SUOUL , Korea , Dec. 10. [ Special Cor
respondence of THU Bur. . ] Just 100 years
before Columbus discovered America , gener
ations before Shnkcspcaro was worn , more
tliun two hundred years before Luther
stirred up Uorimmy with his preaching , 100
years before the first Ulblo was printed ,
when all England was sleeping on straw ,
nml when pins had yet to bo known , the
present dyimaty sat upon its Imperial throne
nml governed its cream-faced , almond-eyed
subjects. TUo blootl that ( lows In the veins
of LI-HI , the present king o Korea , Is of the
same continuous royal stream which has
llowcd over the Korean throne since 189 : . ' .
During that time twenty-nine kind's have
reigned und the power of each has been
more despotic than that of the czar of Russia.
The r yul blood has not weakened in its
flowing , and his majesty of to-day has the
best Qualities of his ancestors and Is ono of
the most progressive of the Asiatic rulura.
I had an nudioaco and an interview with
him to-diiv. It was nt the royal palace , and
I was presented by our minister , Mr. Hugh
A Dinsmoro. Wo rode to the palace in
state. Our conveyances were two Sedan
cliulro , each borne by eight big-hatted
Korean coolica , nnd the whole escorted by
twelve of the king's soldiers. Winding our
way" Through the narrow streets of the cap
ital'wo word carried out into the broad
nvcnuo lends to the palace , and which runs
through Seoul from ono end of it to the
other , dividing It almost In halves. Groups
of white-clad , almond-oyed , yellow-faced
men squaUmg on the streets stopped their
smoking as wo passed. Women with green
clonlcs thrown over their heads seurrlod
along to get out of the Yrny , and a uoblo or
two propped upon his hqrsti by Ins feudal
retainers , told the groom leading the boast
to halt , and did us silent honor as wo went
by. Wo stopped a loomont by the two
mammoth Btona lions , which , on pedestals
perhaps twenty foot high , guard the front
out ranee to the palace enclosure. Ana our
Itoso s nil the while yelling out In Korean to
the people on the streets ;
"Get out of the way , you villains. Don't
you see tnusu great men coming ! "
Till ! I'.U.ACL' .
At least this was Minister Dlnsmoro's
translation of the cry and It was from him
that I learned that the admiring words of
"ynngbanlyang haul" uttered by the men
mi they ran signified that they considered us
as belonging to the nobility. Wo were tola
that wo would bo received at the other gate
of the palace , and our escort carried us by
what Bcomcd to ino more than a mile of
palace wall. The palaces of the king of
Korea , in which he hus now his residence ,
cover us much ground as u good sized farm ,
They comprise about ono hundred and sixty
acres and a nigh , well-built wall of stone
tiled with blue Korean tiling shuts them out
from ordinary gaze. The ( rates to this wall
ore of tine masonry. They have roofs
larpo enough to cover a good sized cottage ,
nud upon tneno'ure ngurcs of Korean gods ,
or of sacred auiuials , Each great stone
pate has three entrances , and the central ono
is never used , except by the king himself or
by the representative ot royalty. Minister
Ulnsmoro is perhaps the only American who
Las over gone through the great frou t ecu-
tral gate. Ho did this when bearing a letter
from President Cleveland to the king of
Korea , und was thus accorded an honor
which in his capacity as minister ho could
not have.
Leaving our chairs and our soldiers at the
outside , for no ono rides into the palace
grounds , we were ushered to-day past the
gorgeous royal guards , nnd escorted by the
two greatest generals in the Korean army ,
wore taken into what might bo called the
hnll of foreign entertainment. It was a long ,
one-story , tiled building with great overhang
ing roof upheld by massive beams , which
showed in all the natural beauty of the wood.
A brussels carpet covered the lloor , tables
like those you eat from nt homo were in the
center of the hall , and upon those were
plates of cakes , which might have been
made in an American baker shop , und ranged
around the table were classes of cham
pagne. Hero I was introduced to the king's
prime ministers , and I drank wino and
clinked glasses with tno secretary of state
and the peifflrals of the Korean army. I
talltcd with them through our intcrpieter ,
who , oy the way , was one of the best in
Korea , I found them both intelligent and
now Timr miKss.
