London, Oct. ;il.- A diapatch to the
Associated Press from Ladysmith, which
waa sent at express rates, came tlniniyh
in the remarkable time of two.hours. It
shows a crisis in 0]M*rations in the present stage of the war'has been .'cached
and that the attack on Ladysmith by the
joint Boer forces has opefted.
That the heavy guns of the Boers from
which.so much was expected should be
silenced so speedily, as indicated .jn the
Associated 1'resS dispatch fiom Ladysmith, is a matter ol-great surprise, but
the subsequent advance*- of the burgher
force ou the British left flank show's the
attackers were still full of the self con
fidence and daring they have already exhibited on various occasions.
Apparently the" Boers" have concehtrat

Tho Boer War.
London, Oct. 30.—The South African
war has now been in progress nearly three
weeks and so far the British arms have
been consistently crowned with momentary fticcesses, though'at a cost which verifier'President Krngtf'a prediction that the
conflict would stagger humanity. But
though victory has fallen to Great Britain
whenever and wherever the issues were
of paramount importance, Gen r.l White"s
position is scarcely more reassuring than
at the outbreak of the war..So far he haa
only shown his ability to outwit by .strat
egy the Boers' strategy. That, in its con'
ception, meets bigh praise from tke British military critics. Now he appears to
have reached the limit of this game of
war, by which he was able to prevent the
massing of the Boer columns and mnst
either meet the enemy's combined forces
or retreat. Many people think that General White should rest content with the
successes so far achieved and fall back on
Colenso, pointing out that he appears to
be fully able to move his forces quickly
and without deterioration. It is scarcely
probable that he will follow this course,
preferring rather to hold Ladysmith,
though against much superior number*,
until reinforced. It is the feeling that the
general intends to follow the latter eour. e
that creates uneasiness, for victories over
Boers as units are not believed to indicate- that the same result can be achieved
over the Boers when massed.

Ia  It Malaria or Alaair
. IPopuUr Selene« Monthly.)
Languor, loss of appetite, indigestion
and often feVerishness are the common
symptoms of a physiological condition
termed "malaria." All these symptoms
may be and frequently are the effect of
the use of alum baking powders in food
making. There is no question about the
poisonous effect of alum upon the system.
It obstructs digestion, prostrates the
nerves, coagulates and devitalises the b'o. d
All' this has been made clear, thanks to
physicians, boards of health and food commissions. So "highly injurious td the
health of the community" does the eminent head of the University of Pennsylvania, Br. Barker, consider the alum baking powders, that he says "their sale
should be prohibited by law."
Under these circumstances it is worth
the while of every housewife to employ
the very little care that is necessary to
keep so dangerous an element from the
food of her family.
'A pure cream of tartar baking powder,
which is the only kind that should be
used, ought to cost about forty-five to
fifty cents a pound.   Therefore, if you are

Say if "Is .V nfilcs Angeles, \ve hold
possession of the railroad up to that point.
\\ s can fairly claim to possess the land
a half mile on each side of the track.
We have possession of tlie wagon road
and, let us say, a half mile on each side
from Han Fernando through Bacolor to
Santa Ana, eight miles, with four to
Guaga. We have a mad from Malolos to
lJalimiK, 11 miles northeast. Wc can
claim 11 square miles here, we have Manila, out as far as the water works, Uve
miles away. That gives, us, say 'ia miles
around the city.
Then wc have the road and a half mile
each side down 18 miles to Inius. Then
we have Calamba and some other points
on the lake that General Lawton captured
before he was otdered back. These to/.ns
are not approached by road, but by boat
across tlie ijiguna de Bay, aiid we only
control the land they stand on. Sum
ming up our total posessious, we find we
have Hi square miles.
The island of Luzdn contains 42,000
square miles.
Outside o( Luzon the insurrection seems
to be growing.
The insuigents hold ports in Mindanao,
the next largest island to Luzon ln the
Philippines, and said to be incalculably
rich in gold and silver niines, iron and
copper ones, coal and other minerals, be
sides wonderful forests of hard woods.
No Americans have dared ventuie tke.e
as yet, as General Otis has sent no troops
to the island. Englishmen and Germans
are prowling about the island, getting
all the concessions they can. It is said
several pro_>pi<.liug parties are at work.
General Otis reports conflicts between
"the robber bands'' and American sol
diers in Negros and Cebu. The Nine
teenth, the Eighteenth, the Sixth and one
batUlidn of the Twenty-third infantry are
now in these islands fighting the "robber bands," who dig trenches and occupy
towns and make night attacks after the
fashion of the insurgents in Luzon.
' A late report from Cebu is that 20,000
robbers were menacing our forces and a
collision was imminent.
The next campaign is going to be differ
ent from the last. We will get out of the
flat, open country, into the mountainous,
thickly wooded country. If we do not end
the war here, we will have to carry it
into the high, rocky mountains of Luzon.
It will be no violation of a state secn.'t
to say that the first object of the next
campaign will be to take'the rest of thc
railroad from the hands of the insurgents. The insurgents ought to be firmly
convinced by this time that we want the
Manila and Oagupan road, as we .have
fought along that line seven months.
They know we want it and they also
know we are going to get it, for they are
already tearing up the track, burning
the ties and burning the rails north of
Angeles.        *  '
The country east of the railroad, north
of Angeles, is more like it b south of Manila, except high and broken. Weat of
the railroad are high mountains that will
offer the insurgents better opportunity of
retreat and escape than they had in the
low country.
With the taking of the railroad, we w ul
have cut off the provinces of Zambe!e_,
Paggasinan, Tariac, Pampanga and Batumi from the main part of the island and
can lay claim to a good deal more country
than the precise amount of real estate on
which our army is now holding.
Another great need of the army is light
draught steamboats for use in the many
lakes'and rivers in Luzon. There is hardly a place in the world where an army
could use river steamers to greater advantage.
With almost 42,000 miles of territory
from which to draw supplied, and with
boats coming in without any opposition
from Hong Kong, Japan, and from Cen
tral and South America, and Australia,
the insurgents are probably doing well aa
far as supplies are concerned.

