Canada Decides to Dispose of
Thoie Properties Not Purchased Will
He Thrown Open tor
After List Is Published.
Seattle, Oct. 11.—Advices from
Da wson, dated September 25, state
that the sale of the crown claims in the
Klondike country was to begin Octo
ber 2 and last for several weeks, and
to begin aagin November 2. The gold
commissioner of the district estimates
the number of claims to be sold at be
tween 5,0U0 an<l 10,000. Men were
at work all the latter part of Septem
ber ascertaining the exact number.
To do this the titles of all the claims
in the district, about 20,000, had to be
looked up. The claims are nearly all
creeks and old timers at Dawson be
lieve that many of them are rich.
All the claims that the public will
not purchase will be thrown open for
relocation 80 days after the list is pub
lished. No one knows much about the
claims, as to whether they are rich or
uot, but it is believed that some have
thousands, and perhaps millions, hid
The News in Dawson.
Victoria, B. C., Oct. 11.—News that
the Dominion government has decided
to offer for sale all government claims
in the Klondike, has been leceived
with much joy in Dawson, as it means
the development of some of the best
property in the Yukon valley. The
claims to be offered included all the al
ternate claims that have reverted to
the crown from various causes. It is
estimated that there are between 8,000
and 10,000 such claims in the Klon

Washington, Oct. 12.—Accompany
ing the report of Major-General Brooke,
commander of the department of the
east, to the war department, was a re
port by Major Story, Seventh artillery
inspector. Major Story states that
the personnel of the artillery is mani
festly inadequate to serve the arma
ment already mounted, and he believes
there is such general recognition of this
fact that there will be an increase in
artillery forces at the coming session oi
"It should be remarked in this con

the modern coast armament in this
military department is estimated at
15,010 men. On the 13th of last JunC
the enlisted strength of the heavy bat

only 4,983 men, and of these quite a
number of artillery soldiers are requir

even the minimum number of officers
and men required by the coast artillery
regulations for the service of modern
armament fire, control and direction.’’
Major Story comments upon the ar
tillery reorganization bill now pending
in congress, and says it is a serious de
fect of the measure that it does not
supply sufficient officers for staff ad-
"The number of officers now absent
from their batteries,” he says, "is
probably in excess of 40 per cent, and
there is no prospect in the near future
of improvement in this respect. If the
bill passes in its present form this un
fortunate condition will be aggravated,
since officers must be withdrawn from
the batteries for staff administration.
It is, therefore, earnestly recommended
that the artillery be put upon the same
basis as infantry or cavalry in provid
ing officers for staff work.”

Hazleton, Pa., Oct. 12.—A special
policeman was killed, another was
wounded in the head, a striker was

had four ribs broken.
The Oneida colliery had been in
operation since the inauguration of the
strike. The union men at Oneida and
Sheppton decided early this morning
to close the mine. They gathered in
groups on the streets as early as 3
o’clock. As the nonunion men went
to work they were asked by the strikers
to remain at home. Some turned back,
others did not. Those who went to
the colliery were stoned. Van Blar

More High Chinewe Officials Marked fox
Washington, Oct. 11.—The cabinet
meeting today, which occupied about
two and a half hours, was devoted al
most exclusively to a discussion of the
Chinese situation. Special considera
tion was given to the French note, and
it is understood that a more or less de
finite conclusion was reached as to the
nature of this government’s reply, but
it has not yet been put in diplomatic
form. Its purport will not be made
public for the present.
It developed today that Mr. Conger,
in compliance with a suggestion from
Secretary Hay, had submitted to the
state department a list of 10 or 12
names of Chinese officials who were
prominent in the Boxer movement
aginst the foreigners and in a great
measure were responsible for the as
saults upon the legations in Pekin.
These officials, Mr. Conger believes,
should be included with Prince Tuan
and others in any punishments which
are to be inflicted upon those who took
a prominent partin the Pekin outrages.
It is not unlikey that the position of
this government in regard to the pun
ishment of these officials will be stated
in reply to the French note.
Actor Instantly Killed.
Huntington, W. Va., Oct. 9. — W. J.
McCauley, of Philadelphia, an actol

Newman opened fire, killing McCauley
instantly. Newman escaped to Ohio.

Yokohama, Oct. 12.—The tone ol

partakes of the general bewilderment
arising from the muddle in China, in
dicates quite plainly that there is a
decided tendency toward joining hands
with Russia, should this empire’s nat
ural allies. Great Britain and America,
turn the cold shoulder to her. At the
same time it is perfectly well known
here that Russia's hopes are centering
in an ultimate alliance with Japan—
and it may be that the latter, if the
Western friends forsake her, will turn
to her semi-Asiaic neighbor as the only
resource for the settlement of the East
ern problem. That it will be a dis
agreeable and unwelcome recourse goes
without saying. The result of the
Chinese campaign and the facilities for
comparison between the soldiers of the
different nationalities, which it hai
afforded, has been to awaken a pro
found contempt for Russian soldiery
on the part of the Japanese.

