FOOD ALMOST EXHAUSTED Thirty Thousand Chinese Troops At tack the City—Nearly All the Lega tions Have Been Destroyed For eigners Have Regarded Their Posi tion as Hopeless Since June 26. Chee Foo, July 12. —A courier from Sir Robert Hart, in Peking, has just ar rived, bringing this message, dated June 23: “Close to good bye. Near the end.” Shanghai, July 12.—A private letter from Peking dated June 24 and received at Tien Tsin June 30 says: “We are in danger of death. Thirty thousand troops are attacking. Only three days’ food is left. “No news comes of troops. If no re lief comes all seems hopeless. “Mallien’s store has been burned and the Hotel de Peking bombarded. The Italian, uutcn, American ana part oi the British legations have been burned.” This confirms Sir Robert’s dispatch of the same date. Yuan Shih Ki has telegraphed Taotai Sheng that he has received a verbal message from Peking dated July 5 to the effect that two legations were still un captured and that more than half the Boxers had dispersed. Refugees who have arrived from Tien Tsin, which they left on July 5, regard the position of foreign Peking as hope less since June 26. Washington, July 12. —A belated ca blegram has been received at the navy department from Taku via Siberia. It bore no signature, but Secretary Long believes it came from Rear Admiral Kempff. The text of the message is as follows: “Runner from Peking reports that German troops burned the tsung li ya men. The Chinese have moved many field guns on the wall commanding thu legation. Chinese subjects have been advised to leave the legations. ’ ’ London's View of the Situation. London, July 12. —The character ol the news from China only tends to con firm the pessimism in London concern ing the fate of the international colony at Peking. Observers see in the edict from Peking and information emanating from Che Foo and other sources only attempts to gain time, and desperate anxiety on the part of some one to make an apology for the outrages committed at the capital. The latest news from Tien Tsin con siderably intensifies thef general alarm. The lack of cohesion among the A allies and the consequent failure to make headway renders the situation there critical. Prince Tuan Reported Insane. Che Foo, July 12.—1 tis reported on good authority that Prince Tuan has become insane. WILL AGGREGATE $3,000,000. Birmingham Industrial Development, New Capital Invested. Birmingham, Ala., July 12.—Th ©.rec ords show that during the first sb months in the present year 29 new cor porations were formed in Jefferson county, with a total capital slock oi $1,518,750. In addition to these new corporations, two old ones increased their capital stock $150,000 and $25,000 respectively, making the grand total $1,688,750. The capital stock repre sented by the various concerns ranges from $250 to $700,000, and every line oi business is represented. Chief among them are the corporations for the opera tion of coal mines and new iron and kindred manufactories. As there has been no let up in this work of development, so far as the formation of new companies is con cerned, it is believed that the total for the year will exceed $3,000,000 of new capital invested in the district. Counterfeit Money In a Sewer. Coi.Umbus, Ga., July 12. —Several lit tle white boys playing in a gutter at the corner of Sixth avenue and Thirteenth streets found about SSO in counterfeit quarters and hick els.

