Aside from the complications mentioned
In The Bee yesterday . regarding the ap
pointment of a Library board the discovery
waa made yesterday that there Is some
question of the validity of ordinance No.
1063, which waa passed by the council
on January T of the present year. This or
dinance created" a Library board and de.
fined to soma extent the ' dutlea of the
members. Mayor Kelly, when It came his
turn handed In a veto which waa promptly
turned down by the council and the or
dinance Is auppoaed to be a law.
Attorneys now say there Is a flaw which
may. invalidate the entire proceedings and
make It necessary to pass another ordi
nance creating a Library board. This Is
because the ordinance aays tbst appoint
ments must be made "at the next regular
meeting of the council." Such action was
sot takes, although the, mayor waa will
ing. The rscoros show that the appoint
ments wera made and confirmed, it was
at sn adjourned meeting and not t a
regular meeting. Judging from remarks
dropped by City Attorney Lambert It may
be possible that the ordinance will bava
to be Introduced again, passed, rt;nei! ami
published and the appointments made aft
erward. Bo tar no attempt has been made
to organise the Library board appointed
by the mayor.
Association Seeks Improvements.
Secretary Manh of the local Young Men'a
Christian asaoctatlon said yesterday that
he had been looking for larger quarters for
the association for some time and that of
fers had been made to owners of buildings
In the heart of the city. At present the
association has 366 members and the quar
ters on N street are entirely too small.
Negotiations have been pending for some
time for the erection of a building for the
gsootatloo, but these have fallen through
on account of the expense. Last year the
association here managed to get along on
about $3,900, but this year on account of
the Increase in membership it will be
necessary to raise $4,600 providing the Ini
proverueots contemplated are made.

Pekla, China, under date of February 19:
A seneatlon was caused In diplomatic
clrclea here today when It became known
that the United States, through Secretary
of State John Hay, bad sent a note to the
Russian and Chinese governments cloaely
along the lines of the Anglo-Japaneso
treaty of January JO. The note Is a dis
tinct warning to both China and Russia
that the United States will not permit the
Integrity of the empire to be molested In
favor of one nation to the detriment of
The note, which practically endorses ths
English treaty with Japan, says:
WASHINGTON. Feb. 1. An agreement

It constitutes a monoDolv which Is a

It restricts their rightful trade, exposing
It to being desrrlminated against. Inter

strongly tends to permanently Impairing

Furthermore, such a concession on
China's part would undoubtedly be fol
lowed by demands from other powers for
similar equal extensive advantages else
where In the Chinese empire, and the In
evitable result must be the comulete wreck
of the policy of absolute equality of treat
ment to an nations respecting traae, navi
gatlon and commerce within the emplre'i
On the other hand, the attainment by one
power of such exclusive powers for the
commercial organisations of Its nationality
conflicts with the assurances repeatedly
given to this government of the Imperial
Russian ministry of foreign affairs of the

Holds to Traditional Poller.
The Tribune prints the following special
It haa been understood here from the
outset that the terms of the British
Japanese agreement to preserve the Integ
rity of Japan were submitted In advance to
President Roosevelt and Secretary Hay and
approved by them. Following out the tra
ditional policy, however, of avoiding en
tangling pittances the United States post
ttvely declined to become a party to any
actual agreement concerning China.
When Lord Cranborne, In the British
Parliament laat week, declared that there
waa no doubt the British-Japanese agree
ment would command the full approval of
the United Statea, he spoke by authority.
The agreement between Great Britain
and Japan was dated January 30.'" There
la, therefore, deep significance that on Feb
ruary 1, two days sfter the treaty waa
signed, this country sent to Russia a note
practically adopting the principle of the
treaty as the policy of the United States.
The agreement between Great Britain and
Japan ia largely a military one, and pro
vide for a "Joint use of forces In case ot
Secretary Hay's letter, of course, could
not go to that extent, but the aubstance
of It, as telegraphed, leavea no doubt that
Russia haa been notified ot the fact in
strong diplomat io language that the moral
support of the United Statea Is with Great
Britain and Japan, and that tbla country
will resent any failure on the part of Rus
sta to redeem any pledge It made to Presl
dent McKlnley that the open door policy
should be applied to Manchuria.
Apparently Secretary Hay waited until
after the Brltiah-Japaneae treaty was made
public that the note might have all the
weight of an Indorsement of that treaty.
It is believed here also that Germany
wrote a similar note to Russia, and that.
while the emperor was unwilling to par
ticipate in an alliance with England and
Japan, he waa not averse to letting the
cxar know that Germany's commercial In
terests In the Orient would be Jealously
guarded. It la expected. In fact, that Ger
many and the United States will bs found
to be occupying almost the same position
and thus the result will be thst Russia and
Francs will be arrayed on one side and
Great Britain, Germany, Japan and the
United Btateu on the other.

