Dozens of women, so her story went, some of them nurs ing mothers, were made to wield the ax - ana crosscut saw. She says the hands were guarded and forced to re main, and had no more liberty than if they were in a convlot camp. During the eight months she and her husbani were held in this species of bondage she avers that the only money given them was a quarter of a dollar given by the "boss" to her husband, after much importunity on the latter's part. She says they were told he was to re ceive SO cents a day and she 40, but that they were informed by the mill storekeeper, from whom all supplies had to be purchased, that they were in his debt when every Saturday night rolled around. , They were also told that their railroad tickets cost $21.50, and had not yet been paid for.

IURING the whole time that we were Kept in suspense about the fate of Europeans ana Christians in Pekln, the first place in my thoughts was given to the women and chil dren, and their ultimate fate. That this iate would be horrible, nobody could doubt who knew the Chinese principle that death itself was nothing, and that the enemy must be cruelly tortured before being , aispatcnea. Novhnra haa nrueltv been so well studied as in China, some tortures showing most fiendish ingenuity in causing , OTntflt. amount of suffering without producing death. This is so well known that only people suffering from an overwhelming sorrow of their own, or under the nf onm o-i-flat iov. or Tjossessed of an absolutely m, mind, could think of anything else since the be' ginning of June, when the first news arrivea 01 oaruu von Ketteler's death, and the riots in Pekjn. That the men would be made to suffer was sure, but they could at least die fighting-but the women, the children? Would they be allowed to fall into the hands of the Chinese? If they could not be saved by their hus bands, or by the soldiers marching to their relief, could they not escape the fate that awaited them at the hands of the Chinese by means of death, dealt mercifully be forehand? This feeling was SO general tnai 11 the canard that appeared i the-newspapers, saying that the women and children had been killed by their own i w. fInB had time to take them.

The attitude of the4 , : , , . writer appears to be that 01 one eameswjr ; i't,.'n,,no- nut. a rlan e'er slsnal. It seems to be tht. thn HiiWect should be treated abstractly, and yet fancies that the world Is In a state of siege. The question, therefore, should be settled without delay-as though it was ever unsettled-because we must know what to do with poor women and children, as events rush on, imperialism shutting up helpless folk in compounds. Tho Shanghai uaasrs jrarssi: aw. " the story that the besieged allies at Pekin had put the women and children to death to save them from linger ing tortures; but there seems to have been a mind be v, Woo,, not, altogether unlike that of our kind- hearted authores whose article is under consideration; that is, if I understand hei-words, where she speaks of what is needed to save women from Sepoys and Boxers. Of this the ungallant anti-Imperialist would perhaps say, i mind thlr own business and stay at home, in stead of exciting articles advocating their "own painless and speedy death" by the hands of husbands, fathers and friends when they fall into perils abroad. - In this connection arise thoughts conflicting and con fusing, and he question resembles an equation, calling ... .. T i .v 'miirvr." even ' p.. afvan fnf.ar.inn. i cuuudi tua - ihouMt is said by an obj.r.ng to the dreadful invention of Shanghai, "death in such easos jvas equal to martyrdom," and that we have no right to deprive them of the "martyr's palm" by killing them. , What Is a "martyr?" Simply one who to Christian principle. Anciently, it was acnoice oi u or death. A pinch of frankincense tossed upon a pagan altar meant life. At Pekln the capture of the compound meant slaughter, Witn cnoice, in. ta m. . . the captive would have marched promptly to the nearest t trm,M burned the reeulatdon perfumed stick; all the while laughing up her sleeve at Celestial slm pltcity. The sordid commercialism mat preys uiwu w East may furnish victims, but few martyrs. . - One willing to intimate uiai womeu should not, under eertaln circumstances, be allowed to suffer slow, painful but inevitable death when painless release Is possible, ' should ready to give some reason for the suggestion. To olalm that it would be in accordance with the better feelings decides nothing. It is idle to assure us tnat pain evil. This statement stands where It has always stood, unproven. it could be argued, on the Christian side, that the deliberate killing of women and children in time of peril to save them from possible ...-in wnniri amount to lack of faith in God, whose providence at the last moment might even save them from tte knife.
