LONDON, June 8. The executive
offices of the Transvaal Government are
in a railway car, -which is shunted on a
switch at Machadorp. President Krug-
cr caused the interior of the coach to be
reconstructed omt time ago, with a
view to contingencies; that t have now

Daily- Express, who went from Lour

was received yesterday. The president
sat; smoking a long pipe, '. die. looked
worried, but his bearing itself was quiet
and determined. - lie d:d not make ihe
least objection to being interviewed.

not end the war. The Burgwers are

The correspondent Suggested that the
war was over, inasmuch as the capitol
had been taken, - i . ,
tf'The capitol," explained Kruger with
energy, what is the capitol? It does
not consist of any particular collection
of bricks and mohar. The capitol of
the Republic, the seat of Government. is
here in this car. There is no magic
about any special site. Out country is
invaded, it is true, but it i9 not con
quered. The Government i still ef
fective.? . ' . . . ; ; : - , ' .
Referring, to the reasons why he left
Pretoria, Kruger said:;
was not foolish nough to be taken
prisoner. I provided this means of loco
motion precisely for the Same reason ' as ,

i "It is necessary that I should be able

That is all. 'Bye and bye this car will

present it enables me ; to keep away
from Pretoria where I 'could be of no
service, and where I should only play
iiito the hands of the enemy.

cf the most picturesque scenes which

rancor, which have brought the house
to the brink of actual riots, at times, dur

ended in a partiotic outburst that stir

pitch of enthusiasm.
During the brief recess, taken within

LENTZ AN OBSTRUCTIONIST.
Washington. June 7. Durincr the
closing hours of t! House, Lent; 'got
in another word about the Cocur
d'Alenc testimony, which drew from
lacey,- Kepublican of Iowa, a shot to
the effect that the minority view of the
Coeur d'Aletre trouble had not been
sustained in Idaho yesterday, where
the Democrats, had endorsed Governor

At any rate, he was- not endorsed in

the remark that $h Sons of Veterans
wouki like to read the story of how
their fathers were confined in the "bull
pen" at Wardrver, said he would not
object, and tbe resolution was adopted,
Dayton moved that the House recede
and concirr in- the Senate amendment
to the naval bill, continuing, the six
years course for cadets, but providing
that a cadet at Annapolis, front each
Congressional district, should be ap--pointed
every four years. The motion
was agreed to: This action removed
the Ust stumbling block, and finally
passed the naral appropriation bi'.l. t

and at one time managed to get in with

its action, last night, in turning down
the cbnferecs on the Naval bill, for

change, and today the members voted,
by a large majority, to accept outright

BATTLE WITH D0XERS.
CHINESE TROOPS ENGAGE A
British Marines, with a Machine Gun,
to. Force the; Road to the
LONDON. June f, special dis
patch from Sluitighai, dated 7:jto'f- m.
today, says: -The 'Dowager "Empress
has ordered General Neili St . Chong.
with .3000 men, to protect the railroad
at Peking. A severe fight has occurred
with the" "Boxers,' whose ranks in
clude many soldiers from the other
general commands.: When- the battle
ended, 200 dead were left, on the field.
The 'dispatch goes on to say: "One
hundred and eighty British atrarincs,
with a machine gun, are alout to force
the passage from Tien Tsin to Peking.
Altogether, about Qew British have been
landed from the Heel, a greater number
than have landed from the conibinct
vessels of the otlicr powers. This evi
dence of Great Britain's intention to
assert her position strongly gives great
satisfaction here." ! - . '
WHO THE "BOXERS" ARE.
Such confusion as exists as to pre.
cisely who and what the Chinese ''Box
ers are is probabiy due to the rapidity
and frequency with 'which the nitivc
seeret Societivs-of China 'change their
names when they desire to continue
their organization andl purposes free
from the survtiJlatice ot the govern
ment. When at last an edict oi sup
pression is isncd . the society imly
takes a new title (and goes oiias if
nothing had happened." .
; The society of Boxers is supposed to
number eleven millions of nun. It wat
originally a sort of 'law and or!t-r
league, organized for protection anainjt
the baivJits with which the province of
Shan-img was infested. Its tianie was
then Ta Tan llwcl, whkh mean "The
Society of the Great Sword."
It is a law and order, league gone
wrong. As this society became 11101c
powtTfut many dishonest and designing
persons entered . it, and in ni!tin;crrii
cases directed its: efforts agairwt per
sonal enemies whom they - represented;
to be bandits and lawless person'.'
Some of these victims, looking Jor lu.tp
from the persecutions of the Great
Sword Society,' turned to the Christian
missionaries, , especially, it is said . the
German Catholics. They profesrd
conversion and the missionaries sought
to protect them. , -
A scries of ' outrages on Christians
followed until, in last October, the
Christian nations forced the govern
ment to send a force against the Great
Swords. There was a battle, followed
by the report of the Governor of Shan
Tung that the so-called rebel were
honest country folk.
: Then the Great Sword Society disap
peared, by edict, and in its place sprang
ready-made the "Universal Society of
Boxers," with the old organization and
purposes and with the added nlca of
fighting all iorcign influence -miscion-ary
or othcrwtse--and of having the
government help it. The operation of
the society and the outrages tommitted
by it have since continued, and have
constantly become bolder. :
The Chinese name for the fociety i
I-Ho-Tuon. the I meaning righteous
ness, the .Ho standing for peace and
Tuon meaning fist.
vAs to the increased influence of Rus
sia at Pckin tlic professor explains it by
pointing e.ut that Russia declined to
join the other powers in making repre
sentations to the Pekin government
with respect to the Boxer movement,
basing her Tcfuial upon-the fact that
she is an Asiatic; power.
