London. March 17-Th* War Office
ha* rrceived the following from Lord
Kitchener at Pretoria:
Lord Methuen ha* bent mc a staff
officer with a dictated despatch, from
which it appears that certain partiou
Ian previously given were iusoourate
(The rear aereen of mounted troops
wan rushed and overwhelmed at
dawn. There wa* �� gap of a mile be
tween tl.e ox nnd the raule'couvoys.
Tht mounted support! to the rear ol
the screen, with Goneral Methuen, i.n
itttdiaicly reinforced by all available
mounted troops and section of 88th
battery, maintained themselves for an
hour, during which the convoy* were
closing up without disorder.
In the meantime 200 infantrymen
wer* being disposed by Lord Mithuen
to reiist the Boer snack, which ws*
ontfiuokitig lira left rear guard*. The
Boer* pressed the attack hard, aod the
mounted troops attempted to fall back
on th* infantry. They got completely
out of hand, carrying with them in the
rout tho bulk of the mounted troop*.
Two guns of the 38th battery were left
unprotected, but continued to fire until
���rery man, with th* exoeption of Lleet
Neihain, was hit Ma wot -called on
to turi-eusler, and upon refusing to ste
��p was) killed.
Lord Methuen, wilh 200 Northum-
boi I.i ml Fusilers and two guns, found
themselves isolated, but held on for
three-hours, and 100Lancashire*,With
10 mounted Cape police, held out
against repented attacks of Boar*
near ilie ivngons. By thtt time Lord
Methuen was wounded and the casualties wero exceedingly heavy among his
men. Their ammunition wa* expended an. surrender wa* mado about 9:80
in lhe morning.
Tha purty near the wagon* still held
out and did not give in nntil two guns
and a pom-pom were brought to bear
upon tbem about 10 o'clock, malting
their position untenable.
It i�� confirmed that most ot the Boer*
wore our khaki uniform!. Many also
wore onr bandolier*, And -even at clote
ijuarttrr* they could not bedistinuished
from oar own men.
It is clear that the infantry fought
well and that tha artillery kept up tbe
tradition* ot their regiment.
In addition lo the 40 member* of
Capo twlice already mentioned, a few
parties of imperial Yeomanry and
Capt Police continued to hold their
ground after panic had swept th* bulk
of th* mounted troop* oS th* -eld.
From othtr despatches it appears
thtt General Methuen wat ihot while
riding to bring up the monnted troopt,
and hie bore* wa* killed. After th*
surrender Gen. Delarey rode np anil
tae.ued Gen. Methuen with greatest
courtesy and consideration. Reordered bis return to Klerkedorp under car*
of hi* own nephew and a medioal
Aooording io ths Klertdorp correspondent of the Daily Mail the burgher*
were *o augry at thi* that, party of
them went ont and brought Gen. Methuen baok. Delarey, however, overruled th* objection* of the burgher*.

Winnipeg, Man., March 11 -Th-i
storm that raged over the provinc*
did n Jt moderate until yesterdsy attar-
noon. It waat th* worst in .ecent
years, it paralysed trade and travel,
not only in the city, but throughout
'the province generally. Railroad communication was practically suspended
in all portions of Manitoba. The highways were made impotable in th**
country districts, ,-ind tven in th* comparatively sheltered streets ef the city
locomotion wis a matter ot much difficulty. The street car service, slier a
long struggle with the elements, had
to succumb on Saturday, llueiness
was at a standstill, es none but thoro
whom imperut.vs necessity tailed Out

banked with drift*. In sumo places
ihj drifts were ten or twelve fe��t high.
Tbe strong wind, thick with blowing
snow, drove steadily down from the
north, shrieking among the overhand
wires, aud whistling shrilly round tho
angles of the buildings. For 48 hours
it blew without a lull, bul gradually
died slown yesterday afternoon, the
thermometer dropping as the wind decreased in violence. Weather prophets
say there will be a short cold snap for
a few day*, and that March, which

Strange Charges.
Dr. Keith * Writes Sensational

The correspondent of the Vic-oris

date ot March 12. says: Dr. H. W.
Keith, C. M.,-of Elko, B.C., has written to th* Vancouver World, charging
itriivo inefficiency iu the hospitals and
declaring incompetent officials ars
growing rich at the expense ot the
live* nnd health of soldiers.
Dr. Keith says the hospital aystem
Is generally bad, but tuke, for instance,
a divisional hospital. Tbe medical
officer in charge is a veterinary surgeon. Several Canadian troopers bave
suffered severely through bis ignorance. He could give many examples
bul confined himself to two. Trooper
Wilson, formerly of the GMden Era,
came to hospital for lurgical examination. The surgeon said there wae no.
thing wrong with him aod ordered him
to full duty. Wilson oonsulted a civilian dootor, who eent hiin to hospital
with a dangerout attaok of tnlarged
Uver and pneumonia.
Trooper Skryne, of Enderby, B.C.,
wat ordered to full duty, although he
had valvular trouble of lhe hetrt. Ht

ot the brigade, and wai promptly ssnt

The Canadians ol A division are doing everythisg in their power to be

In households wbero thero are children the
problem of shoes Is sometimes a serious

considering. An eicellent cement for this
purpose Is made by dissolving 10 parte of

a flying fragment of rock from . shot.

of snow for three mile* from tho river
has made transportation difficult,  and
recent Chinook look away almost
every I race of snow at the level of the
Peterborough." Wbat has become of
the wagon road from Toby creek to th*
river thit th* Paradise or* cannot be
hauled over it ? We were told by a
resident of the upper country tjjat the
Paradise management were refusing to
us* thi* road becauso It go** to Athal

thein to draw their or* through Peter,
bora' to the river, We can hardly
credit the *t*t*.n*nt a* it set ins loo
silly for common sen** consideration.
Wo would continue lo draw atten
tion to the fact that a rich mineral
district lies at our door, and one which
ha* until last summer been totally
overlooked. We refer to t he valley of
the Beaverfoot river, on a tributary ol
which, Ice river, remarkably rich mica
deposits ars located, and on which
there are also promising ledges of other
minerals. There ore many other tribu
��� tries of the Beaverfoot whose valley*
cut through the mineral belt, which
affords a promising field for the prospector. In addition to thi* tbe country abounds in good feed for horses,
making it an easy matter for protpsc
tors to keep their pack animal* in good
condition. Another condition thai
favor* ibo success of tlio district is
that it isa totally new ono and has not
received a "black eye," which fact adversely affects many promising mineral
hearing district* in our neighborhood
This, added to the fact lhat th* Beaverfoot is easy of access, should induce i.
larg* number of prosj**ctoi* to go is
this summer.
