London,   November    1.���The    British  war office today made public a  despatch  received fi-om general "White,  describing  the operations of Monday.    It AA'as as fol-  Ioavs:    "Ladysmith,    October    31���7.50  p.m.���I took out fi'om  Ladysmith a  brigade   of   mounted  troops,  tAvo brigade  divisions   of   the   Roytil   artillery,   the  National field battery, and two bi'igades  of infantry  to  reconnoitre  in  foi-ce tho  enemy's main position to  the  north, and  if opportunity should  offer, capture the  hill    behind    Farquhar's    farm,   AA-hich  luul,     on     the     previous     day,     beeu  held     in     strength     by    the     enemy.  In     connection     AA'ith      thi->     advance  a column consisting or the 10th Mountjiin  artillery,   four   half companies   of   the  Gloueesters,   and   six  companies  of   the  lloyal Irish   Fusileers,   the   Avhole   under  lieutenant-colonel    Carlton    and    major  Adye, deputy assistant adjutant-general,  AA'as dispatched at 11 p. m. on the 2!)lh to  mai'ch by night up the spruit and seize  Nicholson's Nek,  or  some position  near  there,   thus  turning  the  enemy's  right  Hank.    The main  advance Avas  successfully carried out, the objecbof the attack  being found evacuated, and an artillery  duel between our field batteries and  the  enemy's guns in position and the Maxims  is understood to luive caused heavy loss  to the enemy.    The i-econnoisance forced  the enemy to fully disclose his position,  and lifter a strong counter attack on our  right, which  the infantry  brigade .and  cavalry    repulsed,    the     troops     Avere  slowly    Avithdi'iiAvn    to    camp,   pickets  being left oil  obscr\'ation.    Late  in   the  engagement, the na\'al contingent, under  captain   Lamb ton    of   II.M.S.   Powerful,  came into action and silenced, Avith tlieir  extremely accurate fii'e, the enemy's guns  in position.  "The circumstJincos Avhicli attended  the movement of lieutenant-colonel Carle-  ton's column iii-e not yet fully known,  but from reports l-eceived the column  appears to have carried out the night  match unmolested, until Avithin two  miles of Nicholson's Nek. At this point,  two boulders rolled down the hill and a  few rifle, shots stampeded the infantry  ammunition mules. The stampede  spread to the battery mules, Avhich broke  lose from their leaders and got tiAvay  Avith practically the Avhole of the gun  equipment and the greater portion ofthe  * regimental small-arm ammunition.

A     careful     calculation    of    the    British    lo->ses    in    all  the  engagements  since  the outbreak of  hostilities,     excluding     the     casualties  among the non-commissioned oflicci's and  men in Monday's disaster at Ladysmith,  Avhich aie thus far unknown hero, gives a  total of 01(5, to Avliieh probably  1200 will  need  to be  added   Avhen the details re-  gju'ding  the  Ladysmith reverse aro re-  ceiA-cd.

There they remained unmolested until morning, the time, being  occupied in organizing the defence of tho  hill and constructing stone laagers aud  walls as cover fi'oin fire. At dtiA\n a  skirmishing attack ou our position avjis  commenced by the enemy, but mado no  headway until 9:30 a. m., Avhen strong  reinforcements enabled them to rush to  the attack AA'ith great energy. Their fire  became very scorching aud two companies  of the Gloueesters, in an advanced position, Avas ordered tof.il! back. Tlie enemy  pressed, to short range, the losses on our  .side becoming very numerous. At 3 p.m.  our ammunition Avas practically exhausted, tiie position aams captured and  the sui-viA'ors of the column fell into tho  enemy's hands. The enemy treated our  wounded Avith hitiuauity. General Jou-  bei't tit once dispatched a letter to me,  offering safe conduct to doctors aud  ambulances to remove the Avounded.

