Natal, eridcntly making- for- the Laing8
Nek Pass into the Transvaal. Buller
has fought a successful engagement on
the Blggersbttrg road in order to flank
the Boers1 -positions. The flanking
movement was successful and the Boers
are said to he retiring. Buller is ex-,
ported to reach Dundee today,

counted for hy Roberts' Bwceping'
advance. The absence of advices from
sources concerning the Vaal defenses
eeraomlnous. It is reported the Free

seems veil founded. There is report
that the British advance will make no

London, May 14. Bloemfontein,
which was formerly the healthiest town
In South Africa, is now a vast hospital.
It is reported that there are 2,500 cases
of enteric fever alone. The nights are
bitter cold and deaths from exposure
are beginning to be reported. None of

number of Transvaalers who retired
from Kroonstadt; the highest estimate
is 10,000. From all accounts the re

roir Miners Injured by a Blast at
the Spray Shaft.
At the Spray shaft about 10 o'clock
Saturday night four miners were in
jured by a blast. One of them. John
Kronmari, may die; the, others escaped
with slight injuries.
The men had just blasted, but in
counting the reports they made an er
ror of one shot, and deconded just in
time to receive the full force of a de
layed charge as it exploded. John
Kronman was struck by a mass of the
flying debris and injured, It Is supposed
Internally. ' Lee Borgstrom was cut
about the face and had two of his front
teeth knocked out. John Williams and
Joo Ballinger were more fortunate, es
caping with but slight cuts.
The blame, if any blame there be,
would ordlnarly rest with the men; but
as it la Impossible always accurately to
tell just how many explosions occur
during tho blasting of a round of holes,
it must be placed among those Innum
erable accidents which are unlooked
for, and therefore unavoidable.
An article recently published in tho
minlnir column of tho Review, con
cerning the Montezuma Gold Mining
oomnanv. operating in the Hauchuca
mountains, was erroneous in some re
spects. Thereforo tho Review here
with submits an accurate account of
tho company's operations: The Mon
texumaGold Mining company, operat
ing In Hartford district, is making some
wonderful rovelations In the mining in
dustry of that section of Cochise coun
ty. Henry Hamburg, the general man
ager, displayed marked ability in tne
exploitation of the seven claims that
constitute the group, showing that he
is no novice in the business. All of the
claims have received somo attention,
hut tho principal development has been
confind to the Esperanza, from which
somo excellent gold rock has been
tdken, although but little depth has
thus far been attained. From
the Monte Carlo Mr. Hamburg recently
shipped seventeen tons of ore, worth
$45.80 per ton, making an aggregate of
6770.45 for the shipment. This was
choice ore, of course, but one can read
ily conceive the richness of the depotit
when such net returns can be had under
such expensive operations as freight by
wagon, and thence by rail to eastern
reduction works. Mr. Hamburg is
also owner of three patented copper
claims in Ramsey canyon, in the same
vicinity, which aro said to be very
promising. Prof. Blake, of the Uni
versity of Arizona, has made favorable
report on the copper group, and assays
of ore from the same gave returns of 4.r)
per cent copper and 30 onnces silver.
These properties havo development to
a considerable extent, and large bodies
of high grade ore have been uncovered,
giving assurance that it is not raorely a
prospect but the making of a good
mine, With capital to operate this
group of copper properties, there Is no
doubt but what the Huachucas would
boast ono of the best producers in
Jefferies Out With a Defi.
1?ew York, May 14. Jefferies says
that If Corbett is anxious for a return
battle he will fight him within a week,
while they are yet in condition. Jef
feries says he is willing to bet $10,000
to $T,000 on himself.
"Now," said the champion, "it is tho
general thing for a champion to bo
challenged, so I challenge anybody who
wants a battle. I am willing to take
on Shnrfcey, Fitzsimmons, Ruhlin Mc
Coy or Maher, any one or all five of
the live of them."
We can't set a high price on Colonel
Bryan's talk about putting a price on
human life. Ho and the rest of the
anti-imperialist faction havo virtually
been putting a prico on the Americans
in tho Philippins by encouraging the
Tagalog insurgeants. If Col. Bryan,
who, in his military days, never quailed
before tho camera , chooses to talk about
"cowards,,' who will dare rebuke so re
nowned a warrier? Yet we suppose
that there are Republicans as well us
Dcmoeruts'and men of other parties in
tho American urmy in tho Philippines;
and when the list of cowards is made
up, those men or imitations of men that
slobber over the r.rmed onomics of their
country and urge them on to shoot
down American soldiers will be found
to head it.

Building improved by
m'kinLey portrait in position
Commissioner Peck Made a Good
Talk and Was Gracefully
Paris, May 14. The formal opening
of the American National Pavilion at
the exposition took place today. From
the appearance of tho building, which
is not much of an artistic triumph, has
been improved by the erection of some
fine statuary, while tho interior has
been beautified with frescoes, draper
ies, etc. The central position in the
main hall is occupied by the big .por
trait of McKinley.
The ceremony of opening began at
2:30 p. m. when Mr. M. Pickard, com
mander general of the exposition, en
tered the building on the arm of Pnpf.
Woodward, assistant commissioner of
general of the United States. Sou'sa's
band was stationed near the entrance
and as M. Pickard entered played "The
Marsoillais." Commissioner General
Peck met the French commissioner at
the door and escorted hinr to the ro
tunda. In turning tho buildings over
to the exposition Mr. Peck said:
"The great nation which I have the
honor to represent rejoices to have
been permitted to ereot this structure
in the street of the nations. It is my
duty and pleasure to transfer to you
this edifice which Is a gift of the na
tion, gladly united with other nations,
in bringing here its products as a con
tribution to a great peace festhyilso
"I know my countrymen will join me
in the sentiment of vive Commissioner
General Pickard; vlve L'Exposltlon,
vlve L'France. Then Mr. Peck pre
sented Mr. Pickard with a gold key
pendant as a souvenir of the occa
sion." Mr. Plekard responded to Mr. Peck's
speech with a brief appreciative ad
dress and the ceremony concluded!
The Red Men.
Tho annual pow-wotf of the Improved
Order of Red Men of the reservation of
Arizona, came off Saturday afternoon
and evening and Bisbee was taken pos
session of by the sons of the forest. .
Tho parade, as noted in the columns
of the Review Saturday afternoon,
was a success in overy detail, the turn
out being tho most complete ever at
tempted by any fraternal organization
in Arizona. Something more than one
hundred Red Men were in procession
several visitors from afar joining to
swull tho ranks' of tho order, their
unlque'costumes adding to the gaiety of
the scene and contributing to the en
joyment of the throng of spectators
who,had assembled to witness the event
of the year in Bisbee.
After the afternoon's perform
ance a carefully prepared programme
was carried out at the opera house,
when addresses, songs, dances and
many entertaining specialties contrib

present to have been a success in every
