St. Petersburg. March 15.— At the. Ministry of Finance It was said to-day that the negotiations for a new Russian loan of $1 2.1,000,000 in France are expected to be concluded and signed In Paris in ten days. The representatives of the Credit Lyonnais nd Banqne de Paris et <2es Pays-Bas left St. Petersburg yesterday. It Is pointed out, however, that this does not mean that the negotiations are broken off, the same procedure having been observe'! in the case of the $100,000,000 loan last spring, when, after the negotiations at St. Petersburg, the representa lives returned to Pails, where the contract was signed within a fortnight. .The Associated Press, however, is in a posi tion to assert that the Paris financiers have been pressing for peace, justifying their atti tude on the ground of the enormous French commitments in Russian funds, and those repre sentations have been renewed eince the news of General Kuropatkln's defeat. Their attitude might exercise great influence on the ultimate decision of the government. The peace party Is now distinctly taking the position that the easi est and best manner of concluding the war is to negotiate an alliance with. Japan- defining and protecting the laterects of both countries In the Tar East. The difficulty of the Japanese- English alliance, which Stands in the way at present, could be overcome by a secret clause providing that the alliance go into operation ■when the old alliance expires. The. question of peace still engrosses public attention, but the attitude of the government •apparently remains firm. The Minister of Rail roads. Prince Hilkoff, to-day said that he per sonally would welcome peace, but It was diffi cult to see how it was possible. To end the war under" the present circumstances would be shameful. A peace which would surrender Rus sia's position in th» Far East after the sacri fices of blood and treasure made to attain it and would involve the complete loss of Rus sia's prestige throughout the world would be folly. It was better' to ■go on" fighting. There had been no relaxation in the preparations to prosecute the war. He was now getting ready to go to Siberia to superintend the improvement and double tracking of the line. Prince Hilkoff said the work of the Couligan Commission was complicated, but it was being pressed, and no doubt soon would take form. Anything in the nature of a zemsky sobor was impracticable. A council containing representa tives of the various classes, the nobleß, clergy, peasantry &nd burghers, on a percentage basis, in order to avoid undue -weight in the case of a single class, was the most feasible plan, the non-Russian provinces, with tho exception of Finland, which occupied a position apart, being entitled to a certain number as a whole.

LACK OF RUSSIAN FUNDS, FRENCH MOVE FOR PEACE. Government Influence on Bankers' Action Denied. Paris, March I'l— The postponement of the Russian loan is definitely confirmed. This is likely to exert a powerful influence toward peace, as it is the first time the French financiers have shown a disposition not to advance funds while the uncertainties of war continue. The follow ing details of the postponement are from an au thoritative source: A committee representing the syndicate of French underwriters went to St. Petersburg to arrange the conditions vith the Minister of Finance, and a contract was drawn up for a $120.000 o<>U loan, taking the form of treabui> bonds running seven years at o per cent. The contract was then brought back to Pans for the approval of all The underwriters. In the mean time the disaster in Manchuria naturall> aroused doubts on the part of the financiers whether Russia should make peace or pursue the war The. influence of the financial elements was almost unanimous for peace, but Russia s disinclination to consider peace appears toha.\e induced the decision not to proceed with the contract and according^ the sisninjr, which was expected yesterday, has been postponed, ana all the pending negotiation; are also postponed. According to the feußsian view this does not mean :hut negotiations have been broken off. tat merely that they are adjourned, a? the Rußi-ian authorities aay the syndicate holds it self bound towards Busda now. as before. The Circumstances of the adjournment, however, tend to show that ihc syndicate Inclines to wait for anae definite development of pence before proceeding further. It is authoritatively denied in the highest Russian quarters that the French government exercised any pressure toward preventing the increase of French holdings of Russian securi ties. Nevertheless, it i* probabta that some members of the government, acting individually, volcefl the prevailing view that caution wap de sirable. Smoe ML Heavier has combined in him self the Presidency of the Council of Ministers and the Ministry of Finance, the government has indirectly exercised strong influenc? on private financial affairs. It Is significant that tno postponement of the loan Is coincident with a strong movement of the influential French press favorable to peace. Th" "Matin" prominently displays a statement, believed to reflect the views of financial circles, which declares that if Japan is ready to adopt a generous attitude by waiving an indemnity or the imposition of humiliation on Russia, then Russia's policy of war to the bitter end will cease. It is noticeable that some of the Russian officials speak approvingly of the latter proposi tions. They say peace is Impossible if an in demnity or humiliating conditions are asked, so that the elimination of these two points would go far toward securing favorable consideration of peace. ROTHSCHILD'S VIEWS. Banker Unable to Say Where Rus sia Can Get Funds. London, March 15.