IS PUNISHED :3MPEROR'S DECREE AGAINST LEADER OF BOXERS. ;HOW REGARDED IN CHINA Extreme Penalty for One of His Station-Powers Yet to Be Heard from Washington, Nov. 16-Minister Wu today received from Director General Sheng the following, which he com municated to Secretary Hay: "An imperial decree of November 13, de prives Prince Tuan and Prince Chwang of their rank and offices and orders them imprisoned for life; Prince Yih and the secondary Prince Ying, are also to be imprisoned; secondary Prince Lien is to be deprived of his rank; Dukes Lan and Ying Nien are to be degraded in rank. Kalg Yi be ing dead, no penalty can be imposed upon him; Choa Shu Chiao will be degraded but retained in office; Yu Haien is to be exiled to' the farthest boundary. The Chinese officials mentioned in the decree are among the highest in China, and comprise most, if not all of those against whom the powers de manded rigorous punishment. Prince Tuan stands at the head of the anti-foreign and boxer movemet. Previous edicts have degraded him and taken away his office and ser vants, but this judgment of life im prisonment is the most severe thus far given to any of the leaders responsi ble for the trouble. From the Chinese standpoint, it is the extreme penalty to a prince of the blood, but it remains to be seen whether the powers will regard it as adequate to Prince Tuan's offense. The others mentioned were Tuan's active associates and two of them were specifically mentioned for punishment along with Tuan, in Secretary Hay's note of October 3, advising the Chi nese government that this country would expect those officials to receive their just deserts. Kang-Yi is one of the officials who died suddenly after the demands for punishment had been made, probably by suicide. Yu Hsien is another who was thought to have committed suicide, but the edict indi cates that he is still alive. As the ministers at Pekin also have been considering the question of pun ishments, it will develop speedily when they lay their deniands before the Chinese envoys whether the edict I of the Chinese emperor gives punish ments which are regarddd as adequate to fit the crimes.

Washington, Nov. 16--The annual report of the commissioner of internal revenue for the fiscal yeat ended June r 30, 1900, shows the collection to have been exceeded but once in the history of the bureau, when the receipts were $295,316,107, being $10,16,107 in ex= cess of the estimated amount and $21,831,534 more than during the previous year.

Writes Letter to Mayor Van Wyck in Which He Calls Attiontion to Conditions in the City. New York, Nov. 16-Bishop Henry C. Potter, bishop of the Episcopalian diocese of New York, today sent a letter to Mayor Van Wyck in refer ence to vice in this city and especially on the east side. This letter was promised some weeks ago when the bishop publicly announced thatn one of his rectors had been grossly insulted by the commanding officers of a cer tain police station, and that he pro posed to take up the matter in a manner which the heads of the police force should feel. The public has been awaiting with interest the bishop's first move and in connection with Tammany hall's announcement that it proposed to look into vice and stop it, the bishop's letter received today by the mayor is destined to be the princi pal topic of conversation in public as well as in private. At present there are three separate .movements directed against vice, as it .is displayed on the great east side. These are a quietly conducted investi gation by District Attorney Gardner in connection with Anthony Com stock's society for the suppression of crime; Tammany's appointment of a committee to investigate the present conditions and Bishop Potter's crusade. Mayor Van Wyck at once replied to I the bishop by letter, in which he said I he had passed the bishop's communi- i cation to the district attorney. The t letter continues: "I wish to here c assure you that I will exert every 1 power which the law has given me to a right the wrongs and to d' away with 1 the conditions of which you complain a and to secure the hearty and effective r co-operation between the police de- I partment and all who are working to do away with public violations of law and decency. I stand ready at all times to assist and co-operate with you in this matter." NO RATES FOR VETERANS.

