Japanese Minister at St. Petersburg
Thinks. Conflict Would Be Disas
trous to Both Nations. j
St. Petersburg. Jan. IS. The Asso
ciated Press correspondent, on high au
thority, is able to give the following as
the present status of negotiations be
tween Russia and Japan: Russia recog
nizea Japan's predominance in Korea
and Japan recognizes Russia's special
position in Manchuria.
There are two main questions still at
Issue the Russian demand for a neu
tral zone upon the- Korean side of the
Yalu river, which Japan met with a
proposal for a similar neutral strip on
tiie Manchurlc.n side, Japan also asks
for certain guarantees covering Man
churia, which Russia thus far has de
clined to grant. It is pointed out, how
ever, that the assurances given a few
days ago by Russia regarding open
ports in Manchuria and respect for
treaty rights is a concession on this
That the two countries are not so far
apart may lx- fairly . inferred from tlie
following statement made by Mr. Ku
Hno, the Japanese Minister, to the As
sociated Press correspondent:
"War now would only be disastrous to I
both countries. Owing to the geograph
ical situation, an armed conilict would
result in a gTeat drain on the men and
treasury of both Japan and Russia,
without being decisive. Beside I believe
it would not be worth wijilc to go to
war on the questions still In dispute."
There is a strong Indication that
through the Czar's' personal ucts the
peace party Is completely In the ascend
ant. M. BeJcobrazofC. the head of the
war parly, has gone abroad; Foreign.
Minister, who from tlie beginning has
favored peace, is now completely hc
habilltated, and Viceroy Alexieff has
bten made subservient to the foreign
ollice In the Russo-Japanese, negotia
tions. His extensive powers are cur
tailed and he can make no move with
out the Czar's personal approval. In
fact, the fresh assurances conveyed
through Ambassador Caasini to the au
thorities at Washington of the recog
nition of the rights acquired by the Chi
nese treaty is largely attributed to Count
Larnsdorff's Influence. Diplomatic cir
cles regard Count Lamsdork's conduct
of the negotiations under tlie Czar's di
rection as a very hopeful sign. Another
strong influci.ee on the side of peace
has been tlie attitude of M. Witte. presi
dent of the Council of Stace. who has
been bending his energies to avoid a
conlllcl. At the recent meetings of the
Council of State M. Witte. with his old
time eloquence, pleaded the cause of
peace, pointing out the disastrous con
sequences of war to Russia and de
claring that Russia has everything- to
lose and nothing to gain. Tt is predicted
that if peace prevails M. Witte again
will be come a great power in Ihe Gov

Russia Agitated Over Possible Inter
ference in Far East.
Paris. Jan. IS. Private dispatcher
from St. Petersburg indicate that the
Japanese note has not helped lo fortify
optimistic anticipations. As long as
there was room for further negotiations;
Russian diplomacy helped Russia to
gain time. But Japan having given a
final answer to tlvo latest Russian note,
will not. It is expected, wait indefinitely
for a decision on Russia's part.
There Is wild to be n good deal of irri
tation in St. Petersburg over the failure
of Russian diplomacy. It Is recognized
that tlie conclusion of the Chinese
American treaty has materially affected
It is reported that Russia stands in
greater fear at the present moment of
the United StateB than of Great Britain.
PLACING ONUS ON JAPAN.
Peaceful Words of Czar Looked Upon
as a Hostage.
St. Petersburg, Jan. IS. The Czar's
nsmirance given at the yvlnler
palace January 14th on the occasion of
the New Year's reception that he de
sires and intended to do all In his power
to maintain peace in the far East Is
regarded by the foreign diplomats as a
hostage given lo the world for tho pres
ervation of peace, while the guarantee
that Russia will recognize the open
ports and other concessions in Man
churia will, It Is thought, place the onus
of a rupture on Japan.
Most of the newspapers here Join In
the peaceful chorus, one paper remark
ing, however, that it was strange for
Russians to first hear of the Czar's
words by way of America,

Railroad Presidents Were for
.L'f'Ri.Byxi-: spkCJ'AL, .
New Tori;. Jan. IS. Perry S. Heath.
former First Assistant Postmaster
General, was seen at the Waldoif-Astoria
hotel thly morning. He said again
that he was neither prepared nor au
thorized to speak for Senator Hanna
regarding the talk of his candidacy for
the Presidency, and also had some
thing lo say about "words, words,
words." Air. Heath is qouted as hav
ing said bust night in regard to bis
former connection with the Postofllce
"1 went In the Postofllce department
lo carry out-the obligations of Mr. Me
Kinley's administration. Tt seems that
I am lo be crucllled for it." In addition
lo that Mr. Jleath sad today: "Yes. 1
said thaL It is true, but any talk
about that Is words, words, words, and
I have heard them adnausam. Every
body knows what the place of First
Assistant Postmaster-General Is in the
beginning of an administration. It is
the spoilsman place, lyhave refused to
1m; interviewed about it again and
again, and I refuse now. I have tuid
all that there is to say."
