SURPRISED BY BOERS.
Victoria Mounted Rifles Overcome By Su
London, June 18. Lord Kitchenur
has cabled from Pretoria under today's
late as follows:
Near Wclmansrust, 20 miles north
ol Middleburg, 250 Victoria mounted
rifles from General Houston's com
mand wero surprised in camp at
?teenkoolspruit by a superior force of
Boers at 7:30 p. m. June 12. The
;nemy crept up to within short range
and poured a deadly fire into the
camp, killing two officers and 1(1 men
and wounding four ollicers and 38
men, of whom 28 were only slightly
wounded. Only two officers and 50
men escaped, to General Houston's
lamp. Tho remainder were taken
prisoners and released. Two pom-
pos were captured by the enemy.
Full details have not yet been re
The serious reverse which Lord
Kitchener reports is the first accident
of the kind that has happened to the
Australian contingent, and it is sup
posed to be due to neglect of proper
picketing. Although it is offset by
the defeat inflicted upon Dewet, the
loss of the guns is regarded as a serious
matter, which will encourage the
Boers to continue the struggle.
More or less fanciful accounts are
published on the continent of alleged
peace negotiations, but there is
nothing in them and nothing has
come of the interview between Mr.
Botha and Mr. Krtiger, beyond re
vealing the fact that Mr. Kruger will
listen to no proposals unless they are
accompanied with a guarantee of in
dependence of the republics.
The Daily Mail's Capo Town cor
respondent says that Cecil Rhodes,
speaking at Huluwayo Saturday,
predicted that a federation of South
African states would come in three or
four years, but he contended that

JAPAN'S WAR ON RATS.
Energetic Measure Taken to Suppress the
Yokohama, June 1, via Victoria,
B. C. June 18. Much consternation
has been awakened by the escape of a
rat at Tokio. The medical authori
ties of the Imperial university were
jngaged in experimenting on some
rodents in the introduction of plage
bacilli into their veins, when one of
the animals eluded their vigilance,
and as a consequence several have
recently been discovered in the hos
pital infected with the disease. As a
result the war against them has
assumed huge proportions. The
Tokio municipality has voted 30,000
yen, rat traps by the thousand are
distributed among the people, and
a bounty of 5 sen ench is offered for
their capture. With all this evi
dence of consternation there is no
need of fear that the the disease can
gain a foothold in the country in
which such measures for prevention
have been taken. While sporadic
cases appear here and there, they
are instantly isolated, and the spread
of the contagion is rendered practi
cally impossible. The authorities
do not hesitate to adopt the most
drastio measures in each instance,
and as a result the empire is today in
a better sanitary condition than any
other nation in the world.
The cabinet muddle is not only
still unsettled, but it beccmes every
day more complicated and hopeless of
solution. The source of trouble,
while dignified as a strife between
the principle of a party niinsitry
and that of an independent cabinet,
responsible only to the sovereign, is
almost lost sight of in the pettiness
of the political squabbles which have
come to the surface, making it im
possible for any statesman without
complete loss of self-respect, to un
dertake the task of forming a minis
try. STRIKE OF TRACKMEN.
Employes of the Canadian Pacific will Go

Vancouver, B. C, June 18. All of

that the granting of this demand

BOERS GAINING STRENGTH.
Taking On Many Recruits From Dutch Dist

New Yoric, June 19. The situa

says the Tribunes' London corres
pondent. It is believed that the
Boers are gaining many recruits from
the Dutch districts of Cape Colony,
and in spite of Mr. Chamlierlain's
calm assertion that the embers of

much as if they had burst into names.
