A  small force of men went to work,  but their numbers were increased  this morning, and it is the intention  to.swell the force to the full number. Most of the men are  picked miners, and the Bosun Avill  have a splendid working-ere.v.. It  is understood the Avages paid are  on the recent compromise basis of  $-..25 per day. Shipments Avill follow in regular order. The effect on  the towniof the resumption of AV.oi-k  on the Bosun is most encouraging,  4 and thus, with the other mines  iioav operating, promise a good  season for this section!  Upwards of ninety men arc now  employed  on   the  Payne, and. the  'ore'shipments are  increasing at a  rapid rate, averaging now  40  tons  per day. .

Heavy ore shipments  Avill ensue from'this property.  James English, one of the best  known young men in town, left yesterday for Nelson to endeavor to  secure a position in the British contingent of Strathcona's horse.

LONDON CREDITS THE STORY  BULLER HAS RETIRED AGAIN  Speculation as to His Object.  Chicago, February 9.���-[Special to  , tho. Tribune].���News . has . beeii received in London from Boer sources,  which, however, has not yet been  confirmed by dispatches to the Avar  office, asserting that general Buller's  forces',Aihieh0 on Monday crossed  the Tugela at Molen's drift, have  been compelled to retreat, after  .severe fighting on Thursday morning.  In the house.of commons tonight,  Mr. Balfour, the government leader,  made the following announcement:  ''Our information points to the fact  that general Buller is not pressing  an advance from the position he has  occupied. We do not consider it  right to press him for details of the  operations AA'hich are in progress,  nor if he gives such information do  avc deem it proper to make it public  ,un til such operations a re com pleted."  General MacDonald, who has been  holding Koodoosherg drift, has been  ordered to. return to Methuen's  camp on'the.Modder river, the purpose of the reconnaissance having  been aceom pi ished.

A committee of three  Avas appointed to seek a meeting  Avith the mine-oAvners, but after repeated efforts the members of the  association flatly refused to meet  the members of the committee under any consideration. The delegates will return home,   it is not  - known Avhat will be the next move  on the part of the miners.  Atlin Open to All-Comers.  Victoria, February 9.���[Special  to the Tribune.]���At tho eA'cning  session of the legislature last night  attorney-general Henderson submitted the promised amendment to  .-\ the Placer Mining Act. This goes  further than Avas before indicated,  and not only permits aliens to acquire mining property by purchase,  but, by altogether repealing the Act  of last session makes them eligible  as before to take out freo miners'  certificates, and stake ami hold  property. In consequence of this  Joe Martin AvithdreAV tho bill to the  same effect, of "which ho had given  notice. On this issue tho goA'ernment might have been defeated, but  the ministers ha\*ebecn aviso enough  not to hold out against public  opinion.  "With Ireland's Politicians.  London, February 9.���During the  debate in the house of commons today, the amendment to the address  in reply to the speech from the  throne, introduced by John Joseph  Clancy, Iribli Nationalist member  for the north division of Dublin  county, calling attention to the  overtaxation of Ireland, Timothy  Jlealy, Irish Nationalist member  for North Louth* protested against  the interpretation of the act of  union being decided ex~parte. He  (Contrasted the English attitude  therein to the Venezuela case, Avhen  the United States forced arbitration, and in which Mr. He&ly as-  Lonoon,    February    9.���In    the  Morning  Post,  Spencer AVilkinson  today, reviewing the military situation, says:    "Lord Roberts is evidently about to begin his campaign,  and there aie   signs  that general  Methuen's force Avill make the first  important   move.     I.t   is  pro!.able  that the seventh, division Avill soon  be heard of, co-opeia&ing Avith general Methiien.   The latest iioaa's regarding general Buller's operations  is    puzzling^    It    looks    now   as  if    he    never     seiiously   contemplated an  attack to relievo Ladysmith,  but   only  a demonstration  to prevent the Boers from diverting  reinforcements    to   Mageisfontein.  Looking to the distance from Ladysmith to   Kimberly, a   journey in  Avhich  the Boers  would got little  railway help  for tho  transport of  theii   forces,   lord   Robei'ts has   a  clear Avcck for the first bloAV, which  Avill put a neAV face upon the  situation.     This   hypothesis  Avould  account   for     the   present   state   of  things, iu both theatres of Avar, and  tho  peculiarities  of the attacks of  Monday and   Tuesday,  AA'ould.be-'  come intelligible,* for  if they had  been   intended  as a set ions niove-  ment,  general  I.uller  would   have  been largely rcinfoiccd, and Avould  have    pushed    the    attack    with  greater energy,"  THE IE ROI U_Y8~0FF ~ME-I  Northport Smelter to Close.  IIosst.anp, Feb. 9 -The Le Roi  ceased shipping today and paid off  about 100 men this morning, retaining about 200 men for development  Avork only. It is not expected that  the move AA'ill affect other British-  American corporation mines. Shipments -will not be lesiimed until  tho neAV 40-diill compressor plant  ordered last October is installed  and iu Avorking order. Manager  MacDonald declined today to say  when shipping AA'ould bo resumed.  Coming so soon after tho War  Eagle  and  Centre Star announee-  ,ment, the Le Roi matter causes a  gieut deal of uneasiness here.    In  -many quarters the action of all the  companies is "alleged ,to be on  account of tho eight hour hvw, but  there is no confirmation of this  from any reliable sou ice.

