Bhe has, therefore, thought it right to jBoihnmn'icati." to the house/ that her koujefcty is, by proclamation, about to , order the embodiment of the militia and to call out the militia reserve force, or such part thereof, as her muj- agty may think neceasary, for per- fcokuf nt service.'' It is not believed that the militia i»rc to be sent to South Africa. Presumably they will replenish the de- British garrison towns, and permit the government to send la the Cape all the regulars necessary fr,); ^developments in South Africa. A Supplementary army estimate has t>eei» issued asking the house of commons to vote an additional 35,000 men to the Cape all the regulars rendered ftecycessary by developments in South (Africa, It is explained that the 35,000 men (represent the probable maximum ex•«BE beyond the establishment fixed lor 1899'-1900, and is in consequence of *he calling out of the reserves and ol [the temporary transfer of troops from 4he> Indian to the British establishment. With the additional £10,000,000, the total army estimates are £ 30,•37,200, over $150,000,000.

Bo era Cat Off the Water Supply of UafekinH— Me»mufe« Subject to Scrutiny. London, Oct. 19. — Advices from Pre- Londoii, Oct. 18. — Advices from Pretoria, summarizing the reports to the Transvaal government from Gen. Cronje, in command at the chief camp at the west side, announce that the $iarico and Rusteuburg commandos, field telegraph, occupied Bur- Drift, near the outskirts of Afefeking, on Monday, and took pos- aetbion of a fountain in the neighborhood, thus cutting off the water supply 9* the town.

The Orange Free State troops have destroyed the Modeler rivet bridge without opposition. A dispatch from Durban, Natal, says that refugees who arrived there Tuesday, from Pretoria, declare that the Boerb at the Transvaal capital admitted a Boer repulse at Mafeking, eight bitrghers being killed, and a number wounded. All messages to and fiom South AMca ar« subjected to scrutiny at Aden. Up to noon to-day no confirmation hnd been received -of the reportofse- rious Boer losses at Mafeking, but stories are arriving from various points so persistently and circumstantially that it appears probable the burghers have met with some measure of reverse. Accounts of the action at Mafeking are beginning to arrive from Pretoria. Therefore, if the Boers have any success, it is bound soon to be known. The report current at Delagoa bay- that 6,000 Boers have been repulsed at Newcastle is false. Gen. Joxibert has arrived at New- cattle, Natal. THE SAMOAN QUESTION.

"Negotiations have now been set on foot which, doubtless, will result in an arrbngemcnt in securing peace in the islands and safeguarding the interests ol the three powers. "Of the exact nature of the proposals, it is yet too early to speak. All I ihould say is that the discussion is proceeding in the best possible spirits." Interviewed Eiitflnnd'n Premier.

Mrs. Jenks made an heroic attempt to save her husband, but before she could rescue him, the flames cut -off all escape, and the old couple burned to death. IT MAY GO TO LAWTON. Speculation at the War Department of the Effect of the Retirement of Brlff.-Gen. Sliafter. New York, Oct 19.--A special to the Herald from Washington says: The belief at the war department is that the series of promotions and retirements following Shafter's removal frcm the active list will result in Gen. Lcwton getting the brigadier generalship, and that the next vacancy in that rank in January, 1900, following the retirement of Gen. Anderson, will be filled by Gen. Ma^Arthur. All of the present general officers of the regular army will retire before Gen. Lawton, with the exception of Brig.-Gen. Wade, who retires April 14, 1907. Gen. Lawton will retire one month earlier. Should anything happen to Gen. Wade, Gen. Lawton by his appoint- went now would be the immediate successor of Gen. Miles upon his retirement in 1903, and would have command of the army for nearly four years. Whether appointed now or in January Gen. MacArthur, if he lives, will be sure to be the commanding general for at least two years. ANDRADE'S PREDICAMENT. Belief that He Can Not Do Otherwine Thau Accept Condition* Iiu- by Cantro. Caracas, Venezuela, Oct. 19. — Senor Mateos, the peace envoy, bringing an ultimatum from the insurgent commander, Gen. Cirpiauo Castro, has returned to Caracas from Valencia, to meet President Andrade, who is expected to give an answer in the course of the day. President Andrade can not do otherwise thaji accept the conditions imposed by Geu. Castro, as he is virtually abandoned by all his supporters. Notwithstanding this, he still maintains that it may be best to transfer the seat of government to Marica- bo and continue the fight. The situation here is extremely criti- -e»l.
