AFTER
Back Fire Set Against High
Charters for Wheat.
Railways Asked to Give a Keason
able Freight Rale to the
Base,
Owing to the fact that the wheat crop
of the Palouae country, ami in fact uf
all Eastern Washington, does not in the
harvest meet the fair promises ol earlj
Hummer, a concerted move of farmers
ami citizens in general bas been made
with a view of shipping wheat to ihe
east, an was done in 1893.
To make these shipment* the trans
continental railways with long hauls
mast make concessions in freight rates.
Concerted action in being taken by Un
people of the i'alouse country in this
regard. Petitions are out addressed to
the Northern Pacific, Great Northern,
I niou Pacific and Oregon Railway Jt'
Navigation railroads asking a rate of
not more than 2.", centH a bushel to
Chicago or 21 > cents to Duluth or Minne
apolis.
This petition is being thoroughly
circulated and the name of every man in
the Palonse ie solicited upon it. The
movement started at Pullman with
W. H. Harvey, C. N. Gaddis, Wilford
Allen and P. W. Chapman as a com
mittee to push it.
Colfax has taken it up in earnest and
a committee has taken the matter in
hand. The committee is c:jhi
poHed of (ieo. A. Chapman, Geo. II
Lennox, Oliver Hall, Dr. A. E. Stuht
Councilman J. It. Good, W. W. Waite,
Julian Howard and A. Coolidge. They
have addressed the following appeal to
the people arid urge that the circulated
petition be signed by all.
Against Hi«h Charters
The Colfax committee has sent out
the following circular letter:
"Collax, Washington, Aug. 4, 1900.—
Owing to the present low price for wheat
and the high expense for harvesting the
present crop, together with the light
yield in some quartern, it seems neces
sary for us in this section to take some
concerted action to obtain relief in order
to give v profit to our people from the
present crop. One cause of the abnor
mally low price of wheat is the high price
of charters at the coast shipping points,
these high charters being caused, first,
by the scarcity of vessels, many being
engaged in war service, and, secondly,
by a combination of shippers who have
cornered all available charters and arbi
trarily raised the rates from .'55 shillings
per ton to 4"> s hillings per ton, making
a difference to us of nearly 8 cents per
bushel. In order 10 avoid this hardship,
we are undertaking to obtain from the
railways entering this section, reduced
rates eastward, so that the bulk of our
grain may find an eastern market, if
we can obtain the rates we are endeavor
ing to, it will make a difference in favor
of the wheat grower of about 11 cents
per bushel. Our purpose is to have pre
pared petitions to the railways, and we
enclose herewith three petitions, one to
each railway, which we would ask you
to circulate and obtain signatures upon
in youi neighborhood. Paste the peti
tion on a sheet of legal-cap or other
suitable paper and have each man sign
all three petitions. Get some good man
to do the work if you can not do it and
have the petitions generally signed and
return them to the undersigned com
mittee at Colfaz not later than August
20th, addressing them to (J. A. Chap
man, chairman."
Pullman's Petition
The Pullman committee has tent out
the following appeal:
"Owiug to the very light crop through
out Eastern Washington, coupled with
low prices and poor prospects for better
ones, we need relief of eoine kind in order
to avoid a general financial depression.
Spring wheat, oats and barley are not
over half a crop and in some sections
will not even pay to harvest. All fall
grain from Spokane to Walla Walla
that we have heard of has fallen from
2~> per cent to 50 per ceut below the
estimated yield. Everything pertaining
to the harvesting of the crop is high.
We must have relief. Our only apparent
hope is in the railroad giving us a re
duced rate that will enable an eastern
movement of our grain. The railroads
are in a position, owing to the failure of
crops in Wisconsin, Minnesota and the
Dakotas, to assist us and at the same
time benefit themselves. By concerted
action we may get pressure enough to
bear upon the railroads to heed the re
quest of the enclosed petition. This
petition will be sent to every business
center in Eastern Washington. You
will find enclosed three sets, one to each
of the railroads tapping this territory.
It will be necessary for each man to sign
all three petitions' Paste the petitions
on a sheet of legal cap, or other suitable
paper, and have them signed by all of
the business men and farmers in your
community. We want large petitions
from each Venter. If you have not time
to atteDd to the matter, eet some good,
live man to see that it is generally signed
and returned to the committee at Pull
man not later than August 20th. There
is no business man in Eastern Wash
ington who cannot afford to give this
matter bis time and attention, for if the
petition is heeded it means thousands of
dollars to Eastern Waenington, as the
rate asked would add lie to every
bushel of grain shipped. We have only
a short time to present this matter, so
must act energetically and promptly."
