F'AIJNtEFOTE TO RETIRE.
Great Britain to Lose Her Ambassa

New York, Jan. 29. A special to the
Ilerald from Washington, says: It is
now Considered as settled at the Brit
ish embassy that Lord Pauncefote will
retire as :imlMS,-dor of Great Britain
to the United States April 1st. There
have been reports that Lord Paunce
fote period of service would, in view
of the South African war, be extended
another year, but so far as recent ad
vices indicate, this will not be the case.
Lord Pauncefote's ! departure will
make Baron Fa va. the Italian ambas
sador, the dean of the" diplomatic corps
here. Lord Pauncefote's successor
has not been selected, according to in
formation current here. Two diplo
mats who are considered especially
available by the British authorities are
Mr. Sanderson, .under secretary of
state, who holds the position 'occupied
by Lord- Pauncefote before his trans
fer to Washington, and who is a broth
er of the British consul-general in New
York' and Sir Henry Howard, minis
ter of Great Britain in the Netherlands.
In diplomatic circles it is believed
that the British government will in

Weather Bureau Bill Knocked Out in
Washington, Jan. 29. -The bill for the
re-organization and improvement of the
weather bureau, which includes a pro
vision for ipensioning disabled and aged
employes of the service, received a black
eye in the house. The bill was bitterly
fought by the opponents of the civil
pension rolls on account of -the life ten
ure provisions it contained, and it was
sidetracked on a test vote of 57 to 53.
Although the speaker ruled that it re
mained unfinished business when the
house was again in committee of the
whole, the opponents of the measure be
lieve the action of the day kills it.
A lively scrimmage occurred ovec the
Sulzcr resolution to investigate Secre
jary Gage, which the ; committee in
rules remommended should le ' sent to
the ways and means committee, as the
latter committee has the response of the
secretary in its possession.

be restored o her former condition, and
the unavoidable work of partition will
be accomplished peacefully, though per

The Rossija asserts that) , it was not

Japanese alliance is inevitable. It is
only a question of time. In the mean
while it is important that control of the

i Many Noted Name. ,'
LONDON, ' Jan. 29. There is com'
roent in i London on the discrepancy
between -the Boer account" of the re-
apture. ofSpionkop and that sent by
General Puller. The latter says not a
word about the Boers scaling the hill
and attacking the British trenches,
and capturing 150 men who had hoisted
the white, flag, as at Majuba hill. In
steadr he spoke of the m.-fintenance of
"the best traditions of the British
army." There is not much doubt that
the Boer account is correct. It is by
no means boastful.
The London military critics' have
given ti hope of saving Ladysmiih,
which is undoubtedly snort of food and
aminunition. The garrison went on
short rations December 2d.
As it retuired a month for Buller to
recover from his earlier defeat at Co
lenso. it; is not thought he can pull his
disheartened army together now in
time to do 'anything for Ladysmith.
London, awaits anxBiusly forthe Boers
to movei They seem to be fighting on
a -ery definite, plan, and it is thought
they may attack Buller or assault Lady-smi'-h.

The . senate and assembly of California,

ganizing. The republican majority of"

it was conceded that it was necessary
to reorganiie. This was done by the
re-election uf the orncers and many
attaches of the regular-session.

were severely denounced, and the re
publican papers which, according to
the governor, were j in a mea-uire re

LOUD CRITICISM, j

Trouble Is Feared.
London, Jan. 27. TIioukIi criticism
of the government and its methods of
handling the war is unabated, it is safe
to say that when parliament .meets on

of censure, with, perliaps, more than
the usual impasionrid denunciation
of the Various departments of the ad

and such is the strength of the conser
