CANTON IS PESSIMISTIC Seems to Think That Yuan Will Crush the South erners Men! I'm Giving Away Artistic, Metal SECESSIONIST ARMY UNTRAINED THE BARRE DAILY TIMES, BARRE, VT., WEDNESDAY, JULY 23, 1913. i i mmmeif : a : t a i rays Trade Is at a Standstill Throughout South of China Prkin, China. July 23 Trade through out southern China has been dislocated by the proclamation of the independence of Kwang Tung. In this city great anxi ety has been created, stores have been closed and many merchants have tele graphed to shippers not to consign goods here for the present. A great many persons Jiave left the city in junks and others have gone north on foot. Thousands more have flocked into the Portuguese colony of Macao ii nd into Hong Kong, among the latter fcping officials who have retired from their posts carrying with them millions of dollars in silver and paper money. There is a strong feeling of resent ment throughout the southern provinces against the policy of Provisional Presi dent l'nan iS''.:i Kai, but it is felt in most quarters that it will be impossible to resist him for long, as he commands a large trained army, possesses money and has the support of the great pow ers. The fact that the merchants of Hong Kong do not sympathize with the inde pendence movement is regarded among foreign observers as a sign that the re volt will be short lived. It was not expected here that tfie province of Kwang-si would toiiow tne example of Kwang I ung. A laise ru tnor, however, was circulated that the governor of Kwang-si had fled to Hong Kong on board a British vessel. Governor Chang Hsun of Kwang Tung visited Hong Kong on Friday but has since returned here. Former Gov ernor Wii Ifon-Mil of Kwang Tung, who was at one time secretary to Dr. Sun Vat Sen, also has come back here. Before the proclamation of independ ence. Governor Chang Hsun, who was pnpnintcd to the post only two weeks rzo by Kuan .Shi Kai, addressed the as sembly here, declaring his disapproval of the policy of independence for Kwang Tung which bad been introduced. A few of the members supported him with speeches, but the motion was carried and independence proclaimed. Governor Chang Hsun during his short period of office had applied to Pekin for $10,000,000 to place the finances of the province on a stable footing, last rn day hp received $I.."00.000 for this pur pose and he contends that plenty of nion ev is available. The executive office are the center of a busy scene at present and preparations are being made tor everv eventuality. It is the belief that a fight will oe- r ir on the arrival of General Lung and that the 80,000 secessionist troops who are for the most part badly trained and vndisciplincd, will not, offer much re sistance. Several Chinese war vessels are wait ing here and the Hritish fleet Tias been strengthened by the arrival of several units. A strict censorship has in the mean time been established over all telegrams. KNIGHTS OF BATH MAKE BRAVE SHOW King George Yesterday Presided Over the First Meeting Held in Ninety Eight Years.
