Half way down he slope they met a terrific infantry and artillery fire. The men fell rap- dly and the wounded were carried to he rear. But in spite of the steady work of the Boers' guns and the sharnshoQters concealed behind the ticks, the increasing fire of the ad- 'ancing British infantry gradually gained the upper hand, and the Man- ihesters nnd Gordons, edging to the ight, gained the top ridge, thus out- ianking the enemy's left. At 6 o'clock the bugles sounded the 'charge" and tlie British swept ahead. The Boers fought to the last, only attempting to escape when fur- ;her fighting was hopeless. HILLS AEE CARRIED. In the meantime, the Devonshires, pressing steadily up the left, were strongly opposed at the Boer camp and from the flanking hills but they carried both at this charge, with wild cheers and bugle blasts. By 7 o'clock the British had gained the po- sition, and "cease fire" was sounded. Three twelve-pounder Nordenfelts were captured, with quantities of munitions. The Boer dead and wounded among the rocks, who were numer- ous, were attended to as far as pos- sible in the dark. General French thanked the troops on the field, and especially mention- ing Colonel Ian Hamilton's splendid handling of the infantry. The Brit- ish bivouacked on the captured posi- tion Saturday night. Some estimates place the Boer losses at 500 men, but this is prob- ably exaggerated. Colonel Scott-Chisholm, the only British officer killed, was formerly attached to the Ninth Lancers. He served with distinction in tin Afghan war nnd organized the pres- ent Imperial Light Horse, a major- ity of whom are refugees from the Rand. SEVERE BLOW TO BURGHERS The death of General Viljoen is a severe 'blow to the burghers and the death of General Kock and the cap ture of General Pretorios will handi cap the further movements of thii column. According to advices from Durban Natal, the Boers have entered Zulu land, a Inrge column advancing to wards Melolth. The best opinions do not credit th< reports that the Boers are suing fo peace nor that they arc likely t< yield at present, though they thin! the Boers will probably, retreat tc their line of defence in the inouii tain passes of Laings Nek an< Drakenburg. where they hav British naval movements are due t a rumor that .Russia, with the as sent of France, is about to acquir from Spain Ceuta, of some othe naval station on the African coasl Elsewhere it is stated that th movements of the French Mediter ranean fleet in the neighborhood the Levant, where it could easily b joined by the Russian bliick fleet, via the straits of the Dar danells, is occasioning suspicion Lady Randolph Churchill and Mrs Arthur Paget are organizing a fum among American ladies in Englam with the intention to equip a hospital ship for service 01 the South African coast at a cost o Lady Curzon and Mrs Bradley Martin have been invitei to join the committee.

