How hard a mother has to coax before
she can get her child to take its first step.
It is just about as hard to induce a
confirmed invalid, especially one suffer
ing with weakness of the lungs, to take
the first step to health. There is a lack
of confidence, and perhaps a crushing
experience of a former failure which
depresses and discourages the sufferer.
In spite of doubts and fears you will
take the first step to health when you
take the first dose of Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery. It never fails to
help. In ninety-eight cases out of one
hundred it never fails to cure. Never
mind about the symptoms. Obstinate
cough, bleeding of the lungs, spitting of
blood, emaciation, night-sweats, condi
tions which if neglected or unskillfully
treated terminate in consumption, have
all been perfectly and permanently cured
by "Golden Medical Discovery."
Sick persons are invited to consult Dr.
X- V. Pierce by letter, absolutely without
fee or charge. Every letter is regarded
as sacredly confidential. Each answer is
mailed in a plain envelope. Address Dr.
R. V. Pierce, Invalids' Hotel and Surgi
cal Institute, Buffalo, N. Y.
" My wife was taken sick in August, 1807,"
writes Vm. Huelbig, Esq., of Benton. Franklin
Co., Ills. "The doctors and neighbors pro
nounced her trouble consumption. I had two
physicians but they did not do much good. She
coughed night and day ; could not lie down
for coughinjf and she got down very low. I
thought she never could be cured. Then I trot
four bottles of Dr. Pierce's Oolden Medical Lis
. covery and she took all of it. and is all right
dow. She is stouter than before we were mar
ried. She i taking care of the baby and does
all the housework including the washing."

New York, July 21. The trouble in
China Is already influencing the whole
sale tea market of this country. With
in the last few days the price of tea
has advanced from one to two cents a
pound, and still further increases seem
likely, inasmuch as with the continu
ance of the difficulties in China it will
cost more to import. When the out
break began it was computed that
there were about twenty-eight million
pounds of tea in this country. That
Btock Is being rapidly bought up by re
tailers, and should the hostilities ex
tend to the tea growing districts a rapid
rise in the price of the commodity will
result. The great tea producing cen
ters of China, however, are not yet
threatened with the strife in which the
boxers are engaged. Even should the
murderous movement extend the fields
whence come most of the teas which
are used In this country would not be
Effected for many months. Should the
boxers ever get so far south as the
iTang Tse Kiang valley and block the
Yang Tse Kiang river, by means of
which at least fifty per cent of the tea
grown in China is earired to the sea
ports, consumers of tea will have to pay
considerately more for their favorite
beverage than they do now.

