 t  SITUATION IN SOUTH AFRICA IS  fhj Again a Trifle Alarming.  IJI London*,  November  2.'.���5 a.   m.���Al  ii     though it is evident that the situation in  Natal is again becoming sufficiently alarming, nothing can  be officially ascertained  to either allay public anxiety or the curiosity felt regarding the disposition of the  reinforcements  recently landed  at Dur**  ban.    The war office dispatches are confined to a mere recital  of the casualties  at Mooi river and confirmations of the reports of skirmishes there.    They give no  details as to how  the  engagements happened.    The  special   correspondents  are  only permitted to  describe  major  liar-  ton's  camp   at   Mooi   river   vaguely  as  "large" or "ample."    One correspondent  says that 7000 Boers  are within 25 miles  of Howick  Palls,   near Pietermarit/.burg,  aud   the  inhabitants are   fleeing  to the  capital.    Evidently a  considerable force  of the enemy is now within SO or 40 miles  of Piefcermaritzburg, but  it  is officially  announced from   tliere   that  uo anxiety  prevails.    The garrison numbers a thousand men, with six guns.  General Joubert's plan, apparently, is a  daring attempt to defeat the British relieving column from Durban in detail,  .while attempting the reduction of Lady-  tjj'smitl.. A serious attack ou Mooi River  ''camp is now hourly expected, with the  object of destroying the bridge at Weston. .Should this be accomplished, the  Boers would be free to turn their attention again to Estcourt, while if it failed  the enemy would retire again on Weene-  nen, and join the investing forces around  Ladysmith.  The Boer report that general Hild yard's  men who were sent to White for assistance were captured caused some uneasiness but it is argued that if Hildyard  had not been strong enough to hold but,  he would some time time ago have been  ordered to retire on Pieterniaritzburg.  Therefore, small credence is given to the  story. '*���*���"���  Durhan, November .22.���About 3000  Free State Boers, with guns, .ire marching from the west, by way of Fort Nottingham.  ��� London, November 23. ���The Daily  Mail says this morning : " We are able to  confirm the report that orders have been  issueVl to mobolize a sixth division  at Aldershot, for service in Soutli  Africa, or. wherever it may be wanted."

Pretoria, November 21.���The following dispatch has been received from the  Boer headquarters near Ladysmith:  "The field corps of the Pretoria commando reported that British gun carriages and some horsemen had been  heard moving last night in Ladysmith.  The Boer outposts observed the British  endeavoring to sortie towards Lombard's  kop and Bulwam hill, where the Maxims'  opened fire.

The burghers  captured them and disarmed them, but  finally allowed them to proceed. It is  reported that the Natal police have captured a number of Transvaal dispatch  riders."  The latest report from general Joubert  says: " 1 am cutting off the retreat of  the Estcourt troops to Pietermaritzburg  and driving them back on the Tugela  river."  Jt is Jilso reported that the Boer commander with the forces near Ladysmith  has comprehensively surveyed the different points from whieh the fall of Ladysmith can be insured.  Reports from Boer Sources.  Pretoria, November 21.���General Syn-  iiian, who is out.side Mafeking, reports  heavy fighting Monday afternoon. The  British fired on the French cannon and  Boer forts. The Boers replied, bombard-  the British forts with good effect. The  lo.ss of the British is unknown. One Boer  wjis wounded. Newspaper reports from  Cape Colony say a general rising of Dutch  farmers is imminent in Natal, and the  colonial Boera in the districts which have  been proclaimed republican have already  joined the Boer forces.  Pretoria, November 21.���The official  returns of the Transvaal casualties since  the outbreak of the war show 90 men  have been killed and 200 wounded, of  whom a number have recovered and re-  tiu'iied to the front.  Consul Macrum Wants to Go Home.  Washington, November 22.���United  States consul Macrum at Pretoria has  asked the state department for leave of  absence, with permission to take advantage of it Jit once. He pleads domestic reasons for leaving his post, aud  oifer.s to place in the consulate jis the  representative of the United States vice-  consul Attlebury, who is now on the  ground. The department, however, refused to accede to the request, and Mr.  Macrum will stay where he is, unless he  sees fit to quit his position without permission. It is learned that, so far, Macrum has not been prohibited by the Boer  government from caring for the welfare  of the British subjects now in the Transvaal and the Free State, or, at least, he  has not yet notified the state department  to the contrary. There had been some  friction encountered in the effort of the  British government to secure permission  for the United* States consul to disburse  funds for the benefit of the British  soldiers held as .prisoners of war. -..���*.'  THE BOER ATTACKON MOOI RIVER  -       Was It A Failure ? .   "  Durban, November 22���10 p. in.���To-^  day's  engagement at Mooi. river found  the British almost entirely on  the defensive.    A correspondent of the Natal Ad-*  vertiser says the second shell  fell within  a few yards of a detachment of British  infantry ;  that the shells did  little or no  damage, and that   firing   continued  for  about half an hour at intervals  of from  three to four minutes.   According to this  account, the'British troops prepared with  the utmost 'promptitude,'and ��� advanced  under cover wherever.possible.    The British artillery was in position  behind the  hotel where genenil Barton and  his staff  were     being     accommodated.        Major  Thornyeroft's mounted  infantry moved  to cover on a   ridge on the enemy's left  flanks   The Devonshire regiment and the  Welsh Fusileers occupied  the trenches.  There was but little artillery fire,  the*  correspondent   says,   but    the    .enemy  pos.sessed at least one  howitzer, with a  range of  five  miles, besides  several six-  pounders.

