London, Oct. 31.���Yesterday's engagement at Ladysrnith, which despite
the rather heavy losses must he regarded rather us an extended reconnaissance or skirmish than a battle,
seems to make little change in the ao-
tual position. It is disappointing to
the British public as again revealing
tactical skill of an unexpectedly high
order on the side of the Boers. In
addition to the possession of a number
of heavy guns, the transportation of
which causes wonderment here, they
have available marvellous ability.
Unless commanded by skillful European oiiicoifl, it is hardly considered
probable that Boer farmers would have
assumed a feigned position, as they
evidently did, iu front of tho right cnl-
nnm, with the intention of retreating
from it to their real line ot defense,
and of inducing the British to attack
over a tire swept /one. Tbe special

London, Oct. 30.���The War Office
hero has received a despatch which
says General White has fought an en
gngenient pre umably with General
Joubert's force, which was pushed
back after several hours fighting. The
British lost about 100 men and the
Boer losses were much greater. The
Boers were in larger numbers and had
better artillery. The dispatch, which
was dated 6:30 p. m. today, reads as
follows:
"I employed all the troops hero except the obligatory garrison before the
works. I sent a mountain battery,
the Irish Fusileers and the Gloucestors
to take up a position on the hills ro
clear my left fl ink. Thu force moved
at 11 o'clock yest rriay evening and,
during the firing the same night, the
nattery mules stampeded with some of
the guus, which, however, I hope to
recover. The two battalions have not
yet returned, bnt are expected this
evening. I detailed two brigade divisions of artillery aud five battalions
of infantry, aided hy cavalry, under
General French, to attack the posi
tion upon which the enemy yesterriiw
mounted guns. Wu found this position
evacuated, lint our force was   al tacked
with   considerable  vigor  by  what  I
nelievfl wore General Jonbert's troops.
They had many gnus and showed in
great numbers. Our troops were all in
action and we pushed the enemy hack
several miles, hut did not succeed iu
reaching his laager. Our losses nre
estimated   at between eighty   and one
hundred, but those of the enemy must
have been much greater, the fire ot
our guns appearing very effective.
After being In action several hours 1
withdrew the troops and they returned
unmolested to their cantonment. The
neiny are in great numbers and their
gns range further than our field guns
I now have s veral guns temporarily
silenced nnd, hope, will permanently
dominate the enemy's best guns with
which he has been bombarding the
tov. n nt a range of over six thousand
yaids."
DETAILS OF THE FIGHT.
Ladysrnith, Oct. 110 ���(0 p. in.)���Tha
advance was   made   at dawn with the
object of shelling the   Boers from   the
position   where   yesterday    they   had
mounted a number of guns.   On leaching the spot, however,   it   was   found
that they had evacuated  the   position, j
The British continued to advance  und;
tho movement developed   into a recon-1
naissance in force.   The  enemy   were
posted on   a   range of hills, having  a
frontage of about sixteen miles.
The British force.wa-: disposed in the |
following order: On tho right, three
regiments of cavalry, four batteries of
the Royal Field Artillery nnd five
battalions of infantry; in the centre,
three batteries of the Royal Field Artillery two regiments of cavalry;, and
four infantry battalions, and ou the
left, the Royal Irish Fusileers, the
Gloucestershire regiment and the nub
Mountain battery. This force had
. been detailed to guard our left flank at
! a late hour lust night. General White's
plan of operations was, that us tne
movement developed, the force constituting our centre which was disposed
under cover of a kopje about three
miles from the town, should throw itself upon the enemy while the left
Hank was bein�� held by the Fusileers
and the Glonoeaters. The plan wns
well devised, but failed in execution,
owing to the fact that tho Boer pos-
tic.i which formed our objective point
wan evacuated.
Our art llery quickly reduced the
volume of the enemy's tlio; but the at-
tauk delivered on our right Hank was
the prinoipal oue, and ihe column was
con neliwl to change. The B��tr attach

