Tkß CHINESE SITUATION' ALARMING
The situation in China such as to
cause the governments of all of the
Christian nations intense anxiety and
alarm. Pekin Is in the hands of the Box
ers and their purpose is to kill every for
eigner in that city. They have killed the
German minister, and according to the
dispatches published this morning they
have killed the ministers of all of the
other Christian governments and all the
other foreigners there. If Prince
Tuan, who is at the head of the Boxer
Society, and who is virtually dictator at
Pekin, is permitted to have his way for
a little while longer it will be difficult to
prevent the massacre of all missionaries
and other foreigners, together with the
native Christians throughout the greater
part of the empire. The viceroys are
trying to maintain order in the southern
provinces, but if Prince Tuan is success
ful at Pekin for a short time longer, his
policy of exterminating all foreigners will
The foreign powers have about 14,000
men si Tien Tsin, and the number is be
ing Increased all the time by fresh arri
vals. The allied forces have not dared
to march to the relief of the ministers at
Pekin because of the very large Chinese
army that blocks the way. It would be
folly to attempt to reach the Chinese
capital with an inadequate force. Ad
miral Seymour's experience was a warn
ing that will be heeded. Capt. MeCalla
is of the opinion that it will take an
army of 60,000 men to reach Pekin. It
will be a month before a force of that
size can be collected at Tien Tsin, unless
dependence Is placed almost wholly on
Japan. The disposition now seems to be
to let Japan furnish the greater part of
the troops required for the movement on
The German Emperor is very much
wrought up over the assassination of the
German minister. He purposes to throw
a large army into China and make that
country pay dearly for the insult to the
German flag. The governments of the
other Powers will feel pretty much the
same way If their ministers have been,
or shall be, assassinated.
All of the Powers are disturbed by the
fear that if they send large forces to
China that empire may become the the
ater of a great war between them. While
they may get along together until the
safety of all o? the foreigners that have
not been murdered has been secured, it
is about certain tha they will not be
able to agree as to what policy shall ue
pursued after the object which caused,
them to send armies to China has been
accomplished. One Power will want to do
one thing and another will insist upon
doing another thing. Softie will take the
position that the empire should be dis
membered while others will take a stand
in favor of preserving Its integrity. Sev
eral of the Powers now have what they
call spheres of Influence in China which
they are anxious to enlarge. To them
the present disturbances will seem to
offer the very best opportunity possible
for accomplishing their object.
Thus far the United States have taken
the position that a state of war with
China does not yet exist-that the Chi
nese government is still trying to keep Its
obligations to foreign governments, but
has not been able to do so, because of
the strength of the rioters. Assuming
that this view Is the correct one, it is
evident that if the peace and commerce
of the country are to be preserved a
stronger power than the government
must take control of affairs. If
the foreign governments which are
interested In China should establish a
protectorate over the empire it is
probable that that settlement would
not be a lasting one. The half
dozen or more Powers that would
be interested In the protectorate would
not get along together any more than
England, Germany and the United States
were able to agree In their management
That the question which China pre
sents Is a serious one there is no doubt.
The government of the United States and
of European countries see and appre
ciate its difficulties. They recognize the
fact that in order to effect a satisfactory
settlement of it the ablest kind of di
plomacy will be required. A failure to
reach any agreement in regard to it
might mean war on a stupendous scale.
DEWEY HEADY HIR ACTIVE SER
The navy department has been consid
ering the possibility of much more serious
trouble in China than at present exists
there, and has perfected plans for action
in the event that it becomes necessary to
increase the Asiatic fleet. It is stated that
Admiral Dewey will be offered the com
mand of the fleet if it is Increased to any
considerable extent, and that he has ex
pressed his willingness to accept.
Command of the Asiatic fleet with the
prospect of duplicating his brilliant
achievement in Manila bay would do much
to restore to the Admiral the popularity
he lost by the gift house transaction and
the venture into the field of politics. Ad
miral Dewey is still, of course, a very
popular man. He occupies a high
place in the affections of the people, but
It will hardly be denied that he has lost
some of the esteem in which he was held
when ho arrived in New York from

