Japanese Control Corea Nearly 80, 000,000 Population Majority For Municipal Ownership Page Mur der Mystery -Death of Queen Is. abella of Spain. The brief dispatches from tho seal of war In the Far East appearing lit the London newspapers durlnfl tho past few days have all been of a curiously stereotyped character, Indi cating that an active censorahlp pr vails. This applies particularly to pointi under Japanese coitiol; but from tin Russian side also it is eviiftit care Is being exercised to prevent the news oi uporatlons leaking out. The Japa ncue licet continues cruising not fai distant from Port Arthur. Eight weeks from the opening o.' the war sees Japan without any real fighting, apparently in complete pos session of Corea and the first stage ol the campaign ended. Japanese Fleet Divided. The London Daily Telegraph's Seoul correspondent says that he loam; from a Japanese sailor who par ticlpated in the attacks on Port Ar thiir that the Japanese fleet ia divided Into seven squadrons. Four of these are watching Port Arthur, the fifth pa trols the Corean coast and the sixth and seventh cruise between Vladivos tok and North Japen. ItusHia Is building 10 sub-marlnu boats at the naval mechanical works and Crichton works, Finland. The re ports that they will be sent In sections to Port Arthur and Vladivostok are confirmed. General Kuropatkin's announce-ment that the Japanese have reached W'ljii, Corea, and the right bank of the Yalu river, creates no surprise in well-informed circles, where it Is thoroughly understood that the Russians have no intention of making a stand in force east of the river. Russians Buried Japanese Officer. . It Is s.i!d at Toklo that the body of a Japanese officer found and burled at Port Arthur is unquestionably that of Commander Takaso Htrose, who lost his life in the engagement on March 27 when Vice Admiral Togo nmde his second attempt to bottle up the port. The description of the uniform tallies with that worn by the officers of Hi rose's rank. The fact that the body has been missing is further confirma tory of this. Tho government deeply appreciates tho action of the Prussians in giving tho remains a military funeral, an1 officers of tho nnval staff have re quested the press to express their ap preciation of the Russian courtesy. Russia's Financial Strength. Regarding the emperor's declina tion to accept the village contribu tions towards the war, the Novesti of 5t. Petersburg says that anthorita tive confirmation Is thus given to the fact that. Russia has sufficient financial Btrength to carry on an expensive war which threatens to last for a long time. The paper adds that this is r.n other evidence of the faith which tho emperor has in the patriotism of his subjects and that It is proof of his wish for their welfare. Covering Landing of Troops. A correspondent of the London Times ot Wei Hei Wei cabling under Friday's date says: . "The result of a week's cruise leads me to believe ttiat the Japanese fleet is engaged in covering arrangements for a new landing of troona recently mobilized. A close blockade of Port Arthur Is not maintained, presumably because of information regarding the state of the channel. Certainly up to the present, no Japanese transports have entered the gulf of Pe Chi Li." To Operate cn Defensive. Tho St. Petersburg Vostoony Ves tlk's Harbin correspondent says every, thing' shows that on account of the unprepardeness It has been de cided to operate on the defensive. It is believed that the Japanese will nev er pass Mukden. Nearly 80,000,000 Population. The census bureau at Washington has just. Issued a bulletin which gives the estimated population of the United States for 1903, exclusive ol Alaska and the Insular possessions ol the United States, as 79,900,389. Other estimates are: New York, 3, 716,139; Chicago, 1,873,880; Buffalo, 5.81,403; Philadelphia, 1,307,710; St. Louis -has Just pass d and Boston has almost reached COC.000 mark; Balti more has 531,313; Cleveland, 411 950; Cincinnati, 332,934; San Francisco, 3"5,919; Pittsburg, 315.043; Detroit, Milwaukee and New Orleans have just passed 300,0110, and Washington In close to that figure. Considered by states, New York leads in population, with more than seven and a half million. The following are the estimates ot the population in 1903 of cities in New York given 25,000 and upwards: Al bany, 93,920; Auburn, 31,092; Bing hamlon, 41.039; Elmira, 37,100; Kings ton, 25,510; Newburgh, 25,501; Ro-!

