Since every Chinaman in Peking was - aware, of the circumstances, the well - to - do inhabitants began leaving the city, anticipating that war would follow the antl - forelgn sympathies of the government. The following day. June. 13, the first attack upon the legations was made by the Boxers. The reception they met with put them to EMPRESS FAVORED MURDERS. uikul, leaving eignt dead and a number of wounded. In their retreat they came upon a missionary dwelling, from which the foreigners had' withdrawn, but which was occupied by about 200 native converts, with' their wives and children. They surrounded the building and set fire to It; not a soul escaped. The same night the residence of Sir Robert Hart, the Commissioner of Customs, and some other houses belonging to foreigners were burned, causing a fire which destroyed an immense number of native houses. Deaf Ear Turned to Patriotic Chinamen Who 'Warned thl:OId Woman Against Her Fatuou Policy. But time went on. It was at the femous revel rriven the Earl of Leicester to Queen Elizabeth. ' As the days whirled past the revellers wished to forget the flight of time, so they stopped the clocks. But time mowed down the hours with a steady, even sweep of his - sharp scythe. One chronicler saye that some, tinie after, one of the gallants who" participated in that revel was suddenly seized with mortal - illness. All be cravod for was time to arrange his affairs. Then he bethought him of the time spent in that mad revel, and knew that the time he craved was lost; beyond recall. The practical person will smile at thVfblly of those old - world revellers. He knows that time pays no more heed to the olock than the weather pays to the almanac. But is the practical person so much - more" wise in his day and generation? He has trouble after eating. There is an. unpleasant fulness, sour or bitter risings. Perhaps there are palpitation of the heart, shortness of breath, spots before the eyes and dizziness. What does he do ? Get some radical cure for the disease ? Not at all. He takes tablets and powders, preparations of. mint, soda and similar palliatives and stops the symptoms. But the disease goes on. Some day the man wakes up to the fact that suppressing the symptoms does not hinder the progress of the disease, and he looks on every side for a medicine which will effect a real and radical cure. If men and women realized the relation of the stomach to the other organs of the body they would be more careful of its health. The slightest symptom of disorder in the stomach would be at once noted, and attencfed to. In. the 'Stomach is generated the motor power of the body, from' food properly digested aad "assimilated; The first consequence of disease of the stomach and its associate organs, of; digestion and nutrition, is to hinder the proper digestion of food, and as' only perfectly digested food can be assimilated, the nourishment of the body is reduced, and - a process of starvation begins. Each day the body receives a lktle less than enough to support strength and repair the wear and tear of tissues. Slowly this daily margin of loss reaches a serious total. The heart begins to feel the lack of nutrition and there is a - case of ." weak " heart.. . The i - lnfags begin, to fel - the loss of, nutrition and there are " weak " lungs. And so with the liver, kidneys and other organs. Naturally, with this weakness there ju me in the Boxers were masters vof the Eastern City. They were the only people abroad, and their hoarse yell. "Kill the for (Correspondence of "(Tie Eagle.) Pplrlnir AtKnist 17 Wiwv Mint tho nlllea jj J have entered the capital the absence of all eign devils!" was heard incessantly and everywhere. The next day they plucked up autnonty reaaers tne situation one witnouc C T , 6 mane another attack upon precedent. The Manchu members of the gov y cSanuuo. iz lasted but a minute.

