YOKOHAMA Cby Steamer Oceanic , -via
Ban Francisco ) , Sept. 2. The revised treaty
between Japan and Kngland was ratified at
Tofolo August 25. For the first tlmo the
United States has failed to take advantage
of Japan's desire , to deal primarily with the
great republic In Important International
transactions. Tlio opinion expressed in
Japan Is that negotiations at Washington
might have been concluded long ago If the
State department had been disposed to act
upon Japanese proposals. As It Is , Great
Britain stands ahead In the enactment ot
the treaty which the Asiatic empire has been
urgently striving for more than twenty years
On ono previous occasion the matter was
nearly brought to a conclusion by Count
Oku ma , but at the last moment his plans
\\cio defeated by the violent public demon
strations In Japan against nls method of
adjusting the vexed question of the Judi
ciary. It was , therefore , thought expedient
to keep these latter negotiations strictly se
cret nnd to allow none of the proposed condi
tions to become a subject ot popular discus
sion until the affair was absolutely termin
ated.The announcement , first made by the em-
ppror , was a sutprlso to every one , though
vague rumors of what was contemplated
had been circulated during the past few
The treaty confers no Immediate ad
vantages on Japan. At least five years
must elapse before It goes Into operation ,
and It Is for Japan to say whether or not
the Interval shall bo longer , but until
1S90 everything must remcln as It Is now.
The purpose of this delay Is that Japan
shall perfect her judicial system to an ex
tent warranting the abolition of Kngllsh law
courts. The- existence of foreign tribunals
lu ono ot Japan's chief grievances , and this ,
so far as Great Britain Is concerned , will
cease at the appointed time.
READJUSTING THE TARIFF.
The other grievance Interfering with the
tariff will not be dne away with until 1910 ,
\vlicn complete autonomy may bo resumed
by the simple process ot terminating the
treaty. Hut from 1S09 , or whatever date the
Japanese assign for the agreement to ccmc
in force , eleven years later , when It may bs
cancelled by cither party , a pirtlally new
tariff will bo adopted , somewhat more favor
able to Japan than that which now regu
lates her commerce , but not strikingly so.
The Import duties now collected average C
per cent ad valorem. Under the new Hrltlsh
schedule the average Is estimated at front
C to 8 per cent. Only twetlty-nln" articles ,
Komo of which are so subdivided as to make the
total appear1 thirty-nine , ore raised above
the former rates. "Of these silks and sole
leather are fixed at 1G per cent. The major
ity , Including parafllno oil , arc flx.d nt 10 pet
cent. The actual computation , however , will
not be ad valorem. By a supplementary
convention specific duties will be applied on
the basis of average prices , as shown by the
customs returns for six months. The duti
able vnluo of Imports will Include freights ,
insurance nnd commission Items not hlthertc
As regards export duties. It does not ap
pear that any changes are propsed , Tin
position of Englishmen In Japan will be It
most respects identical with that of tmt'vc
subjects. Only two privilege's will be with
held , the right of coastwise trade and tin
right to ov.n land. Buildings may be- owned
but land must bo held on leases.
SECURITY FOR THE FUTURE.
It is evident that In negotiating till
treaty Japan has not consulted present ga't
BO much as security fcr the future. Dim
cullies of the existing system have grown ti
bo Intolerable to her , aid sha would almos
have consented to sacrifices for a time to b
assured of positive release at a designate !
period. Flvo years Iicnco British ex-tcrrl
torlal jurisdiction will bo abolished , am
Japan expects tfiat 'the ether powers wll
likewise close their consular courts. Slxteei
years hence she hopes similarly to be rid o
all commercial restrictions. The burdens o
the Interval nru not felt to bo too hcivy i
prlco to pay tPr ultimatefreedom. .
All persons concerned In preparing an
negotiating the treaty have ban honore
with high marks of consideration by the Japanese
aneso government. Th-j Jcpanesn minister o
foreign affairs , Mutsu Muucmltsu , has bee
raised to the petraue , with the title of via
count and a grant ot10,000 yen , about $20 ,
000 In gold. As minister nt Washington dv

