LONDON , Oct. 16. Dispatches to the
Times from Tlen-Tsln , which will bo pub
llshcil tomorrow , pay that the Pel-Yang
tquadron has been able to' leave the dock
completely refitted with magazines filled
and otherwise fitted for active service.
An Imperial edict has been published ut
Peking assuming for the government full
responsibility for the protection of the for
eign residents and punishing certain culprits
shown to have taken part In the recent as
saults upon travelers. The edict assures
strangers that their persons and property
will bo protected , and Its wording especially
favors the missionaries. The whole tone of
the edict Is highly satisfactory.
The Chinese overtures for peace having
been rejected without a hearing , the war now
enters upon a chronic stage , demanding an
appeal to the latent forces of the empire
The latter are described as being1 quite great ,
but It Is added they require tlmo In order
to organize them. Tha Chinese government
Is prepared , though reluctant to do so , to
engage In a protracted conflict. The party
In power rcccgnlzes the urgency of radical
and fiscal reform. The question Is how long
will the natural cohesion bear the strain
of a great war ; the danger If , ihe corre
spondent adds , that a revolution may be
followed by prolonged anarchy.

imUSSELS , Oct. IB. In the elections for
Parliament the moderate liberals have lost
about thirty-one seats , mostly to the social
ists. The Catholics have lost seven seats ,
flva to the liberals and two to the socialists.
Owing to the number of reballoU necessary ,
It Is Impossible to predict the exact composi
tion ot the new Chamber. Several prominent
socialist leaders have been elected.
The socialists held a demonstration hero
today to celebrate their success la the elec
tions. Thousands ot members of the social
ist party paraded the principal streets of
ther city singing the "Marseillaise. " There
waa no disorder. At Mona , the capital of the
province of Ilalnhault , the socialists also
held n demonstration , which ended In a riot.
The mob attacked the building occupied by
the Catholic club and stoned It , breaking
most of the windows.
LONDON , Oct. IB , A dispatch to the
Times says the result of the elections is the
complete overthrow of the liberal party , save
In the capital. The first application of the
principle of universal suffrage has , there
fore , justified the forebodings of the doc
trinaires who foresaw the downfall of their
cause. What they failed to foresee was- the
Immense success of the socialists , with
whom the Catholics have now to reckon
12:30 : n. m. The old Chamber of Depu

who , In the election , have lost ten seats and

The socialists were not represented In the
last chamber. They have secured nineteen
seats. The old senate consisted of forty-

sympathetic speech presented "Tho AVnltz
King" with a handsome wreath , sent to the
latter by his admirers In the United States ,
The reception and presentations today look
place In llcrr Strauss' house In Sgelasz In
the Wclden. As the guests entered all the
tables , sideboards and other species of fur
niture were covered with costly presents
from all quarters of the globe. Herr Strauss
and his wife and his brother Edourd , greeted
the distinguished company.
Among those attending the reception were
Herr Johannes Urnliames. the composer ;
Uaron Hezechny , Hofrath von Doeszt , Hot-
rath Hadsllclc , Prof. Helmsbcrger and Prof.
Delnlnger and Rudolph Aronson of New

were accompanied by the conservatorlum or
Then followed the presentation of a little
sliver table ot choice design ornamented
with gold. After this a gold medal from the
members of the celebration committee whs
presented to Herr Strauss , Baron Dezechny
made a speech , In which he said :
"Though Strauss may belong to the world ,
he belongs to us before all. We Viennese
will not allow our Strauss to be taken from
us. May ho live long and yet make man
kind happy with his paradise melodies. "
At 10:45 : Burgomaster Gruble arrived from
the Rallies house. The crowd was then so
dense that he found It difficult to reach a
position beside the waltz king. After he
reached Herr Strauss , the burgomaster said :
"I am Instructed by the town council to
greet you In the names of your vaterstadt ,
to whose illustrious sons you belong. All
Vienna joins In these celebrations. All Vi
ennese without exception arc delighted that
you are able thus to participate. May you
bo spared lone to the joy and pride of your

Dr. Gustav Kohn , and a deputation of
the Wlenne Manncrgesang vereln.
Then Herr Strauss , his voice displaying
Intense emotion , said : "I am not a speaker

( Cries of "No. " ) Herr Strauss paused for a
moment and then continued , saying : "My
efforts have been feeble attempts tB Im
prove the gifts which I Inherited. I liavo
been extra fortunate , but I feel that I have
been too greatly honored. ( Cries of "No
No. " ) Indeed , you give me over-honor. "
Herr Strauss hesitated at this point ,
placed his hand upon his forehead and mut
tured , "Es 1st schon genug , " and then sa
down. Ills friends enthusiastically clam
ored for the privilege of shaking hands wltli
him. Among the congratulatory messages
that were received from all over the world and
from all sorts of people , was one from the
duke of Saie-Coburg-Gotha , himself a mU'
slclan , who said : "I also send hearty con

