nays of fighting have left the main
position intact and Genernl Boiler's
many 706 men weaker, aooordlng to
the official casually list whioh seemingly do not include the Bpion Kop
losses, as these last forwarded do not
mention Oeneral Woodgate'l wounding. Bngland is pressed by a depressing sense of failure, although not a
word  in criticism of her generals nnd
MhiliTs is uttered. Not .mnoh effort
is made to place a happy construction
nptiii General Boiler's bare eighteen
words, telling of the retirement frum
Spioe Kop, ami there is an uneasy
impression abroad tegarding the news
vol Iii come. Mr. Spencer Wilkinson, in the Morning Fust, writes us
follows ot the Spion Kop loss: "This
is ii serious matter and nn attempt will
not he made to minimise it for no
greater wroug can he done IO our people nl home than to mislead theui
iiinut tlie significance nf tho emits ot
the war. The right way is tn tell the
until ns  far   us   we   know   It."    Bnl
facts from the neighborhood of tbe Tugela are scantier than ever. The censorship now is limply prohibitive, and
something is wrong with the cables,
The   break on the east const lines   has
beeu repaired  hut  the cable between
Snu IhOtns ami Luanda on thn west
coast is now Interrupted. "More
tumps" is the on'y suggestion hern ns
the wnv to lireak the Uiht resistence.
Mr. Wilkinson regrets that Hem nil
Buller has not -0,(11)0 men, declaring
that if they would not make Victory
certain, his enterprise without them is
hopeless   The Spectator, dealing with
the necessity uf huge additional   mill
tiny  preparations, snys:   "It may   he
Hint ne have yet   another cycle nf disasters in front of us,"

The Ex-Trail Stiitinti Agent to Ho Ko-
leased���Something About the Case.
In yesterday morning's Miner appeared a speeial telegram from Uttawu
stating that Walter Brewster, serving
a nineteen months' seutome ut New
West minster f r appropriating ('. P.
U. money nt Nelson, Iiiih been reprieved, utter serving only tivo months'
lime. His lelenso was brought about
by political friends iu tbe East.
It was ul. Trail, uol Nelson, that the
money was taken, and it is safe to say
that tbere Is not one familiar with the
oiroumstiinoes, including  the officials
of the railway, who will not be glad to
learn nf Brewster's release. Brewster's assistant in the Trail ollice proved r isb'inest,inift when Brewster found
it out tln> defalcation amounted to an
amount that seemed considerable lo
him. In the desire to save his friend,
yonng Brewster took the company's
money to gamble with, iu tbo hope of
winning enough to make goml ihe entire shortage, but met with the uson|
result. Both were proven guilty and
sent to jail.
The citizens of Trail made up the
ainonnt of the misappropriation and
offered it to the (". P. R, if thai oompany would abandon thu suit ngninst
Brewster, but it was necessary to make
an example of him, and he was convicted and sentenced, It is safe In
say, bowovci, that, yonng Brewster's
experience will not be held ngninst
bun in the community where ins tumbles occurred, for he was one of Trail's
most popular and promising young
men, mid still retains tbe confidence of
those wbo know him best.
