But whether or no any seii-  ous and legretable consequences ai ise  from Mr. Guuisier's indifference to his  duties and  lesponsibilities", it "is quite  plain that the" justice of, the settlei's  case demands  that thev should be le-  paid for their labor  in   fixing the old  bridge.

SIR WILFRID'S PATRIOTISM    ...  The following character sketch of  Canada's premier is taken from the  columns of The Montreal Star:  Sir Wilfrid's patriotism is very profound, but very shifty. BritiBh to the  core when in London, French in Paris, and American in Chicago; enthusiastically British in Bowmanville, but allowing his government to  be represented as very un-British in  La Patrie, of Montreal. His emotions are not those of a statesman,  but of a comedian, and his high  flown expressions, mean as little to  him as the rant of a third rate actor.  His strong point is his versatility;  he has played many parts, and to do  him justice always tries to suit the  taste of his audience. Having got  into power by a successful appeal to  race prejudice, it is natural that he  should think It high time for Canadians to sink all race lines, all creed  lines, all party lines and unite in contemplation of Wilfrid, the Altogether  Admirable. The whole tone of his  recent utterances indicates a thorough  appreciation fo his own merits and  his own importance. . His sublime  poses are approaching the ridiculous.  When the premier thoroughly real-  c Ires that he has completely mistaken-  the temper of the Canadian people  ���������with reference to the Empire's  quarrels he will do the lightning  change act as quickly as any man on  the stage, and that is the performance  for which his many admirers are now  clamoring. '  CANADA AND THE TRANSVAAL.  From the Calgary Herald  - It is now just three weeks since  Sir .Wilfrid Laurier declared that the  government could not. send ��������� militiamen out of this country except for  purposes of Canadian defence, and  that the cabinet had no power to  spend money in connection with the  Transvaal war without the consent of  parliament. Tomorrow night, "however, 1,000 Canadian soldiers will  have embarked from Quebec 'for Cape  Town or Durban. The government  is paying the cost of recruiting, furnishing the equipment and paying the  men down to the time they are land-  ��������� ed in Africa. So far the premier has  abandoned the position he took when  he made his statement to the Toronto  Globe,'which appeared in the issue of  that paper of October 5th.  So much the government has yielded to the force of public opinion,  which has heen raised to a high pitch  of enthusiasm., The premier has abandoned his whole position. By sending the troops to South Africa he admits that he has power to send them.  By spending money without a vote he  says that he has power to do so. If  the government has power to pay the  Canadian volunteers up to the time  they arrive in-South Africa, it has  power lo pay them while they are  abroad. And "this is what the reople  in the' English speaking province at  least, think that the government  ought to do. By the present arrangement it is proposed to ask' the vol-  ���������unteers-to_ser-ve_as^British_r_egularS-  with an allowance of a shilling a day  from the Imperial , treasury, ann  nothing from Canada after the arrival  of the contingent in Africa. Against  this there is the strongest Kind of  protest. The people of Canada are  ���������willing and more than willing to relieve the British - government of all  expense connected with this expedi-  . tion. They are ready to pay the  "soldiers and furnish them. They are  rather ashamed of making a parade  of supplyine a contingent at the expense of the British tax payer, who  is already furnishing " armies and  fleets to defend Canada and all the  other colonics. It is not a larje  thine for millions of Canadian people,  ���������whose rovernment claims a surplus  of uii'lions of dollars, and which has  a militia force of 31.000 men. to s������nd  1.000 trooos to Africa free of cost io  the Empire. Oth������r colonlpf, with a  much smaller militia and less ponula-  tion have offered to send proportionate lar.er forces, and to pay the  whole bill. Canada, whose people  are as ready as those of Australiana  both to servo and to pay, has ben  the last to offer troops, and the only  one which has not olfered to pay the  men.  