Canton River—How Offenders Are
Executed—The Introduction of Tele
The Indianapolis Journal says: Lieut.
James W. Graydon, who was for some time
jn China was asked by a reporter yesterday
as to the military establishment of that
country. “The biblical quotation ‘aster
riblo as an army with banners,’ ” said the
Lieutenant, “could apply with special force
to China. I ate dinner one day while I was
there with the Viceroy of the Province of
Canton. He asked me during the repast
what I would recommend for tho better
ment of his army. Out of every set of fours
three men carry flags and only one a gun.
That's a fact; so I told him through the in
terpreter I would take away the flags, ex
cept one for every thousand men, and each
evening at dross parado and each morning I
would have them, kneel down anil swear to
defend that one flag, that I could recom
mend him to put repeating rifles in tho
hands of all the men who had formerly
carried flags, and that Lieut. Graydon have
tho contract for furnishing tho rifles. My
suggestion tickled the Viceroy greatly. Tho
Black Flags in Tonquin,o? whom you heard
so much awhile ago, carry large black, flags
with a Chinese character in white letters in
the centre, indicating tho section of country
thev come from.”
A. listener was of opinion that it was a
cheerful circumstance that the lato Confed
erates were not so well provided with ban
ners as the Chinese. Otherwise the Clove
land, order for the return of captured bunt
jug would havo created even more indigna
The lieutenant laughed at this suggestion,
“The Chinese on the Canton river have
$12,000,000 invested in the best Krupp guns
mounted in their forts. They are beginning
to pick up in the use of artillery'. They have
foreigners, chiefly Europeans, as instructors,
and they are quick to learn. The Viceroy
of a (province is about the same iu the nation
relatively as to rank as a Governor of one of
our States to the General Government of the
United States. But the Viceroy is a great
potentate. He has his own army and navy.
Tin .Chinese, in addition to Krupp guiis,

"Th 1 unfform of the Chinese soldier would
hardly lie considered military in any civil
hot country. It is a loose costume, much
like the Chinese wear in this country, ex
cept that the symbol that represents tho
body of ttoops to which tho individual
soldier belongs is placed on the front of the
tunic and on the back so that the badge
of the brigade to which they belong can be
seen whether they advance or retreat. Offi
cers wear the same badge and the same kind
of a costume except that it is made of silk
and is very' gorgeous. The guns carried by
the Chinese are Remingtons, Springfields,
the Manser, a German rifle, and some of
the Berdan rifles the same as used by the
Russians. They are all mixed up as to small
arms and buy their cartridges chiefly in
Europe. They have a battery of Gatling
guns for each brigade, and these Gatlings
they make themselves. Years ago Mr.
Guiding sent an agent to China with two
pieces to make contracts. Tho Chinese in
sisted on buying those two pieces and the
agent sold them. They never wanted to buy
any more. Those imitative people with those
two as models so injudiciously disposed of
by Mr. Gatling's agent, have fully supplied
themselves. Every mandarin who has a
steam yacht has at least two Gatlings on
his craft and they areas good as the sample.
They are not yet equal to making shell
cartridges, however. All the forts on the
Canton river, as I said, have Krupp guns
and they' paid well for them. They have
them from twenty-ton pieces up to seventy
tons. The Chinese, when properly armed
and instructed, will make very good sol
“The Viceroy, after we had dispatched din
ner, gave us what ho considered a great treat.
Three men were to be executed and he in
vited me and unother guest to go with him
to see tho execution. We were carried to
the place, where the poor wretches were to
be disposed of, in sedan chairs. When wo
cuine to tho inclosure wo found three posts
abwitr twenty feet apart, and at each post
was ouptof the men to be executed. Each
miserable Chinaman was kneeling with his
cue nfiH-J or tied to the post high abovo his
head, while in his mouth hebad a pine filled
with tobacco, at which he was pulling away
with awful energy. Each <tf us, the Vice
roy. and his two guests were seated in front
of one of these poor follows. I was opposite
the first one to be executed as it proved.
The executioner came along and showed to
tii criminals throe swords of strange form
nut) enjsJiVnnrp as a razor. One was shaped
much Ijke a butcher's cleaver, with a larger
blade and a handle long enough for two
bauds. Another was of a half-moon shape
u;i4 also with a long handle, while the third
loflyri somewhat likoasaw, having a tooth
lille edge. The men to be decapitated were,
it suets, to bo allowed to choose the weapon
they preferred .to die by. Two of them
chose the clenver-liko blade and the other
the half moon, none of them desiring the
saw-edged knife. The executioner, picking
up the chosen weapon, looked at the Viceroy
who grunted something, and then quickly
swung the blade in the air. The culprit
"■as puffing away on his pipe with might
and main. lie received tho stroke without
flinching, anil as his head came off it was
hit dangling by the cue against tho post.
Tho blood spurted almost to my feet.
It was a most sickening sight,
but I was curious to see the effect on the
other victims. They never winked, and
smoked to tho last. Indeed, smoke curled
out of the mouth of one of the heads after it
was detached from its trunk. I feit ex
tremely squeamish, but the Viceroy con
templated the execution with immense satis
faction and doubtless thought in his hos
pitality that he was affording me a great
treat. The men executed were soldiers, and
their crime was theft. China has between
y,OOO,000 and 4,000,000 soldiers, I was told,

