Something About the Boer Casualties Since March 1. LONDON, Apr! 7. Lord Kitchener's dispatch to the war office today states that the British columns report 17 Boers killed, six wounded, 107 prison ers and 31 surrendered . since March 31. The Boer casualties in the engage ments on March 31 and April 1 at the Harts river and Boschman's kop are not included in these figures. At the lowest they are counted as 30 killed and 80 wounded. Commandant Edmasmus was killed on April 3, TOWN IS AROUSED OVER A MARRIAGE Randolph, N. Y., Trains the Cannon on the Home of an Offending Undertaker. uukki, w,, April 7. Randolph, a town east of here on the Erie railroad, is in great excitement tonight. The cause of disturbance is the divorce and remarriage of the town's only un dertaker. A few years ago Eugene C. Williams, the undertaker, and his wife came to Randolph where Williams soon had a flourishing business. Mrs. Williams was quiet and associated with church people. Affairs ran smoothly enough until Williams installed Jennie Flagg as housemaid. A year ago public sentiment became so strong against Williams' action that Miss Flagg left the household. Mrs. Williams also left Randolph for her former home. Yesterday Williams stepped from a train with Jennie Flagg and announced that they had been married in Ohio after he had secured a divorce from his former wife. This announcement threw the vil lage folks into a frenzy. A cannon was brought from an adjoining village and trained on the house by some of the mob, while others set a pot of tar boiling. Whistles were blown, bells rung and guns were discharged. Wil liams was told to come, forth quietly or his home would be ' bombarded. Cool counsel prevailed and the mob finally dispersed. Mrs. Williams had an attack of hysterics which lasted through the night. Next day she left the village and has not been seen since. , Two special policemen are guarding the Williams home. Will iams has disposed of his business and wll leave at once. PADEREWSKI PLEADS FOR A MURDERER It Is Very Likely that Governor Odell Will Refuse the Great. Pianist's Request. ALBANY, April 7. Paderewski ap peared in a new role in this city to day. He and his wife appeared before Governor Odell this afternoon, and the great pianist requested that a Pole now serving a life sentence for mur der be pardoned. Their Interview was a brief one and it will probably be one or the few matters th&t Paderewski wui De denied in this country. The man in whose behalf the Paderewskis have interested themselves is Anton werner, a native of Poland, and he is serving a life sentence for having kill ea a countryman, Ned Fisher, in 1888. .raaerewsKi was ushered into the presence of the governor and handed him Washington letters 'of lntroduc tion from Secretary Cortelyou and As sistant Secretary of State Hill. Mrs Paderewski was also presented and Ehe was apparently more interested in the matter than her husband, for she did the greater part of the plead ing ror Werner's liberty. How the Paderewskis became inter ested in him ls not known, but they pleaded earnestly and eloquently with the governor that he be restored to liberty. As a concluding argument for the pardon the pianist said: "If you win pardon him I will personally nav his expenses to Europe and he will never trouble you again in this coun try." This, however, did not have the desired effect, for the Supreme court justice and district attorney who tried the case are opposed to Werner beine pardoned. Governor Odell has made it a practice never to pardon a convict unless the Judge who presided and tne district attorney who prosecuted are in favor of s - rantlna - a mrrtnn STRIKE IS 8TILL ON. Miners Reject the Concessions Offered by L. W. Robinson. ALTOONA, Pa., April 7. After a stormy conference lasting the entire day, delegates appointed by the 10, - 000 striking miners to confer with Lucien W. Robinson, of the Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburg field, left the conference tonight absolutely refusing to accept the concessions offered by Robinson. Thev declnr thpv will stand out for their entire demands or no settlement. This places the strike situation back where It vh April l, when it was declared. The miners say that Robinson's proffers give them little advantage. The only effect of today's conference was to make the miners more determined in their stand against doing mules' work.

