 V  X  THE SITUATION IN SOUTH AFRICA  Wired From London This Morning.  London, November 24���5 p. iu.���Before  anxiety as to the situation  in Natal has  been   relieved, there   comes   news   of   a  great battle at Belmont.      This has happened sooner than was  expected.      Only  the official account is yet to hand, but so  far as can be  gathered, the  lighting appeal's to have been almost a repetition of  the battle of .(Hand's Laagte.  A despatch  of the previous  day  estimated  that the  Boers in that vicinity numbered 2000, and  that they   had   five   guns, and   judging  from the absence of a statement  to  the  contrary in tlie official despatch, it i.s believed   that  the   British   were   slightly  supei ioi in numbers to the enemy.     The  Bot-i.- Had eliosen   a  position   with their  customary   skill   and  were strongly entrenched.      The British were obliged  to  carry three ridges in succession.    .Apparently the Guards   bore   the brunt in carrying tiie last ridge by a bayonet charge,  after its defenders had been shaken with  sharpnel.     Nothing is said as to whether  the positions thus gained   were held, and  the destruction of ammunition  seems to  indicate that the contrary was  the case.  While geneial Methuen can be congratulated upon a brilliant victory, it  is  with  a cost of a heavy loss of olticeis and men.  Later   details   regarding  the  Arundel  recounaisance -.ays that the Boers  there  were engaged in destroying the railway.  One account of the affair says that after  the retirement, an ambulance train with  doctors was sent out from Naauwport. If  this were so, the British  casualties must  have exceeded three.  The situation in Natal remains obscure.  Fighting is reported at both Estcourt  and Ladysmith. It was at first reported  that heavy firing had been heard in the  direction of Willow Grange, leading to a  belief that general Hildyard had made a  .soitie. Later dispatches announce that  White sortied from Ladysmith and inflicted a demoralizing defeat upon the  Boers. It would be premature to give  full credence to cither report. What is  quite certain is that Ladysmith, Estcourt  and Mooi River are all isolated, .and the  Boers seem able, after detaching enough  to hold three British forces, aggregating  17.000, to push on towards Pietermarit/.burg with some 7000 men. A disquieting  featuie of the whole campaign is the  fact that all of the advancing British  generals report meeting the Boers in  foi ce.  In view of the success of general .lou-  bfit m partially paralyzing' the relief  columns, the question is being asked  what would have happened had he at the  outset of the war. instead of sitting down  before Ladysmith, pushed on to Pieter-  marit/.burg.  General Gat acre's report that the  Dutch are rising causes public anxiety, as  it tends to confirm rumors that have long  been current.  A special dispatch from Durban announces that more big naval guns were  landed "Wednesday and hurried lo the  front.  Late last evening it was asserted at  Atdershot that the sixth division, now in  process of mobilization, would be required  for-aetive service. Some of the yeomanry  regiments have been warned for inobiii-  '/atiou, owing to the scarcity of cavalry  iu Africa. It i.s also reported that another  brigade of horse artillery will be mobilized.  *-���. ��� *?>v;r!r-*r-r^^-s.*i^_i*��- =-���*_  * *'p '/***.,.����� -ie_���7^M___,___7J_MT  r?3  FRTDAY MORNTNG, NOVEMBER 24,  18U9.

The main  treaty is  trilateral in character,  between   the   United  States, Great  Britain and Germany, by which the territorial arrangement of the islands is fixed.  It  is  quite  brief, comprising  only four  or five articles, the essential features being  that   Great   Britain   and   Germany   renounce all  claims and   interests in the  island   of   Tuieula    and    the    outlying  islands, which  go  to the United  States,  and this government and  Great  Britain  renounce any interests in Upola and Sa-  vila, which go to Germany.    The present  indication   is   that  the   treaty   will  be  signed in AVashington, in  which case secretary Hay, ambassadors Pauncefote and  Von Ilolleben will be the  signatory  parties, although it i.s still  possible that the  execution  of  the  document  may   occur  in     Loudon.       The    second    treaty   is  between   Great    Britain   and   Germany  and is longer than the first, covering the  rights and interests  in   the   Tonga and  Solomon   islands   and  other settlements  brought about by the Samoan  partition.  The United   States   does   not   sign this  treaty, and is only indirectly concerned.  It is understood that this collateral treaty  has already been executed  in Berlin, and  that the signing of  the  trilateral treaty  will bring to a close the  negotiations for  the division of the islands.  w  Hi  Hi  Of  ib  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  UV  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  \  ^trC:*********:*********:***:**** frtfrttf *(.***..

