Mr. Vanderlip's Visit.
Mr. "Wi,tte, continuing his" conversa

the visit of Mr. Vanderlip last night, to
prevent false statements and misrep
resentation regarding it.
"Mr. Vanderlip," he said, "came to

BEFORE THE CONFERENCE
Some of the Guesses of the Eager Cor
Portsmouth, N. H., Aug. 2&.The ses
sion of the peace conference this morn
ing began shortly after 10 o'clock.
Decisive Hour Has Come'.
There was a recognition on both sides
that the decisive hour in the fate of
the peace conference had come.
Mr. Witte seemed not in a pleasant
frame of mind. He had received new
instructions during the night reiterat
ing the old. They left him no leeway.
Unless the new Japanese proposal met
the emperor's "ultimatum" as given
to President Roosevelt thru Ambas
sador Meyer (no indemnity, but the
cession of half of Saghalien without
money payment beyond that for the
maintenance of the Russian prisoners
and that involved in the cession of the
Chinese Eastern railway), he consid
ered that he had full authoiitv to re
J'ect it flatly without reference to St.
Witte Bound Hand and Foot.
Mr, Witte considered that the em
peror had figuratively burned his
bridges behind him in the replies he
had given to the American president.
The emperor having thus committed
himsolf, Mr. Witte considered himself
tied hand and foot.
Unless the Japanese proposal this
morning, therefore, came strictly within
his instructions, he would, according
to his views, not only be ."justified in
refusing, but be compelled to refuse it.
To a proud man like Witte the position
was insufferable. He was playing a
dog's comedy'' he ,said tfc friend.'
The Psychological Moment.
I cannot believe that the Japanese
will absolutely waive indemnity and
not substitute something in lieu there
of which will involve a money pay
ment by Russia/- And if they offer a
proposition -vyhicn again arrays indem
nity in a new dress, Mr. Witte^ I am
satisfied, will not even consider it. He
goes to the conference to listen to what
they have to say. He will take his
place at the conference table and sit
silent until they finish. That will be
the psychological moment. Then he
-will reply. Perhaps he did. not him
self know -when he left the hotel this
morning what reply he would give."
Baron Komura Has a Card in-Reserve.
Just before the conference met, the
Associated Press received an intima
tion that Baron Komura held a strong
card in reserve which would make it
almost impossible for Mr. Wittej no
matter how he viewed his instructions,
to reiect the second proposal without
submitting it to his emperor. Should
the first proposal be tefused, the infor
mation of the Associated Press is that
Baron Komura would then play his
last trumpa wholesale proposal to
arbitrate all unadiusted propositions
before the conference.
It is hardly conceivable that Mr.
Witte would dare to refuse to place
before the author of The Hague trib
unal such a proposition. To do so would
be for him to court both for himself
and his government a universal out
burst of denunciation.
Speculation About Witte.
Witte is a man of passion, a man who
acts sometimes upon' sudden impulses.
He is quite'capable, at the critical mo
ment, of disregarding the letter of his
instructions and laying results at the
feet of his majesty and thus, in the face
of the world, forcing the emperor to
take the responsibility.
But there are motives that might
impel him in the other direction. None
knows as well as he, the hostility which
exists at court against him. None
kno as well as he that the emperor's
advisers are trying to poison his majes-

A change to the right kind of food
can lift one from a sick bed. A lady
in Welden, 111., says:
Last Spring I became bed-fast with
severe stomach trouble* accompanied by
sick headache. I got worse and worse
until I became so low I could scarcely
retain any food at all, although I tried
every kind. I had become completely
discouraged, had given up all hope and
thought I was doomed to starve to
death, till one day my husband trying
to find something I could retain brought
home some Grape-Nuts.
"To my surprise the food agreed
with me, digested perfectly and without
distress began to ec&in strength at
once, my flesh Cwhich had been flabby)
grew firmer, my health improved in
every way and every day^ and in a
very few weeks I gained 20 pounds in
weight. I liked Grape-Nuts so well
that for 4 months I ate no other food,
and always felt as well satisfied after
eating as if I had sat down to a fine
I had no return of the miserable
sick stomach nor of the headaches, that
I used to have when I ate other food.

own work again, and feel that life is

No plenipotentiary at such a crisis

TOKIO OPINION OPPOSED
Leading Newspapers Object to the Last
Tokio, Aug. 29, (9 a.m.)The press
is almost unanimous in condemning the
proposal to divide Saghalien in consid

The Hoibo says:
"It would be an abominable disgrace
identical with selling the national treas

forbid the continuation of the confer

patience is not without limit."