— Ixird Rothschild regards the postponement of the Russian loan as tanta mount to a refusal on the part of the French syndicate to treat further. He said: After all, it cannot be a matter for surprise. It in owing to the force of circumstances, and not, I think, to the result of pressure on the part of the French government in the interests of peace. Between $2,500,000,000 and $3,000. <hmhii'm> of French money is Invested In Russia. There is nothing more natural at ihe present time, with the affairs of Russi.i in the st.at«- that they are. both .v home and abroad, than that it should become difficult at last to rind sub scribers in France to another Russian loan. That is all. I think it is force of circumstances and not pressure tending to peace <m the part of the French government. The French know that to continue the war means a revolution in Rus sia, and that to cease it now under the present conditions means a revolution. Lord Rothschild thought it was difficult to pay where Russia would find the money to con tinue the war. NO OFFERS BY JAPAN. Baron Hayashi Repeats Russia Must Make First Move. London, March lo — Baron Hayashi, the Jap anese Minister, in an interview to-day on the subject of peace, said that all suggestions to the effect 'hat Japan had officially or unofficially put forward tentative proposals were absolutely un founded. He added: Whatever individuals may say hereafter, you may regard it as certain that Japan does not mean to put forward peace terms. When Rus sia acknowledges that she is beaten, or expresses her willingness to discuss peace, we shall be ready. T'ntll then we shall continue to flght. M. WITTE READY TO RESIGN.

He is now represented as greatly dissatisfied ,vith his post, and his early retire ment will be no surprise. It is said that M.

British Papers' Views of Battle— Ixyan Rumors. London. March IG.-The London papers con tinue in the belief that to all intents and pur poses the campaign is closed, that it will be next to impossible for Russia to put a new army in the field, and that the talk of doing so is mere bluff, intended to influence the inevitable negotiation of peace terms. It is also believed that the French government has utilized the financial lever to convey to Russia her view that it is the proper course to seek to arrange terms. The rumor persists that Russia has acquainted France with her willingness to discuss terms, but not on the basis of an indemnity, which. Russia contends, would ruin her prestige, claim ing that she would rather continue the war than submit to such a demand. Reports as to the progress of the loan ne gotiations are conflicting, It is asserted that the French syndicate has offered to take the loan at 90, instead of 95, per cent, the price at which the previous loan was taken, but that Russia has refused to consider anything under i) 4. It is also reported that Russia has threatened to remove Ihe cash balance of $100,000,000 stand ing in Paris as a means of aiding the French syndicate. Discussing peace prospects, "The Morning Post" to-day warns Great Britain to be pre pared for Russia making a determined effort to renew the combination with France and Ger many which compelled Japan, at the conclu sion of her war with China, to abandon Port Ar thur, in order in this case to influence the terms of settlement. "The Tlmes's" correspondent at St. Peters burg says thai tho defenders of the Fan River consisted of the whole of the Fourth Siberian Army Corps, belonging to General Linevitch's army, which suffered least on the retreat. "ONLY. POSSIBLE RESULT" Admiral Davis Comments on North Sea Findings— Criticises Rumors. Rear Admiral Charles H. Davis, of the United States Navy, accompanied by his aid. Lieutenant Brlcker, arrived last night on the Finland from Paris, where he has been acting as a member of the North Sea Commission. Admiral Davis spoke in the highest praise of the members of the North Sea commission and severely criticised the prema ture reports of the findings circulated in Ppria three days before the commission had reached, a decision. Ho said to a reporter: "It was reported in France that certain members of the commission had been instructed previous to the session of the commission. This was a nasty rumor, but when one realizes that France holds $200 000.000 of the Russian government bonds and is bound to Russia by a political alliance he can perhaps see a reason X or such orejudiced reports. The premature report of the commission findings was an absolute fake. Great Britain had all the facts and consequently won the case. Admiral Foumler Is a fine man. Vice-Admiral the Russian delegate, is a splendid fellow, exceed 1I ReKardi I ng n the a condit f ion t in othe0 the Far East. i Admiral Davis said that he saw no possibility of Russian success. "With the defeat of Kuropatkin. he said, "the almost total destruction of the navy and the internal dissensions, I can't possibly see how the Russians can win." . Admiral Davis said that he had received an in vitation from King Edward, through tho American Embassy but was unable to respond, as he was pressed for time. Ho will return to Washington to-day or to-morrow and make his report, and will as a>on as possible return to his command. CARE OF RUSSIAN PRISONERS.

