TiE.v-TsiJf, April 17.— An imperial edict lias lieen issued authorizing 1 Li JIunp Clianfr to sign the terras of peace in accordance with the Japanese ultimatum. The indemnity to be paid by China is 200,000,000 tuels. The edict further authorizes 1-5 Jhu.ifr Chang to grant possession of the Lioa Tung- peninsula to the 40th degree of latitude and the island of Formosa to the Japanese; also to consent to the opening o! Peking and four TIU\V ports to<;ommerce and to giving' the Japanese power to open cotton factories and other industries in China. Another imperial edict RTants sick leave to the viceroy of Canton and orders his retirement to bis native province. TreuUim Exclmnecd in Three \Vnnk«, LONDON, April 17.—A dispatch to the Central News from Tokio says that peace ratifications will be exchanged within three weeks and that'the armistice has been extended to midnight on Way S. Concerning thn Terms ot Ffnce. WASirLN-axox, April 17.—The Chinese imperial edict sent Tuesday night from Tien-Tsin is accepted among- officials and diplomats here as setting at rest the conflicting reports as to the final terms of peace, and as showing that the first reports via London were inaccurate in, their details. The indemnity ot 200,000,000 taels is a compromise. Japan first demanded 300,000,01)0 taels, but on the solicitation of Prince Li threw off 100,000,000, At the Chinese legation it is stated that the tael varies in value, but that the present value of the customs or treasury tael, which is undoubtedly the one in which payment will be made, is SI.HO in Mexican silver, or'about seventy-five cents in gold. The Central News (London) correspondent in Tokio Icarus that the Chinese indemnity to .lupan is to be paid in silver in flve yearly installments. The edict that Japan is to occupy the Liao TUHR- peninsula up to the •JOth degree of latitude settles the important point that she is to have the R-roat fortress of Port Arthur and the immediately surrounding territory, as foreshadowed in these dispatches. The Liao Tung peninsula is a small point of land jutting southward into the gnlf of 1'echili, with Port Arthur at its extreme point. The 40th degree of latitude cuts across the main land whore the little peninsula broadens • into the mainland of Manchuria. 1'ort Arthur a Vital Point. The edict does not state whether Japan gets this acquisition permanently or nntil the indemnity is paid. iShe has contended on having it permanently, as it would give Japan command of the Gulf of Pechili leading- to Peking. If the occupation is temporary it will give Japan a military command over China as long as the occupation lasts. .The duration of the occupation is most important, ~and on this point undoubtedly will depend any action European powers may take- The permanent occupancy of the island of Formosa has been settled for some time. The opening "of Peking and four new ports of commerce, marks the introduction of modern methods in the interior of Ihina. Japan has gained the privilege of establishing her cotton and other factories in China, but it remains to be seen whether Japanese capital will invest in the enterprises, or the Chinese will buy these modern fabrics. The edict makes a significant omission as to the reported Japan-China alliance offensive and defensive, which, f consummated, wonld have given "the Orient to the Orientals," The Japanese and Chinese officials in Washington lave never credited the report ol this alliance. LI Return) Home. LOSDOX, April 17.—A Central News dispatch from Tokio says the Chinese peace envoys started for Tien-Tsin Wednesday afternoon and that the Japanese plenipotentiaries will return to Hiroshima Thursday. A dispatch from Hong Kong says it Is expected there that a revolution against the reigning dynasty will be begun on Friday. The leading Chinese of Canton are cominjr to Hong Kong in large numbers- japan a Grnat Power. LONDON, April 17.—The Daily News, referring to the Chino-Japanese alliance, which is said to be one of the conditions of the treaty of peace, says that under "the conditions such an alliance would be so much more to the advantage -of China that it can scarcely imagine Japan proposing it "Japan,"' says the News, "has emerged, from the conflict a great power. There is no precise parallel in the., history of the world to her marvellous adaptability and imitative genius." To Revise Terms of Peace. BERLIX, April 17.—The St. Petersburg correspondent of the Frankfurter Zcitunsr telearaDhs that the French, and Russian governments are about to convoke a meeting of the powers for the purpose of revising the terms of peace agreed upon by the Chinese and Japanese representatives.

The enormous sum of $1, 13'.>,4-I3 is totally unaccounted for, to say nothing of other items which appear all right at first glance and which are offset by figures on the books.
