Hildyard'* Beleaguered Force*. % DURBAN, Nov. 22 (.10 p. m.">.— Owing to the proximity of the Boers to Pieter aru litzburg it has been necessary tc alter :he defense of Durban. Estcourt is still lilent. All accounts point conclusively t<> a de termined rush of the Boers towards Pie trrrnarltzburg with a very large force. Several thousand men with guns are re ported twenty-five miles from Howick. They are said to be .inder the personal coii'mand of Gen. Joubert. Todays engagement at Mool river found Uie British almost wholly on the defensive. A correspondent of the Natal Adviser says the Boer shells fell' within a short distance of the British troops; | that the shells did little damage; that the shelling continued all day, at inter vals of three to five minutes. According to this advice the Boers are advancing rapidly and under cover where possible. The British artillery was in po sition behind the hotel where Gen. Bar ton and his staff are being accommo dated. Maj. Thornycroft's mounted artillery moved along a ridge to the enemy's left funk. The Devonshire regiment and the Royal Welsh fusileers occupied the trenches. There was but little firing, the correspondent Bays, but the enemy possessed at least one Howitzer, with a range of five miles, and several six pounders. Prince Christian has been appointed to the staff of Gen. Percy Scott, the Durban commander. ALARM IN NATAL. LONDON. Nov. 23.— Although it Is evident that the situation In Natal is again becoming su'fi-' ciently alarming, nothing can be officially ascertained to allay pub.ic anxiety or the curiosity felt regarding the disposl.ion of reinforcements recently landed at Dur ban. The war office dispatches are con- j fined to a mere recital of a few casualties ] at Mooi river, which confirm the reports | cf skirmishes there, but give no details as to how the engagements happened. Sps cial correspondents are only permitted to | describe Maj. Barton's camp at Mooi river vaguely as "large," or "ample." One correspondent says that 7.000 Boers are within twenty-five miles of Uowick Falls, near Pietermaritzburg, and that the inhabitants are fleeing to the capital. Evidently a considerable fores of the en emy is now within thirty or forty mi es of Pietermaritzburg. but it is officially announced from there that no anxiety prevails, the garrison numbering 1,000 men. with six guns. Gen. Joubsn's plan, apparently, is a daring attempt to defear the British re lieving column from Durban in detail, while still attempting the reduction of Ladysmith. A serious attack on Mo >I river camp is now hourly expected, with the object of destroying the bridge at Weston, Should this b? accomplished the Boers would b.- free to turn their atten tion again to Estcourt, while, if it failed, the enemy would retire again on Weenen or rejoin vh.~ investing forces around Lh dysmith. The Boer report that Gen. Hildyard's messenger, asking Gen. White for as sistance, was captured causes some un easiness, but It Is argued that if Gen Hlldyard had not bf>en strong enough to hold out he would some time ago have been obliged to retire on Pieterrharitz bnrg. Therefore, small credence is given the- story. Nothing is known regarding the food supplies of the garrisons thus isolated It '.s believed Estcourt is well provided but there is less confidence In the case of Mool river. There I? no further news from the west ern frontier except the list of casualty. It is announced frnm Paris that Coi de ViHeboia Mareuil, a French officer has accepted the post of chief of staff to Gen. Joubert. In succession to Col Sf-hiele, the general officer who was v.ounded and taken prisoner at Eland* lacgte. From the same source It is re ported that two Russian officers Lieut Col. Gonetski, of the guards, and Gen' Seltse, of another crack Russian regi ment, have resigned and are going to join the Boers. A dispatch tc the Daily News from Not tingham Road, Natal, dated Tuesday. bi ys the Boers have arrived near there. RELIEF OF KIMBERLEY. The Daily Mail publishes a dispatch from Nauuwpoort. dated Wednesday which says that a large force under Gan Metheun has creased the Orange river and is advancing to the relief of Kimb-r --ley. The- Pally Mail says this morning: "We are able to confirm the report that orders i hare been issued to mobilize a fixth division at Aldershot for service in SouOj Africa, or wherever it may be wanted." The Morning