ALARMING NEWS FROM CHINA. The United Slates State Department Fears Another Big Boxer Revolt. Washington, Sept. 20. China is on the verge of another boxer revolt wak-lnnay qualtliat of 1UUQ, cording to mail advices received at the state department from Minister Conger, dated last month. The troubles apear to arise prin cipally from extortionate, taxation combined with resentment against the preseuee of missionaries, thus justifying the judgment of the de partment of state, which pointed out to the powers that the demand for excessive indemnities would result iu serious internal troubles iu China Mr. Conger's first a ivieelnrsdate of August 0, from IVkin, and he re ports serious anti-foreigu riots near Client u, in province of Szechuan, iu which a number of native Christians had been massacred and chapels de stroyed. Mr. Conger addressed a note to Prince Ching at the foreign otlice stating that there were several American missionaries and many chapels and convents Iu Keechuan and that it was necessary that im mediate provision betaken to stamp out these trouble at their very in ception. The foreio;n othVe replied that sev eral edicts have been issued directing the viceroy to suppress the trouble, It had received a telegram from that official stating that the rebel Hsiung Ching He of Jeu Chou Hsiau made his appearance suddenly at the head of a mob uud burned a chapel and some thirty odd houses early in that moon and also killed a christian Other outrages were also committed whereupon the viceroy dispatched troops to the scene who killed some twenty boxers. The leader of the riot was alsocaj tured and ordeis were given to have him belteaded and his head exposed. The rebels at other poiuts were also attacked by the government troops and routed. Three or four hundred were killed. The judge of the province reported that there was no need for the mis sionaries io seek temporary refuge, BLOW TO SILVER. Z The Massachusetts Democrats Rejected George Fred Williams and in to i, Boston, Sept. 21, At the demo cratic state convention here yester day, George Fred Williams, the rep resentative of the silver democrats was turned down as a Massachusetts leader. William A. Gaston wus nom mated for governor. Hie minority report for "free silver" was utterly defeated on the floor and the mujor ity report was adopted by an over whelming majority. In this battle Mr. Williams was utterly routed, with the predicted re suit that he is shorn of all power of leadership. The platform adopted is a repudiation of the Kansas City platform, for Mr. Gaston refused to be the nominee if in any way the dec laration of principles could le con strued to indorse those things most prominently advocated by the party in the last two campaigns. It might be said that in naming Colonel Gaston to head the ticke precedent was shattered, inasmuch as he was nominated and then given a platform of his own dictation. The ticket was as follows: For governor, William A. Gaston, of Boston; lieu tenant governor, John C. Crosby, of Pittsfleld; secretary of state, Will more B. Stone, of Springfield; treas urer, Thomas C. Thacher, of Yar mouth; auditor, J. L. Chalifoux, of Lowell; attorney general, John Flaherty of Gloucester. Kills a Masked Burglar.

RADICAL ACTION BY j SPEAKER HENDERSON, j Withdraws From Congressional Race Rather Than Attack Trusts by Mod- unBJarifl4otiblv Antkigated Defeat by ex-Gov. Horace Boies. Dubuque, la.. Sept. 20. Spenser Henderson has made public a letter withdrawing from the nn for re elec tion to congress. He nays lie Muds! that he is out of imrtnonv with the owa state K-'puMicnn convention when it declares for modification of trust-sheltering tariffs. He does not urther represent his constituents, he nds, and withdraw us neither par tial not entire free trade in his opin- in is the proper cure for trusts. IVs Moines, Sept. 2'. Speaker Henderson refuses to reconsider his decision not to statu! for re-election to congress. This announcement is contained in a telegraphic answer to a request wired him by Life Young and S. W. Uathbuu. After stating that his decisiou is final, the speaker says: "I cannot ueqniesc in administer ing the free trade poison to cure the trust evil, which I abhor. Washington, Sept. 20. Speaker nendersou's withdrawal on account of the tariff-trust question fell like a bombshell in political envies here. Republicans are dismayed, for if Henderson has sincerely stated his rensou for his action, a wide split, of utmost importance in the congres sional elections, is evident. lemocrats are jubilant for the same reason, and moreover, lecnuse they lielieve that Henderson's action insures the election of ex-Governor Horace Boies, his Democratic oppo nent. Henderson him placed a strong card in their hands. One of t he lead ing Republican representatives with draws rather than take action which ia popular opinion would do much to curb the trusts, lie withdraws to private life rather than uttack them even in that small particular. Secretary Edwards, of the Demo cratic congressional campaign com mittee, said: "The withdrawal of Henderson at this time is worth 25 seats to us in the next house. It shows that the Republicans do not care to stand up and face the issues presented. Gov ernor Boies w ill be elected by a hand some majority." Henderson was not popiilaramong many members of congress because he ruled with.too strong a bund. The house, under his speakership, was the speaker. J'he average congress man amounted to little. Ilendersdn would have had a bard fight for re election to the speakership under any circumstances, and it. is predicted that his successor as presiding otti cer, be he Republican or Democrat, will not have the power Henderson bad. Henderson's withdrawal comes at the same time ns the announcement that the political conference of lead ing senators with the president at Oyster Bay hnd decided that the tariff should not be tinkered with during the coining winter, The possibility of defeat by Boies and the possibility of defeat for the speakership are urged by Democrats as two reasons which impelled the speaker ns strongly as did the one he states in his letter Tragedy in Arkansas. Little Rock, Ark., Sept. 20 -Rep resentative C. L. Pool, of Calhoun county, was in the city to-night and related meager particulars of a bloody tragedy which occurred in the western part of Columbian coiinty last .night. Mr. Pool's informant was unable to give the names of the parties, but related the facts ubout as follows: A citizen ol the county sold a tract of land for $.'H0 cash Monday, and two of his neighbors, being aware of the transaction, went to his home the following eveniug and proposed an opossum hunt. Not suspecting any harm, the man who bad the .'(0 in his house departed with his neigh bors. Soou afterward a peddler drove up to the house and requested lodging for the night. The house wife, thinking her husband would soon return from his hunt, told the peddler to take his team to the barn and return to the bouse, which he did in a short time. When he reach ed the dwelling he found what ap peared to be two negro men inside, who had just murdered his hostess by severing ber head from the body with a knife. The peddler shot and killed the two negroes and immedi ately aroused the neighbors.
