ST. PETERSBURG, Sept. 17. Important
development Regarding China's attitude
towards the , belligerents are anticipated
here In welj; Informed quarters. There are
rumors of closer relations between China
and Japan, of the possibility of the Japa
nese turning over Port Arthur, when cap

churia to the Chinese, etc. Although these
'reports are not confirmed they lead to
quite a general 'belief that some sort of
negotiations are going on behind the scenes
of which the outside world 'has little cog
nisance. Ths Ruas says It belNves the
Japanese successes are emboldening the
Chinese government more and more and
that they are prompting such diplomatic
steps as China never dreamed ' of before.

PAPILLION, Neb., Bept. 17. (Special.)
A few day ago an attempt was made to
burn Philip Zeeb'a new residence on his
farm south of Papllllon. On the night of
the fire Mr. Zeeb went to the well to get
a drink and noticed a bright light In the
new ' house. When he Investigated he
found the house afire, but extinguished the
flames before much damage was done.
The house had just been completed and
a lot of shavings were scattered about the
plaoe. Some one had taken these shavings
and, piling thenv In the cellar, saturated
them with kerosene and set them afire. A
Mr. Zeeb had a large sum of money In
the old house, which they occupy, he

Bo far as I can see, the nominees of the
two old parties are dtrondlng the same
line of battle, but Parker is the harder to

Task for Bryaa.
In April, 1904. Hon. W. J. Bryan hired a
hall In Chicago for the express purpose
of telling the American people what a
fraud the New York democratic platform
waa, and what "an artful dodger" was
Alton B. Parker.
If Mr. Bryan will now compare that
fraudulent New York platform with his
"artful dodger's" speech of acceptance,
and point out wherein the two essentially
differ, he will once more compel us all to
bow down In admiration to the Ingenuity
and resourcefulness of his remarkable in
On the question of Imperialism I defy
any man to point out, in plain English,
the exact difference, in principle or policy,
between Roosevelt and Parker.
Take the question of the tariff, the
trusts, government by injunction, trere Is
no difference which any mortal man can
boll down to a clenr-cut contract. Theo
dore speaks In one set of words and Alton
B. In another, hut each of them reaches
the same camping ground, and each tries
to spread his blanket on the same spot.
How about the labor question? is there
any difference between the two on that?
If so, state It, and state it plainly. In
Its nallnnal platform for 1S2 the demo
cratic party expressly pledged Itself against
child labor In factories. Fifteen years was
the age limit fixed. Yet all over tne soutn,
where the democratic Darty hi supreme.
child labor Is as fixed as African slavery
ever was. Children under 15, under 14, un
der 11, and sometimes under 10, slave their
little lives out amid pestilential vapors and
brutalizing conditions which are a shame
and a scandal to Georgia, South Carolina
and other democratic states. In aplte of
all the efforts of the labor leaders In those
states, they have been utterly unable to
get the democratic party to respect their
Elatform pledge In behalf of the helpless
oys and girls of the south.
Is Alton B. Pnrker In favor of that plank
In the democratic platform of 1P92? If so,
let him speak out. Until he declares him
self, and states wherein he differs from
Roosevelt on the labor question, the con
clusion is fair. Is Inevitable, that there Is
As to the monev Question, which the
democrats declared to be paramount, no
one will now contend that any praetlenl
difference exists betweei Roosevelt and
Parker and Money Ine.
But here Is a curious thins: Parker
telHrranha his unconditional surrendor to
the gold standard without saying whether
that standard Is right or wrong. He voted
twice for Bryan and free sliver, via ne De
lleve in Brvan and in free silver? He does
not say so. He voted that wny to be re
tilar did thlt favorite pupil of Dave. He
now leaves silver and comes over to gold.
Throughout this country we hear the
cry that reforms are needed, but they
must be sought for "within the democratic
party. To me, in tne nni or experience,
that kind of talk is utter folly. Is a man
never to learn anythinp from the past?
Can I hope to do Inside the democratic
party what Bryan so signally failed to do?
For eight years he exerted all of his mar
valnm mwAri to AcenmDltsh something in
side the democratic party. Back of him
were hundreds or strons; newspapers, ne
went Into the flpht followed by a powerful
nrnnkitlon: he secured more votes than
Grover Cleveland ever had. and yet be
cause he could not succeed within eljrht
yesrs the democratic pnrty repudiated him
and trampled his paltform under foot.
Thev got tired of being right: they got
tired of being- In the minority. Their hun
ger for office swallowed uo their love for
principle, and Bryan today la farther off
from the aeeompnsnment or any rem re
form than he was ten years ago. Why
did Brvan fall? Because he tried to ac
complish reform In a party organization
where there was no narmony or convic
tion. In such a party there could be no
unltv of action. He was handicapped from
the beginning bv such eastern democrnts
as Belmont. Hill and Cleveland and Car
lisle and Gorman, who are In principle
thoroughly rermhllcan. The democratic
house was divided against Itself. There
fore It fell.

Just why Chairman Taggart of the na

man of the Indiana state democratlo com
mittee. Some week ago, he said, he vis
ited that state and found that a consulta
tion between state leaders and the national
chairman was desirable. He promised them
to Induce Mr. Taggart to go to Indiana, and
on hi return to New York placed the mat
ter before the chairman In such a manner
that the visit was arranged. Appointments
were made at Indianapolis and French Lick
Spring and the date fixed. It waa not

waa to leave for the west that he was in
formed by Judge Parker by telephone that

Parker and suggested that It would be Im
practicable for him to cancel the arrange

assented to this, but saw no reason to can
cel hi own visit to New York.
On his next visit, It Is stated, Mr. Tag
