THE  MOST  COMPLETE  AND  LARGEST  STOCK  OF  fcsi������-s_������i_5������a������<^^  RUBBER  GOODS  Ever Exhibited  in Revelstoke...  Just Opened Up.  We have been extremely  fortunate in securing the  sole agency for Revelstoke  for positively the best brand  of Rubber Goons on the  market to-day, namely the  "Maltese Cross Brand"  STUB PROOF.  They are certainly tho best  wearing and most comfortable class of Rubber G uns  ever put on. sale in Revelstoke. And we venture to  say that our btock in every  line is the most comple and  largest in this city.  A GOLD=CQPPER CAMP  On Mineral Mt. at the Head of  Laforme  In A Satisfactory Store.  By handling first class Stoves and Ranges and only those thnt  were adapted to the fuel conditions of this ilcinity, we built  up the largest stove business in Revelstoke. That done we  were important people in the eyes of manufacturers. Being  the largest, dealers we are permitted to select the best lines  and we are given the exclusive sale for Revelstoke.

The Lnforine cieek camp is?situated  neiir the head of Laforme creek, 20  miles from Revelstoke as the crow  flies and nliniit 20 miles by frail.  It lies four miles southeast of the  Rosebery mine on Carnes creek, and  although only u young ciunp, is yet a  very promising one. There has already been 'considerable work done on  several pioperties and all have shown  up well.  The   Noble Three "property' which,  by the way. was the first discovered in  this camp," is owned I believe  by Itevelstoke. people, has a wonderful  showing for   lhe   y mount  of   work   done.  They Imve several tons of good clean  ore on the dump at present.    This is a  galena proposition, although it carries  considerable   gold    and   copper  also.  One mile to the southeast  of this  are  two claims known as the Ly Ule property,   which   has   also   a remarkable  surtace showing of galena, currying a  good per centage of gold and  copper.  On this  property  there is  a  crosscut,  tunnel: run in for a few feet and  the  face of t.he tunnel is almost   solid ore.  There are about ten tons of good clean  ore on the dump.     This  property  lies  in a good position for tunnel  working  and there is no scarcity of good  water  nnd timber at^haiid.  Next   come.,   the   A,duir   group  adjoining this   to   the e ist   with  eight  claim"!.   The Adair gioup is owned hy  Ed. Ad ni i' and some eastern  men,  tlie  syndicate   being   registered     as    tlie.  Adair Piospeeting, Mining and Development   Companv.     The    properties  consist   of   the   Flora   Bell,   Morning  Star.   Grand view.    Eureka,    Eastern  Sstar, Iron King, Miihl. May unil Almu  mineial   claims.     They   comprise altogether over  four  hundred  acres  ot  land which Z's   all   well  watered and  t.iinlii'ied   for  mining  purposes.    The  Adair group is situated at tlie he-cd of  l_.iifoi uie (i eek. on iiie south  slope  of  Mineral Mountain, about, seven   mile!  fiom  . Steamboat     landing,     on    tin  Columbia   '.iver.     The  country   roi-k  heie   is   chiefly   schist    vvith     dioriu  good showing on the Uncle Joe  claim.  Mr. AV. E. MeLnuihliu, of Revelstoke.  h'is an excellent showing on l.he Edna  Alice.   This   is a   fissure   vein   cross ���������  cutting the formation direct and is 11  feet in width with six  inches  of solid  ore at the foot wall.     Although  only  a small amount of work hus been dour  on this property it is 'showing up well.  Running along the hanging wal! there  is two feet of quartz, well mineralized,  giving good results in gold and copper.  This property lies in  <_.  splendid  posi-  lion for tiinnel  working,   and   depth  can be obtained at llie rale uf foot to  foot.    Tliere are several  other claims  to the east with just as good a  surface  showing as those already  mentioned.  Mayor .McCarty.   of Revelsloke.  and  imftncr, own a very promising claim,  llie   Big   Bend   Oliief.    Aiul   the   La-  'forme 'fraction.    Lorua    Doone    and  'Kiiiiiiouiit     have     excellent,    surface  showings.    Mr.   McGallniii,   of Revelstoke,  has   done   some Work   on  his  property adjoining the Kinmotint and  this also is turning out satisfactorily.  After making an examination  of  this  camp I believe it has a  great future,  and .with proper   development these  properties will become large producers  of-gold, silver,  lead and   copper  ores.  I can look forward with  Confidence to  no   distant,  day   when   the southern  slope of   Mineral 'Mountain   vvill   be.  dotted with   mining ' cabins, and  the  hum from the mining machinery  vvill  be heard through the valley of Lafoi-tne  creek as it hoists  the precious  metal  t.o the sutfiice from  ilo hidden   vaults  in the heart of t.he. mountain.

In  the Cape Colony   there   are 1,000.000  natives and 400,000 whites.-   In Basilto-  land, which lies on the  borders of the  Orange Free Stale,  there are 250,000  natives and barely 000 whites.      Natal  contains within its  borders  no '.fewer  than 530,000 natives, almost  nil  Zulus  (Natal is reckoned as  including Zulu-  land pioper),   and 50.000  white  folks.  The Orange  Free  State   presents the  nearest approach to equality   between  Uie two races.     It has'u population of  200.000 n-itives and 80.000 whites.    The  total white population of the whole of  South Africa is apoioxiinately 820.000,  of which -432.000   mav   he  classed  as  Dutch and 3SS.O0O English in sympathy  if not by birth.

