HATE THE EMPRESS
Portland Chinese Have No
Use for Tsi Ann.
BELIEVE SHE EGGS ON THE BOXERS
Second-Street Merchants Tallc Inter
estingly of the Situation in
Their Ifatlve Land.
Progressive and modern are the views
of the leading Chinese merchants of j
Portland in regard to the Chinese situa- j
tion and the probable outcome of the
Oriental embroglio. A surprising fact
brought out by an interview with the
Chinese of this city is their strong feel
ing of sympathy with the cause of the
foreigners and missionaries in China, and ,
their fierce and bitter hatred of the Box-
crs and the Empress Dowager. Ex- I
pressions of this nature are not made I
for the sake of policy in order to de- j
lude an American observer as to their i
real feelings, for the Chinese merchants .
of the United States are bound to the 1
American policy from motives of self- I
Interest arising from commercial reasons, I
and the progressive ideas they have ac- '
quired in the Occident. Their feelings
are also strong against the domination
of China by Russia or Japan, and they
favor the English and American powers,
if any outside control of China should
be found necessary.
But how they hate the queen! An Or
cgonlan man endeavoring to ascertain the
real views of the Chinese in the situa
tion in the East, was struck with the
bitterness with which the Empress Dow
ager is hated. One Chinese remarked:
1 like to kill her." Another said, "I like
to raise an army against her," and an
other still expressed the wish, "I hope
Europe overthrow her soon and kill her."
The Chinese have a Arm belief that
she is responsible for all the mischief;
that she is inciting the Boxers against
the foreigners, and that she, the miser
able grasper of power, has wrongfully
imprisoned Kwang Hsu, the rightful em
peror, the good end true monarch, who
was leading the Chinese from a state of I
slumber Into the walks of enlightened I
and progressive nations. Their dream
of the future is Kwang Hsu restored to
power, with able Chinese and European i
advisers, with the head of the cruel em-
press chopped squarely off and adorning I
some gate to the royal city, and a reign !
of modern law. order, commerce and
progress prevailing throughout the em- j
pire. Open ports, enlightened ideas, com
petent leadership, banishment of the old
superstitions and conservative customs I
all these the American Chinese longs
for, and also for a powerful Chinese na
tion, with National spirit and govern
ment, Instead of governmental powers
scattered and diffused among the vice
roys of the provinces, and a reign of
terror, murder and anarchy prevailing.
Seld Sack's Views.
Seid Back, one of Portland's most prom
inent Chinese merchants, expressed a
hopeful view of the Chinese situation
yesterday. He said: "I am confident
that the present difficulty will soon blow
over. In fact, most of the Chinese In ,
America are loth to believe that a serious j
condition of affairs exists, and feel that
reports from China are very much exag
gerated. All the trouble they attribute j
to the scheming of the Empress. She Is
very unpopular, and is trying to keep '
her power. To do this she stands In with
the Boxers against the foreigners, and
helps them out. She Is naturally con- j
servatlve anyway, and believes In a pol- )
Icy of exclusion, and the old system of
law, which is very bad. Chinese law is
very bad and unjust. It punishes the I
guilty and his family, too. China is !
asleep, and too much sleep for a nation
Is Just like too much sleep for a man.
It makes him crazy. What China needs
to do is to wake up, to adopt new laws,
and to take up new Ideas and civilized '
customs. The Boxers are opposed to J
progress, and are the enemies of those
who wish to bring in new ideas. But '
they will soon be put down, and I hope (
me European powers win restore order
and let In modern civilization. I think Rus
sia and Japan are 'putting a finger in
the pie and stirring up the Boxers, so
that they can step in and get a piece
of China. All the Chinese in America
hate the Empress, and would like to seo
Kwang Hsu Emperor again. He was a
good man, while she is a wicked woman.
The war has not Interfered with busi
ness yet. but it will If things are not
soon straightened out."
"Whnt Hop Chang Says.
Hop Chung, of the Hop Chung Lung
Tee Company, is another progressive
Chinese merchant Interested in Chinese
affairs. Interviewed yesterday on Chlncso
politics, ho said: "About the actual
Boxer situation I know very little no
more than what anyone reads in the pa
pers. The Boxers are called in Chinese
the Ta Too Hwe (Society of the Great
"Sword). They are opposed to foreigners
and to progress. The Empress Is bad,
very bad, and she helps them. Kwang
Hsu, the Emperor, whom she deposed,
was a very good man, and he always
helped his people and did not cut off
heads like the Queen. I Ilka Kong Tu

