Trying to Take the Boer Convojs-
Repulse'at Mafeking.
London, May 2.—it is difficult to
unravel the tangled stories coming
from the neighborhood of Thaban-
chu, but apparently the British
forces are engaged in a movement
having for its object the hemming
in of the Boers still in that district.
While Generals French and Rundle
are holding the Boers at Thaban-
chu, General Broadwood's cavalry
has been pushing on Hout nek in
the hope of intercepting the federal
convoys between Ladybrand and
Winburg. As Gen. Botha has been
reinforced there is every prospect of
sharp fighting.
The new scene of operations and
the general movements of the various columns are taken to indicate
that Lord Roberts is deploying his
armv preparatory to beginning his
northern march.
It now seems likely that it is the
commander-in-chief's intention to
advance simultaneously from Kimberly, Bloemfontein and Ladysmith,
with the. view of preventing the
Boers from concentrating their
forces at any given point.
Will Kndln Six Week*.
A dispatch from Bloemfontein,
dated yesterday, chronicles the prevailing opinion among the townspeople there than the war is not likely to last more that six weeks after
the British advance shall begin.
KrngerSays British .1111 hi Leave.
A dispatch from Pretoria gives
the text of President Kruger's proclamation, expelling British subjects
from the Transvaal.    It says:
"As numerous burghers insist
upon the removal of the British'and
as the government is desirous of
complying with the wishes of the
burghers and others favorable to
the republic, all Britishers residing
in the district and town of Pretoria
and the Witwaters Rand gold fields,
must leave the state within 36 hours
from noon April 30. Kxception will
be made in the case of those obtaining special permits."

Lord Roberts forwards a list of
Ian Hamilton's force on April 30 as
follows: Killed—Major Showers,

Wounded—Four officers and five
men. Missing—Two officers and
ten men.

A dispatch from Mafeking, describing the Boers attack on April
11, says:
"The bombardment of the Creti-
sots was the hottest of the siege.
Many shells entered the hospital
and women's laager. Under cover of
the artillery a large force commanded by Cronje the younger, including the German corps, advanced
close to Fort Abrams. The garrison lay low until the Boer force was
at close range, when they fired a
volley, killing five and wounding
many. The attack was repulsed.
The bombardment then ceased.
The Boers, under a Red Cross flag,
were permitted later to recover their

Windsor is in holiday attire today
and decorated from end to end, in

The naval men have been summoned to the palace to be inspected by
the queen. The band of the Grenadier Guards met the naval brigade
at the railroad station and played
them to the castle through cheering
throngs of people. Capt. Lambton
and the officers of the Powerful
were presented to her majesty, who
thanked Capt. Lambton and the
brigade for their noble services to
the empire. The captain replied that
what they had dune was nothing to
what the navy was prepared to do
for her majesty. The queen saw
the blue jackets entertained at dinner.

Thaba Nchu, May 2. Afternoon.
—General Hamilton's division   was
engaged yesterday and today in
forcing a passage northward. At
Houtnek the Boer front had a
line of bills commanding the sides
of tbe nek. ' The Canadians and
Gordons attacked the hill to the
left, and the Shropshires and Marshall's horse, supported by a battery, also made an attack on the
enemy, who eventually fled, leaving
many wounded, and the passage
was cleared.
The Boers on the mountain are
now shelling the outlying camp,
necessitating removal to another
place. The Boers have three guns
on the hill to the eastward of this
place, outside the range of the
British artillery. The Boer shelling is not doing any damage. The
enemy retained their positions and
the British are not attempting to
dislodge them.
General Hamilton, by reaching
Houtnek, after a full day's fighting,
secured the Thaba Nchu-Bloemfon-
tein road.

