AiUlG SAMPLE
OF BOER IGNORANCE
South African Dutch Opinion
of Great Britain.
WILL DIVIDE OUR LAND
British Possessions to Be Soou Partitioned
Arnoue the Powers���Boer I ea of
Our Arnij and Navy.
The letter printed below has-been
taken from The London Times. The
paper states tbat tbe writir bears n
will known Dutch name, and gives
ns his lute address the name of a wall
known town in a Dutch district ot
Cape Colony. Ah a sample of boastful iKiiormit e the letter is probably
without equal, n,l, if >.: ������ writer's
views are g nierally shared in South
Africa, goes far to explain tbe circumstances preceding H;e present wur:
To the Editor nf Tbe Times:
Sir,���In your paper yen hnve often
oommented on what yon pleased to cull
the ignorance of my countrymen, tbe
Boers We are nut sn ignorant as the
British statesmen and newspaper writers, nor are we suoh lools lis yon British are. We know our policy and
wo do not ohangn it. We have no opposition party to fear nor to truckle
to. Your boasted Conservative majority has been the obedient tool of the
Kndi :al minority, and the Radical
minority has been the blind tool of
our far-seeing and intelligent President We havo dpsircd delay, and we
havo had it, nad wo are now practically masters of South Africa from
tbe Zambesi to the Capo. All the
Afrikanders in Cape Colony have been
working for years for this ond,for tbey
and we know the facts.
1, The actual value of gold in the
Transvaal is at least 200.0(10 millions of
pounds, anil this fact is ,s well known
to the Emperor of Germany nnd Russia as it is to us. You estimate the
value of gol i lit only 700 millions nf
pounds, or, at least, that is what you
pretend to estimate it at, Bnt Ger-
mauv, Russia, and France do not do
siro you to get possession of this vast
muss of gold, and so, after encouraging you to believe tbat they will not
interfere In South Africa they will
certainly do so. and very easily find a
casus belli, and they will assist us di-
roctlv and indirectly to drive yon nut
of Africa.
2. We know that you dare not take
any precautious in advanoa to prevent
tlio onslaught ot the Groat Powers, as
tho Opposition, tlio groat peace party,
will raise tlio question of expense', and
this will win over your lazy, dirty,
drunken working classes, who will
never again permit themselves to be
taxed to support jour Empire, or even
to preserve your existence as a nation.
8, We knov,' from all tho military
authorities i f the European and American continents that yon exist as an
independent Power merely on suffer
once, and that nt any moment the
gieat Emperor William can arrange
wilh France cr Rus-iu to wipe yon off
the fane of the earth. They can iii
any time starve yon into surrender.
You nii.st yield In all tilings to the
United StnteB also, or youi sopplj of
corn will be so reduced bv the Anori-
cans that your iwirkin classes would
be compelled 10 pay high prices for
their food, and rather than do that
tiny-wonld have civil war, and invite
any foreign Power to assist them by
invasion, for there is no patriotism in
the working classes of England, Wales,
or Ireland.
4. Wo know that your country has
been more prosperous than any other
country during tho last BO years (you
have no civil wur like thn Americana
and French to toin np your nerves and
Strengthen your manliness), and consequently your able-bodied n.en will
not enlist in your so-called voluntary
army. Therefore you havo to hire tbo
dregs of your population to do your
fighting, and iboy are deficient in phy
siqua, in moial and mental ability,
and in all tho qualities that mako
good lighting men.
fi. Your military officers we know
to bo merely pedantic scholars or frivolous society men, without any capacity
for practical warfare with white men.
The Afridis were more than   a  matoh
for yon, and your victory over the
Soudanese was achieved be-nose those
noor people had not a rifle amongst
thotn.
6. We know thnt your men, being
tho dregs of your people, are naturally
feeble, as all your Government returns
plainly show, and that they cannot endure the hardships of war.
7. We know that the entire British
raco is rapidly decaying, your biitb-
rate is rapidly falling, your children
aro born weak, diseased, and deformed,
and that the major part of your population consists of females, cripples,
epileptics, consninptives, cancerous
people, invalids and lunatics of all
kinds whom you carefully nourish and
preserve.
