THE3i1KD1ANAPOL1S JOUKNAL, SATURDAY, AUGUST 29, 1593.
was a fleet of several steam yachts, excur sion boats and tugs loaded with passen gers. The St. Ixmls arrived off .quarantine at 32:30 and was immediately boarded by the government welcoming committee from the Dolphin. The big steamship slowly moved ' up the bay. surrounded by all kinds of gaily decorated craft, and with the Dol phin quite near her. to the music of a tremendous chorur of steam whistles and a continual fusillade of giant firecrackers, etc. As the St. Douls neared the American fleet a salute in honor of the Chinese vis itor was fired from the flagship New York. The New York was the only war ship to fire a salute, but the other ships dipped their colors as tne St. Douls passed. They presented a magnificent appearance and were watched with the greatest interest by the Chinese embassador and his suite "from the position which tii?y occupied on the port side of the upper deck. THE VISITOR WELCOMED. When the St. Louis reached quarantine, Li Hung Chang was dining, and he re mained in his cabin. The steamer was surrounded by the fleet of boats, making It Impossible to proceed very fast, and as she steamed up the bay towards the fleet, thero was a continual toot of steam whis tles and some boats touched off a Chinese anthem In the shape of several bunches of firecrackers.. When the dispatch boat was reached a salute peeled forth, and, a little later, as the fleet was reached, the New York's tciiutlng guns boomed out the Eng lish salute of nineteen guns for a lord high admiral, thero being no American salute that equals this number. The party of Americans was ushered into the aft drawing room, and waited for some fifteen mlmtes to ee the embassador, in the meantlmo meeting members of his staff. Li Hung Chang went into his cabin, but soon ap peared with hfs son. He was attired in the historical yellow Jacket, purple silk trous ers, black and white felt shoes and a black and red hat with the three-eyed peacock plume depending from the back. Holding the Jacket in the front was a large diamond, surrounded with pearls. He wore glasses and leaned a trifle on the attendants as he stood up to receive his guests. General Ruger was first introduced. Lf rhook hands cordially with the general, who eald: "Embassador, I am here on behalf of the United States government and President Cleveland to bid you welcome to this coun try." The translator told the embassador, who however, had showed interest enough in the statement to say lhat he understood it. In Chinese he said: "I am glad to be here, and I thank you for this kindness. I am glad to know you." Then the other members of the party were introdouced and received a cordial handshake. The welcoming party had been ndded to by the presence of Collector of the Tort Kilbreth, General Wilson. General Mc Cook and Vice President Wright. After he had been Introduced to the entire party, he raid to General Ruger: "Where will the President preside?" evidently wishing to know where he. would be met. General Jtuger replied: "I will communicate all the arrangements to you when I see you this afternoon." The embassador had heard that General James 8. Wilson had been a friend and fellow-fighter with'General Grant: that h had a record for bravery, and he could hardly restrain his Impatience, so anxious was he to talk with him. lie finally sat down and asked through his Interpreter for General Wilson, and made him sit down beside him while he plied him with ques tions, telling him that he knew of his rec ord. On the way to the American-line pier Castle William fired a salute and in the meantime the embassador talked with va rious members of the reception party. Ho Is very quiet In his demeanor, speaks in a low voice and. according to a description f him by the passeugers. is a cordial and endearing man. He wears his glasses down far on his nose, as If to hlre the scar of the Japanese assassin, which shows just below his left eye. The ambassador was not without humor, as was evidenced by the expression upon his face when he saw the horde of reporters. He said: "We don't have reporters in China, but they seem to have some here." LI ASKS A QUESTION. The distinguished traveler chatted for a vhllo with General McCook. who had met Hm in Moscow at the coronation of the Czar. His conversation turned to the mat ters that he seemed to be more Interested In than any other, and while he smoked a cigarette, he asked one of those pertinent questions for which he has become famous: 'Where did you all become generals?" This rather phased McCook. who had not risen. to anything above colonel, but who Is generally called general. Ho also asked several questions abcut the military forces. The St. Louis moved up the harbor In a sort of triumphal procession, greeted on all sides with the tooting of steam whis tles and other salutes, and eventually reached her dock at 1:). Rut the party was not able to land until sometime later, owing