Carl Herlitz and his wife were held over to the grand jury today on charges of arson. Her litz pleaded guilty to the charges, but his wife denies her guilt.

They have been carrying out their theories by burning or blowing up houses to secure insurance. After the proceedings in court Her litz made a full confession. He said he came from New Orleans five years ago and met a man named Scharf who in structed him in anarchistic doctrines.

Comparative Strength of the Two Nations. Japan's Advantage in Naval Facilities. What She Lacks in Tonnage Is Made Up in Skill and Speed. Engagements by Sea and Land In Which the Chinese Forces Are Worsted. By the Associated Press. Victoria, Aug. 15. Lieut. Gen. Ta- kashima, who arrived on the steamer Tacoma, today in comparing the strength of China and Japan expressed himself as follows : "Japan is inferior in point of tonnage by some 3,000 tons, but China has vessels with a epeed of only 12 knots while Japan has vessels of 18 knots. As to skill and arms, China is no match for Japan. More over Bhe has only thirty vessels of the China merchants steam navigation com pany aB transports which she requires for the transportation of rice for the in terior. But Japan has about sixty steamers of over 2,000 tons for that purpose." In Yokahoma it is believed that China's plan will be to march troops into Corea by the way of Wiju and the Japanese government is said to be tak ing steps accordingly. From Hong' kong reports on the Corean difficulty are wild and of a contradictory nature The Hochi reports that intelligence is said to have been received from Tokio to the effect that the Chinese man-of- war Koot Su, which fled to the Corean coast after the engagement of July 25, reached Gasan where her crew aban doned herand landed, and a Japanese man-of-war captnred her.

The Dead Man's Wife and Sister Leave for Prescott on Receipt of News of His Death. Nothing was learned yesterday of the particulars of the suicide of J. A. May at Prescott on Monday night, in addi tion to the account contained in a dis' patch to The Republican yesterday morning. His wife who lives near the corner of Third avenue and Madison street, was notified by a telegram yesterday morn ing and she started Boon after with her sister for Prescott. The body will be buried there. May left here about three weeks ago for the purpose of engaging in his busi ness as an auctioneer. He did not know bow long be would be gone but expected to be in Phoenix not later than the first of September. The neighbors are unable to assign a motive for the suicide. Mav was of a parti cularly jovial disposition and his do mestic relations so far, as is known were pleasant. It is said that he had lately com plained of inability to meet his bills. He injured his ankle several weeks ago and before he had fully re covered from his injury he shot his finger. The last injury was protected by an accident insurance policy but at the time he left here he had not suc ceeded in getting his indemnity. The suicide came to Phoenix about two years ago from Florida where he is said to have Bome property. He served on the Confederate side of the Rebellion in a North Carolina regiment. During his residence here he made many friends. PEOPLES PARTY PRIMARIES. The Election Was Quiet, But a Good Vote Was Cast. The Populist primaries yesterday created hardly a ripple on the calm surface of affairs. There was a slight contest for choice of delegates, but it was so quietly conducted that few were aware of its existence. The ticket had been ingeniously arranged in the inter est ot one element. It contained thirtv names, twenty, of which were to be voted for. All the names objectionable to the compilers of. the ticket were placed at the bottom on the theorv that the indifferent-voter would expedite matters by cutting of the ten names at Insurance Company.

It is hardly necessary to state that the ruse was only partially successful, for the reason that compara tively few voters carry vest pocket scissors or coupon clippers, and for eliminating purposes the ready pencil is a more effective implement.. When a voter has to scratch and wants to scratch, he naturally begins at the top and carefully selects the inimical names. There was a great deal of scratching, as it appears from the result that of the 141 votes cast the highest received by any delegate was 129. Twenty-one delegates instead of twenty were chosen for the reason that four delegates each received eighty votes. The delegates are : Fred Hudson, M. H. Reno, J. W. Curns, J. Q. White. N. B. Hanville, S. S. Green, W. W. Ed wards, G. B. Norton, R. E. Farrington, J. O. Hall, A. J. Wilson, W. R. Reno, J. Maddox, M. N. Casterline, B. Doug lass, S. B. Wickersham, B. T. Gillett, P. L.
