Russia and Japan Preparing for Peace.
Washington, June 12.?The warring
countries having formally agreed to
try to conclude peace, the next step
will be the first direct exchange in
which Japan is expected to take the
initiative, indicating doubtless through
an intermediary at Washington^ its t
views as to th? time and place of meet- j
ing. Russia will otter no objection to a
reasonable suggestion, beiug prepared
to issue immediately instructions to
her preliminary plenipotentiary, whose
personality depends upon the place
Ambassador Cassini called on the
President today to express the Russian
government's consent t. > the President's
proposition and to state that Russia
would appoint plenip ?teutinries to
meet the plenipotentiaries of Japan to
discuss the. question oJ peace. The
place of meeting is at present being
St. Petersburg, June 1 -2?A11 attempts
to-createnu impression that then-is
the slightest hitch in the preliminary
negotiations are absolutely without, a
shadow of foundation. Foreign Min
ister Lamsdorl)' has formally notified
several continental powers thata meet
ing of plenipotentiaries to see whether
it is possible to agree to tenus of peace
Now that Russia luis received a for
mal notification that Japan has sent her
official and favorable reply to President
Roosevelt, the Kassian official reply
bat been forwatded.
The Associated Press feels that it is
in a position instate positively that the
reply will fully respond to the Presi
dent's message. '1 hero does not seem
to bo the slightest warrant for tho gra
tuitous idea some correspondents are
putting out. that Russia is only desirous
of ascertaining tho Japanese conditions
ami at the same lime gain a better po
sition for her army in Manchuria.

Union, S. C, June 8.?Never r ,re
tho words, "Love will tina" a* way,"
more fully, exemplified than yesterday
when quite a romantic marriage oc
curred. The contracting parties were
Miss Julia Edwards and Mr. Robert
Justice. Thia couple determined to
marry while the parents of MiBS Ed
wards were away from home. They
came to tho city but not being able to
lind a rr.inister secured a horse and
buggy ?ind drove font miles in the
country, but when, they got there the
minister was absent, so they must
needs hunt another. They drove ten
miles to Jones vi lie andrtbers secured
the services of .Rev. D. E. Camack.
The then happy conple started for
home, bat their happiness wob short.
After roaching about half way home
they met the father and mother of |
the fui* bride, who at once hauled the
couple cut of the buggy and Buxu?u??
tcred a sound thrashing to the young
man and took the. young bride on
home. But the groom was determined
not tobe downed, so he swore out a
warrant against his fatber-in-law for
assault and battery and bad him lod
ged in jail. Th? ?ntorn then agreed to
release the father if he would give
him back his fair-won bride. This ho
did and all are now happy.
