A despatch from Kimberley, dated
October 2i)th, says all the wounded are
doing well. Small bodies ot Boers
about 400 strong, were then frequently
seen. They apparently came from
Maffkiug, for the purpose either of assisting in the attack on Kimberley or
to resist the advauce of reinforcements.

communicated to the other Anstalrian

Capetown, Oct. 31. ���(Delaycd)--Sir
Alfred Milner in his capacity of Vice-
Admiral of Cape district has issued a
proclamation establishing a naval prize
court during the continuance of tbe
war. This is aimed at foreigners who
might try to land supplies for the
Boers.
London, Nov. 3.���While Ihe wires
from Ladysinitb are out the optimism
of the War Office officials yesterday
evening persisted in refusing to believe
that Ladysmlith was completely invested or Colonso captured. This appears to be justified as this morning it
was asserted that the railroad was still
open, although the traffic is being con
ducted with the greatest canti^-i.
What, however, was only romor yesterday evening, may, it is claimed he
a reality at any moment, ns Joubert
with a large and wonderfully mobile
force, is expected to detach several
thousand men and make a dash at the
railroad. Kuniors of all kinds are
springing up here. It is even asserted
that General White has been compelled to fall back on Pietermaritzburg,
leaving the wounded behind. It is
probably that such rumors have originated in the recollection of the ominous silence which preceded the evacuation of Dundee. But, it is asserted,
conditions are, altered <ind tho British
guus now seem more equal to the artillery, of the Boers, thus enhancing the
difficulties of nny assualt upon the
Biitish lineB.
A Capetown dispatch reports a repulse of the Beers by the British yes-
letriay. While thero is a habit here to
assume tbat news of the Boer victories
emanating trom tho continent cannot
be true, because of the censorship,
ihe fact is forgotten that the foreign
Governments are fully privileged to
snid and receive cypher niessags to and
from, tneir representatives iu toutb

MRS.    HAZEN   AND   CEREMONY.
New York, Nov. 2. ���A spenial to the
Journal and Advertiser from Washington says:
The wedding of Admiral Dewey and
Mrs. Hazen, society says, will be performed either by Archbishop Keane or
Cardinal Gibbons. Some say tho wedding will bo a brilliant private, affair,
others that it will be a brilliant church
affair. Some of Mrs. Hazen's friends
say that in all probability Mrs. Hazen
would prefer to be married nt the residence of her mother, Mrs. Wasniugton
McLeau,and that the officiating clergyman will be Archbishop Keane, formerly rector of the Catholic University. Mrs. Hazen was received into the
Catholic church by Archbishop Keane
about six years ago. She was raised a
Presbyterian but was attending St.
John's Episcopal church at the time of
her conversion. The general impression is that by virtue of tl dispensation
from tho Pope, the wedding ceremony
may be performed in a church, but if
in a private residouce tho affair will
be as brilliant as the Admiral's high
position would suggest.

London, Nov. 4.���Paris and Berlin
continue to supply statements of the
British reverses, the latest being that
Mafeking has fallen. The Pans correspondent of the Daily News asserts
that Bince tho war began, the secret

monthly nnd that pro-Boer journalists
aro bribed wholesale. Ncue of these
rumors are yet confirmed, and little
attention is paid to them.

was rumored that the Channel squadron will be ordered to the Cape where
a great naval force is to be collected
with n view nf establishing a cordon
from the mouth of the Orange River to

Ladysrnith, dated Wednesday morning:
"Matters today nre quiet. The
Boers are apparently mounting more
heavy guns to the north und northeast,
whioh are likely to give us trouble,
A Boer contingent 1,500 strong and

London, Nov. 4. -The Staudnrd published a dispatch from Luxembcrg
which says: ��� "Until within a very

