Ptwi*r<i Show ICrlutlH nee to Accept

WASHINGTON, Oct 27.—In diplo
matic- quarters there is felt to lie some
elgnithunee In tlie fact that France,
Russia and Japan, as well as the
United States, have not vet accepted
the invitation to accept the principles
of the Anglo-German alliance. It is
understood that this non-action of the
powers is not due to any concerted
movement among them, although e«en
appear* to be halting on the third
clause. A diplomatic official said to
day on mature consideration of thU
third clause It was seen to involve
two constructions, first, thut if uny
power took territory In China a* a re
sult of the present trouble then tier
many and Great Hrltulit would also
take territory; or, second, if any conn
try took territory in China, Germany
and Great lirtluln would seek to pre
vent this a t or otherwise jointly act
against the country seeking to extend
it* domain*. Hither construction, it

the illustrious dead, and representing
the nation were President McKinley,
lillhu Root, secretary of war, and
ether Washington officials. The city
was draped in mourning. Every busi
ness house closed at 2 o’clock and the
schools were dismissed that the pupils
might attend the services at the Orace
Episcopal church, where, hslt u cen
tury ago, John Sherman first wor
shipped hiiu where for years he was a
vestry mu n.
From the funeral train, which ar
rived at 10:15 a. m., the remains were
escorted to the church, through streets
that were thronged with citizens and
thousands who had gathered here from
other places. The route was marked In
'he early morning with many political
banners eulogistic of national and
state candidates of the various parties,
but as a mark of respect to the dead
ail these were removed before the pro
cession began. In the line of march
were two companies of the Eighth
Ohio volunteers who fought In the
Spanish war, while, flanking the
hearse was a Bfjuad of forty-two sur
vivors of tlx* famous Sherman brigade,
all gray and bent with tig* At the
church the casket containing the re
main- was removed to a place Just In
front of the chancel, where It was
bunked with floral offerings of great
richness. One of these tokens was a
wreath of white roses and carnations
brought from the White House by
I’reslilwnt McKinley. Another was
from Hie Richland Bar association and
another was tlx* offering of the corpor
ation < f Mansfield. There were scores
of others from many parts of the coun
try. The altar itself was draped In
white at the request of the family.
From the church the cortege moved
' n Main street to the cemetery, a mile
distant. At Central Park the proces
sion passed under an Immense arch of
mourning on which was emblazoned
In gilt letters. “The Nation's Loss.”
Heading (he column was the Mansfield
bund with white plumed helmets and
lust behind them the Eighth Ohio vol
unteers. In a carriage near that occu
pied by President McKinley were three
men who were delegates to the first

BERLIN, Oct. 2D. Discussing the
present stage of the relations between
the Chinese government ami the pow
ers, u high official of the German for
eign office made the following state
ment. today:
"Before LI Hung Chang can bo ac
cepted as the negotiator by the pow
ers Ills credentials must of course be
examined. So far as Earl LI on vari
ous occasions has refused to exhibit
them. When Dr, Munini von
Hchwartztiistein was In Shanghai lit
requested Earl LI to show them. Thu
Chinese statesman replied evasively:
"However, Germany will not raise
difficulties. If Karl Li’s credentials
will suffice for the United States they
will for Germany. However, ull the
legations must jointly agree upon the
precise wording of the demands to be
addressed to the Chinese government
ns preliminary to actual peace nego
"These demands will he framed tn
accordance with the German and first
French circular note. It Is another
question whether Karl LI will have
power to enforce those conditions in
case they are agreed to. All the pow
ers earnestly desire to show all possi
ble advances making toward the con
clusion of pence."
Official confirmation has been receiv
ed of. the news already forwarded by
private dispatches regarding the un
satisfactory condition of health of the
German forces in Pekin. Dysentery
and typhoid fever have appeared epi

WASHINGTON, Oct. 25.—In view of
the widespread comment that the An
glo-German allianc e concerning China
was open to the possible construction
of an implied or Indirect menace or
threat against some other power in
terested in the Chinese question, the
attention of Count de Quadt, the Ger
man charge d’affaires, today was call
ed to this point. Count de Quadt said
that he was able to give a categorical
and very positive statement, on the
highest authority, that the agreement
Involved no menace whatever to any
power concerned In China. He sail
this applied to all the parties which
had taken a hand in Chinese affairs.
Count de Qundt stated with equal pos
it iveness that there was no foundations
for reports of further or additional
features to the agreement beyond those
transmitted to the various govern
ments mid made public. He said that
document covered the entire transac
The response of the United States
to the British-German agreement, as
communicated by Count de Quadt, is
still held In abeyance. It is under
stood that with the third article,
namely, that concerning the compact
between Great Britain and Germany
to take suitable measures in their own
interests, In the contingency that oth
er powers seize territory in China, our
government will uot concern Itself at
this stage. It Is not expected that our
adherence to the arrangement woul 1
be required to take the form of a
formal signature or acceptance. So it
is probable that the answer to be made
by the Slate department will not bo
an unqualified acceptance of the whole
pact, but only will treat of those por
tions of the agreement with which ws
are directly concerned at present.

FREMONT, Neb., Oct. 2!>.—Mayor
Fred Vaughan of this city has sent
letters to the mayor of Nebraska City,
Beatrice, Grand Island, Hastings and
Kearney, urging that delegates be
named to meet with a delegate from
Fremont at some place to be desig
nated later, and attempt to draw up
a form for an Incorporation act for
cities between 5,000 and 10,000, This
Is to be presented at the next meeting
of the legislature for action. In the
case of Foxworthy against the city of
Hastings, which was carried to the su
preme court last spring and the law
declared unconstitutional, cities of
this class are thrown back under the
general law governing cities between
1,000 and 25,000. Since a motion for
a rehearing of the case has been d“
nled, Mayor Vaughan feels that some
conclusions should be reached prior to
the meeting of the legislature which
will be satisfactory to all.

recently convicted in Lancaster county
on the charge of selling liquor wimout
a license and tilled |300, has appealed
to the supreme court on rather novel
grounds. He operates a billiard par
lor at Sprague. The evidence in the
trial showed that he had In His pos.
session a quantity of intoxicating

which he was convicted is unconstitu
tional for the reason that It makes the
possession of any of said liquor pre
sumptive evidence of his guilt and
throws upon the defendant the burden
of proving his Innocence."
