Aa Ialctale OKmm te Sell
Ball rem Ticket.
The Superior Court of this state
recently handed down an opinion
in the case of the Com. vs. Keary,
sustaining the conviction of the
aaid defendant for buying and sell
ing railroad tickets in Pittsburg.
The defendant did not deny that
he bought and sold the tickets, but
contended that the act of Assembly
which prohibited the sale of rail
road tickets by any persons, other
than those authorized by the rail
road companies to sell, was uncon
stitutional. The Superior court in
a lengthy opinion, refused to take
that view of the case and declared
the law constitutional.
The law is very strict and pro
hibits anyone without authority
from a railroad company to sell,
barter or transfer for any 'consid
eration whatever, the whole or any
part of any ticket or tickets,
fusses or other evidences of the
holder's title to travel on any rail
road. Any person found guilty,
being liable to fine and imprison
ment. Thia act also compels the rail
r xid companies upon presentation
of the unused portion of any ticket,
issued by them to redeem the same
at a rate which shall be equal to
tle difference between the price
paid for the whele ticket and the
cost of a ticket betwe n the points
for which the proportion of said
ticket was actually used.
The Act was passed for the pur
pose of protecting the companies
a . 1 persons from the wiles and
fraudulent practices of what are
known as ticket scalpers, but the
act is so broad that it makes it a
misdemeanor for any person to sell,
barter or transfer any ticket or
tickets ou unused portions thereof -
THE WAR IM COMA.
The war in China, as we left it
last week was the battle at Peit
saug, eight miles beyond Tientsin,
in the direction of Pekin. It is in
P?Mn that the foreign ministers
were confined. The American army
w not in the battle at Peitsang.
Tt v, is the British and Japanese
that fought the battle at Peitsang.
The battle was fought on Sunday,
August 5th two days after the
battle the Washington government
received a dispatch from Minister
Conger that the Ministers were be
ing daily fired upon in their quart
ers and that the Chinese insisted
up them leaving Pekin to go to the
armies of the respected countries,
he says to leave Pekin would mean
that they would be surrounded by
the Chinese along the way and all
President McKinley upon the
receipt of Minister Conger's dis
patch, sent the following dispatch
to the Chinese government. The
dispatch was dated at Washington,
D. C, August Tth :
"first, i most solemnly urge
upon your majesty's government
to give public assurance whether
the foreign ministers are alive, and
if so, in what condition
Second. To put the diplomatic
representatives of the powers in
immediate and free communication
with their respective governmmets,
and to remove all dangers to their
live and liberty.
Third. To place the imperial
authorities in China in communi
cation with the relief expedition,
so that co-operation may be secured
between them for the liberation of
the legation and the protection of
foreigners and the restoration of
Before President McKinley 's mes
sage to the Emperor of China had
been started on its way to China,
startling events had transpired.
The allied army that had been suc
cessful at Peitsang pushed forward
driving the Chinese army before
them. The allies came up with
the Chinese about nine miles be
yond Peitsang. The Chinese made
a stand at a place called Tangtsun,
a place about a quarter of the way
to Pekin. The Americans were
in the battle at Yangtsun. Chinese
were defeated at Yangtsun. The
loss of the Americans killed and
"wounded and overcome by the heat
was about 60.
Last Friday a cipher despatch
was received at Washington from
the American minister Conger tit
Pekin. The Chinese there nrged
the foreigners to leave the city and
eek the allied army, but the
Americans refused to leave the city
unless they had foreign troops as
escort, troops enough to escort
all the foreigners in the city, some
800 all told, also some auuu native
. . - i ai s-n.
sn.i- .i,a h.v inintA the Christ-
ian church To leave the native
Christians behind would be to in-
nr their . ceriain death . It is
thus shown that cipher despatches
can be sent and received from? the
the Americans in Pekin. The dif
ficulties in the situation are great
ly modified. The allied army con
tinues its march to Pekin. ,
The Washington administration
is impressed with the belief that
the best thing to do under the cir
cumstances is to press on to Pekin
with the army and escort the min
isters and the missionaries beyond
the reach of the danger line.
A despatch from China on Fri
day from the American legation
says it is the imperial soldiers that
hold them in siege that means
the Chinese government soldiers.
The legations have lost 60 killed
and about 100 wounded and have
a number sick. All European
governments interested in the Chi
nese situation were highly interest ed
over the announcement that the
Russian government has given con
sent to the Russian minister at
Pekin to leave the city under a
Chinese government escort to go to
Tien Tsin. If that proves true and
the Russians get safely through, the
situation will be greatly changed.
The ministers and missionaries
have contended that if they leave
the city to reach the allied army
out posts, they will be murdered
on the way." On Sunday the Chi
nese government despatched the
desire for a cessation of hostilities
so that peace may be brought
about. To which a reply was sent
that so long as the foreign minis
ters are kept in restraint and their
persons and property endangered,
the powers cannot cease their ef
forts to deliver the representatives
of the respective governments.
The allied army is marching on to
On Monday the 13th inst, a
three word despatch from the
American army in China an
nounces the army at Ho-S We, on

BnvtN last week issued his letter of
acceptance of the nomination, as a
sophomoric production it will do, out
as a state paper, it is useless. " It is al
most entirely devoted to lmpertalbun.
He does not define imperialism, does
not say what imperialism is. If his
deliverance has a point it is against the
United States occupying territory
against the will of those from whom the
territory has been gained by conquest
or by'purchase In view of the past and
present history of the American people,
his deliverance is out of harmony with
the practise of the American people.
The American people have been acquir
ing territory from the first hour they
landed on the American coast. They
came and occupied the country. They
landed among the Indians and never
once said : "by your permission Mr.
Indian I have come to settle among
you and start a new way of doing things
among you where you have lived from
time out of date." Bryan did not tell
that whenever an Aguinaldo arose
amoug the Indians to drive the white
race out of the country, the white race
whipped the Indian into submission
or killed him. Bryan has not told that
the McKinley government has proposed
to the Filipino, what has been refused
to the Indian. He has not told that
the government has been holding out
to the Filipinoes that they should be
come Americans in habit and conduct
their government as Americans conduct
affairs in the United States. In his
letter speech of acceptance on imperial
ism Bryan has gotten the wrong man
in bis speech, the man should be the
Indian instead of the Filipino. The
Indian has never been allowed to ex
ercise the rights of government during
all the time the ' Americana has taken
his lands, and crowded him down to
the little end of nothing. It is a source
of regret that Bryan has gone so far
away from home to waste his talent on
a set of people that can enjoy the bene
fits of a change of government just as
soon as they recognize the new order
of affairs. Such thin clap trap stuff as
Bryan is giving 'the American people
must have for its basis oneof twothings,
Bryan is off, or be believes the Amer
icans do not understand the questions
he is talking about.

The most important part of a Wag
ner opera, according to tue composer
himself. Is not the music, but the
drama, which. Indeed, the beginner
should closely follow with the aid of
the look of words, since the music Is
usually sung in German words.
The Intending Wagncrlte should also
begin with the master's most popular
works, "Tannbauser" and "Lohengrin."
He will then at once recognize the fa
miliar muxic be has already heard so
often at concerts, and, struck by Its
beauties, he will attend many perform
ances of these two. Next year he will
want to hear these again, supplement
ed by "Tristan und Isolde," that won

Intense emotion and passion. Having
beard "Tristan" and liked it. he there
upon becomes a full fledged Wagnerlte

of writing letters to the Inmates of the

They w rite love letters, blackmailing
