China-Japan War News Closely Guarded By a Severe Press Cen sorship in Japan. All Reports Are Given a Strong Japanese Color. The English Recommended to Look to China for the Loss of the Brit ish Steamer Kow Sing. By the Associated Press. Victoria, B. C, Aug. 17. The steamer Empress of Japan arrived this morning from the Orient, having left Yokohoma August 5. War was formally declared on August 3. the proclamation being re ceived with ever token of rejoicing throughout Japan. Offers of men and means were coming from ail corners of the empire. Owing to the enactment of new press regulations on August 1, Japanese pa pers give only meagre details, strongly colored for Japanese readers of war happenings, thenew laws decreeing that editoia publishing anything regarding the war without its first being formally corrected and approved by government officers appointed for that purpose are liable to imprisonment at labor for a term of three months, and a fine as well. Details oi the engagement which resulted in the sinking of the British ship, Kow Sing, furnished by the Japanese, substantiates the contention that the owners of the vessel should look to China for repara tion asserting that the catastrophe was brought about solely by reason of the Chinese troops aboard refusing to allow Capt. Galworthy to carry out the instructions given him by the Japanese, he and his officers being forced to jump into the sea to escape being shot by the Chinese who were his passengers. Japan insists that the Kow Sing was sunk on account of the piratical con duct of Chinese troops on board. An engagement occurred at Seikwan on July 8. The Chinese were driven back with a heavy loss and the Japanese troops continued toward Asan. cials. Between five and six o'clock as Deputy Sheriff Widiner was walking around the outside of the building he heard a sound of an attack upon the brick wall under the floor. He made a hasty investigation and discovered an opening in the rotten floor. It had been made by Valentine Leandro, a United States prisoner, and a prisoner named Braskv, who is held to the grand jury on a charge of robbery. The hole in the floor was mad at a point which could not have been observed by any one who was not in the jail, and the point which was chosen at the last at tempted jail break. The floor iB patched with sheet iron but the wood is so rotten that the removal of the iron is accomplished without difficulty. AN ILL WIND That Does Not Bear Some Blessing. PERSONAL. Hon. A. J.

By the Associated Press. Chicago, Aug. 17. The strike com missioners' investigation elicited the fact that Director Goodwin, of the A. R. U., favored the proposition to na tionalize all large corporations. Pro fessor Bennis of the Chicago University favored a permanent notional board of arbitrators to prevent strikes. Strikers testified that they have hunted for work throughout the country after the strike and find they had been blacklisted. R. F. Mills, an engineer of Garrett, Iud., testified that on ac count of being a member of the A. R. U. the Illinois Steel company refused to re-employ him. J. B. Connors, a switchman on the Grand Trunk, testi fied that he waa refused employment because he had served on a labor com mittee. Chas. Naylor. a fireman and engineer of the Pennsylvania lines, was discharged because of bis being an A. R. U. man. He had no confidence in a permanent board of arbitration. He thought a new board should be ao pointed for each case. Vice-President Howard oi the A. k. U.-said the United States government is now blacklisting as boycotters 3000 emploves of the Union Pacific for their connection with the A. R. U. and the railroads of the country were threaten- ng to boycott the Missouri, Kansas & Texas road unless it withdrew its pres ent low rate to Washington.

