IMMENSE GOLD FIELDS
Arc Said to Have Been Discovered in China
Purchasing Machinery for Them
CHICAGO H A conference of great im
portance was held today between two
Chinese dignitaries and representatives of
the big mining machinery firm of Frazer
Sc Chalmers of this city The result was
that negotiations were formally entered into
looking to the construction of a 300stamp
mill in the mountains of China The mag
nitude of the deal may be understood when
it is stated that the mill when set up com
plete will cost nearly four millions
plet wi milons this
including transportation erection skilled
labor etc The Chinese informed them
there had been discovered the richest and
most extensive gold bearing lead in the
world The Chinese have known for many
year that in the mountains of Sai Shan
in the province of Shan Tung there had
been gold but not until a year ago did they
reaize the extent of it when some one
who had worked in the mines
and mills of California began pros
pecting and discovered a bonanza
They erected a rude mill and from the out
set the product of gold was enormous
They claim that not a ton of ore taken out
has yielded less than seven hundred dol
lars while much of it has run into the thou
sands The matter was kept quiet and a
big stock company formed that secured
control of about eighty miles of land in the

ance Explanation and a Liquor Crusade
An International Copyright Law
BERLIN Feb HThe council of state
summoned in pursuance of the imperial re
script opened today The Emperor in his
opening address said The council
should endeavor t frame a scheme
for the protection of working
men from the arbitrary systems and oper
ations of employers by which gross ad
vantage is taken of their needs and their
inability to help themselves by any other
means than the desperate remedy of
strikes It should also attempt to
protect women and children against I
protracted hours of labor At
the same time due regard
should be given as to how far German in
dustry will bear the increase of burdens
thus placed on the cost of production with
out jeopardy to Germanys position as a
competitor in the markets of the world
Not less important for assuring re
lations between masters and men are the
forms of guarantees to be offered the work
ingmen to secure them the right to express
through representatives enjoying their con
fidence their own statement of their inter
ests in any difference The closest techni
cal study should be given to making state
directed industries paternal and examples
of the effective solitude for the working
man There is a wide field of fruitful ac

the law shall ordain
The committees or sections into which
the council is divided are pledged to abso

Cheering in the Commons
LONDON Feb HAmid the cheers of
the opposition la the commons today
ParadE asked what action the government
proposed to take upon the report of tho
commission Smith government leader
replied that the ministers had not had time
to decide upon a course The debate upon
the amendment was resumed Parnell
moved an amendment asking the repeal of
the coercion act He attacked the pettiness
of tie persecutions which the government
daily inflicted upon many persons
and the coercive act under Balfour
Almost every act of Balfour Par
nell said appeared directly toward
driving the people of Ireland to crime The
league of today Parnell declared differed
widely from the Land league of 1SSO and
Balfour could not plead as an excuse that
crime was being revived On the contrary
the people were quiescent in the expecta
tion of soon obtaining their rights The
action of the government tended to its own
defeat and could not succeed in turning the
tidotof aspirations of the Irish people
Webster attorneygeneral charged Par
nell with making accusations against Bal
four without producing evidence to support
his allegations

