LADYSMITH GARRISON IN DANGER
It Has Been Weakened.
London, October 2.*>.—A dispatch from
Ladysmith, Natal, dated yesterday afternoon, has just been received. It is a
literal repetition of Capetown's Gleneoe
advices of yesterday, and it is regarded
as somewhat ominous that nothing has
since been received respecting the result,
especially when viewed in tlie light of
lord AVolseley's statement that general
Yule's forces felt it neces.sji.ry to retire;
from Dundee to Gleneoe .'function. Gen-
oral Yule, evidenely is in a tight corner,
as he now has or had to faco the main
Boer army under general Joubert.
General sir George White, the British
commander-in-chief in Natal, will undoubtedly detach part of the force which
was so victorious at Elandslaagte to his
assistance. Such a detachment, however,* will leave Ladysmith poorly protected against tho threatned attack from
the west, as 'general Hunter on Saturday
wired that the departure of the force to
Elandslaagte left him with only a couple
of bsittalious of regulars, a mountain battery and 500 Natal Arolunteers to defend
the town which is the military base iu
North Natal. Further news therefore, is
anxiously awaited.
The Casualities at Elandslaagte.
London,October.23.—The Gordon Highlanders lost five non-commissioned ofli-
cers and fifteen .men, with-'fifteen noncommissioned officers and sixteen men
wounded in. the engagement at Elandslaagte.. The'.-'.Firsf Leicestershire regiment lost lieutenant flahna, killed. The
Gordon Highlanders killed were : , Major
Denne, lieutenant Monroe, lieutenant
Murray and lieutenant Barbour ;. wound-'
ed: .Lieutenant-colonel Dick Gunning-
ham, major Wright, captain Haldane,
captain Buchanan, captain Johnston,
captain Findlay,-'lieutenant Campbell,
jind lieutenant Hennessy. The total
number of casualties now stands 42 killed
and 155 wounded. The grand total
is 197.
TESUDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 24, 1899.
PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.
y
DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR; WEEKLY,
Suspended From the Privileges of the House.
London, October 23;—During the course
of today's proceedings, while the house
.was discussing the'report; on the.-supple-'
mentary estimates, Patrick O'Brien, member for Kilkenny City, declared that the
hands of the British secretary of state
for the colonies, Mr. Chamberlain, were
as. much stained with blood as those of
any  murderer  who  ever  mounted  the
censorship. In the meanwhile I do not
consider the situation as bad for the
Boors as made out by the English telegrams, Avhicli .are intended for the English public and market, ;md probably aie
too optimistic. The fact that the Boers
retired in order to reform later does not
imply defefit. It is part of their tactics,
and does not prove that they have suffered seriously."
BRITAIN'S GREAT PREPARATIONS
Tor the Transvaal Trouble.
iioNDON, October 23.—Owing to the
fact that the government has stopped all
news of the movement or disposition of
the troops in -South Africa, it is impossible to arrive at the strength of the
foi'ces under the command of sir George
White in Natal with any degree of jic-
curacy. It is safe to say, however, that
with the Natal and Indian troops, the
British force amounts to over 13,000 men.
Prior to the landing ofthe Indian troops,
there were in Natal: 'Two cavalry regiments of about 1000 men; three battalions of the lloyal Field Artillery, with
eighteeh guns ; one -mountain battery of
four guns; six battalions of infantry,
about 5000 men; a mounted infantry
force, technical troops and about 2000
local ti'oops.
The Indian regiments have all arrived,
unless they aie vei'y much■■ overdue.
They should increase the Natal forces by
at least 0000 men. They comprise three
cavalry regiments, of   about  1500 men;

"EJbes Hot Consider the Situation. Bad.
Brussels, October 23.—-Dr. Leyds, the
.diplomatic represeiitative of the Transvaal in Europe, is quoted in an interview
as saying: "It is difficult to give an
opinion on the battles fought at Gleneoe
and Elandslaagte, as the despatches all
emanate from- British sources." He is
said to have added: " My'own- despatches
liave not arrived, probably owing to the
three batteries of the Royal Field Artillery, with eighteen guns, and four battalions of infantry of .about 4000 men.
