THE POWERS WILL TAKE A HAND Europe mid tho United Status to Lny Dunn t!ie Law to China anil Japan London, Teb. 7. A dispatch to tho Times from Paris says that some of tho Russian envoys have received Instructions as to the attitude which Russia, England and France, and through Russia's Intervention the United States, Intend to take on the questions raised by the war between China and Japan. According- to the Times cor respondent It has been decided that the In tervention of these powers at the proper moment shall be absolutely dlslnterrupted. China will be asked. In her own Interests as well as In those of tho civilized world, to open her ports, seeing that the present system has led to China's powerlessness and ruin, Theipowers will wait until China, admits" 'Herself vanquished and sincerely negotiates for peace. It will then bo pointed out to Japan that Europe cannot allow her to annex an Inch of tho Chlneso main land. Rut the same Impossibility does not exist In regard to other anni'utlons, which will be open to discussion. There will be no In tervention concerning vessels arms nnd other booty, nor ns to the wai Indemnity. This question must be nettled between tin' combatants. No objection will be calsed ns to Jupan routining certain positions as pledges of pi) incut; but no commercial stipulations to the disadvantage of tho powers will be permitted. The whole world is to prollt by any opening of potts or lib erty to penetrate Into the Interior of China. Finally, the powets will Insist that the Chinese curiency in future Is to be on the European system, in older to facilitate the new foreign loan to which Chlu.i will be obliged to resort.

THE REASON CONGRESSMEN DIE Vuulta of thai Capitol llulldtng Killed With Hotting l'ublla Document IleirultkV DIhcuku llreeUars, Washington, Feb, 7. The Investigation of the management of the architect's office of tho cnpltol Is furnishing lotno surprising revelations to the committee on ventilation and acoustics, which Is attending to it. The prime movers In tho Inquiry nre Chairman Shell, of tho commlttoe, and Representative Walker, of Massachusetts. Every morning they make a tour of tho subterranean passages under tho cnpltol, accompanied by a btcnogrnphor, who re cords the questions which aro put to em ployes, and their answers, as well as the comments mado by 'Mr. Walker and other members, some of which will make de cidedly Bnlcy reading when the report la printed. It has been generally understood that tho sanitary condition of the capltol was not good, and It Is certain that tho atmosphere pumped Into tho houso la de ficient In oy gen, but all tho causes which ntfect tho health of members havo not be fore been realized. One of the most con spicuous factors In tainting tho air has been discovered to be thu storage of old public documents, which till the base ments. There are hundreds of tons of these books and papers printed at the gov ernment printing ofllce and nsslgned to members for circulation among their con stituents, but never used. They have bam accumulating for je.us, nnd, as Is now dis covered, jotting In the dampness which pervades the lower cellars of tho great building. Colonel Rleh.ird liilght. the seraronnt-at-arms of the senate, told tho committee that In some parts of the senate basements de caying pipers were plied four feet deep, while the board lloors under them are also rotting. So dense was thu odor from the piles that workmen could not stay there longer than half an hour without becom ing sick. Ono member of tlui houso testi fied that when n load of documents which had laid in stoiage for some months nnd which he sent for, was dumped In his of fice, the odor fiom them was so Intense that It compelled hint to le-ive.

The vapor from these baths fills the kitchen constantly, keeping It at such an Intense heat, Mr. Muriay says, that I lie employes are often 111. The restaurant keeper said, In I (ply to a question from Mr. Walker, that ho would not ent food himself which stood In tho kitchen thiee minutes after being ptep.ired.

BRITISH DESIGNS ON ALASKA, rug-land Making; Elaborate Surreys la That Region for Homo I'urpote The llnundary Dispute, Seattle, Wash., Feb. 7. Q. A. Carpenter, editor of tho Alaska News, Juneau, who has arrived hero, apouklng- of the boundary controversy with Canada, sayat "If the claim set up by the British Is correct, there Is a prospect that Juneau will come within the limits of the territory claimed by tho British under their Interpretation of the description of the boundary. This descrip tion says that in the absence of a mount ain range the boundary line (hall be within ten marine leagues of the coast line, "The American Idea Is that the line shall follow the meanderlnes of the bays and tnlsts. r!i?.hB 'aeaj?., from what I can learn from William Ogilvle. who has charge of the Canadian sun-eying party, and who was one of tho pioneer surveyors of tho Cana dian government In making a report on tho Yukon and its resources somo ten yeurs ago, that the Dominion government Id now anxious to find out the mineral wealth of the lukon valley. In order to construct a good wagon road or a nariow gaugo railway trom salt water on the coast to tho head waters of tho Yukon river. Last beptember Ogllvlo, with a surveying party f nlre Canadians, started from Juneau for the head of Taku inter, tn mnkn n nrrt- llmlnarv survey and n topographical report on the Taku route, for the construction of a ronil to tho head wateis of the Yukon tlver. "Among nil classes of people In Alaska It Is universally the opinion that If En gland succeeds in getting this strip of territory from the United States govern ment It will be a steal, pure and simple, nnd another victory for the aggressive pol icy pursued by the British." Mr Carpenter also says the American boundary survey parties were negligent In their work, not sending parties Into the In terior, but merely making observations villi ilold classes from the deck of their steamer, while tho Canadian surveyors scaled the high const ranges to the very Mimmlt of the mountains, in mnny cas.es sublectlng the men to Imminent danger to life ami limb, in order to secure exact dutn which would naturally make nnd mark a boundary line Mr. Carpenter snys the sending of Ogllvle's party In midwinter Into the mosf dangerous ptrt of Alaska to report on the Tnku route Is significant. Ogllvlo will return by the middle of Marc;, to make a hasty report to Ottawa, then re turn nnd finish the boundary survey, ANTI-OPTION RESOLUTIONS, Vest and Cockrell Present Their Instruc tions lErcclwd Prom tin Missouri House, Washington, Teb. 7. (Special.) Senators Cockrell nnd Vest placed before tho senate- the resolution of the Missouri houso of representatives favoring the passage of the antl-optlons bill. It appeared that each had been provided with a copy of the olllclnl action of that body on tho matter. It may be of Interest to add that some of the senators aro ery much opposed to the passngo of the bill, because It would Interfere with private business matters. It Is evident tho general atmosphere In and around the senate chamber will have to bo renovated before nn nntl-ontlons bill of tho kind can be passed. Sometimes, owing to pressure fiom tho people, thero Is some bunco business Indulged In In the senate, but no bill of the kind can ever pass for the reason that It would Interfere with personal financial nnd business mat ters at this end of tho line, c.Mti.isi.i; .sum, u.Mii:cini:n.

