I I rl f I NEW ALLIANCE FORMED. Germany and EeM Enter Into aa Mrasiit To Maintain liW.nf Cli ness Eiire. OPEN TO THE WORLD Understanding Also Applies to the Chinese Ports. A Hint Thrown Out to Powers With Other Views. London, Oct. 20. Germany and Eng land have formed an alliance to main tain territorial integrity of China and to keep ports open. The terms of this agreement -which was arrived at October 16 between Lord Salisbury and Count von Hatzfeldt, German ambassador to England.are offi cially given out as follows: The German government and her Brit ish majesty's government being desirous to maintain their interests in China and their rights under existing treaties have agreed to observe the following prin ciples regarding a mutual policy in China: "First It is a matter of joint perman ent interest that the ports on the rivers and litteral of China should remain free and open to trade and to every other legitimate form of economic activity for the peoples of all countries without dis tinction; and the two governments agree on their part to uphold the same for all Chinese territory as far as they can, ex ercise Influence. "Secondly Both governments agree that they will not on their part make use of the present complication to ob tain for themselves any territorial ad vantage in Chinese dominion and will direct their policy towards maintaining undiminished, the territorial condition of the Chinese empire. "Thirdly In case of another power making use of the complications in China in order to obtain under any form whatever such territorial advantages, the two contracting parties reserve to themselves the right to come to a pre liminary understanding regarding the eventual step to be taken for the pro tection of their own interests in China. "Fourthly The two governments will communicate this agreement to the other powers interested, especially Austria Hungary, France, Italy, Japan, Russia and the United States and Invite them to accept the principles recorded in it." IT SUITS UNCLE SAM. Washington, Oct. 20. The state de partment here has not yet been advised officially of the terms of the alliance re ported from London to have been reach ed between Germany and England to maintain territorial integrity of China and to keep ports open. While the move gives general satisfaction here the offi cials say that it is probably a misnomer to call it an alliance. What probably has happened, they say, has been a re affirmation of principles already agreed upon not only between England and Germany, but between all of the great powers Interested in China. Again the officials point to the note of Secretary Hay, of July 3, defining the position of the United States, and de claring it to be its polit y among other things to "preserve Chinese territorial and administrative entity, protect all lights guaranteed to friendly powers by treaty and international law and safe guard fur the world the principle of equal and impartial trade with all parts of the Chinese empire." The records show that all the great powers accepted the principle of this guarantee of territorial integrity. Their expressions on the point of com mercial freedom were not quite as ex plicit as in the case of territorial in tegrity and it appears from a study of the British-German agreement above re ferred to that particular care has now been taken to clear up any doubt on this point. Porbably Germany was the first to engage with England on this point, bemnse of her anxiety to preserve for German trade the important commerce she has built up on the Yangtse river, which might fall to England In a di vision. The special reference made in the agreement as to river commerce, bears out this inference. The United States will promptly ad here to the principles contained in this agreement, as it is directly in the line of our aspirations. If Russia can be brought to accept its terms as binding upon herself, there can be no doubt, ac cording to the official view here, that a substantial movement will have been achieved toward a final settlement of the Chinese trouble. BUNGLED THE 3IESSAGE. "Western Union Sued For $6,100 For Mistake of Operator. Suit was filed in the United States cir cuit court this morning against the Western Union Telegraph company for J6.100 damages alleged to be due the plaintiff on account of the failure to properly transmit a message. The suit is entitled D. P. Bailey and Fannie B. Agnew vs. the Western Un- ion Telegraph company. Mr. Bailey is a 1 resident of Dresden, Kan., and Mrs. Ag new is a resident of Denver, Col. Th; plaintiffs claim that on November 20. Air. Bailey sent a dispatch from Dresden to Mrs. S. B. Agnew In