 a*i^__3s_r.��rii*av*Tiii tmumm  ���v  THE BATTLE OF LOMBARD'S KOP  Described by an Eye "Witness..  The Avar correspondent of the Morning  Leader, of London  lias contributed the  most graphic account  of the defeat of  general White's forces at Lombard's Kop.  In  his   account, he  recites  the object  wliich caused ihe commander of the garrison at Ladysmith  to start the  troops  upon what proved to be  so  hopeless  an  expedition.      Writing   under   the   date  of October 31st hesays : " Last Friday we  went out.in force and camped in front of  the   enemy   in  a well-selected   position  slightly to  the southeast of   tho  town.  When we   prepared   to attack  the next  morning the Boers had flown���disappeared with  marvellous completeness  under  cover of'-arkness.    Our men returned to  Ladysmith first thing Sauiiday'innrning.  disappointed at having  been done out of  the fight for which they Were spoiling.  A few hour later the Boers appeared  on a high hill, practically dominating the  town at a distance of about four miles  from our camp. They were observed  throwing up defences, and it became a  matter of general knowledge that the  enemy was getting into position the  great 40 pounder, which created such  alarm at Dundee.       "  The Boers proceeded with this work  calmly under our eyes. Maybe sir George  White, finding how .difficult it is to pin  the .slippery fellows down to any one  spot, was under the impression tlmt if he  allowed them to get their pet gun in battery he might have a chance of striking  at their main body when he attacked the  position. How far the result justilied  him in any such belief must be left to individual appreciation after reading the  history of what occurred at the battle  fought outside the town yesterday.

And we should have been obliged  to fall back to town as soon as the task  was accomplished. There was nothing to  gain by not recognizing the situation aud  facing it. We were outnumbered ; and  our own turning movement was successfully turned by an enemy who moved  behind these hills with incredible rapidity. A retirement of our forces was  imperative.   _^   THE CHANCELLOR WILL RESIGN  We. were told on Sunday night that  the army was going out to capture this  gun. The first movement taken by our  forces was to send out a column under  colonel.Carleton. with major Adye, D. A.  A. G., a. staff officer, to march by night  up Bell's Spruit tind seize Nicholson's  Nek, or some position in the vicinity,  with the object of turning the enemyV  right flank. The column was composed  of the Tenth mountain battery, four tind  a half companies of the 'Gloucester.-*, and  six companies of the R>yal Ii-i-h Fu-i-  leeis. These troop-* 1* fd town at 10  o'clock on Sunday night���the next day a  few stragglers /wandered,'hack into camp,  all that remained to us of this flanking  force. ' . , .  At 3 o'clock on Monday morning the  main body marched otit. A few minute-*  later a shell from the Boer 10 pounder  shiieked over the town stud hur-t in the  open beyond the railway station. Thi-  was an indication tlmt the Boers, meant a  counter attack.  It was evident tliat the main body of  the enemy was well to the right of the  hill on wliich their big gun wa-* mounted.  Siti column was sent) out through the  Helptuaker road with a view of turning  the enemy's left flank. Of cour-e, we  imagined at the time that the Gloucester-  and Irish Fusileers \\\<i'ti in a sufficiently  strong piv-ition to keep a very lai ge body  of the enemy bit-y on our left. As our  flanking party passed along the foot of  Lombard's Kop they canie under a vtivy  heavy fire from the enemy, who showed  himself in great force in the covered htlhs  and kopjes, tine ea-t of Lady-mith.  Our cavalry w driven back to cover.  Under a terrific fiie from the enemy's  field and siege guns, which it was evident thus early had a longer range than  most of our own pieces, the artillery got  pluckily into battery. Their fire tva. so  excellent tluit the Boer gunners were  ���more thaironce driveirfrom~che_guns by  the persistent hail of shrapnel, but they  were b,*ick again tit their posts the instant our fire slackened. Uu fortunately  the enemy's position was so strong, and  he had so many long-range guns posted  in advantageous spots, that our artillery  was continually under the necessity uf  manceuverhig for position.  Two indications that we liad embarked  upon a hea vy ta*-k iu going out to meet  the Boers wan-, forthcoming at ju-t about  the same moment. On our extreme It ft  a patrol of the 10th Hussars was driven  in, with a riderle-s horse leading the  way. The Boers came in hot pursuit to  within (100 ytucl*. of our outwoiks. On  our extreme right the Fifth Lancers were  chased back in equally hob liable. A battery of artillery, a fewcompauie-, I think  ib was, of the Manchester.", and the Fifth  Lancers Ind got into au auk ward fix out  there. Believing that they were well beyond the enemy'*-, extreme left, the artillery was got iuto battery on a somewhat  exposed ridge. They had barely unlim-  bered their guns befoie they had encountered a ten ifie fiu-ilade from a strong  party ot Boers, who stretched away beyond Bui nana Hill.  Ib was a close touch for the cannon.  The guuners pluckily dragged them out  of action with ropes; i. na. too d.mger-  ous to attempt to bring the hor-e.s on the  ridge. Sticking to their woik with tt  tenacity worthy of British soldiers, the  artillerymen���belonging t�� one of the  batteih"* from Dundee ���pulled their gtin.s  out of a fearfully tight corner and saved  them from falling into the enemy'*,  hands.  