Tokio, Dec. 9. Eight Russian
warships have arrived at Chemulpo
to oppose the opening the port of
Yongampho to commerce.
The Russians threaten to land
3,000 men and march upon Seoul
should Korea disregard the warn
ing. The opening of the port of Yon
gampho furnishes one of the crucial
points in the negotiations now go
ing on between Russia and Japan.
A tentative agreement is said to
have been reached by which Japan
recognizes Russia's dominant in
fluence in Manchuria and agrees to

Washington, Dec. 7. Secretary
of War Root in a letter which has

is in line with the policy of
solution of the problem. In return
Japan demands the recognition of
her influence in Korea and the
opening of Yongampho to foreign
trade. Russia opposes this on the
ground of the port's proximity to
the mouth of the Yalu river and '
it will threaten her interests and
complicate her difficulties in Man-
ln,schuria. The Korean Government

Havana, Dec. 10. The Cabinet
has ordered the establishment of
a Custom House on the Isle ofj
Pines, thus conceding all the desires j
of the American residents except I
the American school. It is thought
this action will help reciprocity.
When Cuba ratified her treaty ,
with the United States she refused j
to recognize the Piatt amendment.
She thus retained sovereignty over
the Isle of Pines. Americans own 1
and occupy over two thirds of the j
land there and have hitherto pro
tested against Cuba collecting taxes ,
and customs receipts from tiiem !
and spending the money so collected
in Cuba. Although the Americans
constitute almost all of the popula- j
tion the schools are still conducted ,
