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. allovi:h to m:k waller.

Castine, had refus i I to salute the French flag at Tamat . ,"e, Madagascar, are confined in a dis I atch to the navy department from the commander himself. His course is ap proved by the department, Tamatave rot being a French port. Frenchmen are said to be incensed at Commander Price's action. United States Consul Weller, who is at Tamatave is only acting consul in one sense, as the United States has nev er applied for nor received an exequa tur for him In advising the comman der of thx Castine not to recognize or salute the French Hag the department resumes that Mr. Weller has taken the I'ght course and knows what he is auout, and will act upon that assump tion until something to the eontrary is learned.

If the French c Titrol is not recognized In the island and in tact should be denied by the United States government it would define clearly the issue and make the cla m of Waller indisputable from an American point of view but it is said that such a position by the L'nited States is not necessary to the estab lishment of the Walltr claim if Mr. Waller received his concession from a d facto government.

In regard to the news that Estrada Palma and other Cuban insurgents leaders are allowed to hold meetings in Forester hall "with the flag of the Cuban republic flying alongside the stars and stripes, cal uminating Spain, her army and Cuba, callectlng money and recruiting men for the rebellion," as announced in a dispatch received here, the Iniparcial says: "The government of America and its representative mar think as they like of the mode of understanding the nue trality to which they are bound, but outside of them, there is no man who supports fair play who will not cen sure the conduct of the government of the United States. If they continue to authorize such means in wljich Spain and her army are insulted and funds collected for expeditions against us. i our course is clear and Europe should be made acquainted with how the United States understands their inter national obligations. Deeds and not words, acts and not promises, are what 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 ness." The semi-official El National says 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 cedo has arrived at Corruna. He says that it is only a question of time and weather when Campos will "sweep the rebels into the sea." NOW OLD JOE PUTS IX.

When seen by a represen tative of the Associated Press Cardinal Gibbons said: "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 ria, Wurtemburg, Baden, Holland, Bel gium, France, England and Ireland. When asked as to the standing of the Catholic church in France, the cordin al said: "While I was there, there was some friction between the Catholic clergy and the civil officials owing to the levy of an extra tax on ecclesiasti cal institutions."

The Times Berlin correspondent says: "The supporters of the gold currency are jubilant at the statement made by Hon. A. J- Balfour first lord of the treasury in the house of commons to the effect that the English government would take no steps looking toward an international bimetallic conference. The National Zeitung. the correspondent adds, says that he has burst the soap bubble j which tne German bimetallists blew from the votes in the reichstag, and the Prussian diet.

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 Them Up. 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. TIGHT WITH Tilt. CHRISTIANS.

T Aug. 23 A large gang of murderers and outlaws are now surrounded by a posse of United States marshals six mils west of Purcell on the border between Oklahoma and the Indian terrotory An encounter be tween the outlaws and marshals took place at daylight this fornlng in which Bob Christian and Deputy United States Marshal Hocker of Purcell were both shot.

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.

Every Police Precaution will be Taken in Soifon Conclave Week. Boston, Aug. 23. Every possible pre caution to protect visitors and citizens at the coming conclave week of Knights Templar is being taken by the authorities here. The detective force has been augmnted by pressing into service the liquor squad and state po lice, and by the presence of detectives from the principle cities of the United States. Every avenue of ingress is being watched and orders have been given that all suspicious characters be arrested. On Monday every policeman except those who are ill must report for duty. Throughout the week, the entire police force will be detailed to differ ent places where they are gatherings and parades. Today inspector of build ings, Damrell, with a large force of as sistants inspected th scores of tempo rary reviewing stands which have been erected for the Tuesday's parade and a number, principally those owned by private parties, were condemed. These stands will have to be pulled down and rebuilt. Superintendent of Police Eldridge has arranged to have members of Red Cross ambulance corpse stationed near the line of march next Tuesday for emer gency. If it should rain heavily on Tuesday the parade will not take p'ace. The banners and expensive regalia of the Knights make it out of the question to parade in the rain, and to postpone the parade until WednesJay would be also impossible as the laws of the or der prevent any parading while the conclave is in session, except in case of escort duty. The decoration of the city is proceed ing unabated. The advance guards are beginning to arrive. The first detach ment of one hundred delegates from Nebraska arrived at noon and were escorted to the headquarters. Two del egations from Ottumwa and Keokuk.

WILL FIGHT BULLS PBEPABATIONS TOR THE SPORT AT GILLETTE, COLO- Threats and Protestation? of the Humane Society so Far Fruitless Promoters of the Fiesta Expect No Gubernatorial In terference aad, In Fact, They Wouldn't be Surprised to See Him Sannter iato the Amphitheatre. Himself Dallas Chief of Police Wants to Know How About the Militia, for Instance. 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 ceedings if no cruelty occurs. At Gillette eveything is in readiness for three days' carnival of sport. The vast arena seats 15,000 people, Is com pleted and surrounding it is a small city of refreshment booths and side shows.

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 the supreme law of the state, makes It -the duty of the governor to cause the laws to be faithfully executed. At the proper time what force may be necessary and deemed expedient to guard against failure will be used to prevent this proposed infraction of the laws of the stae. Cabell's Interrogatory as to whether the governor would sanction shooting of citizens was rather a hard shot for Texas' young governor and he very promptly replied that he would not at tempt to answer that question but would refer it to the attorney general for his legal opinion, which will be forthcoming.
