VOL XXIII. No. 190. BUTTE MONTANA, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1903. PRICE FIVE CENTS RUSSIAN FORCE IS IN KOREA TO STAY Organ Edited for Viceroy Alexieff Takes a Sig nificant Stand. TIME TO SETTLE IT Port Arthur Paper Says Russians Must Not Yield an Inch. JAPAN IS UNCIYILILED Not Entitled to Consider ation Commonly Given World Powers. BY ASSOCIATED PRESS, Port Arthur, Oct. 28.-The Novykrai, a newspaper edited by a member of Viceroy Alexieff's staff, after reiterating the as sertion that "The Russian troops will re main in Manchuria until far eastern af fairs are settled in accordance with Rus sian views," proceeded to outspokenly lec ture the Japanese, necessarily with the approval of the Russian censorship. "Now," says the Novykrai, "is precisely the proper moment for Russia to establish a political equilibrium in the East. The Japanese have failed in Formosa because they do not understand how to colonize. The efforts of the Japanese to obtain set tlements in Korea, having their own juris diction, would lead to the subjection of the Koreans and impair the society of Korea. Japan has not attained the status of a European state and cannot be en trusted with the rights of European civi lization on the continent. All that can be tolerated is the Immigration of Japanese into Korea under guard." BOTH ARE COMING Senator Clark Has Word From Senator Gibson and J. J. Hill. Senator W. A. Clark is in receipt of a telegram from Senator Gibson of Great Falls stating that he, accompanied by James J. Hill of Minneapolis, will be in this city tomorrow to meet with the other members of the committee. When seen by an Inter Mountain repre sentative today, Senator Clark stated that he is willing and anxious to in any way further the settlement of the deplorable condition confronting the state of Mon tana. "I trust," continued Senator Clark, "that it will be within the province of this com mittee to find some fortunate solution to the question which will hasten an amica ble settlement that will permit the reopen ing of the mines and smelters. "This shutdown means so much to the people of the state that all parties in volved should be willing to consider the interests of the public, and with this in view I hold myself in readiness to assist in relieving the existing difficulty. "At this time it is quite impossible to determne just how or what the committee will decide in the matter, but I feel cer tain the interests of all parties will be consl.ered and the committee will do all within its power to hasten a settlement looking to the protection of the properties of those involved, and to the resumption of work in the mines and smelters and the relief of the thousands of men, women and children affected by the shutdown." Hill Is Coming. SPECIAL TO THE INTER MOUNTAIN. Great Falls, Oct. a8.-Senator Paris Gibson received a telegram today from President Hill of the Great Northern stat ing he had left St. Paul for Butte to try to effect a settlement of the trouble that brought about the shutdown. The assertion that Mr. Rogers is responsible for the alleged shutdown of the plants of the Colorado Fuel & Iron company, is another mendacious one. iMr. Heinze's alleged dis patches regarding it bear all the evi dences of fake. The press dis patches have not reported any such threatened condition, and the state ment that Mr. Rogers is responsible for it is wholly and absolutely with out foundation, and can be nothing but an invention of Mr. Heinze. Mr. Rogers is not even an officer of the Colorado Fuel & Iron company, From William Soallon's reply to F. A. Heinze. EMPEROR TO MEET THE CZAR Rulers of Germany and Russia to Hold a Conference.
