In explanation, the committee said that a new and unexpected discrepancy had been found. This would indicate a big additional shortage in the city treasury.

Joseph Chamberlain, secretary of state for the colonies, has issued an official statement that he is now in communication with President Krugcr, of the South African republic, in an cndcavoi to avert serious consequences of the unauthorized and altogether unjustifiable act of Dr. Jameson, the administrator of the British South Africa company, in leading a force of from 500 to 700 men into the Transvaal to issist the Uitlanders in their contention against the South African republic. uovernor Robinson of the Cape Colony tias issued a proclamation publicly repudiating the act of Dr. Jameson and has caused to be published in the newspapers of Protoria and Johannesburg in injunction in the name of the queen to all her majesty's subjects in the Transvaal not to give aid to Dr. Jameson, but to obey the law and observe arder. Messengers have been sent to Dvertake Jameson, conveying orders to him and every officer accompanying him that they shall retire from the Transvaal territory immediately. The situation is very much aggravated by the fact that Dr. Jameson cut the wires behind him, rendering telegraphic 2ommunication with him impossible. Mr. Chamberlain sent a dispatch to the British South Africa company asking them to repudiate Jameson and his acts. To this dispatch the company replied that they were entirely ignorant of Jameson's acts or promises Mr. Cecil Rhodes, prune minister o the Cape Colony, in connection with this reply, stated that Jameson had acted without authority. He (Rhodes) had tried to stop him when he learned that he had gone into the Transvaal, but found that the wires had been cut, and that consequently he could not communicate with him. LOXDOX, January 3. — A dispatch to the Exchange Telegraph company says Dr. Jameson has been severely defeated by the Boers before Johannesberg. It says this news has been confirmed. A later cablegram from Governor Robinson forwards a dispatch from the British agent at Pretoria stating- that Dr. Jameson's force has surrendered, Colonial Secretary Chamberlain has eaTbfed to Governor Bobinson T»ig re> gret tfeal Dr. Jameson's disobedience &as lei to> saeht Isss of life.
