STETKNSON AS A POPULIST.
Democratic Adlai Named for Vice
Chicago, Aug. 27.—At a meeting of
the people's party national committee
today, the declination of Charles A.
Towne as the vice presidential nominee
for tho party was accepted, and the
name of Adlai E. Stevenson was put in
his place. This result was obtained
after a long debate, beginning at 2 p. m.
and ending about 6:30. In the begin
ning there were three courses advocated
by different members of the committee,
viz: To nominate a populist; to leave
the place blank, or lastly, to indorse Mr.
Senator Butler, chairman of the com
mittee, in a warm speech of some length,
advocated leaving the place blank, con
tending that Bryan and Stevenson
would receive more populist votes than
if a candidate for vice president was
named. But one test vote was taken.
A motion was made to indorse Mr. Stev
enson. For this motion Mr. Washburn
of Massachusetts moved as a substitute
that a populist be placed upon the
ticket. The substitute was lost on the
roll call by a vote of 24 ayes to 71 noes
The original motion was then adopted
by a vive voce vote. There were 124
members of the committee present or
represented by proxy.
SHAKKEY LASTED QUICK.

New York, Aug. 24—"Whipped into
insensibility in less than two rounds,"
is the story in brief of Tom Sharkey's
meeting with Bob Fitzsimmons at the
Coney Island Sporting Club tonight.
FitzHimmons was the victor, Sharkey
the loser. Fitzsimmons said all along
that when an opportunity presented
itself he would prove conclusively he wan
Sharkey's superior and settle accounts
for the injustice done him when he met
Sharkey in California four years ago
Sharkey was equally confident that he
would prove to be Fitzsimmons' master
in the ring, but the result of tonight's
battle and the brevity of it proved that
Fitz is still a great tighter and able to
beat the best of the heavyweights. He
has beaten Corbett, Ruhlin and Sharkey.

Brother hood of American Yeomen.
S. E. Swanson. district deputy for tiie
Brotherhood of American Yeomen, is in
the city and will organize a subordinate
homestead of that order. The Yeomen
are well represented in the greater part
of its jurisdiction and is very popular
wherever organized. The assessments
of this order are based on actual corit of
other insurance concerns covering an ex
perience of over 30 years. For this rea
son each certificate holder knows the
amount he is required to pay before his
policy matures, after which he draws
one-tenth the amount of his certificate
annually. The Yeomen handle insurance
on the principle that a merchaut handles
an article of merchandise. They have
figures showing the cost of gi\iug any
man $1000, $2000 or $3000 from the
date of his certificate to the expiration
of his expectancy. This cost is equalized
among the entire membership, thereby
forestalling the possibility of having iu
creased cost with added age. This is
proved to be a plan whereby insurance
can be perpetuated for any length of
time at actual cost. Auy pereun desir
ing an insurance covering lite, accident,
old age and disability beuetits can do no
better than to carry a policy iv thL-* ex
cellent order. Men and women are ad
mitted on equal terms. A sick benefit
can be taken at an extra cost. For par
ticulars see deputy.
The Sisters of Charity conducting the
St. lenatius hospital of Colfax are mak
ing the preliminary arrangements for a
fair to be given for the benefit of this
institution some time in October. Three
years have passed since they have made
an appeal for financial aid to the people
of this community. These sisters are
worthy of encouragement in their sacred
mission. These silent missionaries work
not for material but spiritual gain, not
for vain, passing glory, but glory never
ending. The boundless love of Christ
for man urges them. The bloody scene
of Calvary, return of love induces them
to leave home and comfort, parent and
friend, to devote their entire life to the
care of poor and disabled, to tenderly
nursing the sick and dying. The motto
of their order well expresses the object
of their work: "The love of Christ
presseth us''—(Cor.) The citizens of
Colfax and vicinity have showed their
appreciation of this angelic work in the
past and no doubt will generously re
spond once more.
