The exact particulars of the terms of settlement could not be learned, but it is understood that in response to the •urgent aud repeated requests of the Chinese plenipotentiary for an abatement of the demands originally made the Japanese plenipotentiaries have granted imp6rtant concessions. Glve» Great Satisfaction. Great satisfaction is expressed here .at the information that the peace negotiations have been practically concluded between China and Japan eight days before the termination of the time fixed for the termination of the amnesty. So far as can bo learned a formal treaty has not been signed and may not be before Saturday. Meanwhile there is a possibility that Li Hung Chang, the Chinese representative, may object at the last moment and another postponement ocour. This is regarded, however, as only a possibility and not a probability, inasmuch I as the plenipotentiaries have devoted a fortnight to their -,vork and the conclusions have been reached after the most careful and deliberate consideration.

ALLIANCE, 0., April 12.—The town of Minerva, 10 miles south of here, was greatly excited Friday morning on account of the attempted murder 01 a prominent citizen. John Yengling, son of G. F. Yengling, president oi the Minerva Banking company, quarreled with his wife Thursday evening and attempted to shoot. She escaped from the house when Yengling began to beat his little daughter. Thomas E. Booth, one of the best kuawn citizens .of the town and the largest wool buyer in the state, was attracted by the screams of the child. He attempted to rescue the little girl when Yang- ling, with a curse, fired two shots at Mr. liooth. One bullet entered Mr. Booth's head, going out through the tongue. As the scene of the shooting was on the public square, ci crowd soon arrived and Yengling was subdued and placed in jail. The jail is being strongly guarded, as Mr. Booth's condition Friday morning was critical and the feeling against Yenglintr is intense. CAN'T EXTEND THE TIME.

When the signature of Li Hung Chang shall have been affixed to the treaty, peace will then be formally declared. Tho Chinese viceroy was clothed with plenary powers when he came to Shimonoseki and any action taken by him, therefore, is definitive. Ii Only it Hlult. With the prospect of the immediate conclusion of a treaty of peace between China and Japan, the utterances of the St. Petersburg- Novoe Vremya, threatening opposition to Japan by land and sea if Great Britain should accede to Japan's demands in regard to Manchuria and Korea excite only quiet laughter in well-informed circles, 'ihe fact that the Kovoe Vremya is the semi-official organ of Russia tends simply to discredit those utterances the more strongly. Such utterances, it is said, are often made by this organ advisedly, the purpose being to disguise Russia's real intentions. China is hoping that European intervention may yet save her humiliation. If Russia should interfere, the other powers would naturally hold aloof. What more likely then. It is asked, than that Russia should throw out an intimation that she will oppose Japan, and as a result of these intimations preserve the balance between all parties unti Japan shall have forced China to ac cept her terms? In other words, Eus- sia's sudden change of front is regarded as a "bluff." YOKOHAMA, April 12.—It Is stated here on reliable authority that unless peace is concluded within the period of the armistice the truce will not be tended and the Japanese armies will in May advance upon Peking., which latter city, it is claimed, can be in- rested by the Japanese troops within two weeks after the march begins. Tho Income Tiixcn Min April IS. WASHINGTON, April 12.—"There is no power vested in this department," telegraphed Commissioner Miller late Thursday afternoon, "to extend the time for making returns under the income tax law." The telegram was sent to Thomas T. Eckert, president of Western Union Telegraph company. With the supplemental instruction sent to collectors of internal revenue Thursday, together with the telegrams as to keeping open their offices beyond the regular hours, Commissioner MiJler has closed up as completely as he can his connection with the enforcement of what remains of the income tax law. Collectors and those subject to the law must do the rest, and must do it before the close of business on next Monday, April 15, or else be subject to the penalties imposed by the law. DON'T LIKE MART/. Selection for President of " New Republic" of Cuba Onuses DIsHiillsfuctlon, HAVANA, April 12. — Marti, who was selected as president of the new republic at the convention held at Guataiiaro, province of Puerto Principe, has been proclaimed by the insurgents as their chief executive. ltcanriot-he--deni.e'd"that considerable dissatisfaction exists among the rebels because of Marti!s election.

Uolnware Canal Badly E ASTON,'- Pa., April 12.— The Delaware canal has been greatly damaged by high water and it will be nearly 2 months before traffic can be resumed.

Y., April 12.— Gov. Morton will Saturday issue a proclamation offering a reward of 31,000 for the capture of Oliver' Curtis Perry, who recently escaped from the Matteawan asylum for insane criminals. PITTSBURGH, Pa., April 12.—The extraordinary movement in the oil market this week from S1.17 last Saturday to SI. SO Thursday, with a net advance of 52 cents, has revived the fever to the intensest degree. There never was a time in the history of the business when the wild-cat operator was more 'alert than now. Men are in the field night nud day looking for possible developments. Xhouluiulit or W«1U lleinff BoriMl. Some idea of the activity in field operations may be had when it is stated that April 1 the number of new- wells drilling and rigs in course of construction was 1,401. The monthly average of now operations last rear was only 232 and the total number of wulls completed was only 3,MS for the entire year. Whether the present .•search is successful or not there will be an enormous amount of money spent in prospecting. The cost of drilling a well ranges from §1,200 to f'J.OUO. The amount of iron easing required for each well varies from l,. r >00 to 3,000 feet. Estimating \ho present number of new operations at 1,500, and the cost of each well at S-;,000, it is scon that not less than Sti,000,000 is now being expended in new work in all the fields. The extent of the industry is shown by a few comparative figures. The total production of gold in the United States last year was S«,000,000. The production of oil for the sume period was 48,:>00,000 barrels, which at to-day's cash price represents a value of 372 500.000. This quantity fell short 6,300,000 barrels in supplying the demand, which was drawn from old stocks, reducing the latter to less than -1,000,000 barrels April 1. Standard Oil Company Actlv*. Within it few weeks the Standard Oil company is estimated to have purchased ?U, 000,000 worth of territory from individual producers. The most important of these purchasers are tile KarniwhaOil company's property in the Sisterville field for £050,000, and the eighty-eight wells of the.Wheeling Gas company.in-thc McDonald field for S5. r >0,0()0. Jump* Up Higher. TOLEDO, 0., April 12.— Ohio crude oil jumped up 24J;f cents Friday morning. North of Lima is quoted SI.07, south of Lima SI. 05, and Indiana 07 cents. The entire Ohio field is going wild iind intense activity in putting down new wells is the result. A liooni Without » Parallel. On. CITY, Pa.., April 32.— The boom in oil markets this week stands without a parallel since 187C. The market opened at SI-GO, an advance of 10 cents u. barrel over Wednesday's closing price. It fluctuated widely during the day, reaching as high as Sl.SO, the highest price since December 20, 1S77, when Sl-81# was touched, and closed atW.BO bid. P'-.oducers and not speculators are reaping the benefit of this advance in oil. Prior to 18PO the oil exchanges were the curse of the oil producers. In 1882-3, the. last big advance in prices, the oil country went mad over gambling on the exchanges. Oil producers would sell their credit balances to buy certificates on margin and the large producers would deposit their certificates with brokers' to buy options. Kow they are selling their'crude and banking the cash. There will be unparal leled activity in the fields this month. Retain to Reopen the Cm»o, I.vniAXAroLis, Ind., April 12.—Th» supreme court has refused to grant a, rehearing in the fee and salary case.
