PREDATORY POWERS la What Goldwin Smith Calls Xhosa Who Seek to Partition China. Toronto. June 13. Prof. Goldwin Smith, discussing the situation, in China, was asked what he thought about the attitude of the European powers toward that country. " If s ny people in the w orld hive a right to a country," said Professor Smith, "the Chinese surely have a right to the country w-hich they are oelievei I to have inhabited for 4.000 years. It is, j too, probable than China will be the j next scene of butchery and havoc in tne abased name of civilization. Fight ing seems in fact to have already be gun "Would not the result cf a war there I be increased progress where progress j aoo civilization nave Deea slow? .was asKoa. "Th' Chinese are at least cartlv civ ilized, they are Industrious In the high est decree. Though their general mor ality may . be w eak, their industrial morality ia exceptionally strong. There is no reason why the pacific influences of commerce and intercourse should not act upon them as they have acted on the Japanese, who half a century ago might have been deemed proper subjects for philanthropic aggression." "You think, then, there is a motive for the advance on China?" ' The great predatory powers are di-vidina- China Into what in . the cant language of their territorial rapacity are called 'spheres of influence.' " was the reply. "That is to say, they are stakirg it out for conquest with the intention If the people resist of mow ing tiem down. A fearful vista of slaughter and desolation may presently open. The population ,of China is rous-hly estimated at 400,000.000. The people are fanatically hostile to for eigners, as in truth, considering the opium wars, they have too much rea son to be " "Would the Chinese be a match for a modernly equipped . army ?" 'ThDueh sintrularly unmilitary. they are utterly reckless of life. At trie same time they are totally unprovided with all modern appliances of war. and in the case of a conflict they would be butchered by the millions." "What about the missionaries in China?' he was asked. "One thing is clear all the mission ary's should be compelled at once to withdraw to places of security, or if they choose heroically to remain in posits of danger they s-hould be warned that they do this, as did the early mis sionaries, at their own risk. It is mon strous that a religion of peace and good will should be made, as too often it has been in the hands of its indiscreet apostles, a brand for kindling the flames of murderous war."

DONNELLY ACCEPTS. Nominee For Vice-President Writes to Middle of Road Populists. Hastings, Minn., June 13. Ignatius Donnelly has written a letter to thj committee accepting the nomination of the People's party for vice president. He Eays: "It is a crime to compel S0.000.000 fre people to depend for the first essential of human society upon a few thousand bankers, who make the people pay heavily for doing for them what the people are abundantly able to do for themselves. The banker's note is re deemable in greenbacks. Why not. then, destroy the banknotes and issue the su perior paper the greenbacks? "The worii is today trying to solve the problem.