The veins have a  northwesterly course and a dip of about 45  degrees,to the norlht .ist.  The development already done consists of stripping the veins in several  places vvith three open cuts aci oss the  veins~iituHn-di*iving-ii crosscut-tunnel  200 feet to cut the iron vein, which,  however, has not been reached at this  time oE'wvitinur. though at, the present  rale nf work the vein vvill be struck  within a fevv days. The veins are  traceable for the whole, distance uctoss  the property and ulso for four miles  to tiie southeast they have been traced  aiid staked. They have also been  traced by myself and others to the  northeast to the already well known  Rosebery 'mine, vvbich is on, the same  vein, and westerly to lhe Standaid  group in the Standard basin, tvvo miles  further west.  I would like to just  s.-iy  heie  that I  had  the   pleasure   of   calling on   Mr  Brewster,   manager  of the  Rosebery  mine, in his ollice in Itevelstoke a few  days ago.    He   showed   me   a   lot of  samples of copper ore from  Ihe Rose-  liery which I consider as good as any  I have seen.in B. C.     But  lo resume.  On the Adair group the work is  being  chiefly dune on the  Emeka claim  on  which the company have had  a  force  of   men   working   since   last    March  under the   management,   of   Mr.  Kd.  Adair, und have done a good season's  work   in building camps for    winter  quarters and tunneling and  prospecting   their   property   in   general.     In  driving the tunnel they have already  cut through ore four different times.  When in 20 feet they ..went? through  10 teet of'well mineralized vein matter:  n fevv jTi'i't farther on  they "cut  four  inches'of solid galena and still further  mi 10 inches of beautiful  ore running  well in gold and copper.      Later on  a  fevv days ago they cut 10 inches of iron  oro   showing   a   large   percentage   of  copper.     In   conversation   with   Mr.  Ada ir he informed ine tliat it. is  the  intention   of   the   company   to   thoroughly develop their property.   The  method he .intends lo pursue is tunnelling and upraising. The present tunnel  will he continued on for _i0O feet vv hei e  it, vvill cut another  vein.   This   is  on  the surface a   beautiful   quartz  vein  running well in  gold on   the surface  four feet wide.   Next spring, all going  well, said he, "we will start down  the  hill helow   all   the   veins   and   run a  crosscut-tunnel so. as to   cut all  the  veins and   get,  a  depth   of  over 950  feet  when   completed."    There is an  abundance of water.' power here  for  raining purposes  dispute between the C. P. R. and the  contvai'lors, Poupcire & McVeigh. The  contractors were building this road by  "force" work; tliat is they were to  receive a percentage on the actual  cost of construction, and '.he dispute  is s.iid to be about this cost. At the  time, of the clcsedown, over 150 men  were working and it-had been stated  that steel would he laid before the  snow fell. Now it looks as though  the expect anl Trout Lake and Lardeau  people will lie disappointed for another  six months or so.  A Promising Copper Strike.

