SPECIAL 1W CAIil.B.
Yalta, Russia, Oct. IS. (Copyright. iffl.
ty tho New York Herald Company.) While
In St. Petersburg a few days I was ablo
to gauge up to a certain desree tho vast
r.mount of annoyance which recent even:s
In China had caufed in the Russian For
eign Ofjcs., Tii.2nnoyanco was unlimited.
l'here are tnusc who have held that Rus
rla was at the bottom of all the recent
ChlneFO troubles. Never wero people moro
utterly misled than those who formed s,uch
a concluMo.n. It Is utterly fal.-e.
On the contrary, what I It amed In St.
Petersburg was that, so far from fomenting
nny trouble In the Far Last, Count .Mo-i-a-v.'eff.
tho la to Minister for Foreign Affnl-s,
waj so utteily unsuspecting of tho t' mote
events which sent tho whole of Uurope Into
paroxysms of alarm the Insurrection,
massacres and the like that when tu
whole truth burst upon him it was with a
:tu.-Idenncss th:.t caused his death.
In St. Petersburg I found that tho im
pulsive action of the G-rman Ka!er Is
taken very seriously a3 marking a new lino
of German policy, a working away from
Russia and thus a direct departure from the
ItNmarckian policy, which was hlgh'.y
prized by Russia. The Kinperor's couro
had caused likewise n feeding of resentment.
Tho right ptr-on was here, a personage
who has the rlsht to j-peal: uron the
foreign Ixjlltles of Rus.ti.i. and none could
doubt his knowledge. It Is not the Czar.
You can gues who Is. and you Will prob
ably guess right the first time. He m es his
Imperial Majesty daily and is fully con
versant with the Emperor's political views.
What he sild In general follow:
"The position taken by the United States
has been in the highest dc-ree gratlfving
to Russia. I have noticed in all our dea -Ings
with the United State how tiuicklv
and intelligently the true meaning of the
rituatiun was grasped. In this cjso t.f
China the American Government at onco
seized with practical Instinct th. true line
to follow, eo us to obtain Justice without
placing the Government in an lmp-ss.bio
position and thus defeating tho very ends
necessary to obtain if peace were to be pre
served." "Hut. jour Excellency, evil d s,j,ns have
been attributid to liusia in this e'h.iie.-..
matter. Among other things, it has l.vn
said sho Iwid brought about the cntirn
Frienilffliip for America.
"What sensible, thinking person Is going
to bellove t-uch a thing a3 that In the face
of facts7 Russia's net.ou has bee-u an open
book from beginning to end."
Then, continuing with mor force in his
tone, he said:
"I defy any one to show that Ru-bia has
deviated In any respect from tho policy
which has btcn announced, and which it
glvtn openly In tho Russian press-. What
Russia undertook to do she did. Hvr policy
has been open and perfectly simple from

With an impatleut Gesture, ho replied.
"How ridiculous, in the face of ovenfs.
The truth Is that so far from havlnir ue
signs upon Manchuria. Rus'a's frontier in
that part was not properly protected. We
are po unprepared that we had to submit to
be attacked and frimixirileJ. Does that look
like our being prepared to annex Man
churia7" It Is none too politio In Russia to touch
uiMin the name ot tho Czar, so I asked him
what ho thought of the Czar himself. b
ing talked of as a partisan of war. At this
he locked as if he thought of asking wheth
er Fueh a thing could be 'meant seriously;
then, replying, he said:
"Can any one believe that. In the face of
what my august master has done to show
himself the truest friend of penccT"
At this point the conversation turned up
on the peace convention at The Hague, and
the energetic manner In which Americans
had taken up the matter, compared with
the lukewarmness of many other nations.
This his Excellency admitted, saying:
"His Majesty the Emperor never omits nr.
opportunity of commenting upon the good
si irit of Americans upon all matters In
which we have come In contact."
This led on to the matter of rubst.inti.il
Interests which should bring the United
States and Russia together arid of the
early Increasing trade relations which tho
United States were building up with Russia.
ot SerWInc Territory.
Finally we came back to the Chirco
aucstlon. Putting some rather pointed
questions. I asked him whether he knew of
the report, which had fo-.nd some believers,
that Russia had sugg'sted the recall of the
allied troops so that, havin? once got them
away, she might herself at a given moment
return and occupy tho Chinese capital.
"Really," he said, "the whole matter ap
pears to me so simple-. Our Ministers and
our people were In great danger In Pekln.
It was one duty to relieve them. We under

