SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1899.  $2.00 a Year in Advance*.  >^^^^^^  NOTE AND COMMENT.  THE  MOST  COMPLETE  AND  LARGEST  STOCK  OF  Ever Exhibited  in Revelstoke...  Just Opened Up.  "We have been extremely  fortunate in securing' the  sole agency for Revelstoke  for pobitively the best brand  of Eubbeh Goods on the  market to-day, namely the  "Maltese Cross Brand"  STUB PROOF.  1  They are certainly the best  weaving and most comfortable claps of Rubber Goods  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.  000  Every thing that represents a reliable, well regulated up-to-  dato Clothing Department, the chtu-acteristic-features of winch;  are its completeness nud worthiness. Our ideas about the .  Clothim* business arc manifested by the dependable stocks wc  carry the variety, of worthy styles we show and the easy  prices we make throughout. It took time, money and great  , -       ,        Uns to develop the business to that degree of excellence it  r^SS^ffi  and  is  an evidence or the conhdence we  - have Vdned  a confidence we shall always continue to ment and sustain.        -  Newsier talk can do little justice to these  comprehensive stocks       At best we  can  m"rely hint of what we have and leave the rest for a personal vtsit.  print these brief details to-day: f    <���������  It bus  become  quite  appiucnt th.it  the Boers are finding Genernl While  and his little handful of Briiish sol-  diets n great deal more thnn  u  match  foi them.     It   may be  true  th.it the  resources of the Transvaal in the w.iy  of numbers   were underestimated by  the war offic e.   The fact prob.ilily is  tlu\t there are large numbers of N.ital  and Cape Colony Dutch and Uitlunders  of other than British  nationality in  their ranks.   But on the other hand j  their   capacity   as   iiregnlnr   gueiilliil  troops and "a.   marksmen  must have  been   just   as   much   overruled.   The  surprises and  lightning dashes have  been mnde by our own troops and the  Boers hnve never been lendy for tlicm.  And it seems almost, incomprehensible,  how it is that  men armed  with  the  hest rifles and supposed to be the finest  miirksmen in the world,  cannot actually     prevent   Tommy  Atkins  from  coming to close quarters.   So far tlieir  only success has been due  to nn accident, in which tieachery  in  nil probability had a very large share.   Gen.

It seems to bo the rule that the  disturbances chronicled in the foregoing list were passed by as matlters  of course, both by the proprietors and  spectators, and ihe conclusion is inevitable that the deterioration of the  morals of the players is accompanied  by corresponding degeneracy on the  bleachers.

It is to the  credit of tho North West that baseball  as now played, can no longer maintain a foothold here, and manifestly  the time is not far distant when the  disgraceful exhibitions on eastern  grounds will necessarily he discontinued.  The First Battalion of the Glouces-  icisniro Regiment    is the old    ibth,  wnicli ought to be dear to c_-aauin.ii-  for Wolfe's connection with it and for  it_ services at Louisberg  and  Quebec  in tbe closing years 01 me old regime,  liven then it   vvas one of the    olucst  corps in  ths army, having    been organized in 169..     Four years later it  was in part disbanded���������the remaining  companies having    left    to    garrison  Newfoundland.      It did    good    work  under Marlborough    and    still    bears  Ramilies on  its    colors.      It    fought  intrepidly and suffered much at Fon-  tenoy and in Cape Breton and under  Wolfe at Quebec was true to its  already honorable record.      Duringvthe  remaining  40  years  of  the    century,  the 28th served in America, tbe West  Indies, Spain and Flanders, and began  the present century hy doing feats of  valor  in  Egypt,   at  Copenhagen   and  at Corunna.      Its peninsular    history  ls marked    by    achievements    which  militarj- writers have always    ranked  among the worthiest in warfare. They  helped to win Waterloo, nor is there  any regiment  in  the  service  that  is  better entitled to that great name on  its color.     The 61st forms the second  battalion of the  Gloucestershire regiment, but, honorable htough    its record is, it does not immediately concern   us.      