Tne Boers, although they had practically evacuated .heir main position,  held a whole line of hills to the eastward.  To h *ve turned them out would have  i.��G-j34itated the atoituiug o�� a half-dozen  No More Half Hearted Measures.  London, December 18.���The black  week, as the last week is universally  called now, has evidently aroused the  government and the war office to a full  sense of their responsibility, and of the  magnitude of the task before them, and  the papers tTniveivally applaud this  awakening. Rumor has it that the question of expense has. really been at the  bottom of the half-hearted measures  hitherto adopted, and that it is riot unlikely that sir Michael Hicks-Beach, chancellor of the exchequer, and other members of the cabinet will resign. The  tragic circumstances of the appointment  of lord Huberts, almost simultaneously  with the announcement of the death of  his promising son, excite the deepest public sympathy.-'  - Lieutenant Roberts was an only sou.  and had been his father's aide-de-camp  since 189.*5. He ..served in Waziristan. and  iu the Chitral and Nile expeditions.  Such was his display of galantry on Friday, in an attempt to re-secure the guns,  that he was recommended for the Victoria cross.  The Liberal organs foreshadow a serious reckoning for the government when  the time conies. The Daily Chronicle  hints that 'general sir William Butler,  who was /recalled from the Cape coin-  maud because of his Boer sympathies,  long ago advised the government that  bhe prosecution of Mr. Chamberlain's policy would make heavy reinforcements  for the Cape imperative.  General sir Chat-le*. Warren, commanding the .11Ii division of the army corps  has arrived at Cape Town. It is under-  wrnwl that he will proceed to Port  Elizabeth.  --No .further* news has been received  regarding the battle at Taguela river.  Regarding the battle at Magersfontein  reports show that the retirement of the  Briti.-h troops was executed with the  greatest coolness and ordered under a  heavy artillery fire.  Mafeking was safe on December 6th,  aud colonel Baden-Powell, the Briti-.li  commander there, was still actively pushing out Iii-* defenses. At that time the  ..������������I-** had offered to exchange lady Sarah  Wilson, who was captured while acting  as a coriesponding for the Daily Mail, for  general Benjamin Viljoen, who was captured tit Elandslaagte, but the offer was  declined.

N..W Forth', December 17,���-The London  report of the Sun stiys: The act of the  Boer authorities in granting only part of  the conces.-ious requested by this government, in behalf of the Biitish prisonets  at Pietoria, only intensified instead of  abating the feeling iu official circles heie  growing out of the manner in which the  Boers have treated the humanitarian  overtures of the United States. The  attitude of the Boers is regarded here as  not only contrary to the usages of civilized wtiifare. t>ub extremely discourteous  to the United States, a neutrul nation,  which is actuated merely by humanitarn  motives in endeavor ing to care for the  Britisli prt-oners. .So far as the officials  are able to di-cover there i~* nothing that  this government may do with propriety  to bringing about a change in the attitude of the Boer*-, other than to continue  to pre**.*- for more f.-i vot able treatment for  the captured soldiers of the Brilu.li  army.       Spain Recognises the President.  Madrid, December  17.���The   Spani-h  goveriiiuent has formally recognized general Cipher-mo as president of the republic of. Venezuela. '  Prom Dublin's Politicians,  Dublin, December 17;^���The announcement that a pro-Boer liieeting would be  convened as ti protest  against the; proposal of Trinity College to confer a  degree upon Joseph Chamberlain, led to excelling  scenes. * A large -force" of   police  was called out and the troops weie held  in readiness.    Maiid Gonne, the  so-called  Irish Joan of Arc, and James Connelly,  the Irish republican, drove in  a  wagoh-  ette to the place appointed for the meeting,   which   was   attended  by  a   large  crowd.    Mr. Connelly tried to speak, but  was prevented by the police. The wagonette then made a tour of the .-street, the*  crowd  rapidly  increasing, and  cheering  for  the  Boers,  singing "God  Save  Ire-:  land "and  " We'll  Hang  Joe  Chamberlain  on  a Sour Apple Tree," and using  disgusting expressions against the queen,  the.empire and the army.'   While  passing Dublin' castle  the  occupants  of the  wagonette   waved   their flag defiantly,  whereupon the police stopped the vehicle  and seized the flag.  The wagonette then drove tothe room**  of the Irish Transvaal committee, -where  Me-srs. Michael Davitt, William Redmond and J. O'Brien were waiting. A  meeting of about (50 persons w.i�� held.  Mes-rs. Davitt, Redmond and O'Brien  speaking in violent condemnation of the  war and of Mr. Chamber lain, and declaring the hitter's vi-ifc to Ireland at such a  moment was proof of his callous nature.  The speakers urged that should an opportunity occur, DubHiiites ought to show,  their detestation of the colonial secretary  in an untnistakeable fashion.  Ultimately, a resolution, proposed by  Mr. Davitt, was carried denouncing the  war and calling upon tiie powers, particularly the United States, to take steps  to injure the independence of the Boer,  republic. The meeting clo=ed between  tremendous cheers evoked bv a rumor  that Ladysmith had fallen.

