 THE VICTORY WAS BOUGHT BY A'  Heavy Loss in Officers.  London, October 22.���The list of  officers killed and wounded at the battle  between Gleneoe and Dundee, in Natal,  shows that, although the British victory  was complete, it was bought at a heavy  price. In addition to sir William Penn  Symons, who it is feared is mortally  wounded, two colonels, three captains  'and five lieutenants ���wore killed, and a  colonel, three "majors, six captains and  ten lieutenants were wounded. This  heavy loss among the oflicei's was duo, as  the latest dispatches from the front  show, to their valiant but insensate con-  duet in sticking to the traditions of the  British army, and refusing to use the  cover of which the men availed themselves in storming the Boer's position on  the summit of the Kopje. The wai'  office announces that thirty-one noncommissioned officers and men were  killed and 1��1 were wounded.  Among the rank and file, the Hussars  liad 7 wounded; the artillery 1 killed  and 8 wounded ; the Leicestershire regiment had I wounded; the King's Rifles  had 11 killed and o'S wounded ; the Irish  Fusiliers 14 killed and 30 wounded; the  Dublin Fusiliers* _ killed aud 41 wounded;  and the Natal police 2 wounded.  The war office has issued the following  list of casualties in the battle, received in  a despatch from the general commanding  ing in Natal, sir George Stewart  White,  dated Ladysmith, October 21st. 4.20 a.m.:  Divisional  staff,  genei-al  William  Penn  Symons, mortally wounded  in  the  stomach;   colonel  C   E.

Nkw Yoiuc, October 22.���The London  correspondent of the World says: One of  the most impressive scenes eA'er enacted  in the house'of commons was witnessed  there on Friday ni.,'ht. The Irish members, with John Dillon and Michael Da-  vitb.4.ii the forefront, were offering the  strongest resistance at every step to the  government's war policy. Their open  avowals of sympathy with the Boers and  their reiterated charges that tho war was  deliberately provoked had aroused the  ���fiei'eest resentment and hostility among  -tho-miiii.stei'ialists,_and_tliC���pioeeedings.  threatened to terminate in some violent  outbreak of .passion. Both sides wore  getting rapidly beyond control Avhen  Colonel Kenyon Slaney, a Tory membei-  with a record of conspicuous bravery on  tho field of battle, lose, and in a few  simple words, spoken with profound  emotion, prayed for a truce to the contention for that night out of respect to  the dead and dying Englishmen, Irishmen and Scotchmen lying on the battlefield, as well as for tlie dead and dying  of their gallant foes. The effect was instantaneous. The clamor was stilled,  and Mr. Dillon, acknowledging the manly  spirit of colonel Slaney's speech, which  recognized the valor of England's foes,  appealed to the Irish members to fall in  with the suggestion. Then Arthur Balfour acknowledged the generous attitude  of the Irishmen, and read, a touching  telegram announcing that general  -Symons, to whose gallantry the British  success was due, was mortally wounded.  The whole money for the war was then  voted, and without further discussion  the liouse adjourned.  The Change is Becoming Marked.  London, October 22.���The list of officers and aristocratic society men. killed  in battle at Gleneoe preludes the disappearance of many well known names  from the roll of the English nobility.  The recent cable mentioning those prominent in society who are rushing to war  ought now to be supplemented by further names. The change in social gatherings, parliament and dancing parties has  this week become more marked through  absence of noted figures. The turf is  languishing froni the want of its usual  supporters. Every day we read names  familiar to turfites who arc being speeded  to Jictive service. Among the latest de-,  par.turcs are colonels Page, and Fludiger,  who were very much identified with the  Newmarket races. Colonel Fludiger, wlro  goes out iu command of the .Scots Guards,  is one' of the survivors of tho " Robert  the Devil" brigade, and for some time  has been a member of the committee of  Tattcrsalls. Colonel Brabazon, who is to  have a cavalry command, is the un-  dawnted sportsman who won the grand  military gold cup with King Arthur.  A DIVIDEND OF A QUARTER OF A  Million Dollars Declared.  ItosKlnnri jYlin'cr.  