The   Gloucestershire  regiment bears as badges the arms of the  city  of   Gloucester,   with   the   sphinx  and the word Egypt, and two twigs ot  laurel on the collar.      On the    regi-  - mental colors are these names: Ramilies, Louisberg, Quebec, 1759; Egypt,  Maida, Corunna, Alavera, ' Bardessa,  Albuera, Salamanca, Vittoria, Pyrenees, Nivelle, Nive, Orthes, Toulouse,  Peninsula, Waterloo, Punjaub, - Chil-  lianwallah, Goojerat, Aima, Inkerman,  Sebastopol, Delhi. Thc * uniform is  scarlet with white facings.  The First Battalion of the Princess  Victoria's Royal Irish Fusiliers is the  famous old S7th reigment. Though  of comparatively recent formation,  dating from 1793, the STth soon gained  a distinction which made the name  familiar to all who were interested in  soldierly courage and endurance  With theirQown countrymen the corps  - have always been favorites and their  service at Tel-el-kebir is not yet for  gotten by the middle aged. Without  going into details it may suffice to say  -that they have their share (with the  ' S9th) in the honors to which the colors of the present territorial regiment  bear witness. These are the following  historic names: Monet Video. Tala-  vera, Baressa, arifa, Java, Vittoria,  Nivelle, Orthes, Toulouse, Peninsula,  Niagara, Ava. Sebastopol, Egypt. 1SS2-  84. The uniform is scarlet with fac-  ines of blue and fusilier's cap. The  badees are the Prince of W7ales  plume over the Irish Harp on a  grenade and above the grenade the  coronet of the Princess Victoria, on  the cap: also an eagle in a laurel  wreath on a grenade, the monogram  and coronet of the Princess Victoria  and above them the sphinx over the  word  Egypt, on the collar.  DECLINE OF BASEBALL.  When Harry Furniss,, the English  cartoonist, made the American game  -^-of-ba3eballnbe-objcct-of-his_saurer  he portrayed features of the diamond  fully as objectionable to himself as  to the average American. Baseball i=  on the decline, and the, reason for il  is the encouragement given to rowdyism among players and spectators.  The Chicago Tribune has compiled  "The-Baseball Rows of 1S99" and has  therebv furnished the reading public  valuable statistics on the moribund  condition of the "sport.' Omitting  the" multifarious minor acts of blackguardism and rowdyism committed by  the hired men of the club owners, the  Tribune prints the following condensed list of disgraceful scenes at the  games:      _���������  May 2.���������Row at Pittsburg-SL Louis  game!

Tho Globe contents itself wilh  platitudes about the freedom of our  parliamentary    institutions    which it  knows are In' no danger. The  Kingston Whig says."in all sincerity,''  that Mr.Tarto does too much talking.  Aftor vaguely commenting on his last  speech, it comes to the conclusion  that "Mr. Tarte has been speaking in  a disconnected way, and has not been  saying all he means." Between talking too much and saying too little,  Mr.  Tarte will find  it protty hard to  draw the line. Probably be would  best please the Ontario Liberals if he  would keep his mouth shut. But that  is just what nothing will induce Mr.  Tarte   to  do.   o   An Unhappy Tragedy    Occurs in  Calgary on Saturday Afternoon.  From tho  Calgary Herald  A well known citizen perhaps fatally shot, a happy family broken up  and a promising young business man  charged with attempted murder, is the  painful story The Herald has to tell  in consequence of events which occurred in a few short minutes on Saturday.  Shortly after 5 o'clock on Saturday  rumors began flying around that  George Gouin was seriously injured.  It was said by some tliat he had been  thrown out of a rig, by others that a  gun he was cleaning had accidentally  gone off and lodged its contents in  his breast. Crowds began to collect  and rumors flew fast, some even hinting at murder or suicide. Toward 6  o'clock two armed Mounted Policemen came up Stephen Avenue at a  rapid trot. Inspector Wilson, who  was on thc sidewalk near The Herald  ollice, stopped them and after receiving a whispered message jumped into  his rig and left in great haste toward  lho Macleod  trail.  Then the rumors thickened. Half  an hour previously Chief English and  seen  AN APPEAL TO BOREAS  (Written  During    tho Recent Yacht  Races.

