LONDON , July 21. A dispatch received
hero this afternoon from Shanghai rays that
a rumor Is in circulation there that war
has been declared between China and Japan.
WASHINGTON , July 21. Mr. Tatcno , the
Japanese minister , said today that he did
not credit the Shanghai report of a declara
tion of war between China and Japan. None
of his advices has Indicated the probability
of n conflict , and the latest cablegrams re
cclvcd from his government date back a
week. Had the report ot n declaration of
war emanated from Yokohama or Peking ,
at or near the seat of the respective gov
ernment , it might have some foundation.
But the fact that the report comeF from
Shanghai , a long distance from cither of
the above named places , and where there
are many foreigners and speculators , he
said , was almost convincing proof to him
that the report was Incorrect.
The war rumor found no official confirma
tion at the State department , which natur
ally would bo quickly advised- an evsnt
of this Importance by Minister Dunn at
Toklo. Still , the belief is general In gov
ernment circles that tho" situation is very
critical , and It would not surprise them If It
appeared thn.t the report Is only premature.
Consequently there Is already some specula
tion as to the outcome of a conflict be
tween these two populous nations. Prob
ably the war would begin at sea , and It Is
thought In naval circles that at the start the
Japanese would have the advantage , owing
to the fact that their vessels are In condi
tion for immediate service. But as It stands
the two nations are nearly ev n In their
CHINESE AND JAPANESE NAVIES.
The Chinese navy consists of thirty ves
sels , but many of these are small and ob
solete In typo. Thorc. are five very effective
armored ships , built within the last twelve
years , four being battleships Chen-Yuen ,
' King-Yuen , Lal-Yuon , and ono , Ping-Yuen ,
a coast defense ship. There Is also an
armored wooden gunboat , Tlun-Slng , Those
vessels are armed with Krupp guns , the
Chen-Yuen of 7,430 tons carrying twelve-
Inch rifles. There ar * nineteen cruisers car
rying Armstrong and Krupp guns , two tor
pedo cruisers and several small gunboats.
The Japanese navy consists of thirty-two
vessels ot all kinds. Including five armored
ships , the Fu-soo , Illyol , Ken go , Rio Jo
and Tschlyoda. Tucsa range In tonnage
from 1,500 to 37,000 and are armed with
Krupp guns , lighter than the Chinese battle
ships carry. There are fourteen cruisers of
good slzo and well armed with Krupp and
Canel guns , seven gunboats of small tonnage -
nago , three coast defense ships , with twelve-
Inch French rifles and a halt dozen corvettes
and a few training ships. But
this balance of resources docs not
extend to the army , In which
China has an enormous advantage in num
bers. In times of peace the Chinese army
number 300,000 , to Japan's 73,000 , but on n
war footing the Chinese strength Is 1,000,000
men , while the Japanese forces under llko
conditions number only 230,000 , with 29,500
mounted police. In view of these figures ,
military experts here believe that while
Japan might obtain a temporary advantage
In the early stages of a war with China she
would very likely to bo ultimately over
whelmed by sheer force of numbers.
REPORT IS PREMATURE.
SHANGHAI. July 21. The report that
war has been declared between China and
Japan Is not yet confirmed , but China Is
preparing for war. The Chinese are blockIng -
Ing the northern passage of the Yang-Tso-
Klang , the great river of China. Incoming
vessels are thus compelled to pass nearer
the Woosung forts. Telegraphic communi
cation with Pckln has been stopped on ac
count of floods ,
Japan has chartered all the Mitsui Busman
company's ships , In addition to the Flxk-tn
already chartered from the Witsen Kalsaha
company. Japan has prohibited Iho departure
ot the. Yuscn hteamers.
YOKOHAMA. July 21. The Corcan gov
ernment lisa consented to thq reforms pro
posed by Japan. British and United States
marines hnvo been landed at Seoul , the capItol -
Itol of Corca , In order to protect the British
and American leg-itions , China has requested
that Japanese warships be not allowed to
enter the Chinese treaty ports.
