Louisville Police Officers Testify Be

FRANKFORT. Xy., ;ran. -22. The police
force of Louisville, through four of its
officers, defended Itself vigorously tonight
against the charges of Interference at
the November elections, which have been
brought against them -by the republicans.
Captain Krakel, Lieutenant Wickham,
Captain Wright and Lieutenant Ridge
were the officers, and all gave practically
the same evidence. They declared that
orders were issued before the election to
the members- of the police force to inter
fere In no way with the election, and
that the orders were carried out In "good
faith. There was, they declared, no rea
son why -the military should have been
called out by Governor Bradley, and no
particular reason why an extra policeman
should have been sworn In, as there was
no disturbance at any time on election
day. Each ,of the four officers declared
that In his individual opinion the presence
of the militia in the armory deterred
many people from going to the polls. On
cross-examination they could not name
any person so detained.
In the Jegls.ature today the house con
testing committee reported in favor of A.

adopted without a dissenting vote.

Sunday night on the ground they had won
after two days' fighting. The war office
turned everybody out of the lobbies at
midnight. Apparently Lord Lansdowne
was as much without news all yesterday
as other persons were.
Military men assume that fighting must
have taken place, and that it was prob
ably more severe than on the two preced
ing days. General Buller would not be
likely to give the Boers leisure to add to
the elaborate entrenchments, to arrange
their artillery and to concentrate their
forces. The special correspondents Sun
day night were allowed to send the an
nouncement that the battle would almost
certainly "be resumed the following day,
and hence official and popular ' anxiety
Is at high tension. A
The British military experts all share
the hopes of their leaders, and, as Spen
cer "Wilkinson points out, they hesitate to
say a word that might be .interpreted" as
unfavorable. Mr. Wilkinson refers to the
"cooler judgment of German and Austrian
critics," which means that some of the
best judges look upon General Buller's
enterprise as a forlorn hope, as merely
a continual strainof fighting may prove
too much for the physical energy, of the

Some fears are expressed that the garri

The war office has decided not to send

that Lord Roberts does not see a way to

than that, the English cavalry are too

LONDON, Jan 23. Just before midnight
the war office issued the following dis

General Lyttleton's skirmish on Saturday.
"General Warren continues pushing on,
though he 'Is necessarily making very

British Slowly Forced the Boers
LONDON. Jan. 23. The Dally Mall has
the following, dated Sunday night, from
"There has been hot fighting all day.
At dawn our attack was resumed along
the entire line, all the brigades taking
part We soon discovered that the Boers
etlll occupied the range of hills Inforce,
their position being very strong. The
range is intersected by steep ravines, ana
many approaches very difficult of access.
"Today the Boers, who were driven from
their trenches yesterday took caver Jn
dongas and behind the rocks,with which
the hills are strewnt The forces, there
fore, commenced the task of driving them
out, and set to work with good heart in
the early morning. Much firing took
place, and our progress was slow- but
gradually British pluck told its tale, and
the enemy fell -back to another kopje.
We swarmed 'on and occupied it, and
then the attack recommenced with the ut
most gallantry. The country simply
abounds In hills-, favorable to guerrilla
warfare, and our task is an arduous one.
Nevertheless it is being gradually accom
plished. Whenever any of the enemy
were observed taking up a fresh position
our field batteries poured In showers of
shrapnel, and the Tapid movement of the
giins, followed by accurate shooting, must
have greatly distressed them.
"The enemy, were,, on the defensive al
most the entire day, tsave once, when they
attempted to outflank our left 'and were
checkmated. They, relied almost entirely
on rifle fire. A few shells were fired from
a heavy, piece,1; but these fell harmlessly.

the extreme left of "the Boer position.
The infantry advanced at 5 o'clock In the
morning along the lrregufar sides oi

behind and on the plain. The British
carefully worked along the hills until
within 1000 yards of a commanding kopje,
on which tho Boers were concentrated,
concealed behind immense boulders
strewn thickly Jover the hill.
The artillery opened the attack, and
the batteries worked continuously, pour

firing on the British Infantry. The Boers
stuck to their rocky fastness with vgreat
es tenacity, and at the "conclusion of the
day the-British had only advanced across
a few ridges.
The Boers apparently have few guns,
and they did little damage.

