The Government Has Now Mere
l!:pe of final Success
IN SAVING MINISTERS IN CHINA
No Extra Session of Congress Will Be
Called at Present-Korcea to
Be Sent to Aeia.
WASHINGTON, July l'.-PccIdedly
a more hopeful feeling with regard ta
the Chinese situation was apparent In
all Administration circles this evening).
The tide of sentiment, which lias lieen
markedly Desslmlstle. turned With t"h
announcement of the victory of the al
lies at Tien Tsin. and the capture of
. the forts and the native eily, ami
7 gathered further strength from Minis
ters AVu's cablegram declaring that
. the foreign ministers at Pekln were
' safe on Jnly Oth. Aside from' these
disiMitehes the arrival of the President
aud a sieelal cabinet mating called to
. consider the situation, were the fea
tures of the day. Over lOO newspaper
men thronged the corridors, while the
cabinet was sitting behind closed doors
At the conclusion of the cabinet
meeting, -which lasted two aud a half
. hours, Secretary Root gave out the fol
lowing formal statement of the action
of the cabinet:
The President has determined that
.the facts known to us do not require
or justify the Vailing of an extra ses
sion of Congress. Should future Ie
velopments indicate that he is unable
to lo what is required, with the means
now at his couimand, and the action
of Congress Js necessary to furnish
either men or money, or authority, he
will not hesitate to call it together.
The decision that an extra session of
Congress was not demanded by the
existing conditions was the outcome
of a showing which loth Secntary
Root and Secretary Long were to
make, as to the force that can be
thrown iuto China without authoriza
tion of additional troops by Congress,
' and also tne decidedly more hopeful
feeliug eutertained by the President
" and memlers of the cabinet, as to the
safetj- of Minister Conger and otlier
foreigners in IVkin. due" to' the cable
' of Minister Wu,' reporting the safety
of the ministers on July Mil, two days
after their reiorted massacre. While.
'" this' cable Is ' not regarded 'us'mndui-
- 'lve,lt is accepted in good faith for the
' preseut. 'Hut the Administration, it
can le detinltely stateil, has set In mo
1 tion some machinery by which, it is
I' confidently predicted, absolutely .'au
thentic new ax to the. fate of our
minister and other foreigners at IV
..' kin, will be ascertained." ' Through
what chahuel the. Administration el
ects to ixH-elve this all important news
, Is not known, but the Una I settlement
of the situation in jFekin is daily and
hourly expected, can le stated with
utmost positlveness. Advhe. receiv
ed from Pekln. probably will le the
. determining factor in shaping the fu
ture course id this Government. If
Minister Conger has been murdered,
h-'au extra sennion of Congress seems lu
. ' evltable. Secretary Itoot furnished to
. the Cabinet a summary of the troops
available, not only in this country,
but in China and the Philippines. ' It
- 1 his opinion that letween lo.ooo and
lit.Ooo troop fa all could te xja?tl for
service In China. -These relnforce
tnents are to le rushed through at the
" earliest possible moment. Most, If not
. all of them. It I believed, can Ie laud
ed by the eud of August or early in
' Keptemlier. j

though It will not affect the officers.

FUGGLES HOPS.-Jillert & Pat
terson have a portion of their hop yard
near Lincoln, set to the Fuggles vari
ety of hops, and these will noon tie ripe
as can. be seen by a sample from that
yard, hanging in the Statesman show
window. This variety, of hops com
manded the highest price last year,
Messrs. Gilbert & Fatterson selling
their Fugglcs hops at 12 cents per
pound. They, however, are not as
profitable as other varieties, for the
reason that they produce only from t0
to lifl pounds per acre, while others
will produce from 100O to 1S00 pounds.
