London, Oct. 81.���The following is
the text of General White's dispatch to
the War Office relating to Monday's
disaster:

London, Oct. 111.���While minor revenues wore not wholly unexpected, no
Englishmen ever dreamed that anything like the staggering blow (ieueral
Joubert delivered   to  General   White's
tones yesterday, threatened the British arms in Sonth Africa, nnd apparently, the full extent of Ihe disaster is
not yet acknowledged. Enquiry al the
War Olllce seems to   indicaie   that  the
military dispatches contniu other pat.
ticulnrs, wliich it is deemed Inexpedient to publish   Immediately,   but tbo
serious nutnre of which is not disputed. The story ns already known, however, is sufficiently bud.
The loss iu effentivo men must be appalling to n general who is practically
surrounded. Two of the finest British
regiments and a mule battery deducted from the Ladysrnith garrison weakens it nbout li fifth of its total strength
and alters the whole situation very materially iu favor of Ihe Boers, who,
once again, havo shown themselves
stem Hghteis and military strategists
of superior order. It is n disaster to
the British to lose from 1,100 to 8,000
men nnd six 7-pounder screw guns,
and ns tho Boer artillery is already
stronger than imagined, the capture of
theso guns will be a groat help to the
Boers.
Apart from the immediate loss in
effectives which will seriously oripple
General White's operations, the Brit
ish defeat mnst have a depressing
effect on .be balance of the Lnrlysmith
foroos, while it may be expected to
have much weight with tho Boers
who are wavering as to which side to
support and immensely raise the morale of the Boer forces,and bring orowds
of recruits to their standard. Further
news must be awaited before it is attempted to attach blame where it belongs. General White manfully accepts
all the discredit attaching to tho disaster whioh apparently was at least
partially due to the stampeding of the
mules with the guns. From the list it
will be seen forty-two officers were
made prisoners besides a newspaper
correspondent named J. Hyde.
At the Government offices uo effort
was made to conce il the feeling of dismay prevailing. One offioial Slid to a
representative of the Associated Press:
"It is inexplicable and I am sorry ro
say its moral effect is iuostimable We
have losi heavily in many wars, and
ha c bad legimeuts almost wiped mv,
b.t to have regiments captured, and
by  Boeis. it in terrible."
The manliness of Geuernl White's
avowal tluit it was ins fault has awak-
ened ih ' - esl sympithy, An official
of ��� be V> .it Office said
. more than likely due to ihe
craze ni' our youngei officers in distinguish therusolves, obtain mention in
Ihe dispatches mid earn lie' Victoria
Gross ri;,.;.i tn the fault of ibat splendid
Indian i ���.���.���:.. general General White,
i: pite of his pitiful avowal.
The afternoi a papers nindu only brief
editorial comments ou the news from
Ladysrnith, bnt (heir head lines voiced the feeling of general dismay. The
tone of tho editorials can be summed
up by the following of the St. James
Gazette:
"It is evident that tho patriotism
nud fortitude of the nation nre to be
tested in real earliest by these operations of onrs in Natal against odds.
General White had a difficult tiiBk set
him, aud we must take the disaster
with the (logged coolness which Britons Know how to display. We shall
await the final result, without apprehension. '���'
Tho Globe calls upon the British
Empire to receive this "bittei und unpalatable dispatch'1 with the spirit of
a great nation who relies ou its invincible reserves of strength.
One announcement today was received by the British with unfeigned satisfaction, namely, the arrival of Gen-
end Bullur nt Capetown, but it is
pointed out that Buller cannot end the
war without an army corps, and some
of the troops which are lo compose it
have not even left England for South
Africa. Dispatches fiom Capetown
show that Buller's reception lliero was
most enthusiastic. He was welcomed
by General Sir Frdorick Forester
Walker, lifter which both entered n
carnage nnd drove to the Government
House escorted by mounted police
nnd mounted volunteers. They were
wildly oheered by throngs of people
lining tbe route. There were cries of
" Avenge Mnjubn" and wild cheers for
tho General, Bnllnr's face wns impassive as ho tetumed military salutep for
cheers.
London, Novomber 1.���An ominous
curtain has again descended upon
affairs in the Nutol. No dispatches
except tho official telegrams of General
Sir George Stewart White havo thus
far been permitted to mention the disaster nnd no telegram from Ladysrnith
has been ieceived in London since the
advices from the   British   commander.
This gives rise, to u belief lhat   com
munication has already been cut, in
which event, some time must elapse
before details regarding tho Britiish
l"sses wn received. If the War Office
officials have received information on
this poiut tbey have refrained from
publishing it. General White's estimate that rhe British losses ��ere about
90, is evidently quite separate from tbo
probable losses in killed and wounded
among the captnred battalions, on this
point there is the greatest suspense
among the relatives of the prisoners.
It is supposed that the stampeding of
the mules meant the carrying away of
tho reserves of ammunition, and that,
the troops captured cnpitulated alter
firing the rounds which each man oar-
ried.
In tho absence of news the morning
papers are reduced to speculation as to
how the disaster occurred. Tbe general opinion is that a misuse of the
oavalry was the real reason for the fall
into tho Boer trap. Apparently there