E House Passed the Bill Yesterday Without Division After Adopting Stringent Amendments. THE WAR.TAX BEPEAL BILL WASHINGTON, April 7. The House took up the Chinese exclusion bill this morning immediately after reading the journal." A number of amendments offered bv Representative Clark j (Dem.), Coombs (Rep., Cal.), and others intended to perfect the bill were offer ed and adopted. Other amendments of a more stringent character offered by Representative Napen (Dem - , Mass.), and others, were rejected. An amendment offered . by Mr. Clark (Dem., Mo.), was adopted, requiring each Chinese in the insular possessions of the United States to secure a certificate of registration with his photograph attached within twelve months, a duplicate to be filed with the treasury department. Mr. Clark offered an amendment to prohibit ves sels carrying the American flag from employing Chinese sailors not entitled to entry into the United States. Mr, Perkins opposed the amendment as being out of order and not germane to the bill Mr. Kahn.(Rep Cal.), offered a sub stitute for the Clark amendment. The committee rose to permit the House to consider the conference re - port on the bill to repeal the war taxes and it was agreed to. Opposing the Kahn amendment, Mr, Cannon (Rep., 111.), made one of his characteristic speeches and incidental ly foreshadowed the defeat of the ship subsidy bill The amendment under consideration was agreed to 100 to 74. It reads: ,"And it shall be unlawful for any vessel holding an American register to have or to employ in its crew any Chinese, person not entitled to admis sion to the United States, or into the portion of the territory of the United States to which such vessel is bound, and any violation of this provision shall be punishable by a fine not ex ceeding $2,000: A further amendment was adopted defining the terms Chinese and Chinese persons used in the bill, to mean "all persons who are Chinese either by birth or descent, as well those of mixed blood as those of the full blood, as well male as female. This concluded the reading of the bill. Mr. Clark (Dem., Mo.), said that every amendment which had been adopted was contained In the Demo cratic minority substitute. Having thus secured everything that was de sirable, he said, he would not press the substitute. The committee rose, the bill was re ported to the House, the amendments agreed to in gross, and the bill passed without a division, Under suspension of the rules, after an hour's filibustering against it, the Senate bill was passed authorizing the extension of the charters of national banks, which will expire in 1902 and 190335 banks with $325,000 capital In 1903, and 245 banks with $60,583,300 capital in 1903, At 5; 50 the House adjourned until tomorrow. Washington, April .7. In the Senate this morning Mr. Aldrich (Rep., R. I.) presented the conference report on the bill to reDeal war revpnim tnvntlnn Mr. Jones (Dem., Ark.) expressed his dissatisfaction with the report He believed that the tax on bucket shop transactions ought to be retained and extended, Mr. Aldrich explained and defended the conference report. The bill, he said, reduced taxes to the amount of 173,000. The two houses were In ac cord In everything except as to this one item. Every senator, he said, would understand that the bill could not be allowed to fail on account of a difference on the bucket shop ques tion. The conference , report on the war tax repeal bill was adopted by a vote of 36 to 20. It now goes to the House for action, The Chinese exclusion bill was taken up and Mr. Simmons (Dem., N. C.) ad dressed the Senate. He said that he should vote for the bill, but reluctant ly, because he was not altogether sat isfied that the best interests of the country, considered as a whole, re quirea its passage. He should vote ror it, reluctantly, more especially because the cotton manufacturers of his state and of the south generally were appealing to Congress and protesting against its passage, fearing retaliatory action, At the close of Mr, Simmons' speech the reading of the bill was resumed where It has been left off on Satur day and the amendments reported by the committee on immigration were acted upon, Mr. Cullom having post - nnn.j till - 1.1. , nniinn Bi'c - " P - position. At 5:30 the reading having been completed the Senate adjuorned until tomorrow. ATTENDANT ARRESTED. Norristown Hospital Attache Accused of Injuring Patient. NORRISTOWN, Pa., April 7.

