Admiral Hampton's flact off Hnntliigo, are
conneoted here aa Indicating a dotlgn ou tbe
part of Orent Britain aud America to be
ready for nuy exigency growlDg out ot the
Transvaal or Samonn situation.
The purpose of either Government Is not
clearly defined, but it can be gathered from
tbe attitude of the nations to each other that
they would make common cause In case Ger
many, taking advantage of England's trou
ble with tbe Houth African Republic or
America's need for her fleet In the Philip
pines, should nttouipl to play a bigL-biiuded
game in Ham on.
There are Indications bore nlready that It
is to tbe interest ot tbe Culled mutes to
keep a watchful eyo on the movements of
Germany with respect to the Kamoan Is
lands. Euglnnd Is known to have bad prop
osition made to her In Berlin wblob. are not
ncceptnble, and It is within tho range of
probabilities that Germany may attempt to
enforce her demand'.
In that event the United States could not
be expected to desert Englund, nnd espe
cially as Germany's Idea of a partition of
tbe Islands is kuowu to be tba possession of
the whole group.
Tba offlclnls here will not comment on the
situattou In uuy alarmist wny, but it rat be
Mated that there Is nn official opinion, based
on the movement of thu British Channel
Squadron, that this movement by England
Is the most efTiictlve to check any hostile
movement ol Germany, and may be takeu
n notice to her that ber game, whatever it
Is, Is being watched.

effectively. The armored tralu returned to
"Tbe crew of the armored train any tbe
Boers fired thirteen shells, but their nlm wa
wretched, and not a single shot struck tbe
train, which then made bold to approach

"The burghers replied with heavy rifled,

bullets struck the train.
"Subsequently tbe crew learned that five
Boer aud two Boer horses Were killed, whlla
severul Boer aud borer were wounded.

Six Week to Complete III Message.
Washington, (Speclnl.)-rAU Ihe Informa

message of President McKlnley to Congress
will be tbo most Important that any Execu
tive baa written since the days of the Civil
War. In statssmanahlp, politics nud flnnnce
It will touch tbe countiy In II most vital
places. Inasmuch aa the messago will ben
loog aud Important one, the President will
beglu work upon It Immediately. He will
have about six weeks to complete this work,
nud In the meantime be will have to deal
with the routine matters which come up and
with all other questions which may arise.
He will not have any loo much time to get
the document In shape for Congress.
No doubt Is now left as to the President's
Intention s to Ihe Philippines. His
speeches In tbe West have clearly demon
strated that he will recommend to Congress
that the Islands bocome the property of the
Uulted States for all limn lo come. He will
not recommend how the Islands may be
treated, as that question will be left to Con
gress, but be will go so far as to ask Con

that there I ho longer hope for them to con
tinue tbe Insurrection. The Tresldeut bas
ascertained that the Filipinos nro dully
growing more hopeful tbat tbo next ulectlon
may bring about a change in thu policy ot
tho United States. Tbey do not believe that
Congres will take any notion at the coining
sisslon, nnd think that the whole question
of their future will be left until nfier lb
national election of next year.
The President see tbat If Congress should
take prompt action oue source of Filipino
Wipe would be eliminated. With that step
taken, the Insurrection would weaken, ami
if there should be discontent n year from
now It would be suppressed by the return)
of the Presidential election. The President
will commit films. If to expauslou nud to tbe
