London, June 2. Not In years had the House of Commons been so throng ed with a brilliant and enthusiastic audience as when the first lord of the treasury and government leader In the House, A. J. Balfour, announced this afternoon the peace terms concluded with the Boers. Long before the customary prayer, the galleries of the House were packed. Joseph H. Choate, the United States ambassador; Henry White, the secre tary of the embassy; Lord Rothschild and many members of the cabinet pa tiently waited through the" answering of questions in the House, for the mo mentous announcement. An unusually large number of peers Bat in the gallery and behind the ladles grill aristocratic women were closely packed. Noticeable among them was Lady Sarah Wilson, who thus saw the end of the drama in which she played euch an active part. Mr. Chamberlain and Mr, Balfour both received great ovations as they walked to their seats, Mr. Chamber lain's ovation being by far the most en thusiastic of the two. The period of waiting finally came to an end. Amid breathless silence, broken a few seconds later by applause such as the House of Commons seldom hears, Blr. Balfour stood up and an nounced the terms on which the war in South Africa had been ended. These terms he read as follows: "His Excellency, Lord Milner, In be half of the British government; His Ex cellency Mr. Steyn, General Bremner, General C. R. De Wet, and Judge Hert zog, acting in behalf of the Orange Free State, and General Schalk-Burger, Gen eral Rcitz, General Louis Botha, and General Delarey, acting in behalf of their respective burghers, desiring to terminate the present hostilities, agree to the following terms: "The burgher forces in the field will forthwith lay down their arms and hand over all their guns, rifles, and am munition of war in their possession, or under their control, and desist from further resistance, and acknowledge King Edward VII. as their lawful sov ereign. The manner and details of this surrender will be arranged between Lord Kitchener and Comamndant Gen eral Botha, assisted by General Delarey and Chief Commandant De Wet. "(2.) All prisoners are to be brought back so soon as possible to South Africa, without loss of liberty or prop erty, as soon as transport can be pro vided and means of subsistence as sured. "(3.) The burghers so returning will not be deprived of their personal liber ty or property. "(4.) No proceeding, civil or criminal, will be taken against any burghers surrendering or so returning, for any acts in connection with the prosecution of the war. The benefits of this clause do not extend to certain acts contrary to the usages of war, which had been notified by the commander-in-chief to the Boer generals, and which shall be tried by court martial after the close of hostilities. "(5.) The Dutch language will be taught in the public schools of the Transvaal and Orange River Colony, where the parents desire it, and will be allowed in the courts of law, for the better and more effectual administra tion of justice. "(6.) Possession of rifles will be al lowed in the Transvaal and Orange River Colony to persons requiring them for their protection, on taking out a li cense, according to laws. "(7.) The military administration of the Transvaal and Orange River Colony will, at the earliest possible date, be succeeded by a civil government, and, so soon as circumstances -permit, rep resentative institutions, leading up to self-government will be introduced. "(8) The question of granting the franchise to natives will not be decided until after the introduction of self-government. "(9) No special tax will be imposed on landed property in the Transvaal or orange Kivcr colony to defrny the or penses of the war. "The sum of 3,000,000 sterling is to be provided for restocking the Boers' fa rms. "Rebels are liable to trial according to the law of the colony to which they belong. The rank and file will be dis franchised for life. The death penalty will not be inflicted." After he had concluded reading the peace agreement Mr. Balfour proceed ed: "There are certain important points not dealt with in the document I have just read and which was signed on Sat urday night. Therefore, it may be con- COLUMBIA TRUSTEES MEET. Prof. Illrlli, of Munich, Appointed to New Chair of Chinese. New York, June 2.

