After a search lusting eight years,
which the aid of the United
States government was enlisted, the
body of Prince Ylian Chow Cum, a
ider in the Boxer uprising, was
located in the pauper section of a
cemetery at Alamosa, Colorado.
The body, which was exhumed was
clothed in mandarin robes with
yellow jacket and peacock feathered
cup and inclosed in a splendid cof
fin, emblazoned with golden Chinese
ragons. It was started on its re
turn to China, where it will be
interred in the vaults of the rulers
of the Ming dynasty.
Favorite of former Emperor
Kwang Su, whose cousin he was, as
well as of Empress Tsai Ann, the
emperor's mother, Prince Ylian was
a power, especially in the Pei Ho
valley, until his connection with
the Boxers became known'. The
yellow cord, which notifies the re
cipient that his suicide is expected,
was handed to Prince Ylian bv a
messenger from the palace. This
was said to have been decided upon
to pacify Germany for the assassin
ation of Baron von Ketteler. Ger
