Lord KobertH Apparently Has Plenty of Ketnrii South to Direct the Operations In the State Further NIJHK From Artlilmlre at Nntal. London, June despatch to the Times from Lorenzo Marqnez duterl Tuesday, says that thousands of burgh- ers nnder Commandant General Botha have taken an oath to continue the struggle to the bitter end. The despatch adds that Mr. Hollis, the American consul at Lorenzzo Mar- qnez has strartod for the Transvaal. Tho purpose of bis vsiit is unknown. London, Jane is generally ex- pected that General Roberts will halt at Pretoria a while before attempting to capture or disperse the Boers still in arms. Judging from present indica- tions this task will be fully as difficult as the well-wishers of the burghers have predicted. There is no more definite intimation of the whereabouts of Commandant General Botha and the commandos which oppofiod the British advance up- on the capital than is contained in the Pretoria despatches. Besides those forces, General DeWot's and others, which were looaied on Juno 2, there are still, according to a Maseru telegram (j.OOO Boors at Wittoberg and in the neighborhood of Bethlehem. They are reported to have been tsvice routed dnr ing the past week but the renewed predictions of their capture have not been fulfilled. Furthermore, the burgh- ers under General Steyn threaten Con siderable trouble. It is again suggested that General Roberts may find it necessary to return to direct the forces in the Orauge Free State. There is nothing from the English side in reference to the nrmistice in Natal. A despatch to the Telegraph from New Castle, clatfd June 4, savs that great numbers of Boers still occu- py Majuba Hill, Lmiug's Nek and the Pgwauie range as far east as An- globreobt Their positions are oarticnlarly strong, but the Boers are said to be greatly depressed by the cap- tare of Johannesburg and Pretoria. Generals Christian Botha, Fonrie and Protorins are in command. Their pro- visions ore scant and they are without Hour, meat and sugar. The correspond- ent Hays it is only a question of time when this disorganized rabble will sur- render unconditionally. According fo the Standard's corres- pondent with General Roberts the British prisoners, who wore removed, are reported to have been sent to Spel- ouken. A despatch to the Daily Mail from Lorenzo Marquez says that much sig- nificance is attached'-to the presence of many British warsips in the harbor there. It is generally admitted that if hero is trouble on the Transvaal bortl- ur between the Boers and Portuguese und serious developments follow, the British will assist the Portuguese. Tho latter are uneasy over the nrospect of difficulties growing out of the as- sistance they have rendered England. Ssx Mile Spruit, June 4, a m. stubborn resistance to the British advance was made by the Boers in the forts south of Pretoria and on the slopes commanding Six Mile Spruit, which the British held from early in the day. General Henry's Mounted infantry and Horse battery from the lirbt wore engaged. They wore sup- ported early in the afternoon by the Eleventh division, the Eighty-third, Eighty-fourth and Eighty-fifth field batteries and the naval guns. Tho Boers were well concealed, but they iwere compelled to withdraw from their western positions. At sundown they held the lidges in front of the forts. Sun Bonnets, 25c. Shirt Waists, 50c. 75c, 00.

The via- act is over a quarter of a mile in ength and stands 300 feet from the round. It.is used by the Erie and is ict designed for passengers. A stone oping 12 inones wide runs along the ater edge, unguarded by rail or any- hing else. Within tho past two years nnny persons have fallen from the tructure, striking the rocks below. Wesson and Hart were making a tri- ycle trip from Buffalo to their homes u New York, and when Lanesboro vas reached Hart dared Wesson to ride he structure, supposing they could go potweon the rails.

MoHt of tho I'eople Relieve the Slrucgl With KiiHgla Will Uegln In the Fall. Victoria, B. C., June to news brought by the steamer Em press of Japan, most of the people of Japan expect a war with Russia in the fall, many connecting the approaching mobilization of theJapanese army with other war preparations. While con gratnlating Great Britain on the sue cesses her armies are now achieving in South Africa, and on the ability dis played by her diplomatists in "hold ing off" the Yomiun Shim bun thinks that the latter result hai been materially assisted, so far as the Orient is concerned, by Japan's atti tudo. It doe's not attempt to place England nnder an obligation to Japan but i ventures to express a hope thnt tht, facts will be appreciated and that they will have the effect of drawing Ene land and Japan closer together. Thi Yorninri's belief is that every relax.a tion of vigilance on the part of Grea Britain in the far east creates an op portnnity for Russia. Elcht Oays In a Dory Halifax, N. S..
