Atlanta, Ga., April 14.—The threat
ening trouble of the telegraphers and
■other station employes of the Souther*
tailway and Alabama Great Southern
railway, which has been pending for
several mouths, came to a head here
today, when President Powell, of the
Order of Railway Telegraphers, called
on the telegiaphers to quit work.
The trouble commenced last fall,
when the telegraphers of each division
appointed a committee to go before the
division superintendents and ask a set
tlement of certain grievances.
ings, they say. were refused them, and
an appeal was made to General Super
intendent Harrett, at Washington, and
later to Vice-President and General
Manager Cannon. The officers of the
order state that no satisfaction was re
ceived from these officers, and the
.grievances were finally taken to Presi
dent Speyer, whose secretary said the
president "Was too ill to consider the
matter at this time.
President Powell save the commit
teemen selected to represent the men
have been dismissed to the number of
more than 20, and that dozens of mem-
heis of the Order of Railway Telegraph
ers have been discharged because of
their membership. He says the last
■communication to the officials of the
company contained an offer to arbitrate
the differences. Railroad officials say
the strike has caused them no incon
venience and haB not interfered with
traffic. In a statement which Piesi-
<lent Powell has issued he says:
‘‘The strike was inaugurated for the
io] lowing purposes:
“To secure a reinstatement of its
members who were discharged by the
Southern railway; for the right to-be
heard through committees in the ad
justment of individual grievances; for
a set of rules and rates of pay to gov
ern train dispatchers, telegraphers,
agentsand other‘station employes in
their employment, discipline, etc.; 12
consecutive hours’ work per day, where
one or two telegraphers are employed,
including one hour for dinner; 10 con
secutive hours, including meal hour, in

where more than two dispatchers ■ are
employed; eight consecutive hours for

Washington, April 13.—The long
and bitter struggle over the Puerto
Rican tariff bill ended today when the
house, by a vote of 161 to 153, con
curred in all the senate amendments.
The bill now requires only the signa
ture of the speaker of the house and the
president of the senate before going to
the president for his approval. These
signatures will be attached tomorrow,
and befoie nightfall the bill prooably
will be a law.
As the bill originally passed the
house, it was a simple bill, imposing
15 per cent ot the Dingley rates on
good* going into Puerto Rico from the
United States and coming from Puerto
Rico into the United States.
amended by the senate and today
agreed to by the house, all restrictions
on goods coming into the United States
from Puerto Rico are eliminated, and
certain foodstuffs and other articles
which heretofore have gone into Puer
to Rico free by executive order are ex
cluded from the operation of the 15 per
cent duty imposed on goods entering
the island from the United States. A
complete scheme of civil government
for the island is also attached to the
PactA. Cable Bill.
Washington, April 13.—With little
debate of importance, the senate today
passed the Pacific cable bill, a measure
appropriating $3,000,000 for the con
struction of a cable between San Fran
cisco and Honolulu. . The bill was
unanimously reported by the commit
tee on naval affairs, and that it wa*
passed without serious objection is re
garded as a compliment to the commit
tee. During the greater part of the ses
sion, the District of Columbia appro
priation bill was under consideration.
As passed, it carries neaily $80,000,000.
Roberts Reports That the Boers Were
London, Apiil 13.—The war office
has received the following dispatch
from Lord Roberts:
“Bloemfontein, April 12.—Methuen

April 5 made good resistance for four
hours, and only gave in when out

London, April 14.—A special ‘dis
patch from Eland’s Laagte, dated yes
‘‘Fighting was renewed beyond
Eland’s Laagte this afternoon. The
lloers steadily advanced upon the Brit
ish positions. There was a continuous
rifle fire and the Boer big guns were
in action. The British replied effec
tively, and after two hours’ fighting the
Boers were checked.”
Eland’s Laagte and Wepener still
monopolize attention. At both places
a series of indecisive actions are oc
curring. The Boer report of the fight
ing April 10 at Eland’s Laagte aver*
that the advance on the British camp
was made with the loss of only three
mules and two horses, while the Brit
ish losses, says the same report, must
have been heavy. The bombardment
lasted all day.
Nothing has been learned regarding
the rumor of Colonel Baden-Powell’s
death, nor is there anything tending to
show how long the general advance to
ward Pretoria will be delayed. In the
absence of exciting developments, pub
lic interest centers more upon the per
sonality of the new commanders, and
in the supposition as to who the next
general will be to be sent home.
The announcement of the reoccupa
tion of Smithfield by the burghers, just
received, is no news, as the small Brit
ish force at that place withdrew thence
after the Redrtersburg affair.
It now appears that General Brabant
himself is at Aliwal North, and that
only a portion of his column is at