Re-Discovery of Letters of Christ and
Ring Agrippa.
New York, May 2.—The Herald
and the Journal and Advertiser
print today special cables from London and Rome respectively, which
say that two letters, one from King
Agrippa to Christ and the other
from the Savior to the king in reply— letters referred to by Eusebius
in the fourth century—have been
discovered after being lost 903
years. The letter trom King Agrippa to Christ reads:
"I have heard of Thee and the
cures wrought by Thee without
herb or medicine, for it is reported
that Thou restorest sight to the
blind and makest the lame walk,
cleanest the leper, raises! the dead,
castest out devils and unclean spirits and healest those that are tormented of diseases of a long continuance. Hearing ail this of Thee,
I was fully persuaded that Thou
art the very God come down from
heaven to do such miracles, or that
Thou art the Son of God and per-
formest them. Therefore I have sent
Thee a few lines entreating Thee to
come hither and cure my diseases.
Besides, hearing that the Jews murmur against Thee and continue to
do Thee mischief, I invite Thee to
my city, which is but a little one,
but is beautiful and suffiient to entertain us both."
. Christ's reply to the above reads:
"Blessed art thou for believing
Me, whom thou hast not seen, for
it is written of Me that they that
have seen Me shall not believe, and
they that have not seen Me shall
believe and be saved. But concerning the matter thou hast written
about, this is to acquaint thee that
all things for which I was sent
hither must be fulfilled and then 1
shall be taken up and return to
Him that sent me. But after My
ascension I will send one of My disciples that shall cure thee of thy
distemper and give life to all them
that are with thee."
The Journal and Advertiser says:
"The special cable from Rome
purports to prove the truth of a tradition that is almost as ancient as
Christianity. Of course the Journal
cannot vouch for the truth of the
statements which were made yesterday, April 30, by Professor Broh-
mann of the Vienna university, to
the Archeological congress in Rome,
but they are of intense interest."

H.<   niNF. HAN A > Alt HOW ESCAPE
Forest Fire   Almost  Heaehc* Powder
House and Shaft House.
Grand Forks, May 2.—The office,
shaft and powder houses of the B.
C. mine in Summit camp had a narrow escape from destruction by fire
yesterday. A heap of brush along
the railway spur near the dump was
being burned, and the sparks carried by the wind ignited the adjacent dry grass, trees, cordwood,
stumps etc. Soon it extended over
several acres. The heat was terrific.
All the miners above ground were
formed into a bucket brigade, directed Ijy Superintent Scrafford and
Accountant Mackintosh.
A fire hose did good service but
the flames were not checked until
they had reached within twenty feet
of the powder house, where thou -
sands of pounds of explosives were
stored. One shack was destroyed,
and the occupant, a miner, had a
narrow escape. Standing on thc
spur were a number ol cars loaded
with dynamite. They received a
scorching, but were shifted down
the track in time.
After half an hours work the
wind shifted in an opposite direction. The tire then swept through
dry trees and   finally   exhausted   it
self in the green  timber.    Several
acres were swept over.
At one time it looked as though
the fire would extend across the
hill to Summit city. Mr. Mackintosh sent a warning and Colonel
Haywood and the inhabitants turned out prepared for any emergency.
In the debate in parliament on
the amendment to the Cape Scott &
Comox railroad bill excluding Chinese and Japanese from employment
on the road, Mr. Bell, of Prince
Edward Island, said:
"It would be contrary to our interests to do what would be construed as an act of hostility by the
people of either country, and this
house ought to hesitate before committing itself to an act which would
involve a policy of hostility against
any country with which we have
trade relations, and with which we
hope to have better trade relations
in the future.
"There is another reason. Thc
Canadian Pacific railway has been
built across this country largely by
Chinese labor. At any rate, its
construction has been expedited by
Chinese labor. All the railways
across the American continent have
Already 137 Bodies Have Been Taken
From Utah Goal Mine.
been built largely by Chinese labor.
These Chinese, say what you like
about them,have been a great benefit to this continent, and, I think,
it would be ungrateful on our part,
not to recognize the benefit these
people have done in the past, and
attempt to exclude them from
working on the construction of
railways. I do not think it will be
in the interests of the country or
even the province of British Columbia, to take the step proposed
by this amendment, and for these
reasons I am opposed to it."
In the language of the street, this
is all tommyrot. In the first place,
there is no reason to believe that, if
the matter were taken up properly
by the Dominion and imperial governments, any serious feeling of
hostility would result in China and
Japan. The United States excludes Chinese, but is still on friendly terms with China, their citizens
obtaining railroad and other concessions there. If the British government goes about exclusion in a
proper manner, so that the Chinese
and Japanese governments will not
regard its action as a slap in the
face, no hostile feeling would ensue.
As to the alleged debt of gratitude due the Chinese for building
the C. P. R., that is a fiction.
While the Chinese were paid lower
wages than are current in this country for white men, they were paid
much more than they would have
received in their own country. They
got their money and most of them
took it back to China and no gratitude goes along with it. Certainly,
none is due those who are coming
in now. If there should beany-
shortage of labor in Canada, it can
be made up in the United Kingdom
or the United States, among white
The trouble with Mr. Bell and
men from his section is that they
know nothing about the Chinese
question from personal observation
and have their head full of fine-spun
ideas which they would promptly'
abandon, if called upon to put them
in practice for themselves. It is j
simply a question whether British
Columbia shall be a British colony
or a colony where the white men
shall be gradually swamped by a
growing population of an inferior,
alien civilization, which neither
would nor should become amalgamated with our own.

