Washington, Jan. 1. President Cleveland today announced tho ap pointment of the Venezuela boundary commission as follows: David J. Brow?r, of Kansas, asaociato UBtico of tbo United States supremo court ; Richard H. Alvoy, of Maryland, chief justice of, the court of appeals of tho District of Columbia; Andrew D. White of New York; Frederic R. Cou dert, of New York, and Daniel C. Gil man, of Maryland. Tho commission is regarded here, among those who halnn opportunity to see tho list of names after they were mado public, as a;very satisfactory one, whoso opinions and conclusions will le received by tho American public with that confidence which the standing of tbo members of tho commission in the public eyo inspires. Brewer and White are republicans, and Alvey andCoudort democrats, while Gilman hasnever figured prom inently in politics. At the White House it is statedthat he has no poli tics, but his proclivities are understood to be republican. Thus both parties, it will be seen, are equally represented on the commissionTwith the fifth member having no outspoken policy. All will accept tho places to which thcy have been appointed. Washington, Jan. 2. It is authorita tively stated in bcbalf of the adminis tration, that the Venezuela commission will bo absolute master of its own pro ceedings, fixing tho time and place of its meetings, and determining for itself whether or not it shall visit foreign countries, what class of evidence may be taken into consideration, and how the interested governments may be rep resented before the tribunal. This in dependent action is deemed necessary to secure the commission's finding that degree of weight and respect among orber nations that can 1m attained onlv through a knowledge that the body is free from any restraint or obligation to the United States government. Our government will occupy the status of an exact neutral in the proceedings. Exciting Day In London. London, Jan. '2. When business opened on the stock exrlnngf ttvlay it was notice J tbat operators felt a decided uneasiness, due to the se'ious nons from the Transvaal republic. Kaffirs" and the securities of the British C larlered Companies onened 3) lower, but "Kaffirs" subsequent!) rallied os the receipt of a Berlin dispatch faying Dr. Jamieson and his expeditionary force had arrived at Johannesburg and ho was in friendly communication with President Krueger. The Times asserts that Queen Victoria has peremptonly ordered tho Duke of Fife, husband of Princess Louise of Wales, to reiign tbe directorship of the Chartered British South Africa. This the Duke of Fife denies. Secretary of State for tbe Colonies Chamberlain has issued the following statement regarding events in the Trans vaal: "The High Commissioner is leaving Cape Town this afternoon for Pretoria to deal with the situation in furtherance of a peaceful and satisfactory settlement." Disavowed by England. Beujn, Jan. 2. It is reported here in official circles that tbe German govern' ment has been informed by the govern ment of Great Britain that tbe latter strongly disavows the invasion of tbe Transvaal republic by the British South Africa Company's forces, and has sent positive orders to Capo Town and to all officers concerned for tbe Chartered Com pany's representatives to withdraw from tbe Transvaal territory at once. A dispatch from fretoria announces that the British agent there had tele graphed the governor of Capo Colony, the commandiug'gencral, of his positive information that 800 Buchuanaland troops, with six Maxim guns and other cannon, carrying the British flag, had arrived near Rustemburg, and are on the march to Johanesburg. Tbe dispatch added the president of tho Transvaal re public regards tbis incursion as a sen ous violation of tho convention with Great Britain, and hopes immediate steps will be taken to stop aDy further advance of tho intruders, as ho cannot ailow his country's rights to bo violated in this manner. The governor of Capo Colony reports "I declaro if the report is truo the Bteps were taken without my sanction or previous knowledge. I immediately wired my disapproval of tbo action, and directed the' troops to retire without de lay." Cubans Victorious. Havana, Jan. 2. An engagement be tween Spanieh troops and the insurgents has taken place at El Estante, south of Alfonzo XII. not far from tbe frontier of tho province of Havana. An official announcement says tho troops captured the insurgents' position but tbe loss of tho enemy is not known It is admitted two Spanish officers and four soldiers wcro killed and 1!) wounded Tbo insurgents, following tho usual tactics, did not attempt a decisivo en gagomcnt, but, after a skirmish, pro ceeded westward, devastating tho coun 1 ) try. The authorities here, in announc ing this skirmish, added the significant statement that tbo troops "were moved closer to the province of Havana," which would indicate that the Spanish forces are once more in retreat. Later in tho day it was announced here that further fighting between the Spaniards and Cubans is taking place in the vicinity of El Estante, which leads the people here to believe that the insur gents have been in pursuit of the Span ish troops in that vicinity. The latter were commanded by Colonel Galviz, who was also in command of the troops first engaged in tbe vicinity of El Estsnte, which seems to be a confirma tion of the supposition that tire Spaniards were worsted and tho Cubans are mak ing for the frontier of the province of Havana. It is announced this afternoon that Felippe Roderiquez, an insurgent leader, has been killed in battle. Jamieson Defeated. London, Jan. 2. A dispatch to the Exchange Telegraph Company this eve ning says Dr. Jamieson has been se verely defeated by tbe Boers before Jo hannesburg. The same agency adds the news is confirmed, and Secretary of State for the Colonies Chamberlain has been summoned to tbe colonial, office, here a conference will be held tonight. It is added the defeat of Jamieson is such as to compel him to retreat across the frontier. Montana's Mines. Helena, Mont., Jan. 2. Montana produced in metals about $47,115,000, during the year 1895, just ended, taking the value of the silver at the coinage rate and estimating the last two months of the year on a pro rata basis. The official report of the assayer for this office will not be readv until some time in March, but it is believed that the figures given-will not vary more than a few thousand from the real amonnt. The production of gold was $4,100,000; of ilyer, 4,500,000 ounces; of copper, 12,000 pounds; and of lead, 24,500,000 pounds. The output of copper is esti