Japan , replying to the request of China
in regard to Japanese warships , has replied
that she maintains the right to enter these
ports at any time. The attitude ot the
population generally Is warlike. It has
been learned hero that 12,000 Chinese troops
bava received orders to proceed with all
possible dispatch to Corcu.
.1 KKFECT OF THE ANNOUOEMENT.
I "WASHINGTON , July 21. The announce
ment that Coreu had consented to the re
forms proposed by Japan caused officials of
the Japanese legation hero to express the
Iiopo that this would end the strained rela
tions between Japan and China. This de
pends , however , It was said , on whether
China Gave her assent In the matter and
llowed the proposed reforms to be Insti
tuted. China , It U stated at the Japanese
legation , has three times refused her assent
jto co-oporato with Japan In Instituting the
reforms desired In Corca. Now that Corca has
agreed to the reforms , It Is suggested that
'Japan ' , assisted by Corea , can go ahead and
remedy tbo existing condition ot affairs.
No specific statement ot the reforms de
sired has been received as yet at the Japan
ese legation hero , but their general tenor Is
known , and they Include changes In the
system ot taxation anj the removal of
restrictions that now exist on trade. At
this tlmu , U U said ut the legation , thp
erlculiural and mechanical Interests of
Corca arc absolutely subject to tlio whttr
of local officials who have It In their powci
to make arbitrary regulations that cause
trouble and frequently populir uprisings
The fiscal methods of the country arc salt !
to need radical reforms. Japan does the
banking business of ( ho country , nnd the
government Is frequently called upon U
press the Corcans for money duo the Japan'
esc , and which , It Is asserted , should bi
easily collected by the courts.
WANT THH JUDICIARY REFORMED.
Japan also wants the Corean Judlclarj
system reformsd , as under that now In vogue
cruel and unusual punishment Is Indictee1
and Inquisitorial methods prevail to the In
jury of Japanese business men. The Japan
ese furthermore want assurances of greater
liberty and entity of travel throughout Corea ,
Japanese newspapers received nt the legation
hero recently show with but few exceptions
the consensus ot editorial opinion Is favorable
to the attitude assumed by the govcrnmenl
In the pending controversy.
At the Corean legation the minister was
shown a copy of the dispatch. The minister
docs not speak English , but through lilf
secretary ho said that he did not believe
Corea had done as was stated. Japan hail
not the right to Interfere with the Internal
affairs of the country. No recent telegraphic
Information has been received at the legation
A diplomat who Is familiar with the
troubles existing between Japan nnd China
today called attention to the fact that In the
note which the latter country sent to Japan
notifying her that she ( China ) had sent troops
to Corea , China said , In effect , that It hail
"sent assistance to their tributary state. "
This , the diplomat referred to said , was con
trary to the declaration made by China and
Japan In the Klngs-tlen convention of 1885 ,
when both countries declared It to be their
mutual desire to protect and maintain the
autonomy of Corea.
LATEST MAIL lADVICES.
SAN FRANCISCO , July 21 Ne vs advices
from Yokohama to June 30 , received today
on the steamer City of Rio do Janeiro , con
tain but few developments In the Corcan
Imbroglio that have not been covered by
cable. June 3 tlio Corean minister tc
Japan called on the Japanesa minister ol
foielgn affairs and announced that ho was
about to take his leave to report to his gov
ernment the feeling and policy of Japan
towards Corea. At about the satno time , as
a result of a cabinet council , attended by
the emperor of Japan , the Japanesa govern
ment dispatched Mai Ma Sao , chief coun
selor of the foreign office , to Corca as spe
cial messenger of the government. He car
ried full Instructions to the Japanese min
ister In Corea. The native press reports
that tlio attempt to Induce Otorl. Japanese
minister at Corea , to withdraw the Japan
ese troops having been unsuccessful , Voceroy
LI telegraphed directly to Count Ito , asking
him to withdraw the troops , and that It
was this extraordinary request that caused
the meetings of the Japanese council In the
presence of the emperor on June 22 and 23 ,
It Is claimed the Japanese government do-
cldeJ to positively refuse the request.
