Chinese Reported Rallying
Their Forces at Pekin.
Busalan and Japanese Cavalry Were
Expected to. fc ncounter The a
Several Day a Abo.
Washington, August 28. A dispatch
received at the Japanese legation today
from the foreign office of Japan, con
veying the latest and most authentic
information of the situation in and
around Pekin. In a measure the ad
vices were of a disquieting nature as
they indicated that the Chinese had
rallied their forces and weie preparing
for an attack upon the allies in Pekin.
If it should prove that the allied forces
were besieged in Pekin it would ac
count for the lack of advices from Geu
eial Chaffee. As made public by Min
ister Takahira the dispatch from tht
Japanese foreign office at Tokio is as
"An official telegram, dated Pekiu,
August 18, was received at Toki) from
General Yamaguchi, commander of the
Japanese forces, to the following effect:
'The capital is now entirely oleared of
the enemy. A cavalry regiment which
had been sent to Wuu Shau Shan
(where the empress dowager's palace
is located), reports that the imperial
family, who had left Pekiu August 14,
started, after a short rest at Wan Shau
Shan for the west, and were under the
escort of General Maa and his troops,
oousisting of only about 500 horsemen
and 20 carts. The Japanese forces oc
cupied the treasury department, in
which over 2,000,000 taels in silver
and a larce Quantity of rice were
"Another telegraphic dispatch, dated
Taku, August 23, states that as the
Chinese troops and Boxers, who had
eathered at Nan Yuen, were about to
attack the foreign forces at Pekin, Ja
panese and Russian cavalry were ex
oeoted to encounter them on the 20th
The dispatch iuither states that Chi
nese iufantry. 9,000 strong, with 15
Buns, are advancing from Shan lung
to make a rear attack on the allies."
A copy of the dispatch was transmit
ted to Actintf Secretary Adee, at the
department of state and by hiin fur
nished to the presilent. While the
news of a possible rear attack upon the
comparatively small force of the allies
ytas not leceived with surpuse, gener
ally, it was not regarded as serious, as
t.hfi foreion forces are believed to be
abundantly able to take care of them
selves a trains t any force of lhlnese
likely to be sent againft them.
Three Men Found Polishing
Because of
Lack of Water.
El Paso, Texas, August 28. Three
men, who had almost perished from
thirst, have been found in the desert
near the Coleran churoh, 60 miles
north of El Paso. One of the men is
Professor R. II. Cook, who recently
came to this city from the East. The
men left Almo Gordo, N. M., on bicy
cles, Thursday, bound for El Paso.
They took the overland road through
the Tularosa valley. On that route
there is a desert of saud 70 miles wide.
When the men had gone about 80 miles
their bicvcles broke down and they had
to walk. One of the men leahed the
Clorean church, but had to be treated
for several hours before he could speak.
He then told of hh comrades. Two
men with jugs of water tied on thoir
saddles went back in search of the
missing men. One was found 15 miles
away exhausted and unconscious in
the sand and was brought to the ranch.
The other, Prolessor Cook, was found
20 miles further away in spasms and
would probably have died in an hour
had he not recoived water. AH the
men are now in a critical condition.
The names of the other two men were
not learned.
Morocco Asked to Pay.
Tangier, Morocco, August 28. A
United States warship has arrived here
to suppoit the claim arising out ol the
rajrder last June of Marcus Essagiu,
a naturalized American citizen, who
was the manager of a French firm.
Essagin, while riding on horseback,
jolted against the mule of a Morocco
priest. A dispute ensued, during
which Essgin, in self-defense, drew his
revolver and fired, wounding a native.
This was a signal for a general attack
upon the American, who received doz
ens of knife wounds and whose body
was burned, according to some ac
counts, before life was extinct.
Cut by a Negro.
St. Joseph, Mo., August 28. An
unknown negro boy probably fatally
slashed Angus Morrison, superintend
ent of bridges for the Chicago Gieat
Western railway, tonight, as he was
hurringy to catch a train. Morrison's
throat was cut, probably with a razor.
Morrison can give no reason for the
assault, unless it is because he acci
dentally brushed against the negro.

They Have Planned a Great

Portland Carnival Will Be a Big Sueceaa
by the Men Who Never Know Defeat
In Their Daily Business-Thejr Want
Their Customers to Join Them.
Portland, August 27. It is now a
conceded fact that Traveling Men's Day
at tbe Elks' carnival, to be held in
Portland, will be one of tbe greatest
attractions of the fair. September 8
has been set as Travelers' Day. and
avery traveling man in the Not th west
will be in line in one of the most
unique and instructive parades ever
witnessed on any street. Each travel
ing man will be decked out in a linen
duster, wearing a white crush hat with
i blue ribbon band and carrying an
umbrella. There will be at least 1,000
if them in line. There will also bo
jumerous fie its, each representing the
traveling men of tbe different cen
turies, from the 15th to the present
date, with elaborate costumes suited
for the occasion. They will also show
the different methods by which they
travel, including the pack mule, stage
coaches, buck boards, Ireight trains and
Pullman cars. The hotel accomoda
tions which they have to contend with
will not be left out of this parade. It
is the desire of the travelers and also
of the houses they represent, that all
of their customers and friends be pres
ent that day so they can see the travel
ing man in his every day trials, show
ing both the good and bad of their
trips. The boys are making special
preparations to treat their customers
and friends in a royal way. '
The Plan la to Tie Up Building Opera
tions In the City.
Chicago, August 27. Unless the
plans of the leaders miscarry every nn
ion man connected with the Building
Trades Council will be called out on a
strike before Labor Day.
The plum oers have already been or
dered put and the intention is that all
other unions whose men are working
shall follow suit. Owing to increased
activity in the building trades within
the last few days, many union men
have been put to work, in some places
with the consent of the business agents,
and it is the purpose of the unions to
9top the work wherever the bosses be
iieved they had won a victory and
show them that the labor organizations
are still in the fiebt. The business
agent of one of the largest unions said
"Contractors have come to believe
that it is comparatively easy sailing for
them now. and accordingly have been
undertaikng bo me large jobs with the
idea that there would be no further
trouble from the unions. They will
find to their disgust that many of the
men whom they supposed to be non
union men have become members of the
unions and they will sipmly be nnable
to do any work. It is the only thing
that is left the unions unless they pro
pose to give up their fight. The ides
of helping the contractors along theii
jobs has been a mistake which is gen
srally recognized now and they will
find there is a lot of fight left among
the men yet."

