A dispatch to the Tribune from London says: The news of an attack on the Chinese force assembling at Nam Ten. outside Pekin, is anxiously awaited, according to a Japanese telegram from Taku. A combined detachment of Russian and Japanese cavalry was to have encoun tered this hosUle body on last Saturday. The Japanese are more successful than the rest of the combined contingent in getting through runners, probably be cause of their superior knowledge of the Chinese character and language but even General Yaroaguehi's message pub lished at Tokio yesterday was dispatch ed from Pekin as long ago as August 18. The Japanese general's telegram gives no hope of the capture of the imperial family and, indeed, it would seem that this cavalry force abandoned the chase on reaching the village of Mansan.where Us commander learned that the empress and the emperor, under General Ma's escort, had started for the west. The approach of nine thousand of the Shan Tung troops with fifteen guns to attack the line of communications in the rear of Pekin emphasizes the necessity of further reinforcements. These Shan Tung men are among the best of the European drilled soldiers in the Chinese service and have been carefully trained and organized under foreign instructors by the former governor. Yuan Shih Kai. They are armed with German Mausers and Krupp long range guns. With Pekin and its rabble to pacify and with these enemies to deal with out side, the allied commanders have none too many troops at their disposal. Pekin, moreover, is not a self-supporting town. It has always to be fed by conveys of rice from the souin and if these are stopped it is urgently necessary that no time should be lost in clearing the line and getting up supplies from the coast. The situation in the southern provinces is much complicated by the existence of undoubted revolutionary, as well as anti-foreign movements. The nineteen men executed by a viceroy are alleged to have belonged to tne reform party, which cherished the intention of rising against the provincial authorities and ultimately overthrowing the Manchu government and restoring Emperor Kwang Su to power. This movement is said to be widespread through the Yangtse region and to be encouraged fcy the agents of Rang Yu Wei's league. w hich is largely financed y ' reforming Chinese in Singapore, America and Aus tralia. It is believed also to be working In close association with the famous M. Kolahoaui and other secret societies. In fact, southern China is in a dis turbed and restless condition and further important developments are expected. DEWEY BY THE SEA. Admiral and His Wife Go to Narra gansett Pier For a Visit. Narragansett Pier, R. I., Aug. 28. Ad miral and Mrs. Dewey drove on beauti ful Ocean road this afternoon, the ob served of all observers. The admiral ar rived last night. He is in excellent health and spirits and this forenoon he, Mrs. Dewey and Mrs. Washington Mc Lean walked up and down the broad piazza of the McLean cottage enjoying the breeze. The admiral's visit is most timely, especially as the cottage element, which, no doubt, he will prefer to meet, will in a few weeks have the Pier to themselves. Much of the admiral and Mrs. Dewey's time will be spent in Newport. They have promised Perry Belmont and other fashionables to be present at several functions to be arranged in their honor. WIFE SHOWS PAS SION. Assaults Husband, Destroys Orchard and Burns the Barn. New Haven, Conn., Aug. 28. Mrs. Annie Reynolds,. 40 years old, the wife of a respectable farmer of Montowese, is held at police headquarters under bonds of 42.000 for assaulting her hus band, cutting down his orchard of pear and peach trees and setting fire to the barn, all as a result of an explosion of anger when her husband left the house. Mr. Reynolds objected at the break fast table to his wife's receiving the at tentions of several farmers of the neigh borhood and in a passion of anger his wife chased him out of the house with a shower of pots and dishes. Not con tent with this treatment of the question, Mrs. Reynolds followed up her victory with a raid on the premises and a gen eral assault on the property of her hus band. TWO W OMEN IN THE CASE.