Loxnox, February 10.���London  accepts as the truth the Boer  statement that general Buller has  again failed. The reports which  Avere passed by the British censor  at Aden, aro read in the light of  Mr. Balfour's announcement in the  commons, that general Buller is not  pressing his advance.  Winston Churchill cables that  Valkranlz Avas impracticable, for  the lack of guns Avhich were needed  to support a further advance. His  cablegram leaA'es general Buller on  Tuesday night,'sen ding a fresh brigade to relieve tired soldiers of  .Valkrantz.  The descriptive writers with  general Buller Avere alloAved rather  a free hand again in explaining the  ugly position Avhich the British  held, and the nature of the obstacles  Avhich had to be��� overcome,- so it is  easy to infer that Avith Boer riflemen and artillery defending them,  the hills,.ravines.and jungles have  not been overcome, and thus the,  public is prepared in advance for  bad neAArs.  Heliograms from Ladysmith, dated IMonday, describe tho effect of  general Buller's cannonade had on  the worn garrison. Hope ran" high,  that the long period of inactivity  and-tedium AA'as drawing to a close.  The crash of guns AA'as almost continuous for ten hours, and at times  it seems as if as many as 20 shells  burst in a minute. The Boers, preparing ahvays for the possibility of  defeat, AA'ero driving herds and  sending long " Avagon trains the  Drakensburg passes.  General McDonald's retirement  puzzles tho military commentator.  The theory that finds acceptance is  that it AA'as ordered by lord Rob-  eits, and that both general Buller's  and general McDonald's operations  AA'ere by the direction of the commander-in-chief, in order to occupy  -the Boers > at Avidely .separated  points, so P-hat they would be-unable to transfer any portion of,their  forces to oppose the projected cen-  tial advance.  Charles Williams, a military  Avi iter who is understood to be in  confidential relations AA'ith ��� lord  Wolseley, says that beyond doubt  the most authoritative opinion in  London regards it as probable that  all endeavor AA'ill be made to force  the line of the Orange river before  Wednesday next, possibly by Monday. '  Henry V. Lucy says that the  health of sir Alfred Milner, governor of Cape Colony, is suffering  from the prolonged strain, and his  fi Sends fear he Avill break doAvn.  Lord Salisbury's son, lord Ed-  Avard Cecil, is responsible for Mafeking being so well provisioned. ' At  the outbreak of tho Avar he learned  the amount of army stores about  to be sent to Mafeking, and, on his  OAvn incentive pledged his priA'ate  means, and had these stores quadrupled. He is iioav in Mafeking.  "and ono"of its boldest" defenders.  Loxnox, February 10. ��� The  Times, dealing with the military  situation, says : "If general Buller  has failed, it seems unlikely that  another attempt -will be made. The  terrible initial stragetic mistake of  abandoning the principal objective  for a subsidiary operation, still  oA'ei'Aveighs the campaign, but tho  time approaches Avhen its baneful  influence Avill cease to defer our  action. The great issues of the  AA'ar Avill not bo decided in Natal."  General MacDonald'a retirement,  the Times considers inexplicable.  London, February 10.���A special  dispatch from Spearmans Camp,  dated yesterday (Friday), says that  OAving to the Boor cross lire, and  the impossibility of entrenching  Vaalkrantz, general Buller's forces  AvithdrcvA'. The Financial Ncavs,  Avhich publishes this dispatch, suggests that general Buller has not  yet actually recrossed   the Tugela,  increase in the navy. It is thought  that parliament AviII be asked for  ��20,000,000 for uoav ships. The Avar  office has reduced the minimum  standard height again, this time to  live feet, three inches, for infantry;  and five feet, tAvo inches, for artillery.

