A careful investigation will provo every claim we  make for our Chinaware.  Union Made Goods  Are handled hy us.     Union men please note.  The legitimate influence of the new  Trade and Labor Assembly will he  grievously impaired if ninny more  resolutions are passed nt it, such as  was the one relating to the assumed  discrimination in the purchase of  lumber for the city sidewalks. Its  only object could be to assert the  claims of one of their membeis. The  only interest of this gentleman in the  sale of lumber is a small commission  paid him as the agent of an outside  corporation. The board of works  consider, and riglilly &o, that the  money of the ratepayers should be  spent nt home with our own- mill, one  of the largest industries in the town,  and one which has a monthly pay mil  running well into the thousands, every  cent of which is spent in tovvn. The  assembly surely does not exist for-the  purpose of championing such poor  causes as this simply because oneof  their own members is the party  affected.  s The introduction of cheap Italian  labor from the States into the Slocan  is an act on tlie part of the mine  owners' association wliich cannot" be  tolerated, as being in, the lirst place  against the law, as they have been  brought in under contract, contrary to  the provisions of the alien labor act,  secondly as being against the interests  of this entire community, which reaps  its chief benefit from the ruining operations going on in the country from  the wages earned hy the miners and  spent right at honie. The money expended ' for inining machinery and  very often for supplies by these bi|{  companies is spent outside of Kootenay altogether, while it is Unnecessary  to add that very few of the dividend-  sharers spend their" income in this  country. In consequence it is of vital  importance to all of us Unit the miners  should get as high wages us they,  possibly can." As .far as .the general  prosperity is cioiici'"rnecl''the- mines  might us well be lying idle as run by  Italian labor.

With such a prospect in view Lord  Minto may well feel uneasy at the  contemplation of the very shifty and  dubious loyalty to the Empire entertained by n niinisterso powerful among  the French-Canadian population of  the Dominion as Mr. Tarte. And he  may very vvi.-Il have intended toconvey  a hint, of his dissatisfaction and n  warning of danger to the Dominion at  large.  give  used  .   No  Mr.  Such u consideration may well  us pause. It is no matter to be  for party profit or political gain,  one supposes that Dr. Borden or  Mulock for instance weie not as eager  as anybody to see the contingent sail.  The former minister deserves the  highest praise for the manner iu  which his department took hold of  and cairietl out wilhout a hitch thc  hurried despatcli of our Royal Canadian Regiment. No one supposes but  that, there is a gootl majority on both  sides of politics in Quebec, who are  loyal to the Empire and just as enthusiastic as the rest of their fellow  countrymen over the striking proof  which Canada lias afforded to the  world of its solidarity. But the fat t  remains that theie is a faction in  Quebec who did not want the contingent to go and that a minister of  the Crown is at tlie head of it and in  fact relied on his pull with his compatriots to prevent its going altogether.  He failed because he had miscalculated his strength, but he is still in  oflice and just as capable and leady  for mischief as hefore. The position  is not a pleasant one for loyal Canadians to contemplate.  BAYONETS CLEARED THE HILLS  On the contrary it was not Sir  Chailes Tupper's scheme of insurance  for the Canadian contingent -which  fell through. It is the government  which has failed t.o carry its negotiations through. - The amount, $100,-  000, asked by the Standard Company  staggered llie government, which  decided not to accept the offer, hut  made an alternative proposal ��������� which  the company in turn rejected.  When Lord 'Minto, speaking at  Montreal on Wednesday last, lifted  for a moment the curtain which  screens the deliberations of tlieCnbinet  from the eyes of the public,' his action  vvas too nriii3ii.il and significant not tu  hnve had some object..' He. told the  people of Ciiiiiid.-i-thnt the.Canadian  contingent was going, out t to the  Transvaal, because they 'insisted on  its going and that he was' very glad  that they did insist.. In other words  there {was opposition in the Cabinet  tn its going at all, and it "won only the  tremendous public .agitation that so  strengthened the hands of those  cabinet ministers who supported the  sending of the detachment as to compel the dissentients, to yield. The  News-Advertiser sums his excellency's  meaning up in one sentence.     It says:  " Lord Minto plainly declared that  only the voice of a vast majority of  tumidly patriotic Canadians, demand-  inj. that they be allowed to take their  part in n grc._t.rliiipcri.il contest pie-  venU'd the smallest, mimleil and prob  ably only Ihoioiighly anli-Biitish  member of lhe present Dominion  ministry���������ono.

