Text of Final Reply to the Javanese Demands in 1904. Paris. March 28.— The Associated Press is in a posit^ai to complete the diplomatic history of the Rufso-Japanese relations resulting in tho Tvar by giving th? text of Russia's final reply to Japan, dated February 3. 19<>4. which has never before been published. Baron do Rosen, former Russian Minister to Japan, did not have an opportunity to present the note to Baron Ko mura, the Japanese Foreign Minister, as it was not delivered to the Russian representative until February 7. the day after he had been in formed of the rupture. Russia has alleged that the Japanese government, having decided to break off negotiations and begin hostilities, de liberately, held up the message at Tokio until M. Ku'-lno, the former Japanese Minister at St. Petersburg, could deliver the instructions sent to him on February: 5 to sever diplomatic rela tions. Japan contended that the contents of the reply having been substantially comrr'.ui rated by the Foreign Minister. Count Lamsdorff, to M. Kurino, and not being acceptable on the main issue, it was useless for Japan to wait any longer. The text of the propositions follows: First— A mutual engagement to respect the in dependence and territorial integrity of Corea. Second — An engagement on the part of Russia not to impede the commercial or industrial un dertakings of Japan in Corea or oppose her measures for safeguarding such interests. Third— Recognition by Russia of Japan's pre ponderating interests in Corea. and her right to offer advice and assistance tending to the im provement of the administration of Corea. Fourth — A mutual obligation not to use any part of Corean territory for strategic purposes or to undertake on the coasts of Corea any military works which menace free navigation of the Corean Straits. Fiftlwßeeognition by Russia of Japan's right to send troops to Corea in accordance with the preceding articles for the suppression of insur rections and disorders calculated to create inter national complications. Sixth — An engagement by Russia to respect the rights and privileges acquired by Japan as well as other powers in Manchuria through treaties with China, Japan to recognize Man churia and the littoral as beyond her sphere of interest. Seventh— A mutual agreement not to impede the Junction of the Corean and Eastern China railroads when they have reached the Yalu River. Eighth — That this agreement supplant all pre vious agreements between Russia and Japan respecting Corea. Ninth— The desirability if possible of creating a neutral zone in Corea. A comparison of the above and preceding ex changes, all of which heretofore have been printed fully, confirms the fact that Russia from the first to the last insisted that it waa incon sistent with her dignity to include in a special treaty with Japan an obligation to respect the territorial integrity of China in Manchuria, reit erating in the instructions sent to Baron de Rosen, which were accompanied by a note of explanation to Japan, that Russia's position in Manchuria concerned first China, and then all the other powers having commercial Interests there, and again pointing out the declarations already made by Russia to foreign Cabinets of her intention, so long as the occupation of Man churia continued, to recognize the sovereignty of China and the binding force of the treaties con tracted by the powers with the Peking gov ernment. With the exception of a rearrangement and some slight verbal changes, the first five articles are Identical with those of Russia's original re ply of October 3, 1903. Russia made three con cessions in the final note, as follows: First — The withdrawal of the provision in the Russian note of January 6, 1904, declining to recognize the settlement rights in Manchuria ac quired under treaties with China— a point on which Japan laid great stress. These rights Russia alleged were acquired by Japan under rover of treaties negotiated by the United States. Second— Recedence from insistence upon the proposition for a neutral zone in Northern Corea, but again putting forward its desirability Third— Acceptance of the stipulation in Ar ticle 3 of Japan's original propositions regard ing the juncture of the Corean and Manchurian railroads. Russia refused First— To Include in the treaty an obligation to respect the territorial integrity of Manchuria. Second— To withdraw the inhibition against using Corean territory for strategic purposes. The note is held to prove that Russia hoped to prolong the negotiations. RUSSIAN FINANCES. British Press Charged with Attempt to Ruin Nations Credit. London, March 28.— M. Routkowsky. the Rus sian financial agent in London, has sent a long letter to the London newspapers protesting vig orously against what he calls the deliberate campaign carried on In the last three years, not only by the British press, but also through or gans connected with the British press in Amer ica and France to damage Russian credit by predicting insolvency and repudiation. The let ter says: Millions of families in Europe have invested the savings of a lifetime in Russian securities and woruld be ruined by the sale of the bonds in a panic. It is criminal to attempt to ruin such people by misstatements and misrepre sentations, and in an Individual case any court of law would award damages to the sufferers. M. Routkowsky proceeds to deny that Russian budgets are in a chronic state of deficit. On the contrary, he says, the surplus of ordinary income over expenditure in the last ten years aggregated $900,000,000. which has been spent, not unproductively, but mostly for the purchase and construction of new railways and the con version of high interest debts. He adds: It is not true that the revenues of the rail roads do. not cover the working expenses. On the contrary, the revenues not only cover ex penses, but also meet all fixed charges, and, with the development of new country, will be still more productive. M. Routkowsky then gives details of the State debt, contending that the British national debt requires much larger annual expenses for in terest and sinking fund in proportion to the annual national income than does the Russian national debt, and that there is nothing to alarm Russian investors in view of the country's prac tically unlimited resources. In conclusion M. Routkowsky declares his con viction that public opinion does not approve of the campaign which, he asserts, has been carried on from political motives. NEW JAPANESE LOAN.