New York, April 14.— When John
Holstead, a well-known tea merchant,
died last May, he bequeathed sums of
money to numerous public institutions,

due would amount to $25,000. An in

New York, April 13.—A disptch to
the Herald from Puerto Plata, Santo
Domingo, says: The trial of Perico
l’ipin, who recently led a small upris
ing against the government of Santo
Domingo, has ended with the conivc-
tion of the prisoner, who was sentenced
to 20 years’ imprisonment and to pay
a fine of $30,000 in gold. A warship
has taken him to the capital. He will
ask for an appeal.
Fatal Rope-Skipping Contest.
Chicago, April 13.—A special to the
Chronicle from Belleville, Ill., says:
A skipping-rope contest has caused the
death of 11-year-old Freda Poignee and
occasioned the serious illness of two
other children. There was great riv
alry among the three children and oth
ers of the school they attended as to
who could jump the rope the most.
The attending physician said the cause
of the detath of Freda was heart
disease, caused by too violent exercise.
Russia Force at Kushk.
London, April 13.—The Simla corre
spondent of the Tinies says: I learn
from a trustworthy source that the
strength of the Russian garrison at
Kushk is about 30,000 men, including
a mountain battery. The previous re
ports were very much exaggerated. The
Duke of Connaught is mentioned as the
probable successor of the late Sir Wil

before the United States commissioner
and held in $5,000 bail.
English Mining Syndicate Buying.
Joplin, Mo., April 13.—The new
$1,000,000 English mining syndicate
made its first deal in American zinc
property today, purchasing the South
side Mining & Milling Copmany’s 15
mines, and 10 mills at Galena, Kan.,
this evening. The consideration is said
to be about $500,000.

Washington, April 16.—The nou-
ioday, by a vote of 240 to 15, adopted
a resolution for a constitutional amend
ment providing for the election of Uui-
ted States senators by direct vote of »he
people. Fourteen Republicans and one
Democrat voted against it. By the
terms of the resolution, the amedment
submitted to the legislatures is as fol

The remainder of the day was devoted
to the ‘consideration of private pen
sion bills. During the course of the
debate there were several sharp attacks
upon Talbert, of South Carolina, for bis
course in delaying action.
London, April 16.—The forward
movement of the Boers is checked, say*
Lord Roberts. This is taken to mean
not by fighting, but by disposition to
head off their advance and bar their
way to vulnerable points in the line of
British communications His dispatch
to the war office follows:
“Bloemfontein, April 14.—The en
emy’s movements south have been
checked. Wepener is still surrounded,
but the little garrison is holding out
well. Troops are being moved to their
assistance. The health of the troops i*
good, and the climate perfectioA.”
The Boers in Natal appear incapable
of developing an aggiessive movement
at Eland’s Laagte. Lord Methuen is
at Zwartkopfontein, 12 miles east of
Boshof, and is sending s nail, swift
columns through the adjacent couurty.
Lord Chesham, commanding one of
these, encountered a small commando
aobut 10 miles southeast of Zwartkop
fontein. He found most of the faim*
occupied by women and children only.

Ponce, Puerto Rico, April 14.—At no
time since the hurricane of August 8
last, has the condition of the poor of
Puerto Rico been as bad as it is todav.
About 95 per cent of the island may be
placed in the ¡«eon class, which is made
up of a mixture of all races.
other 5 per cent are included the well-
to-do, educated people, such as mer
chants, planters and professional men
and their families.
This better class is able to pass
through such times as are now prevail
ing without actual physical suffering,
but their business affairs are at a stand
still, and have been for a long time,
and this deprives the majority of the
large laboring class of a.means of live
lihood. This large body of laltoring
people furnishes the very cheap and
effective lalx»r which is needed for
agriculture and other work, but at all
times they have been in an under fed
and poorly nourished condition.
Their hardships have been greatly
added to by the scarcity of fruit since
the hurricane, and it is consequently
increased in price. Salt fish, rice and
beans have been imported free of duty
since the hurricane, but little of the
benefit derived from this has gone to
peons, and now, when there is a pros
pect of 15 per cent of the Dingley tariff
being placed on these articles, the price
has been greatly advanced. Merchants
hesitate to import lagre stocks because
of the prospect of free trade, and the
present scarcity of fruit is also a cause
for the advance in prices.
gone up from 5 to 6 centavo* a pound
to 8 and 9, beans from 6 to 12, and, at
one time, a few days ago, to 15 cent
avos a pound, while salt fish has ad
vanced from 6 to about 10 centavos.
No one who understands the situa
tion here will deny that much of the
former good feeling between Puerto
Ricans and Americans has been lost.
Besides, Americans are fewer in num
ber in Puerto Rico today than at any
time since shortly after the troops first
landed, and those departing have left a
long list of defunct companies, bank
rupt business, wrecked schemes and
anxious creditors, who, in some cases,
hold choice collections of worthless
notes and checks. Not only are Amer
icans leaving the island, but large num
bers of Puerto Ricans have gone to
Venezuela, to Santo Domingo and to
Cuba. Three days ago more than 300
natives sailed for Cuba to obtain em
ployment there, and at least 1,000
sailed from this port alone during the
last three months.
Much livestock is also being shipped
to Cuba. The gieateBt I osb to Puerto
Rico in this respect is in the large car
goes of magnificent cattle, which it
will take years to replace.
