Out of Colesberg1 and Occupied the Place l The Boers Were Utterly Surprised and Finding That Their Retreat Was Threatened Fled in r Disorder Northward London Jan 2The success of Gen French in driving the Boers from Colesburg has shot a welcome ray of light through the gloom of the cam naiffu in South Africa Everywhere it is commented upon as an example of sound tactics and as an illustration of what may be done when the right methods are employed with the Boers The government is urged to take the lesson to heart and to see that no stone is left unturned in the endeavor to get the largest possible forces of cavalry and mounted infantry to the r frontNow that Gen French has the Boers on the run the hope is expressed that he will give them no rest but will harrass them until they have found their way across the Orange river which is 12 miles distant The old wagon route to the Frea State tray erses Colesburg and crosses the river by a fine bridge 1300 feet isbbelieved that the Boers retreated to wad Norvalspont further east and the question is whether Gen French will he able to secure these two bridges before the Doers destroy them One important effect of the success of Gen French is that it will proba bly have a deterrent influence upon 3uich disaffection There is some disposition here to exaggerate the importance of small skirmishes and engagements It should be borne in mind that Gen French has only 2000 men and so far as the important v points of the campaign are concerned the situation is virtually unchanged- At Modder river the Boers appear to be modifying somewhat their line cf defense Gen Bullers scouts have discovered a Boer camp established in thee vicinity of Springfieldsouth l wesfof Colenso by a Free State commando A similar movement has been made at kidder river A large r of Boers it is reported has f 1onmela new laager about 15 miles dcmntlie stream at Kameethoek The Daily Mail has the following i dispatch dated January 1 from Pens Jurg Yesterday afternoon a big force of cavalry and infantry with 10 guns under the personal command ot Gen French moving by detour occupied some hills threfe miles from Coles 1 burtfwhere the Boers were in lrstrength confident in the natural aid J v afforded them by the hills around The enemys position extended six miles around the entire village At daybreak our artillery opened the battle The Boers were taken by sur prise but replied vigorously An ar twoJhours Then a Bter Hotchkiss col lapsed and was abandoned We cap tured it A Boer big gun was si lenced but this and the other Doer guns were withdrawn to the north ward whither we are harassing the T oer retreat by a damaging shell fire Colesberg is in our hands and a he few remaining loyalists are jubilant andra considerable quantity of stores Our losses are quite slight but the Boers must have suffered heavily They may stop at Aehtertang or cross the river altogether at Norvals point where the bridge is still intact llensburg Cape Colony Jan 2 Gen French has completely defeated the Boers and occupied Colesburg theBoersclosely Saturday and Sunday giving them no time to make a prolonged stand and when day broke he was Within striking distance of the armY Sun ay night all the cavalry artil lerjvand infantry the latter riding in C wagons to increase the general mobil ity started upon a night march with the object of turning the goers right V1 The flank operations were successful The infantry and field batteries im mediately made a feint attack upon the Boers front and while this was proceeding the cavalry and light artillery got completely around the en = emys right flank as arranged Time programme was worked without a hitch Time Boers were utterly sur prised and finding their retreat i threatened fled in disorder to the northward leaving Colesburg in Gen k Frenchs hands i Beef Famine Threatened Tacoma Wash Jan 2A beef famine threatens the Klondike Let ters from Dawson state that by the end of December there would not be a pound of fresh meat left Beef wasv retailing at a dollar a pound early in December with little to be had The situation is more serious from the fact that herds of moose and cariboo have been very scarce with the siettle mcnt of the Yukon and even the In V dians find it difficult to secure them ic selves fresh meats Beef shipped over v F ice can riot reach Dawsan before Mart JJl H DISPUTE SETTLED Controversy Over Extension of Con cessions in China Between England France and Uncle Sam Washington Jan 1Tlm announce meat that the extension of the for eign concessions at Shanghai China has been finally approved briLgs to a close a diplomatic controversy be tween Great Britain the United States and France which has at times be come rather acute France taking the position at one stage of the negotia tions that the American cooperation with the British in opposing the French plan of extension was an nit friendly act toward F mce This and other differences have been happily adjusted according to announcement from China which are borne out bl the information of oiiicais here The controversy assumed an international scope when the three colo nies at Shanghai British French and Americansought to extend their limits The concessions are just out side of the old native city and along the river Whang Poo near the point where it joins the YangTseKiang They are chiefly important because Shanghai is the foremost port of entry for foreign trade ih the Chinese empire The French settlement is nearest the city and fronts on the river Next comes the British settle ment and then the American The French desire was to erect their set tlement so as to take in a large area back of the old city including five American missionary institutions The British government opposed this extension quite vigorously The British plan of extension was for an international settlement running from the rear of the British concession up to the native city Prance in turn protested against this on the ground that she would be entirely surrounled without exit ex cept by the river the native city or over British territory The United States approved the plan of an inter ternational settlement as the Ameri can interests were substantially sim ilar to those of the British but the American attitude did not include an indorsement of all the contentions made by the British It was to this course of the American government that France took exception on the ground that it was unfriendly act to France The whileaassuming no outward show of warmth were carried on with some briskness Ambassador Cambon of France presenting the French side up to a few months ago The adjustment finally reached is satisfactory to all parties concerned The French concession is extended without including the American mis sions The British and American set tlements are extended and to some extent merged in the international settlement but the BritishAmerican set tlement does not so envelop time French coloy as to place it in a pocketThe value of these several conces sions is considerable as the popula tion of Shanghai is about 600000 of which the greater part is in the for foreignershavecontrol the property and also have their own courts police and an or ganized military establishment THE HOLIDAY CHIMES Thoniiands Gathered in the Vicinity- of Trinity and Other Churches

