New York, Sept. 22. A special to the
Tribune from Washington says:
Notes have been sent to thq PoweM
clearly defining the course thh Gov.

tlnn and guarantees for the future.
Most of the United States troops "ire to
be withdrawn from China immedi
ately. China will be compelled to pun
ish her own culprits.
It Is the belief of this Government
that there Is nothing to prevent the be
ginning of negotiations without fur
ther delay and that no occasion exists
for the protracted continuance of
troops on Chinese territory. Coopera
tion with the Powers along those lines
will be welcomed by this Government
which must, however, reserve the right
to act Independently on any proposition
which might lead to war with tho ChU
A memorandum will bo made public
by the State Department today after

demonstrate that the course of tho

tho coah workers' strike was begun
camo suddenly at Shenandoah this af
ternoon. A posse hurriedly gathered
by Sheriff Toole of Schuylkill county
to meet an emergency was forced to
fire Into a mob that was threatening
workmen on their way home under
cort. A man and a llttlo girl were In
stantly killed, and several others fell,
more or less wounded.
Sheriff Toolo lost no tlmo In calling
on the National Guard General to send
troops to aid him. After consultation
tho authorities decided to send troops
to tho turbulent region tonight . Shc.i
andoah's trouble was precipitated by
tho closing of six collllcrics there this
morning through the efforts of strike
lenders. More will close tomorrow ns

of tho Rending Company. This Is done
