THE PROTEST OF ENGLAND.
How Russia's Infraction of the Treaty
roag;lit it A bo at.
Washington, Dec. 28. The announc
ment of the determination of England
and Japan to protest against the empe
ror of Corea practically yielding the gov
ernment of that country into the hands
of the Russian minister, excites great
interest here, where the story of Rus
sia's invasion of Corea is well known.
A year or more ago Russia and Japan
entered into a treaty of alliance under
which they agreed to assume jointly the
responsibility of preserving the peace
and providing a good government for
Corea. In the division of responsibility
Russia took command of the army, the
police and the direction of foreign af
fairs, Japan having the departments of
education, agriculture and other com
paratively nnimportant branches of the
The collection of revenues, and the
management of finances were left in
charge of an Englishman named Mc
Levy Brown, who held the title of "ad
viser to the finance department and
chief commissioner of customs." It was
his dismissal by the emperor of Corea
which brought forth the English con
sul's protest. It was Mr. Brown's duty
to see to the collection of customs, which
he performed so well there was a pros
pect of Corea's debts being paid.
Early in November, however, to the
surprise of all concerned, there appeared
in Seoul as a guest of the Russian lega
tion, a Mr. Alexieff, whose calling bore
the title in French, "Councillor of State
and Agent of the Ministry of Finance of
the Imperial Russian Government, "and
an inscription in Chinese which read
"Superintendent of the Finances of Co
It is said that the Russian govern
ment compelled the Corean embassador
nt St. Petersburg to contract with Alex
ieff to manage the Corean finances with
out consulting the authorities of Seoul.
The day after the arrival of Alexieff at
Seoul he called on the minister of
finance, exhibited bis contract and an
nounced that he was ready to enter
upon his duties. Mr. Pak explained
that the government was already enjoy
ing the services of Mr. Brown, and that
the Corean embassador at St. Petersburg
bad no authority to interfere with the
finance department. Alexieff respond
ed that the fact that the minister of
finance questioned the , validity of the
contract cast a reflection upon his verac
After a show of resistance by Corea
and repeated threats by the Russian
government, Mr. Brown was dismissed
and Mr. Alexieff installed in his place.
Then followed Brown's appeal to Lon

Hawaii Likely to be Ours.
Washington, Dec. 28. "Affairs in
China and the East generally," said
Senator Cullom, "have put on an entire
ly different complexion upon Hawaii's
prospects of annexation. Since con
gress adjourned for the holidays there
has been a marked change of sentiment
concerning Hawaii, and it would not
surprise me if the impending treaty
should be ratified by the necessary twe
thirds of the senate. " '
"It would be the height of folly to let
such an opportunity slip as Hawaii pre
sents to the United States at such a
a critical time. Here is a most desira
ble piece of property only waiting for a
nod from Uncle Sam to become his own,
without firing a gun or precipitating
"As soon as congress meets we will
get at the treaty, and my imprission is
that a number of senators who have
heretofore been against the ratification
will be found on our side. It has always
been my opinion that we ought to have
Hawaii, and I am confirmed in this be
lief more than ever by the recent course
of events in the Orient.'!
Consumption Positively Cared.
Mr. R. B. Greeve, merchant, of Chil-
howie, Va., certifies that he had con
sumption, was given up to die, sought
all medical treatment that money could
procure, tried all cough remedies he
could hear of, but got no relief ; spent
nights sitting up in a chair; was in
duced to try Dr. King's New Discovery,
and was cured by two bottles. For past
three years has been attending to busi
ness and says Dr. King's New Discovery
is the grandest remedy ever made, as it
has done so much for him and also for
others in his community. Dr. King's
New Discovery is guaranteed for Coughs,
Colds and consumption. It don't fail.
