MONDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1S99.
There is no gainsaying the fact
that the British forces in the Trans
vaal are hard pressed and speedy
reinforcement is all that will save a
crushing disaster to General White.
The forces now engaged are mak
ing a stubborn defense, but they
are fighting against heavy odds.
They are also losing heavily and
seem to be approaching the limit of
FLINGS AT THE OPPOSITION.
The career of the retiring editor
of the Advertiser would not be com
plete without a fling at the Oppo
sition. It would be unkind, under
the circumstances, to treat the Ad
vertiser's remarks seriously. It is
amusing as usual .
As far as Mr. Lansing's position
position in the Cabinet is concerned
the Opposition has not called upon
him, nor did it call upon Mr. Mo
Candless when he was suggested as
Minister of the Interior, to "knife"
Mr. Dole. At no stage of the poli
tical game has the Opposition or
my member f it tried to "knife"
Mr. Dole, much as it pleases the
Advertiser to attempt to represent
otherwise. Mr. Dole has received
more political "knifing" from his
supposed friends that the Adver
tiser lias in the past spoken for
than he has from any member of
The defense of the "unofficial
delegate" and "special agent" with
many war records is also funny.
"We agree with the Advertiser that
the pole on wlvch the unofficial
delegate is perched is well greased.
The drafts on the Diplomatic and
Consular appropriation can attest
tD the extent to which it is greased.
Jjdging trom the comments made
upon Mr. Hartwell and his mis
sion by Americans outside Hono
lulu, it would appear, that in
this particular instance Capt.
Whistletrigger's monkey had ob
tained a pair of climbers, with tne
result that the eagle cries out in
What a magnificent figure the
unofficial delegate cuts with his war
record signed by Abraham Lincoln.
Compare with this the spectacle of
the same Gen. Hartwell standing in
Hawaii in May of 1898, saying to
the American Goddess of Liberty,
to the nation that gave him birth
and honored him with marked pre
ferment, "Place but one Mep with-
j 1 that sacreu spot, ana at tny
head, yea, though it wore a crown,
I launch the curse of Rome." Com
pare the two and note how the
mighty has fallen.
When Hartwell and his asso
ciates of the Advertiser attempted
to draw their cowardly circle of
neutrality about Hawaii, and sought
toward off the protecting and devot
oJ Goddess of Liberty, the com
minder of the U. S. S. Bennington,
who represented the Goddess, and
whom the Advertiser demanded
s'lould be ordered to sea on twenty
four hours, replied with a "curse of
anger" that Hartwell and his crowd
could "go to the devil," he would
go when he got ready.
That petty spite should continue
to wranklej.in the hearts of those
who placed Spanish warships a peg
higher than the throne of the God
dess of Liberty is by no means sur
prising, To attempt a defense
.seems to be an amusing passtime for
the men whom Mr. Hartwell repre
sents, lhere Is no objection to
sucli amusement since it merely
serves to demonstrate the character
of the eagle in Capt. Wliistietrig
BLAME FOR THE DISASTER.
London, Nov. 2. A belated dispatch
fiom Ladysmlth, describing Monday's
."A couple of squndions of hussars
had a narrow escapo from disaster ear
ly In tho day. They found themselves
suddenly confronted, within easy
range, by an overwhelming forco of
llocre, who seemed to spring from tho
bowels of the earth. Tho hussais were
splendidly handled, nnd wcro extricat
ed with only one mnn wounded."
Tho Queen Is credited with express
ing sincere pity for Sir George Stewart
White, and the ofllclals nro In nowlso
Inclined to Judge him hnrshly. So far
as tho public li concerned, however,
whllo gratification Is felt at tho man
ner In which tho Isolated battalions
surrendered, thero Is still severe criti
cism of General Whlto and Lieutenant
Colonel Carleton for allowing the col
umn to get out of touch, for tho ab
senco of proper scouting and for not re
tiring when tho ammunition wns lost.
In favor of Lieutenant Colonel Carle
ton tho explanation Is hazarded that
ho bollnved It was Imperative to the
success of General Whlto's operations
that ho should hold the position nt
Tho Standard comments upon "Tho
fact thut General Whlto mado no effort
to extricate tho column from the Im
possible situation Into which he had
thrust It," draws a sad picture of the
men "hoping for relief and then real
izing with bitterness of heart that
somo ouo had blundered; that they had
been foigottcn by their general and his
staff, and that nothing wns left but
surrender and Imprisonment at Preto
ria until the end of the war."
White Not nt Fault.
Now York. Nov. 2. A Trlbuno cablo
fiom London dated November 2d, says:
A strong reaction has set against the
dopiesslon caused by the British re
verse nt Ladysmlth. General White's
repoit had convinced everybody that
tho stampede of mules was tho immedi
ate causo of tho disaster, slnco it de
prived Colonel Carlcton's column of
guns nnd reserves of ammunition. Tho
left wing van not lured Into an ambus
cade, but was forced to halt nnd hold
Its ground under adverso circumstan
ces, fighting bravely nnd desperately
until tho last cartrldgo was gono. The
reproach attaching to tho surrender of
so largo a body of soldiers loses its
sting when tho story of their heroic
stand against an overwhelming force
