Washington, ., Feb. 19. This gov

against China. Indication of our pur
pose will be sent to the powers. This
determination was reached at 'today's
cabinet meeting. It is believed by
the president and members of his

Washington, Feb. 19 Daring a

from Minister Conger was submitted
referring to the proposed military ex

Count Von Waldersee. It disclosed
the fact that our minister had pro

against hostile movements of this

British Foreign ODc( Has Heard Nothing
Official of Waldersee' Move.
Loudon, Feb. 19. In the commons
yesterday Lord Crfl'nborne, when the
debate on the address in reply to the
king's speech wis resumed, said com
menial interest was Great Britain's
principal interest in China. There had
been great Oelay in the settlement of
affairs In (Jhina, but such delay must
be expected; in dealing; with the Chi
nese. As to the question of indemnity.
Lord Cranborne said the British minis
ter at Peking, Sir Ernet iSatow, had
been instructed to gather together the
claims that were to be made. Referring
to the railroad dispute Ixrd Cranborne
said Russia had assured the govern
ment that the occupation of the Ie-.klitg-Shau
Hal Kuan railroad was only
teiniMirary and that the railroad and
materials would le restored at the end
of the occupation.
CriMiborue Compliments Russia.
Lord Cranborne added: "I am bound
to say that in all our dealings with the
Kussian government In this matter we
have been received In the most friend
y way. We have no complaint what
ever to make against the government
NEED OF OFFICERS IN THE ARMY
HASTENS GRADUATION AT WEST POINT.
West Point, N. Y., Feb. 19 Under
the s tar 5 and stripe?, and In the
presence of a company of distin
guished visitors, the first class of
1901, of the United States Military
academy, numbering 73 men, received
their diplomas yesterday from the
hands of Col. Albert L. Mills, super
intendent of the academy. Under
ordinary conditions the class would
not have graduated until Juue, but
owing to the need of officers in the
army the stay of the cidets at the
academy, was . shortened by th.ee
It is the third time that such a ne
cessity has arisen in recent "years.
The oatbreak of the Spanih-AmeriT
can war in April, 1898, necessitated
additional officers for troops being
of the czar, une cannot neip wisnm
that the undoubtedly benevolent In
tentions of the Russian government are
carried out more rapidly ly their of
ficers in distant provinces. 1 do not
doubt their intentions in this matter
towards this country."
Czar' Arrangement with China.
Continuing, Lord Cranborne said
Russia had assured the government
that any agreement between Russia
and China respecting the occupation of
Manchuria " wa-s in the nature or a
modus Vivendi to prevent disturbances
along the frontiers and railroad. It
was purely temporary, and although a
guarrantee was expected by Russia
that these disturbances would not
break out again, that guarantee would
not take the form of territorial acquisi
tion or a virtual protectorate.
Be f era to Walderaee's Expedition.
Sir William Vernon Harcourt asked:
"Is it true that an expedition into the
interior of China has teen ordered
by Count von Waldersee ? And if so
how does the order affect our troops?
At the end of such an operation we
might find ourselves In another guer
rilla war among a population far great
er than the Boers." Lord Cranborne re
plied that so far as the government
was aware no power was contemplat
ing an expedition Into the interior of
China. If it was so the British com
manders would require fresh instruc
tions. Lord Cranborne also observed
that the government did not consider
suicide a proper alternative for the
death penalty in the case of the Chi
nese implicated in the Boxer outrages.
UNCLE SABI FACING A CRISIS
Ia the Chlaeae Business Dtamay On
Washington. Feb. 19. The United
States government is facing a serious
crisis in China, owlug to the announce
ment of the purpose of Field Marshal
Count von Waldersee to begin another
offensive campaign. General Chaffee
has been Invited to join in the expedi
tion, which Is to be mobilized on a
larger scale than anything attempted
in China since the original march to
Peking. The general so informed the
war department yesterday and the of
ficials of the state department have
been advised of the situation. This
German movement Is viewed with ab
solute dismay here, for it Is feared that
it requires an immediate decision by
the United Statps government uion
its whole line of policy toward the
General Chaffee will be told that he
is not to participate in this campaign.
He has been keeping the American
forces in Peking ever since the city
was pacified simply as a legation guard,
and the German government is fully
aware that the United States govern
ment purposely deprived the America u
contingent in China of its offensive
military- character and withdrew it
from the control of Count von Walder
see in order to hasten peace negotia
tions and prevent, so far as It could,
the continuance of military movements
against the Chinese which were at
once unnecessary and baneful in their
effect niton the peace movement.
So, our government not having
changed its policy, cannot do other
wise than cause General Chaffee to re
frain from any participation in hostile
military movements, so -long as the
present praceful conditions continue.
But another very serious point under
consideration is not whether Chaffee
shall join the German movement, but
whether it Is not the duty of our gov
ernment to exercise all proper efforts
to dissuade the German government
from undertaking this campaign.
The Chinese government is unfortu
nately delaying the peace negotiations
In an exasperating fashion, and Is not
responding in proper spirit to the ef
fortof the United States government.
Word has just come from Minister
Conger which confirms the press ad
vices relative to the Chinese domina
tion to accede to the demands of the
ministers in the matter of capital pun-1

