H., Aug. 11.?Millions of mosquitoes and intolerable heat confront the pienipotentiaries of Russia an.i Japan and their sultes. Throughout the day there has boen m> relief from the heat and huniidity. Just ai dark a listless. w-trm rain set in. Its only effect was to drive swarms of BMMNHlttoea into ths hotel, and the K"csts ha'l either to bar them? selves in thelr rooms or walk, stanip and beat the mosquitoes off. No one has felt the heat more than has Si. Witte. lle is a heavy man of large stature and not accustomed t" great heat in summer. He worked in his rooms throughout the day In neg ligee, and still was dremhrd wlth perspiration. When the final roviaton of rhe Fn-nch and Eng? lish texts of the Ruaaian reply to the Japanesf terms had been Ihade, shortly after 4 o'ciock. h and Baron Rooen entered their automobile and were off for a spln of nearly two hours along thr ahore roads. This was tbe only recrt ation for the Russians. The Japanese pienipotentiaries did not lndulge themselves even to the extent of a drive. Throughout the evening th.- rain .-ontinued, but without the usual refrcshing effect of a sum? mer shower. Kxtreme preolSlon of etiquette ls observed by the large corps of Japanese c<rr> spondents and those who have come over from Europe. Whenevr two Japanese correspondenta meet, no matter if for the tifteenth time the same day, each wil! stop short before the other and ex ? a'.- a bow whlch for mechanlcal preciolon and ala< rity of movement is ideal. The Japan? ese with the peace mission exhibit great cordi allty, especially toward the Americans. and their enterprlse in phtcing themselves in positlons to abaerv. the news rlvala all compotltora. This was illuotrated most effectively on tho day ot the landlng "f the envoys at the navy yard. Two Japaneae correopondenta presented themselvea to .rn offlcial for admlaaton to the yard. Tbey were told that passes had been re stricted, but were advised that. should th.e whole corps of Japanese corroopondenta get to? gether and designate one of their nurnber. lt would undotibtedly be possihle to gain admls si,.n for him. "Tea" aald one of the two. without a see ond'a hesitatlon, and, placing his hand on his chest. he executed the ever ready bow. "Me. I will tt". (live me the pass." The force of S'Tvants it the botej has ne.-es sarlly been greatly increased to take care of the crush of guests. Many of these employes give evidence oT a iiecide l lack of eompreben I to just what has tempotarily made the hotel so famous. This afternoon a burly porrer w.i_ iiiTrusted with a .-ard troxo the hotel offlce to M. Witte in the annox. When he arrived at ? ?r of the Russian suite he made a close observation of the card. and then stammered out: "1 have a card I want to give to Mr W-1-t-t-e!" Tnen pronounced the name Weete " "Ts be hore?" After the orehestra had finished its labors for tbe evening and there aeemed nothing to do excepl flght mosqulfoes ln silence, some one proposed that the party "go to Jerusab-m'' in the ballroom. Somethlng Hke twenty young people immedlately scampered to that spacious room, and in a jIfr"y the same nurnber of chalrs were in the centre of the floor. A tune was started on the piano, the party joined handa around the chairs and then acrtunbled for them, ?.nta the operation every time the music stopped. Aimaro Sato and Commander Isamti Taka s'nita. nf the Japanese suite. were eager par ticlpants in th.- ?rame. Mr-. Sato was the hit-.i. He unaeated stoiwort youtha and sent them apinnlng over the smooth floor ln undignlfled posltbuis. but be always secured a chalr for himseif. The naval attache was n<?t so fort unate. He found himseif at the sudr'en stop page of the music, whlch was the signnl fnr scr-ambllng for a scat. with his head on the floor and his feet ln a chalr. TERMS BEFORE THE CZAR. No Reply Sent to M.
