London, June (. Lord Roberts re

manry (Irish wan "overwhelmed hy
the Hoers at Llndley." Lord Metlmeu
made a inagiiitieent march to the

London. June O. The war office lias
received the following from Lord
"I'retorla, June 32. ."." p. 111. Just
before dark yesterday the enemy were
beaten back from nearly all the posi
tions they had been holding, and Ian
Hamilton's mounted infantry followed
them to within 2.o yards of Pretoria,
through which tliey retreated hastily.
I)e Lisle then sent an office with a
flag of truce Into the town, demand
ing its surrender in my name. Shortly
before midnight I was awakened by
two officials of the South African re
public Sa fibers, military secretary to
Commandant General Kotha, and a
general officer of the oHer army who
brought me a letter from Botha, pro
posing an amistice for the purpose of
fettling the terms of surrender.
"I'ntundltional Surrender" Robert.
"I replied that I would gladly meet
the commandant general the next
morning, but that I was not prepared
to discuss any terms, as the surrender
of the town must be unconditional. I
asked for a reply by daybreak, as I
had ordered the troops to inarch on
the town as son as it was light. In
his reply Itotha told me that he had
decided not to defend Pretoria, and
that he trusted that women, children
and property would be protected. At
1 o'eolck a. in. today, while on the line
of march, I was met by three of the
principal officials with a flag of truce,
stating their wish to surrender the
SIrsilames Itotha and Kruger in Town.
"It was arranged that I'retorla
should betaken possession of by her
majesty's troops at 2 o'oclock this aft
ernoon. Mrs. liotha and Mrs. Kruger
are both in Pretoria. Some few of the
British prisoners have lieen taken
away, but the majority are still at
Waterval. Over a hundred of the of
ficers are In Pretoria. The few I have
seen are looking well."

Object to Negro Enumerator,
Omaha, June . Among the census
enumerators here is one colored man
and his troubles are greater than all
others. Some people claim the right

bis feet Inside of the door they imme
diately forget all that they knew about
themselves or point blank refuse to
answer. As a result a special enumer
ator will visit several households and
the heads of some families may find
themselves defendants in the United

Railroad Expects to Hani a Tremendous
Yield of Corn Tbls Fall.
The rustle of the corn blades can be
heard, even in their infancy, through
out the whole west, say the freight
agents of the various railroads of
Omaha, whose duty it is to keep posted
on tho crop outlook, in order that cars
may be provided, months in advance,
for the movement of the yield.
All of them report that there has
never been a brighter outlook at this
time of the year for not alone a big
corn crop, but a small grain yield as
well. The government has "experts"
employed throughout the country to
gather information regarding the crop
outlook, but business men generally
have long since ascertained that no
governmjnt report on crops is as re
liable as information gathered by the
railroad freight agents. It is not a
theory with the latter, but a science,
which his oeen worked out to perfec
tion. Nebraska' will have a wonderful crop
of corn, and a big crop of wheat, oats
and barley, unless a long, hot and dry
spell comes at an inopportune time to
blight it. The same is true of the
com crop, say the railroad men. To
move this vast amount of grain the
railroads have even now begun to get

Would Not Suffer So Again For rifty

I awoke last night with severe pains i n
my stomach. I never felt so badly in
my life. When I came down to work
this morning I felt so weak I could
hardly work. I went to Miller & Mc
Curdy 's drug store and they rec
ommended Chamberlain's Cholic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. It
worked like magic and one dose fixed
me all right. It certainly is the finest
thing I ever used for stomach trouble.
I shall not be without it in my home
hereafter, for I should not care to en
dure the Bufferings of last night again
for fifty times its price. G. H. Wil