Warsaw, March 15.— Reserves who were wait ing in the barracks at Wolkowsk, government of Grodno, formed a conspiracy to foment or ganized disturbances among the troops in order to rivoid being sent to Manchuria.

Immense Orders Placed in Minne apolis to Feed Prisoners. [BY TELEGRAPH TO THE TRIBUNE.] Minneapolis, March 15. — Japan has sent orders to this* city for immense quantities of flour, enough to supply the fifty thousand prisoners taken during the Moukden conflict. The orders began pouring in before the battle was in prog ress, and as the mills are fairly swamped. It is doubtful whether the demand can be supplied. A few days ago a company was asked for a price on fifty thousand sacks, which was quick ly followed by other inquiries, shipments to be made at stated periods between now and June 1. These shipments will aggregate for this one firm over two hundred thousand sacks. The Consolidated Milling Company sold twen ty thousand sacks for early delivery, and re fused another order of twenty thousand sacks for immediate shipment. The firm has several orders under consideration for delivery in April und May. The Washburn-Crosby Company has two mills grinding flour for the Japanese exclu sively at present, and before their orders are filled will send forward over one hundred thou sand sack.?. THE CLOSURE VOTED. Move to Hasten Proceedings on Supply Savagely Attacked. London, March Premier Balfour introduced the "guillotine" in the House of Commons this afternoon, with the object ol securing- the sanction ing of the estimates before March 31. In moving the closure of the proceedings on supply the Premier declared that it was necessary in order to secure the requisite votes before the close of the financial year. The step taken was for the credit of the House, and not to extricate the government from difficulty. Prolonged debates delayed busi ness and the closure was more in consonance with the dignity of the House than the suspension of the 12 o'clock rule, the vision of the bedraggled members of Parliament solus- home at 10 o'clock in the morning not being calculated to raise the reputation of the House of Commons. , Mr. Asqulth (Liberal) In a few caustic sentences moved the adjournment. He declared Mr. Balfour's motion was a parliamentary scandal, the greatest outrage ever offered by a "nominally" responsible minister to a "nominally" deliberative assembly. He accused the government of mismanagement ana the Premier of encroaching on the powers and privileges of the House, and said the motion marked an epoch in the degradation of the House of Commons from a deliberative to a dependent body and transformed it into a mere automatic: machine to register the will of the executive. The motion to adjourn was defeated by 2*; votes to 206. Mr. Redmond moved an amendment that -the House decline to sanction any proposals for further curtailing discussion of supply. The amend m. Nt was debated up to 7:20 o'clock, when Mr. KRli'our moved closure, which was carried, 249 to £13. Mr. Redmond's amendment was then defeated by a majority of 40. The debate on Mr. Balfour's "guillotine" motion will be resumed to-morrow. URGE BREAK WITH ROME. Deputies Ask for Speedy Separation of Church and. State. Paris, March 15. — The report of the committee of the Chamber of Deputies on the bill providing for the separation of church and state was dis tributed in the Chamber to-day. It presents the relations between the church and the govern ment since the earliest days, and says: We maintain that the sole possible solution for the interior difficulties growing out of the. regime of 'the Concordat is a loyal and com plete separation of church and state, particu larly under the democracy wherein the exist ing universal suffrage and sovereignty of the people make the continuation of an official re ligion such a defiance of logic and good sense that it seems astonishing that the French Re public continued such an equivocal regime dur ing the last thirty-four years. The report says it is useless to put off the separation until after the popular election, as such a delay would be advantageous to Rome and dangerous to France. Moreover, a popular election upon the subject would stir up a cleri cal agitation. The report adds: In passing this law Parliament accords the state its just due and at the same time accords the church wnat it has the right to expect, namely, full liberty to organize, live