Tien Tsin, Aug. 1 A council of war
was held here to-day. Afterward the
viceroy told the representatives of the
European powers that he was confident
of the ultimate defeat of the Japanese,

Taku, as the garrison there bad been
strongly relnforoed. , '
Shanghai, Aug. 1 Although the
treaty ports are exempt from hostlll
ltiea during the war the precautions
taken to block the Yang-Tse-Klang
have rendered navigation unsafe ex
cept in broad daylight. The lights at

Sir William ABhmead Bartlett asked

operations had taken place and what
was definitely known In regard o the
sinking of the Chinese transport Kow
Sir Edward Gray, under foreign secre
tary, said that information In regard to
tne operations was not yet in possession
of the foreign office. The accounts re
ceived of the sinking of the Kow Shlng
were most conflicting. The foreign
office bad not yet decided upon the
question of compensation. Tbe Japan
ese government had spontaneously of
fered reparation if It should be proved
that their officers were in the wrong.

Tariff Conferees Have Not Tat
Beached a Decision.
Washington, Aug. 2. The democratic
members of the tariff conference com
mittee were In session three hours to
day. When they adjourned this after
noon the stereotyped reply that nothing
had been done Was given to all inquir
ers. It is known that while a number
of tentative propositions were discussed
regarding the principal items in dis
pute, none of them were adopted. But
there appears to be a prospect of future
success. :f. .;
In dlsouseinir the condition" -of af
fairs thte afternoon Mr. Jones,' one of
the senate conferees, stated that things
were now In such shape that It was
possible for the conference to hops that
they could reach a conclusion. It is
known that coal and iron no longer
trouble the committee so far as the
senate is concerned. Coal will remain
as it is, and if the house conferees want
a reciprocal clause In the item they can
have it. This reciprocity idea meets
with favor at the bands of some western
democrats who see a chance of sending
coal from Illinois and Mississippi Into
Canada. There can be no compromise
on the iron schedule and this will be left
at 40 cents a ton. '
The latest proposition in regard to
the sugar schedule is one that changes
the phraseology of the schedule and re
moves the alleged bidden proteotion to
the trust said to lurk In the present ad
valorem rate on the raw article and
limits their, protection to the differen
tial that is specifically set forth. Sena
tor Murphy has gone to Saratoga to re
main for. some time. He arranged a
pair with Senator Chandler. A (lcp)o-
cratio senator says: . ... .
"The pair was arranged so that . Mr.
Chandler might vote in any way to de
feat the bill." ,

The afternoon session was devoted to
tbe strike question. Reports frim dele
gates were read In order that the con
vention might see how the various
roads stood. The Santa Fe delegates
were heard on the condition of the
strike from Chicago to California. The
reports declared the road to be in bad
condition, the information being said to
be more accurate than tbe reports re
ceived by telegraph.
To-night metlngs were held in vari
ous parts of the city. Each body of
strikers will organize by roads so as tn
have a more complete organization
and condense the strike Information In
a more systematic manner.
A strong populist sentiment was de
veloped Ih the convention, and the
American Railway union voters will ev
idently be found supporting the tickets
of that party next fall. A subscription
was taken up for the benefit of the
Pullman strikers. The delegates will re
sume their 1 - deliberations to-morrow
morning, and with a night session will
probably adjourn Saturday.

wrath had waxed very warm by this
time, and he met Vllandl with all the
savageness of a wild beast
When the two men met Rssl threw
Vllandl to the floor, and a wild scene
followed. The antagonists gnashed Iholr
teeth, and Rossi catching Vllandl s
right hand In his mouth bit It In true
cannlbalistlo style. It was a revolting
affair. Rossi continued to bite his vic
tim, clinging to him with the tenacity
of a bulldog, and had not several Ital
ians Interfered he would have strangled
htm. After the melee Vllandl was very
badly chewed. Later he was arrested,
and a warrant is now out for Rosal's
Preparing for Work.
