A COSTLY LESSON-  Clagary Herald.  Needless to say the heart of every  loyal   subject  of  the empire has been  saddened by the news received yesterday    and    today    from      Ladysmith.  That   iwo   whole   regiments,    among  the flower of the British army as well  as a battery of artillery should be cut  to pieces   and   captured     shows   that  the Boer must not be underestimated.  Nor will   the    action    of    General  White  in  acting    at all  aggressively  meet with   public   approbation.     The  The enormous   preponderance of   the  Boer   strength    and   the consummate  generalship shown by the Boer leaders as well as the explicit orders received from home, were good and sufficient - reasons     for   marking   time  pending  ihe arrival"    of  Sir Redvevs  Buller  iind  his   army    corps.    There  seems however, some justification for  the charge that the ardor of the British troops has  developed or degenerated   from   bravery   to  foolhardiness.  The  fearful  mortality which  has already taken place among our officers,  who refuse to taken even the ordinary    precautions    which    even    the  bravest of men should take, was not  at all necessary and might   have been  avoided without any loss of prestige.  The sending of 2000 men and a battery  of artillery to capture a point of vantage in the  face  of  an   overwhelmn-  ingly stronger force was magnificent,  but it was not war.   General  "White  takes the whole of tho blame of  the  terrible  loss  upon, his own shoulders,  but the  failure of  his tactics    must  undoubtedly   have a demoralizing effect upon his troops, and in the matter of generalship" he has   more than  once been outwitted by General Joubert, who has already proved himself  to be one of the greatest living strategists.  The news of the arrival of Sir  Bedvers Buller at the front will be  a. welcome relief and the arrival  without delay of sufficiently strong  reinforcements will ultimately result  in the saving of many valuable lives.  __-__M------������������---l������---W-_������  party as a whole, unhesitatingly denounce."  The "circumstances"   to  which  this  refers includes not     only bribery by  wholesale and retail, but the stealing  of ballots, the stuffing of ballot boxes,  the personation  of returning    officers  with attendant forgeries and    perjuries.      "Tho  enemies  of thc      Liberal  party," of whom Mr.Hardy speaks.who  did these things did them to assist in  the election of supporters      of     Mr.  Hardy and  Mr. Ross.      One of them  remained  in  tlie pay of the government and held two public offices after  his iniquity was discovered.     A move  prominent  enemy,  who  worked   with  the machine and wanted Mr. McNish  to  "hug"  it,  vvas  appointed      by  Sir  Wilfrid Laurier to an office.     A third  enemy,  when  criminally      prosecuted  for his crimes, was defended by crown  counsel, and was let off on bail by one  of Mr. Hardy's magistrates.     He fled  to the States', and the provincial office  which  Mr.  Hardy and  Mr.  Ross had  given him      became      vacant.      Still  another enemy is  in hiding, and the  West Huron      investigation     is held  over in tho hope of finding him.     It  is clue to tho successes of these enemies   in   carrying  bye-elections   that  the Ontario government is in existence  today.      The enemies included     men  who havo been appointed to office by  Mr. Hardy  and Mr. Ross      and  who  wero allowed  to  leave  the  work for  wliich the people paid     them     while  they were    assisting    in    these "circumstances."  When we consider bow tenderly  chose hostiles have been treated by  the Liberal party, how they have protected ministers from punishment and  how they have been rewarded with  public office and public money, we  must recognize the Christian virtues  of a party which gives such proofs of  love to its enemies.  SUZERAINTY,  THE QUEEN'S SPEECH.  The speech from the throne at the  prorogation of the British parliament was a model of simplicity. Its  directness unadorned' went to the  hearts of British subjects the world  over. Speaking through her ministers Her Majesty said:  "My Lords and Gentlemen: I am  happy to be able to release' you from  the exceptional duties which were  imposed upon you by the exigencies of  the public service. I can congratulate  vou on the brilliant qualities which  have been displayed by the brave  regiments, upon whom the task of le-  pell*ing-the..invasion_of my South Af-  rican "colonies has been laid. In  doing so I cannot but express my  profound sorrow that so many gallant officers and soldiers should have  fallen in the performance of their  dutv. Gentlemen of the House of  Commons: I acknowledge with gratitude the liberal provisions you made  to defrav the expenses of the mili-  tarv operations in South Africa. My  ' Lords and Gentlemen: I trust Divine  blessing may rest upon your efforts  and those of my gallant army to restore peace and good government to  that portion of my Empire and to  vindicate the honor of this country.-  Its Limitations and Responsibilities-  States that are Subject Thereto.  As the entire trouble between Great  Drilaiu and the Transvaal originates  with England's claim to suzerainty,  some notes on the subject of this  liitle understood word may be of  interest.  