IS CONSIDERED SAFE
Joubert's Chances For Taking
the Place Vanish.
THREE ATTACKS BY BOERS
No Doubt, From tho British Polit of
View, That the Situation In Natal Is
Rapidly Improving With the Arrival
of Fresh Troops.
LoNDoy, Nov. i3.-The simultaneous
attacks on Ladysmith, Mafeking and
Kimberley, which were opened Thurs
day, manifest full recognition by the
Boers of the fact that every day lessens
their chances of a successful onslaught
on any of the three British strongholds.
General Joubert's chances of reaching
Pietermaritzburg can be said to have
vanished. This is already reported to
be admitted by Colonel Schiel, the Ger
man officer commanding the Boer artil
lery, who is supposed to have been
largely the author of the Boer plan of
pV.paign and who, in an interview, is
alleged to have said:
"The Boer intention was to have cap
tured ?ietermaritzburg and then to dic
tate terms. Bdt all hope of accomplish
ing this must now be abandoned."
There is po doubt that fro.-i the Brit
ish point of view, the general situation
In Natal is improving. Nearly 8.000
troops reached South Africa during the
last 48 hours and by the end of the week
1.000 more will be added to the British
strength in Natal. This will probably
be pushed forward to Estcourt, bringing
the British force there up to 20,000 men,
and making a general attack on Lady
Bmith by General Jcubert very hazard
As the cavalry and artillery belong.
ing to General Methuen's division wiil
not have arrived by then, the advance
from Estcourt may be delayed.
But If it is deemed essential to open
communication with the be'eagured
town at the earliest possible moment,
General Methuen, it is believed, may
decide to replace the regular cavalry
and artillery by the Natal and Uitlander
mounted forces and the naval guns, in
which case, it is claimed. it ought to be
possible to accupy Colenso and stretch
out a hand to General White by Mon
day, though, it is added, the course to be
followed by General Methuen must nec
essarily be dictated entirely by official
knowledge of General White's position
The experts hope General Methuen
will be able to await the concentration
of the whole division before advancing
and thus have a better chance of dealing
a tellifig blow to General Joubert's
in army, which, it is asserted, will
b caught between two British forces
and coinpelled either to fight a general
action or retire.
The only official dispatches from the
front made public today contained a list
of the officers and men wounded in the
engagements around Mafeking, Kim.
berley and Ladysmith.
A special dispatch from Durban, Na
tal, dated Thursday Nov. 9, evening,
"Native runners who have just ar
rived here report that the Boers suffered
a severe defeat at Ladysmith this morn
ing. The Boer guns were silenced after
four hours' fighting, during which the
Boer losses were heavy. No details
have been received."

"In conversation with Admiral Schley

SEQUEL TO COURTMARTIAL.
Lieut. Bamford Weds Mrs. O'Brien
In Washington City.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 11.-An interest
ing sequel to the well remembered Ro
meyn courtmartial at Fort McPherson,
Ga., in the early part of 1&97, occurred
in this city Saturday last, when Lieu
tenant Frank Ellis Bamford, Fifth in
fantry, was married to Mrs. Mae Ken
These two persons played as promi
not a part in the trial of Captain Henry
Iomeyn, now retired, as that officer
himself. In fact, it was Captain Ro
meyn's caustic comment on the alleged
improper conduct of Mrs. O'Brien and
Lieutenant Baniford that led directly
to the assembling of the courtmartial.
Lieutenant Bamford was engaged to
Miss Nina Romeyn, and while the be
trothal still existed the lieutenant paid
court to Mrs. O'Brien, wife of a fellow
officer, and at whose house he lived.
Captain Romeyn did not think Lieuten
ant Bamford's conduct the proper thing
for an engaged man and so expressed
himself freely. connecting the officer's
name with that of Mrs. O'Brien. Lieu
tenant O'Brien hearing of this accosted
Captain Romeyn at dress parade one
afternoon and demanded an explanation.
Captain Romeyn responded by knock
ing the junior officer down.
The courtmartial followed and Cap
tain Romeyn was convicted of conduct
unbecoming an officer and prejudicial
$o the good of the service, but was al
lowed to retire without punishment.
A short while ago Lieuter.ant O'Brien
died after a number of escapades and
many narrow escapes from courtmartial.
After her husband's death Mrs.
O'Brien came to this city to live, where
she has a number of relatives. Lieu
tenant Bamford, who has been stationed
at Omaha, Neb., came on to this city
last week, secured a license, and on Sat
urday afternoon was wedded to Mrs.
O'Brien at her residence. 721 Nine

from the wreck as their strength grew
weaker, and drowned.
