WASHINGTON, March 20.—1n a report to the state department. Consul General Guerither, at Frankfort, Germany, sub mits a recent publication in which the Frankfort chamber of commerce call 3 attention to the growing American com petition in the markets of the world. The publication says that the harbor au thorities of Calcutta advertised for bids on locomotives The lowest English bid was $7,249 for each one, the time of dcliv ry to be limited to nine months; the lowest American bid was $5,095, the time of do livery to be limited to six months. The American firm received the contract. A recent contract for furnishing a large quantity of cast iron pipes for the Dutch colonies was awarded to an American firm, which bid was nearly 25 per cent lower than German competitors. Large orders for rails recently were placed in American hands from Holland. The Eng lish government has been obliged to give the Americans preference over their own works on account of the extremely low prices and the quick time of delivery. The consul says American -jompetition will be greatly felt, especially in the Chinese market after the hostilities shall cease. The state department has received from Consul Marshall Halstead, at Birming ham, a report stating that the Birming ham Daily Mail is responsible for the statement that a "ring" of English tube makers, by excessive demands at the last bidding, forced the Birmingham gas com mittee to purchase American-made tub ing for fittings. The British quotation, says the consul, were so high that an American firm succeeded in selling tub ing "at a figure which no one in England could touch, r.nd not only was the price cheap, but the quality was vastly su perior." Although the combination, says the con sul in conclusion, is not so strong this year, "so satisfactory has the American product proved that it will hardly be surprising if the gas committee, now ready for a new purchase, asks for ten ders from America. WANSHINGTON, March 20.—The post office department has Issued a call for bids for furnishing street letter boxes to the government for the next four years for use in cities throughout the covntry.

Ho also spoke guardedly and carefullj', bo that no false Inferences could be drav/n from his admission that the negotiations had. failed. Lord Kitchener was credited with offering te:ms v hich Gen. Botha was not disposed to recommend to the other Boer leaders. The responsibility for the continuation of guerrilla warfare tc the bitter end consequently rests with Gen. Botha and those with whom he ha 3 consulted. This was the impression which Mr. Chamberlain clearly meant to convey. The fact that he had made the explana tion proved that Sir Alfred Mllner, rather than Lord Kitchener, has been attempt ing to negotiate with the Boer leaders since, otherwise Mr. Brodrick would have been the one to announce the unpleasant news. The promptness with which the full details of the negotiations arc prom ised indicated a desire on the part o f the government that the terms offered to the Boers may be known for the moral effect here and in South Africa. The ministerialists accepted Gen. Bo tha's answer philosophically, as a proof that the war must go on until the Boer leaders were captured, and that the chancellor of the exchequer might as well pigeonhole hJ3 mo-e favorable budget and warn taxpayers to prepare for the worst, the sugar duty as well as the In creased income tax. The pro-Boer Lib erals, who are looking tor strange revela tions from Holland, are predicting that Gen. Botha will have a version of the negotiations quite different from the one authorised by the colonial office WET IN MILWAUKEE. City Famous for Beer Suffer* From * Too Much Water.