London, November 1.���Tt is announced  today in a special dispatch from Ladysmith that the Boers closed in on that  place on Monday night, sending shells  into the British camp. The two guns  landed from the British cruiser PoAverful  opened fire on tho Boers at daAvn on  Tuesday. The Boers brought up more  guns, but some of them Avere silenced, a  40-pound gun being knocked clean off its  platform. It is added that the Boer los.s  must be heavy. The garrison of Ladysmith is described as being in good  spirits and confident, and the troops are  said to be full of fight. Tne artillery  duel avjis still in progress Jit night.  Fought Like Soldiers.  London, November 1.���The gloom  caused by the British ditister at Ladysmith avjis in a measure relieved by to-  dsiy's story giving the account of the heroic stand made by the decimated battalions until their last cartridges Avere gone.  An Estimate of the Losses.  London, November 1.���The war office  today issued the folloAving additional list  of   58   casualties   sustained   by general;  Yule's foi'ce from the time of the battle  of Gleneoe until ,it joined the  force, of  Were the Mule Drivers Tampered With?  London, November 2.���The queen is  credited Avith expressing her sincere sympathy for general White, and the officials  aro in no Aviso inclined to judge him  harshly. So far as the public is concerned, however, while gratification is  felt at the manner in Avhich the isolated  battolions surrendei'ed, there is still severe ci iticism for general White and lieutenant-colonel Carleton for itlloAving their  columns to get out of touch, for the ab-  sence of proper scouting, and for not retiring Avhen the ammunition avjis lost. In  favor of lieutenant-colonel Carleton, the  explanation is hazarded that he believed  it AA'as imperative to the success of general White's operations that he should  hold the position at Nicholson's Nek.  The Morning Post comments seA'erely  upon the British contempt for the enemy,  as shoAvn by the belief that the larger  Boer force at Acton Homes could be'held  in check by Carlton's small column. It  points out that even if the, British there  had been supplied with ammunition, they  could only have held out a few hours  longer,   inasmuch as   they were  in the  artillery   personnel, soiled a hill on the i mf *'pomplote sense ditched and because  left     side     of    tho - road,    two    miles N��obody  apparently at   Ladysmith  had  any idea of their distress or took measures to ivscue** them. The column Avas  sacrificed because it avus sent into action  gagged and blindfolded. It had neither  scout nor patrol. Twelve hundred tnen  Avere thrown aAvay for kick of cavalry,  Avhich could not jiave been missed iu tin-  other part of the field.  The Standard comments in similar  terms upon the "fact that general White  made no effort to extricate the column  from the impossible situation into AA'hich  he luid thrust it, and draws a picture of  the men hoping for relief, Jind then  realizing AA'ith bitterness of heart that  some'oue liad blundered; that they had  been forgotten by their general and his  staff, and nothing was left but surrender  and imprisonment iit Pretoria until the  end of the Avar."  The Daily Chronicle says "it is evident  that somebody had blundered, but more  particulars ai-e required before the balme  can be apportioned."  ���The -Times-sjiys:��� "The-dangers- of  generjil White's plans tire patent, even to  civilians, but it is not impossible that the  Cjipe boys iu charge of the Mountain  battery, avIio quite recently Avere suspected of disaffection, may have been  tampered Avith by the Boers; otherwise  such a large and comprehensive stampede  is a very extraordinary occurrence for  such a slight cause. Genentl White's  moA'einents, so far as they can bo understood from present information, is open  to criticism."   WILLING TO BEAR THE BURDEN  Of the Losses at Ladysmith.  Victoria, November 1.���[Special to the  Ti'ibune].���BetAveen the acts of tlie melodrama "In Old Kentucky," at the Vie-  torifi theatre tonight, Harry Helmcken,  colonel Giegory, senator Tern pieman and  Dtive Ker appeared upon the stage as  sponsoi's for this resolution : "Resolved,  that in the opinion of this representative  audience of the citizens of the City of  Victoria, the people of Canada would  vieAV Avitli hearty and symxiathetic appreciation an offer by the Dominion of  Canada to make good to the imperial  forces the loss of men recently sustained  at Ladysmith, and pledges that the City  of Victoria will do its full share in that  behalf." This was'carried amid tremendous  cheers by an audience which crowded the  house, aud Avill be Avired to sir Wilfrid  Laurier.    . Gratified at Canada's .fro*, osal.  London, November 2.���The morning  papers comment with the greatest satisfaction upon Canada's suggestion regard-,  ing the sending of a second contingent.to  South'Africa.. ' ,  REPORTED THAT GENERAL BULLER  Is ou the Way to Ladysmith.  London, November 2.���An unconfirmed  statement is  published  that general  sir  Redvers   Buller has left CapetoAvn for  Ladvsmitii.      A  belated   dispatch  from  Ladysmith,   describing   Monday's  fight,  says:  "A couple of squadrons of hussars  had a narroAV escape from disaster early  in the day.    