Petition to Railways.
Following is the petition heading ad
dressed to the various railway manace
ments, and which the people are urged
to sign wherever found:
"We, the undersigned, citizens of East
ern Washington and patrons of your
road, respectfully petition and represent:
That being heavy shippers, our interests
are closely identified with yours; that
during the present season owing to the
low price of grain, and the high price of
labor, sacks, twine, and all things per
taining to placing ourgrain on the mar
ket, we will have nothing left after the
pale of the 11)00 crop, unless we get re
lief of some kind; that this condition
would materially decrease the incoming
and outgoing freight in this section for
several years to come: that owing to
the present freight rate from this section
to the coast, coupled with high charters
caused by foreign wars, we can see no
relief in view unless your road would de
clare an emergency and assist us in this
crisis by making an emergency rate on
wheat of not more than 25 cents per
bushel to Clii.-nyo.or 20cents per bushel
tp Dulnth, Minneapolis and St. Paul:
that your petitioners would greatly ap
preciate such action aud know that only
through such a measure will Eastern

MISERY AND SMALLPOX.
Garfielci Man at Nome Giyes it a
Black Kye.
E. E. Steele, who left this place for
Cape Nome last spring, writes to his
friends warning them to stay away from
that country, says the (Jairfield Enter
prise. He says "there is nothing at
Nome but misery aud smallpox." Steel,
with two other men, secured a boat and
the trio have gone up the coast to the
new diggings reported to be rich, lie is
thoroughly disgtibted with the country
and uses strong terms in denouncing
the fraud perpetrated on the people who
were induced to go there. **
J. T. Perm has received a letter from
hi 3 son-in-law, who went to Nome early
last spring, and he, too, paiuts a gloomy
picture of the country and the outlook.
He says the country is overrun, the dig
gings are exhausted, disease is rampant
—smallpox, typhoid fever and pneu
monia being epidemic—the people are
without work and many of them with
out money. One captain said be had
over 500 applications from stranded
men who desired to work their passage
back to civilization. He says people are
actually starving and unless the govern
ment takes action to relieve them there
will be terrible suffering and thousands
of deaths. Crime, disease and suicide
run rampant. Vast piles of valuable
machinery costing hundreds of thous
ands of dollars are lying on the beach
half covered with drifting sand. It
would be difficult to conceive a more
gloomy picture than that painted in
this letter which is confirmed by reports
now reaching the press from various
sources.
Chaffee Tells About It.
Washington, Aug. 7.—The war de
partment has received the following ca
blegram from General Chaffee: Tientsin,
Aug. 3.—A conference today decided on
the battle Sunday. The Chinese are en
trenched east and west through Pei
Tsang. The rest of the Chinese are pro
tected by flooded ground practically un
assailable. Japanese, English and
American forces, about 10,000 strong,
attacked the Chinese right west of the
river in flank. Other forces, Russian
and French, about 4000 strong, attacked
on the opposite tide between the river
and the railroad. The Chinese position
is apparently strong. An army of 30,
--000 is reported between Pc Bane and
Yang Tsun on crossing of the road to
Pei Ho. Yang Tsun is the objective
point. Our force is 2000 and battery.
Conemaugh has arrived. The Sixth
cavalry was left at Tientsin for a guard
of the city and is awaiting mounts. The
ministers were safe on the 28th of July.

FOUGHT A BIG BATTLE
Allies Ran Up Against the Chi-
l^ost Twelve Hundred Men, IJut
They Sent the Chinese Kit
ing Over the Road.
Washington Aug. o.—The allies are
advancing on Pekin; a great battle has
been fought, in which the international
forces suffered a loss of 1200, and the
Chinese are believed to have lost many
thousand soldiers; and the routed Chi
nese army is retreating. This, in brief,
is the startliug news received today from
United States naval officers at Cbefoo.
I p to a late hour European govern
ments had received no confirmatory in
formation, but the news is accepted as
authentic by the war and navy depart
ments in Washington. The dispatches
are as follows:
"Chefoo Aug. o.— Bureau of Naviga
tion, Washington: The British Fame
reports unolficially an engagement at
Pei Tsang, on Sunday morning, from .'}
until lo o'clock. The allied loss in
killed and wounded, was 1200, chiefly
Russian and Japanese. The Chinese are
retreating. TAU88IO."