Boy Adopted by Twentieth Fighters Shows Excellent Development The following sketch of the FiUplno boy brought back by the Twentieth Kansas has appeared in "Pro et Con," a little paper published at Sedan, of which Collin H. Ball who has charge of the boy Is one Of the editors: We print below the picture of Juan Guriendo, a little Filipino boy who ac companied the Twentieth Kansas to America. Juan, Hie every boy of ten whose eye is ever open to novelty and the wondrous things of the big world; whose limbs never tire, and whose ears are never closed to the things to hear, became infatuated with the soldiers. He visited the barracks clad in the abbre viated costume of his country and en tertained the Kansas boys with hi3 curious antics and ludicrous wrestle with the English language. He brought them mangoes and bananas and imi tated their every move. He mastered the manual of arms, which he perform ed with a wooden stick. He drank in every act and deed and learned the ins and outs of a military existence as it appeared to the vision of a wondering boy. When the regiment embarked on the big transport for the voyage to Amer ica, little Juan begged to accompany it. The boys assisted him to gain the ship and he became a stowaway. On the long voyage ce was a source of amusement and entertainment to offi cers and men alike. Clad in khaki trousers and blue flannel shirt, he pad ded barefoot the deck from bow to stern and he came to know everyone. When San Francisco was reached he was shown the city by the boys, who took turns as his conductor. When the regiment was mustered out, Lieutenant Ball assumed respoasibility for bis care and determined to give him the chance of an education. He had two objects in view: first, to learn the capabilities of the Filipino and his true character under favorable in fluence, and, second, to provide a home for a lad among a foreign people. Ac cordingly, Juan was brought to Sedan and on arrival his available vocabulary of English was less than a dozen simple words. Mr. Ball spent two months teaching him as much of the language as possible, aild. on January 1st, turned him over to the teacher or tne primary school. It is difficult to explain the earnestness with which this little fellow JUAN GUERINDO. The Kansas Filipino. began the battle for knowledge among the bright American boys and girls. He brought all of his Asiatic application to bear on his studies, and we are happy to announce that his progress has been phenomenal. All the intuition and im itation of his race was brought in play; he copied letters and figures by the hour and repeated a single word hundreds nf times. So rapid has been his progress that after six months in America and four months In school is able to con verse fairly well with strangers and writes splendidly a perpendicular hand, spelling every word at his command correctly. He is now a mailing clerk on this paper and may some day be the Manila correspondent for Pro et con Juan has demonstrated his ability to take care of himself in the rough and tumble games of boys of his age and is popular with his playmates. He luiiy demonstrates the fact that boys are bovs the world over, and that their tiredi'.ections are much the same whether Malay or Kanaka, Caucasian or Senetrambian. We will shortly arrange to send to each of our subscribers a beautiful souvenir folder containing an auto graph letter in little Juan's own hand writing together with a large half tone picture of the boy. The folder will also contain a sketch by Collin Ball entitled "The Heroism of a Private Soldier." The same beina a simnie description ol a striking example of bravery and heroic devotion on the part of a soldier which was one of the incidents of the Malolos campaign in the Philippines It occurred at the battle of Guiguinto, one of the fiercest engagements of the war, and the battle in which the Twen tieth Kansas lost the greatest number of men. The sketch will not be publish ed except in this souvenir folder, which will be given to subscribers ot this rea per oniv. There will also be no otner medium through which a signed photo graph of Juan Guerindo can be obtain ed together with bis autograph letter to "The American tioys ana oiris. He Broke TJp the Game.

Aator Syndicate Will Build Across Honduras. New York. June 13. A special to the Times from New Orleans, says: The Astor syndicate has secured from the Honduras government concessions for building an isthmian railway across the republic of Honduras from Puerto Cortez, on the Atlantic to Amalapa on the Pacific. This is probably the largest railway deal ever projected in Central America. It means a line 200 miles long connecting ocean with ocean. The Hondurian legislature has Just granted the demands of the New York capitalists and President Sierra signed the papers in time for the Americans to catch the steamship Still Water, which arrived here today. James E. Bleek man, the managing director, who left New York three months ago to engineer the negotiations and Colonel Duncan K. Cooper of Nashville, were on the boat. Tne Ascr syndicate i reany m Honduras syndicate and is composed of New York capitalists. Among the back ers are John Jacob Astor. Senator Chauncey M. Depew. Thomas Scott, Minor C. Keith. Mr. Sprague. Mr. Val entine. Mr. Jenkins, Colonel Cooper and others. Mr. Bleekman is hurrying to New York to shape the details of the orga nization. Work will begin on the Interoceanic line at once and by the terms of the concession it must be completed in four years. By the grant the Honduras syndicate can issue and float bonds to the amount of $20,000 in gold to every mile of road. With New Orleans for the port of shipping the scheme is for the Illinois Central to drain the great Mississippi valley for the Central American trade in conjunction with the United Fruit company. It is said that Minor C. Keith, a leading spirit in the fruit trust, will be general manager of the Honduras Interoceanic railroad. NEW YORK OR THE W EST.

Senator Piatt says: "Governor Roosevelt is not to be thoutht of in connection with the vice presi.le-noy. Governor Roosevelt has SF.id that he would not accept the nom ination. That declaration must be ac cepted as final " Senator Piatt only laughed when tbe rumor was quoted to him that certain corporations are anxious that Governor Roosevelt shall not serve another term in the executive chair at Albany. The senator pooh-poohed also the report that he was trying to force the nomina tion for vice president upon Governor Roosevelt. -T can see nothing new in the situa tion." said Senator Aidrich of Rhode Island. 'The party is harmonious and united in its support cf President ile Kiniey. The contest over the nomina tion for the vice presidency is a whole some sisn of vital interest in the cam paign and of a desire in every part of the country to have a sharp in th as sured success of the next administra tion. Of course I favor the nomination of Secretary Lens.
