Kansas Crrr, Oct. 19 The following telegraphic correspondence in reference to a mooted paragraph in General Miles' annaal report is self-explanatory: . Kansas Crrr, Oct. 17 General Nelson A. Miles, U. S. A., Fort Sill, via Rush Springs, I. T. This paragraph in your recent annnal report is being much quoted aod commented upon by the press and public: "The conduct 'of tne troops in restoring order and confidence, where mob violence and a reign of terror ex isted in Chicago, was marked by great forbearance, fortitude and excellent du cipline, and tbeir presence and action here very greatly contriouied to tbe maintenance of civil- law, aud, in my opinion, saved this country from a very sorioaa rebellion, when one had been publicly declared to exist by tbe one most responsible lor its existence." It bas been said the ene you refer to is President Cleveland, and it baa been ex plained by your friends that yon proba bly meant EuBene V. Debs. Will you please wire a statement about tbe matter to tbe Associated Press at Kansas City, Mo., for dissemination throughout the country, and thereby favor us. Melville E. Stone, General Manager Associated Press. Anandaree, O. T., Oct. 19 Melville E. Stone, General Manager Associated Press, Kansas City, Mo.: The language in my annual report does not warrant any sucb absurd misconstruction as is contained in your dispatch. Tbe earnest desire and purpose of tbe president in maintaining the supremacy of tbe law and tbe civil government and tbe restor ation of peace with tbe least, possible delay, is too well known to be misunder stood or lightly appreciated. .Nelson A. Miles, Msjor General. The Japanese Parliament. HriioscHiMA, Japan, Oct, 19 Bills ntroduced at the extraordinary session of parliament convened by tbe mikado, in clude, first, a bill calling for a special accountancy of the extraordinary war expenses; secondly, a bill empowering tbe government to borrow money to defray tne expenses of tbe war. the maximum amount being placed at 100,000,000 yen, and thirdly, an extraordinary budget providing for tbe expenditure for tbe war ef a total of 150,000,000 yen, of which 26,000,000 will be defrayed by tbe surplus. Tbe president of tbe diet. M. Kusumoto, replying to the speech of tbe mikado, thanked' bis majesty for advancing with tbe imperial standard and for personally taking charge of the war, saying the vic tories were tbe natural results of this action. M. Kusumoto added "Your majesty might have considered China was tbe enemy ef civilization, and we obey .tbe imperial desire to destory its barbarouB obstinacy." ttrowlbaT Worse. St. Petersburg, Oct. 19 There seems to' be no longer any reasonable doubt that tbe czar is rapidly approach ing bis end. A dispatch from Lividia today announces that his condition has changed for the worse since yesterday, and tbe imperial family is alarmed. A special difpatch received subsequently from Lividia says the czar last evening suffered from a sudden spasm of tbe heart, which compelled him to lie down. His condition became so critics! that bis confessor, Father Tamscbew, was hastily summoned. It is reported here this afternoon an imperial - edict will be published Monday entrusting the regency to tbe czarowitz, General Count Voront zoffdacboff, aide-de camy to tbe emperor, and minister of tbe Imperial honae; K. P. Pobiebcnastieff, procurator-general of the holy synod, actual privy councillor; Witte, minister of tbe interior, and lien- eral Vannouski, minister ef war. It is announced here this afternoon the condition of tbe czar is desperate. rhe;ivanhoe. Washington, Oct. 19 Assistant Secretary Hamlin today received a tele gram from Senator Squires and Editor G H Hilbron, of Seattle, Wash ., saying that Frederick J. Grant, ex-minister to Bolivia, and one of tbe owners of the Pott-Intelligencer, was a passenger on the ItanJioe, supposed to bave been lost 50 miles sontbwest of Cape Flattery, on tbe Washington coast, September 88, and asking that searching parties be sent north . - Senator Squise says it is possible the crew ot 18 men of tbe Itanhoe and Mr. Grant may bave taken to tbe boats and bave been carried to the north coast of Vancouver island. Tbe assistant secretary sent telegrams to Captain Tozier, of tbe revenue cutter Grant, now at Port Townsend, and to Captain Mon ger, ot the Corwin, at San Francisco, to proceed immediately to searco lor toe lost crew and passenger. Secretary Herbert also may send a vessel to join in tbe search. The Japanese Fleet. ' Tien-Tsin, Oct. 19 The Norwegian steamer Peik, from Shanghai, was re cently overhauled and searched by a Japanese warship off Sbang Tung prom ontory . Nothing which could be classed as contraband of war was found. The csptain of the Norwegian steamer reperts he sighted a fleet of