Another Day of Silence from the Chinese
Capital Passed ,
Washington Official ! Are Looking : for
Answer to the Numerous Inquiries
Minister Wu. la Still Confident that the
Lcgatloners Are Alive.
WASHINGTON , July 30. There is
a growing expectation at the State de
partment that news of the utmost im
portance may be forthcoming at any
moment from Pekin. It was even
thought that something might be re
ceived today , but this hope was
doomed to disappointment. The few
cablegrams that were received re
ferred to minor matters and did not
touch at all upon conditions in the
Chinese capital. It is believed that
the basis for this expectation Is the
knowledge on the part of officials that
certain machinery heretofore set in
motion may result in the opening up
of communication through some se
cret and reliable channel. It is known
that a second effort has been made by
our own government to get another
message from Mr. Conger and that
nearly all of the powers also have re
sorted to private agencies in their own
interest with a like object.
The fact has just been developed
that one of the last acts of the late
Colonel Liscum before his death at
Tien Tsin was to undertake the dis
patch of a spi' to Pekin. General Dor-
ward , the British commanding officer
at Tien Tsin , also sent out two mes
sengers and it is believed that the
Japanese did the same. Up to date
not one of the messengers has returned
to Tien Tsin , nor has there been a
single word heard from any of them.
This fact , however , has not caused the
abandonment of hope , and this is true
in particular of the message expected
from Mr. Conger.
Minister Wu is perhaps the basis for
this hope on our part and he main
tains unshaken confidence in his orig
inal assertion that the news , when it
does come , will show that the lega-
tioners are alive. The message re
ported to have come through Mission
ary Wilder at Che Fee is regarded
as most promising.
Minister Wu had no cablegrams him
self today , nor had the State depart
ment any directly from China. Noth
ing further has been heard as to the
date set for the beginning of the move
ment toward Pekin , and it is remem
bered that the details must be fixed
by the military commanders upon the
A message came to the War depart
ment from the quartermaster on the
Lennox , announcing the arrival of that
ship , together with the Conemaugh , at
Kobe , Japan. They have aboard the
mounts for the Sixth cavalry , and al
though they will start for Taku at
once , not less than five days will be
consumed in this last stage of the
voyage. It is doubtful whether Gen
eral Chaffee would care to leave Taku
without horses for the Sixth cavalry ,
particularly as , according to all re
ports , mounted cavalry is needed for
successful operations in the flat coun
try lying between Tien Tsin and Taku.
This fact alone may delay operations
until late in the present week , though
at least a portion of the international
column may start on the day fixed ,
namely , tomorrow. Assurances re
ceived here show that the Japanese
government is doing all in its power
to facilitate tVe international move
ment and although the good will of
the Japanese was never suspected , as
far as the Jnited States is concerned ,
the knowledge is gratifying.
Secretary Long has a cable message
today from the commander of the Buf
falo" , at Hong Kong , stating that he
has sailed for Taku. The Buffalo is
taking out much needed relief men
for the naval crews and also a lot of
stores aboard for the approaching

LONDON , July 30. The Shanghai
correspondent of the Times , wiring

ing toward Pekin with large bodies
of troops. Their advent must seriouly
affect the situation there.
"Today the consular body decided
that the situation demands the pres
ence of a military force in Shanghai
and the consuls have notified their
governments accordingly. "

ELDORA , la. , July 30. In a jealous
rage Otto Pennington at Owasa today
shot and killed his wife in the pres
ence of their two children and several
members of Mrs. Pennington's family
and was prevented from taking the
lives of all those about him onlyby a
severe struggle , during which he emp
tied his revolver at the objects of
his wrath. None but his wife , how
ever , was hit Pennington had been
separated from his family and the
tragedy" was the sequel to a long story

ome Fedeli , Italian vice consul In Kan
sas City , was greatly shocked when
he learned of the assassination of
King Humbert of Italy.

the School Land.
LINCOLN , Neb. , July 27. Land
Commissioner Wolfe is preparing to
begin another auction of sc aol lamls.
of which there are now about 77.000
unloosed acres. The available land is
located in thirty-three counties.
It is expected that the revenue from
the leases will amount to 8 per cent of
the appraised value except where the
lands were bid off at a bonus last year
and not taken.
Considerable latitude is allowed to
the commissioner of public lands and
buildings , however , and if his best en
deavor fails to dispose of the lands on
a basis of 6 per cent it is within his
power to offer it to the person who is
willing to pay that percentage on the
highest offered valuation. This gives
persons who wish to use the school
land an opportunity to get the lease
at the rate It is really worh to the

Like the young man In springtime ,
whoso fancy "lightly turns to thoughts
of love , " when summertime cornea wo
all turn our thoughts to the consider
ation of the Important Question of
whore wo shall go for rest , recreation
and health.
There are all kinds of health and
pleasure resorts throughout this broad
land of ours , some of them , unfortu
nately , anything but what their names
Imply , and apparently operated for no
other purpose than to relieve the In
valid and pleasure seeker , financial
ly. So much so Is this the case that
it is indeed gratifying to the one seek
ing rest and recuperation from the
cares of the business and social world ,
as well as the pain racked invalid ,
who is fortunate enough to discover a
place where to use a popular expres
sion , ho "gets his money's worth. "
One of the most interesting , pictur
esque and delightful places In this
country is unquestionably the resort
known as the Magno Mud and Li thin
Water Cure , located at Indiana Mine
ral Springs , Indiana. Here como the
overworked business man , the worn
out devotee of society and the proies-
sional man on the verge of nervous
prostration , as well as the sufferer
from rheumatism , kidney and skin
diseases for which the baths are es
pecially beneficial. The place is also
largely patronized by those who only
seek pleasure and recreation , its loca
tion making it particularly adapted for
this purpose. There are many roman
tic and beautiful spots and places of
interest in the vicinity and it would
be hard to find a section of country
containing so many beautiful drives.
The country is very hilly , but the
roads are all graveled and kept In
good condition. This is one of the
things that makes the place especially
attractive to those afflicted with rheu
matism , as driving is about the only
outdoor pleasure one crippled with
rheumatism can indulge in. Some of
the cures effected are really marvel
ous and many who have gone to the
Magno Mud Cure as a last resort have
returned home within a few weeks
filled with renewed health and
The accommodations , service , table
and attendance is all that can be de
sired and the rates very reasonable
indeed. The Springs is under the able-
management of Major H. L. Kramer
and a postal card inquiry addressed ,
to him will bring complete detailed
information as well as a copy ot iho
"Mudlavia Magazine , " a unique and
