JAPAN IS IVILLING
That the United States Shall Pre
vent the Petition of the
ASKING FOR SUSPENSION
Of the War - Minister Denby In
structed to Present the
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22.-1n accordance
with the suggestion of Japan, the state
department has notified Ministers Dunn
at Tokio and Denby at Pekin to trans
mit direct any offer that China may wish
to make Japan. The Chinese delegation
here is not notified as to what course its
government will take. The Associated
Press cable from Japan states, however,
that China has intimated a willingness
to pay an indemnity of 100.000,000 taels,
and in addition all the war expenses in
curred by Japan. As the war expenses
reach 150,000,000 taels, the total offer of
China would be 250,000,000 taels. A
tael, a Chinese silver coin, is worth
about 55 cents at the present exchange.
It is believed here arrangements between
the two nations could be effected on
terms providing for a small indemnity.
Diplomatists say that under ordinary ]
circumstances it would take some time
for China to formally present its offer to 1
Minister Denby, but, as the Japanese I
are now on their way to Port Arthur I
and about to make a last blow at China's 1
greatest fortress, it is anticipated that c
China may hurry negotiations to a con- I
clusion. It is expected that Minister %
Denby will transmit an offer by tele. t
graph to Tien Tein and Shanghai, ard a
thence by cable to Yokohama. i
Fighting Not stopped.

INSURANCE THIEVES. t
His Friends Say Young Howe Was Also
a Victim of Holmes.
PHILAdELPHIA, Nov. 22.-Jeptha D. C
Howe, the young St. Louis lawyer who, c
in connection with H. H. Holmes, is r
charged with defrauding a local insur
ance company out of $10,000, reached
this city today. He was met by Marshall
F. McDonald of St. Louis, a law partner t
of young Howe's brother, and surren
dered himself. Laywer McDonald said:
"This arch conspirator, H. H. Holmes, or a
H. M. Morgan, the name by which he t
was known in St. Louis, came to the
office while I was absent in Colorado and S
proposed the case, saying Mrs. Pitzel U
wanted some one to represent her. It
was the first case the boy had ever been n
offered, and he jumped right into it with
all the ardor and enthusiasm of youth. tl
He did not wait for us to return, and the I
result was this slick crook imposed upon t,
him. My young friend may have been b
indiscreet, but be is no criminal."i
Superintendent of Police Lindsay be- t
lieves Howe was misled by Holmes. A. d
S. L. Shields, the noted criminal lawyer, h
will act as counsel for young Howe. 1
The Mexico Universal Pays Its Respects
to the Guatemala Press. c
CITY OF MExICo, Nov. 22.-The Uni- p
versal Newspaper today contains a very ii
warlike article regarding the Mexican- h
Guatemalan trouble. It says: "In con
sequence of continued attacks against
Mexico and her government, made by n
the Guatemalan press, it was rumored
yesterday that this country would de
clare diplomatic relations with Guate
mala at an end. In Guatemala they say
the Mexicans always fled before the
Americans and French. The world t
knows the Mexican soldier Ioos not t
turn his back. Cherubusco, Chapultepec,
Pueblo, etc., are witnesses of that. With
Guatemala we do not expect glory or
gaining of laurels. We have of
fered them friendship and the-y return
black ingratitude, and our men and our
people are not in a humpn to listen to
the diatribes of the Guatemalan press."

THE HERSHFIELD SCANDAL.
Mr.. Aaron Hershfield and Mrs. L. H.
Hershfleld Have an Interesting Talk
About Each Other.
FAaRo, Nov. 22.-The Herachfield di
vorce case is stili attracting great atten
tion. The array of lawyers is able, and
the testimony is liable to be sensational.
The two points of the Herechfield side
are that the man was of unsound mind
when be married and was roped into the
marriage, and also that the defendant
wif' was unchaste at the time of the
marts.ge. Quite a number of deposi
tions have been read in support of the
insanity claim, and several, all thus far
from hotel attendants, in support of the
claim of unchastity, though the latter
are very weak,
A feature of the case is that the legal
battle is being supplemented by a news
paper, in which both sides seem to have
pretty good supporters. Yesterday's
Associated Press dispatch sent from
"Several days ago there appeared in
the Chicago Tribune a Fargo dispatch
claiming to give the history of the
Hershfield case, and an interview with
Mrs. Aaron Hershfield. She said that
coming from Helena to Fargo Mrs. L. 11.
Hershfield and her friends persisted in
walking past her and jeering at her and
the sufferings of her baby, which was
sick. These statements were answered
in the Daily Forum last evening. Mrs.
L. H. Hershfield was eulogized as a lady
of refined tastes and good breeding, and
it was declared preposterous that she
could be ungenerous to anyone
The Commonwealth interviewed Mrt
Aaron Hershfield today. She said: "I
do not see how any one could be so man
ifestly un'air in their statements. I
birme all this present trouble between
us-myself and husband-upon Mrs. L.
H. Hershtield. If the people only knew
her-but they probably do, at least they
do in Helena. All this talk about her
being such a fine lady with such antece
dents! Why, I could tell a good many
things about her antecedents. I could
tell all about how L. H. Herebfield got
acquainted with her while she was the
wife of a Mr. Aaron when she kept a
cigar store in the littie town of Virginia
City, and also about the $500 Mr. Aaron
received for divorcing her.
"Why," she exclaimed with spirit, "she
Le no more fit to be a banker's wife than
the lowest servant. The statement is all
true about Mrs. L. H. trying to make a
scene on the cars.
"Whenever she passed she would make
a face or laugh and try to create a dis
turbance, but I would not be guilty of
noticing or paying any attention to her.
She was not in her stateroom one-third
of the time during the day, but was
playing cards or boldly making sport of
me and my troubles." d
Commenting editorially on the case
the Daily Commonwealth says: "The c
Daily Forum has gone far out of its way
to do a lady harm who ranks far above
her tormentors in every 'particular, and
its 'house of Herebfield' smells a little
too much of the yoke to gratify the free- F
dom-loving people of the northwest. It li
half the many things said about this c
'house of Hersbfield' are true their case C
would parallel the celebrated Breckin- C
ridge case with Pollard left off."
Mrs. Aaron Hershfield says the Asso- (
ciated Press statement that the Montana
papers were subsidized by her enemies C
is wrong, and that they have all treated
her with great fairness

