 THE CANADIAN CONTINGENT HAS  Sailed for South Africa.  Quebec, Oetober 30.���The church  parade of the  Canadian  contingent  yesterday was one of the imposing scenes  in  the histoi-y of the Ancient Capital. While  tlie rain prevented the bands accompanying the troops, the enthusiasm was   none  the less marked, however, on tlie part  of  the citizens of Quebec and many visitors.  An eloquent and impressive sermon avjis  delivered by Rev. Mr. Scott, rector of St.  Matthew's church.    At  the  close of the  service communion was given  to about  800, among whom were tlie governor-general and many leading military  men, all  mingling with the privates.    Tlie Bi'itish  Columbia   contingent   reached   here   on  Sunday, and weie accorded a warm welcome.  At one o'clock this .afternoon the contingent was given the most cheerful and  enthusiastic send-off imaginable.  Crowds  of citizens, reinforced   by  thousands, of  visitors, lined the streets on the. route of  piii-ade,   smd    vigorously    cheered    the  troops as they passed along  escorted  by  all local regiments.    The contingent paraded in  Avar service attire on   the  Esplanade at 12:80 p.m.    At 11:30 it was inspected by major-general Hutton, and Jit  noon sharp it was  passed  in  review by  the     governor-general.       Sir     Wilfrid  Laurier -was   on   the. parade   grounds.  After    inspection    by     his'   excellency,  a     civic y ,   address       was      presented  bythe  mayor,  who  was surrounded by  all the oflicials  of the  city hall in tlieir  uniforms.     The. contingent   was  highly  congratulated on its splendid martial as-  spect and competency by general Hutton  and  the  goveriior-generjil.    Lieutenant-  colonel Otter, in the  name of the contingent, replied  to  the  civic  address  in a  cheerful   speech,   thanking   tlie   Quebec  citizens for their expressions of-sympathy  and coi-dial encouragement.    The streets  on   the  route   of   the  parjide  had been  splendidly decorated'With  Hags and inscriptions-, especially opposite the Esplanade.   All the school children had received  ji special holiday 'for''the occasion.    The  students of the Seminary of Quebec also  received a holiday.''  British flags floated  over Laval  University.

Bufkalo, October 30.���The seriousness  of the rivalry promised the Erie canal by  the St. Lawrence route, and the danger  of the divergence of the grain forwarding  trade from this city to Port Colborne  and Montreal, is being realized in Buffalo,  and several papers are publishing the  fullest possible details on the subject,  and demanding immediate action for  ���averting,  if possible, the destruction  of  Favors the Boers.  Victoria, October 30.���[Special to The  Tribune].���William Marchant, appraiser,  of customs here, Avhose besetting sin is  haranguing in the press and on the platform on other people'-, business, has uoav  achieved unpleasant notoriety by ji scries  of letters chamijioning the Boers and culminating with a criticism of the citizens  aa'Iio took part in the demonstration incident to the departme of the volim-  teeis.

