."Tfio unlnfdtmed Chinese,"
Miss Cushuiatj, "believe that
foreign missionaries cut out the eyes
and hearts of the natives to use for
medicine. They! are quick to accept
any story which thoy hear, so that the
foreigners there Can never tell when a
mob will comoupod them." Miss
Cushman thus described Ku Cheng:
"Ku Chengia quite a distance from
Foo Chow up tbe Mln river. It Ib a

"Miss Hartford w&a sent to Ku

She was at that (me aj very popular

brother or sister living; and is entirely
devoted to her' work. Although the
five-year term for which she went has
expired, sbe has steadily refused to ac

visiting America, saying she preferred
to stay in China with tbo work, and
Anally die there. But 111 health and
need of rest almost influenced her to
take the needed vacation wbeu the
trouble came on. Mrs. Alderman, of
Hyde Park, corresponding secretary of
tbe New England branch of tbe so

to take this opportunity while the

Miss Althea M. Todd, of this city, Is
now under appointment to join Mlos
Hartford at Ku Cheng and was ex
pected to leave in about a month.
That the trouble has been long brew

Mrs. Alderman from Miss Hartford.
It Is dated Foo Chow, May 20 and
"I was obliged to close the women's
and girls' schools on April 0, on ac
count of fears of local insurrections.
The English iuIhhIou closed its school
two wtwks earlier, but I had hoped
that matters might clear up and so
kept on. At last I found that I could
not stnd out any longer alone. Every
one thought the schools ought to close
bo I closed them. Then I was sick, so
when Dr. Gregory asked me to come
to Cboo Foo aud have a rest I came."
Miss Cushman thinks the criticisms
made of United States Minister Don by
are unjust, for during ber residence in
Fekin be bad been very careful to pro

friendly terms with them all and.tbey
esteemed him very highly.

A Compromise Decision Rendered by
Omaha, Aug. 12. Tbo district court
Saturday afternoon rendered a decision
in tbe Omaha police commission con
test. The court holds that tbe old
board 19 legally m possession and en
titled to maintain its posiilou until
further legal proceedings may show it
Is uot properly in power. Tbo court,
bowevc, refuses to mako permanent
the injunction restraining the A. P. A.
commission from performing its func
tion. The decision is a compromise.
The Important part of tho decision U
"lu the light of this decision tbo de
fendants appointed as Are and police
commissioners uuder the law of 1895,
now in force, must be held to have tho
apparent right aud to be entitled
prima facie to the office in question.
Such being the case, a court of equity
will not restrain them from claiming
auMi offices or from prrceediug in a
lawful manner to obtain peaceable
"It has been suggested that if tho
lijuuction prayed lor Is uot granted,
there is danger of u conflict botweou the
eon tending putties, to tho detriment of
good order. There is no allegation that
tho defendants will uso force and vio
lence or other than lawful means to
gain possession, and tho court will not
assume that it will bo dono. On the
contrary, I have too much confidence
in tbe people of Omaha to believe that
such a conteBt will occur. Should any
thing of tho kind occur, the responsi
bility will be with thoso who precipi
tate it or excite it. I take occasion to
say hero that, notwithstanding the
views herein expressed as to the rights
of tho defendants to tbe possession of
tho offices in question, tho plaintiffs
huvo tho right to remain peaceably in
possession aud to exerclso tho func
tions of said offices uutli otherwise
ordered in a proper legal proceeding."
The excitement was eutenso when
court convened. The room was crowd
en to suftocatlon. Evory available seat
wua taken and tho nlsles wero jammed
with people. Many prominent politi
cians aud office-holders wero on hand.
The judge reviewed tho events lead
ing up to the present difficulty. He
spoke of the exhaustive citation of
authorities which had been presented
for consideration, and atated that ho
had given the questions, legal and
otherwise, which wero la dispute, his
careful attention. Tbo title to office,
be eald, cannot be decided In this suit.
Tbe question is, will tbo court by in
junction protect the other board, thus
obliging tbo' defendants to bring quo
The regular police commission will
remain In power until the supreme
oourt decides tho matter.
Many members of tbo A. P. A. havo
assorted that tboy will now tako pos
session through force, though no do-
maud has yet been made by the A. P.
A. commission for the city property on
tbo old commission, Many A, P. A.
leaders argue that since Judge Hope
well dissolved the injunction, there
was no need to wait for a writ of ouster
and now tboy talk of force. However,
there is no evldenco of trouble.
