London, March 17.—It appears that
when Major Weston cut the jailway
north of Bloemfontein, he thereby in
tercepted General Joubert, who, far
from having retired from the campaign,
was then coming southward with 8,000
men, presumably to superintend the de

miles long had been prepared outside
the town. No Boer wounded were left
in Bloemfontein. When asked the

London, March 18.—The following is
the text of Lord Roberta’ dispatch to
the war office, announcing his occupa
tion of Bloemfontein:
“Bloemfontein, Mareh 15.—By the
help of God and by the bravery of her
majesty’s soldiers, the troops under mv
command have taken possession of
Bloemfontein. The British flag now
flies over the presidency, evacuated last
evening by Mr. Stevn, late praiident of
the Orange Free State. Mr. Fraser,
member of the late executive govern
ment; the mayor, the secretary of the
late governor, the landrost and other
officials met me two miles from the
town and presented me with the keys
of the public offices.
“The enemy has withdrawn from the
neighborhood, and all seems quiet.
The inhabitants of Bloemfontein gave
the troops a cordial welcome.’’
Took Opposite Stands on the Expansion
Washington, March 16.—Two argu
ments were presented to the senate to
day in which almost antipodal posi
tions were taken by two senators.
Teller, of Colorado, in a brief sppeech,
maintained that the constitution could
not extend over territory acquired by
the United States, while Turner, of
Washington, elaborately contended
that the constitution embraced the ac
quired territory the very moment the
United States took possession of it.
Teller held that this government oould
make the outlying territory into states
or could hold it as colonies, as it saw
fit, while Turner maintained that the
United States could not hold colonies
or dependencies. Aside from the con
stitutional questions, the two senators
were in practical agreement. Both
were opposed to the pending bill, and
both objected to any of the insular ter
ritory becoming a part of the United
States or any of its inhabitants citizens

Washington, March 17.—The house
committee on naval affairs reached a
definite and final decision today as to
the number of new warships to lie
authorized in the forthcoming naval
appropriation bill, as follows:
Two seagoing coast line battleships
of about 13,500 tons each, to oost ap
proximately $3,800,000 each.
Three armored cruisers of the high
est practicable speed and most power
ful armor and armament, to cost ap
proximately $4,000 000.
Three protected cruisers, to cost
about $1,141,000 each.
It was determined not to provide any
gunboats, in view of the opinion ex
pressed by Secretary Long and Admiral
Dewey that General Otis’ recent pur
chases of serviceable boats of this char

The committee decided to authorize
the secretary of the navy to contract

the battleships Maine, Missouri and
Ohio, now in course of construction,
and not to the vessels authorized but
not begun, nor to those contemplated
by the present bill.
The question of sheathing ships,
which has excited much interest in
naval circles of late, was determined
by adopting a provision leaving the
question of sheathing to the discretion
■of the secretary of the navy. Prior to
the action on the bill, Naval Con
structor Capps, who served with Ad
miral Dewey in the Philippines, was
heard on the sheathing question. He
urged in particular that vessels to be
used in foreign service should be
sheathed, as foreign drydocks were not

A Nickel Mountain.
Baker City, March 16.—Probably the
most important strike ever made in
Eastern Oregon was made known in
this city today by the return of John T.
English, of Illinois, mauagei of the Gol-
conda mine, and Flank Nelson, of this
city, who stated they had found a solid
mountain of nickel lying in Rye valley,
about 20 miles southeast of Baker City,
on the line of the O. R. & N. railroad.
It is a wonderful property, according
to their statements. For more than
5,000 feet the ore is traceable on the
surface, and the ore bed stands up a
distance of 20 feet, and is 1,000 to
1,500 feet wide. The nickel is free mill
ing and runs about $30 to the ton.
Each Htaked out two claims adjoining
each other. They will at once com
mence the sinking of a 100-foot tunnel
under the mountain to test the rich
ness of the discovery.

Auckland, N.Z., March 16.—Advices
from Samoa, dated Mareh 1, report

Dr. Solf, president of the municipally,
is governor. Herr Knipping, formerly
vice-consul at Sydney, will act as chief
judge and vice-governor. A public re
conciliation took place at the flag hoist
ing between Maatafa and Tamasese.
The supretme court, the municipal
council, the municipal magistracy and
the consular courts were alxjlislied.
The laws will remain in force as at
present. The natives are all quiet and
awaiting news from Germany as to rhe
form of government.
Robbed by Soldiers.
New York, March 16.—A corre
spondent of the Evening Post, writing
from Manila, under date of February
2, says: “When Gregerio del Pilar’s
body was found, American soldiers
stripped it of every bit of clothing, tak
ing the rings from his fingers and a
locket from the neck. Not a stitch of
any kind was left on the body, every
thing being taken for souvenirs. For
two days the body was left by the road
side unburied, until its odors was offen
sive and some Igorites were ordered to
cover it with dirt. Among the things
taken were hiB watch, money, a gold
ring and a diamond ring.”

