The controversy on the relative merits of
the British and American baggage systems
has been revived by tho complaints of

In England. These, In turn, have called
forth protests asair.it favoring tho adoption
of tho check Eystem. Aa Englishman. who
visited America, writes to the Fall-Mail
Gazette, giving tec details of tho troubles
which he exporienced through tha loss of
Ids checks, the delay and the alleged Im
possibilities of obtaining compensation, de
claring the Americana tolerate any system,
however complicated, so long as it has the
f.ppearancc of being bualntfesllke. Most of
the detractors ot the check ay-stem miss a
point by devoting their arguments against
the delay In delivering baggage after Us
trrlval. It Is possible that the correspond
ence may accelerate the adoption of tume
form of the American system, for partly
through Ignoranco and partly through the
defects of the English system, no end ot
trouble and expense is undergone by tha
thousands who yearly cross the Atlantlo
through the loaa of baggage.

tanoyance and mystification, which was on

"There is an erroneous opinion in tho
press about Count von Waldert-ee's mission.
A number of Important tasks await him.
Above all ho mu.'t force Ctdna to submit
to the allied Powers' peaco conditions.
Moral suasion Is entirely wasted upon the
Chinese Government, which, far from be
ins humiliated hitherto, still Indulges in
the hopo of cheating thelites out of tha
fruits ot their victories by destroying the
harmony among them.
"Von Waldersee must arrange what mili
tary demonstrations are required; what
harbors and inland towns must be occu
pied: which points require expeditions, and
which troops may retire from Prkln. All
ths Powers are bound to this programme

the foreign dlpiomate will either be located
at a treaty port, perhaps Tien-Tcin, or else
Uiey will need large military protection.

How each of the Powers" separate demands
will be regulated and enforced is a different
matter. AU tho Powers mean to adhere lo

which has Just ended can be marked. It
bus been n good one. in every respect.
In the first place, tho officials of tbo Mu
nicipal Council of Paris have come to an
Intelligent decision. The mun!r.in.illtv has
abandoned the banquet which It had organ-
lzcd in rivalry with tfcat slven by the Gov
ernment to tho Mayors cf France. This
measure was necessitated by the Innumer
able refusals which were cent In. but In
politics, as In war. thcro Is no small merit
lit generals knowing when to fall back un
der tho presuro of circumstanoea, and
when to order retreats to avoid disasters.
The ofUciuls of the Municipal Council
would even have attracted ths sjasnathles
cf their enemies had they not felt obliged
to mask their retreat by accusing the Gov
ernment of having forbidden the banquet.
Their error Is manifest, for when the of
ficials of the Council rendered public their
renunciation ths employes uf tho city were
b:,1I working on preparations for the ban
quet. Now as tho employes are under tlie
orders of the Prefect, that is to fay, tho
Government, it cannot ba said that the lat

by women during that torrlble time of trial
and danger, when the little band of Euro

outer world, surrounded anu besieged by
Lavage hordes intent upon their massacre.
The Baroness, who is the daughter of a
popular dentist here, went to China with
her husband as a bride, a little mora than a
year ago, and by orders of the doctor had
left Pekln in order to return homo In view
of an inteiestlng event, When about to em
bark at Taku for Europe, she suddenly was
made aware of the danger by which her
husband and all the other Europeans at

in view of her brother's attitude toward the

tain amount of awkwardness in her enter
