EARTH IS SO DRY That Nothing is Being Bone in the Fields of China. Chicago, June ;. Letters from Pres byterian missionaries stationed in Chi na have been received at the Woman's Presbyterian board of missions in this city. The Chicago missionaries in Pao Ting Fu are: The Kev. J. V. Lowrie. Mrs. A. P. Iovrie, Ir. J. Taylor, Dr. and Mrs. lodge, the K'-v. and Mrs. Suncox and the Kev. and Mrs. J. A. Miller. In one of the letters, dated April IS. the writer refers to the boxer movement and praises the magistrate of'Pao Ting Fu for the friendly reception he gave the missionaries. The letter reads in part: "The magistrate of the place said that he had posted a proclamation full of threats to the boxers. He sent ten sold 1'ts to watch the chapel the first part of the night and ten others the last part. He ais.i sent a messenger out here (the missionaries live outside the city near one of the gates) to say that soldi-is patrolled the locality all night. Today the boxers put up a poster saying that the god of war had come down to ex terminate the foreign devils. The drought throws many out of etnplov ment. Nothing is being done in the lieids because the earth is so dry " The other I. -tier is dated April 27. and tells of a fight between Koman Cath ode and boxers having taken place not far from I'ao Ting Fu.

Chinese Con sul General Ho Yow pays: "My people will never submit to the detention camp scheme. We will take the matter to the courts, but I fear that even if we are beaten there the Chinese will fight before allowing themselves to be herded over to Mission Rock by the board of health's inspectors. The feeling among the Chinese is such that they would prefer to risk their lives rather than be compelled to remain in the power of the American physicians for an indefinite period. 'Our physicians will take samples of the blood of all sick Chinese who cannot possibly recover. As soon as all hope is gone incisions will be made and a vial of blood taken, so that our doctors will be a toe to determine the cause of death. "This course has bi-en forced upon us by the board of health's action in re fusing to allow our physicians within tiie lilies where they can keep a watch on the work of the city's doctors. They cannot prevent us from taking material for tests before the man is dead." HOLD-UP ATTEMPTED. Men Employed For $16 at Street Fair Now Ask $30. The Commercial club settled with Dr. C. 1). Gray, manager of the street fair, for Sl,817.0. Dr. Gray's contract called for one third of th cross receipts. The receipts were S i .r.f.H.fii and his third would have been $2,521.30. As he had incurred bills and also taken an extra per cent from the special attractions these amounts were deducted and the settlement was made without difficulty. The manage ment of the fair has now to look after the bills. Kills that were never thought of are coming in and men employed for $16 for the week are asking $30. FIRE ON PAVEMENT. This One Cost John McQee a Fine of $10. John McGee was arrested yesterday by Officer Lucas for burning trash on the asphalt pavement at Sixth avenue and Jackson street.

