London cable: The correspondent of the Times at Lourenzo Marques, tele graphing Tuesday, says: “The wholesale expulsion of British subjects now remain ing in the Transvaal is expected next week. Schutte, military commandant of the Band, is maintains his reputation as an unscrupulous and vindictive official. His latest move was an attempt to break open the vaults of the Rand Safe Deposit Company, ostensibly to obtain their se curities for the residents. It appears that all the bridges on the Natal railway and the Laings Nek tunnel and the bridges on the Free State line have been under mined so as to enable them to be de stroyed at a moment’s notice in the event of Boer retreat. The French liner Gironde has arrived here crowded with military-looking foreigners bound for the Transvaal. These include fifty Russian ambulance men, with Germans, French men, Italians and Greeks. Herr Potts, the- Transvaal consul-general here, has arranged for their conveyance to Pre toria by a special train.” LIVELY TIMES. AMERICAN TROOPS KEEP INSUR GENTS ON THE RUN. Spanish Prisoners Liberated at Florida Blanca—Successful Skirmishes With Robber Hands at Vigan. Washington special: The War Depart ment Saturday received the following ca ble from General Otis at Manila: “Hughes reports from San Jose de Bu ena Vista, western coast of Panay, that he crossed the mountains in a northwest erly direction from San Joaquin, southern Panay, on the 17th and struck the ene my crossing Antigua river, capturing a rifled cannon and Nordenfelt, pursued in surgents through Antigua and Sibalon, their capital, and marched to San Jose. His casualties, one wounded. The ene my's loss was considerable. The entire population fled to the mountains. The heat was oppressive. “MacArthur reports that on the 17th Inst., thirty-five rifles were surrendered at Florida Blanca; that Mcßea, of the Third Infantry, captured three insurgent officers, the wife of General Mescardo, and considerable insurgent property, and liberated three Spanish prisoners; that at Galang he captured ten insurgents, burned seven tons of rice and Insurgent barracks; that Sullivan, of the Thirty fourth Infantry, near San Jose, surprised insurgent force, captured six rifles and all their live stock; that Lieutenant Houle, of the Third Infantry, captured, near Malolos, one officer, twenty-five men and six rifles; that Van Horn, of the Seventeenth Infantry, struck Ladrones at Santa Cruz, killed seventeen, wounded five, captured thirteen and nine rifles. "MacArthur reports that on the 18th inst. the strong position west of Mabala cat, occupied by fifty men, was captured by Mcßea. of the Third Infantry. The enemy left a lieutenant and four dead men in the trenches. Mcßea captured a captain, one man, 130 rifles, several thou sand rounds of ammunition, destroyed the arsenal and a quantity of rice; casualties, one man wounded. “Bates reports that Schwan’s column captured a refitting arsenal at Batangas, and would move eastward on the 19th. Infantry moving in that direction. Enemy retiring, suffering a loss of men and prop erty; our casualties few, mostly slight wounds. A portion of Wheaton’s troops will enter Lemery and Taal to-morrow. They are meeting opposition, which re tards the march. “Six officers, fifty-four enlisted men. four civil employes, eleven friars, all Spanish prisoners, released by Schwan, arrived from Batangas last evening. Nearly two hundred arrived at Manila the day before, via Calamba. "Young, at Vigan, reports a number of successful skirmishes with robber bands with slight casualties among his troops: that Kobbe’s expedition, consisting of Randolph’s Light Battery, the Forty third and Forty-seventh Infantry, con voyed by the naval vessels Helena and Nashville, sailed for Albany province and Samar and Leyte yesterday.” CHURCHILL’S ESCAPE. Further Details of the War Correspond ent’s Flight from Pretoria London cable: Mr. Winston Churchill, in the columns cf correspondence In the Morning Post, supplements his cable nar rative of his escape from Pretoria. Two other officers had planned to escape with him, but they thought they had been discovered by the Boers and returned to prison. On the second day out Mr. Churchill, realizing “with awful force that no exercise of feeble wit and strength could save me from my enemies, and then, without the assistance of that high power which Interferes more often than we are prone to admit in the eternal sequence of cause and effect, I could not succeed, prayed long and earnestly for help and guidance. My prayers, as it seems to me,” he said, “were swiftly and wonderfully answered. I cannot now re late the strange circumstance which fol lowed and which changed my nearly hopeless position to one of superior ad vantage.” After the war, he asserts, he will tell in what manner this change was effected. AN “OMINOUS” EGG. Remarkable Campaign Contribution From a Washington Uen. Washington special: William J. Bryan boarded with Cotier T. Bride when ho was in Congress. Bride owns a hen as well as a boarding house. The hen knows Bryan. On the day of Bryan’s recent arrival at the capital, one of the hens laid an egg which has a singular appendage to one end of the shell. Look ing at this formation from side there is plainly outlined the letter “W.” Revers ing it, there appears the letter “J,” and looking straight at it, there is presented the letter “B,” the whole forming Bryan’s monogram. The egg was shown to Bryan and he laughed heartily when he saw that his initials could be distin guished, without any stretch of the imag ination. The egg will be shipped to Texas,, to Mrs. Bryan. TREASON IN NEGROS. the NATIVE officials plan an UPRISING. Ambush of a Hospital Traln-Amerlcans Compelled to Abandon Their Horses and Packs. Manila. Jan. 21. 