In the House of Com mons today on a format resolution guar anteeing the Tr -avaal loan, of $17o,000, 000 Colonial Sec . ' Chamberlain dellv ered a lengthy. ' '.""itlc speech on the African colonies. His remarks were n 'Iteration of former statements. Mr..,' -lain de clined to give the price or i.' 'ue of the now loan, but said the pros, .'Id shortly be Issued. He exDlalned tu. been decided to purchase all the e , g railways which would absorb $65,000,000 of the new loan and J25.OO0.0O0 more would be expended as quickly aa possible on railways, 112.500,000 would be spent on land settle ment, and 110,000,000 on public works. The security for the loan waa excellent. It would be a charge on the common fund of the two colonies, the Transvaal and Or ange River colonies, whose finances would be administered by the new Intercolonial council, which was about to be created for the puropse of dealing with the constabu lary, railway men and other mattera where the colonies were jointly Interested. This would be a commencement of the policy leading to the federation of South Africa which he believed waa nearer than many persons thought. The chancellor of the exchequer. Mr. Ritchie, declined to reveal tha rata of In terest In advanre of the Issuing of the pro spectus. He said the Interest and the alnk- ing fund would total 4 per cent, but it would tie his hands to announce the inter est rate alone. After some riehate the resolution was agreed to. NEW YORK, May 6. Foreign exchange was very strong today, demand aterllng selling as high as 4.810, the highest fig ures In msny months. Later in the day it waa offered at 4.8825. The primary reason for the atrength of the market was the be lief that the new South African loan will be opened for eubacrlption in London to morrow. Aa many banking houses are likely to participate in thla loan, there waa heavy buying of exchange for cable remittances. It ia thought that tha loan will ba largely over-aubscrlhed and aa a result American financial interests have doubtless asked for allotmenta considerably larger than they are likely to receive.

DETROIT, Mich.. May . At today'a see alon of the conference of the National Con gress of Mothers Mrs. Florence Kelly of New York read the report of the committee on child labor. Tbe report atatea that there la no atate In the union that haa a safe law covering tbe question of employing child labor at night. "What employer," ahe said, "will admit that he compels bla Juvenile em ployee to perform night labor?" In ber report of the employment of children on the streets, such aa the Dews boys and bootblacks of a large city, Mrs. Kelly said these little onea were prac tically outlawa so far aa any assistance they received from the newsboys' and boot blacks' homes. These institutions, she said, devoted much time to looking after tha transient foreign element and the newsboya, bootblacks and telegraph messengers only found relief in tho Juvenile courts and tbe catholic pro tectorate. Mra. Jamea L. Hughes of Toronto, In speaking on "The Influence of tbe Kinder garten on Children and Home," condemned the practice of overatudy and educational Instructions. "We are too greedy." she said, "to pour knowledge Into the minds of the young without realizing that the practice la 'in jurious to the body. One-tenth of the facts crowded into the pupil's mind at school eventually slops over and is lost in later yeara. Let ua not force the child to strive so strenuously for medals ana honors, but consider that he or she is an embryo man , .nmig and aive them only so much as they ran judiciously assimilate. Teach tbe boy and girl when In each other'a company to diacusa bright and In tellectual tblnga and do away with aweet heart talk and frivolities.

Mayor Moores In an Interview yesterday morning. The issuance of a federal court lnlunc tlon agalnat the atriklng teamatera on application of the transfer coin panics, the aaamon to tne ranks of the atrikera of about seventy-live horseshoera and less than 200 freight handlers, were the Drlncl- pal eventa In the progreaa of tha local atrtkes Wednesday. With a dozen unions and 2,700 atrikera engaged In the atruggle Deiweeu organised labor and organized cap ital, and in view of natural develoDmcnta due to the terrible atraln of the complex situation, it had been feared that arave crlsea would transpire yeaterday, but the day closed with no arrests being made and aa far aa could be learned no overt acta committed. The day waa full of excitement. Prea Ident Neat of the Longshoremen and Freight Handlers' union bad, the night before, is sued an order calling out 600 union freight handlers. This waa done aa the result of the avowed determination of transfer com panies to start their teams with nonunion drivers, many of whom had been brought Into the city from Council Bluffs and other placea. All Saloons Cloaed. Fearing an outbreak between tha union and nonunion men, Mayor Moores and Chief of Police Donahue had taken precautionary measures Tuesday night, the principal one of which waa an order closing every saloon in the city until the excitement of the atrlke bad abated. Thla order waa strictly obeyed and was generally commended aa a most wise and salutary provision. . In addition to the order closing every saloon,, another one waa' Issued prohibiting the" sale of liquor by any drug store 'or barrel house. Tbe mayor and chief had provided also extra police, none but regular officers, however. Fltty-alx patrolmen, flvo aergeanta and two captaina controlled the situation throughout the day.

