posed It will be, the ship subsidy bill
will be called upbjr Senator Fry and
that Mil Till continue' to receive the
attention of the seaate during the re
mainder of the day. Senator Caffery
will take tic floor when the bill is
taken up and is expected to occupy
the remaining portroa of the day,
whatever time these jsajr be. left. Sen
ator Proetar has gfcrea notice that as

There win be no effort ""to prevent
disDlacesaea of the subsidy , bill by
the appropriation MIL The committee
oa appropriations hopes to be able to
report the lortineationa appropriation
bill by the time the agricultural bill
shall be disposed of a4 the army ap
propriation bill is expected to be
reached later in the week. The plan
is to have all appropriation bills acted
oa as promptly as possible after they
are reported, bat when tksrs are ao
Mils of that character before the sen
ate the subsidy bill will continue to
nave right of way.
No decision has been reached yet
as to whether there will be renewed
effort to secure night sessions ta the
considering of the subsidy bill, but
the present indications are that there
will be no further immediate attempt
in that direction. The opponents of
the Mil declare that in case of a re
newal of the night meetings the
friends of the bill wilt be compelled
to keep constantly in the-chamber a
quorum of their own, : While they
made frequent demands for a 'call of
the senate during the evening sessions
of last week, they alwaya themselves
replied to ibeir names whesi called.
It is now understood to be their pur
pose not tt do this in case of further
efforts to bring the . Mil to a vote by

Much interest Is felt in the effort
which is .to be made to secure legis

11 Details have been received here
of severe fighting at Tabakaberg

railway and about midway between

MaJor Crewe, with a composite col
umn traveling southwest, sighted the
mountain on the morning of January
31. Me heard heavy Bring aad know-
in that Colonel Pitcher's column was
on the other side of tbe mountain he
concluded that this omea was in ac
tion. Consequently he hurried for
ward, only to meet Boers streaming
down and evidently rettrlag from Col
onel Pitcher's lyddite shells. Immedi
ately Maior Crewe brought three fif
teen-pounders and a pompon to bear
on the Boers, who. however, were
found to be so numerous that it waa
impossible to head them. Orders were
riven to return to camp, about two
miles from the mountain. The col
umn rested until 4 o'clock in the aft
ernoon, when the march was resumed
Major Crewe was Just touching the
southern oolnt of the mountain when

were attacking them on both flanks

stsrted to Join General Knox, twelve
miles southwest. The Boers immedi
ately reattached htm, compelling him
to fight a second rearguard action for

LONDON, Feb. 9.Publh attention
has again turned to South Africa by
the dispatch of reinforcements and
tbe publication of Lord Roberts' mail
Rumors have been in circulation
that Mr. Chamberlain has reconsid
ered his South African policy and was
contemplating a round-table confer
ence with Mr. John Morley and Sir
William Hanourt and the recall of
Sir Alfred Mllner. The Dally Mall
savs It Is able to assert on Mr. Cham
berlain's authority, that the story Is
a fabrication and that tbe government
retains tbe most absolute confidence
in Sir Alfred Mllner. "Mr. Chamber
lain flatly denies" says the Mail
"that he haa had any communication
with any member of the opposition
on the subject of the war."
Lord Roberts' dispatch are not
regarded as giving any further elu
cidation of the conduct of the war,
but they are Interesting, as proving
that throughout the campaign he nev
er bad sufficient men, horses or sup
plies to cover such a vast field of op
eration. t-nrd Roberts asserts deliberately
' that the nermanent tranquillity of the
republic "depends on the complete
disarmament of the inhabitant, a task
difficult, I admit, but attainable with
time and patience.
Looking at all the circumstances.
Lord Roberts says the campaign i
uniaue in tbe annals of war" and he
pays the highest tribute to the gal
lantry and v-orth of the troops, de
claring that "no finer fwee ever wok
the field undr the British flag."
There is a aeneral Idea that the
dispatches have suffered considerable
excision at the hands of the war office.
Thev do not throw any further light
on the summary retirement of Gen
eral Colville or any other matters re-
garlng which the public is anxious
The appearance of bubonic plague
at Capetown seems likely to add to
the difficulties of tbe situation, xne
authorities there have decided upon a
wholesale extermination of rats.
Should the dlseacs spread It will ne
cessitate changes in the military ar
rangements. . , .
Today Sir Alfred Mllner makes an
other earnest appeal to employers to
allow as many men as possiMe to
enroll in the colonial mounted defence
force. : ... " : ' ' ' " r "
From Delagoa Bay It Is reported
that the British have occupied Er
nuiin mnA Carolina, which until re
cently were Boer depots.
The Boers held up a Natal mall
train near Vlakfontein. The few aal
diers on board exhausted their cart
ridges and tbe Boers then lobbed the
passengers, afterward t allowing the
tral nto proceed.

Won from New York relative to the
Carnegie deal, but not a word came,
here today that gave any Intelligence
as to what progress is being made

the deal. If the plans go ' through.
Mr. Carnegie will withdraw entirely.

stock a sum exceeding $85,000,000 in
guaranteed 5 per cent bonds, which
are to be a flrst Hen on the uarnegie
and other prorierttee.-
Oossln centers now mostly on tne
price that will be paid for the 5,000
shares of stock, Two yesrs ago H.
C. Frlck and others, including ex-
Judge W. H. Moore, obtained an op
tion on Carnegie's holdings, paid $1,
000,000 In hand money, failed to com
plete the deal and lost the $1,000,000.
At that time Carnegie stated mat tne

be high. This statement Is being re
ferred to as evidence that tne price
placed Is considerably above the par
value of $1,000 a ahare. It ia un

Neither will It be In the aature of
g flat refusal, though for purposes
of Immediate construction It will be
tantamount to sucb a reiuaat. it win

a conclusion, by which tine tha Hay-
Pmunrefete treaty win nave wpaeo on
the basis of the senate's amendments.