He overheard one of the ?w Bal a CDief: "You told me that XT. t u"ec couia hurt us: how is it that I am wounded now?" These men had .,8U3,ed tnat the Boxe" bad made them ernment are conspicuons for their absence, but many of the Chinese members have re - ' mained. They showed astonishing courage In doing - so, since it is perfectly plain now that nothing less was aimed at than the extermination of the foreigners and a return to China's old time isolation. The Dowager. Empress the title is given to indicate the old woman who has no shadow of a claim to it the Emperor, Prince Tuan and other Manchu nobles of the Imperial house fled from Peking on the 11th, the day before the allies reached Tungchow. They would have left sooner, only the stone paved road . through .Cnangcblakou (Kalgan) had not been repaired since 1780, and .was impassable. Sixty bullock carts conveyed the old woman's personal baggage. Her female attendants is loss oi nesn leading zo emaciation. There's only one way of cure for this condition, and that is to cure the diseases of the iu ujuci auie, !tU1 t?lsJda: the Tszo HbI An was still undetermined what course to pursue. At the J? f , Chlne members of the Council, she issued a decree on the 15th of i1?,6; Viderlnf tne suppression, of - the Boxers. But their leaders, at the instigation of Kang JTi, and assured of the nmtooHnr. di - stomach and nutritive system which prevent the nourishment ot the body ai organs. This cure of diseases of the stomach and other organs of digestion nutrition is perfectly accom plished by Dr. Pierce's Gold - ' nraadClarea the, decree a f(reery and proceeded to wreak their vengeance upon the Chinese mandarins, many of whom were assassinated. In the afternoon, Kang YI were compelled to walk, because no more ve hides could he had. "The Emperor was com pelled to - follow her, although, the Chinese claim, he begged to be left behind. There is now ample evidence that the entire trouble was originated by the Manchu, under the leadership of Prince Tuan and Kang YI. It appears also that the Chinese members of the government risked their lives in trying to avert the doom from their coun ITiV , - raace. in an interview with the Tsze Hsi An. he stated that several hundred thousand Boxers were prepared to sweep the foreign devils away, and he strongly corroborated Prince Tuan's assertion that these men possessed a secret whereby they were rendered invulnerable. By his advice an order was Issued directing all tho Manchu princes, nobles and officials, as well as the Chinese mandarins, to attend a grand council on the next .day. the 16th. That day began with the Boxers setting fire to Messrs. l - lewellyn & Co.'s drug store, beyond the Ch ien Men (gate). A conflagration followed which consumed more than 4,000 houses and stores. Early In the afternoon the members of the Grand Council met at the Palace. The Chinese mandarins were greatly perturbed at their Manchu colleagues being admitted to the council hall, while they were directed to wait. More than an hour passed before the .Manchu reappeared, and shortly afterward all were commanded to enter. After try, not because they are in favor of.foreign en Medical JJisco very. 1 his - medicine may be called a stomach and blood medicine, purely and simply. Blood is made from food after it has undergone chemical changes - in the system, and " Golden - Medical Discovery," by curing - diseases "of the stomach, re. - '., moves the effect of those diseases which contaminate fot ' - V and,' therefore, contaminate and poison the blood made from food. It is a matter of surprise with many people who have taken " Golden Medical Discovery " for the stomach alone, to find that diseases of heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, etc., are cured when the stomach is cured. As a fact, these cures are the most natnral of consequences. Think it out. All the strength of the. body and . all its vitality comes from food converted: into nutrition by digestion and assimilation. But as food not properly digested cannot be assimilated, then, indigestion must mean . loss of nutrition for the body. And if the body' loses nutrition it must also lose strength, j because its - strength is supported, by. nutrition. As the body is made up of its parts and organs this loss of nutrition affects every part and every' organ, and soon or late manifests' itself in disease' in "ni 81 Prostrations the Tsze Hsi An said: ' The foreign powers have browbeaten and persecuted us in such a manner that we cannot endure it any longer. We must therefore, combine to fight all foreigners to the last, to save .'our face' in the eyes of the nunu. ah our .wancnu princes, nobles and ministers; high and low. are nnnnimnii i this determination for war to the knife, and i approve or tneir patriotic choice. I, therefore, make this announcement to you all, and expect all to do their duty to their country." One of the Chinese memkni h;h i ' in the WitnlmB0BMa I Ch'ang, former Minister to Russia, prostrated intercourse, but because they recognize the futility of armed resistance. Several of the leading Chinese members ot the government, found Peking a very unhealthy place, after the trouble had fairly started. Several were beheaded or assassinated, and a few, very few, succeeded In effecting their escape. One of these kept something like a diary, which gives an. account of the events as they happened. It is a vivid story, and explains the attitude ot the old lady's government. On June 6 a council was held at Eho Park, the residence ol Tsze Hsi An, or mother of the Emperor, as the old lady should be called. The Chinese party was in the majority, and persuaded the Empress to appoint the Governor arid Vice Governor of the Peking district to proceed at once to two large Boxer camps near Peking, and to order these men to disperse. If they refused, the troops, under General Nieh, were instructed to employ force. The two mandarins started the same morning. One of the most influential Man - chu - officials, Kang Yi, a determined hater of foreigners and of progress, had been absent from the council, but heard of the order issued by the Tsze Hsi An. He hurried to Eho Park, and induced her to send him after the - Chinese mandarins, pretending to be afraid that "the Governor might not be equal rK:eic??ut9 h?r commands." This Manchu, Kang Yi. had. together with Prince Tuan, conceived the plot to massacre every foreigner. He left Peking on the afternoon of ; the 6th, and arrived at the Boxer camo in time to reassure the leaders, to whom . he stated that they had the approval of the Tsze Hsi. An. Kang Yi then proceeded to the Southern Hunting Park, about forty II from Pekintr. uiiuoen Deiore ine lmDerloUE wnmnn onrt begged her to reconsider her ing that China was not in a condition' ti rht a,i luu powers. n.ang xi interrupted him: kou are wrong," he said, "this will not be lute our lormer wars with foreign countries. v nac uuw me uojprs npnnno - fnr tie They are invulnerable to bullet or sword, and tzunuvi ue aeieatea.