Post's correspondent at Pi. terniaritzburar telegraphing Tue«dav evening says: "The Boers arc now all around Mooi Ki\-cr station, where anotfier of your cor respondents is reported tc be with the tl'eops. LOOTING THE FARMSTEADS. The Daily News has the following from Pietermaritzburs-, under Wednesdav'a date: "Vuur correspondent managed to escape from the Mooi River district yesterday before the arrival of 6,000 Boers, who ar« looting- the farmsteads in all directions" The native Boers, encouraged by the suc cess <>f the Transvaai^rs, join in the loot ing. Th-? main body of Boers made a rapid march from Ulundi, southwest of IJetcnurt. to a point near Fort Notting ham, south of the railway, in a single day. Th-3y are within forty miles of Plctermaritsburg, at the farthest, and it is said that they intend to attack the town." FUTURE OF FREE STATE. LONDON. Nov. 22. -Sir Charles Dilke M. P. for the Forest of Dean division of Gloucestershire, speaking at Chelsea this evening said: "When the British forces enter Bloem fcnteia some declaration regarding the fty %l i*ml fbk future will have to be made. If the peace to be offered la one In which Cape Colony can concur, the Free State government will abandon the violent element in the Transvaal forces. "The settlement. In order to pacify South Africa, as Canada has been paci necl, must be a settlement in which the constitutional position of Cape Colony and Natal must play the leading part. The big guns and forts must be got rid cf. 1 " BRITISH SORTIE CHECKED. PRETORIA, Nov. 21.— The following dispatch has been received from Boer headquarters near Ladysmith: "The field cornets of the Pretoria com. mando reported that British gun car riages and some horsemen had been heard moving last night at Ladysmith. Our outposts observed the British endeavor ing to sortie towards Lombard's Kop and Bulawama hill, where our Maxims opened fire. The range was too great and, there, fore, our artillery began shelling, which drove the British back. About daybreak the. British batteries fired upon our po sitions. Two burghers were wounded. It is supposed that the object of the sortie was to relieve the Estcourt force, who had sent an urgent message to Ladysmi-h requesting aid. The burghers captured the messenger, but finally allowed him to proceed." It is reported that the Natal police have captured a number of Trarevaal dispatch riders. In his latest report Gen. Joubert says: "I am cutting off the retreat of the Estcourt troop 3to Pletermaritzburg and driving them back on the Tugela river." It is reported that the B^er commander with the forces near Ladys-nith "compre hensively surveyed the different points from which the fall of Ladysmith can be Insured." WAR CASI'ALTIES. The official returns of the casualties of the Transvaal since the outbreak of the war phow that ninety men have been killed and 200 wounded, of whom'a num ber have recovered and returned to the front. Newspaper reports from Cape Colony Ray a general rising of th? Dutch farmer's 1< imminent in Xatal. and that the co'o nial Boers in those districts which have proclainu-d republican territory have al ready joined the Boer forces. Gen. Snyman, who is outside of Mafe klng 1 , reports heavy firing Monday after noon. REOCCTPATION OF NAUUWPOORT CAPE TOWN, Nov. 21.-On Sunday I,COO men. sent by train from De Aar reoccupiod Nauuwpoort. Soon after this an attempt was made by disloyal Dutch to destroy a bridge three miles In their rear, but it was frustrated, and the dam age was repaired. Another naval contingent from the bat tles-hlp Monarch and cruiser Dorch has left Simons Town for the front. FREE STATE BURGHERS. DURBAN, Nov. 22,-About £.000 Free Stale burghers, with gun«, are marching from the west by way of Fort Notting ham. ° The Boers opened fire with artillery on Mool river camp from the north but without casualties to the British. JOHN HAYS HAMMOND. NEW YORK, Nov. 22. - John Hays Hammond, who became prominent dur ing the Jameson raid in the Transvaal, and is well known from the responsible position he holds in connection with min ing enterprises in various parts of the f world, arrived here on the White Star j steamship Teutonic with his wife today. i Mr. Hammond expressed himself as very grateful for the kind interest shown by ! his countrymen in all parts of America during his troubles in South Africa at ! the time of the Johannesburg revolution.

