' , Barber SIiod ' ' May Build a Pacific Cable. , ' Montreal, Que., August 4. The out .' break of war between Japan and China ' has revived interest in the proposed Pa- cific Ocean cable between Vancouver and Japan. C. R. Hosmer, General Man agerof Telegraphs of the Canadian Pa . ' cific railway, said in an interview to-day "f- that sufficient progress had been made V financially in 1891 for putting through this scheme, had the Japanese govern . ment given it .the assistance that was expected of them. He. 'believes the present-war will extend to other nations in the Far East, and that it will result , in the laying of a Pacific cable either to Japan, China or Australia, as the exist ing cables pass through so many foreign ' countries where serious . complications are likely to arise at any moment. The distance from Vancouver to Japan is 3,600 miles. A cable is estimated to cost ; Jess than $4,000,000. - .-.'.- , , ' - The Fire Still Burning. 1 V Milwaukee, July 31. Governor Peck and party returned this morning from : Phillips. . .The' forest fires are still raging throughout the north central part of the State, and the towns of Fifield, Pren tice, Medford and Chelsea, besides many ' saw-mill settlements and farming com munities, are in .danger of being wiped out, should heavy winds come up. When the Governor passed through Chelsea ' the authorities besought aid for the fam- v. ilies burned out. The Governor said the i unfortunates would be cared for. Fears are entertained for the safety of the town - of Morse on the Soo line. It is stated that half of it has been wiped out, and v that the rest is threatened with destruc tion. The wires on the line are down. ' ' Successful Rain-Making. Yankton, S. D., August 1. Ten days ago' rain-making experiments were begun in this county under the direction of two citizens who visited a Kansas rainmaker, obtained his chemical form ula! and received instructions in its use. One ton of chemicals was consumed and, last night one of the most voluminous rain storms of the summer was ushered in. It extended over an area of twenty miles square in all directions from the - experiment station near this city, and in localities as much as two and a half inches of water fell. . The rain saves late corn and insures a half crop of. hay. V ''.'.".To Establish a Colony. - Vancouver, B. C August 1'. A co operative colony is to be established here at an early date. A large nuinber of persons have formed a club for the pur pose of starting one, and. the govern ment has promised its assistance. It is f proposed to obtain one of the many fertile islands up the coast and send a dozen pioneers', who will build houses and clear the land.: The settlement is to be gradually increased from time to time. The settlers intend to engage in farming and fishing, the island being near the halibut banks. ; Controller's Rank-Note Statement. -Washington, August 3.

TWO CRUISERS ARE CAPTURED The Encounter Means an End Has Been Put to China's Fighting on the Seas ' The Japanese Handled Their Guns, Etc., With Greater Skill. ' ; Shanghai, August 1. News has just reached here, of a desperate battle be tween the fleets of China and Japan in which the Chinese "were defeated and the' Chen Yuen, the largest battleship but one in the Chinese service, was sunk and two other large Chinese vessels, said to be first-class cruisers, captured or de stroyed. The battle was hotly contested, but the Japanese Appeared to have handled their guns, ships' and torpedoes with more skill than the Chinese. The Chinese fleet engaged carried nearly 1,000 men, ana a large number are reported killed or drowned. Later dispatches say that few, if any, of the Chinese en gaged in the battle escaped. Two Ger man officers in command of the Chen Yuen are reported . to have met death with the crew. , The news of the battle was received here by private telegram from Tien-Tsin, If the report is true, of which there is little doubt, it means an end has been put to China's fighting upon the seas. The Chen Yuen must have started from Taku after leaving the Chinese trans ports there. ,-. The two Uhinese cruisers supposed to have been captured or destroyed during the engagement which ended so fatally for the Chen Yuen are supposed to be the Chen Yuen and the Foo Ching. The Chen Yuen was a Drotected cruiser, built at Emswick, England. She had a dis placement of 2,300 tons. 1 Her armament consisted of three 8J-inch Krupp and two six-inch Armstrongs, protected by splinter-proof shields, several eight pounder rapid-firing Hotchkiss guns, six gatlings and four torpedo tubes. The Foo Ching was also an Snglish-built protected cruiser, very much similar to the Chen Yuen. She had a displace ment of 2,500 tons, was built of steel in 1880, and carried ten guns of about the same; caliber as those carried by the Chen Yuen. .'