Reply of the Hova Govern
THE BRITISH CONSUL TO BLAME
St. Petersburg Journal -Declares Japan
Must Kxplain to tbe Powers lor
Refuging; China's Peace. . .
Poet Lewis, Island of Mauritius, Nov.
"29. The reply of the Hova government
to the French ultimatum haa been pub
'listied. Madagascar agreed the French
resident-general shall act as an interme
diary between the Hova government
-and the foreign powers, France is to
carry out Buch public works as the
Madagascar judges deem necessary.
They propose that all disputes between
France and themselves be settled by a
mixed court. Lastly, the Hovas de
mand the delimitation of French terri
tory around Diego Sayrens, and the
right to import munitions.
China on Her Knees.
Washington-, Nov. 28. China has suc
cumbed to the inevitable and has sued
for peace. Her proposals will be pre
sented to' Japan through the United
States ministers at Peking and Tokio,
thns promising a termination -of the war,
as tbe result, in part at least, of the ex
ercise of the good offices of the United
States. It is not possible at this time to
learn the terms of China's proposition,
as banded to Minister Den by, but it is
-probable it provides for bat two conces
sions a money indemnity and a relin
quishment of the suzerainty over Corea.
It is improbable that the first tender
will be accepted by Japan, as such over
tures are rarely accepted, but this prop
osition will open the way to a counter
offer of terms by Japan, through Min
ister Dun, and the negotiations, if suc
cessful, and if they follow the usual
"course, will lead to a trace, under proper
guarantee, or a preliminary agreement
to cease hostilities, and, finally, to. the
aiguature to a definite treaty of peace.
Jnst how this proposition will be brought
about"i8 not known yet. It is probable,
however, that as the matter is in the
hands of the American ministers in
China and Japan, the visit of Mr. Det
ring, commissioner of maritime affairs
at Tien-Tsin, to Japan, is to be directly
connected with the peace negotiations,
as has been supposed.
Would Not Receive Detring.
London, Nov. 28. A dispatch to the
Central News from Tokio says that Com
missioner Detring and his suite sailed
for Tien-Tsin today. Count Ito, the
Japanese prime minister, declined to re
ceive the commissioner, stating that he
would only receive an envoy who had
been directly appointed by the Chinese
government at Peking, and would hold
no communication with the viceroy's
New Yobk, Nov. 28. The Herald's
special from Shanghai this mormrjg says :
"The overtures for peace made by Mr.
Detring, on behalf of China, to Japan,
have been totally rejected, as Mr. Det
ring had 'bo credential from Peking.
This fact confirms the belief that he only
went to Japan in order to pave the way
for Viceroy Li Hung Chang, who is now
execrated everywhere in China. Det
ring bore a letter from Li Hang Chang
to the mikado. The failure of Mr. Det
ring's mission confirms the belief in the
downfall of Li Hung Chang. The Japan
ese will most likely refuse to desist from
the war until Peking is reached.
The Destruction or Derelicts. ,
London, Nov. "29. The admiralty and
board of trade committee, which has
been considering the subject of the des
truction of derelict vessels, has made jts
, report. The committee does not advise
1 the adoption by the government of any
, vscheme for the destruction of abandoned
vessels or the holding of an international
conference on the subject. It recom
mends a better reporting of derelicts as
a character, location, etc., and a period
ical publication of such reports. The
report further says ' that the dangers of
disaster resulting from collision with
the derelicts is probably greatly exag
gerated, as the number afloat at one
time in the entire North Atlantic had
Highest of all in Leavening Power.
A pun .A. rr nil
not exceeded 19. The publication of in
formation in regard to derelict vessels
given in charts issued by the United
States would be impracticable, and its
use would be likely to mislead mariners
and needlessly alarm them.
Both Sides are to Blame.
London, Nov. 29. The reported Jap
anese atrocities at Port Arthur are- con
firmed from .various sources, but it is
believed they were due to continued at
rocities upon the part of the Chinese.
A letter to the Times from Tokio, dated
October 14, eays the Chinese do not take
prisoners. From the dead and wounded
vanquished they shear off the heads and
string them together with a rope passed
through the mouth and the gullet. The
Japanese have seen these ghastly rem
nants of their comrades. A barrel fall
of mutilated remains were found by the
Japanese after the battle of Ping Yang.
One Says Be Will be Summoned to
Save the Country. -
London, Nov. 28. From Tein-Tsin
the Central News hears: Li Hung
Chang has gone to Pao Lin Foo,- his
usual winter residence', and the seat of
the provincial government. His de
parture has given rise to many false ru
mors tirthe effect that he has .been de
graded? The viceroy's friends say that
the time is near when he will be sum
moned to Peking to save the country by

London, Nov. 28. According to the
dispatches from Shangahai a sensation
was caused by a memorial to the throne
signed by over 120 high officials, im
peaching Li Hang Chang and charging

ception. The memorial also eays Li
Hung Chang rejoiced at tbe Japanese
victories, and prevented the Chinese
