Transvaal Must Comply With England's
Every Demand or a Hot War Will
Follow Kruger's Resignation May
Sot Be Accepted.
CArE Town, July 25. Advices have
been received here confirming the report
that President Kruger has resigned.
Sews Kept Secret.
London, July 25. The Johannesburg
correspondent at the Standard says:
"President Kruger sent a letter to the
volksraad resigning the presidency in
consequence of the refusal to give him a
freehand ae to the dynamite monopoly.
He attended the meeting of the volksraad
this afternoon, during the consideration
of his letter. It is not known yet whether
his resignation was Conditional. The
news was kept secret at Pretoria."
Salisbury May Resign.
New Yokk, July 25. A dispatch to
the Times from London says : The at
tention of all England is again turned
toward the Transvaal. The Times says
Premier Schreiner, of Cape Colony, can
not incite Kruger to mako further con
cessions. Much unrest is ru annealed here,
and this is not likely to be lessoned in
the next few days. An authority of the
highest character made the following
statement today :
"Unless every demand of England be
I complied with, there will be war. This
has been the intention of the government
from the outset. Milmer was sent to
I South Africa for the purpose of establish
ing suzerainty of England, not only In
foreign, but in domestic affairs. Tho
Uitlanders' desires were thoroughly con
sidered and decided to be reasonable. If
Milner's demands are granted, it will es
tablish English rights to interfere In the
domestic affairs of the Transvaal ; 'f not.
there will be war.
"Lord Salisbury's resignation may be
j expected within a few months. His wife's
illness may be given as the cause. lie
j is tired of the game and anxious to re
tire. "Every little detail of the campaign
has been mapped out. It will not be a
i repetition of former flirhts with the
Boers. It will be rather campaign on
the lines of Kitchener's advance in the
Soudan. In the coming conflict, the
hole British empire will take part. The
English volunteers have been sounded.
nd thry are ready. Australia, New
Zealand, Canada and India have been
heard from and will be called upon."

Contractors arc Dismayed at
Chicago, July 26. A Times-Herald

Near Sheffield, in P.areau county,
several miles beyond tho junction w th
the Sterling feeder of the canal, the big
steam shovels were at work on a low
stretch of ground where the water had
been troublesome. Below the solt
super-strata of earth was a bed of hard-
pan and whtn this was through the
water suddenly vanished. Later it was
found that the ground for a hundred
feet around where the big shovel stood
had sunk ten feet.
Subsequent borings brought to light
the fact that no Eolid bottom existed for
a depth of forty-two feet below the level
of the hardpan. Quicksilver in the soil
is thought to be the reason for this
shrinking of the ground, and the same
trouble has often been experienced In

talions in close column. Although the
rtgiment had not held a dress parade or
battalion drill for five months, it ac
quitted itself splendidly and elicited
highly favorable comments from aritv
officers present. At Manila it was freely
admitted that the Oregon regiment gave
the best drees parades there, excelling
even the Fourteenth infantry, the best
regular regiment there. There is pro
bably not a regiment now in the service
that can equal it In this respect. After
the parade the regiment was reviewed by
General Beebe and staff, and then it
marched in review, twenty-four files

An Odd Service Final Leave-taking of
the Friends of the Dead
Nkw Yokk, July 20. The funeral of
the late Robert G. Ingersoll took place
this afternoon from Walaton, Dobbs Fer
ry. No clergyman was present to con
duct the services ; there was no music
and no Dallbearers. The body lay on a
cot in the room where he died. It was
enshrouded In white, and just one red
rose was placed on the breast. About
the cot were banks of floral tributes sent
by fri.nlf, wreaths and bunches of
John Claik RiJpath, in a voice full
of emotion said : "My friends, it Is a
very sad duty to read In the presence of
the dead the last poem written by Col.
Hubert G. Ingersoll, entitled 'Declaration
of the Freo.' This poem Colonel Inger
soll had read and altered In some of its
parts only a few hours before he was
Major O.J. Smj the, who resides in
Dobbs Ferry, and who was a close per
sonal friend of Colonel Ingersoll, then,
without preliminary words, read another
extract from Colonel Ingersoll's writings,
entitled "My Religion." Dr. John
Elliott, of New York, read the funeral
oration delivered by Colonel Ingersoll
over his brother's dead body.
This concluded the short and simple
services. Nearly all present th'n took a
parting look at the dead and passed out.
After they had gone, Mr. Itoust arose
from bis chair, and as he la totally blind,
passed his hand over the face of his
parted friend and said: "Perhaps he is
better now. No one can understand It."
Mrs. Ingersoll said to him: "The
Colonol wanted you to put your hand
upon his heart," and suiting the action
to the word, she directed his band to the
left breast of the deceased.
Mr. Houss asked what she
was go: 11
to do with the remains.
"I can't give him op," she said. "I
can't put him in the ground. I can't
bear to think of it. We're going to bring
him back home."
The body mill probably be taken to
Fresh Tond Thur'day for cremation, but
this arrangement is subject to change.
During the morning there were many
visitors to look upon the face of the de
ceased. Among them were several old
colored servants of the family, who had
come from Washington, and took four
days off and paid their expenses to do
honor to their great benefactor. Among
these were two former butlers of the
family. One old man, who was a
baggage man on the railroad, came Irom
down on Long island. Others come from
Chicago, Syracuse and Buffalo.

For id Editor to Kccnmracnit Patent
From Sylvan Valley
Il may be a question whether the
editor of a newspaper has the right to
publicly recommend any of the various
proprietary medicines which flood the
market, yet as a preventive of suffering
we feel it a duty to say a good word for
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
rhoea Remedy. We have known and
used this medicine in our family lor
twenty years and haye always found it
reliable. In many cases a dose of this
remedy would save hours of suffering
while a physician is awaited. We do
not believe In depending implicitly on
any medicine for a enre, but we do
believe tnat if a bottle of Chamberlain's
Diarrhoea Remedy was kept on hand
and administered at tha inception of an
attack, much suffering might lie avoided
and in very many cases the presence of
a physician would not be required. At
least this has been our experience
during the past twenty years. For sale