'Santiago de Cuba, Nov. 8,. (Corres pondence of the Associated Press) Three hundred years of continuous yellow fever in Santiago culminated in the terrible epidemic of 1899. In fDecember the last case was cured and s to the everlasting credit of the intelli gence, vigor and fearlessness of the t United States army officers and sani s tary inspectors a year has passed with out a sinlge case. r The yellow fever epidemic at Santi f ago in 1899 resulted in a death rate of 70 per cent of all who contracted the disease, a greater percentage of casualties than is shown for the Mau ser or Krag of those struck in battle. To fortify against the disease and pre vent its entrance this past summer of 1900 was a winter's work for the de partment commander, Colonel Whit side, of the Tenth cavalry and his chief surgeon, Major Carr. The result of two years of American rule had been made to make Santiago, to all outward appearances, as clean as any American city. But it has been a whited sepulchre. Clean asphalt streets, bordered with houses hundreds of years old with no drainage, no sew erage and no attempt of sanitation. Vast areas of buildings have but a single small entrance through which passes all that goes in or comes out. Houses have but one door through which pass servants, visitors, dogs, horses, and all those who call the house their home. Through the same door, if it comes out at all, passes the filth and dirt. In the center of the court or "patio," the only yard a Cuban house has, is usually a well or cistern, which supplies drinking water. From the cesspool, a few yards away, filth percolates constantly 1 into the domestic water supply. It is I the climax of unsanitary building by < a nation which seems to have made a specialty of that sort of work. In one 1 such block a sanitary inspector foun!l 126 people, white and colored, breath- 1 ing the poisoned atmosphere of cess- I pools and drinking drainage from a well in the center. The only ingress I or egress was through one narrow passage way choked with filth. Here c lived or existed, playing in the dirt e with pigs, dogs and chickens, naked t children of both sexes, some of them 1 10 or 12 years old, who had probably 1 never ventured into the streets out- I side. g To locate such places, clean cess- t pools, open drains and force the in mates to clean their houses was a task i1 for the sanitary force last winter. ii The medical officers of the sanitary in- P spector have made a house to house ii inspection thorughout the city. Col- c onel Whitside has had the co-operation b of the city authorities, who have made o it a misdemeanor punishable with fine or imprisonment to resist this inspec tion or to fail to carry oft the ensuing orders. c HE DESERVES IT.

Smart tostume of Poppy Red Cloth. Winter Shirt Wnist-i-A Drab Cloth Costume. The .uorlel is of wild poppy red cloth, trimmed with black watin and gold buittons. The skirt has a wide, plain tablier and is plaited at the sides, the upper part of which is black satin and the lower of cloth in flounce effect, while in the center of the back the cloth extends from waist' to hem and is laid. in half inch tucks to the depth of / I RED AND BLACK WITH GOLD BUTTONS. seven Inches. The plaits of satin at the sides are 1i folds which are united at the bottom and trimmed with gold but tons. The Eton jacket has a vest of the black satin, over which fall two folds of satin, which are set on the edge of the cloth, while three more folds form a smart, flat collar-all these folds be ing adorned with the little buttons. The collar band is enriched with two turn over folds of the satin, which are not ornamented with buttons. The sleeves are beil shape at the wrists, having the cloth cut off in two points and then lengthened by two folds of satin, adorned with buttons.-Philadel phia Ledger. Winter Shirt Waists. Shirt waists for the winter will be of fine light weight ladies' cloth or satin cloth rather than of French flannel or cashmere. These of course will be cut and finished with tailorlike precision and perfection. They will have little trimming save plaits and small but tons. The yoke. one is glad to note, is ereeping back into favor. Nothing is smarter on certain figures than the plain shirt waist model, with its few Scant folds extending from choker to belt, but it is a model not becoming to everybody, and, oh. so difficult to fit! Not so much attention is given now :o silk waists. To be worn with skirt ind Jacket suit the cloth blouse is onsidered more modish, while for Iressier tops lace and panne velvets are he first choice. Some of these have ittle basque effects that seem novel, )ut it is doubtful if they will become lopular. A separate top gives an un fraceful line when It descends below he waist. Plaids that have been so fashionable n thin stuffs all summer are included n the autumn wools. They make gay, iretty fall ernwns and suggest the styl sh velvet '"tming. One of the new cravats in plaid silk is a nice way of trightening the effect of a wool gown r a pretty adjunct to a pique suit. Drab Cloth Costume. The costume represented is of drab loth, tailor made. It is trimmed with A FRENCH IDEA. black silk braid, and the skirt and lap els are ornamented with drab bands of a darker shade. The short Jacket is edged with astrakhan.-Paris Herald. Popular Green. Green is undoubtedly one of the most fashionable colors in millinery, particularly in medium and dark shades, with a touch of gray in them. Brown nevertheless holds its own in all shades and deep toned gray is pop ular with young and old alike. Castor is among the novelties and is a favor ite from the fact that it blends so well. with pink, blue or green. To VESTIBULED TRAINS-DINING CARS. SST.
