Negotiations for peace continue with smooth? ness and expedition and with no untoward in? cidents. The effort of some to set? a sinister significance in tin? difference between the Rus? sian and the Tipa 11 ear credentials necessarily fails when the ??use Is understood. II might seem strriiige, after all that was said in ad? vance, and after what Mr. Witte himself was reported to have said about the limitations of the Russian envoys* powers, to lind the Rus? sians really invested with greater powers than the Japanese. The Russian envoys can make a treaty of pence which tli<- ? zar is pledged in advance to ratify, no matt?*r what its terms may he; bi't while the Japanese can make a treaty, it will still rest with the Mikado to ratify it or not, accord i ne to his ?l.scretlon. The ex? planation is simple. The difference is the dif? ference between the two governments. The Car is an absolute monarch, the Mikado is a constitutional sovereign. The former can make any pledge he sees fit. and delegate his powers at will, while the latter must act according to the constitution of his empire. That is all there is in that matter. The Japanese presented their proposals promptly, the Russians were equally prompt with their reply, and w. may confidently as? sume there trill 1-e no delay in the Japanese re Joinder. The terms and ?..unter terms are not made public, but some hints at their nature are made, perhaps upon good authority. At any rate, the world has set about discussing the reported terms as though they were authorita? tive, and in such discussion there Is no little significance. That Russia objects to Japan's demands as too severe is natural. Sho was sure to do so. Equally natural is it that Japan re? gards them as moderate and lenient. Almost the same may be said of British opinion, which closely coincides with Japanese, seeing that Great Britain is the ally of Japan. But, then. France is Russia's equally close ally, and French estimates of the terms do not coincide with Russian. We are told that France does con? sider them "somewhat harsh," but as by no means Impossible or precluding settlement. Germany is not openly an ally of either, but is nominally neutral, and German opinion is that Japan*, demands are reasonable and just and that Russia will in the end have to accept them. Italy ?i'so to ? neutral power, and her opinion is that Russia will hnve to yield, and that she can do so, even in the payment of "reimburse? ment" an?l the relinquishinent of Saghallen, without damage to her pride. The surrender of Saghalien is still said to be one of the chief points ?if disagreement. The ces? sion of territory is. as we have hitherto ob s?rved. often r??gardod as a grievous and hu? miliating condition of peace. Nevertheless, it is one of the? commonest results of war. much more common than the payment of a cash in? demnity. In the case of Saghallen, moreover. there are some special considerations which should make such cession less hard for Russia. We speak of it as cession, but. In fact, the ?H'cstion is not whether Russia shall relinquish ti:e island to .lapan. but whether Japan shall relinquish it t<> B?sala. For Japan has already taken it from Russia. She possesses and occu? pies and governs it. It is already hers by right of conquest, if peace should U' made on the principle of t-?? pomi?tti*, ?Saghalien would cer? tainly remain a Tapailfac possession. In socking t<> regain it. R?sala is asking to have that prin? ciple get aside and to return to the state which existed before the war. Again. Saghalien Is not ;;nj never has been a traditional or really Integral part of the Russian Empire, but logical? ly and historically belong? to Japan, from whom Etnaala took it by force fifty years ago. An ??ieiitly ?lalmed by China, both Saghalien and t'u>- Kuriles ?ere indisputably Japanese terri? tory when in 1852-*S5 The Russian ?>onquista<lor, Blararieff, arbitrarily laraded and seized them, just a? he seized maintain] provinces which be 1 *""_.*'(I to i '?.ilia. At that time Japan w;is un able to do more than to protest against SOe_ spoliation. She maintained lier protest for more than twenty years, until IK.."., when Russia practically compelled her to make a treaty re U-iquiahiag Saghalien in consideration of a res? toration to her Of some of the Kuriles. It'is not accurate i<> say Rue-da 'traded*' the Kuriles for Saghalien. for both belonged to Japan. The Japanese view is thai if B?sala had the right to Saghalien by conquest In l*-?.""-.. Japan has the same riebt to retake it by ?-onquest in lu?'