to the necessary delay In warping the ship alongside of her wharf. The vi cinity of the dock was about as lively as the finish line on a yacht-race day and "With the America's cup at stake. All kinds cf craft were dashing here and there In everybody's way. but escaping accident bv a series of marvels. The yellow standard of China was loudly cheered by the crowds about the wharf as the big stetnshlp neared the landing place of the American line. When the dock was reached the Chinese embassador enjoyed what to him was evi dently the most p!easant incident of the reception. The gang plank had hardly been put in position when Colonel Fred Grant stepped up. and the embassador's face .beamed with smiles as he grasped, the colonel's hand and shook it warmiy. He conversed with him a few minutes before entering his carriage for conveyance to the Waldorf Hotel. The Chinese party was re ceived at the p!er by the guard of honor of the marine infantry and an immense crowd of pepole, which was with ditficulty . kept back from tho approaches by a large force of police. The Chinese standard was hauled down from the American line steam er at 1 :.". as the Chinese embassador land ed on the wharf and entered the carriage In attendance. PROCES3ION TO THE HOTEL. The first carriage contained the embassa dor and General Ruger and in the next were Tao-Tal-LI and Major Von liann. In a third carriage was Lord LI and his wife. Loh-Feng-Luh. and another staff officer. After them came carriages containing the Chinese minister and the Chinese consul and their suites, accompanied by staff of ficers. The procession left the pier headed by a detachment of the Sixth Cavalry and having another detachment of the same regiment in its rear. The whole was pre ceded by a detachment of mounted police and it moved away amid loud cheering. The route was to West Ftreet and Rowling Green, up Broadway to Fourth street, then through Washington Square and up Fifth avenue to the Waldorf. The route of the procession was guarded by police and i densely packed with spectators. Bunting was displayed on all sides and among it the Chinese standard was continuously Been. Hardly had IA Hung Chang been settled in his spacious quarters in the Waldorf when an attache of the Russian legation called to arrange a conference between the Viceroy and the Russian minister. He was successful and though the time set was not made known, it is believed the con ference will be held to-morrow. Owing to past and other more recent events in the East the promptness of the Russians caused much speculation about the hotel but It was stated that the Russian min ister would be compelled to leave the city soon and for that reason sought an early Interview. If ex-Secretary John W. Foster and Col. Fred Grant, who were at the hotel when LI Hung Chang arrived, be not Included the Russian attache was the Urn caller upon LI Hung Chang. Later a party of Chinese merchants ealleil and were re ceived. To-night Hon. Geo. F. Edmunds who was once a minister to China, called to pay his respects. Li Hung Chang dined this evening on food prepared by his own cool; and retired at his usual early hour 9:3u o'clock. President Cleveland will receive Li Hung Chang to-morrow at the residence of Hon William C. Whitney and in the evening the Viceroy will attend a banquet at the Waldorf given in his honor by ex-ministers to China. A special guard of policemen have been thrown around the Waldorf and as long as Li Hung Chang is in tne building this guard will be maintained. Chinatown was gaily decorated to-night and an enormous crowd, many ladies with escorts, taking this occasion to explore that aectlon for the first time, overran the nar row streets. OX HOARD SHIP. Incident of the Trip from Sontlinmp. Ion lo rw York. NEW YORE. Aug. 23. A special corre spondent of the Associated Press made the trip across the Atlantic with LI Hung Chang and his suite. The following Is a detailed story of tin voyage: On Satur day. Aug. 22, a few minutes after 12 o'clock noon the steamer St. Louis left the South ampton docks with a full complement or passengers on board, among whom were caany very prominent people from all quar ters of the globe, tut no one who excited more interest than his Excellency, Li Hung Chang, attended by his suite and servants. Tne docks were crowded, all the vessels displayed their bunting, and as the St. Louis steamed from the harbor. th yellow ensign of the Chinese nation at the fore and the stars and stripes at the stern, a salute was fired from an English naval reserve training ship, and was acknowl edged by the dipping of the ensign on the St. Louis. All through the harbor a large number of yachts were met. all of them dipping their colors in honor of tho de parting embassador, who had been the re cipient of consid?rable attention during his stay in England. A shcrt distance out the United States armored cruiser Minneapolis was anchored, and as the. St. Louis drew near It was