NO FUSION
AT BOISE
But Prospects are Bright

AMERICANS
HANDICAPPED
In Their March to Pekin without
ij Proper Equipment— Slept in
gain Without Cover.
Boisk, Idaho, Aug. 31.—The executive
committee of the silver parties are still
at work, without having accomplished
any tangible results. It is saiil, however,
that prospects of reaching a fusion have
improved since last night.
Pkkin, Aug. 3t.—(By post via Tien
Tain)—One disadvantage Americans had
during the hard march to relief of 1'ekiti
was that their transportation wagons were
late in arriving. The Ninth infantry pos
sessed the only one^ which had arrived
at Tien Tsin in time for starting.
The supplies were divided among the
soldiers of the Ninth and the Fourteenth
and a battery. The Americans, with
haversacks, blankets, and tent rolls,
started under the heaviest loads, hut they
were soon stripped to lighting trim, pre
fering to forego their blankets rather
than sweat under them. During the last
two nights of the inarch they slept in
the rain without any shelter or cover
One night the wagon train lost the road
and passed the American camp. The
drivers plodded along in the darkness
and rain for four indes. The) might have
driven into the Chinese camp; but, for
tunately, the Russians stopped them just
in time.
Preparing; for War.
Nf,w York, Aug. 31.—The increased
interest in military affairs resulting front
the Spanish-Ameriean war and the armed
conflicts now in progress in South Africa,
China and elsew here is manifested by the
unusually large number of participants
in the animal rifle competitions which
commenced today at Sea Girt, N. J. More
states are represented in the list of en
tries than ever before. In the Hilton
trophy match the contestants include na
tional guardsmen from New York, New
Jersey, Massachusetts and the District
of Columbia. Illinois and Minnesota
have also expressed intentions of enter
prising the contest. In the revolver
team matches will be seen representatives
of the militia of Massachusetts, Georgia,
New Jersey and Maryland. The couipe
titions will continue for ten days.
Sensational China News.
NEW York, Aug. 29.—A dispatch to
the Tribune from London says:
No information can be obtained here of
various sensational stories telegraphed
from foreign capitals in reference to the
Chinese question. There is a report from
St. Petersburg that a battle has taken
place within the walls of Pekin and that
the allies were compelled to fall back,
losing 1800 men. This alarming story
produced no effect on the stock exchange
or elsewhere, because it was not believed
tor is there anything to support the
statement cabled by a Washington corre
spondent to a London Newspaper that
Russia has informed the United States
government that she propose to annex
Manchuria.
Rut whether any such declaration has
actually been made to auy power, not
much doubt is felt that it embodies Rus
sia's intentions, subject only to her abil
ity to meet the opposition which the an
nexation of Manchuria would he sure to
encounter from Japan. In fact, the pro
! cess has already begun since Russia is
j quietly assimilating Chinese territory
! south of the Amoy river.
In some quarters it is thought that the
I landing of Japanese troops at ainoy is
the Japanese answer to these Muscovite
L
moves. The British consul at Shanghai
has lieeti appealed to by the viceroy of
Foo-kien to prevent this aggression. The
Tokio government may reply that if the
integrity of the government of China is
inoculated by Russia that Japan is also
entitled to seek acquisitions in the Celes
tial kingdom.
Some outspoken critics here are begin
ning to recognize that the outcome ofthe
present crisis will eventually be that
slices of Chinese territory will certainly
pass into possession of Russia, Germany
and Japan. The first named will sieze
Manchuria on the plea that China de
clared war and invaded Silieria, Germany
will claim Shan Tung as indemnity for
Baron Yon Ketteler and Japan will take
Corea if she can get it, or, if not, Autoy.
What the British policy will he in this
event is not known.
END OF HORTON LAW.
Legal Prize Fighting no Longer Permissible
In New York—A Rich Harvest Reaped lor
Many Months Past.
Nkw York, Aug, 31 . —At midnight to
night the Horton law, which ha.« made
prize fighting permissible in the metrop
olis and throughout the state of New
York, ceases to exist, and simultaneously
the Lew is hill prohibiting pugilistic con
tests becomes a law. For many months
past the fight promoters and the fighters
have reaped a golden harvest in this
vicinity, hi fact, the field for money
making in this direction w is the richest
ever known in the annals of prize light
ing in this or any other country.
