Spearman's Camp, Jan. 28. After

night, but the British outposts did not
This morning at daybreak the Boers
opened a stiff fire. The British stood
to the guns where they had slept and
an engagement was renewed vigor
ously. The field artillery poured shrap
nel into the enemy's trenches.
A rumor that Ladysralth had been
relieved enlivened the British, who
sent up a ringing cheer. This was
taken for an advance. The first kopje
was carried at the point of the bayonet,
and the Boeri retreated to the next
kopje, which, like most others, was
strewn with immense boulders, sur
mounted by mounds on the summit.
The British advanced steadily'and
the Boers' relaxed sightly. The latter
did not show such tenacity as pre
viously. Their Nordenfeldts fired at
long intervals, and their cannon fired
but seldom. Apparently the Boert
were short of ammunition. All day
the roar of tnuBkeiry fire continued.
The British took three Boer positions
on the mountain and found shelter be
hind the boulders.

WALL OF GOLD ORE.
Thouaanda Upon Thousand of Torn
Prairie City, Jan. 28. What is in
some respects the most phenomenal
gold find in Eastern Oregon, is 1
miles south of Prairie City, in Grant
county. The width of the ledge is 600
feet, and the walls are broken away for
a distance of more than 8,000 feet,
leaving the ore exposed 150 to 200 feet
in the air. It is said that nowhere in
the world has such a body of ore been
found, standing, as this does, where no
tunneling is necessary. The value of
the ore runs from $3 to $63 per ton in
gold, and it is free milling. Thousands
upon thousands of tons of ore, unin
cumbered by mountains of dirt and
valueless rock, stand uncovered.

HOPES OF TRANSVAALERS,
Getting tfaed to War and nave Ceased
to Mind It.
New York, Jan. 22. An idea of the
high hopes entertained in tne Trans
vaal republio of th9 outcome of the
war with Great Britain is given in a
letter written by E. Houthakkor, as
sistant stationmaater at Johannesburg,
to his sister in Brooklyn. The letter
was sent in November by way of Lo
renzo Marques. The letter says in
"We are getting usod to it a bit now.
Since October 15 no more letters
reached us from beyond the Transvaal.
A solitary cable dispatch manages to
come through occasionally, but then it
is a week old. At first I still main
tained correspondence with Cape Town,
but that is no more possible now. The
Boers are scoring an enormous success,
and they have already conquered the
biggest part of Natal. Thoy are push
ing already into Cape Colony, whjre
they are joined by the burghers. Kim
berley is likewise completely surround
ed, as well as Mafeking, while in the
northern part of tho Transvaal the
Boers are already beyond our bound
aries. On every side the British are
getting a good thrashing.
"The internal arrangements bore are
excellent. All the English have left
the country. Order is beautifully
maintained. The Boers still remaining
may be seen daily leaving for their

been drafted into a special constabu

P. M. With the exception of 10
mines, which are being worked by the
government, all the mines on the rand
are shut down.
"Up to the present 1,600 English
are prisoners, among whom are 50 offi
cers, and 6,000 are slain. Our loss does
not amount to 200, including the dead
and wounded. It sounds like a mira

come out ultimate conqueror, but as
things look now the bughers stand a
good chance. No fighting has ocourred
in their own country. The supply of
food is plentiful. The English sol

der easily. Already two of their gen
erals are dead. Cape Colony will re

see me having changed thus, but that
could not be otherwise, after having
witnessed everything. It is now clear
that Chamberlain's sole aim has been
for three years to make war against the
Transvaal and obtain possession of its
territory. ' '
Taqul Nation to Make a Last Stand.
Chicago, Jan. 20. A special to the
Record from El Paso, Tex., says:
"The Yaqui Indians of Sonora, the
only race in all Mexico that was able
to survive the Spanish invasion . and
preserve its individuality, are making
their last stand against the Mexican
government. Thus far it seems the
Mexican soldiers have been found in
adequate to cope with the Yaquis.
A proclamation has been issued by
the ruler of the Yaqui nation, ad
dressed to "The American People,"
and in part is as follows:
"The Yaqui nation has begun its
struggle for independence. It will no
longer tolerate the Mexican army in
Sonora. The nation has established
a provisional government, the offices of
which are at Babispe. In the event
of the success of the Yaqui people over
the Mexicans, no foreigners except na
tive born Americans will bellowed in
Sonora for several years. The property
and persons of Americans in Sonora
will be protected by the Yaquis in

