SIAM'S REPLY TO FRANCE.
An Answer to the Ultima

Several Siamese Strongholds Taken
by the French.
Prince Blamarels'a Disparaging Remarks
Abont tha Young; Kaiser's Ad
ty the Associated Press.
Paris, July 23, 1 a.m.—Siam's reply
to France's ultimatum has been handed
to Pavie, French minister resident in
Bangkok, and telegraphed to the Sia
mese legation here. Its terms rendered
necessary an exchange of telegrams
between the legation and Bangkok;
therefore the reply will not be given out
for several hours.
Tbe Siamese minister to France called
on the French foreign minister on Sat
urday morning asking for an extension
of time for a reply to the French ulti
matum. The request was refused, and
tbe Siamese minister was informed that
if not acceded to in the time specified
France would proceed at once to enforce

FIGHTING ON HUB MEKONG,
A dispatch to Le Temps from Saigon
says: A telegram from Stungtreng an
nounces that Captain Villera, command
ing the French forces at Khong, re
opened fire upon tbe Siamese on tbe
morning of the 10th inst. In the course
of the engagement tha French cap
tured Forts Dandna, Doago and
Donhan, thus confining the enemy to
Fort Donaon. The last named strong
hold, though protected by a ceres of
well constructed fortifications, was cap
tured on tbe following day without loas
to tbe French, who now occupy .tbe
entire group of islands. Only tbe town
of Khong remains to be captured. It is
estimated ttrat 300 Siamese were killed
and 200 wounded in the laat encounters.
170 MORE DC 1 FEE BYATKB,
New York, Jnly 22.—A London dis
patch state* that tbe Marquis of Salis
bury three yosrs ago made an agreement
-ub waudlngton, French ambassador
to London, by which India ehonld oc
cupy the Shan itateß between Burmah
and the northwej* frontier of Siam, al
though claimed by Siam, while France
wbb to have all of tVe left bank of the
Mekong. If tbis is »i the question aa
affecting England will resolve itself
in the delimitation of frontiers
by the bonndary commission.
Tbat France expected anch a juxtaposi
tion of English and French territory, is
shown by an important article in the
Paris Temps, which declares that tbe
history of "buffer" Btates haa had ita
day, as is proven by the mixing np of
English and French poaseasions in Asia,
Africa, Oceanica and America. England
herself bas been the first to destroy
"buffer" states, and a common frontier
is better calculated to preserve peace
than tbe existence of "buffer states"
which are generally mere fields for the
intrigues of overzealous functionaries.
The Ex-Chancellor Balls at tha Kaiser's
Bedlia. Jnly 22. —Addressing a large
party of excursionists from Brunswick,
which arrived yesterday afternoon,
Prince Bismarck said in part:
"Such opposition as I experienced
when I was minister-president of Prus
sia haß not been attempted recently.
During the old regime, however, no seri
ous danger was apprehended from the
opposition becanae the fullest confidence
wae felt that neither the empire nor
Prussia could be endangered as long as
the helm of state was in the hands of
the old emperor and hia ministry.
[Enthusiastic cheering.] Today the
same belief in the solidity and stability
of affairs can hardly be said to exist."
Speaking of tbe progress of affaire
recently, Bismarck said in regard to the
reicbtag being suspended : "The conse
quence was tbe creation of a vacuum
which haß been filled, not by monarch
lam, but by a red tape hierarchy; by a
bureaucracy, the same bureaucracy
which cleared the way for tne French
triumphal wave in 1806; which collapsed
before the Berlin barricades in 1843. Aa
far as I can perceive German interests
have made progress recently only in one
direction, in which we dared not look
formerly; that is in the direction of onr
Poliih compatriots. I cannot bring my
self to the belief that the, Polish nobility
and clergy will remain long in harmony
with the ministry."

