 MORE DISCOURAGING REPORTS  Were "the Ninth Lancers Captured?  London, November 27���4:30 a.m.���A  fresh interruption in the East African  cable service at this interesting moment  lias caused a cessation of war news. As  yet the war office has not received general Methuen's detailed list of casualties,  nor is there any information at hand regarding the whereabouts of the Ninth  Laiicers, who.were sent in pursuit of the  Boers from Graspan. Tlie Daily Mail  says that a private telegram announces  that the Lancers" are still scouting as the  head of Methuen's advance column; but,  as he announced, yesterday that he was  giving his men a day's rest, this is hardly  possible. Indeed the greatest anxiety is  felt, and more especially in view of the  fact that a Berlin journal, the Deutsche  Warte, that regularly prints Boer communications, auuouuced yesterday that  the navy brigade had lost one hundred  men at Graspan and that the Ninth  Lancers were captured.  It is understood that the government  decided to proceed immediately with the  mobilization and embarkation of a sixth  division of (JOOOinen under a well-known  lieutenant-general.  General Hildyard's achievement at  Beacon Hill is beginning to be recognized  as one of the best things the campaign  has yet shown, as it has relieved the tension of the situation in Natal, and has  brought the relief of Ladysmith within  measurable distance. ' General Buller  appears to. be confident of general  Methuen's ability, and is devoting all his  energy to Ladysmith. An attempt will  be made to reach Coienso in time to cut  off the retreat of the Boers from Weenen  over tlie Tugela river. It is feared, however, that the enemy will get there first  and destroy the bridges.  At Frere bridge the British found two  massive spans utterly wrecked by dynamite, one piece weighing 22,000 pounds  having been hurled two hundred yards.  Sir Alfred Milner has warned the various relief committees in Cape Town to be  prepared for the arrival of 10,000 refugees  from Kimberley as soon as the siege has  beeu raised. ,  According t**> a dispatch from DeAar,  dated Sunday, the Boers had destroyed  the bridge at Steynsburg the previous  day, and were being reinforced at that  point.5  -  TUESDAY MORNTOG,   NOVEMBER 28,  1899.

Some of the writers in their letters stated  that they had deposited from $200 to.  $500. Other syndicates conducted along  lines similar to the Franklin syndicate  are being inspected by the police and by  the district attorney of Kings county.  All institutions eontlucted on tlie "blind  pool" basis, whieh promise unusual profits, are under surveillance. According to  one report, Miller succeeded in making  his way to Hoboken, New Jersey, on the  day he escaped from the Brooklyn police,  and is said to have been seen on a train,  presumably en route for Canada. Other  reports have it* that he is still hiding in  New York, while many persons believe  he escaped on an outward bound ship.  John G. Agnew, who says he is manager  for the Washington syndicate, at 81  Greenpoint avenue, Brooklyn, was taken  into custody this afternoon by detectives  of the Brooklyn police force.  THE BOER INVASION OF NATAL  METHUEN WON A SECOND BATTLE  Maintained the Regiment's Reputation.  London, November 27.���At Wellington  barracks the following telegra'm, undated,  . was posted from colonel Crabb of .the  Grenadier Guards, respecting the fight at  - Belmout: "The"Grenadiers,, on the right  and Scots Guards on tlie left successfully  carried a height east of Belmont. The  battalion folly maintained the reputation  of the regiment."

