An Ominous Veil Hangs Over
the Movements of Gens
White and Yule
It is Believed However That the Two
British Forces Have Effected a
Junction Near Ladvsmith
Squadron of Hussars Cut Off By the
Boers But They Brilliantly Fought
Iheir V ay Through Three
of Them Are Missing
London Oct 20 With unconscious
humor a Cape Town correspondent
telegraphed Wednesday The censor
ship which is aiwas a delicate mat
ter is working- smoothly and without
a hitch
This exactlr hits off the state of af
fairs at present An ominous veil is
still drawn over the movements of
Gen Sir George Stewart White and
Gen Yule Keyond belated Ladysmith
dispatches concerning the Elandslaagte
fight which are still filtering in the
British public is left in complete dark
ness and to conjecture over cooked
war office dispatches The officials of
the war office Wednesday evening said
that very few dispatches have arrived
and that nothing further was to be ex
pected until morning
Since it is practically cei tain that
Gen Yule has now effected a junction
with Gen White although tuis was
not brought about Tuesday night as
announced by the Daily Mai out some
time on Wednesday and as both are
now in a position of safety conjecture
concerns itself chiefly with t te man
ner of Gen Yules retreat That it
was hasty is evident Was it disorder
ly Was any considerable camp equip
ment abandoned Was there any fight
ing on the way Such ques
tions and like them the puu
is anxiously asking Since the receiot
of Gen Whites curious first descrip
tion of the Ladysmith fight in which
the British lost a hundred men iittie
reliance can be placed on the official
dispatches While the concealment of
the facts regarding1 Gen Yules retreat
can be amply justified on the ground
of keeping the intelligence from the
Boers the hiding of the news respect
ing the Hussars and Fusiliers who
were apparently captured in the battle
of- Glencoe is severely criticised no in
timation even having been given that
the officers were missing
London Oct 26 A squadron of hus
sars usually consists of three troops of
28 men each or about 83 officers and
men of the ISth Hussars are supposed
to have been captured
A dispatch to the Daily Telegraph
from Ladysmith dated Monday says
Thirty of the ISth Hussars who
were sent from Glencoe to intercept
the retreat of the Boers jrora Elands
laagte were cut off by the enemy Un
der Sergt Baldrey they brilliantly
fought their way across the Biggars
berg the enemy pursuing and firing
at them at a range of 300 vards along
the passes They arrived here at 10
oclock this morning Three of the
troop are missing- owing to the break
down of their horses The Boers used
a Maxim A lieutenant of the Hussars
with a party was driven back to Glen
coe The Hussars were fired at as iar
down as Modersprujt
The war office returns show that the
total British casualties since the be
ginning of hostilities reach 597 IS of
ficers having been killed and 55 wound
ed and 70 men killed and 4S5 wounded
There are 13 unaccounted for
This total however does not include
the squadron of the 18th Huzzars
which went astray near Dundee and
the officers of the Dublin Fusiliers
The report of heav3 losses sent from
Rietfontein came as an unpleasant sur
prise as Gen Whites telegram to the
ware office Wednesday gave the im
pression that there was merely a
Gen Sir Redvers Buller is expected
to arrive at the Cape early next week
and the indications are that some
troops have already arrived at the
front and been in the fighting whose
arrival has not yet been announced

Miss Sinan K Anthony to Retire
C hief Engineer of the Navy Fails to See
Any 1eneflt to the Department
Electricity Steam
Washington Oct 26 The three
leading features of the annual report
of Adm Melville engineer-in-chief
of the navy are the chapters devoted
to personnel to the merits of electric
versus steam machinery and to the
proposition to consolidate the naval
construction bureau The general les
sons of the war it is said were in no
way indicative of any desirable change
in the machinery of our ships with
the exception of increasing the evapor
ating plants and the adoption with all
practical and economical promptness
of the water tube xyve of boilers
Adm Melville expresses his inability
to see indications of the benefit to the
navy which was expected to result
from the operations of the personnel
bill lie said that his hope was to see
a vast addition to the number of offi
cers who would give attention to en
gineering matters and he still hopes
that a comprehensive union of the line
and engineering vocations Will result
and that no department regulations
may be permitted to exist which will
prevent this consummation Depart
mental regulations insisting upon
service of the line officers alternately
in the engine rooms as well as upon
deck are necessary he sa3s to give
them practice
An important chapter in the report
deals with the scope of the work now
executed by the bureati of steam en
gineering which is set out in order to
combat the propositionlo amalgamate
the constructive bureaus of the navy
department a matter which the ad
mral regrets has even been speculated
on He says that not only is the trend
of modern mechanical work in all
branches towards increased specializa
tion but the wisdom of such a trend
is not questioned by the leading talent
in the outside world of constructive
The steam engineering bureau has
1 finaliv arrived at the conclusion that
it is a mistaken policy to carry so far
along the practice of driving the aux
iliary machinery of ships by electrici
ty and the present reporl presents a
strong line of reasoning to support it

The lists have been formally opened
for candidates to the chair of physiol
ogy in the University of Edinburgh left
vacant by the deatli of Prof Ruther
ford A number of quite distinguished
names have already been presented
The emoluments of the chair are oili
cially announced at 7C0U per annum
says the Medical Record
Not a few of the Scotch chairs are
surprisingly well paid The chair of
anatomy in Edinburgh by dint of va
rious hereditary grants and dues
which have been accumulated is re
ported to be worth 20000 per annum
Several chairs in both Edinburgh and
Glasgow draw from 8000 to 12000
and even in Aberdeen far north as it is
a number of the chairs both scientific
and medical run about 5000
In spite of our huge donations and
legacies to universities and colleges
we are really falling behind in America
in the matter of salaries for much to
my surprise I find that the class of
teachers who with US are getting 2500
to 4000 and there are few enough of
any class at the latter figure receive
in England from 4000 to 0000 Even
the German universities are becoming
more liberal for when in Perlin this
summer several privat doeents inquired
as to the supposed large salaries in
America and were greatly disappoint
ed when they learned their real figure
The leading chairs in the University
of Berlin are worth from 10000 to
15000 a year chiefly from a share in

Music lias an Inspiring Effect mid
Aids in Dispelling Weari
ness on the March
The utility of music in matters per
taining to war is probably one of the
greatest forces At the present day in
all the armies of the world musical war
signals are considered not only use
ful but absolutely indispensable The
infantry drill regulations of many
countries give the music and signifi
cance of more than 60 trumpet signals
calls of naming of assembling of
alarm of service and so on besides a
dozen or more drum and fife signals
all of which is a definite language to
But its use is net merely confined to
signaling for music Js used in other
ways for purposes of war In the way
of dispelling weariness on the march
nothing is equal to the music of a brass
band Lord Wolseley says Pearsons
has remarked that troops that sing as
they march will not only reach their
destination more quickly and in better
fighting condition than those ho
march in silence but inspired b the
music and words of the national sog
will feel that self confidence which is
the mother of victory
Probably savages are the most sus
ceptible to the warlike feeling inspired
by a certain class of musi It arouses
their anger incites their fanaticism
and by accompanying their war dances
in time of peace it arouses their lust
of war For this reason it is among
warlike nations that early music was
most developed

j 10000 military musicians Other power-