The native papers also announce that the
Russian minister wrote to the Corean min
ister of foreign affairs on June 12 , declar
ing that the Corean rebellion was not to
be feared ; that the rebels nro simply Ig
norant Coreans and that If they should
enter Zoul and threaten the destiny of the
state friendly powers would not look on
with folded arms. This gives rise again to
the reports that Russia and France are
ready to Interfere In the event of more
Relative to the rebellion the native papers
report that the rebels are more than hold
ing their own In Genshu and that they arose
so powerful that the weak government
troops dare not attack them.
WOMEN AND CHILDREN SENT HOME.
A Corean newspaper of Juno 1C announces
warlike preparations by the Chinese In Zoul
and Junchan , who were preparing to send
their women and children to the homo coun
try. Those preparations were made under
official Instructions. On the morning of
Juno 22 the Chinese government sent 6,000
or 7,000 soldiers from the coast of laku , In
six men-of-war , wh.ch steamed up the Taidc
Ko for Ping Yang , about fifty miles from
Zoul. The preparations of China to estab
lish a force of 12,000 soldiers In Corca caused
the Japanese council on the 23d of Juno to
resolve that the number of Japanese soldiers
to bo sent to the peninsula should reach 10,000
and bo followed by more if the movements
of China warranted It. It Is also reported
that Russia intends to send 1,000 troops to
Junsan , probably to proceed overland to Zoul.
It Is claimed also that the Chinese government
has been smuggling many soldiers Into Corea
In citizens , ' guise , and that Chinese munitions
of war have been sent In ostensibly as Co
rcan army supplies.
At present there are at Jenchuan nlno Chi
nese men-of-war , nlno Japanese men-of-war
and ono each of American , French nnd Rus
When the steamship sailed it was claimed
there were 5,000 Japanese troops nt Jenchuan
and 1,000 at Zoul. It was also reported that
1,000 moro had left Toklo on Juno 15. The
Japancso officers , It Is said , have been In
structed that If the Chinese should show
the slightest signs of attack they must be
prepared not to fetnnd on the defensive , butte
to attack and put the enemy to rout. The
cnpms''s commanders have Instructed their
soldiers to sleep In their uniform ! ! and to
bo prepared for engaging at n , moment's no
Kato , chief counselor of Japanese foreign
affairs , v/ho was sent to Corea with Impor
tant Instructions to the Japanese minister ,
wai due to arrive at Zoul the day follow
ing the departure of the steamer City of
Rio do Janeiro from Yokohama. It was
bcllnvcd his negotiations would terminate
the dispute either In peace or actual hos
tilities. The conditions laid down by the
Japanese government are said to'be to the
following effect :
DEMANDS OF THE JAPS.
That It Is out ot the question that both
Japan and China should co-operate either
with regard to the suppression of the rcbeh
or a reform of political affairs , railway man
agement , etc. , so as to nmko Corea a purely
Independent country , which Is necessary for
maintaining the balance of power In the
Orient , consequently It China would not agree
to the plans now In course ot negotiation
Japan would have to carry out these things
herself. The negotiations are said to have
been made with the Corean government
and later with the Chinese minister. It
Is announced also that the Japjnce have
demanded ot the Corean government that
both the home administration And diplo
matic affairs should be extensively .reformed ;
that communication and transportation bo
preserved and facilitated ; that a * the pro
tection nt Japanese residents Is most neces
sary In bringing about these reforms Jap
ancso troops could not bo readily withdrawn ,
yet , It the Corean government wishes the
Japanesa troops to bo withdrawn at the
same time as the reforms are commenced ,
China should first be asked to withdraw

BERLIN , July 21. Considerable Interest Is
taken here In the tariff legislation of the
United States. It was learned that negotia
tions are proceeding between Berlin and
Washington In order to prevent the possi
bilities of a commercial war. The decision
of congress In regard to the sugar schedule
Is awaited with great anxiety , many of the
newspaper articles on the subject condemn
ing the stand taken by the senate. People
In this country are already discussing the
possible reprisals which Germany could make
In the event of her suffering through Ameri
can tariff legislation. For Instance , the Ham
burger Correspondenz.a newspaper \\cll known
as getting much of Its news from high ofll-
clal sources , proposes In case a duty Is im
posed upon raw sugar that Germany should
raise the duty on American petroleum. Hut
in this case the proposition contained in the
article alluded to originated in the mind of
the editor. The government desires that
nothing should occur to prejudice the good
relations between the two countries , and It
Is not likely anything but very grave neces
sity could mar this good feeling.