was no cavalry to watch over the
safety of the missing column. The
Morning Post pointing out how near tho
British were to a "still greater disaster says:
"In captnring tbe column, the Boers
had the Devonshire regiment practically at their meroy and a little more
daring would have made a bad business much worse; and seeing that a
force strong enough to scoop a couple
of infantrv battalions could hnve prac
ticnlly put itself between Sir George
White nnd his camp, we may be very
thankful that things today nre not
more serious than they are. The lesson has been a severe oue. It is humiliating to find n nation of farmers
beatiug soldiers at their own game,but
tho sooner a proper respect is had for
Boer strategy and tactics the better
for our forces in Natnl. "
This sobering note is scruck by all
this morning papers, together with an
expression of a determination to carry
the mutter through at whatever cost.
The Daily Chronicle referring editorially to the situation, says:
"In view of tho pateut feature of
the campaign nud of the terrible humiliation of the British army, we
can only vaguely hope that Sir George
While in uu hard days that lie before
him, may bi ubie to hold Ladysrnith,
Keiicat would be nn undertaking
which the imagination fails to grasp.
If this war is to be a war of vengeance, we shall have to wipe ont a
riiBustei I i re which the memory cf
Mnjubn fades  nway,   The  Empire  is
fuel to ,:i e with a repuls mp ira - -
only to thi mender of Burgo^n
the i mbatfcled farmers of our Ami rioan
Colonies. If the catastrophe oalls fur
so nothing hotter than music hail paro-
dii e ".!��� may oome to (������ i kon it as a
timely lesson,well learned for tne good
of ourselves. "
The Daily News says: "If it is
found possible to move the stores Sir
George White will probably be ordered
to withdraw upon Colens, if the order
is not given it will be because a removal of tho stores would be too
risky.''
Tho Morning Post oalls attention to
Sir George White's use of tbe word
"Capitulation," remarking that it
suspeots the word was used carelessly.
It says:
"We prefer to assume that the column fought until it was cut to pieces
and all the uinunitiou was gone.
Capitulation is a word of shuiuo
Troops in the field cannot capitulate
without disgrace, and disaster is not
necessarily dishonor."
Tho Times says: "Wo have met
with n considerable reverse, it is for
the nation to show that it can bear ill-
fortune with courage and dignity."
There is no general desire evinced on j reoeived,
the part of tho papers to criticize Sir
George White harshly pending tho arrival of further details, On the contrary, the disposition is to admire his
manly courage in assuming full responsibility.
There wns n continuous stream of
callers at the War Office till a lute
hour, everybody anxiously Inquiring
regarding yesterday's casualties, but
tho War Office declared that nothing
had been recoivod Bince Sir George
White's dispatch communicuting the
news of the capture of the Koyal Irish
Fusileers and the Gloucestershire regiments. This delay in getting further
intelligence is attributed in part to
the breaking down of the east coast
cable, but it is generally believed that
tho War Office possessed further news, of
which it is probably thought advisable
thut nothing should be publisbea as
yet. The disaster has caused a feeling ukin to consternation in Gloucester aud the north   of   Ireland
ing in ronsequence of losses sustaiuel
by these regiments iu previous engagement!. Public anxiety was increased
by a special dispatch from Ladysrnith,
published hy the late edition i f the
morning papers to the effect thnt,.before darkness yesterday the Boers re-
occupied the old position held by fieir
heavy battery which General White
had reported sileuced by the guns of
the naval brigade from the Powerful
and had opened fire again. The dispatch author says:
"The" enemy are again dosing in
and the situation is one of grave anxiety beyond doubt the Boer retirements
yesterday was a ruse to draw General
White into the hilly country and away
from the British camp."
Some severe things are said iu military circles of the British tactics which
have made possible the aiubusb of the
18th Hussars at Gleucoe and now the
loss of two flue regiments. An interview is published with a British officer whose name is withheld, but who
is described as a well known general
with a distinguished record during the
Indian mutiny. In the course of the
iuterview he passed severe criticisms
on the conduct of tbe campaign.
"Yesterday's disaster" said the officer in question, "is only another proof
of serious blundering, although Sir
George White is a good regimental
commander, he does not seem to excel
in strategj or the management of a big
division. 1 regard the Glen :oe affair
as another example of blundering. "
Proceeding to describe tbe battle at
Glencoe, he observed:
"Some of the enemy were allowed to
occupy and plant guns on Talann Hill.
Nothing was done to stop this until
tbe Boers began to shell Glencoe on tbe
following morning, as for yesterday's
casualty, it seems iuexcnseable tbat
two regiments should have been allowed to separate themselves from the
main body, especially with a considerable swarm of enemy against them. I
know I am expressing the opinibn of
many military officers."
Sir George White's honest admission
of full responsibility and the terms of
the dispatch are regarded in some circles us virtually placing his case in the
ban'". ��� of the Home authorities, and it.
is even rumored this evening that the
War Office has already decided to supersede him.
About 0,110(1 fresh troops will   arrive

