Berllu, Wednesday, Sept. 12.-(CoiyriRlit, 1000, by the New York Herald
Cotniiany.') I learn that all the replies from the .foreign Powers to the Russian
proposals as to China have now arrived at St. Petersburg.
The Fnrelsn OHice here protends to lenow their contents and asserts tlint
the Russian, Kronen and American forees arc retiring to Tien-Tsin, but are not
to be withdrawn from Count von Waldcrseos supreme command.
RUSSIA AND FRANCE NOTIFY
AMERICA OF THEIR PLANS.
Washington. Sept. II. France and ItuMa
hae ottlclally notified the Tniled State
novcrnment that they are agreed upon the
advisability of withdrawing their legations
and troops to Tien-Tsin. The time and man
ner or withdrawal -will be lelt to their rep
resentatives in the Chinee capital.
The comrrunlcation of this information to
Acting Secretary cf State Hiil was followed
this morning by inquiries as o the action
this Government propose' to take
M. Thlebaul, the French Charge d'At
falres. called at the State Department, and,
in addition to communicating to Doctor Hill
the sjmpathy of his Goernment for the
disaster at Galveston, discussed iith him.
It is believed, the action the Fnited State
will take in the matter of the withdrawal
of its Minister and troop?
It is asserted on authority that the Pres
ident will ohsere the declaration made In
the response of Acting Secretary of State
Adee to the Russian proposal that "unless
there is such a general expresMon by the
Powers in favor of continued occupation as
lo modify the Iews expressed by the Gov
.rnmtnt of Russia and lead to a general
Agreement for continued occupation, we
thall give instructions to the commander of
the American forces in China to withdraw
nut trocp- from Pekln."
No instructions have yet gone, either to
Slml'ter Conger or General Chaffee to
withdraw, though they have been advised
if In left developments and are ready to
leave the mo'nept instruction? to do so are
rt-elvcd. Nj dut,i' Is expressed, either in
fIlill cr diplomatic circles that the Presi
dent I anxious that American troops shall
ltave China, but i is stated by official
that" he lees not propose to observe such
haste in AithJra.vmg as to be accused of
siultlint," and that when the troops can
le v.lthcijav.n v. it!. out loss of honor, this
v ill' be done.

nixl 1 runce th ui nguncement should come
to the u:e Department that U Huns
(.bans' is gomj to Tien-Tsin. It is under

ence ihere. Coneemlr.g Li's purpose, this

ments, with Ueimauy and Great lirlUtn

U is apparent that Uus.sU and France
desire expedition In withdrawal because
tfaey do not care to place their troops di
rectly under the command of Count von
Waldersee, though they agreed to his ap
pointment as Commander-in-Chief. The
same objection to permitting American
troops to act directly under Von Walder
eee's eye also exists here. Von Waldersfe
will go to Pekln, and his troop- will prob
ably be welcome, as the British and German
troops, unsupported by the detachments of
other nations, would be in a dangerous po
sition. It Is likely that this Government,
however, will not withdraw General Chaffee
nnd hlB command until sufficient re-enforce-ments
have arrived to take their pjaces.
American Life 1 ot Safe.
Considerable stress is- placed by adminis
tration officials upon Doctor Hill's declara
tion in his note handed to the Chinese Min
ister that, as a condition of negotiation. LI
Hung Chang must give a'surances that
American life and property throughout
China shall be respected. It was pointed
out to-day that since the issuance of the
edict American citizens have lost their lives
and American property has been de-stroyeJ.
nnd the President is averse to taking anv
measures for the restoration of peace until
he Is certain that no further outrages will
be committed upon Americans.
It Is stated that no action has. been taken
by this Government in the matter of in
demnity the Government will demand for
the destruction of life and property that
lias occurred. The only proposition being
discussed by the Powers relates to the
withdrawal of troops from Pekln, and It is
apparent that the compromise proposed of
reducing the force in Pekin to a small
guard for the legations will not be adopted
In view of the announced purpose of Rus
sia and Trance to adhere to the original
proposal of the St. Petersburg Government
In his dispatch to the State Department
to-day Mr. Goodnow failed to state the con
. veyance that Li Hung Chang would em

pression exists here that the Nashville, in
accordance with a probable request to Ad
miral Remey through Sir Robert Hart, will
be employed. The Nashville Is now at

