The authorities ivt Manila were in
formed Sunday, from reliable sources,
that un outbreak in tho poorer districts
of Mnnila had been cart-fully planned
for daylight on the following day. It
failed to occur, probably on account of
the vigorous measures enforced. Many
natives of the Tonus district left, tak
ing their valuables. All the small
shops, which the guards usually forced
to close at 8:30 p. in., were shut at sun
set. A general feeling of uneasiness
The guards of the city were doubled
and a strong force situated at this
slaughter house, the center of an un
ruly section. Two guns of the Sixth
artillery were stationed near-by at a
point commanding the native quarter.
The commanders of the reserve troops
were ordered to bo prepared for a call
Three native police have- been ar

fact that their comrades informed the

THE BOER AND THE BRITON
Active Movements In Mouth Africa AVllli
the Moors Aggreulvo.
So far as actual news is concerned,
very little change in the situation in
the Transvaal Is to bo noticed. Tho
state of affairs at Mafeking can only
be conjectured. Tho occupation of
Newcastle by the Boers wm prepared
for and expected, the British abandon
ing the place. The Boers are reported
to be menacing Kimberley.
Very heavy rains and snows are re
ported, which hamper the movements
of the Boers, and they are finding that
they began too late to easily obtain tho
initial successes they had counted on.
They find the advance upon Ladysmith
difficult, cith from the north or west,
as General Sir George Stewart White's
rocouuolssance seems to have sutllced
to deter them for the present.
The peaks of the Drakensbcrg range
are snow-covered, and the storms Hint
have occurred, must have caused the
Boers great discomfort, which probably
explains their failure to attack Gener
The Boers are making strenuous ef
forts to capture Cecil Rhodes.
SUNDAY IN SIOUX CITY.
Frcsldentlul Party does to Church nnd
Sunday was a quiet day for the

After leaving the First Methodist

The Columbia won Monday's race by

In a glorious breeze, over 'a wind

Shamrock Monday at New York in the
first race of thu 1800 series for the
trophy. She bounded across the finish
line fully a mile and a half ahead of
the challenger, defeating her by ten
minutes nnd fourteen seconds actual

must concede to tho challenger on ac

"My Lords and Gentlemen: There
Are many subjects of domestic! interest
to which your attention will lie invited
at a later period, when tho ordinary
season for the labors of a parliamen
tary session has been reached. For tho
present 1 have invited your attendance
in order to ask you to deal with an ex
ceptional exigency, nnd 1 pray that, in
performing tho duties which claim
your attention, you may have the guid
ance and blessing of Almighty God."
Thr address was received vigorously,
heading lords and members of thu
house acquiesce! In tho situation they
were called upon to meet, hut other
members equally as prominent, vehe
mently declared against tho war, de
claring it unjust, and in direct viola
tion of the terms of thu convention of
1H8I, and proposing an independent ar
bitration as a means of settlement.
Lord Kimberly, while upholding the
government criticised tho way negotia
tions wero conducted, and criticised
tho tone of Mr. Chamberlain's speculum.
In replying to Lord Kimberly Pre
mier Salisbury said lie believed that n
desire to get rid of tho word "suzerain
ty" nnd thu reality which it expressed
had been tho controlling desire the
dream of President Kruger's life. It
was for Unit that the "president of thu
Tranhvaal had set up thu negotiations
in 1884, and In order to get that hateful
word out of thu convention ho had
Hindu considerable sacrifices. Mr.
Kruger had used oppression of the out-
landers as a screw to obtain a conces
sion on the subject of suzerainty.
"It was largely duo to thu character
of Mr. Kruger and to tho ie'.eas pursued
by him that we have been led step by
Btcp to tliu present moment when we
are compelled to decide whether the
future of Soutli Africa will be a grow
ing Dutch supremacy or a safe, per
fectly established supremacy of tho
English people" (Cheers.)
The premier concluded by elenllng
briefly with tho government's futuru
policy in Soutli Africa, declaring tliat
whiiu there must be no doubt as to thu
paramountey of tho sovereign power of
Great Britr.i.i tliero must be also no
doubt that the whlto nice in Soutli
Africa would be put un on an equality,
and due precautions for tho "philan

hitherto been too forgetful.
