— or the — GiTY OF ST. PAUL. VOL. XXIV.-ISO. 80. 111 l PRESIDENT M'KINLEY LISTENED TO ORDERS YESTERDAY FROM RINGMASTER* HANNA ORDINARY PEOPLE SHUT OUT SECRETARIES ROOT AND GAGE WERE IXABLE TO OBTAIN AN AUDIENCE OHIO SLATE IS COMPLETED And Stamped With Mark Hanna'* Official Seal—Prediction of Two Coming Changes In the ' . Cabinet. WASHINGTON. March 20.-The presi dent was fairly besieged with callers to •iay. Senator Burrows and McMillan, of Michigan, called to file a caveat on the vacancy in the civil service commission created* by the death of Mr. Brewer. They have not yet selected a candidate, but believed the place should go to Michi gan. Within a short time they expect to recommend a candidate. Representatives Hitt, Fester, Foss and J. R. Williams, of Illinois; Rucker and Benton, of Missouri; Jones, of Washing ton, and Minor of Wisconsin, saw the president on behalf of ex-Representative Rodenhnrg's candidacy for a place on the St. Louis exposition commission. The contest is understood to have narrowed down to a choice between Mr. Rodeii burg and Cyrus Northrop, of Minnesota ]t is understood the commission will be named during the present week. Senator Hanna and Representatives Grosvenor and Dick, of Ohio, had a very extended conversation wltn tne president. They were closeted wth him for almost t\\<> hoars. Senator Foiaker called dur ing the progress of the conference, but remained only a short time. The impor tance of the consultation may be judged by the fact that Secretaries Root and Gage, who had business with President McKlnley, after waiting for some time, returned to their respective departments. THE OHIO SLATE COMPLETED. The consultation between the Ohio Re publican leaders and the president cov ered a number of questions, national as veil as state, but was largely confined, ii is understood, to the political situa tion in Ohio. At the conference a num ber of Ohio army appointments and sev eral other appointments were discussed. The president's trip to the Pacitic coast also was talked about. The Ohio delega tion In congress is to gi to San Fran?isco to be present at the launching of the bat tleship Ohio, and Gen. Grosvenor is go ing to New York tonight to make ar rangements. It was decided today that Gov. Nash and most of the present officials of the state should be renominated this autumn, and also that Senator Foraker should he indorsed by the state convention for re election. TWO CABINET PLACES. It is understood on high authority that the president has decided to appoint Mr. P.- C. Knox, of Pitts-burg, to till the va cancy in his cabinet that will be caused by the retirement of Attorney General Griggs on April 1. The Daily Chieftan, of PueMo, will say tomorrow, says a special dispatch: "It is definitely known here that ex- Benator Edward O. Wolcott, of Colorado, •will in a few days be appointed by the president to be secretary of the interior, to succeed Ethan A. Hitchcock, of Mis smri. "The news has been received by a friend of Mr. Wolcott in this city, the statement being made unequivocally, «n --dicating that the announcement will he made in Washington tomorrow."

EASTON, Minn., March 20.—(Special.)— 1A severe snow storm prevailed here all last night and today, although the weather is not cold. All trains from the Kast are from two to four hours late. CALEDONIA, Minn., March 20.—(Spe cial.)—The worst storm of the winter has prevailed since Tuesday morning, snow ing continuously for twenty-four hours, f.ikl blowing a gale from the northeast. Look for zero temperature in the morn ing. Roads blockaded and trains late. BLACK RIVER FALLS, "Wis., March 20.—(Special.)—The severest snow storm of the season, at times a veritable bliz zard, has raged over this section of the state for the past twenty-four hours. Over a foot of snow has fallen and all business in the county is^ suspended. Drifts ten feet high along the rural free delivery routes are reported. OSHKOBH, WiP., March 20.—The sleet Btorm of last night and the snow storm of today have practically isolated Osh kosh from the rest of the world as far as wire communication is concerned. Traffic on the Citizens' Traction was sus- I^nded several hours. The loss in the City will reach many thousands of dol lar?, which will probably be augmented by the driving blizzard that Is now in progress and bids fair to last all night. SIOUX CITY, 10., March 20.—Train service on all railways between here and Chicago was badly crippled today as a result of the blizzard south and east of Sioux City. The wind attained a veloc ity of sixty miles an hour. BELOIT, Wis., March 20.—Rock river reached high water mark this afternoon. Tonight the water is receding. Damage was done by the, flooding of basements. ' GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., March 20.