A lengthy dispatch forwarded to the War Office by Major General Knox, from Kroonstad, presumably sent there by messenger, reads as follows: "Kroonstad, June 12. We have been requested to forward you from L rd Roberts the following dispatch from the Pretoria residency at 8.08 A. M. to day : "Pretoria and Johannesburg are perfectfy quiet and several of the inhabitants have expressed gratitude for the peace and order which prevail.

By Telegraph to the Morning star. Chicago, June 13. William Jen nings Bryan was in Chicago today and the center of much political dis cussion, all of it bearing on what may be done at the Democratic National Convention next month. Mr. Bryan saw scores of people during the day. He talked "business" with Senator Jones, chairman of the national com mittee; J. G. Johnson, head of the executive committee; Charles A. Walsh, secretary of the national com mittee; D. J. Cam pan, national com mitteeman of Michigan.' The platform to be adopted at Kan sas City and the vice presidential question, especially the Towne Popu list nomination angle of it. were con sidered at some length. Un tne question of platform the trend of discussion forecasted to some extent the differences of opinion which may arise at Kansas City, even among loyal Bryan men. ' The" question is whether the money plank and other troublesome legacies from 1896 shall be handled by re affirmation of the Chicago platform in a lump, or whether some planks of the 1896 platform, and especially the money plank, should be re-written. Mr. Bryan favors re-writing much of the 1896 platform this year. Senator Jones, according to credita ble advices, advocates reaffirmation of the Chicago platform as a whole, and then a quick transition to the newer issues of imperialism and trusts. Three Big Questions. "I say, as I have' said so many times," Mr. Bryan said when asked what he thought the platform and issues this year would or should be, "that I think the three big questions before us, are money, trusts and im perialism. The money question, of course, includes the question of silver and of paper money ; the question of imperialism includes militarism and tne policy of which our national ad ministration's workkr the Philip pines and attitude on the Boer ques tioh are samples. 1 believe the principles adopted in the platform of 1896 were adopted as a part of the party creed, never to be departed from. I do not think they should be or can be departed from this year. That platform must, however, be added, to as new issues arise. As I do not expect to be a delegate to the national convention I cannot presume to discuss the form in which these prin ciples shall be stated in the platform to be- adopted there. "1 cannot undertake to say what will be the paramount issue. No man can. One thinks one question is the big gestand another man thinks another is. "What do I think should be done in the Philippines ? . I think this country should tell those people that we are there only foe4he purpose of estab lishing a stable government, and that when we have done so we should turn the islands over to the people there and protect them against foreign aggres sion, as we have protected the South American republics. "lhe conditions ahead and tne plan of campaign ! Why conditions are much more favorable than they were at this time in 1896. The Republican party is on the defensive. It will talk prosperity, ot course, but we ll De will ing to take the votes of all the people who have not had their share of pros perity, and leave them the votes of lhe people who have had their share. "1 should say our plan or campaign will be to carry every State in the Union. Cannot carry all of them? I would not speak so harshly of the people of any State as to say that I thought the people there intended to support the Republican party." GEORGIA DEMOCRATS. State Convention Will Convene To-day.

Washington, June 13. Official dispatches received in diplomatic quarters in Washington, show that the rioting at Pekin has reached an acute stage, with rioters directing a number of assaults against members of the different foreign legations there. One of these dispatches states that the secretary of the Belgian legation was attacked two successive times on Mon day, and escaped after being maltreat ed by the mob. On the same day two officials of the British legation, serv ing as student interpreters, were attack ed by a large crowd of roughs. The young Englishmen held the attacking party back for a time, but when the mob threatened to close in on them, they drew revolvers, and by a show of force made their retreat witbout bodi ly injury. About the same time the British Summer quarters, fourteen miles from Pekin, weie burned down. These quarters were quite extensive and bad just been completed. They belong to the British government and not to Sir Claude McDonald, the Brit ish minister at Pekin, which gives added significance to the depredation. The killing of the chancellor of the Japanese legation at Pekin, Sugyaan- ma Akira, is not referred to in-the of ficial dispatches received here; but full credit is given to this report by the Japanese officials who are personally acquainted with Mr. Akira, and with many of the circumstances detailed. The killing of a member of the di plomatic body and the foregoing as saults upon the officials of foreign countries, are regarded as presenting tne most serious phase of the situation that has thus far occurred. A CHANGE OF FRONT. The Dowager Empress Withdraws Objec tion to the Presence of Foreign Troops in China. r Telegraph to tne Morninu star. Washington, June 13. Definite official information was received here this afternoon from the foreign office of one of the most important conti nental powers, stating that the Tsung Li Yamen had notified the minister of that power at Pekin that the Dowager impress would not object to the presence of foreign troops in China's territory. This change of front came as a distinct surprise to officials and diplomats, as all the reports up to this time had pictured the Dowager Em press as intensely hostile to the foreigners and as the real spirit behind the Boxers' anti-foreign uprising. The supposed attitude of the impress gave much concern to the authorities here and at other capitals, as it was feared it would eventuate in an open declaration by the government of China against the presence of the foreign troops. This would have raised a new complication, placing the foreign forces now advancing in the attitude of resisting the sovereign authority of China over her own ter ritory, instead of assisting China in a suppression of disorder. The lmpress Dowager's acquies cencein tne plans oi tne rowers is felt to remove a threatened complica tion, and at tne same time to give evidence that the Empress Dowager is no longer yielding to the anti- foreign clamor. La official Russian quarters the rumors that the impress Dowager has sought refuge at the Russian legation in Pekin are discredited and resented as a bit of inspired intrigue designed to create the impression that Russian sympathizers are with the anti-foreign element.

