COUNT LOSS BY THOUSANDS
All British Forces Brougnt to
Boiler's Defeat Was Crushing Yol-
nnteers From Colonic Accepted
Boers Are Jobllant And
Losses Not Heavy.
I.ondou, Dec. 17. Although no more
' news of Importance has como through
from the front since tho. depressing dis
patch telling of General Duller'a re
verse, It was quite enough food for talk
nil day yesterday. Tho people marvel
now one general nfUr another, and
Duller Inst of all, allowed his troops to
bo drawn Into such traps. What was
done in tho way of scouting Is, of
course, not known hero, but It Is cer
tain that very llttlo had been learned
of the enemy's position, nor do tho war
balloons appear to hnvo helped In any
Military experts hero do not see how
the action of Duller, from whom so
much had been oxpectcd, can bo do
fended, viewing It by the light of his
dispatch. Dut military men think this
dispatch was written hurriedly and re
fuse to take condemnation from his
own mouth. Thoy prefer to believe
that Generals Hart mid Hlldyard at
tacked simultaneously, and that whllo
tho former failed tho latter would havo
probably succeeded had not tho reck
less action of tho commander led to
tho destruction of tho batteries and
consequent abandonment of tho at
tack. Duller, having been taught a lesson,
may try again very soon. He Is qulto
strong enough tor cut lit J wny through,
but not to give points to his ehomles.
Therefore wo may hear more from him
In the course of a few days.
In any caso tho Government hero Is
very active, If not alarmed. A hurried
Cabtnot council was hold yesterday.
Preparations for sending strqng rein
forcements arc proceeding npace. ,
A telegram from Pretoria says that
the Doers on Thursday attacked a
small Drlttsh force near Mafeklng
with good results, tho fort being de
molished. A skirmish has also taken
placo near Colesburg, the Doers having
been attacked at Vaalkop. .
The list of casualties at Magersfon
teln Issued from the War Ofllco yester
day shows how terribly sevcro wero
the losses sustained by tho second bat
talion of tho Royal Highlanders, better
known as tho Dlack Watch. Their
total casualties numbered 325.
The Government has telegraphed to
Harl Deauchamp, Governor of Now
South Wales, an acceptance of tho of
fer of a further Australian contingent
for service in South Africa. Tho au
thorities suggest that nil men should
bo mounted and bo good shots and
should provldo their own horses.
Lord Methuen sent out artillery to
Rhell tho Door lntrenthments and out
posts. The enemy replied and a sharp
artillery duel succeeded. This was of
brief duration. No casualties occurred
on the Dritlsh side.
Tho Doers between tho Modder river
and Klraberley are believed to number
from 15,000 to 20,000 men.
The Mafeklng garrison is reported to
bo running short of provisions. Heavy
cannon fire by both tho besieged and
the enemy continues dally.
The Doers on Thursday wero attack
ing Kuruman garrison In forco. The
British were, It Is stated, making a
gallant stand. Tho result of the attack
is not known yet

GENERAL DULLER'S REPORT.
London, Dec. 16. (12:47 a. m.l Tha
War Offlco has received n dispatch an
nouncing that Gen. Duller has met with
a serious reverse, losing eleven guns
In nn unsucccsssful attempt Id cross
tho Tugela river.
Tho following Is tho text of Gen. Dul
lcr's dispatch to Lord Lansdowno:
Chlevcley Camp, Dor. 15. (0:20 p.
m.) I regret to report n serious re
verse. I moved In full strength from
our camp near Chleveley at I this
morning. Thcro aro two fotrinblo
places In tho Tugela river, nnd It was
my Intention to forco n passage
through ono of them. They are nbout
two miles apart. My Intention was to
forco ono or tho other with ore brigade
supported by a central brlgad". Gen.
Hart was to attack tho loft, Gen. Hlld
yard tho right road and Gen. L,ytIeton
to attack tho center and to support
Early in tho day I saw that Gen.
Hart would not be able to force a pas
sage, and I directed him to withdraw.
Ho had, however, attacked with Brent
gallantry nnd his loading battalion,
tho Connaught Rangers, I fear suffered
a great deal. Col. I. G. Drooko was se
I then ordered Gen. Hlldyard to ad
vance which ho did, and his loading
right, tho East Surrey, occupied Colon
so station and tho housoi near tho
At that moment I heard that tho
whole artillery I hod Kent to support
tho attack, tho 14th and 66th field bat
teries nnd six naval 12-pounders,
qulck-flrers, under Col. Long, had ad
vanced closo to tho liver, In Long's
desire to bo within effective range. It
proved to be full of tho enemy who
suddenly opened a galling flro ut close
range, killing all their horses, and the
gunners wero compelled to stand ta
their guns. Somo of tho wngon teams
got Bheltcr for" tho troopp in a donng,
and desperate effort) wcio mndo to
bring out tho field guns. The -fire,
however, wns too sovcre, nnd only two
wero saved by Capt. rfchoodold and
some drivers, whoso tinmen I will fur
nish. Another gallant attempt with three
teams was made by an officer, whose
nnmo I will obtain. Of tlu eighteen
horses, thirteen wcro Killed, nnd us
sovoral drivers wcro wounded, I would
not allow another attempt, as It seemed
that thoy would bo a shell mark. Not
wishing to sacrlflco llfo to a gallant
attempt to forco tho rnssago unsup
ported by artillery," 1 directed tho
troops to withdraw, which they did In
Throughout tho day n considerable
force of tho enemy was passing on my
right flank, but was kept back by
mounted men under Lord Dundonnld
and part of Gen. Barton's brigade Tho
day was Immensely hot and trying to
tho troops, whoso conduct was excel
lent Wo havo abandoned ten guns nnd
lost by sholl one.
The losses in Gen. Hart's brigade
are, I fear, heavy, although the propor
tion of severely wounded Is, I hope,
not large. The 14th aud 66th field bat
teries also suffered severe losses.

STISAMEKS HAUL. OUT.
This forenoon tho Island steamers In

ing to tho orders of the Doard of
Health agreed on at last night's meet
ing. This is dono to prevent possible
contagion by means of infected rats.
Freight Is being taken aboard the
steamers leaving today by means of
Minister Cooper, President of tho
Doard of Health, hns been busy all day
with Bhlppers of freight. Each person
Is required to stato the contents of va
rious packages and boxes and their
origin, nnd permits must bo signed by
Minister Cooper before freight is allow
ed to pass. In tho caso of Japanese
and Chlneso freight most rigid ex
amination has been Instituted. Freight
of this nature If taken from tho Cus
tom Houso or from the warehouses of
people other than Chlneso or Japancso
Is allowed to go. All morning and up

very few havo boen refused health cer

refused passage, It being found that
their statements wcro false.
Although all posslblo precaution in
tho matter of freight and passengers
on local steamers Is being, taken by
tho Doard of Health, it is a question In
the minds of many as to whether these
steamers will be allowed to land at
ports on tho other islands. Kauai is
very strict about such matters and,
from remarks of prominent people
there heard by a representative of this
paper while on the Garden Isle, It is a
question If tho Hall will bo allowed to
put passengers and freight ashore at
Nawlllwlll tomorrow morning.