London, November 23.���The secretary  of war has received the following dispatch through general Forester Walker  from general Methuen, dated Belmont,  November 23 : " Attacked the' enemy at  daybreak this morning. He was in strong  position. Three ridges were carried in  succession, the last beiiig prepared by  shrapnel.

BRITISH tOSSES AT KIMBERLEY  Infinitely Small and the Boers Smaller.  London, November 23.���The war office  this evening issued a dispatch from  Cape Town, which is a brief official diary  of events at Kimberley from November  13th to 17th. It shows tliat no serious  engagement occurred between these  dates; that the British losses have been  infinitely small, and that the Boers*  were probably very small. The final  entry indicates that the Boers, anticipating the advance of "the relief column  under general Metheun, have taken up  defensive positions to the south of the  town.    The dispatches follow:  Kl.ii_kki.I3y, November 12.���The Boers  fired 400 shells yesterday. Our expenditure up to date is about 200 shells.  November 18.���There was a desultory  bombardment today, the Boers' practice  being indifferent.  November 11.���The bombardment continued today.  November 10.���At daybreak our  mounted troops made a sortie. "The  morning was misty and our scouts came  suddenly upon the Boers, who fired  wildly. An engagement ensued. We  had two men Wounded.  November 17.���There was another sortie at 2 o'clock yesterday from Bulpri-  pein, which drove the enemy to the edge  of Alexander's fontein. Our only casualty was. a captain wounded, it is reported that the Boers are concentrating south  of Kimberley, and now occupy laagers at  Stagsteinfontein station and Scholsnek.  Their camp is practically surrounded by  coppice and the country is suitable for'  their tactics,   Prisoners Well Cared For.  Chicago, November 23.���A Cape Town  dispatch to the Record says: "J. J. G.

