 A   REGONNAISANCE  IN   FORGE  Fails to Draw the Boers.  London, October 29.���General Redvers  Buller may bo expected at the Cape today.   This.will be a very fast  voyage,  the   mail  steamers  usually  arriving  jit  Capetown on Wednesday of every week  at the earliest, but in response  to  a  re-'  quest of the  war office  that sir Donald  Currie should secure the'maximum speed,  the   steamer   on   which   general- Buller  sailed   was   provided   with   nine   extra  stokers.     As  reinforcements  will ai'i'ive  each  day   at  Capetown  general   Buller  ought to be in a  position   very soon  to  send troops to the relief of Mafeking and  Kimberley    without    depreciating    the  .sti'eiigth of the 'great army corps whieli  will march through Cape Colony and tho  Orange Free State to Pretoria. Although  these   ainionncenients  are  not  officially  made as to  the  destination  and  movement of the.army corps, the troops will  be conveyed by rail to De Aar Junction  at least.    If stations further  north are  by that time inaccessible, and will thence  proceed noith ward by forced marches .to  Bloemfouteinunci the Tisinsvaal.    Military  men  regard   the   hostile   attitude  of the Fi'ee State as a blessing in disguise,  owing to the"'advantages of the country  and diffiulty of defending it against an  officer of Bailer's capacity and strength  of forces.    The Fi'ee State is not tin ideal  base for a satisfactory invasion  of  the  Ti'ansvaal, but it will sei've military re-  quiremeuts much better  than northern  Natal.-   ' '������ ���   *  Meanwhile. genei-al White and Cecil  Rhodes are facing the music. The latest  Hows at liidiiight, was that general Joubert, with the full strength of the Boer  forces in Natal, avjis within ji few miles of  general White's position at Ladysmith'.  A British recoiiuaisauce iu foi-ce came in  contact Avith the enemy, bub failed to  draw them for a -'strong position close to  Ladysmith, but it seems highly probable;  that a gresib bsitble may be pending. The  destruction of the bridge over Sunday  "river,'it Avas estimated, would be certain  to prevent the Boers bringing big guns to  bear sit Ladysmith.. The Boers probably  have twice the strength of the British  field force in Natal, and possibly the proportion is three to one.  From Dundee ugly rumors sire current  that tho Boers havo been shooting inhabitants found with arms on them, but  offering no resistance. Fortunately these  stories have not been confirmed by good  authority.  -   Emperor William's Approachiag Visit.   .  Ni_w Yoiuc, October SO.-^ Regarding the  approaching visit to England of-emperor  William, the .London. correspondent of  the Tribune says-. "The German .emperor,  hits again become'a picturesque .figure on  the European'stage.   French Chauvinism  * forgives him for having" intervened"at  the close'of the Dreyfus trial to deprive  the verdict of the judges of all moral  force, and is now?coaxing him to stay  away, from England. Bismarck's Ger-'  man partisans are also warning him  that it is more r important for him  to remain on, close terms  with the  Czar-  1 than to win popuhirity in England.  There is also the old time ^feeling, of  jealousy, especially among - the com-  mei'cial classes of Germany, which is not  easily, erased witli the new  trend of the  - emperor's policy of friendship for England. His projected' visit to England has  become a- matter of high diplomatic importance, and will be preceded-Avith a  meeting of the C/.ar, AA'hich will nob lessen the signifiesince of the event.  Natually, he is investing these incidents  with an atmosphere,of mystery. smd the  prominence attached to his movements  imparts lustre to liis prestige and personal influence* iii European affairs.  ���- -    - -  -  MONDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 30, 1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $6 A YEAR; WEEKLY, $2.  St. John's Ambulance Society, as auxiliary to the regular  military corps.   