PURIFICATION OF WATER 1
W ATER is no more necessary to life
than pure water is to health. Be
cause persons have drank ques
tionable wat,er and still live is no evi
dence that they would not have lived
better on pure water. Because one sur
vives a »lose of poison, it is is no reason
that poison is good or harmless.
IT IS REASONABLE,
if a, tmdly polluted water causes severe
and fatal' disease, that slightly impure
water may slowly undermine the health
hy being the cause of a host of ailments
ami inabilities of body for which the suf
ferer finds no apparent cause.
When a citv is supplied with only
doubtfully pure water, no family should
be without a private filter.

ENTERED
PEKIN
The Allies Entered China's
Capital City Wednesday
Last.
LEGATIONS
ARE SAFE
Tht Celestials Resisted the Entrance
Stubbornly but Were forced to
Retreat.
Tokio, Aug. 18.—General Yamaguchi
wires from l'ekin, August 16, as follows:
The allies attacked Pekin early yester
day, opening with artillery on eastern
side. The enemy obstinately held their
position on the wall. The Japanese and
Russians were on the north side of Tung
Chow canal. The Americans and Biitish
were on the south side. At nightfall the
Japanese blew up the Cham Chug Lang
and Tung She gates in east wall of Tar
tar city and entered. In the meantime
the American and British entered the
Chinese city Tung Prit gates. Detach
ments front each force was sent toward
the legations. The parties met near the
legation quarters and opened communi
cation. All the ministers and tlieir staff
I were found to he safe. The Japanese lost
; over 100 officers and men.
i The lossesof other allies were notascer
[ tained. The Chinese loss is estimated at
I four hundred killed.
London, Aug. 18—The following dis
patch was received at St. Petersburg to
day:
Port Arthur, Aug. 15. — General
Fluschu captured Hai Chang Aug. 12th,
after three days of fighting. Chinese lost
400 men, four guns, five-huudredChinese
retreated with eight guns.
Washington, D. C., Aug. 18.—Ad
vices have been received at the state de
partaient of the fall of Pekin, which oc
curred on Wednesday last. The entry of
the allies into the walled city took place
011 that day. The Chinese resisted the
attack of the allies, but were driven hack
with a reported loss of 31x1. The Japanese
lx>re the brunt of the battle and they
lost heavily.
The dispatches up to this time have all
been from other than official sources, hut
the general belief is that the reports are
authentic.
The allies entered the city hy the east
gate. It is believed that an effort was
made to negotiate for the delivery of the
foreigners and the Christians without a
decisive battle. This seems to have failed.
RKIONINC. POWKR DKPOSKD.
It is one of the deep laid principles of
the Chinese government that the reign
>"g power which permits an armed en
emy to enter the walled city of Pekin is
to be declared deposed. This accounts
for the sacrifices made in the past, rather
Ilian risk the result of decisive Imttle.
It is now said an entirely new govern
ment must lie provided for the whole of
China. All treaties must he made with a j
new potentate. It is believed Li Hung 1
Chang will Ire at the head of the new
government.
America out of It.
! Russia, Germany and France object to
Great Britain's action at Shanghai, while
I the St. Petersburg government will not
! withdraw, and thus remove all reason j
i for the policy of the British government j
I in the south. The United States remains j
I out of the whole affair. The taking of
! New- Cliwang hy Russia lias arroused ex
! citement in Japan. It took place, accord
j ing to information received here, on Aug
! ust 4. and though a dispatch received by
I Admiral Courrejolles in Paris referred to
! the subsequent evacuation of the treaty
j port, nothing confirmatory has been re
I ceived here. There were Boxers on the
! outskirts of the town, but it was unneces
i sary for the Russians to occupy the port
I "for the protection of foreign interests," !
Instead of leaving the administration of
the port in the hands of the Chinese offi
cials, it is declared that the Russian com
mander, who acted in accordance with
instructions from his superior general,
took over the municipal government, ad
ministering justice in the courts and in
stalling Russian officials to collect the
customs duties. Russia, in fact, extend
ed her soverigntv over the port.
This procedure, in the face of repeat
ed Kussion declarations that the czar hail
no design upon New Cliwaug, lias deeply
incensed the Japanese government. The
international situation has, according to
diplomats here, entered upon a most
dangerous and complicated phase, and
the greatest skill will have to he exerted
to prevent trouble lietween the powers.
Austria's Ruler.
ViKNNA, Aug. 18.—Emperor Francis
Joseph is seventy years old today, having
lieen liorn August 18, 1830. The love
and esteem in which the venerable sov
ereign is held by his forty millions of
subjects was everywhere manifested In
itie holding of brilliant celebrations and
fetes in honor of the day. There was an
absence of the usual court functions ow
ing to the mourning for the late king of
Italy. During the day the memliers of
the foreign diplomatic corps presented at
the palace telegraphic messages of con
gratulation from Emperor William,
Queen Yictoria, King Victor, the Queen
Regent of Spain and others. In Vienna
business was generally suspended and
the day was observed as a holiday.
With the exception of some of the
German sovereign princes there are hut
two European rulers older than Emperor
Francis Joseph, namely, Queen Victoria
and the aged king of Denmark, while
the length of his reign is exceeded by
that of Queen Victoria alone. Francis
Joseph succeeded to the throne Decem
ber 21, 1848,310! during his reign of
more than half a century the realm lias
changed from being the stronghold of
old conservatism to being the foremost
camp of advanced llneralism among the
continental monarchies. At the same time
tile
he has preserved tile traditions of the
court, which now, as ever, is the most ar
istocratic in Europe. Universal suffrage
ami great progress in science have come
alxnit during his reign and largely
through his efforts. Few lives have tx.-en
more beset with sorrow and suffering
than that of Francis Joseph. His reign
was horn in the midst of the revolution
ary troubles of 1848 and for more than 50
years he has never been for a moment
free to relax his hohl on public affairs
lest the sheaf of nations in Itis grasp
should fall assunder. Moreover, he has
enjoyed little or no domestic happiness to
lighten the load of public cares with
which he has been burdened. He
married in 1854 Elizabeth, a daughter of
Duke Maximilian of Bavaria. Her as
sassination at Geneva by the anarchist
Luccheni is of such recent date as to lie
fresh in the minds of everyone. Of his
three children the Crown I'rince Rudolph
committed suicide or was murdered at
Meyerling, while his widow recently
wedded in defiance of the Emperor's wish
es and who after hut three months of
wedded bliss, is now trying to obtain a
separation from her husband. The em
peror's daughters are ineligible to the
throne and the next heir. Archduke
Charles Louis, lias waived his rights in
favor of his son. This son and heir to
the throne, Archduke Francis Ferdinand,
recently added to the aged Emperor's woes
by contracting a left-handed marriage
with a woman of greatly inferior rank.
Another great sorrow which the la-loved
monarch lias borne in silence for years
was tlie execution of liis favorite brother,
the lamented Emperor Maximilian of
Mexico.

