Ladysmith, and Estcourt is satisfactory, with a hone that General White
may yet completely retrieve his reputation and his force may merge triumphant from the ordeal through
which it is now passing.
London, Nov. 7.���Tho newspapers
here continue to express keen pleasure
at the sympathy of the United States,
The St. James Gazette snvs:
"Few more graceful examples could
be imagined of the courteous spirit of
American sympathy with this country,
which has been so often evident of
ate, than the project of the ladies'
hospital ship, which will probably he
fitted out with ninny of those American nurses whose services ware so
highly valuod during the Cuban war.
This is the first example of a hospital
ship provided by a nation which is at
peace for another during the stress of
war, and the widespread and geueioiis
responses to it appeals from both sides
of the Atlantic shows how warmly
the merciful idea is accepted by the
citizens of both countries."
Loudon, Nov. 8.���News has just
arrived from Mafeking showing that
up to Ootoher 25, tho Boers contiu
ued the bombardment, tiring as many
as tlnee hundred shells in SB honis,
though causing but little damage and
wounding only four men. That day
they closed in all around the town
and made a determined attempt to rush
it. The garrison turned out to a man
and delivered a terrific, rifle and Maxim lire -whin i speedily stampeded the
Boers, who were driven over mines
which exploded nun scattered them in
all directions. It is believed nt Mafeking that the enemy Buffered heavily
audi s uot likely to make another at-
tempt to storm the (own.
London, Nov. 8.���Evidently more
detailed reports of General White's do-
nms at Lndysmith will be retcivol before tho public will be able to form an
idea of what- ha- happened. Reports
fro:ii various sources show that aiiolber
important reconnaisanoe or engagement occurred on S iturday to thu south
of Ladysmith ; and a Capetown newspaper renorts that two thousand Boers
were captured   there.
The suggestion of Sir Kedvers Buller
in his dispatch ,to the War "Ollico on
Sunday that the name of General
French had been given in mistake for
that of Colonel Krooklehurst iu ad-
Vlea to him by pigeon post from Dur-
bau, is now explained by a dispatch
from Pietermaritzburg which says
that General French has lotf Durban
for Oape Colony. Evidently General
Buller was aware of this.
Loudon, Nov. 8.���Aooordiug to spec

General White agroed to this ou con
dition that they would make no mce-

on Thursday until sunset, at the ex

Krupp guns. Confirmation has been obtained of reports that General Schalk
has been commander of Vryburg. A
general Boer advance is not thought
probable. Means has been taken to protect Pietermaritzburg against any attacks, and also to relieve Ladysmith

and quick tempered."

FRIDAY'S BATTLE.
Estcourt, Natal, Nov. 5. ��� (Sunday.)
��� A reliable native has brought in a
confirmation of Friday nigbt'B figbt
south of Ladysmith. A reoonnaisance
in force was made by a British division near Oolenso, which had been attacked by the Boers. The British infantry charged the Boers who were
strongly posted on Globler's Kloof |
hill and drove them down ou the plain
toward the Tugela River when tbe
British cavalry, exeouting a flue flank
movement, charged the Boers almost
annihilating them. The plain was
strewn witb slain Boers. An armored
train left for Colenso with a company
of the Dublin Fusileers and a railroad
engine carrying n staff to repair the
track. This is supposed to have occurred on Saturday as no firing was
heard.
Montreal, Nov. 7.���The jnry in the

responsible for the death of the three
victims for not  having fire escapes.
wanted in Bristol,Maine. The Bristol
authorities have been advised of his arrest, but it will be a loug time before
tbey will be able to lay hands upon him
as tbe police have a straight case
against Edwards and his pals, and the
general expectation is thnt they will
net about 14 years. Montreal is infested by a bad gang of safe crackers ut
present, and an example will be made
of tho men under arrest.
IN SOUTH  AMERICA.
Montreal, Nov. 7.���Hon. Honeysett
was killed at Fret man's Fertilizing
Works yesterday. He fell down the

