Two Troublesome Klementa.
WASHINGTON, Sept. Jl.-When the dis
patch containing an account of the explo
sion of a bomb In a private car was shown
to Sir Chentu.ig Liang Cheng, the Chinese
minister here tonight, he expressed his
horror over the occurrence and said It was
doubly unfortunate, that is should occur
Just at a time when all things seemed
so auspicious for China and Its govern
ment. There Is doubt about the perpetra
tors, or rather to the party that Is re
sponsible for the deed. Then the minister
added: "There are two parties In China
the new reform party, which Is desirous
of having the people and government profit
by the adoption of whatever Is found good
In occidental civilisation and methods, and
the party that you call anarchists In thl
country. The leaders of the latter are
really devoid of any principles, whether
of government or anything else. Envy and
Jealousy are the mainspring that actuate
their every -mov. ' J-lk your president
killing anarchl'stsi'tTlsy-merely seek to de
stroy. The late action In regard to the
sending abroad of missionaries has espe
cially angered them.
CONGRESS OF ZEMSTVOISTS
Some Criticism Eapected of the Got.
eminent Rational Assembly
MOSCOW. Sept. 14. Owing to the fact
that there I no danger of police Inter
ference the congress of semstvolsts and
municipal representatives which opens here
tomorrow Is attracting less attention than
that given to previous congresses, but
f the. program for discussion Is extremely
Important, aa It embraces criticism of the
national assembly project, which had not
jbeen announced whin the previous con
gress met, and the formulation of a plan
of campaign for the coming elections.
Though the majority of the delegates are
apparently willing to accept the assembly
on the present lines as an earnest of
further 'reforms, a atrong minority will
present soma very aharp criticism of the
project. . The deputation from Kostroma,
for instance, has been instructed that the
assembly answer neither the wishes nor
the needs of th country and that the
elertons under the prevailing conditions,
Without freedom of assembly or the press,
are Impossible. A resolution will be pro
posed pointing out t the government the
Imperative necessity of granting liberty
of meeting and the press if the meeting Is
to b truly representative. The sentiments
of the people have been canvassed by the
delegates, who will present them to the
congress, which undoubtedly will act in
accordance with them.

FIND BAD AIRIN THE TUBES
London Hopes for Better Thin;
When Electrical Power I
LONDON., Sept. 24. (Special Cablegram
to The Bee.) London, like New York, has
been having Its troubles with the under
ground railway. The air has been so bad
that It waa almost sulphurous. - At last,
however, the long promised transformation
of the subway la In sight, and one by one
the new electric train have been displacing
the old steam engines, until now almost
the . whole surface ha been -electrified.
The new service Is not yet perfeot, how
ever, and many stoppages of the new elec
tric vestibule trains have oeourrrea, espe
cially in the vicinity of Black Friar sta
tion. , In aplte of occasional stops, however, the
new electric trains on the underground
in some of the sections of the city are
growing in popularity. Hundreds of passen
gers made a point of watting for the next
electric train, letting the Intermediate
steam train go by unheeded. One result,
therefore, Is that when London Is going
home In the evening the "electrics" are
overcrowded In a way to gladden the heart
of every shareholder. It Is now possible
to go from the extreme east of London
to the furtherest west by the district elec
trics. One set of trains runs from Ealing
to West Ham. another sel goes from Rich
mond to Whltechapel. The "electrics" go
much faster than the old steam trains, with
the result that when there is an "Inner
circle" In front the "electric" has to make
annoying waits In the stations In order to
allow the wheecy old steam trains to get
ahead. One long desired result of the
electrification Is already being achieved.
The atmosphere of the underground is now
often quite fresh.