The constitution of the alleged Boer  republic forbids any Catholic or Jew  to sharre in the law making ot the  country. Sixty thousand ignorant  Boers aro governing 200,000 more intelligent white people who are mainly  British and American. The 60,000  Boers are governed by Paul Kruger  and his council ot seven other Dutchmen as autocratically as the Czar  governs Russia. The word "Republic" as applied to the Transvaal is a  hollow mockery. The so-called Uit-  landers have changed the Transvaal  from a bankrupt . institution to a  prosperous state. They have made  Kruger a multi-millionaire. Thoy  have introduced manufacturers, opened rich gold mines, fostered commerce  and built up niagniflcient towns. In  return they havo been tyrannized, unjustly taxed and forbidden any share  in the government ot the country and  the making of its laws. It is high  timo this disgrace to civilization was  wiped. Kruger has chosen his own  medicine and it will be rammed down  his throat so effectually that in the  near future the Transvaal will be a  British colony and its peoplo as free  as tho people ot Canada.  HORRIBLE  TRAGEDY  Details    of  thc    Murder  Lacombe  Case     at  FULL   CONFESSION    BY   THE   WIFE  MR.  MIL'-S AND THE TARIFF.  Hon. David Mills visited Regina the  other day and vvas presented with an  address by the Junior Liberal Association which according to the Winnipeg Tribune represents the machine,  while the original Liberal Association  which refused to be manipulated by  the local wirepullers was conspicuous  by iis silence. The address described  the tariff as "still unsatisfactory" and  in its report of Mr. Mills' speech in  reply ,the Free Press credited him  with having expressed his dissatisfaction with the  exsiting  tariff.  In consequence of the alarm caused  by this report in the camp of the machine, where the tariff is supposed to  be "a dead issue," the matter was  hi ought to Mr. Mills notice on his  arrival at Winnipeg in order to give  him an opportunity to deny tbe truth  of the statement attributed to him.  While denying that he had expressed  dissatisfaction with the tariff in his  Regina speech, Mr. Mills was compelled to make the following "statement to the Free Press reporter who  interviewed him:  "I do not pretend to say the tana  is-perfect, but I do say there is no difference between myself and my colleagues on the subject. I dare say  that the tariff may be capable of some  amendments, but when such amendments are made tliere must be chosen  a fitting occasion. Frequent changes  would be a greater evil than the continuance of some defect. We have got  to consider things as they are. It is  not the business of the government  bv heroic reforms, to cut up established  industries  by their  roots."  It is to. be hoped that Mr. Mills  knows whereof he speaks when he  savs that there is no difference between himself and his colleagues on  the subject of the tariff. His position  is perfectly clear and is highly commendable, although one would rather  * expect to hear the above statement  from the lips of Sir Charles Tupper,  than from a member of a government whose platform was based upon  "Free .Trade as They Have It in England." Mr. Mills' explanation will  do more to make trouble for the  machine than the statement originally  attributed to him.  MISPLACED   CONFIDENCE  Wo have, in common with tbo vest  of the community iu the North West,  often wondered why it was that tlie  no objection to the expenditure of  public money by the minister of the  interior in the importation of large  numbers of Galicians and Doukhobors  into the North West despite of the  protests sent in from all the affected  districts, regardless of politics. ��������� It  was hard to believe that any minister  of the crown who had taken the  trouble to "size up" these people for  himself and who did not havo his opinions' made for him by The Globe or  The Free Press, could favor the expenditure of the people's 'money in  preferring this class of immigration  '   as ag&inst all others.  The, fact however is that the mem-  "b"ers"~"of _th"e_cab"In"et~must^hav"e"~b'een"  altogther deceived in this matter of  immigration.- No other suggestion  can justify the following ' nonsense  which The Free Press attributes to  Hon. David Mills at Regina. Speaking  on the question of Doukhobor and  Galician immigrants, Mr. Mills is  made to Eay:  "They go to strengthen the country  for defensive purposes and to give it  security under all circumstances  against tbe possible danger of foreign  invasion. They       contribute       to  strengthen British prestige throughout  the world, and to give additional influence to the government of this  country in the defence ot our rights."  Hear. O ye white people of the  North West, what blessings are being  showered upon yet What need have  ye any more of Mounted Rifles when  ye have a noble army of more or less  uniformed Galicians to defend you and  secure you against the possible danger  of foreign invasion. How comforting  It will be when a hostile fleet sails up  the Saskatchewan to know that the  forts at Edmonton and elsewhere are  garrisoned by regiments of Doukhobor artillery who nevertheless left  t, their own country owing to their absolute refusal to carry arms. Perhaps, the difficulty will be surmounted  by the establishment of a Doukhobor  Ladies Aid Society whose proficiency  In harness at the plough will enable  the members to haul the guns to the  front while their spirit wrestling husbands need only to press the button.  Ia the minister of justice aware that  even today wheri there is no immediate "rigk" ot foreign invasion, the  presence of these warriors is so much  felt that the old time farmers are getting up and out so powerful is the influence of their newly acquired neighbours? And what could be more  beautiful than Mr. Mills' eloquent utterance that the Galicians and Douk-  iobors "contribute to strengthen British prestige throughout the worldt.and  give additional influence to the gov-,  ernment of this country ln defence of  our rights."  If Mr. Mills really did say what The  Free Press says he did, and if he  know3 no moro about the Galicians  and Doukhobors as we have them in  the North West, it would have been  better for his own reputation, though  not by any means as amusing, if he  had refrained from discussing the  subject at all, but had confined hlm-  THE MOLSONS DANK.  The Molsons Bank, which was established in 1S55, vvith one office In  Montreal, has grown with the growth  of the Dominion, extending its usefulness to business mon in Quebec,  Ontario, Manitoba, the North West  Territories and British Columbia, its  branches now numbering 3S. Forty-  four years' successful operation of a  bank is a good test of its stability,  and that test the Molsons Bank has  stood with credit to itself. The -14th  annual report, which is published  elsewhere in this issue, shows that  the net earnings for the. past year,  after making full provision for bad  and doubtful debts, were $2S9.SSS.  which is equal to very nearly 1-1%  per cent of the paid up capital stock.  These exceed the net profits of the  preceding year by $30,697.  Tho deposits and current discounts  show notable increases, the increase  in the former being 5L.15,SS5, and  that in the latter $2,0*10,570, llio deposits being $12,5-18.412. and the current discounts $13,753,4!!. The circulation of the bank's bills is shown  at $1,935,545, being an increase for the  vear of $87,350.  The capital stock of thc bank is to  be increased to $500,000, and wilh thc  extending of its usefulness and the  increasing prosperity in the business  of the whole country, it is safe to  predict that next year's statement  will be even more satisfactory than  the present one.

