 GENERAL   BULLER'S   PROBABLE  Plan of Campaign.  New York, November i}.���The Loudon  correspondent of tlie Tribune, cabling as  to the probable plan of  campaign  to  be  adopted by general Buller, says :   General Buller's plan of campaign   is  a   secret  which  is  not even  known  at the war  office, and it certainly lias not been  confided to any correspondent,    lie received  full advice  and   suggestions   from   lord  "Wolseley and  sir  Evelyn  Wood   before  leaving   London,  but retained  absolute  liberty of action,  as  was  befitting  the  commander of tlio forces in South Africa,  which has  been  the  grave  of so  many  reputations, military and civil.   Tho mili-  tai-y experts here   can  only hazai'd  surmises respecting his probable  course jind  the tactics in dealing with the  situation,  now that he has mastered the details ou  the grounds.    They  begin   by  assuming  that he will take warning from what has  happened in   Natal,  and  not allow  tho  colonial   authorities   to     influence    his  action.  It is now well known that Natal  oflicials weie largely responsible not  only for the separation of the field forces  into two camps 10 miles apart, also for  the selection of Ladysmith jis a post  which must be defended at Jill hazards,  and it is Jilleged that they made streneous  efforts to have Laing's Nek occupied.  Njiturally, they were anxious to have  upper Natal defended and their councils  prevailed except in the single detail of  the occup;ition of Laing's Nek. The  retreat from Gleneoe and the defence  under tlie worst possible conditions of  Ladysmith, a town that is commanded  by several concentric circles of outlying  hills, are the results of provincial control  over military plans.  Skilled experts do not hesitate to say  that Gleneoe should never have been occupied, and that Ladysmith should only  have been held temporarily and without  concentration there of the supplies and  military stores, the garrison retiring behind Tugela, destroying the bridges and  drawing the Boers farther from their  bases, and conducting a dilatory and defensive campaign until the arrival of the  army corps.  General Buller is not likely to pay heed  to any suggestions or entrejilies from the  Soutli African   oflicials.      lie   Avill   deal  with the situation on military  lines  and  with an inflexible purpose.      He is not a  diplomatist^ but a self-reliant, obstinate  military man of great foi��ce of character.  He will make his-own plans, Jind will not  be dissuaded from carrying them  out by  talk Jibout disaffected districts or special  X*tleas as for the defence of every menaced  frontier or exposed town.     Experts who  are carefully studying the  military  problem expect him to send at least 10,000  men to Durban as  soon  as  the   ejirliest  battalions of the army corps arrive at the  Gape.     Probably lord Methun's  division  will bo  detached for  this  purpose,  and  possibly will not land in Capetown.      In  tliis way it is considered possible to have  10,000 fresh  troops  in  lower Niital   by  November 15th and in rejidiness  to protect Pietenuaritz.bu.rg and push on to the  relief of general  White.      The  bulk   of  Buller's force, when assistance to White's  gaarisou has been provided, will probably  he concentrated at  De Aar  .1 unction for  operations for the   relief   of  Kimberley  and the direct movement upon   Bloem-  fontciu.      This part of the plan has been  clearly indicated by the  accummulation  of military stores at De Aar, which is tlie  best strategic point south of  the Orange  river, and  has  connections with   Capetown, Port Elizabeth Jind East London,  '"Tlie"Dutch"allies"are_"eviderttly~antici-  piiting both features of general Bullet's  probable plan, for they are threatening  Piotermaritzburg from the Zulu bordei.  and have iilso crossed the Orange river at  two points, Colcsburg and Bethulie. The  fornier movement may he an empty  menace, and the Orange river i-nids may  be designed to block any advance upon  Bloemfontein from Port Elizabeth, which  is a nearer base of supplies than Capo-  town for a liirge army.  Mafeking, Kimberley and Ladysmith  are now cut off from general Buller's  headquarters and depend upon Natal  runners for currying messages to the  outer world. The latest tidings from  Mafeking and Kimbei ley, received before  'midnight, were meagre but reassuring,  aud the silence from Ladysmith has been  unbroken with the exception of a few de-  ��� layed dispatches sent before the wire was  cut. These indicated that the garrison  wjis hot yet in immediate danger, and  tluit the Boers were slowly con_pleting  "bhe investment of the town by throwing  a larger force between it and Colenso.  The colonial office has also received information that the British -forces liave  withdrawn from Coienso. This leaves  the bridge over the Tugela at the mercy  of the Boers. The latest press dispatches  before communication was broken reported the renewal of the artillery duel  Jit Ladysmith. The best military experts  agree that general White cannot have  less than 12,000 or 13,000 men available  for the defence of Ladysmith.  Raising a Benefit Fund For Veterans.  London,  November 5.���The   theatres  MONDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 6, 1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.

