He Drops 00 Suddenly While at
Windsor Castle Receiving Honors.
Sir John Thompson, the Canadian
Prime Minister, expired at Windsor,
England, on the 12th inst. after the
meeting of tho Privy Council, at
which he was sworn in as a member.
While waiting at the Paddington
railroad station for half aa hour in
the tajoming for the special train for
Windsor to start, Sir John convers
ed in au auimated mauuor with
members of the Priry Council aud
Ministers. His appearance and man
ner did not giro tho slightest indi
cation that he was sutferiug from
any illness. After tho Privy Council
meeting Sir John went with tho
Ministers and others to luncheon.
Shortly afterward ho became sud
denly ill and expired almost im
mediately. Dr. Ellison, one of the
stirgeoiis-iU'Ordluary to tho house
hold at Windsor, was sent for
promptly, but he could do nothing.
sir John lhompsou was one ol
the speakers at the meeting of the
Colonial Institute the previous even
ing. Ho sat in the last tier of the
hall aud appeared to be in good
spirits. When he arose to address
tho meo'ing it was noticed that he
spoke in a husky voice, aud he apolo
gized for the brevity of his remarks,
saying that he was indisposed.
Nevertheless ho made a speech that
was well received. He referred to
the colonial conference as having
showu that tho British were a united
people, aud confidently predicted
that the fait Atlantic service would
soou be accomplished.
The Queen had invited Sir John
lo dine aud sleep al Windsor Castle
that night -au honor usually confer
red ou newly-sworn Privy Council
lors as well as Imperial Prime Min
isters ou taking ollice. Up till four
o'clock in I he evening the Queen bad
not been informed of the Canadian
Premier's tragic death. The great
est excitement prevailed at Windsor

The No "ork Herald has the fol
lowing fro Shanghai: Since the
capture ol Port Arthur Li Hung
Chang lias secretly reported to tho
Government of Peking his inability
to check the advance of the Japa
nese ai tines, lu his report he de
plores the want of railroads more
lhau the tack of troops, thus getting
even with the censors who formerly
frustrated his scheme for the devel
opment of the resources of the em
pire. Chang Chi Tung, tho now Viceroy
of Nankin, is very active, aud it mak
ing extensive ellorls lor the reloriu
attou of the army. Among his plans
is (lie construction of railways to
Shanghai. The Chinese regard
Chang Chi Tung as the rising star
of the empire.
Internally China is reported as
Before considering any peace pro
posals from China, Japan will in

The Japanese have effected a laud

The United States cruiser Balti
more witnessed the fall of Port
Arthur aud tho thick of the fight
that took place.
Large numbers of Toughaks made
au attack ou Konshtu, iu Corea, on
November '2S, and were defeated by
the Japanese with great slaughter.
Two of the rebel chiefs wore killed.
Tho Japanese Minister iu Wash
ington exptesses the strongest dis
belief iu the reports of atrocities
alleged lo have been committed by
the Japanese troops at Port Arthur.
Ho thinks it probable that some ex
cesses were committed iu the inter
val between the entry of the right
wing of the Japanese army into tbe
city, late iu the afternoon of Nov.
21, ami tho surrender of the coast
doioneo forts at 10 o'clock next
morning. All the definite news the
Legation had upon the subject was
a report that a uuiuber of Japanese
laborers, who had beeu armed with
swords for their own protection, en
tered the town duriug the battle
and were guilty of some excesses,
After previous battles the Japanese
dead were found decapitated aud
mutilated. It is surmised that the
Japanese laborers referred to, iufuri
ated over these atrocities aud iu
U.tmod with liquor fouud iu town,
