New York, Nov. 14. The following ca
ble, via London, is from a special corre
spondent of the United Press, who was
sent to China with instrnctions to inves
tigate matters which have been causing
U'leasiness of late in diplomatic circles
throughout Europe and the United
S ates. It is dated Shanghai, Xov. 13,
The siiecial correspondent of . the United
I'fCf! is now in this city, and from a hiRh
authority luis been placed in possession of
most important facts. The United States
cruiser Charleston lias left these waters for
Honolulu, capital of the kingdom of Hawaii,
and it is asserted bcre in quarter likely to
know the trnth or falsity of a report of this
nature that thcr-ommauder of the 'hnrleston,
George C. Homey, has received instructions
from the United States government to seize
the Hawaiiau islands should certain event ual
Great Britain Hears the News.
The United I'ress correspondent has made
careful inquiry in regard to this ma;tor, and
while not able to state lhat it is a fact lhat tlie '
Charleston has started on the important mis- j
sion mentioned, he is able to say that beyond;
any doubt it is fully believed in oftirial circles i
here that the United states cruiser has lieeu
ordered, should certain events occur, to seize ;
the Hawaiian islands. In addition, tho United I
Press rorresiionilent has reason to believe that
these facts have been cabled to the British for
eign otlice, and there has been, iu consequence,
an exchange of d-patcbes between the British
admiralty and t tie admiral in command of tlio
Uritiih fleet in Chinese waters.
'L 1 Under the Wing of Cnrle Sam.
tfistensibly, the mission of tho Charleston is
ply to protect American interests there and
afford a refuse for American citizens on
islands should tho political upheaval ex-
ted there take the form which so many
le anticipate it may take. The American
;iy here and others also seem to be in
ty sympathy with the United States in
matter. It is recognized by all, except
haps the representatives of two powers,
X the Hawaiian islands are, naturally, uu-
tbe wine, if Jiot under the protection, of
United States, and that the United States
is the country to police if not annex, that some
what disturbed couutry under "certain cir
cumstances."1 Not a Bold Piratical Swoop.
Of course, there is the possibility that the
ecents apprehended in the Hawaiian Islands
will not turn out to be so serious as some peo
ple in the United States fear they may be, but
the United States government, apparently has
resolved, to take the most energetic measures
should it feel thoroughly justified in so doing.
As the United Ires8 correspondent under
stands it, the Charleston's mission b-uot a bold
and uncalled for swooping dow n upon and
seizure of the Hawaiian kingdom; it is simply
the taking of a firm, diplomatic step in what
are considered by the United States povern
jfrut, to be the best interests of the I'uilcd

Tatters Calming Down, bat Warships
Necessary Perfidious Britain.
ttegaraing tne ccinese disturbances so
ar as the United Press correspondent
an judge, matters seem to be calming
wn considerably, owing in a great
easure to the concentration in Chinese
aters of so many foreign warships and
to the plain talk indulged in by the rep
resentatives of the powers. China, it
seems, will do little or nothing to protect
pr to do common justice to foreigners so
long as the diplomats alone take a hand
in the game, but when the foreign minis
ters are backed up by powerful warships,
and plenty of them, their voices seem to
have a persuasive sweetness which was
altogether lacking when the warships
were absent or few in number here
abouts. May Be Only a Treacherous Calm.
The hatred expressed for the missionar
ies, however, does not abate in its bitter
ness. In fact, beneath the present state
of treacherous calni there seems to be a
general feeling of disquiet. The prov
ince of Hunan (or Yun-Xan), the most
southwesterly of the Chinese province,
is seething with uue.isiness in a manner
most ominous and strongly indicative of
the intrigues ot Russian agents. British
agents also are -said to be at work there,
though the average British official would
turn pale with horror and 6Ugiist were it
even suggested to bim that such a thing
British Agents Stirring l"p Trouble.
The United Press correspondent, how
ever, is in a position to state that though
the province of Hunan may be at present
tte stamping ground of a number of Rus
sian agents whose duty it may lie to
foster disturbances by all the means in
their power, the presence ot British
agents there is well-known to the Chinese
government and that no kiud of a denial
will convince the Chinese government
that this is not the ease. England is as
deep as Russia in this business, if not
deeper, and a great deal of the growth of
the British empire is due to these in
trigues. Ah Ha Wants to Try His Guns.
Prince Li, the Chinese premier, has
been playing a sharp game between Rus
sia and England, but Lord Salis
bury's Inaction has foiled the
wily statesman's plans to get
the two nations at each other's throats.
From present indications trouble is inev
itable between China and tne powers. It
is becoming obvious that the Chinese are
hostile to all foreigners and rtiat the im
perial government will not be sorry to see
hostilities begin, with a view of demon
strating the strength of the empire and
tne efficiency ot the newly organized army
China to Be Sliced Cp.
Sooner or later the Russian bear and the
British lion, to say nothing of the French
eagle, will tear large slices oat of Chines
territory, in order to appease, momentar
ily, their hunger for Asiatic territory.

nature for the foreign reHnts of China,

THE LATEST PHENOMENAL CASE.
A Girl Who Is Possessed with an Appe
tite Her Novel Impression.
Xew Haven", Xov. M. Miss Julia Hep
burn, who lives near Xorth Plaius, Conn.,
has become possessed with a mania for
eating. She has to bj feu at short inter
vals, aud anything that is edible she de
vours ravenously. Local physicians
thought that she was suffering from a
nervous affection of the stomach, and they
suggested that she be forced to take food
until she became nauseated. This was
tried, but she ate all that was placed lie
fore her without showing signs of dis
tress. A physician from Hartford put
the patient on a diet of three meals a day.
She became delirious, and had to be fed
until her voracious appetite was satisfied.
Thinks It Is a Tramp's Cans.
Miss Hepburn is of a religious turn ot
mind and impressionable. She believes
that she is suffering from a curse. Some
six weeks ago she turned a tramp away
from her father's house one morning, re
fusing to give him food. The tramp told
her that God would curse her. These
words so preyed upon the young woman's
mind that she grew moody, and in a very
short time the abnormal appetite came
upoa her. She bas full control of her
senses and is able to perform household

annual banquet last night. Governor
Horace Boies was urged to attend by a
committee sent here for that purpose. He
was unable to do so, but sent a letter in
