mspersion of several suspicious gatherings, gave color to the reports. The officials have been active in the matter, but are not inclined to think an uprising will be attempted. One report is that the Filipino junta is endeavoring to incite an outbreak in order to show the civil commission that the insurrection is still alive. The towns of Holongus and Maalin, an the island of Leyte, have been occupied by troops of the Forty-third Volunteer infantry. The insurgents opposed the landing of the Americans and sustained heavy losses.

The Americans had three casualties. Convention Unanimously Selects Towne After a Day of Contention Over the Advisability of Such Action Delegates Go Wild Over Bryan The Platform.

The debate largely hineed on the iiroiwsitiou tnat the govern ment should erect an armor plant of its own. Ao action was taken on the prop osition. House Considered the contested case of Pearson vs. Crawford from the Xinth Xorth Carolina district.

Thursday, May lO. Fresldent Kruger Says lie Will Continue the War All Sorts and Conditions of Men Commandeered at Fretoria Quar- i rel Between the Allies. London', May 14. "The war is practically over, "says the Daily Chronicle's Krooustadt correspondent, and in less definite terms this is the view to be gathered from all the correspondents. They picture the Boers as utterly demoralized and disheartened by Lord Roberts' unexpectedly rapid advance and by his facile turning of the carefully prepared positions of the Boers.

There was practically no fighting and there are no further details to give respecting the occupation of Krooustadt. The correspondent of the Daily Telegraph, says "The Union Jack was hoisted in the market place by Mrs. Lockhead, the American wife of a Scotchman. Most of the horses of the Beers are in a "Wretched condition, but President Kru-per declares he will continue the war. It appears that the Boers at Krooustadt had been reinforced by 3,000 men from Natal last Friday, and that altogether 5,000, with a number of guns, trekked from Kroonstadt on the approach of Lord Roberts.

The Boors made an ineffectual stand at Boschrand, and had elaborate intrenchments in front of Krooustadt, which offered great facilities for a rear guard action. Their only anxiety, however, appears to have Siorx Falls, May 11. The national Populist convention concluded its work at 1 o'clock this morning and adjourned sine die after nominating the Hon. W. J.

Bryan for president and the Hon. Charles A. Towne of Minnesota for vice president. The nomination of Towne was only accomplished after a struggle of several hours duration in which an effort was made to have the question of nomination of a vice presidential candidate referred to a committee to confer with the Democratic and Silver Be-publicau parties in their national conventions. A motion to this effect was defeated by a vote of 268 to 492.

Both candidates were nominated by acclamation, but before the result was reached various candidates were placed in nomination and their names successively withdrawn. Both nominations were accomplished amid scenes of enthusiasm. While the day was full of events in the national Populist convention, it began rather inauspiciously for the consummation of its work. There were three sessions during the day. The first of these was barren of results and the afternoon session was well under Senate Case involving the seat of Clark (Mon.) was postponed until next Tuesday.

Chandler gave notice that at that time he would insist that the case be continuously considered to the exclusion of all other business. Sewell announced, that he should object to that. Gallinger address 5 i INHERITANCE TAX DECISION. Supreme Conrt Holds That It Applies Only to Legacies. Washington, May 15.

The supreme court of the United States annouueed opinions in the case arising under the inheritance tax provision of the war revenue act and also in a case involving the applicability of the state inheritance tax law of New York to estates composed of government bonds. There were five decisions under the federal law and one under the state law, but two of the former class applied, as did one of the latter class, to the taxation of government bonds. The court held that neither under the state nor the national enactment were national bonds exempt from taxation. The validity of the general federal law was affirmed, but ic was held to be purely applicable to legacies and not to the entire estates of deceased persons, the court holding that the tax is on the passing of legacies of distributive shares of personalty with a progressive rate on each determined by the sum of each of such legacies or distributive shares." ed the senate at length on this resolution, declarinr that "the present phenomenal prosperity of th country is due to the policy tf protection as embodied in the Dinglev tariff law." Joint resolution con Auditors Reeves and Reynolds Detained in Their Rooms Under Guard Postmaster Thompson Suspended Bristow Ordered to Cuba to Take Charge Havana, May 15. The extent of the postal frauds is far greater than originally expected.

