Under Lord Lieutenant.
LONDON, Sept. 25. Tho robort of tho
committee on organization of the Irish
Reform association, which was adopted
at a meeting presided over by Lord
Dunravcn at Dublin Friday, was Issued

tant scheme for tho evolution of Irish
Government In finance and local business.
It suggests thc constitution of an Irish
financial council composed of twenty-four
members under tho presidency of the
Lord Lieutenant and with tho Chief Sec
retary for Ireland us vice-president,
twelve members to be elected by groups
of existing parliamentary constituencies
and twelve to bo nominated by tho
Crown, one-third of the members to re

Tho functions of the council will bo to
administer the $30,000,000 expended annual

statutory bodv should be created, con
sisting of Irl3h representative peerB and
Irish members of the House of Commons,
In addition to tho proposed financial coun
cil and to which Bhould be relegated all

and any other Irish business that might

BIGGER JOB THAN EXPECTED
Japanese Begin to Realize That Rus
sian Defeat Is Afar Off.
TOKIO, Sept 25. Serlousnoss marks
tho popular attltudo toward tho war. It
Is doubtful that tho masses appreciated
In the beginning tho task of cxpolllng
Russia from Manchuria. They had an
easy conlldence In the ability of tho army
and navy to reduco tho fortress of Port
Arthur, destroy tho Russian fleet and
crush Gen. Kuropatkln.
Tho prolongation of the siege, the losses
boforo Port Arthur and Gen. Kuropat
kln's cscapo at Llao Yang havo brought
a general appreciation of the magnitude
of tho national task and dissipated tho
growing hopes of an early peace, based
on expectation of sweeping victories.
Events at Port Arthur and Llao Yang
havo impressively warned thc Japanese
to prepare for a long and trying war.
Faith In tho final outcome, however, ro
malns unshaken and tho nation has reso
lutely and determinedly settled down,
prepared to mako sacrltlccs and pay the
price that success demands..
Tho strain of war and tho drain upon
tho country's resources has not yot boon
felt to any extent among tho people.
Some lines of business are suffering, but
tho aggrcgato foreign and domestic trado
oxcclls that of 1903. Tho crops, particu
larly rice, aro tho largest pver grown.
Death from wounds and sickness has
overtaken thousands of soldiers but their
vacant places havo been quickly tilled.
Tho supply of able-bodied men anxious
to fight equals all possible demands. Mu
nitions, supplies and money In hand In
dicate tho ability of the country to wago
war without embarrassment and vigor
ously for another year. Tho complotlon

Good Weather for War Coming.
MUKDEN, Sept 25. The halt In ac
tive operations around Mukden 13 be
lieved to bo due not only to tho fatigue
of tho Japanese troops and tho slowness
In getting up necessary additional sup
plies, but to a distinct understanding be
tween tho Chinese fcnd Japar.eso that
there shall bf no bloodshed near tho
"Holy City.' whero the Chlneao Emper
ors aro burled. It Is expected, however,
that thcro will bo lighting north or north
east of Mukdt'n, possibly on a larger scale
oven thnn at Lino Yang. Tho weathor has
become settled and tho best season of tho
year Is now coming, with prospects of a
warm, dry autumn.

With the purpose of forcing the jpi j '

has taken steps to reorganize and u- ,

that within a comparatively short 4- ll

ST. PETERSBURG, Sept. 26. 2:30 a. m. ; .
Tho division and reorganization of tho jj.'r j
Manchurian army, regarding which thoro Jj lll
havo been rumors ever slnco Uio battio .V
of Lino Yang was officially announced to-
day in an Imperial rescript appointing f,: I
Gen. Grlppenborg. commander of tho jf j
Third army corps In tho province of Vll- t;-
nu, as commander of tho Second army ';
corps now being mobilized for immediate f:j Ml
dispatch to the fur East leaving Gen. Iji,
Kuropatkln in command of the First H1 ijl
Tho Emperor personally is convinced ir
that tho political uu well as tho military (V; lJ
prcstlgo of tho empire Is at stake and M.'1
that every other consideration must give lJ '
way before tho exigencies of war. Tho M' rH
resources of the cmplro In men and mon- ).' Jl
oy must bo drained If necessary In order js4i JM
to turn tho Bcale and vindicate tho power
of Russia, k ' ' iH
The reorganization amounts to formal V,; HH
notice to the world us tho Emperor i; i
frankly explains In his rescript that ho IH
Intends to vastly Increase tho number of j)- H
troops at tho theator of tho war In order ? tjH
to forco tho struggle to a successful Issuo 'aj, !
In tho shortest posslblo tlmo. It Is In- f:i
tended to silence definitely all talk of m
foreign Intervention by tho announcement u,
that Russia means to light out the lssuo
with Japan on tho field of battio. n''.
Probably 300,000 additional mon will be '.';
placed In tho Ilcld. Five corps tho Third. tf,
Fom-th. Fifth, Eight and Sixteenth arc
already destined for tho front and tho (i HH
, talk Is that llvo moro corpd will bo sent tH
forward. , . , 'H
Eventually the creation of this second tH
army Involves tho selection of a com- . !IH
mandor-in-chlof. Not only Is thcro no jH
Intimation In the rescript that Gon. J; , 'H
Kuropatkln will havo command of both EUn iH
armies, but ho is distinctly placed upon W, ,'
tho samo footing as Gon. Grippcnburg. i
In tho best Informed circles thcro is lit- ! IH
tic Idea that Viceroy Aloxleff, the prosont M, j 'H
nominal commandor-In-chlitf, will oxor- jijj' , IH
ciso tho actual functions of commandor all , 'jjH
of tho 600,000 or 700,000 men that Russia. iH
has resolved to put In tho Held.
It Is tho best opinion that Grand Duko :
Nicholas Mlchaclovltch, Inspector-General 1; H
of cavalry, will attain tho high com- M ,
mand, occupying In the war with Japan s iH
thc position hold by his father in tho war ;,
with Turkoy. ,

Thoro aro various reports regarding t h;' i
Viceroy Aloxleff's ultimate destiny. It lo i ,Ji ,
declared In some quarters that ho will bo ( l j
recalled and Grand Duko Nlcholns be- j , ,
como Viceroy as well us commander-ln- 1 S 1 1
chief. It Is also said upon apparent equal t Jt;,,
authority that Alexloff will return as lj IH
Chancellor of tho otnplrc, succeeding i'
Count Lamsdorff. Nono of theso roports i
aro definitely continued. j .:' i
Grand Duku Nicholas Is still a young ;; .'l ' i'H
man, not yet 45, with much of his father's j ; iB
dash, energy nnd resolution. Thero Is 1 .i , jB
reason to believe that even with tho ll1'1 ll
memories of tho horrors of thc, Shlpka ffjj . H
winter campaign against tho Turks, of jjy.'. ' iH
which ho was thc witness as a young jj,'i; iH
