It says also that all British soldiers must be removed from the borders; that no further menticn shall be made of Great Britain's suzerainty over the Transvaal and that there shall be no further British demands. The "Volkstein," the official organ of the South African Republic, accuses Hoffmyer, the Afrikander leader, and Premier Schrelner, of Cape Colony, who are imported ta be on the way to Pretoria to prevent the war, with back sliding and expresses the hope that they will tee the character of the Brit ish policy.

Washlagtoa. I). C, BpeelaL The culmination of Adsairal Dewey's trt omphal bome-comlag was reached Tuesday in the thidow f the dome f the Bstioaal eatfltol. Here he rrl. d from the hands of the Prwldest the magnificent jewelled tword voted him by Coa greta. la commemoration of the victory of Msnlls bay. This was the official provocation for tae ceremony. But mere official ssartloa could never have thrown into the dem onstration the fervor of eathuslasn. that was meted out to the great ad miral as he appeared before the vct audience that was'compofced not only of all the hlghea cfflclaU In the land, but of spectator drawn from every quarter cf the United States. The battle of Manila biy was not forgot ten, but It might be said to hive been relegated almost to see-ond place In the desire to do honor to the man who proved himself as great after victory as before it. and who bad shown In the long and trying months that fol lowed hid naval triumph the qualities of a statesman and a wle administra tor cs well as those of a flagship leader of a victorious fleet, And en hancing these qualities was that of manly racde3ty, d!tpUyed in the quiet dignity with which he met the oc casion. This trait of Dewey's charac ter was demonstrated from the mo ment he reached the stand side by side with the President. He paured at this point for a moment, unwilling, apparently, to take the place that bad been prepared for him on the right of the platform. lest he should appear to usurp the place due to the President. President McKinley grasped the situ ation in an instant, and taking hU great sea captain by the arm and plac ed him by gentle force In the chair that bad been intended for him. Later in the day, as the carriages bearing the official party drove away from the capitol, between walls of cheering people, the President again displayed his tact by remainng covered and Ig noring the demonstration himself, leaving it to the admiral alone to ac knowledge. Fcr Dewey it was a try ing as well as a triumphal day. It has been given to few officers in naval his tory of the country to sit before a crowd of thousands while the chief of the naval establishment dilated npsn his exploits and then to stand before the same crowd to receive at the hands of the President a sword prepared for him at the behest of the repre lontotlvM of tk Mt people. Tlic strain upon Admiral Dewey reacheJ alnioat to a breaking point. But none of those nearest to him could ree how he labored to repress his feelings dur ing the address cf Secretary Long, but when he arose to receive the sword from the hands of the President no one could mistake the flash of the whit gloved hand as it rose to dash away the tears before the admiral came to the rigid attitude of attention before his chief. . When it became Dewey's turn to re ply, his voice failed him, and be made the effort twice before his lips would respond. When he did succeed his tones were clear and steady, but so low that only those nearest to him could hear. There was a quiet but ex quisite comedy following the trying formalities that escaped all but those directly upon the stand. As the ad miral closed and took his seat he turn ed to the President and In a tone of quizzical appeal, inquired. "Now real ly, don't you think I did pretty well for an amateur?" One of the most remarkable features of the eventful day was the ovation to Rear-Admiral Schley on the return of the party from the capitol to the White lloufe. His carriage was sever al numbers behind that of the Presi dent and Admiral Dewey, and he re ceived an ovation that could scarcely rank below that accorded to the ad miral himself. The tumult grew as the carriage proceeded down the ave nue and the crowd surged arounti it till the horses were brought to .a foot pace. Finally a company of the High School cadets came to the rescue and formed about the carriage in a. hollow square. Thus protected . and flanke 1 by a force of police the carriage reach ed the White House with a long gap between it and the next preceding. The ' home-coming of Admiral -Geo. J)ewey for henceforth the national Capital is to be his home was made the occasion for the greatest tribute ever paid by Washington to any itfdi vidual. Arxer the preliminary wel come in New York, itself unsurpassed in its kind, it remained for the highest and greatest In the official world to bold out the hand of greeting to the famous admiral, and to Join with the people who arc to be his fellow citi zens In, bidding him welcome. The citizens fcad made every preparation to make the occasion worthy of tttelr hero. The decorations were elaborate. Pennsylvania avenue was one maw of colored bnnt.pg along the enr.ra .lux of march from the . station to the White House, and not content with this, few private crusens failed to make some display of color on thMr residences. Unique designs in fairy lamP3 dotted the boriron, great search lights threw broad beams of bright light across the blue sky of a clear October evening, and the stately cap itol stood revealed In all Its. queenly beauty in the powerful rays of many concentrated light.