London, October 20.���General  White's  dispatch, Avhich avjis dated at Ladysmith  at (5:30 p. in. today, reads : " I  employed  all the troops here, except the obligatory  garrison,   before   the   Avorks.     I  sent a  mountain   battery,  the  Irish Fusileers,  and the Gloueesters to take up a position  on the hills to clear my left  flank.    The  force moved at 11 o'clock last  night, and  during   ihe  .night,    firing   the   battery  stampeded  the mules  with some of the  guns, Avhich, hoAvever, I hope to  recover.  The two battalions have not yet  returned, but are expected this eveniug.    I detailed tavo brigade divisions  of artillery  and five battalions of infantry, aided  by  cavalry, under" general French, to  attack  Tinta  Ingoni,   a   hill   upon   which'   the  enemy   yesterday   mounted   guns.    We  found this position  evacuated,  but  oiir.  force   aviis   attacked   Avith   considerable  vigor by  what I  believe  were  general  Joubert's     troops.     They    had    many  guns   and   showed   in   great    numbers,  ,Our troops Avere all  in  action, and A-ve  pushed  the  enemy  back  several   miles,  but   did   not   succeed   in "reaching   his  laager.   Our losses are estimated at betAveen  80   and   100,  but   those   of   the  enemy must have been much greater, the  fire of our guns appearing very effective.  After being in action  several hours, I  Avithdrew the troops, and  they returned  unmolested   to   their cantonment.    The  enemy are  in   great numbers, and tlieir  guns range  further  than our field guns.  I  uoav  have   several   guns   temporarily  silenced,   jind    hope   Avill   permanently  dominate the enemy's best guns, Avith  Avhicli he has been bombarding the toAvn  at a range of 0000 yards."  the enormous business done by the large  colony of grain elevators at this port.  The alarm is general, made so by the  published statements of Hon. Mr. Tarte  upon tho policy of the Dominion government in the management of the St. Lawrence route. Particularly his statement  that the government had spent ninety  million dollars on canals, and avjis pro-  pared to spend millions more' to divert  tuide to the canals, has forced upon the  business? men of Buffalo the full significance of the competition to bo expected by tho St. Lawreuce route when a  fourteen fectdepth between Port Colborne  and Montreal has been attained. Local  interest is intensified by the knoAvledge  tliat n Buffalo syndicate, Avich undoubted  power to divert the grain trade to the  St, Lawirence route, is negotiating with  the Dominion government for a concession Avhich Avill eiuible them to make the  St. Lawrence route the greatest commercial highway on the continent. The superiority of the St. LjiAvrence river is no  longer questioned. It is beyond doubt  now that congress will be besieged this  session Avith demands to take OATer the  Erie cjinal and make efforts to prevent  successful competition by the St. Lawrence route.  Vice-President Hobart's Condition Serious.  Paterson, New Jersey, October 30.���  Late this afternoon vice-president Hobart's physician made a statement admitting that he Avas sinking. At the  house it Avas said that Mr. Hobart avjis  resting ea*sily^   A Bayonet Attack Repulsed.  Lorenzo Marquee, Oetober 30.���A dispatch received here today from Pretoria,  under   date    of   October    28th,    fiays: i  "General  Cinnje,  the Boer commander, j  THE PRESIDENTJFJHE C. P. R.  f {Delivers an Ultimatum to the C. P. N.  Victoria, October 30.���[Special to the  Tribune]���President Shaughnessy of the  G. P. R. delivered an ultimatum to the  -Canadian Pacific-Navigation Company-today, to the effect that if they do not  immediately improve the Victoria-Vancouver service, the raihvay company Avill  provide steamers of their oavu. President  Shaughnessy insists on a daylight service  of four hours each Avay, leaving Victoria  at breakfast time and returning in time  for dinner ashore, the lunch hour being  spent in Vancouver. No doubt he avjis  inspired by his experience on the trip  doAvn yesterday, Avhen there Avas a large  passenger list and consequent lack of  accommodation.   A Steamship Sinks a Ferryboat.  Nkw York, October 31.���A collision  occurred shortly after midnight off the  foot of Liberty street, North river, between an old Dominion line steamer and  the Pennsylvania ferryboat Chicago.  