BUEGHEES GEEATLT ALARMED, Hniim.v U Not Secore a Wa ,.,, supposed Supplies May Be Cut Off by the Matabele Ammunition is ,dfl nd Thl Will Probably Arrive Toe Ia' or se""ce' CiFE Town, April 15. News has huii received here that the natives re prepiiniig to rise aiong me j.raiw--..i lmnler. A rising in northern Transvaal itself is also said to be immi BeI,t There is something or a panic manifest among t he burghers, who have sppealed foruruis with which to protect themselves. The threatened spread of the disturb ance aloug the Transvaal border makes the situation ut Buluwuyo ana in jna- tabele much more serious. J. he authon h have felt that Bnluwayo was rea sonably safe if the food supply should hold out, but the danger has been thut the JIatabele would stop the wagon roads through the Matoppo hills and to the south ana inus prevent supplies from Renin tlirough from Mafekiug. It is believed that the white settlers mattered through Matubeleland are in places of safety' by this time in Bulnwayo or Uwelo and the missionaries do not feel tliat iney run any ris. lrum ine natives, to whom they are known, though there might be danger from stnuiije wandering bands. Only a part of the 600 reinforcements deeRued for Bulnwayo have been dispatched from Mafeking, the nearest mint available for that purpose. It taken four weeks' hard traveling by ox wapms to reach Bulnwayo from there and it is sail tuat tne journey can not be done in that time except with very light loads. , Transportation of supplies of ammu union, which are needed at this time in Matabeleland, must therefore be slow and the uew developments in the situ ation threaten to cut off or at least to interrupt communication between Bn- lnwayo and the only source to which it can look for a renewal of its supplies. It has been discovered that some of the Matabeles who are employed as servants at rsuluwayo have been acting as spies and convoying information of the movements of expeditions to their mends in outlying districts. Clue of these traitorous natives was shot TueS' day. AMENDED BILL SATISFACTORY. Archbishop Laugevin Asks the Houte of Commons to Pan.

Where a red light is displayed ou the line of an American railroad it means that there is danger ahead, and under tho regulations of most roads an engineer gutting this signal stops the train until either it is removed or another signal is displayed, or until the signal is given by tho train dispatcher to proceed. . The green signal means caution, Tho white signal means all clear ahead. The objection to the use of white lights is g, double one first, that they are too common, and, second, that they are untrustworthy, for, as railroad men point out, if a rod lantern is broken tho light shown becomes a white one, and thus tho safety of tho train uud the passengers upon it may bo imperiled by the bxeukiug of a piece of glass. As railroad signals are not always distinguishable from ordinary lights, American engineers have come generally to disregard tho white signals entirely, aud to look out merely for a red signal, the absence of which they take to be proof of security. Those who are agitating for a change desire to see introduced here the English system, which differs from the American in this, thut the English use an amber light for caution and a green light for "all clear." Tho proposition is to use a green light on American railroads to indicate that all is well, while a red signal light will continue to be a murk of danger. It is estimated that a complete change of tho signal service on American railroads would cost $1,000,000, and most of the railroad corporations, now cur tailing expenses, do not give very hearty approval to the engineers' plan at this time.