Are Scattered—Many Ambuacadea.
Washington, March 19.—General
Joseph Wheeler arrived in ths city this
morning from Atlanta. He went over
to the war department this afternoon.
In the absence of Secretary Root he re
ported formally to Adjutant-General
Corbin, thus complying with the order
from the department which brought
him from Manila. The general was in
the uniform of a brigadier-general of
the volunteer army. He looked the
picture of health; better than when he
left Washington for Manila.
He gave General Corbin a brief de
scription of the conditions in Luzon.
He insisted that the war is over, and
that nothing more is to be done except
to run down a few guerrillas and irreg
ulars. There is ditficluty in this work,
he said, and there is danger, too, but
its prosecution is not “war.” Ambus
cades were frequent and annoying, and
it was not easy to tell whether the hid
den foe was strong or weak. Three
men had been mistaken for a company
in some cases.
The general said that the American
troops are doing splendid work there.
They are sound and healthy, and in
quite as good shape as they would be
at home, engaged in similar service.
This is owing in a mesaure to the ex
cellent care for their men exhibited by
officers, and to the watchful precau
tions of the staff of the army.

Bloemfontein, March 19.—General
Clements crossed the Orange river yes

at Norval’s I’ont have commenced, and
it will shortly be ready for traffic. Gen
eral Pole-Carew telegraphs his arrival

now is practically in rail communica-
iton with Cape Town.
“My proclamation is already having
an excellent effect. Several hundred
burghers have expressed their intention
to surrender their arms and return to
their occupations. The resident com
missioner of Basutoland reports that
800 Boers lately arrived from Bloem
fontein, and that a further contingent
from Aliwal North was only waiting to
know the terms of my proclamation to
surrender. They had refused to attend
a council at Kroonstad, to which Presi
dent Steyn had summoned them.”
EXPLOSION AT BLAST FURNACE.
One Man Entirely Cremated and Four
Pittsburg, March 19.—By the fall of
a “hung” at the Monongahela furnace
at McKeesport today one man was cre
mated, two were fatally burned and
two others were badly injured. Geo.
Martin is the cremated man. Geo.
Curvan and Sydney Jackson were so
badly burned that their recovery is im
possible. Stephen Stobeowski and John

Explosions of this character are fre

disappearance of Martin lends an air
of mystery to the affair. Three hun
dred tons of molten ore, coke and min
erals used in the production of pig iron
became fast in the furnace, and Martin
and Curvan, as top fillers, tried to dis
lodge it. Suddenly the entire mass
fell, compressing the gas below and
causing a terrific explosion.
Not a trace of Martin’s body can be
found. Curvan, when discovered, was
in a horrible shape, and can hardly live
until morning. The other men, who
were at the trottom of the furnace, fared
some better, but Jackson is so badly

Food for Puerto Rican*.
Washington, March 19.—Five hun

were shipped on a transport to Puerto

time ago from General George Daivs,
military governor of Puerto Rico, to
acting Secretary of State Meikeljolin,
for aid for starving Puerto Ricans.

Washington, March 17.—“I assert
most emphatically that when the sen

on this subject, he does not state the
This was the sensational retort made
in the senate today by Gallinger, to a
statement just made by Penrose. Sen
ators were astonished and the auditors
in the galleries quivered with excite
ment. There had scarcely been the
slightest intimation that the debate
would take such a turn.
For nearly three hours the senate
had under discussion the bill appro
priating $2,095,000 for the benefit of
the people of Puerto Rico.
had just concluded some remarks on
the measure, and suggested that the
senate proceed to the consideration of
executive business. Pending a motion
to that effect, Penrose who has charge
of the case of ex-Senator Quay, suggest
ed that a time be fixed for a vote on the
case. In the course of his remarks he
intimated that certain senators were
throwing obstacles in the way of a vote,
and indicated that Gallinger was one
of these senators.
Gallinger quietly replied that he de
sired to be heard on the question, but
had not had an opportunity to speak.
To his statement Penrose retorted that
the New Hampshire senator had assured
him he did not expect to speak on the
Quay case. Instantly Gallinger was
on his feet, and with evident feeling
and with great vehemence, replied as
"I don’t know whether I don’t sjieak
the truth,” hotly replied Penrose, “or
whether the senator from New Hamp
shire failed to tell me the truth.”
Gallinger retorted that the whole
proceeding of Penrose was unmanly
and beneath his notice.
The debate on the appropriation bill
developed difference of opinion, as
Jones, of Arkansas, offered a susbtitute

Enumerators— Four Schedules
Instead of Ten.
Ii*the census building a great room
is now the scene of bustling activity,
the work of preparing portfolio* for
use by enumerators in the coming
count of the population being fairly
under way. These portfolios, of whit
ish-brown pasteboard, hinged together
with black cloth, are 18 inches long
and 10 wide and tied with four sets of
tape. The tape used is not that “red
tape” which to the ordinary mind sig
nifies circumlocution and delay. The
law requires speed in the census of
1900 and common every day white cot
ton tape will fasten the schedule-filled
portfolios in their round from habita
tion to habitation. For convenient, ac
curate and rapid enumeration the Uni
ted States has been divided into 800
supervisors’ districts, and these in turn
iuto about 50,000 enumeration dis
tricts, or E. D.’s. as they are called in
the census offioe. Each of the 50,000
enumerators is yet to be appointed, so
on the portfolios a blank space is left
for his name.
The last census found the unhappy
enumerator loaded down with from 10
to 13 schedules, each having volumin
ous instructions, to master which re
quired considerable mental ability and
lower of memory. That census was
taken under a law which required enu
merators to ask many obnoxious ques
tions. The census act of 1900 happily
for all does not require these disagree-
j able queries.
Four schedules, not 10, cover enu
merator’s inquiries in 1900; schedules
requiring information about popula
tion, vital statistics, manufactures and
agriculture. In cities the enumerator
