Foreign 'Office Version of the
ORD SALISBURY'S SMOOTH GAME
Compelled the Koreisn Office to Ac-
oziesce In the Iandincr of
XOKDON, Aug. 18. England is thor
oughly Irritated over the government's
seemingly changeable course respecting
the landing o troops at Shanghai. Even
the semblance of yielding to pressure
by the posters or the Chinese Viceroys is
regarded as impairing British prestige in
the East and In Europe. The papers, from
the Times down, are lecturing the gov
ernment on its supposed vaccilation and
falnt-heartedness. British troops, after
ell, occupy the nerve center of the rich
est region in China, which sustains 150,
COQ.OOO of people, and "were landed -with
the consent and approval of the powers.
The Poreign Office adjutants are bewil
dered at the ado raised throughout the
country by what they consider an amus
ing little game of tord Salisbury, ending
to England's advantage. It is explained
thus to the Associated Press:
"FUrst, the formal announcement that
troops would 3e landed; then, a five days
wait. In which the foreign Consuls at
Shanghai wagged their beads and wired
to their liome governments; rautterings
of disapproval on the Continent and the
stirring up of Chinese opposition at
Shanghai; troops arrive at Shanghai and
the Viceroy fjesists their landing, saying
that France -and Russia object; the Con
suls meet and several of them assert 'if
Xhe British land we will land troops also';
Admiral Seymour, after wiring liondon,
announces that England withdraws, and
the troops do not land?; a galling hour
is appointed; the next day every variety
of foreign commercial Interest In Shang
hai cries out in dismay, the Qkjnsuls re
vise their views and join in requesting
their governments to Induce the British
to land for the security of Shanghai; the
British sail away; intimations are re
ceived at the Foreign Office from France,
Germany and Austria that they are Quite
"willing that the troops should land; the
troops are pursued and brought back and
The Foreign Office expresses the opinion
that the "business was. admirably worited.
The tide of American travel is
still strong towards Xondon. Many
residents of tho other side of
the Atlantic, having visited tho Paris
exposition, are recuperating in England,
and tho i-otels frequented by Americans
.are filled this week, as they have not
been since the opening of the season.
Coaching is the delight of most of the
Americans. Since Albert Li. Johnson, of
Brooklyn, N. Y., drove his slx-borso
coach through London, there have been
.many candidates lor similar honors.
Among the energetic younger coach
men is Charles De Young, a son of
Michael De Young, proprietor of the San
Francisco Chronicle. Incidentally, San
Francisco is abundantly represented in
Xondon. Aside from Mr. De Young's party
at a "West-End table the other evening
were Mayor Phelan, "Walter Martin and
Peter Donohue, of, the papal household,
H S. Butler, proprietor of the Buffalo
News, another enthusiastic driver, has
bought a coach as a birthday present for
Ills .son. .
There have been enough American elec
tric railroad promoters at the Carlton this
weok to carry through any schome for
rapid transit in London which can be de
vised. T. It. Johnson, of Brooklyn, came
-from Paris Thursday, and under the same
roof were "W. "L. Elklns and P. A B.
"Wldcner, of Philadelphia (who have since
gone to the Continent), and Edwin John
Bon, representing the Edison Company.
These gentlemen have been studying the
.Central Underground Railroad. Mr. El
klns Informed a representative of the As
sociated Prows that he and his associates
really had no definite plans for work
in London, in spite of the fact that they
hae been In consultation with, eevcral
of tho city railroad owners.
The outgoing trans-Atlantic steam
ers today are crowded. Senator
Chauncey M, Depew sails on the
American lino steamer New York. He
spent the last days of his stay here in
examining tho new electric underground
railroad. He has also been Jn consulta
tion with British financiers who are spe
cially interested in tho ability of the
United States to make loans to Europe.
The .Senator said: "The sudden develop
ment of our Industries and tho immense
accumulation of money growing out of
tho fact that Europe is paying ?G0O,O0O,0OQ
annually .for American products has not
only brought the bank rate and call loans
up 1 and 2 per cent respectively, but the
"Western banks are now buying paper in
tho East, because there is no demand
for money. Tho fact that half tho Brit
ish war loan (all, if It had been permit
ted) was taken in the United States,
-demonstrates these conditions, which have
already made Sew York one of tho finan
cial centers of the world. If the con
ditions continue, and. I have no, doubt
they will. New York will soon bo a dan
gerous rival of London in financing the
government enterprises of the world.
"The rapid information we are acquir
ing regarding the industrial conditions
of tho world, the necessity of lindlng a
market for our Increasing surplus prod
ucts, and also our active participation in
the solution of the Chinese problem, tend
to make Sew York an active competitor
la the schemes for tho development of
the far East. It is a near, possibility that
the New York Stock Exchange will ac
tively deal In many foreign stocks and
"The United States, with SODO mlle3 of
ocean from European governmental com
plications, will never take.a militant part
in the rivalry and jealousies and wars of
Burope. These very miseries, the wars,
make the United States -every year
stronger as a financial factor, and will,
1 beMeve. make New York the financial
center of the world.
"Up to two ears ago the European
Cabinets took no intorest in American
diplomacy and finance. America was re
garded as a granary in times of poor
haryast on this side, and as a dumping
cround for surplus population. Now, no
Cabinet Jn Europe makes a mo e without
consulting the position of the United
States in. the matter."

