correspondent in Berlin says: "When
Pekin shall be seriously threatened
the Chinese Emperor will retire to
Palgan in Mongolia. When Pekin
shall be captured Prince Kung will be
authorized to conclude peace. Japan
has altered her terms and declines to
inform the powers yet of her views,
but suggests that the foreign diplo
matists ascertain what China is will
ing to pay and what territory she will
cede."
The Central News correspondent in
Shanghai says that after the surrender
of the last forts and the Chinese fleet
at Wei-Hai-Wei, Admiral Ting and
the Chinese General committed sui

THE HAWAIIAN EXILES.
Suit for $50,000 Damages Com
menced Against the Warrimoo.
The following is taken from a
late number of the Vancouver
Xews-Advertiser :
Messrs. Muller, Cranston and
Johnstone, the Hawaiian exiles,
are now quartered at the Oriental
Hotel, Col. Peterson, the genial
United States Consul, having made
arrangements to provide for their
immediate wants.
Messrs. Muller and Cranston
were yesterday shown the dispatch
from Washington published in yes
terday's News-Advertiser contain
ing an official announcement from
Minister of Foreign Affairs Hatch,
to Minister Thurston as to their
alleged crime. When asked about
it, both again denied having any
knowledge of the alleged dynamite
plot and said that it was the first
official announcement they had
had of the charges against them.
They, however, said that on the
advice of their counsel they would
prefer not to say anything further
at present.
Yesterday Messrs. Wilson fc
Campbell on behalf of the exiles,
issued three writs against the
Canadian - Australian S. S. Co.
claiming $50,000 damajges. Messrs.
Davis, Marshall, Macneill & Ab
bott have been retained by the
steamship company. The case will
be tried in the usual manner, and
as the company have complied
with the necessary legal formali
ties, the vessel will not be libelled.
The "exiles" have requested the
News-Advertiser to publish the fol
lowing letter :
Sm: In your account of our forci
ble deportation from Honolulu, a
slight misstatement is made in say
ing "while their cells were very dirty
and swarmed with mosquitos and
other insects." It is true mosquitos
occupied the same apartments as our
selves, but the cells were kept very
clean.
We do not wish to make the slight
est assertion that is not absolutely
true, and do not intend to be unjust
even to the men who so cruelly treat
ed us, and ask you to make this cor
rection. Yours truly,
Jas. B. Johnstone,
Alfred Muixer,
J. Cranston.

on a hunting expedition. Simultane
ous interviews with the captain and
steward resulted In marked divarg-.
ence in statements. The steward said
they had been experiencing good
weather throughout the voyage. Both
have the outlines of the hunting story
by heart, but differed in respect to de
tails, hedging when questioned as to
the amount of salt on board and the
supply of provisions. Hawaiian Con

a straight case can be made out against
