London, Aug-. 23. A special despatch
received here from Shanghai says that
many Chinese converts were butchered
when the American mission outside
Foo Chow was attacked and the chapel
and school were wrecked by an infur
iated mob as exclusively cabled to the
Associated Press from Hong Kong ear
ly during the morning of August 22.
Commander Newell, of the United
States cruiser Dtroit has gone to
Cheng Tu to consult with Mr. J. C.
Hixson, United States counsel at Foo
Chow about the landing of marines
for his protection and for the protect
ion of the members of the commission
investigating the massacres, as the lat
ter are practically prisoners.
The despatch adds that 'the Chinese
bfiicials are jubilant a tthe defeat of
the efforts of the American and Brit
ish officials to obtain an open inquiry
into the massaci It is also said that
the delay is giving the Chinese time
to prepare a defense for the prisoners.
Washington, Aug. 23. It is said that
Ku Cheng is meant whever Cheng Tu
Is used in the London dispatch as
Cheng Tu is the scene of the June riots
End 1,400 miles from Foo Chow. Na
val officials though without informa
t:on are inclined to discredit the in
formation in the dispatch. Acting
Secretary Adoo said it was observed
tnat dispatches of this character came
by way "of London, while another high
naval officer said that there was evi
dent intention on the part of Great
Britain in the whole Ku Cheng affair
to get the United States government
to pull the chestnuts out of the fire, and
liomted to the fact that there did not
Fftm to be any anxiety on the part of
Great Britain to land troops or to be in
undue haste to force an explanation.
The navy department thought that if
rvmniander Newell had gone on any
6uch mission the department would
iiue been notified. It was also said
that marines had scarcely ever landed
at the request of any consul, especially
when there is a minister in the coun
try. However, should there be trouble
of the-krnd indicated the United States
has -a strong force in Asiatic waters.
Se-en ships are available, some or
them good cruisers, our fleet including
the Baltimore (flagship) the Charles
ton, Detroit, Yorktown, Machias, Mono
cracy and Concord. The last named
four are not very formidable, though
good fighting ships. The new cruiser,
Olympia, will leave for the Asiatic sta
tion in a very short time as she is now
being coaled at San Francisco.
The presumption among the officials
at the Chinese legation is that the pro
tection to the commission referred to
is from mob violence. The officials,
however, express the opinion that am
ple protection will be afforded by the
local authorities without the interven
tion of other governments. Besides
it is not believed at the legation that
the central government at Pekin would
permit the landing of marines at the
place where the Investigation is to be
conducted. There is, however, no news
at the legation in regard to the state
ments in the dispatch and in fact there
has been no information verifying the
report of the appointment of a com
mittee of investigation.

our course is clear and Europe should
be made acquainted with how the
United States understands their inter

we want. Let us sacrifice right rather
than the honor of our country. Let
us reach the most extreme disaster if
such is out lot; but let us not neither
be deceived or degraded by any weak

that the government has decided to
dispatch 100,000 men and all the ships
necessary to blockade the Island of
Cuba and crush the rebellion during
the first month of 1S96. General Sll

the party. When seen by a represen
tative of the Associated Press Cardinal
"My visit to Rome has no special
singnificance, as it-is customary for us
to visit the Holy Father every eiglt or
ten years, or perhaps, oftener. I had
several audiences with Pope Leo. The
last one on June 29. The Holy Father,
although a little more stooped, looked
better and stronger than when I saw
him last eabout eight years ago. His
faculties are unimpaired and he is"
wonderfully bright. He takes a deep
interest in America and frequently ex
pressed his admiration for our politi
cal institutions. He sent no special
message to America through me nor
presented any reason for doing so at
the present time."
The cardinal said that he enjoyed his
trip very much and that he had felt
his health greatly benefitted by it. He
left Rome on July 2 and traveled by
slow stages through the Tyrol, Bava