In his speech  in the Briiish house  of commons, Mr. George     Wyndliam,  nuclei- secretary Cor war, when asking  tho house to  vote   ������8,000,000, or  say  $10,000,000, for the Boer war had something to say about      the army corps  now going out. What is meant by au  army corps may  demand u brief explanation.     The army corps originally, as, for Instance, at Waterloo, was  a somewhat nebulous body, but it has  since   been   regularised   by   th'e   Germans.     The handling of great masses  of men entailed large     groupings for  the purposes of command and administration, and the division���������the     only  unit complete in the three arms���������was  not sufficiently comprehensive.    With  universal  service and  a rigidly territorial system, there was no difficulty  in   assigning   a   larger   unit   to   geographical  areas.      Thus  in   Germany  and elescwhero a district is made to  furnish an army corps complete with  all  its details. The application of the  army corps organisation to Great Britain, where universal service does not  exist and a rigid territorial system is  impossible,   lias  been frequently  criticised.      The     various      components  must necessarily  bo brought together  from places far apart.     Scotland and  Ireland,  the Channel      Islands, Newcastle and Dcvonport,    Pembroke tuul  Dover had to be drawn upon to make  the  first army corps which  has  ever  existed  in  England, says one  writer,  who adds:  Tlie Composition of the Unit.  Tlie composition of  this largo  unit  lias  been tho  subject  of much academic   discussion.      As  laid   dovvn,   ii  consists o������  three complete      infantn  divisions, each of two brigades of fom  battalions wilh a squadron and three  Held  batteries.      "Corps  troops"  consisting of a squadron of cavalry, tvvo  horse and  six  iield  balleries,   an  infantry battalion, and various engineer  units, are added.     A cavalry division  would   consipt   of   two   brigades  and  two  horse  artillery  batteries,  a  bal-  lalion of mounted infantry, and a detachment of mounted engineers.     Fot  the line of communications     infantry  battalions would be     allotted,     theii  numbers depending upon the length oi  the line to bO guarded and-the genera,  military conditions.     An army corps  in England is practically* a  schedule  of widely scattered units, to     which  mobilisation points have beeu assignee  and      for      wliich      certain      stores;  are maintained.      Inclusive of supply  and medical services, the total numbei  of   men  is,   roughly,   35,000,   with   S-)  suns,  10,000  horses or pack animals  and 1,700 vehicles.     The     authorised  war strength of a cavalry division b  about G.700 officers and mon, with li*  guns,  0,000 horses and pack animals  and   450  vehicles.      Tho  mobilisation  of an army corps and cavalry divisioi  would therefore imply the provision ci  about 41,700 officers and men, 9G guns  10,000 animals and 2,150 vehicles, exclusive of troops for the line of communications.-  To complete the number of- men a  large draft upon the army reserves,  must bo made, as the special reserve  recently constituted would not. nearly  suffice. When in 1S70, Germany placed 370,000 men in the Palatinate in li.  days, the world marvelled. No more  complete adaptation of means to a bit  end had ever been seen; yet, in a  sense, the operation, vvas a simple  ono. The men, the rtansport, and the  stores were all ready. .The great general staff under Von Moltke's eye had  worked out every'detail, carefully  gauging the requirements and as carefully planning the arrangements by  which these requirements^ were to be  met. The'British problem was- essentially different. When the various  units of the army corps had assembled and equipped themselves at their  scattered centres, they had to be  brought to various points on the coast  and embarked In extemporised transports of varying capacity. The larger  units had to be separated from each  other and from their transport. The  transport, itself had to be specialised,  and many thousands of mules and  bullocks bought.  After Disembarkation.  