„( \l<»N', Junv Ifi.—This Is the •situa
tion In China as it appears to the Shang
hai c irresp indent of the Daily Express,
cabling last evening:
"It is really a state of veiled war. The
members of the foreign legations in Pekin
ore virtually prisoners, and the Chinese
troops are only restrained from attack
i irt: them i>y fear of the legation guards.
' Meanwhile the legations are unable to
communicate with tho leaders of the re
lu i column, which is making forced
marches between Tier. Tsin and Pekln.
The walls of the capital arc guarded by
■ Imperial troops. The gates are
heavily defended with modern guns. Gen.
Tung, acting under orders from the em
press dowager, said that no more foreign
troops shall enter the sacred c:tv.
"On Monday the ministers sent a de
mand to the tsung li yamen that the gates
b< opened, declaring that otherwise the
gn troops would enter forcibly. To
tl is no reply was given. A second mes
went unanswered, or hud not lm n

Jin-' orrespondent asserts, not
withstanding assurances to tlie contrary,
sides with China. Some foreign troops
are already reported to be in the environs
of I', kin, and the atltude of the Chinese
troops is Increasingly menacing.
•"The streets of Pekin," c ntinues the
correspondent "f the Daily Express, "are
reported to be seething with anti-foreign
mobs, clamoring for destruction of the
legations and the death of the foreign
ministers. Even wen the tsiiMg \\ yamen
(?!spo.«;ed t<> restrain the violence of the
reactionaries, It is considered hi;rh!y im
probable that they will be able t<> hold
them in check. Danger for the foreign
ministers from the Chinese will arrive
when the relief column comes in sight of
Pekin.
"It is still felt here that the foreign
force is totally Inadequate to battle with
the honies of Chinese troops massed out- '
eide the gates, which now Include the
Imperial troops from Shan Hal Chang."
DISQUIETING ELKMENT.
A disquieting element in the situation
is the fact that, although the Ru^so-Chi
liese line from Pekin via Kia Tcha (East
ern Siberia), is working again, the trans- '
mission of messages is rigidly refused.
From Tien Tsin it is reported that the
foreign fores in the harbor will seize the
„- Tuku forts, and, If necessary, bombard
them.
The Internatii nal column still appears
to be at Lang Pang, engaged in slowly re
pairing the railway, which, according to
a dispatch from Tien Tsin to the Daily
Mail, dated June 14, cannot l> effected for
w. c ka. Tho force is short of provisions,
and, as it is without field iransuort, it
must stick to (lie railway.
'lii, report that the mixed forces will
Beize the Taku forts is taken to mean that
the foreign commanders expect no aid
from the Chinese government in repress
ing- the disorders, and are determined to
make Taku serve as a base for the op
• lons.
TELEGRAPH TO PEKIN CUT.
PARIS, June 55.— At a cabinet council
today 'he minister of foreign affairs, M.
Delcasse, announced that the telegraph
line to Pekin had again been cut. The
latest dispatch from the French minister
there, he added, was dated the evening
. of June 12, and said the Chinese govern
n.c nt had informed him it would not op
pose the foreign detachments entering
Pekin.
MISSIONARIES SAFE.
NEW YORK, June 15.—1n response to
tie cablegram a few days ago by Dr. A.
B. Leonard, seen tar;, of the Missionary
Society of the Methodist Episcopal
Church, asking after the safety of mis
sionaries, the following was received to
day from Tien Tsin:
'Tsunhuas safely arrived here. Shan
tung :s arrived to Chin Kiaag. Pekin in
very dangerous state. Chinese army is
QUile uncertain."
The lirst sentence of the above disposes
of the rumor circulated a day or two ago
that Miss Terry had been murdered.
was at Xsunhua, and all the Metho
dist missionaries there have, it appears,
arrived safely in Tien Tsin. Chin Kiang
is .n the i'angtse river, about 200 miles
c Shanghai. The Shantung mission
aries will go there if they can.
CABINET DISCUSSION.
WASHINGTON, June 15.—The cabinet
meeting today lasted until after 1 o'clock.
Much of the lime was devoted to the dis
cussion of the Chinos^ situation, which is
regarded as critical. The severance of
communication with Pekin and the fainire
to hear from Minister Conger fo.* sixty
hours naturally creates consider lole "anx
iety, and the complications ii> connection
with possible future contingene'.-^ were
talked over, but nothing further will be
done until later advices are received. No

