Up to tho present not one of the ncicn

jseems to have been no fighting since Fan

Daily Mall's Bloemfontein correspondent
Mates that 1,SM Boers are still on the hills
near the waterworks and tint Colillle is
shelling them from Bushman's Kop. whilo
Trench Is maneuvering to cut off their re

Bloemfontein not only from the north, but
from the cast. It is also by no means cer

nclphborhood of Paardebcrg. Toward tho
north they have been temporarily driven
back to Brandfordt.
Tho great strength of the Boers lies In
their ability to quickly recover their spirits
and. being an army of Irregulars, they aro
not po sensitive to defeat as disciplined
troops. The Ladj brand episode 5s a very re
markable illustration of this.
Only ten dajs ago Generals Grobler and
Olivier were hurriedly retiring alonp the
border of Basutoland. pusucd by the Brit

be ready to cut oft their retreat to Win

by the troops and citizens of Bloemfontrii,

Bushman, April 2. Hearing that the
waterworks were deserted, the correspon

discovered that this man was an American,

never during his whole life had he wit

shown by the British Saturday, nnd lie as
Farted that not only himself, but the whole
Boer army, were profoundly touched with
admiration at their gallant behavior.
It appears that tho Boers never doubted
their ability to capture tho wholo British

that tho present force vias detached from

CITY OF BELLEVILLE
IN A PREDICAMENT.
I'olice Service Also Withdrawn
lieeairse the Treasury Can
not Meet Demands.
The city of Belleville, 111., was In dark
ne. s list night from early In the evening
until 11 o'clock. The water supply was
tu'ned off .ill night and, with the exception
of two- polUo Captains, tho police fone
vi. is, technicallj-, not In the emplov of the
el j". In the hours mentioned those citl
zi ns compelled to bo on the streets were
forced to grope their viaj- as best thej
could. Aside from tho lights In the btisl
n'sg district, the darkness was Intense. The
situation was made still more alarming bj
t'le fact that the patrolmen were no longer
ou the p.ii- roll and that those who worked
did so from a sense of dutj. Tho turning
ft of tho city water supply was not felt
so keenli, but it was, nevertheless, an In
convenience which might have been tho
most serious of ail.
Never before In the history of Bellcvillo
had the cltj- been In such a predicament.
Old residents Lost nisht recalled niaiiv
municipal tllfllcultles. but none could re
member a time when the city was quite
so embarassed as it u.is in the hours, of
This stato of n Halts was the result of a
shortage of funds in thu City Treastlrj-. As
thero was no munei- ou hand to defray tho
expenses of tho poliio fore-, city lighting
and citj- water, Major l''rcderlck: was un
able to guiranteo the ncccssnrj- disburse
ments. Somo time ago there was an injunction
filed in Uelleiille bv an individual citizen
to prevent the Issuance of city script in
times of shortage In tho City Troasurj-, as
the rates of Interest wore regarded as ex
tesslie. The action Is still pending in court
and doubt is entertained as to thu outcome
and eonsequintly tho cltj- olllclals wero not
in .1 position to tide over the treasury ern
barassment. The situation is still moro
serious, as there ls at present no way out
of tho illffleultj'. No appropriations have
jet been passed, thero are no funds on
hand and it Is not known when the strain
will bo relieved, and on this account tho
city could not asoumo the responslbllltj- of
promising fo meet the demands.
After several hours of d irkness the elec
tric light company voluntarily turned on the
current In relief of th- i It v. but did so
upon their own responsibility. Superin
tendent Mitchell of the Waterworks Com
puny was seen l.ito last nicht. lie said th it
tho Major had nntllied him that the city
would not stand for the expense of the serv
ice. Tho Police Department and the citj
llchtlng are on a simll ir footing.
Thero ls much speculation as tn tho out
come of the situation. It Is. not publicly
known wh re lo lav the bknn. and as a re
sult the situation Is being everywhere ls
cused. Meanwhile the departments named
are being kept up on the eh irltj'-lnstallraont
The reason why stove dealers use polish similar to
EZ Liquid Rust
Proof Stove Polish
Is because they must have a polish that "does it
easy." Stove dealers' polish is made in paste form,
which they dilute with gasoline or benzine as
needed for use. E-Z is the same kind of polish,
only already diluted with turpentine and ready for
use. It must always be used on a cold stove.
All polishes do bettor work If stove la cold. All dealers.

For somo months higher criticism ha3
been the subject of a controversy between;
Doctor Jc.so rjowman Young of tho Cen
tral Christian Advocate of this cllj- ainL
tho editor of the Oninh l Christian Advo-
cate. in which tho Methodists of this city '
have taken great interest. The hlglior crit
icism was Inveighed against by ths
Collego of Bishops of the MethodLst Church
nt a recent conference In New York Cltj
The lilshops declared that higher criticism
was .hurtful to the Methodist relision.
Many Methodists believe as the i:i"hop
do. and tht ru are- others, more pro2rf.sive.
who believe the- "reverent" higher criti
cism is bcreflcl.il rather than harmful t
Doctor Young is one of the progressive;
Methodists who bolleio that It will do m
harm to have some light shed on the au
thorship of the different books of th- l!U
ble. The editor of the Omaha Christian Ad
vocate Is one of the conservative I is-. Il
believes that Doctor Yoim-: has t iken tlio
wrong stand, and ha.s criticised him thfoimh
th columns of his a- iper. It is said that
others la th Iow.o. and Nehraska no Ter
ences, besiibs tho tdllor of tho dm ill i
Christian Advocate, have taken the inittfr
up. and tint an oianRoiist by thp name f
Munhull distributed m irked circulars ie
cuing Doctor Young of holding vieiit that
wero Inimical to tho best lntt rests of the
Methodist Church, and of advocating "de
structive" I.ib!L-al erltlcNm.
Matters were brougnt to a focus when
Doctor Young was nttackeil at the recent
conf. rence In Kansas Citj. In deffti of
his r,1sllln. I"Ctor Young .said, af that
time, that he voiced tho convictions of tho
aggressive and modern elemt nt In his de
nomination, and that his attitude, ufileh
is" in no sense raillc.il or heterodox, ls com
mended by manj- of the safest leadi rj in
Methodism, who realise that a critical sen
son of theological ferment Is on; that new
questions jre being brought forth jfar by
j ear; that new meinoqs aro Dcing used to
test and study the scriptures, ami that
nianv people are bolru: led to fancy that
tlii'sc thlmrs aro dangerous to the filth. ,V
Doctor v.ounu then told tho ministers w5f
attacked him that ho bdlcved tho Iliiilo has
no reason to fear or hum thefulbst inves
tigation, and that tho new mctho Is aro
servlmr slmplv as fresh agencies for devel
oping the truth of tho Hiblo.
