London, Dec. 13���������The latest advices  from Gatacre show no anxiety is felt  for the remaining troops ".who have  withdrawn to a good position south of  Molento. The Boets'claim to have lost  but 4.killed" aud 9 wounded in the  fight with Gatacre. - They decline to  "furnish a,list of British killed or prisoners.

Monday   .reached , the ��������� Boer,  he.-id-  ��������� -quarters   where   they 'encountered tl  terrible fire. _. The fighting raged foe  , 15 hours, when tlie British retired, for  .'rest,   being    unable  to  dislodge the  I'lieiny.    The   losses  were heavy on  both   sides.       The   British casualties  include-the Marquis of Winchester,  Major of the* Second .Battalion" Cold-  '-strvnin Guards,  who was killed, and  Col. Downhaui of the First Battalion  ���������of the Gordon Highlanders,  who was  wounded.     When  the    Higbliiinleis  ���������met the murderous point blank fire of  the Boei-s, about tvvo hundred were  .mown    down.     The. Black    Watch  "regiment on refouning mustered -140.

They    advanced    with    the  utmost  .     gallantry     to attack,  ���������close t to the' place where their  dead and wounded-comrades "of the'  Highland brigade lay. The 'enemy  opened a heavy shrapnel fire as tin*  British" advanced and it was found  --^iuipossible_to_take"the Boer position;  The British got witliin~200^Tiirds;-but?  no nearer. It was here that Colonel  Downham fell. The Boers had made  free recourse to barbed wire entanglements, which offered- great obstacles  even after the damage inflicted by the  British artillery fire on tbe wire.  . London, Dec. 14.���������The War office is  unable to confirm the story of' the  relief* of Ladysmith by Buller and  Clery. It is further stated that relief  at this early date is practically .impossible.  The Boer Commander reports to  Gen. Gatacre that they have 22 British  killed and 59 wounded, the latter are  prisoners.  A Lorenzo Marques special says thai  Winston Churchill,war correspondent,  has escaped from Pretoria, where he  has heen prisoner for the last few  week?.  The English newspapers predict that  the campaign in South Africa vvill last  -until June or July and are clamoring  * for reinforcements to bn sent out.  f A revised list of the British casualties at Jagersfonteiu place the number  ���������at.832. .  According to the Boev accounts  ���������one British shell . at Jagersfoutein  killed and wounded 70 Boers and two  ���������other shells bnrst'over two bodies of  Boein doing feaiful damage..

London. Dec. 15.���������The War office  has received the following despatch  from Gen. Forqptier-Walker at .Capetown; Gen. French writes under dale  of Dec. 13th reporting a skirmish ut  four o'clock in the morning with 1..800  Boers who were marching southwuril.  _ The skrinishing continued all -the  ' uiorninp, the Boers fighting on a front  of 14 miles. The enemy retired vvith  n loss 61*40 killed and wounded; out-  losses were one killed and seven  wounded, including one oflicer and  two missing. Mellineii's check, following Gatacre's repulse, says the  Capetown correspondent of the Daily  News, has bad thu 'most depressing  elfeet. upon the loyalists, and it would  take but very little persuasion to make  them join the Boer.."  11 ���������  Christmas once again draws nigh and with it comeb the usual exchange of greetings and tokens of regard.