Japanese warships 30 miles off TaKu. The Chinese fleet, wbicb had been undergoing repairs at Port Arthur, was ordered to leave tbat port yesterday, Oct oner 1. Tbe Japanese are expected to cross tbe Talu river at a point SO miles northeast of Chuleang Cheng, where the Chinese army head quarters is situated. General Sing is in command ef tbo Chinese forces at tbat place. The Bevoiatloiilsjta. Montevideo, Uruguay, Oct. 19-Ad miral Saldana Da Gama banquetted Bra zilian officers last night. All drank to the success of tbe revolutionary cause, and pledged themselves to take an active part if the Brazil committee here decided to continue tbe struggle alter an inau guration ot Dr. Morales as president. Sympathizers with tbe Brazilian revolu tion are jnbilant over victories in Rio Grande no Sul. General Saravia is now pushing northward with a considerable body of men, intending to attack tbe government forces in Matto Grosso. Sixteen officers have left here to join tbe revolutionists. A Chinese Vprlslnsr. London, Oct. 19 -A Shanghai dispatch reaffirms the statement that a small up- rising bas taken place st Kualo Hwei, in which two officials were killed. Tbe same diapatch says that tbe peculations of Sbeng, tbe taotai of Tien-Tin, have been well known throughout China, but certain persons in exalted positions bave endeavored to suppress all mention of bis irregularities. . ' Hansred. St. PAUiOct. 19 At 5:16 tbis morn ing Charles Ermish and Otto Wenigkeit were banged. These desperadoes, weam ing masks, about 9 o'clock on tbe night of May 2, eutered tbe saloon ot L. R Kohlman, demanded drinks, and shot and Killed Lindholf, tbe barkeeper Ermish was but 19. and Womgkeit less tban 21. While under death sentence, Ermish secured a revolver from bis mother, shot and painfully wounded tbe deatb watch and escaped part way through the jail. ' M nesting 1 heir Forces. London. Oct. 19 A Shanghai dispatch says 500 troops accompany tbe viceroy of Hu-Kwang province to Peking. A letter from Tien-Tsin reports that 30,000 troops bave arrived there from various provinces. It is expected by tbe end ot tbe month 100,000 troops will bave arrived. Forty-eight thousand cavalry are arriving frem different prov inces, especially Sbin K'ng and Kino. Tbe nrst installment of German rifles has ariived at Tien-Tsin. France and Egypt. Paris, Oct. 19 The Steele, discussing the eastern war, says France cannot discuss the Corean question while the British hold Egypt. The Doctors aMsaxree. Paris, Oct. 20 A council of ministers was held at Elysee palace today Premier Dupny notified tbe council be was in receipt of telegraphic advices stating there was a slight improvement in tbe czir's condition . Early this afternoon a dispatch from St. Petersburg announces tbe latest re ports received tbere from Lividia state that although the czar is still alive, he has rapidly weakeued. A striking fact n connection with the czar's illness is tbe difference of opinion regarding the exact nature of the malady from which he is suffering. J?igaro, for instance, today declares tbe symptoms disagree with tbe usual symptoms of kiuney disease. Professor Sacbarjin was convinced it was cancerous and impossible to operate upon. Tais was bis ground for recently Informing tbe czar he could not possibly live, as the disease was incurable. Professor Leyden. however, was more optimistic, aod, after a careful study ot tbe symptoms of the czir's trouble ex pressed tbe belief it was true a tumor listed, but be added it was of a benign nature and curable. Figaro makes- tbe tartling statement tbe czar bas been badly nursed, and the arrangements for is care were quite of a primitive nature. Tbis statement is somewhat unkind as it is known tbe czar's most assiduous Durse bas been tbe czarina, who, according to rumor, bas broken down under tbe strain of attending continually upon ber dying husband. L Tempi says tbere is not a corner of France where prayers bave not been offered up tor the recovery of the czar. The czar, since tbe tetes at Toulon following tbe arrival tbere of the Russian spuadron under Admiral Avillan. bas everywhere in tbe French reoublic been I considered as a life-ally of France. '. Tbe National Zeitnng says M. Hano taux, minister of foreign affairs, bas received news tbat the czar died last night, and tbat be is withholding tbe dispatch nntil tbe news is confirmed by the Russian embassy here. Tbe officials at the foreign office declare tbat no sucb dispatch bas bean received. ttlanek. ' Seattle, Oct. 20 Thomas Blanck was sentenced to death by Judge Humes to day and fully bore out his' reputation as a desperado. He was brought into court with "twisters" on bis wrists, a detective on each Bide, while Jailer Monroe fol lowed closely behind. Wben Judge Humes asked Blanck