Isteourt Isolated by Boers, Whl Control the Railroad to Mooi River. As a Consequence Important De veloplnents Are Due at Any Time. Evidence Tends to Show Large Boer Accessions From Cape Burghers. LONDON, Nov. 23.-There has appar ently been no communication with Est court, Natal, since noon, Tuesday, ani the Boers now control the railroaz thence to Mooi river. Consequently momentous developments may be ex' pected at any time. The Boers, ii seems, are swarming southward. Largf bodies of them are reported all around Estcourt, and parties of Boers appeci to be threatening Pietermaritzburg, The Boers encamped at Highlands sta, tion are well supplied with artillery and all evidence tends to show that the various Boer forces are being largely increased by accessions from the disaf fected Cape burghers. The serious deo ficiency in cavalry is being felt by the British, who are unable to keep in touch with the mobile Boer forces, whose presence is hardly reported before they are lost sight of, only to reappear at another point along the line of communication. General Hildyard's force at Estcourt, reinforced by the naval guns, can do little but wait an attack until General Clery's column is capable of taking the field. According to a Cape Town dispatch General Methuen's division left Orange river and reached Wittputs, half way to Belmont, yesterday, and advices from Orange river today show that the Boers occupy Belmont in force and that the neighboring hills are crowned with Boer cannon. A patrol of Lancers who had returned to Orange river came un expectedly on two Boer laagers. Three shrapnel shells burst close to the Lan oiers, who, however, were unharmed, OFFICIAL DISPATCHES.

Some Think Agluioaldo's Whole Army has ias EsnpeId-Others Not So ulre. NEw YORK, Nov. 28.-A dispatch to led The Herald from Manila says: The Lty, opinion of many military men and of ary residents and foreigners is that Aguin aldo has escaped by changing the seat ion of war into the northern part of the of island. They think he has taken a con her siderable army with him. This. if true, in- will necessitate a new series of opera tions on our part and Aguinaldo has of gained a tenpcrary strategic advantage. les Those holding this view point to the be- fact that the insurgents never intended to hold the alleged capital at Tarlac, as a permanent capital, as it was only slightly fortified. They also claim that ho tile railroad being left intact, while ren much rolling stock was burned and de.. his stroyed, indicates that a rapid retreat the was made several weeks back. This retreat must have been accom. phshed at the time Lawton began his ban Isidro movement. Therefore, the insurgents have had time to move out lo- their principal supplies and munitions. am It is also a fact that our circle of troops has been closed up so far without ma nd terial resistance, except in the region o, ras escape to the north, near Wheaton's cth coilmn. The captured supplies, too, have proved insignificant, compared with those that would be required. is Aguinaldo's supposed army in this val ley was estimated at from 10,000 to do 20.000. Their known large quantities of artillery are still unaccounted for. 100 Otle and Sehwan I/if'Rr. The opinions of General Otis and th General Schwan differ somewhat from this view. They say that they do not know whether or not Aguinaldo with 0 his army has escaped into the Tabacco 0, valley or to the north. If so they doubt on whether he escaped with any consider 22, able force. They believe that Aguin aldo himself has gone. They also be 10 lieve that a considerable number of the or insurgents' force is scattered in small ps bands within our lines as amigos. Be Generals Otis and Schwan think that Ie. within 24 hours we will control the Manila-Dagupan valley. The occupa tion of this territory is now more of a mechanical than a military problem. ay There may possibly be some desultory fighting. iGeneral Otis says that the railroad repairs will be rushed. New.rails will 'l, be laid and the bridges raised. These will be operated throughout in a short ife time. The general opinion here is that ic. we have gained a tremendous advantage St, over the insurgents. Satisfaction is ex Id. pressed everywhere. Commercial men hope that the valley will be quickly and permanently garrisoned and that their interests will be protected. It is impossible to say how large a force Aguinaldo has been able to hold at, together, or whether, after the loss of id' the railroad people in the north will still support * him. This whole he movement has shown the ad ied vantage of cavalry for expeditious is- operations in the Philippines. The fall campaign has been remarkably vigor ast cus. Transportation is still inadequate. us With the mules that are coming the in movement of the troops will be much ge. facilitated. The roads and trails are i,- drying. The last heavy rains of the all. ."ason have probably fallen. It is be so, licved here that Aguinaldo's retreat to 88 the north in no wuy affects the con led fronting insurgent force south of Manila. me For Disoharging Union Men. For MARIoN.

The reason the Bur;iuntro is desirous f running a through truus-coutinental hue midway between the Union Pacific ad the Fremont, Elkborn & Missouri 'alley is that these lines belong to the anuderbilt-Harriman syndicate and the resent Burlington line is wedged in etween thenm. It desires to be situated D that it can offer active competition .'the Northwestern and its allied lines east of the Missouri river, and this it opes to accomplish by building an ex ansion from Alliance.