Strangely enough, scarcely a line ot  explanation as to the meaning of Uie  term suzerainty is to be found in any  of the encyclopedias and similar works  of reference. This is all the more  to be regretted as the modem interpretation ot tlie word is different frcm  that which it bore in oid times. ln  the middle ages it was employed* lo  denote a certain condition of feudalism, and to describe the control exercised over the petty aristocracy by  the great nobles and over tho latter  by their sovereign, whereas its modern  use may be said to be restricted to  the relation of semi-independent  states to the paramount power.  There are at the present moment a  number of countries which are subject  lo suzerain, oven though the submission to thc latter is not admitted in  so many -wonls: All the sovereigns  of - thc semi-independent states of  India, as well as the Sultans of  ���������Tohoi-e, -of Zanzibar and of Muscat,  and the Ameer of Afghanistan are  obliged to defer to Queen Victoria as  tlieir suzerain; and although the sovereign slates constituting thc confederation known as thc German empire  profess to ho allies rather than vassals of the Kaiser, tliere is not the  smallest doubl that Prussia occupies  toward them the relation of a suzerain.' Great Britain bas for the last  16 years claimed suzerain rights over  lhc'Transvaal republic.  Two Categories of Sub-Soi-ain States.  Countries subject to suzerainty may  be divided into two categories, namely those which are tho object of a  declared protectorate, such as, for instance, lhc Sultanate of Sulu, tho principality of Bulgaria, and the senii-  sovereign states of India; while in  the second class arc those which, although not the subject of a publicly proclaimed protectorate, arc, never  there is no doubt that if by reason of  inisgoveriiment    in  the  Transvaal    a  stato of anarchy or civil war were to  ensue, by which the lives and property of foreign residents wove destroyed,  Great Britain,  as  controlling tho relations of the Boer republic, with all  foreign nations, would be liable to tbe  latter,   financially  and   otherwise   for  thc damage done.     If American property in the Transvaal is injured, the  United States government cannot appeal to    the   Transvaal   for    redress,  since it has no official relations with  the republic.     The power to whom it  would be obliged to look in the matter  would be  Great Britain,  precisely  in  the samo manner as, when an American citizen was subjected 10 years ago  to a gross outrage at Kissington, the  rtate     department     at     Washington  sought redress, not from the regent or  government of Bavaria, but from the  Kaiser, and from the department    ot  foreign affairs at Berlin, as intrusted  with thc international relations of the  kingdom of Bavaria.  The Right ot Domestic  Intervention.  Tt is by  this  responsibility toward  foreign nations    on thc    part    of    a  paramount power for  a subject state  that the  limitations  and    extent    ot  suzerainty  can  be best  defined.      As  a  general   rule,   the  term   suzerainty  implies   absolute   autonomy and   absence  ot  control  in   the   internal  affairs of the country upon which it is  imposed.      Thc    policy ot   non-intervention, however, ceases when in thc  opinion ot  the suzerain power it becomes  necessary  to interfere for the  mu-pose _of safe-guarding its responsibilities   toward   foreign   nations.   For  it is evident that where onc state rc-  nresents another in its external relations, and tho former is consequently  responsible    to    foreign   governments  for the wrongful acts or omissions of  the latter, it must be armed with tbe  right to intervene in the internal administration of  the subordinate state  for the    purpose   ot    guarding   itself  against claims  for  indemnity on  the  part  of  foreign   governments.      That  is  why  England  is  fully justified  in  insisting that President Kruger should  inaugurate  a number of domestic reforms, in   the  Transvaal    which    are  necessary for thc protection of foreign  life   and   property   there, and   which  have  been   pressed  upon  the  British  government by Germany, France and  Italy,  which  have extensive interests  in the dominions of the South African  republic.  Of course, if the Boers were to establish that slavery of which they  were the most obstinate champions���������  it. was owing to Groat Britain's abolition , of slavery that they first  "trekked'' from Cape Colony to Natal,  and further north to their present territory���������England as the suzerain  powei- would not feel itself called upon  lo interfere. t It tolerates slavery in  Zanzibar, which is subject to its suzerainty, and likewise in all the sovereign states of British India, merely  insisting that no English officials  Bh.ill be called upon to give their support to the institution by taking any  part in the recapture of runaway  slaves nnd their return to their, masters. But when ,the government de-  \ices a number of laws which ave des*-  tined not merely to blackmail, but.  absolutely to destroy industries and  interests in which large amounts of  French", German and Italian capital  liave been embarked, thon GreatjBrit-  ain as the suzerain power has a right,  nay. is morally and legally obliged,  in "response to appeals from Germany,  France and Italy, to intervene in tbe  internal administration of the Transvaal lo the extent of insisting upon  fair and proper treatment ot all  foreigners.  -     o   "'  COMPANY.