They found themselves suddenly confronted within easy  range  by  tin   ovei'Avhelming  foico  of Boers,  avIio  seemed to spring from the bowels of the  earth.       The     hussars      were     splendidly   disciplined   and   Avere   extracted  Avith      only       one       man      wounded.  The Delagoa Bay cable route, combined  Avith the monopolization of the available  telegraph lines  by the government and  the  state officers, is  responsible for the  fact that nothing  further   has  arrived  from South Africa.   The government has  received dispjitches rectifying the casualties list.    They Avill be published today.  But  up  to midnight nothing  had been  received concerning Monday's casualties.  The Avar office officijils are working under  gi'eat   strain.     Captain   Perriott,  staif-  cjiptaiu  to the   military  secretary,  has  just died, his   end   being   hastened  by  anxiety and overAVork.  All Were Not Lost.  London, November 2.���A special despatch from Pieternmrit-burg, Natal,  dated Tuesday morning, says: "Stragglers from the Gloucestershire regiment  are arriving Jit Ladysmith. A number of  mules Avith a portion of the mountain  battery are also coming in."  ULTIMATE   VICTORY   CERTAIN  Prominent Public Men Speak.  London, November 1.���The earl of Sel-  bourne, under-seeretary of state for the  colonies, speaking at Dumfries today  said : "It is not the fault of the states-  ���men of the Transvaal that %ve have not  become embroiled Avith some European  power. If hostilities had not como when  they did, they would have come at some  moment of national danger anddifficulty.'\  Barou Tweedmouth, former parliamentary secretary to the treasury, speaking  at Edinburg, said: /'The public mind has  not been so moved since the dreadful  events of tlie mutiny in India. We, unfortunately, are warring AA'ith a ntitiou of  the same stock and religion as ourselves.  At this crisis iill hearts go out to the  bmve Boei.s and to the small British  army in Natal, wFiich, against fearful  odds, has peiformed magnificent feats of  valor. It is not the time to call our opponents mimes or to raise cries of vengeance, but to back up her majesty's ministers, who have jin aAvful responsibility  upon their shoulders."  The earl of Cjirriugton, Liberal, speak-  ing at Buckingham, gave expression to  virtually the same convictions.  The earl of Lonsdale, honorary colonel of  the third battalion ofthe Border regiment,  at a banquet gi\reu this evening at Whitehaven, declared his confidence in general  White,~the Britisli"cbinmaiidcr-in~ Natal,  and predicting a grand review in Pretoria next March. Referring to emperor  William's celebrated telegram to president Kruger, at the time of the failure of  the Jameson raid, loi'd Lonsdale ssiid:  "If his liiajesty's despatch had been  really imdeistood it would have luid ji  totally different effect. It avjis sent Avith  a view to allaying sores. It avjis not antagonistic to Great Britain. I have  pleasure to knoAV the vIoavs of the German emperor, and they are in accordance  Avith the vieAVs of England."  Lord George Hamilton, secretary of  state for India, speaking at Ealing this  evening, said: "Our ultimate victory is  certain, and Avhen the terms Avhich Ave, as  Aictor*-. AA'ill propose to the vanquished  Jire knoAvn, foreign nations Avill see that  the main cause Avhich has forced us to  embark upon this conflict is not a desire  for pecuniary profit, or for territorial  aggrandisement, but a determination to  emancipate a vtist territory for the common^ benefit of mankind from an ignoble  and degrading tyranny."  Lord Rosebery, toasting "The Army  smd Navy " at a banquet given this evening by tne lord piovost of Edinburgh to  the officeis of the Gordon Highlanders  and the Scots Greys, referred to the reverse in Natal, saying : " It is much to be  regretted, but in a considerable ciini-  paigu Ave must look out for such incidents. It is not in the nature of Britons  to take much notice of them. We had a  good many of the same kind and liave  /���fenerally got out right in the end. But  Avhatover happens, Ave mu&t sec this  thing through, even if it should cost still  more battailous and still more millions.  Some dfiy there��� -will be an inquisition as  to the preparations made for this Avar,  but the time for that is not now. Our  duty now is to support those who have  the direction of affairs."  IMPORTED  ITALIAN   LABORERS  Arrivft.at the Payne Mine.  Sandon, November 1.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���The    strike    in. the    Slocan  country has -returned  a   crisis,   and  the  Silver-Lead    Mine   Owners'   Association  has commenced importing Italian laborers from  the Pacific Coast states.    The  first consignment arrived  today for the  Payne   mine    from    Seattle,    Washington, being  sent in under  contract by a  Seattle employment agency to the Silver-  Lead   Mine   Owners'  Association.      The  citizens of Sandon  and members of the  miners' unions of Slocan  ai'e  very indignant, and will take steps to haA'e the Alien  Labor Law enforced.    