MM WILL LEAVE CHINA Preparation For With drawal of Troops GERMANY HOLDS OUT But It Is Believed the United Action of the Other Powers Will Force a Change In Her Plans England Pursuing a Policy of Inactivity. Conger Wants to See Li Hung Chang. Washington, Spt. S. Orders have lnon cabled to General Chaffee to pre pare his forces fir withdrawal from Ptkin. Flirt h r than that, the war de partment has taken st ps to have ' at Taku a. sufficient number of United States transports to remove these troops to the Philippine? as soon us they reacfh the port. These orders ars preparatory and don't necessarily in dicate that our government has de cided finally upon an immediate with drawal from China. It is simply plac ing itself in a position to carry out the pledge conveyed in the reply to the Russian note in this language: "The risult of thew consideration? is that, unless there Is such general expression by the powers in favor of continued oc cupation as to modify the views ex pressed by the government of Russia, and l"ad to a general agreement for continued occupation, we shall give In structions to the American forces in China to withdraw our troops from Pekin after due conference with ether commanders as to time and manner of withdrawal." lTp to the present moment our gov ernment has not change ! its polit y in this matter of withdrawing troop?. It has given the subject much consid eration (since the original note was written, but at all times there has been k pt steadily in mind the propriety of removing the American tro-ps from China as .soon as this could be done consistently. It i? iniimat d that the prospect for securing these objects throug'h complete harmonious action by the powers is brightening every day. It is felt that this Is a time for compromise propositions, as between Itu-fl.in and German de-signs i,n China, and such propositi ms now form the substance of nearly all the diplomatic exchanges which are in daily progress. The continuance of tiuiet in Pekin tending to reassure the Chinese offi cials, is believed to be rapidly ha- -i ning negotiations for a final settle ment. TheTe 1? the best reason to be lieve .that were the Chinese govern ment once assured of the personal safety of its numbers, were It relieved of the fear of the dismemberment of China and the nmiaoe of a large for eign force in the capital, the imperial court, including the emperor and em press dowagi r, would .lose no time in returning to Pekin and opening .nego tiations for a settlement. Hence the suggestion has been thrown out that the allied force? in Ptkin be reduced to a number sufficient to in sure the immediate safety of the le gations, while t he remaining fore's retire beyond the wall if the city, pei hars to Tie'i Tsin, and. if the progrt ss of negotiations seems to warrant it, perhaps be withdrawn altogether from China soil. There are only two i bstacl-es to 'he execution of this plan. One is the difficulty of framing sail able guarantees for a ( ontinua ruv to a .satisfactory conclusion of the nego tiations for a. final settlement. The other is the uncompromising attitude of one of the powers. It is now be lieved that the ditlieulty as to the guarantc s can be satisfactorily yl justcil. These obstacles msy be over come by the threaten' d isolation of the refractory power, for it is believed that no one powe'r would care to pursu the war upon China when the other power hael deliberately expressed their judg ment that further hostilities were un warranted!. SITUATION AT BERLIN Comment On Germany's Detailed Re ply to Russia. Merlin, Sept. X. Numerous cable grams are arriving seriatim, putting to Germany compromise propositions in answer to the Russo-American prop'i sltion. A e-orresponde'iit of the As sociated Press learns aut hoj-itat ively that Germany in replying to the advice to withdraw her troops from Pekin has sent Russia detailed reasons why this seems inopportune and calculated to prolong instead of shortening the wear. The situation in China sti'.l continue.? dull' ult in a diplomatic S'-nse rather than from a military standpoint. The question of doubtful credentials in the j case of Li 1 lung Chang and ot her would be negotiators continues to play an all important role. It is underst 1 that Dr. Mum'nv Schw artzenstein. the G; r man minister, reporteel from Shanghai to the foredgn olliee here that he does not believe Li Hung Chang is properly i authorized, judging from repeated in-I formation 'which the minister has re ceived on the subject. A foreign of ficial answering questions of the rep resentative of th" Associated Press this afternoon said: "There- are no signs that Russia mi ans to repudiate her proposition. Hut it is already clear that the intente j of the powers will not be affected there by. Germany gave Russia a formal answer to her proposition but 1 am un able to i.tate whether Ihi aiiL-w el- amounts ti a rejection. I cannot give an expression on the subject. The foreign office knows that the most re eent ami very contradictory news cabled here from Washington is most unpleasant to the United States govern ment. A member of the I'nited States em bassy here tol l the e u respondent of th3 Associated Press that "all the powers, with the exception of Germany, are anxious to make peace with China and that they will practically recognize Li Huns: Chang as the Chinese representative." ENGLAND'S I N ACTIVITY. London. Sept. S. Pending Lord Salis bury's return r.ext week Great Britain is apparently pursuing a policy of in activity which possibly will hereafter appear to ha been masterly, even though it perhaps, in reality, is only another instance of llabby, weak-kneed irresolution so often attributed to the cabinet in recent years. P.y the time Lord Salisbury arrives the situation will probably have brightened, reports will have been received from Pekin ministers and views will have been communicated to the powers. CONGER'S REQUEST. Tien Tsin. Aug. ::., via Shanghai. Sept. i. i nueii maies -wiiiisier on-j ger is said to insist that EaVl Li Hung, Chang shall be allowed to proceed 1 Pekin for conference. A TRIPLE ALLIANCE. St. Petersburg, Sept. S. It is be lieved in well informed circles that the alliance of the United States and France' to Russia's proposal to with draw the troops of the powers from Pekin may now be relied upon. Japan's acceptance is also expected. .Shanghai, Sept. S. Chin Sin. the j Manehu president of the ministry "f finance, it is reported, has suicided.