Washington, Nov. 7.���Tbe Russian
Ambassador, Count Cassino, who is
just back from a long visit to Europe,
was seen at the Russian embassy to
day, and talki-d ou international questions which have engaged public attention recently. As to tbe European
sentiment concerning the South Afri-
oan war, Count Cassino said: "Of
course all Europe is watching this conflict with profound interest and concern, but it is interest of observance,
and there is nn suggestion Or thought
of any intervention or move of any
kind from outside quarters Tho loss
of life which is occurring is practically regretable and it is io the interest
of all that peace should be speedily restored. "
Durban, Natal, Sunday Evening,
Nov. 5 ���The Boers have invaded Ing-
wayninn, Zululand, and looted and
burned the public buildings and
stores. The magistrate, police aud
other inhabitants fled toward  Eshow.
London, Nov. 7.���General Lord
Wolseley, the Commander-in-chief, has
written to Lady Randolph Churchill,
thanking l.er for the effort of the
American ladies in England, in fitting
out ii hospital ship for South Africau
waters.    He says:
"I am only ton anxious to help yon
in Ibis matter, in order to show yon
how thoroughly our army, and indeed
the whole nation, nprecinte this evidence of the interest American ladies
take in our sick nnd wounded." The
Maine will snil on November 25 for
the Cape with Lady Churchill ou

In talking of the positiou prior to
his doparture Mr. Sohlacht snid :
"I never saw such a mixed up and
lawless place as was Johannesburg
when I left there. Before this war tbe
citv had an on'lander populntion of
about (10,000 of which the grenter part
was English, with tbe Germans next,
while I doubt if there were over 100
Boers in tbo place. Of courso the Oity
Government and polioo were in the
bands of the Boers, but few Boers cared to live thore because the city contained so many outlauders, whom they
bate. Tbe week before I h'lt Johannesburg, 80,000 foreign residents left
Estcourt, Natal, Sunday Evening,
Nov. 5.��� It is now possible to furnish
offioial details of Friday's fighting
around Ladysmith. Tbe Boers artillery fire was accurate and well sustained, but ineffective. The British
cavalry was constantly out, the investment nor being close enough to prevent
this. Cavalry and artillery under Col.
Hroeklchuret about noon nrove the enemy from all their positions with great-
slaughter.
This attack was directed against a
reported move of tbe enemy toward
Maritzburg. Our artillery shelled
three of tbe enemy's guns into si
bnee. Tbe British casualties were
slight. The Boers are not shelling
the town. Their artillery was handled
well, but is doing little damage. The
Boers profited by a flag of truce on
Thursday to send in a Transvaal artillery officer, disguised as an ambulance
driver, with the wounded, to observe
the action of the Boer artillery fire.
London, Nov. 7.���It is now virtually
decided to send another division of
10,000 men to South Africa as speedily
as possible. For this purpose, a second and third army corps will be moh-
iliz- . The second will consist of 40,-
000 men of which 10,000 will go to Africa, the rest being concentrated nt
Aldorshot in readiness for omergoucies.
The third army oorps, a nominal
affair will number 25,000 men nnd will
bn used for garrison purposes nt home.
Thus, the entire British army will virtually bo mobilized, which will be an
unprecedented occurrence.

