ST. LOriS. Mo.. Oct. 10. The ninetieth annual meeting of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions convened this morning- in Pilgrim Con gregational Church and will be In ses sion three days. Between two and three hundred corporate members, officers of the American Board and women's auxil iaries, missionaries from foreign and home fields, a well as prominent minis ters and laymen from many Congrega tional churches, were present. Rev. Dr. Michael Burnham, pastor of Pilgrim Con gregational Church, delivered a short ad dress of welcome, A fitting response to Dr. Bumham's eloquent remarks was made by Samuel B. Capen, LLD., of Boston, president of the American Board, who said, in part: "There will be two thoughts constant ly before us all through these meetings. The first is that it is the closing year of the century, which will be known in nis tory as the great missionary century. "And the second thought will be the fearful story from China. Never before have we held our meetings under such a shadow. We remember the noble mm and women from our firesides who wear the martyr's crown; we remember the native Christians who have not hesitated to show their fidelity by shedding their 1'fe-blood, and our prayers will go out to the home friends whose hearts are bleed ing and torn. Nineteen years ago in this city, the Shan Si Mission was inaugurat ed, this year It has been practically ex tetminated in awful massacre. "St. Louis has held many conventions, pianned business the last few years but I venture to predict that none has been as Important in the greatness of Its outlook as the meeting of this American Board. It reaches In Its influence around the wcrld and has to do with the mightiest forces that can lift the nations. "The Interest of the press in all these gteat world movements Is one of the most significant things of this generation. How different all this Is from the conditions even twenty years ago, to say nothing of the periods in the early history of the Board. "And it ought to be noted to the credit of the daily press as well as the great magazines that as a rule they have un derstood the great crisis in China, Speedily the great truths came home to them that the Chinese uprising was not chiefly because of the missionaries. They saw that the great reason was the in justice of the great foreign nations In st aling their ports and territory and the commercial progress which had often selfishly and heartlessly run rough shod over Chinese traditions arid which was depriving laborers in great numbers of their employment. I am not familiar with the facts in the West, but our press In the East has editorially recognized the humanity and unselfishness, at least, of most of our missionary effort. When we hear of sweeping criticisms, let us re-n-ember there is another side, and recall the great service the missionaries render for humanity and righteousness." Rev. Charles R. Daniels, D.D.. secretary of the home department, read his annual r port, which is the special report of the prudential committee. It was as f allows: REPORTS OF COMMITTERS. The report of the prudential commit tee, home department, stated that death naa claimed rrom the ranks of the cor porate body ten of Its members whose services have ranged from 1S51 to 1898. During the year forty new missionar ies have been sent to their several fields of appointment eleven men, three of whom are physicians, and twenty-nine la dies, twelve the wives of missionaries and two of them physicians. It is expected that at the coming ses sion of Congress a bill will be introduced Including, among other features, the re peal of the legacy tax to Institutions of a literary, educational or charitable char acter. During the past year there has been a rebate In rent to the Congrega tional missionary societies from the Congregational House income of $1,124. The press has been an effective agent for good. The magazines and the secular press have aided the work greatly. In addition to the missionaries assigned under the auspices of the forward move ment committee, some twenty-two mis sionaries or missionary families have been assigned through other agencies. In two cases missionary families have been taken by Individuals. In two cases by en deavor societies grouped for the purpose; In two cases by churches grouped, and the other cases by Individual churches. The Missionary Herald circulation Is In creasing, though slowly. The Congrega tional Work enters about 60,000 families. The wants of the children are still met by the Mission Daysprlng, Issued con Jointly by the American Board and the Woman's Board. The Rev. Charles C. Cregan, D.D., dis trict secretary, makes the following re port from the Middle District, Including Connecticut and Ohio, and the Middle and Southern Atlantic States: The total receipts are only slightlv less than last year, notwithstanding $1,000,000 has been gathered for the sufferers In India from organizations largely center ing in New York. The contributions from the living have increased $16,585. while the legacies have decreased by the sum of $17,278. From the Y. P. 8. C. E. and Sunday schools there has been a gain of $1,354. The women have Increased their gifts $1,019. The Rev. A. N. Hitchcock, Ph. D.. dis trict secretary, presents the following re port from the Interior district, the dis trict including fourteen State's and Terri tories west of Ohio, and the Southern Mississippi 8tates: The twelve or fifteen churches which have undertaken tne support of their own foreign missionary pastors, while largely increasing their gifts during the past year, have not In all cases fully renewed their pledges at the expiration of the year. There has been an Increase In donations from all