The ferryboat aviis cut in two and sank  in a few minutes. There Avere betAveen  thirty and forty people aboard. It is  supposed that seA-eral people Avere  drowned, though there is no positive  proof of this assertion.  Another Backslider.  Another mine has broke away from  the Mine Managers' Combine at Sandon,  as the following from the Sandon Review  goes to show: "It is generally understood that the Minnesota Silver Company  is going to put on a considerable force of  men to Avork the Ivanhoe aud other  claims. It is also not unlikely a step may  be taken shortly in the wtiy of putting  up the projected concentrator."  A Lively Slocan Town.  Slocan City is reported to be .so lively  that commercial travelers find it difficult  to get hotel accommodations there.  There ai-e over 200 miners at Avork ou  mining properties tributary to the town.  Newspaper Reports of the Fight.  London, October 30.���Tlie  Daily Telegraph has the following  account  of the  Ladysmith engagement from  its  special  correspondent at the front:  "Au indecisive    reconuoisance    occurred    today.  General   White   adviinced   before   daybreak (Monday) Avitli all  the available  forces from Ladysiuith, moving towards  Tinta Inyoni.   Two brigades Avere undei\  colonels Hamilton and  Howard, and another, with general Hunter, went towards  Bulwtin, Avhile two, conducted by major  Ardby,  inarched   on   our   extreme   left  beyond  the  old  camp.    The Boers AArere  found to be in  greiit force at all points.  Although  Ave Jiave several batteries of  artillery,   their   fire   failed   to   entirely  crush the enemy, until the Fifth Lancers  pluckily rode across the enemy's front  and  feigned  a retreat".    This,  however,  failed to' entice the enemy out, the Boers  only  replying Avith  a   shell  fire.     Thia  flank attack so  developed that colonel  Hamilton   had   to   reinforce   our   right  with three   batteries   and  the   Gordon  Highlanders  and  Devonshire and  Manchester   regiments    at    intervals.     Our  jirtillery then changed front aud a severe  artillery duel ensued, the guns generously  supporting the   reinforcing infantry as  they advanced.    Two batteries remained  in action until the 12-pouudcr Jind the  quick-firers of the navjii contingent came  into action.   The enemy had field pieces,  machine guns, and a 100-pouiuler.    General White iu_tlie tiftcrnoou_Avithdrew_his  forces upon  Ladysmith.    The losses on  the Boer side Avere considerable."  The correspondent of the Times at  Ladysmith says: "The action seemed to  be proceeding most satisfactorily Avhen  at 7.15 a> in. the enemy,' in large numbers,  Avith field guns, Maxims and 37-milliinetrc  guns, began to develop a heavy attack on  colonel GriniAVood's infantry. The cavalry brigade had moved up ou our right,  holding the parallel ridge over against  colonel Grim wood's position, jind practically acting as infantry. in the  meantime our batteries kept down  the siege gun fire upon Ladysmith  Avith shrapnel. At nine o'clock there  seemed to he a lull, as the enemy ou our  right brought further artillery to bear,  colonel GriniAvood, who Aviih three advancing battalion!-, had held the ridge  for five hours, suddenly fell back across  the line upon our guns. The Fifty-tlmd  battery pluckily pushed forward to eoArer  his Avithdrawal. Severe casualties oc-  ctured at this phase. The Fifty-third  battery held on against the croas-fire of  j'ifies and quick-firing gunp until the infantry Avps clear. The teams of the two  guns Avere damaged, and the battery  eventually retired, made-up teams extricating the tAvo guns. The cavalry, re-  maining unsupported, Avere forced to fall  back also. Then began a generjii retirement on Ladysmith. The guns' Avhich  had been covering the Devonshire regiment stoutly covered the final Avithdrawal. Tho enemy did not press, but  showed themselves in their positions in  great numbers, only to find that the  naval brigade from the PoAverful had arrived. Two quick-firing guns A\'ere  placed in position, and in five rounds  they had silenced theenemy's40-pounders.  Tho troop* Avere back in Ladysmith by 2  o'clock iu the afternoon.    The  casualties  caused by tlie enemy's artillery were not  severe.     The mounted battery   on the  left reported that it had suffered through  a   stampede^ of    guns.      