if he bad anything to say why sentence should not be passed, the prisoner, who was near tbe stenographer's desk, arose, tilted up a chair with one foot, leaned over tbe back of it, placed one manacled hand under bis chin, looked steadily into tbe eyes of tbe jndge, and said in a voice full of venom: "I'll come back and haunt you. I won't have one gun then, but two, and wben I tell you to put up your bauds, I'll plug you pretty quick." As be referred to tbe weapons, he threw both bands forward, after the manner of a highwayman. Tbe man seemed like a wild beast at bay.' Judge Humes then prononced the sentence, closing with tbe accustomed formula tbat wben tbe day of execution is set a war rant will issue. Blanck, who still leaned defiantly over tbe chair, quickly said: "I want it pretty damned quick." He was tben taken to bis cell, and went quickly. Repulsed. - Shanghai, Ok. 29 Accordicg fo Chi nese advices a severe battle has been fonght on the lower portion of The Talu river. Tbe Japanese are said to have crossed tbe river and attacked the Chi nese, but, after fierce fighting, tbe Japa nese were repulsed. Both sides are said to bave lost heavily. Tbe Chinese do not claim a conclusive victory, but de clare tbat they still maintain their position. No confirmation of the dis patch is obtainable, but it is thought probable tbat fighting bas actually occurred . It is believed tbat tbe Japanese will claim an effective blockade of tbe Gulf of Pe-Chi-Li. - A Tien Tain-dispatch reports tbat large quantities of munitions of war are arriv ing there from Germany, wbicb are being forwarded to New -Cbang and Port Arthur. Five Dead. Joliet, 111, Oct. 21 One of the most disastrous explosions tbat has occurred on tbe drainage canal happened tbis morning about 4 'clock, by which three men were killed ontrigbt and three sen riously injured. Tbe explosion took place at Rickers & Lsan's camps, near Summit. A gang of men were at work putting in a blast, wben tbe giant powder exploded, blowing three men to pieces Wben the explosion took place tbe other men van for tbeir lives, and tbe dead conld not be identified. Last evening another explosion took place at tbe same camp, where two men were killed and wounded. None of them have any rela tives or friends here. Olney'n Decision. Washington, Oct. 20 Attorney General Olney has rendered an opinion, said to be substantially tbe same as tbat of Solicitor Reeve, of tbe treasury depart ment, on the power of a state to itsue bills of a small denomination for circu lating purposes. Solicitor Reever held tbat a state bad sucb right, but be went still further and held that such issue of bonds was not subject to the J0-per-cent law as currency. Neither Secretary Carlisle nor Attorney-General Olney will make public tbe exact text of tbe decision which Secretary Carlisle received this morning. Reinforcements. London, Oct 20 A Tokio dispatch says tbat 40.000 Japanese troops, under command of Marshal Count Oyama, have left Hiroshima on a fleet of 33 transports. Tbeir destination u not known. TELEGEAPHIO. Other airmbera Slot. Vienna, Oct. 20 A special dispatch from St . Petersburg says that tbe czarina, who bad watched constantly until today at her husband's bedside, bas had a stroke of apoplexy. Tbe Grand Duchess , Xenia, her eldest daughter, bas broken down under the nervous strain and is obliged to pass most of tbe time in bed. i It is also reported her son, Grand Duke George, is dying. Tbe czar was tapped today for dropsy. It is improbable ibat tbe Princess Alix will reach Lividia in time to be married to too czarowitch before tbe czar's deatb . The Ivanhoe. Seattle, Oct. 20 The Canadian steamer Quadra arrived at Victoria today. after a cruise along tbe west coast of Vancouver island, and reports ne signs oi me missing ship. The othcers of tbe Ouadro believe tbe Ivanhoe to be all right. The failure of Captain Tozier, of tbe revenue cutter Grant, to cruise down the Washington coast Monday last, to look for wreckage, is meeting with severe criticism. Tbe cutter bas again been or dered outside and will make tbe search in connection with tbe Corwin and tbe tug Pioneer. - Chinese Mqaadron. Shanghai, Oct. 20 Four vessels of tbe Cbmese southern sqadroa have ar rived at WeiHai-Wei. Tbe Chinese steamer Tuna Chow, which bas arrived here, repoits two Chinese ironclads and one Chinese cruiser, which bave been undergoing repairs at Port Arthur, have reached Wei- Hai-Wei. It is added tbe other Chinese warships will require more extentive repairs, and consequently tbe departure from Port Arthur may be de layed for some time. The Other Passengers. Seattle, Wash., Oct. 20 Among the passengers from Seattle on board the overdue ship Ivanhoe, besides Hon. F. J. j Grant,-ex -prime minister to Bolivia and managing