The Evening News. SATRUDAY, MAY 13, 1899. NEW STORIES ABOUT DEWEY "The Admiral's DUIIkc of Patchwork Salutes—His Mascot Monkey. Nothing is more pleasing to most Americans than the anecdotes about Admiral George Dewey that are coming to the United States. There are stories about his close confinement to bis flagship and the work he performed on the quarter deck.

Great Britain is having more trouble with the Transvaal Republic, in South Africa. Quite a large number of British officers and others have been caught in a conspiracy to incite a rebellion against President Paul's republic and are under arrest, and incriminating documents were found upon them. Johannesburg, the capital, is in an intense condition of excitement. All of this trouble grows out of the inordinate desire of the British for the possession of all the gold lands existing in the little Republic.
