— Redvers Eu'ler left England with his plan
* c*siP a *?r* clearly outlined. His army corps
,^5 toV.arch through the Free State and Sir
George White was to hold the enemy in check
by re-rr-air-ir-g quiet in La mith. Lord Wolse
l»r durir.f: iiw? first month of the war had one
coismeiu to repeat to his friends, and that was:
•TThite has only to stay still and wait for Bui
ler to begin his maTh." These were Aldershot
conceptions based upon peace •-raining, without
reference to the realities of military defence and
n.ctcai warfare with the Boers. Sir Redvers Bul
fcr abandoned his plan of campaign when he
reached South Africa, substituted a march to
Mrxlder Hirer for the Bloemfontein-Pretoria pa
rade, and after dragging the bulk of the army
crips and 'Warren's division into Xatal has put
two thousand men out of action in two unsuc
cessful attempts for the relief of Ladysmith.
Lord Mcthuen's attack upon Magersfontein, in
which the Highland Brigade advanced in column
♦creation., was planned as a sham fight would
ifive been on Salisbury Plain without thought of
ta actual hostile force anywhere in the field.
Coionel Long's recklessness in carrying his guns
r*yir.d the reach of his supporting infantry was
£ sfcara battle manoeuvre which would have
brought upon him a reprimand even at Alder
thot. There have been feint attacks, reconnois
sx.nces in force, column formations and drill
bcok tactics from the beginning to the end of
the campaign, and the Generals have never
seemed to realize that they were not manoeu
vrimr "a Salisbury Plain, but were leading men
order Sre in battle with the Boers.
It iE impossible for Americans who remember
the training of their own Civil War to think of
soldiers like Grant and Lee attacking strongly
jatrenched positions and conducting turning
movements after th- manner of Lord Methuen
anfl General Bailer. They would not have fought
thrf-e battles -without scouting or reconnoissance,
as Lord Methuen did. and then have flung their
srny against a strong position like Magersfon
tein in a frontal attack where the resistance was
greatest without an attempt at manoeuvring;
end if defeated they would not have remained
idle in camp for weeks wailing for reinforce
ments -which were not In reserve. They would
net have retired from Colenso or Spion Kop after
& single futile attack, but would have dug their
•way up to the enemy's positions, making closer
approaches day by day, and gradually envelop
ing them and rendering them untenable. The
British staff has allowed the Dutch to do all the
manoeuvring and all the digging, and to choose
every battlefield and defensive position; and
when there is an impasse it orders the troops
back to ramp to play football and cricket until
there are reinforcements for another frontal at
tack. It is Aldershot generalship that has
brought reproach -upon England and created a
crisis in the fortunes Of the empire. I. N. F.

them, came from the distant parts of the country

generally a lively. Interesting and sarusms; day for

manner of treating an execution, my 'governor'
?h?*2J£ U *° amusing story The little town in
the Northern State from which he came was the
county seat, and there one day was to occur a
hanging It was. I think, the last execution that
occurred in that state, capital punishment having
since been abolished there. When ••■ fatal day
.or the accused man came the people began
to arrive early from far and near they came, and
as the hour for the execution drew near the st-eets
were jammed to suffocation. The execution was
scheduled for noon, but at 10:20 the heavens took
on an ominous look and by 11 a drizzling rain had
Degun which bore strong promise of becoming a
steady downpour before the day had waned The
people began to grow anxious, but the majority
hung on. At this juncture the Sheriff went to the
condemned and said: 'Look here. Bill, the whole
county has turned out to se« you turned off and
now there's a rain started and every one's anxious
to get home. They'll most of them make it all