Tha Finance Minister', Resignation Due
ta the Army Bill.
Beblin, Jaly 22.—The first phase in
the financial questions that accompany

probable that his motive was the fapt

or antbority to solve the financial prob
lem with wbich he was brought in
It is definitely stated fhat General yon
Kalteborn-Stachna, Prussian minister
of war, will also resign. His silence
during the debates on the army bill ia
often strongly commented on. His
glaring antagonism to his Bavarian col
league, General yon Safferling, in the
recent fodder debate in the reichstag,
was most unfortunate. The emperor
was chagrined that Bavaria should have
discomfited Prussia, and let fall re
marks that were repeated to Yon Kalte'
born-Stachna, wbo was left small option
but. to resign.
Tbe emperor haa ordered thatno army
maneuvers be held anywhere in Ger
many unless it is absolutely oertain tbat
the district in which it is proposed to
hold them, will not be damaged.

Ha Mow Wants the Fight to Gome GAT at
New York, July 22.—Apropos of the
statements from Chicago to the effect
that both Corbett and Mitchell had
signed articles for a fight to take place
in December before the Columbian
Athletic club of Chisago, Corbett today
sent a telegram from Chicago to Judge
Newton of the Coney Island club, saying
in part tbat he considers himself and
Mitchell bound to the Coney Island

the fight at Roby.
A local paper tonight received a tel

when his representative, Brady, told
Newton they would stick to the Coney
Island club as long aa wanted in the

NATIONAL BANK FAILURES.
Two Hundred Since the
First of January.
Five of Them Were United
The National Bank of Kentucky
Closes Its Doors.
Several More Collapses tn Milwaukee.
Business Failures Throughout
By the Associated Press.
Washington, July 22.—Since the let
of January 200 national banks have
closed their doors, againet lees than 50
for the same period last year. Of the
failures thia year, five have been United
Statea depositories, aa follows: First
National bank of Little Rock, Ark.;
Gate City National bank of Atlanta, Ga.;
People's National bank of Denver, Colo.;
German National bank of Denver, Colo.;
Kentucky National bank of Lonisville,
Ky. This latter bank, which closed its
doors today, had by the last report re
ceived $330,000 of United Statea funds.
The government, however, will not lose
anything by these failures, aa each na
tional bank that ia a government depos
itory has to deposit United States bonds
to the amount of the government money
it is allowed to carry.
In addition to the heavy failure of the
government depository at Louisville,
three other failures of national banks
were reported to Comptroller Eckels this
morning—the State and First National
banks of Kernon, Texas, capital $100,000
and $80,000 respectively, and tbe State
National bank of Knoxville, Term., cap
ital $100,000, all small institutions. The

A Big Corporation and a Wealthy In-
<11 vicinal Assigns.
Lodibville, Ky„ Jnly,22.—The New
Albany rail mills and Charles W. De
panw of New Albany, Ind., assigned
this afternoon. The rail mills' assets
are placed at $400,000, with liabilities
$350,000. Depauw ia a son of the late
W. C. Depauw, who was at the time of
oi his death tbe wealthiest man in this
-part of the country. C. W. Depauw is a
millionaire and bas assets really in ex
cess of his liabilitiea.
The Union Trust compahy of Indiana
polis, recently organized, was made
assignee of the New Albany Rail Mill
company and of Depauw individually.
The amount involved is nearly $1,000,
--000. It was brought about, bo far as the
mill is concerned, by the depression in
business. The Dopanw failure was
brought about by becoming an endorser
for the Premier steel works of Indiana
polis for $500,000. and for the rail mill
to the extent of $250,000 or more. The
failure wilt not affect any of the other
financial institutions in New Albany or
the glass works, as L. T. Depauw is
manager and principal owner of the
Depauw's individual assignment ia a
sweeping one, and a man who was worth
$1,000,000 three month ago is now prac
tically penniless. He includes in his
assignment hundreds of thou Bands of
dollars' worth of valuable stocks and
personal possessions, down to hia shot
gun and fishing tackle.