AFTER SOME CONTRACTORS
Goi-eminent Charge Them with In

NEW YORK. Sept. 24,-After eight
months of careful preparation the United
State district attorney of this district
will tomorrow, according to reliable au
thority, cause the arreet of eleven heads
of manufacturing and contracting concerns
of this city on warrants charging them
with having conspired, through the me
dium of a employers' association, to vio
late the contract labor law by the Impor
tation of foreign workmen. The penalty
of conviction Is a fine of not less than
11. Ann nor more than trO.OPO. or imprison
ment for not more than two years.
It is understood that th Department of
Commerce and Labor I directing the
prosecution and ha through its own agents
assisted by operators of the secret serv
ice prepared the case again the ac
cused. This has Involved many months
of nvestlgatlon and also the keeping since
January Inst of four men, English tile
setters, at Ellis Island. It is upon the evi
dence of these four men, backed by an
array of corroborative depositions, that
the government chiefly relle.
The evidence In the case goes back to
the lockout by the Tile, Grate and Mantel
association, an employer' organisation, of
the men of the Mosaic and Encaustic Tile
Layers and Helpers' union of New York
and vicinity on August 8 of last year.
To make the lockout a, success, It Is
charged, the employers' association sent
one of its number to Engind and caused
advertisements to appear In paper in
England and Germany offering tile masons
15 per day for eight hours' labor In the
Fifty workmen. It Is alleged, were Im
ported to the United States at the In
stance of the eleven accused men and
were instructed to swea falsely when
questioned at Ellis Island by the Immi
gration officials as to their reason for
coming to America, and especially to swear
that they had as yet no employment in this
country. It is also said that they were
furnished with addresses of one of th
accused an J ordered to report to him.
Two weeks after the men were Imported
the lockout, not being a success. It Is al
leged, the accused caused the English
workmen to be discharged on the ground
that they were not familiar with Amer
ican tocla or the method of working In
this country and were therefore useless.
Some of these men got home as best they
could, but four of them carried their
grievances to agents of the Department of
Commerce and Labor and gave information I
on which an Investigation was based.
Since then they have been under deten
tion at the Immigrant station' at Ellis

One of the costumes in which the king
appeared on the promenade at Marienbad
has created a sensation. He wore a dark
blue short coat, white trousers, gray top
hat, brown shoes and colored shirt, with a
double collar. Before the day was out
there was a rush to the telegraph office
and King Edward had the slncerest flattery
paid him by orders being wired to the
Austrian capital for exact copies. One
Arm received seventeen and another ten
of these orders, with frantic Instructions
to rush them off to Marienbad as soon a
they were completed. Other orders were
received here In Paris equally large In
numbers and demanded with equal Im
petuosity, and if all who have ordered
them wore them on the dally promenade
there was a surprising uniformity about
male dress at this watering place. The
continental dandles did not wholly ap
prove of the costume, but King Edward
Is their law. Generally on the continent It
Is considered that brown shoes and double
collars are not quite good form except
when traveling. His majesty has now

The president holds the danger lightly, as
he holds all danger, and It la the belief In
Washington that he will not be deterred
from carrying out his promise to be the
guest of New Orleans at the first oppor
tunity. If he enters the fever stricken place, the
cttltens will give him a welcome which
probably will throw into the shadow all
welcomes which the president ever before
has received In any city on the continent.
The courage and the sentiment attaching
to the visit will conquer the hearts of the
New Orleans people.
On his southern trip the president will
break a precedent. He will pay every cent
of the railroad expenses out of his own
pocket. He has laid down a hard and fast
rule In thia matter, and it will be followed
to the last cent.

The president Is devoting considerable
time each day now to work on his an
nual message to congress. For some time
he has been assembling data for the mes
sage, but since the adjournment of the
peace conference he has been writing the
data Into deflnite form. The message will
not be completed until some time early
In November, because each member of

for discussion with reference to his de

net officials, which have not been com

time to the American people, will b dis
cussed by the president In his message.
They are the federal regulation end au
pervtslon of life Insurance, the relations
between this country and Venesueia and
America's Interest In the fiscal affairs of
the government of Santo Domingo. Other
Important subjects naturally will be con
sidered, among them the acandala dis
closed In the Departments of Agriculture
and the Interior; the work of th Depart
ment of Justice In the beef cases; the
regulation of freight rates; the progress
made in the construction of the Panama
canal and the conclusion of peace between
Russia and Japan.
Much of the matter for these discussions
President Roosevelt now has In hand,' and
the last days of his stay at Sagamore Hill
are being devoted to the preparation of
that part of his message which will deal
with them. Few visitors have been , re
ceived since the arfjournoieo xf -Uie peace
conference, , th. president . desiring to be
as tre as .possible from Interruption while

those of Immediate Importance is being'
