During the latter part of last week the
news from China indicated that that
country was preparing to fight the whole
civilized world.
On the other hand the allied forces at
Tien Tsin were not yet strong enough to
advance upon Pekin, and had not yet
agreed upon a commander in chief;
Germany and Russia seemed to under
stand each other, Japan and France
were playing a waiting game and Eng
land was trying to make an alliance
with the United States.
All the European and Asiatic states
men seemed to be trying to foresee what
would follow the supposed inevitable
conquest of nothern China.
On Saturday Prince Tuan was report
ed defeated and killed by Chinese, in a
battle among themselves, a report that
was likely a fake.
Three transports sailed from Germany
with troops for China, and the Emperor
instructed them to take no prisoners.
His speech to the troops was severely
criticized by the German Press. The
ac tion of Russia in not sending her army
in Manchuria, said to number 100,000
and well equipped with artillery was
noted; and some people thought there
was a secret understanding between
Russia and China; and that the reported
massacre of the Russian Minister and
family, (with horrible details) and the
reported aggressions of the Chinese
along the Amur, were all fakes.
On Tuesday a dispatch from London
read as follows:
After long weeks of anxiety, the
suspense felt in Great Britain with re
gard to the safety of the British lega
tion at Pekin, has been relieved by the
receipt this morning of the following
message from Sir Claude Mac Donald,
dated Pekin, July 21, through Rear
Admiral Bruce at Cbemulpho, July 30.
"The British legation at Pekin, from
June 20 to July 4 was repeatedly attack
ed by Chinese troops on all sides with
both rifles and artillery fire. Since July
16 an armistice has prevailed, but a
cordon is strictly drawn on both sides of
our position. The Chinese barricades
are close to ours. All women and chil
dren are in the British legation.
"Casualties to date, 62 killed, includ
ing C&pt. Strouts, R. M. L. 1., and a
number of wounded in the hospital, in
cluding Capt. Halliday, R. M. L. I.
The rest of the legation are all well
except David, Olipbant and Warren,
killed July 21. "Mac Donald. "
It is observed, however, that, curious
ly enough, no mention is made of the
condition of the garrison with regard
either to food or ammunition, the infer
ence being that it depends upon stores
which must be fast diminishing in quan
tity. Putting this at their best, "says
the Times." it is clear that relief is ex
tremely urgent; that the legations are
in a state of siege, and that the safety of
their members is of a purely relative
kind. FORD.
Gen. Chaffee arrived at Taku, Satur
day, and the British and American
troops at Tien Tsin were getting ready
to advance as fast as possible. The
Chinese army occupied three great
camps within sight of Tien Tsin.
Tuesday evening, the War Dep't. at
Washington, received two dispatches
from China, as follows:
"Che Foo, (undated.) Tien Tsin, 27th.
Message just received from Conger says
since 16th. by agreement, no firing.

The second read:

transmitted the following from Col.

All legations have been bldckaded since

have bave been attacked continually
night and day by the Chinese soldiers
from than 10 encampments. By a su
preme effort we are still defending.
We are daily awaiting with the greatest
anxiety arrival of reinforcing army and
if you can't reach here in less than a
week's time it is probable that we will

The following dispatch, dated Che

Admiral Remey yesterday morning:
' Takri, July 28.—Japanese military

Yesterday the allies at Tien Tsin were
preparing to advance upon the Chinese
positions, as rapidly as possible. It was
said that (Jen. Von Lessel, commanding

