LONDON , Oct. 23. The marquis of Sails-
tmry has demanded the Immediate release
of Sun Yat Sen , the Chinese physician , said
to bo a British subject , who was. according
to the statement of his friendskidnaped
whllo pas&lng the Chinese legation hero
and who Is held as a prisoner In the le
gation on the charge of having been en
gaged In n conspiracy to overthrow the
Mnnchu dynasty.
A complete cordon of dctcctlvcswas _ _
formed around the Chlncso legation , the om-
corn being ordered to seize Sun Yat Sen
and release him If ho should bo brought
Tlio marquis of Salisbury , after reading
n number of aflldavlta In the case , sent a
Btrongly worded letter to the Chlncso envoy
pointing out that the method adopted by
the legation In arresting Sun Yat Sen was
distinctly not needed , as the courts wcro
open to the Chinese officials to obtain any
criminal for legal purposes. The premier
also bald that ho could not fall to point
out that tlio act savored of unfriendliness
as a eccintng violation of the right of asy
lum to which England was committed by
ovcry tradition and belief ; and ho asked the
envoy to Immediately release the Impris
oned Chlncman and so avoid further un
Later In the day Sir Halllday Macartney ,
the counsellor of the Chinese legation ,
called at the Foreign ofllco and said that
Sun Yal Sen would bo released without
prejudice to the rights of the legation
which wcro Involved.
An Inspector of police and Sun Yat Sen's
friend. Dr. Cantllo , who first raised the
question of the Chinaman's Imprisonment ,
went to the Chinese legation at 4:30 : p. ta.
with a letter from the Foreign olllce , and
not long afterward they emerged from a
dido door with Sun Yat Sen , entered a
cab and drove to the Foreign office , where
Sun Yat Sen made a formal statement. The
release was witnessed by a largo crowd
of people.
A representative of the Associated press
was this afternoon Informed that In official
circles the detention of Sun Yat Sen at the
Chinese lega'ton was regarded as a "mon
strous abuse of privileges of the legation
which could not bo tolerated for a moment. "
It appears that Sir Halllday Macartney , on
receiving the marquis of Salisbury's note ,
went to the bcdsldo of the Chinese minister ,
who Is In 111 health , and explained to him
that the marquis of Salisbury Insisted upon
the release of Sun Yat Sen. The Chinese
minister thereupon cabled to Peking for In
structlons and , on the receipt of an answer
Sun Yat Sen was released.
The newspapers continue printing Indig
nant comment on the case. The Globe this
afternoon says : "Tho deepest resentment
would bo felt against any government which
permitted this outrage upon a man who
has como to London for protection to go un-
rcdresscd. The Chlncso embassy must under
stand that public opinion will not allow
legal notion to abrogate protection. "
James Can tile , who brought , the case to the
notice of the authorities here , says In an
Interview today that ho know Sun Ynt Sen
Intimately In Hong Konc during the year
JSS7. Ho adds that the Chinaman came to
London on his advlro In order to pursue his
medical studies , as ho was In trouble with
the Chlncso government. Dr. Cantllo saw
Sun Yat Sen in Honolulu last March am
saw him dally here. Continuing , Dr. Cantlli
said : "I received Information on the 1711
that Sun Yat Sen was a prisoner and abou
to bo sent to China , where ho would bo be
headed. "
After his release Sun Yat Sen. In an In
tervlow , denied that he entered the Chines
legation of his own accord , as asserted b >
the Chinese officials. Ho said ho was pats
Ing the Chlncso legation , which at the tlin
ho did not know as the Chinese official head
quarters In London , when ho met a China
man with whom ho got Into conversation
The stranger. In the course of n chat will
Sun Yat Sen. said ho also came from Can
ton , and walking along they soon met nn
other Chinaman , who , It appears , cmcrgei
from the legation and was Introduced tc
Bun Yat Sen by the first Chinaman , wlic
was the Interpreter of the Chlncso legation
and who la named Tang. After talking i
llttlo the party was Joined by nnothc
Chinaman and Tang thereupon left. Contln
utng , Sun Yat Sen said : "Wo then returnee
nnil passing the legation the two remaining
Chinamen asked mo to enter , llcforo
' could reply they pushed mo Insldo the dee
and slammed It behind me. Once lnsld <
the building , I was forced upstairs to thi
fourth story by my companions , who were
big men and who locked mo In a room
Almost Immediately afterward a gentleman
( described as bring Sir Halllday MacCart
noy ) entered and said : 'You are In China
now. ' Ho asked mo If my name was Sun
Yat Son , and when I acquiesced ho said h
arrostejl me upon Information received from
the Chlncso minister at Washington , whi
had cabled the legation hero that Sun Ya
Sen was on the Majestic. "
"Tho next day , " continued Sun Yat Sen
"Tang appeared nnd said : 'Everything 1
settled ; wo are going to gag nnd bind you
nnd carry you out at night on board a slil
wo have chartered , probably a Gleii liner
as MacCartnoy la a friend of the captain.
" 'If wo can't Bimtgglo you away , wo can
lilll you as this Is China' ( meaning the le
gallon ) . "
Sun Yat Sen further said , In reply to ques
tlons on the subject , that ho was provide
with food when he asked for It , and It seem
his friends succeeded In cominunlcatln
with him through the English servants o
the legation by means of notes hlddc
among the coals.

