ei:gla;d'sulti:.iatu:.i TILLS THB TRANSVAAL THAT IT IS WAR OR RETREAT. Situation Has Now Reached Crltl loal Stage and May Reault In Hoatllltlaa at Any Tisne. toadon, Aug. IS. It l but a short top from the momentous reference to ithe Transvaal in the queen's speech at ths prorogation of parliament and tbe final statement In the bouse of com mons of the secretary of state for the colonies, Joseph Chamberlain, the last governmental utterance of the session, to a declaration of war, and It cannot now be long before the Issue Is known. When a minister speaking through the mouth of the sovereign declares the po sition of tbe queen's subjects In the South African republic "Is Inconsistent With the promise of equal treatment whereon my grant of Internal independ ence to that republic was founded and the unrest caused thereby Is a con stant source of danger to the peace and prosperity of my dominions In South Africa," It needs no soothsayers to ex plain that ministers therein explicitly declared that the Transvaal must sub pilt to the demands made In the queen't name or accept the consequences. It Is Impossible to suggest the suggestion of Michael Davltt and T. P. O'Connor, rlsh nationalist members of parliament and others, that the ministers are mere ly conducting a great game of blu, and t may be taken for granted that fall ing the acquiescence of President Kru ger to the British demands, they meant to compel acquiescence at the point of the sword. ASK US TO SYMPATHIZE. A high official of the colonial office, speaking to a representative of the As sociated Press, said: "8urely the Americans realize that their sympathies and Interests are with Great Britain over the Boer question. There are large numbers of American outlanders, and It Is to their benefit as well as to BrltlBhers that these reforms be carried out. The course of Mr. John Hayes Hammond, the American engi neer who was Imprisoned In the Trans vaal, ought to bring the situation home to the Americans. "We fully understand the underlying sympathy of the United States for all republics, but the protection of Inter ests, whether British or , American, ought to have nothing to do with the republic principle. . The Irish element In parliament, some persons say, continues its best efforts to embarrass the government negotia tions with regard to the Transvaal. The United Irish league, at a meeting held In South Mayo this week, after a speech by Mr. Michael Davltt, passed resolutions of sympathy with the Transvaal "In Its courageous opposition to the dishonest attack of Rand cap italists and their allies In the Brtlsh ministry." SEEKING A COLONIAL. POLICY. The correspondent hers of the Associ ated Press learns that the state departi ment at Washington has been making Inquiries of the British colonial office, regarding the government of the Brit ish colonies In the east, with the sup posed view of the possible adoption of Blrtlsh methods In the Philippines. The American pollry Is being watched inter estedly by the British authorities. An official of the colonial office expressed the belief that the United States will have to establish Its civil service be fore Jt can obtain any degree of effi ciency1 la tbe Philippines. PORT ARECIBO DESTROYED. San Juan de Porto Rico. According ,to an official report received here the port of Areclbo was destroyed during the recent severe storm, the place be ing Inundated by water from the ocean and the river. Two hundred bodies are in the morgue there and hundreds of persons are missing. A number of 'American citizens, who lived on plan tations In the suburbs, were drowned. The commanding oflicer of the district has ordered that the bodies of the vic tims of the disaster shall be burled where they are found. San Juan has been applied to for supplies. According to the lattrst reports from Yabueoa eighty bodies were burled on "Wednesday, while the remains of 200 victims have not been recovered. The church Is the only building left standing. It l rumored that a num ber of American soldiers were killed at Mayaguez. ROBBERY ON STEAMER. Victoria. B. C, Aug. 15. The Mlo wera brought from Sydney news of a robbery resembling In many particu lars that which occurred on the steam phlp Alameda, $20,000 being stolen from the Koenlgen Regents. The steamer arrived at butnvlrt on the 24th of last month from Holland, and' at once re jtorted that a box containing 4.000 In gold for the Java bank had been sto len. The box with the gold waa put on board at Southampton and was depos ited in the strong room, the key of which Is In the custody of the captain and Is kept In a cht-Bt. m,o rr.iiiuirv wnm an well carried out ,that It was not discovered untl4 Just j Sifter the steamer lerl uenoa. i ne in vestigation that followed brought little more to light than suspicions against against the crew.

