OPFIOIAL PAPBR OF CITY AND OOUNTV
Boers Believe in Providence.
The Boers believe that their kopjes
(bills) were speciailyicarved and shaped
by nature for their particular benefit.
They are quite certain that the Creator,
in the limitless past knew that Sir
George White with 10,000 bad Britons
would retreat into Ladysmith, and that
the kopjes were placed in circular
ranges about the town to help the sol
diers of the Transvaal in the campaigns
certain to accompany the siege.
While this belief in providence no
doubt helps the prmies of the republics,
there are ot) cr and deeper reasons for
thjlr victories. Thrice armed is he
who has his quarrel just.' The farmers
of the Transvaal are fighting for homes
and firesides, while the invaders are
blundering in a desperate attempt to
consummate a crime.
British Terribly Defeated.
Gen. Duller at the head of 40,000
splendid soldiers, with plenty of ar
tillery and cavalry, aud a supply
train Baid to consist of upwards
df 5,000 wagons, crossed the Tu
gela river to relieve the beleagured
garrison at Ladysmith. Bullor made
a rather bombatic address to his men,
assuring them that they had started
for Ladysmith and that there would
be no turning back. He also broadly
bmted that they need nut be very par
ticular about taking prisoners. For'

attacks Ail day Wednesday, of last
week, the battle raged furiously along
the mountain's crest, resulting in a
complete defeat of the British, who
the Boers allege left 1500 dead on the
field of battle. At any event Bifller's
entire army has been hurled back over
the Tugela rivcir, and the fate of Lady
Binitb is probably sealed.

When I lived at Newport, B. I., from.

The British »army had retreated and
abandoned Ladysmith to its fate last
Friday evening. General Buller's story
of the failure at Spion kop differs in
marked degree from the official ac
count published from the Boer camp.
The British general candidly admits
a reverse, but, according to the Boer
accounts, Spion kop was a second -Ma*

to withdraw the force to the south of

by 8 a. m. 'Jan. 2T (Saturday) War

toucht—in sotne eases the lines were

morale of the troops, and that we wore
permitted to withdraw our, cumbcous
ox and mule transports across- the
river, eighty-five yards broad, with
twenty-foot banks and-a verv swift

FIRE AT YORK.
Seveu Story Building Destroyed at a Ion

New York, Jau. 20.—The seven*
story building in Cherry street, occu
pied by the Hey wood Bros. & Wake
field Manufacturing company as a
chair factory, was destroyed by fire
during the xjrevuiciice of a fierce gale,
which made the work of the lireinen
extremely difficult When the fire
broke out there
were about 150 men
at work in the building, who, however. t*.i. ...
were able to escape without injury. 1 ''"ff™1"'
The bursting ot' a tank on the roof of
the building, which precipitated 10,000
gallons of water upon the tire raging
beneath it, generated so much steam
that the walls burst out. Part of the
east wall fell upon the Gerrish ware-
tfuousu me iieywood
Bros, and Wakefield company's, but
was extinguished without serious loss.
BLUE SUNDAY IN BALTIMORE,
Old Puritanic Lawn Rigidly Enforced In
the Oyster City.
Baltimore, Jan.
2u.—The
Sunday
blue laws of Maryland, which in vari
ous forms have been upon the statute
hooks of the state for two centuries,
were rigorously und relentlessly en
forced In this city. Newsdealers, milk
men, Icemen, druggists (for filling pre
scriptions only), aud proprietors of
lunch rooms alone are exempt under,
the law. All other merchants who
were found selling their wares between
midnight and midnight will be called
upon .': .i a few days to appear be
fore the grand jury. On,- cifc-ar store
had a large, decorated sign, reading:
"This Is Hypocrite Day. You Must
Buy Bibles and Not Cigars." In an
other store was a sign: "Proclama
tion—Renewal of the Blue Laws. We
Close on Sunday. Buy Your Supplies
To-Day."
It Is thought the law will become
so ridiculous that It will be repealed.
Catliolie Priest Silenced*
Buffalo, N. Y., Jan. 2!).—Bishop
Quigley has suspended Rev. George
Zurlcher, pastor of St. Joseph's church,
because of statements made by him
from the pulpjt that' certain priests
exacted money offerings for masses on
All Souls' day and misled their people.
When the statements were conveyed
to the bishop he asked the priest for a
written version of his sermon and on
receiving an answer calculated to
awaken controversy the bishop si
lenced the prlesf and assigned another
clergyman to take charge of his parish
work.

and that there is Vhc usual disposi

General Wanen may have decided
It was unsafe to attempt to hold the
position any longer: or. perhaps, he is
seeking a more profitable ascent else
where. Whatever may he the explan
ation of the abandonment of Spion kop

the same temporary moral effect as a
reverse. It appears to have been so
entirely unexpected at the war office
that General Buller's dispatch caused
something in the nature of consterna
tion. The lobbies were soon crowded
and there was evidence on all sides
that the news was keenly felt.

