to-night in the First Presbyterian Church
of thi6 city, of which his son-in-law, Rev
A M Dulles, 1b pastor In the course
of his address he made the following
reference to the Chinese riots.

"1 am in full sympathy with the prevail

their own benefit.
"There seems to be in a part of the

of the ground upon which our government
bases its intervention on account of these
riot. It 1p not becuuse we are a Chris
tiau country, and are seeking to support a

citizens, pursuing an avocation guaranteed

positively known that thirty-rive doomed
men are entombed in the" Osctola mlue,
with no possibility of the lecovery of
their bodies until 4he fjre is extinguished,
which may not be for months.-'
It is the opinion of some of the oldest
ofricials of the mine that the rire was
the work of an incendiary They say
there is no other explanation or the rire
starting In that portion,. as no oil, waste
or rubbish is itecd or accumulated there and
the timber w'ork is out or leach of the
lamps on the miners' hats.
All or the doomed miners might have
escaped bad they heeded warnings, as
Capt. Edwards, who was the rirst to
detect the existence of rire, dispatched
messengers to every slope where the miners
were known to be working. As tbe mine
5s not heavily timbered exceptin tbe sharts
the Idea or serious danger was scouted.
By going a round about way all the men
who were In the lower level or No. 4