They were all clad In their court drones
and the head of each showed a top-knot ,
shining through its fine Korean cap of horse
hulr , with great wings flapping out at the
sides. They Imcl gowns of line materials of
various colors which fell from the neck
nearly to the feet and their feet were shod
with great Korean boots which made each
look us though ho had the gout and had
wrapped up his feet for the occasion. The
mobt striking feature of their costume was a
stiff hoop-liko belt which ran around the
body ) nst below the arm pits and which was
so big that it canio out about six inches from
the dress. They were about three inches
wide and they were plated with a great num
ber of small squares fastened by joints. On
some of the belts these squares wore of gold ,
on others they wore of filvor nnd on others
they were of green jndo or other precious
Rtoncs. Each quality hud its significance
and Mr. Ho , the American interpreter , who
IB of noble blood , had ono of these court em
blcms about his person.
Another emblem of rank was the button
behind the right cur which fastened
on the hats of the ministers. This was of
gold la Komu cases , and I noted also that
each of those royal dignitaries had n largo
niece of embroidery about as largo as o lady's
luce handkerchief sowed to the front nnd
back of his gown. These squares rested between -
tween the shoulders nnd upon the bronst and
the figures upon them where tigers , In the
case ot military olllccrs. nnd storkx , in case
of the high civil oflicials and ministers of
state. The hats wera especially line , and as
wo sipped our champagne , I was told that
the big flapping wings ut the back of them ,
which look like curs , represent the quick re
ceipt of the orders of thu king and the desire
of the owners to fly In response to them. As
for the minister and myself , wo were of
course in full evening dress , nnd I had n
penile hint before we went to the king thut I
must roniovo my eyeglasses , as spectacles
are in Korea un emblem of rank , und no ono
presumes to ran k before the king.
Our audience had been fixed for 4 o'clock
in the afternoon , an especially early hour ,
on account of a fttross of business und of my
dcslro to depart for China on the morrow.
The business duy of the king of Korea Is , to
use an Irish expression , at night. Ho begins -
gins his work at it o'clock In the afternoon
and closes at about 3 In the morning , His
most important consultations uro now held
under the rays of the electric light , and Ills
hours are practically the sumo us those of a
hard-working newspaper man. It was
promptly nt 4 thut our procession walked
out of the foreign hall and with measured
tread and sober faces solemnly moved on
towards the audience chamber of the king.
The royal palace is a labyrinth of passages
nnd massive ono-story buildings. Wo walked
through long passage ways , walled with
stone , bv red-capped , red-gowned servants ,
past soldiers in gorgeous uniforms und on to
the gate of a large court yard. As we ueored
this , the yellow faces of the ministers grew
more solemn ; their heads wore bent over
and their eyes were cast upon the ground.
Wo had taken off our hats and walked be
hind. Wo thus passed through the gate and
stood in the presence of the king.
Wo were still , however , in tno open air ,
' 1 he king was in his audience chamber across
the court. It was'a low room , perhaps fifty
feet lonfr , raised about five feat above the
ground and reached by three ( lights of steps.
It was open at tlio front and was not moro
than twenty-five feet deep. At the back of
this room and in the center , in front of n
screen and behind a small table , his royal
majesty stood , The ministers preceded us.
their heads going lower and lower ; walked
up the loft stoijs until they reached the lloor
of the room , when they got down on all
fours nnd bobbed their black-winged heads
against the matting , They then took their
station on each side of the king , holding
their heads bent over , for it is against the
law to look upon the fauo of the king , and
during the whole of our interview these
noble ministers raised not their heads once.
It used to bo that no ordinary mortal ever
touched the kine , nnd in the writing of his
name u stroke had to bo omitted out of re
spect to his majesty.
Minister Uinsmoro followed the Korean
ofllcers nnd I walked directly behind. 4B
wo mounted the steps wo solmnly bent over
and bowed to the king. Wo walked ten
steps across the floor , then bowed again nnd
then on until wo stood directly in front of
and not moro than three feet away from his
majesty , und hero wo made our third and
last bow. As wo talked wo did not bond our
heads like the Koreans , but looked str.iight
Into royalty's eyes , smile answering smile
nnd n Korean laugli now and- then coming
from his majesty upon hearing some of our
sentiments which were especially pleasing
to him.
The conversation was carried on by means
of our Interpreter , Mr. IIo , who bent himself
over in shape of a right nnfjjo and thus
bonding , in low tones translated the words
which went back and forth in the two lan
guages during our half hour's talk.
