Members will line up just outside

Is there a secret undcr*taudiiig be

government of Chiaa? The .
tanee by Sntetary Hay and otber
aieaabara of theCahinet oV everjthiae;
said to them hy the Chineso Minis
ter 88 gospel truth, is Ngjarded
as suspicious. Although BCOfled
at by the entire dijdomatie oorpa aud
doubted by the pablic, Mr. Ilav has
accepted the cahlcgrain alleged to be
from Minister Conger and BBjiBf thal
he and theother foreign Bliaietera m
POkio were all right ou the 18th hat
in need of help, as genuine, and the
otber Baeaabera of the Oabiaet have
evcn gone eo far a? to throw boaqaeta
at Mr. Ha\ hy publiely saying i hat his
getting that message was a great dip
lomatic triuniph. Diplomatie fid
dlestick! That message, whether
fake or genuine, was secured by the
Chinese minister for purjMJses of his
own, and if there was any triumph
about it, thecredit is his.
Beaator Welliagtoo, whosoinetime
ago declared that he would not sup
pcrt MeKinley for rcelection. is still
throwing nuts to the adininistration
which it cannot or will not crack.
The Senator eaid, while in Washing
ton, a day or two ago; "If the sit
uation in the 1'hilippines is as fav
orable as the adininistration would
have us believe, there is no rcBBOB
why twelve or tiftcen thonsaml aaefl
could not be sent from there to
service in China. I think that would

It seems to be a little early in the
oaaapaign for Rpee Hanna'e heach
men to be putting out fakes, but all
the 8ame they are going it. S.v.ral
men known to be closc to Baaaa
have been lilling up Washington
newspaper men with stories about
how worried the "old man" was
baoaaaa of the refaaal of some of the
hvavicst contributers to his campaign
fnnd four years ago to give a cent
this year, and of his fear that the
National Connnittee would have to
8kimp its aaaanaiga plaaa for lack of
money. The object of these stories
is to create the inipressioii among the
deinoerats that the repuhlicans are
going to be short of campaign monev
this year. It is, of course, ahaolnte
tomuiyrot. Hannaspent (8,000,000
four jaan ago, and he expeets to

Leaf Tobacco Company, are interest
ing themselves in a movement to se
cure for him a life-saving medal of
the lirst-class, as authorized by Con
gress, for his huniaue work at the
risk of his own life.
Althcugh Mr. Thom has rescoed
at least three other persons frnni
drowning, the case upon which the
elaini for a medal will be based in
volves the saving of a blind negro
woman who fell off a wharf at Ur
h.iniia, Ya., and had a narrow escape
from death. It was in the dead of

on a hunting expedition, happened
to be present. Without a momont's
heskation he plunged into the ice-cold
water, and after a desperate struggle
with the territied wonian, succeeded
in fastening a ropa about her. When
the brave act was coinpleted Mr.
Thom was mueh exhauMed. Two
sons of the woman saw her dooger
but did not agsist her. Mr. TboaB is