WASHINGTON , Oct. 23. It can be stated
authoritatively that the proposals which Sir
ullan Paunccfoto Is authorized by .the
British Foreign office to present to the State
department embraces the entire Venezuelan
question , and the question of a general
rcaty between the United States nnd Great
Irltnln , whereby all future disputes will
jo submitted to arbitration. The nature of
ho proposals Is such that It Is believed the
dispute over Venezuela is much nearer a
Inal solution than at any time since the
rouble bczan.
Sir Julian Paunccfote called at the State
Icpartmcnt today. Owing to this being cab.
net day Sir Julian and the secretary had
only ten minutes' conference. The ambas
sador carried a Inrgo roll of documents ,
which he left for the careful perusal of the
From the bulk of the documents It Is
supposed that they were made up In largo
part of data respecting the extent of the
Qrlttsh Individual Interest in the disputed
joundary territory. Information which Soc-
ictary OIncy has all along sought from tlio
British side. If this troublesome phase of
.ho boundary dispute can bo adjusted satis
factorily , there is llttlo doubt In view of
the statement given out by tbo Urltlsh Foi-
elgn offlco after Sir Julian's recent confer
ence with Lord Salisbury and Mr. Cham
berlain to the effect that Sir Julian "has
returned to Washington with certain In
structions , and negotiations will bo re
opened Immediately on his arrival , but It Is
too early to say whether or not the pro
posals of the Drltlsh government ore likely
to bo accepted" that the main question In
dlvcuto can bo speedily settled.
It can be stated positively that no notes
or negotiations of any kind have passed be
tween Secretary Olncy and Lord Salisbury
since Juno 22 last , although reports to the
contrary have appeared. The present ne
gotiations will bo resumed at the point
where they were suspended at that date.
Mr. Olncy's final proposal on June 22 was
that , so far as Venezuela was concerned ,
It should bo embraced In a treaty of ar
bitration separate from the general treaty
of arbitration. Ho Insisted , however , that
Venezuelan arbitration was a prerequisite
to any general arbitration and that the
arbitration should be final and embrace
all the territory In dispute , settled as well
as unsettled , .Great Lrltaln being opposed
to Including Iho settled districts. In view
of the statement of the Foreign ofllco that
the proposals about to bo made give hope
of a final settlement It seems likely that
Lord Salisbury's answer to Mr. Olncy's prop
osition of Juno 22 will bo favorable or In
the line of compromising the difference on
The call of Sir Julian on Secretary Olncy
today was ono of courtesy to present his
respects after hla arrival and the question
of arbitration was not taken up , oxccpt
that arrangements wcro made for n formal
mcoMng at the earliest moment Mr. Olncy
might suggest.

proclamation containing the following pro
visions :
First All of the Inhabitants In tbo coun

tbo towns must betake themselves to the
towns occupied by troops within a pcrloi
of eight days. Those who arc found outside
the towns after the expiration of that pcrloi
will be considered rebels und will bo trlci
as such.
Second The withdrawal of groceries from
the towns Is absolutely prohibited and alsi
the transportation of them by sea , or lam
without a permit from the military .author !
ties. Violators of this provision arc to bi
tried and punished as alders of the rebels.
Third Owners of cattle must carry then
to towns or provide Immediately that they
shall receive duo protection.
Fourth Eight days after the publication
of this proclamation all rebels surrendering
In ovcry municipality will bo subject to th
captain general's disposal to order them
where to reside and It will bo a commcndn
tlon In their favor for them to give avail
able news about the enemy and to sur
render with thplr firearms , and , moreover , to
surrender collectively In their organizations
Fifth The proclamation Is only enforce
able In the province of Plnar del Rio.
The Insurgents during the last two weeks
have been continuing the work of dovasta
tlon , particularly In the province of Matan
zas , where they have reduced to ashes clgh
tobacco and sugar plantations , together iwltl
many farm houses and huts of laborers , the
total valiio being about $2,000,000. Hun