Apparently there is no legislative  authority to meet the situation by  the appropriation of funds for the  relief of those in distress, .ind it is  understood to be the purpose of  president McKiniey to communicate  the facts to congress, AA'ith a request  for authority to rccoijA'one the old  legislature, to establish a commission Avith ] 10Aver to do Avhatever is  needful at this time.

To Kootenay's Volunteers.  The Nelson contingent of the  Strathcona Horse left at midnight  for.Ottawa, amid an outpouring of  enthusiasm, the equal of Avhich has  not been seen in Nelson. They  AA'ero dined at the Hotel Phair, and  escorted to tho Avharf by a croAvd  of not less than 1000 citizens, avIio  could scarce find means to vent the  feelings Avithin them. The occasion  Avill linger long in the memories of  those avIio Avitnesscd the scene.  At 9:.'_0 o'clock the fareAvell banquet opened at the Phair. The  dinner Avas tendered by George C.

When covers Avere removed mayor  Houston introduced the toast list of  tho eA'cning by neatly proposing the  health of her most gracious majesty  avIio ruled, lie said, amid applause,  the gieate.st empire the Avorld has  ever seen.' The company responded  Avith a resounding rendition of the  national anthem.  "The Army and Volunteers" Avas  proposed coupled Avith the name of  Dr. Boavcs of l_oy_land, avIio made  an eloquent 1 espouse.     Tho toast,  he said, Avas dear  to  the  heart  of  every  Anglo-Saxon, and  ho  uiged  the Kootenay b-'J's iioav starting to  the front to emulate the example of  their hcioic forefatheis. Thoy AA'ere  going forth  as the representatives  of Canada, the feAV  chosen  Avhere  many had  responded   to  the  vail.  (Applause.)

In conclusion  lie  AA'ishcd  the contingent God-speed  and  a  safe  return.  T. G.

They AA'ere made of the right  stuff, and could be" depended upon  to respond to tiie call of duty.   The  boys'must bear in mind that it AA'as  no picnic party they Avere engaged  in. Some of those gathered together  around   the   festive   board   might  never return, but he could imagine  no more   glorious   death   for  any  man than  one  met -Avhile battling  for the cause of the empire.

The    Strathcona   Horse  AA'ould be  iblloAA'ed   from  place to  place by  tho telegrams appearing  in the daily papers, and their course  AA'ould be Avatched Avith keen interest. . He charged them, should they  meet those who had gone forth before from the Kootenay, that they  should'convey the kindest greetings  of the  people  of Nelson,, and concluded .with a repetition of the sentiment '���God speed the boys."

Mr. 'McCrae expressed the hope that he might hear  of some of those volunteers present  ast haying attained, the title of  M. P.

In concluding  he revealed the secret of Avhipping  the Boers: by exhibiting a Lee-  Enfield cartridge, AA'hich was greeted  Avith cheers.  Lieutenant-colonel Morris entered  at this moment.arid handed mayor  Houston: a telegraphic message he  had just received from the state of  Washington.    It lead :  "To Kootenay 'contingent, Strathcona Horse.���" Your American Avell  Avishers on the Washington side of  the line send greetings and good  ���Avill.

The croAvd sent  volley after volley of cheers after  tho departing steamer to AA'hich the  A'oluntecrs responded lustily until  tho craft AA'as out of hailing distance.

