Something like an old-time crowd
tamed out at Athletic park, yesterday
afternoon, and sizzled through a hot
afternoon, watching the inspirited and
rejuvenated Apostles pound the life and
hope out of the remnant of the Pride ot
lowa. It was a good audience and em
braced many oMhe one-time favorites;
"but," said Manager Watkins, "it was
not yet what it should be. though we
cannot get out. the people as long as we
play over there." The crowd was coat
less and vestless,and the sun beat down
on the diamond with torrid fervor, but
such weather is conducive to good ball,
and irood ball it was. A stocky, red
faced young fellow named Hart, who
had shut out the Apostles Friday, ap
peared again in the box, loaded with
confidence and several new curves; and
when, in the third inning, St. Paul still
had no runs, and Murpiiy three times
found a hole in his bat. the aforesaid
Hart smiled pityingly and the crowd
wept. But the Apostles had a Roland
for the Oliver of the lovvans, and when
the somber-visaged Meekin, with the
same hole in his right stocking and a
patch of court plaster on his finger,
struck out five out of a possible six in
two innings, the audience felt comfort
able. The name was what is known to
the technical report as a pitchers' battle,
in which Meekin had a shade the best of
it. mainly througn his superior support.
Hart's one error, after two men were
out, gave opportunity for a single and a
home run, scoring four unearned runs.
Meekin struck out nine men, and got
two put-outs and four assists. Hut for
his wildness in the first 1 inning, Dcs
Moines would never have reached third
base durihjr the game.
The contest opened with a burst of
speed for the Apostles that did not last
long. Murphy got first on Flannagan's
muff off Patton's assist, and was sent to
second by Daly's single to right, but
Abbey flew out, O'Brien forced Murphy
at third, and Sweeney struck ont. Dcs
Moines did better. Patton got first on
balls and was caught trying a steal.
Traftiey got four balls a minute later,
took second on a passed ball and scored
on Stock welTs long single to left. But
that ended the run getting by the
lowans. They played with a dash, and
Clare's foghorn incited them to superior
effort, but the solemn curves of Meekin
were entirely "too technical" for them.
Three clean singles and two scratch
hits— slow ones toward third— were
their total batting results.
In the meantime, it much resembled
a shut-out for St. Paul. Finally, in the
fifth, after Broughton had struck out,
Meekin and Burks got bases on balls
and Murphy sacrificed them along one
base. Burks was caught off second,
and when the ball went out there
Meekin quietly trotted in with the first
run, which was due to Burks' clever
running. In the seventh there was a
circus. Hawes led off by striking out.
Broughton got a base on balls, second
on a wild pitch and third on Meekin's
sacrifice. With two men out, Hart
fumbled Burks' hit and Broughton
scored. Murphy then followed with a
singlf and Daly pounded the ball over
the fence, chasing in two runs ahead of
him. In the eighth Hart threw O'Brien
out at first and then hit Sweeney with
the ball. Ilawes hit safely to left, and
Traftley's wide throw to second and
Broughton's hit in the diamond scored
the last two runs. Score:

over the lot and keeping the Minneapo
lis fielders constantly on: the run chas

single, yhoch slugged a double, Morris
sy rapped for a single, Jantzen
was given a base on balls, Al
berts got first on Carroll's muff
of his fly, Welch made a
triple, and singles were made
by Poor m ••in and Dalrymple, who came
to bat for the second time, the whole
yielding seven runs. In the Minneapo
lis half Carroll got first on being hit by
the ball, and scored at Alberts' wild
throw to catch him on second. In the
second, Shoch's double, Alberts' triple
and si wild throw by = Esterquest . gave
the Milwaukees two runs. They got
another in the fourth on singles by
Shoch and Jantzen and Alberts' double.
