FAR EASTERN
SITUATION
ACUTE
Chinese in Manchuria Be
come Insolent to the
Russians.
TROOPS ARE STONED
Darker Stage of the Insur
rection Is Looked For
Any Moment.
BY ASSOCIATED I'RESS.
London, Aug. 20.-It is learned that
important negotiations are in progress
between the powers which promise to
result in the early adoption of a new
plan for the settlement of the Mace
donian trouble.
Chinese Are Insolent.
St. Pctersburg, Aug. ao.-The situation
in the far cast is becoming more acute.
Even in Manchurla the Chinese are as
suming an insolent attitude toward the
troops.
At one place stones were thrown at
the commander of the troops.
While all Russians are the object of
insult, a spirit of opposition to the Chi
nese government is also manifested.
Darker Stage Likely.
The rising in Macedonia is regarded
here as bringing on a darker stage.
The insurrection is taking on propor
tions unexpected by the German diplo
matic ag.nts.
The Bulgarian feeling, excited by the
murders and tortures across the border, is
less restrainable by the Bulgarian govern
ment and the movements of the Russian
and British fleets add to the nervousness
on the Ioerse and among traders and
bankers owning Turkish railroad securi
ties or having commercial interests in
Turkey.
Germany Is Passive.
The German government maintains its
passive attitude, with the desire to join
the other powers in any communications
to Turkey or Bulgaria designed to prevent
war and tending to confine the disturb
ance to an insurrection which Turkey
must suppress.
PLAN TO SETTLE TROUBLE
European Powers Ready to Take Hand
in Macedonian Matter.
BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.
Brussels, Aug. 0o.-The Independencia
Beige says it hears that the powers have
arrived at an understanding regarding the
steps to be taken to suppress the revolt
and apply reforms in Macedonia.
According to this unconfirmed report
Russia will act on the sea, occupying the
Dardanelles and the Bosphorus. Italy
will exercise surveillance over Albania.
After peace shall be restored the
powers are to withdraw and restore to
Turkey her full sovereignty.
BY ASSOCIATED PREIN.
London, Aug. so.-There is no doubt
that an agreement of some kind has been
reached, as at the beginning of the negotia
tions the powers started with a general
purpose of co-operation and this harmony
has continued.
A foreign official said:
"It is somewhat premature to say that
a definite agreement on the subject has
already been reached as stated by the
Independencia Belge of Brussels, but
notes are being exchanged in this direc
tion."
In other quarters it was intimated that
the scheme was partially on the lines re
ferred to by the Belgian newspapers.