Mrs. Paget,  wife of colonel ArthurT?ag��t, now on his  wjiy to South Africa, is  greatly interested in tliese  efforts  to raise  money,  and  special performances are  announced  on  eveiy side.    The climax will probably be  attended   by   the   performance   at  Her  Majesty's theatre, in the middle of January, when the greater part of the  dress  circle will bo utilized with the royal box.  The entire royal family  from the  queen  down has  promised its patronage.    The  price of seats luis not been fixed, but  the  stalls will be sold for at  least ��20  each.  Beerbohm Tree  is giving all  except  the  actual  expenses   of his  theatres to the  fund.    Mrs. Beerbohm Tree is nightly reciting   ltudyard   Kipling's poem,   "The  Absent-Minded  Beggar,"  at  the  Pjilnce  music hall, receiving ��100  per  week  for  her services and contributing this to  the  soldier's fund.    On Thui-sday  niglit  her  plea,  "Pay, Pay,  Pjiy,"  met  with  such  success, that she was almost driven from  the stage by the hail of silver thrown by  the enthusiastic audience.

The accompanying poem is Rndyard Kipling's contribution to a fund for- the  wives and children of the British army recruits sent to South Africa. He sold it to  the London Divily Mail for $1250, to appeal- on Tuesday, with the understanding that  simultaneous copyright service could be secured for $25. That amount the San Francisco Examiner paid, and on the same day published "The Absent-Minded Beggar."  Of all the proceeds Mr. Kipling receives nothing.  had assembled to witness the landing.

London, November 5.���The order for  the moblizjvtion of the militia calls out  0000 men in London alone. Among these  are sevei'jvl members of parliament.  The acceptance of the offers of sir  William McCormack,Dr. Frederick Treves  and other eminent civilian surgeons  for service iu South Africa, has drawn  attention to the serious undermining of  the army medical staff. The actual  strength of the department is only 810,  which is 20 per cent below the figures of  forty years ago and Jictually fifty  officers below the absolute minimum decided upon in 188*1. This state of affairs  is due, doubtless, to the insufficient compensation offered.  Deserters from both the . army and  navy continue to give themselves up, in-  order to be returned to tlieir, regiments  or ships for ^ictive service. Scarcely a  day passes without the London magistrates having to deal with a half dozen  or-so cases of this character, and as the  deserters walk out of the doek in charge  of a military escort, they often turn to  the magistrate with ji hearty " God bless  you," or "Thank you, sir." Many of  them came-f rom foreign countries, including the United .States.  Although agreeing that the mobilization, so far as it has Iteen carried on, is  well done, the foreign military attaehees  are anxious to see the effect of a more  severe test. Said one of them to the correspond en fc of the Associated Press today : " When England calls out a second  jind a third army corps, which I believe  is quite possible, it will be time enough  to say Avhether the mobilization system  is as excellent jis at pi'esent seems to be  the case. Should a third corps ever be  wanted, I think you Avill find the percentage of reservists avIio ansAvered the  first call will be reduced by nearly 50 per  cent.  The efforts of his constituents to induce Dr.-Gavin-BroAvn-Olark^-the -Liberal-  member of parliament for Caithnessshire,  to resign on account of his pro-Boer attitude have thus far been fruitless. Mean  while Dr. Clark publishes a letter received  from the TransvaaL secretary of state,  written the day the Boer ultimatum avjis  presented, in the course of Avhich Mr.  Reitz says that Dr. Clark's protest against  the British action has been like " the  voice of one crying into a Avilderness of  jingoism, lace hatred, and militarism."  The Possibility of a European Coalition,  London,     November   5.