Hill is evidently the favorite Vt - n S ivannahians, i>artly because a good mai y of them wanted to see him Pres ident oner, but chiefly because they be jit.v has a show for carrying New York for the ticket. This is not regarded ae a very glittering- prospect, however, and bets that New Y'ork will not go Dem txTjiic. even with Hill on the ticket, are finding no takers. There is a very strong sentiment here against Congressman Towne of Minnesota, chiefly because of the idea that with Towne on the ticket its tendencies would lx so strongly Populistic that any Demo ocrat who felt a disinclination to support the ticket could refuse to do so without bring liable to censure. Congressman Les ter says, however, that so far as personal qualifications go, Towne is one of the best nitn that could be named. He does not consider him as entirely eligible for the nomination, however, for the simple rea son that he is h Silver Republican and has newr claimed to be a Democrat. Personally, i adrnirc Towne very high ly.” said Col. Lester. “He is a splendid Ml w and one of the cleanest and ablest men with whom I have had the pleasure of serving in Congress. He would dis charge his duties, if elected, fearlessly and faithfully. Towne would undoubtedly adi strength to the ticket in the North west. but his nomination might have me opposite effect in the East.” < o . L ster daes rot consider Hill the most available candidate for Vice Presi dent. tie is very doubtful of the ability of the Democrats to carry New Y'ork state on a 15 to 1 platform, no matter who the candidates may be, and he thinks with the antagonism to Hill in the ranks of the party In New York that he would not prove as strong a candidate there and elsewhere in the North as many people down this way stem to think. The announcement that the convention had adopted a straightout 16 to 1 plank in the platform cast a considerable damp er over the spirits of the Democratic bus iness men here, who were coping that they would be given a chance to vote ttic ticxft without stult lying themselves. The fact that the 16 to 1 plank is brief and that it is not given the leading place in Ar platform will doubtless have some as will the further fact that dec- Himinns aga us. trusts and imperialism made the leading planks. ■ This was not generally understood yes ■erday, however, and business men who Rvere approached upon the subject were faisposed to take an unfavorable view of Fthe Democratic prospects. Some did not hesitate to declare that if things should ♦urn out to be as reported, and es pc dally if Towne, or some other Popu list. should be named with Bryan, they would vote the Republican ticket openly. A reading of the entire platform, how ever. may cause them to view the mat ter in a different light. FOllt IIAII ONES. Recorder Handed Out Sentences* to a Quartette of Evildoers. In the Recorder’s Court yesterday morn ing Owen Stiles, who was arrested the night before for lighting at Lincoln Park, for cursing on a street car and for car rying concealed weapons, was given thir ty days on the chaingang for the first two charges and was remanded o the City Court for carrying concealed weapons. George Houston and Carrie Richardson, two colored prisoners who had been “jo in* time” in the lockup and who on the niurht before became obstreperous and both threatened and cursed the turnkey, were given thirty clays each on the gang. Hudas Chisholm, colored, for beating a woman and for firing his pistol supposed ly at the policeman, who, in response to the woman’s cries, came to make the ar rest, was charged with an assault with intent to murder and remanded to the Superior Court. Contrary to the general run of events, thftre was no criminal aftermath to the July 4 celebration, that is, if the police record yesterday counts for anything, there being only eight arrests up to mid night Lauu'l Washington, a colored hoy, 11 years oOd, was sent in for borrowing n horee and wagon without the permission ei its owner.