"Sixty Doukhobors were ready to tako up thc. work  if the miners went oul." "Ten members of the North West Mounted  Police here have been, sinco the first  of the week, under orders for Leth-  bridse service."  -  The trial of the Indian from Providence, near Slave Lake, on the charge  of murder, vvas concluded Wednesday  afternoon, the prisoner being found  guilty. Three witnesses were examined,-and the facts bearing on the  case are as follows: The murderer  had been attempting to influence the  ���������people-ofche-tribe-and-becdme^power--  ful by preaching to them. He evidently had become crazed with the  idea "and claimed that _ he was  justified in shooting the wife of a  fellow Indian who was staying in his  tepee. The evidence clearly went to  show that the crime had been committed by the accused although the  motive,; was not made clear.  The immigration department at Ottawa has issued a very neat collection  of views accompanied by suitable  letterpress illustrative or the mauy  and varied attractions offered by lhe  country west of Winnipeg. The illustrations are" all from photographs  and represent tbe various stages of  pioneering in farming sections of th.  country onward till thc big barns^and  threshing engines become a familiar  feature. Ranching scenes, mining anil  magnificent mountain scenery are all  given, while by way of variety? a  couple of Winnipeg's public buildings  and some big elevators-are given a  place. The get-up-, of this production is excellent and the description  of the country, though r.ecessarilj  concise, is-well and truthfully clone.  A stirring incident occurred at*the  Albambra theatre, London, recently.  While the, orchestra was. playing  "Soldiers of the Queen" the audience  was startled by the tones of a. rich  baritone voice singing the song, and  for a moment no one seemed to know-  where it waa coming from. ';.. It wa"  presently discovered to be coming  from a private box, which'.- had beer.  taken bv a. party of thc New South  Wales Lancers. There were cries of  "como to the front!" and forthwith  there -appeared a stalwart: trooper in  full uniform, and sombrero in hand.  The conductor turned towards him  beating time, and the song went on  whilo the audience listened in suppressed excitement. At tho close of  the first verse there war. a. tremendoua  outburst of cheering, the audience  rising en masse, and waving bats'and  handkerchiefs with the wildest enthusiasm. The trooper then wished  to retire, but. thc people demanded  that he should go on, and so he did.  They joined in the chorus this time,  and again, when it came to an end.  they cheered frantically. In fact, it  was onli) by drowning the cheers in  the strains of "Rule Britannia," that  the orchestra could restore something like order in thc house.1  From the Weekly  Press  What  is  alleged  to  be  one  of  the  most horrible  and cold blooded murders of the present     century is now  engaging the  attention  of  the  police  authorities at-Lacombe, and the wife  of tho murdered man     has     already  been arrested and committed for trial  on the most serious charge known to  the law.     A warrant has been issued  for her brother Thomas Alva Quigley,  who is  supposed  to be at present in  British Columbia. The Quigley family  cr.nie  to  Alberta"    from      Wisconsin  about four years   ago  and  settled  in  tho  vicinity  of Lacombe,  and  Hagle,  the murdered man and hiswife, whose  maiden  namo was Quigley     came in  1S9S, and settled near Gull Lako.     A  few weeks aftei- his arrival Hagle met  his   death.       The  story   told   by  the  prosecution is to the effect that while  driving from Lacombe to Pouoka the  unfortunate man was set upon     and  literally beaten to death by the aid of  a heavy hummer.      Tho scene of  the  tragedy is about   14 miles north      of  Lacombe in a lonely spot on tho old  Indian reserve.      It is alleged that on  lhe night following     the murder the  body of the murdered man was dragged from the brush where it had been  hidden and  buried  within a  few  feet  of Wolf Creek, whero ou Tuesday last  it was  discovered  oniy a  foot below  llio surface by Sergeant Evans, N. W.  M. P., who has been  working on  the  case for some time.     The story of the  murder is said to have come to light  in a peculiar way.      Last     week, tlio  sergeant in charge at Red Deer received a telegram from Mrs. Haglo asking  him  to arrest a  man  named  Ledgor-  vvood,     a resident of     Ponoka, on a  charge of having committed a criminal assault on her.      Lcdgerwood who  is  07   years  oid   was  accordingly  arrested "and  taken      to Red Deer     to  answer the charge in the police court  which was held      on October     16th.  Mrs H.agle     accompanied      by      her  mother also went to Red Deer where  an information was laid by the former  against   Ledgerwood.       At   the . same  moment that she had laid the information and in consequence of the facts  supplied by Ledgerwood     Mrs. Haglo  was arrested on the charge of having  murdered her husband.  