Pride of the Chinese Navy, the Chen Yuen, Runs Onto a Torpedo and Is Wreoked. EXPLOSIVE WAS SET FOR JAPANESE. In Dpair Orver the Acoident Commodore Lin Commits Suicide-The Termn Offered for Peasoe. Washington, Nov. 22.-The Chinese have lost the most powerful vessel In their navy, the great battleship Chen Tuen, which stood the brunt of the fighting at Yalu. A cable received at the navy department to-day states that the Chen Yuen, In leaving Wet Hal Wei harbor on the 13th Instant, accidentally struck a torpedo. She was beached, but was rendered useless for lack of docking facilities. In despair at the catastrophe, the commander, Commogore Lin, com mitted suicide, It was as well that he did, for he would doubtless have been decapitated as the result of his error. It is believed here that this loss hae deprived the Chinese navy of Its offen. sive power. There remains the Tin. Yuen, a powerful battleship, and a few lesser Ironclads, but without the aid ol the Chen Yuen, they would hardly dare to make an offensive campaign, and probably will remain In port to asslt in the defense. The departure of the Chinese customs chief for Japan is regarded by omfcial, here as the result of the Japanese de mand for a direct offer from China. It is supposed he was summoned to Pekin to confer with the government as to ways and means for raising money for the war, and has been sent to Japan to arrange terms of peace. In accordance with the suggestion of Japan the state department has notified Minilters Dun, at Toklo, and Denby, at Pehla, to transmit 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 Japam states, however, that China has intimated a willingness to pay an in demnity of 100,000,0 taels, and In addl tion all the war expenses incurred by Japan. As the war expenses reach 10, 00.,000 taels, the total offer of China would be .000,0M taeis. A tael is a Chinese silver coin worth 75 cents at the present exchange. It is believed her arrangements between the two nations could be effected pn terms providlng for a smaller indemnity. DPlkomate iam that under ordiasr .wmetaho~e it would take some time for China to tbrmally present ts offer to Minister Denby, but as the Japanese are now at the walls of Port Arthur and about to make a last blow at China's greatest fortress, It is anticipated that China may hurry negotiations to a con clusion. It Is expected Minister Denby will transmit an offer by telegraph 'to Tien Tain and Shanghai, and thence by cable to Yokohama. The advance on Port Arthur is re garded as having an important bearing on the peace negotiations. Lieut. MI yoka, naval attache of the Japanese legation here, says the advance move ment has been most cautions, as the ground for forty miles around Port Ar thur has been found fairly alive with powder mines connected with electric wires to Port Arthur. Three days ago the Japanese were within a day's march of the fortress, but it was necessary to send ahead a small scouting party to pick a route away from the mines and electric wires. The regular roads cannot be used for the artillery, as it would be blown up, and accordingly the big guns have had to be moved in circuitous routes through the woods and morasses. It was regarded as likely that this cau tlous march would have been com pleted to-day, and the Japanese lega tion Is hourly expecting word that the decisive blow has been struck, though a long siege may be necessary, as the fortress has one of the strongest de fenses of modern times. It is believed that Japan's success would quickly close the peace negoti ations, but that a repulse would impel China to hold off further. Yokohama, Nov. 22.-The Chinese Pin Yank squadron is reported to have shelled the Japanese troops marching on Port Arthur. A desperate battle be tween the Chinese and Japanese fleets followed. The result is not known. Hiroshima. Nov. 22.