London, Nov. 8.���While yesterday's
rumors of Boer and British victories
are taken hero to indicate that more
serious operations have been curried
out, it is generally recognized that
most of the news at present is largely
surmise, nnd must be accepted with
great caution. Ihe rumors of continental anti-British coalition continue
to occupy the French papers. Referring to the alleged Anglo-American understanding, said to be an outcome of
the Spanish-American war, Tho Figaro says:
"Iho Washington Cabinet is convinced that had it not been forresoluto

times in succession. The round was all
in favor of Sharkey.
Ninth Ronnd���Sharkey as usual was
ihe aggressor. He swung his left to
roll's bead but Jim ducked cleverly.
Sharkey was inclined In practice rough
nctics. In a mix-op Sharkey beat
left's ribs with right and then put the
iiitue ..hand over on the jaw. The
sailor miBses no opportunity to get in
on Jeff's body. 'J hey duck cleverly
bnt each shows weariness. Sbarkoy
waits his oppormnity to reach Jeff's
neck. They mix it and rough it at the
ropes as the gong sounds.
Tenth Round���Sharkey rashes, but
gets Jeff's left full in the neck. Sharkey cliuches and Jeff rushes him to
the ropes. Sharkey perplexed Jeff
with a stiff left. Jeff bus lost his
smile. At close quarters ihey exchange left to the body. Sharkey ne.-ps
at it continually and keeps Jeff guess-
iug. Jeff's hand comes in contact
with Sharkey's left eye in a mix-up
and blood flows freely. The sailor
puts left to face as the gong sounds.
Eleventh Round���Sharkey is once
more the aggressor. He swings left
and light but without effect. Jeff
rushes but gets the left to the neck.
They clinch and Silcr goes between
them to force them apart. Sharkey
swings left to body aud repeats to head
but without serious damage. Jeff is
cautious aud is .-cutout to keep away
from Sharkey's furious rushes. Jeff
rushes in with a left jab to jaw. A
minute later he opens Sharkey's sore
eye with a furious right swing. Both
are standing the game well.
Twelfth Round���They come to the
centre and clinch. Jim lights shy mid
ducks the sailor's left swing in the
nick of time. Thoy mix it. Sharkey
wallops the kidneys. Tom O'Rourke
is c.iBcliing Sharkey from his corner.
The sailor puts right and left on Jeff
six times without a return. They
clinch. Jeff leads left. Sharkey ducks
and counters witb right. Sharkey's
left swing falls short bnt a second attempt is effective. It is Sharkey's
round.
Thirteenth    Round���Sharkey always
ueti in the   first   lick.    His  left   is  a
cruel member  and   it   does   its   work
veil and  constantly.   Tho  champion

Fifth   Konud���Mnarkcy   rushes am
gets ni   a   left-banded  half  opperout
to pit of Jeff's stomach. They mix np
fiercely. Sharkey ducks cleverly and
ruts his left niidoi Jim's chin three
times iu succession. The boilermaker
lands left on body. As the gong sounds
Sharkey punches Jeff with a right
bander to the ribs. Brady yells
"foul."    Silcr cautions Sharkey.
Sixth Round���They come together
quickly exchanging body blows. The
sailor puts right to kidneys and left to
neck. Jeff ducks a fierce left lead to)
face. They clinch and Jeff puts his
weight on his antagonist. The light
ing is furious. Sharkey lends left to
body aud they clinch. The heat is
having its effect. There is slugging
all over the ring. Sharkey has Jeff's
nock raw from constant poki-ig with
left.    Gong.
Seventh Ronnd���They come up
fresh, but Jeff is slow iu getting into
action. Shaikey got in a stiff jab to
the neck in the opening rush. Jeff
ducked into two right-banded upper-
cuts. Both landed henvy body blows.
Neither shows a great aniouut of science. In a hot mix-up, give and take,
Sharkey has all tho best of it. Jeff
gets in a left, to face nnd Sliarkey hns
all the best of it. Jeff does likewise
twice.
Eighth Round���Sharkey forced matters witb left to neck. Jell' springs
from Sharkey's rushes. The boilermaker cuts the sailor's eye with a
right jab. Sharkey got in a wind-
killer with the left, and as they mixed
!pnt   left and right on  his  rival.

