Baltimore, Feb. 16 At a meet
ing today of n joint committee of
the Legislature called to confer
with the Mayor, Hoard of Public
Works and leading citizens it was
unanimously agreed to report a
bill today asking the United States
Government to scud soldiers to Bal
timore to police the fire district.
The committee will also report in
favor of an immeadiate appropria
tion by the Legislature. Mayor
McLane said that he will appoint
an emergency committee of repre
sentative citizens to act as an ad
visory board to the municipal au
thorities This was another day of cease

To the Associated Press Mr. Pres
"The spirit shown by those who
suffered by the fire is truly remarkable.-
Vithout waiting to have
their insurance adjusted, the are
ready and anxious to go ahead. I
am compelled, however, to with
hold all building permits within
the fire limits for several days. The
burned territory ts too dangerous

The city officials propose in en
gaging men to clear lip the fire dis
trict to give preference to men who
were thrown out of work as a re
sult of the fire. There are many
thousands of these.
The night was marked by two
small new fires, the fall of a num
ber of walls, and conditions of ex
treme discomfort for the soldiers
and pblicemeu on guard, the tem
perature dropping almost ten de
grees and a keen wind blowing
throughout the night.'
Three companies of troops were
kept on continuous patrol duty in
the ruins throughout the night,
and the outer lines were maintained
as strictly as ever by the thiee regi
ments and, the naval brigade. So
quiet were the conditions that mili
tary headquarters in the Marshal's
office were practically closed at
midnight. Buildings of all descrip

HAY'S AilLi: DIPLOMACY.
United Stales Lends In Effort
Limit War Operations.
Berlin, Feb. 10 Secretary Hay's
note to the Powers concerning the
neutrality and integrity of China
was delivered to the German Gov
ernment yesterday by Foreign Min
ister von Richthof. The Associated
Press understands the latter has
already conveyed an intimation to
Secretary Hay that his proposals
are likely to be acceptable to Ger
many, because they tend to localize
the war dud avoid fresh subjects of
international dispute. The step
taken by the United States is re
garded by the Foreign Office here
as being an able move.
Paris, Feb. 10 The overtures of
the United States Government for
Powers for preserving the neutrality
and integrity of China during and
after hostilities, is attracting wide
United States Ambassador Porter
conferred with Foreign Minister
Delcasse yesterday and again today.
The results have not been made
public, but the general situation is
as follows: It does not appear
possible that an accord of powers
can be arrived at at the present
time owing to the differences of
views. It is practically certain that
France will not take any action
which could possibly be construed
as embarrasing to Russia or us
seeking to coerce her concerning
the integrity of China. The French
authorities appear quite willing and
even anxious to have China declare
her neutrality. They desire to have
the least possible interruption in in
ternational shipping in the far
Eastern ports and also will seek in
dividually and collectively to confine
the area of hostilities so as to reduce
the chances of a general spread of
conflagration. But relative to the
integrity of China it is not likely
that any step will be taken. If the
term "China" is intended to in
clude Manchuria, it is held that this
is consistent with the past French
attitude concerning the integrity of
China, which was construed to be
entirely distinct from the provinces
of the Chinese Empire, including
Manchuria, Thibet and Mongolia.
However, the foregoing is only the
general tendency, the negotiations
being still open with the prospect of
their rather lengthy continuance.

To Cross Korea.
Seoul, Korea, Feb. 17. Japan,
which is now landing thousands of
troops on Korean soil in preparation
for the struggle with the army of
the Russians in the northern part
of the peninsula, has been granted
by the Korean government the right
to traverse the country. This re
moves every obstacle in the way of
the Japanese army and assures their
arrival near the scene of expected
hostilities in a short space of time.
The landing of the troops from Ja
pan is being effected at Chemulpo.
