EUROPEAN MEDDLING PREVENTS IT.
Why the Offmon of the United States as
Medstor Nave not S. Aooepted
by Japan.
Washington, Nov. 14.-It Ie stated
here in omalal circles that Japan has
not yet aocepted the Invitation of the
United States to submit the question
of peace with Chins to our mediaton.
While the statement is probably cor
rect, there s reason to believe that
Japan has requested, as preliminary to
action upon our invitation, that she be
informed esplcitly Just what terms
China hu to propose as a basis of
treaty. Up to this moment China has
not submitted any definite proposals,
so that the delay appears to be rather
on her part than on Japan's.
It could not fairly be ezpected that
the Japanese would halt in their tri
umphant march, and perhaps afford
their opponents a very potent oppor
tunity to rally from their disorganized
condition, unless Japan Is furnished
with some satisfactory proposition by
China that may be binding beyond ques
tion upon the latter. No such satisfac
tory proposition has yet been made by
China, but, on the contrary, Chinese
tenders so far have been on a basis that
could not be accepted with safety and
consistency by Japan.
For instance, the Chinese proposition
was that Corea be evacuated by both
Chinese and Japanese troops. Inas
much as the princlpal cause of the war
was Japan's contention that the entire
Corean administrative and financial
system must be reformed on modern
lines, and that Japan must undertake
the task, the temporary occupation of
the country at least by Japan was a
necessary condition. And conditioning
that Japanese troops evacuate China
immediately would also violate all pre
cedent, for it is customary in such cases
for the vietorious nation to rematn in
posseuion of the captured territory as
a pledge until the payment of the war
indemnity.
An ofmlcial who has given much at
tention to the subject, iL of the opinion
that Russia will never consent to any
thing which looks like the indefanite
occupation of Cores by Japan unless
she Is herself allowed to take possession
of a portion of Cores for an eastern ter
minus of the Siberian railroad. France
Is reported to have demanded a ooalln

The Japanese minister, Mr. Kurino,
has reoeived the following cable dis
patch from Toklo: "Our army occupied
Tallen Wan the afternoon of the 5th
inst., having destroyed the Chinese tor
pedoes. Our fleet, transports and tor
pedo boats are safely anchoring in the
bay. Torpedo station, with equipments,
charts of submarine torpedoes, eight
cannon and ten telephone lines and tele
graphs have been captured."

nervous and missed an open, after run

enty-nlne, missing on a cross-table
draw. The wizard did not prove him
self equal to his title at this stage of
the game.

frequently applauded for his beauti
ful masse shots. He soon made sixty
seven and stopped by losehg a masse.
Schaefer then made the best shot of the
evening, when he made his twenty
seventh point of the inning. His cue
ball was on the rail between the two.
To make this shot he had to make one
of the finest masse scores seen in the
tourney. Score: Ives' grand total 1,800;

SHOT b3 HI FBrIENI
An Unfortunate Ldng to a Strule for a
Revolver.
George L. Scott, a well-known Mis..n
apolis salesman, who travels for Wy
man, Partridge & Co., was accldentally
shot at the Helena late yesterday after
noon. Up to the time of going to pres
the surgeons were unable to tell just
how serious may be his wound, but they
think that his chances for recoY.ry
are god. The shoutlag was eatIl.UI
accidental. The shot wag Ared by L.
C. Childs, formerly proprietor of Ih.
Boseman hotel, of Baosemn, who Ih
been In Helena several weeks. Mr.
Scott and Mr. ChilUd were well so
quainted, as the traveling man had of
ten stopped with Mr. Chil. i while the
latter was running the Boaseman. 'They
had played many a game of billiards
there and, as they happened to meet
yesterday, a game was naturally pro
posed. The men played nearly all
afternoon at the Helena. About I
o'clock they became tired of the play
and one of them proposed a walk ovaw
the towa. The other readily ares
and as Mr. Childs is a guest of the hotl,
he went to his room for his overoet,.
being accompanied by Mr. Scoott.
While in the room Mr. Scott plaked up
Mr. Child's revolver, a fine thirty-eight
caliber, double action Smith & Wesson.
Mr. Child. tried to take it away from
Mr. Scott, and succeeded, but Just as
he wrestled the pistol from Mr. bSott's
hands, he asoldentall discharges It.
The ball struck Mr. Sleets, making a
great wound in his side just above the
left hip. The injured man fell to the
floor, and his frightened friend called
for assistance, which soon arrived. Mr.
Scott was plaoed on the bed and Dr.
W. M. Bullard sent for. The doctor
was soon upon the scene and, after
making an examination, dressed the
wound. He found that the ball had
entered from in front and travelled, ap
parently, around the left side and be
low the ribs. Later in the evening Dr.
Wm. Treacy was also called, and the
two surgeons probed for the ball. but
unsuccessfully. Being a -gunshot
wound, the surgeons could not state
how serious it would be until some lit
tle time had elapsed. They believed,
however, that it would not prove fatal.
Immediately after the shooting and
in the presence of witnesses. Mr. Scott
made a statement exonerating Mr.
Childs from blame. He said that the
shooting was purely accidental, and
that it was about as much his fault as
It was Mr. Childe'. The latter gentle
man staid by the bedside of his Injured
friend all night.

