NEW YORK, July 21. A cable to the
Tribune from London says: The death
of Mrs. Kruger may have some influence
in shortening the war. Kruger himself
has been reported to be exceedingly de
spondent over the military operations,
and the correspondence between Reitz
and Stein has Justified his discourage
ment. His domestic bereavement may
cause him to lose heart for continuing
the hopeless struggle. His Dutch physi
cians have been warning him for months
against the consequences or excitement,
since his heart action is abnormally
q A story is brought by influential South
Africans that Commandant-General
Botha was strongly disposed to surrender
but did not consider himself at liberty to
do so against the Judgment of Kruger.
General Botha has a family to provide
for and is poor and without resources.
South Africans assert he is dependent up
on allowances which Kruger has agreed
to make for him If he. continues the
struggle as long as possible.
PHETOKIA, July 21. Mrs. Kruger, wife
of former President Kruger of the South
African Republic, who died yesterday af- i
ternoon of pneumonia, had been ill only
three days. She was 67 years old. Mrs. !
Kruger's long separation from her hus
band," combined with the death of her
favorite daughter, Mrs. Smith, last week,
had completely broken her spirit. Mr.
Eloff, and many other members of the
Kruger family, were at her bedside when
she passed away.
LONDON, July 22.-AU the morning 1
papers publish kindly editorials concern
ing the death of Mrs. Kruger and ex
press sympathy with Mr. Kruger. The
Times begins thus: "The English people :
will feel genuine sympathy with the aged j
ex-President in the severe domestic be- t
reavement which has befallen him
is followed by an eulogy on Mrs. Kruger.
"Owing to the Sunday telegraph hours
in Holland." says a dispatch to the Daily
Mail from Hilversum, "Mr. Kruger was
not informed of his wife's death until
the evening. The news was broken to
him by Dr. Heymans and Secretary
Boeschoten. Mr. Kruger, who had Just
returned from church, burst into tears

SUGAR STOCK I ITALIANS ON i
TO BE SWELLED THEIR WAY
Among the interesting passengers on
board the transport Thomas is Sur
geon Tahy-Ud-Deen, the only native
Syrian holding a commission in the
United States Army. That honor and
success are possible to any young man
who has the requisite energy and per
severance, and that without regard to
his color or nationality, is afforded a
striking illustration in the case of Sur
geon Najid Tahy-Ud-Deen, who has but
two months since been commissioned
as an assistant surgeon in the regular
Army service. He is a native of Mount
Lebanon, Syria, where his father is
president of the Supreme Court.
The young man received his early ed
ucation in the Protesiant college at
Beyrout, and came to America imme
diately after his graduation. Here,
soon after declaring his intention of
becoming an American citizen, he en
tered the University of Maryland, from
which he graduated with high honors
in a course of medical study. He was
then offered a position as resident
physician at Bay View Asylum, Balti
more, but declined to accept, preferring
an Army career. As soon as he ob
tained his degree he enlisted in the Ar
my as a hospital steward and was as
signed to Washington barracks.
1 Shortly afterward he took the exam
! ination for acting assistant surgeon,
and was placed on the eligible list. He
: received his appointment February 26.
and remained at Washington until he
received orders on March 16 to report
for duty at Columbus Barracks, Ohio.
t Surgeon Tahy-L3d-Deen is only twenty
i three years old. t

MANILA, July 22. The conference
between Adjutant General Corbin and
General Chaffee, recently held here, will
probably result in radical economical
and administrative reforms in the army
of occupation. It is estimated that the
total cost of maintaining the American
Army in the Philippines can be reduced
by 60 per cent in the course of one year.
The principal change will be the re
duction of the present force to between
1 20.0UO and 30,000. The abolishment of
i the present Army districts is contem
I plated and three brigades with perma
nent headquarters at Manila, Dagupan
jand Uoilo or Cebu will be instituted in
I their stead. The troops will be concen
' trated at three points selected, aban
doning all minor posts.
Generals Corbin and Chaffee have al
so decided upon one single general mil
itary hospital, to replace the seven mil
itary hospitals in Manila and vicinity.
The insular constabulary is now be
ing organized. It will be maintained
by the insular government, and is ex
pected to be amply able to preserve
peace and enforce the law. This con
stabulary will, as -a general rule, be
armed with rifles, but its members
have been given 5.000 shotguns and 2,
000 ponies relinquished by the Army.
A Michigan lodsre of Elks are to have
an a-Hnual convention, the expenses of
which are to be paid in copper cents.
Tniovn thousand dollars in coroer3
' were sent to Chicago for this purpose.
