Westward Movement of the Dutch From the
Vryburg Dlitricl Dewet In South,
eastern Orange River Colony.
London, Dec. 20, Tho latest dig
patches from fc'outh Africa show that
I Lord Kitchener has succeeded in hold
, Ing tho Boors in check. Ho has not
yet boen aucccfsful in oxpolling them
from Capo Colony, while different
j cornmandoos continue to display aston-
idling activity over an immensely wido
1 Hold.
I It is questionable whether his proc
lamation will havo much effect until
Goneral Dowet Is captured. The Boers
are likely to regard it as a sign of
; weakness nud to have a wholesomo
', dread of vengeanco if thoy surrender.
1 Tho proclamation is approved by tho
party at homo that favors conciliatory
terms to tho Boers as a step in tbo
right direction.
I Queen Victoria, it is said, has ap
proved the proposal to institute a new
order of knighthood to reward officers
who havo eorved in South Africa.
Tho order will probably be called the
Star of Africa.
A dispatch from Vryburg, dated De

The dispatch suggests that they wero

cheerful reports come, too, from "West-
orn jouuors, wno liavo been caned on
for reassorting orders, and who report
collections good. Quietness in whole
sale lines is usual nt this poriod, but
it is to bo noted that specially gocxl
advices come from tho iron and steel,

and confectionery trades, whilo a dis
tinctly cheerful tono is found in shoes,

Chinese and Japanese Want Pay for Property
Destroyed During Bubonic Plague.
Washington, Deo. 29. It is expect
fcd that Governor Cole, ot Hawaii, will
Inako a recommendation to the Hawaii
n legislature, which meets in Febru
ary, for the settlement of tho claims of
Chinese and Japanese growing out of
tho destruction of their property at
Honolulu at the time of the bubonio
plague outbreak. It appears that the
Chinese claims aro leas than was at
first estimated, and that tho total of
the Chinese and Japanese claims are,
approximately, $1,800,000. Tbo Chi
nese government has not been in a
condition, of late, to exert pressure in
behalf of the claims of its citizens, but
the Japanese authorities have been ac
tively lookiug out for tho losses sus
tained by their countrymen, and now
seem to bo in n fair war of securing
partial remuneration. Governor Dole
suggested n short time ugo that tho
matter be refoired to tho Hawaiian
legislature, and this was approved by
the officials horo as tho beat means of
adjusting the matter. There appears
to be little doubt that the legislature
