INDIANAPOLIS March 10 The con
dition of ex Prcsldent Hnrrison is worse
tonight tnan It was jestcrday and the
tendencies toward pneumonia hae not
only become stronger but hae so far de-
eloped that the npex of the left lung is
solidified or as the attending physician
states it hepatlzed
While Dr Jameson Is not discounted
by Mr Harrisons condition he feels that
a crisis is near and that the conditions
now apparent warrant alarm He asked
today that another phjslclan might be
called for consultation and Dr Evans
Hadley a specialist in lung troubles was
called and an hours consultation was
held at which Mr Harrison was thor
oughly examined
This examination lid to the ellscovery
that his left lung is alreadv affected and
that great danger is threatening him
from the extension of the congestion Dr
Jameson said tonight that an effort is
how being made to stop the extension of
hepatization of the lung and if this could
be done he would feel greitl encouraged
but when congestion begins he said it is
rare that it does not extend to all parts
of the affected lung and unless the
present case proed exceptional this
would biing about ery dangerous condi
In respect to the generals condition to
day as compared with jesterday he said
General Harrison gained up to the
middle of the afternoon but is worse to
night not critically worse but worse
than he was at 3 oclock thl afternoon
His respiration Increased from thirty
to thirty six per minute his pulse from
ninety to ninety eight and his tempera
ture from ICC to 102 3 4 I regard the lat
ter taken In connection with the other
symptoms as very unfaorable
When questioned with reference to the
possible developments he was disinclined
to discuss them saving only that it was
unnecessary to enter the icaltns of con
jecture as the present conditions were
all that could be known except those
which they might reasonably lead to In
the near future
He admitted that any marked Increase
of Inflammation of the left lung would be
an exceedingly discouraging feature and
upon closer questioning confessed that
an increase under present conditions
was more probable than a decrease
Considering his age however the doctor
said that Mr Harrison was holding up
well and this was alwas favorable in
such cases His mind is perfectly
clear and while hee has a correct
appreciation of the gravity of his
case he is not discouraged and sub
mits to ail treatments with cheerfulness
and with a readiness which indicates a de
sire to assist the- ph slcian as nuch as
On the other hand Mrs Harrison is
nervous and exceedingly anxious As far
as possible she Is being encouraged by
Mr Harrison and by the attending phy
sician and she was very much gratilled
at the encouragement which she received
after the consultation between Dr Jame
son and Dr Hadley this evening
It may be said that Mr Harrison is In
a really dangerous state His death can
not occur suddenly for his disease does
not presage a sudden demise and there
is no reason to believe that It will prove
exceptional in his case
fchoMd It reach the fatal stage It will
probaM be attended by delirium follow
ed by loss of consciousness the gradual
sinking into a comatose state from which
death results
The members of the family who arc
absent are kept informed of the generals
condition from day to day and It Is
understood that they are holding them
telvcs In readiness to come at any time in
answer to a summons to his bedside

the people had been longing for an ex

the Government regulations Their de

interference by the authorities a large
crowd witnessed an exhibition calculated
to satisfy the most callous and blood
The bulls tortured were splendid rrea
tures and fought gamely One tossed a
Spanish matador named Robert who
however was little hurt Another mata
dor was badly gored Three horses
wretched blindfolded starvelings were
disemboweled Two of the bulls Jumped
the barrier causing a panic among tho
onlookers but apparently nobody was
Finally Robert after a dramatic appeal
to the crowd which yelled crazlly for the
blood of the bulls stabbed one of them
while the throng looked on holding their
breath and gloating In silence until the
creature fell They then bellowed their
applause the women showering flowers
and the men coins upon the matadors

PEKIN March 10 In the presence of
the soldiers of four nations and repre
sentative civilians the bodies of the sol
diers who were killed during the siege
were removed esterday from the grounds
of the British legation and burled with
military honors
LI Hung Chang has had a lone hand In
the negotiation of the treaty with Russia
regarding Manchuria He admits that it
will be hard for China to accept two of
the articles of the convention referring
to those providing for a Russian military
occupation of the province and the ces
sion of all mining rights
LI is very secretive even with his
closest friends regarding the text of the
treaty He is charged with showing a
dangerous partiality for Russia The ac
quiescence of China is regarded as a fore
gone conclusion The Ministers share in
the gloom of the situation and are pre
paring for a long occupation of Manchu
ria by Russia
General Van Gul President of the In
ternational commission administering the
affairs of Pekln recently learned from
certain Chinese that many Boxer leaders
had returned to the capital Ho favors
a plan to employ reliable Chinese a spies
with permits to make arrests He wrote
to the commanders of the various con
tingents stating that he would issue such
General Gaselee the British commander
and General Chaffee replied objecting to
this they holding that It would open the
door for blackmail
The Italian com
mander consented
It is certain that thousands of Boxers
are now in the city but it would be a
hard task to determine whoof them were
active participants in the massacres and
plundering and to pick out the officials
who countenanced the Boxer movement
Unless further lists are secured from the
Boxer headquarters it Is
generally con
ceded that It will be almost impossible
to arrest the actual leaders
Some davs ago an edict was Issued
under foreign pressure restoring their
nonors to Hsu Chlng Cheng Yuen Chang
Hsu Yung Yi Lien Yuen nnd LI San
who were beheaded here In July and Aug
ust The first three were Chinese the
next a Manchu and the last a Mongol
The first four were capable progressive
ministers of the
Tho edict callously ttates that they suf
fered death because of thtlr blowing hot
and cold It is understood that they
were the only men nt a full meeting of
high officials last June who denounced
the Boxers nnd the attacking of the le
gations It is said that the Ministers will
demand that a better edict be issued jut
1 honoring these men Even Russia Is
lnuignant over the wording of the edict
Tills Is probably due to the fact that Hsu
Chlng Cheng was director of the Rus
sian bank and of the Manchurlan Rail
way and received a salary from Russia

