Conger's Message And After News
Anent Yuan Shih Kai
THE CAUSES OF REJOICING.
Washington, July 23.—Secretary
Hay had been prepared for the news
from Minister Conger by a dispatch
from Consul (Jen. Ooodnow at Shang-
hai telling of the transmittal of Con-
ger's message. Mr. Wu appeared at
the state department directly after
Goodnow'a message was received. Mr.
Wu came tearing through the streets
in his autimoble, having left his break-
Throughout the day the Conger mes-
sage remained the absorbing topic of
discussion. Secretary Hay was con-
gratulated on the success of the steps
he had taken to open up communica-
tion between Pekin and Washington,
for. while the chancellories of the
world stood hesitating and inactive,
he had adopted a course which had
brought a message from our minister.
The Chinese minister, Mr. Wu, shared
also in the universal approbation of
what had been done. He seconded
Mr. Hay's effort from the outset, and
it is due to the official machinery set
in motion by him that the communica-
tions were got through.
A message from Consul Fowler that
General Yuan Shih Kai, governor of
Shang Tung province, reported that
the Chinese authorities were doing all
in their power to put down the insur-
rection, is exceedingly welcome intel-
ligence. It not only confirms the
theory of the state department that
the position of the Chinese government
is correct, but is assumed to indicate
that Yuan Shih Kai has thrown the
weight of his influence on the side of
the government. Yuan is considered
one of the ablest, if not the ablest,
general in China. He has. according
to a statement made by Lord Charles
Ileresford to a prominent state depart-
ment official when he was here last
fall, the best drilled and equipped
army in C'hii.a under his command.
Some doubt was entered as to which
side he would ally himself in the pres-
eut insurrection and the fact that he
appears to be on the side of the gov-
ernment is accepted as evidence that
his best judgment is that Prince Tuan's
rebellion is destined to fail.
Diirord Storle* Overdone.
Washington, July 21.—In the ab-
sence of direct news from China
attention was directed mainly to the
more or less speculative stories emana-
ting from Kuropean capitals indicative
of discord among the powers. It is
realized that these little ebullitions of
mutual suspicion always characterize
allied movements, and so are to be
expected in the present case. It can
be stated that so far as official record
discloses, there is absolutely no ground
for them. Hussia, a power more than
any other under suspicion in these
stories, has not been backward in
assuring the state department of the
coincidence of Secretary Hay's declara-
tion with Russia's purpose in China.
Vt'lctiltn's Strike Settled.
Wichita. Ka. ., July 20.—The strike
on the new Missouri Pacific depot in
this city has been settled. The con-
tractor has agreed to adopt the union
scale of wages, union hours ane to em-
ploy none but members of the union.
Mmiia< r« at Tat Yuen Ku.
London, July 20,—According to a
dispatch from Shanghai to the Daily
Mail, a massacre occurred on July 0,
at Tai Yuen Fu. capital of the province
Shan Si, forty foreigners and a hun-
dred native converts being killed.
No Extra Snilon Anticipated.
Washington. July 21.—A member of
the cabinet is quoted as saying that
neither the fact, if it so develops, that
our legation is murdered, and that it
was done by the connivance of the
government, would necessitate a special
session of congress. He said that if
Hussia has been attacked over the Si-
berian line it would complicate mat-
ters, but that "we have have nothing
to do with that: it would be between
those two governments. Besides, we
do uot know the facts."
To Make I'p Our tjuota.
Washington. Jnly 20.—The position
of the administration is described by a
prominent official as one of waiting.
Authentic and reliable news of the
situation in Pekin is expected soon.
Until it arrives nothing remains to be
done but to mobilize and push forward
the troops and marines selected to
make up our quota of the <M),000 soldiers
which the commanders at Taku have
decided are necessary to hold Tien
Tsin and insure the success of the for-
ward movement on Pekin.
Tliey Refuned to Mtrike.
Dayton, O., July 23.—Six unknown
persons assaulted Calvin Phebus, aged
00, and his son. Kugene, aged and
then beat them into insensibility.
During the melee the elder Phebus
shot one of the aesailants, who was
removed and secreted by his compan
iona Joseph Kiser was also assaulted
and may die from his injuries. The
attacks are the outgrowth of the strike
at the Callahan Machine Company, the
men assaulted having refused to join a

