Whatever may lie tho present atti tude of the powers of the world in rela tion to the Chinese troubles, it can not be denied that the news of the last few days has been decidedly encouraging. It has cod firmed this government in its declared intention to act independently of the other nations and the develop ment of unquestioned sentiment in tho Chinese Empire, favorablo to foreigners, has led to tho suggestion of a possible co-operation between the forces of tho United States and those ot tho imperial government? While at ilrst this might appear to bo a startling announcement, it is entirely in line with a professed belief on thu part of this government that the Chi nese troubles arise solely from an insur rection, the proportions of which have caused it to pass beyond the control of the imperial government. 1 1 the develop ments of tho next fow days and tho work of this government through Minister Wu should result in a union between the American forces on Chinese soil and a Chine'! imperial army, an entirely new problem would bo presented to the for eign powers and the United States could fuakfi a coup dVtat that would be cn-lin-ly coiiHiirtent with our announced policy mid at the same time would effec tually block the ambitious plans of tho rial I'.fia for the diHiucmlermcnt of China.

(Fighting Hob), who has la-en taking baths at Hot Spring. Ark , for two mouths, passed through St. Louis Mon day forenoon en-route to Washington While at Union station ho t.nlktd freeh ab nit the Cliincseuitu.ttiuii, and, among other things, said: 'In my estimation, tin-great powers of the earth are faring the most critical situat on that ha- arisen in modern his tory To put it vigorously, thev are sitting on Kiwder b:irrefc;. and an x plosion may come at any time. If itdois come, it will annihilate present national lkiiimlarics and ehang the map of the world so that it will not be reeognizn b'e. "I do not believe in the talk that China may lieoouie a wnr'd power of its own force It st'inds in immediate dan gerof dismemberment and the partition of the empire can only be prevented by the United States. 1 approve of the policy of the administration as now out lined. Hi is country cannot afford to stand by and sec Chin i divided up among the European governments with out making a protest that will shake the w rid and announce to all I lie earth that this nation must lie supreme in the East ItecauM? it. holds the Philippines" Corn is King. I!y all means the most importantcvent of the moment in this country is the drenching rain that lust week, fell over the area known as the corn 1mU in the states of Iowa, Nebraka and Kansas. As estimated by the action of the corn market on Monday, they added about one hundred million dollars to the wealth of the land. The area now devoted to corn, which is, in manv wavs. the coun try's most iuiiortaiit crop, is nearly i million and a half'acrcs greater in the United States than oven the very large acreage sown last year: and the condi tion of the crop was on July 1 reported as being very high. Nevertheless, since tho time that this report was made the growing corn lias guttered Fomowhat from dr night and hot weather, and, if this drought and heat continued, tho corn would undoubtedly have been ser iously damaged. The unfavorable diame ter of the weather was exaggerated for stieeulative purposes, as it always is, but it was serious enough to can so anxiety. The rains that havo fallen havo as sured the country's corn crop of this year. We shall, in all probability, pro duce about two and a half billion bush els of corn in the coming season, much the largest crop ever raisi d, and as until Saturday at least it was selling about eleven cents a bushel higher, on tho average, than it was last year, it is ovi dent that even nlbwing for so mo de crease in prico owing to tho favorable conditions just reported, tho farmers will receive a vastly greater pecuniary ad vantage from it than they did in 1890. Two things will serve to keen un tho price of corn this season, despilo tho larger yield of it; first, the comparative ly small amount of reserve stores of tho article now hold in farmers' hands, and, secondly, tho very largo export demand for corn that has sprung up in recent years. In the 11-caI year just ended our coun try exported nearly .100,000,000 bushels of corn, whereas but a few years ago we exjiorted none at all. A great and grow ing uso for tho staplo has been stimu luted among foreign consumers. Former ly regarded as a product whoso Burplus could hardly be disposed of, it is now eagerly sought for in nearly all the grain markets of the world. Their Silver Wedding. Last Saturday, July 