OF THE RETREAT
The   Boers   Overlooked   a
Splendid Opportunity.
INCITING THE NATIVES
Boers Are TryiDg to   Mako Khania and
Lincbwe Kevolt���No More Dividends���General War News.
London, Oct. 28.���Tbo war situation
this morning presents no now features,
it is presumed in Natiil that the Boers
are re-constructing their plans and
tbat tbe English are resting, but the
telegrams from Ladysrnith, at express
rate, still occupy 4H hours in transmission to London, and therefore, it is
possible that something is happening
there.
The special dispatches assert that
Colonel Baden-Powell, the British
Commander at Mafiking, is aware
that Pietoria has given General Cronje
orders to stay bis hand, as already
there is quite enough to employ the
Boers in Natal. The Government has
chartered the City of Re me, as u hospital ship.
According to the Inlest account of
tbe first bnttle at Glencoe, the Boer
nrmv amounted to 7.(Kin men, nnd
about noon another army, almost as
large, under Commandant General
Joubert advanced within 6,000 yards of
Glencoe oamp, and then retired. The
Boers losses were heavy, unite 800.
Capetown, Oct. 2ft.���(Delated. )���
Two telegrams, datod Lorenzo Mar-
quez, Oct. 21i, have been r oeived here
and, iu view nf tbe fact that all Pretoria news is now coming' via Lorenzo
Marqnez, ihe authorities arc inclined
tn believe that thev nre copies of offioial bulletins from Pretoria The officer evidently n fi rs to me Glencoe battle and Buys: "GeneMl Erasmus, as
expected, was compeliod to retire, his
mon and horses being exUausieri, and
General Eras inns appears to have been
decoyed into the wrong direotion by
the enemy nnd tie British succeeded in
capturing the Iltree i and Vryheid
forces, 'll'eneiiil.ii' ot killed is un
known, hut llie Burghers suffered
heavily.
The second telegram bears evidenoe
of being a repetition of the same engagement, and is by Cumin.iiiilaut
Triohaardt. It says: "l'he Ermelo
Burghers in charge of the artillery apparently lied from Dundee. They
were reinforced by sixty Pretoria
Burghers under General Erasmm,
The English opened fire nnd Dejae-
ger, with a Krnpn gun, yielded. Our
wounded were numerous, including
Commandant O, Crobler. We also lost
UslH prisoners."
London, Oct. ��8.��� The Daily Telegraph publishes the fo[owing dispatch
from Ladysrnith dated Tuesday:
"General Symons ordered his column
lo inarch back to Ladysutith, and under his instructions, himself and all
tho wounded were place in the hospital at Dundee. It is supposed that the
Beers, puzzled by the retirement,
imagined thatji trii k was being prepared and therefore remained at Dundee, watching their guns instead of
surprising the British."
The same paper has tbe following
from Lmlysmitb, dated Wednesday:
"Onr cavalry patrols have been tired
upon this forenoon, and chnsed by the
enemy near the scene of the Reitfon-
tein engagement, The Boers show
signs of becoming aggressive We
learned first of the capture of llie Hussars in response to a military wire sent
to Commandant General Joubert,"
Capetown    Oct.     87.���Aeeotdiug   to
further  advices from Klinberlev,  the
Boers removed their killed and wounded in carts. No reliable estimate of
thelt losses has been made. Mr.
Rhodes rode out and watched the light.
The towsnpeople, Including the women, mounted tbe trenches, wat'hing
eagerly for the return of tho troops.
London, Oct. an ���The Government
hns gratefully accepted the otter of the
American vomen In England to equip
Ihe steamer   Maine,    which   has   been
lent without onarge to tbe British Government by the Atlantic Transportation Company, ns a hospital ship foi
use in South African waters.
Capetown,   Oot.    86.���(Delayed. )���
The story of tbe retreat from Glencoe
and Dundee shows the British weie
forced to move their camp Iwicn in order to get out of the range of Ihe excellent Boer praclice. Just as they had
decided to evacuate the cunip a shell
killed two soldiers. When General
Vuln beard of the battle of Elandslaagt
be sent a squadron of Hussars, under
Colonel Knox and a battery of aiiil-
lery to inteieeiit file Boers at Iliggars-
hflrg. The artillery succeeded in shelling thn Boers as they were retreating
over the Umpatl Mountain killing and
wounding many, but the artillery men
were forced to retire by tbe rifle fire
of the enemy. It shows that the Boers
shelled the camp all day long Sunday
and the British were Kept busy skirmishing and removing their transport
wagons out of range,
During the retreat there were many
anxious moments on Monday night
when the British marched through
Van Lonileer's Pass, six miles long,
across to Biggarsberg. The troops got
through the dangerous defile which
fifty men could have easily held at il
o'clock Tuesday morning.
