Loudon,    Feb.    I'.'. ��� The   House    of

of the War Office, in   regard   to army
rueoeoTOS.     .Mr.   Wyudham   said     the
country wonld   soon   hnve   over half a

Sinn' tbe war, 10,000 recruits had join-

it   Improved   facilities   were   ottered,
he anticipated that  the voluntary auxiliary force, if  their  efficiencies  wero
increased, wonld easily suffice for pas-

even be qualified for undertaking more

turning the left of the Magorsfoutein
lines nenr Jncnbsdale, entering the
Free State, compelling General Cronje
to niifie the seige of Kimberley ond
thus making bis first step toward
Blnarafontein.
Yesterday Lord Roberts announced
the appointment of (ienernl Sir Henry
Ool'ille, hitherto commander of the
Guards Brigade, to the command of the
Ninth division, which is being formed
and will consist piobably to a great
extent of Colonial troops. General Onl-
ville will he succeeded by General
Reginald Pnle-Cnrew. Lord Roberts
tells the correspondents when lie gets
down to business they shall have ample opportunity to send news. His
chief press censor yesterday issued
new rules and In future all written
communications are to go unchecked.
Only telegrams will lie cnusnred.
For the next few days little news is
likely to get through but later there
will more freedom. Thus snys the
oensor, and tlio last olause may be interpreted to mean that something is
about to huppeu.
Kimberley, twenty miies away from
the Modder River   position, is in   sore
straits.    Details of the December death
rate show that In a  population of 14,-
000 whites and 111,000  blacks, the mortality was  00  whites and   188  blacks
per thousand.  Tbo infantile death rate

and 012 per thousand among the blacks
Fever  was   prevalent.    The   frightful
statu   of   thiugs iu   December   cannot
have itnporved   much   if   at  all  since
and the lighting  power of the garrison
mnst have   been   greatly   diminished.
Meanwhile   the   bombardment  by the
Boers has increased and there is imminent danger of the town falling.    It is
believed   in   circles  close to the  War

Loudon, Feb. 12.���Recent ninils
from South Africa have brought a
large and interesting batch of letters
from the correspondents r.t the front or
, Isowhero. A picturesque account of
life in Lundsniith. written by the late
G. \V. Stevens, for The Daily Mail, is
dated Lady'Sluith, November 10, and
iu part is as fullow-s :
"That bombardments were a hollow
t.rror I  had  always understood, but
how,   how hollow, I did not know till
1   experienced    the   bombardment   of
Ladysmith.    It   must   he suid that the
Boers are   like   gentlemen of   leisure.
They   restriot   their   hours    of  work
with trade uniou punctuality.  Sunday
was always a holiday, so was  the day
after any particularly   busy   shooting.
They seldom   began before   '.ireakfast,
knocked   off   regularly for   meals, the
luncheon   interval   was 11 :'!() to   noon
for riflemen, and 12 to   12:'IU   for gunners, they hardly ever   fired   after tea,
and never when it rained.    Tho inhabitants  weie   mostly   underground,   so
thnt there was nothing really to  Buffer
except  casual   passengers,   beasts   and
empty buildings.    Few- shells   fell   in
town, and of the few many were   half
charged     witli   loal   dust   and   many
never burst at all.    The   casualties   in
Ladysmith during a fortnight were one
white civilian,   two  natives,   a horse,
two mules, a wagon and   al mil    half a
dozen   houses.    And   of the  last  only
one was actually   wrecked.    This   had
no less   than three shells but remained
habitable to the end.
"And now what does it feel like to
be bombarded? At lirst, and especially the lirst thing in tho morning, it
is -quite an uncomfortable sensation
and if you having nothing to engage
your attentions at all times you get
shells ou the brain and think anil talk
of nettling else. You finish by going
into a hotel in the ground before daylight, aud hiieing a better man than
yourself to biing you down your
meals. Whenever you pur your head
if the hole yon have a uose.brcudth
money, and above all, of the loud la-1
mentations of the Boer women in i
camp for their husband and relations
who had been killed'iM the batlle.��Ali
the Kaffirs have a superstitious horror
of illness oi mourning in any form.
Thev snid the Boer loss hnd been
heavy, almost entirely owing to the
attentive lyddite in the trenches. The
power ol those shells, they sstd, was
terrific Several nf them stilted that
tbey had lu'cn knocked down by the
force of an explosion 200 yards away.
The following week some more Kaffirs
catne In, telling the same story, on
January 8, 12 Hoer deserters oame in.
Tbey, too, ccinplainod of lack of food
and ill iiscnge, and said that the Hoers
were short of both food nnd forage.
All this puints to the fact that the
long waiting is telling heavily un the
Boers, Many of them are without
tents, a serious hardship now that the
heavy rains are beginning and the sup
ply of rations to a constantly moving
force must le exceedingly difficult."

