A Rumor of Jamieson's Execu tion. British Trooos Ordered to Repel at Arms Any Further Armed Advances. LONDON, Jan. 3. Cable advices from south Africa are contradictory and yet all are alarming. It appears, however, that Jamieson, leader of the British South Africa company's force, has been tried at Jo hannesburg by a drumhead court mar tial and a dispatch to The Standard states that he has been already shot, dn accordance with the decree of the summary court. , Almost all of the expeditionary force have been released, anly a num ber of the more prominent officers be . ing retained in custody by the Boers. The spoil in the way of rifles and am munition and camp supplies was im mense. The cablegram relative to Dr. Jamieson's execution is not believed here. It is not believed it would have been permitted at Johannesburg, where the main population, outside of Kaffirs, is composed of Englishmen. Residents of the Transvaal now in London are especially sure that such could not' have been the case. Dr. Herse, editor of the iSouth Africa Critic, says: "If Johannesburg is the same town I knew the city has risen and either succeeded or failed dn an at tempt to liberate Dr. Jamieson. I am satisfied all foreigners there, including Americans, would help the English. There are practically no Boers ait Jo hannesburg except the armed burghers who are parading the streets." The government is extremely per turbed by the turn events have taken. On learning 'that a second column of the troops of the British South Africa company had started for the Trans vaal, it has been ordered that the Black Watch of Highlanders, now posted at Cape Town, shall start at once for the border line and stop by force, if necessary, the contemplated raid.

A Resolution for a Convention to Define the Northern Bound ary Line. WASHINGTON, Jan. 3. The senate heard a stirring debate today, the bond question being the theme. Senator Sherman's 6peech, which had been an ticipated with much intereat for some time, initiated the financial discus sion. This, however, was merely a prelude to a financial controversy, vig orous and personal in character. Senator Elkins of West Virginia sought to secure an immediate volte on his-resolution directing that all bond issues be advertised and the bonds of fered to the public. Senator Hill attempted to have the resolution referred to a committee, but on roll call the vote was over whelmingly in favor of proceeding with the question. Only six negatives were cast, Senators Chilton, Caffery, Hill, Mitchell of Wisconsin, Murphy and Brice. Senator Hill spoke vigorously against the resolution. He asserted that Senator Sherman, when secretary of the treasury, had made bond con tacts with a New York syndicate similar to the one now assailed. This brought on a sharp personal debate, In wbaoh Senators Hill, Sherman, Hoar, Teller and others participated. Senator Morrill, Republican of Ver mont, chairman of the finance commit tee, moved that when the senate ad journed it be until Tuesday next, and said: "I hope that by Tuesday, whan the senate reassembles, the finance committee will be ready ..to report; on both the tariff and bond bills passed by the house." The motion of ad journment until Tuesday was agreed to. Senator Hale of Maine presented a bill for a Pacific coast cable to Hono lulu and elsewhere. He explained that it was an elaboration of the plan urged before the last congress and contemplated a cable for the transac tion of the business of the United States government. He said he would call up the subject next Tuesday. A joint resolution for a constitu tional amendment admitting women to suffrage was presented by request by Senator Hoar. Senator Squier, Republican of Wash ington, offered a resolution for the ne gotiation forthwith of a convention between the United States and Great Britain for marking the boundary be tween Alaska and British North Amer ica and appropriating $75,000 for ex penses. Senator Squier said this boun dary question involved consideration quite as serious as that concerning Venezuela. There were prospects of a conflict between the miners and the officers claiming to exercise authority along the disputed line. The resolu tion is confined to the controversy over the forty-first meridian and not to the general boundary question. Senator George of Mississippi askad immediate consideration for the bill repealing the law requiring the oath of loyalty as a pre-requisite to securing a pension for service during the Mex ican war. The bill was passed without a division. Senator Butler of North Carolina asked immediate consideration of the bill Pio prohibit the issue of interest bearing bonds. . Senator Hill of New York suggested that the bill be not passed for the pres ent. 'Senator Sherman, he said, was about to address the senate. The senate agreed to the resoiuttion by Senator Allen of Nebraska, calling on the secretary of the treasury for detailed information as to the segre gation of funds in the treasury and their use for purposes oi.lb.er than for redemption, with dates and circum stances of such use. Senator Perkins of California urged the passage of the resolution, suggest ing that the duty on sugar be included in the tariff amendments being con sidered by the finance committee. It was referred to the finance committee merely as a suggestion, and not as an expression of opinion on the subject. Senator Sherman then began his speech on !the financial question, read ing from a manuscript, and receiving close attention. Speaker Reed and Mr. Henderson, Mr. Dalzell, tMr., Walker and other members of the bouse were on the floor and followed Senator Sherman with close attention. IN THE HOUSE. WASHINGTON, Jan. 3. The session of the house today lasted five minutes. The journal was read and approved. A message was received from ,the sen ate and the house adjourned until Monday next. TAiRIFF AND SILVER. What Warring Senators Upon. Will Insist WASHINGTON, Jan. 3. The Re-I publican members of the senate com- j mittee on finance have discussed the ; tariff bill at length. They bad before them all the amendments which had j been offered in the senate and devoted , themselves especially to considering the feasibility of so amending the bill as to insure its passage. It was sug gested that some of the western Re publicans, led by Senator Mitchell of Oregon, would demand the restoration of the full MoKlnley duty on wool and the senators concluded to investigate the probability of strengthening the measure by complying with 'the demand. They gave ilike considera tion to the known wishes of others and without deciding upon any changes concluded to get all the light they could obtain before proceeding to any definite course of action on 'the tariff. While the silver members of the committee have not decided upon the exact phraseology of the substitute which they will present it is under Stood that the wording in a general way will follow that of the amendment offered by Senator Jones of Aakansas, and the resolution introduced by Sena tor Vest. The first section of t!he Jones amend ment will be changed so as to provide for absolute free and unlimited coin age f silver at 16 to 1. Another provision of the substitute will look to the issuance f silver cer tificates n silver dollars to be coined under the first section. The issuance of bank notes of de nominations of less than $10 will be prohibited. The secretary of the treasury will be directed to com silver bullion now in the treasury for the purpose of reduc ing treasury notes issued under the act of 1890 and provision will be made for the redemption of greenbacks in either gold or silver. The committee did not conclude consideration of the bill. The failure wa3 due to the fact that the silver ma jority of the committee' was unable to agree on the terms of the substitute which they propose to report for the house bill. Tbe members favorable to silver, including Voorhees, Vest, Jones of Arkansas, and Walthall, Democrats, and Jones of Nevada, Populist, were in conference an hour before the full committee met, but found the task of preparing a bill to which all could agree somewhat more complicated than was anticipated and were com pelled to ask for more time. It was made apparent, however, that the differences were not radical as it is still believed by the majority that there is no insurmounitable difficulty in the way of reaching an agreement on the section of the bill providing free coinage of silver. The Republican members were in conference several hours, devoting the greater part of the time to the tariff bill on the lines of work on that bill done yesterday. The Republicans are disposed to give more attention to this measure than the bond bill. They consider the latter measure has been virtually taken out of their hands, as the majority is against them, but con sider it possible that the tariff bill can be so modified as to get through. VENEZUELA READY. Pleased to Present Her Case at Wash ington. WASHINGTON, Jan. 3. Minister Andrade of Venezuela notified his gov ernment today of the appointment of Ohe Venezuelan commission. The case of Venezuela - is ready ito present at any time, although the Venezuelan authorities will take no steps toward offering evidence until the rules governing the commission are announced. So far as known, Minister Andrade will present the Venezuelan case, as he has long, acquaintance with the subject and is, moreover, a fluent advocate in English. The British authorities will not formally recognize the commission, but the British side of the case will be secured by application of Ambassador Bayard to the London foreign office.

