held was packed. IL was an orderly

spoke In this section of the northwest

voted most of his time to a discussion
of Imperialism and trusts, on which Mr.
Bryan dwelt chletly.
"It amounts almost to fanaticism and
chicanery," said Senator Hanna, "for
a man who aspires to the high oflice
of president to raise it question so for
eign to the principles and future of
our government as to talk about Im
perialism as an Issue. It Is but another
bogey man to frighten the people. A
man who ascribes the purposes to our
standing army that have been ascribed
In this campaign, knows that ho lies
when he says it. By his acts and his
words, Mr. Bryan is laying tho founda

By ETclusiie Wire from The Associated Pros.
Paris, Nov. 2. A dispatch to Ilavas
agency from Pukln, duted October ::i,
Is as follows:
"The foreign ministers continued lo
day tho discussion of the peace propo
sitions to bo presented to thu Chinese.
The French propoMtls were accepted.
Additional specifications wilt be dis
cussed Monday. On account of the ne
cessity for thorough accord between
the different cabinets the final note will
not be presented for several weeks.
"General Voyron, commander In chief
of the French troops In China, with
the allies under his command, Is purg
ing tho villages around Tlen-Tsln and
Pekln. Many villages Infested with
Hoxers have been destroyed and their
inhabitants punished. A French col
umn sent to Tuen rescued tho mission
aries there. Another French column
met with resistance nt Slot-Chung. The
enemy's losses were considerable. The
village was burned."
Washington, Nov. 2. It was said to
day in quarters well versed in Chinese
affairs thut outside of the questions of
indemnity, punishments, etc., under ne
gotiation at Pekln, three vital ques
tions aro to bo determined, viz., tho
removul of the empress dowager, per
sonally und through tho Influence of
her advisors, from alt participation In
the Chinese government; the creation
of an indemnity fund by the Increase
of China's customs revenue, either by
tho payment of the duties in gold in
stead of depreciated silver as at the
present time, or else by doubling the
present silver duties from five per cent,
to ten per 'Cent, ud valorem, and the
establishment or a minister of foreign1
affairs, in place of the old and cumber
some system of the tsung-li-yamen.
The demand for tho retirement of
the empress dowager is tho outcome,
it Is said, of the conclusion generally
accepted ithat tho Imperial govern
or r'hlna wus responsible for the Box
er uprising. As tho empress dowager
was the tilling authority of the im
perial government during tho upris
ing, that responsibility. Is brought
home directly to her. It is understood,
however, that then is no purpose to
visit on her any perstmnul punMinient
or Indignity, but merely to exclude
her from all participation lit the gov
ernment. It is deemed tnlvNablu for
tint reason that she should remain
permanently away lrom Pekln and
that her advisers also should be kept
away from the sent or government.
The necessity of an Increase of
China') customs duties has heretofore
been brought lo tho attention of the
Vniied States government by Li Iluniy
Chain!. During his visit to Washing
ton a few years ago he pointed out
that the 5 per cenl. was llxed In 1851
by treaties with the United States.
'J rent Britain and other com. tries, iind
was payable In sliver, at which thus
silver was worth as much ns gold.
With the chiiuge. of value between
silver and gold, hoovr, the C per
cent, duty in silver uclually netted
only about 2 1-2 per cent., judged by
the prevailing gold sttuulnrel. Tho
mutter wus not pressed nt the time.
china's prisent customs revenues, It
la bald, are pledged to meet the inter
on and principal of Chlnso loans, so
that It will require some entirely new
source to meet the Indemnities.
Ir. r-iiso tho enlarged duties ore de
termined upon, it Is understood that
their colltctlon will ho placed under
the supervision nf representatives of
tho powers, at least until tho indem
nities have been paid,
Tho plan of substituting a nilutster
of foreign all'tiir.s in placn of the tsung-ll-yaiuen
