8 entire province of Zamboanga sur-
cndercd to Very unconditionally. De-
Ivercd all guns promised. Numerous
ocal chiefs declared loyalty.
The Information contained In Ad
miral Watson's dispatch was received
) > the president and his advisers with
uiconccaled satisfaction. The surren-
icr of the province of Zamboanga Is
regarded as the beginning of the end
of the revolution in the island of Min
danao nnd It Is believed It will bo n
i.nrd blow to those who are still en-
leavorlng to maintain the Insurrection
n the Island of Luzon.
On the 21st Inst. Admiral Watson
cabled the navy department that Com-
nandcr Very had captured the city of
Zamboanga on the ICtli. He was aided
) > the friendly natives and Mores and
was holding the town pending the ar
rival of reinforcements from Jolo. On
.ho same day General Otis lnformo.1
the war department that he had or-
lercd two c.ompanles of Infantry to be
cnt to Zamboanga from Jolo.
Zamboanga Is the principal province
of the Island of Mlndaona , which id
he second largest of the Philippine isl
ands. Advices from Admiral Wataon
ndlcatc that the entire southern half
of the Island , which comprises the
> rovlnce of Zamboanga , has yielded to
ho American forces and acceded to the
authority of the United States.
WASHINGTON , Nov. 27. The war
lepartmcnt lias not l 2en advised of
ho surrender of the province , as ro-
lorted in Admiral Watson's dispatch ,
secretary Root saying tonight ho had
no news today from General Otis. Both
Secretaries Root and Long are elated
over the information sent by the ad
miral and express the belief that the
end of the insurrection In tbo Philip
pine islands is now near at hand.
Gront Crowd Gathers , About House nnd
NEW YORK , Nov. 27. There was a
big crowd of visitors to Paterson , N. J. ,
yesterday. The street In front of Car
roll Hall , the Hobart homo , was crowd
ed all day. The greatest however , gath
ered at Cedar Lawn cemetery. There
a special detail of police had to be
ualntalned to keep the crowds from
trampling about the graves , and the
crowds about the receiving vaults. It
s not likely Vice President Hobart's
jody will bo placed In the ground. It
a the intention of the family to erect
x tomb upon the plot of land whore
Miss Fannie Hobart lies , and besldo
whoso body , It Is generally supposed
the body of Mr. Hobart would bo

commenced before long , so It Is doubt
ful It the body of the vlco president
will be removed from Us present rest
ing place until the tomb of the family
Is erected.

LONDON , Nov. 27. ( Now York
World Cablegram ) Capo mall brings
tnccnsorcd letters from Churchill from
Capetown November 1 , in which ho
says :
"The situation In Cape Colony has
iccomo much graver. It Is possible
hat had the war broken out three
nonths ago the loyalty of the Dutch
vould have been demonstrated for all
line. War after three months' hesl-
atlon proved too icvero a teat and Is
s no exaggeration to say that a con-
ildorahlo portion of Capecolony .trern-
ilen on the verge of rebellion. Dutch
armors talk loudly and confidently of
our victories , meaning those of Boers ,
and racial feeling runs high. "
Knight , World correspondent , wrlt-
ng from DeAar Junction , November C ,
complains bitterly of censorship , and
leclaros that the British had 10,000
lorseH , miles of transport wagons , with
15,000,000 worth of stores , at DeAar
Junction and left them there without
any military protection , says :
"It Is wonderful , Indeed , " he goes
on , "that the Boers did not attempt to
seize these valuable prizes a week ago
when the camp was practically unde
fended. Our position Is far from se
cure even now. "

