The members of the Chinese Legation In this city hate just celebrated the Empress Dowager's sixty-fifth birthday. The prin cipal cent was a banquet at which Minis ter Wu gave an historical sketch of the Donager's life and j'peke of the many ad mirable qualities of their renowned sover eign. Only those connected with the lega tion were In attendance. In China the celebration Is now going on with unabated enthusiasm and great splen dor. It will continue by the people as long after the state ceremonies have ceased as they have the wherewithal to pay for their celebrities. Although the Empress Dowager's birth day takes place only once a year, it is stated that the event is celebrated at any lime and as often as Her Majesty's sub jects need to be impressed. It was cele brated when she desired to reinstate Li Hung Chang and again when the powers threatened to retire her from the throne and restore the Emperor Tsl Thsi. For three dajs before Ti Cho's birthday, all the high officials and dignitaries wear what they call the flower dress. It con sists of the richest silks embroidered with flowers from top to toe In pure gold. At S oclock in the morning of Ti Cho's birthday it is the duty of the first minister to go to her palace and salute the sover eign. After that the doors are opened and the other state officials in order of their rank prostrate themselves before her. The common folk in the meantime are cele brating according to their various Inclina tions. Thicughout the day the emblazoned trcops march up and down the streets of Pekin and execute military maneuvres 1n the court of the palace. At night the Em press Dowager repairs to the private thea tre in the palace accompanied by all the high officials at the capital. A player who appears before the footlights on this occa sion has his torture made. After the per formance Ti Cho retires and the scenes of rejoicing end. How well TI Cho has governed the great empire and promored the interests of the country for over thirty years may be easily seen by comparing the China of recent years with China of 1860-"S1. when rebel lion was triumphant and the impsrial au thority almost effaced. Upon the outbreak of the war with Japan the Empress re quested that the money being set aside for her birthday celebration be used for the purposes of war. showing that she is self denying as well as exacting. All China is now feasing with great cer emonies and wonderful displays, in honor of the beloved Empress, who, it Is said, was fifty years ago sold as a slave girl by a starving father. It ishoth!ng new to students of Oriental history to read of a woman ruling a vast empire with more than masculine vigor, but the extraordinarily successful record of the Empress Dowager of China has never been surpassed. if it has ever been equaled, in the records of feminine state craft in the East. She found China, in the words of one eminent writer, "with the prestige, re sources, and peace of the realm reduced to their lowest ebb," with the most fruitful provinces a desert, with three great and apparently successful rebellions raging si multaneous in different parts of the em pire; with a load of debt, caused by an un iucces'.I foreign war. during which the capital was in the hands of the invader she found all these when her husband, the Emperor Hienfunc. died in 1S61. The world knows how all this was chang ed, and when she handed over the reins of government to the joung Emperor in 18S9. And how she took it away from him again in 1S!7. when his powers failed. Profound peace reigns over the eighteen provinces and the vast regions outside them, and there never was a time In the history' of China when she was more respected by her subjects than now.

Bodies of Gold Hunters AVaislied Asbore Xear Cape York. TACOMA, Wash.. Nov. 16. The steamer Alpha brings news from Cape Nome that at least seven men hae lost their lives while stampeding to' the new gold Delds at Cape York. An Indian brought news io Cape Nome that several bodies were wash ed upon the shore a little south of Cape York. They apparently met death while rounding a high promontory. They chose the sea beach rather than go miles arojnd, and the Incoming tide engulfed them. The whaling bark Alexander sailed close in shore from Cape Prince of Wales to Cape Nome. Her captain reports that nu merous parties ot gold hunters were mak ing their way to Cape York in frail schoon ers and even in rowboats. Terrible storms were raging even then, and he feels cer tain, that many ot the prospectors hate perished.
