London, Feb. 14.���Tho part tuken
by tha Canadian and Australian onn-
logouts is thus docribed by a -corre
spondfiit of The Times:
"Oil the ri.iy before Christmas, Oolonel Pilcher al Belmont, got wind ol
the assemblage of a consldrable Boer
force at a point thirty miles away,
oalled Snnnyside farm, and be determined to try to take it hen,re the en
emy could get wind of bis intention.
To this end he secured every nigger
for some miles around���wbloh proved
his good sense, ns the niggers are nil
lh the pay of the Boers, no matter bow
loyal they may pretend to bo to the
British, a fact which the British
would do well to Inkc heed oi, for it
has cast them pretty dearly already.
On Ohristcas evening he started out,
taking two gni.s of the Royal Navy
artillery, a couple of Maxims, all the
tjneenslnnders and a few hundred Canadians.
"Colonel I'ilcher's force numbered
in all nbnnt (100 men. He marched
swiftly all uight and got to Snnnyside farm In good time Christmas
day. The Beers had not a ghost of
an idea thai our men were nei.r them
and were completely beaten at their
own game, the surprise party being
coaip'-.te. The enemy were found in
a strung position in -ram* rather steep
kopjes nud it wns at once evident
tbat Ihoy wero expecting strong reinforcements from surrounding farms.
Colonel Pilchei nt ouee extended his
iorce so as lo try and sinrouiid the
kopjes. Whilst this wns going on
Lieut. Aide with four (jueensland
troopers was sent to tbe far left of
what was supposed to Imi the Boer position. His orders were tn give notice
of any attempt at retreat on the purt
of the enemy. Ho did his work well.
Getting close into the kojpe he saw a
number of the. enemy .-linking oil aud
nt once challenged them. As he did
so, a dozen Boers darted out of the
kopjes and Aide opened lire on them,
which caused the Boer" to fire a volley
at him. Lieutenant Aide fell from his
horse with two bnllels in bis body.
One went through the Meshy part of
his stomach, entering his body side-
wise. The oilier went into bis thigh.
A trooper nantid Mel,ami w��s shot
thiougb tbe heart and fell dead. Both
the other trunreis were Mounded.
Trooper Rose caught a hoise end hoisted his lieutenant into the saddle and
sent him ont of danger.
"Meantime the R. N. battery, tuk-
ing advantage of the fire.opened ou the
enemy, Their guns put u great fear
into the Boers, und n general bolt set
in. The Boers fired ns they nlrand,
and if oui fellows had been formed np
in the styl:* usual to the British army
in notion we should hnve suffered
heavily, but the Queensland bushineii
hnd dropped behind cover and soon
had ooniflete possession of the kopjes.
Another trooper named Victor Jones
was sl'.ot through Ihe bruin and fourteen olbors were more or less badly
wounded. The Boers then surrender