As an evidence of Emperor William's de
sire for peace and his wish to share the
feelings of the peopleof France , the great
fall parade of Grison , which since September ,
1871 , has been fixed for the anniversary of
the surrender of Napoleon HI. at Sedan
( September 2 , 1780) ) , has this year been or
dered to take place on August IS. The em
peror's attitude of conciliation Is resented
by a large section of the people , who claim
the right to rejoice on the aay they consider
as marking the birth of the German empire ,
without caring whether It pleases Franco or
BISMARCK'S HEALTH NOT SO BAD.
Prlnco Bismarck is in better health than
Is generally bslleved. His trip from Schoen-
hausen to Varzln lasted eleven hours , the
last three of which was during the night.
He traveled In a carriage , but the exertion
does not > eem to have had any 111 effect upon
him. The ex-chancellor made seven speeches
while enroute , the most remarkable of them
being tUe one which closed with his request
for "three cheers for Berlin. " The Berlin
press expressed amazement at this action
upon the part of Prlnco Bismarck and com
mented upon the fact that this was the
first time for years that ho had said a
friendly word for the capital. The ex-
chancellor 1ms always shown himself a fierce
opponent ot Berlin , whlcli returned men to
the Reichstag who opposed his policy.
The beer boycott continues , although the
socialists are losing ground. The struggle
Is now assuming the character of a decisive
battle between the bourgcolsc and the
socialists. The latter are coercing their ad
herents In every possible manner. The
socialist election committee has resolved to
exclude from Its support every one shown to
be In the habit of drinking boycotted beer.
On the other hand the beer saloons have
ceased taking the Vorwaerts , the. organ of
the socialists. More than 1,000,000 marks
have been contributed to fight the boycott
by assisting the saloon keepers. Men like
Krupp have contributed largely to the funds.
The dally amounts received average 50,000
marks , while the socialist boycotters com
mand about 500 marks dally.
The woman from St. Petersburg who was
taken to the Moablte hospital suffering from
cholera Is recovering. The disease from
whlcli she was suffering was a mild typo
and there Is no fear that it will spread In
this city. More alarm Is felt at the possi
ble inroad of the disease from the eastern
frontier. The raftsmen descending the
Vistula from Russian Poland are a constant
source of danger. But the greatest precau
tion is exercised all along the frontier. In
spite of this fact , however , five deaths from
cholera and ono fresh case have been re
ported from that part of the country today.
Unless this condition ot affairs ceases
within the next month , the Imperial
maneuvers about Kralgsbsrg In September
will be postponed.
FINANCIAL ESTIMATES WERE OFF.
The Imperial budget for the year ending
March 1 shows a surplus of 12,500,000
marks , Instead of 1,250,000 as estimated.
This Is In splto ot the fact that the army
and navy expenses were underestimated to
the extent of 10,000,000 marks. The surplus
Is due to large Increases of revenue from
the poatofllce and the Imperial taxes.
An official statement shows that Immigra
tion from Hamburg. Bremen , Stettin , Rot
terdam , Antwerp nnd Amsterdam Is falling
oft continuously and rapidly. The whole
number of Germans forwarded to the United
States by six lines was 3,339 for the month
ot June , against 8,753 for June , 1S93 , and
the outlook for July Is even worse.
