The St. LodU Launched and Christened
I) J Mrs. Cleveland.
Philadelphia, Nov. 12. Shortly after
12 oleck the magnificent steamship St.
Louis, of the American line, was suc
cessfully launched at the Cramps' ship
yards. The affair was witnessed by fully
50,000 people. Mrs. Cleveland, wife Of
the president, broke the traditional
bottle of champagne on the bow of the
noble ship as it glided down the ways,
at the same time uttering the words, "I
christen thee St. Louis." In this in
stance and for the first time since the
ceremony was observed at the shipyards,
the champagne was of American make.
All the preparations for the launch had
been carefully made, and, although the
ship is 120 feet longer than any that
ever has been launched, the difficult feat
of getting the vessel from the ways into
the water was accomplished without a
hitch. After the launch, invited guests
to the number of 400 were entertained at
lunch in the office of the builders.
Charles H. Cramp, in a speech of wel
come to President Cleveland, said that
with two exceptions the St. Louis was
the largest and most powerful ship in
the world. He referred to the progress
of shipbuilding under President CI eve
land's administration, and credited to
his policy the fact that such wonderful
results had been accomplished in Amer
ica. "The St. Louis," he said, "is built
"on American plans, by American work'
men and of American material. Twenty
six ships were recommended by Mr.
- Cleveland and authorized by congress.'
Concluding, he said that, while there
may be honest ditterences on questions,
national approval of Cleveland's vigor
ous naval policy would always be unani
The toast to President Cleveland was
drunk with cheers, and he made a felic
itous response, alluding to the part he
. had taken in restoring American com
merce and building up the navy.

Importance of Port Arthsr.
Washington, Nov. 12. The Japanese
legation has not received, up to noon
today, official confirmation of the cap
ture of Port Arthur The legation peo
ple say, however, if Port Arthur has
fallen, it will be 'the most disastrous
blow China has received. Counselor
Stevens, of the legation, said Port Ar
thur had been pronounced impregnable
by the naval experts of Germany. Li
Hung Chang had built there modern
gun factories, which rivaled those of
Kruppa. It is in some respects similar
to Brooklyn or Norfolk navy yards, al
though three times greater. Moreover
Li Hung Chang has centered there the
pick of the Chinese'army. ' It is pointed
out the capture, if effected, is mainly
important in giving the Japanese a for
tification inside of China, from which
they cannot hereafter be dislodged.
The Japanese soldiers will undoubtedly
make the place a depot of operations,
and it will also afford a protected shelter
for the Japanese fleet. The gun factor
ies, which have been the chief reliance
of Li Hung Chang would henceforth be
at the Eervice of Japan.
Port Arthur Captured by the Japanese.
London, Nov. 12. A Shanghai dis
patch says it is reported Port Arthur
was taken by the Japaneae yesterday
without resistance. The Japanese, after
bombarding the place a short time,

works, when the Chinese surrendered.
The general in command and chief offi
cers of the Chinese forces at Port Arthur
had abandoned the forts November 6,
and dissapeared. A portion of the Chi
nese fleet is at Taku. Several European
ministers are preparing to leave Peking
A Tokio correspondent gives addition
al detaila of the capture of Talien-Wan.
He says six forts on Talien-Wan bay,
mounting SO guns altogether, with all
their stores, ammunition, etc., were
captured. The enemy was completely
routed, and fled panic stricken. The
Japanese parliament has been sum
moned to meet in Tokio in December.
Japan Has Not Answered.
Washington, Nov. 12. Up to noon
today the Japanese had not accepted
the offer of the United States to act as
mediator in the war between Japan and
China. A cable fron the Japanese an
thorities was received this morning ask
ing for more explicit details. A lengthy
answer was sent, giving not only the
desired details, but adding the features
which it is believed will show the Japan
ese government the desirability of the
arrangement. China has already for
mally notified Secretary Gresham she
will join Japan in acknowledging the
independence of Corea, and will ' also
pay a cash indemnity. The amount she
will pay is not specified.