Reports from the CUespa-Hlno Jay
^are .Qti|te'"ehcotii__glO» There is said
' to be four feet, of good ore ln the east'
drift   j
,     Superintendent Hall of   the   Morning Glory statea that the mine la looking welLand continues.to show Its wonderful values.
Some high assays are being made
from Biacfttail ore «nd these are favorable Indications of tbe richness and
value of the property.
Tbe winze on the Flag Hill is about
30 feet deep upon, a vein which shows
three feet of ore which will average $20.
It Is a favorable showing and the work
Ib being w'ell done.
A 10-foot breast is being carried In
the drifts at the 600-foot level of the
Republic. Tbe entire face of each of
the drlfta, both north and south of the
tunnel, will assay about $200 per ton.
The hoist for the Butte k Boston is
on the ground and will be ready for
use In a few days. It will be used on
the* old shaft which will be sunk, to a
depth of several hundred feet before
any other work Is' done on the mine.
The. Jim Blaine holds its own but
does not improve in the drift, lt la the
opinion of many that a winze sunk
from this level on the Jim Blaine would
encounter the big Republic ore chute
at tbe 600"level or sooner.
Small pieces of petzlte picked from
the streaks which seam tbe Republic
ore ln the lowest levels and It assayed
tbe staggering sum of $19,946.-0, almost' $10 per pound. There ls but a
small quantity of such ore as this, but
It helps bring the averages up to very
high figures. This precious stbfr is
carefully taken down and as carefully
sacked and stored ln the mine. A few
tons of lt would make millionaires of
the stockholders Jf the balance of the
ore continues aa rich ob lt now ls.
mimic-i-d that lt will resume dividends.
One of the notable aerial I rani ways of
the Britlah Columbia mines Is to be

"It is an III Wind
That blows Nobody Good.''
I that small ache or pain or weakness Is
tht "ill wind" that directs your attention
to the necessity of purifying your blood by
taking snood's Sarsaparilla. Then your
whole body receives good, for the purified
blood goes tingling to every organ. Ii is
tht remedy for all ages and both 'sexes.
the final settlement of the affairs
of the O. K. company, Sheep Creek, the
tredltors will be paid In full, but the
shareholders will receive nothing, although their stock represents aft investment of 25 and 30 cents per share.
The-Humming Bird, north fork of
the Kettle river, has a ZOO-footincline
f abaft.- In tbe bottom the vein has become almost vertical, and the twelve
feet of ore measured Is claimed to average $40 a ton. There are 1,000 tons on
the dump and 4,000 of this class of ore
on the dump.
Already the output of Rossland camp
has passed the 5000 ton mark, and It
may soon be expected to equal 10,000
Jona per week. The Le Roi has doubled Its capacfty, and will in future ship
400 tons dally from the mine alone.
Meanwhile shipments from the dump
will be made at the rate of 200 tons
per day, in addition, so that the mine
will actually Bhip 4200 tons per week.
The War Eagle is producing 2000
tons per week, and the Centre Star can
be relied upon to furnish at least 1000
tons weekly until Its hoist Is in place,
when the output will be equal to the
War Kagle'a. These three mines—The
Le Roi, War Eagle and tbe Centre Star
—will ship 7200 tons per week, or over
1000- tons dally, and this,i.s not all, for
when the War Eagle and the Centre
Star make their contemplated Improvements, lt will bring the output of Rossland up to 10,000 tons per week.
These figures do not Include the production of the Iron Mask, I. X. L., Virginia, Columbia and Kootenay, or the
Josie and No. 1, which are preparing
to Join tbe shippers.
The increase ln the' output of the Le
Hoi Is made possible by Improvement
ln the shaft The knuckle on the 300-
foot level has been cut away and the

