TALE OF CANNIBALISM.
Two Men the Sole Survivors of a
Crew of Nineteen.
Victoria, B. C, May 15.The steam
ship Empress of India brings a ter
rible tale of shipwreck and cannibal
ism, which was recounted to the naval
court at Singapore by Johansen, a
Swede, and Martadna, a Spaniard, sole
survivors of 19 men, who sailed from
Cavite on the hark Angola, Oct. 12.
The Angola was wrecked on a coral
reef when six days out from Manila
and went to pieces soon after she
struck. The boats were smashed and
the crew made two rafts out of the
wreckage. They had been 22 days at
sea when one man died and then one
by one the other sailors died and their
bodies were thrown to the sharks,
which followed. A Frenchman went
mad and attacked the captain with an
axe and when the mate went to the
captain's assistance he was killed with
the axe by the Frenchman, who drank
his blood and ate his brains., The
others killed the Frenchman and ate
part of his body. Then one by one the
survivors died until but two were left,
who survived on small fish taken with
hooked nails and lines made of pieces
of canvas. They drifted until after 42
days of terrible suffering they were
washed ashore on the island of Soubi,
on Nov. 24. By that time they were
so weak that they could not walk but
had to crawl on their hands and knees.
The men lived there for about two
toonths. They had only currants,
mangoes and little fish to eat.
A Chinese junk arrived from Singa
pore and the survivors went on board
her. They went on her to Pulo Madi
and thence to Singapore.

CHINA'S ANSWER TO THE MIN-
ISTERS OF THE FOREIGN
COUNTRY IS IMPOVERISHED
The Utmost She Can Offer Is Fifteen
BORDERS ON INSOLENCE.
THEPRINCETON XHSTIOK: THURSDAY MAY 16, 1901.
AN APPEAL FOR EM
Million Taels Annually for the Next
Thirty YearsThis Will Leave Her
Unable to Meet the Expenses of Gov-
ernment Without AssistanceWould
Peking, May 15.The answer of
China to the statement of the minis
ters of the foreign powers as to the
losses sustained by nations and in
dividuals in China has been received.
The answer commences with an ap
peal for mercy, saying that the coun
try is impoverished. The answer ex
plains that the utmost China can
offer is 15,000,000 taels annually for
the next 30 years.
This amount will be derived as fol
lows: From salt, 10,000,000 taels
from the likin tax, 2,000,000 taels, and
from native customs 3,000,000 taels.
The communication further asserts
that were this done, it would leave
the country unable to meet the ex
penses of government without assist
ance. It requests that the foreign
customs be increased one-third and
the receipts therefrom be given to
China for the purposes of government.
The ministers refuse to discuss this
answer until it has been considered
by them in meeting.
Will Continue His Efforts to Secure
Abatement of Indemnity.
Washington, May 15.A cablegram
from W. W. Rockhill, our special com
missioner at Peking, received at the
state department mentions the receipt
By the ministers of the response of the
Chinese envoys to the ministers' de
mands for indemnity. The dispatch
indicates briefly that the Chinese rep
resent that an annual payment of $10,-
000,000 is the full extent of their power
pay on indemnity account. It will
take 30 years to discharge the debt
at that rate, without interest.
Mr. Rockhill makes no mention of
interest nor does he touch upon the
means by which the money is to be
raised by China, or say who is to
guarantee a loan necessary to be
made. It appears that the Chinese feel
themselves obliged to submit to the
powers in this question of indemnity
as in all other things and though
realizing their own inability to assume
this indebtedness of 450,000,000 taels
they feel obliged to make the, effort.
Mr. Rockhill has been instructed to
continue his efforts to secure an abate
ment of the total indemnity, but in the
present disposition of the powers little
hope of such is entertained.
A Foreign Minister's Opinion of the
Peking, May 15.The foreign min
isters refuse to allow themselves to
be quoted for publication regarding
the Chinese reply to the demand for
indemnity, but three of thjm gave per
sonal views of the matter. One of
them said he never expected the Chi
nese to agree to the demand without
arguing even had the total been only
$10,000,000. He considers the Chinese
offer of 15,000,000 taels annually for
30 years as absurd and ridiculous and
that the request that 7,000,000
be given them from the foreign cus
toms borders on insolence. The pow
ers, he thinks, will make a mistake if
they do not exact the utmost centime.
Another says it does not matter what
the Chinese propose, whatever the
powers decide upon will have to be
agreed to. Another thinks a satis
factory way will be found to reduce
the awards to Chinese ability to pay.
Meets With Qualified Assent.
Berlin, May 15.The news that
China agrees to the payment of the in
demnities demanded is received here
with general approval, both .in official
circles and privately, inasmuch as
Germany desires to wind up the Chi
nese affair. The proposition to extend
the payment over a period of 30 years
meets with a qualified assent.
For a National Park.
Oklahoma City, O. T., May 15.A
strong movement is on foot to have
the general land office set aside part
of the Wichita mountains for a na
tional park to be 10 miles square and

mountains are too rugged to be of
value for agricultural purposes, but
nevertheless possess scenic beauties
necessary for a great park. They are
situated between the Kiowa and Com
anche reservations, soon to be opened
to settlement, and are just west of

Investigating Board Favors Its Adop
tion by the Navy.
Washington, May 15.Admiral Brad
ford, chief of the naval bureau of
equipment, has given out the following
extract from the report of the board
Which has investigated the question
of transmitting messages by wireless
"From the examination at tlie sub
ject as outlined in the orders of the
department, the board makes the fol
"FirstThat the use of homing
pigeons be discontinued as soon as
wireless telegraphy is introduced into
"SecondThat pending such action
no new pigeon cotes be established.
ThirdThat wireless telegraphy be
adopted by the navy for transmission
of messages between distant points.
"FourthReferring to the last rec
ommendation the board is of the opin
ion that a high degree of special elec
trical training is demanded for the
successful operation of any system of
wireless telegraphy and it therefore
suggests as necessary the establish
ment of two stations, sufficiently far
removed from each other for the train
ing of officers and men. In its opinion
this requirement wo.uld be the best
met by the establishment of such sta
tions at the navyyard at Washington
and the naval academy at Annapolis.
If wireless telegraphy fulfills what
now seem to be its possibilities the
cadets should be thoroughly trained

was intense but as the long parade
got under way its force seemed to be
redoubled. Far up the line in advance
of the vanguard the cry was caught up
Block after block, in succession, was
soon faced with a surging mass who
broke forth into vociferous proclama
tion of welcome.
The line of march was handsomely
decorated with flags, bunting and
evergreens. At Van Ness avenue
President McKinley reviewed the pro
cession after which he was driven to
the ferry depot. In the large and
handsomely illuminated nave of the
building he received a vast crowd of
people. Mayor Phelan delivered a
brief address of welcome, to which
President McKinley responded. Enter
ing at one door of the nave, the people
passed down the hall to the southern
end, where President McKinley stood,
surrounded by members of his cabinet
and other prominent visitors. The

shaking but graciously bowed as the
people passed, each one saluting him
with a small flag.