Roumania and Bulgaria has now lost
much of its acuteness, and that in the
end Bulgaria will satisfy the Rouman

First Prize Awarded Oregon
and Washington Grain.
The IHsnlay Waa Prepared by Colonel
Judson and Sent by the O, V.
ft N. Company.
Through the efforts of the O. R. &
N. Company a display of Washington
and Oregon grain was made at tlio
Paris exposition that took first prize, a
gold medal. The wheat of the Colum
bia river basin in Washington and Uio
gou is thus declared to be the best in
the world.
The exhibit was prepared under the
direction of Col. 11. C. Judson, indus
trial agent of the O. R. & N. The
principle portion of the exhibit came
from the company's experimental farm
at Walla Walla. But large quantities
of grains and grasses were obtained
from several other places in the two
The exhibit consisted of 58 different
varieties of wheat, and a few samples
of oats and barley. "I was confident
that they would prove world-beaters,"
remarked Mr. Judson. "I bad exor
cised great care in the selection of the
seed. The display was certainly a
magnificent one, and we are more than
nlensed to learn that our opinion 18
shared by those in authority at Paris.
The grain went from Portland hy ex

A large box of grain in quart sacks
was sent. The sacks were made ol nne
Iwhite cloth, tied with red, white and
Jblue ribbons and the following printed
inscription, in brilliant scarlet ink

Railroad & Navigation Company; head

each package was a neatly printed card
bearing the name of the grower, tne
variety ol the grain, the yield per acre
and his postoffice address. These sam
ples are iutonded for distribution in the
principal wheat centers of the united
Kingdom, and it is leit to we oepari,'
ment of agiioulture to see to the suo'
cessful carrying out cf this programme.
Mr. Judson says his idea in aocom
piinviuz these small packages by the
mentioned data was to satisfy tne sev
eral recipients, should they compare
notes, that the samples were from sev
eral fields and not from one particular
ly favored section. The effect of this
remarkable recognition of the resources
of the Northwest will be far-reaohing
The attention of the newspapers all
over the world will not only be arrest
ed, but a mighty factor in the direction
of immicration will assert itself. The
O. R. & N. Co. has covered itself with
glory, and at the same time rendered
the section in which it operates a
service of areat worth.
All this recalls the fact that Hood

Populist Natlonnl Committee Accepted
11 1 ill as Vlce-Presldeutlal Nominee.
Chicago, August 29. At a meeting
of the People's party national commit
tee today the declination of Charles A
Towne as the vice-presidential noini
nee for the party was aocepted, and the
name of Adlai E. Stevenson was p it
in his place. This result was obtained
after a long debate, beginning at 3 I
M. and ending about 6:30 P. M. in
the beginning there were three courses
advocated by different members of the
committee, viz.: to nominate a Popu
list, to leave the place vacant, or last
ly, to indorse Mr. Stevenson.
Senator Marion Butler, chairman of
the committee, in a warm speech of
some length, advocated leaving the
place blank, contending that Bryan
and Stevenson would receive more Pop'
ulist votes than if a candidate for vice
president was named. But one test
vote was taken. A motion was made
to indorse Mr. Stevenson. For this
motion, Mr. Washburn, of Massachu
setts, moved as a substitute that a Pop
ulist be piaoed upon the ticket. The
substitute was lost on a call of the roll
bv a vote of 24 ayes to 71 noes. The
original motion was then adopted by a
viva-voice vote. There were 124 mem
bers of tbe committee present or pre
presented by proxies.

with two brigades of cavalry, moved
northwest of Belfast, driving the enemy
to Lekenvly, on the Belfast Lydenburg
road. As soon as French reached Le
kenvly, Pole-Carew advanced from Bel
fast in support.
"The enemy in considerable strength
opposed Bailers' and Pole-Carew's ad

firing, until dark, was hot and persis

jahn," said Lieutenant Weaver, "and
I do not think there was a man that
had fewer than 10 bullet holes in his
body. In the case of one American
soldier it looked as if the muzzle ol the
revolver had been placed right in his
eye and fired. He waa also stabbed in
thi neck and breast with bayonets.
Here is another case of cruelty; Harry
Easter and McDonald, two of my com
pany, were killed instantly. Easter
was shot in the neck and tbe other fel
low was shot in the back of the head.
Only about 20 of the company were
with them and they were attacked by
about 250 Filipinos. The Americans
fought them an hour and 45 minutes.
They had to leave the dead and when
they came back the rebels had stripped
the boys of all their clothing. They
pulled up grass and sticks and built a
fire on their breasts. We got to the
boys before anything further was done
to them. We got Easter and the other
fellow away befoie they weie burned.
