Japan Also Would Agree to Relln unlili the Hold It Has Gained Upon Manchuria, So Minister Hayasht ut London Defines the Position ot Japan—His Country Ready for Peace as Soon ns Port Arthur Shall Have Fallen. London, Nov. 11.—The dispatch of the Associated Press from Washington confirming the statement made in these dispatches that Japan had lndioated her willingness to entertain peace sug gestions from President Roosevelt or King Edward created much interest here. Baron Hayashi, the Japanese minister, said to-day: “After the fall of Port Arthur Japan would, I believe, be ready to treat for peace on no higher essential basis than that Russia should evacuate Man churia, Japan also agreeing to a simi lar evacuation. “The two great difficulties in the way of any suggestion of peace are, first, the apparent opposition of Em peror Nicholas’ present advisers to a settlement of any kind; second, the preservation of Russian prestige. When a nation’s prestige, if not gone, is se verely impaired, it is a difficult mat ter, even with the best of intentions, to preserve it.” The Associated Press learns that Queen Alexandra has been in constant communication with the Dowager Em press of Russia and Emperor Nicholas himself during the last few days. This is interpreted here as a hopeful sign, and as possibly likely to lead, though not in the immediate future, to the establishment of some modus vivendi whereby steps looking to arbitration might be initiated without offense to Russia. The reiteration of the American State Department's determination not to intervene except on requests from both belligerents tallies with the offi cial attitude of the British govern ment, but it is thought that before long some method may privately be devised whereby this diplomatic bar rier to action will be overcome. japaneselnfantry WERE DISLODGED Driven Ont of Trenches Before Done Tree Hill. Mukden, Nov. 11.—There was a heavy exchange of artillery fire yes terday at the Russian right center. The Russian batteries began shelling the Japanese trenches and the Japanese batteries responded. During last night Russian volunteers dislodged a detachment of Japanese infantry from trenches in front of Lone Tree hill. The Japanese continue to show ac tivity on the left flank, without, how ever, engaging in any serious move ment. Comfortable dugouts are being built along the Russian lines and the sol diers seem to think they will winter where they are. The idea that Field Marshal Oyama contemplates an at tempt to take Mukden, Is not general ly entertained. Both sides seem con tent for the present with a suspension of hostilities. Warm clothing is being distributed among the troops. NOTHING KNOWN OF REQUEST FOR TRUCE. London. Nov. 12.—N0 confirmation has reached London of the rumors current on Nov. 10 of the capitulation of Port Arthur, that Gen. Stoessel was asking for an armistice, etc. According to the- Daily Telegraph's *’he Foo correspondent, Japan has consented to open the port of Antung to steamers chartered by silk mer chants when the latter obtain special Permits. This action Is due to Chi na's protest that exclusion of neutral shipping would ruin the silk trade.