found that her sides were lined by th" sailors. The officers wore drawn up on the quarterdeck. th Chines? emb:m flying at the foremast and the guns send ing 'out a good solid American salute in honor of the Prime Minister of China. As the St. Louis passed the band on the Min neapolis piayed "The Washington Post March." Thi:? caused loud and prolonged cheers to swell up from the passengers rf the St. Louis, who were Justly proud of this fine representative of the American navy. During this time LI Hung Chang had been sitting or standing on the deck, a very interested spectator of all that was going on. and especially so in the antics of those nearest him. As it was a fine day, full of sunshine, he remained on deck an hour at least, and then retired to his state room until 5 o'clock in the afternoon, when he came on deck again for an hour. He did not wander abcut much on deck unles? the weather was good and the sea quiet and smooth, as he is not very sure-footed, and. as he remarked: "I would fall a great way if I once lost hold." In the evening he kept to his room engaged in conversation with his son and his two doc tors. Dr. Irwin, the English medical officer, and Dr. George Marke, the Chinese medi cal officer, who Insists on having an Eng lish name instead of his own Chinese. GUARDED WHILE ASLEEP. Every night at alout 8:50 the Chinese servants made up the berths in the state rooms occupied by the embassador and four of his guards, and by 9:30 they were tucked away for a good night's sleep, his bodyguard of four men being in attend ance in the adjoining room. This guard was relieved every three hours, there being a regular detail laid out for the entire trip, and there was never a moment that the Viceroy was not watched. While smoking one of these men will fix the Chinese statesman's cigarette in the holder for him, and when used up he takes It out and re places it with a fresh one, or if a pipe is used, the attendant nolds it for him and when he wishes to puff it is respectfully handed to him. . The embassador certainly didl not have the slightest trouble about anything, as the people about him were always on the alert to anticipate any possible desire on the part of his Excellency. The two doc tors, the Viceroy and Lo Fin Suh. first secretary of the embassy, were insepar able, and It was very amusing to see tnem together enjoying apparently the best of jokes. Their wit has been very .well sharp ened, and their appreciation of our Ameri can stories and Jokes is scmething wonder ful. The few who speak English speak it very well, and are very quick to follow. During the first day of tho trip there was a continual excitement among the passen gers as to who was Li Hung Chang and who the rest were and when the Viceroy appeared he was the recipient of quite a "passing in review." On Sunday. Aug. 2.1. Li Hung Chang arose at 5:30, very shortly after was served with his breakfast and by 7 o'clock was out on deck seated in some one else's chair, a usual error com mitted by the members of the embassy, with a largo hood over his head and wrap ped in a marcon rug. smoking his cigarette as usual and attended by Ms two physicians and two attendants. The mcrning was very misty and Li Hung Chans soon re tired to his state room, where he remained all day. This day (Sunday) happened to be the fifteenth of the seventh moon, the day on which all the people of China visit the graveyards and worship the memories of their ancestors, and it was therefore spent Indoors and, as one of the embassy remarked: "The Viceroy is paying his re spects to his forefathers In Imagination." It was noticed at all the meals served to LI Hung Chang that his son, tho Vis count, was the only one who ate with him. but all his attendants were about him in full numbers until the meal was finished. In the morning all were very much inter ested in the Viceroy asking questions abot a new clock that had been presented to him and tho necessity of putting the time back about an hour eaei day. It was very amusing to hear him say something to tho English doctor and playfully dig him in the ribs when he reached the point of his remark. He received no one In the evening but his physicians and his son. and was put away in bed at an early hour. RECEPTION ON BOARD SHIP. On Monday there was bright sunshine all day. The embassador arose early and after his breakfast took quite a long promenade and was attended by his usual guard. He was very muen interested in children, it being no uncommon sight to see him with several about him. and his Interpreters, speaking English. French and German to the little ones, much to the amusement of the distinguished traveler. This day (Monday) the embassador gave uj to receiving people who either had cards or were people of standing. Gen. George C. Williams spent quite a time in the Vice roy's state room. He was followed by Gen Louis Wagner, of Philadelphia, and as this conversation took place in the saloon all were