Mabel Johnson. IS jears old, who lives
with her mother at No. 3013 Easton avenue,
was arrested jestorday on the charge of
stealing articles from a church.
She admits tho thefts, but says she did
not realize the criminality of such acts. She
was taken to the Dayton Street Station. As
nobody will prosecute she probably will be
released this morning.
Pride was the motive which led her to
steal. She had had a position as assistant
bookkeeper in a. downtown store, but was
laid off. Her mother also worked, and the
daughter did not want to tell her parent
that she had lost her place.
The two lived in the one room at No. 3013
i-iston avenue, and were all In nil to each
other. Mrs. Johnson's husband being dead
and there being no other children. The
mother had been overjoyed when the daugh
ter obtained employment, and had cau
tioned the girl to do work that would se
After the lay-off occurred the girl con
tinued to go out in the morning and como
in in the evenli.g as had been her wont
when Mill at work. For a month she con
tinued to do this, spending her time tho
while wandering around the streets. Then
the fact that she had no money aroused
the suspicions of her mother.
While she had so much time on her hands
she went one day to St. Alphonsus's Rock
Church, at Grand and Cook avenues. She
noticed that when the worshipers left
their places in the pews nnd moved around
to the various altars it would be
easy to slip Into the vacated pews and
pocket such articles as were left behind.
When her mother firt showed signs of
FUFpet-tlng that she had lost her position,
Mabel thousrht of tho church nnd thought
that perhaps here she could get the money
to keep up appearances.
So the put into practice tho plan outlined
above, and daily went to the church. She
took small things, principally, such as
beads, missals, crucifixes and the like, but
at times pockctliooks were reported miss
ing. Mabel Johnson, not being n communi
cant of the church and being noticed
there, was suspected and finally arrested
yesterday by Special Officers Ahearn and
Field. Some of the church articles and a
pocketbook containing S3 cents, identified
ns the property of Miss Marie A. Kearney
of No. 31W Easton avenue, were found In
the girl's room.

With tho approach of the hour for the
reassembling of the New York Democratic
State Convention thero developed evidence
that expectation of a hot fight between the
organization and the Hill elements was not
to be realized.
The Committee on Credentials, which. It
had been suggested, might unseat Hill men
ami scat organization men. was Instructed
irom Murphy-Croker headquarters to seat
contestants absolutely on their merit and
Rive the benefit of any close decision to the
Hill delegates, so there could be no minor
As a further step toward making the work
of the convention smooth, it was announced
early In the day that State Senator XV. F.
Slackey had dccidcil to accept the second
place on tho ticket, waiving his claim upon
tho gubernatorial nomination.
The Committee on Permanent Organiza
tion reported In favor of George Raines of
Slonroe County for permanent chairman,
and hu was elected.
Chairman Hnlnex'x ."peecli.
In taking the chair .Mr. Raines spoke at
considerable length. He began by stating
that the Republican party of the State is
wholly dominated by one man Senator
Piatt and predicted the defeat of the Re
publican State ticket this jear by the same
element that overthrew the Folger ticket,
because of Federal interference.
Sir. Raines declared that "the chief finan
cial Issue of the hour is the stifllrg of com
petitive conditions of business by aggrega
tions of corporate capital in trusts." He
"There is no remedy except the annt
1 ilatlon of the party which has not an
tagonized, but befriended trusts."
"President's Fatll .Mistake."
Taking up the subject of territorial ex
panslcn. Sir. Raines said:
"We arc told by our opponents that after
100 years we have now become a world
Power, with responsibilities and duties as
such: that we hfcve now become a civilizing
force and must assimilate the Philippines
to our system by force. If need be. Thty
ray we have paid J2O.O0O.WO to extinguish
Spain's title to rule those millions of peo
ple, nnd we are now a world Power; we
must not flinch from eo obvious a duty.
"They say further that from the resist
ance of the Filipino to the operation of our
scheme it follows that our dignity as a,
world Power requires that a war of sub
JuitatlortBd extermination. If need be, con
tinue, else our flag., will be hauled down
where we paid 2o,a,ui)0 to plant It. They
do not claim the S.WO.w) of people have
consented to be governed by us. nor to
surrender the independence they have
battled many years i to wrest from Spain.
"The fatal mistake of the proclamation
by the President of December 21. 1S3S. was
a deliberate act."
In that proclamation. Sir. Raines said,
no suggestion of self-government, nor of
temporary sovereignty, nor of hope of fu
ture Independence was made. The treaty
had then been agreed upon.
"A war of subjugation wns deliberately
rausid to deny se'f-government to the peo
ple, of the Phlllpnines.
Sir. Raines predicted that "vears hence
we shall be holding small portions of the
Philippines only by larger armies."
Position of Christian .Nntlon.
"The idedge to the world that our war
with Spain was for the liberation of her
subjects," said -Sir. Raines. "Is falsified,
and the world will point to our hypocrisy,
except we return to the path or honor. The
spectacle presented at the close of the cen
tury Is of the two nations which vaunt
their leadership In Christian civilization
forcing a foreign and alien rule upon the
Tranvaal and th Philippines under the
specious plea that they extend thereby
the frontier of Christian and civilized rule."
The report of the Platform Committee was
adopted without amendment.
On the call of the roll for nominations for
Governor. Ex-Governor Hill responded for
Albany County, naming UIrd S. Colr.
Comptroller of New York City, for the
Judge S. S. Taylor of Chemung presented
the name of John U. Stanchfleld.

