IT LACKS POWER
Senate Committee Hears Inter
state Commissioners Prouty
In Favor of the Bill to Give
the Commission More
In the Matter of Railroad Bates.
Law Constantly Being
WASHINGTON, Feb. 21.—The senate
committee on interstate commerce
heard Commissioners Prouty and Clem
ents of the interstate commerce commis
sion, in favor of the bill to give the com
mission more power in the matter of
railroad rates. The principal argument
was made by Mr. Prouty. He said (hat
the commission was now powerless. An
order of the commission could be
blocked, and even if approved by the
courts, it would take three years to en
force it throught all the courts. The
order of the committee should be effec
tive at once to accomplish anything.
He was questioned at some length by
different members of the committee. In
the course of his statement, he said that
grain was now being carried from Chi
cago east at less than the published
rates. The commission wanted power
to adjust rates when complaints were
made and found valid, and also author
ity to examine the books of the railroad
IDAHO RIOT CASES.
Investigation by the House Military Com
WASHINGTON, Feb. 21.—The hearing
of witnesses in the investigation alleged
improper action by the United States
military authorities at Wardner, Ida.
began before the house committee on
military affairs. The room was crowded
and among those^)resent were Brigadier
General Merriam and Governor Steunen
berg of Idaho. Before beginning the
hearing, the committee adopted a form
of proceedure offered by Mr. Hay of
Virginia, that the witnesses for the
complainants should be first heard with
opportunities for response from the
The first witness, A. A. Frazer, a
lawyer of Shoshc^ie county, where the
trouble occurred, testified that the civil
courts were doing business at the time
when martial law is said to have been
in operation. Representative Lentz,
who conducted the inquiry, explained
that this was a groundwork for judging
the need of martial law.
Fred C. Robertson, a lawyer of Spo
kane, told of visits to the scene of the
riots, including what he termed the
"bull pen," and gave a detailed descrip
tion of the mines where the trouble oc
curred He explained the friction grow
ing out of the employment of non-union
miners by the Bunker Hill mine, the
gathering of 1,000 miners on April 29,
and the destruction caused by the dyna
miting of the Bunker Hill plant. Gov
ernor Steunenberg proclaimed that a
state of insurrection existed and several
men were arrested and put in the "bull
pen." Mr. Robertson applied for writs
of habeas corpus for the arrested men,
but the courts held that they would not
interfere with the action of the gover
nor, which in effect, the witness said,
was a suspension of the writ of habeas

cital when the committee adjourned for

Debate on the Forto Rican Bill Continues.
No Nicaraguan Agreement.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 21.—Before the de

resuxhed, the senate bill to authorize the
construction of abridge across the Red
River of the North at Drayton, N. D.,
Mr. Hepburn (Ia.) attempted to secure
an agree to take up the Nicaraguan

