DEMANDS OF JAPAN
No Prospect of China's As
senting to Such Terms.
LITTLE HOPE NOW FOR MEDIATION
BMTf Fighting Reported North of Port
ArthurThe Chinese Claim to
Shanghai, Nov. 17. In diplomatic
circles here the success of mediation be
tween China and Japan is regarded as
hopeless. It is rumored that japan's
minimum demands are the surrender of
the Chinese fleet and the payment of an
indemnity of $125,000,000, Japan to oc
cupy Port Arthur, Wei-Hai-Wei and
the foremost ports until the indemnity
has been paid. These is no prospect of
China assenting to such terms.
Heavy Fighting; Near Fort Arthnr.
New Yobk, Nov, 27. A special cable
gram from Shanghai says : A Spanish
cruiser has brought the details of heavy
fighting a few miles north of Fort Ar
thur. The Chinese, under Generals
Sung Ching and Nieh Liu, numbered
23,000 troops, and, as ' usual, claim a
victory. The garrison of Fort Arthur is
dwindling, through desertions, and the
place ia almost deserted. The Japanese
squadron outside of Wei-Hai-Wei can
scarcely miss Admiral Ting's six vessels
which left Taku Tuesday. "
To Fight Tor the Mikado.
San Fkancisco, Nov. 17. M. B. King,
chief engineer of the Pacific coast divi
sion of the United State3 geological and
topographical surveying department,
has tendered his resignation, it is said,
to enter the service of the Japanese gov
" eminent, and will leave on the next
steamer for Japan. It is possible the
representatives of the Chinese govern
ment in this city will prevent King from
&Uing his contract.
Letter Describing the Massacre Was
Written by an American.
London, Nov. 17. In view of the fact
that it was Mr. McGhan, an American,
who first forced the attention of the civ
ilized world to the Bulgariae atrocities,
it is interesting to note that the letter
relative to the massacre of thousands of
Christian men and women, made pub
lic by Mr. Hagopian, chairman of the
Armenian Patriotic Association, was
written by an American citizen. His
name would be divulged were it not
that the publication of it would place his
life in jeopardy.
The Westminster Gazette this after
noon, commenting upon the story of
the Armenian -massacre, says : Nothing
but an Arab raid can compare with the
brutality in Armenia, and in Africa the
victims are at least given the chance of
slavery. The porte has carried out none
of its promises, and it is time it was
brought sternly to book. If it persists
in giving a free hand to its governors in
Asia Minor and confines itself to send
ing out transparently false official con
tradictions, it. must take the conse
quences, and the sooner it is told this,
Like Fonrlng Water Into a Selve.
London, Nov. 17. The Economist to
day says it thinks the days of excessive
cheapness of money are drawing to a
close. It adds that little dependence can
be placed upon Russian supplies and ob
jects to the form of the new American
bonds. The paper also says :
"Unless there is a radical change in
the American currency system, putting
gold into the treasury is like pouring
water into a seive."
The French In Al.lca.
Pahis, Nov. 17. A disDaleh f roTin
G?and Bassam, Western Africa, dated
November 12, says that a French for
under Commander Pineau recently had
a tight with natives at Akapless. On
the French side, a sergeant was killed
and two officers and several riflemen
were wounded. The natives lost heavily
Eagland and France. -
Paris, Nov. 17. The Journal publishes
an improbable story that the ministers
who attended the British cabinet council
November 4th, discussed the eventuality
of declaring war against France.
Highest of all in Leavening Power.
The Flood In London.
London, Nov.. 17. The floods become
more serious every day. - The Thames
rose four inches at Windsor during the
night. Eton college is closed, and all
the. boys have been sent home. Not
since 1881 has the river' been so high.
At Oxford Christchurch meadows are
under four feet of water. The Magda
lene gardens are in a like condition. In
every direction the water is rising
rapidly. Many of the undergraduates
today have been punting over private
gardens and hedges. St. Ann's church,
below Folley bridge, . has two feet of
water over its floor, and there are three
feet of water in the railroad station. On
all sides the floods are undermining and
weakening bridges and culverts. The
embankment at Maiden Head is in an
equally bad state, the waves beating
against the drawing room windows, and
many beautiful - houses have suffered
severely. The damage, though not ap
parent, will reach into hundreds of
thousands of pounds. Bridges, etc.,
have been washed away, and crops and
hay stacks have been destroyed in all
the flooded districts.
At 7 o'clock this evening the Thames
was reported 6 feet 2 inches above the
summer level. At Chertz it is still ris
ing, and the only communication with
the town is by boat. The London &
Southwestern railway has been swept
away at Egbam. The damage was
caused by the bursting of an embank
ment. At St. Neots they are under three
feet of water. At Bedford and Cam
bridge the branches of the Northwestern
railway are impassable. The trouble
grows worse everywhere. The storm is
the worst that has occurred since 1832.
A relief fund has been started. The
subscription list is headed by the queen,
who gives 50.
No Important Documents Taken.
Paris, Nov. 17. La' France publishes
an interview today with General Mer-
cier, minister of war, in which he says
no important documents were extracted
from the war office. Schoenbreck and
Von Caasel, the Germans arrested upon
suspicion of being engaged in an exten
sive espoinage conspiracy, both denied
being concerned in any conspiracy.
Papers seized at their residences, how
ever, clearly demonstrated their guiit,
and they are expected to be . severely
Over Two Millions of Gold So Far
Drsun From the Sub-Treasures. '
Washington, Nov. 17. Today's with
drawals of gold from the sub-treasury
in New York, presumably to buy bonds
from the United States, amounted to
$425,000, against $975,000 withdrawn
yesterday. The total amount of gold
withdrawn from the several sub-treas
uries since the bond call was issued is
Relations of Russia and England.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 17. Many
Russian newspapers view favorably the
idea of a cordial understanding, it is be
lieved, would be of great advantage to
both powers and would tend to insure
European peace. The Novosti approves
of Great Britain's endeavor to restore
peace in the East and blames Germany
for placing obstacles in the way.
For the Madagascar Campaign.
Paris, Nov. 17. The special committee
today voted the credits for the Mada
gascar campaign. Nine members sup
ported the government's proposal and
two opposed it. The committee then
adjourned until November 20, when its
report will be read.

