OAUSE OF LI'S DEATH
Violent Dispute With Lessar,
the Russian Minister,
OVER THE MANCHURIAN TREATY
The Aged Viceroy, After a Stormy
Interview, Went Home In a'Paa-
aion and Had a Hemorrhage,
Which Resulted Fatally.
PEKIN, Nov. 8. A violent dispute with
Paul Iiessar, Russian Minister to China,
over the Manchurian treaty, appears to
have been the Immediate cause of the
death of LI Hung Chang.
The diplomatic events preceding this
.tragic climax have enabled Japan for a
moment tn frustrate tho nKtcrna rtt Tne
-rsla. A fortnight aeo the Jananese Lega
tion secured a reliable outline of the terms
of the treaty and thereupon demanded
that the Chinese plenipotentiaries official
ly lay before them the text, basing this de
mand upon the allegation that Japanese
Interests were Involved In any change of
the status of Manchuria. The Chinese
plenipotentiaries refused to comply with
the demand. Thereupon, the Japanese
Government, from Toklo, communicated
with the Southern Viceroys and Induced
theni to use their influence with the Em
press Dowager against the treaty. In the
meantime, the Empress Dowager instruct
ed LI Hung Chang to communicate the
treaty, after certain modifications, to the
Ministers of the powers, and, If they did
not object, to sign the same.
Li Hung Chang visited M. Lessar and
explained to him the instructions. The
Russian Minister strongly objected to re
vealing the text of the treaty to the Min
isters of the other powers, and a stormy
interview ensued. Li Hung Chang went
home in a violent passion and had a
hemorrhage, which the doctors attributed
to the overexertion of a weakened sys
tem. While these things were happening In
Pekln, the southern Viceroys sent to the
Emiirpss Dnwawr n mpmnrlal ncnlnat th
treaty. (5n receiving it, she telegraphed
to LI Hunjr Chancr countermanding the
order to sign. This instruction came af
ter LI Hung Chang had become uncon
scious. When M. Lessar endeavored to
have Li Hung Chang's seal affixed to the
treaty, Chou Pak, Provincial Treasurer,
had arrived from Pao Ting Fu and had
taken charge of the seals as the tempo
rary successor of Earl Li.
The flag of the United States Legation
was the Only one naif-masted in Pekin to
day. The mourners and the family of Li

assert that he will compel the nobles to

A military letter from a European now
In Tai Yuen Fu says that two British
officers, with a party of Indian soldiers,
encountered the Imperial procession, were
suspected of unfriendly motives and were
detained as prisoners by the Emperor's
body guard for a few days. Apparently
this was the exploring party command
ed by Major Manifold and Captain
Hunter, which has been operating In that
region for some time.

CARL LI'S SUCCESSOR.
Yuan Shi Kai Has Been Made Vice
roy of Chi LI Province.
WASHINGTON, Nov. S. Minister Cop
ger, at Pekln, has informed the State De
partment that Yuan Shi Kai has been ap
pointed to succeed Li Hung Chang as
Viceroy of Chi Li, and that Wang Weng
Shao has been appointed Deputy Viceroy
of the same province.
Yuan Is the present Viceroy of Shan
Tung Province. The appointment Is the
best that could have been made from all
China, accordlnsr to Mr. Roekhlll. th sne-
clal commissioner of the United States to
Pekin. Yuan is about 45 years of age and
came originally from the Province of Hu
Nan, where he began his public career as
a military officer. He was made Minister
to Corea'and for many years ably defend
ed the Chinese interests, in that troubled
land. As Governor of Shan Tung he
showed surprising ability in tranqulllzing
that dangerous province, while his gift
for diplomacy was exercised fully In pre
venting friction between the turbulent
population of the peninsula and the Ger
mans, when the latter were steadily- en
croaching from their original holdings at
Kiao Chou on the north coast As a mili
tary man. Yuan showed his ability by the
organization of what Is unrimihtpriiir the
best military force In China, and It was
his troops that occupied Pekln last Sum
mer when the foreign forces were with
drawn. They are thoroughly disciplined
and well officered, and, considering Chi
nese conservatism, they form a magnifi
cent display of Yuan's ability.
Wang Weng Shao, who Is made Deputy
Viceroy of Chi Li, Is also a man of
marked ability. Fortunately, he has al
ways been friendly to foreign Ideas and Is
not a reactionist He was one of the Grand
Secretaries of State and is at present one
of the two Ministers appointed to form
the new Chinese Foreign Office, which
will replace the Tsung 11 Yamun. Wang
is a man of affairs and was himself a
member of the Tsung 11 Yamun some
years ago, besides having been Director of
Mines and Railways. He has been with
the imperial -court since it fled from .Pe
kln. The records show that he always has
exerted his Influence in the direction of

