Mmw York Sun Ssteelnl Smrvlem
Paris. Jan. 30. — The situation in China
is viewed unfavorably by the foreign of
fice here. It is thought that the Ameri
can proposal for evacuation is not calcu
lated to improve matters. General evacu
ation would deprive the powers of that
moral strength essential for the support
of their claims.
One of the foreign officials said this
morning:
The aspect of the negotiations between the
powers and the Chinese commissioners is less
promisiug to-day than it has been for mouths.
It is true that the understanding among the
powers still exists, but there is nothing to
prevent each power from making such indi
vidual treaty with Cbtfia as it may deem ad
vantageous to its private commercial inter
ests.
Evacuation on the part cf the United States
government at present would be detrimental
to American comtuercial interests. Kussia,
on the other hand, can well afford to agree to
evacuation. Such action in its case only
means withdrawing its troops to its own ter
ritory, which borders on China. Russia is
thus iv an exceptional position to agree to
China's demand for evacuation, thereby ob
taining favorable concessions for itself in
Manchuria and at the some time keeping its
troops on call to safeguard its interests at
the Chinese capita!.
The United States is not so situated. It 3
withdrawal would be tantamount to abandon
ment of its claims to paiticipate in the ulti
mate settlement of Chinese affairs.
OVTLOOK GLOOMY
Washington Ki-ars the Anjflo-Ger
maii Ml lance.
lfvu> York Sun Special Servioe
Washington, Jan. 30.—While extreme
caution is observed by officials of the
state department in discussing the bear
ing of the close alliance between Ger
many and England since the kaiser's
meeting with Edward VII., there is no
concealing the fear that Chinese affairs
will, suffer a setback.
Count Yon Waldersee's harsh treatment
of natives aud Germany's unyielding atti
tude toward the Chinese ministers are the
cnief obstaclrs in the pending negotia
tions for an agreement at Peking. That
the new sovereign of Great Britain will
give his forces and ready sympathy tc
Emperor William in his thirst for ven
geance Is not doubted here, although Eng
land has acted so far in thorough accord
•with the United States.
Minister Conger has notified the state
department that Count Yon Waldersee is
still occupying the royal palace at Peking
and that there is no prospect of the re
turn of the imperial court to the capital
until the foreign troops vacate the abode
of the emperor and the dowager empress.
It Is understood that representations
will be made by this government through
Minister Conger to induce WalderEee to
seek other headquarters for the allied
army.
PLEADS FOR^HIS RACE
Colored CongreHsman's Address in
the House.
Washington.Jan. 30.—Mr.White of North
Carolina, the only colored member of the
house, made a farewell plea in the house j
yesterday as he said in concluding, "for the |
life, liberty, the tuture happiness and
manhood suffrage for one-eighth of the
population of the United States." He said:
With all the odds against us, we are for
ging our way ahead, slowly, perhaps, but I
surely. You may tie and then taunt us for a '
lack of bravery, but one day we will break
the bonds. You may use our labor for two
and a half centuries and then taunt us for '
our poverty, but we will not always remain !
poor. You may withhold even the knowledge :
of how to read God's word, and learn the way I
from earth to glory, and then taunt us upon I
our ignorance, but there is always plenty of I
room at the top, and we are climbing. After i
enforced debauchery that the many kindred '
horrors incident to slavery, it comes with ill j
grace from the perpetrators of these deeds to I
hold up the shortcomings of some of our race
to ridicule and scorn.
TERM LONG ENOUGH
Bryan Is Oposed to the Cleveland
Proposition.
&*u> Torh Sun Special Sevriat
Lincoln, Jan. 30.—Mr. Bryan's Com
moner, which has now attained the re
spectable circulation of 50,000, has ap
peared again. Perhaps the most inter
esting editorial is on the Cleveland prop
osition to increase the president's term
to six years and limit him to one term.
He cays:
To lengthen the president's term is simply
to enlarge the stake for which great interests
play. The trusts could increase their cam
paign fund 50 per cent if they could secure
the control of an administration for six years
instead of four. A four-year terra is long
enough for a good president and too long for
a bad one.
LIVING ON THE PAST
London Tinies Is Worried About the
Trade Situation.
Xeu- York Sun Speolal Servief
London, Jan. 30.—The Times, in an editorial
dealing with the constant excess,of the value
of British imports over the exports,"especially
in reference to the United States, says it con
sideis the matter of the utmost moment, be
cause it is a question whether the British are
stlil saving and living within their income,
or are beginning to live on the accumulated
savings of former times. It quotes from a
letter of a' financial correrspondent, J. W.
Cross, from which it appears that if the data
is accurate, Great Britain has just been pay
ing her way for the last three years.
TESLA'S NEW FIND
Capacity of an Electrical Conductor
Is Not Constant.
2feu> Torh San Special Serrlea
New York, Jan. 30.—Nikola Tesla announces
another discovery in^electricity. This time it
is a new law, and by reason of it, }tr. Tesla
asserts, a large part of technical literature
will have to bo rewritten.
Ever since anything has been known about
electricity scientific men have taken for
granted that the capacity of an electrical con
ductor is constant. When Tesla was experi
menting in Colorado, he found out that this
capacity Is not constant, but variable. Then
he determined to find out the law governing
tins phenomenon. He did so.