The dead bodies of Wil liam Colbath, aged 30, and Harry Qumby, aged 18, of Exeter, were found In Stetson Pond with their faces badly battered. They and Arthur Sargent of Stetson went fishing there on Friday. Sorgent returned today and repbrted that Ms associates had been drowned. Foul play waa suspected and a search ing party was Immediately organised and the bodies were found near where Sargent had indicated. Mrs. Chaa Cole of Aurora. Ind., was attracted by a peculiar hissing noise and rapping In her bedrom. On In vestigating she beheld a large black snake swinging from the top of the dresser by Its tall and viciously fight tng its reflection In the mirror. Mrs. Cola called for her husband to come and kill the reptile, but when h came he could not strike at the swaying ser pent, that continued the combat with the shadow In the glass, unmindful of his presence, for fear of shattering the costly mirror. He then procured a long pole and succeeded In disengaging Its colls from the mirror frame and hurling It out of the open window thro' which It evidently entered, ine iau , to the ground from the second-story room stunned but did not kill the snake and when Mr. Cols descended tha stairs , end reached tha yard to accomplish Its , death.

Preparations for the fare well to soldier life In a way that will be remembered as Its stirring events in the Held are now filling tbe minds of the First Nebraska boys. After the three weeks' rest here with but little to do save the making of records, the sol diers are In a mood for "blow outs" ai heroic as their battles. ' It Is now quite sure that the com pany records will be about all finished by the coming Tuesday, thus releasing captains and sergeants from their cler ical work, wfth the result that some thing will probably happen when they get their heads together. Company I of Bennett has taken the Initiative In voting to have a swell fare well banquet the coming week. First Sergeant Hammond, Corporal McCar thy and Privates Andrews and and Dean have been elected the committee on arrangements. It Is planned to go to a big down town hotel or restaurant and enjoy a mend that will Include everything from "slumgulllon" to humming birds' ton guea Every man from captain Cos grove down to the Z's among the pri vates must make a speech. Several other companies are taking up demonstrations of one kind or another. In explanation of the extravagance In which the companies are making plans, It may be stated that every company has on hand what Is known as a "com pany fund," which by law must be spent ony for commissary supplies, or company property, and any money or property left on hand upon the dlsband ment of a company reverts to the gov ernment. So the men regard It as a religious duty to see that nothing Is left but pleasant memories of the company funds on the last day. Company L has a serial program of Jolly events, and will go on an excur sion to Mount Tamalpals one day this week. This will be an all-day's outing to the aristocratic resort across the bay. Peddlers and canvassers make every hour of daylight active In camp. They are of both sexes, have an abundance of gall and try to sell everything within the catalogue of a department rtore. A fat old Chinaman with a catarrh cure was the rear guard of the Invading army today. One company has made this procla mation to the hungry horde: "No gold bricks bought here. Apply to the gov. ernment." Another has this sarcastic request: "All solicitors please leave business cards." MEMBER OF FIRST DIES. Leavenworth, Kan., Aug. 15.

