BOERS ALL YIELD,
Surrenders Are Proceeding With the Greatest
Good Will Scouts Rewarded.

that the surrenders of Boers ate pro
ceeding with the greatest good will.
The total of those who have already
surrendered numbers 16,500, and the
British are extending every jKissible
kindness to the men whocome in. The
appearance of General De Wet at the
camp at Wynburg was the signal for a
great diHplay of enthusiasm. When he
arrived at camp General De Wet was at
once surrounded, by thousands of Boer
men, won. en and children, who clam
ored and struggled to shake the hand of
their hero. He warmly applauded the
staunch support that the women had
given the burghers . during the war,
which he said had greatly encourage 1
the men in tiie field. Continuing he
recommended. his hearers to be loyal to
the new government and said:
"Perhaps it is hard for you to hear
this from my mouth, but God has de
cided thus. I fought until there was
no more hope of upholding our cause,
and however it may be, the time has
now come to lay down our arms. As
Christians, God now demands that we
be faithful to our new government.
Let us submit to his decision."

Steyn, ex-president of the Orange Iree
state, was wounded during the war.
General De Wet has not seen his wife

verted into supply depots to provide the

Convicts Tracy aud Merrill Cross Columbia
Vancouver, Wash., June 16. Adding
the theft of another team to their
already long list of crimes, Tracy and
Merrill, the desperate outlaws, between
Friday evening and last night, made
their way through Clackamas county,
across Multnomah from the Clackamas
line to a point opposite Fisher's Land
ing, crossed the Colombia, and now, a
week from the time of their escape
from the penitentiary at Salem, are in
the neighborhood of Fourth Plain,
Clark county, Washington, with an
other posse on their track, another
sheriff in charge of it, and three detect
ives from Portland as reinfoicenients.
Aj it was in the beginning, it is now;
they will either be captured or killed,
or make their escape. Merrill is now
on ground with which be is thoroughly
familiar, having been born in Clark
county and brought up in Cowlitz, and
is thus better situated tnan while in
Oregon. The country is much the
same, formed of low-lying hills, cut by
ravines, and overgrown by underbrush
and scrub firs which afford the best
kind of cover. As the men are armed
with 30 30 rifles and have an abundance
of ammunition, it does not seem likely
that the desire to capture them will
bum any more fiercely in the breasts of
their new set of pursuers than it did in
those of the posse that laid down its
arms and gave up the fight at Barlow
Murderer Taken Near South Bend Says his
Wife Knew About the Alfair.
South Bend, Wash., June 16. Paul
Underwood, accused of the niunler of
his three-weeks-old baby, was captured
about 6:30 o'c'oik Saturday morning
near here. From the Btart the officers
have been trailing him, Deputy Sheriff
Markham, of this county, W. S. Kind
red and G. L. Houk, all experienced
woodsmen, keeping the trail, while the
others sought to head the fugitives off
by beating the woods ahead. As usual,
they started out at daybreak this morn
ing, and at the hour stated Sheriff Cud
ihee saw Underwood come down a hill,
and the latter, evidentlyspying the
officer, dropped into the tall grass on
the tide land at the bottom of the hill,
but gave himself up promptly when
Cudihee came pp to him. He was ap
parently making his way to Cedar
river, and had about half of his supply
of provisions left when captured. He
was placed in the custody of Sheriff
Ronoy, of this county, in whose charge
be was brought to this city. He was
taken to a barber shop for a shave and
then to the jail. His first wish was
for a glass of beer, which was not grat
ified. He was not fully satisfied with
his quarters, and sent word to Sheriff
Cudihee that he would like cleaner
Underwood seemed greatly surprised
when told that his wife protested all
connection with the crime. He says
she helned him to do away with the
baby, but that it was dead before it was
thrown into the water.
DEWEY TO GO TO SEA.
To Have Big Fleet and Conduct Naval Man
euvers In the South.
Washington, June 17. Admiral
Dewey is to go to sea again, flying his
flag, with the four stars, in command
of the greatest fleet in numbers the
United States has ever gotten together
since the days of the Civil war, and far
more powerful in offense and defense
even than any of those war fleets.
Secretary Moody has conceived the
idea, and aft consulting the pleasure
of Adiral Dewey it has been arranged
that he Bhall be piaced in supreme
command of the fleet (comprising the
North Atlantic, the European and the
South Atlantic squadrons), which is to
assemble near Culebra island, in the
West Indies, next December for the
winter maneuvers. Secretary Moody
himself desires to witness there man
euvers, and it is even possible that the
president may find time to make a voy
age to the South to see the big ironclads
in wars movements. Admiral Dewey
goes gladly to his work.
It is settled that Secretary Moody
will witness the summer movements of
the North Atlantic squadron, involving
combined naval and army attack on
and defense of the Eastern approaches
to New York City. It is expected he
will board the Dolphin for the purpose,
and be has invited as his guests Sena
tor Hale, chairman of the senate navaj
committee, and Representative Foss,
chairman of the house naval committee.
There will be other guests than these,
but Secretary Moody has not yet an
nounced their names.
Franklin, Pa., June 17. As a result
of the street-car boycott, growing out of
the trouble between the Vanango Power
company and its employes, the Btreet
car employes, both in this city and in
Oil City, have been sworn in as deputy
sheriffs by Sheriff McCallum. Few
people are riding. Up to a late hour
last night several hundred men lined
the tracks on the principal streets,
hooting at the motormen and conduct
ors and endeavoring to dissuade people
from patronizinv the line.
New Belgian Treaty Ratified.
Washington, June 17. Secretary
Hay and Baron Moncbeur, the Belgian
minister, have exchanged the final
ratifications of the new Belgian extra
dition treaty. This is one of the latest
conventions which the department is
drawing on modern lines with nearly
all the countries with which we already
have extradition treaties of rather an
cient date. The crimes of larceny.
kidnaping and obtaining money nndet
false pretentes are added to the crimes.

