OMA REPUBLICAN. EIEVENTH YEAR. THCENIX, AIMZONA, THURSDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 27, 1900. VOL. XI. NO. 131. THINKING GAP ON England Has Not Replied to Germany IN SPITE OF RUMORS That the Proposal of the Latter Has Been Declined The United States Will Cease for the Present Trying to Bring Abont an Adjustment of the Chinese Question Prince Tnan an Obstacle. Berlin, Sept. 26. Late tb!s afternoon a correspondent of the Associated Tress in Berlin showed the German of fice a private dispatch from London asserting that Lord Salisbury had in formed Count von Hatzfeldt Walde-n-burg, the German ambassador to Great 3ritain that the reply of the British government to the German note would agree with that of the United States. The foreign office thereupon reiterated the statement that this as sertion was positively raise. Upon attention being called to the fact that the dispatch In question did not claim that the alleged Information had 'been received from Count von Hatzfeldt, a high foreign official re read the advices from the German am bassador, and then said: "Lord Salis bury has asked for a few days in which to consider the matter, desir ing to procure certain information be fore giving a final reply. No answer has yet been given, at least no formal answer. There has been some oral discussion between Lord Salisbury and Count von Hatzfeldt, but it is not true that Great Britain has finally replied in the same tenor as the United Staes." HELD UP BY GERMANY. London, Sep. 27. The China question is in the phase of a discussion of the stability of the European concert, and the likelihood of Germany finding it convenient to modify her aggressive attitude. WE'RE GOING SLOW. Washington, Sept. 26. One belated dispatch from General Ch.iTee relative to the conditions Ii Pek'n on the -1st instant was made public today. It is made apparent that our 3 ivernrncn: is again in a waiting attitude, atfer hav ing made an important move toward the reduction of American troops in China, announced yesterday. General Chaffee had not received the departments instructions when he ent his message made public today, but without doubt has it now. His offer to escort Li Hung Chang was in conform ity with the expressed purpose of thi? state department to facilitate in every proper manner the journey of the Chi nese vieeroy to Pekin. Still, it is no.v regarded as just as well that the of fer was declined and the responsibility for Li's safety left with the Russians. The ''nstruction to Minister Cong-r to establish relations with Li and Prince Ching is- still held up here. It is be ginning to appear that the purposa of the delay is to ascertain more clearly the plans of the powers in whose inter est, as well as our own. Mr. Conger was to endeavor to bring about negotiations for settlement. If it shall appear that there is a dis position on the part of any consider able proportion of them to reject in advance the well meant efforts of the United States government to brin about a conference and negotiations and in which they could participate on equal terms with our own government with the purpose of terminating the Chinese differences, then Mr. Conger's Instructions may require recasting. It might be regarded as useless for him to arrange for a meeting of th-; powers with China, which the formpr do not care to attend .owing entirely to different purposes from those ani mating the United States, and there is no disposition to subject our minister to humiliation by a Hat failure which might be anticipated. It also is possible that the news rela tive to the advancement of Prince Tuan to a position where be might in fluence the negotiations, is regarded as most worthy of attention, and that our government may delay rr.x-eedings as long as he stands in the way. HONORING RINGLEADERS. Washington. Sept. 2G. It is stated In diplomatic quarters that official in formation is received that Prince Tuan has been appointed president of the privy council, instead of grand secre tary, as at first reported. The position is equivalent to the premiership. Other Chinese prominent in the uprising have been similarly honored. INSTRUCTIONS TO CHAFFEE. Washington. 