Samuel D. Burchard, of New York city,
who had been unconscious since early 1
this morning, died at 3:30 o'clock this j
afternoon. He attended the First Pros- i
byterian church last Sunday and was i
nlrnn ill tn thn OVCninif. but WttS llOt *
considered to be in u serious condition
until Tuesday. Iiis illness developed
into peritonitis and last night he
reached a critical stage. Dr. Burchard
was born in Stouben, N. Y., on September
0, 1812.
Dr. Burchard caino prominontly before
the public in 1884 when n reception
to Mr. Blaine, the then Republican
candidate for President, was tendered
at tho Fifth avenue Hotel in Now York
by several hundred ministers of various
denominations. Dr. Burchard
was there and had been choson to address
Mr. Blaine in behalf of the
clergy who gathered in the grand
corridor of the hotel on the second
floor. Mr. Blaine was escorted from
his rooms on tho third floor down tho
staircase in full view of tho clergymen
and others who had gathered to greet
him. Pausing on the staircase, a naif
dozen steps above the corridor floor,
where the throng waB, Mr. Blaine stood
and awaited tho address of welcome
that was to be tendered him.
Dr. Burchard left his colleagues and
ascended tho staircase to the stair below
Mr. Blaine. An Associated Press j
representative stood on the stop between
tho two men. Dr. Burchard
spoke, and as he ncnrod the close ol an
address of affectionate regard and esteem
for Mr. Blaine, he used practical- 1
ly these words: "And we admire and e
we welcome you, Mr. Blaino, as 'the t
steadfast opponent of rum, Romanism
and robollion." Years later Dr. Burchard,
while speaking of tho incident c
with tho Associated Press representa- c
tive who stood near liim on tho day it 1
occurred, said: "Well, I don't know t
but that I may have been tho humblo
instrument in tho hands of Divine e
Power to effect exactly tho contrary of }
what X had in my heart to do when I t

Ching Chang, the Chinese Ambassador
to the European courts, has recently
been in St. Petersburg whero he suc:eeded
in inducing the Kntsfan government
to withdraw from the joint action
projected by the powers. Ilo arrived
in Berlin to-day with the view of trying
to influence Chancellor Von Caprivi,
but it is certain lie will not alter the
letermination of tho German government
to cooperate with the British
ill taking decisive measures. Tlie l'ekin
note as given to the papers fails to inlicate
the real character of tho appeal
made by Hsu Ching Chang to the European
governments. lie has urged that
tho Imperial Government was entirely
!ionest in desiring to suppress the disorders
and seeking time to deal with
:he anti-foreign movement and that
precipitate action on the part of the
powers would defeat their object and
bring China into anarchy. His communications
distinctly suggest tho
probability of sach a potent political
ipheavai in China, as might overthrow
,ho Munchu dynasty.
British Minister Walshall to China
idyises Lord Salisbury that persistent
liplomatic pressure, combined with a
national demonstration at certain of
he treaty ports, will be the only eficcivo
means to protect resident outrages,
fie complains the promulgation of the
Emperor's edict against attacks on foreigners
has been unnecessarily delayed.
The minister also complains of the uncertainty
of the punishment of the real
eaders of the outrage. In spite of the
chaotic condition of the present troubles,
the foreign otlice here hopes that the
ultimate result will be an extension of
he trade to important centres of the
i'ang Ste Kiang, which are now closed

Gladstone's coming si>e5?ii.
Mr. Gladstone's coming deliverance
it the liberal federation meeting is inrested
with further importance by the
mthorized announcement that he intends
to reviow Lord Salisbury's fo^oijjn
jolicv, and declare what his own will
jo if he should again be placed in power.
The federation proceedings are not
ikelv to astonish the world with any
startling variation from the cut and
lried programme, but if expectation
proves correct, Mr. Gladstone will make
;ho meeting memorable by a statement
)f foreign policy, committing the liberals
to a lino of action directly oimosed
,o that of Lord Salisbury. Mr. 31orley
ias alroady declared that the next
Gladstone administration will accomllfsh
the evaluation of Egypt with the
jriefest possible delay.
The Gladstone liberals continue to ar augo
for the future on the supposed
:ertainty of their being in power by the
