London, Feb. 2'.. ��� (-1 u. in.).���Lord
Roberts' list of -111 killed and wnuiiiled
offloer*, Including two generals, in the
engagements np to Sunday evening,
caused anxiety, especially as in the
ollicers' list neither tho losses of the
Welsh nnil Essex regiment, nor those
of the Mounted Infantry nio included.
This is alinut the number Hint, foil nt
Oolenso where the nnn-oomniissinucd
ollloers nnd men brought the totnl loss
to sou.   it is considered  strange that
when sending his casualties Lunl Roberts gives no information us to the result ot Ihe fighting, If In* lias sent
such a report the War Ollice is withholding it
Moreover nothing is known as In
whnt look place Monday, Tuesday nnd
yesterday. Thia'absence of details
from Lnnl Roberts' dispatch, eon-
truHtod witli his rather full narratives
during the lirst part of lim   operations.
produces uneasiness among military
observers. All the comment in the
morning newspapers, both editorially
and critical, is threaded with the disturbing suggestion that despito the
liaril fighting General Cronje bus been
able to beat off hi I puisuors, hus escaped nud is being reinforced by mil
Iinili Lndysmth und Ty forceR on foot
and horseback from northern Cape I
Oolnny, us well as thu  Into   bolenguers |
of Kimberley.
As tbo correspondents with Lord j
Robortx nre sileut, tbo telegrams from
Hoer sources receive some countenance. The latter aver that General
Cronje, while the British were endeavoring to surround bim between
PuiiiMeiierg nml Koodoosberg, received
reinforcements under Dewel ui.d to-
gather the Beer commanders fought
the British to a standstill. However
this mny be, public opini in here will
not be reassured until tho War Ollice
issues explicit statements of successes,
which, nf course, would clear nwny j
the gathering doubts respecting the
uninterrupted success of Lord Roberts'
forward movement No ono doubts
his ultimate success, but there is n ,
fear ot temporary disappointment und
thut a lot of hard lighting is yet ahead
of tho British.
The latest report regarding Genernl
Ilullcv, oitctiliiteil in tho House of
Commons lust night,was that an agent
of the Do Beers Company bud received
a cablegram linm Capo Town, which
must hnvo passed the censor, to theVIT-
eot tnat General Barton's Fusileer Brigade has reached tha hills commanding fjii-lysmitli. Quito apart from
this, however, nnd from every other
rumor, the early relief ol the beleaguered garrison is thought inevitable.
Lack of News from Roberts
Causes Uneasiness in
London.
But it is Conceded Now That
Ladysmith Will Soon Be
Relieved.

Ottnwn, Peb.91.���The relief of Ladysmith and the casualties that befell
the Canadians in the battle nt Mod-

success of British arms, Sir Wilfrid
had also lo convey information thut
this goo 1 news was saddened by the

they were nil over the city. Tbe following is a copy of a oable sent to Col
ouel Otter this evening by tho Premier :
"1 desiro to convey tn you nnd your

for the honor of the Empire. The

Toronto, Fob. 21.���There ia much
grief hero over the disanter to tbe
Canadians nt Modder River. The iu-
i I'mniatiim received so far is meager.
The news Hist came from Frederick

j unities His dispatch camo after The
Globe went to pross, but that paper
Inter got out two war specials, giving
; the revised list in" killed aud wounded
j and missing, other pupeis came out
i with extra editions later, printing
The Globe's exclusive dinpntch.
Z I'.-irtii ulurs of the tight and the manner in which sn many Canadians wore
killed are lackiug so far. Some seem
to think after they forded the Modder.
they fell into a trap or were ambushed by the Boers. Ford's letter of
Monday nays Methuou's division is
Btiiil to have arrived at Kimborlev
without encountering any opposition
and it was expected the through tiain
to the Diamond City would leave Cape
Town last night, so it is evident the
country betweeu Modder River and
Kimberley is quite clear of Boers.
It looks as if tbe Canadians and
others, while following Methueu and
keepiug open its lines of communication to the southwest,met with opposition which resulted in their losses.
Some of the names given have led to a
little confuflion. One Jackson, ol Toronto, enlisted with tho company from
London, Out., and his people are not
sure whether he is the man whose
name i- givi'ti us killed. The names
iu the cusunlties list wero cabled without initials in most onses, making
identification somewhat uncertain.
The only Mnson In B Company is
Lieutenant J. C. Mason. 10th R. G.
Two Scotts appear in the list of 0
Oompany, W. T., 5th Rattulion, and
C. H. Scott, in the 27th Bnttalion.
There Is uo Rixou mentioned in thu
oflicinl list of A Oompany. There is
no Smiles in the official list of A Compnny. The names of Tbreeves and
Torentette are not iu theollioial list.
T'bero iB no Maundrill iu the ollininl
list of A Company, the name may possible be Mnndeville. Tbere iB no such
name as Warn iu tbe Cnnudian contingent. There are several Wards, but
not in D Compnny. Lieuteuant Mason,
of the London Company, wounded, ia
n son of Colonel Mason,Toronto, Tenth
Royal Greundiers. Stewart, wounded,
belongs to the Quean's Own Rifles, ot
Toronto.
Tnere was a minor in tho city tbat
when news of the wounding of Lien-
t.'limit Mnson was teceived, his father,
Colonel Mnson, who is manager of the
Home Savings and Loan Co., dropped
doud of heart disease. There i< no
truth in the report. The nunie in tho
London list of wounded, Torentette,
should be D..1 Marintee, 21st Battalion
with the London O'ompany. It is believed the nnino of Smiles, given
mining the wounded of Manitoba
men,.is Smiles V. Finch, of the ."ith R.

