RUSSIAN TROOPS MOVING.
Hundred Thousand Men En Route to
the Far East.
London, Oct. 1(5.A Tokio dispatch
to the Times says the Russo-Jarj uiese
negotiations are proceeding there and
there is no reason at piesent to ap
prehend any but a iieaeefui issue. The
alleged .Russian fort at Yongampho is
now suited 10 Be merely a signal sta
tion to communicate with Autung, the
port on the Yalu river which is to be
opened for international trade under
the American treaty with China.
The Times correspondents in Russia
send elaborate accounts of military
preparations and the hurrying of
troops to the Far East. They state
that two army corps, with an aggre
ate of LOU.UOU men, are being mobi
lized and dispatched through Siberia
in all haste from the military districts
beyond Moscow, Taraboff and Penza.
It is stated that the war ministry
has already demanded an extra credit
of 25,000,000 roubles for these prepara
tions. M. Witte left the finance min
istry just in time to avoid the disa
greeable situation. His successor is
said to be hardly able to cope with
the difficulties of the situation.
Reserve officers are being refused
passports abroad and there seems no
doubt, says the Times, that the post
ponement of the czar's visit to Italy
Is as much due to the Far Eastern
crisis as to the socialists.