The charge against Ledgerwood  was dismissed anil it is-alleged that  a full confession was made by the accused woman, and in consequence  of information supplied by her Dr.  Sharpe, the coroner, was notified and  in company with Sergeant Evans and  the accused on Tuesday went to the  place where she said the body of her  husband bad been buried and after an  hour's search unearthed lhe body  whicli was iu an advanced stage of  decomposition. 'I'he sight was a  ���������jr.iesome one. The moustache and  hair was still intact, as well as thc  clothes worn by the unfortunate man  at tho time of his death. Two  fractures were found in the skull, one  at tho base and another at the right  side. The remains were identified by  Mrs. Hagle as those of her husband.  She appeared to be perfectly composed and showed no trace of nervousness, and on the way back to Lacombe  Cell into a sound sleep.  An inquest was held in tbe Mason's  Hall, Lacombe, on Wednesday by Dr.  Donovan, coroner.when the jury found  a-verdict of wilful murder against  Thomas Alva Quigley and that Mary  12. Quigley was an accessory lo tind  after the fact. Tbe following jury-  was empaunelled:  C. T. Daykin. foreman, G. Thompson, C. M. Dolmage, T. N. Burdick, ,1.  Jameson, C. Morris. Mr. Greene appeared on behalf of the accused, Mrs.  Haglo. Sixty people attended the inquest, "10 ladies among them. Thc  coroner and jury viewed the skull of  the murdered man after being duly  sworn. J. F. McCue was the first witness, who lives near the sceno of the  tragedy. He testified that about June  1S9S he saw the accused, her husband  and brother, T. A. Quigley, drive iu  a wagon across Wolf Creek in tho  forenoon * and saw tbe rig return  about 3 p.m. the same day containing  only Mrs. Hagle and her brother.  Woif creek vvas 12 miles north of Lacombe. He knew the deceased by  sigbt and described him as a man of  dark complexion. Cross examined by  Mr. Greer.e he stated there was a  child in the rig. Seregant Evans, the  next witness, stated that in September  1SSS he read a letter from Mr .Surrls  from Mr. Hagle's brother inquiring his  whereabouts.     He. went.. north  Quigley, her brother, in the following  manner: She, Mrs. Hagle, and Alva  Quigley went in a buggy across Wolf  creek. Tho two men began scrapping  when her brother threw the reins over  Mr. Hagle's neck. He choked him.  His face became us black as a stove.  Her brother then got a hammer from  the wagon and finished him off, which  sho was glad to see, as Mr. Hagle had  threatened them both. Cross-examined by Greene Mr. Ledgerwood said  he had visited Mrs. Hagle on throe  occasions and was on intimate terms  with her and .'had stayed all night on  two occasions. He had a good time  at her house and she had always used  him well. Ostensibly his visit was  for the purposeof buying cattle and  pigs, but he never bought any stock.  ���������Mrs. Hagle asked me to marry her,  but I never olfered marriage to her.  1 am 63 years old and still hale and  hearty. I would not have told what  I know if she had not pressed the  charge of rape against me. The  causo of the quarrel was jealousy  between her husband and brother. She  confessed to me whilst sitting on my  lap. My third visit I told Mrs. Hagle  I would have nothing to do with looking up her husband's body. 1 belong  to the Methodist church and have  never been in trouble of this nature  before.    .  Mr.s Hagle, the accused, being  sworn, said: In June 1S9S Mr. Hagle  said he would like to look at some  land on the Indian reserve. My  brother aud myself and two children  drove with him over Wolf creek and  had dinner there and returned about 3  pm.. On tho way back from the reserve Mr. Hagle complained that the  country was ouly lit for an Indian or  Nigger to live in and found fault with  my brother, Alva Quigley, crossing the  creek. My husband put his hands  round my brother's neck and choked  him. He first turned red, then  darker. My brother made a spring at  him and 1 took the lines, my two  children resting against my lap. Could  not help cither party as my hands  wero full. Bolh men fell out of the  wagon. Then my brother gave him  two heavy blows and struck him with  a hammer. He then dragged the  body in. the creek. We then went  home. The same night my brother  look a spade and returned on horseback and buried the body. My motive  for nol confessing before was we wore  afraid of the law ot the people. We  thought we would botli be hanged. My  husband was not jealous of me.  This closed the hearing. The jury  under charge of tho sergeant retired  at 10:30 p.m. to consider their verdict  and at 12 p.m. returned into court  when Foreman Daykin gave, their  verdict as follows:  "We find that Thomas Alva Quigley  did deliberately, wilfully and with  malice aforethought kill and murder  Nelson Hagle about tho 20th of June,  189S, near Ponoka, and that Mary E.  Hagle is an accessory to and after the  fact.  On Thursday morning the case was  heard at 11 a.m. beforo Justices  Fletcher and Talbot. Much the same  evidence was given and at the close  the accused was committed to take her  trial at the assizes to be held at Red  Deer on the 30th of October. In the  meantime, the police are actively  hunting tho-whereabouts of T. A.

