LONDON, May ll—In the house of commons this afternoon the secretary of state for India, Lord George Hamilton, replying to a question on the subject, confirmed the reports heretofore received of the excessive famine In India, and the mortality therefrom in the native states. He a^ded that British officers had been sent to these states to advise and ast 1st the native govornmcn's, and that loans had been and would continue to be made by the Indian government to meet the expenses of the operations for the relief of the famine sufferers in territories outside of the British rule. 7m Lamson & Hubbard's Golf Hat THE NEWEST IDEA IN A HAT of lightest straw, stitched (no glue), it is the coolest hat imaginable.

Lord Roberts’ narrative closes with Thursday evening, but he continued his march yesterday toward Kroomsiad. id miles distant, and by this time he must know whether the Boers intend to fight there. Mr Winston Churchill says there were only 2000 Rears who opposed the British at band river. Another estimate Is that 6000 Boers, with six guns, made a rear guard action, while many other thousands, with convoys, retired without firing a shot. Pres Steyn and a council of the leaders of several thousand Free Staters In the Ladybrand and Flcksburg districts determined to submit to the men the question of continuing tho war or not at a great open air meeting. Tho fighting men decided to fight on. Stoyn. who appears to be in active command, began to advance toward the British and came into contact on Thursday with Campbell’s brigade and Brabant’s horse 20 miles northeast of Thaba N’Chu. A smart engagement ensued with no positive success on either side except that the Boer advance was stopped. Gen Rundle has disposed 10,000 infantry along a 20-mile front in such a it’ay as to bar a Boer advance toward Lord Roberts’ communication. With the exception of Brabant's colonial# Gen Rundle has no horsemen. The cavalry are all with Lord Roberts* advance. According to a Pretoria telegram Gen Buller is moving from Elandslaagte in the direction or Ilelpmakaar, and the British vanguard engaged a Boer patrol of Italians on Thursday. Twelve Italians are described as routing 60 British. The dispatch also says that "British reconnoitering parties have invaded the Transvaal near Fourteen Streams and that the scouts on both sides meet frequently with varying results." ’f'HWs Hff*’* %ffMI |    * rn * rn a? tin    mn    fillip*!    up .    * I    mm I tMm i tm miff** 4%’i' ty ♦ - n m    ■    WH    Pt§r*f*    till#*#! -i    **»-    M f'-.**#: «t %» ■ * -    #4**    ** mb#*’ b nip , mm    '-rn * U„„    (,    **r'i ■■    .s    i ■ ■ ■    1 rn    i I    it***# v>l I*!    fib4 * ffc*    'litiii*f t *k rn    WWWlL m    WWW    tortoni    hi    pmm SANI HI UPI, JEFFRIES Ex Champion Oui in lite 23d Round. pifh'tt mmw____ I (f,    . * Hf*' •mn# MnH ' fHrtn i. mm MHawblWlil ewe# • t* »r« n * *    *    ♦*-»    % * vMm n I, . f -    *M’    * f4    ' ewe * ■*• * t *ti a * Mi In % Ut *r«.<*<* with an ive* > ' Ityiw. of impi bin few*4* • I**?--!#** ut tmwm1 Qty*** rn in** ti# f * . •    , *t*e lh**    ie*,*    f my# thfiMH mn *** *fb I*” ft***-*"5 *h I I VI hmf* tv ‘ fee* rn. tw* fib* etifwvei •MMR* IL s hint'4 ■ < I# I.- * .-.I ii let# ibqtdt by etn fit hank will ie cebine!

After a brigade parade they were dismissed. William F. Murray Jr, commander of the 2d regiment, Boston Latin school, acted as brigadier general during the parade Sanford Bate#, colonel of tile 1st regiment, English high school, was in command of the brigade during the review on the common, and G.

Irtthe Boston schoolboys’ brigade was called upon to get anywhere quickly, there Is no doubt of its ability to reach the destination ahead of time. They made a remarkably quick march over the route, hustling along as lf they were reinforcements being hurried to the relief of some hard-pressed command. Starting from the armory of the English high school at 10.16, at ll o'clock the commanding officer and his staff passed the reviewing stand at city hall Alert and businesslike, the boys kept up a brisk marching gait over the entire route, aril presented a fine Impression of strength and youthful precision. Their lines were especially true, and the cadences, especially In the brisk time set by the bands in passing up School st, were precise. The general military bearing was admirable, even to Maj Keith's pony battalion from tho English high school. These little fellows, in three companies, made the biggest hit of the parade.

