SCORCHING CHARGE BY COURT.
In summing up, Judge Blphnm said
he would ask the Jury to find a general
c-rdlct of guilty or not guilty. If they
were satisfied Hint Wright was guilty of
ono or more of these charges, they must
not be deterred from finding a verdict of
guilty by the suggestion that such a
verdict would cast a slur on the memo
ries of Lords Dufferln .ind Loch. It would
not do anything of the kind. Their con

days previously, but Wright had already
left for the United States. He waa ac

Which the stockholders lost more than

In Philadelphia nnd In New York. Wright
was one of the biggest plungers on the

more than Jlo.uXi.&OO out of them, he

where he floated the London Globe.

he reached the main body of men, proves
ithat It will be almost Impossible for the

At 3:30 p. m. Mike McQualde. one of
the leaders of the rescuers, came up

"We have seen at the bottom of the

the remains of human beings. It Is the

"When do you expect to reach the

he was asked.
"There is no such place," replied he.
"They nre scattered all over the mine,

"The question is undergoing alternate
periods of depression and encourage
ment. m For three or four days It was
believed that a final agreement was
very near at hand, but yesterday the
situation became a little less hopeful.
Although this slightly unfavorable turn
continues, it Is hoped that it will prove
a passing cloud, for the present situa
tion warrants neither optlmisllsm nor
pessimism being vo evenly balanced
that those intimately conversant with
the negotiations are unable to definitely
foresee the national result.
"Concerning Korea, Japan is showing
great caution in accepting Russia's as
surances of Japanese paramount au
thority in Korea. Therefore Jupan feels
that her safety requires the right to
fortify the coast of southeast Korea,
particularly Fusnn. but Russia Is un
willing to conuedi these, believing the
effect will be to make the Sea of Japan
a closed sea and that cast Siberia would
be perpetually cut off from the cccca.
Tho Ipiuo appears to be one which af
fects the interests of the maritime uow
ers. as well as Russia. Tne latter nas
rail outlets from the const on the Sea
of Japan, but the other powers arc
without such means of communication,
and. it would seem, have no Interest In
seeing that the entrance to the sea re
mains unfortified and open.
"Concerning Manchuria, the chief dif
ficulty still open is the limitation of tho
: 1 . t . . 1
Russia does not appear to object to the
full liberty of Japanese coming or going
individually for purposes of trade or
otherwise, but she is unwilling to con
cede rights permitting Japanese settle
ments in villages, similar to the foreign
settlement at Shanghai.
"There are still strong hopes that the 1
parties may find means of adjusting
these points, but for the present they
constitute the main issues remaining
Japan Intimates That Early Reply Is
Toklo, Jnu. 27. The Japanese Govern
ment hns diplomatically Indicated to Ba
ron de Rosen, the Russian Minister, that
an early response la desired to Japan's
iccent note to Russia. It Is calculated here
that fhe Japanese note reached the Rus
sian Cabinet on the afternoon of Januarv
ICth, nnd it Is folt that sufficient time
has elapsed for its consideration and the
preparation of a response. The Japanese
Government Is conscious of the possible
necessities of tho military nnd naval sit
uation, and is unwilling to permit eva
sions und dejays which nre designed to
pain time. The fuluro course of the Jap
anese Government Is a carefully fruarded
secret. Tho length of time that Jupan is
prepared to uwalt the pleasure of Ruesla
Is unknown. It seems probable that it
has been determined to act decisively
within a fow days. Tho popular temper
has long opposed further delay. While
many objected to Japan's taking tho Ini
tiative, a majority would now welcome
the Issuance of a brief ultimatum and a
declaration of war. If. thnt should prove
Ineffective. Some outside opinion here In
clines to the belief that tho activities of
Jupan vlll be limited to the seizure of
Korea which enterprise it Is thought Rus

The rear car of the Denver express
was the Denver sleeper. It is said that
most of those killed and seriously in
jured were in this car.
Dr Edward B. Clements was taken by'
his friend, John W. Moore of this city,
to the Terminal hotel. Dr. Clements,
who was badly Injured; made the follow
ing statement soon after arriving there-
"I was seated with English, and after
the crash came 1 knew nothing until
rescuers picked me out of the wreckage.
I awoko with a start, but was not con
scious of any great pain. I was lying
over the top of a seat, underneath which
English's dead body was found."
Next but one to the Denver sleeper
was a Portland (Or.) alceper, picked up
at Cameron Junction. None of tho pas
sengers in this car was hurt. The con
ductor of the express was Henry Walker.

Society Takes Action.
Now York, Jan. 26. The severe
weather prevailing over a greater part
of the country and the general heavy
snowfall has caused great mortality
among birds In fact, the destruction
of bird life has been so great that the
national committee of the Audubon so
cieties has been led to make an effort
1 to prevent It, nnd has Issued an appeal
to the public, especially children, to
care for the birds during the present
excessively Inclement weather.
The committee suggests that bones
Avith scraps of meat, nnd pieces of suet
be hung in orchards or door yards, and
thnt broken nuts and corn, small grain,
chaff and waste from the barn floor be
scattered in places where it can easily
be found by the birds.
