which was drawn up before the com

London, May HI. The government
was questioned in the house of com
mons today on the subject of the Hrlt
Isli lug Ewo Incident at Tien-Tsln.wluin
two Chinese on board that vessel were
fatally shot by Cternians guarding a
bridge after the tug had fouled It.
The under foreign secretary, Lord
Cranborne, In reply said Field Marshal
Count von AValdersee had expressed his
regrets and had promised to take
measures to prevent the recurrence of
Lord Cranborne proceeded to make a
general statement on the China ques
tion, lie said that the government's
chief concern at the present time was,
so far as possible, to moderate tin; de
mands for indemnity and see that they
did not infringe on commercial inter
ests. The government, therefore, was
unalterably opposed to raising the im
port, duties to ten per cent, as security
for tlie payment of the indemnity, and.
in reply to all such suggestions, had
signified Its intention to consent only
to such an advance of duties in con
nection with commercial improvements
In the Chinese fiscal system as the abo
lition of the llkin taxes.
As to moderating the total indem
nity, there were more ways than one
of achieving that object, and China's
burden might be perceptibly lightened
by the method or exacting payment.
In regard to the proposal that the
Indemnity be del'riyed by a loan guar
anteed by a concert of the powers, un
doubtedly China's obligation to pay
the indemnltv was a joint obliga
tion, and, though he hoped it
would not he necessary, if such a hum
was guaranteed It would have to be
guaranteed by the joint force of all
the powers. The objection to a joint
guarantee, however, was so obvious
that the Prltlsh government would
hav nothing to do with it. Consider
ing that jtrltish credit stood higher
than that of any other power, -while
Ureat Britain only claimed a small
portion of the Indemnity, it would Ire
nothing short of Insanity to agree to
jointly guarantee the loan.
After mentioning that three Chinese
offenders in high places had been put
to death, that three had beep per
mitted to commit suicide, that, four
had been banished, nnd that the
powers had demanded the punishment
of 170 provincial culprits, 1-ord Cran
borne concluded with saying that on
tlie whole the affairs of China wore
vnterlng on a more pacific phase and
that the government hoped to soon
wlthdiaw a largo portion of the P.iit
Ish tioops from that country.
Lord Lansdowne, the foreign secre
tary, made a statement in tlie House,
of Lords similar to the statement
made by Lord Cranborne In tlie House
of Commons. He said tlie government,
desired to avoid an arrangement for
the payment of the indemnity by
which China would lw compellled to
contract separate obligations and
could not agree to a joint guarantee
of the loan. It, therefore, had sug
gested to the powers that China should
give tlie powers bonds representing
the amount due to each of thiim.
Those bonds might be extinguished In
a term of years by the payment of the
principal and interest. Certain sources
of revenue should he ear-marked and
the yield he paid to a. board which
should distribute It, If China then
made dofntllt it would be to the pow

HEARING ON THE
COMPANY STORE BILL
The Senate Committee Decides to
Report the Bill Favorably.
n.r Ktcliidvp Wire frnm The AMOclaled Prww.
llarrlshurg, May 21. The senate
committee on llnanee gave another
public hearing this afternoon on the
hote bill known as the company
store bill, which places a prohibitive
tax on all orders, cheeks or other pa
per representing wages of employes,
and the committee afterwards decided
to report the bill favorably to the
senate with a few (intendments. Tlie
amendments will not affect the origi
nal purpose of the bill. Unless its
passage is Impeded the measure will
come up for Html passage next week.
The public hearing on the bill lasted
nearly three hours. Attorneys repre
senting the miners nnd the company
stores were heard and tlio arguments
presented by both sides were mainly
of a legal nature.
Uupresentatlve Ferrebee, of Schuyl
kill, who introduced tlie bill, made a
statement at the hearing to the effect
that Governor Stone would probably
sign It. .Mr. Ferrebee stated that the
governor sonic time ago said, in his
presence, that If the miners wnnted
the bill to become a law he would
sign it, as he saw nothtaff wrong In

would still hold thnt position after the

dict a number of w'itiicNHV were
heard. An effort was madoTo show
that .Miss Mlnas could easily have
heaid voices through the door con
necting her room with that r Ayres
and that lights could have Mi-n seen
through the cracks. DeteetfWs' Horn
and Weedon testified to this effect,
but Miss Mlnas declared that she saw
no lights on the night of the shoot
ing. She also testified thai the cries
she heard coming' from Ayres' room
were made by a man's voice and not
by it woman's. She was positive that
the voice was not that of Mrs. Bon
ine. Tills contradicts airs. Bonine,
wlio, in her confession yesterday said
that she hud uttered the only vocal
sounds made in the room at the time
of tlie tragedy. Detective Horn's tes
timony concerning yesterday's confes
sion was not materially different from
the statement as then given out. Dis
trict Attorney Could says that Mrs.
Bonine lias decided not to appear be
fore the coroner's inquest.
The typewritten copy of her confes
sion was taken to Mrs. Bonine today
for the purpose of having- her swear
to it. as she was not under oath when
she made the statement yesterday.
Mrs. Bonine, after making the confes
sion, hud consulted a lawyer and he
had advised her to avoid anything in
the nature of assisting tlio prosecu
tion. When the confession was pre
sented to her today, she positively re.
fused to make the. desired uiudnvil.
After the coroner's jury had ren
dered the verdict, Mrs. Bonine was re
moved to the city jail.

