IV AY OUT IN CHINA 13 to Reestablish Young Emperor Upon the Throne. Xew York. Oct. 24 The Rev. "V. A. P. Martin of the Imperial ur.ivw-sity.Pekin, who is staying at. the home of his son here, said of the China problem: - "The best remedy of the situation is the re-establishment of the young em peror, who jjoss. ssed liberal an J pro gressive ideas. If he can not be put on the throne one of two things will fol low: Kither native princes will divide the country or foreign powers will cut it tip and rule through native princes. The la.tter I believe would be the better of the two." Rev. Dr. Martin graphically described fcow the foreign legations received the first news of their rescue: "On the evening of August 13, or the evening- before the rescue, the melan choly word went around that only enough food was left to last for two more days. We had 83 mules and ponies when the sieee began. All these had been eaten except six. "The legations eleven in all were Funk in sieep when the clocks of our homes struck the hour of two. It was the morning of Ausrust 14. I myself was asleep in the house of Minister Conner. A few minutes after two o'clock the Fentry who was guarding our legations nurst into our nim and rushing- to the couch of Minister Conger cried: "They're coming you can hear the machine guns.' "The cry rang out in the starlit night and echoed back from the big walls. In another moment came answering cries from each legation, windows were thrown pen and nit-n and women springing f:v.m their IWs hastiiy dressed and rushed out into the Inclosurp. "'When the full music of the machine pruns burst fully upon our ears we be came like children. We laughed and wept alter nateiy. Women fell on each others' necks and men clasped hands. And to hear the roar of those machine guns. "Through the hours of the lireaking day we listened to the shots as they tirew nearer and nearer. At 10 o'clock there was a rattle of hoofs in the street tmtside the gates c-f the legation swur.sr back and in rode a haggard band of t-ikh riders. Further aid came later in the day." "How does pony flesh taste?" was UFkeil. "Not bad." was the reply. "Mule flesh Is better and donkey flesh best of all. The flesh of a donkey is almost as good ts venison." FAILED TO SALUTE. British Cruiser Psyche Disregards American Flag. New Tork. Oct. 24. The reported dis courtesy of Captain F. R. Peliy. com manding the British cruiser Psyche, in failing to salute the American flag and running past quarantine at New York, Is the subject of animated discussion in raval circis at Washington, says a. spe cial to the Tribune. Captain Peliy will undoubtedly have n opportunity to explain his actions to the British admiralty and the belief is expressed that he will suffer unless he had an excellent excuse for his apparent disregard of International proprieties. The regulations of ail navies ate piac ticaily identical on the subject of nation al salutes and they are especially de signed to let no opportunity pass" for manifestations of ordinary politeness In Filtering- New Tork harbor five or six Torts must be passed before the salutiV" battery of the port at Fort Coiumbu i reached. It is barely possible that Cap tain Peliy was uncertain just nhe'e to salute, but nothing, it is said at Wash. Ir.gton, can excuse his failure tr find out after reaching his anchorage and his failure to give an exhibition of gracious ness on leaving the port. TUE TWO SHAMROCKS. Important Trial Races to Be Held In the Solent. New- Tork. Oct. 24 It is already ar rayed that Shamrock II wiil have'srae important trial spina in the Solent v.it.i Fhamrock I. It was in the Solent that last year's challenger for the America's CUP when racing against the Prince of Wales' Britannia displayed her speedy qualities for the first time. Matches be tween the two Shamrocks will, it is ex pected, take place next April. AGAINST BRYAN. Postmaster General Under Cleveland Comes Out For McXinley. Detroit, Oct. 24. Don M. Dickinson, postmaster general under Cleveland, to day issued a signed statement declaring that he could not support Bryan, but that he would cast his vote for Presi dent McKinley and the national ticket. He declares that he is "forced to the conviction that he would be a recreant American, false to his country as well as to his political party, if he should take to the woods," and declares that, "as the house is on fire." he will go to the polls and help save it, although he does not agree with all the methods of housekeeping. He contends that Bryan is preaching the doctrine of hate, appeals to the an archistic classes and "endeavors to set friend against friend, neighbor against neighbor, family against family, section against section and nation against na tion." Mr. Dickinson touches upon the finan cial question, still holding that the