NOT TO BOOM HANNA.
Tn regard to his purpose in coming to
this city Mr. Heath said: "I am not
here to boom Senator Hanna. I am
here on no mission. 1 merely came to
attend to my own personal business. 1
have nothing to say for or agnins't Sen
ator Hanna. lie can say for himself
all that needs to be said, and ho will
doubtless do so. I have not seen Sena
tor Hanna for a month.
"I have been qouted as saying that
fifteen railroad presidents living in this
hotel favored Senator Hanna, I .did
not i-ay any such a thing. T was asked
what the people thought of him for
President. I replied, 'There are fifteen
railroad presidents living- here; ask
them.' I was asked If I had seen them:
I said, 'Yes, but had not talked for
Hanna or about politic?. There may
not be so many of them here. Fifteen
way a figure of speech. I do not want
to talk, because there Is a tendency to
attach too muoh Importance to what I
say. Last night some one asked me if
Senator Hnnna would accept the nomi
nation. I said that if bis friends of
fered it to him he could not afford to
lake a baseball bat and crack them
over the head with it. That Is true, but
for more than that Senator Hanna
must be his own spokesman."
THE POLITICAL SITUATION.
Speaking of the political situation and
Senator Hanna'y position in a general
way, Mr. Heath said; "Senator Hanna
Is In a peculiar position. He Is the man
who has elected his candidates in 1SJC
and 1900, and who has had campaigns
of his own for the United States Sen
ate, and has had various other
campaigns 1n between. The frlonds
who came to his atdistance then did
not do so because his candidates were
good candidates, but because of his
own individuality. Now the same
friends are coming to him and de
manding that he be a candidate for
President take the Republican nomi
nation for President. Certainly Sena
tor Hanna must treat thorn with cour
tesy and consideration.
"No one can mnko himself the Preti
Identlul candidate, nor can he refuse
to be a candidate."
Mr. Heath today repeated his former
statement that he had no intention of
resigning u secretary of the Republi
can National committee
Senate Session Takes Up
HALE STARTS THE BALL
No Effort to Narrow Scop of
Contention of Iffr. Teller of Colorado
Regarding Panama Canal Does
Not Agree With Spooner.
"Washington. Jan. IS. The postoffice
inquiry rcsolutiou'and tho Panama ca
nal question divided the attention of
tlie Senate today.
The dryt half of the session was
given up to the inquiry, Messrs. Hale
and Gorman being the speakers. Mr,
Hale made a plea for the reference of
all postal investigation resolutions to
the Committee on Postofllccs and Mr.
Gorman repeated his assurance that he
would be satisfied with that disposal
of the question. The question went
over until tomorrow, with the under
standing that after a few more
speeches the resolution would be al
lowed to go to the committee.
The discussion of the Panama canal
question was confined to the continua
tion of Air. Teller's argument that the
course of the United Slates in the re
cent revolt of Panama war contrary to j
international law and sound morals.
When the resolutions looking to an j
Investigation by Congress of the Post
ofllce department -were laid before the
Senate Mr. Hale of Mnln.c addressed
the body In defense of the administra
tion and in criticism or the Democratic
sldc,concornlng the insufficiency of the
inquiry. He declared I here never had.
been so f runlet's an investigation as
that which had expop.ed the frauds in
the" Postoffice department. Air. Hale
said it had been settled by general con
sent that all of the resolutions coming
from different Senators should be sent
to the Comittee on Postoflicps and
Postroads for consideration. He be
lieved that to be the most suitable way
of proceeding Inasmuch as the chair
man of that committee' bad given as
surance that the resolutions would be
"So far as 1 am able to observe there
never has been any disposition to pre
vent or stifle further investigations,'
said Air. Hale. "I say the Investiga
' tlon has been thorough and severe an
example such as has not been shown in
the history of this Government."
He said a number of Democratic
Senators bad been disturbed "by the
apparition of Perry Heath In the s.can
dalH," "and Mr. Gorman," said Air.
Hale, "naturally looks upon himself in
the role of prosecutor of tlie Republi
can party for the delinquencies of the
Air. Gorman said he was surprised
that such a conclusion had been
reached in regard to the position in
asking for an investigation: that it hud
been far from his purpose to become a
public prosecutor. What he had ut
tered on the subject, be said, was to
bring out the facts that the Investiga
tion was Incomplete and ought lo go
further and that It could do no harm
to have the work reviewed by persons
not connected with the administration.
What I have complained of Is that
the Senator stated and restated again
and again that the investigation has
been stilled," said Air. Hale.