Brown's suggestion" and issue debentures for the remaining $10,000 of the  $25,000, wliich they are empowered to  borrow. . It is quite obvious that as it  is there is not enough money'available  for such necessary works as the fire  h.tlUmd. fire alarm system. But be-  'sides these there is a lot of work  which .calls for undertaking. -There  is one street, if not more,..in the east  end, both sides of which private enterprise has lined with handsome residences, which is not. even graded. The  streets, which are graded, require a  lot more gravelling. And"' in the  opinion of the Hkrald the construction of sidewalks should be pushed  along lo follow private improvements.  These things have ail got to be done  sooner or later and there seems to be  no particular object in lengthening  nut the discomfort of lhe ratepayers  by postponing the .work. If the  present council cannot expend the  whnlep amount they can surely  trust their successors to do so vvith  wisdom and economy. Novv is the  very time to do the gravelling and the  sidewalks will never be woise needed  than they vvill be next spring. The  council should resolve to issue the  necessary debentures at their next  meeting nnd'give orders for tlie work  to stmt at once.

Bnt   surely   Lord   Minto  meant-to  convey something more to his hearers  that, the mere statement of this fart  which   only    substantiates   oflicially  vvhat everybody knew   before,  except  the " deaf adders " of  the  Grit reptile  press.   The   motive   must  have   been  stronger than this which led the representative of  the  Ciown  to depart so  far from all  the  unwritten  laws and  traditions of his oflice.      And it is not  very difiicult to surmise that he meant  to convey a very grave warning to his  audience and the Canadian people at  large, a warning of danger.   No one  can forsee what the ultimate result of  this   Transvaal   affair will  be.      The  extraordinarily extensive preparations  hoth     naval   and    military, actively  going all over the Empire are sufficient  proof that the Imperial Cabinet is of  the   opinion   that   the   most   serious  contingencies  are  among   the possibilities of the near future.   There is no  use disguising the fact that the soldiers  of tbe Dominion may shortly be called  ' The Lardeau Railway.  W. M. Brayton, general agent for  the Ferguson town<.ile was in town on  Monday.

[srEriAL D_sr_Tcn to' the kf.__i.d.J '  London, Nov. 7.���������Although there is'  but scanty intelligence from tin; front.'  it is generally believed that the  fight-',  ing outside of Lidysmilli on Thursday  and Friday last was more severe than  is   indicated   by   the   official   report:  There is  no   longer   a   disposition   to,-������  jump at tlle conclusion that a crushing  blow has been inflicted on  the  Boers.,  but the mere fact that General ' White!  was able to take under a plan of recon-  naisanees is taken asan indication^ that  the grip of the  Boer  investment' has      -  been relaxed  by the  withdrawal' of apportion   of General   Jouhert's   forces    -  southward.     While, however, anxiety  in regard to immediate stress of Ladysmith i.s alleviated, there  is  fear  that  the   authorities   are   blundering' aud  may find too late that the main  expedition will prove too weak to complete'  the task with safety and despatch  as.  the Natal force has already admittedly,  failed to perform  what w������3 expected,."  of  it.

In justice to General White it  should be remembered that apart from  the fact that he was fighting against  terrible odds, he was also the victim  of adverse circumstances. The stampeding of his mules with his ammunition Teserve left his men pracli-  callv unarmed, as all their ammunition had been shot away by 3 o'clock  in the   afternoon    of  the   fatal   day.  This was a circumstance which  might have happened to the ablest of  generals, and one that could not be  foreseen. General White has a good  record as a soldier, and his explanation o������ the capture of the British  regiments at Ladysmith clears up a  good deal of what at first sight appeared to he a most unaccountable  error of judgment-  Have   Cut   off   the   Mask- Contempt  Poured upon Great Brilain���������To  Expel Her from South Africa.  The London Times publishes the  following curious letter, which il prefaces with a very guarded introduction. Letter and introduction are as  follows:  Wo have received the following  letter, appropriately, headed "Boer  Ignorance." The writer bears a well  known Dule'u name, and gives as his  late address lhc name of n well  known town in a, Dutch district of  Capo Colony:  Sir: In your paper you liave often  commented on whnl you are pleased  to call the ignorance of my countrymen, iho Boers.

