LONDON, April 27.—It is now apparent
that the tibanods of -Roberts catoh
iiig the raiding Boers in a net are very
dender. The Boera have everywhere
retired at the pressure of the British
vanoe and the hope that General liiui
dip would have been able to induce them
tb'remain at Dewetsdorp until they bad
been forced to fight or surrender has
been dis&ppointed.
No attempt was made to pursue the
commandos retiring from Wepener.
Everything now depends upon the
progress of General Frenoh'p cavalry
brigade, but they are entering a very
difficult, hilly an^ p^ticftny unknown
oountry. The cavalry has already li&l
along marob over heavy and sandy
roads, audi nothing is known regarding
the condition of the horses. In any
ease it is no^ a wje-bet^een the Boers
and the tpr&ba of Gendwd French and
General Hsunilton.
The. stories of the advance of British
infantry tod isvtillenr and of the ability
of the Boers to 'move rapidly Mth guns
and baggage over their own oountry
lead to a belief that Lord Roberts'' en­
veloping operations will fail and will
have to be repeated further north. At

Remarkable Speecli by Allan O. Myer» at
'Wichita, Kan.
WICHITA^ Kan., April 27.—Allan O.
Myers of Ohio, responding to a toast pt
the banquet of the Sunflower league
of Kansas, following William J. Bryan,
created a sensation by his utterances.
Mr. Myers drew a dark picture. The
country was fast racing to destruction,
said he, and Mark Hnnna, William Mc
Kinley and Greatr Britain are doing it.
Then suddenly turning toward Mr.
Bryan he exclaimed:
"You may be elected, sir, by a million
majority, but they will not permit you
to take the presidential ohair. Look at
the fate of William Goebel. Men whose
pastime is bribery find in murder an
Amusement. Ohio was bought in 1896,
the country was bought, it will be
bought again in 1900, and Mark Hanna's
reward will be a seat in the United
States senate.
"The masses of the country would
continue to permit the encroachments
of the classes," concluded Mr. Myers,
"until finally, too late for. a restoration
of rights by the ballotr Then the sword
and gun, violence, revolution—a new
order of things."

BOTE TO TEWFIK
Turkish Foreign Minister (Jets
av Communication From
Washington.
Not Made Public, But Understood
to Be a Demand For In­
demnity.
Two Words in a Dispatch That
Appear to Have Impressed
the Porte.
CONSTANTINOPLE, Wednesday, April
25.—The negotiations between the
United States and the porte regarding
the American indemnity claims have
again been transferred''here. United
States Charge d' Affaires Griscom has
handed to Tewfik Pasha, minister of
foreign affairs, a note based on instruc­
tions he had received from Washington
the tfenor of which has not yet been
made public. It is understood, however,
that it demands prompt payment of the
indemnity. The note will be discussed
at the council of ministers during the
day. Similar steps by the other powers
are regarded aB imminent.
W&P
Charge Griscom, in the present cir­
cumstances, declines to express his
views.
Payment the Only Isaae.
The only issue at present, howiever,
is the execution of the porte's repeated
proniises to Minister Strauss to pay the
indemnity. After Mr. StrauSs left the
matter remained in abeyance until the
Associated Press dispatch from Wash­
ington, April 17, sharply reminded the
Turkish government that the question
required urgent attention. The porte
immediately telegraphed to the Turkish
minister at Washington asking for ex
planations for reported 'strained rela­
tions. The minister replied that he had
called at the state department and was
informed that the situation had not yet
assumed a serious character. The
words "not yet" seem to have im
pressed the porte, and' on the strength
of this information the sultan issued
an irade in regard to the Kharput mat­
ter, which he hoped would serve as
sop,' and defer pressure in the demands
for indemnity, althovgh it is generally
recognized that permission to rebuild
will be of little value to the mission­
aries without the payment of in­
demnity.
Another irade issued April 25 orders
Rear Admiral Ahmed Pasha to proceed
to America in order to study the con­
struction of battleships.
CLAIMS OF THE POWERS.
Embassies to the Porte Ask Their Govern­
ments for Instructions.
CONSTANTINOPLE, April 27.—In view
of the steps taken by the United States
government in regard to the claims
arising out of the Armenian massacres,
the embassies of Great Britain, France,
Austria, Italy, and Germany have asked
their governments for instructions as to
their similar claims.
The promulgation of the irade author-?
izing the rebuilding of the American
structure burned at Harpoot and the en­
largement of the Roberts college is re­
garded, as showing olearlv the intention
of the Yidis Kiosk to be agreeable to the
United {States in the hope that the lat­
ter will not press for the payment of
the indemnity. The United States gov­
ernment, however, has no intention of
abandoning its oialm.
Hot an Ultimatum.
WASHINGTON, April 27.—It is learned
that the note of Mr. Griscom, United
States charge at Constantinople, is
founded onthe state department's in­
structions to press vigorously the claim
for indemnity already lodged with the
JKH$e. The'note is not am ultimatum in
any sense, but is in continuation of the
expressed determination of the state de­
partment to exhaust all peaceful and
proper means to secure a settlement of
these American claims.

