I BOXERS ARE DISPERSING Those Surrounding the Legations at Peking Are Moving Away—Further Details of the Recent Bombardment of the City of Tien Tsln. London, July 11.—It has been learned that the British government is making arrangements to send 100,000 troops to China in the autumn. Paris, July 11. —At a cabinet council the minister of foreign affairs, M. Del case, read a telegram from Tokio con firming the news that Japan will send immediately to Taku a complete divi sion of 19,000 men. A dispatch from Che Foo, dated July 7, says the orphanage at Shan Tung has been pillaged. The Chinese minister here has in formed M. Delcase that Li Hung Chang cabled him from Canton that he had just received a telegram from Peking asserting that the soldiers and rebels who surrounded the legations had grad ually dispersed. Bombardment of Tien Tsin. Berlin, July 11. —The German consul at Tien Tsin cables that the foreign set ments were continually bombarded by the Chinese from July sto July 8. On July 6, 2,000 Boxers attacked the French settlement and were routed by the Rus sians. The British and Japanese forces, July 7, bombarded the Chinese batteries. To ward evening Chinese shells penetrated the roof of the German consulate and caused an outbreak of fire, which was extinguished with but little damage. On July 6 the Peo Peng sailed for Taku with the German wounded. River communication with Tien Tsin and Taku has been safe since the Chi nese fort midway between the two towns was captused. The railroad from Tong Ju has been repaired to within 3 miles of Tien Tsin. Nearly all the families of foreigners left Tien Tsin July 4. American Troops Land.

Just learned from Admiral Seymour at Tien Tsin that the foreigners there are hard pressed.” ODELL MAKESJK STATEMENT Alleged Plot to Assassinate President McKinley Is Ridiculed. Newburgh, N. Y., July 11. —Chair- man B. B. Odell of the Republican com mittee said concerning the alleged plot to assassinate President McKinley: ‘ ‘I have read the account in a New York paper with reference to an alleged plot to assassinate the president and also as to the part which I am supposed to have taken in the matter. I have nothing to say upon the subject except that I have made an investigation which I started with the state committee detective on the line of what I supposed to be politi cal information and I discovered either a crank or a ifiron Munchausen, and on the principle that an ounce of preven tion is worth a pound of cure, it is prob able that my report to Secretary Dick is the cause for the extra care now being taken of the president. I have nothing further to say on this subject except that I regret that some one has been indis creet enough to make of a trifling matter the gigantic plot published in the papers. Hanna Says Story Is False. Cleveland, July 11.—Senator Hanna, referring to the report that a plot to as sassinate President McKinley had been discovered in New York, emphatically declared that the story was false. Will Pool Business.' Chicago, July 11. The general freight agents of the leading western roads have formed an arrangement for the pooling of business.

Boston, July 11.—Marsden Berry, of Providence, was appointed temporary receiver of the Massachusetts Real Es tate company by Judge Colt ILLINOIS CENTRAL FAST TRAIN HELD UP Occurred Near Wikcliff at an Early Hour. SECURED ABOUT SIO,OOO Posse In Pursuit With Bloodhounds On the Bandits’ Trail Fireman Knocked Down and Badly Wounded. None of the Passengers Molested. Paducah, Ky., July 11.—The Illinois Central fast train from New Orleans to Chicago was held up and robbed this morning at 1:10 o’clock, 2 miles south of Wickliffe, Ky. The train was flagged and when it stopped the bandits entered the cab. The fireman, J. J. Fryisch, was knocked in the head with the but of a revolver and badly hurt. The robbers, six in number, cut off the engine and express car and ran 1% miles to Fort Jefferson, near the Ohio river, and within sight of the Missouri shore. Here they blew the ex press safe and secured all the valuables it contained. They left the engine and looted car and crossed into Missouri. They dropped one package containing S7OO on the Kentucky side and another package on the Missouri side, both of which were recovered this morning. TLj robbers overpowered the express men and made them get off the train, but did not molest others on the train, which carried a large load of passengers. A special train with bloodhounds and an armed posse has loft division head quarters at Jackson, Tenn., for the scene and it is understood Missouri offi cers are hot on the robbers’ trail. About