Exchange  Amid the many other troubles which  surround it, the Liberal party has been  mutilated. Less than two years ago.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier standing beside  Premier Hardy on an Ottawa platform, declared that the Ontario ministry was the right arm of his own.  Our readers are already aware what  has happened to Sir Wilfrid's right  arm. If it has not offended Sir Wilfrid, it has certainly offended the  people of Ontario who have cut it on"  and cast it from them. The *North  Ontario scandal and the West Elgin  scandal have been followed by the  North Waterloo scandal. , On tlie  same dav that the court declared Mr.  Hardv's supporter unsealed In North  Waterloo, and reported a large number ci electors for bribery. Premier  Hardv resigned the premiership, the  po=ltion of attorney general and his  seat in the house. The new premier,  Mr. Ross, who is equally responsible  with Mr.'Hardy for Ihe mochine in  Ontario, is trying u> patch up the government and will probably attempt to  carry the six vacant seats in the usual  wav. The struggle will be a desperate" onc, but it was in the air that  the Hardy government must go, and  Mr Ross will never be able to brine  the condemned craft safe into port.  One passage, in Mr. Hardy's vale-  ,dVetory deals tvith the Ecandals. ��������� He  <says;   ��������� '������������������  , '������������������',  -"Cincumstanees of a very painful  .character have recently transpired. In  .connection with some of the bye-el-  .ections, -which , all must deplore,  -���������which no one can defend, and which  ���������J and my colleagues and the     Liberal  theless in a certain condition ot subordination with regard to some paramount powei*. Among these may oc  mentioned Bavaria. Saxony. Wurtem-  berg and the other non-Prussian  states of the German empire. Afghanistan and the Transvaal. It is  true that this contention is denied by  many of the natives of southern Germans- who are residents in the United  States, as it is by the Boers and the  Afghans. But from tbe moment that  a state is subject in the conduct of  its international relations to the supervision and veto of a foreign power,  it becomes subject to the latter's suzerainty. It is perfectly true that the  worcrsuzev*ainty-does-not-rigure-in-the-  last convention concluded between  tbe Boer government and Great Britain, away hack in 1S84, any more  than it does in the treaties binding  Afghanistan to England and the South  German States to Prussia. But the  Boer convention does expressly stipulate that the Transvaal republic  shall carry on no relations with  foreign governments save through English official channels, and that no  Treaty can be concluded by the Boer  republic without England's previous  sanction and consent. ' In fact, the  convention of 1SS4 expressly states:  "No trer-iy or engagement with any  state or nation other than thc Orange  Free State, nor any native tribes, east  or west, shall be valid until approved  bv Her Majesty or her successors."  This condition of affairs was recognized by the foreicn powers last .Tune  when they declined to admit the  Transvaal to the congress at TIip  Hague, on the ground that the Boer  republic was subject to British suzerainty. ~  The Criterion of Suzerainty.  The fact of the matter in, that from  tho very moment when a state abandons, even voluntarily or summarily,  the direction or control of its foreign  and international relations to some  other power, the latter becomes its  suzerain, no matter whether the latter  word is used or not to designate the  condtion of affairs. Now England,  according to the terms of the convenor tho foreign relations of the Trans1-  vaal, while In the same way the South  German "allies'- of Prussia have abandoned to the Kaiser and to the department of foreign affairs at Berlin  the dutv of representing them diplo-  maticall'y abroad. Thus, the Emperor William's ambassador at. thc  Court of St. James and of the Qnir-  inal are intrusted with the interests  of all the. non-Prussian sovereign  states in Germany, while if Bavaria  still retains an envoy of her own at  St. Petersburg it is due to family relations between the two reigning  houses rather than to any political  consideration.  Responsibility of Suzerain.  Now, from the moment that a paramount power afsumes the charge and  control of the international relations  of a smaller state, it virtually lieiomr-s  responsible for the conduct and policy  of the latter toward other foreign  nations. This responsibility is not  merely   moral,    but also   legal,   and  Quebec. Oct. 31.���������The departure of  lho Canadian contingent was made a  truly historic occasion.

