By unanimous vote, William McKinley,
member of a Chicago bricklayers' union
and President of the United Btates, was
the other night expelled from member
ship in the Chicago Building Trades
Council. It will be recalled that Presi
dent McKinley was elected a member of
the Bricklayers' Union in order that he
might lay the cornerstone of the new Chi
cago Poatoffioe without prejudice to the
union men working on the building, pres
ident McKinley has never worked with
"scab" bricklayers In Chicago, so It was
not on that account that he was fired
from the union, but because he Is run
ning for a political office. The union
has a rule proscribing politics.
There Is probably no foundation for
the story from Kansas City that, If the
Committee on Resolutions falls to report
a specific declaration In favor of 16 to 1,
Mr. Bryan will go to the convention and
offer an amendment, and make a speech
in advocacy of his favorite ratio. Bhould
the convention then fail to act favorably
upon his amendment, according to the
story, he would decline the nomination.
Any such proceeding would be very sen
sational, but It is not likely to occur.
Mr. Bryan and the committeemen will
have arrived at a satisfactory under
standing, in all probability, before the
convention Is called to order. Mr. Bryan
will be nominated, and will accept upon
the platform adopted by the representa
tives of the democracy In convention as
sembled. There does not appear to hr
any good reason for thinking that the
platform will not be one upon which Mr.
KBryun can consistently stand.
THK FATE OF THE HDISTEHS.
There Is no longer any doubt that the
minister of Germany at Pekin was assas
sinated last month. As to the fate of
the ministers of ihe other nations repre
sented there, and of the foreigners at
Pekin, nothing is known. Very little re
liance is placed upon reports concerning
them received through Chinese sources.
The belief Is, however, that Ihe govern
ment has succeeded in protecting the oth
er ministers from harm. How it has .lone
it no one outside of Pekin knows, if, m
fact, it has protected them. It may have
taken them into that portion of Pekin oc
cupied by the royal family. The govern
ment would naturally desire to protect the
ministers and their families, knowing that
to permit them to be killed would he to
call down on China the wrath of all of the
One report Is that the Dowager Empress
hss lost conirol of the situation, and has
so Informed the Powers—that. In fact, she
Is unable lo afford the ministers protec
tion. The man who is tsaid to have usurp
ed authority is Prince Tuan. He is the
heart of ihe Boxer Society, and Is Ihe
father of the heir apparent to the
throne. It is the understanding that he
is bitterly hostile to foreigners, and, if it
be a fact that he is in supreme authority
at Pekin, the announcement of the as
sasaination of the other ministers and of
ail the foreigners at the Chinese capital
may be expected at any time.
The consul® at Tien Tain undoubtedly re
gard the prospect of the ministers getting
out of Pekin alive as very gloomy. Ac
cording to our dispatches this morning
they have advised their respective gov
ernments to notify the authorities at Pckir*
that if the ministers are harmed the
graves of the ancestors of the royal family
will be destroyed. It seems, however, that
Great Britain has some reason for reject
ing this advice of the consuls.
Evidently the consuls at Tien Tsin re
gard the situation of the ministers as des
perate. It is reported at the latter place
that they are besieged in their legations
and cannot hold out much longer. If such
extraordinary efforts are being made to
get possession of their persons the purpose
is undoubtedly to kill them. It is to be
hoped that the report that they are be
sieged In their respective legations is not
true. It would seem as If there would be
little difficulty In breaking Into the lega
tions. There arc said to be 20,000 Chinese
troops Inside of the walls of Pekin and 30,-
000 outside. Are the troops protecting the
legations against the assaults of the mob
or are they acting with the mob? That is
a question which no one seems to be able
to answer. Until this report respecting
Prince Tuan got afloat it seemed to be the
understanding that the troops were under
the command of the Dowager Empress,
and that she was trying to protect the
ministers. Now it is difficult. In fact,
Impossible, to say what the situation is.
About 14,000 troops of foreign governments
are now at Tien Tsin. If they are r.ot
already on their way to Pekin they will
be soon. That la a small relief force if
the government is in sympathy with the
Box era. While It Is true that the Chinese
are very poor soldiers their army is to he
taken Into aocount because of its num
bers. It is only a question of a short
time, however, before the foreign nations
will have enough soldiers in China not on
ly to rescue the ministers, provided they
ore not murdered before relief can be sent
them, but also to compel China to pay a
heavy Indemnity for killing foreigners
and destroying their properly. There will
be very little consideration shown China