JACKSON ESTIMATED
Asa Pugilist by the Champion
John L Sullivan
A FATAL SPARRING EXHIBITION
I
A Scheme to Kidnap ExSenator TfiborThe
Conspiracy Against Old Hutch Benson
the Forger Convicted
Special to TH HERALD Examiner Dispatch
NEW YORK Feb 14I have just inter
viewed John L Sullivan The big un is
notover fond of talking to newspaper men
It is true the New York dailies abound in
alleged interviews with the great heavy
weight but these the Examiner correspond
ent has discovered are usually inspired
from the box office so to speak John Ls
management Last night the fighter un
bosomed himself very freely and his re
marks have the merit exceptional in his
case of authenticity and point The Ex
aminer being anxious to obtain an expert
opinion from the champion upon the merits
of Peter Jackson as a boxer and fighter I
especially directed Sullivans attention to
these points A great many men here who
know more or less of pugilism have looked
Peter pretty thoroughly over since he re
turned from England and some of the
opinions which have been
expressed might
not please the Australians certainly not
Californians who take a just pride in the
dusky fighters pluck and modesty But
New York is essentially a Sullivan city
and a great many of these unfavorable
caiticisms are owing t prejudice in favor
of the champion Curiously enough John
L Sullivan himself does not entirely spare
his views on his friends He has formed
an opinion of Peter Jackson which when
it is remembered that the big fellow does
not as a rule tnrow around compliments
ments freely and that indeed he is some
times very hard on men he has defeated or
expects to defeat must be considered as
very favorable to the California Athletic
Athetic
clubs pet
What do I think of Peter Jackson 1
said the hero of Richburg eyeing the Ex
aminer mancsteadily Well Ive got an
opinion but I dont know whether you
people would like it
Mr Sullivan was assured that what the
Examiner wanted was any opinion really
his own
Well I will tell you lust what I think of
the fellow When people first began talk
lag about him I did not pay much attention
to him I did not give him much credit for
licking either Godfrey or McAuliffe I
read nil the rnnnrfs of
al his fifrhlintr Tem
Smith There isnt much doubt in my
mind that hed have made a holy show of
that sneaking cur i he had not fouled the
black man purposely and I dont give
Jackson much credit for beating Smith be
cause Smith never was much of a fighter
But Ive seen the fellow put on fghter my
self continued Mr Sullivan significantly
and when I see a man fight with my own
eyes I can generally size him up See
The Examiner correspondent assured the
champion slugger that he did see
The time I anu alluding to was when
Jackson sparred in Boston with Ashton
The made a very bad setto according t
nfyvidea buthat is Jacksons fault for
Ashtofi was altogether too slow for him
You see the public are not in it when it
comes to judging these oouts it is not
often that a boxing exhibition amounts to
anything because i is the greatest luck in
the world when two men are evenly
matched I had rather see two poor fight
ers who are evenly matched than the best
man in the world fighting with one who
i int quite suited to him Then theres luck
in the rounds They wont come just to
suit people All the good licks may come
at first and then towards the end the whole
thing peter out That is said Mr Sulli
Sul
van with a grin Cif the thing is on the deal
secure Usually we put a little style in the
fighting so as to make it real interesting
Then you think Mr Sullivan that you
die not have a fair opportunity at Boston
fjudginsr Mr Jacksons abilityl
lf iont say that neither What I say is
t I great many fellows that saw him
box dont know how he is going to fight
going fght
From what I saw of him I thinK he is the
quickest man in the ring I ever saw I
never saw quite as much real science
backed up by solid good sense I mean good
tense from the fighting point of view I
thought too he might have a good head
good
Yes he must have a good head but I dont
know about that You will have to wait
and see
I gathered from further conversation
with the fighter that a good head with him
was a term akin to genius which accord
ing to the champion was an important fac
tor in tho ring
But Ill tell you what after all is mor
important stillit is hard hitting Jackson
hit hard there is the whole point I think
he can box as well as I can in a general
way perhaps a shade better but can he hit
like a pile driver Thats the business
and thats what Id like to know it I wore
betting on him A great fighter is like WlC a
big gunif he gets one good shot in ii
doesnt matter how much popping tha
ocBer fellow does
With this somewhat mixed figure the in
terview concluded with an assurance 01
assurnce
the part of Kilrains victor that he wa 01
looking after his
king general health very very
singularly
John L weighs three pounds less than
when he entered the ring iu Richburg last
July He has been taking Turkish bath
very frequently of late and this has got a
deal to do with reducing his weight Every
morning he rides in Central
park on n
spirited horse After lunch he takes I a
long walk and by dinner time he has I a
ferocious appetite In the evening he
takes in the theatre and has become quite
a critic after his own fashion in the dra
matic line This is Sullivans modeof liv
lv
Ing and he appears to enjoy himself thor
oughly Nothing disturbs him hardly and
as T DeWolf Hopper says Il is dollar
to red apples that he would rather be John
L Sullivan than the Czar of Russia

WASHINGTON Feb 14Speeial tsle =
gram to THE HERALD Delegate Dubois

Montana ars very angry tonight They
are not saying much but they arc doing sr
great deal of thinking The cause of this
anger is due to the cavalier and inconsid
erate treatment they received today from
Secretary Blaine The two gentlemen
called at the state department this morning
to see the secretary regarding the long de
layed appointment of Rounceville Wild
man > of Boise City to a place in the con
sular service They were told that Mr
Blaine was at home and would not
probably visit the department dur
lag the day Out they went in
the driving rain and wended their way
through the mud and slush to Mr Elaines
residence in Lafayette square Their ring
at the bell was answered by an impudent
colored man servant who curtly informed
the two westerners that Mr Blaine would
not see them and that they must return to
the department and await the great mans
pleasure Back they went again but in no
genial frame of mind Soon after their ar
rival TVTV Rlmno Tint in
in on nnnonT arii V
tneir troubles were not ended for not
withstanding they cooled their heels three
hours in the anteroom Mr Blaine did not
choose to see them and they afclast left for
the capitol feeling they had been shabbily
treated
It may bo said in passing that the recep
finn or rather nonreception accorded to
these gentlemen is similar to that which
most callars at the state department are
receiving at ME Blames hands There
are few men in public life who do not bit
terly complain of Air Elaines exclusive
ness and his contemptuous disregard of the
peoples feelings whose business takes
them to the state department What I am
saying is no new thing it has existed al
most from the first of Mr Blames induc
tion into office He has denied himself to
everybody except his intimate friends as
if the public gaze and public touch were
contamination During the time of the
late Walker Blaine who was by the way
a charming and in every way agreeable man
the secretarys brusqueness and exclusive
ness were considerably neutralized by the
formers tact and genial hospitality but
since Walkers death there is no one about
the department to fill his place and as the
secretary insists in keeping to himself the
officeseekers and their congressional
backers have no one to whom they can
personally state their claims
Mr Wildman I might say in conclusion
will doubtless receive the appointment
noswithstanding Messrs Dubois and Car
ter declare that they will not darken the
door of tho stats department again The sec
retary is personally very kindly disposed to
Mr Wildman and the probability is that
before many dayshe will be sent to a pleas
ant post in the foreign service either to
India or continental Europe
