In which he said the decapitation took
place ttits morning.
Minister Dcnby reports that the commls

CTIINESE BULKH'S EDICT.
Orders Til General to Hunt Down
Lenders In tlic Riot.
Tokio, Japan, Aug. 27. The Emperor of
China has Issued the following edict with
reference to the recent nnn Christian out
breaks In that empire:
"Since the opening of International com
merce with western countries, foreigners
bate always resided In the inland illstrlcts
at iieaeo and harmony with their native
neJghl)Qrs,-nnd we. In our imperial love for
both native and foreigner alike, have time
and again commanded our high provincial
author!ti"s to pay extra heed constantly to
protect the latter from harm.
"Judge of our extreme indignation, then,
upon hearing recently first of the riots in
the capital of SzeCluen, where chapels
have been destroyed and burned down by
the rlotern, thereby fanning the flames of
destruction far ami wide. Inasmuch that a
number of sub prefectures and districts
simultaneously followed In the footsteps of
Cheng Tu, and now to receive news from
Fu Kien, reporting that cMl characters have
murdered and wounded a v cry large num
ber of foreigners at Ku Tien, going 60 far
In their ruthless ferocity as to murder een
women and children.
"With reference, to the Szc-Chuen riots,
a number of rioters bae already been ar
rested and will'undergo trial, but the chiefs
and beads of the Tu Klcn murders are still
at large, ard we command Fien Pao-Chuan
and Cliing Yu, Tartar generalsatFoo Chow,
to set to work without delaj at the head of
the military and district officials and
pcedily nrrest these wicked characters,
nor shall any be allowed to escape the
meshes of the law.
"Indeed, it is the manifest duty of the
local mandarins throughout the empire to
be always on the alert and prevent such
wort'ilcss characters from manufacturing
scurrilious tales and exciting the popu
lace: they should cruMi all Incipient ris
ings at the slightest sign hat sort of
frivolity and Indifference to duty Is. this,
then, that has brought about all these
recent serious outrages? We would also
command the various Tartar generals,
vicerojsand govern irs to impress "upon all
tbelr subordinates the necessity of grant
ing protection to all In the chapels.in the
"They are also to issue proclamations ex
horting the people to abstain from listen
ing to scurrilious tales which excite un

If there be any who shall dare to raise
disturbances In the future, they shall be
at once pun.shcd with the utmost severity

ficials as may use subterfuge and craft
to avoid their duties, they are to be most
severely pnnlshed, and no leniency shall
be exercised In their cases. Let these
commands be made known to all within this
Little value Is attached by foreigners to
this edict. It Is now well understood that
the orders of the Emperor of China have
Tlrtunlly no force outside tho walisof Pe
kln. It. is gererally believed that the ac
tion of the British government has fallen
far short of requirements of the occasion.
Particulars of the attack on the Catholio
mission at Wa-Nal, a. village near the East

DDRRANT BREAKING DOWN
Alleged Murderer of Blanohe La
mont Has Lost His Bravado.
Testimony of Mr. Crosett and Mrs.
Vogel Appears to Furnish tbe Last
'Wanting Circumstantial Link.
San Francisco, Sept 18 Durrani's mar
velous nerve has forsaken him. For the
first time since he was hurried from Wal
nut Creek, accused of a crime which over
whelmed the community, he has shown
some sign that be realizes the danger
of his own position and feels something
or tbe horror ot the charge against him.
The tremendous strain under which be
labored on Monday was more than be could
bear. His face betrayed something of bis
emotion In the courtroom, but it was not