— All trains on the Grand Rapids & Indi ana, Pere Marquelte and Michigan Cen tral railways north of Cadillac to the Straits of Mackinac, are again at a com plete standstill. The sleet storm and a heavy wind which prevailed in that ter ritory yesterday and last night not only as.;in Mocked the wheels by drifting the snow and freezing it, but •'severed all communication as well with the weight of ice which formed on the telegraph wires, breaking them in a number of places. THE ST. PAUL GLOBE CORNWALL AT GIBRALTAR DUKE AND DICHESS INSPECTED THE ROCK YESTERDAY. GIBRALTAR, March 20. -The steamer Ophir, with the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York on board, entered the harbor about 9 o'clock. All the ships in port had previously been dressed, and the royal yacht approached through the fleet, fully manned and with guards of honor, and bands paraded amidst salutes of guns, the tiring of a royal salute and the strains of the national anthem. The Ophir reports a fair passage. All on board are in good health. The royal party landed at the dock yard at noon. They were received by Gen. Sir Henry White, the governor. The duke and duchess then drove to the Chamber of Commerce, where they were presented with an address of welome. "We % regard," said the duke, --this hearty greeting at our first place of land ing as a happy augury for that great mission with which we have been in trusted by my father—the king—in ful fillment of the wishes of our late beloved sovereign, whose loss the whole world mourns." The duke and duchess spent the day in visiting the docks and other points of interest, after which they dined at Gov ernor's house, where the dinner pat - numbered 150. They held a reception in the ball room, at which the duchess was presented, with a magnificent Spanish mantilla, the gift of the inhabitants. At 11 p. m. their royal highnesses drove through the town to view the illumina tions, returning to the Ophir shortly be fore midnight. All through the evening the warships in the harbor were brilliant ly lighted. AT THE BOILING POINT CHARGES OP CORRUPTION HANDED ABOUT IN GERMAN REICHSTAG. BERLIN, March 20.-During the debate today in the reichstag over the home of fice estimates, there arose a heated pas sage at arms between Herr Bebel the Socialist leader, and other Social Demo crats, on one side, and Dr. Stoeker Con servative, and others, on the other side Kerr Rebel's attack was occasioned by criticism yesterday on vne part of Dr. Stoecker. The discussion continued for several hours and was very heated and Uiu'oarous. Altogether the sitting was the liveliest of the whole session, members being call ed to order by the score. This was not only the case during the long tussle be tween Dr. Stoecker and the Socialists, but also when the question of armor plate was again discussed. Count yon Kardoff assumed that the Stumm works had never furnished American armor plate. The Krupps, he admitted, did sell cheaper to the United States than to Germany, but only because the United States order ed 7,500 tons as against 2,700 ordered by Germany. Moreover, it is possible that the United States plates were inferior. Herr yon Singer charged Count yon Kardoff with being a Krupp agent, and went so far as»to suggest that the count might be netting 4 per cent. RUSSIAN SUGAR BOUNTY TEST CASE ON SIR. GaGE'S COIX- TERVAILIXG DUTY. NEW YORK, March £o.—The protest of Gustav A. Jahn & Co. against the as sessment of countervailing duty on a lot of Russian sugar imported by them, was sent from the custom, ho L>se to the board of United States general appraisers in the public stores toduy, and the next thing in order will be a hearing before the board of classification of the general appraisers. The sugar in question was produced and refined in Russia, although it was shipped via Hamburg. There were 3,088 bags in the lot. and the invoice value was $15,359, the regular, that is ordinary duty, as determined by polarlscopic tests, was $13,016. The countervailing duty as sessed was $4,827. The regular and extra duty together thus excred the invoice value of the sugar. The question to be passed upon by tne beard of classification is as to whether the payment made by the Russian gov ernment when the sugar was exported was in reality a bounty as coming within the meaning, of the act, or was merely a rebate of taxes formerly paid. HIS CASE CONTINUED. TECHNICAL FLAW IN COMPLAINT AGAINST JAMES C'ALLAHAN. OMAHA, Neb., March 20.—0n motion of the county attorney', the trial of James Callahan, in connection of the abduction of young Cudahy, was postponed until April 1. No reasons were given by the prosecution for its motion. Later it was announced that the prose cution had asked for a continuance be cause of a technical flaw' in the com plaint, which it was claimed was tiled irregularly. This may prove fatal to the prosecution. New compfatnts are to tee filed at once, but this will require the rearraignment of Callahan in both the county and district courts, which will take considerable time, probably several weeks, and may secure his dismissal. That Callahan is preparing for a vigorous defense is shown by a list of witnesses his attorneys filed this morning, on whom he asks summons. There are a dozen of them, including Pat Crowe and John Crowe, his brother, and the attorneys for the defense say there are several others to be secured before the trial comes up again. IN THE BIG STEEL TRUST NINETY PER CENT OF STOCK OF CONSTITUENT COMPANIES ;.