LONDON , Oct. G. Nothing Import
ant has developed In the Transvaal
situation since morning. The Dally
Telegraph's story of this morning an
nouncing that the Doers had Invaded
Natal and seized Lalgnok , now seems
without foundation. The government
has received no such reports , although
a movement on the part of the Boers
would naturally cause little surprise.
The British position In Natal was
considerably strengthened today by
the arrival of Indian transport with
about 600 Infantry , cavalry and artil
lery , all of which will probably bo sent
to the front by train , and with their
arrival at Qlencove and Ladysmlth to
morrow or Saturday the British ad
yanced camps anu lines of communica

The military authorities apparently
no longer fear the massing of the
Boers along the border and In fact It
has been provldea that the Boers shall
not make a sudden rush Into the coun
try. The Natal people are pleased with
this , because they argue the tension
of waiting will tell severely on the
Boers' discipline , and , moreover , will
Boon exhaust what little forage there
is near the border and bo compelled to
fall back on their base , because , In
view of the defective commissariat ,
they are unwilling to advance Into Na

he believed Mr. Chamberlain had

OMAHA , Nob. , Oct. 3. The experi
ment of sprinkling railroad traded
n-lth crude petroleum In order to keep
Sown the dust has not proved an alto
gether glittering success. Thin was
not duo to the fact that the oil would
not lay the dust and kcap It laid eo-
curoly , but because the oil was a con
stant menace to the safety of travel.
Sections of track on tiotnn of the sea
shore lines that tried the experiment
were sot on fire in the most notorious
manner. The management know that
the presence of the oil would account
for the extent of the llres once started ,
but they could not discover the origin
of so many. It was thought that re
vengeful tramps were at the bottom
of It , but finally It was aacortalnod that

do the trick as quickly as would ti
lighted match. Experiment proved
this to bo true , and the oil plan is being -