Colesburg. Cape Colony, Oct. 27 ���A
detachment of 24 Free State Burghers,
are crossing and recrossing the Orange
Kiver at Allemau's Drift for the pur
pose of studying the ford, which has
caused the circulation of rumors of an
intended invasion of the colony from
that point.
Lorenzo Marques, Oct. 27.���The following dispatch has been received here
from Pretoria filed yesterday: "The
Government has issued a proclamation
declaring that no receipts or interests
on bonds can be claimed during the
continuance of martial law, nor within a certain fixed period of the same.
The Boers at Vryburg have seized a
quantity of ammuniiion, Commandant
Sobooinan lias seized Krokodile Port
and destroyed the railway bridge there.
President Kruger is in excellent
health."
Capetown, Oct.27. ��� A telegram from
Bnluwayo Rhodesia, dated Monday,
says: "A Boer force is threatening
Chiefs Khama and Lincbwe, who are
loyal to Great Britain. Khama and
Lincliwe's country lies at the extrenu
northwest of the Transvaal and includes Becbuauaiand. ft seems a gross
injustice for the Boers to provoke war
among the natives The probable explanation is that the Boer force intends to destroy the railway to Buluwayo which runs through Khania's
country and thus prevent any attempt
of Colonel Plainer 8 Khoilesian force to
go to the relief of Mafekiug. Already there have been stories of a Rho-
ilesi.in armed train engaging the Boers
some distance north   of Mafeking. "j

SUPPORTS THE WAR
The Nation Should Now Present a United Front.
THE FOREIGNSITUATION
Lord Charles Beresford Thicks That Unfriendly Nations Advised the Boers
to Fight���Bossuery's Speech,
London, Oct. 27. ���Lord Rosebery in
a speech at a dinner of politicians
Wednesday referred to the war and to
the heavy loss of life, saying that they
had to deplore the death of General Sy-
mons and before they sheathed the
sword there would be many more such
losses. In the meantime, he added, the
country ought to present a united front
to the enemy. I11 his opinion the
Transvaal was not a very complicated
question, but merely the effort of a
community to "Put buck the clock."
Referring to Majuba Hill, Lord Rosebery said Mr, Gladstone's action was
determined by the belief thnt tbe
power of Great Britain was so great
that she could afford to do things other
nations could not afford to do without
risk. The Boers regarded Mr. Gladstone's magnanimity as proof of weakness, upon which tbey  could cncii ach.
Dweliiug upon the unfriendliness of
the foreign press and foreign public
opinion. Lord Rosebery sain: "This
is 110 little war. There are nations
watching with eagerness every trip,
every stumble and much more, every
catastrophe and everything that may
overtake your annus. War waged upon these conditions, therefore, is not a
little war. I do not know why we
Should attract so much ill-feeling.
There is one simple test "hat will apply to the British Empire, that will
compare with other Empires who will
watch her with so much���I wont say
malevolence���but candid feeling.
(Laughter / We would bo only too
glad at the present moment to strike a
Bargain with ihe rest of the world
that every frontier should remain as
now, Of what other empire oan that
lie said? Vet we who are not trying
lo gain, inn to maintain the Empire,
ive who are in the best and highest
sense the most conservative force
in the world, are the object of the concealed dislike of Governments, who I
think are less cnnecl'liative than ourselves. "
London, Oct. 27. ���Rear Admiral
Charles Beresford speaking at Glasgow today against Lord Rosebery's
candidature for the rectorship of tbe
University, said be admired the Earl's
character and brilliancy, lint opposed
him as a politician. The speaker
charged Lord Rosebery with following,
instead nf leading public ipinion, and
asserted that he was largely responsible for the Transvaal's resistance, and
the present war, because ho remained
silent until war actually began and thu
Transvaal had interpreted his sentiments as meaning that the country
was divided on the issue.
Lord Charles said iu the course of
bis speech : "I am not sine that tbe
Boers have not been advised to fight by
unfriendly countries. Wo must be
prepared for all contingencies."

