The Natives in the Peshawar and Kohat districts are displaying a general disinclination to obey the fighting orders of the tnollahs.
The northern column of the British field force, which is advancing against the Mohmands, crossed the Panjakora River without opposition on the part of the tribesmen. Several - tribes en route are negotiating for peace terms. Dissension among the Afridis is re ported to be increasing. Reports from Hongu state that the tribesmen have petitioned to have their country included in British territory. The trial is proceeding at Bombay of Bal Gangadhar Tijak, editor of the Native paper ‘Kesari.’