MUSIC HALL BY-LAW.
It is proposed to submit tbe question
of a music hall to a vote of the pe >-
pie. We think it a most unfortunate
thing that any question of tbe kind
should have arisen. Respectable cities, jealous of their reputation, do uot
go about touting for music balls. They
have theui in time, bat they come
naturally; they are not frr:ed. In any
city, in all cities, as popti'atiou grows.
an element grows witb it that demands that peculiar sort of recreation
or entertainment. Respectably conducted, it is an entertainment that
gives legitimate pleasure. The need
or room ior it calls for its introduction, and then it is that (he municipal
authority steps in to regulate it. For.
like tbe liquor traffic, with which, indeed, it is allied, it is necessary to surround it with restraints to keep it
from degenerating. Here it is proposed to reverse the order, and by somewhat ostentations regulation to invite
its introduction before there is any
demand for it. We say this without
intending the sligbtes* reflection on
Aid. Hillyer. who stands in the relation of sponsor to the scheme of a music hall. Mr Hillyer is an estimable
citizen and an active and useful member of tbe Citv Council. We believe
he is as sincere as any other citizen in
the desire to promote the best interests
ot the community. He wonld not
consciously make mistakes, or deliberately run counter to tbe best public
sentiment In this case, however, we
think he has permitted his judgment
to be misled.
No one would object to a respectably
conducted music ball, for the very good
reason tbat there is nothing in a
re'pectably conducted music hall tr.
object to. But if we get one before tbc-
time is ripe for it, there is nothing
more certain than tbat it would not
long temain respectable. On this
point we are in hearty accord with
Aid. McKillop The population of Nelson i' not large enough to support a respectable music ball, and a disreputable one it does not want. To sustain
life in it, it would be necessary to
tvarie the regulations, and descend to
practices whose influence on the morals of its patrons wonld not be of the
healthiest. The proposal is Eimph
several years in advance of the times.
Let us wait until we grow to music-
hall proportions before we begin to cry
for tbat species of diversion.
We think a mistake haB been made
in permitting tbe suggestion of a music ball to be introduced with such
prominence. We think tbe Council
has made another mistake in giving it
encouragement. The members have
resolved to shift the responsibility of
accepting or rejecting the by-law on to
the people themselves. Now that
the matter ^liaB gone so far psrhap=
there is no objection to this, only ii
shonld be remembered that the referendum has not yet become an established Britisli institution. There will
be reason to complain,however, shonld
the City be put to the expense of a
special election. There is no hurry for
a music hall, nor shonld there be any
hurry :o submit the by-law. A vote
will be quit-1 Boon enO"gh if held with
the next municipal elections, or if put i

anyway, and meantime no interest is
suffering or feeling outraged.
but not   more  so   than tbe best   miii
tary expert.-   saw from the  beginning
was inevitable. When Oreat Biitain
refrained from dispatching troops in
advance of actual hostilities, she re
oonciled herself to the risk cf reverses to
the few already there Whether Uen
eral White blundered the other day is
a question by itself, bnt no one has
any reason to be smprised that he is
bottled up in Ladysmith. It was never
supposed his little army should subdue
the two Republics; if tbey cculd hold
cut and prevent an indiscriminate invasion of Natal until reinforcements
irrived it was all that could be expected. This it is believed they will do.
It is possible, however, that still
greater disaster may occur, but even
then there would be no reason to despoil of tbe final outcome. General
Buller was sent down to make South
Afrioa Eritish, and be will carry out
his order to the letter. The latest
uews. it is a pleasme to add. gives to
the situation a mui rosier hue.
LARGE WINDOWS POPULAR.
Great Demand in Kootenay Towns for
Largest Plate Glass Made.
A large amount of big plate gltss is
being shipped j almost daily to the
Kootenay country Up country "owns
nave a craze for large glass and the
lugger it is the betier it seems to satisfy. One enterprising business man
of Nelson ordered from Mr. W. P.Mel-
lor of Fort strei-t. a short time ago a
glass that was to be largpr than any iu
British Columbia. Mr. Mellor at once
wrotr- to tbe factory at St. Helens to
know if tbey could (ill the order ano
received an affirmative answer, but he
was told tn.it such a glass could noi
be bandied on a railway train. It
would have to be shipped to Liver
pool by special trnck and from tbere to
Victoria by sailing vessel. Here it
would be transferred to a Vancouver
bound steamer but at tbe Terminal
Citv the trouble would probably begin.
To get it on the train might not oe so
difficult, but to get it though tunnels
on tbe C. P. R. would be impossible.
Under these conditions the merchant
referred to had to be satisfied witb a
smaller glass, although he would hare
willingly paid for tbe extra cost for tbe
larger one.���Victoria Colonist.

