The correspondent suggested that the
war was over, inasmuch as the capital

"The capital," exolaimed President
Kruger, with energy, "what is a capi
tal? It does not consist of any particu
lar collection of bricks and mortar.
The capital of the repnblio, the seat of
the government, is here in this car.
Theie is no niagio about any special
site. Our country is invaded, it is
true, but it is not conquered. The
government is still effective."
Referring to the reason why he left
Pretoria, President Kruger said:
"I was not foolish enough to be
taken prisoner. I provided this means
of locomotion precisely for the same
reason as our burghers supply them
selves with horses when they take the
field. .It is necessary that I should be
able to move quickly from place to
place. That is all. Bye and bye this
car will take me back to Pretoria. For
the present, it enables me to keep
away from Pretoria, where I could be
of no sevrice and where I should only
play into the hands of the enemy."

New York, June 11. The advices
from London that M. Rothstein, a well-
known financier of St. Petersburg,
would soon arrive in this country, with

here as an agent of his government and
determining whether or not a large
Russian loan could be floated in the
United States, are said by leading for

Whether or not M. Rothstein shall
ultimately be successful in his mission
however, it is not believed by promi
nent local financiers that he will be
able to place a loan of any magnitude
in the United States for the next few
months, until the presidential campaign
shall be ended.
It may be remembered that in Feb
ruary of this year, the Russian imper
ial government negotiated a loan of
$15,000,000 with a syndicate of New
York banks, trust companies an insur
ance companies. In exchange for
their money the syndioate receive four
per cent bonds, guaranteed principal
and interest by the Russian govern
ment and secured by a first mortgage
on the Wladikawkos railway system.
The loan now sought is also for rail
way construction, according to a Wall
street man intetrested in the February
operation, who said:
"M. Rothstein, president of the Rus
sian Imperial Bank of St. Petersburg,
and one of the government's trusted
agents is, I have been informed, com
ing here to get money for the Russian
trans-Caucasian railway. This is one of
the longest roads in the world and is
not completed by any means. Money
is needed. M. Rothstein is coming
from London here, and is going to
Washington to see the Russian minis
ter, through whom all negotiations are
to be made."
The London report also said that a
large Russo-American bank might be
established here as an outcome of M.
Rothstein's visit, but this is regarded
by high authorities here as exceedingly

PLANS FOR CARNAGE
Dlacloaed by Sundry Filipino Docu
Manila, June 13. The great store of
insurgent documents discovered by
General Funstou, together, with the in
teresting papers which Captain Smith
found iu the possession of General Pan
taloon Garcia, throw interesting eirio
lights upon the Filipino government.
Most important of the lot is Agvinaldo's
plan for the uprihiug of Manila, which
was drawn by Mm at Malolos, is in his
own handwriting in Tagalog language,
and bears the date January 9, 18ft).
Pinned to the document was a transla
tion into Spanish done in the hand of
Bnencamino. Aguinaldo's order Whs
addressed to his "valiant sandatihans"
or bolo men. When the word for the
uprising was given they were to slay
all American soldiers in Manila. The
inhabitants were to repair to the house
tops, whence they were to hurl down
upon the insurgents heavy furniture
and any iron implements they mitiht
have, heated rod hot. They were alfO
to have ready in their houses hot wator,
which was to be thrown upon passing
soldiers, or squirted at them from bam
boo syringes. The women aud children
were exhorted to help in preparing the
water and boiling oil, which they were
to pass out to the men for use. After
ward the bolo men were to run through
the streets slashing Amoricuus wher
ever they met them. They were in
structed not to stop to pick up the gnus
of the soldiers they killed, those could
be collected afterward. The bolo men
were warned to restrain themselves
from the temptation to looting, be
cause, as Aguiualdo explained, he was
particular desirous to make good in the
eyes of foreign nations his assertions
that the Filipinos were disciplined and
civilized people. Particular injunc
tions were given for protecting the
banks, even the Spanish bank.
MAY GET A NEW TRIAL.
Man and Woman Now Nerving Life Sen
tence! for Murder.
Topeka, Kan., June 13. The supreme
court has reopened the celebrated mur
der cases of George Dobbs and Mrs.
Amelia New, now serving life sentence
in the Lansing penitentiary for the
murder, near Eureka, in 1807, of
Joseph New, the woman's husband.
The court has granted a writ of coram
nobis, which is, in effect, an order to
the district court to hear the applica
tion for a new trial, which the lower
court had refused.
Dobbs and Mrs. New were convicted
two years ago. The theory was that
they were iu love, and conspired to get
rid of New, so they might marry.
Aftor they had been in the penitentiary
for some time, Alvin Ballard, sent up
for horse stealing, asserted that he
could prove that Dobbs and Mrs. New
were innocent. Ballard said Frank
Allgood, now in the penitentiary for
forgery, William Turner and he were
the real murderers. Ballard told the
story in detail, saying he belonged to a
robber band organized by Allgood, and
told the officers where they oould find
many stolen horses and vehicles. Bal
lard was taken from the penitentiary
to verify his assertions, and aided the
officers in recovering much stolen prop
erty," On the strength of this evidence,
application for a hearing in the cases
of Dobbs and Mrs. New was 'made be
fore the district court of Greenwood
county, where they were convicted, but
the motion was refused. Now that the
supieme court has overruled the lower
courts' decision, the motion for a new
trial will be heard at once.
St. I.ouU Car Men Will Spend 1 00,000
to Equip an Elaborate 'Bua Syetem.
St. Louis, June 18. The Central
Trades and Labor Union proposes to
establish a bus line in St. Louis, to
compete with and run parallel to the
lines of the St. Louis Transit Company,
on which there is -a strike, to be oper
ated by union men. At a medtiug at
Walhalla hall last night, the first step
was taken toward this end by the
adoption of a resolution to raine ut
least $100,000 to purchase and equip
the neceHsary bus system .
From the resolution adopted and the
declarations of the speakers, hence
forth the policy will be to win the
strike, if possible, on the basis o' a
general boycott, which in all of its
ramifications is to reach to almost
every industry in the city. The fare
on a bus for a distance equal to that
traversed by the street-car line will be
Monday opened quiet, after a reign
of terror. With one exception, all the
street-car lines are in operation.
