Our guns from Zwartskop and on the plain soon silenced the enemy's artillery, but repeatedly the Boors brought back their guns, put them into work" across the hills, fired a few rounds and then again changed their position. During the morning our gunners succeeded in blowing up the enemy's ammunition wagon upon Doorm Kloof.

After 12 days ofi. freedom from the disease, three deaths from plague" 'have occurred. Mary Kaaihuo, a Hawaiian.-Chinese woman, sick for several days, died Monday morning at 5 o'clock.

(5th, says: Little can be seen of General Buller's action, owing to the haze. It appears that the Boers have withdrawn their big guns from the hills here southward. A large force of Boers still remain and the garrison is prepared for a night attack. London, Feb. !), 2:!55 p, m. (Afternoon Service.) There is still no news of Gen. Buller's doings today or yesterday. A dispatch dated FrereCainp. Thursdaj', February 8, but probably written with the advanced lines of Wednesday, February 7, and sent to Frere by runner says: The forces of the enemy are on both our flanks and continue to render our position ex tremelv difficult to maintain.- London, Feb. !). The Times in an editorial dealing with General Buller'! task, says: The problem before him is unquestionably most difficult. W cannot be surprised or disheartened should he be unable to solve it with sue cess. His task is not merely to forco a way through the Boer lines to Lady- smith. That operation would be formidable enough, but it would bo easy compared with the feat he must prrform if largo strategical results are to follow his efforts. He must inflict a crushing defeat upon the Boer army unless lie can drjve into tlio uraivcnsoerg or otnerwise destroy mat army tlio relief of Ladysmith can hardly bo accomplished with safety. We await tliu issue of the operation with great anxiety. Nkw Yourc, Fb. (!.

Hacks and Saddle Horses AT ALL Vineyard Street, FROM HILO If San Fhancisco, Feb. 7. Samuel Parker has mado two trips to Washington from here during the past eight or ten weeks. In talking about prospective legislation for tjio islands and former Queen Liliuoka lani's attitude thereto, ho said last evening: "By next March or April I am confident Congress willgivo Hawaii a ter ritorial form of government. Mr. Dole is likely to be the first governor. Liliuokalani, who is over sixty years of ago and in rather poor health, is in Washington. She has submitted to the inevitable with good grace. Her best friends have advised her not to claim the crown lands. I firmly believe that the Congress and President McKinlcy aim to treat her fairly. Some satisfactory monetary consideration will bo given, or settled upon her. ''Under the monarchy there were set apart many acres known as crown lands. Under the regime of the United States they will be known as gov ernment lands and will be treated as such, Much of this land is held by leases entered into by people before Uncle Sam assumed control. These leases will, I think, have to be respected. There will be, in all probability, legislation looking to the right of lessees to dispose of land subject to the government's rights. l,I have spoken to President McKlnley and many of the Senators on the subject of the elective franchise for tlio natives. I think the natives should have the right to vote. I hope, in fact I believe, tlio McKinlcy Administra tion will take that view of the matter." a. No Plague On Hawaii. On Friday night, Feb. Hi, Dr. Wood returned to Honolulu with the cheer ing news mat more are no. luriner plague cases at Hilo. To an Advertiser reporter he said: "The case of Mrs. Serrao was very suspicious, m met, i uenovcv it was a case of plague. I have no positive proof that it was plague, but it cer tainly looks that way. "There has not been another suspi cious ease in Hilo since the death of Mrs. Serrao, nothing whatever occurring while I was there. Mem bers of her family who lived in the sanio house, and were even quaran tined there, were not taken sick; all are perfectly well. "How do I account for the infec tion? Well, from my investigation, I thiaik it must have come, from the sewer. Tlio storc-iront is directly on a level with Walanuenue street, while the rear of the store extends over the mouth of the sewer which is somewhat lower than the street Back of this store is wlierpthe store keeper kept his horse aud harness, and Mrs. Serrao went barefooted out in this place; if there was-any infec tion caiiL'ht bv her, that is where she got it. Her husband denies very strongly that she ever went bare footed, but from my investigations 1 am very sure that she did. "Evidently there was no infection in tho liou.se they lived in, for none of the people became ill there before or after sho died. The house, togeth or with the store and contents, were ordered burned before I left, and pre sumo the order has been carried out by this time. I did not consider that the other members had been in quar antine, althongh the Hilo agents of the Board had kept tho people in the residence. I have had them all put under special quarantine for fifteen days." Kilo, Feb. 10.
