The Home Government Will Not Support the British South Africa company. CAPE TOWN, Jan. 2. Dr. Jamieson, commissioner of the British South Africa company, who marched into the Transvaal republic Tuesday, was today met near Johannesburg by a large force cf Boers and defeated. Jamieson's forces consisted of 1,000 men, largely Kaffirs, with six Maxim guns. His mission was ostensibly, to make a demonstration before Pretoria, the Transvaal capital, for the purpose of securing equal political privileges in the Transvaal for British subjects with the citizens of the republic. The Boers had been expectant of the raid and a large force was in read iness at Johannesburg under General Joubert, The attack of the Boers was in the nature of a surprise and a sharp engagement resulted in the rout of the British column and the capture of a .large part of its strength, as well as the cannon. LONDON Jan. 2. The Colonial of fice has received a confirmation of the reported defeat of Dr. Jamieson. After sustaining a great loss of life he sur rendered.

There seems to be tribulation around the court house these days. The board of supervisors was in session yester day, the first meeting of the new year, ana made great destruction in the piles of county bills that awaited their attention. Assistant Clerk Brent Kirkland was the only member of the clerical force present. Clerk I. N. Cox had tendered his resignation. The re constructed board has two Republican members and the G. O. P. is conse quently now in control; Major Cox is an old-time, dyed-in-the-wool Jef fersonian Democrat. It is said his res ignation was asked by Chairman Priest. Yet. somehow, the board did not accept it when It materialized and as yet there is no other clerk. As candidates for the office there are but two individuals apparent. One is Phir Sheridan, late deputy county recorder, and the other is 'Deputy Clerk Kirkland. But there is some hitch in the business and the appointment, if there be one at all, will be made in the opaque futurity. A TOTAL LOSS. Quick Destruction of a South Side Dwelling. About 2:30 yesterday afternoon the residence of W. S. Hadley on Center street, a half mile south of the city, was totally destroyed by fire, together with its contents. The loss on the building is $1,000, with insurance in the Phoenix of Brooklyn of $500; loss on contents nearly $1,000, insured in in the Scottish Union for $450. The cause of the fire is unknown. Mrs. Hadley had left the ibuilding but a few minutes before and was at a neighbor's. She- states that the blaze first appeared in an inside room, wherein was a heating stove that had been in use during the morning. The house was a four-roomed frame struc ture and burned as would a mass of shavings. Nothing could be taken from it and the distance was too great for any results from the fire depart ment, though an alarm was turned m and the fire companies responded. Made to Cox. TO MARK THE BOUNDARY The Venezuelan Com mission's Plans. Justice Brewer Interviewed on the Subject. Fred Couclert Chosen a Membei The Commission Is to Be En tirely Unfettered. 'WASHINGTON, Jan. 2 Justice Brewer, who heads the Venezuelan commission, was seen today by a rep resentative of the Associated Press. In response to inquiries, Mr. Brewer said he had no doubt the sessions of ihe commission would be held in Washington, as it was the most acces sible point and moreover much of the documentary evidence, maps, etc., which would initiate the inquiry, "were here. Justice Brewer when asked if the commission was likely to go abroad to pursue its investigation, said it might, but that the state department had pre pared certain features of 'the evidence regarded as essential and which would serve as a groundwork for the investi gation. In any event, doubtless this would be gone over, and the commis sion would determine what further steps were required to ascertain the facts. It might be that Venezuela and England would be asked to present their respective cases. Certainly in a question, of this character there would be a desire for the fullest information from, all available sources. When this documentary evidence was all in hand the question might then arise as to the desirabiity of verifying certain feat ures of it by a personal inspection of the original of the documents in the archives of Holland, Spain and other countries. This would involve a trip abroad and there wa3 the possibility that it might become desirable per sonally to view the locality of tie con tention along the Guiana line. OUR PET FIGHT. An. Independent Commis'.u Fred. B. Coudert a Member, WASHINGTON, Jan. 2. It is au thoritatively stated in behalf of the ad ministration tha't the Venezuela com mission will be absolute master of its own procedure, fixing time and place of its meetings and determining for itself whether or not it shall go to foreign countries, what class of evi dence may be taken into consideration and how the interested governments may be represented before the tri bunal. This independence of action is deemed necessary to secure the com mission's finding of that degree of weighlt and respect among other na tions that can be attained only through a knowledge that the body is free from any restraint or obligation to the United States government. Our gov ernment will occupy the status of exact neutrality in the proceedings. NEW YORK, Jan. 2 Frederick B. Coudert, Jr., said today that his father had formally accepted the Venezuelan commissionership tendered him by President