a long time from Rhodesia, conies in

A later edition of The Pall Mall Gn
sette announces the death of Genera
��� '..I"' ns, hot this report hns not beer
confirmed. To u gentleman, who, in
behalf of Lady Bymons, inquired at ii
late hour this   evening   regarding  the
Pull Mull Gazette's  announcement,  a
responsible offioial of the Win Oflici
stated that no fresh advices had been
received since the dispatch receivei
Stating that General SynionB' condition was slightly improved. The
statomunt of the British losses at Glencoe wns posted Into this afternoon aim
in au incredibly short time the lobbies
of the building were crowded to their
utmost capacity. Many n fervent
"Thank God" was uttered by thosi
who turned uway without finding iir
the list of names, one thev dreaded to
see, and occasionally a deep soh would
escape from some strong man, bnt
otherwise the silence of the impressive
scene was unbroken.
London, Oct, 21.���Tho startling developments of the weak form a vivid
contrast to that wearisome period of
proornstination and suspense which
preceded tho outbreak of wur.
The thrilling scene iu the House of
< 'ommons of a Member of the  Cabinet
(Midnight)��� making an impassioned defonoe of
his honesty against tho imputation of
deliberately involving England in war,
the far-reaching significance of the intimation by the cnutious Prime Minister, that England rule throughout the
whole of South Africa must be absolute
and many other striking points in
an epoo-makiug week havo been almost
entirely obscured by the overwhelmn-
ing interest, of the sharp, rafagro bulletin bearing date, at Ladysinitb, tbat
tells of victory, and how many died to
gain it. Historians may dismiss as
insignificant the military operations
which have so for marked tho progress
of the war, but for the people of England, these aud those of Hie immediate
future, have transcendental importance. Glencoe and Ladysrnith irrest-
lbly rivet national attention, and when
the average Britisher tires of lauding
the pluck that won Friday's batrle,and
still keeps tbe flag flying over Mafeking, he reverts to the universal
query: "What will White do next?"
Sir Redvers Buller, last week's
ideal, has almost passed out of the
popular mind, although that genera],
despite the fact that he was in mid-
ocean, aud unaware what befell the
Boers at Glencoe, appears to bo the
main factor in the situation. The
Associated Press is reliably informed
that bis last act before leaving, was to
'���able Sir George White, forbidding
any British advance pending the arrival of the army corps. It is understood in army oircles, that General
White believed himself quite strong
enough to advance through Laing's
Nek. Sir Buller's prohibition, if carried out, resolves all prognostication
into the simple statement, that upon
he extent of Boer aggression depends
Llio number aud nature of the nrrauge-
nents that are to mark the next
month's fighting.
Probably the Boer movement will
ne curbed by the defeat at Glencoe,
nt judging from the determination
f the Boer forces tbat they will sooner
r later, anyway, before Buller's corps
���ake the field, return to the fray with
���odoubled aggressiveness, iu a des-
wrate attempt to break tho backbone
if General White's force, having previously endeavored to weaken it by
feint and flank movements. Such a
imposition regarding the Boer plans
is based upon the belief that Com-
nandant Joubert's main object is to
break up or ront White's command be-
i'ore the British reinforcements arrive
But it is possible the wily Boer gen-
nral has carefully concealed any strategic moves, which he intends to carry
nit in nn unexpected direction und thai
the attack upon White on Friday, was
merely intended to deceive the Britisli
as to the main ohjoot. The Associated
Press learns thnt the plans nf Sir Buller, subject to the finding on his ar
rival, that the the complexion of the
campaign is not entirely changed, are
io have divisions, each a little army
in itself, and each capable of meeting
tho full strength of the Boers. As his
forces will exceed 80,000 men, this is
regarded ns feasiblo. With three arm
ies he intends to invade tho Transvaal
from different points, personally lend-
iug the prinoipal force through tho
Free State sending the other to hold
Natal. Expert military opinion as
ascertained by the Associated Press, is