COMMITTEE VISITS PRESIDENT M'KINLEY He Is Officially Notified of His Nomination, ISSUES OF THE CAMPAIGN Speech of Senator Lodge and the Pres ident’s Response Form the Basis Upon Which It Will Be Fought. Roosevelt Also Notified. Canton, July 12.—The second notifi cation of William McKinley that he had been selected as the nominee of the Re publican party for president was made at the same place as the first, and all the accessories were similar to the occa sion of four years ago. Then the chair man of the committe was Senator John M. Thurston of Nebraska, who had been prominent in his nomination. Today, Senator Lodge, in the presence of a vast multitude officially notified President McKinley that he was the unanimous choice of the Republican na tional convention for president. The speech of Senator Lodge and the re sponse of Mr. McKinley were intended to be more than formal and to a certain extent formed the basis upon which the campaign is to be fought this year. Their utterances were listened to with the closest attention by the many promi inent Republicans present. Chairman Lodge and the members of the notification committee, together with Chairman Hanna and members of the national committee, arrived on a special train from Cleveland at 11 o’clock. They were met at the station by the citizens’ committee in charge of the arrange ments, and with a band of music were escorted to the home of President Mc- Kinley. Several flags had been flung to the breeze in the early morning and the streets through which the procession moved had some indications of a cele bration. The various organizations and clubs as they arrived marched to the president’s home and were grouped about the place within seeing and hear ing distance of the ceremonies. Governor Roosevelt Notified. Oyster Bay, N. Y., July 12.—Gov ernor Roosevelt was today officially no tified by a committee at his home, Saga more, near Oyster Bay, of his nomina tion for the vice presidency. The committee left New York on a special train at 10:30 o’clock and made a quick run to Oyster Bay, where car riages were in waiting to convey them to Sagamore. Senator Wolcott, of Colorado, officially notified Governor Roosevelt that he was the choice of the Republican national convention for vice president, to which the governor responded in his character istic manner. A. P. WHITE FOR GOVERNOR. Bitter Fight on For Minor Places on the Ticket. Charleston, W. Va., July 12.—The Republican state convention convened for its second day’s session under pecu liar circumstances. Usually the inter est lags after the head of the ticket has been named. The contests only began at this convention after A. P. White was nominated without opposition for govornor. There are many contestants for all the other places. The harmony for Elkins and White gave way to a long series of speeches in presenting names and balloting and contending for the minor places on the state ticket. The contests have been waged all week and the fighting for places is car ried on with great bitterness. STILL UNABLE TO AGREE. Fuslonists In Session All Night—Dem ocratic Proposition. Lincoln, Neb., July 12. Daylight found the three fusion state conventions still in session with practically no'pro gress made further than the adoption ol their separate platforms. The whole question hinges on whether the Demo crats would yield from the position they had taken in demanding two places on the state ticket, together with all thp_ electors for president and vice presi dent. All efforts to bring about a sur render were howled down derisively. In the Populist gathering some fiery speeches were made in denunciation of the stubborn attitude assumed ’by the Democrats. BRYAN WILL TAKE A REST. He Will Make No More Speeches For the Present. Lincoln, Neb., July 12.—The speeches of Mr. Bryan to the three fusion con ventions are expected to be the last pub lic utterances he will make for several days. Mr. Bryan is anxious to get all the rest he can before going to Indian apolis to receive the official notification or his nomination. Nearly all the prominent politicians who have been here since Sunday have departed and few, if any, other visitors are expected this week. Will Be Notified Aug. 8. Chicago, July 12.—Bryan and Steven son will be officially notified of theii nomination at Indianapolis Aug. 8. TWENTY' PEOPLE INJURED. Electric Cars Collide at Springfield. None Escape Unhurt. Springfield, 0., July 12.—-Two cars collided on the Dayton, Springfield and Urbana electric road late last night and were telescoped. Probably 20 persons were injured. One car was loaded with persons returning from a church picnic, and nearly all the passengers were hurt. Motorman Armstrong had a leg broken and was internally injured He may die. Several others of the injured are in a critical condition. Two New Stamp Mills. Dahlonega, Ga., July 12.—Two hun dred yards from the site of the present gold mining plant of 120 stamp will be erected in the course of the next few months a second 120-stamp mill, and less than 4 miles from this point a third mill of the same number of stamps will be put in. The completion of this work which is outlined for the present year will give Georgia three of the largest plants to be found in the United Statea. ALLIES BADLY DISORGANIZED Discord Adds o the Gravity of the Situation at Tien Tsin. FORCE IS HANDICAPPED Safety of the City Is Imperiled By a Lack of Organization—Commander of AH Troops Is Necessary— Com manders Work Withont Co-opera tion—Conferences of No Avail. Tien Tsin, July 4, via Shanghai, July 12.