If the navy or army should meet with seri
ous disasters his position will be extremely
dangerous. Failure that cannot be kept
from exposure Is the one unpardonable crime
In Chinese statesmanship.
CHINESE : COAST DEFENSE.
While the military activity Is chiefly shown
In the north considerable attention la glvsn
to the strengthening ot fortifications along
the Chlnere coast. Orders have been sent
to Formosa to repair the works at Tai-wan-fu
nnd Takoa , owing to the rumors that the
Japancs : contemplate a descent on that
Island. No ground for this suspicion can be
discovered , nnd Japan has enough to occupy
her In Corea and the neighborhood.
The inactivity of the armies In Corca gives
rlso to various surmises , particularly In
Japan , where apprehensions of a reverse are
freely expressed , In olflc'al circles great
reticence Is shown , but suggestions are heard
to the effect that the delay Is part of n stra
tegic plan for the discomfiture of the Chinese
f.rces shortly. The armies have undoubtedly
been within a day's march from ono another
for some time. Trifling skirmishes are sup
posed to bo Inst'gated ' by the Japanese to cc-
cupy the attention ot the adversary , while a
strong body proceeds through the eastern dis
tricts ot the peninsula , Intending to etrlko
the Chinese In the rear , nnd , If possible , com
pel their surrender before they have an op
portunity to escape. Projects of a march
across the fruitier at WIJu and nn advance
upon Peking by land are discussed , though
with much caution. Direct Information Is
very sparingly vouchsafed , but not the
slightest symptom of uneasiness can be de
tected In any of the government olHcers ,
JAPANESE VETERAN IN COMMAND.
General Cutnt Camagata Is about to take
command of the entire Japanese forces In
and about Corea , both military and naval.
Ho Is one of the oldest ofllcers now In the
service , and began his career In the war ot
Imperial rest ration , 1SGS. He held the post
of minister of war for many years , and has
for a brief term been prime minister of the
government. Lieutenant General Nosu re
mains at the head of th3 troops , and Admiral
Kabayama in control cf the naval branch ,
Up to the present time no American or
European correspondents have been permitted
to follow tha Japanese trotpa In the field ,
objection being that It would be impossible
to prevent them from circulating Information
that might bo useful to the enemy. Repre
sentatives ot Japansse newspapers are allowed
to go In all directions , and may send tele
grams free of charge over the government
wires , but these privileges are limited by a
rigid censorship , which forbids publication
of all news that has n t passed under official
supervision. Enterprise is of little avail.
On more than one occasion Interesting news
has teen received by the Toklo Journals some
time In advance of Its arrhal at the Wdr cr
Navy departments , and , though , entirely fa
vorable to the Japanese side. Its appearance
In print has been prohibited until after full
details have reached the government from Its
own agents. The necessity for due caution
Is recognized by tha presj , but the rule re
quiring active newspapers to suppress their
Inf rmatlon to suit the slow ministerial pro
cesses Is loudly complained of.
CREATED A SENSATION.
A sensation has been caused In Toklo by
the action of a European correspondent who ,
on July 24 , undertook to send a telegram
stating that Japan had declared war. As
this was untrue , and as the announcement
might have seriously prejudiced Japan's In
terest , the telegraphic authorities declined
to transmit his kneesage , whereupon ho
crossed to Shanghai and telegraphed thence
that no rcllinco could be placed upon news
proceeding from Japan , as all communica
tions were submitted to a rigorous censor
ship. As a matter of fact no foreigner
sending genuine Intelligence has bsen Inter
fered with , and dispatches over the wires
have gone freely to American and European
Eight of the national banks of Toklo have
subscribed for bonds of the loan to the
amount collectively of 20,010,000 yen. The
largest subscription Is that of the Fifth
national bank 7,000,000 yen.
Frequent accusations appear In Japan
newspapers of unwarranted acts of partiality
committed by the British officials In China's
favor. Admiral Freetnantlo U charged with
having Interfered with one ot Japan's naval
operations by ordering a salute to a Japan
ese admiral at an inopportune moment , and
thus giving warning to the enemy. The
story lacks confirmatory evidence. Out It
Is certain that In spile of the British proc
lamation of neutrality , English merchants'
ships , carrying munitions of war to Chinese
naval stations , have sailed from Shanghai
without obstruction by the consul.
COREAN BUSINESS DISTURBED.
Business in Corfn is much disordered
owing to the scarcity of silver and a sudden
lack of confidence In Japanese paper money ,
which has hitherto circulated virtually at
par. The agents of the Japanese national
banks have tried every mean to arrest the
decline of paper , which now stands at 40
per cent discount , but thus far their efforts
have been In vnln. The agitation began
with the wholesale departure- the Chinese
merchants , who exchanged large quantities
of notes for silver , which they carried home
with them. The Coreans , having little
knowledge of financial matters , and putting
great faith In China's shrewdness , fear that
the notes have become worthless , and gen
erally refuse to accept them.