very gra\e. The ministers ore opposed to
tbo poll tax Imposed on the Mussulmans
but the palace officials Insisted that the
measure was necessary for the defense o ;
the Mussulman religion , on the ground that
the Christians are preparing to attack the
Mussulmans , and the European press Is
preaching a cms."Jo against Islam.

NEW YORK , Oct. 23. About half of yes
terday's heavy break in wheat was regained
today. From start to finish the market was
a bundle of nerves that quickly cave way
on slight provocation. The traders wcro
very cautious today. The downward move
ment was checked by an unexpectedly firm
ret of cables from Liverpool , accompanied
Ijy a goodly array of foreign buying , which
absorbed all the early offerings and Inspired
local houses to follow suit. The result was
a Jump of 2',4 cents In first prices to 79 %
cents for December , followed "quickly by a
further rise to SO'4 cents. At noon tight
money reports and declining ca h prices In
the northwest led to active selling and a
1-ccnt decline. From this point there was
an Irregular advance during the afternoon
to SOV4 cents , helped by San Francisco ad
vices reporting another cargo taken for
Calcutta. A slight setback In the last few
minutes nnd It closed nervous nt SO',4 cents ,
or 2 ! < , ( ? ? 2 % cents above last night , the great
est advance beingon near months. Trac
ing during the day was less active than ot
late , but this was offset by the constant up
and down movement of prices , which kept
the pit in an almost perpetual state of scalp
ing activity. Sales of the day footed up
10,102,000 bushels.

LONDON , Oct. 23. The Times , In Its
financial article , discusses the chances o
the gold hoards In the United States coming
back after the election and thinks that sucl
a movement may be anticipated because
the two wealthy nations on the contlnen
want gold and will even pay a small com
mission In order to obtain It.
"But It Is neccrsary to consider two con
tlngcnclcs , " eavs the Times , "first , that the
election ot McKlnloy Is likely to give an
Impetus of exports to the United States and
thus to Increase ! the tendency of gold ! o go
to Europe. Second. If Bryan Is badlj
beaten , Europe will iroely purchase Amcrl
can securities , and thus , to a great ex
tent , neutralize the effect of these Imports.
"It is believed In some quarters that the
credits obtained here In the last two months
are largely Iho * result of financial opera
tlons , such as tlio negotiating twelve
month loans by railway companies. If tha
opinion bo correct there may be more grain
and cotton bills to como forward later than
Is now supposed. "

