The Republican lenders in Congres
have gotten tired of the delay of the
Democrats in discussing the finanoial

aside because no Senator was read\* to
speak. Naturally the Republicans
have no call to defend it when it is not
attacked. Senator Aldrich has now
given notice that he will insist on the

Another Serious Ambush of the Amer*
Gen. Otis has cabled from Manila
that released Spanish prisoners, in-
cluding 74 officers. 1,000 enlisted men,
22 civilian officials, 21 wives and 35
children, were furnished transporta-
tion to Spain Jan. 25.
Advices received from Manila from
Gen. Kobbe's expedition indicates that
Sorsogon, Donsal, Bulan, Albany and
Eegaspi. in the southern peninsula of
Luzon and Virac, on Cantanduanes
Island, have been occupied. The only
resistance was at Legaspi, where 45
Filipinos were killed and 80,000 bales
of hemp were burned by shrapnel from
the gunboat Nashville.
Details of Gen. Schwan's campaign
in Laguna province which have reach-
ed Manila show that prior to the oc-
cupation of Santa Cruz the American
troops defeated a large force of in-
surgents in a strongly entrenched
position at San Diego, killing eighty-
two and wounding a large number.
The Filipinos, at last account, had
fled from all their strong positions,
and were being pursued by the Thir-
tieth Infantry and a body of cavalry.
A part of General MacArthur's
command has capturea and destroyed
an arsenal in the mountains northwest
Gen. Otis has reported that the
coast of Laguna de Bay and neighbor-

stricted traffic on the 27th, and that
the western coast of Panay is now
open to commerce.
Lieutenant Paul Devereux Stockley,
of the Twenty-first Infantry, has been
missing since the 12th inst., and is

The discussion of the anti-Boer resolu-
tion offered bv Mr. William H. Ferris at
the meeting of the Colored National Lea-
gue Tuesday eveninsr, revealed the exis-
tence of a strong feelintr against the Boers
on the part of many of those present.
While it is si well known fact that the
treatment of the native Africans by the
Boers has from the beginnine: been that of
extreme cruelty and brutality and that
their system of human slavery is as bad if
not worse in some of its features—as that
formerly existing in this country, yet,
with the exception of that particular sys-
tem of slavery, the treatment of the na-
tives by the English is and has always
been equally as brutal and atrocious as
that of the Boers. Let those who doubt,
this statement make a visit to South
Africa or ask some colored man who lias
lived there It is a notorious fact that
the pcor Kaffirs have a hard time at the
hands of the English people and their lot
is miserable and unhaDpy indeed.
That beins the case so iar as the colored
people are concerned, we think that
neither the Boars nor the English are de-
serving of their sympathy. As American
citizens, ignoring the. question of race,—if
that is possible in the discussion of this
question—having that inborn and heaven
inspired love of liberty and independence,
the sympathies of the colored people
would naturally lean toward the Boers in
their struggle aeainst a great and power-
ful nation seeking to deprive them of
their rights and liberties. But, the race
question rises up like Banquo's ehost, the
result being that the more intelligent and
deep thinking among our people who are
familiar with the relations of the Enerlish
and Boers with the African natives, have
no sympathy to bestow upon either side
iu the contest.
It is to be hoped that the resolutions re-
ferred to will lie very carefully considered
and discussed. The resolution should be
modified so as to conform to the actual
facts as we have stated tnem; as, if we
judge the sentimeut of the col> red people
aright, they uJe not willi .tr to go on
rtcord as sympathizing with E inland as
against the Boers, making the basis of
that sympathy the oppression of the Af-
rican nat>vt*s. "while England is fully as
guilty,—the oniy difference being that one
openly enslaves them wh'le the other ac-
complished the same purpose indirectly
under another system.
It would seem the part of wisdom and
oolicy on the part of th * League to amend
tbe resolution by striking out the words
"thick headed," etc.,— which are not wnr-
ranted or justified in the light of history
ncr by recent >ev. nts,— reflecting as they
u upon tne good judgment, tact, and dis
c tion which has always characterized
the League in its official public utterances
Tbe Colored Nation il League of Boston
is a strong, influential organization and
its work for the race has been and is of
great value. Whatever emauates from
tne League i.s widely leadaud discussed,
carriis great weight, and is considered to
a greai extent as expressive of the seuti-
ments of the colored people of ttiis sec-
tion. Therefore w e feel sure that the
following resolution now pending before
tlie Leagu , will be materially changed by
the more conservative among its members
before being adopted as a correct expres-
sion of the sentiments of the colored peo-
p eot New England:—
Resolved, that the Colored National
League declares that the colored people ot
the world ovt r should sympathize with
England iu this great struggle, and de-
clares that Englands victjry will mean
the advance of civilization and the crush-
ing of a diabolical, slave-holding republic,
au.l calls upon all lovers ot justice and
humanity tcr throw their moral support
against the thick-beaded, baid-hearted
and hypocritical Boers, and that tbe Col-
ored National League calls upon ail the se
who are opposed to human slavery and
the ruthless slaughtering of human be-
ings to denounce tne Boers who are trying

