distribution with the opening of the mar

added, were sent to London on the Um

Under the cover of Sunday quiet the
packers scored heavily , on the striking
teamsters and succeeded in filling all their
distributing stations about town, except
these, in the Fulton market. The move
by the packers came unexpectedly. All
was ¦ done quietly anQ quickly. The car
loads of meat which have been standing
on sidetracks were sent to the stations
and unloaded, .ice was brought from the
yards on the cars and by evening all was
ready for. to-morrow's business. ,
The coup of the packers brings the
strike to an acute issue. Up to the pres
ent time the strikers have been Informing
all who dared to get their meat from
these- companies that if such a course
should be continued their Ice supply would
be cut off. With some of the distributing

PARIS. June 2.— The news of -peace in
South Africa reached Paris too late for
publication in the afternoon papers, and
did not become generally known yesterday
evening and hence caused no excitement.
This morning's papers, however, give due
prominence to dispatches. announcing the
tact . and describing the way the news
was received in London. 'The comments
of the press are mostly tinged. with re
gret at the failure of the Boers to se
cure independence, and highly praise the
co.urage and tenacity of the defeated
people. ¦ ' . . - •
The Figaro bdlieves that, after- aston-
the British embassy are sharing the jubi
lant feeling over the settlement of the
war in South Africa. Official notice of
the signing of the terms of surrender
came to Mr. Raikes, the British charge
here, in a cablegram from . the foreign
office. It was very brief, and was in ac
cord with the statements contained In the
press dispatches. It probably will be com
municated formally to the United States
Government to-morrow. Nothing official
has reached the state department from
Kmbassador Choate at Ixmdon or any
other source. President Roosevelt was
furnished a copy of the press dispatch
giving the news of the signing of the'
articles of surrender.
The prevails in official . cir
cles that the terms of surrender named
by the BritiBh In their negotiations with
the Boers have been very liberal in char
acter, perhaps from the double desire to
bring the war to a close and to have this
happy event formally proclaimed before
the coronation of King Edward.
From a commercial point of view the
cessation of hostilities will result ben
eficially to American exports to South
Africa, the reports issued from time to
time by the foreign commerce bureau of
the Btate department showing that they
have suffered considerably since the be
ginning of the war.
Correspondents in South China report
the defeat of the Kwangsi rebels near
banning and the capture of Sung Yung
Seng, the leader. The Winchow corres
pondent of the Honkong Telegraph, de
scribing the battle in the hills near Nan
nJng, says:
From an eye witness, I learn that the
affair seems to have been a very bloody
encounter. The. troops at first were un
able to rout the rebels but with the help
of two Maxims and a couple of • twelve
pounders they forced them to scatter.
It was while leading his men and encour
aging them against, the Imperial troops
that the leader was wounded by a frag

sent to Canton for punishment and ex
Peking correspondents say the semi
foreign uniformed soldiers of Yuan Shlh
Kal who guarded the imperial cortege
en route to the eastern tombs created a
reign of terror on "the way, the villagers
mistaking. them for foreign troops. The
country people fled as soon as the pen
nants were seen. News was received that
the organization of a police force has
been commenced at Wuchang, and an
Englishman, Charles Preston, has been
engaged in Shanghai. as superintendent.
The police will number 600. It has been
further decided to organize a police force
in Hankow with an American as super
intendent. V
VICTORIA. B. C., June 1.— Advices re
ceived by the steamer Clavering state
that in Southwest China a new Boxer
insurrection has broken out. led by Mo
chihing, who killed his wife and family.
Others emulated his example before the
campaign commenced.
The; Boxers first murdered a French
missionary and later killed a Belgian
priest, and fifty Chinese officials engaged
in collecting taxes were killed.. A church
was destroyed at Wei Hien, where a na
tive, missionary was killed and a large
number of converts were slaughtered.
Troops were sent against the Boxers, who
defeated them. The rebels are credited
with a programme of overrunning Honan
and Shantung and then making for Pek
ing. They are well armed.

