Over the Situation Iu the Provirics

The Statement that the War Is

New York, December 31. The

It is well kDawn here that Geueral
Otis is badly Trorned over the
situation in Cavile province. There
are 2000 organized insurgents in
Cavite, and as many peasants have
rifles and are ready to take a shot
at an American, whenever oppor
tunity is offered.
Before General Lairton's death
it had been planned that his move
ment to subjugate Cavite should be
pushed two weeks or longer if nec
essary. His death has had a bad
effect on the troops, and the fight
ing since them, with its list of
American casualties, makes the
statement that the war is over seem
Negotiations are said to be in
progress for the surrender of the
province. There has been talk of
this sort before but the negotiations
fell through. If they fall now
General Otis, it is said, will depend
upon American successes in the
north and famine in the south to

Texans Will Be Speakers in Chi
Chieago,Dec. 31. Arrangements
have been completed for the fourth
annual banquet of the William J
Bryan league of Chicago. It will
be held at the Tromont House
Saturday night and Colonel Bryan,
who has attended every feast given
by the organization, will be the
guest of honor and principal speak

to hold the dinner in sections or to
attempt to accommodate all com

THE NEXT POPE.
Leo Designated Him Who Is to
Rome, December 31. It is as
serted that the pope, after the re
cent ceremony of opening tha holy
door at St. Peter's cathedral, ad
dressed his intimate entourage and
said : "I thank Divine Providence
for granting me the grace of being
able to celebrate this great func
tion, and I wish for ray successor
a grander and longer raign, to the
greater glory of God. My success
or will be young, as compared
with my own age, and will have
time to see many glories of the
papacy and the church."
Later Leo clearly designated
Cardinal Giiolamo Maria Gotti,
prefect of the Congregation of In
dulgences and Sacred Relics, as
his successor. Cardinal Gotti, the
famous Genoese monk, is a man
of great piety and modesty. Now
about 64 years of age, he has al
ways lived the life of an ascetic
and despite the dignity of a prince
of the church, he always sleeps iu
a cell and od a hard mattress.
GOING ON SECRETLY.
The World Says Boer Recruiting
Is Being Done.
New York, Decenber 31. The
World says: Recruiting foj South
Africa is going on secretly but
withgreat activity among the
Irish volunteers of this and the
nearby cities. That several num
bers of the Tolunteerg, which is a
branch of the Cl&n-Na-Gael, are
already in the Boer country pre
paring for the reception of recnits
is well understood. There has
been a larga damand for drill reg -
ulations, of the United States
from Irish societies, and one firm j
in this cjry that publishes thesevre
gulations, has filled large orders
within the last few days. A prom-itiohs,