“You can have an idea of the thickly pop
ulutod country by this: One day I" went
upon a hill outsidu of the City of Canton
mid there, within a radius of twenty miles,
1 saw six villages (they oull them villages),
each containing about 500,000 jieople. On
my ('rut trip up the river, 17 mile* to
Mhunghai, I saw a great lot of liaystncks, us
f thought. They were all along tho rout*',
and so numerous tluii I called the attention
°f n gentleman to them. ‘What in the
world do you supiioso,' I asked, ‘areffbey
going to do with nil that hay;’ He
laughed, and told we those were Chinese
burial places. They are earthem mounds,
at| d [he grass upon them, Iming then dry
and burned, iravo them Me- apparauoe of

JSfesten, They are so plentiful they gave
trollble some years ago when- English
engineers ran a railroad through many of
tnem. Railroads have to Fun in something
like a straight line, and they couldn’t dodge
the cemeteries. The government built a
railroad from the Woosong forts at the
mouth of the Shanghai river to Shanghai,
a distance of 17 miles, and destroyed so
many of these mounds that the populace
ros ® frenzied at the desecration, tore up the
road, and the government never dared put
it back again. The English who built it
made a handsome profit, as they were paid
about $340,000 a mile for building it. Cars,
locomotives, and everything were destroyed.
From that time until within the last two
years there was no attempt, I believe, to
build a railroad in China, but now they are
building a road from Tien-Tsin to Pekin,
124 miles, which will soon be completed.
European railroad men sent out to China
beautiful models of oars, track, and engines.
Ihe little models of engines being nickel
and gold plated. Americans sent out a lot
of blue drawings, so, of course, the Ameri
can company' got no contracts for building
railroads in China.
“Li Hung Chang, the CliinesePrime Min
ister , is the iqan of whom Gen. Grant said
he was the brightest man in China. All the
royalty at Pekin is afraid of him. Ho lives
at Tien-Tsin. The Empress Dowager tele
graphed for him about two years ago to
come to Pekin for consultation. He tele
graphed back for them to prepare quarters
lor 10.000 soldiers and he would be up. He
was telegraphed to that he need not come.
Their idea is supposed to havo been to get
him to Pekin alono and there poison or as
sassinate him iti'some way. He is 56 or 58
years old and six feet and seven inches high
—a most tremendous man.
“My first contract with the Chinese gov
ernment was to run eight lines of torpedoes
across the Canton river in twenty-one days.
The torpedoes were moored to cables, and
run by power engines ashore somewhat on
the principle that cable cars are run, the
torpedoes being kept beneath the surface of
the water as run out. They were arranged
to he fired by electricity, and run on end
less cables, so the firing could be kept up all
day, if necessary. I received $160,000 for
the work before I did a stroke. I was fur
nished all the lari irers and soldiers I desired.
There were 500 laborers and 20,000 soldiers,
and I was the only foreigner there—foreign
devil, as they call it. I completed my con
tract in seventeen days by working about
twenty-one hours out of every twenty-four
in that time. Then tho Viceroy came down
to inspect the lines and see me fire the tor
pedoes. They brought a brand new junk
that cost about $5,000 down there to be
blown to pieces, when any old craft would
havo done just as well for the experiment.
This was at the Bogon forts, forty
four miles south of Canton, about 50 miles
from Hong Kong. After the Viceroy in
spected the engine-houses, cables, etc., I
began to send out torpedoes? The Viceroy
asked me to show him how to work the
levers. I did go. About that time a boat
load of coolies came down tho river with an
officer aboard. He caine ashore at the en
gine-house, and the coolies remaining in tho
boat began to look for a place to tie up.
Beneath the water one of these innocents
saw the cable and tied the boat’s painter to
it. It was the Viceroy pulled the lever.
The boat with its frightened load of China
men started out. Its bow went under the
water and the Chinese were struggling in
the river. It was then a very funny sight and
the Viceroy lay back and laughed until I
thought him in danger of suffocation. The
Chinaman who tied the painter to the cable
was afterward, I learned, taken out and
soundly bambooed. The explosion that de
stroyed the junk was made by 260 pounds of
dynamite, and the force was felt up and
down the river a mile and a half in each
direction. For several hours Chinese were
at work picking up the thousands of killed
A CHILIAN “SHE.”
Isidora de Consino, the Monte Cristo
of South America.
From the San Francisco Examiner.
A flashy dressed young man of medium
height, with a large diamond in his shirt
bosom, stepped off the barkentine Alda via
a few days ago when it arrived from Chili.
There was something so sharp and shrewd
in Iris appearance that the attention of a
reporter was attracted to him.
"That is Mr. Jenkins, the grand secretary
lo the richest woman in South America—
Mine. Isidora' jdo Consino—commonly
known as the Monte Cristo of South Amer

