LONDON , Nov. Ifi. A dispatch to the
Dally Mall from Mafoklng , sent by way of
Magalapye , because the runners sent south
ward were unable to traverse the Doer lines ,
gives an Interesting account of the firing In
the last week of October. The message saya :
"After the failure to reach the town Gen
eral Cronjo had recourse to the tactics em
ployed during the sclgo of Potchofstroom In
1S81 , making an advance to the town by a
succession of trenches in Echelon. Such a
move had been nntlMpated by us for some
time and for that reason there had been ecnt
out parties to worry the Doers Incessantly
by night attacks.
"Thcso tactics the enemy disliked , but ho
contented himself with n dally shell fire
which exposed him to little personal risk.
Then Colonel Daden-Powell played his trump
card by sending out Fltz-Clarence's party
to worry the occupants of the trenches. The
little force stole out silently In the dark
ness. No shot was fired and the men with
fixed bayonets , creeping rather than walking
along , gradually approached the chief Doer
position. Then na they closed In thcro was
a shrill screech. H was Fltz-Clarence'fl
whistle and the signal for an onslaught.
Ilnjonct Sleeping Ilocm.
"A ringing British cheer , which the listen
ers back In camp caught up , was the only
reply as the party dashed Into the trenches.
There was a fearful struggle , the attacking
forces catching and bayoneting the Doers
under the tarpaulins where they crouched
crying for mercy. At least fifty bayonets
got to work and tbe havoc they wrought was
terrible.
"For just a moment there was no sys
tematic return fire , but then a perfect hall-
storm of bullets poured In from the trenches
to the rear. When again Fitz-Clarcnce's
whistle sounded , it meant , 'Scatter and
homeward. ' The Drltlsh force scattered
silently , creeping back under the furious
flro In the darkness to the appointed
rendezvous , where the roll was called.
"Colonel Daden-Powcll met and congratulated
*
ulated Captain Fltz-Clarcnce and his men on
their splendid work , saying that It was a
heavy price to pay , but that the Doers had to
be stopped making rifle trenches within
range of the town. The members of the
party nro the envy and pride of the forces.
Even the Doer commander expresses ad
miration of the action and added he would
take Mafeklng before long , for he meant to
do ono thing or the other. "
"Sunday parsed quietly , the v6lunfoe'r
band in ' ! " ' '
playing the women's"lJiaRef. 'All
Sunday night the Boers poured a rjfjq re ,
'
Into the to'wn. It was set 'going after din
ner Sunday evening , when Colonel Dadon-
.Powell hoisted ared lamp on the i commonage
menage , which was the scene of. tCapfaln '
Fltz-Clarcnco's midnight attack , Thp ruse '
answered splendidly. The moment the light
appeared the Doers opened flro and their
fusillade latcd the whole night through.
"There has been a tremendous waste at
ammunition , indeed It is estimated that 30-
000 rounds of ball cartridges were wasted
on the occasion of the night attack on the a !
Deer trenches. Double rations have been | 1
served out to the men who are under shcl- '
ter , EO as to be on the safe side , if the
Doers should sweep the town by a long j1
range rifle fire. The garrison Is banging on
finely.
"Colonel Daden-Powell has the greatest
confidence in everybody , especially In the
matter of Implicit obedience to the order to
hold the fire until the Doers get to close
range.
"Tho shelling continued nil day Sunday
at Intervals. About 4 o'clock in the after
noon General Cronjo sent In a flag of truce ,
giving Mafeklng the last chance to sur
render. While the flag was reelvlng pt-
tentlon the heavy bombardment continued. "
DcNcrllitlnit of Cronje'n Attack.
The dispatch then describes Croqje's at
tack of Monday , the details of which have
"been " cabled to Colonel Daden-Powell.
"Tho end came , " says the correspondent ,
"after five hours' fighting. The enemy re
tired , being heavily beaten for nil tliiio , EO
far as Mafeklng Is concerned. It was the
hottest day of the siege and the firing was
terrific , the Doers evidently recognizing } hat
the way Into Mafeklng , If any. Is by n kopje , '
which was gallantly defended by Colonel !
Wnlford's mm. The garrison Is jubilant ,
whllo I IIP Doerh have been hurled hack In !
dleordor on their laager and will lnyo ) to
content themselves with a long range bom
bardment until they are strongly rein
forced. '
"Tho enemy lost heavily. For hours after
lie firing line bad been burled back two
wagons went slowly along their pasltlon ,
picking up the dead and wounded , The
kopje resembled a shambles after the light.
All tbq men were killed by bullets or shells.
The lookout toner was ehot to pieces , whllo
oven the saddles of tbo horses wore fear
fully battered about. The whole place was
simply smashed up by the concentrated
fire of seven guns and a thousand rifles ,
"The Doers at first held on to their ad
vance plucklly , but they could not live
when they came to short range , the men
being shot down nt 300 yards. The enemy
Is expected to draw off early In order to de
fend Pretoria. Thcro la still no news from
the Eoutli. As I send this message 000 Doers
have gone south with wagons and have
commenced shelling. "

