CHINA NEGOTIATING FOR MOKE
Brazilian Crnlaera Wllh Dynamite
Guns for tha Purpose
of a It iii IV.
New York, Dec. 20.—A Chinese agent
ia in Washington negotiating with
Bailor Mendonca, minister ior Brazil, for
tha purchase of tbe Nictheroy and the
Andria. These vessels were fitted ont
in New York under Mendonca's super
vision to aid the Brazilian government
put down Hello's insurgent navy. Peace
now reigns in Brazil and the ships era
lying idle at Rio or in some harbor to
the south, and it is considered that
President Moraes wonld be glad to dis
pose of them, bis present naval force be
ing sufficient without this emergency
squadron for a year or two.
An officer of the Nictheroy has been
approached by the Chinese agent and
asked to name tbe terms under which
be would navigate the vessel to Wei-
Hai-Wel and serve three months there
after in the war against the Japanese.
He demanded $3000 for the former and
15000 for tbe latter service. The pur
chase of either or both vessels would de
pend upon the enlistment of several
offioers and part of tbeir crews. This
is why the Chinese agent treats with
Jdendonca instead of with the authorities
The Zalinsky dynamite gun on the
Nictheroy is the main reason why China
wants the vessel. It served its purpose
In tbe Brazilian war by inspiring terror
among tha Insurgents rather than by
aay real service. The Chinese agent
thinks it will serve the same purpose
against the Japanese. Indeed, Men
donca's enemies are denouncing him for
bia expensive and useless purchases,
•nd it would strengthen his ponition if
he oonld make a good trade with China.
The purchase money would go to pay
for tbe new Brazilian navy now building
at the Armstrongs.
"If the Nictheroy ia sold," said a
gentleman familiar with the negotia
tions, "the Zalinsky gun goes with it.
That gun ought to have a ehanoe to
prove its merits. But (regretfully) the
war will be over before the Chinese can
nae it. The vessel will be commanded
and manned by Americans if tbe deal
goes through, and then il wonld see
some real fighting."
' A CAMERA DETECTIVE.
Used In tbs Antl-Balaan Craaada la
New York, Deo. 20.—A mace -meeting
waa held in the Hansen Place Baptist
church last night, at the oall of the
League for the Enforcement of Law in
Brooklyn, and tha orowd whioh filled
the pews were treated to a surprise.
The agents of the society had pressed
the band camera into service, and there
were shown npon a mighty screen with
tbe aid of the etereopticon aome big re
productions of snap shots taken laat
Sunday. The exhibition was given by
Da Qulnoy Tally. 1 7
The greater part of the views were
saloon exteriors, showing uniformed
polioemen standing idle in front of tbe
doors while children witn beer cans
were entering by the side doors or com
ing out with froth-crowned pitchers.
In more than one instance, the lecturer
explained, the unerring camera had
taken the policeman's number. The
figures on the officer's shields were in
distinct on the screen, but it is Baid that
the numbers have been a matter of re
cord for use later.
The utter unconsciousness of the fig
ures in the pictures to tbe presence of a
oamera fiend was one of the features of
SWAMP LAND KKCbAMATION,
Raport or Commissioner Koso and n Reo
San Fraiscisco, Dec. 20. —Commis-
sioner of Pnblic Works Kose has made a
report on the reclamation of the swamp
lands in the interior of the state, orig
inally comprising 1,700,000 acres. For
many years efforts to reclaim these
lands have been made, the attempts at
draining costing a total of $1,700,000
and the projected reclamation proving a
practical failure. This is ascribed to
lack of system aud intelligently applied
The report recommends tbe adoption
of a complete syßtem formulated by tbe
consulting engineers, Marson and Gran
sky, who have demonstrated tbat the
Sacramento and its tributaries present
a vastly greater volume, of flood waters
than the channel can be made to carry.
Tbe engineers' plans provide for ade
quate flood channels by means of by
pass canals lying between master dykes,
passing down aud through the basins.
The flood waters over and above tbe
oapaoity of the river are permitted to
escape from tbe channel over wide weirs
constructed of concrete and raised to the
flood level of tho danger line.
Tbe report says that tbe debris from
past hydraulic mining operations will be
a cause of trouble for years as it works
its way down to the basin. The Yuba,
Bear and the American can carry nearly
all the dickens and tbey empty into the
Saoramento river not far apart.
Koss suggests that the lower course of
the Bear and the Yuba might be de
flected at moderate cost into tbe Ameri
can river basin whioh comprises 110
square milea and is large enough to im
pound past and future slickens, should
hydraulic mining be put on a legal basis

HORSE TAIL SOUP.
Novel Banquet Glvan by n Veterinary
New York, Deo. 20.—A banquet of
horseflesh was given by Veterinary Sur
geon James D. Hopkins of Newark last
evening. The kitchen was given over
to the chef and his assistants, the din
ing room and parlors to tho guests, the
ladies of tbe doctor's family having been
banished to tbe upper regions. The
waiters kept up constant communication
between the table and tbe kitchen and
the doctor kept his place at tbe head of
the table throughout tbe evening, greet
ing each new comer and urging him to
eat, or repeating tbe historw of the
horse they were eating and telling how
wholesome hoisefiesh is, and how he ex
pects it to take its place in the markets
of the country in a short time to he sold
on its merits.
The most practical argument for the
introduction of horse meat, however,
was the manner in which it was served
upon this occasion, and it seemed cer
tain that the rich as well as the poor
would be convinced of ita merits if they
could get it cooked ac Dr. Hopkins bad
it prepared last night. Tbere was horse
tail soup, soup riohly flavored and nour
ishing; boiled saddle of horse with
horse radish sauce, and broiled tender
loin of horse, while the piece de resist
ance was a rib roast. There was a hot
roast and plenty of broiled ateaks and
breaded cutlets, with all imaginable
soups and relishes and a variety of vege
tables. There was a great deal of joou
lar conversation at the table, and all
sorts of horse talk, but not the slightest
indication of qualmishness, Everybody
want there with the intention of eating
what the doctor bad prepared, and the
first taste of palateable soup enconraged
all to go on with the courses.