The payment of the  first  Le Roi dividend of a epiarter  of  a  million  dollars,  the Center Star flotation for five millions,  and  the   regular   monthly  dividend   of  .$20,250, paid by the War Eagle, all make  very good  reading for the past week's  record.    In addition will  be found some  vei'y interesting notes on all of the three  mines.    The fact that the  Center Star  flotation  of   1,320,000  shares  was oversubscribed by 50,000 shares without hearing  from  the '"English   or  the  western  subscribers,'"must be exceedingly gratifying to the OAvners of the  mine, and the  ucavs Avill  be  received in Rossland Avith  pleasure.    When   the   Center  Star. AA-as  sold to the Gooderham-Blackstock syndicate by Oliver Durant and his associates,  the main showing  in  the Avorkings, and  the one that largely fixed the price realized, wjis the ore chute iu the main tunnel, about 1200 feet in  from the surface.  At the time  of   the  sjile  the  Avidth  of  the    ledge    was    a    clean    eight   feet.  Some Aveeks   ago   Mr.  Hastings  stated  that -. this     ledge     had     increased   to  sixteen  feet,  and   yesterday  the   same  authorities stated that the increase had  continued, until, at the present .Avriting,  the Avidth runs all the Avay from 25 to .30  feet.    The average value of this ore taken  right across  the face  of the  ledge,  as  shoAvn by shipments and repeated assays,  shows a little better than $20 in gold.  In  the note on the War Eagle it Avill be seen  Iioav very high the ore is at the  250-foot  level.    Thefjgures giA'en -will be a revelation concerning this portion of the mine.  ��� The' short close down of the, Le Roi for  soA-en days has enabled the management  to so alter the. main shaft that its capacity has been doubled, and in  future the  shipments from the mine. Avorkings- will  aver-jgo about .400; tons _per  day. * The,  electrical compressor at the  War  Eagle  has run more  smoothly' this Aveek,, and  both sides of the big  machine  liave  run  steadily   for the  past "six  days.    With  better arrangements for poAver  the War  Eagle   and   Centre   JStar-   output , Avill  steadily     increase.      . Altogether   - the  outlook     for   the    camp   generally    as  the   week * closes   is decidedly cheering.  BRITAIN'S VICTORY AT ELANDSLAAGTE WAS DEARLY PURCHASED  Boor "Forces Com*oletely Routed and General Kock Killed.  CAMERON RECEIVED SIX YEARS  Por Burning the Columbia Hotel.  W. G. McMyun, mining recorder and  chief constable at Midway, is registered  at the Hume.' Mr. McMyun is on his Avay  home from Kamloops, where ho Avas attending the court of assize, Avhich Avas  held by Mr. justice Drake. Mr. McMyun  A\'as interested in the Columbia arson  cases, in which Robert Cameron and  Charles Mullen were charged with hav-  iTig~"limi'JTed down" ~tlle"hew- Columbia"  hotel at Columbia.  These cases created Avidespread interest  throughout the Boundary district, and  Avhen the prisoners were brought to trial  there appealed to be plenty of money to  conduct their defense. The cases for the  crown Avere looked after by attornoy-  genernl Henderson and A. II. McNeill,  Q.C. of Rossljiud,' Avhile E. P. Davis, Q.C.  of Vancouver, W. Ii, -Whittaker of Kamloops and J. S. M. Morrison of Grand  -Forks conducted the defense.  The trial of tlie prisoner" Cameron occupied but two hours. He was found  guilty and sentenced to siy years' imprisonment.   "  The case against Mullen occupied tAA'O  days. Cameron's    stoiy    was    that  he      received      $250      from      Mullen,-  Avho       was        employed        in the  billiard room of the Yale hotel at Grand  Forks, to set fire to -the building. This  was the chief evidence against Mullen.  Against this the e\-ideiice of a bartender  at the Yale avjis taken to the effect that  about the time Cameron said he received  the money from Mullen he had served  drinks to a party in a room at the Yale  in Avhich Avere. ex-mayor Man ley, Cameron aud Mullen. On one trip to the  room he saw Avhat he thought aa^is about  .$250 lying on the table, Avhich Cameron  proceeded to put in his pocket. The  jury evidently did not believe Cameron's  story that he received the money from  Mullen and acquitted the accused. Ex-  mayor Miinluy is still out of the country.