-.'.' ...TURNED IN. NEW YORK, March 20.— J. P. Morgan & Co., the syndicate managers of the United States steel corporation, have, un der date of March 21, sent a letter to the stockholders of the constituent com panies informing them that the ft.?je for depositing the common and preferred stocks, which expired by limitation to day, had been extended until and includ ing April 1 -next. In the circular It is declared that over 90 per cent of each of the issues of the various stocks has thus far been deposit ed in accordance with the terms of the managers. The extension is granted b*. cause it was found physically impossible by many of the shareholders to deposit their certificates within the time origin** ly named. IN MINNESOTA, TOO. WINONA KIDNAPING THREATENED UNLESS Sf?SOO IS FORTHCOMING . WINONA, Minn.. March 20.—(Special.)— Barney Olson this evening received a letter signed "Dirty Dozen of Kansas City", demanding $500 cash by Saturday if he does not wish his brother George kidnapped. Directions are given for plac ing the money in a barrel behind a cigar store. The fact that the letter bears a Winano postmark seems to indicate it is a iosh, but Olson has reported the mat ter to the police. THURSDAY MORNING, MARCH 21, 1901. a ■ in i J. L. GREATSINGER, OF DI'LDTH, MADE PRESIDENT OF BROOK LYN RAPID TRANSIT HE SUCCEEDS C. L. ROSSITER LATTER'S INPOFI I.ARITY WITH THE COMPANY'S EMPLOYES CAISED THE CHANGE HAS WORKED HIS OWN WAY UP In Also President of Dulnth & Iron Rangre and Minnesota Iron Com panies—Started as a Loco motive Fireman. NEW YORK, March 20.—At a special meeting of the board of directors of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit and the Brook lyn Heights Railway companies today. Clinton L. Rossiter, presented his resig nation as president and director of the two companies. The resignation was ac cepted and J. L. Greatsinger, president of the Duluth & Iron Range railway, was elected president and director to fill the vacancies caused by Mr. Ros siter's resignation. Mr. Greatsinger, the new president, was born in Elmira, N. Y. He began ra I road life on the Erie, fring switch en gines. Later he served in almost every capacity up to manager of the various railroad properties composing the o!d I'tica, Ithaca and Elmira road. In ISfifi he went west and accepted the place of master mechanic of what is now the Chicago & Eastern lliinois Railway com pany. Two years later lie became master mechanic of the Duluth & Iron Range railroad and was soon promoted to the post of general superintendent. In 18&3 he was elected president of the railway which position he has since occupied. In December last he succeeded D. if." Bacon as president of the Minnesota Iron company and of its constituent com panies. ASSOCIATED WITH H. H. PORTER. TrTrhueh of his railroad experience Mr. Greatsinger has been identified with H, H. Porter, chairman of the executive committee and board of directors of the Federal Steel company. Mr. Porter, who is an old railroad an.l traction man, recently became more actively ielentified with the Brooklyn Rapid Transit company, although he has been active in its affairs ever since the late Roswell p. Flower consolidated tho various roads. According to gossip in Wall sti'eet, Mr. Porter recently became convinced that Mr. Rossiter's withdrawal would be for the best Interests of the stockholders. At the same time it was declared that Mr. Rossiter's ability had never been ques tioned. The fault, it was said, lay in the fact that Mr. Rossiter had, by his course, created a hostile sentiment among the employes anel this feeling, it was further declared, could best be obliterated by the appointment of another man. Further more, Mr. Rossiter on several occasions had asked the directors to be relieved of the presidency, saying that he was in need of a rest. All these facts are said to have been potent in bringing about the change. WRECK AT STILLWATER MILWAUKEE TRAIN DERAILED, HUT NO ONE INJURED. STILLWATER, Minn., March 20.-(Spe cial.) —One of the most fortunate railroad wrecks ever occurring in this vicinity happened on the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul road at South Stillwater tonight. The passenger train leaving here in charge of Engineer Gale and Conductor Royce was derailed by a broken flange and both coaches and the tender left the track. Part of the locomotive ran to the South Stillwater depot before being stopped. ..The train carried a .large num ber of passengers, but no one was in jured. The coaches were slightly injur ed, but were not lifted from the trucks. The wrecking crew arrived at 11:30. ARMING FOR THE FRAY WEST VIRGIXIA KILLING IS LIKE- LV TO START A FEUD. ELKINS, Va., March 20.