In the sixth Jantzen and Alberts added
two to the score by making a long home
run each. In the Minneapolis: half of
the sixth Hudson hit safely and was
sent home on hits by Esterquest and
Myers.; The seventh gave Milwaukee
two wore. ,on > pa Iryjn pie's, triple and
singles by Shock, Morrisay and Al

A COAIi RATE WAR
Through Minnesota Predicted by
There is every prospect of a lively
war in Western coal freights, according
to the Chicago Herald, though some of
the "coal and wheat exchanges" meu
tioned by that paper will create amuse
ment in Minnesota. Lake freights, it
says, on coal to Lake Superior ports
have always been from 15 to 25 cents a
hundred less than to Milwaukee and
Chicago. From Like Superior the Chi
cago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha,
a proprietary line 5f the Chicago &
Northwestern, has a road running down
through Southwestern Minnesota to
Sioux City, which connects with the
east and west lines of the Chicago &
Northwestern and enables that road to
supply its branches all through the two
Dakotas with cheap coal, while the Chi
cago, Milwaukee & St. Paul has no line
from Lake Superior, but is compelled to
tret coal at Milwaukee or Chicago. The
rate from Milwaukee is 25 cents a ton
higher to such points as Mankato and
Pipestone. in Minnesota; Sioux City, in
lowa, and Sioux Falls, in South Dakota.
Now, the lines of the Chicago & North
western and Chicago, Milwaukee & St.
Paul parallel each other a few miles
apart all over Southern Minnesota and
the two Dakotas. Where the farmer can
get his coal the cheapest determines to
what point he will haul his wl e^it. lie
hauls' a load of wheat to town and re
turns with a load of coal, and owing to
its lower rates the Chicago & North
western has been getting the wheat.
Accordingly.in the meetingof the West
ern Freight association Thursday, the
Milwaukee & St. Paul gave notice of
its intention to make the same rates on
dock coal to Western points in the ter
ritory mentioned as are made from Lake
Superior, which would still leave that
section and the Chicago & Northwest
ern from 15 cents to 25 cents a tou ad
vantage. This move was stoutly op
posed by the Northwestern, but the
Milwaukee & St. Paul refuses to stand
the discrimination against its lines
any longen and will put in
the Lake Superior rate from
Milwaukee. In retaliation the North
western threatens to reduce the rate on
coal from the mines on its line at Sprints
Valley, from which the same rates are
made" as from Chicago. Col. W. L.
Scott, of Erie, a director in the North
western, is also one of the two principal
owners of the mines at Spring Valley,
and it is charged that he has a contract
with the Northwestern by which that
road practically agrees to protect him
from all competition. In case the rate
from Spring Valley is reduced the Mil
waukee & St. Paul will meet it. All
the lines from Chicago to the West and
Northwest are so interlocked with
trunk lines and branches that when
this point is reached general demorali
zation in Western coal rates will neces

ONLY ONE RETURNED ALIVE
Volunteer Telegraphers In a Yellow
BOLD BREAK FOR LIBERTY.
How One of Them Ran a Train Through
a Quarantine at the Risk of His
Own and Others' Lives.
New York Tribune.
The lives of the telegraph operators
of a few years ago were full of thrilling
experiences, few of which have been
told in print excepting in their craft
publications, which the readers of daily
newspapers never see. At the Tele
graph club the other night a number of
"old time" operators entertained each
other for hours with tales of their early
adventures. One of them as told by the
operator himself is of peculiar interest
The narrator was one of the best known
experts in the service of the Western
Union Telegraph company in 1878,
when he was employed iv the Philadel
phia office. He is modest, and even at
this late date will not consent to the
publication of his name in connection
with the story, which, as he related it,
is as follows :
"You all remember how the yellow
fever raged in the South in the summer
oflß7B, and how terribly fatal it was
among the operators. The mails to the
North were all quarantined, and the
only communication between the two
sections of the country was by wire.
When the operators began to die there
were grave fears that communication
would be shut off altogether, leaving the
South without means of indicating its
needs to the generous North. Such au
event would have been like lowering a
black curtain between two sections,
leaving the South to struggle alone in
darkness with the plague. The scourge
was at its height in September, when
the deaths in Memphis and New
Orleans ran up into the hundreds daily.
Every day an operator would die. and
every day the wires became more
crowded with urgent appeals for aid.
Early in September all Northern
operators were informed that the com
pany would like a few voluuteers to go
South. No appeal was made by the
company, but hints were thrown out
that volunteers were badly needed.
"in response to these hints seven men
formally offered their services. Two
were operators in Pittsburg, two in
Cincinnati, two in Philadelphia and
one in Boston. The Pittsburg and
Cincinnati men were first called upon
and were sent to Memphis. All four
fell victims to the fever and died
within a week after reaching
their destination. The rest of the
volunteers were badly scared. At
least, I know that i was, and I was glad
that I was the last on the list. The
other Philadelphia mau was ordered to
New Orleans, and went on his way as
far as St. Louis, where he was arrested
on a trumped up charge by his mother,
and was sent to jail to keep him from
carrying out his dangerous mission.
