TheSights He Saw in India and^Cttiua and Japan.
Rav.F. Fransen of the Scandina^^vian Alliance. Visiting In Ana^^conda, Talks of His Travels^Around the Globe.
Adistinguished traveler I* spending^a f-'w days in Anieonda as the guest^of his Scandinavian friends, whom he^Is entertaining with rivivalisUc talks^and lectures of tils travels In foreign^lands.
Rev.F. Fransen Is the gentleman's^name and he was found yesterday at^the home of Charles Hamilton, on^Commercial avenue, by the Standard^reporter, to whom he tallied of his^work and his travels. Rev. Mr. Fran-^sen Is the director of the Scandina^^vian Alliance Missionary movement.
Wehave^ sadd he. ^that Is, the alli^^ance, between 1W and ltfu missionaries^now laboring In foreign lands. All of^these are supported by the Scandina^^vian churvhes at the United States.^The work Is Individualized In r.n*^country by making some single chun'h^responsible for the support of some^osrtln missionary. This centralises the^responsibility and also centralises the^interest in foreign missions, but the^result has been more than satisfactory.
Mywork now Is to stir up a deeper^Interest In the United States In this^kind of work and to send out others^to Join our forces now In Africa, Ju-^dea. China and Japan.
Ilanded about three weeks ago In^Vancouver from a trip which, when^completed, will have taken me around^the world. I saili d from New York^four years ag^, and spent IS months^In Sweden, where we secured 50 miss^^ionaries. Thence to India, where I re^^mained for some time studying Budd^^hism and its teachings.
Whatdo I think of the Hindoo^JugglersT Most of them are mere^sleight-of-hand ^performers, some are^spiritualists and their work may be^due to dlaboll.ial Influences. I believe^In the dsvll Just as 1 believe In Oo4j^that Is. I believe he exists and exerts^a power for evil. Those people do the^same things that mediums do In Bhls^country. Thev raise themselves from^the floor without visible support and^cause mysterteus grounds. A friend of^mine, whom I must credit, saw one^fellow run a Javelin through his head,^or do so to all awe aranr.-s. The de^^ception was perfect and a moment^later the wounded man was sound and^well.
Puddhtsmhas been spreading, per^^haps not actually, but in the activity^of Its followers, who have been 'teach^^ing its doctrines In this country. It is^a atrange faith that I can hardly con^^ceive will be received readily by civil^^ised people. The Buddhist priests^teach that nine life Iw^flsi Is divided^Into castes, simitar bo those which ex^^ist In India among the natives. There^are six of HMM castes In the future^life and a soul passes Into one of them^at death of the being. There Is no^such Kilns as the forgiveness of sin;^that is left out entirely of their life^and religion. Thev believe In the^transmigration of souls, and the soul^that sins once In this life must return^again and. according to his life, he^will be born again as a man to live^over again, or his soul will enter an^animal, or will be lost In purgatory.^But If he l^e virtuous, according to de^^gree, he will live foraver In the Pewa^Uakas, Phe lower heaven: the Brah^^min I,akas. the middle heaven, or if^absolutely perfect, he goes to Nirvana,^the highest heaven, where he spends^eternity In a blissful sleep, amount^^ing to annihilation.
InChina, which I next visited, I^was given ^ cordial welcome, and con^^trary to the general supposition. I^found the people, even In the interior^^ectlon, not unfriendly to missionaries.^I was not In that section where the^massacre occurred, but I saw several^persons who had been driven out of^the country. A lady, who oame down^from Hong Kow. told me of her ex^^periences and how the mandarins, the^oftlcers there, hid given her protec^^tion. The cause of the entire trouble^was this: The French minister at the^emperor's court, a new man In the^offiVe. Insisted on the enforcement of^a taw which had been for years a dead^letter anil was unimportant excejt In^aplrlt. The law wag that foreigners^had a right to buv and hold property^Without askkng the oonsenH of the^mandarin or anyone else. Tlie custom^has been of late veiars and was before^the law was es: iMisjhed. that a mis^^sionary desiring to acquire property^first asked permission from the man^^darin.
'Thiswas continued as custom after^the law making it an unnecessary pro^^cedure cam* Into effect. The minister^appealed to the emperor, and to fulllll^the treaty, the emperor Issued a de^^cree that the old law was In force. The^decree was s'nt to the govern.^rs or^^ l^eroys. who haw regal powers, and^fa the provinces of Sltywan and Fu-^c^hen trouble ensued. It is supposed^that those viceroys were guilty of dou^^ble dealing, a custom not unusual there.^That they Issued on^ open public after^endorsing the emperor's decree and an^other, a secret order, telling the people^to drive out the foreigners.
Thisis, by the way. what the riots^really were, against t'he foreigners, and^rot missionaries, though the latter^were included. It was an anti-foreigner^BJS ^\ .-mi nt.
