London, Oct. 24.—A dispatch from
Shanghai to tho Times ears Chinese of

tween tlie Chinese and Japanese near
Wijo on Monday, resulting in tl.e retire

New York, Oct. 23.—A special dis
patch from Shanghai Bays: General
Yechi Chao and Wei Yn Kwoi,
formerly commanding in Corea, have
been handed over to tho proper
board for pnnißhment. They will prob*
ably lose their heads. The former is
charged with cowardice and with re
sponsibility for the murder of tbe
French missionary Joseau. Geneial
Wei is accusod of extortion and coward
ice. Other important officials havo
been cashiered, and shuffling has taken
place throughout the viceroy's provin
ces. Tho French minister haß threat

council, with serions conßeqn6nccs

London, Oct, 23—The correspondent
of tho Times at Tien Tain claims that
Japanese warships are reported to be
cruising off the Stian Tang promontory,
at the south of it, the intention being to
waylay Chinoße transports. The Chi
nese fleet left Wei Hai Wei, with orders
to attack the Japanese squadron.
The emperor of China, realizing the
importance of the naval battle fought
off the Yalu river, as prevonting a mar
atime invasion of China, has issued a
decree awarding honors to the foreign
offioern who eerved on board the Chi
nese ships, und bestowing three years'
pay on the widows of those who were
slain in this action.
Chinese officials report that a battle
occurred near Ye Chow and the Japan
ese were repulsed, with tho loss of 1000
men on each aide.

Fresh Facta Concerning the Sea Fight
In Tal Konn Harbor.
Victoria, B. tD., Oct. 23.—The North
ern Pacifio liner Tacoma, arrived thia
morning, brings Yokohama advices to
October 7th as follows.:
The only fresh tacts concerning the
eea fight near Taikoean harbor that can
be trusted, are supplied by private
letters from officers of the fleet.
They indicate that the bat
tle was planned with care and
deliberation and whatever imprudence
may have been shown by Individual
commanders, Admiral Ito acted witb
calm judgment throughout. lis warned
Viscount Knhaymn, chief of staff, who
joined the expedition aa a spectator,
and wae not expected to participate to
any extent in the proceedings, to keep
his mail steamer Saiko out of danger,
and cent instructions to the Akagi that
i-ho should not expose herself
to greatly superior forces, but
both ships accepted the heavy
odds and suffered accordingly. At one
stage of tbe affair tbey continued against
large ironclads within 500 metres range
and were frequently made target! for
toipedoea. Regular men-of-war would
probably justify themselves in ehaiing
all the perils of combat, how
aver ill-equipped, bnt the Sai
kio. with no armament but small
Armstrong and three rapid-firing
guns, and a merchant crew wholly un
used to handling artillery, was in no
condition to measure prowess with a
pair of 7000>ton battleships. Buch
deeds, thounh brilliant and picturesque,
belong rathet to the category in which
the Balaklnva battle ia included, than to
tho motheda of practical warfare.
It is now known that several Europe
ans, in addition to Herr yon Hanneken,
served on board tbe Chines, ebipH in
the battle. Two of them, both English,
were killed —Purvis, an engineer of tbe
Chin Ynen, and NichoUs, an instructor
on the Ting Yuen. Mt>Giflen and Hik
man of the Chin Ynen were woanded,
aud Albrechtand Hoffman, being on the
Tsi Yuen, were unharmed.
A report from HongkOßg states that a
number of foreigners in the customs ad
ministration have bean summoned to
teke command of warships at tbe north.
By way of contrast, it ia noteworthy
that none but nat!v*s ot Japan are per
mitted io aerve in either the army or
navy of thtt empire.
Facts come in very alow. Only two
days ago newa waa received that the
Kwang Ka, a new 10,000-ton cruiser,
ran aahore while trying to escape on the
night of September 17th, and was after
ward destroyed by Japanese torpedoes.
The information comes from Chee Foo,
and if it ia confirmed, the list of Chinese
losses must be increased.
The Japanese army movements are
carried on with great secrecy, but em
barkation of full corps cannot be ac
complished without attracting tbe
curious attention of the pnblic. Within
the past two moots portions of three
divisions recently placed under General
Oiyama'a command, have been trans
ported to Corea to the number, it is
aaid, of 20,000.
The government maintains an impen
etrable silence respecting the destina
nation of tbese troops, but no one sup
poses they are needed ou the
peninsula, and the universal
conviction ia that a speedy
descent upon the Chinese coast ie pro
jected. If this bold Btep has been really
determined npon, the necessity of Bet
ting about it before tbe approach of
winter ia recognized on ail sides.
Pricne Mori, formerly Diamio, of
Choßhua, has divided 30,000 yen equally
between tbe army and navy funds, and
distributed 3000 yen among the families
of soldiers now Berving who were born
in this province.
Capitalist Iwacaki, by far the richest
man in Japan, has presented the war de
partment a portable barracks, capable of
accommodating an army of 3000. An
imperial ordinance has been issued
instituting a eystem of distinguished
service pensions, in eeven clusses, ihe
highest granting 100 and the lowest 05
yen annually for life. If any pensioner
ie killed iv battle his family is to receive
the amount allotted to him for one year.
Count Saigo, minister of the navy, has
been promoted from the rank of vice ad
miral to that of admiral.
Enterprising speculators have ordered
from France designs for a panorama of
The French legation has gathered all

