I 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.

Li Hung Chang's estate will remain Intact for the use of his eldest son, who will provide for the other members of his family. Yuan Shi gal's successor In the Gov ernorship of Shan Tung Chang Yen Chun, Is an unknown man, who has been hold ing an unimportant, though lucrative, po sition as Grain Commissioner In. one of the inland towns of the province. He will be watched with the deepest solici tude, as the peace of China will largely depend upon his course. Wang Weng Shao, who Is 74 years of age and deaf, was never rated as a statesman or a diplomat. His appointment Is probably temporary. Telegraphic communication with Prince Ching was obtained today. He Is hastening to meet the court After consultation he will return with Wang Wen Shab, who is accompanying the court which Is now five days' journey from Kal Fong Fu. Emperor Kwang Hsi, report says, Is asserting himself and leading the impe rial cortege on horseback. Native papers declare that he mimoses tn Inn 11 crura to a revival of the military spirit, assuming th6 honorary position of commander-in-chief, and wearing a uniform. They also assert that he will compel the nobles to follow his example, to take military posi tions ana to study military science. 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. A special edict creates XI Hung Chang a Marquis and bestows on him the new name of LI Wen Chung, by which he will be known in history. 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 reform. HE KJTEW EARL LI. t 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 proach the distinguished Chinaman, owing to a friendship between the doctor's father and Earl Ll. that at nno timn ho -nma invited to accept of the hospitality of , wiu viceroys paiace ior ayear.'" apeak ing of the Earl's last Illness, Dr. Seaman said: "When I said good-by to Earl Ll last March I did not expect that he was so soon to leave his people. He was a very old man, and had been a sufferer from stomach troubles,, dyspepsia and Indiges tion all his life, at was because he took little or no exercise. In China It Is against the dignity of a man to be seen walking, and about all the walking LI did was to and from his sedan chair. I tried to argue Into him that for the sake of 0'9t0,t 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 4. .,, u.o uiai. euvcwiur ui me oiiiiu -- --- HM.MOU. his health he must tuke walks or other exercise, but In this respect he could not be reformed. "I do not Delleve that Ll would havo died had Dr. Mark been In attendance 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 table giant His physique was splendid, all except hlg legs, which were undevel oped and thin for want of exercise. They had become atrophied from Jack of use. "The incident which brought us togeth er closer than ever before was when we 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 than any other robber to enter the Islands. I answered him briefly, calling his atten tion to the efforts of Russia, England, Germany, France and Italy to split China and oald: 'I should think, your excel lency, you had enough bad eggs In your basket without wishing for another coun try that Is steeped In war.' The answer he liked, and from that moment he be came even more than ever a charming host" Not Popular in Germany. 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,. aldson, of the University of St. Andrews, 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."

A FIGHT NEAR NORTONVILLE Two of the Desperadoes Were Killed, Trro Wounded and Five Captured Unhurt Tvro More of Them Caught at Topeka. LEAVENWORTH, Kan., Nov. 8. All the police, Deputy Sheriffs and farmers in the country adjacent to Leavenworth were on the lookout today for the 26 Federal convicts who escaped from the 01 wasningion, 12 years ago tnls'montb. lim, , ,, )C4 stockade here yesterday. As a result two convicts have been killed, two wounded and Ave captured unhurt. The casual ties took place in a fight near Norton vllle, Kan., that resulted In the death or capture of five men. The two dead con 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 tured unhurt 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 alive. 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." Tvro Recaptured at Topekn. TOPEKA. Kan., Nov. 8. Two of the escaped prisoners from the Fedenl Peni tentiary were caught In North Topeka to night by the local police. 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 pled. W. G. Lee, vice-grand master of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, Ivas Is sued an order to the members of the 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 brotherhood. 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 striko said: "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 ter Morrlssey. MARYLAND S RETURNS. Assure the Democrats Control of Both Houses. BALTIMORE. Nov. 8.

Great fires are built most every night by the Yaquis in the mountains close to Guaymas, Mexico. In the recent fight between the Yaquis and the Mexican cavalry, a large number of Indians were killed, and they are now Holding weird ceremonies over the bodies, which they took to the highest point on the mountains surrounding Guaymas. From Gloria Mountain they watch the ap proach of posses, and are able to fight them to advantage. The Yaquis make raids nightly upon ranches. They have an abundance of corn, lots of horses and ammunition, and seem disposed to con tinue fighting. The Guaymas people fear an attack at night, and posses have been stationed outside of the city to arouse th people In case the Indians come. The situation Is more serious than It has been for some time. IVe-iv Lord Mayor Installed. LONDON. Nov. 8.

The "packing up" Is about at an end, and the baggage and freight will bo shipped to San Francisco at once. The organization of the Twenty-eighth, Infantry, wnich took place at this post, has been a matter of great Interest to Vancouver people. The order for Its or ganization was issued In February. Or ganization of the regiment was slow. At the end of the first three months, only about one-half of the number of men re quired were on hand, and the greater part of that time the only officers of the regi ment who Were on the ground were tho regimental commander, Colonel Mott Hooten, his Adjutant, Captain Goodln, and Chaplain C. C. Bateman. The next month witnessed a good increase In both, the ranks of officers and privates, and about five months ago the regiment was declared to be fully organized and offi cered The troops were paid today for the last time before leaving for the Philippines.
