INTERVIEW WITH KRUGER.
Opinion of Transvaal ex-President on
u the Situation.
NEW YORK, April 8. A dispatch
to the Herald from Paris says:
An interview with Mr. Kruger ap
pears in the Matin. The ex-president
of the Transvaal was seen In a mod'
est little inn at Utrecht, where he Is
staying for the moment. His eyes
have been very much improved by
recent operations, and he can now dis'
ponse with spectacles. Sitting in
front of a table with a Bible under
his left hand, Mr. Kruger delivered
himself of an important statement,
to which further significance was
given by the presence of the Orange
Free State delegate, Herr Fischer.
Mr. Kruger began by announcing
that Saturday next beJ proposes retir
ing into the country for complete
rest. The little village of Hilbersum,
not far from Utrecht, has been se
lected for his abode. Nothing has
yet been decided regarding his trip to
America. Mr. Kruger will undertake
the Journey if his strength permits
and if there is any hope of gaining
advantage for the Boer cause.
Pointing to Herr Fischer, the aged
president declared that the two re
publics are indissolubly united.
"Herr Fischer," he said, "is fight
ing for the same cause as my heroic
friend President Steyn. The two
presidents and the two commanding
generals, Botha and Dewet, will share
the same fate."
On being questioned regarding the
reliance he placed on the Boer of
ficial telegrams and statements in
parliament, Mr. Kruger, half rising
from his arm chair, declared:
"The British government, British
telegraph and the British press al
ways try to make this much" and he
measured his little finger "look like
this much" and he extended both
"I am persuaded everything is go
ing well there precisely because our
enemies continue to dissimulate and
travesty facts. As regards General
Botha's negotiations, the public knows
from the blue book and by reading
General Botha's last dispatch that it
was the British general who first made
proposals. Never did the Boer gen
eral refuse to listen. We do not fight,
except for peace. We are not con
querors, but, although General Botha
listened to the British proposals, he
never uttered a word of equivocation
on the subject of independence. In
dependence is the only treasure we
cherish, even if we have to sacrifice
all others. It is for this reason our
citizens forsook their farms and sac
rificed their lives, and our women and
children now suffer temporary servi
tude in the enemy's camp.

portation of Supplies.
WASHINGTON, April 8. The war

signment of goods or cancellation of

affirming that an absolute sale has
been made by him and that "he re
tains no interest of any kind or char
acter In such goods."

Shipwrecked Men on Raft Forty Days
Two Out of Twelve Survive.
LONDON, April 9. The Singapore
correspondent of the Dally Express
wires a story of cannibalism at sea
brought to Singapore by two survivors
of the Novo Scotian bark Angola,
which was wrecked six days after
sailing from Manila, October 23 last.
The correspondent says:
"The survivors Johnson, a Swede,
and Marticornu, a Spaniard assert
that the Angola struck a reef. Two
rafts were built. The smaller, bear
ing five men, disappeared. The other,
with 12 men, drifted for 42 days. The
sailors ate barnacles, seaweed, and
finally their boots, and on the 25th
day two became Insane and killed
themselves. On the 20th a Frenchman
killed the mate with an ax, drank his
blood and tried to eat his brains, but
was prevented by the others. Next
day the Frenchman was killed while
attempting to murder the captain. The
survivors, all of whom were now In
sane, ate the Frenchman's body. Can
nibalism continued until only Johnson
and Marticornu remained. On the 42d
day the raft stranded on Subi, or Flat
island, in the Natuna group, north
west of Borneo. Johnson and Mar
ticornu were awfully emaciated.

WASHINGTON, April 9. As a re

Is to have a first-class veterinarian sta
tioned in England to test for tuber
culosis all British cattle shipped to
this country via Canada. The Cana
dian administration wanted cattle to
be admitted from Canada without tewts
at the border by American experts.
The department at Washington would
not agree to this. Secretary Wilson
said, however, that if Canada would
send to England an agent who should
have sufficient expert knowledge of
the subject, the United States would
admit cattle upon his certificate that
the cattle had been tested and found
free of tuberculosis. This was agreed
to by the Canadian minister. It is
officially explained that about 10 per
cent of the livestock in the United
States and about 40 per cent In Great
Britain have tuberculosis. The cattle
on the continent of Europe are so dis
eased that this government will not
permit the admission of any animals

SANTIAGO DE CUBA, April 9. Fif

used yesterday afternoon in blowing
up the forward superstructure of the
sunken United States collier Merrl

was heard plainly in the city, five
miles away. Divers immediately de
scended and found 40 feet of clear
water over the forward portion of the
wreck. Port Captain Irving will be
gin tomorrow to place mines aft, which
he expects to explode In a week, thus
completely clearing the harbor en
trance. Yesterday's Incident was highly
spectacular. Residents on Smith Key.

fearing that their houses would be
demolished. The overlooking hills
were lined with people, and large
numbers of pleasure seekers encircled
the wreck at a safe distance. When
the electric button was touchd a pyr