Palmer, of Peede, Kaufman Co., Texas. "Two years ago I was taken with stomach and bowel trouble. Everything I ate would put me in distress. I lived two weeks on milk, and even that gave me pain. I felt as though I would starve to death. Three doctors attended me one said I had dyspepsia, two said catarrh of the stomach and bowels.

Merchant, of Tylersbunr. Clarion Co.. rou must be mistaken." said thn Ts Uni An, me ooaies wmcn you saw must have Deen tnose ot local criminals. It Is Immssl - ble that they were Boxers." Yuan knew - better than to contradict such a positive state ment, but many other experienced Chinese ioal Discovery cures diseases of the stomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition, and enres through the stomach diseases which have their origin in diseases of the. stomach and its allied organs. It's a cure you can weigh and measure. As surely as the progress of the disease of the stomach is marked by loss of strength and loss of flesh, so surely the cure of this disease is marked by returning strength and gain of flesh. The testimony of those cored by the use of " Golden Medical Discovery " is that they feel their strength coming back as they gain new flesh and new Wood. " Golden Medical Discovery " contains no alcohol and is entirely free from opium, cocaine and all other narcotics; It does not give temporary stimulation but lasting" strength. The temptation of the little more profit, paid by less meritorious medicines, is sometimes too much for the dealer, and he endeavor to sell the customer a substitute for " Golden Medical Discovery," claiming that it is "just as good." If the substitute were just as good it would sell on its own merits. The customer would know of it, and ask for it. The record of cures effected by the use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is the best evidence that there is no other medicine just .".s good for the stomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition, nor for those diseases of other organs which originate in disease of the stomach. Insist, therefore, on having " Golden Medical Discovery." urgeu tne utter impossibility to fight the whole world. Marquis Tsing, the son of a were the Kansu soldiers, under command of General Yung Fu Hslang, were encamped. He took it upon himself to order those troops to come at once to the capital. In obedience to these orders the advance guard arrived on the 9th, and selected quarters for the general and the army. A host of Boxers entered into the city with the Kansu soldiers, so that on the 10th, armed and uniformed Boxers were met swaggering in most of the streets of the Chinese city, and it was evident that trouble was brewing. Some of them proclaimed publicly that they were in Penna. "Had doctored for some time without relief, then I began to take Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. I took seven bottles. Before I began to take it weighed up pounds, and now I weigh 176. I am working steadily, and feel like a well man. I send you many thanks. " "Our son contracted a deep cold about the first of July, 1899. and had a terrible cough," writes Mr. Will H. Whitmire, of Arkton, Rockingham Co., Va. "We called a doctor, and he pronounced it irritation of the bronchial tubes, with asthmatic trouble, and he informed me that my son was liable to die at anytime. He told me that if we could keep the bronchial tubes open, he might cure him ; but after treating him several weeks, and my son growing worse all the time, I concluded to try Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and ' Pleasant Pellets.' I had seen several miraculous cures brought about by the use of these medicines, and, of course, I had wonderful faith in them. I am so happy to tell you that I have not been disappointed, and that my boy is well. He used three bottles of ' Golden Medical Discovery ' at home and one vial of the ' Pellets, ' and was then well enough to go to West "Virginia, taking a supply with him. I am just in receipt of a letter from him, from which I quota : 1 1 am well and hardy, and getting very fleshy. ' " A GIFT FOR YOU.