���Sir   Charles  .Dilke contributes to the new two-cent  weekly, "The Review of tho Week," his  views on the possibility of a, European  coalition against Great Britain asfollOAVS,:  "There is no doubt that avo are more generally disliked now than at any time before, The United States is more friendly  than at any previeus time, but our unpopularity in France, Germany, Russia,  Spain and Holland, taken together, Avas  never so grejit. Austria-Hungarian opposition is, on the Avhole, Jigainst our  cause in the present struggle, and the  Italian public is less friendly than at any  time since 1883. The elements of cgjiH-  tion, jis seen at first sight, appear to exist  almost jis plainly as they did when the  coalition against us avji>s formed at the  time of the American 'revolutionary Avar.  The government's preparation of a fleet  is evidently justified, Jind the concentration of the Italian fleet has uot unnaturally folloAved. I am convinced, however,  that there is no serious risk of ji coalition  against us on this occasion, and not much  probcibility of ji serious attempt to raise  questions disagceeable to us at a moment  especially chosen on account of our absorption in South African affairs. If our  public, spoilt by easy successes over the  blacks, shogkl become demoralized by dis  aster, that Avould be another matter. The  policy of Italy is not hostile, in spite of  the disagreeable'manifestation of a part  of the Italian press, and the Italian government would hold the Italian people iu  support of their interest, Avhich is to side  Avith the first naval power. The emperor  of Austria is a firm upholder of peace,  and he has prestigo in all international  questions. The emperor of Russia is  peacefully inclined. The emperor of Germany and his advisers have also complete  belief in the present power of the British  fleet. Franco, though uneasy, is not anx-  ious to enter into Avai". Holland is profoundly peaceful. Spain alone appears to  me at the moment to be in Europe a disturbing cause. Her recent misfortune  makes her naturally inclined to stir tilings  up; but even if she desired to provoke n  coalition against us, she Avill, I fear, be  convinced that at present she will have  no backers."   Scenes at the War Office Heart-Rending.  Neav Y^ohk, November 5. ���The Loudon  correspondent of the World says : Agonizing scenes occur djiily at the war office.  Throngs of Avomen and men of iill classes  await the news of relsitives in action.  The correspondent met there today a retired officer and his wife, Avhose son is tit  Ladysmith. They said of thirteen officers of different regiments Avho journeyed  to the Cape in the sjime troopship, their  only sou among them, tAvelve have already been killed, and he is the only one  suiwiving. They pass practically the  Avhole day awaiting to hear of him. The  scenes made by Avomen at the Avar office  jire so heart-rending that a special lobby  is uoav set apart for them. Many ladies,  as Avell as wives of privates, take their  place there and remain from morning till  night, caring nothing about eating anything until entirely exhausted. None of  the SAvell regiments, like the Guards, tlie  10th Hussjirs, or the Iuneskillen di'a-  goons, havo as yet been in action, so  smart society is only remotely affected.  Kruger Appeared to Oppose the War.  London*, November 5.���Conyngham  Greene, avIio avjis Bi'itish agent at Pretoria, arrived in Eugland yesterday from  the Cape and Avent to Winchester. He  said his personal relations with president  Kruger Avere entirely satisfuctoty to the  last moment of his stay in tho Transvaal,  but his manner implied as much could  not be said Avith reference to secretary  Reitz. He had little to say about the  situation, which had passed out of the  sphere of diplomacy. His health has  greatly improved during the Aoyjige. A  prominent Uitlander, fresh from Johannesburg, avIio travelled by the same ship,  remarked that president Kruger had  seemed honestly dismayed over the prospect of Avar}" and that he avjis supported  in this feeling by Mr. Hofmeyer, but that  Reitz, cooperating Avith president Steyn  jmd certain Dutch Afrikander leaders in  Cjipe Colony, had been mostly responsible  for the catastrophe which had over-  Avhelmed South Africa. This Uitlander,  avIio Avas oue of the last Englishmen to  leaA'e Johannesburg, reported that the  general opinion there avjis that Steyn liad  dreams of becoming dictator of u great  Dutch republic.

