Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 1. At an en thusiastic Republican campaign rally here to-night the principal speaker was Senator Beveiklge, of Indiana, who repeatedly stirred the audience with his eloquence. Among other things," he said: In this camralfni the paramount Umio Is pa triotism.

Importance of Markets. Markets are the mightiest factor not only in .the prosperity of eiciy one of jou, but in tlie civilization of the world. Aside from revenue, our tariff is of importance onjy in It allects marktto for our products. Our financial sjetem is of importance only us it affects maikets for our products'. Money is only a medium of ex change. A dollar is of no aluo unless you can take it to a market and buy something with it. Your products mean no more to you than the game on which the red man feeds un less you can exchange them in some market for money for which, in another maiket, jou can purchase another product that you want moic than your own. All the agencies of go em inent nro means to two-great ends: The main tenance of social order and well being, and tlie exchange of the products of human toll. Markets control the prosperity of the Ameri can produA'r. Markets control the civilization 'of the wffld. It is through markets that i,1en come; int contact with each other that nation meets ntion, tlfat race mingles with race, Wh'n n Ame.lcan ship carries a cargo to Japan, the factor who sells those goods to tlie Japanese must I speak the tongue of Japan, anil the Japanese, in lulu, ofcub. uuiii jiim du ji.iieiietui jui-aa .iic- carncd with American trade. When an agent ot American manufacturers sells his wares in .Russia, Russian ideas nnd American ideas are uclianged in the process of exchanging the mer chandise. nd so the great shuttle of mutual ideas and mutual knowledge is being -shot back and forth in the great loom of international markets, wearing worldwide tint wonderful fabric, the common civilization of mankind. Prosperity. Hut wlille this work of destiny is glorious, and while you, as an American producer, srp tho chief factor of that work, the thing that interests you today is your own present and im mediate prosperity. You laboring men, mer chants, fanners, all who arc in honest business you want your debta paid; so docs the Repub lican parly. You want money in the lnnkj the Republican parly wants jou to Invo It there. You want the daily newspaper before tho even ing fire, magazines on the table, books in the bands of your children, pictures on the walls of our home; the Republican party wants you to havo them there. And whether all this shall bo yours now mid in the future depends upon whether you have and will have, vnarkets for what you raise and make, And so it is that to secure markets for the 'American producer is tho purpose and problem oi every American statesman, 'ihc public man who docs not understand this is not an intelli gent tervant of the people, and has no business in the halls of tho intion's legislating. The party whose policies are not designed to this 'great end of acquiring markets for the Anurlcun ( producer, is not worthy ot the support of the ' American proiluc er. To Dispose of Our Surplus. In securing these markets for what the Amerlt con producer raises, for what tho workingnun in factory and mill pipduccs, for what the Amcii. can laboring man on ship and railway transports, tho difficult and Important thing Is, not to Iiml markets for tho bulk of our piodiut, but for the surplus ot our pioducts. The bulk of Ameri can products will alwajs be consumed nt home, It is, therefore, n question of tho sale of the surplus upon which increasing wiullli depends. If a farmer raises n certain quantity of mm, ho uses a part of it to feed his hnrc-, his tattle and his swine and the question wllh him Is where to find a market for tho surplus. If we used up at homo all that we raised and mule, our In creasing wealth would be measured only by the development of our resources. Hut when wc raise uud make at home more than we can con aumo ut home, our prosperity depends on finding a market for that surplus. And so the whole problem of prosperity today, and for nil tho future, constats- in llmlln? and securing to out. sches forever markets for what we produce In factory and on farm moro than wo ouiaelics con. eume. , Mutuality of Interests. In doing this, wo cannot look for foreign mar kets for American agricultural pioducts only that would not best benefit tho Ameilcan fanner, You cannot look for foreign marl.it for Ameri can manufactures only that would not best benefit the American manufacturer or tho labor Ingtnin whom that manufacturer employ.

