KIMBERLEY, Cap© Colony, April 6.—
The train bearing the body of Cecil

One of Mr Rhodes' moat intimate ac

the Associated Press:
'He drew up his will in the same spirit
in which he approached all great under
takings. In his most important tasks he
merely sketched the outline and left oth
ers to fill in the details. His trustees are
given plenary power. In the matter of
the scholarships Mr. Rhodes saw the
scheme was so vast that an attempt to
too rigidly lay down the tines might re
sult in harm, so beyond endeavoring to
meet the legal requirements he tried to
leave the fulfillment of his plans to those
with whom, during his lifetime, he had
frequently discussed them."
"When the trustees can meet and all
the preliminary details are settled a re
quest will be made to several prominent
Americans to form a ccmmlttee in the
United States to act in conjunction with
the British body and assume certain re

The St. James Gazette referring to the

PRINCETON, N. J., April s.—President
Patton this afternoon said of the gift of
the late Cecil Rhodes to the University
"This extraordinary «ift is an occasion
for general rejoicing. It will strengthen
the tie between Great Britain and her
world-wide colonies, and that is a part
of imperialism which should have the
heartiest approval of us all.
"It will foster the sentiment of good
will between the two great English
speaking nations, and In this way serve
the cause of Christian civilization. It
will bring the influence of English Ideals
to bear upon our American system of
education, and that will be a distinct ad

British youth to study in our leading
American universities. Both countries

on the secretary of state for his views In
In a postscript to his letter the governor
reports the arrival in New Orleans of
Gen. Sir Richard Campbell Stuart, an aid
of the^ British, army, on a tour of in
spection of the transport service in the
vicinity of New Orleans. He also incloses
a number of newspaper clippings ana
statements from individuals as to the
operations of the British remount service.
a transcript of the proceedings in court j
and a number of letters from individuals
protesting against the continuation of the
President Orders Investigation.
The most important of these probably
is an affidavit of one Tourres, Betting
forth his engagement for service on th-3
transport Milwaukee, signing articles be
fore the British vice consul, being as
signed to duty by Lieut. Thompson, of
the Yeomanry of the British army, and
acting under his orders to Cape Town,
thence to Durban, where horses weiv de
livered to British officers in uniform, and
where the men were not allowed to ko
ashore "unless lie would agree to sign
with the recruiting officer and join vie
British army." He also alleged that the
Milwaukee was conmmanded by army
Secretary Hay's letter in answer to that
from the governor says:
"I have received your letter of March
29 and submitted it to the president, who
directs me to inform you that he has re
quested an opinion from the attorney
general in regard to the points of law
involved In the matter to which it refers,
and has also ordered an immediate in
vestigation of the facts in the case."
The attorney ger.eral's opinion is dated
April 4. He says: "It seems necessary
to say nothing as to the duties and pow
ers of the state officials, except that they
Involve, of course, the exercise of the
usual civil means of preserving the
peace, in the improbable event of its
breach In the manner supposed to be
suggested by Pearson. I cannot belie\re
that the latter contemplates taking ihe
law into his own hands in defiance of the
state and federal governments; nor does
he threaten to act without the president's
pt-rrnission, which, it is needless to say,
he will not receive. Nor can I believe
that he expects any such permission. H'g
object Is doubtless to bring forcibly to
the attention of the government that lie
considers the proceedings of the British
government equivalent to carrying on war
upon our territory."
Kinds I'ointN to .lustily Trade.
The attorney general says that the
principal question, and a delicate one, is
whether there has been a departure of
neutrality on the part of our go\ em
inent in this matter, and notwithstand
ing the urgency of I'c-arson and Gov.
Heard he '"thlnk3 this government should
not take any action without mature con