and their mothers miserable. Any variety of parasites that live in the human stpmach or bowels, and feed on the
substance which should properly nourish the body, are dislodged by Cascarets Candy Cathartic, and expelled.
One or two tablets usually drive them out, and persistent use is sure to do away with the unwelcome ■•intruders.-
Many children and older people suffer from worms without knowing it, and get thin and weak, although-their

The settling of the Dominion of
Canada and the filling up of ou r vaat
expense of vacaut fertile prairie lands
with desirable settler*) has been the
study and aim of our Canadian statesmen ever since Canada became a
united country, or for the last thirty
years. Starting out, ai Canada did,
with a population of 3,485,000 settled
in a country easily able to support at
least one hundred million people, with
almost unlimited resources in farm,
fortit, mine and fisheries, yet what do
we find at our last official census taker
in 18911 That our population ha*
increased to 4,633,000 or a little over
one million. Where has our natoral
inoiease in populotion gout, to) and
whero are all tbe assisted imiui_-rattta*

which undoubtedly they have, aa the
last census of our southern neighbor*
•lio-wi- "thut there an- 980,000. C-iend-
tans .moiled among their citizens,
why have tbey leftl
The solution to this problem is easily
solved.    We have   examples of it  at
hand;   when   foreign   capitalists   are
allowed, in defiance ot law, to import
"Dago" labor into tbis province   with
the avowed intent.on of driving   Canadian workiu_?tuen out  of   their   own
homes and into a foreign land tb seek
an honest* livelihood.    If our autli.r-
itii'S would   pay   more attention   to
keeping our young then   and   Wohien
at'liome and   pay   leas   attention   to
trying to fill up oar .-ountry  With the
scum of Europe, it would not b.  long
before an increase would 'lie   teen   in
our population and an increase  made
up too of a class of eitiz.-us   that   anv

J.  Roderick Robertson,  the   head

Skilled Cintidiaii miners are not
*6fth $3 50 per shift to the Silver
Lead Mines Association but foreign
■niuers are imported and promised $4.
per shift for the same work. What
possible excuse can tlie Nelson Miner
offer for this! Where will the Sandon
Mining Review find ground upon
which to write ao editorial defending
the Silver-Lead Mines Association
now! The promises of Rod Tulmie
i(ive the lie direct to all the hard time
talk of both these dou/hty cbauipims
of the mine owners. A new line of
argument must now be hunted up.
They had better com- out squarely
and honestly against the Miners'
Union aa that is what the Stiver-
Lead Mines Association has done.

Said n young anil tactlcHa husband
To his inexperienced wifo,
"Il you would but uive up leading
Siu-li a-favliiutiabie life.
Ami devote more time;_o cookitiK—
How to mia and whi n tp-bakp—
Tl.eu, pet bap, yon might make pastry
Such aa in.tther r_>eil to bake."
Ami the wife, roaepting, answered
;Vor the aaorni will, turn, you know),
"If you would bnt give up horses
And a score of clubs or ao
To devote more time t» business—
When to buy and what to stake-
Then, perhaps you mightjnake money
Sucb as father u_i.it to make."
The "lawless and blood-binty"
Miners' Union, so often herd up to
view by the Nelaon Miner and tlie
Nelson Economist, show a somewhat
different aide to the public. They are
lawabidirig and demand the protection
of the law. In appealing to the
Premier of Canada, the Attorney-
General and Minister Cotton, they
show a respect for and a knowledge of
ths law which must be surprising to
the two papers mentioned above.
Any self-respecting Briton, should
be ashamed to be known as a compatriot of such men as those who have
tried to introduce "Dago scabs'-' into
Cana.ia and who am trying to run
Britons out of a British country.
When men become so iow aa to resort
to such shabby tricks they should be
hooted odt of tbis land by self-
reipefitlng 'dtlmms,