The sixth man was then ordered from
Boston. Ho came as far as New York,
and at French's hotel the night he ar
rived he met some Southern people who
told him some blood-curdling tales of
the horrors of the plague. A pisrtol
was accidentally discharged in his
room that night, and the flesh wound
made in his leg by the bullet
rendered it impossible for him to travel
further. Gen. Supt. John C. Hinch
man telegraphed to me in Philadelphia,
asking if I was ready to proceed to |
New Orleans. Nobody ever knew how
tempted I was to back out. The c»ld
sweat absolutely dropped from my head
as I considered my reply. Finally I
determined to go, let the result be asi it
might, and replied to Mr. Hinchman
that I would start the following night.
I took a train out into the country that I
night, and bid my parents good-by.
The next morning when my father lefl
me at the train he said he hoped, but
did not expect to see me again on earth.
Bidding His Friends Farewell.
"Returning to Philadelphia, I found
awaiting me the passes made out in the
name of the Boston man, which, accord
ing to my instructions, would carry me
as far as Milan, Term., where other
passes in my own name would be
handed to me. A lot of my friends went
to the station to see me off, but it was
an extremely melancholy party, and the
result was that 1 did not start in the
best of spirits. Nothing unusual oc
curred until I reached Bowling Green,
Ky., which was then the northern limit
of the fever line. We had passed any
number of refugees around Louis
ville. But there was no one traveling
toward the South. I was ,'alone in the
train south of Louisville, and when it
reached Bowling Green I was ordered
off the train, which was then put under
the car sheds — abandoned. When I
learned what had been done I hunted
upthedispateher,showed him my passes
and insisted that the trainj sched
uled to go South should proceed. It
was not until headquarters had been
appealed to that he would send a train
out, and only then when he got peremp
tory orders to do so. The train
was soon made ready, and I
got on board, the only passenger
bound into the fever country.
We had, besifles an engine, a combina
tion baggage and smoking car and two
ordinary day coaches. I was aa hungry
as a bear, but nothing could be bought
at Bowling Green, and, although 1 had
had nothing to eat since leaving Cin
cinnati the day before, there was little
prospect that 1 would be able to secure
anything for another day, because, as
the trainmen told me, no hotels or res
taurants on the way South were open.'
We started South, therefore, with my
mind in not a very pleasant condition,
and I began earnestly to regret having
started at all,
"The day we left Bowling Green was
atrocionsly hot, and 1 suffered intensely.
At first I ousued the windows, but a
brakeman told me how the fever germs
would rush in »if the windows were <
allowed to remain open, and on the im
pulse of the moment I closed most of
them. This brakeman was a delightful
companion. Knowing that I was going
South, with big chances of dyinir, he
consoled the weary hours of thejourney
by telling me how many cases of
fever had occurred among the refugees
in that very car in the last up
trip. When he told me that a sick wo
man had died in the seat in which we
were, I opened the windows once more,
preferring to take chances of letting
germs out as at least equal to those of
letting others in. The trainmen all
took a hand at telling me horrible stor
ies of the suffering from fever on the
last up-trip, and when they saw that I
would not be discouraged. they confessed
that they had tried to lrighten me away
from the terrible country into which I
Nothing Bat Crackers to Eat, ,'i ''
: ""The first; town we reached V where
there was ; much suffering was Paris,
Term. .As the train pulled into the sta
tion,' the only people - there : to ■: meet it
were naif a dozen cadaverous negroes.
I was almost famished and had to have
food of some kind ; at once. The only
things that I could obtain which were
lit to '■ eat were /a i few - crackers. We
passed through town after town without
seeing more than a dozen human beings
in all, and they.: were negroes. The"
whites : were all ; dead, or had
fled: tow the North. v. ?We rani
into a shotgun quarantine iat . Milan,
and I had a heap of trouble to get food
and my new passes. fAs yet r : that town
had escaped the fever, and a quarantine
had been established against both '■< the
North and South, as the fever was then
rasing on both sides. When I stopped
at Milan a fellow leveled his gun at rae T
and ordered me back into the car. I got
back quickly, went to the rear of the
train and got off on 1 the opposite :: side;
-.When ? the guards • were - not looking
I dashed into I the telegraph S- office
at ;': the depot, presented -• my ?'.'; cre
dentials and a received ..: my passes.
