MARCH ON LADYSMITH
It Is Sa;d That General Warren with Ten
Thousand Men, Has Crossed the
Little Tugela Kivor.
Cupetown, Saturday. Jan III. ��� There
in Rood reason to believe tliat the report that Sir Charlos Warren, with 10,-
000 men, has gono towards Weeoen, is
oorreot and we may expeot important
news shortly,
Report, have boon received hero
that dysentry is rifo io Latlyntiiitli.
London, Jan. 1(1.-14 a.m.)���General
Buller's latest authontio word, as to
what be and his 110,0(H) nieu aro doing,
waH wired from Springfield after his
step forward. Striving to think out
tlu> unknown is confused by tho surmise and rumor, and disquieted by suspense. Mr. Spencer Wilkinson, the lucid military expert of the Morning
Post, nsscrta thnt the Boor force in
Northern Natal is linger than General
Boiler', and Sir George White's together, so that the Hoers aie able ti
loav ii force around Ladysmith larger
than tbut within the town aud yet to
oppose Buller with a [orco superior to
his own. Heports from the Boors'
camps ailirin the oirolc of investment
has been drawn closelv by the occupation of some hills near the town, thus
liberating re-inforcements to oppose
'.ieneral Buller. The Daily News Bug
gSBtl that a multitude of the rumors
ihat originato in South Africa and
London are given currency by the
KiiRlish military authoiitics in order
te mislead the Boers,
The war pages of the great dailies
this morning are almost barren. Nevertheless tbe instruments ou tbe loops
connecting the War Office with the
cables continue to click.
Among tbe minor perplexities of the
Wur Ollice is a strike among the military tailors, which oanses delay in uniforming the recruits,
The Hiiuiiiigham Mail, tho organ of
Mr. Joseph Chamberlain,   Bays:
" We understand on the highost nu
thority that it the Government is defeated iu Parliament on the question
ot tho wnr, tbe Cabinet will lmitieui
utely appeal to the oonutry, all the
Ministers having decided to stand the
ground and not permit any iudivi mul
Minister to be mane a scapegoat."
Bnller to tho effoct that he expected
that all the dispositions for a synchronous movement of the various columns against the besoiRere would be
completed this morning. Under these
oirenmstunces, it is considered quite
probable that the advance on the beleaguered town has commenced and
that fighting is nrngiessing Optim
isis go so far as to say it is oxpeoled
Ladysmith will bo relieved tonight if
all goes well. The olllcials nre in-
eliiied to credit the report that the
British have crossed tho Tugela Rivor
in that direction, although there is no
confirmation of the report. Altogether
there is n in.ire hopeful feeling iu offl
cinl circles. There is liitlo news of
importance from elsewhore.
London, Jan 10-The Standard
gives prominence to tho following dispatch dated Sunday, January 14, from
Durban : A mnn who has just arrived
here from Springfield, says that a British column, proceeding to the relief of
Ladysmith, has crossed the little Tugela. When he left it was facing the
Boer position on the big Tngelu and a
Howitzer was shelling the Boer
trenohes.
He also says that 270 wagons load-
od with commissariat stores for Ladysmith had left Frere nnd it was expected that the column woold be in tho
hands of General White Monday evening. The traction engines havo been
doing ezoellent work in hauling heavy
wagons out of boles and swamps. This
they accomplished with the greatest
of ease. The British patrols have discovered parties of Boers in tho direction of Ennersdale, between Frere
ami Estoonrt.
London, Jan. 15. ���A dispatch to the
Daily Mnil, dated Saturday, Jan. Id.
from Lorenzo Murqnez, snys President
Kroger bos issued n proclamation ordering all Buighers to tho frout. Th*
Volcstem, the Transvnnl oflieial organ,
suggests thut the moment the British
cross the border, tho gold industry
should be Irretrievably destroyed.
President Kroger also issued a eireu-
lttr,dated January B, to Boer commandants and Bnrgbers, urging them to
show more energy in toe Transvaal
cause. He quotes Psalm XXXIII,
verse VII, as God had given instructions to the isorghers and says that
the British have lixed the faith in
Psalm LXXX1II. He also quotes
Psalm LXXX1X, verses XIII and XIV,
and asserts that be has searched the
Bible without being able tu find other
mode which can be followed by the
Boers, who must light in the uamo of
the Lord.
Comniauderiug is proceeding ImBily
nt Pretoria, where the town guard is
exchanging Mansers *.ior Martinis as
tho former are luidly needed at the
front. It is said that there aro nearly
three thousand British prisoners in
Pretoria.
London, Jan. 15. ���Up to tbe preseul
the reported orossing of tho Tugela
Kivor by General Warren's division
remains but minors, nevertheless the
whole tenor of such news as has dribbled In from South Afrioa during the
last for?-night hours, indicates that n
'unbilled forward movement of a comprehensive ohaiacter ih proceeding It
is not necessary to believed thn uucoii-
Ht.i... stories of the Boers being in
full ret i eat, from Colenso, because it
bns been learned that a column is proceeding   via Woenou, to help  Makarn
to ont off their retreat   At the same
time creditable information from many
different tonroei indisputably points to
iiiiniiiintuous changes in the disposition or the Repnbltoan forces. Advices from Pietoriuaritzbnrg,dated Sal-
""lay Januaiy 111, say that since their
'Meat on January 0, the Boere have
nun removing their guns from the
position south of Ladysmitb. The
sa-no dispatch confirms the report that
the 18th Hussars reached Groblorskoof
without mooting the Boers. Ab the
trenches at Gr.blnrskoof were perhaps
the strongest position held by the Burghers their vacation hns considerably
Mt-Hlshed the British. Merchants of
''"termiiritzburg have received mes-
Wgeil from Ladysmith saying : Bring

