London, Dec. 2. As surmised, the
British dead and wounded at tho hard
fought battle of Modder river number
hundreds. Tho War Department today
gave out the Information that tho total
number of casualltles was 438 and that
tho number killed was 73.
Tho rovlscd list of Modder river cas
ualties, non-commissioned officers and
men, Is divided as follows:
Ninth Lancers, 1 wounded; Engin
eers, 2 wounded; Artillery, 3 killed, 25
wounded; Second Coldstrcams, 10 kilt

killed, 38 wounded, 4 missing; Scots
Guards, 10 killed, 37 wounded, 1 miss

Sutherland Highlanders, 15 killed, 95
wounded, 2 missing; First Coldstrcams,
20 wounded; South African Reserve, 1
wounded; Medical Corps, 1 wounded.
From General Fortestlcr-Webstcr's
dispatch it is proved that all reports of
General Methuen's advnnce after tho
battle of Modder river were premature,
though, with tho railroad working, he
should not be long In constructing n
temporary bridge. His enforced delay
doubtless will bo of considerable ser
vico in giving his hard-pushed column
needful rest and In allowing tho arri
val of reinforcements, of which he
must bo sorely In need after thrco such
fights, placing hors do combat upwards
of a thousand men out of less tbnn

lieved much anxiety hore, where It was
fully expected tho Boers would at
tempt to attack tho vulnerable points
of tho lino of communication.
The latest news from Natal indicates
that tho bulk of tho Lndysmlth relief
force has arrived at Frcro, though there
Is considerable conjecture as to tho
whereabouts of General CIcry, whoso
movements hate not been chronicled
It Is surmised In some quarters that
ho may reappear In u totally unexpect
ed quarter, on tho flank or rear of Gen
eral Joubcrt's force, which Is supposed
to bo concentrated at Grobelaars
Kloof, north of tho Tugela river. As
General Htldyard's advnnce guard was
In touch with tho Boers as long ago as
Tuesday last, developments should not
bo long delayed.
Dundonald's mounted force, on No
vember 28, accompanied by four guns,
went in pursuit of a body or Boers re
turning to Colcnso. They followed tho
Boers to within two and a half miles of
Colcnso, when tho Boers replied to the
British Bhells with long-range guns.
Thero wero no casualties.
Colenso bridge, It Is added, was af
terwards blown up.
Another detachment of 3,000 Brttsh
troops sailed for South Africa today.

Washington, Dec. 1. Tho Cabinet
discussed briefly today the President's
messago, on which tho finishing
touches h.avo been placed, except to
that portion of tho message relating to
tho Philippines. That section of the
messago is being held up In the hope
that tho President may be ablo to an

Tne members of tho Cabinet are unani

"Tho Philippine question Is solving

becamo a certainty, those- shock-headed

The statement was made to tho Bul

had tendered his resignation to Mr.

in the possession of tho local Exccutlvo
for tho past thrco weeks. In following
up tho matter ono genticman remarked
mat tho action of the Chief Justico has
been known In official circles for sev
eral weeks but for Bomo reason had
been discussed under tho plcdgo of se

upon tho urgent request of locnl offi
cers that ho consented to remain in

"Havo you received tho resignation
of Chief Justico Judd?"
"No. I havo not."
"Do you know anything of It official
ly or personally?"
"I do not caro to say anything more."
Tho general trend of public opinion
Is that Mr. Judd should retain his offlco
as long as ho desires, but it is felt that
