Hung-erford   Pollen   Takes  Property on Behalf of an English Syndicate.  C. liungerford Pollen has taken  a bond on  the  Estella--.mine  on  Tracy creek on behalf of an English corporation.    The details of  the deal could .not  be  ascertained.    Mr. Pollen informed a representative of Thi* Pkospectou  that a siiall  force  will  be  employed upon the property in  its  development.    The work for the  present will be confined  to  continuing the tunnel,   upon  which  work*   has   been  recently  done,  and to sinking in   the'open  cut  near the creek, whore'good  ore  has been 'uncovered.'   While a  large amount of ,work , has  been,  done on the Estella. much  more  ���will be required lo be done to determine the- value  of  tho  property.    While the mine has  been  much talked of  it  must still  be  considered as a prospecl.    There  is a*fine showing of "ore*on  the  surface,   but  it  ,must   be   more  thoroughly developed to place it  on the  list of  shipping' mines.  Our work will be devoted   to   its  thorough exploitation."  The Estella is one of the best  known properties iu the vicinity  of Fort Steele. The group consists of the following claims.  The Estella. -Rover,  Skylark*,  Cashier.   ^Vlice.   Dog  Star,   and  Mountain Daisy.     Much   of  the  work has been done on the Skylark.     A  cross  cut  tunnel   has  been driven 70I-! feet to catch the  Estella load, and it is' estimated  that in 100 feet   more  Avork   tho  ledge Avill be tapped.     A   shaft  seventy feet -has  been   sunk  on  the Skylark*,  and   a   funnel   V.)"i  foot on the  Skylark  ledge.     In  this tunnel 'there is  six  feet  of  ore, four feet of which i.s  solid.  Another tunnel .has  been   run  100 feet on tho  Estella ledge.���  this is a continuous ore chute. 1^  inches of solid eire in a  four aud  hall' foot ledge.     Tho  property  is admirable  situated   for   shipping   facilities,   being  about  (U  miles Irom   the   Kootenay   river  and   only   10   miles   from    Port  Steele*.    There is an  abundance  of excellent timber on fhe  property, and plenty of water  available.    A concentrator  could  be  buill at Tracy,   and   a   tramway  two miles in length   would  convey the ore from lhe mine to lhe  mill.  Tire Pkospi.c'Tok extends  congratulations to Mr. Pollen  upon securing what is considered by mining men as a fine property.

E., A...Elton returned on Monday from a trip  to  Moyie. ,  He  reports that place as- being  the  most lively ' in  East   Kootenay.  The big  consolidation' has  had  much to do Avith   the' prosperity  of the camp.     Mr.   Elton  says:  '���Work* on the,Moyie and Queen  of the Hills Avill commence soon  as the road  to  the  property  is  completed.

General Methuen Defeats the Whole  Boer Force.  Spt fi.il to Tiik tfiio'-iwrriii.  London. Nov. -!l. ��� 1 :."i."i --a. in.  ���Gen. Methuen has defeated  the whole Poor force al Modder  river.  London. 2!).���A special dispatch from Windsor .says lhui  General Methuen's dispatch to  the Queen after the battle of  Modeler river said lhat the battle  was the bloodiesl of the century.  The Hritish shelled the enemy  out of the trenches iind llien  charged. The re.siili was lhal,  havoc was wrought on the  Boers.  'London,���l*:!u a.   in.---Twelve  hours reded ion on   Lord   Mel linen's'  brief di-patch    has    only  served l.o  increase  anxiety  and  suspense.    All kinds of speculation is indulged in, in the absence  n! any indication as   to  whether  the Poors occupied the north  or  south haul* of the Modeler- river.  '   The best, opinion inclines to  the  ,'latter theory,   audit   is  pointed  out that the .British   must  have  been utterly  exhausted:-if  they  . followed up  the* retiring   Boers  and crush jLhcm as they crowded  over the  bridge,   their compulsory- line of relreat.  ,The   Morning  Posts   military  correspondent, who has  usually  shown    great   ability,   suggests  that the Boers  are still  oil  the  soutli side of fhe river, and that'  the bridge is in their hands.   He  points  out fhe   danger   to   lhe  small British force, which cross-  ���    ed   on  pontoons.    .The   importance attached to   this  pontoon-  ing operation i.s proved  by, the  fact that  General   Rede 'Carew,  one of the only ��� two  Prigadier-  G-enorals. was selected to superintend it.   No word has since arrived either from Lord Methuen  ��ov    from   Natal.      Speculation,  therefore, is useless. '    If  is   be-<  !' lieved that, Lord Methuen will be  - instantly reinforced   from   Cape  Town by  two   battalions' of  infantry, a detach ni en f of cavalry  . and a battery of artillery.  Col. Albrecht, who is directing the'work of the Poers'in opposing Lord Methuen. was originally im office]" in the Austrian army.  ! i11<i" :it Natal is full uf hope.  Col-  etiso will be reached in   time   to  cut Off the relreat   of  the   Poors  at Tuga river where a big battle  i.s expected.    General Hillyard's  achievement  al   Beacon   Hill   is  recognized as one of the best successes of the campaign.    General Methuen's victory at Belmont  i.s regarded a.s the iirst real   vic-  lory oi' the campaign.  The Boers  are falling 'back   <m   Warren toil.,  fifty miles from Kimberley.   The  whole .situation lias been distinctly cleared   since  fhe  arrival  of  General   Bulier, , though  doubtless the British will   have   many  difficulties  lo   overcome   before  General While is released.