AN IMPARTIAL VERDICT ASKED.
Gen. Roberts says that all he asks tn
(he matter of the charges made by Mr.
Burdett-Coutts, Is an Impartial verdict.
The charges are that Gen. Roberts has
not taken as good care of his wounded as
he should—that, In feet, he has neglected
his wounded shamefully. From one source
cornea the report that wounded men were
permitted to lie for day* near where they
had fallen, with only such covering as
they could get themselves, or which their
companions could provide. Another Is
that the hospital attendants were neg
lectful of their duties, that they consum
ed the delicacies provided for the sick,
and that the number of physicians was
It seems that the criticisms of Mr.
Burdett-Coutts were aimed at the war
office, but the war office refused to shoul
der the responsibility, placing it on Gen.
Roberts. Julian Ralph, the American cor
respondent, who pretends to know some
thing about the hospital management tn
South Africa, declares that the wounded
British soldiers are treated far better
in the Boer hospitals than in their own.
Gen. Roberts does not shirk the respon
sibility which the war office has placed
upon him. He admits that in the march
from Bloemfontein there was some neg
lect of the wounded, but he says that the
march was so rapid and the fights so nu
merous that as much attention could not
be given to hospital arrangements and to
the wounded as there would have been
under more favorable conditions, but that
the best was done that could be un
der the circumstances. In concluding his
report he says that a corps of competent
men should be sent to South Africa to
make a thorough Investigation of the
chau-ges of Mr. Burdett-Coutts. Evi
dently he does not place much reliance
upon the report made by that gentleman,
who, by the way, is a member of Parlia
It is probable that there has been some
neglect of the wounded in South Africa.
It would be strange if there were not.
Many officers holding positions of respon
sibility are lacking in ability to discharge
some of the duties required of them. They
know how to lead men In battle, but Ihey
do not know how to take care of their
men. In fact, they eeem Indifferent to
their welfare. There were many such men
in our nrmy during the Spanish-Amerlcan
war. It was owing to their negligence
largely that there was so much sickness
and so many scandals of one kind and
another. Gen. Roberts declares that all
he wants is an Impartial verdict by com
petent men in respect to the Burdett-
Coutts charges. No doubt he will be able
to show that while the wounded were sub
jected to great suffering and hardships,
they were Ihe victims ol very little actual

VAX WIC K'S PLATFORM.
It seems that Judge Van Wyck carried
the draft of a platform to Kansas City,
■ l:ut there Is nothing to justify the con
! elusion that It is meeting with much fa
vor. He is authority for the statement
that It Is favored by some of the dele
gates from the South. It Is pretty safe
to say thai the great majority of the
Southern delegates will favor the kind
of a platform wanted by Mr. Bryan. They
recognize the fact that If Mr. Bri an Is to
be the nominee for President he ought to
be permitted to have something to say
obo.:t the p atform.
In Mr. Van Wyck's platform an effort
is made to push silver into the back
ground by simply reaffirming the Chica
go platform. Prominence is given to the
questions of Imperialism, trusts and the
Judge Van Wyck still has a hope appar
ently that he will be the choice of the con
vention for Vice President. He seems to
think that he will be the most available
candidate for (hat position in the event
the convention adopts a platform similar
to the draft which he offers to his fellow
delegates for their consideration.
Judge Van IVyck may be a very good
man, and in many respects qualified for
the high position he seeks, but his con
neotton with the ice trust In New York
Cicy la a barrier to his nomination. We do
not undertake to say that there is any
thing wrong in his owning a big block of
the ice trust stock, but if he were to be
the candidate of the Democratic party
for Vice President the Republicans would
spare no effort to make the country be
lieve that he was the head and front of
He may have had a chance for the vice
presidential nomination before there was
any ice trust scandal, but in view of Ihe
fact that there Is going to be a big tight
made against trusts in the presidential
campaign 11 would be a mistake for the
Democratic party to have on Its ticket a
beneficiary of one of the most oppressive
trusts In the entire country.
Unless the situation at Kansas City
changes very greatly within the next day
or two there will not be muck stance for
the adoption of Judge Van Wyck's plat
form or for his nomination aw Vice Presi
ROOSEVELT AXD THE ROUGH
Gov. Roosevelt Is having a good time
at the reunion of the Rough Riders. When
he left New York he said he should not
talk politics going or returning, and It Is
probable that he will not talk politics at
the reunion. It would not be In good
taste for him to do so. The Rough Rid
ers are not all Republicans. In fact, it
is not certain that a majority of them
are. They are of all parties. It is even
probable that there are some Prohibition
ists among them.
It was recently suggested by a cheer
ful innocent of Indiana that the regiment
of Rough Riders be reorganized and ac
company Gov. Roosevelt on an election
eering tour over the country. In other
words, it was proposed to make a sort of
advertisement of the men who composed
the Rough Riders' Regiment for the ben
efit of the Republican party.
It is certain that the Rough Riders
would not consent to anything of the
kind, and It la probable that Gov. Roose
velt would not ask them to make a show
of themselves for his benefit. It is true
that a few of them campaigned with him
when he was a candidate for the govern
orship of New York, but they were per
sonal friends and Insisted upon taking
part in the campaign. That was a very
different thing from getting the whole
regiment together and parading It over
the country to makes votes for the Re
Of course, they would have fo be paid
for such service. In fact. It is doubtful
if such an advertising scheme would be
of any benefit to the Republican party.
It would cost an immense amount of
money to carry the regiment from point
to point and maintain It, and It would be
asserted that the trusts were furnishing
the money to pay the bills. Thus It would
be advertised that the trusts were friend
ly to the Republican party.
THE NEGLECTED EIGHTEEN.
It would be Interesting to know why
Congress authorized the appointment of
eighteen commissioners at large, at a sal
ary of $3,000 each, to the Paris Exposi
tion. What good purpose do they serve?
What duties do they perform? What, In
fact, Is there for them to do? It looks
very much as if some congressmen had
friends they wished to compliment by
sending them to the exposition, at the ex
pense of the government, and so they
got the act through Congress authorizing
the appointment of these eighteen com
It seems that they are a great nuisance
in Paris and very much neglected. They
bother Commissioner Peck by insisting
that he shall procure for them invitations
to all of the state functions, and by bring
ing them Into prominence on all possible
occasions. These commissioners are called
in the American, colony In Paris, the
"famous useless eighteen.” President
Loubet Is reported to have sarcastically
said something to them when they called
on him. to thank him for Inviting them to
all of the functions at the palace, which,
as they do not speak French, they did not
understand, but for which the master of
ceremonies took the President to task.
President Loubet is reported to have re
plied: "Don't you think it Just as well
to let our beloved sister republic under
stand that there was no need to appoint
half its population to offleiolly represent
the other half here? Where would we
be had all the nations been so Intemper
The $54,000 which will be paid to these
commissioners could much better have
been spent In some other way. If there
were anything like economy exercised
in the administration of the government, It
would not be necessary to retain the
taxes levied to carry on the Bpanlsh-
But we don’t see what President Ikmtvt
has to complain of. His people will get
the money of these commissioners—money
recklessly squandered by our government.
The commissioners of educaiion of Hon
olulu have adopted a resol tn ion prohibiting
the employment in the public schools of
any teacher, who is suffering from tuber
cu'.oslH or other infectious or contagious
disease. It also prohibits consumptive
pupils from attending ihe public schools.
Heretofore, l Is said, many of Ihe teach

