LORD PUKKAH SCORED.
Horse Owners Generally Resent Un
called For Remarks.
New York, Oct. 19. A dispatch to the
Journal and Advertiser from London,
says:
Lord Durham's ugly attack on Ameri
can jockeys and on sportsmen from over
the sea, unsupported by any proof, has
brought on an international turf storm.
The Daily Telegraph wisely declares
that "it can oniy be presumed that Lord
Durham spoke he was addressing the
Jockey club stewards, of which he is one
with a knowledge of much that has
gone on which has not yet met the pub
lic eye. but which must be known to the
powers that be."
John A. Drake, who has won Jl.000.0o0
in the five months that he has been on
the English turf which is the whole of
tiis experience is thoroughly disgusted
at the insults indirectly heaped upon
him. . , .
"The position is intolerable.' said he,
"to any one who loves fair play. Our
trainer-is and jockeys in England do not
need any word of defense from me.
Thei.- record speaks for itself.
"American jocVeys are in bad favor
with the Jockey club but had they hurt
the sport in England would the Prince
of Wales have just engaged an Ameri
can jockey to ride his horses? Our jock
eys have- won too many races.
""American boys ride to win. They
have broken up the English jockey ring
about which there was such a cry a
while ago. American jockeys are re
sponsible for an honesty tin the English
race courses that was never before
Known."
Lord William Bresford is preparing
a rebuke to Lord Durham and wiil en
gape for next season. Wishard. Air.
Drake's trainer, to succeed Huggins, hia
j.resenl American trainer who wants to
make a visit home and will also engage
the Rein" boys for next season.
The Karl of Lonsdale has cabled to
the Journal and Advertiser from Pen
rith, Wales, respecting Lord Durham's
much discussed speech at the Jockey
club meeting relative to American jock
eys in England. He says:
I regret that I can, with a most un
biased and independent feeling, thor
oughly indorse all that Lord Durham
Baid.
"I hav thought and said openly for
pome time that I considered the turf in
England in a worse state at the present
time than it has ever been in my recol
lection. "I do" not imagine for a minute Lord
Durham meant by 'American jockeys
and their following' that that following
was necessarily America.
"There also have been more accidents
recently than I ever remember and I
most certainly attribute this to the
presence of American jockeys."
OPEN AND SIMPLE
The Czar Says Russia's Chinese
Policy Has Been.
New York, Oct. 19. In a long dispatch
from Yalta, Russia, near which place
the czar is staying, a correspondent of
the Herald quotes a high Russian offi
cial who sees the czar daily and is fuily
conversant with the emperor's views on
the Chinese situation. This official ask
ed that his name be not stated but the
tone of the dispatch leaves little doubt
it was Count LamsdorrT. the newly cre
ated minister of foreign affairs of Rus
sia. The official said of the Russian pol
icy toward China:
"I defy any one to show that Russia
has deviated in any respect from the
policy which has been announced and
which is given quite openly in the Rus
sian press. What Russia undertook to
do she did. Her policy has been open
and perfectly simple from the first.
"So far from having designs upon
Manchuria, Russia's frontier in that
part was not properly protected. We
were so unprepared that we had to sub
mit to being attacked and bombarded.
Does that look like our being prepared
to annex Manchuria?
"Our ministers and our people w-ere in
great danger in Ptkin. It was our duty
ta relieve them. We undertook to do so
and we achieved their rescue.
"But Pekin from that moment had no
further importance because it was no
longer the seat of the Chinese govern
ment. Communication was cut off,
which was very awkward. Tien Tsin
was ten days nearer in regard to com
munication. That was very important
fact and explains why we wanted to be
there and not in Pekin.
"Circumstances have altered some
what now, owing to the duly recognized
plenipotentiaries being in Pekin to treat
with and communication having been
veil nifiht restored. It is or no import

ance to us tqday whether negotiations
are carried on in Pekin or not.
"Just look at our country. Can any
one who knows this country imagine
for a moment that Russia is in want of
additional territory? How can any
thinking person entertain such a view?
Russia is quite content with what -she
has got. What she has she wishes time
to develop.
"Recent German communications have
been much more moderate and have
made the possibility of peaceful negoti
ations much better. Why, what would
our position have been according to the
first ideas? We should have been call
ed upon the place ourselves in the posi
tion of public executioners. How could
we accept that? None of the powers is
at war with China. Why, then, should
there be any talk of taking away terri
tory from her?
"As regards our policy, my august
master has decided upon all questions
which have come before him in this
Chinese question in a perfectly straight
forward manner, his sole object being,
after fully weighing each matter, to ar
rive at a just and upright conclusion.
That is his nature. His minister of for
eign affairs tries his utmost to carry out
those imperial conclusions to the best of
his ability.
"If the other powers, one or any of
them, were to think it right to push
matters and annex Chinese territory,
then Russia would have to come in and
hold her own. That is not tv hat Russia
wishes. Such a policy would only be
forced upon her."

