It is Explained by the Surgeon Gen eral of tlie Navy. "Washington, Oct. 17. Admiral van P.eypen, surgeon general of the navj, has received a detailed report from Sur geon C. J. Becker, who was on board the Monocacy during the assault on the Taku forts and -who later established a base hospital at Tongku, where the bulk of American, British and Russian wounded from Tien Tsin were operated upon and cared for. The report is a most interesting contribution. giving the first statement of the wounds made by Chinese shot and shell, the remarkable Ptoicism shown by the wounded and the care which the American surgeons were able to extend to British, Russian, Ger man, Japanese and Chinese sufferers. The British officers were so grateful that Admiral Bruce, the British com mander in chief, accompanied by his en tire staff, called at the American hospi tal to express thanks and later Admiral Peymour made similar rails. Surgeon Ijecker first gives a graphic description of the storming of the Taku forts and explains why the Monocacy did not reply when she was struck by a Chinese shell. It appears that she was crowded with refugees, many of them women and hildrpn. so that her entering upon the tight would have Jeopardized scores of women and children. The wounded bfcan coming in about S ''clock Surgeon Decker says. Only a few- operations were performed on the Monocacy, owing to limited facilities. But tents were set upon shore and very soon IS Japanese, l3 Russians and IS Chinese were operated upon. Dr. Decker says the stoicism of the wounded was remarkable. In one case, that of a Cos-fac-k. whose hand was shockingly muti lated there were amputations of the fourth and fifth meda-earpel bones and middle linger. The Cossack then asked for something to eat and after bein f-d returned to duty. By 2 o'clock the Japanese surgeons were at work and took all their wounded. The Russian surgeons also began work and the Chi nese were carried away by their com rades, although one who was suffering greatly from shock was kept some days at the American hospital. Surgeon Decker then tells of the pre Iarations for the expected attack on Tien Tsin. Many wounded were lookt-d for, so that he secured Admiral Remey's approval for opening a base hospital at Tongku, where the wounded from the front could be readily brought. In the absence of a regular hospital equipment, the Yorktown. Newark and Monocacy each contributed spring beds, mattresses, cots, as weil as medical sup plies. The first of the wounded from Tien Tsin came in at 11 a. m., on the 21st of June, including American marines and some Chinese. For a month the hospital was busiiy engaged, 417 cases being recorded. During this time the Knglish surgeon in chief was taken with scarlet fewr. and the American sur geons took charge of the English hos pital, containing 24 wounded. It was af tr this s?rvice that Admirals Bruce and Seymour with their staffs eaiiid and ex pressed their thanks to the Americans. As the American surgeons had the only operating table, it was resorted to by the Herman. Russian and English sur geons. Chinese mines had mangled many of the patients. Ninety per cent, of the Chinese were armed with Man licher rifles, others with Mausers and jingles, the latter a two-man gun send ing a soft bullet making an ugly wound. Surgeon Decker describes each case, showing the peculiarity of wounds mads by Chinese weapons, many of them novel to military surgery. One of these cases of extreme rarity was that of a marine, whose picture was given, showing the gaping wound torn by a Chinese bullet. Dr. Decker de scribes the wound a follows: "A copper-nickle jacket from a Man lieher bullet Decame detached in "night and the base end flattened. It trav eled with sufficient veiocity to enter the thigh, pass through the muscles and come out just exterior to the left tuber osity of the iscium. The wound of en trance was live and one-half inches long rnd of exit nearly four inches. The lea 1 part cf the bullet made a wound par allel and immediately beneath the larg wound. Both wounds healed rapidly in spite of being Infected. This wound is FROM PURE! HEALTHFUL!! ill! 1 1 A AND CHOCOLATE SOLD AT OUR STORES am 9 0 ROGERS EVERYWHERE, TO PLEASE YOU.

