"Simonosaki, "March 21. Viceroy Li
Hung Chang and suite arrived here this
morning to negotiate for peace between
China and Japan. Envoys from the
Japanese foreign office immediately

nese viceroy. Later Li Hung Chang,
accompanied by . John W. Foster,
American adviser for China, visited the

at the! capital - , 1
Washington, March 21. Li Hung
Chang's arrival in Japan is regarded in
official circles as one of the most signifi
cant, events of recent days. , It is the
first time in his life that the venerable
statesman of China has set foot outside
of Chinese soil. At his advanced age he
. 'now journeys to China's traditional foe
to oner enormous concessions as a means
of securing peace. It can be stated
positively and authoritatively that the
terms of peace are already understood
and all that remains to be done is to
arrange details within certain specified
limits. The general terms have been
brought about by the efforts of United
States Minister Denby in China and
Dun in Tokio. It was even feared at a
late date that Li's mission might fall
through, because of the vagueness of his
authority to treat for the cession of territory.-
This was arranged, however,
through the activity of the United States
ministers, who showed that unless this
was obviated the mission would other
wise prove futile.
The general terms of Li Hung Chang's
' authority are to cede territory, pay a
cash indemnity, grant the independence
of Corea and arrange a new treaty re
lation with Japan, by which Japanese
extra-territorial jurisdiction in China
-will be maintained. The exact amount
of ' the cash indemnity is not fixed, nor
! is the kind of metal it is to be paid in
agreed upon. These and the boundaries
of the ceded territory are yet to be ar
ranged. So far as the arrangement has
' advanced Prince Li's . mission is ex
pected to be consummated within a few
days, unless some unexpected hitch
occurs. Count Ito, one of the two
"Japanese envoys, is a close, personal
friend of Li Hung Chang, the" two hav
ing settled the Corean trouble in 1885.
Ss great is the confidence of the Japan
ese in Li's ability to Bee that China
carries out an - agreement, that his
promise of a settlement will probably
pave the way to a speedy cessation of
the war. The reports that Russia will
intervene to stop the agreement are
known to be misleading, from positive
information received here. The authorities-believe
there will be no trouble
caused by Russia. The same is be
lieved to be true as to France, although
not with the same certainty.
Demand's Satisfaction From' Nicaragua
for the Expulsion of Hatch.
London, March. 21. Lord Kimberly,
secretary of state for foreign affairs, to
day personally handed to the Nicaraguan
' minister at the foreign office the ulti
matum of the British government de
manding reparation for the expulsion
Jrom Bluefields of Mr. Hatch, the Brit
ish consular agent. A copy of the
document was cabled to the British
minister, resident in Nicaragua. Lord
Kimberly emphatically demands ade
quate satisfaction from Nicaragua. In
official circles the belief is general that
the matter will be amicably settled and
, that no demonstration by a British
squadroy will be necessary to enforce
the demands of Great Britain.

Nearly Four Thousand Prisoners Have
Been Registered There.
Salem, March 21. The total number
of prisoners received at' the Oregon
state penitentiary since its opening is
now nearing the 4,000 mark. Since In
dian Charley, the, first human being
that ever donned stripes in the name of
Oregoni ' there have registered 3,394,
John Gay, of, Eugene, being No. 8,395.
The number now in prison- is 359, of
which two are women. There is not
work enough to keep the convicts em
ployed half the time. The stove foundry
is run three days of each week Mon
days, Wednesdays and Fridays em
ploying on these days 165 men. The
aim is to manufacture stoves only for
the demand. The capacity of the plant
would furnish work for 225 men every.
day of the week. There are thirty-two
trusties, who are allowed to work on the
farm and a few inside men find employ
ment gardening within the walls. The
remainder, except the few used in the
kitchen, are kept in their cells, except
about two hours each day when they
are given what is known as the "bull
pen drill." This is absolutely necessary
lor the health of those who are afforded
no other means of exercise. The aver
sion, of doing the bidding of others is
very noticeable, even among convicts.
Many of them, if left to their own pleas
ure, will spend half and some the entire
day walking in the. yard between the
shops and the main building, but when
called on to fall in line and march for
exercise they tire and want rest before
an hour has passed. The oldest inhabi
tant of tne prison is A. K. stoughton, in
his 89th year, who was committed j for
life from Columbia county in 1892. Al
bert Hovt has served the longest period
of any one now in prison, having been
committed in August, 1881. Hoyt's
crime was rape, for which he was given
twenty years. .

