Louis, 'Sept. 21.--Ernest W, Furniss of Maplewood -who went to Galveston to make a search among the ruins for his father, mother and three sisters who are supposed to have per ished in the storm, writes to a friend Waker Boswell. a clerk for the Hargadine-McKittrick Dry Goods Company, that immediately on his arrival in Galveston he was seized by militiamen, who. despite protests and the fact that he was there in search of loved ones, pressed him into service in one of the searching parties. For two days he worked among the ruins, with ghastly sights constantly before his eyes, and did not eat a morsel of food in all that time. Young Furnlss has given, up all hope of finding any trace of the missing members of his family. Anthony Furniss," his father, 'was connected with the Missouri Pacific ouditins departmen , and lived in Ma- tplewood. He went to Galveston with his family about four weeks ago to get rid of an attack of hay fever. They registered at the Beach Hotel, which was .utterly destroyed. With the hundreds, of others, the son now thinks that his father and mother and sisters. Madeline, Grace and Esther were swept into the ocean. A Great Feat. Boston.

The first operation was per : formed the day after Miss Lynch was tak*n to the hospital. Doctor Nietert says that If success continues to crown his efforts the girl will have a new scalp inside of a year.

Genera) Chaffee and General Barrow second in command of the British troops, held a conference today and decided to despatch an Anglo-American column, 1.300 strong to San Hai Tien, under General James K. Wilson, to capture the arsf-nal there and disperse che Boxers. The column, which will ieavo tomorrow, will include two battalions of the Ninth United Suites infantry, a -detachment cf the Fourteenth United States infantry and 500 British soldiers and four guns. At a conference it was decided to ask the Germans to send a column westward to disperse the Boxers and restore normal conditions. The Japanese and French are oper- .itinEr to the northeast of Pekin. The sale of loot belonging to the Americans has begun. General Chat- fee at first decided to burn it. .but finally decided it would be better to feed the hunghry Chinese. Alleged German Demands. Berlin, Sept;'21.--A dispatch from Shanghai : says ;'·* that the allied forces have captured the Peitang and Lutai fortes' with -great loss. It also declares -that preliminary to peace Germany has insiste-d on the destruction of' tie Chinese coast defenses as well as the Yangtze forts. The dispatch adds that Viceroy Yung Lu is threatened with arrest arid has fled from..Pekin to Paoting Fu. .I'heforei'gn:-office does not at all agree with the views of Kin Gin Thai, secretary of the Chinese legation, here, regarding the innocence of Yung Lu. The correspondent was informed by officials of the .foreign department that both Germany and England had positive proof against tjjiS viceroy. Paris, Sept; 21.--A strong conviction prevails in .diplomatic circles that France and Russia will acquiesce in the German note to the powers. The officially inspired papers claim that Minister Von. Bulow's proposition is but a replica"of the declarations made by M. Delcasse, the French minister of foreign affairs- Thus, since these declarations have fteen approved by the French parliament, France's adhesion to the Von Billow note is a foregone conclusion'. The only reserve made by the foreign office is that the empress dowager shall not be harmed. j ( M A R K E T S BY T E L E G R A P H . H. J. TOHKR CO.. Broker. 109 Main StreeL Davenport, Iowa, OrnJn.