'SPECIAL DESPATCH TO THE HERALD.]  London. Dec. 16, (12:47 a. ni.)���������The  War oflice received the following despatch from Gen. Buller. who met with  a serious reverse while attempting to  cross lhe Tugela liver: '��������� Chieveley  Camp. Dec, 15, 6:20 p. in.���������Regret to  report serious reverse. I moved in full  strength from camp near here at four  o'clock this morning. Theie weie two  fordable places in the river and it was  the intention to force a passage  through one. The intention was to  force one or the other with one brigade  supported by a central brigade. . Gen.  H-n-t to attack left. Gen. Hildyaid  right and Gen. Lyttlelon the centie  and to support either. It was soon  discovered that. Gen. Hart would not  be able to force a passage and directed  liini to withdraw. He had. however,  attacked with great gallantry. All .  throughout the day st considerable  force of the enemy was pressing on  the right Hank, but vvas kept back by  the mounted men. The day - was  intensely hot and trying to the troops,  whose conduct was excellent. -I have  abandoned ten guns and lost one by  shell fire. . I fear the losses'in Gen.  Hart's brigade were heavy, although  the proportion of severely wounded is  I hope not large. The 14th and 66th  field ' batteries 'also - suffered severe-  losses.   I have retired to camp here.  FURTHER PARTICULARS   '   .  Gen. Hart's  leading   battalion, ��������� the'  Connaught rangeis,   I  fear,   suffered  greiitly.and Col. Brooke was seriously  wounded.   I then ordered Gen. Hild-  vard to advance, which he did and bis  leading regiment, the East Surrey, occupied Golenso station and the houses  near the bridge.   At that moment I  heard that the whole of the artillery  I had sent to support' the attack, < the  14th  and  00th field  batteries  and _6  naval twelve  pounder   quick-firers,  under Col Long, had advanced close to  the river, in   Col.'

It is a history, in  PRESS CD.-.liYiENT OH THE MANITOBA  SNOW SLIDE.  ^Winnipeg Tribune  ' The reverse of the Greenway government is striking indeed in thc  light lot its strength _in_the_recent  legislature"and' the circunistauces_ attending' the present'eleetion. In the  preparation for the contest, in the  ' selection ot its dates and in the caVry-  ing .out of the campaign, it occupied the advantageous position of a  party in power, and full use was no  -doubt made of the tactical opportunities thus afforded. It had the support  also of the Dominion government,  and the strenuous .efforts of the minister of the interior, whose political  fortune was at stake. It had a  majority of six to one in the legislature just .dissolved. , obtained only  three or four years ago. lt is a  government which very recently hail  a ivery great hold on the affections  and confidence of the people. Yet it  has sustained a  crushing reverse.  The opposition*.were no doubt fortunate in having a' leader of the  personal popularity of Mr. Hugh John  Macdonald, 'hut Mr. Greenway also  had a great personal hold on the  electorate of the province, especially  in the rural constituencies. Effective  organization had secured reasonably  fair lists and the lists were at least  as [fair to the government as to thc  opposition, and of the many excellent candidates nominated neither  party can .claim *a .preponderance.  The cause of the result is to be found  mainly in the strong dissatisfaction  " of the people with the present railway policy of tho .local and Dominion governments. It is the course  followed by the provincial government an connexion vvith railway  construction during the last year or  two", into which it was led by the  'minister | of the interior, which has  lost it the confidence of the people of  Manitoba. Had Mr. Greenway followed such a course as vvas,called for  by the people and advocated by the  Tribune, his government would todav he'stronger than ever, and he  would have the wholo province- at  his hack.  ^^^���������-^mannt^lSh'o���������  .

