At a banquet given last night by the Princeton Club, of Chi cago, President Patton. one of the guests of honor, made an Interesting address, in which he said Princeton University needs $1,000,000 to carry out projected improve ments. He said the next great thing for Princeton to do was to develop a sradu ate department, and that there should be a first-class school of law In connection with the university. The social question, the one relating especially to "What shall we do with these people?" was one that was now pressing the American people, and there should be a course for the train ing of minds for the solving of it; that the subject of International law and diplo macy was one with which the best minds of America were now wrestling, and that It seemed to him the proper course for Princeton to take was to provide Instruc tion that would cover these lines. One of the speakers at the dinner was John T. Davis, of St. Louis, who said If the university would raise $500,000 for a law-school endowment, he could guaran tee the alumni would raise $500,000.

Mr. Sand ford, who arrived tonight from Barring ton, the scene of the supposed wreck last week, reports that on February 25 a steamer whistle was heard In the fog near tho famous Lurcher Shoal.

RWHSKYI 36 BOERS STILL STRONG Fight the British Sunday in Cape Colony, BUT RETIRE UNDER SHELL FIRE English Lost Six Mca Killed and 18 Wounded, and Camped la the Captured Positions. DORDRECHT, Cape Colony, Sunday, March 4, 9 A. M. General Brabant's Co lonial division after a night march Is now attacking the Boers in a strong posi tion at La Buchagne's Nek, on the road from Dordrecht to Jamestown. Later The engagement is proceeding with great vigor, and the Boers are grad ually rttlrlng before the British shell lire from three positions. A heavy rifle firo is being exchanged where the British are engaging the Boers on the right flank. So far the Boers have had no big guns in action. Evening General Brabant's advance to day was most satisfactory- After march ing and bivouacking over nigh:, the force reached the strong, entrenched positions, which they occupied and now hold, the Boers being on the opposite hill. Tho British will remain tonight in the captured positions, although the Boers brought two guns Into action and made determined efforts to. retake them. The British losses are six killed and IS wounded. CRONJE THANKED ROBERTS. Field Marshal Reports Conditions fit Various Points. LONDON. March 4. The War Office has received the following dispatch from Lord Roberts, dated Osfontein, Sunday, March 4: "General Cronje, on behalf of his party, and Commandant Wolmarans, on behalf of 4000 other prisoners, asked the British officers to thank me for the consideration and kindness with which they have been treated. "General Clements reports that his ad vanced troops hold Achtertang, and that railway communication would be opened to Joubert's Siding tonight. The enemy is still in force at Norvalspont bridge. "General Gatacre says the number of Boers at Stormberg is daily diminishing. "Colonel Baden-Powell reports that all aro well at Mafeking, and that the enemy's activity was being met with equal activity' on the part of the defenders. "The position Is unchanged at Osfontein, except that frequent "heavy showers have materially Improved grazing, te the bene tl )a fit of the horses and transpoiManlmals." QUEEN WILL REMAIN AT HOME. Little Ncrrs From Scat of War, hat Activity Is Presumed. LONDON, March 5. 4:40 A. M. Her Ma jesty has. abandoned -horlntemiivlH to jthoItallan- "RivWa. and lias decM-i to remain at home. Her decision to give up her customary Spring holiday Is account ed as another proof of her deep interest in and devotion to the welfare of her people. On Thursday she will come to London for a brief visit, remaining until Saturday, and she will undoubtedly re ceive a splendid ovation. Her heartfelt, homely dispatches to the Generals in the field and her visit to Nettley Hospital have greatly endeared her to her people. Beyond tho signs of a general retreat of the Boers throughout Cape Colony, there is little news from the front. Lord Rob erts, in his dispatches to the War Office thus far published, says little, but he Is undoubtedly active in some direction. The Onsland, the organ of the Afrikan derbund, says: "The Boers will now confine themselves to the defensive, abandoning an offensive policy." Abraham's Kraal, as shown In the War Office maps, is a group of three kopjes, situated at the junction of the Kraalspruit with Modder River. It is a natural point of concentration, which the Boers could mako extremely strong, but after the proofs of the mobility of the army of Lord Roberts, it may be doubted whether they will make a really serious