Prince China and Li Hung Ghana
Draw Up Proposals lor
DOCUMENT IS RECEIVED
Considerable Alteration Believed
Necessary Before It Is Acceptable,
Minister Conger Transmits It to
Washington Conference in the
White House Chinese Minister
Summoned United States Will
Probably Act Favorably on
France's Last Note.
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated rre.
London, Oct. IS. Prince Ching nnd
LI Hung Chang have finally succeeded
In drawing up ti joint proposal for a
fcettlemont In China. That has been
received by the powers. Beyond the
fact that it Is likely to require con
siderable alteration before proving ac
ceptable, nothing in respect to the
actual terms of It can be ascertained.
The Chinese minister here, Sir Chili
Chen Lo Feng Lull, professes Ignor
ance of such proposal, but it can be
said definitely that it is engaging tho
attntlon of the British foreign office.
Washington, Oct. IS. After three
days' silence, Mr. Conger, tho United
States minister in Pekin, cabled to
tho state department today, transmit
ting the substance of certain proposi
tions a'dvanced by Prince Ching nnd
LI Hung Chang as a. basis for the
conduct of negotiations for a settle
ment of the Chinese trouble.
While the text of Mr. Conger's com
munication is not made public, it is
believed that the Chinese propositions
are in the nature of counter proposals
to the French note, and proceeding
on the theory that what has been
done in the matter of tho punishment
of the guilty officials in China is suf
ficient to meet the demands from the
powers in that respect.
The Chinese minister, Mr. Wu, call
ed at tho stato department today,
by appointment, and had a long con
ference with Secretary Hay. The sec
retary previously had spent an hour
with tho president at the white house.
Presumably Mr. Conger's communica
tion was discussed, and It is believed
that, Mr. Wu was called to the depart
ment to throw llgjht on some of the
United States Favorable'.
It is believed that the United States
government will take favorable action
on the latest proposition of the French
government. That contemplates the
opening of peace negotiations with
China on the points on which the pow
ers have agrees, .saving to the minis
ters in Pekln the details of working
out a further agreement on those
points on which tho powers made res
ervations. The basis of negotiation
would be the French note delivered on
October 4, togethei -with the replies of
the other powers. That would practic
ally mean that two negotiations would
have to be conducted at the same time,
one concerning the points of agree
ment, which would have to be adjusted
with China, und the other by the min
isters at Pekln with a view to reach
ing an ngreement to be submitted to
China. It Is felt thut theru would bo
no Inconsistency In that double work
nnd it has the advantage of getting the
peace negotiations actually under way.
In case of a favorable reply to France
it is probable that steps would bo
taken to .designate plenipotentiaries,
for, up to this time, Mr. Conger Is act
ing only as minister, and Mr. Rockhlll
as special commissioner, (to make in
quiries and there is no authorization
to either of them to conduct peace ne
gotiations. Whether special plenipo
tentiaries would be named or addi
tional powers given to Mr. Conger or
Mr. Rockhlll Is not known.
Probably tho most serious obstacle In
tho way of peace negotiations is the
absence of tho Chinese imperial family
from Pekln, and tho doubt that creates
of the approval of tho work ot tho
Chinese plenipotentiaries. While tho
latter asbort that they Have full power,
tho governments of Europe, tho United
States and Jupan have held that tho
presence of tho emperor In Pekln Is an
almost Indispensable requisite toward
giving tho negotiations completo ein
cuey. If ho returned to tho capital the
emperor might establish his authority
nnd freo It from the Intrigues and anti
foreign Influences which hnvo for the
last two years practically nullified his

Archbishop Ireland Gives a State
ment of His Impressions Ex
hibits of American Section
More Worthy Than Ever.
By Exclushc Wire from The Associated Tress.
Now York, Oct. 18. Archbishop Ire
land, of St. Paul, just returned from
an extended trip abroad, gave out to
day a statement of his impressions
of the showing made ty this country
nt the Paris exposition.
The efforts of American exhibitors,
accentuated by the active manage
ment of Mr. Peck, more than com
pensate, he said, for the appropriation
made by congress.
The exhibits In the American section
put this country in a more worthy
light than it has occupied heretofore.
The only crltcism to be made, in his
opinion, is that in most cases artistic
effect lias been sacrificed for plain
utility. This, said the archbishop, re
sulted in a failure to attract as other
wise might have been the case.
The number of awards made to
American exhibitors should make the
people here proud of the part taken
by the United States. The most plead
ing feature he noted xvas the Ameri
can pavilion, at which all Americans
were made to feel at home. But the
general exhibits of this country, its
resources were better known than ever
and the result xvas already seen by an
Increased demand for our products.
"A new era," said the archbishop, "has
set in for us in commercial and diplo
matic relations; and with tho opening
of tho twentieth century America
steps Into the front rank of nations."
The work of Sir. Peck, he added, has
been generously appreciated by the