London, Novembei- 23.���The Daily  News lias the following from Pieteimar-  itzburg, under date of Wednesday;  " Your correspondent managed to escape  from the Mooi River district yesterday  before the arrival of the large number of  Boers, who are looting farms in all directions. The Natal Boers, encouraged by  the success of the Transvaalers, join in  the looting.

Yaiir, November 22.���The preliminary  hearing of Frank Bribton, a prominent  member of the Ymir Miners' Union, upon  a charge.of assault and'battery, preferred  by a:man named JamesMcNamara, resulted in the acquittal of Britton. Public  feeling was very much worked up over  the case, the general opinion being that  it was an organized attempt on the part  of those .'interested to bring the miners'  union; in to disrepute as a law-abiding organization. This appears to have some  foundation, and the men who worked up  tlie Britton assault etise. James McNa-  maraand PhilipAllan���are now beingheld  to answer to the charge of carrying,  weapons dangerous to the  public peace.  So far as the cases have developed; it  appears that both McNamara -*and Allan  are non-union men employed at the Ymir  mine."; When they came down from the  . mine?*" .McNamara secured a revolver  which he had cached in the town "and  purchased another belonging to Britton  at the Cosmopolitan hotel. When Britton came into the hotel, the bartender  informed him tluit he had made ji sale of  the revolver, and "pointed out the purchaser, saying that he professed to know  Britton and his people in the east. Britton afterwards approached the purchaser  of the.revolver, and tusked him whether'  he was acquainted with his people in the  f-pjici-      "IVf.* V��_.m��*-��pp.._    -**11  -         ���" ������'J     "��"��*���  very abusive, and after some words made  a, move as if to draw ji revolver. Britton  then closed in upon his mankind with his  fist ready to strike cautioned him not to  draw his revolver. McNamara did uot  draw, the revolve!', and on constable Forrester coming into the bar, he wjis hustled out the back way. This was the  technical assault of which Britton stood  charged, but upon whieh he was acquitted by justices of the peace Ross and  Buckworth.  McNamara and Allan are not likely to  escjipe so easily. No less than seven witnesses have so fjir testified to having s'ecn  them in different pjirts of the town flourishing revolvers. The names of the men  who liave so testified are: David Keefe,  Thomas McQueen, Pat Daly, J. Ma.ster-.on,  Frank Britton, Fred Burn and Phil White.  It wjis also brought out in evidence that  McNamara and���Allan- had���said-thafc-the  lrmir company wjis backing them up with  money to the extent of $3000 in the event  of any trouble they might get into in  ymir. Be this jis it may.it is worth noting that superintendent Barnhart of the  Ymir mine Jind Mr. Twombley, who has  clmrge or the company's mill, were both  present at the preliminary hearing of the  men. The preliminary hearing of McNji-  marji wjis not finished today and an adjournment wjis taken till Saturday morning, when the case against Allan will also  probably be heard. S. S. Taylor of Nelson is looking after the interests of the  local union in the case-), aud W. A. Macdonald is conducting the defence^  A Long-Standing Case Settled.  Washington, November 20.- -The ten-  year-old controversy between Augustin  Diily and his executors on the ono side,  jmd William A. Brady on the other side,  involving the copyrighting of the railroad scene in the play of " Under the  Gaslights," was decided finally today by  the United States supreme court, in an  opinion handed down by Mr. justice  Peokham. Daly, jis the author of the  play, charged an infringement of the  copyright of this, one scene iu the play of  "After Dark/' written by Dion Bouci-  eault and produced by Brady. The  courts below found the cluirge of infringement to be sustained, antl awarded  damages amounting to $.'800. This finding was affirmed by today's opinion.  Just and Timely Decision.  Toronto Telegram. - . -  The proceedings to unseat the Conservative member who was elected for  Ijondon in 189(5 exposed ji wide area of  corruption. The corruption wjis undeniable, but the Law was so technical in  its spirit and letter that agency could  not be proven. The failure of the,London"'  case revealed new possibilities.   Corruption and concealment became the watchwords of practical politicians.    The partisan .scientists imagined that they could  buy up a constituency and still escape the  penalty   of   their    crime   if   they   left  no proof of agency.    The court of appeal  has wisely harmonized the  legal  usage  Avith the higher law of common sen.seand  public morals  by   deciding  that  where  bribers--  is  proved,  the election  can  be  voided whether agency is proved or not.  It is true  that  the  Conservative party  suffers by the decision in East Elgin; but  the  country gains by a  decision  whieli  will render it impossible for  a party  to  buy  a constituency,  as North  Waterloo  was'bought, and then attempt to escape  the penalty  by the  miserable technical  quibble that agency has not been proven.  The Greenwood Smelter.  Greenwood, November 22.���Work continues to progress on the new smelter.  The retaining .wall along the east side  has been completed, and excavation  for the large flume up the hill tothe  stack has been commenced. Work is  progressing generally on the site, for  various purposes. Bunk houses have  been erected and are now in course of  completion.

