September 28.—The department of state is ift rreceijst of ft fepdtt on the trade 6f China Jot 1804* predated by the se'cfetary of the British legation at Peking. The most frematUable feattitfg of this ttade is fdufid in the fact that, aotwithstahd* ing the Japanese iVar and other Utit&ward circumstances* good results Wefe obtained, ftnd that a promising revival of commercial prosperity has set id. Both exports and imports show an advance and the customs and revenue were increased by the division of trade with the one exception of Indian.opium. The receipts from the exports exceeded the maximum col* lected during the most prosperous days of the tea trade. In accounting for this condition, the author of the report says no ports Were blockaded during the war and the usual calamities of war were almost totally absent. He therefore concludes that the revival was due to the "inherent staunchness of the position.'' M. LOUIS PASTEUR DEAD.

HAHD ON CAPITALISTS. Sensational Report of the Illinois Bateau. SPRINGFIELD, Ills., September 28.— The most sensational report ever issued by a state bureau has been inado public by the Illinois bureau of labor statistics. It charges that the great majority of the wealthy tax payers of Illinois and more especially of Chicago are perjurers; .that the assessors are guilty of malfeasance in office; that the present financial condition of Chicago is directly traceable to the corrupt system of taxation, and that the "deplorable condition of workingmen is due to the liberty destroying methods of taxation which prevail in Illinois." The report is made up of a mass of tables compiled from official reports' of assessors, banks, real estate transfers, the state board of. equalization and the various municipal departments to which the agents of the bureau had access. After, declaring •i!hat "it is the purpose of the report to expose existing methods of taxation in Illinois, with special reference to their effect upon the labor interests," the report proceeds to review the work of former bureaus. The stand is taken that it is idle to dwell upon the wages and condition of the average wage earners of the state. The bureau contends that their condition "is proved by evidence so clear and abundant that the completion of any further statistics merely to prove it would be wasted effort." AN AMERICAN IN PRISON. Story From Armenia -/Which Demands ail Investigation.

The porte eventually instructed the authorities at Aleppo to allow the consul to investigate the case ana visit the prisoner, HIS TITLE LAPSES. No Lieutenant General After This Pate, WASHINGTON, D.