very much Interested. The talk was principally on the leading political situation In the United States. Many ques tions followed on gold and silver, the candidates for the presidency and vice presidency, also about many prominent men of the day dwelling particularly on McKinley. Bryan, Hobart. Foster. Wana mal'er. Whitney and President Cleveland. Li Hung Chang asked General Warner if he knew Mr. Wharton Barker, of Philadelphia, and the quick reply came: "Oh, yes: very well. We are great friends." He said he was much sur prised when Mr. Barker last visited China, this spring. He only stopped three days, and when asked by LI Hun Chang why he hurried away Mr. Barker replied that he had to get back, because he was going to be elected President of the United States and must get back Immediately and attend to it. The Viceroy has been Impressed with the story of great riches in America, and al ways is anxious to know from each person he talks to about their wealth, and espe cially how much they each want before they are satisfied. The embassador also wanted to know about his reception in America; wanted to know lf there would be a great public demonstration, and whether the President had a palace on Governor's Island or In New York to re ceive him. and was very much surprised that no great appropriations had been made to receive him. and that no palace existed in our country, such as he had known in other countries, and the recep tion accorded him would be In keeping with the simple Ideas of our Republic. In speaking of bicycles, the embassador made the remark that It seemed as if all the world was on wheels, and If the roads in China were good enough undoutedly his people would ride bicycles. On Tuesday. Aug. 2T. after breakfast, the embassador took a short walk on deck, ac companied by his physicians and a guard of three. There was so much dlfilcuUv in getting about that be vesv shortly retired to his stateroom, where he kept busy all day chatting with the different members of his party, but receiving no guests. Their talk all day was cn the political questions now attracting attention In China, and the best methods to pursue In respect to build ing railroads. Li Hung is very much inter ested in this question, and predicts tint where there are now only 303 miles of rail road in China. In a few years on will e many miles under construction. The meth od probably pursued will be an invitation to foreign ennltal to come In and bul'd. granting it liberal concessions with tho privilege to China to purchase at a fixed price at a named time. SLIGHTLY SEASICK. While the passengers were at lunch and again at dinner the embassador attempted a short walk, but all to no avail, and when his dinner was served to him he was not feeling at all well. A very liberal meal had been prepared, but he simply tasted one or two things and then ordered it all taken away. This is the first time he did not feel like himself. Wednesday the sea was not rough, so the embassador appeared on deck quite frequently. In his walks he always stopped, patted the children's cheeks and would ask questions of them as to how they felt and if they were having a rood time. He sient much of the day with his phvsleians and Lo Flng Suh. talk ing about their stop In America and giving directions In relation to baggage which was In the hold and carefully guarded by about ten of his servants. If a stranger appeared a sign was given and they would run to gether and put a solid front to the sup posed transgressor. In an interview Just prior to his luncheon the embassador accepted an Invitation to be prest-nt at the concert to be given in the saloon in th evening. In the afternoon he was in the Indies' cabin for a while chat ting with a few ladies, and then went to his state room again. W hen nnMnd tht the concert was, to take place his chair. In whUh he was carried aboard the ship, and which is used everywhere, was taken down Into the saloon and placed in the middle near the piano. The passengers were all seated when, about 8:45 p. m., the embas sador, attended by the purser, representing the captain, appeared, followed by his suite and guard. Immediately every person stood up and gave him a royal welcome of hand clapping, with some cheers from the over exuberant fellows. He. smiled and bowed as if well pleased, was put In his chair, every one was seated and the affair com menced. The concert was given in aid of various seamen's societies in New York and England. Tho embassador was very well pleased with all that took place, everything being Interpreted to him by Lo Fing Suh until his usual retiring hour arrived 9.30 p. m. when he excused himself and wa put to bed. -While the embassador was present th Chinese gentlemen on the programme did not take part, as it is forbidden to sing m his presence, but as soon as he left they were ready to fulfill their part of the pro gramme and were recalled three or four times. At the end of the programme Lo