Five other troopships are now cnroute from

Tbo total reinforcements that have arrived
In South Africa since Friday are 10,000 men ,
chiefly Infantry ; nearly 13,000 borers and
mules , three batteries cf Held artillery and
a number of quick-firing Maxim guns. The
fact that the Drltannlc proceeded for East
London Is taken to mean that General Duller
Is satisfied that the troops which have al

for the relief of Ladysmlth ,

LONDON , Nov. 15. If the news contained
In the Pretorla dlnpatch , of Thursday , No
vember 9 , by way of Capetown , Friday ,
November 10 , Is correct , and thor.e is every
reason to believe It la accurate , ns the Doer
dispatches have almost Invariably hitherto
rendered fairly accurate accounts , It Is as
serted here that It Implies a general assault
on Ladysmlth was pending when General
Joubcrt's report was sent off. Attention Is
called to the fact . .that the date , November
9 , Is assumed to'bo the t date of General
White's late pigeon-post message announc
ing a Renewal of. the- bombardment , since
which nothing has been received , except
'
rumors frcm Estcpurt , that the bombard
ment was suspended November 10 ,
It Is asserted that If the Doers got their
forces within l.BQO yards of the Drltleh posi
tion It shows they fully realized the neces
sity of utilizing the brief Jnterval before the
arrival of the Drltlsh reinforcements to make
a determined attempt to storm General
AVhlte's position.
To euccc6ully ( adyAncq so close to Lady-
smith , It is " pointed out , the
Doers musf hayo ; , been most active
In Intrenching and the nearness , of
the beslegjng. lines , 1 } . is added , Indicates
their mujlncsa fr tho. Assault , which there
has been a disposition in military circles to
believe thq peers wcro ; not willing to under
take. It musthowever " * , have been patent
to General Joubert that Ladysmlth would
not fall to Iho fire of his artillery , and ,
therefore , ho had no choice but to assault the
place or retire to" the passes of the Drakons-
burg In the hope of Involving the pursuing
Drltlsh In the .Intricate fastnesses of the
mountains. The- cessation of the cannonade
mentioned In the' dispatch and the opening
of musketry flro Implies , It Is said , that the
Doers were obliged to" stop their artillery
for fear of hitting their own men , and that
nothing further has bbcn heard from this
movement la regarded "here as an Indication
cither that , the thrcalened assault was post
poned or that the result was Indecisive ,
otherwise , it Is said , something further
would have leaked , out before now.
IMxcrcdlt KrcncH Slorlen.
A Paris paper today gleefully announces
the fall and capture of Ladysmlth , but re
ports from this sotlrce no longer cause a
ripple of excitement- Nevertheless there
will bo conslderable nnxlety here until the
war ofllco or some Independent version of the
latest developments at Ladysmlth Is known.
A private message from Mafcklng reports
that all was wellUhere' Monday , November 6.
The details of 'the' fighting nt Mnfeklng re
ceived by way"of Capetown and Magalapye
relate to the engagement of October 25 , al
ready reported. The story , however , Is pleas.
ant reading to the British , ns It shows the
garrison was cheerful , well provisioned and
confident.
The possible revolt of the Dasuto
chief , Jocl/'who , It has been announced , may
Join the Doers , Is attributed to tribal Jeal
ousy. There has been a long feud between
the half-brothers , Jonathan and Joel , the
latter refusing tqi recognize his brother's
nomination as chief. Joel therefore took an
anti-British , side U ajnst Jonathan In 1880
and committed mosl hideous atrocities. If
he Joins the Doers ft Is prophesied Chiefs
Lerothodl , Jonathan 'and others are liable
! o make short'Worfc"'of 'the recalcitrants.