Stands on Sidewalk All Day With the Hope of Sleeting a Man Friend. New York, Aug. 28. Persons In the office buildings on Park Row had their curiosity aroused yesterday by a slim young woman who stood at the edge of -the sidewalk opposite Frankfort street all day. fahe wore a blue skirt, a white shirt waist, with a light blue tie, and a plain straw hat. She was first noticed standing there about S;30 o'clock in the morning. "When it was seen two hours later that she was still standing in the same place people be gan to talk about her. After that a rather close watch was kept upon her. Every now and then some one at a window would announce, ' She's still there," and up to 4:30 o'clock in the af ternoon she was not seen to move from the spot where she was standing in, the morning. During the day several per sons stopped and engaged her in con versation. One old woman in particu lar stood talking with her for half an hour. She answered every one reluct antly, but never changed her position. At 4:30 o'clock a correspondent spoke to her, telling her that people had seen her waiting all day and asked if he could be of any service to her. "Oh, no," she said smilingly; "I'm simply waiting for a friend of mine who works in a big factory in Frank fort street. Once before I waited for him here and met him at noon." "Did he expect you?" "Oh, no. He was just going to lunch and saw me stanidng' on the corner. I live in Brooklyn, you know," she con tinued, "and I came over today to look at the stores. At first I thought I might see him going to work. Then 1 thought he might come along at noon time, but he didn't. I had waited so long then that I concluded to wait until evening." "Are you not hungry and tired?" was asked. "No, indeed," she answered. "I had my lunch and I've been so interested watching the people that if I am tired I haven't noticed it." At 5 o'clock she had disappeared. No one could be found that had seen her go away. SH IRT WAIST MAN. May Irwin Comes to His Defense Coat is Superfluous. New York, Aug. 28. The heroic shirt waist man is the theme taken by Mary Irwin. She says: "The shirt waist man is a pioneer and a hero. He has the "spirit of '76.' He has rebelled against the tyranny of fashion and declared that every man has cer tain inalienable rights, among which are comfort, convenience, and the pur suit of happiness. "Men are Just beginning to find out what women discovered long ago that clothes are made for men, not men for clothes. Women have emancipated themselves, and now it is men's turn to fight for his liberty to dress accord ing to the weather. "It has always been a common mascu line conceit that women were the 'slaves of fashion." We women have listened meekly to this charge for years. Many of us have even been persuaded that It was a well founded accusation. Yet all the while we were altering the fashions whenever we pleased. We adopted man's dress whenever we thought it was su perior to ours. We ordered tailor-made suits. We bought men's hats, stuck feathers in them, and wore them every where. We took a fancy to men's collars, ties, and belts, and appropriated certain styles for our own use. "At present the shirt waist man is in the minority. If he can only hold out, like Conger in Pekin, until other men get sense enough to help him, he will soon have Dame Fashion herself on his side. CONNECTICUT'S CENSUS. An Estimate Based on Unofficial Data That Its People Number 880,000. Bridgeport, Aug. 28. Although Samuel A. Eddy of Canaan, supervisor of the census in Connecticut, has declined to make a statement relative to the total enumeration, it has been estimated by those familiar with the existing condi tions that the official count will disclose a total population of about 880,000 in Connecticut. This figure may be accept ed as a close approximation of the final result. The population of the state at the time of the last census in 1890 was 746,258, and a growth of 134,000 would demonstrate the fact that Connecticut is becoming a popular abiding place with homeseekera.

People Already Taking Interest In Project. WILL BOOM TILE STATE Interest In Kansas Will Be Re awakened. Several Sites Which Hare Been Suggested. John E. Frost, president of the Kansas Exposition company, sees success as the reward if the members of the company work together to Inaugurate the greatest feature Kansas has ever produced, the 1SHM semi-centennial celebration. Mr. Frost has always been one of the publia spirited men who has never missed an opportunity to advertise Kansas. He believes that the exposition will do more to advertise the state than anything that has ever been proposed or carried out. Mr. Frost was elected president of the company while in Galesburg, 111. He tele graphed his acceptance. While in Illinois he found the people already talking of the exposition by reason of the notices in the eastern newspapers. In speaking of the exposition Mr. Frost said: "I have been away a month, and I am now just getting my bearings. I accepted the presi dency with the assurance that not only every member of the board but that the leading people of Topeka. and the state will give their support and co-operation to the work. I believe the enterprise