There : was ; a country store -on a little
hill about a furlong from the depot,
where 1 thought crackers and cheese
might be procured. No one was guard
ing the road toward the store, and I
made a run for it. I had almost
reached the store, wheu 1 heard a
shout, and, turning, saw that the guards
were coming for me. I grabbed a paper
bag, threw some crackers into it out of
a barrel, seized a plug of tobacco and
threw down a silver dollar in
payment. As the two gunners were
toiling up the steep hill in front of the
store I went out of the back door and
stood there until I heard them enter.
Then 1 made a dash for the hill and ran
down it. 1 was back on the train again
before ray pursuers realized it. We
waited until the St. Louis train came
along, over another road, and then took
its Pullman car upon the rear of our
train. This car had one passenger, Jed
Thomas. Jed wa& a good fellow, ac
climated to the South, aud I owed much
afterward to his advice.
Stopped By Ropes and Guns.
"At Medina, Teun., the conductor
told us that there was a shotgun and
rope auarantine at Jackson, nine miles
below, and that the train would not be .
aliowed to go through. We were now
in deep trouble. If we went South we
would surely be quarantined in the
woods above Jackson, and if we stayed
ou the train at Medina we could
get nothing to eat. Jed aud 1 walked
over to a cotton gin, and found that
we could get a bed and have
supper and breakfast. Going back
to the train we arranged with the con
ductor that he was to run down to Jack
son, see how the situation was, and re
turn for us early in the morning. But
he failed to do so. At 9a. m., however,
three negroes came down the track on a
hand-car. We bargained with them to
take us down to Jackson. We found
the train side-tracked about a mile and
a half above the town, in the woods.
The conductor had a fearful story for
ns. Both the engineer and the fireman
had been attacked by the fever the
night before, and bad been laid on beds
made of the cushions of the seats in the
smoking car. The authorities at Jack
son would not allow the train to
proceed, and ropes had been stretched
across the track. The mayor and a
committee, the conductor told us, had
visited the tram the night before, agree
ing to send food and medicine to it, but
positively refusing to allow it to pass
either way. No food or medicine had
come, there was much need of ice and
fresh water, and the trainmen were in
a state of panic. Men armed with shot
guns, the conductor said, were at the
Jackson depot to prevent auy one from
cutting the" big ropes which hung from
posts on either side of the track. The
sick men became delirious, and our sit
uation was really terrible.
"All the morning I was busy medi
tating on a scheme for onr relief, and
finally 1 spoke out in confidence to Jed,
who at first pronounced it impracticable.
Id was in short, that I was to act as eu
gineer, and run the train through Jack
sou at such a speed as to destroy the
obstructions when, or course, we need
not fear the shotguns. Jed shooK his
head and said it was too dangerous; we
might all be mashed up, and be
sides, how could I run the engine?
1 told Jed that my uncle was the
master mechanic of a big railroad,
that he had had me in his shops almost
from childhood; that 1 fired an engine
for six months, being compelled to give
it up because I was not strong enough
for the work, and of my experience
with all sorts of engines since then.
Then he thought the gcherae was more
feasible. We took the conductor into
the plan, and he consented to it on con
dition thai I prove my ability to handle
the engine by running the train back to
Medina for more wood and water.
First, I said, I would walk down
as near Jackson as possible to
observe the number and charac
ter of the obstructions. Jed went with
me, and we got close enough to see that
the two hawsers over the track hung
about twelve inches above the rails.
This pleased me. for I saw that the
ropes would not get under the wheels,
but would slip up over the pilot of the
engine and against the front end of the
boiler, which naturally would gradually
stretch the ropes and snap them or else
break the posts to which they were fas
tened. Besides the ropes there was a
big tar barrel between the rails ready
to be set on fire at nightfall.
Crashing Through the Barriers.
'•It was 5 o'clock that night when I
had steam up ready to move. Jed was
helping me fire, and he worked at it
like an old hand. Somehow I felt per
fectly safe on the engine, and when I
ran the train out upon the main track I
was as confident as if I were working a
telegraph key. We backed up to
Medina, filled up with wood and
water, and by cutting in on the
telegraph wire at the abandoned
depot I learned that there were no
trains to fear to the southward. We
waited till dark, ami then started South.
