IS . it returned the indictments against
the two McNamara and against Ortte
McManlgal, who later signed a formal
statement concerning - his knowledge of
the case.
Since returning these Indictments the
grand Jury haa found time to take into
consideration other matters,' but has re
turned from time to time to considera
tion of the case to Investigate which
K waa gathered.

" HANKOW, China, Oct. U. The revolu
tionary movement la gaining momentum
with every hour. Since noon yesterday
it ha swept the little city of Hang
Yang and the naUve quarters of Han
kow. Great number of Chines art
Joining th movement voluntarily,
Th loaaea in the fighting thus far ag
gregate aeveral hundred, but practically
all th dead are Manchus. The alogan of
the movement, which la guided by shrewd
and temperate leaders Is evidently "Down
with the Manchus "
. Thus far there haa been no Indication
of any animosity against foreigner on
the t of the revolutionists. The capture
of Hang Yang, which la a town
of perhaps 100.000, Just . north of
Hankow, has delivered Into tha hands of
the revolutlonlata the arsenal and th
important Hang Yang iron worka. Th
revolutlonlata had no trouble in Haug
Tang, overwhelmingly outnumbering the
local troopa. General Chang Plao ea
caped and th members of th local gov
ernment were dispersed.
Th popularity of th revolutionary
movement all along th river and in th
Interior la Indicated by apparently
authentic reporta that several nearby
cities have fallen. Where resistance was
offered the town appear to have been
put to th torch.

Isaued a statement strongly attacking th
tariff on raw sugar, declaring tt to be a
"wicked tat" for the benefit of the beet

"Th duty which th United States
exacts on the Importation of raw sugar
holds up th price of the beet sugar, as
well aa the cane sugar. The beet com
panies have atated, aa I am Informed,
that they can produce beet augar at from

from 6 to 7 centa.
"In California tha beet sugar Is sold
Just under the price of the cane sugar
and tha cane augar. although It la manu
factured from Hawaiian raw sugar, which
Is admitted free of duty, costs the con
sumer the New York prlc of refined
sugar plus the freight. In short, beet