Of the home brigade fully one-half
have Jiri'ived in Africa, and all are due
to arrive by the end of the present
month. This brigade ,comprises three
batteries of the Royal Field Artillery"-
and four battalions of infantry of about
3500men; Thus by the end of the
mouth'sir-George White should have in.
the field an army of 22,000 men, of which
2500 will.be cavalry, 12,000 to 13,000 Of

Sketch of Boer Character.
Capr Town, October 23.—Tho Boers
are an entirely misunderstood race.
War might have been averted had
education taken the place of diplomacy. It would, mayhap, have been a
lengthy process, but there is little doubt
but that it would have been efficacious—
eventually.
The Boer is the spoiled child of the
veldt, Jind his ignorance is so colossal, so
unimaginable by those who. have not
lived with liim, that it seems sadder than
sad to have to punish him like a naughty
schoolboy. '
A pen dipped in the milk of human
kindness would find it difficult to'write
many nice things about the Boer char--
iicter. True, he is a bi-ave man, up to a
certain point; a hardy pioneer, a devout
man according to his lights, which are
woefully dim, and a patriot in the best
sense of the word. To these qualifications
must, however, in till fairness, be added
that lie is a liar, a cheat, and a rogue, if
he gets the chance; that his morals are
of the lowest, and that his .word''is not
trustworthy.
Stephanus Johannes Paulus Kruger is
hardly a representative Boer. He is too
cle\rer, too sincere and too stubborn.
Kruger is an old man now.
seventy-five this week. Not
any physical attribute, save a
of sight, which forces him to
gaiuly Chinese goggles, he has a fatal
lack of appreciating political perspective.
A case-hardened Conservative, the least
departure from the order of things as
they have beeu sets him clamoring about
the influx of the stranger and the swamping of his burghers. " My country, is in
danger, my burghers are liable to be outvoted. -..' My God will: look:,after me in
time of trouble." Everythihgr in the oligarchical possessive case, y   ;        :
Krugei-  does  not hate the  Uitlander,
as  a Uitlander, as, do many of his burghers.    He lias found  them too useful,
his  Nellinapius, his Vortsmann  and  his

NELSON'S SOLDIERS GET A GOOD
Sendoff on Leavine; for South Africa.
In   accordance    with   the   suggestion
made in yestei'day's Tiiiiiune, ii  number
of citizens met in tlie office of  the tramway company at  ten  o'clock yesterdiiy
{morning to make - arrangements  to  give
■the  volunteers  from  Nelson  for  South
'Africa a befitting sendoff. Mayor Neelands
occupied the chair, and explained the objects  of  the meeting.     Frank  Fletcher
was made secretary and John Houston
treasurer. After an interchange of views,
it wtis decided to appoint two committees
to take the matter in hand.    One  to arrange for a suitable presentation, and the
other to solicit  subscriptions.     The  following named, were appointed on  the arrangement committee:   Mayor Neelands,
A. H. Buchanan, J. Roderick Robertson,
and Frank  Fletcher.     The subscription
committee was made up of the treasurer,
W. J. Wilson, Hamilton Byers, C.pHalifax
Hall,  and "F. W.  Peters.     The meeting
then adjourned until four  o'clock in the
afternoon.
The subscription committee procured
lists and left one at each of the following
named places: Bank of Montraal, Bank
of British Columbia,-'.'Merchants Bank of
Halifax, Hotel Hume, Madden House,
Tremont Hotel and Phair Hotel, and
Messrs. Hall and Peters "took the West
ward and. Messrs.''Byers'and Houston the
East ward. The following is the result
bf tlieir united, efforts. It is only fair to
state in this connection, that"-'many who,
uo doubt, would have subscribed Avere
not in when the members of -the soliciting committee called at * tlieir.. places of
business, and the ■■members".'of the committee reported but few refusals :

Selous, Hall, Turner, and West. T. G.