Mr. Ireland de-  noitneePs lho nioration of 40,000 slaves,  worth ?15,000.000, while the owners  wero awarded a good deal less than  l-alf that sum. Mr. Theal, the historian holds that the abolition policy  had 'little lo do with the first scission, but tho records of thc lima are  {���������gainst that conclusion. There wore,  it is true, other causes of discontent���������such as the pro-negro policy of  Li rd Gleucig after tho Kaffir war of  It3-1-35. and, at any rate, thc more  independent Boers found the situation  intolerable ar.d a body of 8,000 determined lo leavo. the colony.. The -life  lived by tho seceders until 1S52-5..  when, after much vacillation, the  British government recognized the independence of the Boor .communities,  is passed over. In 1S57 the Orange  Kiver Free State was raided by a  body of Transvaalers, led by a young  follow, named S. J. P. Kruger, hut tho  l-'rcc State burghers wero not unprepared nnd rejected Mr. Paul Kruger's  proposal of a league. They conceded  to the Transvaalers, however, tho  same rights and privileges that they  grantod to citizens of thc Cape, and  N.ital colonies.  The course of events during the ne^ct  20" years may be conjectured from  lhe conditions prevailing in the Transvaal at the close ot -iat period. ** Mr.  Ireland points out that "at the time  of the annexation of thc Transvaal m  J877 tho majority ot thc Boers were  anxious to be taken under Briti<-h  nilo." ' There was only a small baud  of Boers who had only wished to put  Kittgei- in tlie place of Burghers, and.  who. having seen the latter dethroned  hv the annexation, began' -to agitat.  under Kruger's lead-for re-troccssion.  "Nothing,-' says Mr. Ireland, would  have ccmo of this movement, had it  r.ot been for* the incredible folly of  tho British government.'' It is needless to renew by recalling the, pain cf  that calamitous period. Mr. Ireland  does not absolve the Conservative?  (how could he. indeed?), from blame,  but he clears their policy from "that  depth of baseness which marked the.  actions of the Gladstone administrations in 1SS1." By a persistent, infatuation that recalls a heathen proverb the way was smoothed for Kruger's triumph and then, nil pledges  wero disregarded, and loyal Britons,  3oex.*_!__ allk(_;_  rail!  mm  mm  ii  crown, upon tho reports mado from  time to time by thc inspectors, fc'uch  honors, bestowed only in op.ser, of  great desert, youlil excite as noble an  ambition as that which m-_cd the  ancient Greek lo strive for tho golden crown, and tho presentation from  time to time wnuld afford rare opportunities���������now loo rare���������in which  the public mind would be direi'lcd to  the work of tho teacher.

Tho  noine and the church have an important share in tho work, but they  are really secondary to ihe school.  The school teacher is accordingly  more nearly related to ihe well being  of the sLate than either lhe parent or  the minister; and a country which,  realizes the importance of having  gocd citizens, that ls to say, one  which has ah intelligent regard for  us own interests ought to be willing to make any reasonable sacriiice  to secure goodi schools and good  teachers. ���������  Novv in my view a good teacher  is more than a competent scholar  well versed in pedagogic methods.

Kow i? this to he done? Tt "Oeiny  to me to 1. _ a plain matter of practical  statesmanship.  Kir.=t of all the teaching profession  should he endowed in such a way  that in no case would the sa).irvf.iil  bo low a fair figure, while as th-' rewards of special efficiency handsome  stipends would be available. In .-Ki-  dltion to good pay during the working years, there should be a provision  mado for a retiring allowance fab/iv  proportionate to the length of service, and amounting in ca-ses of retirement through "old age or aft"r a  lengthe.ned period of service, to an  ample annuity. The lowest, salar',-  anywherij should be at least %7rU;  from the maximumu salaries should  range, up to $.j000 and SI0.010. Thi*?  is merely' saying that the man 'or  woman who has genius for the m.rjt  vital of all callings, should have material prospects as good as now exi'-t  ln the other professions. Under  such condition.-! we might reasonably  hope, to attract the best mind3 anil  natures to our schol rooms great and  small.  Further, as an incentive to high  effort, especially in the direction of  chartacter building, the moral in-  fiiicnec of lho teacher should he noted  and recognibed by thc bostowment of  honorary rewards ��������� something in  he nature of lhe Victoria.