8. We know that your Navy is big,
but we know thut it is not powerful,
and that it is honeycombed with disloyalty���as witness the theft of the signal books, tbe assaults on officers, the
desertions aud the wilfill injury of the
boilers and machinery, which all the
vigilance of the officers is powerless
to prevent.
10. We know that the Conservative
Government is a mere sham, and that
it largely reduced the strength of the
British artillery in 1888-89. And wo
know thut it does not dara now to call
ont tho Militia for training, nor to
mobilize iho Fleet, nor to give snfli-
cieiit grunts to the Line und Volunteers for ammunition to enable them to
become good marksmen nod ellicieur
soldiers. Wo know Unit British sold
iers nu.l sailors are immensely inferior
us marksmen, not only to Germans,
French, and Americans, but also to
Japanese, Afridis, Chilians, Peruvians, Belgians, and Russians.
11. We know that no British Government dares to propose any form of
compulsory military or naval training,
for the British people would rather be
invaded, conquered, aud governed by
Germans, Russians,or Frenchmen than
ho compelled to servo their own Government.
12. Wv Borrs know that we will not
be governed by a set of British cms,
but that we will drive you out of Africa altogether, and the other manly
nations which have compulsory military service���the armed manhood of
Europe���will very qui ikly divide all
your other   possessions between them.
Talk no more of the ignorance of
the Boers or Cape Dutoli; a few days
more will prove your ignorance of the
British position, and in a short space of
time you and your yueeu will be imploring tho good offices of the great
German Emperor to deliver you from
i-nnr disasters, for your humiliations
ire not yet complete.
For !ift.,vaars the Cape Dutch have
heen waiting their chance, and now
their day has come. They will throw
off their mask nud your yoke at the
same instant, a; d 300,000 Dutch heroes will trample you under foot.
We can afford to tell you the truth
now, and in this letter you havo got
tr. ��� Yours, &o.,

AGAINST LABOR UNIONS.
Important Judgment Handed Down By
An   American   Judge.
Pittsburg, Nov. 1. ���An important
leoision wai handed down today by
Judge White, of the County Court,
gainst labor unions. Tlio cose wus
one which caused a great deal of comment iu labor circles all over the country. O. L. Flncins, a glass manufacturer of Tarentura, Pa , brought suit
against the officers of the American
Flint Glass Workers' Union to prevent
them from inducing the apprentices
of the plaintiff to join tbe union, The
deci ion holds tbo plaintiff has a right
to operate his factory independent of
Ihe Union, and that the defendants
have no rigbl to persnade Ins uppren
ticcs to become members of their organization,
Referring to alleged rules of trades'
unions which prevent a young man
from learning a trade without the consent of tho union, the Judge says:
"Such rules and regulations of these
trade unions strike at tin first principles of personal liberty in a free country ; they are oppressive and they are
tyrannical They are paluably unjust
to individuals and dangerous to the
peace and good order of society."
BACK FROM MANILA.
San Franoisco, Cal., Nov. 1.���The
U. S transport, City of Pueblo, arrived today, 27 days from Manila, Learing
sick and discharged soldiers. Seven
enlisted men died en route.

MULES BOLTED WITH AMMUNITION

Fought Until Their Ammunition Was Expended.
Criticisms on General White.
Loudon, Nov. I.���The British War
Office today made public a dispatch
received lrorn General White, describing ihe, operations of Monday. It was
as tollows:
"Ladysrnith, Oct. 31.��� 7 :B0 p. m.���1
took out from Ladysrnith a brigade of
mounted troops, two brigade divisions of the Royal artillery, the Natal field battery, and two brigades
of infantry, to reconuoiter in force the
enemy's main position to the north,
and if opportunity should offer, capture the hill behind Farquhar's farm,
which had, on the previous dav, been
held in strength by the enemy. In
connection with this advance a column
consisting of the 10th Mountain artillery, four half companies of the
Glouceaters, and six companies of the
Royal Irish Fusileers, the whole under
Lieutenant-Colonel Carlton and Major
Adye, Deputy Assistant Adjutant General, was dispatched at 11 p. m., ',.���
the 29th to march by night up the
spruit and seize Nicholson's Nek, or
some position near there, thus turning
the enemy's right flank. The main
advance was successfully carried out,
tho objective of the attack being found
evacuated, and au artillery duel between our field batteries aud the enemy's guus of the position, and Maxims
is understood to have caused heavy loss
to the enemy. The reconnaissance
forced the enemy to fully disclose his
position, and after a strong counter at-
tuck on our right,and the infantry brigade and cavalry bad been repul ed,
the troops were slowly withdrawn to
camp, pickets being left on observation. Late in the engagement, the naval contingent under Cupraiu Larabton
of H. M. S. Powerful came into action
and silenced, with their extiemelv accurate firo. the enemy's guns of the position. The circumstances which attended the movement of Lieutenant-
Colonel Carlton's column nre not yet
fully known, but fiom reports received
the column appears to have curried out
the night march unmolested, until
within two miles of Nicholson Nek.
