VOL. 37.—N0. 41. REBELS VICTORIOUS. Imperial Troops Defeated by Chinese Insurgents. The Triumphant Rebel Horde Advancing on Pekin. KeinforciMiieiits Hurried Forward to Oppose Their Progress. Great Alarm Felt for the Safety of the Capital—The Takow Massacre At tended by Unparalleled Horror*. Associated Frees Dispatches. London, Nov. 20. — Advices from Shanghai are to the effect that the rebel forces in Manchuria defeated the impe rial troops sent to suppress the uprising in that region. The imperial forces numbered 4000 and the defeat causes the government the greatest anxiety. Reinforcements to the number of 0000 have been dispatched from Tien-Tsin to oppose the rebels who are marching to Pekin. If the imperial troopß are again defeated the position of Pekin and Tien- Tsin will be extremely critical. UNPARALLELED HOItItORS. The Chronicle's correspondent at Tien- Tsin says official repotts of the Takow massacre contain details of horrors al most without parallel even in the his tory of China. Previous dispatches have given but a faint idea of what happened. The members of the little Belgian mis sion had no opportunity of escaping. The slaughter commenced with the killing of tbe native converts, many of whom - were put to death with fiendish cruelty. Children of ten der years were seized by the savages, hacked with knives and roasted at a huge fire. A worse fate still befell the nuns, who were subjected to the gross est indignities, being brutally outraged by the fiends, who afterward brained them with massive clubs. The Belgian priests were cruelly tortured, but met their fate with Christian resignation. One bad his heart and tongue torn from his body and burned by the savages in murderous frenzy. THE FIENDS FEASTED AND FETED. The most astounding statement is that when the miscreants had been satiated with outrage and slaughter, they were feasted and feted by the leading Chinese mandarin in the district. The foreign diplomatic body at Pekin is simply furious. Tbe whole European colony is boiling with indignation. THE REBELS' MARCH UNIMPBDEI). News from Mongolia is increasinly serious. The rebel forces are reported growing larger, and their forward march has been continued so far uninter ruptedly. The imperial troops have ■not yet come in touch with the rebels. Further detachments of troops have been ordered forward. The rebels in their southward march have occupied the towns without resistance being made by the populace.. At all places through which they passed the rebels made a requisition upon the inhabitants for supplies. FOREGOING REPORTS CONFIRMED. A dispatch from St. Petersburg gives the contents of a private telegram about tin Chinese disturbances received by thti Novoe Vremya from Vladivstock, and the statements made confirm those of the Chronicle's Tien-Tsin correspon dent. Vive le Condemne. The Archbishop of Aix Given an Ova- tlon at Lyons. Paris, Nov. 29.—The Archbishop of Aix celebrated mass in the basilica at Lyons this morning.

Paris, Nov. 29.—Eight hundred strik ers at Rive de Gier, after holding dis orderly meetings and parades today, captured the Aguerande mine and re baptised it the "Berthola" mine, in memory of a former deputy of the Loire district.

The Roman Queatlon Closed. Rome, Nov. 29.—Count Kalanokv's re cent references in the Austrian delega tion on papal questions have caused in tense excitement in Rome. Replying to the question ia the chamber of dep uties today, Big. Nicola, minister of the interior, declined to comment on the count's words, which he believed were incorrectly telegraphed, but de clared that so far as Italy was concerned the Roman question was absolutely closed.

A SLAVE SHIP'S FATE. THE BRIO TAHITI FOUND DIS- MANTLED AT SEA. Her Crew of Twenty-One Men and the 270 Gilbert Islanders Aboard Thought to Have Perished—Failure of the First Attempt to Land Slaves in Mexico. San Francisco, Nov. 29. —A dispatch from Manzarrillo, Mexico, states that the steamer Rose villi* arrived there and reports passing at sea the wreck of the brig Tahiti. The vessel had evidently been capsized at least a month ago. Part of her rigging bad been cnt away, but the masts were still standing. Most of the boats remained by the ship, showing that probably all hands were lost. Tbe Tahiti created a sensation last September by putting into Drake's bay, north of here, in distress, with a cargo of 270 Gilbert Islanders, on the way to Mexico under contract at starvation wages. The natives were practically slaves, and there was much talk of seizing the ves sel. Collector Phelps, however, de cided that he had no power to detain her, and she sailed away. It now ap pears that all the natives and the crew of twenty-one officers and men, 291 ia aU, have been lost, and tbe first attempt at landing "blackbirds" in Mexico is a failure. BUOT AT AND MIWSKI).

MONDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 30, 1891. A TIMELY RESCUE. Four Men Stare Death Full in the Face. Afloat on a Burning Craft on Lake Michigan. Their Deliverance Effected With the Greatest Difficulty. The Toledo Railway Disaster A Bliz zard In Vlrgrlnla—Disastrous Fires., Blame's Good Health—Other Eastern News. Associated Press Dlapatches. Chicago, Nov. 29.—For over an hour today on wintry Lake Michigan four men utared full in the face of what seemed to be inevitable death. They were aboard the tug John Miller, which, wrapped in flames, was running at full speed in a great circle. The men had only buckets to delay the moment when, apparently, they would have to decide whether to burn or drown. The tug Welcome sighted the burning tug, and started to the rescue, but the waves were running so high that she was long delayed. At last she succeeded in steam ing close to the Miller, and by almost superhuman exertions took aboard tho scorched and exhausted seamen. The Welcome took fire, and only prompt measures prevented her destruc tion. The iour men who escaped from the Miller were Captain Peter Berry, Engineer James Berry, Fireman Newman and a deck band. The Welcome was under command of Capt. Thomas Berry, brother of the Miller's captain. The rescue took place five miles from shore. The fire is sup posed to have originated in the explo sion of a lamp. After driving the en gineer and wheelsman from their poets the flames disabled the steering appa tus, which had been set by Captain Berry to head straight for port, instead of making the huge circle that so nearly proved the doom of himself and men. BLAINE'S GOOD BEAITH. Jingo's Physician Makes a Most Flatter- Ing Report. Philadelphia, Nov. 29.—The Press tomorrow will publish the following: To consult his medical advisers was the prime reason for Blame's trip-to Phila delphia. Blame learned that he was in better health and strength now than four years ago, and that a year hence he will be Btronger than now. He learned further that he is as good a man physi cally at 0i years (Mr. Blame's age; as anybody else of like age. His physician said: "Mr. Blame is a well man. For his years be is sturdy. When [began to attend him last spring he was suffering from acute illness; he was in very bad condition, completely broken down by over work. I did not know what the outcome would be. Now there is no doubt in my mind, for bis health is excellent. He is back to his normal weight, has a good appetite and sleeps well. He has become well by the exercise of common sense, not med icines. At Bar Harbor he went out ridinz bo far per day, walked a certain distance, and played hand ball. Before hie illness be was not a man who would take much exer- cise. Now he has grown to like it. If > Blame continues to take care of himsell, I see no reason why he should not live many years longer. He has entered upon a ripe age, being t>l years old, and taken pleasure in his present strength. * AFPLICATIONS fob rooms. .Mrealty Pouring Into Minneapolis for, the Republican Convention.

Ten have been arrested so far. If the police are prevented from cap turing; the murderers by the silence of all the Chinese in the city, they are bound ta make as much trouble for the Chinese outlaws as possible.
