BERLIN Sept 2 rrlnce Chun ana the
fifty Chinch ofllclals attached to his mis
sion started from Basle for this city by
a special imperial train at about 11 oclock
this evening The mission is expected to
remain a fortnight
The Ostaslatlschc Corrcspondcnz
which is published here states that Em
peror William of his own Initiative hid
Prince Chun informed that he would be
pleased to receive him at Potsdam ac
companied onlj by an interpreter Prince
Chun replied thanking his Majest for re
moving the difficulties of his position in
eo gracious a manner
This is one of many versions of how
the arrangement was achieved Another
story ascribes to Chancellor -von Buclow
the success of unraveling by diplomacy
the knot which Emperor William had im
periously tied when In a mailed list
mood by demanding humiliating formali
ties
It is added that the chief opposition to
the Emperors demand came from YIng
Chang the Chinese Minister elect to Ger

prostrate himself before the Emperor In
8smuchas a Minister who did would for
feit the right to be treated as an equal
by his diplomatic colleagues
It is announced that the mission has

the Governments of the United States
Great Britain ltal Belgium and Japan

as he Is of rojal blood The dlffculty
arose from the German demand that the
members of the princes mission should
perform acts of obcisxice to ihtivv that
they recognized Emperor William as be
ing of equal rank with the Emperor of
China Prince Chun is required to ex
press the Chinese Courts sincere regret
lor the murder of Baron on Ketteler

half an hour or more stopping the men
going Into the mill None of the tube

Even the machinists and repair gangs
who vvorhetl all last week without molesta
tion were halted this morning and notified
that their entranee to the mills would

sure to get the worst of It Not more than
a couple of dozen men got into the mill
und these got into the mill at other places
The several hundred other men returned
Co their homes and today the great mill

will furnish the basis for one of the
counts in the indictment

plant within a couple of days The exact

the meetings of the lodges of this part of
the Ohio Valley on Sunday letters were
read and discussed bearing on a settle
ment What these letters contained none
of the leaders will say but Vice President
Larkcns of the Second district said to

One distrit leader has intimated that
if matters Jtrogrcss In the channels they

ACCUSED OF BAD FAITH
Mitchell Charicea the Companies
Witli Hrenklnic Contracts
SCBANTON Pa Sept 2 In address
ing the united labor organizations at Lake
Lodore today John Mitchell president or
the United Mine Workers made some
pointed statements Among other tilings
he said
The metropolitan papers have sent rep
resentatives to see whether I would say
an thing on the steel strike and they have
taken occasion to commend a recently
published article on the validity of con
tracts The United Mine Workers who
are Ihe strongest single band of organiz
ed labor In the world Ejand today as al
was In favor of the Ftilct observance of
contracts It is said that the steel work
ers hav e v iolated their contracts 1 am
not authorized by President Shaffer to
speak for the organization but I believe
that the steel workers had slmpl a
choice between a strike nnd Ignominy
Mr Mitchell said thai Jit the non union
mills men received 25 per cent less than
at the union mills and Uhen went on
The steel strike Is m own and that of
ever man who toils Much depends on
this strike for the same men who own
the steel mills control ttie anthracite coal
and if the steel workers should be de
feated the capitalists would turn their
guns on us next If tner is anything that
you can do which will contribute toward
the success of the strikeifis Our solemn
duty to do It
After stating that the -United Mine
Workers are as a rule opposed to strikes
Mr Mitchell added
But where the employers refuse to
meet their men and discharge commit
tees who wait on them then there may
be cause for a strike and if we strike wo
will strike as we did last ear all to
gether and to stay out until we win
The agreement that womade with the
companies last April has been kept In
violate by us but has been broken time
and again by the companies If they
break It what claim Is there on us to keep
it I do not want to convey the Impres
sion that wc arc going to strike agtln
but the contract must be kept or we are
not going to work
Mr Mitchell then went on to speak
stiongl against the Incorporation of la
bor unions He said it is a device of the
corporations to get the labor orginiza
tions Into court The violation of a con
tract by one member iwould if incorpo
rated make the entire union liable he
concluded

