ACTIVE Mr REPORT THAT LORD ROBERTS IS READY TO MARCH. BOERS ATTACK BRITISH Monotony of Past Few Week At Last Broken By General Re sumption of Hostilities. London. April 24. A renewal of hos tilities tit almost every point in the kld of war la indicated by the latest reports. Moat Important of all the operation ta the n.arch or the thlid and eighth divisions to raise the siege of We gener. Lord Roberts reports fighting iKrtween liundle's men and the Uots .southwest of Dewetsdorp Friday and Saturday. Account of the engage meat or skirmishes vary somewhat, but according to what seems most trualwortby, the enemy have persist ently disputed the British advance, but tiave been gradually driven back. From Maix.ru comes word that the Iloer up to Thursday were still freely moving around Wepener. The British were apparently expecting the arrival of the relief columns. The burgher re ceived reinforcement, and It is stated that President Steyn hag ordered them to bold on tightly to the grain dlntrlcts of Weper.er. Ladybrand and Plcksburg, and at all costs prevent the British forces from obtaining the rich food supplies of those district. Evidently the Boer continue to at tack the position held by British in fantry and artillery nurt of Glen. The fighting ban not, however, developed yet, beyond skirmishing or sniping. A cavalry force is In readiness to act, shouki the necessity arhe fur greater activity in mectlnK the enemy's oper ations. Some correspondents assort that Gen eral Buller Is making preparations to co-operate with Roberta In the grand advance, but It looks as if the Natal commander had a heavy tank on hand to be able to give aid to his thief. IN FORCE I.N NATAL. One critic, who know the country veil. ays It must be remembered that although the Hoera were forced -to re treat from Ladysmlth, they are still in large force In the coiner of Natal, and It would be a most risky thing for Gen eral Duller to move as far to the west as Van Iteenari's pass. Into the Free 6 talc, except with a force so small as to be of little service. This is because of the danger of a sudden attack on the British communications south, to Pietermaritzburg. Such a movement would almost Invite an attack. Consequently It is most likely that ' ahull see General Puller devoting bis best energies for the next few days or longer, to operation designed to clear northern Nutnl of Itoer, as far as Lalns's Nek, When this Is accom plished. It rtiny be considered safe to truive one division back to Von Ree can's pasf, ready to match into the l-Yee Ktftte as soon as the defenders of the pass find their position rendered untenable by Lord Roberts' advance. A part of I-ord Methuen'a force was Bcrctiy attac ked near Rshof on Frl iay. by a'rtrong body of Boers, with two gun. The enemy were held in check, however, and a large convoy. which the column was protecting, was brought rsfely through. LOOK TOWARD MAFKKING. Everybody here seems to be on the qui vlve, expecting the speedy relief of Maeking, Inasmuch as General Cur rington Is now on his way south from Beira. Borne of the military critic are dot at al! sure that his expedition Is tnaklns; for Mafeklng. In any event. It Is worth remember ing that farrlngton's force will hi:d'y be VJy to leave Salisbury before May 1, at the earliest. There will then be nearly 3U miles of open country to be traversed "before Huluwayo, the terml liua of the railroad to Mafeklng, is reached. Even the mobile force un der Cnrrlngton Is hardly likely to cover tills distance In les than a fortnight, as It la essential that the horse should be pared as much as possible, In order to keep (hem in good condition for the Severe tack still before them. NO HOPE BEFORE JUNE, TMs will bring his force to Buluwayo by May IS. He will theij have the as sistance of the railway, which will en able him to expedite his movements otaewhat. Hut even this advantage will hardly allow him to transport a force of 6,000 men with horses and bag Sage and provisions, for the beleaguer ed town, over the 400 odd miles, In less than ten or twelve day. At the end of the railway available, seventy-eight miles wilt have to be traversed on borne, and probably an action fought, before General Carrlngton can hope to bake hand with lladen-Powell. When all these thing are considered ne cannot feel sanguine about Mafe same fcVlnir relieve'! before June L, that ta, if Mafeklng really depends upon Carrlngton. TUB BATTUE OF RAN JACINTO. Auwtln, Tex., April 21. The sixty fourth anniversary of the battle of Han Jacinto was celebrated today. All busi ness ws susnnded. At IVIIevtire Park, eight mile from Amain, William Jennings llryan Deliv ered a 'Han Jaclntn (lay address. at the heroes of the republic