THE FAIR MILLIONS
i A Startling Sensation in - the
ANOTHER WILL INTRODUCED
It Was Left With a Young Lady Teacher
In the Publlo Schools, and Warm
Friend of the Senator's, and Was
Written In Her Presence.
San Francisco, March 20. The con
tention in the courts over the millions
left by James G. Fair developed another
sensation this morning. When the
case was 'called before Superior Judge
Slack a great stir was caused by the
introduction of what purports to be a
later holographic will written in lead
pencil on two sheets of legaj cap paper.
It was brought into court securely
framed between two plates of glass by
Reuben Lloyd, who has been retained
in the case by Mrs. Oelrichs and Vir
ginia it air, daughters of the deceased
This alleged will divides the estate
almost equally between the two daugh
ters and Charlie Fair. It bequeaths a
few thousand dollars to certain orphan
asylums, &nd makes no provisions for
Buch a trust as the estate is left in con
trol of under the will previously filed.
Messrs. Angus and Urothers are two
of the four executors named in the pre
viously niea win. iteierring to this
alleged will, Attorney Lloyd informed
the court that the document, according
to its date, was executed three days
later than the will previously filed. He
said he would prove that the existence
of this will had been known to several
persons, and that it had finally been
found in the possession ot a very es
timable old lady, whose name Llovd did
not divulge, Lloyd said the old lady had
not produced it because she had read
of the other will being offered for pro
bate, and had supposed that it was a
later document than the one she held.
The fact that this new alleged will has
been presented in court by Attorney
Lloyd would indicate that Charlie Fair
and his sisters have joined forces to con
test the will oi their lather.
. The attorneys who represent the exe
cutors under the will previously filed,
and of which the original copy was
stolen, intimated very strorgly that
they believed tins latest alleged win to
be a forgery. The case was finally con
tinued to April 2. ' ...
The alleged win produced to-dav be
queaths to various brothers and sisters
of deceased and their children about the
same amounts as was left to them
under the will previously filed. Under
the first will the families of . these
brothers And sisters would acquire a
large proportion of the estate at the
death of Fair's .children, Charles. Vir
ginia and Mrs. Oelrichs, but under the
will filed to-day the brothers and sisters
and their families would receive only
the amount of cash stated in tne will
and the balance of the $40,000,000 estate
could be distributed at once among the
three children of the deceased.
The special bequests to relatives and
charitable institutions are :,

Vb.it and Virginia fair, share and share
alike, and their children forever.
Should any child die without issue, said
child's share is to go to the surviving
children, Bbare and share alike. The
will appoints James L. Angus, Thomas
Crothers and Dr. Livingstone executors,
THE KEEPEB OP THE WILL. '' '
San Fkancisco, March 20. It now
turns out that the new will was left in
charge of Mrs. Nettie L. Craven, a prin
cipal in the public schools, and who was
a great friend of Senator Fair. The will
was written in the house of Mrs. Has-
kins, with whom Mrs. Craven lived, and
in the presence of both witnesses; It
came about in this way: Senator Fair
had gone to visit Mrs. Craven, and their
conversation turned, to wills, and Fair
said that his lawyers did not seem to
get his will just as he would like it, and
made several other remarks, which led
Mrs. Craven to propose that he maketi
new will then and there, and have her
as witness, and that he make a pro
vision in the will for a fund for the sup
port of school teachers who had taught
for twenty-five years or more. To all
this the senator agreed, and then sat
down and wrote the paper which was
presented to the court to-day. The
reason assigned for keeping the new will
so long in the background is that the
custodian did not look at the date of the
will when Fair died, and when the other
will was made public she thought it was
one of later date.