After disembarkation at the South  Africa port the real organization of  the transport must begin. Not till  then can the larger units be brought  together and equipped with their multifarious vehicles, their hospital and  supply details, their ammunition columns and their engineer detachments.  Brigades���������and still less divisions���������will  not be complete field units until they  havo land and disentangled their  belongings from the vast mass of  animals and vehicles discharged at  the .bases. The force which it has  "I5een~deemefl"nifcessary���������t6'"rsend~ to-  South Africa is "far greater thau any  which has ever heen dispatched at  one time from British shores.  The test of organizing power will  arise only after disembarkation, an.  it is in anticipation of the difficulties  which must necessarily present themselves that a considerable number of  army service corps are being sent  out.   o   The victory gained by thc attacking  force seems to have been most satisfactorily complete, sinco the enemy  were driven off, after suffering severe  loss, leaving their artillery in the  hands of the British.  Today's dispatches go lo show that  tlio losses on the British side . at  Olencoo were not so severe as earlier  reports indicated. They also show  that officers make up an unusually  largo percentage of the killed and  wounded, a fact which testifies anew  to the heroic, self devotion of the  Uritish army officer. It is a well  known part of Boer tactics to direct  their best sharp shooti,ng skill  against tho officers, who are naturally  tho easiest marks in an advancing  line. For tho bravo men vvho fell  at Glencoe there will be a sincere  national mourning, and special regret  will be felt because of the mortal  wounding of Gen. Symons, whose  courage and skill appear to have been  largely instrumental in securing this  decisive success.  '. THE PEKISKO SUICIDE  RAILWAYS IN WAR  WHITE.   GWILLIM    &  SCO FT  The Great- Problem   of   Army Transportation in South Africa���������Five  Routes From Coast to  Transvaal.  Full   Details   of  thc  Death of Adolf  Pflughaupt  Sergeant Browns, N. W. M. P., of  High River, received intelligence on  an afternoon oi last week that Mr. A.  Pflughaupt, of Eden Valley, Pekisko,  had committed suicide at his ranche.  The coroner was at once communicated with and an inquest was held ut  the ranche on Saturday.  From the evidence it appeared  that Mr. Pflughaupt had returned  home on October 7th from the Brandon lunatic asylum to which he had  been committed a month previous,  and that to all appearanccB ho was  just as insane on his return as he was  when sent away. He constantly  threatened to take his life and that of  his "enemies.'' On the afternoon of  October 19th he compelled all the in-  mateB of his house to go into the garden to pick potatoes, stating that he  himself wus going out to fish.  On   her  return   to   the  house   Mrs.  Pflughaup   noticed      her      husband's  watch  on   his desk, and his revolver  vvas empty.     Fearing that something  had   happoncd   she  sent  Wlnnerllng,  the hired  man  to look  for.her  husband.     Following thn footprint*     in  tho snow to tho     bridge over      High  river,  Winnerling  camo  across      the  body of Pflughaupt quite dead      and  lying in a pool with a revolver bullet,  thorugh tho head.      Round  tho body  was a rope, one end of which had been  made fast to the bridge     A   looking  glass was tied to tho belt of tho deceased by a piece of line, and from a  button  on  his vest was  suspended  a.  revolver lately     discharged.     All thc  witnesses wero  unanimous      in   their  opinion that Pflughaupt was a dangerous lunatic for weeks before his death.  After hearing     the     evidence,  thn  jury brought in a verdict of   suicide  while in a state of unsouad mind and  iddert a rider totheir Tcrdict requesting the proper authoriti������_ to call on  the   management   of  the   asylum   at  Brandon for stn explanation of  their  action,  in  allowing Pflughaupt to go  ���������it large.     The jury asked the coroner  t.o see that their     verdict   . was not  pigeon   holed, but     placed     without  delay before the proper authorities.   .   o   Barristers,  Solicitors,  Notaries Public.

