Denials and pretenses are abandoned foi

out in the Cape Town dispatches, which the

in strong force, have reached a point half
way between the Orange river and Cape
Town; the other that every able-bodied
loyalist In the colony has bee called to
arms to repel the coming foe.
I'eople here who understand the great
nderance of Dutch iv Cape Colony

that the Cane government would never
adopted such a desperate measure
were it not the last and only chance. For
if the Euglish farmers obey the call, the
Dutch wil be forced into rebellion. They
will not sit idly by while their kin are
lighting a race war under their eyes.
In a preamble to the call to arms, which
has been issued in twenty-seven districts

the ('ape government says:
Owing to the fact that the armed forces of
the enemy hay- penetrated south of Carnavon

promptly, and the government calls upou j
loyal inhabitants to aid the military in this !
duty by the formation of a colonial force for
the sole and exclusive purpose of repelling in
vasion, guarding lines of communication and
maintaining order in the disturbed districts.
Volunteers should enroll with the civil com
missioners in their respective districts. They
will be paid 5 shillings per day, with rations,
forage, arms and horses. The term of service
i 3 not expected to exceed three months. This
notice especially applies to the districts
named in it, but other districts may assist.
Enlisting will begin Thursday.
It is estimated that no fewer than 1,500
Cape Dutch have joined the invaders who
have penertrated further south than ever.

Now it's Joel P. Heatwole's turn.
From the banks of the Hot Springs, or
some other retreat for he weary, the third
district congressman has written to sev
eral members of the third district's re
publican legislative delegation to inquire
what are the prospects for him to get the
backing of the solid delegation in the
event of his becoming a candidate.
The Journal's statement of yester
day that Bixby is not a candidate is gen
erally accepted as accurate. His failure
to make any positive statement on his own
account it; taken to mean that he merely
wishes to have somtehing to go on when
he throws his influence to some other
candidate if he should choose to do so.
It is the prevailing impression that
Heatwole wants to take the field because

Panama Canal Company Hopes to

Washington, Jan. 2. —Senator Perkins of
California, who has made frequent visits
to the White House relative to the Xicar
aguan canal project, is confident that the
senate will pass the canal bill in Febru
ary. He says:
The impression seems to have gone abroad
that the United States cannot and will not
do anything toward canal legislation until
England is heard from. This is not correct,
; for I know that the cacal bill will be called
up in the senate by Mr. Morgan without ref
erence to the Hay-Pauncetote treaty, and un
less I am radically mistaken about the senti
ment of the majority of the senators, the bill
will be passed. It will be held back unril
the end of January, out of courtesy to Great
I Britain, to give reasonable time for consider
ation of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty, but the
senate does hot intend to wait on Lord Salis
j bury, as there is nothing requiring the
treaty-making power to hold the bill in abey
ance pending ratification of the convention,
and it will not be held.
I am satisfied that England will accept the
treaty as amended. She knows that we want
ilie caual and will have it without reference
to any compact.

Canal company, has returned to Washing

Germany will combine to guarantee the
bonds of the Panama canal corporation
and thus enable it to finish that waterway.
M. Hutin wants the United States to as
sume the present indebtedness of the Pan
ama Canal company and to complete the
big ditch, and as he evidently has secured
powerful backing in the senate, he be
lieves he will succeed, at least to the ex
tent of muzzling th» Nicaraguan project
for many years.
Senator Morgan, chairman of the com
mittee on interoceanic canals, says that
while it may be true that the Panama
canal can be completed for $100,000,000,
and that it might be a better waterway
than the Nicaragua ditch, nevertheless
the $100,000,000 expended would represent
only an equity in the enterprise. The
$400,000,000 already sunk in the De Les
seps scheme-is at....**.;. . cpivsented by
shareholders, arid these will demand dol

"The Danama ditch," says Senator Mor
gan, "is hopelessly loaded down with ob
ligations, and this government should
never assume them. It is better to spend
from $200.000,000 to $250,000,000 and have
an American canal free from complica
tions and indebtedness."