Bouse Votes to Strike Pneumatic Tube
Section From Fostofiice BUI.
WABHISGTON, April 27. '-The house
put its heel upon the mail pneumatic
system now in operation in New York,
Boston and Philadelphia, and if itsao
tipn stands the whole service will be
crushed out. The postoffice committee
had recommended an increase of tne
appropriation for this service from
1225,000 to $725,000. The proposed in­
crease was attacked by the appropria­
tions committee under the leadership of
Mr. Moody (Mass.) with such vigor
and success that in the end the house
voted by 70 to 50 to strike the entire ap­
propriation from the bill. Mr. Moody
created a sensation by the manner in
which he assailed the methods of the
pneumatic tube company und the direct
charge that a former member of con­
gress who had been a member of the
appropriations committee had been a
holder of the stock of the company.! He
charged that a block of stock had been
sent as a New Year's gift to a near rela­
tive of another member of congress, but
to the credit of the member he said the
dishonoring gift had heen returned to
the sender by the next mail. Although
the tube service was highly commended
by other members these revelations
transformed the sentiment Of the house
which has several times voted for the
tube service^ into a decisive majority
against its continuation in any form.
LOUD OPPOSES TAWNEY.
Hopes He Will Not Be Obliged to Slake
Public Certain Information.
WASHINGTON, April 27.—Without pre­
liminary business the house resumed
consideration bf the postoffice appropri-1
ation bill.
Mr. Tawney (Minn.) moved to in­
crease the salaries of 479 railway postal
clerks, class 5, A, from $1,300 to $1,400.
Mr. Loud, chairman of the postoffice
committee, opposed the amendment.
He had read a postal card just received
saying that the writer had received a
letter from Mr. Tawney urging all rsiil
way postal clerks at once to write or
wire their representatives in congress to
vote' to substitute the Tawney reclassi­
fication bill for thef provision in the bill,
"I hope," said Mr. Loud, "that I
will not be forced to 'go into this whole
proposition. This is only part of the
scheme and I trust the gentleman from
Minnesota will not force me to disclose
here the form of concerted attack which
is being made on congress."

and his speech, although made iii a
humorous vein, was punctuated with a
few serious remarks that turned the
tide of laughter into hearty cheering/

MILWAUKEE, Wi&, April 27,—A spe
cial from Applefcon, Wis., says: It is
stated the Chicago and Northwestern
Railway company will build a branch
this summer from Applefcon due north
to Gillet, in Oconto county. This branch
will not only open a very rich hard
wood country, not now tonohed by a
railway, but will also relieve the north­
ern end Of the Narthwestern's main
line from the immense pressure of pulp
wood business from the north to Fox
river points which each spring seriodsly
interferes with the ore carrying trade.
The new line will also reach Seymour,
Outagamie taunty, and Shawano, Sha­
wano county.

CHICAGO, April 27.—The LONG«^AS^
of boycott of the Dewey celebration by &&
organized labor has taken form. The
executive committee of District 8, of,
the International Association of Ma
chinists has issued an edict declaring
the promoters of the celebration antag
onistic to union labor and~cffderingY^
'members of the union to take no part 1
toit." '-v
The Evening Post says it is reported
that the material men have forced a
split in the contractors' association, be
tween which organization and the
Building Trades unions a war has ex
is ted for two months, costing millions
of dollars in wages and paralyzing
building operations.
The report comes from a member of
the committee appointed by the city
council. The contractors for brickwork,
it is said, have have been forced by the.
brick manufacturers to agree to arbitra­
tion, thus retiring from the position as?...
sumed by the contractors' association,
that "the building trades council must
go." Some of the contractors under
pressure have agreed to treat with the
municipal committee, and this, it is
.said, means the beginning of the end of
'one of the worst building trades strikes
Chicago ever experienced.
FREIGHT HANDLERS STRIKE.

DULTJTH, April 27.—The freight haa«

quit work.. The trouble is over wages.
They have been receiving $2 per day
and 25 cents an hour for overtime. Two
dollars and a quarter per day and 30
cents an hour for overtime is demanded.
As men are not very plentiful and navi­
gation is just beginning to open it is
expected that the trouble will be short
lived and an early agreement reached.
NEW YORK CENTRAL STRIKE.
Employes of the Shops at BufBslo Have

BTTFFAXjO, April 27.—The employes of
the New York Central railroad shops,
about 2,000 men in all, are on strike.
This number includes 1,800 men in the

in wages and the reinstatement of cer­