WINDERMERE, B. C NELSON DAILY MINER, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 8,  1899.
A BIG- AUDIENCE
ME?-  BBOUGHAM'S  OONOEET WAS
A COMPLETE SU00ES3.
Every Number  ou   the   Excellent Pro-
giu'iime  Was   Encored���Ovation
to Mrs. Brougham.
Mrs. Eroneham has every reason to
feel proud Of the euccess of the oon-
(HU't ��iven at the Opera House last
evening. The Hnnonnoement that Nelson's peerless singer waa to leave thu
City and that last night's concert was
to be the last occasion on which she
won hi he heard here, was anffloient to
(ill the theater, Tho uncial "Everybody" was there anil thnt thn programme thoroughly pleased was evident from the faot that every numbei
oil the programme, except the opening
and closing choruses, was encored.
Bows of acknowledgment were not
sufficient to satisfy the audience and
in every ense another selection was
demanded, As was lit and proper���
and as would have happened anyway
���Mrs. Brougham was awarded the
heartiest recaption and treatment, She
was in exoelltnt voice and, as usual,
completely oh armed her hearers. She
wns down for three numbers, but these
were swelled into six by tho enthusiastic applause of the mdience. When
she appeared for the final encore she
was awarded n regular ovation. There
wns nn unused organ on the stage and
everyone expected to hear the "Lost
Chord"witu the cello, violin, piano
and organ aooompanimont, but it wur
not forthcoming and, of course, every-
ouo was disappointed. While talking
of disappointments���there were so tow
of them that it will not take long to
dismiss them���it might be mentioned
that Mr. Oliver's voi e would have
been lieanl to great advantage in some
stirring patriotic song. There had been
gocd news from tbe Transvaal, and
everybody's patriotism was up to concert piton, bnt while thero was a
Scotch nnd an Irish song, thero was
nothing English���nothing to work off
the enthusiasm that every member of
the autlienoe felt. However, Mr. Oliver did not bring his bundle of patriotic music .withjhiia for when he left
Bnssland the war news was very depressing
li is nnecesiary to oritlciai a concert
at which everj number was encored.
The encores spi-ak for themselves aud
when these who pav to get in are sat-
isficd, he.l is 11 poor "dead head"
new pnpei man to say? Until; might
lie iu ntioned thai Mrs. Brongbam and
Mr, Oliver iverei just as good as they
pected to bi '<< irr Steiner was
delightfnl on his mournful cello. Mr,
Kydd never Seemed to be in such ox-,
eellent voice Mr, Mnotiouald was i ap-
ital, Miss Carey whs a pleasant surprise for it was her first appearance
here. Mrs. Archbold showed herself to
be a violinist of ability and Mrs.
Troup's sinning earned for her a hearty
encore. The two selections by the chorus were by no means the least pleasing numbers of (he excellent programme, althongb the presence of a
conductor would have materially aided
the second s lection. Mr. Brougham
was indefatigable and no small credit
for the success of the concert rests with
him. His accompaniments are a great,
help to the singers and as ho presided
at the piano for every number his work
was by no means light.
LOCAL  AJND  PERSONAL
The C. P. R. 's new 15-car barge, Nn.
18, will be launched the latter end of
this week,
Jt is expected that the repairs ot the
steamer Moyie will he ilnislied by tho
beginning of next week.
Messrs. Astley & Palmer, tho lessees
of the rink, are having tho finishing
touches put to the rink so as to be
ready (or the first frost.
There are several expert lady hookey
players in Nelson, and a Ladies' Hockey Olub is to he one of the new organisations nf the City this winter.
