ACCEPTED BY JAPAN
Hawaii's Arbitration Propo
sition Finding Favor.
DETAILS LEFT UNTIL A LATER DATE
Matter to be Arbltratert Include All
IMsputes Mow Fending Between
the Two Countries.
Washington, July 30. The Japanese
government has accepted the offer by
Hawaii' to arbitrate the dispute between
the two countries. The state depart
ment has been informed of the offer and
its acceptance. The eubjects of the ar
bitration will include not only the diffi
culty over the landing of Japanese im
migrants, but also will include other dis
agreements between the two countries,
the most important of which is the Sake
tax, imposed upon a Japanese liquor
largely imported and consumed by the
Japanese in Hawaii.
The acceptance of the offer of arbitra
tration, a brief synopsis of which has
been cabled to the Japanese minister
here and given to the state department,
8tate9 that the Japanese government ac
cepts arbitration in principle, ana is
prepared to enter upon arrangement of
terms for the settlement of pending dis
putes. A formal letter ot acceptance
has been sent to Hawaii and the condi- J
tiona of the arbitration will be contained ,
therein. Those conditions are not
known here. Pending the arrangements
details of all other proceedings looking
to a settlement will be discontinued.
When officials of the state department
were informed of the offer and acceptance
of arbitration the secretary of the Jap
anese legation here was informed that
until the annexation treaty was conclud
ed the United States would not assume
authority in the matter and that the
present dispute must be considered as
between Japan and.Hawaii. The secre
tary in reply said he was glad to learn
such was the position of the United
States, as it would permit Japan sending
two or three warships to Hawaii pend
ing final action on the arbitration treaty.
This interpretation of the situation rath
er surprised the department officials,
who answered that the United States
would consider in a different light an
agreement of arbitration and the send
ing of warships, and intimated that non
inierferance by the United States in one
case could not be construed as passive
acceptance of the latter position. The
Japanese secretary was told, however,
that in the absence of Secretary Sher
man nothing could or would be said of
ficially upon the subject, and any con
versation must be considered as wholly

of the artillerymen who were not killed
beside their guns were forced to retreat
before the onslaught of the fanatics,
leaving their guns behind them.

Albany, Or., July 30. Aa the' south

Southern Pacific reached Springfield last
evening. Miss Jennie Smithton, aged 19,
attempted to alight from a car before
the train slopped. She fell and rolled
under the wheels. Both legs were cut

will recover. Her parents, who reside at
Springfield, were at the depot to meet
her and witnessed the accident.

Promising Dirt Taken From Gill Mine
Reno, Nev., July 30. A carload of
plain dirt was received from the Gill
mine, in Olinghouse canyon, this morn
ing. One of the shippers said that he
would make a wager that a person could
take a shovelful of dirt from any Back in
car and get 100 colors.
Another carload will be shipped next
Wednesday from the Hutchinson dump.
Both carloads will be worked at. the Be

The Battle of Canudos.
New York, July 30. A dispatch to

further details of the fight at Canudos.
From these advices it is evident that the
first report was not exaggerated, and in
fact did not tell the full extent of the
fanatic victory. These latter reports
state that the government troops lost a
large part of their artillery in the battle,
and that the guns, in good order, are

Cubans Raid the Suburbs of the Span
New York, July 30. A dispatch to
the Herald from Havana says :
Havana's outposts have been again at
tacked by a large body of rebels, who
before the Spanish troops could be gath
ered to resist had swept through the
suburbs, carrying all before them.
They need, it is believed, rapid-firing
guns and a large quantity of dynamite.
The attack was made late last night. To
day there is an inclination among the
Spanish officials in Havana to deny the
fact that tbe rebels had evaded tbe forts
and swept into Havana limits. The
facts, however, remain and tbe path left
by the rebels through the suburbs south
east of tbe city may be plainly traced.
At the first sound of firing last night
the Spanish soldiers in the city and sub
urbs sprang to arms. They proceeded
hurriedly to the southeastern part of tbe
city from where the rattle of musketry
followed by the boom of heavy guns or
dynamite could be heard plainly all over
Havana. Then the sound of firing in
creased, and finally after a few hours,
died away, showing that the rebels had
retired. Several wounded Spanish sol
diers were brought to Havana and re
moved to hospitals after the engagement,
and several were killed. The reticence
of Spanish officials prevents any know
ledge of the result of the attack becom
ing general. It is a fact, however, . that
great damage was done by tbe insur
gents on their bold raid and that a con
siderable quantity of dynamite was used.
There was great excitement in Havana
during the rebel attack. Hundreds,
aroused by the heavy firing, poured into
the streets and the word passed along.
"The rebels have attacked the city,"
created almost a panic in some quarters.
There is still much excitement here, due
largely to the refusal of the officials to
give out information.
This attack on Havana was not unex
pected. For weeks past the rebels have
been within eight of the capital and have
practically moved without interference.
Tbe insurgent leaders near Havana are
Brigadier General Castillo, with a large
force at Mariano, nine miles southwest,
and Colonel Nestor Aranguron, of Guan
abacoa, across the bay. General Alex
ander Rodriguez, rebel commander of
Havana province, with a large force, is
near Minar and Colonel Aranguren is at
It is believed the rebel raid was led by
Aranguren, who is noted as one ot the
most daring of the rebel chiefs.
Captain-General Weyler has left Ha
vana for the Matanzas, and the belief
is expressed that the knowledge by the
insurgents of this intention on his part
led to the attack.
It is understood that large bodies of
insurgents have recently ciossed from
Pinar del Rio and Matanzas, and that
the rebels' strength in this province has
assumed formidable proportions. Quin
tin Randeras with 800 men is among
those who have come into the province

THE KAISER AND THE TRAMP.
William Given a Vagabond Some Money
and iood Advice.
An ancedote of the kaiser and the
tramp has just appeared in Berlin pa
pers, says the Pall Mall Gazette. Kaiser
William was, it seems, lately staying
at the Jagdschloss Hubertstock, near
the Angerumnde, and was one day
shooting: in that neighborhood. A
tramp descried him from afar, and, not
knowing- it was the emperor, accosted
him with the usual German request for
unterstutzung" or financial propping up,
and also wished to be directed as to the
road to Angermunde. The kaiser com
plied wiih both requests, conversed
with him at length as to his personal
and professional views of life, and dis
missed him with a wish for a pleasant
end to his day's journey. The pleasant
end was in the police station, for one
of the kaiser's servants, who seemed to
be of the Scotchman's opinion that it
was "an awfu like business for puir
fouk tae lulk at a king," imagined that
the emperor had been insulted and tele
graphed far and wide for the arrest of
the pilgrim, with accompaniment of
bonds, fetters, handcuffs, and so on.
The wanderer was run to earth at An
germunde, when he learned several
things that he did not know before
inter-alia, that he had been speaking
with the kaiser and was guilty of high
treason, anarchism and the like. Need
less to say. he was speedily released by
an impetuous telegram from the em
peror, who ordered that he should be
fed, comforted and have a free ticket to
Cuxhaven, "where he told me he wanted
