Boll, commaudinr the hemp provinces of Southern Luzon, has issued an order to b.is officers not to attempt to organize the municipal gov ernments as prescribed by Major Gen eral Otis in. his recent order ou account of the disturbed conditions. The Americans occupy a few const towns, which tho insurgents surround, con stantly assailing the garrisons, which wo too Hinnll to attempt operations iu tho surrounding country. Major Wiso, with two companies, is in Dousol, an important towu of Sorso gon, surrounded by 1,000 insurgents. The Americans occupy trenches, and are continually exchanging shots with the enemy. Several regiments are needed to control each southern prov ince, but they cannot be spared from their present stations. Another squad ron of cavalry will bo sent to General Bell.

Fourth Assistant Postmin-ter Ganeral Bristow took over tho direction of postal affairs of tho island, relieving Estes G. Rathbono, di rector of isists, suspended Saturday, although not made public at that time. It had been generally conceded that snsiH'iisiou must come, as the charges against Mr. Katliboue of acts of crimi nal negligence have been multiplying daily. It is asserted that ho has not shown any indications of a desire to have official records kept, and that he has improperly endorsed expense ac counts, his own and Neely's, to a sur prising degree. During tho investigation now in progress Mr. Rathbono will not be al lowed to leave tho island. It is re jsirted thnt W. H. Reeves, in his con fession , made charges that reflect serf onsly npon Mr. Rathbone's honesty. Mr. Bristow and the insjKsctors have found nothing but chaos throughout tho entiro department.

State Department Meet the Imiio Rulsed by tha Coming of the lioer Delegate. Washington, May 22. Tho state de partment met the issuo raised by the coming to Wasldngton of the Boer del egation by declining to interfere in bo half of tho South African republics in the present struggle In viow of this announced decision, all questions as to the character of tho recognition to be extended to the delegates and of the suf ficiency of their credentials dropped at once into tho background. It was, after all, of little moment whether or not tho Boers were received as diplomatic ag(ita or ministers, so long as they were powerless to promote tho prime object of their mission, name ly, causo tho United States government to intervene to bring about peace. Washington, May 21. An audience remarkable for its size, sympathy and enthniasm greoted the Boer envoys at tho reception given in their honor at tho Grand Opera house under tho auspices of the congressional and citizens' com mittoo. Long before tho time for the meeting to open tho house was crowded to suffocation, and many were turned away unable to gain admittance. The interior was appropriately decorated with the national tri-colors of both the United States and tho Transvaal. Whilo official Washington was not represented iu any manner, there wero probably 80 members of the senate nnd the house occupying seats iu tho nuditoriuni and on the stage. Speaker Henderson, was in ono of the boxes, and others present were Senators Donicl, of Virginia; Teller, Tillman, Pettigrew, Mason and Wellington; Rep rettutiitives Shafroth, Atwater, Slay den, Glynn, Rupert. Gnines, Latimer, Lentz, Sulzer, Landis, Linney, Ryan, Greene, Henry (Mass.), Hay, DeAr moud, Clark (Mo.), Mciers.Rhea (Ky.). One of tho boxes, it was stated, hnd been reserved for the president, a com mittee having been sent to the Whito House with tickets of admission to the Opera homo, b'ut no representative of the president's official household was on hand. Chairman Sulzer, of the recep tion committee, presided nnd a number of addresses, all of them patriotic in clinrncter nnd earnestly supporting the cause cf tho Boers, were mndo, tho speakers including Messrs. Fischer, Wolnuirnns and WcffcIs, the Boer en voys, Senator Wellington nnd Hon. Bonrke Ccxkrnii, of New York, nnd Mr. Sulzer. The invocntiou was pronounced by tho Rev. Father Mack in, of this city. Tho audience gave a standing greet ing to Commissioner Fischer, who told his hearers why the envoys had come to this country and what they hojxid to ac complish. His reiunrks were very much in keeping with whnt he already has said in published interviews. Commissioner Weasels' speech was a vivid picture of tho Boers in their con test for their rights, of tho charity and devotion which characterized their manner, and of tho patriotism with which they all went in to fight their battles. Ho felt suro that tho audience would admit that tho Boer had many good characteristics and was not as black as ho hod been painted. The English nation apparently wished to act as judgo and jury. Ho nsked the audience whether the Boer nation had not the right to claim tho liberty and sympathy of tho United States and of the whole world. "Wo are doing the fighting iu the republics," ho said, "and havo kind friends in America who will do the speaking for us." Mr. Wolmoraus, who spoko in Dutch, said to the audience that while the en voys did expect to bo sympathetically received in this country, yet they did not anticipate that they would receive such a strong welcome as had beon shown to them in New York city and the capital of the nation. He knew, however, it could not be different, be cause tho people of this country liave the same love of liberty and sense of justice that the Boers had, and their sympathy would be a help to them in their struggle. Senator Wellington was instructed by nnanimous vote of tho nndienco to present iu tho senate Senator Teller's resolution of symiiathy with the Boers. AMALGAMATED MEETING, Wage Scale Committee May Not He Able to Make a Report llefore Tomorrow. Indianapolis, May 21. It is not known just how much longer tho iron and steel workers' convention will con tinue. The most imiortant work to bo done is fixing a wago sonic, and, as that is in the hands of a committee which has so far made no report, it is impossi ble to tell how far the work has pro gressed. It is hoped the committeo will be rendy to report today, but the prolinbil ity is it will not be ready before tomor row morning. Delegates say the work of the week just closed is perfectly sat isfactory. Most of tho important mat ters to lie considered are in the hnnds of romniittees, which begin to reixirt to morrow.

