Sturdy Old Boer Tatriot Still
Cherishes Lively Hatred of
Everything British.
Announces That He Will Stay in
Holland, Which Offered Him a
Refuge in Dark Hour of
His Distress.
Erussels, July 5. Alone of all this Trans
vaal and Orange Free State chieftains who
led the Boers In their tight for freedom, the
venerable "Oom" Paul refuses to accept the
peace terms of the British and return to
South Africa.
Coupled with the announcement that Gen
eral Botha would go to Holland to explain
the terms of surrender to Boer refugees and
officials cime a report that Mr. Kruger had
finally been brought to acquiesce In British
supremacy and wouid return to Pretoria to
spend hU remaining das In tha-land whose
destinies he once controlled.
It was even said that Queen Wllhelmlna,
had placed at his Jlspasal a Dutch steam
er and had arranged that he should return
in n manner worthy of his former rank.
But tho ex-President has been prompt to
deny the rumor. In these terms he briefly
defines his plans:
"I shall never return to tho Transvaal.
In that country I have nothing. All that
nisde It home to me has passed forever.
Here In Holland, where I found refuge In
my hour of need, I purpose remaining for
the rest of my life. I shall never leave IL"
The stanch old Dutch patriot, deprived
in his very last days of all his hopes. Is
the one really patheUc figure of the war.
The other leaders are all younger men.
for most of the old comrades of Kruger
have died since the struggle began.
The cheerful spirit in which they have
accepted the terms of the conquerors shows
that they are not devoid of hope for the
future, and can even look forward to being
ccntented citizens under English control.
With Kruger the case Is different. Ha
staked his whole future In the war. He has
lost, and instead of being lessened, hU
hatred of England has increased. That he
could live content In Pretoria Is out of the
question; that he wUl live long anywhere.

Wllkesbarre. Px, July 5. The movement
of empty coal cars along the railroads and
the unusual activity about several of tha
collieries In tha region indicate to the strik
ers that an effort Is to bo made In a few
days to start work at some of the collieries.
The operators assert that they have euffl
elent mn under engagement, both re
turned strikers and Imported men, to man
several of the collieries.
While they will not admit that work may
be resumed next week, there U a general
belief that the effort will bo made.
In the Hazleton region the Pardees aro
espected to mass men at the Harwood col
liery, which, being on the outskirts of the
region. Is In less danger of attack than a
mine In the heart of the district, and the
coal can be shipped from it without being
sent past any mining village. Many min
ers aro said to have applied for work In
response to the notice of the company that
It was to receive applications.
In the Wyoming region all indications
point to a resumption of work at the Nan
ticoke No. E colliery of the Susquehanna
Coal Company. The mine Is situated at
th edge of tha Wyoming Basin and Its
output goes over the Pennsylvania Rail
road. It Is also stated that from the Wyoming
division mines of the Delaware. Lacka
wanna and Western Company one colliery
wUl be selected at which work Is to be
started. The oSicials say enough miners of
the division have asked for work to man a
colliery. Some empty coal cars were to-day
placed on sidings near a couple of these
collieries and there Is a bustle about tha
workings which Indicates that somo move
Is about to be made.
The Delaware and Hudson and the Le
high Valley companies arc also busy with
the preparations which make It appear as
