New York, June 27. Before sailing
for Pussia on the steamship Kaiser
Wilhelm der Crosse Count Arthur
Casslni, the Russian ambassador in
this country, said some interesting
things about the tariff trouble between
the United States and Russia. lie
said that the tirst thing be Intended
doing on his arrival in St. Petersburg
was to see M. de Witte, the Itussiau
minister of finance, about It. He did
not think that ICussia. in reprisal fur
our duties on Russian petroleunu
would impose a high duty on agricul
tural lurcbincry of American manu
"fooltl It la of no Consequence."
"The diplomatic relations." he said,
"between alussia und America are of
the most friendly nature, und this so
called conflict between them on ac
count of the tariff is an exceedingly
small matter, and will no doubt be set
tled within n very short time, and sat
isfactorily to both countries. It Is part
of my duty to clear away any clouds
of misunderstanding between the. two
countries, and there Is absolutely u0
danger that the present cordial rela
tions will be disturbed by the tariff
business. It Is a very small matter.
but. to be perfectly frank, the agitation
was started on this side of the water.
and I shall do all I can to stragihten
out the trouble.
Gltrt l'a a Small Bint, However.
The Russian minister of finance
declared that Russia did not pay any
bounty on her sugar, and It was said
here that the question left tine in doubt
and to give what is termed in a jury
room 'the benefit of the doubt.' a high
tariff was placed on yur sugar. .This
tioiioi . is vf a rainer uesiionaiue na
ture, for sltouM there be n commercial
war which is nltogether unlikely
between the United States and Russia
Ihls country wouUl be the loser, as the
Russian exjiorts oti'theso- slures
amount to annually only ?3.nmm.
while the' United-States scuds millions
of dollars' worth of her products to
Russia every year. The volurce of i
trade is increasing every ycir. and it j
I. onlv betrlnnlmr to crow oil Russian
soil. so you see what I meau-wlien I
say that Americans would be tbe. lowers
by a commercial war. -

this would surely not be desirable to

I said hefcre. the trouble dives not
rmouut to much, ami with such men
ns Secretary ;cc at the helm the mat
ter will be straightened out. but It is
to be dep!cred that such a thing' h;is
hafiiieuetl at this time. The relations
between lwith countries are very-. cor
dial, and no better testimonal of thi
can 1h had when yon look at the policy
each country adopted In relation to the
recent trouble in China. Both are al
most alike. I do not think that there
Is any danger of Russia Imposing: a
prohibitive tax on any agricultural ma
chinery coming from these shores, but
America should meet us half wny In
this affair, and especially so in view
of the incalculable lieiiofits American

The entertainments included a con

service. Mrs. Corn wa Ills-West (form