they wait until noon the roads will be in bad con

to do tne chores, and that's serious. You're to be

make much difference to you. while it makes a lot

SUNDAY XIGHT MUSIC.
The memory of the oldest opera go?r in town does
not run back to the time when Rossini's "Stat/at
Mater" was not a feature of operatic concerts in
New-York and London. Perhaps, also, the young
est patron of Mr. Grau's Sunday night concerts
will not live to see the work fall into decadence, so
far at least as he and his class are concerned.
Many critical puns of large calibre have -en let
loose against it. but neither frontal attacks nor
enfilading fires seem to have damaged the c. work.
Perhaps because it fits so admirably into the
scheme* of operatic concerts. . This*- concerts have
an audience all their own; neither Philharmonic
nor Oratorio nor Chamber concerts know those
who make It up. Therefore It was not surprising to
find Gotmod'B "Sing, Smile. Slumber" accepted with
signs of approval last night as a proper afterpiece
to the dramatic scene "Abseh<Mil!eheri" from Bee
thoven's "Fideiio" and to cote that the applause all
evening had that sustained quality which the po"t
lauded, which made it fall like rain upon the just
and unjust alike. Yon Biilow said that the r.>'ir.:i
was an "opera in ecclesiastical ssents." and
the definition is so far from inept that It explains
why before Mapleson was at the Academy people
fond of the opera flocked to hear Rossini's what
d'ye call it sung by operatic singers.
Last night its potency was demonstrated again.
It was put on for the second part of the pro
gramme at the Metropolitan Opera House concert,
and long before the singers drew attenticn to the
spectacle of the weeping mother beside the cross
there was not a seat left empty in the house, and
precious little room in which a human being- could
stand. Mme. Nordic^ participation in the per
formance doubtless had something to do with the
attractiveness of the affair, but the old work has
demonstrated its drawing power before, and there
was no surprise to see the phenomenal evenings of
the season duplicated In the matter of attendance.
The performance was decidedly excellent, and in
parts brilliant, three of the tried and true singers
of the company— Mines. Nordica and Manielli
and M. Plani;oii— being concerned in it. It was an
other of the many queer commentaries called forth
by the operatic situation that Mr. Grau could find
no tenor in his company" to sing the solos, and had
to turn for them to local church singers. He first
engaged Mr. Evan Williams, but he took ill on
Saturday, and .-• the last moment Mr. Aloys
Werner, of the choir of St. Francis Xavier'3
Church, was secured. His is a light voice, and his
companions outclassed him.

TEE FLOWXESR OF ETOLVTIOX.
IT HAS NOT YET TAKEN THE FIGHT OUT
OP THE DEVELOPING SPECIES OF
THE. EARTH'S CRUST.
In the old days— the young days or the world—
when the earth was inhabited by creatures with
names which were too long to be mentioned In the
papers, there was constant warfare among them.
There were no nice questions of Justice, of political
rights cr of alliances of race or lr.te«st. Every
creature's tooth and claw were against his neighbor,
and the talk was only of the survival of the fittest,
with an occasional truce when natural selection
became the fashionable topic at the 6 o'clock muds.
Even to-day men who have had their share of both
say that the only real things in the world are love
ar.d war. That is an eternal principle, no doubt.
The love of those days was natural selection, and
the war was the survival of the fittest. Those are
eternal principles, too. In the Infinitesimal space
of time which is now passing the Boers seem pretty
fit; but that is neither here nor t'-ere.
The point is that there was fight in every bone of
the creatures of that carboniferous, or odortfer-(
ous, or some other kind of lferous, day. Not one
of them proved to be the fittest, In the end. Fitter
creatures came ard we*ht on surviving- and natural
ly selecting, till tho animal kingdom reached Its
highest development thus far conceivable, the
curators of museums. And still they fight, and
what do they find to fight about but the very old
bones of the very old beasts that were fighting as
far back as even the curators of museums can go.
Dr. J. L. Wortrran has resigned the position of
curator of the departments of vertebrates of the
Carnegie Museum, in Pittsburg, because) he dis
agreed with the Rev. Dr. W. J. Holland, the curator
of the museum, about some bones from Wyoming.
One of them said that they were the bones of a
hrontosaurus, and the other said that they belonged
to a dipsodocus magniScus. and naturally one mu
seum could no longer hold them. {The curators;
it would hold the bones.)
It is said that a body of men of science cannot
ret on peaceably any more than a sewing circle, but
it seems to be the way. Nobody can help being re
minded of the society upon the Stanislaus, which
Eret Harm's friend Truthful James described so
eloquently years ago. That was unfortunate, too,
and the trouble was substantially the same as that
between the two curators now. For it will be re
membered that the society got on beautifully for
six months.
Till Brown of Calaveras brought a lot of fossil
bones
That he found within a tunnel near the tenement
of Jones.
This was the beginning of that spirited and mem
orable meeting. It was a quiet enough beginning.
Then Brown he read a paper, and he reconstructed
there
From those same bones an animal that was ex
tremely rare.
And Jones then asked the Chair for a suspension of
the ruler
Till he could prove that those same bones was one
cf hi? lost mules.
Could any man of science be expected to bear
this?
Then Brown he smiled a bitter smile, and said he
■was at fault;
It seemed he had been trespassing on Jones's fam
ily vault-
It is all very well for Dr. Watts to tell about
birds agreeing in their little nests, but the bron
tcsaurus at:d the dipsodocus matrniflcus and the
curators never coul'3. The affair on the Stanislaus
went or. till
Abner Dean, of Angels, raised a point of order,
when
A chunk of old red sandstone took him in the
abdomen.
An* ■■ kept on getting worse and the society never
met .- tin and its museum was all used up for am
munition. Evolution goes on, it Is true, but slowly,
slowly.
\R STRIKE IX BATAXA EXDS
THE iIEX ACCEPT THE EMPLOYERS' TERMS
AND RETURN TO V.'OEK.
Havana, Feb. 11.— The strike of cljrarmakers
was settled this morning. The men asked on
what conditions they rould return to work, and
the masters repli*^ that they could return en
the conditions existing- before the strike. This
reply they accepted, and on Tuesday they will
return. The cost of the strike to the manufact
urers has been practically nothing. The strikers
themselves have lost ?10t),000.
The "Heraido" tells Samuel Gompprs to return
to the United States, declaring that he came here
with the intention of creating disturbances.
A prominent Havana lawyer, who numbers
among his clients many sugar planters, says that
a great scarcity of labor exists in the provinces,
and that many estates will probably be forced
to stop grinding In the Province of Plnar del
Rio $'.i 30 a day Is paid for ordinary manual
labor in the tobacco fields, and this industry
cannot stand the expanse. He suggests that
the means of communication between the labor
centres be cheapened, and that immigration be
unrestricted, although this would be too late for
the present crop. As a remedy lor the evil the
"Dia." of Caibarien, suggests compulsory labor.
It deciares that there are hundreds of loafers In
the country- towns, gambling and otherwise
wasting their time, and that It is they who are
making the greatest outcry against the Span
iards. Genera] Rivera, Minister of Agriculture,
discussing the subject, observes:
Undoubtedly there is ■ scarcity of labor. -This
is due to the large demand far it. and this, in
turn, -s due to the fact that the tobacco crop Is
the largest on record, and to the further fact
that more land is being cultivated than ever he
fore in all parts of the island. Moreover, we
must take into consideration the large number
of men who have been drawn from the country
districts into the town* In the expectation of
employment in sanitary work and in the con
struction of new lings. Notv that the crop
is here and they are needed in the country dis
tricts, they are not disposed to return. Then, al
lowance must also be made for the presence of
numerous Spaniards, recently arrived, who ac
cept the first offer of work they get, however
small the pay. because the wage is much better
than they would receive in Spain.
In m; opinion, to allow unrestricted immigra
tion ivould really create a new problem. Even
assuming that this should bring abundant
labor, it would also bring a large number of
paupers and criminals. A better plan is to go
slowly and to encourage the right sort of im
migrant?, modifying regulations rather than
abolishing them altogether.

