The ac- Counts say; The case of two alleged > Japanese spies who have been given up by the United States consul general at Shanghai to almost certain dmh at the hands of the Chinese, attracts much attention and canses no little ill-feeling among Americans and Europeans in China. These young men had for some time' been pursuing their studies in Shanghai and like the majority of Japanese residents were in the habit of wearing Chinese dress. With tbe idea of serving their country in some indefinite way they undertook at the outbreak of the war to collect information "Which they thought would be valuable to their government. What they gave to the government has not yet transpired, but it is charged they made drawings of tbe defenses, in consequence of which they were arrested by native officers in the ' French quarter. Upon the Japanese consulates closing, it was rumored tbat all Japanese remaining in the country should look to local representatives of United States for such aid and advice as could be officially vouchsafed. Delivered to Chlpefe Onitodr. They were handed' over from the French consul to the American consul general, in spite of the protests and demands of the Chinese governor,'who insisted on their surrender. Mr. Jem ingham, consul general soon discovered that the suspected men had no connection with'the Japanese authorities and they acted wholly upon their own responsibility. It is understood that after due investigation be was disposed to ship them to Japan, bat on reporting the incident to Washington, he received peremptory instructions to deliver them ' to Chinese custody, This was done Sept. 5, to the intense dissatisfaction o£ tbe great majority ot aliens dwelling in 'Shanghai. It is believed by Americans that their government felt it imperative to inflict what was virtually a sentence of death upon these over zealous Japanese. Supply of Bice InraMolent. The governor of Canton published a 'decree forbidding all people under his authority to purchase or use goods 01 Japanese manufacture. An insurrection has broken out at Chaugshan in the Shan Toong province sufficiently formid adle to beat back the detachment o troops sent from Wei Hal Wei to quel 1 tbe disturbance. There is no evidence that the outbreak has any political significance, though hints to that effect appear in the- Chinese newspapers. The general distress In the neighborhood aw the apprehensions of famine sufficiently account for popular disorders in more than one locality. Fears are expressed in tbe north' of China tbat the supply o rice will he insufficint, not only for the people at large, but even for the de mands of the army and navy. The grand canal route from the southern rice growing districts is blocked above Chin King, and doubts have arisen as to th< practicability of transporting grain by sea. The difficulty of securing ships for tbe service is great and the conveyance •of food to the Chinese troops in Corea ! across the Gulf brPechU te completely •out off by the Japanese cruiser*, Emperor Eulogize* General rek.

Gorean* Engage In Conspiracy. Corean adventurers are taking advantage of present disorders to engage in piracy, on a s nail scale. Within the past fortnight several Japanese fishing boats have been seized at different points off the Corean! coast, their valuables stolen and crews barbarously maltreated, Warning has men seat from Shanghai that an attempt will be made to disguise » number of ships belonging to the China Merchant's Steam Navigation company and dispatch them under the British flag with munitions of war and provisions to plaees occupied by Chinese troops. Foreign neirspapen in Japan announce that the new war bonds cannot be held by aliens. This is an error. The de partment of j finance declares that the subscription is open to all persons irre spective of nationality. The Japanese newspapers continue, to charge EnglUh officials in China with unfair partiality toward that Empire. Trustworthy tvidenoe U thus far lacking, bat complaints are so numerous and direct that inquiry may become necessary. Grave discourtesy ia attributed to Admiral Fieeraantle in his recent correspondence with Admiral Ito.

All clay long a heavy wind had been blowing and nine alarms were urned in. The fire department was cattered about the city looking after the mall fires, when the alarm from the elevator was rung in. The scene of the Ire is Lower Albina, across the river rom the main part of the city and it was at least IS minutes before mote than me engine could respond to the general alarm. Fire Wat Uejrond Control. When the engines arrived, the fire was beyond control and in half an hour 'rom the time the fire started the docks lor half a mile were on fire. Nothing could be done but to let the fire bum tselfout. The fire started in tho dock oelow the Pacific Coast Elevator company's main building and the wind soon 3rove the flames to the elevator itself. The flames shot into the air 200 feet, making's beautiful sight in the twilight, The coal bunkers of the North Pacific Terminal company on the west were next attacked and were soon a seething mass of flames. On the east was the Dregon Railway and Navigation company's wharf, 400 feet in length, and this, too, was soon on fire. There was no means of getting water on the fire except from the river and the fire boat Is an improvisbed old scow and of very little service. This elevator contained nearly 600,000 bushels of wheat. The new plant of the Portland General Elective company, which had just arrived from Linn., Mass., was standing in the yards of the Terminal company on cars, not yet having been nnloaded. The plant occupied an entire train and the machinery was of th* moat expensive kind. The most of it was destroyed and the re mainder badly damaged. Two hundred freight cars, 80 of which were loaded with wheat, were destroyed. In the Oregon Railway and Navigation company's dock there were 1,800 tons of freight, consisting of wool, salmon, general merchandise aud cement, ail of which were destroyed with the dock, There were stored on the dock about IV ODO cases of salmon from the lower Columbia river and Puget sound, await ing shipment for tbe east. It was valued at about $10,000 and was partially iu sured. Supposed Three Men Fertihed, Every available locomotive at tbe terminal works was set to work moving freight cars out of danger, but the fire burned so rapidly that all could not be moved away. Sparks from the fire weni across the river and set on fire the bone- yard, but the fire was extinguished be fore any serious damage to the yard was done. The large steamboat Willamette Chief, moored at the yard, took fire am was burned. She was used aa a tow boat and was valued at about $45,000 Three men are supposed to have perished hi the elevator. Charles Anderson, a man named brown and one named Mur ray were seen at an upper story window of the elevator' and it is thought they were all burned. The losses, as near as can be ascertained at this time, as as follows: North Pacific Elevator company, $500,000 Portland General Electric company, ma ohinery, $50,000; coal • bunkers on thi North Pacific Terminals company, $40, 000; Oregon Railway and Navigation company, on dock, freight oars and steamer Willamette Chief, $250,000 merchandivo in docks, $900,<>00.