Nkw York, Aug. iS. —The Evening
World today has the following relative to

and in pairs from incoming ocean liners

secret service agents learned that an an
archist circle at Naples had cast lots to
determine who should he the assassin.
Eleven Italians and three Austrians
were selected and had closely followed
one another, sailing from different ports,
their object living to strike individual
blows at the president sometime, lielit-viug
such a method would make success sure.
By working with the Italian secret ser
vice agents they got information relativi
to the great meeting of the circle at Na
ples.
Trial of Caleb Powers.
Gkougp.town, Ky., Aug. 17.—In the
Caleb Powers trial yesterday arguments
of counsel were continued. Colonel W
C. Owens for the defense made a brilliant
address. Much Interest is being taken
in the argument ol Colonel Thomas
Campliell for the prosecution this morn
ing and in the argument of ex Governor
Brown for the defense today, while Com
monwealth Attorney Franklin will de
liver a strong argument in closing the
i-Hse tonight.
Victor Bradley, who continued his
speech for the prosecution, likened the
armed petitioner who went to l-'ruukfnrl
to a highwayman who draws his revolver
and "petitions" the traveler for his
purse and lie told tlie jury that it had
been proved that Charles Finley had said
Goebel will lie killed within five days,

and in less than that time Gobel was
lying quivering upon the pavement. He
also claimed that it had lieen proved that
Caleb Powers had said:
"If no one else will kill him, I will
kill him myself;" that Henry Youtsey
said Goebel could lie killed from Powers'
office and the assassin could run down
into tlie basement and never lie dis
covered.
When Bradley had concluded O. H.
Tinsley of Barbourvitle liegan for the de
fense. He said that one fact stood out
alxive every other in this case, and that
was that Powers was not within 50 miles
>1 Frankfort when Goebel was shot, had
locked his office and no one was locked
11 It; that he could not have possibly
known who fired the shot, or where it
was fired from.