Votv» to Exclude tbe Ut»h
I'olygamlut*
Washington, Jan. 27.—By an over
whelming majority of 268 to SO the
house refused to let Brlgham H. Rob
erts take the oatli of otUce, excluded
him from congress, aud declared his
seat vacant. The scenes attending tbe
final action of the house were not
dramatic, and Roberts did not walk
out with head erect as he had prom
ised to do. At the begluning of' tbe
roll call on the minority substitute,
which provided. for swearing him In
and then expelling him, he' quietly Ire
tired from the.'iiall.
After tbe debate had been concluded,
and a little parliamentary discussion
Indulged In, the result of which was
the ruling out of order an amendment
offered by Representative Lacey of
Iowa, changing tht mnjority.resolution
from exclusion to expulsion, a vote
was taken on the substitt^^offereil
by the minority of the Rolierts investi
gating committee. This resolution de
clared that Roberts was entitled to a
seat, that the oath'should be adminis
tered, and he should afterwards be ex
pelled. The vote on Chis resolution
was 244 nays to 81 yeas.
Of the eighty-one who voted for the
adoption of the minority resolution five
were Republicans—^-Jenkins of Wiscon
sin, Kahn of California, Llttlefield of
Maine, Loud of California, and McOall
of Massachusetts.
Then the vote was taken upon the
majority resolution, which declared
against the. admission of Roberts and
for his exclusion. This was adopted
by a vote of 208 to 50. or a majority
of more than five to .one. The fact
that so many members voted against
the resolution undoubtedly was due to
the fact that they had strong convic
tions on the constitutional right of
Roberts to be sworn In. I/ittlelleld
of Maine was the only Republican who
voted against the resolution, but sev
eral dodged the Issue, and .although
tjiey were in the hall during the roll
oall, did not answer :to their mimes.
These were, notably, Loud, of. Cali
fornia and Coshman of Washington.

"We, Kentuckians here assembled,
In token of all the 'free and equal* men.
of Kentucky, do reassert *the great
and essential principles of liberty and

us at the polls and that, among these

preference.
The Wilfeet'the People*
"We implore? them to not on slight
or technical pretext nor flimsy or triv
ial causes jtftcmlt the subversion of
that supreme law of tbe .land—the will
of the people. We beg. of them that
they revive from the hands of our

that they by their considerate action

The resolutions: are slgnod by
Gbarles Finley, Dr. ThomaB W. Berry,
A. W. Kazor, and Claude Chlnn.
All but .JLadies Excluded.
The lower house of the legislature
met at 11 o'clock aud oh motion of
Cuntrell, DemoCr&tlc leader, a resolu
tion was adopted excluding all but la
dies from the chamber and galleries.
Catron, Republican,'asked the consent
of the house of representatives to per
mit a non-member to present a resolu
tion, but Speaker Trimble ruled that
nobody but a member vould do so.
A rumor is in circulation, but per
sistently denied, that Judge Cantrill of
the local (fircuit court, has summoned
all Democratic deputy sheriffs of tbe
state to come to Frankfort. Common
wealth's Attorney Franklin says he
knows of no such order.
Would Precipitate a Conflict.
Cincinnati, Jan. 20.—A Times-Star
special from Lexington, speaking of
the movement of armed men from
southwestern Kentucky to Frankfort,
adds: "They are to be present at
Frankfort, when Goebel men will at
tempt forcing action on contest over
seats in the house. It is given out
that these Republicans will serve no
tice on Moebel members that they don't
intend seeing Republicans who nave
been. honestly elected thrown out for
Goebel Democrats. This would cause
Speaker Trimble to order the lobbies
and galleries of tbe entire state house
cleared, which, it is believed, would
precipitate the conflict."
Family Has a Narrow Escape.