The whole  force Avas under general French, Avith  colonel John Hamilton commanding the  infantry. I Avas present in -person from  3.40 p. ni. till 8.30 p.m., but did not assume direction of the fight; which  Avas left' in the hands of general French.  Although- desultory fighting took place  early imthe day, the real action did not  begin 'until 3:30 p. m. At that hour the  Boers held a position of very exceptional  strength on a rocky hill, about a mile  and a half southeast of Elandslaagte station. At 3:30 p. m. our guns took position on a j'idge 1000 yards from the  Boers, whose guns at once opened fire.  This fire Avas generally Avell directed, but  somewhat high. Contrary to previous  experiences, their shells burst AA'ell. The  Imperial Light Horse moved toAvards the  left of the enemy's position and two  squadrons of the Fifth Lancers toAvards  the right. During the artillery duel  mounted Boers rushed out from their  left and- engaged tlie- Imperial Light  Horse. Iu a few minutes the enemy's  guns ceased firing,'and our artillery Avas  turned on the mounted Boers avIio had  engaged-the Imperial Light .Horse, and  avIio fell back after the artillery changed  position. Our infantry advanced to the  attack, supported by our. guns in tho  second position. The DeA'oushiros held.  the enemy in front, AA'hilc the Manchester  Regiment and Gordon Highlanders  turned his left flank. Tho Boer guns,  although temporarily silenced, invariably  opened fire again on the slightest opportunity, and were" served with great  courage.  After severe fighting our infantry carried the position. This AA'as accomplished  at (5:30 p. m., the enemy standing his  ground to the last Avith courage and  tenacity. TheFifth Lancers and a squadron of the Fifth Dragoon Guards charged  thrice through the retreating Boers in  tho dark, doing considerable execution.  Wc captured the Boer camp, Avith tents,  Avagons, horses and also tAvo guns. The  Boer losses Avere very considerable, including a number of AA'ounded and nn-  wounded prisoners. Among the former  are general Jan Kock and Piefc-JoiTbeFiT,"  the latter a jiephew. of commandant-  general Joubert. One goods train with  supplies for the regiment Avas .recovered.  Our loss, I regret to say, Avas heavy. It  is roughly computed at 150 killed and  Avounded.  The collection of the Avounded  over a  lai'ge area in tho dai'k and tho arrangements for sending them in have thus far  occupied our time and attention. A full  list will go to you later. Our Avounded  and those of the enemy are now arriving  by trains. Beside the -Boers, Ave have  many Hollanders, Germans and other  prisoners of mixed nationalities*.'

The people of Nelson are not lacking in  public spirit and are just as anxious to  sIioav their, appreciation of the self-sacrifice that is being made by our volunteers  as are the people of any other toAvn"in all  the Dominion. This feeling is seeking  expression iu the same practical way  that has been adopted in every toAvn and  city in Cauada lucky enojigh to be called  on to furnish men for active service in  her majesty's forces in South Africa in  defense of the queen and empire. It is  Avell knoAvn that the only reward of the  men Avho have been selected is glory, the  pay on actiA'e service being such as to  leave little margin for traveling and out-  of-pocket expenses. It is felt that no  monetary consideration can weigh in a  question of patriotism.

BOER PLANS _WERE WELL LAID  Say the Experts.  Nkw York, October 22.���Cabling from  London to the Tribune,  Mr.  Foi'd comments as follows on the battle at  Gleneoe: The  intense, sober satisfaction  expressed throughout Great Britain  today  has common  sense  behind it.    Military  men  say  that  Natal, by  reason of the  Boer superiority,   both in  numbers  and  disposition on the ground, AA'as the Aveak  spot, and in Natal general Symons' small  Jind separate command Avas the  AA'eakest  point..    All  that .was   asked,  even   of  general White, AA'as that he should entrench   himself as  strongly :is  possible,  and  guard  Natal.and  his own  position  against   the  invaders.      When    general  White av as able, a few days  ago,  to announce that he could  withstand  a  Boer  assault, and the  experts,  considered his  position,   confirmed the Natal  general's  opinion.    It seemed that his  Avoi'k  AA'as  done .and Avell done.     It AA'as felt that all  connected with the business of inflicting  chastisement might be  left   to  general  Buller   and   the   army   corps'   on   their  arrival.    It is not known that the  small  force and  the weiik point  have  turned  formidable ; that an atlmirably  planned  :  assault has  not  only been repulsed, but y  that   the assailants have been  sharply y  smitten, and the Boer plans of campaign  have   been   completely . baffled.     These  plans are -warmly commended in military  circles here, where  it is remarked that  the  Boer  scheme  aviis eminently sound  scientific.    As the. plan is explained  by  experts, genei-al White's force at  Ladysmith was to haA'e been held  by the demonstrations of the Free State Boei-s  on  the Avestern side to prevent   reinforcements being sent to .Gleneoe,Avhich Avould  be   isolated   by   cutting    the    railway  betAA'een it and Ladysmith ; then a large  force Avould converge  on : Gleneoe.   All  this-, was  done.     The   railway was out  several days ago, and the appearance on  the Avestern side of the Free State troops  induced  general  White to hope,  in his y?  own words, that they would " come  lieary  enough for me to strike a bloAV," is  how -  explained. -..-���       ,:.':s., -^.y..

