Distrett at St Vincent President Pal ma't First Message Went to Top of Crater Lost 5 Relatives Col lege Boat Races Aeronaut Killed. Concentration Camps. An oltlrial cablegram from Lord Kitchener, tinted Pretoria, Saturday, May 31, 11:15 p. m.. says: "A document containing terms of Mrrender was signed here this evening at hulf past Hi o'clock by all the Doer repiefi ntulives as well as by Lord Mll ner (the P.iitish high commissioner In South Africa), and myself." The news of peace In South Africa, contained In the foregoing dispatch from Lord Kitchener, was not expected In London Sunday. Foon after the receipt of the dispatch, however, the news spread to the clubs and hotels nnd was received with much enthus iasm. The church bells were rung to acclaim the good news. A crowd gathered at the Mansion House and the; lord mayor of London, Sir Joseph C. Diinsdale, announced from a bal cony that terms of surrender had been signed In South Africa. Lord Kitchener's definite announce ment of pence was received nt the war i. (lice nt 1 In the afternoon and wn c onimunlca(pd to King Edward und nil the members of the cabinet befurp It was given out to the public. The Sunday evening calm of the Lon d in Ftrccts was broken by enthusiastic Rinsing, shouting and horn blowing. The hotels. cIiiIir. the public houses ami the streets were not the only places where the people were actively dumoiiFt rating their Joy; the pence news was announced In the churches Sundny nnd by some congregations I v.ns received with applause. In all the churches of London prayers o th.niKsgiving were offered and special hyirns wtp fiir.g. He?vy Rairs at St. Vincent. On Satin day tile dense clouds form ing a canopy over t lie greater part of the Islaii.l of St. Vincent lowered and a severe thunderstorm, accom panied by a heavy rninfull, broke over St. Vincent and continued till Monday, rau-ing the mud streams In the Wind ward district of Oeoigetown to be flooded. The water pipes were dam aged, several houses were washed away and two lives lost. The rninlall was hi heavy that It disturbed the bodies of the buried victims of the volcanic disaster, and rorps.-s with putrid flesh hanging to the bones were exposed to view. During the rainstoim the Soufrlcra volcano appeared to give forth dense clouds rf vapor and steam, rising to a considerable height and spreading over Hie nck'hborhood. Roaring founds from the mountain also caused apprehension ot another eruption. Se vere lightning lasted nil night Satur day nnd on Sunday. Eight Inches of rain fell at Kingstown between Satur day nnd Monday, the heaviest down fall since the hurricane. Further interesting incidents which occurred during the recent eruption of the volcano are ci titinimlly coming to light. While all the residents of the tillage cf Morne Uoude were leaving that plr.ee by boat a man who had declined to leave was Been running ill) and di;wn the shore, screaming for help, nnd saying thnt the ground was hi t nnd that the wntcr was boiling and that Inva was coming down the mountain. It wa Impossible to rescue him and the man died a horrible death. The I'nlted States steamer Dixie hns done splendid work here and has rendered great assistance to the gov ernment while landing supplies from other relief fhips. besides landing th? rations brought bv 1he American ves sel. President Palma's First Message. President Palma's message was de livered to the Cuban senate Wednes day. The message opens by giving thanks to th? Almighty for His assistance in currying out the work of obtaining Cuban independence and asks divine aid in the establishment of a firm and stable government. "Never did a people light with more perseVoiuiH p." says President Palma, "and Faerillte more for liberty than have the Cubans. No people, there fore, are more entitled to see their just efforts crowned wilh success." President Palma declares it Is the ptirposo of the government to devote Its attention to education and especial ly to primary schools. "It is very satisfactory to us," says the president, "that the republic of Cuba hus been officially recognized by the I'nlted States. Great Itritaln, Franco, Mexico, Guatemala. Nicar agua, Santo Domingo, Ecuador nnd rarngiiny, and we hope that other lotintries will also recognize our re public. We mn-t cultivate cordial re latlons with all nations and make treaties of amnesty and commerce fa vorable to Cuba. We must also talc especial care that the relations be tween Cuba and the I'nlted States be most friendly. In order thnt mere be no dillieulty In arranging the politi cal or commercial questions which af fect both countries." Went to Top of Crater. The National Geographical society has scored a great triumph through its representative here. Professor Augelo Ileilpiln, who on Saturday, with three guides, ascended to the top of the crater on the summit of Mont Pelee. Professor Ilellprin is also president of the Philadelphia Gcographlcu! uo-ciety. The volcano was active but amid a thousand dangers Professor Hell prin reached the summit and looked down into the huge crater. Here