Sir Wilfrid Laurier, solicitor-general Pitzpatrick, and HeAV-  itt Bostock, M.P. for Yale-Cariboo, AA'ill be  appealed to.    The provincial government  will also be asked to co-operate in securing the enforcement of the law.    No disturbance  is  looked  for, but the  miners  muke frequent mention of the belief that  the imported.laborers are brought in for  the purpose of inciting them to  violence.  A Eumor That is Discredited.  London, November 1.���In connection  Avith the rumor of the loss of the British  troops, the mime of the Peninsular & Oriental steamer (Nubia litis beeu mentioned;  but the company has not met tiny disasters, tind they say that the Nubia sailed  from Southampton, October 21st, for the  Cape of Good Hope, via St. Vincent, Cape  Verde Islands, Avliieh place she left on  Monday. The" rumor seems to have originated in Berlin on Monday, but nothing is  knoAvn of the matter here.  FUNSTON DENIES THE CHARGES  And Brings Suit for Libel.  Kansas City, November 1.���A despatch  to the pStar from Albuquerque, NeAV Mexico, says : " General Frederick Funston,  avIio is en route home Avith the -mustered  out Twentieth Kansas regiment, has  wired his Topeka jittorneys to bring proceedings against archbishop Ireland of  St. Paul for criminal .libel, because of  statements attributed to the archbishop  in-a recent iutervieAV. General Funston  also instructed his lawyers to begin criminal and civil prosecutions against the  Monitor, a Catholic paper of San Francisco, Avhich first printed the story."  In a recent iutervieAV in Chicago, archbishop Ireland avjis quoted as sjiying that  general Funston had been charged Avitli  looting Catholic churches in the Philippines. The charges alleged to have beeu  referred to by the archbishop Avere made  by the editor of the Monitor soon after  the landing of the Kansas troops in San  Francisco. The Monitor stated, it is .said,  that general Funston had taken tAvo magnificent chalices fiom a Catholic church  in the Philippines and sent them home to  his AA'ife. Archbishop Ireland, in his Chicago iutervieAV, AA'as quoted as calling  upon general Funston to deny the truth  of the article and sue the editor of the  Monitor for libel, or the public ay ouid be  obliged, agtiinst it.s Avill, to believe him  guilty of the criminal acts of_Avhich he_  has been accused.  A Hint to the Irish.  Irish soldiers Avcaring the red coats of  tho Bloody Saxons jire offered hen ps of  good advice by gatherings of their fellow-  countrymen in Dublin and elseYY'hei'e.  The tidvice not to enlist comes too late to  be useful to Irishmen already in the service. They are treated to a variety of  helps and hints, and the Dublin patriots eloquently opine that when the  Irish regiments see the green flag of  Erin flotiting side by side Avith the  flag of the Transvaal they Avill remember  that it is their day off and cease fighting.  The final burst of eloquence adorns the  prophecy that tiie Irish soldiers in the  queen's service Avill take mighty good  care to shoot over the heads of the Boers.  Solemn but frothy patriots at Dublin ignore the primeval emotions which govern soldiers, and the IrHi regiment is  not likely to be chased across lots by the  Boers, or shoot over the head*, of men  avIio are trying to kill them just to feed  their hereditary grudge against the  Bloody Saxon.    Capture of the Hussars.  The folloAving official account of the  capture of the sqttadion of the Eighteenth Hussars by tlie Boer* is given by  captain Hardy; "After the battle at  Gleneoe three squadrons of tlie Eighteenth Hussars, Avith tt Maxim, a company  of the Dublin Fusiliers tind a detachment  of mounted infantry, colonel Mocllcr,  commander, kept under cover of a ridge  north of the camp and tit 0:30 p.m. moved  doAvn toAvards Sandspruit. On reaching  the'open, the British force Avas shelled by  the enemy but without casualties. Colonel Moeller led his men around Tallinn  hill in a southeasterly direction, acrosn  V jin to! Drift road, captured several Boers  and saw the Boer ambulances -retiring.  Then Avith squadron B  of the Hussars,  the Maxim and the mounted -infantry he  crossed the Dundee-Vryheid raihvay aiid  approached a strong force of the enemy,  Avho opened ti hot fii'e, wounding lieutenant   Lachl.ii.     Our    cavalry   retreated  across the Viintz Drift road.    The Boers  pressing, colonel  Moeller held the bridge  for some time, but the enemy enveloping  his light, he fell back across the Spi-uit.  The Maxim stuck in a a. aterhole.    Lieutenant Kap aviis Avounded, three of the  detachment   killed   and   the   horses   of  major Greville and  captain Pollock Avei-e  shot  under them.    The  force finally reformed on a bridge  to the north,  Avhich  was held for .some time.    While captain  Hardy    avus   attending    to    lieutenant  Creuin,  Avho had been AA'ounded, colonel  Moeller's foi ce retired  into a defile, apparently  intending  to return   to camp  around  Impati mountain.     But  it Avas  not seen afterwai-ds.  ASSIZE  00URT_CIVIL  DOCKET  Cases Heard and Unheard.  