The mines of Rossland are evidently-  worked by mining men, and tlieir working is n' benefit to the whole province;  Avhile, on the other hand, the mines of  the Slocan are evidently managed by  politicians, avIio Avould rather discredit a  government than help out the province.  Tuk number of places at Avhich liquor  is sold should not be increased in Nelson.  Theie are already tAventy-oue hotels aud  saloons authoi izecl by law to sell liquor  at* retail, or one phice for eveiy'250 of  population. There is nothing in existing  laws or regulations to pi event any holder  of a liquoi license from opeuing and ruu-  niiig a music hall in connection Avith a  hotel or saloon. Jf such a pL'icc should  be opened jind an admission chaigpd,  then the license fee lequhed to be paid  by theatres Avould have to be paid;  in ease no admission AA'as charged, then  no license fee could be collected. Is it  wise to pass specitil bylaAvs for such purposes? J^ylaws of cities, like Acts of the  legislatme or of parliament,'should be  general, not special. Alde-'man IliiJyer  Avould be acting wise if ho withdrew the  music-hall bylaw.

"Yes, it is true," answered Lnurn, as  she took the proffered seat and laid n side  her wrap, "J have resigned from the club,  and I never intend to play another game.  1 consider whist one of the curses of modern society."  " 'Jloly Sb. Francis, what a change is  here!' " quoted Miss Meredith. "Is it a  penance, it joke, or what ?"  "It is dead earnest."  "Really? Why, Laura, it hasn't beeu  ii month since you won the championship  and declared in all the enthusiasm of victory that there never was a more glorious game than whist."  "I know; but I have reformed, aud, if I  can, 1 shall persuade you to follow.  Whist is spoiling too many fine women."  "Of course you aro nothing if not extreme. What earthly harm can there be  in quiet, respectable whist as we women  play it? 1 think it is most satisfying,  most intellectual. As the summer girl  says, 'This is so sudden.' "  "Not at all;  it is the result of days of  serious reflection."  "And the reflection ?"  "Comes from���but it is quite a story;  have you au engagement?"  "This is league afternoon, but we don't  play until half-past three. Tell me all  about it."  "I will begin fit tlie beginning. Though  I had some twinges, I1 believe my fii&t  real misgiving was owing to a visit from  Mrs. Moreland. She called to ask if I  were ill���I hadn't been near her for six  months. ' I excused my neglect by saying  that- I was president of the American  Leads, champion of tlie Trophy, and  hadn't an hour I could call my own.  She said nothing to this, but soon took  leave. I could see she was hurt; and, of  ' course, that disturbed me. Then I  thought: 'Here is my dead mother's best  pl friend and mine ; no oue has ever been as  good to me as Mrs. Moreland ; yet I havo  let iif oy-two pieces of pasteboard keep me  from her for six months.' "  "But surely you were not playing iill of  the time?"  "I played at lea^t oue. game a day, and  when nob playing  I  was studying.    In  wliist, jis in everything else, one has to  keep up.    And thou I was obliged to rest;  there is? nothing so fatiguing.''  "That is true.    But go on."  "After thinking about Mrs. Moreland I  begjin to notice lots of things.    I was neglecting  the housekeeping.    At night I  was  too tired  to read the news to my  _ fatheK__I_ti'ied_to, but nodded_ovor every  paragraph.    I  had let  the mending  go,  hadn't  had a needle  in  my  hands for  mouths.    In current literature I was a  back    number���except    in    the   whist.  periodicals; I was well up in those.    Then  at the games "themselves there woi-e little  things that���well���were not nice,"  "What sort of things?"  "Somehow all of us were different.    Instead of being well-mannered, thoughtful, and considerate, we had become rude,  intolerant, and uncharitable."  "Sio-ely not!"  "I will give you an instance. You  kuow Mrs. Huntj what a dear little shy  woman she is? A Veil, she caught the  fever about a month ago, had lessons  and was completely fascinated. I was at  several games where she took part; it  mortifies me to recall them. Her dearest  friends maneuvered to avoid playing  with her; the expression of the unsuccessful avjis far from gay. On one occasion I  played at the samo table with her, though  I wasn't her partner. If you could have  seen the veiled impatience and ennui at  that table! Mrs. Hunt did wonderfully  well for a beginner; of course she didn't  know the first thing about real whist.  