Exceptions of Great Import'
ance Made by Japan
It Does Not Apply to the Lower Coast
of Cnlna, Formosa and the
Fisher Islands.
Simonosaki, March 30. The three
weeks' armistice agreed to between
Japan and China applies only to the lo
calities of Monkden, the Gulf of Pe-Chi-X.1
and the Shan-Tang peninsula.
A conference was held between the
Japanese plenipotentiaries and Li Hang
Chang's eon-in-law, Lord Li, preceding
the declaration of the unconditional
armistice declared by the emperor of
Washington, March 30. Secretary
Gresham has received official confirma
tion of the declaration of an uncondi
tional armistice by the emperor of
Japan. It is not understood here that
this is in any sense equivalent to a dec
laration of peace, but it is believed that
there is not likely to be a resumption
of hostilities. The negotiations may
continue for a long time before a peace
treaty- is signed, and it is quite certain
that Japan will abate none of her de
xnands on account of the armistice. In
fact, the granting of the latter is looked
upon as a shrewd move by the Japanese
emperor to diminish the harmful effect
of the attack upon Li Hung Chang. If
the war were prosecuted now, it would
have the effect of forcing the peace ne
gotiations to a speedy conclusion, and it
is realized by the Japanese that in the
Resent state of feeling caused by the at
tack they could scarcely insist upon as
favorable terms of peace as can be real
Ized after the lapse of a few weeks, when
the first impression will have worn off.
It is noted here with interest that the
terms of the armistice do not apply to
the lower coast of China, and particu
larly to Formosa and the Fisher islands
This is taken to mean that the Japanese
have determined to occupy Formosa be-,
fore the peace negotiations are com
pleted, and the explanation of this pur
pose is found in the fact is almost
an invariable rule of international law
that a nation ' must be in actual armed
possession of, a piece of territory as
basis for a demand for its cesjion.
Now that suspension of hostilities has
been directed there is a renewal of inter'
est as to terms of peace to follow
While there is no definite information
on the subject at the Chinese legation,
the opinion prevails that a money in
demnity will be paid, largely in silver,
as that is the metal in common use in
China. Those most familiar with China
say there is no gold coin in circulation
there, although that country has hereto
fore purchased large supplies of gold
bars, and from this accumulation has
made heavy gold exports.
The officials of the Japanese legation
believe that the next step will be the is
Buance of a proclamation by Japan, and
unofficial word has already reached the
legation that this has been done. Con
fidence is expressed that the emperor's
proclamation will be accepted at once by
the armies. There is telegraphic com
munication with the various divisions
at Port Arthur, New-Chwang and Wei
Hai-Wei, although it takes twelve hours
to reach the last named place.
worst since the memories of the March
storm of 1834, which continued for three
days. Heavy thunder and vivid light
ning accompanied this storm, a feature
aot usual at this season. The velocity
of the wind just before daybreak was
terrific, and but for the heavy, wet snow,
which served to hold things in their
places, much damage wonld no doubt
have been done. At 5 :20 the wind was
blowing at the rate of 48 miles an hour,
bat it slowly decreased up to noon, when
it registered 34 miles. A gable of the
Columbine schoolhouse was blown out..
Stones weighing 35 pounds were . blown
over 30 feet, while heavy """blocks lay
piled up over 80 feet from the building.
The tramway and cable companies had
great difficulty in moving their cars, and
many of the street railway lines are
At 6 p. m. the snow was about a foot
deep in this city, and was badly drifted.
During the early part of the day trains
on the railroads east and west were con
siderably delayed. The storm was ex
ceptionally' severe in Western Colorado.
Observer Bradenburg says the storm
will abate during the night, and colder
weather will follow. It is now rapidly
advancing southeastward, and .tomor
row's indications are that Texas and the
Gulf states will have a touch of it.
Worst Snowstorm Colorado Has
Known In Years.
Denvkr, March 30. Colorado expet-
ienced today the worst snowstorm of
many months. A tremendous gale blew
from the north, but as the snow melted
rapidly, traffic will not be seriously lm
peded. The snowstorm continued all
day with unabated fury. It was the
Glenwood Sfbibgs, March 30. The
weather here, which for a week or ten
days had been very warm and springlike
suddenly changed yesterday, and a cold
rain set in, which continued late in tbe
night, when it turned to snow. It is a
very hard storm, and it is thought many
cattle that have struggled through the
winter will perish.
Castlb Rock, Colo., March 30. The
worst snow and windstorm of the season
has prevailed here since an early hour
this morning. It is blowing at a terrific
rate, and snow drifting badly, and should
the storm continue, as at present, it will
impede railway travel. Eighteen inches
of snow has fallen at Central City. -
Lbadville, Colo., March 30 The
weather is very blustery and cold at this
place. Tbe snow has been blowing In
clouds all day. A like condition of af
fairs exists at Brighton. Colo., and fears
are entertained that there will be great
loss of stock. Business is entirely sue
pended at that place.

so today.
Chadbon, Neb., March 30. A heavy
storm has been raging in the Black hills
since early this morning, and all tele

and Dead wood is cut off. A large num

From Yukon Gold Fields.
Poet Townsend, Wash;, March 30.
The first news of this season from the
Ynkon river gold fields was received to
day upon the arrival of T. C. Healy, a
trader, who came out overland to Dyea,
and hence by steamer Alki to hurry a
shipment of supplies to the mining
camps, all provisions being exhausted
except coffee. The last sack of flour sold
for $16. Over 1000 miners are living on
less than half rations and undergoing
severe hardships, but it is believed they
can subsist on the present supplies until
the steamer reaches there in July, al
though many will be incapacitated from
labor next summer on account of the
winter's famine.
The reason supplies ran short was ow
ing to nonarrival of the steamer Arctic
which was abandoned by Captain Peter
son at Fort Yukon last autumn, and was
unable to reach tbe mining settlements.
