RUMOR
Says That French and English
Minister at Peking Have
Been Murdered.
IS NO CONFIRMATION.
Tho Report It Is Said Comes From the
British Embassy at Paris.
ARMY AND NAVAL AUTHORITIES
In Germany Continue Their Deliberation!
ThU Moraine Concerning the Send
log of Farther Troop to
Chlna-Moblllratlon of
13,000 Troopi.
CNows-Democrat Leased Wire Service.
Paris, July 3. It Is rumored that the
BritlBh embassy here has been notified
that the French and English ministers
afi Peking have been murdered. The
embassy refuses to confirm tho report.
DELIBERATIONS CONTINUED.
Berlin, July 3. The emperor, Count
Von Bulow, and military and naval
authorities continued their delibera
tions this morning at Wllhelm's Haven,
-concerning the sending of further
' troops to China. Nothing has been
learned of the result. Tho Berliner
Zeltung states that the emperor has
ordered tho mobilization of 12,000 men to
go to China. It Is regarded doubtful if
Germany will declare war on China,
though that would please the press.
Tho emperor is reported to have said
that a division of China was not intend
ed, merely restitution and tho estab
lishment of a strong government.
WILL SEND TROOPS.
WUhelm Haven, July 3. The war
council sitting hero under Emperor Wil
liam's chairmanship has resolved to
send Immediately to China one division
of land troops, 4 regiments of Infantry
and sixteen companies of pioneers, a
quota of 15,000.
FIGHTING AT TIEN TSIN.
London, July 3. There Is still no relief
from the suspense caused by the cer
tainty of the situation in China, and
particularly in Peking. The relief force
of Russians which has been variously
reported as proceeding to and arriving
at Peking Is a myth. There is no relief
lor foreigners in Chinese capital In sight,
According to late dispatches fighting
is again proceeding at Tien Tsln. It Is
evident that until order is restored
there no expedition can start to Peking.
Meanwhile from the most authorative
.sources comes the report of the minis
ters' desperate situation. Eight days
ago they were running short of provi
sions, and legation guards had almost
exhausted ammunition. Word is hourly
expected here that the worst has hap
pened. It is the constantly growing
impression that Japan will be called
upon to furnish forces Immediately nec
essary to control the situation In China.

YOUR WILY UNCLE MARK.
Such a Funny Joke He Played
On the Good Peoi le Of
Canton, Ohio.
Cleveland Press: There's a Joke on
the people of Canton.Uncle Mark play
ed it. He played It cleverly, and the
aforesaid Democrats are In the sad pre
dicament of the man whose wife used
to grab up the baby and hold It before
her when hubby was Inclined to take a
punch at her. He didn't like to hurt
his baby, so he had to let her alone.
Canton doesn't want to hurt her ba
by, either. Wm. McKlnley, president
of the United States, Is the pride and
Joy of the Stark county capital. So,
naturally, when Canton people see a
rattling, rousing, patriotic, soldier-honoring,
eagle plumed Fourth of July cel
ebration turned Into a wild whoop of
praise for the president and a XXXX
Republican ratification gleefest they
can't do much but grin and bear It, and
Bwear at Hanna when nobody Is listen
ing.
In March, 1899, Mayor Rice, Demo
crat, and the Democratic council of
Canton, decided that no county feat
was the teal thing without a Spanish
wa: cannon.In this view tney had the
perfect coincidence of Judije Wni. R.
Day, who personally conducted and at
proper time ended the war, so It was
decided the cannon must be had. It
was secured.
Then It was decided to unveil said
war trophy July 4, 1900, and to do It In
a manner befitting the day, the gift and
the growing town of Canton. It was
decided to make the day particularly a
glowing tribute to the Spanish war
soldiers, and, generally, a whirlwind
of patriotic enthusiasm for liberty,
equality 'and the blessings of a free
government.
Now It's whispered, In dark blue
whispers, In the byways and corners of
Canton, that certain Democrats and
even certain Republicans had It all llg
ured out how McKlnley would be In
Canton Just about this time, and they
were wicked enough to dream that this
very celebration would loom up, con
sidering the plight ot the masticated
but not assimilated Filipinos and the
free Cubans who aren't free, as a re
buke to the president.
They, In common with the other Can
tonlans who simply expected a rousing
old Fourth of July celebration, reck
oned without Uncle Marcus. He saw
something happening In Canton with
out Wm. McKlnley right in tho middle
of the stage without even a couple of
flower girls or a burst of spontaneous
enthusiasm for prosperity and he
shuddered. After one shudder and a
moment of meditation, he gave out an
Interview In part as follows: .
"On the Fourth of July Mr. McKlnley
will probably come to Ohio to attend
the grand demonstration In his honor
to be given by the people of Canton."
That settled It. The scenery began to
whirl and the grand transformation
scene was on. The Fourth of July be
came McKlnley day, shouts for freedom
became whoops for expansion, the eagle
Happed his wings for the ship subsidy
bill Instead of the declaration of In
dependence, and all Canton will howl
not for free America, but for more
mauser-loaded islands of the southern
seas.
A Pleasant Surprise.
