London, July 2. —Official dispatches
received by the consular body at
Shanghai, an Express cable dated
Shanghai, July 1, says, confirms in the
fullest manner the report of the
butchery of Baron von Ketteler, the
German minister, on June 18. The
ambassador was riding on Legation
street when he was attacked by Chi
nese troops and Boxers, dragged from
his horse and killed. His body was
hacked to pieces with swords. The
German legation and six other build
ings were burned, and a number of
servants of the legations were killed
and their bodies thrown into the
Official confirmation of this ghastly
business has created the utmost con
sternation among the consul generals
of the powers, who expressed fears
that war a l'outrance will be declared
against the Pekin government. The
consuls entertain little hope that any
foreigners are left alive in the cap
ital. There were 100 foreigners con
nected with the legations, 50 in the
custom house, English and American
tourists and others to the number of
180 and nearly 500 legation guards.
The British foreign office, the Daily
Mail learns, has received news
the British consul at Chefoo that
Baron von Ketteler has been killed,
but no other information.
A dispatch to The Express from
Nankin, June 30. says: "French
priests here have received reports from
Pekin that the public execution of for
eigners has been in progress since
June 20. The news comes by runners
from French priests at Pekin, who
state that they administered the last
rites to the condemned men."
Nankin cables, dated Sunday, say
that Viceroy Liu Yun Yih received a
telegram from Gen: Yulu on Saturday
stating that the German minister had
been murdered at Pekin. Yulu, who
escaped from Tien Tsin to Pao-Ting-
Fu, also wired:
"Position desperate. Implore your
help. Foreign troops of eight national
ities enteriug Pekin to the number of
30,000 or 40,000. I cannot hold out
four days."
Outbreaks of the Boxers appear to
be imminent at Canton. The feeling of
unrest steadily increases. Boxers from
Ping-Tu were marching on Sunday
on Chefoo. The governor feared for
the town and sent to the warships for
A small riot occurred at Chefoo on
Fifty-two refugees who have arrived
from New-ChWang aver that the Box
ers have destroyed the railway north
of Port Arthur, and all the American
and English residents are leaving.
Gen. Yuanshihkan, commanding the
best foreign drilled troops in China,
has notified the German governor of
Kiao-Chau that he will not permit the
Germans' proposed expedition to Weill
sien to rescue Chalfont and the Misses
Bowden and Hawes, the American
missionaries in the hands of the Box
ers. The missionaries at Pao-Ting-Fu
were reported to be safe on June 25.
Nothing has been haard from the
column which relieved Adn»frnl (Soy
mour five days ago and then proceed.-
ed towards Pekin, but as It takes at
least two days to communicate between
Tien Tsin and Chefoo there is noth
ing extraordinary in this.
Our fonNti}» Will Negotiate Directly
With the Viceroy*.
Washington. July 2.—Yesterday's ad
vices to the state department, made up
of two cablegrams from Consul Gen
eral Goodnow, at Shanghai, brought
the foreign ministers at Pekin along
one day further in safety, showing that
they were still alive, with the probable
exception of the German minister, who,
it seems likely, has been murdered.
Some encouragement is drawn by the
officials from the fact that some days
prior to the latest advices that the
other ministers were alive on the later
date, for officials believe that the diplo
matic corps at Pekin could not have
been preserved through the fury of the
first stages of the outbreak only to
fall victims to sober second thought.
There is also at least the indication
that the Chinese government itself was
protecting them. On the other hand,
the statement that the notoriously an
ti-foreign prince, Tuan, was in com
plete control at Pekin was regarded as
an exceedingly grave development and
as tending to fix clearly responsibility
for the happenings of the past three
weeks directly upon the Pekin govern
ment. An ameliorating condition is
the refusal of the great viceroys, them
selves of almost absolute power in
their provinces, to be controlled from
Pekin in their attitude toward foreign
A high official of the state depart
ment said today that there is nothing
now to do but to follow out the course
the state department has already
adopted, namely, to have the United
States consuls put themselves in com
munication with the viceroys of the
provinces, treating th» central govern
ment at Pekin as incapacitated for ad
ministrative work, and meanwhile do
ng all in their power to protect the
'oreigners in their respective districts.
The signs of an amicable disposition
in the part of these viceroys is proba
cy the basis for the hope that they
an be induced at least to stand neu
ral and keep their own provinces in
trder if it shall be necessary to direct
lOßtilitifts energetically against the
'ekin government.
Not a word came to the navy de
art ment yesterday regarding the bat