At this point, two bonlders rolled
from the hill and a few title shots
stampeded the infautrv ammunition
mules. The stampede spread to the
battery mules, which broke loose from
their leaders and got away witli prac
tic-ally the whole of rhe gun equipment
and tbe greater portion of tho regimental small arm ammunition, The
reserve was similarly lost Tho infantry battalions, however, fixed bayonets
and, accompanied   lr,  the personnel of
the artillery, seized a hill on the left ot
the road two miles from tlio Nek, with
but little opposition. There they ie.
mained unmolested until the morning,
the time being occupied in organizing the defence of the hill and constructing stone snugers and walls as
cover from the enemy's fire At dawn
a skirmishing attack on our position
was commenced by the enemy, bnt
made no way until 9:110 a. Ul., when
strong reinforcenif nts enabled thf m to
rush to the attack with great energy.
Thoir fire became very searching, and
two companies of Gloucosters, in an
advanced position, were ordered to fall
bank. The enemy pressed to short
range, tho Iosbos on our side becoming
very numerous. At B p. m. our ammunition was practically exhausted,
tho position was captured, and tho survivors of the column foil into the enemy's hands. The enemy treated our
wounded with humanity. Cleueral
Jouhert at once dispatched a letter to
me, offering safe conduct to doctors
and ambulances to remove the wound
ed. Medical officers and parties to ren
der first aid to the  wounded wero dis
Datched to the scene of action from
Ladysrnith lust night, and the ambulance at dawn ths morning, Tbe want
of success of tbe column was due to
the misfortune of tbe mules stamped-
ing and the consequent loss of the guns
and small arm ammunition and the reserve. The official list of casualties
and prisoner; will te reported shortly.
The latter are understood to have boen
sent by rail to Pretoria. The security
of Ladysrnith is in  no way affected."
London, Nov. 1 -The War Office
today issued the following additional
list of 58 disunities sustained by General Yule's force from the time of the
battle of Glencoe until it joined the
force of  Sir   George   White:
Kiug's Rifles,four killed, IB wounded.
Leicestershire regiment, one wounded ; nine missing.
Artillery, ono killed; one wounded;
two missing.
Mounted infantry, 27 missing.
The last mentioned were attaohed to
the squadron of the 18tb Hussars who
were entrapped by the Boers after the
battle of Glencoe. They ate undoubtedly captured with the Hussars.
A careful calculation of the British
losses in all the engagements since
the outbreak of hostilities, excluding
the casualties among the non-commissioned officers and men iu Monday's
disaster at Ladysrnith, which aro thus
far unknown here, gives a total of Dili
tn which probably 1,200 will need to
be added, when the details regarding
the Ladysrnith reverses are received.
This total is made up as fnlows : Officers 121!, being nine killed, (11 wounded nnd fill captured; men 78!i, being 187
killed, 492 wounded, and 164 captured.
London, Nov. 1.���The Earl of nel-
nonrue, Uuder-Secretary of Slate
tor the Colonies, speaking at Dumfries
today said: "It is not the fimlt of the
statesmen of the Transvaal tbat we
have not beoome embroiled with some
European power. If hostilities had
not come when they did, they would
have come ut some moment of national
danger and difficulty."
