At til druxxlste Id the Negotiations with the Allied Tower the Japanese Take Every Pos sible Prrraatlon for the Future Cnole Saul's Efforts to Prevent War. "Washington, May It An official dis patch from Toklo received at the Jap anese Legation yesterday says the rati fications of the treaty of peace between Japan and China were exchanged at Che Foo Wednesday. No change was made In the text of the treaty as origin ally concluded. Taking Into account, however, the recommendations made by Russia, Germany and France, the Japanese Government has agreed to re nounce the permanent possession of the Llao Tung Peninsula on condition that the arrangement regarding the terms and form of renunciation shall be re served for Judgment between Itself and the government of China. This latter stipulation la construed to mean that Japan will not surrender the peninsula until a' sultabla Indemnity shall have been paid, and that It may have been agreed between Japan and China the possession of Port Arthur It self will be retained by the Japanese for a term of years extending beyond the date when the Indemnity has been paid in full, thus assuring to Japan not alone the payment of the indemnity It self but also sufficient time to safe guard Itself against anything like a war of reprisal. The treaty of peace itself provides that Wel-Hal-Wel shall be held until the first 100,000,000 of the indemnity and the next two annual installments have been paid, so with the added guarantee of the possession of Port Arthur, even although only temporary, the Japanese Government would appear to have tak en every possible precaution for the future. The foregoing statement Is official, coming direct from Toklo by cable. The understanding Is it embo dies the reply which Japan recently gave to the protest of Russia and the allied powers. The State Department has published an appendix to the volume of foreign relations of 1894, comprising a history of the Chinese-Japanese war. Our con nection In this matter first appears in a dispatch dated June 22, 1894, to Unit ed States Minister Bill at Seoul, In which the State Department says: "In view of the friendly interest of the United States In the welfare of Corea and Its people, you are, by the direc tion of the President, instructed to use every possible effort for the preserva tion of peaceful conditions." Mr. Sill replied he would do as much as possible in the interest of peace; that neither the Japanese nor Chinese troops would withdraw, although the rebellion had been suppressed by the Coreansj that the Japanese were stub born j Japan seeming to desire war, and that Corean integrity was menaced. At this point Charles Denby, our repre sentative at Pekln, enters the field In a report to Secretary Gresham, describing preparations for war, and saying the action of Japan Is criticised there as hasty and unduly bellicose. July 2 the Corean minister here ap peared at the state department and by direction of his government appealed to Secretary Gresham to call a powerful conference to prevent a conflict. Hr. Denby July 8 cabled that Viceroy LI Hung Chang desired him to telegraph Washington to take the initiative In urging the powers to unite In requesting the Japanese government to withdraw Its troops from Corea. - July 2 Secretary Gresham sent a long letter to Ambassador Bayard at London, giving the statement of what had occurred in Washington. He also details an interview he had with the Japanese minister here, In which he In formed the minister It would be gratify ing to the United States if Japan would deal kindly and fairly with her feeble neighbor (Corea) whose helplessness enlisted our sympathy. Jn answer to the appeal of the Chi nese minister the secretary replied that a course was open to China which had been adopted by other powers namely: An offer to settle by friendly arbitra tion. October 6 Mr. Goschen, the British charge here, telegraphed from New London to ascertain whether the United States government would join with England, Germany, France, and Russia in intervention on the basis of the guarantee of Corean Independence Snd a war Indemnity to Japan, but six ays later Secretary Gresham replied that while the President earnestly de sired that China and Japan should agree upon terms of peace alike honor able to both and not be humbling to Corea, he could not Join the powers In an intervention. , November 23 Mr. Denby cabled an ap peal to the President, an appeal by China to do China the great favor to Intervene to stop war and re-establish peace. In reply, Mr. Gresham cabled November' 26, as follows: "Prompted by that sincere friendship which the United States constantly desires to show toward China the President di rects that you intimate his readiness to tender his good offices toward bringing the present war with Japan to a close on terms alike honorable to both na tions should he be assured that such a tender would be acceptable to both." Two days later he cabled Mr. Denby that while the President preferred to act alone he would act Jointly with other powers, if Japan consented, to deter mine the amount of Indemnity. After some further correspondence, showing that China was anxious to accept our good offices on the terms proposed, Mr. Dun transmits, under date of Nov. 17, a courteously-worded note from the Japanese government practically de clining the offer. Nov. 17 the Japanese government re auests that if China desires to approach Japan upon the subject of peace It shall be done through the United States le gation at Pekln, to which Secretary Gresham assented. Mr. Denby writes that China received this proposition with pleasure, though he gave it to un derstand that he proposes to act simply as an intermediary, stating the basis of negotiations and leaving them to ar range the details. The 23d he cabled that Chkia had made through him di rect overtures for peace on the basis of Corean Independence and a war in demnity. Some part of the correspondence at this point is devoted to a history of the attempt vt a settlement of the war through M Peitring and his rejection Was Beady to Fight. London, May 11. A dispatch from St. Petersburg states that up to Sunday it was believed that Japan would refuse to give up Port Arthur. Orders were given to mobilize 119,000 troops in the Irkutsk and Tomsk dis tricts and a credit of 20,000,000 rubles was opened. It was In view of this atti tude of Russia that Japan Immediately yielded to the demands made by Russia, France and Germany. THOUSANDS OF MEN SLAIN. Cadis Regiment of Spanish Soldiers Cut to Pieces by Cuban Rebels. Tampa, Fla., May 11. Passengers ar riving on the steamship Mascotte say the condition of things is encouraging to the insurgents in Cuba. It Is de clared that Camaguay has been Invaded by Gomes and that he, with 3,000 In surgents, besieged Guaymaro Monday. There were about 2,000 Spaniards In th city and, so the passengers say, after fighting became disastrous for the be sieged the regiment of Cadis, number ing about 2.B00, arrived, attacking tha Cubans in the rear. Gomes quickly, recovered from tha first onslaught and while a small fore kept up the conflict with the forces of the city his main body faced the new enemy. Fighting was very flerce, but it la asserted that the stragety of Gomes and the valor of the Insurgents resulted In their victory. The regiment of Cadis, it la said, was routed and cut to pieces by pursuing Cubans. The city, the passengers say, was taken and Is now in possession of the insurgents. The Cuban loss in killed and wounded Is put at 700, while it Is asserted that the Spanish loss In killed and wounded was 3,000. A. P. A. CONVENTION. , Annual Addreaa of the President of Mis Order. Milwaukee, Wis.t May 11. The whole of yesterday afternoon's session of tha Supreme Council of the A. P. A. was taken up with reading of the annual ad dress of President W. J. H. Traynor. He covered practically every one of the leading questions of the day, except tha financial question. He denounced In the most bitter tersss the alleged attempts of the Catholic church to control the government of this country. Touching on the question of organized labor Mr. Traynor said his order was unequivo cally In favor of organization, but he would have the organization absolute ly free from any and all church dicta tions. One of the most serious obstruc tions to the success of labor organisa tions at the present time came from church interference in connection with politics, and the hand of the Romish hierarchy could be too plainly seen In the operations of and results obtained by organized labor. He favored church taxation, woman suffrage, and said tha order needed a higher branch to which those who have been thoroughly tried will be eligible. He closed by saying that during the year everything was harmonious in the order. ELECT OFFICERS. State Federation of Women's Clnbs at , Iowa Adjourns. Cedar Rapids, Iowa, May 11.
