LODON, Dec. 2G.-The Shanghai correspondent of The Standard, tole graphing Dec. 24, says: "The government has artested Prince Tuan and Prince Chang on the borders of Shan ,Si and Shan Se provinces. Yuan Hsien has been ordered to return to Sian Fu forthwith to be executed, it is supposed."

THE NOTE IS PRESENTED. Demands of the Powers Delivered to the Chinese Representative. PEtINo, Monday, Dec. 24.-The pre liminary joint note was delivered to day to the Chinese.

J. do Cologam, who presented the note, said he would immediately communicate its contents to the emperor and assured the minis ters that a speedy reply was the desire of the court, as it felt that all China wants is peace and prosperity. PARIS, Dec. 25.-A dispatch to the Havas agency from Peking says: "The ministers assembled at the res idence of Senor B. J. de Cologan (tho Spanish minister and the dean of the diplomatic corps) and received Prince Ching, to whom the Spanish minister handed the joint note of the powers. Li Hung Chang, who is still ill, asked to be excused. Prince Ching said: "'I have the honor to accept the note concerning the re-establishment of good relations and will transmit it immediately to the emperor and com municate to you his reply as soon as received.'

Cemen' .ille in the Hands of a , Negro Mob--Whites Keep in Doors. Outbreak Begins by the Col ored Men Trying to Run the Town. ONE OF THEIR NUMBER SHOT Sheriff Appears on the Scene and Partially Quells the Disturbance. Placea3 Quiet but the Least Quarrel Will Bring on Trouble. JEFFERSVILLE, Ind., Dec. 26.-A race war is on at Cemeutville, a small sta tion on the Panhandle road, five miles north of this city, and serious trouble is expected at any minute. The negroes are all armed and the whites are keep ing within doors to avoid them. The outbreak began when Lee Ran ger and John Redmond, negroes, both drunk, started in to intimidate whites. When their insults were resented other negroes joined the liquor-crazed men and captured Sam Kendall's saloon. Nearly 20 shots were fired but no one was hurt. An appeal by telephone was made to Sheriff Rave for help and he drove to Cementville and to some extent quieted the negroes. After his departure an. other outbreak took place and message after message came to the local police to send men to the town. Sheriff Rave was again asked to go the scene, but he declined to do so. One Negro Shot. Kendall, in addition to his saloon, conducts a dry goods store, which was being attended by his wife, and into this the negroes flocked after the firing at the saloon. Mrs. Kendall was badly frightened and her husband ran into the place and began shooting into the mob. Ranger was shot, but how badly is not known, as he was carried away and secreted by his comrades. Ken. dall's life was threatened and about midnight he managed to escape from his store and came direct to this city, awakening Prosecutor Montgomery and begging him to issue warrants and have deputy sheriffs sworn in to serve them. It was almost daylight when the community became quiet, the negroes having everything their own way. So far no outbreak has taken place. It is believed the slightest quarrel will bring about a bloody riot. There is no direct telephone com munication with the place, but a pri. vate line owned by the railroad is be ing used to keep the officers posted. Look up our premium list in The Mail. IS IN THEE BALACE Amount of Ammunition on Hand Settles Attitude of Disloyal Dutch. Danger That Parties of Boers May Raise the Whola Cape in Rebellion. ARE WAITING FOR A LEADER Ninety Per Cent of the Resi dents Are Ready to Join an Uprising. There Are Not Enough Troops in the Colony to Enforce Martial L.aw. Losnox, De'. 2E.--Tho position of Cape C(olouy is hanging in the balance, according to The Morning Post's Cape Town corro:;pondent. Everything do. podtls upon the quantity of ammuni tiol in possession of the disloyal Dutch residents, 100 of whom have joined the Doers in the PLillipstown district alone. Energetic measures have been taken to stem the invasion, but there is unquestionably danger that parties of Boers will get through into parts of the Colony and gradually raise the whole Caeo in rebellion. Reinforce moents can arrive none too soon. Most of the dispatches from Cape Town de scribe the raiders as doing little harm and as being happily enclosed by Lord Kitchener's command. Lord Kitchener is in the heart of the disaffected dis trict. He has the advantage of being personally acquainted with local condi tious. Last March heo supervised the suppression of the rising which oc curred then. He is bringing down thiousands of troops front the north. ( allot. ,'i.force i;arti:al Law. The Standard's Cap;; Town corre spondent says the loyalists demand tlhar martial law shhiil be proclaimecd tnr i-ghout C.ie Col:,ry, and adds: "Such a stop is now impossible ow ing to the lack of sufficient troops to enforce it." The correspondent of The Daily Mail at Cape Town says: ",The pro-Boer press is singularly quiet. They have been made uneasy by the promptness and thoroughness of the military actious, but reports from various parts of the western provinces foreshadow perilous possi. b:lities. "A responsible party who recently maide a tour of the colony says that 90 per cent of the Dutch are simply wait ing the appearance of a resourceful leader to rebel." Civil railway traffic has been sus I pended largely in all parts of the colony and the movement of both the Boers and the British are almost unknown in Cape Town. IN HANDS OF BOERS. Almost Entire Country, With Exception of J.hannesburg and 'retorla. BERLIN, Dec. 20. -German volunteers who have just arrived from the Trans. vnal confirm the report that the South African situation is most serious for the English. They say with the ex ception of Pretoria and Johannesburg the whole of the Transvaal and largest part of the Orange Free State are in the hands of the Boers. The Boer ,army is stronger than the English de sire to have known, and it is spread ever the whole theater of the war. Germans are unable to understand how the English government is able to withhold the entire truth of the situa tion. It is believed here that England will never be able to conquer the Boers, even if Mr. Kruger should make peace on his private responsibility, for the Boer commanders in the field are the only personages who have any ultimate authority. BOERS RETIRE NORTHWARD Thornycroft's Mounted Infantry Occupies lirittetown Without Opposition. LONDON, Dec. 26.