he spent seme time In taking careful observations. He saw a huge cinder cone In the center of the crater. The opening of the crater Itself is a vast crevlco 500 feet long and 150 wide. While Professor Ilellprin was on the summit of the volcano several violent explosions ot steam and cinder-laden vapor took place and again and again his life was In danger. Ashes fell about him in such quan tities at times as to completely ob scure his vision. One particularly violent explosion of mud covered him from head to foot with the hideous, viscid and semi-solid matter thrown out. Professor Ilellprin still persis ted In his study and observations, however, and twice more was ho showered with mud. Report of Trade Conditions. The week's developments have been largely favorable. Crop conditions, partlculaily those of the spring-sown cereals and cotton, have shown furth er Improvement. As to the crop outlook generally It might be said that nearly every ag ricultural condition pleases. This Is in a measure true even of winter-wheat conditions, which have vastly im proved over a month ago. Cool weather, it Is true, has retarded retail demand, and measurably cheeked reorder business with Jobbers, and heavy frosts have done damage to vegetables on the northern edge of the country, but this is regarded as only a temporary halt, and the general volume ot business has been helped by the large amount booked for next au tumn's delivery. Among the Industries general activ ity still rules, with Iron and steel, hardware, lumber, the building trades and bituminous coal displaying ex ceptional activity. Failures continue well down to the minimum and bank clearings are beginning to compare better with a year ago. Railway earn ings hold all the former advantages shown over preceding years. Muslnes failures for the week num ber K3 as against 1"2 last week, 144 in this week last year. 135 in 1000, 129 in ISM nnd ITS In 1808. Lost 5 Relatives.

Rrugicr and her six children took refuge In a cave, where they remained for 62 hours after the catastrophe. When the little party was discovered they were all terribly burned. Mme. Brugicr had sulliclent strength to murmur: "Water for Germnlne," before she died. A cup of watPr was placed at the lips of Gennalne, who expired after tak ing the first mouthful. Death of an Aeronaut. Harry Hicks was killed at King ston Point, a summer resort, Friday. He had been engaged to make dally balloon ascensions and the afternoon was booked for his first exhibition. When (he balloon hnd reached an altitude of about 2.000 feet, Hicks commenced the descent by means of a parachute, coming down slowly to about Sou feet above the Hudson river. For some reason Hicks lost his hold nnd tell, striking head first on a sand bar In the river. I licks was nephew of Charles Ka brick, well known as a balloonist. Cornell Won at Cayuga Lake.

Wagner, for two and n half years adjutant general of the army in the I'hillpine Islands, de scribed to the Philippine committee of the senate the concentration camps in certain provinces. He said they could not be compared to the Weyler camps In Cuba. They were necessary In order to clear the country of ladroncR and guerillas.

Chamberlain and Balfour Received Ovations Liberality of io: Terms. Leader Anounced the Government Would Move Vote of Thanks to Lord Kitchener and Troops. London, June 3. Not lu years had tie house of commons been so thronged with a brilliant and enthus iastic audience as when the first lord of the treasury and government leader In the house. A. J. Ballour, announced the peace terms concluded with tho Boers. An hour before the house met, a large crowd on Whitehall vociferously cheered the nc.tublo politicians, par ticularly the colonial secretary, Jo seph Chamberlain, who walked uncon cernedly from the colonial office with a broad smile on his foce. 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 cf questions in the house for the mo mentous annciincemcnt. An unsually large number of peers sat in their gal lery and behind the ladles' grill aristo cratic women were closely packed. Noticeable among them was Lady Sa rah Wilson, who thus saw the end of the drama In which she played such an active part. Mr. Chamberlain and Mr. Ralfour both received a great ovation as they walked to their seats, Mr. Chamber lain's ovation being by far the most enthusiastic 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, Mr. Balfour stood up and an nounced the terms on w hich the war In South Africa had been ended. The reference to the Boers acknowl edging King. Edward as their sovereign was the hit of the day, being greeted with a talvo cf "hear, hear" and ap plause from the galleries, the occu pants ot which refused to be silent. As the liberality of the terms grew plainer, the cheers on the government side of the house diminished, while the opposition's satislaetion was propor tionately Increased. Through all this the Irish members sat Impassive, though earlier in the afternoon they had startled the house by a demonstration, which at first was thought to be in