London, April 29. Referring
to aspoech mado by tho Seoretary
of Stato for tho Colonics, Joaoph
Chamberlain, early in tho week
explaining that tho massing of a
large British forco in South Africa
was due to tho fnot that tho Boers
had crectpd forts at Pretoria and
Johannesburg, and this was re
garded as a menace to Great Bri
tain, the Speaker declares that the
speech was quito as mischievous
nnd unjustifiable as the remarks
of Captain Coghlan on the Manila
bay incident, and that it has given
greater offence to tho lioers thau
0 ptain Coghlau's words gavo to
tho Germans and Mr. Chamber
Iain's indisoretion was just as use
less as U.igblau'j.
In connection with tho foro
going romarks of Chamberlain,
another indication that tho causes
of friction betweon Great Britain
and tho Transvaal continue in
creasing is given in tho announce
ment by Chamberlain last evoning
that Great Britain had informed
President Krueger that tho dyna
mite concession by the Transvaal
was a breach ol tlie London con
vention. Tho Daily Mail commenting up
on this statement, says: "Krue-
oer's Bauds are fast running out
and tho hour is approaching when
Eugland must tako action."

Kok Land was taken to tho
polico station from a homo on
Makiki Rtroet. It seems that he
was ono of tho inraatps of the
Chinese lnspitul in Kapalamn.
Ho got away last evening and ran
all the way to tho home in quest
ion. Tho pioplo on tho place
tried to got him away, but wore
not successful. Hd persisted in
romaiuiug, so tho polico was tolo
pboned for. It is believed that
the poor fellow is orazed by his
continued illupss. Ho will be re
moved to tho hospital again today.

It was when tho Australia was
hero on her last trip that tho Fort

Among tho goods searched wero
those of Cohen. Mr Stratenioyer
found they were all right so far as
contotits wro concerned. After
the Australia was discharged ho
went over to oheok up anil fouod
that in tho entry made by Cohen,
tho cases were set down as weigh
ing twelvo pounds each, whereas
they were really sixty pounds each.
The matter win reported at once to
tho Collector General wlio said that
Mr. Cohon that if Mr. Cohon
found the boxes woighod sixty
pounds hn would very probably
chaugo his former entry. How
ever, uo Cohen showed np, so tho
Custom House authorities deui.l

the Australia to this port and tbon
see what Cohen would do.
The trap was set and Cohen wns
closely watched. Ho mado at tho
Custom House identically the
samo kind of an entry as on tho
previous occasion. JUo was in very
much of n hurry for his goods nnd
Mr. Strntcmeyer allowed him to
go right along out of tho gate.
When ho had arranged everything
with tho discharging ollicor and
passed out with his goods ho wa
arrested by Mr. Slratoraoyor. The
goods wero seized and Cohen was
taken to tho polico station where
lie later put up bail in the sum of