Washington, Feb. 7. (Special ) Secretary Morton settled tho pending controversy to day concerning the quarantine llnrs In Ok lahoma, The question has been before the department for homo weeks nnd has been discussed by the Oklahoma legislature, re sulting In a resolution being paused ask ing the secretary la run tho line south of the territory of Oklahoma, Inking all that Liiutitry out of the Infected district. The action desired by the people Invnlud nn Increase In value of cattle at the rate of tl to (. a hciid nnd hence it was a plain business matter. The secretary plac ed tho matter beforo Inspector Albert Dean, of Kansas City, and other Inspectors of the Southwest, and lifter getting their reports took Into consideration Hie reiuimm nd.t lions made by tho stncktnen ef Kansas City, Ho was urgul In this action by Dele- f:ate Fit mi, who bun been ncthelj wot li ng to throw tho wholo terrlloiy outside of the Infected district. Formerly Heaver county wai the only rnrt of Oklahoma outside tho Infected dls rlct. This order was mado b Secretary Rusk, nnd since that time no addltlounl notion has been takon In the matter. It was suggested at that tlmo by the olllcl.ils of tho department that as soon as the conditions lifetime settled and the terri torial government could call attention to the question and Join with the government authorities In changing tho Hue, making It more favorable to Oklahoma cattle Inter ests, another order might be made that would send the lino further south. While tho line established this morning may not meet tho demnuds of tho cattle interests In that country It will aid them to some extent nnd It tho people concerned IoOk after their own Interests In tho mut ter, they will greatly Imprnvo their chnuces to have another change of tho line mado In duo time. It was' stated by an olllclnl at the department to-day that there was no doubt but that all of Oklahoma could safe ly bo taken from tho Infected dlsttlct, but It would bo unwise to do that now, ow ing to tho danger of making a mlstnke and thus redound against the cattle Inler cstH of the whole country by being discov ered In foreign markets. Tho change of line takes over half of Oklahoma out of the Infected region. ThlB will bo nn Improvement over tho situation thnt found only Beavor county above the quarantine line. Tho lino commences nt tho northeast corner of Oklahoma and runs to the southwest corner, dividing the territory with a diagonal line nnd all north of that line Is tnken from the quarantine district. Tho lino as embraced in the order Is designated as follows: "Begin nt tho routheast corner of tlreer county, thence north following the north fork of Red river to tho south boundary of Roger Mills county, nnd Woahlta county to the southeast corner of Washita county: thenco north along the east boundnry or Wnshlta county, to the northeast corner of snld county, continuing In a northerly di rection along the east boundary of O coun ty to the southwest corner of Jtlalmi cnun ty; thence cost along the south boundary of B county to tho southeast corner of said county: thence north on east boundary of said county to the northwest corner of Canadian county: thence east along the north boundary of Canadian county to tho northeast corner of Canadian county: thence north nlong the cast boundary of Kingfisher county to the noitlie.vst corner of F county) thence along south boundaiv of O county to the southeast corner of O county: thence north olonft the east bound ary of O county: thence east along the south bound try of K county to the west line of Ponca Indian reservation: thence north to the northwest corner of said reservation: thence nlong the north bound ary of Ponca re.servatlonf to tho Arkansas river: thence north along the Arkansas river to the south boundnry of the state of Kansas." This order made to-day will Instantly In crease In value many thousand head of cattle In Oklahoma amounting to many hundreds of thousands .of dollars. hlle It Is not nil that had be.en nsked for. It Is of great valun to the. cattle Interests of the terrltoiy. and In the. event no trouble nrlses from this cbange.;Vf the line.