The scene was an impressive ono nnd
thoughts of the pastatid the present crowded
themselves fust upon ono another's heels in
our minds as we glanced about us. At the
right and loft of the king stood General Han
and General Ye , each with a great sword
still sheathed in his arms , and behind tlio
table und pn each side of his majesty , hold
ing him , as it were , by the arms , were two
dull-eyed , stolid-faced , black-gowned , flap-
hutted cunieh's. These men said nothing
during our visit. They are , I am told ,
among the advisors of the king and are with
him in accordance with a custom which
comes down from the Asiatic past. They are
u part of the century gone by , and na I looked
at them my eye caught the Edison electric
light globes hanging overhead and the Wench
cloth upon the tublo beneath. It was the civ
ilization of the west and the cast coming to
gether , and 1 wondered whether tlio Mongol
ian und the Christian would not soon bo kiss
ing each other , i wondered the more , as in
low tones I talked with this ruler , the most
progressive Korean in Korea , ami heard him
ask questions which showed tluit he knew
that a big world existed out side his own ,
and which evidenced u desire to Know the
best that was in It.
13ut let mo toll you how the king looked.
Ho is a man that , would attract attention
anywhere ; not over live feet high. Ho
weighs perhaps ono hundred and twenty
pounds and his bright , black almond eyes
spurklo with intelligence. Ho has , like irfost
Koreans , a very thin mustache and strug
gling chin whiskers of black. IIo has u
pleasant smilo. good , well kept features , nnd
Ills fnco Is oval and the color of a rich Jersey
cream. His hands are very small and doll-
cato und ho has no pompous airs about him ,
His hair was combed In u Korean top-knot
and upon Ins head was the royal cap of dark
blue color. This was of open work and 1 did
not notlcd thut U had the butterfly flaps of
his ministers , Ills costume was a gown of
brilliant rod or scarlet satin which came up
close around tha neck and which bore
upon the breast * a squuro of cm-
broidery , m gold , of the royal
dragon. Ho stood easily during the talk und
be did not look to bo over thirty-two years of
ago , though I urn told ho Is thirty-six. Ho
talked In a simple milliner , In one of the
sweetest voices I have over hoard. Ills tones
were low , but Impressive , und I could see
from the expressions which came nnd went
aeross his countenance , and from the an
swers which ho mudo , that ho is indeed tbo
king of Korea , and that ho is a man of moro
tbuu ordinary ability.
Our minister introduced me and the king
replied that bo wus glad to sop me la Chosen ,
which Is tbo Korean miuto for this country
and which means the fund of "morning
calm. " He asked aio how long I would stay ,
which route 1 had coma , and was anxious to
know the names of the , Countries I expected
to visit. Ho by saying that
he know I was a writer for the newspapers ,
and had learned thut ray \yifc was with mo ,
for he asked , was sho'well ' and was she
pleased with his country. IIo was sorry I
could not stay longer , nnd ho asked as to the
health of President Cleveland and whether
I had soon the president lately.
I replied that ! had bcen'at ' the executive
palace shortly before Bloft , that our ruler
was well and robust , ami that In the grand
east room of his pnlaco I saw the minister
from ( Jliosen , whom th&tprcsldcnt delighted
to honor. As the king hoard this , ho smiled ,
and I told him that 1'nk Chung Yang and
his suite were thought much of at our capital
and that the Americansiand their president
hoped thut the relations between them und
Chosen would grow bettor'and bettor.
The king replied that this was also his
hope. lie liked the Americans and ttie people
ple of his country liked thorn. Ho had boon
pleased with tnoir action toward his kingdom
and the relations between the two countries
had been strengthened snieo the president
had sent out such an able , man as Mr. Uins
moro to be his renrcscntiitive.
At this Minister Dmsmoro bowed nnd the
the king went on to pay a high compliment to
his ability and to his work in' Korea and
as Iced mo to thank the president for sending
him thither.
I replied that our president was well aware
of Mr. Dinsmore's abilities that ho looked
upon him as one of his ablest officials , and it
wus for this reason that ho sent him to
The king appreciated this complimoni and
bowed. Newspapers were then referred to
and the king said thut ho was glad that a
writer had come to his country , und then a
number of international co'mpliments were
passed In which Minister Dinatnore paid an
excellent tribute to the king , showing him
self un accomplished diplomat. The king
hud said thut America was rich but thut
Chosen was poor , when the minister replied
that he thought Korea a fine country und it
had all the elements of grcut gorwth. He
had no doubt if the king would continue to
rule it and should live to carry out his Ideas ,
it would ul sometime be rich and grcut , too.
The king , towards the close of the audience ,
told mo that ho had fixed tlio time for moot
ing mo on the morrow , but upon learning
that I was anxious to go in the morning had
changed the thno to to-day. In an Asiatic
country where a king's mind is supposed to
never cliungo , and where such a concession
would never bo granted to n Korean. 1 up-
predated the compliment convoyed in these
words. Alter tlinnklnir the king for the
audience wo backed out , bowing three times
In about the Maine positions us ut our en
trance. We backed down tlio htops und
again bowed , and then with dlgnllled tread
were ushered out of his majesty's presence.