inclined to favor a single line of operations unless the invaders has tremen
dous preponderance of strength. Although few are willing to oriticiso
Buller's admittetd military genius,
without knowledge of the information
upou which ha has bused bis estimate
of the Boer forces, there is a growing
feeling that the war will eventually
resolve into a guerilla campaign, aud
many references are made in this connection to tbe progress of tho American forces in the Philippines.
London, Oct. 21.���The paramount
chief of the BasntoB, according to a
d spatch from Capetown, has asked
permission to assemble the othor Bas-
uto chiefs with a view of inviting
them to pledge loyalty to the Queen.
This is supposed to be u forerunner of
a Basuto movement, and the Orange
Free State Bnrghers, near the Basuto
border, are said to be in a state of
consternation, fearing that at any moment the Basutos, dospito Imperial instructions to the contrary, will take
the field aud invade the Free State.
London, Oct. 21.���Tne Outlook publishes a dispatch from Capetown dated
yesterday, alleging that 'he Boers are
not likely to make any further consid
erable offensive movement. The correspondent sajs:."They are utterly
demoralized and the men refuse to take
risks. They are getting to distrust
General Joubert. The artillery is badly
handicapped and the administration
department is revealing material de-
feots. Mr. Schreiner, the Cape Premier, is every day being brought more
within the line of the policy of Sir
Frederick Buller, British Commissioner in South Africa, aud Governor of
Cape Colony, and his resignation is not
now desired, us the Premier's present
attitude is considered as a safeguard
against Dutch disaffection.
London, Oot. 21. ���The War Office is
still besieged late tonight by anxious
inquirers, but the officials have no further news from Glencoe. Some anxiety is beginning to be felt with re-
gird to tbe 18th Hussars, whose return
from their pursuit of the Boers has not
yet been officially notified to tbe War
Office. Lady bymons received a message this afternoon, that her husband
was slightly better.
Reliable news from South Africa is
meagre, the wires being so overloaded
with official dispatches that others filter through in the slowest possible
manner. The latest advices from Capetown show that all was well at Kimberley on Wednesday, and Major
Ohamier made a sortie with a recon-
noitering partv nnd some gnus on
heard an armored train. After a few
shots had been exchanged the Bnrghers
fled. There were no casualties on the
Biitish side.
Tho police garrisons of Fourteen
Streams and Taungs have arrived at
Kimberley. Everything tends to confirm the statement that Colonel Baden-
Powell temporarily worsted the Boers
at Mafeking, and it appears true that
upward of 300 wounded Boers have
arrived nt Johannesburg. The Boers,
however, appear to have occupied the
scene of the fighting, as an attempt
to recover tho"bodies of the British
failed,owing, it is alleged, to the Boers
refusing to recognize the Red Cross
flag. The news from Glencoe aroused
immense enthusiasm among the British
residents of Oape Colony, and this is
rapidly spreading to Basutoland,where
it is feared it will further increase the
desiro of the natives to participate in
the operations against the Boers.
London, Oot. 22. ���A special dispatch
from Capetown states that a message
has been received from Kimberley
saving that Cecil Rhodes has been
urged to leave the town, bnt refuses to
do so,being determined to see the thing
through.
Vieuna, Oct. 21.���The victory won
at Glencoe camp was a vast surprise
to a number of critics of the British
army who asserted that whilo Tommy
Atkins might slaughter badly armed
barbarians, he was no match for a civilised enemy. Tne importance of the
victory is fully recognized as exercising a decisive influeuco on the whole
campaign.
RIOTS IN BURMAH.
Rangoon, Britisli Burmah, Oct. 21
���Serious riots have broken out in
Lower Chidwin, district of Burmah.
A number of Sopoys of the Karr military police, who had been prohibited
from attending tho Burmese theater,
broke bounds on Saturday and entered
the theutor, attacking a number of
English officers, severely wounding
four. The Sepoys are dissatisfied with
their long detention iu the cholera district    Other outbreaks are reported.

