Chicago, Oct. ll.—The following ca blegram was received tonight by the Chicago Tribune from President Kru ger of thjs Transvaal republic. The .cablegram was sent in ansjyer to a «ja*- 1 sage from the Tribune requesting a statement of the position of Transvaal in the present crises. In the cablegram which follows small words have been Glied in, in order to make smoother reading: '•Pretoria, Oct. 11.— Tribune, Chi cago:— Through the Tribune we wish to thank our many American friends Jor sympathy in the present crisis of the republic. Last Monday we gave England 48 hours notice within which to give assurance that the dispute will be settled by arbitration or other peace ful means. The notice expires at 5 .today. The British agent is recalled and war is certain. This is the Gtting end of the British policy of force and fraud which has marked all south Af rica with the blood of Afrikanders. We must now make South Africa free or the white man's grave. The repub lic's friends include all nationalities, among them a strong American corps, showing it is not a case of Boer against Oullanders, but ail nations against the English. We have full faith in free dom and republicanism, in the right eousness which guides the destinies of Rations. President Kruger. War la South A/yie$. From the latest cablegrams from South Africa the Boers and English are at war. No active fighting has been done, but both armies are in motion And marching to take possession of strategic points. A battle cannot be long delayed. All efforto to avert the war have proven futile and now that It is begun, it is di^Sculi io (srsppst results and tell ,what may grow out of it. England and Jhe United States are strong allies, so strong that Qtij.er great powers have feared them, but as each country has its handfuls with war of its own, there is no telling what advantages countries like Russia and Germany may attempt to gain from present conditions. Ab a matter of course, all mining in terests in the rich fields around Johan nesburg will be paralyzed and the great output of gold will be stopped as long as the two armies are facing each other Jd battle array, labor in the will bring about fosses that will be enormous and which will be felt by other nations not inter ested.

Bryan the political issues, particularly the Philippines, and said: "We are planning to make things lively in the next cam|>aign and I think we will succeed better than in 1896. HU Position Regarding the Philippines Clearly Stated. Des Moines, Oct. 11.— was interviewed today on Former issues have changed somewhat and seem to strengthen our position and we will add many votes to our columns. I do not deem it advisable or possible to state so far ahead what issue will be chief in importance. Con ditions and circumstances may change between then and now as to make cer t tin b«ues of greater relative importance then, than now. Our issues of 1896 are just as important now as then, others have arisen since then and may still command more attention." As to the withdrawal of troop« from the Philippines, Mr. Bryan dictated this statement: No, I don't favor the withdrawal of our froops. What I do and have repeatedly announced it that we should declare our position in une quivocal terms, so that the Fiiipinoes can not doubt it, to grant them full and complete indepppdcnce the moment they have established a stable govern ment. I believe if we should make such aq announcement right now the war would cease in a very short time and our troops could withdraw without laying down their arms in the face of an enemy. Furthermore I believe if we had made such an announcement In the beginning the war would never have occurred. I am not unaware that a few half-hearted efforts have been made in that direction from time to time, but they were made in such a way as to raise strong questions as to their sin cerity." Mr. Bryan said tl*at after a few days in Iowa he would go to Kentucky and theuce to Ohio to close his patgn. more cam Dewev says; ."I am not fatqillar jgith the duties of the president, but I tup with those of a sailor, qnd I will stick to my calling, ures would never see light if moo would only do what they know how to do; if they would only stick to their calling.

The movement first became apparent, . . , . in the court house, nearly two weeks 1 ago, by the appearance of a large crack in the thick wall» on both sides ; of the corridor, and the plastering fall- j ing off the ceiling in large blocks, was thought at the time that it caused by blasting on a shaft In the I Thomas lode In an adjacent lot, and the blasting was stopped, since then, how ever, other brick buildings west and southwest of the court house have also been cracking. The handsome residence of United States Senator W. A. Clark, at the corner of Granite and Idaho Btreets, has been almost rent asunder. Cracks extend clear through the house, almost In the center. The fissure runs from east to west, on the west side they ex tend from the roof down through the three stpries into the foundation, but It is not so pronounced on the east side. The break on the west side Is an Inch or more in width. The nterior of the house is also cracked co siderably, in dicating that it is not the mere settling of the house, but the sliding of the ground upon which inn southern half of the building rests. The First Pres byterian church at Broadway and Ida ho streets, hait also been cracked, has the appearance of being torn apart. The residence of John K. Bordeau has also been affected by the movement. It is the opinion of several mining snd geoligical experts that there is a sepa ration of one formation from another along a regular plane or possibly a min eral vein - There are other theories advanced, but they are more or less vague and indefinite. h ; w »s !

What a profitable lesson those politicians could learn from that one page of Mr. Dewey's book of every day life.