Denver which was as follows: "How about that Phillipsburg deal? Must go there to night. Answer." In transmitting the message the agent of the company got the named changed and the message was received in Denver addressed to Mrs. S. R. Bailey. It happened that Mrs. Bailey was in Denver at a hospi tal and the message was delivered to her. Mrs. Agnew did not get it and so did not answer. The plaintiffs allege that they were laboring to make a deal for one-half interest in a store in Phillipsburg and that the failure to deliver the message caused the deal to go by default. The Store which they would have purchased cleared in business $12,000 a year and they now ask the court to allow them damages for one-half that amount plus $100 w hich they expended in making Uie deal. JONES HITS BACK. Democratic Chairman Replies to Charges of Roosevelt. Chicago, Oct. 20. Chairman James K. Jones, of the Democratic national com mittee has issued a statement replying to the references by Governor Roosevelt and others to the American Cotton com pany of which Senator Jones is an offi cer and which it Is charged is a trust. In his statement Senator Jones said: "The American Cotton company with which I am connected is Bo more a trust than any commercial house, any stock farm, any cotton plantation, any other industrial enterprise in the United States. "The company, as I have heretofore explained, operates on a patent right. Of course it seeks a market for its pro ducts and steadily seeks to extend its business. Roosevelt's allegation that I am connected with a trust is as men dacious as the Republican charge that the Democratic party is composed of anarchists, and that Democrats contem plated an assault upon the supreme court of the United States. Roosevelt might just as well denounce me for growing cotton on my land as to de nounce me for being connected with the American Cotton company. if Roosevelt is ready to move for the abolition and prohibition of all patents and copyrights I will make ready to con sider the question. The customers of the American company operating under a patent have as many rights, or ought to have, as the customers of the com pany operating under a copyright that sells 'The Rough Riders' and other works published by Roosevelt. "Because the Democrats oppose trusts and monopolies is no reason why Demo crats should not engage In legitimate business. Because we advocate equal rights and oppose special privileges rough writers like Roosevelt seem to think we ought to abandon industry and business altogether. This alone shows the degrading influence of the trusts now controlling the Republican party. They would spread this spirit of the trust over the intellect and political thought, if they had the power." CALLS FOR PAPA. Murdered Express Messenger Lane's Child in Court. Marysville, O., Oct. 20. During the trial today of Rosslyn Ferrell on the charge of murdering Express Messenger Lane, Mrs. Lane, widow of the dead messenger, was in the court room for the first time as a spectator. She had with her her little 18 months' old boy, who piteously called for "papa." The first witness was Thomas Mullen, a guard, who testified regarding Ter rell's alleged confession. C. D. Kinney, an express messenger identified the package sent by Ferrell from Plain City. The trial will probably continue until the middle of next week. STORMY WEATHER.

The jury in the case of Henry Youtsey, on trial on the charge of being a principal in the Goebel assassination, returned a verdict of guilty this morning and fixed the pen alty at life imprisonment. When the jury was called this morn ing Judge Cantrill asked: "Gentlemen, have you made a ver dict?" The foreman, R. H. McCabe, nodded his head. "Pass up the papers to the clerk," said the judge. The sheriff passed them up, and the clerk read the following: "We, the jury, find the defendant guilty, and fix his punishment at con finement in the penitentiary for life." "Gentlemen, is that your verdict?" asked the judge. "It is," was the reply. The jury -was then discharged, and the trial was at an end. Attorneys for the defense are prepar ing a motion for an arrest, of judgment, which, if sustained, will postpone the sentence of Youtsey till the next term of court in February. It is likely a jury will be empanelled as soon as practica ble to Inquire into Youtsey's sanity. The defense filed their motion for an arrest of judgment and Judge Cantrill set the trial for hearing for February 2. Youtsey will not be sentenced before that time. Youtsey will be taken to the Frankfort Jail tonight for safe keep ing. CURTIS FOR BAKER. Topeka Congressman Springs a Surprise at Leavenworth.