President Andrade Disbands and Pays
Off His Troops aud Goes.
Caracas. Venezuela, Oct. 21.���President Andrade, without transferring
his oxecutive power, embarked at
Laguayru today for Marhacaibo, after
disbanding and paying off his troops
and returning their munitions of war
to the authorities. He was accompanied by French gunboats. One report
has it he intends to continue the fight
in the State of Sulia, though it is con
sidered ho has no chance of success.
General Castro's troops are beginning

quest is acting president. All the public buildings, including the Ministerial
offices und tbo banks as well as seven
of the private residences, are closed.

Kansas City, Mo.,Oot. 31.���The Star

Wingham, Ont., Oct. 21.���Lanrier
and Fielding were accorded a warm reception here last evening by about five
thousand people. Laurier said the

to create a bond of affection between
them, so, that all should be proud to
call themselves Cauadiaus. He denied
charges of extravagance aud corruption. The Hon. Fielding dealt with
every phase of the fiscal policy of the

Into the Kit a-Maat home, Kit a-Maat,

British Columbia wore voted, for the
former $1,807 04, for the latter, *6,
310. The next meeting will bo held iu
Toouio.
;can obstinacy has resulted in temporary arrangements, which Sir Louis
Davies, Canadian Minister of Fisher
ies and Marino, says cannot be dignified by the name of modus vivendi.
Such au arrangement in itself is a
menace. It may be called down any
moment and what would happen then.
So fnr as diplomacy is concerned, we
are at au hbsolnte deadlock.
ON TRIAL FOR ARSON.
Mullen's  Trial   for Burning Columbia
Hotel.
Kamloops, B. O., Oct. 21.���The full
Assizes for the district of Yale opened
here Monday before Justice Drake, of
Victoria. Some of the cases aro very
important; in fact, one of them���the
Queen vs. Mullens���is of interest to
nearly all the people of British Columbia and the State of Washington. Tho
prisoner, Charles Mullens, is well
known all over British Columbia and
on the Sound. He for years was a
prominent saloon keeper in Victoria
in partnership with Steve O'Brien. He
afterward kept saloons in Seattle and
Vancouver.
According to the evidence given
at the preliminary trial, Mullens
went to Grand Forks, B. O. some
lime early this summer. He there got
in with John A. Mauley, ex-mayor of
Grand Forks, and others, who hated
the adjoining City of Columbia.
Grand Forks and Columbia are ]i ss
I ban a mile apart aud are great rivals
It is claimed by the prosecution that
Mullens, shortly after his arrival iu
Grand Forks, entered into a burgian
to get a man to burn down the Hotel
Columbia at Columbia; that he ap
proaohod a man named Joyce and offered him $500 to Inirn the Hotel Colum-
b'.a, which Joyce agreed to do, but afterward backed out; that Joyce, how
ever, offered a man named Robert
Cameron $150 to do the job, and two
days later, or on the morning of Jul-.
17, 181)9, the Columbia Hotel was totally destroyed by fire. The lire took
nlace a 1 a.m., when abou twenty people were asleep in the hotel.
The Hotel Columbia was owned by
ihe Colnmbia Townsite Company,
Ltd., and cost about $13,000, without
ihe furniture, which was $3,000 more.
The next day after the fire, it is
said.Mullons paid Cameron $200 in the
presence of ex-Mayor Manley, at the
Yale Hotel in Grand Forks. About a
month after the tire, Cameron was
arrested on the charge of arson. He
made a statement in which be implicated Mullens and Joyce. Mullens
was then arrested but Joyce skipped
the couutry.
Both Mnlious nnd Caroeron'were oomH
in it ted for trial on September 2, anil
brought here to jail. They have been
in jail ever since, the Crown refusing
to grant bail although Mullens' friends
offered to put up $15,000 bail for him.
Cameron wns tried at the Assizes
here today, anil mainly on his own
confession, was found guilty. He has
not yet been sentenced. Mullens' trial
has been fixed for Friday morning at
10 o'olook.
Mullens' lawyers are E. P. Davis, Q. O., of Vancouver; Mr. Morrison, of Greenwood, ; W. H. Whitaket,
of Kamloops, and two American
lawyers as advisors iu the caso. Attorney-General Houdorson, of Victoria,
aud Mr. McNoil, Q 0., of Rossland,
have oharge of tho caso for the Crown.
Mullens' trial will last three or four
days. Thousands of dollars will be
spent in Mullens' defense. There ure
about forty witue'sses on the case, and
it will bo the biggest legal light that
has ever been put up in British Columbia. John A. Manley, ox-mayor
of Giand Forks, has skipped out, and
is supposed to bo in Mexico hy this
time. There is a warrant ont for bis
arrest.
SHIPS FOR LAKE TRADE.
Toonto, Out., Oot. 21.���The main
section of the Board of Trade protests
against American vessels being allowed to carry Cauadiau trade to and
from Canadian Lake reports, and resolved to petition the Government to
rescind the order permitting the same
to be done. The Government's action
was taken to relieve the Lake ports, it
being asseited there were not sufficient Canadian bottoms to carry tne
trade.