. , " r Tien-Tsin, August 1. A naval . battle was fought yesterday between the Chi nese and Japanese fleets. The Japanese sank the Chinese warship Chen Yuen. Two large cruisers, supposed to be ves sels built for China by Armstrong, were captured 6r destroyed. The Chen Yuen was a battleship of 7,400 tons displace ment, carrying 14-inch and compound armor at the water-line. Her battery included four twelve-inch guns protected by armored breastworks and two small Krubbs, eleven Hotchkiss cannon and tubes for Whitehead torpedoes, two 8M inch and six-inch Krupps and a second ary battery of Hotchkiss revolving can non. The Chen Yuen was built for China at the Stettin works. . She was a sister ship of the Ling Yuen, t and was the most powerful ship in the Chinese Navy with the exception of the Ling Yuen.' .' ' - ' ',..' -v ANOTHER BATTLE REPORTED. . Shanghai, August 1. It is reported to-day that the Japanese forces attacked the China position at Yashan Friday and Saturday last.- The Japanese, it is Baid, were repulsed with heavy loss. The Chinese loss was trivial. . THE RECENT STRIKE. The Investigating Committee to Meet In Chicago. : ' Washington, ' August 1. The Labor Commission appointed ' by President Cleveland to investigate the causes of the recent strike will hold its first meet ing at the postoffice building in Chicago August 15, and will- request railroads, labor organizations and citizens having a personal or patriotic interest in the rights of the question to be inquired into, and who cannot attend the meetings, to present their views and suggestions in writing to the commission prior to the public hearing. The three members of the committee have adopted the follow ing preamble and resolutions : - . - . Whereas, The President of the United States has appointed the undersigned a commission to visit Chicago, ID., and such other places in the United States as may be proper in the judgment of the commission, to the end that it may make full inquiry into the cause of any pend ing disputes or- existing controversies between the Illinois Central Railway Company and the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railway Company and cer tain of the railway employes and hear all persons interested therein who may come before it; and, . v . . Whereas, Section 6 of chapter 1,063 of the- laws of the - United States, passed October 1, 1888, makes it the duty of the said commission to examine into the cauie of said controversies, the condi tions accompanying and the best means of adjusting the same and to report . the result of such examination to the Presi dent and to Congress ; and, . Whereas, The questions involved in such controversies affect all interstate railroads and their employes; and, ; Whereas, It is desirable that the rec ommendations of this commission as to future legislation upon the questions at issue between labor, whether organized or unorganized, and the employers there of should be based upon all facts having any legitimate bearing upon such ques tions and should be the result 6nly of clear' and well-defined public opinion ; therefore, ' '; i . Resolved,. That this commission will meet at the United States postoffice building in the city of Chicago, 111., the 15th day of August, 1894, at 10 a. m., for the purpose of taking testimony in rela tion to said controversies and to hear and consider all facts, suggestions and. arguments as to the causes thereof, the conditions accompanying and the best means of adjusting the same and as to any legislation or measures which ought to be recommended in regard to similar controversies nereatter. That all railways, labor organizations and citizens Saving either a personal or patriotic interest in the right solution of these questions, and who cannot conve niently attend such public hearings as aforesaid, are requested to present their views and suggestions in writing, to the commission at any time prior to the date ot sucn puouc hearing. - That copies of this resolution' be given to the press and be sent to all railways engaged in the transportation of prop erty and passengers, being in two or more States of the United States, and to all labor organizations. . That all communications be addressed to the Chairman of the United States Strike Commission, Washington, i. - Messrs. Kernan and Worthington left the city after the meeting. Both will be engaged in doing preliminary work be fore the investigation actually begins. .'; HOUSE OF COMMONS. Discussion of the Evicted Tenants Bill ' Limited. London, August 3. In the House of Commons to-day Sir William Harcourt, Chancellor of the Ehxcequer, moved a time limit for the discussion of each clause of the evicted tenants bill, with a final closure. of the committee stage August 7. In making this motion