Major Wlssman , the distinguished German
explorer , has arrived hero In the best of
health. In an Interview he said ho hopes
to return to Africa at the earliest possible
date. He considers the victory of the
Italians at Kassala to bo of the greatest Im
portance to all nations.

elties In theatrical * .

the court are so frequent as to no longer
attract much attention. For Instance , on
Wednesday last the j(4vo ( Rcszkes were com
manded to appear ntiwimlBor castle during
the afternoon. They ( obeyed , naturally , and
sang a selection ot sojjos and duets from va
rious operas. Tostl presided at the piano.
The same evening Slgfrlcd Arnoldson , Ben
Oavles and Slg. Arcona sang before the
queen , the czarewltcA and other members
of the royal family and their guests , selec
tions from Cowcn's "Slgna. " Cowcn played
the piano. The queen personally arranged
the program for the De Reszkes.
The princess of Wales , accompanied by a
brilliant suite , was present on Tuesday labt
at Sarah Bernhardt's performance of "La
Femme do Claude. " The audience applauded
vigorously , and Mmo. Bernhardt was re
called repeatedly. But the enthusiasm dis
played was called forth by the wonderful
art of the great actress and not by the play.
E. S. Wlllard has extended his season at
the comedy theater , where J. M. Barrle's
"Tho Professor's Lovq Story , " In which Mr.
Wlllard is Prof. Goodwlllle , has been drawIng -
Ing better than at first expected.
Charles Wyndham certainly does his best
to make the rehearsal of his company as
agreeable as possible. When Lady Violet
Grevillo's play was being prepared for pro
duction at the Criterion , he took the entire
company down to Brighton for several days
and rehearsed In a private salon at the
Metropole. Now , however , ho has gone one
better than this ; he has had a tiny stage
fitted up In the garden of his own house ,
and It Is on these miniature boards , shaded
from the sun , though In the open air , that the
first rehearsals of Henry Arthur Jones' new
play , due at the Criterion early In the
autumn , are taking place. At ordinary re
hearsals It Is almost Impossible to get any
thing like a comfortable meal , but nt Mr.
Wyndham's "Theater Royal Back Garden"
the creature comforts of the performers are
most carefully looked after by Mrs. Wynd
London Is now witnessing the Debacle of
theatrical season. Last jilght saw the final
performance ot a successful play "Money"
at the Garrlck.
LYCEUM LOANED FOR CHARITY.
Henry Irving has lent the Lyceum for a
special matinee next ( Monday by members of
the Actors' association and others , among
thosp who are to appear being Sarah Bern
hardt , who , during ho'r present stay , has .sev
eral times given her services In the aid of
charity. The program Is to conclude with
the play scene from "A Midsummer Night's
Dream , " with George Anson , E. J. Tonnen ,
J. T. Shine , Harry Paulton , Lionel Rynold ,
Fanny Brough , Carlotta Addlson and Beatrice
Lamb In the principal parts. The supers
will also all be prominent t actors nnd
actresses. Performances-of this"JtlniT always
cause as much amusement to the"performers"
as to the audience , and gagging Is the order
of the afternoon.
Twenty years ago managers would as soon
have thought of flying as of undertaking a
tour around the whole English-speaking
world. Now such enterprises are of quite
common occurrence. Early In September
George Edwards sends to America a power
ful burlesque company , whose tour will open
at a ten-weeks' season In New York. Their
principal piece Is "A Gaiety Girl , " which
has had such a phenomenal success at the
Prince of Wales. But "In Town" will also
be played. After visiting the chief towns
In the United States , the company will sail
from San Francisco for Australia , and will
not return to England until July , 1895 , so
that the tour will last altogether ten months.
Several Interesting engagements have been
made by George Edwards In connection with
the English Touring company of "A Gaiety
Girl. " Nina Martlno of "La Petite Parls-
enne" fame , will play the Important part of
Mlna , and two sons of Nelllo Farren will also
be In .the cast. Miss Martlno Is now having
dancing and fencing lessons at the expense
of the management.