Pour Masked Robbers' Bold Work Oloso to
Kansas City.
nxprmn McuNctiKcr Sure * Valuable * In
the Safe by Throwing Them Into
a Chicken Coop llofore Ail-
' ' intttltiHT the llnitilltx.
KANSAS CITY , Oct. 23. A passenger and
express train on the Chicago & Alton rail
road , duo hero from Chicago and St. Louis
7 o'clock , was held up and robbed by
four masked men this evening in Blue
Cut , between Independence and Glendale -
dale , Mo. The scene of the robbery Is
less than twenty miles distant from Kan
sas City. The train was flagged nt the en
trance. Whllo two of the robbers stood
guard over the passenger coaches the other
two covered the conductor , engineer nnd
fireman with their pistols and compelled
them to go Into the express car. There the
robbers commanded the messenger to open
the door ot the car , threatening to break
In the door should he refuse. After some
delay the robbers were admitted to the ex
press car. They compelled the messenger
to open the safe and extracted from It ccv-
crol packages. The express messenger ,
however , had surmised what the trouble
was. Whllo the bandits had been demandIng -
Ing admission , he had quickly opened the
safe , taken out tha money packages , and
tossed them Into n chicken coop. When ho
finally admitted the robbers to the car and
opened the safe for them the strong box
contained but two or thrco packets of
Jewelry. Even at the point of the robbers'
plstcls and rides the messenger insisted
that he had carried no currency.
Taking up the very * little booty at hand ,
the outlaws uncoupled the express car from
the coach following It , and then marched
their prisoners forward to the locomotive ,
where they compelled them to sit down
on the bank alongside the track. The
leader climbed Into the cab , tried the air
and the steam , and then called to the
men who wcro back guarding the passen
ger coaches to como forward. At this Junc
ture the engineer cautioned the bandit to
bo careful with the locomotive , warning
htm that they wcro. on a hill , and that If
ho left the engine Improperly guarded at
the top of the hill , It would crash back
Into the train , or else , if left on the oppo
site grade , crash down Into the train sup
posed to be waiting at Independence. The
bandit said he would take care of the loco
motive. With this the outlaws pulled out ,
having held up the train without having
fired a shot. They ran the locomotive sev
eral miles , to within a mlle of Independence ,
where they abandoned It. It was two hours
before the robbery bcc'amo known. The
passengers on the tralni did not know what
htdt causea the dclayTiSiatllli'fnoarly' ' * two
Cours afterwards , , and amused themselves
during the"long stop l > y taking a straw pres
idential ballot.
As soon as a party of the trainmen c'&uld
walk to Independence the alarm was sent
out. A deputy sheriff and posse left Inde
pendence at about 8 oclock tonight , and
at about the same time the squad of police
men was detailed from here nnd left for
the scene of the robbery on a special
train. It Is thought , however , that the out
laws are now safely out of tha way. So
far as can bo learned , the robl/crs secured
only the packets of Jewelry and $25 In cur
rency , which the fireman had left in his
vest , hanging In the cab. Hewjnuch mpncy
the messenger saved by throwing It Into
the chicken coop the express qfllcers will
not sas' . '
There have been three holdups In Blue
Cut. The James gang held up a train here
In ISSf.
A. J. Fell of Roodhousc. 111. , was the
conductor In charge of the train. James
Wetton and A. n. Post of Slater , Mo. ,
wcro on the locomotive as engineer and
fireman , respectively. The United States
Express company's messenger was Andrew
Shields of St. Louis.
Fiom Interviews had with several of the
passengers after their arrival hero It ap
pcara that only a lew of the passengers on
the train knew anything about the robbery
until some time after It was all over and
the outlaws had departed. Thrco or four
stopped out upon the platforms after the
train came to n stop and started to walk
forward. The bandits on guard told them
to get back into the coaches and they
climbed aboard the smoking car. The
vvbolo affair was so quietly conducted that
oxen these men , though they wcro BUS
plcloua enough to get ur.der cover without
being told a second time , were not sure
that tbo train was In the hands ot road
CHICAGO , Oct. 23. A. Wygant , general
agent of the United States Express company ,
said tonight that the train that was held up
never carried much money. None was
shipped from Chicago by It , and what there
was in the express car must have been
small sums from way stations. The amount
In the express car would not exceed $2,000
In his opinion.
Thirteen Hundred Thouxiinil Titke.ii
for California Account.
NEW YORK , Oct. 23. The speculative
equilibrium In Wall street was disturbed In
the late , afternoon today by the announce
ment that Laldlaw & Company , an influential
banking house , acting as agents for the
Bank of California , had withdrawn from
the subtrcasury $1,300,000 In exchange for
greenbacks. This being the first substantial
withdrawal since the termination of the
gold export movement , It created a decidedly
unfavorable Impression on the part ot the
traders , and stocks reacted all along
the line. The firm positively re
fused to discuss the subject of the
withdrawal. In the absence of defi
nite news on the subject , It was sug
gested . that the withdrawal was for the
purpose of strengthening the gold reserve
ot the Dank of California , also that tbo
gold was for account of a largo California
capitalist. The heaviest previous withdrawal
of gold recently was that of $000,000 by
Kubn , Loeb & Company , and the firm re
placed the coin hero today. It could not
bo learned whether the coin would be
Bhlpped out of town or would bo left tem
porarily In the safe dcpoalt vaults , where
It now lies.

