England Considers Roberts's Assertion ', Premature. ; LONDON, B?( ' 17. Lord S.-.lisburj (lud his colleagues must today feel great; ly relieved that purliameut was prorogued Saturday. A grim irony riow attaches tu Lord Roberts' description of the "war as "over." -4'esterday the war office for the first time in many mouths remained open throughout a Suuday in response to the demand of public anxiety to learn the latest news. - ...... Lord Kitchener is reported to have sent a fresh and urgent request to the govern ment to send out every available moult ed man. With General -De Wet again escaping through the British cordon in the neighborhood of Thabahchu, the seri ous affairs at Vryheid and Zastrou and the Magaliesburg disaster confronting the British people, they may well begin to ask, as they do, why Lord Roberts is nllowed to come home. The colonial office announces its deci sion to enlist 5,000 men instead of the 1,000 previously asked to be recruited in Great Britain for General Baden Powell's constabulary, which shows that recruiting in South Africa is less active than had been anticipated. Dispatches from Lourenco Marques assert that all the Boer forces are plenti fully supplied with ammunition, but ter ribly in want of food and clothing. Mr. Kruger, at The Hague, received Mr. William T. Stead yesterday. . Mr. litead urged him to continue his tour of Europe and to go to America. The Boer statesman listened attentively, but de clined to commit himself by any definite statement. It is reported that he is about to remove from his hotel to a pri vate residvnee, as though contemplating a prolonged stay at The Hague. , Lord Roberts, now returning to Eng land on board the Canada, did not go ashore at St. Helena, though the steamer touched there. Ninety troopers, members of the Sev enteenth laneers, stationed at Ballincol lig, were arrested yesterday for insub ordination. They were about to start for South Africa and were annoyed at not being allowed license to carouse. Wiring yesterday, Lord Kitchener, after announcing that the released Magalies berg prisoners have arrived at Rusten berg, says that the Boer force divided into two portions, one moving south and the other west. The following dispatch, dated Pre toria, Dec. 15, has been received by the war office from Lord Kitchener: "Five officers and 31G men. Magalies bcrg prisoners, have been released. "The Boers surrounded and captured 120' of Brabant's horse in a defile in the Zastron district. "Colonel Blomfield, moving on Vry heid, defeated the Boers with heavy loss, driving them from Scheeper's nek and capturing a quantity of arms. The Scheeper's nek movement occurred Dec. 13. "The Boers who attacked Vryheid Dec. 10 lost 100. killed and wounded before they retired. The fighting lasted all day, the enemy drawing off at 7:30 p. ni. The British loss was 0 killed. 19 wounded and 30 missing. Our casualties included two officers who died of their wounds." The following particulars of the disas ter to Clements' force have been re ceived : Clements brought in his force to Com mando nek unopposed. The casualties were heavy. Killed, 5 officers and 9 of other ranks; missing, 18 officers and 555 of other ranks. These latter were four companies of the Northumberland fusi liers, who were stationed on the hill, and some yeomanry and other details sent up to support them. Names and nature of wounds are being telegraphed from Cape Town. BroadwOod's brigade took no part in the engagement. The Boors suffered se verely. Knox drove De Wet north to the Tha-banchu-Ladybrand line, which was held by the British troops. De Wet's force, about 3,000 strong, made several at tempts to get through during the day, assisted by n force of Boers operating from the north. These attacks were re pulsed, though some of the Boers from the south were able to get through the line. While passing the lines in the neigh borhood of Thabarx-hu De Wet's force lost considerably. The South Afriear Light horse and Thornycroft's Mounted infantry captured a 15 pounder, taken at Dewetsuorp; a pompon, several wagons with ammunition, 22 prisoners and som horses and mules. A portion of the ene my has not been able to pass north. The secretary of state for war, Mr William St. John Brodrick, has appoint ed a committee to deal with the questiot of war office reform. The committet will consider the system of contracts ani: the possibility of further decentralization and more expeditious working. Tht chairman of the committee is Mr. Clin ton Ei!v.-rd Dawkias of the firm of J. S Morgan it Co. FIGHTING IN PANAY. Americans Moving Westward Northward. and MANILA, Dec. 17. Advices from Iloilo. island of Panay, report that the American troops have been moving north ward and westward for several days and that detachments of the Sixth, Eight eenth and Twenty-sixth regiments hava been active near their stations. The in surgent losses during the last ten days there have been five killed, several wouuded and 40 taken prisoners. The Americans have lost two killed and three wouuded. Large numbers of the na tives, however, are sweating allegiance to tbe Vnited States,'- ' In various recentnttacks and expedi tions in southern Sbzon the insurgents have lost eight killed, seven' wounded, and about 1!0 captured. vThe Americans have lost one killed and two wounded. Get jral AVheaton reports that 430 na tives have entered Calauan for registration.- .