Late this evening the Prince of
Wales and tho Marquis of Sulisoury,
sent their respective secrotarhs to the
War OfHco to make enquiries, but
the reply given wns that no further
news had been received. Large crowds
Btill waited, in the vicinity shortly before midnight. The tidings of the disaster will nave the effect of giving a
strong impulse to the popular movement aiming lo ruiso funds for tbe
benefit of tbe wives and children of the
men at tho front. Tbe War Office under the signatures of the Mnrquis of
Lansdowne, the Secretary of Stato for

PBBSKBVB THE FORESTS
The Victoria Timea has been scanning the columns of The Canadian
Lumberman, in which it has discovered the report of certain tests of the
strength cf Douglas fir which have
been made at MoGill University,
Montreal. It has been ascertained that
ono beam bore a pressure of 51,01)0
pounds before breaking; another 69,-
400, nnd another, 7B,900. To the average reader these tests aro valueless,
without n comparison with the endurance of other woods To him the bald
statement that a beam of Douglas fir
bore a weight of 76,900 pounds before
breaking means nothing; if a test of
tamarao, or cedar, or oak had been put
iu comparison he wonld know better
how to estimate it. However, The
Times sees iu the tests made conclusive
evidence that onr native fir is a wood
of great textile strength and is therefore of high commercial value.
After arriving at what we all believe
to be u sound conclusion, it adds:
"It behoves this Province to take the
greatest care of those magnifioent forests, and do all in its power to prevent
tho destruction of those timber reserves by flic or any other means except the legitimate nses of trade nnd
commerce." We nre afraid tho Province is not as attentive to its duty in
this respect as it ought to be. If its
laws and regulations are all tbat could
be desired, thore is evidence right at
hand to prove that they are not enforced. If any one will take the trouble to visit the head of the wood chute
on the mountain east of this City he
will find a slash of several acres in extent. The trees have all been cut
down to make wood, but the brush
everywhere lies just as it ftll from the
axe. Iu dry weather it forma a perfect tinder bed. Few things are more
certain than that some day it will
take fire, and when it does those portions of that mountain side that have
not already been denuded will stand
an excellent chance of being swept bare
of trees. This is not as it should be.
Whether it is the fault of the law or
the enforcement of the law we do net
know, but in either case there is cul
pable laxity ou the part of the authorities. In some of tbe Eastern Provinces, if not all, it is provided that
refuse of all kinds shall bo so disposed
of as not to remain a source of danger,
nnd trouble is taken to see tbat the
law is observed. The timber remaining on tha Nelson mountains is not of
tbe highest value, but if this careless
practice prevails there it is just as likely
to prevail where the forests are rich
with Douglas fir.
caused by the effect here, aud the
effect hero resulted from the circumstances of the legislation rather than
the legislation itself. It was passed in
a manner calculated lo provoke discontent. Eight bonrs might have
been made the standard day without
mining industry. Care
was not taken to do this, however.
The law was passed in a manner io
create disturbance here, and disturbance here necessarily creates apprehension in the country whence wo hope to
draw onr miuing capital. We oan well
understand that the pandering to the
demagogic and socialistic influences
of the Province would affect our reputation abroad, and we would, have
been groatly surprised if Mr. Turner
had been able to report otherwise.
It is not the eight-hour day; that, in
itself, is a little thing. It is the recklessness ovidenced in the total disregard of the rights of capital, and in
the apparent desire to put labor in
conflict witb it. It is the danger
which wisdom and experience will
always associate with the cultivation
of tho prejudices aud passions of a
class. These are tbe things t'.iat havo
created alarm here, and thut have communicated Hint alarm to capital in
England. Our Legislature made u
midnight raid on the mine owners of
tbe Province, iu the desperate dosire
to propitiate the labor vote. It invited, even compelled, conflict, and it
would be strange indeed if there wore
not alarm at its course. The Province will hnve good reason to feel glad
if the story of the harm that has been
done by our reckless legislation shall
prove no worse than has been reported
by Mr. Turner.
A customs officer at Victoria, Mar-
chant by name, has been writing letters championing tho cause of the
Boers, whereupon Tbe Colonist observes: " The very extraordinary letter frooi Mr. Merchant which appears
in last nighfs Times ought to be
brought to tbe notice of the Dotniuion
(iovernmeut. Mr. Merchant bus a
right, if he chooses, to extend his sympathy to men who havo invaded British territory, but he ought not to be
allowed to live upon the taxes paid by
the loyal people of Canada, while parading this sympathy before the public. '' That may be, but if there is to
be nny disciplining would it not be
better to begin at the top? Mr. Tarte
says that if he has to decide between
being French or British, he will prefer to bo French. When this can be
said by a Minister, the mere creatures
of the Government may be excused if
they feel encouraged to talk treason.

