THE ST JOHNSBURY CALEDONIAN, NOVEMBER 16, 1899.
WAR IN THE TRANSVAAL
London, Nov. 14. Though the brief
news received from the seat of war la
encouraging to the more enthusiastic
persons, it is nevertheless received with
out excitement by conservative folk.
They refer one to the experiences of the
past, urging the idea that on should not
Jump at conclusions from the meagre
details supplied.
Dispatches say that heliograph com
munication has been established with
Ladysmith, but so far no news has been
received, the latest date being Nov. 6.
which shows that the occupants of
Ladysmith had no news of the outside
world since' General French reached
Pietermarltzburg, and that they were
puzzled at the Inactivity 01 the Boers.
Everyone was confident and cheerful,
but all were suffering the Inconven
iences of the siege, bread selling at 3
shillings per loaf.
Colonel Baden-Powell's dashing sor
ties at Mafeklng encourage the hope
that the British garrisons along the west
ern border are well able to hold out.
Cecil Rhodes is employing 8000 men,
white and black, at Klmberley In road
making as a remedy for destitution.
According to a dispatch from De Aar
the Boers at Klmberley have got the ex
act range of the mines and are con
stantly throwing shells at the dynamite
huts. Several of the, latter1 have been
blown up; and the damage done to the
mines already amounts to many thou
sand pounds.
A dispatch from Lorenzo Marquez
says that Father Matthews, chaplain of
the Irish fusiliers, who was captured at
Nicholson's Nek, complains that though
General Joubert promised to How him to
return to the British camp, he was
taken to Pretoria. The secretary of war
released him two days after his arrival,
and he was permitted to leave. He ad
mits that the British prisoners are well
cared for.
Father Matthews says, with reference
to the surrender of the Irish fusiliers
and the Gloucestershire troops at Nichol
son's Nek, that after the mules stam
peded the force got hard pressed by the
enemy. They would have held out, how
ever, but some subordinate, without in
structions, hoisted a flag of truce on his
own responsibility. Nothing then re
mained but to surrender.
"We were sent out," says Father
Matthews, "to occupy a position with
the object of preventing two Boer forces
from Joining. We started at 8:30 Sun
day evening, marched 10 miles and got
to the hill about 1 o'clock Monday morn
ing. "The first mishap was that the moun
tain battery stampeded and scattered
the whole lot of mules. We formed up
again and gained the top of the hill. The
guns were gone, but not all the ammu
nition. I do not know what stampeded
the mules. It was pitch dark.
"We had one hour sleep. The firing
began Just after daybreak, being some
what slack for a time. But finally the
Boers crept round and then the firing be
came furious. Our men made a breast
work of stones.
"Soon after 12 o'clock noon there was
a general cry of 'cease fire,' but our fel
lows would not stop firing. Major Adye
came up and confirmed the order, and
then the bugle sounded, 'Cease fire.'
"In our locality there was a rumor that
a white flag was raised by a young of
ficer who thought his batch of 10 men
were the sole Burvlvors; but we were 900
alive, having started with perhaps 1000.
I think many of the battery men escaped.
"Our officers and men were furious at
the surrender. The Boers did not seem
to be ln great numbers on the spot; but
I heard their main body had galloped off.
Our men had to give up their arms, and
the officers were sent to Commandant
Steenkamp. The officers then ordered
the men to fall in.
"The officers were taken away from
the men and sent to General Joubert the
same day, traveling ln mule wagons and
sleeping that night in some Btore on the
way. The next morning they took a
train at Waschbank for Pretoria. They
are very well treated, and so, I have
heard, are the men.
"There has been no unpleasantness in
Pretoria. The officers are in a school
building and are allowed to walk as they
please In the grounds.
"The surrender, in my judgment, was
a great blunder, caused by a misunder
standing. Major Adye was much put
out. The white flag was not hoisted by
the Irish fusiliers."

New York, Nov. 14.A petition in
bankruptcy was -filed yesterday by

sets Is not given. Midgley was presi
dent of the American Casualty Insur
ance and Security company, which col
lapsed In 1894 after Its $1,700,000 capital

road company for $250,000 for false ar
rest and he got a verdict for $20,000.