selects redistribution us the main cry
of his oampaign, It mny he gnoil judgment; but uside from the fact that the
people do not appeal to regard a measure of the kind as nf such vital interest thnt all other questions are to be
obscured by it, it is to be remembered
that much will depend on the character of the measure proposed.
It requires very strong argument to
justify a redistribution on the eve of a
census. We require to know how population is distributed before nn equit-
able arrangement of the constituencies
enn be mude. That knowledge can be
obtained only through a census!. But it
is pretended that the existing airauge-
ment is so unfair that to wait for .-.
census would be out of the question.
It is unfair, because some of the present constituencies nre whnt may lie
termed pocket boroughs. They have
small populations, and have been
maintained for the lensou that former
Governments conld alwnys rely upon
their support. To correct this iniquity
the Semlin Government, the Government of Reform nnil Righteousness,
propose to abolish them and muke a
I few pocket boroughs of their owu.
The full text of the nieBsure has not
[come to hand, but it is announced that
in new constituency is to be formed,
comprised ohlefly of the l.iirdeao country. The present i nptilutinn of Lar-
dcau will hardly come up to the standard in numbers, but that does not seem
to ninttor to Ministers in desperate
search of a majority. Mr, Semlin evidently fails to give due weight to the
probability thut the people will refuse
to shut their eyes to tho generally
shiftless policy of the Government, in
their cestney over such a redistribution
as this. Tho one great patent fact
which nothing will obscure is that
they ine a ������et of inoapables, nnd Hint
the sooner the Province is rid of them
the better,

In declining it to   be the   policy   of
his   Government     to     repudiate   Mr.
Civil Service hnve not been disturbed,   Gicenway's   pledges  of  railway   bon
us a reason why there should be no
Liberal dismissals any where, it fuils to
oompiebend what is meant by the
s|Kiils system Our con tern penny has a
|ioor memory   if   it   cannot recall that
in lsmi and 189. the Dominion Govern-
ment dismissed large numbers of Conservative officials, They did this on
the plea that they were "offensive partisans" ; Ihat is. that they took active
part in the tlion recent eloctious.
There was much disputing over this,
and much angry feeling, the charge
being freely made that the Govern-
ment were falling back on tho pernicious spoils system. There were probably unjust dismissals among the number, but there is no doubt at all that
the greater portion of those who had
Ihoir heads taken oil deserved their
late. A Civil Servant who e.iriies his
partisanship into his offloe with him,
and who umkes violent display of it on
.-very occasion, deserves dismissal.
and when dismissed it is quite incor
Hat to attribute it to the spoils system. The spoils system does not recognise any distinction between partisans
ami nonpartisans, lint culls for the decapitation ol ull Offlolals in order tnal
the victors may be rewarded.
There aro u great many Conservatives Btill in otllce. That is because
ihey are public servants who devote
lliemselvos to the faithful and honest
discharge of their duties, and who
lake no further part in political contests thun to cast a quiol vote, There
could in* 1111 excuse for dismissing these
men, and consequently   they   were uot
disturbed.    Mr.   Macdmialil   may   Hud
good reason for dismissing certain Liberal offlolals in Manitoba, and it  will,
be regarded as a peculiar argument to i
say that he does wrong in dismissing ;
ihem  when   tbe   Federal Government J
uses, the new Premier of Manitoba
must nssuro himself that that is not
venturing on disputable ground. Tho
Toronto Monetary Times is a disinterested observer,nud it is inclined to the
belief Ihat tbe public faith is involved. It will be letter to vote tbe
bonuses than to attach to the Province
the stigma of repudiation. This is a
case in which deliberate consideration
should go before judgment