that to interfere forcibly with his free
dom of movement would precipitate a
crisis in the southern provinces of China
and certainly would prevent him from
doing anything for the foreign minis
ters, if he is acting in good faith. Feel
ing that the powers themselves are now
willing to admit the error made by their
naval commanders in not following Ad
miral Kempff's advice at Taku, the of
ficials here deprecate the adoption by
any of the powers of further measures
in the same wrong direction. Possibly
this subject may form the basis of some
rapid diplomatic exchanges.
Beside Mr. Wu, who came with his
two cable messages, Secretary Hay saw
this morning Senator Burrows and suc
ceeded in converting that senator in a
half hour's talk from a pessimistic view
regarding- the situation. It is frankly
stated that he had all along felt that the
legationers had been killed, but he was
now satisfied that they were alive and
being protected by the Chinese officials.
General Leonard Wood also saw Sec
retary Hay.
He is deeply concerned over the fate
of Missionary Condit Smith, his son-in-law,
who, with his wife, was in United
States legation in Pekin, but he is now
also disposed to believe that they have
been saved with the others.
There have been no fresh orders to the
troops, and in fact there is nothing new
in the military or naval situation, save
the brief casualty list from Admiral
New York, July 21. A dispatch to the
Tribune from London, says:
Mr. Conger's message to the state de
partment came like a. voice from a tomb
and startled Europe.
One of the best informed men of the
veteran military service said that he ac
cepted the text of Mr. Conger's message
as a full and satisfactory proof that the
ministers were alive. When asked how
he could explain the protracted defense
of the inclosure protected by a palisade
of moderate height, he asserted that the
military guards had probably seized a
commanding position on the great wTall,
where they had held the mobs at bay.
He also was confident that the minis
ters and the women had been trans
ferred by a secret passage under the
wall into the imperial city and had been
hidden in the palace. Another veteran
of the consular service in China inform
ed me that while he could not account
for the American minister's reputed
message, he could not comprehend how
it had been possible for so weak and in
defensible a position as the British em
bassy inclosure to be held for weeks
against persistent assaults of soldiery
armed with artillery and that he was
reluctantly forced to believe that the
ministers and all refugees had perished.
Paris, July 21. Yu Keng, the Chinese
minister here, today handed to the min
ister of foreign affairs, M. Delcasse, an
Imperial edict, dated July IK, giving the
assurance that -all the foreign ministers
in Pekin except Baron von Ketteler, the
the German minister, were then safe
and sound, under the protection of the
imperial court.
At the council of ministers today the
minister of foreign affairs. 'M. Delcasse,
read a telegram from the emperor of
China, asking the mediation of France
with foreign powers. The telegram was
signed by Kwang hu, and not by Pun
Chan, the son of Prince Tuan. The reply
given by M. Delcasse was that the re
quest would be considered only upon ab
solute knowledge that the following acts
had been accomplished:
First That if efficacious protection
and absolute freedom of communication
had been assured between the French
minister at Pekin and his colleagues of
the diplomatic corps, and their re
spective governments.
Second When Prince Tuan and the
high functionaries responsible for the
actual "events had been dismissed the
government to await Inevitable punish
ment. ,
Third When the authorities and
bodies of troops throughout the entire
empire shall have received an order to
cease hostilities against roreigners.
Fourth When- measures have been
taken for the rigorous repression of the
M. Delcasse notified the cabinet that
all the powers had responded favorably
to the proposition to pre vent, the ex
portation of arms to China.
London, July 21. The admiralty this
afternoon received the following tele
gram from Admiral Seymour:
"Tien Tsin and neighborhood entirely
evacuated by Chinese."
London, July 21. Sir Chih-Chen-Leh-Feng-Loh,
the Chinese minister to
Great Britain, visited the foreign office
this afternoon and communicated what
purported to be an imperial edict giv
ing assurances taht on July 18, all the
foreign ministers at Pekin, except
Baron Von Kettler, -were safe and
sound, and under the protection of the
imperial court. The Chinese minister
did not see the British minister of af
fairs, Lord Salisbury. The alleged edict
was received without comment. The
correspondent of the Associated Press
has the highest authority for saying
that not the slightest credence is at
tached by the British government to
this latest statement and that the gov
ernment is also quite unable to under
stand the credence which is accorded at
Washington to Minister Conger's mes
sage to the state department there.
Lord Salisbury, according to this au
thority is convinced of the truth of the
original reports of the massacre of for
eigners at Pekin.
Brussels, July 21. The charge d'af
faires at the Chinese legation here this
morning received a telegram from Sir
Chih-Chen-Ich-Feng, the Chinese min
ister at London, saying he had just re
ceived a telegram from the governor of
Shan Tung, transmitted by Sheng, the
administrator of telegraphs at Shang
hai, stp.ting that all the foreign repre
sentatives at Pekin were safe. This dis
patch having been communicated to the
Belgian minister of foreign affairs, M.
Paul de Favereau, that official demand
ed that he be put in communication
with the Belgian minister at Pekin and
informed as to the situation of Belgian
refugees in that city.
London, July 21 The unreserved cred
ence given to Minister Conger's mes
sage by officials at Washington con
tinues to occasion surprise in London.
The absence of any date and the ab
sence of acknow-ledgment of receipt of
the telegram from the state department
are considered here as fatal drawbacks
to acceptance of the message as a reply
to Secretarfy Hay or, as anything but
a spontaneous appeal for help, sent off
long prior to the alleged date of the
message. This all absorbing topic Is
fully canvassed in its pros and cons, but
all theories admittedly present diffi
culties which only add to the obscurity
of the situation and render the unravel
ling of the puzzle the harder.
The announcement of the British
cruiserd Bonaventura's departure from
Woo bung, as alleged In pursuit of Li
Hung Chang, comes somewhat as a sur
prise after the honors paid the Chinese
viceroy at Hong Kong, but confirmation
of the news will meet the approval of a
large majority as Li Hung Chang's pres
ent attitude is regarded. as being char
acteristically dubious.
As Li Hung Chang was booked for
Shanghai, the departure of the warship
from the nearby port of Woo Sung seems
to indicate a suspicion on tne part ox
the government that his real objective
point may be elsewhere, where he would
not be so easily reached by representa
tives of the powers.

