a negro named Turner Johnson, alias Dot

Henry Harris and William Burney, from

On yesterday Johnson used some very
profane and obscene language in the pres
ence of a lady, a member of the family of
C. J. McDonald, a leading merchant nnd
citizen here, and a warrant was sworn out
for his arrest and placed in the hands of
J. T. Gill for execution.
Gill and Curtis went to Johnson's house
near here and arrested him, and were re
turning along the public road when John
son demanded that the warrant be read.
Gill started to comply and Johnson
quickly drew a pistol, fired twice at Gill,
and turning, fired two shots at Curtis. At
the same time the negroes concealed in
the bushes beside the road fired at Giil
end Curtis, but only struck Curtis, ha

shot from a Winchester struck him in the

Gill, and the latter is positive that he
struck Johnson at least twice.
Only One of Them Caught.
The negroes then came out of the bush
es in whic'h they had been concealed and
opened a fusilade on Gill, who retreated
to the station after placing Curtis under
a tree by the roadside. Arriving here, he
sent Dr. Roach to Curtis, but the doctor
found him dead.
Gill summoned a crowd of citizens, hut
on arriving at the scene of the outrage
the negroes had disappeared.
Later on Hines was captured and is now
in charge of the sheriff.
A large number of citizens from differ

and many are scouring the country for

Goodnow at Shanghai. The State Depart
ment declined to make known the con
tents of the Goodnow dispatch. This
opened a wide field for conjecture, the
most generally accepted view being that
Mr. Goodnow hod advised against the plan
of delivering the -legationers outside the
city of Pekin.
Getting; nt Cipher MosNnges.
The cipher experts were busy with a
dispatch from Consul Fowler at Che Foo,
which wns so unintelligible that it had to
b* returned 10 the telegraph company to
be repeated. So far as it could be
deciphered, it appears to repeat a message
sent by Minister Conger to Fowler, tell
ing the latter that the situation was be
coming more critical at Pekin and that
the Chinese authorities were seeking to
compel the legationers to leave the city
under Chinese escort. It is possible that
the message, which is quite long, will con
vey additional information when its com
plications are unraveled.
With the army at Matow, it is felt that
any one of several conditions might be
presented ir. the near future. The Chi
nese officials concurred in the belief ex
pressed by the Chinese minister at Lon
don that there would be a speedy and
sudden change, and peace within the
next few weeks. On the other hand, Ba
ron Speck von Sternberg regards Tung
Chow, midway between Matow and Pekin,
as the real battleground and Secretary
Hoot Is inclined to accept this view.
Some of the Japanese officials believed
that when the allies reach Tung Chow
they would find Pekin a deserted c*ity
ahead of them, os it was recoiled that
these tactics of withdrawal had occurred
in 1860 when the British-French expedi
tion reached Tung Chow. In the ab
sence of all positive information as to
what the allied armies will do, these con
jectures from the best posted sources
serve to show the various serious possi
bilities forming u part of the present
*Ot Like Conger's Message.
The message of the French minister at
Pekin, M. Pichon, to the French foreign
office, was a; first regard and here as iden
tical with the last Conger message which
the state d* partment has not made pub
ic. But without disclosing the nature of
the Conger message, the officials made a
sufficient comparison between the Pichon
and Conger messages to show that they
W( re n. t identical in language or general
B'Gtermnt. On the contrary it was clear ,
that each minis or was foi ward'ng to his !
Ro\ernir.cnt his cwn advices on he sit
uation. and that there had been no con
sultation between the ministers before
these two dispatches were f rwarded.
While the messages are not alike, it is
understood that they agree on considera
ble of the information obtained.
The arrival of President McKinley In
'own is look'd forward to with great
interest in \l w of tie gravity of the.
crll. The presidential pirty will be here
**rly to-monow morning, and an ex ende 1
conference between the PreJident, Secre
tary Root, Acting Secretary Adee and
others is likely to occur early in the day.
This probably w.ll assume the aspect of
a cabinet conference if indeed it is not
felt desirable to hold a special cabinet
meeting:. The regular meeting day of the
cabinet is on Fr day, at which time there
will be further opportunity of going over
the Chinese developm nt^.

No Preparations Made to Supply
Troops to That End.
Washington. Aug. 15.—1 tis considered
significant that no preparations are be

American forces in China. Both the com
missary and quar;e master’s departments
are ready to purchase and ship supplies
for the Chinese expeditionary force such
as would be needful in a winter cam
pa;gn. There are certain supplies which
would have to he taken, and that quite
speedily, unles there is a strong hope
that the American army will be out of
China before the Gulf of Pechili freezes
over, which usually happens about the
first of November.
Prepara:ions made up to a recent date
looktd to the quartering of the American
force on Chinese soil through the winter
season. It cannot te ru and that this expec
tation has been entirely abandoned, but
it is certain that some of the final pur
chases and preparations are suspended for
the present, as though there were con
siderable probability that they would not
have to be made at all.

