Grim Romance of China
Brought Out by Fall of Peking
The Internal affairs of the Chinese, ager, and Informed the latter of every-
Court, which have been practically un-j
known to tho outer world, more espc-
dally since the "coup d'tat" of 1891,
are gradually Altering out owing ta
the occupation of the Peking Palace
by the allies. We cull the following
story from a Japanese Journal, which
gathered It from one of the eunuchs
who was In attendance on tho Emperor
over twenty years.
Since the "coup" of 1898 the Emperor
had been confined In a building on a
little Island called Ylng-tat, surround
ed by a lotus lake, and connected wttn
the shore with a drawbridge. The
Emperor was watched by guards and
attended by a few male attendants.
Food was supplied from outside, but
sometimes Ills Majesty did not touch
his meal at all. Every morning the
Emperor was required to pay his res
pects to tho Empress-Dowager, going
to her chamber, but he was never al
lowed to Interfere In the least with
political affairs. At first he was 111,
but since last year ho has Improved In
health. Even prior to his confinement ,

tho Empress, who Is n nleco of the, with tho Empress-Dowager. The Em-Empress-Dowager,
had not been as peror often urged his aunt to negotiate
they should be.

ugly, is not particularly prepossessing leaving Peking in a drizzling rain was

Independent Luau Biggest Navy Gun
At theDrill Shed
One of tho biggest limns ever seen In
Honolulu was given by the ladles of the
Independent Homo Rule party In the
drill shed yesterday afternoon and
eentng. Men and women wcro at
work throughout the day doing the
cooking and fitting up tho hall In trim
luau style. Three long tables, cnpablo
of seating over a hundred people each
were arranged at equal intervals along
the length of the hall so that people en
tering could go directly to their seals
without trouble. The walls wero dec
orated with festoons of ferns, made
and other greens. The company rooms
and the stage were set apart for the
serving of food.
Tho doorB wero opened at G o'clock
and from that time up to nearly S
o'clock, there was a steady stream of
natives pouring Into the placo, waiting
for seats. At least four people could
be seen standing behind each chair and
some of these went away hungry, for
there wero those of the nntlves unkind
enough to remain seated even after
they had satisfied the Inner man, Th.y
were evidently waiting for a rcnownl
of their appetite In order that they
might bo enabled to carry away more
of tho good things set beforo them.
Never was a more orderly crowd seen
at a luau. Nothing but soda water wai
served and there was not a drop "on
the side" for the more prominent.
Thero was no fighting and tho whole
feast passed off In a most creditable
manner. Good natured chaff and talk
about the recent victory of tho Inde
pendent party, occupied the minds of
the hundreds present.
Shortly beforo 8 o'clock the feast
was declared at an end ami then came
the speech making. Robert Wilcox was
received with cheers anil his words lis
tened to with rapt attention. The
speech making was short and soon a
hula was announced. Hula girls took
their places on tho stage and went
through a most graceful danco. The
people cried for more and got a llttlo
moro but the people In chnrgo of the
affair wero for having things come to an
end at an early hour and so It was not
long beforo tho end was announced,
Tho natives did not go home nt once
but remained In tho drill shed nnd on

Is twelve inches and the other six

Doth guns were built In tho naval

The approximate amount of smoke
less powder required for each charge
of the 12-Inch gun is 400 pounds. Tho
projectllo weighs 850 pounds. Rcnr Ad
miral O'Nell estimates that tho nuizzlo
velocity will reach, If It does not exceed
2S00 feet a second nnd tho energy Is
estimated at 4G.6C2 foot tohs. A shell
fired by this gun will perforate 2-1.5
Inches of harveylzed steel and 20.1
Inches of Krupp steel. Dy using cap
ped projectiles a still greater thickness
of Krupp armor can be perforated.
Tho latest 12-Inch gun built abroad
has only produced a maximum velocity
of 2C0O feet a second nt Its muzzle. The

Vancouver, Monday, Nov. C. Ac
cording to advices Just received, C.
W. llellalrs, an authority on cable con
struction, who Is nt present In Sydney,
Australia, In speaking of the projected
Pacific cablo by Oreat Britain said:
"Wo should not hesltnto to link our
cables with tho United States cables to
the Far Kast, and to mo It seems un
wise to do otherwise. The only ob
jection I can seo Is that if tho United
States ere at war with another power,
that other power might cut our cablo
In Hawaiian waters."
Mr. llellalrs thought war between
Great Britain and tho United State?
was simply out of tho question, and
should not bo considered as a possible
contingency. Ho then urged tho con
struction of tho Pacific cable as an ab
solute necessity as a help to com
merce. Mr. llellalrs gives some Interesting
statistics regarding cables. The length
ot tho submarine cables ot tho world
Is 178,000 knots, and wcro built at it
cost of 20,000,000. The length ot
government-owned cables Is 20,000