"Friday General Warren began a long,
circuitous march from' Trichard's drift

The widow of General Wauchope In an
open lettpr. hotly denies the story that
the general in any way criticised General-
Metnuen. She says that General Wau
chope's last mention of General Methuea
to her was contained in a letter from'1
Orange River, -dated November 29, as fol
lows: "I expect that General Methuen will halt
,at JVioduer River for some days- before
pushing forward. He has had a hard time
of It, and musf be a real gallant soldier to
shove along as he does." .
Lord Wolseley has also Issued a denial
of the report that the war office is in
possession of a letter from General
Wauchope,- written on the night before
the battle of Magersfontein, saying it
would be the last letter he would write,
as he had been asked to perform an Im
possible task, and he had either to obey
orders or surrender his sword. '
Though there is considerable anxiety as
to the immediate result of General Bul
ler's dash at Ladysmith, which later de
velopments Indicate was undertaken inde
pendent of Field Marshal Roberts, the war
office has now come to the conclusion that
the relief of Ladysmith is only a matter
of a short time.
According to the war office officials'
idea, a dash to the relief of Kimberley
will quickly follow the relief of Lady
smith, and then, without doubt, a long
spell of organization, and-perhaps three
or four "months will elapse before .thq col

professor Herron, o Iowa, on the Ef
fect of Socialism.
NEW YORK. Jan. 22. GeorgeD. Her
ron, formerly a professor in Iowa college,
who Is on hl3 way to Russia to visit Count
Tolstoi, said In a lecture last night before
the Social Reform Club that what Protest
ant Chrlstenuom termed religious authority
was essentially a monopoly.
"There Is no difference," he 6ald. "be
tween the oil combination that says Pay
unto me so much tribute, or else go with
out oil,' and that of the church that saya
'Worship as I eay or be damned. It Is ex
actly the same principle; that which lies
back of the Standard Oil combination and
the Protestant church.
"Socialism has come 'to us "not as an
economic change, but It stands for a new
spirit and a new world. From the various
forms of individualism, through capitalism
and the varying forms of distribution, from
what a man is supposed to earn and what
he really needs, we must finally reach that
stage where human need is the only rec
ognized coin of the realm for a decent so
ciety. The central Idea of socialism Is that
of every human being an equal Inheritor
of Svorldly benefits. And In this day all
things objective and subjective are tending
toward the socialistic Idea.
"One of the grave questions Is the effect
socialism will have on religion. What will
be the effect on the general mental atti
tude in human life If socialism should pre
dominate? What will be the" effect of the
creeds and the dogmas, the gods and the
temples? The effect of a socialistic idea
possessing the world would change the
whole attitude of human life toward the
future. Protestantism stands by, menaclrg
the Integrity of the human soul. The ele

for centuries. They are afraid of the gods
they worship, and must propitiate them.
They must sacrifice to their unknown gods

to have the Philippines permanently re

civil war-he was In the government serv
Iqe as railroad conductor, running trains
in tho South, and at one time saved Gen
eral Sherman and his entire staff from
capture, an act General Sherman never
At the time Mr. Patch was in charge
of a train running, from Memphis, and
General Sherman and staff were on board
en route to a point near Iuka or Corinth.
Tho engineer was a rebel sympathizer. A
plot had been formed to capture the train.
The engineer was to stop the train in a
densely wooded section, apparently to
take water for the engine. The engineer
performed his part, slowing, the train to
a halt. Immediately volleys were fired at
the train. Mr. Patch, regardless of flying
bullets, jumped from the train, ran for
ward to the engine, mounted It, revolver
In hand, and gave the engineer the alter
native of death or proceeding. The engi
neer sullenly, complied and the train drew
away before the rebels could reach It.
Years afterward General Sherman was
addressing a crowd In Galesburg. He no
ticed Patch in the crowd and called him to
the stand as the man who had saved him.
During the war Mr. Patch received in
juries he carried through life. He had
been a Mason for 50 years. He was past
eminent commander of Galesburg com
mandery, Knights Templar.