smith, Tuesday, Jan. II. ��� The Boers,
occupying the southern edges of Buster's Oop, were driven out bv the Biit-

ing. It is true I am arming and it is
because I see clearly that 1 must do-
fend my country.''
To this Mr. Robinson replied: "The
British publio is aroused. If any attempt were made again to enter this
country, (here would be a great outory
in England ; and the Imperial authorities could take steps to punish the organizers and to prevent such free booting expeditions."
President Kroger approached Mr.
Robinson, placed a hand on his shoulder, made n violont effort to suppress
his excitement, and said : "Yon mean
well, but I have lost confidence. What
bus happened would take place again
nnd I nm determined to guard ngninst
it."
Later Mr. Kruger said: "What ib to
prevent Khodes and co-adjntors again
engineering some diabolical attempt
against the independence of my country?"
London, Jan. 1(1.���The correspondent
of tbe Daily Telegraph at Pietermar-
itzburg, telegraphing Thursday, Jan.
11, says: "Tha gallantry of tbo Ladysmith garrison last Saturday appears
to have depressed if not actually demoralized the Boers generall). It is
said that thoy lost at least two, if not
three, killed as against our one"
Loudon, Jan 10���Tho correspondent
of the Tillies ot Lorenzo Marquez, telegraphing Inst Saturday, says :|T'be Free
State has now oalled out every available man, including the lending merchants, who have expected to enjoy
immunity.
The Volks-Ste, in the course of an
articlo, obviously -.inspired, .indicate-*
the gold-tax as u political move, holding tbut the assumption be correct that
the bulk of the Baud shares is held on
the condition that Germany, France
and other countrios must recognize tbe
desirability of bringing tbo wnr to n
epeedy close. It adds that every day
the war continues costs the shareholders ��17,000.
A threat of confiscation was used to
force the tax. With the invaluable
assistance of a considerable number of
British subjects, the Boers are stend-
ily increasing the yield of the mines,
thus securing fnnds to pay foioigners
employed iu the manufacture of explosives, shells nnd other agents for
the prosecution of the war. The time
must come when the Imperial Governmeut will proclaim that such
British subjects will be prosecuted for
treason or deprived of British citizenship.
Berlin, Jan. 15.���Emperor William
still Hikes the deepest interest in tbe
Bundesiath incident and holds frequent conferences on tho subjeot with
the Forotgh Secretary, Count Von Buo-
low. The German Ambassador, Von
Hntzfeldt, has informed the German
Government that tho seizures were
u ion the order of the British Admiralty, and not of the Foreign Otllce.
At the Foreign Office today, it was asserted, in reply to inquiry, that the reported discovery of a quantity of rifles
in the cargo of the Bnndesrnth was
unimportant, since it was already
known through the mnnifest thnt there
were several ensea of hunting rifles on
hoard.
London, .Inn. Ill���Mr. J. B, Robinson, the South African iiillionnire, in
n signed article in the Daily News
ibis morning, relate! conversjtions he
has bold with Krnger nnd describes
several interviews in which the Jamie-
son raid v as talked of. On one of tln"ic
occasions President Kruger snid: "Do

gineeied the raid, organised also for

Ottnwa.Ont., Jan. In.���The Government has beon officially notified of the
WBr Office's acceptnuce of Lord Strath-

Africa, will be Milwaukee, siBter ship

than the Montezuma. The fittings in
the latter, however, which are now almost complote, will do for the Milwaukee with very little change.