Jacksonville, Fla., Nov. 11.—United States Marshal Horr has received a telegram from Tampa stating that there is a man there serving a sentence for vagrancy that is believed to be Samuel D. Gray, who is wanted by the federal authorities for alleged fraudu lent use of the mail. Gray is the man who swindled a number of Savannah merchants by claiming to be Nathan Mayo of Sum merfield, Fla. Photographs and de scriptions of Gray have been forward ed to Tampa John W. Dodge, an attorney of Jack sonville, has received from a law firm of Chicago a request to locate and send an accurate description of one Samuel D. Gray, believed to be located in Flor ida. The communication says that Gray is heir to a large fortune, and the law firm wishes to be sure of the identity of the legatee. From infor mation furnished by them it is a cer tainty that the Gray they wish to lo cate is the same Gray that worked the Savannah business men. Advices received to-day from San Juan, Porto Rico, are to the effect that Gray did not proceed to France on the steamer which he embarked on after giving bond when arrested in that city. He left the steamer at Guadaloupe, French West Indies, and it is possible that he made bis way from Guadaloupe to Tampa. Develop ments are expected to-morrow. frightTuTdrlams CAUSED HIS DEATH. Sensational Cases Have Come to Light In Jersey City. New York, Nov. 11. —Frederick Ewe, a young tradesman, who always had borne a good reputation until he was arrested ten days ago on charges made by two little girls, died .in a cell in the Jersey City jail to-day. It is believed that his death was due to fright and constant worry as to what fate had in store for him. Ewe was one of fourteen Hudson county men arrested on serious charges preferred by lititle girls, and his death adds another dramatic link to the cases which have shaken Hudson coun ty from center to circumference. Al ready many reputations in Jersey City and Hoboken have been shattered and two of the accused have tried to com mit suicide. Since his confinement in jail Ewe had continually protested his Innocence of the charges against him. Fear of conviction, however, preyed upon him constantly. He frequently awoke with startled screams and told the keepers of terrible dreams in which the faces of his accusers appeared. To-day when his cell was entered Ewe’s body was lying on the floor. His face was distorted with fear, and the doctors say that death probably came as a result of one of the frightful dreams which had haunted him. DENMARK IS FOR IT. Will Accept Roosevelt's Peace Con ference Invitation. Copenhagen, Nov. Xl.—The Danish government will accept President Roosevelt’s invitation to participate in a second peace conference. The gov ernment. it is declared, is desirable that a clearer international agreement be formulated regarding neutrality and contraband regulations. Negotiations for a treaty of arbitra tion between the United States and Denmark have been opened. The Dan ish government, it is declared, is glad of the opportunity to enter into such a treaty. Washington, Nov. 11. —Great Britain and Mexico already have indicated their willingness to participate In an other peace conference, so that the an nouncement of Denmark's intention to do so will make three of the nations of the world enrolled in favor of Pres ident Roosevelt’s proposition. Mexico and Great Britain, however, have ac cepted only in principle, leaving the question of date and programme for the meeting open so that the time for another conference remains quite in definite. The arbitration treaty with Den mark, announcement of which is made in the Copenhagen dispatch, will fol low the lines of that already signed with France and other countries. A similar treaty negotiated with Swit zerland awaits the signature of the high contracting parties. roosevelT answers” WILLIAM’S MESSAGE.

NOVEMBER 12. 1901 FOUR MURDERED; HOME WAS BURNED PARENTS AND CHILDREN MET AN AWFUL FATE IN THEIR CALIFORNIA HOME. Jnllns Weber, His Wife and Their 10-Yenr-Old Daughter and 14- I enr-011l Son the Victims—House Was Set On Fire to Conceal the Crime of Mnrder—Surviving Son Says He Hus a Theory, Rut Will Not Give It. Auburn, Cal., Nov. 11.—It is now known that Julius Weber, his wife, their 19-year-old daughter, Bertha, and their son, Paul, aged 14 years, were murdered last night by an unknown assassin, who set ftre to the home in an effort to cover his crime. Before the fire had made any great headway, the bodies of the murdered woman and her two children were rescued from the burning house. An examination of the bodies show ed that Mrs. Weber and the children had been murdered before the fire had been started. Mrs. Weber and her daughter had been killed by pistol wounds. On the boy’s head were sev eral deep cuts. He had also been shot. All efforts to reach Julius Weber, the father, were abandoned until to day. when a search was made in the burning timbers and his body was found in the bathroom of the dwelling. He, too, had been shot down before being left to be consumed by the flames. This makes the death list as follows: Julius Weber, aged, 48. Mrs. Julius Weber, aged 41. Bertha Weber, aged 19. Paul Weber, aged 14, their son. Body of Weber Found. The body of Mr. Weber was so badly burned that it was impossible to as certain how often he was shot. It has been ascertained beyond a doubt that the women were killed in one room and their clothing set on fire, and that they were then dragged into the apartment where their bodies were discovered. One very peculiar circumstance of the tragedy is that, while the bodies J. FRANK HANLY. I ’ INDIANA REPUBLICAN WHO CAR RIED HIS STATE For GOVERNOR. of the mother and daughter were burned to some extent, the apartment in which they were lying was not on fire when the firemen broke in, which showed that they had been killed in some other portion of the house, par tially burned and then dragged Into the room where they were found. Robbery Theory Exploded. The robbery theory is about explod ed. Adolph Weber, the son, aged 20, who is the only member of the family alive, talks but little, but to the cor oner and sheriff, he says he did not think the motive was either robbery or revenge. When asked if he had a the ory, he said he had, but would not give it. He did say, reluctantly, that his father had a violent temper. The boy eald he left the house about 6:30 o'clock, came down town and bought a pair of trousers. When he went to the fire he dropped his old trousers, which were in a bundle In the burning building. Young Weber has a good reputation. Two 22-callber revolvers were found, but the bullets extracted from the bodies were of 22-caliber. Julius Weber was a retired brewer and was a man of considerable wealth. The family lived in a handsome home here, and Mr. Weber possessed valua ble property In Oakland, 001.

