LONDON , Jan. 28. General Duller
says General Warren's troops have re
treated south of the Tugela river. The
Boers say that the British lost 1,500
killed Wednesday. It is believed here
that this includes the Avoundcd. The
Boers also claim that 150 of the Engj j
lish troops surrendered at Spionkop.
General Buller's dispatch to the Avar I
office states that Spionkop Avas abandoned - j
doned on account of lack of Avater , inability - i
ability to bring artillery there and the
heavy Boer fire. General Buller gives
no list of casualties. His Avhole force
withdrew south of the Tugela river
with the evident intention of reaching
Ladysmith by another route.
LONDON , Jan. 29. Following is the
text of General Buller's dispatch dated
Spearman's Camp , Saturday , January
27 , G:10 p. m. :
"On January 20 Warren drove back
the enemy and obtained possession of i
the southern crests of the high tableland - i
land extending from the line of Aclbn
Homes and Hongersport to the Avcstern
Ladysmith hills. From then to January
25 he remained in close contact Avith
"The enemy held a strong position
on a range of small kopjes stretching
from nortliAvest to southeast across the
plateau from Acton Homes through I
Spionop to the left of the Tugela. j
"The actual position held Avas perfectly - i '
fectly tenable , but did not lend itself
to an advance , as the southern slopes
Avere so steep that Warren could not
get an effective artillery position and
water supply Avas a difficulty.
"On January 23 I assented to his at- j
tacing Spionkop , a large hill , indeed a }
mountain. Avhich Avas evidently the key
to the position , but Avas far more ac
cessible from the north than from the
"On the night of January 2J he at
tacked Spionkop , but found it very dif
ficult to hold , as its perimeter was too
large , and Avater , whicu he had been
led to believe existed in this extraor
dinary season , Avas found difficult to
. "The crests Avere held all that day i
against severe attacks and a heaA-y
shell fire. Our men fought Avith great
gallantry- Avould especially mention
the conduct of the Second Cameronians
and the Third King's Rifles , Avho sup
ported the attack on the mountain
from the steepest side and in each case
fought their Avay to the top , and the
Second Lancashire Fusileers and Second
end Middlesex , who magnificently
maintained the best traditions of the
British army throughout the trying
day of January 24 , and Thoruycroft's
mounted infantry , \vho fought through
the day equally Avell along the side of

Avoundetl , the officer Avho succeeded him
decided on the night of January 24 to j
abandon the position and aid so before j
daAvn of January 25. j
"I reached Warren's camp at 5 a. ra. i
on January 25 and decided that a second
end attack upon Spionkop Avas useless
and that the enemy's right Avas too
strong to alloAV me to force it.
"Accordingly , I decidett \vithdraAV
the forces to tlie south of the Tugela.
A.t G a. m. we commenced AvithdraAving
the train and by 8 a. m. January 27
( Saturday ) Warren's force Avas con
centrated south of the Tugela Avithout
the loss of a man or a pound of stores.
"The fact that the force could with
draw from actual touch in some cases
the lines Avere less than 1,000 yards
apart Avith the enemy in tne manner j
it did is I think sufficient evidence of
the morale of the troops , aiiu that AA-O
Avcrc permitted to withdraAV our cum
brous ox and mule transports across
the river , eighty-five yards broad , Avith
tv.entv-foot banks and a very SAvife cur

At dawn the Heidelberg and Carolina
lina contingents , supplemented from
other commandos , began the ascent of
the hill. Three spurs , precipitous pro
jections , faced the Boer positions. Up
these 'the advance was made. The

race of rocks.
Scaling the steep hill the Boers
found that the English had improved
the opportunity and entrenched heav

was an open veldt , which had to be
rushed under a heavy fire , not only
from the rifles , but of lyddite and
shrapnel from field guns.
Three forces ascended the three
spurs co-ordinately , under cover of the
fire from the Free State Krupps , a
Cruesot and a big Maxim. The Eng

bayonet , but their infantry went down

The Boer advance continued on the
two kopjes east of Spionkop. Many
Boers were shot , but so numerous
were the burghers that the gaps filled
automatically. Toward twilight they
reached the summit of the second
kopje , but did not get further.
The British Maxims belched flame ,
but a wall of fire from the Mausers
held the English back. Their center ,

MINNEAPOLIS , Jan. 29. A special
to the Times from Tacoma , Wash. ,
Estimates made by local shippjpg
men show that about 15,000 men are
intending to reach Cape Nome by the
first steamers from Puget Sound and
DaAvson. Two-thirds of this number
A\ill go from Tacoma , Seattle and San
Francica and the balance will go down
the Yukon river from Dawson and
other Yukon towns. A great prospec
tive race is in sight between these
twon contingents. The first arrivals
will secure the best part of the beach ,
which will be in tha greatest demand
beacuse beach claims may be worked
without flumes or machinery. Accord
ing to latest advices , over half of
Dawson's population will head for
Cape Nome as fast as the Yukon
steamers wintering on the upper river
can follow the outgoing ice down
stream. Dawson miners have great
hopes of reaching their mecca first
and to accomplish this are even pre
pared to leave the steamers below Nu-
late and make a portage of 200 miles
across the Tundra.
Nearly thirty steamers , each carry
ing from 300 to 1,000 passengers , are
uov.r scheduled to sail from coast ports
between May 10 and June.

