WASHINGTON, April 25 -During the debate in the Quay case, Mr. McCum ber (N. D.) delivered a carefully pre pared constitutional argument in oppo sition to the seating of Mr. Quay.

MILWAUKEE, April 25.-Politicians and delegates from all over the state are flocking to town to attend the Re publican state convention, which meets at the Davidson theatre at noon. The principal business before the con vention will be the selection of four del egates at large to the national Republi can convention at Philadelphia. Chair man Joseph B.Treat of the state central committee, has ordered the selection of James G. Monaghan, United States marshal of the Western district, as temporary chairman of the convention, and on this occasion will be sounded the Wisconsin keynote of the Republican campaign with relation to national poli tics. That the administration of Presi dent McKinley will be endorsed there seems not the slightest doubt. Every thing points to a very harmonious gath ering. There will be 1,007 delegates in the convention. According to the pro. gramme everything points to the selec tion of these delegates: Isaac Stephqn son of Marinette, Joseph B. Treat of Monroe, James S. Stout of Menominie, and H. August Leudtke of Milwaukee. There seems to be no doubt that the delegates at large and a majority if not all the delegates to be elected in the various congressional districts will favor the retention of Henry C. Payne as Wisconsin's member of the national Republican committee. Congressional Nominations.

The General Sltutlaon. PRETORIA, Monday, April 28.-An official bulletin issued here says: "The federals continue their fighting at Wepener, and have captured some of General Brabant's cattle and horses. "General Dewet's losses at Dewets dorp were one man killed and six men wounded. Twenty British were cap tured, besides the killed and wounded. The British appear to be retiring beyond Dewetsdorp. "Cronje reports that with a strong commando he attacked the British northeast of Boshof. A heavy engage mont followed and the English were driven from kopje to kopje. The fed erals displayed great courage and reso lution and spiritedly chased the enemy in the direction of Boshlof. Only two burghers were wounded. The Pritisli lost 15 men killed and left 3 ,vouinded and 8 prisoners in the hands of the burghers. " The Cronje referred to is undoubtedly a son of the famous Boor general " now at St. Helena. SITUATION SlIMIAllR IZED). Interesting T)Deelopments MUst. Soon lie sult From I'reient Conditions. LONnox, April 25.-All attention is centered on the interesting though com plicated situation in the Southeastern portion of the Orange Free State, from which developments of the utmost im portance must ensue in the near future. General Rundle, it would seem, has found the Boers confronting him at Dewetsdorp in stronger force than he cares to engage, and so he is marking time pending the arrival of support. While General Rundlo is preparing to strike Dewetsdorp, Generals Brabanut and Hart are pushing along the frontier of Basutoland, where they will be able to frustrate any attack on General Run dle's right, and Generals French and Pole-Carew are hastening from Bloom fontein to bar the Boer line of retreat northwards. In the meanwhile the burgher forces occupying Thab N'Chu are in a position to fight a delaying action, giving the Boer forces at Dewetsdorp and Wepener time to retire in case of defeat, and it seems as though General French must dispose of this Thaba N 'Chn force be fore lie can reach the rear of the Boer forces opposing Ge(nerals Rundle and Brabant, otherwise his flank will be open to assault. Nteed Another Paardeberg. The Bloers driven out of Lecuw Kop will probably rally at Thaba N'Chu, where a stiff fight may be expected. Should the British fail in this attempt to bring about another Paardeberg, it must inmmensely affect the larger issues of the war, as it will undoubtedly lead to a persistent repetition of the guerilla tactics which have been largely respon sible for the penning up of Lord Rob erts at Bloemfontein for so many weeks. During the course of General Alder son's advance on Leeuw Kop, the Can adians found themselves in a tight cor ner Sunday near Donkerpoort. The Canadian mounted infantry sent to rec onnoiter the Boer position, approached within 300 yards of a farm flying the hospital flag, under cover of which the Boers opened such a hot fire on the Can adians that they were unable to at tempt to retire until another force of Canadians covered their retreat by threatening the rear of the Boer posi. tion.

LORNE DUKE OF ARGYLE. Queen's Son-in-Law liii units the Title of Hlis FTather. LOxnox, April 25.-The succession of the Marquis of Lorne to the dukedom of Argyle, owing to the death of his father, creates a vacancy in the house of commons for South Manchester, which the marquis represented. It is understood that had the seat been safer for the Unionists, a vacancy would have beeon created somel time ago by the queen making Ih r son-in-law a peer. Now the Ulionists are forced to recon test the conistitneuncy, which only gave the Marquis of Lornie a majonrity of 7R at the last elhetii)n. It is presumed that the Princess I.ouise, daughter of Queen Victoria, and wife of the Mar quis Lorne, will herefafter assumle the title of Dnuchess of Argyll. NO SERIO(US IOSSES YET.

Considerable trouble was reported on the long distance telephone service between Duluth, St. Paul and Ashland on account of a few poles burn ing and wires down. The situation is chiefly serious from its possibilities as conditions are similar to the summer of 1894, the year of the disastrous fires that devastated many towns and resulted in scores of fatali ties. Unless rains come soon a repeti tion of that disaster is feared. Conference on the Itawalian Bill.
