Yokohama, Aug. t The .. Japanese government has issued the following ac count of the engagement "between the Chinese and Japanese warships The Chinese cruisers, the Chthu Yuen and the Kuanl, were observed steaming from Kasan, and a transport carrying Chinese soldiers convoyed by the Chi nese warship ' Tsao-Klang was seen coming from Toklo toward Kasan. The Japanese cruisers Yoshluo and Nanlwa met the Chinese warships near Pantao Island. The Chinese did not salute, but made warlike preparations. In order to get out of the narow waters in which they were situated the Japanese cruls ers put to sea, whereupon the Tsax' Klang pursued the Nanlwa. The Nan lwa thereupon put about and steamed toward the two Japanese ships. Tbe Chihu-Yuen and the Kuanll, however, retreated and the Chlhu-Yuen hoisted the white flag above the Japanese naval ensign. The Nanlwa consequently de layed firing upon the warship and then the transport crossed the bow of the Nanlwa, The latter fired a blank shot and signalled the transport to stop. In the meantime the Chlhu-Yuen had approached under the Nanlwa's stern and when within a distance of about 300 metres she fired a torpedo, which missed the Japanese warship. The Nanlwa then opened Are upon the Chlhu-Yuen, and the Yoshlpo joined in the action. The Chihu-Yuen finally fled and was pursued. . The Chinaman was not overtaken. The second Chinese warshlp.the Kuanll, had in the meantime been engaged with the Japanese cruiser Akltutsul, but like the Chlhu-Yuen she finally fled and took refuge between, the shore and a shoal. The transport carried six guns nad had 1,100 soldiers on board. The captain of the transport surrendered, but the soldiers on board of her refused to do so and resisted capture. The Nanlwa was ultimately obliged to open Are upon the transport and sink her. The captain and others were rescued, by the boats of the Nanlwa. It was afterward discovered that the transport was a British steamer, the Kow Shlang. The boat had aboard four chiefs of battalion and Afteen colonels of the Chinese army In addition to the soldiers referred to. The Japanese gov ernment as soon as it was informed of the sinking of the British ship express ed its regrets, declaring to the British charge d'affaires that If after an in quiry had been made Japan was shown to be In the wrong the Japanese gov ernment was prepared to make full reparation for the loss sustained. Tbe naval .engagement, of July 26 should "not be eonfoundedwith the bat tle fought on July SO, nor should the Chihu-Yuen, a Chinese unarmored ship of 2,300 tons, in the first encounter, be confounded with the Chinese armored battleship Chen-Yuen, T.600 tons, report ed sunk in the second engagement. ' Russia Issues an Xdlet. St. Petersburg, Aug. 1. The Russian press unanimously declares that Russia will not tolerate any abridgement of Corean territory or any suppression of her independence, no matter what may be ,the result of the war between China and Japan, nor will she permit any interference on the part of Great Britain or any other power If such in terference conflicts With the Interests of Russia.

New York, Aug. l.-The White Star line steamer Majestic arrived here to day from 'Liverpool on time, but she collided with the British fishing schoon er Antelope In trying to do It. The schooner sank, carylng down with her one of her men, while another died Tuesday on the' Majestic from exhaus tion. The remainder of the crew, six In number, were landed here to-day. The collision occurred last Monday at 2 p. m. about 160 miles oft Sable Island. The Majestic had experienced three days of fog and was steaming at moder ate speed only when the lookouts re ported a schooner on the starboard tack dead ahead. Captain Parsell was on the steamer's bridge at the time. He had spent the best part of the night there because of the thick weather. The head of the Majestic swung around, the captain of the schooner putting his helm to starboard at the same time. It was too late, however. Just then the Majestlc's huge prow struck the schooner on the port quarter, splitting her clear to the starboard bow. Three boats of the Majestio were or dered manned and started away Imme diately after the crash, and that In charge of Chief Offloer Shenton was the first to strike the water. It had no sooner done so, however, than It was jammed against the steamer's side and stove, opening up badly at the bows. Officer Shenton put off notwithstand ing and took three of the schooner's orew from - the water. Boat No. 2, manned by the chief boatswain, resoued four others. . Gabriel Mitchell, eighteen years old, of Burin, N. F., sank within one hun dred feet of the Majestic before the life boats could reach him. It was found that William Woundy, one of the men saved by the same lifeboat, had several ribs broken and was seriously hurt In ternally by the crash. He died In great agony yesterday morning. His body was buried at sea at midnight last night. The names of the rescued men are Captain Reuben ' Bugben, Henry Bug ben, Thomas Bugben and Philip Bug ben, brothers', Mark Moran and Wil liam Murray, all of, St Johns.