BRAZIL'S NEW CHIEF.
Moraes Will Be Inauguratd President of
the Ug Republe at Rio
Today.
FIRST EVENT OF THE KIND IN BRAZIL.
Entire Harmony Exsts Between the Retiring
and Incoming Admlnkstrations In
That Country.
Wuashington, Nov. 14.-razilllan om
oers here give Interesting details of the
new cabinet of Brasil as briefly an
nounced by cable. The signlficant feat
ure of the new cabinet is that it din
closes the cordiality between the reign.
Ing president, Pelxoto, and the new
president, Moreas, who will be Inaugu
rated to-morrow. The new minister of
war is one of Pelioto's closest friends.
Minister Mendonlca, of Brazil, has re
oelved official programme of the fetes
thd festivals will reign throughout
Brazil in honor of the inauguration of a
new president on Thursday. The
occasion is much like the quadriennial
inauguration of a president of the
United States, except that the festivi
ties extend over five days and conclude
with the formal swearing in of the chief
executive. In view of reports of riot
and revolution in Brazil, Senator Men
donica gives an interesting outline of
the ceremonies as showing the tranquil
Ity of the country and Its interest in re
publican institutions. The present in
auguration has special significance, as
it Is the first induction of a president
elected by the people since Brazil put
aside monarchy and became a republic.
The first president after Dom Pedro's
abdlcation was chosen by congress, and
on his death the vice president, Peix
ato, uucceeded to the presidency and
has administered the ofice up to this
time. There have been critics of Bra
Sl's departure from monarchy to re
publicanlem who have prophesied that
she would toUow the course of other
southern republics in perpetuating the
presidents. But this has not been real
Ised. On the contrary, an election was
hdid last March, at a time when Brazil
w .s c3nvulsed with the revolution by
Admirals Da (ama and I)e Mello. The
tandidate of the republican party was
Senor Moreas, who was elected with
Uttle onposition.
Moreas Is a type of new republican.
Ism In Brasil, as he was president of
the Lonstitutional convention which
-ve the republie Its constitution and
afterwad " pr.dent of the senat
l•~be-n s-amsrt.4 in the enactment
of legslUoio The Inauguration cere
mony began at Rio de Janeiro Saturday
with a grand military review and the
reception of special envoys from Uru
guay and ArgenUne. The Uruguayan
officials bling medals and decorations
to be conferred in consequence of the
war with Paraguay. During the re
maining days the city is to be given
over to military and naval reviews, pro
cessions, etc. Elaborate preparations
have been made and the Brazilian capl
tal Is in gala attire, similar to the ap
pearance of Washington on inaugura
tion day. The Brasillan congress has
granted ample appropriatlons for the
event.
Speaking of the reported movement
to prevent the Inauguration of Moreas
and proclaim Pelxoto dictator, Minister
Mendonica says it is entirely unwar
ranted, as the celebration begun Sat
urday indicates. President Pelxoto will
continue to hold his position as a gen
eral of the army. Senator Mendonica
says the rebellious element In Southern
Brazil has recently been counselled by
its leader to abandon the fruitless
struggle. In any event, the minister
says, the rebellion is of small conse
quence, the strength. and resources of
razill being loyally given to the con
stitution and republican government.
MAIL TRANSPORTATION.
Busineseof the Department of the Second
Assistant P. M. C.
Washington. Nov. 14.-Owlngto the
illness of Second Assistant Postmaster
General Nellson, the report of his omice
is made by George F. Stone, who is act
Ing in his stead. The report deals with
that branch of the postal service which
looks after mail transportation. For
the star route service it Is shown that
there are 19,375 routes, with an aggre
gate length of 261,687 miles, and the
total of miles traveled is 113,670,338, at
an expense of $5,846,8L6; estimate for the
next year. $5,8765,000. Consideration is
being given to the feasibility of utiliz
ing electric and other rapid motor street
car lines to facilitate the transportation
of mails in important cities between the
main postofflce and branch offices, and
to and fron the main station.
A plan of this kind will probably in
clude the running of special street cars
for the exclusive use of the mail ser
vice, not only carrying locked pouches.
but In which a certain amount of din
tribution will be posslh)l. Of course,
such an arrangement could he effected
only by the hetarty co-operation of the
street car companies with the depart
nment. This oftli'e hopes to accomplish
some such substanllnt result in the dl
rectlon Indicated within the next year.
The cost of the railway mail service
was $3,212.3. d, nd the estimate for next
S,,ar, $3.20t,.000. Itallway postitfi.'e
clerks cost $6.7t,144., anli the estimate
fr next year is $7,333,000. The total
number of pieces of mall handled was
10.532,234,255, in which hut 1,2811.094 er
rors were. ade. The foreign mail nor
ii.e cost $12.39.31 ; estimate for next
year, $1,919,400.