Large Contributions to Different Funds.  London, November 27.���Sir Thomas  Lipton, in view of the fact that his steam  yacht Erin cannot be utilized by the government as a hospital ship, has sent ��10.-  000 to the princess of Wales to be used  at her discretion for the benefit of the  soldiers and sailcirs." The executive committee of the American hospital ship  fund has received an anonymous gift of  ��5000 from the United States, together  i/with a promise. of as much more if it  should be needed.  Sanguine Mr. Joubert.  . Berlin", November 27.���General Joubert, commander in chief of the Boers  forces, writing to a-frieud in Madgeburg,  says: "It is no vanity on my part to  assert that we will triumph. We prepared for the wap. -.* We knew it was inevitable. The war will probably last a  year, but I am e&tfyinced that the blood  spilled will never be upon our children."  A Once Prominent Man's Fall.  Chicago, November 27.���Alonzo J.  Whiteman, formerly state senator in the  Minnesota legislature and prominent in  politics in that "state, who disappeared  after being convicted of forgery iu that  city, and who was recently rearrested in  New York, was taken to the house of  correction today to serve a sentence of  two-y ears. ������ *    -.������������  A Swindler Still at Large.  New York, November 27.---.The police  have as yet found no trace of Miller, the  swindler.   Letters poured in oti deputy  chief MacKellar today from all parts of  t   the country, written by persons who had  ''���''been deceived by literature that had been  In His Advance to Kimberley.  London, November 26.���This afternoon  the war office posted the following dispatch, dated Cape Town, November 26,  from general Forester Walker :  Lord Methuen reports that he moved  yesterday (Saturday) at 3:30 p.m.awith  tlie Ninth regiment, the mounted brigades, naval brigade and two. batteries,  the Guards following with the baggage.  Near Gras Pan, about 20 miles nortli of  Belmont, on the railway line to Kimberley, 2500 Boers with six guns and two  machine guns opposed him. The action  began at 0 a.m. Our batteries fired  shrapnel very accurately until the  heights seemed. clear. Then the naval  brigade and infantry advanced to the  assault. The firing was desperate until  10 a.m , when the heights were carried.  The Boers retreated when the Lancers  were sent to intercept them. The result  was not known at time of telegraphing.  The artillery took immediate advantage  of the enemy's retirement.  Early in the action 500 Boers attacked  our rear guard. The brigade met this  and also protected the flanks. The naval  brigade acted with the greatest gallantry  aud suffered heavily, but uo particulars  are yet known. The enemy showed the  greatest stubborness aud must have suffered greatly. Twenty were buried. It  is known that 31 were killed and 48  wounded. More than 50 horses were  found dead in one place. Oue battery  fired 500 rounds. Our force must halt  one day at Gras Pan to rest and replenish  ammunition. The force worked splendidly  and is prepared to overcome many difficulties. The naval brigade, the Royal  marines, the light infantry and the first  battalion of the North Lancashire regiment especially distinguished themselves.  The admiralty is in receipt of the following dispatch from rear admiral Harris,  dated Cape Town, Novemver 26th :  1 deeply regret to report the following  casualties in the action at Gras Pan yesterday :  Killed���Commander   Bthelton   of  the  -PowerfuI,-major~Plumbe~of_tte~~D6ris,~_r  captain of the Monarch.  Wounded���Flag lieutenant Prothero of  the Doris, severely; Lieutenant Jones of  tho Doris.  The other casualties are not yet known.  Commander De Horsey, captain Morgan  and lieutenant Wilson, all of the Monarch, have proceeded to join the naval  brigade with general Methuen.  Guy Sensor, captain. - of the royal  marines of the Monarch, was also among  the killed.  London, .November 27���7 a. in.���No  further news respecting lord Methuen's  advance has been received, and the absence of official details regarding his  losses creates the greatest suspense, and  especially since the publication of the  heavy sacrifices endured by the naval  brigade. No alarm, however, is felt as to  his position, despite the evidence that  the Boers intend to contest every foot of  the way. It was known that in the absence of sufficient cavalry he would be  compelled to advance slowly, and he has  a preference for night or early dawn  attacks, which events seem to have justified, the Boers being decidedly averse to  darkness for their operations.  The fact that in  the  Graspan action  one   British   battery   fired   500   rounds  proves the desperate nature of the fight,  and there is little doubt that the casualties were heavy.   It is now known no  guns were captured iu the Belmont engagement.     ___^________i___^_  An Agreement Prolonged.  London, November 27.���The St. Petersburg correspondent of the Daily Mail asserts that the Russian and Persian governments have signed an agreement prolonging for teti years Russia's railway  construction monopoly in Persia.  Is Now a Retrograde Movement.  London, November 27.���For the moment, .the Boer invasion  southward iu  Natal seems not only to have spent its  force, but to have developed into a retrograde  movement, although with forces  so mobile as those of the Boers it is difficult to surmise where they will appear  next.    Apparently,  general  Clery's advance to the relief   of   Ladysmith has  really commenced.   So far as ascertainable, general Hildyard's force whieh is  already at Freer   must   number 10,000  men, and should be* able to reoccupy Coienso, where it may have to await reinforcements of artillery and cavalry before  joining hands with general White.    General Barton now. occupies P_stcourt, and  Mooi     River     will     be     occupied    by  reinforcements   from    Pietermaritzburg.  The whole situation has been distinctly,  cleared since the arrival of general  Buller in Natal.    Though doubtless the British will have many difficulties  to  overcome  before  general White is released.  A big. battle is likely to occur at the  passage bf the'Tugela river, and  it may  be expected that the Boers will make a  stand there.    In any case, wherever they  elect to try to;stem the' British  advance  there will be desperate fighting.   -  That general Gatacre has no easy task  is proved by the latest dispatches from  Queenstown and elsewhere showing that  a majority of the population on the frontier have openly declared themselves on  the side of the Boers. Bands of Boers  are doing immense damage oyer a wide  area, and they have now appeared south  of Stromberg. General Gatacre, however,-  moves to the front today, so it is hoped  by the British the invasion will soon be  stemmed.       '   FISTIC  AND  BICYCLE  EVENTS  ( .  None of Them Record Breakers.  New York," November 27.���The fistic  on test between Bob Armstrong, the  champion heavyweight boxer of Chicago,  and Jim Jeffords of California, which  was slated to go 25 rounds - before the  tHercules Athletic Club tonight, ended  rather abruptly in the third round. Both  men went head foremost from a clinch  over the ropes into a box in the second  round, and in the third Jeffords took  another header from the effect of a right  swing on the jaw. This took all the  steam out of the big fellow, and when he  regained his feet he was sent sprawling  from a right upper cut in the vicinity of  the belt. Jeffords rolled over in agony  and his seconds claimed a foul, on the  ground that he was hit below the belt.  Referee Johnny Eckllardt decided that  the blow landed fairly and gave his verdict in favor of Armstrong, after Jeffords  had been counted out and carried to his  corner.  MRpMPHts. Tennessee, November 27.���  The fight tonight between Caspar Leon  "of New"Yorkfalicl Johnny^Ritchie of St.  Louis resulted-in a draw after the 4th  round had been fought. Leon broke his  arm in the third round, and on the advice of a physician attending, the fight  was stopped and the referee declared the  contest a draw.  Kansas City, November 27.���Bert Repine of Nashville won the 48-hour bicycle  race.