of the mildness of Its climate.
IHE MOBMNG NEWS: TUESDAY; JULY 3. 1900.
The Washington correspondent of the
New York Tribune, on the authority of
“a naval officer," so ye the battleship Ore
gon, now on the rocks off the Chinese
coast, is manned by a notoriously weak,
; complement of officers. Capt. Wilde Is nil
I right, it is said; but the Captain cannot
|do everything; he Is bound o rest
j ami sleep sometimes. And Wilde’s staff,
I according to the Tribune’s story, is about
as poor as could have been selected. The
executive officer, upon whom the captain
I must depend chiefly, was court-martialed
: for drunkenness, on duty at the Mare Isl
and navy’ yard in February, 1898. He was
given a scathing reprimand. Two months
later he repeated the offense, and was
sentenced by another court-martial to dis
missal from service, but the President
modified the sentence to degradation to
the bottom of his rank, involving a loss
of forty-nine numbers. The navigating
officer is young man who had never
previously navigated any vessel of greater
draught than ten feet. The senior watch
officer on deck graduated in 1898, and six of
the ensigns are of the class of 1900, whose
commissions probably have not yet reach
ed them. "She was being handled by chil
dren," was the comment of the naval
officer quoted above upon the grounding
of the Oregon. From the foregoing it
would appear that the navy department is
itself not without blame in the matter,
since It gave the ship to a crew of medi
ocre ability and then issued orders to them
to hurry with their vessel through dan

now the gallant Philip has been added to
the great majority. The newspaper
writers, by the way, seem never to tire
of recalling stories illustrating the charac
ter of "Jack” Philip. Besides being a
fighter he was a Christian gentleman and
was not ashamed to confess his God be
fore men. One of the most striking inci
dents of the Santiago fight was when
Philip, after the conclusion of the engage
ment, called his officers and men to the
quarter deck and invited them to bare
their heads and give silent thanks to God
for the victory. As showing his kindness of
heart, it is said that only a short time
before he died, driving in Brooklyn one
day, he noticed a poor, ragged boy on the
curb. "Poor youngster,” said the Admiral
to his companion, "the world won’t give
him half a chance.” Another incident
shows his true Americanism. When he
took charge of the Brooklyn navy yard
there was in a conspicuous place a big
piece of rusty iron labeled, "Taken from
the rebel ram Mississippi.” "Scrape off
that word ‘rebel,’ ” was the Admiral’s or
der as soon as he noticed it. "There are
no rebels. There Is no longer any North
or any South, and, anyhow, I don’t like
the word.” Being a man of such charac
ter, is It to be wondered at that "Jack”

story, according fo the Salt Lake Herald.
In the enrly days of Durango as a min

contribution, the money to be used to
help Christianize Colorado.

he said. "This is no ordinary occasion;
nothing leas than a dollar goes.”
The collection was a good one.

One winter there was much distress In
this particular district, to relieve which,
as far as possible, o local committee was
formed. One of Its members was an en
terprising inhabitant who had mos suc
cessfully carried out the management of
the Dickens and, thinking
to secure the great novelist’s aid for so
good an object, wrote asking him to ’’give
The reply was of the shortest, and cer
tainly significant. II ran as follows;