COTTON INDUSTRY.
Fall River, Mass., Nov. 14. A labor
leader says that if a strike is ordered
every mill in the city will be affected by
It, and this will mean the loss of about
$200,000 weekly to the city. He said that
Fall River has employed ln her mills
28,300 operatives. There are 82 mills,
2,901,056 spindles and 70,878 looms in the
city, representing an Invested capital of
over $25,000,000, and a weekly production
averaging 250,000 pieces of print cloths.
Fall River has one-half of the spindles
ln Massachusetts, about three-fifths of
the spindles ln New England and about
half of the aggregate number in the
United States. Referring to the south
ern mills he said that Fall River has
more than double the number of spindles
in all the southern states combined and
almost as many as all the states In the
Union, outside of New England.
This will show the effect a strike will
have upon the cotton Industry of the
United States. With about 28,300 em
ployes and a union membership of one
third that number, Fall River is the
most strongly organized mill city in the
world. The weekly payroll of the Fall
River mills reaches $188,000, or an aver
age of over $6.60 per week to each em
ploye, from the agent and treasurer, who
received as high a salary as $10,000 per
year, to the lowly paid back boy, who
gets $2.60 per week for his labor. If the
10 percent Increase is given to the in
dustrial workers of the city the weekly
average will be about $7.25 for each em
ploye, from the back boy up to the agent.
At the time the last restoration was
made, M. C. D. Borden, managing owner
of the Fall River Iron works mills, fore
stalled the members of the Manufactur
ers' association by giving his employes
the 11 1-9 percent increase without a
strike. At this time euch an act on his
part is not looked for by many of the
laboring element. Should he volun
tarily restore wages to the original
basis of two years ago, the whole wage
situation will be settled amicably, for It
is realized by both manufacturers and
operatives that if Mr. Borden followed
his precedent of a year ago the employ
ers of this city would be forced to follow.
A special meeting of the Textile coun
cil was held Sunday, lasting nearly
four hours. Reports from delegates from
all the unlonB resting upon the final de
cision of the Textile council were ac
cepted. Considerable discussion led to
the adoption of the following unanimous
resolution:
"We demand of the manufacturers an
increase of 10 percent in wages on the
present schedule for all operatives, the
same to go into effect on Dec. 11, and a
reply is requested on or before Nov. 24.
In the event of -refusal, we recommend
all operatives not to return to work
Dec. 11."
Secretary Whitehead said: "This is
practically a recommendation to strike
Dec. 11, If our demand Is refused."
The Textile council feels that its posi
tion Is Justifiable, so much so that it is

An Easy Test.
If you are suffering from Kidney or
Bladder disease, the doctor asks: "Do
you desire to urinate often, and are you
compelled to get up frequently during
the night ? Does your back pain you ?
Does your urine stain linen ? Is there a
scalding pain in passing it, and is it diffi
cult to hold the urine back ? If so, your
Kidneys or Bladder are diseased."
Try putting some of your urine in a
glass tumbler, let it stand twenty-four
hours. If there is a sediment, or a
cloudy, milky appearance, your Kidueys
are sick.

THE NORTHERN LUMBER CO.,
ST. JOHNSBURY, VT.
ARRANGEMENTS KEPT SECRET.
Bui Very Few Persons Present al Ihe Dewey
Hazen Wedding Ceremony.
Mrs. Mildred M. Hazen and Admiral
George Dewey were quietly married
Thursday at the rectory of St. Paul's
Catholic church. The ceremony was
performed, by Rev. Ja(mes F. Mackln,
pastor of the church, assisted by Rev.
Joseph A. Foley, assistant pastor, and
Rev. Sidney S. Hurlburt.
The ceremony was strictly private and
of the simplest character. The bride
was accompanied by Mrs. Washington
McLean, her mother, and Mrs. Ludlow,
her sister, while Admiral Dewey was
accompanied by Lieutenant Caldwell,
his aide. There were no other guests,
and after the ceremony the admiral and
Mrs. Dewey entered a carriage and were
driven to the residence of Mrs. Wash
ington McLean, where a wedding break
fast was served.
The arrangements for the wedding
were made with all the secrecy which
has attended the whole affair. After
procuring the license for the wedding,
Lieutenant Caldwell called upon Fr.
Mackln of St. Paul's, at which church
Mrs. Hazen is a communicant, and ar
ranged for the wedding. As Admiral
Dewey Is not a Catholic, a special dis
pensation was required for the perform
ance of the ceremony. The general pub
lic had no intimation of where the cere
mony was to take place, and not a
single spectator was present when the
party reached the church. Mrs. Hazen
and the admiral immediately took their
places ln the centre of the little recep
ton room, where the ceremony was per
formed according to the nuptial rites of
the Catholic church. It consumed less
than five minutes. Father Mackln was
first to hail the bride as Mrs. Dewey.

The strength of textiles, both raw and
manufactured, has been accentuated
during the week, increases being noted
In raw cotton, wool and hemp. Brad
street's approximate Index number of
Nov. 1 showed a gain of 1 percent for
the month and of 12 percent as com
pared with Jan. 1 this year, and is at the
highest point reported since April, 1893.
The strength of textiles, leather, oils
and miscellaneous products was cal
culated to offset the weakness and ir
regularity ln metals, not including iron
and steel, however, cereals and other
food products. ,
Raw cotton advanced early this week
on an appearance of better buying by
foreign consumers and active domestic
demand for the manufactured product.
Realizing later Imparted some Irregular
ity and even excitement to this staple.
Wool has been equally strong, though
transactions are smaller, and a material
gain in prices is to be noted, while from
the manufactured goods branch come
reports of confident strength and of
probable future advances in men's wear
goods and carpets,
Cereals show little or no change. The
dullness of wheat at domestic markets
finds explanation in Bradstreet's sta
tistics of world's stocks, which Indicate
a gain for the month of over 17,000,000
bushels, contributed entirely from
American sources, however, as foreign
supplies showed a slight shrinkage, the
United States and Canadian stocks gain

readiness of foreign buying at conces

by our increasing trade in them from

Cold weather however is the time
when they are most in vogue, and trade
is always quite lively in this specialty. ,
Rubber Bottles this year are better

satisfaction with the cheap ones. They
cost a little more, but they are worth a
good deal more. We have them of
