ROYAL VISIT TO IRELAND
PHnPATtATIOXS FOR QUEES VIC
Pot and Pans end Otlicr Pnrapher
. noli Urtc Already Gone
The Queen's Health.
LONDON. March 21. Tho Ufa
Guards, couriers, carriages, pots and
pans and other royal paraphernalia
have already gone to the Royal
Isle, which eagerly traits for Queen Vic
toria to follow. How Her Majesty will
be received and the prospects of her
doings In Dublin have quite overshadowed
all other topics,, even In a week which
has been marked by the annual Inter
varslty boat race, the resignation or the
Duke of Norfolk as Postmaster-General,
the announcement of the Delagoa Bay
Railroad award, and the rumors of pos
Elble war in the far East. Great Brit
ain's own war In South Africa has almost
been forgotten, so uninteresting has been
the progress of peace In the Orange Free
State, compared with the stirring accounts
of battles which the British people had
grown accustomed to read dally.
The Queen Is said to be In excellent
health, and well able to bear the strain of
the trip to Ireland. She commences her
Journey April 2, and sleeps on board the
royal yacht Victoria and Albert, landing
at Kingstown April 4. In anticipation of
Her Majesty's progress through the city,
the streets of Dublin are already gay
'With flags and decorations. A curious
feature of the preparations at the Vice
regal Lodge, where the Queen will stay,
are the pots and pans already referred
to. Her Majesty Is tremendously par
ticular about her kitchen arrangements,
and those at the Viceregal Lodge were
found to be quite below the royal stand
ard. Consequently no less than 309 cop
per frlcandeau pans. E4 saucepans, SO
copper stock pots and many other vari
eties of cooking utensils havo been sent
to Dublin especially for tho visit. The
Earl of Denbigh, who goes to Ireland as
Chief of the Royal Entourage and Lord-ln-Walting,
holds three Irish titles, and
was formerly Ald-de-Camp to the Lord
However, though the Queen is raid to
be full of excitement and enthusiastic In
regard to her approaching visit, she Is
not forgetful of South Africa. A story
Is going the rounds that the Queen re
marked that she was aware many peo
ple Imagined her anxiety about the war
would cause her death. "I may die."
added Her Majesty, "but it will be from
some other cause. I do not mean to let
Mr. Kruger kill me."
The United States cruiser Albany
remains at Newcastle, though her
.officers expected she would have
sailed long before this. Several weeks
will probably elapse before she leaves
England, no opportunity having yet
been secured for testing her guns, and
several minor chanpr are being made.
In the meanwhile her officers and. crew
are having a dreary time at Newcastle.
Captain Craig managed to get steam heat
put In for the crews, but the officers'
quarters are merely warmed by a couple
,of .stoves, which arrangement, during the
recent bitterly cold weather, has not ad
ded to the happiness of their existence.

Roberts Reports the Dntch Army
LONDON. March JL The War Office
has posted the following dispatch from
Lord Roberts, dated Bloemfonteln, March
"Reports point to the enemy's leaving
Brandfort and proceeding In a northerly
direction. The casualties In yesterday's
engagement were more numerous than at
first reported. Officers killed, two: wound
ed, ejght. Rank and file: Killed, 10;
wounded, 159; missing, 3."
Even the details of the engagement yes
terday at Karee Sidings station fall to
Instill much Interest. It appears to have
been a one-sided affair, although the
Boers stoutly held their ground against
a force threo or four times theirs, for threo
hours, when, foreseeing the danger of
the British cavalry enveloping their flanks,
the burghers withdrew In good order nn
their main body nt Brandfort, which, ac
cording to Roberts, they seem later to
have decided to relinquish with a view
doubtless of occupying a prepared position
further north. There will probably bo
a general shifting of camps on account of
tho Britishers' new position being made
a base of a further advance as soon as
the railroad is repaired.
Roberts today reported to the War Of

execution of the death sentence by order
of the military officers In command in the
lases of persons, natives or others, con
victed and sentenced by military commis
sions organized under the rules of war.
Moralez and Gonzalez were convicted by
a military commission of the murder of
Filipinos, and were sentenced to be hanged
near Dayambang March 30, and 'the press
dispatches from Manila show that the sen
tence was carried Into effect. No official
report of the cases has been received at
the War Department. There have been
several cases where the death penalty
was Imposed by military tribunals, but up
to the present Instance no case where the
death sentence was carried Into effect. All
the previous cases were submitted to the
President for final action, and in every
Instance the sentence was commuted "to
Imprisonment for life. It is stated that
General Otis' action Is undoubtedly Intend

of the Island, as It Is being handled by

settled, business In Puerto Rico will re

work for them to do, but the planters
who need their services are without funds
with which to employ them. The people
here say: "Let the tariff bo settled, eltner
a free-trade bill or a 15 or 23 per cent bill,
and the feeling of uncertainty will be
raised. Trade will be revived. Tho banks
will advance to the planters, the plant

LOS ANGELES, March SL F. T. Fay,
of the Fay Fruit Company, testified today
before the Interstate Commerce Commis

three fruit car lines doing1 business In Cali
fornia, both when cars were refrigerated
and when they were not, the rebates
ranging from 310 to CO. the latter being
for refrigerated cars to the extreme East.
Samuel Westfall, of Westfall Bros.,
said his company has had rebates for sev

Leland Lyon, of Rediands, testified that
his company has received rebates from
fruit car lines for orange shipments, and
small rebates from Eastern roads, par
ticularly the Clover Leaf line.
The secretaries of a number of local
fruit exchanges testified that they have
protested against California Fruit Union
cars on the ground that they did not want
to put their affairs In the hands of a
competitor, but the railroads have forced
them to use the cars.
The testimony of E. Earl, president of
the Earl Fruit Company and the Con
tinental Fruit Exchange, closed the ses

was led to admit that he has paid rebates
to the -shippers of citrus fruits. He was
put through rigid questioning by the com

the money came which enabled him to
pay the rebates, and he stated that he
received a mileage generally from the