Dr. Seaman Saia the Viceroy Suf
fered From Lack of Exercise.
NEW YORK. Nov. S. One of the most
intimate friends of Ll Hung Chang In this
country is Dr. Louis Seaman, of this city.
Dr. Seaman, who was formerly a Surgeon
In the United States Army, serving In
Porto Rico and the Philippines, spent
some time In China during the war of
1S99. So cloee did the Army Surgeon ap

CANDIDATE FOR SENATOR FROM WASHINGTON.
EX-GOVERXOR MILES C. MOORE.
WALLA 'WALLA, Nov. 8. Ex-Governor MHes C. Moore, who la being boomed
by the Republicans for Senator from Washington, when Senator Turner's term
ehall have expired, irthe president of the Baker-Boyer National Bank, of this
city. Mr. Moore, has said he is willing to be Senator, in fact, he would like to
be. He was a free-sIUer man at one timo. but he considers that that question Is
no longer an issue, and is now a full-fledged Republican. He favors the Nicaragua
Canal, and such reciprocity treaties as advocated by James G. Blaine.
Mr. Moore was born April 17, 1845. in Muskingum County, Ohio. He accom
panied his parents at an early age to Wisconsin, where ho was educated In th
public schools, and graduated at Bronson Institute. He imbibed his political
belief from the columns of the New York Tribune, when it was conducted by
Horace Greeley. When 18 ears old, he followed the advice of Greeley and came
West. He proved the plains, and reached Walla Walla In the Fall of 1803.
He was employed as a clerk In a general merchandise store, but soon branched
out for himself, and established the former well-known firm of Paine Bros. &
Moore. He afterwards became associated' with the late Dr. D. S. Baker in hla
many enterprises, and became his son-in-law. By the will of Dr. Baker, he be
came one of the managers of the millions left by him to be divided when hU
youngest child became of age, a period of some 12 years. Mr. Moore, besides
being president of a bank, Is extensively engaged in gralnralslng and other en
terprises. He has been a director of the O. R. & N. Co. for years. He
was the last Governor of Washington Territory, being appointed by Harrison In
the Spring of 1889. He turned the assets of the territory over to Governor

as usual. Dr. Mark is an exceedingly
able physician. But at the time df Li's
death he was away with Prince Chuan,
who went to Germany with the apology
commission. Ll, when left alone, rarely
took any care of himself, and It waB only
by constant vigilance on the part of Dr.
Mark that he was kept alive to the ripe
old age that he was permitted to attain.
"In stature Ll Hung Chang was a veri

all except hlg legs, which were undevel

had become atrophied from Jack of use.
"The incident which brought us togeth

were discussing the rights of the United
States to the Philippines, Ll arguing that
by right the islands belonged to China.
Finally he said that he wanted to know
what right the United States had more

Germany, France and Italy to split China

NEW YORK. Nov. 8. The personality
of Ll Hung Chang, says the Berlin cor
respondent of the London Times and the
New York Times, had long ceased to ex
cite any Interest In Germany. The pub
lic and the official world had discovered
that they had -been hlj dupes at the time
of his visit in 1896. Because of his title
of Viceroy, Earl Ll was treated with al
most royal honors In Germany, which
probably astonished the wily old Manda- I
rin himself. His hosts hoped that on his
return to China he would secure large
orders for ambitious German manufac
turers. Carnegie Elected Lord Rector.
LONDON. Nov. 8. Vice-Chnnoollor Ttnr,.

announced today the unanimous election
of Andrew Carnegie as lord rector. The
students greeted the announcement with
prolonged cheers and sang "He's a Jolly
Good Fellow." The vice chancellor re- 1

