Made No Effort to Prevent the Massacres. Ind ignat ion of Foreign Residents in China—They Will Apply Direct to Their Various Governments Ask ing for Reparation—No Confidence in Diplomats. London. Aug. 6.—The Daily Tele graph prints a dispatch from Shanghai saying that tho Rev. H. S. Phillips of the English Church Missionary society witnessed the atrocities at Wliasang, but was powerless to do anything to prevent them. The Chinese magistrate, the dis patch also says, waited until the for eigners wore murdered or had fled before he appeared. The rioters, who num bered fifty, were led by a man carrying a red flag. It seems that the massacre was carefully planned. Thore are about a thousand soldiers stationed at Kucheng, and they could have stopped the riot had tho officials chosen to order them to do so. American Mission Burned. The same dispatch states that the American mission at Shashi, near Han kow, on the Yang-tee-Kiang river, has been destroyed and its former occupants are fugitives. Tho American consul here has advised the missionaries in oth er parts of tho country to retire. No Confidence in Diplomats. At a meeting of foreign residents of Shanghai foreigners were urged to ap peal direct to the governments of their various countries to secure reparation for the many outrages committed in the Chinese empire, especially for that at Whusng. Seme of tho speakers at this meeting declared that no confidence was to be placed in tho diplomatic rep resentatives at Pekin. The American residents desire the appointment of a commission to inquire into the outrages in Szecliuen and other inland provinces, apart from tho British commission, to be under the control of American Con sul Jernigan, and Mr. O'Con or, the British minister, has given his assent to the proposition. The existing commis sion is composed of British Consul Trat man, of Chung-King: one missionary, the native prefect at Chengtu, the pro vincial treasurer and the provincial judge. All of the latter are regarded as having been implicated in the attacks upon foreigners. Our Navy Relieved. Washington, Aug. o.—Tho statement from United Statos Minister Denby and j Consul General Jernigan that no Ameri- ! cans were injured in the attack by the Chinese mob upon the missions near Kucheng relieves our navy department from the necessity of ordering some of 1 the American naval forces to the scene of trouble, although this incident will undoubtedly form the subject of anoth er demand upon the Chinese govern ment for reparation and indemnity for the outrage upon the property rights of the American missionaries. The near est American naval vesvl is the Detroit, which arrived at Shanghai on Saturday, but she could not get within hundreds of miles of Kucheng, and the only man ner in which her forces could operate would be by means of armed launches. Meeting of Foreign Resilient.s. Shanghai, Aug. ll.—At a crowded ! meeting of the European residents in i this city yetterday speeches condemning j the action of the Chinese authorities in i the case of missionaries at Whai-Han, near Ku-Cheng. last Thursday, were made, and a resolution was adopted to ' appeal directly to the European govern- i meats against tho ourage. Tho resolu- i tion also referred to the inadequate man- j ner in which China has dealt with the perpetrators of former outrages. No Provocation for I lie Outrage. Hong Kong, Aug. l>.—The massacre of Chinese missionaries, according to re ports received here yesterday, began last j Thursday at Whai-Han, near Ku-Cheng. Tho houses of the missionaries were set i on tire aft or the massacre. The bodies j of the victims are exacted to arrive at i Fuchati to-day. There was no provoca tion for the outrages. Tho perpetrators, j it is said, were members of a vegetarian society. Chinese troops have been sent j to the scene. The British and Ameri- j can consuls will have an interview with tho viceroy to-morrow. Methodist Missionaries Sale. Boston, Aug. (.—Word has been re ceived at the office of Zion's Herald that the Methodist missionaries at Kuchung, China, are safe. This means -that Dr. Gregory and Miss Hartford, of Dover, N. H.. who were reported in Sunday's cables to have been either massacred or injured, escaped either fate. C. KENNEDY s DOW NF ILL. Tin; Disbarred Lawyer Must Now Answer to Forgery. Lancaster, Pa., Aug. 0. —G. C.