■ Washington,. Jan. -30.Congressman
Lentz of Ohio has reti -.*d, to Washington
and suddenly interest has. become intense
in the dollar dinner his democratic league
is to give at Columbus Feb. 12, the an
niversary of Lincoln's birth. Sixteen
hundred ; guests are to sit at the table,
and speeches will be made by Bryan,
Towne, Pettlgrew, George Fred Williams,
Senator-elect Carmack of Tennessee and
Representative De Armond of Missouri.
Neither Chairman Jones, nor James D.
Richardson, the democratic floor leader,
has thus far been invited.
It is believed here that the banquet is
intended for the sole purpose of solidifying
the democratic, populist and silver repub
lican forces of the entire west, with the
view of controlling the national conven
tion in 1904:
While Towne and Pettigrew have been
loud sbouters in the popocratic camp for
i four years, they have never heretofore
attended a function that was strictly un
der the management of Bryan democrats.
The inference, therefore, is that their
speeches at Columbus will formally pro
claim the demise of the western popoc
racy and the transmigration of its soul
to the democracy.
This, then, will thoroughly westernize
the democracy and strengthen the hold of
the Bryanites on the party organization.
The east will be left entirely out and
even the south will not have so con
spicuous a position in the reorganized
democracy as it has maintained through
the mutations of the party in recent years.
In - addition to the foregoing specula
tions which the Lentz banquet has given
rise to, it is " whispered ' that ' Bryan and
Towne are acting .in entire accord and
that Bryan intends, in case he cannot
secure the nomination for himself in 1904,
to thVow his strength to Towne, or to
some man -whom- he and Towne will se- j
lect. .At any rate. It is assumed that i
Towne is : now second only to Bryan in I
point of leadership of the so-called "new
democracy." " '■ ' ■ .'-
Bryan is- also said, to have indorsed the
Towne speech. in the senate last Monday, |
with regard to which he was consulted in j
advance of its delivery. , He will agree, if ■
necessary, to make the Philippines the \
chief and practically the only issue in i
1902, should events between now and then |
render such a program advisable. And i
if with : that issue the democrats can j
! sweep the fifty-eighth congress, the way i
will be open for the Philippine issue in
1904, with the Bryan and : Towne forces
controlling party action and dictating the
nominations.,..
The foregoing story does not harmonize
with the idea that Towne and Olney are
to be pushed forward as- a compromise j
democratic ticket in 1904; but it should I
be remembered that the Olney-Towne
theory is exploited by the eastern demo
crats, most of whom are for the gold stan
dard, and that the program outlined in
this dispatch is the work of Bryan men
acting alone. Apparently, the contest be
tween these. two factions for the control
of the party in the next campaign is al
ready beginning.
On good authority it is learned that I
1 strong pressure is being brought to bear :
upon a number of democrats of national
reputation, among them Bryan, Towne and
Pettigrew, to be candidates for congress
in their districts in 1902. The pressure
comes from leading men in the democratic
party in the west, who want the off year i
campaign made with anti-imperialism and
the trusts at Ihe fore and who think the
candidacy of these men and of others who,
like them, stand as leaders of democratic
thought, wili strengthen and add dignity I
to the democratic position Should the i
democrats carry the Fifty-eighth congress \
these men would be able on the floor of |
the house to shape and give direction to
party policy and emphasize the dangers •
which it is alleged republican tendencies j
disclose.
The subject is to be carefully consid
ered at the dollar banquet at Columbus,
Ohio, Feb. 12.
Towne has not said he would accept
another congressional nomination, but his
design to return to Duluth and there en
gage actively in law practice, will render
him available should the plan be adopted.
Senators are having a good deal of quiet
fun among themselves over the appear
ance of a well-known journal this month
with portraits of the wives of fifty-four
senators used as a border for a soap ad
vertisement. The names of the ladies
appear under their pictures, and also as
indorsing the virtues of the soap. Mrs.
Hanna's picture occupies the place of
honor in the upper corner of the portrait
gallery. Near her is Mrs. Thurston, while
Mrs. Scott. Mrs. Fairbanks, Mrs. Martin,
Mrs. Bate, Mrs. Hansbrough, Mrs.'Quarles,
Mrs. C. K. Davis and more than two score
of others are placed in what might be
called a human fringe.
"I asked my wife how in the world she
happened to thus appear in a soap ad
vertisement," said a northwestern
senator, "and I had to lis
ten to an outburst of indignation
and anger. She said that a very nice
young gentleman called upon her and said
that he was getting up a handsome volume
in wh;ch the pictures of senators' wives
were to appear. He said that he had al
ready secured fifty photographs, and so
my wife gave him the last picture of her
self which she possessed. She now be
lieves that the nice young gentleman was
the soan man in disgutse."
An attempt was made to get a picture of
Mrs. Knute Nelson and an agent of the
soap house called to see the senator
about it.
. "We have no time for such foolishness,"
said Senator Nelson. "Mrs. Nelson is too
busy with other and more important mat
ters to concern herself about a soap ad
vertisement."
Mrs. Nelson was told that in case she
would indorse the soap with a copy of her
picture, she would be furnished several
boxes of the commodity or presumably
enough to last her for more than a year.