' Tlie Association then proceeded to
the eleotion of officers, It was deoided
timi the National Women's Connoil
appoint five of tho directors at their

The new directors will meet at tho
school I"""1 ai K P*m- March I, and
I'lwl their olHcers.
Mis. McCnllooh, the seoie.'ary, then
lead her report for the year. A synopsis of the report is Riven  herewith :
"The Arst meeting to organise the
Association wns held in November,
1898. Uii November _r>, -fsv; had heen
rai.wil. On November ail tho riirectois
were appointed and it was decided to
incorporate ihe Association, The library was opened for subscribers only,
lmt the reading anil recreation looms
nave luen opeu to nny one. Tho
amounts of money received from
sources outside the llbiary fund nre
*iss -.'a from the Women's Connoil,
���.'.'Oil (torn the City, flfil) from tho Library Ball, nnd 1107. UB from the Carnival uvea on the luth of February,
The Annotation has now in tho hnnk
1108.70, There nie now 258 subsoribers
ni ���*- a year, The magazines i.nd pei-
ioiliciils nre all paid until December
HHHI. The library has been a success
and hns done good work, but bus been
handioanped for lack of funds. The
expenses for the coining yonr will
amount to full) (1,000, and for that
reason the seeretary hopes thnt the City
will make a more generous appropriation this year. "
After the reading ot the report tho
Assooiation rendered a vote of thanks
to Mrs. McCnllooh for her nblo work
daring the year.
Mr. Akehurst then moved thnt the
directors wait upon tlm City Council
ami suggest that the City take over tho
HiiiiiaB.iiioiit of the library as it is the
nniiiiiaioiis opinion of the A&scointion
that the library can be bettor inaim���i"l
hy thi City. Another reason Riven is
that ns the library is a free institution
it is eminently proper that tho admin-
UJirutioii of its affairs should come uu-
dt'i' the management of tho City.