Our   artillery,  cavalry, mounted infantry and volunteer  cavjilry  behaved   splendidly in difficult  circumstances.   Dr. Jameson ami sir John  Willoughby  'arrived    today   aud   Avere  spectators of the action."  :  The Avar correspondent of the Staiidai'd  Avith   the  Bi'itish   forces at  Ladysmith  telegraphing as to Monday's engagement  says: "During the opening stages of the  fight I -'attached  myself to the  centre  column.    We inarched out before daAvn,  and  after 'covering   three  miles  halted  ���under a kopje to aAvait developments.  In  the attack, the first shot  Avas fired at  5  a.  m.        It      came    from      Lombard's  Kop,    a     lofty     eminence   some     five  miles to the east of Ladysmith.    Battery  after battery went into action, .and gradually the  enemy's  fi re   slackened.    For  nearly two hours not a shot of ours Avas  returned,  ,saAre Avhen   'Long   Tom,'  the  mime our soldiers  had given to the Boer  40-pounder,  hurled a shell,  Avhich   Avas  folloAved Avith anxious eyes,-towards the  town    of     Ladysmith.     Presently   the  enemy's horsemen  Avere  seen  streaming  on a hill to our left.    Sheltered by rising  ground; tliey occupied:a ridge oii our left  flank, and there, hidden by the scrub and  trees,-  they  could   Avatch   the   turn   of  events in safety and  await their chance.  The  Devonshire regiment advanced towards  a  Kaffir  kraal under a hill, and  there they remained, with' orders ;not to  fire ii shot until  they Avere called on.  Only Avhen volleys Avere  heard  on  their  rear   and   flank    did   they    sIioav    the  least sign.of.--restlessness.    The  sound of  this firing, feeble though it seemed, satisfied us  tluit,the Gloueesters aud Irish  Fusileers  Avere* near.    There is no truth  iii   the   story    of  n    disaster    to   the  battalions     after     the     stampede    of  the   mountain   battery  mules.-   General  White and, general  Hunter aud the staff  ofiicers Avatehed the developments of the  artillery attack,   which   giive   the first  promise rof   a    realization    of   general  White's plans.   The enemy early showed  themselves along the ridges that lay beyond the  range of our guns,  aud from  time to time gave us an opportunity to  judge of their numbers.    At the  height  of the engagement the noise Avas almost  deafening.    Above the rattle of the musketry could be   heard  the  thud  of the  Maxims and  the  banging  of  the quick-  fiiing guns, which considerably added to  the difficulties our men had to encounter.  The  purpose  of the  recounoisan.ee had,  however,, been   gallantly  accomplished,  and our infantry began to fall back. This  movement wjis covered by cavalry,  .Some  of the troops  had  to  cross- open ground  toward the centre, and  while doing so  they Avere raked Avith a heavy fire.    The  retirement AA'as-.,  however, effected Avithout disorder or serious loss.    Our battel-  ies Avere got into position to secure the  AvithdraAval of other arms from molestation, but-the fortunate destruction of the  enemy's 'Long Tom' rendered such sot  vice unnecessary."   Another Account.    withdrawn. The movement Avas carried  out Avith great steadiness and deliberation, under cover of our guns, Avhich  made excellent practice. Some shells  were thrown into the toAvn from the  enemy's 40-pounders at a range of 0000  yards, but no damage Avas done. The  engagement lasted soA'eral hours, and resulted on our sido in casualties estimated  at 90 to 100. The Boer losses must have  largely exceeded this total.  The attack aviis admirably delivered by  our  right, and   the   Boers   a. ere fairly  driven out of   one  of their strongholds  near Lombard's Kop.    It avjis not possible, hoAveA-er, to., push  the success much  further, as beyond that point lay a long,  broken ridge.affordiug every kind of natural cover.    Under this  the enemy took  the fullest advantage.    Our  shells failed  to dislodge the Boers, and as the infantry  moved forward  in extended order they  came under a  heavy  and  Avell-directed  rifle fire, the  effects  of which Avere soon  apparent.    General White, who. was with  the  centre,, .seeing   that the troops on  the  right Avere  somewhat pressed, sent  to their assistance the Avhole centre column Avith the exception of the Devonshire  regiment.   