be gradually   v il bdrawu.    The  tuovi
meat was carried out with great steadiness and deliberation and undercover
of our guns who. ma ixcellent   prao-
tioe. S in.i shells were thrown into
Hie town from tho enemy's 40-pound-
era at a range of over 0,000 yards, hut
no damage was (lone. The engage
meut lusted several hours and resulted
in our side in casualti is estimated at
80 to 100. The Boer losses must have
largely exceeded tnis total.
The attack- was admirably delivered
by our right and the Boers were fairly-
driven ont of one of their strongholds
near Lombard Kop. It was not possible, however, to push the success
much further, as beyond that point
lay a long broken ridge, affording
every kind of natural cover. Of
this the euemy took tho fullest advantage Our shells failed to dislodge the
Boers and the infantry moved forward
in extended order, they came under
heavy and well directed rifle fire the
effect of which was soon apparent.
General White, who was with the
centre, seeing that the troops ou the
right were somewhat pressed, sent to
their assistance the whole centre column with tho exception of tbe Devonshire regiment Thu battle bad thus
Listed four hours, during which tho artillery lire on both sides had been almost incessant.
The naval brigade, whioh nad landed at Durban had arrived on the scene
toward the end of tiie fighting and
brought their heavy guns into play immediately. Their firing was magnificent!. At the fourth shot, the enemy's
40-poundnrs had been knocked out of
action. The town is now, therefore,
treed from appichcnsinu of bombardment, Throughout the engagement,
the Boers held their ground with coinage nnd tenacity anil considering tin
intensity of our artillery fire, they
must have suffcied severely,
OTHER ACCOUNTS.
London, Oct. 30.���The Daily Telegraph   lias the   following   account   of
the Ladysrnith engagement from its
special correspondent at the front:
Au indecisive reconnaissance occurred today. General Sir George White
advanced before daybreak (Monday)
wilh all the available forces from
Luriysmith, moving towaids Tmta In-
yoni. Two brigades wero under Colonels Ian Hamilton and Howard, and
another with General Kir Archibald
Hunter wont toward Bnlwan, while
two conducted by Major Arriy marched on our extreme left beyond the old
camp.
"The Boers were found to be in great
force at all points. Although we bad
several hntteries of artillery, their lire
tailed to eutiioly crush thu enemy's
artillery. The Fifth Lancers plnckily
rode across the enemy's front nnd
feigned a retreat. This, however, failed to entice the enemv out. the Boers
only replying with o shell fire This
Hank attack so developed that Colonel
Hamilton had to reinforce our right
with three batteries and the Gordon
Highlanders, Devonshire and Manchester regiments at intervals.
"Our artillery then changed front
and a severe artillery duel ensued, the
guns generously supporting tbe re-in-
forcing infantry as they advanced.
Two batteries remained in action
against the 12 pounder, and the quick-
firers of the naval contingent which
came into  action.
Tho enomy had field pieces, machine guns and a 100-ponnder. Gun-
eral White, in the afteruoon withdrew
his forces npon Ladysinitb. The losses
on the Boer side   were   considerable."
Thu correspondent of Tho Times ut
Ladysinitb says :
"The action seemed to be proceeding
most satisfactorily, when ut 7 :16 a. in
the enemy, in large numbers with
Hula gi ns, Maxims and .37 millimetre
guns began to develop a heavy attack
on Colonel Griuiwoori's infantry. The
cava.ry brigade had moved up on our
right, holding the parallel ridge over
against Colonel Qrimwood's position
and practically acting as infantry.
In the meantime our batteries kept
down the siege gnu fire upon Lady-
smith with shrapnel, At y o'clock
thero seemed to he a lull as the enemy
on our right brought further artillery
to hear, Colonel Grimwood, who with
tbe three advancing battalions had
held the ridge for five hours s uddenly
fell buck across the line upon our
guus. The Fifty-Third battery plnckily pushed forward to cover this withdrawal. Severe casualties occurred at
this phase. The Fifty-Thiid bat-
tory held on against a crossfire of rifles
and quick firing guns until the infau
try were clear. Thu teams of the two
guns were damaged, nnd the battery
eventually retired, made up toaius being sent to extricate tho two guns.
The cavalry being unsupported were
forced to full hack also. Then began a
general retirement ou Ladysinitb. The
gjus which had been covering the Devonshire regiment, stoutly covered the
final withdrawal. The euemy did not
press, but showed themselves in their
positions in .gieat numbers, only to
Hud that the naval biigario from the
Powerful had arrived. Two quick firing gnus wero placed iu position and
in five rounds tbey had silenced tbe
enemy's 40-pounders.
'The troopsi were back in Lady-
smith by 2 o'clock in thj nfteuoou,
The casualties caused by the enemy's
artillery were not severe. The Mountain battery on tho lelt reported that
it had suffered through a stampede i f
limits. Our artillery, cavalry, mount
d infantry aid volunteer cavalry behaved splendidly m difficult circumstances. L)r. .Jameson and Sir John
Willoughby arrived today and weie
spectators of ihe action."