In New York City prize fights have
l>een pulled off at the rate of a dozen a
week, and within a period of six or eight
months every big fighter of prominence
in the country has been seen in the ring
of one or another of the so-called clubs
that have flourished like green hay trees
under the protection of the Horton law.
The new condition of things is a serious
blow to those financially interested in the
sport. No new field promising satisfac
tory financial returns is offered to them.
There has been some talk of migrating
to Connecticut, where twenty-round con
tests are still permitted, hut the citizens
of the Nutmeg State have not taken
kindly to the suggestion, and further
more the chances of getting together a
paying crowd fer u big fight in Hartford
or Bridgeport are not particularly bright.
Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia and other
large cities limit the fights to six rounds,
while New Orleans, once the paradise of
the fighters, continues to frown upon the
sport. Altogether San Francisco seems
to offer the best inducements and it is
probable that a number of the fighters
and their managers will turn their faces
westward next week.
To Release Paul Corcoran.
Boisk, Idaho, Aug. 29.—Today A. A.
Fraser made application to Chief Justice
Huston of the supreme court for a writ of
error in the case of Paul Corcoran, the
north Idaho dynamiter, who is serving a
term in the state penitentiary. A con
stitutional question was raised, it being
claimed that Corcoran had lieen denied
compulsory process of the lower court.
The chief justice denied the application,
Attorney Fraser will leave shortly for
Washington to lay the matter before the
United States supreme court.
Suits have been commenced in the
United States court to recover the value
of a large amount of titulier cut from
government land in F'remouut county.
The United States is the plaintiff in each
case and the defendants are the St.
Anthony Railroad company and the
Thompson Mercantile company. In each
case judgment for #21,64070 is asked.
Nearly 2,ooo,oco feet are alleged to have
been illegally cut in each case.
Abundant Apple Crop. ,
Col, FAX, Wash., Ang. 29 . —The fall
apple crop is now being gathered in the
Palouse country and an ahudaut harvest
is assured. The apples are unusually
large and of excellent quality and the
yield is as large as was ever known. The
price is also good, and growers are as
sured a good profit from the industry
which is becoming a matter of no small
imjxjrtance in the Palouse country, the
total receipts front apples grown in Whit
man county this year is estimated at
from #150,000 to #200,000. This, of course,
includes all varieties, of which the winter
apple crop far exceeds the crop of fall
apples. The fruit finds ready sale in the
Coeur d'Aleuesand British Columbia min
ing districts and Montana. Many car
loads will lie shipped daily from different
points in the Palouse country from now
on until the season closes.

Powers to
and Help
Washington, Aug, 31—The state de
partment has just made public the text
of the Russian proposal and its own re
sponse. The substance of the Russian
proposal is ns follows:
Russia has no desigjis on territorial ac
quisition in <'himt Equally with ojher
powers now operating there Russia has
sought safety for her legation at Pekin
and help for the Chiijesegovernment to
repress trouble; that, incidentally to nec
essary defensive measures on the Rus
sian border, Russia has occupied New
Chawaug for military purposes, mid
as soon as order is re-established
will retire her troops front it,
action of the powers he no obstacle there
to; that the purpose fi»r which the var
ious governments have co-operated for
the relief of the legations at Prkiu is ac
complished; that taking the position that
as the Chinese government left Pekin
there is no need for her representatives
to remain. Russia has directed the Rus
sian minister to retife with his official
personnel from China. That the Russian
troops will likewise lie withdrawn. That
when the government of China shall re
gain the reins of government and afford
authority with which the other powers
can deal and will express a desire to en
ter into negotiations. The Russian
government will also name its
representatives Holding these views
and purposes R ussia expresses a hope
that the United States shall share some
opinion. The government of the United
States received the news w ith much sat
isfaction, reiterated the statement that
Russia has no design for territorial ac
quisition in China, that equally with the
other powers now operating in China,
Russia has sought safety for her lega
tions in Pekin, to litflp the Chinese gov
ernment to repress the existing trouble.
