HONOLULU, Aug. 29. The
peace envoys met in rortsmoutn
on August 9th,, devoting their
first day to a settlement of tho
method of procedure. On tho tenth
the Japanese representatives hand
ed to tho Russians a statement of
tho terms proposed by tho Tokio
government. These included tho
evacuation of Manchuria, cession
op Saghalien and Port Arthur,
Japanese to be dominant in Korea,
payment of an indemnity by Rus
sia, retention by Japan of Russian
war Vessels interned in various
neutral ports, fishing rights for
Japanese subjects on the Siberian
coasts and limitation of Russia's
future naval strength in waters of
tho Far East.
Tho torms were regarded as so
severe that uio outiooic lor peaco
was declared to be very bad, after
tho first few days of discussion.
Russia especially objected to the
payment of an indemnity or the
cession of Saghalien, while conced
ing Japan's cqntentions as to Man
churia, Korea and tho Liaotung
penisula. Tho consideration of tho
points of disagreement was post
poned, and tho envoys proceeded to
take up tho propositions on which
they woro nearer agreement, leav
ing Saghalien and the indemnity
for later discussion.
Tho agreement on tho various
articles was quite rapid as the con
ference proceeded from day to day,
but tho commissioners postponed
tho indemnity proposition, and
thoro wero gloomy predictions that
if Japan insisted upon it war would
be resumed. These two propositions
tions and tho taking of interned
by Japan were tho crucial ques
tions of the conference, and Russia
gained much ground in these
matters, as the discussion proceed
ed. On August 21 President Roose
velt proposed that the questions of
indemnity and Saghalien bo sub
mitted to arbitration, as it appear
ed that tho peace envoys could not
come to terms, St. Petersburg ad
vices were to tho effect that thero

pan withdrew her claim of an in
demnity and cession of Saghalien.
Russia was more ready to let Ja
pan have the interned war vessels
than to auree to limit her naval
power in Eastern waters. M. Do
Witte, according to St. Petersburg
dispatches, was at this time dchnite
lv instructed not to concedo either
an indemnity nor Saghalien. As
a new scheme it was suggested that
Russia purchase Saghalien, thus
nav an indemnity in a disguised
wav. Tho negotiations took a moro
favorable- turn and on August 23
protocols were signed.

Tho indemnity was finally waiv
ed by Japan, on August 28 after

26 issued an ultimatum. Ho de
clared that thero would be no agree
ment by Russia to pay an indemni
ty and that Russia would not
agree, as far as Saghalien was con
corned, to anything more than f

pan had proposals to make in line

INDEMNITY CLAUSE A BLUFF
HONOLULU, Aug. 30.--Japan
liqs gained what sho wanted most
in tho peaco terms, in tho opinion
of Hon. Caleb W. West, ex-Governor
of Utah, who left for tho
mainland on the Alameda today.
According to Mr. West, the enor
jnous indemnity asked by Japan
and refused by Russia has drawn
tho attention of most people away
from tho great victory Japan has
gained by establishing herself be

Mr. West, or "Governor" as he
is alreadv known to many Hono-
luluans, is a special treasury a
gont and has beon in Honolulu
in company with Judge Burton
Parker making an examination
of tho local customs service.
"Janan- reallv has gained her
ends from tho peace conference,"
said Mr. West. "Stop to think
for a moment, that she controls
Korea, and Manchuria largely
and you will see that sho has got-
ton what sho really lought lor.
The indemnity asked was large
enough to take away the world's
attention, and Russia's too- from
the things Russian was yielding.
Japan could not expect to get such
an indemnity, so made it big
enough to dwarf the other things."
Mr. West did not use the word
"bluff," but ho went all around it.
"With the . Harbin railway, the
Laiolung peninsula concessions,
and the Korean protectorate, Ja
pan is established now. Russia's
naval power in the east is checked
'Which will guarantee Japan s
future establishment. Tho intern
ed 'Russian warships cut but a
small figure," continued Mr. West.
And Japan knows what she s
about in yielding readily. There's
policy in that as in everything
else. It looks generous."

gular meeting yesterday afternoon,
Superintendent Davis and Com
missioners Jordon, Wilcox and

Threo bids have been received
for supplying poi to the Lahaina-

Mr. Hayseldcn has been supplying
it in tho past, but tho contract
drawn up by tho latter was not
satisfactory to tho Board when it
was read several meetings ago
because, while it stipulated that
the Board would not securo its poi

source, it did not provide a penal

out his part of tho contract. In

Mr. Crook of tho Makawao
school, Paia, was a visitor at the
meeting of tho Board yesterday,
and regaled tho commissioners
with some stories of tho difficulties
under which he had labored in
his school. Ho said thatv ho
started teaching at Makawao in
1880 and while the building and
desks were new at that timo, no
improvements had since beon
made and the desks had been
patched over and over again
while tho schoolhouse looked like
a barn. For some time past when
it had been necessary to use paper
for exercises, he had bought it him
self. In connection with this ho
stated that while tho Japaneso pu
pils were willing to buy blank
books and pads, the Portugese
refused to do so. The general con
dition of things was duo to no
fault of tho Board of Education
but owing to tho fact that the
legislature did not appropriate
enough money to carry on schoo
affairs in a satisfactory manner,