IT IS ROGERS AGAIN
llenominated For Governor By
Elected First as a Populist— Rob
ertson and Itnnald Nominees
Seattle, Aug. 30.— At an early hour
this morning John R. Rogers wan Dom
inated for the office of governor by the
fusionists in union convention. The
eighth ballot, which landed him the nom
ination, stood: Roger* 7<>4'j, Fawcett
241',,, Voorhees 11, Neil Cbeetham 43,
Tharston Daniels .">:5. There is do doubt
that to thoHe who were not in attend
ance at the convention Mr. Rogers' Dom
ination will come an a great Burpritse.
I'pon the organization of the three con
ventions here on Monday the democrats
and populists were bj a good-sized
majority opposed to the governor's re
nomination. Rogers, however, had a
splendid organization, which did not lose
courage and held all of its delegates.
Last night they succeeded in winning
over Stevens county, and this, together
with several other small changes in their
favor, gave them control of the Unioß
conventionjwhieh met today. The gov
ernor's stock went up considerably when
oa a test vote of his strength F. C. Rob
ertson of Spokane whs shown to be the
convention's favorite for congressman.
Governor Rogers and his crowd forced
Ronald, King county's candidate, to
agree to the nomination of Ronald and
Robertson. Ronald did not look with
favor upon this, as Robertson's nomina
tion mennt the elimination of Voorhees,
Ronalds candidate for governor. Ron
ald personally preferred to go down to
defeat, but his delegation insisted that
he accept the nomination even though
it aided Rogers by disposing of Voor
Itobertson and Ronald.
Seattle. Wash., Aug. 29.— F. C. Rob
ertson of Spokane and J. T. Ronald of
King were nominated for congress this
afternoon by the fusion forces in union
convention. The result was a sienal
triumph for Senator Turner and the
Rogers forces, although it took three
ballots to settle the contest.
This forenoon all three conventions
adopted the report of the conference
committee and went into joint session
at 2 o'clock. The conference report
First—That a two-thirds vote should
be required to nominate any candidate
in the union convention.
Second—That the ticket so nominated
should be called the democratic ticket.
Third—That Robert Bridges, chair
man of the populist convention, and a
bitter enemy of Governor Rogers, should
be chairman of the union convention.
DIPLOMACY CLAIMS ATTENTION.
Kussia Said to be Creating Trouble
Washington, Aujj. 25.—Tbediplomatic
feature of the Chinese situation today
took precedence over both the naval and
military features. The officials of the
government were, if anything, more un
communicative than heretofore as to th»
relations between the powers. It was
authoritatively said no news of impor
tance had been received, nnd (hat the
diplomatic negotiations could not be
The most unsatisfactory developments
of the day, so far as the pacific program
of this government goes, was the receipt
of a dispatch from Admiral Remey con
veying the reports which had reached
him of a disagreement between the com
mander of the Russian forces in Pekin
and the other internationals. The text
of this dispatch was not made public,
but it was said on good authority to
contain the statement that the Russian
commander had forbiddden communica
tion with the Chinese on the ground that
Russia was technically as well as practi
cally at war with China. It may be said
that the information was not conveyed
by Admiral Remey as official news, but
merely as a report from reliable sources
which he considered this government
should possess for its own information.
Assuming Admiral Remey's report to
be correct, this move on the part of Rus
sia strikes the first note of diecord in
the heretofore harmonious concert of the
powers. It may be said, however, that
the news is not taken very seriously by
this government, and certainly will not
affect our course in any way until it has
been officially confirmed.
Situation at Pekin
London, Aug. 27.—The latest news
from Pekin indicates that the situation
there is unchanged. The imperial city
is still invested, but has not yet been oc
cupied. The allies, when the last mes
sage left, were still refraining from ag
gressive action, pending instructions
from their governments. An attack
from 30,000 Boxers was anticipated,
and to meet this the whole American
force and the British artillery, according
to a dispatch to the Morning Post from
Pekin, dated August 18, was moved to
the outer city wall. The Boxers were re
ported coming from the south.
General Dorward in his report of the
engagement outside of Tientsin August
19, when the Americans, British and
Japanese signally defeated a large force
of Boxers, killing over 300, says iv a
dispatch dated August 25:
"The lines of communication near
Tientsin are now free from danger. The
enemy had been treating the villagers
badly. Several decapitated bodies were
found near their camp. The villagers
are flocking to Tientsin at the rate of
a thousand a day. As there is not more
than a month's food supply there is
every prospect of a famine shortly."
