London, Aug. 7. Archdeacon Wolfe
cables from Poo-Chow saying that the
Chinese soldiers sent to protect the
mission at Ku-Cheng broke into and
plundered It. lie adds that no reliance
can be placed upon the Chinese authori
ties. Washington, Aug. 7. (Minister Yang
Yu, of China, and his secretaries,
Messrs. Itoo and Chung, have returned
to Washington to take any action that
may be requisite In connection with the
reported massacres of missionaries and
the destruction of American and Eng
lish missionary property In China. The
period of their vacation at the water
ing places was about over, but the
shocking character of the reports and
the otIU'ial action, likely to be taken by
the powers doubtless expedited their
Mr. Yang Yu follows his usual policy
of declining to discuss publicly a sub
ject which may Involve diplomatic
questions. Yet In view of the wide pub
licity given to the reports of massacres,
the minister authorized his olllclal in
terpreters toexpresshls profound regret
at the reports. Thus far there Is a
meagemess of offlcial information and
the minister hopes that the later and
fuller reports will modify the severity
of the unolllclal reports which have
come to the press.
In any event he expresses the fullest
confidence that the central government
at Pekln will do everything In its power
toward humane and ample action. He
is very grateful that the reports do not
disclose any Americans among those
stated to be killed.
Activity nt tho Legation.
There was much activity at the Chi
nese legation this morning on the re
turn of the minister. It could not be
learned, however, that Mr. Yang Yu
expected to visit the state department
to make any representations. It Is
said that If any demands the made by
the I'nited States they would go
through our minister at Pekln. and
there Is no information of such de
mands. It is stated positively, how
ever, that the Chinese gvernment has
not yet made any offlcial communica
tion to the United States assuring re
paration and future protection to
American citizens and DroDertv In
It is the feeling among the Chinese
officials here that the secret societies
of Southern China are at the bottom
of the present trouble. The central
government at Pekln is said to be ready
and anxious to keep these societies In
check, but there Is difficulty In dealing
with them owing to their remoteness
from the center of government. Should
It be established, as the reports in
dicate, that any officials have connived
at the uprisings they will be dealt with
very severely. The government holds
these officials strictly accountable for
order, and on a previous uprising the
officials were degraded, although they
had no . direct participation In the
In the present case the massacres
may call for much more severe treat
ment, and It Is said that the responsible
persons will be made to suffer mply.
It Is pointed out, however, that mob
uprisings are liable to occur in any
country, and that so far as China Is
concerned the central government will
earnestly exert all Its resources to sup
press and punish such mob destruction.
(ircat Hrltnin Anticipated.
The United States anticipated Oreat
Britain In tsHng the most energetic
steps for tihe protection of the Ameri
can missionaries' In China.
The Injustice of the critlsms that have
been uttered In some quarters upon the
alleged Indifference of United States
Minister Denby Is fully shown by a
mall d if patch that has just come to the
state department from the minister. It
is dated toward the close of June, and
shows that Mr. Denby had made a
sweeping and peremptory demand upon
the Chinese government, similar to that
made yesterday by the British minister
to Peking for the fullest protection for
all Americans living In China; for re
dress for the depredations committed
upon their property and persons and
finally, for the capital punishment of

of nervous prostration, but today she
appeared bright and happy and talked
cheerfully with her friends. She was
dressed In black and wore a heavy veil.
One feature of the case that Is attract
ing considerable attention Is the fact
that the law In force in the District of
Columbia gives as the minimum sen

Disable Torpedo Knots.
Washington. Aug. 7. There has- been
received at the navy department a
sample or steel, three-fourths of an
Inch In thickness, which had been
pierced by n rifle 'bullet of a caliber loss
than that of the present army rifle,
or about .30. The sample Is Interesting.
In that it shows that the torpedo boats
may be rendered useless by good allots
from such rifles.
The distance at which the steel
sample was pierced was obout 200 feet.
A torpedo's boat armor, her boiler and
explosives might easily be pierced at
this distance ,or before she could make
her projectile dangerous to a ship. The
bullet was of steel and pointed. It
made a remarkably clean hole In the

fice. Precisely at 10 o'clock the procession
of clergy emerged from the vestry and
Hied into the sanctuary. The celebrant

arily. J. Washington Logue. of Phila

ommended that the lecturing system
should be extended as much as pos
sible by the loe:il bramher. of the union,
that temperance literature be dissem
inated, widely In every place, and that
total abstinence societies be started In
President Clcary's Kcpnrt.
President Cleary then read his report.
After dwelling at some length on the
objects of the society he snld:
'It Is not the sin of drunkenness alone
that our grand organization Is pre
pared to combat, Our far-reaching pur
pose Is to aid In correcting the foolish
drinking customs of, society, to make
ptactlces of total ahstlnence popular,
nnd to brand with odium the indefensi
ble and dangerous social customs tihat
are a stumbling block to the weak and
a temptation to till. The Joyous ac
claim to wmVh the people of every class
and creed greet our work today, at Its
Jubilee rejoicings, Is gratifying testi
mony to tihe success It has gained.

Atlanta, Oa., Aug. 7. 'Speaking on
the condition of Central America Oen
eral P. IM. 11. YoutiK, United States
minister to Guatemala ami Honduras,
who is here on leave, said In reference
to the proposed federation of all the re
publics: "I believe thut n large majority of
the intelligent patriotic citizens of Cen
tral America would like tn see a union
of all those republics. They believe
that such a federution would be greatly
to the advantage of each and all of
them, and at some time all of these
governments .have expressed them
selves as In favor of such a union.
"They have hnd several conventions
on the subject In the past, but for some
reason they have never been able to
reach a practical result. Before any
agreement can be reached each must
be willing to concede somothinir. each
must be (willing to transfer certain of
Its powers to the federal government.
I believe that at this time all 6t the
presidents of the Central American re
publics are patriotic, conservative men
The government of the United States
hns but one seittiment for these Re
publics, and that is one of affection. It
hopes and wishes that each of "them
shall be permitted to pursue Its happi
ness in Its own way, uninterrupted by
foreign powers. The people are In
tensely American In their sentiments
and are great believers In the United
States, modeling their government as
much as possible after our own. Their
population Is very similar In character
that Is, one state with the others;
they have much the fame soil and cli
mate, and It would seem that they have
a common destiny. Still it Is, of course,
the policy of this government to hold
hands off and wish them Ood-speed In
the working out of their salvation In
their own way."

The olllclal figures of the treasury

this does not show the withdrawal of
