 BOERS HAVE  GAINED  GROUND  In Campaigning; in Natal.  London, October 26.���The tidings that  general Yule Avas marching toward sir  George Stewai-t White's field forces, and  that tliere had been another successful  action with the Orange Free State  troops, brought smiles to English faces  yesterday. There liad been deep anxiety  since the war office was suspected of  holding back bad news, Avhereas it was  either indiscreet to announce prematurely the measures for the concentration of the two forces, or else communication had been temporjirily bi'okon off.  The junction of the two forces will enable them to take up ji strong defensivo  position at Ladysmith.  It would have been good strategy if  tho British field force in Natal had been  stronger by 1000 men, but, with the su-  perior strength of the Boers, continued  occupation of Gleneoe was a source of  weakness, and its abandonment was dictated by prudence.  General "White's .bird victory, when  its full effect is, known, will sti'engthen  the beneficial effect produced-by the previous bjittles upon the Dutch in Cape  Colony, and .that is one of the ..(strongest  jDoints in tlie game. The whole conduct  of the field forces thus far reflects credit  upon the Indian generals. Whyte, Symons and Yule and colonel 'Hamilton ai-e  all officers of purely Indian training,  pupils of lord Roberts, and exponents of  his school of warfare.  Militaiy- experts here unite in praising  general Joubert's plan of operations aud  in admitting that it Avas more brilliant  and practical'than the scheme of defense  of the Bi'itish side, by Avhich a force inferior in strength aviis divided between  two exposed posts aud cut off from supporting each othei". If general Joubert's  three columns had been in closer touch  Avith each other and had been brought iu  rapid oi'der, the garrison at Gleneoe might  have been overwhelmed in spite of its superior artillery fire and the gjillantry of  its troops.  Ingogo Heights, Avhich, according to  the reports, haAre been occupied by the  advancing Boors, aro tniversed by the  railwjiy from Natal to the Ti-ausvaal.  Beyond Ingogo station, Avhich is 2S-J  miles from Durban, and at au eleA'atioti  of 4000 feet, the train crosses the Ingogo  river, and ascends the heights by zigzag,  passing the Ingogo battlefield, famous in  the last Transvaal war. Hereabouts-all  is historic ground. The line skirts the  base of the most renowned of the heights  ���Majuba Hill���almost crossing the foot-,  path' from Neill's liouse, a.hence ,the  British troops" started for "the top, and  whore*the .preliminary treaty of peace  A\**as afterwards signed.' Rounding Majuba Kill is the grave of general Colley,  the luckless- commander avIio met .Avitli  - the succession of disasters. '--'-. *  It Avas about Ingogo Heights that tlie  most humiliating British,defeats were  , experienced. General sir George Colley,  the governor of Natarand,comniander-in  chief of the -forties, marched to relieve  towns that Avere beleagured in theTrans-  '- vaal, then a British 'dependency, with a,  small army of 1000 men. His .progress  avjis* arrested by ji Boer command  under-geuei-al .Xoubert, juid it- avjis.Avhile  attempting to force tlie passage of Laing's  Nek on the 28th of January, 1881, that  Colley Aviis driven back ou Mount Prospect Avith heavy loss. Then ten days  afterwards came tho crushing reverse on  the Ingogo Heights. Tliere Avas it fortnight's delay, during which rotnCorce-  nients arrived, and Colley, Avith 600 meji,  executed that amazing night ascent of  Majuba Hill. His position was attacked  at daAvn by a small party of Boers, aud  nearly half tlie British force, wliich ran  short  of    ammunition,   Ayas killed or.  Avonndetir  '�����*". ^JfiSfe-.