'-[Delayed],���  Wounded Arrive at  Capetown, November  The ariival of the British Avounded from  Ladysmith, by Avay of Durban, la^t evening, created a scene of popular enthusiasm on the  part of a  large crowd that  Assurances That Come Too Late.  Paris, November 5.���Dr. Leyds, the  European agent of the Transvaal government, authorizes the announcement, that  in the event of the Boers being victorious, they Avill immediately order the disarmament of all their troops, and the  present taxes on mines, Avhich are imposed for the purpose of providing furids  for the defence of the republic, Avill be  abolished. President Kruger has already  given assurances to the powers on this  point.  ,   v   The Dutch are Enthusiastic.  TheN{��__3I VE, November 5.���The enthusiasm over the reported success of the  Boers is extreme. The news, hour by  hour, is eagerly watched for, and the  speeches of deputies in the staates general are constantly interrupted as rumors  or dispatches come in. All the Dutch  newspaper offices are flying the Transvaal flags.  LIBERALS  MAY  BE RETURNED  To Power as the Result of the War.  New Yoric, November 5.���Cabling to  the Tribune from London, jis to the  possibility of the Liberal party returning  to poAver, as a result of the Avar in South  Africa, Mr. Ford says : "An old parliamentary hand forecasts the return of the  Liberals to poAver as a sequel to the Avar.  He asserts that the Unionists Avill be exposed to double lines of fire from the  peace men, avIio belieAre that AArar might  have beeu averted by tactful diplomacy,  aud from the sincere imperialists and  sympathetic friends of the soldiers, aa'Iio  jire already secretly^ censuring the government for' having " made inadequate  preparations for-.a sudden outbreak of  hostilities. Political prophesy is never  more unsafe than in Avar time, but. it is  certain that many stout-hearted Unionists hju-e been shaking their heads  ominously and declaring tluit thegovei-n-  ment luis severely tried the confidence of  the country. The pleti jiow heard, on  every side, is that Avhile the ministers  during the long poriod of negotiations  made too great a display of military activity to promote the ends of peace, they  neglected to place Natal and the Avestern  border in a proper state 4of defence for  Avar, so that the British garrisons Avere  left on the outbreak of hostilities in possession of bad strategic lines and in the  presence of jui overwhelming force of the  enemy. After ths-ee Aveeks of Avar, 'the  British losses exceed two thousand men,  and Ladysmith, Mafeking and Kimberley  jii-e closely invested. Cape Colony is invaded at two points below the Orange  river and lower Natal threatened fi-om  Zululand. John Bull, after his first  burst of over-confidence and elation over  delusi\rc bulletins-of-A'ictory, lias-a-wak--  eued to the seriousness of the situation.  The truth is now known that the Boers  wei'e Avell prepared for Avar,  Avherejis too much AA'oi'k Avai  cut out for the British commanders  and garrisons, and the ministers are held  to a full responsibility for a situation  humilating to British pride. While it in  premature to conclude that the Liberal  party, after drifting helplessly in crosscurrents for yeai's, may now be caught by  the flood tide of popular resentment  against the goveriiiuent for exposing the  army to a defensive campaign, for which  it aa'jis ill-prepared and heavily overmatched, it i.s fairly certain that there is  a stejidiiy growing feeling of irritability  and dissatisfaction in tho country at the  conduct of the Avar during early stages  of the campaign.  This aviII pass awayr if there are no re-  verses the next fortnight aud general  Buller handles the reinforcements and  restores the prestige of British arms but  the Liberals luive been gaining political  recruits steadily during the last few  Aveeks. Imperialists like sir Charles Dilke  will have destructive criticism to offer on  the ground that .adequate preparations  for Avar were neglected and the flower of  the British army avus betrayed and sacri-  Sieed ; and patriotic Englaud with a keen  sense of obligations to her brave soldiers  and snilois will turn in Avrathful displeasure nguinst the ministers if they are  finally convicted of lack of judgment in  underrating tlie Boer resources for avju1  and courting reverses, AA'hich include the  burden of war, foment rebellion in Cape  Colony, and impjiir the prestige of the  empirc. The oi'oaker*- will, however, be  silenced if Buller in the course of a  month drives the Boei-s before him and  opens the Avjiy for a  speedy   triumph of  GENERAL BULLER HEARD FROM  All was Well at Ladysmith on Friday.  London, November 5.���The war office  issued the following at 11:40 to-night  from general Buller to the secretary of  State for war : " CapetoAvn, November  5���8:40 p.m.���The commandant at Durban sends the following, received from  Ladysmith by pigeon post, dated November 3rd : Yesterday general French  Avent out Avith cavalry and field artillery,  and effectively shelled the Boer lartger  Avithout loss on our side.

