BRUSSELS , April 0. One of Slpldo's
f.ccompllces been ah'estcd and in-
te-rrogatcd by the commissary of police.
blpldo seems inclined Uo'pimke a con-
and Judging ' frohi his latest.
I j
statements the. outrage kwas the outcome
; |
come of a plot. ' '
Three of the associates are known.
One of the'person's arrested 1ms con-
.fi.s < ? cd that he sold the revolver to
iMpido. His name is Meort.
He admits that he had , n .conversa
tion with Slpldo on the subject of the i
outrage on the prince , but protests that i
the words were spoken In jest.'Tlic po
lice are seeking other accomplices.
The attempt at the assassination of
the Prince of Wales yesterday was the
* .ole topic of conversation in the
.streets , in the cafes and theaters last
evening , i Everywhere regret- and deep
indignation wore manifested an'd satia-
J-ac'tion n't the failure ot the L'rJni\nL's \
attempt was unanhnously expressed.
at is said that whtSn the crowd rushed
ri ( ' Slpldo he received a blow from
someone's jlst In the ; face nyhlch drew
blood. * *
> * ;
One version of Slpido's gtateniqnt is
that he declared thutj he committed the
act because he wasum anarchist and
1 6 did not allude to South Africa.
The , Patriote says : "Investigation
proves premeditation. The Interroga
tion of the prisoners lasted four , hours
nnd It shows that he was instigated by
an unknown person , who pers i'tied
him tO'buy a pistol on .Sunday in the
Old Market for : ' . francs. Accompanied
i ; > tills person , Sipiilo went on Tuesday
to a meeting iii the Flemish theater
and then to the Malden dn Peuple ,
where they had drinks. Then they
\vent to a wine shop , where Sipldo
wrote a letter say ing he had obtained
employment. He then went to the rail-
v aylsta ion and asked the hour of the
: urlyahof the train. Later he entered
a ca'fe and loaded his revolver In the
lavatqrjSipido rqfrsed to give the
nflnie'of Ills .companion . , who , ho said.
was a young man' some years older
than himself. After Sipido was locked ,
up' . .the magistrates went to the house'
of hts parents.
According to the Etpile Boise. Sipido
explained his motive as follows : "For
n long' time I have tlfoughl tna' the
ambitious men who are unchaining ,
Avar sacrifice so many lives that they
deserve to be punished. Those men
should sulTor the penalty of retaliation.
When I learned by the papers that the
prince was going to pass through Brus
sels I Immediately resolved to become
the avenger of humanity and to , kill
this 'assassin. On Sunday I made up
my mind to carry out my project. [
regret that I have not accomplished It
as * I desired. "
The magistrates , struck by the incoherency -
herency of the story , arc convinced
that Slpldo does not tell the whole
truth and wishes to save someone. Jite
magistrates arc going to verity the
prisoner's statement. The commitment
charges the prisoner with an attempt
at assassination.
Jean Bapti&te Sipido was not sub
mitted to ajm''her . ' examination today.
His attltnilo' Is 'dejected and he appears
very tired , having had little sleep. He
expressed no regret at bis crime , but
has repeatedly asked pcrniissib'n to see
Ms mother. No interview between
them" will be , allowed for some days.

up against pork as a basis for the ex

LONDON , April G. TUo Capetown
corrospondcnl of the Standard , , tele
graphing Tuesday , gives the details ,
hitherto obacurc , of the surrender of
i .squadron of Kitchener's Horse on
February 1 , " ;
"It was the day of the r Hef of Klin-
Itcrley. The stuitidron hud been left

while General French advanced to the
besieged town.
"The object of leaving them on the
river was to hold a well pondjng tle )
arrival of another column. The latter ,
however , never c-amc , and the 'troop
ers found themselves besieged for four
days by a body of 400 Doors. There
were but fifty men. but they pierced
holes In the walls of the farm honso
and made a desperate stand for three
"They fought gallantly .1111,1 , alj the

