ORIENTAL WAR ENDED
China and Japan Come to an
TERMS OF PEACE ARE NOT KNOWN
What Eitrst tHu Not Been Announced
--What Caused tbe Delay in the
Washington, April 12. Official ad
vices received at tbe Japanese legation
today from Japan, indicate that an un
derstanding has been reached between
the Japanese and Chinese plenipoten
tiaries, and news of the definite conclu
sion of peace may be expected at any
time. Tbe exact terms of peace cannot
be ascertained, but it is understood that
in response to the repeated requests of
the Chinese plenipotentiaries have
granted some concessions.
As brief as the foregoing official mea
sage is, it marks tbe close of the Japan-
China war,; barring the possibility, of
course, of some unexpected hitch at the
last moment. : The announcement of the
exact terms of peace is to come, but from
what is known of the negotiations thus
far, the general nature of the terms is
evident. It was officially announced
that the terms being insisted on were as
First The independence of Corea.
Second The permanent cession of the
island of Formosa to Japan.
Third An indemnity of 300,000,000
taels, Chinese money. ' .
Fourth The permanent occupation of
Port Arthur and immediate surrounding
w Fifth A new Japan-China treaty,
opening China to commerce.
Tbe two conditions which have caused
trouble are the permanent occupation of
Fort Arthur and the payment of 300,
000,000 taels. While no official informa
tion is available, and no statement what
ever regarding the terms of peace can be
. obtained, probably these are the only
conditions in which the Japanese pleni
potentiaries have yielded. Just how
much they have yielded on the ooenpa
tion of Port Arthnr may have vital con
sequences. If J.hey have yielded entirely
it removes Japan from all occupancy of
the mainland and from the strategic
command of the Gulf of Pecbili, leading
to Peking. At one time Japan was will
ing to occupy Port Arthur for a term of
years, and this may be the ground of
agreement, although it is necessarily
conjectural at present. The purpose of a
temporary occupation, it is said, would
be to prevent China from rearming and
retaliating against Japan for a term of
years, at least. If the money demand
has been reduced, little significance will
attach to the fact, except that it will
lighten China's burden. ' '
The Assault on Chans;.
Toxio, March 29. Correspondence of
the United Press, per - steamer Coptic
On March 24, the third conference of the
peace plenipotentiaries took place. It
began at 3 p. m., and lasted nntil 4:30,
and when the plenipotentiaries separated
a satisfactory termination of the war was
within sight. The viceroy, Li, entering
his palanquiu, was carried rapidly to
ward his lodging. So narrow was the
street that a space of only nine feet re
roained clear on either side of the palan
quin. In that space policemen were
stationed throughout the entire distance
at short intervals.
When more than two-thirds had been
traversed of tbe 600 yards separating the
conference building from the viceroy's, a
pistol was fired by a man standing under
the eaves of a sandal-maker's shop. The
viceroy threw up bis head and raised bis
hand to his left cheek, from which blood
was flowing copiously. A moment after
ward he was in the hands of his French
and Chinese physicians. . It was found

that a bullet had penetrated a little be
low the left eye and grazing the cheek
bone bad lodged under the nose.
Tbe excitement and indignation caused
by the event were indeBcrible. The
Japanese plenipotentiaries hastened to
the viceroy's lodging to inquire and con
dole. ' Count Ito telegraphed to the em
peror in Hiroshima asking that the two
chief court physicians be despatched at
once to attend tbe illustrious patient.
The emperor issued a rescript declaring
that the country had been dishonored,
and invoking his subjects everywhere to
guard against Buch national disgrace.
Tbe empress dispatched two nurses with
bandages rolled by her own hands. The
nobles, the houses of the diet, the jour
nalists, the chamber of commerce, the
universities, the public schools, the
municipalities, the prefectures all sent
telegrams of condolence and delegates to
express their profound sorrow.
The viceroy's assailant proved to be a
youth of 26, by name Koyama Roknn
osuke. Of small stature, meager frame
generally insignificant appearance, and
wearing the ehabbiest of garments, he
seemed the last person in tbe world to
be plotting, single-handed against the
life of a foreign empire's greatest states
man, surrendering quietly a rusty six
shooter that he carried in his sleeve, he
walked to prison with the police and
answered the questions of the magistrate
without the least perturbation.. His
father was a member of the prefectural
assembly of the Gumma prefecture,
away up in tbe north of Japan. Watch
ing tbe course of events for some years
back, Bokunosuke had come to the con
clusion that as tbe control of China's in
terference in Corean affairs was vested
in the Viceroy Li, on him also rested the
ultimate responsibility for all Corea's
foreign complications.. ' There could be
no permanent peace in the Orient bo
long as the viceroy lived. - Hence he de
termined to kill the old statesman, and
had even projected a voyage to China for
that purpose, but his means 'proved in
sufficient. : Barely by great economy,
had be succeeded in traveling 600 miles
to Simonosaki, procuring en route an
ancient six-shooter in Yokohama. (
Dlseuss the Income Tax.
.New Yobk, April 12. A conference
was held yesterday between represents
tives of several transatlantic steamship
companies to discuss the subject of the 2
per cent exaction on incomes, and, if
thought best by the majority, to organ
ize for the purpose of attacking the con
stitutionality of . the new law. The
meeting was a secret but informal one,
and the matter was discussed generally.
as it would if enforced affect the foreign
steamship companies docking and trad
ing in this port.
The companies, it is said, take the
stand that as the principal lines are for
eign corporations, their ' shares being
held by foreigners, and tbe earnings of
each voyage not being credited until the
arrival of vessels on the other side, they
are not liable to the income tax.
' The agents present were loath to talk
on the subject, and beyond the fact that
the meeting adjourned without taking
any action as to whether concerted ac
tion should be taken against the en
forcement of the law no information
could be obtained.- Vernon H.Brown,
of the Canard line, when seen last night
at his home, however, said that the sub
ject was discussed informally, and that
it was finally referred by each company
to its respective counsel, who will report
back at a future conference of the agents,
who will then take such action as the
