A Russian View on the Outcome of
New York, June 22. H. Rothstein, the

the chief adviser of the Russian finance
minister and who has been in this city
for some days past consulting with
local men of finance about a proposed
Russian loan, will sail for home to
morrow. Mr. Rothstein was asked last
night for an opinion of the probable
outcome of the present troubled con
dition of Chinese affairs.
"To read your papers." he said, "one
miarht thing all China aflame; that the
foreign ambassadors and missionaries
bave been killed and that there is

Of that I have no doubt."
"Will China retain her nationality?"
"Why not?" replied Mr.-Rothstein.
"Surely the powers will not want her"

we don't want one foot of Chinese soil.
Why should we want it? Have we not
Siberia? There we have a vast country
rich in mines and with millions of acres
of grain lands. With oui great Sibe

years. In that time even it can hardly
"I confess there is a great question to
settle. The Chinese are a hard people
to understand. They are intensely
proud. They believe their country is
the greatest in the world. That mis
sionaries should go there and tear down
their ideals and idols and try to set up
what to them are barbarous practices
has aroused them. Some of our mis
sionaries, I am afraid, use small tact.
"China has a vast population. She
now has 450,000,000 people and they in

a strong central government for so
many when there are 150 or more dia

survive the present trouble?"
"The empress dowager is a very clev
er little woman. I think she will put
down further insurrection. The emperor
is a fool. The empress alone rules. She
will surely stop any further outbreaks."
"But the Chinese forts fired on the al

countries have been killed in the fight

The indemnity will be very large."
"Will the powers claim money or ter

China will pay in gold."

Berlin, June 22. Andrew D. White,
the United States ambassador here, said
to the correspondent of the Associated
Press today, referring to the Philadel
"The renomination of President Mc
Kinley was expected by every thinking
man abroad and at home. It was a due
reward for most eminent services dur
ing one of the most difficult periods in
our history. Of course, like every other
president and especially like Washing
ton, Lincoln, Grant and Cleveland, he
has been bitterly attacked for every
thing he has done, but future historians
will undoubtedly rank him among the
"The nomination of Governor Roose
velt was clearly In obedience to a de
mand by the entire party and highly
as he is prized as governor he is sure
to render service both during the elec
tion and as vice president. While hold
ing that office, he can continue to exer
cise the most happy influence upon Am
erican politics. He certainly ought to
accept the nomination.
"The platform is what was expected
and allowing for some minor differences
of opinion, as there always are regard
ing party platforms, it will aid in the
certain triumph of the Republican

Salaries of Teachers in Havana Are
Havana, June 22. The postal frauds
have rather swamped the scandal ex
isting in the university, which has been
the milking ground for some of the
best known men in Cuba, who as un
der professors received $24,000 a year
each. There were 72 of these profes
sors and 24 assistants, some of them
having no classes at all and others
only one or two students. Many of the
professors drew government salaries.
When this was called to General
Wood's attention he immediately in
augurated reforms, which resulted in
cutting down the list to 46, including
assistants, which is enough, consider
ing that there are only 450 students.
For instance, instruction In Greek was
divided into three parts, history, gram
mar and literature; it is now combined
under one professor of Greek.
