proirsylcated officially today that riot

be dealt with summarily. The revo
lutionary army Is strunply entrenched
and It la the policy of the heads of tho
movement to tslve protection to for
eigners of all nationalities, hoplnT
thereby to demonstrate that they have
the situation In hand nnd to win sym
pathy from abroad. It Is no secret
here that the dynasty. Is regarded with
more or less contempt by the repre
sentatives of other governments, and
the Consuls are continuinK their pol
icy of insisting upon stru t neutrality.
The rebels are under conitnurid of
Oeneral 1.1 Tuan Hong, who Is an ac
complished military strategist, and are
otherwise well officered, despite re
ports to the contrary' circulated by
the government. Keports were re

years old .he waa taken by his mother
to Honolulu, where he went to school
and college. He returned to Hongkong
later, and for a time was a student in
yueen's College. After a second visit
to Honolulu he took up the study of
medicine in Canton and Hongkong, di
viding his time between those cities
for five years. He began 20 years ago
to plot to overthrow he Muncku dy
nasty, and every recent uprising has
been blamed upon him 'by the Chinese
government. In IMS Dr. Sun founded
in San Francisco the Chinese Popular
Society, a revolutionary organization,
which has branches in other American
cities and wherever Chinese live
lr. Sun was kidnaped in London 13
years ago and held a prisoner In the
Chinese embassy, but the British gov
ernment compelled the embassy to re
lease "jim. He escaped death in Canton
province afterward by proving British
citizenship. He was expelled from
Toklo five years aKO at the request of
the Chinese government, and then went
to Singapore, which has since been the
headquarters of the revolutionary
movement. ' Dr. Sun visited San Fran