COLORADO SPRINGS , Oct. 15. James
Cannon and Thomas Short , Dull Hill miners
arrested yesterday on a charge of having
robbed a Victor gambling hall 'Saturday
morning , attempted to escape from the
officers who were bringing them to Jail las
night at Divide. Deputy Sterling shot both
killing Cannon and dancerously wounding
Short. It Is bPllev.d the men were Innocen
of the crime with which they were charged
as many miners will testify that both men
were attending1 a ball at the time when th
robbery was committed.
Cannon was about 28 years old. HI
mother lives In Dubuque , Iowa ,
The coroner's Jury exonerated Deputy
Sheriff 1C. C. Sterling , who shot and klllcJ
James Cannon. Sterling said his reason foi
removing the prisoners BO hastily from
Cripple Creek was that he feared nn attemp'
at rescue would bo made. His testlmon ;
concerning the shooting- was as follows
"Wo drove from Cripple Creek to Dlvld
and wore putting our horses In a liver ;
stable. My two guards brought In the gun
and leaned them up against the wall. Th' '
prisoners grabbed both guns and levelci
them at me. One said 'hold up your hands
and the other said 'hand over the keys o :
wo will fix you. '
"I advanced and put one of my arm
around each gun and called for the guards
Then one of the prisoners drew a revolve :
from my belt and hit me over the heai
with It. I saw they were getting the best < i
mo so I wrenched one of the guns from th
prisoners and said : 'I am shot , ' and manage
to get out T > f the door. Both the prisoners
ran ouf and whllo going took a shot at me
They ran to the railroad tracks , where then
was a largo pile ot ties , I shot three times
and told them to come to me. They eal"
they would give up , so I went to them. Cat
non was lying across the track dying ,
Short was badly wounded. "
Short , who was shot In the leg and I
weak from lo ? of blood , confirmed tin
deputy's testimony. Short Bays Cannon an
ho had nothing to do with the robbery an
they determined to try to get away rathe
than be locked up In the Colorado Springs
Jail , where many miners have been dctalnei
for iiionthn without trial.
Bull Hill miners are much excited eve :
the affair as they claim Cannon and Slier
had 'committed no crime.

of Illtlnmtrlj Capturing Them ,
WASHINGTON , Oct. .35. The Investlga-
on ot the Aqlila Creek express robbery has
cached a point where all'oluclals nro very
etlcent as to the measures taken for the
apturo of the robbers. Ji Q. A. Herring ,
ead of the Philadelphia division of the
dams Express company has been at the
( lice here receiving- reports that are coming
n from the detectives who have been , following
ho various clcus on which ( he company Is
working. Some criticism has been made
gainst the rewards offered ns being very
mall and the fact that Iho express com-
iany , which Is the heaviest loser , has offered
10 reward at all for the apprehension of
he robbers. This Is explained by the stote-
nent of the police authorities that the ox-
res s company doubtless has employed Pln-
erton detectives and that the Plnkcrtons
ipcrate as a firm ot attorneys , getting1 a
etalncr and regular fees for work done.
Yesterday several Washington detectives
'allowed up what they thought was R clew
They went down the rivet ; and examined a
! arge sail boat moored above Mount Vernon.
This boat had been used by a gang of men
who have been seen more or less In this vfcln-
ty , nnd some of whom , It U said , were con-
lcts. The apparent leader wag familiar
vlth the country where the- robbery occurred
nd also with the railroad. The boat found
vas practically abandoned ! but there , was
othtng about It that Indicated It had been
sed during the recent robbery , except that
here was a shot gun stowed away In it.
nspector Holllngbcrger , .who examined the
oat , eald that there is nothing in the clew
hat could bo pursued fur.tlicr. The men
who owned the boat have not been near It ,
'Ut ' have not left the country. It Is Lieuten-
nt Holllngbcrger's theory that this boat
vas merely to connect with another In the
Iver , which carried away Ihe train robbers.
It Is understood that Plnkerton men are
ivatchlntr both sides of the river and points
long Chesapeake bay where the , robbers
night land. Police authorities herd do not
ake any stock in the Alleged theory that
George Carter , a crook with a well known
lollco record , has had anything to do with
he robbery , because he Is so well known that
ralnmen , and nearly any other citizen living
.long the railroad , would have been almost
mre to have recognized him. It Is believed
he train robbers , after the- robbery ,
made efforts to get on the water and mingle
with the email craft in the" bay. and thus be
come practically lost to pursuit until the
iffalr quieted down. The Washington de-
ectlvcs express confidence .that ultimately
he men will be caught.
Nothing can bo learned here as to the
ixact amount of the loss. The oxpreis officials
say that from what can be learned that only