The hearing of the case of Kerr vs. the  OddfelloAvs' Building & Investment Com-  ptiny Avas completed yesterday before  Mr. justice Martin. The case has now  simmered doAvn as to Avhat amount the  OAvners of the OddfelloAvs' block shall pay  to contractor Kerr as an extra through  being obliged to complete the building in  the Avinter, instead of during the fall, as  Avas contemplated Avhen the contract Avas  let. The evidence of Charles Hillyer wtis  taken upon this point to the effect that,  Avith the materials on the ground, the  contractor should be entitled to an advance of 10 per cent upon the contract  price for the uncompleted portion of the  Avoi'k.    Judgment Avas reserved.  The case of John McDonald vs the  Canadian Piicific Exploration Company  Avill be taken up today. This is au action  under the Employers' Liability Act, in  Avhich the plaintiff sues for $3000 for the  loss of a foot, AA'hich Avas injured in the  defendant's mine, the Porto Rico. The  accident in question happened on the  28th of January. The plaintiff claims  that Avhile engaged in clearing out a  ventilating shaft, under the direction of  the foreman of the mine, a quantity of  rock fell on his left foot, crushing it in  such a manner us necessitated amputation. t Macdonald & Johuson appear for  the plaintiff and A. F. MacNeill, Rossland, for the defendant company.  The case of Vans tone vs. BuckAvorth,  an action for damages for the nondelivery of stock in the Tamarac Mining  Company, has been adjourned to the next  sitting of the supreme court. The adjournment Avas one of the terms upon  Avliieh the plaintiff avjis permitted to  amend his pleadings. Mr. justice Martin  yesterday alloAved the defendant costs of  the adjournment in any event. S. S.  Taylor, Q. C, appeared for the plaintiff,  and R, M. Macdonald and J. F. Burne for  the defendant.  Gave the Officers Little Trouble,  Alan Forester, provincial constable tit  Robson, left this morning on the steamer  A.1 bertti-for the internntionfil "boundary,"  having in charge Milton O'Howell, who is  Avanted in Fergus county, Montana, in  answer to a charge of murder. Since his  arreat at Quesnelle Forks, O'Howell has  given the officers very little trouble. He  has preferred to reserve Jill his means foi-  his trial rather than Avaste them in the  useless struggle against extradition. At  the boundary he aviII be turned over to  the United States authorities.  TWO RIVER STEAMERS WRECKED  On the Yukon.  Victoria, November 1.���NeAvs aa-jis received by the steamer Dunn be, which ar-  rived this afternoon from Skagway, of  the Avrecking of the Yukon i-i vei' steamers, which AA'ere risked by being run too  late in the season, by the sudden clogging of the river. The Nora, of tho B���  L k N. Co., had her hull cut by ice Avhile  ciossing lake Marsh, and began to fill.  .She a\'jis beached and held there in tlie  ice. The passengers luid to sled out their  outfits over the ice, Avhich a Aveek ago  formed about four feet thick in a single  night, through a sudden fall iu temperature. The .steamer Stratton is reported  to have foundered near Seiwyn. She had  her hull cut in endeavoring to force her  Avay through the ice, and after wind's  sank. The passengers Avere all saved.  The mails and .some freight Avore lost.  .She Avas afterwards forced under the ice.  A Second Army Corps May be Called Out.  London, November 1.���It aviis rvported  at Aldershot today that another complete army division, will forthwith be  formed for service in'South Africa, The  division consists, of 10,000 men "and 54  guns*. This i.s possibly ti preliminary,  step toAvards the calling out of a seeoisd  ai'my corps.  ARE VIEWING THE ROUTE OF THE  Projected Railway to Balfour.  The report that the Canadian Pacific  intends to commence work at once upon  the   extension   from  Nelson to Balfour"  received .sonie corroboration yesterday in  the announcement that H. W. McLeod,  engineer-in-charge of the construction of  the Ci-oav's Nest Pass branch "from Cranbrook to Kimberley, aud J. O'Brien, sup^  erintendent upon the same'work, attu'ted  over the line of the proposed  work  yesterday.      They   started   from   a   point  opposite Balfour, and are AA'Oj-king doAvn  towards this city.    It is  said  that  their  object is to have at hand full information  as to the Avork when superintendent Mar-  pole and chief-engineer Cambie arrive in  Nelson from the Coast next week.    The  construction of this road upon the lines  suggested, that is  by  local  contractors,  avIio shall purchase all of their supplies in  this city, Avill be of more benefit to Nelson than avjis the construction of either  the   CroAv's   Nest Pass  or  Columbia  &  Western railways. It will have the effect  of spreading the advantages of construction over tne entire community, instead  of permitting them to be SYvallowed by  a feAv alien contractors.  Later.���The presence in the city of  five Avell-knoAvn Canadian Pacific engineers may be taken as an earnest of  the company's intention to commence  work upon the Balfour extension within  a short time. R. P. Doucet aud A. E.  Doucet, who had charge of the company's  construction in the Lardo, J. II. Mticleod,  and J. B. O'Brien, Avho have charge of  the construction of the branch from  Ci-anbrook to Kimberley, are registered at  the Phair, and Arthur II. Boulton, avIio  was also employed on the Lardo work, is  registered at the Hume.  One Hundred Thousand Under Arms.

