Cf J VOL. VIII THE DALLES, OREGON, MONDAY, APRIL 1, 1895 NO 77 NOT IN THE ARMISTICE Exceptions of Great Import' ance Made by Japan WHERE SHE IS NOT IN POSSESSION 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 Japan. 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 that.it 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 blocked. 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.

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.

A few .years ago Miss Shields eloped with the son of H. E. Bnckner, a millionaire merchant of New York. The story of Buckner's conviction of thelt will bo remembered, as well as the fact that there was a strong indication that he went to prison rather than com promise the young woman, whose prop erly he was charged with stealing. When he was sent to the penitentiary, much interest was manifested in his pretty wife, who made every effort to secure his pardon. She was taken care of by prominent people, and remained here for some time, going to the convict camp to see her husband almost daily. It now transpires that she has secured a divorce, and her engagement to the Tennessee gentleman is announced. Tried In Those States. Baltimore. March 30.