Undertaker   Smart    had    been  driving south at a 2:40 gait.  "They're after Harris," said a bystander. "Gouin is shot in three  places and the police aro searching  for Harris."  Everybody was asking questions.  Where did it happen? Was it in  Gouin's room? Was Mrs. Harris  there? A Herald representative went  quietly to work to gather what reliable details could be secuied, his instructions being to write the story exactly as it happened, according'to the  best evidence obtainable. The details were telegraphed to the Winnipeg Free Press on Saturday-  night ' by its regular correspondent  here and during Sunday requests for  "specials" came in from many leading  dailies in the east and through tho  States. Nothing remains therefore  but for The Herald to publish, the  facts, without prejudice and with  sympathetic consideration for the  feelings of the relatives of the parties.  The Prologue.  Dining the summer there came to  Calgary a happy young couple who  put up at the Alberta hotel and afterwards took rooms in the Thomson  uiock, still having their meals at thc  Alberta. The young people were Mr.  and Mrs. E. A. Harris, of Moncton,  New Brunswick. They had been  married less than two years. Mrs.  Harris, who is pretty, petite*' and not  much over 19, is a" daughter of F. S.  Archibald, a prominent citizen of  Moncton, who under the Conservative  government held the office of Chief  Engineer of the Intercolonial railway.  Mr. Harris is a son of C. P. Harris,  ,i well known .capitalist of Moncton.  His brother is practising law in that  town.  Making the acquaintance o������ George  Gouin, auctioneer. and commission  agent, Harris soon formed a partnership with that gentleman and an extensive business was being worked up  in purchasing hay, oats and other  produce in wholetale ��������� quantities for  the Kootenay.  Gouin's bachelor apartments were  in" tho samo block, they ate at the  same hotel and they were friends and  partners. Naturally     under      the  circumstances the three were much in  each other's company, being frequently together at golf parties and other  social functions.  The Tragedy.  On Saturday Mr. Harris drove out  about 3 o'clock to a pigeon shoot at  the Calgary'Gun club 's grounds. Returning about 4 he drove to Mrs.  Johnson's and Mrs. Marsh's and enquired i������ Mrs. Harris was there.  Not finding her at eiher place he  drove to the Thomson block. It is  said that from the rear of the block  he could see the blinds, or curtains,  drawn on Gouin's windows.  Leaving his horse untied in front  of the block he .went up to his own  room and from the front window called to somebody across the street to  'KoiaT^iiSfse'rwbiblrw^csr-wBi'irfng-ofi-  He believed his suspicions were but  too well grounded. He remained in  his room for a considerable time and  from what he heard through the open  door he was convinced   that   his wife  mnn ii      i   m     ii   i  l.u ii ���������.���������������.ii_i_ni__t__r-n  fugitive,  a number of Indians    also  beinc called in to assist.     A warrant  was issued shortly after 7 o'clock on  Saturday  evening for his arrest on a  charge of shooting with intent to kill.  Mrs. Harris Under Bonds.  Mrs. Harris, when seen by the police,  stated  that    tho shooting    took  place in  Gouin's room, that she  and  her husband were present, but would  not say who did tho shooting.      She  was taken in charge and bound over  to appear when called upon.  Harris Released on Bail.  This morning Harris appeared  before Magistrate Winter for liis preliminary hearing. A. L. Sifton appeared for the Crown and Senator  Lougheed for the defendant.  No evidence was taken.  Mr. Sifton applied for an adjournment to Monday next at 2 o'clock, as  Gouin still lies in a precarious condition.  Senator Lougheed applied for the  release of his client on bail, which  was granted.  Harris was released on bonds of  $4,000, himself in $2,000 and I. S. G.  Van Wart and* H. Graves in $1,000  each.  His father, C. P. Harris, is expected  to arrive from the east on Wednesday.  Gouin's Condition  Upon examination the doctors found  tho bullet had perforated the Injured  man's intestines in nine places, lodging near the spine. Tho long nnd  difficult operation of sewing up the  nine internal wounds was performed,  the bullet boing left in for the prcs-  cnt���������_nd at last accounts the patient's  condition, though critical, was far  more favorable than might he expected. He retains consciousness and  at 1 o'clock Sunday morning made an  ante-mortem statement before Insp.  Wilson. J.P.  WHITE.   GWILLIM   & SCOTT  Barristers,  Solicitors, Notaries Public.  Etc.

