population has led Earl
Grey to make the suggestion that
there should be a stocktaking of
national physique In a letter
to the Times recently on the subject
he says:—"Two great facts stand
out- prominently—(1) That the
population reared in the sunless
shims of oursmoke enveloped cities
unless reinforced by marriage with
men and women born and reared
in God's .fresh air, deteriorate
quickly to such an extent that the
third generation is either sterile,
or at best capable or giving birth
to an infirm and rickety posterity.
(2) That the human reservoirs
in the country, on which the towns
depend for the maintenance of
their stamina and vigor, are daily
growing lower, and before long,
unless preBent tendencies are
changed, will become absolutely
dry."

RELIEF.
There is nothing like Asthmalene,
ft brings instant relief, even in the
worst cases. It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. 0. F. WELL8, of Villa
Ridge, 111., says: "Your trial bottle of
Asthmalene received in good condition.
I cannot tell vou how thankful I feel
for the good derived from it. I was a
slave, chained with putrid sore throat
and Asthma for ten years. I despaired
of ever being cured. I saw your advertisement for the eure of this dreadful
and tormenting disease, Asthma, nnd
thought you bad overspoken yourselves,
but resolved to give it a trial. To my
astonishment, the trial acted like S
chaim.   Send me a full size bottle."
Rev. Dr. Morris Wechsler,
Rabbi of the Cong. Bnai Israel.
New York, Jan. 3, igoi.
Drs. Taft Bros', Medicine Co.,
Gentlemen: Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy f >r Asthma and Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates
all troubles which combine with Asthma. Its success is astonishing and
wonderful.
After having it carefully analyzed, we can state that Asthmalene conta'ns no
opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.   Very truly yours,
REV. DR. MORRIS WECHSLER.
-    _ .. Avon Springs, N. Y„ Feb. 1,1901.
Dr. Taut Bros. Mrdicinr Co.
Gentlemen: I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has been
afflicted with spasmodic asthma for the past 12 years. -Having exhausted my own
skill as well as many others, I chanced to eee yonr sign upon your windows on
130th street, New York, I at once obiaired a bottle of Asthmalene. My wife
commenced taking it about the firs, of November. I very soon noticed a radical
improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared and she is entirely free from all symtoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, 0. D. PHELPS, M. D.
Db, Taft Bros. Mkdicine Co. Feb. 5, 1001.
Gentlemen: I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numerous remedies, but they have all failed, I ran across your advertisement and started with a trial bottle. I found relief at once. I have since purchased your full
size bottle, and I am ever grateful. I have a family of four children, and for six
years was unable to work. I am now in the best of health and am doing business
every day.   This testimony you can make such use of as you see fit.
