The Fitchburg, with independent management, shows an extremely low rate, with a reduction from the preceding year, while the Boston & Elaine, with consolidation and division of territory, shows an advance and very much higher price. The New York, New Haven & Hartford road, also with consolidation and division of territory, shows a course similar to that of the Boston & Maine.

Watts, chief of tho Boston bu reau of criminal Investigation, arrived here this morning to look atter toe case against William W. Coe of Somervhle, recently treasurer of the International motor company, with works in Fall River and Boston, who was arrested Sunday at the request of the Boston police on the charge of larceny of $5000. Coe is held pending requisition papers. The papers are not expected un’il next month, when oflicers from Massachusetts are to come here. Coe has secured counsel and intends, it is said, to make a contest. Just what the chief inspector from Boston is here to do is not yet clear to the local authorities, but it is known that fear that Coe might defeat the application for his extradition caused activity on the part of those Interested in his prosecution. How long the chief Inspector Is to remain is not known. Ho will probably leave town as soon as the facts have been presented to some lawyer. who will have charge of tho prosecution.

Belie# Were exiled in to Quiet Them at an Illustrated Lecture in Brookline Town Hall. Yesterday afternoon at the lower town hall In Brookline there was an illustrated lecture by Prof Augustus B< d-ford on “The History of Our Flag” be-for 400 or more grammar school children. The boys so disturbed the meeting that the police were called in, and over 50 were ejected. The youngsters, whose ages ranged from 5 to 14 years, climbed upon the stage and broke the pointer that the speaker used, and even did damage to the flags that Prof Bedford used to Illustrate his remarks. The lecture was under the auspices of Johanna Aspinwall chapter, D. A. H. A prominent citizen said last night that tho children should have been accompanied by their teachers, and It would have all been avoided. In the evening Prof Bedford delivered his lecture again before a small but fashionable audience. THM WEATHER. WASHINGTON.

It is practically settled, however, that the board will organise when ti next meets, which will be on Tuesday. Alderman Day, whose vote is necessary to carry out the wish of the democratic caucus which nominated Alderman Doyle for chairman, stated yesterday that the matter had been delayed long enough and that on Tuesday he would vote to proceed with the organization. e=>    WI    m    ARMIJO "///, -S',.,.    ,7/    flit    5 i afft* W* 5 ,lt, S >fjrf “* ^ jfP^r J    on,O'    ^ *1    'h BATTLE OH SPION KOP.

YOUNG ANALYZES THE BOER TACTICS LONDON, Jan. 26 - The war office today posted tho following dispatch from Gen Buller, dated at Spearmans camp, Thursday, Jan. 25, noon : “Gen Warren’s garrison, lam sorry to say, I find this morning, had in the night abandoned Spion Kop.” Gen Buller reports that the British casualties January 24 were: Killed, officers, 6; noncommissioned officers and men, 18. Wounded, officers, 12; non-commissioned officers and men, 142. Missing, 31 men. Gen Buller’s dispatch giving the list of British casualties is dated Spearmans Camp, Jan 26, 10.25 a rn, so there has been no delay in the communications passing between Gen Buller and the war office. The killed include Colonel Buchariaii-Riddell of the King’s Royal Rifles. He served in the Niger war of 1881. It is not clear whether the casualties include those at Spion Kop, or only those resulting from the fighting prior to the Spion Kop engagement. ENGLAND RESIGNED. BOER TACTICS WIN. CORPORATION COUNSEL BAILEY AND ALDERMAN DAY. This means that Alderman Doyle will be the chairman. He has the pledges of six of the democratic aldermen that they will vote for him, and Alderman Day has agreed to vote for Mr Doyle w’hen it is shown on the roll call that Ave of the democrats will vote for him. There were several party votes in the board yesterday, and on each Mr Day was recorded with his democratic associates, proving that the democrats at least are getting nearer together. The city clerkship question was not before the board, no notice having been received from the common council of (he adherence of that body to Edw’ard J. Donovan, its first choice. Pres Kiley of tho common council was asked w hy the city clerkship matter did not appear on the calendar. He stated that he had not signed the certificate of election of Mr Donovan, and for that reason it was not sent to the city clerk by clerk O’Kane of the council. SIX AMERICANS SHOT. Gen Torres Gav; the Order for Their Execution Near the Bacatete Mountains, Mexico. FIL RAHO, Tex, Jan 26—The mail from Gunynmus, Sonora, Mex, brings a report that six Americans—David Cusick, John Eldridge, George Lunt, Charles Burns, Loll Webster and Henry William:*—were shot last week near the Ba -mete mountains, east of Guayamus, by order of Gen Torres, in command of the Mexican troops operating against the Yaquis. It is further reported that the matter was brought lo the attention of the American consul at Guayamus, but that the latter declined to act. It Is raid the Mexican troops found the Americans in friendly intercourse with the Yaquis whom the troo! a have surrounded. Some of the name# are known here a# those of prospectors.