Criticisms of the National Guard of

ment —The Hsorsmento Fiasco
of Jnly 4th—Too IWsuy
By the Associated Press.
Sacramento, Oct. 23.—Lient. G. W.
Mclvor of the regnlar army, who was de
tailed to report on the condition of the
National guard, today filed his report
with the adjutant-general. lie first
deals witb the June encampments of the
First and Sixth infantry regiments at
Santa Cruz and Stockton, respectively,
and those of the Seventh and Ninth at
Santa Monica, in August. In the
Stockton camp, he says, there were un
seemly proceedings after taps and little
effort wae made to check thorn, the
offioers in some cases taking part in the
disturbances. In tbe formations of
companies the men were very slow, the
dely being sometimes 10 minutes. He
wae told tbe men were sleepy and could
not be made to turn out. Tbe camp
regulations were good and he fonnd
much to please him, and tbe men pre
sented a good appearance, but were lax
in the details of drill. Enlisted men
were careless about saluting officers,
He also gave instructions to the men
at Santa Cruz and speaks well of their
conduct and efficiency.
A good account is also given of the
Santa Monica camp.
He devotes considerable space to the
service performed by tbe National guard
during the railroad strike, going over
ground previously covered in other mil
itary reports. He says the San Fran
cisco regiments went to Sacramento
poorly equipped for service; speaks of
the meagre breakfast they received on
their arrival, and of the sensationel
events of the memorable Fourth of July.
He finds there were 829 men in line, and
113 officers, more than one-half the
latter bein;: field and staff officers. The
placing of tho Sacramonto men at the
head of the column to confront the
strikers massed at the depot wns, ha
thinks, an unwise disposition of the
troops, as the moral effect that might
have gone with the strange troops was
lost. With the crowd of men, women
and children mixed np with tbe soldiers
and strikers, he Bays, it is donbtful if
arms could have been usod if the orders
had been given.
The lieutenant refers to the fact that
"no effort was made to effect an entrance
with the San FrancißCO troops at the
east, end of the depot, which was open
After devoting considerable space to

Sacond—A reduction in the number of

sidering that thoy were all under pay.
Fur example, the First infantry bad

than 00 enlisted men, instead uf 40, as
at present. Under existing conditions,

ganizations, a battery of artillery, a
troop of cavalry, a naval battalion and a
signal corps. lam inclined to believe
tbat this Is too large a number for all to
be maintained up to tbe proper atandard
in numbers. In many cases throughout
the Btnte there is habitually a small at

appear at camp as insignificant squads.