The  latter is  well  equipped, but is perhaps  numerically too weak.    It was mobilized  before the burghei'S were called to arms.  When tlie war commenced  several  rsiil-  road trains were made ready, fitted with  swing beds and till modern  conveniences  for alleviating suffering.   A field hospital  was  attached  to  every commando, and  bhe  hospital  headquarters  fixed at Pre-  toi-ia,  to  which  place all  the burghers  within reach of the railroad are sent with  the least possible  delay.    The Avomen of  Pretoria   and   Johannesburg   responded  nobly to bhe invitation  to  do  volunteer  duty  in  nursing, "for  the.sake of their  Lord and their country," as. the pathetic,,  appeal -read.-   II. Blakeslee,  chief  repre-  sentath'e  in  the Transvaal  for tho St.  John's Ambulance Society, Avith doctors  Croghan, Lilloop and Mangold, organized  classes,'and lessons in nursing  and first-  aid to the wounded sind other useful instructions were given.     Several hundred  Avomen regularly attended, and  most of  them are doubtless now at'.AvOrk. in Pie-  torisi and iu the field.  RUMOR'S OF INTERVENTION ARE  MAFEKINO WILL NOT SURRENDER  Bombarded for Three Hours.  Capetown,.October 29.���The following  dispatch, dated October 23rd, has been  received from Mafeking: The enemy began a ''bombardment of Mafeking at 7:40  a. m. today, fit a range of tAvo miles and  a hillf, their battery of three Krupp guns  throwing seven pound, nine pound,, and  twelve ..pound explosive shells. At the  outset the firing AA'as erratic, but ultimately the Boers got the range and sent  a number of shells into the town. Comparatively little damage aviis done, a eon-  A'ent Avhich had been converted into a  hospital, being the chief sufferer. This  building Avas struck three times.  Apparently the Boer ammunition avjis  inferior. No casualties Avere sustained  by the British, and only one shot Avas returned. This, however, aa'jis so Avell  directed jis to disable one of the enemy's  guns. After three hours the Boei's .sent  an envoy to ask the town to preparo for  surrender. Colonel Baden-PoAvell, the  British. commander, replied in the  negative.    The shelling was nob resumed.  A. later despatch from Mafeking says  the Boers are in-possession of the Avater  Avorks and htive cut off the supply. This  occasions no anxiety because an ample  supply is available in tanks aud wells."  During a sorties-tills OA-ening the British  encountered the enemy three,miles off to  the north*. The Boers had apparently  been warned and returned the British fire  iu an earnest Avay^Avith. a Avell managed  machine gun. . Our men had po intention  of pressing au attack, they retired ini-  medkttely." The conduct of our "men Avas  splendid. The loss of the enemy, could  not be ascertained.  Ladysmith Not Yet Attacked.  Ladysmith, October 29.���At 5:25 p.m.  everything here remains quiet, and the  water supply is being renewed. A number of resident civilians have been ordered to Icjive the town under pcmilty of  arrest. Lieutenant Miklejohn, of the  Gordon 1 Lighlanders, avIio avjis Avounded  at Elandslaagte in the arm, is improving  after amputation of the member.  Oaphtow.v, October 29.���A dispatch  from Ladysjiij,fch dated October 2<ith ssiys:  "Several sorties liave been made but the  last rceonnoitoring party failed to discover tho enemy. A dispatch to tho  South African News, from Pretoria, ssiys  the Boer loss at Elandslaugte aviis thirty-  six killed and sixty-four wounded.  Do Not Favor Arbitration.  Antwerp, October 29.���There is ji decided reaction of feeling in regard to intervention- by the powers betAveen Great  Britain and the South African republics.  The Dutch politicians iioav declare - that  arbitration Avould certainly be too faA>-or-  able to England. The shipping trade is  greatly alarmed. The Jinnonncement  by Lloyds that ten guineas Avar risk is  paid betAveen England and Russian ports  created a panic on the exchange. The  anti-British tone of the Belgian press is  moderating, OAving to several official  Avai-nings about the necessity of maintaining cordial relations Avith England.  