in left to Jeff's face nnd opeus the
champion's nose with a terrific lefthander. Sharkey fought bis man to
the ropes and got u light left jab in
tbe face for his pains. They rough it
on the ropes. Jeff's face is covered
witb blood but Sharkey gives him no
opening until just as the gong sounds,
when tne boilermaker got in a right-
hand uppercut to tbe bead.
Sixteenth Round���For tbe first time
Jeff lends first. Sharkoy still uses his
left effectively to Jeff's neck and
throat. Thero is a big bunch just over
his nose, ugly looking and sore.
They clinch after an exchange of body
blows. Jeff jabs with left to head
and again touches Sharkey's stomach
with a half swing. The boilermaker
begins to use his crouching attitude,
but the snilor gets inside and does telling work with the left.
Seventeenth Round���Jeffries keeps
away from Sharkey's rushes und looks
appealing!; at Slier, Sharkey gets

the same old spot on Jim's jaw. A
sharp siraight left from Sharkey stood

The newspaper reader has little
thought for anything but the war.
He looks eagerly for news from South
Africa. Let us hope that for tho next
two or three weeks thero will be little
to excite him. The dispatches try to
he reassuiing, and perhaps there is
nothing in tho situation at Ladysrnith
to cause apprehension. One cannot
help observing, however, that beneath
the surface there is a feeling thst something disastrous may occur. Thore cannot be any better wish than that General White may hold his own until
Buller 3an be heard from. His force
is much inferior in numbers to those
opposed to him, and today it is a fifth
less than it was a week ago. If he can
hold his position, he will be doing as
much a3 oan he expected of him. Tbe
Boers may lace discipline, but they
havo courage and determination, nnd
the defeats and successes of the campaign so far have served to whip them
into steadiness. There is danger that
they may prove too strong for the little army that is defending Lady-
smith, and the best news from them foi
somo will be tbat there is no news
Unfortunately tbe situation elsewhere is the same. There is nothing
10 hope for at Kimberley and Mafeking, except that the gallant fellows
who are defending them will hold out
until succor comes. That cannot
reach them for three weeks yet, and
in the meantime we can desire nothing
better than to have the quietest sort
of news irom South Africa.
At Winnipeg, on his way home from
England, Mr. Turner said he had no
intention of dropping ont of British
Colnmbia politics. Beyond that it was
unspeakably bad, we have never been
uble to understand whnt was liK'uut by
Tumerisni; notwithstanding this
shadowy reputation however, we
think it is a matter for general congratulation that a gentleman of Mr.
Turner's political experience and high
personal character is to remain in public life and to take his full share of its
responsibilities. If the Legislature had
more Turners the Province would be
in better shape than it is today.
TWO DETERMINED ROBBERS.
Vancouver, B. C, Nov. a.���The
steamer Miowcra from Sydney today
bripgs a sensational story of an attempted robbery of the Bank of New
South Wales in Melbourne of ��10,000.
Chief Cashier Pearson was temporarily
absent from his desk when two men
entered (lie bank, one of them asking a
sub-treasurer for change for half a
crown. As the teller turned to prc-
oure the change he was confronted
with tbo head and shoulders of a second man who was half over a wooden
barrier with ��10,000 in his hands.
The Teller forced the thief to drop the
money, both robbers hurrying from
the bank, but had tbe effrontery to return to the bauk within IC minutes
and make another attempt to capture
the money. In this they were not
successful. Two men named Verger
and Harris have been arrested for the
attempted theft.

