TOKIO, May 10, via Victoria, B. 0.,
May 21.—History liaa moved with extra
ordinary rapidity during the past two
weeks. The newly established peace has
been endangered and complications of far
greater magnitude than any produced by
tbe contest between China and Japan have
threatened to involve at least thrco Euro
pean powers in n desperate struggle for
supremacy in Eastern Asia. For several
days tbe attitude of Japan indicated n
resolution to set tho enormous odds
against her at detlance . Then, with sud
denness which most watchful observers
aro puzzled to explain,the spirit of resist
ance subsided ami complete submission
was promised to the harsh demands ol the
hostile league. In spite of the nvowed
willingnesi to yield to superior force, ani
unlocked for delay on the part of China
in meeting her obligations wakened
fears of a revived eonllict between the
Asian empires, but at the last moment
this calamity was averted and no further
apprehensions of war are entertained.
Much remains to be adjusted by diplo
matic agencies ami grave domestic dis
sentlons in Japan are more than possible,
but no resort to anus is anticipated in
any quarter.
Although most exciting events have
been in progress since the last week of
April, tiio people of Japan have to th s
day only a vague suspicion of their na
ture. Nothing has been made public
and so Tar as 1 am aware only one Amer
ican journalist, tne correspondent ut the
Associated Press and the New York
World, has been permitted to share the
secrets of the government. What lam
about to relate will, therefore, bo under
stood «s still unknown In this part of the
world except to official and diplomatic
circles. An outline of the facts has been
freely sent abroad but the general com
munity in Japan remains in utter ignor
As soon as the government was in
formed of the determination of Russia.
Germany and France to forbid tbe ac
quisition of territory by the Japanese on
the continent, a majority of the cabinet
ministers assembled at Kioto, to which
city tbe emperor had transferred hiscotirt
from Hiroshima, and measures were
takep to ascertain how far tbo menaces
of trie allies were seriously intended.
Communications originally handed to the
foreign otlice at Tokio were not couched
in peremptory language, but the manner
of their delivery plainly showed that if
the *'advice" they contained was not foi
lowed, compulsion would bo applied with
very little delay.
•Reports from the Japanese representa
tives at European uapistals brought uudi
tional proof that tbe powers were thor
oughly in earnest. The Russian and
French governments were tirm in their
declaration that Japan must renounce
Manchurian territory, while the tone
adopted by Germany was so 'intemperate
as to awaken the suspicion that she was
bent upon forcing a quarrel with or with
out regard to the pretext set forth. Japan
next endeavored to gain tbe co-operation
of Great Britain in opposing the league,
and there are grounds for believing that
if they had succeeded Oesporate resistance
would have been offered. But neither
Fmgland nor any oher gre.G power ouuld
be induced to take up arms on Japan's
behalf. Kindly messages were received
from Italy to an extent id giving assur
ance that if the United States would
offer mediation the southern European
kingdom would act in concert, but it soon
appeared that Japan only hail her own
resources to rely upon. When this wus
fully realized the government straightway
decided to avoid further contest and de
voted its energies to securing the best
terms of accommodation.
This decision, however, was not divul
ged to a.iy one but the ministers in im
mediate uttendunce upon tlie sovereign.
Those who remained in Tokio, as well
as all subordinate officials, were left in
doubt as lo the contemplated purpose,
and most of them rather gathered the
impression that a long and strong tussle
would take place before any sign of yield
ing would be given. Until the expira
tion of tbe armistice, or at least until the
ratifications of the treaty with China
were exchanged, Japan could not piop
erly be called upon to declare herself, and
in the meantime dexterous diplomacy
might tind many means of improving the
Japanese position or weakening that of
the confederates. Thai ilu ministers of
Kioto were busily engaged in mis work,
every one hoped and believed. In point
of fact,-however, nothing effective wus
done in this direction. It is understood
thatfalmost from the beginning tl lo em
peror's advisers were in Favor of submit
ting, with the solitary exception of Vis
count Matsu, who opposed his associates
with all the force be could command, but
whose distressing illness made it Im
passible for him to assert his customary
influence. Nut only the heads of most
of the civil departments, but the milit
ary ana naval leaders agreed as to the
futility of resistance and the necessity of
speedy surrender. Their reasons for'the
adoption of this remarkable course are
yet to be heard, but whatever the expla
nations btvit is certain that their coun
trymen will not forgive them for what
will bo denounced as a sacrifice of the
national honor when the truth is univer
sally known.
General Yamagata, head of the war
oflice,was dispatched in baste toJManohu
ria to notify the chiefs of the armies
what was in store and to gather their
opinions as to the expediency of yielding
withoutja struggle. His own mind was
made up before he started from Japan,
and he seems to have found little difficul
ty In converting most of tho corps com
manders to bis viens. Some ol them,
however, aro said to have objected stren
uously. General Nozu and Lieutenant
General Yuinaji went so far, according to
report, as to assert that if tho orders to
retire were sent thorn they would not