attempt to bar his advance there. A noticeable feature of all the recent operations at the theater of war has been the active employment of Colonial forces, which !s in marked contrast to the policy adopted at the beginning of the war. The Australian Colonies have decided to pro vide the 2500 men Mr. Chamberlain re cently asked for. It Is now seen how near Ladysmith was to starvation, and the exhaustion of am munition. The town could hardly have withstood another Boer assault or havo held out much longer. The Dally News has a dispatch from Ladysmith, which says that the supplies on hand were only enough to provide full rations for four days. The town might have held out an other week, but scarcely beyond that. RELIEF CA3IE UNEXPECTEDLY. Buller Seemed to Recede, and There Was Depression in Ladysmith. DURBAN, Friday, March 2. Correspon dents who have returned here from Lady smith say that the relief came quite un expectedly. At noon on Tuesday the fir ing of General Buller's army seemed to recede Instead of approach, and the gar rison was consequently depressed. Everybody was startled to hear the gar rison's 4.7 gun firing. It had not been used much of late, owing to the diminish ing ammunition. On hurrying out, it was found that the Boers were trying to re move the big gun on Bulwana by the erection of a derrick. Th's proved that something oxtraord nary was happening. The other garrison guns then directed their. fire on Bulwana, with the result that the Boers were compelled to abandon the attempt with the derrick. Later on, they placed tho gun on a wagon, which cap sized in a donga. During the afternoon, whenever the Boers were seen approaching the British resumed tho shelling of Bulwana. About 4 o'clock a terrific thunder storm broke over the town, Just after a message had been heliographed from Wagon Hill that th Boers were In full retreat. Other offi cers said they believed they could descry British cavalry, but most people supposed that the wish was father to the thought. As soon as the storm ceased, the British guns reopened on Bulwana, gradually con centrating the fire on the left and driving the Boers before them with the object of preventing the enemy from hampering any British approach. An hour later a party of British horsemen could be seen crossing the flat, below Bulwana, at a distance of some miles. It is .mposslble to describe the excitement and enthusiasm among the troops that followed. Most of the townspeople had been driven into the houses by the storm, and did not learn the good news until later. The storm broke out again at 7 o'clock In the evening, and continued until 2 o'clock the next morning. It must have seriously hampered the retreating Boers. The British gunners kept a sharp watch to prevent any further attempt to remove the Bulwana guns. The British naval gun was fired at intervals through the night, and in the morning a force was sent I out to look after the gun and to occupy Bulwana, Lord Dundonald's force went after the retreating Boers while 4000 of the best men of the garrison went toward Eland's Laagte, in the hope of being able to cut off tho enemy. Lady-smith Was Enthusiastic. DURBAN, March 2. The newspaper correspondents who have reached here from Ladysmith say that the enthusiasm of the garrison and inhabitants of the besieged town was Intense when the re lieving column entered. Men left the hospitals, and even the women and chil dren went forth to greet the newcomers. It was noticeable, however, that the lat ter were the most demonstrative, cheer ing the women and children whom they were proud to have saved. The correspondents believe the garri son could have held out until April 1, though rations had necesarily been: re duced to the minimum. The men of the garrison will require a rest, and the horses are much wasted. Tho correspondents paid a high tribute to tho courage and heroism of the wom en. Never a complaint was heard from them, in splto of their unexampled pri vations, and their endurance and courage wero beyond praise. Sad sights were often witnessed when the sparse rations were being drawn. Children would pathetically seek milk for their sick mothers. The women and chil dren were estimated at 500. Though there was much sickness arising from the horse meat diet and the absence cf fari naceous food, the epidemic period was safely passed. Dr. Jameson is suffering from typhoid fever. General Buller entered the town at noon Wednesday escorted only by his staff. His bronzed appearance was very strik ing. He had not entered a bed for three weeks. The Boers exchanged shots with the relieving force, which saw a few corpses lying In the road. It Is believed the Boers are retreating to Glencoe. The correspondents eulogize Genorals White and