editor of the Past -Intelligencer, of this city, were two ladies, one Mrs. Mamie L. Bard, whose mother resides here, and tbe other a friend ot Mrs. Bard, name unknown. A student of naviga- tion, Allen P. Folger, was also a passen ger. Mrs. Keile, mother of Mrs. Bard, is prostiated and ber life is dispaired of. A Fire. Ntack, N. T., Oct. 22 Four graod- cbildreu of Rev, William Taylor, Metho dist missionary bishop of Africa, perished in tbe burning of tbe elegant house of tbeir father, Rnss Taylor, at South Ny ack, early today. In addition one man was so badly burned be can scarcely re cover, and two others were seriously injured. It was a little after 4 o'clock when Mrs. Taylor was awakened by smoke. She aroused her husband. Rev. Rots Taylor. He found the balls filled with smoke, tbe fire having obtained great headway. Mr. and Mrs. Tavlor groped through tbe suffocating smoke to the outer air, without having been able to extend a helping band to tbeir six chil dren or others ot tbe household. As Mr. and Mrs. Tavlor emerged, tbe fire de partment arrived. Tbe energies 'of all were directed toward tbe rescue of those who remained in tbe doomed strncture. Tbe two eldest Taylor children, Stewart and William, were aroused, and jumping from tbe window, were caught without being seriously injured. Harriet, aged 11; Ada, 9; Arthur, 7; and Scbultz, 5, perished. Tbeir bodies were recovered tbree bonrs later. Michael Mo lady, laborer, and Edward Link and William Ruth, bouse-decorators, sleeping in the third story, jnmped for tbeir lives. Mulady was fatally hurt; Ruth and Link sustained serious injuries, but will prob ably recover. Tbe bouse bad been recently built, and the interior decora tions were still incomplete. The tnneral 01 tne lour children was held at 11a.m. today. Tbe four charred bodies were placed in one casket. Rev. J B Taylor officiated, and Rev. Ross Taylor, tbe bereaved father, made a few remarks, telling several pathetic inci dents. Many Wounded. Chehttlpo, Oct. 22 A detachment ef 1800 wounded Japanese bas arrived here. Tbere are a large number of wounded at Seoul. In addition, 2100 wounded Japanese bave been sent to Japan. At Ping Tang there are 1200 wounded Chi nese in tbe hospitals. Tbe rebellious Tong Haks of southern Corea are restless, and only tbe fact tbat tbey are not pro vided wi:b arms prevents them from breaking out into open revolt and mov ing upon Seoul, far wbicb many or tbem bave started. Four hundred Japanese soldiers have been stationed at the king's palace at Seoul, as tbe king's brother is believed to be leagued' with the Tong Haks, Tbe Chinese are mobilizing a force at Kiern and gathering a strong force at Pow Ting Fo. Tbe second son of ' tbe king of Corea left bere October 15 aa a special envoy to tbe mikado, in order. It is supposed, to return tbe visit of the Marquis Sloulo, a Japanese envoy. The king's son took him a quantity of presents. Many letters to Europeans In Corea have been opened by tbe Japanese autberities. Tbe British consul's mail- bag was detained tbree weeks. Suicide. Oregon City, Oct. 22 Ross L Spen cer, constable of this precinct, shot and killed bimtelf bere tbis morning. He went to tbe sheriff's office about 9 o'clock and borrowed a revolver from the sheriff. He tben went down to Justice Dixon's court and finished up some work he bad to do. About 10 o'clock be was found with a bullet hole clear through bis head alive, but unconscious. A physician was called, who, upon examination, pro nounced tbe wound fatal. He lingered until noon, wben he died without having regained bis consciousness. Mr. Spencer was about 60 years of age, and leaves a widow and six children. He was elected constable on tbe populist ticket last June, and bas made a very efficient officer. He bas been quite despondent lately, saying the office did not pay enough to support bis family. He owned a bouse and lot at Canemah, where be resided. Talk of a Revolution. ' Qukzeltenanuo, Guatemala, Oct. 23 It is known tbat the opponents of President Barrios have distributed over 500 rifles in tbe rural districts within a fortnight. Tbe concentration of troops by Mexico on tbe frontier has aroused fear among the people. Tbe reports of spies sent bere by Barrios bave evidently f.ightened bim. ' It is positively known tbat President Barnes Is sending agents throughout the country to pacify the people, who are tired of bis government. Tbe movement of troops toward tbe frontier continues, notwithstanding de nials by tbe ' government. If war is declared between Mexico and Guatemala, revolution undoubtedly will break out Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report ABSOLUTELY PURE at three different points, and President Barrios will be among tne first to be killed. Fire in a: to llexleo.

