WilhlD Short Dittaneeof Pretoria - Boers Losing
Ttnlr Hem - Orange River State
LobAsm, Kay 19, 2 p. m. The tenor
of Lord Roberts' despatch of hist night
and the sews from Pretoria this morn
ing lead lh authorities here to expect
further Important nowa from the Brit
ish commander-in-chief, tinted, they
hope, from Johannesburg.
' The remarkable rapidity of Lord
Koborta' movements and the unwonted
mobility oS the whole British army un
der him have upset tho cnlculntlon3 of
the home observers as much as they
appear to have disconcerted and de
moralized Lord Roberts' Federal op
ponents. Possibly even now, he Is at
tho sates of Johannesburg, nnd It It
believed, ten days hence ol less, ho
ought to bo' demanding admittance to
tho Transvaal capital itself. If tho
Federals tvtr really Intended to "stag
ger humanity" by blowing up the gold
reef city and the mines, which Is doubt
ful, Lord Roberts may yet bo too quick
for them and arrlvo before they have
time to do any wrecking.
Tho majority of tho burghers will
undoubtedly be glad of an excuso for
saving the mines and they mny And tho
excuso in Lord Roberts' Bklll In hust
ling them out of one position after an
other. The effectiveness of tho British inva
sion of tho Transvaal Is further empha
sized by the news from Pretoria of tho
occupation of Zecrust and tho advance
on LIchtcnbtirg. Apparently the Brit
ish dragnet will be drawn through the
Transvaal as It was in a similar man
ner hauled through tho Free S'ute.

WRESTLE WITH THE PLAGUE
San Francisco Facing Possible Gen
Merchants Stirred Up -State Board Hakes
HTbreati-Judge Morrow Decides Against
Inoculation of Asiatics.
(Special to the Bulletin.)
San Francisco, May 29. No new
cases of plague or deaths from that dis
ease have been reported to tho Board
of Health today. The last case of al
leged bubonic plague was reported on
May 15. The Board of Supervisors and
the Board of Health will meet today
to determine what action they will take
In tho plague matter, In view of the
decision rendered by Judgo Morrow
yesterday, prohibiting the inoculation
of Chinese and Japanese residents.
Judge Morrow maintains in his de
cision that unjustifiable discrimination
has been shown In the acts of the
Board of Health. After quoting the
resolution of the Board declaring bu
bonic plague to exist In San Francisco,
also tho law under which the Board
acts the decision says:
"It thus appears that suitable pro
vision has been made In the city char
ter for tho necessary legislation pro
vldlns rules and regulations to secure
proper sanitary conditions in the city
nnd for the protection of tho public
health, but wo are not advised that the
Board of Supervisors has taken any
nctlon whatever in that direction, and
the resolution of the Board of Health
furnished to the court fails to dlscloso
tho method It has adopted for that pur
pose under the conditions it has de
clared to exist. Wo need not, however,
dwell upon tho manifest lnck of legisla
tive authority to enable, the Board of
Health to deal with this Important sub
ject. It is sufficient for tho present
purpose to mention tho fact as one of
the features of the situation to bo con
sidered In connection with the regula
tions which the complainant alleges
have been imposed upon him and other
Chlncso residents of tho city by tho do
The Judgo Quotes authorities to show
that Haffklnc's prophylactic Is not a
preventive. "It therefore appears that
the administration of Haflklno pro
phylactic to Chinese persons departing
from San Francisco has no relation to
the public health of the Inhabitants of
this city and cannot bo sustained by
nny such claim on the part of Its Boird
At a meeting of the Board of Super
visors a resolution was introduced nbk
lng the Board of Health to resign.
Tho Board of Health last evening
adopted a resolution Introduced by Or.
Baum declaring that thcro had been
nine deaths from bubonic plague in tho
district bounded by Broadway, Califor
nia, Stockton and Kearney streets, also
asking the Board of Supervisors to de
clare tho district Infected and to au
thorize tho Board of Health to quaran
tine the same. This resolution wns
fatten to tho tsoard of Supervisors, and
Wnkeflcld Baker, who represented tho
merchants, of whom a large delegation
wcro In attendance before tho Board
of Health, made a statement urging
prompt action to prevent tho Stato
Board of Health from carrying out its
threat of quarantining against San
r'ranclsco. Without dissent It was vot
ed to meet nt 11 o'clock today to con
sider the matter, when the Board of
Health, tho attorneys, who appeared

listened to "The Queen's Laco Hand

by tho Southwell Opera Co. at tho Or

ance is unusually sweet and attractive
and has all tho charm of girlish un
affectedness; thero is littlo doubt but
that there arc envlablo honors In store
for Miss Rosa, for any deficiencies now
which are duo wholly to youth and In
experience. Miss Ladd is an excellent nctress and
always wins applause; as the King she
specially deserved it; she looked and

one, gavo tho necessary support to tho
