LONDON, Feb. 15, 4:20 a. m.—The Brit ish army for the first time since the war began Is Inside the Boer frontier. Lord Roberts, with at least 40.000 Infantry, 7,000 cavalry and 150 guns, has turned the Magcrsfonteln lines, before which the British forces have been encamped for ten weeks, and with half of his corps he is already operating on Free State terri tory. A battle has not yet been fought, but large tactical advantages have been gain ed. The relief of Kimberley is within measurable reach, and the way to Bloem fonteln is appreciably easier. Roberta' Daya* Work. The dispatches of Lord Roberts sketch his three days' work. The forward movement began on Monday, when Col. Hannay set out with a brigade of mounted infantry from Kammah, on the Riet, eight miles from Jacobsdal, the Boer supply base. On Monday 'Jen. French, with the cavalry division, seized the crossing of the Riet river, at De Kils drift, south of Jacobsdal and eighteen miles east of Honeynest kloof. He skir mished with the Boers and cleared the way for 20,000 infantry, who followed across. French's I.onar Hide. On Tuesday, with his three cavalry bri gades and the horse artillery, Gen.

Cronje'a Communication Herered. den. French has now fixed himself on (Ten. Cronje'a main line of communication with Bloemfonteln and 20,000 infantry, with seventy-two guns, are being pushed up to support him there. Lord Roberts' dispatches, wired from inside the Free State, and on the Riet river, left him Wednesday morning. His advance had not been opposed by the Boer* In fore*. Their patrols melted away as the British moved forward. The Boer army is likely to be felt In a day or two, and a battle is consequently Imrr'nent. As to what forces Gen. Cronje has now at his disposal and as to where he pro pose making a stand against the in vaders, no one here connected with the war office knows anything. The data for conceptions are wholly wanting.

"Feb. 14.—Re present at Ire Jones called at the White House this morning and introduced to President Mc- Kinley W. J. Milroy, formerly of North Yakima, now an attorney at Nome. Alaska. Both urged upon the president the neces sity for legislation extending the mining and public land laws to Alaska, especially defining minfng rights on the ocean beach. The president heartily agreed with their views, and Intimated that his indorsement might be counted upon. The principal controversy in the commit tees at present is the sixty-foot roadway along the Alaska beach. Mining men now here desire the right to locate this and establish machinery there for pumping water to the placer mines farther inland. Representative bill regulates the use of the roadway and prescribes the amount of beach that may be held by one person. Alaska mining representatives now here object ta this, contending that it paves the way for monopolies. .Lacey's bill will certainly be amended and even probably an entirely new measure will be framed. To Conitrnrt Telegraph I-lnes. The house committee on military affairs has agreed upo/i an amendment appro priating nearly half a million dollars for the construction of military tslegraph and cable lines in Alaska, to connect the head quarters of the department of Alaska, at St. Michael, with Fort Egbert, Cape Nome and all Important military posts In that district.

FRANKFORT. Ky.. Feb. 14.—The suit of Beckham vs. Taylor, for the possesion of the office of governor, was filed today In the circuit court at Frankfort. Up to a late hour the sheriff had not succeeded In serving notice on Gov. Tay- Jor, and the chances of his doing no did not seem bright, as all visitors to the office of the governor or to the guberna torial mansion were compelled to run a guantlet of guards who were on the look out for gentlemen with suspicious papers. The petition in the suit holds that W. S. Taylor Is not the governor of the state, and that with an armed force he holds possession of the executive building. It alleges that he Is drawing money without authority of law from the state treasury, pardoning convicts and doing other things that are detrimental to the welfare of the state. The petition asks that the court enjoin him from exercising any duties as chief executive and from assuming any control whatever over the legislature. Application for the injunction will be made on Friday, before Judge CantrUl, at Georgetown. Democrats Will Xot Go to Frnnkfort The committee of the I>emocratlc mem bers of the legislature which came from liouisvllle for the purpose of investigat ing conditions here and determining whether it is safe for the Democratic members to venture within the precincts of Frankfort, returned to Ixmisvlile to night. The members of the eomwlttee declined to hold any conversation with Adjt. Gen. Collier or Gov. Taylor, and made Custodian Thompson, of the execu tive building, the go-between. They first sent word to Gov. Taylor that before the Democratic members could think of re turning to Frankfort, the soldiers must be sent away. No objection, they said, could be raised to a small number or a body guard for Gov. Taylor personally. As for the legislature, it needed no protection. Are I'romlied Protection. Gov. Taylor replied through the medium of Custodian Thotaipson that the request for the committee could not be complied with, but promised that the legislature should not be molested in any tvay. For tli© committee Custodian Thoinpaon then asked Gov. Taylor If the same condition* would exist Monday around the state house as existed today. Mr. Thompson was sent back with the reply that no as surance could be given but that there would be no show of force and that all the soldiers would be withdrawn from the gates and would be kept in the back* ground as much as possible.