"Chefoo, Aug. G—Bureau of Naviga
tion, Washington: An official report,
believed to be reliable, states that about
10.000 allies heavily engaged the Chi
nese at Pei TsaDg at daylight on the
sth. Rjemey."
CONSIDER, NEWS RELIABLE.
Insiders at Washington Not Sur-
prised With Fight.
Washington, Aug. C—The announce
ment received through Rear Admiral
Itemey and Commander Tauesig of re
ported heavy fighting on the river be
yond Tientsin was the news of interest
in the Chinese situation. Little doubt
was expressed at the navy department
that the news was substantially correct.
It is probable a later report may reduce
the list of casualties among the interna
tional forces; but it is evident that the
move on l'ekin is at lost fairly under
way, and that strong opposition has
been encountered. The war department
officials, who have been reticent for sev
eral days ac to news from the seat of
war, admitted today when the naval
dispatches were received that the an
nouncement of the battle was not un
expected.
Opinion among the various officials
now in Washington is somewhat divided
ac to just what is presaged by today's
events. The more optomistic are in
clined to think that such a severe blow
as the Chinese must have received at Pei
Tsang will result in the speedj disinte
gration of the forces now opp jsiug the
march of the international coljmn. In
line with this prediction it was prophe
sied that the Chinese government would
find means to send the ministers from
Pekin under escort, and thus stave off
the advance upon the capital.
On the other hand, a number of offi
cers in a position to judge equally well
held thut the tight at Pei Tsang was
only the beginning of a strenuous re
sistance that would be continued to the
gates of Pekin or beyond, it was urged
in support of this view that the Chinese
had a hundred men to lose against one
of the allies; that they were well armed
with modern guns and had apparently
an abundance of ammunition.
It is stated that much apprehension
exists among those conversant with Ori
ental affairs at the reappearance in
Pekin politics of that rabid and anti
foreign fanatic, Li Ping lleng. It is un
derstood that his appearance in Pekin
affairs may have had something to do
with the Shanghai rumors of Li Hung
Chang's suicide. It is certain that with
Li Ping lleng and Prince Tuan in con
trol of the defacto government in China
a religious war of dervish-like fanaticism
probably will be waged against all for
eigners and friends ot the more liberal
Chinese statesmen.
Guns From Manila.
The war department is in receipt of a
dispatch from Geueiul McArthur an
nouncing that he has shipped additional
artillery supplies to Taku for use in the
Chinese campaign. These supplies in
clude several gatling guns, and the re
mainder of the rifle and howitzer siege
train from Manila, which up to date has
remained useless in the Philippines on
account of the bad roads.
How much better General Chaffee may
be able to handle the siege guns through
the almost impassable rice swamps of
China no one at the war department was
willing to guess, but his recent dispatch
contained an urgent appeal for more ar
tillery, and he is getting it. The experts
at the war department say that if it
comes to a bompardment of Pekin these
tive-inch rides and seven-inch howitzers,
with their enormous bursting charges of
high explosives, will be the most effec
tive battering weapons in the interna
tional column.
In Rice Swamps of China.
Washington, Aug. G.—According to
the information in possession of the war
department, the town of Pei Teang is at
the head of tidewater on the Pei Ho
river, between 11 and 12 miles by road
beyond Tientsin. It is a village of mud I
huts, of considerable size, but not w ailed, j
The river at this point is not navigable
by anything larger than a good-sized
steam launch, and it is thought that
the troops probably reached there in
email boats towed by the naval launches.
The country along the river between Pc- j
kin and Tientsin is a low alluvial plain, !
almost impassable for wheeled vehicles j
in the wet season, and is under quite a \
high state of cultivation. It presents !
no natural defensive features, and the
war department knows of no strategic '
reason why the Chinese should have :
made a stand there, rather than any of ;
the other dozen viilages east of the
walled town of Tung Chow, where is j
stored an immense amount of provisions, \
upon which the city of Pekin would have
to depend in case of a Biege.
From the fact that the engagement
lasted seven and a half hours it is argued
in the department that either the Chinese
must have been heavily entrenched or
that there was an immense horde of them
to so stubbornly contest the advance of
the 16,000 international troops. It is
figured by military experts that a loss
of 1200 killed and wounded on the part
of the allies probably means a loss of
from three to six times as many by the
Chinese.