It is expected that early In September the
customs service at the open ports of Corea
will be taken over by the Japanese , the
Corcans being nt present Incompetent to ad
minister it. The new nrrnngemrnt Is officially
sanctioned by the government at Seoul , yet
there Is a possibility that a show of oppo
sition will be made by the present collectors ,
chiefly Europeans appointed by Chinese au
thority , but their remonstrances will receive
PREFERRED NATIVE TROOPS ,
! ' On August 21 the Japati'se guard stationed
at the palace In Scout since July 23 was re-
placed by a party of native soldiers. At the
king's request a detachment ot Japanese
troops was ordered to be In readings when
rr ever summoned for palace duty.
rrs Corean officials travel with the Japanese
c troops In that country to explain that for
all provisions required commissariat receipts
will ba duly given and paymtnts made at
fixed times and places. Per contra , .the
Chinese army has no commissariat and lives

his expedition against the charges made of
Inexperience and bad outfit. He especially
protested Ihat he had not abandoned I'rof.

added , had 1,200 pounds of provisions on the

among army ofUcers at the War department
that Colonel Gordon , who Is to succeed Col
onel Guy V. Henry In command at Fort
Myer , on Arlington Heights , ya. , across the
1'otomac from Washington ! will doubtless
bring with him an excellent ; squadron , but
the newcomers' will have tij be decidedly
above the average If they wmild keep up to
Ihe present plane the reputation of the * force
tt Fort Myer. Good behavior has been the
almost unbroken rule , the officers have been
undeservedly popular , and , more than all , the
squadron has developed military efficiency the
like of which , It Is believed , Icannot be sur
passed by any other four troops In the nrroy.
Under Colonel Henry ths post has . .become-
nearly a model Institution an the economical
administration of the quartermaster gen
eral's department would permit. The de
parture of Colonel Henry and of the officers
and men now at Fort Myer will be very prop
erly regretted by a large number ot Washing-
tonlans , many of whom received their first
real Information as to military matters
through the wide-open hospitality of those
who will soon receive orders to depart.

BOSTON , Sept. 1C. There Is every indi

the trade held meetings today and endorsed
the iccoinmendutlons bf tlie clothing tmde
council thtit the lumiilnu system be nbol-

established ; also that a uniform number of
working hours be established. The matter
will be liroucht before a mass meeting ot

recommendations are adopted by a. two-

they refuse a strike will be ordered nt once.