mated as being 65 per cent, of the pro duction of the United States. The re ceipts of bullion at the Helena assay office during 1S95, were 10 per cent. greater than last year, and 4' per cent, greater than during 1S93, Another Victim. Chicago, Jan. 2. A special from De catur, Mich., says: Tbe faith euro scored another victim Wednesday when Mrs. James Harris was borne to her grave after an illness in which no physi cian was permitted to administer to her wants. Deceased was a member of that peculiar sect which flourishes in tbis region known as "Children of Ood," or "Saints of tho Evening Light." Two other members of tbe family died under similar circumstances. Sugar Advancing. Chicago, Jan 3. A local paper says: The effect of incen.liarism in the sugar- caue fields of Cuba, by Jhe insurgents, has reached this market with greater force than that noted last week, and sugar is on the up turn. Tbe net advance this week has been lc, tho wholesale price of granulated being 5c. Conservative dealers aro predicting a further advance of fully '"C, and others look for an ad vance of 1 cent. The latest news on the street is that the Cuban crop is rapidly passing out of sight in smoke. The in surgents, according to reports, seem de termined to destroy the entire crop. Best information from the central-pro ducing localities state there is remaining only 15 per cent of a crop. Early in the crop year the yield was estimated at 1,100,000 tons. Later estimates reduced it to 700,000 tons, afterwards to' 500,000 tons, and thb latest dispatches to whole sale grocers make the Cuban crop only 300,000 tons. In view of the fact that the European beet sugar outlook is poor, there is prepa ration for higher sugar prices. It is a time of the year when retailers' stocks have run low, and they are rush iug into the market with orders. Jobbers are buying everything they can lay their hands on. Refineries have been compelled to shut off large specula five orders, and cau scarcely keep pace with what appears to be legitimate con sumption. Tho Loudon market is active and advancinir, and the raw product the world over is in big demand. The Louisiana planters are holding back supplies, expectiug higher prices, Dr. Jamieson Shot. London, Jan. 3. ibo ataniiani says it is rumored that ur. Jamiesou was shot today after a drum-bead court-mar tial. Followers Will be Released. PnnToiiiA, Jan. 3. It is reported that Dr. Jamieson will be tried by court-mar tial, and his followers will be released Tho Black Watch Highlanders have been ordered to stop by force tho ad vance of a ' second body of the British Chartered Company's troops in the Transvaal. WlUielm to Kruger. Bluijn, Jan. 3. Emperor William to day telegraphed President Kruger as fol lows: "I express my smcero congratu tiona that with your own 'peoplo, and without appoaling to tho help of friendly powers, you havosucceeded, by your own nergetic action, aguiuat the armed bands which invaded yonr country as disturbers of tho peace, and have thus been enabled to restore peace and safe guards in tbo defense of the country against attacks from outside." Editor Hesse Talks. London, Jan. 3. Editor Hesse, of tha South Africa Critic, says he ha? a cable dispatch referring to the recent events at Johannesburg, sent eince Dr. Jamie son's defeat, of such a grave nature that he declined to publish it, until it is con firmed from other aources. Hesse has bad a long experience in the Transvaal, and his' previous news regarding points in the crisis has been accurate. In the course ol an interview today ne was quoted as saying: "If Johannesburg is the same town I knew, the city has risen, and either succeeded or failed in tbe attempt to liberate Jamieson. I am satisfied that all foreigners there, includ ing Americans, would help the English. There are practically no Boers 'at Johan nesburg, except armed bergbers who are parading the streets. England not Responsible Chicago, Jan. 3. J. B. Weinberg, of Johannesburg, who is a present sojourn ing in tbis city, says the invasion of tbe Transvaal was in no tense an effort on the part of England to annex the cele brated South African cold fields. Tb9 people of Johannesburg would fight to a man against coming under British rule. "When the Transvaal was unknown for its riches in gold and diamonds," Mr. Weinberg said, "the law concerning tbe naturalization ot newcomers were the same as in the Orange Free State, and very smilar to naturalization laws of the United States. When tbe country began to fill up with miners and people interested in the gold and diamond in dustries, the Boers changed the. laws and made it impossible for any one to be come naturalized. Then a high tariff was placed on everything the Boers were not likely to use. Particular enmity was shown to the mining industries. In Ibis way the republic succeeded in levying fully 90 per cent of the taxes on the new population, which was denkd citizen ship, in-order to prevent newcomers from making an effort to equalize the burdens. 'It was fiye yea-a ago that the national union, to remove the gross abuses, was organized at Johannesburg, it took in Its membership all the more progressive mining men, many of whom were Amei- icans and Germans, who would bilterly- oppose any attempt on tbe part of Eng land to annex the country. Even the English residents would oppose any scheme for the country's subjugation. In my opinion the national union has given up peaceful means for obtaining reform, and is calling Dr. Jamieson to help its members overturn tbe republic. After trying all these fiye years to secure some concessions from tbe Boera, the national union has doubtless concluded they will never make any tieadway until tbe old government is overturned. That, it seems to me, is all that Dr. Jamieson's invasion. He has evidently determined that he will aid the foreign element in upsetting the Boer government, and the next that will be heard of it will be its accomplishment. The movement has been on foot for some time, and the doc tor will not stop halt way when once started." Driven Out of Tacoma. T.icoma, Jan. 2. The- Chinese have again been driven out of Tacoma. , Tbe two Chinese that Thomas Riggs estab lished as servants in his home a month age were this morning put on the train and returned to Olympia, whence 'they came. Mr. Riggs was tired of agitation on the subject, and surrendered uncodi- tionally. The public meeting called for the 15th instant by the committee of 15 to further consider the Chinese question, will now probably be turned into one of rejoicing. Officers Installed.

The Germans are now denouncing the English for their greed.