President MoKinley was bound, of
course, to receive with every marl; of
respect and courtesy the resolution of
the Carnegie Hall meeting, recommending the offer of the good seivices
of the Unittd States Government to
mediate between thn Transvaal and
Great Britain. But whether he will
act on it is another aud very different
matter. Just now mediation is out of
the question. If the time were opportune a Government friendly to tbe two
nations might make such an offer
without offence; when the time is not
opportune no Government can do it
without inviting rebuke. Whatever
may be the sentiment of the American
people, there is no doubt that the President and his Administration are
friendly to Great Britain, and will do
nothing to offend or embarrass her.
Tbey know tbat interference at this
juncture could not be tolerated, any
more than the United States would
have tolerated interference after it
had embarked in its war witb Spain.
Tho resolution may have been well
meant, but it will lead to nothing. It
is doubtful, too, if it has the support
of the American people'.' They have
been Anglophobic to a degree. Brit
ain's friendship during the Spanish
war was so cordial that they could not
help but acknowledge it with gratitude. Now that they have an opportunity to reciprocate tbe sympathy, it
may be that many of them are not
prepared to forget so suddenly their
Anglophobia. Tbe change is working,
however. A vast majority of the better classes have forgotten all the old
sores, and aro as friendly as could be
desiied. The rest will follow in good
time,
So astute an observer as The Edmonton Post suggests that Mr. Tarta's
Transvaal attitude wns for political
effect, aud is not to be taken too seriously. Even so, it proves nothing that
can be regarded as satisfying. If he
was playing to the gallery in Quebec,
it could only have been because tbe
gallery in Quebec was in sympathy
with the stand he took. The situation
is not improved with the discovery
that it is the people nnd not Mr. Tarte
who are looking in that loyalty wliich
would extend practical aid to tbe
Mother Country in ber present fight for
the integrity of tho Empire. In either
case it gives nn uncomfortable sensation of something unpleasant in our
own household.
Of tbe two Kaslo volunteers Tbe
Kootenaian says they are excellent
shots, and that as long as a shred re
mains of the old flag they will give an
account of themselves of wliich their
country will not bo asbnmod. We
have no doubt The Kootenaian's pride
in the two gallant fellows who are
hastening with all spued to the Transvaal is justified ; but who will doubt
that tho courage and devotion of the
remainder of the thousand are not
every whit as great? Should tbe opportunity present itself, and it probably
will, the Canadian regiment will so
acquit themselves that their praises
will resound in every quarter of the
Empire.

We cater to the Drug trade

you'll carefully compare

Two members of the Dominion Government, Mr. Paterson and Mr. Sif-
ton, and two other members of the
House of Commons, Mr. D. C. Fraser
and Mr. Logan, have been imported
into Manitoba and are billed in all for
no less than twenty-one meetings.
This is campaigning in earnest, and
means several things. It means first
that tbe Liberals are desperately afraid
Manitoba is slipping away from
them. It means rIbo an early Federal
election, for all this heavy artillery
would not be brought into play if only
the fate of Mr. Greenwny's Government wero hanging in tbo balance.
Whether the local elections shall come
first doer, not matter; a strong Federal
campaign is neoessary in any case. If
Greenway is smashed, Manitoba cannot be counted upon for the Federal
Liberals; and if the Ottawa Government is to appeal first, so much the
greater is the necessity for immediate activity. There is great hurrying
to and fro iu that Province, and a desperate fight is being made to koep it
Liberal.
Before leaving for home Sir Louis
Davies, in behalf of the Canadian Government and with tbe sanction of the
Imperial authorities, handed to the
American Ambassador a new proposition for the settlement of the Alaskan
boundary dispute. Canada will abandon all claim to Dyea and Skagway if
the United States will concede Pyramid Harbor; as for the rest, it is to be
subject to arbitration on conditions
similar to those in the Venezuela case,
one being thnt territory in undisputed
occupancy for fifty years shall not be
disturbed. There has been no official
reply to this proposition, but it is not
expected tbat Washington  will accept.
COUGHS
COLDS
Mr. Ross, the new Ontario Premier,
is starting out well. Whether that
Province has a surplus has long been
a matter of dispute between Liberals
and Tories. The dispatches announce
that a body of expert accountants will
be appointed forthwith, to investigate
the accounts aud determine beyond all
chance of furthor dispute whether or
not the suiplus exists. That is a small
matter, however. More important is
the division of the Government to appoint a commission of judges to investigate tho West Elgin election frauds,
aud punish all who are found guilty of
being implicated in them. This is
something that will commend Mr.
