THE TRANSVAAL SITUATION AS
SUMES SERIOUS ASPECT.
Srttlshera Hava An Army of 30,OOC
Man Ready to Do Buelnaaaat
London, June 13. When the secretary
f state for the colonies, Mr. Chamber
lain, in the house of common or
Thursday, summed up the result of th
Bloomfonteln conference by declaring
that a "new situation has been created'
he used a pregnant phrase, open ap
parently to a variety of interpretations,
but In reality only open to one.
The politicians who have closely fol
lowed the affairs of the Transvaal and
Mr. Chamberlain's attitude with respect
to them are fully satisfied that the
colony secretary plainly meant to de-
Clare that by the means of the open
negotiations, in which the British high
commissioner, Sir Alfred Milner, had
exhausted every diplomatic resource to
effect a reasonable settlement of the
matters in dispute, it had been proved
definitely that President Kruger was
irreconcilable and that all hope of an
arrangement by a suggestion of diplo
matic pressure was henceforth vain.
The British are especially exasper
ated, because they feel they have been
trifled with, and the question on every
body's lips is "what next?"
Mr... Chamberlain is not the man to be
distorted from his course. He has pub
licly and deliberately espoused the
cause of the Ultlanders, and his next
step will be a demand. Then there
will be energetic action to support the
It is regarded as certain that this
contingency has been fully foreseen for
months past. Both troops and large
Quantities of munitions of wax have
gone to South Africa by every steamer.
The troops have been described as re-
liefs, but those they were supposed to
relieve have remained in South Africa.
A steamer which sailed in May took
600 of these reliefs, and passengers who
bad previously secured accommodation
for the officers and men.
In Natal, notably at Lady Smith, a
large force has been assembled, fully
equipped and ready to march at a
moment's notice. Hundreds of mules
from South Africa and Cypress are on
the spot. The storehouses are full of
forage and the magazines are packed
It is estimated that the Transvaal
could muster a fighting force of from
1,000 to 18,000 men, while the British
troops there already number 11,000 men,
commanded by the veteran Major' Gen
eral Sir William Francis Butler, who
pas been in command of the troops of
South Africa since 1883. His wife was
Elizabeth Thompson, the well known
artist. He served in Canada In 1870,
in Ashantl in 1874, during the Zulu
war, 1878-9; in Egypt, 1882 and 1884-85,
and commanded the British troop at
Alexandria from 1890 to 1893.
In addition, the British have a large
Oody of splendidly mounted riflemen
and mounted police available, so if hos
tilities break out events will move
While the country generally is back- '
ing Mr. Chamberlain, many well-in-
formed people assert that, urged by the
potent social Influences of the British
Chartered South Africa company, he is
ourrying the country to disaster. They

retreat, but that the Transvaal forces,
familiar with every inch of the country,

His artillery is known to be much
luperlor to the British artillery, and
signs are not wanting to show that the
Boers have more than the moral sup

UITLANDERS' MASS MEETING.
. Johannesburg, June 10. At the mass
jneeting of Ultlanders held here today
for the purpose of confirming and sup
porting the proposals of Sir Alfred
Milner, the British high commissioner,
a resolution was adopted, declaring
that no settlement will be satisfactory
which does not provide for the recogni
tion of equal political rights for all.
President Kruger"s proposals were
considered wholly Inadequate to satisfy
the just demand of the unenfranchised,
while Sir Alfred Mllner's were indorsed
as the Irreducible minimum acceptable.
The meeting was orderly and was at
tended by 6,000 Ultlanders.
The government Issued a notice, ad
vising the enfranchised burghers to al
low the meeting to proceed without dis
turbance. APPROVE KRUGER' B PROPOSALS.
Pretoria, Transvaal Republic, June 13.
After deliberation in secret for all the
morning, the Volksraad yesterday after
noon approved President Kruger's fran
chise proposals and instructed the gov
ernment to draw them up In the form
of a law, which will be submitted to
The Volksraad yesterday also passed
a resolution of regret that the British
high commissioner had not accepted

the Volksraad "considers reasonable In
the highest degree."