Other banks where the run was
heavy were the Second Ward National,
in which there were mostly small
German depositors, but it has the back

apprehended. President Noyos, of the
Milwaukee National, has given a state

There was no excitement, and no one
would have suspected that the bank was
closed up but for tbe crowd of loafers on
tbe sidewalks. The suspension had been
expected, aa the bank has a large
amount of paper which, though qilt
edged, could not be reatized on. Presi

San Diego, Jury 22—The rnins of'a
prehistoric city have just been discov
ered by a party of prospectora from
Yuma, while on the Colorado desert in
search of the Peg-Leg mine. The wind
had laid bare the walls and remains of
stone buildings for a distance of 420 feet
in length by 260 feet in width. Gigan
tic pillars, quaintly carved to represent
dragons' heads and rattlesnakes, atill
stand in the sands of the deaert, sup
porting on their tops huge slabs of
granite weighing many tons. The
frieze ornamentation resembled Egyp
tian ecnlpture and exhibited a greater
degree of skill than is poaeeseed by the
Indian artiaana of tbe present day.
Fragments of pottery were found under
neath the debris, and together with a
crumbled piece of frieze, were bronght
by Hank Ferguson, one of the pros
pectors, to thia city. One of his asso
ciates came to San Diego and the otherß
returned to Yuma nearly twoweeka ago,
but the story of their discovery wan
carefully guarded in the hope that ia
eoms way they might profit by it. Fer
guson called the matter to the attention
of H. C. Gordon, who interested
John H. Gay, jr., a wealthy
man of this city, in the discovery
and a week ago yesterday, in company
with four otherß, they went to the desert
to explore the rivera. They were driven
back by a sandstorm, reaching thia city
today, but will make a careful examina
tion of the rivera later in the season,
when the conditiona are favorable for
an extended exploration.

it has been my sole aim to select a man,
all things considered, who would best
represent the etate. tbe nation
and the party. Believing that
your very successful business career
and your experience in public
life in various capacities, in all
of which yon have served the people
faithfully, have fitted you well for per
forming the important duties devolving

I have concluded to tender the appoint

the governor talks.
To an Associated Press reporter Gov
ernor Marl:ham said this evening: "I
am very glad of the opportunity to talk
to newspaper men upon thia subject,
and I desire to talk quite freely. From
the beginning of my administration to
the present time, some unexpected or
extraordinary events have ocenrred from
time to time, wbich demanded deliber
ate consideration and care in making a
decision, but I believe that I have
never been called npon to perform an of
ficial act that haß caused me the anxiety
thia has. In addition to the names that
have been publicly discußsed, I bave
been urged by the friends of several
gentlemen to appoint them, which has
made my taak so mnch more difficult, aa
they did not care to be known as appli
cants unless they had some favorable
assurance. It has been a most serious
subject to me, and 1 think tbat no can
didate haa given it one thought to my
hundreds. I have listened to everyone
who desired to express an opfnion, and
have received letters, petitiona and com
munications by hundreds, expressing
private opinions from all over the Btate,
and yet I can say to you truthfully that
up to noon today no man knew what I
intended doing, for I did not fully deter
mine it until after that hour. I have
tried to divest myself of all personal
feeling in the matter and select a man
who from experience in public lite and
from business training could accomplish
if possible some of the many things
that a senator will be expected
to accomplish for this state, and
at tbe same time reconcile the differences
if any within tbe party. Among those
prominently mentioned there was no
one who wae pre-eminently qualified
above all others, but all were, in my
opinion, almost on an eauality, bo far aa
ability ie concerned. In the case of
Governor Perkins, however, I desire to
aay that he has for 30 years been prom
inent in the counsels of tbe Republican
party; has been connected iv an official
capacity with many public institutions;
haa served two terms aq state senator;
one term aa governor of thia state, and
has brought to each and every position
in public, as well aa private life, a spirit
and determination to succeed, equaled
by few men, and I believe that in this
position be will reflect great credit
on his etate and party. It haa
been thought by a great many
that the time taken in giving
consideration of this subject was wasted,
but it was my desire to hear every citi
zen who cared to express hia opinion
and to have time afterward to weigh
carefully what was st.id to me concern
ing the capabilities of every prominent
perßon mentioned for the place, and after
having come to a conclusion in the mat
ter, I am positive tbat it was the correct
couree to pursue."
