SHANGHAI , June 10. No definite news
hag yet been received litre In regard to the
latest report concerning the fate of Ihe mis
sionaries at Cheng Tu , capllal of Ihe province
of Sachuen , who are said lo have been massa
cred. It is known , however , thai serious
rlollng occurred rccenlly al Cheng Tu , bul
affairs there have since been reported quiet ,
although the rioting was spreading In the
country southward.
The reporl of the toial deslrucllon of Ihe
missions of Cheng Tu , Kla Ling and Yoa-
cho-hu has been confirmed. The local officials
refused proltclion lo Iho missionaries unlll
the mob completed the work of demolishing
the buildings. The mission stallons at other
places have been threatened. About twenty
adults , besides n number of children , have
taken refuge at Cheng Tu and Yamen. Vice
roy Ling Is blamed for the affair.
WASHINGTON , June 10. ThelChlneso le
gation has received no news as to Ihe re
ported massacre of all the missionaries In
Cheng Tu , and strong hopes are entertained
that the affair may be less serious than Iho
meager reports Indlcalc. U Is stated at the
legation lhat Cheng Tu Is n large city In the
Interior of China. The people are far re
moved from centers of foreign commerce ,
such as Canton and Shanghai. Recently ,
however , by Ihe Irealy of peace wllh Japan ,
this Interior clly was one of several places
to be opened to foreigners and foreign com
merce This no doubt , It Is stated , has agi
tated the people who have lived by them
selves from time without remembrance. II
Is said that the number of m sslonurles , In
cluding their families , In the entire province
of So Chun , of which Chcni ; Tu Is the capi
tal , must be less than 100 Including ail nation-
alltles The missionaries' headquarters arc ill
Cheng Tu where it Is believed there are nol
exceeding ten missionaries , the resl being
Ecaltcred through the province. But this
estimate is based on the general Informalloii
of Chinese olllclals , as there are no exacl
details of llio cxlenl of Ihe missionary serv
ice Ihrough China
The Tsung LI Yamen soughl lo secure fron
each foreign government a complete 1st ol
the missionaries und their places of service
but this was not given. H Is said that tin
emperor of China und the Tsung LI Yamer
have given every possible protection to tin
missionaries , nllliough II has been found Im
pcsshlo lo guard against mob violence , par
tlcularly nt remote Interior points Tin
Chinese government has asked foreign gov
crnmcnls lo appreciate these dilllctiltles am
has advised that the missions should ba kep
within safe limits , but the zeal of the mis
Blonarlcs has led them to push Inward w th
out fear of results to po nis where Iho Chines :
olllclals have had dililcully In affording ful
Notwithstanding this , the authorities a
Peking have done their utmosl They hav
placed upon Ihe vlcurs of the provinces th
responslbll ty ot prelecting the missionaries
churches elc , the viceroys understanding tha
they will bo degraded If mobs are pcrmtttei
to disturb the missions. As a result , th
viceroys and Ihclr prcfecls or police ar
ncllve In rcslralnlng mcb outbreaks. Th
official gazette of China , recently receive
here , shows that a change has been made I ;
the viceroy at Cheng Tu and that a ne-w on
has Just assumed his duties. This , added t
I Iho agllalton of opening the city to for
clgners , may account for dlslurbanccs , al
though , as already staled , Iho fact that dls