-It Is reported that China has Intimated she will offer to pay a war Indemnity of 100.000,000 taels and all the war expenses Incurred by Japan in addition. TEN DAIS LVY JAIL. What It Cost Four Men to Try to Escape From the Marshal. Ed Young, John Atman, Charles Grant and M. Wheeler. the four com monwealers Indicted for resisting the United States marshal by running away when on the way to Jail, were brought before Judge Knowles. in the United States court, yesterday, to plead. All pleaded guilty. District Attorney Iseslie said the men had been in jail since their capture and had been sumcliently pun ished. He asked the ceurt to deal as lightly as possible with them. Judge Knowles wanted to know If these were. the men who had been aided to escape by citizens who were in sympathy with them. The district attorney said they we're, and if reports were true, a num ber of citizens were moreto blame in the matter thant the men were. Judge Knowles sentenced Young and Allnalle toe t(n days In Jail each. He misunler stood the pleln entered by Wheeler and Brant, thinking they had pleaded not guilty. When the matter was ex plainedl to him later in the dlay, he prominsed to, show the same Inercy to them ai he had to the others. They will als) get tell days In Jail. Thlosqht It Tin to Art. Columbus. 0.. Nov. 22.-Ireut, )yler, who ordered the troops at Washington C'ourt llouse to fire, according to the orders of ('elD. 'olt. told In the' court of Inquiry, of the battering of the doora bIy the mob with stones and other things. lit, said: "A shot fired by a ierson outside was followed by the cry 'Altogether.' and a terrific ilow opened the south door four feet, when I gave the command 'Fire.' After one volley I gave the command. 'Cease firing,' The door was open but a few inches. NuoIne of ihe men were Intoxicated." The witness was confident the mobh was determined upon gettlng In. The line of soldlers outside. around the bullding. would have been easlly over come. Ouch a defense would have been idiotic. He saw at least fifty revolvers In the crowd in the afternoon. TREAVBVBEB' BZEOBT. Submitted to Seeretary Carile by Hon. H. D. Morun. Washington, Nov. 2t.--'rhe troasuuer of the United States, II. D. Morgan, has submitted to Secretary Carlisle the annual report on the operations and condition of the treasury. The net or dinary revenues for the fiscal year end Ing June $0 were $27T,T72,019, a decrease of $88,079,40 as compared with the year before. The net ordinary expenditures were $347,525,279. a decreate of $14,ft2, 074. Including the public debt the, total expenditures were 60N,9008,6ts. At the (close of businern ,in June 30, 1893. there stood on the books of the department. charged to the treasurer, a balance of 3733,47.5i55. Adding to this the recelpts on all accounts gives $1.42.474,093 as the total to he accounted for, and deduct ing the expenditures leaves a balance of $763,565,540 on June 30. 1894. In addition to these balances, however,, there were other liabillties arising from the postal revenues, from disbursing offIcer and from other sources, which brought the total to $776,041,708 at the former date, and $804.314.753 at the latter. After set ting aside the amounts treated as un available, the principal of which are the deposits made with the states under the law of 183:6. there remained the sum of $744,536,6.5 in 1893, and the sum of $775, 310,560 in 1894, represented by live assets in the several offices of the treasury and mint, together with deposits In na tional banks. Not Enough in it. Washington, Nov. 22.-J. W. Ellis, lieutenant of Indian police in the Ildinn territory, has written a letter to Hecre tary Smith, In which he points out the dfllculties that are encountered In the Choctaw nation by reason of the Cook band of desperadones. He says the deputy marshals and Indian p'lice are not well enough paid to hunt down ues peradoes. The Indian police get $1S per month and cannot afford to pay trav eling and other expenses out of that amount In pursuit of robbers. He com plains that rewards are offered for des peradoes, but not paid if they are brought in. He suggests that the po lie be paid $50 per month and expenses. Good mena, he says, could then be ob tained and placed under the direction of the Indian agent, who could soon rid the terlrtory of desperadoes. He says the Cook gang is composed of two or three negroes and flfteen white men. Reservations for Diseeal, Washington, Nov. 32.-By executive order, and In conformity with the terms of the general act of June 6, 1184, a num ber of useless military reservations have been turned over by the war de partment to the Interior department for disposal under the laws. These reser vations are four on Puget Sound, namely: On the west saide of The Nar rows, at the south side of Big Harbor entrance, 5UI acres; on the west side of The Narrows, 437 acres; on the west aide of The Narrows, south of Point 1~vans, 86L acres; on the south side of Big Ibor at The Narrowe, 6M acres. SSouth Dakota Fort Bulley reser vation, containing 25,184 acres. In Art sons, Fort Bowie reservation, 23,040 acres. In Wyoming, Fort Kinney res ervation, 24,900 acres. In Nebraska, Fort Sidney reservation, 3,195 acres. In Oklahoma, Fort Supply reservation, 40, 320 acres. Trial Abruptly Ended. Washington, Nov. 22.