JAPAN'S PEACE TERMS
WASHINGTON, July 27.
Although guarding with great caro
the ofiicial statement of her terms,
Japan has not kept from several
friendly governments the character
of these torms. Ofiicial Washing
ton has been enabled to form
within certain limits a general
idea of their character. It is
known that Japan will demand
an indemnity that will approxi
mately cover the cost of tho war to
date. This was communicated to
Russia early in tho preliminary
negotiations. The amount is still
a secret, but it is based upon the
most careful estimates of the costs
of the war and will be accompanied
by a more detailed statement show
ing tho method by which the
actual figures were computed. It
will not fall far short of $1,000,000,-
000, according to advices reaching
here from well informed sources.
Beside the indemnity, it is
believed Japan's other essentials
to tho continuance of tho negotia
tions are as follows: The cession
to Japan of Saghalien and the
transfer of Russia's lease of the
Liaotung peninsula and of tho
railway as far as Harbin, the
recognition of Japanese predomi
nating influence in Corea,, and the
return of Manchuria to China.
If the Russian plenipotentiaries
are prepared to accept theso essen
tials, tho officials here are confi
dent that the basis will be laid for
negotiations sure to lead to the
singing of the treaty at Washing
ton, bringing peace in the Far
As for the subjects remaining to
be discussed, one on which Russia
will be disposed to -negotiate with
the greatest caution is tho pro
gramme lor tiie restoration oi
Manchuria to Chinese control. Be
cause of the confusion and the.
general disorder likoly to ensue in
the province on the withdrawal of
the foreign armies', Japan believes
that a certain time will be required
in which to restore public order
and the establishment of a regular
system of Chinese administration.
During this period Japan will
insist that she remain in control of
the administration of the province,
at the same time giving a definite
pledgo finally to evacuat9 as soon
as China shall be in a position to
take up the reins of tho govern
ment thero and maintain order
Tho policy to bo suggeste'd by
Japan in this matter will not bo
unlike the Washington Govern
irient in reference to Cuba, tho
troops boing withdrawn as soon, as
a stablo government is in control
A second subject for the ploni
pototiaries to settle will be the
surrender of all tho Russian ships
now intorned in neutral ports.
Some of them are inclined to be
lieve that this demand will form
one of the "essentials," while
An Agreement Rockefeller

others claim ground for believing
that Russia may induce Japan to

Europe believes Japan will de
mand the neutralization of Valdi
vostok. The Washington Govern
ment docs not share in this belief.
Indeed, in official circles hero the
statement is mado without hesita
tion that such a demand would
not bo "moderate" or "reasonable,"
and it is known that Russia will
not permit the subject of Valdi-
vostok to come before tho confer
ence. Rather than submit to
Japan's dictation on this point,
Russia has let it be known that
she would certainly continue the
WANTS MORTGAGE ON MAN
CHURIA. PORTLAND, (Or.), July 20.
Howard Swan, professor of English
in the Imperial College at Peking,
who is en route to Berkeley to
lecture at tho summer school there,
declares that Japan is at heart
more anxious for peace than Rus
.He says that Japan as a matter
of pride will insist that Russia
cede tho island of Saghalien and
that the further terms offered by
Japan will be as follows:
Manchuria to be erected as an
independent state under tho gua
rantee of the United States,,Great
Britain, China, and Japan; that aB
China, Russia and, Japan have
interests in Manchuria, tho Man
nhurians be compelled to issue
bondB for as many millions as
the guaranteeing powers agree
upon; that China do given one-
third of theso bonds for her relin
quishment of sovereignty, which
Japan will buy from the Chinese
Government: that tho third which
would go' to Russia be turned over
to Japan as the price of peace tho
Czar must nav: and that tho
remaining third also go to Japan.
This would mortgage Manchu
ria to Japan and at the same
time would create an independent
buffer Btate between Russia's
possessions and Japan.
KAISER AND CZAR TALKED

Tho Czar, according to this cor
respondent, will probably conBent,
provided Russia is pormitted to rec
tify slightly ljer frontier on the
Baltic. It is pointed out that this
would be a fair exchange, as Ger-
many's naval forco would be great

of the magnificant Norwegian har
bors. It is not believed that Great Bri
tain and France would bo able to
oppose such a solution of the Scan
dinavian question provided the
Norwegians accepted it.

II AS A CORN ER ON LINSEED OIL
BUFFALO, July 23. John D.
Rockefeller, through the American
Linseed Oil Company, has cornered
the flaxseed market and has com
pelled three big independent mills
here to close. The price of linseed
oil will bo advanced, 40 cents a
gallon. This advance will sorious-
ly affect many industries, particu
larly those of oil cloth, linoleum,
paints, oils, etc., and will un
doubtedly cause a large number of
workmen to be thrown out of em
It is estimated that in getting
control of tho linseed oil industry
Rockefoller will make a profit of
about $20,000,000 on an investment
of between $8,000,000 and $10,000,-
000. It is estimated that factories
representing an invested capital of
$500,000,000 and their workmen
are placed within the power of the
Standard by control of the linseed
oil industry by Rockefeller.