of Texas TURKEY MAY CAUSE WAR. Unless Settled Soon Minister WIU Be Given Passports. Washington, D. C, April 2t, Cnles the sultan of Turkey act very prompt ly All Ferrouh Rey, the Turkish min- lster, will be given hi passports, and diplomatic relation between the Unit ed State and Turkey will be suspended until the sultan rwys the 1100,000 due citizens of the United Stat". It is understood that an ultimatum Is ready for presentation to the Turk ish government. It Is believed that In ternational complication could be averted by notifying the continental powers that It was the Intention of the United State to remain In possession, of a port only long enough to collect the money. The administration Is at present averse, however, to going be yond a severance of diplomatic rela tions. The department is entirely satisfied of the accuracy of Minister Strauss' statement relative to the promise made to him by the porte. notwith standing All Ferrouh Bey's declaration that these promises were conditional. All Ferrouh practically has said that Strauss lied, besides breaking all rule of diplomacy by gossiping to news paper about official state business. If diplomatic relations are severed the American missionaries . scattered throughout Turkey are likely to find themselves In a precarious position. Diplomats here say that Turkey would be compelled to guard them with troops or escort them across the fron. tier. All the contingencies that might arlct from an outright breach with Turke have been canvassed at the state do partment, with a thoroughness which of Itself Is sufficient proof of the de liberate earnestness of the United States In .forcing the sultan to settl without regard to the extreme punish ment that may have to be Inflicted on the Ottixnan Empire should he prove pugnacious. The missionary organiza tions In this country, whose Inleresti may be further Jeopardized, have giver, assurance that they are willing to as sume the risk of having their prorty in Armenia destroyed by the Turks, and that the workers there who are de pendent on American support do not shrink from the possibility of a recur rence of the atrocious massacres whkt led to the present crisis. The naval program in the event oi a resort to force has also had carefu' consideration, and It appears that Smyrna will be almost as difficult tc seize as was Santiago, if the Turk! have time to prepare for resistance The city has a comparatively smal proportion of Turkish population, Hi great storehouses and valuable proper ty belonging exclusively to foreigner chletly English and German. On thii account a general bombardment would be out of the question, and as a sk-gt without co-opei atlng land forces wouid be Ineffectual, a serious program U Involved in tht- proposition to seize and administer Its customs. Smyrna's enor mous trade being largely In foreign hands, a protracted blockade of the hurbur would antagonize European In terests to a dangeious extent, and the United States without the approval of the continental powers' might be seri ously embarrassed In the undertaking. Engllah consent and probably Eng- j land's co-operation could be reasonably relied upon, but In any case the Amer- i lean naval forces assembled In the ! Mediterranean would have to be of a powor sufficient to force the Dardan elles In the end. This, of course, It Is thought, would promptly Involve all ihu European poweis, not as antagonists of the United States, but as eager par ticipants in the partition of the Turk ish empire. CHURCHES FOR THE ISLANDS. Gen. Wheeler's Suggestion Regard ing the Phlllppl its. Washington, D. C, April 24. General Joseph Wheeler, In a letter to Mis Fannie Wheelan, a prominent Catholic of this city, has set on foot a move ment to aid the ixior churehe of the1 Philippine and Ladrone islands. In thi letter General Wheeler say: "During my recent visit to the Phil ippines and Ladrone I was much im pressed with the great devotion of the women, and It occurred to me that It would be a graceful thing for the Catholic women of our country to show their appreciation of the piety of their sisters of the east in some substantial way. "While on the Island of Guam.where there are six churches, I Inquired what would be the most acceptable present and was Informed that the churches, which are very similar to our small country churehe, need stations of tht cross." Mis Wheelan Is associated with Mr. Hhomas F. Ryan of New York in the work for poor churehe of the United State of the Tabernacle society, the object of which I to furnish necessary article for churches which are too poor to procure thpm. Their work has been chiefly with the Indian missions. HE WILL BOLT ON MKINLEY. Washington, D. C, April 24.

