C, Jmly 25. The American legation at Pekin reports to the state department that in the tight ing near, Shanghai remains loyal to Yuan Shi K&i, while the merchants of Canton also oppose the rebellion from business considerations.

Because of the Loottng of the City of Shanghai. - London, July 25. A Shanghai despatch to the Daily Telegraph says: "Looting ha begun in the city and the residents are fleeing. Many fires were caused by bursting shells, and sev eral foreigners were wounded by stray shots. "Shanghai is so full of refugees from Nanking and Kiu Kang that the people are sleeping in the streets. A boatload of southern deserters ws sunk by the g-.mbnat fire. The northerners have oc cupied a rebel fort near the arsenal." The Shanghai correspondent of the Morning Post expresses the opinion that the southerners are not likely to repeat their attacks on the arsenal, but will abandon Shanghai, and that the revolu tion will speedily end. Shanghai, July 25. 2 a. m. During ths past twenty-four hours the rebels Jrnve made a series of spirited attacks on the arsenal, but all of them have been successfully repulsed, and the gov ernment troops are so encouraged at theiir continued success that they have assumed the offensive and are forcing the rebels back on Nantao, a southern suburb of the Chinese native city. Admiral Tsng litis formally warned the Nantao Chamber of Commerce that unless the rebels disperse, he will bom bard their position and the forts at the mouth of the river, which are also m the hands of the southerners. TURKS INVADE BULGARIA. Sofia Threatened by Four Armies and Ferdinand Appeals To Europe. London, July 25. Without declaring war and apparently trusting that the jealousies of the powers will prevent any European interference, Turkey has begun an invasion of Bulgaria. The Turks have occupied and burned the villages on the Jamboil. road and it is reported have pushed their reeonnais sance a far as Philippopolis. No information has yet been received aa to the strength of the forces which have crossed the frontier. Probably they are only comparatively small bodies of Enver Bey's cavalry. Some skirmishing has occurred on the frontier, but seem angly the Bulgarians have offered no serious resistance. In Vienna it is reported that the Turks have crossed the Bulgarian fron tier in three places, roughly coinciding with the routes followed by the Bulgar ians last October, namely by the Marit za and Tundja valleys, as well as in the direction of Jamboli. , King Ferdinand of Bulgaria has pro tested to the powers and appealed for European intervention, but there is no sign that Europe will take action. Jt appears doubtful whether any armistice will be signed at Nih until peace pre liminaries have been arranged. Greece and Servia are both throwing obstacles in the way of an armistice while, push ing their attacks in the direction of Sofia. Violence in Michigan Copper Mines Re suits in Orders Being Issued to Send Soldiers Strikers Urged to Remain Loyal. Calumet. Mich., July 25. Disregard' ing orders of the Western Federation of Miners against violence, many of the 15,000 striking miners of the copper belt yesterday created enough disturbance to result in the ordering out of troops. By to-night there will be nearly 2,400 state soldiers, including cavalry and artillery, in the mining'nelds of tlie upper penin sula of Michigan. There were no concerted attacks on mine property or persons about the mines, but several persons were injured in sporadic brawls. So menacing did the situation appear to Sheriff Crime that he asked Governor Fergus for militia early in the day. When the governor was convinced that armed help was needed be ordered Adjutant-General Vandercook to rush soldiers to the strike zone. While there were several outbreaks in various parts of the country, the main disturbance was an assault on the deputy sheriffs stationed at the mines of the Calumet 4. Hecla company to protect property. ? one of the mines has attempted to op erate but the strikers seemed to object to the presence of the deputies. About 300 strikers, armed with steel drills, clubs and stones and a few with firearms which they fired in the air, marched to the No. 2 conglomerate shaft and stripped the deputies of stars. The victorious strikers proceeded to the Heckla branch mine and divested the deputies thehe of their insignia of authority. 1 he deputies could not offer much re sistance as the strikers outnumber them, but there were many fights after the stars had been collected and several per sons were severely beaten. A few men were taken to hospitals. the strikers then surrounded all the surface plants of the Calumet & Heckla company and forced suspension of aux iliary operations m these plants. hether the strikers yielded to the advice of their leaders or were frighten ed by the call for roops is not certain, but they ceased tbeir violent demonstra tions in the afternoon. Several mass meetings were held and great enthusiasm was shown when the speakers exhorted the men to re main faithful to the strike orders. After a mass meeting in Calumet strikers marched to the Red Jacket shaft of the Calumet A Heckla company and chased awav three watchmen.. Then lovaltv meeting was held at which orators begged the men not to use violence, but to stand together in their demands for more wages, beter working conditions and recognition of the union. At Hancock strikers went to the Park Brewing company's plant, operated bv non-union men since some time ago, and closed the plant by driving away the brewers. " , - SECOND DEATH MISSIVE.

