Around Ladysmith by Boers This Given a Superior Force to Op pone the Approach of Gen Bai lers Relief Expedition Latest From FrontL London Jan 16Gen Bullers latest authentic word as to what he and his 30000 men are doing was wired from Springfield after his first for ward step Striving to think out the unknown London is confused by sur mise and rumor and disquieted by sus pense Spenser Wilkinson the lucid military expert of the Morning Post asserts that the Boer force in north era Natal is larger than Gen Butlers and Sir George Whites together so that the Boers are able to leave a force around Ladysmith larger than that within the town and yet to oppose Gen Buller with a force superior to his own- Iteports from the Boer camps affirm that the circle of investment has been drawn closer by the occupation of some hills nearer the town thus lib crating reenforcements to oppose Gen Buller The yeomanry recruiters are lis turbed by the fact that they arc able to get only one and onehalf compa applieantsinother applicants fall short of the re quirements One thousand would be regarded as a very small number even were all accepted The provinces are doing better al though to raise 10000 appears far from the easy matter it did a fort night ago- Among the minor perplexities of the Wily office is a strike among the military tailors which causes delay in uniforming the recruits An interesting item of news is that 30 Boers escorting a party of reap ers have successfully garnered all the crops within two miles of the colonial camp at Birds river the 1ritish force being too weak to inter iere London Tan 16The Standard gives prominence to the following dis patch dated Saturday January 13 from Durban- A man who has just arrived here from Springfield says that a British column proceeding to the relief of Ladysmith has crossed the Little Tu irela When he left it was facing the Boer position on the Big Tugela and a Howitzer was shelling the Doer trenchesHe also that 270 wagons laden with commissiriat store for Lady smith had left Frere and it was expected that the column would join hands with Gen White Monday even ing The traction engines have been doing excellent work in hauling heavy wagons out of holes and swamps This they accomplish with the great est easeBritish patrols have discovered parties of Boers in the direction of En nersdale between Frere and Est court London Jan 16The correspondent of the Daily Telegraph at Pieter maritzburg telegraphing Thursday January 11 says The gallantry of the Ladysmith garrison last Saturday appears to have depressed if not actually demoralized the Boers generally It is believed that they lost at least two if not three killed as against our one Many Boers are believed to be trekkingnorthward The magistrate at Nqutu Zululand telegraphs that scouts report having seen many Boer families with wagons proceeding north via Zululand while a European who formerly resided at Dundee declares that after the repulse at Lady smith a number of Boer women load ed with dead and wounded passed through that mining township and that the Doers burned some of the public buildings as they departed Five days have passed since then Boer Headquarters Outside Lady smith Jan JThe Boers occupying the southern edges of nesters Kop were driven out by the British Saturday Commandant Xel on the west of the town and the Pretoria commando on the north have taken the kopje commanding Caesars Camp from which they maintain a continu ous sniping of the British The Pre toria commando lost six men killed and six wounded in attempting to storm the fort Cape Town Jan 15There is good reason to believe that the statement that Sir Charles Warren with 11000 men has gone toward Weenen is cor rect and we may expect important news shortly Reports have been received here that dysentery is very rife in Lady smithLondon Jan 30The correspondent of the Times at Lourenzo Marques telegraphing last Saturday says The Free State has now called out every available man including the leading merchants who told expected to enjoy immunity ANNUAL REPORT Interstate Commerce Commission Slakes n Strong Plea to Congress to Up hold Their Hands Washington Jan 16Thu inter state commerce commission Monday made public its thirteeenth report The feature of the report is the strong plea made that congress up holds the hands of the commission by amendments making the interstate commerce law more effective The report says the commission a year ago called attention to the fact that in vital respects the present law has proved defective and inadequate and that until further legislation is pro vided the best efforts at regulation must be feeble and disappointing The requests of the commission for needful amendments have been sup ported by petitions and memorials from agricultural manufacturing and commercial interests throughout the year yet says the report not a line of the statute has been changed and none of the burdensome conditions which call fir relief has been re moved or moiled The existing situation and the developments of the past year it is added render more imperative than ever before the necessity for speedy and suitable legisla tion Ninetenths of the people know that any railroad company can charge for its service whatever it pleases and as much as it pleases without any real power in this commission or any other tribunal or court to limit the amount of such charge for the future when