MORE   11  REM  III  Ninety Thousand Men will be the Strength  of the British Army,  London, Oct. 2S.���������The war situation this morning presents no new  features. It is presumed in Natal  that the Boers are reconstructing  their plans and that the British aro  resisting, but telegrams from Ladysmith at express rate still occupy "IS  hours in transmission to London and  therefore it is not impossible that  something is happening. Special despatches assert that Col. Baden-  Powell, the British commander, is  aware that Pretoria has given General  Cronje orders to stay his hand, as  already there is quite enough work  to employ tho Boers in ICatal.  No Intervention Possible.  Commenting upon the petition to  President McKinley, promoted by a  New York paper, urging that the good  offices of the United Stales be offered  in settling the existing differences  between Great Britain and the Transvaal, The Standard says: "We very  much doubt whether the Washington  government will at all appreciate the  suggestion, but in any case it is for  those whom it concerns, and particularly for those whom it does not concern, to understand that the Transvaal question is one which exclusively  affects ourselves, and which vve propose  to  settle  without  assistance  or  cost which verifies President Kruger's  prediction that the contlict would  stagger humanity. But though victory  lias fallen to Great Britain whenever  and wherever the issues were paramount, the importance of General  White's position today is scarcely  more reassuring than at thc outbreak  cf the war. So fat- he has only,  shown his ability to outwit the strategy of the Boers. His strategy and  its conception meets with high praise  from the British military critics. Novv  he appears to have reached a limit  to this game by whicli he will not be  able to prevent the massing of the  Boer columns and must either meet  llio enemy's combined forces or retreat. Many people think that Gen.  White should rest content vvith the  success so far achieved and fall back  on Colenso, pointing out that he appears to be fully ablo to move' his  forces quickly. - It is scarcely probable that he will follow this course,  preferring rather to hold Ladysmith  against a much superior force, until  leinforced. It is the'feeling that the  General intends to follow the latter  course that creates uneasiness, for the  victories over the Boer units are not  believed to' indicate that the same  result will be achieved over the  Boers when massed. Compared with  the impending movement about Lady  dominate the enemy's best guns with  which they have been bombarding the  town at a range of over 6,000 yards.  The battle thus lasted four hours,  during which the artillery on both  sides had been almost incessant. A  naval brigade arrived on the scene  toward the end of the fighting .-ind  immediately brought their heavy guns  into play. Their firing was magnificent. At the fourth shot the enemy's forty pounders were knocked  out of action. The town is now  freed from the apprehension of a  bombardment. Throughout the en  gagement the Boer3 held their ground  with courage and tenacity and considering the intensity of our artillery  fire must have suffered  severely."  Just before going to press this afternoon The Herald received a special  despatch from the Union Associated  Press stating that the British forces  at Ladysmith had been overwhelmed  by the Boer forces, who outnumbered  them four to one and were armed  with longer range artillery. The  telegram states that Ladysmith was  captured and that the whole of General Stewart White's command was  either slaughtered or taken prisoners.  The slaughter on both sides is described as terrible. It was too late  when, the startling telegram was received to secure confirmatory details  and we publish the despatch fov what  it is worth, hoping���������though we fear  without much confidence���������that it may  be without foundation.  intervention of any kind. , ���������-      . _ , ,, _  Symons' Little Game. . smitU thf f*te of Kimberley and Mafe-  ' I king and the progress ot other inde  pendent operations are  almost insig-  The following despatch comes from  Ladysmith, dated Tuesday: General  Symons ordered his column to march  back on Ladysmith and under his instructions himself and all the wounded were placed in tlie hospital at  Dundee.

