The legation defenses are now ap

peaking, they consist of brick walls
from fifteen to twenty feet high and
from three to four feet thick, loop
holed for rifles. The ministers of the
powers Ignored the plan for a uniform
system of defense submitted by the
generals and consequently the govern
ments are working Independently. It
is the policy of the ministers to avoid
conspicuous work of defense, lest
these should prove an irritant, pro
voking Instead of preventing hostil
ities. Most of the engineers have rec
ommended stronger defenses than the
ministers will sanction. Major Edgar
B. Robertson of the Ninth infantry,
who command the United States lega

"the defenseless position of our lega

to attack on four sides. Mr. Rockhill

OMAHA, Aug. 5. Hot winds snd
dry weather of July have been suc
ceeded by a cooler atmosphere and the
backbone of the drouth has been brok
en by good local showers in sections
of Nebraska where they did the great
est good to suffering crops.
Estimates on corn at this time are
unreliable, but baaing last year's yield
at 210,000,000 bushels on an acreage
of 8,000,000 with present indications
and favorable weather to follow it
seems fair to anticipate at least a
good half crop or an average of near
ly twelve and one-half bushels an
acre. Estimates at this time are sub
ject to change and the one given is
The reduced crop will be materially
changed by the corresponding higher
price to be realized by the amount
yielded. It must be remembered that
the corn producing belt of Nebraska is
confined to the extreme eastern and
northeastern part of the state.
The Nebraska wheat crop escaped
the drouth, as It was out of danger be
fore the hot winds made their appear
ance. The Increased acreage, together
with the excellent yield per acre,' as
sures a harvest In bushels in excess of
Perhaps' the crop which has been
damaged more than any other by the
drouth is the potato crop. Districts
heretofore yielding from 200 to 250
bushels per acre report yields this year
of from ten to fifty bushels only.
The hay crop in the range districts
west and northwest will be far in ex
cess of any past season.
The oats crop will be light The
yield per acre will be nominal in some
districts, not to exceed ten bushels
Excellent crop reports come from
the irrigated districts in the state.

FORT SILL, Okl., Aug. 3 A town
of 10,000 people, to be known as Law

the close of the land lottery yesterday
at El Reno thousands or home seekers

sre camped In and about the proposed
townsite awaiting the sale of lots Au
Already Lawton has 400 temporary
business houses, including a grocery
firm and a newspaper, and three streets
have been laid out. A national bank

last of the 13,000 names were drawn
from the wheels last night the great
boxes containing the 154.000 names of
unlucky applicants were taken to the
school bouse. There the work of
drawing was continued, but no record
other than numbering the envelopes
and notifying the owner of the name
therein is being made.' ,
It is thought no less tnan 20,000
names a day will be drawn from now
on. The last numbers giving a home
stead to their owners were drawn In
the El Reno district by C. H. Halbrook
of Portland. Mich., and by Harvey F.
McLaughlin of Arkansas City, Kan., in
the Lawton district The closing scene
was tame and unmarked by any kind
of demonstration. The streets today
are lined with prairie schooners laden
with household goods and all are bead

day accommodated about 40,000 visit
ors is nearly deserted today. Last
nlgnt'a and this morning's trains have
carried away hundreds who remained
for the close of the drawings. The
commissioners who will have charge of
selling town sites will leave today or
tomorrow for their districts. The
sales wilt begin on August 6.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 3. An answer
to a brief filed at the Interior depart
ment by former Senator Thurston,
representing the Cherokee Oil and
Gas company, seeking a renewal of
valuable oil leases in Indian territory,
has been filed by R C. Adams, repre
senting the Delaware Indians. About
11,520 acres of valuable land are at
stake. A bearing which had been set
for Aug'-t II, when the question of
renewing the leases was to be taken
up, has been postponed until Septem
ber 11 and the Delaware Indians will
seek further postponement until after
congress meets. The brief of the
Delaware asks the rejection of the
application of the Cherokee company
in Its entirety and claims that the
company doe not present a fslr rea
son "why It should have eighteen sec
tions of land, covering the hemes and
Improvements of persons who have
prior and permanent rights."