Hunter. CANADIAN AR.TILLERY STARTS. Loyalists Give Ovation Dutch Cause Trouble In Cape Town. CAPE TOWN, March 4. The Canadian artillery has just started for the front. The loyalists gave them an ovation. At Graaf-Reynet, about 200 miles north of Port Elizabeth, some 70 Dutchmen, in cited by bondites, attacked with sticks and stones a body of loyalists who were celebrating the relief of Ladysmith. Many persons were Injured. The loyalists de mand military protection. A similar riot occurred at Stellenbooch, about 25 miles east of Capa Town. The rebels of Grlqualand, reinforced by GOO Dutch farmers from the Prleska dis trict, occupied Kenhardt, 100 miles west of Prleska, after a sharp conflict with the Kaffirs, and are now marching southeast ward or Van Wyck's Vie!, where thero are grain stores. Four hundred refugees from Kenhardt havo reached Carn&ston. The natives in that district are renorf-d restless. " j ' BOERS HOVER. ABOUT BRITISH. Joubert Collecting; Force la Front of Roberts. LONDON, March 5. A dispatch to the Times from Osfontein, dated March 2, di lates on the "increasing difficulty of tele graphing as the army advances through the enemy6 country." The correspondent says: "Forage for horses Is almost unobtain able. The whereabouts of the enemy is not exactly known, but the mobile com mandos are hovering around our army. We anticipate opposition at Abraham's Kraal, SO miles east of Paardeberg, where General Joubert Is reported collecting a force from the whole of the Ladysmith forces with the Northeastern Free Staters. "President Steyn arrived at the Boer camp at Abraham's Kraal on the morning of February 27 and harangued the burgh ers, exhorting them to remember Majuba and to deliver Cronje." BOERS HAD 40,500 MEN IN FD3LD. That Number of Cards Germans Deprecate Anglophobia. BERLIN, March 4. The semi-official Berliner Post, in a strong article today, again begs the Anglophobia press to dis continue the practice of abusing British statesmen and Generals and British en terprises generally, declaring that this does more harm than they suppose. The Post asserts, on the authority of a private letter from the Transvaal re ceived at Hamburg, that the Boer Repub lics, on January 15, had issued altogether 46,500 Identification cards to Boers in the field. The writer of the letter claims that these figures represented the total federated forces at that time. 40,000 Men to Oppose Roberts. LONDON, March 5. Spencer Wilkinson, in the Morning Post today, merely reviews the small events announced In th rils- Lpatches from the front, and expresses the upinion mat me lioers cannot place more than 40,090 men to oppose Lord Roberts, except by a complete abandonment of Natal. He says: "Without that, the Boers must keep two strontr rear miards. one at the erest nt the Free-State passes and the other at uibbttiuauuig. ueiicrm xjuuer is oeiween them and can threaten either at his dis cretion. He can, therefore, compel them to keep a disproportionate force on the two lines, or leave one or tho other open to his advance." j Cnnadlnn Congratulations. OTTAWA, Ont, March 4: A provisional ' regiment of Canadian militia, to take the place of the British regulars at Halifax. , will be organized for garrison duty. The Governor-General received the fol- i lowing from General Buller In answer to a congratulatory message sent on behalf 1 of the people of Canada: I "Ladysmith. March 4. CannrHnn Mn. gratulations appreciated." - Afraid We'll Get Unfriendly. LONDON. March 4. The Dallv Chrnnt. cle, referring this morning to the contra dictory reports regarding Lord Paunce ' fote, says: i "We hope it is true that Lord Pauncefote i is to remain in Washington another year. , We fear there is hard work before the I d'plomacy of both countries. If we are not to relapse into our former unfriendly atti tude." Encountered the Enemy. LONDON. March 5. The Morning Post has the following dispatch from Osfon tein. dated March 3: "General French made a reconnolssance today and encountered the enemy in force. They were occupying a table shaped kopje. Shots were exchanged, a Boer gun replying." Cecil Rhodes Going: to England. CAPE TOWN, March 4. Cecil' Rhodes is here, and expects to sail for England Wednesday. " BLOOD' OF A NATION Dr. Jordan Draws Moral Against 'Boer War. BRITISH EMPIRE SOON TO TOPPLE Race Not What It Once Was, Phys ically or Mentally Other Speeches Favoring? the Boers. CHICAGO, March 4. President David Starr Jordan, of Leland Stanford Uni versity of California, lectured at All Souls' Church today, speaking to a large audience on "The Blood of a Nation." He said that the present century would witness the downfall of Great Britain. He declared that ultimately the people of South Africa would have their free