The premier, in his Ontario tour,  and in his letters replying to Sir  Charles Tupper, is trying to make it  appear that he has done all that the  home government permitted, while  Mr; Tarte informs the people of Quebec that the Canadian government has  only done what the home government  demanded in reference to the spending  of a Canadian contingent to tlio  Transvaal.       ,  When Sir Charles Tupper suggested  that Canada should pay them as a  Canadian corps, and not as British regulars, * Sir Wilfrid sends him Air.  ' Chamberlain's-despatch accepting the  Canadian troops lo be incorporated  wilh regulars and paid as such by the  home government. The premier adds  that he does not think it his duty to  be more loyal than thc_ queen and  British government.  This is deceptive. The despatch  which Sir Wilfrid quotes was not Air.  Chamberlain-s reply to the Canadian  government's offer of a, corps for  South Africa. He had no chance, to  replv to such an offer, for none hatl  been made. Alv. Chamberlain's despatch was sent on the 4tli of this  month in reply to a message from the  Canadian government stating that certain Canadian officers were prepared  to raise volunteers for service in Africa. The Canadian government had  lhen offered nothing, not even, equipment. In reply to ihis Air. Chamberlain sent a despatch, informing the  government at Ottawa, on what eou-  > itions these volunteers, raised by individual enterprise, would be received  into the imperial army.  Sir Wilfrid has epioted tliis letter  as if it were a reply to his own offer  of a corps, and as if it laid down conditions on which alone a force sent  out by the Canadian government would  be  received.  " Air. Chamberlain and the war oflice  did not refuse to accept a contingent  to go.to Africa and serve as a Canadian corps. They could not. because  it had not been offered.  They  did not refuse to allow Canada io provide pay for her own s-ol-  __-diers_���������JThev could not do so because  it had not been offered.  It was not until Qciober 13th. near-  lv a fortnight after Air. Chamberlain  had accepted the offer of units to be  raised by independent effort, and had  given instructions as to organization.  ���������*"������������������ the Canadian government offered  a corps of 1.000 men. " This offer wis  promptly accepted.but the premier hit1"  gone about reading Air. Chamberlain's  renly to ihe Canadian independent  volunteers, as if it were the reply to  the Government offer, which was mail"  nine days after the .despatch vvas received.   o   The encasement of Admiral Dewey  to Mrs. Hagen, of Washington, Is announced.  A Philadelphia shipyard has just  completed one of the fastest cruisers  afloat for Russia. ,.  Sir Charles Tupper and olher Conservative leaders addressed a meeting  in Ottawa on Tuesday.  Preparations, are in progress at  Windsor Castle lo welcome Kmperor  William on November 23th.  Sir Henry Irving and company had  a splendid opening night in New-  York in Sardon's "Robespierre."  A party of 00 English and Scotch  newspaper men will visit Canada to  inquire into pulp wood resources.  Buffalo grain men are alarmed at  the probable divergence of u-s-.l-  through'the canal routes of Canada,  instead of the Erie canal.  A despatch from Alafeking says the  Boers bombarded the town for four  hours on October 24th and only  succeeded in. killing a dog.  H. A. Conroy. of Alexandria. Out.,  has been appointed land agent for  the new territory in Athabasca and  the .Peace river, recently secured by a  commission.  Two editors in London to whom  Air. W. T. Stead sent his pamphlet:  "Shall I Slay Aly Brother Boer?'- replied as follows: "What on earth  have I to do -with your family affairs?" "By all means if be insists  on it." But it's hard to nonplus Stead;  he has no sense of humor.  Toronto Globe: J. C. Whitehead,  who has been in the employ of the  Monsoon Tea Company, goes with thc  Highlanders to flght the Boers. The  Monsoon Tea Company have pener-  ouslv placed a policy on his life for  $1,000. They also hold his situation  and pay part of his salary when he  returns.  wo know the fuels.  1. The actual value of gold in tiie  Transvaal is at least 2uU,0uU million."  of pounds,-.and this fact is as well  known to tho Emperor of German:"  and Russia as it is to us. You estimate tho value of the gold at only  700 millions of pounds, or al least,  lhat is what- you pretend io estimate  it at. But Germany, Russia and  France do nol desire you to get possession of- this vast mass of gold, and  so, after encouraging you to believe  that they will uot interfere in South  Africa, they will certainly do so, and  very easily find a casus belli, and thoy  vvill assist us directly and indirectly  to drive you out of Africa.  2. AVe know- that yon dare not. take  any precautions in advance to prevent  the onslaught of the gieat powers, a'3  the Opposition, the great peace party,  vvill raise tho question ol" expense,  and this will win over your lazy, dirty, drunken working classes, who will  never again permit themselves lo bo  taxed to support your empire, or ovon  to preserve your existence as a nation.  3. Wo know from all ihe military  authorities of lhe European and American continents that you exist as an  Independent power merely on sulfer-  anee, and that at. any moment the  great Emperor AVilliam can urransu  with France or Russia to wipe you  off the face of the earth. They can  at any time starvo you into surrender.  