THE QUEEN'S SATISFACTION London, Oct. followin will appear in today's Court Circu lav: "Balmoral, Oct. news o the important successes at Glenco and Elandslaagte has been receiver by the queen with the greatest sat isfaction. While admiring tlie gal lant conduct of the troops, hov ma jesty is most deeply grieved to hea of the heavy losses the victoric ave occasioned and greatly deplores loss of so many valuable lives." MANY HEAR DEATH'S CALL LORD WOLSLEY'S SUMMARY. London, Oct. parllament- ry secretary of the war office, Mr. Wyndham, made a statement n the house of commons today, say- ig: "Lord Wolsley sums up the posi- ion in Natul, early this morning, as ollows: In the battle in Elandslaagte, Ictober 21, two guns were captured rom the Boers, who lost heavily. A large column of the enemy ap- >eared advancing1 from the north and west on General Yulew, who onsequently, had fallen back from Dundee and was concentrating at ilencoe junction. In this operation he wounded and medical attendants rere left at Dundee. General Vhite was in position at Ladysmith and is being reinforced from Pieter- maritzburg1. The enemy appears to s in large numerical superiority.' SINEWS OF WAR. The chancellor of the exchequer, Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, made a .tatement on the question of the ex- penditure .entailed by the Transvaal var. He said the expenditure for he year had been increased by the supplementary vote to a total of but, he added, the revenue had increased and he ex- pected there would be over his estimate of the revenue. This would be accordingly a contri- bution toward the unforseen expen- diture and would leave about to be provided. He thought there should be no ad- dition to the fixed debt, but that the money should be raised by n tem- porary addition to the floating debt. The chancellor of the exchequer therefore asked for power to raise by treasury bill, the whole repayment and the question of fresh taxation to be left over to the next financial year. Sir Michael also pointed out that the present war differed from pre- vious ones and that the estimates had been more carefully drawn up. No one could foresee what the to- tal cost would be. but the British troops had met with brilliant suc- cess and the colonies were loyal. Although there might be some- thing in today's news giving cause for anxiety, yet he saw no reason nnticipate that the campaign would not be brought to a successful :onclusion within the period for which the estimates were formed. Sir Henry Campbell-Bannermon, the leader of the opposition, agreed that this was not a proper time to discuss the financial question; tha it was not desirable to show a sign of disunion. The proposals of Sir Michael Hicks-Beach were agreed to by a vote of 336 to 23. MRS. JOHN H. CODY EXPIRED SUDDENLY. Mrs. Oppliger and Mrs. Hammond. Two Old Residents, Pass Away Deaths and Funerals.

Mrs. Oppliger has reached an age of seventy-two years. For more than a year past she has been a sufferer i from dropsy, and during the past' few weeks her decline has been rapid. Mrs. Oppliger was a native of Bavaria, and came with her par- ents to America sixty-seven years ago. After a residence of one year in Buffalo they started westward to find a new home in the land of promise. From Toledo they trav- eled down the Maumee river in a "dug-out" canoe, a boat made by scooping out the inner portion of a log. In the forests of Adams town- ship, three miles east of the city, the family settled and began their new life i under pioneer conditions. There were few white settlers in that section, and in the years that followed came the advancement of the country and the development of the splendid character that marked the early citizenship of northern Indiana. Of such was the subject of this sketch. During her early life Mrs. Oppliger studied the homeopathic school of medicine, and for thirty years practiced the profession, among her patients be- ing many of the older residents of the county. Mrs. Opplig-er's family name was Dreibelbiss. She was twice married, her first husband's name being Eg- gemann. Her second husband, Daniel Oppliger, died thirteen years ago. Surviving the venerable pioneer are the following children; Messrs. P. Eggemanu, chairman of the board of public works; Conrad, William and Theodore Eggemann, of this city, and David Eggemann, of Kansas City; Mrs. Susan Hocker, of Wheatlnnd, Iowa; Mrs. Charles Stetzel, of Huntington; Mrs. Emily Gretzinger and Mrs. William Boer- ger, of this city.

The eath of this aged pioneer came while lie was apparently enjoying a peace- ul sleep. Mrs. Hammond had been feeble health for some time, but was presumed to be improving. the physician last visited her Saturday her condition appeared be most encouraging and during he night she rested unusually well. ?oward moruing it was noticed that he peaceful sleep was becoming the slumber of death and despite the fforts of attendants Mrs. Hammond passed away without arousing. Mrs. Hammond came to Allen coun- ty from London, England, in 1852 One year later she was united in mnr- to William Hammond and since that time had lived continuously on the farm where she died. She leaves a husband, but no children. Mr. Hammond is now in very feeble health.

The departure of the various con- tingents of the army corps was con- tinued today and was effected smoothly. There were striking: scenes of en- thusiasm wherever the troops were embarking: and the Second Eoyal Irish fusileers had an especially noteworthy send-off at Colchester, where they almost had to fight their way to the railroad station. During the course of the day's pro- ceedings Patrick O'Brien, par- nellite member for Kilkenny City, was suspended for declaring that the hands of the British secretary of state for the colonies, Mr. Chamber- lain, are as much stained with blood as those of any murderer who ever ascended the scaffold.