MACRUM AND THE BOERS. WASHINGTON. Nov. 22.— United States Consul Mac-rum, at Pretoria, has asked j the state department for leave of ab sence with permission to take advantage of It at once. He pleads domestic rea- I sons for leaving his post. «nd offers to I place in the consulate as the representa- I tlve of the United State Vice Consul Attelbury, who is on the ground. The department, however, refused to accede to the request, and Mr. Macrum wilf stay where he Is unless he sees fit to quit his post without permission. It is learned that so far Mr. Macrum has not j been prohibited by the Boer government ; from caring for the welfare of the- Brit ish subjects now in the Transvaal and I the Free State, or, at least he has not I !so notified the state department. There ; has been some friction encountered in ! the efforts of the Britlsh>governrnent to secure permission fur the United States consul to disburse funds for the benefit of the Fritish soldiers held as prisoners of war. FOR RELIEF OF BOERS. NEW YORK. Nov. 22.— A company, with John V. Pruyn, of Albany, as chairman, was originated in this cliy today to as sist Red Cross work in the South African republics, especially within the Boer lin P s. The committee is in no way allied with the American Red Cross society. The or ganization was brought about on the sug gestion of an Englishman who made j known the poor facilities of the Boers for caring for their sick, wounded and ! dead. If sufficient funds are sent to the committee, the families of the Boer dead I and wounded will be assisted. It is the intention of the committee to send all the money to the Netherlands Red Cross, which is in the field and needs all the assistance It can get. -^b- QUIET RESTORED.

After the informal exchange of greet ings President Conde Hainan said: ' The mission of thi Commercial club Is to further the interests and progress of St. Paul, und it is weil within its fieid when it honors the gutsc of the evening. We "are met to rejoice over the unexpact ed return of one of St. Paul's most dis tinguished citizens, where he was an honored representative at that convention that is the first step in bringing about an era when there will be njth.ng but 'Peaca on earth and good will to man.' We wel come him not only because he Is a great i dignitary of a church which has had a '■ powerful influence in the civilization of i the world, but because he is a citizen of ! St. Paul and our friend and our neigh j bor." Mayor Kiefer extended a welcome on i behalf of the city government ar.d was i followed by Judge C. E. Flandrau, who saiU: A PLEASANT DUTY. My Dear Archbishop Ireland Tour fel i low townsmen have chosen me on ihis pleasing occasion to tell you w T hat they think of you. and 1 assure you they could not have imposed a more agre — ■ able duty upon me. Many of us nay« known you since you were a boy fre?h. from Burnchurch. in the famous Irish county of Kilkenny, and we well knew your good father before you. We have watched your career from 'youth to early manhood, through all the phases of I student life, priest, soldier, citizen and | bishop, until you have readied almost the < highest pinnacle of your profession. We i have been deeply interested in your early i struggle with the cure in intemperance, j and shared with you your triumph over that evil. We have sympathized with | you In your efforts to aid the poor set i tiers on the frontier to find homes. We I witnessed with pride your departure for ! the front as the spiritual adviser of one ; of our gallant regiments in the Civil war, i and felt assured that had it been in , harmony with your priestly uniform, you would have had a musket on your 1 shoulder, or a sword by your side. We have been captivated by your eloquence, and have profited by your wisdom on , countless occasions. We saw with pride j your opposition to the introduction of Cahensleyism into this country, because it conflicted with our ideas of the best citizenship, and the highest progress of our country. We have followed you in your advocacy of "Americanism" in your church and have rejoiced in the success ful outcome of your endeavors in that line, against the opposition of nearly all Europe, the result of which has been to convince the pope in Rome, the Catholics of France, and the Protestants in Ameri ca that the Catholic church can exict In perfect harmony and unity in the most liberal republic in the world. Our domestic relations with you as a fellow cieizen of the state and town have always been of the most cordial nature, as we have ever found you on the side of right, toleration and exalted patriotism. The fame of states and cities does not wholly depend upon bricks and mortar wealth and culture. These elements form their corporal bodies. but- citizens of character, worth and