TOO VILE TO TELL
MOST HOBELBLE OHAPTEE IN WEST
EEU HISTOBY WBITTEN.
Details are Given of the Avrful Work of
Buf on Hack Gang- In the Indian Terri
tory Their Capture by the Most Curious
Mob that Ever Got Together on this
Continent Men Beg with Tears in Their
Eyes for the Privilege of Lynching the
BrjitcA Authorities Befose to GItc
Githrie, O. T., Aug. 23. Special.)
Particulars have reached here of the
capture of the Rufus Buck gang and
the attempt to lynch them. The story
includes one of the most horrible, if
not the most horrible chapter yet writ
ten of western brigandage. This gang
outraged four women, the whole gang
taking part in the outrage of three of
these. Miss Ayers, one of these, was
outraged by the entire gang of brutes
and is dead. The same treatment was
given an Indian girl near Sapula, and
she is dead, and Mrs. Hassen near
Okmulgee died also. Mrs. Wilson, an
other woman, who was outraged by
only one of the gang, will recover.
Some Creek lighthorsemen and a
posse of citizens surprised Rufus Buck
and his outlaw band near Arkecko
chee Thursday morning, and after an
exchange of shots which only resulted
in the killing of three horses and the
wounding of one bandit, the gang sur
rendered to the brave men who form
ed an impassable cordon around them.
For several days hundreds of whites,
Indians and negroes had scoured the
country in small bands determined to
run down the inhuman wretches, and
it was the general determination to
lynch them when caught. After the
deputy marshals and lighthorsemen
had taken the prisoners in custody.
the crowd clamored to get them in its
clutches, men begging the officers with
tears in their eyes, to let them have
them without a fight, which would cost
the lives of good men. The guards
were determined to hand their prison
ers over to the law and proceeded to
Okmulgee, the Creek capital, followed
by a great mob.
A gentleman in from Okmulgee says
that it was a sight to see the fury of
the crowd at Okmulgee when the pris
oners came in. Hundreds of people
wanted them, wanted to hang them,
and were shooting their guns in the
air at once. The prisoners were scar
ed almost senseless. The mob, shoot
ing and yelling, made a break to get
them. The officers ran their team to
an open gate in the wall of the capital
ard. The prisoners were tied hand
and foot and the officers in their hury
threw them out of the wagon. They
were too badly scared to see the open
gate and tried to climb the wall to es
cape the crowd. They were rushed in
to the capital building and saved. The
crowd was from all quarters, of all
colors, of all kinds and continued to
come in during the day. It looked like
Falstaff's army. They were riding
mules, horses and ponies, with sad
dle, bare-back, blind bridles and every
kind of quick make-shift. They bore
rifles, shotguns, pistols and clubs. It
was an ominous crowd and had blood
in its eye. The mob sentiment subsid
ed somewhat the first day, but the sec
ond people came in from the country
and quietly planned to mob them Fri
day night, but the officers got onto it
and slipped the prisoners away. It
was a determined crowd of fighter?,
who wanted them the second dsy, and
the citizens of the town think that they
would have taken them Friday night
even if a fight had occurred.
From Okmulgee the prisoners were
hurried to Muskogee. The crowd gath
ered on Main street in expectancy, and
directly it began to move toward the
court house. It was a harmless look
ing crowd not a gun or rope was In
sight. After a bit of speech making
from the court house steps, it march
ed back to Main street and then to
ward the jail. Just before reaching
the jail it was met by Marshal Ruther
ford and Chief Deputy McDonald. The
mob was halted and then it was the
government's time at speech making.
Mr. McDonald made an earnest talk
which made the mob waver. Marshal
Rutherford followed In an appeal to
them to abide the law, and ordered
them to disperse. He said that the
jail was stationed with guards and the
prisoners could not be had without a
fight. He appreciated the indignation
and the feeling which impelled the
people to arise against the prisoners,
but the majesty of the law must be
preserved at any cost, and the life of
one of the citizens or one of the guards
was worth the whole coop of prison
ers. When he referred to Judge Par
ker as a certain punisher of crime tne
crowd cheered. Before he had finished
speaking the crowd began to break and
drift away, and directly all were mov
ing back toward town.

Purcell. I. T Aug. 23 A large gang

tween the outlaws and marshals took

INDIANS OUT FOR REVENGE.
Indications Being that They will have
Help in Getting it.
Denver. Aug. 23. A special to the
News from Lander. Wyo., says: The
Indian bureau and. the war depart
ment have been discussing a plan to
pacify the Indians. Aent Teter of
'the Fort Hall reservation reports that
he is helpless in face of the Indians
absolutely disregaling all orders to
remain within the borders of the reser
vation. It is proposed now to give
the Indians a b',g hunt during Septem
ber in Jackson's Hole and have the
troops there to protect them from the
whites. This is to be done Tegardless
of Wyoming law.
If Governor Richards follows out
his idea of enforcing the laws equally
against the whites and LuSians, there
will be a conflict of authority that will
finally brine about a. decision Is. the '
courts as to the rights of the Indians
under the treaty of 1S68.
The Indian trouble remains as it was
when General Coppinger arrived in
Jackson's Hole. This week a dozen
gentlemen from here went .fishing In
the tributaries (of the Gros Ventre.
They were surprised by a party of Ban
nock Indians who scrutinized each
man carefully but finally said "youre
not the men we want. We are looking
for the white men who killed the In
dian." Further talk brought out the
fact that they were determined to
kill every man in Jackson's Hole who
had anything to do with arresting,
killing or wounding Indians. The
Lemhis, the 'Utes, the Shoshones and
the Arapahoes and army officers to a
large extent are in sympathy with the
Indians in this matter, and many of
them admit that certain white men
in Jackson's Hole are marked by the
Indians for destruction.

Cripple Creek, Colo., Aug. 23. There
is nothing to indicate any dlviation of
the program announced to occur at
Gillette tomorrow, and apparently the
bull fight will be held, despite the
threats and protestations of the Hu
mane society. The projectors of the
fiesta exhibit great confidence that the
governor will in no way Interfere and
they even claim that he may accept
their invitation to be present. The
governor has been at Colorado Springs
today where lie went to participate in
the Flower Day festivities. He is said
to have agreed to the bull fight pro

At Gillette eveything is in readiness
for three days' carnival of sport. The
vast arena seats 15,000 people, Is com

city of refreshment booths and side
shows. The animals that are to take
part in the fight are on the ground, but
are kept in seclusion, and it is not
known whether they are genuine Mexi

Austin, Texas. Aug. 23. Governor
Culberson today made public some
correspondence between himself and
Chief Cabell of Dallas in regard to the
Corbett-Fitzsimmons fight. The cor
respondence was opened by Governor
Culberson interrogating the chief, as
to whether he Intended to abide by the
decision of Attorney General Crane
holding the prize fight law valid and
as to whether it was his intention to
exercise all the power vested in him to
prevent the fight
he did not ask for the opinion, hi.t
he is willing, and will abide by it. That
should a writ be placed in his hands
by the county attorney he will certain
ly serve it or in case no writ is issued
and he is left to face the matter alone
he will unhesitatingly discharge his
duties. He cites, however, that the
criminal statute defining prize fight
ing makes it a misdemeanor and not
a felony and aalts the governor under
such circumstances would he be Justi
fied in using force as may be necessa
ry even if it required the shooting
down of citizens and would the govern
or advise such proceedings.
In reply the governor says that while
it is true that a prize fight at Dallas
is not advertised to take place until
October, the propriety of the public
officers of the state taking action is ob
vious. It is proper that they should
give notice at once of the firm purpose
to enforce the law, that none may be
deceived. The constitution, which is