You must yield in till things to the  United States also, or your supply of  corn will be so reduced by lhe Americans that your working classes would  be compelled to pay high prices for  their food, and rather than do that  they would have civil war and invite  anv foreign power to assist them hy  invasion, for there is no patriotism in  the working classes ot England. Ireland or AVales. -���������  ���������1. AVe know that.youi* country has  been more prosperous than any other  country during the last 50 years (you  have had no civil war liko iho Americans and French to tone up yonr  nerves and strengthen your manliness), and consequently your ablo  bodied men will not enlist in your  so-called volunteer army. Therefore  vou have to hire lhe dregs of your  population to do your fiahtlng. and  thev are deficient in physique'.' in  moral and mental ability, and in all  the qualities lhat make good fighting  men.  ii. Your military ollicers wc know to  be merely pedantic scholars or frivolous society men. without anv cupacity  for practical warfare with ' white  men. Tho Afridis were more than a  match for you, and your victory over  the Sudanese was achieved because  those poor people had not a rifle  amongst them.  0. AVe know that your men, hem?  the dregs of your people, are naturally feeble, and that thoy are also saturated with the most horrible diseases, as all your government return?  plainly   shovv,_;ind .thai   I hey   cannot  man Who Hade  South  Africa-  Dreams  of tho  Future  Cecil Rhodes was formerly Premier  of Capo Colony,  and  is certainly the  most prominent and powerful man in  Soulli  Africa.    Ho  is    likewise    the  waltliicsl man in that section. Ho has  achieved  that placo  in  2c years.    In  1S73 ho left Oxford because of a serious lung trouble. He is the youngest  son or an English church clergyman,  and .was born at Bishop's,  Stratford,  on  July  5,  1853.     He   did   not  go   to  South Africa to   seek   diamonds,   but  because physicians ordered a chango.  lie continued his studies whilo living  in Natal, and returned to Oxford each  vear,   until   ho   look   his   degree     at  Oriel college.    It is hardly  loo much  to  sny that Air.   Rhodes    has    made  bis fortune   in   diamonds.     Diamonds  hnd  lieen  discovered in South Africa  it fevv years boforo he got there. Finally    lie   caught   thc   fever,   and     it  was not long before he hail slaked all  he had in  a  few   claims.     Tlioso   ho  shared with his brother Herbert, who  later   relinquished     liis     share     and  wont north, where ho met his death  while hunting elephants.    Cecil plodded away in the diamond Holds/where  ho superintended his gang of Kaflirs.  Ho was very successful  in his ventures, and  il was not    long    beforo he  found   himself   thc  possessor of some  ������1,000.000.       He  was   eiecled to  the  Cape Parliament, and by his political  adroitness was  made  prime minister  in 1890.     He sought and    won riches,  but it  is unfair  to  assume that'  lie  does so solely for      his own aggrandizement.   Witli   the   advancement  of  his   personal     fortune     he   has   also  striven  lo  realize an  early  dream of  bringing Africa under Briiish dominion.   '���������That's, my dream���������all English."  he said  many years ago, moving his  hand  over  a map   of  Africa up    io  the Zambesi. . Coupled   with   tiie  acquisition of  wealth,  lie  has    labored  toward  that end.  Air.  Rhodes'  financial  schemes,  included   the  combination    under    the  Consolidated   Do .Beers   mines, which  yielded vast results.    Soon  aftor    its  formation  came the  discovery o������ the  greal Transvaal gold  fields, and their  exploitation   by  Rhodes   &   company.  His  plans   for   territorial     expansion  for English interests on a grand scale  led to  the foundation  or  tho British  South    African  company.    This    was  formed lo open up,   improve and administer Alashonaland  and  all    other  Bocliuana countries up    to  thc Zambesi.    One  of,  Uie   results    was    the  Matabcle  war   and     the    defeat  and  death ot King Lobcngiilu.   The Jameson raid across the Transvaal     border vvas probably duo to the influence  of Cecil Rhodes, for he has nover denied' complicity  in it.and as a result  ho resigned in 1S9(i as prime minister  ot Cape Colony.    He had beon maintained in that ollice through Dutch iu-  liticnco, and Mr.  Scbrciner,  the present   premier,   was   at   thai   time   his  trusted  lieutenant.    Dr. ��������� Jameson  was  punished for his connexions with the  raid, but in spile of the rather damaging revelations brought out,against  Air. Rhodes at the Briiish parliamentary, inquiry,   it   was permitted to the  latter   to   return   to   Africa  with his  power and  prestige practically unimpaired.    In   September.   1S9S.  ha  was  again elected to the Capo Parliament.  On his        last visit to   Europe    he  was  received  with   favor  on    nearly  every sido.    He  had   interviews with  the  German   emperor,     who    gave  a  dinner in his honor. He obtained from  the  German   government a  franchise  to   build   a  railway     and    telegraph  line  through    German     territory    in  Africa.    This  tvas   a  long  step     toward  carrying out  one  of  his  great  dreams   of   a   Cape'-to'-Cairo  railway.  In England Oxford university honored   Mr.   Rhodes   with   the   degree   of  D.C.L.    His * rehabilitation    with  the  British   public,  therefore,   seemed   to  have been well nigh complete.  lt is said that Rhodes in all his  South African career has neve.- concealed liifi opinion that the Boers  were an obstacle that. England njust  eventually remove . Perhaps this explains why , Boer "hatred has always  been concentrated upon him.  WfTITE.    6WILUM   &  SCOTT  Barristers,   Solicitors,  Notaries Public.  Etc.