until that moment understood the full
significance of the testimo.iy which bad
been given by Mrs. Eliznl-.th Crosett.
The scene In the sheriffs office was
the last In a series which will not be so. mi
There was slim hope for the prosecu
tion until Mrs. Elizabeth Crosett came
forward, connected all the links and gave
tremendous support to all those who swore
they had seen Durrani on that day. What
ever might be said of the others, sl.e
touid not be mistaken.
Durrant left the room Willi no air of uir
coucern. When his mother reached him in
the sheriffs office downstairs he tried to
bide bis emotion, but could not. The
deputies saw it and realized Its import.
Durrantsaw nothing to laugh at then. '
Ills attorneys haesettlIuimnMrs?Mar
Vogel as the first to attack and charge with
telling a falsehood. Tbey will try and
prove that she perjured herself on the
witness stand. Tbe school girls cannot be
attacked in that way.
Attorney Deuprey declared yesterday that
Mrs. Vogel did not tell tho truth, and he
claims that he will submit proof to support
bis charge. His offer in that regard is a
very peculiar one, as be thinks he has
fallen on a nest of perjurers, but the facts
do not by any means support bini In bis
When the trial Is resumed George B.
King will be placed on tbe witness stand.
In the theory of the prosecution. King will
give a climax to the whole case. Durrant's

church with tbe murdered girl. ""
At terKIng has retired, Adolpb Oppenheim
will be called to tell bis story of Durrant's
offer. W. J. Phillips will be the next wit
ness, and the prosecution wit! bare little
more to offer In Its direct case. Most of
tbe other witnesses will be held for rebuttal.
Tbeopening statement forthedefense will
be made by Attorney Deuprey, who Is now
ready to deliver It. The defense expects to
finish with Its witnesses within a week's
time. Tbero Is some bope, therefore, that
the great trial will end within three weeks.

Warner Miller Is Proud of Ills Llttio
Exploit Lt'iow Soys the Law Must
Be Enforced, Hutu Gernian-Amorl-en
n Believes It Will Ilo Unpopular
and Will Hurt the Party.
Saratoga, Sept. 18. Tho main topic of
conversation among Republicans this
morning was the Warner Miller plank In
faor of enforcing the Sunday laws.
Some of the up-country Republicans arc
enthusiastic oer the matter, but there
are olliers from the cities of the State
who believe with Mr. Piatt that the safer
plan would ha c been to remain silent on
f the excise matter.
Mr. Laulerback, who made the fight be
fore tho committee on resolutions, for a
liberal excise plank, and did not succeed,
believes that tbe Miller plank will do much
harm In New York, Buffalo and other
Wiles. Ills objection and that of others
is not to the wording of the plank, but to
the use that It will be put to by Democrats.
They do not want to be placed on the de
fenshe, and nssued during tlie campaign
of faoring tlie c-!d blue laws.
LEXOW ON LAW.
Chairman Lcxow was asked this morn
ing for his opinion on the work of thecon
ventiqnas a whole and on the Miller plank
'n particular. He said:
"The convention's work is. most satis
factory. It has named a good ticket
and one that will win. As for tbe re-solution
Introduced by Mr. Miller, I think
that Republicans should a;a j s be on the
side of law and order. Tlie laws should
be enforced. If, as Is held by some, there
lught to be more liberality in cities as to
Sunday observance and liquor selling, tbe
laws should be changed."
Lieut Gov. Saxton said: "I am very
glad the1 convention adopted Mr. Miller's
plank. The Republican party cannot af
ford to shirk the responsibility of forcing
tbe excise Issue or any other Issue. Our
action will be Indorsed by the people, and
we will win again in November."
Warner Miller said: "I do not see how
any one can claim that tbe Republican
parly Is a prohibition party from the reso
lution which I Introduced. I believe that.
tbe vast majority of the people of this State
stand by law and order and believe in tbe
proper observance of the Sabbath. Our
friends all over tbe State expected a decla
ration from us on this subject, and I do not
believe that we could afford to be silent."
Mr. Frederick W. Holls, a" well known
German Republican, was asked wbat would
be the effect of tbe plank upon tbe German
and Uberal'Amerlcan vote. He said:
"Tbe resolution is so meaningless tbat
it is difficult to consider It as a serious
piece of work on the part of serious men.
It cannot mean tbat tbe Republican party
favors tbe maintenance of tbe present Sun
day law, for that was passed by a Tammany
legislature for blackmailing purposes.
Hence I take it to mean tbat our convention
has indorsed tbe Sunday law In the ab
stract, in the interests of labor and moral
ity." John F. MDbnlland remained here until
noon. He was one of tbe first to arrive and
about tbe last to leave. He went away ap
parently as nappy as If tbe convention bad
adopted bis excise plank, bis committee

