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

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.

the state department.

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.

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."

MADE MONEY FLY.
Alrord Spent Stolen Funds In
Boyal Manner.
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,

too, says that Alvord was Invariably ac
companied at the races by a woman.
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