Miss Jennie Sheets was agreeably
sui prised at her home near Falrhope
Saturday evening. A number of her
friends met about 9 o'clock and march
ed quietly up to the house, not being
detected until they got within the
house. The surprise was complete. The
evening was spent playing games and
dancing. Music was furnished by the
Mount Horeb orchestra, Amlel
Gladleux being floor manager, and
Irwin Bowers master of ceremonies,
with the assistance of William Elsass
tho star dancer, so everything was
complete.
Tho merry making continued until
the wee sma' hours when a bountiful
lunch was served, after which the
guests departed for their several
homes. Those present were Messrs. H.
J. Mohler, Walter McCleary, Irwin
Bowers, Clarence Hershey, Lloyd
Stevens, John Berchblll, Calvin Garner,
Samuel H. Relnhold, Geo. Helser,
Howard H. Haverland, Wm. Elsass,
Amlel Gladleux, Jacob Rldder, Frank
Rhoden, Walter Harter. The Misses
were Sarah Elsass, Cora May, Alice
Whoopengarner, Emma Strahm, Emma
Gladleux, Emma Hershey, Susie Day
hoff, Mary Elsass, Iva Smith, Ora
Smith, Lizzie Little, Sadie Hoover,
Alice Stoner, Emma Brechblll and Mary

Columbiana County's Population.
Salem News: The Buckeye State
estimates the population of the county
at 76,691, and banks its reputation on
the approximate accuracy of these
figures. The estimated Increase In the
rural districts Is placed at 1,000. This
Is probaly much too high. In 1890 the
population In many country districts
in the county showed a material de
crease and tho present census Is likely
to show a similar falling off. Cities and
towns Increase In population largely
at the expense of the contiguous coun
try districts.
It Continues to Grow.
That the News-Democrat Is appre
ciated by the people of Loulsvillo Is ev
idenced by the fact that ten new sub
scriptions were received today from that
place which shows that tho paper Is
meeting wlfi the hearty mippcrt of the
people, generally, where It circulates,
and that Its progressive policy under
new management Is generally endorsed.
The News-Democrat is not only grow
ing In Louisville but In many other
towna In the county, as well as In Can
ton. The llrft Is being largely aug
mented from time to time.
HO PARTITION
OFCHINA.
Judge Day Declares the Empire
Will Remain Intact.
THE PRESENT RULERS
Are Stroue Enough to l'ut Down the In
surrection Slgnlllcant State
ment After Seeing the
1'retldent.
Chester D. Potter, staff correspondent
of the Pittsburgh Commercial Gazette,
who Is here reporting the doings of the
president, secured an Interview with
Judge William R. Day, Just after the
latter had seen President McKlnley and
talked with him, Mr. Potter tells of tho
Interview and "Its significance in the
Commercial Gazette today, as follows:
Judge Day Is one of the few men who
have voluntarily laid aside a cabinet
portfolio In the midst ot a highly suc
cessful official career, and Is dlntln
gulshed for his frankness In giving his
real reasons for resigning, viz., that he
could not afford the ofllce.Judge Day
was with the president lastt night. I
called upon him later and asked him
why McKlnley was stronger as a presi
dential candidate now than he was four
ytnr ago. He smiled and said he would
be most happy to consider the In
quiry were it not for the fact that hla
position precluded Its consideration.
I then asked him If he believed the
United States would be obliged to de
clare war against China. "I do not be
lieve there will be any war with China;
neither do I believe there Is to be a par
titioning of the Chinese empire, with a
tfllce for the various powers, as has been
discussed so much of late," said the
Judge. "In my opinion the present gov
ernment will be equal to the emergency
of suppressing the present outbreak and
dealing with the questions which will
arl--e afterwards. Heavy Indemnities
will have to be paid, and it Is my opinion
that China will not seek to evade the
legitimate responsibilities Incurred.
"There will have to be an assurance
that there will be no recurrence of such
disorders and that life and property
will be protected in the future. But
all this Is possible. I think the future
of China promises great things and that
she Is now In a process of commercial
and educational evolution that will
place her In a more advantageous posi
tion ns a world power. Japan may be
cited as a condition precedent.
"The United States stands second only
tb Great Britain In trade relations with
China, and our share Is 15 per cent,
of the total Imports of the empire.
China Is a great market for the Indus
trial products of the United States. It
Is one that must of necessity constantly
Increase."
"In case there should be a partition
ing of China, would the United States
want a slice?" the ex-secretary was
asked. "No, all wo want Is the mainte
nance of the 'open door' policy secured
by Secretary Hay equal right with all
other nations In trade relations. That
has been conceded. It Is very fortunate
for the United States that It has a foot
hold In the Orient at the present time.
Our possession of tho Philippines, with
military and naval bases, has afforded
great advantages. Had we not had
them there the situation, so far ns the
country's present participation In the
present Chinese question is concerned,
might have been much different, not
only from the home standpoint, but as
to the future ot China."
SMOKELESS PLANT
01 the Nail Trust Didn't Inter
est McXinley as He Passed
Through Salem.
Salem Herald: President McKlnley
and wife passed through here this
moinlng on train No. 9 enroute to Can
ton. They were In the Pullman car
"Grassmero," which was attached to
the iear of the train. There wus no
enthusiasm or hand clapping. Presi
dent McKlnley stood near a window of
the car. As the train sped by the sta
tion he bowed and tipped his hat.
None of the faithful were down to see
him pass through.
McKlnley did not see the smokeless
local plant of the American Steel and
Wlro company. If he did he wasn't
interested.
