ENGLAND NOT RESPONSIBLE.
The Advance Into the Transvaal Un
Chicago, Jan 3, J. B. Weinberg, of
Johannesburg, who is at presensojourn-
ing in this city, says that the. invasion
of the Transvaal was in no sense an
effort on the part of England to annex
the celebrated South African gold fields.
The people of Johannesburg would fight
to a man against coming under British
"When the Transvaal was unknown
for its riches in gold and diamonds,"
Mr. Weinberg said, "the laws concern
ing the naturalization of newcomers were
the same as in the Orange Free State,
and very similar to naturalization laws
of the United States. When the country
began to fill up with miners and people
interested in the gold and diamond in
dnstries, the Boers changed the laws and
made it impossible for anyone to become
naturalized. Then a high taritt was
placed on everything the Boers were not
likely to use. Particular enmity was
shown to the mining industries. In this
way the republic succeeded in levying
fully 90 per cent of the taxes on the new
population,' which was denied citizen
ship, in order to prevent newcomers
from making an effort to equalize the
"It was five years ago that the nation
al union, to remove these gross abuses,
was organized at Johanesbnrg. It took
in its membership all the more progres
sive mining men, many of whom were
Americans and Germans, who would bit
' terly oppose any attempt on the part of
England to annex the countrv. Even
the British residents would oppose any
scheme for the country's subjugation
In my opinion the national union has
given np peaceful means for ' obtaining
reform, and is calling Dr. Jamieson to
help its members overturn the republic.
. After trying all these five years to secure
some concessions from the Boers, the
national union has doubtless concluded
they will never make any headway until
the old government is overturned. That,
it seems to me, is all that Dr. Jamieson 'a
invasion means. He has evidently de
termined that" he will aid the foreign
element in upsetting the Boer govern
ment, and the next that will be heard of
it will be its accomplishment. The
movement has been on foot for some
time, and the doctor will not stop half
wav when once Btarted."

An Old Friend Beard From.
Oneff Capt. J.W. Lewis' friends in
Kentucky has been heard from in a
manner very gratifying to that gentle
man. At the recent meeting of the G.
A. K. in J&.entucKv, uoi. it. ai. is-eny
was. elected department commander of
the Kentucky division, and one of his
first acts was to appoint Captain Lewis
an aid-de-camp on his staff, an honor
much appreciated because it came un
sought. Colonel Kelly and Captain
Lewis served together during ths war,
and the following clipping from yester
day's Oregonian shows the possible
honors in store for the distinguished
Kentuckian : i
Among the many prominent Republi
cans who have been named as possible
candidates for the United States senator
ship from Kentucky, is Colonel, R. M.
Kelly, the editor-in-chief of the Louis
ville Commercial. Colonel Kellv is one
of the brainiest men in the Republican
party in Kentucky, and possibly the
best posted on national affaire. His
election to the position of department
commander of the Kentucky division of
the G. A. Pi. attests to bis popularity,
and there are hundreds of his comrades
anxious to have him enter the senatorial
race and be elected to that position.
Mr. Smith French brought to The
Chbonicle office today a sample of the
Kaffir corn, which is creating something
of a stir in the agricultural world. This
corn is said to be well suited for dry cli
mates and to not only provide good feed
for horses and cattle, but to be ground
into flour, from which excellent bread
can be made. Tomorrow The Chbon
icle will publish an article upon the
subject of the Kaffir corn. The subject
is one of real interest to the farmers of
Eastern Oregon. Mr. D. M. French,
who leaves Wednesday (o attend a meet
ing of the regents of the State Agricul
tural school, will ask that experiments
be tried in growing Kaffir tTsee whether
it will justify all that has been said
about it. 2.

PRESIDENT' AND THE SYNDICATE
A. Rapture Between Them Because of
the Embarrassment Caused by ,
the tatter's Negotiations. -
New Yokk, Jan. 4. A special to the
World from Washington says it is given
out by a senator, who has on previous
occasions represented the administra
tion, that the president has definitely
broken with the Morgan syndicate. Mr,
Cleveland, ho the senators say, is in
tensely anger with Morgan, and declares
that the syndicate's action in preparing
to take a loan was entirely unauthorized,
and has greatly embarrassed the govern
ment. There will be no bond call, it is
said, till congress has a chance to act,
4tnd then it will be a public loan, if the
piesident is able to fellow his will.

Salt Lake, Jan. 6. Another state has

Among those who took part in the cere
monies were many of the old pioneers of

dangers of frontier life to lay the founda

- The Wheat "Situation.
The first of the year finds the wheat
situation not meeting expectations,
The expected high prices have not come
nor cant be said that the indications
are bright, at the present, of any im
mediate rise, While it is true that both
buyers and. sellers are disappointed at
the way things are going, yet it's early in
the .fight and a month- or two amy see a
difference. A European war, .while it
would mean misery on the other side of -the
Atlantic, would be a blessing to the
American farmer. The following, taken
from the Commercial Review, gives an
intelligent view of the situation in Port-
mna : .
Five months of the present cereal year
have passed and txporters have die- '
patched fortv-three vessels, containim;
3,533,721 bushels of wheat and 100,908
barrels of flour to European ports', and
there is still one-half of the present crop
in the country. This does not include
China and tvin Francisco shipments
The obstinacy of holders has been clearly .
shown when wheat was selling at 54c .
per bushel, a great many unloaded tfieir
holdings, the majority held on for higher
prices; at that time we stated, that the
exporters here were paying all the stuff
was worth, and we were accuced cf
standing ' in with them. Now Walla
Walla wheat is worth about 50c, and
possibly some could get as much as 51c
for good round lots, and the prospect for
higher prices seems dim. From the pres
ent outlook ot the situation we would
not be surprised to see prices go still
lower. There is nothing as yet to make
the same advance, though earlier in tbe
season we bad hopes that prices would be
firmer by the first of the year. The out
look then was better, and we end our
selves mistaken, with many others. As
formerly stated in these columns, ex
porters had all the wheat for loading re- ,
quirements to Jan. 1, they saw no ne
cessity to increase their bids for wheat,
and that by the turn of the . year '
this port would be fully cleaned up
with engaged ships, our predictions have
proved true: tbe ships now ir port are '
all finishing, and exporters are not in
need of any wheat for the present, and "'
what ships are likely to arrive will have '
their wants quicklv filled. Tonnage due '"
