China's Olive Branch Looked on
With Doubt.
Kttantime the War Goes Mer
rily On.
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. It is expected that John W. foster,
w* o is to assist the Chinese envoys in negotia
tions, will be on hand on February Ist

Mount Lowk, Jan. 12.—The chamber of com
merce excursion to Echo mountain today was
one ot the pleisantest gatherings ever seen

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

••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

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
Bill posting has undergone a great

Tho old sign of "Post no bills" is

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
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
"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.
Do ycu know that ns soon as yon tvn 1
your back on ono nidc cf your band to
shake your baton at tho other those fol
lows all quit phiyiug? Of course ye.
don't see it, for a3 scon as you to.::
around thoy begin nsain."
Tho fan iv this, at tho czpeuso of tho
general, lies, of tho 'act that
when a section cf Sousa's men beenmt
silent.Ji3 ho turned to tho other wo:
when tho ruusio ro required. But the
goneral looked upon this lapso ns hi
would upon tho suspension of a sectio!
