And I Innd to the owners of the goods on do hereby give notice that all citizens Washington, July 26. The excited feeling 1" shipping circles is Indicated by applications received at the state il, i ai tment from various mercantile interests for information respecting the seizures of merchant vessels and cargoes and the sinking of other ships in the far east. The. attorreys for the American Tiading company, which is concerned in the destruction of the cargo or the Knight Commander, have not yet sub mitted to the state department any formal demand for indemnity. It Is their intention to do so soon, but so far they have not been able to secure all if the data essential to the formation .f their claim. In the absence of action by the de partment of state In the case of any of the United States and others who may claim the protection of this gov ernment, who may misconduct them selves in the premises, will do so at their peril and that they can in no wise obtain any protection from the government of the United States against the consequences of their mis conduct." This makes clear to mercantile and shipping interests, the president's view that it is not In violation of United States law to shin contraband, but that it must be shipped at the owners' risk and is subject to seizure. While there is no authority for de claring positively in advance of an ac tual test, t'ae policy of the state de partment respecting recent seizures and the Finking of vesels with Ameri can cargoes, attention may be drawn to the fact that In the latest edition of 'Hall's International Law," u British work held in the highest esteem here as an authority, the doctrine is laid down without qualification that a neu tral shin must not be sunk by a belli gerent, and that if the detained vessel cannot be sent to port she must be re released and not sunk. This doctrine bears precisely upon the case of the Knight Commander, as far as the facts are known. The Japanese legation today receiv ed a cablegram from the foraign of fice at Tokio giving the story of the captain of the Pritish steamer Tsinan regarding the sinking of two Japanese sailing vessels by Russian men of war. is already announced. The dispatch says: "In these cases the Russians made no signals to the Japanese ves sels and did not search thetn, but sim- As no attempt was board the Knight Commander, an apol ogy for the action of the Russian cruisers and an agreement that In structions shall be given which will lire vent a repetition of such action.

INDIGNANT BRITISH. Demand to be Made Upon Russia for ReDaration. London, July 26. The British govern ment is taking an active interest In tii-i sinking of the Knight Commander by the Vladivostok squadron. All infor mation received by the government tends to establish -in the official mind the belief that an outrage has been committed for which no excuse exists in iniCrnatifHial law. Those aware f the feelings of the ministry said that all the members of the cabinet are in accord regarding the principle of Invio lability of innocent neutral shipping, as well as the principle that a neutral ship cannot be destroyed even if carry ing munitions of war.

Governor Peabody today issued a proclamation calling off military rule in Teller county and placing Cripple Creek district in cnarge of the civil authorities. This action was taken by the governor in face of opposition from many influ ential citizens of Cripple Creek who desire to prevent the deoprted union miners from returning to the district. Before issuing his order withdraw ing tne troops, however, Governor Peabody received assurances from Sheriff Edward Bell that his forces were able to control the situation. The military rule was proclaimed in Teller county on June 8, in consequence of disorderly acts following the explosion at Independence on June C, by which n.uny non-union miners were killed and injured. Previous to that there had been a large force of soldiers on uury ior many months in Cripple creeK district, but before the exnlo sion occurred these had all been with drawn.

Ryan, operator of an alleged get-rich-quick race concern, and Lumpkin A. Gill, manager of the Ar nold company, by the grand jury which has recently heard considerable additional evidence against the men in question. There are seven of the new indict ments. Four are against Ryan, three charging grand larceny, and one charg ing embezzlement, and three against Gill, two charging grand larceny and one charging embezzlement. It is stated that the charges are similar to those returned some months ago and thrown out of court on demurrer. I was then held by the court that Ryan the only defendant who went on trial was acting as trustee for depositors and was not subject to. indictment for embezzleement. W'hen this ruline was made, the cases against Gill and Ar nold were discontinued. Since then Mr. Folk and his assist ants have been conducting a system atic and thorough search of the stat utes for means by which an indictment could be drawn that would withstand the technical objection of the defense and they believe that they have found the way.

Soon afterward the senator left the hotel and. it la understood, met some men of this city who desired t lay before him reasons why he should become the head of the committee. In addition, Delancey Nicoll of this city, was in conference with several mem bers of the committee with a view M bringing about Mr. Gorman's' accept ance. It was said that a number. of New York business men were willing to guarantee the raising of a good siz ed camjiaign fund if Mr. Gorman could be prevailed upon to act as chairman. Friends of Thomas Taggart Mid they were not In the least disturbed by th efforts to bring out Gorman. John W. Kern, who has had charge of Taggnrt'.-: Interests, said the attempt to elect Gor man now would result in his cWeal. a.t the Taggait men had votes to elect the Indiana man and certainly would el, ft him. .Mr. Kern added that no verbal assurances that Judge Farker wanted some other man than Taggart for chairman would go with them, as tbey had verbal assurance that Parker ould not interfere or attempt to dic tate to the committee. There were busy scenes today around the rooms occupied by Connor Senator Hill. While Mr. Sheel an and other sought Senator Gorman and urged him to stand for the chairmanship.

Kern Placed Mr. Taggart in nomination, speaking brief ly about his ability and capacity as a democratic leader. No one else w.- named and Taggart was declared th unanimous choice of the committee. A delegation was sent o Jt after M Taggart who was escorted to the com mittee room. He thanked the com mittee for tho high honor it had -pai 1 him. He re.-.lized to the fullest ex tent, he said, the responsibilities of the position, but he felt that. wi:h the ticket und platform upon which the candidates stood, the democrats would win the next election.
