LONDON. Aug. 29.?The papers a

opinions as to the circular of the Em?

such a coup as this suggestion, the frui- .
lion of which is regarded on all sides |
as an absolute impossibility.

Lord Frederick Roberts, or Kanda?
har, '.inander of the forces in ire
land, said in reply to a l'tiquosl for his
opinion:
"It will bo most satisfac lory if such
a proposal can be carried out."
The Earl of Crowe calls the czar's
suggestion a '?historical utterance," and
earnestly hopes that Great Britain will
not object to a conference.
No excitement is noticeable at the
foreign office. It is understood, that a
special messenger was sent from St.
Petersburg recently with a full explan?
ation of the czar's proposal.
Naturally all persons and societies
connected with peace and arbitration
movements are jubilant. Tic- Pope
wired his congratulations to Emperor
Nicholas immediately, and offered ev?
ery assistance in his power to promote
the proposed conference.
The Times, in i:s financial article
this morning, says:
'?'The e/.ar's circular has had a g.I
effect upon the markets, as indicating
that there is no immediate probability
of war. Many people remark the fact
that the pr.sal appears when Rus?
sia's power to borrow freely is almost
ended, and when she plac ed herself in
positions in China and elsewhere which
can be defended only at great cost."

The Kreutz Zeitung says:
"Nu one can yet appreciate the real

sweet conception in France shows it
will not meet with universal approval."
According to ihe Hamburger C.rres
pondez the note will remain forever an
imperishable monument to tin fame or
Emperor Nicholas.

"It stands to reason that Germany
welcomes the- proposal in the most glad
manner, ami is prepared to co-operate

TERN ING POINT IN HLSTOILY.
ST. P ETE B S B I.T I: G, Aug. 29.- The
newspapers here declare that the czar's
manifest', will probably consulate a
turning point in history.

with which it was made tic- dawn of