Brandford, Ont., May i.— Rev.
Henry lleadley, of the Anglican
church in this city, left here yesterday for Rossland B. C. where he
intends to reside.
Salt Lake. Utah, May a.—-Two
hundred or more lives were lost in
the explosion in mine No. 4 of t' e
Pleasant Valley Coal company yesterday at Schofield, Utah. Or.e
hundred and thirty-seven bodies-
have already been recovered. The
work of rescuers is still proceeding
although there is no hope that any
of the men who are unaccounted fot
escaped death. The scene ot the
disaster is just outside this place on
the line of the Rio Grande Western
The explosion which occured in
the winter quarters of the mines
is attributed by some to the blowing
up of a number of cans of blasting
powder. A special train was sent
from Salt Lake bearing.Superinten-
dent Sharpe, of the coal company,
Superintendent Wilby of the railroad company, and some^doctors.
As fast as bodies are reached
they are taken to the boarding
houses and other company buildings, where they are dressed and
prepared for the coroner's inquest.
These buildings are numerous
and in each'are from io to 15 bodies which Jare laid in long rows.
To those which have been identified are tags with names and
addresses. These await the coming of relatives or friends. Two
hundred coffins have been ordered
through local undertakers to be
sent at once to the scene of thc

The reports that Russia has determined to call upon Great Britain
to make peace in South Africa,
threatening in case of refusal, to occupy Cabul and Herat, are taken
seriously by some newspapers.
They assume that, because a quarter of a million British troops are
occupied in South Africa, Russia
would have a walk-over in the execution of her designs in Asia.
These alarmists little know the

Turkey Will Refuse to Yield to America's Ultimatum.
Constantinople, April 27.—The
United States legation has not yet
received.'*he porte's answer to the
Kded to Tewfik Pasha, the
K foreign minister, by the
American charge d'affaires, regarding the indemnity claims, and the
impression is gaining ground that
the Only will be in the negative.
The general opinion is that, without
a Hy of totce, the porte certainly will not pay the claims, because
it wishes to show the Moslem world
that it only yields to force.
It is considered here that a simple rupture of diplomatic relation s
wilt render the porte easier to deal
wifd); not a rupture of formal relations is not thought necessary, as
the sending of a warship to a Mediterranean port would suffice to obtain a settlement of the matter in
OSS than 24 hours. The same
proposition made to the United
States for a settlement of the indemnity question by an order for a
warship, in the price of which the
indemnity should be included, was
formerly made to France and Italy,
but M. Constance and Senor Pansa
rejected the proposition.

comments upon the attitude of Turkey in this affair are causing great
irritation at Yildiz Kiosk.

Treves, a famous surgeon, who has
just returned from thc war, was
entertained, together with Sir Win.
McCormaek, at a banquet of the
Reform club Saturday night pic-
sided over by Lord Rosebery, says
a London cable. Mr. Treves look
occasion to administer a stinging
rebuke to the "smart" women suffering from "khaki fever," who
have gone as alleged nurses to the
front.     He said:
4,So far as the sick are concerned,
there arc only two plagues in South
Africa—the plague of llies, and the
plague of women. The flies we
get rid of by horsewhips, and Other
appliances, and the llies al least
depart at night. But the women
are absolutely and really a terror.
They came out in the guise ol
amateur nurses, after having exhausted every other form of excitement. Considering that we
are engaged in a war, the number
of well-dressed ladies at Capetown
anil elsewhere giving pii nics is a
blot on the campaign."
This onslaught on t li*.- fad of society electrified the audience and  is
certain    to   provoke  hitler   rccrimi-

