Report That Knplfanrt In Knuhlns: Troops Into Cape Colony Denied Sidney llni ton Snys the Government Policy Will ' Bo Supported by tho Country. London, ,Jan. 7. Frequent and pro longed conferences havo taken place throughout tho day anion? Mr. Jos. Chamberlain, secretary of state for tho colonics, Mr. (i. J. Qoschcn, first lord of tho admiralty, and tho heads of the war and admiralty department. Gen. Lord Wolseloy, commander-in-chief of tho British forces, and tho on tiro headquarters staff, busied them selves at tho horse guards until a late hour Monday night. The colonial office has heard nothing1 of the alleged rising of the Uitlanders against President Kruger, of tho Transvaal republic, tnor havo tho au thorities of that office received any in formation thnt Dr. Jameson has been rescued by tho Uitlanders. Moth re ports are discredited by tho colonial authorities. In regard to the report that the Brit ish government is rushing troops into Capo Colony, and tho story that 1,200 soldiers left Bombay Sunday and more are to follow, it is learned at tho war office that no troops havo been especially ordered to tho cape. The only transport ship conveying troops from Bombay is tho ste.imor Victoria, which is bringing 1,200 soldiers home from tliat place. The Victoria was or dered to call at Cape Town on her way home to learn if the men she had on board would bo needed in Ashantce. The report that troops wero being sent from Bombay to the Cape, un doubtedly originated in a misconcep tion of tho destination of the men on board the Victoria. . A dispatch from Johannesburg dated January 1, sayB that tho German and American residents of that city, after unsatisfactory interviews with the government, joined the National Union of Uitlanders, which is now a united body. In an interview Monday Mr. Sidney Buxton, who was parliamentary secre tary of the colonial office in Mr. Gladstone's late administration, said that tho government would doubtless receive the unanimous sup port of tho country in its policy in the Transvaal. He cited statements made by tho lato government in tho house of commons, tho purport of which was similar to those made by Colonial Sec retary Chamberlain to tho effect that tho govcrment would adhero to its ob ligations under the convention of 1SS4, and would uphold that convention in all its provisions., UTAH CELEBRATES.

Thn Nearness and Overwhelming Numbers of the Patriots Clonllrmed Thousand!) of ltefiicces Pourlnc Into Havana , Tho Pa ti lot Army Within bight. Havana, Jan. 7. A panic prevails in tho Cuban capital and suburbs. Couriers are rushing back and forth from the official headquarters and tho streets aro filled with excited groups discussing the situation. There is also a busy activity among the military. Humors aro afloat of a number of serious engagements, but no details can bo obtained. The nearness and overwhelming numbers of tho patriots is confirmed by the many families who have fled from tho rural districts c and aro seeking refuge in Havana and tho suburbs. The patriot armies are within sight of Havana, and tho firing of rouhkets and cannon is plainly heard in tho eastern buburbs. The trains that can be gotten into tho city on the few railroads that have not yet bcetudestroyod by the patriots, aro loaded with refugees from tho surrounding cities and vil lages. Hundreds of fieldhands also havo arrived in Havana with their families. Some of these men say that they could see tho patriots blow up a railroad bridge immediately after tho train had crossed within a fu"w miles of the city. Hundreds of families in the suburbs nnd in tho city have abandoned their homes and aro crowding the quay, watching with eager faces for steamers to take them from the island. All sorts of craft ia being utilized by tho refugees, who offer their last peseta, so long as tho owner is willing to keep them from shore. Tho steamers aro crowded to their utmost capacity with lleeing pas sengers. All tho plantations in tho vicinity of Havana havo suspended grinding, with the exception of tho Toledo canefields. This and the advanco of tho patriots has caused an' alarming exodub of fam ilies to Mariano and the larger sea ports. AH traffic in tho west is inter cepted. WAR CLOUDS. Troublo Uetwccn CSrrmnny and England Oier African Matters feeems Imminent. Pauis, Jan. 7. The exchange of tele grams between Mr. Chamberlain and President Kruger shows thnt neither side is prepared to inako any conces sions whatever.

Ex-Minister liibot, in tho Gaulois; M. Do Cassagnac, in the Autorite, and M. Ilochcfort, in tho lntransegant, all in dorse tho emperor's message to Presi dent Kruger, but say Germany, finding that England has out-maneuvered her in getting all the best slices of terri tory in South Africa, is now making a show of force in order to get a better commercial vantage ground. M. Itochefort says that whoVi tho French flag is displayed at the Alham bra theater in London shouts of ap plause are always heard, but when tho German flag is seen there hisses and grunts of disapproval prevail. M. Do Cassagnac says: "It would be childish to attempt, in common with Germany and in opposition to Eng land, any diversion of the cruel mem ories of 1870-'71. As long as Alsace Lorraine forms part of the German dominions no alliance is possi ble between Germany and France.