The sen ator mate that he will oppoe Mr. Mc kinley's renosnlnatlon, and, falling In that, he will not vote for the repub lican presidential candidate.

Pullman or tourist accommodations must be en gaged seveial days In advance, pos libly not later than May 3. CKKAP TRAVELING. A one-way railroad fare and sleeping far accommodations at these prices all at the service of the ticket holders foi rooming put poses while at Sioux Fall.-! makes the Sioux Falls convention trip very cheap.

I learned from a member of the Italian commission that King Humbert and the emperor of Austria cannot, because members of the triple alliance, visit the exposition. There were hopes Just after the Franco-Italian treaty of commerce was sign ed that Humbert would come. He seemed Inclined to do so. But when he found the French government did not encourage the Idea of a visit from the German emperor he held back. Francis Joseph was glad to hold back. Gay crowds now Jar his oft wounded spirit. Misfortune Is ever shy. And who among European sovereign has been more unfortunate than the Austrian kaiser? The Prince of Wale was to have been at the Inauguration. But the French caricatures of the queen goaded him Into deciding otherwise. M. Del easse, however, has acted so hand somely In his official relations with Great Britain that the prince may In the course of the summer visit the great show. It Is even said that he will hold some receptions In the Brit ish pavilion. This would be a happy innovation. King Leopold, the Crown Prince and Princess of Denmark, the King of Swe den (probably the queen, also), the queen of the Netherlands and her mother, the Prince of Bulgaria, are all exiK-cted. The czars' promise to come was made to M. Felix Faure personally. He may be a visitor In August or September on his way from Denmark to Hesse Darm stadt. But nothing Is absolutely cer tain. He, however, showed such a lively Interest in the exhibition In speaking to Comte J. Montebello that his abstention would cause disappoint ment. The czar is undemonstrative and indeed remarkably so. It Is rare for him to warm up to the degree of breaking down reserve. But It appears that he did so in the conversation I mention. The Alexander" II bridge may well call for expressions of admiration. It is really the finest of the kind in Eu rope and a noble feature of the exhi bition landscape. REVOLUTION IS SPREADING. Rebels In Columbia Seom To Be Calnlug Ground. Colon. Colombia, April 7. (By .Mall.) Despite all information to the con trary, the revolution is developing all through the republic. For months the rebels have been gaining strength. The department of Santander and all of Tolima, with the exception of the city of Honda, are In the hands of the In surgents. The rebels also have control of large parts of the departments of Iloyacaya and Cuaea. Several weeks ago the Insurgents at tacked Rio Hacha, capturing the port after a severe fight. They are now be lieved to be moving toward Santa Ma ria and the government troops have made elaborate plans to resist the at tack. Santa Marta Is the capital of the department of Magdalena and has a population of about six thousand. It Is a port of entry and a railway line Is partially constructed, which may be continued to the Magdalena river. The neighboring estate of San Pedro Ale Janeiro will be remembered as the place where the liberator Bolivar died in lS.'iO. It Is believed to be the Intention of the insurgents to attack the place by both land and ea, and If they are vic torious they will move on Barranqull la. General Palaclo left Barranqullla on March 26 with three steamer and 1,100 men for some port) on the Mag dalena river, leaving 1,400 men to guard the city. The strength of the Insur. gent I not known. PLA6UE RA6ES AT SYDNEY. it Is Beyond Control and Other Cities May Suffer, Vancouver, B. C, April 24. It Is the opinion of Dr. Thompson, president of the Sydney board of health, that thero Is no hope of an early cessation of the plague, and that the epidemic can hardly be suppressed under eight or nine month. The steamer M lowers, from Sydney, brought