'Sept. 26. It is believed Chaffee has 'by this time received in-I struetions relative to the reduction of the force in Chin and perhaps a move-1 ment to execute the order will begin' next week. THE COUNTRY IS QUIET. Washington, Sept. 26. The following has been received from Chaffee: "Taku, Sept. 2.". "I leave for Tien Tsin this afternoon. "Will be absent several days. General Wilson remains here. Li Hung Chang is at Tien Tsin. I understand he starts here soon. I offered him an escort, which was declined. The country is very quiet. There is good order in I'ekin." A NEW ARCHBISHOP. Probably the Bearer of an Important Message from Rome. 3Tev York. Sept. 26. Archbishop John J. Keane, recently appointed to the archdiocese of Sioux City, is due to arrive from Europj today, and a party of prominent Roman Catholic priests and laymen are in the city for the pur pose of welcoming him back to Ameri ca. Probably no American prelate stands in closer relationship to the holy father than that enjoyCd by Archbishop Keane, and It is for this reason that his trips to and from Rome always excite more or less speculation among the ciergy. In the past he has on more than one occasion been the bearer of important messages from the pope, but well Informed churchmen attach no special significance to his return to the United States at the present time. According to cable advices from Rome the archbishop is to proceed with little delay to Sioux City, the seat of his new appointment, and where he will receive the pallium at an early date. It is rumored, however, that he may fee the bearer of important com missions from the holy father in con nection with the Catholic university in Washington, of which he was form erly rector. The trustees of the uni versity are to hold their annual meeting within the next few weeks and it is re garded as possible that Archbishop Keane may remain in the east until that time in order that he may com municate to the trustees in person any message he may naive for them. COBRA THE FASTEST BOAT. Beats the Viper's Record of 43 Miles an Hour in an Unofficial Trial. London, Sept. 26. The torpedo boat destroyer Viper's marvelous record of forty-three miles an hour has already been eclipsed and the fastest vessel in the worM is now her sister ship, the Cobra, The latter was built by the Armstrongs and 1s an exact duplicate of the Viper, which was built by Haw thorne, Leslie & Co., at their works at Newcastle. Both have the turbine en gines. The contract speed of each was 31 knots. The Viper did 37.113 knots on July 13. The Cobra,' in an unofficial trial over the same course at the mouth of the Tyne the other day, made 37.7 knots, or 43.5 miles. Her engineers say that she has not yet done her best, and that they expect fully another knot. The admiralty has now taken over the Cobra and an official test will shortly be made. The details have been announced of two monster liners which are being built for the North German Lloyd, th Kaiser Wilhelm II. of 19.500 tons and 39.000 horse-power, and the Kron Prinz Wilhelm of 15,000 tons and 33,000 horse power. o LOOTED THE TREASURY Robbers Make the County Treasurer Assist.

New York, Sept. 26. The democratic 1 leaders are engaged in raising a cam paign fund. There was a conference J on this subject in ex-Senator Edward I Murphy's room in the Hoffman Houso. It was learned that plenty of boodle is 1 available, and that Tammany is ready ' to contribute heavily to the fund. Among those who attended the con ' ference were Richard Croker, O. H. P. 'Belmont. Chairman Frank Campbell of ' the state committee; Chairman Wil I liam J. Stone of the eastern branch of 'the national committee: James J. 1 Coeigan and William McAdoo, ex-as-' sistant secretary of the navy. I Richard Croker said today that he ' was going to stop talking. He said he had answered too many republican lies already, and he didn't intend to notice them any more. They were put forth, he said, just to draw him out and place him on the defensive, and he didn't propose to bite on any more bait. The Tammany chieftain was asked about the report that he and his lieu tenant, John F. Carroll, are heavy stockholders in the Atlantic Coast Realty company, which has just raised the amount of its stock from $1,000, 000 to $1,600,000. "I'm done talking," he said. "This is Another republican effort to draw me out." "How about the story that the demo cratic state leaders cannot agree as to the proper issues to discuss on the stump?" "Another republican campaign lie. I'm not going to talk about it." Senator William F. Mackey, the democratic candidate for lieutenant governor, is going home to Buffalo to- fear.: AN "ISSUE" FOR night, and will prepare for his stump ing tour through the southern tier of counties. He said today: "I have not made up my mind just what I shall talk about on the stump. There is no truth in the report that differences exist 'between Mr. Stanch field and my self as to the proper sub jects for discussion. The fact is, each speaker will be at liberty to talk about the things in which he is especially in terested. In this way sameness will be avoided." Norman E. Mack of Buffalo was an other of the- big democrats who denie-el today that there was any friction over the question of which is the paramount issue. The democrats have greater troubles than the mere question of , parariountcy, and, besides, they have ' so many paramount i.-sues that, as Senator Mackey aid, '-everybody can take their choice-."

