office. which printed the bill to furnish
the required number of copies.
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.

the close of the third week of the Mc
Namara murder trial, which ended

MANCIIHU DYNASTY
WINS A VIlTORI
TRIUMPS AT HANKOW JiIVE.
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. Later he
was guest of the city at a local hotel
and Sunday and Monday he tried to
keep up with a fairly strenuous pro
gram.
Richeson Hearing to Be Long.
Boston.-The grand jury will be
compelled to sit several days this week
hearing further evidence against the
Rev. Clarence V. iY. Richeson of Cam
bridge, charged with' the murder of
Avis Lianell of Hyannis, by the serv
ing of several new summons.