naturediy joined In the enthusiasm. In
the meanwhile the news had been con
veyed to most of the churches, whose
bells clanged out the message of peace.
Pre-acncrp stopped in their prayers and
their sfrmons to read Lord Kitchener's
inorsage to their congregations. In St.
"Dear old Bill," or some such name,
would be called out by some In the crowd,
with an added "He'll soon be 'ome."
When the- general public celebrated the
peace nc-ws in the streets society . was
«"7ual]y joyous, although not quite so
demonstrative. Many references were
made to the coincidence of the declara
tion of peace in South Africa with the
"glorious ist of June." ever memorable in
Oreat Britain's history by reason of
Howe's victory over the French fleet :n
"Good old Kitchener" and "We're bloom
in' glad it's over"' were among the phrases
shouted by the crowds. A large number
of those who had relatives at the front
participated in the street scenes and lent
a serious and often pathetic touch to
what would otherwise have been an
amusing scene.
Outside of Buckingham Palace, where
King Edward kept himself in seclusion, a
crowd of fairly good proportions gathered
and here, as elsewhere, the national an
them was sung lustily. Two sentries and
many policeman guarded the historic
message outside the War Office. It could
scarcely be read by the flickering gas
light. After reading this notice the people
passed on in eager crowds into the more
eastern districts of London, where there
wtre no illuminations such as made the
clubs on Pall Mall noticeable.
ously patriotic, just in' time to-^see the
Lord Mayor of London, Sir Joseph C
I>imsdaie, ccme out- of a balcony and an
nounce that the terms of surrender haul
been signed in South Africa. Amid many
cheers the Lord Mayor made a short
speech, in which he expressed his hope
that London would show its appreciation
oi the good news by behaving itself de
cently and in an orderly manner. . '
"Let us." said he in conclusion, "now
pray for a long and happy peace."
At this statement the assemblage yelled
lustily, and at the instance of the Lord
Mayor gave hearty cheers for King Ed
v.ard. followed by others for the men'
who had died in South Africa since the
war commenced.
The Times, is equally certain that the
interests of the loyal colonists, whether
of Dutch or British blood, have not been
overlooked in the settlement.
The Times pays a tribute to the saga
cious and conciliatory diplomacy of Lord
Salisbury and Lord Lansdowne. the For
eJpn Secretary,- which has built up an
amicable understanding. It declares, with
the Lnited States and which has done so
much to sober' the reflections of less
friendly states. ¦ ¦ .
The Daily Telegraph says: "It is well
for Ensland that this crisis arose to be
encountered when it did. Later it. would
have been too late. The danger we have
met and mastered was a mortal danger
and England alone, of all the powers of
Europe, possesses wealth; energy, com
mand of the sea and indomitable stead

has been taxed, to prevail ' over the most
insiduous and formidable ¦ hostility by

The dispatches received • here from
South Africa describe the rejoicings in all
the principal towns there which followed
the announcement of peace yesterday,
and say that to-day CMonday) has been
proclaimed a general holiday. ¦ '.
In an editorial on the news from South
Africa the Timeg points out that there
can be no treaty, but merely, as Lord
Kitchener" names it, a document contain
ing "terms of surrender." The Times is
confident that the terms offered to Gen
eral Botha a year ago have been virtu
ally maintained.
The Daily News says.: 'it will do most
to give us dignity and nobility In the hour
of victory if we pay homage to the im
mense and heroic courage oi our foes.
Let us think of them not as enemies, but
as the bravest fighters who ever met us
in the field."
The Daily Chronicle says: "We have
gained peace with honor. If our staten
men are henceforth wise in making use
of their opportunities we shall find that
we have also gained peace with good
will." -
The Standard exhorts the nation to ac

Cabling from Pretoria, the correspond
ent of the Dally Mail, after announcing
the signing of the terms of surrender, says
the British authorities absolutely rejected
the suggestion of the Boer delegates that
the terms of surrender should be ratified
by Mr. Kruger, and declared that the
Boers in Europe had no hand in the set
"The terms will show," continues the
correspondent, "that the British Govern
ment carried its contentions on every vital
point, while the minor concessions, par
ticularly those in regard to the generous
financial treatment, will greatly appeal to
the Boers in general. The value of Lord
Kitchener's personality as a factor in the
conclusion of peace can never be over
estitmated. There is no doubt that peace
will be popular among the Boers."
Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman, the
Liberal leader in the House of Commons,
said in an interview, on the announcement
of peace:
"The whole country will .rejoice over
peace. I know nothing of the terms or
conditions, but I hope they are such as
will be full of promise for the future."
. The Archbishop of Canterbury will
shortly appoint a day of national thanks
giving,* in which Cardinal Vaughan . will
join in behalf of the Catholics. ¦ / .
The Cabinet will meet this morning and
probably -will discuss the wording -of the
statement to be made by Mr. Baiiour. the
Government leader in the .House of Com
mons. This statement is eagerly 'awaited,
as-.it is understood Mr. Baifour will-en
lighten his hearers as to the conditions
upon which the Boers surrendered. On
this" Important point 'no further informa
tion-has been forthcoming. other than the
intelligent anticipations with 'which the
papers have been filled for the past week.
I>r. Parker electrified listeners at
the City Temple by suddenly interjecting
the dispatches received at the War Of
fice, to which he added an expression of
hope that this would also mean peace in
England, and that there would no longer
be anything heard of pro-Boers or pro-
Britons. • . ' ¦. ..;.".

was a purely political one. M. Deschanel,
the President of the former Chamber,
was the presidential candidate of the
moderate Republicans. . He was opposed
by Leon Bourgeois, who represented the
Radical groups. M. Deschanel was de
feated by a vote of 203 to 267 and his four
years' tenure of the presidential chair
His defeat was almost a foregone eon
elusion and in view of the results of th©
general, election of April 27, which gave
the Radicals a majority in the House, it
occasioned no surprise. The election of
M. Bourgeois, however, makes the politi
