 _WH  THE VERY LATEST FROM LONDON  m  rf  Mafeking Reported Fallen.  London, November 4, 4:05 iu hi.���Paris  and Berlin continue to supply statements  of   British   l'Oversos,   tho   latest   being  that  Mafeking   has  fallen.      The  Paris  correspondent to the Daily Mail asserts  that since the war began the  secret service fund  has incrcused  to 1000  pounds  monthly,  and that  pro-Boer journalists  jii'c  bribed  wholesale.      None   of   tliese  l'uiuoi's ai'c yet  eonlii'ined, and little attention  i.s paid to them.    There is  veiy  little  fresh  intelligence  today, but it i.s  believed that tho  Delagoa  Bay   route, if  not already  restored,   speedily  will  be,  thus giving quicker communication with  the Cape.    The situation is still hopeful.  Tlie accounts that  continue to arrive regarding the lighting on  Farquhar's farm  only confirm its serious  nature, and  the  narrow   escape   had.      It   now  appeal's  as   if    it   were    only    the    arrival  of  the .naval contingent from  the Powerful   which   pi-evented a   worse disaster.  It seems that   when   it was   seen that  retirement       wjis       imperative,       two  Natal cavalrymen volunteered to convey  a despatch across the Boer lines to major  Ad ye, ordering  him, to   retire,  but the  risk'was  considered  too  great,  and flag  signalling  was   employed   instead.    The  distance was   too  great  and the ground  too rough for.'cavalry to go to his assistance.  According to despatches filed on,Tuesday, defensive works wei'e being constructed on the hills around Ladysmith,  and it was expected that the big naval  guns would be mounted the following  day.. The Boers were threatening to attack the town in force on Wednesday  and Thursday, and the women, children  iind'iion-eombatants were being sent by  traiii''to the soutli. Ladysmith is provisioned for two months.  At Plymouth there was ji rumor that  the Channel squadron will be ordered to  the Cape, wheie ji great naval force is to  be collected with a view of establishing  n cordon from the mouth of the Orange  river to Delagoa Bay to prevent tlie  landing of supplies for the enemy, -and  ���villi'ji view also, if necessary, of-landing  guns to assist the British forces.  Tiie Standard publishes a dispatch  from Luxemburg which says: "Until  within ii very few days Dr. Leyds has  been in telegraphic communication with  Pretoria through an indirect diplomatic  channel, by mcaib of which he has been  able to inform the Transvaal of the supposed Bi'itish plan to advance through  the Orange Free State. With a view  of anticipating this movement, the Boers  will'endeavor to capture or isolate Lady-  .smith, and then press on to Durban,  where they would be able to inteicept a  Biitish debarkation, while the main Boer  army would hastily retrace its steps to  defend the line of the Orange river."  Cai'Istown, October 31.���[Delayed].���  Sir Alfred Milner, in his cjiyacity of vice-  jidmirai of the Cape district, has issued a  proclamation establishing a naval prize  court during the continuance of the war.

Protests Against the Use of Lyddite.  London, November .3.���The belated despatch from the British camp Jit Ladysmith affords little information regjirding  Monday's fight, except the estimate of  Boer losses, which are now said to be 95  killed and 200 Avounded, mostly victims  of the artillery shells, which wrought  such great-.-havoc that it is said general  Joubert, the Boer commander-in-chief,  has written a letter to general AVhite,  the British commander, protesting  agjiinst the use of lyddite. According to  jill accounts/the presence- at Ladysmith  of the long-range naval, guns, and the  splendid shooting of the bluejackets have  materially improved the position ot the  British.

JOUBERT MAY MAKE A DASH AT JAMES HUGHES WAS ACQUITTED  KIMBERLEY TO BE HELPED FIRST  A Column Forming at De Aar.  New York, November 3.���A copyright  cable  to  the   Journal  says:     "Loudon,  November 3.���Despite  strict  censorship  concerning the movements of the troops  in Africa, it is evident that a  column  is  forming at* De-Aar' Junction for the relief  of Kimberley.    The First 'Minister Fusileers,     the     Second    Berkshires,     and  half    the Second   Yorkshire   light   cav-  ali-y are known to be there, numbering  nearly    2000    in   all.      The    Ministers  have    been    converted     into    infantry.  Tt was  originally intended  to  send   the  entire   army   corps   this   way, but   the  critical  position of the British in  Natal  necessitates diverting  reinforcements as  soon iisthey arrive Jit  the Cjipe.    The  government hopes   that general  AArhite  would be able to hold the Boer& in check  in Natal long enough for the army corps  to arrive and make a dashing invasion of  the Orange Free State, thenee into Transvaal, but Jill these plans were upset now.  Under present conditions  Natal must be  spared  some troops, and some  must  be  sent to help Kimberley.    Lord. Salisbury  i.s  anxious, too, about his  son in  Mafeking, and every effort  will  be made  to  help Ihe  two beleaguered towns jis soon  as possible.  Any Time and Cut off Ladysmith.  London,   November   3. ��� While   the  wires  to   Ladysmith   are not. cut,  the  optimism  of tlio war officials yesterday  evening in refusing to believe that Ladysmith   was  completely invested  or Col-  onso   captured   appear   to   bo   justifed.  This  morning it  was asserted  that the  railroad-was still  open, although trallic  was   being    conducted    with    greatest  caution.      What,    however,    was   only  rumor   yesterday   evening,    may,  it   is  claimed, be a reality at any moment, as  Joubert,   with   a   large    and    wonderfully      mobile      force,       is      expected      to      detach      several      thousand  and make a dash at the railroad connecting Ladysmith with Durban.    Rumors of  Jill kinds  are  springing  up  here.    It is  even  asserted that   general  White  has  been compelled to fall back on Pietermar-  itzburg, leaving the wounded behind.   It  is probable such rumors have  originated  in the recollection of the ominous silence  which preceded the evacuation of Dundee.    But, it is asserted, conditions  are  altered, and that the British  guns  now  seem more equal to  the artillery of the  Boers, thus enhancing the  difficulties  of  any. assault upon'the British lines.  A Capetown despatch reports a repulse  of the Boers by the Bi'itish yesterday.  While there is a habit here to assume  that news of the Boer victories emanating froni. the continent cannot be true,  because of the censorship, the fact is forgotten that the foreign governments are  fully privileged to send'and receive cypher messages to and from their representatives in South Africa,  Five bodies of Boers, totaling 4000 men  with field guns, are concentrated at  Bethulier bridge. They have collected  much food.

