TO MAKE PEACE
PRESIDENT SENDS FRIENDLY
NOTE TO RUSSIA AND JAPAN
No Meditator is Needed-Belliger
ents Are Advised to Open
Washington. June 9.-The first pos
itive move for peace in the Far East
"has bee, made and to President
Roo . belongs the credit of hav
ing .ade it.
Feeling assured that a suggestion
from him in the direction of ending
the war would not be unwelcome to
either belligerent, he acted with char
acteristic directness and promptness
in placing fairly an: squarely be
fore the governments of Russia and
Japan a proposition that they get to
gether without tht aid of any third
party and arrange terms for ending
The president's proposal was sub
mitted in the forin of identical notes,
telegraphed yesterday to the Ameri
can diplomatic representatives at St.
Petersburg and Tokio, with instruc
tions to present them to the Russian
and Japanese governmen' -. Tonight,
after information was received that
the notes had been delivered to the
foregin offices of the belligerent pow.
ers, Mr. Loeb, the secretary to the
president, made public the text of the
identical communication. It follows:
The President's Note.
On June 8 the following despatch
was sent by..the president, through
diplomatic channels, to the Japanese
and Russian governments:
"The president feels that the time
.hs come when in the interest of all
mankind he must endeavor to see if it
is not possible to bring to an end the
terrible and lamentable conflict now
being waged. With !both Russia and
Japan the United States has inherited
ties of friendship and good will. It
hopes for the prosperity and welfare
of each, and it feels that the progress
of the world is set back by the war
between those two great nations.
"The president accordingly urges
the Russian and Japanese govern
ments not only for their own sakes,
but in the interest of the whole civi
lized world, to open direct negotia
tions for peace with each other. The
president suggests that those peace
negotiations be conducted directly
and exclusively between the belliger
ents; in other words, that th'ere may
be a meeting of Russian and Japa
nese plentipotentiaries or delegates
wtihout any intermediary, in order to
see if it is not possible for those rep
resentatives of the two powers to
agree to terms of peace. The presi
dent earnestly asks that the Russiait
government do now. agree to such a
meeting and is asking the Japanese
government likewise to agree.
"While the president does not feel
that any intermediary should be call
ed in in respect to the peace negotia
tions th'emselves. he is entirely win
ing to do what he properly can, if the
two powers concerned feel that his
services will be of aid in arranging the
preliminaries as to the time and place
of meeting. But if evern these prelimi
naries can be arranged directly be
tween the two powers, or in any oth
er way, the president will be glad. as
his sole purpose is to bring aboui. a
meeting which: the whole civilized
world will pray may result in peace.
The president was assured before
he determined upon the course he
has pursued, that neither Russia nor
Japan would be offended over any di
rect peace proposals submitted tt
them jointly. Russia is waiting for
Japan to fix the place when and where
the Japanese terms will be placed in
the hands of Russia's representatives.
It is expected that the delay will be
brief. The emperor's government
prefers Paris. shall be the scene of
the initial step.
Tokio received the news of Amer.
ican interventions and prospective
peace calmly. H recognizes that thi
final consummation of peace involves
the adjustment of a series of ques
tions of paramount importance
Nevertheless thre is the keenest in
terest over the preliminary step, and
a feeling of genuine gratefulness foi
President Roosevelt's action. There
ialso genuine thanksgiving at the
thought that the carnage and horror:
and waste of war will soon end, and
a genuine hope that the negotiation!
will bring a satisfactory and endur
