The belief is not credited here that

State will cheerfully undertake tlie

One fact, regarded as now tteyond

has received a dispatch from the Brit-

just received a letter from Sir Claude
MacDonald, the British Minister at
I'ekin. and ilated July 4tli, appealing
for relief. Tliere were euomrh pmvis

the letter said, but the garrison was
unequal to the task of holding out
against a determined attack for many

PREPARING FOR WAR.
Washington. July 24.The Navy De
partment ; Is preparing for iKwsilde
eventualities arising out of the situa
tion In China. One of the greatest
difficulties which would confront the
United States In the event of naval
warfare In Chinese waters, is the lack
of the naval base close to the scene
of operations. - As a precautlonai-y
measure the colliers, purchased dur
ing the Spanish war and which' had
gone rout of commission, arc lKhig
titteil out for service. . Foreign coun
tries have gobbled up everything afloat
which could lie utilized for shipping
coal and stores. Germany and Japan
have even impressed ; steamers. The
result Is that at the present time T0
ler cent, of our government freight
for the Orient is now Iwiug carried in
foreign loats. Conseriuently, price

There is nothing more desirable than
that; the claims made for "Golden
Medical Discovery" should be proven
true by an investigation of j its cures.
It is a striking fact that the very suc
cess of this medicine tends to arouse
a prejudice In the mfnds of Rome ieo-
ple who have "doctored for years

They ask. "Why should this .Discov

Consequently It Is -difficult to di-ter-mlne
the true huihIht of British in
China. Moreover, by .'.British' law,
every British subject Is couqiclled t'