dozen won tilled. Tiny were nil Cape

of their ammunition, -(III Murtini rifles
nud only one Mauser ride, which wns
in   the   possession   of   the    Hoer com-
mender.
"After destroying all we took, we
moved on nud had a look at some
farms nearby, ns from some of the documents found in camp it  was   certnin
I time. Tho diinndians did not lose a
| single man, neither did any nf the
j others except the Qiieeiisluiidors."
ANOTHER   S'I'OHY OF IT.
The account of lhe same engagement
sent by the correspondent of the Router Tiilcgnoii Company is in part us
follows:
"The Qiinriiiluiiili-i- did 111.- ie,.nine.
Work admirably and were able to arrive with glfj miles of tho kopj *s, here
just below a ridge occupied by our
(jneensliinder scouts which bid ns irom
any   possible   ohscitnnt   enemy,   Col,
I'ilehei oiled another  halt and   made
bis plan of battle. He determined to
give Major Derougemot command of
what was practically an Independent
colnmn consisting of his two guns
nnder Lieutenant Atkinson, the
Mounted Infantry in oharge of Lieutenants Ryan and Smith
' Along a valley  and   parallel   with
Snnnyside ran a low rocky ridge about
thirty feet high and distant   from   the
kopjes about 1,800 yards.    Major Iloro-
ngeiuout.oue of Lord Kitchener's Snn-
rian warriors,saw it was tho key of the j
position and witb soldierly Instinct hei
immediately swung nrooitd his eilinim
mnkiug a front of his lefi and brought i
it parallel to the kopje.    The ridge lay
hetween us and tbe enemy,    supposing
bim tn be holding the kopjes nt   abont
midway.
"There was no lime for hesitation.
Indeed this wns an occasion when ihe
iron iiiles and regulations which gov-
eru the art of wnr had to be Ignored
and Major Derougemout did not hesitate to ignore them. There was lhe)
possibility before linn of the enemy,
which was nearly all mounted, racing
oui Toronto men to tbe little ridge
and forcing us tn retiie farther up the
ridge. Our little body oi lOn infantry
were coming ns fast as il was fHissihle

make certain of seizing the small
ridge. Without a moment's hestitu-
tion, Major tlerouHemnnt look his
courage in both bauds, and esjorted
by the little handful of minuted infantry trotted rapidly forward with
his two guns nnd orderud "action

the laager as well us all appro:: lies to
the ridge from the laager. Tne first
sh?ll fell just in front of the white
tents of the rebel laager, tbe second
bursting in the uiiudle. and immediately we could see the rchels streaming
out iu frantic haste tn the kopjes
above. The rebels having taken up a
position nn the top of the kopjes opened n fairly heavy and accurate lire
with their gnns. The corner was a lit-
tie win in. Perceiving Ibis, Major
Derougement requested me to ride to
the Canndinns who were comiug up
abont fonr bunded yards behind and
order them to double into action. 1
galloped up and delivered tho oidir to
Major Borker. As I shouted out the
words, 'The Major wishes yon, Cap-