Senator Hanna Begins It With a Speech, at Beatrice. Pawnee, Neb., Oct. . 20. Senator Hanna's speech-making on the last day of his tour of Minnesota, South Da kota and Nebraska began at Beatrice, Neb., today. While' not a scheduled stop, it was found the running schedule would Ipermlt a. brief speech at Beatrice. Senator Hanna, with his overcoat close ly buttoned, mounted a stand near the depot and addressed a large crowd. He was very hoarse from his exertions of yesterday, and the high wind prevailing made outdoor speaking extremely diffi cult. Wymore was the first scheduled stop on today's itinerary, and there Senator Hanna received one of the warmest greetings he has received on the trip. A salute from a cannon and the screaming of half a dozen locomotive whistles greeted the arrival of the train. Sen ator Hanna was escorted to a speaking stand where he talked for fifteen min utes. He said in part: "All through President McKinley's term he has proved himself one of the most wise and just presidents ever known, equal to any emergency, prompt to meet any condition, and he has car ried us through the troublous times of a war. Following it have been internal questions of greater importance than ever have confronted us in the history of the country. I wantyou Nebraskans to tell me that you are going to give us two Republican United States senators." "We will," shouted some one in the audience. "Well, now, I will remember that," said the senator with a laugh; "and if you don't keep your promise, the next time I come out here I'll wear my horns." The audience included a great number cf laboring men and employes of the railway shops, and Senator Hanna re peated his former assertions regarding his associations with his employes and his recognition of organized labor. MAN UP A TREE. Promises Senator Hanna a Surprise Party in Nebraska. Humboldt, Neb., Oct. 20. At Pawnee City today Senators Hanna and Frye were driven for over a mile through a blinding dust storm to the speaking stand erected near the court house. Paw nee City is heavily Republican and the Republican Kaders were given an ova tion, when they were introduced. After Senator Frye had spoken, Mr. Hanna said: "My trip through Dakota and Ne braska has satisfied me of one thing, that is, that all clashes of people have united in the determination that this campaign is their campaign without re gard for the ambitions of any candidate. Having known the meaning of want and hunger under a Democratic administra tion and then having tasted the fruit of prosperity and having found it agree able to your taste, you want to continue that kind of diet. I believe you are go ing to give us a genuine surprise party." "That's what we will. Mark," yelled a man perched in the branches of a maple tree nearby. "Well, that's what the man up a tree says, anyway," continued Mr. Hanna, "and I will stand by what he says." At Table Rock Senator Hanna ad dressed a small crowd from the rei platform of his car. A QUICK JOURNEY. To Canton andReturn to Be Made by the President. Washington, Oct. 20.

According to present plans the party will leave Canton soon after the president has de posited his vote on November 6, and will arrive in Washington early in the morn ing of the 7th. HOW IT WAS DONE. Two Men and Two Women Robbed the Mills Store. The particulars concerning the rob bery of the Mills dry goods store have at last filtered through to the public. The robbery was committed by two men and two women on Saturday night. The women located the silks on Satur day by questioning the clerks and ask ing to be shown the goods. . The four people during the day purchased four telescoies, and Saturday morning a hack was ordered to go to Eighth avenue and Jackson street, and the four with their telescopes entered the hack and w-ere driven to the Rock Island depot, where they took the train for Kansas City. No trace of the goods or robbers has been found in Kansas City. DEADLOCpuLDS. End of Strike Remains Out of Sight. Hazleton, Pa., Oct. 20. President Mitchell, of the United Mine Workers, practically admitted to a representative of the Associated Press that if every operator in the region was to post no tices similar to those that are now be ing tacked up by some of the mine .own ers this action would in itself probably not end the strike. He was asked if all the companies were to post such no tices what his next step would be. At first he hesitated and then replied: "Under the conditions laid down by the Scranton miners' convention there could be no partial resumption of work." When it was suggested that his reply did not answer the question, he said: "Well, all I will say is that if all the companies post notices it would clear up matters considerably. It would remove some of the obstacles that now present