IS STILL A MYSTERY.
Identity of the Spanish Cruiser, Which
Fired on the Allianca.
Washington, March 21. Nothing is
known here of the reported action of the
Spanish ships Infanta Isabella or Ar-
cedo firing on American vessels. There
is good ground, however, for believing
that the ship sailing from Savannah
with Cuban arms aboard will furnish an
actual case of detention if she is over
hauled. Careful investigation is pro
ceeding as to the cargo shipped by the
Allianca at Colon,' allegations that arms
were taken aboard under cover of dark'
ness having been made. Communica'
tions have been received in Washington
from Cuba that the Conde de Venadito
was the Spanish warship firing on the
Allianca. These advices said that the
latter ship was flying a British flag.
There is further news as to the report
by Secretary Gresham of a reply from
Spain to his demand, but there is reason
to believe the published reports have
failed to state some important reserva
tions by Spain.' One part of Spain's
answer may consist in calling attention
to a charge that in November last a
number of Spanish Cubans were fishing
- ..... w
in the Gulf of Mexico, when they were
tired upon by a United states revenue
cutter, first with cannon and later with
small arms. The firing, it is said, 00
curred twelve miles from land. The
Spaniards were carried to New Orleans,
where, it is said the United States court
for the Southern district of Louisiana
released them. Spain has not thus far
made a protest, but may do so, now that
the United States has protested against
the firing on the Allianca.
As far as can be learned the state de
partment has not yet heard from either
United States Minister Taylor or from
Consul-General ' Williams at Havana
upon the question of the identity of the
cruiser which fired upon the Allianca.
As the commander of the Conde de Ven
adito reported the steamer upon which
he fired was flying the British flag, there
is a possibility that his story refers to
another incident,' which may result in
bringing Great Britain to the defense of
her ensign, for the Spanish cruiser, ac
cording to the position takerr by Secre
tary Gresham, was bound to accept the
colors displayed in answer to the signals
establishing the nationality of the ves
sels. It begins to appear that our gov
ernment is not disposed to be unduly
exacting in the matter of a speedy re
sponse from the Spanish government,
inasmuch as the entire Spanish cabinet
has resigned. ..
THE EDICT SUSPENDED.
Catholic Knights of Pythias to Make
Fall, River, Mass., . March 20. At
the instance of H. A. Dabugue, Dr. L.
P. Degrampre and Dr. P. Ecollett, of
this city, and Judge Chouquette, of
Providence, Monsignore Satolli, the
papal . ablegate, has issued a decree
temporarily suspending the edict of
Pope Leo, relating to Catholic member
ship 'in .the Knights of Pythias. The
gentlemen returned from- a visit to
Washington to-day, whether they had
been sent by Lafayette lodge of this city
to ask a hearing on the matter. ' They
represented that one lodge of Pytbians
in this city .consisted of 250 French
Canadians, and one lodge in Providence
included 160. They said so far as they
were able to observe, they could see no
conflict between Pythianism and Catho
lic doctrines, and were very solicitous
for a suspension of the edict, so that
they might perform their Easter duty.
His grace seemed much surprised at the
facts presented, and was evidently much
impressed with the manner of the men.
He announced that he would suspend
the edict temporarily, and would issue a
formal decree to that effect in a few
days. He promised to bring the matter
to the attention ot the Vatican at the
earliest possible moment, but would
hold out no hopes that his action would
be endorsed as permanent policy to be
followed. -, ,

TROUBLES IN CUBA
Affairs Are Continually Grow
OPPOSITION IS CRYSTALIZING
Advices by Steamer Say There Are
Now Fully Six Thousand Insurgents
Under Arms Rabl and Masso Confi
dent of Taking Santiago.
Key West, Fla., March 19. The first
clear and trustworthy statement of the
condition of affairs in the eastern end
of Cuba is brought by a passenger on
the steamer Mascotte. He said:
"I " have traveled throughout the
mountainous , district constantly since
the trouble began, and matters are now
in a much worse condition than at the
beginning. The fighting was started in
a "desultory ahd scattered Way, but the
forces gradually became crystalized, and
there are now fully 6,000 insurgents
under arms. They are in a dozen or
more detachments, but are giving the
government no end of trouble. In many
cases the Spanish troops have been
beaten back with heavy loss. The most
reproachable event of the war so far is
the pillaging and burning. The insur
gents have gained confidence since the
beginning of the trouble, and matters in
the eastern district are in almost as bad
condition as during the war of 1868.
New leaders are springing up, and by
force of their intellect and ability they
nave induced the insurgents not to hold
off longer for the arrivalof leaders. The
general opinion in Santiago is that if
the insurgents can hold out until sum
mer the yellow fever will help them
greatly. It is said that both Rabi and
Masso are confident of taking Santiago
before October. The Spanish troops are
guarding every road, and nobody is al
lowed to pass without giving the strict
est account of himself. It is as much as
a man's life is worth in Santiago to talk
in favor of the Cubans or to tell the
truth. Several persons have been shot
on account of this. Instances where
the Spaniards were defeated have been
published as government victories. Four
Spanish cruisers were in the harbor of
Santiago one week ago, now there are
but two guarding the eastern coast, and
one on the southern." '
vThe passenger also said the revolt
would kill business in Cuba for two
years. Money is already scarce, . and
prices are high. . A panic ..is feared. It
seems to be the general impression
among the Spaniards that the United
States feels bitterly toward the Spanish
government, and would like nothing
better than an excuse to seize the isl
and, hence their hatred of the Ameri
cans. STOLE THE WHISKY.
Thousands of Gallons Taken by Means
of a Syphon.
Colombia, S. C, March 20. In 1892
Henry Bieman, of Walhalla, S. C, sold
to W. C. Tatum four government distil
leries and bonded warehouses, situated
at distances ot half a mile apart. Tatum
at once closed the distilleries, and be
tween 8,000 and 10,000 gallons of corn
whisky in bond were , locked in the
warehouses under the government seal.
The night of September 5, two days be
fore the expiration of the bonded period,
three of the distilleries were burned.
Only seventy gallons were stored in the
fourth. Deputies Vanderford and King
were detailed to investigate the fires.
They failed to find at the sites of the
burned warehouses any of the signs
which burning whisky would leave.
After collecting evidence ' sufficient to
implicate severel persons, full confes
sions were obtained, showing that soon
after the purchase by Tatum one of the
warehouses was secretly opened. One
end of a hose was inserted in a barrel of
whisky, and the other was placed in a
barrel at the foot of a hill forty yards
distant. This syphon process was re
peated nightly, until the entire stock of
whisky in the four warehouses had been
removed. The empty barrels were tilled
with water, and the staples, which had
been removed ' from the doors, were
skillfully replaced. ' The government
expects to hold Tatum's bondsmen re
sponsible. John Farmer, Asbury Hyde,
Tony Watkins, William Whitman and
John Rowland have been arrested and
held for trial.