sources of $,640. Additional gifts for famine re lief and orphan work have probably ag gregated $10,000. The number of churches contributing from some sources has Increased by eighty, while the num ber taking public collections is less by thirty-two. There has been a gain also In Sunday school contributions. The Rev. Walter Frear. general agent, makes the following report for the Pa cific Coast agency: Mission freight was sent by the Aeolus, a schooner newly built for the Jalult So ciety, and by the Queen of the Isles. Four missionaries were sent to re-open work on Ponape. Tne miBsioiKs Ing to and fro have included forty-four adults, and, mciuaing cmiuicu, !Vj persons. The churches of Southern Cali fornia and Oregon have made decidedly the largest gains in gifts to the treasury of the board this year, as did those of Northern California the year before. The receipts are larger by $1,638 than in the previous year. The Women's Mission Board of the Pacific Coast made up the amount pledged, and have a small sur plus They are also undertaking to raise $2 000 for the twentieth century fund. Report of the secretary of the American Bible Society. Rev. E. W. Gilman. D.D.: Since September 1, 1899, we have put at the disposal of your missions in Spain and Austria for the purpose of circulat ing the Scriptures, $850, and we have also made consignments of 12,798 volumes of the Scriptures, of the value of $2,32, for sale and distribution through your mis sionaries in Ceylon, South Africa and Mi cronesia (including Guam). In other part? of the world, where the American Board Is at work, direct and efficient aid has been extended by means of resident nj-.fnts of e American Bible Society. The American Tract Society has made good grants to missionaries of the Board in five of its missions to the amount of $fj92. The Congregational Sunday School and Publishing Society has contributed Sun day school literature to representatives of the board of six different missions, and at nineteen different stations, in value $160. One year ago we reported the increase in receipts from individuals and churches as most satisfactory, amounting to over $39,900 for the distinctive work of the Board, and above $19,000 for the distinct ive work of the women's foreign boards. There has been a gain from these sources this year, but by a much smaller figure. Sne year ago we reported a serious fall off In legacies. This year there has been a remarkable Increase over the pre vious year. The officers and committee of the Board subscribed nearly $37,000 to the twentieth century fund. The plan is to raise a fund of $250,000 from those who are able to give an extra offering which will in no particular conflict with the regular Income of the Board. At least $125,000 has gone from our constituency this year in answer to the cry of distress from India. There are aboui 5.G00 Sunday schools from which we might expect offerings. Of these schools 1,246 made contributions to the work of foreign missions, or a gain of about 78 per cent. The amount contributed was $17,204, or a gain of about 5 per cent over the previous year. There are 3.696 endeavorer societies connected with our churches. Of these societies 1, 637 contribute to the work of foreign mis sions through the Board. There are 2,158 societies left to be brought Into line. The total contributions from these societies are $22,496, as against $21,577 last year. This sum Is divided between the Ameri can Board and the Woman's Boards in the ratio of $11,779 to the former and $10, 157 to the latter. The regular donations from individuals, churches and various societies were $516, 5345. a gain over the previous year of $26, 186. Of this sum $214,774 came through the contributions of the several Women's Beards, an Increase of $14,664 above the receipts of the previous year from the same source. To the distinctive work of the American Hoard the record of last year, with Its increase of $39,465, is still further increased by $11,484. The income from legacies shows an Increase over the previous year of $52,663. The Income rom the permanent funds exhibits a large in crease over last year by $7,125. The in crease of special donations for the year amounted to $19,568. The receipts for the eear from all scurces. Including $1,272 for the debt are $737,957, an increase from last year of $93,756. This Is more than the average for the past five years by the amount of increase in legacies, which was a little over $50,000. The total expenditures of the Board from all directions have been $732,051, anil the debt now resting upon the Board is $82,632. The report of the treasurer, Frank H. Wiggin of Boston, showed that in expen ditures the cost of missions had been $676, 165; the cost of agencies, $17,119: the cost of publications, $9,304; the cost of admin istration, $29,461; balance for which the Board was in debt September 1. 