Victoria; February 9.���[Special  to the Tribune,]���There aro Avigs  on parliament green. Joe Martin  today got his opportunity, and  poured the vials of his long-nursed  Avrath on his snpplanter. Cotton.  As a climax, he g.-rvo notice that ho  Avould move for ;i committee of inquiry " to investigate gross charges  of criminal "-misconduct against the  finance minister, which I am prepared to make in this-house and  have investigated."  The storm burst quite unexpectedly, like the proverbial thunderbolt from a clear sky.    The legislature Avas discussing,with becoming r  unanimity,.   Helgesen's    resolution  protesting against the admission of  Mongolians to citizenship, and Martin, AA'ith a sIioav. of irritation; iiici- '  dentally referred to the haw propo-  ion on the  part of  tho goA'ernment   to   adopt    the   Act    as   a  solution of the problem for dealing  Avith Mongolians. This Act provides  for an  educational  test  for immigrants.  Martin said this was a distinct  reversal of the policy of the government, Avhen he Avas a member of  it, and he advised against thus  yielding to pressure, instead of re-  enacting the anti-Mongolian legislation Avhich Avas disalloAved sit  OttaAA'a. He said he had folUnved  this course Avith success in Manitoba.  Shortly afterAA'ards Cotton spoke,  and Avhile denying that the ministers had reversed their policy he  indiscreetly proceeded to deal Avith  Martin's Manitoba record, AA'ith the '  obsei'A'ation, "I think the opinion  Ave must have of tho honorable'  gentleman's actions and career iu  Manitoba can be formed from his  retirement from that scene."  "What's that you say?" Martin  demanded iu a tone and manner  that electrified the houso.  Cotton    would    willingly    l.?-ye'  evaded  the- question,  but  Martin*^  ngain demanded that ho repeat tho  oulyhalf-hetird sentence, and Cotton  at length did_so.  Martin thereupon ictorted Avith  the vehement declaration, that ihts  was "the most contemptible statement ever made on the floor of the  house/' and AA'as proceeding AA'ith  otherforcible language AA'hen speaker  Forster succeeded in stopping the  fioAv by a tin eat to "name him."  The ex-attorney-general's rage  could-not be .-outrolled however,'  and <from his seat he kept up a  cross-fire of insulting ejaculations.  He said he Could go luck to Manitoba as often as ho liked, but that  Cotton dare not go to Colorado. Ik-  had no creditors in Manitoba, and  he had defrauded nobody there.  Could Cotton say a-_ much ?  Again the speaker interposed his  threat to name the Ex-Attorney  General and while Martin cogi.ed  Iioav  to  keep Avithin the 1 ules, and  atill pursue hi. enemy,  CljJTord,  in   a spirit of mischief, moved an  amendment to the resolution before  tho house. Martin immediately  took the floor, and Avaving aside  tho .speakers admonitions to confine  himself to the amendment, he  launched into new tit ado against  the finance minister, throAving out  th'e additional hint that "I have  never been capiased. I have never  been in gaol. Can the honorable  gentleman *-ay that pnuio AAith  regard to the place from which lie  came?  Cotton here found hi.s voice and  protested that he had intended  nothing personal, and that Martin's  insinuation AA'as Avithout foundation.  Martin, with a fresh breath, took  a iioav start on the text, reciting  that he aviis the first man Avho had  been able to extort a denial of the  often repeated story of the finance  minister's Avrong doing.  By this time the issue betAveen  speaker Forster and Martin AA'as be-  _coming acute, and Martin subsided  with the declaration that if ho was  not in order now, he AA'ould find occasion for ventilating the matter  by moving for the select committee  leferred to above.  No doubt Martin "vv ill be as good  as his Avord, and there are stirring  times ahead. Cotton had nothing  further to -.ay in the hou=e, but  this evening lie intimated that  neither himself nor the government  had cause for uneasiness- in fact  that, " Tho outcome of today  entertainment" will materially  strengthen the hands of the government.  -JBW��**��Sii|fe:^-_S"P  __-��-i__.-._. -.-.-���_-.-f*-for*'��. _-_k����^_-;*5-3-__h-._l__tfiT?ftfi^<_3-__-:^  g^pspiigsagg^\;.iiga THE TRIBUNE:  NELSON B.