The rapidity of the Boer  advance and the tenacity of the endeavors of tlieir columns to concentrate on General White have proved  clearly that the Boers' plans were matured long before hostilities displaced  peaceful negotiations, and that although they may be unable to stand  before lhe brilliant charges of the  British troops, or serve their artillery  i with the skill of their opponents, .that  they are a "mobile fo,rce and operate  harmoniously under the carefully pre-  Tho following comes      from'Lady-  pared  campaign plans  of tlieir corn-  smith,  dated  Wednesday:      Our cav- ��������� manders.

Mr. Rhodes is very cheerful and gives  dinner parties daily at which luxuries  are abundant.

The British loss  was three killed and 20,  Including Two Officers  wounded. This is probably the same  fight, though dated different, as tnat  referred to in a Cape Town despatcli  cabled by a press correspondent, in  which it was said that official reports  from Kimberley on Tuesday'announced that Col. Scott Turner with 270  men had an encounter with the Boer  forces, during which a detachment of  50 men -of the Lancashire regiment  had distinguished themselves and the  armored trains did great service.

On  reaching the spot, however, they  found that they had evacuated the  position. The British continued to  advance and the movement developed  into a reconnaizzance in' force. The  enemy were posted on a range (of  hills having a frontage of about 10  miles. The attack was admirably  delivered by 'our right and the Boers  fairly driven 'out of one of, their  strongholds near Lombard Kop. It  was 'not possible, however, to push  the successes much further'as beyond  tbat point there is a long broken  ridge affording every kind ot natural  cover, i Ot this the enemy took the  fullest advantage. .

About six thousand  troops will arrive at Cape Town on  Sunday and will be available to reinforce Sir George White. Transports will arrive there early after Sunday until by the end of 'next week  twenty-eight thousand troops will have  landed in South Africa. The British  army will eventually reach tho huge  totai of eighty-nine thousand six hundred, of which sixty-nine thousand six  hundred vvill be regulars. A special  despatch has arrived from Ladysmith  to the effect- that the Boers had retaken the old position held by their  heavy artillery,������which was reported  silenced by the guns of the naval  brigade from the Powerful and had  opened  fire again.  Thc European Press.  Ot the European press the Italian  journals are the only ones that express sympathy with Great Britain  in her loss.  The Nationalist and French papers  arc jubilant and rejoice over the loss  to the British arms.  General White's Report.  London, Nov. 1.���������General Whito  telegraphs as follows from Ladysmith:  At dawn a skirmishing attack on our  position was commenced by the enemy, but made no way until 9:30  a.m., when strong reinforcements  enabled them to rush the attack with  great energy. Their firo became very  searching and two companies of the  Gloucesters in an advancing position  were ordered to fall back. The enemy then pressed to short range, the  losses on our side growing very numerous. By 3 p.m. our ammunition  vvas practically exhausted.  The Position Was Captured  and the survivors of the column fell  into the enemy's hands. The enemy  treated our wounded' with humanity.  General Joubert at once despatched  a letter offering a safe conduct to  doctors and ambulances to remove  the wounded. ' The want of success  of the column was due to the misfortune of  The Mules Stampeding,  and consequent loss of our small arm  ammunition reserve. The official list  of casualties and prisoners will be reported shortly. Thc latter aro understood to have been' sent by rail to  Pretoria. The security of Ladysmith is iri uo way affected.  London, Nov. 1.���������A despatch published by the late editions of the morning papers is to the effect that before  darkness yesterday the Boers were re-  occupying their old position held by  their heavy artillery, and which Genoral White had reported as silenced  by the guns of the naval brigade from  the Powerful, and' had opened fire  again. The despatch further says:.  The enemy is again closing iu and the  situation, is" one of- grave anxiety.