Themandarins protected the for^^eigners wherever they could or when^angled to directly, but did not great^^ly exert themselves. In Sitywan no^lives were lost, but many thousands of^dollars worth of property were de^^stroyed. In Fukien io missionaries^were mui 1-red. Tne French govern^^ment w i's prompt to demand reparation^from the emperor, and he has ordered^the etosroy of Mtjrwma to reimburse^the forcigM-rs for every ^yen^ of their^loss.-s. This, it Is believed, will also^apply to the RrlMsh and American In^Fukien the viceroy 1s anxious to satisfy^tlx- 4. nand for r parat; in by killing 10^of his people, on the plan that one life^p.iv* for another. Four of those who^participated in the riots have been be-^h.-.ided and the vic-ny has six more^whom he will k.ll in .s: any time. It^oeems to moke no ^1 iff- r.-nce to him^whether they be guilty or not.
HumanHte Is not highly regarded In^China, either by the government or by^^he people. Beheading prisoners Is^common and suicides are of frequent^occurrence.
Aman who gets very angry at an^enrmv will often go out and commit^^ulclde Just for revenge. It is a com^^mon belief that his sp.rit will then be
ableto plague and harass his foe bet^^ter than the roan could by remaining^to hate him, and refusing to .-peak to^him forever. Resignations of official^offices are usually made by the harl^kari route. The officer falls on his^^VOH and there Is at once a vacancy^on the emperir's staff.
1did n ^t see any part of the war,^and believe that the conquest of China^by Japan is over. The ceded provinces^are under a powerful Russian influence^and, though they are unruly in submit^^ting to the new regime, their conquest^is only a matter of time.
TheJapanese are exceedingly friend^^ly n Americans and would frequently^salute me while passing through the^streets of Toklo with grei tings, and^on all occasions where I conversed ,^with them by means of an interpreter, |^expressed gratitude to the United^States for the Interest this government^has taken In their welfare.
Her,Mr. Fransen is a very pleasing^conversationalist, and speaks Kngllsh^fluently. Though born In Sweden, he^Is an American citizen, highly educated |^and commanding several languages. He |^Is wrapped up in his work and very ;^apt. If possible, to talk to his Inter- |^viewer and interview him. particularly^on religl ^us matters. A crop of long^hair. Inclined to curl, clusters In wooly I^fashion about his head and under 'his i^eyebrows there twinkle a pair of eyes^that look through those with whom he^converses like a man accustomed to^reading people. If he can be prevailed^upon to address an audience in Kn^^gllsh during 'his stay in Anaconda an^Instructive and Interesting lecture may^be expected. His engagements are,^however, entirely with the Scandinavi^^ans, to whom he will speak again to^^night at the new church.
Bvans'was Packed to the Doors to See
^theTornado.^^^The Tornado^ was witnessed by a^packed house last evening at Evans^opera house. The only audience that^has equaled the Jam was the one which^gathered to see ^The Fast Mail^ a few^weeks ago. w hich Is IJncoln J. Carter's^other success. ^The Tornado^ was all^that was claimed for it. The great^storm scene came as near to nature^as stage mechanism and contrivances^can. The roll of the distant thunder^as the storm threatened, the rising of^the wind, then the glare of the mid^^summer lightning, the gathering dark^^ness, and then the fury of the storm^in which a pretty home stage setting^was torn and tent, vanishing with real^^istic crash, flying debris and the wail^of the wind thnt howled over the de^^struction were all seen and heard even^as they sweep across Wisconsin's^pra Iries.
Theactors and actresses were over^^whelmed by the scenic olttract'lons, but^perhaps in a plav without a tornado,^a dissecting room, a Chicago slum^scene, the harbor at night, a full-rigged^ship, and o^ean collision to take up^attention they might wtin higher hon^^ors.

Moilc Teachers' National Assoclntlou^^ lose* tnlil seen ^ of F irlleni nt.
Theannual session of the MusMc^Teachers' National association, which^Began In St. Louis on Oct. 2, closed in^a picturesque tumult of musical en^^thusiasm and in scenes of excitement^such as are seldom witnessed at any^assemblage of so dignified and so rep^^resentative a character. A main fea^^ture^main oharm of the, session had^been the rendering of an'excellent se^^ries of programmes by favorite artists^on concert grand pianos.
TheIncreasing Interest manifested In^these entertaimnente from the start^reached an acme and climax In the^closing hours, when Charles Kunkel,^the famous composer and concert pian^^ist, rendered a brilliant and tlhrllllng^recital, using a Kimball grand piano^as best adapted to the dignity and^greatness of the occasion and to the^critical character of the audience, com-^poaed almost conclusively of musicians^^^the Instrument thus selected being^the same as that used on select con^^cert occasions of the Columbian exhi^^bition.
Inthe course of this crowning and
closingrecital those elements of melt^^ing sweetness and of noble power In^th^ Kimball tone, so often referred to^by Paitl, Tamagno and oBher illustri^^ous musicians, were brought out with^a degree of fervor and ex passion and^with such might and majesty of art^that the vast audience. I,wing Itself in^a climax and transport of enthusiasm,^broke int.i a storm of pi Ledits that sub^^sided only to renew 'itself In yet wilder^demonstrations, till the tumultuous^ovation had continued for fully 15 min^^ute*. The s ene was stirring, pictur^^es.pie and animating In the extreme,^and one nevi r to be forgotten by those^who witnessed It.