It is possible that a battle of this mag
nitude may break the resistance of the
Chinese to the advance of the foreign
nese Nation.
column, but on the other hand it it
possible that this may be one of a large
pomber of places on the roa.l that have
been entrenched with a view to falling
back and contesting the foreign advance,
so as to delay as long as possible the
arrival of the foreigners at Pekin.
: I Qless the opposition suddenly breaks
I down, the military experts look for a
desperate engagement when the troop*
reach the walled city of Tung Chow,
which ik said to be even more favorably
located for purposes of defense than was
lientsin.
The position of the United States dip
lomatically remains unchanged. This
government will not consent to the re
moval of the ministers and foreigners
from Pekin until there is free communi
cation by the powers with their ministers.
-Nor will this government consent to
communicate in plain language alone,
but insists that cipher messages must
pass freely between Minister Conger and
our state department. It is emphati
cally stated that unless such messages
are exchanged the United States can
not know beyond question that the
messages were not garbled and both the
I nited States government and the min
isters misled.
There seems to be no doubt about the
safety of the ministers at Pekin for the
present, and that they will remain where
they will be able to protect themselves
and will not be induced to accept any
offer of the Chinese government to escort
them to Tientsin until they have had
communication with their governments.
Confidence is expressed, however, that
the Chinese government will soon see
the necessity of accepting the terms laid
down in Secretary Hay's note to Consul
doodnow,
It is stated that if all the international
force* in the vicinity of Taku can be
landed and the supplies brought up,
there is sufficient force to overcome any
army which the Chinese may bring for
ward to prevent the march on Pekin. It
also is believed at the war department
that the information received through
the navy department of a battle is
correct.
THE FIGHT AT TIENTSIN.
Cotton Mill Man Tells ast How It
Happened.
I>r. R. ]■:. Diffendorfer of Philadelphia,
the builder and manager of the first
wollen mill established in China and the
personal friend of United States Consul
General Ragedale and of Poo Tong, a
brother of the Chinese emperor that was,
tells the following story of the attack
on Tientsin:
"It was on the morning of July 17
that the first clash between the allies
and the emperor's soldiers occurred. On
the afternoon of the same day the bom
bardment of the Taku forts began.
"Captain Bailey of the British ship
Orlando was commander of the allied
forces at Tientsin on July 17, as Captain
McCalla was absent with Seymour at
the time. At about 11 o'clock in the
forenoon he saw smoke rising from the
railroad track about four miles distant
from the city, and, suspecting that the
Boxers had fired another bridge, Cap
tain Bailey ordered .50 of his blue jack
ets, commanded by a midshipman
whose name I have forgotten, to pro
ceed to the scene and investigate. We
had a three-inch gun and the men were
fully armed. When our Hat car had
traveled about three miles we found a
bridge in which the timbers had been
burned away from the iron griders, mak
ing it unsafe to cross, and our com
mander ordered his men to return to the
city. We had gone about ,'ioo yards on
the back trip when he saw a lot of Chi
nese soldiers—about 150 of them—cross
ing the track at a point a mile ahead of
us. They were walking very rapidly,
and as we approached them all doubts
as to their being imperial troops disap
peared. They did not wear the red tur
ban and 6ash that distinguish the Box
ers, and as soon as we got within about
800 yards of them they scatteredjjand
got behind the grave mounds with
which the surface of the country is thick
ly studded.
Pulled the Yankee Trigger.
"Regarding the action as suspicious,
our midshipman gave the order to fire
a volley, and they quickly and vigorous
ly returned the salute. Our field piece
was minus a sight, and most of its shots
passed over the enemy, so that after 10
minutes of hot firing we resumed our re
treat, the Chißese firing at us as long as
we were within range. There were no
casualties on our side.
"The significant feature of that inci
dent was its bearing upon subsequent
proceedings. If it had not been for the
action of our party that morning, the
bombardment of Tientsin might not
have commenced that afternoon. In
other words, I am inclined to believe
that our attack on the Chinese troops
precipitated their bombardment of the
city, and for that reason the skirmish
may attain some importance when tinai
settlements are being made."
Dr. Diffendorfer opines that the trou
ble in China will be at an end within a
couple of years at farthest.
"It will be a repetion of the Tai Ping
rebellion," he said. "When the allies
have captured Pekin the Boxen, will be
broken into bands of marauders,"