Burned Beveridge's Speech. Washington, -Sept 2i,--Two hundred thousand copies of Senator Beveridge's Philippine speech have -been consigned to the furnace in the Senate folding room. The speeches were burned by order of the Republican campaign managers, who. it is supposed, 'reached the conclusion that the documents would not prove successful as vote-catchers in the present campaign. It is understood that the speech had '.been printed "by order of the managers, folded and wrapped ready for mailing-, placed in large number of mail sacks, all this work being at a heavy -cost to the tax-payers, Uncle Sam footing all the -bills. Assistant Superintendent Brewer received orders the other day to see that every .-opy of the speech was consigned to the furnace, anil it was done without the subordinates asking any - · This speech by Senator Beveridge was delivered on the- 9th of January; and *.vas in support of a joint resolution defining: tie policy of the United Stales relative t:; the Philippine islands. It will be remembered that the Indiana Senator had made an extended tour of the Philippines and the Far East and this speech in the Senate was in the nature of a report upon his observations. Among other things, h*: said the Philippines belonged to thf 3 United States forever, and just beyond the Philippines are China s illimitable markets. "We would not," he declared, "renounce our part in the mission of our race, trustee, under God. cf the civilizatioa-bf the \vorid." Future wars, he said, would bo wars ;f commerce. The power that ruled tile Pacific would he the power that rule,1 i.he world, and with the Philippines the power would forever be the American republic. Senator Beveridge reviewed at great length the wonderful value of China's trade, ana said that with the Philippines \\*e could get the better part of it. "And yet," he said, "American statesmen plan to surrender this commercial throne of the Orient where Providence and our soldiers' lives have placed us." It is known that the political editors labored seriously with Beveridge's speech endeavoring to eliminate any portion of it which wou.il not catch votes.

Used Silver for Bullets. Yokohama, Sept. T, via, Victoria. B. C., Sept, 21.--The country is tremendously stirred up by the discussion ot Russia's proposition to withdraw from Pekin, While there is no fear of Russia, there is the -deepest, distrust of her diplomacy and a conviction, that an alliance exists between the Muscovite power and the dowager empress* government. The political situation here now hangs upon, the outcome of this Russian .question.. - An account has jus treached here of the straits to which the Pekin garrison was reduced from the lack of ammunition during the last days of the seige. Every scrap of metal, no matter how valuable, was utilized, and it is said that the enemy was greatly encouraged when silver bullets were rained upon them, this being an intimation of ·the failure of the garrison's supply of ammunition. A Romantic Wedding. Atlantic City Sept. 21.--An unrom- siuoc stepfather unwittingly hastened ihe marriage of William Shaw, fifteen years old, to Carrie Anderson, one year -his junior. The youthful couple were married yesterday. They proved the sincerity of their affection -by eloping, and, alter a chase by the bride's mother and an officer with a warrant, returned to Atlantic Citj-, received a reluctant forgiveness from the stepfather and the redding -was celebrated. Bridegroom and bride liad -been p_layinates since early childhood. Wil Ham decided he was old enough to get married.

Sept. 21.--Admiral ..' is not disturbed over the discovery of Lieutenant Hobson that his gunners -did not sink the Spanish warships at Manila. The admiral is visiting his brocher-in-law. Admiral Nicoll Lutllow, at Oakdale, Long Is- iand. "I hardly t h i n k the young man meant to say anything unkind" said the admiral. "The facts are -briefly as follows: The three vessels .-which he refers to, the Isla de Cuba, Isla de Luzon and the Don Juan de Austria, were found to be least injured of all the ten or twelve ships that were sunk. Naval -Constructor Gapps. a very able man. was with me and with the aid of his divers and experts from Hong Kong made an examination and "decided that these were worth saving. They were raised and I temporary repairs were made. The ! vessels proceeded under t h e i r own * steam to Hong Kong and they had ! been there for some time undergoing " repairs before Hcbson cvor saw them "As a m a t t e r of fact I never claimed thar we s u n k rhe ships. 1 reported that * we destroyed them. But I did see with my o^-n eyes an eight-inch shell strike* the stern ot the Reine Maria Christina. Admiral Montejo's flagship, and that destroyed her. * ; The statement that rhe vessel? were not. much injured below the water line is probably true. Everyone knows t h a t it is impossible for shells ro clo much execution below the water line, or for anything: but torpe rtoos to no much damage there. "I hardly think it worth while tr pay much attention to this. It 13 human nature to depreciate what others have done. Lieutenant Hobso-r may .have all the credit he can out" of his discovery." Says Hobson is Correct. Lieut. Commander H. t. Hall the Brooklyn navy yard indorses the statement of Lieutenant Hobson. H*says that most naval officials concede that the Spanish ships sunk in Man ila bay were not sent to the bottom hy shots from Admiral Dewey's fleet, but that, as Hobson says, they were sunk by the Spaniards drawing the plugs and cutting the sea pipes. Lieu tenant Commander Hall personaly ex amined the ships in question. "The hulls of the Spanish ships raised are all right" said Command er Hall. "They are simply water soak ed Of course the tops of the ship; are burned. The Spaniards soon saw that they -'were no match for ^" \mcrican warships and those were not immediately sunk took ret- uge behind a projecting part of the land that extends into the bay. and it was there that they were sent 10 the bottom."