if carried to the complete success I hope it will attain will be productive of more good to the state than any other move that has been instituted for many years. "I know no reason why the exposition should not be equal to Omaha, and while it can not be expected to attain the mag nitude of the Chicago exposition or the proposed St. Louis exposition in 1903, I think it will have many points of excel lence equal to any of them. We have a very efficient board of directors, repre senting all parts of the state, and every member is taking hold In earnest, with the determination to make the enterprise a notable success. One of the measures taken by the board at the recent meeting was to provide for a vice president from every county. Each board of county com sloners in the state will be asked to lect the vice president from their county. This is an important matter, and will have immediate attention. "The two most important lines of work at present are the placing of the stock, which we desire to see well distributed over the state, and the giving of publicity to the enterprise within the state and out. This matter is in charge of a committee of publicity and promotion, of which F. I. Coburn, secretary of the state board of agriculture, is at the head. "As to the matter of a site for the ex position, it is too early to take definite action. It will be impracticable to decide this until after the meeting of the legis lature. Various sites have been suggest ed, such as Gage park and contiguous property, the fair grounds and land ad joining, the Keith tract, and Garfield park and adjacent property. I think any one would answer the purpose, but am rfVt prepared to say which is the best. In securing a site the prime motive will be to get the very best possible for exposi tion purposes. The Topeka street railway company is taking an interest in the pro ject, and the officers have promised their hearty support, and will run extensions to whatever site is selected. "During my recent visit in Chicago and Galesburg I found very much interest evinced in the move, which Illinois people learned from the newspapers, and I had innumerable promises of assistance from leading people. I think the manufactur ing and wholesale interests of Chicago will heartily espouse our cause and give us assistance in securing favorable action by congress when the time comes," FLOATS ON BAFT 750 MILES Thrilling Experience of a Chicago Woman in Alaska, Tacoma. Wash., Aug. 28. Mrs. Hewitt, wife of Dr. Hewitt, one of Chicago's weli known physicians, has had an exciting trio in Alaskan wilds. Alone she floated down the Koyukuk river a distance of 750 miles. Two years ago she left Chicago to Join her husband, who iiau gone to Nome. At Dawson she met Dr. Crothers, of Pitts burg, a friend of her husband, and with him arranged to go down the river on the ice. When they reached Fort Hamlin they heard of rich placer strikes at the head of Koyukuk and went there. While out with a dog team Mrs. Hewitt lost her way and spent the winter alone in a cabin. She shot moose and lived on meat. When the ice broke up she man aged, although worn to a skeleton, to make a raft. With a stock of moose meat she started down the river on a 750-mile triD. Once the raft hit a sand bar and she was thrown into the water. After 28 days she reached the Yukon river. hen she was picked up by a steamer which sighted her on the day after she reached the Yukon she tainted, late Nome ad vices sav the brave woman mav vet suc cumb to the hardships she endured. ANARCHIST DEPORTED Because He Is Considered an Undesir able Immigrant. New York, Aug. 28. The Italian Ouida who arrived in this country three weeks ago on the Kaiser Wilhelm II, in com pany with the alleged anarchist Marcesa, another Italian, was ordered excluded today on instructions from the treasury department. Ha will be deported to Europe. Marcesa's case has not been decided. Guida and Marcesa were sus pected of being anarchists when they arrived in this country and there were reports that Marcesa had come to kill President McKinley in accord with a plot hatched in Italy. The men have been detained on Ellis island. The board of special inquiry of the immigration bureau decided to hold Guida no longer as it was shown that he had no connection with Marcesa either in political or other manner. Be cause he was an undesirable immigrant and because he had come over as a stowaway and no one had paid his $10 fine it was decided to exclude and deport him from the country. Marcesa's case is still in abeyance. " RUSSIA SEEKS A LOAN. failing in the United States the Czar's Agent Turns to Germany. Bremen, Aug. 28. The Russian finan cial agent, M. von Rothenstein, who fail ed to place the desired Russian loan in the United States, is now negotiating with German bankers. Notwithstanding the present Germano-Ruseian friendship, however, the banks are disinclined to lend the money, for there appears to be some foundation to the rumor that Ger man money will be needed shortly for a national loan. It Is thought that France will finally agree to take up the loan and that the czar will reward France by Visiting the exposition. Red Cross to Assist India. New York,Aug.28.