Besides taking in the postal department the frauds seem to fnclnde the local office at Havana and various other offices throughout the island, and also to have extended to outside points which have been used for the sale of some of the old issue of stamps that were ordered destroyed. The result of the investigation at the local postofnee is the suspension of Postmaster Thompson, who was installed in April of last year. As many as six others have been placed under the closest supervision and they will be arrested as soon as their services can be spared. As a matter of fact if they were all to be suddenly relieved of duty it would not be possible to carry on the postal department of Havana. Messrs.

Reeves and Reynolds, the auditors of the postal department, are still under arrest at their own rooms, in charge of detectives. It appears that the frauds ramified in almost every possible direction; even the rented boxes have been made a source of illegitimate gain. Every additional revelation increases the amazement of the Americans here. The Cubans seem to be immensely pleased. They declare that the Americans can no longer boast in Cuba of their superior honesty when in government employ.

Bristow Ordered to Cuba. Washington, May 15. -The postmaster general, after a protracted interview with the president, yesterday, announced that Joseph L. Bristow, fourth assistant postmaster general, will proceed to Havana next Wednesday to take charge of postal affairs of the island. The postmaster general declined to say whether or not Director General of Posts Rathboue would be suspended.

Further than the announcement that Mr. Bristow would go to Havana, the postmaster general said there were no new developments in the situation. He said that there had not been an intimation that there had been any wrongdoing in the postal affairs of either the Philippines or Porto Rico. cerning certain Chippewa Indian reserva tions in Minnesota, the project being to preserve forests oa tho reservations as a "Dewejr's candidacy does not concern me."

Chicago Police Make Important Capture. Chicago, May 12. Facing a shower of bullets while chasing supposedly petty thieves for nearly a mile yesterday Officer Frank J. McNamara effected an important capture. The men arrested are noted ex-convicts and since their release from prison have been conducting wholesale burglaries in Des Moines and South Omaha, the loot aggregating 10,000 in value.

They are Jim Demmett and George Thompson, both colored. They confessed to a series of 12 burglaries they had committed in Iowa between May 3 and 7. They further told the police that there is a third member of their gang here and detectives are on his trail. tee's proposition was a oout to be voted upon a filibuster was organized, the quorum of the senate was broken and tho question is still the air. During the debate Chandler delivered a sensational speech, in which he charged that the gov assistant secretary of the interior as successor to Webster Davis, is a West Virginian by birth, although he has been a resident of the District of Columbia for the last 30 years.

His promotion came to him quite unexpectedly, for, although he has served in the various departments long and faithfully, it is not often that such long jumps are made. The new assistant secretary of the interior is C0 years old. He was educated at Washington and Jefferson college and served in the Union army during the civil war.

Spooner and Hale made notable speeches deprecating the war talk Friday by Ixidge. Xeither our Money's Worth the senator from Wisconsin nor tho senator from jSIaine was fearful that we presented, and while waiting on them the convention gave attention to a number of addresses. One of these was by Mrs. Eva McDonald Valesh, a District of Columbia delegate, who reviewed the labor troubles in Idaho.

Contrary to expectations, the resolutions aroused no debate, and with these once adopted the convention found itself suddenly and apparently unexpectedly face to face with the nomination of candidates. Bryan's nomination was made by acclamation, and was accomplished with expedition and tact. There were not to exceed half a dozen speeches in Bryan's behalf. All these were brief and pointed and full of praise for the candidate. The speakers were led off by Senator Allen, of Bryan's own state, and he was followed by General "Weaver of Iowa, ex-Congressman Jerry Simpson of Kansas, "Cyclone" Davis of Texas, Senator Butler of North Carolina and one or two others.

