Subscriptions to Japan* Heoond War Loss Honrly Doubla the Amount Asked For. Tokio, Dec. 29, 1894, via San Francisco, Jan IS.—The Jn.prines3 government has publicly announced that the emperor of China has sig nified nil desire to terminate the war, and has appointed one of the members of the Tsung-Li- Yamen of the highest official rank, named Chang Ying Hwan, to proceed to Japan and arrange terms of peace. The Japanese were by BO means sure that China was acting in good faith, and they still have doubts as to her sin cerity. In any caso they are far from being confident that the first negotiations will pro gress satisfactorily. It may even be said that they more than anticipate the possibility of a failure to agree. It was not with absolute unanimity that the Japanese authorities consented to icceive a suppliant for peace at this juncture. The cooler heads in the cabinet have for some time been favorable to a speedy suspension of hos tilities and Count Ito and Viscount Mutsu, who lead the ministry intellectual]y. would be ready to conclude a peace at once with Chang Yitsg Hawn on terms which, while honorable to then* own country, wonld not be considered Illiberal to the enemy. But the war party is represented to some extent in the administra tion and its influence is much too powerful to be disregarded or, for the present, held in control. Many of the military lenders look sjpon China's submissive proposals as n mere incident of the struggle, which will not be permitted to Impede the advance of the army, •t prevent the occupation of Pekin. The government means to act candidly and Straightforwardly. If the Chinese comrafs gtoner is authorized to treat on the basis Which the conquerors consider indispensable, a settlement maybe made without excessive delay, bnt the Japanese do not now think it probable that he will accede to their condt tlons or corae anywhere near them. Thit he will not do so ia the scarcely concealed hope of the military leaders, and with the uncertainty of the cabinet on the one hand and on the other, the determination of the army and navy and their powerful supporters that the fighting ahall go until a heavier chastisement shall have been inflicted, it would be premature to assume positively that all warlike operations are about to end. The Japanese parliament, after it organized en December 24th, listened to 'he reading of emperor's speech by Count Ito. On the 25th the replies of both houses were voted and an adjournment was taken over the holidays, to January 6 th. Btibrtcrlptioni to the second war loan are close upon 1,000.000,000 yen, nearly double the amount called for. Washington, Jan. 12.—Mr. Kurlno, the Jap anese minister, says he expects peace nego tiations between the plenipotenti aries of China and Japan will begin about the Ist of February. The Chinese pence commissioners left Fekin on the 7th Instant.

Extra trains were run to accommodate the large crowd, and lt was estimated that upwards of too persons as cended the great incline. The day was not sunny, bnt the air was soft and springlike, and the view was all that could be desired. The towns, groves, isUnds and distant r.dges formed a most pleasing land scape, and many of the visitors feasted their eyes upon lt for the first time. All the appointments of the occasion were admirable. For so Urge a crowd there wore no vexatious delays, the tab'.es were woll and promptly served, excellent music was dis coursed, ami everybody filled in the hours of tha day with entire satisfaction. Some extended their journey on saddle ani mals to the hlgheit summits, others walked out on the new grade to the wi d scenery in Los Flores oifiou, and abmt 200 shook hands with Dr. Bwtftat tho'obtervatory.