from a piece of money to his finger and
later found lodgment in the victim's

a field of operations. The young man
lay at the point of death for several
houra, but has passed the crisis.

It Now Goes to the President for Hii -"Approval
and Signature (lis Influence a
Great Factor In Securing Passage of the
Measure Oregon Delegation Is More
Washington, June 18. The house
has passed the Indian war veteran bill,
for which the Oregon delegation has
been struggling so many years. The
bill is identical with that which passed
the senate on February 18 last, except
for an unimportant verbal amendment.
As passed, the bill makes immediately
applicable the provisions of the Black
hawk pension act. Those who w ill be
rewarded are the surviving officers and
enlisted men, including marines, mili
tia and volunteers of the military and
naval service of the United States, who
served for 30 days or more, and were
honorably discharged under the United
States military, state territorial or pro
visional authorities in the Cavuse war
of 1837, 1848-49, on the Pacific coast,
the Oregon and Washington Indian
wars from 1851 to 1856, and numerous
other Indian wars. The bill also
makes provision for the widows of such
officers and enlisted men, provided that
such widows have not remarried, and
provided further that where there is no
record of enlistment or muster into the
servhe of the United States, in any of
the wars mentioned in the act, the re
cord of pay by the United States shall
be accepted as full and satisfactory
proof of such enlistment and service;
and provided, further, that all con
tracts l.eretofoie made between the ben
eficiaries under this act and pension
attorneys and claim agents are declared
null and void.
The bill will now go hack to the
senate, where the amendment of the
house will be concurred in, and the
measure will then go to the president
for his signature. The fact that he has
heretofore indorsed the bill insures his
early approval. .
FIVE SOLDIERS bOLOED.
Act of Filipino Iniurgents In the Island of
Manial, June 18. Friendly natives
in Manila say a report is current among
their countrymen that five soldiers of
the Sixth cavalry who were captured
by insurgents May 30 have been boloed
to death near Terresa, in Morong prov
ince, Luzon. This report has not been
confirmed by the American authorities
of that district.
Twenty-five members of a band of in
surgents who were captured while fight
ing with General Lukban, in Samar,
took the oath of allegiance to the Unit
ed States and were subsequently re
leased. Four members of the band
were killed in the engagement which
resulted in the capture of their com
panions. The 25 who have sworn al
legiance have seen General Chaffee and
have promised to give him all the as
sistance in their power in the work of
maintaining the present peace condi
tions in Samar. A committee has been
sent to Samar to appoint fSenor Loren
tes governor of the island and to estab-
lsh civil government there.
It is expected that a general amnesty
will be declared by July 1. This
amnesty will result in the release of the
Filipino prisoners now on the Island of
The prospects on the Island of Leyte
for a speedy termination of armed re
sistance there are bright. Since the
ports of the island were closed surren
ders of insurgents to the native con
stabualry have occurred daily.
FLIGHT IS RENEWED.
Tracy and Merrill Again Escape Posse and
Are Away One of Posse Shot.
Vancouver, Wash , June 17. Appar
ently undisturbed by the presence in
their immediate vicinity of a new army
of pursuers, Tracy and Merrill yester
day held up another farmer for the ne
cessaries of life, to-wit: clothes and
provisions, and selecting the vulner
able spot in the guard line that was
thrown out to head them off, went on
their way, presumably rejoicing. The
feature of the pursuit yesterday was
the shooting of a member of the posse,
by another member, who shot in the
belief that he was going to bring down
one of the convicts. The fugitives are
now in the tall timber in the neighbor
hood of Lewis river. Guard Carson is
on his way from Walla Walla with a
fresh set,of bloodhounds, and will ar
rive this morning to join in the chase.
The volunteer members of Company G,
W. N. G., are guarding such farm
houses as Tracy and Merrill are likelv
to select for food tlrls morning, and
sheriffs, detectives, posses, citizens and
guards will again hit the trail and start
in full cry on the fresh scent radiated
from the clothes the game left at the
ranch of Henry Tiede, four miles from
Vancouver, where they offed with the
old and onned with the new yesterday