I'i'Ji  Shackled Together in a Passenger Car  They Secured Revolvers from Two  Loving Women and Opened Fire on  the Officers���������Jumped from lhe Train  and Took to the Woods.  Chicago, Dec. 3. ���������A special to tho  Record from Austin, Texas, says: T.  B. Blocker, a prominent stockman of  this section recently returned from  his old home in Illinois. While  thero he taok occasion to visit tho  penitentiary at Chester, and was  greatly surprised to meet tind ion-  verse with lt.b.rt Yerger, fonr.t-.y  one of the most ui'i "..is." _uiisiw& in  Texas, and who was serving a HI-"  sentence for robbing the mails in one  of his numerous hold ties.  Yerger belonged io a g.'ti'g of stage  and train robbers vvho operued extensively in this part r.t the state in  the early SO's. Tiny were known as  the "Robbers' Cave G1115,*' from iiie  fact that they made tneir rendez-ne.s  in caves in thc Helot.s hills, _.iu*.au.(*.  south of this cily aboil'. 50 :nil.-_.  There wore seven -iuiu'-jos of the  gang, the leading ones being Yerger, Jim McDaniels. and Ezra Pitts,  The robberies became so fiequent  and bold that 111 thc fall of liSI a  force of United States deputy nitirsh-  als started out with the dete-.-ti'ir.a-  tion of rounding them up. I'll ~y mil  McDaniels in a country road near  Nevv Braumfels and a pitched battle  took place without any pai laying by  either the desperado or the officers.  McDaniel's body was riddled v.ith  bullets but he did not strip shooting  until ��������� he had wounded two of the  deputy marshals. A short time after  McDaniel's tragic death Yerger and  Pitts were captured by the deputy  marshals. Both were given life sentences   in   Chester, Jll.,   penitentiary.  Attempt to Escape  It vvas a fevv days after "their conviction that the two prisoners made one  of the most desperate attempts to  escape known in the.criminal .annals  of Texas. Henry L. Gosling, vvas  United States marshal for the western district of Texas, which embraces  all of that territory west of the Culo-  rado river, at* that time, and he  came to Austin to convey the two  desperate prisoners to San Antonio,  whero tho jail was more secure, pending their removal 10 the penitentiary.  Gosling was one of the most noted  and popular fronticisnien in Texas.  Ho was editor of a country paper at  Castorville, Texas., called the Quill.  Gosling was a Republican but that  did not detract any from his popularity. He was ia fearless" officer and  vvas so careless when in the presence  of danger that he did not take the  precaution to shackle" the tvvo prisoners to the car seats, though they  were fastened together ".when ihey  were placed on the traiii hero to  take them to San Antonio. Deputy  Marshals -Manning and Lang accompanied Gosling and they were in  active charge of the prisoners. "Gosling took a seat three seats forward  of the prisoner's, his seat "companion  being H. S.Canfield, formerly a Texas ranger.but for ssveral years past  a resident of Chicago. A number of  relatives of the prisoners wore on the  train, but wo.e not allowed' in the  same, -tier with the latter, shortly  * after the train pulled out of the" depot  heie Mrs.,tPitts, the pretty wile of  one o'f the'prisoners, came to,Gosling  and asked that ehe^ be allowed to sit  by the side of her'liusband. She also  pleaded that Rose Yerger, sister of  the other prisoner, be' allowed the  eame privilege. Tears, coursed down  the face of. tho woman as she asked  this favor and -Gosling granted her  request. Tvvo seats were thrown together and Mrs. Pitts sat facing hot-  husband and- Rose Yerger her  brother.  Women Furnished the -Weapons  The traiii-left here about nightfall  and it was about 9 o'clock when New  Braumfels was-'reached. The tvvo  women had spent the. time sobbing  on tlie shoulders of the prisoners and  Gosling and* his .two deputies had no  thought of the, plot that, was being  arranged. Shortly after New Braumfels.- was passed Pitts slyly reached  his shackled hands underneath .the  folds *of his wife's dress and secured  a vslx shooter , which , had been concealed there. Yerger did likewise and  drew forth'a" six shooter from his  1 slster'st dress. Thc two -prisoners  then sprang into the centre of tho  -_car^-a!id-_bagan_firing_at_Gosliiig^.aud-  the tvvo deputies simultaneously.  The tvvo first shots came together  and struck thc brave United, States  marshal squarely'-.in tho back "and lie  pitched forward, on his face. .Depti-"  ties Manning and Lang were quick to  get. into-the fray. The cylinder of  i,ang-s pistol would not revolve and  li ���������>' was powerle'ss to render any assistance to Manning, who stood up  fearlessly before the reign of bullets  lhat vvas being showered at him by  tbo ;two prisoners... Manning emptied   the "chamber  of  his   six-shooter  from tlio train. Thoy had a pack of  blood hounds and thc latter immediately gave tongue and followed a  bloody '.trail made by tho fugitives  for a.bout a distance of about GOO  yards whero they came to tho botly  of Pitts lying in a bunch of woods.  Ho had been shot twice through the  'body and it vvas remarkable that he  should .have been able to jump from  the moving tiain and go that distance  wounded as he was. Yerger had released himself from his companion  by severing the lalter's' right hand at  the wrist. The pursuit ,of Yerger was  continued and he vvas found that  evening wandering in the hills in tho  western part of Comal county. He  was demented and made no resistance  when oidered 10 throw up his hands  anti surrendered. He recovered ��������� his  censes in a few days and was conveyed lo the penitentiary at Chester, 111.,  where he is still confined. Although  badly wounded, Manning recovered,  and "is now living on the Rio Grande  border.  _ o   ENGLAND'S    WORK      IN     SOUTH  WORK      IN  AFRICA  To -the Editor of, tho Herald:  Sir: Wc have heard a lot, of criticism aud opinions of late, from  members, of parliament, the press and  the pulpit as to tho morality of enforcing what England claims to be  hor rights in tlio present South African war.  In such opinions uud criticisms,  apart from ignoring the fact thai  when .1110 Boers treked across the  Vaal river from Cape Colony in oider  to bo at liberty to keep slaves and  bo free from other wholesome restrictions connected with British civilization that they were only tolerated  as a self governing state subject to  British protection; apart from ignoring the fact that England was continually'called upon lo protect the  Boors and prevent their annihilation  by the ������ulus, Basutos, etc.; apart  from ignoring the fact that England  has a legal suzerainty over the South  African republic and is legally responsible to other nations for the  rights and liberties of all nationalities residing in the Transvaal; apart  from ignoring the fact that President  Kruger's ultimatum to Hor Majesty's  government vvas practically a declaration of war and that "our territory  was actually invaded; apart from  ignoring^ theso most .salient features  of-the South African question, the  groat fact is lest sight of that England is fighting for her rights and  interests, not only in the Transvaal  or Natal, or even in Cape Colony, but  111 .1110 whole of South Africa and in  fact in tho whole continent.  Now sir, .1 contend that England's  claim apart from naval and military  matters is supreme. It is mainly by  enterprise and handiwork of  Biitishcrs that ali the great lakes  and riveis of Africa havo beeu made  known to 'the world.  Lakes Tchad. Victoria Nyanza,  Tanganyika, Pukwa, Nyasa and  others wore'discovered by English,  Scotch, 0 Welsh or Irish.  Englishmen first mapped out the  Orange river, the Limpopo, the Ru-  viima, the Rufigi,' lhe Juba. the  Webb, the Gambia and the- Senegal.  Muugo 'Park is associated as  strongly with the Niger-as Stanley  is with the Congo, while the Umbangi  was discovered and mapped olit by  Grenfell. "^also an Englishman. And  still I haven't mentioned the namo  ot 'tlie groat Livingston. Aiid in  Northern African, Englishmen and  tho first to record the information of  the Nile and its system, aiid what  work done by any other nation can"  compare with that of' Moffat,. Bruce.  Speke, _Grant, Baker, Pethcrick and  the- immortal  Gordon. * ;  We constructed the first railways in'  Africa which turned Cape Colony  from a little patch,into a great empire. We put telegraph polos ��������� all  around .the continent." We first projected traversing Africa from north  to south with telegraph wires. Wc  put the first-steamers on the Niger,  Zambesi, Nile, Gambia and almost  every navigable river. Of what our  British missionaries have done I  cannot now write but surely the facts  that I liave mentioned are potent arguments in favor of our sticking to  our African possessions^ and upholding our paramountcy in* that continent* at any, price.

