from the Country.
WASHINGTON , Sept. II. A telegram was
received at the Japanese legation this morn-
ng to the effect that an Important treaty
bas been negotiated between Corea and Japan
ivhlch authoritatively defines the relations ol
the two countries toward each other and
ioward China. The object of the treaty Is
itated In the preamble to be the mutual desire
> n the part of the emperor of Japan and
Ihe king of Corea to definitely fix and deter
mine the attitude of e-ach country toward
the other with a. view to clbarly elucidating
the existing relations between Japan and
Corel , which has been created by the re
quest -which the Corean government has
made to the Japanese government to compil
China , to evacuate Corea. To secure conSorted -
Sorted action for the more effective accom
plishment of this object , the treaty ot
alliance between the two countries \\tta
ilgncd at Seoul on the 2Gth ot August , by
Mr. Oterol , the envoy of Japan , and the
Corcan minister of foreign affairs.
The treaty consists of three articles.
Article 1 deflnts the object of the alliance
lo be the strengthening and perpetuation of
the Independence ot Corea as on autonomous
state ami the promotion of the mutual In
terest ot Japan and Corea by compelling
the Chinese forces to withdraw fioni Corea
mil by obllglne China to abandon her claim
ot the right to dominate the affairs of thut
Article 2 binds the Japanese government
lo carry on warlike operations against China ,
both offensive and defensive ; the Corean
government is bound by the article to afford-
the Japanese forces every possible facility
In their movements , mid to furnish them
with supplies of provisions at a , fair re
muneration , so far as such supplies may
be needed.
13y article 3 It Is provided tlint the treaty
shall terminate so soon as the treaty of
peace shall have been concluded by Japan
nltli China.
Mr. Kurlno , the Japanese minister , talked
to in Associated pras.j ropoilor 'oduy re
garding the new treaty between Japan nnd
"We have nothing but the announce
ment of the treaty , " said he. "but my In
ference from Its terms Is that U will prove
highly advantageous to Core. ! , Th-re has
existed there , under Chinese auspices , the
most corrupt system of Rovcrnnicnt known.
The constant Intrigues ot China there have
been a threat to the peace of
the east. The Japanese govern
ment has desired the settlement of
this question only for the peace of the cast.
It l > as been entirely without cxp- elation of
territorial aggrandizement or exercise of
suzerainty of Corea ,
"With the assurance ot autonomy to Corea.
which Is the design of tbls treaty , thre will
lie opportunity for great Inipiovemcnta In
her system of government , Internal adminis
tration nrtd other affairs. Already she has
advanced from the condition of the rule
of an Individual Inlluenced by China , and
has a cabinet of felt members and a. prime
minister to whom the ruler lnr ks for advlca
and guidance. Th'a change was made under
the ad\lco ot the Japanese representative
nt Seoul. "
Mr. Kurlno said he Old not think the
treaty could be called a step toward a peace
ful settlement with China , ns China was
tenacious on sentimental grounds ot her
claim of su/eralnty. China might , he
said , to have put an end ta dlfllculttes before
now by consentlntj t soma Improvements
111 Corcan affairs. The Improv-emcnt in
government Institutions In Coreait , would
bo admitted , require foreign advisors and
counselors , and these might be Japanese
or might bo other foreigners. He dM not
admit the termination of the present treaty
by making peace with China could open 'ho
nay for n revival of Japan's ohl claim of
suzerainty , which be said Japan had ex
pressly relinquished and would put herself
In as bad a position as , China by renew
ing It.
"Corea , und r the Inadequate government
that China gives her , " ho says , "Iseak
and other governments , such as Russia , are
constantly threatening lo cotno in ami seize
a portion ot her territory ami thus cause war
In the east. A guarantee of her autonomy
nlll guard against this. All the great pauers
will be Interested together In protecting
her from oiitsldo * attack.

