hiding of the news respecting tho Hns-
f'ars and Fusiloers who were apparently
captured in the battle at Glencoe, is
severely erilioised, no intimation even
having been given that the ofl'uers
were missing. The heavy losses of the
British troops in facing only 8,000
w��ers are counted on as what rifle fire
"leans in the hands of even undiscplin-

Tagellatt publishes a telegram from
the Transvaal legation at Brussels announcing that Dr. Leyds has received
formal assurance that Frauce aud Russia will not permit Great Britain to
annex the Transvaal or Oiange Free
State. This is discredited, however,
as it is pointed out tbat even if this
were the intention of the powers mentioned they wonld not allow their
hands (o be shown prematurely through
the medium of Dr. Leyds. The Russian newspapers may be somewhat
responsible for the genera) impression

London, Oct. 2(1.���A dispatch to the
Daily Telegraph from Ladysrnith, dated Monday says: "Thirty of the 38th
Hussars, who were sent to intercept
the Boers from Elandslaagt, wove cut

Loudon, Oct. 25.���The War Office
returns show that the total Britisli
ensualities since the beginning of hostilities reached 507; 18 officers having
been killed and 55 wounded, and 70
ni"ii killed aud 435 wounded. There
are 13 unaccounted for. This total,
however, dees not include the squadron of the 18lh Hussars which went
astray near Dundee, and the officers of
the Dublin Fusileers. The report of
heavy losses sent from Rietfontein
came as an unpleasant surprise as
General White's telgram to the War
Office gave the impression that there
was merely a brnsh.
Berlin, Oct. 25.���At a meeting of 3,-
000 members of the Fan-German and
i.nti somite league at Hamburg today
called to protest agaiust the Transvaal war, n disoatoh was aent to Em-

"Vigorous protests should be madi

treatment of tin' wur which gives color
to tne idea that the Germans cannot
do enough to show their enmity for
Great Britain. The majority in this
country, have nothing in common

The paper then quotes Prince Bismarck's dictum, that Great Britain's
friendship is more useful to Germany
than the whole valley of the Nile and
Pyramids, addiug: "Had Prince Bismarck beon an English minister, ��� he
would havo acted towards the Boers as

is that of J. S. Ryan, who came on
board a well man, but through bad
food and lack of attention gradually
grew win-Be until he died on October
10. The other case is much the same,
George Lnniby through want of nourishment and confinement in ill-ventilated qnutrer was taken with typhoid
fever and died on O tober 21. While
he was sick be bad absolutely no medical attention. Both men were buried
at s��a.
From the statements of other passengers, it is learned that the agent of the
ship at Nome guaranteed them plenty
of good provisions on the way down.
They were charged $50 for their passage. When they were a few days out
meat, sugar and butter ran out. Tho
meat consisted of salt horse and a small
supply of canned mutton. There was
a little dried fruit on board, bnt only
enough to supply the table three times
with dried pi aches aud twice with
diied prunes. From that time on for
marly 24 days their food consisted of
flour and coffee. There was plenty of
flour, bnt the water was short. Four
days ago the last of the unpalatable
salt horse was consumed. Had it not
been for ram storms which fell for a
few days they would have been without water also. When the Hera an-
e'lored out in the stream the majority
of the men were so weak that they
could not oarry their gold dust ashore
without assistance. Several of the passengers were crazed fiom their terrible
experiences and bad to be carried
ashore and taken care of, Even taking
their terrible voyuge into consideration, the patenters unite in declining
Nome to be the greatest camp on earth
and many of them will return in ttie
spring.