CROWD CHEER OilEYFUS 8TIRRINQ SCENES AT THE TRIAL OF FRANCE'S PRISONER- Former Minister oi War Is Jssrsd and Hooted by Excltabla Frsnohman. Rennes, Aug. 16. M. Casimlr-Perier gave to the court martial a history of the Dreyfus case. He spoke in an emphatic manner, with strong emotion, and often In a strong tone of Indigna tion. He appeared to greater advan tage then that I ever remember to have seen him before. M. Casimlr-Perier declared that he would not leave the court until the lm. putatlons against him were cleared up. His eyes were somewhat staring and not all observant or expressive of his feelings, unless of anger, but he looks like a man who had a grandfather who has filled high situations and who stands uncommonly well with his banker. Refinement and delicacy are wanting. He Is not a high-born gen tleman, but the son and grandson of Ifre-emlnently successful bourgeolsse of whom he Is so proud. His testimony was a little rude in answering the formal questions as to his name, age and profession. When the president of the court said: "Tell what you know of the Dreyfus affair," M. Casimlr-Perier seemed unable to speak. As a matter of fact the blood rushes to his heart whenever he Is deep ly moved, paralyzing for a short time the organs of Bpeech. General Mercler was allowed to sit while giving his deposition, If long winded, flat explanations and remarks can be called a deposition. He Is of quite another type from M. Casimlr Perier. His full dress uniform failed to make him look soldierly. He has the carriage and countenance of a trickster. Esterhazy Is like a brigand. Mercler is like a dishonest grocer who adulterates his wares. His eyes ars mere slits surrounded with puffy flesh. They peer suspiciously and reveal noth ing that Is going on behind them. The Instinct of self-preservation and the small, mean passions that minister to It are alone expressed In his withered countenance. He spoke for hours in a scarcely audible voice. There was hard ly anything in his deposition beyond the one capital admission that he sent secret documents to Colonel Maurel with a not strict order, but an Implied order, to show them to the other Judges of the 1894 court martial. Apart from this admission his deposition, Ilka that of General Roget before the court of cassation, was full of Innuendo, of perhapses and "it Is not impossible," or "it may be," and such like verbal ambiguities. TESTIMONY CARRIES NO WEIGHT. Falling to demonstrate the guilt of Dreyfus, General Murder turned toward the prisoner at the conclusion of the dullest speech I ever heard and with Pecksnllllan softness, he, appearing to beat time on his knee as he spoke, said: "If I had the slightest doubt of the Justice of the 1S94 sentence, I would now say to the prisoner, 'Captain, I have wronged you.' " Dreyfus for the first time burst the bonds of his strict self-control. The blood rushed Into his face, and, start ing to his feet, he cried: "But that is what you ought to say." This brought down the house and the bar, the press and the public applauded. Dreyfus Btood up while the "bravos" were repeated, quivering with anger. Then the cowed look returned and he cut, uunu laiuij ill inc a i ua' j position he thinks respectful to the court. General Mercler's deposition was In such contrast to the graphic, powerful story of M. Caalmlr-1'erler, which had throughout the ring of truth, that the general was hooted as he left the stand. He and M. Casimlr-Perier will be con fronted on Monday. I pity him. Think of a sorry, spavined horse, only good for the knacker, set to fight a Hon. Monday's proceedings will be sensa tional; today's were thrilling, a sign that the tide Is on the turn. The olllcers who Judge Dreyfus may have, for decency's sake, to acquit him, j but they will do so reluctantly and with hearts filled with gall. They are not to be concerted by the evidence, but it may, and I believe will, over bear them. JAMAICA TREATY A SECRET. Los Angep-g, Cal. The chamber of commerce here has received acommun. icatlon from John A. Kasson, one of the commissioners appointed to arrange a reciprocity treaty with Jamaica. Re garding the treaty he says: "The treaty, although signed by the president of the United States, does not become operative until ratified by the senate. There Is no public knowl edge of Its provisions now, hence no In telligent foundation for the assertion that the treaty Is antagonistic to the Interests of the United States. Per sonally I do not consider It so." BANK TELLER SUICIDES. Mlddletown, Conn., Aug. 15. Leonldas Darlington, teller of the Citizens' Na tional bank bank, was found dead be side his desk in the bank. A revolver wus lying on the floor. There was no evidence of an attempt at robbery, and It was plain that he had committed suicide. Darlington's accounts with the bank are straight. Despondency over poor health, it is presumed, led to thu suicide. RACE TROUBLE IN TENNESSEE. Ri-lle Buckle, Tenn., Aug. 15. Much frtllng between the races has been aroused by the lynching here of the negro Will Chambers for assaulting a 14-year-old white girl. John Mosely, an other negro, was killed while resisting nrn-st. Jim Dean, a companion of Mosi-ly, was wounded. The whites hae Hsked for guns and ammunition from Murfrotsboro, fearing more trouble.

WILL HOLD ALGER'S ORDER. Washington, D. C, Aug. 15. Inspector General Breckenrldge had a brief in terview with Secretary Root today upon the subject of his bureau. An im portant feature of the interview was a statement by General Root upon the order relating to the Inspector general's department which was signed by Gen eral Alger on July 31. Secretary Root said that It had not yet Issued from the department and would still be sub ject to careful consideration before it was issued. General Breckinridge submitted to the secretary a statement showing the cus tom in other armies and what had been the custom in our army up to the pres ent time. Another statement showed the position of General Breckinridge In the matter of inspections, pointing out the methods he had adopted and mak ing suggestions. Secretary Root will take up the whole subject at a later date. TORTURED THE PRISONERS. Austin, Tex., Aug. 16. Governor Bay ers has received a telegram from W. N. Harns, an attorney of Hidalgo county, reporting Inhuman treatment of Mex ican prisoners In the county Jail there by the sheriff and his deputies.

He also ordered rangers to the scene In esse their services were need ed, to protect the prisoners, as the attorney seemed to think It would be necessary. The report says that the sheriff and his deputies took the pris oners out at night and subjected them to all these tortures In the hope of ex torting a confession from them.

The anti trust law that has be.in operative In Nebraska since July 10, 1897, has been Invoked by Attorney General Smyth la a suit that he has filed in the district court of Douglas county, In which he asks that the Standard Oil company of Indian be restrained from doing busi ness in this state. The petition is a voluminous document that deals at length with the nature and manner of organization of the defendant corpora tion and points out In detail the meth ods by which it is alleged to violate tbe law.