DAD BLOOD,
BAD COMPLEXION.
The skin is the seat of an almost end
less variety of diseases. They are known
by various names, but are all due to the
same cause, acid and other poisons in
the blood that irritate and interfere with
the proper action of the skin.
To have a smooth, soft skin, free from
all eruptions, the blood must be kept pure
and healthy. The many preparations of
arsenic and potash and the large number
of face powders and lotions generally
used in this class of diseases cover up
for a short time, but cannot remove per
manently the ugly blotches and the red,
disfiguring pimples.
Eternal vigiiz.nca is th& pnloo
of a beautiful complexion
when such remedies are relied on.
Mr. H - T. Shobe, 2704 X,ucas A .rniic, St. I,ouis,
Mo., says : " My daughter was arHiclecl for years
with a disfiguring eruption on her face, wljicb
resisted all treatment. She was taken to two
celebrated health springs, but received no bene
fit. Many medicines were prescribed, but with
out result, until we decided to try S. S. S., and by
the time the first battle w as finished tueeruption
began to disappear. A dozen bottles cured her
completely ami left her skin perfectly smooth.
She is now seventeen years old, and not a sign of
the embarrassing disease has ever returned."
S. S. S. is a positive, unfailing cure for
the worst forms of skin troubles. It is
the greatest of all blood purifiers, and the
only one guaranteed purely vegetable.

DISTRUST OF GERMANY.
Belief That She Doesn't Want Peace
In China is Growing-.
New York, Oct. 19. Distrust Of Ger
man's attitude in China has been re
vived as a result of information received
here showing the hostility of the Berlin
government to a policy of conclliatloti
in the settlement of the far eastern ques
tion, says a Washington correspondent
of the Herald. It has been learned that
the recall of Baron Speck Von Sternberg,
the German charge d'affaires, was due
to his efforts to smooth the road look
ing to a prompt, peaceful solution of
the Chinese trouble. Baron Von Stern
berg returned to Berlin on the steamer
Deutschland.
Among the friends of Baron Von
Sternberg in the official circles here deep
surprise was felt when the news of his
removal from Washington was first
noised about. His relations with the ad
ministration were" of the most cordial
character and the officials generally con
ceded that he was doing much to make
a satisfactory solution in China, pos
sible. Exact details as to Baron Von
Sternberg's recall are impossible to ob
tain, as none of the officials of the Ger
man embassy wiil talk about the mat
ter and the state department does not
seem to be fully advised on the sub
ject. It is known, however, that Baron
Von Sternberg, while endeavoring to
carry out the several instructions he had
received, presented proposals to this gov
ernment in a more conciliatory fashion
than the Berlin authorities had contem
plated. Being on the ground Baron Von
Sternberg appreciated that it would be
advisable in the interest of harmonious
relations between both governments for
him to be less positive than his instruc
tions required.
Officials here are very deeply grieved
over Baron Von Sternberg's recall, as
they say he has certainly aided in pre
serving good relations between the two
powers. It is pointed out that if he had
acted in an offensive manner the an
swers made to the German notes would
not have been different from those given.
Undoubtedly Germany was greatly cha
grined by the refusal of the United
States to accede to its proposition to
make the surrender of the Chinese guilty
of outrages precedent to negotiations,
inasmuch as the attitude of this govern
ment made the rejection of the proposal
certain. It was probably this feeling
that had much to do with Baron Von
Sternberg's recall.
Baron Von Sternberg was instru
mental in allaying much of the suspicion
which existed here regarding the pur
poses of Germany in China, but his re
call for the reason understood here in
dicates that the Berlin government
would have preferred developments
which would have delayed an early set
tlement. An official recently recalled that Baron
Von Sternberg was largely responsible
for the solution of the Samoan im
broglio; that his representations were
due to the virtual withdrwal by this
government from any claims to the Car
oline silands' it might have possessed
growing out of the war with Spain, and
senerally that he has worked earnestly
for the- improvement of the good rela
tions between the two countries.

