Daily Mail Claims to Hare Authority for
Making tho Announcement. . .
British Offer the Alternative of At
eeptlusr Conditions Laid Down
or Breaking Off tho
LONDON. April 18. The Dally Mall
claims to have authority to announce that
basis of pete have been practically agreed
on at Pretoria, but says that some little
time will elapse before the details ot the
plan can bo perfected.
The paper adds that upon Boding that
the British government refused on Wednes
day to modify Its terms with regard to
amnesty, banishment and a responsible
government, the Boer delegates met again
on Thursday.
The British decision, practically leaving
them the alternative of accepting the Brit
ish terms, or breaking up the conference
waa then communicated to them and the
delegates proved more reasonable. When
Lord M liner, the British high commissioner
In South Afrlcs, promised the delegates
ne or two seats In the executive council,
subject to the approval of the government
and pending the restorstlon ot a respon
sible government, they practically agreed
to accept the British terms.
Some details, contlnuea the Dally Mall,
which are not likely to create difficulty,
still remain to be settled. Lord MUncr
has summoned from Johannesburg an Aus
tralian expert, who Is to assist In estimating
the coat ot rebuilding and restocking the
Boer farms. The delegstes, concludes the
paper, have so far acted quite Independ
ently of their representatives In Holland.
Hsne Sauer, a loyalist Afrikander, speak
ing at Bradford tonight, waa not optimistic
concerning the peace negotiations. He said
be thought It quite probable that the Boers
would ask Great Britain for 50.000,000 or

90,000.000 and agree In turn to clear out
of South Africa altogether.
Serious differences. It Is said,
have arisen between the Transvaal
and Free 8tate delegates who are
discussing peace terms at Pretoria. Gen
eral Botha and Acting President Schalk
burger, it Is reported, have given the Free
State representatives until April 12 to
come to a decision, threatening that there
after the Transvaal delegation will con
tinue the peace negotiations Independently
of the Free 8tates delegates.
It Is further declared that Botha and
Schalkburger had practically agreed
upon trms for surrender prior to their
visit to Klerksdorp, but that out of loyalty
to their allies they Insisted on a confer
ence, though with slight bopee that their
views should be shared by General Dewet
and the other Free State leaders.
Insurgent Leader Agrees to Obey Mal
. var's Order for a Prompt
MANILA. April IS. Gonzales, the In
surgent leader, has agreed to obey Mal
vars order and will surrender. Oenerat
Bell wires that no Insurgents are left In
Batangaa or Laguna provinces. The sur
render of the Insurgents ot the island of
Samar has been postponed until April 20
on account ot the weather making their
movements difficult. -
General Chaffee has returned here from
Malabang, Island of Mindanao. Ha ssvs
the Dattos have not responded to his In
vitation to take part in a conference, but
the Datto Grande rame to the American
camp and through him Qeneral Chaffee sent
a message to the other Dattos. assuring
them of the friendly Intentions of the
United Ststes, but warning them that they
must deliver up the assassins ot the Amer
ican soldiers.
General Chaffee Is sending the transport
Hancock to Mindanao. In case the Dattos
resist, which seems probable, as they mutter
a total of 20.000. of whom 400 are armed
with rifles. The remainder are spearmen
and bolomen. These natives are a dtf
ferent breed of fighters from the Filipinos.
They are religious fanatics to whom death
while fighting la regarded as a being a
passport to heaven. The American officials
hope, however, to avert a crisis.
Lleeteaaat Day Says He Killed Spy

MANILA, April IS. The mixed court-
martial which tried Major Littleton W. T
Waller of the Marine corps on the charge
of executing natives ' without trial todav
began the trial ot Lieutenant H. A. Day cf
the Marine corps, on the same eharge,
Lieutenant Day testified in his own de
fense. He said the man shot January 19

ler'a otders, snd added:
I ordered Private Kresge to fire at his
head and ordered Meaee 10 fire at the

I saw a convulsive shudder of the man's
shoulders. placed my own revolver to his
forehead snd shot him dead. I ordered the
police to leave the body on the ground, as

Major Waller testified that he ordered
the shooting of sleven men January HO,
but denied ordering the execution ot a

Redmond Says Conspiracy- Exists In
England to Foment Lawless,
ness In Ireland.
LONDON. April 18. In the House of
Commons today John Redmond, the Irish
nationalist leader, speaking of the crimes
act proclamation Issued last night by the
lord lieutenant ot Ireland, Earl Cadogan,
declared that an Infamous conspiracy was
on foot in England to foment crime In Ire
land, where none existed. The stories ot
riots and outbreaks In Ireland were Infa
mous calumnies. The nationalists In Ire
land were only governed by a contemptible
minority. Thla statement waa cheered by
the Irish members.
A hundred men, continued Mr. Redmond,
stood ready to replace every man sent to
prison In thla struggle. They entreated
Mr. Wyndham. the chief secretary for Ire
land, to change his policy, but it he con
tinued they would meet him face to face
and give blow for blow. Their answer to
his coercion of Ireland would be to harden
heir hearts, strengthen their organisation
and compel redress.
Mr. Wyndham replied that while It was
true that there waa a comparative absence
In Ireland of crime against the person, the
Uvea of persons were made miserable by
Intimidation and boycotting. The govern
ment was not acting from political mo
tives, but as the result of a mass of In
formation laboriously collected and care
fully examined.
John Redmond and John Dillon have sent
a Joint cablegram to former Congressman
John F. Flnerty ot Chicago appealing for
American sympathy and support In the
struggle against coercion.

tion In the American meat supply the ac
tlou they petitioned was Imperative In or
der to prevent a meat famine during the
coronation of the king.
Resolutions similar to those adopted to
night will be presented at a meeting ot
representatives ot the meat trade from
120 cities ot the United Kingdom, which
will be held at Manchester April 22.
Replying to a question In the House of
Commons this evening, R. W. Haabury
president of the Board of Agriculture, said
the government had no reaaon to apprehend
a ssrlous meat shortage and that It could
not entertain a proposal to remove the re
strtctlons on cattle Imported from Canada.

ot the house, at a caucua held tonight, by
a very Urge majority, estimated at 2 to 1

the close the differences disappeared aad

the name ot the republican from whom
these assurances regarding the abandon
ment of the Crumpacker resolution came

Interests ot the states Involved to accept
the offer made, he stated that the agree
ment had not been positively accepted, and
for himself agreed to abide by the decision
of the caucua.
The democratic vote on Wednesday to