The Kind You Have Always Bought Sicre.tnra of BEST CHINESE FEEL PITY. Continued from First Page. Sir Robert Hart, the inspector of customs, and hi* staff escaping to the legation Intense indignation is felt at S .anghal against.the supposed action of the Povv is in i*s trait, in# Japan f;om an army to Pekin immediately. The Powers are accused of being guilty of murder as are Prince Tuan s fanatics, and Sir Robert liar,, is b.amed for not having in f rmed the f reigners of the imimns im ports of arms, espec.a ly a few weeks ago. The Chinese commanders are preparing for a long, severe campaign and are put ting into operation pit,ns drawn up by German officers last year for resisting an invasion from the seaboard by Russia. NOT ANMOIS FOR W %R. Naval Officer* Think Mi**tonnrie* the CnuMe of Trouble*. Washington, D. C., July s.—Naval offi cers are not very enthusiastic over the prospect of the United States going to war with China. This feeling is not due to any love our sailors have for the Chi nese, but because of the belief that die foreign missionaries ore the cause of the present troubles. There is a universal feeling among the navies of all nations against the missionaries, as the latter are regarded by sea-faring men as contin ual mischief makers in foreign countries. A veteran naval officer, now on duty In Washington, while discussing the Chinese situation, remarked that he would glory in a conflict with the “Yellow Bellies,” as he characterized the Chinese, if we had a just cause. “But,” he continued, “I hate to see our country, or any other country, drawn into a war on account of thee* meddling missionaries. I have had con siderable experience with them, and I have found that instead of confining themselves to preaching Christianity, they are for ever meddling in matters that do not con cern them, and a majority of them at© nothing but trouble makers for thv* ca tions they represent. . “Sailors all over the world,” continued the veteran, “will verify this statement, and l doubt if you search the United States navy through and through >ou could find an experienced officer or sailor who has any sympathy for foreign mis sionaries. I remember hearing it said of old Rear Admiral Greer, who was one of the most devout Episcopalians I ever knew, that he had made it the rule of his life never to contribute a cent to the support of foreign missions. He was ves tryman in a well known Episcopal Church in his city and on more than one occa sion u* every church meeting, he de nounced foreign missionaries and gave his reasons for declining to contribute one cent for their support. Whenever the customary collection was taken up for foreign missions, he made it a rule to place a liberal contribution in an envelope and mark plainly that the sum was not to be used for foreign missions. 1 have known a number of church-going naval officers who follow' the example of Rear Admiral Greer in this direction." The popularity of former Senator Hill for the vice presidency and the favor with which his name was received by ihe Southern and Eastern Democrats are heretofore unpublished incident in connec tion with the campaign of 1896. Mr. Bryan then, as now. sincerely and honestly be lieved that he was the inspired leader of the Democratic hosts and he was fully impressed with the idea that he was or dained lo lead his party along the straight and narrow path to success, and with that object in view, he felt called upon to turn down an ambitious man of the party who was not in absolute accord with ium on ihe free silver question. It will be remem itered that many of the delegates to the Chicago convention, if not two-thirds of that body, were anxious to bestow upon John R. McLean of Ohio the vice presi dential nomination. Asa member of the convention, Mr. Bryan realized the strength of the McLean sentiment. After he had been nominated for the presidency, he induced his friends to bring about an adjournment till the next day before nominating the vice president. In the meantime, Mr. Bryan went to Mr. Mc- Lean’s headquarters and solicited a per sonal interview. It is said that on that occasion. Mr. Bryan, with tears in his eyes, pleaded with Mr. McLean not to per mit his nomination for the vice presidency to be accomplished. While professing most cordial and friendly personal regard for Mr. McLean, Mr. Bryan frankly declared that entertaining the high moral princi ples he did in connection with national affairs, he could not conscientiously have a man on the ticket watt him who was a typ cal representative of everything in a !>. litical sense to which he (Bryan) was religiously as well as politically opposed, it was a most r.markable interview’. Mr. Bryan pleaded almost desperately to con vince Mr. McLean that he was not only a believer in the gold standard and interest ed in railroad corporations and trusts, all of which lie said wtre repugnant to the great principles involved in the contest. So earnest and impressive was Mr. Bry an's plea that Mr. McLean tinally con sented to stifle whateyer personal ambi tion he may have entertained in connec tion wi-h the vice presidency, and the re sit,t was the nomination of Mr. Sewall of Maine, whom every Democrat now real izes was a heavy handicap to the ticket or ibj. GEORGIAN IN COMMAND. ••.lack" Meyers Lending the Defend ers in tlie Chinese Capital. Washington, July s.