London, Novembei' 3.���Au army order  issued this eveniug' instructs the proper  authorities to mobilize their five battal-  ious of militia at tlieir respective headquarters on the various dates  after November 20th.  The Daily Mail published the following  despatch from Ladysmith, dated Wednesday morning: "M;itters today are  quiet. The Boors are apparently mounting more heavy guns to the nortli and  northeast, which are likely to give us  trouble. A Boer contingent 1.100 strong,  and clearly visible from the camp, is  streaming away to the south. The iu-  hiibitants of Ladysmith continue to leave  tne town."    London, November 4.���The Paris correspondent of the Daily Mail ��� says : "I  lejiru that the Trausvjial and Fi'ee iStale  governments before the war placed large  orders with the gun makers at Le Creu-  sot, but that all the weapons could not  be delivered owing to the suddeness with  wliich hostilities began. The guns the  Boers are actually using are 75-millimetre  quick-firing and 155-millimetre seige and  garrison guns, all mounted on light carriages and adapted iu every possible way  for use over muddy roads. They had  two month's practice Under competent  agents. If they could have had another  month's practice, ho European artillery  could liave withstood them." ��� ''    -  Mafeking Apparently Safe.  Capetown, November 1.���[Dehiyed].���  The C.tpc Times says it has reliable information tluit there have been no casualties among the British at Mafeking since  October 13th. After the hejivy bombardment general Cronje jisked the town  to surrender. Colonel Baden-Powell was  asleep when the me_s_senger_arrived,_but.  on being awakened received him hospitably aud politely replied : " I will let  you know when wc have had enough."  London, November 4.���The special correspondent of the Daily Mail sit Mafeking,  under date of October 22nd, says : " Gen-*  ei'jil Cronje's bombardment of Mafeking  was monotonous. 'The Boers-fired sixty-  two shells, but did no harm, tho ladies  even laughing at the effect. lie threatened to bring a 40-poundcr from Pretoria. Cronje s;iys lie is sorry for the  women's sake that he shelled the town,  but it was like playing the gjtme to send  dynamite among his men.

