structed, Trolley Wires Out and Free
Fights Between Guards and Crowds
Norfolk, Va., March 5.A mob of
500 strike sympathizers thronged the
streets of NorfolK on which the main
line of the Norfolk Railway and Light
company's cars are run and the police
were unable to cope with it until the
cars, which were guarded by detach
ments of military and nad run with
difficulty during the day, were housed
in the barns. In the locality where
the barns are the military was in con
trol. Cars were repeatedly derailed,
wagon loads of stones were piled on
the tracks and free fights between the
military guards and the crowds oc
curred during the day at frequent in
tervals. In one difficulty a sergeant
ran a bayonet into the arm of H. H.
Harmansof, a barber. Mrs. Harmansof,
who was standing by her husband at
the time, knocked the sergeant to the
ground with both lists and discolored
the face of Lieutenant Gale, who was
near. Several soldiers were struck
by missiles thrown through the win
dows of the cars. A number of ar
rests have been made, both by the po
lice and military.
A conference was held by Mayor
Beaman, Police Chief Veltines and
Colonel Higgins, commanding the Sev
enty-first Virginia regiment, eight
companies of which are now in serv
ice, relative to placing the city under
martial law. The police force of 100
men has been on duty for 48 hours
and is unable to meet the emergency.
Martial law will be declared in Nor
folk in the morning. Four more in
fantry companies from Emporia, Suf
folk, Smithfield and Franklin, making
the entire Seventy-first regiment, have
been ordered out.

ley wire in the city. The troops are
now guarding the power plant. A de

of the Chicago-Kansas City, Chicago

Onslaught of tne Boers Was Delivered
With Unusual Impetus!.
London, March 5.Telegrams re
ceived here from Klerksdorp describ
ing the attack upon and capture by
the^oers Feb. 24 at a point southwest
of Kleiksdorp of 467 British soldiers
who were acting as convoy to an
empty wagon train show that General
Delarey laid his plans with consum
mate care and precise knowledge of
the ground.
The third Boer attack upon the con
voy was delivered from various points
and was most determined. By sheer
recklessness they sought to ride down
and overwhelm the British defense.
The British guns shelled the charging
Boers, but nothing stopped their on
slaught, which was delivered with un
usual impetus. The convoy mules
were subjected to a heavy fire, and,
deserted by tne native drivers, the
mules stampeded, putting many of
the defenders temporarily out of ac
tion and causiitg the wildest confu
sion. For two hours the British held
out. They then divided and were
overwhelmed. few minutes of cau
tious fighting and all was over. The
Boers galloped along the line firing
at every man who showed the slight
est tendency to resist until they
reached and captured the guns. In
the excitement the Northumberland
fusileers, who had been cut off, suc
ceeded in fighting their way out for
some distance. When their ammuni
tion became exhausted they charged
with bayonets, but were speedily over
By 7 o'clock in the morning all re
sistance was at an end. The dead and
wounded were scattered all over the
field. Broken wagons and panic
stricken horses and mules made a
scene of indescribable confusion. Not
until General Delarey came in person
was anything like order restored. He
stopped the Boers engaged in strip
ping the British wounded by the free
use of the sjambok, but they contin
ued the work of despoiling directly
his back was turned.
Mr. Broderick Asks for Nearly Sev
enty Million Pounds.
London, March 5.In introducing
the army estimates, 69,310,000, in
the house of commons, the war secre
tary, Mr. Broderick, entered into a
long defense of the war office, which,
he contended, had done its work well,
considering that a war has never be
fore been waged on such a scale as
the South African war. The war of
fice was feeding aOO.OOO men and 243,-
000 horses in South Africa and there
were no complaints on that score. In
regard to recruiting, Mr. Broderick be
lieved the limit had been reached. No
reduction in the strength of the army
could be expected and probably the
Indian garrison must be increased.
The country had already had enough
experience of allowing the colonial
garrisons to sink below their proper
limits. In regard to the much dis
cussed question of volunteers, Mr.
Broderick declared that if the volun
teers were to be a bar to conscription
they must make themselves efficient.
It was proposed to establish a volun
teer reserve of men over 40 years of
age, who were unable to comply with
the ordinary regulations, ,and estab
lish during the present year a militia
reserve of 50,000 men.
Prince Henry Receives an Address
From Minnesota Germans.

