Two Hundred Who Entered Into Con
spiracy Against Government Are
Put to Death Without Trial
Wu Change, China, Sept. 26. —More than two hundred
mutinous soldiers were executed without the formality
of a court martial by loyal troops in consequence of the
outbreak among soldiers encamped beyond the walls of
this city Tuesday. The remainder of the mutineers fled
to the open country. The mutineers were cavalrymen and
numbered more than 2000. They had arranged with ar
tillerymen inside the walls to join the movement, but the
gunners failed to keep their promises. General Chi Men
permitted the gates to tie opened as arranged by the con
spirators. The mutineers were admitted and immediately
shot down.
Mutiny of Troops.
Peking, Sept. 26.—The troopr en
camped outside the gates of Wu
Chang, capital of the province of Huh
Pe, mutinied Tuesday night und at
tacked the city.
A strong force of General Li Tuen
Hang's regiment engaged the rebels
and after several hours of fierce fight
ing dispersed them. Two officers were
executed for failing to divulge their
knowledge of the movement.
It is believed the attacking party
only intended to loot the city, but
most of the towns In the Interior have
no defenders from such outbreaks in
which both the republican and former
imperial iroops indulged. The repub
lican spirit apparently Is not appre
ciated by the cla«ses from which the
soldiers are recruited.
The object of tile present loan is os
tensibly for the purpose of paying off
and discharging this menacing army,
which is very large.
The Chinese appear to be well
pleased with the success of the new
loan negotiations.
Little heed has been paid to the
fact that contrary to the constitution
this contract has not been submitted
to the national assembly.
It is believed that President Yuan
Shi Kal prefers a comparatively small
loan because his authority is not yet
sufficient to control, while a govern
ment organization for handling the
money docs not exist since tlie late
government bank closed its doors.
Pathetic conditions prevail through
out the country. Occasionally detach
ments of soldiers engaged in looting
and wanton destruction. Trade Is
greatly hampered and thousnds of per
sons are dying from starvation who
could be saved by t lie employment of a
few foreign engineers.
The political situation, which is
absorbing the republican leaders, has
curious and Interesting phases. The
Manchu princes recently gnve a dinner
in honor of Dr. Sun Yat Sen and
'toasted the republic. But the Im
perial guard lined the streets (luring
Dr. Sun's visit, this being regarded as
the safe course. The troops of the
court, contrary to the abdication terms,
remain in the forbidden city. President
«^,Tuan evidently desiring their presence
there.

Progressive movement has swept the
north and that he will come down to
the southern section of the state with
more than 6000 plurality for governor.
Upon request of the Capital News
Mr. Martin consented to slate some
of the acts done by him as an attor
ney to show ills sympathy with pro
gressive ideas and the progressive
movement, the Idea being conveyed to
him that specific acts would show
better than any amount of wordy dec
larations. It will be noted from what
he says that the nominee for gover
nor upon the Progressive ticket bears
the unique and wholly unusual dis
tinction of having been employed as
an attorney against corporations and
special Interests instead of attorney for
such interests. Mr. Martin said:
"One thing has given me greater
pleasuro than my nomination to the
governorship on the Progressive ticket,
and that is the expressions of good
will and hearty assurances of support
of the people of my own county of
Bonner. It is a great satisfaction to
have the support of my ow n people re
gardless of party or faction.

Loan Virtually Admits Inability
to Cope With Situation
Mexico City, Sept, 26. —Stringent measures, such as
the government's recent suspension of constitutional