SAYS HE IS NOT CRAZY. Ex-Mayor Mugowuu Returns to Trenton. Trenton, N. J., Aug. 5. — Ex- mayor Frank A. Magowan, whose departure from this city ten days ago precipitated tho appointment of receivers for the Eastern and the Trenton Rubber com panies, of which he was the president and general manager, returnd to Tren ton last evening. He says he has ample securities to raise all tho money neces sary to take both companies out of the receiver's hands by paying off the pro tested notes, and that this will be done. He claims it will require only SIO,OOO. Magowan also says that ho will contest tho mechanics lien executions against his residence, as they were disputed bills. The judgments were obtained, however, through his allowing tho suits to go by default. Says He Is Not Crazy. Magowan admits that Mrs. Barnes, the wife of his former manager, went to Chicago with her mother, sister and brotner on the same train that ho did, but says they were with relatives in that city and that he has not see them since last Mopday. He laughs at the claim of his father that he is crazy, and says he will go to work at once and get everything straightened out. WHITE HOUSE RENOVATION. An Unusual Amount of Changes 1 Icing Made This Season. Washington, Aug. 1. Tho annual renovation of the White house in tho absence of tho president's family means more this year than usual. Beside the ordinary cleaning and painting a num ber of changes will be made. The most important of these is the new doorway at the rear of the red room. This has been done in order to facilitate the egress of the guests at receptions and obviate the necessity of ha iug to make their way through the dense throng that usually on such occasions make the inner corridor almost impassable. This new doorway has been cut to correspond in every way with the beautiful old fashioned ones that lead respectively to the red and green rooms. The last iin portant finishing touches of polish that will bring out the rosewood to perfection alone remain to be given. In the east room the furniture will be entirely re covered in gold colored satin damask, similar to that now in use. The curtains will be renewed and there will also be a new carpet, so that the effect will bo that of general newness throughout this, the most imposing apartment in the White house where strangers ofteuest congregate to greet tho chief executive.

Washington, Aug. 4.—ln a report to tho state department Consul O'Hara at San Juan del Norte tells why Nicaragua does not permit Chinese to longer land at ports on the eastern coast of that country, as was briefly mentioned in a dispatch some days ago. Tho report says that prior to 1880 there were no Chinese in Nicaragua. In that year a few were brought into the country as plantation hands. In this work they were found to be inferior to natives and when discharged they went to mining or gardening and a few to shopkoopiug. From time to time others came into the country, and in March of this year the Chinese population of the department of Zalaya reached 800. Between March and May of this year about 175 Chinese landed at Bluetiolda, some from Costa Rica but a majority from New Orleans. Most of the Chinese are miners. They work their own claims, live for little and do not become discouraged if their findings are small. The Chinese mer chants who have established themselves have become strong competitors of the white merchants, not only in the sale of goods but in the purchase of gold, rub ber and other production of the country. LIABLE TO IMPEACHMENT. Ballon Warns Secretary Carlisle Re garding Proposed Hull Figlits. New York, Aug. 4.—The following letter has been directed to Secretary of the Treasury Carlisle: "It is announced that ten bulls have been shipped from the City of Mexico to the Atlanta expo sition for the purpose of giving exhibi tions of bull fights. I am informed by counsel that my appeal to the president from your department's decision, ad mitting those bulls, .acts as a stay. You should therefore hold the bulls at the frontier port of entry pending the deci sion of tho president. Inasmuch as your decision has had the effect of encourag ing the importation of bulls, and as bull fights are being announced in various quarters of the country in consequence* I have no reason to believe that the president will uphold your decision, which was a misconstruction of a section of tho tariff law, which in effect seeks to exclude all things of immoral use. Cer tainly, if you admit the bulla pending the decision of the president, I am of the opinion that you will be liable to im peachment at the next session of con gress under the statutes. I have the honor to be faithfully yours, "WILLIAM HOSEA BALLOU." WRECK NEAR PEMBERTON. Engineer Killed and a Number of Passengers Fatally Injured.