"Hut Pekln from that moment had nn
further Importance, because It was no
longer tho t-eat of tho ChlneFO Govern
ment." "Russlri does not, then, want to gain ter
ritory In China?"
IIIi Excellency sut back and looked un
utterable things. That, with a touch of
sarcasm In his voice, lie said:
"Just look at our country."
"Can nny one who knows this country
Imaglno for a moment that Russia Is In
want of neditional territory?"
"Rut Russia nteds harbors."
"Russia," replied his Evccllency, "is
i cmito content with what she has got. What
s.he wuncs is time to develop."
"Rut suppose Germany forces tho situa
tion?" "If the other Powers, one or any of them,
wero to thftik It right to push matters and
.inius Chinese territory, then Rus.-la would
have to come In and hold her own. That
Is not whit Rusla wishes. Such a policy
would only be forced upon hrr."

Governor Roosevelt's shameful desertion
of tho duties to v.-hlch he is sworn lias
had much to do with this recession of Re
publican sentiment. The It- publicans them
selves are awar cf It and are tolng la a

no loophole of excuse for Roosevelt.
At almost every station along the route
to-day they had ported hugo bills warning
the voters against Democracy in the fol
"Rryan Is here, lis t-1 ction means na

"A vote for Rrvan is a voto for low waises
or no wages: brea I riots and siup'ioUse3."
There were no foot notes explaining why
Bryan's election meant nalionil dishonor.
There wero no postscripts telling how he

"If you vote the Democratic ticket, do you
think there will be a drought? Tho Re
pubiicars do not control the rain crop. If
they did you can depend that you woulJ
have to buy every shower."
When the train rolled away the crowd
was still laughing ar.d cheering.
At Johnstown, a notoriously Republican
town, there were 2rt persons ar.d a band.
Speaking of the trusts, Bryan expressed his
belief that they should run their business
through the legislature Instead of forcing
upon the people a government of the syndi
cates and for the syndicates.
"Suppose all these glove factories were
combined under one management." he sild.
"what would hapien then? Your trade
would be ru)nel ar.d your poverty assured.
Under the present condition if an emplover
does not pay ou fair wages there Is an
opportunity of going to other employer in

There was a splendid crowd and much en

persons were gathered around the speak

city looked very gay. Hundreds of flam
waved from the windows and along the
streets. It was a great turnout for a
stanch Republican stronghold and un
doubtedly Indicated a great change of senti
ment. In Ms discourse, Mr. Bryan said:
The great .danger of the country at tb
preent time is that a great industrial
despotism may be "established and tho
cahrres cf tho children for futuro inde
pendence and prosperity bo lessened.
"I want the avenues of trade left open to

Rryan made practically tho ssrao ppreal
to 2.000 persons at Herkimer and 2.SM at

Here stood tho huge deserted ships of tho
Wot Shore Railroad, without a sign cf life.
The crowd nbcut tho station was small
because the town had been deserted ar
bitrarily by the rallrcad. Scarcely had
Rryan begun to speak before a raggtd
looklng man shouted shrilly:
"Chauncey Depew has bankrupted th's
village. We have nothing now but empty
houses and empty dinner pall."
"Then." replied Bryan quickly, "thero Is
no need why you should bo told of tho ef

It was here In Syracuse, however, that
the crowning demonstration of the day took
place. From the city limits to the depot
tho engine of the Bryan train ran ovsr a
continuous lino of torpedoes. They sounded
like Infantry fire In a tattle.
As Rryan emerged from his car the rain
ccazed and every man, woman and child
who had taken shelter rushed for tho
