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 SHRIOUS INJURY.
In Which Skillful Surgeons May Save
a Life.
NOG'AjLES, Ariz.,' Jan. 3 (Special
Dispaton 4 to The Republican.) In a
quarrel here last night Juan Chenate
shot Rufino Mabante.
The ball entered it the left of the
navel, piercing the intestines. Drs.
Welles and Chenoweth removed the
intestines, sewed up where the bullet
penetrated the large Intestine in our
places, and returned -the intestines to
their place, sewing up the incision.
The man is resting easy and may
recover.
The two men were joking each
other about a woman. Both got mad
and above is the result.
iChenate gave ihimself up to the offi
cers and is in jail.

THE WOffi OF C01EESS.
All the Interest in the
Senate.
Sherman Speaks Upon the
Finances.
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.
DEFENDING THE COAST.
Senator Squire Pushing His Fortifica
tion Bill.
WASINGTON, Jan. 3. Senator
Squire has called a meeting of the
committee on coast defense of the
senate fori immediate consideration of
his bill on fortifications and coast de
fenses. General Graighill, chief of engineers
United States arm, will make his state
ment t the committee as to the needs
of sea coast cities and bis ability to
erect necessary fortifications if the ap
propriation of $87,000,000 shall be
made, as called for by the bill of Sena
tor Squire.
NEW YORK'S MINING EXCHANGE.
NEW YORK, Jan. 3.-nArrangements
are practically completed for the open
ing of the new mining exchange. All
classes of mines will be listed. A
party of western mining men will

Fresh Impetus.
Business Men Raise their Sub
scriptions. Director General Match Gives a
Resume of the Work Done by

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. He
further said that means would have to
be devised to raise the sum of $5,000,
whiclh would be absolutely necessary
that the carnival will be a thorough
success. Col. Hatch then announced
that Dr. J. M. Ford would take the
chair for the evening.
Dr. Ford came forward and made a
few remarks and said that be would
follow Col. Hatch and raise his sub
scription $50 in order that the funds
might be raised.
The following gentlemen mads brief
speeches - and likewise raised their
subscriptions from $10 to $50: Aaron
Goldberg, Dr. Goodrich, B. Heyman,
Gus Hirschfeld, Ben Butler, Geo. H. N.
Luhrs.

would raise itheir subscriptions to a
good sum: M. Jacobs, John Dennis,
Walter Talbot.
Col. Hatch suggested that the com
mittee of business men tihat called the
mass meeting be appointed a perma
nent finance committee. The sugges
tion was acted upon by unanimous
vote.
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.