dom. The speaker, in emphatic terms, as serted that the present Inhabitants of Great Britain were a mere shadow of their forefathers in point of brains and health. Mr. Jordan thinks that a na tion that founds Its destiny on war must reach a speedy decay. He said a great war saps the vitality of the best blood of the nation. Mr. Jordan deprecated tho fact that so many of the best youths of a nation are killed during times of war. He remarked that this accounted for the existence of a weak nation, both mentally and physically. The speaker declared that Franco more than any other great nation had deterior ated. He said war more than any other thing had contributed to this sorrowful condition. Among other things, he said: "I think war more than any other agency destroys the vitality of a nation. Take, for Instance, the present British Boer war. The best representatives of both countries are now on the field ot battle. War not only makes widows, but It prevents many marriages. I am cer tainly of the opinion that war is a curso cm any nation, unless It Is the result of a fight for freedom. Such a thing as carry ing on war for the sake of encouraging imperialistic Ideas wiil wreck, sooner or later, a nation that tries such a scheme." HOT WORDS OF BOURKE COCKRAN. Says United States Government Sur rendered to Great Britain. NEW YORK. March 4. In a speech at the 122d annlversay of the birth of Rob ert Emmett, which event was celebrated tonight at the Academy of Music by the combined Clan-Na-Cael organizations of this city, W. Bourke Cockran bitterly de nounced the attitude of the Administration at Washington towards England In her af fairs in South Africa, and almost advo cated retaliation on the part of the United States, He said in part: "England seeks to In some extent Jus tify this way by our example, the ex ample set by the government not tho people. It Is said again that the people of this country must remain neutral. That i nn-lt should be. But J. deny that this country has been ncutrai. There was long before this war in South Africa be gan, a question between England and the United States regarding the Alaskan boundary. There was- a claim pending. I don't say that the moment this war be gan in South Africa we should have made a claim against England, but I do say that the advancement of a claim should not have been delayed one moment. We ceased at that time to be neutral. If the United States Administration had gone on enforcing that claim this war would never have begun. The Canadian troops would have had abundant business at home. "In his speech last night, President Mc Kinlcy said there was no alliance with England. I believe that. It Is not an alliance. It's a surrender; a surrender of tho control of our foreign policy into the hands of the foreign office. We do not get "anything. We give up and the Govern ment discharges a Consul at Pretoria be cause he complained that his mall had been opened. A boy 24 years old is put in his place, the son of our former Am bassador, and more than that, he gets his last instructions, not from the Gov ernment at Washington, but from tho foreign office in London." Mr. Cockran closed with an arraignment of England's methods of so-called civiliz ing influence. DILLON ON TRANSVAAL WAR. "Was Ever War Waged for Such In famous Objects V KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 4. Mr. John Dillon, Irish leader in the English Par liament, was Invited to send a message to be read at tho recent banquet of the Mar quette Club In this city, wh-ch developed enthusiastic Boer sentiment. Mr. Dillon's reply, which was delayed in transit, has Just been made public. It is dated Dublin, February 22, and says in part: "In Ireland we regard the war now be ing waged by the British Government against the two republics of South Africa as tho most unjust, criminal and cowardly war of the. century. In order to deceive the Liberal opinion in Great Britain and abroad, a pretext was put forward that the object of the attacks on the repub lics was to securo equal rights for the Ultlanders. The falsity of the pretext has been exposed by the fact that Ultlanders of all races except English are fighting in the armies of the two republics. To u&e the words of Sccrotary Reltz 'Great man ifesto to the Free Staters' according to tho Colonial Secretary, -England ras con stituted herself champien of all the Ult landers. And what do we find? On the borders, side by side with the burghers we find these same Ultlanders in hun dredsGermans, Irishmen, Frenchmen, Belgians and Scandinavians, and even Englishmen ready to lay down the.r lives in order to rid themselves of their self constituted champion.' "All the civilized world now sees that the real object of this conspiracy