Hankau, China—The Chinese rebels
are in complete control of a territory
hundred square
‘miles in the northern part of Hunan
province, and a war of extermination
‘is being waged on all native Chris
tians, according to reports reaching
The mobs have destroyed all tele-
graph wires, according to authentic
information, as part of the prepara-
tions for the anti foreign uprising
called for Sunday.
The disorders are spreading north-
ward rapid: y, and in the path of the
rebels a score of villages lie sacked
or smoking. The situation at Yi-Yang,
where the officials were driven out by
the mob, is more serious and the torch
is being applied right and left, ac
cording to information, and a third of
the towns has been destroyed.
The reports say that, as in the at:
tack on foreigners at Changsha, the
places to be destroyed are selected
carefully by the mob leaders, who des

Advices from Chaun-Chia show that
the first reports minimized the dam-
age, the portion of the city burned
last week being larger than was at
first believed here.
At Nankin signs of unrest are grow:
ing worse daily, and a general upris
ing more serious than that at Chang
sha is feared.
James F. McNally, the American
consul, and Vice Consul John K. Davis
have taken steps to protect Americans
and their property. The crowds al
ceady gathering for the exhibition
there, to open June 5, are being close-
ly watched by the government.
‘It is reported that the rebels will
bring in a large force in the guise of
London, England—Messages receiv-
ed by the London headquarters of sev-
2ral missionary societies in China say
that anti-foreign demonstrations
{hroughout China are increasing and
that a widespread outbreak before au-
tumn {is inevitable.
- The situation is so serious that the
heads of the missionary movement are
tonsidering the advisability of aban-
loning their remote missions and con-
tentrating near the coast where for
eign ships can protect them. The
latest outbreaks reported are at
Chuan-Chia, a short distance north-
west of Changsha, where there was
serious trouble and at Yi-Yang. At
the latter place the trouble is more
local than anti-foreign, and the houses
of many natives have been burned.-
Missionaries report that no depend-
ence can be placed in the Chinese
troops, as they usually join the rioters
whom they are sent to suppress.

tle Within the City Limits.
Washington, D. C.—Severe fighting
between the trcops of President Mad: |
riz and those of the Provisional Pres-
ident Estrada of the revolutionists,
took place early on the morning of
May 30 near Bluefields, Nicaragua, ac
cording to a message from United
States Consul Moffat at Bluefields.
Many were killed and wounded and
two rundred prisoners were taken by
the Estrada troops.
‘Consul Moffat’s troops, which for
several weeks have been before Blue-
fields to the westward, again began
their attacking operations.
The forces attacking the city wera
those of the government under Genenr-
al Lara, who, Mr. Moffat said, in the
last few days had repeatedly attacked
the revolutionary forces of General Es-
trada, but had been repulsed each
time. The government troops during
these attacks sustained heavy losses,
the Consul reported.
Government Trocps Starving.
The fighting has taken place quite
near Bluefields amd the insurgents, be-
sides holding their own with the at-
tacking troops - and repulsing them
each time, captured 200 men of the
Madriz troops. These soldiers when
brought into Bluefields by the insur-
gents informed General Estrada that
the government troops under General
Lara were starving.
The Madriz steamer Venus has not
been permitted-to bombard the trench-
es back of Bluefields. This would
have necessitated firing over the city,
and following the order to this effect
by the commander of the United
States warship Paducas, the American
gunboat prepared for action, although
the necessity for this did ny: arise.
Boston's Ex-Mayor and Ex-Postmaster
Does Not Long Survive Defeat
and Humiliation.
Boston, Mass.—George Albee Hib-
bard, mayor of Boston for the years
1908 and 1909 and postmaster of the
city for seven years preceding, died
at his home here Sunday of a broken
heart, although the physicians give
the cause simply as heart disease.
Ex-Mayor Hibbard was a candidate in
February for re-election but in a threes
cornered fight received less than
2,000 votes in a total of nearly 100,
000. The bitter humiliation sent him
to his bed. He rallied somewhat but
when the new mayor sent in the ex-
mayor's name to be city collector, but
he was unanimously rejected by the
civil service commission which under
the new charter must pass cn all ap-
pointments. The last blow killed him.
Mr. Hibbard was a weak mayor but
one of the cleanest of citizens and a
man universally respected personally.
He was about 45 years old.

