CRISIS I iiiS IT IS PRONOUNCED THE GRAVEST THAT HAS EVER OCCURRED IN THE ORIENT OPINION OF A PARISIAN Mnn Who Hum Studied Chinese Problem lic'icves the Outcome of the Present Trouble Will Be Startling. Copyrighted by the Associated Press. PARIS, June 16.—News of fighting be tween the European troops and the Box ers has enhanced the interest in the. situation in China, which is forming the leading feature of all the newspapers. The diplomatic world is equally stirred. c pecially owing to the contradictory re- I ports regarding the altitude taken by the empress dowager. EJven the Japanese and Chinese delegations appear doubtful as to the exact condition of affairs. At the Chinese legation much uneasint s» prevails. The explanation given by the j officials are that the Boxers are simply j outlaws, with no recognition from the government, and are ill treating their own countrymen as well as foreigners. The Chinese officials admit guardedly that the general situation in China is hardly satisfactory and there is room there for beneficial reforms, but they are far from pleased at the recent develop ments which will give Russia ail oppor tunity to play wnat will be a predomi nating part In interventi tl. The Japanese ambassador.

He forms the topic of daily articles m the Krenc.'; press, which discuss his mode of living and the day's doings. With Oriental disregard of time he kept the official wond at Contrexville waiting three days after the official date before he arrived. The papers say the shah creates wonuerment by having the whole course of his meals served to him at one time and dipping into them in dis regard of general rules. His genual de meanor and kindly actions have made a jnost favorable impression. DUE TO 11, L LUCK. The victory of the French contestant In ihe automobile race appears to be due as much to American ill luck as to French superiority. Mr. Wlnton was only three seconds behind the winning auto car aad was gaining, when, owing to a bad light he miscalculated his speed in rounding an awkward corner with the result that one of the front wheels struck an embank ment and the axle was badly bent. Mr Winton struggled on but eventually see ing that his efforts were hopelesi h e aban doned the race. He has no comp aint whatever against the m.magem. Nt or the conditions of the race and is confident that but for the accident lie would have finished well. He is not discouraged and j will make another attempt when the op portunity offers.

Iffi I fill US SO ASSERTED THE CHINESE AM BASSADOR IBT AN INTERVIEW AT BERLIN REVOLT HAS BEEN MAGNIFIED This Opinion Is Shared in by Cier inan Diplomats—Foreign Office Itofu.st'K to Believe Government Is Pa-rty to Their Crimes. Copyrighted by Associated Press. BERLIN, June 16.—The correspondent here of the Associated Press saw the Chinese ambassador at Berlin today. Through an interpreter, he said: "I have no news from the Chinese government about the Boxers' rebellion. The Boxers are a mere rabble, disturb ers, thieves and rascals. There are no scholars, mandarins or officials among I them. The reports that the Chinese sol- ! diers attacked the international forces | cannot be true. The empress opposes the j Boxers and the troops could not act j against her. The Boxers will soon be ; suppressed. They could have been sup-| pressed by the Chinese troops without the j aid of the international forces. The em bassies could have been protected by guards of Chinese if the embassies had asked for them." The above information was readily and self-coniainedly given. The latest official government news from Tien Tsin, dated the 15th, is viewed i at the foregn office as corroborative of | the reports that the situation has been Intensified during the week. The foreign office refuses to believe that the Chinese govarnmnt makes common cause with the Boxers, and does not believe the Ch: troops attacked the international forces, as "that would be too crazy a venture." The opening today of the Elbe-Trave canal with great ceremonious pageantry in the presence of the emperor and cab inet and delegates from cities through out Germany is one step forward. The canal has a length of forty-one miles, a width of thirty-two meters, of which twenty-two to twenty-three are on the bottom, a depth of two to two and a naif meters and cost 50,000,000 marks, of which I.uebeck pays 17,500,000 marks and Prussia 7,500,000 marks. Vessels of 800 tons, such as. for bulk, the Elbe vessels, will navigate thereon. There will be several intermediary harbors, of which the principal one will be at Moellen. The canal will revivify the internal and for eign trade of the old city of Luebeck, and transportation from the Austrian and German towns on the Kibe will be greatly cheapened and facilitated by it. DEPARTMENT STORE BILL. T he department store bill will come up in the diet Monday, but it is doubtful it it wi'l puss now owing to obstructive tac tics However, it is certain the diet will adjourn during the. course of the coming week. During the summer the session hall, which wa.s only recently finished, will be reconstructed at an expense of 220,000 marks, because its acoustics are abominable. Recently the lower employes of the Prussian railways have shown an in clination to affiliate with the Socialist party, and have evinced in every way dissatisfaction with present salaries and conditions. The official Berliner Corres pondenz today publishes a formal warn ing, threatening the employes with sum mary discharge. In anticipation of the main legislative topic or' the coming fall, namely, the readjustment ot the German tariff, a vigorous agitation has set in in the press and rostrum. Besides tfeose recently men tion,.!, a mooting of high protectionisms will be held at the Kafc.erhoi June 19 and" 20, in favor of the raising of the duties, A prominent official declares tin re ha no (Joubi an autonomous tariff will be pro iiv the government, but also thai in the coming treaties there will be Qxed a minimal tariff which will be far as the reductions will go. Tins minimal tarift will be kept a secret. After this a series of preliminary negotiations for new commercial treaties with different eoun trii a will b.^in. it is significant that yes tertlay L>r. Miquel, the minister- of finance, in the diet, and replying to ob jections raised by Dr. Bartels, the Cen trist leader, said next session would see some Agrarian legislation.