Cleveland. The committee on foreign relations of the chamber of commerce today adopted a strong resolution appealing to the common sense of those interest ed in both nations to arbitrate the dif ficulty between the United States and Great Britain. BREWER FOR PRESIDENT. Kansas Brings Him Forth as a Candi date. KANSAS CITY, Jan. 2 A special to The Star from Topeka says: ExIhief Justice Albert H. Horton has entered Associate Justice Brewer in the. Republican race for the presi dency. He says, "He is a big man and his appointment by the president to be the head of the Venezuelan commis sion makes him a bigger one. It is a proper recognition of his worth. He is decidedly the biggest man Kansas has ever given to public life and you will find that he will distinguish him self in the Venezuelan investigation." IMPRESSIONS OF PHOENIX. What an Eastern Visitor Thinks of the City. PHOENIX, Ariz., Jan. 2. Approach ing Phoenix from the wastes of south ern New (Mexico, the barren wilderness of the Pecos, and the stretches of cactus fields east of Maricopa, the stranger is not encouraged to expect much of his destination. The stories of unfortunate victims of the desert and the occasional carcasses of cattle which he can notice en route through JMew Mexico, along with the heat, often sickens 'him, and destroys what little illuminated ideas he may have had regarding the two territories. iBut striking north through the 10, 000 acres of waving alfalfa and corn between Maricopa and the capital, and seeing the orange groves and semi tropical trees of Salt 'River valley, his fallen estimate experiences sudden rise and iris illuminated hope3 re-illuminate. He is surprised to behold a metropolis of brick business houses, trim cottages, shady -walks and broad smooth, streets. j He sees freighters of six-in-hand, j bringing bales of alfalfa into town, he ; hears of new enterprises, new church- j es, new schemes of various kind and J business, all evidencing a phenomenal and steady growth in every depart ment of life. He meets the miner, the farmer, 'the capitalist and the merchant and im bibing the spirit of enterprise finds himself unconsciously interested in their affairs. A city's future is in herself; and the wandering northerner, especially if be is a iChicagoan, feels a sort of fellow- snip in company with Phoenicians feels that they are cf a type like those at home and having the same bustle characteristic of the Garden City. Personal effort of the citizen as an individual builds-Tip the city at large. As the citizen prospers so prospers the city. Unity of purpose will do all things. Here is the territorial hub; the distributing center of Arizona; here are the moonlight nights, the sunny days, and the happy climate: here are the benefits of irrigation, and here is the future metropolis. Metro politan by nature, born with the spirit of a Spartan, supplied at birth with the features of modern life, 'her history is a tale, the half of which has 'never been told, nor ever can be. There is a play called "Phoenix, or Rising From the Ashes." Milton Noble plays it, it is a drama of carn age and .final success. And Phoenix though subject to the adversities which nurture the infancy and bother the maturity of all cities, may though risen from the ashes, and a child of the desert, become one of the first in the great sisterhood of American cen ters. C. V. FRARY. ADVANCING INSURGENTS. The News That Leaks Through Span ish News Bureaus. HAVANA, Jan. 2. An engagement botweon Spanish troops and insurgents has taken place at El Estante, south of Alfonso, not far from the frontier of the province of Havana. An official announcement says the troops captured the insurgent position, but the loss to the enemy is not known. It is admitted that two Spanish officers and four soldiers were killed and nine teen wounded. The insurgents, fol lowing their usual tactics, did not at tempt to come to a decisive engage ment, but proceeded westward devas tating the country. The authorities here in announcing this skirmish added the significent statement: "The troops were moved closer to the province of Havana," which would indicate that the Span ish forces are once more in retreat. Later in the day it was announced here that further fighting between the Spaniards and Cubans is taking place m the vicinity of El Esitante, which leads the people here to believe the insurgents have been in pursuit of the Spanish troops in that vicinity. It is announced that Felipe Rod riguez, the insurgent leader, has been killed in the battle. REAVIS CONSPIRATORS. To Be Prosecuted aa Guilty With Their Principal. SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 2.

Fowler's playing was wonderful in view of the fact that he went into tie game with a Came leg. Butts' playlng at quarter was perfect. Willis and Robinson made good gains- through, the line and under interference Willie cleared the end twice for a good gain. Evans and Smith played at tackle splendidly and to Evans belongs the honor of the only touchdown. Byrnes, Sullivan and Wynkoop proved too much for Prescott and made havoc with them. Cooley and McLaughlin played end tackle like veterans and stopped end runs successfully. Mc Laughlin saved a touchdown at one time after Willis fell off in tackling. Willis was dazed by DeLanty's fierce tackle and partially lost the power of his arms. The game was well fought. Phoenix has much to be proud of and. Prescott nothing to be ashamed ot Dandruff is due to an enfeebled state of the skin.