Cni(.AKi-_i-V Avrcstcd the control  of the Silver King group of mines  from the men Avho discoA'ered it,  and it uoav looks as if mismanagement- bad rendered Avorthless the  stock that these men got for their  remaining interest in that property.  Eight years of scheming, and the  end is near. For tho good name of  British Columbia as a field for the  investment of mining capital, it is  to bo hoped the Silver King mine  and smelter Avill remain closed doAvn  rather than work be again resumed,  under the old management.  The action of the management of  tho Hall Mines, in deciding to cease  operations, Avill   not surprise  any  Avho  have ...followed'., the  career of  the company for the-past tAA'o years.  Although    not     unexpected,    the  action creates a condition -which is  certainly unpleasant to face.    The  mere   fact,  that  the management  has found it necessary to suspend  operations, carries  upon its face au  admission of failure.    This may bo  the fault of the mine, or  it may be  the fault of-the management.    It is  this phase of the question  AA'hich  most interests the people of Nelson,  as Avell as the stockholders who embarked their  money in  the  enterprise.    If the company has ceased  operations because the Silver King  group of claims will no  longer pay  Avorking expenses, and a reasonable  return  upon  the  money  invested,  then the bhut doAvu is a seA'erebloAV  to  Nelson  and the  entire district.  If,  hoAA-eA'er,  the   shut   down   has  been   occasioned    by   incompetent  management, it is no 1)1oav to either  the people of Nelson or the district  of Kootonay.     The suspension of-  operation-, in such an  event  will  call for an examination of tho  property, and the resumption of operations under capable management.  Until something of this kind has  been done, it is idle for anyone to  attempt'' to fix the cause for the  company's suspension. In A'ieAV of  this it is unfortunate that the local  manager of the company��� IL F,.  Croasdaile���should be so thought-  les'. as to lay the blame for the unhappy condition of affairs at the  door of tho provincial legislature  and that of the niiuera* union.  This is at least a, poor return for  the consideration sIioavu to the Hall  Mines management by the officers  of the local union. When the eight-  hour laAV Avent into effect, the ofli-  cei-a of the union Avere awarej^f the  shaky condition of the Hall Mines  company, and, not Avishing to increase the difficulties of tho management, they accepted a Ioav.t  scale of Avages from tho Hall Mines  than they took from any other  property in tho district. It is ho  doubt true,  hoAvever,  that the do-  fortunes of Avar pei mit of his  return, the reception that awaits  him in Kootenay Avill eclipse the  send oil" thatAvas given him ami his  men.  .   Tiii-iii'- is one other matter in connection aviti 1 the cost ot labor at  at the Silver King mine Avhich is  AA'orthy of attention. It has been  contended by practical miners, for  some months past, that tho cost of  mining at the Silver King Avas  greater than it should be, for the  reason that the company employed  as miners men avIio Averc^not  miners. This AA'as brought out  plainly in the investigation of commissioner Clute. The evidence of  John Doherty, upon oath, was "that  " sailors and soldiers AA'ere often  "hired, but experienced miners  " AA'ero scarce; and out of four  " partners avIio had Avorked Avith  " him, tAvo had never been in a  " mine before." The reason for  this AA-as that the management of  the Hall mines paid $3 per day,  aud got poor miners, while other  mine managers paid $3.50 and got  good miners. It is not difficult for  some people to conceive that a nuur  Avho understood mining might be  .worth $3.50 per day, Avhile a man  avIio understood nothing about  mining  might not be AA'orth $3 per  St. JOSEPH'S SCHOOL  NELSON. -B. 0.   ;  A boa id ing and day school conducted by the  Skiers of SI.

