Queen inHer Speech Feelingly Refers to "War in South jsuriuu. London, Aug. S Parliament today after the appropriation 0.111 had been passed by both houses. ' he Queen's speech at the proroguing ef Parliament, after stating that the jelatlons with the powers of Europe r.nd America continue friendly and Making a reference to tho establishment of the commonwealth of Australia, refers to tho war in-South Africa, which has placed in the strongest light the heroism and high military qualities of the troops brought together under my banner from this country from Canada, Australia, and my South African possessions." Tha speech then says: "Relieving the continued Independence of tho to bo a constant danger to the pcaco of South Africa I authorized the- annexation of the Free State as a first step to a union of tho races, under ji Institution which may in time be developed so as to secure equal rights and privileges In South Africa" Referring to China, the speech says: The British and other legations at Peking have been attacked by an insurgent mob and it Is feared many of their inmates have been murdered. How far the Chinese authorities arc accomplices in this atrocious crime anl whether the British Minister and, his family are aaong the victims axe still i wTmcJirUltr. BOSt efforts will be made by xnyIf and mr allies to visit with worthy I "? . - - i nient the authors of this nnexaspil - crime." i After a reference to the- Ashanti ruins, the speech devotes a few words to t. distress caused by the famine and plague in India, thanks the Commons fe for the liberality with which they responded to the unusual financial demands due to the war, and adds that tne satisfactory progress of the campaign gives fair ground for hoping that the excessive requirements of military activity will soon b& abated. An innovation in the Queen's speech v.hich caused some comment was the mentioning of America specifically. he speeches from the throne usually allude to the powers generally, or to the European powers. Babonic Plague in Europe. Hamburg, Aug. 6. A case of bubonic plague has been discovered on a vessel In the harbor. All possible precautions have been taken to prevent the spread of the disease. 4 EYES OF EUROPE- ON ITALY'S NEW KING. New York, Aug. 5. A special to the Times from London says: A question now agitating Italy and Interesting all Europe is what the new King, Victor Emanuel III. will do. He, as is the fashion of heirs apparent, has been In the opposite political camp from his father, and since he attained manhood has congregated with Socialists and leaned to the side of reformers. Will he be prepared to continue this attitude and to face the consequences? Should he do so and prove to be a strong man, with political qualities like those of the grandfather, only of a higher order, then he may regenerate Italy. On the other hand, should he be driven by the murder of his father into the arms of reactionaries and attempt once more to hold the Italian people down by the iron hand of tho soldier, he will not have long to wait for renewed attempts at revolution. Those who know the young man jay ho is sensible and amiable, but somewhat obstinate and easily excited, co the future is dark enough and is not much illuminated, by his first manifesto as soveriegn of Italy. DON'T BELIEVE EARL LI'S LATEST MESSAGE. London, Aug. 7. A Shanghai special dated August 6th, says: "LI Hung Chang has officially Informed tho consuls that the Ministers left Peking for Tientsin last Friday, August 3d, with General Yung Lu in command of the escort. The Consuls are by no means disposed to credit Earl Li's statement All other reports that have reached London up to this hour indicate that the Ministers have not left Peking." DASTARDLY vV ORE OF ROBBERS Kill a Passenger Who Attempts to Defend a Woman. Denver, Col., Aug. 5. Two masked robbers committed one of the worst crimes of the year this side of Hugo, Col., shortly after midnight this morning, when they held up the passengers in two Pullman cars on tho Union train No. 4 and killed William J. Fay, one of Denver's oldest citizens aud now of Anaheim, Cal., because he had the courage to defend a woman in an adjoining berth against the ruffians threats. The money and valuables that the bandits secured were of comparatively little moment in view of the sacrifice of Mr. Fay's life, for the latter leaves a great host of friends in this city, California and other places, to mourn his tragic death. YIGORODS ACTION NEEDED TO SAVE MINISTERS. Washington, Aug. S. The message from Minister Conger brings the Chi nese situation to Its most critical stagu and the authorities in Washington regard the matter as one of great gravity. They are aware that nothing but the most vigorous action can meet tha conditions, save the Ministers and other foreigners In Peking, and avert war of long duration. After a conference of the men in charge of the diplomatic ud military affairs, in which President McKinley participated on the long distance telephone, it was decided to send a message to Consul General Goodnow, repeating the contents of ihe Conger message, and advising him that the situation was serious and a crisis had been reached. He was directed to communicate the fact to LI Hung Chang, to Sheng and other Chinese officials, who -were to transmit it to the Government of China, with a strong representation that the present situation was now and could not be continued without the most serious results. It is that the dispatch was practically an ultimatum, and an early reply was demanded. The answer is during: the day or evening, and it probably will determine the future action of this Government It is now believed by the "War Department officials that the International forces now operating along the Pel can reach Peking in time to rescue the Ministers, if active hostilitlesshould begin against the legationers by the' Imperial troops So serious do thsv officials regard the situation, that It is believed by some there is greater saf ;y for the Ministers and other to accept an escort of the imperial army to Tientsin than ,to remain is Peking if war aaould be declared. Tie lafomatioe rcird throlt ' riiniTtimf.VwfliilliMi'lWiiMMiiillMWtllWliM --- r the Chines nmer regaroins - Wli communication between Uie ,,.. - K jnrt their- rnTm!SB!S is the one ray of hope In the situation. Whether the promises contained In tha edict will be made good ought to be speedily known, and if communication established, the most serfoss consequences may be averted. Although there have been intimations before that such communication would be established, this is the first time that it has appeared in the form of an imperial edict. As a result of this latest communication from the Chinese Government and the message sent to Consul General Goodnow, the United States Government is now in a waiting attitude, hoping for the best, but apprehensive of the gravest possibilities.