BOER STRENGTH AND WEAKNESS  The gallant Etorming of the heights  at Glencoe by the Dublin Fusiliers,  the first feat'of the war, should be a  sufficient answer to the disloyal resolutions of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and-clear the Irish name  from the dishonor cast upon it by the  Montreal fanatica. Ireland has given  more for Britain than ehe ever took  from lt. and every British batttlc  field bears glorious testimony to the  loyalty of Ireland's sons.  N. A. Belcourt. Liberal M. P. for  Ottawa, in an open letter to iho Ottawa Free Press takes issue with M.  Bowassa, Liberal member for La-  belle, who resigned as a protest  against the action of the government  in .Bending a Canadian contingent to  the Transvaal. Mr. Belcourt contends that tho goremment-s course  ���������was ' justifiable and characterizes  Bouraesa's contention that the government has sacrificed the Independence, of Canada as nothing moro  serious than a hideous nightmare. Mr.  Bourassa, who seeks re-election     will  Tho strength of the Boer forces lies  in their movement iu small bodies,  in their good general standard of  marksmanship, and in their knowledge  of the country..;.- Their weakues.-  arlses from the want of organization,  of military cohesion, and of transport  and supply arrangements. While,  therefore, ral.Ih In comparative!:,  small force���������the Iioi-fps living upon  the gra..s of the country���������can lie carried out, large movements are practically impossible, ar.d the advantages of operating ou. interior lines  cannot fully he realized. With time  and the facilities afforded by the railways, strong positions could be taken  up. supplies accumulated, and an effective defence offered against front  attacks. In the absence of organized  transport, however, movprnonts conforming to unexepeeted strategical developments are impracticable. On  the realization of the inherent disabilities of unorganized forces the successful conduct of a campaign would  depend. An old "Old Prussian  Officer," writing in a recent number  of the,, "Frankfurter Zeitung," comments upon the errors committed In  1S81, and goes on to depreciate thc  training and qualifications of British  officers, who, he state.fi, content themselves with a study of tho battle of  Waterloo, and hnve not reached thc  level of modern tactical requirements.  Sinco 1881 tho British army has made  prreat advances, says a writer in defence.   ^-o   THE SUCCESS AT GLENCOE  It has boon rightly observed that  lhc railway systems ot South Africa  vvill play an Important part in the  Boer war; and thc fact that the wholo  of the ports from wliich railway lines  con verge on the two republics of the  Transvaal and Orange Free Slate are  In the hands of Great Britain is an  enormous factor in favor of the  power whose forces have to come over  the sen. The fact thnt Major Gir-  ounrd (the Canadian) has been transferred from his responsible duties in  Egypt as the director of railways to  lake charge of the transportation  arrangements in thc Transvaal shows  that nothing will be left to chance in  that direction.  The Transvaal and thc Orange Free  Slate may he approached by five different routes. The first in point of  importance from all points of view,  not even excepting strategic, so far  t? the preservation ot the empire in  Africa is concerned, is unquestionably  t.he railway from Cape Tovvn. the cap-  Hal of Capo Colony and chief port  in South Africa, to Bulttwayo, 1.374  miles in length, passing through Kimberley and Mafeking, running along  ���������bo western flank of the two republics--  ���������md forming si connection with tht-  Free State frcm Dc Aar Junction.  Next In Strategic Value.  Next to this railway of greatest  strategic value is the main line from  Durban, the principal port in Ntilal  by way of Pietcrmaritzburg, tho capital of that colony; to Ladysmith,  Charleston, and the Transvaal frontier, where it connects with Uk-  NTaUil-Transvaal railway running to  Tohaiinesbiivg and      Pretoria. *   From  Purban, or Port Natal, as it is sometimes called, to the frontier, the distance is 307 miles, and from the fron-  t.ier to Johannesburg is 17G miles, and  Ui Pretoria 201 miles.  There are two other lines"    running  from Capo Colony ports into the republics. Ono is called the Midland  section���������the Capo Town system is the  Western���������running from Port Elizabeth  lo Norval's Point on  the Free State  frontier.     At   the    frontier, which is  32S   miles   distant  from   the   port,   it  connects with  the Orange Free Stat"  trunk line,  whicli     passes     through  Bloemfontcin to the Transvaal.     The  ith or. system is called      the Easterr  section, which runs from East London  ���������a port of some importance      lying  near Port Elizabeth���������to Aliwal North,  a distance ot 2S0-miles, and connects  with tho Orange Free State trunk line  hv.a   branch   from   Albert  junction.  Hireo miles north of Burghersdrop, to  Springfontein,   67   miles      in   length.  ind with the Midland section of the  Capo railways by a line'from Stoerm-  hcrg Junction lo Middlobiirg Road," CS  miles long.  From Delogogoa Bay.  The fifth and certainly not the least  important railway route     from     the  coast is that hitherto known     as the  Portuguese system, connecting     with  the Netherlands railway in the Transvaal, and running     from Delagoa bay  by wav of Komati Poort to Pretoria.  3!9 mfles distant.     This is by far thc  shortest route from the     coast to the  Transvaal:  and as      the cession      of  Delagoa bay and the territory immediately adjoining it to Great Britain  is   only  awaiting  thc   ratification   of  thc Imnerial parliament, it cannot lie  doubted" that, this system will be large-  lv utilized to convey troops from the  magnificent harbor of Delacoa     aby.  where  1.000  vessels  can  ride   at anchor, to the scene of hostilities.