Paying Material ill Come From These Places. Lowest Bid Was $1.24 Per Square Yard. The local brick companies received a rude awakening at the meeting of the city council Monday evening. For the first time In ten years the paving con tracts were snatched from under their eyes and the brick will be furnished by the factories at either Lawrence or St. Joe. There Iuib been no end of trouble for a year because the paving has been re tarded. A large part of that contracted for last year was not completed because the contractors could not get brick enough. The contractor was John Ritch ie, representative of the Capital City Vitrified Brick company. L. Blackmail hovered on the horizon for some time and he occasionally got a small contract but Mr. Blackman was eliminated by some means this season and he has cut no figure In the paving contract. The man who fought the local com bine was O. Swanson. and until last night he has not succeeded in getting any of the contracts. He could not buy brick to complete with the local con cern and the prices received from the local companies did not enable him to compete with their representative. But the estimate of the city engineer was raised and Mr. Swanson came in ana captured nearly everything in sight. While the-contract was not formally awarded to him a meeting will be held Friday evening at which time he will undoubtedly receive the contract for he is the lowest bidder except on one or two small sections upon which he sub mitted no bids whatever. The paving to be awarded is as fol lows: Topeka avenue from Fourteenth street to the city limits. Topeka avenue from Second street to Third street. Kleventh street from Harrison street to Topeka avenue. Harrison street from Eleventh street to Twelfth. Monroe street from Sixth avenue to Tenth avenue. Taylor street from Seventh street to Eighth avenue. Alley between Seventh and Eighth. Mr. Swanson bid only on Monroe street, Topeka avenue from Second to Third street and Taylor street. His bid for the paving was $1.24 per square yard. John Ritchie and C. B. Ramsey bid Jl.25 and $1.24 4-9. Wall & Hanley bid $1.28. Black, Laird & Blackman bid $1.30. Mr. Swanson's bid for Fort Scott curbing was 44 cents per foot. He bid T.4 for Colorado red sand stone and 52 for white. R. B. Kipley bid 45 cents for Fort Scott stone for curbing. Ritchie and Ramsey bid 55 cents for Colorado red sand stone. Wall and Hanley were the only bid ders for the grading and their bids ranged from 22 to 24 cents per cubic yar.i. The bids were referred to a special committee composed of Councilmen Betts and Myers who were unable to submit a complete report at once owing to the fact that none of the bidders had submitted bids for all the paving to be awarded ana it was decided to hold meeting Friday evening to receive the report. Meanwhile there was some excitement among the brick men. L. Blackman arose and said: "I notice that Mr. Swanson has submitted samples of fet. Joe and Lawrence brick. I believe that the council is Interested in having this work done as soon possible and that you do not want to award the contract to some one who can not supply the brick. Mr. Stevens. the manager of the Lawren.ce plant, is here and lie says that he has not made any prices for Mr. Swanson for brick. He lias not asked the price of Mr. Ed son or myself here in Topeka and if you are in a hurry for the pavement I think that you should know what you are doing." Mayor Drew said: "That statement is not entirely correct. Mr. Swanson asked me today if I saw Mr. Stevens to ask him the price of brick and I did so and gave Mr. Swanson the figures." Mr. Stevens then explained that his company had brick to sell and that he had come to Topeka for the purpose of disposing of brick. He said that he was satisfied that his brick would stand any test and would be satisfactory for pav ing. He said that he had made prices to Wall & Hanley. Councilman Warner then arose and asked Air. Stevens: "Will you sell your brick to any one besides Wall & Han ioy?" Mr. Stevens We are in the brick business. Mr. Warner What we want to know is whether you will sell brick to Mr. Swanson. Mr. Stevens We have brick to sell. This was as near as the Lawrence brick man came to answering Mr. War ner's question and the impression left was that there was danger that Mr. Swanson might find his supply shut off. There was a movement to limit the contractor to Lawrence brick but this was before Mr. Stevens dodged Mr. Warner's question. The council will make thorough tests of both St. Joe and Lawrence brick. PAVING DELAYS. The delay in the paving was again before the council. P. H. Forbes who lives near Buchanan on Thirteenth was present. He said: "I am here to ask the council to af ford me some relief. For two months the street in front of my place has been torn up and closed. During that two months the pavers have laid only about two blocks of paving and we are becoming somewhat anxious." This brought Councilman Elliott to his feet and he said that he had in vestigated the paving question thor oughly and had found thaty 15 blocks had been laid In the past six weeks. He said that the block complained of could be put down in a few days. He named the blocks which had been paved and said that he was' becoming tired of the continued complaints about slow paving. A. L. Williams who lives on Fillmore street and who has watched weary months in vain for the pav'g force was present and he asked Mr. E!irtt what paving had been done on Topeka avenue as he had stated that several blocks had been completed on that ave nue. Mr. Elliott replied that the space oc cupied by the street ear tracks had been paved and that it required nearly as much time as paving the entire street. T he . controversy was then dropped without any action being taken. SOCIAL AND PERSONAL.
