Clven Kvery Attention
Governor Durbin of Indiana has re
plied to the request of the State Depart
ment for information concerning the
treatment of Italian subjects some of
whom were killed and others Injured In
a tecent wreck on the Wabash Railroad
at Cass Ind It was reported to the
Stato Department upon behalf of the
Italian Government that the Injured had
been denied the right of seeing any of
their countrv men and especially the
Italian Consul at Chicago and that no
opportunity had been afforded to Identify
the dead Governor Durhin therefore
has forwarded a report which Dr More
house the surgeon In charge of the hos
pital at Peru Ind where tho Injured
were taken made to President Emory
of the Wabash road This document
tends to refute all the alleged charges
Dr Morehouse savs that the Italians
had every care and that while the person
claiming to be a representative of the
Italian Government sent by the Italian
Consul at Chicago could not produce any
credentials and was recognized as a well
known railroad claims agent he was per
mitted to seo and speak with every in
jured Individual Furthermore Dr
Morehouse sajs tho railroad company
employed an interpreter to see the Injured
Italians and ascertain if they needed any
In his comj lalnt to the State Depart
ment on tho subject tho Italian Charge
dAffalres In Washington said that the
bodies of the eight Italians who were
killed In the wieck vvero hastily burled
before they could be examined or Identi
fied Dr Mon house denies this Ilesajs
that on the contrary a photograpn was
taken of the taco of each corpse and to
make Identification as complete cs pos
sible the names ot some not being known
to certainty each body was numbered
and attached to the photograph was a de
scription of the man with marks of
identilicatlon belongings etc noted
In vitw of these explanations the State
Department Is inclined to regard the ac
cusations against the railroad officials as
entirely unwarranted A copy ot the
communications from Governor Durbin
and Dr Morehouse will lie transmitted to
the Italian Charge dAffalres here

The Special Commissioner to China W
W Rockhill has Informed the State De
partment that the formal turning over
of Pekln to tho Chinese authorities will
probably take place on August 14 Tills
will be Just one jcar after the allies took
possession of the Chinese capital and the
anniversary ot the flight ot the Imperial
Court to Singan fu
Mr Rockhill also announces that the
Indemnity fixed at 45OOV0O0O taels with
Interest at 1 per cent annually until paid
has been formally accepted by tho Pow
ers He confirms tho report that China
had waived her request for preferential
treatment In the payment ot Indemnity
Mr Rockhill says In his despatch that
the diplomatic body at Pekln Is engaged
In considering the Russian proposal for
the eventual increase of the maritime
customs and remarks conservatively
that a solution of the problem Is now
hoped for This statement Is not quite
understood here the word eventual
causlcg confusion In the minds of those
concerned It is supposed however that
Russia has now modified her original
proposition to Increase the maritime cus
toms tariff 10 per cent sj as to provide
that If a 5 per cent Increase favored by
the maritime nations is not sufficient to
enable China to nrfet her indemnity ob
ligations to the Iowcrs there shall be an
increase In the tariff to 10 per cent
Russias oTject In desiring a heavy
Increase Is well understood With no
prospect of an International guaran
tee of the Chinese Indemnity bonds
Russia with the necessity confront
ing her of disposing of her share of
the bonds at a discount desires to have
every assurance that China will not de
fault in pavment Such assurance would
enable Russia to dispose of her bonds at
betttr figures the danger being less that
the purchasers of the bonds would be
obliged to depend on Russia for their re
demption If China should default
Bethlehem and Companies
Promise Increased Orders
Gratlfvlng responses were received yes
terday afternoon by Rear Admiral ONell
Chief of the Naval Bureau of Ordnance
to his letters to the Carnegie Steel Com
pany and the Bethlehem Steel Company
requesting those firms to furnish more
Krupp armor for battleships and armored
cruisers now under construction than was
called for In contracts with the two com
The Navy Department ascertained that
If the armor makers did not make heav
ier deliveries than the contracts required
there would be great delay In finishing
the new armorclads In their letters to
Rear Admiral ONell both companies say
that they believe they will be able to do
all that Is desired by the Navy Depart
ment and are glad to do It They ex
press confidence in their ability to furnish
500 tons each a month Instead of only 200
a month each for the first vear and 300
tons a month each for subsequent years
I It is estimated at the Navy Department
that deliveries at this rate win prevent
any delay in the completion of bittle
shlps and armored cruisers as all the
armor required will be delivered within
three years the contract period for com
pleting the hulls of the vessels
The department Is particularly grati
fied ovr the willingness of the armor
companies to make additional deliveries
as there was some fear that the strike
among the steel workers might affect the
armor plate mills