N-  London, February 2.���"The future of the Avar." is the theme of an  interview. Avitli a noted authority,  published in the Daily Telegraph.  In substance it is as follows:  "What are Ave to take as the broad  lesson of the Avar ?"  "That the  combination   of   the  magazine rifle, Avith defensive-lines,  ./ has revolutionized the Avhole  practice of Avarefare as-much as did tho  invention of guupoAvder on the appearance of Napoleon.    It has long  beeii suspected that the first great.  European   struggle   '--would    prove  this, but   nobody   AA'as quite pro-  pared for the development  on the  side of the Boers  of  the  most advanced continental science.    Duller  and Methuen haA'e  been  faced  by  Doer lines twenty and thirty miles  long.    Tho field of Waterloo would  be a mere-pocket upon such spaces,  and this means  that bayonet  assaults and cavalry charges cannot  now be delivered  quick  enough to  tell."  "Wo have entered, then, upon a  Avhblly new era in the tactics of  Avar ?"  "Ves, but Avliat Avas never expected AA*as that these immense and  noArel problems Avould be" first demonstrated at the expense of the  most conservative and Avorsfc pre-  P-ired of all the considerable armies in the Avorld. A few years  ago it Avas nierely mooted by Von  derCiolt/. that trenches and barbed  Avire entanglements, in combination -with the long range rille,  Avould turn entrenched positions  into fortref'&es and reduce every  battle into a seige. The cover for  0_e defeaders, the obstaclas to the  Advance, tiie distance at Avhich the  attacking force begihsto lose, means  an exposure so prolonged as to  amount'(o the defeat of the offensive army. To the new condition  of .things the ground in South  -Africa U Avonderfully adapted.  KA'ery Kuropean power has sown its  frontier Avith fortresses. The kopjes garye precisely the same purpose  i'or the Boers."  "J Low," then,  may avc expect  to  cope Avith the new conditions?"  "By strategy ; by numbers. Not  by mere variation., in tactics. Captain Malum, in discussing the uoav  condition of naA'al Avarfare* .showed  that Avhile tactics must change,  strategy is permanent. The same  thing applies on land, Where Napoleon thought that tactics should  .."change every ten years. Without  increased mobility and superior  numbers it will lie impossible to  deal Avith the Doers."  "What is the true measure of the  adversary ?'.  It is"as"Avidely exaggerated ~uoav-i  as it Avas disparaged~befare. l'Vom  the beht judgment J can form, 1 am  conviuced that the total number of  Doers, eAren now that their last levy  has been called out, cannot much  exceed 00,000 men. But eA'en if it  Avere 80,000, look at the enormous  distances over Avhich it is spread���  from Natal to Stormberg, from  Colesburg to Kimberley and Mafeking, a curve that, if stretched out,  Avould reach across half Europe.  Much of their frontier is naked.  This is a Aveakness which nothing  could have concealed but the super-  ~ ior mobility and information of tho  Doers.  "That A\*e should have been kept  at arms' length all around such a  frontier by (50,000 men s1ioaa*s not so  much wonderful skill on their part  as wonderful simplicity upon ours.  We have done on _ e\'ery occasion  exactly what the enemy proposed  to u-4, and have scrupulously fol-  loAved a Door plan of campaign.  The Doers Avill not fight pitched  battles. Thoy cannot increase their  scanty numbers, and cannot afford  considerable losses. The first object  of tlieir tactics is to save their liA-es  ���a A'ery praiseAvorthy motive. Extreme rapidity of movement applied  to purposes of stubborn defense is  the remarkable feature of the Avar."  "We have heard much about the  Boer trenches."  "There, again, it is obvious that  the Boer dispenses Avith elaborate  methods and employs those that  can be turned to good purpose Avith  rapidity. The Doer trenches at  Modder   river,   for    instance,  are  shoAvn by the photographs, Avhich  have recently appeared, to involve  little use of the spade. They are  shalloAv hollows, the earth and  stones scooped out of them thrown  up Avith sandbags to forin a breast-  Avork, Avhich i.s the chief part of the  so-called trench. Elsewhere, as on  the Tugela, Avhere the Doers have  time to strengthen their defences at  leisure, their system of intrench-  inents may be more elaborate. British troop.--, drawn for the most  part from towns and unaccustomed  to field labor, are not good AA'ith the  spade.  "In tho new AA'ar fare tlio spade is  literally mightier than  the sword,  and will lie used oven by the assailants. "With'such  rapid means  of  -movement  and  of  rough fortifications Ave shall probably find that  before the Boer is driven from"' one  line of defense there Avillbe another  constructed  behind  him, to  Avhich  he can fall back in a few hours.   At  every critical point the  Avar would  be reduced to a succession of sieges  that AA-onld be prolonged indefinitely until  aa'C,  in  our;'turn,  had developed sufficient mobility to follow  as actively as  he  retreats.    There  is  always   tho  possibility  that an  adA'ance upon Dloemfontein might  disorganize the  entire Boer system  of   defense.       Such   a   movement  could scarcely   fail  to Avork upon  the tendency to division that must  exist  between the commandoes  of  the Orange Free State and those.of  the Transvaal."  "There is a good deal of popular  confusion upon the respective roles  of caA'alry and mounted infantry  in developing the necessary mobility  of our forces."  ���'The two  things  must be  radically   distinguished.        Under  the  neAV    conditions    of    war  the  old  heroic function  of cavalry is at air-  end,  and  the  great charges which-,  hav'c     been    the    most    thrilling  of battles  in   the  past  may  ne\rer  bo seen again.0   War on land as on  sea,  becomes  loss picturesque as it  becomes    more    business' like and  deadly.     The u_.o   _>f  the   caA'alry  against    infantry -./.resolve.,    itself  simply into a question of time.  .At  Dalakk-A'a, I   think.tho  charge   of  the (>00, from the mmncuL'the word  Avas given until all that was left  of  them reappearing out of the smoke,  occupied      scarcely       twenty-five  minutes.     In that'interval of time,'  with    modern    Aveapons.    cavalry  Avould be anihihitcd.    Eveirin  the  ten ible scene of Sedan, General   do  OUIifet led his sqtiadi'ons only to be  annihilated  by   the   Prussian  foot.  No  one  AA'ho remembers that scene  can believe that any cavalry; charge  could live against the fire of modern  rillcs and artillery.     Assaults  Avifh  the  bayonet  aie abolished by tho  t-ainc conditions.. -  "To the British army" the dim-  inibhed importance of caA'alry is a  gain. Our cavalry Avas. Avrotcliel in  the Peninsula and lias beeu generally inferior to the French. The  old role of caA'alry may still be  maintained in pursuit, though on  that point the unhappy experience  of llie Eighteenth Hussars after  Glencoo is not reassuring. In recon-  noitering, on the other hand, the  AA'ork of caA'alry is more important  than ever and more difficult. Au  enemy Avho cannot be approached  Avithin something under two miles  cannot be precisely located, and yet  it is necessary that his general position bo discovered. It would be  hard to say a\ bother there is more  ri-.k in gaining such vague information or in acting upon it,  "It may be taken, then, that mobility is, a question not of caA'alry  but of mounted infantry?"  "The object of mounting your infantry" and giving mobility to a  force is not to enable them to fight  upon horseback, but simply to  transport 'them quickly to a position Avhere thoy can fight on foot,  and if carts and automobiles Avere a  better means of transport than  horses they Avould be used instead.  General l^rench' showed the true  character of mounted infantry  Avhen he carried part of his men in  wagons in folloAving up the Doers  to Colesburg. Other things being  equal, the most mobile force must  always Avin in Avar. Rapidity of  movement is the charautei htic of  groat general0 from Cue-ar to Napoleon.  "The remarkable marching feats  of the confederates under Jackson  and Lee enabled them for a long  period to stave off surrender to the  ovoi'Avhelming forces gathered by  the North. When Sherman made  his famous march to the sea, by far  the most striking thing in the  American civil Avar, his forces were  mounted infantry.   He struck into  the heart of the hostile territory,  and Avas lost sight of for three  weeks. When he emerged he had  cut the secessionist territory in  two, and all along his track he had  swept out a swathe of ruin for sixty  miles Avide.  "We may yet have to adopt some  similar means of cutting the Doer  communications and destroying  their supplies, and it may have as  decisive an influence upon the Avar.  The increased mobility of our forces  is the indispensable condition of  their effective striking power and  recovery of tlio initiative. Hitherto  our armies' hare been like the unwieldy Spanish galleons beset by  Drake's nimble ships.  "The Avork of developing the necessary mobility in our forces Avill  hardly be accomplished Avithout difficulty."  " Nothing Avill be done in this Avar  Avithout   difficulty   or   danger.    It  must be a  considerable  period before any mobility of  ours can cope  Avith  the   mobility   of -the Doers..  They swarm into a position and dismount.    Their horses are trained to  stand at a Avord, and may be left to  a   feAV  native attendants.    I don't  see Iioav British  mounted infantry  is to dispense with a Avhole corps of  c iretakers.    We shall be fortunate  if the Doers  achieve  no more than  small and   occasional  successes iu  tho AAray of stampeding our horses.  "An illustration of this danger in  the   employment   of   mounted  infantry  Avas   giA'en   in  one  of  the  battles of "the civil AA'ar���I think it  Avas Fredericksburg.     The federals  had ridden through a .wood, Avhere  they   tethered   their   horses,   and  AA'hen dismounted  they  seized the  end   of   a   broken  bridge   on  the  Rappahannock.    Fitzhugh Lee had  perceived them, and.-AA'ith a body of  confederate cavalry he made a circuit, crossed the .river.-unobserved,  fell suddenly on the federal horses  and surprised the whole force, Avhich  in such a situation Avas helpless.  "The Doors are particularly skillful in such  strategems,  and  they  Well, rather. "We received an entire car,  (1300) of chairs last Tuesday, containing  fancy diners (in suits or otherwise), fancy  rockers in cobbler seat or wood, cheaper  dining chairs finished in golden oak and  cheaper ones still suitable for either dining  room or kitchen.