and vniious exclamations indicating
their satisfaction at tbe ordei 1

got their baptism of fire, behaving
throughout as though they bail boon

REWARD.
The Miner will pay $10 reward
for information that will lead to the
arrest'and conviction of any person
who steals a copy of this paper
from the premises of our subscribers.
LKT THERE 13E REASON.
A well known gentleman iu Kaslo
has written to .The Vancouver World :
" We aro having a hideous fight between capital and labor. Agitators of
tho^rankest^t^pe, from Montana, have
the ear^i'f the unfortunate laborers.
ThejJJatter l_have been persuaded by
these'men that they can oontpel the
mine owneis of the Slocan to pay fl). "tO
for night hours' work, and are urging
that none but well known men should
be employed. The mine owuoth on
the other hand, and as a compromise,
offered i'S.'ib for eight hours, and claim
tbe right to employ or discharge whom
they pli-iiM-. They can get an alum
dance of men nt the wages offered, and
it has devolved upon lhe Unions to
guard every road into the HIocd.ii to
preveut such men coming in. Upon
three successive Sunday ni_,ht��, just
beside my office here, 1 have had a
riotous scene as g_ugs of men for the
mines arrive on tbe steamboat from
JBonjer's Perry, and were intercepted
by Union men trying by persuasion,
aud partially by force, lo prevent
them taking passage ou the oars, and
giving vent to the foulest language I
ever heard when the strangers did not
yield to their demands. In such an
atmosphere our hopes of giowth and
expansion wither like (lowers in a fnr-
jiaoe.''
The miners here of the old stock
should put au end to this. They know,
nnd will admit, that $8.2G is a libera)
wage for a day of eight.hours. In no
other part of Canada and in few places
in the world is it as liberal. It is at-
much to th,'ii interest as to that cf
the owners that the mines shODld be
-worked. We all want to see our mineral wealth developed, our oonutry
prosperous, with good times prevailing everywhere in it. This would
bring more capital, whioh wonld mean
more work, and not only tbe miners
would stand to gain, bnt business men
generally. The year that has just
closed wonld bave been a prosperous
oue throughout tbe Kooteiwys if this
labor trouble bnd not nris :n ; it is ull
tbat stamis in tbe way of n prosperous
new year. There would be no trouble
today if it were nut for alien miners
aud I'oii'igu organisations. Canadians,
who are natuially iudnHtrious, peace-
loving, law-abiding, and reasonable,
have put themselves into the hands of
these men and submitted to their malevolent influence. The Butte agitators do not care if British Columbia
mines are never developed ; Canadians
and.Britons generally should ouro a
great deal. They can speedily rid
themselves of tbeso misohief-nulnng
aliens, if thuy but resolve to uccept the
liberal wage offered aud go to work.
By dniug this thuy will display more
real patriotism, and of the practical
type, tliaudf they were to enlist foi
service in tloutli-Africa. They would
be emancipating themselves anil their
1'ruvince from tlx�� evil diolntiou of
foreigner., aud restoring prosperity
to all classes of the |>eople.
The wiilor whom we hnve quoted
goes 011 to any : "Une of the lurgest
representatives of Hritish enpitnl in
the oountry said lo me a few days ago
that his advice, from home uow were
lo tbo effect that the shareholders of
liH company had laxtome rccouoiled to
the     situation.      Their     coniputriols,
whose money was in thu Traorvoil,
were nt tbe mercy of the Boers und
must now await Ihe end of the war.
The Sloriiu was in the hands of the
Miners' Union, and must await the
Issue, of the strike. Like their lirethern
whose, investments wero in Africn,
they would wait for the end of thn
war whenever thut might be.'' Let OS
hope it will he sotin. The dispute between the owneis and the men hits
wrought great mischief already; hut
when it gets known abroad that onr
mines are closing down, there is danger that the hundreds who hnve turned
towards British Onlambiu as a fluid
for Investment will conclude to leave
their enpilnl in the banks aud have
nothing to do with us. The situation altogether is very bud, with a
prospect of its getting worse. We believe the [unit   lies   with   the   minors
Willi the mines closing-all around
us, and with the industrial situation becoming more and more disturbed, the paper controlled by the
Mayor of Nelson cannot rise to a
greater height than is attained in
the following:
"Since Hugh Sutherland's newspaper in Nelson has been unable to
secure the repeal of the Eight Hour-
law, Hugh Sutherland's mine in
Boundary has been closed down us a
protest. Hugh Sutherland might
have clsoed down his paper, and
kept the mine running, but this
would be 110 punishment to the people of Kootenay, so the mines will
close and the paper will continue to
be published, and the whole district
will suffer with Hugh Sutherland.
Although this is indeed a frightful
me.-isura of revenge it is not so far
reaching as one would suppose at
first sight. Hugh Sulhe-land does
not own all the mines in Boundary.
There are others; they will not be
closed down. Then again Hugh
Sutherland may go away for a while.
He might cease lo read his Nelson
paper. Then cease to think that he
put the gold into the mountains of
Kootenay, or that Kootenay is dependent upon him. And, if he has
more gold in his mines than it will
cost to take out, he may come
back, or send some one else, and
take it out."
Our readers must not suppose
that this is badinage; it is stupidity
merely, of the kind natural to the
source oi it.

Buller has made three attempts
to reach Ladysmith, and has failed
in all of them. Roberts and Kitchener have been a month on the
ground, and have hot yet struck a
blow. In many "of the larger engagements of the campaign our
forces have suffered a reverse. Tlie
garrisons al Ladysmith and Kimberley are believed to be hard pressed.
Naturally Wf feel disappointed and
impatient. Hut there is no cause
for anxiety.. Uuller has done as
well as any one could do, with such
odds facing him. If Roberts has
not yet struck a blow, it is because
he is perfecting his preparations to
make the blow effective- when he
does strike. That is good general
ship. Whether a day, or a week,
or a month hence, there will be an
advance north, and when it begins
it will not stop until, the end comes.
The last of our reverses ' has probably not been chronicled,, but Boer
rule in the Transvaal will be destroyed forever before we are many
months older. We all have faith;
let us also have patience.

