Talk A dispatch from London
Of states a Btrong belief pre
Peace. vailed in financial circles
here today that negotiations
for peace had been reopened between
the leading Boers and the British gov
ernment. South African stocks rose in
sympathy with the reports. The ex
act nature of what was going on is not
known, but a representative of the As
sociated Press learned that leading
Boers had indirectly approached . the
government, protesting against the ap
propriation of farms in the Transvaal or
Orange river colonies by British settlers,
which system is now rapidly being
pushed, and that strong influence had
been brought to bear on Boer leaders to
save at least a vestige of the property
for their followers. Whether what is
passing today between the Boers and
the British goveonment can be termed
peace negotiations or what will be their
result can only remain- speculation for
the present. The stock exchange -evidently
takes a hopeful view of the out
come. It also is re'ported that other

A dispatch from Seattle states that in
an initiation of candidates last evening,
one of the neophytes was severely in
jured. He was being hauled around
the place blindfolded in a little wagon,
when the wagon was tipped over. He
was dumped against the side of the al
tar, and his side was crushed. He bled
profusely, and it was fiist thought that
he was dead. Since then he has been
cared for by members oi the order in the
lodge building. The members are tak
ing extraordinary care to conceal his
name, and it cannot be learned. He is
said to be a clothing merchant.

Can by a few hours before, aud was
about to depart for Alcatraz Island, the
bleak military prison of the Federal gov
ernment, where he will serve a 10-year
sentence for publicly -declaring his in
tention to assassinate President Roose
velt when his term of enlistment ex
pired, and for indorsing the crime of
Czolgosz. He was closely guarded by a
detail of his former comrades, and in
their stern faces was no sympathy for
the fellow, who was no longer a soldier,
who had been conrt-tuartialed and dis
missed from the seryice in dishonor and
disgrace. Frank Rakowski is his name,
and he is a native of Poland. He was a
member o( the artillery company sta
tioned at Fort Stevens, commanded by
Captain Harold Cloke. Some time be
fore Christmas he was ordered to Fort
Cylnmbia, Wash., on detached duty. A
few days before the holiday, Rrkowski
was in Chinaok, and was under the in
fluence of liquor. The assassination of
President McKinley was spoken of in a
saloon, and Rakawski was present. He
was in the uniform as a soldier of the
army of the United States, which ac
counted in a measure for its startling ef
fect upon his auditors when he declared :
"President McKinley got what he de
served. My time of enlistment in the
army will sonn expire. When it does
I'll see that President RooBevelt gets the
same dose Czolgosz gave McKinley.
It was a marvel that Rakowski was not
lynched on the spot. His snarchistic
utterances were heard by several per
sons in the saloon, aud when they com
prehended the treasanabte threat made
in direct and unmistakable language
they rushed for him, aud bore him to

officers of the peace he would have

constituted one of the chief causes of
discontent anions the prople; they were
the hotbeds of insurrection and bad fur
nished Aguinaldo nis chief appeal to the
popular prejudice. The secretary said
that the religious orders so fully recog
nized the bad condition of affairs that
they were dishosed to sell out, and lie
urged that the government take aduan
tagt of the opportunity to remove the
chief causes of discontent in the islands,
lie did not believe that condemnation
proceedings wonld be necessary, as
there were indications that a fair price
could be agreed upon, A rough esti
mate of the value of the lands, he said,
was from $j,0()0,000 to $7,000,000, Amer

statement by explaining the enormous
power which ttie religious oiderj have
long exercieul in the Philippines. They

bishop is quite at powerful ai the governor-general