Admiral von AVemer, a h:p;U authori
ty in naval matters in flerra.-iuy, de
scribes in a work recently published
the behavior of armor-plated men-of-war
in a heavy sea- He says: "Even
with a moderate gale and sea tin
armor-plated cruiser; if going- against
the wind, will find herself ' in. condi
tions similar to those, of a stcx-m at
least the crew will .have that impres

disagreeable. The wavers' puSJicd by
the advancing prow swecpleonUnually

windows and portholes must be closed,
and air reaches the lower decks, where
the heat increases unbearably, only
through the artificial ventilators. AVith
the exception of the specially protected
command bridge, all the uncovered
portions of the ship are impassable;
thus the whole crew must bear as well
as they can the hell of the closed decks.
On such a ship no one can feel com
fortable; and when there is a storm in
which a sailing ship would feel com
paratively at case, the crew of an
armor-plated ship imagines itself to be
in a heavy hurricane which threatens
destruction at every -minute. The long,
narrow forepart of e ship, which is
not borne lightly by the water, and is
rendered extremely, heavy by the
mighty ram and the armored deck and
the cannon and torpedoes, forces the
ship in a high sea to pitchings and roll
ings of such an ' extraordinary kind
that they cannot be described. The
crew of such a ship is not only ex
posed to mortal dangers, but in the
voyages they make render them ex
tremely, and dangerously nervous; the
mental impressions they receive wear
them out and make the profession
A RUSSIAN EMPEROR'S METHOD.
How He Replenished and Maintained the
. Imperial Treasury.
Among . other expedients to raise
money, Ivan resigned the crown in
favor of a Tartar khan, who was bap
tized under the name of Simeon, says
the Gentleman's Magazine. Ivan
feigned to withdraw himself from pub
lie affairs, but in realty he held on to
them, and made the new czar call in
all the charters formerly granted to the
monasteries and bishoprics and all the
charters were canceled. The . curious
interregnum, or by what other name it
should be designated, lasted nearly a
year, and then Ivan declared he did not
like the new regime, and dismissing
the baptized heathen, again took up
the scepter which, as a matter of fact,
he had never really discarded.
He issued fresh charters to the monas
teries, but was careful to keep back
several fine slices of the revenues, ex
torting from some of them fifty thou
sand and from some others one hundred
thousand rubles annually. -We shall
see, as Ivan character is unfolded, that
this spoliation of the monasteries was
not the only thing in which he resem
bled our own merry monarch, Henry
VIII. He would send his agents into
the various provinces, there to buy up
at low prices the whole of some partic
ular commodity for which the province
After retaining the monopoly for
awhile he would sell for a high rate
and even compel merchants to buy at
the prices he named. He followed a
similar course with foreign imports,
creating a monopoly and forbidding
others to sell their stock until he had
disposed of his own. By these means
he cleared two hundred thousand
rubles in a year. : . ,

The readers of. this" paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least one
dreaded disease that science has been
able to cure in all its stages and that is
Catarrh. . Hall's Catarrh Cure is the
only positive cure now known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a con
stitution'al disease, requires a constitu
tional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is taken internally, acting directly upon
the blood and mucous surfaces of the
system, thereby destroying the, founda
tion of the disease, and giving the pa
tient strength by building up the consti
tution and assisting nature to do its
work. The proprietors have so much