G00 TEMPLARS
VISIT SMELTER
ANACONDA CONVENTION MOVES
OUT TO WASHOE EN MASSE
IN SPECIAL CARS.
NOW IN EXECUTIVE SESSION
Finaricial Conditions Were Discussed
This Morning, But Report of Com
mittee Was Not Passed On.
SPECIAL TO TlHE INTEkR OL'NTAIr.
Anaconda, Aug. o.-l)clegates to the
convention of the Good Templars of Mon
tana are on a visit to the Washoe smelter
this afternoon. They went out in special
cars.
The convention remained in executive
session all this morning. The report of
the financial committee was discussed, but
not finally accepted.
Chief Templar's Report.
The report of the chief templar as
read yesterday afternoon is as follows:
To the Grand Lodge of Montana, Independent
Order of Good Templars, held in the City
of Anaconda, Deer Lodge County-To the
Members of the Grand Lodge:
Again let us how in obedience to the will of
Ilim, who in his love and mercy, grants us
the privilege of assembling this morning in
this, the greatest smelter city on earth. May
the thrift of this city, seated here like an
emerald, hemmed in on two sides with lofty
mountains richly laden with minerals, another
greeting us with a smelting plant, in every
respect the peer of all time, whtile before us
on the fourth lies a rich valley within easy
reach of an unparalleled market; may such
surroundings, I say, inspire us to perform with
dignity and in a God-fearing manner the duties
presented at this thirty-sixth session of this
grand lodge.
Need Wiser Plans.
May the workers of this grand lodge plan
more wisely than we did at the last session. 1
pledge my co-operation in a zealous and pray.
crful effort to sketch, plan and construct ways
and means which will enable the executive,
together with the co-operation of each subor.
dinate lodge, to reach a final result greatly in
excess of the last ia months.
Though the thirty-fifth grand lodge failen to
adopt a single recommendation of the exrcu
live, that all acknowledged had accomplisned
more than had been accomplished in the same
time before, they, knowing no discouragement
and ever ready to answer duty's call, proceeded
to encourage and enthuse the rank and file of
our order.
"The seetd of relaxation grew rapidly during
the political campaign. Capt. W. C. Dutton
having left the field aglow with enthusiasm,
was greatly retarded with the work on his
return from California, to find discord and a
general stacking up of the interest so ably
supported during the previous year.
Much Due to Him.
hiis energy and skill soon encouraged the
strong and strengthened the weak. Hopes
partly blasted were in part carried out, and for
a while some good work was done at Anaconda
and various points along the Northern Pacific
east of Butte, resulting in the organization of
lodges as follows:
M:Kinley, No. 6, at Twin Bridges, by Capt.
\V. C. Dutton; Silver Bell, No. ts, at Pony, by
Capt. W. C. l)utton; Diamond, No. 21, at dig
Timber, by Capt. W. C. Dutton; Yellowstone,
No. 9o, at Billings, by Capt. W. C. Dutton;
(;arfield, No. so, at Columbus, by Capt. W. C.
D)utton; Big Willow Creek, No. 34, at Big
Willow Belt, by Rev. C. B. Miller; hit. View,
No. 3, at Clhestnut, by Charles S. I'assmore.
Juvenile Templars.
This work has made progress under the
earnest effort of E. O(. Packard, G. S. J. T.,
aided by Capt. W. C. Dutton, and by some
subordinate lodge members, but does not re
ceive the support of the subordinate lodges it
should. Take care of the juveniles and they
will take care of our order.
I. O. G. T. News.
Our official organ continues to be the best
and newsiest Good Templar paper I read. I
think its editor has given it more time, but I
find some lodges do not make good use of it.
The best frttit will decay if not used in season.
You must read the news regularly to appreci
ate it. If it fails to reach you, you are at fault.
You, your financial secretary, and your lodge
fail In their duty if they fail in seeing you get
your paper. It makes an imperfect distribu
tion and results in injury to our lodge. The
paper should be continued, and if not, much
of the enthusiasm of our lodge is doomed.
)During the three years 1 have been grand
chief templar of Montana. I have been asked
many questions, to which I have replied,quoting
as closely as I could the law, and at all titnes
encouraging a spirit of harmony. I have
endeavored to make clear to the lodges that it
was so easy to take up much valuable time in
wrungle while the cause for which we are
assemlled was beilig overlooked. My instruc
lions have invariably been. learn to settle your
,wn difliculties, do it quickly and delay not the
good work fur whticlh our lodge wis inatituteis.
As a result, only two appeals have reached me.
Needs Full Sway.
I recommend that the executive be given
pretty full away in matters of extending the
order and the manner of securing means neces.
sary, with grand lodge boldly recommending
considerable work provided the executive can
secure the means. This field should maintain
the News and a lecturer, and can do so con.
tinuously more easily than periodically.
While I approve a guaranteed amount at the
end of the year in our treasury, I also believe
in originating our own battle cry and to shout
i: with a will. I know of no lecturer who can
promote our field work like that of Capt. W. C.
l)utton. In him 1 find a Christian and orator
capable of economically organising lodges that
last and work in harmony with every other
Christian and temperance worker in our state.
Other temperance work is to be pushed during
the year and our noble order should rally,
fortify, train and work together as a drilled
al my.
Always Onward.
God's Iplan is always onward. lIe never re.
treats or retracts. The day that is gone is gone
forever. The deed you have ilone is history.
Your life work is your report and you will
never rewrite it. Mly record as your grand
chief templar is made. It is open to your
criticism. I have done my best, as poor as it
may seem. 1 beg you treat it with charity. I
know none but friends in the jurisdiction. It
has been a pleasure to work with the executive.
(Our lecturer has been a bosom friend. I re.
olice that I have aided many to break the
shackles that alcohol welds on the human
form, while it prepares to complete its hellish
work. Though I sink out of sight, don't give
tup the work. Good templary lhas come to stay.
It is a public necessity. God cradled It in its
infancy, nursed it durin. the civil war, built
the ark of bulrushes that carried it across the
sea, Let not you or I sing its funeral dirge.
Nol let us shout its march to victory, strew
palm leaves in its pathway, shelter it during
the storm, and with the orphan as our goddess
march the streets to its annointing. Let the
duties we are called here to do be done with
dispatch, without fear or favor, always prefer.
ring one another, enthroning love to the extent
of the prayer of Thy will be done. May our

Seattle, W\'ash., Aug. on.- Interest in to

pending oratorical battle on the subject
of the legislative needs of Alaska.
The subject has bIeen made the special
order of ;usiness for the late afternoon

tForm of Government.
The Im,:,t conteCtetl point in the discus
sin will doubtlcess be that of a proposed
territorial form of govetrniment for the
district.
The Alaska delegation, i8 strong, hehil
,t meeting yesterday afternlloot for the pulr
pose of considering the matter of intro
ducing a resolution favoring the adm.ission
of the district as a territory anid after
sonme brief discutssio andopted a resclu
tion favoring that iitnasure by a vote of
17 to r, Governor ltr.idy alone votitng inll
the ncgative.
Ilowever, lcespite the anxiety of the
Alaska d'legation for the adoption of the
proposed resolution, that resolution will
hdoubtless meet with scne opplosition ill
the commlittee on resolutiollns.
Under the rules of the congress no reso
Ittion can be considered by the congress
as a whole until it has been referred to
and reported on by the resolutions conm
?mittee, andl there appears to lie a pos
sibility that there will be a divided report
on the territorial resolution.
llowever, in view of the fact that there
is a large territorial representation in the
congress, and the majority in the Alaska
delegation for the measure is so large, the
friends of the resolution claim that they
s ill have an easy victory.
The consitlerationt of and adlopltion of
resolutions will take up a large me1asure of
the time of the remaining sessions of the
congress. Several resolutions have been
acted upon by the resolutions committee,