The postoffice authorities seem determined   to  keep  the   people  kicking  for  something'that th**y should be given with  the minimum of faction, that is, facilities  for the prompt transmission of mail matter.    Probably no other section of Canada  has been so cursed Avith blundering, pigheaded  postal   officials   jis  southeastern  British Columbia.    Although Nelson contributes oyer $300,000 a year to the Dominion  government   iu  customs,  inland  revenue, and postoffice receipts, its business men are treated  as  if they lived at  an  unimportant   ctoosioads   town  in  a  backwoods Ontario township.  As an instance of the blundering incompetency of the post-office officials in  British Columbia, the following cases of  unjust discrimination are gi.-en:  Within the last  ten  day*, the official  who litis charge  of  the railway mails in  British  Columbia,  has   oidered   that all  mjiils.originating at  Nelson for points in  Boundary'  distiict   must   be   sent over  the Nelson & Fort  Sheppaid railAA'ay to  Rossland, and  be  forwarded  from that  town  to  their   destination.    Yet  trains  leave Nelson and Rossland about the same  time eA*-ery morning (Sundayb excepted)  for West  Robson, and  from that point  one train is run to Cascade, Grand Forks,  Eholt,   and   Greemvood.    The   Rossland  business man's  mail   goes  direct, and is  delivered   tit   Greenwood   Avithin   eight  hours;   the   Nelson   man'-,   is   delivered  within thirty-two hour*,.    The postoffice  department refuses to  pay for hauling a  Sunday mail out of Nelson by way of the  Nelson ���&��� Fort Sheppard railway, and the  mail that should  leave  here for .Spokane  and points south  on Sunday morning is  sent to Rossland on Saturday afternoon,  and forwarded from Rossland on Sunday  forenoon.    Mail matter addressed at Nelson  for  Halcyon  Hot Springs,  and  for  points iti Trout  Lake district, are sent to  Revelstoke, and  returned  from  there to  their  destination.    Mail   for  Lardo, Argenta and Duncan City is sent to Kaslo,  tind  there  held   and   forwarded   once a  Aveek, yet boats  run  direct from Nelson  to Lardo and Argenta four or fiAre times  a week.