Nomue Speculations of the Pnossbilities of
NEW YORK, Nov. 23.-A special to the
New York World says: Japan will con
trol the world's supply of ca'nphor
should it get the island of Formosa as
part of its indemnity from China, ac
cording to Anthony T. Pritchard, who
lived many years in Asia.
"Camphor sold for less than 10 cents a
pound twenty years ago," he says, "but it
has advanced to over $1 a pound."
"It is generally believed by Japanese
merchants and travelers that if Japan
had not been drawn into the war with
China at this time it would have seized
the Hawaiian Islands, on the ground
that there are more Japanese there than
people of any other nationality. These
men look upon the move to secure For
mosa as in line with Japan's policy to
strengthen herself as 'the England of
the Pacific' and as preliminary to secur
ing the Phillippine Islands, and the Ha.
wailan Islands also should the United t
States fail to annex them.

TREATY OF AMITY
New Deal to 'Regulate Relations Be.
tween the United States
HAS BEEN FOBMALLY SIGNED
The Affair Looked Upon as Having I
an Important Diplomatic
WAsmINaToN, Nov. 23.-Secretary of
State Gresham, in behalf of the United
States and Minister Kurino of Japan, in 1
behalf of his country, have affixed their
signatures to the new treaty of amity I
and commerce between this country and
Japan. The final formalities in execu
tion of the instrument occurred at the I
state department after the close of of- 1
flee hours, and the fact that it now
awaits only the ratification of the two
governments was exclusively announced i
by the Associated Press yesterday. Sec
retary Gresham will now transmit the t
new treatly to the United States senate e
as soon as it convenes and Mr. Kurino
will forward it to the Japanese foreign
office to be approved by the emperor of
Japan and the privy council. Coming at r
the present time, the signing of the
treaty is considered of much significance
beyond its actual terms, as it establishes I
c rdiality between the countries, when I
foreign powers are endeavoring to show E
that the Japanese rejection of peace me- v
diation was a snub to the United States. I
The signing of the treaty concludes the I
labor which has been in progress for fit- t
teen years, and it was with a special c
view of closing the long negotiations i,
that Kurino was taken from an impor
tant post in the Japanese foreign office '
and sent to Washington. The event v
also will cause much comment in Great c
Britain, France, Switzerland, and other 1h
foreign countries as the action of the e
United States affects similar treaties 1
abroad. The treaty with Great Britain F
is closed and one with France and Switz- c
erland are largely dependent upon the
close of American negotiations.
WORSE AND WORSE. A
China's Greatest Battleship Is Disabled
by an Inexcusable Accident-Ad
vance on Port Arthur.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 23-The Chinese
have lost the most powerful vessel in
their navy, the great battleship Chen
Yuen, which stood the brunt of the
fighting at Yalu. A cable received at I
the state department today states that
the Chen Yuen in leaving Wei Hai Wei
harbor on the 13th inst. accidentally
struck a torpedo. She was beached, but
rendered useless for lack of docking fa
cilities. In despair at the catastrophe
the commander, Commodore Lin Si I
committed suicide. It was as well that
he did, for he would doubtless have been I
decapitated as the result of his error. It
is believed here that this lose has de
prived the Chinese navy of its offensive
power. There remains Ting Yuen, a
powerful battleship, and a few lesser
ironclads, but without the aid of the
Chen Yuen they would hardly dare to
make an offensive campaign, and prob
ably will remain in port to dssist in the I
