Allies in Pekin May Need Reinforce
ments. New York, Aug. 28. 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.

WOMAN'S LONG FIGIL.
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.

FROST IS PLEASED
President of Kansas Exposition
Company Talks.
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

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. The American Na

FRIENDSjSATTLE.
Burton People Fall Out About
State Senator.
Develops That McKnight and
Hessin Are For Burton.
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

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.
The politicians who have been watch
ing the case today express the opinion

Soldier Jumps at Sight of Reptile and
Regains Use of Leg.
Shamrock. Pa., Aug. 28. Solomon Helbert,
an old soldier, who belonged to company
I. Twenty-eighth Pennsylvania regiment,
discovered a blacksnake more than seven
feet long beside his chuir yesterday, and
he is now rejoicing over it. He was
wounded in his left leg while in battle
and because of the dislocation of a KrmtH
bone he has been unable to bend the
limb since. But shocked by the presence
of the reptile, he gave the crippled leg
a sudden twist and the boue slipped back
into its proper position. He now has
free use of the leg.

in boxes and wrappers like DeWitt's.