Washington , Jan. 27. Admiral Wat
son has cabled the Navy department
an account of the part taken by this
navy in the splendid campaign now
being made in southern Luzon by Gen
eral Schwan. The admiral's wspatch
refers to the engagement , or rather ser
ies of engagements , which took place
along the eastern and southern shores
of Lake Taal a wek ago. There is no
outlet from Lake Taal into the sea
navigable for war ships , but the Mar
ietta took up a position close to the
narow neck of land which separates the
lake from the sea and threw shells
across into the insurgents' defenses.
The admirals' account of the affair : s
as follows :
"The Marietta , with Ghecn com
manding , on the 19th co-operated with
the army in the capture of Taal ; en
filaded the insurgent trenches at about
1,060 yards. Lieutenant Price landed
with a Colt gun. Gheen reports that a
battalion of the Forty-sixth , under Ma
jor Johnson , carried the bridge and
town very gallantly , facing artillery
and rifle fire. "
MANILA , Jan. 27. A dispatch from
Sorsorgan , dated Thursday , January 25 ,
says Brigadier General Kobbe's expedi
tion has captured Sorsogan , Dongal ,
Bulan , Legaspi and Virac on Catan-
duanos island. The only resistance was
at Legaspi , where five Americans were
wounded and forty-five dead and fifteen
wounded Filipinos were found. It is
estimated that there were 125,000 bales
of hemp in these provinces and 76,000
bales in the ports of Sorsogan and Le
gaspi. The United States gunboat
Nashville's shrapne burned 8,000 bales
in Legaspi. The expedition arrived off
Sorsogan January 20 and the town dis
played white flags.
General Kobbe and Colonel Howe
with a battalion of the Forty-seventh
infantry , landed and raised the United
States flag. The insurgent force , num
bering 30 men , evacuated the place.
The natives were passive.
During the morning of January 23
the Nashville and Venus , with four
companies of the Forty-seventh in
fantry regiment , under Major Shipton ,
approached Legaspi. Filipino flags were
flying and tha trenches were crowded.
A detachment of 150 picked men , led
by Major Shipton , landed on the beach
about a mile north of the town ; the
Nashville bomoarded the trenches and
the enemy retreated to Albay , whence
they were easily dispersed to the hills.
About 200 insurgents , armed with
rifles , forced GOO unwilling villagers ,
armed with bows and arrows , to serve
in the trenches in the close range street
fighting before the enemy fled. The
Filipino dead were mostly villagers ,
who were attempting to flee.
The expedition Avill proceed to Samar
and Leyte , where the Forty-third in
fantry and a battalion of the Third
artillery will be distributed. The na
tives complain of lack of food , result
ing from the blockade. They are

NO ROOM FOR ROBERTS.
Mormon Keprescntatlvv-Klrct Not
nilttcd to Take Ills Seat.
WASHINGTON , Jan. 26. The case
of B. H. Roberts , the Mormon repre
sentative-elect from Utah , which has
occupied so much of the attention of
the house since the assembling of con
gress , Avas decided today by the vote
of 278 to 50. The exact language of
the resolution Avas as follows :
"That under the facts and circum
stances of the case Brigham H. Rob
erts , representative-elect from the state
of Utah , ought not to have or hold
a seat in the house of representatives
and that the seat to which he Avas
elected is hereby declared vacant. "
The amendment to expel Roberts
without seating him , offered by Lacey ,
was ruled out on a point of order and
the house /nly A-oted on the resolutions
of the majority and minority of the
The latter to seat and then expel
Roberts Avas defeated by 81 to 244. An
analysis of the vote shows that 170 re
publicans , seventy-tAvo democrats and
two populists voted against it and
seventy-one democrats , six republicans ,
tAVO populists and two silver republi
cans for it.
The majority resolutions , to exclude
Roberts and declare the seat A'acant ,
Avere adopted 268 to 50. The affirma
tive vote Avas divided as follows : Re
publicans , 1G8 ; democrats , 96 ; popu
lists , 4 , and the negative A'ote : Dem
ocrats , 47 ; silver republicans. 2 ; pop
ulists , 1.
There were over a score of speakers
today and the closing speeches on
each side were particularly able. Lan-
ham of Texas closed for the majority ,
and De Armond of Missouri for the
When Lanham concluded , Lacey , re
publican of loAva , offered an amend
ment to the majority resolutions pro-
A'iding for the expulsion of Roberts.
To this Taylor made the point of
order that the amendment Avas not
germane. The speaker sustained the
point of order on the ground that the
original proposition only required a
majority vote , Avhile if the amendment
Avere added it Avould require a two-
thirds vote. Th republicans applaud
ed the speaker's ruling.
Lacey appealed from the decision of
the chair. Tayler moved to lay that
motion upon the table. While til ?
vote en the latter motion Avas being
taken , it being apparent that it Avonld
carry by a large majority , Lacey with
drew the appeal.
The first vote Avas then taken on the
adoption of the minority question to
scat and then expel Roberts. At the
conclusion of the roll call , TaAvney ,
republican of Minnesota , the republi
can AA'hip.announccd that on account of
the nonpartisan character of the vote
he had made no effort to pair the ab
sent republicans. Undeiwood , demo
crat of Alabama , made a similar an
nouncement concerning the demo
Roberts Avaa present throughout the
day and only left the hall after the re
sult of the last vote had been an
nounced. An he did so he gave out a
statement justifying his retention of
his plural Avives en the ground that
his moral obligation was more bind
ing upon his conscience than technical
obedience to statutory law and saying
that there was Ittle excuse for the ex
traordinary efforts to crush a system
already abandoned and practically
dead. He said he was a martyr to "a
spasm of prejudice. "
He Avould not. he said , attempt to
run for congress again , although he
Avould go back home with a light
