NOW MAKES BLOCKADE
IN SETTLING CHINA
Russian Minister's Attitude Constant
Source of Trouble -That
ment. London, March 25. Replying to Sir
Ellis Ashmcade-llartlett, Conservative,
who asked In the House of Commons
today whether Russia had presented
China with a modified ngrecment re
garding Manchuria and whether Rus
sia had withdrawn from the so-called
concert of Europe, the Under Secretary,
Lord Cranborne, said the Government
understood that the terms of the pro
rosed agreement were still under dis
cussion but he was unable to make any
positive statement on the subject.
The Russian Government, he added
had Informed the Government of Oreat
Ilrltaln that Russia had no Intention of
withdrawing co-operation with the oth
er Powers In China.
Peking, March 24. The foreign Min
isters seem utterly unable to agree as
to the best method of policing the lega
tion quarter. The proposition most
favored by the majority and most com
plained of by the minority Is one pro
viding that men of the regular armies
shall be detailed for the service, under
one officers connected with the allies.
United States Special Commissioner
Rockhlll Is one who objects to this
plan, as Is also the Drltlsh Minister,
Sir Ernest Satow, who says that,
though an International force Is de
sirable. It would be better that ths po
lice detail should be composed of sol
diers who are not liable to be called
nway when they are most useful. It Is
also undesirable, he thinks, that ths
commandant should be an officer ac
tively connected with any army, while
the Intention to make each legation
practically an armed camp Is a great
mistake and Is llablo to cause friction:
and It would be better far to make a
general International district.
The Home Ministers are seriously
considering the advisability of asking
the Government to reconsider the de
cision In favor of big legation guards,
as being liable, not only to keep the
court from returning to Peking, hut
also as a continual source of danger In
the dealings with the Chinese, as It
would be Impossible to keep the guards
entirely within the legation quarter,
which condition Prince Chlng and LI
Hung Chang Insist upon, saying that
otherwise It would bo Impossible to
guarantee order, especially when the
Chinese troops hall have returned to
Peking. One drunken soldier outside
the foreign settlement, they say, might
cauio another war.
The time which the Russians have
given the Chinese to sign the Manchu
rian agreement expires on Tuesday,
and should the agreement not be sign
ed then Russian will brink off negotia
tions. The agreement practically an
Prince Chlng and LI Hung Chang
consulted this morning but did not de
cide cither to sign the convention or
appeal to the Powers.
On behalf of China LI Hung Chang
desires to express gratitude to America
for her position In the matter.
The attitude of M. de Olcrs, the Rus
sian Minister, nt the meeting of the
foreign representatives Is embarras
sing nnd causes considerable annoy
ance. He refuses either to agree with
the other Ministers or holds apart en
tirely. THE EXECUTIVE COUNCIL
In the Executive Council today, the
Hilo Portuguese Sugar Company pre
sented a petition asking permission to
change Its.name to the Hawaiian Mill
Co. No-action was taken.
A letter from Sheriff Baldwin was
read saying that the people of Walluku
prefer the granting of a wholesale
liquor license at that place rather than
A complaint was read from C. J.
Ottmann complaining that ho had been
wrongfully deprived of a liquor li
cense at his place at Walklkl and ap
plying for a hotel license to sell
Uqours. No action was taken.
W. I. Rail of Walluku asked that his
liquor license be Issued In the name of
E. C. Macfarlane, as he proposed leav
ing. The request was refused.
SETTLE BY DIPLOMACY
Peking, March 22. Count von Wal
ilersee. General Harrow and General
Wognck have been In consultation, nnd
General Wogack has agreed to with
draw the Russian troops from the dis
puted ground of TlenUIn provided tho
Ilrltlsh nlso withdraw. He insisted
also upon a guarantee that work on
the railway siding should not proceed
until the matter had been diplomatical
ly adjusted. This proposal and stipu
lation were satisfactory to General
Barrow, and were adopted by him.
Consequently the British and Russian
troops will be withdrawn at 5 o'clock
this morning (Friday), thereby avoid
ing all trouble at present.
SETTLING THE INDEMNITY.
nerlln, March 25. A despatch from
Peking to the Cologne Gazette, dated
Sunday, March 21, Bays that at tho first
formal meeting of tho committee on
Indemnity, held In Peking Sunday It
was decided to Invite Sir Robert Hnrt,
director of the Chinese Imperial Marl
time customs; Mgr. Favlere, Vicar
Apostolic at Peking, and other experts,
financial and otherwise, to submit pro
posals on tho liojt mothud I ir raising
the amount of Indemnity to be demand
ed from China.
Washington, March 23. Attorney
General Griggs has handed to President
McKlnlcy his resignation, to take ef
fect March 31. Mr. Griggs Intends to
leae Washington on Saturday next for
his home In New Jersey, where here
after he will reside. His intention Is to
resume Immediately the practice of his
pi of fusion. It Is stated by his author
ity that he will be associated as counsel
with the firm of Dill, Uomseter & Bald
win of New York City, Ho also has
formed a partnership with Mr. 1)111 of
Jersey City under tho firm name of
Griggs & Dill, for practice In New Jer
sey. New York, March ?3. A special to
the Sun from Washington says: Some
of President McKlntey'j friends men
who are prominent and Influential In
both houses of Congress, are so out
spoken In criticising the selection of P,
C. Knox to be Attorney General that
the Impression has -jono abroad that
the President will abandon his pur
pose to select him Griggs' successor.
No official statement Is obtainable,
but there Is good reason for believing
that the President has not changed his
mind and thnt he docs not regard Knox
as ineligible because he happens to be
the attorney of the steel companies.

Editor Evening Bulletin: Tho at
tempt of the Advertiser of this morn
ing to vindicate Itself for giving rumor
to the report that a suspected case of
plague was In Honolulu Is tho most
miserable piece of Journalism it Is pos
sible to Imagine.
It would have been more discreet for
the editor to hnve awaited the result of
the post mortem before mentioning the
matter,, notwithstanding the fact that
other persons were as the Advertiser
says, alive to the rumor.
The report of the suspected caso as
mentioned In the morning organ upset
many persons and several suffered
from nervous prostration. I, like many
others, have discontinued my subscrip
tion to the 'Advertiser, and In doing so
cannot help expressing my dlsgurt at
