JAPANESE AND RUSSIAN ENVOYS
COMPUTE THiIR WORK.
The 17th and Concluding Article of
Treaty Provides Exchange of Ratifi
cations Shall Occur Within 50 Days
After Being Signed—Governor Pres
ent to Witness Signing of Treaty.
Portsmouth, Sept. 4. —From an o(Ii
clal source the Associated Press is
informed that the treaty is completed.
It consists of a preamble and 17 arti
cles. Hut there were still differences
about the wording of the protocol of
the last sitting which must be signed
before the treaty itself can be signed.
The Japanese presented a protocol
to which the Russians took exception.
The ITth and concluding article ol
the treaty provides that the exchange
of ratifications shall occur within BO
days after being signed by the pleni
potentiaries. The Russian ratification
will be communicated to the Japanese
government by the French minister ai
Toklo, and Mr. Meyer, the American
ambassador at St. Petersburg, will
communicate the Japanese ratification
to the Russian government.
After being treated to every variety
of weather the peace conference prom
io oiid in tin 1 midst of a raging
northeaster, since last night it lias
been blowing a gale, accompanied by
torrents »>t' rain. According to Local
traditions such northeasters continue
for three days, so that it probably will
hist over the day on which the treaty
The plenipotentiaries and the at
tachea of the two missions .seem to be
fully as anxious for the curtain to
ring down on the final art of the dra
ma as the little colony of newspaper
correspondents and summer guests
who are awaiting to be "in at the
death." The work of engrossing the
treaty has already been begun, Mr.
Rojestvensky is doing the callgraphic
work of the French and Mr. Adashl

Sticklers for Words.
Controversies over the phraseology
Still continue and there were several
conferences today between Mr. De
Marteni and Mr. Dennison, differences
being referred for adjustment to the
principals. The Japanese are proving
great sticklers for words. They cling
tenaciously to their ideas. Careful
preparation and methods have been
the secret of their successes on land
and sea, and in their diplomatic strug
gles at Portsmouth the same qualities
have been displayed.
In tlio sittings of tho conference
Baron Komura always Btated the Japa
nese position upon a given point brief
ly, bin with great care, ami when M.
Wltte, whose method was entirely dif
ferent, would try to draw out explana
tions, he would stick doggedly to the
statement he had made.
M. Witte, a man of affairs, resource
ful and talented as he is admitted to
be, had his case in his head. Ho nevei
brought any paper with him. He met
everything which came up in an off
hand way, weighing it instantly in his
mind, analyzing it, arguing the. pro
and con, and stating his view quite
bluntjy, never asking for time to con

could with the greatest difficulty he

slowly, as if he had learned his les
son by rote. Several times M. Witte
"Yes, i understand perfectly what
you say, but wbat do you mean, what
is your real object ?"
Then Baron Komura would go back
and restate his proposition almost ex
actlj • originally. Both
Bystema bad their advantages, By in
sisting, i' Insisting, Baron Ko
mura would sometimes catch M. Witte
(iff his guard and 2 provoke him Into
statements which were always eagerly
M. Win*' seldom had a crystallzed
counter proposition to make. But on
the other hand, whenever M. Wltte
succeeded In leading hit adversary in
to the realm of argument where previ
ous preparation availed he had Baron
Komura at a disadvantage. One of
those present linked Baron Komura to
a horse in "blinkers." As lon^ as be

readily, but the instant he was off
the road into the woods with the "blin

Now when the Japanese are still
continuing their policy of insisting up
on words or phrases, M. Witte is show
ing considerable Impatience. He is ex
tremely anvious to have the treaty
finished and signed at the earliest
moment to preclude the possibility of
pressure from the home government
on minor points.
Especially at St. Petersburg; there
istant danger that instructions at
the lapt moment may come to try to
get this concession or that concession,
and thus bring on diplomatic discus
sions which might indefinitely prolong
It has been estimated that should
any one desire to purchase the rail
ways of the world his outlay would
amount to something like $36,680,000.
IDAHO FORESTRY SETTLED.
Boise.'ldaho, Sept. «. —As the result
of a conference between Governor
Gooding and Gifford Pinchot, chief of
the forestry service, a perfect under
standing between the state and national
ivcrninent has been reached on the
subject of forest leserves in this state.
The government and forestry service
will cooperate hereafter to the fullest
extent on all matters pertaining to the
protection of forest and water sheds.
An important feature of the under
standing is in relation to the state
6chool sections embraced in the re-
serves. After Governor Gooding had
set forth the condition in which these
school sections are left, an agreement
was reached that the state should be
given a solid body of timber land in ex
change for such school lands, this land
to be maintained as state reserve, pro
ceeds of timber from it goiLg to
the public schools fund.

F. \V. Palmer practically has been
ousted from office. Jt was learned
authoritatively that President Roose
velt had demanded Mr. Palmers's res
ignation, to take effect on the 15th in

of Kicketts and Hay on the ground that

he directed Public Printer Palmer to
forward his resignation to him, to take
effect in two weeks.

BRITAIN AND JAPAN
THEY MAY FORM LEAGUE TO
DOMINATE OVER ASIA.
Hold Slav Down —England Strength
ens Position Against an Invasion—
Little Faith in Ameer—Alliance of ,
Island Empires May Be Sufficiently
Strong to Protect Asiatic Dominions
London, Sept. 4. —Great Britain and
Japan are in league for the lord
ship of Asia. Lord Laudsdowne and
Baron Hayashi have scored again in
the opinion of officialdom and two
great facts stand conspicuous in the
policy (jf Great Britain now that the
mists have rolled away from the Ports
mouth conference. One is the en
larged alliance with Japan and the
oilier is a new program in India. Per
haps the two should be considered as
one, since each is distinctively aiiti-
Russian in origin and tendency. By
ilie alliance, in its new form, the con
tracting [lowers hold Russia is the na
tion whose aggressions they have
most to fear. The Jajiane.se and Brit
ons are convinced she will take the
earliest opportunity to recoup herself
for the loss of Manchuria.
By tlie new Indian program it is
Bought to strengthen Great Britain's
position on the northwestern frontier
against a Russian invasion via Afgha
nistan. London has little confidence
in tlie present ameer of Afghanistan
and the buffer slate is no longer re
garded as likely to help check the
Russians, should they try to descend I,
upon the fertile plains of India.
Lord Kitchener's mandate that a
complete reorganization of the Anglo-
Indian army is Imperative is univer
sally approved in Great Britain bo
enuse ii dovetails with the extended
alliance under which the two island
empires are in agreement to prevent
Russia from interfering on any point
with the Asiatic dominions of each
The outcome of such vast changes
of policy is almost inconceivable, ac
cording to high authority.
