The steamer Beljrio has arrived at Saa
Francisco with fall details of the recent
Chinese riots. A mob drove all the for
eigners out of Chinkiang. The British Con
sulate was burned and the American looted.
One foreigner is missing. Several persons
had narrow escapes.
San JFrakcisco, March 9. The steam
j ship Belgic, which arrived here this morn
ing from Hong Kong and Yokohama, brings
the first detailed adrices ot the recent anti
European riots at Chinkiang. Chinkiang
is a ruin. It has had many vicissitudes
from the time when the first foreign resi
dents lived in junks on the north shore of
By and by a concession was laid ont,
houses built and the north shore abandoned,
much of the land there being washed away
by the river. Gradually it became a thriv
ing community with the belief that it would
become the terminus of the Peking Bail way
and would supplant Shanghai.
AIT EXCITED SIOB.
The trouble began, it is claimed, in a
street row in which a Chinaman was
knocked down by a policeman. Tnis ex
cited the mob and their first act was to de
stroy the police station. Then they made
for the British Consulate, where a Chinese
Inspector, who has not since been seen, is
believed to have taken refuge. On the
way they fired three loreigu houses. The
Chinese General in command sent 300 men
to protect the Consulate.
As soon as the mob appeared the soldiers
capitulated. Some fled and the rest joined
the mob. The Consul's wife fled barefoot
with her children from the back door of the
Consulate, while the mob, aided by the. sol
diers, sacked and burned evervthing. The
missionaries' houses and a chapel nearly
shared the same fate, while the British Con
sul himself was twice in imminent danger of
OUE CONSULATE LOOTED.
The American Consulate was looted and
more houses were burned. The residents
took refuge on hulks and the mob tried to
follow them, but the bridges were raised.
The Viceroy telegraphed the British Consul
that he was sending 2,000 soldiers to restore
The foreign residents who fled to the
hnlcs stationed in the river subsequently
went on board a merchant steamer and were
taken to Shanghai. One foreigner is re
ported missing. General Jones, the Ameri
can Consul, and British Consul Mansfield
remained at Chinkiang under the pro
tection of a British gunboat, but sent their
families to Shanghai.
Among the foreign buildings burned were
a British Consulate, the British Marshal's
house, the Baptist Chapel and the houses
of two missionaries, a Kev. Mr. Hunnex
and Bev. Mr. Bryant The "United States
Consulate and the Methodist Chapel were
BUNKING FOE MFE.
The wife of the American Consul had to
run for her life, accompanied by her chil
dren, being pursued to the river by the
rioters. The riot broke out again on
Wednesday afternoon. "When General I
Kennedy reached Chinkiang he had the
American flae raised at the United States
Consulate. The British ship Mutine ar
rived on Thursday and fired a salute to the
British flag. Within five minutes after the
firing of the first gun, the Chinese in the
settlement had fitd in all directions.
The United States steamship Omaha has
been recalled from Corea and gone to
Chinkiang direct The North China Daily
The chief lesson learned from this outbreak
is that it will not do to believe that foreigners
are in absolute security at any of the treaty
ports, fcnch incidents as haopened at Chink
iang may occur at any momemt at any of the
ports and every port should be within easy
reach of a man-of-war. The Chinese Govern
ment Hill have to pay full compensation for
the damage done. It is no kindness to the Chi
nese to withdraw the gunboats for fear of
wounding their sensibility; for. in any event
like this, the loss falls ultimately on the Gov-
TEASS OF THE EMPEEOE.
It is feared that the accessions of the
young Emperor will be accompanied by a
recrudesence of anti-foreign feeling, as he is
under the influence of a tutor who is known
to be a violent reactionarv.
The following details o'f the death of Ad
miral Chandler, United States navy, are
learned. He arrived at Hong Kong Febru
ary 8 with the Marion, accompanied bv his
wife and daughter. On February 11 he
called on the Governor, and on the way was
seized with a fit of apoplexy. His symptoms
at first did not seem to be serions, and he
finished his call. On -returning to his hotel
he gradually lost consciousness during the
afternoon, and expired at 9.15 P. m.
There is no news from the 14 missing men
belonging to the wrecked ship Anglo-India,
and it is feared that they were lost The
men who succeeded in landing from the
wreck were stripped naked and stoned by
the natives. The Governor beheaded three
of the plunderers and had their heads stuck
on poles as a warning to others.

There is a heavy exodus of people to Da

10,000,000 acres of Sioux land. Every west
bound tram over the Chicago, Milwaukee and

towns are full of strangers, and more coming
from every direction.

We herewith present a side-view of the Spring
Silk.Hat, than which there has not been a nat
tier shape out for lo these many seasons.
As will be perceived, the unsightly bell which
imparts to silk hats such a heavy look has
given way to the welcome innovation of a
slightly taper crown; a change which will be
truly appreciated by the youne men.
For the portly or middle-aged gentlemen we
carry a special block. The same being slicht

variety which we carry enables us to suit the

Of their new styles of Newmarkets, Beaded Wraps, Shoulder Capes, Jackets, Jerseys, Waists, Shawls, Fichus, Children's Dresses, etc., should attract every lady in both cities. For months past weliave been preparing for this event, and now we are ready"
ready in all the word implies. No labor or expense were spared in our efforts to procure for the ladies of Pittsburg the grandest and finest stock of Spring Garments ever shown west of the Allegheny mountains. Unlike other local concerns, we did not
confine our purchases to a few New York houses. THE WORLD WAS OUR MARKET. As a matter of fact, ours was the only Pittsburg house that sent its buyers direct to the fashion centers of Europe. London, Paris, Berlin and Vienna were visited by
our representatives, and the choice productions of the most celebrated manufacturers were secured in each city. The home market, too, received its full share of attention, and was made to contribute the best specimens of American art, taste and ingenuity.
And, now, ladies, we invite you to come in and see the result of our labor. With all due regard to the Pittsburg dry goods stores, it must be confessed that they must take a back seat away, away back, when comparing their limited assortments with
Kaufmanns' mammoth stock a stock representing a cash value of over 100,000, and embracing every style sanctioned by fashion. As to prices, it stands to reason that Kaufmanns, having purchased on such an extensive scale and having paid CASH'DOWN
for every garment, are in a position to undersell every house in both cities. Read our special opening attractions below:
