Escape Avon Sensational.
PEKIN, China, Oct. 11. The latest
revolution in China, which had for
its object the punishment of pres
ident Yuan Shi Kal, because of his al
leged unconstitutional methods of gov
ernment, saw very little actual fight
ing. There was muea massacreing and
many executions, but she cases where
armed encounters amounted to any
thing more than skirmishes were rare.
On the contrary, the campaign was
conducted in the manner so often de
fended by the Chinese, that it is cheap
er and less bloody to buy over hostile
elements than to attempt to defeat
them with expensive ammunition at a
cost of many lives.
Military 2Ien Disappointed.
The military attaches who left the
legations here at the outbreak of the
rebellion, are now returning to Pekin.
They witnessed some interesting events
in tne Yangtze vaiiey, dul jearneu
nothing new or novel in the way of
warrare. The consensus oi xoreign
ODinion in Pekin is that the Chinese
army as a fighting machine is only a
little better than it was at the time of
the Japan-China war. and that it need
not be reckoned with seriously by any
potential invading force.
Mnny Are Slaughtered.
An appalling case of slaughter oc
curred at Sianfu, in Shensi province.
Here thousands of Manchus were
caught in a trap and slain in cold
blood or driven to suicide. Missiona
ries who gave refuge to a few of the
women who escaped say that these
refugees apologized for not dying with
their sisters, explain'ng that the wells
were so full of bodies that they rose
above the water.
There were also numerous decapita
tions and executions by shooting in
order to terrorize and thereby subdue
cities disloyal to whichever side was
uppermost In authority. But In actual
fighting there were In the anti-llanchu
revolt only two or three encounters
that conld be dignified by the term of
battle. Not more than a few thousand
troops on either side were engaged at
any one time. It took very little kill
ing to persuade the mercenary soldiers
to disperse or transfer their allegiince.
Some -of the troops that went over to
the rebels seem to have been pur
chased with actual cash or promises of
better conditions after Yuan Shih Kal
was turned out of the presidency. The
officers, of course, either sympathized
or had faith in the success of the en
terprise. Some, however, took the
southern side as a result of coercion, or
went over with the majoritv without
demur. Then, in turn, they went
promptly back to the northern side
when the pressure from the govern
ment forces seemed to be the most dan
gerous. One RnrrlHon TTnliTa Hnt

soldiers stationed there went over to
the rebellion and back again to- the
government. "Whichever side seemed to
have the upper hand for a dav would
swing the majority of officers" as well
as men over with it.
The Chinese have not yet begun to
take war seriously, or to appreciate
th.?' the man who is boueht off once
will have to be bought off again. The
true patriots who believed that they
had a just cause and were willing to
die for it do not seem to have been
many. Those who were killed were
mostly coolies who took a chance on
bettering their condition by Increased
watres or loot.
Though a number of leaders of the
revolt have taken refuge in Japan, and
although as an organization the move
ment to get rid of president Yuan has
collapsed, the struggle continues in
half a dozen provinces.
The fact that some of the armies em
ployed by the government are led by
generals whose records are those of
freebooters is arousing particular in

"William has issued the fourth volume
of the speeches he delivered during
the years 1906 to 1912. The volume has
32S pages crowded with addresses and
toasts on all kinds of subjects, sustain
ing his reputation as the greatest royal
speechmaker of the present era.
Among the most interesting and
characteristic passages in the new col
lection are the following:
"The world belongs to the living and
the living know best. I will tolerate
no pessimists; whoever is not ready to

Is An Optimist.
"I am an optimist through and
through. I want to progress. I should
be delighted If people only understood
what I am trying to do and would give
me their support, we are Douna to
consider every man honest until he has
proTed the contrary. This is the prin
ciple on which I have to do. The re
sults are occasionally bad, but one
mustn't be dissuaded by that.
"With a bit of healthy optimism and
more confident view of life, more pro
gress is made in one's life and one's
life work than if everything is viewed
with pessimistic eyes. The same ap
plies to statesmanship. What
good comes of discouragement? Far
better to work on with an eye to the
future. I work on undlscouraged, and
am confident that I am thereby making
progress. We (monarchs) are
always in a thankless position, since
no one credits us with any independ
ence. If I 'pull off ' comething suc

up to it?" and if I fail the word is:

"Confidence in God gives self-confidence,

you have set as your goal."

"Until wars cease our army will be j
the rock of bronze on which peace Is
founded. Our army is here to maintain
for us this peace and to assure to us
the position In the world which be
longs to us."
"My first and last thought is given
to my army and my navy."
"We recognize here (The Empress
Frederick House for Advanced Medical
Training) the far-seeing plans of an
all-embracing Providence, that Provi
dence without which, all your skill Is
nothing. For If It does not permit the
Investigator to establish the laws of

hand of the physician, the physician ia

"All truth is from God and his Spirit
rests with every work which springs
from truth and strives toward truth."
The following remarks on temper
ance are from an address delivered by
the emperor to the boys of the Fried
rich academy at Cassell, at which ho
was one time a student
"You are about to enter the univer
sity. I should like to give you some
advice which is not to be taken in a
joke but Is meant in bitter earnest.
Alcohol Is a danger for our people,
which, believe me. causes me grave
anxiety. I have been at the head of
the srovernment for 23 years, and I
know from the documents which pass ,
through my hands how many crimes
are caused by alcohol. Look at the
United States. The Americans are far
ahead of us in this respect. Great
things are accomplished in the univer
sities there, as we can convince our
selves here because so many students
from that side come to us.
"At the assemblies and at the great
academic celebrations there for exam
ple, at the investiture of a university
president, you will not see a drop of
wine on the table. It can be dispensed
with. When you enter the university,
harden your bodies by sport, by sword
fighting, for which I shall not censure
you; by rowing, but do not try to set
up a record in downing the greatest
possible quantity of spirituous drinks.
That is a custom which dates from an
other time. If you will work In this
direction In your fraternities and clubs,
I shall be grateful. We have today
other tasks and we must familiarize
ourselves wlh political economy and
finance. For it is now a question of
preserving for Germany its place In
the world, and particularly in the mar
kets o'f the world. For this we must
all stand firmly together."
Women's Place at Home.
"Here (at Koenigsberg) my grand
father placed the Prussian royal crown
upon his head of his own right, once
again distinctly proclaiming that It
had been granted to him by God's
grace alone and not by parliaments,
national assemblies, or the decisions of
the people, and that he regarded him
self as the chosen instrument of
Heaven, and as such would exercise
his duties as regent and ruler.
Our women should learn from queen
Lulse that the chief duty of the Ger
man woman does not lie in the field of
association and club lire, not in the
attainment of equal rights by which
they may work with men on equal
fcoting, but in the quiet work in the
home and in the family. Theyshould

all things, to obedience and respect for
their elders. They should make clear
to their children and their children's
children that their duty today 13 not to
live their lives at the cost of others,

Carmlcliacr Evidence Finished.
Yesterday Henry Carmichael, for
mer chief of police under the prohi
bition regime in Roswell, resumed the
stand as a star witness for the state
and for further cross-examination by
the defence. At the beginning of the
cross-examination he was taken up
on a line of contradictory statements
between his testimony at this trial
and a former trial and at the prelim
inary hearing before justice Bell at
Roswell. He flatly denied every al
leged statement propounded to him
and thus laid the ground, the defence
claims, for further impeachment.
On further cross-examination he de
nied that he drew his pistol for the
protection of his brother in the Lynch
residence at the time of the homicide,
as he testified Thursday, but drew it
solely for his own self defence after
marshal Woofter had been killed and
he had fled.