He found they, also, are well  treated tind in excellent health, but  eagerly looking forward to exchange and  the chance of another go at the  British.  Attempts Have Been Unsuccessful.  Loniion, November 23.���An official dispatch from sir Alfred Milner to Air.  Chamberlain reports that thus far the  efforts of the Boers to provoke au uprising among the Basutos, or to start ci vil  war, have been unsuccessful against the  government of Cape Colony. The Boer.s informed chief Jonathan that if he would  join them he would be defended. If he  remained neutral they told him he would  not be molested, but they declared that  he must expel the British magistrate and  allow his fellow-tribesmen to pass freely  into the Orange Free State, whose government iu return would guarantee  Basutoland to the Basutos in perpetuity.  Depositors Fig-ting Bill Holders.  Montreal, -November 23.*���Following  the action oi depositors in other parts of  the province, petitions are being circulated among* the depositors of the defunct  Ville Marie Bank in the outskirts of this  city praying that the government redeem  deposits now locked up in that unfortunate institution in preference to holding  the funds to redeem the bank's bills.  Passed a Comfortable Day.  London, November 23.���The following  bulletin was issued at Hatfield House this  evening: "Lord .Salisbury is suffering  from influenza, but his temperature has  'fallen."and.he has passed a .comfortable  THREE BRITISH GENERALS WILL  Make Records for Themselves.  , London, November 23.���Three British  generals will vie with each other in the  next ten days in trying to win glory  against the Boers. While they are cooperating in a movement which has tactical uuity in its progress, tlieir commands as far as immediate" objectives  are concerned, are independent of each  -other. As a result of this, rivalry among  them is inevitable, and the military clubs  ".here will follow the three campaigns with  'the* keenest interest. The three commanders are major-general Charles F.  Clery in Natal, who will advance to relieve Ladysmith; major-general Paul S.  - Methuen, commanding the flying column  which has already started to relieve Kirn--  berley.and major-general William F. Gatacre, commanding the British forces at  Queenstown, iu central .Cape colony, who  will push forward to the Orange Free  State borders, with the object of diverting the Boer.s from the two.British move-  mt-sntirto the east and west.   -  All three generals have served with  distinction in India, L Egypt or South  Africa, Clery is an authority on tactics. Methuen litis commanded the Bechuanaland Horse, and knows as much as  the Boers about South African fighting.  Gatacre is an all-round fighter, who has  seen long service iu India and fought  with Kitchener in Egypt. The two relief expeditions will hold public interest  from the start. - They are of two widely  different characters. Clery in Natal  is preparing to lead an army of horse,  foot and dragoons, with heavy guns, up  through tortuous passes, where his advance will be stubbornly contested. His  ability will be tested to the utmost, and  his success will accrue to him gradually,  culminating in the wresting of Ladysmith from the Boers. Methuen's advance to relieve Kimberley will be over  the veldt. Jle has 110 heavy artillery,  and his operations will consist in dashes  to sweep the Boers before him to field  fighting, a kind of warfare they tire said  "tdll'slike. His troops are in lightest  order and will advance as often as  possible under cover of darkness. With  Methuen's victory, defeat will probably  be decisive.  Afean while Gatacre, with a body of regulars and local volunteers, will attempt to  force the Boers from northern Cape Colony, capture the border towns and push  on into Orange Free State territory, liis  expedition will not attract as much attention as that of Methuen'*. and Clery'a,  but those who know Gatacre .say they  would not be .surprised to learn that he  had hoisted the British flag over Bloeni-  foutein. The forward movement ol thc-e  generals -will constitute the second chapter of the South African war. and Englishmen are expecting it will make a  pleasanter ending than the first.

Toronto, November 23.���Tlie council  of the board of trade recommended for  adoption at tho forthcoming conference  of the chambers of commerce, to beheld  iu London next year, a resolution favoring the adoption of a commercial policy  by the empire based upon the principle  of mutual bent-fit, whereby each component part of the empire would receive  substantial advantages in trade.

Led By Americans.  Lvnn, Massachusetts, November 23.���  Edward S. Chester of this city, formerly  a private in Company AI Seventeenth infantry, says the American soldiers who  for crimes have been dishonorably discharged from the army officer many of  the Filipino commands*. The rebel commanders offer large inducements in the  way of salary and position to any who  will forsake the American army. Chester says these Americans are a reckless  class and in a great part to their energy  is due the tenacity of the rebellion. He  says these soldiers led the Filipinos  in several of the fiercest engagements tind  play an important part in keeping alive  the spirit of rebellion among the fragments of Aguinaldo's commands.  Decided Against the O'Neils.  AIontreal, November 23.���Judge Wur-  tele this morning granted the application  of the prosecution in the case of Mrs. II.  J. O'NeiUwife of the one time Chicago  Board of Trade "barley plunger,"  charged with defrauding creditors to  the amount of about .$.50,000, for the  appointment of a commission to take  evidence in Chicago. It is alleged that  Airs. O'Neil intended absconding to Paris  when arrested.  EUROPEAN GOVERNMENTS. ARE  PROSPECT COOP FOR AN EARLY  Start to be Made.  The prospect for an  early start upon,  the construction of  the extension of the  Crow's Nest  railway  east  from  Nelson  was brightened yesterday by the receipt  of a  telegram  from   president Shaughnessy.    On Wednesday a meeting of the  members of  the  council   of the board of  trade   was    held    for    the   purpose   of  strengthening the hands of the local railway contractors in their efforts to secure  the work.    Over ti  mouth  ago the eon-'  tracting  firm  of Tierney,  AIcLean,  Alc-  Beath & Peters put in a bid for the work  at the company's  headquarters in Montreal, but as the matter was held in abeyance until after president Shaughnessy's  visit, nothing was heard from headquar-   "  ters concerning  it.    The  council  of the  board of  trade,  recognizing  the importance   to   Nelson   of    having   the   work  performed    by    local    contractors,   who  would   purchase   their   supplies   in Nelson,  got   together   on   Wednesday   and  sent a telegram to president Shaughnessy,  asking him, in the interests of the Nelson  merchants, to give the local contractors  the preference for the work, in theevent of  other things being equal   from the company's point of view. The answer to this'  telegram was received yesterday,in which  president   Sh..ughnes.*_y     expressed    his  willingness to  meet  the  wishes  of the  members of the board, and coupled with  it an instruction to the local contractors  to get in their  render.     In   response  to  this,  the  local  contractors forwarded  a  copy  of their  former  tender  upon   the  work to Montreal, and something definite  may be  expected within  the  next  few  days.    The tender  of Tierney,  AIcLean,  MeBeath   k  Peters  was  for   the  entire  piece of  work, the  contractors  agreeing  to put up  $100,000  as  security  for  the  performance of the contract.    Those iu a  position to speak upon the matter regard  jthe chances a*,  good   for  the  local   men  securing the work.    Their  most  formidable competitors are -.aid to be  Poupore,  McVeigh   Ac Co.,  and  it is   among  the  probabilities that the work will be divided  between the two firms.