Believes in Reform.
Quong Lun Tal, of the Quong Lun Tal
Company, is a firm believer in the reform
of China, and talked interestingly of the
reform party organized by Kong "$u Wei,
the great Chinese statesman, assted by
an interpreter. He saids "As affairs
stand now in China, two great parties are
forming: The. Boxers, who are Moham
medans and oppose the foreigners and
Christians, and wish to keep the old
customs, laws, and superstitions, and the
barriers to foreign commerce; and the
reform party, under the leadership of
Kong Tu Wei, the great statesman. This
party desires to open tne empire to the
Influence of foreign nations and lay the
foundations of a modern civilization. Stu
dents of Chinese history know the story
of Emperor Kwang Hsu's overhrow by
the Empress Dowager, because, as she
said, he violated the law.' Kwang Hsu
was under the Influence of progressive
statesmen, and he made no secret of the
reforms, commercial, financial and social,
he wished to put Into effect. But the
Empress Dowager and the Viceroys
.feared the consequences, if the Emperor
acquired too much power, and they knew
that a better administration meant less
money and less power for them. So they
deposed Kwang Hsu. and the Empress
rules Instead, a,nd she cllnss to the old
ideas. The Boxers are supposed to num
ber four or five million people, and have
their power mostly in the north, while
in the south 70 per cent of the people
are in sympathy with Kong Tu "Wei in
his efforts to restore the Emperor.
"Kong Tu "Wei admires American in
stitutions and methods. He was forced
to leave China two years ago by fear
of death at the hands of the Empress
Dowager. He went to Vancouver, B. C,
and there organized the first branch of
the Chinese Reform Association, known
as the Pow Wong Wuey (Society for the
Protection of the Emperor). This society
desires to restore the Emperor and to
reconstruct China. Branches have been
organized all over the world and in every
province in China. An immense fund
has been raised for its purposes. If suc
cessful It would put in force In China
a uniform currency system, equal taxa
tion laws, freedom of religious worship
and other reforms. The reform party Is
interested in suppressing the Boxers, as
that society is Its deadliest enemy to
putting Its plans In effect So you see
the Chinese are not unanimous In sup
porting the Boxers, and with the Inter
vention of the powers, their movement
must fail. I hope the reform party will
In this connection it is probable that
Ralph Piatt's secret mission to Washing
ton was in the Interests of this reform
party, to Intercede for the restoration of
Kwang Hsu to the throne. All the Chi
nese were Interested In hearing the news
of the departure for Singapore of Homer
Lea, a young American, who Joined the
order, and has been superintending the
shipment of arms Into China.

W. J. Cuddj-, of Portland, has accepted
an Invitation from Governor Steunenberg
of Idaho to participate in the Fourth of
July exercises at Caldwell. Mr. Cuddy
officiated at the birth of the town in 1883,
founding the Tribune, the pioneer paper
there. Governor Steunenberg was after
ward in the newspaper business in Cald
well, and has asked Mr. Cuddy to come up
and tell the people how the Fourth was
celebrated when the town was young and
full of youthful enthusiasm. Comment

Magician Kellar, who will appear at
the Marquam Grand tonight, tomorrow
and Fourth of July night, has an illusion
in his entertainment this season, that
savors-strongly of an affinity with that
gentleman who is accredited with horns
and caudal appendage. He causes the
physical body of a pretty girl, locked se
curely in a huge cage, to Instantly dhv
appear, and to reappear as suddenly In
a remote corner of the theater, and a few
seconds later, when she has again been
secured In the cage, transforms her into
a six-foot soldier, in full regimentals.
This illusion illustrates a weird Mahatma
theory in India, which Kellar will ex
plain during his entertainment. All of his

and bewildering, and all are presented
upon a fully-lighted stage. His entire

CHRISTIAN SCIENTISTS DEDICATE

Church on the Coast.
The First Church of Christ, Sclontist,
held its opening services In its new
church edifice, on Twenty-third street,
yesterday, and thero were member of
this denomination from other fields In
the city to share In the event. While
the. Church of Christ, Scientist, has or
ganizations In most of the cities of Ore
gon. Washington and California, this
church building is the first owned by
the denomination on the Pacific Coast.
The building has been unused for a
number of years and received a thorough
overhauling-at the hands of its new own
ers, which makes it now a credit to
the beautiful neighborhood In which it
Services were held at 11 A. M. and
at 3 P. M.. and at the two services the
congregations numbered about 400. The
services were unique In their simplicity
and Impresslvoness, one of the features
of the Christian Science service being
the absence of personal preaching, the
sermon for the day being composed of
passages from the Bible and correlative
sections from the denominational text
book, "Science and Health, With Key
to the Scriptures," by Mary Baker G.
Eddy, which references are read alter
nately by two readers, a man and
woman, appointed by the church.
The service was opened by the con
gregation singing" a hymn, "Shepherd.
Show Me How to Go," after which the
first reader read a brief scripture les
son from the Psalms, which was followed
by silent prayer, concluding with the
audible repetition of the Lord's prayer.
The first reader then delivered a brief
address of welcome and greeting to the
new homo of the church, following which
the second reader gave a short history
of the organization and Its growth since
Its incorporation In 1833. and read con
gratulatory telegrams from sister
churches at Stockton and Santa Barbara,