occasion arise to protect ih> Jives and

their natural reluctance to employ t?oops,

this afternoon were considering an alter

Remey's licet, notably the Oregon, and
the addition of the sailors and marines

\\ in-ii National Democratic
Convention Mcctit.
KANSAS CITY, June 15.—The subcom
mittee of the Democratic national com
mittee, appointed to deal with the ar
rangements for the national convention
July 4, met here today. The committee
has come to Kansas City to make final
arrangements for the gathering. The two
most important questions to be considered
will be the alleged extortionate rates
charged by the hotel men, and the ability
of the contractors to finish Convention
hall sufficiently to accommodate the con
vention.
Hon, James K. Jones, chairman of the
national commit tee, presided at the meet
ing. The others present were: J. G. John
son. 01 Kansas, vice chairman of the exec
utive committee; C. A. Walsh, of lowa,
(secretary of the national committee;
Missis. L). J. Campau, of Michigan; Adair
Wilson, of Colorado; William J. Stone, of
Missouri, vice chairman of the national
committee, and John I. Martin, sergeant
at-arms.
Chairman Jones announced that he
would during the day issue a statement
to the country on the findings of the com
mittee.
After a conference with the leading ho
tel men and with the general conference
committees of Kansas City, Chairman
Jones handed the Associated Press the
following signed statement:
"The three or four leading hotels have
already contracted practically for their
full capacity. On account of thr- in
creased expense In preparing for the con
vention, the managers of the larger ho
tels felt themselves compelled to require
contract for a minimum time of four
days, the time to begin at the option of
the delegation making the contract, but
they did not increase their regular rat< .
"in the other hotels, nearly forty in
number, and the eight or ten thousand
outside rooms listed by the local i
mittee on public comKirt, accommola
tioi.s tan be had at reasonable rates, and
payment is only required for the length
of time the rooms are occupied.
"The local committee on public com
fort has so systematized its work that it
appears to me that it is possble for any
man to be taken tare of better and at
more reasonable rates than has been the
case at any former convention.
"The general work of the bureau of
information and committee on puli Ie
comfort is in charge of A. 1). L. Hamil
ton, New York Life building 1, Kansas
City, Mo., who will- give all information
(It sin-;!, reserve rooms and make con
tracts for all persons wishing to attend
the convention. Comfortable rooms may
in- secured by correspondence with him.
Branch headquarters of this bureau will
be established at all railroad stations in
the city, and members of the committee
on public comfort, wtarir.g badges, wi.'l
meet all incoming trains, and will also
be stationed at all hotels, to assist vis
itors in securing the kinds of quarters
desired.
—"James J. Jones."
HALL WILL BE READY.
The subcommittee carefully investigat
ed the progress being made in the. build
ing of Convention hall. Some doubt waa
expressed by members of the committee
that the great hall could not bt com
pleted by July 4, and then, was talk ol
urging the local committee to have a
night sliitt of mechanics put to work
upon the building, but after the subcom
mittee had been in conference with the
local committee and the supervising
architects, tiny no longer doubted the
assurance that the hall would be finished
In time.
The meeting of the subcommittee was
behind closed doors. After the adjourn
ment It was stated that the only busi
n< ss of public Interest transacted was
the apportionment of tickets of admission
to the convention among the delegates
and alternates. It was decided that each
of the 938 delegate* should receive, be
sides his own seat, four tickets of ad
mission to all sessions of the convention,
bat that no extra tickets would be given
to the alternates, their perquisites being
limited to a seat in the convention. Some
of the members favored giving each al
ternate an extra ticket, but this proposi
tion was voted down.
Judge Wilson, of Colorado, displayed a
sample of the Democratic campaign but
ton here today. It is in the form of a
clover leaf. The inscription, strangely
enoi'gh, is in gold letters -and is as fol
lows:
"Democracy Stands for Bimetallism,
Not Monometallism; People, Not Trusts;