Hi ther the clerks iu the Toronto po-it-  ofiice are remarkably industrious and capable men, or those in tlie Montreal oil ico  have a remarkably soft time. In the Toronto office the number of superintendents and sorters is 120; in Montreal the  number of superintendents and sorters is  117. There ilire 12 more men engaged iu  the Toronto ollice than iu the Montreal  office, Avhile the business done in the  former is almost double that at the latter. In the eastern city only 12,501,.I'i 1  piece*-, of mail matter are handled, antl in  the Toronto office 21,-108,280* are disposed  of. While, therefore, at this end, nine  million letters and papers are sorted in  excess of the number passing through  Montreal, only nine additional men are  provided to do the work. It Avould require an expert in postal matters to determine how many men should handle ti  million pieces of mail matter, but a person with ordinary common sen.-,e can easily .see that either the men in the Toronto  oifiee are worked like slaves or those at  Montreal loaf about half their time.

Sign of the RED HAT, Baker St., Nelson       (J *      JF ��� VV   JCiXXV  able from time to time out of  this  fuud.  With respect to all notes paid  out  of  it  by the minister, he has the same right as  any other holder of the notes of the bank,  Avhich Avith the interest accrued thereon are  a first charge upon the assets of the bank.  The outstanding circulation  of   the suspended Banque Ville Marie at the time of  the suspension  avjis  $180,000,  Avhile  the  contribution of the bank to  the redemption fund aa'iis only $1S,000, yet the Avhole  of the note obligation ($480,000) has been  paid.    But   the  difference betAA'een  the  $18,000 and $480,000 is  a  first  claim  on  the assets of the bank under  the provisions of  the  Bank Act, and it AA'ould be  unfair to divert the  assets to  depositors  first, and to the note holders  second, for  by so doing confidence  would  be  lost in  the notes of   Canadian   banks,   that are  now as good as gold   in  any  commercial  city in the Avorld.  Thk two papers in Nelson that have  been trying, like setting hens, to.sit on  the mine owners' nest are not at all  pleased at the pi'ospect of an early settlement of the trouble betAveen the Slocan  mine OAvners and the miners. The subsidy actually paid the one will cease, and  the subsidy that the other aviis longing  for will never materialize.

SEMI-ANNUAL STATEMENT   OF   THE   BANK   OF   MONTREAL  The statement of this  institution  for  the half year ending Oetober 31st has been  issued,  and notwithstanding the reduced  rates of interest for money, which  have  prevailed of late years, making it a difficult task to obtain  the same  returns  as  formerly, the bank lias earned its standard rate of dividend five per cent for the  six  months, and   has   been  enabled   to  make an  addition  to the already  large  amount at the  credit  of profit and   loss.  The net profits for the six months   were  .$(.58,101,  and  exceeding    those  for tho  corresponding period of last year by .$29,-  02;*��.    After payment of a dividend of five  per cent for the  period  there  remained  $".S,_(U, which with the balance of profit  and loss account on the "JOth of April last  brought   up  the  balance  at the end   of  Oetober last to the large  sum of  $1,100,-  954.  This is an increase of $179,020.   The  balance of profit and loss carried forward  for the new half year is equal to fltif per  cent  of the  total  dividend  at  the rate  of ten per cent for the current year.  The  next half yearly dividend is   not only  in  hand,   but  there  is in addition   thereto  the  sum of $500,95'!, of  unappropriated  profits.    The total liabilities of the  bank  to  the  'public   are   $0*.,0:M,008,  an   in  crease of $13,536,285.'and the total assets  are $83,397,384, an  increase of $13,715,-  791.        The   circulation   of   the   bank's  notes which is $7,153,857 has  an increase  of $8.'i8,040, aud deposits amount to $56,-  479,963, showing an increase  of $12,718,-  135.    Of these  $12,028,385  do  not beat-  interest,   and   $43,851,578   are    interest  bearing, the increase in the former being  $451,622, and that in the latter $12,200,-  513.    Current loans have an expansion of  $7,313,177, the total of these  being  $40,-  198,959.    A special feature  is  the small  amount   of   overdue   debts   $34,834,   in  which there is a reduction of $17,708     A  strong  feature of   the statement is the  large  amount  of assets   which  are  immediately available, the amount standing  at $30,524,138.    In this too there is an increase from last year, the amount of  the  increase "being  $0,433,891.       It  will   be  noticed that  the Bank  of Montreal  has  no  call   loans.    This  half yearly statement i.s one which should  be Very  satisfactory to the .shareholders  inasmuch as  the regular dividend of five  per  cent  i.s  more than earned, thus doing away with  the necessity of impinging upon the  reserve fund, which still stands at $0,000,-  000.    The  following is the statement:  dred and sixty dollars (?3_0.00) for the payment of interest and tha sum of one hundred'and forty-t wo dollars and  sixty-Aye cents for the payment of the debt due under  the said Debentures by a rate sufficient therefor on all  the rateable land in the said Municipality.  ��� 7. It shall be lawful for the said Municipal Council lo  re-purchase any of the said Debentures upon such terms  us limy be agreed upon with the legal holder or holders  thereof, or any part, thereof, cither at the time of sale or  any subsequent time or times, and all Debentures so repurchased shall forthwith be cancelled and destroyed,  and no re-issue of Debentures so repurchased .shall be  made in consequence of such re-purchase.  8.

