Japan and China are again having a
little difficulty, but it is probable that
China, in view of the result of the late
war, will yield gracefully to the de
mands of the island kingdom. It
seems that some of the Chinese prov
inces have beea having some anti
Japanese riots, and incidentally de
stroying Japanese property. Japan de
mands that a decree be issued ordering
officials and people to respect foreign
property and life that rioters and of
ficials be punished that Japan be paid
105,000 taels for property damaged, and
that Japan be allowed to establish new
settlements. Japanese papers contain
strong pro-American editorials and
express the hope that the United States
will hold the Philppines.
Ancestral worship, which is a prin

sometimes bears fruit in filial devotion
which it would be hard to find among
the nations who are at present preying

young man eighteen years of age was
executed on the charge of murder, al
though it was known that he was not
guilty A Shanghai paper, in com
menting upon the incident, spoke of
the large amount of sympathy that was
felt for the condemned man, because
it was so well known that the actual
murderer was his father. In order to
save his parent and satisfy the law of
"life for life," the son gave himself
up as soon as he knew that his father
had done the deed, and confessed the
murder. As the Chinese saying has
it, "He sealed his filial piety with his
The great number of suicides lately,
specially among old people, suggests
the need of doing everything possible
to add to the interest of life and make
ft easier for everyone to introduce
cheerfulness into the "daily round and
common task." This can best be done
with the young. School chil
dren should be taught plenty
of bright songs, of a kind that
will come back to them in after life and
dispel gloom. They should be given
an interest in art and music. Espe
cially they should be educated to love
and cultivate flowers. They should be
taken on summer excursions and
shown the wonders of botany. In ev
ery conceivable way the beauty of com
mon things, both in city and country,
should be opened up to the young. If
this were done men and women would
have more to think about than selfish
or family troubles. They would fall
back upon their mental treasures and
upon all-bountiful nature when gloomy
days came upon them. They would
brood less and Would not think of end
ing their existence. If everybody
would devote their lives more to the
pursuits of happiness than they do
there would be fewer suicides.
The committee of the Paris exhibi
tion of 1900 has decided on the con
struction of a railway and also of a
rolling patform, for the conveyance of
visitors round the exhibition. By these
two means of transport it will be pos
sible to take round more than 30,000
persons an hour. The railway will be
similar to that in use in 1889, while the
moving platform will be the reproduc

which was worked with excellent re
sults at Chicago. It will be between
three and four yards in width, fur

New York. Aug. 21.-A dispatch to
the World from Manila city, datea
Aug. 13, via Hongkong, says:
The hardest fighting at the capture
of Manila was done by the Astor bat
tery, which led the advance. Brig. Gen.
McArthur, commanding the brigade,,
complimented the men in the highest
terms right in the midst of the battle
for their valor and success. The As
tor battery led the column, supported
by the Minnesota volunteers and the
Twenty-third regulars. The Utah bat
tery's guns were too heavy to move
through the swamps. The march was
along the Pasay road, on the right of
the River Pasig, where the fleet could
give no assistance. At the junction of
the Cingalo'n road the vanguard came
without warning upon a strong Span
ish intrenchment. Suddenly the ene
my rained a deadly fire upon the
Americans, killing two men of the As
tor batteiy First Sergeant Holmes
and Second Sergeant Creminsand one
Minnesota Man, Private Patterson, at
the same time wounding a score of
others. Sergeant Ciemins, after he
was shot, started to his gun, fired it,
and the next moment fell dead beside
the piece. The Astor battery was
forced to fall back from the murderous,
fire, temporarily leaving two guns, but
the reserves under Col. Ovenshine
came up promptly and, with their sup
port, the Astors charged the enemy
with only revolvers for weapons,
quickly regained their guns and put
both into action again with increased
vigor. The Spaniards were then
speedily put to flight.
The losses in the Astor battery were
two killed and eight wounded. The
losses in the Thirteenth Minnesota
were: Killed, Archie Patterson, bugler,

The Spanish Idss is estimated at not
less than 200, including killed and
wounded, and in the neighborhood of
8,000 captured. Vast stores of mili
tary and naval supplies were seized.
The casualties on the American side
were confined to the land side. Not a
man on the fleet was injured. Through
four lines of intrenchments, extending:
for two miles, the. enemy was driven in
panic to the walled portions of Manila.
There the Spaniards surrendered.
As the Stars and Stripes were raise*
over the official residence of the gor
ernor, Capt. Gen. Jaudemes burst into
tears and his suite hid their faces in
their hands. Almost impregnable
fortifications had been stormed, includ
ing four blockhouses and innumerable
street blockades. All were carried
with the pluck and valor characteristic
of Americans. In Gen. Green's brig
ade the Colorado and California volun
teers and the Eighteenth regulars
drove the Spaniards back in panic.
