OTIS' REPORT. : Military Suggestions Regard- mg the Pacific Coast SPOKANE FAV0BED FOB A POST. The Defense or Fnget Ronnd Advocated A Recommendation for the Pnrchaae of Eleven Locations for Fortifications . Troop No IVonger Needed for Indiana, bnt Apparently to Watch Turbulent Whites. Washington, Oct. 25. In his annual report Brigadior General Otis, command ing the department of tho Columbia, has much to say about coast dofenses and the rearrangement of posts. On tho latter subject ho says neither Fort Sherman nor Fort Spokane are properly located to meet the conditions of a regimental post, and after canvassing the merits the drawbacks of distant localities, he says that no point in that section offers the advantages of tho city of Spokane.a railroad center. General EHIOADIER GENERAL K. S. OTI3. Otis calls attention to tho fact that since lSSti the government has done very littlo looking to the protection of Piiget sound against foreign attack, notwithstanding the great development of tho country and the increase of population. He recom mends that tho eleven prominent points of defense selected by the fortifleations board last summer he acquired and placed under military control and that the forty three nscrvations withdrawn in past years bo turned over to the interior department for disposition. No Longer of Advantagn. Fort Townsend isbo longer of advant age and in its stead an infantry garrison should bo established at Mairno'liu HlufTs, near St.tlo, which would serve admira bly for the protection of the country lie yond the Cascades, where 10U.UK) people, dwell, part of them restless, demonstra tive and oftentimes turbulent, upon fan cied provocation. Should this project fail of approval General Otis recommends the a'oandonmeut of Fort Townsend and the transfer of its garrison to Vancouver bar rucks. The Three Tree Point military reservation of 640 acres could with propri ety lie turned over to tho interior depart ment for disposition. General Otis de scribes in sonic detail the movements und operations of his forces caused by tho commonweal movement, and the railroad strikes and pays a high compliment to the zeal, efficiency and g.md judgment displayed by the ollicers and men en gaged in this disiigreenblo and severe duty. Nothing Known of the Country. After telling of what was done toward the rescue of the Cnnhy parry from tho Clearwater country in " Idaho, General Otis says that the experience showed al most nothing was known of the topogra phy of the country, nnd he has sent two parties under Lieutenants Lcyden nnd KUiott into it to explore and to map out this rough section. In conclusion. Gen eral Otis says that for the first timo In tho hittory of the department of Columbia there is nothing to report upon the sub ject of the Indians. They liave created no disturbance; are peaceably inclined, nnd taking up lands in severalty, and govern ment wardship is disappearing. PEACE NEGOTIATIONS. Those Itotween China and Japan Likely to Tuke an Unexpected Turn. Washington, Oct. 5. Tho pence nego tiations between China and Japan are likely to tuko an unexpected turn, accord ing to diplomats here who are informed on tho progress of tho affair. The critical illness of the czar has for the time being diverted Russia from the attention sho was going to give to the eastern war and has made it improbable that tho czar should tuke the initiative toward bainging tho contestants together. The interven tion of England or Franco has lieen viewed with distrust owing to the terri torial interests those countries have in Asia. Under these circumstances diplo matic officials here say that Germany will undoubtedly take the initiative in any peace settlement. Whether such steps have already been taken is not known hero, but the officials best acquainted with the facts say there is littlo doubt of tho part Germany will take, nnd the intima tion is made that the negotiations will not be deferred. The same authorities say that when the peace proposition is submitted Japan would be the more ready of the two bel ligerent powers to accept it, notwith standing the reports that China was the more anxious for peace. The explanation given for this is that any peace settlement at tho present time would be to the marked advantage of Japan, owing to her recent victories, nnd to a correspond ing disadvantage to China. The Jupanese hove everything to gain by a settlement on the basis of the war up to date, while the Chinese have everything to gain by waiting until they offset these losses. The present basis of settle ment, as outlined bo a member of the diplomatic corps, would be the ao knewletlgcuieci by ohina of Corua's in dependence and the poyment to Japan of an Indemnity covering the expenses of thu war. This basis, it is said, Japan would speedily accept, as it would permit her to retire from the conflict with added prestige as a military power and with a large cash A'ND indemnity in her cofft-m. China on the vunorarj- w not expeoutl to yield to such an arrangement, humiliating to her pride and expensive to her purse. So shouid that foreign Intervention nnderGcrmany'a guidance 1.. tho settlement, it is be lieved that Cu.u . . will be the power re luctant to accept peace on tho terms dk scribed. - SWITCHMEN ARE REORGANIZED.