Fing Suh made a speech In English that excited the wildest applause. He spoke of his pleasure in meeting Americans and said he was going to try and have the embas sador leave him behind for a short time, and ended by proposing that in the future there would be a closer union between the most ancient and the most modern ex ponents of civilization. LI THANES THE CAPTAIN. Thursday the embassador' was out very early for his walk and his usual smoke of half a dozen cigarettes, and shortly after 9 o'clock sent for Captain Randle and spent quite a little time in the state room. The great Chinaman thanked him for the at tention and courtesies shown him on board the ship, for the service and general accommodations of the party, praised him for the way the ship had been run. asked many questions about his duties and the duties of his officers, their salaries, etc., and wound up by saying that the St. Louis was indeed the queen of the ocean; that he was glad that he was fortunate enough to have secured passage on board her, and that all Americans should be proud in deed of having the best line of steamships on tho sea. The embassador entertained Senator John W. Daniel, of Virginia, and Mr. Theo dore W. Cramp, of Philadelphia, later. He questioned Senator Daniel about the gov ernment of the United States from the President down, the method of elections, the selections of the heads of different de partments, the construction of the whole government and the method of settling any disagreements that nllght arise. When the Chinese traveler talked with Mr. Cramp he first asked him all sorts of questions about shipbuilding, the quickest time men-of-war could be built in, the cost of same, and how much profit the builder has. He was also asked how much he was worth, and how much ho wanted to make, what investments he had and why he had made them, and then went on to a general talk about the richness of the United States. The Chinese embassador sat in tho ladies salon from 1 to 2 p. m.. and after wards retired to his own room, where, at 3 o'clock, the Abbott sisters entertained him for an hour with songs, accompanied by guitar and mandolin. He then pre sented them with his photograph and wrote a message In their autograph al bums. During his conversation with Mr. Cramp tho Chinese statesman asked him why lie withdrew some of his investments during the last few years, and after Mr. Cramp gave his reason the Chines traveler re plied: "Oh, yes, you don't want all your eggs in one basket." Thus again showing his knowledge and appreciation of some of our sayings. In talking of the religion of China tho embassador said that they were getting very liberal. In the evening the embassador gave his whole hour to playing with children, after which he retired. LI Hung Chang. Friday, was ud bright and early and spent the morning on deck until 10 o'clock, when he retired for awhile. He then came out again and was much interested in the shores of Long island. Sandy Hook and the passage up the bay to quarantine. En Itonte to New York. "BUZZARD'S BAY. Mass., Aug. 2S.

JOE M'AULIFFE BESTED KNOCKED OUT IX THE FOURTH KOIXD BY JOG CIIOYSSKI. Sent to the Floor with a Riglit-IInnd Swlnu on the Jnw-The Giant Weakened In Training SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 28. The Occi dental Athletic Club gave a series of fights to-night in its new pavilion at Woodward's Garden. The place was well filled with a crowd of 5.0C0 persons. The chief event was an eight-round "go" between Joe Choynskl and Joe McAullffe, the first mm defeated by Peter Jackson when the latter came to this country six years ago. Mc Aullffe has been on the retired list for two or three years. He began training for. the present contest, weighing 2SC pounds, and entered the ring to-night at about 223 to 230 pounds. The men presented a great contrast as they shook hands for the first round. McAullfTe towered nearly four Inches above his antagonist, with an 'ad vantage of three Inches In reach. His ap pearance Indicated that he had reduced his weight at the expense of his strength and endurance. Choynskl, on the contrary, looked the picture of health. He was trained to the hour, and what he lacked in height, weight and reach he made up In wonderful muscular, development and cleverness. He entered the ring at about 170 pounds. . McAuliiTv was knocked out in the fourth round. Choynski assumed the aggressive from the start and hit McAullifc when and where he pleased. The giant was com pletely out-matched and was a plaything In Choynski's hands. Little Joe played on big Joe's wind and when the giant came up for the fourth round he was perceptibly winded. In thl3 round Choynskl went at his man like a demon. First a poke in the stomach with his left and a Jab in tho face with his right soon made McAullffe groggy. Finally in the middle of the round Choynskl swung his right with terrific force. It landed on McAuliffe's jaw and the fight was over. The giant's legs