SjoattU3, November 1.��� The treiisuve  ship Roanoak Avhich reported today, six-,  teen days fiom St. Michaels and cloven  days from Cape Nome, brings the first  story of the death of several of the New  Yoi'k members of the Alaska Prospecting  Company. The dead are Mr. and Mrs.  l_mil Kuliner, Oscar Becker, and a man  unknown,    Becker's   body   Avas  wnshud  on the beach     at���St.��� Michaels -  island, and later on the overturned  steamer and a scoav loaded with machinery aviis found, Avhich represented the  assets of the company. There .are two  surviA'oi's, John Baker and Theodore Dio-  drick. The ucavs ay'iis brought to St.  Michaels by natives, avIio claim to htive  seen the steamer overturned during a  severe Aviiidstoiiu ivhich prevailed about  September 1.1th. The government launch  Noidic.i aa-jis detailed to go to tho  scene of the accident. She returned  two days later Avith the scow and Oscar  Hecker's- body. Owing to a high surf the  crew of the Noitlica could not make an  examination of the o\'crturued .steamer,  Avhich, no doubt, contained the bodies of  Jlr. and JIr.i. Ktihner and tho unknown  man. The party was made up in Ncav  Voi k city in the spring of 189S.  The Deal Ratified.  The detil bet\Areen the  city  and F. C.  limes for the purcha.se of the several  pieces of land in the bed of CottoiiYA-ood  cieek, Avhich is required by the city for  Avater storage purposes, avjis ratified yesterday, and the papeis have been for-  Avui'ded to VatieoiiA-er for signature by  Mr. 1 nnos. By the terms of the deal the  city pajs $1200 and receives in return a  title to a portion of lots C and D. in  ���ill about three acre*.. The city likeYY-jso  secures a i ight-of-AA'iiy through the re-'  mnindcr of tiie limes property for the  pipe line from Cottomvood creek. City  engineer McCulloch has estimated that  by securing the land conveyed to the  city by the agreement, the city can raise  tho level of the electric light dam six  feet Avithout backing the water upon  priviite property. This storage capacity,  he estimates, will enable the city to run  its electric light plant to its capacity  during tho lowest stage of water for  eleven hours, by storing tho day IIoyv of  1 the creek* THE  TRIBUNE:  NELSON,-B.

A country Avhere the laborer is a  citizen, Avith a voice in the  management  of its  alfairs, is  generally a  prosperous  one, as   compared    Avith    the   country  Avhere    labor   is   performed    by     men  directly   controlled    by    padrones   and  tyees.    Canada has been fortunate in not  attempting to bring in any large number  of non-English  speaking people, and the  result is that she has had but feAv hibor  troubles.     Were her toAvns   and cities  centres of any large numbers of non-  English speaking people, this  would' not  -be the.ctise.j   Such, people  are unable to  understand our laws, and once they have  ..grievances they cannot be restrained by-  appeals to reason ;' they invariably  take  the law in their oavji hands, Avitha result  that is too'often'little less than civil war.'  Editor,.Carley of the Economist, who  lias, as yet, been unable to take sides in  the fight that'is going on in the Slocan  betAveen the mine managers and the mine  workers, Avill iioav have an opportunity to  make a declaration that will be something more than the sound of tinkling  cymbals. His Conservative friends, the  "miue managers, have imported Italians  from Seattle to work in the Slocan mines.  As this will tend to hurt the prospects of  the .Conservative party iu the coming  election, he should muster up sufficient  courage to denounce the men Avho are  attempting to put the Grand Old Conservative Party iu a hole.  The mayor of Spokane is made of good  stuff. The city council passed a resolution ordering the slot machines to go, and  afterwards A\reakened. The mayor stood  pat, and all the slot machines in Spokane  that are played for money must be taken  out. The merchandise machines are  equally as great frauds on the public  as the money machines, but tliere is not  the same incentive to gamble for merchandise as for money.  Missionary' Tolmie's efforts appear to  have a measure of .success. ....-He has, it is  said, --prevailed on a number of Italian  laborers to renounce the pick and shovel  of the railroad camps in the bad state of  Washington to accept the hammer and  drill of the niines in the silvery Slocan.  Missionaries are usually proud of their  Avork.    Is Tolmie of his?  Is Spokane to give Nelson a lesson in  morality ? The robbing nickle-in-the-slot  machines are to be fired out of Spokane  by Spokane's Presbyterian mayor. What  is the Presbyterian mayor of Nelson  going to do Avith the half hundred robbing machines in Nelson ?  The employment of Italians and Chinese in the mines of Kootenay and Yale  means the depopulation of Nelson, Kaslo,  Sandon, NeAV Denver, Silverton, Slocan  City, Ymir, Trail, Rossland, Grand Forks,  Phounix, aud Greemvood.  Hoav many manufacturing establishments and wholesale houses could be induced to locate iu Nelson, AA'ere it to become knoAvn that the mines of Kootenay  and Yale Avere to be worked by Italians  and Chinese? ���  Weke the mines "of Kootenay and-Yale  Avorked by -Italians and Chinese,' hoAV*  many banks would be doing business; in  the toAvns that now -promise to become'  centers of population and Avealth ?  How much real estate avouIc! change  hands in any toAvn in Kootenay and Yale,  were the metalliferous mines in these two  districts" Avorked by Italians and Chinese?  Hoav many brick* buildings will be  erected in Nelson next year, if the  niines of Kootenay and Yale are filled  Avith Italians and Chinese?  w  m^mmmmmmmm  mi  ^^s$:��: _? ^*^^s��:!S>.��:1  m  WOOL GOODS  Now on D'splay  #  xtii  iti)  The Following Goods Have Just Arrived  B  B  B  Hosiery  itis Heavy Cashmere Hose in  # Women's o and Children's,  xfij direct importations and  W special value.  iti)  iti)  Infants  Wool Bootees, Gaiters,  Hoods, Mitts, Coats, Jackets, Coats and Wraps.

