A correspondent of the Times', wiring from Pretoria, says the aupply f horses Is still lamentably .short of the demand, and scarcely a sin gle column , can place its full mounted strength In the field. . The wastage of horses throughout the campaign has. says the correspondent. been remarkable While it la true that many animals have necessarily been hur ried on trek without previously being al lowed to become acclimatised. It is also true that the horses have often received unnecessarily hard treatment! One cause of the wastage is that many of the men who are now mounted went to South Africa lacking any experience of horses. But the culpable Indifference to th wel fare of this most Important factor in the fighting- efficiency of the British troops seems to . have, permeated the whole array. - "." ; , .. The correspondent says the Boers are thoroughly demoralized by the constant hustling. The scarcity of provisions Is also beginning to tell, and the hopelessness of the struggle is being brought home to all the Burghers. - The British will lose a great opportunity if they fail o press home the advantage they pos stM t the present moment, but' they must have , an '..unlimited number of horses, or the present rate of progress wiu be arrested. ... y-r , TROUBLE FEARED AT TANGIER, Poorer Classes Unable to Find Enough v Work Paris Temps Alarmed at '.

A huge cake of Ice, pn which were .250 fishermen, was blown out te sea this afternoon by he gale and Essexviile people are alarmed over their safety. Rain, accompanied by a gale, set in yesterday morning, but the ice was apparently thick and no danger was apprehended at this early date. ; About , two miles from the shore is a narrow strip of water in Saginaw Bay, known as the "Big Crack." that Is never frosen," even during the most severe weather. . During the cold months a soiUh wind drives the ice away from the shore. -The fishermen cross this crack and fish from the main body of Ice. This large floe of Ice suddenly was driven -away from the shbre ice, and as a heavy gale prevails to-niiiht there is more than the usual danger. The Ice floo .upon which the fishermen are adrift li far out beyond sight in Saginaw Bay, one of the roughest stretches of waters of the great lakes. The ice Is about twenty inches thick, buA has been considerably honeycombed b the recent warm spell. It Is possible that the ice has touched the west . shore of the bay. - If this is the case the -fishermen may be able to escape with the loss of their slelrhs and shanties.

The bill In quesUon .la a special act to in-' corporate the Western Mortgage Debenture Company. Although the concern proposes to do business in New York City, the introducer of the bill was a' Buffalo Assemblyman, Edward R, O'MalJey. The bill was . passed through the ' Assembly this week by the narrowest possible margin. - The bill provides that the company may. start business. with a paid-up capital stock of S100.0O0, and that It may increase this amount to S3.uO0,0OO. Ita Incorporators are glfen as John B. Fiske. GalUard C. -Smith, cRarles E. Travis, William N. King, and David F. Tourney. Many powers are conferred upon the company, and it is provided that in so far as the powers granted may be deemed to be at variance with the Seneral law of the 8tate, they are not to e controlled er limited b the general law. Speaking of the illl Assemblyman Palmer said:-"There-must be some extraordinary reason existing why a special act of the Legislature Is necessary to incorporate a burtness concern in this State. The provisions of this, bill are startling In character. The WU permits the company to do all kinds of business In the State and out of it with reference to personal and real property, and yet there seems to be no safeguards placed around the actions of the company." ;.. . . , , , : PITCHED BATTLE -' ; :-; : WITH ' OUTLAWS.

More than 2UI men are employed In the mine, and both day and night shifts are worked. - - -- The buildings of the mine occupy a bench oh the mountainside, and were erected In a location that was supposed to be protected from snowslldes by a ridge, which. It was thought.- would divert the course of any avalanche that might be started. The vest accumulation of snow within the past two - weeks, however, gave the slide to-daV such - a volume that nothing could stay Its progress until it reached the bottom of the caAon. , -r - TO BUILD 'NEW RAILROAD.
