who made up the American contingent to
the International Convention In England,
landed here thlB afternoon from tho North
German Llcyd steamship Trave, and gave
thanks to bd home.
This contingent, which Is the first to re
turn, la composed very largely of delegates
from St. Louis and vicinity. Severe experi

too much in a tourist agency. After tribu
lations that Inspired a likening of their lot
to the trials and fata of the Crusaders of
old, these aid reached here safe and sound,
but lamenting the plight of their more nu
merous brethren left behind In Europe,
mostly at Part. and Lucerne, Switzerland,
wide over the Continent, practically pennl- i
Those who arrived to-day constituted
"Tour A" of the Christian Endeavor con
tingent, and, as has been said, they ore
residents oi St. Louis and vicinity, and
of tho territory beyond. More than half
of the 200 are women. These delegates
from the West confirm all that ha3 been
printed in The Republic from special corre
spondents In Europe about the destitution
of Amerlcsns abroad. How hard hit wero
these delegates may be Judged from the
fact that it took nearly six hours to locate
them after they had landed from tho Travo
to-day. They were found scattered about
among boai ding-houses In Brooklyn and in
tho homes of friends.
They and others of the band of Endeavor
ers were to have sailed from hero on
July 1 on the North German Lloyd steam

fell Into Deep Water at Kings
Lake Saved by Two
Mrs. Uannle Flesh Morse, who Instituted
divorce proceedings last week against her
husband, Thomas P. Morse, as a result of
tho shooting of J. B. Kendall by Thrasher
Hall, had a thrilling escape from drowning
In King's Lako, Illinois, at noon Friday.
Mrs. Morse was returning wit her son
Lea and Miss Josephine Schacfer from a
fishing expedition. In trying to fasten tho
boat to the dock she missed her footing
and fell Into the lake.
The screams of Miss Schaefer and Lee
Morso attracted tho attention of two car
penters engaged in repairing the dock, and
the men ran to her assistance.
Flr6t, ono of the carpenters, named Ma
eon, mado a desperate effort to save her,
but failed. Reachine over tho edge of the
dock, he caught a firm hold of her by the
arms and 6ought to lift her. The second
carpenter camo to his aid and together the
two managed, after much btrugcling, to
Fell Into Deep "Water.
Mrs. Morse and party returned to St.
Louis yesterday. When seen at her home,
No. 4156 Laclede avenue, Mrs. Morso was
loath to talk of her experience.
"It was only an accident," she said. "We
went to King's Lake Thursday night. In
tending to remain there several days, as I
had promised my boys a fishing and outing
"None of us rested that night. My son
Leo, now 14 years old, was not well, and I
was obliged to attend to his wants. Fri
day morning we decided to go fishing. Lee,
Miss Schacfer and I got Into one boat and
my other boys, Terry and Matthew, into
another. JVe could find ao one to row our
to travel. Including that for guides. The
hotels with which arrangements were made
ranked as the best In Europe.
"But from the first we found ourselves In
cheap quarters, with second-class food and
accommodations. Tho tour was grossly
"We were to go first to Southampton, then
to London. Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels.
Germany, Switzerland and through France
back to Paris. On our return to Paris wo
learned that Crawford & Floyd were unable
to meet further financial obligations, and
that we would have to pay our faro from
Pans to Cherbourg, whero a ship was prom
ised under the nrrangemsnts originally
made with the steamship compan. .
"We had moriey for a day, some lending to
others, and I can assure you that we were
glad when wo got aboard ship, for In our
way we made our dinner one day on
crackers. Tho treatment wo received waa
outrageous. ,- --
"Other parties of Christian Endeavorers
were caught far away from tho European
ports. They constituted tours B and C,
but there were other smaller parties. One
of the two main bodies is in Paris and one at
Lucerne, Switzerland. The Republic has
told tho truth about the condition of these
people, from what you tell me of the ad
vices received from abroad."
Jose de Alvars, another passenger on tho
Trave, said that If there had not been rr
sons of wealth in the party, things would
have gone very hard with the delegates..
Charles H. DcCroft. a delegate from East
Orange, N. J., and many others, told of the
distressing situation in which the delegates
found themselves, while it was hard to tell
what was In store for the widely scattered
groups, whose whereabouts even were un
known. Sir. Emmons, tho New York agent of the
tourist agency which undertook to pay all
eipenbea out of the $30,000 paid by the St.
Louis delegation, arrived here to-day in tho
first cabin of the American liner St. Louis.
Ho said that tho whole trouble was due to
the Hoboken fire. The vessels engaged were
burned. There waa delay and additional
expense in making arrangements for other
vessels, and then the hotels with which ar-
l rangements had been made In Europo in
i somo cases refused tho coupons offered by
tho Endeavorers because the datos had
, passed for which rooms had been hired, or.
where these coupons were not refused, ad
ditional pay was demanded. The tourist
firm thus found Itself In difficulties for
which it was not responsible.
"But." said Mr. Emmons, "all monevs
I paid by the tourists which we should liavo
paid will bo refunded, and Mr. Crawford is
now doing all In his power to rescuo thoso
still stranded In Europe."
MRS. FANNIE FLESH MORSE,

his services rather than postpone tho trip
on the lake.
"A little past 11 o'clock wo started back
to shore. The bov rowed the stern of tho
skiff against the dock and I, being nearest
the landing, tried to fasten the chain.
"With the chain held tightly In my right
hand and my left arm around the post, I
stepped on tho dock, intending to slip the
chain over tho post. As I placed my foot
on the landing the skiff receded and I tum
bled into the deep water. You may know
that I screamed as loudly as I could; and
Miss Schaefer and Lee also screamed, fear

realized that the boy couldn't pave me.