A great deal of nonsense is written
over the Boaurassa affair. For instance, it is said that in tbe reasons
Mr. Bourassa gave for resigning he no
doubt bad "law and logic" on his
side. He had neither the one nor the
other. Tho principal reason assignee
was that ic sen.iing a contingent we
wore surrendering our prerogatives as
a self-governing Colony, and establishing a precedent which would justify
the Mother Country in drawing on
Canadian resources in all times of
emergency. There can be no surrender
of prerogative in a voluntary offer ot
aid; nor, as Mr. Belconrt aptly puts
it, can a free gift be taken as a precedent for a compulsory one. It is our
privilege to offer a contingent to
China if we so desire. Mr. Bourassn
resigned because he thought tbe step
would be popular with his compatriots, and would bring votes to tbe
party he srpports. Mr. Tarte is more
French than British, but it was for
the same reasons he openly opposed
the contingent. The unmistakeable
temper of the country has brought
thera all to their senses. Sir Wilfrid
Lauiier's loyalty slopped over the
dook when bidding adien to the volunteers at CJuebeo; only a few days previously he had done all he could to
disconrage their going.

WANTED!
Winter is near, and the town is
without coal. There is not only no
coal, hut no one seems to have any
idea wheu thero will he a supply. We'
get coal from Lethhridge, from the
Crow's Nest, and from Anthracite.
None of these places are beyond reach,
yet at thu season of tho year when we
should he receiving generously of their
product there is absolute famine. The
dealers have had their orders placed a
long time, and the famine is not to be
attributed to neglect on their part.
The trouble lies with the railway. All
available cars, it is said, are employed
in hauling out Ma.-.-iloba wheat. This
may bo a convenience for the railway,
and the wheat deulers are no doul't rie-
ligbterl ; hut of much greater importance than the pleasure anrl convenience
of these is the comfort of the households that are without fuel. Tbe
wheat can wait, if neoensaiy ; winter,
with its attendant stoves and furnaces,
will not wait. If the town has to depend nincli longer on the supply of
wood, thore will be much raftering.
It wants coal, and it expects the railway to supply it without further
delay.

The conjecture that the man Quig-

TO TEST THE LAW.
A  special   to   the   Rossiand   Miuer
from Grand   Forks  says:   Clarence J.
McQuaig, of Montreal, made   an   im
nortant announcement here  whilst  on
his way to Republic
"An eminent legal authority," Jhe
Haid, "has advised the management of
the Pnyno mine that the eight-hour
law is unconstitutional. In all likli-
hond n lest case will bo made in order
to determine tbo authority ot tbe Provincial Parliament to draft legislation
thai has caused so much trouble between labor and capital. The measnre
was not sought by tho miners. We
contemplate starting up work in the
Payne, paying &i 50 for 10 hours. If
we are fined, the case will be appealed
and if need be, appealed to the Privy
Council.''

