HISTORY OF THE SHIPS
The Chen Yur-n must have started
out from Tuliu after leaving the
Chinese transports there. The two
Chinese cruisers supposed to have been
captured or destroyed daring the en
gagement which ended so fatally for
the Cben-Yaen.are the Chin-Yuan and
the JJ'oo Chitig. The Chin Youn was a
protected cruiser, built nt Elswick,
England. She had a displacament of
2.300 tons and attained au average
speed in ber trial trips, with all
w-iuh's, batteries and orew aboard, of
18i knots. Her armament consisted of
three 8-inch Krnppi and two G-inch
Armstrongs, protected by splinter roof
shields. She also carried eight ex
pounder rapid fire Ilotvhkiss gnns, six
Catlings aud fonr torpedo tubes.
The Foo-Cbing wns also an English
built protected cruiser, very much
similar to the CliinYuan. She bad a
displacement of 3,G0() tons, was built of
steel in 1800, and carried ten guns of
about the same calibre as those carried
by the Chin-Yuan,
The Chinese fl-et carried about 1,000
men most of whom were drowned.
Among the killed here two G-rraan
officers a:t':ched to the Chen Yuen.

7,400 tons displacement, and was the
most powerful warship in the Cnineae
navy with the exception of Ting Yuen.

Yokohoma, July 31 Tim following
official statement of the difficulties be

the outbreak of hostilities between
those two countries, has been iasned
by the Japanese government.
Japan aud China were approaching a
settlement of their difficulties when
China suddenly requested Japan to
wittidraw ner fleet from Korea, and to
give a formal compliance with the
Chinese demands by the twentieth,
otherwise the whole Chinese forces
were to land and a sea advance upon
the part of China was to be made. Tho
Japanese regarded this as an ultima
tum, but, acting under the advices of
the friendly powers, they agreed to the
proposals, in principle, in amended.

u tne threatened Chinese advance was
made on the twentieth it would be re
garded as a monace to Japan.
It is conjectured that the Japanese
naval commanders were instructed to
be on the quivive for the Chinese war
ships and, seeing the latter advancing
on July 27. they opened fire. The Jap

The Dusky Queen Desires to Secure
Damages for the Loss of
Washington. July 31. The Ha-
waiian Royalist commission, now on
its way to Washington, will be com
pelled to depend ou its own resources
to seenre an audience with the officers
of the government. No assistance in
that direction will be givan by tbe of
ficers of the legation of tha Republic
here, who point ont that it would be
manifestly improper for them to inter
cede in behalf of nny one who is op
posed to tne nxuting government.
i' raulc Jf. iinstinus seerotary of tbe
legation and charge d'affaires during
the absence of Minister Thurston, said
today be bad not received onicially any
information conenrninz tbe commis
sion and has no idea what its mission
is, unless it be to protest against the
recognition ot the present form of
government and to Intercede for the
restoration of the qnen. Mr. Hastings
has had letters from friends at honn
which referred to the fact that
the commission is coming to Washing
ton, lint tbey are entirely unofficial.
Mr. Hastings is'personally ncqnainted
with the members and says tbey ere
all proninent royalists. It is believed
bore tbat tho real object of the com
mission's visit to Washington is to ob
tain from the government some com
pensation for Queen Lilioukalani,
whom the royulisis esy was unseated

An Elab irate Programme In repara
tion for Mha Kitaor'a Bentfit.
The programme for the ooncert to
be given for Miss Sadie Kaiser's bene
fit iu the armory next Thursday night
is nearly complete and includes the
best singers in Luzerne and Lcka-
wnuna counties. Tue Concordia Male
chorus at its last meeting decided to
partioipate and will do all they can to
muko the affair a complete anocess.
The tickets are selling rapidly, but
there Hre good seats left yet Everv
one who admires artistic tnuslo shou'd
nttend. Aside from the objct, tbe
concert itself will be by far tbe finest
ever held here.
The f ffort to secure for Miss Kaiser
an opportunity to study for a year at
the London conservatory should re
ceive the hearty support of all. Her
voice has been adjudged by the best
critics to be lraiu-ut with great possi
bilities, and it would be little less than
a crime against art to deny it the cul
tivation necessary to bring it out. In
tbe near f uturo, unless all signs fail,
tbe city will have reason to feel still
more proud ot her vocalists, and her
people will be amply repaid for what
ever they may do to encourage the
most promising of them all. Tho ar
mory should be crowded to tho doors.