—A feud, it is feared, will arise over the shooting anJ killing yesterday of Benj Ilaldeman at the lumber camp at Weaver, five miles west of here, by Payton Stopes, a boy of twenty. Haldeman had the reputation of being the terror of Weaver and of Uur bin, at both of which settlements he was said to have run "Speak-easies." Me is also credited with having whipped a dozen men in as many encounters so severely that they nearly died. Men on both sides, it is reported, began arming immediately after the tragedy, and a bloody clash between the factions is fear, cd. • '' ■ .' ■ ■■ ■...- - . ■ . - ■*"*""" , -■■"• ■ f*H-: --T-■•.'■".'.■-.!" .'.■-■-.>■ ■ - "-r*" . , - :"'"^ ._."".- NO BREAK IN THE NEBRASKA DEADLOCK CAUCUS NOMINATION OF D. E. THOMPSON TI ESRAY NIGHT AVAS NOT RATIFIED. LINCOLN, Neb., March 20.-Eighteen ballots were taken without a nomination at the Republican long term senatorial caucus tonight. The caucus shortly be fore 11 o'clock adjourned lintil tomorrow night. The final ballot resulted: Rose water, 32; Meiklejohii, 15; ♦Ourrie, 8. The attendance varied from lifty to fifty-five, the fourteen members who re mained out last night being again ab sent. The contest, apparently has settled down to a test of strength! between Ed ward Kosewater and George D. Meikle jchn. a devoted few clinging to state Senator Frank M. Currie, who has not however, the balance of power under rules requiring forty-five to nominate. The supporters of D. .E. Thompson, nominated last night for the short term, are believed to be about equally divided between Rosewater and Meiklejohn. Friends of Mr. Rosewater assert that under, the agreement which made last night's caucus possible, Mr. Thompson cannot claim an election in the legis lature even if that should happen until both senators are named. Part of Mr. Thompson's following "will not concur in this opinion, but they soy they are will ing to allow a reasonable length of time for the long term deadlock to end before pressing the election of Thompson In joint convention. D. E. Thompson, of Lincoln, who was last night nominated for United States senator for the short term, by the Re publican caucus, failed of election by the joint session of the house and senate today. The Wilkinson caucus, under the rules of which Thompson was nominated, adjourned without nominating a candi date for the long term, thereby invali dating the nomination it already ha>l made. The caucus call provided that both senators should be nomttiated at the same session. Failing to do this, the whole work of the caucus was without effect. Another caucus has been called" for 8:20 this evening. Today's ballot shows much change from those recently taken. Rosewatar secured nearly twice the number of votes he has at any time polled, while D. E. Thompson reached his high mark. The ballot: Allen, 54; W. K. Thompson, 42; Hitchcock, 14; Hinshaw, 4; D. E. Thomp son, 56; Rosewater, 29; Meiklejohn, 20; Crouse, 10; Currie 9; Martin', 9; scattering, 3; necessary to choice, 6s. BAD FOR NEGRO VOTERS MARYLAND'S NEW ELECTION LAW SHUTS OIT ILLITERATES. ANNAPOLIS, Md., March 20.—The new election bill, having for }ts object the practical disfranchisement of most of the 50,000 illiterate voters of tlie state, passed the senate shortly after midday. It was immediately sent to the house where all the amendments made by the senate were concurred in and the bill passed. It is now ready for the governor's sig nature. The most important change in existing methods accomplished by the enactment of.the new law, lies In depriving illiterate voters of the assistance of ballot clerks in preparing their ballot's. Under the previous practice these clerks accompanied such voters into the bojoth and marked their ballot forms for them, or showed them how to do it. The Democrats claim .that this practice utterly destroyed the' secrecy of the bal lot and made it possible for corruption ists to learn whether bargains made with corrupt voters had been carried out.. The effect of the law is, of course, large ly a matter of conjecture and one upon which the party leaders widely differ. The Democrats expect that it will dis franchise about 32,000 negroes and per haps 16,000 white Voters. Of these, it is claimed all the negroes and about 50 per cent of the whites votes the Republican ticket. With these out of the way, it is held, the state will be safely Democratic for many years to come and the imme diate result would be a Democratic, legislature next fall aQtl the election of s Democrat to succeed United States Senator Wellington in ISO 2. FIXED BY TBE TRUST. HOW PRICE OF 1RO!« OJ*E IS TO BE ADJUSTED. PITTSBURG, March 20.