We prompted aud advised her, with the  result that she forgot the little she knew  and made the most dreadful mi&plays.  Her partner was quite sharp with her.  Something pathetic iu her innocent eyes  brought me to my senses. I pi-essed her  hand under the table. It was like ice.  She was actually trembling with neruoua-  ness and mortification. Now, isn't that  a pretty state of affairs���a lot of women  giving theii* best efforts to a game of  cards that makes them ill-mannered, unfeeling, almost brutal? Mrs. Hunt's is  not an unusual case."  "I am forced to admit that it is so common, that I have never thought of looking  at it in that way."  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Si\aguay, U. S., Atlin,, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yut\ot\ District.  "Another point. Think, dear, of the  time that you aud I have wasted on  whist."  "Don't call it wasted. You arc a magnificent player, and no real perfection can  be wasted."  "You are wrong there. I have spent  years on whist, in the same time I could  have learned several languages, and a  new language means an introduction to  what is best in ji foreign country."  But you have learned the king of  games."  "J am not at all sure .about that. The  chances in whist run up to the hundreds  of thousands. 1 see something new in  every game I play. Tlie niles and  methods and leads are continually changing. Unless you give your whole time to  it you arc left behind with nothing ; for  whist letids to nothing else."  "How can you say that? I can mention a dozen things that wliist teaches���  analysis, for instance: reasoning; the  power to plan and execute."  "Analysis of what ? Leads. Why my  partner played so and so. Adversary  was forced for such and such a purpose.  Reasoning? If I play the queen will it  draw my adversary's king ? As for plans,  they are all the same : to make the ad-  vcrsaries lose. A nice sort of training  this for the human mind. It is imbecile,  and the sad part is that all the women of  the country go mad on the subject."  "Do be reasonable, Laura. Plow can  whist really injure society?"  "It the first place, it kills conversation,  and that's an old story. In Prance and  England, when everybody became whist-  crazy, it's a matter of history that conversation, before most brilliant, was overshadowed. Whist had taked its place,  and the salon was swept away."  "A real calamity, I grant, but I do not  believe whist caused it."  "Of course it did. People who play  whist never talk, and that leads to unsociability���hinders tho forming of new  friendships'. Whist-players uot only  cling to one little coterie, but, if possible,  to one partner. With people you see  every clay there is little to talk about,  none of the give and-take of quick-witted  strangers A card-playing household, is  never an intelligent household. There is  no doubt in my mindEthat the fall of the  salon was ov* ing to whist."  "'Now that I think of it, I haven't made  any now friends since I took up whist."  "I have not only failed to make new  ones, but, as you see, have neglected the  old���and not only Mends, but kindred.  My own sisters complain that they never  see me except when I want something;  which brings in another effect of whist���  oeliishness."  "What else ? Don't you admit a single  virtue? I suppose the memory is not  strengthened by wliist."  "Whist is no real exercise for the  memory."  "Oh, Laura I Think of yourself; think  of the playei'S who can remember every  oue of the fifty-two cards and wlio played them, who can go back and recount  the whole battle step by step!"  "Do 3rou call that wonderful? Ajiy  "child "can do- better. Tlfere-are"boys of  eight in the spelling-class of the fifth-  ward city school who can recite from two  hundred to two hundred and fifty words  iu their printed order. Their teacher  told me so and proved it."  CORPORAfiJ[rF~THFciTrOf NELSON  NOTICE  TO MUNICIPAL  VOTERS.

Excuse my laughing, but  you are too absurd. Now you are "joking."  "Not a bit of it. At the first stage of  my regeneration I noticed how old all of  us were looking. Every proficient whist-  player, even the youngest, had a deep  furrow between the brows'; it is one of  the first penalties we pay.
