Vancouver, B. C., July 5, 1S5*4. —The : Empress of China, which arrived yesterday, 'bringsthe following foreign advices:— Korean airuirs occupy the greater part of the space in all the English speaking papers brought in by Che steamer Empress of China, which arrived yesterday. A writer in the Japan Herald on June —■ says:— “The cause of the agrarian insurrection in Korea, has been the frightful oppression of the peasantry by the official classes. It has alwavs been "the custom in the country to farm’out the highest magistracies to the highest biddors. who are then permitted to recoup themselves by squeezing the districts committed to their charge. In ordinary times this does not work so badly as might bo exiiected for an official has generally two or threo years in which to recoup himself, and is able to spread his extortions over a considerable period of time, but of late the necessities of the time, and the establishing of a costly army and uavy like those of Japan, have entailed great expense on tho Central Government, who, os a result, liavo been obliged to sell their officials at shorter intervals and at higher prices, and in conse minnoo ♦ V.sx ..ffissiattf If*1 Art«£T fhflt fchftir t.illlft was short, have come down with great wrath upon their subordinate and exact the utmost farthing. THE LEADERS. ‘‘The rebellion, therefore, seems to be one that has the amplest justification, and the general hope of foreigners is that its final result may be the establishment of a better system of government. its leaders are men of worth and probity, and its methods of procedure worthy of all commendation. The Chief General is a man of eighty-nine years of age. and a skilful bowman. His Second in command is a lad of fourteen, whose precocious sagacity and bravery have woa for him the devotion of his fellows, who reverence him as if he were a God. The third in command is a skilful swordsman, a Japanese, who has earned a reputation for the havoc his blade commits in the ranks of the foe. These three seem to have established a very fair dicipline amongst them. REVOLT SPREADING. “They come as the friends of a down trodden people, respecting the property of those amongst whom they come, anc this is continually inereashig the number of their adherents, and gaining the secret sympathy of those In districts still in the hands of the Government. Badly armed and provisioned at first, they have now abundance of arms and provisions, since one of the princi pal military stations of the kingdom fell into their hands. * The move ment has so far mef with unbroken success, and the insurrection soldiers now al most stand at the Capital Sooul. Under these circumstances the Korean Minister ap plied to China for aid against the rebels, an application which was at once granted. For some years it has been the Chinese practice to keep soldiers in plain clothes in Korea, who recently followed various trades, but were in reality a reserve force ready for action at short notice. With the aid of these and of other forces dispatched subsequently there is little doubt that the Government of Korea would shortly have been able to remain in power, and then hopes of a reformation would have been indefinitely postponed, but China was not the only ^ ac tor on the scene, for, unbidden by Korea, and much to the displeasure of China, the Japanese Government resolved to interfere, and under the pretext of looking after its national interests, has dispatched a consid pmhlft force to the feninsular. This torce is much greater than is re quired for purposes of protection^ for the five thousand Japanese in Korea do not need a force of teu thousand troops and several iron clads to protect their in terests. It is evident from the number of troops sent and from the strict secrecy which has been employed by the Japanese Gov ernment and the silence imposed upon the native press, that something more is in tended than the mere protection of her sub jects. ” ETERNAL SQUEEZING. Speaking on the Korean subject, the Kobe Herald says official squeezing has become so merciless in Korea that productive farms are everywhere deserted, and the oppressed farmers either emigrate to China or Russia or join the bauds of robbers that obstruct what little traffic there is'in the country. '1 ho so-called rebels would undoubtedly suc ceed if let alone, but China, the external foe to the welfare of Korea. China who has forced tribute from Korea since two thousand, B. C., will do all she can to help put down the insurrection. The rising, we may predict, will soon come to an end and serve only to add another chapter of torture, death, im prisonment, confiscation and banishment to the ignominous annals of dark destined Korea.” A Shanghai paper says:—“There is an agreement between China and Japan that neither power shall send troops into Korea without the consent of the other, and it is therefore hoped these troops are sent by mutual consont. It seems improbable, how ever, that the two powers, so jealous of each other, can avoid a conflict under the cir cumstances.” It is generally reported that a Russian force has been despatched into Korea. The number of soldiers in the vicinity of Vladi vostoek is about 1,000, and Russia has twelve war vessels on that station, besides six steamers of the volunteer fleet. It is probable that some of these men of war have been despatched to Korea. Hriiaiu Intercede*. By Cable to the United Press. London, July 5, 1804.—In the House of Commons today Sir Edward Grey, Par liamentary Secretary to the Foreign Office, replying to a question by Ellis Ash mead, said that Great Britain, in the interest of peace, had made representa tions to China and Japan in regard to the ni.ncnnf tcniitilo nTmt/inrr nnt flio .farmnDgn occupation of Corea, and the Government had reason to believe that the deferences would bo amicably arranged. STATEN ISLAND'S PEST, New Yop.k, July 5,1894.—Chief Inspector Doty of the Division of Contagious Diseases of the Board of Health was called in con sultation with officers of the Staten Island Health Department at Edge water yesterday to devise means for fighting the smallpox outbreak on the Island.