NEW YORK Sept 2 Francls B Loo
mls who was formcrlr United States
Minister to Venezuela arrived today on
the steamship Vaderland from Lisbon
Portugal which Is now his official post
On his arrival nt the Grand Hotel he
found several letters from friends and
business men in Caracas Some of them
had been written as recently as ten days
ago and one spoke of the great unrest of
the people of Venezuela over the possi
ble conflict with Colombia When asked
if Jie had nn thing to say concerning the
trouble between the two South American
Republics Mr Loomis replied
I left Venezuela last April so I am
really not prepared to talk about this
matter Of course of one thing ou may
be certain and that is that our Govern
menUls thoroughly informed upon the
situation and that our interests will not
suffer from a lack of care on its part
Speaking of the two Republics gen
erally Mr Loomis said he did not think
either could well afford to go to war now
on account of their poor financial condi
tion
Passengers who arrived today from
Cartagena Colombia on the steamer Al
tai expressed the belief that the Govern
ment of Colombia will before long get it
self into trouble with the United States
for persecuting the acting Consul at that
port A few weeks ago Mr Ingersoll the
Consul left Cartagena on a leave of ab
sence placing a Colombian in charge of
the office He was1 warned
not to take this step as the man In
question is a pronounced Liberal
The Colombian authorities now profess
to be greatly Incensed at what they be
lieve to be a deliberate affront and they
refuse to recognize the Colombian as
United States Consul
An American who was a passenger on
tho Altai had returned Just before sail
ing from the Interior of Colombia where
he has large Interests He said
I came down to the coast by way of
the Slnu RIvcrr and the Rebels seemed
to bo ever where The Governments
greatest concern s the return of General
Uribc Uribc to Colombia I heard from a
good source that he haeJ2000 men In his
command Tho Government troops are
themselves In a state bordering on rebel
lion It appears to me that the Conserva
tives are doomed this time
That the Colombian officials are alarmed
over th situation is evident from the
strict rules which have been adopted at
Cartagena and other ports regarding the
arrival and departure of passengers
Ever one departing from Cartagena is
thoroughly searched before boarding the
steamer as are those who arrive Letters
are opened Indiscriminately
Luther T Ellsworth United States Con
sul at Puerto Cabello Venezuela nnd
George MacDonald who Is interested in
the asphalt deposits at Maracalbo were
passengers on the steamer Philadelphia
In today from La Guara Both denied
the existence of a revolution in Venezuela
and also did not think much of the waf
talk between Venezuela and Colombia

duties to do In the face of other nations
All that we can do is to settle whether we
shall perform these duties well or 111
Right here let mo make as vigorous a
plea as I know how in favor of saving
nothing that we do not mean and of act
ing without hesitation up to whatever
we say in private life there are few be
ings more obnoxious than the man who
is Rlwas loudly1 boasting and If the
boaster Is not prepared to back up his
words his position becomes absolutely
contemptible
So It Is with the nation It is both fool
ish and undignified to indulge in undue
self glorification and above all in loose
tongued denunciation of other peoples
Whenever on any point we come in
contact with a foreign Power I hope that
wc shallplwas strive to speak courteous
1 and respectfully of that foreign Power
Let us make it evident that we intend to
do Justice
Then let us make It equally evident
that we will not tolerate Injustice being
done to us In return Let us further make
It evident that we use no words which we
are not prepared to back up with deeds
and that while our speech is alwas mod
erate we are ready and willing to make
It good Such an attitude will be the
surest possible guarantee of that self
respecting peace the attainment of which
Is and must ever be the prime aim of
self governing people
lllis is the attitude we should take as
regards the Monroe Doctrine There Is
rot the least need of blustering about It
Still less should It be used as a pretext
for our own aggrandizement at the ex
pense of any other American State But
most emphatically we must make it evi
dent that we Intend on this point ever to
maintain the old American position In
deed It is hard to understand how any
man can take ny other jwsitton now
that we are all looking forward to the
building the Isthmian canal
The Monroe Doctrine Is not Interna
tional law but there Is no necessity that
It should be All that Is needful is tint it
should continue to be a cardinal feature
of American policy on this continent and
the Spanish American States should In
their own interests champion It as
strongl as we do Commercially as far
as this doctrine Is concerned all we wish
Is 11 fair field and no favor but If we nro
wise we shall strenuously Insist that un
der no pretext whitsoever shall there be
an territorial aggrandizement 01 Amcri
ean soil by any European Power and this
no mutter what form the territorial ag
grnndiztment may take

for Adtcrtlslwr Purposes
NEW YORK Sept 2 Mrs Carrie Nn
tlon appeared early at Police Headquar
ters today for the purpose of Interviewing
Deputy Chief Devery The cx chief waa
evidently warned for he did not puMn an
appearance This attempt at sensational
ism falling Mrs Natlcn gave New York
a tame sample of her saloon smashing
tactics by arrangement with a saloon
keeper who also wanted a free advertise
ment
In the course of this raid three or four
glasses were broken while the police
looked on amused and did not interfere
The appearance or Mrs Nation was the
signal for a crowd to gather in the office
of her guide The lecturer said she had
been treated well here with one excep
tion She had entered one saloon this
morning with the purpose of warning the
Inmates against the devil she said and
had been ejected by two policemen As
the crowd gathered about her there were
calls for a speech with the result that
the old homily against smoking was re
peated
Does smoking make a man unfit for
holding public office she wes asked
Yes she replied
What do ou think of President Mc
Klnley whose frequent use of tobacco Is
well known Oh McKlnloys no good
was the lecturers reply
Why dont jou show us how ou
smash saloons put in a reporter of a
yellow Journal who was afraid of falling
thhlnd Mrs Nation retorted Will yuu
stand back of mo nnd pav my fine if I
do No offer being made she contin
ued Thats Just the way it was out
home
A happy thought occurred to the guide
Just then he ran to a nearby saloon and
after a confidential chat with the barten
der returned nnd assured Mrs Nation
that he had found a Joint that she
could smash without fear of conse
quences as the owners were willing to
have a few cheap glasses broken for an
advertsement but she must not go into
th business wholesale
Led by her press agent and followed by
aerowd of at least 2o0 persons Mrs Na
tion proudly marched to the nearest
loon There one of the bartenders oblig
ingly placed on the bar three beer glasses
which customers had Just emptied
Sweeping the glassware to the floor Mrs
Nation waved her arm wildly and shout
ed Give me some more this Is the dev
ils work and Im going to stop it
As the damasre was slicht the barten
der generously put out another glass with
tne polite invitation tnat nation
have a drink on the house This glass
was promptly sent to Join the others in
fragments on the floor and Mrs Nation
left in triumph
At last accounts the old woman from
Kansas was advancing on Coney Island
uttering direful things