—The navy depart ment has received the following oable.- gram from Admiral Kempff; “Che Foo.—Meyers of the Oregon com mands force Pekin. Capt. llall and Dr. Lippitt also there." Capt. John T. Meyers, or "Jack” Mey ers, who, according to Admiral Kempff's dispatch commands the legation defenders at rekin. was born in Germany and was appointed from the stale of Georgia, en tering the marine corps in Remember, 18S7. He is the reputed author of the fa mous satirical poem, “Iloch de Kaiser.” He was attached to the flagship Balti more and was afterward assigned to duty with the marines aboard the Oregon. Cap'.. Newt H. Hall, U. S. M. C., was born In and appointed from Texas. He graduated at the Naval Academy in 1895 with Ensign Worth Bagley and Lieut. Breckinridge, both ol whom lost their lives 111 thaenar with Spain. Dr. Thomas M. Lippitt. assistant sur geon, was born in Berryvllle, Va., in 1873. He was commissioned an assistant sur geon in the navy June 28, 1898, and served on the hosivital ship Solace during Ibe Spanish War. After the war lie was at (ached lo the flagship Baltimore on Ihe Asiatic station and lias since served on the Oregon and then on the Newark, going to Taku with the marine detachment ,tboard her. OFFICIALS THINK THEM DEAD. Little Hope In Washington for Safe ty of the Foreigner* . Washington, D. C., July 5.-43tate de partment officials confess that they fear the reports received from Admiral Kempff and. others do not show the actual state of conditions at Pekin ami other points in China. It is now believed at the statt and navy departments, that the foreign representatives, including the American Consulate, at Pekin, have been murdered by the rebelllouf Chinese. A distinguished siate department offi rial expreseed the following opinion to day. after u long conference with the Chinese minister. “Considering that the THE MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY, JULY f>, 1000. information, thus far received, through •mv and and diplomatic channels, which is based on statements brought in by “run ners” from Pekin, and other points within tho lines of the insurrectionists, fails to bring any intelligence from Conger. I am imp* ,- and to believe we have not yet heard the. worst side of the horrible story.” Minister Wu displayed the greatest anx •ciy to-day for information Concerning the real situation in his country, and re luctantly confessed that he had not been in direct communication* with his own government since June 19 He was par ticularly anxious to learn w’hether the official advices received by this govern ment confirm the reports that Prince Tuan, the leader of the Boxers, is suffi ciently powerful to overthrow’ the Chi nese government and imprison the Em peror and Empress Dowager. Secretary Hay was unable to give Mr. Wu any further light on the subject beyond the official dispatches already received and <hp press reports. The general belief among government officials is that Conger and all foreigners who were in Pekin have been massacred by the Boxers. They are anxiously await ing for the confirmation of this calamity. There was only one dispatch received at the Navy Department to-day from Ad miral Kempff, dated Chee Foo, July 4. In it he announces that Capt. John T. Myers, commander of the United States Marine Corps at Pekin; Capt. Hall, Dr. Lippeti, assistant surgeon of the navy, are in the beleaguered city. This was in reply to a cablegram from the Secre tary, asking what additional American officers were in Pekin. At the war, state and navy departments the impression grows stronger daily that every foreigner in Pekin has been massa~ ered. Asa further evidence of this- be lief, department officials are at work pre paring biographical sketches of all the military, naval and civil employes at the Chinese, capital, and so far as they are able, they are endeavoring to secure in formation concerning other Americans who are supposed to be at the mercy of the murderous Boxers and their accomplices. Requests for this information has become so general that the departments- concluded it would be advantageous, as well as time saving, to prepare in advance this infor mation so far as they are able to secure it. BOXERS CONTROL THE PALACE. Even Prince* mid Other High Oiunl tarle* Worship Boxer*' God. Shanghai, July 5.—A messenger with of ficial advices, who left Pekin June 27, says that over 100,000 Chinese soldiers and riot ers surrounded the legations, but in spite of fiere'e attacks they had not then suc ceeded in breaking through the walls. The messenger also said that all per sons connected with the palace were pro- Boxer, even the princes and dukes, and every one worshipping the god of the Boxers. The gates of the inner city, it was add ed, were open for half a day. A CHIN AM AVS REPORT. Story He Tell* of the Situation in Pekin l’* to June 25. Paris, July 3.