BATTLE OF MODDER RlVKlU
The aggressive force and fighting
power of General Melhuen'a army
must have been frightfully impaired
by thj orileals it has endured, says
tbe Spokesman-Review. This force
is advancing to the relief of Kiiuber
!y, which is under siege by the lloers.
It baa fought three tWcc engage
ments, all ot which have beeu pro
claimed as victoiious. Rut the
readiness with which the Boers' army
has rallied after each battle first
after that of Belmont, and again
after that of C.ras Pan fills Loudon
wiih oread misgiving.
After reliiing from the battle of
Gras Pan, the Boers took up a strong
position to the north, at the point
where the railroad from Cape Town
to Kiraberly crosses the Mjdder
river. There the last battle was
fought, and General Methuen reports
that "It was cue of the hardest and
most trying fights in the nunals of
tbe British army." These are word
of terrible significance.
In all tDis fighting the British have
fought at disadvantage. Ther have
ties, and in the presence in many
instances of Lostite natives and
armed Spauiaids, the recotd may
well stand for one of euorusous
energy and effectiveness.
Ex President Cleveland has Joined
the ranks of the expansionists. It
will soon be bard to oiut out any
man in the Democracy sticking to
the conlractionist side who has had
aur standing in the partv except the
few wreckers who belong to the
Bryanile contingent. "Anti-iuiperial-ism"
promises, by the lime the next
election takes place, to bo as dead
as that other Democratic issue of
slavery. Some Democrats saw the
drift against s'avery before it at
tained formidable proportions, and
left their party. There were many
Bourbons like Bryan, however,
among the Democrats of half a
century ajo, ho clung to slavery to
the end, and went down in the
general wreck which overwhelmed
that institution. The flag fullers will
be beaten as badly as were the
slaveryiles, and fewer teats will be
shed for them than were dropicd for
Aguinaldo is pretty bard pressed
these days. He may elude the
troops for a few weeks longer. Pos
sibly he may escape from the island
altogether, and go to Asia or Europe.
The end in any case, however,
be the same. Most of bis army

so thoroughly dispersed that it will

off so quietly that It seemed a veritable