In fact, the despatches  already state that tbey had laid mines  over the bridge across the Sterksprult,  near Komati Poort. which took manv  vea-s tn build, and cost about .CC.000.

Part the Railways Will Play.  Tn what proportion the army corps  when it reaches South Africa, will be  distributed over these routes to the  scene of. hostilities it i.s useless tn  speculate, but that all these systems  will be 'utilized is beyond doubt.  There will be no difficulty in the  landing of troops at all the ports  which form the railway termini, and  from the ma.in lines of railway v-hieh  hnve been described there are numerous branches which will render the  conveyance of large bodies of men  to any glvfln point a matter that can  be accomplished without dlfiitinlty.

London, Oct. 25.���������The     parllamen- i Spanish-American war, and it is con-  tary secretary of tho war oflice in the' fWereti  that the American   losses  at  ' ' ,   ,   ,. ���������. ,, I Ki  Cuucy and  Sau Juan  would  have  house of commons reported that Field, bu0��������� ]UUch  heilvll,r  xi  tho  spaulurds  Marshall Lord Wolseley, commander-  in-chief of the forces, sums up the  situation as follows: Genoral Yule  has fallen back to effect a junction  with Sir George Stewart White. He  camped on Monday eevnlng about 10  miles -south of Dundee, without seeing anything of the enemy during tho  march and has since been reported.  All is well on the Waschhank river.  General White fought a successful  action with an Orange Free State  forco on Tuesday in the road between  Ladysmith and New Castle and should  havo joined hands with General Yule  last evening. General Yule ropons  that his wounded are doing well. The  Boer wounded are treated the samc as  the British and there is every rerasoc  to believe that the Boers will treat  tho British wounded in their hand!  in the same humane manner. Thc  afternoon papers sharply criticize  Lord Wolseley's summary of the  Natal situation. They say that it it.  a distinct resemblance to -the statement of the Spanish ministry when  preparing their country-men for thc  news ot the disaster     at     Santiago.  , This_ is probably an overestimated  view. There is no denying the great  suspense and anxiety existing and  whicli has been increased by the report in circulation purporting to eni-  . anate  from  official  quarters      to  the  1 effect that the Boers havo secure*;  the services of 13,000 natives. Vague  and varied estimates of the Boer.-  and tho absence of anything official on  tho subject is arousing misgivings of  to whether tho beaten enemy suffe~~-  ed'proportionately to tlio disastrous  losses of the victors. The British  ���������military authorities hope to have  wireless telegraphy in operation - in  South Africa within three '���������" weeks,  when they hope the difficulties experienced from the cutting of the  wires will be obviated as it will be  only necessary to establish communication with a point at which'the ordinary wires are intact.     One of th?  ' most .disquieting stories comes from  Ladysmith to the effect that an  Englishman .who arrived there  Dundee-on Sunday evening after escaping through the Boer linos the  previous  night reported  that the  en-  . emy were shelling the town and  the camp with heavy guns, while the  ���������hells of the British were unable to  reach the batteries of the enemy.  Subsequently the man added the  camp was shifted a mile or so in  order to.be out of reach of tho Beors  who were flring on the magazine in  the town.     A' courteous note has been  . received from General Conje to Coi.  Baden-Powell offering afair proposal  for the exchange of the wounded prisoners. . This indicates that when ths  Boers fired on the ambulance train,  which was attempting to pick up the  -dead, they did so by mistake. A  native rumor says that Colonel  Plumer Attala has encaged and defeated a force of Boers. Severn"!  ladles -on hearing that their husband"*  had been captured visited the Boer  camp and were courteously received.  Their Interpositions for .their husbands were snocesFful      and ,  the r.-  - united families have arrived ln Kimberley. ' The prisoners report that  they -were well trerated.  Inul stood their ground like the  Boers. According to the ��������� BnibSubi  dispatch, Dr. Leyds, tho diplomatic  agent of the Transvaal in Europe,  has issued a statement that tho Boers  have now nearly 100,000 men in the  Held.  London, Oct. 27.