The crowd that gathered was not very large, but the business element of the city was well represented. Director-General Hatch gave a resume of the work done by the carnival associ ation and also the mean items of ex pense that will be necessary for tbe success of -the venture. For decorating he figured would cost $500. A like sum for music and $500 for the main tenance of the Indians that will be brought to the city during tie fiesta. He also said that the two railroad lines running into Phoenix had made liberal inducements and that the connecting lines had agreed to make one fare for round trip with a fifty days' limit from all eastern and western points.

General Sampson and Wade Huling3 suggested that Col. Hatch be tendered a vote of thanks for the excellent work done by him as head of the Carnival association and that he remain as pres ident of the association, all of which melt with the hearty approval of the audience. The committee will wait on the bal ance of the business people and en deavor to get them to raise their sub scriptions and from the promptness that some of the people responded last night they will not have much trouble in raising the money. CENTRAL AMERICAN COLLEGES. Professor Caruth Give3 Interesting Figures. CHICAGO, Jan. 3 Professors of the modern languages departments in. representative educational institutions of the west assembled for a three days' conference at University of Chicago last evening. This is the first annual meeting of the Central Modern Lan guage conference, which is the result of a meeting of a meeting of modern language instructors held in Chicago last June, when it was decided that the universities and colleges of the west would be further advanced by a separate organization. Professor Carruth of the University of Kansas, president of the conference, delivered the annual address. He said: "Of the 370 colleges and uni versities of this country 240 are situ ated between the Alleghenies and the Rocky mountains. I estimate the number of college instructors In mod ern languages within the territory of this conference at 1,000, while there are probably half as many more fairly well trained college graduates teaching in academies and high schools. If the personal contact, which I take to be among the chief benefits derived from such an organization, is not to oe largely lost, a western society is in- I believe, it will seem more and more to the .teachers of this great valley. Following the address the confer ence adjourned for a reception to the visitors. The conference today will hear tlja reports of secretary and treasurer and' will appoint committees for the com ing year. A discussion of a plan of or ganization will also take place.