C. Coburn, who has a farm near Druui

and has ln-en at Bayfield investigating
the advisability of opening up an An
gora goat farm. The Bayfield Angoras
have proven a great success, and the
doctor will place a nook on his Drum

but few flocks in northern Wisconsin,
but what there are have proven very
recruited throughout the country, and
West Point responded by turning out
59. clean-cut young officers, who did
excellent service in the Cuban cam
paigns. Of the 59, three met death
at the head of their men before San
Juan and Santiago, ind many others
were wounded. By February, 1899,
the ravages of the hard campaigns in
the tropics had so reduced the num
ber of the army officers fit for active
service that the president and his ad
visers decided that the military acad
emy should sgiin furnish the neces
sary men to take their places. '
These two instances and the gradu

THE NATION IN PRISON
Prefers That to Giving a Bond ot
$2,000 for Raiding a Stor
JUDGE'S DECISION HITS HES HARD
Because He Would Tie Up Her
HatchetMeets Two Re
buffs in One Day.
Toneka, Kan., Feb. 19. Mrs. Na
tion is now in the county jail as a re
sult of her trial on a peace warrant
before Judge Ilazen yesterday. The
warrant was sworn to by the Moeser
Cold Storage company, whose plant
Mrs. Nation entered Sunday morning.
Mrs. Nation acted as her own attorney
in the trials Judge Ilazeu placed her
under $2,000 bond to keep the peace,
and ordered her to appear before him
at the next term of court. Mrs. Na
tion refused to give the bond, and said
she would go to jail. She is now de
tained in the hospital room of thecoun
ty jail, where she will probably re
main for some time. In the city court
yesterday morning arguments were
given in the case brought against Mrs.
Nation by the proprietors of the
wrecked "Senate" saloon. Judge Mc
Cabe said he would take the matter
under advisement until Thursday
J udge Score the Kationites.
It is not likely that Mrs. Nation will
be able to give lond, because she de
clares that she will resume her smash
ing crusade against the "joints" im
mediately upon her release. Her
friends have been advised that Judge
Hazen will order her release only on
promise to send her to her home at
Medicine Ixnlge. Judge Hazen last
night pla ceil Cal McDonald. Mrs. Rose
Crist and Miss Madeline Southard un
der bonds. McDonald's bond is $1,
000, the others nre ?."O0 each. The
judge delivered a scathing address to
the three Nation lieutenants. He ex
pressed the opinion that Mrs. Nation
is insane and said those persons who
encourage her methods of reform
ought to be ashamed of themselves.
Surprise for Some Smashers.
The warrants for the arrest of the
three altove named were sworn out by
William Moeser. He has also begun
suits for malicious trespass against
Mrs. Nation, Mrs. Crist. Miss South
ward." Cal McDonald, Frank Murphy,
Dr. Eva Harding. Mrs. A. F. Chadwick
and Rev. F. W. Emerson. Somewhat
of a sensation was produced in the
saloon-wreckers camp when it became
known that three of their members hrfd
beenput rmder bond and flint others
were to be sued. Interesting develop
ments are looked for.
felie I Swaioid by Objection.
During the trial Will Moeser. jqne of
the partners in the storage house, was
the first witness called. After answer
ing all questions put by the county at
torney, Mrs. Nation opened fire with
all manner of questions. Objections
were offered by the county authorities,
most of which Avere sustained. Other
witnesses followed in a like manner
and she kept up a hot fusillade of
questions, wanting to know how many
hatchets were used in breaking in,
"what do you keep in your place," isn't
it a fact that you keep all .kinds of hell
broth?" etc. Mrs. Nation could not un
derstand the sustaining of the many
objections and said she did not think
the judge was fair with her.
SAT IPOS BY THE MARSHAL,
Saloon Smasher Kan Up Against a Brand
' During the trial of the saloon smash
er for her assault on the Senate sa
loon, which was held before Judge Mc
Cabe yesterday morning Mrs. Nation
struck a new sensation that of find
ing a place where she was not boss.
One illustration of 'this came about
this way: At one point in the hearing
Mrs. Nation left her seat and opened
a window. The cold wind swept in
and blew the papers about the court
room. ' - ' ,
"Close that window and open it from
the top." said Judge McCabe to Mar
shal Boss. Mrs. Nation took her seat
and Boss closed the lower sash and
opened the top sash. Mrs. Nation
rushed back and threw up the lower
"Take your seat." commanded the
judge. "The marshal will take care
of the windows."
"He didn't do it," snapped Mrs. Na
tion. "You sit down and tend to your
business and I'll tend to mine," re
torted the marshal, as he closed the
windoty. Mrs. Nation looked at Boss,
too surprised to say a word.
TIk court took a recess of ten min
utes during the trial and when the
argument was resumed Mrs. Nation
walked about the court room, and de
tecting the fumes of tobacco said:
"Some one Is smoking here; better
stop it. for it smells bad." No notice
seemed to le taken of this. After the
arguments were ended Judge McCabe
declared that the question was new
and important and entitled to a thor
ough Consideration. "I shall take such
time as seems necessary to me. as we
have no decision of our own supreme
court. The court will announce a de
cision Thursday morning 'at 0 o'clock."
A New York special says that in a
letter to I,eslie' Weekly Mrs. Nation
says: "A saloon has no right in any
place. I will smash the saloons in
New York. Milwaukee, St. Louis and
Chicago just as in Kansas. But I
must clean up my own home before I
dare say to my neighbor: T can tell
you how to clean yours.' He breaks