Bry an policy would result in depreciating the currency; declaring that the Philip pine question is one for congress to set tie; that the flag must not be hauled down while under fire, but says he is essentially a Democrat still. He con cludes by saying that he takes his place by the side of Abram S. Hewitt, under whom he fought in the Tilden battle of 1S76, waiting a call from men like him to reorganize the Democratic party and to rid the party and country of Bryanism. DESERTS FRANCE. Queen Victoria to Make Winter Visit to Italy. New York. Oct. 24. The queen did not pay her customary visit to the south of France last winter and the shopkeepers of the French Riviera suffered financial ly in consequence says the London cor respondent of the Tribune. They wiil not be pleased therefore, to know that her majesty proposes to desert the French for the Italian Mediterranean shore in the forthcoming season. GUATEMALA RAILWAY. Rush Efforts 'Will Be Made to Com plete the lane. Washington, Oct. 14. The recent suc cessful negotiations for the completion of the Northern railway of Guatemala have had a stimulating effect on the people of that republic, according to a report from Consul General McNally to the state department. The completion of the railway, ha says. RHEUMATISM As experience stands, the most promising way to treat an old settled rheumatism is: to set up the general health. Whatever makes health, in other respects, is good for rheumatism. We don't say it will cure it Sometimes it does; sometimes it don't. Your chance is better with Scott's emulsion of cod-livei oil than with anything else now known. By and by there will be a sure cure; it will make a big noise in the world when it comes We'll send J on a liitlt to try if yaa like. SCOTT JiOWNE, 409 Pcul unset, . York. will effect direct communication between the Atlantic and Pacific and no doubt will attract shippers in the direction of New Orleans and the Gulf. Heretofore while there has been considerable im port trade on the Pacific side, that on the Atlantic side has suffered, transpor tation beins an impossibility owing to the lack of railroad facilities from El Rancho to the city of Guatemala, a dis tance of sixty miles.

THANK OFFERING RAISED. Sum of $200,000 Completed by Woman's Missionary Society. Chicago, Oct. 24. The Woman's Home Missionary society of the Methodist church haa finished raising its "twen tieth century thanks offering" of $200,000. New pledges amounting to over $100,000 were reported last night at the session in the South Park church. The corre sponding secretary, Mrs. Delia Lathrop Williams, of Delaware. Ohio, announced that previously SH'0.000 had been raised, making an aggregate of $200,000, the full apportionment of the society. Preparatory to the pledges Mrs. J. W. Campbell, of New York city, and Mrs. J. R. Woodcock, of Wymore, Neb., ad dressed the convention on the character of the offering and its purpose. Mrs. Bishop Hamilton was chosen chairman of a committee composed of Pacific coast and Honolulu women to take charge of the newly organised work In Hawaii Mrs. E. L. Albright announced that Mrs. James Mather, of Bradford, Mass., had piven $10,000 to Browning home, Camden, S. IX The convention also made the yearly appropriations for the maintenance of missions in various parts of the country as follows: The Bennett home. Clark son. Miss.. $1,100; Harwood home, Albu querque, N. M., J2,0M; Las Vegaa home, Las Vegas, N. M . $1,770; El Paso home, Ki Paso, N. M.. $"i0: Spanish home. Los Anseles. Cal.. SI. 300; Porto Rico home, Porto Rico, $2,500. At the first evening session of the thirty-second annual meeting of the woman's board of missions of the in terior, addresses were delieverd by Misa Virginia Murdnck, who recently re turned from China, and the Rev. John Henry Barrows, president of Oberlin college. Dr. Barrows dwelt upon the fact that the United States is the most potent factor in the civilization of the Orient, and said that it is simply inevitable, that America shoiild extend its commerce to the ends of the earth, ne matter whether the question of the safety of mission aries enters into consideration. He said the chief cause of the recent uprising in China aerainst the fnreigmers waa the selfishness, robbery and greed of the: so called Christian powers. "We may well rejoice." he continued, "that in these later days America means far more than ever to the world of the Orient. When I was in Chinese waters an old side-wheel steamer bearing the American flag was the only memoritl and measure of our national greatness. After our victory over Spain the mighty Oregon and victorious Olympia became the symbols of American power, and today we are told our flag for the first time is respected along a coast line c-f 5.000 miles, upon which daell nearly half the human race."