The  battle   had  thus  lasted  four hours,  during Avhich  the  artillery  fire on  both sides  had  been  almost incessant.    Tlie naval  brigade,'wliich'* had  landed   at   Durban,    had    arrived     on  the    scene     toward   the    end.   of    the  fighting, aud  brought  tlieir heaA'y  guns  into     play     immediately.      Their     firing   Avas    magnificant.      At  the fourth  shot,    the    enemy's    40 - pounders    had  been    knocked   out    of    action.        The.  toAvn   is   iioav,    therefore,    freed   from  apprehension of bombardment. Throughout the engagement the Boers held their  ground*.with  courage and  tenacity, and  considering the intensity of our artillery  fire, they must have suffered severely.  Lady.smitij, October 30.���0 p.m.���The  advance was-made at daAvn Avith the object of shelling the Boers from the position Avhere yesterday they had mounted  a number of guns. On reaching the  spot, however, ic avjis found that tliey  had evacuated the position. The British  continued to advance Jind tho movement  developed into a roeonnoi.saiK'C in force.  The enemy were posted on a range of  hills, having a frontage of about sixteen  miles, Tho British force avjis disposed iu  the following order:  On the right, three regiments of caAr-  alry, four batteries of the Royal field artillery, and five battalions of infantry;  in the centre, three batteries of the Royal  field artillery, two regiments of cavalry,  and four infantry battalions ; and on the  left, the Royal Irish Fusileers, the Gloucestershire regiment, and the 15bh Mountain  battery. This force had been detailed to  guard our left flank at a late hour last  night. General White's plan of operations  Avas that as a movement developed, the  force constituting our centre, which aviis  dis-posed under cover of a kopje, about  three miles from tho town, should thioAv  itself upon the enemy, Avhile the left  flank aa'jis being held by the Fusileers and  the Gloueesters. The plan was avcII advised, but failed in execution, owing to  the fact that the Boer position Avhich  formed our objective point aviis evacuated. Our artillery quickly reduced the  volume of the enemy's fire, but the attack  delivered on our right fiank aviis the prin  cipal one, and the column avjis compelled to change The Boer attack had  been silenced for a time, and our infantry  advanced, covered by ca\ralry. The  enemy now began to dovelop a heavy  counter attack, and as thoy were in great  force numerically, general White gave  orders  for the  infantry to be gradually  THE BOERS REVEALED TACTICAL  Skill of the Highest Order. !  ���London, October '31.���Yesterday's  engagement at Ladysmith,  Avhich,  despite  the rather heavy losses, must be  regarded rather as Jin   extended  reconuoisance  or skirmish battle,  seems to make  little  change in the actual position.  ' It i.s disappointing to the British public  as again  revealing tactical skill  of au  unexpected  high order on the side of the  Boers.    Iif  addition to the possession of a number of  hejivy guns,  the transportation of which  causes Avonderment here, they have available   marvellous   ability.     Unless commanded  by skillful   European officers, it  is hardly considered  probable that Boer  farmers Avould have assumed a   feigned  position, as they evidently did in front of  the right column, Aviththe iutentionof re-  treating from it to tlieir real line   of defense, and of inducing the British to at-  tack over a fire-swept zone.   The special  dispatches   describing    the   engagement  fail to corroborate White's account  that  the Boers were pushed back several miles,  and that the only conclusion that can be  arrived at is tluit the  situation  aviis  extremely   inconclusive.      General   Buller  cannot arrive at the scene of fighting until the end of this Aveek.    Tn  the niean-  time general White Avill need all  his re-  souices  to   prevent   the   Boers   around  Ladysmith linking forces.  LadYpSahtii, October 30.���The naval  brigade arrived this morning at half-past  nine, and has just commenced firing with  six quick-firing gnus with great precision.  The Boer 10-pouudcrs, Avhich had again  begun to shell the town, avci'o temporarily  disabled at the third and fifth reports.  Brisk firing is in progress on the right  and left flank-.

