People Fled From Vryburg

Troop.—Th. Uiuovitea Mutinied.
London, Oct. 21.—The Pietermaritz
burg correspondent of the Daily Mail,
in a dispatch says:
The brunt of the fighting at Bester’s
Station yesterday was sustained by the
volunteer patrols. The fighting was
brisk. The Boers numbered 2,000.
The volunteers at one moment were in
great peril, being nearly cut off, but
the officers handled tjieir men splen
didly, and the Maxims effectively
stopped the Boers’ rushes. The Boer
showing was wretched. The volun
teers lost their kit, and altogether the
fight was a pretty trying one. The
men were in the saddle three days and
two nights, with hardly a rest. Basu-
to natives were fighting with the Boers.
It is reported that 16 Boers were killed.
London, Oct. 21.—The Cape Town
correspondent of the Daily Mail, tele
graphing tonight, says:
"Vryburg surrendered Sunday. To
night’s dispatches from Kuruman, 10
miles east by south of Vryburg, state I
that the police having withdrawn from
Vryburg, the town surrendered to the
Boers, the inhabitants fleeing in all di
rections, mostly toward Kuruman.
When the police withdrew, the Cape
Boers notified the enemy of the fact,
thus inviting them to take possession.
There was a fearful panic. The Brit
ish are wildly indignant at this scut

Mafeking in force, but were repulsed.
The defenders, seeing the enemy re
treating, pursued them for some dis
tance. Then a feint was made and
they commenced to retire on the town,
allowing themselves to be driven in by
the Boers, who, eager to retrieve their
position, again advanced to the attack
and were drawn over lyddite mines laid

brakemen and switchmen, and the men
expect to tie up the road from end to
end. In the great strike of five years
ago, the conductors held aloof, but they
have been brought into the present
trouble by a recent order requiring
them to pay for bonds covering damages
to trains under their charge. The list
•of grievances given by the men is a
long one, and they claim to have been
finable to secure anything like satisfac
tion from the management. Since last
March grievance committees have been
almost constantly in this city trying to
j-each some agreement with the railway
-officials, but without result.
The Eighth Yacht Trial.
New York, Oct. 21.—Had the wind
held today, the Columbia-Shamrock
isries for the America’s cup would
ave ended in three straight wins for
the defender, and the Irish cup hunter
would have sailed home without the
trofhy, beaten as decisively as any
former candidate, Only the failure of
the wind saved the Shamrock from de-
feat more stinging than on Monday.
Today she was beaten on the run to the
«uter mark 5 minute« and 51 second«
elapsed time, and on the leg home,
which should have been a beat, but
which, owing to a shift of the wind,
was a broad reach, the Columbia sailed
away from her like a witch. When
the race was declared off, about 10
minutes before the expiration of the
time limit, the Columbia was leading
by about three miles. She was then
four miles from the finish. Had the
Tace ended, the Shamrock would have
been beaten by at least 20 minutes.
No Friction at Manila.

Professor Worcesetr, one of the Philip

London, Oct. 19.—Many stories of
brisk fighting are in circulation, but
although the forces may have come in
contact, all alleged details must be re
garded as premature and speculative,
especially if the report be true that the
Orange Free State troops are now in
complete possession of the railway from
Kimberley to Orange river, 70 miles
The alleged, virulence of the Boers’
attacks upon jlafeking ami Kimberley
can readily be understood when it is
realized that Bechuanaland is t« the
Boers what Alsace-Lorraine is to
France. It is therefore probable both
towns will be forced to undergo a long
and dreary investment before the Brit
ish are in position to send a relief
On the other side of the country the
Boers are closing around the British
outposts, and have already come into
touch with them and exchanged shots.
Therefore more stirring news is ex
Advices from Cape Town relate that
excitement is kept up there by cease
less reports of battles, but that little
uneasiness is visible in official circles,
where the opinion prevails that Mafe
king and Kimberley are safe. The last
message from Kimberley, prior to the
cutting of the telegraph and railway
by the Boer«, said: “All troops at
Kimberley are well.”
The calling out of the Cape Colony
volunteers is supplemented by a de
cision to raise 2,000 more volunteers
in Cape Colony and 1,000 in Natal.
Thus the total strength of the volun
teer forces in both places will amount
to 12,500 men.

The battle today was a brilliant suc

may possibly, for a time at any rate,

of the day decided the battle.
The seizure of Dundee hill by the
Boers was a surprise; for, although the

tively alive with the swarming Boers
till the British artillery got to work
with magnificent energy and precision.
Directly rhe Boer guns ceased firing,
General Symons ordered the infantry to
move on the position. The infantry
charge was magnificent. The way the
King’s Royal rifles and the Dublin fu
sileers stormed the position was one of
the most splendid sights ever seen.
General Symons was wounded early
in the action, and the command then
devolved on Major Yule.
The enemy as they fled, were fol
lowed by the cavalry, mounted infan
try and artillery. The direction taken
was to the eastward. At the latest re
ports the cavalry had not returned.
A rough estimate places the British
loss at 250 killed or wounded, and that
of the Boers at 800.
