NO CHANGE IN THE SITUATION.

Washington, Sept. 4. Minister Con
ger ha3 been heard from again, h
last advice being dated at Peking
Aug. 30. Preceding dispatches occu
pied a week In their transmission
tfrom Peking, aooording to the esti
mate of the state department, so that
Mr. Conger's message marks a dis
tinct betterment of the means of com
munication. Besides it includes the
date of dispatch, something the de
partment ihas been trying to have done
for many weeks. The supposition is
that, this particular message came
down from Peking to Tien Tsln by
courier, and was put on the wires,
either at that point or at Taku. The
state department decided to make no
statement as to the contents of the
message beyond that Mr. Conger's
communication did not mark any ma
terial change In situation in Peking.
It appears that whatever responses
are to be made by the powers to the
proposition to evacuate Peking are
expected to be diocted to the gov
ernment of Russia and not to our
state department. The Russian gov
ernment undoubtedly will in turn no
tify the United States government a3
well as all the other governments con
cerned as to the nature of the re
sponses. It Is stated that up to this time less
than a majority of the powers inter
ested in the Chinese question have re
sponded to the Russian proposal, so
far as our government is advised, and
our officials here agree with the gen
eral tenor of the European dispatches
in the conclusion that final action on
part of all the pawer3 may not be had
for several days at least Everything
now depends on the action of Russia,
tine attitude of the other nations be
ing negative, and if she does not hast
en to carry out her announced purpose
to withdraw the troops the other gov
ernments will probably be content in
the hope that some kind of a Chinese
government will be established in Pe
king wlh which the powers, may ne
gotiate for a final settlement
LI Hung Chang'3 attempt to secure
Imperial warrant for the institution
of peace negotiations through himself
and the Chinese notables referred to
in the European dispatches, is regard
eu here as a step in the right direction,
while on the other hand some disquiet
has been caused by the report that the
International forces in Peking have
been arresting some of the membors
of the'Tsung Li Yamen who were seek
ing to open negotiations and re-establish
the government. There is no dis
position here to condone the offenses
of any Chinese officials who may have
(participated in the outrages in Peking
but it is questioned whether this is an
opportune time to administer punish
ment. The war department is still con
cerned because of the Inability to
either reach General Chaffee or get
dispatches from him. A number of
important dispatches have been sent
which the government Is anxious he
should receive in regard to 'his future
action. General Barry, who oan be
(reached at Taku, has been instructed
to spare no pains or expense to get
dispatches to Chaffee and replies from
him, which the department feels are
necessary for a correct disposition of
ithe Chinese questions that have arisen
sinco the occupation of Peking.
. DEARTH OF KKIVS,
Commissioners Appointed to Nego.
tlato For Pence.
London, Sept. 4. The absence of
news regarding the actual situatfon of
affalrsat Peking continues as complete
as the lack of authentic Information
regarding the ultimate attitudo of the
powers toward the proposals now be
fore the ooncert.
Shanghai 'reports that an imporial
edict issued at Tal Yuan Fu appoints
LI Hung Chang, Yung Lu, Hsu Tung
(tutor of the heir-apparent) and
Prince Ohlng commissioners to nfcgo
The unmistakable condemnation of
the proposal to immediately withdraw
from Peking which Is voiced from all
the foreign colonies In the far east is
taken In some quarters as a forecast
of the opinion which may be expected
from thd ministers when their vlow3
are obtainable. As already suggested,
the Russian proposals are capable of
modification, and It is thought In well
informed circles that Lord SAlIsbury
is striving to conform them moro
closely to the terms first formulated
by tlhe government at Washington.
According to a special dispatch from
St Petersburg, dealing with the ques
tion of Manchuria, the Russian of
ficials repudiate any intention to per
manently occupy or annex Manchuria.
The dispatch adds that Russia will
claim no teiritorlal concessions pio
vlded the other powers refrain from
so doing and expresses the hope tha.t
the question of Indemnities can be
settled by the co-operation of the al

TO CHOOSE A TICKET.
Republicans of the Empire Stite In
ADDRESS BY CHAIRMAN WOODRUFF.
Only Chance For an Argument Is the
Trust I'lanlc Of the l'lml'oi in.
Candidates iur Nomination
Have No Opposition.
Saratoga, N. Y., Sept. 4. The Re
publican convention wnioh is to nomi
nate a full state ticket was called to
order soon after noon by State Ohalr
man O'Dcll, who 13 to be nominated
for governor. Lieutenant Governor
Woodruff, Tho Is to be renominated,
was choosen temporary chairman by
Mr. Woodruff In opening said the
Republican party Is the giant instru
ment for the attainment and mainten
ance of high political ideal3. The Re
publican party is more tnan the in
strument of Republicans, said the
speaker, "it Is the ever-renewing hope
of others. Since the Democracy of
Seymour, Tllden and Cleveland be
came the prey of Populistlc fanati
cism, and vagaries of dreamers sup
planted the doctrines of statesmen,
tne Republican party has become tho
home of many thii3 driven from the
household of their ancient faith. They
don't look for us to renounce Repub
licanism. They don't ask us to be
come Democrats. Nor do we Insist
that they shall became Republicans.
Either a3 allies or Republicans we
welcome them for the country's good.
The people of this state believe In
honest money; they believe in the pro
tection of American industry and la
bor; they believe in the establishment
of the Independence of Cuba, a sound
government in Porto Rico and the
Philippines and the protection of our
peeple in China. They believe in the
suppression of unlawful combinations
of every character."
Referring to the money question,
Mr. Woodruff said that should Mr.
Bryan be elooted It would be within
'his power and duty in view of his
platform to pay the Interest and prin
cipal of the bonded debt In silver. The
speaker declared that free trade had
always been the fundamental princi
ple of Democracy.
"Tho attempted subordination of
sound money and protection," 'he con
tinued, "to the paramouncy of so
called 'imperialism' cannot retire these
issues from the campaign. The ab
surdity qf 'imperialism' is that there
is no 'Imperialism.' The Republican
party simply stands for the establish
ment In ine Philippines and Porto
Rica of such government a3 it gives
to its own people. If that is Imperial
ism then the Republican party is Im
perialistic. Our opponents may call It
imperialism or even piracy If they
please, but the Republican party will
not be swerved from the line of its
duty nor will tho people bo fooled by
such transparent advice. Tho man
who denounces our work of rescue,
and the establishment of a just and
generous government in which the In
habitants shall have the largest par
ticipation of which they are capable,
and undertakes to base that denuncia
tion upon a phrase of our Declaration
of Independence is an insincere and
base perverter of that Immortal docu
ment" Mr. Woodruff denounced tho atti
tude of the Democratic party on trusts
as hypocritical, praised tho Republi
can state administration and closed
with an eulogy of the national Repub
lican ticket. .
Mr. Woodruff arraigned the officials
of New York city for their alleged
connection with the Ice trust Refer
ences to McKlnley and Roosevelt were
greeted with loud appluiise.
Tho usual resolutions for permanent
organization, etc., wore adopteI and a
recess was voted until 4 pm.
A telegram was received from Form
er Governor Frank S. Black saying
t&at ho would make the speech nomi
nating O'Dell for governor. Thl3
makes the list of orators for Wednes
day's session of the convention in
clude Theodoro Roosevelt, Ohauncoy
M. Dopew, Frank S. Black and N.
The only discussion before tho con
vention met was over the tni3t plank
of the platform, and It was thought
tne party declaration on this point
might give the committee on resolu
tions some work to do.