They Were Shot in an Encounter With
Police at Quincy, III.
Qtiincy, 111., police officers have
killed two expert safe blowers, sup-
posed to be from Chicago, and seri-
ously wounded another. The men are
believed to be the same who recently
operated in Galesburg, Freeport and
other Illinois cities, making a special-
ty of cracking safes in building and
lean association offices.
On January 6 the safe in the offices
of the Adams County Building and
Loan Association, in Quincy, was
blown open at the noon hour and cash
and securities amounting to $20,000
taken. Saturday, Jan. 27, three men
came to Moecker's Hotel, two of
them registering from Kansas City.
The proprietor suspected them and
warned the police, and when one of
the men went out he was shadowed
by Detective George Koch. The offi-
cer finally asked the suspect to go to
the station and explain himself. The
man drew a pistol and pointed it at
the officer's heart, but as he did so
Koch flashed his own pistol and fired
four shots. Three took effect and the
man fell dead.
Meanwhile officers had examined
the baggage of the suspected men,
and found it included burglars' tools,
skeleton keys, dynamite sticks and
nitro-glycerine. When the other two
men returned to the Moecker Hotel
at 2 o'clock in the morning they found
the hotel surrounded by officers. They
ran into the hotel saloon and loaded
their revolvers. Then issued a run-
ning fight in the hotel corridor. One
man reached the street, pursued by
Chief of Police John Ahern. He turn-
ed to fire, and as he did so Ahern sent
a bullet crashing through his skull.
He died in a few minutes. The third
man was shot on the stairs by Officer
Charnhorst and sank to the floor with
a broken hip. He refused to say who
his accomplices were.
William F. Miller, of Franklin syn-
dicate fame, has been located in Can-

accused of the murder of Melville
Lord, of Nassau, at Troy, New York,

Gen. Buller's operation at Spion
Kop has cost 912 men. so far officially
reported within ten days.
Applying to the 205 Spion Kop casu-
alties the rule of proportion, the losses
of officers indicate probably 500 casu-
alties yet to come. The total casual-
ties of the war, compiled from official
reports, are 9,523, nearly a division.
Of these 2,482 were killed, 4,811
wounded and the rest prisoners.
The aggregate British home troops
in South Africa number 116.000, the
Natalians 7,151, and Cape Colonials.
William T. Stead has addressed an
open letter to the Speaker of the
House of Commons, William Court
Gully, asking him to bring it to the
notice of the House. The writer says:
"The consequence of going to war
with a lie in our right hand is now
manifest even to the dullest under-
standing. The responsibility for the
lie, which is now working out its nat-
ural consequences in South Africa,
originally lay upon the Colonial Sec-
retary alone, but by a conspiracy of
falsehoods the select committee of
1897 was hocussed into returning a
false verdict, which, being afterward
accepted by the House of Commons,
involved Parliament itself into the re-
sponsibility of a fatal fraud." Mr.
Stead then asserts that "the war was
undertaken to conceal the truth and
to whitewash the Colonial Secretary,"
and he appeals to the House to insist
upon the production of the correspond-
ence between the Colonial Office and

Gen. Warren had abandoned Spion
Kop which he captured in the recent
night attack in Natal Colony, after
a sharp fight with the Boer forces.
The British casualty list, including
many officers, exceeds 200. Much
speculation was indulged in in London
as to the situation of the Tugela river,
and apprehension has been aroused
about Buller's army and the fate of
