(Associated Press Special.)
London, March 7. Field Mar
shal Lord Roberta has tele
graphed as follows:
"Osfontcln, March 7, 4:30 p. tn.
Our operations today promise to
bo a great success. Tho enemy oc
cupied a position four miles north
nnd eleven miles south ot tho Mod
der river. I placed General Col
vlllo's division on tho north bank
nnd General Kelly-Kenny's anil
Tuecker's division with cavalry, on
tho south bank. The cavalry divi
sion succeeded In turning the ene
my's left flank, opening a road for
the Sixth division, which Is ad
vancing without being obliged to
flro a shot up to tho present time.

alry, horse artillery and mounted

Colvllle's Ninth division, and tho
Guards brigade, under Pole-Sarew,
aro making their way across tho
river at Poplar's Drift, whero I

"Our casualties will, I trust, bo
fow, as the enemy was quite unpre
pared for being nttaeked by tho
flank and having their communi
cations with Bloemfonteln threat
ened." Hard Road Before Roberts.
(Associated Press Special.)
Now York, March 7. A dispatch to
the Trlbunt from London, says:
Tho extent to which General Jou
hert and President Stcyn havo suc
ceeded in massing their forces Is not
yet clear, but they aro covering Bloem
fonteln by a long defensive line on tho
hills south of the A.oddcr river.
Their tactics aro tho same as thoso
which were employed on tho Tugela
when the Dutch commandoes covered
a distance ot eighteen miles, but the
country Is less favorabio for their sys
tem of defense.
There Is no river in front ot them
and Lord Roberts has four mounted
brigades with horso nrtlllery, with
which their lino can bo turned. The
Seventh Division, under General
Tucker, has not yet been in action
and will probably have the brunt of
tho fighting If a battle precedes tho oc
cupation of Bloemfonteln, but It Is
nrobable that a frontal attack will be
avoided and that General French's
brigades will take a long circuit north
ward so as to shut off a retreat toward
tho Vet river.
The Dutch forces, If defeated, will
fall back upon Wlnburg, and tho high
hills between Ventcrsburg and Senckal,
between the Vet and tho Valsch riv
ers. This Is described by South Afri
cans as tho most formidable defenslvo
position In tho Free Stato nnd lateral
railways lead up behind it at Bethle
hem nnd Kronstad. The Vaal river Is
a long distance behind these command

London, Marcn 7. For lack of news
from Field Marshal Lord Roberts, at
tention turns to Natal. It is reported
that General Duller has pushed for
ward a forco along the Harrlsmlth lino
of railroad toward Van Rcenan's Pass,
using tho railroad freely for communi
cations. It appears that tho Boers intend to
ta..c up a strong position In tho Blg
gcrsberg range and contest the Glen-
coo Passes, although It hardly seems
likely that General Duller will at
tempt to forco theso for tho present.
His plans, however, aro kept almost as
secret as thoso ot Lord Roberts.
While waiting for the Important de
velopments which are dally expected to
occur In tho Freo State, rumors of
peace recur. Tho second edition ot tho
Times todny contains a despntch from
Capo Town which says there Is n cry
ing need for an explicit statement by
the British Ministry that nothing short
ot annexation Is Intended In "order
to dampen tho mischievous agitation
that is going on under tho pretext of
tho demand for peace."
Another list of tho casualties sus
tained by General Culler's forces from
February 14 to February 27 shows:
Killed, 123; wounded, 573; missing,
54. Of these tho losses of tho Innts
killings were as follows: Killed, 51;

that tho annexation had been accom

In tho betterment of any mcasuro that

Tho amendment precipitated a gener
al discussion of tho deposition of tho
Queen, participated ln by Jones ot
Arkansas, Pettlgrcw of South Dakota
and others. Pettlgrcw said ho was op
posed to the bill and to any effort mado
by this Congress to provldo a government-
for tho Islands. Ho favored
turning the Hawaiian Islands back to
their people, and permitting them to
make tho best ot them.
Quarles of Wisconsin followed Pettl
grcw, making his maiden speech In tho
Scnato in opposition to the proposition
to pay to the former Queen any sum
of money. Referring to tho dark pic
ture drawn by Pettlgrcw of the result
ot the nnexatlon of Hawaii and tho
acquisition ot other territory by tho
United States, Quarles said: "I had
thought that tho Senator from South
Dakota had exhausted his means of
chasing ghosts out of our Insular pos
sessions, but hero ho brings up a bo
gle, man from the Sandwich Islands
and sets him to gyrating before tho