Sir William' said the government regarded the bill as urgent and appreciated the necessity that the time allotted for further discussion of the measure should be ample. - He was not enamored of ex ceptional measures of closure, and re sorted to them with sincere regret, but the fact that there were twenty-two pages of amendments to the bill justi fied the summary procedure. Mr. .Bal four said that never in the history of Parliament had there been a proposal like this. , No ; government had ever ventured to suggest after only a two days' debate of a measure in committee that the House be gagged, yet a Minister making such a proposition has thought it sufficient to express regret in a few perfunctory words, giving as the onlv ap- froach to a reason for the proposal the arge number of amendments. So, he said,' because the House showed a desire to discuss the bill the discussion must be stopped. Mr. Balfour warned the House that such procedure would in evitably end in the abasement of the House as a legislative body in the eves of the country. He moved an amend ment of regret that the government should deprive the minority of their just rights and thereby make a fair de bate impossible and bring the whole proceedings into deserved contempt. Mr. John Morley twitted Mr. Balfour with.. having singularly moved closure on the bill constituting the Parnell Com mission. Mr. Chamberlin said that the bill had been supported by both sides of the House ' and only Obstructed, by a small knot of Irish members. A large number of amendments to the evicted tenants bill, he said, were introduced by Irish .members. If these amendments were rejected, the government would be legislating for Ireland against the views of Irish members. If they were ac cepted, the bill would be transformed far beyond Mr. Morley's pledges. Mr. Labouchere asked what was the use of discussing the bill week, after week. It was certain to be rejected by the House of Lords. It would be better to have the soonest possible appeal to the country to settle the question whether the House of Commons was the master of the situation or whether its members were the subservient and humble servants of hereditary laws. Balfour's amendment, protesting against the brevity of time allowed for discussion, was rejected. The Unionist members ot the House of Commons have decided to abstain from further action on ' the evicted ten ants bill and to refrain from moving amendments standing in their name. They will take no part in divisions on the amendments yet to be considered. Many of them are McCarthyite motions. Thus the bill is likely to be virtually dis--posed of at the end of the week.- The opposition may possibly raise a debate on the third reading of the bill, but they will move no amendments. ... . ; . V OFFICIAL, STATEMENT.' V ' ; ' ': Japanese, Government Gives Its Report - ot the Situation. t Yokohama, August 1. The following official statement of the difficulties be tween China and Japan has been issued by the Japanese' government: .Japan and China were approaching 'a settle ment of the difficulties when China sud denly suggested that Japan withdraw her fleet from. Corea and give formal compliance with the Chinese demands by July 20; otherwise the whole Chinese force were to land, and a sea advance upon the part of China would be made. The Japanese regarded this as an ulti matum, but, acting under the advice of the friendly powers, agreed to the pro posals in the principle in an amended form, at the same time declaring that, if the threatened Chinese advance -were made on July 20, it would be regarded as an overt act. ..It is conjectured the Japanese commanders were instructed to be on the watch for "the Chinese war ships and, seeing the latter advancing July 27, opened fire. The Japanese do not'believe the Kow Shung, the Chinese transport sunk by a Japanese cruiser, was Hying the .British nag, but were liKino- the flatr as a ruse. The Japanese indignantly deny the charges of brutal ity brought against the officers and crew which sank the Chinese transport. WAR PROCLAIMED Japan Has Formally Notified the Other Nations. JAPAN'S MINISTER RECALLED Vessels of Other Powers Will Henceforth Carry Contraband Articles of War at Their Own Peril Minister and Con , suls Recalled. . - v - London, August 3. A dispatch just received says Japan made a formal decla ration of war upon China to-day. ' Lord Kimberly, upon receipt of notice from the Japanese Minister that, war had been declared, wired all the British rep resentatives abroad to warn the captains of merchant vessels of the fact in order that they might form their cargoes ac cordingly. Any contraband ware com prised in the cargoes will be handled at the risk of the owners of the vessels. FOR THE WORLD TO 1AKE NOTICE. Tokio, August 3.