���������The oilicial announcement of the joining of General  White and General Yule came as a  great relief and all the more in view  of the fact lhat the later dispatches  show that only the incapacity ot thc  intelligence department of tho Boors  saved General Yule's column from  what might have been  A Great Disaster.  It seems that on Friday Dundee was  full of alarms. Heavy flring was  heard at 1 o'clock and again at 4. A  severe thunderstorm soon after stopped the Boer cannonade. Saturday  passed in the same- anxious manner,  *.n momentary expectation of an attack. Tho British finally evacuated,  aking all they could, but leaving  plenty behind for the Boers to loot.  Tho appointments of  The Boer Hospital  nt Dundee is described as very inadequate and primitive.. The Boers  ���������hcnisclvcs in the absence of a nurs-  .ng staff got only very scant attention.     Gen Yule's column had  A Very Exhausting March,  "hiefly it is believed by night. The  reason for the night march is not  ?iven, Lut it was probably from fear  "f Boer sin prises. Heavy rain and  ���������nist hampered the march, but were  Ocrhaps the means of saving General  Yule's column from molestation. It  'ook the column 24 hours to cover the  iast 16 miles.. It is reported that Sir  Wm. Penn  ���������   Symons Died  on  Wednesday,  not      yesterday,  and  ivas buried at Dundee yesterday.  The war office received a . telegram  from General White, dated Ladysmith,  Thursday, to the eftect that ali the  Hussars were alive but prisoners. A  from belated dispatch sent from Glencoe  camp on the night of the battle ad-  inltb that very few Boers, dead or  wounded, were found on the field in  ihat vicinity. It explains ' this by  .laying that throughout tho fight the  Boers in .accordance vvith tlieir usual  custom, buried their dead and carried  off,their wounded" ' immediately after  they, fell. Those left representing  only the casualties during -the last  moments of the fighting. Even their  disabled cannon",had beon removed,  although broken pieces of them could  be seen lying about. The war ls  having its natural effect in Cape Colony. Everything ls at famine prices.  Horse Flesh Is at a Premium.  A Dutch circular is being secretly  circulated in the Krugersdorp district  repealing to the Dutch to stand  "���������boulder to shoulder against "the  tyrant who *nevcr"keeps his faith.''  WAR OFFICE DISPATCH  Capture of  British    Officers  Boers.  by the  London, Oct. 26.���������A dispatch to The  Daily Telegraph from Ladysmith dated Monday says: Thirty of the 18th  Hussar's who were sent to intercept  the retreat of the Boers from Elands-  laagte were cut off     by the  , enemy.  '-Tinder-Sergeant���������Baldrey-they- fought  their way across Biggarsberg, tho  enemy pursuing and firing at them at  a'range of 300 yards along the passes.  They arrived here at 10 o'clock this  ' morning. Three of the troopers are  missing, owing to the break down of  their hofses. The Boers used' a  maxim. The Hussars were fired at  as far down at Modersprut. The  war office returns show that the total  British-casualties since the beginning  ot hostilities reach 597, and 18 officers  ���������having been killed and 15 wounded.  There are 13 unaccounted for. This  total, however, does not include the  squadron of the 18th Hussars wnich  went astray near Dundee,1 or of tho  officers of the Dublin Fusiliers. A  report of the heavy losses sent from  Rielfonteln came as an unpleasaut  surprise, as General White's telegram  to the war office yesterday gave the  impression that this was merely a  brush. The censorship which is  always' a delicate matter, is working  smoothly without a hitch. This  exactly bits the state of affairs today.  An ominous veil is still drawn over  the movements of General Sir G. S.  White  and  General Yule .beyond  be-  ' lated Ladysmith. A dispatch ��������� concerning the Elandslaagte fight is still filtering in. The British public are in  complete darkness and are left to  conjecture over the coolced war office  dispatches. The officials at the war  office last evening said that very ,few  dispatches had been received and that  ���������i nothing was expected till morning.  It is practically certain that   General  UOnOUnCUOO   U   P9i03"j3   AS.OU   SBtl   OIllJi.  