21, Mr. and Mrs. George Hornecker, near Now Point, celebrated their silver wedding anniversary. Their dear old pastor, Rev. Henry Fiegenbaum, who, twenty five years ago, united them in the holy bonds of matrimony, was present and added much to tho joy of tho occasion. There were about 7."i relatives and friends present. Following is a list of the presents re ceived: Mr.and Mrs. Markt, berry spoon; Mr. John Bunlz, berry spoon; Mr. and Mrs. Hunziger, berry spoon; Mr. and Mrs. Jake Buntz, jelly spoon; Mr. and Mrs. John Oppenlandcr, two sets teas poons; Mr. and Mrs. John Hornecker, 1 set teaspoons; children, set of napkins; Cora and Lora Planalp, jelly dish; Mi. and Mrs. Rotkin, tablecloth; Mr. and Mrs. Yetter, stand cover; Grandma and Mary Hornecker, 81.50; Grandma Smith, $1.00; Mr. and Mrs. John Planalp, 50c; Mr. and Mrs. Will Markt, 81.00; Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Markt, 81 00; 1 dollar, name unknown. Army and Navy. In the Spanish war of ISOStho Ameri can people learned tho value and tho need of a sufficient army and navy. In 1900 the Democratic party, having learn ed nothing, is denouncing "Militarism,'' which means nothing more than an army and n navy adequate to tho needs of the United States of to-day nnd to-morrow. Just now the United States aro called upon to provide efficient military and naval power for the protection of Ameri can citizens living in China and to join with the other great powers forthe pun ishment of the criniQ in Pekiu. What further disturbances may arise there, what wider anarchy may grow there, no man knows; but everybody knows that for tho protection of American life and projierty and trade in thoso vast regions where American interests, great as they are, arc as yet but beginning, a consider able military and naval establishment will lie needed. Much of it will be long needed, for it will take centuries to wear away in that vast population tho hatred of foreigners, a feeling partly instinctive and bred of conceit and partly inflamed by the monstrous calumnies invented and propagated by the literary and tho official classes. Not in China alone, but all over the world, as trade and travel incrcaso, the army and the navy will bo more needed for tho protection of American citizens and trade. Nations meet or clash at a hundred points now for every ono point where they used to. The United States wish to live at p?acn with all men, but for their own safety as well as "for their dignity they must bo prepared for war. Meanwhile the Democrats are gabbling about "militarism," and have confused 1900 with 1800. FROM CONGER. Word Beoeived From American Min ister in Peking. Like a flush ot sunlight out of the dark sky came the intelligence at an early hour Friday last that United States Min ister Conger had sent a cipher cable gram from Pekin to the stato depart ment at Washington, making known that two days ago he was alive and that tho foreigners were lighting for their safety. The Chineso minister, Wu Ting Fang, received tho message. Within an hour the welcome intelli gence that Mr. Conger had been heard from, after weeks of silence and evil re port, was Hashed through tho country and indeed, throughout the world, dis pclliiig the gloom which had prevailed everywhere and and bringing to officiols, and to tho public generally, a sense of profound relief. The message was as follows: "In HrllUli Iripttlou. t'nder roiitlunrtl Rluil iut shell I nun 'Ii1iifm troop. Oulrk relief only run prevent Ri-nentl miuuuirre, The message is not dated, but it is un dcrstood was sent from Peking on the 18th. John M. Crowley. John Marshall Crowley is dead. At Ilrst glance it will not appear that there is much of interest in this announce mem, lor .lonu Aiarsnaii urowloy was only a colored man engaged in a counlry print shop. Rut there was about Die life of Crowley that should be of inter est to every young negro boy in tho land. hen Crowley died he had a pretty little home of his own in one of the pret tieot little towns in Northwest Missouri He was happ;ly married and surrounded with the comforts of life. And all that he had was earned in spit oof discourage mcnts, in spite of prejudice, in spite of heredity. In the spring of '79 a young colored lad 15 years of age walked into the office of tho Hoi.t County Skntinkl and inquired of tho editor: "Mistah Dobyns, hasjou got any work a euliuil boy kin iloT Dobyns looked Into the shining black face -and it was a face so black that charcoal would leave a whito mark on it and asked: "What's your name?" "John Ma'shall Crowloy, Bah." "Can you read and writer" "No, sah. But I wants to git inter dia hyar printin' office so 1 kin 1'arn." And Dobyns