Shortly before l) o'clock a naval of
ficer was sent to tlio palace square
with another message for Sayid Klin

surrender In accordance with tho
terms of the ultimatum, and again
notifying him that the palace In which
ho hud ban leaded himself would bo

Say Id replied that ho would illo
Rooner than Mirrcudcr. His answer
was conveyed to Admiral Itnwson and
tho llrltlsii consul gcner.il, ami the
crews of the ships, whleh hud been
prepared for action the day before,
were sent to quarters.
All) o'clock the llngshlp signalled
the Uaccoou, Thrush and .Sparrow to
begin tiring and a moment later the
vessels opened lire with their heaviest
guns. Ten minutes later they had
torn gical gnpen in the palace, scatter
lng death und confusion among its de
fenders, dismounting some of the guns
ashore and putting to (light the gun
ners handling thu pieces The lire of
tho wurshlp'. was admirably directed
and siuoko was soon t.een lo bo issuing
from several parts of tho pnlaee. Dur
ing this time the St. (Joorgo ami tho
I'hilomon were held in icsorve,
although they occasionally plumped a
shell into tho enemies camp, adding
to the dismay of its defenders.

Tho Kaccoon, Thrush and Sparrow
kept up tho bombardment until '.:M
o'clock, when the palace was tumbling
in ruins and large rents had been
made in tlio barrleadu of Sayid's fol
lowers. Tho latter, however, an
swered tho lire of tho warships with
great gallantry and did not stop llrlng
until, in response to tlio llagship's sig
nal of "Cease tiring," the guns of tlio
warships stopped showering shot ami
shell ashore. The losses of the eueiuy
arc not known, bt.t it is certain that
several hundred were killed or
wounded, especially among tlio de
fenders of the palace proper.
During the bombardment, tho sul
tan's armed steamer Glusgow opened
flro on tliu Hritlsh warships, tint
few well aimed shells from the heavy
guns of tho Kaccoon and n shot or
two from the four-Inch guns of tho
Sparrow crushed through nnd through

Soon after the palace caught lire and
the walla ami roof wero sent flying by
the shell of tho warships. Ssyld
Khalld and Said Sayles.eomtiiandsr ot
the usurping sultun's army, escaped
with a number ot their leading fol
lowers through tho back part of the
palace to the German consulate, where
they asked for protection, which was
accorded lo them.
Shortly ufter 10 o'clock, in response
to slgnnls from tho flagship St. lleorge,
reinforcements of marines nnd suitors
were sent ashore from the llrltlsh

insurgents, collecting the dead and
attending to the wounded was com

wero securely corralled by the ma
rines and blue jackets thu latter
were ordered to try to distinguish the

in spite of the efforts of the sailors to

unnumbered thousands tilled the

A reception was held for two hours
in tho hotel parlors in tho afternoon,
when Mr. und Mrs. llryan shook hands
with n constant line ot callers, which
still stretched along half a block out
side thu building when the doors were
closed upon the lust comers.
Mr. llryan was escorted to the hull
by tho "Cleveland Democracy," the
city's oldest party organization, nnd
by ward clubs hearing torches. Tho
line of mnrcli was along half a mile of
Main street, crowded almost as thick
ly ns was tho hull, und red lire and

to control the audience, und swarm
ing down to the front, several hun
dred men took possession of the seals
reserved for the clubs which escorted
Mr. llryan said, among other things:
"We propose n financial policy. Our
opponents proposo nothing. Without
during to defend the gold standard,
without daring to set a time when
you shall escape It, they preach tho
doctrine of 'grin and bear it,' and
offer no hope to tho human ruce. Wo
ask for the free coinage of silver at
the ratio of 10 to I. Wo have had It
in thu past, and wu ask that thu
American peoplu shall do their own
legislating for themselves without
waiting for the aid or consent of any
other nation, mid wo have had it In
tho past. Wo believe that tho frco
and unlimited coinage of silver lit 10
to t will maintain tlio parity between
gold and silver.
"And right here let me call atten
tion to something which I havo
learned since I came Into your city.
I um told that some of your mer
chants, in order to give tin object les
son to the people, have been offering
to furnish Mexieuti dollars for oil
cents as part of the change when you
buy goods. Mv friends, let me give
von an opportunity to test tho sincer
ity of these people. Let me give you
a suggestion. They tell you that If
we had the freu coinage of silver that
the American dollar would be as little
us tho Mexican dollar Is now. They
tell you that if wu bad thu freo coin
age of silver, silver will not rise in
value. Let tne give you n suggestion
by which you can test them. When
ever u uiiifi offers you a Mexican dol
lar for f.o cents, you take it. and then
take It to your savings bank nml ask
them If they will tttko it on deposit
for .10 cents and give you a written
iigroi'inont to give you tt Mexican dol
lar the next dav after the inaugura
tion ot tho next president.
"Our opponents havo said that the
soldiers who aro receiving pensions
must bo protected against tho frco
coiuiigu of sliver. They would havo
us believe thut theso financiers who
are insisting upon tho go?d standard
are Insisting upon it for fear the sold
'ers drawing a pension may suffer by
the abandonment of tlio gold stand
ard. They forgot that tlioso who wero
soldiers remember the times wo hud
during the wui;thoy forgot that these
boldlcrs wero old enough to know
something of legislation; they forgot
that these soldiers know that tho
financiers who are today pleading tho
cuuso of tho soldier who wns offering
Ills life for his country ami receiving
his pav In greenbacks whllo these
same financiers were muklng their
bonds payable in coin, although they
did not light themselves. (Applause.)
And 1 am not willing to believe that
they are any more considerate of the

rlble tragedy was discovered this
morning at tho homo of Chnrles W.
Green, traveling passenger agent of
tho Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago nml
SU Louis railway, 1 o "Ilig "l-'our'
line, in this city, 010 West Thirty
It was the murder of thrco children
by their mother and her suicide. Theso
are thu dend:
Mrs. Charles W. Green.
Willie Green, 13 years old.
Charles W. Green, jr., tl years old.
Mary Green, G years old.
Mr. Green has been in ill health for
some mouths and has been in the West
in search of health. He left home a
week ago Inst Monday with Mr. Lynch,
nssistant general passenger agetit of
the lllg Pour.
The homo Is a two-story brick
facing tho north on tho corner
ot Penu street and almost within
tho shadow of thu college of tho
ltedemptorist fathers. Last Tuesday
evening neighbors saw Mrs, Green on
tlio porch and the children at their
play lu the yard. That was the last
seen of them alive. Since Wednesday
morning the quiet of the house anil
the entire absence of tho family have
been a mystery.
This morning Andres Anderson, a
neighbor, climbed In one of the whi
tlows. The sight caused him to reel
and almost fall from thu ladder. On
a bed the foot of which was not three
feet from tho window, lay two dead
children eoveied with black and
Lying diagonally across the narrow
hall was the body of Mrs. Green, clad
in a night dress, which was open at
the throat, disclosing her white throat
and gauze undervest. In plain sight,
just inside the door, lav the body of
her younger t-on, Charles, with a
wound in his right forehead.
All four had been killed in the samo
manner, n ball lu the brain through
the right temple.
It Is dltllciilt to fix positively tho
motive for tho tragedy. It Is most
likely that Mrs. Green had bccoino
temporarily insane. Shu was of a
highly uervou; temperament and sho
had worried gtcatly over her hus
band's ill health