Koss's Government to the favorable
consideration of honest electors of both
parties. With tho West Elgin frauds,
however, should bn included those of
North Waterloo, tho two together constituting the most shocking electoral
OOrmptioil and general rascality evci
disclosed In Canada.

Tho members of the Council aro quite
competent to deal with tho deiieit,
nud we have no doubt thn ratepayers
will endorse any HU(igestion they may
have to suhmit respecting it. They
spent more than tbey had money for,
on tbe urgent appeals of the people
themselves. The expenditure was on
Improvements that had to he provided,
if not this yenr, then next. As tho
City, to the extent of those imr.rove-
nionts, is reaping the advantage a year
sooner than it otherwise wonld, it will
gladly consent to have the cost arranged for by a new issue of debentures,
should the Council decide to make that
disposition of the deficit, There is
nothing in the situation to give the
least uueasiuess. Nelson will have to
incur a debt of a good many thousands
before she is provided witb all her
wants, and a few more or loss this
year cannot matter iu tho long run.
According to the nows service supplied to Tbe Rossland Record, the
Boers are getting tho host of it all
aronnfl, and it is only a question of a
few days when tho British will be
driven out of Natal and that oolony divided between the two Dutch Presidents, Kroger and Steyn.

�� NELSON DAILY MINER. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 28,  1899.
LOCAL  AJND  PERSONAL
The Unv. R. Flow returned lo Nelson liisi night.
The subject of Rev. Frew's Sunday
evening sermon will be "Patriotism."
The Opora House hns B new nnd nt-
traotiva sign of the tinnsparenoy olass,
The '��� Wonder" millinery store hns
nn  interesting  advertisement   in this
issue.
Mr. W. II. Dowsing leaves this
morning for Hpokane ou a business
tiip. He expects to lie back on Tuesday.
The regular Saturday announcement
of Morrison & Caldwell, the grocers,
will be found ou the second page of today's issue.
J. E. Houghton, whose suicide was
chronicled in yesterday's Miner, will
be buried this afternoon, D, MoArthui
& Co,, have  clmrgo of the funeral or-
r.imiement.s.
H M. Vincent, thn merchant tailor,
announces a new consignment of nobby
Imported woolens just received. His
advertisement  will   be  found on  the
fourth page of this issue.
Owing tn the non-arrival of somo
now goods thai will surely be in todny,
the quarter-psge    advertisement    of
Walker, the jeweler, is held over until
tomorrow morning's isue.
Readers of The Miner are reminded
that if they are property owne'.s and
wish to vote nt the coming municipal
elections tbey must pay ibeir tnx.'S by
tho 81st instant The hist moment that
householders  oan pnv is Nov. 80.
(Jnpt. .1. W. Tronp, superintendent
of the Canadian Pacific's steamboat
lines in West Kootenay, will return lo-
dny from a trip np the Columbia and
over the new railroad to Grand Forks
with President T. G. Bbaughnossy and
party.
Tho basements of the Hall nnd Ma-
Inne ifc Tregillus blocks in the East
End are completed and Ihe floors laid
thereon, and from now on those two
important additions to ihe town's
handsome business blocks will grow
rapidly.
The dynamo for the Oity electric
li all t plant arrived yesterday, and
now everything needed for the alterations in the plant is on t e ground It.
is expected that the plant, as reorganized, will be in full working order iu
three days.
Nelson merchnnts yesterdnv shipped
11 cars of merchandise to local points,
five cars being destined for the Bound
ary Country. Nelson's importance as
a commercial and distributing center
is forcing recognition from the surrounding districts.
News has been received that, Joseph
McDonald,registrar at Kimloops, committed suicide on Thursday evening
by shooting himself with a revolver.
The cause is attributed to despondency
brought about by drinking, lie was a
son in-law of late Premier Smith.
The new- transfer barge of the Canadian Pacific steamboat line, which has
been building in Nelson, is nearly
completed and will be put on thn run
between Nelsou and Kootenay Lauding
next week. This gives the oompauy
three transfer barges with a combined
capacity of forty live loaded cars.
There were three cases before Police
Magistrate Crense yesterday morning.