NEBRASKA QJTY , Neb. , Nov. 27.
Senator Hayward had another bad
light , and when morning dawned
its condition was not so good as on
ho previous evening. This had been
he course that his case has taken dur-
ng the last few days and Is regarded
as anything but a favorable symptom ,
n fact , Dr. Whltten was considerably
discouraged at the condition of his pa
tient this morning. The senator iq
gradually growing weaker , his pulse la
icccloratcd'and It is thought by those
best acquainted with the case that he
cannot survive a great while longer.
While Mr. Hayward's condition is
verse in the morning , yet during the
day the symptoms show a somewhat
better condition , but this cannot bo re
garded as anything permanent. At 3
o'clock this morning Dr. Whltteu is
sued the following bulletin :
"Senator Hayward passed a restless
night. At this hour his temperature Is
9Q 5-8 ; pulse , 90 ; respiration , 20 , and
ntermlttont. His mental condition re
mains the same. Paralysis unchanged.
Acceleration of pulse and temperature-
considered unfavorable. "
At 7 p. m. the following bulletin was
ssued by Dr. Whitten :
"Senator Hayward passed a compar
atively comfortable day. He took food
and rested and slept some. Tempcra-
.uro at 7 p. m. , 99.5 ; pulse , 80 ; resplra-
lon , 23. Paralysis nnd mental condi
tion remain the same. "
England's Formal Declaration ofVnr
Gives Towers n Wedge.
ST. PETERSBURG , Nov. 27. The
[ lusslan newspapers announce that the
British charge d'nffalrs has Informed
; ho Russian government that Great
Britain has been In a state of war with
the Dutch republics in South Africa
since August 12.
Tne Svct. commenting upon this
says : "England , in giving this notifi
cation , withdraws her declaration that
she is not carrying on war , but Is
merely subjugating rebels. "
The Navoo Vrcmya , which attributes
tar-reaching Importance to the British
notllkatlon , says : "Tho powers are
now In a position to send not only Red
Cross agents , but military agents as
well , and they may Judge this a fitting
tlmo to Intervene , especially as the
Afrikanders are going more and more
to the Boer side. "
Czar Ilnys American Horses.
CHICAGO , Nov. 27. Baron P.vil
yietlnghoff , a representative of the
Russian government , is In Chicago
buying horses for the czar's army.
Baron Vlctlnghoff says that already
1,000 American horses , purchased prin
cipally In Kentucky and Virginia , have
been shipped to the czar's dominions
and 1,000 more are to follow them as
soon as the baron makes the selec
"Not only am I buying for the ar
my , " ho said , "but for brooding pur
poses an well. The animals shipped
lor military use go merely as an exper
iment. They will bo divided into lots
of four and six In different garrisons
and given a trial. "
Uold Last Council of War.
MANILA. Nov. 27. The last Fili
pine council of war was held by the
retreating leaders at Bayambong on
November 13 In the house now occu
pied by General MacArthur. It was
attended by Agulnaldo , Plo del Pllar ,
Garcia , Alejandrino and eomo mem
bers of the so-called cabinet. Information
mation has reached General MacAr
thur from several sources to the effect
that the council recognized the futility
of attempting any further resistance
to the Americans with united forces
nnd agreed that the Filipino troops
should scatter nnd should hereafter
to _ w guerilla methods.
What to Do With Agulnuldo.
WASHINGTON , Nov. 27. Consider
able Interest Is being taken In social
circles hero as to the disposition of
Agulnaldo In case of capture. It is
frankly admitted that the best solution
would bo his death in action , but this
Is not expected. Should ho ba cap-
utred , General Otis will undoubtedly
await instructions from Washington
as to the treatment ho shouM accord
htm. Should Agulnaldo escape to
Hong Kong , the United States could
not , as a matter of right , ask for his
surrender and the president would
therefore doubtless determine to leave
the Insurgent leader alone.