gave the eager young black boy a job. From that day in early spring of TO until the day ho died, June 11, 1900, John Marshall Crowley novor left tho employ of Thk Holt County Skntinf.l. He learned to read and write while sweeping out tho office, mending tires, washing rollers nnd kicking press As soon as he was able to spell out the words in a piece of "reprint" copy ho bo gan to learn tho boxes in tho case. Slow ly but persistently ho toiled away, and in 'tho course of time ho could set a tring" as long ns any man at the case in that section of the country. He was always eager to learn something now He asked hundreds of questions, but ho always nsked them with an air that dis armed anger nnd invited answer. Ho watched tho foreman "make up" tho paper, and ono day he surprised the boss by making up tho old Skntinkl forms when tho foreman was sick In course of time he became ablo to do, and do well, all tho thousand and one things that must be done in a well equipped and prosperous country newspaper office, Crowley saved his money. Ho did not run the streets at night. He longed to be something better than a bootblack or inan-of-all-work. Men noted his in dustry, his honesty and his independ ence, and they helped him. When he had saved enough money to build him self a model little cottage ho married, the girl of hij choice, and theso two young people became leaders in the colored society of their town and res pec ted members of the community. When John Marshall Crowley died that little Missouri town lost a citizen who had done much for its advancement, Ho had not founded a library. Ho had not builded a college. He had not dedi cated a public park. Hut he had done better he had showed the boys of his race that it was possible for them to be- coino respected members of the com munity; that they were given opportuni ties which, if grasped, would make them good citizens, independent nn n and heads of happy families. The announcement of John Marshall Crowley's death did not call for long eulogies in the public prints. ISusiness houses were not closed all over the land out of respect to his memory. His name will not go down in history. Hut for all of that John Marshall Crowley had done more than many men whose memories aro revered today. He had done the best he could, and in the doing ho had set an example that will be an object lesson to his race. When Hooker T. Washington lectured in Omaha last winter ho paused in the middle of his lecture and asked: How many negro boys in Omaha are learning a mechanical trade? And from the vast audience came tho reply: 'Not one." Then Mr. Washington proceeded to tell tho negro 1k)b what they should do. The old colored man with his brush and pail of whitewash once mado a good liv ing. Hut he was a "whitewasher." The first thing he knew a whito man came along with an assortment of brushes and icveral colors of wash under fancy names. The white man called himself an "interior decorator," and tho old col ored man's job was gone forever. "You negro lioys," continued Mr. Washington, "mupt become interior de corators, for tho whilcwai-hing job is done." In drawing this apt illustration Mr. Washington conveyed a volume of sound sciiBO in' a half dozi n sentences. Will Maupin, in Omaha World-Herald. From Welty and Keeves. A letter from Mr. Edwin Welty, who with his .wife and daughter and Johnny Keeves, are doing Europe, announces their safo arrival at Naples, Italy, July nth. In a short timo after leaving New York, which was on tho 23d ult Johnny's stomach surrondered.hu t only foraehort time. All others of the party escaped, and no incident occurred to mar tho pleasure of tho tea voyage. Speaking of tho voyago ho says: "Tho scenes of a voyago aro varied and interesting in tho extreme to the eye used only to the prairie and the forest of the interior of a continent. Tho call of tho lookout man perched upon the forctop; tho hail of a passing vessel; tho flash of tho sea gulls' vting in our wako; tho leap of the flying fish, etc. help to make up the indescrib able panorama of vasAess and mighty sea. Music and dancing and pretty girls galore enliven the evenings on shipboard. Tho cuisine of the North German Lloyd liners is a noted one, and tho rueate, served in course, are claborata, The moats are, however, so smothered with German sauces and gitivies, as to render them unpalatable. Tho formal meals aro breakfast, lunch and dinner, with light refreshments at 10:30 a. in aud 4 p. m." Tho party arrived off Gibraltar on July 2d. "Gibraltar resembles in form a lion couchant, aud in this respect tvpillc tho great power it represents a menaco to all Europe, that tho lion crouches for its spring.

