STOESSEL SEEKS TRUCE.
Thought at St. Petersburg It Must
Be to Bury Dead.
Tokio. Nov. 10.— is reported that General
ttoessel. commanding at Port Arthur, has ai=ked
the Japanese for an armistice, the purpose of
which Is not stated. A confirmation of the re
port if unobtainable. It is hopeaNhere that Gen
■rsJ Stoessel will capitulate befoVe the city
proper hi taken. The Japanese soldiers aifr
ir.zry and inflamed on account of the alleged
»1 use of their wounded by the Russians. They
believe they will be murdered If captured. Tin
ker these conditions it will possibly be dlfflcu^
to avoid a massacre when the troops meet In
the final combat.
Pt. Petersburg, Nov. 10. — The War Office has
no late advice* from Port Arthur, and nothing:
Is known here of the report that General Stoe»
f»> has asked for an armistice, but. if so. it Is
considered that it must have been to bury tha
and not In view of a capitulation. Th#
suggestion made by way of Tokio that the Rus
glans are maltreating the wounded Is deeply
resetted in military circles here, where it la
considered that the Idea may be put out as an
e>r .:«» for the likelihood of a repetition of a
massacre uuch as followed the taking of Porft
Arthur during the Chinese-Japanese War.'

A Budget of $20 .000,000 for Army in South
Berlin, Nov. 10.— A supplementary budget of
$20,000,000 for the expenses of tho army In Ger
man Southwest Africa as a result of the In
surrections will be presented to the Reichstag
in December. Even this sum embarrasses the
Imperial Finance Ministry, which is striving to
reduce the annual deficits and at the same time
provide additional funds for various public
works and for the army and navy. The prog
ress in suppressing the native risings appears
to be going on measurably well. Ahout four

PARDONS FOR LESE MAJESTY.
Emperor William to Bestow Them When
ever Circumstances Will Warrant.
Berlin, Nov. 10. — It Is announced that Em
peror William has decided to hereafter use the
pardoning power liberally in cases of leee maj
esty (insult to his majesty). This is a radical
departure from the previous practice. It had
heretofore been practically unknown for the
Emperor to pardon a person convicted of this
offer.ee. It ie now said that his majesty Intends
to pardon almost without exception when the
offender is shown to belong to the uneducated
classes or to be incapable of weighing the oon
seQUt-nces of a hasty word. Also, offences com
mit led during drunkenness or while in an ex
cited condition, rendering deliberation impossi
ble, will constitute the basis for pardon. Tha
Emperor J.as directed the Ministry of Justico
to aeal liberally with all persons convicted of
an insult to his majesty who petition for par
don and show penitence. It is expected that the
new practice will greatly reduce the number
who will serve out sentences for this offence,
since the Impression is general that many
6llght offenders have been convicted every
year through overoffloious State Attorneys and
The new naval attache of the United States
Embassy, Lieutenant Commander "William L.

STRAUS FORESEES PEACE
Continued from flrws !>««♦■
even in the event of France not participating.
It_is known, however, that Ambassador Qb»
bon. who continues his work assiduously to
brinsr about some arrangement, hopes for Joint
action by the three powers.
In an interview regarding the foregoing, Baron
Hayashi, the Japanese Minister, said:
"I should not be surprised to see the three
powers named, or two of them, take the action
suggested. Exactly upon what basis of a settle
ment paaoe could be secured it is at present im
possible to see. but there is not the slightest
doubt that combined representations, especially
if led by President Roosevelt, would have a far
reaching result between two countries, one of
which was thoroughly defeated. It is compara
tively easy to make peace in this case, as
neither side is thoroughly defeated yet. The
prospects for the success of friendly intervention
have vastly Increased since the beginning of the
war. The two nations now respect each other
to a degree never dreamed of before they met
in battle. That mutual respect is the most
hopeful factor for peace. Japan does not want
to go on fight Ing forever. Yet, even with all the
victories won during the war, her statesmen
would render themselves liable to be most seri
ously misunderstood, especially in Russia, if
they openly suggested in the name of humanity
some method whereby the war could be stopped.
It would be altogether different however, at
fhis stage of the war. should a friendly offer,
prompted by that sense of humanity which
Japan cannot voice for fear of being misunder
stood, emanate from the United States and
Great Britain, but nothing can be done until
the fall of Port Arthur.-
Baron Hayaahi Intimated that he thought
that the fall of the fortress would not long be
delayed, and added:
"In the mean time I have no doubt that the
powers who are now bo willing to express their
desire for peace will confidentially exchange
views in the hope of arriving at some sugges
tion practical to both belligerents.'"

credit to himself and the administration. Coming
from the Presdenfs own State, they hold that his

At the request of Senator Platt and Postmaster

free of charge, last year's record showing 22.708
free days out of a total of 28,514.
To obtain the funds for the new hospital the
society, which had only about $KiO,ooo. made an
appeal and, the French government heading the
list of subscriptions with 300 ,000 franc*, $100,000 was
quickly raised. Since that subscription a legacy

The irremovable rectors and the diocesan con
eulters have already presented as their choice for
coadjutor the Very Rev. Thomas F. Hlckey, vicar
general of the Rochester Diocese and rector of St.

be the Rev. Dr. E. J. Hanna, professor of dogmatic
theology in th*- Seminary of St. Bernard, which is
the training school for priests for the Rochester
Diocese. The latter Is well known to Rome, where
he was a student. It Is understood that a third
name has been under consideration.
It was aaßorted last night that the choice of
Bishop McQuaid does not meet the approval of the
other bishops. All who attended the conference