BRITAIN'S NEED OF ARMY. No Reduction Possible, Says the Secretary for War. London. March 28.— 1n the House of Commons to-day the Secretary for "War. H. O. Arnold- Forster, made his annual statement. He said that the regular army could not be reduced, be cause Great Britain was the only country in the world which was obliged to maintain an army on a war footing in times of peace. The danger of an invasion was not re.J. The principal duty of the British army was to fight across the seas and defend frontiers. They must eliminate the idea of "competition" with the great military countries of the world, and should apply their whole attention merely to supplying an army capable of defending the frontiers. The lesson of the Russo-Japanese War was that quality and not quantity produced success in modern warfare. Mr. Arnold-Forster outlined the changes made and contemplated, and said It gave him great pleasure to be able to say that the Dominion of Canada had undertaken from a certain date to bear the cost of the guardianship of the great imperial fortresses situated in that country. The War Secretary added that it would take seven years to make an impression on the great problem of army reorganization. What, then, could be expected in seven months? He urged the House to deal with the question from a patriotic and not from a party or political stand point. CENSURE BALFOUR'S FISCAL POLICY. Government Refuses to Oppose Motion by Mr. Walton.

The Opposition had hoped that in view of the fact that this was a vote of censure the govern ment would take up the challenge and would not adhere to its declared intention of ignoring fiscal resolutions of private members, but Mr. Balfour declined to be drawn out, and the Opposition was driven to address denunciatory speeches to empty benches, and reap the indirect Benefit of the effect of the government's refusal to right when chal lenged. Mr. Walton's motion was carried without a di vision, in reply to an inquiry by Sir Henry Camp bell- Bannerman, the Speaker said the motion would be recorded as carried norn con. HEAT HERE EARLY.

LEE TO LEGISLATURE. Talks to Both Houses on Virginia's Tercentennial. Trenton, N. J., March 28 (Special).— After a brief morning sc-ssion, at which several bills of local interest were considered, the House went into committee of the whole to listen to an address by General Fitzhugh Lee. president of the Jamestown (Va.) Tercentennial Exposition. Mr. Colby presided. General Lac was heartily applauded as he came from the office of State Treasurer Briggs, where he had held a brief re ception, and he and Major Carl Lentz had fought the battles of the Civil War over again. He was again applauded as he entered the Assembly Chamber. Mr. Colby extended a wel come to the visitor on behalf of the House, the State of New-Jersey and a united country. General Lee said in part that he was not un familiar with the splendid record made by New- Jersey In the Revolutionary War, when her sons and the sons of Virginia marched under the same flag. His own relatives, he said, were in New-Jersey in those trying days. His father, the son of "Light Horse Harry" Lee, was a Jerseyman, having been born in Camden. He did not forget that the people of New-Jersey and those of Virginia had met again, this time with guns pointed at each other's breasts. Tho people of the South had been taught to believe in the doctrine of State rights, and. therefore, believed they were right In IS6I. Jerseymen had been taught a different doctrine, but If they had been in the South they would have done as nine-tenths of the Southerners did, for they believed the State was supreme and that their first loyalty waa to the State. If he had been a Jerseyman he would have gone to the South and helped to whip the rebels into submission. Now we had one flag and one country, ami were all interested in making our country what our forefathers intended it to be, the greatest country under the sun. General Lee then eulogized McClellan, Kearny and Kilpatrick. paying a glowing tribute to Kearny, who, he said, was one of the great Northern generals. He then spoke of the ter centennial to be held at Hampton Roads. Va., and thanked New-Jersey for making an appro priation of $25,000 for a State building at the celebration. He promised that Virginia, so rich in history and historical traditions, would ex tend a sincere welcome to every Jerseyman who came to the exposition at Hampton Roads, which would seek to commemorate one of the principal events in American history — the founding of the first English speaking settlement in America. General Lee was accompanied by the secre tary of the exposition company and the general counsel, T. J. Wool. The visitors dined with Governor Stokes and State Treasurer Briggs. SEEK HARLEM FIREBUGS.

Says He Will Seek Its Sources and Punish Guilty Persons. Isaac A. Hoper. Superintendent of Buildings in Manhattan, declared yesterday that he was "Johnny on the spot." "Whenever I am in town I am always on the Job," he said. "After thinking over the recent collapse of buildings. I am resolved to begin a rigid investigation, which will last two or three weeks. I am more convinced than ever that there is graft in tho department." "Is this graft rampant?" he was asked. "Well, I don't know about that, but one of my first objects will be to ferret out tho sources and flnd the guiity parties and punish them. No polit ical pull will aid them. I intend to first find out what building inspectors are derelict in their duty. "I do not believe any one blames me for the de fects. No department head was ever more faithful to his duties thati I am. I am Johnny on the spot." so to speak. I am going to wait to see what the public thinks of mo by the rp<-«»i>tion of the verdict of the special committee appointed by Mr. Ahearn.

[BT TELEQRAPH TO THE TRIBUNE.] Baltimore, March 28.— Forty "bluecoats" of the Northern Police District were put to flight this afternoon by a frisky young bull, while drilling in Hunting lcn-ave. The company of Baltimore's "finest" was marching in their best style when the bull came charging down on them. One patrolman had just drawn a red bandanna, at sight of which the bull made a dash through the bluecoats' lines. Although Lieutenant Dempsey shouted: "Men, stand to your colors!" there was a wild scamper for vestibules and fences. The lieutenant stood his ground for a moment, but when the beast made for him he gave it a lively race to a big oak tree. "Suppose such a thing happened on May 1.1, the date for the annual police parade," said the lieutenant, after the bull had been captured. "Why, the whole company would have been dis missed from the force for cowardice." CALLS REED'S REPORT "FRENZIED." General Davis Forwards Sanitary Report Dis crediting Attack. Washington.