New York, July 21. Sir Walter Hil
ller, who has just recently been ap
pointed adviser to the military authori
ties in China by the British government
was a passenger on the steamship Lu
cania which reached port today from
Liverpool. Speaking of his mission Sir
Walter said:
"My appointment is that of a political
office and I am under orders to proceed
at once to loin Sir Alfred Gazelle, who
is the present commander in chief of the
British forces in China. I know the
country thoroughly .and speak the lang
When shown the dispatch received
from Minister Conger yesterday, Sir
Walter said:
"This is the most hopeful news that
has come from China for a long time.
However, I would not trust information
received through Chinese sources, for
they are like all Asiatic people tney
will lie whenever it is to their interest to
do so. It would be to their interest to
disseminate false information if the
ministers had been massacred."
When told that Secretary Hay had
urged all the powers to make all haste
to Pekin. Sir Walter said that the dim
culty of travel in China was one of the
great problems against which foreign
ers would have to contend. The road
from Tien Tsin to Pekin was well nigh
impassable. The Pel Ho was navigable
only a short distance, and military
equipments could not be taken over the
roads with any advantage. On making
an advance to Pekin, he said, the first
step necessary would be to clear Tien
Tsin of the Chinese and protect the base
of the allies. This would be necessary
before any advance could be made.
"The Chinese," he continued, "have
surprised and puzzled me. Even know
ing them as well as I do I never ex
pected that they would make such a de
cided stand."
Sir Walter will leave for China via
A Document of 20,000 Words to Be
Made Public Next Week.
Washington, July 21. The report of
Fourth Assistant Postmaster General
Bristow on the Cuban postal frauds was
submitted to Postmaster General Chas.
Emory Smith today.
The present report is a document of
20,000 words. There are 60 exhibits,
comprising copies of letters, testimony,
statistics of various kinds, affidavits,
etc. The report makes numerous recom
mendations, but the postmaster general
is withholding any information concern
ing them. He has carefully considered
the report, which he says he will make
public next week.
Charges the Senator With Garbling a
jLetter on Imperialism.
Boston, July 21. Ex-Governor George
S. Boutwell has made a statement criti
cising Senator Hoar and charging the
latter with so garbling the contents of a
private letter as to make it appear that
Mr. Boutwell indorsed the senator's de
cision to support President McKinley.
Mr. Boutwell publishes the letter in
full, which was an indorsement of Mr.
Hoar's speech of April 17 in the senate,
when he attacked the president's Phil
ippine policy and declared McKinley de
served defeat for his position and was
destined to get it.
Mr. Boutwell says Senator Hoar's
speech was distributed to the Anti-Imperialist
league for its caustic arraign
ment of President McKinley and not as
an indorsement of the senator's support
of the president in the coming cam
Noakes Thought Ooebel Was to Be
Killed in a Fight
Georgetown, Ky., July 21. Robert
Noakes, whose testimony in the Powers
case began yesterday, was cross-examined
by Judge Tinsley today. He
said he was deceived into a talk with
Colonel Campbell at Big Stone Gap,
Va., prior to his arrest, where the latter
met him, as Mr. Kramar, interested in
mining. The conversation led into poli
tics and then to the Goebel assassina
tion. He said Campbell did not promise
anything for his testimony.
Witness said that he had an idea that
Goebel was to be killed, but he thought
it would be in a fight and not by as
sassination. When told by John Pow
ers to keep out of range as some fellows
in the lobby were going to do the work
for Goebel when he came in, he hurried
off to prevent the assassination.
Noakes was re-examined regarding
the trip of himself and his men to
Frankfort at the time of the meeting
of the election commissioners in Decem
ber. He repeated that Powers had in
structed him to have his men crowd into
the state house so the governor would
have an excuse to call out the militia.
When they got there, however. Governor
Bradley refused them admittance. Wit
ness reiterated that the object of Pow
ers and others was to intimidate the
commissioners. Witness was still on
the stand when the court took a recess
till afternoon.