Londou, Oct. 21.���Tho Saturday Review commenting upon the Alaskan

PENNY POSTAGE.
The country has got the thing itself
and rejoices, but there is much heartburning on account of the credit of it.
On Thursday, October 20, Mr. Mu-
look, the Canadian Postmaster-General, caused a press dispatch to be sent
out to say he had just been advised
that the Postal authorities of Cape
Colony had concluded to adopt the
penny rate. The inference to be drawn
from the statement that he had, been
advised of this is, of course, that it
was a courtesy due to bini as the author of that great reform. It was he
who brought about penny postage
throughout the Empire, and although
late in the day tne Cape people desired
to express their acknowledgment of
his invaluable sarvice, It is supposed
that a Dominion general election will
bo ordered within the next few
mouths; indeed, from the activity of
Ministers we are justified in concluding that the campaign is already on.
Mr. Mulock is an extremely modest
gentleman, as those who have followed
his career will testify; but bow oan
we deny to tho illustrious author of
Imperial Penny Postage the liberty to
say thnt he is, and to hint at a return
in the shape of votes?
If it could only be as Mr. Mulock
would have it, what a happy man be
would be! On September 0, twenty
merchants at Cape Town signed the
following letter addressed to Mr. Heu-
niker Heaton: "The undersigned
Capo Colonists desire, hy the first mail
to convey the English letters at the
penny rate.to thank you fnr ymir siren-
uou~ efforts to effect postal reform, and
to congratulate you upon the success
wih which your etforts have been
crowned." There are two points to be
obstrved in connection with the foregoing, one that the pennv rate at tbe
Cape was adopted 011 September ti, one
month and fourteen days before Mr.
Mulock says be was advised of if, and
tho other that Mr. Mulock is entirely
ignored and the whole of the credit is
given to Mr. Henniker Heaton. This
is terrible.
It is terrible for the reason that Mr.
Mulock is anxious to obtain votes for
the Government of which he is a member, and he is also anxious to obtain a
title for himself. If the friends of
Mr. Heaton. instead of insisting on
giving him the credit whioh is unquestionably his due, were to carry
him off to some vast wilderness and
leave him there, Mr. .Mulock might
have n chance to realise the two great
desires of his heart, to be sustained
in office by the vote of the people and
to be introduced to the world as Sir
William. He still clings to the penny
postage, although his latest pretension is dealt a sad blow by those intrusive Cape Colonists; and as if doubtfnl
of its sufficient potency with tbe distributor of titles at Westminster, be is
supporting himself by a bold attack
on the flank which has the msrit of
being strikingly original. He has tendered to the Imperial Postal authorities, for service in South Africa, five
members of his own staff at Ottawa.
If tbat lines nut bring the title,we confess we do not know what will. It is
disappointing, no doubt, to have bis
advices from the Cape discredited before they have fairly time to take
wing. As we have seen, the authorities have not just now consul, red it
necessary to adopt the penny rate, as
it went iuio effect a month and a half
ago; and that troublesome Mr, Heaton
is inconveniently thrust forward.
But despite these annoyances, the
penny rate must be thrust down the
throats of Canadian electors as Mr.
Molock's own, and his startling imitation of Artemus Ward's patriotism, ill the matter of those fivo postal
clerks, will doubtless accomplish the
rest.
put tho honor abovo  or   bolow tho ono
he wore legitimately we do not  know.
The position of President   of  a   Company who own   and   control   such   an
enormous   railway   system as the Canadian Pacific is an exalted one, and attended with   tremendous  responsibilities.    Mr.   Shiiughnessy   has   reached
the   height   of   attaining   it   by   and
through his own merits alone.   He had
no adventitious   aids.    He   is tho controlling spirit of that immense concern
by resaon of hard   work   und  capacity
to perform   it.    If he were not a  man
of brains, with   the   ability   and   the
determination to apply them, he would
not   be   President.    Between    Nelson
and   bis   railway, whatever  direction
development  may take in this portion
of  the    Province,   there will  always
be intimate aud   important  relations,
and those relations will always serve as
a bond between the people and its President.    They will   receive hitn and esteem him wi'h all tho more cordiality
and   confidence  because   of   the  faot
that he has earned  bis   promotion   by
genuine merit.

Speaking at Bowmanville tbo other
day, tho Premier, Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
said: "Canada had undertaken to
send a thousand men to the Transvaal
to take our share in tho struggle.
Today tho Government was attacked
for that policy, and wiiy? Because it
was said tbey had not done enough,
because it was said they could do
more, because it wus said they shonld
not send Canadians to enlist simply in
the British army. " Not at all; it is
for none of these things the Government is being attacked. One of the
few arts of which tho Premier is mas
ter is his ability to draw red herrings
aoross a scent; but it is often so
grossly done that it deceives no one,
and it cannot in this case. It was
beoanse he aud Mr, Tarte had decided
that troops should not be Bent to the
Transvaal the Government was attacked. And as the Right Hon. gentleman doubtless observed, the attack
was so hot that he and Mr. Tarte were
glad to seek cover under the contrary
decision to bow to the will of the Canadian people, whose British blood was
stirred to a point that made further
trifling dangerous.