Cypher Dispatch Received In W «hlnJiton
Washington, July 21.—A cypher
cable dispatch was received yesterday
by Minister Wu from Ambassador Con-
ger in Pekin. It was written in the
state department cypher, and was
taken at once by Mr. Wu to Secretary
Hay. It says:
"In British Legation. Under con-
tinued shot and shell from Chinese
troops. Quick relief only can prevent
The message is not dated, but it is
understood was sent from Pekin on
Secretary Long has sent the follow-
ing cablegram to Admiral Remey:
"Conger telegraphs that he is under
fire in British legation. Pekin. 1 se
and urge every means possible for
Secretary Long Very Hopeful.
Washington, July 23.—Secretary
Long says it is a great victory for the
state department of the United States.
Every country in Christendom was
employing every agency in its posses-
sion to obtain authentic news of the
besieged ministers, and the United
States is the first to give to the world
authentic and absolutely reliable word
direct from Pekin. There is now good
reason to believe that the ministers
will be able to hold out until a reliev-
ing force reaches them. If they have
been able to stand the siege for almost
a month after the outside world had
given up hope there seems no reason
to fear that they will not be able to
hold out a little longer.
Nntallpoi at Cnpe Nome.
Seattle, July 21.—The Sequoia left
Nome late on the night of the .'Jrd and
brings much late news about the small-
The pest house at Nome is full and
overflowing with patients afflicted with
smallpox, and the government officials
are erecting two other large structures,
one of which, with adjuncts, will cover
an acre of ground. The disease has
spread rapidly and inanv cases are
quarantined in the tents in which they
were discovered. There are at least
200 cases of smallpox in the j>esthouse
and around the camp, and the people
are being taken dow n at the rate of
seventeen to twenty a daj*.
Kxceislve Heat In New York.
New York, July 20.—The hot
weather caused or cantributed toward
the death of more than 70 persons in
this city and vicinity. As many more
stricken ones are in the hospitals.
More than half the fatalities were
among babies and little children, and
there are now alxmt forty bodies of
the little ones lying at the morgue at
Bellevue. This vas the third day of
intense heat. Wednesday was the
St Paul, Minn., July 21.—Governor
John Lind in reporting to the war de-
partment the militia strength of Min-
nesota, notified the federal government
that the force was amply sufficient and
competent to protect settlers from In-
dians, who were reported by the news-
papers as restless in the northern part
of the state, in case there was any use
for the regular troops in China or else-
New Order for Hawaiian Malls.
Washington. July 20.— The postoffice
department has ordered that, begin-
ning August 1. all mails for the
Hawaiian Islands shall be forwarded
exclusively to San Francisco or other
American ports for despatch and that

Berlin. July 20.—The news that the
Boxer movement is spreading in the
southern provinces causes great anx-
iety here. It is regarded as confirming
the views of Germans who have spent
much time in China that the events in
Pekin would draw all China into the
TROOPS ARE NEEDED I CUBA
Until the Constitutional Conven-
tion is Over With.
CUBANS WANT THEM THERE.
Washington, July 21.—Governor Gen-
eral Wood called at the war office ami
went immediately into Secretary Hoot's
office. He said he knew very little
about conditions in China or the reason
for his having been called to Washing-
ton. He came here in response to a
telegraphic request from Secretary
Hoot. General Wood said conditions
in Cuba were quiet and favorable.
General Wood spent three hours
with the secretary of w ar. The Cuban
situation was gone over thoroughly.
General Wood reiterated his opinion
tuat it would be very undesirable to
withdraw more than the three regi-
ments now under orders to leave the
island. The removal of the troops
now under orders will reduce the
American force in Cuba to a little
more than .1,000 men. These, General
Wood considers essential to the welfare
of the island till after the coming con-
stitutional convention. The date for
this has not yet been fixed, and about
six weeks' notice will have to be given,
owing to the slowness of rural com-
munication. The election of delegates
to the convention probably will be
over by October 1. The Cubans do not
want the American troops replaced by
native volunteers at this time, becausc
of the opening this would make for a
military dictatorship. After the con-
stitutional convention, it may be pos-
sible to reduce the insular force still
It is understood that Secretary Root
coincided with General Wood's views
after the situation had been fully ex-
plained, and no further draft will be
made on the Cuban force at present.
Elks From Four States.
Joplin, Mo., July 23.—The
lodges of the states of Missouri, Kan-
sas and Arkansas and the territory of
Oklahoma are to meet in joint session
at Joplin the third Tuesday in October.
These four statts embrace a regular
circuit and this will be its first annual
meeting. The Joplin Klks have the
finest lodge room in the Southwest and
one of the finest in America.
The Oregon Ilattle Ship.
Washington. Juty 21.—The navy de-
partment has word from Captain Wilde
that the Oregon has gone into dock at
Kure, Japan, and he asks if he shall
.nake a thorough work on the repairs
or shall patch her plates and go on to
Taku. Secretary Long replied: "If
safety of Oregon permits patch and go
to Taku. 1 commend your preference
for service there. LONG."