THE POSTAL EMPLOYES.
Combination Formed to Overturn Cer
- tain Regulations.
Washington, March 20. The post
office department has information of the
formation of a powerful combination of
postal employes, designed to bring pres
sure upon congress to overturn certain
regulations and rules of the department.
The employes have been encouraged by
success in attaching to the lastpostoffice
appropriation bill an amendment which
suspended an order of the department.
This order was issued last June and
directed that before May 1,, 1895,' all
railway mail employes should remove to
some point along, the line of route on
which they were .employed. This was
unsatisfactory to most of the clerks, and
they obtained legislation overruling the
order. . The reason for issuing the order
is explained at the department as neces
sary because at the time the order was
issued there were about 1,300 railway
mail employes in the service who did
not live on the lines where they worked.
When there was an accident or anything
else that requires emergency men, those
who were on leave and away from the
line where they worked escaped the ex
tra duty, and it fell upon those living on
the route. Of the 1,300 who were living
oft the lines where they worked, about
300 have notified the department they
have or will remove their homes to the
point requested. Probably all of them
will so remove, notwithstanding the leg
islation overruling the order. The de
partment is now informed that since
the failure of legislation in the last con
gress increasing the pav of emploves' a
combination has been formed to pass
this legislation and also to overturn the
rules of the department which are un
satisfactory to them. A high offiicial of
the department said to-day :
"This combination includes some
thousands of employes in thenrailway
mail service, in the letter-carriers' ser-.
vice and in postoffices. They are all in
the classified service and protected from
removal. The effect of this combination'
would be to create a sentiment against
the civil service law, which protects :
these employes." , . . .
The Marshfield Man Had a Policy Beady
In Case of Accident. - -
SaN Francisco, March 19. Gustaf -
Broman appeared in Judge Joachim's
court yesterday in answer to a charge of
perjury preferred against him by Mrs.
Constance Roy. The case was continued
till to-morrow. The detectives were cor
rect in their suspicion - that - Broman -would
have some insurance policy on
his life before he gave out that he would
attempt the foolhardy trip from Coos
bay to this city in a . twelve-foot boat.
The detectives' idea was that if on the
trip the boat would be found on some
beach bottom up, Broman's friends
would claim the insurance on the ground
that he had been drowned, and it would
have ultimately found its way into Bro
man's pockets. Yesterday an agent of
the United States Accident Insurance
Association called at police headquarters
inquiring about Broman'. He said that
Broman in August last had taken out
what is known as a $5,000 and $10,000
accident policy with his company. He
"We have the power to cancel a policy
at any time, and we will at once give
croman notification of the fact that his
policy is canceled." ,
QUIET AT NEW ORLEANS. ,
Cotton Arriving Freely and Men Busy
on the Levees.
New Orleans, March 20. A gang of
negro laborers, who crossed the river
this morning to unload the steamer
Etolia, of Elder, Dempster & Company,
were met on their arrival by a number
of white men and told that they would
not be allowed to work, and commanded
them to return to this side of the river
at once. Later a company from the
Screwmen's Association, of JefferBon,
came over and applied for work on the
steamer. After a brief conference it
was agreed that the work on the Etolia
should be divided, the Jefferson men
taking one-half and the negroes from
this city the other. No further trouble
is anticipated at that point.
The whole river front presented a
more decidedly lively appearance this
afternoon than at any time for the past
week. (Jotton is arriving freely, and
the men are busy at work loading ships,

California Will Manufacture and Dls-

J3an Francisco, March 19. California
is the first state in the Union to manu
facture anti-toxine for free distribution.
In New York the now famous cure for
diphtheria is teing prepared, but it is
made at the expense of the city. The
state board of health has arranged that
the remedy shall be prepared by the
recently established veterinary depart
ment of the University of California.
The appropriation of $6,000 must last
for two years. As some time is required
for the preparation of anti-toxine a
temporary supply has been ordered from
the East for immediate necessities. It
will be distributed among the members
of the state board of health to be used