Tho Junior hockey players will hold
their meeting on Friduv evening in the
old I. 0. O. F, hall on Kootenny
Steet, next to the pesent brick structure.
In the absence from the Oity of Police Magistrate Grease, Henry Karnev
was yesterday charged before the Mayor with being drunk and disorderly.
He was lined $5 and costs.
Mr. 0. Dell-Smith, an old time Nelson newspaper man, who has spent
the past few months in Kossland, returned to tho City yesterday and was
welcomed by his hosts of friends. Mr.
Dell-Stnith joins The Miner staff today.
Mr. W. F. Brougham has sold his
house and lot on Stanley street to Mr.
E, K. Woakes, end has purchased two
lots in Bngustown on which he will
erect a bungalow residence. Mr. G.
Onitis,the architect, has been instructed to get out the necessary plans.
While Mr. Harry Wright's appointment as mining recorder has not yet
been oilieially announced, there is no
dotlbl that he hns got tho position. In
the meantime there is a vacancy iu
the recorder s olllce which throws
considerable extra work on the re-
imiindei of tho staff.
fiusiness in the 0. f. B. freight
sheds still continues tn be briRk. The
employees are kept bosy night and day
anrl it looks as if things will continue
in this way for somo time. Parsons
Produce Oo. nre doing n great deal of
'hipping to the Boundary Country and
also receiving u lot of butter, eggs and
potatoes.
The small boys of tho Oitv nre going
tn have au assoolaiton football match
on the recreation grounds next Saturday morning. The youngsters are
practising vigorously on th.: bcItuo!
grounds every day, and a hot gnme is
expected, which their seniors might
watch and gather pointers. Tom Gallon is to be captain of one side, and
Vivian Gallon of the other.
One of the pigs recently imported
by P. Burns & Co., strayed from its
fellows at the 0. P. R. yards some
days ago and his proclivities for roaming about marie bira very hard tn capture. His prolonged liberty gave bim
an exaggerated opinion of himself so a
few days ago lie attempted to derail a
freight train. The result was that he
was neatly carved into various uncooked rousts and chops aud the Chinamen,
who live in the neighborhood, havo
become imbued with the idea that the
ghost of the porker walks each   night.
Ou Saturday night an individual
succeeded in robbing severnl of the
merohnnts in town by purchasing
small articles nnd then presenting
checks of varying amounts in payment
therefnr, wliich purported to be Bigned
by Mr. Honeyniiin, of the foundry.
The checks subsequently turn-id out tn
be forgeries, und the merchants are out
the goods and the change they gave
Two checks for $110 one for $14 nnd several for smaller amounts are known to
have been thus cashed. The police yesterday were given n description of the
thief, but have not apprehended him
as yet, nnd it is thought he may have
left town.
In yesterday's issue of The Tribune
tho following appeared : "The Tribune
is of opinion that Mayor Neelands erred in stating that the Oity was not
concerned iu the closing of the road
leading to the Nelson & Port Sheppard
depot." Mayor Neelands stated no
such thing, and he wishes it to bo un
dei>tood that whnt he did say was that
as the section of the road which it was
proposed to close lay outside tho City
limits, the Oity Council cuuld not legally appropriate any money for the
purpose of koeping open thatpaitinnlar
portion of the road, and that consequently th. bnsiue-B men of tho town
should mke steps. The Mayor recognized fully that the business interests
of the town and (he convenience of
the public were affected and concern
ed in the matter.