liong Tom, thu name our soldiers had

a shell which was followed with anxious eyes towards the town of Lady-

our left, Sheltered by rising ground,
they occupied a ridge on our flunk,
and there hidden by the scrub nnd
trees they could watch the turn of
events in safety and await their
chance. Thu Devonshire regiment advanced toward a Kaliir kraal, under
a bill, and there they remained with
orders not to fire a shot until they were
called ou. Only when volleys weie
heard on their rear aud Hank oid they
show the least sign of restlessness.
Thu sound of this firing, feeble though
it seemed, satisfied ub that the Glou-
cesters and Irish Fusileers were near.
There is no truth in the story of a
disaster to the battalions after the
stampede of the Mountain battery
mules.
'Sir George White, Sir Archibald
Hunter, and the staff officers watchid
the developments of tho artillery ut-

a realization of General White's plans.
'The enemy early showed themselves, nnd ulthongh along the ridges
that lay beyond the range of our guns,
they from time to time gave us an opportunity to judge   of   their numbers.
'At the height of the engagement
tbe noise was almost deafening. Above
thn rattle of the musketry could be
heard the thud of the Maxims and the
banging of (he quick firing guns which
insiderahly added to the difficulties
our men bud to encounter. The purpose of the reconnaissance had, however, been gallantly accomplished and
onr infantry began to fall hack. This
movement wus covered by oavalrr.
ome of tho troops had to cross open
gitmnri toward thn centre anil While
so doing they were raked with a heavy
(Ire. The retirement was, however,
effected without disorder or serious
loss. Our batteries were got into position   tn   secure   the   withdrawal   of
tber arms from molestation,   but the
fortunate destruction of the enemy's
Long Tom rendered such service unnecessary. '