JAPAN 'S LAST CONCESSION
Division of Saghalien and Money for
the North Half.
Portsmouth, N. H., Aug. 29.-"We
have heard from the imperial council
at Tokio. Japan has made all the
concessions that have been made thus
far in these negotiations and will make
more concessions if they are necessary
to secure peace."
Speaking under orders from Baron
Komura and Minister Takahira, Mr.
Sato, the mouthpiece of the Japanese
envoys, last night made the above offi
Last Concession Restated.
This statement of Mr. Sato's, com
bined with the publication as a feeler
uof the^iStetiis of Japan, put out thru
President Roosevelt, to waive all claim
for an indemnity as such, and to cede
to Russia half of the island of .Sagha

Frank A. Vanderlip, vice president of
the National City bank of New York,
for a conference with Mr. Witte, made
peace seem more tangible than it has
been for a week.
Japan Has Reached the Limit.
Inasmuch as the Japanese have re
ceived their last instructions from the
imperial government, the negotiations
cannot drag much longer. One nation
or the other must establish a position
and hold it. Japan, as Mr. Sato said,
has done all the conceding to this point,

agreed on all points which hitherto had
been the subject of difference. While
the president had been hopeful that
such an agreement would be reached h&
was surprised that it had come today.

"No international parliament," the
count said, "has any chance of accept

it is necessary to examine membership

Three Important Questions to Be Con
sidered by Delegates at Milwaukee.
Milwaukee, Aug. 29. Three import
ant questions overshadowed all others
to be considered by the delegates to
the fifth annual convention of the As
national fraternal congress. If effected,
opened today at Hotel Pfister.
The foremost question is the amal
gamation of the organization with the
national frternal congress. If effected,
this would bring about the formation
of the greatest fraternal organization
of all times, embodying nearly a hun
dred secret societies with a total mem
bership of 5,000,000.
The second question is one of almost
equal interest. The proposition is to
organize a central office, in which can
be kept for reference the records of
courts and other data of benefit to the
different societies. Legislative super
vision of fraternal societies is another
question to be considered.

Mr. Morgan arrived in Oyster Bay
shortly after noon on his yacht.
The Chinese government has pro
posed to the American China Develop
ment company that it sell the road
and its concessions to China, the price
generally regarded as close to the pre
cise figure being $7,000,000. So far
as can De learned, the directors of the
company have not passed finally upon
the offer of the Chinese government.
It is said to be the intention of the
directors to hold a meeting in Jersey
City, and it is likely that the ques
tion of the disposition of the road
will be determined definitely.
As a result of the conference of Mor
gan and the president, the Chinese De
veloping company held a meeting today
and ratified the sale of the Hankow
railroad back to China. It may be
said that the plan was arranged at the
meetin'g between the president and Mr.
Morgan, and is satisfactory to both of
Jesse T. Wilson of Indiana was ap
pointed by President Boosevelt to be
second assistant seoretary of the in
terior. Mr. Wilson will succeed, in
that position, Melville W. Miller, also
an Indiana man.
TAPBWOEM NINETY FEET LONG
BEOUGHT TO COOPER.
S. Pomerleau Tells of the Effect of the
MonsterLargest Thing of the Kind
Ever,Heard Of in This CityWas
Still Alive When Seen at Voegeli
Brothers' Monday Afternoon.
A tapeworm that measured over 90
feet in length was among those brought
to L. T. Cooper at Voegeli's yesterday.
The horrible creature was still alive
when brought to the drugstore and is
the largest thing of its kind ever be
fore heard of in this city.
The parasite was brought to Mr. Coo
per yesterday afternoon by Mr. ID. Po
merieau, living at 554 Eighth avenue
K, who is an employee of the Com
mutator company, 121 First street N.
After explaining that the parasite
had left his system a short time be
fore, Mr. Pomerleau gave the follow
ing account of his experience. He said:
"For some time I have had a vora
cious appetite, although there would be
days when I could eat scarcely any
thing. I felt tired all the time, and
when coming down town to work felt
as though I hardly had the energv to
get back home again although I have
had in the past a good disposition, I
had become so nervous lately that I
was cranky and crabbed and not in
the least pleasant or agreeable to any
one around me. I felt so worn out all
the time that I took no pleasure in
my work or anything else, and I hated
to make the slightest effort.
Sometimes I would have a craving
for something to eat, I did not know
exactly -what, but nothing I would eat
seemed to satisfy me, I had a sallow
skin and was losing flesh and was yery
much worried about myself. I was
moody and oppressed and had no en
My employer, Mr. Ben Boneau, had
seen Mr. Cooper in the east and knew
what the Cooper remedies would do, so
when the Cooper Company came to
Minneapolis he advised me to go down
to Voegeli's Drug Store and get some
of the medicine, as he said it had
worked wonders in Indianapolis while
he vwas there. I followed his advice
and bought some of the New Discovery
medicine. I have taken less than a
bottle of it, and about two hours ago
that tape worm passed from me. Now
I know what has been troubling me
all this time.
Some people would not tell about a
matter of this sort, but I believe in
giving credit wherever it is due. and I
want e"very on in thi3 city to Isnow
what this wonderful medicine has done
for me. I would do anything on earth
for Mr. Cooper, for I actually believe,
he has saved my life."
In speaking of this matter, Mr.
"This is about the largest speci
men of a tape worm I have ever seen.
It .is hard to realize that a thing of
that sort could live in a human being.
"While it could never have directly
caused the death of Mr. Pomerleau, it
would eventually have broken down his
entire system. "One of" the principal
Organs of th* body would have become
affected and the result would have been
I am very glad that my medicine
has been able to help him.