"When a  man comes too after a' common   every"  day spree aud finds that somebody ha-s  relieved him of his watch and wallet,  while he was dead to the world,  he  lilies to explain tho circumstances* by  declaring  that  he* was   drugged.      A  periodical  drunkard   is  generally  deficient in moral  courage, particularly  vvhen. his nerves are- unstrung   from  the effects of a jag and a dark brown  lasto is still lingering in the. roof-nf  his mouth. He,hates to admit thaUhe  stood up to a bar and guzzled whiskey  until he didn't know whether ho was  111 New Orleans or Manila, and_find=  is much pleasanter and more dignified  to say that he merely strolled  in  to  get a smile and was given a saturated  solution of knock out drops   by    th?  wicked bartender. The story has been  told so often that most people really  believe such things are done.     In 29  years' experience as,an officer   I liave  investigated hundreds of tales of that  hind, and havo never been able, to find  one particle of corroboratory evidence  -Jii-the-majority-of-casc3'iti">vas=easy-l������-  olitain proof positive that nothing was  involved beyond  ,an    ordinary spree.  1 doubt extremely whether .men    are  ever drugegd in dives, not that I think  the divekeepers would be any too good  for such an enterprise,    but   because  they would be afraid to tamper with  p'reparations powerful enough to produce such a result.    What they really  do is to 'jolly' along the   poor dune,  llatiering his vanity, detaining him at  the >bar byrall sorts    ot    tricks and  wiles, and continually plying him with  c! eap whiskey.     In an hour's time it  is a hundred to ono he is snoring in a  Luck room; after   which   he   can *bo  roiled at leisure.     While    he is .still  dazed and stupid, it is nn easy thing  to pilot him four or, five blocks awa;.  and leave him in some dark   corner.  When ho wakes up, he   doesn't-, know  how the dickens he got there, and he  toddles off to polico fieadquarters to  sing the old song about being drugged.  1 never saw any knock out drops er-  crpt in   tho   newspapers."���������New   Orleans Times-Democrat.

