Nkw Yoijk, Jan. I i, A dispatch to
the Herald from Shanghai says: "Tho
queen of Corca was not murdered In
her palace as reported. The fact Is
known only to a few persons, one be
ing the king, and all have tho strong
est reasons for concealment.
"It will bu remembered that Nov
ember US there was an attack on the
palace, by several Coreans belonging
to the queens party. Mr. Wneber!
the Russian charge d'alVairs, )r.s. Al

grounds of being privy to the plot

was to seize the ministers, oxpol
the Japanese, free the King from
the hitter's Influence ami restore tho
guccu, who was alive. The Russian
secretary of legation was tlic leading

deputed to conduct the'fhieen from
her place of hiding to the palace.
Hie failure of the attempt necessl
tilted the keeping the secret of the

October, the Coreans and Japanese
broke rrrto the pilacc. the guccu,
without speaking to her women, hid
in an outbuilding. SI,,, saw tl. bodies
of her ladies rn waiting. I ragged to the
pyre prepared for them tside, and
watched thu completion of Ihe tragedy
from her hiding place. The queen
was coneoalcd for an hour and a half,
every moment expecting discovery.
She lied at last through a secret pass

changing her dress, made her escape

recent reports of her assassination
have Leerr so exact as to appear
authentic, although tho ollicials
have viewed some of the circum

said that a Japanese sho-hi, or rouHr
killed her, although it is well Known
that the queen Is never -ecu, even by
the foreign representatltcs. It has al
ways seemed inexplicable how one of
thu shoshi secured access to her. The
Japanese government has proceeded,
however, on the theory that the queen
was dead. A special envoy was sent

The king of Corca lias also acted on

was selected by lot. Whatever loat

that there will be u long struggle.