London, Nov. 1.���������Some harsh things  are said in military circles of the  British tactics which have resulted in  thc ambush of the Eighteenth Hussars at Glencoe, and the loss of two  line regiments. An interview is published with a British officer whose  name is withheld, but who is described as a well known general, with a  distinguished record during the Indian  mutiny. In the course ot the interview he passeel a severe criticism on  tho conduct of the campaign. Yesterday's disaster, said the officer, in  answer to a question, is "only another proof ot the serious blundering." Although General White is a  good regimental commander he does  not seem to excel in strategy or the  management of a big division. I regard the Glencoe affair as another example of the blundering. Proceeding  to describe the battlo at Glencoe he  observes that some of the enemy were  allowed to occupy a hill and to plant  guns on the Talana Hill. Nothing  was done to stop this until the Boers  began lo shell Glencoe on tho following morning. As for yesterday's casualty it seems inexcusable that two  regiments should have been allowed  to separate from tho main body and  especially with such a swarm of the  enemy against them. I known I am  expressing the opinion of many military officers. .  Cabinet Council Today.  London, Nov. 1.���������An urgent cabinet  council meeting has beon summoned  for today (Wednesday).

The Standard's correspondent at  .Ladysmith on Saturday sent a statement that the Boers   captured   1,500  attcm?  Boers to cut tho railway at Pieters  -was -frustrated by the British cavalry.