.".. Of conree, l?nssia'- great reluctance to part with it arises from the fact ihat RaghaHen dominates the mouth of the Amoor River, and is therefore the key to all ?"astern Siberia; but that is from the Japanese point <>f view nn equally strong reason why .lapan should retain possession of it. Somewhat more open to question niiprht be the propriety of Japan's Insisting upon the neu? tralization ?if Vladivostok and the limiting of Russia's naval foree in the Pacific. Such <?on _Ut-Ottfl would be | lasting source of Irritation to Russia aad a barrier to the growth of that friendship between the two nations which is mutually desirable. Nor is it certain they would lie essential ta the security of Japan. The single port of Vladivostok, even If fortified, garrisoned and made a naval ba??e, could scarce ly be a mena? e to Japan. Us vast ?llstauce from the base ?if supplies would hopeles-sly handicap it. IioiilulesK it would Ik? unpleasant, and eren diequiet-ng, to Japan t?i have Bnsela develop a new fleet :;i Asian waters. But ihe true way to deal wjlh that wculd be to offset It with a su? perior Japanese feet. At present Russia has practically no licet at all. while Japan baa a large and cf*1ci??ut one, which is being increased by the addition of captured and repaired Bua M.ni ships. Russia, at most, would have only ihe one naval station at Vladivostok, and that tiot now a first class one, while Japan has half a dozen or uiore fine ones. With such a lea?l aud with such advantages, Japan should not fear Russian rivalry in that respect. All these and all other reported terms of peace are, how ev? r, suitable for discussion by the envoys nt ' Portsmouth. Nothing has lieen said on either side to cause any rupture of negotiations. The belief is therefore maintained and eonflrnn-d that tha conclusion of n Just and lasting peace is within the reach of the conference. WTTTB A\n THE JEWS. The Russian Jews In the I'nlted States, with a view t.. battering ihe caeWUttaa af their heath be are still In the land of the I'zar. hope to enlist the sympathy i<t M-. Witte |n their caaaa and to imiu? ?? him to "remember tha Jews 1.imlly" v.hen be n-lurns to his country.

Mr. Witte was probably anxious to get ? glimpse at his countrymen of tilia class, and lost no time lu "seeing for himself." Before the open letter was written lie had seen the crowded district of New-York -where the Russian Jews live-ami showed further interest when he asked Russian Jews In Boston questions ahout their adopted country. But .Mr. Witte has troubles of his own, and it is doubtful whether closer study or arguments could Induce him to become the champion fjf the people who seek his aid. All does not depend on him. however. If it Is true that the Russian Jew Is a food citizen in the country to which he has tied from Rus? sian persecution, that fact will become known to the world, Witte or no Witte. BLOW WORK ox WAimuins. Compared with the progress of the work on the other vessels, that doue on the Kansas, launched yesterday, indicates rensonahle ?lili- j gerne on the part of her builders. Exactly eighteen months have elapsed since the laying of her keel. That intervul was exceeded by ouly a few days in the history of the Louisiana. the Connecticut and the Minnesota Constru ?? tion having been begun on the Vermont, the re? maining battleship of tills group, on May 21. 1904, the time for setting her afloat will not ar? rive before Thanksgiving Day or Christmas. When a certain other class of vessels is taken into consideration, the headway made witli those Just enumerated is particularly creditable. From two to three years intervened between the laying of the keel and the launching of the Virginia, the Rhode Island, the Nebraska, the Georgia and the New-Jersey. Generally speak? ing, as much more time is required for the com? pletion of a battleship as is spent on her previ? ous to launching, on that assumption, then, the 16,000 ton.ships (of which the Kansas is a rep? resentative! will he finished in three years from the dates of beginning, whereas the mem? bers of the other group of about the same dis? placement may each need from four to six. There are special reasons for hoping that the Connecticut find the Louisiana will be ready for trial in less than three years from the laying of their keel?, but that is a fair standard for expectation regarding the Kansas, the Minne? sota and the Vermont. The fact Is. though, four years is a needlessly long period for such work. Three years la, too. Hitherto warships have been built iu United States yards about as quickly as abroad; but there Is a growing disposition in foreign coun? tries to hasten matters A writer in "Cassier's Magazine" insisted hist October that one year was enough, and he mentioned two or three j vessels which had been built for the British navy in less than twenty-four months. Indeed, two years is the contract limit for the new Ln;: lish battleships, displacing 16,000 tons and car? rying by far the most, formidahle batteries In the world. Obviously, if bigger vessels than any now tinder construction in American yards can oe completed on the other aide of the Atlantic in that time, it is possible to duplicate the achievement here. Within the next decade, per? haps, the time will he shortened even further. Two great advantages would result from such a reform. Ships would he built more economical? ly, and they would be more nearly up to date in design, ?l marnent and appointments. When five or six rests are permitted to elapse be? tween the planning of a war vessel and putting her in commission, there is a danger that, at the very opening of her career, she will he less competent to cope with a possible adversary than if she had been built more rapidly. The shorter the time spent in her construction the more modern will he the ideas she embodies. IMMUNITY FROM YELLOW FEVER. Three the? ries at least might lie advanced to account for the illness of Surgeon Berry, of the Marine Hospital Service, in New-Orleans. It is conceivable that the first attack, which was supposed to preclude a second, was not one (t? ??c'iuine yellow fever at all. Again. there may he Instances in which immunity does not follow. Finally, thee Is a possibility that when it has ensued after a visitation of the real malady its effect is not lasting. The last of these conjectares is. on the whole, the must reasonable, in his well known work ?on "Military Hvgieno" Munson declares that if a person who lias once suffered from the die?, as ? leaves "the yellow fever belt.