tral nation is.-jbL forbid to its eltizssM.
3ut the weight of authority Is the othor
way. A rule of law now fully a.sr. cd
upon is a neutral nation shall not give
aid to one of the belligerents In the car
rying on of war. Carrying on commerce
with a belligerent in the manner usual
before the war is not giving such aid.
The mere increased demand for warlike
articles and their increased quantity in
the commerce does not make that com
merce cease to be the same as before the
"It does not seem to be settled that
the fact that the belligerent government
is a purchaser makes, the neutral gov
ernment's permission of the commerce a
departure from the obligation to give no
aid to the belligerent.
Duty fn Municipal Law.
The fact that the neutral merchants
give aid to the belligerents from motives
of gair.-s.eking does not relieve their
government from its obligation to pre
vent, otherwise it would be lawful to
suppiy warships with coal, cannon and
powder. The diiliculty lies in drawn.g
the line between the right of carrying
on, and of governmental permission to
carry on, the commerce usual before the
war, and the obligation of the govem
mtnt and citizens of the neutral govern
ment to give no aid to the belligerents."
The attorney general adverts at some
length to the difficulty in disposing of
these cases, each different from the
ether, and without exact precedent, and
I he falls back upon the principle re-cogniss- ■
ed in international law that the prepon- i
derant characteristics must control the I
determination. He enters into long ci
tation of cases in the nature of prece
dents, and says in conclusion:
"While discussions of such matters
have, as in the Alabama claims cases,
principally concerned war vessels and ex
peditions by sea, It cannot be doubted
that aid given to an army engaged in
actual warfare stands upon the same j
fee ting as aid given to a fleet so en- •
gaged, .since both equally involve a taking
I art by the neutral In furthering th*
military operations of the belligerent,
; Nor should the municipal Jaws of Eng
land arid the United States, or of other
countries, by principally dealing with
such vessels and expeditions, fall to ob-
Mrv the fact that aid can as well ho
i given to military operations of the bel-
I ligorent the one way as the other, by
I rvef-edings carried upon the territory
"From all that ha 3 been said, I think
that it may be concluded that, in deter
mining whether a transaction of the
kind referred to, which in one respect is
considerable In character, is yet not en
titled to enjoy the rlg-hts belonging to
commerce, but is prohibited to the neu
tral nation and its people as being an
aid to one of the belligerents in carrying
on war against the other, the criteria
are practically impossible to specify, and
enumerate in advance. Each caso thnt
arises must be considered in all Its cir
cumstances and determined accordingly.
"In the case before us there Is no
statement of facts by you upon which to
giv« oficial opinion as to the law, and I
do not understand that one has been re
quested. A numbtr of allegations and
some testimony has been sent me, and
they aro sufficient to challenge attention.
But the first thing to be done Is to ascer
tain what allegations are true. I have
endeavored, aa well as T could. In ad
vance, to indicate the law to be applied
to them, and srhall only add that, among
the points by which to be guided, are
the systematic character of the transac
tions, their greater or less extensiveness,
their persistence in time, or the reverse,
their governmental character or the ab
sence of It. their objects and results,
and principally, of course, their relations,
if any, with the prosecution of the mili
tary operations In South Africa."

The late incorporators of the Tontine
Savings association are making plans to
continue the business In Minnesota along
the same lines aa they wore formerly
conducted. T-he only practical differ, oos
will be that the concern will be a part

under the .same name as formerly.
They are at the present time Betting
out their printed matter, and urrati,;n;ij
the details of tha partnership scheme and
will be ready to issue contracts to all
who desire to take a chance of getting
two for one in a short period of time.
They contend that under a -partnership
arrangement the state will have no jur
isdiction in the matter, and so long as
they live up to the terms of their con
tract they can in no way be, urn.-liable
to the law, as their plan la perfectly
In support of their plan they cite the
fact that since the receiver was appoint
ed two weeks ago there has not been
one claim presented against the old Ton
tine Swings association. They also con
tend that no complaint was ever made
by contract holders in the old associa
tion which brought into discredit the
methods of doing business, and so long
as they adhered strictly to a legitimate
business they can see no reason wb-v a
receiver should have been anointed."
There was about $100,000 in assets turn
ed over to the receiver, and this receiv
er was appointed without being asked
for by any of the creditors. While noth
ing can be definitely learned as to what
course the new organization will pursue
it Is thought it will, through some out
side party, secure possession of all out
standing contracts of the Tontine Sav
ings association, and in that manner will
be creditors or the association from
which it was deposed, and by becom
ing creditors and holding all the con
tracts Will then be in position to con
tinue doing business with all Its old pa
trons in the new organization.
Out of the assets turned over to the
receiver there will be about $25,000 Which
will probably revert to the incorporate
as it cannot be turned in as attachable
assets, and with this $25,000 the new or
ganization can start in on their new ca
reer in fairly good shape. It is under
stood that their legal advisers inform)
them that their plan is a legitimate one,
and they need have no fear of molesta

Minneapolis Ice Companies Tired of

The ice companies of Minneapolis have
entered into an agreement as to the
prices and quantity of ice they will de

price has not been raised above that of
former years, but the quantity is just
what the people bargain for. The it* en
who deliver the ice will be furnished
with a pair of scales with which it will
be necessary for them to weight the ice
which they deliver.
The ice companies agre to give 100
j pounds of Ice each day for a certain

have been giving double this amount.
and now they propose to stop it, and if
. people want more ice they will have to

be expected to serve so many customers
with their load, and in order to do This
