By Telegraph to the Morning Star. Baltimore, Md., November 15. Negotiations ! are pending for the sale of the Lake!

Reports of Imminence of War Between the Two Countries Denied by the Russian Minister, to Korea. By Telegraph to tne Horning Star. Washington, November 15. In view of the reported imminence of war between Russia and Japan, concerning rights in Korea, the st tement made by Mr. Alexander Pavloff, the Russian minister to Korea, who happens to be in Washington as the guest of Count Cassini, the Russian ambassador here, are most opportune and important Mr. favloff is an accomplished diploma tist with extended experience id the Far East and was on the Stan of Count Cassini at Pekin when Russia acquired Port Arthur and Taliep Wan, and later was advanced to the post of min ister to Korea. . Mr. Pavloff was seen at the Russian embassy to-day and spoke quite frankly of the recent war rumors. He said : "I left Korea only four months ago. going to St Petersburg, so that my in formation is quite direct and official, and I assure you there is no basis what ever for reports of a conflict between Hussia and Japan over Korea. Ua tne contrary, the two countries have en tered into formal compacts by which it is agreed that the independence of Korea shall be maintained. These com pacts were concluded at St Petersburg and Tokio, and they are so explicit that the reports of conflict as to sovereignty over Korean territory show an entire ignoratfce of the written agreement un der which Russia and Japan are acting towards Korea. "The war rumors appear to be based on an alleged conflict over the port of Masanpo. It happens that 1 am per sonally familiar with this affair, as it developed b-fore I left Korea. Mas anpo is one of the new treaty pons on the southern coast of Korea. There has been no Question as to the freedom of the port to all nations alike, and no questions of favor or discriminations between Russia and Japan) have occurred as to the port But a purely personal and private difference arose months ago as to the ownership of cer tain lots at Masanpo. Russian resi dents had secured a right to purchase the lots and were awaiting the assent of the Korean government. Pending this consent Japanese citizens pur chased the same rights. This, how ever, was purely a private difference, in which the governments of Russia and Japan had no part." UNITED STATES BONDS.

INSURGENT LEADER CAPTURED Aguioaldo's Orders to the Filipinos Heavy Rains Roads Impassable A Fiht Near Jaro The Snln Islands Closed to Commerce. ' By Cable to the Morning Star. Manila, November 15. General Hughes, with parts of the Nineteenth and Twenty sixth regiments, moved from Iloilo Thursday, November 9th, to Otton, six miles west, for the pur pose of capturing Santa Barbara, the rebel stronghold, ten miles north of Iloilo. Heavy rain preceded the move ment and the roads were in places impassable. - The same night Colonel" Carpenter, with the Eighteenth regi ment and battery G, of the Sixth ar tillery, moved westerly from Jaro to connect with General Hughes. Col. Carpenter was forced to return to Jaro on account of the roads, and the entire movement was himpered by lack of proper transportation. Com panyTG, of the Twenty-sixth regi menthad the only fighting. When three miles out of Jaro this company charged the rebel trenches and three of the enemy were killed. One Amer ican was wounded. General Hughes, November 12tb, occupied Tagbanan and Guimbal, on the southern coast and also Cordova, in the interior. The enemy did not oppose General Hughes' advance. Recent orders, from Aguinaldo, found in the trenches said: "Do not oppose the Americans' advance. Burn the villages las they are evacuated. Divide the forces into bands of forty. Harass the Americans on every occa sion." Araneta, the rebel Leader of the islan i of Panay, was captured at Tag banan while attempting to pass the lines into Iloilo. Two battalions of the Twenty sixth will garrison Iloilo and Jaro. San Miguel, visible from Iloilo, has been burned by the rebels. ' It is reported that an expedition, evading the navy, recently landed arms and ammunition on the Antique coast, and that the rebels threaten op position with an armed force of 3,000 men. These stories are not believed. All ports of the Sulu islands outside of the American possessions have been ordered closed to commerce. STEAMSHIP ON FIRE. Hambarg-tmerlcan Liner From Few York for Hamburg AH the Passen gers Were Rescued. WerRe By Cable to the Morning Star. London, November 15. The Hamburg-American steamer Patria, Cap tain Frohlich, which left New York November 4th for. Hamburg and pass ed the Lizard yesterday, is on fire near Dover. All the passengers were res cued and have arrived at Dover. The Russian steamer Ceres sighted the Patria, showing signals of distress and damage, about twelve miles from North Hinder lightship. , The liner was enveloped in smoke. Putting on full steam the Ceres soon reached her, and sending a boat, learned that Cap tain Frohlich was' in urgent need of assistance. The boats were got out, and with great difficulty all of the Patria's pas sengers, numbering 150, were trans ferred to the Ceres, which proceeded for Dover, where she arrived just be fore midnight Francis W. Prescott the United States consul at Dover, was imme diately notified and he consulted with the harbor authorities, who arranged to send out the harbor tug Lady Vita, which brought the rescued per sons ashore. Among the saved are many ladies and children, as well as six babes in arms. The hurry of the rescue was indicated by the fact that most of the passengers were enveloped in blankets only. They were rapidly distributed among the hotels or sent to the sailors' home, and everything possible is being done for their comfort. According to the interviews with some of the passengers, which elicited the fact that most of them are Ameri can citizens who have come for a vaca: tion in Europe, all were ordered on deck at 6 o'clock Wednesday morn ing, when they were informed that a disastrous fire had' broken out among the general cargo, and as the crew were unable to master it the captain said he thought it advisable for the passengers to take to the boats. There was no panic, all of the passengers being gotten into the boats and into two fishing boats said to belong to Yarmouth, which had come up in the meantime. The Ceres also offered to take off Captain Frohlich and the crew, but the latter preferred to remain by the ves sel so long as there was any chance of saving her, although there was the greatest danger in doing so, her hull being red hot at the time and there being every evidence that she would burn for a considerable period. - The passengers say they learned from the officers that Captain Frohlich hopes to put his steamer ashore at some point on the coast where there will be a possibility of saving her.

A special to the Constitution itom Americus, Ga., says: "The city authorities of Americus are in a tangle with the Christian scientists here on the issue of compulsory vaccination. A month ago the city council adopted an ordir nance reauiring compulsory vaccina tion and nearly the entire population has been punctured. To-day one of the most estimable ladies in Americus, a Christian Scientist, was brought be fore Mayor Nixon for refusing to be vaccinated, and the mayor sentenced her to thirty days in the police bar racks.

Bv Telegraph to the Mornlna star. New York, November 15. The cotton market made fair progress in an upward direction this morning. but most of the session there was a feeling of nervousness apparent in the pit generated by persistent circulation of conflicting rumors as to the feeling abroad. Shorts were made extremely uneasy by an estimate on a crop of 8,700,000 bales, following as it did, last . . . . - , i , , nignt s estimate or nine miuiou paiea by the government. An effort to cover, togetner witn active puying ior Wall street account, sent prices up four to nine points on the opening call and gave the marlket a steady tone. The trading level immediately following the opening was nine to twelve points above the close 1 of last night, but later, profit taking caused a substan tial reaction. Liverpool responded to our advance of yesterday to the satis faction of holders here, but lost a good share of the improvement before our ! market opened under heavy realizing and bear hammering. Re ceipts not only in the interior, but at the ports as well, fell short of the amount predicted early in the week. Dispatches reported an advance of l-16c in Southern spot markets. Within the last few minutes the mar ket dropped rapidly under heavy real izing and bear selling and closed weak at a net loss of one to three points. New York, November 15.