A FAMOUS MAN
Hon. Ignatius Donnelly Suc
cumbs to Heart Disease.
THE END IS UNEXPECTED
Though His Powers Had Been Fail-
ing for Several Months.
AN EVENTFUL CAREER CLOSES
He Had Made a Name in Litera
ture an Well as in :
Ignatius Donnelly, author, statesman
and scholar, died suddenly at midnight
last night in Minneapolis, after an illness
of only three hours. His illness and
death came at the home of his father-in
law, Martin Hanson, 3022 Twenty-eighth
avenue S, where he had gone with Mrs.
Donnelly t 0 spend the night.
For several years it had been Mr. Don
nelly's habit to emerge once a week from
his retreat at Nininger, coming to Minne
apolis and spending a day at the office of
the Representative, his weekly paper, re
vising the proofs of his editorials for the
week. As usual since his second mar
riage, Mrs. Donnelly accompanied him yes
terday, going directly to her father's
home, while the venerable editor met his
associate, Edgar A. Twitchell, at the
Brunswick hotel about 2 o'clock. From
there he went to the Tribune building,
spending some time at work and appear
ing to be in his usual spirits. He then
went to the Hanson residence, where the
family had supper together. About 9
o'clock he complained of feeling badly,
and went upstairs to bed. In about an
hour he was taken with a fit of choking
and awakened Mrs. Donnelly. She helped
tim to a chair, and he seemed to get re
lief, but was soon gasping for breath
again, and a physician was sent for. Dr.
W. B. Murphy, who lived some fifteen
blocks away, responded at once, but did
not reach the bedside until nearly 11. He
at once declared it a serious attack of
heart failure, with small hope for recov
ery. He worked hard for the life, using
every expedient to revive the fast sinking
man, but in about an hour, without even
recovering consciousness, the patient al
most imperceptibly passed from life into
death. Not a struggle, not a sign of recog
nition, marked his last hour of life.
Though seldom ill, Mr. Donnelly has not
been in vigorous health for some time
past, and seemed to be feling the weight of
his years. The day before his death he
had complained of the choking sensation
which marked his mortal attack.. His as
sociate, Mr. Twitchell, had noticed yester
day afternoon how feeble he was growing,
and said he was not surprised to hear of
the sage's death.
The funeral will be held Friday after
noon from the residence of the son, Stan
J. Donnelly, 817 Portland avenue, St. Paul.
A PIONEER JIIXXESOTAX
He Had Resided in This State Since
No Minnesota man was better known
in the world at large than Ignatius Don
nelly, theorist and scholar. At home, he
was chiefly known for his life-long con
nection with politics.
Practically the whole of his life was
spent in Minnesota, whither he turned
with prescient eye when, with his young
wife, he left the old home to seek fame
and fortune in the new west.
Ignatius Donnelly was born in Phila
delphia in 1831. His father, Dr. Philip
Carroll Donnelly was a native of Ireland,
who bad attained to respect and prom
inence in Philadelphia as a physician.
Ignatius early showed his bent for study
He graduated from the Philadelphia high
school in 1849, and at once began the
study of law. He was admitted to the
bar in 1853, and at once showed marked
ability. In 1855 he declined a nomination
for the legislature by the democratic party, |
with which he had at first affiliated, be- i
cause he did not agree with the party on
the slavery question.
Early Aspirations at Mil Inner.
Late in the year 1855 he was married
to Miss Catherine McCaffery of Philadel
phia, and their wedding tour was a west
ern journey in search of a home. He
foresaw the coming struggle between the
free and slave states, and wishing to set
tle far from the scene of the conflict,
turned to Minnesota. The town was
named for another early settler, but Don
nelly was really the chief promoter. He
purchased a 600-acre tract, and laid out
the town site, which at that day prom
ised to be a leading city. He built a
home here, and founded a weekly paper,
devoted to booming Nininger, and in gen
eral to attracting immigration toward
Minnesota. He took a front rank at once
at the bar of the then frontier state, and
at the first state election was chosen
lieutenant-governor. He was re-elected
in 1861, and in 1862 was elected to con
gress from the second district, which he
represented until 1868. His aggressive
spirit had made him many enemies, and
his battles with Elihu Washburn, Gov
ernor Hubbard and Governor Ramsey led
finally to his joining the liberal republi
can movement in 1870. From this it was
only a step to the greenback movement,
and from this he drifted successively into
the farmers' alliance, the populist, and
latterly the midroad populist movements,
being always a leading spirit.
As a Literary Man.
Mr. Donnelly was a deep student from
his early days, and first attracted atten
tion with an e3say on the Sonnets of
Shakspere. But when he gave to the
world his theory of the Baconian author
ship of Shakspere's plays, he gave the
world a literary sensation which was re
vived only last summer by the publica
tion of his latest book, "The Cipher on
the Plays and' on the Tombstone." His
"Atlantis" and "Ragnarok" propounded
startling scientific theories. Later, the
political and industrial movements arous
ing all his energies, he gave to the world
"Caesar's Column," and several other
polemic works, which he invested with
much literary charm.
Mr. Donnelly's domestic life was always
simple and retired. By his first wife
he had several children, of whom two
survive him—Stan J. Donnelly, an attor
ney of St. Paul, and Ignatius Donnelly,
Jr., a practicing physician of Butte, Mont.
His first wife died some years ago, and
Feb. 22, 1898, somewhat of a sensation
was created by his marriage to Miss
Marion Hanson of Minneapolis, who had
been his assistant in the Representative
office. Their married life was very
happy, and his young widow is deeply
bowed by her bereavement.

Mr. Goodnow said it was absurd to
charge the missionaries with causing the
Boxer war. They were simply hated by
the Chinese as one part of the great for

American troops sent to China, and he
also praises the work of a little band of

Governor-elect Samuel R. Van Sant
dropped anchor in Minneapolis this morn
ing and was at once surrounded by an
axious crowd of fellow citizens of the re
publican faith anxious to know "how 1
about" certain apointments. The weather
had not dampened or cooled their ardor
in the least, and so far as the governor
could see, they were as hungry as on the
occasion of his former visit.
The governor made straight for the of
fice of his guide, philosopher and friend,
Judge Robert Jamison. The judge ex
plained that he had given out no informa
tion concerning the private secretaryship
and his excellency remarked, "Xo more
have I? Where did they get it?" The
judge said he? didn't know, and then they
began talking of the seven large appoint
ments the governor has to make. But
they were unable to find good men for
them up to the time of going to press.
