to Take Action.
? I_BO_ THE TRIBl-KE Bt~_AT_]
Washington. June 24.-The question of CM
nese exclusion and the threatened boycott of
american goods by China ls the occasion of
some anxie!. to the administration. B is well
appreclated that the spread of the sentiment in
Chlna that the United States is unjust to C hina
men of the better class might undo the splendid
work of Secretary Hay ln .ultivatlng the friend
shlp of the Celestial Empire by stand ng fast
for China's administrative entity and inslsting
on the open door policy in the Orient.
It is not belleved that the policy of excludlng
coolie labor would work serious harm, but it ls
appreciated that drastic methods of enforcing
that law. which may result ln subjecting to
lndignities Chinese merchants of the better
classes and Chinese students. who are particu
Jariy courteous and ceremonious, will neces
sarily be accompanied by perlls to the prestige
of the TJnlted States in its commerclal relations
with a nation which appears to be at the door
of an epoch of great development.
It will be only with great difficulty that the
admirJstration can devise effective methods of
er.forclng the present law -without the modiflca
tion by CongreBS of certain of its provi6ions,
but that the admlnistration is aware of the
danger accompanying too harsh methods of
deailng with the better class of Chinamen ia
obviou*.
It !s further appreciated that the very pur?
pose for which the law was enacted would be I
fiefeated were the sentiment peremitted to take !
root in the Celestial mind that this country was ?
dieposed to be unfalr or inconsiderate ln its
dealL.gs with Chinamen of the better class.
While the protection of American labor from
undue ccrr.petition Is the chief purpose of the
law th- curtallment of the market for Ameri?
can'exports would almost as certainl. result to
the Injury of American workmen, and it is be?
tween the two courses. of undue harshness on
the one hand and undue liberality on the other.
___ the administration must shape its course.

Precautions Taken at La Boca?Many Em

Panama, June 24.?A fatal case of bubonlc
plague is reported to have occurred at La Boca.
three miles from here, yesterday. The dead
man had been working on board the British

taken from the steamer Chili are now being ex

cer of the canal zone, said that, though the clln
lcal and bacteriologlcal aspects of the body did
not Bhow positlvely that the man died from
bubonlc plague. he suspected it was a case of
plague. The house in which the man lived has
been thoroughly dlsinfected, and hls forty com
panlons are well Isolated and are under observa
tio_. Colonel Gorgas says the disease must have
been contracted on board the Chili.
There were no deaths from yellow fever
yesterday.

HALT IX PEACE PLAXS.
Envoys Not Xamed?Fear of Great
Battle in Mavchuria.
Washington. June 24.?Peace negotiations be?
tween Russia and Japan have come to a halt on
account of the lllness of Count Lamsdorff, the
Russian Minister for Foreign Affairs. It is ex
plained, offlcially. that nothing in the form of a
hltch has occurred, but that the negotiations
merely have been suspended temporarily.
Count Casslni. the Russian Ambassador. had
a brlef lnterview with President Roosevelt to
day, but he had no important advices from his
government to communlcate. He cai'ed to pay
his respects to the President prior to the lat
ter's departure next Monday afternoon for the
summer. They discussed informally the peace
Bituation, the President expressing his earnest
hope that another general engagement in Man
churia might be averted by the negotiations for
a permanent peace now pending.
It ls learned that up to this time suggest'.ons
for an armistice have not been received with
absolute favor by either Russia or Japan. Quite
naturally, each government is seeking an ad
vantage over the other in the dinlomatic spar
ring that Is going on, and among those in touch
with the situation it is regarded as unlikely that
deflnite arrangements for an armistice will be
concluded, even if they should be concluded at
all, before the formal meeting of the plenipo
tentiarles of the two powers.
As heretofore noted, there is serious appre?
hension that unless a temporary suspenslon of
hostilities be arranged a great battle may occur,
the result of whlch mlght wreck completely the
pending peace negotiations.
It was expected confldently that an announce
ment of the names of the envoys of the two
powers to the Washington conference could be
made by the end of this week but. as a mat?
ter of fact the negotiations have not advanced
in the least since Tuesday. That both Russia
and Japan have decided upon their representa
tlves at the conference is qulte certain, but each
government, for reasons of its own, decllnes to
make formal announcement of them.
It seems scarcely probable at this moment
that President Rooosevelt will be in position
to authorize a further official statement of the
status of the pending negotiations before he
goes to Oyster Bay for the summer. While both
Russia and Japan have Indicated that they may
be ready to open the conference about August 1,
the beiief in well informed quarters now ls that
the conference of the plenlpotentlarles ls likely
to be delayed, and that they may not get to
gether until the middle or latter part of AugusL

