It was found impossible to tiring the
Hritish auunuuition reserves to the firing
line. Many Hoers wearing Kod Cross
badges were actually employed in serv
ing out ammunition.
In connection with the many nccusn
tions against the Hoer indifference to the
laws of war a letter published in t'apf
Town asserts that before the Transvaal
ultimatum was sent the Itoer leaders dis
cussed the policy of using the white ting
when driven into a corner in order to de
ceive the British commanders, ami this
policy was generally approved.
It is reported that the mobilization o)
n seventh division will be ordered at
Aldershot as a preparation for emergen
cies. The Morning I'ost complMins that there
ore plenty of cavalrymen available at
home, but that parsimony prevents tlieii
being sent to Ninth Africa, where they
are urgently needed.

A special dispatch from l-Istcourt cen
sures Itear Admiral Sir Hubert Harris,
commander in chief of the t'ape of Good
Hope and West African siiuadrons, fm
his delay in sending Captain Scott and
Captain Luinbton, with guns, to Lady
smith. "It is notorious," nays the corre
spondent, "that only at the last moment,
on Oct. 30, while a decisive action was
pending, did Captain Lambtoii of tht
Powerful arrive at Lndysmith. A week,
a day, a few hours might, and I doubt
not would, have saved the situation and
delayed the investment, if it had not end
ed the Itoer attempt."
A Modder Kiver special, dated Thurs
day, Nov. a, says:
"The Hoers occupy a strong ridge about
six miles north of this point. Today the
lancers came into contact with them."
The Daily Mail has a dispatch from

which says, "All well."

A Visit to Sulu.
CHICAGO, Dec. ti.-Mrs. Laura
Schwichtenberg, who has been in thp
Philippines ns inspector of the National
White Cross hospitals, is in Chicago, en
route to Washington. Mrs. Schwichteu
berg left Washington last April. She
traveled through the islands where a
white woman had never been seen by
many of the inhabitants and accompa
nied (ieneral Rates and his staff on their
visit to the sultan of Sulu. She returned
on the United States ship Solace via
Guam and Japan. "The visit to the sul
tan of Sulu was interesting," said Mrs.
Scliwiclitenhorg. "The sultana was dress
ed iu a black waist and a white hhirt,
uud her head was wrapped in a eil. She
wore a white glove, too large, on the
wrong hand, and with this hand she
greeted us. The children, who were nude,
evidently thought we had painted oui
faces, so they took rice flour and covered
their faces. Their black bodies and flour
pasted faces made an amusing picture."

ntnte hoard of election commissioners, sit
ting us a cunvavsing board, linished its
work at 4 o'clock yesterday nfternoon.
and today at 11 o'clock the member will
sit in the state senate chamber ns a con
testing board to hear arguments in the
cases of 11 contested counties. The first
great light will come up on the question
of whether or not the board has the right
to go behind the certificated returns tiled
with the secretary of state by the differ
ent counties. Upon the issue of the ar
gument on this point will rest the name
of the next governor of Kentucky. On
the face of the returns now on file with
the committee Taylor has a plurality of
12,8,'IM, his total vote being 1IK1.714.
against I'.O.Itai for Ooebel. If there is to
be no "going behind" the returns the
hoard will have no option but to issue the
certificate of election to Taylor. If the
board decides that it has the power to
go behind the returns there Is no telling
who will receive the certificate. It will
depend entirely upon the results of the
contest to be decided before the board,
uud the matter will without doubt be
carried for final settlement to the state
legislature which meets next month.
The proceedings were enlivened by
(tovernor Itrndlcy. who made an address
to the board regarding the statement that
he had brought soldiers into Frankfort.
Itrport of Secretory of Interior
Slliiwn tllll. .11 It I'eiinloliiMK.
WASHINGTON. Dec. 2. The annual
report of Secretary of the Interior Hitch
cock, just made public, while summing
up the work in all the bureaus, is of spe
cial interest by reason of its statements
regarding pension matters. At the close
of the fiscal year there were 001.51D pen
sioners, n decrease of 2, 105 during the
yeiy. The average annual value of nil
pensions was $132.74. The Spanish war
probably will increase the pension roll
during the current fiscal year.
The secretary concurs iu the recom
mendations for legislation providing that
no pension be granted to commence prior
to the date of filing the claim, for an
early revision and codification of the pen
sion laws us the numerous amendatory
laws and decisions have made the whole
system a labyrinth of laws and legal
opinions. Secretary Hitchcock urges leg
islation to definitely construe the act of
June 27, 1800, relating to widows' pen
sions. FIGHTING YAQUIS.

It is now 40 years ago since our father