London, Oct. 11.—The Times pub

Washington, Oct. 13.—The reply of
the state dpeartment to the French
note, relative to the basis of Chinese
negotiations, was made public today.
It reads as follows:
"The secretary of state to the French
charge d’Affairs. Sent to Mr. This-
haut, October 12, 1900. Memoran
"The government of the United
States agrees with that of France in
recognizing as the object to be obtain
ed from the government of China ap
propriate reparation for the past and
substantial guarantees for the future.
“The president is glad to perceive in
the basis of negotiations put forward
in the memorandum of October 4 the
spirit that has animated the declara
tions heretofore made by all the poi<
ers interested and would be pleased to
see the negotiations begun immediately
upon the usual verification of creden
"It may be convenient to enumerate
the clauses of the mem ora nd urn and
to add some observations dictated by
the attitude of the United States in the
“First—The punishment of the
guilty parties who may be designated
by the representatives of the powers at
Pekin. The Chinese government has
already indicated its intention to pun
ish a number of those responsible for
the recent disorders. The representa
tives of the powers at Pekin may sug
gest additions to that list when nego
tiations are entered.
"Second—The continuance of the in
terdiction against the importation of
arms. It is not understood that this
interdiction is to be permanent and the
duration of it and the details of its reg
ulation seem a proper subject of dis
cussion by the negotiators.
"Third—Equitable indemnities for
the governments, corporations and pri
vate individuals. This is an object
desired by all the powers. The Rus
sian government has suggested that in
case of protracted divergence of views
this matter might be commended to
the consideration of the international
court of arbitration of The Hague. The
president thinks this suggestion worthy
the attention of the powers.
“Fourth—The organization in Pekin
of a permanent guard for the legations.
The government of the United States
is unable to make any permanent en
gagement of this nature without the
authorization of the legislative branch,
but in the present emergency we have
stationed in Pekin an adequate lega

at Taku. The president reserves the
expression of his opinion as to this
measure pending the receipt of further
information in regard to the situation
"Sixth—The military occupation of
two or three points on the road from
Tien Tsin to Pekin. The same obser
vation which has been made in refer
ence to No. 4 applies also to this proi>o-
sition. The president is unable to
commit the Suited States to a perma
nent participation in such occupation,
but he thinks it desirable that the flow
ers shall obtain from the Chinese gov
ernment the assurance of their right to
guard their legation in Pekin and to
have the means of unrestricted access
to them whenever required.
"The president believes that the gov
ernment of France and the other pow
ers will see in the reservations we have
here made no obstacle to the initiation
of negotiations on the lines suggested
and he hopes it will be fourni practica
ble to begin such negotiations at an
"Department of State, Washington,
October 12, 1900."
The American answer to the French
□ote has given a satisfactory turn to
the Chinese negotiations and were it
not for the reports of military activity
in China on the part of some of the
powers the outlook would be excellent
for a speedy opening ol the long de
ferred peace negotiations. In commu
nicating the memorandum to M. Thie-
baut, Secretary Hay added his personal
congratulations on the course of the
French government, which he looks
upon as the initiation of a satisfactory
solution of thé Chinese problem.

Colorado Springs, Col., Oct. 18.—
Louis R. Ehrich, a member of the Na
tional executive committee of the An
ti-Imperialist League, today received
a telegram from Sixto Lopez, iu Bos
ton, one of the foremost Filipinos and
a man who stands near Aguinaldo,
denying emphatically the authenticity
of the proclamation purporting to have
been issued by Aguinaldo in January,
1899, in which the Philippine leader
instructed his followers to occupy the
houee tops along the line which the
American soldiers should follow in en
tering Manila, and urging them to
pour oil and boiling water on the sol
diers. The alleged instructions further
incited the Filipinos to use speais,
which would leave the head of the
weapon in the body of the victim when
the shaft was withdrawn, and urged
other and varied foims of torture of
the American soldiers. Lopez’s tele
gram is addressed to Mr. Ehrich and
"Boston, Mass., Oct. 12.—The proc
lamation to which you refer is a clum

doubt, of the Spaniards or the monks,
who try to create ill feeling between
the Americans and the Filipinos to the
discredit of tne latter. No such dis
graceful or diabolical proclaamtion
was ever issued by Aguinaldo.”
Sixto Lopez's telegram was called