condition that this does not entail the

Chicago. Aug. 15.—Mr. Bryan, Mr. Stev

Sunny side Park on the occasion of tho
annual meeting of the United Irish Socie
ties of Cook county. The meeting W 33
presided over by Rev. F. L Reynolds and
the attendance was large, notwithstanding
the stormy weather.
Mr. Bryan's speech was the first of the
series, but before he was heard, the as
sembly, a t the suggestion of Judge 11. V.
Cannon, adopted an address from which
the following is an extract:
“We are unalterably opposed to any al
liance, tacit or open, with any European
monarchy and shall resist in every prac
tical and legal way the imposition of im
perialism and militarism upon a people
consecrated to freedom, and in this spirit,
and with an abiding trust in the good
sense and patriotism of the vast body of
American people, we commit, as for as
we may, the fortunes of the republic of
America to the strength and determination
of citizens born on American soil, aided
by those sons from other lands, who
sought here a refuge from open tyranny,
judicial misconstruction and military ex
Mr. !tr>nii'a Speech.
Mr. Bryan spoke as follows:
"I do not want you to think that my
happiness depends upon any public office
within the g ft of the peDpk* of this coun
try. I lave a higher ambition than to
be President (great applause). The man
whese bap imss dfpen s up n what oth
er.* do for him may be doomed to idsap
poi: tment, )ui if < ne’s happiness dep nds
upon what he does for o hers, he will not
be disappointed. (Renewed applause.) I
hope you will credit me with the ambi
tion that is within the nach of every cit
izen of this land, an ambition which al!
('an t-ntertain and which, to my mind, is
a higher ambi ion than ihat for any office
and that is an ambition to do what 1 can
to make this na ion so great and so good
that to be a simple will (be greater
than to be a king in any o her land.
“The object of my speech is a practical
one. I want to use this occasion to point
to a great lesson. I believe the fact that
this nation has here the representatives
of all of the races of Europe gives it a
peculiar advantage among the nations. The
fact that the best blood of all the civilized
races mingles here in the development of
ihe American character enables this nation
to turn upon every question the light of
universal history and avoid the dangers
from which other nations have suffered
(applause). When a problem arises in this
country, we can look back and find wnat
has been the experience of others.
A Word for the Irishman.
‘‘lf we knew the history of our own
people only we would not be so well
prepared to detect danger before we suf
fer from it, but if any one does not know
the growth of landlordism and its dan
gers he has only to ask an Irishman
what landlordism means and he need not
read history to find out. (Grear Applause.)
If any one wants to know whether an
alien government is good, all he has
'o do is to ask an Irishman
what his opinion is of an alien govern
ment, although the govfrning p>wer be
separated from the governed only by a
narrow channel. (Arplause.) If you wan’
to know' what militarism ?s and what its
burdens are, all you have to do is to ask
a German who came to this country to
avoid the militarism of the old world
(Applause.) And so, I might go through
the various ecp rienors of other notions.
The fact that we have here the represen
ta:ivcs of th<se people 'nablfs us to s er.t
the danger afar and to guard against
their experiences here. And T m 8-* my
guess if the American people, thus made
up, will not develop a civilization higher,
greater and m:re enduring than any clv
ilizaton which has pie ed and ours. (Great
Tl* GrenteM Citizen.
‘‘When any one tells me that we want
to imitate an Anglo-Saxon civilization l
tell him that an American civilization is
higher than anw other—no matter what it
is (great applause). Ido not mean to
say one word against any Anglo-Saxon.
I have not a word to say against the Celt,
the Latin, the Gre*k or tha Teuton. But
I do believe that the American in whom
are combined the virtuosefthem all is the
greats citizens the world has ever known
e(great applause), and that the civilization
to be developed here will lift humanity to
a higher plane than it has occupied in the
days gone by.” (Renewed applause.)

Washington, Aug. 15.—C01. nnd Mrs.
Myron Herrick will accompany the pres
ident and Mrs. McKinley upon their re
turn to the city on Friday and will re
main here for some days, probably until
the president returns to Canton. It is
the present plan of the president and
Mrs. McKinley to go hock to their Ohio
home in about a week or ten days, unless
there should arise some great emergency
to make the president's presence here
necessary. During their absence from the
White House there has been a. thorough
renovation of the residence part of the
building, which the president has to use
both as office and home. The private din
ing room has been done over in red and
presents a vastly improved appearance.
< huflFee** Clear Despatched.
The officials of the war department are
thanking their lucky stars that the com
mander in charge of the American forces
in China is not a certain portly gentle
man now resident at San Francisco. Not
that these officials hesitate to give Gen.
Shafter full credit for the success of the
military operations about Santiago, but
because the dispatches they are receiv
ing from Gen. Chaffee recall the trying
times when they were - seeking io get
information out of the dispatches sent
by “Shafter, Major General, Command

fee’s dispa* ches have, on t'he contrary,
been most satisfactory. He seems to
realize the desire on the part of the de
partment for everything possible in the
way of information, and he has given
it. A number of his dispatches have nor
been given to the public In their en