SNUBBING HIS HUM iii.
We shall aot ba surprised it it he
found thnl the Seiiiiin Government bas
none a lon_ way towards preoipitat*
ing its own fate, A few days wo n
memorandum prepared by Hi- Honor,
regarding the administration ot
affairs In the Atlin country, was laid
on the tnble of the House      In this ]in
per Ills Honor presumed to reoommend
a number of amendments to the Placer
Miners Act, a must unusual thing t"
do. Bnt tbete was thi- sentence 1 "1
strongly approve of the reservation of
urn placer mines for Hritish subjects
only." About the same time this
memorandum was submitted the Government Introduced - Rill to amend
the Planer Miners Ad, a ilause of
which proposes to ropeal ihe amendment lo exclude aliens, which was
passed lust session. That is. the Government is propositi., to do the very
thing the Lieutenant-Governor strongly
recommended should not be done,
It is as pretty und as curious n situation as ever arose in Canada. The
Governor has presumed to meddle
with tne Legislature In tbe disobarge
of its functions, and the Governor's
advisers Ignore his most Important
recommendation snd piopose to take an
exactly contrary coarse. Naturally
tb$.affair baa created  consternation in
Ministerial circles, and unnizi'ini'iit
linked with expectancy among the Opposition. The Vancouver Provlnoe is
almost paralysed. It takes bronlli to
sny: "If the Government had already
determined upon the introduction of a
Hill running dlrently counter to the
Lieutenant-Governor's opinion, it was
a -tr.in." action to make that opinion
public. The Governor is now placed
in the awkward position of accepting
advice ill opposition to his published
sentiments. "
Certainly, a worse affront could
Scarcely be placed upon His Honor.
There is sufficient excuse in the narrow majority of one   to   ask Mr. Sem-
lin to gather greater strength to bim*
self or get out. Kor some ren'ou.
however, the Governor has heairaieil
to take action. Perhaps his reluctance will tm stirred by the extraordinary conduct of his Ministers in so
op.-niy disregarding bla opinion In a
mailer of important public policy.
would giant another.   In   ll mirso of
two or thr," years tbe feeling against
dlsallowanoe was so Intense tbat the
people were almost  prepared   i<> lebei.
It waa owing to tbe excitement thai
Mr.  Martin and his (rit'iids   succeeded
in getting nit" power, Under Mr.
Greeuway's leadership tbe Legislature
[again voted a "barter to tbe boundary,
[which    was     disallowed     as     anna].
, About this time. Mr.   Goldwin Smith
visited   til"   Province,  und   satisfying
himself that grave trouble would ensue
llf   th"   federal    authorities   did   not
abandon their polioy of dlsallowanoe,
; he reported tbe situation to   a member
of tbe Imperial Qovernment>and shortly
after Sir John Macdonald was advised
to drop it.    As a OOVei to his retreat be
opened uegotialions with Mr.   Qreen*
way ; but the decision to yield had
b'een n,ade, us there ��u. uo miatakiu.*
the tone of the Imperial reiiiniiatraues
Mi. Martin was like the tiy on tho
wheel. The dust raised by tho com-
motion forced the Federal Government Into action, and Mr. Martin has
pretended ever sinoe to believe thai it
wns he who raised it. The simple
fact was thai Manitoba hud outgrown
the restriction, mid it beoame necessary to relax tbe strain. Hritish Oo-
lumbin has not outgrown, nud never
will outgrow, the necessity of observing proper lespcet fur foreign Powers
and proper regind foi the wider inter
ests of the Empire.

Mr. Cotton's paper assumes that tho
public is awaiting with interest the
reasons for the change of policy in respect to the Placer Mines Act, and
with charming modesty ventures to
suggest that sufficient cause will be
found in "oertain  unexpeoted  adverse
effects of the law on placer mining iu
l.illooat nnd Cariboo." This is as
mnoh as to sav thnt. if the "certain unexpected adverse clients" had oonflned
themselves to Atlin there would be m
change of policy. Will the paper now
be sn goml as to explain why "certain
unexpected adverse effeots" are not
���is iiijuiions in one part of the Province
as in another': Ui does it mean in
say thai the adverse effects were quite
expected in the case nf Atlin, iud that
the legislation of last session wns passed with the object of producing them''
The paper meant well, no doubt, but
instead of relieving one anxiety it bus
added another,