Ity Inclusive Wire from The Associated Press. Galveston, Texas, Oct. 1, John Sealy, chairman of the finance committee, a sub-committee of the Galveston central relief committee and custodian of the Galveston relief fund, has given the following to the Associated Press: (lalveston, Texas, Oct. I. All subscriptions tint hate been turned over to mo up to and Including Oct. 1, lPOU, from nil souices, amount to $81,01. This amount includes all money received by me direct, all recoiled by Major W. C Jones, and also $.109, 5(11) i emitted to no by Goiernor Savers out of subscriptions made to liltn. The goiernor ha3 also ouleied a further remittance to me or "100, 000, which should reach me in the next few" divs, and be will send me fiom tlmj to time such additional funds as he may reeelie. We aie now ananging In pioper shape a full item ized statement of all receipts and amounts ex pended, which will bo duly published. (Signed) John Sealy, Chairman of the finance Committee. Apropos of Mr. Sealy's report the News tomorrow will say, editorially: "The pressing need of Galveston Is money with which to shelter more than 8,000 persons now homeless and to make habitable tho homes of many others. Some correspondents have sent out statements to the effect that millions have been conttibuted for the relief of Galveston one published statement fixed the amount at $15,000,000. These statements have led the public the generous, liberal public astray and have had a tendency to check the im pulse to give, because It seemed that the requhements had been met. But the real truth Is that Galveston has up to date lecdved only $881,04'3 a sum but little more than sufficient to bury the dead, remove the debris, accom plish thp work of sanitation and to pay the expenses for food and clothing Which the relief committee had to buy before supplies of food and clothing began to arrive from the outside world. And In this connection, with a prop erty loss of 20,000,000, Galveston Is called upon to face a problem of re habilitation and to provide for the housing of more than 8,000 homeless people. "Nature has been kind since the storm; there 'liaB been no rainfall of consequence; the weather has been pleasant -and tho winds have been tempered. But these conditions can not last and much greater suffering than has been endured up to this time must ensue If provisions are not made, and made quickly, to house these vic tims of tho storm. "The relief fund Is being drawn on heavily to pay men for removing the debris, thus enabling them to help themselves and at the same time pre venting a demoralizing condition which would result If able bodied men were permitted to draw supplies without rendering an equivalent. But this merely enables them to provide the ne cessities of life and Is not creating roofs over tho heads of their families nor over women and children who havo no ono left to work for them. "Miss Clam Barton has told the world of the conditions existing In Galveston and has estimated that at least $5,000, 000 would be lequlred to meet the ur gent necessities. The News supple ments her appeal with the statement that the contributions up to date ng Kiegato $881,043 and has asked the As sociated Press to spread this statement to tho world In order thnt the false impressions made by unauthorized and unfounded publications may be coun teracted so far as It Is possible to do," O'BRIEN OUTPOINTS BONNER- Ity llxcluslic Wire from The Associated Press. 1'hitadelphia, Oct.

WHERE BLAME IS PLACED Tho Emperor of China Holds the Ministers Responsible for All tho Troubles and Bloodshed They Will Be Punished by the Imperial Courts Appointment of Yung Lu as Peace Envoy Will Not Be Ac cepted by the United States. By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press. Washington, Oct. 1. Several Import ant dispatches were received today from China. Generally they tend to confirm the events recorded Saturday. From Canton, Mr. Wade, the United States consul, reports the issue of the decree punishing Tuan and his col leagues. That confirms Sheng's state ment. Mr. Conger has been officially noti fied of the personnel of the Chinese peace commission which was .fore casted by Minister Wu's advices sev eral days ago. No reference to the Tuan condemnatory decree Is made by the United States minister, hence It Is inferred that it was not issued when his dispatch was sent last Thursday. The text of the two dispatches fol lows: Canton, Oct. I, 10C0. Secretary of State, Washington. Decrees just issued. Kmperor blames minis ters for whole trouble. Orders Tuan, Kangi and otlicr officials degraded and punished by Imper ial courts. Kmperor holds Tu.ni and others en tirely responsible bloodshed. JlcW.ide. Pekln, Sept, 27, 1000. via Taku, Sept. :.0, l'JOO. Secretary of State, Washington. Hae received notice today from Prince C'hlug that he, Earl Li, Jung I.u and Vicerois Tin Kun Yi and Chang Chip Tung will act In conceit in negotiations for peace. Jung I.u is in Iho in terior. Li Hung Chang is at Tien Tsin. Conger. It is evident' that .the two viceroys mentioned are Liu Kun Yi, the viceroy of Nanking, and Chang Chlh Tung, the viceroy of Wu-Chang, the differ ence In spelling being In telegraphic transmission. There has been some question as to Yung Lu being a mem ber of the commission, but Mr. Con ger's report settles all doubt. Minister "Vu received an edict naming Yung Lu as one of the commission, but that was questioned in other Chinese quarters. The appointment of Yung Lu is nob likely to be satisfactoiy to any of the powers. He has made himself almost as offensive as Prince Tuan. He Is generalissimo