that $5,000,000 may be expended, and
"In the near future more than a
million dollars' worth of ties and lum
ber will be shipped from Puget sound
points to Hawaii for the projected
roads. Plans already perfected call
for the construction of some 810 miles
of electrio lines. Most of the road
will be in and around Honolulu an
elsewhere on Oahu island. Ferryboats
will be run between the termini of
these roads and the various islands."
American Soldier Attempted to Kill Otla
Chicago, Jan. 22. A special to the

in the following dispatch:
"Manila, Jan. 24. Major Johnson,
commanding a battalion of the Forty
sixth infantry, General Wheaton's bri

men and six horses.
"He advanced again at 5 P. M.,
and, finding the enemy strongly en

Batangas for assistance. Three com
panies of Muir's battalion of the Thirty
eighth infantry were sent to Taal, the
iusurgent headquarters. Johnson drove
the enemy through Lemeri on to Taal,
where he attacked the southern portion
of the city and Muir the northern por

Professor Herron, of Iowa, on the Efloot
New York, Jan. 24. George D.
Herron, formerly a professor in Iowa
college, who is on his way to Russia to
visit Count Tolstoi, said in a lecture
last night before the Social Reform
Club that what Protestant Christen
doni termed religious authority was es
aontially a monopoly.
"There is no difference," he said,
"between the oil combination that says
'Pay unto me so much tribute, or else
go without oil,' and that of the church
that says 'Whorship as I say or be
damned.' It is exactly the same prin
ciple; that which lies back of ths
Standard Oil combination and the
"Socialism has come to us not as an
economic change, but it stands for a
new spirit and a new world. From the
various forms of individualism, through
capitalism and the various forms of dis
tribution, from what a man is sup
posed to earn and what he really needs,
we must finally reach that stag j where
human need is the only recognized coin
of the realm for a decent society. The
central idea of socialism is that of every
human being an equal inheritor of
worldly benefits. And in this day all
things objective and subjective are
tending toward the socialistic idea.
"One of the grave questions is the
effect socialism will have on religion.
What will be the effect on the general
mental attitude in human life if social
ism should predominate? What will
be the effect of the creeds and the dog
mas, the gods and the temples? The
effect of socialistic idea possessing the
world would change the whole atti
tude of human life toward the future.
Protestantism stands by, menacing
the integrity of the human soul. The
element of fear has been dominant in
man for centuries. They are afraid of
the gods they worship, and mnst propi
tiate them. They must sacrifice to
their unknown gods more fruits of one
kind of monopoly or another; perhaps
by founding universities or theological
"If we really had democracy if it
were a fact instead of dogma in the
state and industry, we could not escape
democracy in ethics. No human being
has the right to impose ethical or relig
ious authority on another human be
ing. All imposed authority is essen
tially atheistio. The man who seeks
to coerce another into accepting his
views is atheistio and cannot believe in
a God. What you call religious au
thority is essentially a monopoly.
"It is too late to reform society in
Amerioa. It is no longer a question
whether you will have social revolu
tion or not. it is simply a question of
what kind of a revolution you are go
ing to have. A revolution yon are sure
to have. Socialism is the only living
religion, the only programme of faith
that is offered at the present time."

Spearman's Camp, Jan. 24. Early
Sunday morning General Warren com
menced a flanking movement on the ex
treme left of the Boer position. The
Infantry advanced at 6 o'clock in the
morning along the irregular sides of
Tabamyama mountain, which ends at
-pionkop. The artillery positions were
,-ehind and on the plain. The British

kopje, on which the Boers were concen
trated, concealed behind immense boul
Jers strewn thickly over the hill.
The artillery opened the attack, and
the batteries worked continuously,
pouring tons of shrapnel among the
Boers, who devoted their attenton to
musketry firing on the British infantry.

the earth, caused it to become heavy