Opea the Feretseers,
CANTON, Aug. 2 Violent anti-foreign
placards emanating from the Box
ers have been posted on the Christian
chapels. The placards protest against
the imposition of the house tax, saying
It is only exacted In order to meet the
indemnity to be paid to the powers,
and proceeds: "If money can be ob
tained, why not make war on the for
eigners? China is not yet defeated.
It Is only the government's eyes which
are blinded by disloyal ministers. If
we refuse to fight, then It is a case of
being too greedy to live, yet fearing
death. How can the steadily studied
military arts be used except against
foreigners? How can we otherwise
employ our regiments? During 1901
much money will be collected through
lotteries, gambling and general taxes,
but they will never be satisfied. There
fore, should the house tax be collected,
we will demolish the chapels and drive
out the Christians."

LONDON, Aug. 2. In the house of
commons today Lord 8tanley, the
financial secretary of the war office,
replying to a question, said the cost
of the war in South Africa from April
to July 31 was 35,750,000, partly
chargeable against the deficit of last
year. The actual cost In July was
1.250.000 weekly. The statement was
greeted with Ironical cheers.
The chancellor of the exchequer. Sir
Michael Hicks-Beach, said if the war
continued at the same cost for the next
three months it would necessitate
spending the whole of the reserve be

quarter, but be had reason to hope that
this would net be necessary.

PITTSBURG, Aug. 2. The Commer
c;al Gazette tomorrow will say: "Th?
Amalgamated executive board last
evening received by te!grnh a flat
refusal from J. Pierpont Morgna to re
open the wage conference where it
was broken off at the Hotel Lincoln
nearly three weeks ago. The powers
of the steel combine insist in this com
munication that the only basis of set
tlement will be on the terms which the
financial backer of the combine, Pres
ident C. M. Schwab and Chairman El
bert H. Gery laid down at the meetin?
with the Amalgamated executive in
New York last Saturday.
"A member of the executive board
said last night: "The terms are denom
inated by those who have the best In
terest of the organization of the steel
workers at heart as the most unfair,
the most unjust ever proposed to any
body of workingmen by a set of em
ployers or a corporation. The terms
are such that the executive board of
the Amalgamated association cannot
accept and has already gone on record
to that effect'
"Tomorrow morning the answer of
Mr. Morgan Is expected by mail. There
Is scarcely a fragment of hope that
the Amalgamated association will back
down from Its well known position.
The leaders of the workers will, lr re
ply, outline their plans to the steel
corporation for a continuation of thft
great struggle. They will include the
stopping of every wheel possible In the
works of the combine and the exten
sion of the strike in all possible di
rections by the Amalgamated associa
tion. "Today may develop much, but if
the combine cannot be made to waver
through the influence that will be
brought to bear, the great conflict will
probably be fought to a bitter end."
After two days at patient waiting, at
about 5 o'clock last evening the Amal
gamated men in waiting at headquar
ters were Informed by telephone from
the Carnegie Steel company's offices
that the answer from the New York
headquarters of the steel corporation
a as awaiting them. Hasty pre para
tlons were made to adjourn and get
ting to the Carnegie building without
letting the newspaper men know what
was in the wind.
President Shaffer, In making his exit
fiom the headquarters, was asked If
he would return. His reply was, "If
H Is necessary, I will."
Shaffer, Williams and one or two
others, by making long detours, avoid
ed the reporters and reached the Car
negie offices unnoticed. The reply
from New York was shown them and
without much comment the members
dispersed with the announcement that
the matter would be presented to the
entire board and action taken without

The admiral In his letter challenges

fact that he disobeyed orders, and
suggested that It be modified. The

ground that according to the official
