Vicious Attnck AIndo at St. Donatui Upon n SlolRlilnff Party. BBLI.KVUK, Dec. 30.—A serious cutting affray took place at St. Donatus, a small village in the northern extremity of Jackson county. Gus Felderman, together with several brothers and sisters, had been visiting with another brother several miles north of St. Donatus, and they were returning home in a bob-sled. While driving through St. Donatus a man by the name of Mollentor, from Gordon's Ferry, suddenly sprang on the sled ' from the rear and commenced slashing at the occupants with a hugo knife. He first struck at one of the girls, but missed his aim. He then slashed Felderman on the face, cutting his nose off, and, with a second blow, narrowly missed severing his jugular vein, leaving a huge gash in his throat. A third blow cut the flesh over the heart, Uy this time assistance had arrived and the man was disarmed. The victim is in a dangerous condition and may not live. The two men were almost strangers, and no motive is assigned for the attack. A Slonx City Officer I* Found Guilty of Ai- sault nod Battery.

Various lodges of the city, which held their meetings in the building and had their paraphernalia stored therein, suffered quite heavy losses, and tho third story of the building is practically ruined.

IOWA CONIJENSEU. and iron Great Britain strike* a Decidedly Hostile Btatt ill the Fat Kant. LONDON, Dec. 28.— Great Britain has struck its first blow against Russia and the far east. This as nothing less than compelling, the Corean king to restore to his office the British adviser to the Corean customs department. This step also means that, if England can help it, the government of the hermit kingdom shall not pass under Muscovite control. The exciting news conies in the shape of a dispatch from Shanghai, as follows: "It is reported that seventeen British war ships are off Chemulpo, Corea, Southwest of Seoul, supporting the British consul's protest, really amounting to an ultimatum against tho king's practically yielding the government of Corea into the hands of tho Russian minister. The protest is especially directed against the dismissal of McLeavy Brown, British adviser to the Corean customs, in favor of the Russian nominee. Tho news has produced consternation at Seoul, which is heightened by the knowledge that Japan has a fleet of thirty war ships awaiting the result of the British representation that Japan fully supports. Japan is irritated by tho arrival of Russian troops at Corea, and it is believed that she will oppose them. According to advices from Tokio, Japan has offered to assist the officers at Pekin in drilling the Chinese army and to consent to a postponement of the war indemnity. Many of the viceroys and Pekin officials favor the proposal." According to a dispatch to the Daily Mail from Shanghai, it is reported there, from reliable sources, that a British force landed at Chemulpo on Saturday aad caused the reinstatement of McLeavy Brown. Tho same dispatch refers to "a native rumor that the union jack has been hoisted on an island in the mouth of tho river Yangtse-Kiang." LONDON, December 39.—A dispatch from Shanghai snys: "It is reported that a Japanese fleet of twenty warships is waiting near Goto island outside of Nagasaki, fully equipped for war, and only waiting instructions. This includes the Yash- inm and tho Fuji, two of tho finest vessels in tho Japanese navy, and the Chen Yuen, that WHS captured from China. The Japanese fleet, it is understood is acting in touch with tho British squadron under Vice Admiral Sir Alexander Butler, commander-in- chief of the China station." Japan will certainly oppose a permanent Russian occupation of Port Arthur, It is expected that the Japanese fleet will attempt to to prevent the landing of reinforcements from Odessa for the protection of the Russian trans-Asi- atic railway in Manchuria. SHANGHAI, Dec. 30.—It is reported here that the admiral of the French fleet has hoisted the French flag on Ilai-Nan Island. The Chinese offered no opposition. Hai-Nan Island is off the south coast of China and separates the Gulf of Tonquiu from the China Sea. It has an estimated area of 12.000 square miles and a population of 1,000,000 Chinese, exclusive |.of wild tribes in the interior. LONDON, Dec. 31.—The Daily Mail has received telegrams from Hong Kong and Tonquin denying the report of the French occupation of the island of Hai-Nan, but it regards it as morally certain that Hai-Nan was occupied about a fortnight ago, when Port Arthur was occupied by the Russians, the other coincidence forming the suspicion that France> <ind Russia were acting in concert. NO FLAG OF TRUCE American Captain Threatened With Mob Violence In n Spanish fort. NKW HAVEN, Conn., Dec. 30.—Captain George L. Kelsey, of the schooner Wallace Ward, just arrived from Barcelona, Spain, insists that the American consul at that place fears mob violence and is unable to keep the American flng flying from Uncle Sam's vessels. Ho put into port there September 16, remaining three days. At first the Stars and Stripes floated proudly from the masthead, but Spanish loiterers were attracted by it nnd gathered by the side of the vessel, threatening violence. The American consul heard of a rumor that a crowd proposed burning the vessel and sent word to Capt Kelspy to haul down his flag. Capt. Kelsey defied the Spanish, but the next day the consul repeated the advice and Capt. Kelsey was reluctantly persuaded to store the Stars and Stripes below decks during the remainder of the. stay. HANNA'S CHANCES SLIMMER. Will Get Nancim Nomination But May Not lie Elected.

