Bryan Pleased. Norfolk, Neb.-William J. Bryan, in an interview here said he would he glad to see suit begun against the United States Steel corporation. He thought it should have been started 10 years ago, but the fact that it was a suit in equity instead of a criminal prosecution, he declared, showed that either the president rec ognized that the anti-trust law was now worthless as a criminal law or that he did not want to punish big criminals.

IMPERIALISTS A NEW 0CIURAGE. Contract to Borrow $18,000,000 Ii Made With Belgian Syndicate-Dip lomatic Body Meets-Policing of Ch Li Province With Troops Held Con trary to Protocol of 1892. Peking.-The report of an imperial victory in the vicinity of Hankow which has been received from the min ister of war, General Yin Tehang, ha. revived the drooping spirits of the ad. ministration. Additional comfort ha< been found in the conclusion of a loan, which Chinese officials say has just been arranged with a Belgian syndi cate having French and British con nections. This loan is for $18,000,000, the price being 96, with 6 per cent in terest. The syndicate receives 4 per cent commission. The financial groups representing the four nations interested in the rail way loan, the United States, Great Britain, France and Germany, took under advisement a proposition for a loan of $8,000,000, but the United States financiers decided that the pres ent is an inopportune moment. Diplomatic Body Meets. The diplomatic body held a meet ing and considered the request of the viceroy of the province of Chi Li for permission to police Tientsin with troops, which is contrary to the inter national protocol of 1902. The min isters, however, decided to permit the viceroy to do so, owing to the serious conditions prevailing. The ministers decided also to authorize the consuls at Hankow to deal temporarily with all .questions cropping up, but the seizure of foreign ships carrying goods that might be called contraband of war, as threatened by the rebel leader, General Li Yuan Heng, can not be permitted. Regarding the appeal of Shanghai business men through the consuls that a 30-mile zone around Shanghai be de clared neutral, the ministers declined to assent, on the ground that it was a matter for decision by the powers. Peking Is in Panic. Panic prevails at Peking. Both Manchu and Chinese families are tak ing precautionary measures against immediate disturbances. The Chinese are alarmed, owing to a report that the Manchu garrison intends to begin a massacre if it meets with reverses at the hais of the rebels in the south. The Manchus are said also to fear a massacre on the part of the Chinese. Both continue to desert the capital. All trains are delayed and the foreign banks are receiving deposits and lumps of silver and gold. Foreign business houses within the legation quarter are receiving treasure chests for safekeeping at high rates of storage. Many foreigners living outside the legation quarter are be coming alarmed and are formulating in conjunction with the legations measures against emergency. Later Report. Peking.-The situation in Peking is becoming alarming. A veritable panic prevails among the Manchus, and the Manchu women are adopting - Chinese dress. Some of them are attempting to make their feet appear smaller b1 peculiarly constructed shoes. Almost all departing trains are drawn by two engines, so heavily are they loaded, the people sitting on top of their household belongings. Officials are seeking asylum for their wives and children among the foreigners. Prior to the revolution, the news papers frequently cried out against the presence of foreign soldiers, but the natives are now fleeing to them for shelter. One report fixes tomorrow night for an outbreak, but the presence of 15,000 Manchu troops insures the safe ty of the capital for the present. The only danger seems to be from a sudden attack against the throne and the officials, which might precipitate the threatened massacre of the Manchus. Race feeling is becoming intensified. President Taft at Chicago. Chicago.--President Taft spent a busy day in Chicago Saturday. IHe spoke to the American Mining congress in the morning, indorsing the speech made by Secretary of the Interior Fisher here and told the members of the Chicago Bar association that h, was, and expects always to be, op posed to the recall of the judiciary: rode 60 miles by special train to dedi cate the new naval training station at North Chicago and addressed at night the Chicago Association of Commere on peace and arbitration.