Mr. Corner will pjoice to know that
be has been the occasion of much merriment to several of the Government
papers. He hns been on a prolonged
visit to tho Old Country, from which
he has just returned. One of those papers likens him to Rip Van Winkle,
and says be will scarcely recognise the
old politicians. Another says his
"voin of miscellaneous and unassorted
political information about British
Columbia lies very cIobo to the surface, aud may be easily tapped by a y
prospector, in the shape of a newspaper
reporter, who comes along with his
little gimlet and bores ever so
slightly. " The humor of these remnrks
does not lie so conveniently to the surface, but that it is really present it
would hurd.'y do to question, for docs
not the hilarity of the organs testify to
it? The immediate provocation nf
this mirth is a statement made by Mr.
Turner, to the effeot that recent legislation has hurt the oredit of the Province in England, especially the Eight-
Hour law and the repudiation of certain railway grants voted by a former
Legislature.
A cultured, intelligent gentleman
who has been Premier of the Province
for a number of yoars may not be supposed to know as much of its political
attain as the ordinary newspaper editor, but many will believe that he is
quite capable of estimating the effect
of certain legislation, whether in this
country or in Englund. And from the
public estimate of his character there
will be no doubt whatever that be will
represent it precisely ns it appeals to
him. Tho mere faot of declaring
eight hours tbe regulation day for
work underground wonld have no effect
whatever on the pnblio mind in England. Mr. Turner did not suppose that
it had done so, nor did he say tbat it
would.   Tbe  effect  in  England  was