HUNTING FOR JACKSON Tim. Far lie Hi*. Eluded a Large 1’0..e In West Virginia. Charleston, W. Vu., Nov. 11.—At a late hour to-night all efforts to cap ture Edward Jackson, who shot and killed Sheriff Daniels and John Rolf, a prominent citizen in Montgomery, yes terday. as the result of the killing of hts brother. Constable Walter Jack son. by Policeman Elliott on Wednes day, had proved futile. Forces have been searching for Jack son all day and are still scouring the country for him to-night.

The excitement following the double shooting has somewhat subsided, hut the friends of Sheriff Daniels still threaten to lynch Jackson if he is captured. Ed Jackson was chased into a cave last night, when it was decided to wait for daylight for his capture. Al though the place was surrounded during the night Jackson escaped. The posse has been Increased to 350. Meantime, the friends of Jackson are reported to be only organising around Montgomery and swearing vengeance If Jackson is lynched or killed with out being given a trial. Gov. White was asked to send troops. He replied ho would hold troops in readiness, but advised form ing a large posse. Deputy sheriffs are being sworn In from adjacent counties and are has tening to the posse to prevent lynching or any violence If Jackson is taken alive and also to prevent any attempt of Jackson’s friends to res cue the prisoner. A reward of SI,OOO has been offered for Jackson dead or alive. THE FILIPINO SOLDIER. lie port lx MHle by Gen. Wailf, t’om maixler In Philippine*. Washington, Nov. 11.—Gen. J. F. Wade, commander of the Philippines division, in his annual report says chol era has disappeared from the islands. He says that while the troops in the islands have not been actively engag ed, itholr presence there Is necessary as an aid to the authorities. Continuing Gen. Wade says: "The Filipino soldier, both scout and constabulary, has done und is doing good work, but it Is the work of the trained soldier against the mob. He has been well armed, drilled and dis ciplined by American officers and led by these officers against 'the undis ciplined, und rilled and poorly armed outlaws of the provinces; men of his own ruce, but lacking his advantages and having nothing to gain and all to lose by fighting. The General adds that it. is to he hoped that within a reasonably short period conditions will have improved sufficiently to enable the constabulary to keep the 'peace throughout the is lands. and that “then the borrowed troops can be returned, and, by order of ;e President, the number of com panies 'reduced.” The actual value of the Filipino as a regular soldier, he says. Is still an open question. Gen. Wade approves the canteen, saying: "Under the canteen system more men will remain in the post, keep better dressed, have more money and more self-respect. The young recruit will be less liable to become a drunk ard and he will not be brought In con tact with the low dives that flourish In the near vicinity of military posts when prohibition rules on the reserva tion.” GRAIN CONCERN BREAKS. # Rise In Prices Too Strong for the Federal Coniitnny.