Chinese War Makes a Chinese Loan And the Chinese Loan Makes a Boom in the Silver Market Negotiations Only Begun Have Al ready Created a Strong Up ward Tendency. Insurance. Tie In M Life By the Associated Press. London, Aug. 17. Financiers of this city, Berlin and other capitals of Europe are eagerly discussing the proposed Chinese loan. The loan which the great banking institutions of Berlin are said to be floating for China amounts to 10,000,000 taels. A tael represents about $1.40. Dozens of London and other promo ters have followed the example of German bankers with the result that China is not inclined to pay over four per cent on her loan, which will prob ably be in thirty year bonds. At least two-thirds of this amount will be payable to China in silver. Ne gotiations for the loan have already af fected the prices of silver, and there is no question that silver will go higher. Yesterday's Advance. Amsterdam, Aug. 17. Silver in the open market today advanced from 47 to 48 guilders per kilo hne. ; WIRES MUST UOME DOWN. THE INQUEST ENDED. The Manner of Black Jack's Death Undetermined. The coroner's jury yesterday in the in vestigation of the death of Black Jack decided that she came to her death in an unknown manner. The finding was unsatisfactory, but the onlv one that could be obtained under the circum stance. While there is little doubt in the minds of the members of the jury that she was murdered, it was impossi ble to establish the fact. Circumstances also point to the guilt of the Indian, Pedro, if a murder was committed. Sev eral witnesses were examined yester day, among whom .was Pedro, whose story had not changed since the day be fore. Geo. D. Beckers, who lives near the place where the body was found, testi fied that Pedro passed his house on Sunday evening going toward the reser vation. There was an Indian woman with him but she was not Black Jack. Pedro stopped to talk and the woman went on and had time to go half a mile before Pedro started to overtake her. She would then have been a considera ble distance beyond where the body was found. W. D. Black who lives this side of Becker's house saw a woman in the vi cinity who he is sure was Black Jack. Woh Lee, the Chinaman, testified that he saw Pedro that evening a9 the Indian testified but he denied the rest of his story. The other evidence was unimportant. Pas-Quin, a brother of the dead woman, was on the stand but only testified that he had not seen her since the Saturday before her death and knew of no motive anyone could have for killing her. A City Ordinance at San Francisco Is In Operation. San Francisco, Aug. 17. All electric wires must come off the house tops in San h rancisco.

The courts declare tne ordinance valid. Several electric companies are already rnshing work, put ting their wireB into underground con duits. LOCAL BRIEFS. EQUALIZING THE PRESSURE. CAUGHT IN THE ACT. Yesterday A Jail Break Averted Afternoon. A jail break was headed off yesterday afternoon by the vigilance of the olli- Result of Yesterday's Work in the Board. The territorial board of equalization made a great inroad yesterday into the business which lay before it. All varieties of property were disposed of except land and the valuation of this was determined except as to the return of Maricopa county. Members of the board cotiplain of the inefficient system of making assess ments and recommend changes in the method among which is the segregation of lands. The valuation in Cochise county was increased fifty per cent. In Coconino, whose return included grant lands, the value per acre was raised to .41 7-10. In all other counties than Maricopa no changes were made. An agreement as to the valuation in this county is likely to be arrived at with difficulty. The valuation of cattle per head was changed as follows: In Coconino, in creased .75; in Graham, reduced .25; in Maricopa, increased ten per cent. The following changes were made in sheeD valuations: Yavapai, reduced .50; Coconino, increased .05; Apache, increased .05; Pinal, reduced .31; Gila, increased .56. No change was deemed necessary in the valuation of horses, and all other varieties of live stock cut such a small figure that they were passed over. An unexpected result of the board's work will be a showing of a fal ling off in valuations of all kinds of property of nearly $2,000,000 as com pared with last year.

Benito Escobar was arrested yesterday by Deputy United States Marshal Slankard for selling liquor to an Indian His bail was placed at $500. Escobar s. offense was disclosed during the Inquest upon the death of Black Jack. He was identified bv Pedro, the Indian, as the man who sold him whisky on the day Black Jack died or was murdered. Bill Baker, the freighter, came down from Wickenberg yesterday. He Bays the man who reported his drowning in the Box canon is another.

Hala yesterday said that grass ia abun dant between there and Burger's well so that nearly all the terrors of a trip across the desert in that direction are temporarily removed. Improvements for which freighters are clamoring are a rope, bucket and curbing for the well. Most of them carry their own equip ments for drawing water bnt a curbing about the well is a necessity for keep ing rats and snakes out. A petition has been presented to the board of super visors to improve the well. Tom Brown will spend the rest of the summer on the chain gang. He was sentenced in police court yesterday to 150 days for indecent exposure. A great deal of complaint has lately been made concerning Brown's systematic disregard of the laws of decency bnt no body knew him and it was difficult to identify him. Marshal Molloy suc ceeded yesterday in obtaining evidence against him. In most of these cases the culprits are found to be drunk and irresponsible. Brown though was quite sober and impelled by pure cussedness. Bargain Six lots in Neahr's addition, for $1000. Apply to Dalton & Lamm, S. W. corner Washington and Wall Sts.