London, November 3.���The first news  of British disasters seem to come from  the representatives of foreign powers in  South Africa.   As :i matter of fact  the  Ten Thousand Will Be Sent, if Necessary.  Sydney, New South Wales, November  3,���Tremendous enthusiasm wjis displayed today on the occasion of the em-  baikation of the second detachment furnished by, the colony of New South  Wales for South Africa. The colonial  government is seriously considering  doubling the contingent. Mr. Lynnehas  communicated to the other Australian  premiers a suggestion that the colonies  should dispatch to South Africa another  body of troops, to be called the Australian contingent. He says that if necessary 1-0,000 could be sent;  London, November 3.���Please cancel  the London dispatch, filed Jit 9:15 p. m.,  announcing that communication with  Ladysmith lias been restored, as it now  appears that only belated dispatches Jire  coming through.   An Immense Paper Mill for Canada.  Bc-walo, November 3.���The Niagara  Falls correspondent of the Evening News  telegraphing today regarding the project  for an immense paper mill, to be backed  by the Edward Lord Company, Limited,  London, England, and others says:  "Among the actual steps that have ;il-  ready been taken by the syndicate is the  acquiring of 3000 square miles of timber  land in Canada, also the right to the  use of water rights representing 20,000  horse power. The plant will be erected  on the Canadian side of the river, in the_  inunecliate vicinity of Niagara Falls,  Ontario, and its construction Jind equipment will cost it is sjiid between $;1.000,000  Jind $0,000,000."  Turner Has Arrived Home.  Victoiua, Novomber 3.��� [Special to  The Tribune],���Ex-premier Turner arrived home tonight, after an extended  visit to London on private business. He  has absolutely nothing new to say on  political affairs. The school board has  acted promptly on tho news of the oiler  of tobacco millionaire Macdonald of Montreal to equip ami _upply teachers for a  manual training !?c!iool in each province.  At a special meeting today, they passed  a resolution expressing appreciation of  the offer, and hoped that Victoria would  be the site of the school for this province,  and jj me.ssa*ge to this effect was wired to  Mr. Macdonald.  Of the Charge of Murder.  Golden, November 3.���[Special to  The Tribune].���The trial of James  Hughes for the murder of Alexander McCawley was concluded Wednesday, when the jury returned a verdict of  not guilty. Mr. Justice Drake presided.  The prosecution was conducted by deputy  attorney-general Maclean, and the prisoner not being represented by counsel,  Thomas O'Brien of the local bar was assigned by the court to conduct his de-  ' defence.  The   murder   occurred   at  Tete June  '.Cache-on June'12th, and  the  accused, iu  his evidence, admitted  the shooting of  McCawley, but claimed that he had shot  him  in   self-defense.    McCawley was   a  half-breed, who  lived  at  Henry House,  between  Edmonton  and  the Tete June  Civche.    The prisoner was a farmer from  Kansas, who was on a prospecting , trip.  _He   left   Edmonton    aud    struck    out  for   some   point    on    the   Eraser   river  where    gold   discoveries   had   been   reported from.    Pie fell in with McCawley  wlio wjis trapping through  the  country  with his  wife  and  twO  children.     McCawley secured  some beaver  skins  and  while the party was camped at the Tete  Jeune Cache a quarrel arose between the  t\yo men over a pack saddle belonging to  Hughes, which McCawley was to purchase  for two of the beaver skins.     On the following   morning   while McCawley   was  packing his horses to return to the Henry  House,  Hughes shot   him with a rifle,  'claiming tnat-when he did so McCawley  was running towards liim  with  a knife  and   that  he" was  forced  to   shoot   in  self defence. 4 McCawley was in a -stoop  ing,position when shotj iiud  the ball  entered Ms head jibove  the eye tore  away  the lower jiiw and lodged in the abdomen.  For six days after the shooting McCawley  lay iu his tepee suffering fearful  agony  Avhen       ji       party       of      prospectors  from     Edmonton     found     him.        He  died    three       days     jifter    tlieir     arrival     jind    was,     buried     by     them.  Hughes remained in camp the entire time  and when McCawley died was arrested  by the members of the Edmonton  party,  who brought him and the widow aud orphans   180   miles-   into   Donald,   where  Hughes was committed for  trial  by  stipendiary magistrate Crrifliths.  Tliis would mean thai daily the large Mini  of$1000 has been squandered in the slots.  The machines have been running every  day in the week, so it follows, on this calculation, that the enormous sum of $316,-  8.10 -was annually being dissipated  tluough the machines.  Even if it be assumed that the estimate of $10 daily profits for each machine is excessive, and the estimate be  cut squarely in two, it would follow that  $���108,125 was going annually into the slot  machines.  A large pait of this cnoimous sum was  being drained out of the city. Many of  the machines have been phiced here under lease, or on commission, tho pioprie-  tor of the establishment dhiding the pio-  fits with the eastern manufacturer and  his agents. Thus a large p.ait of the  gigantic sum played into the machines  has been sent out of the city, and all of  it has been steadily diverted from the  channels of legitimate trade.  When the business men grasp the magnitude of the evil, and hundreds of men  who have been squandei ing their earnings in the slot machines turn tlieir money into the clothing, dry goods, boot  and shoe and grocery stoies of the town,  met chants will wonder why they tolerated an evil which was injuring business,  draining enormous sums away from the  city and demoralizing hundreds of young  wage-earners. The time is near when the  champions of this evil might beat up one  side of Riverside and down the other,  and not obtain the signatures of a coi-  poral's guaid of business men in support  of the slot machines.  importation of  United   States.

Alderman Hillyer, who introduced the  music hall bylaw, has decided to withdraw it .Since the bylaw was introduced he says Unit he has been subjected to  more ot less .ibuse fiom persons who oppose the opening of a music hall. lie  s.iys he does not object meeting any  diiteieucc of opinion which may Jirise  ovei the question of the opening of a  music hall, but he does object to the in-  feicnce that in promoting a music hall  he is eiidoavoiiug to establish a dive.  Aldeiniau Hill yer pi omises a warm session of the city council if he carries out  his intention of withdrawing tiie bylaw  on Monday evening.

The company is capitalised at $1,750,000 ;  its shares of $1 each command-over $8,  but the property pays IA cents per  montli.or at the rate of IS per cent, which  is equivalent sit the market price to 5 per  cent. The Payne is capitalised at $2,(500,  000, distributes $20,000 a, month, or 10  ner cent, Jind its $1 shares are less than  $l.i10. Tlie Lo I Ioi pays $1.25, or 5 per  cent, which today is only '1 per cent on  the money employed, while another big  mine, known as Republic, in the state of  Washington, but controlled by Canadians, capitalised jit $3,150,000, returns  something between 10 and 12 per cent.  It is difficult to properly account for these  discrepancies, for quotations aro subject  to market conditions or the temperament  of the investor. To cover contingencies  a mining investment ought uo doubt to  pay 10 percent, but those-wlio are fortunate enough to hold War Eagle, Payne  or Le Roi have probably little cause  to complain.