and de velop according to Us means, without any re striction save respect for the laws and public order. MRS. CHADWICK VISITED HOME Selected Wearing Apparel in Excess of Amount Declared Exempt. Cleveland, March Mrs. Chadwick. accompa nied by two deputy United States marshals, left the county jail to-day in a closed carriage, and was driven to her home. With the exception of personal effects to the value of $500, exempt from the claims of creditors, all of the furnishings and other personal property In the house will be sold at public auction by Trustee Looser next Friday. Mrs. Chadwick was granted permission by Judge Tayler. of the Federal Court, to visit her home to day, to decide upon what property she would re tain. It was evidently a trying ordeal for the convicted woman. Immediately upon entering the sumptuously furnished residence she broke down and wept bitterly. It was her first visit to the house since last November, soon after which she left for New-York, where la the following month she was arrested. "When Mrs. Chadwick had finally regained her composure she began a tour of the rfouse, selecting such articles as she desired to keep. Mrs. Chad wick selected between *4.000 and $5,000 worth of personal property, which she claimed was exempt inder the statute. Almost all of this was wearing apparel, and Nathan Loeaer. trustee In bank ruptcy, said that he would protest each and every selection. Mr. Loeser said: Mrs. Chadwick selected enough clothing for twenty-five women, which. in view of tne way she has squandered her creditors' money, I consider very bad taste. Before leaving the house Mrs. Chadwick again broke down and gave way to tears. She was al lowed live minutes with her husband, who only for a moment showed signs of affection or feeling for her. Replying to her statement that she knew that he was absolutely Innocent of any charges agalnut him. Dr. Chadwick Bald: "I hope you will be able to disprove the charges against you." When tho time came, for her departure Mrs Chadwick was escorted to the carriage and re turned to the Jail. A small crowd had collected at the driveway to see her pjusa, but Uia curu.ln* lv the carriage were down. :.,• : • . .... THE PROTOCOL GOHSuYEfu Continued from tint pas*- would change the principle involved in the treaty, and that it was idle for the Republicans to hope for aid from their side of the chamber. The resolution, nevertheless, remains undis posed of. and there was talk among Republican leaders late in the day of adopting it and putting it to a test as a vote getter. Tho debate to-day waa uniformly unmterflst ing in spite of the fact that it was broken up by Questions from both sides of the chamber. As in the preceding discussions, party lines were drawn. Tha Republicans supported the treaty and the Democrats opposed it. Among those who sroke for the treaty were Senators bpooner. Heyburn. Platt of Connecticut, and Fulton, while those opposed to it were Senators McCreary. Morgan. Culberson, Newlands. Mallory. Clay Senator Spooner advocated ratification, mainly en the ground that Santo Domingo is In tne pathway between the United States and Porto Rico, that the Dominican government had asked the United States to take charge, and that Dy so doing this government could Insure peace in an «sbind which is a close neighbor to Amer ican territory. He put It on the grounds of hu manity. ■■_ _, Opposition to the treaty was expressed by Sen ator Newlands. who, however, said that he was an expansionist, but was not wholly satisfied with the conditions in Santo Domingo, and thought there should be an Inquiry before the treaty was adopted. He said the plan for a commission might include also an Inquiry with a view to annexation of the Island. Even the most sanguine Republicans can see no way of getting nearer than within three votes of ratification. CULLOM iLND TELLER CLASH. Colorado Senator Introduces Dominican Res olution of Inquiry. Washington, March 15.— When the Senate met to-day there was an interesting flurry over Do minican affairs. Mr. Teller Introduced a resolution of Inquiry asking the State Department for all informa tion concerning relations with the Dominican government between July 1, 1904. and March 1. 