LONDON, March iff.—Military oh- #.>rvers here, and even those in close af­ filiation with the war office, are con­ siderably confused as to -what Is being done for the succor pf Mafeking. Some 5,000 or 6,000 men are engaged w'lth Lord Methuen at Warrenton and Four­ teen Streams and now another column is about leut^lng Kimberley, if it has not already started, for Grlquatown, 106 miles westward. Its ostensible pur­ pose Is to drive out the Boers. T^e force is described as “a strong one,” and the expedition as “likely to atjtract much attention.” General Freijch Is reported from Bloemfontein Sunday as returning from Thaba Nchu wIth,out apparently having headed off Com­ mandant Oliver with his 15 guns and miles of baggage.

Lord Roberts has wired to the war office as follows: \BLOEMFONTEIN Mar. 26.—Capt. Sloane Stanley, of the Sixteenth Lan­ cers, was slightly wounded In an affair of the outposts, north of the Modder river on March 25.” This bare statement is all that comes from the commandeMn-chief. A Times’ Bloemfontein dispatch, dated March 26, amplified Lord Roberts’ dis­ patch as follows: “A cavalry reconnolssance was made yesterday towards Brandlort. The Sixteentli Lancers, by skirmishing, drew the Boers from their position Into the open, when the Ninth Lancers attempted to outflank the enemy, while they were engaged from the front by a dismounted section of the lancers. Our casualties are reported to have been’few.” A Maseru, Basutoland, dispatch, dat­ ed March 26, says: “The Basutoland government Is busy collecting natives to be employed at Bloemfontein repairing and laying railroads. The natives report that the Free Staters on the bordei-s of Basuto­ land refused to go to Kroonstad and are staying on their farms, a s it is now the ploughing season, and they are in­ clined to keep their land and submit rather than give it up and fight.” Boer reports from Natal show that no developments of importance have occurred there up to March 23. Advices to-day from Cape Town say: “Rains are now general throughout South Africa and rivers which have been dry for years are being flooded. Many camps have been transformed into swamps and this will still more mili­ tate against an immediate British ad­ vance. The sickness among the Boer prisoners on the transports is increas­ ing. Three deaths occurred on March 26. Typhoid alone claims 100 victims among the prisoners and the popula­ tion of Slmonstown fear an epidemic.” SERIOUS SITUATION IN CHINA.

FRANKFORT, 'Mar. 27.—After a consultation by the attorneys for the defense in the hearing of the Republi­ can secretary of state,. Caleb' Powers, on a ‘Charge of being implicated in the conspiracy to assassinate Goebel, ex- Governor Brown, for the defense, an­ nounced that no testimony would be introduced for the defense and would waive furflier examination. A pardon issued to Powers by Governor Taylor was tendered by Mr. Brown, as a bar to the prosecution,' and he asked that the defendant be dismissed. Colonel Campbell said the commonwealth de­ nied Gov. Taylor's right to issue the pardon, Mr. Brown then moved that the prisoner be dismissed upon the ev­ idence. The motion was overruled.- Bail was asked for. Judge Moore said: “It is not my belief that Powers fired the shot that killed Gov. Goebel, but from the evidence it is my opinion he was connected with the conspiracy to kill him. I shall, therefore, order that the prisoner be held over, without bail, to the Franklin county grand jury so that the case may he further investi- When the Powers case was disposed of, the judge asked if the common­ wealth was ready to take up the other cases, that of Captain John Davis or ■William H. Culton, charged with be­ ing accessories to the assassination. Upon the request of the county attor­ ney, both cases were postponed until this afternoon.

ATTEMPTED TO ASSAULT A WHITE WOMAN-fMOB ATTACKED TfllE JAIL AND AFTER A SHARP F-IGiHT WITH THE SHERIFF, SE­ CURED THE PRISONER-TWO MEMBERS OF THE MOlB WOUND­ ED—NEGRO HANGED TWICE. BELAIR, Md., Mar. 27.—Lewis Har­ ris, colored, who early Sunday morning attempted assault upon Miss Annie McAlvaine, at her home near Befair, was lynched at an early hour to-day by a mob. From the time Harris was dragged from the dell until he was strung up, he Is said to have spoken hut one sentence. That was: “If I did it, men, I was drunk when I did it.” Harris was taken froii^ the jail last night after a brief struggle between the sheriff and tihe m-ob, in whidh two men were slightly woun'ded. It 'had hisen expected .an attempt would be made to hang Harris yesterdiay when he was brought up for a hearing, t a t ‘this was positpo-jied until tOrday, and everything seemed so quiet last might that the sus­ picions of the sheriff were a'llay-ed. Shortly before midnight it was an­ nounced that the mob was on the way from Aberdeen, a lUisighboring village, and a general movem'snt toward ithe jail took place. Presently about twien- ty men appeared, so^me of -wihom were masked, and the attack upon the jail began. A fusllade of shots was ex­ changed 'betwieen the sheriff, his depu­ ties and the -mob, resulting in. the wounding of Robert L, Bull of this place, and one of the crowd from Aber­ deen, Whose'- name was not learned. Nieithea* W‘ 0 und is serious. The jail door was finally forced and Harris ta­ ken out. While in the hands of the mob he explained, “If I did it, men, I was drunk and didn’t Icnow what I was about, I hav^ no recollection of It.” The -mob hustl-ed -him to a neighbor­ ing doory-ard In which stood a Large poplar tree. As H-arris was hoisted from the ground, the ilimb upon which the unfortunate wretch was suspended snapped Short and Harris fell -to ithe gr-ound. He was lifted again, moanlr^ and groaning, but -was quickly hanged the second time, this tim» effectively. Sever-al shots were fired into the body and the corpse w-as left hanging until this morning, when it was taken down.' Miss Mcllvaine, Harris' victim, was aif unmarried woman, 54 years ola.who lives -alone near the railway station. She was called to. her door a t naldnight Saturday and attacked by a negro, whom she afterward Identified as Har­ ris. The Indignation was more intense because it was the second crime of this kind Vhlch had been committed within a month, Wm. Black, a negro,^ being now confinied In the iBa'ltimore jail, awaiting trial for assault upon Jessie Bi'adford, a young woman residing at Aberdeen. It is asserted -that iMlss Mc- Ilv-aine, Harris’ victim, was with the mob' when, the jail was attacked last night, but this cannot he iConfirmea,aEd it is certain she was not present at the hanging.