John A. Stewart, president of the
United States Trust company, se 4 to
day: "The circular asking for bide, In

for the money. In my opinion no bl,
scrilption will be rec',.lved, the mnaker of

A leading hank pre.ld nt said to-dl y:
"If the~ banks alre to pay for the. blonds

or gold certificates Immediately on re
celpt of the notice of the aet .jptanc:e of

ties who made bids at the time of the
last luaue failed to make their bids
good, while others who were not re

when they were reJcted, made com
plaints of their treatment. Curtis said
the requirements in this circular were
to get rid of these classi.s of bidders.

Kansas City, Nov. 14.-The Missourl.
Kansas & Texas train No. ,1, held up
near Muskogee last night, has arrived
here. The two Wagner cars look as
it they had been through a battle. The
bandits intimidated the passengers by
firing through the windows. The rob
bers secured over $600 and about forty
watches and other articles of Jewelry.
The Wagner oonductor and the train
conductor were relieved of a little over
$40 each. The express car was being
protected by four armed guards when
-to d. mandl th Are at oace,
dr! the a. wh w herM
ons a few mata and with
drew to the rear of the train. The train
crew thought they were well rid of the
robbers when firing began on the Wag
ner cars.
Wagner Car Company Conductor Mur
phy was given a gunny sack by the
bandits and compelled to walk ahead
of them. Two robbers followed behind
with leveled guns. Passengers were re
quired to divest themselves of money
and jewels and drop them into the sack.
They were rather lenient about It, not
demanding a showdown from anybody.
but appearing satisfied when a passen
ger appeared to have dropped the firet
roll he had his hands on. The Wagner
passengers were all In their berths and
the oar was quite dark. The robbers or
dered more light, and made Murphy do
the talking necessary to convince the
passengers that they had better give
up. Passengers in the day coaches were
not molested.
HELD HER SKIRTh DOWN.
The Lady Had a Dog With Centlemanly
Intinets.
During the prevalence of the wind
storm yesterday atetrnoon the skirts
of the women acted like sails and car
rled them along like ships running be
fore a gale. While the wind was blow
ing its fiercest a well dressed lady came
down Broadway followed by a dog.
The dog wasn't presenting so much
surface to the wind as his mistress
was, so he got along very well, barring
the dust. But the lady was not. Every
fresh blast sent her skirts flying up
ward. Everytime they went up the dog
jumped and caught them and pulled
them down. As the lady's progress was
necessarily slow, this operation was
repeated a number of times as she
crossed Jackson street, to the admira
tion of a group of men who had sought
shelter in a business house.
The wind reached a velocity of forty
five miles an hour, and at no time from
the beginning of the storm until dark
did It blow less than twenty-four miles.
It not only whirled the dust about.
but it picked up small pebbles and
drove them into the face of pedestrians.
All who had no special business out on
the streets were glad to get into stores
and doorways. After the blow came
rain, and taking it altogether It was
about as disagrlrable day as has been
in this vicinity for somne time.
The weather man prtedlcted last night
that it would be colder to-day and that
it would probably snow.

The well-known road house kept by
Jack Toole, just beyond the Broad
water. was destroyed by fire on Mon
day night while the proprietor was tI
Helena attending the big celebration.
The road hou.s was quite a sporting re
sort and was well known all over thls
section of the country. After the fun
was over Monday night. Mr. Toole
started for home. When he thought he
was about there he looked around, but
could see no house. An examination
showed that the house which he had
left some hours before was a pile of
ashes. It was a frame building. The
loss will probably amount to 1,600.
There was no insurance. The fire was
evidently of incendiary origin.