He isn't after any Naples girls he says; tho Oregon girls suit him thu best.

Tho tight ended with the record of one man, four horses and two bulls among tho slain.

KILLED THEIR WOMEN At the Battle of Tien Tsin the Scene Was Unspeakably Hor rible The Daily Express has received the following from Tien Tsin, dated July 18 "The casualties of tho allies in tho thrco days' fighting beforo tho native city of Tien Tsin exceeded 1,000. It is now certain that thero were several Rus sians and frenchmen lighting on tno Chinese side. Tho Chineso killed their own womon wholesale to prevent ttiem falling into tho hands of the Russians "Yestorday tho wholo.nativo city was in flames, and tho stench of the burning thousands of corpses was unspeakably horrible. "Among the incidents of tho lighting on July 13 was the precipitate flight of 500 French troops from Annam. They had been ordered to hold an important point; but, on being charged by tho Chinese with bayonets, the entire de tachment bolted panic stricken.

UNITED STATES POLICY It Is Said That It Will Strongly Op pose the Partition of China. A special to the Times-Herald from Washington says: Asa result of tho cabinet meetings held Tuesday and Thursday, tho policy of tho united States concerning tho great world crisis in China is fully and definitely decided upon. The substance of this policy is as follows: First -The United States will under no circumstances join in tho partition of China among tho jxnvers. aeconu i no united states will use all its inilucnec, to the utnisst oxtent, short of war with European nations, to prevent the dismemlierment of the Chi nese empire. Third -The United States proposes to have a voice in the settlement nf the Chi nese troubles and its voice will ever bo raised against the spoliation and in favor of the preservation of China's territorial and governmental entity, along the lines set forth in Secretary Hay's note to the powers dated July 3. Fourth -Tho United Stntes will notde clare war ujion China un the present showing of facts, no matter what other iwwers may do. Fifth Tho United States, acting inde pendently and for itself, will co operate with tho other powers in restoring order in China, in punishing nil officials, high or low, found guilty of crimes against human life, and in sotting up a stable government that may give guarantees of security of life and property and free dom of trade. LATEST FROM CHINA! Boxers Will Endeavor to Extermin ate All Foreigners in China. London, July 2(5. Tho Shanghai cor respondent of the Daily Express, telo graphing, says: "A general rising throughout China is now regarded as so absolutely certain that all of the missionaries throughout tho empire have been ordered to take refuge without delay either at Shanghai or Hong Kong. Rcfugeesnru beginning to arrive from all points m thu most piti able condition. Washington, July 2.1. The receipt at Tien Tsin of an apparently genuine mes sago in autograph from Minister Conger has dono nothing to dissipate the doubt as to thu situation at Pekin. Tho mes sage, which was forwarded by tho naval officers at Tien Tsin, Taku and CheFoo, lias served only to ilceiien tho darkest and saddest mystery of the century. 