Governor Marshall and other Demo

to open headquarters soon as a candi

American Missions in Province
of Kwang-Si Have Been
Burned Along with Hospital
and College.
Missionaries Were Warned in
Time to Escape Anti For
eign Rioters Uprisings
(American News Service)
Canton, China, Nov. 12. Refugees
arriving here today by boat from the
Province of Kwang-Si reported that
practically all the American Missions
had been destroyed by a revolt against
foreigners, which is raging throughout
the American Presbyterian -church,
the hospital and the American college
were . burned. Three battalions of
troops have been sent from here to
quell the disturbances. At Llencbou,
the Kwang-Si Province, the mission
in charge of Doctors Machle and
Ross. and. also Mrs. Ross, Mr. Carver,
Mr. Kunkle, Mr. and Mrs. Edwards
and Miss Patterson was attacked.
Only by a timely warning were the
missionaries able to escape from the
anti-foreign rioters.
The uprising was totally unexpect
ed by the missionaries No disturb
ances have occurred in the Kwang-Si
Province for nearly two months and
the Americans believed themselves to
be on ' the most friendly", te'rms - with
the Chinese. :
Two months ago there was an upris
ing which was not taken as a demon
stration solely against the foreigners,
but chiefly as a ..protest, by . the. -natives
against additional taxes.
There has been considerable uneasi
ness among American missionaries in
China, however, since' the riots of last
April and May, when, scores of build
ings erected by Americans in various
missionary colonies were destroyed
and attempts made on the lives of the
missionaries. - . . , ' '
At that time the riots were centered
in Chang Sha, near Pekin and the for
eigners were given refuge by British
warships. Big posters announcing
that all the missionaries would beklll
ed were placarded throughout the
town and a U. S. cruiser was rushed to
Hankow where fresh outbreaks were

when 6,000 foreign drilled troops join

- The riots at that time were caused
mainly because of a rice famine which
was sweeping that part of the coun
try. The foreigners were blamed by
the ignorant class of Chinese for the
food deficit and were soon Incited into
riot by fanatics. .

In the addresses by the Rev. Levi
Pennington, pastof of South Eighth
Street Friends' church, and Evangel
ist George Mahy last . evening two
strong messages of gospel exhortation
were given the large audience in at
tendance Mr. Pennington who sex
tended the pastoral greeting,, laid
especial emphasis on the importance
of the harvest time and to the fact
that there is a harvest awaiting the
Christian workers in Richmond at the
present time. As ; the basis for his
talk he used the words .of Christ:
"Lift up your eyes; the fields are al
ready white unto the harvest" From
this he drew two strong points, one
the advantage of lifting up the eyes
to the contemplation of better things,
and the other to note that the harvest
field Is awaiting the. workers. Mr.
Pennington ' gave as illustration how
when the harvest time Is on all those
who can be secured are pressed into
service in order that the harvesting
may be done as quickly as possible,'
and the crop saved from ruin by the
weather or from spoliation by becom
ing over ripe. It is the same in God's
work there" is something for every
one to do, even though' it be only to
carry water to those who are bearing
the heat and, burden of the day. Mr.
Pennington believes too many people
are ' looking down : in discouragement
or trying to satisfy themselves with
trivial things that are unworthy , of
immortal souls..' Me said he knew of
people who went to see the dancing of
Pavlowa when they should have been
engaged In the work of the church.
He declared that there is plenty to do
right here in Richmond and this, he
aid, was not necessarily due to the
fact that the city went "wet' and may
do so again. . The burden of Mr.
Pennington's Inal exhortation was to
do something God has a job for ev
ery one. , ,
Mahy Urges Preparation.
Mr. Mahy spoke on preparation to
meet God and he emphasised In many
ways the overwhelming importance
of sudi preparation. Sin. he declared,
cannot stand in the presence of God.
There are Christians here who would
not want their lives opened up to
public view but God will bring every
secret thing into judgment. We pre
pare for other, things and why not for
the long journey from which no trav
eler ever returns? " The preparation,
her said, should consist in the confes
sion of sin, the forsaking of sin and
seeking Christ. ; God , is profoundly
concerned that we should be prepar
ed. The Bible quotations and the ex
amples used to make plain the
speaker's theme, were unusually in
teresting and illuminating.
Mr. Mahy was quite well acquainted
with the late Senator DolHver and he
took occasion to pay him a high trib
ute for his worth of Christian char
acter. Mr. Dolliver had enjoyed a
strong Christian experience and he
testiled to this fact when -opportunity
presented to do so.
The services for Sunday are as In
dicated at the beginning of this arti
cle. Thousands of special tickets of
invitation to the principal services are
being distributed today and a special
invitation is also given for those who
can sing, especially men. to join the
large chorus. There will be no serv
ices Sunday evening in "j any of the
churches united In, this movement, ex
cept as indicated above.. Interest in
the meetings has been maintained
throughout the week and it Is felt that
with the services of Sunday the in
fluence of the effort will begin to be
more generally felt. The services of
tomorrow will mark - the inauguration
of ' the . soul , winning campaign that
consistently follows what has been a
week of careful preparation.
