Erne, of course, trained far below his usual weight, as he had agreed to meet Mi-Govern at 1-S pounds, which is fire pounds below the lightweight limit. Jn doing this many persons believed that the strain would be too much for the Buffalo lad. and that Mc- Oovern, who is ragged and tenacious, would surely beat him down. Many of the wise ones compared Erne's reduction of weight to that of Joe Wai- cott. when the latter trained down si£ne years ago to 131 Vi pounds in order to meet Kid Lavigne in the lightweight class. \Valcott made a mistake on the occasion, for Lavlgne cut him to pieces.

London. July 17.--Up to this hour no further news has been received regarding the reported massacre at Pekln from any source. In the house of commons last evening beyond an admission that there was no ground for hoping that the report was not true, William St. John Brodrick, parliamentary secretary to the foreign office, had nothing to communicate. An unusual iiuiil felt upon liie ciitiiuitttr uuen liie subject came up. A few members doffed their hats, but otherwise there was no demonstration. No question was put to Lord Salisbury in tbe house of lords, probably by a. preconcerted arrangement, it being considered that at the present stage of affairs it would Ite only embarrassing to force the premier to make a statement. COLONEL LiSCUM. It was whisyered on the ministerial side of the commons that the next vote on account for military undertakings in South Africa and China will be startling in amount. The most alarming dispatch came from Tien Tsin, July 13, via Shanghai," July 16. It is as follows: ·'At 2 o'clock this afternoon 7,000 of the allied troops were attempting to storm the wall of the city. The attack began at daylight- Its success is doubtful. The Chinese on the walls are estimated conservatively at 20,000. They are pouring a terrific hail of artillery, rifle and machine gun fire upon the attackers. Tbe American, Japanese, British and French troops are attacking from the west and the Russians from the east. "The Americans suffered terribly. As the press representatives left the field the chief surgeon of the Ninth infantry said a conservative estimate was that 25 per cent of the Americans were hit. Col. Emerson H. Liscnm is reported killed as" he was walking in front of the troops. Major Regan and Captains Bookmiller, Wilcoi and Noyes are among the wounded. The marines' losses include Capt. Davis, killed, and Butler. Leonard and several others wounded. "When the correspondent left the Americans were lying in the plain between the wall and the river under an enfilading and a. direct fire. It was equsrlly difficult for them to advance or retire. The correspondent counted 300 wounded men of all nationalities." Another dispatch says the allies were repulsed and compelled to retreat with a loss of more than 100 killed, the British losing 40 and the Japanese 60. The Americans and Russians, it is added, also suffered heavily. In addition to Col. Liscum. of the Ninth infantry, a Russian colonel of artillery was also killed. Tbe dispatch adds that tbe Chinamen fought with great desperation and that their marksmanship was accurate and deadly. Other telegrams from Shanghai and Chefoo indicate an increasingly serious stale of affairs. It is alleged that the foreign consols at Shanghai have cabled their governments that there is urgent need of more warships to protect that port, owing to the menacing attitude c? tte Chf-ssc and iie tesp- tation to loot the vast stores of merchandise recently accumulated there. It seems that the Chinese have already threatened to fire the great oil tanks on the Pao Tung side of the city. From Chefoo comes the report that the entire adult male population of the three provinces of Chi Li, Shan Li and Shan Tung are massing to defend Pekin. in tbe conviction that the powers mean war. There is little doubt that a further ch*rk of the allies at Tien TsJa would be the signal for a general anti-foreign rising throughout China. The Japanese officers are still confident of their ability to reach Pekln before the roads become impassable, but the European commanders believe au advance will be impossible before September. Fighting is said to be imminent at New Chwanj?. where th» Boxers ar» threatening lh». foreign settlement. The Russians have barricaded the streets and loopholed th« houses of the fore'jriers. The bank officials Out ·C Bloxvr* W i l l Br l»»Ut-d l Washington. July IT. -The decision »f the administration at the ead of a most eventful day is that the t'nited States government is still not at war with the government of (,'hiu^. The big happenings at Tien Tsin. coming on top oi the storiee of ih« last struggles at Pe.ln, have not affected the MUiiLuit? ul Lue auiuin_-HraUon ou ttH.