with General White, although this  was not brought about on Tuesday,  ���������nieht as announced in the Daily Mail,  but on Wednesday,and as both are now  in a nosition of safety the conjecture  concertos Itself with the manner of  Gcnerrt Yule's retreat. While tho  conceaUup: of the facts regarding  General Tnle's retreat can be amply  justified on tho ground ot Keeping  the intelligence from the Boors the  hiding of the news respecting the  Hussars and tho Fusiliers who were  apparently captured in the battle nt  Glencoi" in severely criticized, even no  Intimation having been glvon about  tho officers who were missing. Tho  'heavy Iofbpr of the British  are commented upon     as  - London,  Oct.   26.���������The  war      office  has issued  the following: ,,  "We learn from unofficial sources  that the following officers, whose absence was not previously noted by us  are prisoners in the enemy's hands:  Eighteenth Hussars���������Lt. Col. Moller,  Major, Dreville and Captain Pollock.  Dublin Fusiliers���������Captain Lonsdale,  Lts. Lemeseurier, Garvice, Grimshaw,"  Majondie and Shore. It is presumed  that the whole squadron of the 18th  Hussars under . thc officers * whose  names are given are taken prisoners.   o   THE  RIFLE  BRIGADE   ARRIVES  ALASKAN  BOUNDARY  Canada's  Final    Proposition    for    a  Permanent Settlement of  the Dispute  London, Oct. 25.���������The Associated  Press has enabled us to authorltively  state Canada's final proposition for  tho permanent settlement of the Alaskan dispute. It is very different  from the former demands and was  dellevered to the United States ambassador, Jos. E. Choate, by the Canadian minister of marine and fisheries, Sir Louis Henry Davies, before  the latter sailed and was dispatched  today to Washington by tho officials  of the United States embassy. It is  as follows:  "That the boundary line hy arbitrated ontrem8 similar to thoso imposed  by tho United States and Great Brit-  tain over Venezuela, particularly  thoso provisions of making 50 year's  occupancy by either Bide a conclusive  evidence of title of occupancy. Lesu  than that period to be taken ar,  equity allows under thc international  law. That as a condition precedent  to nnd absolutely preliminary to arbitration Skagway and Dvca would he  conceded to the United Slates without  further olnim |f Canada reserved  1 yramid Harbor. In other word?  Canada gives up much of the disputed  gold country -In return for a seaport  but stipulates that she milst forego  the latter before she agrees to arbitrate tho boundary line.  the;  SiR CHARLES TUPPER  Concludes    Arrangements    for  Insurance of the Canadian  " Contingent  ..Ottawa, Oct. 25.���������Sir Charles Tupper  has concluded arrangements with the  Ocean Accident and Guarantee Co.  by which he effects the insurance of  one million dollars upon the ollicers  and men of the Canadian contingent.  A prominent Montrealer is going to  pay the premiums. In the case of  death the heirs of deceased - will  receive one   thousand dollars.  -    PRICE  OF DIAMONDS  New York, Oct. 25.���������Since the IGth  instant diamonds in the rough have  advanced twice iri price, in each  case a raise of five per cent, making  a total increase in the price of 55 per  cent during the last six months. So  far cut diamonds havo not been affected, but soon as the rough stones  are put on the market a proportional  rise in the cost will result in the  finished product.  BRILLIANT MOVE BY  GEN. YULE  Effects    a Junction     With     General  White Near Ladysmith.  Cape Town, Oct. 25.���������The correspondent of the Daily Mail .telegraphing at 9:45 last night says that Gen.  eral Yule performed a brilliant strategical movement by - a sweep march  lo the south, leaving Glencoe empty.  He has effected a junction of forces  with General White slightly to thc  north of Ladysmith. The two are  now in a position to offer battle. It  is believed the first attack will be  made on a large Orange Free State  force which has entered Natal by the  way of Tintwa Pass' and which hae  been harrassing Ladysimth. Tho  military authorities .decided that by  joing these forces the two generals  would bo better able to cope with one  large force at a time than having  two small detachments to oppose  simultaneously. ��������� Only 40 miles now  separates the two Boer forces hence  the seed for speed and holding action. The two sections of the Boer  army outnumber the entire British  rorce by three to one. Hard fighting  is certain at a very early date. Our  men are confident and there is much  enthusiasm. The fighting today outside Ladysmith was a mere brush.  The losses on* either side were insignificant, merely an artillery duel ln  which the Boers got the worst.of the  deal.