The Sick and Wounded Well Cared Por.  London, October 29.���Today's mail  brought an interesting dispatch from  Pretoria respecting the Boer arrangements for dealing Avith the sick and  Avounded. The Ti'ansvaal has the orthodox Red Cross Society and  an  efficient  Boer Contingent Secretly Raised in Holland.  Neav Your, October 29.���The London  correspondent of the Sun says the British  government luis reeeiA-ed positive information that tv contingent numbering  .about 1000 lias been secretly raised in  Holland to help tho Boers. Wealthy  Amsterdam merchants found the money  for the equipment.--Over -tAvo -hundred  men ai-e already enroute, and the re-  raainder Avill folIoAV in small detachments  as they can obtain transportation. The  rendezvous being Koomatiport, on tho  Portuguese frontier, Avhere the commandant has been instructed Avhat to do  Avith them. The men tt-iwel as returning  Ti'ansA-tial citizens, and it is not believed  that the Portuguese government can prevent them from proceeding over tho railway to the frontier. Probably the Bi'itish government has already made some  sort of representations to the Dutch government, but the first confirmatory neAvs  Avill likely come from Lorenzo Marquez",  Avhich is the chief town on Delagoa bay,  in an announcement thatthe Dutch have  been prcA-ented from landing. The goA'-  ei'iior at Lorenzo Marques** is as zealous  as though a salaried Biitish agent, and it  is presumed that he acts on instructions  from Lisbon.   France .Will Not Interfere. ���  Paris, October 29.���Although there.is  much hostility to Great Britain shown in  the French press, moderate papers - like  the Figaro, the Temps and the Debats,  "which reflect the A'iews held sit the Qiuii  d'orsay, recognize the sheer folly of  French interference ��� Avith Great Britain  in the Transvaal and give promise to the  exemplary neutral attitude observed by  president MeKinley Avhen the petition for  mediation avjis presented to him at  Washington. The decision of bhe cabinet  is stilted here to haA'e been a communication to the continental powers, informing  them that the United States will not  participate in any interference in the  South African conflict, nor take a cour.se  hostile to the interests or Avishes of Great  Britain. It is stiid on high authority here  to represent exactly the course adopted  by the French government.  Pronounced Idle Fiction.  London, October 29.���All rumors that  the European  poAvers  Avill intervene in  the  Transvaal  are  idle fiction.    France  and Russia may luive some ulterior purposes' if convenient opportunity arises for  carrying them  out,  but thei'e Avould be  no attempt  to ' secure a  coalition of the  poAvers in favor of peace or enforcement  of the principles  of the  congress at The  Hague.    France may ultimately purchase  Cueta and  the  Canaries from  Spain, or  take possession  of Morocco, and Russia  may',\ swoop ���   down   upon    Herat    and  strengthen her  hold  upon either Persia  or China,  but tliese  siggressive policies  AA'ill be deferred  until  England is deeply  involved in South African affairs, if any  attempts be made  to take advantage of  the war.    The arbitration arrangements  adopted at the  peace congress cannot be  applied  to  the  Transvaal  war Avithout  the consent of England, and no European  power,is prepared to affront the British  government by suggesting that the names  ofthe Orange Free State and the South  African Republic  Avere   in  the  original  list of the poAvers which the Dutch government submitted to.jbhe approval of count  Muraviff before: invitations to the  peace  conference'were sent orit..   This list avjis  revised.at'St. Petersburg, and  Avhen  the  Dutch ministers tried, the  names of the  tAvo Dutch republics in Soutli Africa had  been  dropped.     