- Most of the time cf the Philippine com mission is now devoted to the tariff bill. Judge Taft said that, generally speak ing, the new rates would be about 40 per cent of the existing rates. ., "It will, be essentially a tariff for reve nue," lie remarked, "but some industries that ore already established will be given protection. The commission is not con sidering the question of the constitution ality of taxing United States products. The precedents have been established in the case of Porto Rico and by the mili tary government of the Philippines. '"The bill requires the washing of cot ton goods, so as to eliminate the clay used by European manufacturers, which in creases the weight. This will incidental ly favor American goods. The rate on kerosene will be reduced from 11 cents a gallon to 4. Some American goods will be admitted free, and almost all will come in at reduced figures." , Fur "a etv Country. LONDON, Dec. 17. There is on Inter esting scheme on foot to establish a gov ernment over a region of 100,000 square miles in the heart of South America to be christened Amazonia and to, be placed under French protection. The' matter ia really a serious one, and as it directly in volves the Monroe doctrine it deserves the attention' of the AA'asbington author sBEOOZIYH B3UETS , ,-r-There will .be a regular "'monthly meeting or the St Thomas Cadets la.':-" the Lyceum building rto-night at 7:3o. Announcement w"as made for the first time at 10:45 mass at St Pat lick's church yesterday of the forth coming marriage of Daniel AV. Lynch, of North Riverside street, a popular foreman at the AA'aterbury Button company and a member of the St Thomas Cadets, and Miss Margaret" Hodges of East Liberty street. A large number attended the Third Congregational church last even ing, where special services were held in honor of the Masonic lodges of the city who had been Invited to attend ' by the Rev Mr Grnager, pastor of the '. church. Mr Granger delivered an ex cellent address on brotherhood, taking as an example the Masonic order and speaking on the text 133rd Psalm, vi: Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! Mr Granger described the natural inclination of man to join In unison with each other for mutual benefits and bow the inhabitants of all nations of the earth are joined in a common brotherhood through the' order of Masons, thus carrying out the doctrine of Christ, "Love one an other." The sermon was a very Inter esting one and made a great impres sion upon those present. Preparations for the annual fair of St Patrick's church are progressing very ravoraoiy. A meeting of the gen eral committee was held yesterday af ternoon and favorable reports were received from the various sub-committees. Following the Custom of last year, light suppers will be served each evening- from 5 to 8 o'clock. The price will be 15 cents, and the repast will be well worth it. At pretty little booths, handsomely decorated, fancy and useful articles will be sold, and all kinds of uice candies will be for sale. Lallier's orchestra will furnish music for dancing wmle Michael Keat ing will make his first appearance as prompter. If reports can be believed, he is among the best.

The performances, which will be given by these two groups of minstrels, will be O. K. and will contain all the latest hits in singing and dancing. THE Y. M. C. A. MEETING. Mr Honeyman Gave a Description of His Work on the Bowery. If one was in attendance at Jacques' Opera house yesterday afternoon, and noticed the interest and enthusiasm which prevailed among the large num ber present, one would indeed say that this movement of Secretary Ross, of the local Y. M. C. A., of holding open, meetings for men only on Sunday afternoons bad, indeed, struck a pop ular note. Mr Honeyman, who was the speaker of the day, was introduced to the audience in a few fitting and well chosen words by the presiding of ficer,, A. M. Benedict. Mr Honeyman, who is an active worker of the Bow ery branch of the Y". M, C. A., enlight ened his hearers with a short descrip tion of his work in that far-famed dis trict of New York city known as the Bowery; how boys are oftentimes res cued from degrading lives by kind ad vice and treatment at the Y". M. C. A. branch, and what evil influences the innumerable saloons, cheap -pawnshops and second band stores have on the youths who have been enticed away from dear homes in other cities by exaggerated ideas concerning the city of Nw York. Mr Honeyman spoke fluently and interesting and his remarks were very pleasing to his hearers. The singing of Miss Agues Mackenzie of New York was heartily applauded. She possesses a sweet voice. Especially pleasing were the choruses of the liymus, which the entire congregation joined in singing. As a whole, it was one of the most interesting Sunday meetings yet held, and Secretary Ross was exceedingly pleased. After the- services of the day were completed. Mr Ross announced thai AVilliam Blarkie, an attorney and counsellor at law in New York city. had been secured to deliver a confi dential talk at Jacques Opera house next SnndTy afternoon, taking for bis suWect. "Secret Sins of Young Men." Mr Blarkie is an interestine writer, as well as on entertaining speaker. He is autbor o.f "How to get strong and how to sfnv so."' Isaac B. Clark, the well known sine-pr. will entertain the audience with several solos. TROLLEY TO WATERBERY. Lighting and Power People Will Build From Bristol to Waterbury. The New Britain Herald says that officials of the Connecticut Lighting and Tower Co are preparing their pe tition to the next session of the gen eral assembly for the extension of their Hue from AA'aterbiiry to Bristol, thus making a through system of trol ley from the Brass city to Hartford. The line has been surveyed and the company has estimated the cost of its construction. The company antici pates that the building of the road will be opposed by the Consolidated railroad, which has already threatened to extend its third rail system between Bristol and Waterbury. . General Man ager Sewall and George E. Terry of AVaterbury were in New Britain Sat- . nrday as the guests of Mr Terry's son, who is the local manager of the Con necticut Lighting and Power Co. They made a trip in a special car over the several local and suburban trolley lines, taking especial note of the condition- of track and turnouts. Every thing was found in good condition. Later they came to this city. - CHURCH TO GREET CENTURY. Every Archbishop and Bishop Expect ed to Pontificate at Midnight Service. Washington, D. C Dee 17. It is learned at the Papal legation that, co incident with the close of the nine teenth century, every archbishop and bishop in the United States, as well as elsewhere, is expected by Pope Leo to pontificate publicly at a midnight ser vice in his cathedral, provided there are no impediments to interfere with the program.. - As some of the American sees have two prelates laboring in conjunction, it Is expected that while the i arch bishop of the diocese officiates at his cathedral In person on this solemn oc casion the coadjutor prelate or assist ant will conduct a similar serrice in the church rhlch he governs as pastor.