AUDITORIUM WORK DELAYED
itrnrtnre Will Probnbly Sot Be
Ready for Christian Chareh
At the meetinc of the Auditorium com
pany yesterday afternoon the reoort of tha
building and grounds committee rejecting
an proposals for the construction of the
Auditorium was sustained.
It was stated that t-n this account, and
oa account of the difficulty In securing the
structural Iron, It would probably be Im
possible to have the building rea.ly for the
Christian chu-ch convention In October. The
action on the report of the bulldlna- snd
grounds committee was taken in executive
session, and the result slone snnounced.
On motion of Hsrry Weller Is waa nnanl
mously decided that no consideration wnnM
be given proposala for the purchase of the
proposes site oi tne building, as the mem
bers of ths directory believed that no
grouna equally satisfactory could be ae
cured. . -
Subscriptions to the amount of $1,105 were
reported from the different commit teea and
it was announced that the matter of sub
scriptions from the railroads would be
taaen up Inls week.
The promotion committee ststed that Mr
Ncttleton of Kansas City would arrive net
week to take up the work of that commit
tee for raising funds and that the details
of that work would then be announced.
The contract with the Royal Italian band
tor a aeriea or concerta next fall was re
turned signed by the manaear.
"The failure of the auditorium committee
to carry out ita agreement will have no ef
fect on the plana for the Christian conven
tion," aald Chairman Payne of the local
convention committee. "Of course, we are
disappointed, aa we had calculated much
on noiding tne convention In the new build

Hamilton aald that before night the tigers
were already about hunting, and that la
the abade of evening It waa dangerous to
ride oa a pony not because the tigers
wished to kill the rider, but becauss they
might mistake the pony and Ita rider for
aambar deer. He waa atalked like this
more than once. Often, when stalking
ssmbar deer and ibex by day, be aaw the
tigers doing the same, or after other prey.
'My brother Richard,' he writes, wss out
after a tiger which th, hlllmen reported
had killed a buffalo about an hour before.
He aaw the tiger on flrat getting to the
ground, and the tiger had aeen him. It
was lying out In the open watching the
buffalo, and shuffled Into the wood, and
would not come out again. . Next morning,
when we got to the ground, the tiger waa
moving from rock to rock, and bad dragged
ths body Into a nullah. We were
upon the point of starting home when we
observed a number of vultures eomlng
down to the carcass. The vultures began
to collect In large numbera on the opposite
hill. I soon counted fifty, but they would
not i near the buffalo. Then some crows,
boluer tnan the rest, flew down and made
a treat row over their meal. All of a
audden they all flew up and I made cer

fired, and there he was, shot right through

He had been brought down by the noise the
crows were making. Upon driving the
sholss (small woods on these hllla), tigers
were often put out. Sometimes they availed
themselves of the drive to secure food
for themselves. A wood waa being driven,
when a tremendoua grunting waa heard,
and out rushed aa old boar, bristling and

when a growl like thunder stopped him,
and a great tiger with one apring cleared
the nullah and alighted on- the back of the
old boar. Such a battle then took place
that, what with the growla of the tiger
and the squeals of the boar, one might
believe oneself In another world. I thought
of nothing but of bow to kill one or the
other, or both; ao, as tbey were rolling
down over and over, about fifty yarda from
me, on the open hillside, I let fly both
barrels. For a aecond or so the noise went

that the author has covered the whole sub

added that Prof. Sommervllle has a very
