Union League Club ol New York to Take Radical Steps. Will Ask Congress to Reduce Repre sentation of Southern States The Club Had Test Case a Year Ago .When It Voted to Keep Negro Ser vants by a Vote of 3 to 1. New I'orkt April 9. The members of the Union League club of this city will take radical steps, it is said, favor- hg negro suffrage In the south at their April meeting, which occurs to-night. in a word, congress will be appealed to deal with the question along the line of a radical reduction of representation of the southern states in congress. It is Just about a year ago that the Union League club was divided on the question of discharging negro attend ants. The negro servants were kept by a vote of 3 to 1 after a stormy ses sion. The report of the club committee on political reform which is expected to precede the action favoring negro suff rage, will, it is believed, create a con- uision in the southern states, After reciting that certain southern .states i j. , j - a . . i ii nave innen steps to circumvent nation al legislation giving suffrage to negroes the-report recommends that congress be asked to take up the question with out a moment's delay. It recommends also that .this body be asked to "cut down southern representa tion, and that a large sum of money be appropriated to test the validity of the recently adopted constitutions t in Ala bama, Virginia and other states of the south. . ' The ablest counsel in ' the country will be employed to prepare and argue these test cases regarding the consti tutions mentioned. In addition to the sums appropriated it is proposed to ask the individual members of the club to contribute. One v of the prime movers in this movement is said fc be former secre tary of the interior Cornelius N. Bliss. The club is expected to adopt reso- utlons following the adoption of the committee's report. Ten thousand copies of these resolutions will be cir culated to state senators to prominent chruchmen and those in' authority ev erywhere. . . President Roosevelt was president of the club in 1899. He is still prominent in its' councils. - A MISUNDERSTANDING. Waahinirton Authorities Correct Clil neie Bond Storlea. t .. WASHINGTON, April .Evidently considerable mlaunderstandlngf contin ues regarding the bonds "which China is to execute to' the United ' States In pay ment of the Indemnity for the Boxer outrages provided- in the protocol of April , 1900. The statement from Pe king that the American financial agent ender instructions from the state de partment is substituting a bond pro viding for the payment of the indem nity in gold dollars in place of a silver bond , is denied in authoritative quar ters. ', ' , ' ' Pur government is disposed to take Its own view of the interpretation , of the terms of the protocol. This provid ed that China should execute to the United States an indemnity bond at the rate of exchange provided in the pro tocol, and it was also provided that the installments of the indemnity payable thereafter should be at the rate of ex change existing1 when these payments fell due. If the United States, desiring not to avail itself of the loss which China should suffer in these payments as a result of the depreciation in silver, prefers to demand them at the rate of exchange existing when the protocol was signed, that, it is held, is a matter which concerns us alone and leaves the other powers to do as they please. The instructions of the department of state to Its representative in China who Is conducting the negotiations relative to the settlement of the indemnity look to the retention of independence while faithfully carrj!J"ut the engage ments entered Into by the United States (n the Peking settlement. Mitchell Looked to For Settlement. WILKESBARRE, Pa., April 9.-JThe reports sent out concerning a general feeling of unrest among the mine workers in many cases are exagger ated. In this valley there Is some lit tie dissatisfaction at a few of the col lieries, but what there is, it is believed, can be readily remedied upon the ar rival of John Mitchell, president ef the United Mine Workers, who is expected to reach here some time during next week. Many officials of the various coal companies admit that there Is some dissatisfaction among their em ployees, but contend that this is due to misinterpretation of the mine commls sion's award. The companies in gen eral stand ready to adhere to all the stipulations and provisions of the award. A Turbine Propelled Warihlp, WASHINGTON, April 9.

Ogden as advocating a reorganization of the Red Cross to regain the confidence of the public. Speaking for Miss Barton, her per sonal representative says that she is in excellent health, but much worried over an the trouoie me wasnington 'malcontents" nave made for her re cently. ' ; As for a congressional investiga tion," Miss Barton's representative adds, "Miss Barton neither fears nor opposes it. She would rather welcome as the practical manner of having the Washington minority show what they mean by all assertions of malad ministration and wasteful management they have been making, but for which, In spite of repeated requests, they have never yet onered a aennite, aetsuieu charge."