—A large and representative meeting of iron manufact urers will- take place at Cleveland next Wednesday for the purpose of adjusting the prices on ore for the next twelve months. All the largest manufacturers in the country will be represented. This meeting will be the first at which rep resentatives of the United States Steel company will be present. Most of the prominent independents will also attend the gathering. It is expected to have the base price of iron ore settled before ad journment. The base price, aeaording to the best information on "old range 1' bessemer ore, which takes in the Marquette, Ale nominee, Gogebie and Vermillion ranges, will be between $5 50 and $5.75. This Is an advance over last year's price of about 25 cents per ton. A TAIL OF WHOA. U1 111 FRENCH TROOPS AT MARSEILLES HAD THEIR HANDS FULL } YEISTERDAY CAVALRY CHARGED RIOTERS SEVERAL. SOLDIERS WERE IN JURED BY STONES THROWN BY r THE MOB TRADE IS LEAVING THE PORT Merchants Fear the Commercial Im portance of MarseilleM Will Be Destroyed If Strike of Dock: Laborers Continue**. MARSEILLES, March 20.—The situa tion here is very disquieting owing to the increasingly aggressive attitude of the strikers. During the disorders today the panic spread to the towns people and stores, restaurants and cafes were hurriedly closed. The Rue de La Cannebiere and the other leading thoroughfares of the city were deserted. It was feared that the mob, which was charged by mounted gendarmes and hussars, would attempt to pillage. A crowd numbering 2,000 bu:*st through a cordon of inrantry along the dock side. The cavalry charged ami drove the strikers back. A volley of stones was then thrown in all directions, and a brigadier, two gendarmes,' a hus sar and several infantrymen were injur ed. One gendarme was stunned, thrown from his horse and trampled upon by the cavalry. He was removed to a hospital, where he lies in a critical condition. The soldiers were greatly exasperated, but their officers succeeded In controlling them. The strikers are irritated at the refusal of the premier, M. Waldeck-Rousseau. to receive the Socialist mayor of Marseilles, ,M. Flassieres, who sought to obtain gov ernment pressure to force the masters to negotiate, the masters having declined to do so on the ground that the strike was unjustif.able and a breach of previous agreement. MAYOR SIDES WITH STRIKERS. M. Flassieres threatened that the So cialists will make reprisals for this in sult from the government, and he points out that he stood aloof from the pro- Kruger demonstration at a moment when, as he puts it, by entering Mr. Kruger's carriage, he might have won a popular triumph. Two hundred women, several witft babies in arms, took part in today's dem onstration in spite of the rain. With the exception of the Socialist organs, the press shows little sympathy with the strikers. The public generally recognizes that the strike has already done an im mense amount of injury, and may com pletely ruin the port. The government is in an extremely em barrassing position, especially M. Mil lerand, the minister of commerce, as the Socialists demand that the government should intervene in favor of the strikers, and are disgruntled at the employment of troops. On the other hand, the govern ment is urged" to take vigorous measures to secure the freedom of labor, especial ly In view of the fact that the foreign element, chiefly Italian, which prepon derates among the striking dock laborers, is utterly indifferent to the fate of Mar seilles. The strike committee has informed the prefect that the strikers will resume work if the co-operative system without contractors, is adopted. As the shipping companies are bound by existing con tracts there is little chance of this pro posal being accepted. Mayor Flassieres reports the population to be calm. FOR RICHARDSON MURDER TALE OF SECRET INDICTMENTS AGAINST TWO BESIDES THE * "WIFE SAVANNAH, Mo., March 20.—A story is in circulation here to the effect tnat sealed indictments were returned by the special grand jury against two men for the murder of Millionaire Frank Rich ardson, who was killed at the door of his wife's bed room on «the night of Dec. 24. It is said that the indictments will not be made public until after Mrs. Addle i-t. Richardson, who was recently indicted for murder in the first degree, has been tried for the crime. It is alleged that Mrs. Richardson will give evidence against the two men if she is acquitted of the charge on which she has been indicted. Had the indictments been made public, and the two men ar rested when Mrs. Richardson was In dicted, she could not, it is argued, have testified against them without turning state's evidence and sharing in their pun ishment. Mrs. Richardson is to be tried on May 27. >—Detroit Tribunew ' PRICE TWO GENTS-) BVSTft* BULLETIN OF IMPORTANT NEWS OF THE DAY. ;£ Weather Forecast for St. Paul: Fair; Warmer. I—With the Bis Bonn.

