11 HAMMER THE FORTS.
Tbkio, Nov. 2.-(7 ii.m.)-Thc otli-
reports of the Port Arthur operations since Aug.- 1-,'Iorm a rceit-J
al of almost continuous fighting of
a dfespcratc nature. . The Russians |
first! struggled desperately to block'
eial
cvory Japanese   advance and    rthen
meet thc concentrated artillery   fire
of the Japanese with its kind.   Latterly since f lie Japanese have made
parallels and  traverses  and  extending'wines, the Russians have    been
constantly    making   sorties.'    Tlicy
rushed into   the     Japanese trenches
|uid     engaged    in furious struggles
witli     llie engineers ami     pioneers.
IVi'th desperate courage tlic Japanese
continued to close, in upon the fortress,    progressing    stage by stage.
The  Japanese  infantry  never  failed
to respond when asked to make,   an
assault on aloinst impossible    positions, and when the troops gained a
foothold' they generally held it   with
iiiiliiiieliing  determination.   The.    reports commencing Aug. 1, record the
assault and capture of Taku   mountain, a general advance following anil
then a general bombardment,   open;
Hig Aug.  II) anil 2ft, an attack    on
Panlung  mountain.     Kleeljrlc .   wire
entanglements    protected the  latter
|)'o|;!tions.       The Japanese artillery
(irsl shelled     tin; Panlung. fortifications fiercely, and then, on.August
I, the Japanese infantry cliiii'ged ami
were beaten back owing to the deadly fire     froni     the Russian machine
giins and  in sufficiency of the    preliminary destruction of the wire entanglements.      The   Japanese   were
also forced to abandon a fort southeast    of Keekwan ,  mountain, which
was captured alter desperate   fighting owing to tlie cnlilailing fire,   of
tlio neighboring forts.   During    tlie
morning ol  Aug.  22,  the Japanese
troops 'forming the    centre,    army,
charged    the    east fort on Panlung
mjiiiiitain and by noon bad captured
two-thirds of it.    The Russians who
continued In linlil the tort kept    re
si.1t.ing desperately, aided by the fire
Of the west fort and forced the Japanese'lo abandon the position occupied.'    The deep centre immediately
reformed, stormed and captured tlic
writ fort,    forced  the abandonment
by\ the Russians ol the cast fort .mil
mastered the entire position. On the
night ol Aug. 2.1, the Japanese centre, with the right co-operating, at:
tacked   the     heights northwest of
Wangtal and the north fort east   of'
Keekwan mountain,  hut the   troops
wore forced to abandon'the   attack
on account of the heavy losses sustained Irom machine gun fire   from
every direction.    On the morning of
Aug. 27, the Russians concentrated'
their artillery fire, attacked the entire Japanese lino and were repulsed.
From then until the first week   in
September,   the    Russians continued
to attack and   shell Panlung mountain.       They managed to seriously
damage   the   new'   Japanese works
there and to hamper the operations
of the .iapnese miners.    Hy Septem.
ber   !llh,     Japanese mines reached
within     about forty yards of    Fort.
Kuropatkin and about two hundred
yards cast of the northern forts  on^
Keekwan   mountain and some   fifty
yard* from Fort Duishiyau. On September 12,  Ihe Japanese discovered.,
that the Russians were endeavoring
in mine, Panlung mountain.
The afternoon' of Sept. 19, the Japanese    using siege and naval guns,
opened a general bombardment   and
at 0 o'clock in the evening made assaults on Forts Sulchlynn and Kuropatkin and posts on 203 metre hill.
The attack    was continued at dawn
Sept. 20, with thc result that   the
Japanese occupied Fort  Kuropatkin
in the forenoon of that day.   During .
the night a company of the Japanese
managed to reach and secure a toot-
hold in the northwest part of   the
summit of the 203 metre hill, which
tbir Japanese prepared as a base lor    '
fptthcr operations ond 1 then endeav-.   .
ored hi capture the entire positions.
The Russians,  however,  werc reinforced and dospcratc fighting followed.    Thc    Russian attacks on    the
.lapanese    miners and ttic Japanese
shelling ol the forts and fleet   continued throughout the early part of
October.

EVERYTHING HELPS.