London, Nov. 2,-The Morning P������  comments   severely  upon  the Butish  contempt for the enemy as shown by  ������he belief that a large Boer force at  tne oeuv, ^^ ^^  hg held  -u checl.  It points  XcWilomes could be held in cheek  Described by  the  London  Standard's  War Correspocdent.  The war correspondent of the  Standard with the British forces at  adysimth, telegraphing as to Monday's engagement, says: "During the  opening stages of the fight, I attached myself to the centre column. We  marlied out hefore dawn and after  covering three miles, halted under a  kopje, to await developments. In the  attack on the right the first shot was  fired at 5:20 a.m. It came from Lombard's Kop, a lofty eminence rising  some five miles east of Ladysmitli.  Battery after battery went into action and gradually the enemy's fire  slackened. For nearly two hours not  a shot of ours was returned, save  when Long Tom, the name uor soldiers had given to the Boer -lO-pounder  hurled a shell, which we/ followed  with anxious eyes toward' the town  of  Ladysmith.  Enemy's Horsemen on the Watch  "Presently the enemy's hoi semen  were seen streaming on a hill to our  lelt. bheliered by rising ground,  tliey occupied a ndgc on our "left  flank and there, hidden by the scrub  and Irees, they could watch the unn  of events in safety mid await iheir  chance. The Devoitshires now advanced towards Kaffir Kraal, under  a hill, nnd tliere they remained, >vith  ordcis not to lire a shot until Jiev  were  called  upon.  "Only when volleys were heaid on  their rear and flank, did tliey show  the least sign of restlessness. The  sound ot this firing, feeble though  It was, satisfied us that the Gloucesters and Fusiliers were at work  notwithstanding the stampede of  their mules. Sir George White, Sir  Archibald Hunter and the'staff officers watched the developments ot the  artillery attack which gave the first  promise of a realization of General  White's plans.   *  "Soon atter 1 o'clock messengers  began to arrive with the news that  ihe right column needed support.  The fiist battalion of the Gordon  Highlanders, then .the Manchester  regiment, and then the rifle Drigade  vyjio had left the train for the battlefield, were sent to its assistance, tin-  till only the" Devonshire regiment, a  squadron of mounted infantry and  the field hospital were left with the  centre column.  Searching Rifle Fire  "Perceivng that a change in the  operations was in progress, I went  with the Manchester regiment toward tho right. Our artillery under  Lombard's Kop was engaged in repelling the enemy's-attempt to turn  our flank. The Manchesters were  sent forward, to support the cavalry,  _while the Dublin Fusiliers, two battalions of the 60th -rifles, the Liverpool regiment and the Leiceste~-shire&  were begining to feel thetottect of.  the enemy's  searching  rifle   fire.  "Tlie enemy rarely showed themselves, although along the'ridges that  lay beyond the range of our guns they  trom time to time gave us an opportunity ~to judge of their numbers. At  the height of the - engagement - the  noise was almost deafening.Above the  rattle of the musketry could be heard  the thud of the maxims and the banging of the quick-firing guns which  considerably added to the difficulties  our men had to encounter.    "  Raked With Heavy Fire.  * The purpose of the reconnaissance  had, however, been gallantly accomplished and our infantry began to fall  back. This movement vvas covered  by" cavalry. , Some of the troops had  to cross open ground toward the  centre and while doing so they were  raked with a heavy fire. The retire-  ���������ment was, however, effected without  disorder or serious loss.

