month of Jniumry of this year, has just
Rained n heaping amount of fame In
a Held quite away from his system of
clarification so well known on the
plantations of nil cano countries. Mr. I
Dcmlng sends to his friend, E. D. Ten-'
ney hero, nnd others, an account of the
rcmarkahln, cruise of the gasoline
launch, Zeta, owned and sailed by Mr.
Dcmlng nnd carrying the Hag of the
Southern Yacht Club.
The launch was
built lu nine weeks under the. dlree
tlon of Mr. Doming to replace one lost
Sho Is 47 ft. 8 Inches on tlio load wa
ter line, 9 feet beam, and draws about .1
fpet of water aft. Her timbers are of
steamed oakt and tho ribs are placed
exceptionally closo together to add
strength to tho formation of tho hull.
Her planking la Hi Inches thick, and
there aro only one or two joints, tho
majority of tho plnnks running from
tho stem to tho stern. The bow of tho
Zeta Is almost straight, hut there Is
enough curvo to mid, beauty to tho trim
lines. The sern has a clean run and
Forward there Is a strong rail and
aft there was n rail, but tho sea off tho
Florida coast carried It and tho yawl
boat overboard. Tho cabin house of
the craft extends avross tho beam of
tho craft, leaving only a few Inches on
each sldo for a footing. In fact, there
Is no deck on tho sides of tho cabin,
and only a small deck forward of tho
pilot houso and aft of tho cngino room.
Tho sides of the cabin aro almost en
tirely made of glass, which gives
plenty of air niui light o the apart
In tho ciuluo of the Zeta beginning
In July of. this year and ending four
months later, there was traveled tho
distance of 0,217 miles, with many ad
ventures and hair-breadth escapes.
The course was up tho Mississippi to
St. Louis, thenco through tho Chicago
canal to Chicago, across tho lako nnd
Into tho Erio canal, thenco to UufTalo,
thenco to tho Hudson river, thence to
New York city, thenco to Chcasapeake
Uay, on sbuthward to Key West, Char
leston had been visited nnd a stop was
made at Savannah. Finally the. launch
thutslastlc cheers nnd a salute, of five
steamed Into Lako Ponchartraln nnd
to her old moorings, very llttlo worso
for tho voyage and greeted with en
guns. Mr. Demlng Is a devoted yachts
man, nnd has certainly done, more than
falls to tho opportnlty of tho nvcrago
amateur sailor man. His whole crow
consisted of engineer and cook and his
passongcrs wero wwe and two daugu

proud of his achievements nnd Joking

might take, tho notion sometime to

London, Dec. 10. Tho grave situ

Though scarcely any announcement of
recent yenrn hns had so much hearing
on tho future of Europe, in spite of tho
uninformed Comment In some Eng

mentis of jingoistic sophistics, for
homo consumption. In Vienna, which Is
in closer touch with Hcrlln than any
other capital, Count von Ilculow Is
Interpreted ns Hinging down tho
gnuntlct to Great lliltnlu.
Tho Neuc Frelo I'rcsse, which has
personal connection with tho Foreign
Minister of Germany, declares that
Germany is determined to obtain the
greatest possible advantago from tho
South African complications, and
ndds: "The 'cool mention or Euglnud
dissipates all apprehensions caused by
Emperor William's stay nt Windsor,
and it Is not lmposslblo that England's
difficulty mny, in certain circumstances

New York, Dec. 21. A dispatch to
the Tribune from London, says:.
Th tie Is practically no fresh news
from the scat of war. Further details
of the battle of Colenso continuo to
dribble in, but ou tho whole they do
not add much Information.
The Post's correspondent afllrms
positively that tho Doers captured ten
British Held guns. Col. Duller, com
manding the Devon regiment, with
three olllccrs nnd forty men were sur
rounded nnd nil wero taken prisoners
by the Doers whllo looking for wound
ed men under a Hag of truce.
According to tho Chronicle's cor
respondent tho llrltlsn mounted Infan
try r.nd Irregular corpi, with two bnt
tcrlcs of uitlllcry, managed to takn
the Colonso road bridge and eventually
cross tho river, but the Hocr rlllo lire
prevented them from pushing on, nnd
the battery was abandoned. Seeming
ly tho gnus wero lost on the north sldo
of tho Tugeltt and If so, there Is llttlo
doubt that they wero iccapturcd.
Tho 'I Imes says that pcoplo who
know the country consider the Doer
position the strongest in Natal.
Mr. Uurlelgh In tho Telegraph says
tho Ilocrs nro digging more trenches
nearer tno river nnd employing a creu
sot gun to shell tho Hritisn camp.
riicio Is still no news of Lord Mcth
'uen. Ills commouiilcntlons hnvo been
,cut or else tho censors nro determined
'to allow no information ns to his do
lugs to reach the outer world. Some
sensation hns been caused in diploma
tic circles in St. Potcrsbuig by a state
ment that tho llrltlflh ambassador
there had u private audience with tho
Cznr In connection with events In
Tho chief cause of tho uneasiness
which brings back the shadow to Eng
lish faces Is a suspicion that tho Lady-
smhh garrison Is short of ammunition
and Incapablo of a prolonged defense.
The War Olllco docs not numit tnnt
Midysmlth Is In serious danger or
anoit of ammunition, but the rciiBor
ihlp somehow hns allowed these
alarming leports to reach England.
Tho censor, it is apparent, sometimes
rails asleep or Is drugged by too can
Jld and too Inquisitive friends.
Dispatches from Colenso aro still
coming In, but overy ono bears ovl
denco of rough treatment from tho
.'Cnsorsnlp. It is Impracticable cither
to reconctlo theso disjointed, frngmen

Tho most important of these rcinto to

Englishmen nro anxious to know
whether Buller's army, with n numeri
cal superiority in guns and with n -higher
degreo of skill In tho scrvlco of

classed by tho Boer artillery. There
aro n hundred details which tho pub
lic is eager to learn nbout tho chief
battle of tho war nnd overy corres
pondent Is gaged and bound and shut
off from clear, descriptive work. Tho
English press Is much moro docile nnd
submissive than tho American press
would be in similar clrcumstnnccs, but