The order of the United Mine Workers of America calling out on strike all engineers, fire men and pumpmen employed afcollier ies where the eight-hour work day with, present wages was not granted went into effect to-day, and, as has been pre dicted, a majority of the men obeyed the order. Neither side can claim a victory at this time, because the strug gle on this phase of the anthracite coal miners' strike has just opened. Thera was only a partial showing of strength to-day. The real test of whether or not the mine pumps shall be manned will begin to-morrow. Although a majority of the men quit work, the companies, generally speaking, succeeded in keep ing their pumps in operation. The op erators feel that at present they have the advantage, but they are not so san guine of the future. The exact number of men who quit to-day cannot be ob tained. Each side refuses to make pub' lie their figures, but they gave out in formation that roughly estimates the number of men affected. These esti mates are far apart. National President Mitchell, of the Miners' union, gave out a statement in which he says: "Reports received from every import ant mining community Indicate that where the eight-hour day has not been conceded fully 80 per cent, of the fire men, numpmen and engineers have ceased work. The number will be ma terially increased to-morrow. In some sections mine foremen have positively declined to perform the work. of engi neers, firemen and pumpmen. In some places foremen have manned the pumps and clerks have also been required to perform this labor. "A perfect army of irresponsible men has been employed by the coal compa nies to act as coal and iron policemen. The services of these men are unneces sary and their presence unwarranted. There have been no violations of law to-day by the mine owners, and I am sanguine there will be no overt acts on the part of the strikers." On the other hand, a mining official of one of the largest coal companies. who received accurate information front the entire coal belt, makes this state ment: "President Mitchell's estimate is too high. We have received figures from all our collieries and the general super intendents of all other coal companies, but they are not to be given out, as It would not be policy to reveal our weak spots or to betray our strongholds as far as they relate to the collieries indi vidually. I can, however, say that about 65 per cent, of all the Lehigh Valley men, who are scattered from near Scranton down to Shamokin, went out. The Delaware, Lackawanna and West ern, the Delaware and Hudson and the Erie companies, whose operations are mostly located north of here, fared a little better. The Susquehanna Coal company's collieries, which are con trolled by the Pennsylvania railroad, and which are located at Nanticoke, south of here, were cripplels less than any big company In the region. The Reading company, with forty collieries in the lower region, was the worst suf ferer, more than 70 per cent, of Us men refusing to go to work. The individual (Continued on Sixth Page.) RELIEVED TO J!E SMALLPOX. Three Suspicions Cases Dlscuvcred lu the Town of Manchester. Manchester, June 2. Three cases, which are believed to be smallpox, were discovered in this town to-day. The victims are Frank Abbey and his ter Gertrude, and Mrs. Ernest Rush. The victims live in a tenement house at the corner of Charter Oak and Spruce streets. The cases were discovered in a peculiar manner. Miss Abbey has been treated by a local physician for chicken-pox. Her physician left town yesterday and to-day when Mr. Abbey was confined to his house another phy sician was called. He examined both patients, and later saw Mrs. Rush. He said the cases were undoubtedly small pox. The health authorities have es tablished a strict quarantine, and the three patients will be removed to the pest house as soon as possible.

Had Never Been Considered So Before- Seen to Erupt and Throw Out Stoues and Mud Country for Miles Around Affected Earth Shook Before the Ex plosion. Seattle, Wash., June. 2. Word has been received here that an eruption of Mount Blackburn, in southwestern Alaska occurred on April 11. A special to the Times from Skagway under date of May 28, says: Accounts of a most thrilling nature regarding the volcanic action of a supposed harmless mountain in Alaska were brought to this city by J. C. McFarland this af ternoon. Seven weeks ago a slight earthquake shock was felt in all parts of Alaska and until to-day the phenom enon remains unexplained. , Mr. McFarland, who Is a geologist, happened to be within a few miles of Mount Blackburn. The story is best told in Mr. McFarland's own words: "On April 11, about 7:30 in the morning, I was just packing my cooking uten slls when the air about me suddenly be came oppressive with a distinct and un common silence. In my wanderings through different wilds I had become used to many strange freaks of nature, but this one appalled me.

Instantly It seem ed as if the peak had opened; a cloud of ashes and smoke shot out into the air several hundred feet and then there seemed to flow from the opening in the top a stream of dirty stuff with large and small boulders. This continued for only about ten minutes, then ceased as suddenly as It had begun, and the air cleared. "It was three days after many peril ous attempts before I succeeded in reaching the base of the mountain. Then I discovered that the country for miles around had been affected. The small undergrowth of the trees had been entirely covered up. The stuff which poured from the top of the moun tain was not even warm, but seemed to consist purely of dust, rocks and other thing substances.

