Today, Tuesday,   wns   the third day
of General Cronje's Imprisonment aud
grim resistance. Rarly this morning
the Infantry engaged the enemy   iu
the bed of the river nnd drove them
bank n short disunion. The ii'ornlng
sun disclosed the Boers toiling like
ants on tho entionohmonls around
their laager. A few shells wero fired
to prevent them continuing tho work,
but most of the day was quiet. General French's artillery was henrd otf
to the oast, presumably bombarding
tbo Boor reinforcements There is
something tragic in tho stern resistance which Geueral Oronje is hopelessly offering, It is impossible not to
admire his pluck,   but all condemn the
wickeduesH of nselessslv aaoi'lfiolng tho
lives of his bravo followers.
London, Fob. 34. ���A dispatoh from
Chieveley, tinted Thursday, Feh. ..,

dawn on Tuesday we found tlmt the
Boers had vacated their icstious sooth

among the high hills midway hetween
Ladysmith and tlm river nud making

guns weie in notion, All the Biitish

Loudon, Feb. 34.���The detailed description of the desperite sortie made
from Mafeking, December 3(1, conies
from the Kueter correspondent in the
hard pressed town. It is in part us
follows: The day nfter Christmas we
made an attack upon the Boer lines.
Our seven-pounders under Major Pnn-
zera hnd been placed dining the night
ou our left front. As dawn broke, a
flash and a cloud of white smoke showed they wero In actiou. Shot nftor shot
fell rapidly around the enemy's position. As it grew lighter tho Maxims
joined in, lapping automation!])-, and
to the right the nimoretl train crept
slowly like a grent black snake over
the   plain     toward    her   destination,
The whole scene oommenosd to unfold
itself like n photo which is being de
veloped. Tho outlines grew shatpcr
and we could see tbe Union Jack tlv ���
ing proudly over the leading truck ot
the train. The rnttle of mnsketi)
broke ou onr ears and we knew thnt
our men hnd opened lire and heen
sighted by the enemy. Aftei tlmt tbe
attnoK developed with uiurvellons rapidity to the oust of the ('time Tree,
the fnrt which we were uttaeking, and
Verona and Fit_ Clarence took up
their positions preparatory to a Iiiiiii
rush.
Away to the right Hsiik Captain
Gowun, witb 70 men of the Hechiiuii-
lautl Rifles, was disposed to intercept
reinforcements or Hie enemy's retieiit.
The   armored  train  under   Captain
Williams, with machine gun und
BotohktSS, run Up us Inst ns the broken state of the line would nllow, The
whole of thu right Hank was com*
mended by llnjnr Godrey,to the left of
ns nnd right wero thn guns.    The guns
were esootted by a sqnardon and under Lord Obnrles Bentiok, the whole
commanded by Colonel Hore, were delivering a rapid lire and tlie fort replied, it hiul heen recininoitcred some
days beforehand and on the east hnd
then heen possible to a storming party.
���Inst before tin* sun urose the armored
trnin sounded licr whistle. It wns the
signal from Cnptalu Vernon that he
was ready to rush the position nnil Iho
gnns to cease tiling. As the sun rose,
we could seethe kliuikiclnd troopers
of tho Protectorate Regiment rushing
eagerly forward hardly slopping to
firo, waving their hats and oheering
each other on. It seemed scarcely
seoonds  before   they plunged into the
scrub whioii surrounded the sand bug
fort und some one exclaimed I "They
are swarming over the bags, the position is ours." Meanwhile the fight
wus continued furiously nnil we wnit-
ed for it to cense, expecting th.it tlio
enemy would snrrouder or he bayoneted to a mnn. Then there was an anxious loll. A stuif offloer snid: "Our
men uro coming buck." It wns ouly
too true. .Slowly, sullen and sulkily
the men fell hack, those that were left
nf them turning to tire in despernte
ilelinnoo now nnd again nt the enemy's
works. Wo could hear the hoarse
shouts of the officers as thoy rallied
the troops under cover of a hollow in
the ground. Then there wus a paime,
there seemed very lew iu the little
company which we could see gathering. An aide-de-camp came galloping
up from Mujor Oodley, "Captain Vernon, sir, has been repulsed," he snid,
"the position is practically impregnable to infantry and Major Godley
does not think it worth while trying
again."
For a moment the Oolonel hesitated
and we could see that tho question ns
to whether he should or should not
again attempt to carry the enemy's
position was being weighed in iiis
mind. Then ho tumid round to the
C. S. O. and said : "Let the itmbuliiiiee
go nut." Thnt was all. The hnttle
of Game Tree wus over. How daring,
how despeiut.*, bow gallant the attack .
had beeu   we were only   to learn later !    	
on when the tale of dead nud wounded came to bo told. Out of six ollicers
who had led their men so well, three
were dead, one wounded, and only
two returned unhurt, one of Iho two
with his sword hilt bent hy a bullet.
Of the SO men who formed the storming party 31 were killed.nnd four have
since died of their wounds. Twenty-
eight lie todny in the hospital���64 out
of SO. Iu Ihe evening we gathered in
tlm cemetery to bury the dead. A
long trenoh wus dug foi tbe non-commissioned ollicers nnd men and there,
because neither time not materia] permitted, they were buried without
eollins, wrapped in white calico. At
the edge of the trench stood tlm osoort.
It would hnve been unwise to lire
volleys ns we might have drawn the
return tire of the enemy, At the fnr
ond, the Knglish rector, Mr. Weeks,
read the service Over the dead, Down
the lino of the long trench, lhe white
bodies showed through tin* half light.
lu a scperuio trench nnd in coffins
we buried the officers und over the
darkening veldt the wail   of the "Lust
Post" sung sadly nnd we turned away
with the knowledge that even then
we hid not buniod nil our dead. It
was strange to think that merry
crowds were gathering in the theatres
in London, hailing   with   delight   the
Christmas psnfomines. They have
culled it boie black boxing day. We
hnd done our best to break the cordon
whioh surrounded us and raise the
seige to !������ ecu.in,:, aie with the north
aud we bod failed, mt for want of
courage, not because the uttnok was in
any way bungled, not becnuse there
had been mistakes, fur there were none,
hut because the enemy must huva beeu
informed of our intended movement
and relnforcsd their position, making
it Impregnable to anything but heavy
artillery.