-i point: the United Sutea and China are technically at peace. But this statement should not be accepted as Indicating a purposa on the part ot tbe United States government to hold Its hand ta the administration of swift and adequate punishment upon the- Chinese, without regard to station, who may be responsible for the outrages ot the past few weeks. It means simply that tbe government of tha United States feels that It can best achieve that purpose by regarding the status officially as one- ot peace. To hold otherwise would seriously cripple the- government In its efforts to obtain satisfaction for the outrages the Americans in China have suffered. We should find the ports of China, now open to us, closed, and all sorts of impediments would be tncountered which now are missing. The day was the most exciting Washington has known since the battle of Santleo M the v*»ry berinningcame Admiral Renter's cablegram announcing the defeat of the allied forces at Tien Tsin, and then came the account of the fight. A special cabinet meeting ·was held on receipt of this news, -with such members present as are in town. After the meeting Secretary Hay had a long talk with President McKinley orer the long distance telephone, and it soon became knotfa that the president had decided that it would be best for him to come back from Canton to the national capital. He will arrive this afternoon. The cabinet officers talked over the possibliities of reinforcing the troops in China. There was no disposition shown ,to withhold these troops; the only question was as to the amount of additional force available, and it was left with the war department officials to decide. The estimates varied as to how many could be spared, but the general opinion was that somewhere between 4,000 and 8,000 men could be shipped to the east from Cuba and the United States, in addition to the troops already under orders. A statement prepared by Adjutant General Corbin shows that there are now a grand total of 10.665 officers and men in China, en route to China, en route to Nagasaki or under orders for Nagasaki. This, of course, includes the ill fated Ninth infantry, which may not be in condition for further service. Gen. Miles was called upon by Secretary Root during the afternoon to counsel with him as to the projected troop movements. He favors the prompt dispatch of a large force to China. The war department officials were unable to say who commands the Ninth infantry since the death of Col. Liscum. The impression prevails that the lieutenant colonel of the regiment is ill at Manila, which wouid leave one of the captains in command. Incidentally it may be mentioned that through Col. Liscunrs death Capt. McCalla. of the Newark, if ashore, is the .ranking American officer. " Without exception, the foreign representatives in Washington accept as practically certain that the foreign legations and ministers at Pekin hav« been wiped out. The conclusion Is based on the accumulating unofficial data that the slaughter occurred, about July 6 or 7. Even among the high Chinese officials hope has been about given lip, but they maintain that there is no official information and that they are as much in the dark as others. The situation has a telling effect on the Chinese minister, who is under a nervous tension and agitation more severe than that of most of the American officials. Minister Wu declares nnworthy of belief the cable report that Sheng. director of telegraphs and posts at Shanghai, knew of the killing of the foreign ministers at the time he made a recent suggestion that foreigners be escorted out of Pekin if the allied forces would not advance. of Republican f~lnba- St Paul.

Ten Ro(llp» AlrrnUj- Hcrorerrd. Coleman, Tex., July 17.--Fifteen lives are known to have been lost In a cloudburst here yesterday. Ten bodies have been recovered, but only two were identified. They are: Joseph Spath, leading merchant or tiic village, John Fuleisstinc. It is feared that many more lives were lost in the valley below Coleman. The cloudburst, which followed three days' unprecedented rainfall, caused Ford's creek to burst Us banks and run through Coleman, a village of less than 1.000 inhabitants. Bewildered citizens, roused from their slumbers, rushed into the streets and were swept away. Many were saved by catching hold of pieces of timber and navigating them into eddies formed by the swift current, where they were drawn ashore. Spath and Fuleisstlne managed to mount their horses. They dasbed into the water and swam their horses to a house where four little girls were screaming for help. Each rescued two of the children, whom they took upon their horses. The animals were swept away, howevr. in a noble effort to stem the swift current, and all were drowned. A Kerrville, Tex., dispatch says: A cloudburst occurred north of this place last night. Many farms were inundated and loss of life is probable. The territory devastated is composed of well stocked farms, and the financial loss will be very heavy. Parties are out in boats in the suddenly flooded country looking for victims of the flood, and It Is reported that a number of bodies have b«en found and hundreds of dead cattle counted.
