On January 8 it was roported in
London that Dr. Jameson- had
been sentenced by tlio judges at
Pretoria to bo shot. Also that ho
would havo been shot by a mob
ort tho street, had tho Boor com
mandant not threatened to shoot
tho first man who raised a. rifle.
It was at that dato belioved that
Emporor AVilliam,s attitude to
ward Groat Britain was deliberate
and long and carefully planned.
Tho Ashantoo mattor and Britain's
support of Italy in Abyssinia aro
supposed to have caused tho Em
peror's rosentmont beforohand.
To mako mattors worso between
tho two countries, it was supposed
m .London mat tno roporiou
intention of President Krucger to
demand an indemnity ofS2,500,
000, on account of Dr. Jameson's
raid, was the outcomo of tho in
terview the Boor Secrotary of
State had in Berlin with Emperor
Great Britain was determined
not to bo caught unprepared for
war. Orders wore sent to Ports
mouth, Dovonport and Chatham
for tlio immediate commissioning
of a flying squadron of warships.
It was to consist of tho following
six vessols; firstclass battleships
Rovongo and Royal Oak, each of
14.500 tons: firstclass stool cruis
ers Gibraltar, 7700 tons, and Thes
eus, 7350 tons, and the second
class steel cruisers Charybdis and
Hermiono, each 43G0 tons. This
squadron was to bo ready for soa
within six days, and later news
shows it was ready a day earlior.
In addition Admiial Sir Fre
derick Geoi Donham Bedford,
commanding tho Capo of Good
Hono and AVost Africa station,
was ordored to proceod to Delagoa
Bay, on Board tho flagship St.
George, a first class Btool cruisor
of the Bame tonnago and equip
ment as tho Gibraltar. She was
on her way there, accompanied
by anothor cruisor, before tho
orders wore made public in Eng
land. Admiral Bedford was in
structed to report immediately
what additional ships woro neces
sary to reinforce his squadron and
they would bo sent him as prompt
ly as possible. At tho sauio time
tho greatest activity became mani
fest in the docicyarus, anu juo
Naval Reserve lists woro being
proparcd for an emergency. The
military authorities no longor at
tempted to concoal tlio fact that
they woro preparing for the pos
sibility of war.
A dispatch to tho Times from
Berlin said it was explained that
tlio intention of Geamany to send
troops to tho Transvaal was only
for tho protection of Gorman resi
dents, that no arrangement had
beon made previously with Portu
gal and, after hearing that Dr.
Jameson had started, Germany
only had timo to telegraph an ox
nlimntion of intended action to
Lisbon. Tho nows of Dr. Jame
son's dofoat arrived boforo Portu
gal had timo to reply.
The London Chronicle had it
upon authority that the Gorman
Council did not fully approve of
Emporor "William's telegraphing
to Prosidont Kruoger, but tho
Emporor insisted upon having his
own way, and handed tho message
himself to tho telegraph bureau,
ordering that a copy of it bo im
parted to tue semi oiuoiai juuruuiu.
On tho 10th it was announced
that a second squadron was to bo
commissioned, and tho combined
fleet thus mobilized would form
the most powerful one ever put
nflnut. It would consist of oich
toon battleships and cruisors, with
fifteen torpedo-boat catchers, aud
tho number might bo increased

"Washington, Jan. 11. Repre
sentative' Towno, 6f Minnesota, to-day,
presented a resolution direct
ing tho Foreign Affairs Committee
to report on tho advantage and
practicability of the establishment
of a pormauout court of interna
tional arbitration, representing
i tho United States and the British
Empiro, with jurisdiction extend
ing to all controversies between
tho two governments, except thoso
involving tho honor or tho autono
my of ono of tho parties. Also a
resolution directing tho President,
if not incompatible with public
interests, to ontor into negotia
tions with Great Britain, with a
viow to tho speedy and amicablo
adjustment of tho dofinito location
of tho boundary lino! between this
country and tho possessions of
Groat Britain from Lake Superior
to tho Lako of tho Woods. Both
resolutions wore roforred to tho
Foreign Affairs Committee.
London, Jan. 13 Tho "West
minster Gazette, this afternoon,
touching upon tho misunderstand
ing botween Great Britain aud tho
United States, says it sees a dis
tinct break in tlio clouds, and
hopes that a satisfactory settle
ment to Great Britain will bo ef
fected with Venezuela diiect, and
intimates that tho Urazihan Min
ister is closely identified with tho
last proposed solution of the con
troversy. London, Jan. 11 An editorial
in tho Times this morning suggests
that a strong hint from tho United
States to Prosidont Crespo would
bo opportuno, to convince him of
tho grotosquoness of tho idea that
Amorica will support any demands
Vonozuola chooses to mako. "Eng
land," says tho Times, "is willing
for a direct settlement, but Vene
zuela must tako tho initiative
Tho obvious course is for
Vonozuola to ask tho Unit
ed States to placo hor onco
more in communication with Groat
Britain. If Prosidont Cleveland
acceded to such a request, it would
go lar to restore the toolings ot
amity that subsisted between Eng
land and tho United States prior
to his Message. "Wo aro gratified
at tho spirit displayed by Amo
rica in faco of Germany's attitude
and it is remarkably encouraging
that Washington sought .England's
good offices in tho Transvaal."
Tho Chronicle says: "There is
reason to boliovo that England
will endeavor to resume negotia
tions with Vonozuola on tho basis
of a consideration of tho rights to
tho sottlod districts lying between
British Guiana and A'onezuola.
The question of tho actual lino of
domarkation would bo made sub
ordinate to preliminary investiga
tion as to tho settlement."

"Meredith's Old Coat" is the
tit'o of tho comedy presented, and
its author is Mr. Allderdico of the
U. S. S. Bennington, who took a
loading character in the cast. The
plot is built upon tho disappear
ance of an old coat belonging to-
tho junior momber of the law hnn
of Brown & Meredith. Boforo the
garment went missing tho sonior
member had it on by mistake long
onough to placo an important
document in a pocket, while ite
owner similarly disposed of twa
$500 bills that ho had borrowed
from his partner to pay tho ex
penses of his coming marriage
to Ethel AYood. An Irish
servant girl, who tended the
offico, went through the pockets
and found tho money. Her
astonishment at finding so much
wealth thus carelessly deposited,
was not, however, greater than her
honesty and sue was just return
ing tho bills when a knock wae
hoard on tho door. In hor flurry
sho failed to find tho pocket quick

tho money away in hor owl
clothes to await a bettor opportu

had boon shown by Meredith to a

dress and shavo in poparation for
a dinnor party. , He was not
known to any of tho other people

whom he had beon engaged for

Antigua, AV. I. This missivo fall
ing into the hands of Ktlinl, hor
ongagoment to Meredith breaks
up in a violent storm, in which
tho lianceo gives hor lover no

tho joining of old man AYood,
after deceitful maneuvers to put

The fun of it was that AVood had