A dispatch from China says that the
allies are advancing to Pekin.
Two years ago Venango connty. elect
ed Joseph Sibley. Free Silver Democrat,
to Congress. The other countit-9 in the
district gave Charles W Stone, the Re
publican nominee and one of the Re
publican leaders at Washington, a
small majority, but Venango county
gave Sibley 8000 majority and that
elected him.
Sibley went to. Washington and short
ly after appeared at Harrisburg, where
he was accused of trying to Induce
Democratic members of the Legislature
to vote for M. S. Quay for U. S. Sena
tor, and after that on the floor of the
Holism at Washington he stripped him
self of Democratic garments and an
nounced a complete change of heart,
but he did not resign his office, as he
was in honor bound to do, and now by
the grace of Quay and the Standard Oil
Co. he is the regular Republican nomi
nee of that district for Congress.
The Independent Republicans of the
district have nominated Lewis Emery.
Jr. of Bradford, the Democrats will
make no regular nomination, and a bat
tie royal will follow between Sibley and
Emery; both of whom are millionaires,
popular in their home counties and
shrewd politicians.
Mr. Bion H. Butler, the versatile cor
respondent of the Pittsburg Times gives
some idea of the situation there, as fol
lows: —
i The Twenty-seventh Congressional
district has entered upon one of the
most interesting campaigns that will be
made anywhere in the United States
this year, and one of the most unique
that has ever been known any place.
I The district is pecular in its construction
which gives it a prominence, in that
respect, because, except for the small
county of Cameron, it is composed of
counties on the oil belt. That makes
the local wants of the district peculiar
to it alone, no other Congressional dis
trict in the United States finding, in the
production of petroleum, such a single
and predominating industry. Then
arrayed against each other two well
known oil men. Lewis Emery. Jr.,
formerly a State senator from this dis
trict, and Joseph C. Sibley, at present
the representative of the Congressional
district. The parallel between the
cafeers of the two candidates js surpris
ing. Sibley was a boy in a New \ork
village, not far from the oil country
frontier. Emery conies from a country
village not far from Sibley's home, and
likewise in New York State. Each came
into the oil district in Venango county.
Emery along Oil creek, Sibley to
Franklin, a few miles below. Each has
risen to prominence as a producer and
manufacturer of oil, and as a citizen,
politician and business man.
Both have gained great wealth. Each
is a representative man in his community
Each is identified with the many things
that go to adyance the prospects of his
community. Both enjoy the reputations
of being public spirited. Both have
thrived from their own efforts. Each
man has been a pioneer along certain
lines of the oil trade. But the parallel
does not end there. Mr. Sibley is a man
of pecular political experiences. He has
stood for various docrines, and while he
is running as a Republican now, he is
serving a term for which he was elected
as a Democrat. Mr. Emery has been a
Republican in the past, but he, to has
some new affiliations, and he is now the
candidate of the Democrats. The
Republicans are now shouting for Sibley,
the late Democrat, and the Democrats
are offering their praises on behalf of
Emery, the Republican. Sibley's varie
gated career includes being elected to
Congress at on time, in a district not his
own. While he lived in Franklin he
was sent to Congress from Crawford
countv. He was chosen as a compound
of Prohibitionist, Greenbacker, Populist
and all the other factors that make up a
kicker. While in Congress he was
referred to by C. W. Stone the repre
senting the Twenty-seventh district, as
"my constituent," which be was, for he
lived in Stone's district. It is a com
plicated tangle. If Sibley is elected this
Fall he will succeed as a Republican by
defeating a Republican who runs as a
Democrat. In the same district lie ran
as a Democrat and defeated a Republi
can, after serving in the houat? from
another district, elected as a fusionist.
The '"mix-up" is interesting, but it is
only the beginning of the complications
that arise, ami which would be a couieily,
were it not that the element of war
which it foreshadowed, has nothing
about it so humorous as it is serous.
Emery is a politican who has had exper
ience of the most exciting kind, for in
his whole career as a member of the
Legislature a nd the State Senate, his
campaigns have been made on a far
more intense basis than mere political
division of opinion. Whatever the
Standard Oil company'may appear to
the rest of the world, in the oil region
it is the octopus that the political orator
of one kind loves to talk about. From
the New York state line to the extreme
southern end of Venango county, the
Standard has been.held up as the heredi
tary foe of the children in the oil country
nurseries, and they are bred to spit out
the taste of the word every time they
utter it. This field was the home of the
Independent producer, and the indepen
dent producer breathes a hatred of the
Standard everytime he inflates his lungs.
While demonstrations have not been
emphatic in recent years, the ancient
inhabitants of Bradford tell weird tales
of the days when the ghosts us to walk
the streets threatening the pipe line
offices, the oil tanks and the "Era"
J rinting office, which paper was reputed
to be the organ of the oil company.
The ghosts were men clad in long
white disguises, and would suggest to
the spectator the Kuklus of reconstruc
tion (lays, except that being in a more
enlightened section of the country, the
ghosts contented themselves with ap
pearing at night, making threatening
bluffs, recommending the use of "forty
quarts," meaning 40 quarts of nitro
glycerin to demolish the objectionable
institution. Those days are past, but
the feeling towards the Standard in the
oil country is revived, if it ever slept, by
the announcement of Emery's candid
acy. In all of his oilier campaigns Mr.
Emery stood for the independent, as
opposed to the Standard, which was
accused of taking a hand in politics.
The fights between Emery and h*
opponents were very bitter, and
as Emery is an excellent fitjbt
er, they were exciting. They
involved the community politically