complaint is made by an ag grieved shipper and they are sub stantially of one mind in desiring that this and other defects in the statute be promptly remedied Shippers generally also have been practically unanimous in favor of a sin gle classification of freights one that will be uniform for all roads and all sections of the country and reason ably stable when established This general public dissatisfaction has been frequently expressed in reso lutions of various national organizations and at a conference in Chicago last November attended by represen tatives from a number of nationalas sociations of manufacturers mer chants and others a bill embracing the more important amendments recommended by the commission was ap proved as the meausre which would best meet the requirements of busi ness and commercial interests This bill Senator Cullom has introduced and the report significantly suggests whether continued failure to perfect the regulating statute on reasonable lines will not soon result in an ir repressible demand for almost radical and drastic legislation Continuing it adds It is a matter of common knowledge that vast schemes of railway control are now in process of consummation and that the competition of rival lines is to be restrained by these combinations While this movement has not yet found full expression in the actual consolidation of railroad corporations enough has transpired to disclose a unification of financial interests which trill dominate the management and harmonize the operations of lines heretofore independent and competi tive This is today the most notice able and important feature of the railway situation If the plans al ready foreshadowed are brought to effective results and others of simi lar scope are carried to execution there will be a vast centralization of railroad properties with all the pow er involved in such farreaching com binations yet uncontrolled by any public authority which can be effectually exerted The restraints of com petition upon excessive and unjust rates will in this way be avoided and whatever evils may result will be rem ediless under existing laws The increase in railroad business the past year has been so great the report says that many carriers found their equipment inadequate for the service required Revenues increased greatly while railway failures fell oil The rush of business contrib uted to the improved observance of published rates and diminished the frequency of those practices which ire made criminal misdemeanors by the statute Reference is made to the several conferences had with high railway of ficials early in the year with a view to gaining from each promises to maintain their published rates and to the good effect of these conferences- in checking the rate demoralization then prevailing It is denied that the conferences sought to secure agreements to maintain rates their only purpose being to secure good faith in observance of published tariffs Germany Friendly Toward Us toIfriendly feeling is developing in Ger many toward the United States which gives promise of resulting in tlv abatement of some of the harsh restrictions upon American trade that hate been the source of bitter complaint ly our exporters Mr Mason attributes this feeling to the succcsa lioutcome of the Philadelphia com nercial exposition upon which he bases an adminicle report to the state Icpirtiaent THE BUBONIC PLAGUE Nine Cases nt Honolulu Making Twenty Two In AIIThe Disease Makes Its Appearance In Brazil Honolulu Jan 8 via San Francisco Jan 16Since the 1st instant nine cases of plague have developed making 22 cases to date The board of health has

Norwegian girl aged 14 years The other 21 cases are divided as follows Chinese 15 Japanese 2 Hawaiians 3 South Sea Islander 1 The following resolution was adopt ed by the board of health It is the sense of this meeting that it is a sound policy to remove to quar antine as rapidly as possible the resi dents of the Chinatown district and to take any and every step without limit necessary to stamp out the plague including the destruction of buildings and other property In accordance with the foregoing Chinatown is being rapidly burned out Within a week a majority of the residents of the plague spot will be removed to new and cleaner quarters on the outskirts of the city Thirty one small buildings are being erected by the government These structures will accommodate about 3000 per sonsOn the 3d inst the board of health declared the entire judicial district of Honolulu under quarantine All persons arc forbidden to leave the district without permission of the board of health All persons outside of the district are forbidden to harbor any person coming from the district with out the permission of the board of health The council of state has appropriated 273000 with which to fight the plague and place the city in i proper sanitary condition Some of the captains of the sailing vessels leaving here for the coast are relaxing from the strictness of the rule of taking no passengers from Honolulu and there is now some chance for people to go away if they are willing to go on sailing vessels The schooner Columbia which leaves here next week is taking pas sengers She goes to Port Townsend The bubonic plague appears 1o be spreading in Japan as shown by ad vices up to December 30 received this morning via steamship China At Tai hoku four fresh cases and one death were reported