The business has not been  secured by'driving anyone to the Avail;  instead, it has been '.secured  by  opening  markets in towns as soon tis they were  large enough to warrant such -tin expense.  The lirst market was opened in Nelson,  the second  in  Ainswortli,  the  third  in  Kaslo, the fourth sit Three -Forks, aiid so  on.     As soon as Rossland'became a place  of sufficient importance to betir a name,  the firm opened a market at Rossland,  not in a shack, but in ti good substantial  building.     This policy has been kept up,  and now the Jinn  luis markets in some  twenty-odd towns  in ^British* Columbia  and   the    Northwest    Territories,', the  farthest away being atAtlin and Dawson.  Every   town in whieli the 'firm has a  market is in a position to secure com?  petition, as the firm. Has no special rates  accbi'ded it by 'transportation "companies.

At Spokane,  where choice cuts  are brought iii iu carload Jots' from   Chicago, the piice rules  from 13 to 15 cents ji pound  by  the cjir-  load.

It claims  that tlie meat  trust is   discriminating  against llosshmd in favor of Nelson and  Vancouver.   The Miner is  unnecessarily  alarmed.     There is  no "meat trust" in  British Columbia, in the sense of the accepted meaning and usage  of the  word  "trust."    A firm that began  in  a small  way in Nelson   in  3889���just ten  years  Ogo���by strict tiLleutiou to  business, lias  Down* in the stJite of Utah, where an  eight-hour law has been given a practical  trial for a number of years, .mine superintendents declare that it has  worked to  the advantage of both  mine owner and  mine worker.    A. W. McCune, a resident  of that state, having large interests there  iu common with  R. C. Chambers, wlio is  superintendent of the famous   Ontario  mine of Park City, is largely interested  iu mining ventures in" this   section of  British  Columbia.      He was  in Nelson  yesterday and is now at'Sandon.    "When  at Spokane, on the wjiy to Nelson, he is  reported tis .saying tliat he" and his asso-'  'dates    intended     to     test     the.   constitutionality      of -    the .    eight-hour  law        of        this        province;       that  they    did    uot   intend   to   .stop   until  they had a decision from  Grejit Britain's  highest  court,  the privy council.    It  is  .strange"  tliat ji  law that  works to the-  mutual  advantage   of   the mine  owner  and  the  jnine  worker 'in   Utah   .should  work to the disadvantage of  like  people  iu British Columbia.

Among  the notables present  were "Kid" McCoy,  "JJob"  Fitasiinmons  and  "Jim" Corbett,  who announced  that  they would challenge the winner.    The  betting  favored  Jeffries 100  to  70;   but  the  backers of  Sharkey, while they luid plenty of money,  apparently were holding off  for 'greater  odds.    The crowd wtis about  equally divided in  their  sympathies.    Jeffries entered the ring tit 10 o'clock and Sharkey  two-minutes   later.     When  the former  stripped it was seen tluit  his  body was  covered with red blotches. At 10:15 themen  advanced.and received'"instructions"from  referee George Siler.

Sharkey got in ti stiff jab to the neck in  the opening rush. Jeffries ducked into  two right-hand uppercuts. Both landed  heavy body blows. Neither shows ji  great amount of science.