“So you would like to know something

stroking his moustache, on being intro
duced. “Well, there is lots to tell you. I
could talk about her possessions and her ec
centricities for a , week and the subject
would not be half exhaust ed. It's a curious
thing that she was not discovered long

American const and is almost a queen over
the people. In fact, there is no one who
disputes her iu anything she says or doei,
and she revels in the luxuries that her enor

fifty years have passed since she was born,

“The society people of the city repeatedly
vow that they will nover visit her again,
but her receptions are so elegant and rich
that they never fail to attend w hen they re
ceive an invitation.
“Isidora is a native of Chili and a widow
of the late Luis de Consino, u gentleman of
French origin. She claims to havo Castilian

THE MORNING NEWS: SATURDAY, AUGUST 0, ISB7.
A COLORADO OASIS.
It Lies Close by a Vast Basin of Pure
Balt, and Seems a Paradise.
From the San Francisco Argonaut.
In the middle of tho Colorado desert there
is a curious depression in the earth’s surface,
through which the Southern Pacific rail
road runs. The lowest point is 260 feet
below the sea level, and here is a great
body of salt, more pure than any known to
commerce, and in an abundance that may
supply the world if all other resources should
be exhausted. From a point on tho road
called Indio the descent is rapid to this
place of salt. It was once an inland sea,
from which the waters have apparently
passed away by evaporation, leaving a s;iit
deposit that resembles ice. Standing upon
its margin, we look upon a perfectly level
and white crust of salt some 30 or 40 miles
in length by perhaps 20 in width. A tram
way is laid over the crust to a distance of
more than a mile, over which a steam
dummy and train of freight cars run to the
mill where the salt is ground. Beyond the
mill a smaller engine pushes its smaller
care further out upon the salt crust where
the salt is gathered. The process of
collecting is very simple. Laborers, pro
vided each with a wheelbarrow, shovel,and
adze, go out upon tho salt field, pick the
surface to the depth of au inch or two,
gather barrow loads and wheel them to the
care. This salt crust varies in thickness: in
soma places it is but a few inches above the
mud and water, and some places nearly
five feet in thickness. Liverpool salt must
bo kiln-dried before being ground. Nature
sends this to the mill so dry that it may be
ground as fine as flour. At the mill it is
bagged and marked for shipment, and is
ready for table or dairy use. This salt is
99 per cent, pure, and is placed upon the
market ns “New- Liverpool.” It is un
doubtedly the purest salt in the market.
It is on the rising slope from this salt
mine, some twenty miles away, and in tho
very heart of the greqt Colorado desert,
that the Southern Pacific people have
struck artesian water. At a depth of 450
feet a flow of 1,800 gallons an hour has been
brought to the surface. Tho bore is being
pushed downward for further demonstra
tion. Tliis discovery of artesian water has
caused tho location of about two townships
of land, which is of good soil, being covered
with a growth of mesquite shrubbery and
weeds. At tho station, Indio, where the
company had found water for train use by
pumping, there is a growth of pepper,
locust, cotton w ood, and palm trees, all doing
well and attaining great growth. Grapes,
watermelons, tomatoes, roses, geraniums,
and morning-glories are there seen in
flourishing condition. Grapes and water
melons ripen in June.
Tho gentlemen who have located this