Far-Reaching   Decision Affeotiug
Exclusion Act.
San Francisco, Oct. 31.���The local
Custom House was advised today by a
private telegram from Washington
of an important decision construing
tho provisions of the latest Chinese exclusion act. The de' ision was from
the Attorney-General of the United
States, and affirms a reoent ruling of
Collector Jackson, subsequently sustained by the Sooietary of the
Treasury.
Uuusual importance attaches to the
decision, from the fact that it was
bitterly opposed by the Chinese Ministers and members of the Chinese
Embassy. Some three weeks ago 35
Chinese sought a landing here under
certificates describing them as merchants.
They were denied a landing by Collector Jackson because of the insufficiency of the certificates. It was heid
by the Collector tha* under section 6 .i
the Exclusion Act it was necessary to
show not only that the applicants were
merchants, but also the character of
theii business and the time and place
where such business had been followed.
Tbe appeal to tbe Attorney-General
was unauthorized by the Exclusion
law. It wns allowed simply as a mat-

HAS BEEN BONDED
Consideration, One Hundred
and Fifty Thousand.
TO   CHICAGO   CAPITAL
Deal   Engineered   by   H. G. McCulloch.
Gratifying Eeports from Exchequer.
General Mining Notes-
Patience, like virtue, lias its own
reward, and Mr. H, Q. MoCnlloch is
now in a fair way to rasp the reward
cf some 18 months negotiations in connection with the Beatrice mine. The
history of these negotiations need not
be repeated now, but Mr. McOulloch
has succeeded in interesting Chicago
parties in the property, nnd they have
taken up the Beer Bros, bond on it.
The consideration named in the bond
is $150,000 to be paid in several payments. No cash payments was paid
down.
The Beatrioe mine is situated about
six miles northweBt/ of Ferguson in
the Troul Lake district and belongs to
Boucher Bros., and Fullmer. Tbe ore
is a high grade galena carrying grev
copper and gold. It is similar in
character to that of thi' Silver Cop,
the Nettie L., and several other properties in that promising mining district. The vein matter is qiartz, and
is about 12 feet -wide, with a rich pay
streak about two f��et in width. It is
considered a true fissure and traverses
a schist formation. Three carloads of
the ore have been shipped to the Hall
Mines Smelter, and nettetl^the shippers $103 a ton, after deducting a
charge of $14 for freight nnd treatment.
It is hoped in the near future to reduce this charge to $8 per ton. A raw
hide trail four miles long will be built
immediately which will connect with
tbe Fish Creek wagon mad, down
which the ore will be hauled to Coma-
plix nt the head of the Arrow Lakes.
About 300 feet of development work
has been done on the property, consisting mainly of shaft work and tunneling, and it is the intention of the new
owners to pnt a force of men to work
immediately and to vigorously push
with a view to placing
on a permanent shipping
as possible.
development
the property
basis as soon
Work on tho Golden Five Group on
Eagle Creek, about half a mile from
the Poor man has resulted in uncovering the lend, which shows five feet
of good looking free milling quartz. A
little more surface work will be done,
before the general plan of development
is decided upon. No assays of the
new find have as yet been made.
Another shipment of first olass ore is
being prepared for shipment from the
Excheqner. It will be remembered
that the first shipment of similar ore
gave returns of $80.30 in gold. Some
50 tons of second class is now at the
mine sacked and ready for shipmeit,
and is expected by the management
to net them $40 to the ton. The tramway from the mine to the Hull Mines
tramway is giving every satisfaction,
and is proving of the utmost importance. By means of it the ore can be
transported from the mine at a cost of
from 30 conts to 40 cents a ton.
There is now a good deal of stoping
ground available at the mine, and there
is considerable ore on tbe dump. De
volopmont work is also to be vigorously pushed, with the result that the
Exchequer may now fairly claim to be
numbered among the regular shippers
of the district. Considering the comparatively brief period during which
active operations have been resumed,
this is a rosult which is highly creditable to the loial management especially as it is coupled with a flourishing
treasury.
��   *   ���
Work  ou the   Birdseyo  on Morning
Mountain will bo resumed today when
Mr. E.  Wilson will take up  a force of

The Pedley Bros., Dave und   Alfred
returned from the Kootenay Valley
country during the past week after locating a group of four claims, the
Black Jack, Red Eye, Silver King,
Shining Jowel. The group is situnted
on what is known as Ice Creek. The
boys brought in some magnificent
gold-copper and galena ore from the
property. It is understood that there
is au immense body of ore. There
has been quite a rush into this section
during the past season especially on
Ice Creek.
The B. C. syndicate, of Loudon,
Eug., inteud working the Paradise
group throughout the winter. It is
situated on Spring Creek. This property was recently bonded for $1,00,000
from the original locators.
All the Windermere mines are paying $3.50 for eight hours. Miners

shores of Vancouver Island, where so
many vessels have piled their bones in
similar gales during the past.