LIST OF CIVIL GASES HEARD AND  A MINING MAN TIRED OF LIFE  An Unprecedented Output Predicted.  Cleveland, Ohio, October 26.���LjJ-ke  vessels capable of moviug 1,7(56,000 gross  tons of iron ore iu 1900 are iilrciidy iu the  hands of ore companies. Tliese figures  are amazing, audit may bo that no such  amount of ore can be,produced from the  Lake Superior region. "But it is a fact,  nevertheless, that ore companies lnwe  this carrying capacity Avithin their control, either through charter or ownership  of tlie vessels. John D. Rockefeller's representatives have 6*30,000 tons of it.  Whether all of this capacity will be used  iu tho ore trade or not is a question that  cannot be settled at this eai'ly date, but  the situation is certainly one'tliat should  cause considerable anxiety junong shippers of grain and other commodities, coal  included, as the ore companies haA'e it  within their power to cause the gieat  bulk of this tonnage to go up the lakes  light, if it is possible to mine and move  on the railroads t;he unprecedented record  in OJ'e output that is looked for next year.  General Joubert Receiving* Reinforcements.'  London, October 2(5.���The Daily Mail  publishes the following dispatch from  Pietermaritaburg, dated October 21 th:  Tho residents of Dundee had a weary  tramp of _0 miles to the nearest town  Avhere they arrived in a pitiable plight,  having lost everything. The refugees  included Harry Escombe, fornier premier  of Natal. Oue of the Dundee men says  that all day Saturday trains were arriving  at eonnnaudaiit general Joubert's hetid-  quarleis ;it Dauuhauser from the  Transvaal border bringing Boers, and  that there must have been 10,000 in the  hills around Dundee. , The natives report  that tho Boers took sixteen wagons loaded  Disposed Of.  The jury in the case of Kerr vs. P.  Burns & Co. brought in a verdict for the  defendant yesterday after having been  out for seA'enteen hours. The jurors had  three questions to decide. The first Avas  Avhether the plaintiff Kerr had secured a  contract for the building of the basement  of tlie Burns block. ' The second was  Avhether such conti'Jict having been  secured wtis broken by the defendants,  and if so,the amount* of damages AA'hich  the plaintiff was entitled to. The third  question Avas whether architect Hodgins  had authority to let a contract for the  work. It was the hist question Avhich  caused the greatest difficulty.' For the  fii'st feAv hours, it is sjtid, the jurors AA'ere  divided about five to three in the plaintiff's faA'or, but as it required six to  render a verdict they could not accomplish anything. Yesterday morning a  compromise was readied which satisfied the  jurors, but did not help Kerr. It Avas  that a verdict should be found for the  defendants, Avith a rider that the court  should settle the question of costs.  A settlement avjis reached in the case  of Church vs. Stevenson. This Avas an  action uuder the Employer's Liability  Act, in Avhich Arlington Church of Ainswortli sued Maxwell Stevenson, as OAvner  of the Black Diamond mine, for $.3000  damages for injuries sustained through  falling doAvn a shaft. By the terms of  the settlement the defendant pays Church  $250. Macdonald & Johnson' acted for.  the plaintiff aud BoAA'es & Wragge for  the defendant.    .  The argument in the case of Traves vs.  the City of Nelson avAs still peuding Avhen  tlie court rose last evening. It is likely  that the case will be finished this mdrn--  i��g- -   ' " s    -     '  RAILWAY   NOTES.   ' .

'  No details have yet beeu given to tlie  public as to Avhat the immediate intentions of the Canadian Pacific Railway  Company are Avith respect to tlie building of divisional facilities at Nelson. It is  known that the company intends to re-  aiTange tlie yard aud place Jill buildings  above high-Avatei* mark. To secure this  the company will probably ask for the  closing of the blind ends ��� of Vernon,  Baker, Victoria aud SIocjiu streets.  Will Do tlie Work by Day's Labor.  The Nelson Coke & Gas Company decided yesterday to build the company's  Avorks by day's laboi-, instead of letting  the Avork by contract.

Houghton, a .miner, hailing from  Fort Steele, committed suicide at the  Royal hotel some time Wednesday night  or Thursday morning. Houghton registered at the hotel on Sunday last aud  Avas drinking more or less after his arri-  val. Not making his appearance yesterday morning, one of the employees of the  hotel entered his room and found that he  had shot himself through the temple.  Houghton had been dead several hours  Avheii his body a.as found.  It appeared to be a clear case of a determined suicide. From the disposition  of the body it avjis evident that Houghton had covered his head Avith the blankets and fired the shot under them. As  the revolver with AA'hich he took his life  Avas firmly clutched in his hand when  the body AA'as found it is evident that  death avjis instantaneous.  Houghton was formerly employed as  superintendent of the Sullivan mine near  Kimberley, in. East Kootenay, AA'hich is  being operated by a Spokane company.  Some six weeks tigo Houghton wtis relieved, from his position on account, it is'  said, of his intemperance. The only  papers on the body Avas a Bank of Montreal deposit book, wliich shoAved ii credit  bahince of close upon $900.  The door of the room in Avhich the  shooting occurred was not locked. During the forenoon one of the chambermaids  looked into the room and thought that  Houghton AA'as sleeping. -About 11:30  o'clock the bartender Avent into the room  to jiAVJiken him and discoA'ered the suicide.  It is not known yet Avhether an inquest  AA'ill be held.  Chief of police Jarvis received a telegram last evening from Frank P. Hogan,  president of the Sullivan Mining Company, stating that Houghton had Keen  employed at the Sullivan mine until six  Aveeks ago. The deceased leaves a widoAv  and child. They are iu delicate health,  and six months ago they were sent to  England by Houghton.  .,    -Are Met5*by Cheering Crowds.