Baron Tweedmouth, former Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury,
speaking at Edinburgh, said :
"The public mind has not been to
moved since the dreadful events of the
mutiny iu India. We unfortunately
aro warring with a nation of tbo same
stock and religion as ourselves At
this crisis all hearts go out to the bravo
Boers und to tho siiiull British army
in Natal, which against fearful odds,
bus performed magnificent feats of
valor. It is not time to call our opponents names, or to utter cries of vengeance but to hack up Her Majesty's
Ministers, who have a fearful, yes,
awful responsibility upon their shoulders. ''
The Earl of Carrington, Liberal,
speaking at Buckingham, gave expression to virtually the same convictions.
The Earl of Lonsdale, honorary Colonel of tho Third battalion Border regiment, at a banquet given this evening
at Whitehaven, declared his confidence
in General White, the British com
mander in Natal, and predicted a
grand review in Pretoria   next March
Referring tn Emperor William's celebrated telegram to President Kruger
at the time of the failure of the Jameson raid, Lord Lonsdale said :
"If His Majesty's dispatch had boon
really understood it would have had a
totally different effeot. It was sent
with a view to allaying fears. It was
not antagonistic to Great Britain. I
bate tho pleasure to know tbe views
of the German Emperor, and they  are
in accordance with the views of England, "
Lord George Hamilton, Secretary of
State for India, speaking at Ealing
this evening said I
"Oui ultimate victory is certain.
and when'the terms which we as victors will propose to tho vanquished are
known, foreign nations Will see tha'
the mnin cause whioh has forced US
to embark upon this conflict if not a
desire of pecuniary profit, or of territorial aggrandisement, but a determination to einaiicipate a vast territory for
the common benefit oi mankind from
an ignoble and degrading tyranny."
Berlin, Nov. I,���The Noi I Deutsche
Zrtitung, in the course of an article,
evidently inspired, says:
"Germany hns no intention of
playing into the hands of France by
intervening in tbe Transvaal. She
intends to puisue a course of absolute
neutrality."
Replying to the anti-Semite Pan-
German outcry aguinst the Emperor's
expected visit to England, the Neueste
Naobriobten remarks:
"Although Germans individually
nay disapprove of England's policy,
the actions of the Emperor must be
dictated by Germany's interests, which
do not allow her unnecessarily to
irouso bad feeling in England, It
would be a gre.it mistake to prejudice
German intetests in S'nth Africa y a
one-sided altitude, in view of the future reorganization of tlm political
situation 'here. Moreover, the great
sea power and tho great laud power
have every reason t, co-operate in union nnd harmony.
London, Nov. L���It is announced today in a special dispatch from Lady-
em ith that the Boers closed around
that place Monday night,sending shells
into the British camp. The two guns
landed from the British cruiser Powerful opened fire on the Beors at dawn
Tuesday. The Boers brought up more
guns, but some of them were silenced.
It is added that tbe Boer loss must be
heavy. The garrison of Ladysinitb is
described as being in good spirits and
confident, and the troops are said to
be full of fight. The aiilllery duiJ
was still iu progress at night.
London, Nov. 1.���The gloom caused
hy the British disaster at Ladysinitb
was in a measure relieved bv today's
story giving an account of the heroic
stand made by the decimated battalions
until their last cartridges wero gone.
London, Nov. 1. ���It, was reported nt
Aldershot today that another complete
army division will forthwith be formed for service in South Africa. The
division consists of 10,000 men aud 0-1
gnus. This is possibly a preliminary
stiD towards the calling of a second
army corps.
Capetown, Oot. 111. ���(Delayed in
transmission)���Gnus  of  the    British
naval brigade have knocked tho Boer
40-pounder clean off its platforil, inn!
huve silenced tiie Boer guus on Herp-
worth Hill, overlooking Lady smith,
The Boeis abandoned  their   positions.
London, Nov. 2.���The break down
of the Delagoa cable route oombined
with the monopolization of the available telegraph lines by the Government
and tbo statu officers is responsible for
the faot that nothing further has arrived from South Africa, Tho Govern.
ment has received dispatches rectifying   tho   casualty list.    They will   be
published  today.   Up    to   midnight
nothing hud been   received concerning
Monday's .casualties,   Tho  War Office
ollieiuls aro working under great
siram. Captain Permit, stuff oaptain
to the military secretary has just filed,
bis end being hastened by anxiety and
overwork.