composed of scientists who are versed in
the examination of metals.
Under the law a certain number of coins
of each delivery is sent to the Philadelphia
from each of the branch mints throughout
the country. These coins are preserved at
Philadelphia awaiting examination by the
assay commission. The commission tests
the samples of coins to determine whether
they are of the requisite weight and fine
ness required by law. They also make
what is called a mass melt of various de
liveries of each mint to determine the
same points.
The examination usually lasts about a
week. The members of the commission
draw no salaries, but are paid their actual
traveling and hotel expenses while acting
as members of the board. There are always
plenty of applicants for positions on this
commission, as membership on it carries
a distinction which scientific men are
proud' to have.
Nothing is known at the papal legation
in this city of the rumored elevation of
Archbishop Ireland to a cardinalate. It is
said that the papal delegate is rarely con
sulted when such appointments are to be
made, the pope usually taking the initia
tive and acting upon his own responsi
bility in creating cardinals. Such officers
of the church as are consulted are those
immediately around the pope at the Vat
ican. The elevation of Archbishop Ire
land would not surprise the leading church
dignitaries in Washington, as he has been
regarded as being in high favor with the
Holy Father since his visit to Rome last
summer.
Tbe sudden determination of Senator
Frye to push the subsidy bill to a vote re
gardless of all appropriation bills and other
necessary legislation, is believed by many
to answer definitely in the affirmative the
question, will there be an extra session of
congress? The subsidy bill can be pushed
daily to the exclusion of other business,
and an extra session will have ample time
to pass any appropriation bills that may
fall by the wayside in consequence, for
these bills are for the new fiscal year be
ginning July I. Meanwhile the fact that
an extra session is regarded by the presi
dent as almost imperative will be le
pended upon in some degree to modify the
filibustering program of Pettigrew" and
Butler.