Powers may to determine pending Chinese
questions. It Is apparent that they will em

which each will pursue.
In conformity with the lines laid down by

the President will endeavor to inject har

therefore, that he will continue to take the
lead in submitting propositions for the sat

thority that the United States would stand
by the principles enunciated by Secretary
Hay in his noto of July 3, and this Gov

the theory that those principles, whl h were
indorsed by Europe and Japan, will be hon
Secretary Hay's note made it plain that
the United States would not consent to the
dismemberment of the Chinese Empire, and
that tho "open door" in trade must bo main

Government Anally to determine upon its
Chinese policy until It hears from Us repre

Tho United States, for instance, would
have preferred the surrendering by the
Chinese of tha Envoys and their charges,
so that there might be no reason for the
occupation of Pekln by the allied troops.
But the abandonment of the city at this
Juncture would result In anarchy, as, so far
as known, the flight of the Chinese officials
left no one In authority to preserve peace
and order in the capital. According to the
view of the administration, therefore, the
United States Government would be shirk
ing its responsibility If It wero to with
draw Its troops from Pekln, and also would
be deprived of that Important position In
tho dUcusslon of the future of China de

First lnetlon to lie Settled.
The first point which the Powers must de
termine Is in regard to what persons shall
be recognized as constituting the Govern
ment of China.
Even though tho Empress Dowager and
the Emperor have fled from their capital,
the mass of the Chinese recognize them as
their rulers, and so far as this Govern
ment Is concerned it will continue to nego
tiate with Li Hung Chang as representing
the Emperor, and by such negotiation rec
ognize Kwang Su as tho Government of
It is believed that all the Powers are
agreed as to Kwang Su's status, though
there will be a division as to what shall be
done with the Empress Dowager. Both In
official and diplomatic circles the disposi
tion Is to permit her to save her dignity,
but It Is firmly declared that she must be
deposed. Russia has always been friendly
to tho Empress Dowager, and doubtless
will have something to say on this point.

14th St. and Pennsylvania. Ave.
Washington, Aug. 18. Speaking of the
course this Government should pursue tow
ard China, Senator Thurston of Nebraska
to-day outlined what may be taken as the
administration's view, when he said:
"I think this Government should co-operate
as fully as possible with tho Powers in
restoring order In the Chinese Empire .and
preventing its dismemberment. I am op
posed to the dismemberment of the Empire,
although it is, perhaps, a bit premature to
consider such a proposition at this time. I
do not know that such a thing Is con
templated. But the restoration of law and
order will bo the first step.
"General Chaffee and his splendid little
force of American soldiers aro true heroes,
as are those who so nobly and bravely
stood off the attacks of the murderous Chi
nese on the legations. Tho pulse of every
true American ought to beat faster at the
thought of American pluck and bravery so
admirably exhibited. It in typical of the
sturdy strength of American manhood."
"What guarantees should bo exacted from
the Chinese Government, what indemnity
demanded and what disposition should bo
made of tho American soldiers now and
soon to be landed on Chinese soil?" was
A Money Indemnity.
"It seems mercenary for Governments to
demand a money Indemnity for the Uvea of
their citizens, but such a course is the only
legal and justifiable one. We don't want
j their lives, so we must demand a monetary
consmerauon. i imntt ina very leusi, una

It Is considered altogether likely here that
alt the Powers will retain troops In China.
The United States is undoubtedly the first
nation that Is considering the advisability
of revoking orders to troops under Instruct

to-day that Secretary Root has1 sent a cable

By every honorable means It will be tha

to be.leve that in the negotiations a prop

up Into spheres of police, the Power having
charge of a certain sphere being held re
sponsible for the preservation of order
therein. This Government, fearing that a.

The President and his advisers have been
considering the advisability of appointing
a commission tc gt to China to adjudicate
the damages suffered by Americans and
their Interests. A diplomat suggested to
day that the commission should be Inter
national In character and adjudicate all the
claims, and It Is probable that this sug
gestion will be seriously considered.
According to LI Hung Chang, however,
China Is too poor to pay such an indemnity
as tho Powers will demand, and the prob
lem which thi3 Government must aid In
solving is how to satisfy the claims of tha
Powers without the occupation of terri
tory. The diplomat who discussed tho situa
tion to-day expressed the belief that tha
Powers would remain In China until com
p'ete reparation was made, and as his
opinion Is based on information which ha