Wo have been bombarded pretty heavily all
week. Friday night Captain Fltz-Clarenco
and Lieutenant Swlnburn with D squadron
of the Protectorate regiment made a
magnificent bayon'et charge upon the Doers'
entrenchment , driving them from their posi
tions end bayonettlng numbers of the Doers ,
who must have lost very heavily. The
charge was most , gallant and determined ,
The party could not hold the trenches and
lost six men killed , two prisoners and nlno
wounded In their retirement. We expect a
general attack tomorrow. The bombardment
has been most Ineffectual. Everyone re
mains under shell-proof cover. So far the
shells have only wounded ono man.
The enemy are using one ninety-four-pound
howitzer and seven other guns from seven to
fourteen-pounders. The town Is most cheer
ful and determined to resist attack to the
utmcet. The Doers are entrenched on every
side In great nunibere and are pushing
gradually closer and closer to the town
fortifications. We are well off for provlslons
and water , though very tired dodging shells'
and fighting. "Quito on civilized lines , Gen
eral Cronjo has always Riven duo notice of
n bombardment , and allowed an ambulance
party two hours on Saturday to re
cover the bodies , of six dead left In the
vicinity of the Doer trenches.
On Friday night Jan Dotha , the well
known Doer commandant , told a man with
the ambulance party that their lofia had
I been heavy and that his heart was very soro.

A letter In the Times written by an offl-
cer on board the transport Nubia asserts
"that 1.600 rations of Bait carrion labeled

"They only salt down S * ° very worst portions

which epeaks for Itself of the lawless state
of the country bordering on and beyond the

quite recently. A gang of scoundrels kid
naped a lad of 7 years , with a view to hold
Ing him for ransom. A message was sen
to tbo father demanding of him n ransom
somewhat beyond his means , and consequently
quently the father could not pay It. The
fiends , believing that he was able to raise
the money if ho wished , again sent to htm
threatening that If the money was not sen
out within a specified time the boy would
be returned to him In pickle , and , the money
not being sent , actually put their threat
Into effect , the dead body of the lad being
i returned to the father in a jar of brine
The perpetrators of this horrible outrage
nro still at largo and apparently the Chinese
authorities are making no effort to nrrce
them.

