MEETING OP THE DIPLOMATS.
When the revolutionists were sighted
Minister Powell called a meeting of the
diplomatic and consular bodies at the
United States legation for the purpose
f deciding upon the best means of
protecting life and property and to pre
vent Injury to noncombatants In case

A messenger was then dispatched to
General Vasquez, asking him to select
the time and place for an Interview
with the delegation. The messenger re
turned with the reply that the revolu
tionary general had appointed the fol
lowing morning for the Interview, add
ing that In the meanwhile he would
suspend hostilities if the government
would agree to adopt the same course.
Later the same d:iy, however, the
Haytian minister, L. Isorno, and the
Spanish minister communicated to the
revolutionary commander a message
from President Jiminez, consenting to
the drawing up of a treaty of capltula
' tion, which was to provide a full guar
anty for the safety of the officers', em
ployes and defenders of the govern
ment, as well as for the security of
personal property. The president and
the ministers, It was further agreed,
were not to leave the country before
the submission of all the authorities
of the different districts of Santo Do
mingo had been received and all polit
ical prisoners were to be liberated.
The form of the new government of
Santo Domingo has not been decided

He has ordered General Davis to ar
range a conference with the prominent
sultans and dattos.
A post will be established at Camp
iVlckars, where the troops now are.
Little Information can be obtained con
cerning the wounded, Americans. Gen

few deaths are likely to occur.
Lieutenant Joss man's case Is now
considered to be more serious than that
of Captain Moore. General Chaffee

supplies and two doctors. He thinks
there will be no more fighting unless

step of the . state will be to issue a
writ of ouster. If the writ Is obtained,
the four bit: packing concerns will be
prohibited from doing business In the
state. The attorney general considers
the evidence of the St. Joseph butch
ers conclusive evidence of the existence

Jefferson City, Mo. (Special.) There

"If a cattleman ships cattle else
where, not selling In East St. Louis,
a dispatch is sent ahead by the pack

Other witnesses told of condemned

giving of rebates, and T. Z. Wcrtz,
formerly manager of the Topeka

RAILROAD BATTLE ROYAL IS ON.
Chicago, 111. (Special.) Proxies for
the Chicago & Northwestern annual
meeting, to be held here June 5, are at
a big premium. A battle royal Is being
waged for their possession, the con

Those now In control of the property
have awakened to the fact that a big
coup has been planned to be accom
plished at the annual meeting, and
they are now putting forth their most
strenuous efforts to prevent It. When
the books closed last week they
thought they were safe, but they have
since then been convinced by indisput
able evidence that they are by no
means out of the woods. Large hold
ers of shares are being Importuned by
both sides to the contest for their prox
ies, and valuable considerations are
being offered for them, with a large
number of stockholders refusing to
surrender their rights to either side at
this stage of the proceedings.
6RAND JURY ON THE BEEF TRUST.
St. Louis, Mo. (Special.) The beef

St. Louis grand jury. Following the

ject to the grand jury. He announces
that he will subpoena all the witnesses
who testified at Jefferson City and
other persons whom he can find that
know anything ubout the operations
of the beef companies.
s"Thls has become a subject for the
criminal courts," said Mr. Folke, "and
the matter will be as thoroughly Inves
tigated as have been the bribery scan
dals, and I have no doubt but that men
who have been selling diseased and de
cayed meat to St. Loulsans will be
landed behind the bars of the peniten
tiary." MORE ABOUT THE WATER CURE.

Lonaon.-Speclal.) The wlf e of Gen
eral Lucas Meyer, the commander of
the Orange Free State forces, who Is in
this country, has received a cable mes
sage from her husband saying that
peace In South Africa is probable.
Further advices received here from
South Africa announced that 208 Boers
had been captured and that ten bur
ghers were killed in the neighborhood
of Llndley, Orange River colony.
Lord Kitchener in rtportlng the cap
ture of Boers near Llndley, said that
he British trops forming a continuous
line left the Frankfort, Hellbron and
Vredefort line at dawn without wheels
of any sort and proceeded rapidly
south, reaching the Kroonstad and
Llndley neighborhood with the result
announced. The British casualties were