ALASKA MILITARY ROAD.
The military road from Valdns northward into the cooper country of Alaska is now completed for a distance of
seventy-eight miles. This pan of the
tr:>il is through the most difficult district of the entire distance, getting
through the canyon out of Valdes.
The same, amount of labor nnd expense
next year wlil he sufficient to linish
the frail, although the distance which
is yet to be covered    is   much greater.
In the coming spring Major Ray's
men will approach from Eagle City
and will meet Captain Aberorombie's
men before the season lu ever By
thai time there will be a good roan,
over which pai '; trains < an be driven
tbo entire distance Irom Prince William Sound to the Yukon over all all-
Ameriean route, with nil small streams
bridged and ferryboats on the larger
ones
The cattle sent in for Major Ray
will go over this military road and
will b�� able to find feed all the way
in. Last wintor a horse which wandered off wintered alone at Lake Man-
tasta, having no other food than what
he foraged for himself, and he lived
through the winter on this and was iu
good condition when found and picked
up last spring. The road can be traversed its entiie distance without going
nenr a glacier.
The Government has put up (15 tons
of hay in the interior and is wintering some stock. Profiting by last year's
experience, this was all done this season before tbe first frost, which was on
September 20, una the hay is in excellent condition.
BRITISH COAL EXPORTS.
"The exports of coal for the first
three quarters of 181)9 have been the
lnrgest in the history of tbe trade,"
says an English coal-trnde journal.
"With tho coal shipped for the use of
stoamers engaged in the foreign trade,
they exceed 40,000,00(1 tons, being more
than fonr times the total output of
coal in tho United Kingdom, in the
first year of the century. Our best
customer lniR boon Prance whioh bus
taken Joloso on 5,000,000 tons in the
nine months, nr moio than 1,00(1,000
tons in excess of tho quantity taken iu
tho corresponding period of lisfis.
Our exports to Russia also show an
advance of nioro than 1,200,000 tons in
excess of tliOBe of any previous corresponding period."
" Looking back-I see I never
saw before."
This is the exclamation of satisfied
customers.
We have fitted successfully stubborn