patriotism, with broad and world embracing ideas, whose lives are devoted to the well being of their fellowmen. constitute their souls, which live forever. I am proud to say my dear bishop, that it is the general sentiment of your fellow citizens that the world-wide fame which Minnesota and St. Paul enjoy is largely the result of the possession by you of so great a share ef these enviable attributes, and your *ren eroug exertion of them in the cause of liberty, toleration and righteousness. At the conclusion of Judge Flandrau's address Bishop •M. N. GllUert was in troduced. He Bald In part: BISHOP GILBERTS TRIBUTE. "This Is an event motaentouß and sig nificant in the experience of the city of St. Paul. As a cltl«en who ha a livea here for nearly twenty ye;ars I know that Archbishop Ireland is fully in sympathy with everything that enter? into tha wel fare of the city and of the state. We are brothers, working hand in hand for the uplifting of this city in the way of righteousness and morality. Archbishe»p Ireland would be a leader for righteous ness in any city on the face of the earth. We honor him because he is known to us and because we respect him and his motives. He is not only a prominent cit izen of St. Paul, but a prominent citizen of the nineteenth century." M. D. Munn extended a welcome on behalf of the Commercial club and was followed by Archbishop Ireland, who was greeted with applause. He said: THE ARCHBISHOPS REPLY. Friends and Fellow Citizens:" As my friends and fellow ciiisens, you greet me as your friend and fellow citizen I thank you. I am deeply moved by the words addressed to me in the name of so many of the citizens of St. Paul, and of other towns of the state of Minnesota Not to appreciate the value of this evening's manifestation, not to experience by it the tnrill of joyous gratitude, would argue 1 tM. m , me is not a mind t0 apprehend nobaity and generoatty of thought and action in fellow man; that mine is not a heart to soften beneath the warmth of kindness, to vibrate In response to the touch of disinterested friendship While I journeyed through foreign lands it was my fortune to receive not infre quently from distinguished assemblages tokens of favor and of good will, of which the sweet memory will never de part from me. But nowhere was the as semblage so dear to me, as the present one, nowhere so full of significance and of promise. This evening's gathering speaks for my home— for St. Paul and Minnesota The voice of home has for the soul a charm which that of no other land can possess; for there, as nowhere else, are the treasured results of our life work and the endearments of our heart. And if there Is in words of commendation a substance that we may priz?, whether as a comforting- sign that past years have not been spent altogether in vain, or as an inspiration of encouragement to do well in the future, the commendation given In our home has more value than that g'ven in other lands, inasmuch as it comes from those who are In a better position to speak with due regard for the facts. And where, ts in our own home, can tokens and promises of friendship be so precious? For it is in our home where our years are to be spent and the ills and pains of life are to be met, that friendship's cheer bears sweetest fruit. One is fortunate to live in a communi ty where the citizens are generous enough to speak to a fellow citizen words of friendly approval. It is a proverb no man is a prophet In his own country. Near neighbors know our shortcomings, no tess than our good qualities. It Is al most inherent in human nature to give so much attention to the shortcomings that no time is left to see the good Qualities. Such evidently. Is not the cas« in St. Paul or Minnesota; here men are large-minded and LARGE-HEARTED. They see others at their best; they p^ss lightly over defects ff th*y at all notice them, and give praise wherever there ap pears to be room for praise. If a man is not a prophet in St. $ Paul the fault is his own, not that of 'his fellow citi zens. I cannot but wish for my own «ake and for that of those whom it is my privilege to serve _that a4l thar has been said of me this evening' were as true as friendly hearts have persuaded friend ly tongues to declare. How-ever much a man is known by his fellow citizens, he is known best of. all by. himself. While listening- to your affectionate word.