' The feeh'ug of unrest in the southern and--center provinces continues. The members of the official class in those provinces strive to remain neutral, with a leaning toward the foreigners, until they shall see whether the moder- afp or pytrem 0 factions wiH win In Pekin. Prince Ching seems to be standing for the dynasty and the old fered with. They have more war materials than they can use. and the military forces all over the provinces are increasing. The Yang Tse Klang is mined with torpedoes, and the garrison at the Shanghai arsenal has-just been reinforced by two newly recruited regiments." _ Baron HayasbJ, being asked by a representative of The Daily Chronicle: "Do you understand that Japan has now been allowed a free hand to settle tlie trouble?" rfepiieu: "I do not understand so, b«t I know that Japan Is quite willing to do all in her power to bring the rising to an end, along with the other powers. Japan is ready to put 22,000 men into the field." If any sort of trouble existed in. Pekin the settlement of the trouble would not present serious difficulties, but if anarchy prevailed the situation would be serious indeed. George Wyndham, parliamentary under secretary of state for war, said In the house of commons yesterday that since 1S95 English firms had sold the Chinese government 71 guns of position, 123 field guns and 297 machine Kuns. with ammunition for_eaoh clas* He also said that a German firm in 1899 sold China 460,000 Mauser* rifles.

From a foreign point of view the ! and Military society last evening, said capture of Pekin is the key to the the trouble in China would be far situation, as there is a. fear that delay now means a hundred recruits for the Boxers for every soldier of the allies in the land. Two couriers arrived at Tien Tsin on, July 1 from Pekin. One brought a letter from Sir Claude MacDonald. the British minister, to the same effect as that previously received from Sir Robert Hart. The couriers confirm the reports of the death of Baron Von Ketteler. They say that Prince Ching is doing his utmost to protect the foreigners, but that the native feeling against the whites is strong. Two high oflicials opposed to the Boxers are reported by the couriers to have been assassinated. A dispatch to a news agency here, dated Tien Tsin, July 2, says: "The empress dowager, so far from being dead, is actively striving to prevent the factions fighting. Prince Ching has informed her "that he would rather lose his head than be constantly obliged to warn her of the consequences of the prolongation of the present anarchy. Prince Tuan is quite willing that Ching should be decapitated, but the empress dowager will not allow this.. Prince Tuan has decided that he will take fun responsibility.

July 10.--Authorita- iformation just received confirms the report that Russia has consented to arid is even desirous that Japan should co-operate in the pacification of China.

Japan, it is added, must co-operate in the work of pacification on the same conditions as the other powers. Inilin** Kn in I ne and Flnnrne. London.

Lincoln, July 10.--Plans f»r the Democratic national campaign of 1900 were outlined and practically agreed upon ycstonlay at a protracted conference between the leaders of the party. The plan includes the appointment of a campaign committee, ns agreed upon betwcpn represeutatives of the Democratic. Silver Republican anil Populist parties at Kansas City. This committee will include members of all three parties, and perhaps also Democrats not. members of the national committee, but who are prominent In th« councils of the party. This committee will, it is said, have charge, In a measure, of ; the practical working of the campaign, and will work for fusion on fta'f an'! consrcssious.! tickets ·when- ever possible. The press and executive committee, it is expected, will, with one or two exceptions, be the same as last year. The personnel of all the committees was left in the hands of Chairman Jones. The question of national headquarters .-as also left In his bands. It was stated that Chicago ·would probably be selected. Mr. Bryan said yesterday that he had made no plans as to the part he would take in the campaign and would not do so until he had conferred further with the party leaders. The subject was discussed at the meeting, as well as the amount of campaign work to be done by Mr. Stevenson, although this feature will not be fully decided on until after formal notification of their nomination has been given to .Mr. Bryan and Mr. Stevenson, which will probably not be for several weeks. Committe^man Johnson, of Kansas, stated after the meeting that an understanding exists that Mr. Bryan will not tour the country, as he did during the campaign of 1896, but will make trips from time to time to the larger centers of population, remaining in Lincoln a great deal of the time. Those present at yesterday's conference were W. 'J. Bryan, AdJai E. Stevenson, Charles A. Towne, Senator J. K. Jones, chairman of the national committee, and National Committeemen Stone of Missouri, Cam pan of Michigan and Johnson of Kansas. Senator Jones announced afterward that the personnel of the committees woulcV. probably be given out by him In Chicago within two or three days. The position of Charles A. Towne in the campaign was illustrated yesterday when he. .with Mr. Bryan and others, wen; to the railroad station to meet Vice Presidential Candidate Stevenson. In response to the demands of the assembled crowd both Stevenson and Towne made brief speeches. Mr. Towne said: 'I ^m perfectly aware that this welcome is for the principles I represent and tbat you all believe in. and it does Justice to your high sense of patriotism. There never was a period in the history of our country when such a cn?is was impending.