eports are received from , | he points where
money was sent by the car Which was robbed ,

express ) office here was * robbed of $14,000
early yesterday morning1. The money w
shipped from Portland , on- . thc rpK l
Oregon Hallway and Navigation1 'overland
train , which arrives here fit' 11 pm.For
some time' ' the banks .Ffere have been
oblljjed to obtain larfe Bums or silver from
Portland to pay the fishermen and farm
htrnds. The robbers evidently knew1 this
fact rind madf- their tilahs accordingly.
Agent F. N. Hill , after hauling the strong
box from the train to the otllce , went home
and did not return until fchorlly after mid
night. When he returned he found the
contents of the box jrone.'Wlth the excep
tion of $1,000. The authorities' were notlllcd
at once and the matter kept secret. De
tectives are here from Portland , watching
every avenue of escape. The most plaus
ible theory advanced is that the robbers
secreted themselves In the ; back room of
the express Olllce nnd waited for the njrent
to leave the building , as no- doors or locks
were forced open. They must have known
also that the express mescenKer , who sleeps
In the oflice , was awa"y attending to the
horse In n , stable near by.
The robbers , heliifr unable to carry ull
the sliver , left $1,00' ) of the coin , consigned

SPEAKS FOR DROVER'S WORK.
Hon. Dourko Cockran was Introduced by
Jovernor Flower. Tumultuous applause , last-
tig some time , followed the name of the gen-
leman , Mr. Cockran spoke as follows :
'Two years ago I had the honor to open the
campaign which resulted In the election of
drover Cleveland. Tonight I stand ready to
glvo an account of the manner In which
ho administration of Cleveland has dls-
harged Its stewardship. I bcllovo men can-
lot be deceived , that they can discern be-
weon right and wrong1 , between a system of
eglelatlon which Is for the good of the com
mon people and of that which degrades
hem. tt the bad times which have ovcr-
aken us bo the outcome of twenty-four years
> f republican misrule , I believe the people
vlll bo able to trace the evil to its source.
The democratic party has been bending for
wo years over the prostrate form of Amcr-
can Industry. My friend Reed will tell you
otherwise , but will people believe him or
hem ? No ; their common sense tells them
better. Wo are a nation with fields as fer-
llo and mines ns rich as they were thirty
'ears ago. yet our mills are stopped , our
actorles closed. Why these hard times ? If
hey come not from God. they came from
nan , Why , my. 'trlunds , this panic could not
) e caused by any legislation which could be
macteO In one or two years. No , the Icgls-
atlon which caused this was the outgrowth
ot twenty odd years' rule of tlio republican
PLEADS FOR ANOTHER CHANCE.
'Tlio commerce of the nation Is commerce
nf the Individual. For the years of Its rule
he republican party has advocated a system
ot protection-- 'Tilts" combined with a
debased . currency , is the powerful factor
which" has"T > ro'UBht us our closed 'factories ' ,
unemployed thousands , our hard times. If
any man can show mi how protection pro-
ects the working man , I will be the greatest
of protectionists , What wo want Is a supply
which will fill the demands which are com-
> allblo with the economical prosperity of
our government. So-called protection does
lot give this. Wo must have a free circula
tion of money. You have'notlceil that when
ever the slightest uncertainty has attached
tself to the currency of a country paralysis
resulted and when the banks and manufac-
orlca ot this country were struggling
: hrough the dark cloud that hung over them ,
, ho plundering republicans turned their
jacks to the treasury they had looted.
"Talk to mo of protection ! Protection
from what ? Protection from what ? What
country has our advantages , our people , our
resources ? What country Is Germany seeking
protection from ? What country does England
seek protection from , If not this giant of the
west ? The causes of the strikes which
liavc shaken this country liavo been attrib
uted to democratic rule. IJut what are the
real causes , If not the base system of tariff
taxation which the republicans originated' . '
Our country Is not developed to Its fullest ,
and never will be under such a protective
system of restriction. If the republicans
should win this fall , they will show a prefer
ence for psrsonal gratification rather than
national principle. They will show they
would rather knock a a man down than aet a
nation up. "
Congressman Cockran was loudly ap
plauded at every point , and especially at the
mention ot the names of Cleveland , Flower
and Hill. The applause was tumultuous when
the speaker appealed for religious toleration.