HUMOR IN A BUSINESS WHERE YOU WOULDN'T LOOK FOR IT and Mirthful Effect* Frod'treS WUI» fut« Pot and Brash—Devils and Angels Are incongruously Mixed TJp. ••Post Ko Bills" Goes. All trades have their droll aspeots, bat that of the billposter is one long vista of fun. He may become an artist comedian of the first order. It does not require much brain weight either. An old fenco is his only arena, and his post ers are his stock in trado. His fun is bnt momentary, bnt it is potent while it lasts. Ho accomplishes it by means of the combinations he is forced to make when he posts new hills o?er the old ones. Some of tho combina tions are very funny. Thus he is forced to become a mirth producer whether he will or no, but there are some among tho men who got their livelihood in this manner who intentionally place the new bills where they will produce the oddest if bnt momentary offrcts. Tho reporter watched one of these knights of tho paste pot while he pro ceeded to cover np a rather flaming pio tnro of his satanio majesty with a bill which portrayed a naval officer in full uniform. The first section pnt on war. tbe officer's hoad. As it fitted exactly on to Mephisto's shoulders the effcot was bomical. The next section brought the naval man down to tho bottom of his coat. From a short distance it ap peared precisely as thongh he was mi nus his aether garments and stood bare legged in tho rising flames which en veloped him to his knees. The billposter chncklcd as ho surveyed his work at this point and asked the reporter what he thonght of it while ho rovcrcd tho officer's nakodness with a pair of trou sers and shoes. Tho billposter was qnito talkative in his way and spoke of tho droil side of his business. "Did it npver occur tc you," said ho as he picked and sorted eomn flaming oolorod' bills preparatory to pasting them on tho fence, "did ie never occur to yon what an odd and amusing business this is? Yon saw me pnt a uniform on the devil. Funny, wasn't it? Well, it wasn't a patch to tbo effects produced sometimes. These bills have to bo changed nearly every week, and tho postors get Sued np is tho queerest way. I've put angels' heads on devil 3 and devils' heads on :;i:£;sib. I've put » man with a dress cotit on whero a ballot girl was, ko that it look ed as though tho skirts branched ont below where tbo coat was. I loft it thoro for a moment while I paßted other bills, mid quite n crowd gathered around. A policeman came along, and I had to oov er it np. "Onco I had a Salvation Army poster to pnt up, and when I pasted the top portion of it over a bill advertising the play of 'Julius Ccesar' tho largo bluo bonnet of tho Salvation Army girl fit ted Cossar perfectly. It was too bod I had to spoil it." "You see that ballet girl on the fence o*"~- thcro? I havo «o* tr* nusta this big cat UYtji- ... ..ow hV.«6CiI Lao ~o it. '' He took a seotion of a bill with the head of a griuniug felino on it and plac ed it so that it fitted to the girl's shoul ders. A halo surrounded the cat's head, and tho whole affair had a puss in boots air abont it that reminded one of early fairy tales. Near by on ths fence was a heroic size negro minstrel, whose im mense teeth showed through lips which stretched form ear to ear. ' 'Now see how I will fix that fellow,'' said tbe jman of the brush as ho got ready a bill on which a large tiger .was represented balanced on a big blno ball. Tho tiger's position was on the npper part of the poster. The first section fix ed the animal's head on the fence, and with tbo noat tho body and feet were pasted up. Then appeared a curious ef fect. Whore the blue ball was to be pasted tho negro's face still grinned, but the tiger was now standing on top of the man's head. "That," said tbe billposter, "ia what I oall a real artistic effect It isn't often an artist can create a Samson in almost one stroke of his brush." FoUpwing his pasting of the tiger, the man proceeded to put up a bear. Ou the spot where it was to go an overfat baby held up a packago of a compound much advertised of late. The bear was built up from tho feet, whioh rested on a horizontal bar. Tbe hoar's neck and the baby's neck touched thosamepoint, and befoTO tho bear's head was pasted np there appeared a combination of human and brute anatomy which could hardly be equaled by a monstrosity in a dime museum. Bill posting has undergone a great ohango in recent yoars. It is not the haphazard business it onco was—that is, it is not allowable for men to go around pnsting bills wherever they oould find a fonoo. Moei of the big fences aro pre empted now by firms who pay rent for the privilege Tho old sign of "Post no bills" is moro potent than it was. Its infringe-. Mont now may mean a lawsuit. It used to bo very much disregarded. Thcro is reoord of a very literal man who was arrested for infringing a sign which read "post no bills under penalty." When tho judge askod him if ho had any excuse to offer, ho said he had not "posted under penalty. He had posted L'urtber alonj the fenco."—Now Yori World. The nrichtcst Unlit.

General Sebofield's Funny Break as to the Conduct of an Orchestra. How Conductor Sousa was taken to task by General Sohofield for his lack of discipline is told by the San Francisco Chronicle. The last eoho of one of Sousa's over tures was juijt dying away over the sand hills south of the fair grounds when General Sohofield stepped in front of the band and saluted the distinguished leader. Sousa returned the salute aud cent ono of his men to escort tho goneral np into tho band stand. "That music was beautiful—beauti ful," esolaimod tho geuoral as ho shook Sousa's hand warmly. "I am astonish ed, sir, that you get such results with bo little discipline." Thoro is nothing that Scusa prides himself more oa than being 0110 of the strictest of disciplinarians, and ho was naturally nettled at the general's criti cism. "Why, general, my men aro under perfect control. I'm snro they aro thor oughly drilled, nnd I can hardly believe that there is any lack of discipline. I havo never noticed it." "No, that's just it; youdon'tsoo it," persisted tho general. "I saw it, though.