1905. The reading of the resolution had scarcely be gun when Mr. Cullom objected to further read ing, saying that the matter pertained to execu tive session business, and should not be read in open session. "The Senator cannot take me off the floor," declared Mr. Teller. "I deny the right of the Senator to interrupt the reading of the resolu tion." Mr. Cullom maintained that he had a right to Inquire Into the nature of the resolution to ascertain if it belonged to open session or to executive business. "You cannot prevent the reading of the reso lution," asserted Mr. Teller, warmly. Mr. Kean suggested to Mr. Cullom that he move to proceed to the consideration of execu tive business, but Mr. Teller had the floor, and was still insisting that his resolution should be read. "Commence at the beginning and read It all." directed Mr. Teller, and the clerk did so. The resolution follows: Resolved, That the Secretary of State is here by directed to send to the Senate for use in executive sessions copies of the instructions given to Commodore Dillingham and Minister Dawson, or either of them, regarding Dominican affairs, and copies of all correspondence and telegrams relating to Dominican affairs, or re lating to any proposed agreement, protocol or treaty between the United States and San Do mingo, from July 1. lUO4, to March 1. 1905. "I object to its present consideration," said Mr. Cullom, promptly. "That is the right of the Senator," said Mr. Teller. "I wanted this resolution to go on the public records. The Information asked may be sent to the Senate for use in executive session if the President so desires. It is a part of the public records, and not a part of the secret archives of the government. I know that any Senator or Representative can have access to it, but I want it for the use of the Senate." The Senate at 12:10 went into executive ses sion, and at 5:20 p. m. adjourned until noon to morrow. ITALIAN CRUISER AT SANTO DOMINGO. Washington, March 15.— The State Department Is informed that the Italian cruiser Calabria arrived at Santo Domingo City yesterday. AWAIT BOSTON DOCTOR. Body of 11. R. Reed Still Here- Tablets Harmless. An investigation waa conducted yesterday into the death of Henry R. Reed, the wealthy Boston merchant who waa found dead under peculiar cir cumstances in the Grand Union Hotel on Tuesday. No trace of the woman who was with Mr. Reed at the hotel has been gained by the police, and future action now depends on Coroner Brown. Dr. O'Hanlon. coroners' physician, made a. chemi cal analysis of the tablets found In Reed's room, and says they contained only drugs used for heart trouble. Coroner Brown said he nad sent for I>r. Joseph C. S ted man, of No. 61 Pond-st.. Jamaica Plains, or any other specialist who had attended Reed. Until they coma he will take no positive action. Notice was received at the establishment of tha Stephen Merritt Burial Company, where the body Is, in the afternoon from the New- York repre sentatives of Mr. Reed's family that it had been decided to comply with Coroner Brown's wishes, and to have Mr. Reed's physician come here from Boston and make sworn statements as to tha character of Mr. Reed's illness. Thus an autopsy will be avoided. SIAX TO GAMBLE NO MORE. Asks United States and Other Nations to Help Fill Its Depleted Treasury. The United States will be asked by tho Klnsr of Slam to help him put a stop to legalized gambling in his country, according to advices received yester day by the Rsv. Dr. Arthur J. Brown, secretary of the Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions. .Simi lar requests are to go to England and other Chris tian nations. He wants permission to raise slight ly the import dues, that a part of the revenue ac cruing: from the gambling concessions may be re placed. Slam Is an extra-territorial country, with Import dues regulated by treaty with America and the European nations, so they cannot be chanced without their consent. The Rev. Dr. Brown explained that gambling was the national vice of 31am. Every village had Its gambling- house, licensed by the government. Bang kok, tho capital, and other largo towns have many gambling places,- operated under official patronage. The King, according to Dr. Brown, is to abolish most of the gambling places in April. He hopes to meet the loss of the gambling license fee's by an increase of the land tax. but the gambling revenue Is too large to bo covered in this way, so he wants to increase the import duties anil aekt* the Chris tian- nation* for their co-oceration. t iii ».I» .I i . to COnB a COLD in one DAT Take Laxative llro.no Quinine Tablets.