-r-The Japanese gov ernment has informed a representative of the foreign powers here that a state of war exists between Japan and China, This is regarded as equivalent to a decla ration of war., ; minister and consuls recalled. London, August 3. Private dispatches say that Japan has closed her legation in Peking and recalled her Minister and all her Consuls from China. Shanghai, August 3. 12:30 p. m. In consequence of the declaration of war upon China, proclaimed by Japan yes terday, the Japanese Minister will leave for Tokio to-morrow. - The Japanese nag was- hauled . down from the consulate here to-day. ' '."'." from the land side. , , .' : ' Shanghai, August' 8. A number of heavy guns have been added to the artil lery at Taku harbor in the last three days, and submarines have been laid in expectation of an attack from the Japan ese fleet. Great alarm is felt at Taku, as the people there' believe that any day may bring several Japanese war .ves sels and a bombardment. The steam launches of the Chinese, customs service are scouting along the coast to ascertain whether or not the Japanese are ap proaching. Their officers report 'that several Japanese cruisers have been seen in the Gulf of Pechili. - The ability of the Taku forts to withstand a bombard ment is doubted. The forts were not built to resist the , fire of , modern guns. Six Chinese transports, packed with troops, sailed on Monday from Chee Foo. They were conveyed by three warships. ... . ... ' THjt battle at yashan. : Shanghai, August 3. The Chinese are strongly entrenched 'at YaBhan, and the J apanese are unable to dislodge them, having been repeatedly repulsed . with heavy losses. ' The Chinese losses have been small. Ffteen hundred Japanese are said to have been killed. ' The North China News confirms the report of the ghting at Yashan. It says that the Japanese brought up for the attack every available man, almost denuding Seoul of troops. The successful defense made by the Chinese was directed by European officers. - - , Miitsu Hito, Emperor of Japan. ' , The war between Japan and China over Corea makes the rul ers of these countries of more than usual interest. Mutsu Hito, 1 Emperor of Japan, is about 42 years of age. He succeeded his fa ther at the age of 16 years, and was ' re- ntnrprl trt full nnwpr a if year later.- The Em peror is a gentleman EMPEaoai japa. f mien, edu- . cated in the sciences and arts. He knows the minutest de tails of his kingdom's needs, opens Par liament and delivers his own addresses. Hie court is the center of culture and talent, the men who surround him being men of brilliant minds knowing well how to assist in guiding the government. The .Emperor enjoys life in all its. phases. DECLARATION PRECIPITATED. , The Kow Shung Incident Supposed to 5 , Have Caused It. ' ...-.'. v ' Washington, August 3. -A cablegram announcing the arrival of the United States steamer Monocacy at Nagasaki, Japan, received by Secretary Herbert to day, is the only official news that has come to the government from the repre sentatives of China and Jajban, and the surmise of official dispatches being ob structed purposely amounts to a convic tion. The Monocacy was at Chemulpo, Corea, with the Baltimore, and it is sup posed she ran over to Nagasaki for coal and supplies. It is thought here the ac tion of Japan officially notifying the British government of the existence- of a 'state of war between Japan and China was precipitated by the Kow Shung in cident. . Had such notice preceded the sinking of the ship, Japan would not have, incurred liability to Great Britain and been obliged to apologize. In effect that notice is equivalent to a declaration of war, or at least it imposes the same obligations upon neutral nations. By this stroke Japan doubtless has seriously embarrassed China in her efforts to sup plv herself with warlike equipment in other countries. Just what the effect will be on Chinese treaty ports cannot be foretold now. Japan has taken the ground, that they are practically foreign settlements, and therefore has disclaimed Mill If rs-23H, any intention to interfere with them, re garding them as outside the scene of hostile operations. It is believed, how ever, China will now proceed to close the more important treaty ports, begin ning with Shanghai perhaps, by obstruct ing the entrances. i POSITION, OF, THE POWERS. The British. Government Will Safely " Guard Her Interests. London, August 3. The Earl of Kim- berley, Minister of JForeign Affairs, re ceived ' a dispatch this morning 'from Hugh Fraser, British Minister in Tokio, announcing the declaration of . war, Kimberley was visited this afternoon by the Japanese Minister, ' who personally communicated ' to him a similar an nouncement of the "declaration. The Earl, upon receiving from the envoy official notice of