The expectation that the government
would maintain a courageous front a? long
as delinnce ,vas possible was strengthened
on May :id, when it was learned that Chi
na bad asked that the date for exchang
ing ratifications should be deferred ten
days and had been sharply refused. As
it could not be doubted that China acted
at the instigation of the adverse powers,
this emphatic response indicated any
thing but a disposition lo quail. So like
wise did the decree of the war depart
ment i,n the same ; duy, summoning all
tiie reserves in a body for active service
and ordoring the reinforcement of tbe
garrisons in Yczo. While it appeared in
credible that Japan could dream of join
ing issue with the thiee giants, it wns
hoped that a way bad been discovered to
ward off the impending danger until
definite announcement of their purpose
coulu no longer be avoided and that the
government would keep a bold counten
ance whilo a single chance of preserving
the conquests in Manchuria remained.
This illusion, after being cherished for
two days, was painfully dispelled. On
May 4th came the intelligence from
Kioto that the offer bad been made by
Count Itu to relinquish the whole of
Manchuria except tbe southern portion of
tho l.iao lung peninsula, on which Ta
len and Port Arthur are situated. This
was tbe first intimation of tbe ministry's
resolve to yield.
The end is accomplished, so far as can
now be judged, but Count Ito lias little
causo to congratulate himself. He can no
longer look to his countrymen for tho ic
ward which only a fortnight ago they
wore clamoring to bestow on him. He is
Well aware that from tbe momont his re
nunciation of the Manchurian province
is publicly known bis laborious services
to the state will bo disregarded, his in
dustry and ability scoffed at and his name
held up to execration and contempt.
Moderation and tolerance are not among
tho virtues of tho Japanese people when
their pride is wounded and their self es
teem brought low. The mystery of which
Count. Itu is the head, can never again
stand against the rage uf the community.
It is thought viossible that, foreseeing
bis fault. In l is already providing for a
new ad m inistrati in. Three days ago the
full cabinet nnd privy council were sum
moned to Kioto, witii the purpose, it. is
supposed, of recommencing a pre
arranged change of government to the
consideration ol tbo emperor. But. it is
most unlikely that any ministry in which
Count Itu has tho slightest concern wrll
be permitted to rule.
Thu nation will. be unitedly arrayed
against him and his associates. Count
Mutsn may be exempt from censure be
cause it was known that the precipitate
surrender was contrary to his wishes;
but he cmi hardly expect nor would he
probably desire to be separated from his
fellows in their downfall. Tiie successor
of Count Ito will certainly not be a man
uf his choosing, Common opinion among
officials is that Count Okuma will be the
intellectual, though probably the nomi
nal chief ot thejnext cabinet.
Okuma is unquestionably tho most vig
orous and energetic statesman in Japan,
but be lias many enemies and the pres
ent ministers would risk much to prevent
im from returning to otlice. Some of
them wbuld not hesitate to blacken his
reputation witli the emperor and thus in
terpose a formidable barrier to his eleva
tion. Rut high ability is needed nt this
crisis and Okuma so easily leads all rivals
intellectually with the solo exception of
Count Mtltsu, that the direction of the
government can hardly be kept from
him. I do not speak of this as a cer
tainty, but is a strong probability. With
in a very few weeks the question of future
leadership will bo definitely settled.