An unconfirmed statement is pub-
llshed that General Sir Bedveri Bnllei
has left Capetown for  Ladysinitb.
A belated dispateb from Ladysmilb
describing Monday's light says: "A
couple of squadrons of Hussars had a
narrow escape from disaster curly iu
the day. They found themselves suddenly confronted within easy range by
au overwhelming force of Boers who
seemed to spring from the bowels of
the earth. The Hussars were splendidly disciplined and wero extracted
with only ono man wounded."
The Queen is credited with oxpres-
ing her sincere sympathy for Sir
George Stewart White,and tho official!
are in no wise inclined to judge him
harshly. So far as the public is concerned, however, while gratification is
felt at the manner in which the isolated battalions surrendered, there is still
severe criticism ior General White ami
Lieutenant Colonel Carleton for allowing their column to get out of touch.
For the absence of proper scouting and

SEVERE   REVERSE.
That a bitter cry should go up from
England over tha Ladysrnith disaster
was but natural���a cry of surprise, ano
mortification, and anger. The situation wub critical, but they were not
expecting reverses, and especially such
a serious oue bb the loss of two regiments and a mountain battery. The
two weeke' campaign had prepared
them for something quite different.
Our forces have been up against the
Boers almost continuously, aud the result has been an unbroken succession
of British victories. The only disappointing feature was Yule's retreat
from Dundee, and that in the end was
accepted as good warfare. That such
a record should be suddenly broken by
the hacking and capturing of two
crack regiments and the loss of an entire battery comes like a blow that is
maddening. The feeling will be more
bitter than ever should any misfortune
befall the rest of the army, now cruelly
decimated, and threatened by twice or
thrice its numbers. People have al-
leady asked why the authorities were
so slow in prepating to meet what they
must have known was inevitable.
Thoy saw long ago that the Boers
moant war; why, then, did they delay-
in dispatching an army? Should the
Boers force the situation at Ladysrnith,
as they arc likely to do, this question
will find louder expression than has
been given to it yet.
Tbeie has been an explanation, and
though it may afford little satisfaction
in tlu day of defeat it will stand iu
history to the oredit of the nation.
Great Britain is the larger power, and
she could not afford to appear as impatient or oxaoting. As long as negotiations were on, she felt she ought not
to do anything to provoke Boer animosity. All Europe was looking on
and disposed to cry "bully;" it was
Britain's place to show that she was
not pushing her weaker antagonist to
the wall. If war came, it must be
clear beyond all doubt tbat it was the
act of the Boers. That is the reason
an army was not dispatched several
weeks before it was. No one will pay
British diplomacy so poor a compliment as to suppose that the authorities did not see what was aheud of
them; but beyond the movement of
troops necessary for the proper policing of South Africa, they were not
free to take any active step until war
was foiced upon them.
Wnen it did come the Boers, of
oonrse, were on the ground, and could

they were not cliK-keu, and lodn ive
find them investing Ladysrnith���perhaps, if tho truth were known, in thi
possession of it. Such a reverse was
to be expected. Great Britain catinot
fight tho Boers with an army that is
still on tho ocean. They will begin to
arrive ou Sunday ; some have not yet
left England. Weeks must elapse before General Buller oan take tbe Hold
in force strong enough to strike with
effect. In the meantime General Joubert may make a play ground of Natal. We deplore tbe disaster of Monday last, but when wo divest ourselves
rf feeling in, the matter we must acknowledge that scarcely less con Id lie
expected. Should General Whito win
out without further mishap, it will be
evidence that the Boers are weaker
than suppt sod and that the campaign
is alroady half over. It may save some
disappointment, however, if we do not
rockon on that.
would refuse a voice *o all persons who
declined to accept^the responsibilities
of full citizenship Let Mennonites
und Doukhobors have the protection of
our laws and the lib' rty to participate
in municipal affairs, but if they will
not fight fur the country they have no
right to a voice in saying how or by
whom the country shall be gov��rned.