themselves." This is the first public statement that Mr. Mitchell has made bearing on a set tlement of the contest since the op erators at Scranton took their decided stand that the reduction of powder price must be considered in figuring out the advance in wages. Notices similar to those already posted by individual operators in this region were issued today by three more com panies. They were J. S. Wer.tz & Co., operating Silver Brook colliery; Dodson & Co., owners of mines at Morea and Beaver Brook, and the Mill Creek Coal company which operates collieries at Buck Mountain and New Boston in Schuylkill county. Tyler and McTurk, who operate a washery at Audenreid, employing about 50 men, have posted a notice given em ployes an increase in wasres of 10 per cent. The only large individual opera tors in this region that have not posted what Is known as the second notice, are Coxe Bros. & Co., G. B. Markle & Co., and the Lehigh and Wilkesbarre Coal company. There is much interest mani fested here as to what steps, if any the Markle firm will take. This firm is the only one in this region which has not consented to give its employes an in crease of any sort. The members of the firm maintain a strict silence. Mr. Mitchell Is said to be contemplat ing a trip to Scranton next week, but for what purpose is not known. Noth ing has been said here about another convention, and there is no probability of a conference of strike leaders here to day. ROBBED BY NEGROES. Charles Hale Relieved of $45 Has Women Arrested. Policeman Miler last night arrested Mary Wade and Lucreta Bartle on the charge of highway robbery. The wo men are both colored and are well known to the police, having been Impli cated in several deals similar to the one last night. Charles Hale, who -lives at Emporia, met Officer Miler on his beat last night about 12 o'clock and told him that the women had taken $45 from him. The officer soon found the women and took them to the station, where they denied all knowledge of the affair, but when they were searched a $10 bill was found in the hair of the Wade woman, and then she confessed that she had helped in the "hold up." She said that a third woman. Anna Ellis, was implicated in the robber', but this morning admitted that she had lied. Mr. Hale appeared at the court this morning and swore out a warrant for the women. They then told that they had throw n the balance of the money in the area way in front of Stoker's store, as they were being taken to the station. All the money was recovered except ing J 5. There are a number of negro women who are engaged in this business in the city, but the police have been unable to stop them because no one who was robbed would appear and make a com plaint. As a consequence the women seem to think they are Immune, and have carried their work along with a high hand. ADLAI C03IES WEST. Mr. Stevenson Will Campaign Michigan Next Week. In Chicago, Oct. 20. Adlai E. Stevenson, vice presidential candidate on the Dem ocratic ticket, will arrive In Chicago to night and depart for a campaigning tour in Michigan Sunday nig-nt.

The increase is 215,680, or 20.8 per cent. LAST HOPE GONE. Oora Paul Will Get No Help In Europe. Germany Sides With Enj Against Boers. land A MATTER OF TRADE. The Kaiser Thinks His Course Will Help Germany In Her Commercial Relations With South Africa. London, Oct. 20. "I believe," said Emperor William recently, "that It Is to Germany's advantage for England to have the Boer republics." The complete accuracy of this important quotation, which gained strength from the fact that it was not said with any idea of repetition, or for the sake of mollifying some British diplomat, is reliably vouched for. The remark was made in the course of a conversation between the emperor and one of the leading Ger mans, whose advice in matters of com mercial policy his majesty greatly re lies upon, and who, by the way, is not a lover of Great Britain and her works. Through a recent visit of this individual to England the Associated Press secured knowledge of what may be fairly de scribed as the emperor's candid opinion of the South African matter. For several days the English and con tinental papers have contained hints, and even assertions, that Russia, France and Germany are contemplating joint, action witn the idea of coercing Great Britain into granting at least a degree of independence to the Boers. Several cor respondents have adduced the most cir cumstantial details to prove the exist ence of this undercurrent of projected diplomacy between the powers men tioned, and w hile the English public has grown inured to intervention rumors, this latest revival has secured no small degree of credence and has even affect ed the markets. Whether Russia and France ever con templated such action