LONDON , Sept. 11. A dlspaich to the
Times from Wel-IIal-Wcl lodny says that a
commission composed ot foreigners after ex
amining the Incidents of the naval fight ol
July 26 declares that the Japanese were the
aggressors , The Chinese , the commission
adds , were careful to avoid the appearance
ot provocation , but the Japs waylaid the
Chinese , selecting a good position. The Chi
nese senior ship escaped , making a running
fight , greatly to the danuigo of her pursuer.
the second Chinese ship fought until lice
ammunition was exhausted and two othei
guns were destroyed. The same morning
It appears , the Japanese arrived from Seoul
and attack the Chinese at Yashan. Thete
operations were evidently ell concerted ,
The Chinese lleet , according to the Times
dispatch , la now collected at Wel-IIat-Wel
and is In perfect fighting trim The Chin ,
Yuen has been repaired and Is recrultinf
eeampii freely. An excellent esprit de corps
exists among the Chinese sailors nnd the )
are awaiting- orders to enable them to assert
the supremacy of China In Corcan waters ,
Continuing , tha Times correspondent cables
that both the Chinese ami Japanese urmlei

t8E have ordered the Coreans to cut thcli
hair as a token of subjection. The Ccream

Tlnon , "that the revolution would spread , and
it was thought the war might bo long and

reason for this was that the Dutch govern

riTTSIJURG , Sept. 11. Forty thousand
men win fought to save the union marched
through the cities ol Plttsburg and Alle
gheny today. The old familiar war tunes
to which they nnil their comrades rushed
to victory or lo death filled the air nnd
echoed bick from the surrounding hills.
Tlio music made their hearts beat as In the
ft rrlng times cf thirty years ago , nnd
brought the flush of patriotism and courage
to their checks.
Dut wlillfl they stepped out boldly and
bravely they could not straighten their bent
forms nor conceal their gray hairs and fur
rowed checks. They carried no > heavy
rllle with glittering bayonet , but aided their
nged limbs \ > lth walking canes , while here
nnd there In the line of blue was some ccin-
rade on crutches. They marched no more
beneath the yawning nuzzles ot frowning
cannon , but past battery after battery of
bright cyca , while the fair enemy waved
white handkerchiefs and applauded with
shrill , BMcetolce3. . On every street cor
ner and vacant lot rose tier after tier of
human faces , and as the veterans passed
cheer after cheer greeted them. Every
window clong the route , with flre escapes
and rcof tops , was crovded , while the street
walks were packed sclldly from the building
line to the v.1re ropes stretched along the
curb to prevent Interference with the free
movement of the parade of the Grand Army
of the Republic.
At 10:30 : o'clock the parade started from
the historic Monongahela house on the banks
of the river from It takes Its name.
First came company A , second battalion
naval reserves. National guards , guard of
honor to Commandcr-ln-Chlof Adams. Then
followed the departments of the Grand Army
ot th Republic In the following order :
Illinois , Wisconsin , Ohio , Now York , Con
necticut , Massachusetts , New Jersey , Maine ,
California , Rhode Island , New Hampshire ,
Vermont , Potomac , Virginia and North Car-
olln.i , Maryland. Nebraska , M'chigan. Iowa ,

