When Last Heard From Some
Details From the Situa

London, July 9. The foreign con
suls at Shanghai met on July 7 and offi
cially announced that the legations at
Peking were safe on July i. The forego
ing statement, read with Consul War
ren's dispatch to the foreign ofllco on
Saturday, makes It possible to believe
that the legations will hold out for a
number of days yet.
Having fought to a standstill the first
outbursts of fanatical fury, Is Is be
lievable that something may Intervene
to save them. The news, after the
sinister rumors of the last ten days,
Is enough upon which to build up hopes.
Tien Tsln 1b still hard pressed. A Chi
nese force numbering from 80,000 to
100,000 men, as estimated by inconclusive
reconnoUsances, floods the country
round about Tien Tain, communication
between which place and Taku Is appa
rently possible by river only.
London, July 9.-3 a. m. The Shang

formation. He says:
Taotla Sheng now admits that there
was an error In his communication to
Gen. Warren. The date of the courier's
arrival at Che Foo was July 3, which
does not apply to his departure from
Peking. The Journey from Peking to
Che Foo occupies Ave days. The cour
ier, therefore, could not have left Pek
ing later than June 28. The date of the
massacre there, as given by Chinese re
ports, was June 30 or July 1."
Brussels, July 9. A dispatch from
Shanghai received here eays that, ac
cording to a high Chinese official, the
two legations which were still holding

Bryan will be Adlal Stevenson, nominee
for vice-president; Chas. A. Towne,
and George Fred Williams. Bryan's
utterances will not be regarded as the
opening slogan of the campaign. That

The national committee says the
heaviest assault will be made on New
York and the states of the middle west.
Lincoln, Neb., July 9. The leaders of
the national committee arrived here
last night to confer with Bryan rela
tive to the management of the cam
paign. Those who came were: Senator
Jones, of Arkansas; Chairman William
J. Stone, Missouri; Daniel J. Campau,
Michigan; J. G. Johnson, Kansas; Geo.
Fred Williams, Massachusetts;
Josephus Daniels, North Carolina.
They all declare that a special plank
favoring an Income tax was left out of
the Kansas City platform by accident
in the rush of preparing the document.
Anbther story Is to the effect that this
plank had displeased Hill and for this
reason was omitted.
The Democratic committee have faith
In their ability to Induce the Populists
to allow Towne to withdraw from their
ticket and endorse Stevenson for vice
president. Chicago will be the headquirters of
the Democratic national committee.
This is the prevailing sentiment of the
members as well as of Bryan. Branch
headquarters will be established either
In New York or Washington. Willis
Abbott will continue in charge of the
press bureau operating from Chicago.

London, July 9. A dispatch from Che
Foo says that the American consul has
received a communication from Taku,
under date of Thursday, saying that
10,000 Chinese under General Nleh ap
peared outBlde of Tien Tsln on Wednes
day and re-occupled the east arsenal.
The Chinese are fortifying the native
city of Tien Tsln. The christians at
Chin Fu ht.ve been called to renounce
their faith.

Peking, and tutor of the heir apparent,
has been murdered with his whole
household of 300 persons while resist
ing Boxer pillagers.
The dispatch from Tien Tsln telling
of the repulse of Chinese there on Fri
day last, is assuring, although there is
small question that the fiosltlon ot the
foreign troops at Tien Tsln Is serious.
Between 60,000 and 100,000 Chinese
troops are near the city. They are
reported to have re-occupled the
arsenal north of Tien Tsln on July 4. A
Shanghai dispatch saying that a com
bined force of Russian and Japanese
left Tien Tsln following the railroad to
Langfang and thence swept westward,
attacking the Chinese and killing 1,000
of them Is believed to be a garbled ac
count of some fighting In the city. It
Is not probable that foreign troops are
In sufficient strength to make a sortie.
Russian and Japanese troops are being
landed dally at Taku and It is thought
that within ten days the allies will have
50,000 men aBhore.

Georgetown, Ky., July 9. The trial of
the men accused of Goebel's assassina
tion, which was brought here on a
change of venue from Frankfort, filled
the town with people, this morning.
Two deputies, who stood at the head of
the staircase and nenrchtd everyone
who entered the court room for con
cealed weapons, was evidence that Ken
tucky's etiquette was to be observed.
When Judge Cantrlll asked Sheriff
Shult to call the court to order shortly
before 10 o'clock, the room was well
filled. At Judge Cantrlll's left sat
Col. David R. Murray. The case of
Henry Youti-ley was the first set for
trial, and after reading the docket of
last term, and swearing in deputies,
the work of impaneling the Jury began.
Although Youtsey's case was the first
on the docket the case of Caleb Powers
was called first. After calling 97 wit
nesses the prosecution moved that Prof.
James Stevens be ordered to bring In
to court a letter received by him from
Caleb Powers some time in February,
stating In substance that the present
disorganized condition of the Demo
cratic party was due to him (Powers)
more than anyone else. Only about
one-fifth of the witnesses called re
sponded and the court announced re
cess until 2:30 to allow the defense to
prepare a list of witnesses.

Nine days ago, Leo Daniels, a 12 year
old son of John Daniels, living on SmUi
Harrison avenue, was Injured on the
hand by the explosion of
a blank cartridge in a toy pistol In t3e
hands of a companion. No particular
danger was anticipated from the wound
at the time, but a few days ago It began
to Inflame and rapidly grew worse,
symptoms of blood poisoning develop
ing. The lad became so 111 and suffer
ed so Intensely that Saturday evening
Dr. Calhoun was called and he discov
ered symptoms of lock-Jaw. The symp
toms rapidly developed and Sunday the
rigor of the muscles of the throat and
Jaws was marked and later In the day
the disease reached the convulsive
stage. Dr. Morrow was called In con
sultation and they commenced using
the new serum treatment, which Is pre
pared by the same method as antl-tox-lne
for diphtheria. The treatment mod
ified the convulsions, It Is thought, but
the lad was still In a critical condition.
This new treatment for lock-jaw, or
tetanus, as It Is known by the medical
profession, has been marked with some
success, but cannot be depended upon
as yet to save a very large per cent of
those afflicted.