In fact, notwithstanding ihe ample supplies, the proportion of desi'bble beef steers bas been small. Tbere has been a good demand all week for tbe riht kind of stock, and prices for anything at all de sirable have held tbeir own fairly well . On the poor to fair rough thin stock the mar ket has shown neither life nor strength, and if anything prices have shaded off as compared with last week. An unusually active demand for feeders the past day or two has rather helped the market for low grade beef steers, but the general toue to the trade is weak. ' "The stocker and feeder market has im proved right along in spite of heavy re ceipts, aod a comparatively drill cattle tiade. There appears to be an unusual urgent demand from all parts of the country for stackers aud feeders, particularly tbe former, as they will'not have to be fed corn the coming season. Values in general bave advanced 1525c, the light cattle and yearlings showing tbe most advance. The volume ef trading bos been large." The cascade shocks.

Morgan. Col. Chat. E. Morgao, formerly a resident of this city and the impelling; motive of the organization of the Third regiment O. N. G., was arrested in Portland on a charge of em bezzlement Saturday evening in Portland. Since leaving this city be bas bean sngsgsd in real estate and insurance basinssi in the metropolis. Of late years be has boss a constant drinker and has gambled. In interviews with persons interested in the companies whose money he has embezzled, tbe Oregonian publishes the following: "Morgan seemed to work indastnoasly for some time," said Mr. Arnold, "bat got into trouble daring the flood of this year. He went oyer to the East Side, and for several weeks I did not hear from him. Finally when the waters had subsided suf ficiently to allow me, I drove over there te look him up1. This was on July 1. . I found Morgan in a saloon, and learned that bo had been on a continuous spree, Wbsn I asked bim for the money he bad collected on several polices he had issued, hs pot me off, saying he would settle later. "The long and short of it all is," con cluded Mr. Boyd, "that I found be bad collected several hundred dollars, and when confronted with the oondition of affairs he ' acknowledged his crookedness. I asked him to settle with me, and as be did not have any money, I told bim to try and se cure me. ibis be did not do, and several months having sinoe passed, daring which time he bas avoided me, I concluded hs wonld not try to settle. So far as I know, he has embezzled $033. My real reasons for haying him arrested are the result of re ports I have received that be was getting ready to leave tbe oity for California." The Dreamer. The celebrated individual In Portland who, in tbe midst of the visions of the night saw the express robbery in this oity arrived hers on the train yesterday. He located the place, and with the consent ot the owner began to dig tor the boned treasure. With'spade and pick be went at his work with a foil consciousness of snoeess crown ing his efforts, and the whole became deeper and deeper. After three hours' arduous labor his pick struck against something which gave forth a aharp aound, which be thought must be the golden specie. He satisfactorily rested, and smoked his pips in tbe firm belief that he would unravel the mystery and win the $1,500 reward. . With renewed energy he continued and soon ax- posed to visw an old piece of iron that had been imbedded in tbe ground for the best part of a century. He dag on for a little while, and then gays np in disgust. It is presumed that he will place himself in proper condition, and, like, "Peter Ibbet- son," dream straight next time. In tbe meantime tbe mystery will remain unsolved. Sale of Sheep.
