Oyama Begins to Talk.
Field Marshal Oyama on Maroh 22
gave out to a correspondent the first
interview nineo coming into the field.
He refused to disouss the probability
of peace. "1 am only a soldier," he
said, "not a politioian. The Japa
nese government will arrange terms
of peaoe when the time comes. We
were forced to fight this war in the
interesta of international peaoe and
for the safety of our country. Per
aonally, I have a high regard for
Russians. They are soldiers. The
officers and men are brave and able
and have fought well. During the
war between China and Japan I was
the commander of the army whioh
captured Port Arthur. With
division and a half of troops we took
the oity in five hours. The result
villis time shows the wonderful differ
ence between the Russians and the
Chinese with whom we had previous
experienoe. But our army, both sol
diers and officers, performed their
duty as Japan knew they would. I
was minister of the war for Japan
for 16 years, during whioh time con
scription laws were passed. I have
closely watched the making of the
Japanese army, whioh has proved
what I say, that the offioers and the
men have fulfilled every hope, as I
believed they would, as in the oidor
days when the Japanese army was
composed of the Samori, professional
fighting men. The modern army
was drafted from all olasses, yet all
our hopes have boen fully realized, by
tho work this army has done in
Field Marshal Oyama deolined to
discuss the future movements or
plans of the Japanese army. Ila in
timated that he was ready to con
tinue the war na long as necessary.
Despite the report to the contrary,

excellent. With his staff he is com

Two Men Commit Suicide Together.
Henry L. Woodward, an attorney
of New York oity, and Charles A.
Brouz, a traveling oalestn&s for the
National Supply Co., of Toledo,
Ohio, committed Buioide in their
rooms at the Hollenden Hotel,
Cleveland, Ohio, sometime daring
the night of Maroh 27, or on the
morning of Maroh 28. Their bodies
were found in the afternoon. The
coroner's verdict in each oase gives
despondency over domestio and busi
ness troubles as the cause of the sui
cides. Both men had used a pistol
and had sent a bullet into their
heads in almost the same spot.
A number of letters were found in
Woodward's possession from his
wife in New York, which showed
that Woodward evidently had been
suffering from despondency. Their
contents were affectionate in tone
and pleaded for Woodward's return
home and for a reply to the letters.
The number of letters showed that
there had been two or thurn a day.
So far as is known there waa no
agreement between the two men to
end their lives, although it is said
that they had been seen together in
the lobby of the hotel. Brouz's
home was at Wadsworth, Ohio.

he wanted to "fight it out." This