Opinions Regarding the Effect
Upon Revenue
No Probability or Need of an Extra
Senator Faulkner Considers the Government
Comfortably Well Off Without the
Income Tax Receipts
Associated Press Special Wire
WASHINGTON, May 21.—Tbo income
tux decision, its effect upon tho revenues
and tbe probabilities of an extra session
of congress to provide means for supply
ing the deficit, wero the chief subjects of
discussion in official and political circles
Senator Morgan of Alabama, one of the
ablest constitutional lawyers in the sen
ate, said today that the decision leaves
the taxing powers of the government in
a state of wreck. It will require a long
time for us to gather up the fragments.
Principles of taxation which were consid
ered well settled are torn up by this de
"How will the question come up in tne
"In connection with the question of re
funding the 175,000 already collected and
tho refunding of the cotton, whisky, beer
and tobacco taxes. All these taxes are as
much direct as the tax on personalty and
as unconstitutional according to yester
day's decision of the supreme court."
"What can congress do?"
"Of course." replied senator Morgan,
"congress will have to accept tho de
cision, but an amendment to the consti
tution is always possible."
Senator Faulkner of West Virginia said
he thought there was no danger of an ex
tra session and no earthly cbunce for one.
He added:
"Even with this loss of income there is
a comortable condition of the treasury. It
has today fOO.uOO.UuO surplus in addition
to the gold reserve and I am sure that
will be sufficient to lust until the meeting
of congress. The county will not suffer
so much from a laca oflegislation as it
would from a session of congress."
Members of the administration who are
undoubtedly fully acquainted with the
president's views and purposes, state un
hesitatingly that an extra session of con
gress is out of tho question. Nor is there
the least likelihood of another bond
issue. The treasury lias now v balance
of over $188,000,000 'which is available for
nil purposes, and this amount is more
likely to be increased than diminished
during the next three months.
It is argued that tbo approaching fruit
canning season is certain to make v
largely increased demand for sugar,
which, owing to tho sanill supply on
hand, must be Imported, The revenues
from this source are confidently expected
to reach several millions, and this, added
to the lurge amounts which will soon
begin to come in with renewed liquor
licenses, will largely nugment the reve
nues, even should the customs not meet
present expectations.
All licenses expire on June 110 th each
year, and judging from last year's reve
nues, tbe receipts this year from this
source will exceed $0.1)00,into, which must
be paid within the next forty days. In
tbo meantime the expenditures will be
kept down to the lowest point consistent
with good business principles.
Commissioner Miller of the internal
revenue bureau will dismiss at onco
every unnecessary person in connection
with tho income tax at the earliest possi
ble moment, and as soon as the returns
can be classified anil tabulated so that the
amount to be refunded to each person
who has paid bis tax, is made apparent,
the bureau will be closed.
If Britain Builds It It Will Be Essentially
NEW.YORK. May 21.—An Ottawa dis
patch says: "It may be taken as settled
fact that the Pacific cable will be. liko its

precluded from allowing any foreign
power to acuuire any portion of Hawaiian
territory. The United States having
given an adverse answer to Great Brit
ain's provision to secure Neckar or Bird
island as a cable station, the Fanning is
landfroute will be adopted. The link from
Victoria to Fanning island Is 800 miles
longer than to Neckar isiand, but this, it
appears, will not militate against the
effectiveness of tbe cable. All tenders for
construction ut tbe cable have been given
assurances to this effect. Fanning island
is v British possession, so that all land

The Northwest I.os Angeles Improve

last night at Bauttier hall. A very fair
number of members.were present. The
evening was devoted to a general discuss
ion of the proposed change in tho grade
of Bellevue avenue. K. Q, Keen of tho
city engineer's department was present
and explained by means of a profile the
proposed changes in the grade. D. F.

cost of the grading would bo, stated that
it would not bo over if.SOOO for the work
of grading and replacing the curbing, but
that tliis did nut include damages to

proposed change in the grade would not
benefit his property, he was willing for
the sake of other property owners that
the change be made asking, bjwevor.that
his property be placed in its relative
present condition. .Several persons
present said that Mr. Ford ought to
waive his right t:> damages in view of the
fact that this change of the grade is to be
made in order that the Pasadena and
Pacific Btieet Hallway company should
run their line out Bellevue avenue with
out asking any bonus.
Mr. Ford, however, said he could not
change his decision as to damages, but
was willing to pay his proportion of the
cost of regrading.
After appointing Mrs. Hi Giese and
Mrs. if. A. Watson additional members
of the committee to solicit signatures on
the petition asking for tho change ol
grade, the meeting adjourned to meet