The force moved at  11 on Sunday evening and during the  night's firing some battery mules  stampeded with some of the guns,  which, however, I expect to recover.  Two battalions have not yet returned,  but are expected this evening. I detailed two brigade divisions of artillery and five battalions of infantry,  aided by the cavalry under General  French, to attack the position evacuated, but our force were attacked  with considerable vigor by what I be-  liovo were Genera .Toubert's troops,  who showed they had many guns. Our  troops were all in action and we rushed the enemy back several miles, but  did not succeed in reaching his  Laager. Our losses are about eighty  or a hundred, but those of the enemy  mtist   have  been  greater,  the  fire  of  ig to bi  tive.' After b"ing in action for several hours I withdrew the troops and  they 'returned unmolested to their  cantonments. The enemy are in  great numbers. Thoir guns range  further than our field guns.     I have  So says a Despatch to To-days London  Papers.  London, Oct. 31.���������Disaster has overcome the British, and General White  cables   the   British   war  office:  "Ladysmith.   Oct  31.~-Have   to   report disaster to the column   sent by  me to take a position on the hill to  guard my left flank  of troops.    These  operations took place today, and the  Royal Dublin Fusiliers, 10th mountain  battery and the Gloucestershire regiment  were  surrounded   in   the  hills,  and   after  losing  heavily  capitulated  to  the  enemy.    The  casualties    are  not yet-ascertained.   .A man of    the  Fusiliers    empolyed    as    a hospital  orderly  came  under a  flag of  truce  with a  letter  from  the survivors   of  the column, who asked for assistance  to bury the dead.   I fear there   is no  doubt of the truth of the report. ,1  formed the plan the carrying out of  which the disaster occurred and     I  alone   am   responsible.       No . blame  whatever  is  to  bo  attached to    the  troops, as the position was untenable.  The  list  of ^officers   captured   is  given and numbers 42.   The full extent of the disaster is not known.but  it  must bo appalling tc the general,  who  is  practically surrounded.    Two  of the finest British  regiments    and  a   mule battery   deducted   from     the  Ladysmith garrison weakens   it about  among the,relatives of the prisoners.  The stampeding of the mules meant  the carrying away of the .reserves of  ammunition and the troops which were  captured capitulated after firing all  the rounds of ammunition each man  carried. In the absence of news the  morning papers are reduced to speculations as to how the disaster occurred. The general opinion is that the  misuse of the cavalry was realized by  falling into the Boer trap. Apparently there was no cavalry to watch  over the safety of the missing  column. The Morning Post pointing  out how near the British were to -   -  A Still Greater Disaster  says: In the returning column the  Boers also had the Devonshire regiment practically at their mercy and  a littlo more daring would made a  bad business much worse and seeing  that a force strong enough to scoop  a couple of infantry battalions could  havo put itself practically between  General White and his camp we may  he thankful that things today are not  more serious than they are. The lesson has been a severe one. It is  humiliating to find a nation of farmers beating soldiers at their own  game, but the' sooner that proper  respect is had for Boer strategy and  tactics the better for our fortunes in  Natal. " ',  This sober note is struck by all the  morning papers today, * toegther with  an expression of determination to  carry the matter through at whatever cost.  THE   DUN0TTAR   CASTLE  Says  That  a  Country. Must  Present  a United   Front  to  All  Its  Enemies   ��������� '  -    _  London, Oct. 27.���������Lord Kosebory,  the ex-Libetal premier,"in a speech  ���������at a private,dinner of politicians on  Wednesday, referred to the war and  the heavy loss of life saying that he  had to deplore the death ot General  Symons, and before tliey sheathed  the sword there would be many more  suchi losses. Meanwhile, he added,  the country should present a united  front to the enemy. * In his opinion  the Transvaal was not a very complicated question, but-merely the effort  of a country to. put-back the "clock.  Referring to Majuba hill,' Lord Rosebery said that Mr. Gladstone's action  was determined by the' -belief that  she could afford to do things ��������� other  nations would not risk. The -Boers  regard Mr. Gladstone's magnaminity  as a proof of the weakness upon  which they could encroach.  Dwelling on the unfriendly attitude  of the foreign press and foreign pub-  lie-opinion,  Lord  Rosebery  said:  "This is no little 'War. There are  nations watching -with eagerness  every step, every stumble, and much  more, every catastrophe and disaster  that may overtake, our arms. War  waged under these circumstances,  therefore,   is  not a little war.  "I do;not know why;we should attract such illfeeling. There is one^  simple test that will" apply' to the1  British empire as compared with  other empires who watch her with  so much, I will not say malevolence,  but candid feeling. We would be  only too glad at the present moment  to strike a bargain with the rest of  theT world"-that~every'"ffontier"sliould-  remain  as  now. .    '  "Of what other empire can that be  said? Yet.we,, who are trying not to  gain, but maintain an empire, who  are the most conservative force in the  world, are the objects of concealed  dislike of governments who,' I think  are less single minded - than ourselves." n V  Lord Rosebery in an Impassioned  peroration calling upon the notion to  maintain a united front, after speaking of Great Britain as "This lonely  island in these northern seas, viewed with such jealousy, such hostility,  such jarred ambition "by thc great  empires ot the world, who count their  armies with embattled billions," concluded amid stormy applause with  Shakespeare's words:  "Naught shall mnkc us rue,  It' England to herself remain but  true"  Says Rosebery Waited Too Long  Rear Admiral Lord Charles Beres-  ford, speaking at Glasgow against  Lord Rosehery's candidacy for the  rectorship of the university, said he  admired the earl's character and brilliancy, but opposed him ns a politician.  Thc speaker charged Lord Rosebery  with following instead of leading  public'opinion and declared that he  was largely responsible for the  Transvaal's resistance and the present war because ho had remained silent until war actually began, and  the Transvaal had interpreted his silence as meaning that tlie countrv  was divided on the issue.   o   Now is tlie Time to Invest in  Tegison Real  Estate  And Here are the Reasons Why  You  Should Get in on Uie  .