—A homogeneous army of half the strength of the allied forces could do better work than is being done by them. The operations are dangerously handi capped and the safety of the city is im perilled by lack of organization and the want of one commander to control all the forces. The representatives of the several nations manage their civil and military affairs largely without co-opera tion. The ranking officers of each na tionality has absolute jurisdiction over the operations of his government’s troops. Questions of policy are discussed daily at international conferences, which have not the power to enforce the wishes of the majority. Admiral Seymour’s method of com manding is to make requests, which the other commanders generally follow, but there have been instances of the rank ing officers holding aloof from opera tions of which they disapprove. There is great need of more troops. The pres ent force of 10,000 men is attempting to hold a line 15 miles long around the city. There is also great need of re building the railroad to Taku and get ting artillery equal to the guns with which the Chinese are daily bombard ing the allies’ position. Allies Lose 60 Men Killed. The week’s work resulted in a sub stantial gain for the Chinese, as the al lies lost 50 or 60 men and succeeded in accomplishing nothing. Yesterday furn ished a new illustration of the weak ness of the present methods. A major ity of the commanders have agreed that it was imperative to attack the native city beyond the foreign settlement and destroy the artillery therein which menaced the settlements. The attack was fixed for four days, but was post poned because the Russian commander considered his men unfit for duty after their recent work. It was again fixed for yesterday mornkig, but was post poned because creditable reports were in circulation that 10,000 regulars from the northwest had reinforced the Chinese. Meantime, the "Chinese have removed two big guns on the fort near to the na tive city and have planted four in the open near the east arsenal 2 miles away. These shelled the city for four hours, sending in more than 100 shells. They got the range of the public buildings and of the clubhouse, used as a hospital, and dropped shells all about them. Some of tho shells failed to burst and others had a small radius of effectiveness. Situation Is Chaotic. In the absence of a concerted plan the Russians sent a few companies of Cos sacks, with two field guns, and the Japanese a battery of three 6-pounders, and two companies of infantry support ing the English 12-pounders from the Terrible to silence them. The Terrible’s guns failed to get an effective position and the Russians had one gun dis mounted and four men killed early in the engagement. The Japanese are confident that they silenced the guns in the open, but it ap peared to the onlookers that these guns fired the last shots as the Japanese were retiring. The Russians lost heavily and the Japanse had one killed and 12 wounded. The Chinese threw a few shells into the city this morning to show that they still were alive. A British officer described the situa tion as chaotic. He said: “We have wasted many days in po liteness, and it is time we did some thing.” Discord Among the Commanders. There is no disagreement among the commanders, but in the absence of a definite head several of them are dis posed to follow their own methods and then simply abstain from operations contrary to these methods. The foreign population is greatly aroused concerning this apparent apa thy. While the city is being bombarded they are likely to suffer heavily and they cannot understand the apparent negli gence of the governments to furnish re lief and why reinforcements are not coming on faster. The Americans are particularly dissatisfied because, though they have one of the smallest representa tions, their interests are second to none. One experienced officer said: “It is impossible to realize at home that there has been more real war here than' in Cuba or the Philippines.” The Germans have occupied and raised their flag over the Imperial university of Tien Tsin. The officers of the univer sity are Americans. The viceroy deeded the property to them. Consul Ragsdale has protested against the action of the Germans. Smallpox At Cape Nome. San Frangisco, July 12.—The steamer San Juan, which has arrived from Cape Nome with 46 disappointed goldseekers, having left Nome June 30, brings news that there were 11 cases of smallpox there. There were also numerous cases of pneumonia. The passengers predict that the military rule now prevailing at the Oape will soon adjust the differences Between the contending claim owners and that peace will be preserved. Crapshooter Killed. Birmingham, Ala., July 12.—At Ish kooda Clarence Battle, a negro, was shot and killed by John Jackson, an other negro. The men quarreled over a game of craps, in which the sum of 5 cents was involved. Jackson escaped. Officers Elected. New York, July 12.—At the annual meeting of the stockholders of the Wes tern Union Telegraph company, held at the company’s office in Jersey City, offi cers and directors were elected. Thomas T.