A Doubtful Rumor.
Democratic leaders here are inclined to
be skeptical over the report sent from
Cleveland that former Mayor McKlsson
has decided to support Bryan. While they
realize McKlsson s antipathy for Sena

he will allow that antipathy to take him
into Democratic ranks. They are inclined
to believe that if the r port is true, lie
will prove a valuable addition to the anti-
McKinley forces, and will give additional
f ouhle to the Republicans in the Pres
ident's own state. But they have not be
gun thouilng yet, for they very much
doubt the truth of the rport.
FUNERAL WILL BE PRIVATE.
Burial of Coilis P. Hnntlngton to
Take Place Friday.
New York, Aug. 15.—The body of Collls
P. Huntington, who died on Monday at
his lodge in the Adirondack*, was brought
to this city to-day on a special train over
the Now York Central road, reaching the
Grand Centra! station at 4:35 o’clock. The
body now rests in Us casket in the library
of the Huntington town house at No. 2
East Fifty-eeventh street, where it was
taken directly from the station.
The funeral services, It has been an
nounced. will be strictly private, and will
be held at 11 o’clock Friday morning.
Other details concerning the funeral have
not yet been decided upon and will be
made public later.
When the train drew into the station and
the party left their special car, Mrs.
Huntington, wearing deep mourning and
heavily veiled, was escorted to the family
carriage at the entrance. She was driven
at once to the family residence.
In speaking of thedtath of Mr. Hunting
ton, Private Secretory Miles, who was
present at the time, said to-rlay:
“His death was very sudden. It was
due to heart disease, or to be more is h
nical, Dr. Coley slates that death was
due to cerebral apoplexy. Mr. Hunting
ton was attacked with a severe coughing
just after retiring. His wife and he oc
cupied the same apartment, and when the
coughing attack dime on Mrs. Hunting
ion gave him a glass of stimulants, a* she
had always done before. This seemed to
relieve him for a moment. Then lie said
to Mrs. Huntington. ‘I am very, very ill.’
Those were his last words, and he sink
into unconsciousness a moment later.’’
Princess Hatzfeld, the late Mr. Hunt
ington's adopted daughter, who is now In
London, and who was to have sailed for
home yesterday on the. steamer Majestic, !
did not sail. She was notified by coble of
the dath of Mr. Huntington, and being
nonh'e 10 be present at the funeral, will
delay her coming for u short time.
While no decision has been reached a:,

Washington. An*. 15.—The war depart
ment has made public the Filipino cor
respondence captured some months ago
by Gen. Funston's command at Luzon. It
was translated from the Spanish under the
direction of Capt. John R. M. Taylor, of
the Fourteenth Infantry, who is in charge
of insurgent records.
There was a letter from Montague R.
Lcverson, dated at Fort Hamilton, New
York, July 17, 1899, and adddrettsed to
Senor G. Apacible. It says in part:
"Dear Sir and Brother: Our friend Al

your name as, one to whom I should write
as a representative Filipino. I am a mem
ber of the Anti-Imperial let League of
Boston, of whioh George S. Boutwell Is
president and Irving Winslow is secre
tary. I have published many articles
and letters denouncing the piratical war
carried on by President McKinley against

It is this, you should sleze some official

States and then Inform the foreign con

council of wnr for piracy and writs to
said consuls to have representatives pres

It Is legal.
"Piracy would be shown by conducting
a war In violation of the usages of civi

the fact of the consent to killing defense,
loss prisoners and con-combatants, men
and women and children, in cold blood,
and In robbery by officers and soldiers

the United States.
"I shall not give you the heads of this
appeal. I merely point out some thing*
which will especially Influence the people
For example, a reference to the Delara
tlon of Independence must be inserted, hut
I believe that it is also necessary for you
to mention in your appeal the points I
have made above to show that this war is
piracy, using them to bring out the want
of Christian feeling of the soldiers.
"You must also show that McKinley
keeps the people of the United States In
ignorance of the true facta, that he and
the members of the cabinet have d*lbr
ately lied to secure the ratification of the
truth of peace with Spain without the
Clause which would have assured the lib
erty of the Filipinos. That they deliber
ately lied when they said that Agoncillo
advised Agulnaldo to tight and that a tel

to secure the passage of the treaty.”

Another letter dated Singapore, June Id
1899, from W. O. St. Clair, editor of the

Consul Moseley, at Singapore. There also
was some suggestion that Prntt fovored

THE WISE ONES
Take advantage of and watch our advertisements.
How we do like them to be on time and get the
choice af our bargains, as they make up for part
of our loss by the advertising they give us among
their friends. We feel that a genuine bargain
well placed is a great advertisement for our new
store. Some of you will come next week (after
seeing what your neighbor bought) and ask to see
those SI.OO and $1.25 Serges that we advertised
at 34c. Another day’s selling like yesterday
and you will regret that you were not a little
quicker. We have added about 100 more Shirt
Waists at 29c. (Tu is will be all.)
Will sell to-day about 35 dozen Misses’ Fast
Black Stockings (Hermsdorf dye) at 5c pair, or
