Stanford Is keeping a sharp lookout for
three Italian bunko men who obtained

while drinking met three countrymen,
one of whom confided to Zerba and the
other two strangers that he had discov

thousand dollars in a field near the State
Hospital. The confederates were anxious
to buy the box, offered J230 for it. The
stranger finally agreed to sell for $400 and
Zerba put up nine $20 gold pieces and
the other two men the balance.
The quartet went to the spot designated
and dug up a tin box. On the way back
to town the three strangers disappeared,
but Zerba was so Intent on getting to a
blacksmith shop to open the box that he
did not miss them. -He found a sack of

District Attorney Bylngton attempted to
address the jury In his carefully prepared
closing argument, but Judge Lawlor ; sus
tained the objections of the attorneys for
the defendant on the ground that as By
ington had agreed to submit the case last
week without the! closing proceedings "the
court would not | allow him to change In
violation of his agreement. »
Evidence had been submitted and re
jected and the case had become so In
volved that the Judge's final Instructions
to the jury were that a conviction should
not be "brought in unless the defendant
was guilty of willfully : and knowingly
violating the election laws,v and | that if
he acted contrary. to the law] and believed
himself to be acting: ln accordance with
the law he should be acquitted.

CINCINNATI, Jj June - 2.— Miss Alice
Roosevelt' arrived 4 ' here to-day, attended
by her maid, for a visit of a week or"
longer, at "Rookwood," the . Longworth
home. In the absence of Mrs. Longworth;
who left a few days ago for a protracted
visit to her daughter. Countess de Cham
brun, in France, Mrs. Buckner Walling
ford, another daughter, and Nicholas
Longworth, Congressman from the Sec
ond District, are the hosts at "Rook
wood." Congressman Longworth met
Miss Roosevelt at Loveland. a station
about twenty miles out. and escorted her
to the city. .This evening a small dinner
party was given by Mrs. Wallingford and
Mr. Longworth for Miss Roosevelt.
To-morrow Congressman Longworth
and his guests will attend the Latonia
Derby, going. in a private trolley car.
Although the opinion is generally held
here that Miss Roosevelt and Congress
man Longworth are engaged to be mar
ried, it is not likely even if such is the
case that a formal announcement will be
made during this visit, owing to the ab
sence of Mr. Longworth's mother, whose
abrupt departure for Europe on the eve
of the visit of the President's daughter
occasions much comment.

Briefly and in a paraphrased form tiisse
were the arguments used by the . Presi
dent in support of his conviction that 'as
between a continuation of the war and
Immediate peace th» latter would be
greatly to Russia's advantageij^fH
.Having received no word from bis Gov
ernment ' since the annihilation of \ Ro
jestvensky's fleet save the brief official
dispatches telling of the engagement
Count Cassini was unable to do , more
than to give the President his own per
sonal opinions on the situation. The Em
bassador was deeply . touched by the .'sin
cere cordiality of ; his reception and - the
frank and friendly manner in . which tho
President spoke. He could not see. how
ever,. that . there was anything -in the
present situation, unfortunate; as it.un
doubtedly was. for his Government.' which
necessitated Russia's. suing for peace. A3
to : territory, he . pointed : out that -China
and I not Russia bad been the loser, for
even Port Arthur . was , held only > under
lease. :-: On the \u25a0 sea, Russia had nothing
more to lose, . he said.
I It ' was I the \u25a0 Embassador* a firm- opinion
that this, was not "the psychological mo
ment" in which to discuss peace with
11 Whatever 'might be; the ultimate ; dccl-
Appreciating the natural feelings of the
Embassador oa such an occasion, the
President began the conversation by %.
frank personal expression of sympathy
for Count Cassini. alluding to'the sever©
strain under which he has been for the
past few days and deploring the terribls
loss of life and consequent sorrow caused
by the recent battle In the sea of Japan.
Without further preliminaries a general
and entirely Informal and personal con
versation on tho whole situation followed.
The President Informed the Embassa
dor that he earnestly hoped for an early
peace in the Far East, and that in ex
pressing this hope, he voiced not only his
strong personal sentiments and those of
his Government, but cc believed they
were held by all of the powers. His opin
ion was that It would be a mistake for
Russia to continue the war. In addition
to the suffering entailed by the naval con
flict be did not believe that Russia has
anything to win In prolonging hostilities.
The President did not enter into details,
but the personal character of the conver
sation and his long acquaintance with
Count " Cassini enabled him to spe&Jc
plainly regarding the decisive character
of the Japanese victories.
What Japan's probabls peace taams
would be the President was wholly un
able to say. but he dm not • hesitate to
express the opinion that, difficult as these
conditions might prove la the light of
such a victory as that gained In the Ko
rean Straits, they would Increase In se
verity with every day that a state of war
continued. Unless Russia has substantial
hope of administering a decisive defeat, to
Japan in this war, the President believed.'
It would Inure to the interests of the St.
Petersburg Government to conclude peace

WASHINGTON. June Z-The President
to-day struck a blow for pear© in the Fax
East. In conference at tha TVhltd Houso
thia afternoon with Count Q»*^iTtt. the
Russian Embassador. the President ex
pressed the earnest wish that Russia
would forthwith conclude peace with Ja
pan. Prolongation of the war. he believes,
will not result in victory for the Russian
arms and can only serve to increase Ja
pan's demands and render more difficult
the drafting of a treaty of peace which,
the Czar, as welJ^as the Mikado, can sign.
The President spoka. ha said, as the
friend of Russia no less than of Japan,
and on, behalf not only of th© Washing
ton" Government, but In the Interest of
humanity. .Until his word* have reached
Tsaxskoe-Selo and have been communi
cated to Emperor Nicholas in the friend
ly . spirit In which : «-«y; were , v it er cd . the
effect cannot be estimated. Soon after
reaching his . embassy Count Casslni be
gan the preparation of a dispatch to hla
. Neither at the "White Hous* nor at th«
Russian embassy could a formal state
ment .regarding the conference be ob
tained. Throughout the diplomatic corps
there Is & strong hope that to-day's con
ference marked the first step toward
peace, but the general opinion Is that
weeks may elapse before even primary
negotiations can be begun. Diplomats ex
press the hope that Emperor Nicholas
will receive the President's words as the
counsel of that Government which has
for years been Russia's traditional friend.
and win weigh it accordingly.
Unaccompanied, Count . Casaini. tho

and a conference followed that lasted for