Sir Henry Irving, Avith Elleu Terry, arrived in New York yesterday from London on the steamer Marquette. He -will  begin his American tour at the Knickerbocker on Monday night.  Tho Deutsche Colonial Zeitung of Berlin publishes an ju'ticlc strongly deprecating any - suggesting .Unit Germany  should renounce her claims in the Samoan  islands, and declaring a hope that where-,  ever the German flag flouts it shall float  forever, ,  Information has reached London that  the Bi'itish steamer Zurich, Avhicli ssiiled  from Kovda October 12th for London,  foundered during a bui'ricane on-October  21st at the Vigten islands, off the Avest  coast of Norway.

Edmonson has scored one point at last in  his fight against the gamblers. An alternative writ of mandamus Avas issued  by judge Prather this afternoon, directing justice of the peace George 11. Leonard  to issue a warrant for the arrest of  Charles White, one of the proprietors of  the Owl, or appear iu court Monday,  October 30th, and show cause Avhy such  Avari'ant should not be issued.

THE COUNCIL WANTS TO BORROW  To Meet Its Deficit.  A short session ofthe council AA'as held  yesterday afternoon for the purpose of  amending the bylaw, Avhich imposes a  tax of $200 upon iill fii'e insurance companies doing business in the city. At  Monday evening's session of tho council  it AA'as unanimously agreed that the city  should collect some tax from the insurance companies, but the opinion was general that the tax of $200 per annum, as  set out in the bylaAV, avjis excessive.  The amending  bylaw  aa'jis introduced  by alderman  Hillyer.    It provided  for  the  reduction  of the  tax from $200 to  $100 per annum,  aud  received  its  first,  second and third readings.     The  mover  then-gave notice for the reconsideration  and final'adoption of the  bylaw at  the  next, regular   meeting   of   the   council.  "Vvjhen the bylaAA' becomes law it  is  tlie  intention of tlie council'to proceed .'forth-'  Avith in the collection of the tax.  . FolloAving   this   the   members of the  council   present���mayor   Neelands,   and  lilclermen Hillyer, Fletcher and Kirkpat-  ridk���discussed   in   a   general-Avay."the  finances of the city, aud the best Avay of  ���-providing for  the   estimated deficit  of  $18,000.   The general idea prevailing was  ' that there Avould be some difficulty experienced if the deficit was carried into  the next fiscal year as an  overdraft", and  it Avas .suggested that steps be  taken to  prepare tAvo bylivws aud submit  them to  the ratepayers.   It  Avas  suggested, that  as  the  deficits  were largely caused by  ov,er-expenditures upon Avaterworks  and  electric* light    accounts,    that   bylaws  authorizing  the issue of additional debentures upon tliese accounts  should be  submitted to the ratepayers'for approval.  As a result of the disciission, city clerk  Strachan   was  instructed  to  prepare  a  statement of the finances to the end of  October, aud upon the showing made  in  this statement Avill depend the amount of  the  debentures  AA'hich  the  council Avill  ask the ratepayers assent  to  issue.    As  an excuse for the issue of the ^debentures,'  it AA'ill be.stated that new^ii^ljdi^gs^re,,;  required for.the electri|gh||lIt^^i^H^jS^  the expenditure is deeiclJiiJr|i^^^ieln|^^  issue of debentures iipoii?riii��'':.^  and electric light *  $20,000.' .The .statem  for "the. council at its next 'regU'iaKyiii  ing ou Monday Aveek.