Indianapolis, Sept. S. The national board of united mine workers is in si e ret session today.

S Father Malloy held a four-hour conference with Superin tendent Richards of the Lehigh and Wilkesbarre Coal company this morn ing urging a conference with the united mine workers. Richards refused. The officials of this company frequcn-.ly confeired with union committees dur ing the strike three years ago and the present refusal indicates a determina tion to oppose the union to the bitter end.

NEW WARSHIP LAUNCHED The Monitor Wyoming a Formidable Fighting Machine. San Francisco, Sept. S. Thousands of spectatois saw the launching of the monitor Wyoming this morning. Long before the hour appointed for the launching the visitors crowded the yards of the Union Iron works, the ad joining house-tops and the hills. The launching party, which included prom inent visitors from Wyoming and this state, was given a place upon a large Ida t form built about the prow of the vessel. The cei eiiion i'-s attending the christening were brief but interesting.

SOME WINNING WORK A Strong Repiifilican Ticket A Maricopa Convention Distinguished I ay me Dmooui tuu .easy manner With Which Business Was Dis posed of. Tin re was some style about the i- -pe'blican county convention yesterday. There is always style about republican conventions, county, state and national, even distinguishing t!m from demo cratic gatherings of the same kind. Republicans as people, who bathe of ten, have as much dirty linen to wash as other f- Iks, but they seldom wash it in public, lie publicans are. perhaps, as prone to quarrel as democrats, but they quart 1 never from the house! tops or near open windows or in a tone loud enough to startle and interest th. ir neighbors. I; may be staled that the convention of yesterday had no quarrel to decide. There were some differ, net s of opinion about the fitness of certain men for olliee, not for nomi nation, but as has be n advisedly said, for olliee. These differences, however, were disposed of by the majority and finally settled. There were no forced r exuberant sp ei h.s in the convention. While the credentials committee was unexpected ly long in constructing a report, th"re was an interlude of oratory. The meeting was addressed by Col. Jerry Mil lay in a stirring speech. Ced. S. M. MeCowan responding to an uproarious di mnnd delighted the audience for fif teen minutes. The surprise of the day was inflicted by William P. Crump, a y- ung member of the colored McKinley am! Roosevelt club. Mr. Crump was in good voice and good word. Ills ad drers was a magnili-cnt effort, par ticularly the peroration in eulogy of Pr si lent McKinley. It was thought by many that it was a "committee" spreeh, something he had s.vved from the campaign . f four years ago. But lat' r in the day a situation was sprung on Mr. Crump and he rose to it in an address which ewen surpassed hU or iginal address. Mr. Crump ther. by satisfied the audience that he was not only a gr id impromptu talk-r. hut much "quicker tender th line" than the average i. legate, either republican or democrat. This time the stage was decorated. The floor was obscurer! by evergr . r.s. pepper boughs and palms. Above them insp the portraits f Lincoln. MoT" toy a.,d Roes., vi It, and in the background two Ameri'-an flags were gracefully draped. Speaking of these decorations In the course of the convention and having in mind the absenee of the na tional col "i-s at the late democratic convention. Chaplain Sc it sail re publicans never forget to put up the A met lean flag and never pull It dow n. HOLDERS OF SEATS.