Democracy of New York anew to the prin

New York. Sept. 12. United States Sen
ator James K. Jones, chairman of the Dem
ocratic National Committee, nrrlved In this
city last nlght.and held a brief conference
with ex-Governor Stone of Sllssourt and
Congressman Richardson, minority leader
In the House of Representatives.
In an Interview he expressed satisfaction
with the rpsnlf nf tliA clortlmi In Vjirmnnr
and Maine. He said he had made no estl- J
mates as to what States the Democrats are J
UKeiy to carry in tee November election
In case the percentages of Republican de
crease and Democratic Increase should be
maintained in the general election. He
added that he would not make any predic
tions as to what States the Democrats ex
pect to carry because be could not tell
how large a vote the Republicans expect
to get in States like Ohio. Indiana and
He called attention to the fact that four
years ago the vote In Ohio reached the un-heord-of
proportion of one to three and a
fraction of the population of that State.
Heretofore, he explained. If the vote aver
aged ono to every five of the population
everybody considered that a full vote bad
beta Polled. The new Ohio ratio of one to
every three and a fraction made it extreme
ly difficult to estimate what might happen
In the States of the Sllddle West this year.
However, he hopes that the Democrats will
carrv Ohio. Indiana and Illinois.
Asked whether the issue of expansion "Vrlll
not prevent the Democrats from carrying
any of tho Pacific Coa.-t States, Mr. Jones
said that while It Is true that some of
the shipping interests having a direct In
terest In the trade of the Orient are In
favor of expansion, on the other hand the
wcrklnsmen of the Far West are opposed
to anything looking to the admission of the
Filipinos Into competition with American

the depot when he arrived, and his march
to the hotel was one continued ovation.
Sir. Stevenson was accompanied by James
Todd. Democratic candidate for Attorney
General: Thomas SI. Jett, candidate for
Congress in the Eighteenth District; Chas.
Rocschensteln, editor of the Edwardsville
Intelligencer, and J. L. Pickering of Spring
field. The meeting at the City Hall was called
to order by Judge Silas Cook at 8:15, and
when he introduced Sir. Stevenson the au
dience arose en masse and cheered for ful
ly fifteen minutes.
Mr? una .Name Cheered.
After order was restored Sir. Stevenson
began his talk. Ho was in good voice and
at once plunged Into the Issues of the cam
paign. Once during his talk he mentioned
the name of Hran, and It was ten minutes
before order could be restored. In referring
to the Hers he said:
"Clearly the Democratic Convention has
expressed its sympathy with the burghers
of the South African Republics in their
heroic attempt to maintain free govern
ment. It Is not strange that those who have
kept the political faith of the author of the
Declaration of Independence should express
their abhorrence at the effort of a great
European Power to subjugate a people
whose only crime Is a death struggle to
maintain their liberties. Only those who
believe that our own country has outgrown
the doctrines of the fathers are in sympathy
with England's attempt to establish mon
archy upon the ruins of Republics."
Touching the trust question, Sir. Steven
son raid. In part: "Can any sane man be
lieve that the trust evil Is one that will
cure itself, or that Its destruction will be
compassed by those to whom It has
brought princely fortunes? If so. let him
point to a single honest attempt of Re
publican otflclals to enforce the laws now
upon our statute books against the most
stupendous commercial evil known to any
period of our history. The Democratic party
stands pledged to an unceasing warfare
against private monopoly in every form, but
with its friends again In power, what hope
is held out for tho future?"
Spirit of CommerclallHin.
On imperialism he said: "This policy. In
spired by tho greedy spirit of commercial
Ism, has embroiled our Government In an
unnecessary war, sacrificed valuable lives
and placed the American Republic In deadly
antagonism to our former allies in their
efforts to secure their liberties. For the
first time In our history, we are boldly con
fronted with the question of Imperialism
the spirit of Empire. Every time a laboring
man of the Old World went to work, he
carried a soldier on his back, and the men
of this country would soon be In a like con
dition If the policy of Imperialism was
successful next November."
In closing his remarks, he said: "We are
told that our Republic Is now to become
a world power. In the highest sense, with
the Declaration of Independence as Its cor
nerstone, f.'lms been In all Its past a world
power. It has been the lofty ideal to all
llberty-lovlng people; the model for all
builders of 'Republics for more than a cen
tury." At the conclusion Sir. Steven:on was
given u ovation that lasted live minutes,
and not until lie had left the hall was order
restored. He departed for llloomington, hW
home, at ll:3u. and will speak at Havanj,
James Todd, candidate for Attorney Gen
eral, and. Congressman Thomas SI. Jett of
Hlllsboro made short talks to the crowd.
Hefore the meeting adjourned Judge Cook
made the announcement that William J.
liryan would be in East St. Louis next Sat
urday afternoon, and address the neonle
from the front of the City Hall, and that .
Itellevllle next Wednesday. .