Galveston, Texas, November 27.���  Charles Coghlan, the actor, who has beeu  ill here since October 20th, with acute  gastritis, died this morning. He was 56  years of age. At the time of his death  he had nearly finished his dramatization  of Vanity Fair for his daughter*. The  remains will be taken to Prince Edward  Island, his late summer home.

Paris, November 27.���In the chamber  of deputies today, the discussion of the  foreign policy of the government was  resumed. The minister of foreign affairs,  M. Delcasse, protested against the attacks  of the opposition," which, he says, did not  recoil even before the risk of embroiling  France in external difficulties. This called  forth Lestist cheers aud Rightist protests.  M. Denys Cochin, leader of the Cler-  icalsj expressed surprise at the importance  attached tothe Anglo-French newspaper  polemics, which he said were only froth.  He added that he was no partisan of the  policy of fist-shaking, but he thought  the war in Soutli Africa gave the opportunity to seek certain comments. Although he disapproved of fist-shaking,  he equally disapproved of the policy of  cro.ssed arms. M. Denys Cochin concluded with urging a more active policy  in China.  Delcasse then moved the re-establishment of the credit for an embassy at the  Vatican, as a matter of national interest  to France, a great Catholic nation, adding  that as long as the government interested itself in the relations of French  .clergy with the curia, an embassy at the  Vatican was-alsolutely necessary.  Replying, M. Denys Cochin said that  while the Clericals would vote for the  credit^ it must riot be construed as a vote  of confidence in the government.  The credit was adopted by 349 to 202  votes, and tlie liouse adjourned.  Prominent Citizen Suicides.  GeorgevhjLE, Quebec, November 27.���  K.