fight of the antl-Platt crowd has resulted

Cleveland touched a gulden button at Buz

tbe Cotton States and International Ex

life. Cannon blazed and tbundered, 60,000
people cheered, a thousand flags fluttered
from the tops of tbe many buildings and
the great Southern Industrial exposition
was officially opened.
Atlanta Is alive with people. Strangers
have been coming in for two weeks to be
present at to-day's exercises, but they
were as nothing In numbers compared to
tbe thousands who arrived last night and
this morning. The city Is profusely deco
rated with bunting and the national colors.
The crowds are good natured, and, as In
old carnival times, everything goes.
The list of distinguished personages and
historic organizations here Is a long one.
New l'ork, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts,
Connecticut, Vermont, New Jersey, Mary

California, Texas, Alabama, Florida, South

The parade of civic and military bodies
which acted as an escort to tbe officials
of the exposition and its guests to-day wed
tbe most imposing procession ever seen
In the South.
FAM0BS OLD FLAG.
Several thousand Grand Army members
came down from Cbickamauga, and were
conspicuous on .the streets. Tbey received
marked fatten t ions from tbe citizens. One
of these, Lieut. Llnberry, brought down
"from Massachusetts the Identical flag
which waved from Kenesaw to Allatoona
tbe famous signal which led P. P. Bliss
to write the famous song, "Hold the Fort,
for I am Coming."
Thelleutenant went upon Kenesaw moun
tain to-day, and About the time tbe cxp
sltlon was formally pronounced open,
waved Uic signal which he received thirty
one years ago from Gen. Sherman and
waved to Gen. Corse.
Much has been made ot the Washington
Artillery, of New Orleans, and all along
tbe route of tlie parade to-day tbe artillery
When tlie parade reached the exposition
grounds tbe official party proceeded to
tbe auditorium. Judge Emory Specr, of
the United States court at Macon, deliv
ered the address of the day.
After an earnest and eloquent prayer
by Bishop Klnlock Nelson, or the Episcopal
diocese, of Georgia, Bon. Charles A. Col
lier, president and director general, dc
llered the opening address.
When be concluded bis speech, he called
Gray Gables, which bad direct wire com
munication by tbe Western Union line,
with the auditorium. Tbls was the signal
that all was ready.
President Cleveland touched the electric
button and the electric spark started the
iwruleriius engines in machinery hall. Then
a pandemonium of noUe followed, and tbe
exposition was formally opened.
Tbe orator of the day, Hon Emory Speer,
then delitercd a brilliant and impassioned
address. "The substantial magnificence
and beneficent huma-ies ot tbls vast
undertaking," be said, "was possible
inly to the resolution and activities of a
free people. Creations such as this are
enlivened by tbe benevolence ot great and
generous men. They are encouraged by

FOB FREE CUBA.
"From the Gulf of Mexico," continued
the orator, "to the Straits of Magellan, our
sister republics proudly come, bringing
with willing bands of the bounty tbe
God of Nature has bestowed upon them."
He enumerated them: The Argentine Re
public, "whose gallant people have twice
captured invading British armies larger
than those surrendered by Burgoyne at
Saratoga and Corn wants at TorKtown,"
Venezuela, Salvador and Mexico In turn
were pralcd, "and Cuba," ran tbe orator,
"wbom we would gladly welcome, but who
Is not here."
"May I not now paraphrase the language
of Daniel Webster, spoken In tbe House

when they were driving the unspeakable

the wide melancholy waste where Cuba
once was, I should reflect wltb the most
heartfelt satisfaction that I have asked,
in tbe name of seventy millions of free
men, tbat you would give them at least
the,cheerlng of one friendly voice."
THE NEGRO PROBLEM.
He alluded to grave reasons which di
verted the army of civilization which here
tofore rolled westward from the soil 'of
the Southern States, "Slavery was here
and tbe tolling masses from other lands
could not compete with the slaves." When
slavery was abolished the "negro prob

'multitudes as to tbe effect of .the presence
of tbe negro upon tbe life and advancement
ot the Southern people was ever present,

"There never was tbe slightest danger,
of continued negro control in the local Af
fairs of -a Southern State," and on this top