having received many letters of greeting
from other points on the coast.
The hymn, "How Beauteous on tho
Mountains" was then sung, which was
followed by the sermon-lesson for tne
day, the subject being "God." The regu
lar offertory and collection was omitted
at both services. It having been an
nounced that sufficient funds had been
available through voluntary subscription
to meet all bills of the church, and that
a substantial balance remained in the
treasury. A solo was sung. "Love
Watches Over All," which was followed
by the reading of "The Scientific State
men of Being," from the text-book by
the first reader, and the closing bene
diction. The church is tastily furnished
throughout, and in the rear a public
reading-room has been fitted up. which
will be kept open each day from 11 to i
o'clock for the benefit of inquirers.
Members of the denomination from Se
attle. Tacoma and many other cltien of
the Northwest were present, and all were
delighted with the cozy new edifice and
its tasteful furnishings. The denomina
tion in Portland Is in a healthy condition,
numerically and financially, having
grown steadily since Its organization. The
members of the congregation look for
ward with much satisfaction to the
future of the new church, and believe
that its dedication has marked an im
portant milestone in their career.

MET MNY EXPERIENCES.
Ttto Portland Boys Write of Life at
The many friends of Will Morris and
George T. Myers, Jr., will be glad to
hear of their safe arrival In the new
eldorado at? Nome. Their trip up on
one of the, ship? leaving Seattle last May,
from their letters to their friends here,
will be. engraved in the tablets of their
memory should they live until they are
as aged as Methuselah. The tediousness
of the trip and the constant rolling and
plunging of the steamer was nothing
compared to tho menu, and the way It.
They had some relief when they got
to Dutch Harbor, where one of them
found an uncle, who provided them with
all the comforts that an Alaska village
could afford. They remained thero more
than a week, waiting for the steamer to
get coal. They were there when there
were 20 or 25 steamers In the bay. From
their description ofc the acts of many
of the passengers on the steamers they
were terribly shocked. On their ship
three or four dozen fights a day was a
common occurrence at Dutch Harbor.
Shortly .after the steamer arrived there
the beach was soon converted Into a
pandomonium of saloons, gambling, with
all the paraphernalia connected there
with, and as soon as each ship was coaled
each lot of passengers folded their tents
and left for Nome.
Their ship arrived & Nome the 17th.
Their letters are dated 19th. They were
preparing to put up their tent and could
not give any idea what they would do
until they could look about. They were
principally Interested In getting some
thing to eat. They had visited all the
high-toned restaurants in town. The
prices were rather steep ham and eggs,
the eggs being rather ancient, with a
cup of coffee, was 51 50. Porterhouse
steak, family style, was 55. and you had
to wait until you got It, and no back
talk, and when you did it was nothing
like mother's cooking.
Both of these young fellows went
away with the intention of picking up
gold dust and bringing it home to start
tho Second National Bank of Portland.
The experience they have already had on
the ship has partly fitted them for the
troubles they may encounter in succeed
ing years. They have lived a lifetime in
a very short time and space, and realize
there are more things in heaven, and
earth than they ever dreamed of. When
they get back homo no doubt instead of
starting a bonk they will be writing a
book on mines and mining operations of
thoso that do not know anything of
mines and the cold North.