T THE QUESTION OF A VICE PRESIDENT he Only Topic of Conversation Among the Republican Leaders at Head quarters in Philadelphia. By Telegraph to the Morning Star Philadelphia, June 13 Practi oally the only topic of conversation among the Republican leaders who have arrived in Philadelphia is the question of the selection of a candidate for the vice presidency. Senator Hanna has devoted almost the entire time since his arrival to this question and has been in frequent conference wun outer leaders upon the subject He says absolutely that no candidate has yet been selected either by the resident or by himself or by anp one of them. During the noon recess of the committee Senator Hanna held a prolonged con ference with Senator Scott of West Virginia, Hon. Jos. Manley and Mr. ttenry B. Payne, probably the three oldest members of the national com mittee in point of service. When they dispersed all agreed that the question of the vice presidency was still open. mere was a question of general con fession of concern over the situation, but at the same time a feeling that in the end the right man would be found. Outside of the national committee meeting interest was centred on Sena tor Hanna. It was generally known that he would arrive at 1 o'clock, and there was a goodly crowd at the sta tion to see the famous national chair man. Mr. Hanna's companion to this city was Senator Allison, of Iowa, who was on his way to New York. It is generally understood that the two Senators had a good talk in reference to the vice presidential nomination on the train, and there was much specu lation as to the conclusion reached by each. Mr. na, however, soon satisfied the cui of the interviewers by stating t Mr. Allison did not want the nomi tion and that President McKinley and himself had not decided whom they would favor for the second place on the ticket. Senator Hanna was met at the station by Clement A. Griscom, president of the International Navigation Com pany, and they lunched together, while a crowd of admirers without the doors looked on. When the Senator reached the national headquarters at the Walton-he was instantly surrounded by Senators, Congressmen and dele gates. After the storm of greet ings had subsided Mr. Hanna held a short conference with commit teeman Payne Manley, of Maine .and Secretary Dick and then retired to the room of a friend. Senator Hanna took no part in the meeting of the national committee t?-day, he being in the committee leis than half an hour. His place was filled throughout the day and night session by Mr. Payne, the vice chairman. Probably most of the delegates in town came from the South and a fair proportion of these are colored. Quite a number of the Southerners are in terested in the pending contest and they hovered around the national committee rooms all day. The chief figure among the contestants, was J. Edward Addicks, the leader of the Union Republican faction in Dela ware. Mr. Addicks expressed the greatest confidence that his delegation will come out on top. The convention hall was to-day transferred from the building commit tee to the Citizens' National Commit tee, who will turn it over to the National Committee next Monday. Its acoustic properties were tested and found to be excellent. COTTON MARKETS. By Telegraph to the Morning Star. New York. June 13. Cotton quiet; middling uplands 9 l-16c.

The Navy Department has completed the prepar ation of a circular calling for bids for supplying armor plate in the navy, and it win be ready ior issue as soon as same of the typographical changes nave been made. Jb or tne nrst time the department has adopted the policy of classifying the armor. .The adver tisement calls first for the highest quality face hardened arir or, treated by the Krupp process. The second class is composed of armor of generally les ser thickness than class one (1) used in places where the requirements are not so severe, and in this case the ordi nary harveyized armor will serve. Class three (3) will be made up of thin plates, bolts, nuts, etc., material not requiring any kind of hardening pro cess. The new circular requires the armor- makers to supply armor of the very highest grade. Under that clause, if there are improvements in production tending to enhance the quality of the armor, the contractors must give them to the government without any extra cost.