NOTE AND COMMENT.  This registration clause is going to  limit the number of possible candidates for the nevv city council to a  very select few indeed. The mayor  must he owner of registered property  to the amount of $1,000 over and  above any registered encumbrance,  and nn alderman of the same to the  amount of $500 over and above. The  number of registered owners in town  owing to the peculiar circumstances  vvhich have attended the history of its  site is small and lhis registration  clause practically leaves the government of the city for the time .being in  the hands of a few registered owners.  At the tirst election registration was  nob required as a condition of candidacy and the choice was much freer in  consequence.

Our grand old leader  is visiting us vvith the laurels of his  recent victory in Manitoba fresh upon  bim. "We ought to give him a welcome commensurate with the enthusiasm which that great success has  reinstilled into,the rank and file of the  party. The Manitoba fight was no  mere affair ' of - outposts. < It was a  recognaisance in force and the Grit  entrenchments were carried in sp.ite  of everything that the Ontario  machine and the Manitoba machine:  and the Dominion Government!  machine could do.

The recent, gerrymander of the  Trout Lake mining division for the  benefit of Knslo is calling forth loud  protests from the Lardeau. As is well  known a' great miiuy well known  properties, wliich have always been  considered ins ��������� within . the bounds  of the. Trout .Lake division are  really just, across the watershed be  tweeri bhe Duncan river and the  Lardeau. ; Such are such well known  groups'as the Black Diamond, Little  Robert, Black Warrior and all the  Westfall group of properties.- By this  wonderful -..new. arrangement these  properties ate cut off fi-om the Trout  Luke recording oflficeentirely.altliougli  a trail of from 12 to 20 miles in length  connects them vvith it and novv all  business connected with theni-has to  be transacted ab Kaslo, which by the  nearest route is 80 to 100 miles away,  nnd by the quickest and most feasible  120 to 110. The same remarks applv  to the groups such as the Abbotb nnd  Wagner, south of Haley creek. The  ostensible reason for this' change is  that the Duncan slope is in R. Green,  M. P. P'S. electoral district. The real  reason is because Kaslo wants to  corral its business. Other contributory causes are that Knslo hns a live  member, and Trout Lake, in common  vvith the rest of tlie Revelstoke  electoral district, a dead-alive one.  However, Mr. Kellie may as well  make up his mind that be hns gob to  get this thing altered or at 'least coin-  promised by making the Trout Lake j  office a sub office of Kaslo 'for thei  purposes of these Duncan slope and  Haley creek claims, if ib takes a leg.
