London, March 8, C n. m. Lord Rob

Oafontoln and in tho evening from
roplar Grove, 11 miles eastward. By
an application of tho elomontary princl
pics of strategy, tho Boer positions, 10
miles long, across r is path havo been
emptied, and their holders havo been
obliged to retlro in confusion. Nothing
was dono by Lord Roberts to disturb
tho symmetry, tho deadly Ingonulty, of
tho Boer tronches in front ot him. Ho
marched out infantry estimated, from
tho commands named, at 30,000 mon
and sent 10,000 horsemon and horso ar
tillery in a bold swcop around tho Boer
left, whereupon tho Boer center and
right becamo untenable. Fifty British
fell when tho cavalry camo In contact
with tho Boers.
Tho correspondents differ us to tho
enemy's strength, Tho Dally Mall's
correspondent thinks tho Boers number
something moro than 4000. Tho Dally
News man estimates thorn at 10.000. As
theso figures comes from observers at

Although their moralo is somewhat
damaged, it would bo too much to say
that thoy will not stand again. Indeed,
what wo went thorn to do Is to stand
again, for It is only In a real, stand-up
fight that wo can inflict thoso losses which
would eventually lead tho defeated to

a success, but it must not bo regarded as

l'rescott, tho Oregonlan writer at
Salem, an active and prominent Repub
lican, sent this to his paper yesterday:
Marion county Republicans are very
much wrought up over tho apportion
ment of delegates to tho Republican
county convention. Tho matter is tho
chief subject of discussion in pollticul
circles, and it Isuvldent thatsomo changes
must bo mado inthoaportionuietitiiiat
least ono of tho precincts or there will
bo trouble. Owing to tho numerous
changes in tho precinct boundaries
It Mas Impossible for tho appor
tionment to bo mado accurately in
all Instances, but no complaint
has been mado except as between
tho city and country precincts, Salem
No. 3 falling with tho country precincts.
Somo of tho country precincts say that
tho city has moro than its sharu ot dele
Kates to tho convention, and is thus
given an undue amount ot power. In
18'Jti tho four Salem precincts had 40
delegates out of a total ot 231. Under
thu present apportionment tho Salem
precincts will havo 67 delegates out ot
Tho Importance of tho alleged error
In apportionment lies In the fact that
Salem No, 'J. which was civon a dfs
proiwrtlonato Increaso, Is supposed to
bo MoUrlde's strongest precinct, while
in SaIoiii No. 3, the sentiment u against
tho ro-eleetlon ol our senior senator.
Somo havo gono so far as to chargo that
tho apportionment was fixed for tho
purposo of increasing McBfide's strength.
Whether this bo truo or not, it is evi
dent that tho effect of tho error in allot
ting delegates will bo Injurious to Mc
Brldo. That this Is simply part ot the pro
gram Is generally bollovod. It is qutto
certain that no man could announce
himself as n McBrido man and gain n
soit In tho county convention. Tho
only hopo tho Senator's frionds have,
therefore, in this city, is to conceal their
alleglauco to him ami thereby gain con
trol of tbo county convention.
