Washington, Nov. 19. Minister Wn
has reoeived from Director-General
Sheng the following caolcgram, which
he communioated to Secretary Hay to
day: "An Imperial decree of November 13
deprives Prince Tuan and Prince Chang
of their ranks and offices, and orders
them to be imprisoned for life; Prince
Yih and secondary Prince Ining to be
imprisoned; secondary Prince Lin to
be deprived of his Tank; Duke tan aM
Ining Nien to be degraded In rank;
Kang Yi being dead, no penalty can be
imposed upon him; Chao Shu Cbiao to
be degraded, but retained in oflire, and
Yu Hsien to be exiled to the . iarthest
boundary." . '
Tho Chinese officials mentioned in
the deoree are among the highest in
China, and comprise most, if not all,
of those against whom the powers de
manded rigorous punishment. Prince
Tuan stands at the head of the anti
foreign and Boxer movement. Previous
edicts degraded hira and took away his
office and servants, but this judgment
of life imprisonment is the most severe
thus far given to any of the leaden
responsible for the trouble. From a
Chinese standpoint, it is an extreme
penalty to a prince of the blood, but
it remains to be seen whether the pow
ers will regard it as adequate to Prince
Tuan's offense. The others mentioned
were Tuan's active associates, and two
of them were specifically mentioned
for punishment, along with Tuan, in

Wise Course of the United State.
There is no hesitation in energetical
ly denying the European implication
that the United States government is
moved in its Chinese course by senti
mental and unbusinesslike considera
tions. On the contrary, it is pointed
ont that, while sentiment is on the
side of our government iu this matter,"
it is accompanied by the soundest busi
ness considerations. ine animating
purpose of the state department now is
to prevent the destruction of Chinese i
integrity upon pretexts; to maintain
the ooen door, for which our uovern-
mput long has contended, and to secure
indemnities for the past, and guaran
tees for the future.
A TERRIBLE PENALTY.
The Limn, Colo., Murderer Burned at
Limon, Colo., Nov. 19. Chained to
a railroad rail set firmly in the ground,
on the exact spot where his fiendish
crime was committed, Preston Porter,
Jr., or, as lie was familiarly known,
John Porter, this evening paid a terri
ble penalty for hie deed, it .... 6:23
o'clock when the father' of the murder
ed girl touched the match to the fuel
which had been piled around the ne
gro, and 20 minutes later a last con
vulsive shudder told that life was ex
tinct. What agony the doomed boy
suffered while the flames shriveled
up his fieph could only be guessed by
the terrible contortions of his face and
the cries he gave from time to time.
The executioners, who numbered
about 300 citizen, of Limon county,
bad not the least semblance of the or'
dinary mob. Their every act was de
liberate, and during all the prepara
tions, as well as throughout the suffer
ings of the negro, hardly an unneces
sary word was spoken. Grimly they
stuod in a circle about the fire until
the bodv was entirely consumed and
then quietly they took their way back
to Limon, from whence they departed
for their homes shortly afterward.

Serious Trouble Between Two Rival
Union at Tampa.
Tampa, Fla., Nov. 19. Rioting be
tween International and Resistiaucia
Unions of cigaVmakers began here to
day at the factory of Gonzales, Mora
& Co., of Tampa and Chicago. This
firm was working a full force of Resis
tiancia men, numbering about 500.
The Internationals marched to the fao
tory and demanded that these men
come out. This was relnsed and the
Internationals declared they would put
them out. The premises are encolsed,
and as an International man started to
enter the gate the Italian doorkeeper
fired upon him. This was quickly fol
lowed by an exchangeof several hun
dred shots. The front and side of the
buildings were riddled with bullets,
but no one has been reported injured.
Police officers dispersed the mob.
Every factory closed at noon for the
day. The mayor has sworn in 100 ex
tra policemen, and the sheriff has add
ed numerous deputies to his force. The
mayor issued a proclamation forbiddiug
torchlight processions and demonstra
tions of the rival trades unions, planned
The Internationale have about 800
members here, while the Resistianoia
members number over 3,000.
Since the rioting, the city has pre
sented A wildlv excited condition, and
the streets in the neighborhood of the
cigar factories have been thronged
with people. This, afternoon, a mass
meeting of business men passed a reso
lution authorizing the chairman to ap-
uoiut committees, which the .union.
did. These oommittees met and agreed
that all the men should go to work to
morrow morning. The Internationals
have acreed to this proposition praotl
callv. but the Resistianoia Union is
still confiirlerinc the matter. It is
thought it will be adooted before morn
ing. All the factories are now heavily
guarded by deputies.
MESSENGER BAXTER'S VICTI M.
Council Bluff Robber the Outcast of
Chicaso. Nov. 19. The bandit who
was killed October 8 last by Express
Messeneer Baxter, on the Kanas City,
St. Joseph & Coundl Bluffs railroad, is
said to have been the outcast of a
wealthy Massachusetts family. This
iuformation was given Lieutenant Ro
han, of detective headquarters, by a
"crook" whom the veteran detective
has known for years.
"I have no reason to doubt the man',
story," said the lieutenant, "and al
though he is a thief, I have confidence
in his word. A week or 10 days be
fore the train hold-up on the Kansas
City, St. Jsoeph & Council Bluffs rail
road, my informant met the man here
in Chicago. The plans were then be
ing made for the hold-up. 'Keep an
eye on the papers, said the man, 'and
you'll hear of something 'near Council
Bluffs.' My informant did not then
know that a train was to be held up,
but when he read of the attempted roD
bery and the killing of one of the ban
dits, be knew who it was that did the
job. Later he saw a picture and de
scription of the dead robber and recog
nized the man at once. He would not
tell tne the name of the thief who was
killed by the express messenger, as he
said it would only sadden a family who
have had their share of sorrow for the
acts of a wayward son."

to accomplish a compromise. The

their determination to demand the

illusory. Prince Tuan is merely ban

a life of honored retirement.
