The collision occurred on the night of

Goverameat Ownership the Plan
Proposed to Remedy the Pres
ent Alleged Evils.
CHICAGO, Jan. 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
Movement on Foot, Strongly Led, to
Purify the Plague Spots of the
Lower Bust Side.
NEW YORK, Jan. 1.-Thls. the first
day of the new year, haa been selected
for the Inauguration of the crusade
against vice on the lower East side. The
movement has attracted wide attention by
reason of the forces behind It. These In
clude the Society of Ethical Culture,
whose leader. Prof. Dlx Adler, has an
nounced his Intention to rid the congested
district of Its many plague spots.
Prof. Adler will have th«, assistance of
oVer a score of ministers of all denomi
nations, among them, it Is reported, the
Rev. 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.

REINESBERG, Cape Colony, Jan. 1
Gen. French has completely defeated the
Boers and occupied Colesburg. The gen-'
eral continued to keep the Boers on the
move, and pressed them closely Saturday
and Sunday, giving them no time to ma hp
a prolonged stand, and when day broke he
waa within striking distance of the ene
my. 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
"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.
"Colesburg is in our hands and- the few
remaining loyallats are jubilant We have
captured many wagons and a considerable
quantity of stores.
"Our loss was quite slight, but the Boers
must have suffered heavily. They may
stay at Achtertang or cross the river alto
gether at Norvalspont, where the bridge is
still intact"

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
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.

At Modfler river the Boers appear to be
