ParK REBELLION IN CHINA Serious Uprising in Interior Provinces. i 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 themselves. 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 much curtailed. 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 Chaffee. 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 or complete. 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 conveyed. 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 Manchuria. "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 est exponent.,, "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 large expenditures. 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 Hotel Damaged. 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.

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.

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, 000. ( ELECTION IN MAINE. Ex-Governor Powers Chosen ns Boutelle's Successor.

Loss by Freshets in New England Will Not Be ns Great as Feared. BOSTON, April 8. The flood scare all over New England, due to rising waters from five days of heavy rains, has died out, and tonight the reports Indicated that a change for the better would come before daylight.