I        SOUTH FOBK NOTES. ti
���������������������������������������������������������������������������������+���
The upper end of the South Fork of
Knslo Creek is undergoing unpreee-
dented mining activity, a pack train
for Camp Mansfield Koing np the trail
every day. Besides this a dozen or so
tons 01 stuff is being unoked into Mr.
Mansfield's two camps from Slocan
Oity. The camp on the Twin Lakes
claim has been enlarged by the addition of a cook and dining house, .vhile
the bunk house has bean fitted up with
spring beds, mattresses aud feather
pillows, ami is lighted by gasoline gas
lumps. These ate luxuircs that no
other camp in such an altitude in the
Province can boast. On the Bertha
claim, a recent addition to Mr. Mans
field's holdings, a cabin has jost been
completed nud work has been commenced on a seven hnndred foot tunnel to tap the Joker lead. The tunnel
on the Crescent is being pushed forward rapidly and -the showing continues to be very good. Both these tunnels will be worked by three shifts a
duy all winter.
The Joker people have just about
laid in their winter's supplies and
will work three shifts on their shaft
all winter. The work will probably
be done by contract. Machinery is
now in place for hoisting the ore from
a depth of thrco hundred feet. The
ore in the bottom of the shaft is very
rich aud it increases in value as the
work progresses. Work is also being
one on the Derby claim, in the Joker
grouD. Mr. J. J. Fleutot, ou behalf
of his company which owns the Joker,
has posted notice of his intention to
take up 160 acres of land in the vicinity of the Joker. The area he outlines
includes several claims in the camp,
the owners of which aie up in arms
against the granting of the request on
the ground that they are entlitled to
the surface rights of their claims. It
is the intention of nearly all the e
owners to do sufficient work to secure
a crown grant for their olainib and if
the surface rights are given away ty
the Government, the crown granting
will be interfered with and tho market value of the claims seriously reduced with. The Joker and Derby
claims are minus timber aud the application for land for farming purposes
is undoubtedly an effort to secure the
necessary timber off some one else's
claims. The land mentioned is not
much use from a farming standpoint
as nothing but mountain goats and
eagles could he raised on it.
The road np tbe South Fork has been
built above the Black Fox and is now
being continued as a sleigh road to
Marguerite Falls, Camp Mansfield.
Next spring it will be built as a wagon
road to the same poiut, so Kaslo will
at last have a district opened up that
has already   lain   idle years too   long.
Tbe JoLer company has a good Irai1
built up the mountain from the end
of the sleigh rund. The completion of
this loan will bring Camp Mansfield
wit;.in fonr hours f the South roil.

Mr. Mansfield, who is uow in Nelson, will visit tbe camp again uexi
week and will make final arrangements for the winter's work. Twelve
claims there are under his management and when the winter is over the
woik then done will have fully proved
the distriot.
���   ���   ���
The Baltimore is oue of the most
promising looking prospects in the
country. Mr. Geoige Green, the owner, has built a large cabin on the
property and intends to work it all
winter. The property lies three miles
back of the Silver King and has a good
lead, of gold and silver.
��   ���   ��
Mr. James D. Sword, M. E., has just
returned from the Slocan district, and
iu reply to queries put to him by a
Rossland Miner reporter, stated that
the whole of ihe silver-lead district of
the Slocan is quieter uow than it has
been for foul years. All the big mines
are practically closed down, and but
little work other than a small amount
of development is bring carried on. It
is a great pity that an amicable arrangement cannot be arrived at between masters and men, so as to reestablish the yearly increasing nativity
of this district. As the outside puli-
lio regard the mineral statistics of
British Columbia ns a criterion of its
promise as a country for mining investment, tbe falling off of the pro
duction of silver and lead will cause
a considerable shrinkage in the aggregate mineral production of the Province and lessen the confidence of
outside investors, who will not always
investigate the cause, and will only
look at the result It was predicted,
judging from the appearance of the
larger mines of the Slocan, tbat the
output for 1899  would  largely  exceed
that of previous years, and that it
would be probably double as great as
last year.
The mines, without an exception,
never looked lietter than ut the present
moment and as nothing but development work is beiug done they should
be in a position to produce an enormous quantity of silver-lead immediately they commence active operation.
The Slocan Star mine, which at one
time was the largest ore producer in
the distirct, now promises to regain its
supremacy, as the development has disclosed large bodies of ore. The Ivanhoe shonld cime to the front very
shortly as a big moducer, which will
be as soon as they commence shipping
in earnest. Ou the Ruth the 100-tnn
conceutrator, aerial tramway and a
seven-drill compressor plant have been
erected and aro ready to run. The
Noble Five developjient is rapidly
proving that tho large coucentratiug
mill, although built prematurely, will
hnve all the ore it can handle before
long. The foregoing mines, together
with the Payne, Last Chance, Idaho,
Monitor, Reco Whitewater Deep, and
several others, which are all dividend
payers and now merely doing a small
amount of development work, are ready
to jump into the front as producers as
soon as a settlement has been reacted
between tbe two parties at issue in the
labor trouble.
JEFFRIES WINS
THE Bia FIGHT
(Continued From First Page.i
Mr. James   M.    Anderson,   superintendent of the Chicora gioup which is
being operated by   the Gold Hill Mining <fc Development   Company, of   Toronto, has decided to continue   mining!
operations all the   winter.    A trail 3>j,
miles long  has been constructed   from j
the head of Howser Lake to the  mine, j
The  point   where the trail leaves   the'
lake is the head of   navigation, aud 11
miles above   Duncan City, where both !
the 0, P. R. and the Kaslo and Lardo-
Duncan roads run in.  Bunk houses nud |
a cook house have been constructed   at j
the mine and six   tons of supplies will
be sent up   immediately.    At   present:
Mr. Anderson is tunneling in   on   the
vein, which shows up five feet wide of
quartz heavily impregnated   with   ga- .
lena.    The ore taken out during development will be rawhided   down to the
lake, and shipped   to   the smelter  via
Duncan City next sprint.
���   ���   ���
During the coming winter there will
be considerable activity among the
mines in the Ymir district. It is
probable that the pay roll for the winter months will far exceed that of any
time previous. The Ymir mine has
nearly ICO men employed at the miue
and mill, and it is probable that before
long this foice will be doubled, as the
difficulty of obtaining miners seeni-s
n iw to hnve been nearly overcome.
Theie are about 80 miners at woik
and more an going i j everyday. The
chief forcf, however, is employed at
���he mill and on the ontsi le construction works. Tne lattei includes the

