Els majestj', having In view' this unhappy oc- \ currenoe, commanded the Japanese plenlpo-;. tentUrlcs to consent to a temporary armistice,, without conditions. This, was communicated;, to tho Chinese plenipotentiary." ; ArmlHtlce OBidally Confirmed. WASHINGTON, March 30. — Secretary Gresham receivad a- cablegram -from' Minister 'Dun at Tokio Saturday'morn- ing, officially confirming the armistice' between Japan and China. '.. " Uff«ct of the Order. Minister Kurino says that the effect of the emperor's order will be 'the im- 1 mediate cessation of aggressive hostilities, and that the Japanese armies will make no further advance aa long as the armistice lasts. Some fighting may occur if provoked by the Chinese, but the second step toward peace has been practically taken, the arrival of Li Hung Chang and the satisfactory character of his plenipotentiary credentials having been the first The minister is of the. opinion tha,t the action of the emperor was influenced by the confidence his majesty reposed in the successful conclusion of the peace negotiations through the ultimate acceptance by Li Hung Chang of the terms-stipulated by Japan. "It was immediately after the close of the second session of the peace plenipotentiaries," said the minister, "that Ll Hung Chang was prostrated by a fanatic, and up to that time nothing had been considered' but China's request for an armistice peuding the consideration of the terms ef peace. The proposition had been met by the pre- bfentation of certain conditions from the Japanese plenipotentiaries. The discussion of, the terms of final peace had not been entered -upon. No Uenlre to Humiliate China. "The emperor's command of temporary armistice is also a refutation' of the idea that Japan is disposed to;: humiliate China or merely to acquire: territory. Japan has gained the end of demonstrating Japanese importance in eastern affairs." i- Minister Kurino promptly notified,' Secretary Gresham of the armistice,; and it was made known to President; Cleveland, who expressed his gratification. .More Fighting. . / LONDON, March 30.—The Times' Shanghai correspondent says: ...

The Times says it is understood that official news of the armistice has been received in London. LI Hung Chmng'i Condition Serious. • WASHINGTON, March 30. — The Chinese legation has received a ca- .blegram from Peking stating that the condition of Li Hung Chang is still a matter of doubt. The authorities regard tie information aa presenting a later phase tHan the recent unofficial reports which dismissed the wounds as of slight importance. It does not express fears of serious results, but th« tenor of the dispatch is to indicate that it is still too early to feel assured that. Prince Li is entirely out of danger. - . evangelist Earle D»ad. BOSTOX. March 30.—Eer. A. B. Earle, the well-known evangelist, died at his home in Newton Saturday morning 1 , aged 83.

WASHINGTON, March 30.—Comptroller Bowler has decided that the "bullion roH T ' of the treasury department is no longer legal, and the sixty people, mostly women, upon it were Saturday ON UP GEADE. Easiness Outlook Reported Favorable by Commercial Agencies. Indications of Improvement Many and .Satisfactory — Prices Generally Advance—Situation Reviewed. KEW YOSK, March 30.— R. - G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of trade says: "Signs of Improvement arc all the more satisfactory because neither accompanied nor spparontly produced by a speculative craie. Dealings In stock». cotton and whom are not divertlni; all tho Interest and capital from productive Industry and icsitlmaio trade, though these products are all a shade stronger. But railroad earnings, bank clearings and industrial indications arc more encouraging this week lieflni lit the Uottom. -It is a remarkable feature that the lifting tbls year begins at the bottom, so to speak: raw materials are raised before there is tiny larger demand for their finished products, a tting not often done with success. Hides rose, then leather, and then shoes: cotton rose, and afterwards some cotton goods; coke was advanced, and afierwards bessemer pig. In all those canes It is reasoned that tho larger demand for consumption, though yet wanting, roust come when it Is seen that prices are go- Ing up Tho Leavht-r Truilo. ••Hoisting of prices from the bottom seems measurably successful In leather nnd shoes. 'Ihe combination of leather producers has been strong enough to resist prolonged delay In buying b.v shoe jobbers, and roost of them have made contracts atpurt of the advance In prices demanded by shoe manufacturers, though their orders are as yet smaller tuan usual. while some heavy orders have been talcen at old prices. Cotton and Wool. ••Raw cotton lias been hoisted until a strong- market for goods resulted wr.h some advances ' in price. The tone of the ijoods market has been declrtedly improved, though it does not vei appenr that retail distribution has correspondingly Increased. Tho stocks of r«tail dealers are light, and when they feel that prices are bound to rise, the demand may grow rapidly. ••In the woolen business cancellations in some lines have been startling in magnitude, many mills which supposed their whole products' sold llnding themselves in great need of customers. This seems to be mainly in low-grade goods, inferior quality being the common complaint, but delays through strikes also play a part. while offers of cheap, foreign goods are not to be overlooked. Quite largo orders have been taken by foreign agents for finer worsteds and woolens, and all the way from the poorest shoddy to the best goods the competition will doubtless be sharp for more than one season. Wheat, Corn. Etc. -Guesses about the condition of wheat have v»ied widely this week, and prices not much, the net advance being Ik cents. Corn IB a cent lower, while pork 18 75 cent» per barrel, and lard and'hogs 15 cents per 100 pounds. Favorable Indications . "A-«u»r.t/u*3 -Is that oiclratnfo=-^»"»*"- — ^ principal oloar- ^nir-nouses for the week -are. 2L5. per cent larger than last year, and only 14.1 per cent less than in 1893. which may probably moan the advent of decidedly better conditions. "Uttlc enoouraglng can bo said of foreign trade exports for March being smaller than last year, while Imports for the full month will doubtless show some Increase. Ratoa for money are higher, as usual just before April I,and tbo commercial demand is: ioroewhat larger. - _ Tl>« Failure Record. "Several' large failures this month have swelled the aggregate of liabilities for three weeks ot. March to $ll,8TI,m. against $10,061.091 last year, ot which K!,411.«i were of manufacturing concerns, against .J-1,459,118 last year and $4,8*4,879 ' in trading 'concerni, against M.8*S.O»« last jear. The failures to It week have been 2*1 In. the United States, against 2S8 last year, and 4! in Canada, against BO last year. But the-recent Increase Indicates pust rather thnc recent conditions of unsoundness," Situation at Various Points. Bradstreet's says: "Moderate gains In trade are reported from LouU-ville. wltb continued distribution oJ large volumes of staples from Chicago, St. Loul» and Kansas City. Duluth reports sales ' from » to 40 per cent larger than laibyjir. ^ t • St. Paul general trade li fair;, at Mlnneopolls it Is unchanged. A» Sioux Falls, S.