socially, in a business way, and in all
conceivable manners. This promises to
be revived in the Sibley-Emery cam
paign. Already Mr. Emery is hailed
throughout the district as the bearer of
the banner of independence, and bistling
at trusts, in his speech of acceptance, is
taken by the people of the district to
mean war upon trio Standard, and his
friends are enthused accordingly.
Beyond that Emery is, by the logic of
events, accepted by the ele
ment as a rallying force for the Republi
cans who refuse to be indentitied with
what they term a Quay effort, and to
add to the tangles of the situation that
will come tip.
It is plain that there are plenty of
causes for a general declaration of war
in the district, and for the rallying of
the armies, and with a vigorous fighter
like Emery, there is no question of the
earnestness of battle. But Sibley is n
tighter likewise. A man who can go in
to a neighlioring district and enrry it by
fusion against its normal inclination,
and who can coin" then into his own
district and carry it as of the
minority party and svlro then has the
nerve and the ability to change his
politics in the middle of his term and
capture the Republican nomination, is
no novice in political warfare, and
Sibley will make it interesting for any
man who has the temerity to engage
him politically. Mr. Emery is a man of
remarkable popularity in his home town
of Bradford. He came up here from the
lower country at the beginning of the
development, and being one of the pio
neers of th«! field, largely responsible fur
Its opening, and one of the first of the
oil men to settle in Bradford, he has
been instrumental in helping to build
'the city. He is a good "mixer," not
only in politics, but socially, and that
has proven to his benefit. Early in his
experience he built a refinery to work up
the oil he produced, aud later he has
embarked in other branches o£business,
so that he is an extensive employer of
labor. His policy toward his men has
always been liberal and his consider
ation for then reached beyond the j>ay
roll, P" that his reputation in that
direction affords him strength.
Yet in this respect the two men are
similar again. Mr. Sibley is a manufac
turer of oil products and in that capaci
ty lias a large pay roll. He is a man of
pleasing address, and knowledge of the
world, and has a popularity where he is
best acquainted that adds to the interest
that must be felt in the battle. Al
though a man whose party has been dif
ficult to locate for more than a short
time at once, Sibley has made friends
with the veterans of the civil war by his
success in attending to their pension
claims, and he has friends among them.
And so it goes. In the queer combina
tion everything seems at sixes and
sevens, and eacn man and each condi
tion is largely at variance with what it
should be. Getting Emery into the
fight was one of the surprises of the
campign. For several years he has been
devoting his time to his work and to the
care of his health. Interests in the
West have claimed his attention, and
when Mr. Sibley was nominated by the
Republicans of the district, Mr. Emery
I was in California. The Democrats were
exceedingly sore at Sibley for his deser
tion of them, and they cast about for a
man to defeat him. Names were men
tioned. but none seemed to be so avail
able and hopeful as that of Emery. His
experience in politics, his relations to
the producing interest, his personal
acquaintance in the district, and his
enthusiasm in a campaign appealed to
the Democrats and he was approached
with an invitation to enter the field. His
closest friends advised him not to enter
tain the idea, but the sentiment increas
ed, and finally petitions were prepared
from the different sections of the coun
try, and it is said, by his friends who
have the matter in hand, that betweeu
4,000 and 5,000 Republicans of the Con
gressional district signed petitions ask
ing Mr. Emery to be an independent
candidate against Mr. Sibley.
A reception was given Mr. Emery
when he came from California, and the
people of Bradford unite in saying that
no citizen of the town ever received
such an ovation. Trains came from
every direction carrying enthusiasts,
and an ardent Sibley man, speaking of
it, says that he was proud of the demon
stration, and proud of Emery that he
was so enthusiastically received. Trie
petition and the sincerity shown, en
couraged Mr. Emery to consider the ap
peal of his friends, and against his in
tention he consented to become a can
didate, and to take up what he says is
one of the fights of his life, although he
has had others. "I am not going into
it with any notion that it is to be a pic
nic," he remarked. "I have full know
ledge of the means and the forces that
are to be encountered. I know that
every expedient familiar to political war
fare will have to be faced, and that the
fight will be contested at every turn by
skilled warriors equipped with all the
munitions of battle."
Referring to the Lebanon county case
an exchange says:
I 'On thing the machine leaders should
appreciate from the outset in this cam
paign is that fraudulent nominations
will surely invite revolution and often
defeat. The people simply won't sub
mit to being cheated in primary elec
tions either by false returns or by the
insolence of political power. The spirit
of independence is abroad in lioth city
and State; and the best way to insure
the safety of nomination candidates is
to make the nominations so clean and
honest that none can question them.

An attempted escape from the West
ern Penitentiary in Allegheny was dis
covered last week.
Some months ago some nu-n bought a
house on Sterling St. opposite the wall
of the Penitentiary, and then dug a tun
nel from the cellar of the house across
1 Sterling St. and under Refuge St. and
" the penitentiary wall, to a point in the
yard, directly under a large stone pile.
( The tunnel was about UOO feet long.
. The ground from it was piled in the
, cellar, and whenever any unusual
, noise had to lv made in the house, a
I young lady played the piano.
> The parties who dug the tunnel left
[ suddenly. Suspicion was directed to
the house by some trifling incident, and
the police made fin examination and
found the tunnel. It cost a large sum,
I and the prisoners for whose benefit it
was dug failed (probably on account of
t not l.oing put to work at the stone
r pile) to take advantage of it.