Wo next took a walk through the palaces ,
going by buildings wjiith looked llko Jap-
unctio temples and the outside of which were
decorated with carvings. Tlio royal cabinet
accompanied us , ouch ono of thu ministers
having two servants to hold up his arms IIH
ho walked , Wo worn taken to the center of
n beautiful little lai < o over rustic bridges ,
where the king has a pagodu-llko summer
house and where thoqiieun und her ladies
come and smoke on a hot summer evening ,
TUB cnow.Si'JiiscK.
Wo then went to an uudicnco with the
crown prince , whom we fofind In n palace
moro gorgeous thun that of the king. Ho is
a young man of about sixteen , though ho is
full grown nnd is taller than Im father. Ho
was gorgeously dressed it ) u gown of crushed
strawberry silk and ho Had two eunlctm beside -
side him just the same its the king. His fuco
had not tlio strength of the king's and as
yet the young man bttsi lUrdly shown , I am
told , the ability of his ftuhnr. Our inter
view was rather tumo. Tfjo crown prince
asked after the president and expressed n
kindly feeling for our country , and the audience -
enco lasted but a few moments.
Wo did not see the queen ? but I doubt not
she saw us , for I am told ulio often sits behind -
hind the screens ia lib ) majesty's councils
and views the procqtdjngs through the
cracks. At a dinner given to the foreigners ,
not long ago , ono of thdgu sts sat very near
u latticed window Bopuratlng the dining-
room from the ono baahtd and ho tolls mo
that the king and the njiemr sat behind this
and that the queen Imd I punched a hole
through the paper withf hor'tlngcr ' , and thut
ho heard the king laugh at'aoino of the jokes
Which she passed about tlio Korean ofllcmls.
The queen of Korea is1 by no means a
figurehead. She belongs to ono of the
greatest families of Hie country , and it is an
open secret that she has at times her voice in
the councils of the king. She is ono
older than the king and is said to bo a very
bright woman. She has an establishment of
her own Ir.sidc tlirso puluca grounds , and
the king , the crown prince and the queen
have each their separate households. The
queen is never seen by men , but she has
several hundred court ladies about her , and
there are a number of euniehs nuiong tlio
regularly appointed ofllcers of tlio court.
The queen dresses , of course , in Korean cos
tume. She wears line silks and she has beau
tiful diamonds , She carries n chutolalno
watch , which Is diamond studded , und she
smokes American cigarettes by the thou
sand. AUVlorcun women smoke und the
majority of/them sntoke pipes. The country
Is in factlar und of smokers , nnd the boys
nnd menir.o' seldom seen without pipes in
their months. The king of Korea has but
ono queerf and ho has only ono lawful wife.
Ills score und a half of concubines , which lie
supports , uro kept , I am told , in another part
of the city. The queen is the only woman
who rules in the palace and she has acoujiof
her own.
in : is A iiusTi.nit.
There are in this palace from 1,503 to 2,030
servants , and these acres of buildings com
prise quite u villuge. Thirty pnlaco pages
attend the king day and night , und the
women servants of the queen are a host.
They have a most extraordinary way of
dressing their hair , and by the adding of
great rolls of false locks to their natural
growth they make a head-dress bigger than
the head which it covers.
Tlio king seldom goes out of the palace ,
though ho is by no means so oxcludo'l as ho
was in times p ist. When lie does the streets
are swept well before hand and a grand
procession accompanies him. Ho some
times rides on horseback , nnd not long ago
he paid a visit to his ancestral tombs fifteen
miles away , which is still the talk of Korea.
IIo is u of progressive Ideas , and his relation
lation to China , which I may further discuss
in another letter , is the subject of much talk
in Asiatic political circles. Li Hung Chang ,
the viceroy and liisniarck of China , accuses
him of being weak and unfit to rule. Prom
my own observation 1 know this to bo fulso ,
and the foreign colony at this Korean
capital unite in saying thut ho Is fur in
advnnco of his race. IIo is clogged with n
feudal nobility und with fumll.v factions
which may break out in rebellion , and ho haste
to go Hlowly. Still ho 1ms pushed Korea fur
to the front , nnd f see in his work the begin
ning of u revolution which may in thno ma
terially change his people. With a royal
fjr-hool for the instruction of young Korean
nobles in the sclcnce-i of Christendom , with a
line of telegraph connecting his country
with the rest of the world , with his at
tempted reorganization of the army , und his
hcnilln ; ; out his embassies to foreign courts ,
he hus certainly taken some steps to the
front. IIo hus. I am told , tlio American

two deputy sheriffs cnrouto to the Sioux
Falls penitentiary to eorvo fifteen years
each ut hard labor , had buarcely any
pleasant reminiscences. Kiclccrson ,
who was tried first , was visibly affected.