Philadelphia. May 21. The commis
sioners to the Presbyterian general
assembly today gave vent lo a spon
taneous burst of patriotic enthusiasm,
which found voice In the hearty ren
dition of n. national anthem. Jt was a
fitting conclusion to a 'masterly ad
dress by Rev. Dr. Charles O. Thomp
son, secretary of Home Mission board.
Tlie report of the committee on home
missions hod been read and Dr.
Thompson arose to make the usual
appeal for si Id, which developed into
an oration, and aroused the assembly
to the highest pitch of enthusiasm.
A statement in the committee's re
port that over :i,000 churches failed
to give directly to the Home Mission
board aroused the ire of the commis
sioners representing self-supporting
synods and Presbyteries, and, after a
brief but lively debate, the objectlonal
paragraph was eliminated. Rev. Dr.
Hugh K. Walker, chairman of the
committee, in discussing the report de
clared that unless the church support
ed Its home missions the foreign mis
sions would fall. The report urged
congress to act on the anil-polygamy
amendment to the constitution before
the Mormons secure the balance or
political power in any additional states.
Both morning and afternoon sessions
were devoted to routine business.
Dr. Ewing's Report.
Rev. Dr. T. D. Kwlng. of lown,
chairman or the committee on aid for
colleges, read the report of the com
mittee at the afternoon session. The
report stated that 4,000 churches are
not presenting any gifts to tlie board.
In commenting on this, Dr. Kwlng
said the establishment of the board
of aid for colleges had met with dis
favor and it was evident that the
board was still unfavorably regarded,
in his appeal for increased assistance.
Dr. Kwing said:
"Our church Is largely dependent
upon this board for ministers, mis
sionaries and teachers. This Is where
home and foreign missions grow."
Rev. Dr. Heriick Johnson and Rev.
Dr. IC. C. Ray, of Chicago; Rev. Dr.
W. (!. Roberts, president of -Centre
college, Danville. Kentucky, and Rev.
Dr. John DeWltt. of Princeton unl
verslty, spoke in behalf of the board.
The committee recommended that not
less than $ino,000, the amount actu
ally needed, he contributed this year.
The report was approved.
The committee on church erection
in their report recommended the adop
tion nf the following resolution:
"That rule 1, article li. 'plan of the

The coroner said that the young wo
man met Stanley the masseur, about
n year ago in a social way. She broke
her ankle soon after this and went, to
Stanley on a number of occasions to
receive the hot air treatment. The
iioroner said he was convinced that
there was nothing in her connection
with Stanley which could be Inter
preted as being to her discredit. She
went, early last week to the Ninth
avenue house to have her foot dressed
and attended to and at that time Stan
ley was sober. Later she had gone
back there, and finding him intoxi
cated, she left and had not returned
to the place. Tills, lie said, would ex
plain her so-called disappearance.
The woman, according to Coroner
Uauscli. never saw Father Phillip.
Coroner Bansch said tonight: "The
autopsy shows that Father Phillips
was In very poor condition physically.
A. collapse was liable to come nt any
time. When it did come lie simply lay
down nnd died.
"I think that he and Stanley had
been drinking together. In my opin
ion, after the priest died. Stanley -was
frightened and took one drink after
another until he was in a state of ab
ject stupidity. His actions through the
entire thing are those of a very
drunken man. He just delayed notify
ing the proper authoiities. That, T
think. Is his worst crime."

were driven from .lackson to Market
and back the avenue to Jackson. The

tinuous ovation. Almost every child
had been provided with a. good sized
American flag and tliolr voices nnd
flags were worked In unison. Each lit
tle girl wore -white and most of them
had red sashes. Thousands of the
youngsters had gathered large bou
quets, which they threw nt the presi
dent as he passed, along.
In some- cases every pupil from a
cei tain '.school carried a bouquet of the
same variety and color of flowers.
Some classes spread the flowers In the
street that the president nnd his party
might literally ride among the roses.
President McKlnley rode with his
hat. In his hand, bowing and waving
from right to left, smiling continually
and receiving the ovation with evident
pride and happiness.
The avenue was rich In color. in
addition to the thousands of flags car
ried hy the children, the residences
were decorated with hunting and flags
and the school banners of silk, bear
ing the names of every school in the
city, were conspicuous objects along
(he line of march. Half way between
California and Sacramento streets the
president's carriage brought up and
the other conveyances came to a
standstill. "Speech, speech, speech,"
rang out along the avenue and the
children swarmed about by the thous
ands. President McKlnley sat in Ills
carriage, reaching down and slinking
their hands for several minutes. He
finally rose and was greeted with
cheers. The president spoke briefly,