SUPREME   COURT
JUDGMENT   FOR   DEFENDANT   IN
J0HN60B VS. 3LAUEM0RE.
A fcVatch of the Oase of Kerr vs- The
Jndeiieadeat Order of Odd Fellows.
0a36s Whioh Follow.
Mr. Justice Martin is gradually
milking headway^ through the rather
formidable list of civil cases, though it
will bo impossible to linish tlietu ull
daring the present sittings 06 tlm
court. Tbe g:enter part of yesterday
morning was i.ooupied in taking the
remainder of the plaintiff's evidenoe in
Jolinseti vb. lilakeiuore. Wben his
rusu wns in, His Lordship did not coir
sider It necessary lo cull upon llie de-
felloe, ns the plaintiff's evidence wus
contradictory in many Important pur
ticiilnrs. Judgment was accordingly
given ni favor of tbe defendant,
Messrs, Taylor & Hanntngtou appeared
for Hie plaintiff mid Messrs. Mucilou-
aid oi Johnson for llie defence.
Tbo next case wns that of Kerr vs.
tho I. O. O. F. The plaintiff bad the
ooutraot for erecting tho Odd Fellows'
Bloolt on the corner of Baker and
Ko.iti'ii.iy streets, and is suing for
moneys alleged lobe due in coiiueo-
11 11 therewith, 'i'liere viw also, a
claim for damages for breach of con-
Unct, but this hns been dropped. The
plaintiff's story is that on August 1,
1808, the defendants instructed him to
discontinue building, and not to resume work until further orders, and
it wits nut until November that be
was allowed 10 go abend with the
work. This meant building tho ulnok
in the winter time, aud the plaintiff
claims that owing to tbo season the
work was much more costly than ii
would have beeu had it been performed iu Slimmer ns originally intended,
nud ho is suing for $1,(144 for the extru
expense thus entailed. He is also suing for some fl,MOO for extras, including builidiig two feet of wall all round
the building which was not mentioned
in the spsoiflcutions. These extras,
he says, were put in by the orders of
the architect, Mr. Hodgins.but the defense claims that the nrobiteot had no
authoiity to order suoh extras. Mr.
Kerr wus still 111 the box when the
court rose for tlio day. He is represented by Messrs Hauniiigton ic Tay
lor, Mr. Charles Wilson, Q. 0., and
Mr. K. S. Limine, appearing for the
Odd Fellows.
The noxt case ou the list is McDonald vs. tho 0. P. Exploration Com
pany, boing an action for damages
for injuries sutnined while working in
the defendant company's mil' ', thi
Porto Kicn. Messrs. Macdonald &
Johnson appear tcr the plainntlff am
Mr. A. H. McNeill, y. 0,, for tbo do
fenso.
Hill vs. Murray conies next. Messrs.
Macdonald & Johnson agaiu appear
for the plaintiff, and Messrs. Elliot &
Lennie for tbo defense.
Haney vs. Garrison has been adjourned to Vancouver by consent of the parties.

such annexation pronouncements: eir
Alfred adds that so far as lr. can discover, the poople north of thu Vual
Kiver accept the alleged annexation as
a act.
London, Oct. 1.���Repcrts are current
hora tbat Ueneral White may retire to
Pietermaritzburg, while the lailwuy^in
intact. There is much divergence of
opinion in military circles as to the
advisability of such a step.
Loudou. Oot. 31.���The War Office
has sent the following dispatch to
Ueneral Buller: Three extra battalions of loot and one mountain batteiy
with reserves will leave England during tho course of ten days to make
good the casualties."
London, Oct. 31. ���A special dispatch
from Lady smith says: "The Boers
suffered severely during the engage-
ment, some persons estimating their
loss at 900 to 1,000 killed and
wounded."
Capetown, Oct. 31.-The South African publishes the following   dispatch:
"Ladysrnith, Oct. 31.���A battle is
proceeding at the foot of Umbanbane,
a few miles from Ladysrnith. Several
shells have dropped into town.''
Loudon, Oct. 31.���It is learned by
the Associated Press that the War Office
has ordered a strong army corps to be
in readiness to be called out. Militia
officials havo not yet decided whether
the consummation of the plan will be
necessary, but they are determined to
have everything in readiness either for
a demonstration of Great Britain's
capabilities or for sending even i
larger force to the scene of action
Until the receipt of the news of the
Ladysrnith disaster, the latter course
was considered out of the question
But now there is no knowing what
steps will be decided upon.
London, Oct. 31.���The commander
in chief, Fie'.d Marshall Lord Wolseley,
issued an order for the mobilization by
November (i, of the reserves of Suffolk
Essex and Derbyshire regiments, who
will be added to the South African

on bin Behalf.
Montreal, Que., Oct. 31 ���Lord Minto, Governor-General of Canada, him-
s df a British soldier with a good record, spoke at the O.'ledouian Society
concert this oveniug aud, amidst a per
feet hurricane of applause, made a stirring speech iu defense of General
White who, he declared, had won his
Cross time after time, and who deserved svmpathy in his hour of sorrow.
The news from Ladysrnith was termed
a disaster, but he considered it merely
a reverse, a check which would only
stimulate them for the work that is to
come.

Berlin, Oct. 31.���Emperor William's

Dragoons, the regiment of which he is

of Germany's official neutrality. One
of the evening papers, referring to the
dispatch, points ,out its high political
significance and says it is the best ans
wer to "Paii Germanic leagues,''an-
glo-phobia and predictions of foreign
intervention in which Germany is to
play a leadiug_part."
The Bourse says: "The repeated
efforts to inveigle Germany into interfering in a question absolutely foreign
to her national interests havo palpably
the sole object of discrediting her poi
icy. Germany declines the role of acting mauager iu foreign iuterests
detrimental to her own.

citing scene at St. James Cathedral at
