Gloomy forebodings. however. may be prema t_r e at this juiK-ture. as everything indicates the plenipotentiaries on both sides are slncerely de sirous of concludlng a treaty of peace.

Baron Komura was embarrassed and offered to stnd back to the hotel for hls commission, but M.

C__-__D___-.llg_U- HO OBSTACLE. later _n the afternoon. however. copies of the rTedentials were Informally exchanged. In order ?hat they mlght be examine . hefore the meeting to-morrow. It is known thnt the credentials differ allghtly. In exae'ly v.hat respect could r.ot be ascertalned to-nlght. but lt ls aaaartai that the dlfferenee Is not essentlal and consti tutes no obstaele to the offlclal opening of the negotiattona. Indeed. the President was offlcially Infonned to-cight that the credentials were full, ample and satlsfaetory to both sides. To avoid delay and glee the plenipotentiaries euid the deiegates tlme for consultatlon between sessions it has been arranged that luneheon wlll be served st the navy yard. and the envoys on leaving their quarters in the morning wlll not retuxn untll the afternoon session adjourns. Three secretarles for each side wlll be ln at? tendanee to draw up the protocols of the meet **m, whlch will be -written in both Engllsh and French. The offlclal verslons of to-day's meetlng glven OOt by each side descrlbed lt as "satisfactory," and other accounts indicate that while every? thing passed off amlcably. considerable reserve waj_ cispiayed on both sides. Baron Komura, whom M. Wltte had -met ln St. Petersburg when the former served as Japanese Minister there, w__s pleasantly greeted by the chlef Russian er.voy in French. but the baron was obllged to 6hake hls head and turn to hls secretary. Mr. Honda, who explalned that Baron Komura had forgocten tha llttle Fre-iah he knew while ln St. Petersburg. Whlle the Russian plenipotentiaries expect the Japanese to pre*er.t their terms immediately after the offlclal exchange of credentials to rnorrm., t.hey admit they are in the dark. Baron Komura and his colleagues decline to glve any Intimation of their course of procedure. Pursu ing the T-Lctics whlch they have constantly fol? lowed in aU thelr diplomatic ar.d military operations, they are carefully guarding all theii* plans regardlng the present meeting. There uras some disposltlon to-day to attribute Baron Komura s forgetfulnoss ln not brlnglng hls credentials to the meeting to a desire to spar for time, and for that reason some doubt was expressed whether the Japanese would show their hand to-morrow, '.-ut the Russian envoys do not question Baron Komura's good faith. and frankly say it was due to a misunderstandlng. This evenlng the amenities were observed by a general exchange of cards, M. Witte. Baron Roeen and their suite sending theirs through the hotel offlce, while the cards of the Jap.nese were left at the doors of the membera of the Russian mission by a little Japanese messenger boy. Commander Winslow and Captain Glnbons elso made their offlcial 4-alls on the two mlssions late this afternoon. The Japanese and the Rus? sian newspaper correspondems have broken the Ke and have begun to fraternize. It is perhaps signiflcant that the correspondents on both sides are sending to their respective homes dlspatches c>f anything but an opTiinisrle characrer. In the opinion of the Russians the Emperor's manifesto promulgating the National Assembly project will materi. lly strengthen the position of the Russian envoys by rettevtng the internal situation. Because the Russians like to smoke whiie at the table, the entire Russian mission to-night dined in their apartments, a practice which they have decided to continue hereafter. DISCUSSIXG PEACE TERMS. A Japanese Tells What Promlnent Americans Consider Reasonabie. , Frcm m Special 4~orre_pond?>nt of The Tribune.) Portsmouth, N. H.. Auy. 9.? Apropos of Japan's terms, J. K. Matsuma, a member of the Japaneae Parliament, said to The Tribune cor? respondent thls evening: Here is something that sheds light on the question of what are reasonabie terms. 1 came to .his couniry a couple of months ago. In that Bma I have met a number of Senatr.rs and Rep? resentatives in Congress, bankers and other per sor.s of promlnenoe and standing in San Fran? clsco. Chicago, New-York and elsewhere. 1 have made it a point to ask of each one what he thought would be reasonabie terms for Japan to demand. and I ha.e made a memorandum of the result of each convrrsation. On comparing my notea I found that these eminent Americans dif? fer- ,i on minor polnta, bat that there was abso lutc unanimiiy 011 aeven propositions. These are the seven demanda whlch were put forward as i.a'nle ly every one of these Americans: Flre.? Vti indemnity. Tho figure generally euggeafted was tl_0O8,006.a0?, Second?The oeaaaVsn of Saghalien. Third?The cession of the Liao-Tung Penin su'.a Fourth?Delivery to Japan of the railway in Manchuria. Fifth?Th-> transformation of Vladlvostok into a free port. Sixih -A Japanese protectorate over Corea. Seventh ?The apaa door ln Manchuria. These are the demands which appear reason? abie to an influential and intelligem class of Americans. as I have deznonstrated beyond doubt. people ln Japan have no idea whatever of humiiiatlng Russia, and will ask nothlng but what ls reasonabie.

Baron Komura and Mr. Takahira ap? peared first, and passed dlrectly down the gravel path to the navy yard landlng, where a launch was in waiting to take them to Neweastle. The Russian commissioners followed the Japanese a moment later, taklng a seeond launch for the trip to the hotel. On their arrivai they entered by a prlvat* doorway. One of the plenipotentiaries soon after they returned to Neweastle said: "You car. say that this mornlng's meeting was entirely satisfaetory. so far as it went. Our next meeting wlll be held to-morrow mornlng. Pro? vlded all goes well, we will get down to busi? ness then. Terms were not discussed at to day's meeting." ? STATEMENTS OF ENVOYS.