In tho municipal election at Chi cago the Republicans elected 18 al dermen, the Democrats 10, and ono Independent Republican who repudi ated the "macPV" in tne sixth wanI' was chosen a XVhpr of the council.

The chief inlerea: in the election centered in the vote on proposed muni cipal ownership of t:v.i street railways. By a vote of 152.431 to 30.101 tho city voted to accept the Mueller act. pro viding that d ies construct, own, oper ate and lease street railways. On a proposition that the city should ar, once take over the street railways into Its control the vote stood 120,741 for and 50,893 ngainst. Page Murder My6tery. So extraordinary is tho murder ol Miss Mabel Pago at Weston, Mas3., that State's Attorney General Her bert Parker, making a move un precedented in the history of the com monwealth, took it upon himself to 1- -r.7-.- rs- i.m;t, i'ace. visit the scene of the crime, to make a closo scrutiny of the premises an ! to examine personally the members ol the Tage household. The attorney general declined to dis cuss Ills investigation. Following the departure of the sttte officers, the dep uties with rakes Fcraped over the ground and raked tho brook near tho Page house in in effort to find tho knife with which Miss Pago was tabbed. The po'ice worked unceasingly In an endeavor to strengthen the web of circumstantial evidence around Chas I.. Tucker, the Auburndale youth ar rested at his home, and who wast arraigned In the Wnltham district court, charged wlt.h the murder of Miss Mabel Page a! Weston on March 31st. It was learned that tho police have possession of a knife as well as of ti knife sheath. The sheath is said to have been found in the flnh cart driv en by Arthur Woodward, with whom Tucker rode on the afternoon of the murder. The police will not tay whoro the knife was found. The knifo is un derstood to be of the variety used by hunters, having a horn handle and a narrow blade about six inches in length. The knife will be submitted to an expert chemist for a micro? copic examination. Retail Distribution Increased. Bradstreet's summary of the state of trade says: Events of the week have, for the most part, been favorable Weather conditions generally have been spring like, excej)! in some portions of lha Northwest. This has increased retail distribu tion in the cities, while in the country districts favorable weather lias helped farmers in their planting preparations and improved the condition of winter wheat. Collections as yet do not reflect much, if any. Improvement. The Iron trade maintains an ap pearance of cheerful activity. Pi iron prices show no particular change, and steel billet prices have been re affirmed despite efforts to advance the same. Cotton goods demand, ns for some time past. Is backward, and this is re flected in curtailment of print, cloth mills at Fall River and of spinning and weaving machinery at other cen ters. Business failures for tho week end ing with April 7 number 201. against 212 last week and 153 in 1903. Philippine Shipping Bill. The house of representatives passed a large number of bill's, includ ing the Philippine shipping bill and the bill appropriating $175,000 in aid of the Lewis and Clark centennial ex position to be held in Portland, Ore., In 1905.

Judge Stevens severely criticised tha couise on Governor Peabody and the military authorities, saying they ap peared to bo in Insurrection against the court. Genera) Bell, through Assistant Dis trict Attorney David Howe of Tellur ide, excused his failure to produce Mr. Moyer on the ground that he deemed it unsafe to bring Moyer to Ouray or to reduce tho military force in San Mi guel county by so doing, and that the governor had ordered him to disre gard the writ. Judge Stevens said: "A very grave question is presented as to whether It is the striking miners or the governor of Colorado n.1.1 the National Guard that are engaged in insurrection and rebellion against the laws of the state. "If thore is to be a reign of military despotism in this state and civil au thority is to have no jurisdiction, the Inter might as well go out of busl nesi."

Moyer he dis charged from custody, Issued an orde; of attachment against General Bell and Captain Wells, assessed a flue of ?50D against each and expressed regret that the governor wa3 not before the court, as he held him equally guilty with Gen eral Bell and Captain Wells.

Tho mys tery surrounding the murder of John Thomas, the aged night watchman at the Houston club of the University cl Pennsylvania Sunday evening was cleared up by the arrest and confes sion of Lawrence Gibson, alias John Oakley, who was for a number of years employed as a utility man at Houston hall.
