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.

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.

and pledged themselves to take an active

pushing northward with a considerable
body of men, intending to attack tbe

Sixteen officers have left here to join tbe

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

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

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

South Omgha Market.
A market review from South Omaha
for
tbe week ending October 13, says:
"There has been something of a decrease
in receipts tbis week, but there has been no
corresponding improvement in values for fat
cattle. 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.
The Oregonian says: The board of Coited
States engineers, convened to consider
modifications of the original plan for the
Cascade locks, have completed their inspec
tion of the locks and were preparing their
report for tbo chief of engineers yesterday.
Tneir report cannot be made publio at
present, bat it is understood1 that the mod
ifications, if any are to be made, amount to
very little. Tbe principal thing desired is
the speedy completion of the woik, whioh
is progressing favorably. Colonel Craighill
and Captain Marshall, of the board, will
leave for the east at once. Colonel Mendell
has gone to Yaquina bay with Captain Sym
ons to look over the jetty work in progress

A rreot ot" Cel. 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.
The Fossil Journal says: "Mr. George
Wright, better known ss Winnipeg Wright,

Major Hartwig, who for tbe past year
baa been engaged allotting the lands of the
Warm Spring agency to tbe Indians under