Jetties is still champion. He retained his title tonight by defeating James J, Corbett at the Seaside athletic club, Coney island, in the 23d round. It was one of the greatest glove flghtn ever seen in this country'. Up to tho very time tho knockout blow wa# landed It was any one’s fight. Then in the 23<i round, aa they came lo a clinch, Jeffries sent In a left-hand swing that landed Just under the jaw. More than IOO time# he had tried and missed with this same blow. It resembled a fight between a greyhound and a mastiff. The mastiff would rush and scrap, but the greyhound would trip and run, and so it was until finally the mastiff seized his enemy and it was all over. So with the two men. Jeffries missed again and again, swinging his great arms with a force that seemed great enough to break Iron. Corbett hit him at will and landed four times to Jeffries' once. His cleverness amanori every one. It wu# a fair fight, the men breaking clean, and there were really no clinches. When the end came the men were in the cornet1, and Corbett fell with his head upon the lower rope where Le rested as referee Charley White couffli d him out. George Considine, a# Corbett went down, rushed along the outside of the ring to throw water upon him- Jeffrie* rushed to the side and thrust him away. Corbett -was carried to his corner. He soon revived, and, resting upon Oonsidine'a shoulder, staggered across the ring and shook hands with Jeffries. Jeffries patted him on the shoulder and he returned the caress. Then Brady, Corbett’s old manager, shook hands with him and congratulated him on his great fight. Corbett took his defeat good naturedly, and although he smiled, It was a tearful smile and his eyes were damp with tears hard held. FAST AND CLOSE FIGHT. Corbett’s Surprising Cleverness Most Striking Feature of Contest and Entitles Him to All Honor. SEASIDE CLUB, Coney Island, May ll—In the fastest, prettiest and closest heavyweight ring battle ever fought in New York, Jam** J. Jeffrie# ha# re affirmed hi# right to tho champion#hip. lit the arena at the Beanlde athletic club, tonight, he decisively defeated Jim Corbett, once champion of the world himself, after 22 rounds of scientific fighting- It was a clean knockout, and it came so quickly that it dazed the thousand# of keen, alert, intent spectators and left them in doubt a# to just how the winning blow was delivered. It wa* avowed that it was a left hand jolt to tho jaw, but Jeffries himself and referee Charley White, who stood at his aide, say it xvus a right hand swing, There is credit for tho victor and credit for the vanquished in this cleverest of ring battles. Jeffries must be awarded the laurels of victory, yet his opponent is entitled to ail honor for Ids most wonderful fight. That feature stands out in relief as the most striking one of the contest. Corbett emerged from a year’s retirement from the ring rejuvenated and fie all. He wa# aa fast and clever as back In the days when people marveled at his skill. His foot work was wonderful and his defense perfect. He outboxed his man at both long and short range and lf he had had the strength necessary would have claimed art early victory. A hundred limes ho ducked under left swings that would have ended him Just as did the punch that finally did. At times he made the massive Jeffries look like a beginner In the art of offense aud defense with the hands. His strategy was to jab and get away, and when Jeffnss stood over his quivering form his face showed marks of the punishment that ho had inflicted. Corbett went down to defeat that was regretted by a vast majority of the men who Ailed the hall. The money wa# against him, but he had a wealth of sympathy. It wa# probably his natural heritage as the short coder, but after tire battle had begun he won more support by his display of speed and skill. Jeffrie# won with his s.length, both thai strength that lies in the power of massive muscle and that strength which is the essence of vitality. He made the pace for most of the distance and at the end was still strong and effective. At first glance the battle may seem to detract a trifle from his reputation, for it showed that a fast man can reach hint and get away without a return. It is improbable that there was ever a more orderly affair under the Horton law. There was little betting on the outcome of the battle. There had been so much delay and interference in the earlier stages of the negotiation# for the fight, and so much doubt created by WASHINGTON.May U-#*n*tor Lodg* made a short speech In the senate today which wa# a defiant challenge to Germany end all the rest of th* world, hut Germany especially, to respect th* Monroe dost fin*. It was In the same Un# as Sac Root’# speech, deliver*d at th* Grant memorial ansoetation banquet, but while, Mr Root talked In general term# about th* probability of our having to fight to maintain the Monro® doctrine, Mr Lodge wa* •peciflc. He mad* it clear that it wa* Germany we might have to fight, that It was Germany who was attempting to exert political Influence over Bra*!!, and at th# close of hi# speech Germany’* name wa# openly mentioned. Mr Lodge said: “I have no desire. Mr President, to detain the senate on this question of armor more than a very few moments. I certainly shall not attempt to enter into the question of the merits of the different kinds of armor which ha# been so ably discussed by the senators from New' Hampshire and South Carolina, who are experts on that subject. “Nor do I think it is necessary to discuss the point as to whether we should have any ship# at all because armor has been shown to be penetrable. “It seems to me that that Is an argument which goes altogether too far, and bears with It Its own refutation. Carried out to Its full extent it would amount to saying that we should not have ships because they sometimes sink. or fortifications because they can be knocked down. “Long before the day* of armored ships we were told on high authority that 'ships are but boards, sailors but men. They be land rats and water rats, land thieve# and water thieves, I mean pirate*, and, the perils of wind, rocks and waters.’ “Yet although these things were all true, at the period.
