a complete surprise to the Boer circles here.
It was surmised that the step taken was

Lord Kitchener to communicate the text
of the Anglo-Dutch notes to the Boer
Regarding the fears, expressed In the
British press that the Boer generals would
not be inclined to recognize the authority
of the civil government of the South African
republics in case the latter decided to open
peace negotiations, well Informed persons
here doclare that such apprehension Is un
founded. Tbey point out that the Boer
civil and military authorities have always
worked In perfect harmony and that Mr.
Schalkburgher and the government could
not have proceeded to the Orange River
colony via Mlddleburg and Pretoria without
at least the consent f General Botha.
In conclusion it Is said that the final
decision as to whether serious peace over
tures shall be msde rests entirely in the
hands of the Burghers, who will have to
decide upon It at a public meeting.
Mr. Kruger has not yet received any tele,

mands RpKardlna; Ootslde Work.
A committee of the Painters' union met
the master painters last night and discussed
the proposed advance in the scale of wages,
amounting to 2H cents an hour, beginning
April 1. The masters agreed to the In

the union men demurred.
The masters want the union men to agree
to work for no less than 60 cents an hour

double time for all night and Sunday work
done for outsiders. The scale is now 37',4
cents an hour and the Increase will make
It 40 cents. Overtime Is charged at price

Two hundred and eighty-seven men in
the Painters' union are affected by the

Far Protection of Nebraska.
At a conference of Representatives Ne

bill pending In th house, the Nebraska del
egation succeeded in Inducing Mondell of
Wyoming and Shafroth of Colorado to sup
port an amendment to the bill which, tf
carried, will give th measure the united
support of the Nebraska delegation. The
amendment Is of vital Importance to Ne
braska and provides that no water shall be
diverted by any of th public works to b
constructed as provided in the bill from tb
watersheds ot the North and South Platte.
This, It is contended, will insure Ne
braska against any water famine being
caused by it use In Colorado and Wyom
ing and will prohibit these states from mis
appropriation of waters in tb streams
named to the detriment of settlers living
below Colorado and Wyoming.

CONFER WITH THE PRESIDENT
House Members' Discuss Cuban Couditioua
at Roosevelt's Bequest.
CHIEF EXECUTIVE FAVORS RECIPROCITY
While Not Committing Himself to Any
I'oaltlie Form of Settlement Prea
- Ident Hint at Feasible
WASHINGTON. March 24. A conference
was held at the White House this afternoon
between the president and seven of th
republican members of the bouse of repre
sentatives which have been foremost In op
posing the plan c." Cuban reciprocity urged
by the ways and .means committee and un
derstood to have the support of the ad
ministration. The membcra who called were Representa
tives Tawney and Morris of Minnesota,
Dick of Ohio, William A. Smith of Michi
gan, Metcalf of California and Dayton ot
Wtst Virginia. The call waa at the request
of the president, who desired an trhmi
of views to th end that harmonious action
mignt be secured In such steps as are taken
In behalf of Cuba. Aa Oenersl Wnnri has
arrived here from Cuba, and as several
members of the cabinet were at the White
House while the congressmen were thefe, a
report Calned circulation that Secret. r
Root and General Wood were present during
tne eonterence. This, however, was not
the case as the president and the congress
men remained alone in the cabinet room for
the hour and a halt that they were to
gether; Talk Take Wide Range.
The talk took a wide range, covering the
conditions In Cuba, what should be done
to meet these conditions and also the ques
tion of harmonizing conflicting Interests
o mat there might be unanimity of action
on the part of the republicans In congress.
tl waa stated arterwsrds by those who
tad participated in the conference that It
was of the most pleasant character, and
that there was not tha remotest sn.vp.tlnn
on the part of the chief executive which
could be construed as seeklna t n tiraa them
to yield their personal convictions.
ine caller were frank to concede that
they found the president desirous of extend
ing effective relief to Cuba by tho reci
procity plan, in this connection it was
stated the president drew attention m h
fact that the Sibley amendment limiting
tne reciprocity period to December 1, 1903,
gave the Payne bill a rather one-sided
aspect, ss it asked Cuba to adnnt nnr
naturalization and immigration laws and
give us tarin concessions without limit of
time, and In return to e-lve to Cuha t.i-itf
concessions limited to about a year and a
Cnba Get Short End.
Some of the congressmen credent wera In
cllned to admit that we were aaklnr a a-nnrt
deal from Cuba In return for tha little. a
would grant . her. The Interchange of
views oecame quite general, there being
notning in the way of definite propositions
one way or the other, but merely an agree
able expression of oninlon as to what was
best to be done under the circumstances of
tne situation. la the course of thin n.
eral talk the suggestion was made that if
me rayne bill had been modified so as to
tana- on the differential on refined mnr
some of the grounds of opposition might
uav Deen removed. However, there wss
no request, so far as can ha learn h.
the bill be amended In this particular at
mo present stage. The plan of rebate,
which was urged at one time, also came
in for discussion and exnlanation
At the conclusion of the conference the
general unaerstaodlng was reached that
any statements made to tha nnhti
be to the general effect that no conclusions
were reacnea and that the conference was
confined to a general interchange of views.
It la understood that the nmatrfanr vsL'tll
