The Mohammedan troops are armed with machine guns and re- peating rifles. London, June 15. Observers at Shanghai and Tien Tsin think there is a great deal more trouble ahead for the concert of powers than merely reach- ing Peking with men. Serious disturbances are taking place at Yung Nan Fu and Meng Tze, as -well as at other points at a considerable distance from the capital. The whole Chinese empire seems to be in a. ferment. The intentions of the empress dowager are still equivocal, with a balance of testi- mony on the side of a determination to expel the apyropriators of a part of her country or to lose her dynasty in the attempt. While Admiral Seymour, with the international relief column, is forcing his way to Peking, several of the pow- ers are arranging largely to reinforce their details at Tiea Tsin. Germany purposes sending men. Great Britain sent 600 from Hongkong, antl 400 will go Sunday. Italy has ordered to hold themselves in readiness. Russia, according to a dispatch of Wednesday, had tried to bring her force at Tien Tsin up to Thus the combined forces at Tien Tsin will probably soon be about men. Japanese Legation Burued. Shanghai, June 15. A report has reached here from Tien Tsin to the effect that a toreiga legation has been burned and that a minister has been killed, 'iiie names, it is added, are withheld pending a confirmation of the report It is further rumored here that the international relief parties are ex- periencing great difficulties in regard to provisions and water. It is believed that the delay has been caused by the fear that the force was insufficient to overcome the opposition that might be encountered, and thus precipitate a massacre at the capital. The Japanese have sent two more cruisers and have landed 300 additional troops. A report has reached here that the British, American and Japanese min- isters in Pelting favor the restoration of Emperor Kwang Su, but that the French and Rnssiaa ministers insist upon the powers talcing charge of Chi- na. It is further reported that the re- spective divisions of the country have already been assigned. The belief is that the -withdrawal of the British ship from the Yang Tse Kiang is an indica- tion of Great Britain's disclaimer of the "sphere theory.' Later reports from Tien Tsin confirm the news of the burning of the Japanese legation, but the rumor that a minister has been murdered is not confirmed. Fifteen hundred Russians, with four guns, have arrived outside of Peking. This makes Russians who nave landed. Put On Your Thinking Cap.

PORTO RICO Held as a Foreign Couutry Iu a-Ju- dicial Decision. New York, June June 6, 1809, J. H. Goetz Company impm-tad from Porto Rico into the pert of New York 100 bales of tobacco, upon which duty "was assessed at 35 cents per pound, in accordance with the Dingley law. The importer protested, claiming that the merchandise was not subject to duty, because Porto Rico was not a foreign country, and the case taken to court. J Judge Townsend in rendering his de- cision said: "Before the war with j. Spaan Porto Rico was a foreign coun- try. It did not cease to be a foreign t country when it by the military forces of the United States. The conquest of Porto Rico under au- thority of the executive made it ours by military title. But the president's conquests do not enlarge 1.13 boun- i daries of this Union, nor extend the operation of our institutions and laws beyord the limits before assigned to tlfWB by the executive power." Verdict of Homicide. St. Louis, June coroner's inquest over the bodies of strikers and a citizen killed Sunday by members of the sheriff's posse comitatus concluded with a verdict of homicide. Witnesses testified that Deputy Sheriff Marsh shot Frederick Bohne, the citisen in question, but disagreed as to the dep- uty's provocation for shooting. A sen- sational feature of the inquest was the conflicting statements made by wlt- neses as to whether Police Lieutenant Stack ordered the deputy sheriffs to fire on the Several of the dep- uties testified that he ordered the posse guard to shoot, while Stack declared he did all in his power to prevent the deputies from firing. The disappear- ance of Deputy Sheriff Marsh was a startling development at the inquest. It is believed that Marsh has left the city. ERS'ffiTIREMENT Effected Without the Loss of a Man or Gun.

STRANGE JEALOUSY Moves a- Keiituckiuii to Kill His Adopted Daughter and Himself. Louisville, June 15. Moved by "'range jealousy of an adopted daugn- ter, Thomas Bach, 50, shot and killed 18-year-old Mollie Btich because she was secretly married four weeks ago to Newton Thome, a young farmer. The tragedy occurred at the Bach farm, 11 miles from Louisville, on the Tay- lorsville pike. Mollie Bach was adopt- ed 12" years ago by the Bach family and given their name. Thomas Bach, al- though he is a married man, was in- tensely jealous of the girl, and_ he had told her, it is said, that he would kill her if she ever got married. When she showed him the license for her mafriage to Thome, which occurred four weeks ago and had been kept a secret until now, Bach immediately grabbed a pistol and started for the girl. She darted through the front door of the house, but he caught her aad shot her five times. With the last bullet in the pistol he shot himself near the heart. Fighting Indians.
