that office will cease to be a sinecuie or

Ills Stubborn Stand Against Lord
Robert* Puzzle* the British-
Gen. Bailer Delayed by
Lack of Supplies.
LONDON, June 18, 3:30 a. m.-That
Commandant General Louis Botha
should have been able to stand for two
days against Lord Roberts, and then lo
retreat without losing any guns, or hav
ing any of his men capturpd, is taker,
to mean that he has a force which th ■
British must still reckon as formidable
when acting defensively.
The pacification of the whole of the
Transvaal, especially the wide spaces far
from railways, is looked upon as a busi
ness requiring months rather than weeks.
Meanwhile everything goes well for the
British army. A Boer bulletin issued
Juno 12 at Machadodorp says:
"Both wings of the federal forces
touched the advancing enemy at 10 a. m.
yesterday, east of Pretoria. Fighting
continued until dark. The enemy, though
In overwhelming numbers, were checked
along a line of thirty-six miles, and the
burghers succeeded in driving t-ic.k their
right wing rive miles. Two burghers
were killed and ten wounded."
Another Machadodorp announcement Is
that the First regiment of Gen. Buller's
fore? to attack Almond's Nek was "an
nihilated," but, as the British were In
overwhelming force the burghers were
compelled to abandon the Nek."
A dispatch from Lourenzo Marques,
dated yesterday, says:
"President Kruger is holding on to his
gold and Is issuing paper notes from a
press In his private car. The Boers' coin
stock is exhausted and the officials are
now paying out plain gold discs un
stamped. Some who have declined to ac
cept notes have taken their salaries In
gold bars. The Boer government Is stiil
paying out much gold in that way.''
Two steamers arrived at Lourenzo
Marques, yesterday, bringing several
thousand tons of supplies consigned to
Portuguese merchants, but destined for
the Boers.
One hundred Americans, Frenchmen,
Germans and Hollanders have arrived
there by various steamers en route for
the Transvaal.

LONDON, June 14. — Mrs. Gladstone,
widow of William E. Gladstone, the Eng
lish statesman, died at 5:40 p. m. today.
Mrs. Gladstone, who had been uncon
scious for about twelve hours, died with
out recovering consciousness.
The news wa, immediately conveyed
to the queen, the Prince of Wales, the
dean of Westminster, the dean of Lin-
coin, Sir William Vernon Harcourt, Sir
Henry Campbell-Baimerman, Arthur J.
Balfour and others.
In the course of the evening William
Gladstone, heir to Hawarden, arrived
from Eton, shortly followed by two Bis
ters from London. The bells of Ha
warden church rang muffled peals.
By c-jurtesy of the dean of Westminster
and in accordance with arrangements
made in IS2B, the funeral will be held in
the abbey. The interment will probably
take place on June 19, being of as pri
vate a character as possible.

Colombian Revolution Believed to
Be at a n End.
WASHINGTON, June 14.— Dr. Curevo
Marques, charge d'affaires of the Colom
bian legation, today received from Pana
ma officials bulletins giving details of the
recent bloody engagement between the
government troops and the revolutionists.
One of the bulletins is signed by the gen-
I eral in command of the government
troops and reads:
"I consider the revolution ended. Th>?
enemy's army, after the fighting, num
bered only 4,000 men, and I think they
cannot secure reinforcements. They have
exhausted all their supply of 1.200,000 cart
ridges. Their loss is 1,000 dead, including
ten chiefs and many subordinate officers.
They h;ive 1,500 wounded. These figures
are furnished me by the prisoners, some
of them persons ef importar.ee."