"It was really a most comical situa-

friend. Lady Glenlyndon. "They were
announced together Just like husband

ment and quite unconscious of the

have ordered him to be turned out of

not do that she turned up her nose—
and I am sure it turns up quite
enough of itself. Well, she sat down
by me, and he sat near and talked af-
fably, obviously trying to draw her in.
She sat looking daggers at him, re-
fusing to be drawn, and then at last
snubbing him so that he gave her just
one glance and left her to herself. She
went soon, and, I ho^pe, felt ashamed
of herself, but I doubt it."
"Nothing is less conducive to repent-
ance," said Lady Olenlyndon,laughing,

oughly In the wrong."

"In this unlucky fashion began the
personal acquaintance, if it may be so
called, between the new Lord Witney
and the widow of his predecessor. The
piquancy of the situation from the
spectator's point of view lay In the
fact that the two persons concerned
were the opposing leaders of a family
feud. The old Lord Witney had al-
ways resented the fact that he had no
son, and Lady Witney was even more
indignant that her daughter could not
inherit to the exclusion of the distant
cousin. The fact that the principal seat
and estate were entailed lent fuel to
Lord Witney had pictured his "dear
relation" as a typical dowager with
the external appearance of a frump
and the manners of a true virago. Lady
Witney, as it happened, was one of
those fortunate women who preserve
their fineness of figure, delicacy of
skin, and piquancy of figure. Also
she did not disdain to lend some skill-
ful assistance to the work of nature.
She had been married young, hut she
looked much younger than she was,
and but for the well-known fact that
her daughter's "coming out" was one
of the events of the year, she might
haved posed successfully as the typical
femme a trente ans.
"Witney ought to marry his cousin
and reunite the title and the property,"
was what the world said. Kind and
busy-bodying people even hustled
about and tried to help this on. An
entirely unpremeditated effect, how-
ever, was produced by some well-
meaning but ignorant rich people.
They put Lady Witney on his other
side at dinner. She gave him her
shoulder ostentatiously through the
soup and fish. Then he spoke to her.
She did not reply or turn, but she did
not continue her conversation with her
partner. Witney spoke again—a lead-
ing remark of a general kind. She
turned on him with flashing eyes and
replied in a manner that from one
stranger guest to another was decidedly
fierce, not to say rude. Witney was
not at all abashed. He seemed rather
amused and continued the conversa-
"Don't you think." she said, abrupt-
ly, "that a fortune-hunter is a despic-
"Certainly," he replied, readily.
"And don't you think that a fortune
hunter wtyo pursues a girl simply for
her money when he knows that he will
never be allowed to marry her, and
that the mere Idea is hateful and not
to be borne, and that he would never
dare If the girl had a father or a
brother to protect her "

The plate will become the port plate
of a turret on the vessel, and Is made

he had done this or had any Intention
of doing so. On the contrary, he knew
that she had married as the merest girl,

she was even younger.
She found it absolutely necessary to
answer this to the effect that she at-

appearance, and he replied to her.
How long this singular correspond-
ence would have gone on it Is difficult
to say, but happening to meet Lord
Witney at a party. Lady Witney went
up to him.
"I know what you are aiming at,"
she said. "You want to get hold of

that if you persecute me you will drive

"Not yet. But she will."
"You seem remarkably confident. Is
she so weak, then?"
"No, she doesn't seem to me weak,"
he replied, eyeing her with a smile.
"She seemed to me a very determined

There was another pause amf their
