RUSSIAN HONOR NOT INVOLVED
A Leading- Japanese Official Says
Every Interest of Humanity De
mands the Peaceable Adjust

Tokio, Oct. . 17. There is a strong
appeal for peace in the appalling trag
edy which is now under enactment in
Manchuria. Both armies have fought
ferociously for a week, and desperate
fighting still continues. It is probable
that the death roll will be largely In
creased before the final shot is fired.
The preliminary reports indicate
that about 60,000 men have been either
killed or wounded, the larger portion
of them being Russians, since the ar
mies of the two belligerents closed in
Even the Japanese, to whom the
great victory is of paramount import
ance, seem to be shocked by the
slaughter of their enemies. The Jap
anese people are receiving the news
from the field of battle calmly, and
there can be heard no shouts in the
Etreets proclaiming the victory of their
nation. Few flags are displayed. Prob
ably later on there will be a proces
sion, with the consequent jollification,
but there are heard many expressions
of opinion that no demonstration of
any kind should be held. A prominent
Japanese said to a press correspond
"We have won a sweeping and a de
cisive victory which may prove to be
the salvation of our country's exist
ence, but we regret both our own losses
and the terrible slaughter which our
forces have inflicted on the enemy.
We regret still more the necessity
which forced us to engage in this
A member of the diplomatic corps,

"I believe the world will recoil from
the sickening slaughter of this battle.
Every interest of humanity demands
the adjustment of the differences be
tween the two nations and the procla
mation of peace. The situation be
tween the two belligerents is a deli
cate one, but what a splendid triumph
for diplomacy it would be if peace
could be arranged. It seems to me that
the question of honor is no longer in
volved. If Russia feels that such a
question Is involved, surely the heroic
and successful defense of Port Arthur
and the valor shown by Russian sol
diers on the fields of Manchuria should
forever determine the quality of Rus
sian courage. Russians should remem

war. These factors are generally

PATRIOTISM OF JAPANESE.
From 'Empress Down to Peasant Girl
All Make Sacrifices to Help
Societies and associations have been
organized in Japan to relieve the fam
ilies of the fighting men, and every one
makes certain contributions to the relief
fund. Some men contribute money or
goods, some their labor, and most of th
lint and bandage used for the wounded
are the works of women, from the em
press down to the peasant girl, writes
Nobushige Amenomori, in Atlantic.
Littir boys and girls willingly forego
their daily sweetmeats, and give the
small moneys thus saved to the relief
societies. A boy 11 years old in a count,.
school made one day a contribution of
two yen. It was thought too much for a
country boy's gift. The school-teacher
and the elderman of the village suspect
ed the money might have been given the
lad by his parents to satisfy his vanity;
in which case it should be admonished
against. An inquiry was accordingly
made, and brought out the fact that the
boy had actually earned the money for
the purpose by devoting' his play hours
to the making of straw sandals. Even
some criminals working in prisons have