Genelle to collect an account of $-100 from A. G. Fox. and the  other is a Ymir case, in ' which R. C. Buchanan is suing the Ymir Gold Mining  Company for an alleged balance of wages  due. Tho amount in dispute is $13.50,  and the collection of it, or the knowledge  that it cannot be collected, will cost at  least $fi().    .1. R. I'\ Rowley i.s acting as administrator of the estate of the late Walter S.  Ash pi tei. The estate is sworn as being  under $'5000.  John A. Turner, adiuinisti.itior of tho  estate of the late Pat Keogh, who was  frozen to death on the Yellowstone trail  some distance from Salnio, has passed the  accounts of the estate showing that after  all claims have been paid tliere remains  $58.).o:"i. As Keogh left no heirs, the  amount will be paid into the provincial  treasury.  Mayor Neelands signed an order yesterday for the admission into the general  hospital of A. J. Preston, a miner from  the Silver King. Preston came down  from tho mine about a mouth ago with  $258. He got rid of his money speedily,  and by dissapation shattered his health  so that his admission into the hospital  became necessary.  If. R. Cameron, assignee for the Nelson  ���Sawmill Company, says that the second  creditor's dividend will be distributed  about Christmas. He is of the opinion  that the dividend will.be fully 12 per  cent.  An arrangement has been arrived at  between the city and the Provincial government with respect to the employment  of provincial prisoners in the breaking of  stone for the city streets. The method  of payment for the rock crushed by the  prisoners will probably be by measurement.  Chief of police Jarvis has secured an  electrical novelty in the form of an  electric flash. It is in the form of a  baton, and is so contrived that by pressing a button it will Hash a light like a  bullseye lantern.  The Owen Smily concert, which will  be given on Monday evening next under  the auspices of the Ladies' Hospital Aid,  promises to be a very enjoyable affair.  The members of the Smily company  have received very complimentary press  notices wherever they have appeared in  the province.  BUSINESS   MENTION.  Oflice boy wanted who can  typewrite.

BY MAIL AND TELEGRAPH  Lord Salisbury is suffering from an attack of influenza and is unable to attend  to business.  Garret A. Hobart, vice-president of the  United States, died at his home in Paterson, New Jersey, at .8:.3() o'clock Tuesday  morning.  The British union jack at the British  embassy, Washington, wtis at half-mast  yesterday as a mark of respect for tlie  late vice-president. Lord Pauncefote  and the members'of his staff left their  cards at the White House as n further  evidence of respect. The half-masting of  the embassy Hag attracted considerable  attention, tind was regarded as an unusual mark of consideration to the American people.  Lady Salisbury, wife of the premier,  who suffered a second stroke of paralysis  in July last, died on Monday. She was  the daughter of the late Hon. sir Edward  Hall Alderson, baron of the court of exchequer, and was married to the marquis  of .Salisbury in liS:*>7.  HOTEL ARRIVALS.  At thk Hu.MK.���C. .V.