The sick men had cushions all around
them to break any shock at the obstruc
tions at Jackson. I ran slowly tor a
mile and then began gradually to in
crease the speed of the train. We had
no headlight burning, and my idea was
to go through Jackson so fast that
nothing could stop us. Five miles
from Jackson the woods are ex
tremely thick, but the track is as
straight as a plumb line. When we en
tered the level stretch I put on all the
steam possible, gradually easing the
valves to reduce jolting. The woods on
either side now flew past like blacK.
screens, while myriads of sparks sprang
from under the driving wheels. Three
miles away we could see the tar barrel
burning between the rails. I looked at
Jed. He was as white as a ghost, his
jaws were set, and his eyes were on the
flames in the distance.
'• "Keep the wood going in lively now,'
I cried, and tried to open the throttle
wider. The miles went by in minutes,
and we were almost upon the obstruc
tions before I realized it.
'•'Look out; Jed!' I cried, bracing my
feet against the boiler. I was con
scious of seeing flying in the
darkness ahead, of a sudden jar, of a
sheet of flame and untold millions of
sparks enveloping us, a pfWse, and
then the train shot on into the
darkness beyond the station as if fired
from a cannon. We must have covered
miles of rail before I thought to shut on!
steam. As soon as I had done so
1 looked around for Jed, whom 1 found
with his arms ou the fireman's seat and
his head on his arms. He had been
thrown against an iron bolt, which had
cut his forehead severely. He was un
conscious, but a cup of cold water from
' the tender, when thrown in his face,
revived him. He was not seriously
hurt, and was soon in jolly spirits.
! Stopping the train, I went back and
found that all hands were uninjured.
Then, after lighting the headlight, we
went on more leisurely to tne end of
the section. The officials were aston
ished to see a youth with a high hat run
the train in, but they made a great deal
of it afterward. With the exception
that the stack was sprung forward a
trifle, the engine was unhurt.
Great Mortality Among Operators.
"That was the most exciting episode
of the jonrney South, but there were
others thrilling enough to satisfy any
one. When the train reached Holly
Springs, Miss., where the fever had
been so terrible that no one seemed to
be alive in the town, the moon was
shining beautifully clear. No other
light was visible in the place. On one
end of the platform of the depot was a
huge pile of ready-made coffins, the shad
ows of which fell upon a row of Howard
association relief boxes. As the train
rolled quietly in shrill screams were
heard uttered by some one behind the
depot. Then a woman, evidently young,
but whose silver hair was tossed by the
wind, and whose clothing was in tatters,
ran up to the train, still shrieking
wildly. An old man with a lantern told
us that the woman had been crazed by
the loss of her father, mother, brothers.
sisters and husband, all within a week.
It was at this place that a young oper
ator died at her instrument just after
sending an appeal for relief.
"Just seven days and nights after
leaving Philadelphia I reached New
Orleans. It was late at night when I
got there. No hotels were open and no
street lamps were iigbted. Jed took me
with him to a lodging house he knew.
The landlady and Jed talked alone
awhile, and the lady then came to me,
saying there was no fever in her house,
and I might sleep there safely. I was
disturbed during the night by the
sound of heavy feet overhead and in
the halls, but on the whole slept fairly
well. In the morning, being in good
spirits, Jed told me that four dead men
were taken out during the night. 1 was
told that there was no fever in the
house so that I might get a good night's
rest. It was all right any way, he said,
as every house in the city had had fever
in it, and so I found when I tried to get
a boarding house. I remained in New
Orleans through the epidemic and es
caped the fever. Out of twenty-one
men in the telegraph office nineteen
had the fever and "thirteen diea. I was
the only one of the volunteers who
went South and came back alive."
Condition of Trade on the Bourses
of the Continent.
London, July 6.— Discount was firm
during the past week at 3X(S4 per cent.
Ou the stock exchange business was
very dull. Many dealers were absent
arter Thursday. Speculative business
was nowhere, and the public also held
aloof. Syndicates possessing masses of
new securities keep offering them to an
unresponsive market, thus adding to
the general depression. Foreign secur
ities were flat under continuous sales on
Berlin and Paris account, the week's
decline in every kind averaging %
per cent. Argentine Cedelus lost 3
per cent. Central American bonds
yesterday closed very heavy on bad re

Nashville ordinary, Northern Pacific,
Wabash preferred and Denver pre
ferred, % each; New York, Ontario &
Western and Denver common, % each.