Reduction of Money Order Rates.
Washington, April 8. In addition to
the arrangement with Canada, it is
expected that a reduction of postal
money order rates between the United
States and both the Philippines and
Cuba will be put in operation on July

between the postal administrations ol
the United States and Canada will
take effect on that day, and negotia

islands mentioned which are expected
to be consummated in time for all
three arrangements to be effective
simultaneously. This means a reduc
tion on all money order business be

clines to the belief that they have
not joined in the rebellion. He does
not think the court is in any danger,
and thinks the object of Prince Tuan
(who was last reported at Nlng Hsu
Sian with 10.000 men prepared to re
sist arrest) and General Tung Fu Sian
is to create a diversion of interest In
order to force unconditional protec
tion of themselves.
Unofficial Chinamen of intelligence
regard the rising as most unfortunate
at the present time to the interests of
China, and as of possibly meaning the
use of foreign troops to protect even
the court itself. The .ministers of the
powers do not think that, provided
foreign Interests do not suffer, any
present interference is likely. If the
dynasty should bo overthrown. It
would, to a certain extent, delay the
peace negotiations, but they consider
that a regime not bound by traditions
like those of the present court prob
ably would be much easier to deal
with eventually, as the ceremonial
could be much curtailed.
Prince Ching, who, as a relative,
may be considered to take the court
view of the situation, thinks the re
bellion is a storm in a teapot. He
says the present court is loved and
esteemed by nine-tenths of the pop
ulation of China, and that the same
proportion of able-bodied men in
China would rise to protect the ex
isting dynasty. The empress dow
ager, as the adviser of the emperor,
holds the affections of the people, not
dreamt of and not understood by for
eigners. Her slightest wish is the em
peror's law, though he Is by no means
a figurehead, as the foreign powers
frequently suppose. The emperor rec

27 military prisoners, a number of

teamsters and other civilians em
ployed. According to expert opinion, China
would be able to pay from 20.000,000
to 30,000,000 without crippling her
financial resources, while the amounts
which the powers at present demand
range from 80,000.000 to 100,00,

English Girls Apply by Hundreds for
NEW YORK, April 10. A rather un
expected result has followed Mr.
Chamberlain's recent speech in sup
port of the scheme for sending women
out to South Africa, at the conclusion
of the war, says the London corre
spondent of the Tribune. An enor
mous number of letters has been re
ceived from women eager to emigrate
and reluctant to wait until hostilities
are ended. One woman who wrote
direct to Lord Salisbury said she was
prepared to go out at once with her
mother and sisters, but she indicates
no particular sphere of usefulness.
Another wrote to the colonial office
in behalf of herself and a few other
"first-class lady barbers." Naturally,
the colonial office authorities are do
ing their utmost to discourage appli
cations from women other than those
who are self-dependent, and girls of
the servant type are urgently advised
not to go at all. It is very doubtful
whether there will be any openings
for them, and the public iunds cannot
be used for the purpose of granting
free passages to the Cape.
Flood Scare is Over.
Boston, April 10. The flood scare
all over New England, due to rising
waters from five days of heavy rains,
has died out, and tonight the reports
indicated that a change for the bet
ter would come before daylight. The
losses will be heavy, no doubt, but
nothing to be compared to the fresh
ets of recent springs. The reason Is
obvious to people in Southern New
England, for the early spring left
the ground open for a good soaking,
and this natural absorption of the
rain is taking care of much of the
water, while the great surplus of the
overflow, being unimpeded by ice, is

GOLDSBORO FAST IOU.
Make Good Speed In Two Trizls on
SEATTLE, April 10. The torptviO
boat destroyer Goldsborough, limit by
Wolff & Zwlcker, of Portland, w;-.m
given two of the first of her olili'l.il
trial runs In Puget Sound, off Alia
Point Saturday; ono i;i the moi:ii;itr,
and the other in the r,ftenioo,i. The
official trial board, comprised of Lieu- 1
tenant Coniniandeis (J. II. i'eteis and
Btilmer, Lieutenants A. li. Wilson and
C. Oilier; Assistant Naval Constructor
Adams, all of the battleship Iowa;
Frederick HalHn, representing the
building firm, and several invited
guests of the builders, and the cor
respondent of the Telegram, were
aboard during the trial trips.
It was 9 o'clock in the morning
when the order was given to cast
awuy the shoie line, and soon the lit
tle steel flyer swung from her moor
ings and heutlel down the harbor for
Alkl Point. She made the trip over
.it a comparatively slow speed. Thou
sands of spectators lined the wharves
the entire dfrtance of the long water
front, and watched the pretty maneu
vers of the destroyer, and they wit
nessed a fine sight, seldom seen In
Arrived at Alkl Point, orders were
given to let her go full speed ahead.
The smoke poured from her two
large stacks In dense columns, as she
fairly flew through the blue waters
of the Sound, spurting the spray high
into the air from her bow. Over to
Magnolia bluff she sped, like a race
horse, eager to win the highest tro
phies; circling around, she crossed
back on the course Just traversed.
This was repeated four complete
trips. Arriving back at Alkl Point,
where Puget Sound steamers make
their runs to the city from Tacoma,
she paused, as if to catch her breath,
when the Flyer, the fastest steamer
on the Sound, appeared. Still the
Goldsborough waited. The Flyer came
alongside, then passed oil. The full
speed ahead signal was given, and
then a race such as was never before
witnessed on Puget Sound, began, the
distance to the city belni? three miles.
Faster and faster through the waters
sped the little steel destroyer, and It
seemed that the Flyer had suddenly
stopped, so slow was her speed com
pared to that of the Goldsborough.
The latter was at her dock and tied
up before the Flyer had blown her
city whistle. Probably never again
will so grand and majestic a sight
be scan as that race, and the Immense
crowds on the docks seemed to ap
preciate It, for as the Goldsborough
drew near to her wharf, she was greet
ed with tremendous shouts from a
thousand and more throats. At noon
the party went to the Butler cafe,
where they were given a banquet by

WASHINGTON, April 10. Secre
tary Long was Informed today that
the torpedo-boat destroyer Perry, built
by the Union Iron Works, of San Fran
cisco, failed to meet contract speed

quired to develop a speed of 29 knots
an hour, but the best she could do on

The action of the department has not
yet been determined, but the vessel
probably will be accepted, subject to
a slight deduction from the contract

that the fire yesterday which caused
the destruction of a grain elevator

origin. Several boys whom the watch
man Just previous to his discovery of
the fire had ordered from the premises
are thought to be guilty. The fire
