CHINESE BOYCOTT EXPLAINED.
Agents of Mikado Said To Be the
Vancouver, B. C, Aug. 14. There
is a growing belief that the boycott
of American goods In China originated
with the Japanese, and that their ob
ject was to secure the rich trade of the
empire for themselves. Hitherto the
Chinese provinces have acted independ
ently of one another, but the concerted
action in the north and south shows
that a master hand has brought about
the change. Ever since the war with
Russia began Japanese agents have
worked strenuously in China to make
their influence permanent. The boy
cott seems to show how well they have
succeeded. The Oiiental press has
much to say of the boycott. The
China Mail says:
"Some of the soberer classes aie ap
prehensive lest the passions of the peo
ple should be roused by such methods,
whereupon they may not hesitate to be
come iconoclastic and attack anything
foreign, under the misapprehension
that all things foreign are American."
The Fekin and Tientsin Times says:
"Those who know the Chinese best
cannot but marvel at this sudden out
burst of a patriotism which had hither
to been absolutely non-existent, and
there are those who, reading between
the lines, believe they see the shade of
another nationality behind the Chinese
The Hongkong Tress says:
"The way to suppress an anti-American
agitation in Canton is to start
another anti-anything, so long as it be
foreign. The Chinese merchants
dropped the manifesto like a hot cinder
the moment it was presented to them."
STEPPED INTO CREVASSE.
Woman Entombed for Two Hours in
Kalispel, Mont, Aug 14. Mrs. A.
M. Burt, of Jamestcwn, N. D., a mem
ber of a party from the Big Fork,
Mont., biological school, had a narrow
escape from death while ascending
Sperry glacier, above Lake McDonald,
in the Clearwater country. Mrs. Burt
had just ceased commenting ou the
danger of stepping into a blind crevasse
in the state of unpreparedness in which
the party was, when she disappeared
from sight. The crevasse had been un
dermined by the intense heat of the
previous month, and had given away
beneath the feet of the unfortunate
woman, who gave a despairing cry as
she disappeared. The men of the party
cautiously approached the crevasse,
which was uncovered about five feet
wide, and nearly a straight fall of
more than 50 feet, but no sight of Mrs.
Burt was to be had. Listening closely
a call for help was heard.
A courier was sent three miles for
ropes, by means ot which, with snon
leather belts, suspenders and silk
scarf 8, the woman was finally rescued,
after an effort of more than two 'hours.
The shock was so great that nervous
prostration is feared.
Mrs. Burt says she was bounced Irora
side to side of the crevasse in her de
scent, but miraculously lodged in a
pocket in the side of the wall, other
wise she would have been precipitated
to unknown depths and perished.

REFUSE THE TERMS
Russian Envoys Will Not Consider
Payment ot Indemnity.
NOR WILL THEY YIELD SAKAHALIN
Peace Prospect Is Black Witte De
livera Reply to Japanete
Both Sides Firm.
Portsmouth, N. II., Aug. 12. Rus
sia's reply to the Japanese terms of
peace were delivered bv M. Witte to
Baron Komura at i :30 o'clock Unlay.
The reply is written, there being two
texts, one in French, the other in Eng
lish. Upon the two crucial points, in
demnity and the cession of the island
of Sakhalin, the reply is an absolute
nonpossumus. Other points are at
cepted as a basis for discussion, while
others are accepted conditionally.
The reply is rather long, because, in
enumerating the conditions on which
discussion is admitted and those on
which consideration is declined, rea
sons and arguments are given. The
Japanese plenipotentiaries asked for an
immediate adjournment to examine
and prepare their reply. M. Witte
intimated that the Russian plenipoten
tiaries exKet the Japanese to display
as much expedition as they, "the Rus
sians, have shown in the preparation
of their response." Monday, there
fore is expected to be the day on which
the real discussion of the negotiations
will begin. Neither side wants to in
dulge in diplomatic sparring. The
time for fencing is over and less than
a week must decide whether a basis of
peace is possible.
The tactics of the Japanese are in
scrutable. They have shown through
out the war their ability to guard their
secrets, military, naval and diplomatic,
and now not the remotest clue comes
from behind their closed doors as to
whether they are prepared to make
substantial concessions. Silence and
secrecy are their watchwords. But,
should the conditions as submitted con
stitute their last word, hope of peace
may he regarded as having disapjeared,
if the feeling reflected in Russian cir
cles is a true criterion. And that no
substantial concessions on the main
issues will be made is the belief both in
Russian and Japanese circles. M.
Witte, it is positively known, believes
the prospects of an agreeent are so re
mote as to be practically nil. He has
no desire to prolong the agony, and in
stead of fencing when the envoys come
together after the Japanese have bad
the opportunity to examine the reply,
there is strong reason to believe he will
not only welcome but will insist upon
an immediate discussion of all the
proposed bases. So pessimistic is he
that he has already been talking to
his colleagues of his plans when the
rupture comes. Before sailing for home
he contemplates a visit to Chicago.
Texas Guards Against Infection.
Austin, Tex., Aug. 12. State Health
Officer Tabor has submitted a report
to Governor Lanham concerning the
yellow fever situation in the South,
in which he says :
"Yellow fever exists now in Louisi
ana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and
the Republic of Mexico. Texas is
sandwiched between the infected dis
tricts, with very little hope of escap
ing invasion by the scourge with the
long summer before us. We are guard
ed as closely as possible, but it is
very hard to maintain a succesfsul
quarantine. I would most certainly
insist that there be no mobilization of
citizens or soldiers at this time, as any
excitement might cause a general stam
pede and a general quarantine that
could tie up the entire railroad service
of the state."
The officer has also called upon the
governor to hold the entire state ranger
force in reserve subject to his orders,
as he may need them at any time to
control the quarantine situation.
Control Another Road.
Chicago, Aug. 12. By the recent
purchases of large blocks of Wisconsin
Central stock, it is now said the owners
of the Great Northern and Northern
Pacific roads now own a majority of
the securities and important changes in
the management and operation will
result. The reason for the purchase is
said to lie in the fact that s:nce the
Great Northern and the Northern Pa
cific purchased the Burlington, the
volume of through traffic has increased
to such an extent that it cannot be
handled without other outlets.
Gentile Bakers May Strike.
New York, Aug. 12. According to
Samuel Kurz, leader of the striking
Kosher bread bakers, a telegram was
sent today to the secretary of the Inter
national Bakers & Confectioners' union
at Chicago by a committee representing
the Gentile bakers of New York, ask
ing for advice as to a sympathetic
strike here. Fourteen unions, number
ing 7,000 bakers, were represented.
The telegram declared that the bakers
were overworked and underpaid.

Washington, Aug. 12. There were

The party readied a latitude of 82
degrees 82 minutes north latitude.
William Ziegler, the late baking
powder millionaire, sent out Anthony
Fiala in 1903 to discover the north
pole. The party sailed in the steam
ship America. They penetrated to the
latitude given when their ship Itecame
locked in as the ice grew solid in the
Arctic winter. There was nothing to
do but to battle with the ice, cutting
away that nearest the loat that the
upheaval of the great blocks of ice
might not crush the vessel. These
efforts, however, were vain, and early
in the winter the America was ground
to pieces in the polar puck.
