DOER TELEGRAMS DISCREDITED.
As tho foregoing does not mention the

General Gut acre's return to England
is accepted as being in the nature of a
recall, though no reason Is given for
it. and it will be associated in the pub?
lic mind with the lack of success.
Lord Roberts criticised his manage?
ment nf the Stormberg attack, and pos
firbly Qatacrc's having arrived an hour
nnd a half too late to rescue the Red
dorsburg force may have decided his

Tt Is learned that the Boer govern?
ments have formally notified Portugal
that they consider the shipping of Brit?
ish troo;is and munitions of war to
Rhodesia,'by way of Beira, Portuguese
East Africa, to be tantamount to hostile
action. This, however, will not stop
General Sir Frederick Carrlngton's
force from entering Rhodesia. Whether
or not the Boers will mnkc reprisals
upon Portugal remains to be seen,
though the liest Informed opinion here

are not likely to back up their present

them Into hostilities with still another

PACIFIC CABLE BILL.
Washington. April 11.?With little de?
bate of Importance the Senate to-day
passed tho Pacific cable bill, a measure
appropriating $3,000,000 for tho con?
struction of a cable lino between San
Francisco und Honolulu. The bill was
unanimously reported by the Commit?
tee on Nu.val Affairs.
During the greater part of tho ses?
sion the District of Columbia, appropri?
ation bill was under consideration. As
passed it carries nearly $7,457,765.
A resolution was adopted calling
upon the President, if not Incompatible
with the public interest, to Inform tho
Senate whether any persons have been
executed by garrote in Porto Rico since
the United States authorities have
been in control of the island, and if so,
why that system was employed in

Mr. Burrows, of Michigan, rose to
speak on the Quay resolution, but de?
ferred his speech till to-morrow to per?
mit consideration of the District bill.
Without any Important change the
District bill was passed. The Paclfl-c
cable bill was then -taken up.
PROVISIONS OF BILL.
It provides for a cable from San
Francisco .to Honolulu, the work to be
done under the supervision of the Navy
Department, which has made surveys
and determined the practicability of
the route. The Navy Department may
use any of its ships that can be adapted
to the task of laying' the cable, and if
it needs other ships it may charter
them, or may make proper contracts
for the work. All materials, etc., under
section G arc to be of American manu?
facture unless thy cost Is above 12 per
cent, over the foreign market.
Mr- Hale explained tha.t the line pro?
vided for was In the nature of an ex?
periment, upon whose result would de?
pend the government's future course.
It might be doomed best to start the
Philippine cables from some point like
Seattle and proceed to Japan by tho
Mr. Pettus moved to strike out section
5 of the bill. He said it was absurd
that tho government should consent to
be taxed on Its own business for the
benefit of certain manufacturers.
SUGAR BATTLE REJECTED.
Mr. Tillninn, of South Carolina, as a
member of the Naval Committee, de?
fended the bill, the report In which all
the Democratic members of the com?
mittee had Joined.
He deemed it a desirable experiment
in government ownership and control,
and expressed the opinion that It might
prove a good thing for Alabama.
"Up to this date." said .Mr. Pettus.
"Alabama will not accept your bribe. I
have seen one great State near mine
accept the sugar battle, and I don't
like U." '
Mr. Tillman disclaimed any effort to
bribe either Senator Pettus or the State
of Alabama, hut he was anxious to
increase the struggling iron and steel
Industries of Alabama, .and hoped to
see the day when a government armor
plate factory would be located In Ala?
Mr. Pettus' amendment was defeated
?11 to 38?and the bill passed without