LONDON. June 10. A dispatch to the
Inies from Berlin gives a detailed account
t the address of Prince Bismarck to the
grarluna on Sunday , mention of which was
made In these dispatches Sunday night ,
'rince Bismarck said he was Ignorant of the
Ian of the present legislature. He pcs-
esscd no Influence with and no author ly
ver them He Intimated to his hearers that
t would be very difficult for n man who had
etlred from public 1 fe lo regain an Infiu-
nee of Ihls characler when once he had
ibandoned his position ns a leader. He
trongly denounced Ihe manner In which the
ommerclal treaties had been rushed through
'arllamcnt , and said the money which might
liave been derived from the public revenues
hus carelessly thrown away was urgently
equlrcd for strengthening the German army.
Ie urged the agrarians to take more trouble
nt election time lo relurn genuine represenl-
.lives , men with Interests allied to Ihe volers ,
nol men whose Inlcrests lie chiefly In Ber-
In , among people without an acre of land or
thout a blade of corn to their n tines He
advised the agrarians not to give their votes
.0 any one desirous of becoming a public
minister , not to vote for any one whose wife
ivlshed lo shine In Berlin society. From
people of Ihls characler con.e Ihe burrs who
st ck fasl to ministerial posts. It is useless
o expect them to champion agricultural In
"Let us not , therefore , elect ambitious
persons , " he said , In concluding his address
o the agrarians , "but rather those of our
own flesh and b'ood. Husbandry was the
first born , but It Is not the mosl favored
Irade , because farmers cannel live In Ihe
towns , and consequently they have not much
nfiuence In making the laws. We must
stand shoulder to shoulder against the drones
> vho govern us and who produce nothing but
Prince Bismarck then called upon his
hearers to give Ihrec cheers for Ihe em
peror , "tho first landed propiletor , not only
because he was their first prince and ruler ,
but because he was 'flesh of our flesh , and
blood of our blood ' For this reason he must
feel how the multitude , his most loyal and
pet haps his most burdened subjects , suffer
for his sake.
I could wish for the revival of the old
and noble custom of the reigning prince re
ceiving no salary , but living on his anceslral
lands , thereby remaining in touch with the
husbandmen and with the people of the coun
trj. " said Bismarck. "Well , that Is n pious
wish , but It will not be realized , otherwise
we would apply a similar process to the
ministers also. "
These are the most Interesllng passages In
a significant speech whose chief fealure was
the veiled attack on the government and the
emperor The leference lo "burr" mlnlslers
was cvldcnliy directed at Dr Carlen
Boettlcher , minister of the Interior , and
Count Caprlv I , the former chancellor.

PARIS , June 10. The question of France's
policy In the far cast was revived In the
Chambsr of Deputies today by SI. Mlllcraud ,
the socialist deputy , who protested against
France playing what he termed "Germany's
game. " SI. Sllllcraud was supported by-
many socialist members of the Chamber , who
objecled to the participation of Franco In
the coming festlvllles In couuecllon with
the opening of the Baltic and North Sea
The minister for foreign affairs , SI. Hano-
taux , rcp'leJ amU radical It terru llons , which
were met by centrist cries of "Silence com
munists. " SI. Hanotaux defcnJeJ the
presence of the French squadron at Kiel by
saying the French sailors would represent
not a downtrodden France , but a nation
confident in her strength and rich enough
In glory to dread comparison with no other
povv er.
Adverting to the question of France's
policy In the far easl , M Hanolaux made an
important statement , declaring that oven
had French Interests been less affected than
Ihey were the government would have con
sidered It to be Its imperative duty to Inter
vene Immediately after Russian Interests
wcro threatened Nobody could be blind ,
ho continued , to the dangers of a icversal
of French policy In refusing to support Rus
sia at this Junclure. He believed himself
to be the faithful Interpreler of Iho feelings
of llio country when he telegraphed to St
Petersburg that Franco places her alliance
In Iho first rank of her conslderatlcns , and
the government of Ihe republic was , ihere-
fore , disposed lo support with all possible
efilcacy the views of the Imperial govern
ment concerning the conditions of peace be
tween Chira and Japan.
Continuing his remarks upon the subjecl
of Iho French squadron , he said Ilia Intere-ts
of France , too , justified the attitude adopted
and he po nted out the s tuallon in Egvpt al
1 the present lime as a result of Ihe mistaken
policy of abstention which the French parlla-
IIKIH had foi cod upon Gambetta , who foresaw
the lesult of the evils of the policy of ro-
slralnlng Ihe governmenl from activity so
far as the Suez ca ial was concerned The
recent policy of activity nnd expansion
adopted bv France had lifted her again to
her proper place among the nalons of the
wotUl and had brought about Ihe alliance
wilh Russsia an alliance which had given
Trance the point d appul she longed for. SI
II inotaux concluded by asking for the tin-
eqalvocal support of all Ihe members of the
hamber , for , he tald , a policy of vacillation
would only weaken French prestige abroad
M Florens asked If In return for French
support In the east Russia would ad France
o obtain the freedom of Egypt
M Goblet demanded Ihe publlcallon of Ihe
trealy of alliance with Russia , If one was
In existence
At this point M Rlbot Interposed , saying
"You know well enough we cannot publish
It "
SI. Goblet then continued h s remarks , In
sisting that the visit of the French squadron
lo Kiel was Ihe unfortunate result of the
French co-oporatlon wilh Russia and Ger
many in Ihe far tasl. Frenchmen would
never understand any policy of reapproach-
merit with Germany so long ns the disputed
question of llio provinces of Alsace and Lor
raine remained unsealed
M Rlbot concluled the debate by endorsing
ing all Ihe remarks of SI. Hanotaux The
order of Ihe day approv n the dnclaiatlons
of Ihe go/ernmcnt was then adopted by 36 :
to 103 and amidst loud cheeilns the Cham
her of Depullts adjourned.