Patients of mine, on whom several

they could do all kinds of work.liftiiiK
heavy londs, etc., with safety, and
without experiencing any diaoomfnrt

in Itself.
Tlm profession wonld do well to investigate its merits before fitting their

I hnvo much pleasure in reeouimend-
iug to the attention of the profession
a Hernia supporter, the invention of
J. L. Armstrong, of this nity.
After repeated trials of tho instrument I am satisfied thnt it is tho
most efficient truss iu the Dominion.
As regards mode of application and
results, it stands alone in this oonn.rr,
embodying the principle of fixed support, not to sny piessure in the treatment of hernia, recognizing as it does
that the requisite pressure is afforded
by the wall of the abdomen. Yours
truly, C. B. CHURCH, M. D.

Viotoria. b. C.. Peb 14.���A most
importaut_announoement made in the
House this afternoon by the Premier
was tbat the (ioverninent intended
bringing down the redistribution bill
ut an oarly dote, This policy was
made known during the discussion of
Mr. Martin's want of confidence motion conoeining the redistribution.
The Premier ulso moved uu amendment in effect tbat circumstances and
administrative demands hitherto prevented action in this matter, but uow,
" Be it resolved, thut this House is of
opinion that the interests of the Province require tbat a fair nnd equitable
measure for redistribution of electoral
districts shall be ordered at an early
date during the present session."
Mr. Higgins gave notice of a motion
which in view of the present crisis is
an important one. He will move a
motion of want of confidence, in that
the Government did violate the prerogatives of the Province is its attempt
to evade the consideration of the
Kiglii-Hour law during this aeaiion,
by withholding u part ot the correspondence In thnt regard asked for by
tho House.
There was to have heen au ovening
session tonight bnt the members of
press gnllery being on strike there

days buve been heavy and leporters had
asked the Houso to uol sit tonight. The House decided to sit but

SALT OF THE SEA AND

Continued From First I'ligi',
"The mountains und the gnns went
nut and there floated in Hint roaring
of Tho Daily Mail instead and the
warm rustling vestibnle of the playhouse on u Deceuibci night. This is
the way we make win now, only loi
the instant, it was hnlf joke aud hall
homosickness. And yet, if they never
hit a man,this thin hand full of sailors
have been the saving of Ladysraitli.
*j ou don't know till yon hnve tried it,
what a worm you feel when the onemv
is plugging shell into you and you
cun't possibly plug back. Even tbongh
they spared their shell, it made all the
world of difference to know that tho
sailors could reach the big gnns if they
ever bcoume unbearable. It makes all
the difference to the Boers, too, I suspect; for as sure us Lady Ann and
Bloody Mary get on to them they shut
up in n round or two. To hnvo tbe
very men nmong you.mukes the difference hetween ruin water and brine.
The other day they sent a 1.-pounder
up to Caesar's Cnmp nmler charge of
a boy who if ho wus not commanding
big men around a big gun in u big
war, might with link be in the Iif tli
form.
" 'There's ii !I4-pounder up there,'
saitl n high offloer, who might hnve
been his grandfather.
" 'All right, sir,' suid the child so.
renely, 'we'll knock bim out.' He
hasn't knocked bitu out yet, but he is
going to next shot, which in a lelge
is tbe next best thing. But the Niiilois
havo not been homo for two years
which ih two less than the usual spell.
This is their holiday. (If course they
enjoy it, they say. almost upoligizing
for saying it. The Royal Navy is tbo
salt of tbo sea, and the sail of the
earth also.''