The arguments used by the  Miner could  with equal fofee  be used  against the Miner.   Asa bu&incss venture  it is di.sej-ijnhutting agnint the people  of  Bosslandj as the following .figures go to  show:     Its   siib.seription. .rates   to the  people of Rossland-lire':' 'daily per inonth  by eiiniei', $1; daily per month by mail,  .$1 ; daily per half ye;ir by mail, $5 ; daily  per yeai', $10. The subscription rates of  the News-Advertiser to the people of  Vancouver are: daily per inonth by  earlier, GO cents; per six months, $3.25 ;  per year, $6. Tub Tribune is delivered  at the door of every residence and business liouse in Nelson six days a week for  a dollar a month; for three months, $2.50;  for one year, $10 ; by mail for one month,  50 cents ; for three months, $1.25 ; for six  months, $2.i>0; for one yeai1, $.5. It will  thus be seen that the Miner is overcharging the people of Rossland (estimating its circulation iu that town at  600), $240 a mouth, or $2880 a year,  wheji compared wilh tlie piicethe people  of Vancouver pay for the News-Ad\ej--  tiser, and about half that amount when  compared with tho price the people of  Nelson pay for The Trihunk. The Miner  should pi'actiee what it preaches.  Tub Victoiia Colonist is attempting to  make political cjipital out of the failure of a young man named Pooley to  secure a commission in the Canadian contingent. Young Pooley is ji lieutenant in  the militia* in A^ictoiia and his father  happened to be a -member of cx-proniior  Turner's government. If young Pooley  had been anxious to help fight the  battles of his country he "would have  done as other young commissioned officers  have done. lieutenant Ilart-McIIai'g of  the Rossland company resigned his commission and went as a private. A dispatch from Halifax says that among tho  privates in the Halifax contingent are  oue captain and five lieutenants, These  oifieers*-voluntarily-resigned "thehr com-  missions in oi'der to take their place jis  privjites. Young Mr. Pooley may yet  have a chance to .show that he is something jnore than, a dress-parade soldier.

