London, Dpt. 23 A dispatch from
Tientsin to the Central News say it l!
reported there that an uprising has tak
en plaice among the Mohammedans In
San FranclBcu, Dee.23 A private let
ter from Tokio says that there will be
jio peace until the Japanese enter Pekin.
From an official high in autrorlty tine
correspondent learns that If a Chinese
embassy, should come to Japan with
overtures of peace the Japanese would
insist upon the occupation of the Chi
nese capital as one of the terms, and
and the Chinese will agree to tills. It
Is learned from good authority that,
besides the ldemnlty already indicated,
the Japanese will demand the penin
sula on which Port Arthur is situated
und t'he islund of Formosa. The Chi
nese will agree to this, as they are pow
erless, and they also fear a revolution
by the two big secret societies, the Ka
lao Hul and the White Lily.
The foreign advisers of Vleroy LI-Hung-Chang
made a fortune in supply
dngpoorarms to the Chinese army. Most
of the Chinese rifles captured by the
Japanese were of "untliiuuted make, and
it lie ammunition did not lit the guns. It
is' said that Detrlng ami Von Hanncken
will be able to retire with several mil
lions apiece nt the close of the war.
Other correspondents at Toklo give
Some details of the taking of Port Ar
thur. The writers say they cannot give
many details, as they are to horrible for
publication. Capt. Harstow of the Jap
'unese Btnanidhip line, which runs along
t'heooust, tells of many instances of Chi
nese barbarity to Japanese prisoners of
war. Just before the capture of Port
Arthur a number of Japanese scouts
tvere captured by the Chinese, who tor
tured them. Some were burned at the
stake. Others were boiled alive in big
vats of hot water.
When the Japanese entered Port Ar
thur the sights they saw maddened them
The Captain says no pen can describe
the fearful mutilations practised upon
the Japanese captives, lie says an Am
erican who paw much of Apache war
fare In Arizona declared that the Chi
nese excelled those ravages in hideous
ingenuity and in Infamous mangling of
Over 800 of the Chinese garrison of
Port Arthur were put to the sword be
fore they pould escape, tiut theCaptaln
declares that there Is no foundation for
the statement that shopkeepers were
phot. Some 200 soldiers and officers of
Ll-IIung-Ohang's force escaped-In- a
body from Port Arthur to Shan Hal Ka-wn
un the main land but the Chinese resi
dents, infuriated beonuse of the loss of
Port Arthur, killed the officersand then

I I Hung Chang Is llulky.
Washington, Dec. 2:!. It Is reported
that Moukden has been deserted by the
populace In view of the license exer
cised by Chinese soldiers. There is also
ne'ws .that Manchuria Is overrun by
plundering deserters and that utter
anarchy prevails. Another report Is
that LI Hung Chang has refused to re
turn to Pekin. from Tien Tsln to as
sist Prince Rung and Prince Chlng In
the administration of the war. The
statement Is alfo made that arrange
ments were completed In the latter
part of November for moving the Chi
nese court from Pekin. If the Japanese
troops showed any disposition to reach
the capital, the emperor was to leave at
once. The probable place of retirement
is given as Chang Chla Ken.
Congratulatory demonstrations over
Japanese victories have been held. in
Japan. Patriotism Is still rampant nnd
the noble families of Japan are making
tontrlbutlons to the war fund.

From the Detroit Free Press.
He stepped out of a doorway on Mon
roe avenue, the other night and con
fronted a pedestrian to say:
"Time is 'money and I will detain