ROYAL SEAL AND  KOOTENAY BELLE  CIGARS   NEWS BY MAIL AND TELEGRAPH  The Canadian Society* Tor Christian  Unity hold its tumiialmeeting in Toronto  yesterday. Tiie object of the union is  to di'jtw all nations into closer fellowship.  Much interest was manifested in tlie  ultimate result of the union.  Three masked burglars held up the  family of Thomas Humphrey at St.  Thomas, Ontario, last niglit, but secured  little plunder.  Colonel Crosby of the Toronto Highlanders says tliat 'J00 volunteers sire  ready in tliat city for the second Can-  adijin contingent.  Further details of tlie Yaster murder,  near Egansville, Ontario, on Tuesday  night, show the deed wjis committed by  the father, who afterwards committed  suicide by taking paris green. The heads  of the victims were hacked till nothing  wjis left but a mass of flesh tind bone.  Tiie niurdei-or hits been insane for some  time.  The match between Peter Maher and  "Kid" McCoy, scheduled to take place at  Coney Island on November 30th, -is  clinched. As ti guarantee of good faith,  Maher and McCoy have each posted  $1000 to insure thoii' appearance in the  ring. According to the articles of agreement signed by the principals, they will  fight twenty-five rounds at catch weights  for a purse of $20,000. Maher will begin  training at Chester, New York. McCoy  will receive bis .preparation for the  battle tit 'William Muldoon's farm at  White Plains, New York. '���'  At Itevelstoke judge Form of the  county court tried A. Mitchell, charged  with forging checks on the Columbia  Lumber Company of Comaplix.  It is stated on good authority that colonel Schiel, the German Ilandite, who  was wounded .and captured at Elandslaagte, is the same individual who acted  tvs Cetewayo's military adviser during  the Zulu wai- of 1879, when he displtiyed  bitter hatred toward the British. The  evidence of his ideutifictition is complete.  After the battle  of Uluandi the British  government offered a thousand guineas  reward for the capture of colonel Schiel.  who luis since been an officer in the  Ti'ansvaal state artillery. Schiel is recovering from his wounds.  Professor Robertson of Ottawa is arranging a scheme of manual training in  the schools of every province, the cost of  the same to be paid by sir W. C. Macdonald of Montreal.  John Tan ton, of tho firm of Tan ton &  Adams, Hour and feed merchants, London, Ontario, is dead as n result of injuries received by being thrown from his rig  by his horses running away.  Rev. Dr. Parsons, a noted Presbyterian  clergyman in Toronto, has decided to retire from the ministry in April next, owing to ill health. The congregation jil-  lows him $2000 yearly.  It is oflicitilly auuounced that the government at Ottawa is in communication  with the imperial authorities regarding  ji seccond contingent for South Africa.  The result is awaited with interest.  Rear admiral lord Cluirles Beresford  has accepted the post of second, in command of the British Mediterranean squadron, in succession of rear admiral sir Gerard'Henry Noel, Avhose time expired in  Januai'y. Lord Beresford already lias selected his staff.  Hugh Sutherland left Winnipeg on  Tuesday for Kootenay, where he will  spend some time in loooking into the af-  fairs of the miniug companies in which  he is said to be interested.  It is again asserted at Aldershot that  the mobiliztition of a second army corps  will begin on November 10th, aud that  the whole reserves of the transport  branch of this ai-my corps will be called  out. A composite detachment of royal  marines will be formed at Portsmouth  consisting of experienced men for inland  service in South Africa.  A Counterfeit Two-Dollar Bill.  With the successful ilotiting of the  counterfeit one-dollar bills, there now  comes a very dangerous two, wliich  within a very short time has been circulated,  tind apparently  to a  veiy large  extent.    The   bill,   however,   is   by   no  means  as good tis  the one-dollar in ap-  pearancc, and  is  much  more easily  detected.    This latest counterfeit is a Dominion of Canada note of July 2nd, 1897,  series.   The vignette is that of the prince  of Wales on the front, Avhile on the back  is a iishing scene.    The back of the note  is particularly badly printed.    The color  is a muddy brown, darker and  less  distinct than   the   original.    The  vignette  of the prince of Wales is very well done,  indeed, though the lathe  work  on   both  front and back  is defective.      It  seems  the bill  has been very largely circulated  on the line of the  Intercolonial railway,  and a number  of them  have  come into  the   hands  of   the   ticket   and   freight  agents.  In order to warn their employees  against   the  counterfeits   the   company  issued the following circular:    "Your attention is called to a dangerous  counterfeit of the latest issue of $2  Dominion of  Cantidii notes (Prince of Wales  and  fishing scene vignettes),  now in  circulation.  The   pjiper   has    a   greasy   iippearance,  and the words -Dominion  of  Canadti' on  the  face of the note do not show up as  clearly as on the genuine.    The ink has a  purplish hue, and  the ltithe  work"  and  vignette  on  the  back  of the note  are  much inferior  to those  on  the  genuine  note.    The words 'American  Bank  Note  Company, Ottawa,' on the  back  of  the  counterfeit, jue poorly engraved, and irregular in  line.    A comparison   of   the  counterfeit with genuine notes will show  clearly these points of difference."  Manchester Regiment���1 killed, (>  wounded, 1 missing.���Irish Fusileers���10  killed, 47 wounded, missing unknown.  Gloucester Regiment���30 killed, S3  wounded, 330 missing. Engineers and  Naval and Colonial .Forces���None killed,  7 wounded, none missing.  Revised total���57 killed, 227 wounded,  473 missing.  The loss mentioned does not include  the Irish Fusileers. A significant fact  indicating the hasty character of general  White's reti-eat upon Ladysmith is the  number of men captured apart from the  members of the Gloueesters and Irish  Fusileers taken prisoners.  Seattle Gains and San Francisco Loses.  San FitANCiSco, November 3.���The Call  says tluit on January 1st .San Francisco  will cctise to be the shipping and general  business center of the Pacific Coast  Steamship Company, jind that iill the  local interests of tliat- concern will be  moved to Seattle. The change is due to  the fact that the Great Northern Railway Company has secured a controlling  interest in the steamship company.

A dispatch from Kimberley, dated  October 29th, says that all the wounded  there are doing well. Small bodies of  Boers, about 400 strong, were then frequently seen. They had apparently come  from Mafeking for the purpose of either  assisting in the attack on Kimberley or  to resist the advance of "reinforcements.  The absence of water outside the place  causes the Boers to continually move  their ctuups.   Fixing the Blame.  "You ai'e charged with stealing an  umbrella," said the judge. "What have  you to say in your own defense?"  "Your honor," replied the prisoner, "my  parents are to blame for it."  "How is that?" asked the judge!  "My parents," answered the prisoner,  "taught me tliat it was Jilways well to  hvy up something for a rainy day."  Operating the Noonday-Curley Mines^  in the Slocan District.  UNION   MADE  !

