I.—Members of the ex ecutive committee of the National Antt- Trust Conference, to be held In Central Muslo hall February 1, held a short con ference today at the Sherman house. M. L. Lockwood, of Pennsylvania, chairman of the committee, afterward Issued a state ment, In which ha said: "Every day the anti-trust sentiment throughout the country is becoming In tensified, and everywhere the cry Is going up, 'What can be done to save the coun try from the oppression of tke trusts?" The mission of the conference Is to answer this cry. To the political economists and statesmen of the conference, rather than to the politicians of the country, will the people look for an utterance which will lead to their deliverance. "The ax should be laid to the root of the tree of special privileges. The plan is to attack the cause, rather than the effect, to strike'at special privileges hardest and first. In government ownership only can every favoritism be prevented. Govern ment control under corporate ownership has proven a failure. In order to destroy the trusts we must take from them the special advantages which have created them and they will wither of their own weight, as they meet the energetic, com petitive capacity of the American people. "It is the plan to organise all who are opposed to the trusts with the view of uniting the friends of freedom In every state, county and school district until that concentrated action which alone can prove effective."

Brlggs, formerly of the Presbyterian church, but now a Protestant Episcopal clergyman, and In charge of the pro-ca thedral In Canton street, the very center of what Is called "the Infested district." No set plan of campaign has been out lined, but the work will be pursued with aggressiveness. Much of Its force will be derived from the fact that the better ele ment of the district will lend a hand and In a quiet way bring the leaders of the crusade face to face with the situation. The politicians will be appealed to, and If these appeals fall then other means will be resorted to. Just what Is meant by this the leaders of the movement refuse to say, but they intimate that the politician who fails In his duty will be treated to a disagreeable surprise. The police are also expected to lend their earnest co-operation and It is expected the bluecoats of the various po lice stations in the district will be given definite orders when they start on theft early evening and midnight patrols.

Last night all the cavalry', artillery and infantry, the latter riding in wagons to Increase the general mobility, started upon a night march, with the object of turning the Boers' right The flank opera tions were successful. The Infantry and field batteries Immediately made a feint attack on the Boer front, and while this waa proceeding the cavalry and light ar tillery got completely around the enemy's right flank, as arranged. The programme worked without a hitch. The Boers were, utterly surprised, and, finding their retreat threatened, fled In dis order to the eastward, leaving Colesburg in Oen. French's bands. Aaother Aeeouat of the Fight. LONDON, Jan. 2—The Dally Mall has the following dispatch dated January 1 from Rensburg: "Yesterday afternoon a big force - of cavalry and Infantry, with ten guns, under the personal command of Qen. French,, moving by detour, occupied some hills three miles from Colesburg, where lUe Boers were in strength, confident in the natural aid afforded them by the hills around. "The enemy's position extended six miles around the entire At daybreak our artillery opened the battle. The Boera were taken by surprise, but replied vigor ously. An artillery duel was maintained tor two hours. Then a Beer Hotchlct.'S collapsed and was abandoned. We captured .It. A Boer blc gun was silenced, but this and the other Boer guns were withdrawn to the northward, whither we are harassing the Boer retreat by a damaging shell fire.

Frnck'a Harness OITH tht Military Critics SMietklag to Talk About. I/JNDON. Jan. 2, 4:30 a. m.—The success of Gen. French In driving the Boers from Colesburg has shot a welcome ray- of light through the gloom of the campaign in South Africa. Everywhere it is comment ed upon as an example of sound tactics and as an Illustration, of what may be done when the right msthodq are employed with the Boers. The government la urged to take the lesson to heart and to see that no is left unturned in the endeavor to get' the largest possible force of cavalry and mounted Infantry to the front. Now that Qen. French has the Boers bn the run,' the hope la expressed that he will give them no real, but will harass them until they have found their way across the Orange river, which .is twelve miles distant. The old wagon route to the Free State traverses colesburg and crosses the river by a fine bridge 1,340 feet long. It is believed that the Boers retreated toward Norvalspont, further east, and the ques tion is whether Gen. French will be able to secure these two bridges before the Boers destroy them. One Important result of the success of Gen. French Is that it will have a deter rent effect on Dutch disaffection. There Is some disposition here to exag gerate the Importance of small skirmishes PRICE FIVE CENTS. and engagements. It irtiould be born# tn mind that Gen. French has only 1,900 men, and to far as the Important points of the campaign are concerned, the situation la virtually unchanged. Boer Defeases at MoUeir River.