excitement about the vessel over what
was considered a very narrow escape, and

Capt. J. G. Waters is not at his office
today. He has been wandering around
town, sojourning briefly at the state
house, on corners, under the shade of
friendly trees, always making a point to
keep away from people who might en
gage in conversation with him.
This enforced solitude is due to the
fact that Mr. Waters, who under dif
ferent circumstances is very congenial,
is putting together the speech which he
will make in the Fort Scott convention
next week presenting the name of A. M.
Harvey as a candidate for lieutenant
"Good morning, Mr. Waters," said a
Journal man to the captain today.

Harvey and Waters, cleared the atmos

which the noted Topekan was abroad

Told on the Witness Stand in
, the Jester Trial.
St. Louis, July 21. A special to the
Post-Dispatch from New London, Mo.,
Francis P. Shuck, aged 48, of St.Louis,
Mo., told this story from the witness
stand at the Jester murder trial today:
"In 1871, I was journeying from Knox
county, Mo., to Audrain county, Mo., to
visit relatives near Mexico. When I
reached Renick, I met an elderly and a
young man with two wagons and a
buffalo calf. I talked with the young
man, whom I afterwards learned was
Gilbert Gates. .He told me he was from
Kansas and was going to his home near
Chicago. He wanted me to ride with
him to Sidney, 16 miles, but the old man,
whom I afterward learned was Alexan
der Jester, objected. He said to me:
'You had better go where you started.' "
Mr. Shuck said they parted, but after
wards he met the old man driving along
the road near Sidney. This time he was
by himself, but had two teams. Jester
yelled Hello as they passed.
The witness said he saw Jester again.
This time he was in the Paris, Mo.,
Jail. Mr. Shuck said he had seen in the
newspaper that it was alleged that Jes
ter had killed Gates, and he called at
the jail to see if the prisoner was the
same old man who had objected to his
riding with Gates. He called at the jail
and talked to Jester about 20 minutes.
The prisoner at first said he did not re
call seeing Shuck, but finally asked him
if he was going to appear in court
against him. "I told him," said the wit
ness, that nobody knew I had seen the
two teams at Sidney. The prisoner then
told me that Gates cut his own throat.
Jester then choked up and I left him."
Country Boy Wanted to "Do Some
thing Mean."
Bennie Brown, a 14 year old boy who
lives at Wakarusa with his grand
father, Colonel Brown, was arrested
this morning for stealing a bicycle from
one of the A. D. T. boys. Toung Brown
was walking around the state house
and saw the messenger boy ride up and
leave his wheel while he went in to de
liver a message. He couldn't resist the
temptation, and so got on the wheel,
rode it down to Paine's pawnshop and
traded it for a silver watch.
The A. D. T. boy was informed by a
bystander that a boy had taken his
wheel and he easily tracked him to
Paines. Toung Brown had not left the
store before he was arrested by Officer
Lucas. At the police station he was
very penitent and when asked why he
stole the wheel said: "I don't know;
just because I wanted to do something
mean, I guess." He came up - from
Wa arusa on the blind of the fast
mail last night, he said. When search
ed a revolver was found.
Just as young Brown was brought
into the station another bicycle was re

Trhth About Labette County is at

The Burton managers claim the nomi
nees for senator and representative in La
bette county. Some of the Burton work
ers told a State Journal reporter yester
day that the convention could have been
managed so as to have instructions for
Burton, but that such action was deemed
unnecessary. It was conceded that the
nominee for senator A. A. Osgood, was
not committed, but nevertheless the Bur
ton people claim him. A letter to the
Journal from Oswego contains the fol
lowing: "W. J. Lough, of Altamont. an avowed
Burton candidate for state senator, was
defeated in the county convention, and
A. A. Osgood, of Jarsons. who is non
eommital upon the senatorial question,
was nominated iy a very decisive vote."
In Business Circles Depends i Upon
Settlement of Labor Troubles.
New York, July 21. R. G. Dun & Co.'s
Weekly Review of Trade says :
The midsummer vacation has already
disposed of the prophets who gave it a
"week or two, but there are a few signs
to indicate Its probable duration. The
compact of lake ore producers in order
to sell standard Bessemer ore below $5.50
at lower lake ports this year, with coke
held at $2.50, much lessens the probability
that the market will wait for Bessemer
pig to go far below $lo, and some in