The latest news received here from

that* though the Boers have evacuated Thabanchu, they have done so
to occupy stronger positions. General Dewel: on April 29 made an
effort to turn General French's eastern flank and was foiled by the cavalry, only after vigorous maneuvering. The Boers hold the ridges to
the eastward, whence they will
probably fall back when the pressure of superior numbers increases.
The British casualties sustained during the Thabanchu fighting were
General French's object, now
that all chance of catching the main
bodies of the burghers has disappeared, is to harrass the Boers and
prevent any well-organized   retreat.

New York, May 1.—The Times
todav prints a long article of startling importance. It professes to
have found the motive which
urged Secretary of the War Root,
at the Grant dinner of last week,
to hint at the possibility of the
Uuited States being foiced to go
to war to maintain the Monroe
doctrine. It is said that the facts
which led up to Mr. Root's remark,
are contained in an official report
just submitted to the Danish government by Captain W. Von Christmas Birchinck-Holmfoeld. The
captain was the special envoy of
his government to negotiate the
sale of the islands to the United
States, and his report, which has
been put in the hands of Mr. Hoer-
rmg, the prime minister and minister of finance, states that the
failure of the negotiations is due to
the interference of Henry H. Rogers, one of the directors of the
Standard Oil company,
According to the Times, the first
appearance of Mr. Rogers in tbe
Danish West Indies was about
three years ago, just prior to the
breaking out oi the war with Spain.
Mr. Rogers, by letter and through
the agents of tbe Standard Oil
company in Denmark, among them
Kiel S. Green, made a proposition
to the Danish government lhat, for
a consideration of ten per cent of
the purchase price, he would undertake the sale of the Danish West
Indian islands, St. John, St. Croix
and St. Thomas, to the United
States. Mr. Rogers stated to the
Danish government that he was in
a position to do what he proposed,
on account of his influence and the
influence of his company with United States senators.
After an investigation, Mr. Hoer-
ring called together a council of
some of the most prominent members of the Danish parliament and
a number of prominent business
men of Copenhagen. Among the
latter was C. W. Hagerman, a
lormer resident of the United States
and an old friend of Mr. Rogers.
Hagerman impressed upon the
council the strength of Mr. Rogers'
claim, and it was accordingly decided to give Rogers permission to
act in the matter as the representative of the Danish government, but
without any billet to that effect,
Then Mr. Rogers, it is asserted,
went on with the negotiations till
the breaking out of the Spanish
war stopped them.
But in the early part oi lSqq,
Captain Christmas was approached
by a syndicate oi Germans, who
asked him to use his influence in
Copenhagen to obtain from the
Danish government a contract with
Germany, by which the latter could
purchase the island of St. John.
Captain Christmas asserted that
this would be next to impossible.
The United States would neither
allow Denmark to sell the island to
a foreign power, nor would it allow
Germany to purchase it, because of
the Monroe doctrine. He then laid
the matter before hi- government,
the outcome being that the permission    was    denied     0.1     diplomatic
grounds, the Danish government
recognizing that, should any complications   arise,   the   sale   of   the
islands to the United  Slates   would
be next to impossible, This led to
Captain Christmas coming to America as the authorized agent of the
Danish government lor the sale ol
the islands.
It is Impending on the New York
Central System.
New York, April 30.—Commissioner Francis Deleganty, of the
state board of mediation, arrived in
this city from Buffalo this morning
to confer with Superintendent
Wyatt, of the New York Central
railroad, in the hope of preventing
a general strike on the Central
system. He is reported to have
"The situation is extremely
serious. The only hope I have of a
general strike being avoided is the
making of concessions by the officials of the Central. Unless they
meet the demands of the men, there
will be a general strike. I can say
nothing further until I have seen
Superintendent Wyatt."
All of the employees of the New
York Central were reticent. Many
of them declared that they had no
grievances and that the conductors
and trainmen were not regularly
organized, their organization having been broken up by the big
strike on the Central system.
