of Chinese persons beionging I > the exempt

While laborers must be strlctly excluded, the
law must be enforced without harshness and
unnecessary inconvenience or annoyance must
not be caused such persons as are entltled to
enter the United States. Chinese persons whose
appearance or situation clearly indieates that
they do not belong to the class of laborers must

CHINESE FOR PANAMA.
Prediction That Embargo Against
Them Will Soon Be Ralsed.
[BT TELEGRAPH TO THE TRIBtNK.]
Fittsburp. June 25.?A letter has been received
by Beary W. Leglietner, business agent of the
IxiwianinUbs. from Charles Grim, formerly of Al
legheny. who went of Panama last December to do
work with the engineerlng corps there. Grlm is
now at Crlstobal. and according to hls letter con?
ditions there are not the frlghtful ones that have
"It is no outing here." he writes, "but the wages
are hlgh. We are accorded the best ot treatment,
and the climate is such that men in ordlnary health
can stand it. The ^reat trouble has been that the
majority of those who came to Panama came for
an outing, thlnklng that they had discovered a
snap. That is the reason why so many misleading
reports are going back to the I'nited States.
"I want to make a prediction, and that is that
within a year the Jamaican laborers now employed
here wlll be ousted. and that the transports of
Uncle Sam wlll be coming here laden with
Chinese laborers. I understand from the most re?
liable authority that a recomm- ndatlon has al?
ready been sent to Washington favorlng tiie im?
portation of Chinese labor. I hope lt will not be a
year before they arrive."

FOR MODEL MUNICIPAL TENEMENTS.
Meeting To-inorrow to Discuss Subject
Called by College Seitlement.
The agltatlon which was begun several weeks
ago by the Christian Workingmen's Institute
in favor of model municipal tenements will be
discussed to-morrow nlght at a meeting called
yesterday by the College Settlement at No.
188 Ludlow-_t. Delegates from other settle
ments will attend the meeting and Alexander
Law. of the Christian Workingmen's Institute.
v._..i la the leader in the agltatlon, was asked
yesterday on behalf of the College Settlement to
attend the meeting and explain his plans ln
detail. Mr. Law sald yesterday that he had
been doing missionary work on behalf of his
plan among the Settlement Workers and that he
would attend the meeting. He said:
The plan is perfectly practlcable and I beiieve
I car. prove it satisfactorily to all the Settlement
workers. The Christian Workingmen's Insti?
tute is commltted to this agltatlon, which lf per
sistently conducted will be successful As is
generally understood. our proposition is to have
a bill passed by the Legislature authorizing the
city to purchase the sltes of buildings which are
a menace to the public health and erect model
tenements ln their places. Some of those whom
I have seen thought it was impossible to get
the Legislature to pass such a bill, but I found
their only reason for this assumption was that
perfunetory attempts had been made before to
get the Legislature to take simllar actlon and
With perslstent agitation there Is no reason
to beiieve that a properly worded bill of tho
kind, empowering the city to do this work and
appropriate mot_<> for the purpose, will fall to
pass. It ts hi line wlth the tendency of the
times, which ls for better sar.ltation. When
the East Side streets were asohalted first and
the Street Cleanlng Department began to flueh
them from time to time it created a desire for
better and cleaner surrounding by the tenement
dwellers. The result was that better tenements
were bullt. But they are stlll far from what
they ought to be. The next logical step will
be for the clty to take a hand and build
model tenements, which will be a paylng in?
vestment and naturally would be expected to
be better than tenements built by private In?
dlviduals for proflt, who only observe the tene?
ment house laws, such as they are, and they uro
not perfect, because they have to observe them.

railway, where the Cossacks, noticing the
enemy's advantage. had withdrawn slowly.
On June 10 our cavairy, having been rein
forced, met the Japanese advance. when the
enemy hastily withdrew to the southward.
On the morning of June 2<). our cavairy re
occupied points on the Mandarin Road. Japn
nese infantry began, at nine o'elock on the
same day. a determined advance against
Gujichi. opening an artillery flre on o.ir out
posts. At noon our men north of Gujichi with?

