His Arrival at Freere Means
Advance Soon to Ladysmith.
Collision Is Expected at Natal and Speyt-
lonteln English Doubt Kafllrgraiiis
That lioere Are About to Abandon Siege
of Ladysmith.
LONDON, Dec. 8.—General Buller'S ar
rival afc Freere is held to indicate that
all the preparations for an advance to
the relief of Ladysmith are complete
and that stirring news will soon be re
ceived. The fact that Lord Methuen is
announced as resuming his command at
almost tho same moment is interpreted
in some quarters to mean that battles
will be fouglit simultaneously at Natal
and at Speyttontein. It appears doubt
ful, however, whether General Me
thuen's force is ready for what will
evidently be a heavy encounter. The
construction of the temporary bridge
across Modeler river has entailed enor
mous labor, and even the structure is
liable to be washed away should a heavy
storm come. General Methuen has
been obliged to move his camp a mile
north in consequence of the unsanitary
state of the stream, owing to the pres
ence of the bodies of dead Boers. As
the railway bridge was completely de
stroyed, he was compelled to leave a
considerable force to protect his com
nranications. A special correspondent
sends the interesting information re
garding Boer tactics, that Commandant
General Joubert has given general or
ders to reserve fire until the British are
within 400 yards. At the Modder River
battle the Free State burghers became
nervous, opened fire prematurely, thus
revealing their position and frustrated
the Boer plans.
The Morning Post publishes an arti
cle warning the British public that the
"disillusionment already experienced re
specting the Boer forces in Natal is
likely to be repeated on the western
It says men are wanted everywhere
and asks why the splendid body of
royal marines is now being employed in
sweeping floors and washing paint in
England and is not sent out to handle
the naval guns instead of the hurriedly
trained men, unfamiliar with these
weapons, who have gone^ The govern
ment has decided to dispatch to South
Africa at the earliest possible moment a
cavalry brigade of about 4,000 men.
Dintrnst the Kaffirgrams*
LONDON, Dec. 8.—A story was current
at Durban on Tuesday, Dec. 5, to the ef
fect that the Boers made what is
thought to have been their final effort
to capture Ladysmith, Dec. 4, and were
defeated and retreated. As the story
was brought by runners, it should be re
ceived with reservation, as the unrelia
bility of these "Kaffirgrams" is notori
s.'kious. According to this report the Boers
^opened a furious bombardment during
^the morning of Dec. 4, continuing it for
ours, when the British finally silenced
the Boer guns, made a^sortie and hard
fighting followed, the Boers retreating
after very heavy losses, estimated in

years. Six children survive, all grown

Mrs. Hutchens were known to have had this should

Developments In Ingraham Failure
MOUNT AYR, la.. Deo. 8.—The fail­
ure of A. O. Ingraham, the largest mer
chant in this part of Iowa, is develop
ing sensational features. It is now
stated by the creditors' representatives
that the liabilities are fully $120,000 and
total assets not over $30,000. In the
three weeks before the failure Ingra
ham deeded away a store at Shannon
City, another at Allendale, Mo., besides
lands and buildings which he held.
The creditors announce they will un
dertake to set aside the conveyances,