REAL ESTATE  MINING-  AND    ���������  INSURANCE  AGENT'' '  Benzie  Ave,  fcM_i_������,ll������A������,5g'HRi^^  A SUICIDE.  A Former High River Stockman Blows  liis  Brains Out.  From tho Calgary Herald  News was received in the citv this  morning that Dave Bryant, well known  in this district, committed suicide on  Saturday, October" 2Sth, by shooting  himself through the head with a revolver. The unfortunate affair occurred at Greenwood, in the Boundary  district. So far as is * known ' here  there was no apparent cause for his  act.  Bryant was in the mining business  in the Boundary and was 'handling  some " claims in .which local parties  were interested. For a considerable  time he was. looking after mining  interests for Jno. E. Hooper, formerly  of Calgary. He" was a popular stock  man and a good cowboy. Among his  fellow cow punchers he was known as  "The Cook Killer," from his invariable  habit of playfully scrapping with the  cook "on round-up ' expeditions.

The situation is still hopeful and the accounts  that continuously arrive regarding  the fighting at Farqubar's farm only  confirm its serious natuio and thc  narrow escape General Whito had,   o   MORE  HEAVY   BOER  GUNS  ���������Lr  London, Nov. 4.���������The Daily Mail  publishes the following despatch from  Ladysmith dated Wednesday morning.  Matters today are quiet, the Boers  apparently mounting more heavy-  guns to the north and northwest,  which are likely to give us trouble.  The Boer contingent is 15,000 strong  and is clearly visible from the camp,  streaming away to the south. -The  inhabitants of Ladysmith continue to  leave the   town.  The Paris correspondent of the  Daily Mail says: ' I learn that the  Transvaal and Orange Free State governments before the war placed  large orders with gun makers at Le-  creusot, but that not all the weapons  ordered will be delivered owingto the  suddenness with which hostilities  began. The " guns the Boers  are actually using-are 75-millimetre  quick firing guns and 153 millimetre  siege and garrison guns, all mounted  on light canages, adapted in every  possiblc way for use on muddy-  trails. They had two months'* steady  firing practice under competent crcu-  sot agents. If they could have had  another months' practice no Euro-'  pean artillery could have withstood  them.  White's retreat upon Ladysmith is  the number of men captured apart  from the members of the Gloucester  regiment and Irish Fusiliers, who  were taken prisoners.  "The list of casualties among ths  commisioucd officers and men at  Farqubar's farm shows' that the  Gloucesters lost 30 killed and 51  wounded; and the 10th mountain  battery two wounded 'before they  surrendered. Tho captured, who are  given under tho heading of missing,  are divided as follows: Gloucesters  19 ofilcers and 33 men; 10th mountain- battery   five ollicers and St men.  EUROPEAN COALITION  SECOND  CANADIAN  CONTINGENT  Ottawa, Nov. 4.'���������The Canadian government has riot received any definite  reply to the, offer forwarded to the  Imperial authorities to send a second  ��������� contimgent to assist Her Majesty's  forces in the Transvaal.  Rendered    Impossible   owing   to   the  Loyal Friendship of.the United  States  London, Nov. 4.���������Rumors of the  continental anti-British coalition still  continues to occupy the French  papers. Referring to the alleged  Anglo-American understandtng.said to  be the outcome of the Spanish war,  The Figaro says that the Washington  cabinet has been convinced that' had  it not been for the action of Great  Britain tho McKinley administration would have had to face a European coalition in Spain's behalf. To  deprive the United States of the fruits  of victory the English played so well  on this string that at the present moment if Europe did not remain  in a situation of strict neutrality it  would not be long before the United  States fleet showed its flag on the  eastern and southern coasts of Africa.  