SIO,OOO was secured in addition to money dropped by the robbers. The robbers left some of their tools, a rifle and four pistols, in their flight. RUN INTO AN OPEN SWITCH. Train With $3,000,000 on Board Wrecked Near Philadelphia. Philadelphia, July 11. —According to officials of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad a deliberate attempt to wreck the Washington express bearing $3,000,- 000 to the subtreasury in New York came near being successful at Folsom, a short distance outside of this city. The train consisted of two sleepers, two day coaches and three baggage cars and left Washington at 11:30 o’clock last night. It was due here at 3:10 o’clock this morning. While going at a good rate of speed, it ran into an open switch at Folsom. The engine was overturned and three baggage cars were derailed, but no one was injured. An examination of the switch by the railroad men disclosed the fact that the switch had been tampered with, for the apparent purpose of wrecking the train. Whether it was done with the intention of wrecking the express bearing the cur rency could only be conjectured. The railroad officials have placed detectives on the case and have offered a reward of SSOO for the arrest and conviction of those tampering with the switch. WILLIAM WALDORF ASTOR His Social Career In London Brought to an Abrubt Close. London, July 11.—William Waldorf Astor’s sudden departure for Germany at the very height of the season, the can celling of all his engagements here and the recall of the invitations which he had issued for house parties on next Sunday and on next Sunday week, at Cliveden, are regarded as signalizing the closing of his social career in Lon don. It is openly declared here that the Prince of Wales, who is the supreme arbiter of English society, has cut him in consequence of his insulting treat ment of Sir Archibald Milne last woek and London is only too ready to take its cue in the matter from its future king, as Mr. Astor, in spite of his wealth and the magnificence of his entertainments, has made many enemies by his numer ous idiosyncrasies and by his extraordin ary arrogance. . DELEGATES ARE ARRIVING. Tenth International Convention of B. Y. P. U. to Meet at Cincinnati. Cincinnati, July 11.—Preparatory to the opening of the tenth international convention of the Baptist Young Peo ple’s union, the local committees, with the help of citizens, have everything in readiness for the reception of the hosts of delegates expected. Some of them have already arrived. A strictly executive session of the ex ecutive committee and the board of man agers was held at the Grand hotel here. The various reports to be presented to the convention were submitted and con sidered and plans for the ensuing year discussed. FISHED OUT OF THE CREEK. Valuable Relic Recovered While Drag ging For a Body. Courtland, Ala., July 11.—The old flint-lock musket which was fished out of Bib Nance creek several days ago while dragging for the body of Mrs. W. C. Swoope has been identified by an old citizen as one of the guns issued to troops stationed in this section in 1830. These guns were of this same pattern and were never taken in by the govern ment. The entire stock and woodwork which extends to the end of the barrel are pet rified. The barrel is bent as if it had been struck against a tree purposely. The relic is a valaed one and elicits con siderable interest. Colombian Revolution. ~ Guayaquil, Ecuador, July 11.—The Colombian revolutionists under Gen erals Juan B. Gonzales and Simon Chaux have captured the city of Po payan, capital of the department of Caucaus. On the march to Popayan the revolutionists took all the cities near the Ecuador center. Three More Bodies Recovered. New York, July 11.—Three more dead bodies have been recovered from the hull of the burned steamship Saale, making 36 found on that vessel. The three bodies were nude and were so dis figured by burns and decomposition that identification was impossible. FOREIGNERS ARE HELD RESPONSIBLE Empress Blames Them For Gravity of Situation. LONDON IS PESSIMISTIC It Is Believed Chinese Officials Are Only Preparing For Alibis When the Troops Reveal the Peking Horror. No Hope Entertained. Washington, July 11.—Wu Ting Fang, the Chinese minister, came to the state department in person and deliver ed to Secretary Hay a copy of a cable gram received by him purporting to be from the Chinese imperial government, believed to have originated at the Chi nese war department, disclaiming re sponsibility on the part of the imperial government for the Boxer troubles, and asserting that the engagement at Tien Tsin was the direct result of the bom bardment of the Taku forts by the for eigners. Shanghai, July 11.