BATHURST, Gambia Colony, West Africa, June 16.—A native rising has oc curred in the Gambia Colony and two British commissioners and six members of the police have been killed at Sann kanndi, on the south bank of the Gambia river, by Mandingoes. TALKED OF THE WAS. South Dakotau Tells of Sonth Afri can Einerienceci, SIOFX FALLS, S. D., June 16.-J,:hn Thomas, formerly a resident of Miner county, this state, who left some weeks ago for South Africa, where he has se cured a position as s.ation agent at Lains burg, Cape Colony, has written an inter esting letter to friends in this state in reference to incidents whi:h came under his observation while on his way to S mth Africa and other ma.ters in connect on with the war between the British and the Boers. His letter is in part as follows: "On the station platform at Southamp ton 1 saw some of the results ot the w. r. Two poor fellows, each with a leg off jut below the knee, and men going to the fiont all about the place, pies.niing b«h sides of the question. On the boat J heard a man playing 'Soldiers of the Queen' i n a cornet, and J learned thai he was "pJay- Ing off' the men that were go.ng to St. Helena to guard Cionje and his captuied men. That sams man has 'playtd eff every troopship that has left Southamp ton, and he can play fine. "We had a lot of yeomanry on cur bo-it going to. the front, also the Duk? of Nor folk and a lot of other notab es—a jelly lot of sports—and to see the duke going Into it with the rest of them was line fun for me. His first effort was the 'bolster light,' I don't suppose you know wh t that is. Just fancy a spar quite loujd. very smooth and about six inches thek nxed in the air about four feet lrcm the deck vith mattresses underneath.' Two men rit on this pole, as If riding a bare backi d horse, and they are given a riI- low apiece to lash each other off, and. mind you, they must not touch the po"e with their hands. "The duke won the first heat, but the second he had a third-class passenger on the spar with him. The third fellow was afraid to lash out at the duke be cause he could not keep his balance, so he kept jabbing his pillow into the duke's face, and jabbc-d him off the spar, but the next time the duke hit him down as flat as a pancake, and his antagonist returned the compliment with a jab in the jaw best two out of three. "Cape Town is a busy city now, and military at that; soldiers from the front and others going out to fight; some wounded, with their arms in slings, oth ers Jimping on two sticks, and still thr era limping about without sticks; soldiers with blue (government) envelopes in their hands, and all seem to be hurrying th« best way they can. "The railway official? sent me here— Lalnsburg—and three days ago I saw an ambulance train pass to Cape Town and ihe men looked frightful. Trains each way carry soldiers, but today the regiment that entered Lady smith- first with Gen. Buller passed through. They were going to join Roberts at BJocmfon t'iu and actid a.s if going to a picnic."