Saturday  passed in the same anxious manner in  momentary expectation of an attack. Tho  British finally eA-acuated, taking all that  they could but leaving plenty behind for  the Boei-s to loot.  The appointments of the Boer hospital  at Dundee are described as very inade-.  quate and primitive. The Boers themselves, in -the absence of a nursing staff,  got only scant attention. It is reported  sir William Penn Symons died on Wednesday and a\'(is-buried at Dundee yesterday, o  General Yules' column had a  A'ery exhausting mai-ch, chiefly, it is believed, by*'  night.    The reason for a night  march is  -not given, but it was probably a fear of"-;  Boer surprises.    Very heavy rains and ay  mist hampered the march, but Avere perhaps  the  means  of saA'ing general.Yule,  from  molestation.     It took  the column:  twenty-four; hours to cover the last six-  teenmiles.    The only neAvs this morning  consists of more detailed accounts of the  battle already reported. :.  ,���.'. A .correspondent, Avho..visited the  hospital at   Ladysmith,   Avlicrc   the   Boers  wounded at Blandslaagt ''are.'; being  at  teuded'.'to, reports that geueral Jan Kock,  avIio A\'as badly Avouiided in the thigh and  shoulder,  said  that  tlie ad\*;aiice of they y  patriots  under Pinar, Avas  simply with  ;;  the object of of cutting the railway,"aiidJ  that this body Avas  subsequently reinforced Avithout general Jqubei't's  orders.  ;  General Viijoeu accompanied them."   The  latter: wjis killed eai-ly in the fight.- y y��� yy - :  During the battle  general;;Kock  read y  his Bible and  prayed  for victoi-y;    His"  brother, tAvo sons and a nephew were ally .^  Avounded and taken prisoners.

General Jan Kock Will Recover.  London, October 20.���The Daily Mail  has the folloAving from Pietermarit/.burg,  Natal, dated October 23: The proclamation of mai'tial law throughout Natal has  given great satisfaction. Among the  Boer prisoners at Ladysmith are DeAvitt  Ilainer, member of the raad for Barber-  ton, and Di\ Van Legget, public prosecutor at Heidelburg. Among the killed  Avas De Jong, secretary of the Transvaal  educational department. It is uoav expected that general Jan Kock, the Boer  commander, will recover. General White  gave him tlie option of being taken to  Pretoria or remaining at Ladysmith, and  he chose the Jabter. The heavy losses of  the King's Hi lies, at Dundee seem to htive  been due to bhick belts Avorn over their  uniforms, which, afforded excellent  targets. .<*������'  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.

The bonded indebtedness of the city is already $175,000,  ou .Avhich there is an jinnual. charge of  $15,112 for interest and- sinking fund.