and war against the republics of South Africa Is to deprive the republics of their liberty, to steal the.r gold mines, to increase divi dends by reducing the wages of laborers in Johannesburg, and to establish the as cendancy of tho English race over all other races in South Africa. "Was war ever waged for such Infamous objects? "In pursuance of this conspiracy against the liberties of South Africa the press in Great Britain and South Africa, which is financed or controlled by speculators and mne-owners, who are chiefly respon sible for the war, has assailed the Boer people with a torrent of calumnies jnd lies unparalleled in human history. "The Irish people who know from ex perience tho bitter fruits of race ascend ancy and the denial of liberty, stand to day for liberty and justice in South Africa as they stood In 1775 for liberty and Just.ce in America, and we look with confidence to the citizens of that greatest of repub lics, which throughout the 19th century has been the Mecca of all lovers of liberty and the refuge of the oppressed, to extend its sympathy and ail-powerful aid to the small peoples who are fighting with splen did heroism to vindicate in South Africa today the same principles which your an cestors fought for and died for in the great war which gave freedom, to America," Friendly Offices Urged. PITTSBURG. March 4. The American German League of Western Pennsylvania, representing an aggregate of 20,000 mem bers, today adopted a petition urging the Government to use its friendly offices to bring about a cessation of hostilities be tween Great Britain and the South African republics, and It was resolved that all Boer sympathizers throughout the land be Invited to co-operate in sending a gen eral appeal to Washington. A form of petition to President McKinley was draft ed, copies of which can be secured by all who wish, by addrersing Secretary Max Krunlker, of Pittsburg. News From the Boer Side. BLOEMFONTEIN, Orange Free State, Friday, March 2 (via Lourenco Marques, March 3). The Federals have resolved to abandon territory around Rensburg, and the retreat has been effected under the protection of mounted burghers.

Mrs. Vandelia Varnum Thomas, of the People's Church, who said today: "There are millions of Protestants In America who rejoice over the stand that he has taken. Would it not, then, be a gracious expression of appreciation to send him a memorial or an address signed by representative men and women in all parts of the United States?" Oransre River !Qrldg;c Intact. COLESBERG, March 4. A reconnols sance with two troops of Australians and two guns found the wagon bridge over the Orange River Intact. Fifty Boers, on the other side were taken by surprise, and the British galloped to the laager, some miles on the Free State side. Price's command has moved seven miles north of Colesberg.

ARCHBISHOP HENNESSY DEAD Pioneer Catholic Priest of love a and a Prominent Theologian. DUBUQUE, la., March 4. Archbishop Hennessy died at 2:25 P. M. today. Archbishop John Hennessy was recog nized as one of the greatest orators and profoundest theologians in the Catholic hierarchy, and beause of his zeal in his educational matters has been named "the apostle of the American Catholic paro chial school." His latest work In the cause of education was the founding of a seminary here, designed to be one of the largest In tho country.

His Constituents Approve His Course on Puerto RIcan Bill. INDIANAPOLIS, March 4. Among cer tain Republican leaders In various parts of the state, a movement has started in favor of nominating Congressman Crum packer, of the Tenth District, for Gov ernor. He was the only Republican Con gressman of the state who voted against the Puerto RIcan tariff bill, and it is due to this fact that this movement has start ed in his favor. During the coming week.

Course Tovrnrd Puerto Rico Criminal The Rev. Dr. Smith, pastor of the most prominent and fashionable church here, said this morning in his sermon: "To listen to a few magnates and bur den Puerto Rico with a tariff is a crim inal course. Some of our politicians are smarting under the lash of public cen sure, and are studying the art of being two-faced and two-voiced to extricate themselves from the awkward dilemma. If the Islands aro equal to our average state on the score of Intelligence, then we violate our law in laying a tax with out their consent," Texas Republicans Split. WACO. Tex., March 4. It is believed that the Republicans will send two dele gations from Texas to the next national convention. They will open their conven tion In this city on Tuesday. Up to the present time nearly every county and Congressional convention held In the state has split and sent two delegations to tho state convention.