The battery that aviis lost is probably one consisting of six two-and-a-half-  inch muzzle loaders jiud thirty-six mules.  General Buller Has  Arrived  at   Capetown.  London, October 31.���A dispatch from  Capetown announces the arrival in Table  bay of the Dunuotcr Ciistle transport,  last evening, with general sir Redvers  Buller and his staff, who are expected to  land this morning. They will meet with  a tremendous ovation in Capetown. It is  reported rrom Pretoria that 200 of the  British wounded from Dundee have arrived there and have been furnished accomodations in the state school buildings.  Mafeking Has a Belt Railway.  * London, Oetober lil. -The Capetown  cot respondent of the Daily Mail says lie  learns that colonel Baden-Powell, the  Biitish commander at Mafeking, has laid  ji railroad iu <i complete circle around  Mafeking, and is running an armored  train around the town, ready to meet the  Boers at any point-  ATLIN NOT LIKELY TO BECOME  Famous as a Placer Mining District*  J.  C.  Gwillim passed through Nelson  yesterday on his way to OttaAva.  During  the past summer  Mr. Gwillim has had  charge   of   the   Dominion  government'-  geological -work in the Atlin district, and  he is therefore in a position to speak intelligently of the district and its possibilities.    Mr.  Gwillim does  not expect the  Atlin district to ever become famous as a  placer mining district.    The present producing area of the Atlin i.s about 10 miles  Avide by 20 miles long and the run of the  claims pay about Rve dollars per day per  man.    This, Avhilo it might"be considered  .a  very fair  return in  other sections,  is  not sufficient to keep  men as against the  ���attractions  of   the  Cape Nome district.  Another   drawback   to    Atlin    is    the  small   size   of   the   claims.       The   size  of the claim in Atlin is the same as  Avas  permitted in the rich  creek  diggings  in  Cariboo.    These small  claims, Avhile desirable in a rich camp, naturally  retard  deArelopment iu a camp, where the return  does not exceed good Avages.    In shallow  diggings the difficulty does  not present  itself so "much as iu deep diggings, and in  Atlin no attempt has been made to Avork  the deep diggings.    Althoughthe  entire  country  has  virtually beeii staked,  no  prospecting has been done outside of the  present  producing area,Hud  there aro  hundreds of claims upon which no work  has been done save the driving of stakes. -  In  the opinion  of   Mr.  Gwillim,   tliere  arc  two  things  Avhich   will   make   tho  future'of the Atlin camp." The one is the  absorption of the. present ;placer  claims  by'hydraulic companies, and the other is  the prospecting of the country for quartz.  From his  own  observations during the  past summer, 'Mr. Gwillim says that  the  indications are very favorable for quartz  discoveries, but as  yet  little attention  has been given to anythiifg  saAre  placer  and hydi-.iulic mining.  Two Men Mysterously Disappear.

He left the mill six Aveeks ago,  to go to Robson, and Avas never seen since.  There are some Avages coming to him,-  but no trace can be secured of his Avhere-  abonts. The matter will be referred to  provincial constable Forrester.  THE WORK IS LIKELY TO BE DONE  '"By Local Contractors.  It is generally believed that the Canadian Pacific Avill begin -work on that portion of the Crow's Nest Pass raihvay between Kelson and a point opposite Balfour within the next thirty days, and it  is not unlikely that tho work a.ill beJ  awarded to local contractors. 11 is known  that local contractors have tendered for  the Avork at prices that are said to be satisfactory to the compauy. One of the  conditions of the tender is that all sup-  plics used Avill be purchased-from local  dealers. Were the Canadian Pacific to  adopt the policy of letting Avork to local  contractors-, Avith the stipulation that all  supplies should be purchased iu homo  markets, both the company and the country would be gainers. The country  gained little through the building of the Columbia & Western  extension by illien contractor?:, who purchased the bulk of their .supplies in tlio  United .States, and made money by  selling sub-contractors supplies at  prices from 25 to 50 per cent higher than  they could be obtained for from local  dealers, who havo a stake in the country.  A Mine Managed by Mining Men.  A. L. Davenport, formerly owner of the  Poorman mine, in tho Nelson gold belt,  but now a niining broker in .Spokane, i.s  in Nelson. Mr. DuA-euport is a largo  owner in the Rambler-Cariboo mine,  Slocan district, a property that is in  shape to pay dividends- for many mouths  to t�� .me, and which, it is said, luis broke  away from the Mine Managers' Combine  of Sandon. The mine is stocked for  $1,230,000, of which $250,000 is treasury  stock that has not been sold. The improvement work has been done and all tho  plant paid for fi'om the proceeds of ore  shipped. The stock is selling at 00 cents,  and hard to get at that.  Slocan Lake Ore Shipments.  The ore shipments from .Slocan lake  points aggregate 20&S tons since January  1st of this year. The shippers Avere:  Bosun 500 tons,, Marion 20, Enterprise 680,  Tamarac 20, Black Pi-inco 40, Chapleau  15, Comstock 120, Emily Edith (50, Fidelity .'i, Noonday 520, Vancouver 320, Wakefield 580.

