Mobility of the Boers
Amazes Tbeir Opponents
Now York, May 1. A dispatch to
the Trlbuno from London says:
A significant Item of intelligence has
been received from Capo Town. The
Express correspondent in that city says
It Is nsscrtcil on good nuthorlty that
General Hunter has been sent to Kim
berlcy to command a strong column
Intended for tho relief of Mafcklng, It
will Include Bartons Fusllccr Brigade,
which has lntely been brought round
from Nntnl and a strong contingent of
horses and gnus.
Tho Times correspondent In Woem
fonteln gives some Interesting par
ticulars respecting tho manner In
which many Free Staters lmve abused
the leniency and clemency hitherto
shown to them by Lord Roberts in the
capital itself. A secret society was
formed to mnintnin communications
with the Doer commnndos and to pro
moto tho rc-ariimmcnt of tho burgh
crs. Tho existence of tho conspiracy
was gradunlly brought to light, and
tho Field Marshal hns made up his
mind that In the future conspirators
must be punished.
Tho mobility of tho lloer force must
bo something uncanny if nil accounts
aro worthy of credence, for they arc
reported as arriving at Ilrnndfort on
Friday night from Wepcner and I)o
wetsdorp; ns retiring to Ladybrnnil
and returning to Thabanchu on Sat
urday, nnd ns holding their ground In
strong forco In front of General
French on Sunday. Tho Drltlsh man
euvers are equally mysterious. A gen
eral advance northward Is described ns
Impending, yet French Is alternately
described as harassing tho enemy with
nrtlllcy flro End cavalry skirmishing
nnd ns thwarting General Do Wet's
efforts to turn the Drltlsh (lank. Gen
eral French hns four Infantry brigades
nnd a largo cavalry force, nnd clear
ly must have some motive for halting
at Thabanchu nnd playing with the
Boers, Instead of vigorously attacking
Tho advance northward cannot ho
undertaken until the force east of Tha
banchu has been dispersed, yet for
three or four days there has been skir
mishing with tho Doers' rear guard,
until It hos been reenforced from Lady
brand. If Generals Brabant and Hart
are moving northward from Wepcner
to l-adybrand, these, dilatory tactics
nro Intelligible, since General French
In that caso would hnvo an adequate
motive- for holding and amusing the
Boer forco nt Thabanchu. The distance
Is fifty miles and there. Is reason to be
lieve that this march has been under
taken, although thcro is no direct
proof. With Ladybrnnd occupied by
General Hnrt, General Do Wet's retreat
eastward would bo cut off and General
French would ho In a position for at
tacking Do Wet's commnndos and fol
lowing them northward.
Tho situation ns far ns It could b'.'
made out at midnight, was essentially
unchanged. Three divisions of Lord
Roberts' army were available for a
direct advance upon Drandfort by the
railway from Bloemfontcln; two cav
alry brigades and tho mounted infan
try divisions were nt Thabanchu with
tho Eighth and Ninth divisions; the
third division was within supporting
distance of Dcwtcsdorp and Generals
Brabant and Hart were cither nt Wep
cner or on their way to Lndybrand.
Tho Indications still seemed to point
to n, turning movement from Thaban
chu northward to the Vet river, with
the Sixth, Sovcnth and Ninth Divisions
cooperating near tho railway line.
Lord Roberts' secrets, however, are so
well kept that forecasts arc of little
Experienced soldiers say that Loid
Roberts will secure- tho southern sec
tion of tho Free State against raiding
operations by drawing a cordon across
tho country nnd permanently occupy
ing Sannnn's Post, Thabanchu nnd
Ladybrand and that ho will then push
on as rapidly as possible for tho Vnal
river, knowing that Steyn's men will
not light In tho Transvaal and that the
strength of tho Dutch forces will he
The Boer army Is well led and shows
no signs of nhandonlng tho struggle.
