Lasting Indefinitely Is What Stead

Tew York. July 17. "W. T. Stead ca

The pope is said to have remarked as
he saw the Italian troops departing for
the far east that this was the first war
since the Crusades in which all nations
had united to make war for the Chris
tion cause.
The illusion is more apt than felici
tous, for the struggle between the east
and west, which began when steel-clad
Europe, hurled its If upon the Paynim
hordes which defiled the holy sepulchre
lasted for over 300 years, and at the end
of that prolonged death-grapple of con
tinents the combatants were left face to
face very much as they were at the be
ginning. It is to be hoped that we are not on
the verge of another 200 years war at
the other end of the Asiatic continent.
The gravity of the crisis in China
hitherto has never been realized, even
faintly in Eurcpe. Otherwise England
would have long ago patched up any
kind of a truce in South Africa which
would have enabled her to have used
her army for the defense of the threat
ened outposts of western civilization.
Even now when the massacre of the le
gations has sent a thrill of horror
through the world, few dream of the
immensity and hopelessness of the
struggle upon which they are Invited to
embark with, such loud cries of ven
geance. The fact is that the white world is
face to face with a determined effort, by
no means confined to China, on the part
of the colored races, to assert their
rights to live their lives in their own
way, without the perpetual bullying of
pale faces.
The colored races have awakened to
the fact that the supremacy of the
white man is due to no inherent super
iority but solely to the fact that he has
superior weapons. Hence the Chinese
have provided themselves with the best
artillery and magazine rifles, and have
employed expert instructors.
Lord Wolsdey told me long ago he
considered the Chinese the very best
fighting material in the world.
They were better even than the Rus
sians, because the Russian soldier

The destruction of the legation, how
ever, terrible it may seem to be, was
nevertheless natural.
It was the result and inevitable corol
lary of the seizure of the Taku forts and
the massacre of their garrison. Human
nature is much the same all the world
over, and if we had been in a similar
position the white men would have act

Gen. Grosvenor Thinks There Is TSo
Cause For Haste.
New York, July 17. Congressman
Charles H. Grosvenor, of Ohio, said last
night that he knew of no particular ne
cessity for President McKinley's return
to Washington.
"Do you think there will be an extra
session of congress?" General Grosve
nor was asked.
"No," he answered. "I see no reason
for haste. Sereno E. Payne, chairman
of the committee on ways and means;
John Dalzell, of the committee on rules,
and about thirty other members are in
Europe. Then we need more light on
the true condition of affairs. That is
bound to come soon. I guesa everybody
is reasonably sure that every foreigner
in Pekin was killed so nothing would be
gained by marching on that city now."
"What of the condition of affairs at
Tien Tsin?"
"There again," replied General Gros
venor, "there is room for doubt. Some
say the allies began the attack; it was
a great mistake if they did. Every day
Minister Wu at Washington is issuing
some kind of statement, but in every
one of them there is the same purpose
cunningly presented to throw the re
sponsibility on the foreigners for the
present state of affairs. In the July
number of a leading magazine Minister
Wu has a twenty-five page article tell
ing of the great love China bears for
America and asserting that this coun
try should reciprocate. I don't think
he would write such an article to-day?"
"The Chinese seem to fight desperate
ly," the reporter suggested.
"Yes," General Grosvenor answered.
"For some inscrutable reason the Ger
mans have for years been drilling the
Chinese and furnishing them with arms
and ammunition. The war department
has long been aware that China is well
equipped with modern armaments and
ammunition. Now she is using them
against Germany. It is too bad that the
navies of the world cannot be utilized
in the present trouble. While I believe
the government will act promptly and
effectively, I do not see how matters
can be improved by undue haste. Bet
ter know all the facts; then we can pro
ceed advisedly."
British Plan to Make a Hostage
of the Yieeroy.
New York, July 17. A dispatch to the
Journal and Advertiser from London
says :
In the lobby of the house of commons
last night it was declared that the gov
ernment had issued orders for the seiz
ure of Li Hung Chang and for his im
prisonment at Hong Kong pending his
deportation to seme place in India, in
the event of his carrying out his prsject
of proceeding northward by sea, in com-
p.liance with the summons which he has
received from Pekin. English gunboats
and cruisers are hovering ore the coast
of the province of Kwan Tung with or
ders to intercept any vessel, no matter
what flag it flies, having the viceroy on
board and to secure his person.
It is resolved to hold Li Hung Chang
as a species of hostage and moreover
it appears that Sir Henry Blake, the
governor of Hong Kong, has obtained
strong proof that the old viceroy of
Canton, in spite of his professions of
friendship for the foreigners, is in thor
ough sympathy and league with his old
friend and patron. Prince Tuan. Sir
Henrv cables that no less than &u
000 Mauser rifles and a quantity of
quick-firing guns have reached Canton
since the beginning of the year and
have, with the knowledge and approval
of the viceroy, been judiciously distrib
uted among those most likely to do ex
ecution therewith against the foreigners.
Gen. Fred Grant Commends American
Troops Under Him.
Washington, July 17. Brigadier Gen
eral Fred D. Grant, U. S. V in submit
ting to the war department an interest
ing account of the fighting around Imus,
in Cavite province, from September 2S
to October 8 last, closes by saying:
"All the officers and men under my
command behaved well in all engage
ments, unless I except the movement of
Captain Holiis' battalion of the Fourth
infantry from Imus on October 3. which
was feebly and not well conducted.Some
deserve special attention for their
bravery and energy. Among these I
would mention Captain Reilly. of the
Fifth artillery, who conducted the move
against Binacayan, October 6; Lieut.
Knabenshue, my aide de camp, who
commanded the scouts during the whole
time; Lieut. Fenton. Fifth cavalry A.
D.C.who conducted a company through
from Bacoor to Imus October 2 and was
much exposed in the fights which oc
curred October 2, 3 and 6. and Captain
Cowles, who commanded the reconnois
sance on October 8 which resulted in a
fight at' St. Nicholas. Major Lee and
Captains King and Fuller, of Gen. Law
ton's staff, who were with me on Octo
ber 3 and 6. deserve special mention for
their gallantry and my personal thanks
for the assistance they rendered me."
300 Japanese Defeat 500 China
men at Stevenson, B. C.
Chicago. July 17. A special to the
Record from Vancouver, B. C, says:
A desperate fight took place last night
at the fishing town of Stevenson on the
Frazer river, between SOO Japanese and
Chinese. There is a big fishermen's
strike on at Stevenson, involving 7,000
Japanese and white men and 3,000 Chi
nese and the Japanese and Chinese were
A street row between a Japanese and
a Chinaman occurred. over a dispute as
to whether or not a Japanese army of
10.000 men could whip a Chinese army of
100.000 in the present war in China. The
Japanese cut off the Chinaman's queue
to emphasize his argument and in five
minutes 30 Japanese engaged in a hand
to hand fight with 500 Chinese. The
small posse of police was powerless to
interfere and thousands of white fisher
men watched the fun. In 20 minutes
the Japanese had broken so many Chi
nese noses and cut oft" so many queues
that the Chinamen fled.