'here earnestly expressed that the ef
jrts to float her will be successful, so
bat she may be taken to Pyrt Arthur
ad docked.

Jersey City, July 3. —Seventy-seven
bodies of victims A the Hoboken fire
haveb een leeovered. Each hour that
passes witnesses additional recoveries
of bodies, seared, maimed and burned
beyond all semblanfee of humanity.
And the half has not >\et been told, as
all the bodies brought to the sui face
yesterday were caught on grappling
hooks. About the first of next week
people will realize the appalling loss
of life, as it will then be time for the
bodies that are now lying at the bot
tom of the river to come to the surface
of the water of their own, accord. The
list of missing is still placed at but
few below the 300 mark. Of the re
covered dead 37 have been either posi
tively or partly identified, most of
them, so far as have been discovered,
being victims from the steamship
The complete list of dead, as identifi
ed up to midnight, follows:
Henri Busch, officer of the Saale;
Mrs. Philomena Cordes, stewardess of
the Saale, home Bremerhaven; Fred
Klter, fireman, Saale; Garre, sec

steward, Saale; Jacob Horloff, painter,

the Saale whose names have not been

are some 35 people who were on c«.aal
boats, lighters and about the decks in
various capacities.
Most of the bodies have been
found on the Saale, which is lying in
28 feet of water about a quarter of a
mile out from Communipaw. All of
the bodies were burned beyond recog
nition. The body of a woman was
found in the after hold Sunday night.
The bodies of a number of men were
found yesterday. The first was found
near the foot of the stairway leading to
the smoking room. The head was nearly
gone, and portions of the limbs were
missing. The second was found near
the steerage entrance, buried in a
great heap of rubbish. This body was
thought to be that of the steward's as
sistant. Several more bodies were
found in the same locality. Three
other bodies were found later In the
day, a little forward of amidships in
the hold. These bodies were thought
to be those of painters and decorators
who had be«n at work in the hold at
the time the fire broke out.
It is generally believed that a great
er number of the bodies in the Saale
is still to be recovered. It is thought
that most of them are under water,
and that many of them cannot be re
moved until the ship is raised.
The Saale had settled a foot in the
mud since Sunday night. The captain
in charge of the wrecking operations
"1 think I will get her off, but she
will never carry passengers again."
There was a scene of activity all
day yesterday on and about the Main
and the Bremen, which lie beached in
parallel positions within 75 feet of each
other and about 1,000 feet from the
Jersev Shore, opposite West Forty-sec
ond street, New York. The Bremen
was gutted from stem to stern, and
only the frame remains. The decks
are ripped from the rivets and what
wood remains of them is completely
charred through. The general opinion
is, however, that the Bremen can be
successfully raised and will again be
placed in commission. Despite reports
to the contrary, not one body had been
taken from either the Main or the
Bremen up to midnight, and the of
ficers of both ships say that should a»y
dead be found the bodies will be be
yond recognition. This applies more
to the Main than to the Bremen, as the
former is nothing but a mass of twist
ed iron. That the Main is damaged
beyond redemption is the concensus of
opinion of not only wrecking ex
perts, but also the .opinion of Capt.
Peterson, of the Main. The ship is
now nothing but a red hulk, from
which exude acrid fumes of various
density. •
Rumors exist among the wreckers
that four or five bodies were thought
to be in the steward's quarters of the
Main, buf a glance through the super
heated gas and steam exhibited only
several berths full of white ash, and
until further investigation is made pos
sible by the cooling of the ship nothing
can he said as to whether the ashes are
those of men or the remains of beds
and clothing. It is estimated that the
remains of not more than 20 persons
are board the Main, and should there
be a hundred, or even more, it is cer
tain none will ever be identified, or
even the exact number known.
On the Bremen, where the fire was
not so intense, notwithstanding the
great damage, the first body has yet
to be found, and will not be until the
ship is pumped out or explored by di
ve*s No diver has yet been down on
the inside of the ship.
Second Officer Sander, of the Saale,
said this morning that several of the
officers of the steamships would issue
a signed and sworn statement that the
captains of the tugboats did not do all
in their power to help the ships that
were lying in their docks. His ship
had been cut loose from the pier, and
he and another officer stood at the
stern of the ship with men ready to
man lines of tugboats. He said they
shouted to the tugboat captains, a
number of whom were close under his
ship, but that no response was made,
the tugs simply lying by until they
could get near enough 1 to the great
Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse to render
enough assistance to claim salvage.
Today claims for salvage aggregating
$150,000 were made against the big
llenonnclnu llohoken'n Pier*.
July 3. —President Gram,
at a meeting of the New York dock
j board yesterday, emphatically declared
I that there need have been no loss of
life as a result of the Hoboken lire had
proper discipline been shown. He said:
"Such a fire could not possibly have