10 p. m.: The escort of fifty men of Company C. Thirtieth Infan u’. v Lleutenant Ralston commanding, which was ambushed near Lipa, consist ed of fifty convalescents from the hos pital, who were going to rejoin the regi ment. The insurgents hid in the bushes along the road and opened fire upon the pack train from three sides. The Amer icans, in addition' to their casualties, were compelled to abandon the train, which consisted of twenty-two horses. The lat ter, with their packs, all fell into the hands of the Insurgents, who pursued the retreating escort for three miles along the road, until the Americans were rein forced. Mall advices from Negros bring particulars of the uprising last month In the northern part of the island in which Lieut. A. C. Ledyard, Sixth Infantry, was killed. Instead of being an unimportant revolt of native police, as at first report ed, it appears to have been an attempt, to overthrow American authority. The movement was started by the chief of ficials of the autonomous government, the men who were elected and inaugurated with so much ceremony last November. Eleven of those officials, including the president and several councillors, were lodged in jail on charge of plotting trea son. Several secured release under heavy bonds, but others remain in prison. Gen eral Smith found evidence that the re volting police were following the orders of the autonomous government, which de signed to use the forces under its control to overthrow the Americans. The plot failed through being started prematurely, but Negros was in a state of uneasiness for a week. Two companies of the Twen ty-sixth Infantry were hurried from Ilo ilo to reinforce the garrison at Bacoloa. Tho officials arrested include some of the most prominent men in Negros. It is be lieved that they will be expelled from the Island. DON’T WANT TACTICIANS. Boers Desire Only Recruits Who Can Shoot Straight, London cable: The Cape Town corre spondent of the Times telegraphing Mon day, says: “In view of the exaggerated ideas current that the Boers have been largely helped by foreign military ad visers, it is worth while quoting the state ment of a gentleman who has just arrived from Dclagoa bay. He says that the Boers are at a loss to know what to do and that the advice tendered them being based upon opposing ideas of tactics is valueless and only leads, when adopted, to loss of life. It appears that during General Joubert’s illness, General Schalk berger wired to Dr. Leyds to send men able to shoot straight and experts to make explosives and to work mines, but not useless advisers. From what I saw myself of the Boer forces at. the out break of the war I know that the Boers have a profound distrust and contempt for European military methods and, with the exception of Commandant Albrecht, they have practically no foreign office’s even in the artillery. The Transvaalen . however, acknowledge that they have learned several useful tactical devices from the Free Staters, especially in mak ing entrenchments in least expected places and at the foot of kopjes Instead of only on ridges.” BERGEN’S AWFUL DEED. A Bostcn Base Ball Player Kill* His Wife Two Children and Himself. Brookfield, Mass., special: Martin Ber gen, catcher for the Boston team of the National League, shot and killed his wife and two children and committed suicide at his home here Friday. An ax was the implement used in taking the life of Mrs. Bergen and one of the children, while a razor was employed to cut the throat of the other child, a little girl, and of the man himself. It is thought that the ac tion was due to insanity. It had been suspected for some time that Bergen was a victim of mental derangement. In fact, some of his actions in connection with his baseball managers last season led to the supposition at that time. The affair was discovered by the neighbors, who found the body of Bergen and the girl lying on the kitchen floor. .Further investigation showed that Mrs. Bergen and the little boy also had been killed. Their bodies lay upon a bed in the chamber. Bergen was twenty-nine years of age. His wife was of about the same age. the little girl was eight or nine years old and the boy a little younger. A MEXICAN EARTHQUAKE. Violent Seismic Disturbance Wrecks Build ings Throughout the Republic—Many Casualties. Colima. Mexico, special: An earthquake shock began here at a quarter before midnight Friday and assumed serious proportions at Enimata, many houses be ing badly injured and some of tight con struction wrecked. There was great con sternation and people rushed into the streets, some barely escaping with their lives. Seven people were killed outright and sixty were wounded and are being cared for by local surgeons. It was re ported that the volcano had burst into eruption, but it now appears that the phenomenon was confined to subterra nean manifestations. Local scientific men believe that the earthquake traveled from under the Pacific ocean. The governor of this state has appointed a commission to inspect the churches and public edi fices. vilhile owners of houses injured in the earthquake will be compelled to put them irt condition of security.