victs are: James Hoffman, aged 20. and
J. J. Poffenholz. aged 25, a soldier con
vict The wounded men are": John Green,
aged 21. and WUlard Drake, aged 19.
Fred Moore, aged 16, a negro, waa recap
The five men were discovered in the
barn of Fay Weishaar, a quarter of a
mile from Nortonvllle, Kan., about 3
o'clock this afternoon. Weishaar went
Into the barn and was ordered out at
i tne point of guns. He rushed to Nor
tonvllle and gathered a wagon load of
men who, with revolvers, shotguns and a
ew Winchesters, hastened to the scene.
The convicts saw the men coming and
rushed from the barn. The posse pur
sued them and a running duel resulted.
Thq convicts were at a disadvantage and
their shots had no effect, while at every
volley from the posse, one of the con
victs fell. After four of them fell, two
of them being killed, the other gave
himself up. The convicts had a rifle, a
shotgun and an old revolver. Hoffman
had the shotgun. He was struck first In
the hand. .He yelled and dropped the
shotgun. Just then a bullet entered his
back and he fell dead. Poffenholz died
40 minutes after being shot. Green was
brought down by a bullet In the knee.
Drake was shot twice In the right wrist
and arm. Drake says Southerland, an
Indian, was shot in the flsht In the
stockade. None of the citizens was hurt.
Two unarmed convicts were found hid
ing In a ravine in a farm near Jarbalo,
Kan., and they surrendered without re
sistance. They were Donald Norlo and
R. T. Davenport. They were first seen
by Hastings, who reported the fact
to the section gang of the
Leavenworth & Topeka Road, who in
turn reported the matter to the postmas
ter at Jarbalo. The postmaster, in com
pany with Dr. Woods, went to the scene
and found the convicts hidden in a
ravine and. being unarmed, they sur
rendered. The Sheriff of Douglas Coun
ty captured two convicts at Lawrence,
Ran. They are Ole Bobo, a half-breed
Indian, and Joseph H. Dekln, a soldier
serving a term for desertion and assault
to kill. Frank Thompson, the negro
desperado who led the Outbreak, is sup
posed to be near Lawrence, heavily
armed. He will probably not be taken
Nearly all the convicts came from Ok
lahoma and Indian Territory, and they
are supposed to be making for' that
country. They are a hard lot of men,
used to firearms and horses. Some hae
obtained both, but others are afoot and
defenseless. Warden McCliughey says
he will capture every one of the men.
In the districts around this city every
road and river crossing the fugitives
might be expected to use Is guarded by
armed men, the farmers having turned
out to earn the $60 reward that will be
paid for the return of each convict.
Those of the convicts who ure armed
are likely to be shot at sight
Warden McClaughey was In Kansas
City when the mutiny broke out, arrang
ing for the annual convention of the Na
tional Prison Reform Association, which
is to convene there tomorrow. He ar
rived home at the prison about three
hours later, and Immediately set to work
to recapture the convicts.
"I have not completed my Investiga
tion," said he today, "but I am of the
opinion that the outbreak was not due
to the fault of any of the guards. The
men were In charge of Arthur Trelford,
one of our best men, and I am sure he
did his duty. The reason for the escape
of the prisoners I believe to be the small
'number of guards available. Our appro
priation Is not sufficient to warrant the
employment of more guards, but I hope
that at the next session of Congress we
will be allowed more. We should have
nearly twice as many as we have."

THE SWITCHMENS' STRIKE.
Most of the Vacant Places on the Rio
Grande Have Been Filled.
DENVER, Nov. S. Manager Herbert, of
the Denver & Rio Grande system, re
ports that, notwithstanding the strike of
the switchmen, the company's trains have
been moving today with, very little delay.
He says, 83 per cent of the places made
vacant by the strike have already been
filled. The strjkers claim that the sw Itch
ing has been done today by yardmastcra
and other officials of the road, and that
the service has been very seriously crip

Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, Ivas Is

brotherhood to carry out the agreement
existing between the organization and the
Rio Grande Company, regardless of the
strike order of the Switchmen's Union of
ficials. This agreement, he declare?, cov
ers yard service. Meetings were held to
night by the Switchmen's Union and the
According to the story of the switch
men, the difficulties arose several weeks
ago. The union sent representatives to
Denver to meet the general superintendent
of the railway, the desire being to secure
the acceptance of a regular schedule,
such as Is In force between the railway
and other orders. Falling in this the griev
ance committee telegraphed for the grand
maater, and after his arrival he called at
the office of Manager Herbert. This con
ference, the switchmen say, was friendly.
Mr. Hawloy agreed to withdraw tne
clause in the schedule relating to wages
provided the remaining clauses were con
sidered. From Mr. Herbert's conversa
tion,' thby Say, theythoujhthf "approved:
of the agreement and only required the
arrangement of the details. While Mr.
"Hawley was In Pueblo on that particular
duty the report came to him of the dis
missal of several of the men In Denver,
including raemoers or tne grievance com
mittee, by the railroad. This brought
matters to a climax and a strike was de
cided upon Immediately.
An official of the road speaking of the
"The strike of these men Is not a serious
matter to the railroad. They Insisted thav
we should recognize their union by mak
ing a new schedule for the switchmen
working In the yards. We could not do
this without violating our agreement with
the Trainmen's Union. The schedule al
ready In force with the trainmen takes In
these yard switchmen and we cannot
oranch oft and recognize all the side
unions they want to form."
Switchmen employed by other roads
have refused to handle Rio Grande cars.
This applies only to freight trains, as the
passenger and mall trains will be han
dled by members of other railroad organ
izations, without protest from the switch
men. Vice-Grand Master Lee, of the Brother
hood of Railway Trainmen, stated that
tonight's meeting did not reach a final
decision as to its action on the strike, and
that another meeting would be held to
morrow night. He stated further that his
course had been Indorsed by Grand Mas
