WHOLESALE EXPULSION.
<ll Britons Must Leave the Transvaal— Ke
cruits on French Steamer.
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.

56TH CONGRESS.
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

as follows: Vice chairman, Joseph B.
Kealing, of Indianapolis; secretary, War
ren Bigler, of Wabash; treasurer, Harry
W. Bennett, of Indianapolis.
