JAPAN CALLS UPON
UNCLESAM FOR AID
Requests That Washington fiovemment Prevail Upon
Russia to Release One Hundred Japanese Now
Being Held at Port Arthur.
Washington, Feb. It. Japan will ap
peal to the United States to prevail on
the Russian Government to release the
100 Japanese subjects reported detained
at Port Arthur. Mr. Takahira, the Jap
anese Minister, will, It is expected, pre
sent the appeal to Secretary Hay to
morrow. In a cablegram received from Tokio
today, the Minister was informed that,
according to news brought to Chefoo
by a British steamer from Port Arthur.
100 Japanese refugees had been taken
from the steamer by the Russian au- i
thorltieo just before the vessel sallod', I
In spile of the protest of the Japanese.
Having agreed to look out for Japa
nese citizens in Russian territory dur
ing the war, thlp Government will In
struct Mr. McCormlck. the American
Embassador at St. Petersburg, to in
quire of the Russian Government on
the subject as to the Japanese in ques
tion. Tho beat naval opinion here is to the
effect that the detention of these Japa-
nepo at Port Arthur is a strategical
necessity, to prevent the Japanese guln
Ing Information aa to fortifications,
troops, etc. An official said:
"During the alego of Paris In the
Franco-Prussian war Representative
Hitt, who was then in charge of the
American Legation there, looked after
the large number of Germans who were
detained at Paris by the French Gov
ernment," Although Russia's answer to Secre
tary Hay's note asking her to respect
the neutrality of China and localize hos
tilities as much ns possible has not yet
been received, the State department
knows Indirectly from London and Paris
that Russia will reply favorably. It
then will remain for the powers to fix
tho scope of their note and to draft a
more definite proposition for acceptance
by the two combatants.
Satisfaction is expressed by Admin
istration circles that Great Britain as
well as Russia has decided to waive ob
jections to the note.
It Is expected that all the formal an
swers to the Secretary's note will reach
here early this week.
These women realize that both armies on
gaged in tho conlllct will mako larpo de

"Washington, Feb. 14. This had been
regarded throughout as the' crucial Hay
in Senator Hanna's heroic battle for
life. It began with an assurance of
quite an optimistic character.
The first news of the day from the
sickroom was announced shortly after
7 a. m. The Senator, the doctors said,
had passed a perfectly quiet night. His
temperature at 7 o'clock was 103. S;
pulse, 120, and strong and' regular, and
his respiration was declared to bo sat
isfactory, although no figure was given.
At intervals of two hours during the
night Senator Hanna had been aroused
and given nourishment, after which he
immediately would resume his sleep.
The doctors supplemented the an
nouncement with the statement that the
condition of the Senator at this time
surpassed ail their expectations.
This statement hardly had been IP
sued when an unexpected change for
the worse took place. Dr. Osier had
gone to Mr. Hanna's room, and Dr.
Carter and Secretary Elmer Dover had
stepped down to the dining-room for
breakfast. Dr. Rixoy had not arrived
and the Senator was alone with his
nurses. Suddenly he became noticeably
weaker. Hls rapid breathing excited
alarm and other evident signs of dis
tress caused a hurried summons for
On their almost Instant arrival his
pulse was beating at the alarming rate
i of 137. and his respiration was above
40. The oxygen apparatus was Imme
diately put into use. the broathing-cone

I and nostrlla. and relief secured.
H. M. Hanna, the Senator's brother,
came from the sickroom at noon and
raid that a very decided improvement
in every respect had taken place dur
ing the half-hour immediately pre
ceding. A lapse of nearly two hours then in
tervened without news except of the
moot indefinite character, such 03 "no
change," when suddenly, at 2 o'clock.
Dr. Dick of Ohio and Mr. Dover came
from the Senator's apartments with tho
shocking announcement that the Sena
tor had suffered another severe sinking
ypell and had failed utterly to respond
to all stimulants admlnlslerod to re- I
vivo hlmf- l
This news came like a bolt from a iH
clear sky. Tho hotel corridors had '
been thronged throughout the day with H
anxious inquirers as to the Senator's ,
condition. The latest news from the It 'H
sickroom cauwJ a hush throughout tho j iH
lobbies. Medill McCormick, the Sena
tor's son-in-law, was dli-patolied in. i'l
haste for more powerful stimulants. IH
These came, but the next report, a few
minutes later, said that the doctors de- jH
clarcd tho end to be only a question of ll
perhaps minutes, but. at most, of hours. ll
Then, within a space of three mln- lll
utes, the patient rallied, hlv conscious- Hl
ness returned and. by the exertion of ll
hla wor.dcrful will power, Senator jH
Hanna seemed to pull himself together '
in what the doctors and those at the
bedside regarded as a most miraculous
manner. Sut the fight was bj' no
means won. Although the afternoon re
lapse had been rallied from. It had left, ll
a badly weakened frame for future bat
ties. The restorative:; wore continued, ll
and the Senator dowd again into a ll
Dr. Carter's description of the slnk- I
ir.g spell, made public shortly after 3
o'clock, was as follows: i IH
"At 10:20 o'clock a very xtnexpcotedi ll
sinking spell came on. We at once'
started work on tho Senator, but he I Pl
failed to respond' to the restoratives ap-1 I i
plied. During this spell the pulse en-
tlrcly disappeared from tho wrist and n i
only a slight flutter of the heart could I
be detected. We kept applying other ;
l stimulants and finally got a slight re- !
sponse. Now he has a pretty good pulse t I
and also respiration. The spell was de-,
cidedly worse than the one this morn-1 I
Asked as to the future outlook, the I
doctor replied' I
"We can only work and hope.
J When the situation looked most crltl- , J
cal tills afternoon the members of the . ,
family were assembled ia the sickroom.
Mrs. Hanna has been in almost con
stant attendance at the bedside. Others
in the room were tho daughters, Ruth ,
and Mabel, respectively: Mrs. Medill I