After a movement of thanss to Attorney C. M. Frazicr for the stage decorations and observations by Chaplain Scott upon the difference between democrat ic and republican appreciation of tlie Am. rican flag. J. A. Marshall was elected temporary chairman and Ge rgo Kiikland temporary secretary. The fol lowing committee en credentials was appointid: W. C. Foster, Thomas J. Prescot:, J. S. Gowett and Elmer War ren. A recess of thirty minutes was taken in which iti was cxpooted that tin committee would make its report. Af ter the lapse of three-quart' rs of an houi the crmmittee not having re turned, the c'nvenlion was called to order and lis:t- ned to speeches by Col. Jerry Millay. Col. S. M. MeCowan and William P. Crump. In addition the committee recommended- that representation be given Gol.lfiel.f and Verde precincts, not In cluded in the call; k provided for an increase cf representation! in certain precincts and directed the attentlo.i of th-- convention to the case of Charles P terson, an elected delegate t ) this convention, who had also been a mem ber of the late democratic convention. Mr. Peter.-"in was eliminated and the report with its reeommenda.tlons was adopted. Ci. rtnin proxies not residing witlvn the pivcine:.-. of th ir prim "pals were also admitted.

The platform commit tecs' report was read by General R. Allyn Lewis. Tt recounted the proud per formance of the national administra tion at home a '.v.! its glorious achieve ments on land and sea. The terri torial administration was unequivo cally endorsed for its wise and eco nomic handling of affairs. The Phila delphia platform was described a having m t the views of the republi cans of Maricopa county. The repeal of the present poll tax law was de manded. The construction and control of the Nicaragua canal by the I'nited States was. demanded. Then the reso lutions entered upon an laiborate dis cussion of the question of imperialism, which was described as Impossible tin der the safeguards afforded by the constitution. The title of .the t'nited Slates to Jill its in-ular popsevsions, the r. port said, had been recognized by all the civilized world except the dem ocratic party of the I'nited Sta.tes. The course of that party under the di r ction of Mr. Bryan was described as unpatriotic and un-American. A Ql'ICSTlON OF COLOR. The committee appointed to sele'-t delegates to the territorial convention r. ported the following names: Jerry Millay. S. M. MeCowan, Charles 1 1. Akers, George- E. Sanders, Frank H. Parker, o. H.

W. B. Johnson. J. C. Adams, William DufTield. II. R. Tritle. The submission of the report was productive of an unexpected contest. William Crump ef the colored McKin ley and Roosrvi It club of the First ward arose and described the relation between the colore! man and the re publican party sine-e the war of the rebellion. He tben spoke of hv per formance? of the colored man in Ari zona and in Maricopa county and in Phoenix. His argument was logical and his diction was excellent. He as sumed that the nominating commit tee had forgijtten something: that at least two colored men shoulel have been put upon the territorial delega tion, Robert Hudson, who belongs to an other colored organization, spoke in elefense of the report, but in con demnation 'f the committee. He said that the nominating committee was made up eif mm who hael disrupted the party before. Let them elo it again. Col. Me-Cownn, sieakmg to Mr. Crump, said that hp recognizee! the jus tice ef his complaint. H? realized the service ef the (Adored voters and would beg to ri linquish his place apon the territorial delega'.i n in favor of Mr. Crump. Aetcrney C. M. Frazier. re counting the services of the colored pt ople of Phoenix, moved that Mr. Mc C iwan's suggestion be acted upon. Harry R. Tritle addressed the conven tion, offering what the colaved people throughout the nation have been com plaining about a promise to do some thing for them some time if they were patient. This manner of expression arouseel the he of Mr. Hudson, who was finally sat upon and Mr. Frazier again spoke in favor of the colored voters who were older republican voters in Maricopa county than Mr. Tritle. Mr. Crump, who was as smooth a man as appeared in the convention, finally said, entirely disregarding Mr. Tritle'? observations, that he did not want anything thrown at him like a bone to a dog. He would not accept Col. Me'Cowan's place and withdrawing his objection, moved that the report of the committee of nine be adoptee!. MAKING OF THE TICKET. The nominations, running far into the night and productive of at least two great surprises, were begun. W. A. Watts was nominated for the council by General R. Allyn Lewis. Chaplain Winfield Scott put Jerry Millay in nomination, and J. C. Adams nameU Thomas Armstrong, Jr. The first ballot result d: Watts. 29: Millay. 71: Armstrong. f2. On the second bal lot Millay was nominatetl by a vote of SI against 75 f ir Armstrong. In making up the ti'iet for the as sembly, Mr. Armstrong was again nom inated. It should be said in justice to him that all these convention proceed ings had occurred without his knowl edge and consent. It was mow. d that his nomination for assemblyman be made by acclamation. A similar ac tion wa-s taken in the case of Sam Brown of Tempe. For the other two places on the legislative ticket. B. A. Fowler, L. W. Collins. L. W. Hill. Henry Sl05ser. B. S. Jones and A. P. Shewman were placed in nomination. Messrs. Fowler and Shewman having received a majority of the votes in the convention were declared the nominees. The great fight of the day next oc curred, the contest for sheriff. On the first ballot the contestants received: Sheridan, 64: Crouse, 34; Stoner, 31: Sturgeon, 27. On the second ball t Sheridan itfeeivid 69 votes: Crouse, 3S: Sturgeon. 25: Stoner. 26. On the third and final ballot, Sheridan received the nomination as follows: Shi ridan, 89; Crouse. Til: Sturgeon, 2: Stoner, 10. It should be etated in the Interest of strict I accuracy that Jack Burrow; won some cigars on this ballot. M. W. Messinger was nominated for re-election to the office of treasurer by acclamation. Thr-r.? was a discussion regarding the representation of the piedincts in the central committee. THE NIGHT.