CHICAGO , Nov. 15. The federal authori
ties today took cognizance of the reports
which had been made concerning the alleged
fraudulent business of the Hoard of Trade
firm of McLaln Dros. & Co. and arrested
Charles K , and Albert L. McLiln of the
firm. The charge was using the United
States malls an n scheme to defraud. The
prisoners were taken bcforo United States
Commissioner Humphrey , where they waived
examination on the charge and were held to
the federal grand jury In bonds of $5,000.
The ball was what Is known ns n joint and
several bond , the whole of which will bo
forfeited , If cither or both of the defendants
fall to appear in court when called upon.
The two Doard of Trade men are said to
have run their operations with customers
In various parts of the country two years
ago and It Is claimed they realized (500,000
through their "bucket shopping" scheme.
They will not appear In court again until
next spring and not then unless the federal
grand jury finds true bills on the charges.
The firm of McLaln Dros. & Co. has
stopped all operations on the market , hav
ing transferred its trade. The case which
will be presented before the next grand jury
Is said to show most flagrant violations of
the Doard of Trade rules , as well as offenses
against the postal laws. The firm's busi
ness consisted principally of deals for coun
try customers. The members of the firm
are eatd to have "matched" buying or sellIng -
Ing orders from customers with the reverse
trade on Us own account and the work Is
said to have been carried on so quietly that
many customers lost money on the fictitious
sales.
The evidence In the case Is In the custody
of the postplllcc inspectors and Is made up
of a bundle of several hundred letters writ
ten by the defendants to their customers.
Some of thcso customers were : F. A.
'Hykc ' , Luverne , Minn. , H. M. Lloyd , Sterl-
, lng , Knn.j J. J. Stevens , Dalton , Kan. ; Hun
ter Milling company , Wellington , Kan. ; A.
C. Mains , Philadelphia , 111.
The warrant for the arrest of the McLaln
brothers was based on the alleged swindle
of L. A. Hyko of Luverne , Minn. , who seems
to have lost about $20,000 In his dealings
with the firm. The Doard of Trade rules pro
vide that when sales or purchases are made
for n customer the firm must furrtlsh _ the
former with memoranda , giving the natno of
the firm from which the purchases were
made or to which the commodity was soli ) ,
as well ns the prices at which the deals were
made. The evidence consists of letters and |
memoranda of transactions made with cus
tomers and shows that while an effort wnfi
made to keep within the letter of tbe Donrd
of Trade rules , a conspiracy existed among
certain local firms to violate them. It Is
eald thcso deals , which were made by the
McLaln brothers for customers In the west ,
were "bucket shopped" and never reached
the grain pit.

YOKOHAMA , Oct. 3. , Via Victoria , D. C. ,
Nov. . ID.-rThe last , regiment ot returning
volunteers , thp-Tenneasceane , passed through
here last wcek and the most extraordinary
record made by any army Is now complete
and unbroken. Twelve thousand troops hnvo
occupied the city for an average ot two days
and nights without the slightest disturbance
ot any kind.
The general Impression that a close under
standing now exists bctwcn China and Japan
has Its latest confirmation In the fact that
Kang Yu Wei , leader of the Chinese reform
party , who , at the time of the coup d'etat ,
fled from the wrath of the empress dowager ,
Is now , on his return from America , re
fused an asylum here. Arriving on October
23 by the Empress , he was not permitted
to land. When the steamer reached Kobe ,
however. It appearing that If he was obliged
to stay on board he would have to proceed
to Shanghai , where complications were to b *
feared , he was allowed under police escort
to go by rail to a port on tbe Inland sen ,
where be could take passage direct to Hong
Kong. Today his arrival nt the latter place
Is reported. The opposition papers make
much of the Incident , to the discredit of the
Japanese government.
Comment on the Mosampo affair con
tinues to be InccEsant. Report has It that
Russia has secured thcro a tract of 170
acres , although not tbo coveted location
which the Japanese were so fortunate as to
pre-empt. Thn latter was also credited with
an arrangement In conjunction with the
Corean government to build a dry dock there.
On the 17th and 18th ultimo , In a terrific
gale off the coast of Hokkaido , out of n fleet
of thirteen schooners , which had set oul
together to cross tbe China sea , ten wcnl

souls.
On the continent Russia Is now showing
Its hand without reserve. Llao Tung pcnln-
sula , which Japan was forced to tedo back
o China , IB now Russian territory. Its gov
ernment Is administered by the commandant
ot tbe nufolnn naval and military forces
under order of the minister of the treasury
at St. Petersburg. Port Arthur Is the scat
of the government. A Russian diplomatic
agent and a financial commissioner nro np
pointed and judicial procedure of the reign
of Alexander II Is enforced throughout the
whole territory.