Proctor sung "Tommy Atkins," and W.
F. Brougham announced that seats were
reserved for the rifle company at the
opera house, Avhere a concert was to be
given in the evening. "Rule Britannia"
was then sung with ji swing that made
the rafters jingle, and the meeting came
to an end.
In the evening, lieutenant Beer marched
the rifle company to the opera house.
During their stay several patriotic songs
were" rendered by Mrs. 'Brougham, and a
speech was made by sir Charles llibbert
Tupper. The compjuiy were then
inarched to the C. P. R. depot to meet
the llos'slahd volunteers.
Upon the arrival of the train the Rossland men—-W. Hart-McHarg,  J.  R. Rey
and  Mil ward Crooke--were presented to
lieutenant   Beer   by   judge   Forin   and
takeii  to  the  armory.      Here the  procession was formed,    It  was  headed  by.
the;smelter band.    Then came the Nelson
and Rossland volunteers in Oliver outfits
followed by the local company of Rocky
Mountain Rangers and -upwards of two
hundred citizens.    The band struck up
"The Red, White and Blue" and as the
procession   moved   off .toward  the  city
wharf the citizens joined in to the mimr
b'er of at  least three  hundred.    As the
procession   approached the   wharf   the
steamer Moyie drew in to the dock and a
salute of dynamite announced her arrival.
The yOlunteeiys then boarded the steamer
and the band struck up "The Girl I Left
Behind  Me."     Half an  hour  was  then
spent   in   saying  good-bye  to Nelson's
representatives on the Canadian  contingent, after which  the band played the
national authem and several" returned to
the city.    The greater number* however,
remained until captain Hodgins  arrived.
He wtis given a reception which he will
not  soon   forget,   and   as   the steamer
swuug_out into the .current.'.the departing
volunteers    were    giveny. three    hearty
cheers and: a tiger.       ^
W.Hart-McHarg;of Rossland was a
lieutenant in the Rossland company of
rifles. He yolunteered for service Avhen
the first call came.    When word was re-
THE CIVIL DOCKET BEING HEARD
By Mr. Justice Martin.
The hearing of the case, of cbntractdr .
Kerr against P. Burns & Co. for $600 loss
of profits and other  damages, occupied
the entire session of the court yesterday
and the case  was  not closed  when  the
court rose.    In this case Kerr is suiugfor
loss of profits and damages for breach of
conti-act.    He  was  the  lowest  teuderer
for the work of putting in the basement
bf tho Burns block, but it is alleged that
before the conti'act  was  signed  certain
changes  were  made in   the work  over
which the contractor and and  the architect fell out, with the result that fresh
tendei's were called foi- and the work let
to other parties.    S.  S. -Taylor,  Q. C, is
conducting the case for  Kerr and  Mjic- _
donald & Johnson for the defendants.
Captain A. E.  Hodgins,  the architect,
upon the building,  was  in  the  box the
greater  part-of yesterday,  and  during
his examination had quite a tilt with the y
plaintiff's counsel.     He stated that :he
had done all iii his power to secure the
work for Kerr, as he did not wish tp see yi
one  firm  of contractors  monopolize all y
the woi-k in the city, t When the changes y
were inade in the work ; he stated -'that ^
Kerr agreed to make some reductions in  y
his contract price, but afterwards denied
that he had so agi-eed,  after  which tlie
iircliitect   di-opped   him.,.-    During    Mi-.