The full text  of his speech which has aroused the  greatest enthusiasm here, appears in  this   morning's issue of The Gazette.  CANADIAN CONTINGENT  On the Main Road Between  smith and Dundee.  Ladysmith, Oct. . 25.���������Information  has been received here to the effect  _that_the.Boers_have.established-them-  selves in considerable numbers in a  good position west of the main road  leading from Ladysmith to Dundee.  At Dundee the force formerly commanded by General Symons, and since  by General Yule, was falling back on  Ladysmith by way of Helpma Kaar  road, Beith, and the valleys of the  Waschbanlc and the Sun rivers and is  expected to reach the Sunday river  valley on Monday, therefore he moved  out a strong force to cover thc  movement of Yule's command. The  enemy was discovered about seven  miles out of Ladysmith in a position  of exceptional strength, west of the  road. When the commander of the  Boer force saw that preparations wore  being made against him he opened  fire with one gun with great accuracy.  Our artillery soon got into position  and the gun was silenced. Our  troops were ordered, to occupy a  strong ridge parallel to the enemy's  position but nearer to the road. I  then confined my efforts to occupying  him and hitting him hard enough to  prevent his taking action against  Yule's command. Numbers of the  enemy fled to the west and flring had  practically ceased at 2 o'clock.  Will be Enthusiastically   Received  at  Ottawa.

Bergen, president or tho Holland Society of Bergen, in an address.  In presenting the address to the president he said: The dolegation has  no desire to embarrass the friendly  relations existing hetween the United  States and Great Britain. On the  contrary it is becauso of the friendliness and good fooling they presented  tho petition to the president in the  hope that In the wise and good discretion of the executive a way-might  be found to offer the timely offices of  the government of the United States  in tho endeavor to allay the bloody  conflict now going on in Africa. This  being thc lino of tho new diplomacy  enunciated at the Hnguo peace conference. The hopo is expressed that  honorable terms for peaco might he  secured and the honor of both countries bo sustained tuul the names of  our sister republics bo not stricken  from lho earth. No people would  welcome our good offices liko the  British. Thc South African republics  were ready for mediation and the  United States aa a friend to both  should he tho mediator. The president thanked thc gentlemen for appearing and tho sentiments expressed  in behalf of peace. Such sentiments  had his sympathy, but in a case where  so many interests woro involved  moves must be made with great reserve, lest injury be done lo some  parties. The fact moreover should  not bo overlooked that America had  interests at stake. The president reiterated that ho assured the delegation thnt the petition woultl receive  his most earnest, consideration.  / A tf  x ferguson x  II kOSSLAMD  Of THE LARDEAU  THE COTTON INDUSTRY  In a Critical Condition in India.

WAR OFFICE DISPATCH  General Yule Compelled    to Abandon  Glencoe and Dundee.  London, Oct. 25.���������The war office  dispatch seems to realize the worst  fears. General Yule has abandoned  not only Dundee, but Glencoe also,  and as far as present news would indicate he has neither poined General  White nor reached Ladysmith. General White's successful action was announced in parliament by Mr. Wynd-  pnd seemed to resolve itself into a  mere" engagement with Orange Free  State troops. While Yule is slipping  southward it is evident from official  dispatches that both Commandant  General Joubert's' Column on the  north and the Orange Free State  troops on the west now occupy  strong positions and that nothing  hinders Yule's retirement and getting  to Ladysmith from the south east.  Until reinforcements arrive it seems  that General White will be obliged to  concentrate on Ladysmith. It is believed the government havo other  dispatches not yet made  public. v   o -  DEATH OF A CLERGYMAN   Toronto, Oct. 25.���������The Rev.