This i.s pi avo news-  from Africa, and it  is impossible at thi.s hour to estimate the  extent  or  effects of  the disaster  to  .so  largo a portion   of general White's coin-  nijiud.     The capture   of  the   thirty-six  officers,  nearly two thousand  men  and  several  guns  exhausts the  mathematics  of tho  disaster so far us the facts  are  know n.    These figures  are bad  enough,  but the disaster is at its woi'st in its possible effect upon  the late of Ladysmith  and Lhc future of British power in South  Africa.    There is greater peril in the possibility that encouraged by their success  the Boei'S may be Jible to take Ladysmith  and   complete   the   ruin   of sir   George  White's army.    It  is  to be  hoped   that  the main jirmy is in a  position  to  nuike  good its defence of Ladysmith, and il   so  tho events of  yesterdjiy  will  sink  to  ji  place with the disasters which are morally humiliating but not materially  disas-  ti*on.s.    Braddock   with " colonel ��� .George  Washington met a..-vvoi'se defeat at the  uiids of the Princh and Indian---*,' and .Iti 3  calamities did not become the foundation  of French power on this continent. Loi'd  Chelmsford led nearly nine hundred men  into a trap' at lsandula, and Cetewayo  Avas not able to build a Zulu .empire on  his massacre of so many soldiers.  Sitting Bull wiped Custer and his  United States troopers out at Big  Horn, but he was not able to base enduring power.oir that signal success. These  historic disasters have a more or less  close relationship to the capture of the  two regiments and the mountain battery  near Ladysmith. These disasters -were  all due to the bad generalship which enabled an enemy better acquainted with  the country to surround an -inferior  force. The great point of difference is  that the Biitish soldiers are in the hands  of a people subject to jill the laws of  civilized warfare, and the fact tliat so  many Boer prisoners are in the hands of  the British is a guarantee tliat the British prisoners Avill come to no harm.  She is Not English, But Dutch.  Olive Schreiner's right to pi'esent the  English view of the Transvaal conflict  is questioned by prominent Englishmen  here who have lived in South Africa.  They assert that while her mother is an  English woman her father is a German of  Hebrew descent, jind that her husband is  a Dutchman and her immediate circle of  relatives and friends are also Dutch and  excessivaly clauuish. They also state  that while Olive Schreiner is. -partisan to  the Dutch interests, her . motJier,who is  her only purely English relative, is  strongly anti-Boer in sentiment, and  that the gifted authoress' younger brother  shares his mother's English sympathies.  Her mother is perhaps the only person in South Africa to whom-: Cecil  Rhodes constantly writes, and their  fi iendship is close and of long  standing. After the publication of  " Peter Halkett of Mashonaland "Olive  Schreiner sent ji handsome present to her  mother out of the royalties on the book.  Her mother converted this gift into a  subscription to the fund Avhich was raised  to honor Cecil Rhodes with a public reception and dinner upon his return*to  South Africa after the parliamentary investigation atLondon. Mother and daughter are wholly at vaiiance in their views of  English policy in Soutli Africa. It is  only fair to add that those who offer  these stiictui-es upon Olive Schreiner's  nianifesto are themselves strong partisans.    The Transvaal at the Paris Exposition.

DRAFTS I8SUKD   OOI.T.KOTIONB MADK; KTO.  SAVINGS BANK BRANCH.  CURRENT RATE OK INTEREST PAID  THE   EVE   OF   WAR   IN- LONDON.  You would -never believe from the look  of London streets nnd the people in them  that the country was ou the eve of war.  It  is nob inucli of a war, of course, from  an  English point  of view.   Just  one  of  those  little,   foregone-conclusion   armed  "crushes out" in which England for years  has  delighted to play the leading part.  Were it otherwise, the idea of war would  never have got beyond the point of suggestion in the columns of the sensational  press's evening editions.    England never  goes to war in these days unless she can  feel assui-ed   of a wtilk-over.   And, Jifter  all, she is right.    At  all events,  her men  at the helm are.    Lord Salisbury and Mr.  Joe  Chainberhiiu know just how far to  go, or rather, who the people tire tigjiinst  whom  they can safely go.    Now if the  Boers    were   Prance,   or   Germany,   or  Russia, naturally the  cjiuse of the. poor  ill-used Uitlanders would fall about on a  par    with   the    massacred   Armenians,  whose part it did not seem right to titke  if the doing of it.caused a European Avar.  Besides,i the Armenians Jire not Englishmen, like the Uitlanders���just christians,  no more.    That makes a lot of difference,  of course.    England is the great christian  nation of the globe.    At all events, that  is wluit she delights iu thinking herself.  Yet she hud not a hand to hold out to her  .��� christian brethren, such as she is holding  out  today .to,the Transvaal  Uitlanders.  