As un Instance of nineteenth century
precocity It may be mentioned that Sydney
Elllsen , the stage manager at the Prince
of Wales , Is barely out ot his "teens. "
Maud Hobson , who played the part of the
"Gaiety Girl" In London , but who will not go
to America , has Just had her portrait
painted by Markhara Sklpworth. She Is
seated In a gilt chair , behind which Is a
background of hanging tapestry. Her
dress , which Is cut low , Is of white and yel
low satin , embroidered with gold and edged
with sable. The Jewels she Is wearing are
all turquoise , the comb In her hair , her
necklace and bracelets consisting of the
most handsome and valuable stones. She
Is worshipped by the "Jeunesso doro" of
London , and scarcely a day passes but she
receives extravagant presents of jewelry ,
many of them sent by anonymous devotees ,
EDWARD TERRY COMING OVER.
Edward Terry , who by his performance
In "King Kodak" showed that , despite long
disuse , his burlesque hand has lost none of
Its cunning , starts on a provincial tour
with his own company on the 13th prox. Ho
will return to town In December with two
new plays , and after , their production It
Is MQt unlikely that he will set forth on a
prolonged tour In "America , Australia and
Even In the best , regulated theaters lu
dicrous stage mishaps are not unknown. Amore
moro amusing Instance of disillusioning , duo
to the theatrical su pratltlon that It Is nec
essary to liavo a. cut "behind , " Is reported
from the provinces. The great scene In
the "Middleman" Is , of , course , In the third
act , when Cyrus Blenknrn breaks open his
oven and finds that lie has discovered the
long-lost secret of making a certain old
ware. In the beginning of the act Blenkarn
dwells at length upon the excessive heat to
which the clay has been subjected , and he
has to wait a long time before the oven
has sufficiently cooled to enable him to pul |
down the bricks. The actor had Just
reached the final point In the Ecctio and
the bricks were beginning to clash upon
the floor , when a large , black cat appeared
at the orifice and leaped upon the stage.
The result produced on the audience by
this unrehearsed effect can bo readily
Oscar Berlnger has written a two-act
play , "The Plea of His Story , " founded on
a story by Morley Roberts , who started
life by running away from an uncongenial
homo' and serving for months before the
mast. Morley Roberts Is a great favorite
it the Authors' club , to whose members he
often relates his adventures. He Is too
much of a rolling stone , however , over to
make a great name. At present he Is be
lieved to be In San Francisco , employed as
a detective , but his friends have had no
news ot him lor mouths past.

FKHOONIA , Knn. , July 21. It was a
battery of big guns that Ilrcil the opening
salute of the Third district republican cam-
pa'gn here today. Ex-Senator Ingalls , Major
Morrlll , Hon. Bernard Kelly and Colonel
Dick Illuc spoke before vast audiences In
the afternoon and evening. The brilliant
Ingalls was received with the cnthuslaitlc
ovation always accorded him. He said In
the course of a two hour's address :
"I am here today to make a republican
speech. I responded to Senator Klrkp.u-
rlck's Invitation because ho is the same
kind of a republican that I am , without
variableness or shadow of turning. Your
chairman In Introducing me said that I had
retired from public life. This Is a mistake.
I was retired. My retirement was purely
Involuntary. While I probably have a *
much cause as any one to find fault with
populists , I have always said that the cam
paign waged against me , unjust as It was ,
was the most scientific on record In Ameri
can politics. It resulted In throwing me
higher Into the atmosphere than anything
che that has been recorded since the cow
jumped over the moon. "
Getting-Into his speech , Mr. Ingalls said
that there Is one thing worse than a popu
list ; It Is a democrat. The populists' have
fallen from grace , but the democrats fur
nish an Illustration of original sin and total
"Whom the Lord lovcth he chastencth.