HAWAII DEMOCRATS
Hold Convention and Endorse K. C.
Platform.
.Correspondence of Associated Press
Honolulu, Oct. 11, via San Francisco,
Oct. IS. The Democratic party adopted
a platform at its convention last Monday
night In which the national ticket and
platform were endorsed. The local plat
form declared against the acquisition of
any more sugar producing territory by
the United States. An appropriation for
a pension for ex-Queen Lilioukalajil by
the next legislature was favored. The
payment of just fire claims caused by
the fire In Chinatown during the bu
Donic plague' scare was advocated.
The supreme court affirmed the judg
ment of lower court in the case of Wil
liam N. Marshall, who was sentenced to
serve six months for criminal libel.
Marshall was the editor of a weekly pa
per called The Volcano and attacked
the integrity of the late Chief Justice
Judd. In deciding the appeal Chief Jus
tice Freer and Acting Justice Magin
held that during the transition period
between the formal annexation of the
Hawaiian islands and the date when the
laws adopted by congress for the govern
ment of the territory went into effect the
constitution of the United States did
not apply here, but Jhe former laws of
the republic were in operation.
Registration for the territory closed
Tuesday night, the 9th. The total regi7
tration for the district of Oahu was 5,&yi
Returns have not been received from the
other islands, but it is estimated that
about 3,000 names have been enrolled on
Hawaii, 2.000 on Maui and 1,000 on
Kauai. During the last few days pre
ceding the close of registration there was
a rush to the United States judge to
be naturalized. Close to 3011 foreigners
were declared citizens, but in some in
stances applications were refused on ac
count of inability to read and write.
Pt'ince David Kawanar.akoa has been
nominated for the unexpired term of the
fifty-sixth and the full term of the fifty
seventh congresses by the Democratic
convention.

SHIPMENTS OF GRAIN.
New York Produce Exchange Form
ulates New Rules.
New York, Oct. 19.-JameS Simpson,
chairman of the New York produce ex
change committee appointed to formu
late rules governing the purchase and
sale of grain and feed in carload lots for
future shipment, has forwarded to all
boards of trade and grain exchanges
throughout the country the rules sug
gested by the committee. Members of
the New York grain trade greatly feel
the need of adequate regulations stating
definitely the capacity of a car. It is
claimed that almost invariably when
the market declines the western ship
pers will secure one of the modern large
cars and thus make a heavy carload
shipment at the reduced price: whereas,
if the market advances, they take equal
pains to secure a small car. The rules
suggested by the committee are in part
as follows:
"The term 'immediate shipment' shall
mean that shipment shall be made
within three business days from the
date when shipping directions have been
received by the seller. The term -quick
shipment' shall mean that shipment
shall be made within five business days
from the date when shipping instruc
tions have been received by the seller.
"The term 'prompt shipment' shall
mean that shipment shall be made with
in ten days (exclusive of Sundays) from
the date when shipping directions have
been received by the seller. It shall be
understood where no siecification of
shipment is named in contract, 'prompt
shipment' shall apply.
"In all sales t grain and feeds by
carloads for future delivery a carload of
oats shall be deemed to contain 1.500
bushels; of corn, S00 bushels; of wheat,
8t0 bushels: of rye, 800 bushels; of bar
lev. 1,000 bushels; of mill feeds in sacks.
40.000 pounds; of mill feeds in bulk, 30,
000 pounds."
LOSS $5,000,000.
Official Estimate of Crop and live
Stock Damage In Texas.
"Washington, Oct. 19. The statistician
of the department of agriculture has
completed his Investigation of the agri
cultural situation in those counties in
Texas that were visited by the West
India hurricane of September 9.
The area under cotton in the counties
in which serious damage resulted from
the story was approximately 1.300.000
acres, with a promise on September 1
of a crop of about 040.000 bales. The re
duction of the crop is estimated at about
6S.000 bales, or 10.6 per cent. l)n a basis
of $50 per bale the amount destroyed
would represent a value of $3,4K),0uO.
The area under corn is estimated to
have been about S15.000 acres, with an
indicated production of about 17.500.uOO
bushels. The loss to the crop is esti
mated at about one million bushels, or
about 5.7 per cent., representing a Value
of about $500,000.
The loss of rice is estimated at 73,000
barrels, of four bushels each, represent
ing a value of about $219,000.
Of pecans there is an estimated loss
of 2,500.000 pounds, valued at $100.0'K.
Three thousand trees, valued at $7o,00Q.
are also reported as destroyed.
The loss of farm animals is estimated
at 1,300 horses, 150 mules, 20.000 cattle,
2,800 sheep and 900 swine, representing
a total value of about $490,000.
Exclusive of the damage to farm
buildings, machinery, etc., the total loss
may be estimated at five million dol
lars. It should be stated that all the
counties visited by the storm were in
cluded in the crop report issued October

Arthur Balfour. Mr. Chamberlain will
remain in the colonial office. There is
some idea, of making George Wyndham
chancellor of the exchequer and Mr.
Broderick secretary for Ireland.
Mr. Brodericte and Mr. Wyndham were
rivals for promotion when Lord Curzon
left parliament for India. Mr. Broderick
succeeded Curzon. but probably re
gretted it when the campaign came on
and Mr. Wyndham made a marked ad
vance as under secretary for war. Each
is certain of promotion and both would
like the war office.