A Move to Head Them Off at Cleveland, Ohio. CLEVELAND, April 7. Mayor Tom L. Johnson's slumbers were disturbed at 6 a. m. today by Sheriff Harry, who served on him a notice of the granting of a temporary restraining order by Judge Bissette against the city, the board of control, John B. Hoefgen and the Peoples Street Railway company, to prevent the beginning of work on the proposed three - cent fare street - railway. The' order was' granted by Judge Bissette on Sunday and will be effective until the further order of court. The suit was filed on behalf of William M. Reynolds, who gave a bond for $2,500. The ground on which the order was asked for and granted was that the ordinance granting Hoefgen the privilege was illegal and was an abuse of the corporate powers of the city. RICHTER DID NOT DIE FROM TORTURE Lieutenant Sinclair Was Tried for the Offense and Acquited, General Chaffee Reports. WASHINGTON, April 7. The order of the war department to General Chaffee to investigate the case of Private Edward C. Richter, of the Twenty - eighth infantry, who, it was alleged, had been tortured to death in the Philippines, brought a telegram from General Chaffee today, in which he said that Lieutenant Sinclair, of the Twenty - eighth, had . been tried for causing Richter's death and acquitted. General Chaffee said that the case was investigated at the time of Richter's death and the papers forwarded to the war ' department. The story that Richter had met his death through torture was printed in a Manila paper on February 13. It was alleged that Richter, who had been locked in a guard house, became drunk on smuggled whiskey, and having caused a disturbance was brought before Lieutenant Sinclair, who ordered that ice water be poured on his face until he became sober.. It was stated by the paper that 25 gallons of ice water were used in this process and that Richter had died in consequence. Richter was from Syracuse, N. Y., where his mother resides. PATRICK SENTENCED TO DIE ON MAY 5 The Appeal to be Made to the Higher Court, However, Will Act As a Stay. NEW YORK, April 7. Albert T. Patrick, who was convicted on March 26 of the murder of William Rice, was sentenced today by Recorder Goff to be put to death in the electric chair at Sing Sing prison during the week beginning May 5. Rice died in this city on September 23, 1900. An ap peal to be made to the Court of Ap - peala by Patrick's counsel will act as a stay of execution pending a decision by the higher court - The Recorder, in pronouncing sentence, made no com ment on the jury's verdict. To the customary question as whether the defendant had anything to say why judgment should not be pronounced, Mr. House, Patrick's chief counsel, said he desired to make motion for a new trial because the verdict was contrary to law, because it was clearly against the evidence. because it was against the weight of evidence, because the court erred in denying the defendant's motion to ad vise the Jury to acquit, because the court admitted illegal and Improper evidence against the defendant's ob jection, because the court excluded le gal evidence offered by the defendant's counsel, because the court misdirected the jury in matters of law, because the court refused to direct the prosecution to elect upon which count of the in dictment it would submit the question of the guilt or innocence of the de fendant, and because it did not ap pear from the record of the verdict of what crime the defendant had been found guilty. The recorder denied the motion for a nev trial. Mr. House took an ex ception and moved for an arrest of judgment. This was denied, and sent ence was then pronounced by the re corder.