This  public sentiment, in Germany and elsewhere, .simply shows the free play which  is given to individual opinion. But this  is quite different from the attitude of  the government, which is scrupulously  pure, neither showing favor or disfavoi  to either side, and, so far as I observed,  this is the attitude throughout Europe ;  for while there has been much loose conjecture in the press concerning intervention, .such a step docs not seem to have  had the slightest consideration in official  quarters."

The mine  owners  of Rossland  told  Roderick Fin-  layson  to  go  about  his business;   that  they had  miners  that suited them, and  that they did not propose to make a fight  that would end in saddling on every mining camp in the district a feud similar  to  the one that existed in the Cu-mr, d'Alenes  for   years.

The above  i.s  from  the NVw  Denver  Ledge.     How tlifferent it is in tone from  FULL LINE OF  the utterances of the two mine owners'  organs at Nelson. The Ledgj would  smooth the way for the return of  amicable relations between employer aud  employee; would be gratified at the resumption of work; would let the past  bury its dead. The subsidized organ at  Nelson and the one that would like to  have been subsidized are both displeased  that an effort has been made to adjust  tlie existing differences. If the strife is  continued they both hope to thrive ; the  one by direct cash subsidies from the  mine owners, and the other by the indirect advantages that would possibly, result if the Semlin government were ousted from ollice. '���'��� 4  J. IIoi.iki.ick Rohkktson, manager of  the Ymir mine, is trying to make it  appear that he is opposed to Italian or  other cheap labor. Row is it then, J.  Roderick, that you are the only employer  of cheap labor in the whole of the Ymir  district'.,   Thk people of Nelson should elect a  mayor and council at the next municipal  election pledged to spend not less that  $80,000 of the city's revenue in making  permanent street improvements. More:  they should elect men to office willing to  recognize that the mayor is the respon -  sible head for the proper conduct of the  city's business. Pour members of the  present council went into office pledged  to oppose that principle, and the result is  that no oue considers hiii'self responsible  for anything. The mayor has allowed  the chairman of the public works committee to take upon himself' authority  not contemplated by the ��� provisions'of  the Municipal Clauses Act, and the result  is that whenever anything goes * wrong,  the responsibility is shifted'from one to  the other, inucli to the disgust of the  public.  ~  Tin. Miner and J. Roderick Robertson  are both much incensed over'the reported  adjustment of the differences existing in  the Slocan over the eight-hour law, and  they take occasion to show that they  would prefer that the difficulty should  remain unsettled forever rather than  have it settled on a basis of $3.50 for the  eight-hour day. Many things have happened in Kootenay that did not please .1 .-  Roderick aud his subsidized mouthpiece,'  and it is altogether likely that the people  of the district will continue transacting  business without caiini. much whether  either of these worthies are pleased or  not.

