The secretary of war has received the

Belmont, November 23:
"Attacked at daybreak this morning.
He was in a strong position. Three
ridges were carried in succession, the
last attack being prepared by shrap
nel. Infantry behaved splendidly and
received support from the navy brig

and skill. Had I attacked later I
should have had far heavier loss.
Our victory was complete. Have ta

ANXIOUS, THOUGH VICTORIOUS
London. (Special.) Before anxiety
i to the situation In Natal had been
relieved, there comes news of a great
battle at Belmont. This has happened
sooner than was expected. Only the
official account Is yet to hand, but so
far as can be gathered, the fighting ap
pears to have been almost a repetition
of the battle or Elandslaagte.
A dispatch of the previous day estl
mated that the Boers in that vicinity
numbered 2.000 and that they had five
guns, and Judging from the absence of
any statement to the contrary in the
official report it is believed the British
were slightly superior in numbers.
The Boers had chosen a position with
their oustomary skill and were strongly
intrenched. The British were compell
ed to carry their three ridges in succes
sion. Apparently the guards bore the
brunt in carrying the last ridge by a
bayonet charge, after its defenders had
been shaken by shrapnel shells
Nothing Is said as to whether the po
sitions so gained were held and the
destruction of ammunition seems to
Indicate that the contrary was the case
While General Methuen can be con
gratulated on a brilliant victory, It is
again at the cost of a heavy loss or om
cers and men.
The diary of events at Mafeklng up
to November 15 has arrived. It gives
little that is new. At that date Colonel
Baden-Powell had no idea of being re
lieved for a fortnight, or perhaps a
month. Both Mafeklng and Klmber
ley. however, seem to be quiet.
Later details regarding the Arundel
reconnaissance say that the Boers there
were engaged In destroying the rail
way. One account says that after the
retirement an ambulance train with
doctors was sent out from Naauwpoort.
If this were so, the British casualties
must have exceeded three.
The situation In Natal remains ob
scure. Fighting is reported at both
Estoourt and Ladysmlth. It was at
first reported that heavy firing had
been heard in the direction of Willow
Grange, leading to the belief that Gen
eral Hlldyard had mad a sortie. Later
advices state that General White went
from Ladysmlth and inflicted a defeat
on the Boers,
It would be premature to give full
credence to either report. What Is
quite certain Is that Ladysmlth. Est'
court and the Moot river station are ail
isolated, and the Boers seem able, after
detaching enough force to hold three
British forces aggregating 17,000 men.
to push on toward Pletermaritsburg
with some 7,000 men.
A disquieting feature of the whole
campaign is the fact that all the ad
vancing generals report meeting the
Boers In force. In view of the brilliant
success of General Joubert In partly
paralysing the relieving columns, the
question is being asked, what would
have happened had ha at the outset of
the war, instead of sitting down at La
dysmlth, pushed on to Pletermarits

WHO SHALL BE FIRST.
Cabinet Ministers' Wives Faca a
Washington, D. C (Special.) "Make
way for the ladles!" Of course. But
which ladies shall make way for the
That Is the question that agitates so
ciety here and the Importance of the
question Is emphasized by the struggle
for precedence between the unmarried
women, the younger set and the mar
At the reception which President Mc
Kinley gave for the Presbyterian syn
od, Mrs. Hitchcock, wife of the secre
tary of the Interior, alone of the wives
of cabinet officers, was In the city. Mrs.
Hitchcockv.promptly arrived at tne
White house, and took her place next
to Mrs. McKinley, In the line of women
who told the ministers how very glad
they were to see them.
Half an hour after the reception be
gan Miss Margaret Long, daughter of
he necretarv of the navy, arrived, a
charming woman, and proud, who In
sisted that Mrs. Hitchcock must yield
her the place of honor, because she said
official etiquette orders that the navy
denartment has precedence over the
department of the Interior. Mrs. Hitch
cock, despite tne aignity oi ner
years, Is very gentle and unobtrusive.
She was greatly embarrassed by mis
Mrs. Hitchcock. Mrs. Charles Emory
Smith, wife of the postmaster general,
and Mrs. Gage, wife of the secretary of
the treasury, particularly desire the de
termination of this question of eti
quette. John Adldson Porter, secretary
to the president, may have to Issue an
ultimatum on this nice point from the
White house. Consequently, Mr. Porter
s truly unhappy.
The women of the diplomatic circle,
maids and matrons, are warring too.
Thorn Is much dissatisfaction that to
Mlns Cascslni, niece and adopted daugh
ter of the Russian minister, are given
the privileges which would be accorded
to bis wife, and that to Miss Andrade,
daughter of the Venezuelan minister,
Imllar distinctions are extended, -me
wives of the ambassadors and ministers
desire that these young women take
step" below them.
Mr. Porter, In his unhappy position,
will have precedents to guide him. By
the social law, which has hitherto been
accepted It Is ordained that on occa
sions of public receptions the wire oi
the vice president stands next to the
wife of the president, and next In order
the wife of each cabinet officer, ac
cording to the order of the creation of
the department In the cabinet.
Custom has ordered that, when a
cabinet officer Is a widower, the lady
who presides over his home can occupy
the same position as would be given
his wife. Thus to Miss Morton, sister
of the former secretary of agriculture,
and to MIhb Herbert, daughter of Mr.
Cleveland's secretary of the navy, were
given permanent places in the execu
tive receiving line.
Miss Morton's place was at the end of
the line, as her brother's department Is
the youngest In the cabinet. Miss Her
bert was entitled to stand next to the
wife of the secretary of war. With
true tact, however. Miss Herbert re
fused to take precedence of the mat
rons of the cabinet circle, and yielded
gracefully, even to Miss Morton, who
was her senior In years and experience.
This has been regarded by some as a
precedent which should control.
Hut women In general do not follow
precedents. They make them.
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL.
Kansas City, Mo. (Special.) The su
preme council of the American Equal
Wage union, recently Incorporated un
der the laws of Missouri, with head
quarters In Kansas City, has Issued an
address to the wage workers of the
United States. The union was founded
on the belief that to eradicate the
liractlce of paying ilowte- wages to
women for the same work performed
by men means a revolution In the so
ciological conditions of the country. Its
main o)eci is to secure Justice to wo
men who work for waxes, to protect
children from unnecessary Industrial
servitude, and to discourage atrlkea and
accomplish its work by means of edu
cation, agitation and moral suasion.
Hxcerpta from the address follow:
"On an Indus! rial nation Ilka this.
where a vast majority of the people are
waaje workers, the value of a day'a
work bears an Intimato rata tlon to the
prosperity of the country, and. for that
reason, beeotaas a mattor oi auprame