So far as the  public Is concerned, however, while  there is gratification felt at the nun-  tier in which the isolated battalion-  surrendered there is still severe criticism for White and Carlton for allowing the column to get out of touch  by the absence of proper scouting anu  for not retiring when the ammunition  wagon was lost. In favor. of Carlton the explanation is hazarded that  he believed It was imperative to the  success of General White's operations  'that he should hold the position at  Nicholson's Nek.

Another Can-  London, Nov. 1.���������The tone of the  daily "papers in commenting on the  bad news from General White is'one  of gloom''and surprise.  The Morning Post calls attention to  Sir George White's use of the word  "capitulation," remarking that it suspects the .words was used carelessly.  It says: We prefer to assume that  the column fotighi until it was cut to  pieco3~> and all the ammunition was  gone. Capitulation Is a word of  shame. Troops in the Held cannot  capitulaten'witliout disgrace and disaster is not necessarily dishonor.  Thc Times says: We have met  with a considerable reverse. It is  for the nation to show that it can  bear 111 fortune with courage and,dignity.  The Daily News says: . If it is  found possible to move the stores, Sir  George White will probably be ordered to withdraw upon Colenso. If the  order is not given, it will be because  a removal of the stores would be too  risky.  The St. James Gazette says: 'It is  evident that the patriotism and fortitude "of the nation are to-be tested  in real earnest by these operations of  ours in Natal against odds. General  White had a difiicult task set him and  we must take the disaster with the  dogged coolness, which Britons know-  how to display. We shall await the  final result without apprehension!  The Globe _ calls upon the British  empire to receive this bitter and ��������� unpalatable despatch with the spirit of  a great nation that relies on its invincible reserve of strength.  The Irish Nationalistic papers are  quito gleeful. The Dublin Evening  Telegraph, Mr. John Dillon's paper  says: "A big bully triumph, is no  lovely spectacle, but a big bully beaten  Is" the very acme of disgrace."  The Dublin Evening Herald ridicules the idea of Great Britain menacing Russia after Sir George White's  message.  Arrangements   for   Another   Proposed  Canadian Contingent.  London.