renders to MoArthur at Tarlao ,

MANILA , Nov. 25. Senor Buenca-
mlno , a former member of the socalled
cabinet of Agulnaldo , has been brought
to General Otis a prisoner on board
the transport Brutus. Ho had sou'glrt
refuge In a village near San Fabian ,
with Agulnaldo's mother and son. The
natives disclosed his Identity to Major
Cronln , who captured him.
General Young Is still In the moun
tains on the trail of Agulnaldo.
Bautlsta , president of the Filipino
: ongress , presented himself to General
MacArthur at Tarlac today and formal
ly renounced all further connection
with the Insurrection.
He was ono of the Influential Filipi
nos who hesitated at the beginning of
the war as to which side on which to
cast his lot. He was offered a Judgo-
ohlp of the supreme court , but declined.
He now announces that he desires
o accept the position and says the
Filipino congress and cabinet are scat
tered , never to reassemble.
Some of the members , ho adds , have
icturncd to their homes , while others
nre flying for safety. Many of the
congressmen have resigned and he be-
leves the Filipino soldiers will lay
down their arms everywhere as soon
is they learn the truth.
WASHINGTON , Nov. 25. General
Otis summarizes the situation In Luzon
zen in n dispatch to the war depart
ment today in which ho says that the
nsurgent government can no longer
claim to exist , its troop's and officers
ore scattered and Aguinaldo in hiding.
The dispatch follows :
"MANILA , Nov. 24. Claim to gov
ernment by insurgents can be rnada
no longer under any friction ; Its treas
urer , secretary of the interior and pres-
dent of congress in our hands ; its pres-
dent and remaining cabinet officers
in hiding evidently in different parts
of central Luzon provinces ; its gen
erals and troops in small bands scat
tered through these provinces acting
as banditti or dispersed , playing the
role of 'amigos' with arms concealed.
Indications are that Aguinaldo did not
escape through the lines of Lawton
or Wheaton , but fled westward from
Bayainbong railway station. Tele-
; iaphlc communication to Dagupan es
tablished , probably to San Fabian to
day ; by relaying nine miles of track
with material at hand railway commu
nication to that point re-established ;
labor of troops must attend mainten
ance. "
Twelve Thousand Enter Carroll Hill to
View Face of the Dend.
NEW YORK , Nov. 25. In Carroll
ball yesterday afternoon the remains
of Vice President Hobart lay in state
and the public had an opportunity to
view them. Fully 5,000 persons were
in the streets. Lines were fo-uort by
a squad of police , but the force was
entirely too small to maintain any
semblance of order. Women were
ntsoiy In the n. ' orky. They in
cluded all classes and all had the same
opportunity to take a laet look at the
face of the dead.
The first person to see the remains
after they had been removed from the
room where Vlco President Hobart
died nas Attorney General Grigs" . H'i
shook his head as he noticed the
change in the face of the dead , and as
lie stepped aside from the room , very
much affected , said :
"He has suffered much ; more than
anyone will know. "
Women fainted on the porch , and at
one tlmo half a dozen lay Insensible
on the lawn , but were revived. At the
coffin there was a fainting scene. A
woman about 20 years old , after gazing
In the face of the dead vice president ,
stood as though transfixed. Then she
screamed and fell forward into the
arms of a policeman. She was placed
in a chair and revived. It was estimat
ed that fully 12,000 persons saw the
remains In the four hours they were
exposed to view. Thousands more
would have seen them if the time had
liaised Spanish Gunboats to Ito Added to
Watson's Fleet.
WASHINGTON , Nov. 25. Admiral
Watson's fleet In Philippine waters Is
about to bo augmented by the three
gunboats. Isle de Luzon , Isle de Cuba
and Don Juan do Austria. , captured
from Spain at the battle of ManlU bay.
Commanding officers heretofore have
bctn assigned to the vessels and Ad
mit al Watson has been authorized to
complete the list of officers from those
with the Asiatic squadron. The new
acquisitions are about the sizu of the
gunboat Marietta and they will arrive
about the tlmo of the Brooklyn , New
Orleans , Nashville and Marietta , mak
ing in all quite a large Increase lu the
Asiatic squadron.
Wireless Telegraphy Urnulng Nearer.
WASHINGTON , Nov. 25. The War
department is quietly at work on the
problem of wireless telegraphy for the
signal service. The signal corps has
been handicapped recently , both by
lack of funds and officers , to experi
ment on an extensive scale , but Cap
tain Relber , at Governor's Island , New
York , Is carry on a series of experi
ments between that point nnd Tomp-
klnsvllle , with a view to adapting the
army apparatus for communication be
tween fortified points and in any other
locality where the wireless system
might prove superior-to the older form
of telegraphy. M.
Low Wutor Principally to Illntno for tli
Or cut Scarcity.
CHICAGO , Nov. 25. Famine threat
ens the paper trade and butchers and
bakers are meditating the offering of
a rebate for the return of the- yellow
and brown wrappings In which their
wares are delivered to their customers.
Low water In the streams which sup
ply the paper mills , is , according to Ed
gar A. Hall of the Hanchctt Pnpm
company , 11 and 13 LaSalle street , the
cause of the scarcity , which is o cu
more alarming in New England and
the middle Atlantis states than it is
in the west. All grades and qualities
of papers , from the most delicate tis > -
sue in which millinery confections aio
sent homo to their purchasers to tnc
rough brown fiber sheets In which cor
ner grocers wrap salt mackerel , have
advanced in price , 30 or 40 per cent
within the last thirty days , and dealers
and Jobbers light for the chance to buy
even at advanced rates.
The smaller jobbers In paper are be
ginning to dread being forced out of
business because of their Inability to
furnish the supplies their customers
require. The demand for paper , ac
cording to Mr. Hall , is unusually 1 irgo
this autumn , and the drought has re
duced many of the great mills to six
and eight hours' work dally , although
their contracts and the Jobs in sight
would test their capacity even though
they were running twenty-four hours
a day.
The Wisconsin mills , among whicli
the factories at Manasha , Appleton and
Marlnettc are the most Important m
the west , refuse to accept orders for de
livery before January 1,1900 , and some
decline to entertain contracts calling
for deliveries within four months. To
the drought difllculty some of the Wis
consin mills have added the scarcity
of timber for their pulp mills.
The famine is likely to affect some
of the smaller newspapers , which de
pend for their supply of sheets on the
Jobbers. The New York , Boston and
St. Louis wholesalers quote prices on
hundred-ream lots very nluctanlly ,
nnd across the face ot their letters is
stamped the warning , "All prices and
quotations are made subject to change
without notice. " Carload lots , even In
the coarser fibers and manilas , are not
to be had at any price , and Chicago
dealers who-mado contracts with local
packers and department stores for Oc
tober deliveries early In August are
still furnishing their patrons with
dally supplies in wagon loads.
Strlckon Senator's Condition Shows No
Chance for the Hotter.
NEBRASKA CITY , Neb. , Nov. 25.
Dr. Whltten has just returned from the
bedside of Senator Hayward and has
given out the following bulletin :
"Senator Hayward has passed a very
icstless day. His temperature tonight

26 , Irregular and intermittent. His

unintelligible than it has been for sev
eral days past. Otherwise his general
condition Is as It has been for the last
forty-eight hours. "
Senator Hayward's present illness
dates back to November 9. At 5:30 :
p. m. on that day he left his office

middle of the street when he staggered
and fell. He arose and walked to his
residence , five blocks away , but upon
arriving there Immediately took to his
bed , where he has since remained.
After three or four days he rallied to
such an extent that the physicians
gave out encouraging reports of his
probable complete recovery , but for the
last week he hixs barely held nls own.
The condition of the paralyzed mem
bers is more serious tonight than it has
been any time previous.
