SUFFERINGS OF BESIEGED.
London, Nov. 10— S|iecial despatches from Port Arthur and Che
Foo printed in this morning's news,
papers give terrible descriptions of
the condition ol the besieged. The
Daily Mail's correspondent before
Port Arthur describes the Rdssians
killed and those taken prisoners as
greatly emaciated and asserts that
the men subsist entirely on a daily
ration of less than two pounds of
black bread. The Daily Telegraph's
I'he Fon correspondent declares that
(he task of burying the (lollies of tbo
I slain at Port Arthur is now beyond
control and lhat thc corpses are
simply pitched into thc new dug ex-
| cavations near Golden Hilt amlfwhero
| there is only a few feet ol water.
.The condition of the helpless women
is heart-rending, several groups ol
them going to market have been
blown to pieces.
Bennet Burleigh also sends to the
Daily Telegram a harrowing picture
ol tbe condition of the wounded in
Port Arthur, of whom great numbers
are lying unattended within the inner forts. In the name of common
humanity be thinks some effort
should be made in behalf of these
helpless sufferers. He suggest* tljat
as soon as possible they should be
taken upon neutral vessels flying the
Red Cross and transrerred to hospitals al Chee Foo and Shanghai.

A    Boundary wedding which was
celebrated In Greenwood on the 25th
seems lo have Ir^en fol.
lowed by a stale of affairs not usual
on (his side of the line.
On die dale in question P. C.
Johnson, said to lie 00 years of age,
married awidow, of Mrs. Rchanlson,
presumably no longer young, as" she
now has a son past 21, and tllc day
after tlie wedding the lady informed
her husband of a day, that she could
not live with him niter October of
Hint year, mini morc than fulfilled her
threat by taking light leave o! him
on the llltfi of August. Evidently
her forsaking of the bridegroom was
not iu anger, for in November she
returned to comfort him. But in
the following February, that is of
1001, thc fickle lady wanted another
vacation, and took it. This time it
lusted nearly two years, to be followed by a reunion lor the ibort
space of six mouths. At the end of
that period she again left, evidently
against her husband's desire, for he
charges Hint her son, 0. B. Richardson, assisted her flight.
Now tlie son is suing his stepfather for (7(111 and something liver, made
up of board bill, doctor's bill and
nurse's bill. The elderly husband declines to pay and stales his case. He
has lieen deserted without cause repeatedly, hie stepson connived nl nml
assisted In the desertion, and he denies liability.
The most Interesting feature of tho
case is the lady's statement ol her
position. She* explained that she
wouhl pot live in a country where
women have fewer privileges thpn
men. She has not specified what par-
licular .privileges she demands, nor
has she ventured In name a country
where there Is grenter cqunlity of

New Y'ork, Nov. 10.—A Dondon
despatch to the Times quotes the
London Times' Russian correspondent as saying that the disinclination to join the colors for MoJichuria
recently noticeable in South Russia,
is becoming general throughout the
country. Competent opinion puts the

Russia's overwhelming strength on

KAMLOOPS NEW MILL.
Work has been stinted In the building of the most modern milling plant
by tlie Kainioops Lumber Co., Ltd.,
to replace the mill that was destroyed by lire on thc evening ol September flth. The new. mill is to . lie
double ihe capacity ot the old one
and when in operation a Jay-roll approximately $10,<III0 per month will
lie distributed iu town. For some
lime past .negotiations have been
qniecly carried on between the city
and. George Mcl'orniick, general manager of the company with a view to
having the mill rebuilt at Kamloops.
An agreement wns finally reached
whereby the city secured (or the
Kamloops Lumber Co., Lid. the foreshore rights owned by the Shunvap
Milling Co., whicli gives Mr. Mc-
Corinickjs company ample facilities
for the better handling anil preserving of logs.as they conic down the
river.
The new mill, equipped, as it is to
be, with all labor-saving appliances,
,vill, on completion, some time next
\pril, represent an expenditure ol
about (Tla.oon. Running at lull evpa-
cily, the plant will be capable of
turning out 20,000,000 feet per year,
and should (he company's business
warrant running two shifts, fully 200
men will be on the payroll outside
of the large number that must necessarily be required in thfc lumber
camps.
SOMEWHAT
BEFOGGED
By Land and |Sea ft fs Difficult
to   Travel
Aright
For the past two mornings the fog
has been declared the thickest that
Ladysmith Jias evor experienced and
shipping has been somewhat delayed
owing to this fact. Thc utmost precautions have been taken in the railway yard where the shunting of cars
nnd moving of coal trains has to be
done in the morning hours in an atmosphere where the drivers cannot
see a length ahead. Out on thc road,
too, driving is by no means a pleasant occupation where a man cannot
see the wag of his horse's ears nor
see the approach of another vehicle.
An end-on collision between two milk
wagons is one of the accidents reported. One of the ranchers was
coming to town and a rival was en
route in the opposite direction when
crash, came the two one-horse wagons together with a lorce almost
hard enough to turn the contents ol
each wagon into a milk shake. However, the damage was nominal, although the air became if anything a
shade thicker at thjat particular spot.

When tbe report ol the actual number ol residents in Lailysmith is