Mr O’Kane was sought for during tho meeting of the board to get the record of Mr Donovan’s election, but ho was not in his office. Had the notice of Mr Donovan’s election been received the board, if It had taken a vote on the city clerkship at all, would have again voted for Frank O’Toole. lf the board on Tuesday next elects Alderman Doyle chairman, which is the program now, Mr Donovan will De elected city clerk. Alderman Day said yes- Coutiuued on tile Third Fug*, LONDON, Jan 27, 4 a rn—Seven days of fighting have left the mala Boer positions Intact, and Gen Buller .* army 706 men weaker, according to the official casualty lists, which seemingly do not include the Spion kop losses, aa those last forwarded do not mention Gen Woodgnte’s wounding. England Is possessed by a depressing sense of failure, although not a word in criticism of her generals and soldiers is uttered. Not much effort is made to place a happy construction upon Gen Buller’s taro 18 words telling of the retirement from Splon kop. and there la en uneasy impression abroad that worse news is yet to come. At one of the military clubs tonight the statement passed from one member to another that the war office had received an unpleasant supplementary dispatch from Gen Buller, which was being held up for 12 hours. Mr Spencer ’Wilkinson, In the Morning Post, writes as follows of the Spion kop loss: “This Is a serious matter, and an attempt will not here be made to minimize it, for no greater wrong can be done to our people at home than to mislead them about the significance of the events of the war. Tile rjght way is to tell the truth us far as wo know it.” But facts from the neighborhood of tho Tugela are scantier than ever. The censorship now is simply prohibitive and something is wrong with the cables. The break on the “ast coast lines has been repaired, but the cable between Hun Thome und Loandu on the west coast Is now Interrupted.    « Mora troops Is the only suggestion here as to the way to break the Boer resistance. Mr Wilkinson regrets that Gen Buller has not 20,(XXI more men, declaring that if they would not make victory certain his enterprise without them is hopeless. The Spectator, dealing with the necessity of large additional military preparations, says: “It may be that we have yet another cycle of disasters in front of us.” The transport Assuye arrived at Cape To*n last Friday with 2127 officer# and men. The first portion of the 7th divi sion Is afloat. Hence, with 10,000 men of this division and about 9000 others now at sea, it lies in the power of Lord Roberts to reinforce Gen Buller heavily. This course Is advised by military writers. Although Flngland’s nerves are severely tried, her nerve Is absolutely unshaken, and probably nothing that eau happen in South Africa will change In the slightest degree her Intentions. She will continuo to receive bad news, lf it comes, with dignity, and will maintain her determination to win at lust. The morning papers editorially advise coolness and judgment and a careful avoidance of overestimating the importance of the lost position. The Times says: “The natural disquietude of the public Is Increased by the singular vague-I ness and inconsistency of Gen Buller’s I dispatches. “There Is, indeed, a very singular and somewhat disquieting attitude of detachment in Gen Bullet’s comments as revealed In the Gazette’s dispatches. “For Instance, his comment as to the action at Xoutpans drift, his remark concerning the probability that British officers would In time learn the value of scouting, might properly have come from a foreign military attache, but It is rather more than surprising that It should be thrown out In this casual, irresponsible fashion by the head of the forces concerning his subordinates, a Week or two, moreover, after the loss of the gun# on the Tugela. “Tile consequences of this latest cheek may be very serious to tho gallant Ladysmith garrison. It is impossible to estimate the next movement. “It may be that Gen. Buller will be compelled to retire from the ground he lately won, but in any event wo may be sure that the British people will not show themselves wanting in fortitude and steadiness. “The government would be well advised to call out Immediately all the militia and to expedite the dispatch of the Sill division and of the 4th cavalry brigade. No doubt Lord Roberts will strain every nerve to enable Gen Buller to re dly Franklin Iv. Young.) I With tho failure of Gen Warren to retain possession of his position on j SpfKn kop, a great, change for the I worse is apparent in the situation of Gen Butler's army. From the vague reports put out by the English war office it is hardly possible to determine exactly tile details of the night attack made by Gen Warren against the right Hank of the Boers. But by putting this and that together and by the application ! of the rules which govern the mili-I fury art, ii is not impossible to get i at what perhaps may bD an approxi-! mate description. At this moment the,general public seems to be of the opinon that Gen Warren did succeed in capturing Spion kop, driving out the Boers and occupying tile hill from the bottom to the crest. But this does not seem to be the ease. Of course the available %naps of the Natal country are more or less inaccurate and to a large extent entirely lacking in topographical information. But it seems quite clear that for about a mile from the north side of Trichard’s ford over the Tugela, a rolling, broken country extends to I the northward, which constantly and : rapidly rises in a series of precipitous 1 hights, and seemingly these hights i extend to the east and to the west j for many miles. These hights apparently constitute a natural aud formidable military line of defense against the advance of a hostile army to the northward. Of this fact the Boers certainly have j taken full advantage, with the result that Gen Buller’s army, although of- eontlnii«>(I oil tit** Fourth Finer. SPECIAL NOTICE.
