FRUITS OF VICTORY
Negotiations Begun by China and Japan for a Treaty of Commerce. \9 JAPAN A FAVORED NATION. Now on Equal Terms With Great Britain and Other Big Nations. WASHINGTON, Aug. 18.—Word reaches the Japanese legation that the new Japanese minister at Pekin has began the negotiation of a treaty of commerce and navigation with China, and that everything is moving smooth ly without the difficulties that had been contemplated. This new treaty follows the treaty of peace made at Simonoseki, which briefly recited that when peace was fully restored new commercial treaties will be formed. It is an important document, as it gives in detail the terms on which China is to be opened to commerce, whereas the peace treaty recited only the general fact. The negotiations have pro reeded far enough to show that Japan will have the Kavorml Nation Clan** as to commerce. This will be the first time China has granted this clause to Japan. It assures to Japan the lowest rate of duty on articles sent to China that the latter country exacts from any other country. Japail is thus placed on equal terms for the lirst time with Great Britain, the United States and other great pow ers. Another feature of the treaty is the establishment of Japanese consular courts 111 China for the trial of Japan ese. This is to insure the Japanese against the crude judicial system and narsli punishments of China, and is similar to the consular courts that other leading nations maintain in 'lima. THE NEGROES ESCAPED Mob Wax Too Drunk to Unlock the Jill Uoori. LOIIBVILLK, Aug. 13.—A special to The Commercial from Lebanon, Ky., says: A mob of about 40 men went to the Springfield jail about 1 a. in. and demanded ol' the jailer the keys to the cell of Matthew Lewis and Jesse Ray, who outraged Mrs. Shields, white, re cently. The jailer, seeing resistance was useless, handed over the keys and the mob tt onoe proceeded to business. As everybody in the mob was drunk none of them seemed to be able to un lock the jail doors. After working at the locks and bolts without success, they procured sledge hammers and tried to batter down the doors. The doors proved too strong for them, how ever, and after "hours of hard work, they then abandoned the job. Re turning the keys they told the jailer they would be back. Later the sheriff brought Lewis and Ray to Louisville. BELIEVE THE WORST IS OVER. Settler* Getting Washington Flw» Under Control. OLYMPIA, Wash., Ang. 13.—The Associated Press representatives re turned during the evening from the burned district near Summit, west of here. Much timber has been laid waste, but unless heavy winds spring up settlers feel confident the worst is over. In logging camps of Mason county men are still guarding against riving embers, while others are re building burned out camps. The big fire started about 12 miles from here, where the flames had full play, and are raging all the way to Elma over a large territory on both sides of the road. Several ranches are in danger and occupants are using every means for protection from the flames. In most cases they are lighting fire and many of them have buried all their valuables, clothing, etc., to save them in case they are obliged to flee. Dam and Light Plant Washed Out.

SaU the HI'-Combine Will Soon 1U OfHciully Occlnred Off. MWXKAPOLJS, Aug. 13.—A Tacoma special to the Tribune s^ys: It is stat ed here in Northern Pacific circles that the Hill-Adams plan to reorganize the Northern •icilic is positively off, and that an authoritative statement to that effect will be made in New York very soon. High officials say the present earnings are sufficient to meet the in terest on the first, second and third mortgage bonds, and that if the earn fngs continue to increase at the present rate they will be sufficient within a year to pay the interest on the entire prsent bonded indebtedness. This fact, they say, has been fully explained to J. Pierpont Morgan and Mr. Adams, with the result that their views have undergone a change. It is understood that Morgan approved the first plan, which had to be dropped. He lias since expressed a willingness to join in a sirailar plan if it could be devised, but lias not committed himself to the third company" project as it stands. Adams is said to hold similar views. It is believed that within two weeks Hill's plan will IK Northern Pacific men claim to be lieve that Hill's chief object is to get possession of the Northern Pacific's splendid coast terminal system, which ho could nor duplicate, they say, for less than $8,000,000 to #10.(i 0,000. THE COLUMBIA'S RECORD. Said the Xiavy Department. Will Try to Iti-Hiik It with the Olympia. SAN FUANCISCO, Aug. 13. —The navy department has evidently determined to ascertain if the Columbia is the fastest of American warships and has assigned the houor of competition to the cruiser Olymp.a. The Olympia will soon go to join the Asiatic tquad roil and the department has ordered that she shall try to make an ocean record as far as Honolulu, at least, and possibly across the Pacific. Local na val officers interpret the order to mean that the government wishes to break the world's record made by the Colum bia recently, with an average 6peed of over IS knots an hour, which was made from Southampton to New York. "We believe sincerely that we shall beat Jthe recordjof the Columbia," said one of the officers of the Olympia. "The distance is 1,800 miles, and we ought to make it in four and one-half days." Will Re No Kaee. WASHINGTON, Aug. 13.—The Olympia will leave San Francisco about the mid dle of this week, by way of Honolulu, to the Asiatic squadron to relieve the Baltimore as flagship of the station. It is stated at the department that there have been no orders given to the ()lym pia to make a rapid trip across the Pa cific or even a part of the way, and it is probable that the report originated in the talk of the officers who assert that the Olympia is as fast as the Co lumbia. At the navy department it is said that the Olympia is to remain on the Asiatic station for three years and that the department would not risk an injury to her by sending her at full speed across the Pacific.