TROOPS UNDER "ARMS PEKIN, March 20.-The British rein forcements consisting of ninety marines which arrived at: Tien Tsin last night from the Taku forts to replac, the Indian guards on the disputed land are explained as due to a fear lest any incident arising out of the Russo-British land question should cause the French troops, whose conduct has given much Sh?£k PreciPitate a collision.

RUSSIAN PRESS CONSERVATIVE. ST. PETERSBURG, March 20.-The Russian press is not alarmed about the Tien Tsin affair. There is no mentlo i of it in the official agencies' dispatches but the London correspondent of the Novoe \remya characterizes the dispute as un important. Another London correspondent quotes a French diplomat as siaying that an Anglo- Russian war is impossibl?, and Russia need only threaten to support the Boers to bring Great Britain to her knees. The Novosti advocates a Russ (-Jap anese alliance which will assure Jnpan her present possessions and a large mar ket for her industrial products in Russian territory, where they will be protected against Anglo-German competition. In conclusion the article declares this al liance is as important in the Orient as the Franco-Russian alliance is in the Occident. The Novosti apparently does not men tion American competition In Russian territory* which is stronger than the An gle-German competition. THINK ENGLAND MUST YIELD. BERLIN, March 20.—in German official circles it is asserted that British ani Rus sian guards still occupy the land in con troversy at Tien Tsin. and that a satis factory adjustment of the matter may be expected. The press does not consider the Tien Tsin incident vital. All the papers ex press a belief that Great Britain will yield. The Vossische Zeitung says that England cannot now afford to engage in a serious conflict with Russia. The Kreuz Zeitung, which takes a simi lar view, adds: "It would tetieed be de plorable, if from a mere local controversy there Should grow up Bcrtoua diftculties, because that would induce the Chinese :o show greater powe;s of resistance." In an able weekly review the Kreuz Zeitung mentions a series of Russian ad vances in the far East, ir.clud ng the ac quisition of territory at Hankow, by means of which Russia invaded the Yang Tse district, adding: "All this England has had to endure because the South African war paralyzes her aggressive powers." CAN'T AGREE ON INDEMNITIES. WASHINGTON, March 20.—Another communication was received today from Special Commissioner Rockhill, touching the complications that have resulted at Pekin from the efforts of various powers to reach a uniform basis for their in demnity claims, but there is nothing to indicate that an agreement is any near er than it was when this subject was first taken up by the ministers. It is stated that the sum total of the indemnities claimed by all nations can not be calculated at this moment, be cause of the lack of agreement among the powers on the basis of settlement. But assuming that the other powers aro willing to accept the scheme of a judg ment proposed by the United States al lowing a certain amount for each mis sionary killed or Injured, and another allowance for property destroyed, the sum total of the claim would be con siderably less than $250,000,000. It is not doubted that under economical adminis tration with order completely restored and with free access to the interior of China, the Chinese revenues would be able to meet this charge against them within a reasonable time. But-it appears almost hopeless now to expect the other powers to accept the same basis of compensation that would satisfy the United States government. Not only is there a bast difference in the scale of these demands based on^mill tary experiences, »but there also is a radical difference of opinion as to the treatment of the native Christians, who have suffered in person and property by the Boxers and it is iJt-lieved that if this element is to be treated with the liberality* proposed by some of the European nations, the-indemnities claim ed would be nearly $£00,000,000 in the tig- . gresrate, aft amount, it is declared, Quite beyond the ability of China to meet.