The following regiments now in South  Afi'icsi are tlie vei'y flower of the Bi'itish  army. Their records when rend will  make the pulse be;it quicker tind subjects  of Great Britain grow pi-oiidcr:  Tin? aTii (Royal Irish) Laxckks.  The old 5th Dragoons, the "Royal  Irish," of the wai's of Marlborough, were  disbanded in 1797, leaving to their successors a name inferior to none for eo'ur-  ;igo and soldierly qualities. The Lancers,  jis at j>rescnt constituted, were only  raised or reoi'gani/.ed in 185S, but*, they  can claim n kinship of descent with the  .(5th [niiiskilling Drtigoous, and tho 27th  Foot, tracing back as each corps does to  its enrollment by the Protestants of  Inniskilliug for the service of William III.  Tlie warrant of incorporation dates from  1()90. The crest of the 5th is the harp  ml 'crown, -and the motto, Quis separabit.  On tlie standards are emblazoned the  tames of Blenheim, Ramillies, Ouden-  '���de, Malplaquet, Suakim, 1SS.5. At  *.in.iillies, the 5tli captured a battalion of  ���eneh greiuuliers, in recognition of  h tliey Avere permitted to wear gren-  caps, until their disbandinent.  .Vlolesworth, the colonel of the lloyal  at this bjittle, saved the life of the  ve of .Marlborough, wlio wjis attacked  ll aimo.st sltiin by severjil French  .irrassiers. At Oudenarde and Malplti-  fliir'stjtliey overthrew, by slieer valor tind  splendid swordmanship. the woll-mount-  e<ii' and equipped household troops of  fi-jmc'e. Jn 18:*i8 tlio regiment of disbanded Royal Irish Dragoons wtis reconstituted as the iibh (Royal Irish) Lancers,  antl four years later was ordered to India.  In 1881 twosquadrons formed pjirtof the  forces sent to Egypt with the result that  "Snjikim" completes the list of names up-  { on its .staiidiii'il. Lieutenant-colonel J. F.  I M. Fawcett is the present commanding  } ollicor ol! the regiment.  j Tili'J ISth HuriSARS.  Tho ib'st eni'ollmeiit was its the ISth  I Light Dnigoons, in Ireland, in 1759,  The regiment took part in the expedition  to Jumiiio and in that under sir Halph  Abereroniby in Jloliaud, and in 1807,  under its new title of Hussars, "joined the  army of sir John Moore in Portugal,  Throughout tho Peninsula the 18bh distinguished themselves even in that army  where all won fame. They fought at  Yitcoria, La Nive, Oi-thes, Toulouse. At  Writei"'ldo^liei,o_tliejr���lost-a-quarter ~of  tlieir numbei', tlie 18th with the 10th  Hussai-s, claim, says Archer, " the distinction of being the brigade which first  completed tlie final route of the French."  Then came a long peace, tind with it the  JOth Hussars ceased to exist, being  among the regiments disbanded for fin-  anciiil reasons. Tho regiment was i-c-  organized in 1858 and the only active  war service soeirby it since then was tho  Nile expedition ' of IS81, wlien a strong  detachment formed- part of the Light  Camel Regiment which did such good  wei'viee. The motto of tlie corps is " Pio  Kege, pro lege, pro Patria conamur." The  pi'esent commanding officer is lieutenant-  colonel B. D. Mollor.  Royal Dublin Fusimi-jrs.  Among the famous infantry regiments  with sir George Whito in Natal were the  Royal Dublin Fusiliers, consisting of the  I()2ud and   103rd regiments of Foot, derived from the old East India Company's  ���'���vvice.   The war record of the Fusiliers  ia, indeed, a  glorious  and eventful  one.  hey fought under Lawrence and Clivo  ���id helped to  hiy the foundation of the  ri-ish power  in  Southern India.   The  , battalion, 102nd, was raised in 1(515,  \  v English interest in India, but did not  me  ou  the  establishment until   10(58.  jii!  the early  battles of  the seventh   century they  fought   gallantly,  .   J whenever the English dominion wjis  .reatened, this  Madras  European regiment was ever to the fore and l'elied on  to defend  it.    It was  under the great  Clive that tho  102nd fought at Pondi-  eheriy,   "Phissy,    Mysore,   Triehiuopoly,  Tanjore and Condore, which "called forth  all the powers" of the great commander.  Though few  in  numbers, they attacked  .*^L .uid drove the French out of Arcot and  '     i-outed Sui-ajiih Dowlah'sarmy. at  Bujur'  :..v  In 1781 they foi'ined part of the army of  11,000 which   defeated   and   put to flight  1-I.ydei- Ali's army of (50,000 with 70 guiis.  They     fought,   at     Cuddalore,    where  amongst the French   prisoners made wits  a   young   sergeant   named   Bernadott-e,  known   in   after   years as King of   Soii-  dan.    They tilso took part  in the'assault  ami capture of the   frowning   fortress of  Nuiidy   Di'oog,    iu    commemoration    of  which  they  wear  the  Royal  Tiger, on  colors and appointments.   They  assisted  in the ciiptui'o of Amboyna,  one  of. the  islands thou belonging to the Dutch, and  wei'e present at the fall  of Termite and  Bunda and the capture of Kurnvol, to be  followed at a short intervjil by  the brilliant charge of Maheidpore and' the hard  battles of  Guspei'at, Kirkee,  Seringapa-  tam, Beni Boo Ally and Aden.  The 102nd  was next engaged with the Sikhs  in the  Pnnjaub, Jind gallantly charged -at M.00I-  tan and Goojerat.    In 1852 the regiment ,1  formed part of tiieitrmy sent against the  Burmese and were jit Ava and Pegu, and  suffered   terribly   during  the cjunpaign  from  disease.    At  the  outbreak of   the  Indian mutiny, 1857, the 102nd were the  (inly  European "troops  armed  Avith  the  new En Held  ride,  which in  hands  like  theirs soon showed its superiority... They  marched to the l'elief of Cawnpore, and  at Futtepore their brilliant charge against  teri'ible  odds  carried the Sepoy's  guns  aud won the  day.    Sir Henry flavelock  in his  report specijilly mentioned  their  charge.    The  horrible  scenes   that   met  their eyes in Cawnpore made the veteran  soldiers cry bitterly that they were too  late to save the " womeii and biibies," but  they swore ji deep oath to htive a terrible  revenge and they kept it on  every, occasion.    Their commanding  officer, colonel  Neill,  being  commandant of  Cawnpore,  issued   orders   which   lire  now   remembered ��� with JiAve by the natives.    "Whenever   a    rebel     is   caught,   he    is    to  be instantly tried, nnd unless    he can  prove ii defence he is to be sentenced to  bo hanged at once;  but  the  chiof  ringleaders I make first clean up n portion of  the pool of blood, still two inches deep in  the shed where the  fearful  murder  and  mutilation   of   women   took  place.    To  touch blood is most abhorcnt to the high  caste natives; they think that by doing  so  they doom  their  souls  to perdition.  Let them  think so."   About this time  the Madras Fusiliers acquired the sobriquet of Blue Caps from the color of their  headdress.     At  the  relief of Lncknow,  general Outram asked Htwelock, on  seeing thatthe Chur Bagh Jbridge Avas swept  by four heavy guns. "Who is to take tlie  bridge?'?     Promptly   came  the answer,  "By Blue Corps," and  take  it  they  did  Avith  a  rush  none could withstand, but  with che loss of tlieir brave aud most beloved   commander.      In   18(53  the  title  Royal   avjis conferred,  Jind  in   1871   the  regiment  came  to England for the first  time tis the 102nd.    The second battalion  of the I. oytil Dublin Fusiliers consists of  tlie   103rd,   formerly known  as the 1st  Bomb-ay Fusiliers, and Ijke tlie first  bat-  tallion has iv splendid Indian war record,  Tho motto of the Fusiliers in Spectemui1  Agendo and badges Royal Tiger aud Ela--  phant on a gremide.