—An edict of the empress dowager, promulgated on June 30, has just been published in Shanghai. Her majesty expresses sorrow for the death of Baron Von Ketteler, the Ger man minister, who, she says, went to the tsung li yamen on the day of his death against her wishes. Her majesty expresses regret that the capture of the Taku forts should have complicated matters, but orders that the Boxers be suppressed and the foreign legations in Peking protected. The whole line of the edict is to hold the for eigners blamable for the gravity of the ■ crisis. Two hundred and fifty white refugees from Tien Tsin have arrived in Shang hai. PREPARED FOR THE WOSRT. British Officials Believe the Ministers Have Been Slain. London, July 11.—Although Shanghai repeats the statement that both the em peror and dowager empress are alive and telegrams from Chinese officialdom again testify to the safety of the lega tions, these assertions no longer stimu l ite hope here and pessimism will pre vail as long as the authorities, who, on their own showing, are able to get mes sages to the coast, fail to send confirma tion of the safety of the foreigners from some member of a legation at Peking. London sees in the disappearance and reappearance of prominent people at Peking and the efforts apparently mak ing to shift the blame from one to the other and in the attempts to represent themselves as victims instead of princi pals in the recent occurrences, only pre parations for alibis and excuses in view of the approach of the troops of the pow ers and the tragedy they may discover on reaching the Chinese capital. According to a report from Shanghai the fighting at Tien Tsin July 6 was the heaviest which has yet occurred, the Russians alone burying 200 men. The allies are becoming exhausted by con stant fighting. A dispatch from Canton says Li Hung Chang is keeping excellent order there. Robbers and pirates are executed pub licly and frequently, and the people are cowed and airaid to disturb the peace. Foreigners In No Danger. Berlin, July 11. —The German con sul at Che Foo telegraphs that the gov ernor of Shan Tung announces that ac cording to reports on July 4 the foreign ministers at Peking were out of danger, and the revolt was decreasing. Appointed Minister to China. Berlin, July 11.—Dr. Mumm Von Schwarzenstein, the envoy extraordi nary of Germany to the Grand Duchy of Luxemburg, has been appointed Ger man minister to China in succession to the late Baron Von Ketteler. FORTY DEATHS REPORTED. Mysterious and Fatal Disease Appears In Louisiana. New Orleans, July 11.—President Souchon, of the state board of health, has received a telegram from the parish board of health for Caldwell parish, urging that an expert, a quantity of tents, disinfectants and sanitary inspec tors be sent to that place at once, as a mysterious plague had broken out there which was fatal in every instance. The telegram states that fully 40 people, mostly negroes, had already succumbed to the disease. President Souchon has sent Dr. Beard, the state expert, to the seat of the plague with the necessary supplies. It is believed that the epi demic is a very malignant form of small pox. Work On the New Battleships. Washington, July 11.—According to a statement issued by the bureau of con struction and repair, navy department, the new battleships—Alabama, building at the Cramp yards, and Wisconsin, at the Union Iron works, San Francisco— are 97 per cent and 93 per cent complet ed respectively. The Illinois is 84 per cent completed and the Maine 30 per cent, the Ohio 20 per cent and the Mis souri but 6 per cent. Doscher Has Withdrawn. New York, July 11.—Wall street is interested in a report that Claus Doscher has withdrawn from the National Sugar Refining company, New Jersey, where he has been a director and large stock holder and has retired permanently from the sugar business. The report ia thought to be true, although Mr. Doscher could not be found when an effort was made to secure a confirmation from him. Shag Rock Removed. San Francisco, July 11.—The work of removing Shag rock, which has been a menace to shipping in this harbor, is completed. The work of removing the arch rock, which obstructs the channel near Alcatraz, has commenced. Two New Cotton Mills. Columbia, S. C.» July 11.