SALT LA KG CITY , Utah . June 10. ( Spe
cial Telegram ) Judge Merrltt rendered a de
cision this morning In the Oregon Short Line
receivership case. Ho confirms the appoint
ment of John M. Egan as receiver , but a'-so-
clatcs with him as joint rcccl\er W. 11. Dan-
croft , present general superintendent of the
western end of the Union Pacific pystcm
Judge. Merrltt requires the American Loan
nnJ Trust company to pay all Interest duo on
flMl mortgage bonds , Including the Ham
mortgiges on the Utah Southern lines.
On the nutter of receivers' certificates ths
order Is silent The failure to mention the
certificates Is regarded by attorneys for the
American Laan and Trust company as equiva
lent to a refusal to authorize the Issuance of
filch certificates , as without an cracr from
this court they cannot be made a lien on
Utah linos.
While the appointment of a co-rcceher
had been foreshadow el in these dispatches , it
Is something of a surprise Iti the extent to
which It protects Union Pacific Interests.
The court granted e\cn more than the Union
Pacific asked It has imposed impossible
conditions , according to the trust company ,
by ordering the pajmcnt of defaulted Inter
est , and refusing to authorize certificates
upon which to ralso funds.
While the attorney b refuted to state what
they proposed to do , a represcntallve of the
trust company , who Is kiijwn to speak aulhor-
Itathely , said' "We have stated from the
outset that we would not accept the Utah
lines under a Union Pacific Joint rocelver-
shlp , and we will nut recede from this posi
tion. We will do nothing. We will lca\e
the Utah lines entirely alone. We cannot
take them subject to the Union Pacific re-
cehers , therefore sve will not touch them
We were entitled to a separate recehorship ,
but this Is not such an appointment. The
failure to permit the Issue of receivers' cer
tificates also clones the matter up. We can
not act under the order. '
"Will it net bo somewhat lncon\enlcnt to
operate the lines outside of Utah without en
trance to Ogden ? ' was asked.
"I am not to certain about that At any
ate WP are in as good a position ub the
'nlon Pacific "
Having refused to accept JuJgo Merrill's
ider , there die but two courses loft lo Ihe
ru t company operation of the lines outside
f U'ah , with Pocatello probably as the hcad-
uarteu' , or entire * abandonment of the re-
eivership proceedings It Is believe J that
ho former course will be pumicd and tint
oreclosuro and sale unJer the consolidate 1
lortgago will be pushed The decision Is of
oubtful advantage to the Union Pacific It is
Iven access to Salt Like bjt is shut off from
uttc and Portland , und Is obliged to operate
ie unprofitable lines running poulh from this
Ity All the llnei in Utah will remain under
Jnion Pacific ccntiol , as Judge Merrill's or-
cr becomes Inoperative Ihrough the refusal
f the trust company to accept it.
Tie decision Is not well received by the
usli os ? community , which was anxious for
hort Line headquarters to bo establlshcl
ere and Ihe court Is very warmly crlliclzcd

It was a foicgone conclusion that the
ihort L'ne and Ulah Northern would be placed
ir.der the control of a separate receiver , the
nly hops of Iho Inleresls antagonistic to the
\tnerlcan Loan and Trusl company being lo
ecure a co-receiver who would be fair lo the
Union Pacific , which has now been accom
plished In Ihe appolntmenl of W. II llan-
roft , superintendent of the mountain division
if the Union Pacific
General Manager Dickinson was elated over
he appointment of Mr Bancroft , whom IIP
regards as the one man of nil men to dlrecl
he Interests of the separated property
"Dut I don't believe Mr Efan will accept
he terms of Ihe Iransfer , embo lying as It
Iocs the Ulah Soulhern. a propetly which