It is safe to say-  that the  cost of breaking doAvn a ton of  ore in tlie Le Itoi mine, or driving a foot of  tunnel in tlie mines'of Rossland, is 50 per  cent more expensive than like 'work in  the mines  in  Slocan district.    The rock  is   very   hard   at    Rossland   and   very-  soft in the .Slocan.    If  this  is a statement of fact, a haml-driller can  do as  much Avork in a SIocjui mine as a machine  driller- cjui  in a Rossltind mine.    Apart  from thipS, by giving  the  eight-hour Jaw  a trial, the mine nmiiiigors  at  Rossland  aro  showing  the  Avorld that there are  dividend-paying mines in. British Columbia at a time Avium capital is looking for  a safe place to-make investmeiits.

Well Supplied With Arms and Ammunition.  Manila, October 30.���The Spanish commission, which entered the insurgent lines  ix n?onth ago with money to relieve tho  aa'iui ts of seAreralthousandSpaiiish military  and civil prisoners, returned to Angeles  today. The commissioners report that  they spent most of the time iu Tarlac  and vicinity, Avhere tliere are .some 200  sick Spaniards in the hospital. The Filipinos ill-treat and ill-feed them, refusing  to .surrender them, as Avell as the other  Spanish prisoners, in the hopes of compelling .Spain to recognize the independence of the islands. There are fourteen  American prisoners, they say, at Tarlac,  all of Avhom arc Avell treated. Lieutenant Gilinore, of the gunboat Yorktown,  avIio fell into the hands of the insurgents  at Bjilei", on the e;ist coast of Luzon,  last April, Avhere the Yoi-ktown had gone  on a mission to relieve the Spanish gitr-  rison, is a,t Bingjie. According to their  statements, Aguinaldo Avas still at Tarlac  Avith 3000 troojis. He wishes to continue  the Avar, although he has a high opinion  of the Americjiu officers and soldiers. He  is said to be Avell supplied Avith arms and  ammunition, and he is able to groAV  plenty of rice in the north. /  Killed in a Duel.

Mr. Tarte, ab a meeting of the electors  at Vincent do Paul on Saturday jvfter-  noon, declared the reason of opposing the  sending* the Canadian contingent to  South Africa was due to the precedent it  cieated when the colonies had no rept-e-  sontabiou in tho imperial p.vrliament.

It has been ascertained that the Natal  Dutch have been actively assisting the  Boers by carrying information regarding  the British movements. It seems that  although the landings and departure of  the troops are effected by niglit, and the  greatest secrecy is maintained, yet the  enemy somehow gets information despite  the severe censorship. - It is also believed  in Durban that the Dutch have assisted  the Boers by-pointing out British officers  in the battles.  w  m  J -j-*****. *s*:l  -s-.e.-iHi.-i  �����5**_r;,=2pp"s^  Appreciation  w  w  w  iti)  iti)  %  iti)  iti)  To dispose of an entire car of high-class iron and  brass beds m 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.