—A charter has been granted the Hartsville cotton mill, capital stock $250,000. A charter was also granted the Woodruff cotton mill, capitalized at S2SO t OQQ» EOhl Sol compels people to buy straw hats at the proper time but he fails to induce many people to enjoy fl*; maxi mum foot comfort by substituting ox fords for high shoes. Better think about this matter “good and hard.” We have the proper oxfords at the proper prices. SCHUMPERT SHOE CO. SECOND SESSION OF NATIONJSEDOCATORS Disappointment Over Small Attendance at Charleston. THE THEME OF DISCUSSION “Contributions of Religious Organiza tions to the Cause of Education” Was the General Topic—Detroit the Favorite For the Next Convention. Charleston, July 11.—“ The Contri butions of Religious Organizations to the Cause of Education” was the general topic at the morning session of the Na tional Educational association. Arrivals last night and this morning have in creased the attendance to nearly 8,000. President Corson presided. He an nounced that, owing to the serious ill ness of his wife, Rev. H. M. Dubose, general secretary of the Epworth league, who was to speak for the Methodist church, had been compelled to return to Nashville. President Oscar H. Cooper of Baylor university, Waco, Tex., spoke interest ingly of the part taken by the Baptist church in the cause of general education, and Dr. Conde B. Pallen of St. Louis told of the work of the Catholic church and its constant campaigns of education in all countries. At the close of the morning session, the president announced the nominat ing committee, composed of one mem ber from each state represented. This body will meet and nominate a ticket for the coming year, which will be an nounced the last day of the convention. The contest for the next convention city shows Detroit slightly in the lead. The Michigan delegates claim to have the support of all the northern and east ern states. Cincinnati’s campaign has not been permitted to lag. , Considerable disappointment is ex pressed over the small attendance here. Preparations were made for the recep tion and entertainment of many thous ands, but thus far, they have not ap peared. Some of the delegates claim the convention city is too far south to be reached by the travelers of the far north and west, while nearly all of those states sent enormous delegations to Los Angeles one year ago. It is believed the California convention will hold the attendance record for years to come and as a financial venture it was a success, the association realizing nearly [sß,ooo. The educators, it is said, will lose $3,000 on the Charleston gathering, principally on account of the small attendance. There were no sessions of the depart mental organizations until late this af ternoon. WHITE HAS NO OPPOSITION. Bitter Contest Over Place on the Re publican State Ticket. Charleston, W. Va., July 11.—The Republican state convention here is the most largely attended of any in the his tory of the party in this state. Besides the nomination of a state ticket, it is made the occasion for the opening of the presidential campaign and the canvass of Hon. Stephen B. Elkins as senator. While the Republicans carried the state four years ago, the plurality was close and the margin in the legislature was so slight as to be in dispute. Every thing is at stake between the parties this year, including the presidential vote, full state ticket and control of the legis lature which elects a United States sen ator, but the chief contention here this week is over the state offices. While there is no opposition to Elkins for senator or A. B. White for governor the contests for other places on the state ticket are in marked contrast to these two cases. There are many candidates for each place. The contests for minor places have become bitter. Will Be Extended to Macon. Macon, July 11.—It is contemplated that Macon shall have a new railroad. The Waycross Air Line company has filed a first mortgage in Bib superior court. It is proposed that the road shall be from Brunswick to Macon via Way cross. Forty miles of the track has al ready been laid and work is progressing rapidly. John E. Wadlev, son of the late William Wadley or the Central railroad, is president of the Waycross road. No Change of Plans. Washington, July 11.—It was stated at the White House that no word had been received there to the effect that President McKinley will return to Wash ington Saturday. As far as the officials at the executive mansion know there has been no change in the president's original plans. Will Put Out State Tickets. Lincoln, Neb., July 11.—Three fusion state conventions, the Populists, Demo cratic and Silver Republican, are in ses sion here to nominate full state tickets. Sail For England. Oape Town, July 11.— The Duke oi Marlborough, the Duke of Norfolk, Lady Sarah Wilson and Dr. Conan Doyle have sailed for England. NO. 72
