laps Sink One of China's Best War
Tien Tsi.v, July 31. A naval battle
was fought yesterday between the ChiJ
nese and Japanese fleet. The Japanese
sank the Chinese warship Chen Yuen.
Two large cruisers supposed to be the
vessels built for China by Armstrong,
were captured or destroyed. The Chen
Ynen was a- battleship of 7,400 tons dis
placement, carrying 144 inch armor
and compound armor at water line.
Her battery included four 12-inch gnns
protected by armored breastworks, and
two small Krupps, eleven HotchkissB
cannon and tubes for Whitehead tor
pedoes, two 8)4 -inch and 6-inch Krupp,
and a secondary battery of Hotchkies
revolving cannon'.' The Chen Ynen
was built for China at the Stettin works.
She is a sister ehipof the Ling Yuen,
and the most powerful ship in the Chi
nese navy; with the exception of the
The battle was hotly contested, but
the Japanese handled their guns, ships
and torpedoes with more skill than the
Chinese. Tha Chinese fleet engaged
'carried nearly one thousand men and a
large number are reported killed or
drowned. Later dispatches say that
few, if any Chinese engaged in the bat
tle escaped. Two German officers in
command of the Chen Yuen, are re
ported to have, met death with the crew.
China No Match for Japan.
Yokohama, July 31. The following
official statement' of the difficulties be
tween China and Japan has been issued
by the Japanese government :
"Japan and China were approaching a
settlement of their difficulties when
China suddenly suggested that Japan
withdraw their fleet from Corea and
give a formal compliance with the
Chinese demands by the 20th, other
wise the whole Chinese force were to
land, and a sea advance upon the part of
China was to be made. The Japanese
regarded this as an ultimatum but acting
upon the advice of friendly ' powers
agreed to the proposals in principle in
an amended form, at the same time de
claring that if the threatened Chinese
advance was made on the 20th, it would
be regarded as an overt act. - It is con
jectured the Japanese commanders were
instructed to be on the watch for Chinese
war ships, and seeing the latter advan
cing July 27th opened fire. The Japan
ese do not believe the KoW Shnng was
flying the British flag but using, the flag
as a rase.
The Deadlock On.
Washington, July 31. The tariff
deadlock is breaking up. After being
together two hours this afternoon the
house conferees said positively there
would be no agreement this w.eek. One
of the conferees added, that concessions
would be made to the house. The sen
ate conferees say it stands very much as
it stood all along.
The house conferees insist that if the
bill is reported back on the lines they
propose it be found that there are votes
enough in the Eenate to pass it, and urge
the senate conferees to give the bill a
trial on these lines.

Debs In Terre Haute
Tekrb Haute, July 29. Packed like
sardines were the people who listened to
Debs in the opera honse tonight. Debs
said that he had always been in favor of
arbitration and opposed to strikes until
the gauntlet was thrown down and an
effort made to crush organized labor;
that there .was a time when not to strike
meant degredation and .dishonor, and
this was that time.'. He made quite a
lengthy address s and was vociferously
applauded. His' statement was:
"I want to say that I did everything in
my power to prevent the Pullman
He declared he had no voice in order
ing the Pullman strike, and said he was
unalterably opposed . to , strikes. He
quoted from a . Chicago - paper of May
1893. which showed, he said, that the
general managers of the roads had at
that time so organized themselves that
sympathetic strikes on every road in
Chicago would be . forced. Debs entered
largely into the political features of the
strike and declared himself .a populist.
Throughout Debs' speech was temperate
in tone and clear in 'diction. His re
marks were so stirring as to frequently
cause outbursts 'of applause from the
audience. - The labor leader did not ad
mit defeat; but on the contrary, declared
that the war against Pullman would be'
carried, to the bitter end. He said
further that so far as he was concerned

V '- Tariff Bill sis First., .
Washington, July .29. The, proceed
ings in the senate during the present
week will depend largely upon the con
ferees on tne tariff bill. I they , should
reach a conclusion during the week, as
everyone expects they will, the report
will be made in the senate, that body
having granted the request for a confer
ence, and the report will be taken up at
the first opportunity. Whatever ; the
nature of the report, there is sure ti be
more - or. less debate "upon it. Even
should the senate bill be accepted in its
entirety by the bouse, there will be
some speeches on the part of. the tariff
leaders and . possibly other senators.
though in this event there would be a
general disposition- to curtail them loth
in length and number on account of the
desire which is felt in : all ' quarters to
bring the session to a close at the ear
liest date. This disposition would be
allowed to control in case- the report
should indicate any material concessions
to tbe house. In case of. reductions on
coal, iron ore or sugar, there are
democratic senators who would . resist
the report, and another family quarrel
on the floor of the senate would- be the
inevitable result. There are also demo
cratic senators who would make
strenuous opposition to material changes
in the metal , woolen and cotton sche
dules, and the republicans would in the
latter event be found participating. It
is not probable that Quay will submit
quietly to any important modification
of the metal schedule, nor that - A Id rich
would permit changes in -the rates on
woolens to be made without entering a
vigorous protest and resulting' in the
prolongation of the. debate wjth the end
of forcing a return to the senate rates.
"Tne first day of the' week will be given
up to the sundry civil appropriation bill,
which he committee on . appropriations
expects to report Monday. This always
arouses more or less debate. ,The bill
this year will probably prove" no' excep-'
tioh. and it is likely that" two or three
days' will be devoted to. it unless it
should be sidetracked by the tariff.
With the sundry civil bill disposed of,
the general deficiency bill would; be . the
only appropriation bill remaining enact-
ed upon by the senate. -That has; not
yet been considered by the committee
on appropriations but wfll probably be
in shape to be considered by; the senate
by the time the sundry ciyil bjll is out
or tne way. .tour ot the appropriation
bills are in conference and reports upon
these may be expected during the" week,
with; the possibility of more or less de
bate on eaCh. ; If time : permits,; the
general calendar presents a great variety
of matter for tbe consideration of the
senate.- ' . : r " y.
