, SHANGHAI , Aug. G.-At a crowded meet-
( ( lug today of the European : residents of this
city speeches condemning the acton of the
Chlnee authorities In the case of the mas-
lere of missionaries at Who I Han , near Ku
Cheng on Thursday last , were made and a
re.oluton adoptcll to appeal directly to the
guropem : ! ovprnnentB against the outrage.
Thl resolutIon also rererrell to the Inadequate
S manner In which China has dealt with the
IJerpetrators ) of former outrages.
The Chinese mlnlsler at Ku.Cheng , waited
for the completion oC the massacre before
appearing upon the scene. There are 1,000
90ldler at Ku . Cheng. It Is therefore absurd
to say the authorltlos could not have stopped
the massacre , which .as evidently carefully
and secretly organized. The American mission -
I10n at Shanghai , near Hankow , has b en
destroyed , and the missionaries arc tUgitlVo3.
The American coniil has advised the mis-
I10naries In adjacent provinces to retire .
Some of the speakers at today's meeting dc-
dared lint ( they have lost confidence In the
diplomats at Peking. United States Minister
Denby and British Minister N. n. O'Connor
are being cspeclaly denounced. The Americans -
cans desire a special commissioner under
United States Consul , Ierlgan to Inquire Into
thE Outrages In Sze.Chuen
LONDON , Aug. -At the Chinese legaton
here I ts stated , that no information ha
been receiCd regarding the laS5acre of missionaries -
sionaries near I\u.Cheng beyond the meager
, Ic statement that the killed or wounded , are I
f at Wha.Sang .
, -l 'ho correspondent of the Times at Sbanp- I
hal says the missionaries killed at Ku.Cheng
were lurdered by an organized baud of
eight vegetanIami The c'respommdemmt says :
The women begged for their lives , promising
to yield their property and valuabIe . but
the leaders or the hllil shouted out order
to kill them outnigimt ; A corrected list or
the victims Is as follows :
MISS LENA 1111511 , burned In the he:11 :

IIUFFALO . Aug. G.-Samuel Gracy of this
S place , hate United States consul at oo.Chow ,
China was interviewed today on the re-
ported massaero at Ku-Cheng. Mr. Gracy
said : "Ku-Cheng. the place mentioned In

Fug-Kion province Ibolt ninety miles above

Is entirely beyond the protection of Amer-

hence beyond the protecton oC foreign gun-

and exceedingly super ttous amid easily Im-

thoriies In the district at the tmo gives
cause for much anxiety for American missionaries -
