LONDON, Dec 17 Dr. Joseph Park
er, pastor of toe City Temple, today
began his experiment of editing the
Evening Sun for a week.
The scheme was suggested by Dr.
Sneldon's editing of the Topeka. (Kan
sas) Capital, but Dr. Parker has stated
that he will make his paper more of
a newspaper than was the Capital
The first number of Dr. Parker's pa
per today contains a column of reli
gious notes, three columns on the Boer
war. and a column of crimes, chiefly
murders. There is no sporting news
The paper advocates buying Denver
mining shares. Under the heading
"Betting and gambling forecasts." the
doctor prints a prayer that gambling
may perish, and says: "If my paper
cannot, during six experimental days
live without pandering to the gambler,
the drunkard, and the sensualist, then
let it wither away."
- The Editor expresses his conviction
that London ought to publish a dis
tinctively religious daily paper, but
fears that such would'not be sustained
even by the religious people themselves
Jle attacks sectarianism and urges flog'
ging as a deterrent to crime.

LONDON, Dec. 17 The Pekin cor
respondent of the Times says that Li
Hung Chang at the instance of Prince
Ukhtomsky. of Russia, who is now in
Pekin, has telegraphed to the czar, ex
pressing China's gratitude to Russia
for being allowed to resume the civil
government of Manchuria.
Like the previous message to Emper
or William, this one to the czar pur
ports to be from Emperor Kwang Su,
who is ignorant of both messages.
The correspondent repeats his charg
es of Russian duplicity, declaring that
Manchuria will henceforth virtually be
a Russian protectorate.

IN WRECK OF A GERMAN
BERLIN. Dec. 17 The loss of the
German school ship Gneisanau off Ma

received by the minister of marine.
The dispatch says forty were drowned.
The press dispatches place the number
i drowned at about one hundred.
MALAGA, Spain, Dec. 17 It is fear
ed the loss of life in the wreck of the
German school ship Gneisanau yester
day will prove much greater than at
first reported. One hundred and nine
ty survivors are being cared for here.
The ship's complement was 461, which

Another pretty little romance was
enacted In El Paso Friday night and
calls for congratulations on one hand
and sympathy on the other.
It was another one of those affairs
where young ladies nave too many
sweethearts and really do not know
which one they love most and finally
decide "first come first serve."
While at school in an eastern city
several years ago a young lady from
a southern city whose name must be
withheld, was given much attention
at the hands of two young men from
neighboring cities. She was pretty
and the two young men were wealthy
and handsome. One lived in Washing
ton and the other in a city near there.
The young lady graduated and return
ed home last year and since then both
of the young men have corresponded
with her regularly and both have
sought her hand in marriage. Each
was encouraged and each thought he
had won. The man from New York
visited the young lady at her home
about a month ago and it is said gain
ed a promise to wed him. The young
lady, however, asked for a vacation be
fore the consummation of the wedding
and came to El Paso to visit an old
Her admirer from Washington knew
nothing of her visit here but knew she
had a friend here who was very dear
to her. Thinking it might not be a
bad" idea to enlist the El Paso young
lady in his behalf he came on here last
Wednesday and to his surprise he
found the girl he loved here with her
friend. He renewed his suit persis
tently, and won. Fearing trouble
from delay he requested that the wed- j
ding be early and in El Paso. The?

When told of the proposition of the

GENERAL FREIGHT AGENT
SHEPARD IS HERE.
Persons arriving here from Parral,
Mexico, yesterday, report a daring at
tempt at robbery near that place which
proved a fatal failure to the bandits.
A prominent man of Parral, whose
name could not be recalled by the pass
engers, was going out to his mine
twenty miles from Parral Thursday to
pay off his employes.
Several hold-ups had been reported
in that vicinity recently and he had
the forethought to guard against los
ing his money in that .way. He had
about three thousand dollars in Mexi
can currency which he tied firmly to
the beam of his wagon, put his pistol
under his coat sleeve, and. started out
Thursday night for the camp.
When he had gone about half way
two Mexicans suddenly halted him and
ordered him to get out of the wagon.
He obeyed of course, and the' bandits
searched his person with no effect-
Knowing he must have some money
they proceeded to search his baggage
and other effects. While they were
at this task the mining man drew his
