Tokio. Sepl. 20. (For steamship China)
Ugly rumors are circulated In Cliiiia as to
tlie probability of fresh anti foreign O'Jt
rages. From Hankow it la runrtcd that
a day "had more than once boon fixed for
attacking the foreigners, but as that kind
of thine had lie-en going on for Ihe past
three vejrs no r.inicular attention was
paid to it until news c.mic that a dispatch
had come rroin l'ckin ordering a reduction
of 20 per cent in the pay of the Wuchang
garrison and tlie discharge oru cou-idi nihle
number of soldiers for lliosake or economy.'
The probable effect of tlne measures
was to induce the removal on September 12
of all rorcnrii ladles aud children, as well
as or the girls in the American mission
boarding bouse from Wuchang lo the con
Whether owing to these precautions or
lo some other cause, the threatened trouble
did not break out. lint it is easy to conceit e
that tlie adoption or such measures may
attract Hie ve-ry peril they are intended to
uvert. since they servo to indicate the most
vulnerable point on the foreign side.
l'i:AR IN KIUKIANG.
In Khiklnng also a recline of uneasiness
lireails. There Is talk of the iiiaugurii
tiou of cxtc usl e reforms under Instruct ions
from the central cot eminent, involving the
dismissal of numerous, useless officials and
the disbanding of seven tenths of the sol
diers, that proved themselves such a worth
less rabble during the rect lit war.
U these stuis be taken, the situation,
already critical for foreigner-, will be
complicated by tlie presence or a multitude
or needy inalennents read) for any form
of outrage or pillage.
In Weucliow things are not dissimilar.

The commissioners reached Kuchcnc on
the lTth of August, and by the 20th Ihe
prefect had received telegraphic instruc

exactly as the consuls wished.

Sence ill the presence or the foreign com
missioners thev had already lieen etues
tioned by the Chinese magistrate.
What this preliminary auestloulng In
volved must be left to the imagination.
Something of the pains that the prisoners
had to undergo may be gathered from the
remarkable readiness of their admissions
efore the foreign commissioners, but
only In two cases are we told that the
men bore plain marks of tlie devices em
ploved to extort confession.
Hut happilr. after the examination of
about a score of prisoners, evidince hid
lieen colli-cted sufficient lo cltnrly indi
cate the pirvjns chiefly concerned in the
outrage. Then at the instance of the
consuls tlie prefect telegraphed for the
viceroy's permission, and Obtained it. to

It was conclusively proved that not more
than a hundred vegetarians were present
at the murdering and burning. Some 200
set out from the nssociition's fpsine'es
In the hill, but a majority of the number
dwindled away en route.
Very few or thun seem lo have known
exactly what was in contemplation. They
went along in blind obedience to their lead
ers, but were rcadv enough to stall and
plunder when the occasion presented its ir.
Indeed, the general programme or the
vegetarians in the Kuchcng district Is
violence. Ihe principal of their procedure
Is to lake the place of the duly constituted
authorities and to substitute a reign of
force for Ihe control of legal tribunals.
Borne or the prisoners showed muili re
luctance to speak, but were ultimately
Induced to do so by the application or
torture or by tlie Incriminating evidence
or their associates. Others were quite
ready lo acknowledge the part taken by
One. Iwth bcrore and after his arrest,
spoke frankly or having killed "a small
foreigner." Another dc-siribed readily
how he had helped to butiher Mr. Stewart
and stablied a lady in the back. A third
recounted how tlie children were 'stab
bed Just outside the house, where they
were gathering flowers, and how lie In
fluted the first wound on Mrs. Stewart by
stabbing her in the lower Jaw. and a fourth
said: t'l was with the body or men. about
twenty, that surrounded the lower house,
wherethe ladies were.
"They offered us money and said Ihcv
would go to the city church with us If
we would let them, anil give thun their
umbrellas This Ihcv said to Tai Ntt Long.
We killed thcra after the flag came with
the command, carried bv Chlo Hi. One
little man irotn hungaug and a tail man
began, and then we all stabbed them. I
(tabbed a tall ladv."
In this way the particulars of the ter
rible tragedy were elicited. The chief
Instigator of the outrage seems to have
been a man known as "Long Finger
Nails." a professional fortune teller.
Ills motives are a mvsterv. but the evi
dence shows that he went among the
vegetarians telling their fortunes, and
that he made a point of warning them
that thev must choose between killing the
foreigners and being done to death bv them.

be nredieled. It will express the opinion
of the residents of tlie Capital City. It will
show tlie euuiitry what the citizens of tho
District of Columbia can do when they
are aroused. For this reason tlie call was
made purely local.
In the list of signers appear only the
names of the e ltizens of the District. All
others will lie invited to attend the meet
ing; Ihey can take part, but the-sentiment
voiced the night of tlie mass meeting will
lie the expression of sympathy Waliing

citizens have had. and Washington will
speak out for Cuba.
DIPLOMATS AT WORK.
The publication of the call has brought
out some curious facts. Among them is
a reported diplomatic secret. It is to the
effect that Spain Las been sounding cer
tain countries, having a grievance against
the United Slates. looKing lowani u
invitation to unite In a demonstration
against her. This, bpam thinks, would
have the efrect of frlght'-nlnc this countrr
from taking any part looking towatd a
recognition of the struggling Cubans.
The powers named as having lieen ap
proached are Great Britain. Italy, and
Mexico. Of course, it is understood that
these approaches have been made In the
most unofrici.il way. The representatives
of Spain have simply been soundiiig tho
representatives of thce other powers.
The-se powers have grievances against
this government and would, like to air
them. The Spaniards hold that this ia
their best chance.

or business with several or tlie lt-cations.