Special to the Heeald.
Ventura, Oct. 23. —Hon. George S.
Patton was greetod here tonight by a
largo and enthusiastic audience of voters
of all parties. He delivered the best
speech from tbe standpoint of reason,
judgment and fairness that has been
heard here during this campaign. It
was an address which received the close
attention of his hearers and wbich will
undoubtedly have a visible effect npon
the vote which will bo cast in this
county next month, in so far as the con
gressional race is concerned.
ALFORD AT BAKERSFIELD.
Bakebsfikld, Oot. 23.—[Special to the
Herald.]— One of the largest and most
enthusiastic Democratic meetings of the
campaign was held here last evening. It
had been annonnced that Hon. William
H. Alford, the Democratic nominee for
congress, would speak at Armory hall,
and by 8 o'clock that large building was
crowded. Mr. Alford is a favorite in
ICern county, aa the early years of his
life were passed here. The contrast be
tween bis great speech and the one de
livered by his opponent, W. W. Bowere,
a ehort time ago, was striking. Mr.
Bowers said the Reilly bill was intro
duced for buncombe. Mr. Alford said
it waa introduced by the South
ern Pacifio company in dead ear
nest and wae intended to pass. Mr.
Atford'e bold attack upon tbe railroad
and his splendid defense of the Wilson
bill lias awakened a wild enthusiasm
for him in this county, and given au
opportunity to elect a man who will do
something for the district which baa
been so long unrepresented. Many men
here, regardless of party, will vote for
him. He eulogized the income tax
clause of the Wilson bill, and closed by
appealing to the voters to support the
proposed constitutional amendment re
pealing the tax on non-bearing fruit
and nut trees. The speech waa a mas
terly effort and haa,often interrupted by
applause. Tbe Bakersfield band fur
Col. A. B. Paris, who chanced to be in

By the Associated Press.
Naw Yokk, Oct. 23.—This has been a
day of conferences among the Democrat*
ie leaders with a view to straightening
ont the tangies resulting from the nomi
nation of factional Democratic congres
sional candidates in this city and Brook
lyn. Senator Hiill addressed himself to
the task early tbis morning, and had tha
energetic aid of Senator Fanlkner, chair
man of the Democratic congressional
committee, who came from Washington
last night. The latter was tbe active
mediator in the negotiations. Private
conferences were held with Fanlkner by
Mayor Gilroy and Police Commissionei
Martin, representing Tammany, and ex«
Mayor Grace and Francis Scott, who ran
for mayor against Mayor Grant in 1890
on the Reform ticket, representing tha
oonnty Democracy. All, it was stated,
were agreed on a policy of con
cession. Terms of compromise, it
is announced, are practically decided
upon, by which the knots will be cut
and the Democrats united on a Bingle
congressional candidate in each district.
All the details have not yet been ar
ranged. It is known, however, that
Tammany has agreed to withdraw its
candidates in two districts, and the
county Democracy in the others.
The indication Bt headquarters point
to the withdrawal by Tammany of Gen.
Dan Sickles in tbe Tenth and Majoi
Walsh in tbe Eighth. Dewitt Warner,
Robert Monroe arid ex-Congressman
Dnnphy are mentioned as possible Grace
candidates. General Sickles was at
headquarters tbis afternoon, and it was
Btated he was willing to make any per
sonal sacrifice to aid Senator Hill's can
didacy for governor. The opinion
was expressed by headquarters
people that Walsh would be
more difficult to deal with. To accom
plish the purpose aimed at, it was
agreed to transfer A nine Cummingi
from the Thirteenth to tbe Eighth dis
trict, but it is learned that Cummingg
bas protested, and his protest waa
backed by a delegation of trades as
sembly people tbis afternoon. He will
be allowed to remain where he is.