being organized under the supervision of a few loyal Irish wo men and surgeons who were in the lied Cross work in Cuba They are also preparing a large number of first aid packages for the invading

in northern New England and places arc being located where the road could be aptured by a very small force LEO NAMES HIS SUCCESSOR Vlic Pontiff Favors Girolnmo Maria Gotti the Famous Geno ese Monk

evening fire that this is to be our last evening topgether in these woods for at least a Tomorrowour vacation in the Iuskolm lake district ends and by tomorrow evening if nothing unlooked for happens we will have nailed up the door of the clubhouse reeled in our lines for the last time this year stored our boats and the night train on the Grand Trunk will be carrying us swiftly back to the states and to our various vocations Without going into particuars or men tioning names it has seemed to me that this would be an excellent time to confess our prevarications so that we may quit this beautiful spot with a clear conscience 1 would suggestHdo you asked the Pastor To put it in plain English said Smith think we have all lied more or less and that now would be a good time to tell theltruth presume that you realize that there are exceptions to that statement ofaU Brother Smith said the Pastor Now I I made no exceptions and intended none said Smith As for myself1 am hereto state now that have lied lied as big as I knew how and still make it a lie that might believed and guess you fellows swallowed it without much question 1 have not believed a single thing joti have said about fish since you have been here said the Pastor Nor 1echoed the otherstThe biggest lie have been here was that one about the number of bass Yorker and 1 caught in Healey lake We were trying to outdo the Pastor and did so far as the lie was con cerned and if he did not believe our story it was because his own was not true What we I shall have to refer this matter to the congregation when we reach home Brother Smith1lmt in the Pastor J would advise you not to replied Smith but as was going to say what we did catch that day was all in the boat when we returned and as several members of this club counted them it will not be dis puted when say there were 138 bass of over the legal length It was only T28 for counted them to ether with Husky Hills id Tice What is the matter of ten bass more or less anyway replied Smith But there gentlemen in my confession 138 bass in tIll of the live or six hundred that I told about and I believe that every one will feel better if they follow my example I believe that the advice Smith gives us is good said Yorker and 1 realize now as never did before the enormity of the lie I told in reference to the muskellunge I caught in Crane lake You dont need to make any confession ot that said the Pastor for everybody knew that it was a lie when you tod it It seems to me that I remember distinct ly of your going to Crane lake to fish for uiujkclluuge on the strength of that story replied Yorker and it was not as bad as your Crown island bass story at that My veracity is not in question at the present time replied the Pastor No we will hear from you later said Yorker provided of course your con science is not too clastic But to return tom Crane lake story simply wish to say that did catch a muskellunge and that it did upset our boat but that was duo to our awkwardness rather than the size of the fish for when we got it on shore which we finally did it only weighed 42 pounds You told me the truth of that Cran2 lake story the day we were at Mealy lake together said Smith and yousaid it ouly weighed 37 pounds What is a matter cf five pounds more or less in the size of a musUclIunge said York ere and Bill fteeves nudged Husky Biil when Smith did not reply have told so many different tales re garding the size and weight of fish that have caught in these Ontario lakes and rivers said Tiec that hardly know where to begin my confession Vhy not straighten out the Moon river story Or 38 muskellunge 79 bass and 120 trout in ten hours asked Husky Bill That might be a good place to begin at as that story was exrggcratod somewhat The truth that J only caught 35 muskellunge bass and no trout at all for I didnot fish for them There are any num ber of trout in that stream and its tribu taries however and I do not doubt Clint it would be quite possible for a manto catch as many fish as I said I had caught in the Moon river in the length of time claimed to have fished In reality I only fishednine hours and threequarters As for the other stories J have toldaboit fishing in Kali pee Kog and the surrounding lakes I can cover all of them with the single statement that I never caught more than 110 bass in any one day in any of these lakes but that I imagine is better than any of the rest of you ever did if the whole truth was knownGentlemen began the Pastor when Brother Smith started this little experience meeting did not realize the good that it was Jo accomplish In fact I was afraid it would result in more harm than goodand that the prevarications J cannot bring my self to the point of calling them liesthat havebeen told by several of you around these evening tires would only be again exag gerated and that some of you at least would return to your homes with an added weight upon your conscience It has pleased me greatly to listen to such confessions as have been made this evening and Iam sure that you feel the better for having made them There is one thing for which I am sorry and that is that Brother Barnes is not here to retract the story he toldoh catching more fish thrum 1 caught at Crown is land several years ago I am sure that had Brother Barnes been with us tonight he would have been moved to tell the real truth of that story and so remove a load from his conscience What are you going to do about that story of yours that start d the trouble asked Tice 1 wish to say in regard to anything that I may have told sinoe I have been here that io now deny the story and offer a socalled confession would bo but a farce and a lie n itself When told of those 590 bass my elf dayYouPossibly I did but 590 was the correct myformerJ guess those bonds you put up guar n teeing the Pastors reputation will be de elated forfeited when you get home said Husk Bill to