In the House Wednesday Mr. Sulzer | charged that an effort was being made to ; suppress the proposed investigation of the i sale of the New York custom house by Secretary Gage. Mr. Sibley commended Gage's course. A debate of three hours followed. Mr. Grosvenor, of Ohio, ex plained that the committee on rules, to which the Sulzer resolution had gone, had not acted because no evidence had been produced before the committee to war rant the ordering of such a lar-reaching , investigation. Mr. Hepburn assailed Mr. ! Sulzer for some of his statements, and de- i dared there ought to be some way to re- i buke a member for slandering honored officials. Later in the day, during the ■ discussion of the appropriation for the army, Mr. Cannon challenged any mem ber to move to strike it out. Mr. Wil- . liams replied to Mr. Cannon in an elo quent speech, in which he affirmed the loyalty of every American citizen to the flag and charged Mr. Cannon with shrewdly issuing a challenge that he knew would not be accepted. The urgency deficiency bill was passed with only one unimportant amendment. An agreement was reached in the Sen ate Wednesday to take the final vote on the pending bill fixing gold as the stand ard of value on February 15. After sev eral days of debate the dragnet resolution of inquiry regarding the conduct of the Philippine war was adopted. It was in troduced by Mr. Hoar, <qnd practically was adopted as a general- substitute for resolutions of a similar, but less extended character offered by Mr. Pettigrew and Mr. Lodge. The resolution offered by Mr. Hale (Maine) as to the seizure of Hour by the British authorities was adopted. The House Thursday passed the Senate bill to extend the powers of the Director of the Census, after striking out the com mittee amendment to- authorize the Di rector to contract for extra printing with private contractors. For an hour Thursday Mr. Wellington occupied the attention of the Senate, con tinuing the debate on the Philippine ques tion. He took as his text the resolution he introduced last Tuesday, declaring that the United States should not take permanent possession of the archipelago, but, after subduing the insurrection— which he sincerely deplored—should con fer on the Filipinos right to govern themselves, affording them such protec tion as they might need. Mr. Allen of fered a resolution directing the Secretary of State to inform the Senate if any per son had been accredited from the Trans vaal to the United States government in any capacity and if such person were of ficially accepted and recognized, and if not, why not. The pension appropriation bill, carry ing $145,245,250, was passed by the House Friday. It was made the vehicle of an attack on the Commissioner of Pensions by Mr. Curtis, a Kansas Republican, who was succeeded by Mr. Lentz and Mr. Nor ton, of Ohio, and Mr. Robinson, of Indi ana. and other Northern Democrats. All inve’ghed against the lack of liberality in the administration of the pension laws. The Commissioner was ably defended by a score of members from both sides of the House. Mr. Mahon charged that the assault on him had been instigated by sharks of this city who were robbing the old soldiers. As a result of the latter’s disclosure a clause was put in the bill by unanimous consent empowering the Com missioner. in his discretion, to withhold the fees of attorneys of record in pension cases where he was satisfied that the at torneys had not prepared the cases under their personal supervision. The House was in session only forty minutes Monday and nothing of public importance was done except to refer to the Speaker for settlement a dispute be tween the appropriations and military af fairs committees over jurisdiction of the estimates for the appropriations for the manufacture of small arms at the Rock Island and Springfield arsenals. A few District of Columbia bills of minor im portance were passed. In the Senate, Monday, Mr. Pritchard, of North Carolina, delivered a long ad dress on the race question in the South, his remarks being addressed particularly against the proposed amendment to the Constitution of North Carolina, which, if enacted, he said, would disfranchise a large class of voters, both white and black. Mr. Pritchard was followed by Mr. Turner, cf Washington, in a speech on the Philippine question, in which he arraigned the administration’s policy as set out in the President’s message and in the speech of Mr. Beveridge. Mr. Turner was given close attention by his col leagues. Referring to the speech -of Mr. Beveridge as a rhapsody, Mr. Turner said: “It lacked the majestic harmony which can be evoked only when the no bler chords are struck.” He maintained that the Filipinos knew that the function of a government was to preserve life, lib erty and property, and believed that they were abundantly able to maintain such a government. The House, Tuesday, considered the Roberts case. Mr. Taylor, chairman of the special committee, led off in the de bate. He was followed by Mr. Littlefield, of Maine, successor of the late Nelson Dingley, in a two hours' speech in sup port of the minority report of the com mittee that Roberts be seated and then expelled if the House regards him as a fit subject for that drastic course. He In turn was followed by Mr. Roberts himself in a speech of an hour and a half in his own behalf. Mr. Roberts said he had been in public life for twenty years and was not driven to the defense of his moral character. He was not here repre senting the Mormon Church. He had received a greater number of votes from Gentiles than Mormons. “You can neith er exclude nor expel me,' said Mr. Rob erts. in conclusion. “I will cling so hard to the pillars