Decreases— Mexican Central firsts and
Erie preferred, 1 each ; Alabama & Tex

were dull; Middles Brothers lost K.
Copper shares were steady and Nitrate
shares were weak. In view of the de
fault in the payment of the Kansas City

mittee has been formed to protect the
bondholders. The week's issues include
the Mexican Investment corporation,
tho American Phosphate corporation,
and gold bonds of the Lehigh Valley
railroad to the amount of $6,000,000.
Pakis, July o.— During the week past,
on the bourse, prices were irregular
and weak. Three percent rentes show
a fall for the week of (Joe. At the same
time Credit Foncier shares have risen
32f, owning to buying after the large
bear sales during, the recent troubles
connected with the investigation of the
institution. Panamas were sJ£f lower
than during the preceding week, their
nominal price being 36f. The execu
tion of the plans for the Panama canal,
as originally proposed, is now finally
abandoned. The shareholders, how
ever, continue to hope that their inter

Societe dcs Metaux shares have been
bought at 70, owing to a report that a
syndicate would purchase the factories
of the organization, although they have
been vainly offered twice at auction.
Beklin, July 6.— Only a limited
amount of business was transacted on
the boerse during the week past.
Realizations were the dominant feat

on London, 20.38; long exchange on
London, 20.15; private discount, 3. The
continued fall in the prices of
iron and steel gives rise to fears
of a trade crisis. In spite of a
decreased consumption, the production
of-these metals proceeds unchecked,
although the rolling mills are preparing
to limit their output. A ton of puddled
raw iron costing 80 marks in December
last, when the trade was booming, is
now sold at 68 marks, and the tendency
is daily lower.

A. South African Jack Sheppard.
Pall Mall Gazette.
An interesting account is given by
the Johannesburg Star of the police
chase after McKeon, the bank robber,
whose achievements in the matter of
perpetrating robberies, escaping from
jail, and eluding the police, entitle him
to rank wiih the notorious Jack Shep
pard, and whose regard for his clever
black horse reminds one of DickTurpin.
In the hurried start after McKeon,
when he escaped from the Pretoria jail
(says the newspaper in question) the
mounted police forgot to take handcuffs
with them. Further, McKeon had
friends all along the route. He was
born in Casutolaud, and every Basuto is
his fast friend, even to Mama. Conse
quently, when the police inquired along
the road of Basutos if they had seen
two men pa 3» on horseback, they invar
iably said that they had not.
McKeon's love for his famous black
horse, now at the mounted police bar
racks, was extraordinary. The police
had to have three remounts before they
could run that horse down. Two of the
mounted police sighted McKeon and
Cooper far ahead of them. They
spurred on after them, thinking that
they would brine the fugitive to halt on
the steep bank of the Khenoster river.
What was tueir surprise, however, to
see McKeon leap his horse down the
twenty-foot bank into the river, swim
across, and when he saw Cooper's horse
Would not foilow, come back,and,reach
ing out, pull Cooper's horse down by
the bridle and drag him through. One
of the policemen had a rifle and resolved
to take a long shot. When McKeon saw
the smoke of the pun rise he and his
companion drew their horses apart, and
the bullet passed between them.
Shortly after, McKeon drew his horse
up, leaped down, removed the saddle,
and stood patting his horse on the head.
The police approached and he surren
dered without a word, giving over his
two revolvers with the remark that he
was enriching the government with re
volvers, for this was the sixth they had
had from him. He said lie gave himself
up because he did not wish to kill his
horse. Cooper handed over his revol
vers, too, locking rather glum.
McKeon said he knew he would re
ceive twenty-five lashes, Dat he would
only stay in jail eight months, when he
would once more say good-by to the au
thorities. He did not know why they
had given him twenty-live years, for he
had not murdered any one or stolen a
sheep or ox. Robbing a bank of their
surplus money was no crime. The po
lice were entirely taken off their guard,
and consequently at daybreak the next
morning the birds had flown unobserved
by them. McKeon has since been re
captured at Ladybrand.