New York, Oct. 24. Up to 11 o'clock Cornelius L. Alvord, the defaulting teller o the First National bank, had not been arrested, and it was said no news had been received of him. Mrs. Alvord left her home in ML Vernon and came to this city this morning. It is said she does not intend to return to Mt Vernon. It was learned today that when the Alvorda went to Saratoga last summer they took w ith them all their horses and carriages It took two cars to transport the outfit. The horses were blooded an imals and the vehicles were all of the handsomest description. One set of har ness alone is said to have cost $1500, and everything Rbout the stable equipment was on the same scale. Vice President Hine. of the First Na tional bank, in answer to a number of questions put to him in regard to Al vord and the general situation, said that the bank had cleared up the whole mat ter of the defalcation to its own satis faction. This was interpreted to mean that Just how and when Alvord had taken the money had been discovered by the officials. Mr. Hine said ha did not care to talk about the matter. President Baker, who arrived at the bank from Tuxedo early today, would not say anything to inquirers, except to refer them to the vice president. W. G. Snow, an assistant cashier of the bank, who lives in Montclair, N. J., said that he had no authority to tell any of the details of the matter, but continued: "The money which was stolen came out of the profits accruing to the bank, and not out of the capital. If I could explain the methods of the defaulter to you, you would see that they were very simple. The stealing has been going on for five or six years. The bank ex aminers should have discovered it and so should we, but it was one little thing we all overlooked. "We trusted Alvord implicitly and had not the least suspicion of him until last Thursday. On that day while the bank examiner was inspecting the books one of our clerks called attention to a cir cumstance that imadt us suspicious of Alvord. He had discovered this circum stance by the merest chance. It had en tirely escaped the notice of the bank ex aminer, for he said the books" were all right. Nobody knew of this, not even the officers of the bank, at the time. When the bank was closed Alvord went home as usual. Then a few of us who knew about the clerk's discovery, srarted an investigation of the books. We found that by making false entries Alvord had been stealing out of our profits. No body knew of our investigation and Al vord could not have had the least sus picion of it. "He did not return to work next morn ing and has not been seen since. The only explanation for hia flight, to my mind, is a guilty conscience, for I do not believe he could have guessed that we suspected him that afternoon. Even the officers of the bank did not know of the discovery until next day. "Even since last Thursday we have had detectives on his trail and I think that he will landed soon. He is in New York city, I believe, at the present time. He could not conceal himself well any where as he is a very large man of a very striking appearance. "I wish I couid explain his trick to you. It is so simple. We are all great ly chagrined to think he could have fool ed us by it. Years ago we lost a few thousand in the same way and we took special precautions to prevent anything like it in the future. I, among others, stayed at the bank night after r.igiit studying methods and we thought that we could not be fooled again." Considerable information as to the fashion in which Alvord spent the bank's f unds is imparled by race track habitues. A well known bookmaker had this to say of the missing man's actions at Sar atoga: "Alvord was a regular frequenter of the tracks. He was always accompan ied by a woman with blonde hair who wore a thin, filmy veil which, whiie not thick, served to hide her features, so that if I saw her today on Broadway I would not recognize her. "He generally bet on the Knglish sys tem. That is to say, he knew all the bookmakers by sight and at a race he would go to a bookie saying, 'Bet me $?j00 on this horse.' He would go the rounds of the bookies putting a bet witn each one. Then every Monday ail the bookmakers would go to the United States hotel and there he would settle up ia spot cash. Never any checks anil every Monday regularly. Because of this peculiarity the bookmakers used to call him 'the prince.' " Al L'avis. another turfman, made the statement that in Saratoga Alvord was known as the Honorable Mr. Alvord. the younger sou of an Kogliah earl. Xa,vis, E. MONTGOMERY, Prop.. (Successor to J. S.

The bank's officers positively deny that any one in the bank or any of Mi depositors was in collusion with Alvord. He had the implicit coniidence of the of ficers. Alvord, according" to a dispatch to the Times from Syracuse, was born in thiit city and belongs to a family of bank era His father was Cornelius L. Al vord, Sr., brother of the late Thomas V. Alvord, formerly lieutenant governor of the state. Cornelius L. Alvord, Sr., was one of the best known men in central New York, when SO years ago the family moved from Pj racuse to a town between Albany and Hudson. He was treasurtr of the Bank of Salina. Afterward he became treasurer of the Salt springs National bank, succeeding E. B. Judaon, Sr., whose niece he married. C. Al vord, Jr., is a cousin of Mrs. James Ij. Cheney of Byracuee.
