famed Mair gteder throagh the erratic
action of last September's Alaskan

from Captain David Wallace, master of

Wednesday from an excursion voyage
Captain Wallace, as has been his custom
for the past sixteen or eighteen
years, sought 10 line up his ship across
the face of the glacier, but for the first
time in nearly two decades he scored
a failure. He was unable owing to a
great field of float ice, to get the vesw 1
closer than five miles from Alaska's
wondrous attraction, whose scenic
beauties have been gazed upon and admire
by tourists from the length and
breadth of the land.
"I never saw so much Ice," Captain
Wallace sold last night, discussing the
fitwnge phenomenon. "Forty-five miles
out front the glacier we encountered
stray chunks of iloat. and they gradually

Consider that ice floats but one-seventh

idea, of the enormous size of such a
chunk. There must have been 500 or

Borne of the Causes of the Chinese
Hatred of Foreigners Shown,
by a Merchant.
NEW YORK, June 30. Ernest De
Bavler, an exporter of Chinese goods,
who left the scenes of the present Borer
outbreak less than two months aco,
has arrived in this city on business.
Discussing tho present situation, he
said the Boxer society was formed of
malcontents, whose aim was to embarrass
the government by any means la
their power. Joined with them wera
many of the extreme conservative,
opposed to railroads and modern and
foreign ideas of all kinds.
JMr. De Bavler thinks the Empress
has been much misrepresented, and declares
she Is not blindly opposed to reform,
but understands the Chinese
character, and knows that it Is fatal
to try to proceed too rapidly. The Emperor
was a mere puppet in the hand
of a few extreme progressionists. He
also says that the people have a great
deal of justice in their hatred of foreigners.
Religious feeling has practically
nothing to do with, the case. The
people do not care enough about their
neighbors!-souls to become religion
fanatics. Trouble arises only when
civil privileges are affected, and the
missionaries, with the best intentions
In the world, are often at the bottom
'When a local mandarin imposes
taxes," continued Mr. De Bavler, "even
if they are excessive, the 'heathen
Chinese pay thei. The native Christians,
however, whenever they imagine -
taemselves ground down by unjust taxation,
run with their troubles to th
.nearest missionary. These missionaries,
instead of goln to the local mandarin,
as they should, talk the matter
ovr with him and make a satisfactory

wrRe to their satieeal, ministers
at Peking awl ask tsat redress be
obtained for the annates of their

to tfe which, ia
orier to avoid friction, ends the
by calling down the local mandarin
and reducing the Christians' taxes.
TJUS practice cannot fail to cause envy
awl jsakmsy against the native Christian,
who are thus, at the intercession
ot jerstga powers, tet on I row so much
of duties to in empire which the other
Chinaee have to perform, as there is no

GRiNDSOH'S mr. !
KictuiuD. va., Jan 39. The two
grandsons of Li Hung Chang the celebrated
Chinese statesman, arrived in
the city this morning at S o'clock, and
are at the Alhambra. Their names are ,
TaoYao Sung and TaoYuk Seng. They
came to Richmond with Dr. W. R. Lam - 4
both of Nashville. Tenn.. and have J
been since January at the Vanderbllt ,
University, where thev expect to re- ,
main for four or five years.
They were extremely courteous, but
rather reticent fn regard to the Boxer
movement in China. Owing to their
high position at home, they do not like
to discuss the matter, and say they
only know very little about it since
they left China, except what they see
In the papers and the occasional letters
they receive from home.
The two young men are not professing
Christians, but are Intellectually
convinced. They, however, hold to the
faith of their forefathers. They have
followed the American custom of wearing
their hair short and when asked
what they would do on their return to
the Celestial kingdom, in regard to
their locks, they promptly responded
they would let them grow. It is a little
fairy tale, so they say, that a Chinaman
cannot be shorn of his queue
and return to his native land.
These two brothers are from the
central part of China, Yang Chow, in
the most disturbed regions. They expressed
themselves as being pleased
with America and the people have met.
Their English is particularly good, and
they understand the language readilv.
