OPTION ON A CRUISER.
Japanese Government May Get Turk
ish Warship Now Building nt
Philadelphia.
Philadelphia, Jan. S The Japanese
Government has secured nn option on
the new Turkish cruiser MedJIdlc, now
being hurried to completion at Cramps's
shipyard. Both the Russian and Jauun
cpo Governments have been negotiating
with the Sultan for the cxultier for a
month pist through the Oltomnn bank,
an English corporation In Turkey. The
latter transacts nearly all of the Slnanclal
business In Turkey, and has practically
the oonlrol of all the Government's cash.
Representatives of Rufcla and Japan
have been working through th bank,
bidding higher and higher nn the war
fever increased, until. It Is claimed, the
Japanesu offered hnlf n million dollar?
more than tho cruiser cost, after which
tho RunHlnn representative withdrew.
Tho Medjldlo cot about J-J,l).COO. and
the Crnmpa are under contract to dellvev
her In Constantinople, when the balance
due will be paid. Should the sale be
made, the cruiser w'.ll he turned over Im
mediately to Japanese officers who arc
at Seattle awaiting orders from home to
proceed to Philadelphia.
The Medjldlo on her trial tost developed
a speed of 22.24 knots. Tha guns for her
havo been made In Englund, and if the
sale Is made will be shipped to Japan via
the Suez canal and mounted in the navy
yards In Yokohama. When In commls
bIoii she will bo manned by ICO men an!
will have ; battery of fourteen guns.
LIGHT WAS OUT.
Eight Train Crews Pass the Dangor
SigTinl Without Noticing Any
thing Was Wrong.
Chicago, Jan. S. Without noticing
that tho light in the semaphore above
a suburban station of a railroad enter
ing Chicago was not burning, eight
train crews have Dassed the danger
signal while a high olnelnl secretly
marked down the numbers of the
trains. Eight conductors, eight lire
men, and eight engineers are now on
an enforced vacation of sixty days.
The remarkable test was suggested
by the wreck that occurred on the Pere
Marquette railroad nenr Grand Rapids,
Mich., on December 26th, and by a de
sire of the company to throw tin ut
most safety precautions about ita pa
trons. According to the rules of tho com
pany a light that Is not burning has the
same significance that a red light, or
danger signal would have.

! NO BREACH OF PEACE AT PRESENT. I
I i
X Tolcio, Jan. S. The Japanese Government has practically determined to continue nego- X
X tiations. 3t is dissatisfied with Russia's latest terms, but does not feel warranted in issuing
t. an ultimatum or breaking off negotiations and will make another effort to secure their modi-
flea tiou before resorting 1o force. It is anticipated that the discussion will consume a few 1
f weeks, during which interim a breach of the peace is very improbable. X

CZAR'S TACTICS DILATORY
Eldest Statesmen f Japan to
Hold a. Conference,
People Bepose-Confidence in Govern
'ment's Ability to Rise to Oppor
tunity and Avert Crisis.
Toklo, Jan. S. The eldest statesmen
of Japan did not hold a conference
today, but. probably will confer tomor
row. ' Meanwhile, the wildest rumors
arc afloat.
The press unanimously demands that
the Government take ' decisive action,
thereby preventing Russia from gaining
advantages by further, .dnatory-. tac
tics. The people repose confidence in the
new Government's ability to rise to the
opportunity.
MAY AVOID CONFLICT.
French Government Believes War
"Will Bo Averted.
Paris, Jnn. S. The Associated Press
learns that in the opinion of the French
Government there la a chance of avoid
ing n conflict batween Russia and Japan
as a result of a concession made l;y Rus
sia In her latest note. The dispatches
which have corno to Paris from all quar
tern today have been most pessimistic,
and the hopefulness of the Government
Is In strong contrast with them.
It nppeurs thut Ruesln's concession re
lntcs io the recognition of the prepon
derance of the Interests of Japan In Ko
rea. This hus been the crux of the iuex
tlon between tho two powers up to the
present moment. Just how far tho con
cession goon it In Impossible to learn, but
the effect In Toklo. according to Informa
tion obtained, has been more satis-f-ictory
than the press dispatches show, nnd It is
believed that the negotiations will con
tinue. The French Government denies the sen
sational reports to the effect that It hns
ordered a division of warships and troops
to China. Only ono French ship Is undr
, Instructions to proceed to the far East.
Recognizing tho situation as dangerous,
thtre la talk In official ami diplomatic
circles of tho advisability or separate or
Joint mediation by tho powers who do
slro peace In tho far East.
it is said this could propcrfo" be done
In accordance with The Hague conven
tlon without giving offense to either Rus
sia or Japan.
The semi-official Temps expresses the
vliJw prevailing by calling attention to
the fact that Great Britain, France, tho
United Slates and Germany are nil Inter
ested In the malntonanco of peace, urg
ing that to prevent efforts v'th friendly
intervention by saying that one power
or tho other would hocomo offended, Is
tontrary to tho Interests of the Govcm
mcnt and humanity.
MEDIATION IS SUGGESTED.
Resolution Introduced in the Hou3e
on the Subject.
Washington. Jan. S. Representa
tive Slayden (Dcm.. Tox.) Introduced a
resolution in the House requesting the
President to tender the good ofIlcc3 or
mediation of the United States to Rus
sia and Japan. The resolution follows:
"Whereas, by the provisions of The
Hague peace convention of 1803, tender
of good offices or mediation by a nation,
stranger to a dispute, cannot be re
garded at an unfriendly act. and,
"Whereas, By said convention It Is
made the duty of signatory powers, If

