San Franclaco Chinese Want
SAN FRANCISCO. June 5. The attor
neys for the Chinese Six Companies this
afternoon filed with the Clerk of the
United States Circuit Court an applica
tion for an Injunction compelling the
Board of Health of this city, to abandon
the quarantine which it has Imposed upon
the Chinatown district. The application
will be heard in open court tomorrow.
The petition is filed in the name of Jew
Ho. and recites the facts leading up to
the quarantine. It sets forth that 10,00)
persons are restrained of their liberty,
but that residents of the district other
than Chinese are not affected by the quar
antine. The petitioner denies that there
is any plague within the quarantine
quarter, or that there has been any per
son In the district afflicted with the dis
ease. Assuming that there may have
been one or two isolated cases, the peti
tioner asserts that the quarantine should
apply only to tnose Individual placet
sonable to quarantine the entire China- I
1 Inasmuch as the complaint denies the
t existence of the plague absolutely, it Is
' probable that the Health Board. In Its an-
swer. will be compelled to make some
attempt to prove the statements hereto
fore made regarding its beJef In the pres
ence of the disease in Chinatown.

The Washington Star, Independent,
"Republican success in Oregon, though
expected, will hearten the Administration
and Its friends to a considerable degree.
In the first place, the battle was fought
on National issues. It was - the gold
standard against free silver.
It was ex-
nanslon as an accomplished lact, wnn
all tha obligations that go with it, against
the policy of surrender and retreat but
slightly dlsguisert unaer a sounaing pro
test against Imperialism. It was prosper-
t30Rity, so patent that all had felt it and
Ben It, against tne ecnoes or. calamity oi
four yrars ago. In a word, It was the
St- Louis platform brought up to date
against the Chicago platform brought up
to date. In the second place, the Brjan-
ltes fought under the banner of Fusion,
s"116 r,esun wnw migni oe expecieu in
November from a similar "co-operation on
a National scale. It was not denied that
slnKle-handed the Democrats would be
powerless. It was conceded that the Pop
ulists were not as strong as formerly, but
It was' stoutly maintained that It was
still, possible for Fusion to carry the 4ay,
as against an explicit Indorsement of the
Administration such as the Republicans
had written. Nor should It be forgotten
that Mr. Bryan visited the state in per
son "and made a number of speeches. As
an entertainer, Mr. Bryan ranks high; as
vote-catcher he is by no means so ef-
"But While Oregon Is a heartener for the
Republlcans.-the result there should not
fln them with too great confidence for
November. There is a battle ahead which
promises to call for all the men they
can muster and all the union of effort they
, can produce. The material Interests of
Oregon, as a Pacific Slope State, are so
, identified with the Republican policy of
expansion, commercial and territorial, in

LONDON, June 5. midnight. Lord Rob
erts reports to the War Office that tha
Thirteenth Battalion of the Imperial Yeo
manry (Irish) was "overwhelmed by tha
Boers at Lindley." Lord Methuen mada
a "magnificent march to their rescue,"
but was too late. Following is the txt
of the dispatch from. Lord Roberts an
nouncing the disaster:
"Pretoria Station, June 5, 12:55 P. M. I
regret to report thai the Thirteenth Im
perial Yeomanry had to surrender to a
superior force of the enemy on May 3L,
near Lindley. On receiving Information
of the battalion being attacked, I ordered
Methuen to proceed with all speed to Its
assistance. Methuen was then on tha
march, on the Hellbron side of Kroonstad.
and half an hour after the receipt of my
telegram on June 1 he started off. By 10
A. M. of the following day he had marched
44 miles In 25 hours, but he was too lata
to rescue Colonel Sprage's Yeomanry. Me
thuen attacked the Boers, who were be
tween 2000 and 3000 strong, and after a
running fight of five hours, completely
routed the enemy.
"It is a very regrettable circumstance,
but I trust It will not be very long before
the Irish Yeomanry are released from

The dispatches of Lord Roberts, telling
of the incidents before the surrendering
of the capital by three civilians, standi
alone, as the correspondents with him,
have not had their turn at the wires.
Lord Robertsf postscript, announcing tha
loss of the Yeomanry Battalion, came too

ing no weight to speak of in the results.
The battalion numbered between 400 and
General Botha ana most of his men got
away from Pretoria. This is inferred
from Lord Roberts' message, but the pre
sumption Is that the Boer Commandant
General cannot escape the British dispo
sitions without a fight.