-The first trial of the torpedo boat Ericsson don. The weather conditions were per fect and the torpedo boat was skim ming along at a twenty-three knot gait, preparatory to rushing over the line, when one of the air pumps broke down, ending the trial abruptly. THE LOAN A 8 UCCESS. More Than the Whole Amount Wanted by New York Capltal.ts. New York, Nov. 22.-8ubscriptions for an amount greater than the entire issue of $50,000,000 of government fives will be made by* a number of banks and other financial institutions of this city, including some foreign capital., This was decided to-day after a number of conferences, and it was settled also that the members of this agreement should make their bids separately, but at exactly the same price, and the ac tion Insures the success of the loan, which is now certain to be over-sub. scribed. The figures which the bankers in the agreement will bid for the bonds are not made public, but it is under stood they will allow a good profit to the government. Some of the banks which hold the largest gold reserve have agreed to furnish gold to subscribers to the loan to the amount of $30,000,000, and other banks announced that they would sup ply their customers with all the gold they may need for the purposes of the loan, without drawing upon the United States treasury. Gold Is being shipped from Man Francisco and other cities and from Canada to this country, for the account of Intending subscribers to the loan, $1,000,000 alone coming through the Bank of Montreal. It is to be seen from this that the situation Is brighten Ing, and it is fair to assume that as a result of the loan the treasury reserve, will be brought up to, or very inelr, the 3100,000,000 mark.

JUST HAVING SPORT. Continuation of the Fake From the Sound About the Eruptive Symptoms of Ranier. A DRAFT ON PURE IMAGINATION. The Story Helped Out by a Good Fabrica. tion From the Little Town of Ellensburg. HeatlIle, Wash., Nov. 22.--Mount RU ll,*r Is In i state of eruption; there can I, nol doubt, an many wltnesses e(r IhorInL. the reports of yesterday, and Iest Ify that they saw the great monarch hitting out smoke and steam from the crert. The mountain has been obscured to-day, owing to cloudy atmosphere, andI no new observations roull hie taken. Yesterday afternoon a reporter, equipped with a field gilas, a*cendled tlh. c.ourt house hill and for half an hlour got a view of the mountain from th. dolme of the court house building. It aplpeared that the dome-like aupping of thei mountain had fallen in, or had b-iin blown out by the force of an explo ,iona, and all the salw except a small amount on one corner had disappeared. $ttoam was issuing from the crater in Tr.eat quantitles and floated behind the ;ingged peak and then rose up to the Elouds above. The top of the mountain has changed materially, and peaks and Crevices appeared that never have been se.n before. Despite the incredulity of some per sons who have no means of knowing, not having even the evidence of their eyes, there is no reason to doubt that some natural convulasion has occurred at the summit of Mount Ranler. Those who observed the vapor, who are seven in number, are poitive In their adher eioe to their original statement, and several of them examined the mountain trouh powerhqi glasses and have ad drawings of the summit showlng e new peak. 'Teeema, Wash., Nov. 22.-There were no new developments here to-day In the Mount Taconma story, except that many more persons reported having felt the slight shook of earthquake at 6:30 o'clock last night. Reports have been received showing that It was felt In every section of the city, despite the as sertions of an evening paper, which, without investigation, to-night pro nounced the statement of creditable citisens to be unfounded. Beattle, Wash., Nov. 22.-A special to the Post Intelligencer from Fllensburg s-ys: The eruption of Mount Ranter has explained to the satisfaction of many a mystery here which baffled all. The water works reservoir here auddenly bagee atgausted. Investigation sa.wed W4r.vice running along the hill north and south, from one inch to one foot in width, and of unknown depth. It ran directly through the reservoir. letting the water out. It has been traoed several hundred feet along the hill. No shocks of earthquake have been felt here so far as known. Portland, Ore., Nov. 22.