The Invasion of Cape Colony Mafe
hint Garrison Holding His Own
Xo Xews From Ladysmitb.
Iisikin, Nov. 11. The day bat
brought forth no great news, and little
change baa taken place either in Natal
or on the north and northwestern
frontier ol Cape Colony. Tne chief fact
it the opening cf the bombardment ol
Kimlierley Tuesday by Free State
artillery, .which proved, according to an
ollicial statement, ntterly Ineffective.
Tiie iloei investment of the town, how
ever, Is sui, I to be tightening. Skirmish
ing between the Kimberley mounted
troops and the lioers early in the week
resulted in severe Boer losses, the British
force lobing one killed and one wounded.
Advices Irom Orange river confirm the
report of the F'ree Stale troops' advance
upon the north ol Cape Colony, but,
owing to the retirement of the British
forces from the borderland, no serious
collision has yet occurred. The coming
week, however, Is certain to see import
ant developments in this district. An
ofllcial dispatch recording a skirmish
near Uelinont, in w hlch Colonel Falconer
wa killed, three other officers were
wounded, one dangerously, and Uo
privates slightly wounded, is far from
clear. It it not known whether Colonel
Falconer wat preparing tor a British ad
vance or wa merely endeavoring to as
certain the numbers of the Boer.
Iipfttchet from Mafeking show that
Colonel Baden-Powell's little force it

punishment upon the Boers, whose ar
tillery has apparently proved valueless.

A Coming Conflict
I.omkin, Nov. 11. In connection with
the reported Anglo-American under
standing regarding an open door in
China, Japan' attitude in far Kastern
Asia is much canvassed. Severul Cor
reniiondenls in China talk of a c mdng
conllict between Japan and Ku'sia over
Cores. A letter from Seoul, w hich ap

"The Japanese are convinced that to
permit Russia to roiuiro Core or es
tablish linssiaii a-MVrid.mcy In N irthern
China would be strategically, politically
and commeii ially n deadly menace to
Japan's rapid1? developing strength.
Japan believes her navy is strong

opinion it that the interest of the two
nations are to conflicting that it it im

Eii;ht Thousand Troops Reached South
Africa in the Last Forty E i yh t
Hours Thousands More This
London, Nov. 13 A special dispatch
from Purban, dated Thursday evening,
"Native runner who have Just ar
rived here from Prakensburg district re
port that the Boer suffered a severe de
feat at Lailytmith tbit morning. Tbe
Boer gum were silenced after four houit'
fighting during which the Boer losses
were heavy. No details leceived."
Aid For Geueral White.
London, Nov. 13. The simultaneous
attacks on Ladysmitb, Mafeking and
Kimberley which opened Thursday
manifest the full recognition by the
Boers of the fuct that every day lessens
th.'ir chances of a successful onslaught
on any of the three British strongholds.
Joubert's chance, of reaching Pieter
rrarizburg can be said to have vanished.
Ttiis is already reported to be admitted
by folonel Schiel, the German officer
commanding the Boer artillery, who is
supposed to have been largely the author
of tho Boer plan of campaign, and who
in an Interview is alleged to have said:
"The Boers' intention was to have
captured PieterniRritzbnrg and then to
dictate terms. But all hope of ac
complishing Ibis must now be a
bandoned. There is no douht that from
a British point of view the British situa
tion la rapidly improving. Nearly 8000
troops reached South Africa during the
last forty eight hours, e.nd by the end of
week from 6000 to 7000 mire will be
adJed to the British etrenth in Natal.
These will probably be pushed forward
to Estcourt, bringing the British force
there up to 10.000 men and making a
general attack on I.a lysmith by General
Joubert very hazardous. "
At cavalry and artillery beloiijtin? to
General Mcthuen's division will not
have arrived by then, the advance from
Kitcourt may be delayed, but if it is
defined cj-mtiiil to open communication
with the beleaguered town at the earliest
pissihle moment, General Metiincn, it
is believed, may decide to replace the
regular cavalry and artillery by the
Natal and outlander mounted forces ai d
the naval guns, in which case it is
claimed it onght to be possible to occur, y
Colenso and stretch out a hand lo
White by Monday.
It is believed the course to be followed
by Melhnen must necessarily be dictated
I entirely by official knowledge of Geneial
White' position and resources, and ex
pel ts hopeMcthuen will l able to await
concentration of the whole division he
fore advancing, and thus have a letter
chance of dealing a, telling blow at Jou
bert's main army, which, it is asserted,
will be caught between two British forces
and compelled either to fight a general
action or retire.

the result that there ia great mortality