Hodgihs' examination, Mr. Taylor made
some   uncomplimentary comment   upon y
the witness'-testimony.    The witness re-  ^
sen ted.  this   treatment   and   the   court ;
upheld him. •*■'-. V
The juroi's in the case are -iC. :■, F. Freer y

A special sitting" of the court, was held y
in the evening for the purpose of taking y;;

Many men who  never held or struck a drill, or shoveled a  ton of dirt in ji sluice box, and who can't  tell a stall from a slope will speak very  learnedly about mines and mining and  frequently thi-ow out ji shingle with the  legend "mine expert" lettered upon it.  Several years ago these ���'experts" could  be found in nearly every little mining  camp h1 the northwest Tliey are not so  plentiful these latter days. Men who invest in mines .are more particular in  selecting their mine managers than they  were in the early mining days. They  have learned by a dearly bought experience, that "book learning," while all j'ight  enough as an equipment, does not fully  prepare a man to assume responsible  positions in mine management. lie must  or should lnwe a practical knowledge of  mining to acquire tho full measure of  success in his calling.  It is not generally known that the first  copper mining in California wtis done  over a third of ji eeutury tigo. A Spin  Jose company bought what wtis thought  to be a very encouraging copper prospect  in El Dorado county. A steam hoist  jind buildings were erected over the  property,, au expert was employed and  work begun. A three or four inch lead  of copper oi'o was followed down through  the hardest kind of granite for something like, 300 I'eot, and then the whole  proposition was abandoned The lead  wouldn't widen or get richer, though the  "expert" predicted, tit every bucketfull  ofr rock' lioibted, that a few feet more  -would .show up a wide rich lead of copper  ot-e that would "make millionaires of the  stockholders, lie "proved" his jisisei'-  tions by his books, talked learnedly jibout  this and that rock indicated, expressed  an additional caudle box of ope to .Spin  Francisco, and wrote to the stockholders  for a "little inoi'O money" and, at the  same time, assured them that ji few more  shots would uncover untold wealth. Iti  tlie meantime the eight-inch pump was  kept running aud so did the owners-  money.  A practical miner would not have sunk  a foot ou the knif_-blade scam. But tho  book-Icai'ned export professed to know all  about the mysteries of the earth's bowels,  but wtis finally called from the woj'thloas  "lead" by the disgusted company after he  had sunk tens of thousands of dollars in  sinking ;i 300-foot shaft. Aud that is  not the only instance whore theory was  knocked out by hard facts. It is true  that foi*tunes_hiivo been made by investors iu mines, who never swung a pick or  trod a level, but they employed practical  men not theorists, to manage the underground part of the business.  If tho   whole  truth   were   known  it  lAVould transpire that tlie great bulk of  the mining failures is dii-ectly chargeable  to ignorance���to  the failure of theories  to   answer   expectations   raided.      Any  j theory based upon tho working of a mine  for  group of mines,  may prove baseless  'when applied  to  it different formation.  ! Mother earth  was  not  built upon  any  given plan or rule.    She is full of froukf.  Jind theories never take freaks into consideration.    The  practiciil   minor  meets  and surmounts them and goes about his  business until he finds something else unusual to tax his resoiu'ces.    The thoori.it  may build a theory from what ho saw,  jbut it dies "a boruiu" for he never fiuds a  [condition  to   fit   it.      Practical   mineiy  [know  when they meet changed conditions of the earth in shafts or  in levois,  [but  they  can't say  whether  they  will  [make or break by pursuing the change.  ?A theory is often followed to financial  ruin ; a practical  man follows only what  [is in sight.   Theory Jind practice iu mining never trot in the same class.  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Sl^agfuay, U. S., Atlit], B. C, and  Dawson City, Yu^on, District.