This is tho Kaiser's nightmare and it  will be used as the argument in favor  of the increase in the German navy.  The English hope that the increase  may he made with a view of the conclusion of the alliance between the  United States and Germany.  BRITISH PLANS  BRAVE   CAVALRYMEN  For  the   Relief   of   Kimberley  Invasion of the Orange Free  State.    -  and  . London, Nov. 3.���������Despite the   strict  - censorship concerning .the - government's troops in South ,Africa it is  evident that a strong column is forming at Deaar Junction for the, relief  of Kimberley. The First Fusiliers,  Second Berkshires and half of the  Second Yorkshire Light Infantry,are  "known to be there, numbering 2,000 in  all. The Muusters have been converted into a mounted infantry. It was  originally intended to send the entire  army corps to this point, but "the  critical position of the British forces  in Natal necesitates the diverging of  reinforcements as soon as they arrive at Cape Town. The government,  hoped-that Gen. White would be able  to hold the Boers in check in Natal  long enough for the army corps to  arrive and make a dashing invasion  of the Orange Free State and thence  into the Transvaal, but all these plans  are upset now. Under the conditions  some of the troops must be spared to  help Kimberley. Lord .Salisbury is  anxious about his son Max, and every  effort will be made to , help the two  beleagured towns as soon as possible  Afrikanders Are Loyal. , ,  London,  Nov.  4.���������The Cape    Town  ^correspondent-of-the-Daily-Chronicle  savs there  is not tbe slightest indication here ��������� of  any Afrikander    dis  loyalty there.-  General .Buller at Cape Town.  Cape Town, Nov. 4.���������Lieutenant  General Buller is still here and it is  not likely that he will leave for a  few days. It is rumored that martial  law will shortly be proclaimed-*in  Cape Town.  Kimberley Still Safe.  Orange River Colony, Nov .4.���������The  '   camp of Kimberley is still safe and  the wounded are doing well.  It now appears as, if it were only  the arrival of the Naval contingent  from the Powerful which prevented  a more serious disaster. _ It is now-  known that when it was seen' that  retirement was imperatlye.two- Natal  cavalrymen volunteered to convey a  despatch across the Boer lines ' to  Major Ady, ordering him to retire,  but tho risk was - considered too  gtjeat and flag signalling was em?  ployed.     ' "' '  The- distance - was -too great and  the ground too rough for the cavalry  to go to his assistance.  According to despatches .filed on  Tuesday, defensive works were being  constructed on the -hills around  Ladysmith and it is expected that the  big naval guns would be mounted the  following day.  35   BATTALIONS   WILL   MOBILIZE  ' London, Nov. 4.���������An army order  issued this evening instructs the  proper authorities to mobilize 35  battalions of militia at their respective headquarters on various dates  after November 20.  ANTICIPATING   ENGLISH   PLANS  Boer'  Army, Will   Isolate   Ladysmith  and then Capture Durban  London, Nov. 5.���������The * Standard  publishes a despatch from Luxemburg, which 'says: "Until within.a  very few"days Dr.Leyds has .been in  -telegrap_ic-communication-=w:itli-Pre--  toria through an indirect diplomatic  channel, by means of which he was  able to supply'the Transvaal with the  supposed British plan to advance  through the Orange Free State. With  a view of anticipating this move-"  ment, the Boers will endeavor to  capture or isolate Ladysmith, and  then to press on to Durban, where  they would he - able to oprevent the  British landing, while the main Boer  army would hastily retrace its steps  to- defend the line of the Orange  River."   "-,   "  -  f  o   SECOND "CANADIAN CONTINGENT  CRITICIZED BY GERMANY  Carbineers and the Natal Border  Rifles started under General French  at sunrise and got within striking distance before the enemy was aware of  their presence. The field battery accompanying the expedition secured a  good position commanding the enemy's  camp, which was a large one, at tho  Laager with army wagons and other  vehicles. Bester Hill was well fortified and provided with good guns.  At 9 o'clock the British opened flre,  the Boers replying with spirit but bad  aim. The British quickly sent a 42  pound shell into the camp, inflicting  terrible loss and spreading panic  among the enemy. Our cavalry then  stormed the position, the Boers fleeing precipitately -and leaving many-  dead and wounded, as woll as the  whole camp and equipment in the  hands of the British. This success  will upset the plans of the Orange  Free State commanders and will probably prevent them from giving the  British any further trouble from the  west.  SANGUINARY BATTLE  A despatch from Natal says that the  Dutch residents have received news of  a sanguinary battle fought yesterday,  probably between Ladysmith and Colenso. A large number of Boers were  killed, many of whom were relatives  of the Natal Dutch residing in this  place. The English residents have  no knowledge of any engagement. The  correspondent of the Times at Ladysmith confirms the report of tho artillery exchanges. He says: "The  Investment of the town is novv practically complete. Last night the  onemy tapped the wires in our rear.  He can therefore cut oft communication whenever he pleases. It is  suggested therefore that the Boers  believe that Ladysmitli is in their  power and that they are therefore  anxious to have us get up all our  military stores before they attack us.  Defeat of Free Staters.  A reconnaisance by the Lancers and  a flold battery today found a Free  State laager, which the British shelled heavily, driving the Boers out. Tlie  general belief in London is that the  Boers are now waiting for more guns  from Pretoria before attacking Ladysmith. The fact that Buller appears  to have ordered the retirement from  Stormberg and perhaps from other  places relieves to some extent- the  public mind wliich otherwise would  have been further alarmed.  LORD BERESF0RD SPEAKS  FRENCH GOVERNMENT  Has Issued Letters of Marque.  Paris, Nov. C.���������Le Temps says:  "There is an immense fleet of transports now at sea carrying troops to  the Transvaal. . The government  cannot seriously threaten these, but  there is no doubt that it has issued  letters of marque in Europe and thc  United States and British commerce  may suffer even if the transports do  not."

Loudon, Nov. 7.���������Rear Admiral Lord  Charles lieresford speaking at Sunderland last night conlessed that he regarded with great apprehension what  might be the attitude of the Blacks  towards the vanquished when the  British had conquered the Uoers. "I  must repeat," said Lord Chanes, "that  in view of such a contingency the  government is not sending out even  sufficient troops as to avoid the possibility of foreign intervention. I  consider that the great naval, military  and financial resources of the Empire were calculated to ward off any  undue European dictation.  LADYSMITH STII1 SAFE  London, Nov. 7.���������The war __ office  stated at midnight that no despatches  have been received beyond those al-  read made public and that nothing  further will be heard before noon today. Thus not a solitary oilicial item  of news has been posted lor nearly  48 hours. This has given rise to a  crop of rumors that Ladysmith's  ammunition is exhausted, that General White has been mortally wounded and that other unlucky, happenings have taken place. For all theso  reports ther is absolutely no foundation. At the same time tho Britisher has had little to stimulate him  within the last 21 hours except tho  news of the  Confident Attitude  ot the Ladysmith garrison and its  successes last Thursday and Friday.  Advices from othur parts of South  Africa arc distinctly unpalatable.  