A practical briokmaker was In
town this week for llie purpose ol
finding out whether Ladysmith had
suitable material lor thc manufacture
of brick, and if so, be stated that he
would have a brick yard In operation
here by the spring, provided he could
make advantageous terms to secure
ground lor the industry close enough
to thc city, lie had his eye not only
on the local market, though that was
no unimportant factor: but it was
flic position of llie cily for* shipping
the finished brick that specially appealed to him. At present Victoria
is shipping a great many brick to
Vancouver and other points and why
should not Ladysmith lie an even better spot for the Industry than the
capital? Wc arc much closer to the
Mainland than is Victoria; and have
f.ne facilities (or shipping both by
rail or water. At. present all the
brick used in Ladysmith is brought
from outside; whereas it, would be of
greater bcnclit to lire town to build
up a home industry instead of sending away tor what can be provided
ccononiicall) here. Of course, this
all depends on whether the proper
material for brick making is handy
and In sufficient quantities to warrant putting a brick yard in operation. One industry nflcr another is
likely to be drawn here if the people
keep alive to their opportunities. It
is these divorsilied industries we want
and each one ol them, even il small,
helps along, and in its turn creates a
want for something else. Before long
no doubt many of the wooden business places will give way to brick
structures ns the town growl up. It
is so in every progressive place and
Ladysinith will be no exception.
SIDEWALKS.
It will soon be time now to prepare for the next civic election and
an important, one il will be, ns on the
new hoard will devolve a great deal of
important work. The want o! funds
'his year has badly cramped the operations of ihe council, for they have
had to ilo all tin. pioneer work ol
getting tbe civic machinery In motion and Willi very little money to
do Hon. One thing that the present
council may lie able to accomplish de-
fore their term ends, however, is to
lay out some sort o! a general plan
for a systematic laying of sidewalks
on tlie principal business streets. We
have occasionally been asked to call
attention to some defective sidewalk,
but have not done ho from tlie reason that where such walks have been
laid by private cntcrpiizc, it is not
fair to find fault. The city, however,
badly needs properly laid sidewalks
In the business portion, especially iu
the    winter    months,   Thc present j
the site of
Cronjo's laager, which is still covered with bones and debris. After
luncheon the party inspected the
trenches, graves and positions. Lord
Roberts approved 10 contemplate the
scene of his great victory with a
merely passive interest. Paadelierg
lias been transformed since thc battle, aiid the herds ol springbok now
roaming over the spot arc eloifuent
testimony to the calm and tranquil'
jty which have settled down on the
country. A hundred yards from the
camp was a Boer farm, whorjc the
farmer was observed in making veld-
schoens. When he caught sight ol
Lord Roberts his only comment was
"llijis banje kleln" (he is very
small). The neighboring Dutch; are
friendly. The Hocrs along the road
were prepared-to receive I.Til Roberts, and were greatly disappointed
when he passi'd their homesteads
without stopping. Lord Roberts afterwards spent one night nt Poplar
Grove and another at Driclonlein.
Frdm Paadeheeg, his daughters returned to Kiniherlcy anil accompanied by thc Countess Roberts, intended
joining Lord Roberts at Blocmfon-
tcin.

OUT OF WASTE.
Little do housekeepers reali/.c the
money lhat is being made from tlie
odds and ends that arc daily being
discarded as trash and as such are
thrown out, to be carried away by
the ashman or the ragpickers who
generally precede them on their
rounds. Sonic interesting information was furnished in this line a few
days ago hy a manufacturer of card-
hoard for paper boxes in this cily.
His drill purchases old paper o! every description in large quantities,
not only here, but in Washington,
Brooklyn, New York, Trenton and
other cities
"From the various branches ol the
Salvation Army," he said "we gel
the best waste paper. The general
public is only too glad to give Its
representatives the old paper when
they call. 'I'he result Is that they
collect tons and tons ol ,it iu a month
Why, only a lew days ago 1 sent tc
the Salvation Army at Brooklyn a
check for more than $1,000, which
will bring their receipts for the
month up to $8,000. They will aver-
ago from the sale of old newspapers
$100,000 a year. It is nearly all
clear money, too, tor, unlike tlic
other dealers, they get all their palters for nothing.
"They arc entirely honest, too,