You- see there is~a~ wide  difference between the Boer and Russia, and Armenia  lias not the gold and dhimonds of South  Africa. ' , " ���     ,  At the railway.stations, it.is true, you  do see signs of impending strife in tho ar-  rivafaud departure of khaki-clad warriors,"  "horse, foot, and dragoons," and artillery,  as well.    But unless you know a war wjis  on haud, the brown-liollaud clad hordes  might  be  iissembling for some, military  manoeuvres,  or sham  fight, or. royal review at' Aldorshot,  so of teu   do  these  bloodless    campaigns   and  actions   tjike  place among tlio-'Bi-itish arriiy.    The recruiting sergeants who patrol Trafalgar  square,  tapping  witli   their  canes    the  shoulders  of likely young men  for the  army, tell a creditable story of a boom  that has  steadily increased during the  past mouth.    At the same time the quality ��� of recruits has  improved.    It is not  merely the  disbanded militiamen, Jifter  having  "got their  chests  up,"  who are  crowding into the army, but, said au officer, "young men like city clerks, wearing  collars dud ties, who write a good fist, are  spitting  fire all over them to  fight the  Boers."    Another said lie _liad_ enl is ted  some "top-hatted gents, who produced  Cambridge  university certificates."     lie  conjectured that many joined with the  intention of buying their discharge after  tlie Transvaal trouble was over.    Ib was  a ttiste of active service they wanted.  Love of their country and a detestation  of the Boer appeared to be the impelling  motives.   I saw two young artillery officers at Waterloo (tlio station)  the othei'  day, waiting for the train that was  to  land them at Southampton, for embarkation to the Cape.    Fine, fresh-faced, typical young Englishmen, as you see them at  the public-schools in their last year, or at  tho universities���just fresh out of Woolwich, no doubt, jind off to their first campaign of real war.    You would think,, to  look at them as they chaffed and laughed  together and   smoked  cigarettes,  while'  they swung up and down  the platform'  with clanking scabbards and spurs, that  they felt'themselves  on  the eve of no  more dangerous   an expedition   than a  field-day in the Long  valley or on Salisbury   Plain.    Bub   young    soldiers   are  pretty much the same the world over,  and no doubt the Spanish  war provided  many such sights to American eyes among  their own soldier boys.  Then you would hardly believe there  was a big international yacht-race going  on���a series of races, in fact. During the  djty there is ��� no indication, of it. You  never hear ib mentioued. Perhaps the  fact that Lipton is nob ji swell and is  rather a green and unknown yachtsman,  mjiy have something to do with the  apathy which reigns in the West End,  from the clubs in Piccjidilly to the nmu-  skms in Park Lane. It is true that the  Hights' ofthe races���two have gone already���crowds have .gathered to watch  for the flash of'a green or red lightfrom  the Harmswprth roof, which was.to tell  if the Shamrockor .Columbia had won.  Is n<>w prepared to issue-Drafts^and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, M. S.,rAtliif,- B. C, and  Dawson City, Yultoi-* District.  But a London street crowd at night is���  well, most people who have been in London at all know what it is composed of.  Its component pai'ts are hardly of a character to give much support, to. yachting,  so far as opinions go, or cash,.either, or  to be indicative of genuine national taste.-  Hiitp,cuiiluckily, even this small bit of enthusiasm is likely to grow dim. .Twice  have the crowd watched in vaiu>.juid, in  keeping with the traditions of ir London  crowd when disgusted, the "boos!" jind  "yahs !" which rent the air on the news  each night that there was no race were  not exactly in favor of a continuance of  interest. The fact that the Shamrock  wjis in front ou the occasion of each finish  was, however,"a ray of light from that*  side.  It is surprising how much you see and  hear every day that shqw.s (what I call)  the gi'adual Americjinisiiug of the English  people.    How  gradually and surely are  the old, smoky, fog-begrimed, small-windowed,    prison looking    buildings    and  houses disappearing from London streets  ���the  houses tluit Dickens used to describe.    And.in their place are fine sky-  scrapei's with lofty ceilings and wide windows, imposing entrances, and  brightly  painted  decorations���in fact the  buildings and  houses in  the architecture and  erection of which New York has long set  the  fashion.    Then  look at the double-  leaded-display lines in the papers!    It is  true the Times will not give in, but sticks  to the old plan which compels the reader  to wade through a column to get the pith  of a  paragraph.    But the Telegraph and  Daily News long since began the innovation, while  the Daily Mail might be the  yellowest "New York .sheet you ever saw.  Again: you see "saloon" instead of "bar"  ���uot very often, it is true, but enough to  show the thin edge litis already been applied and the fissure is widening.    The  use of "catch on," and "tumble," "guess,"  and "Great Scot!" both in  speech   and  ,type seems to increase daily. .

