Durrant Saipeoted of Belnff Ke«pon«lbl« for Mw. Kilo Fonvth'n Disappearance SA>" FjtA-NCrsco, April 10,—A further mystery is added to the affair of the Emanuel Baptist church by the discovery that Mrs. Ella Forsyth, a member of Emanuel congregation and an acquaintance of Minnie Williams and Blanche Lamont and also of Currant, the accused murderer, has been missing for a week. George W. Forsyth, husband of Mrs. Ella Forsyth. the missing woman whom Durrant is':suspected of making- way with, positively denies that she ever visited Emanuel church or knew anybody connected with it. He believes she is drowned in San Francisco bay. Ddrrant, the alleged murderer of Blanche Lament, cried out in his sleep several times during Monday night, as though suffering from :i hideous nightmare. He covered his face with his hands as if protecting it from some enemy. The police have not yet formally charged him with the murder of Blanche Lamont, Evidence now at hand is sufficient to warrant the charge being made, but the impression seems to prevail that the punishment that will follow his conviction on the first charge will make the preferment of a second charge a useless formality. Durrant was present at the coroner's inquest Tuesday, having been brought down from his cell under strong, guard. He showed effects of the great mental strain which he had been under, but manifested complete indifference to the procaedings. The streets in the vicinity were thronged with people. TREATY SIGNED.

LOXDOX, April 16.—The Times correspondent in Shanghai says: Li Hung Chang's son-in-law telegraph that the treaty of peace was signed in Shimono- seki Monday, April 16, and that the terms are: l. ludfpendenco of Corea. 2. Jnpan's retention of the coiuiuerod places. 3. .Inpiin's re- Lcution of territory east nf tho Liao river. 4. Permanent cession of Formosa. 5. Indemnity of t-100.030.000. 6. AD offensive and defensive alliance between Clilna -and Japan. NoLubly JuHccuritti). The United Press is authorized by the Japanese legation here to state that the Times' version of the Chiuese- .lapanese treaty of peace published Tuesday morning is notably inaccurate, both as regards omissions and commissions. Japan, the Japanese envoy declares, has never asked for a.n offensive and defensive alliance with China, nor in regard to the commercial points of difference has she ever asked anything bej-ond the most favored nation treatment which hitherto Japan has not enjoyed. D.xlurcn Term) of Peuco Impoulble. The Globe, commenting on the terms of the treaty of peace alleged to have been signed by the Japanese and Chinese plenipotentiaries in Shimonoseki Monday, says that provisions two, three, four and six respectively, allowing Japan to retain the conquered phices.-to retain the territory east of the Liao river, ceding Formosa permanently to Japan and making an offensive and defensive alliance between ,lapau and China are simply impossible. Europe, the Globe declares, will not assent to any conditions which place China's latent resources under Japanese control, no matter whether in war or in commerce. A dispatch to the Globe from Yokohama says the peace conference sat five hours Monday and it is believed to have been the final sitting. The Chinese plenipotentiaries are preparing to leave for home. Crcdltud ut WitMlilngton. WASHINGTON, April 10.—It is be- Jigjzed , at the^. state department that "the' terms~"of" peate ngreed'upo'n"Bb- tvveen China and Japan, as reported from London, are substantially correct. From information heretofore received the department officials -understand that the conditions include the independence of Corea; I 'permanent cession of Formosa, an .offensive and defensive alliance between China and Japan. The last condition was expected to be in the form of a secret protocol and not made public. Two other conditions, viz.: Japan's retention of conquered places and of territory east of the Liao river may be correct. The fifth condition, fixing the indemnity at '8100,000,000 is believed to be incorrect unless it refers to a gold payment. If the amount of indemnity is payable in silver, which is the currency of both China and Japan, and the most probable to be settled upon, the amount of indemnity, it is thought, will be much larger than 8100,000,000. Cabloemm Confirming glcnlng of Treaty. WAMiEfGTOX, April 16.—The reported signing of the treaty of peace between China and Japan is confirmed by a (Cablegram received Tuesday morning from Hon. J. W.