Washington. Sept. 12. The result of the

The general tone of comment was: "The

"The story of Republican losses and Dem

Washington, Sept. 12. No further hostili
ties of consequence will occur In the Trans
vaaL This Is tho opinion or high officials
of tho administration, based upon a dis
patch received this evening from Captain
Karl Relchmann, Seventeenth Infantry, who
Joined the Boer troops last spring- as the
American military attache.
This Is Captain Relchmann's message, as
made public by the War Department:
"Lorenzo Slarquez, SepL 11. Adjutant
General, Washington: Events have required
departure of attaches from the Transvaal.
Captain Relchmann was directed to re
turn at once to the United States and to
report to the Adjutant OeneraL He will
complete what will be practically a military
history of the Boer War.
No confirmation of the press report that
President Kruger has reached Lorenzo Slar
quez has been received by the State De
partment, but the authorities would not be
surprised should It turn out that President
Kruger and Captain Relchmann arrived at
that point simultaneously.
The flight of Kruger to Portuguese terri
tory can have but one meaning the aban
donment ot the Boer cause and that the
cause Is lost is shown conclusively by Cap
tain Relchmann's message, which Indicates,
in the opinion ot the authorities, that no
further operations are likely, or, if they do
occur, they will be of minor importance.
It Is expected that Great Britain will find
It necessary to keep'her army In South
Africa at It present size for some time to
come, but If the surrender is complete It
may be available for use elsewhere, and
this fact may have an Important bearlns
on the Chinese situation.
LOMJOX SAYS ALL II OVER.
Lorfdon, Sept. 12. The flight of President
Kruger from what Is now designated as the
Vaal River Colony, and his arrival last
night at Lorenzo Slarques, as cabled to the
Associated Press this morning. Is regarded
here as Indicative of an early end ot the
hostilities In South Africa. Another message
from Lorenzo Marques says the Transvaal
State officials accompanied President Kru
ger Into Portuguese territory.
Significant also, although It Is uncon
firmed, is the announcement that General
Botha, the Boer Commander-In-Chler, Is
making overtures to surrender, and the
question whether the burghers will now fol
low the usual course or beaten armies and
lay down their arms or formally declare In
favor of guerrilla warfare, must ba speedily

Long Dispatch From Roberta.
The British War Office has Issued a long
report from Lord Roberts on the treatment
of British prisoners ot war at Pretoria,
founded on the report of the court of In
quiry. Briefly. Lord Roberts declares that the
treatment of the officer was fair, but that
the food of the men was quite inadequate
and of Inferior quality. He denounces the
treatment of the colonial prisoners as crim
inals, and says the Inhuman treatment of
sick prisoners throws the greatest discredit
on the authorities then at Pretoria.
Te prevalence of sickness and many
deaths of prisoners. Lord Roberts adds, are
attributable to the lack of proper food,
medicines and accommodations, and the
neglect of ordinary sanitary precautions.