But then yon  would think Mr. Chotite was an Englishman, to look at liis attire.  ONE  OF MONTANA'S PIONEESS.  Mauy men ' whoso names aro linked  with incidents in Montana's early history  were in the gathering of Montana pioneers at Virginia, last week. Beyond dispute, the central figure for the occasion  was Henry F. Edgar, one of the six men  who discovered gold in the Alder gulch,  the man who pjirined the first gold from  Alder creek, the man who gave to the  gulch its name. In jill assemblages in  the old town he wjis the one to whom  most honor wjis accorded. He was invariably called to a seat at the chairman's right hand in all  the  meetings, he  wjis   Uie constant   and    uncomplaining  mark for a do/eu kodaks in the hands of  the young people of the town, lie wtis  shown attention everywhere.  Yet all the honors and all the attention shown him, Mr. Edgar bore with a  modesty that was most pleasing. While  the central figure in every group he  never lead the conversation. He talked  little", yet ho was always ready to express carefully his opinion or give his  recollection when appealed to. He speaks  iu a slow, measured way, with the rounded enunciation of the Scotchman. His  frame is bent with the weight.of 74. hard  years, but his face is jis strong tind sturdy  as ever, and 'his hair and whiskers are  but slightly gray. Jle is a most picturesque character and a splendid type of  tho sturdy men who blazed ,the trail into  Montanaand founded thatcomnion wealth.  Curious ib is indeed that every one of  the six men who discovered the richest  gulch of gold in tho world should have  "gone broke." While they profited by  their discovery at the* time, and while  each oue of them acquired a modest fortune in'the gulch, every one of them lost  it all afterward. Bill Fair-weather distributed his wealth with a lavish hand.  He tused to ride up the main street of  Virginia City aud scatter the gold dust  light and left in the street in order to see  the children and the Chinamen scramble  Order of the Day  And I want to bo in it.

Stevens, Tl|e Tailor  for it.- What he didn't throw =away he  drank up,- and he died without money  enough left to bury .himself. Others,of  the Alder gulch discoverers lost their  fortunes by gambling or dissipation. Mr.  Edgar being- the one exception.. He, too,  "went-broke,"-but he didn't gamble, and  he bore the marked peculiarity of being  one of the. very few men in Virginia  City, iu early days, who never drank.  - Ten. or twelve years ago-Mr. ��� Edgar  burned books which showed -money .owing to him-to the,amount of..$30,000,  which is a greater sum than he ever took  out of the gulch.  ''That was, my great trouble," said  Mr. -Edgar, in his slow, deliberate way,  and with his broad accent. " I never  could say 'no' to a friend when he  wanted money. Most of this. $30,000  was borrowed .money, while the rest was  owed foi' goods, when I kept .the butcher  shop."  While, ho. lost all, like the other discoverers, yet Mr. Edgar- kept on working, and - so far retrieved his fortunes  that he is now well beyond,.want. He  has a ranch. at- the. junction . of two  streams - about 10 miles from Horse  Plains, in Missoula, county.  "I have a good ranch, a good iwife  and a good living," said . ,Edgar, " and I  have nothing  to complain of."  The old prospector,-however, is not always content to remain on his ranch,  but. spends weeks and, months of. each  yetir in. tramping the. . hills, wading  streams, exposed to ,the .inclemency of  all kiudsof weather.  Edgar's full .name is, Henry . Finnis  Edgar. He was born in Dumfries, Scotland. Ho was 74 yeai's of age on  October 4 th. He came to the new.