E One is Being Maintained by British Government Forty Miles From St. Joseph, Missouri MULETEEES ARE MISUSEIH ST. JOSEPH, Mo., April 7. Near Lathrop, less than 40 miles from this city, the British government is maintaining a morse, mule and forage sup - , ply depot for its army in South Africa. Here are stationed ten officers of the British army and 24 private soldiers. With these are employed over 100 civilians to care for the stock. The number of horses and mules now on hand at Lathrop is 5,000. From May 9, 1901, to February 5, 1902, 55, - 852 horses and 10,949 mules passed through Lathrop, destined for South Africa. The largest number received in one day was, 72 cars. Lieutenant General Sir Richard Campbell Stewart arrived at Lathrop today on a tour of inspection. He is accompanied by Colonel Holland, of the British artillery service. They were sent to this country to investi gate charges recently made in the House of Commons that the money of the English government is being squandered by the agents of its purchasing department in this and other countries. There are six barns at Lathrop fitted up for the care of horses and mules. They are owned by the Gey ton & Harrington Mule company, who also own 7,400 acres' of land at that point. Washington will be asked to investigate this foreign military supply company, . New Orleans, April 7. William M. Brown, an engineer who went to South Africa to investigate the treatment of the men who shipped for that country as muleteers, says that he is certain that the English are using Chalmette as a base of supplies and that they are maintaining a recruiting station there. "This," he says, "has been going on for the last eighteen months, and it will be surprising to learn the number of men who have shipped from this port with a signed contract for enlistment in the British ranks upon their arrival in some South African port." Mr. Brown left' New Orleans in March, 1899, on the steamship Devona, and arrived in Cape Town in April, He. did not go as a muleter, and had plenty of time to study conditions for himself. . There . were 65 men who signed as muleters; On the Devona was Lieutenant Stone, ostensibly in cnarge or tne loading of the mules. but in reality an English recruiting omcer. un tne way down the river he caiiea tne men and told them that they .would not be allowed to go on shore after the ship landed unless they were enlisted as soldiers for the army. Many complained at this treat ment, but were told that if they at tempted to get on shore without be mg enlisted they would be arrested and put in prison. There was nothing to ao Dut obey, and out of the 65 muleters 41 of the number had signed as enlisted soldiers for the British army before they hadS - eached the mouth of the Mississippi river. Upon ' their arrival in CaDe Town their names were called out by the omcer wno had enlisted them in New Orleans, and as each name was called the man answering it was taken charge of by . another officer and taken to tne detail camp at Green Point, situated about three miles from Cape Town on the coast. This is the last Heard of the 41 men who enlisted. Mr. Brown says that on the Drayson urange, wnich sailed from New Or leans in Feb. 30, of the 65 muleters signed to enlist In the British army Deiore tne vessel had left New Or leans and that the foreman offered to enlist him it he would serve. GEN SMITH'S ORDERS TO MAJOR WALLER Former Testifies That no Special Order Concerning Captured Natives Had Been Given. MANILA, April 7. General Smith, military commander In Samar and Leyte, testified today before the mixed courtmartial, which is engaged in trv - Ing Major Waller and Lieutenant Day on tne cnarge of executing natives without warrant. General smith praised the work of the marines, but his evidence Indicated that Major Wal ler was governed only by the rules of war, particularly order 100. He had given Major Waller no special order concerning captured natives. He did not see Major Waller's order. If he had he would have altered tt. omitting the appeal to the marines to avenge their comrades who were massacred at Balanglga, the operations in which disaster, General Smith said, were according to the rules of wop with the exception of the mutilation of the dead. He would also have changed the instruction to punish treachery with death to an order to punish those guilty of treachery according to the summary laws nrp - scribed in order 100. General Smith added that h ha misunderstood the telegram he had received regarding the execution of natives and was not aware of the facts until General Chaffee, while making a tour of Samar, told him that he had been doing promiscuous killing. General Smith denied this, whereupon Generl Chaffee told him of the trouble in Basey. The cholera returns show 135 deaths from the disease.

FOR SUPPLY CAMP NEGROES LEAVE LA WTO N. Town Quieter Than it Has Been for Some Days. WICHITA, Kan., April 7. Lawton ls quieter today than it has been since the race: war commenced. About 50 negroes left town this morning of their own accord and half that number were driven out by whites. Considerable ill feeling was caused against the negroes today when - it became known that they had held up and robbed several farmers comine Into Lawton. An at - tempt was ,nade rwy to an unknown negro' in the south part of the town, but he was soon surrounded by whites who disfavored violence and allowed him to return to his side of the town.