Asiatic station, if the United states should
have trouble in that port of the world of
sufficient importance to demand the ser
vices of so distinguished a naval officer.
While the navy department has been
getting ready for war in the Far East,
the war department has been doing noth
ing in that direction. The Secretary of
War say* that he has done nothing be
yond ordering a couple of regiments to the
scene of trouble in China. Evidently he

THE MORNING NEWS: THURSDAY; JULY 5. 1900.
; SPEECH OF THE TEMPORARY
The speech of Gov. Thomas, temporary
chairman of the Democratic Convention,
is well calculated to make an excellent
impression on the country. It points out
the strong points of the Democratic posi
i (ion, and the weak ones of the Republican.
1 it makes it clear that the Democratic
party is the party of the plain people, and
(hat the Republican party Is the party of
' the rich and of corporate wealth.
It leaves no doubt as to where the Dem
ocratic party stands on the money ques
, tion, the expansion question, and the ques
| tion of trusts.
It is a notable fact that, as far as ascer
| tained. the laboring classes of the country
are against the policy of imperialism.
They realize that If that policy prevails
j the country will, in all probability, be
overrun by Asiatics, who, on account of
their willingness to work for starvation
wage*, would moke It difficult for Amer
ican workmen to keep their dinner pails
full. The Republican party has always
pretended to be watchful of the interests
of American workmen. It can not pre
tend to be so any longer. By its policy
of imperialism it would bring under the
protection of the American flag millions
of laborers, able and willing to live on a
few cents a day, who would compete with
the laborers of the United States.
The speech states ptainly the attitude of
the Democratic party on the Nicaragua
canal question. The canal should be an
American institution, wholly under Amer
ican control, to be open to the commerce
of the world in time of peace, but to be
fortified, and to be managed for the beet
interests of the United States In time of
The speech will make a flrst-clase cam
paign document. It states briefly, but lum
inously, the main differences between the
Democratic and Republican parties, and
gives the reasons why the principles of
the Democratic party are to be preferred.
Senator Wolcott's speech, as temporary
chairman of the Republican Convention,
was perhaps a more finished production,
but it will not prove to be as effective a
campaign document as that of Gov.
INCREASE IN SOUTHERN INDUS
There Is no doubt that the census will
show that there has been a very remark
able Increase In the number of Indus
tries in the South during the last ten
years. The Philadelphia Record, in on
article on this subject, says:
"The Industrial growth of the Southern
states is a perennial source of surprise,
to the South itself as well as to other
sections. Although there Is every reason
why, once started, manufacturing estab
lishments should multiply rapidly in
states so long dormant, the figures often
tax credulity. Indeed, there has been
great exaggeration as to the capital new
ly invested in industrial enterprises in
the South as a whole.”
The Record places a great deal of reli
ance on the reports of trade journals.
No*doubt these journals seek to be cor
rect in their reports. If, however, all of
the Industries reported by them were in
existence, the South would hardly be
big enough to hold them. There would oe
factories enough of one kind and another
in the Southern states to do the manufac
turing for the whole world.
The chief sources of Information of these
trade Journals are the newspapers. The
newspapers report a great many factories
projected which are never built. It often
happens also that one factory Is reported
two or three times, so that the trade jour
nals which depend upon them are misled.
Still, the industrial activity in the South,
since the census of 1880 was taken, has
been very great. And it is only begin
ning. More mills are being built in the
South now than at any Other time In her
history. The development in the iron and
coal sections of Alabama and Tennessee
is phenomenal. Alabama alone is now
making 40 per cent, of all of the iron used
in American foundries and pipe works. It
is stated that the total American exports
of pig iron in 1899, were 228,000 tons. Of
this amount Alabama furnished 167,000
tons, or three-fourths of the entire Amer
ican shipments. In the Alabama district
there are produced nearly 5,000 lons of
pig iron a day. It is a question of only
a few years when the industries of Ala
bama will rival those of Pennsylvania.
In the Carolinas and this state cotton
factories are increasing so fast that they
promise to use the greater part of the
cotton these three states produce. That
condition of affaire has about been reach
ed in the Carolinas now. Great as the
indue trial development of the South has
been during the last ten years,, it will ap
pear insignificant in comparison with
that which will take place in the next
The board of health of Hoboken, N. J.,
has made a ruling requiring people who
keep crowing cocks in their back yards
to pay $1 license fee for each cock. This
is in the Interest of peace and quiet. The
peace, quiet, comfort and health of citi
zens of Savannah receive very little at
tention along the line of limiting the
animals and fowls which may be kept
in back yards. In this city a householder
may pack bis back yard to its capacity
with horses, cows, chickens, dogs, or any
other beasts or fowls without offending
anything except the olfactories of the
neighbors and the rules of health. A
whole block may be rendered disgusting
ly malodorous by a cow lot in the center
of it, but there is no redress for the
neighboring householders nor for the
landlord, the renting value.of whose prop
erty. is depreciated. Notwithstanding
Savannah Is a city, it still clings to many
backwoods country-village ways.