CANADIAN REVENUE  shots all night it was not until the  shells boomed over tbe town into the  camp that their presence was discovered. Then shells came fast, the  Hill positively being swarming with  Boers until the British artillery got to  work and with magnificient energy the  batteries from the camp took up their  position in the South Town. After a  quarter of an hour's magnificent firing  they silenced the Boers. The ISth  Hussars and the Leicester regiment  got at the flank of the enemy. The  slaughter was then terrible. General  Simons, who led the charge, was mortally wounded. The British loss was  250 and the Boer SOO. A special  messenger has brought intelligence of  the defence of Mafeking.  London, Oct. 23.���������The war office this  afternoon published the following dispatch to the secretary of state for  war, - Lord Lansdowne, from the general commanding in Natal,. Sir George  White, regarding the engagement yesterday at Elandslaagt, between Glencoe and Ladysmith, when the British  under General French routed the  Transvaal forces under General Jan  Kock, second in command in the  Transvaal army, who vvas himself  wounded and captured and has sinco  died:  "I was present in person from 3:40  p.m. till S:30 p.m., but did not assume , , .,,. __ . ., ,_.__,__.__,.  the direction of the fight, which was ?ul!lr bacilli.

The  real action did not begin until 3:30  p.m. At that hour the Boers held a  position of very exceptional strenerth  consisting of a rocky-hill about a mile  and a halt south east of Elandslaagt.  At 3:30 our guns took a position on  the ridge, where we were 100 yards  from the Boers whose' guns at onco  opened fire. The fire generally was  well directed, but somewhat high, and  contrary to previous.experiences their  shells burst well. . The Imperial Light  Horse moved towards, the left of the  enemy's" position'and tvvo squadrons of  the Fifth Lancers towards the right.  During the artillery duel mounted  Boers pushed-out* from the right and  engaged the Imperial Light Horse. In  a few minutes the enemy's guns ceased firing and our artillery was turned  on the mounted Boers who had engaged the Imperial Light Horse and  who at once fell back. After artillery  preparations, our infantry advanced to  the attack supported by puns in the  second position. The Devonshires  held the enemy in front, while the  Manchester regiment and the Gordon  Highlanders turned the left flank.  The Boer guns although often temporarily silenced Invariably opened  lire on the slightest* opportunity and  were served with great courage.  After severe flehting the infantry car-  lied the position. . This was accomplished at 6:30 p.m, the enemy standing their ground with courage and  tenacity. The Lancers and a squadron  of the Fifth Dragoon Guards charged  thrice through the retreating Boers in  the dark doing considerable execution  and captured the Boer cainD with  tents, wagons, horses and also two  gUTis-.ThP-T-oer losses were-very con-,  siderable.

Com-  ALASKAN BOUNDARY  Temporary Settlement of the Question.  Washington, Oct. 21���������Mr. Tower, the  British charge d'affaires here, called  it the state department today and  handed to Secretary Hay a note foi  mally accepting for his government  the proposition for a temporary adjustment of the Alaskan boundary on  the lines proposed by Sec. Hay. . 1:,  die note of yesterday with that act tlu-  iong expected modus Vivendi relative  to the vexed boundary question went  Into effect. This result has been  brought about through tho direct negotiations of Secretary Hav and Mr.  Tower after several failures in the  past through the commissioners and  ..he ambassadors. The divisional  iiuc on the west pass by which the  Dalton trail is reached is placed 22*4  miles above Pyramid Harbor, which  is regarded under the treaty as tide  water mark, so that the Canadian:-:  will not be allowed to reach any point  ou the Lynn canal. Moreover, there  is no permission given for a free port  or even for a free transfer acros*;  American territory for Canadian goods  except miners' belongings. These  matters may llgttre later on when il  comes to a permanent boundary line,  but they were not touched upon in  this modus vivendi. This follows  the precedent established by Secretary  Ewarts in 1S78 in agreeing upon tht  temporary boundary on the Stikine  river in Alaska by the exchange of  notes. The line on the Chilkat river  is 22>/i statute miles from the head of  tho Chilkat inlet on the Lynn canal  and on the Klepne river 12 statute  miles further inland and the whole  valley of the Porcupine creek is included within the American line. Or;  the White and Chilkoot passes the  Inie is fixed at the Summit our  watershed being points which have for  some time in the past been observed,  by tho custom authorities of the two  countries.

Kincardine, Oct. 24.���������Sir Wilfrid  Laurier and Mr. Fielding had a great  reception here on Saturday afternoon.  A meeting was held in a ware room,  the largest place" in town, accommodating 3,000 people. John. Tolmie,  member for the riding, and elected ab  a patron, pointed out that the present  government has much more of a  friend in the Patrons than were the  Conservatives. Premier Laurier referred to the many lines of agreement between the Liberals and the  Patrons and then touched on their  differences. He u thought Patrons  were       wrong in condemning  railway subsidies. There were occasions when it was, the .duty of the  "���������government-t_rgiv~e~railwajr~aid: As  to the Senate and the demand for its  abolition Sir Wilfrid said he knew  many people regarded it as the fifth  wheel to a coach, but pointed out that  the leaders of 30 years ago, some of  whom, such as Mackenzie, had .been  opposed to the idea of a second  chamber, but had conceded it to  the minor provinces which would not  have the same power and influence  as Ontario, as a guarantee of hasty  legislation he urged his fellow countrymen, to be slow in attacking an  arch of- confederation. As to the  reforming of the Senate and making  it responsible to the will - of the  people then he was with them and  intended accomplishing it, but would  not lay a violent hand on the institution which had been created by the  fathers of confederation.   o   MEETING, OF THE CABINET  Lieut. Col. W. D. Otter, of Toronto,  who has been selected to assume the  command of the Canadian Brigade to  leave the end of the month for service in South Africa, is an officer who  is credited among military men with  exceptional acquirements and ability  which fit him for the important post.  His term of service dates back 38  years. When he joined thc Queen's  Own Rifles of Toronto he was then  but IS years of age, and in the years  tbat have succeeded, devoted his  study to military subjects and training and was favored with, an experience second to no officer in the Canadian military serivce. He is of  English descent, but was born near  Clinton, Ont., and educated at Godericii Grammar School and Upper Canada College.  He became connected with the military force in Toronto in 1861 and was  promoted lieutenant in the Queen's  Own Rifles in 1864, serving with that  lank in the Niagar campaign during  the winter of 1864-65 in the 2nd Admin Batt. In August, 1865, ho became  .tdjutant of the Queen's Own and  served at the time of the Fenian raid  ot 1S66, being one of those who took  part in tbe actions at Limeridge and  Hidgeway. He became major in '69,  and was promoted lieutenant colonel  in 1874. In 1S73 he went to England  ns 2nd in command ot the Wimbledon team and in the year following  succeeded to the command of tho  Queen's Own Rifles, commanding that  regiment during the Pilgrimage Riots  in Toronto in 1S75, and at thc time  of the G. T. R. riots at Belleville in  1877. In 1SS3 he was chosen commandant of the Wimbledon team, and  vvas sent to Aldershot to acquire information in connection with thc conducting ot military schools. He was  appointed commandant ot the  Toronto       School   .     of Infantry  in 1883, and organized "C"  company of the Royal Regiment of  Canadian Infantry.  During the North West rebellion of  1SS5 he was in command of the centre  or Battleford column and with his  men accomplished a forced march  from Saskatchewan Landing across  the prairie, a distance of 190 miles,  in five anda half clays. He was in  eommand of the action at Cut Knife  Creek, which prevented the junction  o' tbe Indian chiefs Poundmaker and  Big Bear with the rebel leader Riel,  and for his services received a medal,  was mentioned in dispatches and recommended for C. M. G. Toward the  close of the rebellion he had command of tbo Turtle Lake column  which was sent in pursuit of Big Bear.  On his return to Toronto in 1866  Lieut. Col. Otter was presnted by the  citizens with an address and a purse  of $700. Since then he has been elevated to the command of the second  military district, and since 1896 has  been inspector of infantry.  In 1895 he was attached for seven  months to tho regular army in England and underwent a course of instruction in the three arms of the service and passed examination as a  lieutenant colonel in the British army.  He was also at Nevv Forest and of tho  German army at Coulogne and Stras-  burg.  In his younger days Col. Otter was  president of the National Lacrosse  Association of Canada, and. has always been a great admirer ot athletic  sports. Ho took a leading part in  the formation of the Canadian Miliary Institute in .Toronto. Only this  past summer Lieut. Col. Otter was  made an honorary A. D. C. to the  Governor General and spent ��������� some  weeks in Ottawa in command 'of the  R. R. C. I., camped-at Rockliffe for  a special course of instruction. He  bas since been- retired from the command of the R. R. C. I. and attached  to the headquarters staff.  The Mail and Empire has said of  Lieut. Col. Otter: "No better soldier  is to he found in Canada,'' and the  Canadian Military Gazette speaks of  bim as "one who has done more  perhaps than anyone elso in Canada  to increase the efficiency of our  military force."  v.