THE MINING SITUATION.
We do not know whether the Government at Victoria ure disposed to
listen to suggestions, but they will
find one in Mr. Fcrgusson's letter published in The Miner of Sunday, to
which they might profitably devote a
generous share of their consideration,
So little has been said or heard of
them since affairs in South Africa
came to a head that their existence
has for the moment been overlooked.
Thu troubles which havo followed the
Eight-Hour law, however, still remain
with us, and if anything are becoin-
iug moro acute. It is necessary that
they should he taken seriously in
baud, to ascertnin if something cannot
be done to mitigate tbe evils of them,
This is a duty which devolves in the
first instance on the Government, and
to discharge it they must come out
from under the shadow of the South
African troubles and face the issue.
In a little more than two months the
Legislature will meet, if Ministerial
assurances aro worth anything, and
the mining situation requires that
some definite policy of relief shall be
ready for submission in the earliest
days of the session.
Mr. Fergusson is a mining engineer
who has made a study of the situation
in all its aspects, and who, we take
it, has concerned himself but little
with our political squabbles; he is
therefore in a position to give an intelligent judgment and is free to express it without bias one way or the
other. The Legislature has committed
itself to an eight-hour day, and so far
as that alone is concerned there is no
overwhelming evidence that the country objects to it. But there is a most
undesirable feature associated with it.
There may be no great objection to
eight hours, as the standard day, but
in restricting a day's labor to this
limit, on pain of exemplary penalties, the Legislature interferes witb
the personal liberty of the; subject.
A man must be allowed, where there
iB no question of pnbilo policy to the
contrary, to sell his labor as he sees
fit. Under the present law he cannot
do this. Mr. Fergusson suggests that
the eight-hour day he permitted to
stand, if such is the general wish, but
recommends that the restriction be removed, and employer and employed be
left to deal with each other as the best
interests of both may seem to demand
If the Government were to give
effeot to this, by procuring the necessary legislation, they would remove tne
principal stumbling block to an amicable settlement of the differences
whioh are proving so disastrous to the
mining industry of the Province.
In this connection it will not he
inappropriate to refer to the subject of
intimidation. There are miners who
nre disposed to accept tho eight-hour
wage offered by the mine owners, but
are dissuaded bv officers of the Unions.
who employ more or less veiled threats
to intimidate them. This practice is
clearly ill gal The attention of The
Victoria Colonial bus been ailed ; it
and a .study of the authorities enables
it to say: "Iu the ciibo of Lyons &
Sons vs. Wilkins et al derided iu the
Chuue.ory Division .luring the present
year the law was fully examined, ano
the Master of the Rolls, in delivering
judgment on un application for 'a per-
petuul injunction to restrain the defendants from watching or besetting
either tbe plaintiffs' works or the
works of sub-manufacturer for theui
for uny other purpose except meioly to
obtain or communicate information,'
the injunction being sustained by the
Full Court on appeal, said thut it is
it nuisance at Common Law to watch
or besot a man's house with it view to
compel him to do or not to do that
which it is lawful for him to do or not
to do. and the reason given is that
such watching or besetting interferes
with ordinary human comfort. For
committing such a nuisan ie the Criminal Code of Canada provides a penalty of three mouths' imprisonment or
$100 fine, and persons could be unjoined from committing them hero just as
in Great Britain. In Ghnrnock vs.
(Jourt it was held that waiting at a
steamer to induce men not to go to
work was illegal, and in Walters vs
Green the (Jonrt went further and
decluted that the intercepting of men
was an offence even though the action
wus not directed against any particular firm. The law ns laid down in
these cases would undoubtedly he held
to apply to British Columbia." It is
impossible that the present situation
can be allowed to continue after the
Legislature is given nn opportunity to
grapple with it, and in the meantime
reasonable and industrious miners
who desire to go to work may know
that if necessary they can invoke the
protection of the law iu doing so.
"I mil a Minister in a British Government," says Mr. Tarte, "I have
liberty to call myself Fiench ; hut if it
is desired that I should declare myself
u British citizen, und   it  is desired to
prevent me oallmg myself French,
then I refuse to call myself it Britisli
subject. We are happy and freo under
British institutions, but France is also
my dear Mother Country." And
again : "What have we to do with the
things iii Africa? Why should we take
the money and the blood of our people
to spend them iu such far-away regions. '' Thus does Mr Tarte play to
the racial prejudices of his compatriots
of Quebec, yet when indignant British
papers denounce such disloyal utterances they are accused of exciting racial animosities. It would be better
if all insisted in impressing on Mr.
Tarte that a 'Minister in a British
Government" is expected to he British,
not French.
Tho Winnipeg Free Press says that
about eighty per cent, of the population of Manitoba ure native Caiiitidans,
and only nbout five percent. English,
yet of its contribution to tho Transvaal
contingent forty per cent, only nre
Canadian, while the English make up
forty-five per cent. From this The
Free Press coines to the conclusion that
Canadians are less martial in spirit
The number of Old Countrymen is
doubtless large for a Canadian regiment, but it would not be difficult to
find several reasons wliich would go to
explain their preponderance in a manner that would relieve natives of the
Dominion of anything like reproach.
As long as Canadians do not lack
either courage or loyalty they nre all
right, aud we have not seen anywbeie
that theje are doubted.

