Sunday's attack can only be consid ered a slight foretaste of bigger things to follow, because the ma n body of the revolutionists is steadily 'investing every side and bringing the pig guns Into position on every emi nence. The Plans of the attacking force are not revealed. The insurgents may not attempt to rush the c ty but ntav prefer to bombard steadily and await its surrender.

The ministers believe that the lega tion guards will lie able to prevent a massacre unless It Is thoroughly or ganized and suddenly precipitated. By order of the police dragon, flags are 'fiving throughout Pekin, emble matic of the people's Joy at the for mation of a new constitution. The regent today, with elaborate ceremonial, took the oath, swearing adherence before the emperors tab let In the ancestral temple to i i nineteen constitutional articles. The oath was as follows: "Mv policy and choice of officials have not been wise: hence the recent troubles. Fearing the fall of the sacred dynastv, 1 accept the advice of the national assembly. 1 swear to uphold the nineteen constitutional articles and organize a parliament, excluding the nobles from administrative posts. I and my descendants will adhere to it forever. Your Heavenly spirits will foe and understand." The lower classes believe that this declaration means that peaoe will be proclaimed but the ed.joated classes are not Impressed. They -think Yuan Shi Kal Is so embarrassed he would return home but that ho fears "his de parture would be the signal for a panic and a Manchu outbreak.

Itis said that he is again strongly "fcuporting the dynasty. Imposing cer tain conditions. The change is at tributed to the rally in Shangtung and It Is also probable says the correspon dent that Yuan can more easily obtain the financial support he wants ny breaking with the rebels. From on of the Chinese revolu tionary leaders, the Journal has ob tained an outline of the proposed mil itary campaign. According to this as soon as Nan kin is taken, the revolutionary army will be divided into three sections. The Nanking troops will advance along tha Imperial grunt carta'-ft Tien Tsin. The Hankow army will cross the Yellow river and proceed by the Hankow .railway to Pekin. The Canton force will be transported directly by sea to Tien Tsin.

The steamship companies are greatly alarmed and are considering the sus pension of their services, but are con tinuing for the present with armed ere ws. Great indignation has been arous ed by the attack by pirates on the Urltish steamship Shiuan a few days ago, when Chief officer Nicholson was murdered and the people are be coming clamorous for intervention of some kind to put down the lawless ness. In 1908, owing to the piratical out rages, guards were placed on all the steamers and other precautions we. a taken, but latterly because of over confidence that the Urltish flag was immune from attack, these precau tions were relaxed. The rifles have become rusty and their passengers are without ammunition. One steam er carries a cannon, but no shells. Canton Is said to be practically in the hands of brigands. Grave trou bles are feared. General Lung is al most powerless to maintain order and contemplates flight. Some anxiety is felt by the foreigners.

This diary, which was found among the dead man's effects, has been in the possession of Horace G. Itenson, special prosecuting attorney from the first and he made frequent reference to it in his cross-examination of Mrs. Patterson. Writing to his mother July 21, last, Patterson said: When you said In your letter: 'th, how I wish rhe would only act square ly and leave entirely find not be a make In the grass,' you said a whole lot. If ever there was a woman who was a demon on earth in her home, and then makes outsiders believe she was terrible mistreated, it Is her; tnc lies she telis and the purring way she can purr and work on pec-pie's feel- ngs. sure makes outsider ii'-neve me a devil, but such is not the c"se."

(meaning tuberculosis) from Inner! tancy or bringing up. Ah, no; 1 was tortured and worried to death, and so help mo God, I have been as true In thniieht. word and deed to that wom an I adored and loved, as it was pos sible for God to make a man uo, uu. from the dav I was married until the. day I took down sick my every move wag watched. I was threatened and attacked by hired sluggers under the elevated one night near homo, and only my fleet ties of foot saved my life. I' would have been slugged to death and the verdict Would have been "lold up.' Oh. yes, a hold up. I kept all things silent because to men tion them would lay niy wlfes good name open to question." : Referring to the time when he had come to Colorado for his health, the diary says: "Well It seems that Just about that time she was seeking a divorce and God knows she made it a living hell for me at that time; me, a rick man and barely able to walk. She jabbed me with a bmg pin one day. rorclng me to wince with pain, because I had discovered hid awuy In her stocking a large ruby ring. She had many things such' as an Indian relic from tai0 nrt when I discovered It in her threatened to throw IT nwav, she threatened to throw It at me." . ' C'ltlnkft Hid In Ilaggnnc far. !i Paso.