Nor at either of these  critical periods was Great Britain so isolated politically, or regarded with birch  di-.like and suspicion as are now almost  everywhere apparent. Unless the calmness which impresses the foreign observer  proceeds only from apathy, or a want of  sufficient imagination to realize the imminent danger to the whole fabi ic of our  empire, the great efforts now required  will surely be made before it is too late  to retrieve the situation.

An Indian Prince Visits Nelson. *  A distinguished visitor was entertained  at the Phair  Hotel  on  Saturday.     The  gentleman in question arrived on the last  train  Friday night, among  his   fellow-  travellers being 'superintendent IMarpole  of tlie C.  P.  R.  and  other well-known  coast men.    It was quickly rumored that  the  new  arrival  was   a   native   Indian  prince, and  throughout the day he was  the cynosure of curious  eyes.    He registered under the name of Shaver, but the  g ntlemeii f.-om  the  coast state that lie  lias been passing, under an Indian name  in .Vancouver for some weeks, and representing himself to.be a scion of a royal  Indian house, nor is  tliere any  proof to  the contrary.    The  prince, however, has  been unfortunate since coming to .British  Columbia.    His adventures or misadventures  commenced   when    an   American,  visitor to the Terminal  city spotted him  as  Aguinaldo,  the Filipino   leader.     A  warrant was 'secured  by  the: American  consul, and the Indian  was placed under  arrest, though he quickly  convinced the  authorities that he was uot.the rebellious  leader. Later on the prince became fiuan-  cialljr embarrased and .floated small loans  with a couple of Vancouver clergymen as  a result of  which  he  was. charged with  obtaining    -money    fraudulently.      The  charge  was  not   sustained but the publicity was too much  for the prince.    He  came to Nejson  and  stated   that he had  intended going to Rossland, but concluded  the Aveather was too severe and took the  next, boat  up the  lake.     The  prince is  tall, well dre.s*-ed  and  good looking, but  his peculiar olive complexion  betrays to  the observer the fact that  he is a native  of sunnier climes than this.  An Important Departure.  Hon. G. W; Ross has marked his accession to the' premiership of Ontario by  adopting a iievv policy in regard to certain natural products, which is given effect by order-in-council. as follows:  2. That having in view a large scope  for the em pli >ynien t of ca pi t al and labor  in the copper-nickel mines and works, it  is desirable to secure the establishment'  in the province of .refining plants in accordance with the scheme of the chat ter  (jf the Canadian Copper Company or  otherwise ; aud, if necessary to thesucee-s  of this object, to a��-k that effect be given  to the provisions of the act [chapter (J7 of  (50 01 V.] for inipo-sing export duties on  nickel and copper, subject to such modifi  cations in favor of the United Kingdom  and the other colonics of the British empire as may appear to be iu tho common  Interest.  3. That for safeguarding the public in-  tore-sts in ungran.ed lauds,of the crown  it is advisable that all giants of mining  lands hereinafter issued j-hall provide in  FULL LINE OF  Front Doors  Inside Doors  Screen Doors  Windows  Inside Finish  local and coa-it.  Flooring  local and copitit.  Newel Posts  Stair Rail  the patent or lease that the copper or  nickel ores upon or in such lands shall be  treated and refined in the province so as  to produce fine nickel aud copper of  marketable quality, and that for any violation or evasion of this proviso by the  guarantee, his heirs or assigns, such lands  shall revert to and be vested in Her  Majesty, her successors and assigns for  the public use of the province, freed and'  discharged of any interest or claim of  any other person or persons "whatsoever,  as if they liad never been granted.  An Ex-Premier's Opinion.  Ex-premier J. H. Turner writes as follows to editor Gosnellof the Greenwood  Miner :    "The fact of it is, British Colum-*.  bia should be run with less polities, instead of more.    It should go as a business  institution.    What is wanted is a policy  to open it  up  by  railroads,  roads  and  trails ;  to educate within  proper limits ;  to develop agriculture, horticulture and  milling ; to protect labor and capital; to  have a proper hospital system���to do all  that is possible on these lines, but at the  same time to keep taxatiou as low as consistent with, good work ;  aiid, above all.  to keep tip  the,credit  of the  province.  Without this being good, the others are  impossible."   Ecclesiastical Squabble.  London, December 17.���The most Rev.  William Dalryuiple McL-igan, archbishop  of York, in a pastoral letter regarding  the ritual .says: '"It has been widely  stated thatthe bishops have determined  to-prosecute clergy who do hot confirm  Tliese rumors are without the slightest  authority. We not believe thai a single  bishop though t of sitch a step."  Chamberlain in Ireland.  Dublin, December 17.���Joseph, Chamberlain and Mrs. Chambeiiain are the  guests of earl Cadogiiii, lord lieutenant of  Ireland, and the countess Cadogan, prior  to Mr. ''Chamberlain receiving a degree  from Dublin University.on Monday.  m  D.