Each mention of Bryan aroused enthusiasm and when there was a call to rise in support of a proposition to make his nomination unanimous, not only did every delegate arise in his seat, but each rose with a shout and a hurrah and with a waving of hands. The scene was animated and a hearty one, but it was not prolonged and after a uinute or two of demonstration the delegates sank back into their seats. Thus was Bryan again made a candidate for the presidency and thus was his campaign of 1900 inaugurated. The exciting event of the convention was reached when ex-Congressman Kelly of South Dakota, becoming excited, denounced the occupant of the chair as a "bunco steerer." To this Chairman Patterson responded spiritedly. There were cries of "put him out," and a number of delegates gathered about Kelly.

Quiet was, however, soon restored and the convention proceeded as if nothing unusual had occurred. BARKER AND DONNELLY. Mid-Road PopuIUts Nominate Pennsyl-vanian for President.

1 ff l-W Si 'WW w1' fa i iffis" "Ji WM portant developments in the street car strike situation yesterday. At a conference held between the officials of the Suburban Railway company and the officials of the employes on that road an amicable adjustment was effected and the men will return to work today. On just what basis the strike was settled could not be learned, bnt it can be positively stated that the union received full recognition. In many quarters it is figured, that the settlement of the strike on the Suburban presages an adjustment of the difficulties between the Transit company and its 3,600 striking employes in the near future. In fact, it was learned that at a conference held yesterday of the officials of the Transit company, the chairman of the employes' grievance committee and some of the members of the citizens' committee matters were adjusting themselves nicely for a settlement of the difficulty, when a member of the citizens committee injected into the proceedings a proposition of such a character that the discussion was brought to a close with matters no nearer a settlement than had heretofore existed.

It is thought, however, that a future meeting of the same parties will result in determining a basis for a settlement of the strike. The Suburbau company had no difficulty in maintaining a thorough running schedule and riotous demonstrations on that line were conspicuous by their absence. On the -Transit company's system there were a number of demonstrations, more noisy than otherwise. In one instance the police were obliged to charge on a crowd of strike sympathizers to disperse it and in a number of instances used the flat side of their sabers in accomplishing their purpose. No casualties of a serious nature were reported.

Strikers Parade at Kansas City. Kansas City, May 15. The street 1 Teizel's Shoes Are Good Shoes Teitzel, been to get away safely with all their guns and convoys, which again they have successfnly accomplished. The few stores they were unable to carry away they burned. President Steyu is represented as having been frantic with rage and as having kicked and cuffed the burghers after vainly imploring them to continue the fight.

Lord Roberts, after a march which is regarded as being worthy of being ranked with his famous march to Kandahar, has thus covered another stage of his campaign, a stage which, although successful and without the mistakes and misfortunes that characterized the earlier stages, leaves the Boer forces quite intact, not having lost a gun and having lost very few men. Experience has taught the critics to be chary of accepting reports of Boer demoralization. The Times says: "The signs point to military breakdown on the part of the Boers, but after the experience of the past we cannot accept the reports of demoralization without reserve. The game of war must be strictly played out to the end." The Standard publishes the following from Durban dated Sunday: "There are persistent rumors here of heavy fighting in Natal. A Red Cross train left last night for the north." Nothing definite has been heard about the expected relief of Marking.

The Cape Town correspondents continue to wire that relief is imminent, fixing Tuesday or Wednesday as probable dates. Inquirers at the war office are told that the news of the relief will be made public immediately on its receipt. The latest supposition concerning General Hunter is that possibly he is marching up the north bank of the Vaal with a force sufficient, in co-operation with Lord Roberts, to render Boer defense of the Vaal frontier impracticable. East of Bloemfontein General Bundle is advancing toward Ladybrand. His troops and those of General Brabant are stretched over a distance of 30 miles.

