CAPE TOWN, July 9.— W.P.
Schemer, Prime Minister of the
Colony of Good Hope, says the
Cape government regards the
Transvaal reform proposals as
adequate and calculated to in
sure a peaceful settlement. The
Colonial Premier, however, rep
- resents thfi j^rikand^«!eme.nt.
Sir John Gordon Sprigg, for
mer Prime Minister and Colonial
Secretary, who is an ardent im
perialist, considers them totally
inadequate to meet the just
claims of the Out landers and al
together less than Sir Alfred
Milner, Governor of the Cotoiiy
and British Commisisoner for
South Africa, demanded of Pres
ident Kruger at the Bloemfon
Wolseley barracks to clear the street.
•This was done iii short order. When
quiet was restored the police had the
damaged cars conveyed to the burns.
T. H. Smallman, vice president of the
street railway company, was sighted
by the mob ami chased to the police
station. After the appearance of the
military three citizens wore arrested
for refusing- to leave the streets. They
are named Benjamin Campbell, Charles
Mills and William McLean. They will
be charged with rioting after the act
had been rend- a very serious offense.
Other arrests will he made, as the po
lice 'nave the names of many.
More trouble is expected to-morrow.
The company declares an attempt will
be made to run the cars, the protection
of the city being demanded.
The street railway is owned by the
Everett syndicate of Cleveland. Ohio,
ard the company has been known for
its good treatment of employes. The
strikers by their refusal to arbitrate
and now by this rioting have ali-natfM
public sympathy so that the company
is likely to have the popular support
on its side when operating the road to
days afterward James Bender, alias Den
ver Kid. and Dick Williams, alias Trilby,
both colored, were arrested by James
Ramsey, chief of police of Topeka. and
when questioned Denver Kid fastened the
crime on Trilby.
To-day Sheriff True of Wabunsee Coun
ty brought Trilby to Alma to-lodge- him in
jail. When he arrived ■< mob of at least
200 men met him rind his prisoner at the
Rock Inland depot, but was foiled until
the prisoner was being placed in jail. Then
Trilby, was seised, dragged a distance of
a block with a rope around his nock, and
strung up to a telegraph pole. There he
hung for six minutes, when. he was cut
down by Marshal Pippert. The crowd, be
lieving him dead, permitted the officers to
take rim back to jail, and dispersed.
H. T. Tandy lived at Creighton. Mo.
His father is a doctor of that place and
also is in the drug business. Harry was
a drug clerk.
The. people of Alma and the country sur
rounding: are greatly excited, and while
great precautions are being taken to pre
vent further trouble, it is feared the mur
derer will be again taken from the jail.
