MONEY RAISED TO
Old Orchard Residents Meet and
Take First Steps to Contest Su
preme Court's Ruling.
THEY WILL RESIST TAXATION.
Webster Groves Officials Threat
ened With Prosecution Under
Injunction Issued by Judge
Residents of Old Orchard, who are fight
ing tho annexation of the village to Web
ster Groves, met labt night at Franke's
Hall and took the first steps to contest the
decision of the Supremo Court, as it Is con
strued by the city officials of Webster.
Citizens of Old Orchard claim that the
decision of tho Supremo Court did not cover
the auestion of annexation; that it merely
confirmed tho legality of Webster GroveVs
charter as a. lourth-class city., and that tho
carUffnat-ilurUiciioTi of. tie eburt-dia:no extend to;
th question of the city's right to annex
any territory- About 4 persons were pres
ent and 200 new members were enronea, ana
ti&M was raised to carry on the fight. Tho
Anti-Annexation League of Old Orchard
promises to make much trouble for the city
officials of Webster Groves.
Old Orchard is fighting the annexation
because it deems Webster's taxes too heavy.
An effort Is being mado by City Collector
Farrlngton to collect all taxes assessed
sinco tho fight began In the courts. In IS97,
and, consequently, the amounts in each case
are considerable. Before tho fight began
many residents, who are now on the side
of anti-annexation, were willing to pay
their taxes if the city of Webster Groves
would drop the three years' assessments
when the annexation was in doubt. But by
order of tho Board of Aldermen, City Col
lector Farrlneton was compelled to Inform
delinquents that they would be sued In the
County Court If their taxes were not forth
coming. In a speech last night to the members of
tho league C S. Beber, who is Its attorney,
said that he had notified the officials of
Webster Groves that he would have them
cited for contempt before Judge Booth if
they persisted In filing suits for the collec
tion of the taxes. Reber holds that as tho
question of annexation is not admitted to be
finally settled by tile Supreme Court tlie
injunction that was iebucd against Web
ster Groves last year by Judge Hirzel, pro
hibiting the bringing of suit for unpaid
taxes, i" still In fore.
George It. Iyockwood. who Is the largest
real estate owner In Old Orchard, also mado
on address in the same tenor. While the
primary reason for the fight Is taxes, tho

make It Impossible for sewer Improvements

Old Orchard, and that police protection for

Strength, He Declares Analyzes Re
sult of the Election.
Philadelphia, Pa Nov. 21. President Mc
Kinley to-day paid his first vl'lt to this
city since his election, and met with an
enthusiastic reception. He came as tlie guest
of the Union League, having been invited
to attend tlie "Founders' Day" banquet of
that organization. The President w-as ac
companied by all the members of his Cab
inet, with the exception of Secretary Root,
who is In Cuba-
Tho presidential party arrived here in a
epeclal train over the Pennsylvania, at 3:30
o'elock this afternoon. An Immense throng
was in waiting at the station, and tho ap
pearance of tho President was tho signal
for an enthusiastic outbreak of applause.
Women waved handkerchiefs and silk flags
and men raised their hats a President Mc
Klnley passed. From tho train to his car
riage Mr. McKinlcy carried his silk hat
in his hand and bowed In acknowledgment
of tho ovation extended lilin.
The party was driven to tho residence of
E. T. Stotesbury. and at 6 o'clock went to
the Union league. As 'tlie President stepped
from hl.s carriage and made his way up
the steps of the building ho was- vociferous
ly cheered. Insido tho clubhouse the mem
bers crowded about the chief executive, who
was compelled to submit to much hand
shaking. Tho party then proceeded to the banquet
room, where the covers had been laid for 341
persons. While the dinner was in progress
Vice President elect Koosevelt arrived from
President McKmley spoke as follows:
"Gentlemen of the Union League: An
after-dinner speech is to mo always a dif
ficult performance; an after-election speech,
after a dinner, is a still more dilficult task,
and I shall do little more than make ack
nowledgment to this patriotic association

to the present administration in trying
years through which It has passed, and ex

none the less potential.

"Wo must not withhold generous ack

It is apparent that the President wishes
to supplement the work of the Ministers in
Pckln by direct negotiations with the Pow
ers. It Is not intended to withdraw the
matter at once from the Ministers, but it is
Intended to expedite their action and, fail
ing in this, to seek some other method to
end the unsatisfactory situation. A3 all tho
Powers have assured this Government of
their wish to secure a solution that China
can agree to. there only remain details.
Although Japan gave her adherence to tho
Anglo-German agreement, tho authorities
hero are sure that tho Toklo Government
does not favor the execution of the Princes
and Mandarins, but is rather in sympathy
with the attitude of the United States, Rus
sia and France.
If Japan can be brought Into line, the bal
ance will be so strongly against Great Brit
ain and Germany that they will be forced
to agree to a more moderate plan.
It Is predicted by a diplomat to-dny that
so long as the negotiations remained In the
hands of the Ministers solution would be
Impossible. The State Department under
stands that Russia and France would like
to use some other method of reaching an
asrecment. but whether Great Britain and
Germany will do so Is a question which the
next few days will answer. The United
fitatea have not yet submitted a proposition
for an International conference to settle the
Chinese question, but it Is admitted that It
may be necessary to do so as a last resort.
ENGLISH IIITTKll TOWARD AMERICA.
London, Nov. 21. The bitterness with
which the London Times attacks every
move made by Washington in Chinese mut
ters seems to increase dally, and is all the
more surprising on account of the attitude
of the British Foreign Office. The princi
ples laid down in Secretary Hay's latest
note were given to a. representative of the
Associated Press by a British official before
the reception of Mr. Hay's note us voicing
tho opinion of the British Cabinet. Yet the
Times comes out to'day with a vigorous
protest against the idea of Mr. Hay's prin
ciples being considered.
Referring to the Cincinnati speech of Wu
Ting Fang, the Chinese Minister to the
United States, after saying that bis prom
ising the United States better commercial
chances when peace is restored would, in
some countries, be resented as an injury,
the paper adds:
"But, Wu Ting Fang seems to have
known his audience. All the comment an
Influential American paper makes is that

all others, give their own Interests first

The Times then compares this attitude
with that of LI Hung Chang on his trip
around the world, during which, it is as
serted, he acted on the conviction that
pecuniary self-interest was the sole guiding
principle of the peoples and Governments
"which proved unsatisfactory recipients of

cures, says: "I can heartily recommend
Stuart's Catarrli Tablet, because they con
tain no cocaine nor other dangerous drug
found in so many advertised catarrh cures.
I have known of many eases of long-standing
catarrh of the head and throat com
pletely cured by the dally use of theso tab
lets for several week?. One case In partic
ular, which I could not reach with an In
haler or spray, and where the citarrh
caused dally headaches and a noticeable
loss of hearing, was entirely cured by this
harmless but effective remedy."
Dr. Walnwright -says: "I never hesitate)
to prescribe Stuart's Catarrh Tablets for
catarrhal headaches and catarrhal deaf
ness, becaute I know them to be perfectly
snfo for child or adult and have seen manv
' remarkable cures resulting from their regu
. lar dally use: because they are advertised
I and sold in drug stores is no reason why
! any good physician should not use them.
I because we should seize upon the means of
cure wherever found."

valuable for catarrhal colds in children, be
cause they are pleasant to the taste and
may be used freely to break up severe colds
and croup at the very beginning.