1 lie situation at the llritish legation, is represented to be tlio same in each case, nnd as Mr. Conger declares that re lief must come quicklv, if at all. thero is ground for the suspicion that the crisis is over. Hie assumption that tins rea soning is correct involves the further conclusion that Mr. Conger's cipher message, if genuine, was redated, and of course, if re-dated at all, that was done by Chinese officials. London. July 25. Tho Daily Express has tno following from St. 1'etersburg: "Admiral Skreydlollt.commanding tho Russian squadron in Chineso waters, has receivtu precise instructions to bombard the Chinese coast towns immediately on receipt of confirmation of tho report of the massacre at 1'eKin. London, July 2(5. 1 a. in. Mr. Con ger'8 cablegram, tho substance of which has been transmitted to tho United States secretary of the navy, through Captain Thomas of tho United States cruiser Brooklyn, has increased tho bo lief in London that there is no hopo for the foreign legations in Pekin, and that tho elaliorato fabric of the dispatches, whili the (Jhiiioso are building to tier suaue the civilized world that thu nun istcrs are still alive, is onlv intended to enable them to gain timo to complete arrangements for warfare. The McKinley Platform It is now complete nnd clear, thanks to Win. McKinley. I. No freo coinage of silver at sixteen to one. No debasement of the currency or repudiation of the nation's promises to its creditors. Xo relaxation of vigi Ianco in defenceof the gold standard. II. No return to a tariff which brings to tho Government deficiencies in its revenue nnd to tho people the destrue tion of their prosperity. III. No policy of Bcuttlein the Philip pines, no evasion of tho duties which am ours in that quarter of the globe. No retreat of the Hag that means civil ization, justice and liberty for all whom it covers. IV. No wavering, no turning aside, no retreat, in tho fulfilment of our national or international obligations in China or elsewhere. No surrender of the prcs tige this republic has won during the past three years in the eyes of the world. V. Tho Republican party can be trust ed by tho American jieople. Thus is the issue defined with perfect clearness now. AH of the several proposi tions of dishonor or surrender or shame to which the Bryanitc platform and pro gramme say cs,Mr. McKinlkv rejects with an emphatic No. Let tho American people, confronted with Hryanism, sec so it that the Noes have it again. Political Orphans. There should be none: those of the Old Guard who feel that b reason of the socialistic tendency of the Demo cracy of Kansas City, that they arejKjIi- tical orphans are radically mistaken Men of their politics have staring them n the face a party that stands for every essential idea for tho sake of which thoy have been forced to abandon the re vol u ionized Democracy. Tho Republican party is for honest money; it opposes tho shame and disas ter of repudiation of the national debt. The Republican party lielievef in tho constitutional principlo first announced and practiced by Thomas Jefferson, giv- ng to this nation the quickening life of exiHWsion the power to grow. Of nnother Jcffcrsonian principle, sec ond to nonojn tho political philosophy of that first of Democratic statesmen, the Republican party is today tho sole defender. It is against the rabid un- Dcmocratic spirit that tries to create class hatred and poison tho public mind with anarchy. It is against tho bastard socialism and tho unlwunded ccntraliz- ng theories of tho Populists, today the mainstay of Hryanism. Tho Republican party is for the ori ginal Democratic order of tho republic, which Hryanism threatens at every hand. It is for equal rights as against the vic ious class distinction that Hryanism leads to in the battlo which the Demo cratic leader himself has announced TERRY SHOw IS COMING TO OREGON. FRIDAY.