There was to have been a meeting of the Street and Water Board this morning, but owing to Mr. Kellers’ absence it was post poned until Monday. It was arranged to bounce about twenty clerks and laborers, but action was deferred. Commissioner Hooker reported that he was supervising an experiment with soft coal at Belleville. Engineer Miller, who for ten years was an engineer on a steamship, does not belief it will not bo a success. He maintains that there is no coal equal to pea for steam creating purposes. The experi ment being made by Mr. Hooker is w ith a load of soft coal given to the city free of charge. The company has an experienced man at the station doing all he can to show that it is the best coal for the city to pur chase. The pea coal is offered at such a low > figure, however, that the Commissioners favor its use. ___ THE BEARS HAD NO LICENSE.

ARRESTED TOR AR30N. Jame. Meeliau Accused of Setting Fire to Hi. Store. James Meehan, thirty-eight years old, of No. 152 Manhattan avenue, was arrested last night on suspicion of arson as he was leaving his store at No. 458 Central avenue. Patrolman Hagen saw a blaze m the store, and running across the street caught Meehan 1_-41 ...4 u;.*. to open it, and going in extinguished the fire just as it was spreading to the counter. Hagen detected a strong odor of kerosene oil. and on examination discovered a broken tea box saturated with it. As no oil is ever used in the store the officer suspected the fire was of incendiary origin and placed Meehan under ariest. His examination was postponed until to morrow. Meehan stated that he bought the oil to clean a pair of scales: but there were no signs of the scales ije had reference to hav ing been touched in the, way of cleaning. ONE MAN~L0ST The Crew of a Shipwrecked Schooner Picked Up. Gloucester, Mass., July^ 5, 1894.—The schooner Clara R. Littlefield, -which was re ported to have lost her entire crew on Georges Saturday, leaving the captain and cook on board, has arrived from Georges, having picked up three of her crew the morning after they were lost. Eight of the crew were carried to Block Island, having been picked up by the barque Nathan Cleaves of Portland, leaving only one man. Joseph Grace Souza, missing. Though the men were spared the rigors of a winter storm, several of the crew tell a story of a wearisome night, and thou h the neat asaore was uiuiyst Iiuvcmauip, liiujuc?h were obliged to use every exertion to keep from being benumbed by the cold. The men left the vessel about ten o'clock Saturday forenoon. and after the last man had been dropped the vessel was started for first man, as is customary, but finding one of the dories adrift, she was brought about to give its oecupaut seme directions. This resulted in the captain's losing them on ac I count of a sudden, thick fog. The men remained at their trawls during the day, and as the weather grew cold three of them anchored their dories close together, keeping themselves from freezing by rowing to and from their anchorage. Eight others started in search of a vessel, and after rowiug most of the night were picked up by the Cleaves. The cap tain and cook cruised around the locality until dark, frequently souuding the horn in the hope of attracting the missing men, and at night came to anchor, resum ing the search at daylight and sighting the three dories during a lift of the fog shortly before noon. Part of the niou were .sup plied with water in their dories, but, the others suffered intensely from tbiret. The crew think that the missing man was probably picked up by a coaster bound to a Nova Scotian, or a Southern port, and will soon be heard from. He has a wife and five children in Gloucester.