Russia  Avas responsible  for the exclusion of these  two coiiiinon-  Avealths'.from  the congress.    They were  shut out because it was suspected  at St.  Petersburg that England would not allow  themto be classed Avith sovereign states.  Russia excluded them from participation  iu  the  proceedings  at The  Hague,  but  president Kruger by his ultimatum took  the most effective measures for interrupting the natural course of mediation  and  arbitration.     He suddenly' brought the  negotiations to an end and rendered Avar  unavoidable, and in this Avay allowed  no  time for the  application of these pacific  forces  Avhich   the  congress  had recommended  for a general  adoption.    When  Avar; had once begun it was ' too late for  either   the   Boei-s   or .any   sympathetic  nation to  suggest arbitration or mediation;  - - - *  Arbitration Avould have  been  equally-  futile after the battles  of, Manila and'  Ssmtia'go,'in the. Spanish-American AA'ar.  The suggestion that the American  government shall intervene intho interest of-  peace is  regarded in, diplomatic cii-cles  here as & vagary "as  flimsy as  Ophelia's  dreams..   The British government Avent  out of its  Avay before and during tho  Spanish-American Avar to prevent European intervention in the Cuban question.  It is .con tended by public men here that  it  Avould be a,J shabby   return -for this  favor, if the American government Avere  now"to thrust  its good  offices unasked  upon Great Britain, and  suggest either  arbitration or mediation tis ii meiins of  restoring peace.    No serious attention is  paid to rumors that such action is in contemplation in America.  It is repeatedly asserted that the Transvaal is prepared to issne lettei-s of marque,  their accredited envoy, Dr. Leyds, being  fully empowered in that regard, and that  arrangements are being made Jit Amster-  dam to fit out a SAvift steamer. Tt is believed, hoAvever, that" "this projecTThiis"  been abandoned OAving to the vigilance  of British ships of Avar in the English  channel, which Would make it hopeless  for any privateer to get clear JiAvsiy into  the opeii sea unobserved. Except sis to  Holland, there appeal's to be no popular  sympathy Avith the Boers sufficiently  strong to induce the sympathizers to run  risks.  In Normandy it is understood that ti  number of officers on the retired list have  gone to the Ti'ansvaal, and others are  preparing to go, all carrying commissions  iu tho Boer Jinny, given through Dr.  Leyds*. The arrangement in each case is  for each officer to pay his oavu transport  tation as-far as Koomentfar, but are to  receive pay on taking duty. These men  are actuated purely by professional in-*  terest, and doubtless would jis readily  liave accepted commissions in the British  army, if they could have been obtained.  It is Ayorbhy of note that the Italian  govei'iniient has not issued si declaration  of neutrality, smd the purchase of mules'  by British agents continues unchecked,  on the ground that they are not contraband. In the Vatican no attempt has  been made - to hide the sympathy for  England. It is understood, moreoA*er,  that the Catholic prelates of .South  Africa haA'e been instructed to give no  moral support to the Transvaal or Orange  Free State, because in both these countries the fsiithful have always been under  the bann, Avhile in England and the  colonies there is no cause for complaint.  THREE WAYS, EITHER OF WHICH  Would be Satisfactory to Canada.  Nkw' Y��bk. October   29.���Sir   Louis  Davies, Canadian minister of marine and  'fisheries, arrived here  yesterday-on  the  Cunaid    line   .steamer   Campania.      HW  Avent to-England three weeks ago  to lay  before tho imperial government Canada's  views on the Alaskan boundary question.  With  him  Avent the under secretary of  state, Joseph Pope, and  the chief astronomer,  W. F. King,  avIio  surveyed  tho  line for Canada.    When seen on the pier  yesterday   sir   Louis  said:     "I   cannot  speak  at" length-about the Avork accomplished in England, as it is  confidential.  