Portsmouth, N. H., Aug. 12. The
meeting of the peace conference this
morning lasted little more than an
hour. The Russian reply was deliv
ered by Mr. Witte and the meeting
was adjourned to give Baron Knmura
and his colleagues an opjiortunity to
examine the document.
Mr. Witte Indicated courteously
that he would expect the Japanese
response as speedily as was observed
the Interpretation of the Russian re
ply, and this was readily assented to.
The Russian envoys and Japanese
alike, remained at the navy yard.
The Japanese plenipotentiaries have
agreed to make their Russian reply
at 3 o'clock thla afternoon or the
same time tomorrow.
The Associated Press Is in a posi
tion to state that the Japanese be
lieve the Russians have been laying
a foundation for the claim that the
responsibility for the rupture, if one
conies, will have been due to their
attitude of refusal to compromise.
They have decided in case of a break,

St. Petersburg, Aug. 12. The dis

OYAMA IS READY TO
FALL ON LINEVITCH.
Portsmouth, Aug. 12. So pessimis
tic is the feeling among those in con
fidence of both sides that the predic
tion was made that if a meeting should
be held this afternoon, it might be the
last, and the history of the "Washing

If negotiations shall be broken off,
Oyama will immediately give battle
The Associated Press learns from
an unimpeachable source that Oyama's
plans have been perfected, his army
is ready, and he only awaits the sig
nal that a rupture has occurred, to
launcn nis attack.
The Russian reply to the Japanese
terms declines to admit discussion
upon two points, indemnity and the
cession or Sakhalin. Others it ac
cepts, and still others it accepts con
ditionally. It sets forth reasons and
aiguments for decision In each case.
The argument against the payment
of an Indemnity or cession of terri
tory. Is based upon the general the
ory that Russia is not responsible for
the war, and that as Russia is still
prepared to continue the struggle, and
has sought this meeting not as a van
quished country begging for terms,
hut because she sincerely desired
peace, if honorable peace is possible
therefore, she could nefther agree to
toot Japan s bill for war nor accede
to any demands for territory.

This announcement came from Mr.
Conger as the result of a question

by the president because of his wide
knowledge of the Chinese, who threat

States no end of trouble.
It will be remembered that Mr. Con
ger was ambassador to China during
the stormy days of the Boxer up-ris-ln,
and he is thoroughly acquainted
with the Chinese situation.
However, he refused to discuss it
and avoided the subject by saying
that if he was having any difficulty In
Mexico, he would very much dislike to
have W. W. Rockhill, ambassador to
China, meddle with his affairs.
The. reporter touched on the

Free Trade Proposed With

over a week, the concensus of opinion
of the majority of Its members on the
free admission of the Philippine isl
ami's products into the markets of
the United States has been obtained.
It can be stated without fear of con

in the Dlngley tariff have convinced
themselves that sugar and tobacco
from the islands will in no wise men
ace like products of the United States.
It can be stated upon no less au
thority than that of Representative
C. H. Grosvenor, of Ohio, thai the
Cooper bill, which was favoraoly re
ported by the house committee at the
last session of congress, will now be
amended, providing for free trade, in
stead of the proposed reduction of 25
per cent on the prevailing Dingley
Mr. Grosvenor says: "The amend
ment will be offered by Representative
S. E. Payne, of New York, chairman
of the committee on ways and means,
providing for the free admission of

for its passage is very favorable."