" HERE'S ANOTHER FELLOW READY."
Windermere, Nov. 4. ��� (Special. )���
The Paradise group consisting of three
claims owned by John Watson, James
Jeffry, and Thomas Jones was bonded
by A. C. and W. B. Mitchell-Iunes,
representing the New Britisli Columbia Syndicate of London, Eng., for
f 160,000, The deal was completed on
the 30th of September, and recorded on
the 2Cth of October. Mr. Innes is now
putting in a winter camp and intends
working a force of men throughout the
Winter. It is without any exception
one of the greatest propositions in the
north west. There is over 78 foet of ore
which will average across the vein |H0
to the ton in all   values.
Tho Silver Tip on Toby Creek will
be worked throughout the winter by
a French syndicate.
Peterborough undoubtedly takes the
lead as the main towri in the district.
H. E. Neave, E. M., formerly of the
Transvaal, representing a Rossland
corporation, purchased the land from
tbe C. P. R. during the fall of 1891).
The town is sitnated between Toby aud
Horse Thief Creeks. The corporation
has already completed a wagon road
from the town to the steamboat landing ou the Columbia River a distance
of three-quarters of a milo, also a wagon road five miles up Toby Creek and
a wagon road live miles np Horso Thief
Creek. Buildings are springing up in
a way that would remind one of the
early days in Rossland and West Kootenay towns in general. It is understood that tbe O. P. R. controls a half
interest in the townsite, and that they
turned over 400 acres of land adjoining
the townsite to the Peterborough town-
site corporation. H. E, Neave, Mining Engineer, manager of the corporation, is an up-to-date all around hustler with many years' experience in the
Transvaal, South Africa Republic.
On the_Delpbine mine R. R. Bruce
is working a force of 16 men under tbe
foremanship of Mr. Beattie, formerly of
the Reco mine, Sandon.
The Derby Mining Co., owners of
the Swansea mine, are sacking ore lor
shipment.
The Red Line group of mines, on
McDonald Jreek, will commence raw-
hiding ore as soon as snow permits.
All tbe ore will be shipped from Peterborough, B. 0.
��� ���   ���
The cabins on the Birdseye claim on
Morning Mountain have beon completed, aud Mr. Ernest Wilson leaves for
the mine in the morning, with a force
of ten men. There is no truth in the
report which has been published that
an extension of the bond was recently
a��ked for owing to a payment not having been made. The payment referred
to is not due until Deoember 1,
��� *   *
The Eva Group on Fish Creek, in
tho Trout Lake district, has been bonded to outside capital by Messrs. Twee-
dlo and Hutchinson, of C'omaplix.
This property is the most extraordinary
strike in the point of value that bus
been made in the Lardeau division.
Although Fish Creek and its tributaries have always been known as one of
the richest sections of what is universally termed on the outside as the Lar-
denu, still thie strike has thrown tho
bulk of tbe other properties in the
shade as regards the valuo of its sur
faco rock. The mineral obtained from
the property is gold, and th.i cropping?
run from $100 to $1100 in gold, Cory
Menhinick and J. A. Magee have
claims on this lead and on their holdings the lead as exposed is about HO
feet in wid'b nud containing values as
stated above, this, it is expe.it.d, will
give au   impetus to development oper
a tions,
��  ���  ���
The Quoeu Bess Company is putting
in a boiler and two machine drills.
* ���   *
There is about III tons of J ore on the
dump of the Hartnoy group near Kaslo
und the development work is being
pushed. The owners of the group
have allowed an extension of (II) days
lo tho bonders for the initial payment,
��� ��   *
B. P. Briggs has uncovered a huge
deposit of galena oro on a small tribu
tary of the South Fork of Kaslo Oroek,
north of the Black Fox group. He has
two locations called the Monarch and
the Province. The lead when exposed
is fully uino feet wide, from 12 to 20
inches of whioh is clean galena nnd
the remainder ooncoutruting material.
(Written for The Miner.)
They say our old pal Tommy is a-g-etting reg'lar beans,
From the Boers in the Transvaal far away;
And although he is outnumbered and the big gun round him screams,
Bye and bye there's going to be the deuce to pay.
Though defeat may start the scoring- with our true and trusted friend,
There's success to follow shortly in the van ;
And if England needs some helping hand her old flag to defend,
Here's another fellow ready, if she wants another man.
"Here's   another   fellow   ready!" is   to be the   battlecry,
By the men that live where'er the old Jack flies ;
If another   man   is   wanted, there  he is, to do   and   die ;
And he'll fight for Queen and Country till  he dies.
You will find these fellows living 'neatli the sunny Southern Cross,
And from  East to West in Canada you can
Be sure to find all Britons with this vow deep in their hearts:
" Here's another fellow ready, if she wants another man ! "
What tho' France may be delighted with the vict'ries of the Boers,
And Russia getting ready for a fight,
In   order  to  get  India  and  foment   Eastern   wars,
And���if she can���to crush Old England's might;
And   the  European   nations   all  would  like   to see  this  done ;
But they find there is an anthem to be sung,
With a voice of seventy millions ringing like a mighty one :
" Here's another fellow ready, and we speak the British tongue ! "
Yes, good old Cousin Jonathan and Brother Johnny Bull
Must hand in hand together  rule the world,
For   Progress   and   for   Freedom,  and in   this   direction pull ;
And bigotry forever must be hurled. [bright ;
They must lift the poor, downtrodden, and must make their lives more
They must help the weak and fallen, and the torch of Knowledge light ;
They must tell the other nations that henceforth 'tis wrong to fight���
That there's two strong fellows ready to insist upon this Right !
Omahu.

