Iosiw!., Jan 24, 2:C0 a. m. Contrary
to the announcement, maile shortly be
fore midnlulit by tlie war ofllce that
nothing further wouM be ImwA before
Wednemlay forenoon, the following dia
patch from (JHtieral Iluller, dated Hfieai
tnan'a January 23,0:50 p. m , liai JuHt
l)Ofn KKted :
"Tarren holda the monition be gaineJ
two day ago. In front of him, at about
1400 yardi, in the enemy's prjultion,
weat of Hplonkop. It la on higher
ground than Warren'a position, bo it is
Impoaisible to e into it properly.
"It can be approached only over bare
ojien alopes, and the ridgea held by War
ren are so steep that guns cannot
be placed on them. But we are shelling
the enemy' portion with howitzer, and
field artillery, placed on lower ground
"The enemy ia replying with Creuaot
and other artillery. In thin duel, the
advantage rents with as, as we appear to
be re irrhing hi trenches, and his ar
tlllery fire la not canning us much loss.
"An attempt will be made to seize
Splonkop, the salient of which forms the
enemy's position facing Trichard's and
which divides it from the position facing
Potgieter's drift. It has considerable
command overall the enemy's entrench
ments. rreparlnf for Nljht Attack,
General Uuller's great turning move
mont of which so much was expected,
has come in a standstill. Ilia carefully
worded message to the war office telling
this, after a silence ot two days, reads
like an apology and an explxnation.
General Warren holds the ridges, but
the mercy's positions are higher. The
British artillery is playing on the Boer
positions and the Boers are replying.
The British Infantry is separated by
only 1 mo yards from the enemy, but sn
approach to the steep elopes, across the
bare 0en, would expose the British to a
fatal rifle fire.
General Butler's plans have reached
, their development, lie declines to send
his Infantry across this cone againwt for.
' unliable petitions by daylight, and dis
closed his purpose to assault the Spion
kop heights during tho night. This ap
pears to be the key to the Boer defenses.
If he takes it and thus commands the
adjacent country, an important and pos
sibly decisive step will be accomplixhed.
It seems that General Butler's die
patch reach the war office rather early in
the night and was the subject of a pro
longed conference betwran Ixrd Lands
downe, Mr. Balfour and several staff
officials. A determination appears to
have been reached not to give out the
message during the night, but towards
two a. in., copies of the dispatch were
made for dintribntion among the news
paper olHcos. These arrived too late for
The Morning Post and the Standard
touch lightly upon the unpleasant feat
ures of the dispatch, and take hope from
the projected night attack, but, altogether
considered.the dispatch looks like prepa
ration for worse news,
Parliament will meet in five days.
The cabinet has been hoping for one
rallying British success to cheer the
country and to command generous sup
port for fresh revenue measures. Among
these will be be probably an increase of
the income tax to a ehilling on the
pound, but this would only provide the
cost of Ave weeks' hostilities. The
duties on tobacco, alcohol, tea and coffee
are likely to be raised. The cabinet will
meet at the end of the week and discuss
Political considerations, both foreign
and domestic, press upon the military
authorities the necessity of speedily ac
complinhing something. These authori
ties have been persuading General Biiller
to attempt his great operation with or
without adequate preparation. This
impression, whether true or not, is
Apparently, Lord Roberts has nothing
whatever to do with General Buller's op
eration. General Buller and the
war office communicate with each other
direct. Buller's scheme was conceived
before Lord Roberts arrived at Cape
Town, and its execution was begun on
the day he landed. The fact that the
judgment of Lord Roberts has not been
brought to bear upon the movemeLt
does not add to public confidence.
From Vienna comes the statement that
the idea of the intervention of European
powers is gaining adherents in influential