Rumor That Hiil Him Bought the

Weir York Sun Spostal Servico
Ottawa, Jan. 30.—The session of parlia
ment, which will open in Ottawa Feb. 4.
will witness the keenest fight among the
big railroads of this continent ever waged
in Canada. Ottawa has become the
Mecca of lobbyists. Already emissaries
of the Canadian Pacific road are scour
ing the dominion to gain first hearing
with the members and to pledge them
against American invasion. The loyalty
cry is worked to its limit, and organs of
the Canadian Pacific are urging the in
advisabiiity of allowing a foreign corpora
tioc. to tap the rich coal area in the i
Crows Nest pass region of British Colum- j
bia.
The occasion of the contest is the ap
plication to parliament for a charter to
build a railroad to the coal fields of the |
Crows Nest pass region, to some point on
the international boundary, where connec
tion can be made with J. J. Hill's Great
Northern road. Twice before similar ap
plication has been made for a line to the
Kettle river or boundary country, several
hundred miles west of the Crows Nest
coal fields, and though neither land nor
money subsidies were asked, the applica
tions have been defeated by the most un
disguised lobbying.
The lack of railway competition threat
ens to cripple the most valuable coal area
in Canada. The Crows Nest Coal company
is reorganizing with largar capital, 20,
--000 shares of which, it is said, will be
given to Mr. Hill.
What part the other Canadian roads will ]
play in the fight has not yet been shown.
If they hold together the different links
would form a complete transcontinental
system just as soon as the Mann and Mac
kenzie company pushed its Saskatchewan I
line across the Rockies by way of the {
Yellowhead pass, north of the main Ca
nadian Pacific railway. The Grand Trunk,
Intercolonial and New York-Ottawa line
give ample access to the Atlantic sea
board, but it is not known whether the
I different lines will hold together in the
coming contest or stand aside and let the
Canadian Pacific and Mr. Hill fight it out.
It is rumored that Mr. Hill has bought
one of the numerous blanket charters of
British Columbia, the Vancouver & East
ern, a projected road from the Pacific along
the southern boundary of the province into j
the mining region. If this is true, it is j
a master stroke, for once in possession of
this charter, it would be difficult for the i
Canadian parliament to refuse him one
north and south, when he already possesses
one east and west.

Binghamton, X. V., Jan. 30. —There was
a badly frightened party of girls, and a
group of young men deathly sick at a
sleigh ride party to North Harpersville
last night. Half a dozen couples had ar
ranged for a joily time, to be followed
by a supper in the houße of a friend.
The young men, to protect themselves
against the cold, took along a flask ol
brandy, which they hid in the sleigh. On©
of the girls discovered it and told her
companions, who determined to give the
boys a lesson in temperance, and they
liberally dosed the liquor.
The fun was at its height when first
one and then another of the boys lost
interest in the entertainment. The lads
were taken seriously ill, and the host
became badly frightened. The girls also
became terror stricken and confessed. A
physician was called and for the re
mainder of the night the house was a hos
pital, but the youths were declared out of
danger finally and the host drove the
girls home.

West India Soldiers on St. Helena Raid the
Town With Guns and Razors
Tied to Sticks.
They Beat and Cut Men, Women and Chil

the Town.
London, Jan. 30.—The West Indian troops stationed on the Island of St. Helena,
where" General Cronje and a large number of Boers are held prisoners, mutinied Jan.
2, raided the town, terrorized the inhabitants, injured many of them, defied their
officers and were subdued only when faced by the muzzles of rifles.
The censor suppressed the news, but the Associated Press has received the story
by mall.
The trouble began with a row on tke night of Jan. 1 between blue Jackets and a
party of the West Indians. The following night the West Indians broke out of bar
racks and raided the town with clubs and razors tied to sticks. They ran amuck,
cutting and beating women, children and men indiscriminately, and attacked the
Sailors' Rest, tearing out the doors and windows.
All the efforts of the officers to suppress the mutiny were futile. When ordered
to the camp they refused to obey and threatened to dynamite the town. A strong
naval force was landed, the available troops were collected and the streets were
paraded and guarded all night.
At daybreak the troops were drawn up with loaded rifles in front of the place
where the West Indians were barricaded.
The West Indians were ordered to surrender and they were notified that if they
did not do so, they would be fired upon.
The mutineers were finally cowed and taken to the camp, where they will remain
under guard until a troopship arrives to remove them.

Anthony, Kan., Jan. 30.—Twelve women
of the local W. C. T. U., armed with pick
axes, hatchets and hammers, early to-dar
raided f.nd completely demolished four sa
loons, known as "joints." Several of the
women were accompanied by their hus
bands, who took no part in the wrecking
and acted only as a bodyguard.
The first place was in the rear of a
drug store, and the party entered through
a back door. The place contained costly
bar fixtures and quite a stock of liquors.
The fixtures and cash register were de
molished, but most of the liquor was
stored out of sight and escaped destruc

Half a block further on, at the second
place, the locked door was broken with
an ax. While part of the women gave
their attention to the door, others reduced
the plate glass front to powder. Back
of the bar was a heavy plate mirror.
This, as well as everything else in sight,

Mrs. Nation's methods and has passed the

Resolved, That as members of the Cam
bridgeport W. C. T. U.. we deplore exceed
ingly the attitude of the Kansas union at
Enterprise and deprecate the methods adopted
for the suppression of the ealoons in thoa*
sections.
We feel that Mrs. Carrie Nation and other*

badge of our allegiance, which stands for
purity and peace, white as our Christian,
thought and pure as the teachings of Htm
whom we serve.
