and the Force at Fourteen Streams
Will Advance Simultaneously.
Smaldeel, May 9. It I reported that
the federals are quitting Zind river and
it is variously stated tbat they are re
treating towards the Vaal and are taking
np their position at Boshrand. sooth of
Kroonetadt. A large number of burghers
have come in and delivered their mansers
and horses to the British. They affirm
that there is a hitter quarrel between
Free Stater and Transvaalrs, which is
likely to end in the speedy surrender of
the former. General French ha arrived
London, May 9. Although the British
expected considerable opposition at the
difficult drift of tbe Zind river, the
latest advice from Smaldeel, Orange
Free Stale, ind'eated that tbe federal
are not yet ready to make a determined
attack to stem Lord Roberts' advance.
The latter' front, indeed, is so wide and
overwhelming in numbers that It is
difficult to see how the Boers can help
being ousted out of Virginia Siding, as
they were out of Smaldeel, even if they
elected to give battlo. li.3 same con
sideration would probably affect the
situation at Kroonstadt ; hence the belief
that little opposition will be encountered
south of the Vaal.
Repair to tbe bridge over the Vet
river and the Vaal are expected to re
tard the general march from Smaldeel
and Fourteen Stream for three or four
day, when General Bailer will also be
ready. Tbe general idea is that General

At the annual meeting ot the Primrose
League held in London Tuesday after
noon, in honor of the celebrated prime
minister Dioratli, Lord Salisbury, Eng-
and's present premier, mada a sensa-
ioiial speech. He referred to Ireland.
He used these words which are causing
a commotion in some quartets: There
s no hope that we shall give Ireland
practicnl independence, for we have
earned from the South African war how
a disloyal government can accumulate
rms. The British government know
better than to give this power to a die-
oyal government In Ireland tor a mo
ment. The Irish are erased, and are
a powerless factor In England' politic,
but do not Imagine this efacemenl per.
Lord Salisbury referred to England'
foreign relation and said there were
certain element menacing the empire,
and the peril were slowly accumulating
nd they might reach a point which
would require the government's inott
earnest effort to repel. He have no
lecniity, we have no confidence in the
sympathy of other nation, no confidence
io anything except the efficiency of our
own defence. It would be unwise to
depend ever much on the navy. The
people at home mast put themselves in
condition to defend their borne. Rifle
cluhi should be formed in every district
In England. Then we shall have a force
which will make the chance of our

Soft-Noae Shell I'lereea Armor Mat.
Nsw Yobk, May 10. James W, John
son, member of tbe firm of Isaac G.
Johnsnu & Co., of Spuyten Duyville,
invento-t of the Johnson soft-nose shell,
explained last night how the soft steel
cip enables a projectile to pierce armor
"I think," said Mr. Johnson, "that
the action of the soft steel cap may be
illustrated by a simplo experiment. If
you would try to drive a (ingle nail
through a piece of sheet iron, the nail
would bend. But if you first driye a
nail through a piece ol hardwood it will
penetrate the sheet iron.
"The soft nose, in other words, pre
vents the projectile from glincing off. It
whole force is concentrated at the point.
In one of the tests made at Indian Head,
ae fired a proj-ctile at the armor plate
at an angle of twenty-one degrees. No
sooner had the soft nose touched the
plate than the projectile turned at a
right angle to the plate and penetrated
It. The cap, or toft nose, also act as a
kind of lubricant to the shell."