The third and last - week of the Washington Jockey club's meeting was ushered in this afternoon with clear weather, a large crowd and excellent racing, but the backers of favorites did not fare well as only two favorites, both of which were at odds on, were winners. Only six of the 15 carded ran in the third event, with Alpaca favorite, but the second choice, Handicapper, led all the way and beat her out a length. Father Bill Daly, owner of Handi capper, was fined $300 by the stewards for intimidation. It seems that he went to W. T. McGrath, owner of Lamp O'Lee, and J. E. Lane, All Saints' owner, and informed them he would bid them up if they won, and if they ran and were beaten he would claim one of them. This scared the owners so that they, scratched their horses and complained to the stewards who had Daly in the stand before the race and '. later in the afternoon im posed the fine. Father Bill Daly is trying to make a match between his colt, Himself, and John D. Crimins, jr.'s, Intrusive, who beat Himself a head on Saturday. Daly approached Trainer Garrick this morning and wanted to make a match for $200 a side if the association would add $500. Then Daly raised it to $500 a side, but Garrick would not make the match unless it was $1,000 a side. There is good reason for believing that the two will meet either here or at Aqueduct. MADE A SCREEN OF BOER WOMEN General Delarey Say the British Took Refuge Behind the Burghers' Wives and Daughters. AMSTERDAM, April 7. Former President Kruger has received from General Delarey, the Boer leader who recently captured Lord Methuen, harrowing stories of cruelties perpetrated by the British. The stories are supported by affidavits. General Delarey says Boer women were placed as a human screen around the British as a protection against his attacks. He declared that several Boer women have already been wantonly killed. Delarey's own wife, according to his reports, has been persecuted by General Lord Methuen's orders for the past twelve months, and is now wandering about the veldt with her six children. Delarey's mother, 83 years of age, he asserts, has been driven from Klerksdorp, after being robbed of all her cattle and her house burned. The Boer general enumerates specific cases of defenceless women who were shot, and speaks of the cold - blooded murder1 of prisoners. London, April 7. The Dailv Mall prints a note warning its readers against taking seriously the allegations oi cruelty against the British army, which previous experience, it savs. hn shown is generally exaggerated when the charges are not baseless. Nevertheless, the paper gives DrominenrA tn General Delarey's charges, and it adds tnat us correspondent assures it that the report is unquestionably an authen tic document from General Dein r ii a ... . J 1 yjn me otner nana it has been repeat eoiy stated that General Delarey's magnanimity to General Methuen prompted by the latter's kindness to General Delarey's wife and family, for twucu general weiarey thanked nn. eral Methuen while the latter was a pnsuner.

With Emphasis That He was ; a Philanthrophist. SO SUCH FOOLISH FELLOW NEW YORK, April 7. A clerical looking man called Andrew Carnegiu a philanthropist to his face in the Hotel St. Denis this evening in the presence of a few hundred people attending the dinner of the Society of American authors. Anyone remembering Mr. Carnegie's definition of a philanthropist "A man with more money than brains" might have expected something to happen, and it did, Mr. Carnegie repelled tho attack as aggressively as though it had been an assault and battery upon his person. Mr. Carnegie was the guest of honor at the dinner, and he had just taken his seat after a short after dinner speech, when the man in the clerioal clothes arose and, addressing Rastws S. Ransom, president of the societj, asked permission to make a requea' of Mr. Carnegie: "My name is Crawford - Frost, ol Baltimore," he said; "I want to offer Mr. Carnegie, the great philanthropist, an invention " Mr. Carnegie, rising In his place at the table nnd speaking with the greatest emphasis, he said: "I will answer the gentleman by telling him that he is making a mistake in calling me r philanthropist. I reject the name. I am no such foolish fellow." What more Mr. Carnegie might have said was lost in the next assault, of Crawford - Frost, who did not proposo to lose his chance of 'addressing Mr.' - ' Carnegie directly from his place, half way back the room. He said, speaking louder than ever: "I offer you ?.", - 000,000; will you take it? I offer you an invention whereby I can think a thought and have it automatically recorded on paper." .Finally he was persuaded to leave. To reporters he said that he was the Rev. William Albert Crawford - Frost, rector of the Protestant Episcopal church of the Holy Comforter of. Baltimore, and that he was staying at the Waldorf Astoria. Baltimore, Md., April 7. The Rev. Crawford - Frost is pastor of one of tha - most influential Protestant Episcopal congregations in Baltimore. His sermons and sayings, while bordering on the sensational, have attracted considerable attention in this city to which he is a new comer. Recently he ridiculed Mr. Carnegie's gifts, saying that the people needed employment and not books. He is well thought of in Baltimore.