New York, Sept. 2L--An order for ?3.50 a week alimony and a counsel fee of $25 was ma-de by Vice Chancellor Stevens in the Jersey City Chancery Chambers in favor of Mrs. Lenora Reynolds of Union Hill, who is suing WH- mont Reynolds, an active faith-curist They were married 'in 1S95. Mrs. Reynolds alleges that her husband left her in 1S9S, and has remained away from her. He neglected to provide' for her when they were living together she says. When she asked 'him for money for expenses he always -consulted the Lord about it, she says, and usually told her the. Lord al vised-to hn not to give her the-money. Reynold denies the desertion, and says his wire left him. He -blames -her parents, ami says he is -willing to' ta.ke her back atony time. She has been living with hor parents in Putts-burg". This unsympathetic reception of his suit touched William's pride. He vowed he "would get married anyway. So he went to Carrie with the story of her cruel stepfather's manner and the young couple agreed that the only thing was to elope. The planned to run away and rent a villa on Pacific avenue. There was consternation in homes of the young people wften it was discovered they had eloped, William and his sweetheart reached Philadelphia when they both became frig-htened. They feared to consult a minister or appeal to a Magistrate to perform the -ceremony and for a day both were wholly miserable. Carrie's mother secured a warrant and accompanied by an officer -set out in search of the elopers. They were traced to Philadelphia and found. The young couple were haled before -Magistrate Kochersberger and to him tearfully told their romance. Carrie's mother was moved by the plea of her daughter and · William's ' earnestness. She agreed that the young couple would return to 'Atlantic City they should have.a fitting marriage. The party returned home, Mr. Coons was ·won over and the wedding -was celebrated.

CaL, Sept. 21.--Lieu tenant C. G. Calkins, formerly navig ation officer of the -cruiser Olyrapia Admiral Dewey's flagship, ami now hydrosraphic officer at tins pon speaking of the Hobson interview said: -Mr. Hobson superintended the re pair at Hong Kong--a long distance from -Manila--of three or" the raised Spanish war vessels. Those three were the Tsla de Luzon, the Isia de Cuba and the Don Juan de Austria. They were not the largest vessels in Montejo's fleet and it is true that they were sunk by their crews, who pulled their pities, not, however, until the ships had been damaged and were in -danger of falling into the hands OL the Americans. Those three are the only vessels of which -Mr. Hobson can speak with knowledge. "Montejo's flagship, the Reina Cris Una. and the Castilla were burned to the water's edge as a result o£ the American shell fire. The Spaniards were unable to put out the conflagration. The Don Antonio de Ulloa was actuallv sunk by American shells that pierced her below the water line. No one. so far as I know, ever asserted that all the Spanish vessels were sunk by shots that penetrated the hulls below,the water line," Germans Note Status. Washington, Sept. 21.--The status of the Chinese situation at the close of the day yesterday according to a high authority, was as .follows; "There is now before the department of state · a number · of notes awaiting answers. These include the German note concerning-the surrender of Chinese ringleaders and. the original Russian proposition for the withdrawal of troops from Pekin, which has not as yet been acted upon as a finality. The memorandum from the Russian government and the request by Prince Ching that-instructions be sent Minister Conger to proceed with. the .peace negotiations at ·once. In addition there is a verbal inquiry f rora ' tne French government as the program of the United States.'*These various communications have proceeded slowly and the understanding has now been reached by the ad- ministration that there shall be general clearance of. the entire subject. This may "be expected either late today or early the following day. It will clearly enunciate the program of the United States on' the various questions presented. As far as the German note is con? cerned the belief is general here that the response of pur government will amount to a declination to make the surrender of the offending Chinese a condition precedent to negotiations of any 'kind.