"The situation is desperate. Hasten."
These words from the message of Von j
Bergen, a member of the German le- j
gation at Pekin, countersigned by Sir
Robert Hart, inspector general of cus- j
toms, and dated nine days ago, are the
theme of all private comment. They

Berlin, July 3. —From well authen
ticated reports the press representa
tives are able to state that yesterday,
after the detailed statement by Count
Von Buelow, secretary of state for for
eign affairs, regarding the Chinese sit
uation, Emperor William made up his
mind to insist upon full satisfaction for
the death of Baron Von Ketteler, for
which purpose lie resolved to send al
together armed forces approximately
as large as those of the other powers
chiefly interested in restoring order in
China. The precise size of the forces
has not been determined, but it is said
that they will altogether amount to
20,000. A considerable portion of the
German fleet will be sent also. This is
evidenced by orders issued last night to
prepare five large new battleships for
sailing. It is understood that Prince
Henry of Prussia has requested the
emperor to give him command of this
division, but it is doubtful whether his
majesty will agree to this.
The emperor and Count Von Buelow
are fully aware that constitutional dif
ficulties render difficult the dispatch
ing of so large a contingent, but both
are agreed that it must be done.

You can tell just as well as a physician
whether your kidneys are diseased or
healthy. The way todois totakea bot
tle or glass tumbler, and fill it with urine.
If there is a sediment —a powderlike
substance—at the bottom li ter standing
a day and a night, there is something
wrong with the kidneys. Another sure
sign of disease is a desire to urinate often,
and still another sign is pain in the back.
If urine stains linen, there is no doubt
that the kidneys are affected.
Any and all diseases of the kidneys,
liver, bladder and of the urinary passag
es and constipation of the bowels are cur

Remedy- There is no question about its
being the best and surest medicine in
the world lor such troubles. It quickly
relieves and cures inability to hold urine
and people, young or old, who take it
are not compelled to get up a number of
times during the night. For putting ail
end to that scalding pain experienced in
passing urin<\ nothing is so good as Dr.
David Kennedy's Favorite Remedy. It
corrects the bail effects of whiskey and
beer; is pleueant to the taste, and does
not seam to be medicine at all. Diseas

require the use of instruments to push
back the sandy matter so the urine can
be voided. lii such cases Favorite Rem

As the contest stands after Shively'a

I may be selected for vice president in
I the hope that he will-assist in carrying