GET READY TO CELEBRATE
FOURTH OF JULY CARNIVAL
Great Reprntta Will Open the Fes
tivities Line of March for
Tomorrow the great three days' car
nival of the Fourth of July. 1S00, will
be ushered in by the regatta, and in
the evening a grand concert Is to be
given In the park lots. Everything la
In readiness for carrying on the exten
sive programme, as all the special com
mittees have been working with enthusi
asm In their various departments. Tills
evening a final meeting of all the sub
committees will be held In room COO
Chamber of Commerce, and each will
make Its report In full, showing what
progress has been made, and they will
then get their final orders from Grand
Marshall Summers. Each committee will
be hold strictly accountable for the ful
fillment of every detail, as General Sum
mers has applied strict military discipline
to his methods In this connection.
Members of the Second Oregon and all
Spanish War veterans are requested to
meet at tho final round-up of the forces
this evening, so as to perfect arrange
ments for taking part In the big parade
on tho night of the Fourth.
Line of March.
The line of march will bo south on
First street to Madison, west on Madison
to Third, north on Third to Burnslde,
west on Burnslde to Sixth, south on Sixth
past revlewing-stand at Hotel Portland
to Salmon, west on Salmon to East Park
street, south on East Park to Market,
west on Market to West Park, north on
West Park passing the G. A. R., Indian j
War veterans and old soldiers' review
stand to Salmon street, which will j
terminate the parade. j
The commanding officers of the several
divisions will move from the parade with
out conflicting with other subdivisions to
their respective quarters.
It Is the earnest desire of the marshal
that the greatest caro and caution be
taken by all participating in the parade
and see that harmony and precision shall
be carried out for the proper decorum
of .Jhe parade.
Residents along the line of march are
particularly urged to bestir themselves
In decorating for the event, as a concert
ed effort In this respect will Indicate a
desire to mako the anniversary a suc
cess. From the amount of bunting be
ing laid In by residents In the down
town quarters, it Is apparent that thero
will be no stint In the display of the Na
tional colors anywhere.
The hotels are all preparing to enter
tain an unusual number of guests from
the country and so there Is no danger of
overcrowding, even though the number of
strangers should exceed that of any form
er event. Tho railroads and steamboat
lines have all manifested their good will
by reducing their regular rates to one
fare for round-trip tickets, and this will
be one of the Important Inducements for
visiting the city at this time.
Concert at Cordray's. i
Cerdray's Theater has been selected for I
the grand concert to take place on the
afternoon of the Fourth. The prepara
tions for this feature have been going on
for some time, and tho experienced
hands engaged In training the school chil
dren for their portion of the concert re
port gratifying success, while the young
folks themselves are delighted with their
Work on tho various floats is being
prosecuted with vigor, and there will be
many pleasant surprises in the line of
parade. The Chinese feature alone Is
something entirely new in America. The
big dragon, nearly a block In length, will
seem to crawl through the streets as if
alive. Though it may not be a thing
of beauty, it will be something to re
member for the remainder of one's life.
Thursday will be occupied In rounding
up the various sports and games, award
ing prizes, etc.. and in tho evening a
grand open-air concert will be ftlven In
the park lots. Altogether the three
days' fete promises to oe a fitting tribute
to the Goddess of Liberty at the close of I
the eventful 19th century.

Verdict of Coroner Jnry In Cae
of John Coiitcllo.
A coroner's Inquest was held yesterday
afternoon over the body of John Costello,
which was found Saturday in the river.
His frlend3 had suspicions that he had
met with death through foul play, but
the testimony introduced yesterday
seemed to disprove any such conclusion,
and the Jury brought in a verdict of ac
cidental drowning. How the man met his
death, however, can never be certainly
Robert Dalby, an employe on the steam
er Qeorge W. Shaver, was the principal
witness. Ho testified to the fact that the
man had dangerous enemies. He said:
"T knew John Hostello. He was a man.
J years of age, of Mexican extraction.
and his home was In Albany, Or. He was
employed as a deckhand on the George
W. Shaver. I last saw him a week ago
last Saturday night on the Shaver. He
had told me at one time that he had
trouble with some parties and that ho
was afraid of being done up. Two weeks
ago he was beaten by three men in the
! north end of town, and horribly bruised
up. He told me about It the next morn
ing. He was greatly bruised, and both
eyes were nearly closed up. He made
no explanation of the trouble. I tried to
find him last week, but failed, and last
evening identified him at the morgue."
Ben Turley, Jr., another friend, testified
to Identifying the body, which was with
out mutilations of any sort. He said:
"He was a very peaceable man, but I
understood he had enemies, and I could
not find out 'why, as he was always quiet
and Inoffensive. I heard casually about
his fight with the three men In the North
End, but did not know the reason. I t
never saw him Intoxicated, and the last
time I saw him a week ago today, leav- I
lng the Shaver, he was perfectly sober." '
Dr. E. H. Thornton gave the medical
testimony, stating that ho found no evi
dences of foul play. His testimony fol- ,
lows: "I found In making a careful ex
amination of the body that there Is a
slight indentation or bruise on top of
the head, over the right parietal bone.
The skin is not broken, and there is no
evidence that the skull has been frac
tured. The left eye Is protruding out of
its socket, caused by the length of time
under water. There are no other marks
or scars on the body, and it Is my opinion
that, the deceased came to his death from
drowning, there being no visible evidence
on the body to indicate foul play. Tho
bruise on thp head was not sufficient to
Tho verdict of the Coroner's Jury was
to the effect that the reports of foul play
were unfounded, not being borne out by