over the vice presidency on the Demo

SUN ECLIPSE OBSERVATIONS.
Preliminary Account of What Wujs
a <•<■<. in|.:ixii( <i.
WASHINGTON, June 15 — A prelim
inary account of the observations made
at Wadesboro, N. C, during the recent
eclipse, under the direction of the Smjh
sonlan institute, has been piepared by
C. (',. Abbott, of the instltut.on.
"The main object of Investigation,"
says Mr. Abbott, "was the corona, and
of this, first, a photographic study of
the detailed stiucture of the inner co
rona, with, second, a determination by
the bolometer, whether appreciable heat
reaches us from it, and, if possible, an
examination of the form of its spectrum
energy curve.
"The eclipse was notably a dark one.
No second magnitude stars were observ
ed with the naked eye. Most of the ob
servers saw only Mercury, though Venus
was distinguished by some, and Cappella
also was seen by a few. The high de
gree of illumination operated unfavor
ably in the study of the outer corona.
'Tlie negatives taken to depict the
ouUr corona,'' continued Mr. Abbott,
''show from three to four solar diameters
extension the longest streamers. The
equatorial wings assume more and more
hairlike proportions as they recede from
tiit sun and arc finally lost in an equally
illuminated sky, without given any indi
cation of actually coining to an end.
"No attempt to clearly examine the
plates taken for intra-mercurial planers
has yet been possible. It is, however,
doubtful if any very faint objects will be
found, In consideration of the consichr-
I able sky illumination during totality.
However, Pleione and many faint stars
in the Pleiades were plainly seen on ona
of the plates.
"On the whole, the expedition may
fairly be considered as very satisfactory
in its lesults."

VICTORIA, B. C June 15.—From Jap
an comes news that, in view- of the pro
] prosed immense augmentation of the
naval forces of other powers, the Jap
anese i.aval authorities are about to en
ter upon a new naval programme. As
enly 5,000,000 yen will be yearly devoted
to the navy, men like Admiral Inouye
j recommend the construction of torpedo
j boat destroyers. This class of boats cost
j about ;00,000 yen, so that thirty destroy
| ers can be built for the price of one bat
j tleship. It is anticipated that the nev;
J programme will authorize the constiuc
! tion of torpedo boat destroyers only.

LORD ROBERTS MUST SOON AGAIN
ATTACK THE
BOERS
HOW DEWET LURED METHUEN
Hlh Iluxe Enabled Him Jo Do Great
Damage to British Line of Com
munication—President Strj n
Said to Oitpufte Peace.
LONDON, June 15.—Lord Roberts' dis
patches leave affairs east of Pretoria with
the Boers withdrawn to new positions
Tuesday. News of fresh lighting is ex
pected at the war office, but none came
last night.
Gen. Rundles patrol had a skirmish wi.h
Boer vldettes again Wednesday. Some
wonder is expressed here as to what he
is doing with three divisions. It is as
sumed by some that Gen. Buller will move
into Orange River Colony and co-operate
with Lord Methuen and Gen. Rundle in
bagging President Steyo and his seven or
eight thousand followers.
Part of Christian Botha's force has halt
ed at Paardekop, eighteen miles northwest
of Voikrust. Boer parties are stiil near
Volkrust and fire occasionally upon tho
British pickets.
The British government Is considering
whether a substantial force should not
be sent to China from South Africa. It
is thought officially that Lord Roberts
could spare a brigade or two and the nec
essary transports are now in South Afri
can waters. The commander of the expe
dition, it is said, would probably be Gen.
Sir William Nicholson. A dispatch from
Lourenzo Marques, dated yesterday, says:
"Persons have arrived here who have
seen the preparations of the Boers and
learn that they will retire, when forced,
through the Lydenburg district, intr> the
Zoutpansberg region, adjoining Rhode
sia and Gazaland."
The Daily Mail has a dispatch from
Bloemfontein, dated Wednesday, saying:
"Gen. Dewet's attack upon the railway
was made after he had succeeded in lur
ing Lord Methuen from where he had de
stroyed the line. Then he cleverly seized
It north of KrodnstaU, blew up the t>ri<!;'••
and destroyed a long section of the line
with dynamite."
BADEN-POWELL PROMOTED.
Maj. Gen. Baden-Pgwell baa been ap
pointed to the rank of lieutenant general.
Th« Cape Town correspondent r>f the
Daily Telegraph, in a dispatch, dated ye
i terday, says:
"I learn lhat Gen. Dewet, in addition
to the Derbyshire battalion, captured two
companies of the city volunteers and two
companies of yeomanry, two men only
escaping to tell the tale."
The Lourenzo Marques correspondent of
the Times says:
"It appears tha: Steyn, and not Kruger,
is now the stumbling block ir. the way of
the surrender of the burghers. Shortly
after the British entry into Pretoria Mr.
Kruger proposed to reopen the peace ne
gotiations. Mr. Steyn, bearing in mind
I that his former advice was scouted, de
murred to this and pointed out that, ac
cording to the treaty between the repub
lics, neither eoald conclude peace with
out the other. ' Mr. Kruger, equally un
willing to im ur the charge of a breach of
faith, had to continue the war. Nothing
further is known regarding the rumored
peace negotiations, but it Is a ma.; ter of
notoriety that Mr. Kruger favored peace
on almost any trims, but did not like
personally to take an initiative thait would
Involve unconditional surrender. Ninety
seven burghers out of 200 in one com
mando have returned to their homts."
PTGILISTIC WARRIOR CAtJOHT.
A dispatch from Kimber^ey reports the
capture of the well-known pu^i'.ist. "JiTi"
Holloway, who was an adjutant in th;
Boor army, and who b!ew up the bridge
at Fourteen Streams. Holioway was