There is no  doubt but that the British forces m  Natal are in great danger. The  division so much sought for by the  Boers has .been accompliehed. Gen-fthe city,  cral Yule .has"been compelled to ab-1  andon.the wounded and prisoners at  Dundee, because his force is too weak  to hold the four and a. half miles separating Dundco from Glencoe. where  there aro 3,500 men-and throe bat-  tories. It is regarded . as not impossible that General Whito may yot  he compelled to concentrate the Natal  forces at Ladysmith and await tho  arrival of tho army corps.

Smith. - Published by The Copp  Clark company, - Limited. Priee,  paper, SO cents; cloth. $1.00.  Lady Bab, or Barbara, or Barbarity  (for cruel hearted was Madame or  Miss Gositer, and so the perwlgged  suitors' she had, called her Barbarity)  is a'heroine indeed. She'is a beauty  "with a. claw." -She may purr .and-let  you pat her,~but look oiit for her  scratchings, for if you run counter to  her whims she might mangle you. The  period the author describes is of the  time of Pope and Congreve, when  there were active Jacobites at work in  Englan.d One of them, Anthony  Dare, was taken by Captain Grantley,  and carried in chains to Cleeby, tho  mansion house of the Earl of Long-  acre, and the Earl was Bab's father.  In pure spirit of mischief at first, the  idea enters Eab's head to rescue the  prisoner. Anthony Dare is so bold,  brave, reckless, handsome, with his  girlish looks and muscles of steel, so  saucy and arrogant, so indifferent to  danger, that in the first five minutes  the proud, tho haughty, the imperious  Bab has lost her heart in him. The  whole story revolves around thc many  incidents of Bab's ingenious methods  for effecting Anthony Dare's escape.  Thc smartness, the vim, the rush of  tho story must he extolled. Lady  Barbara Is bold, reckless, nnd quick as  lightning in devising a plan and In  carrying It out. She is a queer character, and with n stamp of originality,  snd Anthony Dare is quite her match.  Certain peculiarities about this piece  of fiction, taking you out of the beaten  track, render "Lady Barbarity" onc of  those rare romances that leave an  impress oh you.