Everything points a critical situation  in Natal and the Northern portions  of the Cape Colony wliich is likely to  grow more acute until General White  is either relieved or decisively defeats the Boers.  Nobody' Dares Think  of Capitulation. Rather than that he  is expected as a last resort if Ladysmith becomes untenable, to make a  desperate elfort to cut : his way  through the Boers and get back into  lower Natal and join hands with the  garrison there which is now almost  certain  _   To be Reinforced  by the first arrivals of the army corps  from England to be pressed forward  to be in touch with him.  lt is generally assumed however,  that General White, with the aid of  the naval guns will be' able to cope  with any bombardment and the idea  that the Boers could take Ladysmith  by  assault is  Scouted as, Absurd  The defence then depends on the uninterrupted working of the naval  guns.- Here arises an important  question upon which the despatches  havo thrown little light. Whether the  maval guns.which ; themselves only  arrived*- at the last moment, have  with them  Sufficient Ammunition  to reply to the bombardment lasting  possiuly several weeks. If not it is  nardly likely that ,works exist m a  smau town like ladysmith for the  casting of the- special shells needed  tor 4.7 guns .and moreover there is  no mention of any, enures of lyddite  at Ladysmith for recharging these  shells. - Meanwhile vague remarks  in the despatches point to the impending arrival ot further big Boer  guns irom Johannesburg to be .mounted/ along the' hills within range of  Ladysmith. ' Such considerations explain the anxiety felt regarding General White's, movements and position,  not only by .public and business'men  but in official  circles.       , ���������*���������  The British Retirement  .' - s  to Estcourt has given the impression  ,that it is intended to make a stand  there. Estcourt is the last important  town between the Boers and the capital-of Natal and it the Boers sweep  past Estcourt nothing can stop them  from-lay in siege to Pietermaritzburg  which cannot" be expected tomake a  protracted defence,' while its fall  would be a tremendous blow to British prestige throughout South Africa.  OFFICERS FOR THE FRONT  Press ������Says the Army System Should  be Re-Organized  Berlin, ������?ov. 3.���������The statement of  the Britis'b secretary for war, Lord  Landsdowne-, at the Cutlers* feast at  Sheffield yesterday, that the military  preparations in the difficulty with  the Transvaal could not be kept  abreast of the diplomatic negotiations, has evoked severe comment  on the part of the German press.  The Neustre Nachrichten says: 'This  assertion will amaze the world, and  especially Germany, for -it implies  that the army and diplomacy of Great  Britain are unevenly balanced, or  that both are Inefficient; For the  purposes of comparisons, we need but  to recall Germany's preparedness in  1870, and the fact that Count Von  Moltke, on the first day of the mobilization, was found reading , a novel.  Lord Lansdowne's statement only  conflrmsi tho opinion of numerous  critics. -Porhaps England's experi-  onco in South Africa will sufflco to  bring homo tho national Instinct of  Britons, tho necessity for a radical  reorganization at the- British military system." o   o   .REVISED LIST OF CASUALTIES  Ottawa, Nov. 6.���������The offer- of a  second" Canadian contingent by the  government has not yet been accepted.

' Our troops  are ln good health and spirits and  the wounded are doing well. General .Touhert sent In Major Kincaid,  of tho Royal Irish Fusiliers, and nine  wounded prisoners.

News hour by hour is eagerly, watched for and the speeches of  the deputies in the states general are  constantly interrupted as the rumors  of despatches come in. All the  Dutch newspaper offices are flying the  Transvaal flag. According to an undated despatch received here from  Ladysmith the body of General Jan  Kock, the Boer commander, who was  wounded at the battle of Glencoe and  has since died, has been taken to  Pretoria.