—The French consul at Che Foo telegraphs that a Chinaman* who left Pekin June 2u reports that all the min isters and residents then assembled at the British legation, the French, German and Japanese legations were guarded by their own detachments, and M. Plchon, the French minister, and his wife were well. The other legations, the Custom House and the missions had been burned. The foreign troops had lost six men kilted and had six men wounded, including the com mander of the British detachment. EMPEROR ((POUTS SUICIDE. Uoxviißpr Bin pres* Also Attempt* Her Own Life. (Copyright, 1900, by the Associated Press.) Shanghai, July 6.—Emperor Kwang Su committed suicide by taking opium under compulsion of Prince Tuan June 19. The Empress Dowager also took poison, but is still alive, though reported to tie insane from the effects of the drug. The above has been officially reported to the German consular staff. DISTURBANCES MAY SPREAD. Gooduoxv Say* Southern Province* Mny Become Affected. Washington, July 5.—A cablegram has been received by the state department from Consul General Goodnow at Shanghui declaring that there is imminent danger of an extension of the Boxer rebellion to the southern Chinese provinces, unless the international forces are maintained and increased. RESOLUTION'S FOR BROWN. Citizen* of Pnlttftkl Compliment the ( oin mill*loner. Hawkinsville, Ga., July s.—At a mas* meeting of the citizens of this county this morning, presided over by Hon. P. H. Lovejoy, the following resolutions were adopted: “Whereas, Gov. Candler in filling a va cancy on the Railroad Commission ~of Georgia tnnde his selection from this, the county of Pulaski, by appointing our dis tinguished fellow citizen, the Hon. J. P.

Incident* nf That Year** Ma**acre of French ( onwul and tlinslonnrle*. From the Pall Mall Gazette. "We must have a man-of-war, for when there is none disorders increase. There is no doubt that the Chinese are most hostile to all foreigners; the fire is smoldering and may at any moment break forth.” Thus wrote, on Juno 20, 1870. Mr. Lay, British Gonsul at Tien Tsin, io Mr. Wade, the British minister. The smoldering five burst into a conflagration on the following day. Early in the morning the gong was heard summoning the butchers to the shambles. A vast horde of China's lowest scum surrounded the French consulate, hurled stones at its gates, windows and doors. Too late came M. Fontanler’s awakening; be his negligence what it may, he faced his death as Frenchmen in face of danger are wont to meet it, fighting to the last. He was cut down, his head severed, his ftody mutilated. The mob forced their way into the gardens of the consulate, mere massacred M. Simon, M. aiul Mme. Tho massin, the friends of M. Fontanter. Sep arated from the French consulate by a wall were the French Catholic Church, Presbtery, convent and orphanage. Fathers Chevrler and uu, the latter a native priest, hastened to meet the riot ers in the hope of being in time to ad minister the last rites of their church to the French consul and his friends. They were at once surrounded and murdered, their ixxlies ripped open their entire length and afterward thrown into the river. The maddened mob made their way to the con vent gate. Hero Sister Monguet awaited' them. A cut from u two-handed sabre severed her.skull; her body was shame fully mutilated. Sister Andreoni was the next to fall by a blow w’ith a hatchet; she was impaled, and her body carried high over the heads of the rioters. Sister Clave lin met her murderers at the southeast angle of the convent. She was dragged to the pharmacy, and while still alive her eyes and her heart were torn out; her shrieks rose high above the yells and ex ecrations of her assassins. Sister Yiollet, a delicate nun. fainted, and was killed. Sister Legras was cut in halves. Sister O’Sullivan was seized close to the kitchen. The rioters seeing a saucepan of boiling water close at hand, threw it over her. The poor Sister, maddened with pain and half blinded, rushed to the chapel, where she was dispatched. An appaling death awaited Sisters Pavilion and Tillet. They had sought refuge with some of their or phan children in the crypt beneath (he chapel. Here the W'retches kindled a fire and roasted alive their victims, the men holding their‘legs and arms. Sister Lenu was the last to meet her death from a blow of a lance on the temple. The ambassador in Pekin signed a col lective note of protest to the Chinese min ister of foreign affairs, whose government paid a substantial money indemnity for loss of property, exiled several mandarins of lesser degree and decapitated certain cool lew who came forward as substitutes for those really guilty, in consideration of the sum of 500 taels—about £l2s—being handed to their families, and themselves being laid to earth in fine clothes and coffins.