Charleston, July 12.—The National Educational association has elected J. M. Green of the State Normal school, Trenton, N. J., president of the associa tion. L. C. Greenlee of Colorado waa chosen secretary to succeed Mr. Pearse of Omaha. Irwin Shepherd of Winona, Minn., holds over as treasurer. Vice presidents were elected from each of ths states represented at the convention. The office of treasurer will hereafter be filled on the rotating plan. President Corson presided at the morn ing session of the general convention. “The Problem of the Grades” was the topic. That branch of the subject com ing under the head of discipline was as signed to Miss Gertrude Edmund, prin cipal of the Teachers’ Training school, Lowell, Mass. She recommended the establishment of a department of dra matic art for every school as an essen tial to discipline. Miss Elizabeth Buchanan, of Kansas City, read a paper on the problem of classification and promotion, and the problem of instruction was well handled by Mrs. Alice Woodworth Oooley, su perintendent of primary grades, Minne apolis. The departments held meetings dur ing the afternoon. Professor Woodford Alderson, of the University of South Dakota, read a paper before the depart ment of business education. Miss Emma A. Newman, an instructor of Buffalo, read a paper before .the kindergarten education department. “A Study in Musical Interpretation,” was the subject of a paper by H. E. Krata read before the child study department. ARBITRATION IS SUGGESTED Citizens Urge a Settlement of the St. Louis Strike. St. Louis, July 12.—Notwithstanding the renewal of the strike, street oars are running as usual on the various lines of the St. Louis Transit company. Officials of the company declare that a numbe’rof the strikers have deserted the union and are applying for work. This is denied by the Strikers’ executive committee, which makes a counter assertion that men are leaving the employ of the com pany. Efforts are being made by the citi- • zens’ committee to settle the strike by arbitration. The committee has issued a statement reviewing the situation and requesting both parties to the contro versy to submit matters in dispute for settlement by a board of arbitration. Neither side has answered the request. The Transit company officials assert that so far as they are concerned there is no strike. MACHINISTS MAY STRIKE. Report From Knoxville Says Walk Out Is Probable. Knoxville, July 12.—A machinist employed in the Lonsdale shops of the Southern railway in this city is au thority for the statement that the ma chinists in all the Southern’s shops may strike if the company fails to grant cer tain concessions asked. The machinists want an increase of 5 per cent in their wage scale, a 9-hour day instead of 10 hours, as at present, the regulation of work'of “handy men” in their shops and the limitation of an apprentice to every five machinists. If the demands are not granted, he says, a vote will be taken on a strike. Two-thirds of the men can order the strike. DEVOURED BY CANNIVALS. Party of Bushmen Slain and Roasted In New Britain. Victoria, B. C., July 12.—Bushmen from Oape Oxford, according to a letter received by the Miowera from Sydney, were killed and eaten by cannibals on the coast of New Britain. The most horrifying part was when several men were captured alive and dragged to the scene of the feast their bodies were to provide. They were clubbed and afterward roasted and eaten. This tribe of native ghouls is one of the most notorious in the islands for man eating, who kill for food solely. The victims were not all killed at once, some of them witnessing the killing of their comrades and tne first part of the cannibal feast. WORK OF MAKING UP JURY. Six Meo Have Been Selected—-Their Names Withheld. Georgetown, Ky., July 12.—1 n the Powers trial the defense ask that the order show that six temporarily accepted jurors were sworn to try the case. Judge Cantrill granted the request, but re fused to permit the np-.es of the six jurors to appear in the order. The swearing of jurors before the full jury is selected, will likely be urged as error in of appeal. The special venire of 100 men is»here and the making up of the jury has been resumed. Lynching In Alabama. Creswell, Ala., July 12.—John Jen* I nings, a negro, has been lynched here. ■ Thursday last Jennings shot and killed ; L. Martin, a coaler on the railroad.