tropical Eden will experiment in the direc
tion of tropical productions. Already they
talk of cotton, coffee, and tobacco. That it
will produce better oranges than San
Bernardino or Riverside they do not doubt.
Sau Francisco is to receive from this para
dise its early watermelons, its berries, ad
sweet potatoes. Only a few miles from tho
line of the road is a grove of 1,000 date
palms, reaching a great height, and bearing
the real but very small and inferior date.
The foot hills are skirted all along with
these palm trees. Iu these mountains, it is
said, are productive valleys well supplied
with water, but it sinks when it touches the
level of the plain. This is a marvellous and
wonderful land, and nothing caused the
writer greater surprise than the soil and
water discoveries constantly being made in
these desert places. Places that are very
inaccessible, that are embedded in mountain
canons and away from civilization, are be
coming the luxurious homes of industriojis
and enterprising people who have the
nerve to go somewhat Ix'yond the confines
and boundaries of present genteel life.
What a God’s blessing it would be to the
members of Henry George’s Anti-Poverty
party if some kind, powerful genie would
clothe them ali, and then lift them up out
of the city slums, tenement houses, politics,
gin, idleness, and crime, into these mountain
and desert homes where poverty is only
known and destitution only felt by those
who are unable or imwilling to toil.

Frederick the Great Punishes a Diso

The days of the historical “Long Bridge,”
leading from Berlin to Potsdum, are num
bered—a bridge which played an important
part in the career of Frederick tho Great.
In the days of that King'all travelers be
tween the two cities were compelled to pass
over the bridge, and few escaped tho mon
arch's notice while sitting iu the study of
his neighboring palace. Here ho was ac
customed to keep strict account of his of

and then by a .jaunt in tho neigh I siring

observed. So lie placed a mirror in the
room, which accurately reflected what oc
curred upon the bridge. Olie day, in the
evening of which it masquerade was to
take place in Berlin, ho sut as usual at his
desk, when glancing in the mirror he saw u
cavalry Captain in tho act of crossing. He
concluded at once that the object of his

also intended to visit, hut had forbidden his
A few hours later he also started for Ber
lin, and appeared in the opera house at the
proper time. His sharp eye soon recognized
the sinner iu the mask of a noble Venetian,
and iie followed him, step by step, until he
was thoroughly convinced that he had made
no mistake. .Stepping in front of the cul
prit, and gazing at him with a transfixing
glance, he thundered, “Mask, I know
you!’’ The officer, who immediately recog
nized tho tones of the King, was frightened
for a moment. He know that a heavy pun
ishment, possibly dismissal, would bo meted
out to him. Bat he collected himself and
replied: “Mask, I do not know you.”-
“Mask, you are Cavalry Captain -
With a resolution of despair the officer an
swered: “Yes: but I am hero without a
loave of alis. nco. He is a scoundrel who bo
frays me.” The King hit his lips. The an
swer was unexpectedly collected and impu
dent. But presently he said: “Upon my
word, it remains our secret.”
The officer left the masquerade, hurried
to his hotel, sprang upon Ins horse, and gal
loped bock to Potsdam. On the following
morning at 8 o’clock he appeared punctual

regiment had lieen commanded. The King
soon began to review, staring strongly at
the captain as ho lMissod down the tile, but
saying nothing, ail being in excellent order.