Tho Republican party is forthe Ameri c.in Hag, its dignity and authority in all territories where it flies as emblematic of our sovereignty, and for its prestige abroad. The attack upon the sort of Democrrcy our orphan friends were bred in is today so direct and angry, although waged in tho Democratic name, that no voter of his inborn sentiments can conscientious ly hesitate a moment in joining hands with tho party of tho defence, which to day happens to bo led by two candid ates nominated by a national convention labelled Republican, even McKinley and nnd Roosevelt. Theso orphan voters says that tho party name of Democrat, which origin ally was "Kepubhcan," is a misnomer. Let theiu apply their reason also to tho 11 J . Republican party. They will find in that organization, in spito of tho history of its name, what ho seeks for in vain in the party of Chicago and Kansas City. It Is Up To Cnina. Tho state department is again in a waiting nttitudo regarding China. Ithas frankly, promptly and fully answered the Chinese empcror'B appeal for medi ation, and the correspondence given publicity makes it appear that tho nest move is for tho Chinese government. It is to accept or to reject our terms at once, and in either caso, tho answer must convoy tidings to tho state of affairs at Peking and tho welfare of the lega- tioners. Tho belief is not concealed that the chances for successful medi ation aro slight, Mediation can not bo forced upon a party to a cause; it must bo acceptable to all tho parties. If the United States is to mediate in China's interests, shemust first secure tho assent of all the powers who havo suffered in life or property at Peking.Tho difficulties in the way of such an undertaking are likely to bo many and serious, in view of tho exhibition of feeling in Europe. But it is said that the United States will cheerlully undertake tho task, provided its conditions are met. If it does not succeed in inducing the European powers to be lenient in their treatment of tho imperial government of China, the United States government will not lie drawn into further hostilities after wo have taken care of our own affairs, but wo will withdraw, taking care, however. to let it be understood that this govern ment will not allow its proper interests in China to be injured by tho action of the powers that may choose to remain obdurate. The Christian Endeaveor convention in Dondon, which began last Friday morning, is tho largest, if not the most important religious gathering ever held in Great Britain.

Seven hundred Americans ar- rivi-d at Aloxandcr park in ono batch last Friday, and other largo delegations from tho United States wero to follow. Tho American representatives are to take a foremost part in the convention. There aro signs already that our dele gates will make thomselvcs heard and felt in all the deliberations.

Forbes was completely overrun with wood choppers last Saturday evening Those who chop wood for a living were U in town after a hard week's labor, and those who belong to the Modern Woodmen of America, on account of its insurance being so reasonable, that man, at a small expense, provide for their loved ones when death has called them hence, wero there, thicker than leaves on a tree at this season of tho year. Oregon camp was there infull force, as was Forest City and New Point camps, and visitors from several other lodges in the state. The occasion for this large gathering was the instituting of a new camp of tho Modern Woodmen of America at that place. The Oregon camp had charge ot affairs. Those who ofUcered it were: C. C.

CaldwelI,sentry;James Bishop, chiof forester; Bert Lynch, Jno, Peret, Frank lluiatt, Jas. Milne, Jirdie Andler, Roy Meyer, A. Hester and Frank Wood ward, team of Foresters. There were IS candidates present, making plenty of work for the poor old goat After the exemplification of the secret work, the affairs were then turned oyer to E. A. Williams, the district deputy, who pro ceeded to elect the officers for Elmgrove camp, No. 7220, M. W. A. He appointed C. C. Watson as temporary secretary Frank Lynch, teller. The list ot newly elected officers: W. S. Hodgin, V. C.: Geo. B. Donovan, W. A.; Eli Harper, banker; Jodu Milne, clerk; Geo. Rose, escort; Joseph Moss, sentry; Geo. Goer, watchman and Dr. Kiopp, camp physi cian. Managers, John Cotton, three years. Roe Wilson, two years, and W P. Worley, one year. The newly elected officers were then duly installed, and tho first meeting of tho Elmgrove camp was closed. Then a committee came in, a wash boiler filled with good coffeer clothes baskets full of sandwiches, can ned beef and fruits. milk; sugar, cheese and crackers, pickles, in fact everything good that a Woodman would relish. The Elmgrove boys are as generous and jolly set of fellows as caa be found anywheres Dr. Mortoa, ofSt. Joseph, was called! at tho- bedside of King Debord, on Thursday, ot this week in consultation! with Dr. Findloy, the family physician. The nature of Mr. Dcbord's sickness we do not know. Hon. Joseph Flory Will speak at Craig, Mo., August 23, 1900. ! GRAND REUNION J AT TOouixd City, TOo., One Week, Beginning August 13, 1900.
