Probabl the situation on Modder River is
suggestive of a part at least of the gen
oral scheme How far Lord Methuen may
have been re-enforccd is not announced;
but he must be greatly stronger in troops
and artlller than when he fought the
battle of Magarsfontein His pres
ent movements indicate that he
is about to make a vigorous attack on
Cronje's left in the direction of Jacobs
dal. doubtless supported by a column w hich
it 16 surmised Roberts has sent up from
the Cape. The new force would be apt to
jnove across from the railway at Honey
iNest Kloof, or in th3t neighborhood and
cross the Riot Rler near or to the east
of Jacobsdal. The flanking operations
which Sir Hector Macdonald is conducting
to the west of Magarsfontein, have devel
oped sufficient success, apnarentl. to
make it necessary for the Boer general to
detach a considerable force from Methu
cn's f relit or from the left to confront him
at Kcodcos Kon The probabilities then
are that when the Modder Uier planis
read for execution, Cronje will find him-

or turning Jacobsdal,
When this happens it is assumed that
the conditions will be ripe for an ad
ance at Ihe same time from Colesberg;
the idea being that with Cronje defeated
a movement from Kunberlej and Colesberg
converging on Bioemfontein will be in
order. These are the inferences from the
news, and are apt to be fault cspotiall
in details, as the new itself is an thing
but complete It is evident, however, that
at last there is a head to the Dritish

Mr. Kerens had come from

"I had a very charming talk with Gov

Governor Roosevelt told me that he pre

In the number of approved applications for
pensions in South Carolina ha so reduced
the amount going to each pensioner that
the Confederate veterans have practicall
taken the whole matter of pensions into
their hands.
When ears ago it was first decided to
give pensions $30,000 was voted for this
purpose and It was adequate for several
ears but so man more pensioners got on
the rolls that the Legislature voted $100,
000 for the old soldiers and their widows
This has now become insufficient, pension
ers getting onl from $25 to ?50 a jear.
Last summer at a convention of Con
federate veterans a committee of three
was appointed to draw a pension bill to
be presented to the General Assembl,
making radical changes in the sstem and
taking the matter out "of the hands of
count officers and politicians This has
been done, the bill favorabl reported in
both houses and it will probably be passed
without change.
Under this law the pensioner, if a man,
must have been a soldier or sailor in the
Confederate service and a resident of South
Carolina for two ears: must have lost a
leg or arm or received other disabling
wounds, and neither he nor his wife have
an income of $250 a ear, or he must have
reached the age of sixt and neither he nor
his wife have an income of $100.
Soldiers widowb who have never remar
ried and who have not an income of $100
each are eligible for pensions
The sum of at least $100,000 must be an
nuall appropriated for pensions Those
who have lost both legs or both arms will
receive $8 a month; those who have lost
one leg or one arm will receive $6 a month.
Widows receive $6 a month All others en.
titled to pensions receive $1 If the
amount appropriated is insufficient those