Throughout the day frequent acenea of excitement were witnessed in the whole sale and business districts and at freight depota where teaming waa being done by nonunion drivers. On aeveral occasions aa many aa t.oOO or 8.000 people were as sembled and the Invariable presence of from eight to a dozen policemen, together with the restraining Influence of the atrlke leadera on their men. prevented trouble. In a number of caaea transfer companlea had aecured nonunion drivera and atarted their teame for the first time alnce the atrlke began.

Tl.e wholeoale dlstrlat and the reglona wherein are iocai.ru io . . . . ft . - - Vnlon Pacific freight housea never had a more uneasy morning than that of Tuesday. Hundreda of atriklng teamstcra and other unloniata both on atrlke and not, represent ing almoat every occupation ana crari in the city, congregated on corners and along the atreeta and hlghwaya. mo neaaa oi huslness houses and railroad offleera watched the proceedinga from their offlcea and steps and help In the work of loading and unloading wagona where the freight handlera had gone out In sympathy with the drivera. Union leadens raced back and forth giving orders while their photo graphera took snap-Bhots of the proprletora and managers of the transfer companies aa they drove tbelr huge wagona down the atreet. Mora goods were moved yesterday than on any day alnce the trlke began, but the traffic waa far from ' the full quota. Managers of a majority of the wholesale bouses aald that the congestion of outward bound shipments had been relieved and that some goods wera being received from the railway station The attempt to break the strike on tbe part of tbe transfer com panies waa not aa extenalve as promised nnd expected, but things were moving tn a degree that made the business men hope ful snd It was done without disturbances or trouble of any kind. At noon It wss expected that those freight handlera still at work In tha freight Judce Mungrr Issues re atrainlnit order ou npplloutlon of pmiirU'tora of trim "for rmti pnnlrs, forWiMInp picketing or in uuy wny IntorrVrlng with tho op eration of tennis ennngcd lu linul InjC Interstate frelfiht. Answer Is set for May LM. Strike lenders any they will Im plicitly obey the orders of the court. First effort of the compnnlrs to move freight with nonunion men does not result In the ontluvnk nutleipnted In many quarters. Strike leaders busy advising men to refrain from violence aud men n crept the advice. Some freight moved; small amount compared with normal times. Horseshoers and freight hand lers, join the ranks of the strik ers. Freight package handlers also quit when nouulon drivers start work. The restaurant men are still at sea and sny they have not de cided when or how they will re open their places. The coal dealers Intimate they will follow the lead of the trans fer companies and apply for an Injunction. houses would go out, and fifty men departed from the Vnlon Pacific bouse and about tho same number from the B. & M., leaving, one-fourth the regular force at work. As a matter of fact nearly every union freight handler in the railway sheds quit work last night and did not show up this mornln? In pusuance to orders from the officers of the local union of Longshoremen. As the business haa been growing less at the freight houses since the strike aet In tha union men have been dropped by the managers, with a view of having only non union men in the housea when the strike began. Consequently this morning there waa not anything Ilka the full force of union men at work. Every horeeshoer In the city quit work at noon on a strike In sympathy with the teamsters. The total number of men of this craft in the union Is about seventy-live. At varloua houses In the wholesale dl. trlct the package freight handlers declined to work aa soon aa nonunion teamsters un loaded goods or took them from the places where they worked. An fstlmate of the number that went out can not be made, as it la growing constantly. Jarallne am A Johnaon aa Drivers. The transportation firms that nought to break the strike are the Omaha Mer chants Express and Transfer company, tha Johnson Brothers Transfer company and the Bnsch concern.