NOTE AND COMMENT.  It is pretty generally conceded that  any government may with propriety  and considerable advantage to the  people assume control of railways,  telegraph lines and other organized  business which relate to couminniC'i-  tion or tiansportation.of which indeed  the government monopoly of the  postal service is only an example. Such  conservative, nations ns Great Britain,  which owns, controls and operate the  whole telegraph system of the country  nnd Russia, which Imilds nnd runs her  own railways, have led the way so far  in tlie path of practical socialism.  But so far, vve believe, no country has  undertaken nny manufacture except  of material and munitions of war.  But Germany has led the way into  this .new field of governmental activity  and the Scientific American points  ont thnt:l  " By virtue of the law of May 1. the  entire amber production of East  Prussia has passed into the hands of  the government. Paragraph 1 of the.  law roads: "The Imperial government  is empowered to npplv the sum of M  9,750.000 ($2,450,000) to the purchase  of the real estate situated in the districts of Fiscbhausen and Metnel and  in the city of Lonigsberg belonging to  the firm or Stantien & Becker or Privy  Councillor Becker, of Konigsberg. as  well us the entire business and establishment carried on under the same  firm in Germany for the production  and working up of ���������imliei1 and trade in  raw umber, ambroid, melted umber  (colophony) and by products.  .  an impetus to development operations  A. St. G. Hiunmerslev, accompanied  by B. Thomas. 0. E. and M. E., both of  ���������Vancouvei', B,C, went up to the  in the Fish creek section. The consideration was $50,000 and a contract  has been let for 100 feet of tunnel to he  commenced right, away.  Silver Queen on Thursday last. In an  interview with Mr. Hnmmersley on  Wednesday last, he stated it ns his  intention to recommence work if supplies could be got up to the mine.  The Old Gold Mining Co. lias been  taking out some very high grade  galena ore during the past week, and  another trial shipment is being sent to  the- smelter. The company owns  eight different properties, has gond  buildings and bus done n large amount,  of development work. The mines are  beingsteailily worked by n gond force  of men. The ore is of a very high  grade and of midi n character as to  admit of cheap smelting. The C.P.R.  and K. & S. hnve surveyed within four  and five miles respectively of the  mines. It is not the intention of the  management of the company to begin  regular shipments before spring. The  winter contracts are to be let within a  fevv days.  The Primrose is another company  which has laid in a stock of supplies  and is,letting contracts for vviiit.r  work and shipping ore for smelter  tests. The property of* the company  consists of ' seven claims on which  several thousand dollars hns been  expended in development work. The  ore curries high values, especially in  silver and lead. The company expects  to he ready to enter the list of regular  shippers as soon as transportation is  cheapened by the completion of the  railroads which are novv entering the  Lardeiiu-Dunciin.���������Topic.

'Stamping done to order.  M. __. Lawson.  Cost...  The present situation of the Transvaal is unquestionably an anxious one,  It is obvious that the Imperial forces  under Gen. White are greatly outnumbered and it will take consummate  generalship to enable them to hold  theirown until reinforcements arrive.  In spite of the success of the British  arms in the affairs at Glencoe and  Elandslaagte, the advance of the Boers  into Natal has not been checked aud  the troops under Yule, who succeeded  to Gen. Symon's command, have had  to fall buck on the main body under  General White at Ladysmilh, a critical movement, which happily vvas  successfully performed. Tliere the  combined force is apparently awaiting  attack from the Free State Boers on  one side nnd the Transvaal forces on  the other. On the other boundary the  Boers are practically having it all  their own way. The only place of  importance holding out is. Mafeking  and the country and railway between  that point and Kimberley is quite  undefended and the population uf  Boers is friendly to the invaders. Tlie  easy success of the Boers in this quarter is attributed to the supineness or  worse of the Piemier of Cape Colony,  who could not be induced tostiengtheii  the forces of the colony in that direction until the actual outbreak of war  and the stern pressure put on him hy  the Imperial Commissioner brought  him to his senses. This is a striking  proofofthe danger of allowing sentimental feelings of sympathy vvith the.  enemies of the Empire to rule in high  positions in the government, and the  lesson is one which Canadians should  take to heart in view of recent developments at Ottavva and the possibilities  of this Transvaal affair widening into  grave " international complications  "bevorid"the-liuiits-of-South-Africii. ..

The Eva Group, on Fish Creek,  Bonded. -Plans for the Winter in the  Lardeau.  Recent work done on the Silver Belt  pruiio, on the" north fork, hns shown  up an enormous body of ore. The  snowing is ahnut eight feet wide nf  galena nnd curlionuti's. nnd "is considered to ho (uif of the liigiiest. things  yet npeni'd up in lhe Liirdeiiti. Some  splendid Csuniplcs. of the ore were  Ill-ought down to Ferguson n few dnys  ago. This'propcrty, it vvill he remembered, was oiigiiiiilly called thc Big  Five group. Me_-.~-_i.il. Carter and O.  D. Hour are interested in this propertv.  The force of men now at tjic Towser  exceeds twelve men. Work on this  claim vvill lie vigorou _ly prosecuted  during the winter.  T!i������ Cup vvill employ during the  winter a force of hetween 31) and 40  men. The Stim-hine also vvill he  worked, and it, is expected that, a  large shipment, of oie vvill lie. made  during the course Qf the winter. With  t.he adjoining Ti-vvset*, there ought to  he in the neighborhood of 50 men  employed in the Silver Cup hill during  the coming seas-on.

Twecdlc and Hntc-hiioii  of Comaplix. This property is the  most exi nuiidinary ati ike in point of  value that has been made in the  Lai dean division. Although Fish  cieek and its tributaries have always  been known as one of the ^'richest  sections of what is universally termed  on the outside as the Lardeau, still  this strike has thrown the hulk nf the  other jiropei-ties in the shade as regards the value of its surface rock.  Tlie mineral obtained from this property is gold, and tho cropping? run  from S400 to $000 in gold. Cory Men-  hinick and J. A. Magee have claims on  this lead, and on their holdings the  lead as exposed is about 30 feet in  width and containing values as stated  above.