Judge Isaac Story of Summerville,  Mass . a relative ofthe famous commentator of the constitution, is the second oldest judge in his* state. The other day he  celebrated his eighty-first birthday in  vigorous health. He has been on the  bench twenty-six years, and rarely missed  a session of court.   ���  One of the special correspondents of *  the London Mail in Soutli Africa is lady  ���Sarah Wilson, the aunt of the duke of  Marlborough and wife of Captain Wilson,  who was ordered to Mafeking some time  ago. Recent despatches from Cape Town  spoke of a journey of two hundred miles  from Mafeking made by her on horseback  in aii attempt to.get news' for the journal.  The Bourbon duke of Parnift, who was  obliged, to quit"his duchy in LS59, has a  , larger family than any other royal personage iii Europe. By his first* wife, a  princess of Hottrbon-SiciJy, he "had nine  children, nil of whom survive'except the  eldest, tho late princess of Rulgari.i, By  his .second wife, wlio was a princess of  Braganza and a sister of the hereditary  grand duchess of Luxembourg, he lias  nine more children.  She Carried Napoleon.  "Below the waters of Monterey Bay,  California, lies a sunken craft that once  helped to make history. She is the Natalie, wliich in LSI5 carried Napoleon  back to France from Elba, and* set the  kings of all Europe trembling again upon  their thrones. The brigantine inconstant, as she was then called, was selected because of her swiftness to carry Napoleon back to I*Vance. From the 22nd  to the 25th of February, LSI5, she cruised  on and off Elba, watching for a signal.  On the night of the 25th "a beacon light  burned on the shore. An hour later Napoleon was on deck. Three days later,  _he���lauded" on_Cannes.��� What_happened-  to Napolron, his triumphal progress'  through France, the (light of the Bourbons, the Hundred Days, Waterloo, every  oue knows. Jn 1813 lier name changed  to the Natalie; she was doing service as a  customs cruiser for the Mexican government. Ono night In March all the "wardroom officers of the Natalie were ashore  in Monterey,, thou the gay capital of  * Spanish California, enjoying a fandango  tit tho Bal d*(.ro, or Coldeu Ball, a very  famous resort. Discipline in the Mexican  servico was lax; when the officers were  well away, all tho sailors went ashore,  (caving tlie Natalie in gathering storm  nnd fog to look out for herself. When  the morning broke, not a spar of the  Natalie was-Joft'above water. Her rudder washed awhoi-* last year, and is preserved iii a Monterey. flshmarJjet. Tiie  Natalie was teak-built and mounted a*  bron/.e swivel gun. Her upper works  came pretty near the surface, and still  .oustiti i clanger to navigation. In'  still wal.. ...ml at low tide she win'.sometimes be seen with the- aid of a water-  glass. If the expense should be met by  any historical society, tho Natalie could  easily he raised, even today, us an occasional diver has visited her aud she is  holding together well, being heavily  built, with copper bolts.  A Manly Woman.  Cecil Rhodes'-*; sister is next to  Olive Schreiner, the most inter-"  esting woman in South Africa  today. Her eccentricities are numerous,  and she is as famed fo.Tter "dislike of men  as is her brother for his of women. She  is so decidedly of the masculine type as  to attract attention at once. In complexion and manner she closaly resembles  the English squire of sporting prints, and  she lias been   endowed   with   a voice to  Is r*ow prepared io issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlin,, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yuk.on. District.  match. Indeed, there is nothing . feminine about her except her deference to  the social conventionalities in always  having a woman companion in close attendance upon her. As she has an ample  fortune, many peculiarities are forgiven  her, while her impulsive generosity wins  her many friends. On board a steamer  going down to Cape Town recently she  regulated the handicaps for the running-  matches, umpired the chicken lights, and  was particularly active in inciting to extraordinary efforts the contestants in a  tug-of-war. Her home, " Groet Schur,"  is a beautiful country place near Cape  Town, where she has made a zoological  collection that includes almost every wild  animal native to South Africa. She has  a better understanding of the politics  and statecraft of South Africa than many  a member of the colonial office.
