Hi BlftS MMHD Roberts’ Movement Takes Them by Surprise. MADE NO DETERMINED STAND «_____ tic treated Eastward, Being Followed by French'« Cavalry—The Dutch Making fur Bloemfontein. London, March 10.—The Boers ap- pear to have made no stand whatever, except that while in retreat they twice repulsed General French’s cavlary with rifle fire. As no report has been made of the capture of prisoners, the enemy probably got away with their entire force. General French is still follow ing them and keeping between them and Bloemfontein. The evacuation of the northern dis tricts of Cape Colony is now nearly complete. The British are in posses sion of the rialroad crossings. The military critics comment on the discouraging news from Mafeking. Colonel Baden-I’owell seems to be in grave need of outside help. Otherwise he would not allow correspondents to seud out information respecting the distress of the garrison. A re-adjustment of some of the higher commands is taking place. General W hite is to go to Stormberg to take supreme command of General Gatacre’s division and the Tenth division, now in process of formation, which will be under the immediate command of Gen eral Hunter, Sir George White’s chief- of-staff. The Daily News makes the following announcement: “It was rumored in London yester day—and we have no reason for be lieving the rumor,to be correct—that the two republics made informal and unofficial overtures of peace on the preceding day. Unfortunately, the conditions suggested were of such character as to preclude the possibility •of leading to any result. Terms which might have been gladly accepted be fore the war, in order to avert it, are impossible after the war, with all the sacrifices it has entailed.” General Robert«* Report* London, March 10.—Following is the text of Lord Roberts’ dispatch, re- v lived by the war office today: "Poplar Grove, March 10.—Two irigades of cavalry, with horse artillery •nd Kelly-Kenny’s division, marched :oday 10 miles eastward. The Boers were taken by surprise yesterday. They moved off so hurriedly that they left cooked dinners behind them. We captured a Krupp gun and several tents and wagons. The total casualties were: Killed, Lieutenants Keswick and Frieslick; wounded, Lieutenants Hailey, of the Twelfth Lancers, and Decrispigne, of the Second Life Guards, both severely, and Lieutenant Smith, o' the Shropsliires, who is believed to have been picked up by Boer ambu lance. Two men were killed, 46 wound ed, and one man is missing. “Gatacre re|s>rts he intends occupy ing Burgersdorp today. Repairs to the Tailroads toward both Stormberg and Leyusberg are being pushed.

The bridge was blown up March 6, and -the enemy is holding the north bank of the river, but not, it is believed, in any great strength.” Ma ny Have Smallpox. Jackson, Miss., March 10.—An offi cial report made to the Hinds county Icard of supervisors reveals an appall ing state of affairs in the Jonesville neighterhood, in the southern part of the county. The community is literal ly honeycombed with smallpox of the most virulent foim, and during the past six weeks nearly 100 deaths have oc curred. On some days the death rate lias been so large that it was imiossi- ble to secure coffins, and rude caskets were made from rails. Whole families were wiped out of existence and of sev eral large families only one or two chil dren are left. Many of the patients who are now in a critical condition are without medi cal attention, and are dying at the rate ■of from three to five a day. The death rate exceeds 75 per ceent, and the en tire lower portion of the county is de moralized. The board of supervisors will make an effort to check further spread. Antl-Brltl.li Blot In Bordonnz. Bordeaux, March 10.—Late yester day evening students and others issuing from a pro-Boer meeting marched to the British consulate, battered down the doors, shattered the windows with stones, and then proceeded to the con sul’s private residence, where they in dulged in similar demonstrations. The jsilice disjiersed the mob and arrested several leaders. The prefect of the Gironde, the mayor of Bordeaux and the commissary of police called on the consul today and expressed regret at the occurrence. Recruited to Full Strength. Ottawa, March 10.—Minister Borden received tonight from the war office a cable accepting 100 men to recruit the First Canadian contingent to its full «■trength. They will leave with the Strathcona Horse. Eight-Club Circuit. New York, March 10.—The National Baseball League for the season of 1900 will have an eight-club circuit. This announcement was made at the Fifth Avenue hotel at 11:30 o’clock tonight, when the league meeting adjourned. A verbal agreement was reached to night, and tomorrow the agreement will be formally executed. The retiring clubs are Washington, P.altimoie, Louisville and Cleveland. Each club will receive a money consideration for •to franchise. SITUATION AY MAFEKING. MINES AND MINING. Terrible Plight of the Besieged, but No Talk of Surrender. ftlch Claim, tn Hit* Klondike Country— Aestheticism in Mining Camps. Mafeking, Feb. 21.—What may be typhoid fever has broken out in the womens’ laager, and dysentery, due to the absence of vegetables, is rife among the garrison. We are thrown upon our own resources. Such luxuries as we had are exhausted, or have been commandeered for the hospitals, which are filled to overflowing. The chil dren’s graveyard, close to the women’s laager, grows weekly as the young lives are cut short prematurely by shells and fever. We look with hope deferred for relief. The cheerfulness which was charact eristic of the early days of the siege has almost deserted us, the men preferring to remain at their posts, rather than move about and work up an appetite, which cannot be satisfied. The natives are in the worst plight. Those who are unable to obtain work are allowed a small handful of meat daily. Many, braving the danger, wander about the town with gaunt and huiigiy faces in search of work which eutitles them to an extra ration of meat. If they find work they are generally too weak to jierform it. From their advance posts the Boers rake the streets and the market square. It is impossible to dodge their bullets. We have taken remarkable precaution, however, and the casualties, though heaVy, are not what they might have been with less able men at the head of affairs. Even the headquarters’ mess fares scantily. Like saints under the altar, we cry, “How long. O Lord, how ri long?” Two hundred and ninety-two per sons have been killed, wounded, or dead of disease, The garrison is so small that it would be criminal to make its weakness public, but- there is never so much as a whisper or sugges tion of the possibility of surrender, lie cause we do not mean to get beaten, and we are cheerfully enduring the hardships of today rather than to make a surrender in any degree possible to- morrow. Some one said that inau first works for bread, then for butter on his bread, and will exhaust himself to get sugar I on the butter. There is a great deal ol truth in the remark; at least as far as I miners are concerned. They want th« best when they have the price. They i «re not so exacting so far as flowert ami lerfuines go. They are not aestlric in their tastes and inclinations, but they want good clothing, good board,1 good magazines and laaiks and good, comfortable homes or lodgings. They can rough it when necessary, tak« their bacon and beans as their every day diet, sleep where night overtakes ' them and never whimper, growl oi . grumble at their fare. They are min-1 erg and take life as they find it, not as they would wish it to be. Of course, they enjoy their bread, but will take butter on it if they’ can get it, and will have the sugar if it doesn’t cost too much. But a miner’s life, and his cnstore aud habits do not lead him in th< direction of aestheticism, He is a geu tieman, but not a dude, He may be *= little rough in his ways and blunt it his language, at times, well-meanin; and kind-hearted and disposed to de the right thing under all circum stances. He may npi>ear stern and tin yielding, but it should be borne it II mind that the miner is forced to meet aud overcome stern and apparently un I yielding conditions in his daily avoca tions. These conditions often find ex pression in his demeanor. FARMING FOR ALASKA Graine, Flax, Clover and Vegetable* Thrive Surprl«liigly — AI mo Goats, Sheep and Cattle. BRADSTREET’S REPORT.
