WASHINGTON' . Oct. 15. The Corcan le-
Katlon received an oinclal cable today stat
ing : "King proclaimed himself emperor
from this date. October 15 , 1897. "
The transition which Corea makes today ,
from a kingdom to an empire , Is fdlt to
have considerable significance In Oriental af
fairs , although the cable to the legation gives
no details of the change , and the officials
hero nro without any Information as to the
cause's loading up to It. It Is understood ,
' ' however , to bo a part of the progressive
5' policy on which Corea has embarked , follow
1 ing the lead of Japan and China. Tito king
Is u member of the progreslve ( tarty and
shares the wish of that party to bring Corea
up to modern standards. The opposition
clement Is known as the conservative ( tarty
nnd Is detlrous of preserving the old tradi
tions and governmental system of the coun
try. Mr. Soli , who tcccntly died here , was
the leading llgure of this progressive ele
ment , while tlie Corean minister Is a mem
ber of the conservative party.
The last step taken by the king. In pro
claiming himself emperor after today , Is re
garded ns a final stroke ot the progressive
and modern clement.
Tlio change also has another n iect. China
has long asserted a suzerainty over Corea und
U was this claim that brought on the China-
Japan war. While the claim la dormant , yet
China nuvcr lias rcllmiulshi-d what II lias
regarded as an hereditary sovereignty over
Corea. With the latter country as a king
dam , some apparent aid was given llio claim
of the imperial authority la China , but with
Corea Itself ( idvanclng to the rank of an
empire It throws off every evidence of do-
ncmlcnro on any outside power. This In-
depcndenci ) would apply also to Japan and
ItiiHsiu. which have been seeking to gain
Intlueni'i * and control In Corea , owing to that
country's extensive const line and valuable
harborH on the north 1'iicllic. To Russia in
ixirtli'iilnr tlie acquisition of Corea's 1'aclllc
co.ist line has been icgardcd as of great
titr.ategic Importance , as Russia's present
l > ortn on the I'adllc are closed by Ice during
the winter , while these of Corea are open
the year round.
The advances made by Russia and Japan In
Cor * i have led to much conlllct between tlie
two countries , the last move being a protest
by Japan against the assignment of Russian
olllr-ers to drill the Corwa army. With
Oorca an empire It is felt that It gives un
mistakable evidence to other aw.ilrliig nations
that It has no Intention of becoming absorbed
by or become a petty kingdom of any otlier
empire , but will exercise Imperial authority

WASHINGTON , Oct. 15. The cabinet was
In session for two hours today. Most of
the time was devo'ed to a discussion of
the financial operations of the government.
This Included both receipts and ex
penditures. The latter was the special ob
ject of consideration , as It U the wish of
the administration to keep the expenditures
from exceeding the receipts. The different
heads of departments have been engaged
for some time upon thu estimates of their
departments an.l efforts are being made to
have rcduntloim made wherever possible. In
both the War and Navy departments there Is
pressure for larger expenditures for coast
defenses , rivers anil harbors and for an Increase -
crease of the navy. The recommendations
of bureau officers In these departments have
JieiMi scanned very closely and reductions
will bo made If found compatible with the
public interest. In the other departments
tliele Is no urgent demand for Increases.
Various othnr departmental matters
were brought bcforo the cabinet and several
members remained after the meeting to con
sider them with .the . president.

MITCHELL , S. n. , Oct. 15. ( Special Tele-
Rram. ) bast night's session of the Methodist
conference was a roil letter day for Dakota
university of this city. After the magnificent
cJucntlonal addresses of Hlsliop Warren and
Dr. Payne , the latter presented the niatccr
of the Indebtedness which has hung over the
Institution for a number of years. Ho stated
that It had been decided by the management
and the committee on education , Including
the presiding elders , that the present was an
opportune time to clear the Institution of Its
Indebtedness. It seemed like lifting a moun
tain to raise the Indebtedness which encom
passed the university , but the Methodists
loved their university and seamed willing to
undergo every hardship or endure any priva
tion to foster and encourage It nil they could.
With a strong sympathetic feeling on his
side , Dr. Payne started In to raise the $7,230.
First the claim of Prof. Duncan for $2,750 tor
well earned salary wu.i presented , und to
start the ball to rollliu ; 1'rof. Duncan cut his
claim In half , accepting SI,1175 to satUfy lha :
debt. Then Dr. Graham's claim for salary
for $708 was treated In Ilko manner at hf.i
own suggestion , and $351 paid that debt. Prof.
Stout , now living In Iowa , authorized a sub
scription of $100 on his claim. Tlion it v.as
the turn of the presiding elders and irtnlslcrs
to como to the rescue , nr 1 shay drl it In a
grand and self-sacrificing manner. In a short
time enough money was pl'digtM to liquidate
every dollar of Indebtedness against Dakota
university. Altogether , laulu.l'ntt ' the dona

Prof. Duncan of Dakota university was In
troduced to the conference and gave an out
line of the endowment plan which is to lie
of future benefit to the university. Hrletly ,
the Idea Is to secure donations of farm lands
from eastern companies and others ablu to
give , until the Institution has a heritage ol
perhaps several thousand acres In various
parts of the state. As the land Increases
In value , as It Is certain to do , the endow
ment will be come a great factor In the
maintenance of the Institution.

County Judge liaxter Is Inclined to believe
that prosperity Is really here. He based his
opinion on the fact that ho Is not getting
anywhere near the number of applications
for positions as clerks and Judges of election
as ho ought to have. From this he concludes
that there are comparatively few unemployed
men In the city , for In the past there have
been four times as many applicants as there
have been positions ,
Applicants will hnvo to file their applica
tions within a very few days In order to secure -
cure ait appointment. There nro 700 Judges
mid clerks to bo appointed and It will take
considerable time to select thorn and appor
tion them among the different political par
ties. The central committees have as yet