Alaska , Arkansas , New Mexico , Utah , Ten-
lessee , Louisiana and Mississippi , J'lorldn ,
Montana , Texas , Idaho , Arizona , Georg'a ,
Alabama , North Dakota , Oklahuna , Indian.
Territory , Indiana , Pennsylvania.
It ttas 1-30 before the Pennsylvania de
partment swung into line and closed up the
rear of one of the grandest Grand Army of
the Republic parades ever held In the coun
try. At 3 o'clock the end of the column
reached the Associated press office , the pa
rade having been four hours and fifteen min
utes passing down Fourth avenue. Then
the- divisions broke Into posts and marched
Into their quarters In different parts oC the
tuo cities.
The weather was perfect. The sky put on
Its d'epcst blue tint , relieved here nnd there
by white , fleecy clouds without the sugges
tion of a storm ; the sun shone brilliantly ,
but Its rays were tempered by 11 cool ami
bracing breeze. It was an Ideal day for a
parade , both for the nun In line nnd the
The decorations of the two cities were most
lavish. It was stated by men who attended
many previous encampments that vkhlle in
dividual displays may have been excelled
In other cities , they had never seen decora-
Cons on such a gorgeous and general scale.
Hardly a dwelling , no matter how poor or
how far from the route of parade , but at
least had a nag , and usually a display of
bunting as well , while , the business houses
In every part ofthe cities made , a gorgeous
showing ,
This wag not the only manner in which
the gratitude , pride and patriotism of the
citizens was displayed. They gave friore
certain evidence by th ; manner In which
they turned out to greet the old soldiers.
It Is Impossible to form any accurate esti
mate of the spectators , Kvery available
Inch along thi route was packed , every side
street was Jammed full of people for a hun
dred yards back , and the bouse tops for
blocks away were hidden by masses , of en
thusiastic applauders.
A rough estimate Is that betwojn GOO.OOO
and COO.OOO people saw the parade. Of this
numbsr 300,000 to 350,000 came over the rail
roads , 100,000 arriving this morning- . The al
most Innumerable lines of electric roads run
ning to thickly settled suburbs within a
radius of fltteen miles , brought as many
Tlic old Eoldlers appreciated the honor dane
them , and turned out In force , but few being

time the veterans -will turn out in such force- ,
as It IE seriously contemplated by the Grand
Army ot the Republic cfllclals. In A lew of
the advancing ago and Infirmities cf the
members , to abandon this most attractive
feature of the nattoiul encampment , There
fore they proposed to make the last parade
a success , and tramped over the tuo miles
of route with the same determination that
characterlred them when they marched
agilnst the southern armies.

DENVER. Sept. II. The Associated press
dispatches from New York concerning the
ctioigca of fraud made against Jclin C.
Uoatty ind others In a Sonars , Mex. , land
deal has created some excitement In this
city , where some of the defendants reside.
James It , llrown , one of the'defendants , said
in reference to the company that a long
while ago he saw the Impracticability of
the scheme advanced by Bcatty and sent In
hla resgnatlon ns one of the directors , as
ho did not care to have Ilia name used In
connection with It.
" 1 attended but one meeting ot the board
of dlrectcrs , and that was Immediately after
the company was formed , " said Mr. Drown ,
" 1 have learned recently that Bcatly and
Miller went east and I heard that they dis
posed cf some of the stock to eastern parties ,
although I never heard whether or not they
ever did any thing towards making- the
scheme a success. "
T. J. O'Donncl ' said : "I have been at
torney for the Colcrado R.vcr . Irrigation
company since Its organization. From what
I know ot the affairs ol the compiny I should
say that the suit commenced by James H.
Bcatty against John C. Dealt- and the com
pany in New York Is u family quarrel. The
two men arc cousins.
"Tho Colorado men mentioned have had
practically nothing to do with its manage
ment since the first year ot Its existence.
They had sold mast of their stock to James
H. Hcatty , but in the controversy between
James. H Bcatty and JJm C. Benlty they filed
with the latter and cast the deciding vote
In his favor. This irritated James H.
Dtatty , and he has undoubtedly named them
us parties defendant In the suit largely ant
cf sp te. Mr. Samuel N. Wood , w ho Is
named as a defendant , IISH not been a di
rector of the company or had anything to
lo with It for some two years or move , and ,
so far as 1 knew , does not and has not for
that length of time owned * a share In It ,
The company owns valuable franchises In
California , secured by location and acts of
congress , and has the absolute title to be
tween SOO.OOO and 900,1)00 ) acres ot land in
Sonora , Mex. , much of It Immediately on the
American border. The land Is said by pirtles
wha have seen It to be valuable , The com
pany has been In cmbsrrnssed circumstances
since the financial panic ol 1893 , and this
suit Is undoubtedly the culmination of an
attempt to freeze J. C. Deii\y and the other
stockholders out and obtain" the franchises
and property ot the cornpany themselves. "

