Sir George Stewart White, commanding
the forces in Natal, and the Boers,
who entered Natal by way of Van
Keenan's Pass. General White, the
Scotsman says, is very sanguine of th*
success of the British movement.

dated at noon Friday, says:
"A strong mobile column under Sil

General Sir Archibald Hunter, proceed

to test the mobility and efficiency of
his forces. All the men are well and
the weather is fine.”
According to dispatches from Lady-
eimth to the Standard and the Daily
Telegraph, dated Thursday, heavy
storms have begun and forage is scacre
on the veldt. General White has 12
guns and the Boers 11.

Big Steam Heating Plant«
Upwards of $600,000 is to be spent
by the Boston capitalists who have pur
chased the plant of the Seattle Steam
Heat & Power Company, and six of
the street railway lines of Seattle, in
the erection of a new and modern power
plant and in the rebuilding and the
distributing system. This part of the
plant will be almost wholly recon
structed, new mains being laid in con
formity with the latest ideas of steam
engineering. This is but thebeginning
of large improvements which will be
made. Plans are now being drawn for
the new building and plant, which will
be finished by January 1, and for the
rebuilding of several of the street car
lines recently purchased.