-Advices rom Seattle to-day are to the effect that the story of Mount Ranler being in a state of eruption is a huge canard, started by a local paper. 11O. C'HABITY'B HAKE. The Lantern Parade and Entertaimeat by the Wheesmen To.niht. The lantern parade of the Wheel men's club to-night promises to be a very pretty affair. The club will be headed by the Higgins Cadet band. The most interesting feature of the pro. cession will be the spectacle of a man riding upon one wheel. This difficult feat will be performed by W. S. Maltby, the champion trick rider, who is now in the city. The procession will start from the head of Main street, down which it will proceed to the auditorium. The club membership Is quite large, and as each wheelman's machine will be gaily decorated with lanterns, the pro cession is bound to be a very pretty one. At the auditorium will be given a very interesting entertainment, in which Mr. Maltby will take the leading part. He is a trick rider of national reputation and will perform the most wonderful of feats upon the safety and old or. dinary. Mr. Maltby performed at the world's fair before thousands and he was there given the title of champion. The wheelmen's club always entertains well. and no one will be disappointed at the auditorium to-night. The at tendance should be large for the re elipts go to swell the Associated Char ities' fund.

A number of the eleven are ex ,erl.nce.d players, and, as the average welght of both teams will be 146 and 149 pounds respectively, a very good Kanle ie expected. For the Helenas, Hermann will play 'lnter. Hie played In the first game' be tweet- the two clubs, and is a strong. hardy player. Hornky and l/Jrd will play guards.

Young Yaeger holds the Helena records for sprinting, and will certainly give the Butte boys all they want to catch him a clear field. Ward played for years on the Exeter eleven: played also on the Yale freshmen eleven. He is a player of repute, and as a ground gainer he has no equal. Thomas Hall, the captain, will be fullback. He can kick farther, hit the line harder and stand more hard knocks than any man on the team. He is a good general and plays the game for all there is in it. The club colors are blue and white, and ladies are admitted tree and are invited to come. The game starts at I p. m. sharp. As the club Is under heavy expense, they ask a generous attendance ton or der to meet these expenses. The club played In Butte last June and were treatd royally, so they ask a generous patronage to-morrow. FOR THEIR PART ONLY. A Case of Inltest to rple Who Co . Of1ol Bonds. A case of considerable Interest to peo ple who go on the bonds of federal om cals was tried and decided in the United sttes court yesterday. H. 0. Hoesman. while pistmaster at MIs soula., was found to be short In his ac counts 83,236.63. The government brought suit for this amount against bis bondsmen. The case was tried be fore Judge Knowles. without a jury. George F. Shelton represented the gov ernment, and Lee Word the defendants. The claim was set up by the defense that at the time the bondsmen inter ested in this suit became responsible, ,gs.86 of the deficiency had already accumulated. It was held that the bondsmen could not be held for a short. age which existed before they obligated themselves. For the government it was claimed that the responsibility of the bondsmen extended to the whole term of omce. Judge Knowles. in ruling on the matter, held that the Injustice of taking money out of one period of a poetmuater's term and applying it to mother period was too apparent to comment on, and he would not allow it unless the authorities were over whelmingly in favor of that position. He allowed as an offset to the claim of the government the $1,18.68 which had been the shortage at the time one set of bondsmen withdrew and the other st took their place. The government wau given judgment for 3546.78. the shortage which occurred during the time the second set of bondsmen were liable. The judge also allowed inter et on this from the time demand was made for settlement. Suit will now have to be instituted against the for mer bondsmen for the $1.81.65. The effect of the decision is that bondsmen who withdraw from a bond re liable for any shortage existing at the time of that withdrawal.
