New York, Oct. 2« —A dispatch to
th» lieraid from Pekin tava:
A preliminary conn-litum between
' hiua ami th* oombim-il power» ha.
I—n proposed by Prince Ching aud Li
Hung ('hang. J: is a. follow«:
• “Article I. Laying siege to tbo lega­
tions of foreign ministers is a high of-
•ns* against on* of the important prin­
ciple* of international law. No coun­
try can possibly tolerate such a thing.
China acknowledges her great fault in
thl. respect ami promise* that it will
uev er occur again.
“Article IL China admit« h«r lia­
bility to pay an indemnity for the var­
ious loe*e* sustained on thia occasion,
and the powers will each np|»>iut offi­
cials to examine and present all claims
lot a final consultation aud settiemeut.
“Article 111. As to future trade
and general international relations,
each [Mj.or should designate bow these
matters are to be dealt with, whether
tbe old treaties should continue or new
conventions should l»e made, slightly
adding to th* old treaties* or canceling
the old treaties aud ueogtiatlug new
ouee. Any of these plana may be
adopted aud when China has appioved
them, further special regulations can
bo made in each case as required.
“Article IV. Thia convention will
be made by China with the combined
powers to cover the geueral principle,
which apply alike to all. This set­
tled, the foreign inini.teis will remove
the seals they caused to be placed in
various parts of the Taung li Yamun,
and the Yamun ministers may go to
the Yainun and attend to bnsineaa a.
usual. And further, each power should
arrange its own special i flairs with
China, so that sefiarate treaties may la-
settled in due older. When the vari
oua Items of indemnity are all arranged
properly, or an umler.t.aiding bas been
reached about them, the powers will
successively withdraw their troops.
“Article V. The troops sent to
China by the powers are for the protec­
tion of the ministers, aud no other pur-
p*e, so when tbe negotiations begin
for treaties ol peace each power should
first declare an armt.tice.”

The announcement of the defalcation,
which wa. made this aftermsm. cre­

"The note teller, who had lieen in

Tl>e discovery was made by one of tbe

Want Large Appropriation* for Govern«
meat Irrigation Surve«y«.
Denver, Oct. 25.—Colorado busi­
ness men recognizee the lienefit that
attaches to their state through the
work of the government along the lines
of irrigation investigation and surveys
for reservoir sites. The Denver cham­
ber of commerce and board of trade
last month adopted rigorous resolutions
calling attention to the great develop­
ment possible in Colorado, through ir­
rigation. and to the generally accepted
opiniou that onlv by the storage of
flood waters can the future problem
affectiug successful farming in tbe arid
region be solved, and pledging support
to the United States geological survey
in securing large congressional appro­
priations for carrying on their work for
surveys of reservoir sites, aud other
preliminary irrigation work.
Waste nt the Forest«.
Many sections of the West are be­
ginning to reap the bitter fruits of
forest destruction. A few years ago
the snow would drift, and pile up iu
the mountain gulches, thickly studded
with pine and other trees, forming an
almost impenetrable (forest protection,
and these gradually melt away, supply­
ing water for the streams until late in
the season. This, now? bas too often
changed. The timber has gradually,
but surely, been cut and burnt away,
until now some of the tiuest forests of
the mountains have dsappeared. and
where the snow banks would remaiu
until late in the season, they now dis­
appear months earlier, and iustead of
melting gradually, the tlood-waters
come with a rush, and then cease when
most needed. There is scarcely any­
thing more important than forest pro­
tection aud preservation, which mean,
a guarding of the water supply; and
every state an I every section should
rouse to active local organisation aud
national co-oi>eration.
The 1‘hiladelhpia Public Lodger, an
old and conservative Eastern journal,
speaking of the arid public lands, ar­
gues forcibly, that in order that they
may lie redeemed the nation should
assume tbe task of irrigation.