As; has been published, a  temporary tir-  rangement has been agreed  upon,, and in  so far as it .will-'prevent local -friction- it  is satisfactory.   The modus vivendi does  not, hoAveyer, foreshadoAV Avhat the  permanent solution  of the dispute Avill be.  It is absolutely necessary for us to coihe  tofsome understanding,-for., we have large  interests there, and the situation Avas becoming intolerable.    The joint high commission  AA'ill  ai*riiiige  the conditions on  Avhich the question can be settled.    Canada AA'ants  only Avhat   arbitration Avill  give.us.    We are not grasping or seeking  concessions.       What   Ave   want   is   out-  rights.". ���-.-.  .Sir Louis added'that both lord Salisbury and -Mr. Chamberlain had.told him  they Avere determined to have' the question settled amicably, and he said they  scouted tlie idea of any other means being  used but die most friendly ones. "I may  "say," added sir Louis, "that the Canadian  government entertains similar- feelings.  We haye three propositions to make,  Avliieh are: Unconditional arbitration of  ;the Avhole dispute; arbitration ou similar  terms to the Venezulan arbitration; or  arbibration on the basis that if the United  Stabes shall keep Dyea and Skaguay, it  Avill concede Pyramid harbor and adjacent territory to Canada, thus giving  us a harbor on the Lynn canal. Lord  Salisbury is ready to adopt either of these  propositions. I cannot say how soon the  matter Avill be settled, but I hsive no  .doubt that the time is not f;ir distant."  ceived a chorus of praise, came about in  the'following Avay:   Tho director general  of the army medical department, having  in view the   probability of tliere beimr  sevei-al lines  of  communication, thought  it Avould be  desirable to haA'e consulting  .surgeons of  large  experience Avith each  force.    These surgeons  Avould  be especially useful in cases Avhere the question of  major operations might arise, and Avould  relieve  the   already  busy ordinary surgeons of great anxiety and lesponsibility.  The marquis of Lansdowne, the secretary  of state for Avar,  agreed  that the emergency-aviis one  of  Avhich  the leading civilian  surgeons might   be   notified.    He  therefore asked  the  advice  of professor  ���McCorniick,  avIio  immediately proffeied  his "ownservices,  Avhich are  of the most  valuable   nature.    His   experience   Avith  surgery in the  field  is unrivalled in this  country, and specially equipped surgeons  Avill accompany him.  During the Franco-  Prussian Avar many leading German civilian surgeons  gswe  tlieir services to the  army in a consulting capacity.    The same  was true of the Russian surgeons dining  the Russo-Turkish Avar.  SARDINIAN SAILS AT NOON TODAY  With the Canadian Contingent.  Private advices received iu Nelson yesterday Avere to the effect that the Ctma-  dism contingent AA'ere to sail on the  Sardinian from Quebec City ab noon today, instead of at noon on Tuesday.  Every man of the thousand avjis in good  condition and good spirits. Captain  Hodgins of Nelson Avas piesented Avith a  SAvdrd Avhile en route through Montreal,  the gift of his felloAV-townsmen.

Victoria, October 28.���-There is genuine I'egi'et in musical cii-cles iu this city  over the news of the death in California  of  William  Greig, the  founder of Vic-  The Great Northern's Big Tunnel.  Si'Okanb, October 29.���But about ."3000  feet of rock uoav separates the tunnels of  the Great Northern in running through  the Cascade mountains from the east and  Avest sides. Satuiday night, ono Aveek  sigo, 8004 feet of the tunnel liad been  completed and at that time 5249 feet remained to be done. This has been reduced  nearly 200 feet iu the AA'eek. Tt is estimated that the en tiie tunnel will be completed within a year as Avithin the last  tAvelve months 5117 feet has been bored.  ,H. W. EdAvards of Spokane, assistant  engineer "of the Great Northern, is in  charge of the tunnel construction.