REATIES MAY FA
Opposition to New Reciprocal
PROTESTS FROM THE NORTHWEST
Bryan's Chilly Reception in tho
Eastern States Retirement of
WASHINGTON. Jan. 22. The Oregon
and Washington delegations In congress
are receiving many protests against the
various reciprocity treaties, the latest com
ing from the woolgrowers, who assert that
the treaty with Argentina will do a vast
amount of damage to the woolgrowlng In
terest, as wool Is about the only. product
which will come from that country. This
additional objection to the ratification of
the treaty probably makes it certain that
It cannot be ratified. It is understood that
the president Is somewhat annoyed because
of the possible failure of the treaties, and
especially as congress made It obligatory
upon the admlnstration to negotiate such
f treaties with countries that are -willing to
make them. The president feels that there
is nothing in the treaties that need Inter
fere with the system of protection, and be
lieves that the export trade of the United
States would be largely Increased by adop
tion of shch reciprocal arrangements as
have been made.
Secretary Hay, under whose manage
ment Commissioner Casson negotiated the
treaties. Is also very much disappointed
in them, and will be very much disappoint
ed If nothing is done. 'But, notwithstand
ing the desire of the president and the
secretary of state. It Is not likely that,
with the protests that have been made,
either the senators or representatives will
be willing to vote to ratify the treaties.
What Alaskans Wnnt.
J. G. Price, of Alaska, called on the
president and had a 20-minute talk on
Alaska's needs. He laid before hlta tho
ness to substitute something ete that is
equally plausible. Mr. Price Is greatly en
couraged by this Interview.
Effect of Uryan'i Eastern Trip. .
The visit of Bryan to the East has not
been conducive to bringing about harmony
in the democratic party, but, on the other
hand, It Is shown that there Is. consider
able oDDOSition to the plans of the "boy
f orator." Tho leading democrats In Baltl-
more did not attend his meeting. Many
rf the prominent democrats of New York
have also left town rather than have any
thing to do with the dinner In that city.

It is well known that Bryan has felt tho

Bryan's visit Is also said to mean the
retirement of Arkansas. Jones, as chair
man of the national committee, during tho
next campaign, as his political judgment
is questioned not only by those who op
pose Bryan, but by Bryan himself. It la
understood that Bryan wants a man who
will make a more vigorous campaign, and
who will be more acceptable to those
democrats that oppose the Jones methods.
To "Winter Troops at Vancouver.
Senators Simon and McBrlde will visit
the war department tomorrow and urge
the secretary to send the troops destined
for Alaska to Vancouver, to be wintered.
This means that when the troops are
shipped north, they will probably be sent
from Portland. It Is understood the Wash
ington delegation wants to have the troops
winter at Seattle, but there Is scarcely
provision for them at that place.
Data for Tonsue's Pension Bill.
Representative Tongue says the pension
committee is now collecting data with ref
erence to his Indian war veteran bill.-
f and that he has been promised an early
and favorable report.

expenses of collecting the revenue from
customs at the ports of Oregon for tho
coming fiscal year, this service employing
54 irien, and $40,537 for a similar purpose

EIGHT MEN RESCUED.
Were Entombed In Los AngelesJ
Sunday Two Men Bled.
LOS ANGELES, CaT., Jan. 22. Eight of
the 11 men who were entombed in the
1 Third-street tunnel by the caving m of
i earth yesterday, were rescued -uninjured
today. John Dejoe is still entombed, and
Is Injured, but it Is not known how seri
ously. It may take several hours to
reach him, though he has been communi
cated with. Foreman Crawley Is doubtless
dead. Many tons of earth fell In the
part of the tunnel where he was. It will
be some time before he can be reached.
The theory advanced for the cause of
the tunnel caving in Is that a sewer broke
over the place where the men were work
ing, and water, saturating the earth,
caused It to become heavy and fall.
Street Inspector Lomble, who was flo
badly Injured, died this morning.
