KING EDWARD S SPEECH.
< ontinuod from Ant p*C«-
band, the British government feels it will tain
little by pressing the point, especially as It re
gards the power of the Russian navy to harm
merchantmen in tha Far East as having prac
tically disappeared. Therefore, the government
will accept an Indemnity, which it will regard
as an admission of the correctness of the posi
tion assumed by the Foreign Secretary, Lord
Lanadowne, when the original demand for repa
ration was made.
The neutrality of China presents a more knotty
problem to the London authorities, for the rea
son that they have to consider the effect upon
their ally. The dtepoadtk a of the government is
to po Blow. In other words, while Insisting that
China Khali continue neutral, the government
will clve Japan every opportunity to show, if
possible, a justification for the action of the tor
pedo bout destroyer In capturing the Ryeshi
telnl. Exchanges on the subject have taken
place between Great Britain and Japan, the lat
ter Insisting that the Russians were the aggres
sors. The reports of British officers seenc. how
ever, to establish the fact that the Japanese
took the initiative.
THE JAPANESE CONTENTION.
At the Japanese Legation it was said that the
Tokio government had not reached a decision in
respect to the return of the Ryesbltatal to Che-
Foo, and it was not known that such action
was under consideration. It was added:
The Russians opened fire on our men, showing
that the Ryeshitelni. If she had not been dis
armed, might have attempted to leave Che-
Foo without regard for the promise made by her
commander, and menace neutral shipping or
carry dispatches of great Importance. As the
Russians took the offensive, our men had no
Other recourse than to capture the Ryeshltelul.
Official* and diplomats here recognise the im
portance of the Washington statement that the
United States can do no more than use her
mortl influence to preserve the neutrality of
China, but it is potato^ out that this has proved
most effective in the past, especially in the ne
gotiations following th« Boxer revolt, and that
probably it would have the same results to-day,
particularly as Great Britain Intends to support
the same principle. No representations have
i.een ma ie on the subject through the American
Embassy hers, but an active exchange of •views
Is known to be goin? on at Peking.
At the Chinese Legation hera it was said that
the Foreign Board had not communicated to it
the farts of the Ryeshitelni incident, but was

tion express the hope that tha Unite! States

Russia's Only Hope of Interference
in the Ryeshitelni Case.
Kt. Petersburg, Aug. lo. — Russia's protest
against tho violation of Chinese neutrality by
Japan In the Ryeshitelni seizure at Che Fttl is
not expected by the Foreign Office to evoke an
Immediate response from the powers. Inter
national action, therefore, is not regarded as
likely at present, unless the authorities at Wash
ington change their minds and decide to press
the question before the powers.
To-day's editorials mostly deal with the Ryes

Japanese commander, administered the only
punishment suitable for such an outrageous act.

confusion. Before the day was ended, however,
the chiefs of the organization began to be at borne.
The original plans as to the location of Chairmau
Tutreart and Secretary Woodson have been rad
ically chanced. It was intended that the national
chairman should have one of the three large offices
that afford a view of the Waldorf across Thirty
fourth-st., and Secretary Woodson was to have the
office adjoining that of Chairman Taggart with the
same pleasing outlook. But it was evidently de

tucky about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, and alter
an hour at headquarters was unable to say just