western part <>f the Transvaal.
The Afrikanderbund congress opened

Including seven assemblymen, present.
DEFEAT THE BOERS.
The war office has received the follow
ing dispatch from Lord Roberts:
"Pretoria, June 15.—As I telegraphed
I yesterday from one of our outposts, lif,
--j teen milea east of Pretoria, the Boers
evacuated their position during the nig'nt
of June 12. They had paid so much at
tention to strengthening their (If uk- that
their center was weakly held, anil as soon
as this became evident, on June 32, 1 di
rected lan Hamilton to attack them at
that point. He moved against Diamond
Hill with the Suffolks, Derbyshire* and
City Imperial volunteers, supported on
the left by the Guards brigade on Inigo
Jones.
"It was grand seeing the way our m-n
advanced over the difficult ground, and
under a heavy fire.
"The casualties, I am thankful to say,
were less than 100, a very small number
considering the natural strength of the
position which had to be carried.
"Our seizure of Diamond Hill caused
the Boers to feel they were practically
i surrounded, and this resulted in thtlr
hasty retirement. They were being fol
lowed yesterday by some of our mounted
corps.
I "Hamilton Upoke in high terms of the
PRICE TWO CENTS-J S?vK rS3fe t .
troops engaged. Hamilton received a con
tusion from a shrapnel bullet In the shoul
der, but Is not, I am happy to nay, un
able to perform his duty. '
The rest of Lord Roberts' dispatch deals
with the casualties and (ion. BaJ»n-Pow
ell's movement in Western Transvaal,
where Baden-Powell, with 800 men, is sys
tematically establishing order and 10;
--leeting arms and Bupplies. About 609
Boers have surrendered, and Baden Pow
ell raptured 230 prisoners. According to
Baden-Powell's report, the Boers will
readily discuss terms of surrender, and
they all appreciate the work of pacifica
tion performed by his troops.

PHILADELPHIA, June 15. - Specula
tion, gossip and iiTTormal conferences to
day among national commJtteemcn and
other leading Republicans who are here
has failed to Indicate a crystallisation of
sentiment around any Individual. Neither
Senator Haxma nor those who are close
to him give any Intimation that the ad
ministration has a choice.
The Dumber of delegates who will vote
for any man that the administration fa
vors seem to accentuate the general Im
pression that the nominee will be the man
most acceptable to the president.
"If you would take us Into your confi
dence In thiri matter It would simplify
matters and help ua greatly," said one
prominent Republican to Senator Hanna
today.
The senator replied: "You know all I
know."
Senator Plan's talk of Odell, of Now
York, caused a little flutter here, and Dol-
Uver stock took an upward turn about
the same time, the cause being the lm
lon that in case Odell should be
■ 1 by New York i lit i>- would be a
concentration on the lowa man by tho.su
who do not favor the New York man.
The candidacy of Lieut. Qov Woodruff,
of New York, who arrived today, Is allll
bei^g kept in evidence by Ms friends, but
without apparently any booking from tho
Republican manager*! and wvth the dis
tinct disapproval of Senator Hanna,
When questioned tonight regarding the
statement made by Senator llaimu, to
the effect that Mr, \v lruff was not a
satisfactory candidate for the \li' i
demy, the latter :-ald:
"Had i any Intimation from the admin
istration that my Candidacy wa not de
sirable I w.u'd not have allowed my
frl« nds to support me to ttu extent they
have."
Woodruff was asked if he would
continue as ;■ nt of
the New Yoik delegation failing to sup
port him. To this he ren)l< d:
