London, April 2. A rumor of tie re
capture by the British of seven guns
taken from Colonel Lroad wood's force,
based on a dispatch to the Chronicle from
Bloemfontein, which is in al! probability
correct, fails to compensate London for
tbe severe etoca experienced by a bamil
hating defeat sustained within a few
miles of tbe headquarters of the British
army of occupation.
Tbe public is p&icfuliy surprised to
learn after ail tbat British officers of high
position can etLi neglect precautions
which the veriest tyro might be expect
ed to observe, and blunder into traps
which observance of elementary military
roleB would Lave revealed. There is no
attempt here to minimize the discredit-
ableness of the whole affair, to far es tbe
British arc concerned, or detract from
the dexterity of the Boers, who. were ap
parently commanded by General Da
Tbe tactics of the burghers were evi
dently excellently conceived, and boldly
carried oat, anl unlees the reinforce
ments sent by Ko'. erte h .va turned the
tide, and Vecaptured the prisoners,
couple of hundred men from two crack
corps of tbe Household Cavalry and the j
Tenth Hussars are now on their way to
swell the growing deposit of British pris
ioers at Pretoria.
President Kruger is said to have prom
ised to reoccopy Bloemfontein this week,
and the stubborn burghers seem to be
closing around the place in each force as
promises V be troublesome, especially
when it is realized that the activity of a
strong Boer force in tbe vicinity of l'aar
debarg has already interrupted uirect
comoftDieation between Roberts and
But for tbe over helming numbers a
tbe disposal of Roberts, tbe eituation
would justly cause Great Britain anxiety.
As it is, the nation ia beginning to real
ize, from tbe ntture of thi guerilla
warfare, that it is liable to em
barrass tbe future movement of British
rA?.iu dispatch from Bloemfoute-in
this morning says that the water supply
of tbe place has been cut off. This is a
na? ual sequence of tho Boer success at
the water works. But the
New Yobk, April 12. A elispatch
the Tribune from London says:
"Toe wonderful run of success, which
so long attended the movemepts of the
British army in South Africa, was broken
on Saturday, whea Colonel Broadaood's
troops walked into a Boer ambush east of
Bloemfontein. The loss of guns is not ia
itself a very serious matter, and, iudeeJ,
the mishap is not of intrinsic military
importance, but its moral effect may be
considerable. Many Boers who had
been disheartened by successive defeats
will now recover their spirits and tight
with renewed vigor.
It is not by any means clear how tbe
affair happened, bnt probably when
Commandant Oliver's- force retreated
through Ladybrand, a strong detach
ment was left there to watch tbe British
flank, and this detachment has scored a
success. Of course, the Boers may yet
be prevented from carrying off the cap
tured guns and wagons, but .unless Gen
eral Colvilleican delay them, they will
make goal their retreat. Oaing, no
doubt, to the fact that tbe action at Kt-
ree.Kloof, north of Glen, laet Thursday,
was not of great importance, the t mili
tary censor has dealt ligh t'y with the
copy of tbe vat ions war correspondents
in telegraphing it.
General Roberta evidently desired to
bring aboit the em-render of tbe whole
force of Boers, but ther succeeded ia get
ting away over the flat country with all
thsir guns aod wagons. Tue escape of
tbe Boers is attributed by the Standard's
correpondent to the deiay of the cavalry
in completing the encircling movement,"!
General French being under the impres
sion tbat the Boers bad already gone.
On tbe whole, it is doubtful whether tbe
results of tbe operation were commensur
ate with the loss of li.'e it entailed.
Although the opinion is freely express
ed in official circles that Mafeking is
quite safe, tbe uncertainty as to the state
of the food supply in tbe beleagured
town causes great anxiety here. The
impression prevails in many quarters
tbat a colnmn has crossed the Vaal and
is marching northward to the relief of
the garrison, but no official information
has been received to that effect. Tbe
most northerly poir.t that any Britreh
force ia known to have reached from too
south is Warrenton, and even the War
Office seems to be unaware oi tbe where'
abouts of Colonel Piuraer. In repiy to
a telegram from the Miyor of East Lon
don, General Robert j has Etated that the
relief of Mafeking is engaging bis earnest
Orders have been cabled to the Gov
eminent , of LBelra to allow British
soldiers, stores aud ammunition to pass

graphed by a Mail correspondent in Lis

The easy-going natives and Spaniards

the Philippines have neverjbeen noted
for that disease, but there are more than
100 lepers in tbe Manila Hospital.
Bubonic plague is a visitor to which
istance lends terror. Two months ago
tbe firet case was discovered in Manila.
ince that time there have be?n 200
cases, according to tue estimates oi me
health officers, and at least SO per cent
of them have resulted fatally. Yet there
has been no panic, no families Lave lied
from the city, nor Las the usual routine
of lile in the city been disturbed. The
repressive measures of the health officers
have been comparatively simple, but
have proven remarkably effective, con
sidering conditions they have bad to
fight. Their aim has been to mike tbe
city clean and keep it clean. This is the
last thing the masses of Filipinos and
Chiuamec propose to do unless driven
"Tbey don't understand it, they con
sider it only a form of persecution," ex
plained Surgeon-Major Ira C. D. Brown,
when asked if tbe natives were disposed
to co-operate in this work.
The Filipinos are one of the moat
scrupulous people in the world 'about
personal tlesnliness. Their kuoa ledge
of sautitation, however, was gainel en
tirely from the Spaniards, and is defect
ive. The lower ciaecs ot Chinese are
worse, as the fact that two-thirds of the
plague cases have been among them, al
though tbey number but a small minor-
itv of the population, testifies. White
people have escaped altogether.
Manila is practically without sewerage,
aud because of its low level, the 'ott of a
system ol moderu lines would be almost
prohibitive. As ao offset is the charac
ter of the Nip huts, inhabited by most
of the native?, which stand on po-ts
above the ground, free from rats and
Tbe plague is supposed to have begun
in Cavite. Its first visit appeared in
Manila in the walled city only a stone's
throw from the palace, where army head
quarters are, and three persons were
dead before tbe Lature of their disease
was suspected. Most of the later cases
have been in the same section of the
walled city or in the Chinese quarter,
near the water front.
Immediately Surgeon-Major Eiie, tbe
health officer, organized a force of in
spectors to enforce rigid sanitary meas
ures on everybody, and tho pluguo work
was put in charge of Major Brown. It
was necessary to have men who could
speak the language of the people, explain
to them what the inspection meant, aud
direct them bow to keep their premises
clean, so Filipinos had to be cmisted.
The race question created complica
tions immediately. Between Filipinos
aud Chinamen there exists an inveterate
hatred. The Filipino iospectora de
lighted in the chance to squart grudges
against their traditional enemies. They
proceeded to file a batch of warrants for
maintaining nuisances at police head
quarters, and tnoHt of them wore againHt
Chinamen, who proved, ou investigation,
to be the most projniffnnt and It'a t of-
i binding of their race.
The ollic a's have hoped that hea tbe
isiny ason geti fairly under way, with
a few t-ix-ini'h rhowers, it will wash np
the tow a to thoroughly that p ague will
be iaip.-ssi: le. Even at its werst the
surgeons who I. id experience dealing
with yellow fever ia Cuba consider (be
bubonic plague easier to control than its
South American rival. Already the
number of cates weekly reported is decreasing.