ing municipal organization is very defective.
The commission is instructed to make a
thorough study of the administrative and finan
cial conditions of Havana, and to design a char

MAS CATHOLIC CHURCH. IX JER
SEY CITY, PASSES AWAY.
Th© Rev. Dr. Louis Seaez. the venerable pastor
of St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church. Jersey City.
died yesterday morning. Old age was the cause of
death. He had been in feeble health for a lon*
time. The funeral will be on Wednesday, and
Archbishop Corrigan. who was prepared for Ma
first communion by Father Senez. will probably de
liver the panegyric.
Father Senez was born In Paris. France, in ISI3.
His parents were devout Catholics. After an
academic course the son entered St. Sulpice Col
lege, where he was prepared for the priesthood.
He was ordained in 1840. Aiaoni those •who took
holy orders at !*-ie same t.me was the late Bishop
THE REV. DR. LOCTS SEXE7.
Pastor of St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church. Jer
sey City, who died yesterday.
De Goesbrand. of Burlington. Vt., who died a few
months ago. leaving Dr. Senez one of the oldest
Catholic priests in the United State?.
Dr. Senez came to this country a short time after
his ordination, and presided over a, parish in Cin
cinnati. He displayed his energy and executive
ability by building a handsome church and a
parochial school, When cholera assumed an epi
demic form in New-York City in 1549 Father
Senez left his Ohio charge, hastened to New-TorJc
and offered his services to Archbishop Husrhes.
After the epidemic had abated Father Senez was
assigned to the charge of old St. Patrick's Cathe
dral, at "Washington-st. and Central-aye., J^wark.
He added to his reputation as a church builder by
having: erected a more imposing edifice. "While he ,
was in charge of the Cathedral one of the altar