champion all over tho ring with left
jabs. Jeff put in right and left but
they were weak and did no harm.
Sharkey comes to close quarters to
avoid a left awiug. Jeff rushed and
ducked into a left swing.
Nineteenth Round���Jeff spars cautiously, but Sharkey commences business without ceremony. The sailor
put left swing to neck and right to
heart. They clinch at every blow,
Jeff taking advanatge of the rest. The
sailor insists upon fighting every step
of the way,and Jeff looks as if he wished it were over. Sbnrkey slugged Jeff
with left and right but got a Btraight
left   from the shoulder.
Twentieth Round���Jeff jumps at
Sharkey, who ducks and. forces the
champion to a corner, putting a
straight left to Jeff's nose. Jim
counters to jaw. They mix ficnelv
The sailor is watching his chance for a
knock out, but Jeff gets the left to the
sailor's nose aud takes like medicine
in return. Jeff uppercuts the sailor
with right. The champion puts left
jab to the sailor's mouth. Sbnrkey
sends in a left swing which misses,
aud the gong stops hostilities.
Twenty-First Round���Jeff dodges
Sharkey's left but the sailor puts two
right punches to tbe champion 's kidneys. They clinch. They exchange
lefts to face but Sharkey has the ad-
vantage of every encounter. The sailor
is tiling himself. He takes a right
uppercut to the jaw and then clinches.
They exchange kindly wallops. They
clinch, then Shaikey puts a right full
in Jim's mouth. The champion is
fresher as tbe gong sounds.
Twenty-second Round���They fiddle
around the ring. Jeff plants a right
on the sailor's wind, but gets a heavy
left in the neck in return as they
clinch. The sailor open3 his eye against
the champions head. Jeff smiles at
the sight of Sharkey's blood. The
sailor hooks in his right twice, making sweat aud blood fly in all directions. Jim uppercuts with right,
catching the sailor full on the chin.
They rush again and Siler has to pull
them apart. The fight is furious aud
the crowd in a delirium of enthusiasm.
Twenty-third Round.���Jeff lies comes
to action without warning. They mix
it nnd Tom takes every advantage.
As they clinch the sailor wallops the
kidneys with left. Both Tom
O'Rourke aud Tommy Ryan are ('caching from their corners. The sailor
forces matters, but is growing a trifle
tired. They exchange fierce lefts without hjrm for either sida. Jeff rushes,
buthe becomes perplexed when Tom