The work will not be completed for more than a year, just how long cannot be determined. It depends upon too many uncertainties, the nature ot the rock, th weather, the water in the river, and more than all, upon the ice, which tears out dams all along the river s length in some springs. About a mile and a half below the site another dam is being erected to replace the wooden one at the gorge, and seventy-five men are at work on this. The Winooki Valley Power Co. as organized tor the purpose ot building this dam and is a branch ot the Amen can Gas Co.

Work on the transformer station is being pushed rapidly forward. The building is to have lateral dimen sions of 27 feet, eight inches by 3rt feet, eight inches, with an altitude of 32 feet. The foundations are of stone, the walls of solid brick construction, with cement floors and steel girders. Steel window frames together with the other inflammable material used in the con struction will make the building abso lutely fireproof in every detail. An approximate reckoning of the cost divides the expense into $,,000 tor the equipment. In each instance, if the cost deviates at all from these figures it will exceed rather than fall short of the es timate, it was stated by the Tenney of ficials to-day. The interior-of the sta tion is to be divided into two rooms, one of which, to measure 20x27 feet, will be used for the transformer equipment, while the other, to be utilized as a. switchboard room, will have dimensions of 13x27 feet.

When completed the transformers located at the new sta tion will furnish power for every patron of the Consolidated Co. on either side of the hill. The construction work is car ried on under the direction of the Ten ney corporation, although its comple tion will see the structure turned over to the Consolidated Co.

"The Granite Manufacturers' associa tion, the Quarry Owners' association, the Merchants' association and the Barre Board of Trade have made extensive ar rnngwmentrfrir the entertainment of aft dealers who want to come to Barre at the close of the convention Thursday afternoon. Friday, Aug. 22. will be known as 'Barre day' and already ths dealers are looking forward to a visit ' to the largest granite center in the world the home of Barre granite. "On July 17 a communication was received from Quincy, suggesting that they would like to have Friday in which to entertain the dealers and asked how that would miit the Barre people. The communication was laid before the com mittee from the above-named organiza tions and Quinery was advised tliat ar rangements had already been completed and invitations issued for Friday as Barre day.' The committee regretted the fact that Quincy had not completed its arrangements and presented its re quests sjtoner, as they would have been disposed to help out Quincy even though they were somewhat behind time. "From articles published in the Quincy papers. 1t appears that some Quincy peo ple are somewhat peeved to think that Barre would not wait till they hart waked to the fact that there was really to be a convention in Boston; but Barre is too busy getting out monuments for dead ones to seriously consider the criti cism of it smaller competitors, and if Iiarre has erected a Barre granite monu ment in Quincy. whose fault is it? "It appears that a Quincy representa tive wis in Barre recently and heard of the preparations which a real live gran ite center was making to entertain the granite dealers, and in order to stimu late Quincy to emulate the largest gran ite center in the world, the followed ap peared soon after in a Quincy paper: " 'Mr. Miller informs us that the Barre Manufacturers' and the Quarrymen's as sociations have appointed committees to raie funds and make arrangements for a special vestibule train to run from Boston to Barre after the convention, which will be free to fill dealers who will go. They expect the citv council to armronriate $500 towards tne enter tainment. Every manufacturer will keep open house. They propose to dec orate their main street beyond anything ever attempted there before, and so im press on the dealers' minds the hospital ity of Barre, that when these dealers want to buy a monument they will think of no place but Barre. They are also preparing some splendid specimens of memorial art to show at the Boston exhibition. "'We are informed by Mr. Miller that the Quincy manufacturers are awakening to their opportunity. He only got his plans made of the Arena floor epac one day before he left for Baire, and had ' oniy time to see six manufaeturera, but they took eight spaces in the exhibition hali. and six pages of advertising in the souvenir program. That is fine, but he says they will have to go somo to keep up with their competitor in Barre. The manufacturers will not have auch a chance to show their goods to the deal ers of the country at large for the next twenty-five years. Space has already been sold in Missouri, South Carolina, Rhode Island. Vermont, Massachusetts and other states.' "Here we have pictured to us. Barre, Vermont, alive to its opportunities, en ergetic and hospitable and over here, Quim v, just awakening. But then, this is not the first time that Barre enter prise has been used as an example to others, and we are pleased to have an other demonstration of 'Y lead; others follow.' "Yes. Friday, Aug. 22, will be 'Barre day,' and indications are that it will be" 'some' day. Barre manufacturers, quarry owners and business men are all co-operat;ng and the key of the citv wi'l be delivered to the N. R. L i. A. on the above date. Details of all ar rangements will bo published later."