BUFFALO STRIKE ON AO AIM.
Freight Handlers Go Out and Ann
Buffalo, N. Y., June 14. The striking
freight handler and housemen en the
Erie docks were joined Saturday by the
housemen and freight handlers em
ployed on the Lackawanna docks. There
are now about 300 men out and there is
a possibility that all other housemen
and freight handlers along the docks
will be called out. There Is in addition
an effort being made to bring about
the active co-operation of the gln
shovelers and the coal heavers and ore
A telegram was sent to President
CKeefe of the International Longshore
men's association, asking him to come
to Buffalo at once and assist in the set
tlement of the existing troubles. Pres
ident MeMahon of the Grain Shovelers
union stated that if Mr. Keefe favored
the sympathetic strike the grain shovel
ers would go out. President Joyce of
the freight handlers' union said that
by Monday night there would not be a
wheel turning on the docks.
A conference was held at the Elliott
club, at which were present represent
atives of the Erie. New York Central,
Lehigh Valley, Lackawanna and Great
Northern companies. The dock situa
tion was gone over and it was agreed
that demands of the housemen for an
increase of wages should not be acceded
to. Men to take the places of the
strikers would be secured as rapidly
as possible if the men do not return to
work on Monday.
NEW CUP DEFENDER AFLOAT
Sloop Columbia Glides Into the
Waves at Bristol.
Bristol, R. I., June 13. While twice
before in Its history this little town
has felt the thrill accompanying the
launching of an American cup defend
er, the lowering into the water of the
beautiful sloop Columbia was never
theless an event of great importance
to Bristol, as well as to the entire
An hour before the launching Satur
day morning the big door that for
weeks had screened the back end of
the shed was taken down and for the
first time the world had a chance to see
the shining underbody of the boat In
side the shed, assembled under the bow
of the boat, was the christening party,
with Mrs. Iselin as the central figure;
while on deck were twenty of the Co
lumbia's crew, with one or two officers
and Nat Herreshoff.
At 8:05 Mr. Herreshoff gave the sig
nal and the work of lowering the boat
into the water began. It took about
ten minutes to get it started and at 8:14
It was seen to move. There was con
siderable creaking at first and ene or
two short stops, but at 8:19 it began to
slide steadily and then It was that Mrs.
Iselin dashed the bottle of cham
pagne against its bow and said: "I
christen thee Columbia." The launch
ing was successfully concluded.

TWO OFFICERS KILLED AND 2
Forty Par Cant of the Amerlcar
Forces Absolutely Exhausted
By Excosslva Heat.
Manila, June 13. General Lawton'i
forces have occupied Paranaque. The
rebels had escaped to the north during
the night. Only amigos were found in
Manila, June 13. At daybreak today
a force of 4,500 men under Generals
Lawton, Wheaton and Ovenshine ad
vanced from San Pedro Macatl, sweep
ing the country between the Bay of
Manila and Bay Lake south of Manila.
By noon the country had been cleared
almost to Paranaque.
The Americans lost two officers killed
and twenty-one soldiers wounded.
The rebels resisted desperately at the
stronger of their positions, and left fifty
dead In the trenches. Many more
wounded were left behind by the rebels
In their retreat
The heat during the day was over
powering and there were many pros
trations of American soldiers from that
General Lawton'i force consisted of
two battalions each of the Twenty-first
and Ninth infantry, six companies of
the Colorado volunteers and a detach
ment of artillery. The Nevada cavalry
was under General Wheaton and the
Thirteenth and Fourteenth lnfantry.Lhe
Fourth cavalry and a detachment of
ight artillery were under General Oven
shine. It was scarcely dawn when the
troops, in a long, silent procession,
wound up the hillside behind the
American trenches and formed a
skirmish line. Concealed In the Jungle,
the advance rebel outposts fired a few
shots before being seen.
The opposing forces occupied two
ranges of crescent shaped hills.
The artillery, the Colorado infantry
and the Nevada cavalry swung around
the hill top of the left and opened the
battle at 6:30. The rebels made no re
sponse from the hills and the Colorado
men cautiously advanced through the
thick grass until they were confronted
by a trench, from which a few weak
volleys were fired. A spirited response
followed and a charge Into the trench
found It to be deserted.
In the meantime a part of the Thir
teenth and Fourteenth regiments
formed In skirmish line, extending a
mile to the right and supported by the
rest of the regiments, swept down the
valley and up the hillside toward an,
other trench. Approaching through the
morass seriously hampered the Four
teenth and the rebels taking advantage
of this, poured a galling fire upon
them for thirty minutes. The Four
teenth was twice compelled to with
draw for the purpose of finding a safe
crossing In the swamp. Finally, the
trench was enfiladed on both flanks.
The rebels fled to the woods and sus
tained severe loss.
General Lawton then pushed his en
tire command south, through the cen
ter of the isthmus until a few miles
south of Paranaque, when he swung
around and baited on account of the
During the march the Americans were
prostrated on all sides owing to lack

troops were exhausted.

Mr. Dickinson said that he had but
few facts to give In connection wltB
the robbery or the pursuit that had not
already been printed in the dispatches
from Wyoming. He said that, though
Mall Agent Dettrlck was confident he
saw five men outlined against the sky
ascending the bluff Just after the hold
up, and although Engineer Jones was
confident he saw six, it is believed,
after consideration, that there were
only three robbers. This Is chiefly be
cause the trail of three horses only was
found. Still, Mr. Dickinson thinks
there might have been five or six of the
bandits and that two or three might
have made their way along the track
without leaving any trail.
When the fight occurred in which
Sheriff Hazen was fatally wounded,
the robbers fired with smokeless pow
der from a covert protected by grease-
wood on the side of a washout. This
was after a day's chase, generally
northward from a point nix miles west
jt Casper, and Just after the purBuers
had found three hobbled horses In the
washout or gulch. And this was Mon
day morning. Finding the horses, the
pursuers supposed that the robbers were
in the vicinity, and, happening to ad
vance in a particular direction, they
were fired on. The wounding of the
heriff temporarily disconcerted the
(arty, and the robbers, as it afterward
tppeared, ran down the gulch to a
;reek, waded up the creek on foot for
3ve or six miles and then took across

two sessions to the consideration of
