THE dailies of last Friday morning
devoted a column or two to the details I
of the will of the late Cornelius Van- J

son Albert about a hundred million and
his other children seven and a half mil

one and a half millions for not marrying

at work putting np the new lead wrrks,

railroad trestle, and two oil wells drill

there is more work going on in Butler
at present than at any other time in the
town's history. Butler's dullest days
are over. \Vith gas, waterand railr- ad
facilities unexcelled by any other town
within a hundred miles, prosperity is
sure. Four years ago onr advant
ages were practically the same, but
business was at a standstill and Butler s
business death was predicted on all
sides. Is there anj*tliing in this to in
fluence the local electors in casting
their ballots next Tuesday.November 7?
Four years ago under a Democratic ad
ministration our town was dead. To
day under a Republican administration,
and hampered with a war at that,
everybody is busy here,as in every other
part of the country. Vote for a con
tinuation of good times, which means
the straight Republican ticket
LET every Republican do his share—

WE think we have some politics in
Pennsylvania, but ours is a small dose
| compared to what the people of Ohio
The reason is in our tremendous Re
publican majority, while Ohio is liable
to go either way, and the returns from
| that State will probably be scrutinized
! by the Nation closer than those of any
! other state in the Union. .Judge Nash
is the Republican candidate for Govern
or, and John li. McLean the Democrat
ic: while Mayor Jones of Toledo be,-ids
an independent ticket.
The canvass has been conducted on
National issues, and the result will
have an influence on the National nom
inations, next year.
Next after Ohio the most interesting
fight is in Kentucky where the Demo
crats are trying to get rid of their state
boss, ft Pennsylvania dutchman named
Goebel, who has been ruling their par

"I am a radical Republican and so
long as my party adheres to its funda
mental principles I shall stand stead
fastly by it at the polls when ever their
supremacy in the State or the Nation is
at stake." I regard this as a conscien
tious duty; for a false ballot in such a
case is an insult upon the integrity of
popular government. Therefore,l have
never voted for any but Republican-;

Till. WAR IN AFRICA.
On Thursday Gen. Symona of the
British Anny, who was shot in the 1
stomach at the battle of Ulencoe diet! at
Dundee, a prisoner of the Boers, whose
General sent word of his death to the
Gen. Symons' tight at Gleneoe was
not anything like the decisive victor)' at
first alleged, and Gen. Yule would in
all probability have been annihilated or
have met with the same fate as the cap- ,
inred Hussars if he had not retreated,
lien White's "artillery duel ' at Riet
fonlein was a very severe engagement. '
in which the rifle did great execution .
and in which success was only achieved i
at a distressing cost. The bombard 1
ment of Mafeking had commenced, with 1
unknown result, and the Boers had got 1
their Hussar prisoners safely to Pretoria. 1
The campaign is being pushed by the 1
Boers so strenuously and on such sound i
strategical lines that the situation of '
the British gave them cause for deep
anxiety. It was difficult to see how the
concentrated force at Ladvsmith will be
able to take the aggressive immediately.
Apart from the fatigue, regiments like
the Gordon Highlanders and Royal Ri
fles have been practically without offi
cers since the tights, and a hundred and
thirty-five additional officers have been
ordered to leave England as speedily as
possible. Orders were issued for an ad
ditional 5,000 troops to sail for South
Africa between November 4and Novem
A dispatch sent from Glencoe camp on
the night of the battle in that vicinity
admits that few Boer dead ami wound- j
ed were found on the field, and explains |
this by saying: "Throughout the fight j
the Boers, in accordance with their j
custom, buried their dead and car
ried off their wounded immediately af
ter they fell, those left representing on
ly the casualties during the last mo
ments of the fighting. Even their dis
abled cannon had been removed, al-'
though broken pieces of them could be j
seen lying about."
The official announcement of the join- j
ing of Gen. White and Gen. Yule came ,
as a great relief, in view of the fact that j
only the incapacity of the intelligence |
department ot the Boers saved Gen.
Yule's column from a great disaster.
On Friday night Dundee was full Df
alarms. Heavy firing was heard at t
o'clock and again at 4. A severe thun
derstorm soon aftc stopped the Boer
cannonade. Satnrday-passedin momen
tary expectation of an attack. The
British finally evacuated, taking all
that they could, but leaving plenty be
hind for the Boers to loot.
Gen. Yule's column had a very ex
hausting inarch, chiefly by night, for
fear of Boer surprises. The heavy rains
and mist hampered the march, but were
the means of saving Gen. Yule from
molestation. It took the column '-'t
hours to cover the last 16 miles.
The Boers say that Gen. Kock during
the battle read "his Bible and prayed for
victory. His brother two sons and a
nephew were all wounded and taken
prisoners. Col. Schiel. of the German
corps, and Commandant Pretorius were
severely wounded:,- Many prominent
Boers are not yet accounted for, Philip
Kceh says the Boe'rs suffered most from
"soldiers in little clothes, half men and
women' meaning the Gordon Highland
ers, and in the charge of the Fifth Lan
cers. Col. Schiel assured a correspond
ent that nothing could stand against
the accuracy of the British field guns,
which repeatedly drove the Transvaal
gunners from their embrasures. The
British infantry fire was also, he said, a
complete surprise to the Boers, who
were confident of their ability to master
any infantry attack.
On Friday hard fighting was reported
near Kiinberely; the Boers had the town
surrounded, and were anxious to cap
ture Cecil Rhodes whom they considei
lure rtuoues WIJIHII i ut'y cousiut-i
their worst enemy.
By Sunday the Boers had Ladysmith
partly surrounded and were mounting
on the neighboring hills. The
Boer forces were reported at 17,000 and
the English at 12,000.
On Monday the English made a sortie
from Ladysmith and attempted to dis
lodge the Boers lroni their position, but
appear to have been driven back, with
the loss of a battery. A report by way
of Holland said the whole British r.rmv
i j ....jct-u, iveintoicements were
being hurried to Gen. White at Lady
A sortie from Mafekiug, on the west
border, was also reported.
On Monday, Gen. White, sent two
regiments to take position on the hills
to the left to Ladysmith,the Boers drew
them on by retreating, and then closed
in on them and killed or captured them
all. Nineteen officers were killed and
forty-two made prisoners, and about
2000 men were taken, besides a raoun
tain battel v.
The disaster was reported Tuesday
afternoon and threw London into dis
may, and in Gloucestershire and the
North of Ireland, where the captured
regiments were recruited, the blackest
gloom prevails, families awaiting with
beating hearts the names of the killed
and wounded, which are fully expected
to reach a high figure. Many homes
are already in mourning in consequence
of the losses sustained by those regi
ments in previous engagements.
Gen. White assumed all blame for
the disaster. The Boers reoccnpied the
hills around Ladysmith and a battle
was reported to be in progress.Tuesday.
