CAPTURE OF DE WET AND STEYN Tbat Is Lord Roberts's Nert Mo-e Lord Roberts Sends Report of the R.ittlp nf November fi Canadian I Dragoons Captured v. ere Released By tbe Boerat New York, Nov 10. Says the London correspondent of the Tribune: Colonel Le Gallais. who commanded the British forces in the brilliant action near Kroonstad, in the Transvaal, and was killed, was one of General Kitch ener's men. who greatly distinguished himself in the Khartoum campaign and was one. or" the best cavalry officers in the British army. De Wet is now the real leader of the Boer cause, and his prestige will be impaired by this serious defeat. A dozen other Boer generals are still in the field. Botha, whose health is bet ter. is on the veldt near Waterval. and ! Viljoen is near him with Delarey. Schalkburger is in the mountains near Lydenburg and Erasmus is in ttie south. Grobier and Lemmer are in various sections of the Transvaal. Lord Roberts has evidently made the capture of Le Wet and Steyn his next work, and is employing his mobile mounted forces to hunt them down at all hazards. London. Nov 10. Lord Roberts, telegraphing from Johnuesburg under date of November H, reports to the war office as follows: General Knox states that he takes no credit for the very successful en gagement of November l, which was due, in the first instance, to the de termination of Le Gallais never to lose touch with the enemy, and. sec ondly, to the able way in which 1 )e Lisle handled the firing line after La Gallais and Ross were wounded. "Smith-Dorrien reports that the two days' fighting mentioned was very hard, liis force consisted of iTitl mounted troops from the tifth Lan cers, the Royal Canadian Dragoons and mounted rilies, two Royal Cana dian artillery guns, four guns of tile Kighfy-fourtii battery and OOP infantry of the Suffolks and Shropshire. "The Boers were met soon after Starting from Belfast and hung on the front flanks and rear until the Komati river was reached, where they stood at a very strong position. From this they were forced to retire by a wide turning movement by the Suffolk? and the Canadian mounted troops around their Hank. All ttie first day Boer signal tires were lighted in all direc tions, and before morning they were strongly reinforced. "Our casualties the first doy were six killed and twenty wounded. oli'iefty of the Shropshires. who fought splen didly. The next day the Boers tried to seize the strong position on the bank of the Komati. from which they were beaten out November G. but were prevented by Colonel Evans, with the Canadian mounted troops and two of the Eighty-fourth guns, galloping two miles anid seizing it in the nick of time. The rear on the return march was defended by Colonel Lessard. with Ihe Cauadiau Dragoons and two Royal Canadian guns under Lieutenant Mor rison. "Smith Dorrien says no praise can be too high for the devoted gallantry these troops showed in keeping off the enemy from the infantry convoys. "In the afternoon an event unprece dented in this war occurred when some 200 mounted Boers suddenly charged the rear guard to within sev enty yards, when they were stopped by the Canadian Dragoons. During the light sixteen of the Canadians fell into the hands of the enemy who treated them kindly and released them after removing their own dead and wound ed, during which operation the Cana . dians were compelled to lie on their faces in order that they might not see how heavily the Boers had suffered. Our casualties were two killed and twelve wounded. WARNING LIGHTS. Tests Made To-day of Lights Author t ized By Congress. Washington. Nov 10.

Igu oihee expresses undis guised relief that it will not have to (teal with a new wet uf diplomats iu th's critical slate of affairs in the far east and in other parts of the world. Among the columns of comments ap pearing in the journals there is com mon to ali an expression of surprise at tile re.iurn to power of the existing governments of Great Britain ' .the United States and Canada, and. right ly or wrongly, the deduction is drawn that this reversal of the universal or der of tilings is due to the spread of iii-pcrialist'.c ideas" among ihe Eng lish speaking peoples. Amid this un usually keen appreciation of events oc curring on ihe American continent, the return of General Buller excites only a faint ripple of enthusiasm. The ancient controversy on the sub ject of the Delagoa Bay railroad award is in a fair "way to be finally settled at last. Communications are still pass ing on tli 1 s .b'ect between Washington and London, but only one minor point remains unsettled, and this should tun I ire vent the bondholders from receiv ing their money in a few days. Another international matter likely to come up between the United States and tire-it Britain is the suggestion to suppress the Filipino junta at Hons Kocg. No instruction have yet been received at the United States embassy to this end. though should the United States ambassador be instructed to apnly for the suppression of the junta it is likely his request would be grant ed. An official of the foreign otliee aaid to a representative of the Asso ciated Pres: "The extent of the sfps we could take in this matter entirely depends on the strength of the case Washington can make out arrainst the junta. If it proved the junta is materially assist ing the cause of the Filipinos we, cer tainly, she.ll only be acting in the spirit of ordinary international friend ship in suotires-ing the organisation. Moreover, the British empire lias no des;re to harbor such bodies as jun tas." Those who have long agitated against the docking of hor?es' tail have won a great victory.

Daily the American article is gaining headwav. One agent, after three years' work, cot 1.200 large customers turn-over this year amounting to mmy thou sands of pounds. According to the Daily. Mail the ability of the American firms to compete s stvcef-sfully is chiefly due to the "superiority of the American la-ts. which are modelled on the human foot, and also to tbe large outputs of well regulated fac tories, in which work is done by the piece instead of on time, as prevails in Great Britain, with the very latest machinery." The widow of Cantain Mayne Reid. TT. S. A., has been discovered in a poverty-stricken condition, in spite of the popularity her husband's novels once achieved. The new United Free church of Scot land is meeting with serious opposition in ihe Highlands. The bitter, cov enanting zeal Hint animates the sturdv Highlanders has been aroused by th" belief that the principles of the Free church are compromised.

Hundreds of scholars rnd teachers also left the city this morning on the C"f and 8:12 trains, nnd they were all bound for one destination, and that was New Haven. Into New Haven from another ilirection came another train loud of High school foot ball players and their admiring friends. This v.-as the Meriden contingent that was supposed 10 lay the colors of the Warerhury champions low in the (lust on iale field. W lieu tne two oppos ing faction had assembiec" out on that Held that has been the scene of so many hard battles, the cheers of the enthusiasts of each team echoed and re-echoed over the field, and- the echoes were wafied into Waterbury and Meriden and told tiie friends at home that the battle was ready to be gin. Before the game all dispute as to the protested players by ?deriden was settled, for the principal of li:e Morid' n High school was eonvincil that each member oF the team was a bona tide student and was eligible to play on the team. When this had been settled the friends of each team separated and then began the cheers from this side and that as the boys prepared to do battle. The girls wore there in force and their bright but anxious faces added to ihe beauty of the scene nnd made each team work harder to will the smiles of the female portion of ihe gathering. When the two teams lined up for play it was seen a! once that each member had been trained 1o perfection and t't it would be a banle royal no ono'uoubt- ed. and the result, one. was bitterly Meriden won the while uot a close contested one. toos sin! too'; the north goal E.