feel sallsfied vvilh llio lerms of the order at

company , through Its atlorncys , has fought

and Ihls , coupled wllh the Interesl fealure
of Hie order , which Is along Ihe lines out-
"Incd by Ihe attorneys for the llrst mortgage
nttrcbts , receivers of Ihe Union Pacific and
Oregon Short Line will probably prove loc
much of a load for Ihe receivers lo carry.
"Should Mr. Egan acccpl it will not affec :
ho forces at Union Pacific headquaitera tc
he exlcnt of more lhan Ihlrly men , and a-
for our mechanical forces , Ihey are rediicei
to the minimum. It has been my Idea , how
ever , all the way through thai if two re
celvers were accredited to the properly ant
Uie contenllons of Ihe attornejs for llio fir-i
mortgage and other Interests follow eJ thai
the successor receiver could not conslstentlj
take the property.
"As you have Intimated , Sir Egan wll
now operate the properties In the Eighth am
Nlnlh circuits , " addressing the reporter , "bu
I can ha'dly believe this , as Ogden Is the ke ;
to the situation and II would leave Mr Egai
Iho ends of the line to operate , while tin
great middle woulJ bo operated by Ihe pros
enl receivers , for I take It that Mr. Uancrof
would refuse to take the road If his scnlo
should object to the order. "
There was consl.erablo satisfaction ex
pressed about headquarters when the term
of Judge Merrill's order became known , fo
the majority of the heads of department
felt that Mr. Egan would not take the Shor

William H. Chappie was killed by a shol
that entered his head just above and bhlml
the left car , pass'ng cnllrely Ihrough Ihe
brain and lodging In Iho bone beneath the
right cat.
James Ish has confessed that ho fired thai
Chappie's face shows the marks of povvdoi
burns , proving conclusively lhat the wounds
on his neck and breast were fired at short
As neither of the wounds In the neck nor
the one In the btcist was sufllclent to cause
death at once , and were not necessarily fatal
at all , It Is a fair Inference thai Ihey wera
fired after Chappie had received Ills mortal
hurt , and probably after lie was dead.
These facts , brought out al llio aulopsy > es-

Ilrtt lold by Mrs. Ish. Hut she demolished
that slory herself by telling another to the
effect that the eliols were all fired by her

There Is no longer any doubt that Ish
Illed Chappie. The story that The Dee
ubllshcd jestcrday advancing thai Ihcory
as fully corroborated by the evidence that
as , discovered dm Ing the day , and was fin-
lly and positively piovcn by the confessions
f both Ish and his wife , who decided to tell
t leasl a parl of what they know of the
Illlng of Chappie.
During Ihe early part of the day Ish per-
Isted in maintaining the story he told at Urn
line hu was ai retted , to the effect thai the
cad man had been killed by his wife Hi ! )
vlfo seconded him by giving Iho bume ac-
011 n t of the shooting
In giving the delalls of Iho Iragcdy the
wo not only contradicted each other , but
hemsclves. Ish was especially contradictory
n his statements An an instance , he gave
hrco iliffcrcnt explanations of how lie got
he icvolver which he claimed hla wife had
Hatched from his hand and vvilh which she
lad shot t'happle To one man ho said tlmt
lo took It out of a but can drawer , to an-
Iher lhal he had It In his pocket , and to a
lilrd that he did not have it , but took It
rom the hands of his wire.
Plimlly , In view of thsso conlradicllons
and also of Iho evidence lhat was plainly
minting to the fact thai Mrs. Ish did nol
ire a shol , Ish was taken Into the private
office of Chief Dctcctlvo Haze and asked foi
ho Iruo statement of how the tragedy oc
curred. At first ho atlompled lo maintain
.hat the story he- first told wai true , but Hit
mprobablllly of Iho slory was forced upon
ilm. Then lie Bald lhat when ho entered
lie bedroom Chappie was l > lng on Iho lloor
shot by Mrs. It > h , with Chappie's nwn rc-
iolvcr , and that ho then fired four times al
lilm. It was then shown lo him how It
aggravalcd his guilt If ho shot at a man who
tvas already wounded and not In a position
.o defcnil himself , even If the man had at
tempted to assault his wlfr > . At thai Ish
acknovvlodged lhat he was the man who
killed Chappie.
Ish.aid that on Saturday ho discovered
that his wife had been Intimate with Chap
pie Consequently , when Chappie came to
the houio at 7 o'clock on Sunday evening ,
oslcnhibly lo fix a ECU Ing machine , ho felt
satisfied thai ho came lo meet Mrs. Ish.
The suspicion was fctrenttl oned by Iho evi
dent fact lhat Chappie did not expect to
find him nt home , because when he saw Ish
ho remarked thai ho had called to fix the
machine , but had decided to let It go to the
follow Ing day. Ish Insisted , however , that
ho should do It at once.
After fliupplo waa stated before the ma
chine In tha bedroom Mrs. Ish lold Isli lo go
down lo the cellar for Kindling wood. Ish left
the rtom , but Instead of going Into the ctlhr