Associated Press Special Wire,
BTJFFALO, May 21.—The peace con

session, and after an excursion to Niagara
Falls tomorrow the delegates will leave
Buffalo. The expectation that the two
warring factions would bo brought to

measure, been fulfilled. One result of the
peace convention has been to strengthen
the Jamestown faction and correspond-
ingly Weaken the other, as nearly all the
Atlantic City lodges represented in tho
conference have joined hands with the
Jamestown faction. With this as a
nucleus, the larger body hopes gradually
to gather in a majority of these opposing
lodges. The number of the Atlantic
City lodges which wero joined with the
Jamestown lodges is reckoned at about
The joining of forces was accomplished
and ratified by tho manner of electing
officers. Tho Jamestown grand lodge
elected officers, whose names were sub

othVors were then officially and formally
endorsed by tho conerence. All this was
not, however, accomplished - without op
position. Chairman Jewell offered as a
minority report that the conference recom
mend the subordinate lodges to acknowl
edge the authority of tho grand lodge
which met at Atlantic City in June. 1894.
This provoked a hot debate, but the
minority report was defeated, only four

My wife has beet) troubled fnryoara -with dry
crusts and scales on her head and eyebrows.
After scominj* to Ho dormant for years iv her
system, it broke out again in all its fury. Her
hair came net in big patches.her eyebrows all
fell on 7 , and slit, presented a pitiable condition.
Wo tried almost everything, but sho continued
to pet worse. Then wo tried one of our best
physicians, but all to no purpose. Finally sho
believed that the CUTICUSA REMEDIES would
euro her. After using nine boxes of Ci Tier ha,
about a dozen cakes of Cttkura Soap, and
four bottles of CoTIOTBA RBSOLVsnsT. ihe was
entirely cured. Her hair come on again! and
to-day sho has as ftne a head of black curly hair
and as smooth skin aa any lady inAllentown.

they ever were, bet scalp is treo from dandruff,
and her health is excellent.

Lawyer Biscailuz Succeeds in Getting
Again in the Toils
He Detruded His Clients With False Orders
Alleged to Come l'rom Judge
Van Dyke
Martin V. Bicailnz, tho attorney who
was javed [rem disgraco and a probable
trip to the penitentiary several months
ago because some ot his friends in the le
gal fraternity swore that he was insane
and had enough influence to get him com
mitted to Highlands, is again in trouble.
He is charged with forgery, and it is very
likely that more complaints against him
will follow.
Biscailuz, when he returned from the
insane asylum, had no money, and his
practice, which at one timo included
some very valuable estates, had gone to
the dogs, llie clients had principally
been Frenchmen and Basques who
looked upon him with great distrust be
cause of his questiomtble former trans
actions. Ho had obtained from many
people money on worthless checks and
others that were alleged to be forgeries.
Being without legitimate business he cast
around lor a way in which to raise money
in a fraudulent manner, and having de
vised a plan, immediately began to work
This plan consisted in going to parties
whom he knew to havo cases in court and
to present to them alleged orders from
the judge for sinull 4 snms. which were paid
without question. The transaction for
which ho was yesterday arrested will ex
plain his modus operandi. He wont to
l'aul Saubion, tho French butcher of
Commercial street, with a paper which
read as follows:
In tho matter„ol the estate of X. C. Tel
lier, deceased.
It appearing to the satisfaction of this
court from the affidavits of l'aul Saubion,
one of the creditors in the above matter,
and M. V. Biscailuz, his attorney, that
Mrs. I. Goytino, formerly N. 0, Jollier,
is about to depart to the republic of
France, Europe, soma time during tho
month of May of this year, and it further
appearing from said affidavit of M. V.
Biscailuz and l'aul Saubion that the facts
aie true, and that said Mrs. N. C. Tollier
is' departing out of said statu of Califor
nia with tho intention to defraud bor said
creditors, l'aul Saubion and J. K. Kenne
dy, in the above matter;
Now,therefore, it is hereby ordered, ad
judged and decreed tbe. said Mrs. N. C.
Tellier, now Mrs. J. P. Goytino. bo and
she is hereby refrained, restrained and
enjoined from in any manner transfer
ring, incumbering or disposing any of
the property declared to be owned by her
by this court.
It is further ordered that the claimants
herein pay to this court tho sum of if.'iiuiii
in addition to the costs heretofore paid,
and that an order of arrest be issued upon
affidavit and proper showing, should Mrs,
N. C. 'Goytino attempt to leave the state
of California.
Done in open court this 29th day of
April, 1886. WALTER VAN DYKE.
Saubion it Konnedy hud already paid
Biscailuz some |Bfi on other alleged orders
from tho superior court, and they became
very suspicious at this last document,
'i'hev instituted inquiries beforo paying
tho $30.00 and found out that this paper
as well as the others were forgeries.
Biscailuz was taken before Justice
Young yesterday afternoon, charged with
forgery and held for examination under
$i>UO oi'.il.