For Any Missionaries That Have Not
Already Reached the Coast.
New- York, July 17. While hope for
the missionaries in Pekin was practical
ly abandoned several days ago, there
still remained a gleam of hope that the
little band reported on July 6 as at Bao
Ting Fu might have escaped the fate of
their colleagues in the capital and that
some who were reported to have gone to
Pekin were detained and are still at
their stations. But the lack of further
news has caused grave anxiety for the
safety of those at Pao Ting Fu.
The Belgian engineers who fled in the
first part of June and reached the coast,
said the missionaries had taken refuge
in the house of the Chinese ruler but the
uprising started in the Shan Tung pro
vince and the boxers, in order to reach
the capital, marched northward through
and by Pao Ting Fu which lies 100 miles
southwest of Pekin and is the capital of
the province of Chi Li. Unless secreted
by the Chinese rulers, there seems little
chance that they have escaped.
There were two missions at this place,
that of the Presbyterian church, which
also supported a hospital and that of
the Congregational church. Several from
both missions escaped during the first
part of the disturbance and three or
the Congregationalists were reported to
have gone to Pekin to attend the an
nual conference of their church. But
they may have been prevented going
and be still at Pao Ting Fu. These
three were Rev. Horace T. Pitkin, Miss
Mary S. Morrill and Miss Annie A.
The six Presbyterian missionaries re
ported on Juiy 6 to be still in Pao Ting
Fu were Rev. F. E. Simeon and Mrs. Sim
cox. Dr. G. Tardley Taylor. Dr. and Mrs.
Courtland Van Rennrfselaer Hodge and
Dr. Maud A. Mackey. Rev. F. E. Simcox
and Mrs. Simcox. who was Miss Mary L.
Gibson, were both born in Pennsylvania.
They went to China in a few months
after their marriage. Mr. Simcox is 23
years old and Mrs. Simcox is 32. Two
children, six and four years old. are with
them. Mr. Simcox's nearest relative is.

His brother. B. F. Taylor, lives in
Washington. He was graduated in medi
cine from the University of Pennsylvania,
passing his examination with high honors.
Dr. Courtland Van Renssalaer Hodge,
son of Rev. Dr. Hodge, secretary of the
Presbvterlan board of education in Phil
adelphia, and nephew of Alexander Van
Renssalaer. went to China within the last
vear. He is accompanied by his wife,
formerly Miss Elsie Campbell Sinclair.
He was born in Burlington. X. J., and she
in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Dr. Hodge is a
graduate of Princeton university and was
president of the Presbyterian hospital in
Philadelphia for several years before sail
ing. They were married after they had
agreed to devote their lives to missionary
work in China.