Aug. 9?The yeliow fever situa? tion In New-Orleans to-night fails to show any Improvement, the only eneouraging phase of tne situation being that of the sixty-four new cases practically all were located ln the lower part of the city. The death of Archblshop Chapelle. the most sensational occurrence of the day, has necessarlly Increased the alarm feit by tho people of thls clty. He ls the flrst promlnent man who has become a vlctlm of the dread disease, and they reallze that now none are safe. The T'nited States Marlne Hospital authorities have taken absolute charge to-day and are re organlztng the various departments which have been handling the situation up to the present time. Three physicians arrived this morning and ten more are expected late to-night. Dr. J. H. Whlte, who is to be in charge of the work here, says that he ls unabie to make any deflntte statement about the length of tlme lt will take to stamp out the disease. His first step was to warn all doctors of the clty that all cases of either yeliow fever or suspicious fever must be reported Immediately, or the law rela Tlve ro the fallure to report such cases wlll be enforced. Practically all the cases to-day were among the Italians of the lower classes. One case was reDorted from the Grunewald Hotel. one of the largest in the city. It was that of a young man who has lived here all his life and who had rooms at the hotel.

BROOKLYN S FEVER EPIDEMICS. Yeliow Jack Has Visited There Four Times in the Last Century. While modern scientific precautions render the introduction of yeliow fever into this clty so re mote a possibility that such a thing as an epidemic of the dread disease here would be considered al? most an impossibility. it may be interesting to many to learn that Kings County. now coincident with the Borough of Brooklyn, has had four epi demlcs of yeliow fever ln the last century. The last occurred in 1%6. and is thought to have been caused by infected materlal thrown Into the bay from fever-stricken ships, which stretched almost across the Narrows at Quarantine. The ravages of the disease were confined prlncipally to Bay Ridge, Fort Hamiiton and what is now known as Bath Beach. The death rate was high. thirty-nlne of the seventy-four victims dying. Among them were Dr. J. E. Dubois and Dr. John L. Crane. well known phvslcians of New-L'trecht. The flrst recorded epidemic of yeliow fever in Kings Countv started ln August, 1S04.

Rye bread. which was selllng before the strike at two and one half cents a pound, was eight cents a pound, and hard to get at the money. At Pyocken Polski's union restaurant. at No. 87 Attorney-st.. there was no bread and there was no buslness done all day. Grooeries were In the same plight. and biscuits which were on the shelves for months went off like hot cakes. . The most serious riot of the afternoon took j place at the bakery of Joseph Bock. No. 138 Orchard-st. Book. who is treasurer of the hoss bakers' association. was away at the time and his assistants barrieaded the place. Forty strik? ers tried to storm the cellars in order to get the empioyes on strike, but Patrolman Sofsky. of the Eldridge-st. station. came along on a run and captured a rlngleader. using his club freely. By this tlme the street was bloeked with peo? ple. among whom were a number of women. Sofsky had to fight his way to the station and once was borne down by the erowd. A number of reserves then arrived under Captain Murtha. ivielding their clubs, and a furious fight took place before the erowd was dispersed. Patrol? man Benjamin Stern received an ugly cut on the head from a flying ptece of rock. Three men ln all were arrested and discharged with a repri mand ln Essex Market court later, Magistrate _ Moss considering the evidence not sufficient to justlfy a fine. Another fight took place at Abraham Walde stricken's bakery, No. 1-V) Allen-st.. where a number of strikers dragged out barrels of flour and scattered their contents in the street. An attempt was made by the Jersey Model Bakery of Hoboken to deliver bread at a shop ln Clinton-st. When two wagons filled with the bread appeared a erowd _?____?*. to rise out of the ground, assailing the wagons with bricks and other misslles. A number of police charged the erowd and took the wagons to the Dollee station. Israel Relsler. a grocer, of No. 108 Clinton-st.. had his place besieged with an angry throng of strikers when an attempt was made to deliver kosher bread to him. The place is nearly opposite Great Central Palace. the headquarters of the stukers, out of which the strikers poured ln hundreds. They cut the harness of the horses, but reserves from the Union Market and Delancey-st. stations ap? peared and scattered the rioters. WOMEN IN THE MOBS. There was a disposition on the part of the strikers to get women into the mobs. with tho object of working publie sentiment if women were clubbed. Tho pollce. seeing this, were careful not to make too indiscriminate a use of thelr sticks. Five women upset a pushcart loaded with bread at Orchard and Stanton sts.. trampling the loaves into the mud. A number of women also snatched a basket from a man who was deliverlng bread at Stanton and Ridge sts. The strikers sent committees around on every pretext. One committee was sent to Phila? delphia to prevent kosher bread from belng sent from that clty to New-York. Another commit? tee was sent to Jersey City and Hoboken with the same object. A meetlng of the Hebrew Boss Bakers' As? sociation. which has been formed since the strike began. was held yesterday afternoon at N Broome-st, and the boss bakers had a n4ii_> tlme. The meeting was behind closed doors, but the wrangling could be heard outside. A schedule of demands from the strikers had been submltted. based on recognition of the union. After th** meetlng the followlng statement was made: "We are ready to pay the wages demanded. but wlll on no aecount re4-ognlze the union or sign any agreement. Further, we can consider no negotiatlons wlth walklng deiegates or the strike leader. Samuel Kurtz. Our bakeries are closed. We can get men, but they are afrald to go to work. and we are not asklnar our men who did not strike to work for fear of provklng riots." The employers also said that Kurtz came from Provldence and never appeare4l except when there was a strike. They made a number of vague charges agalnst strike leaders. but were ?_ The Short U ay tc I j^ , Philadelphia!^ ?aaaa------ is via the .