that they have everything to gain nnd

LEXINGTON , Spt. 10. The victors eeek
to possess tlio entire Held , the vanquished
accept defeat manfully. This conclusion .19
justified by outside appearances here , which
began to manifest themselves early this
morning. One notable Indication was the
dotting of Brrcklnrldge badges And donning
of Owens badges by the most ardent young
bloods who supported Brecklnrldge through
out the campaign with their money and
their personal services. These men say that
they went to the election yesterday believ
ing that every voter at the primaries was
morally bound to support the nominee. Now
that their favorite , for whom they fought
so valiantly , teems to have suffered de
feat , they feel In honor bound to support
his opponent. Brechlnrldgc absolutely re
fuses to talk ,
The most thorough Investigation tonight
failed to find a shadow ot ground for the
rumor that ho would content Owens' elec
tion. Everybody is thoroughly tired of Iho
fierce contest that terminated at yesterday's
primaries. To contest the election would
ba to prolong the struggle. The probabili
ties , therefore , seem to be against the con
test. The best figures obtainable here to
night at this hour give totals for candidates
as follows : Owens , 7,030 ; Hrecklnrldgc ,
7,670 ; Settle , 3,103. Owens * plurality , 320.
Corrected returns , which are- expected tomor
row , will probably vary but little from these
A strong Brecklnrldgo man , cashier In one
of the banks here , attributed the defeat of
his candidate to thu opposition of Judge
Morton and I'rof. McGarvcy of the Christian
church. Ho said : "The Christian church
has a very strong following here and , while
ordinarily wo should have given 800 or 1,000
iluraltty to Brecklnrldgc , wo carried FayMtc
: ounty by only 205 votes. "
Colonel John 11. Allen , county attorney ,
mo of Ilrecklnrldge's incessant supporters ,
says that he Intends to support Owens and
n fact Is wearing an Owens button.
Then Is nothing definite In the way of
cturns at 9:30 : tonight. The Owens men
claim the election of Owens by 410 plurality ,
while the Urecklnrldge men claim Owens'
plurality Is only 1C9. It la believed by many
ivell posted On ens men that Brccklnrldgc
ivlll contest the election.
No official returns have been received from
he country , most of the telegraph olllces In
.he smaller towns bslng closed on Sunday.
The Hrecklnrldgo managers from all parts of
.ho district have been In close consultation
here. They figure Owens' plurality at 169 ,
against the 410 plurality claimed by Owens

The people residing on Luke creek , some slK
or eight miles northeast of this place , have
unearthed some very uncomfortable neigh
bors , who were quietly enjoying their houses

numerous nests of tarantulas. The first dis
covery was made III an old log cabin on the
ranch of A. G. Bullock , by John Cummins ,
nn old timer , a resident of Denver at present ,
who was then on a visit He found one In
the cabin , nnd at once recognized Its deadly
character. When he attempted to kill It
the reptile showed light , and Jumped three
or four feet at him repeatedly until dla-
P.atched. It had a body as largeas the top
of an ordinary coCeo cup , covered with long
hair , and legs three or four Inches long , and
as large almost as a lead pencil. Search
was made for more , and they were found
under the cavis of all the buildings on the
ranch , where they had entrenched them
selves , and had built nests with trap doors.
They were of a light-grayish color. Some
of them were also spotted and mottled in a
curious way. About twenty were dispatched
by the people there before the hunt was
Word was carried to other ranches , and
tarantulas were found to abound. At the
ranch of Hubert Grooms , only a mile dis
tant from that of Bullock's , they found
about a dozen , and at the riuici of John
Mead , ttlll further up on the same stream ,
between eight and a dozen were killed. On
l.wer Paso cresk. at the ranch of Wlllanl
II. Mead , about fifteen miles north of here ,
they killed a number of "big spiders" this
summer , nnd there Is no doubt that they
were tarantulas. These discoveries have put
everybody In the qul vlve , and every ranch
man will proceed to destroy these pc&ts when

Just how these deadly Inhabitants of warm

In this high northern country Is a great
mystery. It Is conjectured that the eggs
may have been transported here by the
wind , or In packsaddles or some such means.
Heretofore that portion of the Saratoga
valley south of the old emigrant trail , which
runs across the country some ten or twelve
miles below here , has been free from any
poisonous reptile or any character. North of
the old emigrant road , and especially In bog

recently , measured bctwe n five nnd six feet ,
and Its stuffed skin adorns ono of the saloons
of this place at the present time. No one
has , however , been bitten by theJe venomcus

them as a kind of necessary evil , to be borne