expressed that the gallant yet ghustly
battle at Paardoberg Drift has not yet
ended in what is considered to be the
Inevitable, With fifty gnns bearing
upon the devoted bund withiu the ter-
riibly short range of two thousand
yards, surrender 01 utter annihilation
will lie the resnlt. unless nil reports
of the strength of the Boer reinforcements be wrong. The critics canvass
every untoward contingency thnt oan
effeot Field Marshall Koberts and see
nothing that can save Cronje from the
terrible vice io which he has heen
caught Even au unexpectedly stiong

to these experts, alter the result. Rn-

law now provides thnt polls shall be

tbat some polls are opened at 28 minutes past nine nnd held open until 38
minutes past five. Tho amendment
seeks to inseit stnndaid time, so ns to

mean a dissolution, llrilish Columbia
is rich in minerals, in llsheries, nnd
in kindergarten politicians���tbe lasl
most of all. Although it has been as
good as deleaved ou Ministerial author
ity that the Government expected to
fall on that measure, it need occasion
surprise to uo one if through mismanagement they shall escape defeat and
appeal to the country on their own
terms. Opposition in tho House is
strong in numbers, but it seems Inosp-
able nf nccomplinhing anything, It is
divided Into factions. These nre united
in their desire to defeat the (Invern
ment, but are not in harmony on nny
thing beyond thnt each faction hns a
plan of its own. One advocates the
present mongrel coalition, nnd will
listen to nothing else. Another would
divide on Federal party lines. A
third, uml fourth, hnve personal aims
in view, which association with the
01 hers would not advance, There is
1111 cohesion, im common polioy, no
community of interest. Almost each
person is lighting fnr his own hand,
fcjuoh an Opposition invites defeat in a
contest, nml will inevitably experience
if.
As it is among the lenders nt the I
Capital,so is it throughout the constit j Ron 1 EstfltB
ueiicies. Only an accident will nvcrt
a dissolution before ninny days, and
witli anything like union among nil
those Who are opposed to the (Ioverninent iheir defeat by a largo majority
would be certain. But there are us
many divisions among tbe subordinate leaders as among those nt Victoria. Only in a few const ituencies,
we imagine, are the conditions ripe
for the introduction of Federal party
lines, lu the others the people nre of
many minds. This confusion is bound
to last until it is recognised on nil
hands that smoothness nnd stability
in governmeut cannot be attained
without clear-out party lints. It is
folly,   however,    to   attempt   to   force
the application of this principle on
tho one side, unless the other is prepared to accept the challenge. In the
average constituency neither party is
no strong that it oan afford to wuste
support, The Conservative or the Liberal lenders might be ill-advised
enough to draw party lines and force
the oampaign on that issue.   To defeat
the straight party candidate,   nil   thnt
would ho   necessary   for the friends of I
the presont   Government would   be   to
hung together.    Their candidate would
get    the   full   vote of   the   opposing
party,   together    with   the large   pro- j
portion of   the   other   who   hnve been j
supporters Of the Government und who
are   not   prepared   to   accept   straight
party lines.
With a geueral election almost in
sight, it becomes necessary that those
who desire the defeat of the Government should give tlie situation their
best attention. Personnl ambitions
must not be allowed to destroy the
prospect of a victory. Tbe situation
on the Ministerial side should be care-
folly considered, nud a plau of campaign adopted thnt would command
Ihe greatest strength in opposition to
it. The grent care should be to unite
all the elements that for any reason
desire the downfall of Ihe present Government. No one element is strong
enough to accomplish   that  object hu-