As the clerk read tno findings his head
lowered and tears dropped from his
eyes , hastily rising ho readied for a
goblet of water , drained it at a drought
turned toward his seat , nnd in the effort
reeled nnd nearly fell. Ho quickly
gathered 'himself , however , and re
sumed Ids scat , with the hnmc btoic demeanor
meaner maintained during the trial.
Tel fora manifested little or no concern
during the trial , except by the almost
total absence of color from hisfncoand
during the arraignment ho remained
immovable , head erect , and eyes firmly
fixed upon the judge , unaffected by
aught Unit was said , At the conclusion
ho entered seemingly into pleasant con
versation vitb/a friend , us indicated by
continuous smiles.
They were ably defended y a rising
young lawyer of this city named Henry
Frawloy , who comlmttcd the theories of
the proaocution so eloquently and ably
that seldom , if over , has & 'o
much been made out of a forlorn
cuso. liefore sentence was pro
nounced ho offered a motion in arrest
of judgment ( which was overruled by
the court ) , on the ground that the de
fendants wore indicted for an attempt
cojointly to commit robbery in the first
degree , the indictment under section
57ii of the Penal Codo-tho verdict
being guilty in conjunction , as charged
in the indictment.
The Deadwood reduction works , that
all have been watching with great in-
torcbt , is gradually verging to comple
tion , and they will fire up to make a
tvial test to-morrow. In a. conversation
with J'rof. Roswell D. Clark this even
ing , ho informed the writer that all the
machinery is in place , and the works
will start up on the 16th of January ut
the farthest. About twenty-live Hun
dred tons ol ore are in the yards at
present , nnd by the 10th it will swell to
icarly twice that amount , as they are
muling from Houky Basin daily. The
eyes of the mining world are upon thin
plant , u full description of which was
jiven in a former letter , of its success ,
, ho most skeptical huvo no doubts , all
having the utmost conlidonco in the
practical theories of the promoter.
The revolution that will follow thiij
plant will be a now era in the mining
history of the Black Hills and
in fact all mining camps of this conti
nent where refractory ores exist. To
the many holders of Uuby Basin and
Bald Mountain properties , and their
name is legion , the success of this pro
cess will bo the ulti ma thule of tnoic
hopes , for in these districts alone there
is ore enough in sight to supply this
plant for years , while other properties
are daily developing ore of n line qual
ity , as instanced in the recent develop
ments in the Eclipse and Bertha. Both
these properties join the Ruby Boll
that ha $ the distinction of being' ono of
the host developed mines in the camp
and is supplying the reduction works
daily"- with ore. The former has ono
tunnel in , sixty foot in ono , another'
twenty-two foot on the contact , and a
contract has been lot recently and is in
operation for an additional 100 feet.
The latter is not stocked and the own
ers are sinking a bhaft to strike the
same continuous ore body encountered
in the Uuby Boll.
The llomcbtako Mining company paid
on Christmas day dividend No. 125 , of
-0 cents a share , aggregating i&J5,000 ,
making $1100,000 on $ li.40 cents per share
paid tliifTyear.
The Golden Reward and Tornado ,
like the Ruby Boll , are well developed ,
and supply the reduction works with
ore. These mines , for the magnitude of
their deposits , are a marvel to mining
men.Tho Duluth , an old discovery but
lately organized , lies in the track of the
ore belt between the Ruby Basin and
Bald Mountain districts. They have
encountered the same quality of'oro in
their workings that Drcdo'ininato in
thcbo districts.
The Plumii mining company is lo
cated on the great gold bolt of the
Black Hills cast of the Homostako anil
Caledonia , mid is amongst the oldest
locations in the Black Hills. Therefore
they have boon hauling this ore to out
side mills , a distance of from three. to
four miles. Within the last year they
erected a twenty-stamp mill , which has
been running continuously since com
pletion. The monthly cloan-up will
average .18,000. Twenty stamps moro
will shortly bo added to the mill , which
1ms water power enough for IliO stumps.
They have largo bodies of free mill
ing ore similar to the Ilomcstako and
Caledonia mines , hut richer. Negotia
tions are now pending between Super
intendent Hunter and Secretary Palmer
of the Kansas City Mining exchange , to
list this property on that hoard. The
stock is -assessable , and will bo
shortly classed amongst the dividend-
paying properties of the Bolt. Nonu of
their stock has over been on the
market ,