Surgeon Decker says the remainder of the cases treated were mostly plain bul let wounds, or small shell wounds. All of them healed rapidly and most of the men were sent back to duty. IRELAND FOREVER. Irish Party Best Organized Since Days of ParnelL New York, Oct. 17. The Irish Na tionalists have returned to parliament with undiminished sti'ength, says the Tribune's London correspondent. The Healyites were defeated in the final faction fight in Mid-Tipperary as they have been throughout the canvass. Mr. Healy, after challenging Mr. O'Brien to a trial of strength, has been left alone. The I'nited Irish league has triumphed all along the line with Mr. O'Brien as the chief organizer and paymaster. The National party now consists of the United Irish league w ith Redmond as its leader and O'Brien as the master ma chinist. Mr. Healy is only a free lance on the Irish side. The Irish party is now more compactly organized than it has been since Parnell held in the hollow of his hand. Neither the queen's visit to Dublin nor the glamor of a "khaki cam paign" has served to divert the sym pathies, of the Irish people from thei? own political cause. Faction feuds have only forced them together in a closer and firmer organization. The Unionist majority in the new house of commons will be 132. Before the dissolution it was 128 and after the gen eral election of 1895 it was 152. Never be fore in the history of England has the government been returned to- power for a second term with such a. preponder ance of voting strength and not since the passing of the first reform bill in JS3.2 until the present occasion has the Conservative party been so successful at the polls after appealing for a verdict of the country. CREEPING NEARER HOXE. Telegraph Line Will Complete Long Stretch by Christmas. Seattle, Wash., Oct. 17. Advices from Dawson state that steamers just Sn from St. Michael bring word that the United States telegraph system in the Yukon vr' ! be completed from Nome to Xanana by Christmas. The line from Dawson north ( ward to Easle on the American side, will I be concluded a month hence. Daws'on and the outside world will be connected inside of two months. So by Christmas the stretch between Eagle and Tanana atone will remain to be built to connect Nome with the world at large. That stretch is miles. The United States grovernment will dis patch mail from Dawson to Tanana every week this winter. This will bring- Nome materially nearer the outside world than it was last winter. The telesxjiph constructors of the United States line are scattered along- the Yukon fr-rm Eagle to Uualto, at the point of beginning- of the overland cut-off to Nome in numerous crews. One or more crews were seen daily by steamers coming up the river. KEEPS THEM GUESSING. Some People Consider Our Chinese Policy Vacillating. Yokohama, Oct. 5, via Victoria, B. C. Oct. 17. The bankruptcy of one of the leading American firma in Yokohama, that of Middleton &. Smith, is attracting much attention, atthough it had been known in private circles to have been pending for some time. The debits of the firm aggregate some 230.000 yen, mainly to the principal banks of the city. Business generally is in a precarious condition on account of the troubles in China. Fully two million yen worth of imported gixxls have recently accumu lated in the customs warehouses in Yokohama and the authorities are great ly perplexed to know how to deal with them while the go-downs of the foreign firms are filled to their utmost capacity. The government has decided to have the whole of the Fifth division in North China during the winter, it having been noticed that other powers, not even Rus- i . ia excepted, are fully increasing their iorces. it is also remarked that there is an increasing tendency toward indepen dency of action by the different allied contingents. A British squadron is guarding Chin Wang bay. Russian troops are marchlne on Chan Hai Kwan, j and the Germans making their base of operations m t-naii Tung. The Japanese are in force in Pekin. while, of the move ments of the Americans little is known, the prevalent rumor being that they have nearly all been ordered to Manila. The whole American policy is causing great perplexity here. The American residents finding It difficult to answer the growing foreign eriticisima as to causes of its seeming vacillation. At a meeting of Japanese-American associa tion in Tokio last week a speech by T'nited States Minister Colonel Buck, had a very excellent effect in allaying these. Gas Men Meet Denver, Oct 17.

Hearst of New YorTt, ac cording to an exclusive private report from the inside, is said practically to have cftt loose from the National As sociation of Democratic Clubs.

Accordingly, the story goes, all the employes have been notified that their services are re quired no longer, as the association has decided to "shut down for the present."

Details of Sir Thomas Lipton's Cup Challenge Made Public. New York, Oct. 17. The challenge of Sir Thomas Lipton for the America's cup will be made public at the special meeting of the New York Yacht club tonight. It calls for a race in August. The three previous international races have not been sailed until late in Sep tember or October and the defenders were not launched until June. E. A. Willard, who sailed the Vigilant when that yacht was used as a trial boat against the Defender, said: "We have got the hardest Job ahead of us we have ever had and we may as well prepare for it. Sir Thomas Lipton is better prepared to lift that cup than he was last year. He has the Shamrock as a trial boat and we don't know how good that yacht is. If her spars had stood she would not have been beaten by the Columbia so badly as she was. "William Jameson, who is to look af ter the Shamrock II is the best amateur on the other side, and many think him the best in the world for big boats, so that the challenger will be well man aged. "You can rest assured that if he has ajsreed to sail on the Shamrock he has a good chance to win and he w ill do every thing to make his chance good. "With him on board there will be no weak spars and many other things that were done on the Shamrock last year will not be repeated. I think that the two types of boats have been drawn so near ly together that the race will depend on management." S. Nicholas Kane of the New York Yacht club, said at the meeting last night a committee would be chosen who will have charge of the series of races called for by Sir Thomas. Mr. Kane did not think much more will be done than this. It is said that a number of yachts men of prominence, who at this season generally have pretty shrewd ideas as to who will be in the defending syndicate, seem to be wholly at sea this year, if Mr. Duryea has arranged a syndicate that intends to build, he has certainly kept his own counsel carefully as it is certain that a number of his yachting friends are wholly ignorant as to his plans. GOLD SEIZED IN CHINA. Haa Been Deposited in the XT. 8. Treasury. New York, Oct. 17.
