LONDON, jOctober 21. -The earliest
dispatch regarding yesterday's battle
conveyedi the impression that the
whole .Affair was over in a couple of
hours; the British artillery silencing
theBoer guns and iafantry and then
imply charging right over the hill.
According? to tne latest aa vices, uow-
ever, the battle lasted eight hours and
nearly seven hours elapsed before the
last Boer gun was put out of action.
The Irish Fusileera and the King's
Rifles meanwhile had advanced to tne
assault and were shooting their way
the hill, driving the Boers bacfc
from shelter to shelter, until the final
rush of the British carried them to
It was a bright clear morning, whicn

A curious fact was that several times
lull occurred in the. firing on botn
sides, the British infantry apparently

climb and the Boers also holding back
British Artillery's Fine Work.
The maerhificent practice of the
British guns was an immense help and
the success of the assault was greatly
due thereto. An enormous quantity
of ammunition was expended.
Once the British bayonets showed on
top of the kopje, the Boers retreated,
and when on descending the other
side they found a British battery and
British cavalry outflanking them, the
retreat became a rout, xne tsriusn
guns followed, and from time to time
threw shells among the flying foe.
The latter did not wait it'o try conclu
sions with the hussars and mounted
infantry, who apparently seldom got
near enough to deliver effective
volleys. The pursuit was continued
until dusk, when the Boers were com
pletely demoralized. A heavy rain

A Basuto Movement.
London, October 21. The para -
mount chief of the Basutos, accord
ing to a dispatch from Cape Town, has
asked permission to assemble the other
Basuto chiefs, with a view of inviting
them to pledge loyalty to the Queen.
This is assumed to be a forerunner of
a Basuto movement and the Orange
Free State burghers near the Basuto
border are said to be in a state of con
sternation, fearing that at any mo
ment the Basutos, despite imperial
instructions to the contrary, will take
the field and invade the Free State.

'leae-rer the wires being so overloaded
with official dispatches that others filter
through in the slowest possible man
ner. The latest advices from Cape Town
show that all was well at Kimberley
on Thursday. Although the usual
water supply of the town was cut off,
there was ample water for the needs
of the town. -
The police garrisons of Fourteen
Streams and Trungs have arrived at
Kimberly. Everything tends to con
firm the statement that Colonel Baden
Powell temporarily worsted the Boers
at Maf eking, and it appears true that
upwards of three hundred wounded
Boers have arrived at Johannesburg.
The Boers, however, appear to have re
occupied the secene of the fighting, as
an attempt to recover the bodies of the
British failed, owing, it is alleged, to
the Boers refusing to recognize the
Red Cross flag. .
The news from Glencoe aroused im
mense enthusiasm among the British
resident of Cape Colony, and this is
rapidly spreading to Basutoland, where
it is feared it will further inflame the
desire of the r. a lives to participate in
the operations against the Boers.

RAISING COTTON RATES.
Central of Georgia Pots Up Freights to
North and Sooth Carolina Mills.
By Telegraph to the Horning Star.
Atlanta, Ga., October 21. A
special to the Constitution? from
Dawson, Ga., says:
f The Central of Georgia Railway to
day, without notice, raised the cotton
rates to North Carolina and South
Carolina mills from 51 cents to 75
cents a hundred pounds, making an
inciease of $1.10 on every bale of
cotton shipped to these markets from
this point. It is claimed that the
purpose of this actian was to
make the rate to the Carolina mar
kets virtually prohibitory, throw
ing all of the cotton from this sec
tion which has heretofore been pur
ohased by the Carolina cotton mills at
better prices to Savannah for export
This would be considerable loss to the
farmers as well as business men of
Dawson, and indignation at the action
ot tLe railroad is general. The raise
is in direct violation of the recent or
der of the Insterstate Commerce Com
mission equalizing Dawson freights
with those of Albany, Americus and

that body for redress.
