THE DALLES, OREGON, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1894.
NOW IN MANCHURIA
The Japanese Forces Have
Invaded China. .
ARE ADVANCING ON THE CAPITOL
Reported Provisional Agreement B
t ween Biigla and China--Yellaw
Ferer In Salvador.
London, Sept. 28. A dispatch from
Shanghai says it is reported the Japan
ese have succeeded in entering the Chin
ese province of Manchuria' and are ad
vancing upon the capital of Moukden.
It is also saidighting has taken place
between the invaders and Chinese at a
town between that city and the frontier.
' The engagement is said to have ended in
a decisive victory for the Japanese, who
established themselves in the position
previously occupied by the Chinese
troops. No details of this reports are
given and the Chinese at Shanghai dis
credit the report.
At the Japanese Legation.
Washington, Sept. 28. At the Jap
anese legation today no official confirma
tion of the reported Japanese invasion of
Manchuria and the reported decisive vic
tory of the Japanese near Moukden, the
capital of the Chinese province, could be
obtained. It was pointed out, however,
the invasion of Manchuria would be the
direct result 6f the Japanese victory at
Ping Yang, and the diplomats were will
ing to credit the news of a victory. The
report from Paris of the provisional
agreement between Russia and China,
said to have been effected in July, by
which Russia agrees not to cross the
Sir-i-Kol, was regarded as possible if not
probable, although the fact of its having
been kept so long a secret was believed
to militate against its authenticity. It
was said, however, such an agreement
made just as the trouble between China
and Japan was being precipitated, had
no bearing on that struggle and was
probably simply a provisional settlement
of the Pamirian question which long has
been a bone of contention.
Russia and China.
London, Sept. 28. A dispatch from
Paris to the Exchange Telegraph Com
pany says its correspondent there learns
on the best authority that" in July last a
provisional agreement was effected be
tween Russia and China in regard to
the future action of Russia in the Pa
mirs. It is agreed by the two countries
the forces of neither power should pass
the Sir-i-Kol range. The agreement re
established friendly relations between
Russia and China, and has an important
bearing upon the fortunes of China in
the present struggle. Russia, however,
the dispatch adds, is not likely to main
tain a friendly attitude toward China
without substantial terms.
Yellow Feier In Salvador.
San Francisco, Sept. 28. Private ad
vices from Salvador state that an epi
demic of yellow fever is raging through

of 24 hours. American Consul Pollock
was one of the first victims of the dis
ease, and his death was followed shortly
by that of Mrs. Crawford, a well known
lady of Oakland, Cal.

A Hunter Who Found More Game Than
The author of "Camp-Fires of a Na
turalist" was out by himself, looking
idly towards the woods now and then,
as he says, but not expecting to see
anything, when suddenly there ap
peared on the edge of this timber some
moving objects. He could not make
out what they were, but there were so
many of them that he concluded they
must be goats. He stood still waiting
for them to get nearer. Suddenly there
came out of the forest, not more than
seventy yards away, a huge, grizzly
bear. He says:
"Before I could realize what had
happened, out came another, then a
third, a fourth, a fifth, a sixth and a
"Just think of it, seven big bears in
sight all at once. I knew I was in a most
dangerous situation. On one band was
a bottomless precipice, and on the
other a herd of the most ferocious an
imals which range the mountains.
"There was only one thing to do,
and I did it to perfection. That was
to stand perfectly still and let the
bears go about their business. I was
hunting bears, but not those particular
"There I stood in perfectly plain
sight, but they did not see me. They
were walking fast, and I had a capital
opportunity to observe their mode of
travel. I no longer wondered at my
not being able to overtake them on the
trail. They went swinging along in a
sort of shambling trot or canter almost
as fast as the gait of a horse. Some
would stop for a second or two, turn
ing over logs and stones, and then hur
ry on to overtake the rest.
"As soon as they were out of sight I
hastened to assure myself that I was
still alive, and to wipe the sweat from
my face. I could easily have put a bul
let through any of them, but what
would have happened then? I might
have been set upon by the whole gang,
ind should not have made a fair meal
for one of them."
" A Presumptuous Secretary.
Emperor William I. of Germany at
the close of the French war dictated to
his private secretary an address which
he intended to deliver to the German
army. The final sentence ran thus:
"But do not forget that we must all be
grateful toward Providence; for Provi
dence has willed that we should be the
instrument destined to accomplish what
are such great events in the history of
the world." The secretary, having his
own ideas, as even the secretaries of
emperors and kings cannot help hav
ing, wrote: "Providence has permitted.'
"Stop!" said the aged emperor. "Do
you imagine that I could have sup
ported the burden of this war if I had
not entertained the firm conviction that
Providence wilted it? Write the word
as I dictated it."
Chinese Emperor Dissatisfied.
London, Sept. 28. A dispatch from
Shanghai says that the emperor is dis
satisfied with the course events are tak
ing, and that affairs are gradually work
ing toward a coup d'etat.

reported lost while running from the.