the declared war. de clared that Great Britain would remain neutral in the matter, although the British government would take steps to safely guard British interests in the far SLaat. bo lar as the sinking of the trans port Kow Shung, flying the British flag, is concerned, the envov was informed that Great Britain- awaits the statement of the English captain of that steamer peiore maemg any reply to the apology offered by Japan. The government will hold a Cabinet meeting within the next two days to consider the attitude of Great Britain to the Corean question. Despite the explanation and apology of the Japanese for the Kow Shung affair, the greatest indignation is still felt by shipowners and other persons interested in the Eastern trade. They insist' that the government must press . Japan for ample compensation and for assurances of better faith in the future. The Ad miralty has ordered Vice-Admiral Fre--mantle, who commands the British squadron of the ; Asiatic coast, to ap proach Chinese and Japanese ports, and while observing strict- neutrality, to watch the progress of operation. . .. .. . RESULTING FROM , THE WAR. Marine Insurance to Japanese and Chi nese Ports at War Rates. San Francisco, August 4. War hav ing been declared between China and Japan, the marine insurance. companies which have agencies in this city will not write any more policies for merchandise shipped from San Francisco to Japanese and Chinese ports, unless a special war risk is included. It will make no differ ence whether ,. goods are shipped in American or foreign vessels. The senti ment among underwriters, especially those who represent foreign marine in surance companies, is that merchandise will be safer in British bottoms, and risks on such will probably -be the light est of all. AH the foreign marine in surance agencies in this city are anxiously awaiting instructions from their home offices as -to" the rate of war risk to be charged. Large quantities of merchan dise are shipped from San Francisco to Shanghai by the steamers oi the racinc Mail and the Occidental and Oriental Companies. The merchandise does not go direct, but is transhipped at Yoko hama by a line of Japanese steamers. Merchandise going by that route will be subject to a heavy risk., ; ; t TO IMPROVE RIVERS. Agreement Reached by River and Harbor :r Conferrees., Washington, August 2. Dolph has had a rather hard struggle, but he has pulled out of the conference committee with all' the Oregon appropriations in the river and harbor bill. Practically an agreement to that effect has ' been reached, and the agreement will prob ably be reported to-morrow. The amount for a boat railway at The ualles has been reduced to $100,000, but Dolph says that will be sufficient to acquire the right of way and begin the work. The main thing is to have it started. ' The other appropriations for Oregon remain undis turbedi Washington is also fortunate. Every increase made by the Senate re mains in the- bill, as also does the pro vision made for the Lakes Union and Washington waterway. The Oregon and Washington delegations are feeling very jubilant. Oregon has a $400,000 increase, nearly double the amount in the House bill, with the entire amount for the completion of the work at the mouth of the Columbia. . Dolph says boats will be passing over the dalles of the Uolumbia in four years. To Segregate Coal Fields. - Washington, August , 2. Governor Hughes of Arizona, who is here, states the long-standing friction between the Navajo Indians and the ranchers and stockmen is in a fair way of settlement. His efforts to have the San Carlos coal fields cut off from the White Mountain Indian reservation will, he believes, re sult in the coal fields being segregated and thrown open to the public for settle ment and development. All Arizona Legislatures during the past ten years by joint resolution and all the Governors in their annual reports have urged, the segregation of these coal fields, there be ing no other coal within. 300 miles. . To Change the Boundaries. .,'.- -, Washington, ; August 2. Caminetti has introduced a bill in the House au thoring the Secretary of the Interior to change the boundaries of the Yosemite .National Park when it is shown that lands more suitable for agricultural, mining or other purposes are included in it and are not required for the public interest, or which comprise the territory. located lor mining purposes Deiore the establishment of the park. , PACIFIC ROADS. A Supplementary Statement to the Minority Report. ANOTHER SUGGESTION MADE Mr. Harris, the Kansas Representative, Would Like to Have the Government ' Operate a Transcontinental Line He' Opposes the Rellly Bill. ' . Washington, ' July 31. Harris of Kansas, a member of the House Com mittee on Pacific Railroads,' has sub mitted the