THE   MIDNIGHT   ATTACK.  I'-nicnt Smith in tho Loudon Le icier.  Ladysmith, December 12.���Probably not one Boer in ten thousand  Avas prepared to find a second  assault on their guns made within  the space of three days.. Indeed,  Ave in camp argued that it would be  uiiAvise to tempt fortune unci! the  enemy had been given time to resume his usual somnolent habits.  So it came as a surprise all round  Avhen Ave learned yesterday morning  that Surprise hill had been stormed  by the second battalion of the rifle  brigade and that guns and ammunition discovered in tlio Boer position  were blown up and destroyed. I  heard the explosions that did the  damage, but fcaAV nothing of the  feat, which AA'as performed in the  dead of night.  Colonel Metcalfe led 450 of his  men to the assault. He was accompanied by a party of artillery men  and sappers in order that the  necessary might be done in work  manlike fashion Avhen the infantry  had possessed themselves of Avhat-  oA'er armaments AA'ere to be found on  the hill.  Quitting King's Post as soon as  the moon had sunk on Monday  morning, the storming party made  straight for Surprise hill. So as not  to be distinguishabli- from the men  all officers carried rifles instead of  swords. A sufficient force to guard  against the attackers being taken in  the rear A\*as left at the bottom of  the-kopje.  Steadily the others mounted the  hill approaching the position where  the enemy Avas known to have a  gun mounted. A sentry challenged,  but before he had time to giA'e the  alarm he was rushed upon and  bayonetted. As they closed in  nearer and nearer the gun the men,  Avho could only see a few yards  ahead, exchanged the countersign,  "Second II. B.,"AvheneA*er a -creeping figure emerged from the darkness.  The Boors must have heard this  signal, for as our-, fellows got near  the Avork'severai*7_Buerh, Avero di_>-  covered using tliu.-3._me countersign  to approach the B ille^ at close i|iiar-  ters.

