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

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
Fourth?Delivery to Japan of the railway in
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
people ln Japan have no idea whatever of
humiiiatlng Russia, and will ask nothlng but
what ls reasonabie.
But Satisfactory So Far as It Went,
an Envoy Says.
Portsmouth N. H . Aug. 9?The day of the
first meetlng at the Russian and Swemneee p^ace
plenipotentiariefc at the navy yard here began
dellghtfully so far as weather conditions were
conoemed. The sun rose in a dear sky, and,
although the?*e v._b a prospeet of the usual heat
of Aucust, there also was promlse of rellef ln
the cool ocAnn breeze cominr.
The mcaabera of both ihe Russian and Jap?
anese mls.ions were early about the hotel, and.

with the ex-eption of M. Witte and Baron
Rosen, break fasted ln the main dining room.
As m veral of the Russians were comlng out of
the dinlng room they met iwo of the Japanese
entering. They exchanged profound bows. but
dld not shake hands. There were mnny people
| on the veranda of the hotel to witness
the departure of the envoys for the navy yard,
a number having taken places before the break?
fast hour.
Baron Komura and Mr. Takahira and Secre?
tary Adachi left the Hotel VVcnt worth by auto?
mobile for the navy yard at 9:5*5 o*clock. They
were greeted on the veranda by Asslstant Secre?
tary Peirce and Governor MeLane. M. Witte and
Baron Rosen rteparted shortly afterward in an?
other automobile, using a secondary entrance,
which leads to their apartments.
It took about haif an hour to cover the six
miles from the hotel to the navy yard, and lt was
10:30 o'elock when the envoys arrived at the
naval stores building, Where their meeting was
to tafce place. At the navy yard the care/ul ar?
rangements made by Rear Admlral Mead, the
commandant. for excluding all persons not con?
nected with the peace proceedlngs operated per?
fectly. every outslder being stopped at the en?
trance of the yard.
Shortly after the plenipotentiaries entered the
conference room ii was learned that M. Witte
and Baron Komura exchange compliments, the
latter. however. using Mr. Honda as interpro
ter. as neither Baron Komura nor Mr. Takahira
is very familiar with French, while M. Witte,
although understanding English, cannot speak
lt. Immediately after this formality the en?
voys proceeded to businesja.
Shortly after noon the envoys came out of the
building, indicating that to-day's meeting had
ended. 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."

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. Seventeen
persons were stricken and six died. Five years

cars came together.
Few persons in either car escaped injury ln
some way. The faces of some were torn, others
fainted. and still others had strained wrists or
dislocated joints.
The point where the collision oceurred is fully
two miles from the Coney Island Hospital. and
conveyances of all sorts had to be used to take
the injured to the hospital. It was said last

the desertlng of the headquarters. lt had been
announeed that a request had been sent to the
Internatlonal Union in Chlcago for the ca lins
out of the journeymen and the English-speaklng
bakers. It was not expected that there would
be any word received from Chicago until to-day.
Reports that the bosses were attempting ta
man thelr shops with non-union labor led to the
sending out of plckets from the strike head?
quarters ln bunches of ten and twelve. The>
not onlv permeated the East Side. but also pene
trated io Harlem and The Bronx. with orders to
stop aU work.
Riots all over the East Side were the chief
characteristic of the strike yesterday. "Strong
arm men." the employers say. have been
brought here from outside by the strikers to
start the riots. The strikers assert that thugs
have been engaged by the employers.
Meantlme. the kosher bread famine had be?
come acute. Lunchrooms lay idle and the He?
brew groeers could not get any bread to seli.
as lt was unsafe to recelve any. The strike
leaders' evident intention was to starve out the
people in the hope of bringing matters ta a
climax. The bread famine was principally con
fined to the district between Hester and Hous
ton sts. as far as Avenue C. 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.
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
"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
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