The first  colone!-in-chief Avas the earl of London,  and it is worthy of note that the King's  Royal Rifle Corps and the Rifie Brigjule  are the infantry l'egiments, the chief  ofliccrs of Avhich are denominated colonel-  in-chief. Another distinctive feature of  the corps is that no fewer than six acts  of Parliament have been passed concerning it. Tlieir lirst active service avjis on  the Canadian frontier at Charleston, and  the "serious affair" at Fort William llew-  rig, Lake George. Their first distinction  Avas Avon at "Louisburg" under the brave  Wolfe in 1758. The number AVas uoav  changed to the 00th. Six companies  under Abercrombie Avere Avith the army  repulsed by Montcalm .at "Tieonderoga,"  jind they arc the only regiment uoav in  existence which Avere represented at the  seige of Fort Duquesne, Avhere George  Washington served as chief engineer.  Jn 1759 they fought at Fort Niagara,  and the 2nd and 3rd battalions  climbed the heights of "Abraham" and  fought so bi-Jively that, according to tradition, tlie gallant Wolfe himself bestowed on them their motto, "Ceier et  Audax." The Rifles' next service was in  the West Indies, Avhere they Avere en-  gjigedat "Martinique" under Albermarle,  jit the capture of Havanuah in Florida,  St. Vincent, and throughout -the American involution they were always in the  fore front of  battle.    They next fought  under  Abei-crpmby at  "St. Lueiji" and  "Guadloque,"  the   gallant de Stilaberry  being Avith  the 4th  Battalion.    In 1798,  forty-three years  after their institution,  they porformed  their  first  duty in the  Uuited Kingdom,  sluicing in the repression of tho  Irish rebellion.    The follow-  ing year they took  part  in the unsatis-  tory invasion of Holland and the expedition against "Surinam."    Then came the  long struggle against Napoleon's veterans in the Peninsular Avar, from the blood-  red battle fields of AA'hich the gallant (50th  reaped a rich  harvest of  renown.    It is  to the 5th  Battalion,  raised  iu 1797 and  bisbanded in 1817, that the King's Royal  Rifle Corps of todiiy owe their garland of  Peninsular distinctions.    The 5th Battalion aa'jis drawn from the foreign corps of  Hornfosch and FloAvenstein.    They opened  the affair at "Ohidos,"   which preceded  the bjittle of "Rolcia," their eager pursuit  of the enemy on that  occasion  exposing  them  to  some --danger." At  "Vinreua"  they fought side by side*-with  the 95th,  now the Rifle Brigade.   Sir Arthur Wol-  seley at this time directed general officers  to pay particular attention to  the companies of the  5th  Battalion, 00th  Rifles  serving under them ; they will find them  to be the most  useful, .active and  brave  troops in the field."    They we're specially  thjinked for tlieir conduct at the passage  of the "Dour.)," though the name, is  not  on their list of honors.    They fought at  Salmondo, and Avith the Guards  Brigade  led; the attack.   At "Tenalera" they AA'ere  "most-conspicuous in steadiness and  gallantly," aud Jit "Busaco" avou the approval of the firey Picton.    They led the assaults of the strong fortress  of "Ciudad  Rodrigo,"  and  "Bada,ioz;,"  and  the  (ith  Battalion shared in the 'memorable charge  Avhich Avon "Salamanca" for  Wellington  from the French geueral Marmont. HeaA'y  was  their  loss  and-'heavy .again at Vic-,  toi. a.    They  Avere, at "Adour" and  the  battles of the "Pyreiiesss."    They fought  at.'r "Vivelle," ���- "Nive"   and   others,   and  shared in the conflicts of "Toulouse"'and,  "Bayonne."    In 1826 the  60th a. ere  re-  presented iu the expedition to Portugal,  and How followed  an��� uneventful ��� career  untiL 1840, when the; 1st Battalion (in  the chtvi'ge   at   Gleneoe) AA'ere   engaged  under     lord    Gough    and     sir     Colin  Campbell, in the Punjaub Avai*, and defeated   the   Sikhs   at   " Moultan"   and  (' Goojerat."   Their next service avjis the  Kaffir war at the Cape, Avhere they Avere  again successful  against the blacks and  Boers.    They  Avere  not at  the  Crimea,  but   luokly   Avere   in   India   when    the  mutiny broke   out,   tind  fired  the  first  shots of the British army on  the  rebel  Sepoys  at "Merrut" and  "Delhi."-  At  the storming   of   the hitter   city   they  bravely led the assault Jind,wore always  to "'the   fore   throughout  the  long  and  terrible campaign.     They took'pat t in  the China Avar of I860 and at the capture  of the " Tiiku  Forts" sir  Redvers Buller  led a company.     The first and fourth  battalions served iu Caruida in the sixties  and   Avere    popular   in    Montreal    and  Quebec, and  wherever quartered.   The  4th returned to England in I860 twid  the  1st in  Novembei",   1871,  consigning  the  keeping   of   the   Quebec  citadel to  the  soldiers of the Dominion  of  Canada, 111  yejirs Jifter its capture in AA'hich the (50th  had ti share.   The 1st Avere the only imperial troops in the Red River expedition  of 1870 under sir Garnet Wolseley.   Then  came  the  Afghan   AA'tir of  1878-1879, in  Avhich the  2nd battalion  did such  good  AA'ork  at Guzmi,  aud  the march  under  Roberts from "Cabul" to "Caudahar."  The "3rd battalion Avere also engaged at  the same time Avith the Zulus and  Ging-  hiloro and "UJundi."