The paper,  Avhich has been "nominally a republican  organ, was popularly supposed bo be in a  position to clunigo in caso senator Turner  again sought election to the United Status  senate, hence the efforts of senator Hanna  and associates to buy it and make it an  administration organ pure and simple.  NO TIME ISTOBELOST IN MAKING  The City a Proposition.  President Shaughnessy of the Cariadiaii  Pacific Railway Company proposes to  give the people of Nelson an early ou-  portunity of saying Avhether or not they  are desirous tluit Nelson shall be made a  divisional point on the Canadian Pacific  company's railway system. The raihvay  company is prepared to get to Avork at  once, and superintendent Marpole Avill  return to Nelson sometime during next  Aveek and submit the raihvay company's  proposition to the city council.  Although  no details   have   yet been  published, it is stated that the company  proposes  to  make  very  heavy expenditures in Nelson.    The present yard  is to  be remodelled, and  the  frame  buildings  which     do     duty     at      present     are  to be replaced by substantial structures.  As the company will  endeavor  to  havo  all   the   new  buildings  aboi-e ordinary  high Avater it will be necessary  to  move  the depot and freight shed  in  closer to  the high gtound on Vernon street, beloAv  Raihvay sti-eet, and  iu  order  to  get a  little more room, one part of the railway  company's request a\ ill be that the people  of Nelson psiss a byltiw condemning the  blind  ends of Vernon,  Baker,  Victoria  and Slocan streets and turning the same  over to the company.    The  second  part  of the company's request A.ill'be that the  company's   divisional   facilities,    depot,  etc., shall be  exempted  from  municipal  tsixation for a  gh'en  number of years.  The company is pi-epared  to commence  AA'ork  upon the buildings as soon as the  bylaAV is passed.  The matter of the recreation grounds  will be adjusted sit the same time upon  the basis arranged in the first instance  between the city, the provincial government, and the railway company, by Avhich  the raihA'ay company conveys the present  recreation grounds to the city and le-  ceives from the government the unsold  lots in the railway fiat.  Nothing has been announced yet Avith  respect to the building of the branch  from Nelson to Balfour, further thsm tliat  the Avork Avill be in hand in January next.  There is the possibility, however, thsit  Avork   may be commenced   next month.  Kootenay Men in Phoenix.

Unless Great Britain i.s a party to such ji  demand,' Russia's action will undoubtedly  stir up a hornet's nest, compared Avith  Avhich the Transvaal is insignificant.  Antipathy Increases  Day by Day.  Pa His, Octobci' 29.���The Avar in .South  Africa continues to rh'etthc attention of  the public and dominates the political  situation.

Loi-d Rosebory's .reapyej-u'iince in the  world of politics, by his speech at Bath  ou Wednesday, caused a renewal of  speculation as to the future ofthe Liberal  leadership.* It* is asserted on the best  authority that- sir Henry Campbell-  Bannerman, speaking at a private dinner  to Rosebery, at the Reform Club, l'ccontly,  emphatically insisted on the inevilable-  ness of lord Rosebeiy's resumption of  the lejidership.

He aims at securing the independence of tho Transvaal aud the  Orange Free State, but -judging from the  queen's speech, it is doubtful ,if ucgotia:  lions on these lines will be considered.  Tho military authorities have decided  that American press correspondents at  the front in South Africa will have the  same privileges as their English colleagues.

No Unemployed Workers.  In New Zeahvnd each township has its  .own clerk, each borough and' city ward  tho same. Each of these officials keeps ;v  set of employment books.

District.  one needing  help can  apply here, look  over the books jind got  acquainted with  eiich other.    All this without cost to any  one.    But this is not all.     After a mime  has been on the books two weeks  as one  deserving work the clerk's attention can  be drawn to the fact when  he will give  an order to the proper officer, Jind the ap-  plicant will be sot to work for the public,  building roads, bridges, cleaning streets,  and working  on  public  buildings,  at a  lower wage, however, than  private parties ai*e paying.    Thus if  a  day laborer  gets $1.25 a day, the public employment  bureau will give say 90  cents.    Now, no  one will work  for  the  town  at 90 cents  if he can get employment from others at  $1.25.    If ji  man  is  hard up and out of  work, he works for the public at 90 cents  and supports  himself.    The  question of  the unemployed  has  been settled satisfactorily to everyone.    If a vag should,  emigrate from America to New Zealand  and commence begging, he would be immediately turned over to the employment  bureau and  set  to work���made to work  if necessary���and then paid for his Labor.  'The vag,  you  see,  has  changed to a laborer who. need  never  be  out of work  moie than two weeks at a time.  for the plotters.