Getting Embarrassing.  The prosperity boom has developed one  condition in Chicago which is extraordi-  ai-y and almost serious. Several of tho  great railroads terminating in that city  are practically blockaded with business;  - they-ean't-get either-ears euough-or-men-  enough to handle the traffic: the tracks  of one company are crowded with loaded  freight trains for a distance of twelve  miles, aud tho striking feature of the situation is that these conditions sire daily  becoming more aggravated. These are  what might be called the vicissitudes of  prosperity. The boom is becoming positively embarassing. YeD somehow the  country will manage to stand it. It is  certainly making a cheerful effort to do so.  England's Debt to America.  William Archer write, as follows:  Passing iioav from questions of pronunciation 'and grammar to questions of vo-,  cabulary I can only express my sense of  tiie deep indebtedness of the Knglish language, both literary and colloquial, to  America, for the old woi-ds she has kept-  alive and the new words and phrases she  has invented. It is a sheer pedantry���  nay, a misconception of the laws wliich  govern language as a living organism���  to despise pithy and apt colloquialisms^  and even slang. In order to remain  healthy and vigorous, a litei'ary language  must be rooted in the soil of copious  vernaculai*, from which it can extract  and assimilate, by a chemistry peculiar to  itself, Avhatever nourishment it requires.  It must keep in touch with life in the  broadest acceptation of the word; and  life at certain levels, obeying a psychological laAV which must simply bo accepted as one of the conditions of the  problem, will always express itself in dialect, provincialism, slang. Ameiica  doubles and trebles the number of points  at which the English language comes in  touch with nature and -life, and is, therefore, a great source of strength and vitality. Tlie literary language, to be sure,  rejects a great deal more than it absorbs;  Is f|��w prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlin., B. C, and  Dawson City, Yu^on, District.  and even in the vernacular words and expressions aro iilways dying out and being  replaced by others wliich are somehoAV  better adapted to tlie changing conditions. But though an expression has not,  in the long run, proved itself fitted to  sui'vive, it does not folloAV that it has not  done good service in its time. Certain it  is that the common speech of the Anglo-  Saxon race throughout tho world is exceedingly supple, Avell nourished and rich  in forcible and graphic idioms; and a  great part of this wealth it owes to  America. Let the purists avIio sneer at  "Americanisms" think for one moment  how'much poorer the English language  Avould be today if North Ameiica had become a French or Spanish instead of an  English continent.   THE   BOERS'   CLAIM.  Tho claim of the Boers upon the sympathy of the Avorld has always been sjidly  weakened by their treatment of the  blacks. They -were the hardest taskmasters iu Cape' Colony before the great  trek, and were seriously involved with  the government on that account.  ��� When Livingstone, the explorer, penetrated the interior followiug the emigration by five or six years, he found  that the Bechuanaus held the Boers'--in  greater dread than they did their natural  foes among the native tribes. The 'Kaffir  had been cruel to tlieir enemies and kind  to the conquered. The Boers killed their  enemies and enslaved their friends.  Shivery was in fact their expedient for  securing labor. The blacks Avere forced  to Avork gratuitously on the fields of the  oppressors, and then to support themselves as best they could. "I have myself seen Boei'S come to a village," says  Livingstone, "and according to their custom demand tAveuty or thirty women to  Aveed their gardens. Those poor creatures accordingly proceeded to the scene  of unrequited toil, carrying- their own  food on their heads, tlieir children on tlieir  backs Jind their instruments of labor on  their shoulders. ' Wc make -the people  work foi' us,' said the Boei'S, 'in consideration of allowing them to live in our  country.' *'  Greed of slaves and gfeed of cattle  Avere both impelling motives for plundering forays upon the negroes. "It was  long," declares the explorer, "before I  could give credit to the tales of bloodshed  told by native Avitnesses, but when I  heard the Boers bewailing or boasting of  the bloody scenes in which they themselves had beeu actors, I -was compelled  to admit the validity of the testimony."  Livingstone speaks of nine expeditions  which were undertaken during his residence in the interior for the purpose of  adding to the Boer stock, brute and human. The methods of the Boer raiders  are thus described : " One or tAvo friendly  tribes are forced to accompany a party of  mounted Boers, and are arranged in  front to form ' a shield ' The Boers then  coolly fire over their heads till the devoted people fiee and leave ctittle, Avives  and children to the captors." Children  taken in this manner Avere brought up in  slavery.  No such system avjis possible under  English law, and AA'ith the spread of Eug-  "lislrinflueiice"the "Boers "then]selves_iiave  become sensible to its effect upon their  imputation throughout the civilized  world. But they are still severe iu their  conduct toward the blacks, and have  only yielded to external pressure.  Setback for the Boers.  Toronto Telcgivun.  Faith in their oavu unerring marksmanship and in the inefficiency of the  British forces is the star which has  guided the Boer republics into a policy of  defiance and Avar. Majuba Hill has been  regarded in tlie Transvaal not as an accidental success, but as an illustration of  tiie pei'maiient Avcakness of the British  empire and tlie abiding strength of the  Boers. Success in the preliminary movements of tlie Avar Avould have enormously strengthened tlie respect of the  Boors for their oavu powers and the con-  LODGE   MEETINGS.

So far, the preliminary movements of the Boers have not  been abundantly successful, and *a great  deal is gained for Britain when the  Dutch of the Transvaal aud the'Orange  Free State realize that the British soldiers of today are not afraid of their  sharpshooters,.and that they can concede  to the Boers an .advantage in numbers  and still block their path to victory.  A Model South African City.  No more striking instance could  Avell be imagined of tho development that goes on under British rule in  South Africa than is afforded by the city  of Capetown. The streets are nearly as  Avell paved as tho.se of Paris, the sanitation compares favorably Avith that of  Berlin, and there are all the conveniences  of modern metropolitan life, together  Hvith many to Avhich older municipalities  are entitled, but AA'hich they lack. The  city recently built a reservoir, costing ��147,000, and capable of holding  22,500,000 gallons, but the waterworks owned by the city have found  the supply inadequate, and another is  about to be constructed. There is also a  supply of sea .-water, which is used for  washing the. streets and in case of fire.  The city lias built 'markets. AA'hich are as  fine as any- in the Avorld.

Two  years ago   the city put in  an electric  light  plant at  a cost of $500,000, and  it   has   been   so   well managed  that it  is ojvlready   paying   a   profit   of   3   per  cent.    The di-ainago  and   sewerage   are  admirable,  and  the  streets  ai'e  always  clean.    In all the  world no more glaring  contrast to this model South Africjm city  caji be found than Johannesburg, which  the Transvaal government has shamefully  neglected, the gutters at the sides of the  streets in the lower  portion of the town  doing duty as sewers.    The heavy taxes  wrung from  the  Outlanders have  been  spent on fortifications  and munitions of  war.    In  police protection,  street lighting, sanitation,  and  sill other municipal  services Johannesburg is the vei'y antipodes of Cape  Town.    These things, however, will be better managed in the future  under British direction.  m  w  '���(=?.
