BRITISH SUBMIT u .TUM.
London Dally Mall Predicts Its Ac
ceptance by Boers Important Dis
patches Received From Lord Mllner
and General Kitchener.
London , May 23. The Dally Chron
icle this morning claims authority to
say that peace In South Africa Is prac
tically assured. This la also the gen
eral Impression with the ether news
papers and the public , although the
former do not go so far as the asser
tion published by the Chronicle.
It Is understood that Important dis
patches were received yesterday from
Lord Mllner , the British hli'h com
mlssloner In South Africa , and from
I > lrd Kitchener , but nothing can bo
ascertained as to the nature of the
contents of these dispatches. The
fact that the cabinet was summoned
so quickly after the arrival of the
delegates at Pretoria Is regarded as a
good augury , as the discussions nt
Pretoria could only have commenced
The cabinet will meet late this aft
ernoon In order to enable the minis
ters who are at a distance to reach
London In time for the meeting.
Cabling from Pretoria , the corre
spondent of the Times says the Doer
meeting there Is not necessarily final
and It Is believed the Boer delegates ,
after obtaining Information on certain
points , will return to Vereenlglng.
The Dally Mall says it understands
that owing to the protracted haggling
of the Boer leaders at Pretoria. Great
Britain has presented them with what
Is practically an ultimatum , their re
ply to which is awaited and which it
Is expected they will accept.

exchange of greetings between the
representatives of the two nations.
After the president's reception at the
white house , the French visitors ex
changed calls with members of the

People In a State of Panic and Many
Throw Themselves Into the Sea.
Second Eruption of Mont Pelee
More Violent Than First.
Paris , May 23. A dispatch from
Fort do Franco , Martinique , published
this morning In Lu Journal , says the
solo Idea of the Inhabitants Is
lllght , that many of them have become
IiiHiino and that some of the people
throw themselves into the sea. The
lopulatlon of the Grande Rlvleru dls-
.rlct Is deserted and assistance cannot
reach them. In conclusion , Lo Jour
nal's correspondent says Uere are
vague rumors at Fort do Franco of
The second eruption of Mont Peluo ,
which occurred Tuesday , la said to
have been many times more violent
than the fatal explosion which effaced
the city of St. iViorro nnd swept Its
30,000 people from the earth. The

naco. The bombardment of the vol
cano is tcrrlfio.

HOAR URGES WITHDRAWAL.
Massachusetts Senator Makes Notable
Speech on Philippine Question.
Washington , May 23. A notable
contribution to the discussion of the
Philippine question was made in the
senate yesterday by Hoar ( Mass. ) .
His views on the subject are well un
derstood , but his expression of them
was profoundly Interesting and cycn
Impressive. When the venerable bc
ator began to speak every senator at
the oapltol was in his seat and for
the two hours nnd a half his address
consigned , he was accorded the most
careful attention , not only by his col
leagues on the floor , but also by the
people In the thronged galleries.
Hoar confined himself closely to his
manuscript. He denounced the atti
tude of the government In the Philip
pines as one of the most wicked and
foolish chapters in American history.
He urged that the United Stacs with
draw from the Islands and permit the
people to erect their own government ,
as had been done In Cuba. He ar
raigned General Funston for the methods
ods pursued In tyie capture of Agutn
aldo and Intimated strongly that had
the senate been aware of the facts ,
Funston might not have been con
firmed In his recent promotion. He
hoped that as the Irrevocable step had
not been taken by the United States ,
better counsels would yet prevail and
that tills government would leave the
Philippines. Spontaneous applause
swept over the senate and the gal
leries at the conclusion of the speech.
Such a demonstration Is very unusual
on the floor of the senate. So pro
nounced was It that the presiding offi
cer called the attention of senators to
the rule prohibiting any expression
of approval or disapproval.
Teller ( Colo. ) delivered a speech In
the nature of a history of the legisla
tive proceedings through which the
new Cuban republic was erected.
REQUIRE EDUCATIONAL TEST.
House Members Put Up Bars to
Washington , May 23. The house
yesterday resumed discussion of the
Immigration bill. Almost the entire
day was taken up with the amendment
offered by Underwood ( Ala. ) , requir
ing an educational test for Immigrants
to this country. It was adopted. The
house disagreed to the amendments
of the senate to the omnibus public
building bill nnd It was sent to con
ference. An , amendment to the rules
was adopted requiring that confer
ence reports should be printed In the
Congressional Record before being
presented to the house.