SAN PRANCISCO , Sept. 11. The fate of

not bo decided , In all probability , until some

In the United States court today after Judge
Morrow had sustained a formal demurrer to
the defendant's plea of lack -ol Jurisdiction.
Argument was begun by the counsel for'ths
government of San Salvador. The opening
nrgunie'nt will not be-concluded beforj to

case will be submitted tujthe court before
next week. General Hz ta jireres-to hava a

sives and flowers which have been sent to

who make no attempt to concjal their ad
miration ot the flerce looking Spanish-Ameri
can have been constant attendants on the
proceedings In the court , One handsome
Spanish girl , who has besn more persistent
than others ot her rivals , has regularly
waited at the entrance of the hotel In which
Ezeta and his comrades are held as prisoners.
In order to catch a glimpse of her hero and
follow after him to the court room. Kzcta's
conduct has been manly. To all appearances
these flattering attentions have been un
noticed , Tlu great legal battle , which means
to him life or death , claims his whole at

Fully 2,500 citizens of Omaha gathered
at Exposition hall lost evening to listen
0 JudgeHolconib , tlu people's ' party candl-
Into for governor. The meeting was the
opening one of the state campaign for the
ndcpeiidents , nnd It the size and enthusiasm
of the aiidUnce Is. any criterion , the opening
vas auspicious to a high degree , The big
mil was pnckcil to the doors on the ground
leer , while there was a large overflow Into
the galleries. Judge Holcomb creat tl n
favorable Impression from the start.
The meeting was opened without any for
mality. Dr. Bell of South Omaha presided
and Introduced first D. B. Carey of Fremont ,
the Independent candidate for attorney gen
eral. Mr. Carey spoke upon Issues of the
day and discussed the silver nueitlon nnd
tin- government ownership of railroads.
He was followed by Judge Wilson of Keith
county , candidate for auditor. Judge Wilson
spoke but a few moments , giving way to
fudge Holcamb , who addressed his audience
for about an hour. The substance ot his
address Is as follows :
"I desire to thank this splendid audience
'or the reception It has accorded me. It
seems to argue well for the success of our
ticket in November. The chairman of the
evening presented mo to you ns the next
governor of Nebraska. ] l Is better , pcr-
! iaps , that such a declaration should come
from him ami from the citizens of Douglas
county , rather than from me. 1 do not
krow that I am particularly noted for
modesty , but at the same tlmo I deslro to
say that I nm not egotist enough lo stand
up before an intelligent audience nnd declare
that I am going to be elected by 25,000
majority. ( Applause. ) I am too modest for
that. I shall be satisfied with 10,000 ( ap
plause ) , but with nothing less , and.with the
Mi.dly expressions of feeling which you havi
made tonight I hope we can swell the
majority to 20,000.
"Politics Is one of tha uncertainties of
life. I nm no prophet. But I can gauge to
some extent the sentiment of the people
1 come In contact with in my trips over the
state. I nm somewhat acquainted with th1
people ot Nebraska , nnd It is my firm con
viction that It the- election should be' held
In a short time , as Indeed It will be , the
election would register a majority of at
leas.t 20,000 In favor of a change ,
"I do not know but that In one respect
at least I am liketny illustrious opponent.
We are both occasionally candidates far office.
But I draw the line right there , I dis
claim receiving a nomination in n manner In
which the nomination was tendered my op
ponent in tbls city but a. few weeks ago.
When I went to Grand Island to attend the
Independent stite convention I did so with
no expectation of becoming candidate fci
goternor , Hut there I met conservative
people-from nil o er the state , from Omaha
and Lincoln , , from many of the smaller
towns and from the rural districts. These
men were ccnscrvatlvVTpatrloHc. They cilrie
there to serve the people and to demand
good government , honesty In the administra
tion of the state's affairs. They came with
out selfishness , of motive , and they asked
ma to bo a candlflate for governor. Such a
demarid I csuld not refuse. So I came to
you ns n candidate , not as a man with a
dealra to thrust myself Into nn office. I was
already occupying a position satisfactory to
myself , a position In which I was giving
reasonable satisfaction to my constituents ,
