Havana Jan. 2. An engagement

THE AFRICAN INVASION.
Tun Hague, Jan. 2. Tho minister
of tho Transvaal republic left hero for
Bcrljn in order, it Is believed, to
make strong representations to tho
German government on tho subject of
the invasion or tho Transvaal republic
by tho forces of the British South
Tho Globe says:
A. rumor has reached London that
Dr. Jamicson hasarrlved at Johannes
burg and a cablo dispatch has reached
here from Pretoria which saysa rising
lias occurred at Johannesburg. It Is
added that 1100 more armed men be
longing to tho British chartered corn
pays, crossed tho frontier yesterday
and that President Kruger is determ
ined to defeat the Invaders hx force of
arms. A conflict between tho Boers
and the EngllsJ is expected tomorrow.
It Is stated that President Kruger
has telegraphed to Colonel Secretary
Chamberlain pledging his government
that the Boers shall temporarily
adopt a passive attitude toward Dr.
Jamicson's force, on its arrival out
sldo of Johannesburg. Tho Important
feature of this arrangement between
Mr. Chamberlain and President
Kruger Is, that all responsibility for
tho hostility will rest with tho
Chartered South African Co.
Berlin. Tho Vosslsho Zcitung
says: The action of Dr. Jamicson can
not bo tolerated. It Is tho duty of
tho German government to immedi
ately take energetic Bteps to protect
endangered German Interests and at
the same tlmo thoso of our kinsmen,
tho Boers. It is impossible to protest
too stronglyagalnst tills act of vio
lence on the part of the British.

to work In every way possible to

MRS. DAVIDSON'S PAST.
SOMETHING OF THE WOMAN'S CAREER
WHILE IN 110STON.
Boston, Jan. 2. Further Investiga
tion Into tho case of Mrs. Davidson, of
San Francisco, charged with wrong
doing by tho Rev. Charles 0. Brown,
of that city, brings to light the fact
that Mrs. Davidson did onco llvo In
Boston, nnd that she had an Interest
ing career, In which sho managed to
get considerable money from one per
son beforo sho loft tho city. In 1800
and 1801, Mrs. Davidson was a mem
ber of Nchcrulah Boynton's Congrega
tion, at the Union church, and later
became a prominent member of the
Tremont Temple congregation. At
the tlmo she was peddling starch, and
by hcrcloqucnco alio sold a large stock,
with good profits. Many friends,
among whom was Mrs. Sarah J.
Stevens, an old lady about 80 years of
age, became deeply Interested In Mrs.
Davidson and her alleged religious
work. Mrs. Stevens had considerable
money Invested in bonds, and when
these were called In and paid Mrs.
Davidson learned of the amount of
ready cash held by "her friend, and per
suaded Mrs. Stevens to loan her $2800,
on a note at 4 iter cent, to enable Mrs.
Davidson to start In the dressmaking
business. The note was payablo In 10
years. Soon afterward, wanting more
money, sho persuaded Mrs. Stevens to
loan her $2000 more, also on n 10-year
note, but this tlmo at .1 per cent.
Mrs. Davidson wcjitto Chicago In
1893, and from thcrejto San Francisco.