an address from the Central bund of
St. Paul, placed a wreath on the Lin
coln monument in Lincoln park and
enjoyed a luncheon and reception at

panying him in his public parlor, after

the expressions of good wishes that

Ireland and the wrongs of the Boers
were kindred subjects at a meeting of
the Irish nationalists held in this city.
The meeting was primarily held to pay

The thousands of German resident
in Milwaukee joined heartily in the
welcome of the young prince, to whose
house they once owed allegiance, and,
veterans of the German wars gath
ered from throughout the state to as
sist in the reception.
The special train bearing the prince
and his party ran up from Chicago
over the Chicago, Milwaukee and St.
Paul railroad and there was an enor
mous crowd at the depot awaiting its
coming. There was a cheer when the
prince appeared and another, louder
than the first,* when he reached his
carriage outside the depot grounds.
Mayor Rose and Admiral Evans en
tered his carriage, and, flanked by po
lice and guarded by troopers of the
First Wisconsin cavalry, the drive
through the city began. Just outside
of the depot were 1,000
Veterans of the German Wars.
They had come here from many dis
tant points in the state, and they gave
the prince a volley of cheers as he
passed them. The business streets
were blockaded with people and the
police had to fight to keep a drive
way clear.
The reception of the prince as he
drove through the streets was wildly
enthusiastic, and there was an ovation
when he entered the Exposition build
ing for, the public reception. Asjie
appeared on t-ie stage, escorted by nis
staff and the reception committee.ffthe
mass chorus of 600 voices sang "pes
Deutsch Lied."
There were 10,000 persons packed in
the Exposition building and it was
some time before they were sufficienf
ly stilled for the exercises to begin.
Speeches of welcome were made \by
Mayor Rose in behalf of the city, For
mer Congressman Deuster in behalf
of the German residents, Governor
Lafollette in behalf of the state and
Captain Court. The great chorus sang
again and as the prince arose to leave
the hall the crowd broke into cheers.
He touched his cap in salute and
smiled as he turned to leave the stage.
The fire run iollowed the public re
ception and it made a spectacle that
was both novel and exciting. Thirty
two pieces of apparatus, marshalled
by Fire Chief Foley, were raced for a
mile at high speed.* They ran two
abreast and 200 feet apart. Darkness
had come and the engine lights made
the picture all the more inspiring.
The prince was then driven
Through Illuminated Streets
to the Hotel Pfister, where the banquet
was served. The illumination was
very pretty, hundreds of strings of
electric lights were arched across
Grand avenue and Wisconsin street,
hundreds of buildings were outlined
in light and high up on the tower of
the city hall printed in incandescent
lights were the words, "Welcome to
H. R. H., Prince Henry." Especially
pretty was the lighting of the Court
of Honor on Grand avenue. There was
a great display of bunting and under
the glare of the lights it looked even
more attractive than in the daylight.
The dinner at the Pfister lasted
about two hours. The decorations of
the banquet hall were very elaborate.
The principal table at which the prince
sat was literally covered with Ala
bama smilax, arching gracefully over
the place where Prince Henry sat, and
hung at the ends with roses and car
nations. A feature of the banquet
decorations was a miniature in flowers
of the German yacht Hohenzollern,
which was suspended from the center
of the hall. Three toasts were pro
posed, those of the president of the
United States and the emperor of Ger
many being drunk while the orchestra
played national airs of the respective
countries. These were followed by
the toast, "Prince Henry ot Prussia,"
to which the prince responded.
At the conclusion of Prince Henry's
remarks Mayor Rose presented to his
highness an elegantly bound album
containing photographs of Milwaukee's
public buildings and some of the beau
tiful residences of the city.
Prince Henry left Milwaukee for
the East at 10 o'clock on a special
train. A large crowd greeted him as
Jie took his farewell.