A repetition of tho Viau-Parslow murder case is looked for in tho case of  Thomas Moouey, the Lake Benuport  farmer who was fwund dead with his  head split in tlie woods near liis own  home on Saturday. Tlie victim's wife  mid a neighbor have been arrested and  held by the coroner. Before- the coroner  yestei'dsiy the wife admitted having  eoiiie to Quebec to consult a lawyer  about obtaining a divorce, .because her  husband was away four years.  The question of abolishing the nickel-  in-the-slot machines in Spokane has  resulted in the stirring up of eonsiderab-Ie  commotion, and the mayor aiid certain  members of the council are temporarily  at outs. The trouble has all come up  over the different interpretation put  upon the wording of the resolution passed  by the council some time ago to the effect  that the machines must go.    In the reso-  THE BANK OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlin,, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yin\on, District.  lution no distinction was made as to the  different kinds of machines and' the  mayor interpreted it to mean, as it read,  that it included machines of all kinds,  merchandise as well as money.  It is stated on good .authority that it is  the intention of the authorities that the  transport Sardinian, with the Cauadian  contingent for Soutli Africa, Avill cross  the Atlantic and proceed via the Siiez  canal to its destination. This step is  taken in view of the fact that the Aveather  around the "Cape of Good Hope is very  stormy, especially duaing next month,  and it is thought to save time by taking  the route through the Suez.  While'*-the'Samoan' negotiations continue, it can be said tluit they are in  such a condition that there is small possibility of reaching an agreement iu the  near future. The United States has informed the British foreign office that it  heartily endorses the proposal for the  government of Samoa by.one poAver. But,  so far, no phin has been set AA'hich Jip-  pears to be satisfactoi'y to the United  States. - - -   '-.-'-   Canada May. Have a Challenger.  A number of comparatively. Avealthy  ���men of Montreal ���--are about to put up  ���money enough to start the building of a  'yacht that is to challenge for the America's cup next yejir. The scheme is that  the amouuts first subscribed will be merely to begin the yacht," and that it be paid  for by popular .subscription. As the  Royal -Nova Scotia Yacht Club has "for  its annual regatta ail "ocean-water cotirse  ou the sea" it is supposed that tlie challenge Avill be issued through the club, as  it is, perhaps, the only one in Canada  Avhich fulfils the necessary conditions of  the hist deed of gift. The scheme of  building on popular subscription ji yacht  to race for the America's cup has been  tried in Canada before, Avhen the  Countess of Dufferin tind the Atlanta  Ave re built at Coburg. and were defeated.  The plan did not Avork well, as there avjis  a, lack of money just wlieii .it avjis most  wanted, and the success of the present  scheme  is" Arery doubtful.    Tliere is   no  A~SNAP IN  MINING SHARES  yacht designer in Canada that could hope  to compete Avith Herreshnff, and the challenging yacht would probably be designed  and have its frames molded in England,  these being put together afterward when  the yacht-would be built in Canada.  Rubber Forests of Bolivia;  The rubber forests of Bolivia aro practically unlimited and are a source of  Avealth much-more easily reached and developed than the mines. There is no  gambling or risk in a rubber'quinta, provided the OAvner can obtjiin labor and can  send his product to market. The demand is unlimited and increasing every  year, and the government of Bolivia or of  Peru will sell unlimited ai-eas of natural  forests of rubber trees at a nominal price  to any one avIio Avill develop them. The  trees groAV on the eastern slope of the  Andes aud in the Avarmer vjilleys, and  the forests can be reached on mulebaek  from La Paz, from the steamboat stations  on Lake Titicaca, and also fI'om the railway that runs from Puno to the north  of Peru.  The first step in starting-.a1-rubber-  plantation is to clear aAvay the underbrush and cut out the dead trees, which  is a task of great labor and difficulty, because the vegetation is dense and represents the growth of ages ; but-when it is  once done the property has increased in  value a hundred fold, and the rest of the  job is easy. ��� Thereafter all that is necessary to do is to keep the ground clear, see  that the trees have plenty of light and  air, are free from parasites and are allowed to enjoy the'food Avhich nature has  stored in * the, soil. Formerly, Avith that  improvidence which seems so natural to  mankind, the rubber trees Avere cut down  in* order to get the sap, but uoAvadays  they are cultivated like an orchard, and  FULL LINE OF  science litis deiuoustr.afed that good care  will be repaid a thousand fold.  The process of nuiking rubber is inucli  like that Of making maple sugar. The  trees are tapped Avhen the sap begins to  run, and the milk, as they call it, is boiled  in a big kettle until it is reduced to its  propor consistency. In some parts of  Brazil the natives find a vine whose juice  AA'ill cause the milk of the rubber tree to  coagulate Avithout the use of heat, but  the common process is to "boil it down"  with all its impurities and iiIIoav the  manufacturer to refine it.  Cost of Living Advancing in Sweden.  