Turns Affairs Over to a Hoard of Administration. Washington, April 26. The following cablegram has been received at the state department from Mr. Squier, the United States charge at Pekin, dated today: 'The empress dowager has appointed a board of national administration to relieve her of her public functions. They embrace three members of the cabinet now with the empress at Sian Fu and Prince Hing, Viceroy LI and Prince Kung, who are now in Pekin." This news is regarded as of import ance, indicating as it does the relin quishment by the empress dowager of the arbitrary powers she heretofore has exercised. It also is apparent that she has placed herself in a position to avoid direct responsibility to the foreigners for whatever may happen in the future and the board will have to bear the brunt of any complaint. It is felt that the appointment of this board will make it much easier for the foreign ministers to transact business with the Chinese government. The three members of the new cabinet now at Sian Fu include the notorious Jung Lti, who was one of the most active in the outbreak against the foreigners . last summer. One of the other members of this council is 70 years of age and is said to be greatly debilitated. The third member has been lukewarm toward for eign interests. The choice of these three Is looked upon as likely to complicate the good which Li Hung Chang and the others may accomplish. TO END A REVOLUTION. t ' ' y I h- 1 , : .- l v i I k; 1 J r ... j General of Colombian Insurgents Of fers Peace Terms. New Tork. April C6 The Tribune says: Ir. Carlos .Martinez Silva. min ister of foreign affair- of Colombia, has received from Bogota an official ac ceptance of the peace proposals made by General Rafael T'ribe-Uribe, leader of the Colombia insurgents. Heneral t'ribe-Uribe has been in Washington for several days conferring with Dr. Sil va and Don Toraas Herran, secretary of the Colombian legation. He has re turned to New York and he is to send one of his aides at once to Colombia with a manifesto addressed to his fol lowers, urging them to lay down their arms and submit to the government. Before sailing the general's representa tive will receive a passport from the Co lombian legation. The only demands made by TTribe TTribe were that the political prisoners be set at liberty and the war tax abol ished. The prisoners had been freed be fore these terms were received in Bogo ta and the people will be asked for no more contributions to meet the ex penses of the war. The settlement of the revolution, which has been going on for over a year and a half, was negotiated by Dr. Silva and Don Tomas Herran, who came her on a mission connected with the dispo sition of the Panama canal.

Ament Defends Action of Missionaries in China. San Francisco, April 26. Rev. W. S. Ament of the American board of foreign missions of the Congregational church, whose collection of indemnity for dam ages done by boxers in China has caused considerable discussion, takes vigorous exception to the criticisms made by Mark Twain and others as to the alleged misconduct of the missionaries. He says: "We found ourselves at the close of the siege with 500 native Christians upon our hands, no food, no clothing', no mon ey and every Christian house burned. "On the very day of the arrival of the allied forces we were informed that we must leave the British legation, as It was to be used as headquarters for the officers of the British army. I immedi ately thought of a Mongol prince, Hsi Ling, who was an ally of the boxers and whose place was the headquarters of boxers and blacklegs. We found the prince's place entirely empty and the next day we brought up our native Christians and occupied the deserted place. In that house and its neighbor ing houses that we occupied, we put more than 400 peoxle- We took only abandoned property. "The only food in the prince's place was a bit of rice. We decided to sell the clothing and corios found upon the premises and realized $2,500 in gold. They were bought by British and Amer ican officers at a private sale of two weeks duration. "Native Christians brought us furs and sables which they had purc hased at a low price from wealthy Chinese, who feared they might be looted by the mil itary people and who were willing to dispose of them for a little money. These articles were sold at our place to Bi it ish and other officers. I considered that that was a fair, honest speculation, which injured nobody and that benefit ed many people. "There may have been some looted goods taken, but it was without my knowledge. The Russians and Sikh sol diers were selling off truck very cheap, but my people did not do the looting." i Jl QUALITY In Canned Good:; is a leading' feature of the successful grocery story. The buyer must depend up on the lable to a great extent and reliability is a faithful guide. In every line of Groceries that we handle, quality and reliability arc more to us than cost. Giving bet ter goods than can be obtained e'se where for the same money, bring? added trade that more than offsets shaded profits. STOLE FAMILY JEWELS. Thief in Guise of a Workman Secures $6,000 Worth of Diamonds. Utica. N. Y., April 26. Two men In the guise of workmen got away with diamond jewelry estimated to be worth from SG.000 to $10,000 at the home of Henry P. Grouse, in the fashionable residence district. Mr. Grouse is a mem ber of the wholesale clothing firm of Grouse & Brandegee. No one but the servants was at home, when a man rang the bell and said that he had been sent from the electric light company to renedy a defect in the wiring. He was admitted, after some hesitation on the part of the servants. He was in the house an hour, his partner in the mean time being on the street in case the family carriage was seen approaching. The police are active, but have slight clues with which to work. 3-lb. can sliced pleaches for cream 20c 2 cans 3-pound Peaches 25c 2 cans 3-pound Apricots 25c 3- Ibs. choice Cal.

Marcel, assistant cashier of the Bank of Highland, at Highland, Kansas, gave bond in the federal court Thursday for his appearance at Salina at the May term for trial on a charge of using the United States mail for fraud ulent purposes. Marcel was arrested at Highland and brought here by Deputy United States Marshal E. A. Prescott. On July 25. 18a, C. W. Jackson and his mother Eiiza gave their note for JzOO to PiUman Bros., of Atchison county, to snuare up a deal on a threshing machine. The note ran for six months and fell due on January 25, 1900. Pittman Bros. did not care to spend any time making the collection, so they turned it over tr their banker and he, in turn, turned it ever to the National Bank of Commerce of Kansas City, Mo., and that institu tion sent it to the Bank cf Highland for collection. On December 30. 1S39. almost a rncnth before the note was due. the Jacksons paid it. On January 2, follow ing, four days after the note had been paid. Assistant Cashier Louis L. Marcel, it is charged, wrote to Pittman Bros, that the note was practically worthless; that the Jacksons had judgments hang ing over them; but that the bank might swing a deal with the other creditors whereby $150 could be realized on the note.
