Probable That Russian intlu

British Interests Suffer.
I'kkin, Sept 23. An Imperial edict
just issued definitely announces that
the emperor ot China has resigned his
power to the empress Dowager Km-pres-)
who has ordered the ministers to
deliver to her in future their official
It is dilllcull to ohtuiu reliable lufor
malion at the Pslace in regard to the
proceeding, i nt t lie recent reformatory
edicts probably caused the change.
While the emjieror was subservient
and a mere figurehead, the Dowager
permitted him to remain in ieace but
as noon ii h he attempted to act on his
own initiative his practical deposition
wits the result. His prim Ipal advisor,
Hang Yutnol, the Cantonese reformer,
lied in spite of the vigorous attempts
Hindu to arrest him and it In said lie is
now on his way to Shanghai.
In all probability Li Hung Chung
wilt be reinstuled In power -and Russian
influence wl!l increase. The hopes of
reform so ardently cherished by the
intelligent factious of the Chinese are
now Impossible of fulllliiicnt.
The suddenness of the coup Is said to
bo due to the desire of the Dowager
Km press to prevent the mission of the
Manjuta I to from being successful.
The Jauanesc statesman recently came
to Pekiu willi the object of trying to
bring about an alliance, ofT'enshc mid
defensive, between Japan and China.
The new order of things will undoubt

emperor is much disturbed at the reali

morning ordering t he palace guard to
patrol with extra care Guards within
the precincts ol the palace have been
strengthened. The European com

life is in danger and that he is no

The following tributes to the mem

contributed to the New York Yorld by
General Gordon, and by George Gary

RKVNOI.DH, (la , Sept. III.
The death of Miss Winnie Davis Is a
great shock and a profound gri: f to the
whole Southern people, and especially
to the ex-Confederates, who idolized
this gifted and accomplished daughter
ot their honored chieftain.
Few women in the world's history
have ever received such enthusiastic
ovatlans, such demonstrations of ad
miration and affection, as wen
accorded Miss Davis whenever she
graced their reunions with her presence
Yet iu (he in Ids t of these thrilling
scenes and triumphs, indeed under all
cond Ittoiis, she bore herself with such
gueenly grace and dignity, such
womanly modesty and gracioiisness, as
to increase, if possible, the tnl liusiastlc
admiration iutwhich she was univer
The sorrowing hearts of our people

To Hie Editor of Hie Witrht:
"Winnie" Davis is dead. May I
claim the privilege of laying a wreath
of erhapa superfluous words upon her
I knew. tier personally..! honored
her and admired her, and most loyally
loved her, as everylsnly did who liau
the privilege of knowing her.
She was au ideal American woman
largely learned, greatly accomplished
and wonderfully gifted, But it was
not all this that made the children
gather about her knees, their mothers
take her to their liosoms and their
fathers bow in reverence before her
exalted womanhood. It was something
greater than learning and lmmeasura
bly better than any cu.ture.
By all Southerners she was, idolized
as tha "Daughter of the Confederacy."
By all generous minds of whatever
section she wa loved and honored
as a perfect type of that noblest work
the American woman.