of liberty that you shall not drag me down from them without bringing down the whole temple. (Ap plause and hisses.) t have lived with a good conscience until this day and am sensible of no act of shame on my part. You can brand me with shame and send me forth, but I shall leave with head erect and brow undaunted and walk the earth as angels walk the clouds. If you violate the Constitution all the shame will be with you.” There was a great out burst of applause in the galleries when Mr. Roberts concluded. Many of the ladies in the galleries were especially demonstrative. The Senate’s session. Tuesday, was de voted to speech-making. Mr. Turner, of Washington, concluded his address on the Philippine question. He was followed by Mr, Ross, of Vermont, witn a speech in which he-also discussed the Philippine question.. The text of his argument was a resolution introduced by him declaring that the provisions of the Constitution do not, unaided by act of Congress, extend over Puerto Rico and the Philippines; that the United States take sovereignty over Puerto Rico and the Philippines un restrained by the provisions of the Con stitution; and that the successful dis charge. of this duty demands the estab lishment of a separate department of the government to take charge of all outlying dependencies of the United States. Mr. McEnery, of Louisiana, delivered the con cluding speech of the session on the race question in the South. BRYAN EXPLAINS. Mor® Fully Defines His Views on Exten sion and Expansion. Kansas City, Mo., special: W. J. Bryan passed through Kansas City Saturday morning. Asked about his Minneapolis interview, in which he was reported as having expressed views favoring expan sion, Mr. Bryan said: “I have for one year been discussing imperialism, and I have tried to distin guish between such an extension of the nation’s limits as would not change the character of the government and an ex pansion which converts a homogeneous republic into a heterogeneous empire. When the annexation of any given terri tory is under consideration the question is, first, whether the people want to come in, and. second, whether the people are capable of sharing in the government and destiny of this nation. I believe there are people capable of governing themselves and that the Filipinos should be allowed to govern themselves, but I do not think they are sufficiently ad vanced to share with us in the govern ment of the nation. If the Philippine Isl ands are annexed the people there must be either citizens or subjects. I am not willing to admit them as citizens, and do not believe that a Republic can have sub jects, therefore, I want this nation to give them independence and then protect them from outside interference. Each proposed annexation must be considered on its own merits, but in considering these merits, the condition of the people should have more weight than geographical position or commercial advantage.” BAILEY WILL AID COLSON, Texan Offers Io Defend the Kentucky Col one! in His Coming Trial. Washington special: Representative Bailey, of Texas, leader of the Democrats in the House last Congress, has volun teered his services to Colonel Colson, a former Republican member of Congress from Kentucky and principal in the triple tragedy at Frankfort. He telegraphed his regrets to Colson and offered his services if needed at the same time. Colonel Col son replied, thanking him, saying he would probably avail himself of the of fer. Speaking of the matter, Bailey ex pressed his unqualified admiration of Col son’s manly qualities, and said: “He has only to strike the wire to obtain all the assistance I can render.” Kentuckians here talk of nothing else than this trag edy. Their sympathies are with Colson, who. they believe, was hounded Into the affair. They express admiration for what they call Bailey’s chivalric action in vol unteering his services to help Colson. PROBLEM FOR SOCIOLOG I- A Chicago University Professor Says He redity unit Not Whisky is Responsible for Kentucky Killings. t Chicago special: Dr. Francis W. Shep ardson, professor of history in the Uni versity of Chicago, believes that there is some sociological reason why Kentuck ians fight so much about politics and oth er matters. “They do not fight because of the bad effects of Kentucky whisky,” he declares, “for that is to be had in oth er places. There is nothing peculiar in the climate or soil which leads them to slay each other. In my opinion there is some inherent sociological reason for this and it is a great problem for sociologists to solve. I am Inclined to believe that the trait comes from the old Virginia blood and is a continuation of the old sys tems in vogue when Hamilton and his son were slain in duels.” Capt. English Declines Pay. Capt. William E. English, of Indian apolis. January 5, received from the Treasury Department a check for 31.172.25, due him for his services in the Spanish war. Captain English sent the check to Senator Fairbanks, with the request that he return it to the Department, and Sen ator Fairbanks handed it to Secretary Gage and told him Captain English did not care to accept any pay for his serv ices. Republican State Committee. The Republican State committee met at Indianapolis Wednesday to organize for the campaign. Charles S. Hernley, of New Castle, was re-elected chairman by acclamation. Other officers were elected as follows: Vice chairman, Joseph B. Kealing, of Indianapolis; secretary, War ren Bigler, of Wabash; treasurer, Harry W. Bennett, of Indianapolis. John Ruskin Dead.