A pitiable lot of “ifs” have been sug
gested by the great Hoboken fire. If the
tug boat men had been less mercenary
fewer lives would have been lost. If the
dock*? had been provided with fire walls
the flames would not have spread so rap
idly, if at all. If the portholes of the
Saaie had been larger her imprisoned
might have crawled through them and
been saved. If the ships had had steam
up, they might have becked out of the
docks and escaped. A New York steve
dore supplies another suggestive “if,” to
the effect that if the authorities of that
city do not take greater precautions with
respect to the docks there will one of these
days be a worse lire on the New York
wuier front than there was in Hoboken.
“Where the flag has been set up,” says

Everybody believes that it was William

work in nearly every other delegation.
Abo-ut the time Chairman Harrby called

The tendency nowadays is to guard the
monopoly of a patent more securely* than
ever, for the profit in making any* new de
vice lies largely in the fact that it is a

—The Italian civil list is one of the
highest in Europe, but a large portion of
the 16,000,000 lire of which it consists
is absorbed by the cost of keeping up the
plethora of royal palaces in all parts of
the kingdom. For some time plans have
been considered for reducing Ihe number
of these costly residences, for which the
royal family has but slight use. It now
appears that ail these crown lands and
residences are to be-sold either to pri
vate purchasers or to the state adminis
tration of domains, except the royal park
at Monza, the royal palaces at Turin,
Venice, Florence, Rome and Naples and
the hunting grounds at Valsavaranche

—The latest authentic snake story Is
from North Glen wood Farm, near Eas
ton, one of the country pa Ices in Talbot
county, Md. The other day* a big black
snake was seen emerging from an ice
pound. It was killed. A protuberance
was noticed about the middle. The make
was chopped in two, and a porcelain tur
key* nest egg rolled out. Capt. Noble
Robinson was tenant on the farm last
year. Mrs. Robinson raised turkeys, us
ing china nest eggs in their nests. She
says that fourteen months ago she missed
the nest egg from a nest near the ice
pond. She supposed a boy who had the
range of the meadows had taken it. When
the egg from the snake was shown to
Mrs. Robinson she Identified it as one
she had lost by a certain incised mark
upon it. The snake had carried the china
egg fourteen months in his vermiform
appendix apparently without having ap
pendicitis. But he must have thought
very hard of It, and that it was very
singular that it could not be digested.

Crown Princess- Sada, who recently was
wedded to the heir of the Mikado’s throne,
was educated in the Peeresses' Institute
In Tokio, and while there was the favorite
pupil of one of the American lady teach
ers. The young girl had a passion for the
study of the heraldry of her own land,
and extended it to that of her teacher's
native country. It was her delight to read
and talk of colonial times and to look at
old prints picturing the men, women and
fashions of the American colonies at that
period. She had many tastes in common
with her teacher, but upon one point they
disagreed. It was the wearing of the na
tive Japanese costume. The Princess would
persist in donning stays, skirts, shirt
waists and ail the adjuncts of the West
ern toilet. One day the American teacher
said to her: “Your Highness, why do you
not wear your beautiful kimono to-day?
It is so much more picturesque than that
tailor-made gown." Sada laughed, and,
passing a book of old colonial prints to
her, replied: “Why don’t you wear clothes
like those your ancestresses wore?"
—When the atmosphere of Rome is be

others who can afford it, are making
their exodus for the villeggiatura, or

Pope and his secretary of state, Cardinal
Rampolla. Leo XIII, however, is not al
