Whites ittuke nn Attempt to r>ri»o Them iJa«ik, but Don't Succeed — linpld T'lro Gnus of the Kngllsh Cntwetl Hnvoo With the Blacks. CAPE TOWN, April 27.--The news of Saturday's events in Buluwayo show that the Matabeles are displaying great boldness and energy in the pursuit of their purpose to surround the town completely and cut off sill communication with the outside world. On Saturday morning it was found that the hostile forces of natives had surrounded the town on the north, east and west, their ranks being much too close to the town to allow of any freedom of action by those within. The pickets of the enemy were found to be in no case beyond four miles distant from the Buluwayo lines. They threatened thus to work an approach to the town which was speedily putting the place in jeopardy. Immediate steps were perceived to be necessary to Dislodge the Linos of the Enemy and drive them back. A column for attack was hastily formed, consistiug of 100 whites, 100 Cape "boys" and 100 natives. They were supplied with two rapid fire guns and were placed in command of Captain MacFarlane. They were speedily ready for an offensive" movement and thus commanded and equipped they sallied forth from the Buluwayo defenses at 7 o'clock on Saturday morning. They took a direction northeasterly from the town in the direction of the Uinguza river. They had proceeded only about five miles on this course, rivalling cautiously with scouts in advance and outriders on each side, when the enemy opened the attack. The Matabele force numbered not less than 8,000 and their attack Was Eager antl Well Directed. The column from Bulnwayo was just crossing a small stream, a tributary of the Umguza, when the attack opened. The overwhelming odds, 10 to 1, hurled upon the little column drove it back by mere weight of numbers and the advance parties were glad to reheat in haste across the stream. The Matabeles again advanced upon the little baud of warriors in formidable array, their line extending in a crescent formation, the horns of ^he crescent advancing to the front. As the howling savages closed in on the column they afforded an excellent target for the sweeping discharge of the rapid fire guns. The engagement which ensued Was a Hot and Desperate One, and dark, leaping bodies seemed to spring up as fast as they were mowed down. The Buluwayo force kept the river in their immediate front. The firearms did heavy execution among the hostile natives as they rushed up to the opposite bank. This only partly checked their fierce onslaught and many gained the side on which the whites stood. These were charged by the troopers and cut down or driven back into the stream. "When the Matabele in front were finally driven back they were.sesn to lave sustained a heavy loss. The little river was dyed a dark crimson with the blood of the victims of the Maxim gun. One observer counted 140 dead lying in small circuit close to the column. The losses sustained by the whites were three killed and several wounded, the exact, number not being stated. Although the attacking party came off without any very heavy losses, they did not drive the Matabeles back, but simply repulsed their attack. The hostile lines are practically as near to Bul- uwayo as ever, and it is certain that only a part of the Matabeles who are beleaguering Buluwayo were engaged in Saturday's fight. The uneasiness liere regarding the situation in the liard pressed settlement is unabated and about the only agreeable factor is that telegraphic communication with Buluwayo is still open. GARCIA SUCCEEDS GOMEZ. RUSSELL'S POSiflSft. Suiii to Have Ueeti Appointed Com- mander-iu-Chlef of Insurgents. MADRID, April a?.—Havana advices state that Calixto Garcia has been appointed commauder-in-chief of the in- GENERAL CALIXTO GARCIA. sargents by Maximo Gomez, who in future will promote the rebel cause in another capacity.

EX'Governnr Not feeek- Inar the Nomination. Yo«K, April 27.— The World prints a signed statement of ex* Governor William E. Russell of Massachusetts in response to a question from one of its staff correspondents; "I am greatly surprised to hear that the action of the Massachusetts convention has attracted any special attention outside the state. While I greatly appreciated the compliment of an in- dorsement by my state, I am not seeking the nomination, nor am I desirous of being the candidate, nor do I Wish any movement made in any state in my interest.

DES MOINES, April 23.— The Populist state convention held hero during the day was one of the largest in the history of the party in Iowa. Chairman H. R. Taubeneck of the national party and General J. S. Coxey of Ohio and General Weaver of Iowa were present. General Weaver, as temporary chairman, delivered an out and out free silver speech.

NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 28.— The Republican state convention was a'Mc- Kinley aiid Evans convention. This was seen in every move made, in all the speeches and in the shouts and applause of the delegates. The McKinley men were here to win, and, although they rubbed out one name on the slate and wrote another for harmony's sake, the instructions were for McKinley. The platform adopted renews the party's devotion to reciprocity, protection, sound finances, progress and human liberty; demands a readjustment of the tariff so as to afford protection reasonable and adequate; calls for reciprocity agreements and condemns the administration of President Cleveland. THE QUAY BOOM LAUNCHED. Anti-Quay Men Hade a Hard Fight, but Were Easily Knocked Out. HARRISBURG, Pa., April 25.—Representatives of the Republicans of Pennsylvania assembled in convention here and formally launched the boom of United States Senator M. S. Quay for the presidential nomination. This feat was accomplished amid scenes of much turbulence. The violent scenes were the result of the efforts of the anti-Quay delegates to secure the adoption of a resolution naming McKiuley as the second choice of the convention. After an exciting debate the proposition was defeated by a vote of 278 to Co. The THE CONNECTICUT PLATFORM. Only One monetary Standard and That Ono Is Gold. NEW HAVEN, Conn., April 23.—The platform adopted by the Republican state convention opens with a declaration in favor of o protective tariff, and the reciprocity plan advocated by the late James G. Blaiue. Upon the currency question, the convention says: "We are unalterably opposed to the issue of unsecured paper currency, either by the government or the banks; the free coinage of silver at any ratio, and favor a single standard of value and that standard gold.

BIcKInley Had 318 Delegates at the End of Last Week. NEW YORK, April 23.—Last week 112 delegates were elected to the Republican national conveu ..on at St. Louis, making a total of 608, or about two- thirds of the whole convention. Of this number the New York Tribune, in its weekly estimate, which commands general respect for the reason that it is not gotten up in the interest of any candidate or section, gives McKinley 818, Reed 99, Morton 66, Allison 88, Quay 88, Bradley 16 and Cullom 12, making a total of 587 votes. The Tribune takes the 21 votes of Alabama, 4 in New Jersey, 2 in Pennsylvania, 2 in South Carolina, 5 in Utah and 6 in New Mexico as being doubtful. The South Carolina pair have said they would vote for Harrison on the first ballot. Their Stand nn Money. WASHINGTON, April 25.—The delegates to the national Republican convention at St. Louis will be overwhelmingly for "sound money." Of the delegates already chosen 450 are said to be opposed to the free coinage of silver and an .estimate of the states which have not yet held conventions increases that number to 680. Only 454 are necessary to carry a plank for "sound money." Maryland liepublican.

WASHINGTON, April 26.—The fact that such unusual progress was made with the sundry flivil appropriation bill in the senate during the day and that the Democrats manifested no disposition to delay its consideration has greatly encouraged the Republican senators in the belief that an early adjournment is probable. It is understood that the Democratic leaders have practically agreed that congress shall close as soon as the appropriation bills can be disposed of and that they Will Make No Opposition to their consideration with as much dispatch as is consistent with their ideas of the demands of the public business. They will expect, however, that opportunity shall be granted for the consideration of one or two, measures, and, among other things, will ask that a vote shall be taken upon the resolution to seat Mr. Dupont as a senator from. Delaware. The Democrats think that in case a vote is taken on this proposition the resolution will be defeated. THE BRITISH RETREATED. Attached the Mataboles but Were Forced to Itetlre.