and a position which to my mind was
equally as honorable as the one to whlcli I
am now an aspirant. I come before the
people at this lime believing that thsro Is
a demand by a large majority of the citizens
ot Nebraska , for a reform In state govern
"The state ot Nebraska. Is now twenty-
seven years old. It is a young state In the
galaxy of states , n state that we are all
proud of , a slate that has grown in wealth
and population almost beyond expectation I
have seen the state of which we are all BO
proud grow for sixteen years. I have taken
a deep Interest in Its growth , but not more ,
perhaps , than thousands of others -who have
worked for Its material and Intellectual ad
vancement. 1 have seen Omaha grow from
n mere spot on the map to one of the leading
cities of this great west. When I first came
to Nebraska Omaha was but a small city.
Now its name is known nnd its place Is rec
ognized among the leading cities all o\cr
the civilized world. I have seen South
Omaha grow Into an Important city in a few
years , and It seems to me that her growth
Is marked by Interests almost If not fully
Important as thote of Omaha Itself. And ,
having seen thtse things , I want to say that
there Is not an Interest In Nebraska , In
Omaha. or South Omaha that cannot be
safely entrusted to the hands of an Inde
pendent administration as safely as in the
hands that have controlled the stale for the
sixteen years that I have lived In the state.
I can see no reason why the business In
terests of Omaha , South Omaha , Lincoln.
Beatrice , Fremont , Hastings or Grand Island
can be particularly benefited by the election
of any one particular candidate or net of
candidates. I take It that the affairs ol
government Jf rightly administered are broad
enough to care for the Interests of every Indi
vidual and every city and every part of the
state. I do not believe that the business In
terests of Omaha are opposed to the Interests
Of the state , consequently I fail to under
stand why it should bo said , as I understand
It has already been said , that I bhould or
could not Interpret the laws or administer
the affnlra of the state without endangering
the business Interests of Omaha or of any
part ot the state. Wo all agiee that the
sacredncss of property and of property rights
must be protected , that contracts must not bo
broken , but must be lived up to. Kalr dealIng -
Ing bctwc-en man and man Is held just as
high In my esteem as those who are claim
ing , that the business Interests of the state
are to be affected by the election of any one
particular candidate.
"I do not care to discuss this evening- the
difference. ! that exist between natlona
parties. We have already had a little too
much of fruitless tariff discussion. I am
not going to talk ot tne silver question ,
am more Interested in taking care of the
silver we have already accumulated. I am
more Interested In seeing It honestly spent
I am inoro Interested In seeing that when the
money we already have Is taken from the
pockets of the taxpayer It Is expended lion
cstly and judiciously.
"In my humble Judgment , the business In
terests ot the state of Nebraska demand tha
the class of men which has for the pas
twenty-five * ycara controlled the state affair
to the disadvantage nf the people and of th
taxpayer shall step down and out. I knot
political parties are like human nature gen
ernlly. The masse * of the people are lion
est. Dut there are. unfortunately , men who
ure honest personally , but who , for the pur
posa of holding tha affairs of state In the-1
grasp , arc. politically at dishonest as any
jnau the state- has ever produced. The ;
look upon public office as legitimate prey
nnd they use office for the purpose of feath
erlng their own nests , I am not alone In
this belief. The last legislature , by a vol
of a majority of republicans , as well as In
dependent ; , drew ip an indictment ugalns
the officers nlio had managed the elate'
affairs tn the Interests nf the rings. The In
vestlgatlon before Ihe supreme court , na yoi
all know , dltclosed a mass of corrup'lon ' , o
mUmanageme-nt and of malfeasance 8linos
surpassing belief While the Indicted offl
dais escaped on a tchnlcatity , there V > * tl !
a widespread foallne that they were rccrc
nt lo the trust Imposed upon them by the
coplo ot the state. The Investigation set
100pie to thinking. And they nrc now ntk-
np , What have our public servants done for
sT Have they done their duty ?
"Under the lust reign of mlsrul ; , fraudu-