Berlin, Nov. 7.���The recruits for
the Imperial corps took the oath of allegiance today in the Lustgarden,
in the presence of the Emperor and
his staff, and the foreign officers. As
eaoh brigade was sworn His Majesty

the Emperor reminded the guard of
their oath, saying: "A man's word is
his bond." aud exhorting them to do
their duty "as soldiors and Christians, ''
Kegarding the aliened scheme for arbitrating the Transvaal question, a
semi-official dispatch has been issued
as follows:
"Nothing whatever is known here
f a common plan of action npon the
part of Rusia, France or Spain in the
Transvaal question. In any case it
may be positively stated that no such
plans have beon brought to the knowledge of the German Government from
any quarter whatever, and therefore it
has never been in the position to reject
sach or similar proposals.''

U. S. ELECTIONS YESTERDAY.
Buffalo, N. Y., Nov. 7.���Iu this oity
and Erie county, the Republican victory was complete, their entire ticket
being elected by majorities ranging
from 1,000 up. The principal officials
eleoted were Oity Treasurer, Philip
Gerst; Supt. of Education, H. F. Em-
eron ; Police Justice, Thomas Murphy.
The council stands seven Republicans
to two Demorcuts and the aidermiunin
board, Republicans, 111; Democrats, 2.
In the city and oounty tbe Republicans elected five of the eight as embly
men.
New York, Nov. 7.���Generally
speaking the election in New York
State is a Republican victory.
Philadelphia, Pa.,, Nov. 7.���In this
citv the Republican plurality will
reach 40,000, which is smaller than usual, owing to the light vote.
Natal, the scene of tho most important battles of the Boer war,is a' mountainous country, not easily accessible
by laud, and so sitnated wilh respect
10 British military centres that the
problem of sea transports is complicated by the magnificent distances
which it is necessary to cover. Il is
approximately (1,000 miles from Southampton to Capetown, and fiom Capetown to Durban is about. K00 miles.
Moreover, in order to ronch Durban
British troous embarked at Bombay in
India must travel !i,B00 miles. Durban, which is described as a most attractive place for residence, has a population of about 40,0110, and is distant
70 miles from PMermaritznorg, tbe
oapital. This city ie reached hy railroad, running almost directly west
from the coast, aud is the next considerable town of tlio colony, having a
population of 35,000, in this short run
of 70 milos tbe rise is 2.2IK feet, and
as the road penetrates tlm interior the
elevations are Still greater. Ladysmith,
tho headquarters Ol General White,
the British commander, is Illl miles
beyond Pietermarhitzburg and 11,28-1
feet above sea level. It is a small place
of only LfiOO inhabitants, but is au
important, junction, One railroad lino
branches out here for the Transvaal on
the north, another for tho Fieo State
on the west. In both directions thore
is more mountain climbing. Harrismith, just over Ihe Free Stale bor-
dor, has an elevation of 5,2fi0 feet. Van
Reenen's Pass an elevation of 5,500
feot. To tho south is Mount Tintwa
7,500 feet, near which is Tintwa Pass.
From these places aud the passes further north the Free State burghers
may advance so as to inclose Ladysmith OU three sides. On the other
road toward the Transvaal are Elands
Laagte, Waschbink and Glencoe, all
oentiea of recent operations, and Dundee, where the first battle was fought,
is about live miles oast of Glencoe on
a spur.
The following figures aro of interest:
Capetown is about 8,000 miles from
Southampton, and it is 800 miles farther ou to Durban, which is 11,550
miles from Bombay,. It is 70 miles
from Durban to Pietermnrltssburg, the
capital of Natal, and 181) miles from
Durban to Ladysmith, whicb is 42
miles   from   Gleucoe,  47  miles   from
Baltimore, Md., Nov. 7.-���John Walter Smith, Democrat, was elected Gov-
ernor of the State by   10,000 majority.
Richmond, Va., Nov. 7.���In voting

Senate iu this State, the Democrats
made a clean sweep.
Columbus, Ohio, Nov. 7.���The returns at midnight indicate (he election
of Jndgo Nash, Republican, for Governor by from 30,000 to 40,000
plurality.
Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 7.���Returns to

the bast doubt of the fusion ticket
election.
Jackson, Miss., Nov. 7.���Democrats
elect their entire tiokot in this State,
headed by A. H. Long, for Governor,
by about 80,000 majority.
WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY.
Washington,Nov.7.���General Greely,
chief signal officer, says there will be
no practical demonstration of tho Marconi system of wireless telegraphy in
connection with the signal service of
the army. It is said that the instruments brought by Marconi to this
country aro nnsnited to greater dis-
fanes than twelve miles by land and
lliir'y miles by wator. Tho signal
crops which operates a system of ils
own at. a distance of twelve milts, was
unwilling to havo demonstrations made
unless there could be asaurnnoe of
greater distances than those promised,
This concluded tho negotiations,
which havo boon in progress for some
titno. It is understood Marconi will
sail tomorrow for England in connection with the u?o of tho wireless system in South Africa.
MACHINE TO  FIRE ENGINES.
A device has been invented by a resident of Indianapoalis which is expected to work a revolution in the matter
of firing engines on railroad trains, ft
will soon he given a test by the Pennsylvania compauy, with a view to using it on tbat system. The device ha*
not yet been patented, and for that
leason the name  of  tbe  inventor has
been withheld for the present from the
public. The work of the machine is
to throw coal into the fire box of an
engine and evenly distrilnte it, and is
so arranged tbat the engineer, by turning a little wheel, can place tho coal
iu the fire box at the rate of about 21
cubic feet a second. This work is now
done by the fireman with a shovel,
who throws about 20 pounds at a time.
The machine has been tried and has
been found to work perfectly, and it
is thought thnt it will solve the problem of poor tiring of enginos and do
away witb firemen entirely. Supt.
Mansfield, of tlm Pennsylvania company, has examined tbo machine, and
says that there appeal's to be nothing
in the way cf ils accomplishment of
the end [or which it is designed.