The Leicestershire Regiment, consisting of the old 17th-foot "Bengal Tigers,"  dates from the year Avhich saAvthe line of  the Htuarts displayed in favor of William  of Oi'iuige. The first Jictive service AA'as  in the Netherlands in J (594, and the following ye.ar t/hey greatly distinguished  them.selves at the siege of Hanover, Fol-  loAving, "with drums beating and colors  flying," the storming party of grenadiers.  On the occasion of tlie peace, they returned to England, but tAA'o yejirs hiter  were JigJiin in action jit Venloo, Rui*e-  monde, Hay, and other operations on the  continent. A few years later, under lord  GalijiAA'jiy, they formed part of the army  supporting the claims of Charles of  Austria to the throne of Spain, Jind  fought in various places, Badajos, Cindad,  Rodriego and others, Avhich a century  later shav British troops jigaiii gaining  honor and victory in contention Avi.th.-the  soldiers of Frjmce. In 1715 the rising in  Scotland called them again to action, and  they gained great distinction at Sheriff-  uiiur. After a spell of ten years' home  service, they Avere sent to Minorca, and  iu 1727 several companies assisted in the  defence of Gibraltar. In 1758 they served  ���under the great Wolfe -at the capture  of Louisbui'g, but Avere not present  at the Heights of Abraham, doing good  service at other points under Lord Amherst. After the conquest of Canada  tliey wei'e  ordered  to  the West Indies,  and were present at the capture of Martinique and the Moiro Fort, of HaA'alia.  With the rest of the Bi'itish troops, they  suffered-terribly from the climate and  disease. After a few j'ears of peaceful  duties, the Avar of independence of the  United States broke out, and the 17th  AA'ere once..more called on for active  sei'A'ice. They fought at Long Island  "with great A.ilor," and nt "Trenton," by  a "brilliant bayonet charge," which Avon  the admiration of Washington and the  continental troops, they broke through  the foe and continued their march to  Maidenhead and "Germantoavu," and  "Stony Point." In the'action at Guilford Court House, they charged through  4000 American troops, and after ji gtil-  lant resistance became prisoners of Avar  at YorktoAvn. They burned their colors  before surrendering. In 17S6 they -returned to England, and ten years later  fought at St. Domingo.  They AA'ere next in the Helder campaign, and engaged at "Bergen."- After  a rest of five'yojirs they Avere despatched  to the East Indies* and "Chumar,"  "Comona" and "Gonowie," forgotton  battles uoav, witnessed their proAvess.  In 18S2 they returned to -England, after  nineteen years of hard fighting iu India,  and took part iii the'���''Afghan AVJir.