the country and both declare their
intention of coining buck bete in the.
spi'inu to invent in mining property
up Fi-h creek. In September Mr. and
Mrs. Giiiilerman started to pro-pert
the r.uiiie of mountains north of here.
Mrs. Giiiitei-iiinn took some very Rue
views of the many ranees to the fii��t,
west and south. .She-ays she enjoyed llieii ascent, nf 2000 feet, and is now
prepared lo challeiii;.' anv lady 'if

about h.'ilf wav iln'ivu. then they sat.

they discover'd. much in their :imn7.i'-

They did not stop to di-pute the

Of the Mining Prospects in the Lardeau
for   the   Coming   Winter.���Not   Less
' Than 150 Men Will be Employed
Underground.���Ten Shipping Mines.
(From Onr Own Correspondent)
.Trout Lake. Oct. 31.���Taking a
general view of Tron. Lake milling1
district for the coming winter I am
led to believe that, it will be better
than any pievinus year, as lliere will
certainly be moie mines at work.
With regard to the men employed it
is hard to sny bow,, many there will be
hut I cannot see why there should be
less than 150 " men employed this
winter. The Cup and Sunshine employs 50 men. Towser, 20; Nettie L. 25;
Rob Kov, 20; Silver Bell. 20; Silver
Queen, froin 0 to 10; St. Elmo, 0 lo
10; Elhc-1. 4lo 10. This should be a
conservative number. These, with
tbe freighting, and hauling of-.ore,
menu no bad p.y roll for.a district.
It i.s not, a Rossland or Slocan, but il
should help a young camp lo become
better known and more widely, appreciated, lain certainly of opinion
t,be quality "I'tlie  ore   shipment"-   vvi.I

tlie Cup and Sunshine weie nevcl ill a.
better pnsiliiiii ''oi'shinping urt'. The
Nellie L. il oie be met with in llie
deep lunnel now in-m- the point ol
si liking ihe lead, should also be im
111p.n1 shipper. Tin; Tovv-.-wr with ils
energetic inanngeiueut'will-not lag in
the rm e. The present contract in lhe
Roll Roj- vvill show what the iron
ledge iy in depth, as also vvill the Silver
Bell. The ore seen nt Ihe surface is
rich; if it improves in quantity as
olher claims hnve done in lhe district
with depth, a good property vvill bu
the result. The Queen vvill ship, ore, as
also vvill the St. Eimo. The Beatrice,
which I bad very nearly forgotten, but
should be numbered in and to this
district, and we hope she vvill become
one of otic best shippers. The El hei
will no ilnnht also make shipments.
This property is leased to Hugh Mc-
I-'iu*r:-on and T. R. Davey. who intend,
I believe, to demonstrate what is there
and sunplie-, etc.. arc cm the mine
and work commenced.
Tht-abc ve seems lobe a vety   much
heller   showing   than    we   have seen
work   by  its shipments should  slinw
that valuable deposits- of  ore  exist  in
the   dislrict.      What  has   killed   this
district   111    the.   past,   is   the   lack   of
energy on   the  pai t of  mining   companies.    Surely companies  vvith  capital should certainlv be in a position 10
develop their properties rapidlv. by so
doing  they   would   show   the   railway
(ompanies shnl something exist in the
district that   would   vvai-i.iiu.   pushing
tin-   railway   through.      Mining   companies vvho lay down until th" railway
1- on the spot will lind it not a  paying
propo-iiion.    Tran-portatii.n facilities
may not be  in   fad   what   wc V.inuld
like to -ee,   nt.  the   satin-   time   If   vve
could show ore in quantity   laying   on
lbe mines  awaiting transput tat ion,   I
think we should see lots of energy   put
into   the    building    of   lailvvnys:   we
have lots of examples  of  this  fact  in
in my put- of B. C.       I learn that lots