' Under the.above headline the Standard  and Diggers' News, published Jit Johannesburg, Transvaal, says, that while the  August output of gold for that month, in  the Transvaal, reached', the total value of  over $8,000,000, and that in no-part of  the globe are mining operations carried  on under more favoi'able conditions than  in that little republic, the serpent in the  Garden of Eden has taken'a political  form and the people have eaten of the  tree of knowledge that tells of their  nakedness iu regard to biu-ghersliip  privileges, and the outcasts���self expelled  ���number thousands upon thousands, and  adds : " Strange to say, while gaunt  misery stalks abroad marking the trading community , for its prey, the  record of mining" results daily, and  profits to shareholders' increase in  propoi'tiou to the gold won. Stinnge  .anomaly       indeed-��� on the       one  handp ruin "and misery, on * the other,  bounding prospei'ity and increasing vjil-  ues."' Tliis the paper calls golden misery.  It attributes the cause of this rather  novel condition of things in South Africa  to the efforts of tho millionaires to  frighten away the miners, close down the  mines, depreciate their value,- and then  purchase tliem ,jit one-third, or less, of  their valiie.  In. this country, in the west, we would  call ic "freezing out the little fish that  the big ones could swallow the pot." This  may bo the way ,South Africa millionaires  manage such mutters, but it is rather an  expensive, not to say brutal, way of freezing out stockholders. Such things are  done differently iu the "wild and woolly  west," aud the same end is accomplished  without the shedding of blood. A prospect is developed until its i'eal ohar-  acter as a mining proposition is ascertained. The conscienceless operator  or operators then begin the fi-ee/.eout  givme7~The"propei'ty failsto pay,- stockholders are called upon to put up, the  money is sank in the pockets of the  'manipulators of the game, stockholders  become discouraged or their money gives  out,-they sell out for a song, ixiul those in  the deal gobble up the whole works. The  pi'ogrumme is varied to harmonize with  the conditions, but in the end the property passes into, the hands-of the grafters, instances are known where the  "biters were bitten," but as a general  thing the smooth workoi'S.get away with  tlie pot.

Losses Heavier Than at Alma.  London, October 29.���Tlie large number of Bi'itish ..officers killed in the battles  which have already taken  place in Natjil  luis brought out strenuous protests from  many quarters  against the  ancieut cusr  torn of Bi'itish officers in refusing"'to-take,  cover when under fire.    From -figures at  Gleneoe it is  apparent that one out of  every four killed was an officer, whereas  the organization exists upon the principle  that to every 25 men there Is one officer.  It is evident  tluit is the .same ratio of  morality is  kept  up  the  British forces  will    become   seriously   under-officered.  Among enlisted men at Gleneoe the proportion of killed to  wounded  was  30 to  156, while ten ������ officers- were killed to 22  officers-wounded.    The difference  in the  percentage    leads    to    tlie   conclusion  that     many     of     the     officers     were  hit    more    than     once    and    kept   on  leading their men after the first wound.  The  proportion of the casualties,  as  a  whole, has caused-a thrill of  horror  and  sympathy throughout Great  Britain, for  the people  now begin  to reali/.e what a  fight with a civilized enemy means.    Old  soldiers point out that at the Alma, one  of the bloodiest battles in Gi'eat Britain's  annals, the casualties totaled only 6 per  cent, whereas, in. the Boer  engagements,  they   have   considerably  exceeded  that  figure.  ^-__^_M-n_B*--a_�� p__.��^_a_^-M_-^_-_--B-__  The Tremont Hotel  N|AL0flE _ TRECILLUS  PROPRIETORS  ag<  .C=>.C=>.l.
