Tokio (Japan), March 29. The Em
peror of Japan has today declared an
St. Petersburg (Russia), March
29. Advices received herefrom Tokio
say that the decision of the Emperor
of Japan to declare an unconditional
armistice was greatly due to the ex
treme indignation aroused by the at
tack on Li Hung Chang.
Washington, D. C, March 29. The
news that an unconditional armistice
has heeu declared by the Emperor of
the Japanese was confirmed at the
Japanese legation, where it was stated
that a cablegram to this effect had
beeu received from the home Govern
ment. Jn thus suspending al! opera
tions in the field with their army
flushed with victory almost at the
gates of Peki&g, the Government has
een doubtless influenced entirely by
the wholly unjustifiable attempt to
assassinate the peace envoy of His
Imperial Majesty of China.
Shimonoseki (Japan), March 31.
Koyama Rokuuseki, the young Japan
ese who attempted to assassinate Li
Hung Chang, has been sentenced to
penal servitude for life.
Hongkong (China), March 30. The
Japanese are norabarding Taiwan, the
capital town of Formosa.
Tokio (Japan), March 29 It is re
reported that the conditions of peace
are that Chiua shall pay 400,000,000
yen indemnity and cede Formosa aud
Southern Mauchuria, Japan holding
guarantees pending the payment of
the indemnity and settlement of the
London, March 29. The British
Consul has advised that all foreigu
womeu aud children leave Formosa.
A number have already gone to Amoy
aud Hongkong. The blacks in South
eru Formosa are very insolent to the
forty whiles who compose the foreign
population on that part of the island.
GRESHAM TO RESIGN.
Likely leave the Cabinet Before the
First of July.
Washington, April 1. Another
vacancy in ihe cabinet, it is rumored,
may occur within the next few weeks.
Secretary Gresbam is the official who
The report comes from several of his
close friends, to whom, it is said, he
has more than once expressed his
de-ire to return to the practice of law,
if not to the bench.
Judge Gresham, it is stated, has not
found the state department as con
genial to bis tastes as be had expected,
and Mrs. Gresham has uot beeu alto
gether pleased with the breaking up
of the home ties nude necessary by
her removal to Washington. Both
the Secretary and his wife have told
intimate acquaintances of their mu
tual desire to return to Illinois.
The ruuaorof Greham't retirement,
however, is not based alone on tnese
exchanges of confidence, out on more
direct statements regarding his inten
tions iu the near future. Judge Gres
ham's relations with the president
have been, to far as known, of the
pleaautest. No member of the cabi
net lias been more tru-ted by Cleve
land, so that his desire for retirement
from office iu the near future cannot
be ascribed to any friction with his
It is hinted, however, that Judge
Gret-ham lias felt somewhat aggrieved
over i he di.-inclination of the Cabinet
to support him in a foreign policy
which be believes would win for him
great popularity aud possibly make
him a favoiite for the Presidency. It
may be that extinguished hopes iu
this direction have had a strong influ
ence on him iu reach in is the coudu
sion that he would pref r to retire.
This idea is scouted by bis frieuds,
who assert that Judge Gresham has
not been moved by any such consid
erations. They say he has simply
consulted his wife's pleasure and his
own tastes iu concluding to leave
Washington within a short time.
The rumor is that Judge Gresham
will retire from the Cabinet before
Ju'y 1st. No date has been absolute
ly fixed. As friends of the Judge aud
Mrs. Gresham are discussing the
Secretary's probable withdrawal, it is
not unlikely that the subject has
been discussed with the President and
Cabinet. Mr. Cleveland would no
doubt use every influence to persuade
Judge Gresham to remain until the
close of the Administration.
THE HAWAIIAN EXILES.
Ha it Against ihe Canadian Steamship
Company to be Pushed.
Vancouver, (B. C ), March 27.
In speaking of the case biought by
the Hawaiian exiles, Mueller, Cran
stouu and Job stone, against the
Canadian-Australian Steamship Com
pany, E P. Davis, counsel for the
company, said yesterday regnrding the
attitude of the Hawaiian Government
in the case:
"They are anxious to have the ques
tion settled as to ttie right to deport
dangerous characters from the Islands
when ttie latter are, as during the late
crisis, uutier martial law. They claim
such a right in the preseut instance
and are anxious to have that ruht es
tablished by a judicial decision in
"Mr. Kiuuey came here with au
thority to retain special counsel to
represent them, but Upon examination
decided to leave the matter as it was,
con-equently I am not retained by the
Hawaiian Government at all, but am
looking after the interests of the pres
ent defendants. I am raising the
point they wished to see raised and
settled, which comes to the same
' The case," he added, "could not
possibly come up for trial until the
fall, since a commission would have
to be issued to take eviuence in nouo

Ac olympia to Relieve the Philadel
phia at Honolulu.
Washington, March 29. Future
mnvromon nf shins are uuder con-
tmnlation in the Navy Department.
within a fow months a number of
vessels will go out of eommi-sion and
anmp of the new vessels will receive
th men doi nr dutv on the older ships.
One of the important changes to be
made is the sending of the Olympia
fmm Mre Island to Honolulu to re
lieve the Philadelphia. The Philadel
phia will be docked and scraped at
Mare Island, and will then go to the
Asiatic squadron, relieving the flag
Tt is exnected that within a short
time the Chit-ago. now at New York,
will go out of commission, and her
men will be transfered to the Ampbi-
trite, now at the Norfolk navy yard.
Views of Senator Frye.
Bridgeport, Conn., March i
a Republican bauqnet last
Senator Frye said : "Give us Repub
lican rule for a single decade and we
will show tbe people tne beneficence
of Republican legislation. Everyone
who wants work shall have it and at
the wages of tbe crowning year of
Republican role 1892. We will
restore the merchant marine to its
place and increase our white, strong
ly armed squadrons so that they will
command the respect of all nations.
We will show the people a foreign
policy that is American in every fiber
and hoist the American flag on what
ever island we think best, and no
hand shall ever pull it down."
What Does it Mean ?
Washington, March 28. A cable
message was sent to Admiral Meade
at Kingston today, ordering him to
dispatch two war vessels of his fleet
to tbe vicinity of Grey town and Blue
fields, Nicaragua. The State Depart
ment officials will not discuss this
sudden backing up of the squadron
in the Carribean, and give out the
impression that the order is of no
special significance, but the move
ment is looked upon in an entirely
different light by naval officials.
Ambition of Cleveland
Washington, April 2 An evening
paper says that President Cleveland
is ambitions either to succeed him
self or name the Democratic candi
date for President in 1896, and that
with this end in view he will try to
pacify ultra Bilverites to some extent
by pretense of bimetallism.

blowing, it was rather difficult for
the captains to bear the commands.