It used to be the general opinion that  one.could live cheaply in Sweden, but the  tjibles are rapidly turning. Every article  of general consumption has -.advanced  perceptibly in the last year, aud the people are complaining on all sides. An  apartment of seven or eight rooms in  Stockholm, Avithout electiic light, bjith-  rooms or steam heat, costs $500 per annum. Half that .amount AA'as formerly a  fair price. Let the flat be new -and haA'e  a bath, central, heating and other conveniences, and $750 would have to be paid.  When Ave come to the servant question  we find almost as great a dearth of them  as in America. Four dollars a month, was  formerly, good pjiy for a general-'house-'  'worker, while now they command $5-and  $6 a month. Since 1884 butter has never  been so high. First-class butter is quoted at 35 cents a pound. Meat and fish  have gained 25 per cent. Oysters area  delicacy. Vegetables ju-e almost impossible to obtain. Beer, the Avorkingman's  beverage, is up to American- prices���and  no "free lunch."  w  iti;  iti  im  mm  &&&.  .p5^.��_.  m^m&m&mm  iti)  Appreciation  To dispose of an entire car of high-class iron and  brass beds in a western mining town in less than two  months is certainly a record to be proud of, and one  seldom equalled in the large eastern cities. Yet so  great has been the demand for these goods, we have  found it necessary to wire for another car, which will  reach Nelson this week. We would ask the citizens  of Nelson to continue in showing their appreciation of  our efforts to give them the opportunity of enjoying  the luxurious furnishings of an eastern home in the  midst of the Rockies.  m  B  B  B  B  B  B  B  B  B  P* Iremont Hotel  Noonday-Cupley Mines,  [NON-PERSONA L LIABILITY]  HEAD OFFICE, SILVERTON, B.

The work done upon the property consists of a main tunnel, which  has been run In on the vein for 225  feetj and the vein where cross-cut  shows an average width of from 8 to 10  feet. The vein matter is made up of  about 20 inches of clean ore, the remainder being composed chiefly of  concentrating ore which samples 60  ounces silver. From the main tunnel  level there has been shipped 520 tons  of clean ore, which netted the company,  after deducting freight and treatment  charges, over $1000 to the car of from  18 to 20 tons. From the main tunnel  an upraise has been driven for 100 feet  and a slope 75 feet long opened up,  About 150 feet below the main tunnel  a cross-cut is being run, This tunnel  is now in 125 feet and it is estimated  that the lead exposed in the main tunnel will be reached in another 30 feet,  A force of 18 men is at present employed upon the property, all but three  of whom are employed on development.

M"   *V    mCUUMil.lt  THE LOCAL NEWS OF THE TOWN  Nelson Likely to be the Head(iuarters.  From private communications received in this city, it is evident that the  militia department intends to make Nelson the headquarters for the several  companies of the Rocky Mountain  Rangers. The officers of the local company have taken steps to form a second  company, and should the required consent be seciired from Ottawa, the enrollment of the men should be proceeded  with. It is said that the choice of Nelson as tlie headquarters of the battalion  is largely due to the favorable j'epoit  upon the loetil company by drill-instructor Carroll.  Harry Wright, who is clerk in the gold  commissioner's ollice, has been appointed  mining recorder at Nelson, vice D. A.  MeBeath, resigned. The appointment  wtis made by the minister of mines, on  the request of Mr. Wright.  John A. Tui'nei', government agent, expects to leave for a trip to the old countiy on or tibout the 15th instant, provided Mrs. Turner's health will permit.  W. J. Goepel, auditor of jirovincial offices,  will tict as government agent while Mr.  Turner is away.  The ladies' aid of the Presbyterian  church are preparing to make ti grand  display of needlewoi'k, suitable for  Christmas presents. The dtite of the  commencement of tho sale has not been  definitely fixed, but it will be some time  in bhe fore part of December.  The regular monthly meeting of the  ladies' hospital aid will be held in St.  Paul's Presbyterian church - on Monday  afternoon at 3 o'clock.  The Hall Mines, Limited, have purchased from P. C. limes a right-of-way  from Palls street to the company's property on smelter hill. The right-of-way  is 125 feet wide and is equtil to six ordinary town lots. The consideration was  ,$1200.  Two carloads of fire brick arrived over  the Canadijm Pacific yestei'day, consigned  to the Nelson Coke ��fc Gas Company. The  brick will be used in the construction of  the company's plant.  MeBeath & Peters, who have the contract for laying the water main from  Cottonwood creek, expect to have the  work completed inside of two weeks.  There remains about half a mile of pipe  to be laid.  John Toomley, a miner formerly employed at the Athabasca mine, was  picked up at* the comer of Baker and  Staiiley streets last night and sent to the  .BUSINESS   MENTION.  general   hospital.      He   was   in   broken  health and Avithout a cent.  The Parsous Produce Company yesterday received four carloads of eggs over  the Crow's Nest road. Two cars will be  shipped out to Boundary points, one car  to Rossland, and the remaining car will  be used to meet the local demands of tho  trade.  J. W. Beugough of Toronto, Canada's  greatest cartoonist, is registered at the  Queen's.    He is accompanied by his wife.  Jacob Dover is back from a business  trip through the Boundary countiy.