By this time the Boers Avere in."  full flight. They AA'ero carrying out  tlieir threat that they Avould not  stand by the guns, believing that  their guerilla methods Avith trusty  Mausers Avere much more  effective.  When colonel. Metcalfe charged  his men into the earthworks only  four Boers remained,  A disabled gun avjis found, together Avith a new one the enemy  had prepared to get into position.  Both Avere blasted with the "same  charge. A quantity of ammunition  was also destroyed.  Unfortunately the fuse of one of  the blasting charges failed to net,  and the return to camp Avas consequently delayed.   The  mishap did  Ward Bros.

From  eA'ery kopje a terrible musketry lire,  was poured in upon the brave fel-  Ioavs Avho had just performed a brilliant feat of valor. * A quick-firing  machine gun, throAving 2-pound  shells in rapid succession, came into  play.  One of the projectiles pitched  rigliD in front of lieutenant Ferguson, and, bursting, its splinters  caught him -simultaneously, in-chest,  and stomach and smashed his thigh  and shin. The poor young officer  only lived a few minutes.  As the rearmost company, under  command of c.iptain Paley, marched  doggedly homeward, 'peppered by  the enemy from every side, it found  itself confronted by about fifty  Boers firing from the shelter of a  flecp gully. "Hush there Avith the  bayonet, lads!" shouted captain  Paley. Our fellows tore up to the  bank of the gully. A tremendous  fusilade greeted their adA'ance!  The oflieer in command, _ii"-t in  the charge, was the first to fall.  Bullets struck him iu the chest and  thigh, and ho rolled dinvn the  slope to the feet'of the Boers " like  a rabbit," as he said himself after-  ward.->.

Crav, M. I)., in Amcrii.an Journal of  Healtli, New York..  The vast competition which every  year grows fiercer in eA'ery  line of  industry  has unquestionably  been  productiA'e of certain evils, among  Avhich we must  include the  lowering of price and the  corresponding  loAverihg of the standard of quality.  At present AA'e confine the  application of this remark  to the case of  food   products.      It   is   unhappily  true that this tendency to turn out  the aA-erage supply of food products  Avith reference mainly  to disposing  of it quiek.lyat reduced prices has  resulted iu  a  general depreciation  of quality which can but affect the  cumniunity   at   largo   injuriously..  ltAvould'be far better for people to  pay more for what they use   than  to suffer the effect of using Avhat, as  they should knoAV  themselves, cannot be first class at the price  they  give for it.    This great question of  the purity of food does.not receive  anything  like the attention it  deserves,   and   for  that   reason   the  American  Journal   of Health  and  other publications-of the same class  are forced to perpetually agitate it  in public interest.  Ta\'o duties there -are for us to  perform in this most important  matter-���to sound a Avarning against  that false idea of economy AA'hich  xu'ges people to place cheapness iirst  in their selection <of food, and to  grant their fullest meed of praise  to those pure food'-.products .'whose  use is conducive to hygienic results  in the household. In this article it  is our purpose to quote an instance  ��� where such praise truly belongs,  that of the B. k K. Rolled Oats, by  the Brackman-Ker Milling Company, Limited, of Victoria, British  Columbia. We have examined the  claim of this product with the most  reassuring results, and hence are  anxious to call special attention to  it. With a view to serving the  interests of our readers we made a  systematic iiiA'estigation, obtaining  .samples of the goods from the  store.*, purchasing these in the  ordinary manner,"so that aa'o might  lie certain Ave were testing the  Sitme article Avhiclf i.s regularly supplied to the market. When rthese  were given to the  expert  analysts  connected AA'ith our chemical laboratory, they underwent a  rigorous  series of tests of purity.    To these*  tests  the  B. ,k K. Rolled  Oats  responded in  the most   remarkable  way, showing that there is not the  least trace of adulteration in  their  composition, and that they possess  eminent value, considered as  a nutritive food product.    Accordingly,  Ave add this highly meritorious product to our published list of  those  Avhich    housekeepers    CA'eryAvhere  should "use Avith perfect confidence.  The B. k Iv. Rolled Oats are among  tho products Avhose real  excellence  and entire innocence of any form of  adulteration  guarantee  not- alone  protection against the perils of impure kitchen   supplies, but also an  actual saving  to the  housekeeper.  And as a further caution avc ascertained  that  the  manufacturers of  the B. k K. Rolled Oats are a firm  of the  highest   reputation,  avIiosb  brand is a diploma  of merit.
