One Day the Ultimatum of
DECISION MUST BE MADE AT ONCE
Concessions Made By Japan Will, It Is

of the Powers.
Shanghai, April 13. The Mercury to
' day reported that the Japanese have
presented an ultimatum to Li Hang
Chang, the Chinese peace commissioner,
demanding that China accept or refuse
the terms offered by Japan no later than
' tomorrow. The paper adds that Japan
has reduced her claim for indemnity by
100.000,000 yen, and -is also satisfied with
the cession of. Sian Tong peninsula, on
which Port Arthnr stands, and will not
demand additional territory.
ashington, April 13. The Shanghai
cablegram, stating that Japan had pre
sented to Li Hung Chang an ultimatum
to accept or reject the final peace terms
by tomorrow, is conceded by diplomats
to present the latest phase of the ques
tion and clear np misapprehension on
the subject. The cablegram was shown
to the secretary of the Japanese legation,
who said that, while the legation had
nothing farther than the advices of yes
terday, yet the Shanghai report appeared
consistent with the status of affairs as
understood at the legation. The armis
tice ran many days more, he said, yet
Japan doubtless did not want the final
agreement postponed until the last hour.
The army would be held in abeyance
until then, but it would be quite desira
ble that an agreement should be defi
' nitely reached beforehand, in order that
there should be no embarrassment in
holding the army dependent on a sudden
determination seven days hence. The
negotiations had first brought out what
Japan expected and what China was
L willing to yield. In order to adjust
dmerences between those positions,
Japan finally made some concessions.
These represented the largest conces
sions possible, and were in the nature of
At the Chinese legation it was said
that no news had been received regard
ing the report cabled from Shanghai,
that Japan had given China one day in
which to accept or refuse the terms of
peace. Neither had the legation received
any confirmation of the advices from
Japan, that an understanding had been
reached, and there is a strong dipposi
tion on the part of the Chinese to regard
the report as premature. An ominous
lull has occurred since the first brief dia
patch came from Japan that an under
standing had been reached. Yet the
concessions leading to the agreement
have not been reported, and it is stated
they will not be made known for a week
There is no doubt China has appealed to
Russia and other European . nations
against the terms Japan originally pro-
An interesting question arises as to
whether the unmistakable threats of
Russia, and the appeal of that nation for
intervention by the powers, was ante'
cedent or subsequent to the peace under
standing reported yesterday between
Japan and China. The view of the state
department officials is that the advices
from Russia are really based upon the
status of the peace negotiations several
days ago, and that since then the Japan
ese conditions have been materially
modified, and are now assuming each
shape as to make them more agreeable
to Russia or to other powers. As offic
ially stated, among the original Japanese
demands was one for the absolute ces
sion of Port Arthur. Although not
specifically stated, it is probable this in
eluded a cession pf a considerable tract
of country in the vicinity of the port.
As Port Arthnr ia within the limits of
the great province ot Mantchuria, this
demand, if persisted in, wonld conflict
directly with the Russian ultimatum de
livered at the very beginning of hostili
ties, and repeated more than once since
in a semiofficial manner, to-wit :
That she could not permit the acquisi
tion by Japan of any portion of Mant-churia.
Officials of the state degartment are
confident that' within the last few days
the Japanese demand on this point has
been modified so aa to permit only the
temporary occupation of Port Arthur,
perhaps only so long as the war indem
nity shall remain unpaid. To such a
stipulation, it is said, no reasonable ob
tion could be made, as it would be based
upon the precedent set by Germany in
imposing terms of peace upon France
when she retained the great French
fortress of Belfort until the indemnity
was paid. The practical effect of this in
that case was to cause the French to pay
the war indemnity in a space of time
far shorter than was allowed by the
treaty, in order to escape the humilia
tion of foreign occupancy of French ter
Of course, if Japan follows a similar
course in respect to Port Arthur, the
Russian government will make sure that
she bas ample guarantee that the occu
pied port will be evacuated within a fixed
period of time. It is also pointed out
that Japan may justly make such a de
mand for the temporary possession of
Port Arthur, bb the means of insuring
herself against a retaliatory war by
China, until the feeling of resentment
may have worn away, for, by the oc
cupancy of this strategic point, the
Chinese would find it almost impossible
o keep their communication open be
tween Peking and the sea in case of a
renewal of hostilities.
On the whole, officials here, assuming
that Japan pursues a policy of modera
tion, see nothing in this news from Rus
sia calculated to prevent the consumma
tion of peace, unless it should perhaps
encourage the Chinese to endeavor to re
cede from the terms already practically
agreed upon, in the hope of securing
better treatment from Japan while the
latter nation is under apprehension of
' Nellie BIy Was Wedded.
New Yobk, April 13. "Nellie Bly,"
who is one of the best-known newspaper
women in this country, is no longer Miss
Elizabeth Cochran. She is now Mrs.
Robert Seaman. Her husband is one of
the directors of the Merchants' Exchange
bank and a multimillionaire.' He is
nearly 70 years old. In business and
financial circles he is as well known as
his wife to the devotees of the Sunday
newspapers. The reports of the mar
riage, which came from Chicago, were
quite correct. It occured April 5 at the
rectory of the Church of the Ephiphany,
on Ashland avenne of that cltv. The
Rev. T, H. Morrison preformed the cere
mony. - The contracting parties had met
at a dinner in the Auditorium hotel two
weeks before, and formed an instant at
tachment. Miss Cochran did her first newspaper
work on the Pittsburgh Dispatch, which
was when she was 15 years old. She has
been engaged in similar work in New
York for eight years, and became famous
for the sensational character of her con
tributions to newspaper literature. One
of her first exploits was to feign insanity
and have herself incarcerated in the
Blackwell island asylum for the purpose
of describing her experiences. Her trip
around the world in 72 days in 1890 gave
ner considerame notoriety.
Against Free Silver.
Washington, April 13. The interest
the administration takes in the cam
paign against the free silver movement
is undisguised. The letter which Mr,
Cleveland is preparing to send to the
Chicago business men in reply to their
invitation to deliver an address upon the
currency will be no less emphatic than
that he addressed to the chamber of
commerce of New York early in 1892,
although it is probable that he will go

Secretary Carlisle.- will deliver two
speeches on the subject of the currency,
but largely devoted to silver. He will
probably speak once in Kentucky and
once in Tennessee in May. His Ken,

though there have been requests from
his old home in Lexington to talk there.
In Tennessee he will Bpeak at Memphis
or Nashville. Other members of the
cabinet will speak on the silver ques
tion, although no place has been fixed
on. They believe that a campaign of
education on the money question will
have' the effect of checking the move
ment toward free silver, which they be
lieve has been a serious menace to the
integrity of the democratic party.
