EARNESTLY DESIRE PEACE.
Japanese Shocked at Victory Von
Willi Such Shedding of IMood,
Toklo, Oct. 10. Thcru is a strong
anpeal lor peace In thu appalling trag
edy which Is now under enactment In
Manchuria, lloth armies have fought
ferociously for a week, and desperate
llRhtlng still continues. It Is probable
that the death loll will ho larRely in
ci eased Wore tho final shot Is fired.
The preliminary leports Indicate that
about tW. 000 nen on both sides have
been either killed or wounded, the
larRcr pot lion of them lieing Russians,
since tho aimien of tbe two itclllRerentr
closed in combat.
Kven tliu Japanese, to whom the
great victory Is ot paramount Import
ance, seem to be shocked by thonlauRht
er of their enemies. The Jupanero peo
ple aro receiving thu nows from the
tluld of battle calmly, and there can be
heard no shouts in thu streets pro
claiming tliu victory of their nation.
Few llagn aio displayed. Probablj
later on there will lie a procession with
thu consequent Jollification, but there
aro heard many expressions ot opinion
that no demonstration of any kind
cou'd 1ms bold. A prominent Japanese
raid to tbe Associated Press correspon
"We have won a sweeping and a do
cislvo victory which may prove to bo
the salvation of our country's exist
ence, but wo regret both our own losses
and thu terrible slaughter which oui
forces bavo inflicted on tbe enemy.
Wo regret still mora tbo necessity
which forced us to engage In this war."

Washington, Oct. 18. Tho Interior
dupfirtmcnt, acting under n sticniul act
passed at tho last session, has complet
ol an Investigation of thu cases of Hhcr
mnn county settlers who hate been din-pofsoist-d
of la. uls lying within the
limits of tbo grant to Thu Dalits Mili
tary Wagon Road company, In Eastern
Oregon. Tliu report of tho findings Is
confidential, and will bo submitted to
congress early in December.
The evidence collected will be suffi
cient o enable congress to take final
action for the relief of I Ik-bo settlers.
It will show the terms on wheh tbo
Eastern Oregon Land company, the
successor to The Dalles Military Wagon
Road company, is willing to relinquish
its titlo to the disputed lands, and al
low then to revert to the settlers. It
will alto show tbo state- of improve
ments which tho cottiers matlo on these
lands while temporarily In possession.
Congrcsn mint decide whether an ap
propriation shall be matlo to buy from
tbe company its title to tbo o lands, in
order to restore them to tl o sett lei s,
or whether It is better to reimburse tho
settlern for the losses they sustained
by reason of bting dispossessed.
The Und company, It is said, is in
clined to deal fairly with the govern
ment in this matter, and will waive ita
title to these lands provided the govern
ment pave; Its price.
Many years bavo elapsed since these
diiputcd lauds were erentually awarded
to the laud company, and in that tlino
a nutnler of original settlers have dis
appeared. These few cases cannot bo
reported upon. All the facts obtaina
ble have tx-en collected, ami congress
will lx? able to compensate settlers who
sustained losses thiough no fault of
their own, but rather through a faulty
decision of the land office.
COLORADO TRAINS COLLIDE.
One Nan Is Dead and Piflcen Oth
ers Injured, Two Dadly.
Pneblo, Oct. 18. As a result of a
bead on collision today between tbe
east bound California limited passenger
train No. 0 and a west bound freight
train on the Denver & Rio Grande rail
road a mile and a half west of Portland
this forenoon, one man, J. E. Duey,
was so badly hurt that be tiled tonight
and 16 others received injuries two of
them perhaps f.itally.
The accident was due to the failure
of tho freight to take the siding at
Portland nnd allow the passenger train,
which wan running on schedule timo
and hail the right of way, to pass.
Both locomotives were completely
wrecked, the baggago and express cars
were telescoed and piled up in a heap,
the forwuru end of tbe day coach wan
smashed and fivo freight carp loaded
with merchandise were demolished.
The Pullman cars were not damaged.
Tho passenger train was running
about 36 miles, and tho froight 20
miles an hour, when the collision oc
curred. Great confusion followed tho
collision, and exaggerated reports le
gardini: the disaster were circulated.
The injured were taken on relief
traiii" to hopitals at Pueblo and fc'alida.