- I must in truth see in them rather what I have Btriven to be than>«what I actually have been. They are, however, spoken to a purpose, for they trill spur me to renewed efforts bo that in the future I may be in Bpeoeh and *ct less distant from the standard set before^ me than may have been the case in the past. So much is certainly true: I have ar dently loved my city, my- state, my coun try; I have always deemed it my urgent duty to do whatever was possible for the benefit of my fellow citizens, without distinction of creed or race. The min ister of a church whose principles and laws are for me inviolable, to the spiritual welfare of whose children I am pledged by my ordination vov;s, I have never believed that I must not see in men out side the ranks of that church, my fellow men and my brothers. I have never be lieved that it is not my solemn duty to spend myself and be spent for men in the fullest outpour of ray soul's energies. For me humanity is the mark of man's brotherhood, and to its Remotest frontier humanity receives my ltove. Nor have I held the doctrine that a minister of re ligion is I'mlted in his work for men to strictly spiritual affairs' To me religion embraces the whole roan, and the whole world— it is as Catholic as the divine love which it aims to apply to the world. While, if you wish, nry primary field is the strictly spiritual. I hold that, ft in a lesser, siill In ■as true a sense, my rightful lield la th^ whole range of hu man interests— morn!, intellectual, so cial and oven material. Being a Catholic and a bishop, I do not cease to be a man and a citizen; aye, as such I should be the more thoroughly the man and the <itizen. PRACTICAL CHRISTIAN CHARITY. It is a notable feature of this atisem blaye, that while I am'- .a bishop of the Catholic church, and profess myself the sternest upholder of its teachings. I am greeted by fellow citbtena and friends the greater part, of whom are non-Catho lics, and that ©4?e of the distinguished gentlemen who has. just addressed me is a high-stationed prelate of a Protes tant church. We have learned the great lessons of practical Christian charity ?^ f L. of Practical Am^Hcan citizenship.

Hobart, vice presi dent of the United States, will take place on Saturday. The morning services at the residence will be attended by only members of Mr. Hobart's family, Presi dent McKinley and his cabinet, and Mrs. Hobart's Intimate friends. At the Church of the Redeemer, in Paterson, the public service will be held at 2:30 o'clock in the afternoon. The body will not lie in state in the city hall, as was desired by the city au thorities, but on Friday afternoon the casket will be open In the library- of his late home, and for three hours the pub lic may view the face of the late vice president. The body lies in a handsome casket of cak, the plate bearing the inscription: : 1844. : : Garret A. Hobart. : : 1899. : The following official statement was given out at the Hobart residence by Private Secretary Evans tonight: "The funeral services over the body of THE ELUSIVE FILIPINO. the late vice president will be held at the Church of the Redeemer, Paterson, on Saturday, Nov. 25. at 2:30 p. m. Inas much as the seating accommodation of the church is entirely inadequate, it will be necessary that seats be reserved for the various national, state and local offi cials., representatives of the organiza tions with which Mr. Hobart was con nected and intimate personal friends of the fanniy. It is, therefore, impossible to provide for the general public until various officials, representatives and friends have been accommodated- Pre liminary to the services on Saturday a brief service will be held at the Hobart he me for the immediate family and close friends. The body will then be placed in the library room, where the public will have an opportunity to view it. The In terment will be at the convenience of the family, at Cedar Grove cemetery." Four troops of the governor's guard will take part in the ceremony, and will probably act as an escort from the house to the church and thence to the cemetery. The troopp will also act fs a bod\ guard to President McKimey. MRS. HOBART BETTER. PATERSON. N. J., Nov. 22.-Mrs. Ho bart, who had been worn out by her long vigil at the bedside of her lat? husband, the vice president, was feeling so much better today that she was able to assist Attorney General Griggs, her husband's law partner, Albert A. Wilcox, and Pri vate Secretary Evans, in the prepara tions for the funeral of Mr. Hobart Sat urday afternoon. The attorney general informed the family today that Presi dent McKinley would attend the funeral. Regarding Mr. Hobart's wealth it is re lated that shortly after the election of lSf6i in reply to questions by friends. h» said that he could only give a guess; that he was connecied with a great many concerns, and a director In over sixty. If his stock could be disposed of for wliat it was worth he thought it would bring between two and three million dollars?, while at a sacrifice sale it would not amount to half that. The life insurance policies on Vice President Hobart's life aggregated about $350,000. Onl* company alone had issued a policy on his life for 5100,000. TOKENS OF RESPECT.
