WASHDTOTOJT, April 11.—The cable announcement that seven of Japan's eight conditions have 'been accepted by Peace Commissioner 'Li Hung Chang is very gratifying to diplomats here who have no longer any doubt that a peace proclamation will,speedily result.. As understood in Washington the eight conditions were as follows: 1. Independence of Corea. 2. Cession of For- losft. 3. Cession of Llau-Toae promontory, Deluding Port Arthur. ' 4.'War indemnity. 6. Admission of machinery into China iiad permission of foreignorg to establish factories. .6. Modification of I^Ikln tax and extension of the system of transit passeB for Imports.. 7. Opening certain Cbinesu rivers to commerce, in- cludlnpr tho Yang-Tae-Klung to Chung King, the Slung from Hunkow on the; Yung-Tse- Klang. tho Kanton river to Ouchow and the Woosuni? and its canals as far as Suchowand Hang Chow. 8. Railway privlleges"and similar concessions to tlje Japanese and foreign capitalists. A Stumbling lllock. In addition to these conditions it is believed that certain promises have been or will be exacted from China, the terms of which are to remain secret. The condition which it is thought has not yet been accepted.. by Li Hung Chang is that numbered three above, providing for the occupation of a portion of the territory known as the Regent's Sword, and tho citadel of Port Arthur. That this would be most strenuously opposed by China has all along been undoubted and it has been predicted that it might prove a stumbling block of such dimensions as to prevent peace unless some compromise could be agreed upon as to the length of the occupation, the Chinese being likely to Insist that it should not be permanent. All the other condition except that of indemnity have been the subject of diplomatic consideration for many years and all the treaty powers are as deeply interested in them as Japan'has been. The United States has been particularly active in urging the aboli tion of the Likin tax, which is not unlike the Octroi of France, though less reasonable and less limited than the French system. The independence of Corea has always been a contention, and the United States has firmly maintained that Corea was to be treated as an independent nation since her minister at Washington was recognized ten years ago. i,l's View of thu Ilcnult. The viceroy, Li, as he lies wounded at Shimonoseki, has indulged in some reflections that show the character of the man's mind. In conversation with with those about him he frankly admits the weakness displayed by China, and expresses regret for it forhersake, but at the same time thinks that the defeat of China will advance tha cause of civilization in the east, and is therefore not altogether regrettable. Doubt Ii Exprmied. LONDOST, April 11.—The Standard's Berlin correspondent says: "I learn from a Chinese source that there is reason to doubt the present optimistic expectations of peace. Japan has not abated her excessive demands, especially as to the cession of part of Manchuria, to which China on' no account will assent." -•:'. FLOODS SUBSIDE. /• Dmnner on the £>«lKw»re'Rlrer li Orep— Ulirli W»t«r lir'Vermont. EASTON, Pa., April ll.~The Delaware river is rapidly subsiding, it having fallen 8 feet since noon Wednesday. The lower part of the city is now above water and the residents are moving back into their homes.

RUTLAND, Vt., April 11.—The damage caused by the floods in this section reaches thousands of dollars. Otter creek is from-10 to 15 feet above its normal level. It flowed over or through many bridges, stopping all travel. The farm land between here and Bran don is flooded and looks like an inland sea as far as the eye can reach, and the white caps caused by a heavy north vind are rolling in farmhouse gardens, while fences and stacks of iaj r and lowland barns have been wept away and some live stock drowned.

OVER THE SIATEL SENATOR GOEBEL A MURDERER Seniattonal tragedy Enacted Thursday at Covtnptnn, Ky. CINCINNATI, April n.— A telegram has just been received in this city from Covington, Ky., saying- that Senator W. P. Goebel shot and instantly killed JohnL. Sanford, cashier of the Farm ers' and Traders' bank of that city. Goebel is under arrest. The two men had been political and business enemies for years. At half- past 1 o'clock Thursday afternoon Goebel was coming 1 out of the First national bank when he met Sanford, who drew a revolver and fired, the bullet striking 1 Goebel in the shoulder. The latter pulled his pistol and shot three times in quick succession, all three taking- effect and causing- almost instant death. Goebel then gave him' self up. Both men are prominent citizens of Covington. Goebel is a lawyer, and at present state senator from Kenton county. He is one of the best- known politicians in the state. TREASURY WAGON ROBBED.

The Standard Oil company Thursday morning 1 announced tha they would pay 81.50 per barrel at the ag-encies. This is an advance of fiftee cents since Wednesday. On the 0 City exchange sales were made a .03-t4 Thursday morning-. May Reach Two Dollar Mario Oil sold as hijj-h as SI.SO on th Oil City exchange Thursday. Th market has since reacted and is no\ offered at SI. 70. Many old oil men think oil will sell at two dollars, pe barrel or over. C'nunu of Excitement. The cause of the excitement is gen erallj admitted to bu sheer exhaustion of the known fields for what is calJei Pennsylvania oil. The price is expected to keep steadily rising dur ing- the summer, and some producers are sanguine enough to believe that 1S93 will see S3 oil. The price must stay up now until the production exceeds the consumption, and unless some at present unknown field is struck that cannot be. The opening of new wells and the developing of old ones will only have "a slight effect on the production, and even if a new well is found it will be months before the supply can be tapped and put on the market in quantities sufficient to affect prices much. The Pennsylvania oil over which this excitement has been created has a parafline base, and that property in it is as much responsible for the advance as anything. Oils produced in other parts of this country and abroad have a black asphalt base, and of that kind there is enough.