Irreconcilable Boers In the Orange Riv
Lord Salisbury, during his speech at
the annual grand habitation of . the
Primrose league here, said the govern
ment had not receded an iota from its
previous peace terms to the Boers.
At the same time he said the country
must not expect the "ashes of past
conflicts" to be extinguished Immedi
ately. Great Britain had had a great
and serious war; but, admitting that
misery and suffering had been caused.
It "must be recognized that the power,
prestige, Influence and magic effect of
our great empire are more potent, more
efficient and more admirable than ever
"We have suffered," continued the
premier, "but we have greatly won. It
was Impossible not to feel that the ef
forts of the country have, In some
cases, not been worthily recognized."
MAKES INDIGNANT DENIAL.
The other day Mr. Morley asked If
there was a single member of the cab
inet of 1899 who, If he could have fore
seen the results of the policy on which
they were then launching the country,
would not have checked the diplomacy
leading to such deplorable results. As
a member of that cabinet he (Lord Sal
isbury) wished to meet this statement
with the most indignant denial. The
war had been used by some politicians
for the squalid purpose of Injuring
their opponents. When a neighboring
power or tribe Invaded his majesty's
dominions and made an attack which
was a gross and flngrant outrage, It
could only be met by fighting In their
own country those who had despised
the rights and sovereignty of our sov
ereign. The premier repudiated the assertion
that Great Britain was weakening on
the subject of peace terms. He de
clared the country could not afford to
submit to the suggestion that affairs
should be allowed to slide back into a
position where it would be In the power
of the enemy when the opportunity
suited them to renew the issues for
which this country had fought during
the last three years.
MUST KILL POWER TO RENEW IT.
When the conflict was over all possi
ble would be done to mould their pres
ent opponents so they could take up
their position In the empire which had
conferred so many blessings on the
human race. But It must be thor
oughly understood that the whole gov
ernment of the country was to be of
such character that It would be Impos
sible that the struggle could be re
newed. It was Important that this
should be made clear, for some people
thought the empire might become tired.
He did not wish to cunvey the idea
that there was any feeling of bitterness
towards the Boers, for there was noth
ing that the government more earnest
ly desired than that they should enjoy
all the privileges conferred on their
brother nations by the colonial system.
Touching on the question of Imperial
federation, Lord Salisbury warned his
hearers of the danger of over-haste and
exhorted those who were anxious to
secure federation to earnestly consider
tbe steps they were going to take and
the results expected.
"We cannot," he said, ,"safely Inter
fere by legislative action with the nat
ural development of our relations to
our daughter countries. I look with
apprehension on any attempt, unless
backed up by the strong mass of pub
lic opinion, to anticipate events or fore
close precious results which, If we are
patient and careful, are in store for the

Washington, D. C (Special.) Secra.
tary Boot haa made ttie following re
sponse to the house resolution calling
for copies of all orders sent to Gen
eral Smith and other officers relative
to the campaign In Samar:
No orders or instructions have been
forwarded to the commanding military
officer in the Philippine islands relat
ing to the conduct of military opera
tions in the island of Samar, or relat
ing to the campaign of General Jacob
H. Smith in said Island, except the
"Instructions for the government of

a copy of which Is annexed hereto, and
which have been followed and . con
formed to by all orders made in the
Philippines in respect to that campaign
so far as the same have been received
at the war department.
It has not been deemed wise or prac

Secretary Root submitted to the sen

1 calling for copies of orders issued by
General Bell relative to reconcentra
tion in Batangas and of the orders Is
sued by General Smith to Major Wal
ler set up by the latter In his defense
before the court-martial.
The secretary also was asked to state
whether these orders were approved by
General Chaffee or by the war depart
ment when they were known In th de
partment and when countermanded. In
reply the secretary submits two orders
by General Bell, dated December 8 and
9 last. In the first General Bell refers
to the treachery of the natives, to
their use of Infernal machines and to
the constant violation of all tae rules
of civilized warfare. Therefore he de
clares he is reluctantly obliged to
avail himself of the right of retaliation
under the regulations to deal severely
with persons who commit the acts de
nounced In general order 100.
He declares that all of General
Smith's written orders relative to Sa
mar already have been printed by the
senate, and that all are In strict con
formity with general order 100. In con
clusion the secretary submits dis
patches from General Chaffee of late
date reporting extensive surrenders of
the Insurgents and the reopening of the
ports to trade bb proof of the success
of the policy embodied in the written

NEW TORTURE FOR FILIPINO NATIVES.
Washington, D. C (Special.) Orders
have been Issued by Secretary Root for
the court-martial of Captain 9ames A.
Ryan, Fifteenth cavarly, for "Improper
conduct in obtaining Information from
natives In the Philippines." Ryan Is
accused of adopting a form of torture,
probably original with him, and hither
to not mentioned In dispatches.
It is stated in a report by Special
Prosecutor Rhode, sent to investigate,
that Ryan's method was to securely
bind the prisoner, stand him erect on
the floor and knock his legs from un
der him. Then his body was lifted and
his head Jolted against the floor again,
whereupon he was stood upon his head
In a bucket of water a certain length
of time and then examined.
Rhode's report also states that Ryan
believes the American occupation Is
unjust; that two generations of mili
tary government won't put the Filipi
nos in a condition for civil government,
and that drastic measures are abso
lutely necessary for self-preservation.
