they shuoldpot be allowed to take

LONDON , Feb. 24. ( New York
World Cablegram. ) Strong rumors
that Ladysmlth has been relieved have
just come In.
DURBAN , Feb. 24. The rumor gains
credence that Ladysmlth has been re
lieved. It Is also reported that Gen
eral Cronje has surrendered 8,000 men
and that General Kitchener has been
slightly wounded in the left arm.
Crowds throng the streets , shouting
and cheering because of supposed vic
tories. Seventeen hundred Boors have
been killed or wounded , the latter , It id
reported , Including General Cronjo.
LONDON , Feb. 21. ( New York-
World Cablegram Special Telegram. )
It Is believed hero by war experts
who do not print views or criticisms
that Cronjo is playing a desperate
game on slim tactics. So far no report
contains any mention of the capture of
the Boers' big guns. Of all the artil
lery about Magersfonteln and Klmbor-
ley only one disabled twelve-pounder
was found when the British occupied
the ground. It Is said Cronje started
all his guns from the place with orders
to get across the Caal as soon as ho
learned that Roberts was In command
at Modder river with reinforcements ,
and that hu moved himself with all the
mounted Boers aa soon as he learned
of French's movement to the rear. Ob
servers hero think he went as far as
ho could , then picked his position and
determined to sit tight until assured
that the artillery had escaped. The re
inforcements Roberts reports having
scattered do easily are said to have
been the rear guard of the artillery
train , which was covering the move
ment north and east. No reports of
any artillery appear in response to the
British attack atKoodoosrand. Cronjc's
plan appears to be to hold all the Brit
ish possible about his camp till certain
the artillery's retreat Is assured. The
proposed armistice would have gained
twenty-four hours for the retreat of the
guns , while the agreement would only
have covered the fighting force en
gaged at that point. Boer sympathizers
think Cronje wll | hold fast until the
last moment , then the order will be
given , "Every man for himself , " with
instructions to rally at a point north ,
where the artillery is safe in a now
position. It is insisted that the same
plan is being followed about Lady-
amlth , the guns being slowly and safely
removed to defend thoTransvaal passes
while the mobile force is left in the
trenches to .prevent a sudden attack
by the British.
BRYAN ON GROSVLNOR'S TALK.

ATLANTA. Ga. , Feb. 24. W. J.
Bryan addressed a crowd which tested
the capacity of the hall of the house
of representatives tonight. About 1,500
people were turned away. lie was
asked tonight if he had seen Congress
man Grosvcnor'a statement yesterday
to the effect that ho ( Bryan ) waa
equally responsible with the democrats
who voted for ratification of the treaty
and was estopped from opposing any
of Its legitimate effects.
"It is true that I favored the ratifi
cation of the treaty , " said Mr. Bryan ,
"but I stated in my interview , publish
ed by the Associated Press on Decem
ber 14 , four days after the treaty was
signed , or nearly two months before It
was ratified , that in my Judgment we
should not only ratify the treaty , but
that wo should declare the nation's
purpose to give the Filipinos inde
pendence upon the same terms that
independence was promise' ! to the Cu
bans. Tills opinion was reiterated
lime and again.
"The Bacon resolution made the
promise of Independence. It was in
troduced more than a month before
hostilities began and there was a tie
vote in the senate until the vice presi
dent cast the deciding vote and de
feated it. If that icsolution had been
passed at the time Senator Bacon in
troduced * it there would not have been
any war in the Philippine1 ! .

national convention would have but
little effect on the attendance.

WASHINGTON. Feb. 24. The next
national democratic convention will
be held at Kansas City , Mo. , July 4.
This was the decision of the demo

at the Hotel Rolelgh today to fix the
time and place of holding the conven

which competed for the honor of en

poor showing It made when the vote
was taken ( the result , Kansas City

The claims of the rival cities as to
hotel accommodations , railroad and
telegraphic facilities were presented in
open session by representatives of each
city , and subsequently in executive
session. Former Governor W. .1. Stone
on behalf of Kansas City and Nation
al Commltteeman E. C. Wall , on behalf
of Milwaukee , explained the financial
Inducements which the city he repre
sented was willing to make.
Each offered the committee $30,000
but in addition , Kansas City was will
ing to furnish hotel accommodations
for the members of the committee
and the hall , with decorations and
music free. Milwaukee's strongest
argument was the political effect which
the holding of the convention in that
city would have upon German-Amer
ican voters , who were represented to
the committee as wavering in their al
legiance to the republican party.
it seemed to be taken for granted
by at least two speakers that Bryan
would be nominated and that the Chicago
cage platform in substance would be
reafllrmed. Opposition to trusts , ex
pansion and "imperialism , " together
with every mention of Bryan and the
Chicago platform aroused enthusiasm ,
but during the open session there was
no allusion to the Issue of free silver.
Three dates for holding the con
vention were proposed , May 9 , by
Townscnd of Oregon ; June 11 , by Sen
ator Tillmau of South Carolina , and
July 4. by McGraw of West Virginia.
A speech of ex-Senator Gorman In
favor of holding to precedent and
naming a date later than that for the
convention of the party in power bad
considerable influence in causing In