Without formal agreement the woolen
Industry adopted in part the same course,
many mills having stopped or reduced
force, so that experts believe that less
than half the capacity is now at work
because the nature of the next season's
demand does not yet appear. There has
resulted more willingness to sell wool, es
pecially where warehouses are not plenty,
and jjrices average fully two cents lower
than in February, but manufacturers are
inquiring more earnestly just now to find
out what goods they can see than where
they can get materials.
Further important changes the exact
nature of which may not be reported are
appearing in the heavy decline of packer
hides at Chicago, ranging from c to c,
with sales said to be from 40.000 to 50,000,
and also in heavy sales of leather to man
ufacturers. The sharp fall of two cents in wheat
and four cents in corn appears to reflect
public conclusions, after hearing much
evidence, official and unofficial, regarding
the extent of injury to both grains. The
shipments go on at a tuiet and moderate
pace, in three weeks from Atlantic ports,
5,661,501 bushels of wheat, flour included,
against 6,505.693 last year: from Pacific
ports, 1:691,597 bushels, against 1,278,648 last
year, and in corn 9,620,568 bushels against
9,289.999 last year.
Failures for the week have been 231

Chicago. July 21. WHEAT The wheat
market opened strong and during the fore
part of the session today received gooa
support. Liverpool was higher and a pri
vate cable from that city reported no
Argentine wheat offered while American
wheat was cheaper than the Russian and
Danubian. September opened c over
yesterday at 783-c, sold to 7sc,
dropped on commission house selling to

Kan., receiver and shipper of grain.
New York, Julv 21. Local and speclfio
Influences in some case's largely suggest
ive of manipulation were responsible for
what activltv and strength were shown
by yesterday's stock market. More than
20 per cent, of the total transactions wiCf
contributed by the American sugar relink
Ing and almost 10 per cent, by American
tobacco. Seven stocks were dealt In to
the extent to exceed 10.000 shares. These
seven stocks monopolized more -than 50
per cent, of the total dealings of the day.
Such a showing is proof that it was not
large consideration of legitimate news
which influenced the bulk of the opecu
lation. It may, however, be proof that
the stock market Is In strong hands, and
that it is dangerous to operate on tha
short side. Confident predictions are
heard that the bull - movement is to be
carried further. Certainly if speclaltK-a
subject to local or domestic consideration
are in mind the fact that the London
stock exchange will be closed .should be
of advantage to the operators on th3
bull side. The recent improvement in tho
iron and steel stocks is obviously in tlio
direction of discounting future favorable
developments In trade. There are some
signs of an approaching change for the
better in iron and Its collateral markets.

Grain Letter.
WHEAT Liverpool cables were
higher today, which was In sympathy
with our advance of yesterday, and the
feeling at the opening was bullish. Heavy
buying orders appeared and the markets
advanced c above last night's closing.
On the advance there was a lot of wheat
for sale and the market broke back to
77T6c for September. It steadied up and
advanced to 7Sc again, and after fluctu
ating between 78c and 78Vic balance of the
session closed at 7814c to 7s?ge. North
west receipts were only 265 cars, against
409 a year ago. , Clearances, 2O8.00O bush
els. The temper Is turning stronger and
cash demand Is improved. We look for
wheat to gradually seek a higher level, and
believe purchases on the breaks will re
sult in sure profits.
CORN Corn was strong again today,
closing at the top. Cables were fcd
higher. Receipts are light and shipments
liberal. The market had a hard break,
which was nothing but a shake-out. Wa
look for a better market.
OATS Oats were quiet and steadv.
PROVISIONS There were only 9,000
hogs in Chicago, and market strong at
the yards. Pork is advancing rapidly,
just as we. predicted, and will go muclj
higher. J. C. GOINGS.