is not Known, but the circumstances under which Emperor William spoke effectually and definitely dispose of all possibility of any Euro pean intervention, for It is acknowl edged on all sides that Itussia and France would not act without Germany. There is even further significance in his majesty's pronouncement, for since he made the statement referred to his in terviewer has conferred with the Boer delegates. This occurred only a few days ago, and it can be inferred that Dr. Leyds, the diplomatic agent of the Transvaal, was. informed that It would be hopeless to expect any. aid from Em peror William towards the interven tion campaign planned to synchronize with Mr. Kruger's arrival In Europe. The British foreign office professes ignorance of any secret intentions on the part of continental powers in regard to a settlement of the trouble in South Af rica, and indeed appears genuinely to disbelieve the possibility of any such thing happening. How it would meet such an eventuality, however, can be judged from an expression used by an official who Is regarded as being more in Lord Salisbury's confidence than any other man. and who said to a represen tative of the Associated Press: "What! Interference mooted again? Why we would fight all Europe first." To what extent Great Britain may be indebted to Emperor William for ren dering such a serious alternative un necessary can only be surmised, but it is not doubted here that the anti-British feeling among the people of France daily gains virulence and that it Is not likely to be decreased by the presence of ex Presldent Kruger in Europe. The As sociated Press further learns his majes ty's conviction that it would be to Ger many's advantage to have the British control the Boer republics, sprang ap parently not from any Idea of gaining counter concessions, or from a general policy of friendship but from a distinct idea that Germany's commerce would be Immensely benefited thereby and that the adjacent German territory would be improved, because he implicitly trusts that the German manufacturers and German shipping interests can cut the ground from under their British rivals even In the latter's own territory. The elections are over and parliament is prorogued for a month, so the condi tion of affairs In Ireland is engrossing the attention of the leading Englishmen. The gravity of the Irish situation has been pointed out in these dispatches, but only now is England waking up to a realization of the fact that the next few years promise to be among the most stormy which ever marked the history of Ireland. Mr. Michael Davitt has pre pared and circulated for the signatures of Nationalists an address to former President Kruger expressing admiration and sympathy for the latter referring to England as an "oppressor," to the war as "wicked and dishonest" and saying: "Seldom in history has such a noble stand been made for political liberty by a band of free men against an over whelming horde of mercenaries In the pay of those w ho coveted their land and gold and hated their independence. The names of the mountains and plains of your republic will take a ;lace in history beside Marathon, Sempa n and Bunker Hill as incentives in the strivings for human liberty." Commenting on this, the Dublin In dependent, which represents the Healy section, suggests that the freedom of Dublin be conferred on ex-President Kruger. while the guardians of the North Dublin Union have sent an ad dress to the Queen of Holland thanking her for sheltering Mr. Kruger and re gretting the Boers had come under the heel of a nation "remarkable for its cru elty, covetousness and rapacity." Commenting upon these utterances, even the Liberal Chronicle admits it Is quite impossible for any alliance to ex ist between the Liberal and Nationalist parties. In the meantime the bitternes of the Conservative fight over Rt. Hon. Horace Curzon Plunkett (one of the most important government officials In Ireland, who ran for the south division of Dublin county in the Conservative interest and was defeated by the Na tionalist candidate, owing it is alleged to Mr. Curzon's friendship for a Cath olic lady of Dublin), and the Nationalist sr'it between the followers of Messrs. Healy and O'Brien, continues resulting in unending correspondence, and all signs portend, as the Times and other papers ruefully admit, a period of unex ampled unrest in Ireland. The revival of the "School for Scan dal" at the Haymarket and the pro duction of Captain Marshall's "The Noble Lord" at the Criterion with the Galveston benefit ot Drnry T.an ri Keen the only notable theatrical events of the week, and none of these was r stirring interest from a theatrical point of view. PRICE OF LAND Disenssed by Col. Bryan In a Speech at Corning. Bates, N. Y., Oct. 20.