Therefore wo have this epoch of democratic
and poptili t rule. I want to declare my
belief here that for the condition In wh.ch
the state finds Itself today the democracy
Is strictly and- wholly responsible. Demo
crats of Kansas have always been ready
to make Illicit alliances to thwart the suc
cess of the republican party , and whatever
bs their professions today I want to say
to you that In the legislative and congres
sional contests " "you linvo exactly the same
opponents ask heretofore. The great ques
tion before the American people Is not the
tariff or silver , but whether we are to have
any government In this country at all. We
want to know whether this Is a government
of law or a government of men. This 1
a question for the republican party , bscause
every other party has shown Itself Incom
petent to settle It. "
Mr. Ingalls spoke at length of the recent
strike , denouncing his own detention In
Chicago as a prisoner of war. lie spoke
most bitterly against the attempt of workIngmen -
Ingmen to prevent others from accepting
labor at wages they had refused. Ho re
garded such action as an abrogation of In
alienable rights that made the constitution
seem Ironical and the government no better
than If dispensed by a czar.
"No ruler In the old world , " he said ,
"could have inflicted such a condition upon
the people without precipitating a revolution

2,000 persons were present , and passed reso
lutions protesting against the formation of
the republic , claiming that President Cleve
land had not yet answered the petition sent
by Lllluokalanl to bo restored to the throne.
Copies of this resolution were sent to the rep
resentatives ot foreign governments with the
request that they should not recognize the
republic. It had no effect In that way , how
ever , as all these representatives have rec
ognized it with the exception of Minister
Woedhouse , the English minister resident ,
who simply stated that he would Inform his
government of the change. On the evening
of the 4th the anncxatlonlsts held a big mass
meeting for the purpose of ratifying the new
constitution. H was a most enthusiastic
meeting. The Fourth was celebrated In
American style , the double holiday making it
peculiarly a day for Jollification for Ameri
cans. Captain of the Marines Cochrane of
Philadelphia delivered the oration. Ho
showed himself an annexallonlst , opening his
speech by saying that he lioped soon to be
able to call those present fellow citizens.
Throughout his oration ho lauded the provi
sional government and its supporters. Ad
miral Walker and his staff were present , and
the admiral evidently Indorsed the speech of
Captain Cochrane. He was aho at the CXCCIK
live building at the time ot the promulgation ,
though not officially. Tha republic having
bcea launched. Minister Thurston will prob
ably return to Washington soon. He was not
present on thp Fourth , r.avlng gone to the
One of the royalist papery , the Holomtm ,
which has been u rabid supporter of the ex-
qitesn. has changed Its policy and Is ad
vising all royalists to take the oath of alle
giance to the republic and acknowledge that
the cause of the cx-quccn Is dead.
A royalist commission , consisting of Samuel
Parker , II. AV. Wlddeman and John A. Cum
mins , leaves for Washington on the Rio
Janeiro this afternoon. It Is their intention
to go to Washington at once nnd try to ob
tain an interview with the president with
the Idea of forcing him to give them an
answer as to what he Intends to do In the
Hawaiian matter. Their expenses have been
paid by prominent royalists hero and they
carry a secretary with them. I'aiker and
Cummins are half Hawaiian , but Wlddeman

WASHINGTON , July 21. Representative
Rellly of the committee on Pacific railways
made u report to the house today on the bill
to adjust the- debts ot tlia Central ami
Union Pacific inltways. A review of the
legislation affecting the ro.uls from 1802 Is
given In the report. The purpose of the
committee. It Is captained , Is not only to
devise some plan that will Insure the pay
ment of the government claims , but would bo
final In Its operations and dissolve the com
plicated relations that have heretofore existed
between the government and these com
panies. The bill Isaid to differ from for
mer bills , which contemplated the extension
or funding of the entire Indebtedness , the
first mortgage ascll as the government
debt , and applied the amount In the sinking
fund to the credit of the companies on their
Indebtedness to the government. It is
pointed out both the first mortgage bonds
and the government bonds bear C per cent
Interest , which the committee believes It
is impossible for the companies to meat ns
It has been In the past. Interest on the
first mortgage bonds has basn paid regularly ,
but the principal of the government bonds
has been more than doubled by the ac
cumulation of Interest In excess of all re
imbursement and no ono expects the com
panies to pay their1 debts to the government
Annual interest on the first mortgage has
amounted to over $2,000,000 n year for the
Union Pacific and $1,000,003 for the Central
Pacific and it seemed to the committee that
If the first mortgage was to bo continued
With priority of lien it would be futile to
attempt an adjustment on that basis. Ac
cordingly the committee directed thejr efforts
to a plan looking to the extinguishment'of1
the lien , and by the bill the amount In the
sinking fund h applied to that purpose ,
upon condition the. com pan I. & shall provide
In a manner satisfactory to the secretary
.of. the treasury for \io \ ] payment of the ro-
malmKr of the bonds and the discharge
of the first mortgage ; for giving the
government a first , Instead of a second , lien
on the properly ; a disposition of the sinking
fund considered more advantageous to tlio
Unltd States and Its application as a credit
on Ha own debt.
