who did not take time
"There hare been ao many land schemer

tising the sale of any lands without our

"As we understand It, t wo corporations own 200,000 acres of hardwood lands
Mbort distance back from Mnnising Bay, hi tbe neighborhood of tbe Pictured
Rock., and in addition to the lands belonging to tbe two corporations, there are
winds owned by private parties, making a total of about 400,000 acres. These
land would, it la claimed, when cleared, raise abundant crops, as tbe soil is well
oited for agricultural purposes.

fact, tha town may now ha In the hands
of the Matabeles nnd one of the most ter

from Buluwnyo have greatly increased
theaniiy Mt for the safety of that
place. Military rm-n, acouta, Dutchmen
and RnglUhmt'ti, civilian a of all clataea,
veteran troopers and government official!
concur In the tatementthat the governor
of Cape Colony, lr Hercules Ho bi neon,
baa not been told the truth If ha has noti
fied the home government that Buluwayo
I In no danger. It U evident to every
body here that the British at Buluwayo
are In a moat critical condition.
Weak In No tuber.
The chief point of thulr weakness la La
numbers and tha InjiiHMiilty of the hordes
of Matabelet gathering for the attack.
Then, again, large number of Matabeles,
p returned to le friend Ilea, beva by soms
exouee or other eucctoded In entering the
town, and It la well known that they bars
planned to rise and atrlke- at -the British
at soon aa the warrors of tbe Matabeles
are beard outald the iine of defajnas.
Most of tha Matabeles In Buluwayo g4
there by pretending to be aeeklng ths
protection of tha w Id tea. and tha latter
were fool la h enough to fall Into tha trap.
Theae Matabeles are armed and an out
break rauat soon occur. It lias been stated
that Buluwayo Is hold by 1,'JOJ men; this
la not correct. At stated -In theae die
patches the number of fighting men at
Buluwayo U uudcr 9U0 and of this simsjII
number, companxl with tha 15. (XX) Mate

Other dinpatchee, hoasvar, announce
that a strona; force of the remaining 000
whites intendod to - laave Buluwayo Prt
day moralng to attack a Mttabaie iiapi,
composed of Lobengnla'a .crack lirtbetn
giment, from which tha. native police,
who have been shown to have started thv
tbe rebellion, were recruited. ". This ' Imp!

have been aecretly profiting for some
tlmebythet drill and tautlca of police do
sorters, and aa the latter took wttbjShent
their arm and ammunition and alt the
other arms and ammunition they-'could'
lay their hand on, tha Iiubexu regiment;
always moat formidable, is likely to prove
more than a match for the . email 'British
force. In fact, nobody here can under
stand the rashness of such a sortie being
permitted, and it Is feared that the awful
mistake of Isanriula may be repeated.
May lla Ambuahed.
The Britiah luay be entloed Into the
buaiiby a feint,' and while tbey are there
engaicttd with overahfilinlng numbers
the main body of the Ma'.abele army
may be hurled against Buluwayo and
sweep over it lu upltj ot ths defenses and
the rapid firing gun rt ady to receive ths
enemy. Buaides, as already atatsd, the
attack of the Matabolos from the outside
Is more than likely to be assisted by a ris
ing of the Matabttlo lnld the fortifica
tions. This has boeh anticipated and
guarded against aa far as possible, but
people hire predict a great disaster If tbe
slim British force opposing the 15,000
Matabeles is allowed to divide itself and
engage In a sortls against the enemy.
Tha arcat trouble at Buluwayo seams to
bothattho majority of the leaders ars
dashing, dire devil men, who are prons
to engage tha enemy first and estimate
his numbers later, generally too late.

New Yokic, April 20. Bradstreot's say:
Fovorablo weather, except In some north
western states, baa stimulated demand
for seeaonabiM merchandise, notably light
summer clothing. On tho whole the
week presented a distinct gain. This 1
not so much apparent at eastern centers,
except Baltimore and Pittsburg, as in tho
central Mississippi river valley. At some
.northwestern cities the movement of
merchandise has declined, but at a num- '
ber in the' east it is unchanged,' while
southern cities in moat Instances report -business
quiet, and in others less favonv;
bl-. There is a better demand for cotton
machinery to go south; eastern cotton
dyers are busier, and there is a demand
for hardware, machinery and locomotives.

Speealatlou Much Healthier.
Increased activity and advancing quota
lions have given a much healthier appear
ance to speculation. The movement which
developed this week has been attended by
a number of gratify lug circumstances,
among which a leading place should be
given to the reappearance of publlo Inter
est and to the fact that attention haa
turned from the manipulated .industrials
to railroad BhageiuaBd Ute jnarectimato
speculatlres 4jrnfr-ly,, Thf bullish dV-j
monstration is, to a corUun extent baaed
upon the expectation of greater business
activity with the progress of spring and
the prevalent Impression that despite the
damage already done to winter wheat tbe
season opens auspiciously for other cxdps.
