Seven Union Men Discharged and
Men Go Out in Numbers,
Boston, Mass., March 10. What
may prove the biggest strike in Bos
ton, was inaugurated this morning,
when the teamsters, freight handlers,
freight clerks and longshoremen to
the number of several thousand, re
fused to go to work. It is not only ex
pected that fully 10,000 will be direct
ly involved here, but that the strike
will extend to other New England

British ambassador, Pauncefote, took
toward the United States before the
Spanish-American war. The state
ment made by the Russian foreign of
fice, which was forwarded to the state
department by the American ambas
sador at St. Petersburg, charges, as

fote, previous to the opening of the
war, attempted to induce the powers
to express disapproval of the policy
of the United States.

vention is attended by representative

ter, Scranton, Philadelphia and other
cities of the state. Among other
things the federation purposes to
give its early attention to the quK
tions of child labor and sweat shops.

London, March 10. General Delary
has defeated and captured General
Methuen. Four guns fell into the'
hands of the Boers. London is wild
over the sudden news of Mothuen's
Read In House of Commons.
The news of the terrible reverse
to the British arms in South Africa
was read in the house of commons
today. General Methuen's entire
force of 1200 men were taken and Me
thuen seriously injured. The an
nouncement created intense excite
ment in the house. The bad news
came in a dispatch from Lord Kitche
ner, who says: "I greatly regret to
send you the bad news about General
Methuen, with 900 mounted men, un
der Major Paris, and 300 infantry
four guns and pompom. He had start
ed from Wynburg to Lichtenburg, and
was to meet Greenfield, with 1300
mounted troops, but on Friday morn
ing early he was attacked by General
Delarey between Twebesch and
Pamtekniil. The Boers charged on
three sides. Five hundred and fifty
troops have come in at Maribogo.
"They were pursued for four miles.
They report Methuen, Paris and men.
guns and baggage captured. Methu
en, when last seen, was a prisoner.
I have no further details. I suggest
you delay publication until definite
Lord Kitchener, in a second dis
patch sent yesterday, says: "Paris,
with the remainder of his men, lias
arrived at Krasihan and reports his
column was moving in two columns,
those with ox-wagons moving an hour
ahead of those with mules. The Boers
attacked them after dawn. The
mules stampeded and all the mules
and wagons, with a terrible mixture of
mounted men, rushed past the ox wag
ons. All efforts to check them were
Methuen Shot in Thigh.
General Paris collected 400 men,
after the first rout, and after a gallant
but useless defense, the enemy rush
ed thorn. General Methuen was
wounded in the thigh. Paris surren
dered at 10 o'clock in the morning,
after all hope had vanished.
The Killed and Captured.
Three officers and 28 men were kill
ed, aud five officers and 72 men wore
wounded. Two hundred men are miss
ins. besides those captured.
Sympathy for Methuen.
London, March 10. After reading
the bad news, Secretary Brodorick
added a word of apology for the de
feated British general, Methuen. He
said: "He has been conducting oper
ation for two years in a difficult
country. His failure to relieve Kim
berly did not reflect to his discredit."
In the house of lords the under sec
retary of war dramatically read the
telegrams. Earl Roberts, commander
in-chief of the army, made a .speech
eulogizing "Methuen's success
throughout Hip war."
The scene of the battle was in the
southern part of the Transvaal in tho
vicinity of Mafeking. Methuen has
long been credited with being one of
the best tacticians in tho British
army. Early in the present war he
was given command of a division o
the British army, which started to
the relief of Kimberly and Mafeking.
He met with fair success until he
struck the Modder river, where Cronje
was waiting for him. The battle at
Magersfontein followed, resulting in
tho defeat of the British, with heavy
loss. General Wauchope was killed
in this engagement. General Roberts
then relieved Methuen. It is an open
secrtt that social influence has kept
Methuen in South Africa, while Gen
erals Buller and Gatacre have boon
disgraced for smaller blunders.