KENTUCKY CAPITAL QUIET.
STATE TROOrS NEARLY ALL DEPART—
REPUBLICAN LEGISLATORS TO
RETURN TO-DAY.
Frankfort. Ky.. Feb. 11.— All day long troops
have poured out of Frankfort on special train*.
and to-night only the soldiers from Covingtoa.
Newport. Lexington and ilorgantown are
camped in the Capitol Square. The departure
of the troops was the only feature in the politi
cal situation In Frankfort to-day.
Governor Taylor remained quietly In the
Executtve Mansion, and did not visit his office,
giving himself a day of rest, of which he stood
greatly in need. Adjutant-General Collier said
this afternoon that only a few companies of in -
fantry would be kept on duty here for ■ 6hc.r:
time, to do police work around the Capitol
Square and guard the public buildtags. They
would, he said, interfere In no way with the
actions of the members of the Legislature. Ac
cess to the legislative ha would be as free
and unrestrained as it was before Governor
Taylor issued the proclamation declaring Frank
fort in a state of Insurrection.
All the Republican members of the Legislature
were expected to arrive from London late this
afternoon, but word was brought that they had
spent the day in an excursion to Cumberland
Cap. and would not for the most part arrive
until 10 o'clock to-morrow morning. Only six
of the Republicans came in on the night train
from London.
No intimation has N»»>n received here as to
whether or not the Democratic members of the
Legislature would adjourn their session at
Louisville and oorr.e to Frankfort to take part
in the general session. It is b*>liered here, how
ever, that they will do so. probably by the latter
part of the week-
London. Ky., Feb. 11.— exodus of legislators
to Frankfort besran this morning, when prob
ably half of -m departed. Those remaining
spent the day on an excursion to Cumberland
Gap, returning to London in the evening, and
they started for Frankfort at midnight- The
opinion was generally expressed by the members
that no trouble will occur when the Legislature
ii convened at Frankfort to-morrow or here
after.
SUBSTANCE OF CINCINNATI PETITION.
TO BE ARGUED BEFORE THE UNITED STATES
COURT ' DAT
Cincinnati, Feb. 11.— Last night Attorneys
Scott, Haggar and Maxwell, who are to ap
pear for the Democrats before Judge Taft to
morrow in the cases of the minor Kentucky
State officers, were Joined by C. F. Chenault.
secretary of the Kentucky Board of State Elec
tion Commissioners: AJcnzo "Walker, the stenog
rapher at Frankfort, who was arrested by Gen
eral Collier for taekinar notice of an injunction,
on the offii-e dior i>f Governor Taylor, and others.
Meantime, the plaintiffs filed their petitions in
the United States Circuit Court of Appeals after
." o'clock. The more important of the petitions
cites at length wherein th- Goebel election law
conflicts with both the Federal and State consti
tutions, especially in the manner of appointing
Election Commissioners and vesting them with
judicial powers.
It holds that the charges of tissue ballots and
intimidation were false, and that similar thin
ballots were not thrown out where they favored
the defendants. It is alleged that Commissioner
P<"-yntz was not eligible oti account of using
railroad parses, and Commissioner ..ton on ac
count of being a member of the Nelson County
Beard, and that all Commissioners were preju
diced as partisans. The petitioners allege that
republican government was impossible under the
Goebel law, and charges are made against vari
ous county boards or election under that law.
i/u'ir.i.v FIXASCIAL XEWS.
Mexico City, Feb. 11.— A Chicago firm ha«
taken a second issue of the State of Jalisco
bonds to the amount of JI.POO.OCO In gold, the
proceeds of which are for the improvements in the
city of Guadalajara. Th« same firm some time ago
took $1,500,000 in bonds of that State. The taxable
property in Jalisco has largely increased of late,
principally by careful new assessments, and the re
sources of the Government are corresponding!
augmented.
The Finance Department has given a charter for
a bank in the city of Campeche. with a capital of
JHOO.COO, which may be Increased as the business
warrants. Campeche and the whole peninsula of
Yucatan Is prosperous as never before in its history.
Planters are making money by the sale of sisal
fibre at cood prices in the United States, and many
works of public improvement hare been undertaken
in which native capital is largely interested
A project is on foot in England for a direct line
of railway from this city to the Yucatan penin
sula, with extensive lin*»s into British Honduras
where th» British Government is disposed to riv»
a subsidy. Th- line would place Yucatan in im
mediate connection with the federal capital and
would open up a fertile agricultural region. It Is
favored by the Government.