Air. Gorn-ar. nnswvrod that he had
made the statement that for two and a
half months the Senator from Pennsyl
vania and the Senator from Tennessee
and himself had been trying to secure
the passage of a resolution asking for
further investigation. "And." said he.
"the Senator Irom Massachusetts (Air.
Lodge) informed us bluntly and frankly
that the Republican party was In the
majority and would not permit us to ob
tain Information excent by permission
of that party. I was shocked by" that
expression. Tt was ii9w to me, and nat
urally we have rescntsd It."
Mr. Hale interposed that that was a
personal controversy between Ihe two
Senators, and added that all were now
agreed "that these resolutions should
all go to the Postofllce commission to
determine to what extent Congress
should follow up. search out, llnd, ex
pose and punish crimes in the Postofllce
Air. Hale prophesied that as the great
campaign between the parties was al
most here the Investigation by Congress
if one is ordered would dwindle into a
contest between the two parties to see
which could gain the advantage of the
other. He said that already the Demo
crats were trying to make the Republi
can party resionslble for till the short
comings In the Postofllce department.
Mr. Gorman said that he could agree
with Mr. Hale in most things, but that
concerning Congressional Investigations
he believed that much could be accom
plished if only detecting the Haws in the
lawn was successful. At the conclusion
of Air. Gorman's romarks the resolution
w'ent over until tomorrow.

J. W. Telford, Who Indorsed Bogus 1
Check and Passed It Along, I
Hay Lose the Amount. I
There is likely to be some excitement H
in this city beforelt is shown who , H
signed a forged check for ?1500 which
was passed on AlcCornlck & Co.'s bank, 1 H
the latter part of last September. j H
Even the mere fact, that anyone had H
succeeded in getting- $1500 on a bogus H
signature from McComick's bank H
would be remarkable enough to excite (H
comment, but the present case has
other features which add to the mys- fl
tery and the consequent Interest. Ll
HOW IT CAAIE TO LIGHT. jH
The matter was brought to light at
I o'clock last evening when S. W. Dai -ling,
a Nevada mining- man. swore out
a complaint charging A. B. White with jH
forgery. A warrant was delivered to
the Sheriff together with the Informa
tion that White would be found on the
Rio Grande train from Park City. Dep- 'H
utles Smith and Cowan hastened at tH
once to Sugarhouse Ward, where they
boarded the incoming train.
The only man they could find who, ?iB
corresponded to the description of -'j
White was Glenson E. Rice, so they g
brought him to the county Jail and put,
him safely behind the bars. i B
The $1500 check which occasioned the Jk
trouble was cashed at McCornhk's jH
September 25, li)03, by Dillon & -Morgan
of the Vienna Cafe, They bad cashed -it
for J. W. Telford of tlie Golden Gate ttM
saloon, and Mr. Telford "oad received it
from Rice, who claimed that It had IjH
been passed on him by White.
White Is a mysterious Individual, ap
parently unknown to everybody but. Il
Rice. The check was 'payable to his or-1 VM
der and was indorsed with bis slgna- IJ
ture before It passed Into the bands of fH
Air. Telford. The forgery was not dis-j
covered for a week after the passing of, IH
the check; in fact not until Air. Darling; jfll
received a monthly statement from th; i
bank showing the 31600 charged to his I
account. He promptly -wrote to the. I
bank stating that he had drawn no I
such check. -The bank came back to I i
Dillon & Alorgan and they referred the 1 1
matter to Air. Telford, who set about 1 V
looking- for Rice, the latter having left i
the city. H JI
Air. Telford. when seen last night HH
declined to discuss the matter tery H
fully. He admitted that Rice bad bcen
In bis employ, running a roulett jH
wheel, but said he knew nothing- ahout(
the man's history save that he had
been In the Jewelry business and had'
acted as agent for the Utah Paper com-,
pany. His story of the check is that
Rice presented It to him and told him
that White was good for the amount.
Rice claims that White Is a bona-flde
individual. He says that AVhltc was in
a game at the Golden Gate and drew iH
three checks, the llrst for $500, the sec
ond for $1000 and the third for ?1500. He
tore up the smaller checks, Rice claims,
and asked Rice to get the money on the
third, which Rice claims he did. In IH
good faith. from Telford. When IH
pressed for further information con-corning-
the alleged White, Rice said
that White was his friend and that he
would go to the penitentiary rather jl
than get hi? friends into trouble. il
S. W. Darling, whoso name Avas
forged to tlie check, was seen at the
White House last night. He said:
"I do not know this man Rice, nor
White. I cannot imagine who could
have had an opportunity to copy my
signature. It was a very good forgery,
although the writing was mora "'IH
cramped than mine. If Rice Is the man
who committed the forgery I don t ll
know- how his attention was directed