Riot and bloodshed marked the progress of the teamsters' strike to-day. There were numerous fights between the police and the strik ers and their sympathizers. Street car traffic was stopped while the fighting went on, the police and employes of the packing companies were stoned and at one place when surrounded by a dence crowd of men and women the police, fifty strong; under the command of Lieutenant Collins, maddened by the nuiiiuiouri sialic? w:i.'i -hf-h iney nn been pelted, drew their revolvers and charged full Into the crowd, which showed no disposition to retreat. Fists, stones and clubs were brought Into requisition by the strikers and the police used their batons and the butt ends of revolvers freely. When this fight was over there were a number of strikers needing surgical attendance. None were dangerously injured as far as known, however, and the wounded strikers were carried off by their friends. The fight ing began on the westside shortly after noon and in different parts of the city continued practically all of the afternoon. IIoTcy and Professor Jngger Ascend the Mountain. St. Vincent, B. W. I., Sunday, June L The fine weather that prevailed yes terday afforded an opportunityivh?!',! was seized by scientists from the Unit ed States now here, to make an ascent of the Soufriere volcano. The party consisted of Professor Jagger, the geol ogist, of Harvard; Dr. Hovey, assistant curator of the Museum of Natural His tory in New York, and Mr. Curtis. They were accompanied by a local planter, McGregor MacDonald. The ex plorers succeeded in reaching the sum mlt of the Soufriere from the western side. The ascent was exceedingly dif ficult, owing to the mud that covered the mountain side, but the ground was cool. After a tiresome scramble up the slip pery hill the rim of the old crater was reached at about midday. There was no trace whatever of vegetation, but there had been no change In the topo graphical outlines of the mountain on that side, and the old crater retained its tragic beauty. The great mass of water that formerly lay serenely about 5fi0 feet below the rim of the crater has disappeared and the crater appeared to be a dreadful chasm over two thousand feet deep. With the aid of the glass water was made out at the bottom of this abyss. The party did. not venture across the summit of the Soufriere to inspect the new crater which was then emitting a little vapor, for the ground in that di rection looked dangerous. Apparently the ridge of the mountain called "The Saddle" was Intact, al though the old crater seemed of larger circumference than before the recent eruption. 'At the western base of the Soufriere a subsidence of a depth of one thousand feet, has occurred for an area of a square mile. The lava beds on the eastern side of the Soufriere continue to emit steam, despite the protracted and heavy rain fall that has occurred. The eruption, the American scientists say, was obviously mora violent on the eastern side of the mountain, where the new crater Is located, than on the west ern side. The Windward district of the Island is desolated and the Inhabitants, who are afraid to return to their homes, are crowding the city. Mont Telee Still Paris, June 2. An Emoting. official dispatch from Fort de France, Martinique, dated Sunday, says it is useless to send fur ther provisions. There are sufficient the island. The situation is unchang ed. Mont Pelee continues Its eruption and Is emitting cinders. Four Convicts Pardoned. Hartford, June 2. The state board of pardons, at Its session to-day. pardoned four prisoners, and extended the limit of the parole to Thomas Norman. The prisoners pardned were Frank V. Conant, a life prisoner from Norwich, in 1594; Thomas F. Shay of New Haven county; Charles A. Wilson of Hartford county, and Lyman G. Wilson, Fair field county. George Wallace Elected President aud James B. Martin Assistant City Clerk Petition for Flagman at, Ninth Ward Railroad Crossings Sargent & . Will Bridge Wallace Street. The new board 0! aldermen met and organized last night, the flrat ses-jion of the new board lasting only about an hour. When the session was called to order bv City Clerk Norris at S:30 all the members were present except Alder man Foote of the Fourteenth ward. Al derman Beecher of the Seventh ward, who has been for some time laid up with rheumatism, and who has there fore been obliged to be absent from several meetings, was again present last evening, and wan cordially greeted by his colleagues and congratulated on his convalescence. Mr. Beecher is one of the hold-over aldermen and is one of the most experienced members' of the board, having served the city several terms. ( Alderman Conway of the Twelfth, as soon as the meeting was called to order, moved that Mayor Studley be invited to act as temporary chairman pending the election of a president of the board This motion was carried, and Aldei-men Wallace and Hosley were appointed a committee to wait on the mayor. Mayor Studley in assuming the tern porary chairmanship made a brief ad dress in the course of which he referred to the fact of the single board In the city's legislative being, a new state of affairs and said that it had been thought best by some people to make a change from the custom from time im memorial of having two boards. This was perhaps a matter of experiment. Many believed that a smaller body was better and to many it seemed that a larger body was the more representa tive of the people, but this did neces sarliy follow. He said that one trouble which the board would find would be that It started not at the beginning, but In the middle of a fiscal year. This was not thought of in the making up of the new charter, and perhaps before the year was ended the new board would conclude that It was better that the system should be changed and the new board should come into office at the beginning of the fiscal year. Speaking of the fact that much fault is found concerning pavements, lights, etc., he said that the fact should be taken into consideration that New Ha ven Is greatly spread out and requires as many lights and pavements as a city of a million inhabitants. Certificate of election of the new members was then read and the oath of office was administered to the new members by Mayor Studley. The new aldermen who were elected on Aaril 15 last, and who took olHca last night are: Aldermen-at-large Cornelius H. Con way, John J. Sprlghtley, Edward G. Frederick, William Trueman, S.

The house ton day by a vote of 129 to 46 suspended thd rules and adopted the joint resolution; extending the thanks of congress to Secretary of State Hay for his addresa on the occasion of the McKinley memo rial exercises last February. Unani mous consent for the consideration of this resolution was objected to by Mr DeArmond of Missouri some time ago, and to-day Mr. Clark of Missouri mada a twenty minutes speech irl opposition, to its adoption on the ground that Mr. Hay had abused the occasion by Inject--Ing "a republican stump speech" into the address. General Hooker of Mis sissippi, a one-armed Confederate vet eran, delivered an eloquent defense of Mr. Hay's address, denying that it con tained anything that was objectionable from a political standpoint. Mr. Gros- venor, who was In charge of the resolu tion, argued that Mr. Hay in eulogizing the martyred president, could not di vorce the man from his achievements. Only 46 democrats voted with Mr. Clark against the resolution. Special orders were adopted for the consideration of the anti-anarchy bill and the bill to transfer certain forest leaei vea to the agricultural department. The senate bill to retire Surgeon Gen eral Sternberg and the house bill to en courage salmon culture in Alaska were defeated on motions to pass them uni der suspension of the rules.
