any repetition of Mafeking night which it is feared might en- suo should the conclusion of peace be announced One of the curious features of the negotiations is that five of the Boeis representatives

that the ter had accepted and that it also is stated that General Meritt had himself sent an aide to General Greene gesting that arrangements be made with the Filipinos for a common under- standing in the occupation of the trenches He then asked if in view of these facts the inference was not that friendly co-operation was not the American officials with the Filipinos in the attack on the Spaniards s Assuming the facts to be ae the replied if there were all there is in the premises it might be ad- mitted that inference was to be drawn as indicated But there are other facts form a part of the

began some days ago Oulnion In Wall street is in a nebulous condition as to who now controls the company but there is conviction that has passed from the Belmont interests and that John W Gates has been a factor in its passing There appears to toe good tion the opinion that Mr Gates may now ce in position toy throwing his stock one way or the other to decide interests shall hereafter control li
