Translate the following passage into Chinese( 試譯下段為中文)：
It was in the autumn of 1895 that the world first heard of Dr. Sun Yat-sen. A Chinese refugee in Britain had been kidnapped in broad day-light in a London street and was being held prisoner in the Chinese Legation. His liberty was denied him and his life was in great danger. For a few days the fate of the unknown Chinese was eagerly discussed all over the country. The public was indignant at such an outrage on personal freedom occurring in a country with a long and proud tradition of hospitality to political refugees and much sympathy was felt for the helpless prisoner. then, suddenly, the British Government intervened and Dr. Sun was released.
(From Dr. Sun Yat-sen in London)