Its generals hnvo recovered from tho
panic caused by 1'aiirdeberg and have
demonstrated their ability to Impcdo
tho advance of tho British nrmy and
harass It on tho flank without exposing
their commnndos to serious risk nf

DEWEY ARCH GOES SLOW
Now York, Aay 3. Secretary Nlchol
of tho naval arch fund says that It will
ho a long time boforo the 1500,000 that
must bo In hank before tho reconstruc
tion of tho Dewoy nrch Is attempted
can possibly ho raised.
"Tho interest Is dead," ho said, "and
thcro is no dcllnlto plan In view to ro
vlvo It. Tho exccutivo committee has
talked of various Ideas but nothing has
presented Itself which seems worthy
of indorsement. Tho Democrat benefit
at tho Metropolitan Opera House netted
n fund to which the expenses of tho
commission will ho limited. Not a
dollar of tho subscription will be
touched. The subscription money has
been plnccd In bank and should It ha
decided useless to continue our task
every subscriber will receive back his
contribution to tho last penny. Not
only thnt, but fifty members of tho
committee have guaranteed that the
subscriptions shiiil remain Intact. If,
thereforo any money should ho ex
pended In addition to the sum received
through the benefit, those fifty men
will, If necessary, pay it themselves."
NEW EDISON INVENTION.
New York, May 2. Thomas A. Hill
son and hit) colnboicrs have been en
gaged for somn time on experiments
looking to the production of tlexlhlo
tubing which Bhnll render posslblo tho
use of compressed nlr. Such tubing
must bo nble to resist high pressures.
Recently such n tuho has been pro
duced In England by the use of special
Germany hns also found a way to
make a similar article. Kdlson, who
has been at work on tho problem nt
tho Instanco of capitalists Interested
In compressed nlr, expects to have a
way of his own soon. Just ns Edison's
nttcntlon was called to this apparatus
a man walked In upon him nnd laid
before him what seemed to ho a rod,
perhaps two feet In length, whoso cir
cumference was In spiral convolutions
suggesting nn elongated screw, it was
constructed out of nn ordinary brass
tuho which by tho employment of ma
chinery Invented In Germany was con
verted Into this screw-like or (luted
tube. This (luting of the tube gavo It
almost tho flexibility of rubber with
out Impairing Its strength.
Kdlson discovered another quality In
this spiral tube which not even tho In
ventors of It knew It contained, lie
put the tuho to his lips nnd blew
through It. It gave out sounds as clear
and pure ns that which come from n
(Into and ns Edison continued to blow
that sound was followed by another nn
octave higher. Edison discovered thnt
by Increasing tho pressuro of breath,
this tube gave four distinct llutc-llke
tones. It dlil not require skillful con
traction of lips or tho employment of
tho tongue. It may lead to tho manu
facture of n new musical Instrument
Change In Cuba Tnrltf.
Washington, May 3. Tho War De
partment hns decided that the revised
Cuban tariff shall go into operation
June 15 next. Tho Official Gazetto of
Havana will on May 15 begin publica
tion of tho repertoire, Indicating the
extent and character of tho changes
made In the existing tariff schedules.
It Is stated that tho purpose of tho re
vision was to make good grave defects
In tho Porter tariff which experience
hns developed. The principal fault
which Is sought to ho cured Is the In
adequacy of tho Porter tariff as a reve
nue producer, and It also Is sought In
tho rovlslon to stlmulnto tho Introduc
tion Into Cuba of American goods,
which hnvo so for not been received In
tho Cuban markets to anything llko the
extent anticipated when the original
tariff was nrrangegd.
Child wlcl Rcprlinnnilcd.
Washington, May 2. Secretary I.oug
today made public tho correspondence
which hns taken placo between tho
Navy Department nnd Captain Chad
wick respecting tho published Inter
view In which tho captain Is reported
as severely reflecting upon Itcar Ad
miral Schley. Tho Secretary's letter
was written today nnd wns forwnrded
only after tho Secretary had 11 confer
ence with tho President on tho subject.
Tho department's notion In tho caso
Is a severe reprimand, and It Is note
worthy that Its letter has been made
public, n fact which In ltsolt ndds to
tho weight of tho punishment adminis