The conference between the California

General Wyman of the Marine Hospital
Service Saturday relative to the bubonic
pligue situation in San Francisco has re
sulted in a definite plan of procedure The
clash between the State authorities and
the Federal Government has virtually
been settled and Secretary Gage Insists
that Surgeon General White of the Ma
rine Hospital Service who is now In San
Francisco shall have charge of the meas
ures taken to stamp out the plague
The Federal authorities believe that
for the present at least a rigid individ
ual Isolation of the plague cases In China
town will be sulllclent to deal with the sit
uation adequately Neither the State nor
the whole city will be quaiantlned unless
conditions change for the worse Some
members of the California Commission
expressed the belief again vesterday that
the dreaded disease does not exist In San
Francisco One of them said he thought
the report recently returned by the Treas
urys commission of experts did not con

plague exists in California There is high
authority In tho Treasury Department
however for the statemnt that the re
port of the several experts did contain
the declaration
It was further stated in the report that
six deaths had already occurred from
the disease in the Chinese quarter of San
Francisco and that several cases exist
there now Besides these statements of
fact the report contains a mass of mat

IIAS2LETON Pa March 10 Contrary
to expectations President Mitchell of the
United Mine V orkers did not come here
today It was stated at headquarters this
evening that he would not arrive until to
morrow evening and possibly not until
Tuesday morning Why his coming has
been delayed the officials of the union
professed not to know
It is suspected however that the action
taken by the coal companies toward con
tinuing the present wage scale In advance
of such a demanel being made upon them
has had something to do with Mr
Mitchells delay In coming here
This checkmate move on the part of the
companies seems to have taken the labor
lenders compltti ly by surprise They had
contemplated making the demand for a
continuance of the wage scale the prin
cipal object of the convention When the
suggestion was made to Benjamin James
a member of the National Executive
Board of United Mine Workers that this
move of the companies rather took the
wlrd out of the sails of the convention
he said this was not the case as the con
vention had many other things to con
He declined to answer the question
whether or not the convention would
make a demand for an Increase of wages
beond that of the present wage scale
and also what ellect the probable non
appearance of the operators at the de
sired Joint convention would have upon
the questions at Issue
Very few of the delegates have so far
reached here but those who have arrived
sem Inclined to think that the agreement
of the companies to continue the present
wage scale will satisfy tho men They
care very little whether the operators
come to tho convention or not and think
that there certainly will be no strike
Minor grievances they believe could
easil be adjusted at the respective col
lieries where they exist especially as
both the men and the operators are eager
to continue working
Hundreels of delegates will be here to
morrow and not far from a thousand are
exoected to attend the convention

Mr Mitchell was asked by a reporter
what effect the notice posted by the mine
owners on Saturday of a continuation of
the 10 per cent advance would have upon
the deliberations of the Hazleton conven
That Is a matter for the convention
to decide nnd I cannot discuss It he an
swered I will say however that it
seems to me that the willingness of the
operators to continue the present scale
shows a friendly feeling on their part
but I cannot tell how the convention will
regard It We have a number of griev
ances to consider and I only hope that
they will be met by the coal operators in
the same pleasant manner

to work on the sugar plantations there
passed through New Orleans today 551
strong The men who are handling this
movement and have undertaken to take
lOW Porto Ricans to Hawaii report that
the local press Is strongly antagonizing
the movement and endeavoring to excite
the people against It
The local paper at Caguas declared thit
the Porto Rlran emigrants taken to
Hawaii are either sold into slavery or
kile 1 and that It Is the purpose of the
Americans to remove all the nativerTfd
settle Porto Rico with Chinese The de
nunciation of the papers has rendered It
more difficult to secure emigrants and it
will take some time to overcome the feel
The Porto Rican emigration business is
reaching out to other points An Engish
tramp ship landed at Ponce and took on
board five hundred peonle who wore to gj
to Cuba and work on the Cuban planta
tions The customs authorities at Ponce
however Interfered as the steamer was a
freighter and tne emigrants were com
pelled to come ashore The affair how
ever has caused a great deal of excite
ment among the natives who threatened
to mob the English vessel There vas
another emigrant vessel at Ponce taking
on board a large party of natives who
proposed to emigrate to Ecuador
It wis the sentiment of all the Ameri
cans on the California the vessel which
brought the Porto Rlcans to New Orleans
that this emigration movement oppose
bv many of the natives was beneficial as
the Island was congested as to popula