; Bryan's running mate. It is pointed
' out as not quite conceivable that a con
vention which would refuse to make a
specific declaration for 10 to 1 with a
view of carrying some of the eastern
states would nominate Towne, who left
the Republican party solely on the
ground of his attachment to silver. It
is conceded by all the Democratic
leaders that Towne's strength is in the
west and on a silver platform, and
that he would not be strong in the east
on a modified platform.
Would lui|»ro><* Tow in*** Clut
While it is not a certainty that
Towne would be nominated, even if
there was a specific 16 to 1 declara
tion, it is generally believed that his
chances would be greatly improved by
such action, and his friends are mak
ing every effort to bring about that re
sult in the convention. New York is
still an uncertain quantity in the field.
It is still asserted that she has no can
didate, although there is more genuine
activity in the Sulzer canvass than any
other that is being made. Mr. Sulzer,
while a New York man, is not the can
didate of New York, and is making his
canvass outside of that delegation.
That the delegation under favorable
conditions, such as concessions in the
platform, would unite on some other
man seems to be perfectly understood,
but it would undoubtedly be brought
about by a movement from outside the
state. Whether the convention would
unite on Danforth or Van Wyck is un
certain because of the personality of
Members of the Maryland delega
tion who arrived here yesterday an
nounce that in case a deadlock lie
comes imminent in the balloting for
the vice presidential nomination the
name of Governor John Walter Smith,
of that state, will probably be pre
sented as a candidate.
Ex-Senator Hill returned from Lin
coln yesterday, and it may be said
that his return did not cause as great
a sensation as did his departure. The
mysterious silence which he maintain
ed and which he explained by saying
that "Mr. Bryan and myself agreed
that nothing should be said regarding
the conference between us," did not
servo to whet the political appetite
very mnch. Of course, it was not ex
pected that Mr. Hill would talk of the
conference, but there was a belief that
he would say something of interest re
lating to the platform and the pros
pects of a modification, but he was de
cidedly non-committal. When- askfd a
direct question as to his fight against
a 16 to 1 declaration, he said the con
vention would not meet for two days.
It might not act upon the platform for
three days, therefore there was no
reason to now discuss the questions as
to what it was to contain. To some
visitors Mr. Hill said his conference
with Mr. Bryan was very satisfactory,
but in what particular he did not dis
close. When the matter of his con
nection with the vice presidency was
mentioned he dismissed it in a manner
indicating that there was not the least
possibility of his being selected.
Bryan'* Positive Statement.
There has been much talk about a
letter said to have been sent to Mr.
Bryan, signed by national party lead
ers, urging him to agree to an elimina
tion of a specific 16 to 1 plank, but if
such effort has been made it will be
futile. In a speech delivered to Colo
rado delegates who visited him at his
home in Lincoln yesterday Tr. Bryan
emphasized his position on the money
question in a brief speech in which he
"I want to say to you that when
Colorado forsakes the principle of 16
to 1, and wh< n the people have ceased
in their support of the principle, I will
be found still fighting, even though
alone. There is one great principle
to be fought for in the coming cam
paign. and that is whether or not the
dolPar shall be placed above the man.
Whenever man and the dollar come in
conflict the Republican party stands
for the dollars first, the Democrats
I tan d for the man. Where there was
one reason In 1596 for carrying Colo
rado for the Democratic ticket there
are sixteen reasons now."
The dominating influence of Mr. Bry
an over the convention has been made
perfectly manifest, causing some con
cern and just a little rebellion in soma
quarters. It is not by any authorita
tive or formal words or actions by
him that this influence is exerted, but
in ways none the less effective. Its
importance, however, has not been sc
much in disclosing how strong a hand
Mr. Bryan holds on the convention's
course as in showing that there is lit
tle likelihood of a modification or di
lution of the silver plank.
The arrival of the Nebraska delega
tion, fresh from conference with theii
leader, was mainly instrumental in
showing Mr. Bryan's attitude. They
were hardly off the cars before they
met in caucus and formally put for
ward a declaration of principles. This
expressed "unalterable opposition to
any surrender of the principle of bi
metallism and a demand for a finan
cial plank making a specific pledge for
the free and unlimited coinage of gold
and silver at the ratio of It! to 1, in
dependently of what any other nation
may do."
KeliriiMka Ilclcjeate* For Towne.
When James Dahlman, the next na
-1 tional committeman from Nebraska
and a close friend of Mr. Bryan, was
asked if Bryan was for Towne he said
"I have talked with Mr. Bryan re
cently and 1 think iiis attitude could i
be summed up in about this way. He
is not favoring any candidate. Ht
wants us not to make our wishes toe |
prominent, as it will look as though ;
this reflected his views, whereas he j
wants to keep entirely out of the vic< i
presidential contest. But we feel that
we should express ourselves foi j
Towne, who is a favorite with most ot :
the delegates, and our work will be j
for him." I .
Mr. Dahlman also gave definite as- j
surance of a dramatic climax,to the j
nomination of Mr. Bryan by his ap- j ,
pearance on the floor of the conven
tion, for a speech that will electrify j
the convention and serve as a cam- i
; ii keynote.
"We ;• * to insist on his coin- ' ,
I in< r i. ...,d appearing before this;
j convention," said Mr. Dahlman. "The
Nebraska men will see that a resolu ;
tion is introduced and passed inviting |
him here, and you may rest assured ; '
lie will come, although he is personally J
. disinclined to do so."
Among yesterday's arrivals are many |
of the interesting figures of the party, j
including the smooth faced, ministerial
looking Oldham, of Nebraska, who will
make the speech placing Bryan ir j
nomination. Hill of New York.Perry |