CONTEST IS BITTER. Much Feeling Being Displayed at Hearing. The Madden-Randolph Case ia Submitted. "I have -always been for Burton for senator and I'm for Burton now," This is the statement made by John E. Hessin of Manhattan, to a State Journal reporter today in the senate chamber, where the Hessin-McKnlght election contest Is being beard by the state election board. This declaration by Mr. Heasln places an entirely new phase upon this con test. The friends of Senator Baker have counted on Hessin as being one of their supporters, and Mr. Baker has been of the opinion that Hessin would support him. Owing to this belief by the Baker men the contest between Hessin and Mo Knight over the senatorial nomination has been regarded aa a Burton-Baker controversy, when, as a matter of fact. it is a quarrel between supporters of Mr. Burton for senator. It was reported in Topeka yesterday that Mr. Hessin was a supporter of Burton. When asked today for a veri float ion of the rumor, Mr. Hessin made the foregoing staptement, Attorney General Godard and State Auditor Cole are hearing this contest. George A. Clark, who by law, ia the third member of the board, is not tak ing part in the hearing of this contest- Mr. Clark lives in Geary county, which is a part of the senatorial district in volved, and as he was one of the man agers of Mr. McKnight's campaign, he felt disqualified to sit in Judgment over the controversy. The introduction of evidence was commenced yesterday afternoon and concluded today. There was quite a crowd of politicians from Wabaunsee, Riley and Geary counties present, being the partisans of the two candidates for senator. Mr. Hessin conducts a large part of his own case, assisted by R. J. Brock of Manhattan. W. 8. Roark of Junction City, represents Mr, Mc- Knight. The two men, Hessin and Roark, are keen lawyers and the conduct of the case by them leads to frequent clashes which form the most interesting rea ture of the hearing. As an example of this, Roark was examining a witness this forenoon when Hessin turned ana in an undertone addressed in conversa tion a man who was sitting near him. Roark stopped his questioning and said : "Shall we stop the evidence to sprinkle and salt this hearing with speeches?" Roark looked out over his glasses at Hessin who retorted: "I was talking to this man here; not to you. Go ahead with your examina tion." "Gentlemen." said the attorney gen eral who presides, "let us proceed as rapidly as possible." Hessin and Roark watched each other carefully and each lost no opportunity to pay attention and accept chances to jab the otner. The passages between the two men were all the more amusing because they did not manifest signs of anger, but Jabbed each other whenever the occa sion presented itself and went on with the business in hand as though nothing had occurred to mar the tranquility or the humor of the court. There were two conventions held at Junction City. By one McKnight was nominate, Mr. Hessin receiving the honor of the nomination in the other. Of course, each man alleges that the convention which named his opponent was illegal. To prove this each side had a large number of witnesses, a trunk full of affidavits and other evi dence. ... From this mass of evidence submitted by both sides of the opposing forces, the hoard is exDected to arrive at a conclu sion stating which was the regular con vention and which one or tne men is me legal nominee. The statute creating this board pro vides that there is no appeal from the decision of the board. Mr. Hessin is re n,rtH an n vine- that there is a method r-.f onnoal and that the case will go to the supreme court if theboard decides against him. MADDEN-RANDOLPH CONTEST. The board has under advisement the contest between Dennis Madden and Judge W. A. Randolph for the Demo cratic nomination for judge of the dis trict court of Lyon, Chase ana coney counties. Randolph claims to be the Democratic nominee; Madden disputes this claim aud says he is the nominee of the Democrats and also of the Populists. RandolDh lava no claim to tne popu list nomination but is making a hot flsht to retain his identity as the Demo cratic nominee. The Question hinges up on one point, which concerns the elec tion of one delegate to the Democratic convention. When the Democratic convention of Coffey county was in session a resolution was adopted authorizing tne cnairman to name the delegates to tne juaiciai convention which had not been called. Four delegates were named, but when the apportionment was made by the Ju dicial central committee five delegates were given to Coffey county. Thereupon the chairman, acting under authority ot the convention which had adjourned.flll ed the delegation by naming the fifth man. The county committee also named a man for the fifth place on the delegation claiming that the chairman of the con vention had no right to fill the place af ter the convention had adjourned. Affi davits from the man who made the mo tion and from numerous other persons were filed to prove that the convention authorized the chairman to name the delegation; that there, was no limit as to the time either before or after ad journment and that he was in fact em powered, at any time, present or future to name the fifth delegate. This fifth delegate caused all the trou ble too. The delegate named by the chairman of the convention was exclud ed from the judicial convention and thereafter the followers of Rondolph ad journed to another hall and nominated him. The Randolph convention with the contesting delegate appointed by the chairman of the convention in Coffey county had a majority. With the dele gate appointed by the called county com mittee the convention of Democrats which nominated Madden had the ma jority. From these incidents the trou ble arose.