To the west three battallons of intantry, a
squadron of cavairy and three guns advanced.
We reaolved to advance on June 20 in order to
irive the enemy back and to enable our advance
guards to reeover thelr former positions. For
thls purpose the troops selected began to move
toward Liaoen-Jao. Scouts were thrown out,
and the Jaranese retired before our advance
In the evening of June 20 our advanced troops
occupied Men-Chua-Gai and a pass to the west
of tbat piace.
On the morning of June 21 our further ad?
vance began. and the enemy. pursued by us, re?
tired gradually to positions near Resco-Pln-Gao.
A livelv fire was opened by degrees. four Jap?
anese batteries being engaged. The Japanese
showed a disposition to offer an obstinate re?
sistance, and the appearance of our troops here
caused confusion among them, compelling them
to send for reinforcements.

The "lnvalld." the army organ. supplies an
argument for peace in an estimate of the
strength of the Japanese armies. which it places
at from 560,000 to tiOO.000 men. including the
forces operating In Corea, In the flve Japanese
armies opposing General Linevitch, exclusive of
cavairy and artillery. it estimates that there are
from 430.000 to 4.-0,000 men, which gives Field
Marshal Oyama a decided numerical superiority
over the strength usually allotted to Linevitch's
army. The Japanese forces. it says, are divided
as follows: General Kuroki, 115,000 to 120,000
bayonets: General Oku, 110.000 to 11.",000 bay
onets; General Nogi. 8...000 to 00,000 bayonets;
General N'odzu. 45.000 bayonets. and General
Kawamura. 73.O00 to 80,000 bayonets.
Proposal Submitted to Russia?The
St. Petersburg, June 20.?Negotiations for the
peace conference have taken an important step
forward, a proposition for the date of the meet?
ing of the plenipotentiaries at Washlngton hav?
ing been submitted to Russia and being now
under consideration. The exact date proposed
has not been ascertained, but there is reason
to beiieve that it ts some time in the flrst week
or ten days of August. which ls about the ear
liest period ln which the Japanese representa
tives can be expected to reach Washington.
The Emperor's answer is not expected for a
day or two, as the diplomatic mills of Russia
grlnd slowly, and the Foreign Offlce, as one of
the secretaries put it, "Is not used to your
hustling American methods"; but lt ls thought
that the date will be satlsfactory.
Whether the proposal orlginated at Toklo or
Washington cannot be learned. but the fact
that the negotiations were conducted through
Ambassador Meyer mav indicate that Presi?
dent Roosevelt hfis again stepped to the fore
and suggested to the two powers a suitable date.
Ambassador Meyer is miil exchanging commu
nleations with Count Lamsdorff by letter, the
Minister being conflned to his apartments, but
the Count has expressed hope that he may be
able to resume personal exchange of views to?

The "Novoe Vremya" prints an interview with
a Japanese diplomat at Paris, who says that
while nobody, except the Emperor of Japan and
his princlpal advlsers is yet ln possession of
Japan's terms, he believes that they are mod?
erate and will be acceptable. He adds that
Japan is anxious to conclude a lasting peace,
but that her attltude is not influenced by the
sllghtest doubt of her financial ability to con?
tinue the war. a much longer and .nore difficult
period of hostilitles having been expected.

Favorable Surmise on Result of Ger?
Paris. June 2~>.?Conjecture is rife regarding
the probable purport of Germany'B reply to the
French note regarding the proposed Interna?
tional conference on Moroccan affairs. Thls re?
ply has not yet been received. The statement
that Germany would refrain from replying be?
fore further verbal explanatlon took piace be?
tween Premier Rouvier and Prlnce von Radolin,
the German Ambassador, is not regarded se?
rlously in well Informed circles. where it is
thought probable that an Interview will not take
piace before Wednesday, when the reply from
Beriin may reach Paris. The offlcials. however,
are without definite Information on this point.
It is said that the glst of the reply was given
out to-day, but there la no conflrmation of the
rumor. Aceorrting to this report, Germany re
quests a clearer statement of the French pro?
gramme for Moroccan reforms. suggesting that
each subject be discussed separately. in ac?
cordance with the terms of the Madrid conven?
tion, the two points principally referred to being
coast trading and frontiers. According to this
surmise, should France accept the offer. Ger?
many would abandon the idea of the conference.
Meanwhile public anxiety. though somewhat
aboted, is still inten.se. The press continues to
advise patience and eonfidence in the efforts of
the government to reach a pacific settlement. It
ls polnted out that the negotiations have here
tofore been conducted ln a spirit of courtesy and
that appearances show that everythlng is being
done by both sides to reach an amicable ar?

The newspapers continue to discuss the situa?
tion with some heat. The "North German
Gazette" savs that "in Premier Rouvier's note
the republic adopts no decided point of view
toward a conference, and therefore the sltuat.on
is no clearer."
An attempt is being made to shift the re