day they managed to catch a goat ,
which they quickly devoured. There
was not a blade of grass on the neigh
boring veldt , and all their horses died
ot starvation. The stench In and
about the farm house was something
"On the fourth day General DeWIlt
.sent a message calling for them to
Mil-render within a few minutes. The
fcUnntlon was hopeless. The Boers
hud two twelve-pounders with them ,
and the squadron was In the last stage
of exhaustion. Seeing there was no
( hnnco of relief , they agreed among
themselves to surrender. "
The war office issued no news yes
terday and little was allowed to come
through from the correspondents at
Uloemfontoln. According to the Stand
ard's representatives there is no sign
that the Doers Intend taking the of
fensive. General Clement is so ills-
loosing of his forces as to guard against
any surprise attack , which , although
improbable , is evidently not regarded
n * impossible , judging from the prepa
rations of Lord Roberts.
As Is usual where .there is a cheek
in the progress of the British cam
paign , the war oflice is being severely
censured for failing to send the noces
wiry supply of remounts for the army.
If is believed Lord Roberts has dif
ficulties other than remounts with
which to contend.

of the Dewey reception committee will
hold a formal meeting next Tuesday
to decide whether the celebration
planned in honor of Admiral Dewey
on the occasion of the Jatter's visit
to Chicago May I shall be abandoned
or carried out in accordance with the
original idea. In the meantime prep
arations are being actively pushed for
the celebration and the work of col
lecting funds Is progressing satlsfac-
toiily. The committee apparently Is
divided as to the wisdom of abandonIng -
Ing the fete , many of the members
stating that the reception to Admiral
Dewey should arise above partisanship ,
while others wish to hear from Ad
miral Dewey as to whether or not his
visit to Chicago is to have any politi

declared that he hud not given an
interview to any one on Admiral
Dcwey's candidacy. Referring to pub
lished expressions of his views , Jic
dictated the following :
"This statement is outrageous. It
in false from beginning to end. A
number of young men representing
different papers called on mo yesterday
for my opinion in relation to Admiral
Dowey's announcement of his candi
dacy and f invariably declined to say
anything whatever on the subject. If
by any possibility I should see fit In
Iho future to give any expression on
this subject , it will be done in a way
that will leave no doubt as to its au
thenticity. In the meantime it is safe
tti calculate in advance that any less
t'uthoritativc statement which may be
attributed to me will be an unjustifi
able fabrication. "

ing the following :
"While temporarily Insane fiom the
effects of Intermittent brain fever ,
contracted during the severe cnnipalgn
it south Luzon , Second Lieutenant
John R. Wnugh of the Thirty-ninth
Infantry shot himself through the heart
at Clamba. early Tuesday morning.
He died almost Instantly and yester
day his body was brought to Manila
by nn cscotl from Company H of the
Thirty-ninth , under command of Lieutenant
tenant Harry 1C. Courtney. The re
mains will be transported to , the sl'ttes
on the Sheridan.
"Lieutenant Waugh was one of the
bravest of the young officers of Bui-
lard's fighting regiment. He hud buiT-
ly reached his majority and for one
so young In years had gained a name
for personal bravery and devotion to
soldierly duty. He was slight of stat
ure and a fit candidate for Iho hospital
when Langhorn's battalion reached
Calnniba a week ago from Its record
breaking 'hike' through the provinces
of Lagnna , Batangas and Tayabas , but
he continued 'for duty' with his com
pany and on Monday collapsed from
nervous exhaustion. He recoverd
within a few bouts and appeared u >
bn on the high road to complete recov-
01 y , but in the early morning of Tues
day he ended his llfp by his own hand
while suffering the tortures of disease.
"He had been talking in a sort of
distracted way with Captain Joseph P.
Coughoy of the Thirty-ninth at his
eiuartors in Cnlambu an hour before
If ? fired the fatal shot , and the captain
urged him to enter the hospital for
treatment. Young Waugh refused and
added that he would feel better HOOII.
Captain Cotighey kept a watchful eye
over nim until breakfast had been fin
ished and then Waugh appeared to
have entirely recovered. About 9JO :
o'clock a shot rang out and the officers
quartered In the building rushed out
upon the veranda and saw the young
officer lying there gasping for breath.
An army revolver had ended his life.
He died within ten minutes. A mili
tary escort , made of infantry compan
ies from Hie Thirty-ninth and Sum-
meraH's artillery , with a troop of cav
alry , did military burial honors over
the body of the dead lieutenant at
Calttinba yesterday.
"Lieutenant T. M. Cobb , jr. , said : "A
more impetuously brave young ofllcer
I have never known. I have seen him
have his platoon into the hottest
of the fight and no one ever saw Dick
Waugh flinch. I know bis people in
Nebrasaka , and 1 can truthfully say
they have lost a noble son. ' "