It is a great injustice to Lord Russell.

this district, today received a letter from
Mrs. James B. NeaL wife of Dr. Neal,
now with the United States Consul, John

FIRST PURPOSE ACHIEVED
RESCUE OF JIIinSTERS BUT THE
American Property and Interests
Must Be Protected and Order Re
stored Throughout the Empire.
WASHINGTON, .Aug. 18. With tho al
lied armies at Pekln and" the Le
gations rescued, it caff be 'stated,
that the Administration considers
one of its essential purposes to have
been accomplished, and it now re
mains only to carry out, with unswerving
fidelity, the purposes already clearly de
fined by this Government. Although
these purposes were made known some
weeks ago in Secretary Hay's hote of
July 3, they now assume special' Impor
tance In the light of the work to be
taken up. Four distinct .purposes were
laid down in this declaration, .vis.:
"The purpose of the President is, as it
has been heretofore, to act concurrently
with the other powers.
"First In opening up communication
' A rtORROR-STRlCKEN
with Pekln and rescuing the American of
ficials, missionaries and other Americana
who are In daneer.
"Second In affording all possible pro
tection everywhere In China to American
"Third In guarding and protecting all
legitimate American Interests, and
"Fourth In aiding to prevent a spread
of the disorders to other provinces of tha
empire and a recurrence of such disas
ters." It can be stated authoritatively, that the
foregoing statements stand today as on
the day they were enumerated. The
Government considers that the first pur
pose enumerated Is now achieved. There
may be details of this rescue still to be
carried out, but no doubt is entertained
that the rescue will be accomplished.
That leaves the three remaining, purposes
set forth still to be carried out, and these
are chiefly in the line of restoring order,
quiet and security to the disturbed coun
try. The Intention of this Government as to
the withdrawal of troops from China can
not be stated at this time, and any state
ment bearing on this point Is conjectural.
The fact Is that the military situation at
Pekln is yet to be clearly developed by
the advices from those on the ground.
What course is to be adopted concerning
the troops will depend largely upon these
advices and upon the exigencies of the
It Is stated that there can be no Imme
diate withdrawal of the troops, and thoso
now on the way probably will relieve the
troops that have been operating In China,
at least to the extent of glying; them op
portunity to rest and recuperate. The
fresh forces will guard the line of com
munlcatlon between Pekln and tho tea
coast. Until Information Is received from Min
ister Conger and General Chaffee no defi
nite steps can be taken In the negotia
tions for carrying out the purposes of this
Government in China. It will depend
upon advices from theso officials as to
where and when negotiations will tako
place. . '

"WASHINGTON, Aug. 18. As the result
of an exchange of cablegrams between tho
powers concerning affairs at Shanghai, an
agreement has been reached by which all
the Admirals of the several powers rep
resented at Shanghai will act concurrent

Yangtse fleet, Instead of having this duty
performed entirely by the British Admiral
at Shanghai. This Chinese Yangtse fleet
consists of four cruisers and several torpedo-boats
and destroyers. As many

necessary to aee that, the Chinese war

A VERDICT OF GUILTY
(Omtlcucd from Flisrt Pase.)
'Gentlemen, I am a Republican, and I
have said that I did not believe that
Goebel's murder was the result of a con
spiracy. I did not think Caleb Powers
could be guilty, but I have heard the
evidence and I am convinced that he Is."
Others also made talks, and it Is said
that one of the jurors thought that tno
death penalty ought to be inflicted. How
ever, when a ballot was taken, all 12 of
them voted, for life Imprisonment. Tho
Jury was composed of eight Democrats,
three antl-Goebel Democrats and one Re
publican. One of the Jurors said tonight that the
Jurymen were influenced in making up
their verdict by many things in the evi
dence, but that some of the chief point
were Powers' own admission on the stand
that he organized a crowd of 1200 armed
mountaineers, which came to Frankfort
January 15; his corroboration of parts of
the testimony of Noakes, Golden and Cul
ton; the proof that he gave Youtsey
the key and that the shot was fired from

will bo tried, though It will be called
Monday. Mr. Crawford, of the defense,

that Youtsey, according to the advice of
his physician, is still threatened with ty
phoid fever. One of his atorney3, John
M. Stevenson, Is also 111 of typnold fever,
and Mr. Crawford said he 'could not say
this afternoon whether the defense would
be ready Monday or not. In the event
that the Youtsey case Is continued, one
of the other cases, either that of Davis,
Whltaker or Combs, will be taken up.