YACHTS UNABLE TO FINISH
The Columbia Once More Demon
strates Jlcr Superiority
She Lends the Constitution lr
Third of a Mile When the Time
Limit Expires Pinky Wind
Prcnlls ThrnuRtont the llnce
NEWPORT R I Sept 2 For Hve hours
and a half today the Constitution and
Columbia sailed trying to cover a course
thirty miles In length They had succeed
ed In getting within two miles and a half
of tho finishing line when the time limit
expired and they were towed In trial
was an unsatisfactory one from nil points
of view The wind waa so light that at
times the yachts hardly had teerago
way The Columbia again showed that
she Is a better boat than the new jacht
This too was demonstrated In weather
tha has always shown the Constitution
at her best
The course was triangular ten miles to
a leg The first leg was laid to windward
and the wind was not stronger than five
knots an hour at tho start On the first
leg it hauled a couple of points and then
backed to its original quarter At one
ilrne It got up to about a seven knot
strength but then it died away again
and when the second mark was reached
there was a Paddys hurricane and
there was not n ripple pn the waler
The boats had an even start with the
Constitution In the windward position It
was expected that she would at once
show some of her original form and draw
away from the Columbia but she did not
She pointed fully as high as the Columbia
but that boat lifted out to windward with
every puff and after two minutes sailing
the Constitution took the port tack and
the Columbia a few seconds later followed
and had taken the weather position from
the Constitu lon
They held the port tack for twenty three
minutes and the wind hauled more to tha
south giving the Columbia a slisht lift
For some time the wind was very fluky
The Columbia gained all the time and at
the windward mark she was leading by
four minutes fffty flve seconds They
started on the second leg with big jib
topsails to reach the ten mile stake but
when half the leg had been sailed the
wind backed enough to enable them to
carry balloon Jib topsails On this leg the
Constitution made a gain of twenty five
seconds
At the second mark the Columbia after
gybing set a solnnaker to port it wan 1
gued well forward and It did not draw
at alL Captain Rhodes profited by this
and although the Constitutions spin
naker pole was lowered the big sail was
not- used The Constitution luffed out to
windward of the Columbia and was slow-
ly picking her up Then the Columbias
spinnaker was lowered and with hardly
any wind but with a favoring tide the
two drifted toward the lightship
The Constitution Improved her position
and at 5CS oclock she passed the Colum
bia and drew ahead until she led by about
a quarter of a mile There seemed ery
little prospect of the racers finishing
within the time limit but shortly after t
oclock the wind freshened and the Co
lumbia soon drew up on the Constitution
and she was again the leading boat at
620 oclock The wind had come too late
and when thetiroe limit expired at 630
the Columbia was leading by
aboui thinl of a mile and she was two
ana one half miles from the finishing line
The two achts were towed in and It
was dark when thev reached their moor
ings

MORE SHIPPING FACILITIES
The Vanderbllts Making Efforts
to
Maintain Yew Yorks Tonnage
NEW YORK Sept 2 Contracts let for
piers marine repair shops and a new
ferryhouse and slip at Weehawken N J
call attention to the great Improvements
now being made by the New York Central
and Hudson River Railroad on its prop
erty along the west side of the -North
River These improvements represent an
expenditure of more than 3000tfo and
will be complctd within two jears
The outlay by the Vanderbllt interests
is a result of theletermlned efforts which
are being made by Baltimore iuufalo
Newport News and Norfolk to compete
and if possible control foreign shipments
of this country along the Atlantic coast
The enormous tonnage which Is being
shipped from these ports was once in
cluded in the shipping tonnage of New
York and it will explain In large part the
determination of the roads here to make
every effort so that the metropolis shall
hold its position as the greatest shipping
port in this country
For this reason the New York Central
has determined to constructssuch terminal
facilities that New York will not only
hold Its Immense tonnage for foreign im
port but will greatly increase it
