London, Feb. !). The Daily Telegraph has received the following dispatch
dated Tuesday, February tith, from Spearman's Camp: This is the second
day of the battle and the fighting has been fiercer than it was yesterdaj'.
At dawn the Boers began the action by shelling our bivouac with their Long
Tom and Pompon guns from Doorm Kloof. Their (Much shells fell near the
pot where General Duller and his staff were watching the engagement.
One shell burst amid a squadron of the Thirteenth Hussars, but not a soul
Our guns from Zwartskop and on the plain soon silenced the enemy's
artillery, but repeatedly the Boors brought back their guns, put them into

position. During the morning our gunners succeeded in blowing up the
enemy's ammunition wagon upon Doorm Kloof. General Lytteltoii's brig-
ulo was shot at from three sides, and had a warm time upon Vital Krantz.
Desperate efforts were made by the Boers to recover the smoking hill.
The Durham Light Infantry, the King's Royal Rifles and the Scottish Rifles
gallantly charged and cleared the position. General Hildyard's brigade
elieved General Lvttelton's brigade toward sunset.
Fighting continued until !). Several prisoners have been taken. They

At 11 o'clock the Boers opened with artillery'firc and sent several shells
among the British infantry, who retired one hour later. Meanwhile a Vig

London, Feb, I). A dispatch to the Morning Post from Ladysmith. dated
Feb. (5th, says: Little can be seen of General Buller's action, owing to the
haze. It appears that the Boers have withdrawn their big guns from the
hills here southward. A large force of Boers still remain and the garrison
is prepared for a night attack.
London, Feb. !), 2:!55 p, m. (Afternoon Service.) There is still no news
of Gen. Buller's doings today or yesterday. A dispatch dated FrereCainp.

Wednesday, February 7, and sent to Frere by runner says: The forces of
the enemy are on both our flanks and continue to render our position ex

London, Feb. !). The Times in an editorial dealing with General Buller'!
task, says: The problem before him is unquestionably most difficult. W
cannot be surprised or disheartened should he be unable to solve it with sue
cess. His task is not merely to forco a way through the Boer lines to Lady-
smith. That operation would be formidable enough, but it would bo easy
compared with the feat he must prrform if largo strategical results are to
follow his efforts. He must inflict a crushing defeat upon the Boer army
unless lie can drjve into tlio uraivcnsoerg or otnerwise destroy mat army
tlio relief of Ladysmith can hardly bo accomplished with safety. We await
tliu issue of the operation with great anxiety.

San Fhancisco, Feb. 7. Samuel Parker has mado two trips to
Washington from here during the past eight or ten weeks. In talking
about prospective legislation for tjio islands and former Queen Liliuoka
lani's attitude thereto, ho said last evening:
"By next March or April I am confident Congress willgivo Hawaii a ter
ritorial form of government. Mr. Dole is likely to be the first governor.
Liliuokalani, who is over sixty years of ago and in rather poor health, is in
Washington. She has submitted to the inevitable with good grace. Her
best friends have advised her not to claim the crown lands. I firmly believe
that the Congress and President McKinlcy aim to treat her fairly. Some
satisfactory monetary consideration will bo given, or settled upon her.
''Under the monarchy there were set apart many acres known as crown
lands. Under the regime of the United States they will be known as gov
ernment lands and will be treated as such, Much of this land is held by
leases entered into by people before Uncle Sam assumed control. These
leases will, I think, have to be respected. There will be, in all probability,
legislation looking to the right of lessees to dispose of land subject to the

subject of the elective franchise for tlio natives. I think the natives should
have the right to vote. I hope, in fact I believe, tlio McKinlcy Administra

No Plague On Hawaii.
On Friday night, Feb. Hi, Dr. Wood
returned to Honolulu with the cheer
ing news mat more are no. luriner
plague cases at Hilo.
To an Advertiser reporter he said:
"The case of Mrs. Serrao was very
suspicious, m met, i uenovcv it was
a case of plague. I have no positive
proof that it was plague, but it cer
tainly looks that way.
"There has not been another suspi
cious ease in Hilo since the death of
Mrs. Serrao, nothing whatever
occurring while I was there. Mem
bers of her family who lived in the
sanio house, and were even quaran
tined there, were not taken sick; all
are perfectly well.
"How do I account for the infec
tion? Well, from my investigation, I
thiaik it must have come, from the
sewer. Tlio storc-iront is directly on
a level with Walanuenue street,
while the rear of the store extends

in this place; if there was-any infec
tion caiiL'ht bv her, that is where
she got it. Her husband denies very
strongly that she ever went bare
footed, but from my investigations 1
am very sure that she did.
"Evidently there was no infection
in tho liou.se they lived in, for none
of the people became ill there before
or after sho died. The house, togeth

ordered burned before I left, and pre
