cree Seriously DoubtedThe Army
Will Support HimTo Attempt His
Execution May Mean Civil War
Foreign Envoys Ignore Protests by
the Imperial Court.
!Peking,_Feb. 13.Prince Cfiing and
Li Hung Chang have received a long
dispatcli 'rrb& the court which they
have nbt dlScibsed to the foreign en
voys, it is alleged to contain in addi
tion to the recent celebrated reform
decree an-*8fccoUnt of how Emperor
Kwang Su has sent a choice of method
of suicide to all those named for pun
ishment by the envoys, closing with
the inquiry whether Prince Ching and
Li Hung Chang think the envoys will
be satisfied.
It is understood the Chinese pleni
potentiaries in their reply to the court
said the foreign envoys could not ob
ject strongly to an accomplished fact,
but that they would probably insist
upon the sentence of execution being
published throughout the empire and
possibly upon the heads of those con
demned being exhibited at various
points. 4
It is very seriously doubted in Chi*
nese circles here that General Tung
Fu Hsiang will agree to commit sui
cide. The army will support him. He
has absolute control of the Moham
medans and is believed to be one
himself. He refused to allow the dis
banding of 5,000 men and the emperor
ordered him far from the court. To
attempt his execution, it is thought in
Chinese circles, might mean civil war.
During the morning the foreign en
voys met and considered the question
of quarters for the legation guards.
The matter of indemnity was also
mentioned, especially as bearing upon
the damage done to the personal
property of foreigners.
The reply of the court protesting
against what the Chinese describe as
the "inconsistency of the death pen
alties required by the powers" was
also discussed. The envoys decided
to ignore the protest and decided that
it was desirable to proceed at once to
the delimination and organization of^
the diplomatic quarter.
DISBELIEF IN ROMANISM.
King Edward Must Make 3uch Dec
laration Before Parliament.
New York*, Feb". 13.A dispatch to
The Tribune from London says:
One of the most interesting events'
fir connection with the opening of par
liament on Thursday JriU be the for
mal declaration by the king of his
disbelief in the characteristic doc
trines of the Roman Catholic chorcfe
Any person professing the Popish re
ligion is incapable of inheriting or
'possessing the crown and the sover
eign is bound to make the required
declaration either on the throne in the
house of-lords in the presence of both
houses at the first meeting of the first
parliament after the accession or at
th,e coronation, which ever shall hap
pen first. This curious suryival of a
less tolerant age acquires particular
'Significance on the present occasion,
owing **a|he ifact that the earl mar
shal, who* will -direct the ceremonies
at Winchester, is himself one of the
most devout Roman Catholics in Eng
land. VT-
BLOODYuDUEL FOUGHT.
One Principal, Killed and the Other
Fatally Wounded.
Duluth, Feb. 13.One-armed Prank
Sullivan and William Randolph fought
the bloodiest duel in Rainy Lake City
in the history of the international
frontier of Minnesota. The top of
Sullivan's head was blown off and he
fell with the words "I am shot," and
died instantly. Randolph, before he
killed Sullivan, received two 38-caliber
bullets, one entering his right side
and the other tearing through his
right ear and the side of his face.
Randolph was desperately wounded.
Sullivan was a well known gun fight
er, highwayman and all-round des
perate character. The duel between
Sullivan and Randolph was the out
come of trouble between the men last
summer.
FOR WORLD'S FAIR MAYOR.
St. Louis Democrats Unanimously
Nominate Rolla Wells.
St. Louis, Feb. 13.Rolla Wells was
unanimously nominated for world's
fair mayor by the city Democratic
convention. Mr. Wells is backed by
the Jefferson club, a strong local Dem
ocratic organization. A remarkable
and significant feature in connection
with his selection is the fact that he
supported the gold wing of his party
during two presidential campaigns
and resigned the presidency of the
Jefferson club, which has returned
him to power, because he would not
accept the financial plank of the Chi
cago platform. It is quite apparent
that tHe differences engendered in
local Democratic circles by the silver
Issue are on the verge of being wiped
out.
SMASHED TWO PIGS.
A Carrie A. Nation Club Doing Busi
ness at Dawson, Minn.
Dawson/Minn., Feb. 13.A Carrie
A. Nation tlub, consisting of about
150 people, mostly women, made a raid
on the blind pigs here, smashing and
cleaning them all out. They also vis
ited the two drug stores, giving the
proprietors warning that if they did
not be more careful about, ^giving
liquor as prescriptions on slight pre
tenses that they would be dealt with
in the Carrie Nation order.
A notable feature of the proceed
ings was that the wife of one of the
druggists was one of the most enthu
siastic crusaders. The spokesman of
the crowd was a lady teacher of the
public school.

which has already inundated five
acres of land with petroleum, was
struck during the day in the Black

The contractors claims the well is

000,000 indemnity," said Jan Krige,
the Boer commandant under General
Botha, who is in Chicago. "The ca