1899, $88,- 6.17; total, $820,588. Receipts. $737,957; bal ance for which the Board is in debt Au gust 31, 1900, $82,631; total. $820,588. CHINESE CRISIS IN BRIEF ITEMS The British wul hold Shan-hai-Kwan. The Russians have evacuated the summer palace. The Fiench are provoking riots in Yunan province. Eight thousand German soldiers will winter in Peking. Half the Japanese army in China will Boon be withdrawn. There is renewed persecution of Christians in Shantung. Wholesale massacres by Russians are reported from the Amur. The powers may destroy the Chinese fleet in Formosa Straits. LI Hung ("hang will go to Peking with a Russian bodyguard. Ching Wan Tao, a Chinese port, has been occupied by the British. After its capture Moukden was burn ed and looted by the Russians. The United States and Great Britain are now in diplomatic relations with China. Prince Tuan's successors are liberal minded men from the province of Man churia. Russians will give the Peking-Tlen-Tsin railroad over to German manage ment. Chang Au. the ancient capital of Chi na, may be re-occupied by the imperial family. The Chinese court will go further in land and remain for a time in Shen-si province. The Empress Dowager was reported, on October 7th, to be seriously ill in the province of Shan-si. The spirit of the Chinese court, in the conduct of the peace negotiations, is as anti-foreign as ever. England is the only one of the powers that has not agreed to the German pro posals in regard to China. The American signal corps beat all other detachments to Peking, and had the first wire working into Peking. The Japanese were next. The order made by General Chaffee for the surrender of all the property held by the Americans along the water front at Tlen-Tsln has been revoked. It is reported In St. Petersburg, ac cording to the correspondent of the Times at the Russian capital, that the Chinese fleet in Formosa Straits at tempted to engage the Russian armored cruiser Rurik, but the latter's speed frustrated the plan. Li Hung Chang has ordered the re lease and safe escort to Peking of five Belgian engineers and fifteen mission aries who have been kept prisoners many weeks at Pao-tlng-fu. Ll Hung Chang is apparently doing his utmost to please the powers. The British river gunboat Woodcock has gone to Hankow to survey the Han river. It is significant of future events, regarding the capture of the Chinese port that the British river gunboat Woodlark is surveying a landing plac near the Kang Yin forts. "The United States Government has proposed to the powers to Insist that Prince Tuan be beheaded; that the Em peror be induced to go to Peking to form a government of progressives, un- Vle ',1Epo ot European bayonets, and that the Empress Dowager be de posed. ' So says a London paper. STEIGEMANN PLANNED HIS DOUBLE CRIME "I write to say that my father-in-law has the right to possess everything that I have. I hope he will take good care of my children. We had been living in Chris tie lane, and during toy absence my wife did something which took her away from me. She left my children from 5 in the morning until 11 at night almost starv ing and went to dark places with this gcod-for-nothing fellow. I don't think there is any harm in killing a wom an of that sort. Dear reader, will you please look to my children? Good-bye. I have no further time but to say that this good-for-nothing fellow and my I wife caused all this trouble. My father j In-law has a right to everything.

LONDON, Oct. 10. Sir Thomas Lipton, later in the day. informed a representa tive of the Associated Press that his challenge is on board the White Star steamer Germanic, due at New York Thursday, and that he prefers that all In formation as to its contents be given out by the New York Yacht Club. The letter challenging contains a suggestion as to the date of the race, which, it is under stood, will be in August.

It Is reported here that a challenge from Sir Thomas Lipton for another series of races for the Amer h's cup reached the New York Yacht Club this morning. At the office of Sir Thomas Lipton today the report that his challenge had reached New York was de nied. It appears, however, that it was recently mailed or that it is about to be sent to New York. NEW YORK, Oct. 10. J. S. Vodie, sec retary of the New York Yacht Club, said tbat a letter was received today from Sir Thomas Lipton, announcing that the Lipton cup for seventy-footers is on the Germanic, due here tomorrow.

Accompany ing the report of Major General Brooke, commander of the Department of the East, to the War Department, was a re port by Major Story, Seventh Artillery Inspector. Major Story states that the personnel of the artillery Is manifestly in adequate to serve the armament already mcunted, and he believes there is such ge t eral recognition of this fact that there will be an increase In artillery fcrces at the coming session of Congress. "It should be remarked in this conn tion," he says, "that the enlisted foit required for one relief to serve the rmj ern coast armament in this military flt partment is estimated at 15,010 men m on the 3Pth of last June the enligtl strength of the heavy batteries n th department amounted to only 4.9S3 men and of these quite a number of artBlen soldiers are required by the exigencies or the service to garrison posts whi not properly artillery stations. "It may also be stated that, with the exception of the artillery school at Fort Monroe, Va., there is not in any imtor. tant harbor In the United Statt s , r the minimum number of officers require: by the coast artillery regulations for tht service of the modern armament, ft control and direction." Major Story comments upon the anil, lery reorganization bill now pending in Congress, and says it is a serious defw; of the measure that it does not supply sufficient officers for staff administration "The number of officers now aiwer,; from their batteries," he says, "is prolj. ably in excess of 40 per cent, and thert it no prospect in the near future of im provement in this respect. If the bill passes In Its present form this unfortu. nate condition will be aggravated, sln.e officers must be withdrawn from the batteries for staff administration. It L therefore earnestly recommended that (lie artillery be put upon the same bayis a? infantry or cavalry In providing i:T:r for staff work." Be venue Bulmgs. Revenue Collector William Haywood calls the attention of local tobacco dealers to the rule of the United Stat"? Treasury department forbidding the removal of tobacco from the original stamped package for display in Bhow windows.