Snvimelj Rear Admiral
Srlile Stntus of the Author
The third volume ot Maclajs History
of the United States Navy In which
the savage attack is made upon Rear
Admiral Schley Is not to be used as a
text book In tho Naval Academy at
Annapolis This decision has been reached
by Secretary Long who did not read the
book until after his attention was called
to It by the reproduction of the attacks
In the newspapers
The Secretary denies the truth of the
statement attributed to Maclay in which
the latter declares that he submitted the
proofs of the work to the Secretary of the
Navy Maclay who Is on the rolls of the
Navy Department as a labofer In the
Brooklyn Navy Yard Is quoted as having
that he submitted to Secretary Long and
Rear Admiral Sampson the proof ot his
Secictary Long stated yesterday that
he had seen but one chapter of Maclays
book prior to Its publication and Its
adoption as a text book at the Naval
Academy That chapter he asserts was
on tho subject of mobilization and con
stitutes ten pages In Volume HI It quotes
from Secretary Longs recommendation
to the effect that duo credit should be
given to the bureau chiefs This chapter
was read and approved by the Secretary
Other chapters touching upon different
subjects were read in proof by officers of
the navy In Washington but so far as Is
ktown none ot them ever saw the com
plete proofs of the work Secretary Long
declares emphatically that he did not see
the chapter In which Rear Admiral Schley
is attacked
He said jesterday that in response to a
request from the publishers of the work
he had written a letter praising It partic
ularly for tho authors recognition of the
good work done by the jounger officers
of the navy in the vvar and the Incidental
service of officers who had not received
their duo share of praise elsewhere for
their zeal and devotion to dutj
Maclay Is carried on the rolls of the
navy as a laborer and as such receives
compensation at the rate of 225 a day
He Is not under the civil service rules al
though his duties are all clerical During
his leisure hours ho wrote the history pt
the nav which Is now causing much com
ment because of Its Intemperate language
and the violent attack on Rear Admiral
Schley He was formerlj employed as an
editorial writer on the New York Sun
When Admiral Schley was Chairman of
the Lighthouse Board he endeavored to
obtain a position for the historian laborer
but failed but AdmlralSchlejs successor
did succeed in securing a Job for Maclay
When tho attention ot Secretary Long
was called last night to a letter to tho
President from Genj Felix Agnus of Bal
timore charging that the appointment of
tdg ir Stanton Maclaj at the Brooklyn
Navj Yard was evidence of an official
consplracj against Rear Admiral
he said That 13 altogether too ridicu
lous to discuss
Ho declined to say anything further on
that point but did consent to talk about
his knowledge of Mr Maclaj s appoint
ment or rather transfer from the Treas
ury Department which he happened to
rexnemDer ne suio uecause tne auinur s
name had become familiar to him through
reading the carlljr volumes of his naval
I first learrito of Mr Maclays connec

an Application front Mm through the
Secretary of tho Treasury for a transfer

was given to Mr Maclaj s request He
was givett -a position as special laborer
at I have been told 2 24 a day I re

acted upon It I connected him with the

Col Dick PlniiKett Tulks of the
Tract to Be Opened Up
Col Dick Plunkett resiling in Okla
homa but who claims the whole
wide West as his home expects to leave
Washington tonight to be present at the
opening of the Oklahoma lands Colonel
Plunkett sajs he has been hospitably
treated during his stay In the Eabt but
he Is beginning to long for the broad
vistas and fresh air of his native heath
He Is much interested in the new
lands which will be opened up to settlers
on August C
In addition to the new tract contain
ing v aluablc farming land he said last
night there are some of the most valua
ble mineral deposits In the country to be
found in the Wichita Mountains Gold
and silver and copper arc known to
abound there and now- that the opposi
tion of the Indians is removed I expect
it to bo the stamping ground of pros
pectors for j tars to- come
I am glad to see that ts Governor
Richards of Wjoming Assistant Com
missioner of the I and Ofllce is to be
in charge of the drawing of lets This
Iotterj business Is a new proposition and
If It should not prove successful there
would be a flood of complains Ex-Governor
Richard Is a Western man and
the settlers knw this and feel that he
will look out fer their intertsts and give
equal Justice to all He has familiarized
hinnelf with the location of the tract
to be opened up and I feet that Sec
retary Hitchcock could have made no
wiser selection
General Debility
Day In and out there Is that feeling ot
weakness that makes a burden ot Itself
Food eloco not strengthen
Sleep does not refresh
It Is hard to do hard to bear what
should be easy v Itality is on the ebb and
the whole sysem suffers
For this condition take
Hoods Sarsaparilla
It vitalizes the blood gives visor nnd tone
to all the organs and functions and is
positively unequalled tor all run down or
debilitated conditions