IT ALWUNGES ON SUGAR. AO AQnr.KMKKT BEACHED BX THE XABlfr COMERESCE. The House Conferees Advance Tentative Propositions but Mono of Them Are Ac cepted by the N mate There Is No Change In the Situation. Washington, Aug. 1. It was thought that when the demoorntlo members of the conference committee on the tariff bill adjourned this afternooii something definite would have been agreed iijmiu. At the close of the mornlug session Chiilriimu Wilson, of the ways and menu committee, went to the while bouse and had a long conference. During the afternoon Senator Jones visited Secretary Carlisle and discussed the situation. Out of those two visit It was believed harmony and unity would come, but such hopes were doomed to disappointment. When the conferees met again this afternoon a number of tentative prop ositions were advanced by the house, but none of them were such that they could be accepted by the senate. It Is known that the sugar schedule alone prevents an agreement. At the confer ence to-day the members offered as a solution of the trouble the original schedule proposed by the senate grant ing a specific duty of one cent a pound for sugar testing 80 degrees and then progressing upward to refined sugar, but this was rejected as not acceptable to the senate. Several other sugges tions were made, but the senate confer ees notified . their colleagues that no schedule could be agreed to that did not include the differential on refined sugar. After 'more or less discussion the conference adjourned until to-morrow morning In the hope that the diffi cult problem might be solved at that time. One of the house conferees said this evening that when they met last Sat urday the senate conferees were in an ugly mood and were inclined to be dic tatorial, and the house conferees were piqued at their conduct. It would take some time for the cordial relations to be restored, but they had now returned to a working basis and were getting on nicely. Representative Bailey to-night said the house was anxious to pass some bill and he did not believe thirty- five, members would hold out against the 'sugar schedule. Representative Hendricks of New York said the senate bill was indefinitely better than the Mo Klnley-bill or the Mills bill and would not be a bad nwsaiure upon which to go to the country. . At the .conclusion of the afternoon conference Mr. Jones said there did not appear to be any ohange in the situa tion. He confessed he saw but little hope In the future unless the house was ready to yield on the three Items that were now In dispute. The senate conferees were feeling blue over the situation to-night and one sen ator . not a member of the conference who Is in touch with all stated that he would not be surprised if another dis agreeing report were made within the next two or three days. When it was suggested that this might kill the bill the reply was: "The president Is re sponsible for that result if it comes up on the country and no one else." This sentiment was also echoed by a leading conservative. DOWN WENT THE FAVORITE, The Betting Fraternity Given a Surprise at 7 Buffalo. Buffalo, Aug. 1. The downfall of J. M. D the red hot favorite In the 2:23 class, was the feature of to-day's grand circuit racing, which 8,000 people wit nessed. ' The winner of the merchants' and manufacturers' stake at Detroit was installed a very pronounced fa vorite right at the start, and thousands of dollars were thrown into the pool box.. Not so much money has been bet on a race in Buffalo for many a day.In the early pool the figures ranged: J. M. D., $65; Cob Webbs, $40; Rex Americus, $20; Harry Pennington, $5; field, $4. Just before the betting resolved It self Into $50 for the favorite and $40 for tickets the field, the buyers of the Aeld counted upon Cob Webbs to beat out J. M. D., and afterwards their expecta tions were finally realised. J. M. D. took the first two heatB in rather easy style, but both Cob Webbs and Rex Americus made the clip so hot in the finish of the third heat that the geld ing by Favorite Wilkes tired and fell back beaten and much distressed. In the fourth heat J. M. D. was laid up and Cob Webbs again showed up in front hard pressed by Rex Americus. In the fifth Cob Webbs once more out stripped the cross-grained of Onward, and J. M. D. was never In the argument, his driver claiming after It was over that he had thrown a shoe. The special pacing race between Rob ert J. (2:05) and Mascot (2:04) did not prove much of a contest. Robert J. easily defeated his rival in the first two miles and in the third waltzed away from him ; in a fashion that left no doubt as to which was the faster. The mile was in 2:06, within half a second of the track record, held by Hal Point er, and this could have been beaten had 3eers- forced Robert J. to do his best. Mascot was a dozen lengths back in this mile and 'it looked at one time as though he would be distanced. Joe E. Patohen had a hollow vlctorv in the 2:20 pace and not one of the field oould come anywhere' near doing it at his cliPi'-Angie D. was the solitary horse that could foroe him on a blt.but lie was not compelled to touch his record to win. vi h-' tu,';. ,.; Cob Webbs, the winner of the ODenins- event, is a six-year-old, and Is owned by tne 'Aur arotners or New York, who bought her at the, Palo Alto sale last ;sjbr for .2650, DIM IS DtMafMTED. He Will Never Asaln Have Any Connection With strikes. Chicago, Aug. 1. Eugene V. Debs, ac companied by his brothor Theodore, ar rived from Terrs Haute at 10:05 this morning. He returned to 'Chicago to preside at a convention of the Ameri can Railway union, which will be held to-morrow at L'hllck's hall, to decide whether the railway strike will be offi cially declared off, or If it be continued, to formulate a new plan of operation. If the delegates think as Mr. Debs does to-day, and there is little doubt that they will defer to his judgment, the convention will probably conclude that there Is nothlug to be gained by con tinuing a strike In which they are beaten. "I will never again have any official connection with a strike," said Mr. Debs this morning, and he admitted for the first time that the American Rail way union strike bad resulted In a failure. ' "The organised elements of society are opposed to strikes," he con tinued, "and so long as strikes are re pugnant to society It is useless to In augurate them. We might start In now and organise a strike on a most exten sive plan, but it would end inevitably as this one has. "We had the general managers whip ped, everyone knows that, until they tied our hand with Injunctions and brought out the troops. General Miles came here for the express purpose of beating the strikers not to preserve order. "He immediately went into consulta tion with the managers. He did not try to get our side of the question, and two days later he announced tri umphantly that he had broken the backbone of the strike. Under these circumstances It is vain to hope that anything can be gained by striking." "Father Bill" Sella LUzle. Brighton Beach,Aug. 1. W. C. Daly has sold the six-year-old mare Lizzie to the Sensation stable for $4,000. It Is a part of the agreement that a further sum of $1,000 be paid to Mr. Daly out of her earnings. Lizzie was the indirect cause of the Hartford sage's entries being rejected on all licensed tracks. ON THE BAIT. VIBID.
