England Wants China Opened

Boxer Outrage Japan Satiified with
LONDON, April 15. Great Britain
has not yet deflntcly estimated the
money indemnity she desires China
to pay. The government adheres to
the belief that little can be gained by
insisting upon cash payment from
China, and though the government re
grets this will possibly be a cause for
delay, it continues to instruct Sir Er
nest Satow to try to induce the pow
ers to argee to a demand for greater
trading privileges instead of money.
The government Is of the opinion that
the opening of those rich provinces
hitherto closed to foreign commerce
would result u much greater benefit
to the nations concerned and to China
herself than the extraction of lump
sums of money.
Regarding Japan's attitude toward
Russia, opinion in Downing street in
clines to the belief that Japan, In
common with the other powers. Is sat
isfied with what is termed as Rus
sia's backdown, but that Japan will
continue to keep a sharp eye on Cor-sa
and have no hesitation in threatening
hostilities should Russia menace that
Pekin, April 15. The committee of
ministers which is considering China's
financial resources has reported the
conclusion, based on what Information
is thus far obtainable, that $200,000,
000 in gold can be raised without in
juring China's resources. The exami
nation by the committee into the sub
ject is thus far incomplete, and it will
probably subsequently learn that
other Chinese resources for indemni
ties are available.
The discussion of politics has this
week given place to amusement, com
mencing with the German races at the '"
Hunting Park, Monday last. The re
mainder of the week was devoted to
International races, an assault at arms
and tent pegging at the Temple of
Heaven. The Russians particularly
are celebrating the Easter holidays.
The ministers openly express their
desire that the foreign troops leave ''
Pekin. They are seemingly as anx
ious for the departure as were the be
sieged ministers anxious for the arri
val of the troops. -
THE FLOW REDUCED.
Current in the Chicago River Is Too
CHICAGO, April 15. The Post to
"Federal authorities have ordered
the flow in the Chicago river reduced
from 300,000 to 200,000 cubic feet a
minute. Word to this effect came
from Washington to the sanitary board
today. The board will act immediately
upon receipt of the official order, and
the current will not be Increased, as
the channel haa been widened and
deepened and existing obstructions to
navigation ' have been removed. Ac
tion on the part of the war department
was. brought about by the protest of
local river interests and the Lake Car
riers' Association, which, since the
opening of the big canal, have com
plained that 30,000 cubic feet pro
vided by law was dangerous to navi
gation under present conditions. Lo
cal authorities are apprehensive of the
effect it may have upon the St. Loula

no fear of the charge that Chicago
was polluting the water supply of St.
Louis. In view of the action of the
war department, the outcome of the
St. Louis appeal to the courts is doubt
ful. If the legislature passes the bill
authorizing the commission to collect
one-half of 1 per cent tax to be used
for the improvement of the river, it is
believed the current can be increased
gradually after September, as the
work of widening and deepening the
channel progresses. Otherwise It will
be four or five years before relief can
A Mystery Cleared.
Sedalia. Mo.. April 13. The mystery
surrounding the theft of $10,009 ln

merce, of this city, August 1, 1898,
has been cleared by a convict named
Freeman, now in the Michigan City,
Ind., penitentiary. According to Free
man, the theft was committed by
Irwin Gamble, who entered the vault
of the Bank of Commerce at the noon
hour, and got away with the money
while he watched outside.
Radicals on Top.
Havana, April 15. The Cuban con
stitutional convention placed itself
upon record today against the Piatt
amendment by a vote of 18 to 10 on
a resolution that the convention should
declare itself opposed to the amend
ment "on account of the terms of some
of its clauses and the way in which
they are drawn, and also on the con
tents of the others, especially clauses
3, 6 and 7." The-conservatives sssert
that this action is embarrassing, in
asmuch as it practically ties the hands
of any commission that might be sent