following supplementary statement to the minority report against the Reilly bill : , : ' " " I fully concur in the foregoing (Boat- ner's) views of tiie "minority, except so., far as the opinion is expressed that the government should, in the event of fore closure, proceed to Bell or transfer the . property acquired to some other corpora tion or company, as indicated and sug gested in the Pattison report. " The agents of the State for the per formance of a public duty have, as r ule, proven incompetent and dishonest ; incompetent in protecting the rights and Interests of the public, and dishonest in -using the powers entrusted to them wholly for selfish ends and for the pur pose of building up vast private fortunes at the expense of the people. In- the ease of the Pacific railways the object of the original act was stated to be ' to promote the. public interests and wel fare,' and to that end subject to altera tion, amendment or appeal. Hence the subsidies of lands and moneys were placed in the hands of the companies as trustees for the accomplishment of that object. Their breach of. faith is un- . paralleled and undenied, and their sole excuse is that they did only that which other companies did and followed the common custom of railwav builders and managers. 'Why then enter into such.' an entangling alliance and, permit or risk the sacrifice of public duty and , functions to private avarice, greed and bad faith? . . V . . . . " I believe that foreclosure of the gov- ernment lien should at once follow de- fault in payment, in that a' complete transcontinental line should be acquired and operated by the only competent and legitimate powei1 the people through . their government. Such will be the in- nuence oi this action that probably no further changes in the transportation system of the country would be neces- . sary. but that everywhere the public duty and its performance will be recog nized as paramount, and that capital ' honestly invested will be satisfied with a fair and reasonable compensation, . honestly and justly earned.". RUN DOWN AT LAST. A Striker WJU Now Answer to the ..: ( ' Charge of Murder. ' c -. j Sacbambnto, July 31. A special dis- patch from' Woodland this afternoon says a few days before the ditching of the train on the trestle several members of . the union called upon Rev. Father Grace and asked permission to be allowed to go up on the dome of the Roman Catholic -Cathedral in Sacramento for the purpose of making certain observations and giv ing certain signals. Father Grace, know ing the mission of the men to be unlaw ful, refused to give his' consent. Not withstanding this refusal a union man. equipped with a marine glass, was seen on the lofty roof of the cathedral July 11 before .Engineer Ulark took the ill- .. fated train out of the depot. This man, , perched high against the blue sky, was there to see whether the men who were ' to wreck the mail train, carrying the . Pullman cars and twenty United States artillery soldiers had done their hellish work. As the train, the first to attempt the blockade since the strike was de clared, moved out of the depot, this man, three-quarters of a mile away, sig naled the fact to some of his fellow-con-" v spirators stationed where they could, unobserved themselves, observe his mo- tion. His first signal was: i "The train is crossing the Yolo bridge." Then there was a pause as he -watched : through the glass the progress of the train. It was a pause long enough tor trestle No. 2 to be reached.. Then-when , the engine and tender bumped over the , ties and threw a headlong somersault -from the bank into the slough, scalding -and burying poor Clark in the mud and crushing four soldiers to death, this man -on the top of the dome signaled exult- mgly that the bouthern Facihc (Jompany had been thwarted in its attempt to send Pullmans over the road. That is what lawyers for the prosecution say occurred on that gruesome day. From that day until yesterday this man, who knew the , train and all on board were soon to plunge off the trestle, and who held his peace because he approved oi the murder so long as it ditched the hated Pullmans, -was hunted for. He left a trail that was ' followed persistently and determinedly,. ' and yesterday the hand- of the law clutched him by the collar and wrote "murder" against his name. Existence of Trusts Unconstitutional - Washington, July 31. Hutchinson of Texas has introduced a resolution for an amendment to the constitution to give Congress jurisdiction over trusts. The amendment proposed --. is ; as follows: "Trusts and.monopolies dealing in agri cultural products or other articles of prime necessitv shall not exist, in thn United States, and Congress shall have ' x e .1 j l i . power i,u eiiiurcH mis urucie uy appro priate legislation."