Therefore, En land, continues Lord Salisbury, whose interest is but slight, would not be justified in acceding to the proposals Lord Saliebury's answer emphasizes the policy of England not to interfere in Canada's foreign relations.

To protect American interests, the navy department, upon the request of the state department, has telegraphed orders to the gunboat Mariette, which is at Mare Island, directing her to proceed as soon 1 as possible to La Libertad, and remain until further orders.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 30.—Secretary Gage, when questioned fts to the truth- of the published report that he had endered his resignation to the presi- lent and that ihe had firmly declined with many expressions of care and appreciation of his ability as shown in his administration of the treasury department, was not inclined to discuss the matter at length, but said that he had not tendered his resignation nor had he any reason to believa that he and the president were not in substantial accord on the great questions now before the people. The report he said probably sprung from a remark he had made to intimate friends to the effect that not for anything would he embarrass the president and if he saw he were doing so he would resign at once. He added: "A cabinet officer ought to be and always is ready to surrender his office at the call of his chief, but I have not the slightest reason to believe that such action on my. part iseven remote- desired by the president. The desires of other people in that direction 1 am not disposed to consider." UNCLE SAM TO ACT. Morgan Says Chinese Problem Is Strictly Our litiHlness. New York dispatch: According to the Washington correspondent, of -the Herald, Senator Morgan, of Alabama, of the committee on foreign relations, said that it would bo impossible for the United States to remain complacent should European nations undertake dismemberment of China. Morgan said: "If it involves the abroga' tion of the treaties of this country we would be left to make terms again with each European nation separately in tho territory to which its sovereignty is extended. Therefore unless the powers now ambitious for territorial extension take into account the importance of American com-/ mercial relations with China it will be necessary for the government to intervene in self-defense. If the territory is given up merely for a time there will be a mixed responsibility and it is a good time for intervention and the exercise of American diplomacy. German occupation 01 part of China and the prospective occupation of other parts by vai-ious European nations is nn effort to complete the cordon of offense to American commerce from Vladivostock to Marseilles or to Liverpool. That cordon is being stretched to contract the trade of 000,000,000 people who have direct trade and intercourse with the Pacific ocean. There is a great deal in the Chinese question that vitally interests Americans and which seems to demand immediate considex-ation from the state department and congress." LUETOERT TRIAL IS A FARCK. State Will Not Furnish Short Hand — Evidence in Lonjj. CHICAGO, Dec. 31.— Unable to convince the court that the prosecution in the Luetgert case should furnish the defense with a duplicate stenographic report of the proceedings on account of the inability of Luetgert to pay for stenographers, the attorneys for the big sausage maker have commenced trying to take a verbatim report of the testimony in long hand. The consequence was that little pro'. gross was made. Mr. Harmon said he will -take proceeding's verbatim if it takes six months, and in case Luetgert is unable to make arrangements for stenographers to do the work, the trial from present indications may be stretched out indefinitely.