Mr. Chamberlainjthon said:   "What
would have been tlm Irish argument
in the Spanish American war, iu
which Spain showed herself   iufinitcly
less capable of defending herself than
the Transvaal, Here Mr. Redmond, a
Parnellite, member fiom East Clare,
shouted, ' Tho Transvaal did Int blow
up your war ships. "
Mr. Chamberlain replied,repudiating
tho intention to be provocative, and
saying he only intended lo be plain
and free irom ambiguity. He added
that he only followed in the negotiations, the principles observed by all
statesmen during thu past teu or
twenty yean, There was n time, he
explained,when diplomacy was regarded as given to statesmen, to enable
them to conceal their thoughts, It
might fairly be called "old diplomacy," which he continued, "I absolutely und entirely repudiate."
People are entitled to demand a clear
expression of views, and Mr. Chamberlain assorted, there never was the
slightest justification for the statement
that President Kruger had been in
doubt.
Mr. Chumberlain then said: "Our
object, methods, nnd determination
were to cany out these objects. It was
necossary to impress upon President
Kruger the   seriousness   of the step   he
them. Kruger misled Hofmeyer in
promising him proposals which differed materially from those he really presented. "There has," continued Mr.
Chamberlain, "beeu on the part of the
Transvaal, crookedness, altogether in-
comprehensive, if they desired a settlement I believe that, from first to last,
President Kruger never intended to
give anything approaching equal rights

ONE EMPIRE AND ONE PEOPLE.
"Our Imperial destinies are now be
iug decided in Natal and Cape Col
ony. " tiunh is the significance attach
ed to the present war by oue of the
ablest men of the Empire, Mr. Bnl
four, leadei for the Government in the
House of Commons. It is not a hasty
opinion, expressed lightly, but formed
after months of reflection, with a full
knowledge of all the circumstances
and conditions by which it could be
affected, aud expressed with the deliberation and sense of responsility we
would naturally expect in one of the
chief advisers of Her Majesty at a time
of very grave crisis. Who can doubt
that this momentous issue is now
pending? Tbe Mother Country is engaged in a struggle iu South Alrica on
which the fate of her Colonial Empire
largely depends. Afrikander success
would mean the beginning of Colonial
disintegration. It is not the Boers
alone. If they were the only enemy
to reckon with the tremendous preparations tha* are being made would
not be necessary, nor would there be
the least apprehension of the result.
Actual war may not be waged outside
of South Africa,but tbe fight is against
the old European enemies as well as
the Boers. If blows be not struck elsewhere, it will be because the British
nation has seen the danger from the
beginning and is propared to oope
with it.
England and Europe are rife with
rumors. From Paris comes word
thut Russia is preparing to take advantage of the occasion to make anoth
er advance on Western Afghanistan,
in her unquenchable desire to force a
southern outlet aud to threaten British
supremacy in the Indian Ocean. It
may be that with Frenchmen the wish
is father to the thought j but it is a
poss'iliihtv that hns always to be reckoned with, and one that grows with
its opportnnites. Fiom Vienna is the
rumor that the same Power, with the
aid of France, is about to obtain a naval station from Spain, and it is stated
that movements are on foot to enable
the Russian squadron on the Black Sea
and the French Mediterranean fleet to
join at the Dardanelles with the greatest possiblo dispatch. These rumors
aro causing uneasiness, and although
there may be no demonstrations of the
kind it. is quite understood that Great
Britian is making her preparations in
anticipation of theso and all other possible eventualities. To neglect them
would be to invite aggression, and if
she comes through this trouble with
the Boers without any open manifestation of enmity from France and Bus-
sia it will bo because those Powers
have ooncluded that the opportunity
is not ripe.
Yet it is in the face of these threatening dangers the Premier of Canada
could interpose legal and constitutional
difficulties to prevent tho dispatch of a
Canadian contingent; in the face of
such a grave situation his Prenoh-Can-
adian colleague, Mr. Tarte,by personol
iudueuco and through bis paper, did
everything in his power to defeat the
purpose of loyal Canadians to go to the
aid of the Mother Country to defend
the integrity of the Empire. As a protest against this demonstration of loyalty a favored aud cherished supporter
of the Premier, Mr. Bourassn, resigned
his soot in the House, justifying his
couise hy the following :
"The principle nt  stake is an axiom
par  excellence of British   Liberalism.
It is the very basis   of   Parliamentary