weakened and he fell to the floor with a crash. He could not get up within the required ten seconds and the fight was awarded to Choynskl. The latter was unpunished and was in good condition when the fight ended. His clumsy antagonist managed to land on Choynskt's face once or twice and sent his head back, but that did not keep the smaller- man from going at him re lentlessly. McAuliffe's efforts to reduce weight told on his strength and he could not keep up the fast pace set for him. The fight by rounds follows: Round 1 Choynski assumed the ag gressive and led with his left for the wind, getting away without a return blow. He repeated this blow three times and made McAullfl'e grunt. Choynskl reacu'd the face with his left. Both led with eir left and countered on the face. 7hoynskl reached the face with a left swing and McAullffe returned the compliment w:ih bis left on Choynskl's face three im?s In quick succession and got the left in the face In return. The round ended 'n Cnoyn skl's favor. Round 2 Choynski reached the wind twice with a left swing. McAullffe, in guarding his wind, left an opening for the lace, which Choynski took, advantage of. leading and landing on the face with left swings three times in quick succession. McAullffe did some leading, but his clever antagonist got out of reach of the giant"' long arm. McAuiiff e landed on the bo ly and got a hard one on the nose, which brougm blood. Choynski went at his man like a demon and landed with his left on the wind and his right over the heart. McAuiiff e clinched to avoid the hard body blows. Choynskl rushed his man and landed hard on the body and face with his left. Mc Auiiff got in his left on the head, which put Choynskl's head back. The round end ed In Choynskl's favor. Round 2 McAuiirfe led with his left and Choynski ducked. McAullffe ducked a wicked left swing. Choynskl reached the face twice with his left and again reached the wind with the same hand. Tne re mainder of the round was a series of left swings on the wind and left jabs in the face from Choynskl, which told perceptibly on the big man. At the end of the round McAullffe was somewhat winded. He reached Choynskl two or three times, but his blows lacked steam. The round ended with a vicious left swing from Choynskl, which staggered McAuliffe. Round 4 Choynskl saw his advantage and went at h?s man from the ring of the bell, smashing him with his left in the wind and right drives on the Jaw. He soon had his man groggy and one last right on the chin put the giant against the ropes, from which he reeled and fell to the floor. He looked to be able to get up. but evi dently had enough of Choynskl's swings and punches, so he remained down until the referee had counted ten. The fight between Spider Kelly and Gus Herget. light-weights, was given to Kelly after a fiercely fought battle. "Forcing: Them Into Line. To the Editor of the indianapolls Journal: Under the above caption there goes tip a wall from the local free-silver organ Aug. 16 that savors of the truth. The railroad employes of the various line; running into Indianapolis met to organize a sound money club, not a "gold-standard club." The writer gives us credit with having an audience of twelve; I feel safe In saying there were more than fifty railroad men present, and desire to say that as far as the I., D. & W. employes are concerned. not one of them has been "coerced,',', or forced into this undertaking. The fact of the matter Is the employes were eager to join the club, as is evidenced by the fact that we secured seventy names within a short time. The "pay-car dodge," mer ticned by our distinguished visitor, will not work, as the "circular" he mentions was unheard of until the night of the meeting. The names were secured by employes cir culating a paper which was heeded: "There will be a meeting of the railroad employes for the purpose- of organizing a sound money ciub." This club was organized irrespective of party podtics. The Question tame up in the meeting as to pledging our support to any one candidate, and it was distinctly understood that we would not piedge our support to one candidate, but would work and use our influence to de feat "free silver." ThU distinguished vis Iter was not admitted Into the presence of this Intelligent body of railroad workers until he solemnly promised to "do the fair thing," In which he failed. Of course we. understood it was a Litter dose for him to swallow, and it may have astonished him so that he could not tell the truth. He wilt also find that the "executive committee will not be made up o( railroad officials." The railroad employes are alive to theii interest, and If they do their duty, toward which all indications point, their names will be written alongside of those leaders who are making a tight to keep our coun try from being thrown into a wrecked con dition, from which it will only "recover, if at all, after years of struggle and poverty to the laboring men.