that the people wore becoming tired of

Just arrived from Milwaukee.
Mr. Martin is opposed lo suli-titu
ting a money subsidy for the land
grunt made in aid of the Columbia &
Western railway. That is Mr. Martin's privilege, whatever may ho his
motive; whether a conscientious regard
for principle, which has never been
known to weigh too heavily on that
gentleman, or personal animosity,
which long and assiduous cultivation
has made a part of his nature. Ilo opposes the Change, and Inhes the ground
that the Railway Company have now
no right to either subsidy or grant.
There are IpriiI points involved in tho
ease as he presents it. nud with these
we do uot propose to have anything to
do; but there is one broad oomprehen-
sivo point based on justice nnd common Bense, aud in respect to tbut we
presume to havo an opinion thai is
perhaps ns valuable ns Mr. Martin's.
Thn Columbia & Western began under a Provincial charter, and to aid in
its construction the Legislature voted
a laud grant of two or three million
acres, Every person in the Dominion
capable Of reading a page of English
intelligently has known  for years that
it is within  the  light of the Federal
authority to  take   control  of nny Pro
vineial railway, by the simple declaration that it is for the general advantage of  Canadn.    The   land grant wus
voted subject  to   that authority,   and
with tbe knowledge   that  at any time
it might be  exercised.    In the  course
of time it wus exercised, iu   pursuance
ot u policy prevailing nt  Uttuwa  that
all railways of any pretension or importance whatever should be broughl
within the jurisdiction  of the Homin-
ion and subject to tbe General Ball-
way Act.    Any other policy wonld  be
liable to provoke much   inconvenience.
When the   grant was made, therefore,
it was within the  knowledge of every
member  of  the Legislature who knew
his a, b, c of poplie  affairs thut  the
Columbia  &   Western  would    nlmuit
certainly, indeed, quite certainly, pass
from under the control of the Province
to that of lhe Dominion.
Mr.    Murtin contends  that    linemen
thiB has neon done the Company's right
to  the   land   lapses.    Thero   may   bo
speoial provisions in  the charter under I QP'TJOOT
���which   it would   bo   possible   to press   rOVjllv-'V.-Ll
this claim, but we were unable to  do-
teot any reference to them iu the report
of   Mr.   Martin's    speech.    With   our
present information we understand the
Columbia & Western was Incorporated
iu tho  iiBnnl   way, wns voted  a   land
grant  subject to the usunl  conditions,
und that it finally passed tu Dominion
oontrol in the usual Inevitable way.
To dnim under these circuinatiineis
thut the Company nre no longer eniitl-
ed to tbo land Rrant is merely a preliminary to repudiation; nnd wo should
think, it we may be permitted to have
an opinion on the subject, that iu
the repudiation of last session this
Province has had as much dishonor
thrust npnn it as the public reputation
und the public credit will bear with
safety.
Lord Stralhcona's offer to equip und
land at Cape Town four hundred mounted solidnrs is niagnilicenl in its patriotism and genei'OBity, The l'rovini-inl
ofl'er to Bend ono hundred rough riders
is no strain on the patriotism of British Columbia, but it is ton much like
the offer of a nflllion iu aid of an tm-
peirnl cable to command ranch admiration, There is just it little ton much
self-glory in it to give it the genuine
ring.

follows:
Pnblio Works Committee���Aldermen
Irvine, (chairman), Hull nnd Wilson.
Finance Committee���Aldermen McKillop (clniirninn), Arthur nnd the
successful oundldate in thn Morrison-
Irving dispute,
Tlie application of Dr Stoddnrt for
leave to obtain power from tbo Wist
Kootenny Power & Light. Compnoy,referred tn the present Council by the old
one, wns considered and, on the motion of Aldermen Arthnr and Hall, it
was decided to refuse to issue permits
to anyone for the use of electric power
from that company. The application
of Ed. MaoGregoi for tho position ot
City Pound Eeepei wns laid over.
II. W, llnwley wrote offering to pny
BO coins, ii loii lor ico taken from the

On tlie motion of Aid. Hull and

The Council ilien endorsed thn late

consists of Aldermen MoKillop, Wilson
and Arthur.
After deciding that the Council
would meet in the City Hall every
Monday ul 8 p, m. the meeting adjourned.
probably the largest ho has bud yet.
Possibly the Bleping mnn in Des
Brisny's window was a drawing onrd,
as ho was nwnkenod on the stage lasl
night. Before waking him np Professor McKwen proceeded to demonstrate
Ihe genuineness of the hypnotic sleep
by puttiug sterilized pms through
bis lips, pushing n tooth pick up iiis
iici-i> aud touching his eyeballs, none of
whioh operations caused tho sleeper to
winco hi th" hast. Dr. Uabel Arthur
and Dr. Stoddnrt were ou the stage and
wntohed these tests carefully, nud were
thoroughly satisfiud ns to their genuineness, The slci'iicv then woke up,
having been iii a hypnotic sleep since
8 a, in. He was ravenously hungry,
nml did ample justice to the dinner
provided for him.
A very funny scene wns enacted Inter nu when n subject was placed on a
ehnir and told he wns Inking his des
girl mil for n drive. Tho purl, of tb,
best gill was taken by another subject
under n similar delusion, nnd tho audience screamed with laughter ns tbo
two nun nii'eotinnately embraced The
eniei (annul nt included with n baseball
gnnie, Stveral outfielders stood among
tho nudience, nud they nil plnyed the
imnginnry gniue with much zest, even
if with but. littlo skill.
Tbo cerformanoes uro slill as funny
as ever, nnd il is universally regretted
ibm Mr. MoKvi'ii hns only two nioie
nights to play here.
