Washington, Aug. 4. The state depart
ment to-day received later Intelligence of
the killing ot missionaries In Kit Cheng,
China. Tho dispatch, like the one received
yesterday, was fiom Consul Gcneial Jeml
gan, and shows tha't no Americans suf
fered, but that the massacre ef Itritish sub

The consul general's dispatch Is as follows:
"Americans all safe. None hurt. Ton
Ililtlsh killed "
Although .Mr. Jernlenn does not use the
word "mlsslonuiles" In his dispatch, theie
is no doubt ft It by the olllclals of the state
depot tment that hu lefers to them, and
that his dlspati h is Intended as suppb ment
ary to that ot sestciday. Much gratifica
tion is expressed that the Atuuilcans have
not sutfeied, 113 the JJspateh appears to
leave no doubt on that point. The cable
gram was at oneo fot wanled to Secrctnrj
Oluey, at his summer home In Massachu

I p to this time, so far as ascertained, no
steps have been taken by the navy depart

the district where tho reported in.iss.icie

could reach the place quicker than minimis.

W. P. .Mm row, u native of Connecticut,
aged 31, and, ho snvs, recently a resident
ot Grass Valley, Cal. lie is still In Sin
Fr.1110l.sco under surveillance, so that the
federal authorities can get him it they
c.iro te do to.
Tho headqriaiters ot the filibustering ex
pedition has been at 711 Hush sheet, a
dingy, Hat tronted boat ding house. There
the agent of the conspirators has been re
celvlng day and night .1 motley crowd ot
men, who call in response to his cautiously
worded advertisements, published In this
city and elsewhere.
Morrow admitted last night, when he wns
foiced Into a corner and told that tho
game was up, that he had been engaging
mn to go to Hawaii and overturn tho re
public. He had told before to a reporter how the
thing wns to be done, and had stated
plainly who the men were- behind the
scenes. Among them ho enumerated one
ot the exlleel Ashfonls, and ho declared
that Itmlolph Spieekols was the man with
the nioiR'j who was backing the project.
Spreckels, he said had alieady concealed
a large number of rifles on the island ot
Maul, so that they would be ready when
tho lllibustcierw leMched tho islands.
The lirst local Intimation of the expe
dition appeared In an advertisement a few
days ago. Tho uitvertlsemcnt, .which led
to tho discovery of the filibustering
scheme, appealed in .1. morning paper of
Tuesday, July 3'1. It reiuls:
"Timbeimen and hunteis to escort pros
pecting party; good pay to good men;
state age; fate, Jill. Addiess box 1250, Hx
A Clnonicle reporter answered this ad
vertisement and in a few hours lecelved
the following tjpewritteu reply.
"We want men. for an expedition, ami
there will probably be some lighting In tho
Interest of I'O.OW people, with less than
G.Ouo to oppose them. Onlj a small or
ganized body to bent, not exeeeeling 700,

Tho W.OM people referred to comprise the
Itoyailsts and native population ot the
Hawaiian Islands. Tho t.OOi) are the peo
plo who are lojnl to tho Dolo republic.
The reporter then nt ranged an interview
with Mr. Morrow and culled upon him at
the boarding house on Hush sticet. The
expedition, was dtseusi-ed anil the reporter
evlnceil a deslie to Join it.
"Havo you any Idea of the goal of this
expedition?" ho ask.d.
ihe Clnonicle reporter said ho thought
it might be Salvador.
The liail Unfolded.
"That is a mistake," wns tho reply. "The
scheme is to restore the queen of the
Sandwich Islands to her throne. Wo will
enlist 20) to 4m) men fiom heie and take a
sailing vessel from this port within ten
ilass or two weeks. We havo been giving

Tho Dole government owns three-quarters

Yeager, alias .lp Wvatt. the most daring
desperado In tho Indian Terillory, und for
years the terror ot Oklahoma, was capt
ured to-day near Sheildan, O. T., nfter
ono ot the most desperate lights recorded
In the criminal hlstorv of Oklahoma. Six
month ngo olllcers ot Oklahoma stinted
out to break up this gang, which had been
mtiideiliig, stealing nnd committing every
crime in the calendar, his last feat being
the holdup ot the Itnek Island train near
Dover, the shooting ot Messenger Jones
and the robbery of the passengers. Prom
that tlmo olllcers pursued him mercilessly.
Ills three pals, Tulsa Jack, Hill Doolln and
lko lll.ick, were killed and the remainder
of his gang captured. He made a last stand
bcfoie the olllcers alone and single handed
and mule a most desperate tight for his
life. Yeager wns on Ills way from the
titass mountains. In the Indian reserva
tion, when the olllcers engaged him yes
terday and pursued him to W.iukomls,
where ho hid In a cornlleld. The olllceis
waited for him to come out. Klnally thirst
made him despei.ite nnd bo came nut of
tho corn ready to sell his life ns deaily as
possible. Ho emptied his Winchester at
the olllceis, who wero headed by Marshal
Smith, of South llnlcl. one of tho biuvest
and coolest men In Oklahoma Smith
aimed to crlpplo him and pretty soon
Yetiger's left nun fell by his side so that
he could not use his gun. He then dtew
his pistol and advanced step by step, but
the olllcers kept out of range ot his re
volver, whllo their Wlnehostets could
reach him CMslly. In a short time he fell
with a bullet In his hip, but notwithstand
ing this ho (hugged himself towuids the
olllcers, shooting ns lie went. Another
buljot caught him In the shoulder, thus
rendering both arms useless. Len nfter
the olllcers came up 011 him he fought with
his teeth and feet until dually over
poweied. Phislclnns havo dressed ills
wounds and say ho will live. He was re
moved to the Ciilleld county Jill to-night
for safe keeping. This breaks up the last
gang ot bandits In Oklahoma. It lias cost
the government a mint of mono), but
it has triumphed. One of Yeagei's recent
crimes Is tho killing of a Hupllst mlnlrter
because he protested w Inm the bandit took
from him the horse lie was riding.

Topeka, Kas., Aug. I -(Special ) After
libeling with tho matter of selecting a
superintendent for the Hutchinson leform
atory for three days, the board of muti
ng, ts adjourned to meet at Topeka on Mon
day morning. No ballot was taken upon
the seveial candidates. The endeavor of
the members was to see It they could not
agiee upon a man without a dissenting
voice, and this effort will be lencvved 111
Topeka on Monday. It Is understood that
Mi. O'Neal nnd Judge Peters could read
ily agreo upon a man, hut that Judge
Nil holson stood out for one of two men,
neither one of whom met with the support
of the other members of the board. Judge
Nicholson, hacked by the united popula
tion or Hutchinson, wanted to re-elect Capt.
iiin Hatch to the place, and for second
choice In, presented the name of ex-Governor
LewellliiL- ..... ...
It Is nndeistood about tho state house
that (lovornor Morrill Indoises the candl
iluy of Oia Moisc, ot Sumner county, for
the place, and It is altogether probable
that when the board meets at Topeka he
will be selected, even nt the siicrltlco of
a unanimous vote fiom the bo ird There
was some talk of going abroad for a super
intendent, but it was self-evident that no
man experienced and capable In the gov