What if these influences were to
prevuil in Canada? English speaking
Canadians know there is no question
and cm be no question of sacrificing
onr rights; of abandoning the least prerogative wliich we possess as a self-
governing Colony. There is, and lias
not boon and cannot be any question
of coercion. We are a part of the Empire, and   u hen   any portion of   it  is
It is not necessary that the citizens
nf Nelson should fall over each other in
their ba<te to commit themselves to
exemption from taxes, the moment it
is suggested that the Canadian Pacific
Company may demand this ns a condition of making their contemplated
improvements. Exemptions are economically unsound, and it is not sure
that a Company any more than an individual is entitled to them. A person com iug to Nelson to livs does not
exact exemption as a condition of
building himself a house; if he did
he would get himself laughed at for his
pains. Why should a Railway Company be treated differently! If we
have to bribo the 0, P. R. Company to
do what they intend to do in any case,
and what is to be done entirely for
their own Accommodation, let us at
least do it deliberately enough to know
what wo aie about.

A CHILD IS MISSING.
Lookout   For   the   Kidnappers   at All
Points.
Creston, Wash., Oct. 35.���Sunday
morning Dr. and Mrs. Dunham and 0.
A. Iuman, wife and three children,
left Creston for a day's ontiug with
Charles Watson, of Wilson Cieek, 16
miles south of Creston. At 3 p. m. a
little girl, Xnman, about three years
old, was found to be missing. The
child was sitting iu her mother's lap
:i0 minutes previous. Ladies and children made a thorough search and called the men to assist. The search con-
tinned Sunday night. Monday a party
of men left to continue tbe search and
by Monday night 60 men were on the
scene and sconred tbe country. During
Monday night and today at least 100
people were engaged in the search. Up
to 10 o'clock tonight no cine was obtained.
The conntry is thoroughly aroused.
The parents are heart bioken. There
are strong suspicions that the child
has beeu kidnapped. The country has
been gone over for 10 miles square.
The missing child, with other children
was playing in an open wagon in front
of the house 80 minutes previous to
being missed. When the, party was
teady to return home it was not to be
found and search was immediately begun and continued the present time.
A WELCOME TO THE PREMIER.
Petrolea, Ont., Oct. 25.���Premier
Lanrier, Hon. Mr. Blair and Fielding
were welcomed here by a large number of citizens yesterday afternoon. In
his address Mr. Laurier referred to
events leading up to the Liberal sue
cess in 1890. Referring f) the Maui
toba scho d he said all questions involving racial and religions matter-,
should be referred to and settled by
the Provinces themselves. He defended tho Government from corruption
charges, and Dredicted the success of
the party at tbe next election. Mr
Laurier also paid a tribute to the Into
member for Lamb ton, Hon. Alex. Mc-
Keuzie. Hon Fielding defended the
reform tariff, admitting the debt was
growing at a rate of two and a half
million dollars, but justified this by
tks growth of the country. Hon. Blair
defended^the action of Hon. Mr. Tarte,
Sifton, and himself. The Cabinet
Ministers also spoke at Sarnlft, where
they met with a warm recention.

