PURIFICATION OF WATER
W ATER is tio more necessary to life
than pure water is to health. Be
cause persous have drank ques
tionable water and still live is no evi
dence that they would not have lived
better on pure water. Because one sur
vives a dose of poison, it is is no reason
that poison is good or harmless.
IT IS REASONABLE,
if a badly polluted water causes severe
and fatal disease, that slightly impure
water may slowly undermine the health
by being the cause of a host of ailments
and inabilities of body for which the suf
ferer finds no apparent cause.
W r hen a city is supplied with only
doubtfully pure water, no family should
be without a private filter.

Washington, Aug. 15.—The tension
of the Chinese situation has been intense
throughout the day, for it is appreciated
■by officials that the crisis has reached an
acute stage which cannot he continued
many hours without bringing word of
momentous import either for good or evil
in the entire course of events. It has
been a day of extreme anxiety, of watch
ing and waiting, with only meager and
fragmentary inforuiatieu as to the mili
tary and diplomatic phases.
One of the new developments todav
was the statement that messages are be
ing received from Minister Conger which
are not transmitted through any of our
officials in China or through the Chinese
minister here, but directly at the state
department. These messages come by
way ofTsi-nan. Some of them can not
lie fully deciphered, ami for this reason
the statement can not be definitely made
that the dispatches sent by the govern
ment to Minister Conger are received by
him. So far as the messages have lieen
deciphered there is no indication that
Minister Conger received any informa
tion or dispatch from our state depart

Bkri.in, Aug. 13 —At the Chinese le
gation the representative of the Associa
ted Press was informed today that the
empress dowager had declared her inten
tion to leave Pekin and to transfer her
court to another city before the allied
forces reached the capital. Lu Hai Ho
raun, the Chinese minister here, on learn
ing of this intention telegraphed to both
the empress dowager and the emperor
not to leave Pekin, but quietly await the
arrival of the international forces,
The German foreign office still believes
the allies have not begun the advance on
Pekin, the rainy season being unfavora
ble. It believes that a further forward
movement will be postpoued.
The Chinese protest against the land
ing of troops at Shanghai has been of
ficially received here. A foreign office
official discussing it said today: ."The
protest is here, but who pays any atten
tion now to Chinese protests?"
Great Britain, according to the German
foreign office, has not given any other
explanation of her purpose in landing
troops at Shanghai than the declaration
made by the British consul general to the
other foreign consuls there, namely, the
protection of life and property.

Nkw York, Aug. 15.—A dispatch to
the World from the headquarters of the
allied forces at Thai-thsun, August 8, via

The general advance of the allied forces

General Chaffee. They led the allies in
the forced march from Pei-tsang and at
tacked before the natives had recovered
from the effects of their signal defeat of
the day before. The United States reg
ulars made a dash when they found the
enemy and soon were masters of the po
Route* the Mongols.
Chicago, Aug. 15.—A special to the
Times-Herald from Washington says:
A second dispatch corroborating the
advices from General Chaffee that the rt

navigation of the navy department, and
evidently was from Admiral Ileiney. Here

A Two Days' Storm at
Nome on August 2
The Cal« Which Prevailed Is Re
ported to Have Been Extremely
Skatti.k, Aug. 15. — The steamship
Centennial arrived from Nome this after
noon with over 500 passengers, bringing
news of the wreck of several vessels on
the Nome beach on Aug. 2 and 3, during
which time a severe storm raged. The
steamer W. K. Mervin is a total wreck.
She drove ashore on the afternoon of
August 2. 80 far as known there were
no lives lost, the crew and passengers
escaping to the shore iu small boats.
During the storm the tug Effort drifted
broadside on the beach and got bilged.
The schooner Teaser also drifted on the

Tariff the Issue.
Although the Bryanite organs say
nothing abont it, there is an issue in
volved iu this campaign which is of rtiore
importance than the bugaboo of ''im
perialism," upon which they effect to get
such store, says Hie Pittsburg Times.
That issue has been important since the
foundation of the republican party, and
is the well known one of Protection to
American industry. Bryan is and always
has lieen a free-trader, and there cannot
be the slightest doubt that if chosen pres
ident he would give his sanction to
measures that would reduce tariff duties
below the protection line and remove
many of them altogether. His platform
expressly "condemns the Dingley Tariff
law," and thereby shows that he and his
party really believe that the tar iff law is
a live question.
The republican platform declares that
"we renew our faith in the policy of pro
tection to American labor," and thus
squarely joins issue with the Bryanites. i
The latter's organs naturally do not de

sire to discuss the tariff issue any more
than they wish to say anything about the
money one. These predictions as to the
dis.i-.tcrs which must overtake the country

sound money prevailed iu governtenla!
1 affairs have been so completely discred
ited by the great prosperity which we
j now enjoy that they naturally prefer to
discuss other questions. But adequate
protection to American iudustrv is a
I matter which is as much at stak.e iu the

I to the fact.
To Build West.
It is predicted that hv the end of the
current year the Chicago & Alton rail
way will have a line of its own lietweeu
l hicago and Denver. Negotiations are
now in progress in New York for the pur
pose ol perfecting a deal whereby the
Union Pacific is to sell to the Alton its
Kansas City division, running from Kan
sas City direct to Denver. The Union
Pacific has no particular use for Ihisprop
ertv. It is not connected east of Denver
with its main line, and the latter finds an
outlet to Denver by the Jnlesberg cut-off,
which was formerly owned by the Union
Pacific, Denver it Gulf, but was acquired
uliout a year ago by the Union Pacific
E. 11 Harrimau, the head of the syndi-
cate which controls the Chicago &, Alton,
- is also chairman of the hoard of directors
j °f the l nion Pacific, which practically
J directs the affairs of the latter. His in
terest iu the Alton, however, is far great
er than in the Urion Pacific, the Yaudcr
ikilts having a large interest in the latter.
It has long been the opinion that it was
Mr. Harriman's object to take the Kan
sas Pacific branch from the Union Pacific
and make it a part of the Alton system.
The directors of the Alton and the
Union Pacific roads will meet in New
York on September 1 to formally com
plete the «leal for the absorption of the
Kansas Pacifie by the Chicago & Alton.
