the- secret ' away to Lee and Snider,
who claimed that they also had- several
letters to prove their Btory. They de- ,
manded that Cotter pay them $200 to
keep quiet, or if he failed to do so,
would let. the world know all the facts
in the caso and place Cotter behind) the
bars. Cotter, knowing- that the- scheme
of extortion and blackmail had no
foundation to far aD he waa concerned
communicated with the officials and ar
ranged another meeting- with the two
American Fork men. Two witnesses
were concealed-, and the extortioners
easily fell Into the trap. They met. as
requested, in Cotter's store, and1 again
made their demands and threats, and
this time produced the letters also.
Cotter, after reading: the letters, made
an excuso to go Into the main store,
nnd handed the Jettero to the two de
tectives, and made believe that ho had
mislaid them. Snidxir and Lee by this
j time had become alarmed, and making
an excuse agroed to call again, but were
shortly afterwards arrested under the
charge of extortion. To protect them

JAPAN ANSWERS RUSSIA'S
CHARGE OF TREACHERY
Denies That She Is Guilty of a Breach of Interna
tional Law, but on the Contrary, Acted in Only
Manner Consistent With Safety,
"WASHINGTON, March 1. The fol
lowing authorized statement received
today from his Government is given
out by the Japanese Minister:
"The Russian Government has
charged Japan with having treacher
ously obtained a victory by a sudden
attack upon Russia, who, was bent on
maintaining peace. It is further as
serted in theBc communiques that since
a rupture of diplomatic relations cn.n
never be looked upon as the opening of
hostilities, and since Japan did not is
sue n, declaration of war until the 11th
of February, she has been guilty of a
flagrant breach of the principles of In
ternational law in making, as early as
the Sth of February, most unwarrant
able attacks on Russian men-of-war
and merchant vessels. '
"The answer to these charges may be
found in the action of Russia, herself.
That her Government never enter
tained any sincero desire for peace can
be clearly seen from its own conduct.
Throughout the whole course of the ne
gotiations Russia pcrristcntly refused
to meet the proposals made by Japan

PARK CITY. March 1. The policy of
development inaugurated at tho Daly
Judge mine following the closing , of tho
mill is bearing fruit to .1 degrco' which
surpasses the fondest expectations of
thoso who advocated tho change.
In splto of the silence and reticence of
tho management tho disclosures havo
been of such a nature that it has been
practically Impouslblo to conceal the truth.
Oro from the latest discoveries has been
brought to town at various times and
may bo found exhibited on tho quiet at
sundry places, and men have taken from
timo to tlmo specimens from tho oro bins
at the mill where the Incidental car lots
arc being stored that roveal wonders of
Two of theso Kamplcs which are being

conspicuous among the specimens
brought down, deserve mention.
Ono Is of tho greon and gray compounds
of copper and is said to be unlike any
thing heretofore found In tho mine, and
the other is exhibited with assurance by
the person, who brought it from the drift
that It carries 150) ounces in silver. What
ever be tho values it contains. It bears a
striking resemblance to the gray copper
oro taken from tho cave discovered In the
Daly-Judgo last fall, which assayed sev
eral hundred ounces In silver.
Tho latest oro shown from tho Daly
Judgo Is an excellent grade of carbonates
taken from a drift, we arc Informed, on
the HOO-foot level, which, so tho Infor
mants assure U3, hao been in practically
a full face of ore for a month or for a
hundred feet. Tho copper ore is said to
come from tho 1200-foot level.
All the drlft3 now In oro are said to bo
bearing In a southerly direction, and It
la the opinion that they aro Just beyond '
the limits of tho old Anchor grounds Into
the new Daly-Judge territory, ubout
which so much ls predicted. Owners of
properly in tho Bonanza Flat region, for
which operations aro said to be heading,
already feel a secret elation over the mag
nitude and wealth of these disclosures.
There Is a striking coincident connected
with the change of management and pol
icy of the Daly-Judgo, If reports ema
nating from the- mlno can bo trusted.
When John McSorley took charge and
started men to work on tho drift which
now contains the most magnificent show

large force of cavalry; troops have been
constantly sent by military train from
Russia to the fnr East, until the Rus

time plans were being made for send

ACTIVITY AT PORT ARTHUR.
"During the same period there has
been the greatest activity possible at
Port Arthur and at Vladivostok, and
work has been carried on day and night
to strengthen the fortifications of those
naval ports, while forts have been
built at Hunchun. Llao Yang and oth
er strategic points, and large quanti
ties of arms and ammunition have been
sent to tho far East by the Siberian
railway nnd the vessels of the volun
"In the middle of October last a train
of fourteen curs was hurriedly sent
from Russia laden with the equipment
of a field hospital. From these mlli
tary and naval preparations of every
description, made during the progress
of the negotiations, it is quite evident
that Russia was not inclined to a
friendly settlement of the questions
then under discussion between Japan
and herself, but soughl solely by her
military preponderance to force Japan
into submission. Dining the latter part
of January and up to the beginning of
February Russian military activity
wao still further intensified.
"On January' 21st about two bat
talions of Infantry and a detachment
of cavalry were ent from Port Arthur
and Dalny to the northern frontier of
Korea and on January 2Sth a formal
order to prepare for war was given by
Admiral Alexleff to the forces which
were stationed In the vicinity of the
Yalu. On February 1st the military
commandant at Vladivostok, under the
orders of his Government, requested
the Japanese commercial agent at that
port to notify his nation that a state
of yjego might be proclaimed nt any
moment, and they must make imme
diate preparations to withdraw to
HabnrovPk. About the same date all of
the ivnrshlps at Port Arthur, except a
battleship then under repairs, made a
naval demonstration by leaving port,
while troops were advanced in large
numbers from Llao Yang toward the
Yalu. In view of the6o facts who can
iy that Russia had no war-like inten
tions or that she was unprepared- for
"Seeing thai the situation had be
come 3 critical that it admitted of no
further delay, the Japanese Govern
ment was compelled to break off nego
tiations that had proved abortive and
to take the necessary steps for lf-pro-tection.
But the responsibility for the
challenge to war rests not with Japan,
but solely with Russia.
NOTICE THAT MEANT WAR.
"On the Cth of February Japan an
nounced to Russia her decision to ter
minate the pending negotiations and to
take such Independent action as she
mlghl deem beat to defend her position
menaced by Rusda, and to protect her
established rights nnd legitimate in
terests. At the same time the Govern
ment of Japan informed the Russian
Governmont thai as Its moderate and
unselfish proposals in tho Interest of n
firm and lasting peace In the far East
had not received the consideration
which wau their due. Japan had re
solved to eever her diplomatic relations
with Russia, which for the reason
named had ceased' to possess value, and
to withdraw her legation.
"The term 'Independent action'
naturally included tho opening of hos
tilities. The fact that Russia was un
able to understand It in that light is.
of course, no reason why Japan should
be responsible for the misinterpretation
made by Russia. It la the nlmot
unanimous opinion of international
Jurists that a declaration of war Is not
an Indispensable prerequisite to the
opening of hostilities. Indeed, it has
been the common practice in recent
waro to declare war after hostilities
have been begun. Japan's action,
therefore, is not open to the least criti
cism iu this regard. From the stand
point of International law it must he
understood that the charges made
against her do not come with good
grace from Russia, inasmuch as there
are not only many historical instances
of Russia herself resorting to hostilities
without declaration of war, but ono
case, that of her invasion of Finland
in 1S03, when she began war beforo
there had even been a rupture of diplo