A REVIVING MARKET Signs of an Early Activity in Stocks There Is No Fear of Bryan's Election But an Apprehension of Demo cratic Gains Which May Be Mis interpreted Abroad. New York, Sept. 26. (Special). The inertia which had settled over the stock market in July and August seems to be finally dispersing, and greater activity is developing in all sections of the mar ket, now that absentees are returning from their vacations. Somewhat con trary to the expectations of many, the market has displayed more or less weakness, and the large operators show no disposition at the moment to lend their support to a bull movement. The sound conditions of general trade, industry and finance are freely admitted; but for the time being the many favirable conditions which un doubtedly exist are overshadowed by the approach of the elections and purely speculative influences. While very few judges of public opinion doubt that thj silver forces will meet with another and final rout, still there is much likelihood that the election will develop seme un pleasant surprises. Now that the ele ment of fear is less pronounced than four yaars ago, it is probable that many who voted for sound money in j 1896 will return to their accustomed party, and thus apparently lessen the sound money vote. While this would not indicate any national change of sentiment in regard to that particular question, still such results would b? ac cepted unfavorably in many quarters, and especially abroad, where faith in our national integrity is apt to bej judged more by our action than Dy our intentions, no matter how honest the latter may be. Moreover, the market would not take kindly to losses on the sound money side, such as may happen in several states; and in case the next congress should have an increased number of "16 to 1" members, as is not impossible, that would be still further cause for dissatisfaction among certain holders of stocks. Another fact of particular importance from the speculative point of view is that, in spite of the preponderance of optimistic views, buyers could not be found for stocks and bonds at the re cent level of prices. There is an abund ance of money both for investment and speculation; . yet the inducements have not yet become sufficiently attractive. There are lew bargains besides. The big operators are not ready for an ad vance, and the public, which never buys at the bottom, is waiting to see an up ward movement of some force inaugur ated before it takes part. Some shares are selling at considerable recessions from the high figures of 1899 and 1900; others are still held at prices which of fer no apparent attractions to new buy ers. Hence some future readjustment of values, therefore, seems to be in or der; and no better opportunity than now is likely to be offered for getting the market into form for a fresh bull movement later on. A decline of a few points in some of the active shares would in reality bring back activity to the market, and lay the basis for re newed large speculative operations. During the last few days the bear traders have assumed an aggressive at titude, owing to the let-alone policy of the bulls, the political uncertaintic-s, the talk of higher money rates, the unset tled condition of the iron trade, the strike in the coal trade and the fear that it may incite further labor troubles. It would however be easy for the market to become oversold in pres ent conditions; so that sharp rallies may be expected to follow any pro nounced declines. This increased ac tivity will encourage trading on both sides of the account, but any large commitments on the long side should be postponed until the speculative out look brightens, or prices have more closely touched bottom. As yet the market has not had a thorough test, and liquidation does not seam complete. STARTED AT SEA. Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 26 A notable wed ding here today was that of Miss Irma Grey Ridley of Huntsville, Ala., and Captain Conway C. Wyatt. late of the British colonial service.

VERYQUIETSTRIKE No Important Change in the Situation TROOPS NOT NEEDED But Held in Readiness in Case of an Outbreak The Strikers Disposed to Meet the Operators Half Way. In One Case Only Is the Unien Principle Dragged in The Tenth Day. Philadelphia, Sept. 26. This was the tenth day of the miners' strike and j there is no indication of a surrender or , concession on either side. In fact no overtures looking to a settlement of differences have been made by either the strike leaders or the operators. Various propositions of settlement by arbitration have been put forward by persons not directly connected with the mining business, but thus far practi cally no progress has been made in this direction. The most noteworthy feature of the strike ds the remarkably good behavior of the strikers up to this time, especi ally when it is considered that the claim is made that more than 100.000 mine workers are Idle in the anthracite region. WATCHING MARCHERS. Hazleton', Pa., tiept. 26. The request made yesterday by Sheriff Harvey for troops, although not refused, was not granted by Governor Stone. The sher iff and state officials at Harrisburir, however, have an understanding; be tween them and if necessity arises sol diers will be thrown into the region in short order. The sheriff had a long- talk w;ith Adjutant General Stewart over the telephone and they agreed that ire view of the calmness now prevailing throughout the Lehigh valley it would be inadvisable to send an armed force here at this time. No disturbances were reported in this region today. Rumors of contemplated marches of strikerb are constantly in. circulation, but as far as can be learned there is no truth in any of them. A march early yesterday morning from, Cranberry to Derringer was kept sec ret until startin- Mme end the strikers may again gcJ'wayt on a similar march. The sheriff is kept well informed of every move made in the way of marching and will try to be on hand in, every instance to see that life and prop erty is not placed in jeopardy. The Markle collieries were suspended today so that the employes could hold a meeting to discuss the firm's answer of yesterday. The meeting was held in the forenoon and this afternoon a committee composed of the employes of the several Markle mines was appoint ed. They accept the firm's proposition in regard to the hoisting of men from the stope, acquiesce in refusing to pay miners by the hour, and want to arbi trate all other grievances excepting those relating to semi-monthly pay and the location of powder houses, which have been adjusted by the answer of Markle & Co. The men also decided to remain- at work pending arbitration negotiations. ANOTHER TIE-UP. Shenandoah, Pa., Sept. 26.

The sentiment among the miners strongly favors remaining out till the union is recognized-. AN APPEAL FOR TROOPS. Hazleton, Pa., Sept. 26. Sheriff Har vey reetuested troops to be sent to Luzerne county yesterday and had a long talk with Governor Stone over the telephone today declaring that the situ ation was getting beyond his control.