Charles Barnett was nominated for assessor by acclamation. Anothi r great cataclysm was intro duced the defeat of T. E. Flannigan fer the nomination for 'Mstrict attor ney, by A. J.

CUBAN AFFAIRS Comment On Party Sway In the Island FORUM AND PRESS Much N Discussion Over Continued Length of American Occupation. Opinions of Leaders and Outline of Party Ideals Factional Ele ments of the Conservatives or Pro-Americans. Havana, Sept. S. Since General Wood's departure on his journey around the island several events have happeneel in Havana which have cre ated great interest. The first was the long announceel meeting of the union democratic, or conservative party. At this meeting some interesting speeches were made, the most commented upon being that of Dr. Eusebio Hernandez. This speech consisted mainly of fault finding with the Americans for calling the constitutional convention now, and for mistakes made by the administra tion in dealing with Cuba. Dr. Hern andez said sotne bitter things about the Americans, many of which, it is un derstood, the party intends to take back. To those who had not watehed carefully the progress of this party this storm of criticism was a surprise. The party was always known as conserva tive, which term had come more or less to mean pro-American. It is true that the party is pro-American, but by that must be understood not any leive for America and Americans but appreci ation of the advantages to be obtained for Cuba by close relations with the I'nited States. A large element of this conservative party is pro-Spanish in ideas and sym pathies, but the party being a minority, without the presence of Americans it would be impossible for its members to make themselves felt by mere argu ments. The noisier element would cer tainly rob them of all influence. Hence one of the reasons of their desire for the stay for some time in Cuba of ttn? Americans until passions be calmed down and the right of the quieter ele ment to have some say in public mat ters is more recognized. Aneither speech of Interest was that -f Senor Govin, who argued against the? tendency shown through the provinces for a feeleral feirm of government for Cuba. The speaker argue-d that when a feeleral form of government existed, it existed on account of the previous ex istence of several independent units edose together, which had combined for their mutual benefit. Instances of this being the I'nited States, Germany and Australia, Senor Govin inf-rred from the South American republics no good lessons could be learned. To establish a federal form of gov ernment in Cuba would mean that th-? island, hitherto a I'omplete govern mental unity, would have to be first split up into six different governments and these united to form- one whole. This would be unnecessary and unprof itable. Cuba, he said, was not rich enough to bear the expenses of six gov ernments besides a central one. Again, could Santiago be delivered to the black race which it would have to be if Cub were te be a federation of states? And what guarantee would Cuba have against the strong local sentiment know n as "regionalismo" becoming un der a federal form of government so ex treme as to prompt mere districts t" demand their recognition as states? This regionalismo is a strong locI riv alry between towns and elistriots and is very marked in Cuba. It exists be tween towns in the same province and is largely independent of the provinces themselves. Senor Montoro received a most over whelming reception. For ten Tvinutes the people stood and cheered before al lowing him to spe-ak. Senor Giberga spoke in favor of preserving the unity of Cuba for the Latin race, adding that it would satisfy the Cubans in nothing to see Cuba rich and prosperous, but the wealth in the hands of the foreign ers and the language not that of Cer vantes. This speaker aise attack.-d the eliM-tion law. The comments of the local press in the main were more favorable than was expee ted. Perhaps the Diarlo de Mar ina made the most apt remark. After pointing out that the general tone of the speeches was one against the stay of intervention the paper said that those who admitted that intervention was their mainstay and that far more good than evil 'was the result of it should not lay stress on the mistakes made by that intervention but make the best or it. The national party paper. El Cubann. is making capital out of Senor Govin's slighting referenee to the negroe-s. and Juan Gualberto Gi'mez, the leading colored politician of Cuba, was a Ions way from being pleased.