PLATTSMOUTH , Neb. , Oct. 23. ( Special
Telegram. ) Attorney General Churchill
was billed to speak In this city this even
ing , but owing to the Inability of the cen
tral committed to secure a largo enough
hall ho was telegraphed at the last moment
not to como. Crowds of enthusiastic fill-
zens had gathered on the streets and the
McKlnlcy club headquarters wcro bcselgcd
by the Union Veterans' McKlnlcy club to
such an extent that Judge S. M. Chapman

oughly satisfied.
In Waterman's hall Senator Allen was
holding forth , but owing to the very poor

CINCINNATI , Oct. 23. The Insult to thj
secretary of the United Statea treasury ,
John G. Carlisle , by men of his native state
nnd city is the leading topic of conversa *
tlon today. While accounts differ as to the
degree of brutality manifested by those la
the hall and on the street around the build *
Ing , thcro Is no dispute as to the bitterness
of the feeling manifested.
Secretary Carlisle was purposely detained
In the hall by his friends In the hope that
the outside crowd would disperse , but aa
soon as Carlisle discovered this he Insisted
on going out Immediately. Then a police
escort was provided and by main force a
passage to the street was obtained. Vila
epithets were then showered at the sec
retary , and ono man , John Pagan , threw a
lighted cigar In his face and stopped ae 1C
to pick up a moro formidable missile. Ho
was promptly seized by the police , but was
discharged , no ono preferring a charge. Secretary -
rotary Carlisle , on reaching Mr. Helm's door ,
thanked the chief of police for the protec
tion afforded.
Secretary Carlisle found himself the cen
ter of widespread attention today In const. . .
qucnco of tlio gross Indignity offered him
thirl- ; his speech on Thursday night la
Odd Fellows' hall In Covlngton. The llrst
Indications came In calls from friends nuq
neighbors anxious to assure him of then
detestation of the outrage. Later message *
began to arrlvo showing that similar feet *
Ing exIsteJ In other uortlous of the state.
At length Mr. Carlisle was obliged to deny
himself to callers to enable him to get th
rest ho needed nnd to attend to his correx
spondcnce. The feeling In Covlngton , ai
well as In Cincinnati , ran high as the mat
ter was discussed.
The Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce ,
regardless of political partisanship , called
n special meeting and appointed n commit
tee to give Mr. Carlisle a most urgent In
vitation to visit the Chamber of Comincrco
before ho returns to Washington. The feelIng -
Ing that prompted the meeting was that
the members wanted an opportunity to
show the secretary of the treasury ibo hlgir
icgard In which ho Is held by the Ciiambcr
of Commerce. In addition to this a largo
delegation of gold democrats from Walnut
Hill called to urge the secretary to glvo
them nn address and to allow them to tcs- .
tlfy their appreciation by giving him a bc-i
coming hearing. To nil requests fdi ,
speeches Mr. Carlisle was obliged to glvo
a refusal , as the five speeches ho has prom
ised to clvo In Kentucky fully occupy all
tbo time he can spare from his public du
ties. i
Speaking of last night's occurrcnco thi
secretary regarded It as moro than an acci
dental occurrence. In his opinion It was
an organized mob. "I did not know dur
ing "my speech that any such thing ha > ]
been done. Of course I saw the disorder Iq
the hall. It came from a lot of men than
had gathered In the roar ot the hall. Tha
body ot tbo house was decent and well be
haved. Indeed many ladles wcro present.
I heard nlso tbo iiolso in the street/
but did not know what It was. I did nor
speak to the mob but once. I saw It dlcj
no good. I was still in Ignorance of wha {
was going on outside the hall , though my ,
friends secerned to bo advised of it. They ,
kept detaining mo In various ways until at
last I asked why wo did not go. Then thojj
told mo that a crowd was gathered outside )
the hall and they wero. waiting until lc'
should disperse. When I heard that I salt )
I was going and wo started. When I got )
to the door I saw the crowd there. Thoyj
had been waiting purposely thcro all thu
time. Thcro was a rush and It was wltn'
great dlfllculty that wo got out of the build
ing and along the streets. They followed
us until within a square of Air. Hclra'j
house , when the police formed a line across }
the street and stopped further progress. 'j
"Tho gathering outside the hall , the folV
lowing of those 200 or 300 men for several
squaics through the streets was not a mcrq
accident ; It was an organized affair. " 11
To a wish expressed that better trcaU
mcnt awaited him at the speeches he Id
yet to make , ho replied : "It makes llttla
difference to me. It is an Illustration t > t
what may be expected everywhere If tha
principles of the Chicago platform prevail.1
Personal indignity and even personal vloV
lencc will hurt those who attempt It nioro.
than It can harm me. "
The secretary left tonight In order to
meet his engagement at Bowling Grecn
Ky. , tomorrow. i