The I'rolialili* Temporary (Tiiitrmnii
The real work of the convention be
gan yesterday with a meeting of the
national committee, to determine con
tests and to select temporary officers.
Mayor Rose, of Milwaukee, the prob
able choice for temporary chairman
of the convention, is a German-Ameri
can, reputed to be an orator of fine
presence and effective delivery.
Three members of the Pennsylvania
delegation visited Lincoln from Kan
sas City yesterday to consult with Mr.
Bryan. They were driven out to the
farm in the afteinoon. The members
of the delegation are Congressman
James Kerr, secretary of the congres
sional committee; ex-Congressman
Howard Mutchler and Mayor John F.
Fritchey, of Harrisburg. They said
they were in sympathy with Mr. Bry
an's ideas of the platform.
A good deal of importance is being
attached to the Pennsylvania delega- |
tion. It was reported that Mr. Kerr
had been delegated to visit Mr. Bryan
at his home in Lincoln and endeavor to
have him agree to a compromise finan
cial plank in the platform. It was
stated that he carried with him a
letter from James M. Guffey, propos
ing that if Bryan would not consent
to the insertion of a plank endorsing
bimetallism, without reference to a
specific ratio, the eastern leaders would
agree to nominate a candidate for vice
president whose views would be in
perfect accord with his. Col. Guffey
denied that Mr. Kerr went as a repre
sentative, or that he had in his pes
possession any letter signed by him.
The following members of the Dem
ocratic national committee have so far
been chosen: Arkansas, James P.
Clark; Connecticut, Homer S. Cum
mings; Florida, George H. Ranch;
Illinois, Thomas Gahan; Indiana,
Thomas F. Taggart; Kentucky, Urey

Three Months More of War in Africa
London, July 3. —It is clear that
Lord Roberts does not consider the war
in South Africa ended, as he has put
a stop to the return of civilians and
has ordered the mining men back to
Bloemfontein. He is credited with
thinking that three months must
elapse before affairs will be settled
enough to permit the resumption of
Cnhiin Tcnclu'r* in lloMton.
Boston, July 3. —The United States

statement of the public debt shows
that at the close of business June 30,
1900, the debt, less cash in the treasury,
amounted to $1,107,711,258. a decrease
for the month of $14,897,553. This de
crease is accounted for by an increase
in the cash on hand and by redemption
2 per cent bonds.
