I'EKIN, Sept. 25.
There have been extensive movements
of Chinese troops In the coast provinces,
but the War Department nnnounccs they
are designed only ngalnst possible revo
lutionary outbreaks and to prevent antl
foreign demonstrations. Whatever tho
purpose, tho Government Is actlvo In put
ting the army Into shnpo for contingencies.
One cause nsslgncd Is the possibility of
the .tnpaiies constructing n lallioad on
tho northern coast of tho Chinese province
ot Shnnlung to Klao-Chau, the German
leasehold on the Shantung Peninsula.
Considerable suspicion has been aroused
among Chinese officials by the supposed
Intentions of Japan because of the prece

which became ultimately a permanent

DIVERS MUST BE CAREFUL
Mot Numerous Dangers In Going
Referring lo the denth of n diver en
gaged on the Empress of Ireland wreck,
n Writer In the Manchester Guardian says
thnt tlii first sensation felt when the
diver goes down to 30 feel or so below
the surface Is n singing In the ears. This
Is duo to the dium of the ear being
stretched a little, and this Is cnused In
tuin by the fnct that the air pressure on
the outside has been Increased, while that
on the Inside la kept normal for a few
seconds longer by some slight obstruction
In the Eustachian tube connecting the
ear with tho nose.
Ordinarily a diver may descend quite
iiulckly to the scene of his work. But
he must bo very careful how he comes
up, nnd the longer ho remains down the
more time must he take In coming up.
The icnson is thnt all the time he Is
down his blood Is absorbing air. The
greater tin. depth the greater the pres
sure of the nlr, nnd the more of It he
nbsorbs in a given time. Hie blood be
comes aerated like soda water In a si
phon. Reducing the pressure Is equiv
alent to pressing the lever of the siphon.
The nlr bubbles out.
At 200 feet down a diver should not
remain more thnn 12 minutes at one time
reckoned from tho time he leaves the
siirfaco till he begins to ascend, nnd he
should make six hnlts on his way up,
his time for nscendlng being not less
thnn hnlf an hour. If for some pressing
reason he should rcmnln down nt this
depth for an hour, he should take not less
than four hours to come up. When a
diver Is brought to the surfnee too quick
ly nnd Is found to. have collapsed, he
should be Instantly sent down ngnln,
cruel though It seems. An alternative Is
to ihut him up In a big steel cylinder
containing compressed air, thus Imitating
the under-witer conditions. Then, grad
uallj, tho pivssure can be reduced.
OF SEIZING PARIS,

KILL GERMANS BY
SCORES, IS BELIEF
Spanish Correspondent De
tails Dream of War Lord
and Reproduces Alleged
Proclamation of Triumph.
PARIS, Sept. 25.
Gomez Cnrlllo, the Paris correspondent
of the newspaper Liberal, of Madrid, de
clares that he has It on Indisputable
authority that the plan of Emperor Wil
liam, after taking Paris, was to capture
President Polncate, the members of the
French Ministry, the British nnd Rus
sian Ambassadors, the presidents of the
Senate and Chamber of Deputies and
nil the bank directors; then plnce an em
bargo on the Bank of France, nnd, finally,
to detain numerous prominent statesmen,
b.inkers nnd authors, a list of whom was
compiled at the German Embassy before
the Gcrmnn armv wan mobilized.
This accomplished an army of 6fO,0
was to keep order In eastern and northern
France, while 25 army corps were thrown
against Russia. The German plan wu
to have an army Irt Rarla and another In
Petrojtrad by the middle of September or
the nrst of October.
Tho Spanish correspondent adds:
"So confident was the Kfllser of Ger
man victory at the battle of the Marne
thnt he drew up a message to his peo
ple before the end of the struggle"
The following Is alleged to be a rough
draft nf the tiroelamallon:
"Thanks to the help of Almighty nod,
thanks to the Empetor, who Is the fa
ther of our armies; thanks to the heroism
of the Immortal, Invincible army this day
Is clven to in conclusive victory, such
as we had a right to expect as worthy
sons of Paladins, who created and main
tained our glory. Before the magnitude
of our vletory, after a struggle of the
biggest armies the world has even seen,
German hearts may well be transported
with noble pride. History has already
Inscribed upon Its memorial tablets the
date before which all others pale."

A possible explanation of the terrible
slaughter among the Germans has been
furnished by n prominent American, long
resident In Pails and widely acquainted
In Government circles.
A dispatch describes an entire company
of Prussian Infantry lying dead as if sur
prised by the lire; officers with playing
cards In their hnnds ; a group of GO dead
lying around a haystack; a trench a mile
and n quarter In length, beyond the
Ourcq River, filled with dead for Its
whole length, and on none of these
corpses was there the slightest mark of
a bullet or piece of shell.
It was suggested that the Germans
might -have been killed by tho shock of
tho explosion ; but tho American referred
to is Inclined to believe that In reality
the dnmago was done by shells filled with
a new explosive Invented by Eugene
Turpln, the Inventor of melinite, which
liberates deadly gases that asphyxiate all
within rnngo of the shells.
At the beginning of the war the Paris
newspapers mentioned a new explosive
of Turpln'H Invention which had Just been
tried out, and predicted that It would an
nihilate whole regiments. Bombs charged
with it were dropped from aeroplanes
upon a field containing several hundred
Miecp, and, according to the report, all
the animals were killed by the fumes.
So deadly wns this explosive that tho
French Government at first hesitated to
use It on the ground that the slaughter
wmuiii ne too lorriDlc.
Some of the Paris papers said at th-it
time that If the Germans ever attacked
the city thero would be unheard-of
slaughter; so appaicutly It was supposed
thnt these shells which, presumably, are
u.iru in me ,f-miiiimeier field guns
would be reserved is a lust resort for the
defense of the capital. But now. accord
ing to the theory, the French have at last
overcome their humanitarian scruples and
decided to uso tho shells.
Military explosives which liberate dead

writers, chlof among them H. G. Wells,
who in one of his earlier novels. "The