honor of peace. This, it was soon discovered, was caused by the reappearance In the house of Will iam Redmond, who hns just returned from the I'nlted States. When Mr. Balfour's statement was concluded every one seemed glad cf the opportunity for a hearty laugh, caused by the government leader's hu morous quashing of the suggestion that the commons adjourn in honor cf peace. Sir Henry Campbell-Bannermnn, the Liberal lender, in behalf of the opposi tion, said unbounded satisfaction would be felt throughout the empire at the conclusion of peace. They were unanimous In admiration of their late enemies, now their friends nnd fellow citizens', whose military qunlities, ten acity of purpose nnd self-sacrificing devotion to liberty and country hnd won them the respect of the whole world, and, foremost of nil, the respect of their opponents. Everey member would offer congratulations to the king nnd to the country on the thrice blessed restoration of peace. Mr. Balfour having announced that the government would tnke an early opportunity of moving a vote of thanks to Lord Kitchener nnd the forces in South Afiica, the members of the house of commons returned to their ordinary avocations. NEGOTIATIONS FOR PEACE. Started March 12 Various Offers Re fused by the British. London, June 3. A parliamentary paper gives the correspondence pie ceding the peace agreement. From this it appears that General Schalk Surger (acting president of the Trans vaal) Informed Lord Kitchener, March 12, that he was prepared to make peace proposals. A month later the Boer delegates submitted propositions. On April 13, the war secretary, Mr. Brodrick, refused to entertain any proisisitions based on the independ ence of the republics. Subsequently President Steyn of the Orange Free State and Generals Sclialk-Burger ami Botha declared that the surrender of independence must lie submitted to the burghers in the held. The British government expressed mi prise at this attitude bat an nounced its willingness to accept the Boers' surrender on the same terms that Lord Kitchener had prevlosuly offered General Botha, and to give fa cilities for a consultation of the Boer commands. On May 17 General Sehalk Burger and Mr. Steyn informed Lord Kitche ner that the burghers assembled at Vereeniging had empowered a com mission to negotiate peace terms sub ject to ratification at Vereeniging. Lord Milner; Lord Kitchener nnd the Boer commission met May 1U. The latter o fie red to surrender tho inch", pendenee of the republics, ns regards foreign relations; to surrender part of their territory and retain sell'-gov-eminent under British supervision. These proposals were forthwith re jected. Tho same day Lord Milner, General Smuts nnd Judge HerKog drew up a form of agreement to be submitted to the conference at Ver eeniging for a yes or no vote. ThU was very similar to the final agree ment and with few alterations was up proved by Mr. Chamberlain, who in giving notice of his approval, told Lord Milner he must inform the Boers that unless It was accepted within a fixed limit of ,time the conference would be considered ended and his majesty's government would not be hound In any way by the present dec la rations. The Boers asked to be allowed until Saturday night to give an answer und the result wa3 seen in the termination of the war. The la.-.t message of Lord Milner to Mr. Chamberlain June 1, after the sig nature of the peace agreement, men tions that Mr. Steyn's name was omit ted I rum the signatures because be was too ill to come up to Pretoria adding that he had already taken his parole. Of the Oranr,e Free State flrTogales General Dewet signed first because Mr. Steyn nominated him president" on retiring from ference. "at tiiiu the con Feeling In Holland. The Hague, June 3. The news of the conclusion of peace In South Africa was received here with very mixed feeling. While there Is general satisfaction that the war is ended, unvarying regret is expressed at t'.ie loss of Boer independence. The Boer delegates here are in a particularly trying position. It has been learned upon good authority that the British government at the last moment refused to allow the Boers in South Africa to communi cate with their leaders In Europe; thus the delegates on the comment were entirely shut out of tne negot iations and were Ignorant even of the terms of surrender, except as they learned of them through the news papers. A Dutch official referring to the news from South Africa said: "The delegates made a great mistake in not complying with the ardent wish of the Dutch government at the time of the overtures made by Dr. Kuyper the premier, which was that they apply for safo conducts to South Africa." Sympathy With Mr. Kruger. Paris, June 3. General Louis Botha telegraphed to his wife, who Is at Brussels, Sunday, that he had signed tho peace agreement and would start for Europe next month. The munici pal council adopted an address of sym pathy with Mr. Kruger, "whose peo ple have so valiantly fought for right against might." Killed by Chloroform. Batavia. N. Y., June 3.