STATUS OF MINISTER
BUCHANAN
DISCUSSED IN SENATE
Animated Debate Occurs In
Executive Session.
DIVISION ON PARTY LINES
Constitutional Right of Presi
dent Was tho Issue.
Democratic Point liaised That Roose
velt Had No Right to Create Posi
tion "Without Consent Senate.
Wnthlnglon, Jan. S. In a execu
tive session of the Senate today the
nomination of -W. I. Buchanan to bo
Minister to Panama was discussed for
more than two hours, the debate being
confined entirely to the constitutional
right of the President to appoint a
Minister to. the new Republic without
the co-opernlion of the Senate.
The point waa raised by the Demo
crats that the position to which Mr.
Buchanan was nominated was not in
existence when the appointment was
made, and that the President had no
right to create the position except with
the consent ot the Senate. The Demo
crats who supported this position were
Senators Morgan, Bacon, Bailey, Pct
tus and Blackburn.
The Republican Senators almost
unanimously supported the action of
the President. They declare he acted
wholly within his constltutlona' pre
rogative. The principal arguments on
that fide of the qeustlon were made by
Senators txlge, Cullom, McComas.
Spooner and Allison. No decision was
reported, and It was agreed that the
matter would be considered again . on
Monday.
The status of Mr. Buchanan, who Is
now at Panama acting virtually as
Minister of the United States, was dis
cussed at length. The general current
of the debate divided on party lines,
though questions propounded by Sen
ators Spooner and Heyburn, both Re
publicans, showed they entertained
some doubts as to tho legality of Mr.
Buchanan's acts at Panama until he
Is confirmed ay Minister by the Senate.
When the Senate went Into exectiJIve
session word was passed about among
the Republicans that when the argu
ments wero practically exhausted a
motion should be made to table Sen
ator Morgan's resolution to reconsider
the nomination. A motion of that char
acter Is not debatable. Some of the
arguments made by the Democruta, it
is said, demanded thorough considera
tion, and tho plnns of the Republicans
to conclude the debate were not carried
into effect.
SALT LAKER APPOINTED.
Senator Kearns Secure Position Tor
G. m. Wiley in Office of Secre
tary of Senate.
TRIBUNE SPECIAL.l
Washington, Jan. S. Senator Kearns to

AGREEMENT WITH STRIKERS IS NEAR
TIIIBUN'E SPEC IAD.
Helper, Utah, Jan. 8. The strikers
held a large meeting here today. There
wcrd representatives present from nil
the camps and matters pertaining to the
settlement of demands of the company
for them to vacate the houses occupied
by them were fully discussed . but no
final action was taken,
Tho houaoholdcrs In nil the carapv
but Castle Gato were agreeable to a
compromise of this question. A few
parties from Castle Gato opposed any
plan of settlement but tho large ma
jority favored the recommendations
made by their attorneys, Sam A, King
and A. S. Fowler. Another meeting
will be held tomorrow morning at Cas
tle Gt. when It Is believed an agree
ment will be ariired at.
The right to the ownership and pos
session of moro than 250 houses in in
volved In this settlement. These houses
are worth practically 560.000.
Mr. King was asked today tho pro
posed terms of settlement but he do
cllued to make any statement until It
was known that a sotttemont would be
agreed upon. He seemed, however, well
pleased with the progress being made.
It Is evident that all parties con
cerned' are anxious thnt this phase of
the strike question be immediately ter
minated and this ending will have an
important bearing on the final results.

MUST W8RK SEVEN HOURS.
Government Employees Will Have to
Earn Salaries in the
Future.
Washington, Jan. S. Unanimous decis
ion was reached by tho Cabinet that tho
hours of labor for Government employees
shall be from U a. m. until 1:20 p. m., a
half-hour of that time belnp allowed for
luncheon. Tho new regulation will apply
only to the cxeoutlvo departments, and
will go Into effect next Monday. Hcrc-tofor.-
the departmental hours have been
from 0 until ! o'clock, with n half-hour
for lutichecn. The decision reached to
day alfocls not only tho omployees in
Washington, but also those In tho de
partment!; throughout the country.
The question was raised by tho Ap
propriations committees of tho Houso and
Sonato on applications made to thorn by
thn heads of scvaral department for ad
ditional clerks. H was pointed out by
the committee that tho law distinctly
provided that employees of the depart
ments should work seven hours a day.
and that, undor the present system, the
Government wus settlnjc only six and a
half hours of labor. Tho committees
urged that, as a matter of economy in
the omploynent of additional assistance
In the departments, the present employees
ought to be required to work full seven
hours.
The subject was considered carefully by
tho Cabinet and the Jo!lslon reuched was
announced. It will affect approximately.
It Is cald, 100.0CO omployees of the Government.
UP TO THE PRESIDENT.
All Papere in the Case of H. Smith
Wooley Have Been Sent to
Executive.
TRIBUNE SPECIAL.!
Washington. Jan. S. Secretary Shaw Is
unable, after Inveetlgntlon Into the
charges that havo been brought against
II. Smith Wooley of Boise, to determine
whether or not this man Indorsed by Sen
ator Heyburn and Representative French,
should again be nominated by the Presi
dent to bo ossaycr of tho Boiso office. lie
has therefore transmitted all tho papers
to the President and shirked nil responsi
bility, leaving tho decision entirely with
the President.
Tho investigation made by Treasury In
spector Bnll was far from convincing and
leaves much to be desired. ThlB report,
however, Is largely offset by representa
tions made by Heyburn nnd French, who
claims thut tho President, when he re
views both sides of tho case, will reap
point Wooley.
