that the Spanish ships had been sunk
because the plugs were drawn by the
Spanish. Ho explained that It was im
possible to sink a nhlp by hitting it
above the water line. Admiral Dewey ,
had , however , compelled the Spaniards
to sink their ships and that was Just
as effective as sinking thorn with

LONDON , Sept. 21. The morning
papers uro too fully occuplexl with the
general < election campaign to bestow
much attention on the Chinese prob
lem. Thn Standard , which dlm-imso ?
editorially the replies of the United
States government , says :
"The policy thus laid down implies
the existence nt Washington of a very
exaggerated estimate of the good will
ole the Chinese inlcrs. It Is to be fear
ed that the action of the fulled States
will tend to weaken the influence of the
alllns , and for this reason it is greatly
tc be regretted. "
According to the Pekln correspond
ent of the Daily News , wiring Septem
ber 10' , tne Chinese declare most pos
itively that the empiess dowager and
the emperor will In no case return to
the imperial palnrc In Pekln , us they
hold that it has been debccr&tcd by
the Intrusion of barbarians. This Ir-
iGConcllable attitude receives confir
mation in many reports emanating
from Shanghai. One of these is that
a reply to the denunciation of
Prince Tuan and others by the viceroys
an Imperial edict , dated September 17 ,
deals more leniently with the Boxer
movement and reminds the people that
both the Boxers and Chinese Christians
are Chinamen , who shall receive im
perial protection if they quietly dis
perse to their homes. The edict points
out that it is impossible for the impe
rial government to distinguish be
tween good and bad Boxers. It says
that if the rebel Boxe"rs still continue
to assemble they will be dealt with
Another report says that the edict
frankly declares that no executions
can be sanctioned until an adequate
inquiry has been made.
Further Indications that Prince Tuan
Ins resumed his former ascendancy
aic found in the Shanghai reports of
his promotion and in the statement
from the same quarter that General
Tung Full Slang lias been appointed
generalissimo ot the northern Chinese
( uniles and Prince dialing , general
conimander-ln-chlef of the Boxers , has
been made a grand councillor. It Is
also reported that Loll , former gover

According to various accounts of the

when the forts were captured.

Timbered Mountains of Colorado
OMAHA , Neb. , Sept. 19. W. T. Can
ada , chief of the special service of the
Union Pacific , has returned from Wyo
ming , where he has been In charge of
the pursuit of the robbers who dyna
mited an express car on n westbound
Union Pacific train recently. Chief
Canada is absolutely confident that the
capture of the robbers will bo effected
In the near future.
"We already have captured their
horses and have they locked up , " said
( Chief Canada , "and these men are now
being trailed by men who are as fa
miliar with the mountains in which
the robbers are hiding as they are
themselves. One posse secured the
horses about twenty miles south of
Dlxon , Colo. , shortly after they had
been abandoned by tne bandits , In or
der that they might the better elude
their pursuers by secreting themselves
in the heavily timbered mountains.
The scene of the pursuit now is In the
mountains where the state of Wyo
ming , Colorado and Utah converge.
"These fellows will be captured.
There is no question about the out
come. It Is only a matter of time and
such diligence is being maintained by
the men who are trailing , . , 'c bandits
that they can't keep away much longer.
So far ns wo have been able to learn
there are only three men In the gang.
The number has been variously report
ed at three , four and five , but from
the best accoun 3 from the men who
were at tne scene of the holdup there
were only three. It is possible that
one or even two of tnem figured in the
WIIcox train robbery. There were sis
in that gang and all but two have
been disposed of. These two may ,
perhaps , have been in this last rob
bery , but I hardly think so , as they
would hardly have the nerve to figure
In another holdup , knowing , as they
probably do , the fate of their partners
in the former affair. If these are the
same ones we will merely be killing
two birds with one sfone when we
capture them , as this last affair has not
caused us to relax our efforts toward
running down tiie pair who partici
pated In the Wilcox holdup and are

OMAHA , Neb. , Sept. 19. The sugar
beets planted by the company formed
of South Omaha business men are do
ing nicely and a full crop is exoected.
It is estimated now that the crop will
run from fifteen to twenty tons to the
acre. No contracts for the crop have
been signed ns yet , as two factories are
in the market for the yield. The Ames
Beet Sugar Works will buy the entire
crop at the price mentioned early in
the spring , but there seems a disposi
tion to let the beets go to the new Beet
Sugar and Chicory company , which Is
now established at the former Home
of the Good Shepherd , west of Cuda-
hy's. This new company wants all the
beets It can get and Is willing to pay n
fair price for the prorfuct. At this fac
tory a portion of the beets will no used
for sugar and the residue will be
worked up into chicory. The process
now In use permits the us'.wg of nil of
the residue for the manufacture of
chicory instead of leaving a large pro
portion of pulp , ns formerly , which was
fed to cattle.
It is the intention of the managers ot
this new concern to endeavor to induce
each farmer In the vicinity of South
Omaha to agree to cultivate one acre of
beets next spring. If each farmpr will
do this and the crop is any ways fair
the factory here can be kept running
for some time. As the growing of beets
on the island is nn assured success It
is more than likely that the same
South Omaha company will again contract -
tract for the land and continue the cul
tivation of sugar beets.