Milwaukee, March 5.Milwaukee
was host to Prince Henry of Prussia,
for six hours and gave him a reception"
that was highly enthusiastic and enter
tainment that was unique. His spe
cial train came at 4 o'clock and at 10
was away again on the long run to
Niagara and New England. The inter
vening time was all given over to the
reception and entertainment of the
royal visitor. It began with a drive
through business and residential dis
tricts in review before a crowd that
numbered 200,000. Then there was a
public reception at which Governor
Robert Lafollette and Mayor David S.
Rose voiced the official welcomes, and
the united singing societies raised
their voices in mighty chorus. There
was also a splendid illumination and a
thrilling night run of the Milwaukee
fire department. Later there was a
banquet at which the prince met the
leading citizens of the city and state.

spent another day in discussion of the
bill to classify the rural free delivery
service and place tne carriers under

reached, as the list of speakers is still
large. The fate of the bill is in doubt,

that it Will be defeated. Before de
bate began the conference report on
the Philippine tariff Dili was adopted.
The vote was on party lines, except
that Messrs. McCall (Mass.), Little
field (Me.) and Heatwole (Minn.)
voted with the Democrats against

on the Measure.
Washington, March 5.The ship
subsidy bill was further discussed in
the senate by Mr. Frye. His remarks
were directed principally to the Re
publican senators and he gave further
expression to his views that the sub

lican party and that in its preparation

measure. No other senators desiring

from the Orient. In Kan Su. Fathers
Van Mirhaeghe and Bougaerts were
murdered by a band of Chinese, in
cluding soldiers, who attacked their
mission. The first named priest was
killed instantly by a sword thrust, but
the latter lingered for five days, suf
fering from terrible wounds. It is
stated that the attack was made in re
venge for the deposition of the son of
Prince Tuan by the empress dowager

ters. The magistrate of the district,

The Platte River at Louisville, Neb.j
Is Two Miles Wide.
Louisville, Neb., March 5.An ice
gorge which began forming above the
Missouri Pacific bridge near this city
Monday morning has reached formid
able proportions and the Platte river
has risen higher than for 20 years and
now covers a stretch of country two
miles wide. The tracks of the Chi
cago, Rock Island and Pacific railroad
are washed out for half a mile and
trains will be unable to pass for sev
eral days. All trains on the road will
be run by another line until the wash
out can be repaired.
The tracks of the Missouri Pacific
road began to wash out slowly and it
is feared they will be in bad condition
by mornipg. No trains can run over
the threatened portion of the track.
The Missouri Pacific bridge across the
Platte river has been considerably
damaged, but is still in condition for
use. The wagon bridge will probably
have to be abandoned for several days.
East and west of the city the Burling
ton tracks are washed out in small
patches and it is feared they will be
impassable before the night is over.
Twenty families living in the low
lands have been compelled to abandon

Unrest In Southern Europe.
While something approaching indus
trial peace quite generally prevails in
3his country, there are demonstrations
of unrest and dissatisfaction in cer
tain quarters of Europe of more than
usually serious and menacing charac
ter. Notable examples are the recent
riots at Triest and Barcelona. The
Austrian troubles, it is asserted, are
clearly traceable to anarchistic agita
tion, while the Spanish crisis arises
from the dissatisfaction of laborers
with their wages and conditions.
The situation at Barcelona culminat
ed in a general strike, involving some
80,000 workmen of various classes and
trades, resulting in the placing of the
city under martial law. There was for
a time an almost complete stoppage of
business and traffic in this most im
portant commercial and industrial city
of Spain, with consequent widespread
distress and the loss of many lives and
the destruction of much property. The
situation was only relieved by the
adoption of drastic measures by the
government, which leave ugly wounds
and seemingly intensify the bitterness
existing between the ruling and em
ploying classes and the laboring
masses, though the latter are for the
time overawed and calmed.
In Austria the anarchistic outbreak
is regarded as of the utmost serious
ness, and there is a possibility that the
ramifications of the movement spread
farther than appears on the surface.
In connection with other elements of
dissatisfaction and disintegration, the
effects of this outbreak at Triest may
be exceedingly troublesome to the
Austro-Hungarian government and the
house of Hapsburg, which, with the
dynastic scandals and the racial
schisms that have agitated covrt, par
liament and subjects for some years,
has at best none too strong a hold
upon the fealty of the people.
The State apportionment of the cur
rent school fund has been completed.
