The reports have been confirmed, however, that the Japanese are steadily repulsing detached bodies .of Chinese, and that they have taken Port Kin Chang. The Japanese force that land ed on October 25 north of Eliott Islands first marched eastward, probably to In tercept the army of General Sung, which was retreating from Pung-Wang-Chlng. They then turned west ward towards Tallenwan, advancing five miles dally. The dispatch adds that the reputa tion of the Japanese for humanity and for their supplies Is doing them Im mense servlca Their action is in great contrast to that of the Chinese, who make war In tbe ancient manner living on the country through which they pass and who are dreaded by the people and officials alike In victory and defeat.

Another dispatch from Shanghai says that consternation has been caused' by the discovery that the Psl-Tang squad ron has been caught In a trap at Port Arthur by the Japanese, owing to the neglect or overruling of LI Hung Chang's orders.

I r., ; .; "Japan could not accept, as an an swer to her proposals of reform in Corea, the maintenance of a Chinese army in the peninsula The presence of Chinese troops in Corea meant merely a series of horrors, suuh as are now perpetrat ing In Manchuria. Japan never menaced China's integrity. She did not Intend to break up the empire and Certainly does not wish others to do so. The height of Japan's ambition 1s to see China con solidated, freed from corruption, pros perous and open to commerce and civi lization." The Standard will say to-morrow: "There Is good ground for stating that there Is little prospect of united ac tion of the powers in China. Russia is ready to act, and France offers no dif ficulty, but Germany does not admit the utility of intervention." Beading May be Furecliited. Philadelphia, Nov. 8.

New; Tork, Nov. 8. The New Tork Yacht club held) a special meeting to night to consider' a letter from Lord Dunraven looking forward to a chal lenge for the America's cup. There was a large attendance of well known yachtsmen. Lord Dunraven's letter Is dated Oc tober 26 and is addressed to J. V. S. Oddie of the club. He states that the terms and conditions governing the Vigilant-Valkyrie matches would be quite satisfactory to him with several modifications. First, he suggests that yachts should be measured with all the weights on board; dead and alive, which they Intend to carry during a race and should be marked; that no alteration should be made In the amount of those weights, : and no ballast trimmed without notice given to the sailing committee not less than twenty four hours before a race. The second .suggestion is that all dead to windward and leeward matches should be started to windward. Lord Dunraven thinks It impossible to find a naturally better place for sailing matches than the outer bay of New Tork, but h objects to the over crowding by pleasure boats which, he says, is a great disadvantage. He is in favor of racingr off Marblehead, and says that If there is even a probability of starting a race, at that place he hopes the New Tork Tactot club will consent to do so, . U He coifcludes his letter by Suggesting thai: the challenger should have equal rights with' the' challenged relative to the selection v of the vessel to sail for the oup. It is unfair, he declares, that a challenging 'Clu .should be confined to one vessel while the challenged club can select a champion from an Indefinite number, ' ;;;'',.' The letter was discussed and theimat ter was placed to the hands of a spe cial committee. The club unanimously decided by resolution that the next races for the fiupl Should be sailed off New. Tork and that Marblehead and Newport wquJ not be considered un der any circumstances. ; , Lord Dunraven. was advised by cable of-the actioh of the club and was In formed that a committee had been formed to constdef his letter.