of the imperial troops, and Is regarded as mainly responsible for the persistent fight on the lega tions during the,scrlsls. The other com missioners are highly acceptable. Earl LI and Prince Chlng are favorably known and the two viceroys are among the most pacific, enlightened and pro foreign men In the empire. Li's Stay at Tien Tsin. It Is the understanding of Minister "Vu that the viceroys will not come to Pekin to take part in the commission but will bo consulted by telegraph. Li Hung Chang's long stay at Tien Tsin is exciting some comment, as he i's aware of t'he American instructions to Minister Conger to open negotiations with him at Pekln. It gives the idea that he is not fully satisfied that t'he reactionary element In the capital has been overcome, and is awaiting more positive assurances. The attention of the officials of the navy being called to the report from Tien Tsin that the United States is about to take part In a naval expe dition organizing at Taku for opera tions against Shan Hal Kwan, It was said that tho report referred probably to an old project. Some tlme.ugo, while hostilities were In progress a move ment against Shan Hal Kwan was pro jected to divert tho Chlnesefrom their resistance to the progress of the Pekln main column. With the fall of pekln tho necessity for such a movement disappeared. It is regarded as unlikely that the Uni ted States forces will take part In It If it be revived by any of the other powers. It Is not deemed good faith on our part to contlnuo offensive movements against the Chinese at this time. Kear Admiral Itemey has re ported to Secretary Long that he will aid In the withdrawals-movement and it Is, therefore, not expected that tho Brooklyn will accompany tho nines' ships to Shan Hal Kwan, If they go there. Ueneral Chaffee reports that ho is moving with rapidity toward the exe cution of the department's orders rela tive to the withdrawal of his troops. RUSSIA AND MANCHURIA.

OPERATORS ON STRIKE Individuals Will Not Join Carriers in Ten Per Cent. Offer. COMMITTEE TO PROTEST Yesterday's Meeting at Wilkes-Barra Develops a Vigorous Protest from the Small Operators Against Being Forced to Make Terms Which. They Cannot Afford While the Big Com panies Have Them Bound Sown by Excessive Carrying Charges. Grievance Committee Appointed to Wait on the Powers That Be in New York and Endeavor to Secure Cheaper Rates for Carrying Coal. The old adage, "There's no telling what a day may bring forth," was never better illustrated than by the kaleidoscopic changes of the strike sit uation. Yesterday dawned with the leaders on the operators' side fairly confident that they had matured a plan whereby the difficulty would' bo settled; the men were td be given a ten per cent, advance in wages and all other griev ances were to be submitted to arbitra tion, all of which was taken to be as suredly acceptable to t'he operators and quite as assuredly acceptable to the miners Today finds the operators far from unanimous in approving' this proposi tion and the miners equally as far from throwing their hats high In air about) It. To speak plainly and succinctly the situation has developed a three-cornered fight. -vThe operators of the entire region met in Wllkes-Barre yesterday at the re quest of the larger companies to pass upon the plan of settlement devised by the superintendents of the larger com panies, at the meeting of Saturday last in the same place. The larger or coal carrying com panies, to use quite as apllcable a term, were advised by the powers-that-be In New York that the strike was to be settled and that a plan of settlement should be at once figured out. The su perintendents of the big companies, or a majority of them, got together Sat urday and agreed that the most? feasi ble plan would bo the posting of no tices at all the collieries Tuesday morn ing announcing a ten per cent, advance and an agreement to arbitrate other grievances, us exclusively told in yes terday's Tribune. Concurrence Needed. Before posting these notices it was necessary to have the concurrence of all the operators and to secure this, the meeting of yesterday afternoon was called. To the great chagrin of tho fathers of the plan of adjustment, the meeting developed a vigorous opposi tion on the part of the individual oper ators to joining In the proposed schema of adjustment. They declared point blank they could not afford to give any such terms while they wero bound down by tho present agreement as to tolls to tldowater. "Give us an allow ance of G5 Instead of the present 60 per cent, of selling prices for our product, and we're with you," said the smaller operators, "but keep the tolls as they are now, and you will find yourselves alone In this contemplated proposition to the miners." The representatives of tho coal car rying companies had no authority to make any dicker about tolls or any thing else with tho individual opera tors and tho meeting adjourned with the two parties still unugreed. Tho question now Is, will tho coal car riers mako new and moro llboral terms to tho Individual operators. The an swer would seem to be furnished by the conclusion reached In the matter ot whether or not they will need to have the concurrence of tho Individual oper ators. The Individual operator is at the mercy of the coal carrying 'companies. Ills profit's uro regulated by the carry ing companies and they ure his com petitors, The Individual operators' profits are now so regulated that Ivi can not Increase his costjif mining ten per cent, und make any money, ha says. Some of them would positively lose motiey by such an operation, they, declare.