T)ORN In Monte Carlo, Violin Virtuoso in Paris, Ranchman in Arizona, This XJ Soldier of Fortune in Dahomey and Cuba Who Won a Red Cross Bride Now Yearns for Peace and Domestici*y in the Metropolis. New York Herald. Weary of bivouac and battle, Emille Cassi sighs for peace. "A Soldier in Algiers," a Rough Rider in Cuba, a political campaigner with Roosevelt in the Bowery, Cassi. roman tically married, now yearns for the qui etude of the domestic hearth. Cassi, best known to fame as the bugler of Roosevelt's Rough Riders, who was wounded ar San Juan that hot July morn ing, almost two years ago, is a musician by vocation, a soldier of fortune only by avocation. He has just arrived in New York after spending ten months in prison for killing- a Cuban soldier in front of the Hotel Inglaterra, at Havana. Cassi was a member of the Havana po lice force at the time, and shot the Cu ban in order to protect an unarmed man. Now, Cassi having been acquitted or pardoned, and having returned to New York, is anxious to get work. Governor Roosevelt has written Cassi cordial letters of praise for his courage and steadfastness, but Cassi regards these as strictly personal communica- ■ '■'■ ROUGH RIDER CASSI. tions, and will not think of 'presuming on the regard of his late commander to advance him rfow. ' "If any of niy comrades meet me and say, Vussi. I.have something for you to do,' I shall sj*y, 'thank you, sir,' but I must not a.sk for anything. No. I cannot do that." That is^the way this soldier puts the case. His life's story is full of thrilling in cidents, and the story of his marriage to a pretty Cuban girl, though New York born and bred, is delightfully romantic. "Sir, I do not wish to discuss that phase of my life," said Cassi, deprecatingly, "but I must acknowledge that she is lovely to look upon and sweet and ten der to me, a poor, worthless chap. She is of New York, too. sir, and I am an American citizen.. Of that we are both so very proud. She graduated from the Academy-of the Sacred Heart, of your city. Her father was a banker here, al so. But when the war broke out. sh« remembered her kinsmen in Cuba, and went to the front as a Red Cross nurse. It was thus we met." Cassi's dark eyes sparkled with en thusiasm. "You must know, too, sir, that she was a cousin of Gen. Demetrio Castillo, a name famous in Cuban revolu tionary annals. Well, she tended the sick and comforted the dying- as only a woman, and a good woman, can. When my wounded arm got well, I found my heart was wounded, and, and" —Cassi's dark cheeks glowed—"we had to become tent mates for life. Do you know that day when I shot that fellow at the Hotel Inglaterra there were standing about wit nesses who were to attend our wedding the next day?" "And the killing ups<u all your plans?" "Ah! no; not all. My wife Is a true heroine. The next day we were married just the same. Of course, so great was the excitement no local padre would unite vs—me in prison for shooting a Cuban and much natural jealousy of the Americans occupying positions like m-ne In Havana prevailing, so we had to have an American Catholic priest whom I had known when the Rough Riders were at San Antonio. He was a good friend, and readily agreed to make us both happy. I was kept there at police headquarters in two rooms until the prosecutor agreed to withdraw the charge against me if I would abandon my de fence. This was done. Then I was ad vised to leave Havana, but I could not run away at such a time. "So we lived there, to show them that I was not afraid. But I wanted to set tle down in the United States, and I liked New York, where a man can show what he can do, so I sailed first, because I knew I might bo detained at Quaran tine, while my wife is an immune and can come right through. She will be here Monday, 1 expect." Asked to tell his adventures in differ ent parts of the world, Cassi became si lent. "Oh. that is done; do not make me what you call a swashbuckler. I was born at Monte Carlo; perhaps the rest lessness was due to that. AH is s . changeable, so kaleidoscopic, at Monaco, you know. Music was my forte. I went to Paris and studied. As a violin virtu oso I was fortunate. Then I enlisted in the French Foreign Legion, and for two years saw service among the blacks in Dahomey. It was hard work. Exciting? Oh! yes; but when all's over, what of that?" "Then what did you do?" "Next I cam-? to New York. Here, as a musician, I did well, but my partner and comrade from the other side went Into another business and I drifted to San Francisco. There I became leader of an orchestra of twenty-four in one of the theaters. "Just about that tine I met 'Bucky' O'Neill. There was a splendid fellow— hea.rt too big for his body, big as that was. Nobody fait worse when he was killed at San Juan than I did. He was my firm friend and he'd go through fire and water for a friend. " 'Bucky' O'Neill urged me to go to Arizona, and I left 'Frisco and became a plainsman. 'Bucky' made ras 'an Ameri can, too. I lived four years in the South west and took out my citizen's papers and swore allegiance to the Stars and Stripes. 'P.iieky' was intensely patriotic, you know, and everybody around the J. NY. Clark place, at Jerome, had to take off his sombrero to the flag night and morn ing or 'Bucky' would know the reason why. "Well, one day Bucky said I must or ganize a brass band, so the colors could bo hoisted to the 'Star-Spangled Banner' in regular fashion. T got up a band and ther rani.' the war excit< n "Bucky said wo must all go to Cub.i and wipe the Spaniards ofl the earth. 1 was to be leader of the band that the cowboys expeel d to head the Rough Riders, but Brodie there was no time to get 11 drilled and w-i hurried to San Antonio, v Wood and Lieut Ccl.

Then a bullet ploughed into my wrist on July 2, and put me cut of action. Th» woi that is I can't play the violin any i "After Santiago we cam..' back with Col.