SOME RALSTON HISTORY EXGIM2ER OF TIIH MILK SQUARE OSCK CHARGED WITH TRl'ASOX. Man Whom Indlnnnpollw rropoe to Honor tilth a Fonntntn Wns vrlth Aaron Dorr. A chapter of interesting history has come to light In connection with the propositkn to build a memorial fountain to Alexander Ralston, the engineer who platted the original mile square of this city. William Wesley Woollen has been much confined to his room lately and has passed the time in reading the works of Thomas Jeffer?on. Among them he read Jefferson's letters on Aaron Purr's filibustering expedition into the Louisiana purchase about lSj3-1. At that time the Mexicans were preparing to go to war with Spain, which iney ultimate ly did. throwing off the Spanish yoke. Rurr fitted out an expedition, ostensibly with the purpose of settline the new Southwestern country, but it was always believed that he had a gigantic scheme in his mind which had for its purpose the siezlng of New Orleans, then a small town settled mainly' by Spanish and French emigrants. After that it is believed that he intended to undertake tho conquest of Texas, Mexi co, Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi for the purpose f establishing an empire, over which he was ambitious to rule. Many persons were drawn into the scheme, amongst them the ill-fated Harman Rlen nerhassett. Alexander Ralston accompanied the ex pedition as chief engineer. He was then a young man of roucn ability and was looked upon as a soldier of fortune. Rurr's plans were matured on Blennerhassett's island. located in the Ohio river, near Marietta. Rltnnerhassett was a man of wealth and furnished a large portion of the capital for buying boats, fitting them up with pro visions and arms for the expedition to New Orleans. After a time the boats started down the Ohio river and Rurr went to Tennessee to visit General Jackson for the purpose of interesting him in the enter prise. He stopped at the old General's home for a week, and the latter manned a number of boats and started them down the Cumberland, with the understanding that they would meet Rlennerhassett's fleet in the Ohio river. After Jackson's fleet got under way, he thought the enter prise savored of treason and sent a mes senger after It to recall the men and boats. All this time Rurr had represented that President Jefferson was acquainted with the plan and had given his approval to it. Rut when it came to his ears President Jefferson declared that it was a treasonable adventure and that Burr's purpose was to disrupt the Union and make himself mon arch of some of the best territory in the United States, including a portion of the do mains 'purchased from Napoleon and the Mexican province of Texas. He Is sued a proclamation against the promoters and warmd peop.e against Joining the expedition to Nvw Or leans. At the same time he ordered the ar rest of the principals. Officers of the United States army captured Rlenmrh:s sett and Ralston with the remnant of the fillibustcrs who had not deserted after the proclamation at a point near Natchez, on the Mississippi river. Rurr was captured at Lexington. Ky. As Rlennerhassett's isl and lav between Virginia and Ohio, the Attorney-general of the United States decided that the principals In the treasonable ex pedition were under the jurisdiction of Virginia, as that State claimed that her line extended to the Ohio side of the river and took in Rlennerhassett's island, where the treason was hatched. Rurr, Rlenner hassett and Ralston were transported to Richmond, Va., with the others who had started on the campaign against New Or leans. Rurr was defended by . Henry Cla: and others of the most famous lawyers of the United States. He was acquitted, as was also Rlennerhassett. Inasmuch as the principals were cleared of the charge of treason. Ralston and the others were never tried, but were liberated. There was al ways some doubt as to the guilt of the unfortunates who embarked with Aaron Burr in his ambitious efforts to gain an em pire, as it is regarded as probable that they believed the expedition was simpiy or ganized to colonizo the new country. That was the defense that Rurr made. Ralston's connection with the affair is not very clear ly defined, and whether or not he was aware of the ambititous designs of his leader will probably never le known. It Is supposed that he was to .act as cldef en gineer in making camps, setting up boun daries, etc. Rurr was regarded as a likely man to help the Mexicans in their struggle with Spain. They were unorganized and lacked leaders and he was a man of suffi cient daring to undertake the conquest of the great territory. W. R. Hollowav's book on Indianapolis refers brieffy to the fact that Ralston was connected with Rurr's expedition and states that he remained in the West after it failed. "There does not seem to have been any thing discreditable to Ralston." said Mr. Woollen lat night, "although I find but brief mention of him in Jefferson's letter ordering the arrest of Rlennerhassett. The story struck me as being of some interest and I have given it to you Just about as I remember it from Jefferson's letters. Aaron Rurr always insisted that he had no idea of wresting away part of the Union, but President Jefferson was very prcsistent in prosecuting the case against him. At any rate, pub.ic sentiment was j-o str.nx agalik-t Rurr that he was practically banished from the country, and while he lived there was alwavs a suspicion that he had been tainted with treason. It was a gigantic thing to undertake to help the Mexicans in their fight with Spain, but Rurr was just the man for it. He had undoubtedly one of the most powerful minds of any man known in American history, and was un scrupulous enough to have attempted to found an empire with New Orleans for its capital, embracing Mississippi, Texas and Mexico in its boundaries." EPW0RTH LEAGUE, HOSPITAL. A Plan to He Prewenteil to the State Conference. The Epworth League cabinet of Indiana held an ail-day meeting yesterday in the parlors of the Y. M. C. A. for the purpose of talking over matters relative to the State conference which is to be held next summer. The cabinet is the executive body of the Epworth League of the State.

Mrs.-Margaret Royer, superintendent of the department of mercy and help, suggested that it was time that the Eywor h League should take steps to found sv Hospital. The matter was discussed and will .? presented to the State conference.
