youth and strength as well as the re

man. Tonight, however, all this has
been changed. Fitzsimmons did the
trick cleanly and cleverly.

WANT TO PATCH DP PEACE.
Chinese Viceroys Bet; Good Offices
of United States.
Washington, Aue. 11.—The viecroys
of China, including Li Hung Chang, have
addressed a request to the United States
government to use its good offices with
the powers to stop the landing of for
eign troopa at Shanghai. The state de
partment received the communication
today from Minister Wu, who received
it late last night. The document states
that an agreement was made about a
mouth ago by which the foreign govern
ments exercised the right of protection
over the city of Shanghai. This pro
tection, it is claimed, can be amply car
ried out without the landing of troops,
as the viceroys state there are 20 foreign
warships &mv in the harbor, and are
able to protect the interests of foreign
ers and maintain order. The viceroys
also urge that the binding of troops will
Will Have None of It.
Washington, Aug. Jl— It is stated
officially tenigbt that tbis government
will pay no attention whatever to the
latent appeal from China, transmitted
in the form of a memorial from the
soother a viceroys, begging the United
States to nse its influence against the
landing of Hriiiwh troops in the Yangtse
valley. This memorial was transmitted
to the Btate department this morning by
the Chinese minister, Mr. Wo. It urged
on this government the serious conse
quences that would follow the landing of
a British force at Shanghai and repre
sented that the preparations already
made had produced a panic among the
resident Chinese and would paralyze
commercial activity in that part of the
empire almost as much as a formal
declaration of war by Great Britain.
This government decided, however,
that not only would it be entirely out of
its province to interfere with the British
program in southern China which was
being carried forward by Admiral Sey
mour on the ground with the full knowl
edge of local conditions, but, in view of
China's present attitude and the lack up
to today of even an acknowledgement of
our latest demand concerning the safety
of our ministers, the I'nited States was
not inclined to shoulder any of China's
troubles with Great Britain nor any
other of the powers. Consequently the
appeal of the viceroys will be ignored.
It is possible that the communication
from Minister Wu may be turned over to
the British government for its informa
tion, on the general friendly principle
that has been adopted by the powers of
keeping each other informed on the var
ious developments in the situation.
Even this step, however, has not been
decided upou yet aud will be left to the
judgment of the president.
Li Hung Chang Distrusted.
New York, Aug. 11.—A dispatch to
the Tribune from London says
"The appointment of Li Hung Chang
as the Chinese plenipotentiary for the
negotiation of terms of peacehas been
received with various feelings here.
Those who know the far east have deep
distrust of the old viceroy, and they in
sist that his nomination can bode no
good to this country. If not hostile to
all foreigners, he is at any rate a deter
mined opponent of the British, whom he
has always disliked, notwithstanding his
personal relations with General Gordon
and other men.
"On the other hand, some Chinese ex
perts contend that the appointment
shows that the Manchu government,
realizing that the powers are in earnest,
relies on Earl Li to arrange terms and
to patch up an accommodation, as he
did after the Tientsin massacre in 1870.

Hard FJgbl to Maintain Supremacy
In the House.
Indianapolis, Aug. 11.—Congressman
Overstreet, secretary of the national
congressional bureau ol the republican
party, said tonight:
"Iv 1896 we carried the house by a
majority of 13. Uy contest** decided in
our favor our majority was increased,
but we can not now depend on the dis
trictH tlin contestants came from. We
bad three congressmen from North Caro
lina, but of course Bince the dittfranchise
ment of the negroes, we shall not get a
representative from that state. In 181)8
we had two from Kentucky, but one wan
elected by the narrow margin of 10. We
are not counting on that district a 8 cer
tain. The other district in Kentucky
gave us a large majority, and they cau
not count us out of it. We had one
representative from Texas, from the
Galvestou district, but it id always close
there and the presidential election may
change the result this time. This makes
a total of five that we are almost sure
to lose from what we now have, leaving
us a bare majority of four.
"We are making estimates on a ma
jority of three now, but the odds this
time really favor the democrats. They
have, to begin with, 122 representatives
from the southern states that always
gave a solid congressional delegation for
them. In some of the northern states
they have 40 per cent of the congress
men. In New York they have 18 in the
present houee, or GO per cent of 4he Sew
York delegation. So, on the face of the
outlook, their chances for carrying the
house are better than oure, but I am
sure we should defeat them and have a
"We are going about the campaign in
a practical way. In 18'J8 we sized up
the situation and found that we would
lose 'M districts east of the Missouri
river, so we went to work in districts
that had been doubtful and were success
ful in carrying enough of them to give
us a lead. We expect to get the same
results again and to redeem any dis
tricts against us in 1898.''
History of Imperialism.
Indianapolis, Ind.. Aug. 12— Repre
sentative Charles B. Landis was here to
day, and he predicted a republican plu
rality for McKinley of 25,000. Speak
ing of Bryan's anti imperialistic stand, he
said: "There is a bit of history in that.
Four days before the treaty of peace
with Spain by which we acquired the
Philippines was ratified by congress,
S Aguinaldo commenced war in the hope
|of defeating the treaty. Bryan came on
!to Washington and secured enough
j democratic and populist votes to secure
I ratification. It became the president's
| constitutional duty to suppress rebellion
\ and Bryan himself is largely respoasible
i for our "imperialism."