LIKELY TO BE CKOSEN BISHOP OF THE M. E. CHURCH. namllton Alno Made timid Showing In the Halloting at the (tent-rat Confer ence New Uihop Selected for South ern Aala. CincAoo, May 22. Tho west and the list were closo together and close to victory iu the sixteenth ballot for bishop nt the session of the general Methodist conference. According to the state ments made by delegates who claim to know, the findings of tho tellers, the west, as represented by Dr. David II. Moore, of Cincinnati, editor of The Western Christian Advocate, led tho east, as represented by Dr. J. W. Ham ilton, of New York, seuior secretary of tho Freedmeu's Aid and Southern Edu cation society, by about a dozen votes. Th9 result of the sixteenth ballot, as it was officially given out, is as follows: Wholo number of votes cast, C57; nec essary for a choice, 438; David H. Moore, 425; J. W. Hamilton, 43; J. .H. Day, 198. Dr. Henry Spellrneyer and Dr. Neely, it is said, gained a few votes, and the list of scattering votes was increased. Many delegates wero of the opinion that the first ballotloday would concen trate tho votes of tho conference ou Drs. Moore and Hamilton and effect the elec tion of both, thus obviating the execu tion of the suggestion that tho confer ence postpone the election. Several propositions to fix an ago limit for tho retirement of bishops were voted down in tho committee ou episcopacy. A minority report of the sub-committee, presented by Delegate J. C. Mage, recommending the life tenure, remains unchanged, as finally adopted. Foreign episcopal residences were lo cated nt Zurich, Switzerland, nnd Shanghai, China, during the ensuing quadreiinium. .Bishops Joyce and Crans ton, it is said, will be assigned to these districts by the conference. Tho episcopal residences in the United States will bo decided upon at an ad joumed meeting of the committee called for today. The committee ou itinerancy will re port to the general conference iu favor of an amendment to tho third restrictive rule, which will provide for the nomina tion of presiding elders by tho annual conferences. Rev. E. W. Parker and Rev. F. W. Warue wero elected missionary bishops to Southern Asia by tho Methodist general conference. Chicaoo, May 21. Methodist bisheps and ministerial delegates in attendance at the quadrennial conference at the Auditorium occupied numarons pulpits in this city. Among the most interest ing addresses was one by Bishop Warren, of Colorado, at the Auditorium, which incidentally disclosed the fact that tho recent action of the conference in de claring that it is not necessary that sup pliunts should knoel while at prayer is not so popular as was supposed at first. "Nor did God limit the degree of power he will give," said tho bishop. "Punl's prayer was 'May Ho givo you according to fho riches of His glory.' To obtain such power I bend my knee, Paul's customary position in prayer usually is adopted when men proy Paul's nroyer." When this utterance fell upon the audience there wns a chorus of "amen" from nil parts of tho big assem blage. A message of fraternal greeting from tho Presbyterian genoral assembly, now in session at St. Louis, was read before tho conference COBRIGAN SAW THE POPE. It I Axxerted That the yuentlon of AmerletiiiUm Wa Not RalHed at the Interview. Rome, May 21. It is asserted at tho Vatican that Archbishop Corrigan's visit will not have political results and that tho question, "Americanism," will re main in statu quo. Tho popo is devoting himself entirely to the ceremonies and receptions of tho holy year, and the moment is not con sidered favorable for raising such a vexed subject as " Amoricaiiism.' Tho archbishop's audience of tho popo was very brief. He confined himself to describing the progress of his dioceso and presented to the pope an album con taining views of edifices constructed during the last decade. EiThe topic of "Americanism" was not under consideration. PLEA FOR MINISTERIAL RELIEF. Rev. Dr. 11. I.. Agnew I-ay the Situation llefore the General Awemhly. St. Louis, May 21. John II. Con verse, vice moderator, presided over the session of the Presbyterian general assembly. Rev. Dr. Benjamin L. Agnew, secre tary of the bonul of ministerial relief, made nu eloquent plea ou behalf of tho ministerial relief fund. He stated that the board has on its roll today ono min ister's family to every eight ministers on the roll of the general assembly. In lHfiO the board had only one minister's tamily on the roll to every 87 ministers til the assembly. Rev. Dr. Wallaco Rndcliffe, of Wash ington, was the first champion of the "Peoria overture," which pro vides that the moderator shall, uj-ou tho organization of tho assembly, ap point a committee of ministers and elders to aid him to tho appoiniuieut of a standing committee, said committee to be composed of twenty-one com missioners from different parts of tho country, not more than two of whom shall lie from any one synod. Before Dr. Radclitl'e concluded his ad dress ii mid considerable excitement a call was made for the; rejournment of the assembly until Monday morningand the time for further consideration of the method of upiKiintnienf of landing committees of the assembly was llxed for next Thursday. taade ::or ;:o good. Dun's Review Note a Falling Off Com pared With Lat Yvar I'rogreu Toward AiljiiKtmenU New York, May IS). R. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of trade, issued to day, said in iart: Business is not what it was a year ago, but men do not agree in defining the difference. The working force then increasing fast, is now decreasing. Works are stopping to relieve excessive output in manufactures of paper.cotton, wool, leather and some forms of steel, whilo prices are suddenly reduced for tho same purpose in lead, wire and nails. What seems to bo "merely spring dullness" others think "the beginning of reaction." The remedy for one diffi culty does not fill tho other, and there is more need than usuul for close attention to tho meaning of events. In place of the wild speculation in se curities, which swelled exchanges a year ago, there has coiuo such liquida tion that 20 preferred industrial stocks have sold this week at prices averaging $S3.14 per shore, though the same stocks sold in April last year for f 119.66 per Bhare, and 20 common have sold this weeg for $38.49 which sold last year at $76.9!), double the price. Yet many of these comiMinies have earned and paid good dividends and all have enjoyed a year of extraordinary business. Tho in dustrials have reached the lowest, aver age they have ever known, while the 60 most active railway stocks, though do pressed about f 4 per share since early in April, are higher now than in most of January or February, higher than early in December and higher than a year ago. Business in some hues has been hin dered by the holding of prices so high as to check consumption. The closing of works by the Steel and Wire com pany, followed by tho reduction of $20 per ton in prices of its products; the closing of many paper mills because of overproduction, tho sudden reduction of 70 cents' per 100 pounds in lead from the price to which it was raised late in De cember, the report thnt tiuplnte works may be closed a while for similnr rea sons, create a feeling that some business no longer has the guiding influence of prices answering quickly to the demand for consumption. But progress toward a healthy adjustment has been rapid within the past week. Transactions at Pittsburg in Besse mer pig seem to be largely at guaran teed prices, so that definite quotations nro avoided, though much Bessemer from tho east is offered nt very low fig ures. Grey forge is a shade lower there and local coke at Chicago, while No. 1 Lehigh is quoted at $21.50 here. Bars sell at Philadelphia for 1.7"c, while the Pittsburg association reaffirms its quotation of 2 cents, which is shaded. Plates also sell thereat 1.7c, with 1.75o quoted at Philadelphia. The demand for structural nnd other products has been much reduced in part by building 6trikes. Woolen manufacturers are not meet iug a very satisfactory market at tho ad vanced prices asked, and until a change nppcars in that respect the holders of wool will need patience. The movement of grain continues large, corn still rivaling wheat iu quan tity exported.' Wheat hns advanced over a cent, and corn shows no change for tho week, but in both grains tho prospect for the coming crop is excel lent. Failures for the wek have been 117 in tho United States, against 147 hist year, and 30 in Canada, aguiust 17 last year. Death From Smallpox. PiTTsariKi, May 21.

Discussion of the administration of affairs ia Cuba by agents of the United States occupied the attention of the sen ate during a part of Wednesday's ses sion. Mr. Racon (Ga.) spoke at length on his resolution directing the commit teo on relations with Cuba to make an investifration of the conduct of financial affairs of the island, aud referred to the alleged misappropriation of the postal funds. lie insisted that the government of the United States had no authority iu Cuba aud demanded to know how soon it is proposed to redeem its pledge and leave the government of the island to its inl'.ebitants. ' The house, on Wednesday, passed the bill to incorporate the American Red Cross society. The house, Thursday, passed a special river and harbor bill, carrying f lOO.OtHl for surveys and emergency work, and devoted the remainder of the day to the Alaskan code bill. Very little of the three hours' delmte was pertinent to the measure. About four pages of the 617 pages of the bill were disposed of before adjournment. During practically the entire session of the senate Thursday tho postoffice appropriation bill was under considera tion. The measure was read and all of the committee amendments were agreed to except that relating to the extension of the pneumatic tube service.