'GUE UPHOLDS IT.
D-llven Able Speech In Support of Irriga
Washington, June 14. In an able
speech, Representative Tongue, in
answer to Representative Ray, of New
York, clearly pointed out the constitu
tionality of the ponding irrigatiou bill,
and forcibly showed the necessity fcr
tiie legislation. He said in part:
"The constitution confers 'upon con
gress the full and absolute right to dis
pose of and make all needful regula
tions in'iegard to territory of the
United States. In dealing with public
lands there is no provision of the con
stitution limiting the power of congress
it is absolute. This view has been
upheld by numerous decisions of state
and federal courts. The absolute power
oi uisposai implies tne absolute power
of dsiposing of the proceeds of the
lands. The pending bill is designed to
dispose of public lands. Millions 'of
acres now worthless cannot be disposed
of under any existing laws. This law
proposes irrigation solely or the pur
pose of disposing of the lands. The
United States (taxing power to dispose
of the lands, may take such means as in
the judgment of the legislative authori
ty is best adapted for that purpose.
This view has been repeatedly upheld
by the decisions of the supreme court ol
the United States."
Mr. Tongue cited a number of cases
in state and federal courts, including
the supremo ocurt, to show that the
United States, with or without the con
sent of the slates or territories, may
exercise the right of eminent domain
and condemn private property wherever
it is necessary to carry out any of the
powers conferred upon the general gov
ernment. If it has a right to dispose
of the lands, it has a right to condemn
private property and acquire necessary
water. The bill, however, provides
that this d-ight shall be exercised in
conformity with the laws of the several
states and territories, all of whoBe
constitutions contain provisions author
izing the condemnation of water rights.
These provisions, he says, have been
repeatedly upheld in the courts, which
also hold irrigation to bo a public use
lie denied Kay's statement that the
government has no constitutional right
toapply proceeds of public lands to irri
gation. He added that this very prin
ciple had been carried out in number
less instances. Congress has author
ized tne use of such proceeds in the im
provement of streams wholly within a
state, for the construction of universi
ties, agricultural colleges, normal
schools, state penitentiaries, state asy-
ums, mining schools, etc., and in tin
bill recently passed admitting three
new states, re-adopted these identical
provisions. His argument was received
with loud applause.
POSSE GIVES UP.
All Trace of Tracy and Merrii Lost ard Pur
suers Go Home.
Barlow, June 14. Tracy and Merrill
were not captured yesterday, nor are
they likely to be, unless, elated by
their success in eluding their multitud
inous pursuers, they become too bold
and present a target for some reward
hunting pot-shooter. Where they are
no man can say. Since noon Thursday
they have gone their way unseen and
unheard, save in the imagination of
rumor-mongers. Their pursuers have
given up the search. The militia re
tired earliest, and late yesterday even
ing, at the end ol a wild goose chase
that led from their rendez.vous at
Graves' ranch to Barlow, 10 miles
away, Sheriffs Durbin and Cooke de
cided that nothing more could be ac
complished by pursuing rumors""around
the country, and drove back to their
homes, Durbin taking the bloodhounds,
the rolling battery of eight Winches
ters and two vehicle loads of deputies
back to Salem, while Cooke drove into
Oregon City with a look of deep disgust
graven on his; sun-brownd features.
Salem, June 14. The reward for the
capture, dead or alive, of Tracy and
Merrill, has been increased to $3,000,
or $1,500 for either man. The reward
of $500 for information that will lead
to arrest and conviction of tho party or
parties who furnished the convicts
wun rines ana ammunition remains
unchanged. Charles Ferrell, of Reno,
Nev., brother of Frank B. Ferrell, one
of the murdered guards, has offered an
additional reward of $ 100 for the cap
ture, dead or alive, of Tracy, who is
known to have killed Ferrell.
West Indian Medals.
Washington, June 14. The navy de
partment has completed its compila
tion of the names of the officers and
men who are to be decorated with the
West Indian campaign medal. The
list totals in round numbers 800 officers
and about 6,000 enlisted men. Of this
