WllE MORNING ASTOK1AN. SATURDAY. NOVEMKEtt 4, 1890.
MOST MOMENTOUS WAR
SINCE AMERICAN REVOLT
South African Situation Still Causes the
Deepest Concern in England.
LADYSMITH IS LIKELY TO FALL
General Joutert May Capture Pieterrnaritzturg Also Before
General Boiler an Arrive Native Up
NEW TORK. Nov. 1 A dispatch to Uom owinj to th Boer fucwea. whll
th World from London says:
General Jouberfs movement to cut
off General Whtt at Ladysmlih from
Colenso Is being- carried out, and it Is
probable that Pietermaritiburs;, the
capital of Natal, will fall Into General
Jouberfs hands before General Buller
and reinforcements can arrive.
The South African situation is aaln
causinr the deepest alarm. The silence
of the war office, which received to
day several dltpatchea from Cape
Town and Durban, the hotdlnff back of
the Ust of casualties at Ladysmith and.
finally, the announcement of the moblll
tation of the second army corps on the
tenth of this month, all combine to show
that the position of British power In
South Africa is on of greatest peril.
The World correspondent learns that
the Dutch rising- In Northern Cape
Colony has assumed menacing propor-J
the native unrest all along the Trans
vaal and Orange Free State borders
has become more menacing. The na
tives cannot be relied on by either side
but probably will fight for their own
With sedition spreading amorg the
Cape and Natal Dutch, the natives
waiting to jump In on their own ac
count, and General White's force be
leaguered in Ladysmtth, this war has
suddenly become the Most momentous
til England In which she has engaged
since the American revolution.
Mr. Chamberlain, who had proposed
to take his ease at his country seat
near Birmingham, while the Transvaal
was being conquered, has found it nec
essary to come to town, and la In con
stant communication with Sir Alfred
Mllner, the British high commissioner
in South Africa.
T!h plan, as It will be published, will
be slightly different from that put out
by the Philadelphia committee a fw
months ago, having been somewhat
modified In the Interests of the holders
of Junior securities.
Present bondholders will not get IS
per cent In new 4 per oeut bonds, as at
first proposed, but will receive that
amount of new S per cent bonds, the
Interest In the proposed Issue having
been cut down. Bondholders will also
reoWve W pvr cent In new preferred, as
I'nJer the new plan, the company's
terminal charges will be cut down from
$:;0,000. as at present, to at least $150,000
by scaling the Interest on terminal
binds. The reurgunUera have received
satisfactory assurances from Union Ta
clftc and Chicago A Alton controll, rs
that these roads will give the Pitts
burg and Gulf a great deal more busi
ness than tt ever received from them
There will aim be changes in the pro-
posed voting trust. The Philadelphia
reorganisation committee will stand as
at present, but In the voting trust that
will control the company's affairs. Pres
ident Jame Stillman of the National
City bank and President Louis Fit leer
aid of the. Mercantile Trust Company
will take the place reserved for Presi
dent A. E. Stlllmell and another mem
ber of the Philadelphia committee who
resides In Holland.
Otherwise the new plan will be mush
the same as the old. It will have the
suport of the combined committee, and
no new opposition Is anticipated. With
the acceptance of the plan, all the con
test over the Kansas City, Pittsburg A
Gulf reorganization, will be settled.