new of the spread of the plague In Austrlaria and of the Inef fectual effort of the government to stamp It out. The premier and mem hers of his cabinet presented them selves for voluntary Inoculation to make more easy the efforts of th health officers In the lower parts of the city. Thorough work ha been done In the way of cleaning the city and war has been waged relentlessly against rat. Under the direction of the health au thorities the pntlre steamer traffic of Sydney has been rearrnaged. Wharvea have been Isolated, ferric removod and Jetties disinfected, lorn down and re built. All the Australian towns, espe cially those on the const, have been taking extraordinary precautions to exclude the plague. KEEP AWAY. TAYLOR WILL NOT CO KENTUCKY. NEAR APPEAL TO ROOSEVELT Report That Grand Jury Has In plicated Him In the Murder of Wm. Coebel. New York, April 24. The World says: vV. S. Taylor, governor of Kentucky, I in New York in consequence of the finding of an Indictment against him by the grand Jury of Frankfort, charg Ing him with being an accessory before the fact to the murder of William Goebel. He appealed to Governor Roosevelt Saturday afternoon, asking that any demand for an extradition be denied. The interview between the governor of Kentucky and the governor of New York lasted for an hour and a half. The utmost secrecy was observed in the coming of Governor Taylor, to the home of Douglas Rpblnson, brother-in-law of Governor Roosevelt, In his stay '.here and in his departure. Governor Taylor arrived in New York from Washington, where he has been preparing his case for the su preme court. The information that he had been indicted caused a sudden change In his plansi NOT ANTICIPATED. The Indictment was not anticipated. At first the fact was disputed, but Fri day flight the friends oi the governor were informed that the report of the Indictment, which had become known In a mysterious way. was absolutely jorrect. A consultation was held. Some ad vised that the governor should Join ex-Secretary of State Flnley of Ken tucky, also under Indictment, in In diana. It was feared that If Governor Taylor remained In Washington the requisition of Governor Beckham would be hon ared. The most feasible plan and that offering to the Kentucky executive the greatest hope of immunity, was his trip to New York and an Interview with Governor Roosevelt. Governor Taylor did not register dur ing the day at any hotel here. He mailed on ex-President Harrison at the Fifth avenue hotel shortly after noon. ' Governor Taylor made a desperate plea to the ex-president to reconsider his decision not to act as his counsel, general Harrison heard Governor Tay lor courteously, but firmly informed him that it would be impossible for him to take up his case, either before the lupreme court of the United States or before the Kentucky courts, when the trial of the Indictment will come up. HARRISON DECLINES. General Harrison said: "It was not (hat 1 do not believe in the cause of Sovernor luylor that caused my re fusal to act as counsel for him. I had io many engagements that I could not take his, case." Afterward Governor Taylor drove to the Waldorf-Astoria, where he took luncheon. At 4 o'clock he stepped into a cab und was driven to the residence 3t Governor Roosevelt's brother-in-law. Over the telephone he had previously notified the governor of his coming. Governor Taylor was warmly greeted by Gover nor Roosevelt. Then the Ken tucklan began to narrate the personal eud, the political fight and its tragic climax in his native state. He protest ed his own Ignorance of the plot to kill William Goebel. It was 6:30 p. m. before Mr. Taylor Jrove away. Governor Roosevelt would not say whether he had promised to refuse to sign extradition papers, if the warrants against the governor of Kentucky were pressed. These war rants will not come until the official In Jlctment of Governor Taylor Is an nounced. Governor Taylor will remain In New York until he hears what ac tion the authorities of the District of Columbia will take upon a requisition from Governor Beckham. VICTIMS OF THE PLA6UE.