Moreover,  in order to keep abreast the army and  nuvy would have had tu commit the  most provocative nnd threatening  acls. The Boer ultimatum followed  the British mobilisation, and if  Great Biitain had mobilized earlier  the ultimatum'would have been earlier.  Lord Lnnsdovvne explained thc  promptness of the mobibzation which  enabled five cavalry regiments, ten  batteries and 30 battalions to get far  away on the sea. During thc earlier  operations the enemy had a great  superiority of numbers and Lhe advantage of choice of ground. This  phase of the situation he hoped was  approaching its conclusion, for in  less than a week the first instalments  of Buller's lorces would arrive al  Capetown, to be followed at a steady  rate by the remainder. 1 do not  think that there need be any anxiety  regarding  the   result. There    has  been nothing in history to compare  with the 'patriotism of our colonies,  who will take no denial. Their attitude will impress upon the civilized  world the two great tiuths first, that  Greater Britain was not an empty  phrase; second that such a large  measure of voluntary support would  not have been accorded unless ive  were  fighting  a cause. ..

Brussels, Nov. 2.���������Dr. Leyds, the  special representative of the Transvaal government in Europe, in the  course of an interview regarding the  situation at Ladysmith, said he was  greatly surprised at the news of the  British disaster. While paying a  warm tributo, to the candor of Sir  George White, he pointed out that a  tactical error had been committed by  the British commander, in dividing  his forces and underrating the strength  of the Boers.      He  declined  to  give  tention of your readers to the fact tliat  we may look for a rare phenomenon  in the early hours of the Mtli inst.  -The -earth on that date is, expected  to plunge into a vast procession of  myriads upon myriads of flying meteors. If we are fortunate enough to  have a cloudless night everyone  should avail themselves of this rare  opportunity, as these* showers only  occur at long introvals. The last  one took place some 30 odd years ago,  but as the earth does not happen to  come in contact with these strange  heavenly bodies again for over a  hundred years, It is hardly likely that  any of us will live-to see such a sight  repeated.

Edge  Ranche,  Bow Valley,  Nov. 1st, '39.   o   South Africa's Groat Diamond Camp���������  An Important Locality in Which  There Is a Large'Amount ol  British Capital Invested.  Kimberley,  which   it  is    said    the  Boers   have    invested    and    isolaieci  liom the outside world, is the diamond  region   of  tne  woricl,   far  surpassing  those of Brazil  in richness.      If  the  report of the seige be true this is the  most serious blow which Kruger has  struck' at the commercial interests of  Great Britain in South Africa.     Cecil  Rhodes is in tho town and its defense  will be stubborn.     Kimberley is    not  a city in the modern-   sense    of lhe  ���������woid.      It is a great camp in which  men'   passions  rise   arid   rail   as   the  treasures   of  earth  are  uncovered   or  not found.    . The camp is in what is  called the Vaal Basing the wash ground  of the river which divides the Transvaal from the Orange Free State. The  first diamond discoveries-were    made  there about 1S70,- btttjt was 10 years  later when Englishmen      and' others  realized that   the   spot was the most  valuable of its kind in the world. By  1881 the mines which had been 'opened  had yielded gems to the value of $20,-  Ouo.OOO.      By 1SS7 seven tons, of diamonds had been/taken out   valued at  $250,000,000.      Tliis record  places the  Brazil-diamond mines in,the.shade and  made Kimberley    world wide    in its  'fame..    The Cecil   Rhodes   syndicate,  known as the De Beers,' came    inlo  control' of  all the mines after much  negotiation.     This syndicate is capitalized for $75,000,000 anil pays interest  at the rale of five and a,'half per cent  per annum and an annual dividend of  20 per cent. Since Cecil Rhodes came    _  into control  of the mines they have   r ergUSOU .  given (Jut 2,500,000 karats of diamonds.  To get  at these it has been necessary  ,io'wash the    enormous    quantity    of  2,7000,000 loads  of the  blue  earth in  whicli they are found. '  In the working of these diamond mines tliere are  employed about 1,500 white men ana  0,000   natives. ..   The   greater  proportion of those men are employed in the  tho  De Beers aud    Kimberley mines,  the tvvo biggest holes , which greedy  man has ever dug into the earth. The  De   Beers  mino   has 'an   area at.  the  surface *of 13 acres and a depth of 450  feet.     The mines    are worked    from  shafts sunk  some distance  from  the  original holes and penetrating io the  blue ground by transverse drivings at  depths varying from 500 to 1,200 feet.  The blue ground when    extracted    is  carried in  small''iron    trucks, to the  -IovelsT-^-Upon-thesc'-levcls���������the_bluc  ground is worked until thc gems within arc extracted.'    Tho process of extracting takes  from      threo to      six  months.      The stones found  vary  in  size  from  a pin  head   lo the  largest  ever' found���������428% barats.      This largest stone when cut weighed  228 1-2  karats. ���������   It is ono of the experiences  of  the   mino   owners   that  they   lose  from 10 to 15 per cent of their product each year through  the" thefts of  employes, j    who     although     closely  watched,  still  manage    to    get away  with their loot.