Londo.m, Jan. 21. The war offliM has
just issued the following dispatch, from
Spearman's camp, dated January 25,
12:10 a. m.:
"General Warren's troops last nlht
occupied Splonkop, surprising the small
garrison, who fled.
"It has been held by ns all day,
though we were heavily atUcked, espe
cially by a yery annoying shell fire.
"I fear our casualties are considerable,
and I have to inform you, with regret,
that General Woodgate was dangerously
"General Warren is of the opinion
that he has rendered the enemy's posi
tion untenable. The men are splendid.'
Interest in republican politics is chiefly
centered In the spirited contest now un
der way for the congressional nomina
tion In the first district. Eiirht promi
nent republicans are mentioned In con
nection with the nomination, and all are
putt ng np a clean fight within party
ines. Each hai strong following. State
Senator George C. Brownell has Clacka
mas county without doubt. He has
canvassed the field thoroughly, and has
his county so well in band that the
Tongue men have but faint hope of
wresting it from him.
Claud Gatch will go into the conven
tion with the solid backing of Marion
county. Mr. Gatch is one of the most
popular republicans In Oregon. He Is
an ex-mayor of Salem. In the sensa
tional contest of 1691 he received com
plimentary votes for United States
Linn county's candidate is ex-Circuit
Judge II. II. Hewitt, of Albany. Judge
Hewitt is one of the best-known jurists in
the state. He was defeated for re-election
in 1898 because the republicans of his
district di I not arrange the ballot in a
way that would give him the full vote of
his party. This was an accident, and
one which the republicans of bis district
have since ha 1 reason to regret.
Benton county presents State Senator
John D. Daly, of Curvallis. Few repub
licane are better known than Senator
Daly. He was a stanch Djlph sut porter
in the legislature ot 1895. He can safely
count on the delegation from Lincoln
county as wMl s thtt of Benton.
A. C. Woodcock, of Eugene, has
strong following, an I his friends are nr
ing him to enter the lists as Lane
Robert G. Smith, ot Grant's Pass,
will he the candiJato of Josephine county.
Mr. Smith was a member of the legisla
ture of 1895. He B'ood by Senator Dolph
to the last. Speaking of Mr. Smith's
chances, William Huntley Hampton, of
Lelaud, who was the republfcan nomi
nee for the legislature in Josephine
county two years ago, said yesterday :
"Mr. Smith will hive the Josephine del
egation behind him. He is an able, ac
tive man, and he would honor the first
district if it should send him to congress."
Southern Oregon is pushing Hon. E.
V. Carter, of Ashland, to the front for
the nomination. Mr. Carter was speak
er of the house at the special session in
1898, and at the regular session in 1899.
His friends say that he can go into the
convention with the support of the dele
gations from Jackson, Klamath, Lake,
Coos and Curry counties. Mr. Carter
was in town yesterday, and was seen at
the Imperial hotel. Asked about the
congresafonal nomination, he said it was
an honor to which any republican might
aspire. He said he knew that his friends
were urging his name, and that he
greatly appreciated their interest in his
"Southern Oregon wants Mr. Carter,"
said A. Y. Beach, one of the owners of
the Lakeview Examiner. "We know
him as a broad man. He would honor
the first district tn congress, and we aro
determined to do everything possible to
bring about his nomination. Southern
Oregon has large interests that need at
tention, and we are entitled to represen
tation In congress."
Representative Tongue realizes that he
has a stiff fight on hand, and is working
hard to hold his forces together. He Is
sure of Washington county, his home;
but he knows that he will have to rustle
to get votes in thej other counties, Sen
ator McBride's recommendation of Ira
g. Smith, of Monmouth, is a move to
keep Polk county in line for Mr. Tongue.
Mr. Smith was a member of the legisla
ture of 1895. Though he voted. for Sena-
Dolph to the end, the Dolph managers re
garded him as one who was ever ready
to flop, He was not disconcerted when
Senator Djlpb went down to de'eat.
His recommendation for the Alaska col-
lectorship comes, after five years, as a
reward for the uncertain state of mind
in which he kept himself for 40 days and
nights at Salem in January and February '
It is a battle royal, and the best mam
will win, and the others congratulate
him and work for his electron. Each of
Mr. Tongue's opponents has hit own
county, but no one not even Mr.
Tongue has the district. The opposition
candidates know that the only way for
one of their number to win is to break
op Tongue's strength and get him out of
the war. The plan was projected many
times when Binger Hermann was ia
congress, but it did not succeed until Mr.
Tongue won the prize at Albany in 1899.
Mr. Tongue has the same kind of a light
on hand this year that Hermann had
four years ago.
Within a few days Chairman George
A. Steel will call a meeting of the repub
lican state central committee for the pur
pose of naming the time and place of
holding the state convention. There
seems to be no doubt that the conven
tion will be held in Portland, and that
the date will be early in April. Chair
man Steel said yesterday that the only-
business that will come before the com
mittee will be in relation to the holding
the convention and the apportion
ment for representation. Oregonian.

In the matter of the report of viewers)
on the petition ot William Barlow, et al,
for a county roai. In the matter of
the report of E. B. Miller, Henry Brush
and Mr. Kleve, appointed viewers at
last term of board to view and locate a
county road ei tinted in Clackamas
county, beginning at the Clackamas

corner of the property of John Frv, Mrs.
W. W. Irwin, estate of Henry Will, de
ceased, and the S. 1. Co. to intersection
of Barlow and Caaby road at Barlow;
said proposed road to be 40 feet in width
the entire length. Above proposed route
will shorten distance between Barlow
and the south line of Clackamas county;
about two miles is all graded and ready
to travel, where it follows the old stage
road and can be opened the entire dis
tance with very little or any expense,
and will be a great b nefit to the pt ople of
this section and the traveling public, ia
general. Said viewers filed their report
showing that they had met on the day
named in the notice served upon them,
and were duly sworn by subscribing to a
written oath of office administered by
John W. Meldrum, deputy county sur
veyor, after which they proceeded to the
designated place, and did view and cause
caid road to be surveyed by said deputy
county surveyor, the above-described
road. They also filed the field notes and
