War Has Iteetl Declared.
I.omxix, July 27. A dispatch received
at 11 :30 a. in. today from Lloyds Agent
at Shanghai, China, confirms tho an
nouncement exclusively cabled to the
Associated Press last Saturday, that
war lietween China and Japan had been
declared. Both the Chinese and Japan'
ese minister say they have not been of
ficially informed that war has been de-
clared. They also claim to be ignorant
of the fact that the Japanese havo cap
tured tho King of Corea. The inline
diate cause of the declaration of war is
said to be the fact that the Japanese at
tacked Chinese transport conveylug
troops to Corea. It is reported that a
number of Chinese shipa have been
sunk by the Japanese cruisers. Tele
graphic communication has twice been
completely interrupted beyond Nagasaki
Japan and all message have been de

ion seem to be that while Japan may
be looked upon as likely to score the
first victoiies, tho Chinese troops will
eventually drive the Japanese out of
Corea, even if million of people have to
be sent to the front. The first overt act
of war occurred Tuesday, when the Jap
anese fired upon the junk steamship
Kowshong, belonging to Hugh Mathie
son of London, which had been char
tered by the Cninese government to con
vey troop to Corea. The Transport
