Washington, Aug. 19. The criBis
in Chinese affairs is believed to be at
hand, and whether it had anything to
do with the president's return to Wash
ington or not there is a feeling of sat
isfaction that ho is there to meet it.
The allied army is outside of Pekin,
and there are rumors that the Chinese
government intends to compel the for
eigners to go out to the army instead
of having the army come in to them,
but these are rumors only. What is
actually going on is known only to the
favored few who have been allowed to
read the important messages, from
Minister Conger and others, which this
government has deemed it w.'se to sup
press until the foreigners are safely
out of Pekin. But the uncertainty is
almost at an end and that is a reason
for thankfulness even if the outcome
'should not be altogether to our liking.
The thing in which the Americans feel
the greatest personal interest is the
safety of the Americans who have been
shut up in Pekin during these weary
An ominous feature of the Chinese
business is that not a single European
government has seen fit to make any
explanation to this government of the
assembling of war ships and troops at
Shanghai by England, Germany and
France, which so many regard as the
first step toward an international war
in which the European nations jvill.not
The three bids submitted for furnish
ing armor plate for new war ships hav
ing been unsatisfactory in price and
in other particulars, have been reject
ed by the Navy Department and new
bids called for to be opened October 2.
Congress authorized Secretary Long to
accept bids at what he considered a
fair price, but if they were too high
to spend 84,000,000 in establishing
a plant for the government to make its
That further trouble is feared in
China b this government is shown by
the ordering of the closing of United
States consulates in the interior towns
of Chin-Kiang and Chung-Kiang and
the removal of the consuls and their
American assistants to Shanghai until
Great changes come in a few years.
During the last administrat on the
whole country was in a state of alarm
and excitement because of the ship
ment of gold to Europe, and this week
when the largest amount of gold ever
sent out of the country at once left
New York for Europe hobody paid any
particular attention to it, and the Sec
retary of the Treasury says it merely
means that we have more gold than wo
need and that it is going over to pay
for the British war loan recently Bub
scribed toby Americans.
Evidence is continually increasing
that man is learning to control nature.
The latest is contained in a report from
the U. S. consul at Lyons, France, to
the department of state, which deals
with an interestihg and apparently
successful experiment to prevent the
annual devastation by hail storms in
the grape-growing section of France,
by breaking up the clouds by shooting
into them with, cannon. The French
government, the French Agricultural
society, and a number of wealthy
grape-growers contributed the money
to make the experiment on a large
scale, the government loaning the can
non, of which 52 were used, ad selling
the powder Tor 2 sents a pound, Tuo
experiment proved so successful that
arrangements are under way to pro
vide for its permanent establishment
during the storm Benson throughout
the grapo-growing bolt of France.
Our people as a rulo know very little
about our trado with South American
countries and the possibilities of large
ly increasing it. Mr. F. A. Pezet, Pe
ruvian Consul General to the U. S.,
said of our commerce with his country:
"Last year we shipped to the U. S.,
90,000 tons of sugar. Ten years ago
our shipment for twelve months was
but 5,000 tons; in fact our entlro yield
of sugar then was but 70,000 tons a
year. Trade '-In other lines has in
creased in porportion, and both coun
tries are reaping the benefit. The
amount of American goods that go to
Peru has increased nstonishingty dur
ing the past decade. We have now
two lines of steamers plying between
Peru and the United States, and a third
lino is soon to be established. Pe
ruvians have a very warm feeling for
the people of the United States, and
the hope of my government is that
trade relations will continue to grow.
Much trading that Peru now does with
Europe might come to the United
States with benefit to both countries.

THE COLORADO RIVER.
To Be Dredged for Gold Under a New
The San Diego Union says that the
work of dredging the Colorado river "in
the eastern part of this county, for
gold, will begin in a very short time.
Two dredges are now bein built, one
at Yuma and the other at thePotHoles,
and they will be started out for service
on the river as soon as they are com
pleted. The men behind the scheme expect
to make big money and are therefore
putting considerable cash In the enter
prise. C. W. Ste .vart, who owns large
interests along the river, between
Yuma and and Needles, gives the fol
lowing interesting account of present
and prospective operations in that sec
tion in an interview In the Los Angeles
"The Colorado river," said Mr. Stew
art, "from Yuma up is rich in gold.
What I mean 19 that there are places
all along the river where the. gravel
and clay are rich enough to yield fine
"Two big dredges are now building,
one at Yuma, the other at Pot Holes,
half way between Yuma and Needles
for service along the river. The one
at Pot Holes will cost 830,000, and will
handle from 1,000 to 5,000 yards of
gravel a day.
"Both dredgers will operate with
buckets on an endless chain, and will
have new features which are especially
designed for saving of fine gold; Some
dredges of the same kind 'are being
used successfully on the Snake river in
Idaho, where the gold is even finer
than it is in the Colorado.
"The commencement of work done
by these dredges on tho Colorado- will
be an event of great Importance to.tho
mining history of that part of tho
country. It will bo the first time that
the proper method is put into practice
out there, and I am sure the returns
will be excellent for tho gold Is, there
without a doubt."