Y. lormer minister to Great Britain, submitted, "If we must fight, we ought not to do so in such a discriminate manner. We should choose our enemies. There are also a number of countries which have been friendly to us, and against whom we have no complaint. Are we to fight them, also? Above all, I pray your majesty to protect the Legations. These must be our first care and duty, whatever we may do afterward." All the Chinese members supported these views; but all of the Manchu, with the exception of Prince Cbing and Na T'ung, were unanimous in demanding a war of extermination. Na T'ung was so outspoken in his opposition to war, that the other Manchu forgot etiquette, and interrupted him with cries of "Degenerate!" "Chinese traitor!" etc. Nothing daunted, he continued his appeal. The Tsze Hsi An listened impatiently, and when he stopped, she glanced at Kang Yl as a signal that he should reply. Kang YI, thereupon, suggested that Hsil. the leader of the opposition, should be placed In command of the troops selected to check the foreigners' advance upon Peking. The Tsze Hsi An accepted the suggestion, and appointed Na T'ung as his aid. The Emperor, Kuang Hsu, had been present during these proceedings, but by his alienee had expressed his disapproval of the prevailing Manchu policy. But when the die seemed cast he turned impulsively toward the Empress and begged her to reconsider her decision. . For answer, she turned her back upon the Emperor, regardless of China's ancient laws, and ignored him completely. The council decided finally upon war. The Chinese members were powerless. With the exception of Yuan Shih Kat. Governor of Shantun, and General Nieh, not one Chinese wae in command of troops.

A number of these men were at the Yung Ting Gate loudly bragging of how they intended to kill every foreigner, when a mandarin, dressed in his official robes, entered the gate. It was General Yao, a native of Anhui. who had arrived from the Province of Shensi for an audience at the palace. Hearing the incendiary language, he stopped and addressed the Kansu soldiers, warning them not to believe these people, because China was at peace with the foreigners. He had scarcely begun to speak when the Boxers drowned his voice by yelling: "Erh Mao - tsz!" (second hand foreigner!), after which they resorted to violence. Poor Yao was pulled off his horse, and, under blows from swords and clubs, he was dragged to a hastily erected I'an, or altar, used In the Boxer ritual, where he was beheaded. A native officer of the Chinese regular garrison tried to save the unfortunate officer. The Boxers tried to make short work of him, but his horse, a fast one, carried him beyond their line. This was the first indication of real trouble. The next day, June 11, Kang Yi returned and the Kansu troops publicly fraternized with the Boxers, and from that day acted under one common leadership. It was on this day that Mr. Sugiyaraa, the chancellor of the Japanese legation, met his fate. It had Written by Justice Cullen of the Court anDGintihe Dower.

From the 7th to the 19th the disorderly soldiers, aided by the still more turbulent Boxers, kept Peking in anarchy.

Nevertheless, four Chinese members of the Teune LI PLENARY COUNCIL MAY BE HELD Justice Cullen says in part: "There is some confusion in the provisions of section 1,526.