Ills Way to Cumberland.
RECPTIONS ON REAR PLATFORM.
Kemlnlsccncc of a Former Visit nt
Zanesvllle I'lopouuds Ques
tion to iio I'ut to Ke
publlcnus This Year.
Cambridge O., Sept. 4. Mr. Bryan
found a crowd of poople awaiting him
when he arrived at Zanesvllle eaTly In
the morning. The train carrying him
to his destination in Cumberland, Md.,
made a five minute stop at that point
and tho engine had hardly come to a
standstill when there were loud calls
for the presidential candidate. In re
sponse to these demands Mr. Bryan
appeared on the rear platform of the
sleeper. Calls for a speech alternated
with the demands to shake hands. Mr.
Bryan declared laughingly that he
could net comply with both requests,
but he camo near doing so, for ho
grasped a large number of outstretch
ed hands, and while in the process of
doing so, proceeded to make a brief
talk to the people who stood eagerly
waiting. The speech was informal and
partly reminiscent, but judging by the
applause it was greatly enjoyed. He
said In part:
"In a moment I cannot enter upon
the discussion of any question. All I
can do is to gratify any curiosity you
may have in hearing a word, but you
ought to have no curiosity here for I
remember being here during the cam
paign of 1S9C after midnight I re
member that you have an auditorium
called Gold hall, and It was so crowd
ed on that occasion that I had to
climb up tlio fire escape to get into the
'hall. (Laughter and applause.) We
rare in the midst of another campaign
and you are to have your part in the
settlement of the questions whijh are
at issue. In every campaign several
Issues are considered but some one of '
them must be the paramount in the
mind of eaoh person. In this cam
paign, the Democratic partv believes
the question of Imperial!, j be most
important. The party stands where it
did in 189G on the money question,
but it believes that the form of gov
ernment Is more important than the
kind of money and imperialism attacks
tihe principles of government. In say
ing this we are not indulging in pro
phesy. The Porto Rican bill asserts
the doctrine that the Porto Ricans are
beyond the protection of the constitu
tion. Never until within a year has
any party asserted the doctrine that
the flag could be carried to places
where the constitution could not gj."
At Cambridge Mr. Bryan also spoke
to a good crowd. He suggested a num
ber of questions to lie put to Republi
cans during the campaign.
Cameron, W. Va., Sept. 4. At Ben
wood, Mr. Bryan left the regular train
and was taken aboard the special in
which he is to make the tour of this
state. He was mot by a state commit
tee of which National Committeeman
McGraw is chairman. As soon as Mr.
Bryan boardui the special train the
crowd demanded a speech and Mr.
Bryan spoke brlefiy. The stop here
was very short. Mr. McGraw an
nounced Mr. Bryan's speechmaklng
itinerary for the trip as follows: Cum
berland, Md., Tuesday night; Morgans
grove, trl-state meeting for Maryland,
Virginia and West Virginia, Wednes
day at 9:30; Kaiser at 11:30 a. m.
Wednesday, Clarksburg state fair
at 10 a. m. Thursday; Parkers
burg at 3 p. m. Thursday; Wheeling
Thursday night. From Wheeling to
At Cameron, Mr. Bryan discussed the
full dinner pall proposition in re
sponse to a suggestion from the crowd,
saying in part: "The Republican party
Is trying to escape a discussion of its
attack upon tho foundation principles
of government, and when a laboring
man accuses the Republican party of
an attempt to destroy tho Declaration
of Independence, the only answer is
that you have got a full dinner pall,
and while you havo got plenty to eat
you should be satisfied. I want you to
remember, in the first place, that you
can not satisfy a man by giving him
plenty to eat, and, in the second place,
I want you to take the cost of what
you have to buy as a laboring man
and measure it against your wages,
and see If tho trusts havo not raised
the price of what you buy more than
they havo your wages. Tne Repub
lican party has no plan for tho better
ment of the permanent condition ot f
those who toll, but it has permitted ,
the great branches of Industrie to. M, ,
monopolized by a tew."