London, Nov. 7.���������The Daily Mail has  received the following despatch from  Stormberg, dated Friday evening:  An-^ Orange Free State force, 2,000  strong, is now at Piwonz's farm, half  ���������way-between-the-Orange-river-and-the'  Burghers. The Boers arc awaiting  there for the arrival of 3,000 reinforcements from Rouxville and Bloemfon-  tein before  Moving on Stormberg.- -  There is a third Free State* force at  Cobburg. Signalling in the Boer  camp was plainly-visible from here  last night. Stormberg is understood  to be the depot where tho stores, tents,  guns and ammunition and all the  commissariat details of the third division that under General Gatacred  were in. process of accumulation. The  stores have been removed to Queens-  town and the obvious explanation of  their removal arises out of the Boer  advance from Bothule and Alival  Nortli.  In view of thc near approach of the  British reinforcements  A Boer Invasion  of Cape Colony could hardly be regarded very seriously. There may  therefore be another reason for the  withdrawal and the stores destined by  repute for Queenstown may be intended for East London or Durban. It  may be General Buller's intention to  send on Colonel Lord Methuns' division, composed of the Guards and  other British brigades, to the immediate assistance of Natal. For the use  of that division a diversion may be  intended of some of the stores" of the  third division, which are in tho handiest position to be forwarded. The  reports that Rosemeand and Naaunw-  poort are also to be evacuated seem  to corroborate the idea that General  Bulletfs first business will be to relieve  ���������White.  ' 'i  Cecil Rhodes Believes That They  Have Been.Found. ^  "And King Solomon made a navy  of ships in Ezion-Geber, which is  beside Eloth, on the shores of the Red  Sea, in the tend of Edoni.  "And they came ,to Ophir, and  fetched from thence gold, 420 talents,  and brought it to King Solomon."  And it is said further-that this navy  of Hiram came once in three years  with gold and silver, apes" and ivory  and peacocks. -  And ever since then men have  dreamed of the lost mines of Ophir.  Gold and silver, ivory and apes can  be found in Indian and Africa. So  students have settled on one of these  two lands as containing the lost-treasure houses of tho earth. ,. Others  maintain that the land-of Ophir was  in Arabia. "->  But Africa is the favorite place now,  and"' so hard headed and unvisionary  a man as Cecil Rhodes believes not  only that the mines are'on that continent, but that he has reason to feel  assured that their location has been  established almost exactly, at least  exactly 'enough to make it possible to  find them. In a communication which  he has just made to the shareholders  of the Chartered company he asserts  that the ancient mines are situated on  the southern aflluents of tho Zambesi  river, and that their rediscovery is  under way of being made a fact.

Eleven Thousand Boers Versus Seven  Thousand British.  London, Nov. 7.���������It Is believed that  the Orange Free State commanders  now have  Eleven Thousand Men  concentrated against Kimberley and  on the Free State southern frontier.  Opposed to them are only 7,000 British troops. The towns which He open  to their attack are Alival Nortli,  Burghersdorp, Steynberg, Barkly and  Molteno.  coming revelations of ,vast, interest  The report comes from an exploring  party under Dr. Carl Peters, and is to  tho effect that the Macombi's country,  which is in South Zambesi, that part  of British South Africa known under  the general title of Rhodesia that he  has discovered a huge mountain, on  which there stands mighty and ancient  ruins of a character identical .with  those discovered in Zimbabye. ��������� All  the .Indications, according to tho short  report,' aro that they, belong to a set-  ��������� tlement of miners and assayers, there  having been found enough evidences  of their work to warrant such a conclusion as to the profession of theso  forgotten inhabitants of inner Africa.  Now it has heen 'fairly woll established, as far as theory, aided by careful  study and knowledge could do it, that  tho inhabitants of Zimbabye were  miners who worked for Solomon, and  as theso newly found ruinB are identical with them in character they furnish additional testimony in support  of tho belief that the world is on tho  track of King Solomon's famous mines  at last.  In his report Dr. Peters refers to  the old tradition that halt a day's  journey from the river Mansoro is a  fort named Massapa; and that near  this is the "great mountain of Fura,  very rich in gold, and that thero are  peoplo who say that the name of  'Fura' is a corruption of tho name of  Ophir."    - J  Dr. Peters started on his expedition  quietly in the end ot April. At the  time his trip was dismlsesd without  much talk as being merely 'one of the  many lesser exploring enterprises.  His second in command Is Captain  George Silver, who commanded in the  famous Black Watch till recently,  when he was relieved to take part in  the romantic quest. Many mining experts accompany tbe expedition which  Is escorted by native Somalis.  The expedition was carefully and  lavishly equipped. The start Into the  Interior was made through Portuguese territory, the port of Chlndi  being selected as the most convenient.  A stern wheel steamer, like those  which wen*- used with such good effect  on the Nile in tho Kitchener campaign, was used to transport the party  to thc upper reaches of Zambesi  which were reached about a month  ago.  . application to  E BUKER, Local Agent,  FERGUSON TOWNSITE  IMPERIAL   .-iNK,   OF CANADA  .
