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
Seventh— A mutual agreement not to impede
the Junction of the Corean and Eastern China
railroads when they have reached the Yalu
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
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
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.
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.

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
Government Refuses to Oppose Motion by
Mr. Walton.
London. March 28— In the House of Commons
to-night a vote of censure of Premier Balfour's
fiscal policy was unanimously carried, Ministerial
ists abstaining from voting.
The session was a repetition of the session of
March 22. The Ministerial benches to-night were
entirely deserted, and only about a dozen Union
ists, principally free traders, were present when
Mr. Walton (Liberal; moved a resolution as follows:
In view of the declaration made by the Prime
Minister, this House thinks it necessary to record
its condemnation of his policy of fiscal retaliation.
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
Mr. Walton's motion was carried without a di

Baptht Missionaries Receive It at
Meeting Yesterday.
The American Baptist Missionary Union,
through its officers and committees, spent the
greater part of yesterday and last night devising
means of raising an endowment fund of $500,
000 for its work in foreign lands. It was an
nounced that $60,000 was pledged at the after
noon meeting. The day began with a meeting

place in the evening.
Only one giver's name was made public — that

Talks to Both Houses on Virginia's
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.

"Well, I don't know about that, but one of my
first objects will be to ferret out tho sources and

what building inspectors are derelict in their duty.

by Federal Grand Jnrif.
Louisville, M.-in'h L'S.— The Federal Grand Jury
to-day indicted the city of Louisville an<l I. X.
Vetter, superintendent of NM Workhouse, for
alleged violations of the federal statutes against
peonage. The city of Louisville is indicted on
four counts, charging holding under conditions

The Indictment against Mr. Vetter was re
turned against him in his official capacity only,

The negroes mentioned in the indictments are
federal witnesses in the election cases against
seven police officers and others whose trials are
set for May 9. Both were arrested on alleged
trivial charges, fined and placed under bonds to
keep the peace. They have already worked out
their fines at the statutory rate of $1 a day.

Forty Men at Drill Take Refuge Wherever
It Can Be Found.
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."
General Davis Forwards Sanitary Report Dis
crediting Attack.
Washington. March 2S.— The following cable mes
sage from Panama was made public at the War
Department to-day :
Secretary of War, Washington:
The following is the substance of the report of
Colonel William C. Gorgas, medical corps, U. 9. a..
chief sanitary inspector, lor the month of Febru
ary. litO6:
Sick in hospitals, 151; the entire force on the rolls
for the month of February, 7.700; percentage of sick
in hospitul therefore less taan 2 per cent; number
of deaths, !>, which is equivalent to a rate of 14 per
thousand per annum.
The French begar. work in 1881, during which
yeur their entire force averaged 928. and their
deaths in the Ancon hospital only were 72, or at
the rate of 67 per thousand per annum, nearly flvo
tlm«,-s the American rat*;.
The deaths from yeliow fever in the Ancon Hos
pital only during the year 1881 were 25. an aver
age force of 928, while the deaths from yellow
fever during the last ten months In a force aver
aging 3,500 were only 6. Th<- Frtnch statistics only
relate to the Ancon hospital. If all deaths among
the employes under the French during that time
along the entire line were included the mortality
would be much higher. The last case of yellow
fever to occur in Panama was on March 8, and the
last case from Colon on March 18. The totu. num
ber of cases among the entire population on the
Isthmus during January was 19; during February.
13, and during March, to date of this cable. 9. The
present sanitary force consists of more than one
thousand employes, costing more than $25,000
Tills report, together with Colonel Gorgas's letter
of February 1, sent you February 3. is in my opin
ion, sufficient reply to Dr. Reed's "frenzied" re
port. DAVIS.