"That's right what Is It?" was the
"You have no money for such as

"Because I would mnke for the .near

"That's It, exactly." J-:-

And the tramp watched him out of
flight and heaved a long sigh and whis
pered to himself:
"That's a horse on me, and I guess I'd
butter look around for a saddle or harness!"
The Central and Lehigh Valley rail
roads have compromised their crossing
dispute ait Allentown..
The Davis & Thomas Co., of Cjita
sauqua has Just been chartered to
manufacture Iron and steel.
The Leesport furnace, which has been
Idle three years, has started up, giving
employment i to about sixty men.
, The Delaware and Hudson company
proposes to extend Its Adirondack
branch thirty miles, from North Creek
to Long Lake.
Rabbi J. Leonard Levy, of Philadel
phia, has started coal yeards to supply
the poor with, fuel at cost. A bucket
Is retailed at 5 cents. The usual price
at this season of the year Is 8 cents a
bucket. The work Is constantly on the
Increase. In the brief period of opera
tion, nearly 15,000 buckets of coal have
already been sold.
A doubt as to the re-election of
President Harris, of the Reading rail
road, has been dispelled by the
official announcement from the Read
ing office that proxies representing
300,000 shares had been received In sup
port of Mr. Harris, and that proxies
representing from 50.000 to 60.000 shares
more were In sight. It Is further stated
that wince the stock books closed fully
150,000 shares had become disfranchised
by reason' of transfers, leaving about
650,000 shares that are entitled to vote.
That President Harris will secure n
large majority of these there appears
to be no longer any doubt among the
best-posted men on the street.
Philadelphia Stockholder: "The be
lief is now general that despite oppo
sition, the present Lehigh Valley man
agement will be maintained In power.
Handicapped as it has been during the
last few years It has, however, been
able to accomplish much good for. security-holders.
The so-called protec
tive committee in opposition to the
present management makes the an
nouncement that a public meeting of
stockholders will be held In this city
this week, when it Is contemplated to
fashion a ticket to be voted upon at
the ensuing election a ticket which it
was further stated will Include several
members of the present board of direc
tors. It is significant in connection
with the opposition that City Treasurer
McCreary, who was somewhat active
at the beginning -of the contest, has
withdrawn from further participation
Philadelphia Inquirer: "The com
panies are maintaining tidewater
prices firmly, and are even getting a
few orders nt the new circular, but a
considerable quantity of coal Is being
peddled out by middlemen who pur
chase largely before the advanced
prices were establishes The individu
al operators are not doing much. Com
plaint Is made by customers of the Le
high Valley that they find great dlffl
culty In getting deliveries over the
Reading tracks, as much as three
weeks being required to get coal
through. The Lehigh Valley, Lehigh
Navigation and shippers over the New
Jersey Central have practically sus
pended mining operations for the year.
The Reading will work three days this
week, as R has not yet filled Its quota
for the month. The New York compa
nies are generally arranging to ob
serve the allotment strictly. The ag
gregate output, however, continues In
excesss of the actual consumption."
"It might be supposed," says the New
York Sun, "that railroads which bear
usually geographical name a would
Bhow by their titles what points they
connect, but there are many exceptions
In this respect and some of them are
surprising. The St. Louis nnd San
Francisco railroad, for Instance, might
be supposed to run from St. Louis to
San Francisco. Actually It runs 327
miles west of St. Louis, The Minne
apolis and St. Louis railroad would np-
pear to run from Minneapolis to St
Louis. It actually runs from Minne
apolis to Angus, la., about half way to
St. Louis. The Omaha and St. Louis
railroad does not run from Omaha to
St. Louis, but from Omaha to Pattons-
burg. Mo. St. Louis is 267 miles further
east. The Toledo, St. Louis and Kan
sas City railroad (or "Clover Leaf, aa
It Is more generally called) runs from
Toledo to St. Louis, which Is the west
ern terminus of the road. Kansas City
Is 325 miles away. The Toledo, Peoria
and Western rallroad does not run from
Toledo to Peoria, but from the Indiana
state line to Warsaw, III. The New
York, Chicago. nnd St. Louis railroad
(or Nickel Plate,-ns It is universally
called) does not run from New York to
Chicago and St. Louis. ' It runs from
Buffalo to Chicago, nnd a passenger
upon it coming, enst. and landing at
lluffalo' would be over 400 miles from
New York, while'a passenger upon It
going' west and iandlng nt Chicago
would be'SOO miles from. St, Louis. The
Philadelphia . nd Erie railroad runs
from Sunbury, Pa., to Erie. The Penn
sylvania, ' Poughkeepsle and Boston
railroad Is ninety-six miles long, from
Slatlngton, Pa.,, to Campbell Hall, on
the Ontario and Western. The Fort
Worth and Denver City railroad Is
wholly In Texas, does not touch Denver
City, and does not run Into Colorado.
These peculiarities In railroad nomen
clature are supplemented by another.
Allthecoul-carrylng roads running lntl
tudlnnlly In the eastern states have as
part of their title the words, "and
Western." Here are some of them
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western
the New York, Lake Erie and Western.
the New York, Ontario and Western
the Lake -Erie and Western1; the Nor
folk and Western; the New York, Sus
quehanna and Western; the Pltsburg
nd Western, The quantity of coal
transported by these railroads colleo
Mvely amounts to more than 50,000,000
tons In a year." The Sun overlooks one
queerly named road, the "New York,

from traversing the 900 miles suggested