Uinnenota Supreme Court Affirms a Law
Formerly Declared Invalid.
ST. PAUL, Feb. 21.—The supreme
court as constituted since Jan. 1 has
overruled the supreme court of last Oc
tober, has overruled Judge Kelly and
sustained the other judges of the Ram
sey county district bench, and has per
haps resolved the new charter problem
for St. Paul by declaring constitutional
and valid in all particulars the law
passed by the last legislature authoriz
ing the levy of an additional mill and a
half school tax by the school district of
The law thus sustained was identical
with the law which proposed to author
ize a similar levy in St. Paul, except
that the St. Paul law gave the added
power to "cities now or hereafter hav
ing over 50,000 inhabitants," while for
Minneapolis, where the board of educa
tion makes the school levy, the law ap
plied to "school districts." But the
court goes further than merely to im
ply a reversal of the dicision of last fall,
when a divided court pronounced the
St. Paul law unconstitutional. The last
sentence of the decision, written by
Justice Lewis, declares in terms, "We
therefore hold, overruling State vs.
Johnson, that the act in question is con
The court holds that the act is con
stitutional and not special legislation,
that as to the amount levied it is not
based upon special legislation and is
therefore uniform in its application, that
the levy, certification and collection of
the tax does not depend upon special
law, the general statutes being ample,
and that while recognizing school dis
tricts organized under special law, the
act is not repugnant to the constitu
tional prohibition against amending, ex
tending or modifying special laws.
CLARK AGAIN TESTIFIES.
His Only Purpose in Entering Politics Was
to Defeat Daly.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 21.—Senator Clark
of Montana was again the star witness
before the senate committee on privi
leges and elections, notwithstanding Dr.
Tracey was also heard.
Mr. Clark necessarily went over much
of the ground covered by him in his tes
timony Saturday. He was cross-exam
ined by Mr. Campbell and insisted that
he had spent no money for corrupt pur
poses during the Montana senatorial
campaign. He gave a detailed state
ment of expenditures for political pur
poses during the legislative and senato
rial contests which footed up, as Senator
Turley announced, to $139,000. He de
clared that his only purpose in entering
upon-the campaign was the overthrow
of Mr. Daly's rule in the state, which,
he said, was so tyrannical that he would
not desire to continue his residence in
the state if it was to continue.
Mr. Campbell said during the day
that Mr. Daly would go on the stand in
rebuttal. He is expected every day.

Most Settle in Good Faith.
ST. PAUL, Feb. 21. —Attorney Gen
eral Douglas has received the findings
of the Duluthland office in the Andrews
and Clements cases, in which the state
contested the issue of patents to the two
claimants on the ground that their set
tlement on unsurveyed land, which the
survey subsequently determined to be
state school land, was not made in good
faith and in strict compliance with the
law. In both cases the application pi
patent was denied.

Hart occupied Colenso after a very
slight resistance by a weak rear guard,
and we hold the line of the Tugela on
the south side, from Colenso to Eagle's