Noted German Bacteriologist Suc.
cumbs to lliness of the Heart.
Baden-Baden—Prof. Robert Koch,
the famous bacteriologist, died here
May 27th from a disease of the heart.
He was born at Klausthal, Hanover,
December 11, 1943.
Prof. Koch became distinguished as
an investigator of micro-organisms,
but probably gained most renown as
the discoverer of the bacilli of tuber-,
culosis and cholora. He was graduat-
ed in 1866 from the University of
Goettingen, and while a practitiener
at Wollstein began his researches in
bacteriology. His first writings, cov:
ering investigation of anthrax and the
aetiology of traumatic infective dis-
eases, marked an epoch in medicine
and placed bacteriology on a scientific

tuberculosis. The following year he
was sent by the German government
to India and Egypt to study cholera
and discovered the comma bacillus,
the presence of which is regarded as
an infallible test in diagnosing asiatic
cholera. It was in 1890, at the meet
ing of the International medical con-
gress, that Prof. Koch announced the
discovery of a specific for tuberculosis,
but while his announcement created a
sensation, the medical profession gen-
erally did not accept it as a fact and
subsequently experience did not fully
substantiate the. claims of Koch in
this direction.
Prof. Koch received decorations
from the German and French govern
ments for his discoveries. He visited
the United States in 1908 and attend-
2d the international tuberculosis con-
ference in Philadelphia.
Three Defendants Give Up Fight
When the Government
Clases Case.
New York—The long series of sur
prises in the sugar underweighing con-
spiracy trial culminated in the sudden
closing of the prosecution’s case and |
‘the entering of pleas of guilty by
three of the men on trial. These
three were fellow employes of the
four checkers convicted last winter
for complicity in the frauds on the
Williamsburg docks of the American
Sugar Refining Company. All of them
worked under Oliver Spitzer, the dock
superintendent, also convicted and
sentenced to two years in the Atlanta
penitentiary, whose confession and
pardon and appearance as a govern-
ment witness was the first big sensa-
tion of the present trial.
‘Counsel for the three men who had
lecided to give up the fight—Harry
W. Walker, assistant dock superin:
tendent, and Jean F. Voekler and
Tames Halligan, Jr., checkers—with

some new testimony, announced that
t closed its case. Sentence will be
passed upon them later.

McKinley's Former
firms Secret Told by Depew
in Senate.
Columbus, O.—“Senator Depew is
entirely correct,” said James Boyle,
who was President McKinley’s sec-
retary when Governor of Ohio and
was afterwards sent by him as consul
to Liverpool, while talking of the
declaration of the senator in his
speech in the senate in which he said
President McKinley was forced into
the Spanish war. “President McKin-
ley said to me,” said Boyle, “that ne:
gotiations were in progress that would
have adjusted the Cuban trouble with
perfect satisfaction to the Cubans, to
the United States and with honor to
Spain, but a few hotheads of great in-
fluence in congress, whose names he
mentioned to me, and the yellow news-
papers, aroused such a war sentiment
that he could not withstand it. He
held out as long as he could, knowing
that the war was unnecessary.
“The president told me that, know-
ing that the war was avoidable; and he
had not been able to avoid it, made
he matter the saddest event of his
“I asked the president what tie
plan of adjustment included for Cuba
and he answered without going into
details, that it proposed to give to
Cuba the fullest degree of home rule.

home to vote at the time of his sec-
ond election
Twenty-Seven Men Who Were on
French Vessel Perish as Re-
, sult of Collision.
Calais, France—The French subma-
rine Pluviose was sunk just outside
the bay here in a collision with the
Calais-Dover packet Ville de Calais.
The crew, consisting of the comman-
der, two other officers and 24 men,
were lost.
The catastrophe was due to the
recklessness of the submarine com-
mander in attempting to pass under
packet. He miscalculated the depth
required for this feat, and the subma-
rine struck the steamer and was near-
ly cut in two. She sank like a plum-
Although the sceident occurred in
the full sunlight the captain of the
Ville de Calais failed to see the Plu-
voise, which was maneuvering half
submerged at the time of the accident.
The first the captain knew of the
presence of the submarine was when
the crash came. The packet was bad-
ly damaged and put back to Calais,
after leaving several lifeboat loads of
searchers on the scene to look for
possible survivors from the subma-

to Dover and Calais for assistance

The resolution was introduced by