Montreal, November 27.���The evidence in connection with the charge  against president Weir of the Banque  Ville Marie is all in. Donald McMaster,  counsel for the accused, commenced his  address to the jury this morning. It is  expected he will conclude in time for  solicitor-general Fitzpatrick to commence  .the address in behalf of the prosecution.  The verdict, may be reached by midnight.  MacMaster made a strong appeal on behalf of the accused, declaring that it was  not likely that a man of Weir's age���77  years���would-wIlfullyJbecome a criminal.  He contended that Weir, after the suspension of the bank, left the institution  just as it was, aud called in the service of  Garand, a banker, which fact indicated  that the president had nothing to conceal, an act which proved the accused  was not a criminal,  Found Guilty.  Montreal, November 27. ��� W. A.

Will Certainly be Defeated.  St Johns, 'Newfoundland, November  27.���An unique political situation has  been created by Mr. Morin's dismissal  from the colonial ministry. Sir James  Winter, the premier, can rely upon a following of ten in ��the legislature. Mr.  Bond, the leader of the opposition, has  ten, and Mr. Morin leads six independents. It; is j>i*actically impossible to  bring about a.fusion between any two of  these factions. Early in January the  legislature will meet and the Winter ministry-is. almost certain to be defeated.  What will happen after that is' impossible to predict.  AN ADVERTISING  PROPOSITION  That Should Have Been Made to the Miner.  A few weeks ago The Tribune was in  receipt of an advertising proposal from a  Montreal advertising agency to insert an  advertisement of a tobacco firm-at the  rate of-50 cents an inch per month, and  we respectfully referred the offer to our  e.steemed contemporary, the personal organ of J.

An Able Man.  President Steyn, who occupies the highest position in the Orange Free State, has  risen through his own determination of character and his untaint-  able honesty from the lowest to the highest position in the state. For six years  he studied law in England and Holland,  and returned to his native country in  1882, when he was twenty-five years of  age. From that point he never looked  back.

A good story is told by, an English  tourist who stayed for a week in apartments in Aberdeen, the "Granite City."  . "J had heard," he says "of the canny  folk of Aberdeen, and my experience,  short though it was, proved that rumor  had rightly estimated the character of  the people. The streets are granite, the  houses are granite, and the inhabitants  are granite; and when they have a granite baby they give it a ball of granite, for  fear it should break any other toy.

Such is the case with .1. C. Drewry. Not  many years ago Drewry was a reporter  on the Toronto Globe. In the capacity  of travelling correspondent he drifted to  Nelson and then to Rossland aud secured  interests in good properties iu both these  camps. Stocks went skyward and Drewry found himself wealthy. Seven months  ago he came to Moyie and secured mining  property. Last week his syndicate  amalgamated with the owners of tho St.  Eugene and the company was capitalized  at $3,500,000. It is now said tliat  Drewry'*. interests in this company alone  are easily worth $300,000,  A Quebec Bank Bobbed.

An expert examination will be made  this week of the Oregon City claim, Ten-  mile. It is under option to Spokane  parties.  The C. P. It. authorities assert that  business is reviving in a most appreciable  manner throughout the camp. Large  quantities of freight are moving daily up  and down the lake.  Ten-mile   creek   is   busier at present'  than at any time during  the year.   The  prospects are bright  for several  properties to be working this winter.  The C. P.

The Emily Edith mine, under instructions from Vancouver, has beeu closed  down for the Avinter, and the superintendent and-his family htive left Silverton  for the States, from whence they came.  Cutting Affray in the Slocan.  A stabbing affray that came well-nigh  having a  fatal  termination  occurred at  the  Enterprise  hotel,  Aylwim,  ou Ten-  mile, last week.    Stun  Long  and  a well-  known character around the lake, called  "Kelly the Packer,"  both of whom were  employed, in packing  on  the cieek, got j  into a slight altercation.    After a few  words Kelly went outside, but soon returned and  renewed the quarrel, apply-   .  ing a  nasty   epithet.    Deeming  himself  menaced Long struck Kelly, who at once  replied with a knife J-lttust���having had  the weapon in  readiness���in  the chest,  just above the heart, and followed it up0  with auother towards the stomach.