.lnhn Ellis was aoquitted of unlawfully takiug awny sand for building
purposes, Dan Cameron was find $B
and costs for being drunk and disorderly, nud Thomas McAllister, charged
with the same offence, was remanded
until today.
Mr. W. Martin. Government inspector of timber, returned last nighl Irom
a triu through the Trout Lake con.i-
try, where he says tilings are settling
down for the winter Owing to the
badness of tho reads, fieight in congested in that part of the country,
quantities of it being piled up at
Thompson's Landing.
Miss Matthews, sister uf Mr.
Charles Mndi-ws had n nasty Ml yesterday evening off the sidewalk i'l
front of the lions". The nig ii wns of
a pitchy blackness und the side wain
some six f��et ahove the level of ihe
mail. Khowis carried into the house
in a fainting condition, b t did not,
it is hoped, sustnin serious inui'ies. A
safety rail oil all raised sidewalks is
an improvement mnob needed in some
places,
Mr. Duncan McBeath, Mining Ko-
eorder, was arm ted and placed in tbo
Provincial Jail yesterdaj on tho information of the Gold   Commissioner,
He was charged with luisiipnioiiri.ition
of public funds. Later iu the day he
was released on hail, the case being remanded for a week. His friends
say there is no shortage in his ao-
ciiuiits, nud thai there is nothing
against him excopt, possibly, that bis
hooks were carelessly kept.
All the windows, save the large display windows, in the Houston block
are in place, tho walls are plastered
nud stoves are going nighl and dav to
dry the plastering, and It looks as
though the building will certainly bn
ready for occupancy by Wednesday,
next. Although started later than the
other large blocks leing built in Nelsou, it is the first to he finished, snve
the Malone & Tregillus block, which
is only half the size uf Iho Houston
block.
In the Court House vesterdny morning argument in the Traves case was
resumed and concluded, His Lordship
reserving judgment. Then Biuelow
vs. Hamilton Byers .inrne up, nnd the
evidence of the plaintiff was taken. It
is an aotion for recovering alleged arrears of salary while acting as manager
of the Creston Dumber Company, for
tho defendant On the conclusion of
this case, Jnhnseu vs. Blakemore will
be tried. Vanstone vs Buekworth hns
been adjourned until the next sittings
of the Court.
The lntest bear story comes from the
Last Chance mine, on Toad Mountain, and Mr. R. fl. Campbell Johnston, M. E., vouches for its truth. It
appears that a bear has chosen the end
of u 200 ft tnunel for his winter quarters, nnd so fnr tbey have not been able
to dislodge him. The plnu which hns
received the most favor is to throw
sticks of dynamite at him with n long
fuse nttttehod from n discreet distance,
aim then shoot what is left after tho explosion, In the meantime that particular tunnel is being carefully avoided.
The Methodist Church was crowded
last, night, to hear Miss Isahelln T.
Kerr reoile. She was enthusiastically
received and among many gems perhaps By the Love" and ""The Soul
ot the Violin" were the choicest.
Messrs Lennox and Thompson wore
encored for their songs,and Miss Mario
Wilson accompanied. II is to be hoped
that thn is not the last of Miss Kerr's
appearances in Nelson.
Mr. N. Cummins, lessee of the Nelson Soda Water Factory, has contracted for the supply of a quantity of St.
Leon mineral water. The St. Deou
Hot Spring,! adjoin the Halcyon Hot
Springs, and the mineral water is
really obtained from the same spring
though a little lower down the mountain, A quantity of the St. Leon
mineral water is to be placed upon tbe
market immediately, nud a tiinl is
sufficient to convince that it possesses
the nalatiililc taste and medicinal qualities that have made the Hnlycon water
so deservedly popalar,
In May, 1898, a man iiHined Hagel
disappeared suddenly from thn Ln-
oombe settlement, near Edmonton, and
it was given out thnt he bad left for
tbe Klondike and was drowned in the
Peace River. While taking part ns
accuser in a trinl at Red Deer a few
days age, Mrs. Hazel confessed knowledge of the killing of hor husband. Ou
further inquiry und investigation the
body of the murdered man was discovered, and the wife related bow tho
deed was committed in her nresonce
by her brother Alva Quigley. She is
bold for trial as an accessory, and inquiries are now boing made tor Q"ig-
ler. wiin is supposed to be somewhere
in British Columbia,
