Heavy Flbt at Ladysuiitb.
London, Nov. CO. The pre nt week,
according to the dispatches from the
front, ought to see a change In the de
fensive tactics hitherto maintained by
the British in South Africa, It Is said
the task allotted to General Cleary, that
of relieving I.adysmiili, will teat his
generalship to the utmost. The Boers
are developing a groat deal of strength
in the neighborhood of Kstcourt, and
General Jouliert is reported to be moving
Southward himself in order to direct the
movement to repul the British advance,
after, it would seem, attempting to
This latter movement is already in
progress. The Boer practically sur
round the town. Another small force
was discovered at Willow Grange, south
of JNteourt yesterday (Sunday evening.
Major Thorneycroft, with a detachment
of infantry, made a sortie and engsged
the Boers, but with no in a: er nil result.
The so-called Boer attempts to rush
Estcourt on Saturday were apparently
merely a reconnaissance resulting in the
Boers obtaining the information which
they desired, nnmely, that Estcourt is
fairly strongly held and has naval guns
in position. The Boers then withdrew
out of danger, but remained at points

Terrific Battle TbursJar.
London, Nov. 20. A special dispatch
from Estcourt, dated November 20, says
a report has reached there ol a battle at
Ladysmith Wedneaday, Njvember 15,
lasting from daybreak until 2 o'clock in
the afternoon. Many Boera are said to
have been killed, and many are reported
taken prisoners. The British losses are
reported to be much less.
Another battle is said to have occurred
Thursday. It Is described as the heaviest
yet fought. The Boers' dead, It is added,
nirnher hundreds, while the British
losses were comparative ly small.
Attack Delayed Too Long.
Naw Yoart, Nov. '.0. A dispatch to
the Tribune from London say: Estcourt
has remained tbe center of interest for
'be last twenty-'our hours, since the
D i'ch allies are attempting to carry out,
al the last moment, the tactica which
might have leen most fT-ctive a fort
night ago. The w ar ofli?e bulletin during
the forenoon tended to miniurxt th
earlier report of a Boer repulse by the
garrison. It was a slight outpost affair,
with a single shell fired from the naval
gun and a hasty retreat after small fire

A settler writing to tbe Oregonisn
concerning tbe registering question re
ceives tbe following answer:
"The law requires that every voter In
the state (hall register. If a yoter lives
at a great distance from tbe county seat
be can register with a justice of the
peace or a notary public. A book con
taining the registration of all tbe voters
In the county alii be prepared, and from
tbla smaller books will be made, giving
the list of electors In each precinct.
There will be plenty of time for every
voter to get registers'), a the books will
be op n for registration from tbe first
Monday In January, 1'AK), In S p. in.
May 15th. Thera are provisions where
by a person who has ten unable to
register may li allowed to vote, but
they Involve much trouble, and It will
be ailvia.ible for every voter ti register.
Any person who fraudulently registers
more than ore, or under any but hi
true name, or w ho shall Htt-mpt to vole
b personating another, shall le pun

tiary not less than one year nor nure
than three years, or by fine of not less
than 1100 nor more than '.WO, or by

While uiauy of tbe small papers
throughout Eastern Oregon and Wash
ington ate continually endeavoring to
sound the death knell to The Dalles and
give the Impression that it is a doomed
city, tbe largest and moat inllueutial
publications in the state realise just
what the true situation is in regard to
our city. As is its wont, the Portland
Telegram sees matters just as they are,
ami without flattery or undue credit,
sums the situation up In an editorial
which our citiaens will greatly appre
ciate, coming aa it does, from a paper
whose inll.ience is so far renchirg. That
Dulles people already hold the Tele
gram lu great regard Is evidenced by
its large subscription list here, and by
the fact that th midnight train, whic'i
drops it at the "Gateway City," alaays
finds a number of our leading cllirens
waiting to read It before retiring. The
kindly words which it Seaks for us
w hen so many are intent on criticism,
will do much to Intensify this friendly
feeling and gain many friends for tiial
popular j ourr.al. Tho article referred to
"l"nlitiely and fortunately located.
Dalles City has been for nearly half a
century a prominent point in Oregon,
and, notwithstanding some hard knocks
it is today oneof the richest and prettiest
towns in the Pacific Northwest. Prob
ably no other town In tliis region has
done sj large a business In proportion to
population, and In none has a greater
proportion of business men prosiered.
The construction of the O. K. A N.
railway was a bard blow to TheDalli ..
as It Is popular! called ; the removal i
the car shops to Alblua was anotl ;
and on several occasions (Ire has ''
stroyed a considerable portion of the
business district; but through all The
Dalles haa held its own, ami is now one
of the most prosperous towns iu It "
state. This baa been largely due to its
I -cation at the bead of navigation ol th
river, after the completion of tl.e rail
road, ajnd at a point to which a very
large region of country is geographically
tributary. For a hundred miles or
more southward everybody bad to come
to The Dalles to come "to town," ami
do yet ; and that region now ontainsa
great number of farmers as well as of
"The building of the Columbia South
e rn railroad, hicb tome day w ill traverse
the breadth of Oregon, is on the surface
somewhat inimical to tbe business in
terests of The Dalles, as It joins the O.
K. & N. a c msiderable distance above
that city ; and tbe business men of The!
Dalles are planning ways snd means to
retain the trade of the region through
which the railroa I passes. This they
may not lie able to do to quite so great
an extent as they have done heretofore,
buf as th region around Th Ihilles de
velops and fills np, the loss on account
of the bnlldingof the Columbia Southern
wiil be more than mad up.
"there will scarcely be any town
away from the river to rival Th Dalles,
and a bile It is Important for its boeinee
men to be alive and active, yst they
have no great occasion to worry about
the future. The Dalle will be a good,
prosperous, growing town a long as tbe
Columbia flow past it over it sandy
bed, snd s long as the eras grow
green each spring on the thousand bills?
and the grain upon the extended
prairies, by which it is surrounded."
After all that has been said and the
trouble which has arisen from the sale
of lienor to Indiana, no sflort seems to
le put forth tc stop It, and nearly every
day arrests are made of drunken and
qnarrel'ome Indians. Last night two
old offenders, Jim Walser and bis son,
John, made their appearanc I at Skibbe's
bar, In an intoxicated condition and de
manded liquor. The bartender re
fused and a row ensued, when the young
fellow drew a wicked looking knife. The
bartender grabbed a piece ol garden hose
lying near and strnck the fellow In the
face, when some nne near gave needed
asiistance. Nighlwstchman Phlrmsn