discharged.    These pilferings by small
boys are getting too common, and   the

A circumstance has been reported to
The Miner that mav not be without a
measure of general public interest. A
citizen who is fond of roaming about
visited the wood chute on the side of
the mountain above the N. & F. S.
tank on Sunday last. Thinking to as-
eend he begun the walk iu the chute it
self, but had gone only a few rods when
a rumbling sound caused him to look
up. What he saw was the business end
ot a heavy oordwrod stiok coming towards him with the velooity of a cannon ball. Had be been two fifths nf a
second later in yielding tn it the right
of way lie .vonld in another fifth have
been a mangled mass of humanity.
He bad no business on the chute, of
course, but perhaps it would be just
as well if tlioso who use it were to
make known the fact that even on
Sundays it, is not safe, to reckon on an
entire suspension of operations.

The Queen Bess is putting in two
machine drills.
The Black Prince, at Slocan City,
has shipped the second ear of ore this
season.
The Ivanhoe Company have pnt up
a snow shed in the wake of a slide,
ns a precaution against possible
danger.
About 30 men are working the
Rambler-Cariboo now, and it is supposed tho mine will have nearly 00
more  before the wiu'er is over.
The Emily Edith lias erected very
complete lodging and boarding apart
ments and will put up a concentrator
in the spring, but we very much doubt
that it will employ the staff this winter referred to by The Silvertouian.
Joe Martin law is iu the road.
It is generally understood that the
Minnesota Silver Company aro going
to put on a considerable force of men
shortly to work the Ivanhoe aud other
claims. It is also not unlikely a step
mav ho taken shortly in the way of
putting up the projected concentrator.
An important strike has been made
on the Hewitt claim, near Silverton.
A ledge from five to 10 feot wide and
over three quarters of a mile in
length has been found. A paystrenk
about eight inches wide has been found
near tho footwall, and much of the
balance of ledge matter is concentrating ore.

J. E. Saucier, acting for Rossland,
London and Paris capitalists, has secured control of the Copper Crown and
Excess mineral claims, sitnated about
ono mile from the railroad in Isador
canyon, and about six miles from
Cruubrook, says the Herald of that
place. Mr. Saucier is feeling pretty
good over this aohievement and he has
good reason for it. Tbe Copper Crown
is one of tbe best copper prospects iu
tho district, and has been owned by
R. O. Jennings, J. A. Harvey and
Robert MoKeenman. A shaft has
been sunk on the property to the
depth of sixty-five feet, and the assays
iu copper have increased in value as
deptl^has been secured. Tho deal was
made on the basis of cash payments
and stock, aud Air. Saucier is to be
congratulated ou his g rod fortune in
securing such a promising property.
The claims will be worked hy the The
Gold-Copper Mining Company, Limited, and active operations will be inaugurated without dolay.

Tho aerial tramway from the Granite mine to the stamp mill will be

was eqnal to anything that has been
done in this country under Sir Henry's
management, and was well nigh perfect in detail. The audience was one
ef the best that over assembled witihn

ils appreciation of S r Henry's acting,
and that of Miss Terry mid the Lyceum Company as a whole, was un-
stintingly manifested.

SOUTH AFRICAN CLIMATE.
Some idea of tho climate conditions
tbat the soldier boys from hero are going to face in South Africa will be of
interest at this time. The average
results for the year show tbat, with
the exception of a email area in the
immediate vicinity of Capetown, the
total rainfall for the year is almost
wholly below 20 inches, that is considerably less than in London. In most
places the average for the year is less
than 10 inches, and at some stations it
falls as low as five inches for the whole
12 months, The meagre returns for
the Transvaal show that in 18110, the
rainfall eight miles east of Johannesburg wns practically nil in July August
and September, while in October the
rainfall was 6.77 inches, which was
the wettest mouth ot tho year, and
rain fell on 11 days. In both November and December the rainfall iu tbe
vicinity of Johannesburg exceeded fivji