number the engagement at Santiago
Bay, in which the greatest number of
vessels took part, makes up the largest
proportion. Admiral Schley and all
the fleet officers and men will get med
als, and the family of Admiral Samp
son will be given the one intended for
the deceased admiral.
Teamsters May Strike Again.
Chicago, June 16. Likelihood of
another strike of teamsters employed
in the stockyards increased today when
it was announced that 21 union drivers
for Swift A Co. had been discharge).
No reason was given for their discharge,
and the action of the firm has aggra
vated the ill-feeling among the leam
stera. No attempt was made today by
the teamsters to reach an agreement
with the packers.
More Time to Ratify Danish Treaty.
Washington, June 14. The senate
committee on foreign relations has de
cided to recommend to the senate the
ratification of the protocol extending
for one year the time of the ratification
of the Danish treaty for the purchase of
the Danish Vet Indies. This meas
ure is made necessary by the failure of
the Danish parliament to act upon the
treaty. Senator Cull. mi reported the
; resolution ot extension to the senate in
I" executive session, and asked that it be
considered, but Senator Hale objected,
and under the rule it went over.
RELIEF mi CUBA
URGED BY PRESILENT IN HIS
MESSAGE TO CONGRESS.
Our Duty to the Republic Is Not Yet Com
pleteIs a Weak Nation and Needs the
Help of Our Country Would Merely Be
Giving Practical Elfect to President Mc
Washington, June 16. The president
has sent a message to cengress, in part
To the senate and house of represent
atives! deem it important, before the
adjournment of the present session of
congress, to call attention to the fol
lowing expressions in the message,
which, in the discharge of the duty im
posed upon me by the constitution, I
sent to congress the first Tuesday of
"Elsewhere I have discussed the
question of reciprocity. In the case of
Cuba, however, there are weighty rea
sons of morality and of national inte
rests why the policy should be held to
have a peculiar application, and I must
earnestly ask your attention to the
wisdom, indeed to the vital need, of
providing for a substantial reduction
in the tariff duties on Cuban imports
into the United States. Cuba has in
her constitution affirmed what we de
sired, that she should stand in inter
national matters in closer and more
friendly relations with us than with
any other power, and we are bound by.
every consideration of honor and ex
pediency to pass commercial measures
in the interest of her well being."
This recommendation was merely
giving practical effect to President Mc
Kinley's words wlien, in his message
cf December 5, 1809, he wrote:
"It is important that our relations
with this people of Cuba shall be of
the most friendly 'character, and our
commercial relations close and recipro
cal." Objections have been made to the
granting of the reduction on the ground
that the substantial benefit would not
go to the agricultural producer of sugar,
mit would inure to the American sugar
refineries. In my judgment, provision
can be made which will guarantee us
against the possibility, without having
recourse to doubtful policy, such as a
bounty in the form of a rebate.
We are a wealthy and powerful na
tion; Cuba is a young republic, still
eak, who owes to us her birth, whose
whole future, whose very life, must
depend on our attitude toward her. I
rtt-k that we help her as she struggles
upward along the painful and difficult
road of self government and independ
ence. 1 ask this aid for her because
he is weak, because she needs it, lie
cause we have already aided her. I ask
that open handed help, of a kind
which a self respecting people can ac
cept, be given to Cuba for the very
reason that we have given her such
help in the past. Our soldiers fought
to give her freedom, and for three ears
our representatives, civil and military,
nave toiled unceasingly, facing disease
df a peculiarly sinister and fatal type,
witn patient and uncomplaining forti
tude, to teach her how to use aright
her new freedom. Never in history
has any alien country been thus ad
ministered with such high integrity of
purpose, such wise judgment, and such
a single handed devotion to the coun
try's interest. Now. I ask that the
Cubans be given all possible chance to
use to the best advantage the freedom
of which Americans have such right to
be proud and for which so many Amer
ican lives have been sacrificed.