The Boers are described as quite disorganized and are retreating northward. President Steyn's lieutenants are trying to rally them. The same stories of disintegration come from nearly every point where the English correspondents are. Mr. Hol-lowell.

formerly a correspondent at Mafekiug, who was put over the Transvaal border, telegraphing from Lou-reuzo Marquez Monday, says: "Judging from talks I have had with the Boers the end of the war will come in a month or six weeks. Mr. Scein-kamp, chairman of the second raad, who travelled with me, said that if the burghers were pressed from Pretoria they would retire to the district of the Leydenburg mountains which had already been provisioned." Another dispatch to the Associated Press, dated Stoue Hill, Monday, says: "After four days' march eastward, at the foot of the Biggarsberg ridges, in the direction of Helpmaakar, which was occupied by the federals, the second brigade, Sunday, led the attack. Dundonald's cavalry broke the Boers' center and Bethune's Horse advanced on their extreme right. In the direction of Pomeroy a small party of burghers occupied a ridge overlooking Helpmaakar, but they did not wait for the assault." Boer Again Attack Mafekinjf.

Pretoria, May 12. A war bulletin has been Issued here announcing that the British are advancing against the federals at Helpmakaar and Tonder's Nek. The burghers this morning attacked Mafeking. The telegraphist at Malopo says that a heavy rifle and cannon fire was heard before 6 o'clock today and that the "Kaffir location" was in flames within an hour and was totally destroyed. At 10 o'clock, he adds, everything was quiet.

Now that the League of American Wheelmen has abolished its racing department every attention will be given the other branches of work. The most important of these is the highway improvement department, to which is intrusted the work in behalf of the good roads movement. The league has made rapid strides in this movement, particularly during the past year, but the racing question has reflected upon this as upon all other departments, the belief being disseminated that none of the branches of league work could be made effective until the racing question was settled. The most important work accomplished last year was the holding of many good roads conventions in various states, the introduction of highway improvement measures in many of the state legislatures and the evolution of the movement to national proportions, as was evidenced by the bill introduced in congress calling for an appropriation of $3,000,000. Constitutional amendments were carried in Michigan and Minnesota, and a large amount of education on the subject was circulated by the league.

All of this work will be continued during the present year, but upon a much larger scale than heretofore. IQ fact, this will be one of the most important agitations of the year aside from the presidential elections. FKANK L. CA1IPEEIX. tendent of public schools of Marlboro, where he also studied law.

He was transferred to the pension office and after serving as an examiner two years and as a member of the board of review four years was further promoted to the board of pension appeals in the secretary's office, where he remained two years. There he manifested such exceptional legal attainments that he was made an assistant attorney in the office of the assistant attorney general for the interior department, which position he has held for 19 years, having by promotions become first assistant attorney, at a compensation of $2,750.

Try it; Cincinnati, May 11. Above is the ticket placed in the field yesterday by the middle-of-the-road Populist party.

For a time during yesterday's session of the convention it appeared as if nothing could prevent a complete disruption of the plans so carefully wrought out by the handful of men who separated themselves on Feb. 19 last at Lincoln, from the fusionist element of the party. Since Tuesday a steady current against the cut and dried choice of Barker and Donnelly had almost destroyed the foundation on which that ticket stood. Former Congressman Howard of Alabama had suddenly become the idol of many delegates, and he clinched his claim through his eloquent address in assuming the chairmanship of the convention on "Wednesday. Yesterday, as the time drew near for nominations, the Barker followers threatened to bolt the convention should their leader be turned down.

Howard took the only course for the restoration of harmony. He announced that he had no ambition to lead the ticket and withdrew his name. Nevertheless, when the roll caH completed on the first ballot, Howard was at the top of the column, only a few short of the nomination, as follows: Howard, 311; Barker, 303; Donnelly, 70; Norton, 1. On the second ballot Howard's plainly statsd desire for harmony took effect and the 70 votes which went to Donnelly on the first roll call were cast for Barker of Pennsylvania and gave him the requisite majority over all. The generous Howard moved to make the selection of Barker unanimous, which was done.