Evidently this policy is commendiug
itself to electors of British origin, for
the Government papers spend much
time in combatting it. Tbey have resurrected an old speech of Lord Duffer-
iu s, in wliich that excessively amiable
gentleman said some pleasant things
to the Mennonites when he visited
their settlement in 1877. That, bow-
ever, cuts but little figure just now.
The question is whether a subject who
declines to accept all tho responsibilities of oitlzenship is entitled to enjoy
all its rights and privileges. Mr.
Macdonald thinks not, and a majority
of Canadians will agree with him. If
we were all of the Doukhobor faith
there would be no Canadian volunteers
for South Africa, and the Dominion
would sit disgraced in the family of
Colonies.
The Doukhobors, like the Mennonites, will not bear arms; it is against
the principles of their religions faith.
Manitoba has many Mennonites and
more Doukhobors: the latter, in fact,
are coming in such numbers that
thoughtful people tre beginning to feel
apprehensive of the future. In his
campaign Mr. Hugb J. Macdonald has
declined   that iu   affairs   of   Statu  he
The Miner is not a miner or a mine
manager or owner, and does not profess to know whether eight hours are
long enough for an underground shift,
or whether they are too long. That is
a question which has tn be decided between those who understand it from
actual experience, and we do not
think that newspapei editors come
within that cluss. It is a subject,
therefore, on which we have declined
to dogmatise. If agreeable all around,
or even to a majority of interests, we
con see no reason why eight hours
should not be made, the standard day.
It is another thing, however, when
tbe law steps in and says that a man
must not work longer than eight hours.
That is an arbitrary and indefensible
interference with tbe personal liberty
of the subject. The right to work can
not be taken away, or curtailed, or restricted, without violence to the fundamental principles of that freedom on
wliich aro based the most cherished of
British institutions. The Legislature
of British Columbia has presumed to
do this, and its law is therefore to bo
condemned. Tho violence becomes an
abuse when men take advantage of the
law to demand as a right the same pay
for eight hours they had formerly accepted for a longer day without a word
of complaint. We do not know whether this is within the comprehension of
Mr. Houston's paper, but persons to
whose Intelligence it is possible to penetrate without the aid of a pile-driver
will understand it aud admit that it is
a sound position to take.

INSURANCE RATES
REDUCTIONS   ON   LOME   OF
BAKER STREET BLOCKS.
TB.E
Besult of Messrs. Daven ort and Eoss'
Biport���The (Jomjunias' Answer
to the Proposed Tax.
Oue of tbe matters which arc of tbe
greatest interest to nil merchants and
householders is tho question of insurance rates. In comparison with other
towns in Kootenay, Nelson seems to
have been fairly well treated iu tbe
way of insurance rates, though tbey
are still lusher than people would like
to see them. By spending large sums
in iuoteasing tbe efficiency of tlio Fire
Department, the City has sought to decrease the risk of lire anil incidentally
to lower lire iusnrauco rates also. The
municipal authorities have been
greatly helped 111 this mutter ��by pri-
vatii property owners, who arc erecting substantial brick blocks especially
on the main business streets. Nelson
can thus fairly demand a reconsideration of the rales oh urged for lire Insurance, and a fulfillment ot urn promises
held out from time to time by the insurance people. The Vancouver Board

Josephine nud Ward, mid in several
in tinmen a substantial reduction in
rates is to be observed.
it may be mentioned he.v thnr at the.
same meeting o( the Mainland Board
of Underwriters, which authorized this
rate sheet, the following resolution
was passed:
" In cities and towns where taxation
is imposed on iusuruiloe comp-iuhs
snob places shall liuto their rates increased, or such n percentage on the
premium shall he imposed us may be
considered adequate by ibis board."
It is not within the province of this
article to discuss the advisability or
non-advisability of the by-law now
before the Council which would impose u yearly tax of 1100 upon the
lire insurance companies operating iu
Nelson. Rut it may lie fairly pointed
out that the above quoted resolution
would indicate that it will he the insured, and not the insurance companies, who will really pay that tux.

for not retiring when the ammunition
was lost. In favor of Lieutenant-Colonel Carleton, the explanation is haz-
ard.-d tbat be bujievel it was imperative to the success of General White's
operations that he should hold the position at Nicholson's Nek.