It  is  s-ald   of the Rhodes  Interests  that  they take good care of their working  men.     Tliey have built a model village  called   Kcnilworth     within     the  precincts of tho liiincs.      In this village are cottages for the white workmen.    , A   club house has  been   built  for their use and  lliere    is    a public  library.     The equipment of the mines  is something remarkable.     Each mine  has 10 circuits of electric lights.-Thev  consist of 52 arc lamps of 3.000 cantllt"  power each, and !)G1 glow In runs of If!  nnd G4 candle power each, or a total  illnminatinsr   nower  of    about   04,000  candles.

What  effect  the   closing  of  the  mines  by -war will  have on  thc  world at large It is hard to say.

Tin;  boat   was  found cm Saturday floating right, side  up on  the opposite side of the  lake  vvith its  contents  untouched,   lint  no  sign lind been   discovered  of  its occupants up  to  yesterday.    There  seems  little doubt   that, the  fate  of Arthur  Audy must be  added   to  the  already  long list of the  unsolved mysteries of  the fatal Columbia.  The Trust Business.  Some idea of the trust business may  be gained in the summary of the business that has been consolidated within  the past few months.  The match trust hns been capitalized at $20,000,000.  The paper business at S20,000,000.  The tannery interests at $125,000,000,-  000. .   -  Shooting Affray.  .Sntni'cliiy evening Calgary was  horrilled by the news of the murder of  Geoige Gouin, a well known real  estate man of the city.

It  is with pleasure vve state that it is  probable Mr. Wood vvill occupy the  Methodist pulpit in Revelstoke next  Sunday.  The ground has been cleared nnd  preparations commenced for building  * the new Salvation Army barracks on  First street. The old blacksmith's  shop erected by J, Mncninhnn and  burnt last year will lie re-cov_ r_ d and  used as part of the building whirh vvill  consist of h hall in front 44x20 with a  two-itorev building for residential use  in the rear.  Tlie first drill of the Revelstoke Rifle  Company in the opera house wns a  great success. Thiily-flve men turned  out ������5 compared with a usual attendance nf twelve befoie. and Captain  Taylor is naturally pleated at the  result of bis enterprise in securing the  opera house for the use of the company. The next- drill will take place  on Monday night.  Front street is strictly up against it.  The old sidewalk i< loin up and the  rain vvhidi started Monday niglit prevented the new- one being put (lown  except the sill=. so that pedestrians  have a choice of doing the balance art  on the sills or t.-ikim: lo the mud for it.  The ."-bade trees which wen; siuh a  noticeable ornament of the street,  have been sacrificed to the modern  march of improvement.  A meeting of all those interested in  curling is called for Thursday night in  the Union hotel. Ij-ist year vve had no  curling and a scrub rink went to the  Rossland bonspiel and carried away  the Hudson Bay Cup. Curlers should  now rally and get up a good club to  repre-sent Revelstoke and there is no  reason why we should not only keep  lhe cop. butalso win others dm ing the  coming season.}  ' "' Standard.