St. Louis Sheriff Refuses to Comply
mmrnrn FoWs Order.
St. Louis, June 24.?Governor Folk'e order to
stop racetrack gambling in Mlssourt. with the
ald of the mllitla, If neeessary, to-day met de
feat at the hands of the Sheriff of St. Louis
County, John Herpel, who says he will not rald
racetrncks or call for troops, and that lf the
Governor sends troops to molest any one the
soldiers will be arrested, possibly shot.
When asked to-nlght why he dld not make a
raid to-day on Delmar track. ln compliance with
Governor Folk'a instructlons, Sheriff Herpel
mado an official statement through State Sen?
ator A. E. L. Gardner, of St. Louis County, who
opposed the repeal of the Breeders law in tho
last leglslature and who is the legal adviser of
Shorlff Herpel. He is also Bald to be the legal
representative of the Delmar Raeing Associa?
tion.
The statement follows:
I am against raids in the practical meaning of
that term, which means a sei/.ure of persons or
property without legal process of law or evi
dence of violatlon of the law. A raid or the
use of the militia means a usurpation of the
judiclal powers of the State, guaranteed by the
Constitution and by military force.
An appeal to bayonets is the llrst threat of a
blgot, flred by fanatical zeal. his personal am
bitlon, and by ideas against the guaranteed 11b
erties of the people.
Sheriff Herpel said:
I am the Sheriff of St. Louis County and have
not requested any assistance from the Governor.
Troops will not be sent into this county legally
until I have made such a request. If troops
come in here thev are liable to get shot. I do
not say that the Sheriff or tho She.rlfTs deputieB
will be responslble for the shooting, but some of
the cltlzens around here might not Ilke the idea
of sending in soldiers.
If the soldiers disturb my peace they ?urely
will be arrested.
Eight arrests were made to-day by two deputy
sherlffs, who went to the booths conducted by
"William Flynn. president of the Central Turf
Association. and by Charles Noel, and arrested
the two men, together with six assistants. The
paraphernalia was conflscated. Later they were
released on bonds of $1,000 each.
Jefferson City, Mo., June 24.?When informed
to-night of the statement of Sheriff Herpel of
St. Louis County, Governor Polk sald that In
addltlon to stopping the alleged vlolations of
the betting law at Delmar track, he would take
steps forthwith for the removal of Sheriff Her?
pel and County Prosecutlng Attorney Johnston
for "their utter disregard of their official oaths."
NEW ARCAXUM RATES.

Oppose New Table.
At a meeting of the Royal Arcanum held last
night in Brooklyn resolutions were adopted peti
tlonlng the Surreme Council of the order to recon
sider the action recently taken in Atlantic City,
when a new table of rates was issued. About three
hundred delegates, representing seventy-two coun
cil8. were at the meeting, which was held in the
Johnston Building, Nevlns-st. and Flatbush-ave.
The delegates showed strong oppcsltlon to the Su?
preme Council's action.
Speeches were made by men prominent In the or?
der. nearly all of them expressing the oplnlon that
it was lmposslble to maintain the order on a pros
Derous basis under the new order of rates. A com?
mittee of nine proposed a letter and set of resolu?
tions addressed to the Supreme Council. These res?
olutions set forth that there was almost unanimous
obiectlon to the new rates, and suggested that they
be suspended until the Supreme Council could hear
an expresslon from all of the orders, after which
the council could be reconvened and final action
taken. The resolutions also suggested that there
be an Increase over the present rates, and that
something like the "optlon A" rates proposed in the
table prepared by the Supreme Council be adopted.

Berlln, June 24.?A fact whlch attracts atten

CHANCE OF WAR REMOTE.
FRENCH OFFICIAL VIEW.
Worst Aspect of Moroccan Case Not
a Ground for Rupture.
Paris, June 24.?For the flrst time since the
Fashoda inctdent the French public is in the
throes of the war fever. Whether it will result
ln anything serious depends on Germany's re
sponse to the French note on Morocco, but with?
out considerlng the exact stotus of the diplo?
matic negotiations a considerable element of the
public and press serlously discusses the possibill
tles of a resort to arms. Army clrcles are par
ticularly active, and at the military clubs the
officers are malnly engaged in making com
parlsona of the forces of France and Germany.
While the financial leaders scout the Idea of
war, the speculative element has been quick to
seize the opportunlty to raid French rentes,
which to-night showed a fall of one franc eight
centimes within the week.
The offlcial view is that the situation, while
delicate, does not present any aspect of danger
or a crisls involving a rupture of relations. This
is the government view and naturally presents
the most favorable side of the controversy, but
the Ambassadors of the leading powers express
impartial opinions fully sustabilng the view of
the governmenL It is pointed out in diplomatic
quarters that the worst aspect of the Moroccan
i question does not present a cause for war.
\ The controversy serves to call attention to the
j complete state of readiness of the French mili?
tary system. The present peace footlng of the
i army is 530,000 men. The lst and 2d Reserves
are made up of tralned men who have com?
pleted the military serviee which the state re
i quires of all citizens. The equipment of the
' reserves ls always kept in readiness at the bar
j racks. Military experts say that the calling of
| the lst Reserves to the colors would probably
I furnlsh a force approximately of a mllllon
| trained men, and thereafter the 2d Reserves
and the territorial mllitia would permit much
further expansion. The system of mobilizatlon
and equipment has undergone great improve?
ment as the result of the lessons of the last
war.
"La LibertG" to-night began the pubiication
of a series of artlcles from the frontler, showing
the excited state of public feeling and the ac?
tivity of the military forces, which are alleged
to be constantly drilling and undergoing inspec?
tion.
The diplomatic situation remains unchanged.
as Germany has not yet presented her answer
to the French note. Officials say the negotia?
tions are taking a normal course, without at
present any indlcation of a marked change It
is definitely known thut the French Ambassa?
dor to Germany was cordlally received by Chan?
cellor von BUlow on Friday. This is consid
ered to be a most reassuring sign of Germany's
conciliatory lntentlons.
Berlln, June 24.?The Foreign Office officials
are buslly studying the French note On Mo?
rocco, Its unusual length causing delay ln an
swering lt. Emperor Wllliam's absence at Klel,
the Foreign Office says, will cause no delay in
the negotiations, as he is daily lnformed on all
points, and his decisions are promptly given.
The fact becomes evldent that Premier Rou?
vier has left open for discussion many points
from which negotiations can continue. The
greatest dlfference now seems to be whether
Germany and France shall seek to reach a sepa
rate agreement before the meeting of the con?
ference. thus ellmlnatlng many matters from
international action. Germany apparently holds
the view that it would be an act of dlscourtesy
to the powers which have already agreed to
attend the conference If she arranged any mat?
ters beforehand witb France.
Official clrcles here continue to follow the af?
fair with keen interest. but without anything
Ilke excltement, much less bellicose lnclinations.
