REBELLION IN CHINA
Serious Uprising in Interior
THE COURT GREATLY ALARMED
General Tang Fa Slan, Commander
of the Northern Armies, Is at
the Head of the Movement.
PBKIN, April 8. The rumors which
have been current during the past few
days of the outbreak of a rebellion, head
ed by General Tung Fu Slan, the ex-commander
of the Northern army, in the pro-i
vlnces of Mongolia and Shen-Sl, have
been absolutely authenticated.
Li Hung Chang and Prince Chlng have
received Information on the subject which,
though Indefinite, still proves that the
court Is seriously alarmed.
General Fu Slan was, according to last
accounts, about 150 miles from the court
-with 11,000 regular troops, all supposed to
be devoted to himself. The court has
about the some number of soldiers at Sln
gan Fu, but it is probable that the troops
of Tung Fu Slan are better drilled and
better armed. It Is believed that the
Mongolian rebellion was brought about
through the agents of Prince Tuan and
General Tung Fu Slan. 1.1 Hung Chang
thinks there are about 5,000 regular troops
In Mongolia, and inclines to the belief
that they have not joined In the rebellion.
He does not think the court is in any
danger, and thinks the object of Prince
Tuan (who was last reported at Nlng
Hsu Slan with 10,000 men prepared to
reslt arrest) and General Tung Fu Slab.
Is to create a diversion of interest In or
der to force unconditional protection of
Unofficial Chinamen of. Intelligence re
gard the rising as most unfortunate at the
present time to the interests of China,
and as of possibly meaning the use of
foreign troops to protect even the court
itself. The ministers of the powers do
not think that provided foreign Interests
do not suffer1, any present Interference is
likely. If the dynasty should be over
thrown, it would, to a certain extent, de
lay the peace negotiations, but they con
sider that a regime not bound by tradi
tions like those of the present court prob
ably would be much easier to deal with,
eventually, as the ceremonial could bo
Prince Chlng, who, as a relative, may
be considered to take the court view of
the situation, thinks the rebellion is a
storm In a teapot. He says the present
court Is loved and esteemed by nine
tenths of the population of China, and
that the same proportion of able-bodied
men In China would rise to protect the
existing dynasty. The Empress Dowager,
as the adviser of the Emperor, holds the
affections of the people, not dreamt of
and not understood by foreigners. Her
slightest wish Is the Emperor's law.
though he is by no means the figurehead
'Ste-fcwlgn -powers, frequently- Aippose.
The tlmperor recognizes her ability in
valuable aid and advice.
The remaining bodies of Americans were
shipped homeward this morning. They
now number fifty-four, and will leave on
board the transport Egbert tomorrow. The
Egbert will also take twenty-seven mili
tary prisoners, a number of sick men, the
discharged soldiers, the teamsters and
other civilians employed.
According to expert opinion, China
would be able "to pay from 20,000,000 to
30,000,000 without crippling her financial
resources, while the amounts which the
powers at present demand range from
80,000,000 to 100,000,000.
NOT EASILY SETTLED.
Indemnity Question Bound to Con
sume Much Time.
WASHINGTON, April -8. A brief dis
patch from General Chaffee was received
today, but beyond the record of a cas
ualty to a private soldier, its contents are
withheld from the public. It- is under
stood 'that the unpublished portion refers
to the disinclination of the foreign mili
tary commanders to reduce the number
of fortified posts and the strength of. the
garrisons between Pekln and the sea to
the proportions suggested by General
Mr. Rockhlll's advice to the State -Department
regarding the negotiations at
Pekln are more hopeful In tone than they
were a week ago, but It Is still apparent
that the subject of indemnity is bound to
consume much more time. This Is owing
to the original difficulty, namely, the ex
cessive demands of at least one of the
great European powers. A minimum,
claimed by one nation for Indemnity to
the amount of $70,000,000, with condltlpns
attached that might swell It to $100,000,000,
would, if allowed, leave all the other Row
ers in the aggregate about an equal' sum
for division between them. The Minis
ters have been assured by the best tech
nical authority that China's ability to jay
a money Indemnity is limited to the sum
of about $200,000,000 or $25O,OQ0,OQ0.
The Chinese Minister was an early call
er at the State Department today, to seek
Information as to t the report' based on
advices to the State Department, that
there had been an interruption of the
diplomatic Intercourse between Russia and
China. .Minister Wu had not been advised
of any such developments, and the Infor
mation before thjB State Department was
so contradIctory,that it did not permit a
clear explanation of the real state of af
fairs. The State Department maintains
its attitude of doubtful expectancy, and
is not yet prepared to admit that there
has been an Interruption of intercourse
between the two countries, elthpr limited
Aside from the telegraphic advlce3,
there are some attending: circumstances
which indicate that at least some strain
or partial interruption1 of Intercourse has
occurred. The fact developed in Wash
ington about a week ago, that Russia
had delivered to China what amounted to
an ultimatum on the signing of the Man
churia agreement. This followed the us
ual course of ultimatums and fixed a
definite limit of days in which China
could act. It also conveyed the clear In
timation that unfavorable action by China
would lead to a severance of diplomatic
relations between the two countries. The
limit of time fixed is believed to have
bpen one week, and to have expired
Wednesday. China did not sign within
the time limit, and the next day, 'Thurs
day, Russia addressed her note to the
powers which has been accepted as re
moving the pressure over the Manchuria
agreement. This at first seemed to be a
waiver of her prior Intimation of an Inter
ruption of diplomatic intercourse, and yet
there was no such explicit waiver, and
the latest advices received seem'to be dl
rectjy In line with the threat previously
In case there proves to be an Interrup
tion of the relations between Russia and
China, It Is not expected to disarrange the
negotiations between- the powers and
China, or between Russia and the powers.
It probably -would be confined to a ter
minatlonptaf the close entent long main
tained between Russia and China.
BLOW TO RUSSIAN PRESTIGE.
The More Severe Because Japan Had
the Leading Share.
LONDON, April 8. In a dispatch to the
Times from Pekln, dated Sunday, Dr.
Morrison comments upon the blow to Rus
sian prestige in China, resulting from the
check to Russia's ambitions ' regarding
"This blow Is all the more severe," he
says, "because Japan, whom the Rus
sians have affected to treat with the ut
most contempt, has had the largest share
in dealing it. There is little doubt that
Russia will renew the struggle In some
shape. It Is a remarkable outburst of
popular feeling which has thus enabled
China to withstand Russia. All the ap
peals were addressed to the Emperor. It
is, therefore, difficult to believe that the
Empress Dowager has not been affected
by the defeat of the policy, of which her
henchman, LI Hung Chang, is the strong
"The Emperor has summoned the presi
dent of the board! of revenue from Pekln
-to prepare fothe removal of the court.
Probably this f only means a removal to
Kalung, In the, Province of Ponan,(
which would bring the court Into closer
contact with the Yangtse Viceroys."
China an American Colony.
"VIENNA, April 9. The French econo
mist, Paul Leroy Beaulleu, In an article
In the Neues Wiener Tagesblatt, discus
sing which civilized nation is likely to ex
ploit China, says:
"It Is probable that the chief role will
fall to the United States, especially when
the Nicaragua Canal has been cut, China
will then, for economic purposes, become
an American' Colony. The Americans
know this, and their whole attitude dur
ing recent events has been marked by
finesse and foresight."
Japan is Relieved.
YOKOHAMA April 8. The news of
Russlas decision pot to press the Man
churia agreement was received here with
a feeling of relief. In anticipation of com
plications that might ensue had Russia
reached another conclusion, the govern
ment had resolved to postpone a number
of important state undertakings involving
A Boxer Appointment.
SHANGHAI, April 8. Yu Yin Lin, Gov
ernor of Hupel province, has been ap
pointed Governor Of Kwang SI province In
succession to Huang Husl Sen, who has
been ordered to resign. This is Interpreted
to Indicate that the reactionists of SIngan
Fu Intend to Introduce the Boxer move
ment in the Southern province.
FIRE AT OTTAWA.
Russell Theater Burned and Russell
OTTAWA, Ont., April 9. A fire which
started in the Russell House block at 1:45
this (Tuesday) morning, destroyed the
Russell Theater one of the finest play
houses In Cana'Ja, and damaged the Rus
sell House, one of the principal hotels In
this city, before the firemen succeeded in
gaining control ove,r the flames. The total
loss is estimated at $100,000. The fire
spread from thi, theater to tbg. hotel -with,
great rapidity, "and forced, so of the 200
guests to make their escape In their night
clothes. All the guests escaped,' however,
without Injury. The "Belle of New York"
Opera Company played In the theater last
night -and what scenery and costumes
had been left in the building were lost.
Besides the hotel and theater, the block
contained the office of the Free Press,
and another portion of It was " occupied
by offices. The loss on these is. small.
An Incendiary Fire.
4ST. LOUIS. April 8. It Is believed that
the fire yesterday which caused the de
struction of a grain elevator owned by
the St. Louis Elevator & Storage Com
pany, was of Incendiary origin. Several
boys whom the watchman just previous
to, his discovery of the re had ordered
from the premises are thought to be
guilty. The fire started in the oil room.