Colnmbia, B. G,   Oct. 23. ���(Special
Correspondence of The  Daily   Miner)
��� Saturday wns a red letter day iu tbe
: history of   this   yenng town.    Hither*
' to it has teen dependent upon a miser-
: ably inefficient, second-hand telegraph
' service through a rival city, but on the
; 21st, the C. P. R. open.'d   its new telegraph office, and tne city   was placed
i in touch witb the outside world.    The
| first  message ever the  new wire  was
j ono tent   by   Manager  A. W. Ross, of
; the Townsite Company, to   Mr. C, R.
| Hosmer, manager of  th-.; C. P. R. tel-
; fgraph service at   Montreal,   congratu-
; lating the company   on its   enterprise.
The     received      wns      charactristic:
"Wish   every   success   to    Columbia.
The name seems to be a winner on the
sea; why not also on   land.''   Mr. W.
J. McGregor, late  of Rossland, B. C.,
ha�� been placed   in charge; he  reports
Ihe amount of   business   as very satisfactory.
The rapid growth of Columbia has
decided Mr. G. O. Buchannn, the well
known lumber operator of Kaslo, to
start on a large scale in Colnmbia. He
was here on Saturday arranging for
space for a large lumber yard and
shed. A company will be inaugurated
immediately, which will be known as
the Columbia River Lumber Co., it
will control all the present mills each
oue taking stock in it pro rata, and in
addition will occupy several desirable
points now vacant. As the growth
of the place bus been most retarded by
a lumber famine tbe arrival of a strong
Kootenay Company is very welcome.
Columbia ran use an almost unlimited
supply of fir, hemlock, cedar and tarn-
eiack. The timber around this point
is mostly bull pine, though thera is a
large body of white pine np the North
Fork of Ihe Kettle River.
Mr. J. Anderson is driving a tunnel
to develop the Sultana and Oregon
Miueral Claims, on Hardy Mountain,
just one mile from the end line of tbe
city plot These claims adjoin the
Yankee Boy, which is now a shipper,
and very satisfactory assays running
high in gold and copper have been obtained.
Joe Gelinas, Colin Campbell, Alex
Onion, mid Panl Gautier, joint owners of the Herald claims on Lime
Creek, a tributary of the North    Fork,
age of several assays is $3 50 in gold,
and 21 per cent' copper. The vein
seems to be a very strong one, neither
wall having been uncovered as yet.
Gelinas is also owner in 'he Montreal
and Quebec claims, almost in town.
A 30 foot shaft is down and assays
running from $S to $18. in gold, have
been had. The property is a big contact deposit with an extraordinarily
heavy nou cap.
AN ANNUAL DINNER.

Hundreds of People Left Homeless and
Destitute.
Victoria, B. C, Oot, 25.-Intelligence is biongbt by the Rinsa Maru.
which arrived here tonight, that
plioon through wliich the steamship
Empress and Senator passed proved
even more disastrous on land than on
| sea. In Tokio and Yokohama it raged
I with great fierceness. Hundreds of
honses were wrecked in all districts,
though the storm seems to have hcen
attended with less loss of life than usual. A train bound fnr Fuhushima
from Myeno encountered a gale ef such
ternffic fnry when crossing the Ho
kokigawa that it was blown down the
river. It cousisted of 10 cars, including two locomotives, fonr carriages
and three break vans. The locomotives
having cut off their coupling links,
escaped scathless, but all the other
oars, carrying about 100 passengers
were precipitated from the bridge.
One person was killed instantly, 80 !
were severely injured aud 30 others
slightly, Oue woman is reported miss-
ing. Rescue parties were dispatched
immediately from neighboring sta-!
tions ns well as from LTlyeuo and the
unfortunate passengers were picked up
in a few hours. Tne water beliw the
bridge was not deep. Had it been all
the passengers wonld have been
drowned.
The steamer Tonking, lying nt the
dock at Yokohama, was blown against
the steamer Servia, damaging her
badly.
News of another disastrous catastrophe conies from Tagouaura, between
Numadsu and Suzukawa. About 1
o'clock on October 7 a tidal wave
swept over Tagonaura. Over 20C
houses were destroyed aud more than
100 people perished. Tbe neighborhood of Yoshiwara Murn was converted into an extensive lake. A number
of boats are engaged in the search for
the dead bodies. Great misery and
suffering prevail among the afflicted
people. A telegbram from Miyazaki
perfecture also reports the occurrence
of a tidal wave at Mimitsumachi cu
October-li, and the destruction of many
houses. It is believed that Russia is
attempting to secure a naval station
between Vladivostock and Liao Tung
and has selected Masamps. She is attempting to buy land, but tbe Koreans
are holding out for a big price and it
is believed she will seize it.
