Already Yin Tchang is issuing proclamations offering pardons to all who the rebel standard. Yin Tchang says he- has made JHn- Yang-Chow his temporary headquart- ers and will proceed southward after the arrival of the fourth division of troops. It is stated that the plans of the rebels do not contemplate tbg .fle- structlon of bridges over the Ye'low river. Their object rather is to lure the imperial troops south and bring about an uprising in north j thus placing the imperialists between two fires. The ultimate pur- pose is to make one of the cities on the Han river capital of the empire. The. worst feature of the situation in Shanghai is the stringency of money. Several native banks in Shanghai have suspended payments. A loiin of in new currency cf Nanking sent to the official banks has partially relieved the situ- but business is at a and a crisis is threatened. There are eighteen foreign warships at Hankow and others are proceeding there. Many foreign vessels also are at seaports on the Yangtse-Kiang. The American shins at Hankow are the gunboats Villalohos. Helena and El Ono. The American torpedo boats Barry and Dale are at Shanghai. pastorate.

They expect to be able to furnish this within a few the whole question now hanging on whether it can be shown Richeson was with the girl on the day of her death. The searchlight of investigation is now being thrown on every phase of Richeson's life. Members of his church assert that he chose the sensa- tional in his sermons assailing vice but generally avoiding great Biblical texts. This was displeasing to the older members but his popularity with the younger members and women held him in charge. The silence of Rev. Richeson will be broken tomorrow according to Rev.

THE REAL SELFISH INTEREST What is the motive back of opposition to the project of selling the central fire and police This is something which taxpayers should understand. All those favoring the project will concede the right of any citizen to oppose it for legitimate reasons. It appears thus that practically all of the opposition is coming from the morning organ. Rival bankers are not the but instead are urging it. business property are openly declaring themselves in favor of it. XO ONE HAS YET COME OUT OPENLY OVER SIGNATURE IX OPPOSITION'. Little attention would be paid to the morning organ's opposition except for the t that it has intimated that there are personal or sel- fish reasons on the part of some people for favoring the sale. This sheds en the real situation. It looks very much as if the morning or- being located on Water does not want Market street im- proved. There is the selfish interest. In it is consistent with its past opposing anything that would improve and upbuild the city. If the property is worth so much more than has been bid for why does not someone come forward with a Why was RO higher bid The it is is not equal to that demand- ed for the land now occupied by the Mahala block ruins. Do the people. want it held at such an exorbitant price that no one will buy Would they favor more Mahala block standing year after a dis- grace to the What the city wants is a deal which will mean upbuilding and pro- gress.