-Lord Kitchener, telegraphing to the war office under date of Naauwpoort, Dec. 24, reports: "Tbornycroft's mounted infantry have occupied Brittstown without op position. The Boers retired to the north in the direction of Prieska. They will be followed up." DETAILS UNOBTAINABLE. Battle Reported in Progress In Neigh borhood of De Aar. CAPE Tows, Dec. 26.-Fighting is going on near De Aar. Particulars are unobtainable. Two hundred Boers have left Brittstown after commander. ing all supplies available. Irish Cavalry Called Out. LONDON, Dec. 26.-A dispatch from Belfast states that all available cavalry has been ordered to prepare for service in South Africa. This is regarded as confirmatory of the report that Lord Kitchener has asked the war office for 80,000 more mounted troops. A new street light is being placed on Broadway at the foot of California street. THUNDERER ALARMED. Publihres a Long Article on t'rogress of America,, Competition. LONDON, Dec. 26. -The Times hasan other long article upon the progress of American steel and iron competition, concludin, as follows: "How much of the world's expand ing trade will America take from us? How muuch will she leave for us to struggle over with other manufactur ilg nations? Apparently the problem will be solved far sooner than has been. generally expected. The abnormal de mand of the United States for its own engineering products is last slackening, thus bringing the marvelous increase in American manufacturing capacity for the last few years, and especially for the last. three, to bear upon foreign markets. It is a question para mount to all others even to the effi ciency of the navy subsidy." A BOX OF CARTRIDGES. Findl of a Cjerk in thIe State Audltor's Of-, ftic at frankfort, Ky. FnANKFotLT, '4jy., Dec. 2f;. -One of the clerk:s in the state auditor's office in searching the vault for old records found a cartridge box containing eight in 'tal patched smoseless powder cart, ridges, 3b---55, corresponding exactly to the bullet found in the hackberry tree and which was believed to have passed through Senator Goebel's body. The signilicance of the discovery lies in the fact that Henry Youtsey, convicted of participatioli in the Goebel assassina Lion in October, was a clerk in the. auditor's office at the time of the as ,a.-sination and had access to the vault - where the cartridges were found, and that George Barnes, another clerk in the office, testified that he saw Youtsey with a box of cartridges. ASKS THE REASON. Iussell HIarrioln teelcing to Ascertain VWhy Hle lVas l)iseharged. WAsmNIr roN, Dec. 26.-Russell B. Harrison, son of the former president, who was inspector of the volunteer army in Porto Rico, has arrived in Washington and is trying to ascertain President McKinley's reasons for di recting his discharge. Lieutenant Colonel Harrison also desires to ascer tain the exact character of the reflec tions made upon him by Brigadier General G. U. Davis in a personal letter to Adjutant General Corbin, dend why his request for a court of inquiry was not gr:nted. Harrison is not criti cising the presidelt. His friends in the administration circl, believe he will be taken- care of by the president, by receiving a civil appointment. OCCASIONS SURPRISE. Supposed at lMilwanke, College IHad the Iloles of Father Marquette. MILWAUKLKEE, Dec. 26.-Surprise was occasioned in this city by the reported discovery of the supposed bones of Father Marquette at Frankfort, Mich. It has been generally supposed for the past 20 years that the remains of Father Marquette were in possession of Mar quette college this city. They were located by Father Jacker, qu Indian missionary in 1878 at St. Ignace, Mich., on the site of the chapel of St. Ignice, which Father Marquettee founded in 1671. Father Jacker found the ruins of the chapel and digging beneath the altar's site discovered the relics. They were sent to Marquette college which was then being built. MR. HANNA'S WARNING. Unless Ship Subidy 11111 Is I'Passed an Extra Session Is Likely. WASHINGTON, Dec. 26.-Senator M. A. Hanna is said to have served notice on some of the opponents of the ship. ping bill that if it is not acted upon at this session there will be an extra ses-' sion of congress in the spring. It is not assumed by otler senators that Mr. Hanna would try to influence the pres.. ident to call an extra session to con sider his bill alone, but that if there is an attempt to sidetrack his bill after. the holiday recess he will not willingly stand aside for the army bill, nor even: for all the appropriation bills, but will, make a fight and let the responsibility for an extra session rest upon the fail. ure of necessary legislation. Soldier Runs Amuck. WASHINGTON, Dec. 26.-Frenzied by drink, James L. McDonough, a private" soldier at Fort Washington, attacked a' sergeant and four privates at the post who were about to place hin under arrest and stabbed three of the party with a bayonet he had concealed under his coat. Two other soldiers were also victims of the infuriated man, one sus taining a painful wound in the arm and another being stabbed in the shoulder. Christmas Day at Washington. WASHINGTON, Dec. 26.--Christmas day was generally observed here, all of the churches holding special services. At the White House the president and Mrs. McKinley dined alone, and spent a good part of the day together in their private apartments. In the afternoon several personal friends called for a short time. The government depart. meats were closed and until late in the day the streets presented an almost de serted appearance.