He occupied a cart with a broad red band around it, indicating that its occupant was an official of the second class. At the Yung - ting gate he was stopped by the Kansu guard and asked who he was. Sugiyama replied that he belonged to the Japanese legation, whereupon they demanded to know if he was the minister. "No," he answered, "I am the chancellor." "What right have you to, ride in the cart of a high mandarin?" was the next question. Before he could answer he was pulled out of the cart and otherwise roughly handled. He demanded to be taken before the general, but those who heard him shouted that his rank did not entitle him to an interview with such a high officer as Tung Pu Hsiang. A Washington. October 6 One of the most important questions to be considered by the American archbishops at their meeting in Washington next week it is said, will be the advisability of convening a general council of the Catholic Church in this country at an early date. Sixteen years have elapsed since the last plenary council was held in the United States. It was convened under Cardinal Gibbons' direction at Baltimore. In November. 1SS4. It is st.Ued that the Roman authorities believe that another general meet thle act, any clerk or other subordinate whose position is vacated by reason of the passage of this act. and except that the clerks aud subordinates of departments that arc abolished or reconetructed by this act, under the same or under other names shall continue in the service of the said city under the jurls - Jictlon of the appropriate, department, . subject nevertheless to remove! in accordance with the provisions of this act for cause, or to abolieh unnecessary positions." Then follows the direction for the adoption of a detailed plan of transfer of clerks and subordinates already referred to. The section then proceeds: "The head of every department, and every other officer by this act given power to appoint, remove and fix and regulate the salaries of his subordinates, appointees and employee, shall have power upon assuming office, or at any time thereafter, to remove any person assigned to service under him by said plan, and to fix and regulate, within the limits of his appropriation and isub - Ject to the restrictions, if any, hereinbefore prescribed the salaries and compensation of aaid subordinates, appointees and employes.' It Is contended that under this section a clerk or subordinate transferred to a depart filed with the Municipal Commission and a copy of tlie same furnished to the person sought to be removed, and until such person has been afforded au opportunity to present an explanation in writing.' 'This regulation is claimed by the learned counsel for the appellants to be invalid as beyond the power of the commissioners to prescribe. Mr. Justice Bartlett. in the Appellate Division took this view and' held, the regulation void for reasons stated In his opinion. Whether the rule Is good or bud in the case of - clerks and employes we need not determine, for in our opinion the relator was neither, but a public officer. By sections S4T and S4S of the charter the offices of captain of tho port of New York and of the harbor masters of the port were abolished, and in the dock masters appointed by the Board of Docks were vested all the powers and duties hitherto performed by such officers. The captain. and tho harbor masters of the port were unquestionably public officers, not employes. In section S4S It is provided that a' dock master 'shall not appoint any deputy, or assistant, or delegate the powers of his office to any person or persons whatever." In view of the fact that the predecessors. of the dock masters were public officers and that the statute expressly referred to Gain of More Than $2,000,000 for the First Seven Months of This Year.

A gain of more than $2,000,000 during that time is shown, the r& ts increasing from leuug jui lamen or his intention to call on the day following. The Chinese members of the Foreign Office replied immediately, begging him to forego his intention until a more settled condition prevailed and warned him that Legation street was surrounded by armed men. over whom they had not the slightest control. When Baron von Ketteler disregarded this warning, he met his deplorable fate at the hands of the Kansu and Yung Lu's Manchu troops. The German Minister was murdered on the 19th of Juno. The Tsze Hsi An and her Manchu were now aware that the die was Indeed cast. A decree was issued, ordering Yung Lu's army, armed with and drilled In machine and Held guns and modern rifles, to occupy the capital. By the same decree of June 20, Yung Lu was appointed commander - in - chief o( the Grand Army of the North. At the grand council, hld that day, Em - poror Kuang Heu once more made a pitiable appeal, which was almost drowned by Prince Tuan, who addressed the old lady in a loud KEEL OF SUBMARINE BOAT LAID.
