?Ministers in China Representing

(Preparations for Dispatchjng

Peking, November 24.?At a mooting
of the ministers representing the for?
eign powers hero It was decided that
it would bo advisable to Increase tho
legation guards.

Washington, November 24.?Although
the United states, together with the
Other powers with Interests in China,
la making preparations for sending de?
tachments of troops to China for tho
purpose oi keeping communication be?
tween Peking and the sea open. It was
etuted at the State Department to-day
that the preparations for the dispatch?
ing of American troops lo the trouble
?ana had not been completed.
11 was mode plain that this country
was not taking the initiative In any
movement toward China, but was act?
ing in conjunction with the other In?
terested powers. The dispatch of theso
troops, which will not In any way be
an invading force, but merely to guard
the railroad running out of Peking and
to the sea, will depend wholly upon th.?
decision of tho council of foreign min?
isters, which meets altnont dally at
Peking to consider the situation. j
When these men believe that It Is
desired to hive additional guards both
at Peking and along the railroad, a
message to the various governments
represented will be the key for the
marching of the Boldlers to the scene.
Kusels, ll was announced, has already
completed her preparations for Bend
Eng soldlers !n case they arc needed. J
a units Word From .Mr. Cnlboun.
Although the army Is ready to em?
bark troops at Manila on the transport
Bhern.an at a moment's notice. It .was
muted that nothing will be done fur?
ther until word comes from Minister
Cnlhoun. at Peking, that there la need
of American troopn.
It was upon tho minister's recom?
mendation ucvern; days ago that Iho
Sherman was detained at Manila, and a
composlto organization of Infantry,
transportation service, signal corps
men and machine gun dctacbmentB w.ts
made up, ready to embark for Chln
wongtao, one of the points on the road
to Peking.
Mr. Caihoun has been In dally con?
ference with the other foreign minis?
ters at Peking regarding the situation,
and it Ib understood that tho powers
are acting In perfect harmony In tho
mutter of Increasing the number ot
foreign troops In China.
Appeals from both factions In China
to refrain from Inflaming the public
by landing additional troops has so
iar made tho officials reluctant to pre
ofpitate a crisis and perhaps endanger
Je lives and property of foreigners at
joints remote from the treaty ports,
-.vhoro foreign warships are unable to
proteot them. However, the Stete De?
partment Is perfectly willing to allow
Mr. Caihoun to exercise his discretion,
and the troop's will be embarked at
JUunlla the moment he gives the word.
The city of Chunking, province ot
Bzechucn, Is In the hands of the revo?
lutionists, according to a dispatch from
American Consul Albert P. Pontius, at
that place. No disorders havo been
committed. Foreigners are safe.

fact that Mrs. Tewksbury waited nearly'

died without funds.

engaged in paring down their esti?
mates for the next fiscal year, fol?
lowing directions from the President.
James Wilson, Secretary of Agricul?
ture, said:
"One thing I would like to get more
money for is to teach tho Northern
farmers how to farm. I am asking
for some money for this purpose, but
I would like to hnvo a great deal more. '
These fellows up North don't know I
how to farm. Out that's not the worst
part of It; they won't lenrjj. They
simply will not let any one touch
them anything. It's rather hard to lay
one's linger on their specific ailment as
farmers, but there Is ? general trouble
they all suffer from, a'ntl that Is that!
they will not be tal'/rht. In short, theyj
think they know it all, when n? a
mutter of fact tho opposite Is qultn
"The fellows down South are anxious
and willing to be taught, and the con?
sequence Is that they tiro making great
strides; but these Northern farmers?
well, they simply know too much al?
ready for their own good."
