having used the rails and sleepers in

still reach camp that the Free Staters

LONDOX,Jan 16. Evidence accumu
lates that General Methuen's blunder
at Magersfontein has lost him the con
fidence of bis entire force to such an
extent that, it is declared, it is doubt
ful if tho troops would follow him in
another attack on tho Boers.
The war office is understood to be in
possession of p. letter written by Gen
eral Wauchopo the night before the
battle, saying that would be the last
letter ho would ever write, as he had
been asked to perform an impossible
task, and he had either to obey or sur
render his sword.
An immediate change in the com
mand of the force may therefore be ex
pected. It is anticipated In some
quarters that Lieutenant General
Tucker will succeed General Methuen.
The complete absence of news from
Natal proves that the censorship will
allow nothing to pass until General
Buller's plans aro executed or have
failed. Even General Roberts, in his
report of yesterday evening, refrained
from mentioning a word about Natal
or General Buller. From the other
columns there is little news of mo
ment. Modder river advices of yester
day's date only report daily long range
shelling, from which the Boers are
supposed to have suffered severely.
A dispatch from Sterkatroem, dated
Monday, January 15, reports that Gen
eral Gatacre's troops had made a dem
onstration beyond Molteno, in the di
rection of Stormberg, in the belief
that the Boers intended to seize Mol
teno. The burghers were not sighted
and the British remained at Molteno.
Arrivals from Stormberg estimate
that there are 4,500 Boers at that
place, mostly revolted colonists and

nearly twenty telephones are placed.

At Minot, N. D , a strike of serious
pro(ortions is threatened by freight
train operators of the Great Northern
railway. A meeting of trainmen has
been held, and it was decided to go out
unless a modification of the rule lately
introduced compelling freight crews
to do switching at terminal points was
granted. In case the men go out the
entire system will be affected.
A boycott has been declared by the

General baggage agents now are
voting upon the proposition recently
made at a meeting of the executive
officers of roads in the western pas
senger association to cease the check
ing of unlocked articles as baggage.
The general impression is that the
western roads will adopt the proposi
tion. A great many persons would
complain against a rule disqualifying
telescopes and other lockless things
from the list of legitimate baggage.
It is claimed that the roads should
agree not to check unlocked articles
in justice to themselves. If telescopes
were thrown out of the list there
would be fewer claims for the value of
articles presumably lost in transit.
Hereafter truuks weighing over 250
pounds will not be checked as baggage,
but must be Bhlpped by express or

A New Telegraph Line.
The Omaha correspondent in today's
Lincoln Journal has tho following to
6 ay in regard to the extension of the
Postal Telegraph company's lines to
PlaMsmouth and Nebraska City :
"The Postal Telegraph company has
just completed a new line to Platts-
mouth and Nebraska City and within
the next week or two will open offices
in both cities. The location in Ne
braska City has been chosen and the
work of preparing it for occupancy is
going on.
"The new line will terminate, tem
porarily, at Nebraska City, although
it is believed to be the ultimate inten
tion to extend it as far as Kansas City
by way of Atchison, taking in a num
ber of lively little Nebraska and Kan
sas towns on the way. This, when
completed, will make the second line
of this company between KanshS City
and Omaha. A recent purchase of
6,000 miles of copper wire is believed
to be significant of the commence
ment of heavy construction work in
the near future, but the head office
has so fir given no intimation as to
what new field is to be invaded."

morning. Several gentlemen were
down from Omaha yesterday looking
over the steam plant and making cal

the building.
No high school in the state has a
more gentlemanly and ladylike collec

high school, and notwithstanding the
crowded and uncomfortable conditions,
they have, as a whole, done the most
excellent work during the entire term,
and have put up with the conditions
without complaint, although they are
put to considerable inconvenience. It
will be a source of immense relief when
the climbing up and down stairs, to
reach the top floor, and also between
classes, can be avoided, and the pupils
can have a room capable of seating
them all. Then they will not have to
be seated in recitation rooms as at
present, and thus be disturbed every
period by having to give up their seats
to classes reciting.
