Hankow Mission Destroyed.
HANKOW, China. Nov. . (Via Wo

of Hankow is on fire this morning and
It la feared that the NVesleyan mission
near the Han river In which are fifty
blind boys and 158 wounded persons who,
with th taff of the mission, make up a
total ci J persons, was destroyed.
)r. Booth, the head of the mission,
asked tho imperialists to grant an armis
tice of two- hours ta permit of removal
from the mission, but the firing ceased
for only a halt hour.
A Red Cross steamer whldh attempted
to rescue the Inmates of the mission was
driven back by the fire from the rebel
fort. One shell rtddlnLthe steamer's deck
bouse. f ,i ' . .
When ffte vessel was compelled to turn
back the mission was still standing, but
Its position was hopeless, the flames be
ing within 200 yards of it
The flames In the town were started by
the Imperialists, who threw lnflammuble
shells into the place. A strong wind
carried tho flames across the river to Han
Yang and a strip of that city, on tho
water front a mile long was deatroyod
and the fire is still turning there.
A few hundred rebels against whom the
imperialists are preparing to advance and
occupy the unburned parts of Hankow. . .
When the steamer left an artillery duel
was taking place betwean the batteries
of the imperialists, which were planted
back of the British concession, and the

eral rebel shells landed in the foreign
concessions, piercing the walls of houses.
The imperials occupy the district west

public on New Year's day and hold a re

By January 1 next the new building will

opinion that New Year's day Is the mobt
appropriate and opportune time.

OMAHA, SUNDAY MOKNIXU,
BOULEVARD JONDS URGED
Park Commissioners Out with State
meat to the Public
HOW MONEY IS TO BE SPENT
Contend that Without Additional
Funds Proposed City Itoad Sys
tem Cannot He Bettered
The Omaha Board cf Park commission
ers has Issued a statement in regard to
tho proposed park bonds In the amount
of $50,000 and urge the voters to endorse
the bonds at the polls next Tuesday. The
statement of tho hoard follows:
OMAHA, Neb.. Nov. 4.-To the Kdltor
of The Omaha Hee: The Board of Park
commissioners bus asked the voteis to
authorize an l.-sue of bonds to the amount
of $00,000 to be used for t'.te improvement
of tho boulevard system.
By way of explanation, the boulevards
of Omaha have no regular support outside
of the road fund which comes from Doug
las county. Since that road fund was
inaugurated In 1S3A, the average annual
sum from that source has been about
$20,000. It can readily be Been that with
tbls sum alone the maintenance of the
system would absorb , tho major portion,
while little would be left for macadamls
tn or otherwise improving old boulevards
or for grading pw ones. Ths charter pro
vides that bonds may be Issued for this
purpose, and bt this' means . macadamis
ing can be done to great advantage anC
new boulevards b graded and improved.
We wish to slats to ths public what is
contemplated In the way of . Improve
ments, but first want you to know what
sued in 1910, The necessary grading was
sued In 1 S0. The necessary graded was
completed and spans of macadam and
curbing wero put In where most needed.
It Is to complete these unpaved portions
that we are desirous of the bonds now
For the nine months ended the follow
ing has. been expended in grading, paving
and curbing: Florence boulevard. $11,-
(W.86; West Central boulevard, $11,M3.B8.;
South Central boiltevard, $12,6.12.20; North
west boulevard, $14,340.10; Southeast boul
From the bonds which it is urged that
Omaha authorize next Tuesday, It will be
possible to complete the macadam on
Florence boulevard, extend the paving on
Southeast boulevard toward Rlvervlew
park, and macadam south of Hanacom
park, where now there Is the oiled dirt
road; connect the paving on West Cen
tral boulevard and grade the new boule
vard from lJcmls to Fontanelle park.
Although the park board parses out Of
office with tho coming of tho new com
mission form of Rovernment next spring,
we all sco the necessity of this bond Issue
that tho work of perfecting Omaha's
boulevard system be carried toward com
pletion. Without tho bonds, the funds available
w(U scarcely maintain the boulevards In
a possablo condition, and with the exces
sive wear the maintenance of cinder and
oiled dirt roods Is very expensive and
unsatisfactory. For that reu.son It is de
sirable to put In permnnent paving, and
to do this It is impossible under our laws
wlUiout the bonds. Ho we ask the public
spirited citizens to take an interest In
this proposition of such largo Importance
to the entire city.

CHICAOO, Nov. 4.-The Illinois Manu
facturere' association today appointed a
committee of twelve, representing all
sections of the country, to draft a bill
for presentation to congress at its forth
coming session that will clearly lay down
a rule for the conduct of interstate busi
ness, the provisions of which will be
equally fair to the men who furnish the
capital, the consumer and the wage
The resolution adopted which provides
for the drafting of the propoaed bill
makes the following tclarutlons:
"There exists a necessity for ascertain
lng the true economic value of industria
combinations to determine whether the
Khtrmau. anti-trust la, enaated twenty
years ago, is still an economically wist
and (tatrsiniinllko statute and to decide
whether big' business Is (o continue and,
If so, tinder what rules and regulation!
It must be conducted." " '

The prcumblo to the resolution reads,
"After a score or more of years of In
activity, without premonitory notice, a
national policy has been Inaugurated In
dealings with corporations, which threat
ens tho foundation of our credit and pros

KLMWOOl), Neb., ' Nov. 4.. (Special.)
John 1 Kennedy, chairman at ths re
publican state committee, spoke to a
large and enthusiast la audience in Klni
wood tonight. He discussed In ' detail
the qualifications of tho candidates oh
the republican slate ticket and urged re
publicans to votd tho state und county
tickets sti sight.
Judges Ietton, Rose and llamer, h
sutd, wers all men of ability and large
experience on the brnoh Judges Letton
and Rose In the supreme court and Judge
llamer In the district court. The candi
dates for re-election as regents ot ths

Lyford, were commended to the cltlsens
of the stute ns men well qualified to
direct the affairs ot Nebraska's greatest
educational Institution; and Mr. Hall, for
railway commissioner, as a cspable man
wholly free from corporate control.
Mr. Kennedy commented on the fact
that four of ths six candidates wers
born and brought up on ths farm and
two of them in country towns.
Drynn's Idea Preposterous.
Referring to Mr: Bryan's .Invitation to
progressive republicans to vote ths dsino
cratlo ticket this full, Mr. Kennedy said.)
"Ths proposition Is preposterous. It Is
based upon a, falsa assumption. Mr.
Mryan assumes and States that ths pro
gressiva republicans are democrats it
heart This Is hot true, they tvers bofn
and bred republicans and they still be
llovo In republican principles. Repub
licans do not differ among . themselves
to any. great extent as to parly princi
ples, but they do dirfer as to their appllr
cation. These differences they will fight
out within party I'nes,. without the aid
or consent of any other party, and theaa
Issues will be settled to the satisfaction
of us all and to the benefit of the whole
"Contention within party lines does not
necessarily mean political death or decay.
It means life end strength and Intensity
of purpose. The republican party has
been blessed with strong men, men of
courage , and conviction, Differences of
opinion sVnong such men are common.
Tho republican party was born ot a great
conflict. It has been the storm center
of political discussion for half a century.
It has settled, and settled right,, tha
great quostions from time to time con
fronting the country. It will continue to
settle them; am' the so-called Insurgent
will stuy within the lines and contribute
their full share to the solution of thess
problems, with credit to themselves, and
to the honor and glory of ths nation.
Mryan Does Not Lend.
"Then again, what would It profit tha
progressive forces to follow Mr. Bryan
Into the democratic camp? Wise men
