THE WAR IN THE ORIENT.
Japan Again Rejects Peace
China Is Willing to Accept
Germany Must Take the Initiative
Dtmorsllziid Condition of tho Chinese
Military—Frrquent Attacks on
Foralsnera—Para oca tion
By the Associated Press.
London, Oct. 24.—1t ia stated that
Japan haß again rejected tbe mediation
of a foreign power in hor diapnte with
China, while the latter conntry haa ex*
preased her readineaa to accept any
armistice on any reasonable condition.
Washington, Oct. 24. —The critical ill
ness of the czar haa f>r the time being
diverted Russia from the attention oho
was going to give to the eastern war,
and haa made it improbable the
czar should take the initiative to
ward bringing tbe conteetants to
gether. The intervention of England
or France has been viewed with die
trust, owing to the territorial interests
those countries have in Asia. Under
these circumstances diplomatic officials
here say Germany wiil doubtless take
the initiative in any peace settlement
between China and Japan. The inti
mation is made that negotiations will
not be deferred.
A DISGUSTED OFFICER.
Victoria, B. C, Oot, 24.—Among the
passengers arriving on tbe Empress of
Japan was Major Richter, late of tbe
Chinese army, who throw up his post of
inapector general at Tien Tain in dißgust.
He waß formerly in the Qerman army
and waa commissioned by Li Hung
Chang a couple of years ago to inspect
all the troops of the regular militia and
report on them and BUggest reforms and
improvement?. He entered heartily on
the work, but aoon found it impossible
to accomplish it. He found corruption
and fraud rampant, even his reports to
Li Hung Chang being garbled and cut
before they reached him, aud he could
accomplish nothing. The war with
Japan was never expected, and when it
came the Chinese were in a Btate of de
moralization, poorly armed, poorly
drilled and generally disorganized.
Large suras of money had beon ex
pended to increase the efficiency of the
army, but they had found their way
into the pockets of greedy, avaricioue
After leaving China Richter spent a
short time in Japan aud had a long con
ference with hiuh Jup.mefc officials at
Hiroshima. When taxed with haVing
given away valuable information, Rich
ter laughed at the idea, for ho said he
could gain no information from them he
could give to the Japanese. The Japa
neae had beon preparing for war for
aoveral years. They had complete sur
veyß of every port, the result of a large
amount of open nnd secret work. Ma
jor Richter said they had excellent in
formation as to the defenses of Tien
ADVICES FROM THK flltlENT.
The Empresa of Japan brings the fol
lowing advices from the orient:
The Chinese losses in the battle of Ta
kushan were: Killed, 700; wounded,
Two different accounts are published
in Yokohama papers with reference to
the Chinese preparations for defending
the passage of the Yaln river. One says
tbe Chinese troopa have erected six forts
on the southern bank of the river and 14
on the northern. Tbey have about 80
guns in position, and tbe force assembled
to dispute the passage of tbe Japanese
array into Manchuria is about 70,000.
All tbe troops that escaped from Ping
Yang are on the northern bank.
The other report says that the
Chinese forces only number 0000 on tho
northern bank and a similar number on
the southern, and that but eight forts
have been built so far, and that on the
appearance of the Japanese troops they
hastily started to build and strengthen
their position, evidently intending to as
sume a strictly defensive part.
Though the Chinese at Ping Yang
were imperfectly supplied with ammu
nition, they had plenty ol money. The
aggregate amount ot bullion falling into
the hands of the Japanese is estimated
at 995.420 yen, in gold coin and 180,000
yen in silver, besides several thousand
yen of Corean money.
Navigation in Shihtonnhe channel is
now very dangerous, 6t)o submarine
mines beving been laid. A large junk
struck a torpedo recently, aud both it
and a fishing boat were blown up and
the crews destroyed. A Chineee gun
boat was also destroyed in tbe same
PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS.
A fierce persecution has broken out in
tbo two southern provinces of Corea
against native Christians. This ia
beaded by tbe Tong Haks, allies of the
Chinese in Corea. Already a large
number of native converts bave been
murdered and many were robbed and
Pere Joaean, a French missionary, was
murdered, after being captured by Gen
eral Yeh, while on his way to Seoul.
He and hia attendant were beaten by
soldiers in the presence of General Yeh.
Tbey were afterwards seized by six sol
diera and hoisted off the ground by
the ears. While in this painful posi
tion Joseau waa stabbed in the side
with a bayonet by one of the soldiers.
Tbe unfortunate prisoners were then
thrown on their faces and tbeir beads
were literally hacked off. General Yeh
and staff complacently regarded the
whole transaction, and when the dread
ful business was over went away with
out a word, leaving*the headless bodies
bleeding on tbe bank oi tbe river. So
great iB the terror of Tong Haks tbat it j
was two days before the native Chris
tians ventured to bury tbe bodies.
ATTACKS ON FOREIGNERS.
At Pekia and Tien Tsin great fear is
felt by the foreign residents ol an attack
by the natives. The latter appear to
bave an extraordinary idea that tbe
foreigners are helping the Japanese, and
even some educated Chinese have been
heard to assert tbat in tbe recent naval
battle three French and four Russian
ships were engaged. Actual attacks on
foreigners are being made in Pekin.
The position of foreigners in the in
terior of China, especially in the north,
is regarded as extremely critical. Even
tbe residents of Shanghai feel it neces
sary to remind the commanders of the
European fleets of the dangers that
threaten tbem in caae the government
sufferß further reverses, and the few
aliens who remain in Pekin have far
more Berious cause for apprehension.
The authority of Li Hung Chang, which
would ordinarily be exercised on behalf
of strangers, is now so weakened that
hia promises of protection can no longer
No immediate movement from the
capital could safely be attempted, aa the
roads are thronged with disorderly
bodies of troops and the peasant popu