It was across the chest and required five  stitches, while  the  other  was .-core of ti  slanting cut.    Long is tapidly recovering.  As soon as possible an alarm was sent to  the police at Now Denver, but Kelly had  made his  escape  to  the south, with the  authorities hot on his trail.

The trouble in the Slocan has  been and is that the men who manage  the Dimes are unwilling to deal with the  agents of the men who have labor to sell  on the same basis as they deal with  agents who are selling other commodities. The mine worker knows that he  can best transact business through an  agent, and his agent is the miners'  union. When the mine managers realize  that the miners' union is purely a business organization, they will find no more  difficulty in dealing with it than with  any other organization that is purely a  business one.  Althocoii the Spokane .Review of  yesterday morning had a two-column report of a fight in Soutli Africa, in which  general Methuen's troops defeated the  BoerS, not a word of it was allowed to  sift through to Thk Tribune over the  wires of tlie Canadian Pacific Telegraph  Company. Vet the -managers of the  Canadian Pacific are continually harping  on "Canada for the Canadians." Canadians, like other people, want the news,  and if they can't get/ what they want in  a Canadian newspaper they will get iu a  newspaper printed in the United States.  It is safe to say that tlie Spokane Review  has a larger circulation in southeastern  British Columbia than all the papers  printed in British Columbia combined,  and all because the Canadian Pacific,  wliich has a monopoly of the Associated  Press, doles out the poorest news service  that can possibly be doled out.  of  cigars and diy goods*.

Different Degrees of Incompetency.  A good story i.s going the rounds of  .society at Simla, India, jtist now. * It  seems that an unfortunate clerk in one of  the government offices, with 23 years'  service, recently took leave, and overstayed his leave by nine days. He was  called upon for au .explanation, and, in  the end, the secretary ordered liim to be  dismissed.    The clerk thereupon appealed  m  to the viceroy, who called foi; an explanation of the circumstances. The secretary showed that the man had not only  overstayed his leave nine days, but was  hopelessly incompetent as well. His excellency thereupon ordered the man to  be reinstated, and wrote across the secretary's explanation that he considered the  hopeless incompetent-man- Avas the pne  who-took 2.'. years to find out the other's  incompetence^   A Coming Contest Causes Comment.

Since hostilities between tlie J.oers and  the British began evidence has accumulated that the latter liave all along misjudged the chinacter and capacity of  their foes. In eveiy encounter of consequence that has so far occurred the British troops have suffered most. They  have lost heavily in dead and wounded,  and upwards of two thousand of their  soldiers are prisoners of war. Besides  that they have been driven back on the  frontiers of the two republics and penned  up in three towns ���Mafeking, Kimberley,  and Ladysmith. The perfect investment  ot tliese places has changed the whole aspect of the war from tho original British  standpoint. And tlie relief of the invested towns, owing to tlie skill, vigilance  and activity of the Boers is a problem of  increasing gravity.  In the use of armored trains the British commanders seem to have underrated  the capacity of the Boers to minimize  the harm they might do.

As a consequence, the  British have lost three armored trains  aheady and a lot of men with each one,  and they liave narrowly escaped losing  others. The savage dervishes of the  Soudan may not have acquired the art of  train derailing, but the British troops  have learned that tlie burghers of the  Transvaal and the Free State are not  dervishes.  It was assumed by the British at the  beginning of the war that while the Boers  were experts with the rifie, tliey were no  good as ai tillerists. They have since had  ample opportunity to revise their judgment. Tlie Boers have surprised tlie  English by being in possession of plenty  of artillery aud knowing how to use it,  and the immense stock of munitions of  war witli wliich they are supplied, and  which seems quite as much a surprise to  their adversaries as their ability to use  it, proves that they have been preparing  for years for what is now taking place.