A  RICH  MINE
The   Joker   In    Camp   Mansfield
Showing up splendidly with
Development.
Large, Uodles ol High Grade Ore Have
Boon Uncovered -Progress ol
the  Oamp.
As tho work proceeds in Camp Mans
field it becomes more in evidence thut
il is u region very rich in mineral. Of
the Joker, the principal property yet,
on account of the length of time it bus
been worked, verv little has been mnde
public  as  the   management always
keeps everything to itself. But a period iu Ihn development has now been
readied Unit shows the property to be
so decidedly rich that sumo details concerning it will be read with interest.
The development work ut present con-
sists ol 11 shaft over ISO feet deep nnd
800 feet of drifts. The drills run both
ways from the shuft und every foot hus
been in decidedly rich ore. By cross-
cutting, the vein bus been shown to be
110 feet wide aud the wulls nre very
well defined. The poystreak hns never
been less than IH inches wide and lias
now reached the very satisfactory dimensions of extending across practically the whole face of the tunnel. In
crosscntting the ledge another paj ���
streBk of very rich ore two feet wide,
wns encountered about fifteen feet
from tbe main paystreak.
Two samples taken at random from
the ore they are now working in were
assayed last week. One sample of
quartz and iron pyrites rnn 11(11 in
gold und nine ounces in silver nnd the
other, guleun, whioh is chiefly being
found now, gnvo $82 in gold and Dilfi
ounces silver. Those familiar with
the mine were considerably surprised
at these assays as no effort whatever
was made to get picked samples, it being rather thought thnt the two tnken
were nol fairly indicative of the rich
ness of tho mine. There is certainly
nn ahundauce of ore thnt looks much
mole promising. If such is the case,
the Joker will be a remarkable mine
for tte large bodes of the ore aud the
entire freedom from faults, pockets, 01
slides thut the work has shown the
property to possess, the splendid tunnel sites thnt enn bo secured, the unrivalled water power right nt bund
und the natural grade of the sooth fork
of Knlso Greok aa a means of transportation of supplies are all the essentials to the makings of a great dividend payer. At present M. J. J. Fleu-
tot, who is in charge of the company's
operations, is on a trip to Chicago and
San Francisco to purchase machinery
with which to treat the ore. Of oonrse
the nature of the mnchinery will be
decided upon after thorough tests of
tho ore,which nre now proceeding, bnt
it is certain thnt a slump mill will
be erected early in the spring. A cyanide plant mny also be added, hut the
stamp mill will received the first attention, and its erection and maintenance will mean considerable to Kaslo, a town that has already rece'ved
with many expressions of gratification
the good news from the Joker, which
it regards as having proved the south
fork, a region that has long been idle
and which should be n grent support
to it.
The scheme of development will be
the running of a long tunnel from the
Bertha claim; one upon which Mr.
Mansfield is now rnnning a tunnel to
tap the Joker vein. The Joker people
will probbly stmt near the tunnel now
undor way nnd run nboiit twice the
distance to tup Ihe lend well on iis
own property, while Mr. Miiuslield is
innning straight to it. Work in the
shnlt has been discontinued on account
of tho mnchinery not being able to go
to a much greater depth thnn IRII feel
and the force of Hi men nre iu the
drifts.
A upraise of 120 feet for air will be
started at once aud the number of mnn
will be increased. This upraise will
be ull the wny through ore. The long
tunnel through lhe Hertha will tup tlm
lend at a depth of between 600 and
700 feet.
It was forty ��� six degree* bi'low
zero in Oamp Mansfield lust Friday
night, but climatic  conditions  make
iiii difference to the work which is pro-
greasing  veiy satisfactorily   on   the
Luudi gioup, which, in Mr. Mansfield s
al,-, in ,, abroad, ia under Ihe supervision of Mr. W. K. Boie. The lengths
of the uinn,-I - lust week were, Mur
gnerite 105 feet, Twin Lukes 115, Tony
1110, and Bertha Hill. Three shifts a
day an* being worked in tho Bertha
while   two  shifts   are   at work on the
other*,   The  Marguerite  and Bertha
unnels urn being   run to (np Ihe Joker
vein at a depth which hns  been shown
by surface Indications and a number
of open cuts to cross both claims. Ou
the Tony a rich strike has been iiin.il.-,
ns nlready loported in The Miner.
Eight Inches of ore showed native nil
ver and contained a gold value of *"-:in
to tho ton. At a depth of 110 feet the
Tony tunnel orossed a vein two feel
wide which ooutnined .HO ore. Mr.
Hole will shortly ruu a drift to see
what this vein amounts to.    Tho most
interesting work ia tlmt on the Twin
Lakes us the hnuging wall was just
struck nt 1-15 feet nml Mr. Boie expect
ml every shot to show grent. promise.
Surfnoe showings, prospecting work
and survey have given every reason to
believe that a rich chute of ore will be
struck uny day now uud the miners
nre redoubling Iheir ell'orts to get ut
it. On the Crescent thero is a very
good anrfaoe showing, a high grnde
gold ledge, 12 feet wide, running noross
it, and it is Mr, Boie's intention to
stmt u tunnel there as soon as the
weather conditions allow. Messrs.
Taylor and Hiinniiigton nre now proceeding to get a Crown grant for the
l.u'nili group of claims, Hi   in number.
The otiii'i Camp Mansfield  property
lining actively worked this winter, the
Pnotolns grou], bus recently shown
surprising signs of richness. In tbe
short distanoe Of twenty feet the ledge
hns widened out from IS inches to five
feet. The will Is nre very well defined.
The tunnel is being run nn the vein
nnd is milking ore all the time. The
paystreak is widening out in a very
promising manner end the chances are
good that further great imrtovemeut
will be shown in a short time. The
Paotolus Is a local company which is
to be congratulated on getting into
this rich oamp before foreign capital
secured all the good .things that were
going.      	
THIS    MORNING'S   DISPATCHES.
Owing to the heavy special service
Tho Miuer hus received this morning
dealing with the loss of tho Onnndians
at Modder River, it is found impos-
sihe to publish n groat many war dispatches received during the dny nnd
night. As the Canadian loss is nearest
the hearts of the readers, chief prominence is given to it. However, in
the matter crowded out there is nothing
Stirling, the dispatches dealing principally with conjectures ns to what the
next moves will be. The position nu
the whole seems satisfactory, aud the
general tenor of all the dispatches is
given in those published.
The list of casualties to the Canadians hnB been compiled as carefully as
possible by Tho Miner, with the nid
of The Toronto Globe's dispatch and
nn official list of those who went to
the front. However there were Bevoral
names in the dispatoh that do not appear in ihe loster of tho first contingent but The Miner believes it presents
a very nearly accurate list, an end
thnt neither pnins nor expense wns
spared iu accomplishing,