FIXING THE AMOUNT OF THE DEBT.
The go\ eminent must continue to pay
Interest on the subsidy bonds until their
maturity and the bill provides for the
method of ascertaining the amount of the
doht dua the government on January 1 ,
1S95 , and that the bonds ot the companies
to run fifty years shall bo given for the
amount , bearing 3 per cent Interest , pay
able homl-anmmlly , with soml-annual and
gradually increasing payments on the prin
cipal. The bill contemplates settling the
extent of the government lien and Includes
in the moitgaco the vnluablo t'rmlnal prop
erties of the Union Pacific at Omaha , Kan-
bas City and other points , estimated to ba
Theio are other provlblons covering the
payment of dividends by the companies BO
long as the United States shall own any
bonds , for payment for transportation serv
ices , and for preserving other rights of 'tho '
In c.iso of default In respect to any obliga
tion for which any lien exists In favor > ot
the United States upon any property of any
other companies , or In case any proceed
ings are brought by holders ot any other
Hen tlio attorney general Is authorized
to enforce the claim nnd foreclose any lion
of the United States by sale or otherwise ,
and If by sale the property shall be sold to
the highest bidder for a sum less than the
amount of tlio dtbt duo to the United
States , and all Interest thereon to the date
of the confirmation of sale. The attorney
general Is authorized to bid such amount In
order to protect tl.o government. The
court of appeals of the District of Columbia
Is given Jurisdiction over legal proceedings.
Unless aoino adjustment Is effected , Mr.
Rollly's proposition concludes , foreclosure
scums Inevitable , and that might Involve the
necessity of the government being com
pelled , In order to protect Itself , to pay ofl
the first mortgage , thereby Involving an
additional outlay of public money on tha
roads ot over forty millions above the sinkIng -
Ing fund , which would make the aggrcgalo

V/VSIIINCTON. July 21. When Iho sun-
ate on Friday adjourned over until Monday
It was understood this was done with the
hope ot making pcaco In the democratic
parly by patching up the difference ) on the
tariff hill. Among other plans which noma
of the democratic senators had In view was
one ot getting Senator Vllaa to withdraw his
motion to have the senate recede from no
much of Its sugar amendment as provides
a duty of one-eighth of a cent a pound on
refined sugar. Accordingly Mr. Vllas waa
appealed to by a largo number of dcmocratlo
senators to relieve the senate of the om-
jarrassmont which the offering of the mo
tion has caused by not Insisting upon the
amendment. This ho has declined to do.
[ Jo said late today that he had no Intention
ot withdrawing It , "I shall let the motion
bo decided upon Its merits , " ho said , "or
call the chair to rule upon It , but I shall
not withdraw It. I did not Introduce U with.
a view ot throwing n. bomb , and If It had
that effect U was not tlio result of my pur-