seems wailing only for a pretext to rise

One of the latest imperial decrees an

ceremonies for the prosecution of the

Soldiers of the army nnder General

Japanese newspapers are now re
quired to exercise great discretion in tbe

which it is inferred that tbe government

The government has given two Jap

extended to foreign correspondents it
will be greatly to the publio advantage.
In consequence of the persistent rumors
in open porta tbat Japan contemplates
a foieign loan, the correspondent of the
Associated Press ia authorized to state
that no such measure haa been consid
ered, and thai the government is confi
dent tbat ita domestic resources will be

li hung chang's decline.
The call of Prince Kung to power, as
president of the Tsung Li Yamen, is in
terpreted as another sign of Li Hung
Chang's decline. The half-forgotten
statesman, now over 70 yeara of age,
controlled the diplomacy of tbe empire
30 yeara ago, until be waa eet aside by
one of the palace conspiracies which fre
quently threw tho government into con
fueion. His appointment was quickly
followed by the nomination of Gen
Sung to the chief command of the north

equivalent to a denial of Li's petition to
be entrusted with direct management of
the military and naval iorces.
EXCITEMENT IN JAPAN.
All Japan is in a fever of excitement
awaiting news ot General Oyama's ex
pedition, supposed to be directed toward
some point on the Chinese coast within
tho Gulf of Pechili.
Beportß of landings at Port Arthur,
Wei Hai Wei and other localities are
published in the Japanese newspapers.
From the beginning the Japanese au
thorities have been determined to allow
no inaccurate reports to go lo th.

was injured. On tbe ships which re

HIS MAJESTY DYING.
The St. Petersburg correspondent of
the Daily News says: The official bulle
tin does not present the gravity of the
rzar's condition. The temporary relief
by tapping, he adde, means nothing. It
is the general opinion hia majesty is al
ready dying. It is known that his un
consciousness lasted several hours.
THE IMPERIAL WEDDING.
It is not known whether the wedding
of the czarowitz and Princess Alix oc
curred today or not. This silence is
ominous. It may be that a surgical
operation has delayed the ceremony.
Persistent rumors are in circulation of
mournful eick bed scenes and other
touching incidente. Princess Alix, it is
said, is still wttgini! a desperate struggle
against the fanatical zeal of theorthodox
clergymen, wbo insiatupon herdeclaring
the evangelical faith is accursed. The
princess cannot be pereuaded tbe
matter is a mere formality, and demands
that Bhe may be excused from pronounc
ing the words iv question. The correct
ness of these rumors cannot he vouched
for, and the fact is only mentioned tbat
they are in circulation and are receiving
fresh nourishment from the absence of
news about tho wedding. However, as
news from Lividia generally taLae con
siderable time in coming, news of the
marriage may still be expected.
ONLY A BETROTHAL,
The Berlin correspondent of the Tele
graph says ho hears it is probable that
only an ecclesiastical betrothal and ex

between the rzt/cwitz and Princess

the eastern church, is as indissoluble ac

at Democratio headquarters tbis evening

dates wbo were asked to witntlraw have

Strong, a Republican, for mayor.
At headquarters it was also said that
the indications this evening were that a
combination could not be made, although
tbe hope was expressed tbat it might.
Senator Fanlkner succeeded today in
bringing together Chairman Bell of the
Kings county regnlar Democracy and
Kdward M. Shepherd, the loader of the

I desire to express my gratitude to those

support means entire unanimity, at least
in the interior of tbe state, and is much
appreciated by me. 1 embrace this op

"Every Democrat has a right to ex