MY STRUCK DOWN 1 Lightning Visits a Quaker town, N. J., Church. At Least Twenty Persons Prostrated and Rendered Unconscious A Few Seriously Injured—Clothing Torn from a Man and a Woman's Corset Steels Melted. Flemington, N. J., Aug. s.—The words of a fervent benediction had I scarcely left the lips of Rev. Mr. Bow man, in tho Methodist church at Quaker- j town, seven miles above here, yesterday afternoon when there came a blinding j flash of lightning and a terrifying burst of thunder that all but wrecked the lit tle building. The bolt entered the I church and injured a score of people, several of them probably fatally. The list of those most seriously injured fol lows: James Hoff, Minnie Frace, Miss K. Hoffman, Asa Bannon, the sexton, and Mrs. Bowman, wife of the pastor. The bolt seemed to enter the edifice by the basement shooting up through the floor and bursting with the force of a ! huge cannon. Members of the congre- ' gation who had started to leave or were ! standing in groups conversing with each other were thrown into a wild panic, i while at least twenty of them received j injuries more or less severe. Amid the j tumult of screaming women and crying children, the groans of the injured there was a stampede of frightened horses ; under the sheds outside. A number of them broke their tethers and ran away, wrecking the carriages to which they were attached and dashing down sections of fencing. Pastor Bowman and scores of willing hands were soon at work among the strickeu ones. A number of thorn were unconscious and it was thought at first they had been killed outright. They were laid upon pew cushions. The par sonage, which adjoins the church was converted into a hospital, all the beds being pressed into service. Drs. Snyder of Quukertown and Fruce of Clinton quickly responded to calls upon them ami attended the sufferers. Miss Minnie Frace wus standing close to the side wall of the vestibule with her back toward the wall. The bolt struck her on the back of tho head. It passed around her body and down her back and legs to the floor. Her cloth ing was torn into shreds and stripped from her. Even her shoos and stock ings were torn apart and away from her body. So intense was the heat that her watch guard was melted, and the time piece looks as though it had gone through a furnace. It stopped at 12:10, a grim record of the cruel visitant. Miss Frace's life is dispairod of. Tho burns on the young woman's body were terrible. The course of the fluid could bo traced from the time it entered her body until it left it. There was a black streak showing the course of tho current. Mrs. Bowman, who stood near Miss Frace, was also thrown down by the ex plosion. Her hat was torn from her head and a steel ripped clean out of her corset. She is still unconscious from the shock. All the clothing except the upper undervest was torn from Sexton Bannon, while his shoes looked as though they had been run through a corn shel ter, being literally cut to piecos. Ho is suffering from the shock and can hardly recover. Examination of the building after the excitement had subsided somewhat showed that the holt had struck an outer wall, ran down to the basement, sixty feet along the joists and shot up through the floor like a huge bullet. The large bell in the tower was loosened from its hangings and only a slender strip of scantling kept it from crashing down upon the heads of scores of peo ple at the doorway. RACE WAR AT I'RINCETON, ILL. Negro Men, Women and Children Assaulted by Italians. Princeton, 111., Aug. 2.—A race war lias broken out at Springvalley. Negroes killed an Italian Saturday night and the Italians yesterday headed by a brass hand marched to No. 8 shaft three miles distant and almost cleaned out the ne groes. Over a score of the negroes were terribly injured. They include men, women and children, and were shot, clubbed, stoned and trampled upon. Ago, youth or sex was not considered by the bloodthirsty Italians. The wo men were insulted, skipped, and two of them while begging for mercy, were shot down and fatally injured. Sheriff Clark of Princeton was telegraphed and ar rived on the ground with a posse, hut came too late, as the work had long been done before he arrived. The ne groes fled terror-stricken to the hills and last night slept under the trees. Many of the injured will die. Riot Near Washington. Washington, Aug. 2.—A riot occurred at Riverside park near Mount Vernon vesterday afternoon, und as a result Roy beach and a man named Evans are itrobably fatally injured.