This declaration that a famine is im
minent in consequence of the inadequacy
of provisions for the hordes of refugees
at Tientsin adds a new elempnt of peril
to the situation.
Americans Whipped Boxers.

STEW AST (» SILVER.
Iteasoiiß For Ketiining to Further
Senator William M.Stewart of Nevada
has always been one of the strongest of
silver men, and established in Washing
ton City the Silver Watchman, to fight
for the silver cause, a few days ago
Senator Stewart called at republican
headquarter* and said he hud decided to
vote for and rapport Mckinlev and the
republican ticket. He made this state
ment as to Inn reasons:
The Senator's ItcaMtns.
"The United States weal to war with
S|xiin, urged on by the democratic party.
The popularity of the wiir was such that
Mr. Bryan joined the army. The war
was successful, a treaty <if peace was en
tered luto by which the United States
agreed to pay $20,000,000 and accept
the soverignty and public property of
Spain in Philippine archipelago. There
wan opposition to the ratification of the
treaty. Mr. llryan came to Washiug
ton and persuaded hit* democratic friends
to vote for the treaty and it wan through
his influence that the treaty wan finally
ratified. It then became the duty of
the United States to maintain law and
order and protect the lives and property
of all residents in the islands, whether
native or for Hen born. The United
States ac tlie time of the ratification of
the treaty held military possession of
Manila and immediately after such rati
fication assumed the sovereignty of the
islands. The people of the Doited
Staten, particularly of the Pacific coast,
became entitled to the vast commerce of
the Pacific ocean, of which the Philip
pineH furnish the key.
"One Atfuinaldo had raised a rebellion
in Luzon against Spain before the com
mencement of the Spanish war with the
United States. This adventurer had
sold out or settled his rebellion with
Spain for $400,000 before Dewey set sail
for Manila, and as a part of the bar
gain with Spain Aguinaldo agreed to
leave the islands and never return.
Derey took the wily Aguinaldo back to
tb« inlands, supposing as a matter of
course, that Aguinaldo would naturally
be an enemy of Spain and a friend of the
United States. In this Admiral I)ewey
was mistaken. Aguinaldo, as soon as
he landed on his native soil, organized a
rebellion against the United States which
would have been of little consequence if
he had not been able to obtain comfort
and aid in this country. An organiza
tion was formed in the United States
called the Anti Imperialistic League,
which has for the last two years co-oper
ated with Aguinaldo's TagalJunta, with
headquarters at Hong Kong, to supply
literature and materials of war for Agui
naldo. President MtKioley had no
authority to buy out Aguinaldo's rebel
lion against the United States but was
bound by the treaty (which was the
supreme law of the land) to maintain
law and order and protect life and
property in the islands. It required a
large army arid the expenditure of hun
dreds of millions of dollars to put down
Auti-lmperialiotH Stepped In.
"The assistance and tbe eucouraginent
he received from the Anti-Imperialistic
League and the enemies of the United
.States, both at home and abroad, made
his barbarous and irregular war bloody
and expfßsive. Congress, however, made
all necessary appropriation**, providing
the executive with men and money to
maintain the authority of the I'nited
States in the Philippines. The 80-called
anti-imperialists declared the policy to
put down the rebellion and maintain law
and order in till territories 'if the United
.States, without regard to the time when
such territories were acquired, was 'im
perialism,' and that any use of the army
to maintain law and order, however
necessary, was'iuilitarinm' and that giv
ing aid and comfort to rebels in arms
against tbe United States was 'main
taining the principles of the Declaration
'Mr. Bryan's unparalleled campaign
for the principles of the Chicago plat
form and his insistence upon the adop
tion of that platform at Kansas City
induced the people to suppose that the
campaign of 1000 would be conducted
on the issues of 1896. In this it seems
they were mistaken."
Senator Stewart then quotes Mr. Bry
an's declaration of his intention, if
elected, to call an extraordinary session
of congress to give the Filipinos free
dom on the same terme as Cuba. H*
also denounces the recent convention of
anti-imperialists at Indianapolis. He
also denounces Mr. Bryan for promising
to "extend the Monroe doctrine to the