LONDON, Feb. 21.-2:56 p. m.—The
war office has issued a dispatch from
Lord Roberts the main importance of
which is the fact that it is dated Paar
deberg 7:05 p. m. Monday. Paardeberg
is 30 miles east of Jacobsdal. The dis
patch announces that the railroad to
Kimberley is open and that General
Methuen will proceed there with rein
forcements forthwith, and that large
supplies will be forwarded to the town,
GUARDING THE NEWS.
Whatever of Good Has Been Keceived It
Is Not Given to tbe Public.
LONDON, Feb. 21.—Whatever good
news may have been received from the
front is being carefully guarded. In
spite of the queen's announcement to
the Fourth battalion of the Lincolnshire
militia prior to her departure from -Os
borne house to Windsor, that good news
had been received from the seat of war,
the war officials solemnly averred that
they had received no news up to 1:30
o'clock p. m. Unofficially it is rumored
that General Kitchener has brought
General Cronje to a standstill and has
engaged him, and it is added, the war
office now is only waiting the result of
the battle. This, however, though
plausible, may be premature. In any
case the confident hope that General
Conje has been out off from Bloemfon
tein continues to preyail in London,
especially in view of delayed dispatches,
saying that the Free Staters, when they
saw the extent of the British force,
were in favor of surrendering.
The first train for Kimberley from
Cape Town has been sent out and the
neighborhood of the famous siege seems
thoroughly cleared of Boers. General
Buller, apparently, is contenting him
self with shelling the Boers from his
newly gained position at Monte Christo,
which according to good opinion, is
likely to form his base for another at
tempt to relieve Ladysmith.
The Westminster Gazette's military
critic says he believes the Boers have
started northward in Natal, and will
raise the siege of Ladysmith and rein
force General Cronje. But this must be
regarded as rather optimistic, at any
rate until General Buller has developed
the Boers' second line of-defense, which
on every attempt to reach Ladysmith,
has proved impregnable.
A dispatch from Pietermazitzburg
dated Monday, Feb. 19, says all is quiet
Zululand, and the Boers bodies
are reported to be retiring upon Dundee
and Helpmakaar, leaving small forces
and two pieces of artillery at each mag
According to a special dispatch from
Tarkastad, a refugee who has arrived
there says the Boers are 6,000 strong at
Stormberg but that at Burghersdorp
they have only a small town guard.
Much Sniping on the Tngela.
DUKCAJT, Feb. 18.—Evenin*.—While
General Buller is continuing his move
ment on the extreme right and has
made every disposition for the defense
of his position to the left and south of
the Tugela, by maintaining there a force
pdequate for that purpose, isolated
parties of Boers sometimes cross the
river. There is much sniping.
LONDON, Feb. 21.—The casualties
Among General Buller's forces in the
fighting at Hussar hill, Monte Christo
hill and other places, from Feb. 15 to
Feb. 19, were: Killed, Captain N. H.
Burney and 13 men wounded, 6 officers
and 154 men.
RELIEF OF KIMBERLEY.
Dispatch From Modder River Gives Some
of the Particulars.
MODDER RIVEB, Monday, Feb. 19.—
Although the rapid march of General
French's division was marked by a num
ber of conflicts, the actual entry into
Kimbs.'ley was unopposed. When the
British were stiU eight miles off the
signalling corps intercepted a heliograph
message from the beleaguered garrison
to Modder river, saying:
"The Boers are shelling the town."
The advancing column replied:
"This is General French, coming to
the relief of Kimberley."
The garrison was incredulous and
thought the message was a Boer ruse
and flashed the query:
"What regiment are you?"
The reply satisfied the defenders oj
Kimberley that the anxiously awaited
succor was at hand. A few hours later
later General French at the head of the
column, made a triumphant entry into
the place, the people surrounding the
troops and intermingling with them,
cheering wildly, grasping the soldiers'
hands, waving flags, hats and handker
chiefs and exhibiting in a hundred ways
the intensity of their joy. The inhab
itants had been on short rations for
some time, eating horse flesh and living
in burrows under heaps of mine refuse.
Diminishing rations were served out
daily at 11 o'clock in the market square,
under the shell fire of the enemy, whose
guns opened on the square whenever
the inhabitants assembled. No horse
food was left.
Throughout the siege, Cecil Rhodes
provided the natives with work and
food, and thus kept them quiet.
The miles of convoy bearing provi
sions for the relief of the column and
the town, slowly winding its way across
the plain in the direction of Kimberley,
was the gladdest sight which greeted
the eyes of the besieged for four months.
General French's march was so rapid
and the heat so intense that many of his
horses died of exhaustion.
At the crossing of the Modder river,
the Boers bolted, leaving their tents,
guns, exen, wagons and large quanti
ties of ammunition in the hands of the
British. Moving northward, the Boers
again attempted to stem the advance,
but General French turned their right
flank and reached his goal with insig
nificant losses—seven men killed and 35
wounded during three days, from Wed
nesday, Feb. 14, to Friday, Feb. 16.
After a night's rest at Kimberley, Gen
eral French's column pursued the Boers
to Drontveldt, surrounded the kopjes on
which they were posted and shelled
them till nightfall, when the Boers fled,
leaving many dead.
NOW IS BULLER'S CHANCE.
Spencer Wilkinson Gives the Commander
in Natal Some Advice.
LONDON, Feb. 21.—Spencer Wilkin
son, reviewing the situation in The
Morning Post, dwells upon the impor
tance of the operations of Sir Redvers
Buller and says:
"Now is General Buller's great
chance. Now is the time to throw him
self with all his might into the task be
fore him and to hit hard, without count
ing losses too closely. He will then
probably defeat the Boers and relieve
Ladysmith this week. Failing this he
will at any rate prevent them from
sending reinforcements to the Free
In conclusion Mr. Wilkinson reiter
ates his statement that victories are
more important than positions, adding:
"No doubt Lord Roberts has done the
best that is possible, but the essential
thing is still to destroy the Boer army."