Tho Morning Post comments severely upon the British contempt for
the enemy as shown by tbe belief that
the larger force at Actonholmes could
lie held in check by Carleton's small
column. It points out that even if the
British there had been supplied with
ammunition, they could only have held
out a low hours longer, inasmuch as
they wero, in tbe most complete sense
of the word, ditched, nnd because nobody apparently at Ladynnith had any
itiea of their distress or took measures
to rescue them.
"The column was sacrificed" says
the Morning Post,"because it was sent
into action nagged untl blindfolded. It
had neither scout nor patrol. Twelve
hundred men were thrown away for
luck of cavalry which wonld not have
been missed in another part of tbe
field."
The Standard comments in similar
terms upon the fact that General
Whito made no effort to extricate the
column from the impossible situation
into which he had thiust it, and draws
a picture i f che men hoping for relief
and then realizing with bitterness of
heart that some one had blundered;
that they had been forgotten by their
general and his staff and that nothing
was left bnt surrender and imprisonment at Pretoria until tbe end of the
war.
The Daily Chronicle says it is evident lhat somebody has blundered, bnt
more particulars nre required before the
blame can be apportioned.
The Times says: "The dangers of
Sir Georgo White's plans are patent,
even to civilians, bnt it is not impossible that the Capo boys in charge of the
Mountain battery, who were quite recently suspected of disaffection, may
have been tampered with by the
Boeis. Otherwise such a large and
comprehensive stampede is a very extraordinary occurrence from such a
slight cause. General White's movement, so far as it can be understood
from present information, is open to
criticism in the complete absence of
communication with the main body."

that a second Canadian contingent be
sent to the seat of war.
KRUGER   BURNED   IN   EFFIGi-.
Toronto, Nov. 1.���President   Kruger
was burned iu elligy by 1,800  students
last night.
London, Nov. 2.���The, morning papers comment with the greatest satisfaction upon Canada's suggestion regal ding the sending of a second contingent to South Africa.
London, Nov. 2.���The Portuguese
Government, according to a dispatch
from Orerto to the Daily Mail, has
decided to send no troops to Delagoa
Bay before the end of December unless
the frontier of Portugeese East Africa
should be threatened.
Paris, Nov. 1���A society has beon
founded to render assistance to tbe
Transvaal Government. Col. Mouteil
is president and M. M Francis Coppe.
Jules Lemaitre, Henri Roehefort and
Drumont, .proprietor of the Libre
Parole, are honorary presidents. The
organization is enrolling volunteers tonight for tbo Boers and tho promoters
claim that more than ,100 have volunteered. .They have difficulty, however,
in finding the necessary funds and it-
is doubtful whethsr Dr. Loyds, the
special representative of the Transvaal
Government iu Europe will be able to
simply these. Under these conditions,
tbe whole movement which is in the
hands of the most violent section of the
Nationalist and anti-Semite factions
will probably collapse.
Loudon, Nov a.���A special dispatol
from Pietermaritzburg, Natal, dated
Tuesday morning says: " stragglers
from the Gloucestershire regimeut nre
arriving at Ladysinitb. A uumiier of
mules with a portion of tho Mountain
battery are also coming in."
Edinburgh, Nov. 2.��� Lcrd Rosebery,
toastiug "The Armv| and Navy" at a
banquet given this evening by the
Lord Provost of Edinburgh, to tbe
officers of the Gordon Highlanders au
tbe Scots Groys, referred to the reverse in Natal, saying:
"It is much to be regretted, but In
a considerable campaign we must look
out for such incidents. It is not in the
nature of Britons to take much notice
of them. We have had a good mauy of
the same kind and hnve aenernlly got
out right in the end. But whatever
happens we must see this thing through
even if it should cost still more battalions and still more millions. Some
day there will be au inquisition as to
the preparations made for this war,
but the time for that is not now. Onr
duty uow is to support those who have
the direction of affairs. "
Victoria, B. C, Nov. 1. -Between
tbe acts in the theater tonight H. D.
Helmcken, M. P. P., proposed n resolution favoring the offer of a seoond
Canadian contingent to the Imperial
Government.    This   was seconded  by