nt contracts hue been awarded ; there has
iceti flagrant disregard of the Interests ol the
leoplo ; taxes have been growing heavier ; the
oatlng Imlebt'dnes of the state has been In-
reaslng. Nearly $300.000 of the state's
loncy has been lost in the failure ot the
Capital National bank , The sum of $ . (0,000 (
las been expended nl th state penitentiary
or n cell house that Is absolutely worthless
or the purposes for which it was built. The
pproprlatlons for numerous Institutions have
) een squander-J.
"Why do I remark upon these things ? Be-
ause I believe that the fame element that
ias controlled the state Is still endeavoring
o retain tlut control ; because 1 believe that
he same element Is now attempting to die-
ate the men who are expected to cover up
olteimcss that may still be undiscovered.
Every taxpayer should look Into this matter
nnil say for himself whether the past Blate
ot affairs shall continue. I do not ray that
my candidate on Ihe republican ticket Is
personally dishonest , but I do Bay that every
anJIilato on that ticket was nominated nnd
s controlled by the same class of men that
or years- past has dominated our slate gov
ernment. It srcrns to me that the time has
cume when the people of Nebraska should
naUe a careful Invcbtlgatlon and then say
vh'lher the Interests of the state , Its Inlcfi-
rlty , Its credit shall longer bo controlled by
men uhoio actions have been so Iniquitous
is lo 'be almost a stench In tlio nostrils of
he people.
"In conclusion I do nut care to say that I
vIH bo the best governor Nebraska has ever
lad. 1 du tny , however , that when I nm
elected I propose to discharge my duty to
ho best of my ability. I will do everything
that can be Oono to bring about a safe ,
economical and conservative administration
of affairs In our state government , and see
o It that the faith and credit of the state Is
< cpt as high or higher than It has been up
to the present tlms. "
Judge Holconib was heartily applauded at
evvry one of his telling points.
W. L , Green of Kearney awakened enthusi
asm by making a brief speech In his own
enthusiastic manner. He said that the noml-
latlon of Tom Majors had acted as a pavver-
ul emetic upon the republican stomach ; that
IB would be spewed out In November. He
said that although a great deal had been
said in the past about Edward Iloeewnter ,
.hero wer ; 10,000 Edward Rosewatcr republi
cans in Nebraska -\\lia would spew out the
republican candidate for governor , He com-
iared the republican attitude to Rosewatcr
o the colond man who had captured a rabbit.
As the colored man carried the rabbit home
he chuckled over his good fortune. "Yer
Rood tcr stew. Yer good fcr fry. Yer good
"er baks. Yer good for everything that dls
larkey wants. " At this point In the apostrophe
trophe the rnhblt made Its escape and the
llsappolnted darkey shouted after It : "Go
it. ycr raw boned , slab sided , dr > meat , good
[ or nothing I ain't gut any us * fer ycr any-
liow. " Aa long as Edward Rosewater was
with the ticket , he was all right , but as soon
as he refused to support the republican
candidate for governor he was of no use any-

AUGUSTA. Me. , Sept. 11. The republicans
regard the result of yesterday's election * as
the biggest victory they have ever achieved
in this state.
The vote for governor , which two years
ago was 130,000 , iq reduced 13,000 to20,00(1 ( ,
but even with this , It Is alleged that Cleaves
has received 70,000 votes. In every one of
thc-slxteen count- ! thc..staljktji _ d4mp.-
cracy has been defeated.
Every city in Che state has probably gone
republican , which Is something phenomena ] ,
The returns show nothing but republican
gains. The returns BO far indicate that
Johnson , democrat , did not get over S5.000
votes , to 55.000 cast for him two jcars ago ,
and this may be reduced by.later returns.
All four of the republican'congressmen are
elected by largely Increased majorities. The
republicans have carried both branches of
the legislature , electing a solid senate , which
two years ago stood thirty republicans and
one democrat. In the house of representa
tives , which consists of 151 members , and
which two years ago stood 107 republicans
and forty-four democrats , the republicans , It
Is believed , have elected 110 members , while
the remainder have been elected by the demo
crats and populists.
The late returns Indicate that the demo
crats will have but fourteen In the house of
representatives , against 137 republicans ,