BALTIMORE, Md AprlKS. The whole

RIOT IN A.MEXICN TOWN.
Government Sends Troops to Qneel
" aY Small Insurrection.
LAREDO, k Tex., April 8. Reliable re
ports of a serious riot yesterday jit Lam
pasas, a station on the Mexican Central
Railroad, 70 miles distant, have reached
here. It appears that the Government of
Mexico had suspicions about a reported
revolutionary occurrence at th,at place,
and yesterday morning the military sta
tioned there arrested four citizens. When
they were taken to the station, en route
to Monterey, a mob, headed by Francisco
Maranjo, son of . the famous General
"Maranjo, appeared at the station. In the
excitement that followed one of the pris
oners escaped. When the train left the
leaders of the mob repaired to General
Maranjo's castle, where they are at pres
ent surrounded. As soon as the govern
ment heard of the disturbance 500 soldiers
from Monterey were dispatched to the
scene by special train.

THE PERRY NOT A SUCCESS.
San Francisco - Built Destroyer
Failed on Her-Speed Trial.
WASHINGTON, April 8. Secretary Long
was Informed today that the torpedo
boat destroyer Perry, built by the Union
Iron Works, of San Francisco, failed to
meet contract speed requirements on her
official trial. Under the contract the
vessel was required to develop a speed of
29 knots an hour, but the best she could
do on her trial run was 2S.2 knots an
hour. The failure to make the speed
required will not result in the rejection of
the ship, as the contract provides a pen
alty for deficiency In speed between 29
and 28 knots. The boat will, therefore,
be accepted, the price being $259,000, In
stead of the full contract price of $283,

Ohio Scientist's Scheme for Produc

SPRINGFIELD. O., April 8. Dr. C. W.
Woolrldge, a well-known Ohio scientist,
advocates the creation of a glacier at the
top of the San Bernardino Mountains that
would change the arid lands of Arizona
and Southern California into a garden.
He would have the standing army em
ployed, and suggests as one of Us tasks
that It erect an immense chimney on the
Pacific Coast, of such height that the
upper air could be carried to the top of
the San Bernardino Mountains, whereby
atmospheric action could be used at an
extremely low temperature, thus form