By Exclurho Wire from The Associated Press,
Indianapolis, Oct. 18. At Tomlinson
hall tonight Senator Beverldgo ad
dressed a monster mass meeting of
young men and directed his remarks
especially to tho first voters. He said:
In this campaign more than one iiilllio-i )oung
men will cnll't under the political banner under
which the Initial force of their first vote and
nil the influences that bind men to party will
cause them to march for the leniaindir of their
lives. It is lo these young men that I spcalj
tonight. It is to their future that I appeal.
There are natural developments that determine
uiu lines ot cieaeagc upon wncii political par
tics are formed. The elements among the people
which are constructiic, the elements that build,
plant, plan and advance, gradually crystallize
into one parly ;t and against that party the ele
ments that destroy, disintergiate and retreat,
cr.i .stallize into another party, Xo matter what
nanus) these parties may bear, thl Is the nature
and purpose of each construction on the one
baud, destruction on the other.
The question for tho millions of young men,
Mho in this campaign aro going to enlist in
one of our two great political parties is, Where
can they find the moat congenial, mol natural,
most helpful and most hopeful comrades? In
the ranks of which party can they, during the
period of their actlic manhood, bcft adinnce
the power and authority of the American people?
In the ranks of which party can they help to
carry the American flag farther and farther up
tho heights of glory? Our nation is young. Our
country is young. Our flag is oung. Our dls
tiny is the destiny of the youth among nations.
Tho question for the young men of this republic
to decide is whether they will enlist Willi the
lleptibllcan party, which is harmonious xiith all
thoc natural elements of vouth. of uroirrev,
and of power, and whose foieign policy is the
policy of American advance, or with tho Demo
cratic party, which is at war with every con
htmctlvo development of ,V3ur ciiiliaitlon, and
whose foieign policy is the policy ot American

Let us take the is'uc of money as an illus
tration. It was not long ago that both partb's
xvcre affected by fiatisiu. But the Itepublican
party progresscc). Tho Democratic party re
mained stationary. The Itepublican party per
ceived that constantly und steadily this nation's
business- was incicasing, and that, therefore. It
ought to have money of tho highest standard
x'aluo known to commerce; and therefore we de
clared for gold. The Democratic paity stood by
tho flat idea, and declared that fifty cents worth
of silver cnild be undo a dollar by stamping it
as such. The Itepublican party perceived that
wheic business transactions and amounts of ex
change arc large, denomination of money should
be large; and that the email exchanges in daily
business fluuld be discharged by the smaller
denominations of money. And so tho Itepublican
p.'.rty applied the philosophy of siibsidhiy money
to silver, giving to tint metal its juit and nut.
uial plate and lo gold its just and natural place.
Tho Dcmociatio paity resisted this doctrine of
financial advance, adopted by every 'itl.cr pic
grtssivc nition of tho world. The It.-pulilhjii
party discovered that vvlu-n the farmer has his
crops to nuiket, a laiger supply of money Is
needed in every ngricultui.il ili-triet of the coun
try; and when these exigencies of lnilncs.s,
caused by the xciy natuie of production and
exchange, haxo ceased, thii xolumo of money is
no longer needed, rnd as an excess of riicula
tlou unused is alwjju u source of lhuiicl.il
weakness, the ltepiibllcaii party lias attempted
to provide and has l.vuely provided for this
iiiiniedl.il ii ai'd particular need of builncss by
Loiistiiictlvc Icjhl itlon. The Democratic party
did not even su.'gest a remedy for either, but
merely opposed the proposition advanied by tlio
Hi public aii5. And today then; is not a on
sliuctlve programme of finance in the entire
Ikiuotratlu ciced. In llninuc, the Democratic
prcgrnnuiiu is a prngiauiinii of destruction iiiid
its leader is the greatest iconoclast America lias

Just as l.ugcr denominations of money arc

for xeais all over the world a tendency tonauli