C,  movable cause of difference arose out of  Englantls inability to porinanontly servo  its an .accomplice in Dutch crimes against  the native rticcs. Hngli.ih officialdom at  the Capo might linvc been indifferent,  but the English mis-sion.arics wore contin-  ually bUrring up public opinion ;it"home  with their stories of Boer .atrocities.  The result was enforced government interference, the great trek, two Boer republics, and ultimately the present Avai\  Great Britain can go into this conflict  with clean hands. Tho primary causes  of difference with the Boers have been  entirely honoi.able to the British govei'n-  inent. The Dutch in South Africa luive  shown that tliey me inctipablo of appreciating tlie liberty which they owe to  British institutions, or of extending liberty to other races, either native or  English.  Here Today, Forgotten Tomorrow.  We are told th.at this ago is one of fiist  living, changes, enthusiasm one djiy and  foi'getfulue&s the next.    For an hour the  Avorld goes wild over a toy, then drops it  for something new,  or newly   painted.  Events are crowded on and oft the big  stage, to serve their turn, and the generation picks up the program for something  different.    In tho general hurry of things  there is  most  noticeable  the  quickness  with which public questions and persons  pass, are forgotten.    A few chvys ago the  world watched eagerly the movements of  Dreyfus.      Now   Dreyfus   is   forgotten.  For a time Jules Guerin barricaded in the  Paris  headquarters of the Auti-Semite  League, w.as au object of deep public interest,    lie too is forgotten.    Max Regis,  the  notorious Jew  btviter, lied from  his  liouse  in   Algiers,  where he   had  been  forced  to seek  refuge.     He,  too,  after  brief notority lias been lost sight of completely.    Dewey, the object of the extraordinary  enthusiasm  of   our neighbors,  and for a time watched by the world, 1ms  slipped out of the procession, and is forgotten.   People  have forgotten  the violent attacks on Hon. Mr. Sifton ; as completely  they ha/ve forgotten the Yukon  charges, and never a mention is made of  the gi'eat embalmed beef scandal.     Even  the  Peace Conference  was a thing of a  day, and before long the big international  yacht  race will  be over and forgotten.  In  comparison as the  interest in these  persons and events, is deep, so is the oblivion into which they go.    The world is  rushing its news, as men say it is rushing  its life.   Officers Should be Canadians.   ���  Toionto News.  Care should be taken by tho militia  department that tho contingent which is  to be sent to South Africa to represent  Canada in the imperial army should not  be officered by political favorites, devoid  of the requisite qualifications for leadei-  iship in n strenuous campaign such as  that which may be expected in the Transvaal. The experience of the United  States during the late war with Spain  should be a wsiruiug to the Canadian  authorities not to repeat the actions of  the politicians at Washington ixud send  men to Africa because. they_havo _sho\vu_  ability to do political work in au Ontario  township. No doubt tliere will bo hundreds of such men making application  for commissions and for positions as non-  com missioned officers, but the government  should j'osolntoly set their faces against  CORPORATJOFOF IHE GITY~0F NELSON  NOTICE  TO  MUNICIPAL  VOTERS.  any suggestion to put incompetent men  in important-.places. There are enough  good soldiers in Canada anxious to take  part in the impending conflict to officer  ten regiments, and if, with so much good  -material on hand, the government should  select men who are unfit, morally or physically, for the arduous duties they will  bo called upon -to-perform,- they will meet  with the condemnation of the electoi'ate  in general. The Canadian contingent  should be composed not only of the very  best men in the ranks, but every officer  should be as fine a specimen of Canadian  manhood as it is possible to select. The  appointment of colonel Otter to the com-  miind of the contingent is not only popular from one end of the country to the  other, but it is one that will reflect credit  upon those who appointed him. All that  is necessary is to put into practice the  same principle iis tluit which guided the  authorities in appointing the colonel.  Practical Patriotism.  Hamilton Ileiald.  A man who is loudly patriotic with his  mouth may be genuinely patriotic, and  he miiy not be. But there is no doubt  jibout such pi'oofs of piitriotism as the  George E. Tuckett Company supplies.  This firm proposes that any of its employes who may go Avith the Canadian  contingent to South Africa shall be paid  by the firm fifty cents a day during their  FULL LINE OF  period of service, that their positions  shall be kept open for them until they  return, and that the firm 'shall insuie  their lives for $1000 each fi-om the day  of their departure until they come back.  A Howl That Will bo a Howl.  The fii'st howl that ever came up from  the middle class was when the evolution,  bf private property concentrated into  trusts and began knocking out the small  factories and traveling men. Wait until  the development of the next two years  shall have developed the depjirtiueiit  stoi-e into great chains and flips up the  700,000 small dealers and then you -will  hear the howl that will put even tlie anarchist to shame.  :e2.^.&.&.^.C^  #**  Front Doors  Inside Doors  Screen Doors  Windows  Inside Finish  local and coast.