** as he calls it. and -iocs North, he will he more BSSCeptlbl ?"> to a fresh attack than if he had stayed in the same place nil the while. That statement ap? pears to he applicable to I ?r. Berry's case; for his original experience with yellow fever was in Galvestou, ami lie la said to have resldtnl in New-York for a time before being assigned to duty in the Cres e;it City. The difference in the readiness with which some peoph succumb to yellow fever as rom pared with otiiers lias often been a matter of ?'ommeiit. During the gnat epidemic <?!' is."i.". in New-orieans :\.r.s deaths oat <<f every 1.<hhi were among native C?enles, and there were <> 14 among "strsagers from the Weal Indies. Mexico and South America." The death rate of 230 among "strangers from Austria" ami 328 among "strangers from the Netherlands*' represented the other extreme, and offered a strange contrast to the ?lata tirsr quoted. Munson does not believe that there Is such a thing as absolute Immunity? dm? t-> racial stock. At best, he is disposed to con? cede only a p.-'rtial Immunity, and he regards iliis largely the result of birth and residence in the countries where the disease Is common. A number of becteriotogists have sought to develop a BertUU for the treatment ?,f yellow fsver, hut wlthent any substantial result thus lar. Though several experts have claimed that they liad Isolated and idi-ntitied the microbe peculiar to the disease, the pretence lacks ear roboraiion. The disorder is communicated hi siu-h a way that the existence of a ?gern !' strongly indicated; hut the fact has not been demonstrated, ami until it is the development of an antitoxin will be practically Impossible. For the present, prevent??m is the great l*e snurcc of the medical profession, and. if it j.s only adequately utilized, liiere will be no need of n cure. An ?pid?mie like that fr??m which New-Orleans ?s suffering is. in the light of re? cent discoveries, a disgrace to civilization. THE KtOMO I\ B?8ISE68. The American negro is not generally credited with the possession of the qualifications neces? sary to make him a sm-cessful business man. On Wednesday of this week the sixth annual convention of the National Negro Business: League, of which Hooker T. Washington is president, will open in this city. Those who follow the reports of the convention will learn mm-h t" csartsce them of tin- negro's possibilities in business. The sessions of the lesgtte an? expeileu??? meetings. It is the custom t?> give up part of the time to the presentation of accounts of the development of successful negro enterprises. Some ?dea of what has been accomplished In this respect by the colored man In the last few years may be gained from an article In another column in which the steries of some or these achieve ments are told. Negroes own hundreds (,f thousands of farms, a score of hanks, publish ing lasases, drag stores, hotels, ici! estate businesses and manufactories. Many of thes ? are conducted with an ahillty that shows their owners ai least lo lie the equals of the average ? ssful white ln-'u. The existence ui the Isagjita is a bopefuj sie-n. It is an ^ Itill m that the negro race in i his country is taking a new step in its devel? opment. It is an evidence tli.it the negro il endeavoring to solve his problem himself, in f waiting for the white man to lead him like a child into a higher sphere. It is th* surest evidence that the negro has B? "lily profited by the help which has already been given, bat that it is worth while to con? tinue that assistance. It indicates that he ha? a latent capacity to take care of himself. The objects of the league are to M those nigfo.s who hove already struck out for themselves, and, by serving as a medium for the dissemination of Information |agil dial negro successes, to encourage others to launch out also. As a result of its existence, the con? fidence of the American negro in himself is increasing. Hv means of it negroes are now preaching to themselves the doctrine of rel?? ame upon one another. Those who have en? gaged in business ate being impressed with the necessity for conducting it in such a way as to provide as good service as that provided by their white competitors. Their leader?? tell them that the way to secure respect is to show that they can ?lo thini** well. This is whol" some dactilne, and the fact that it is being preached Is a source of encouragement to those who are anxious about the ?solution of the race problem. An amusing result of the businet-s awaken? ing of the American negro described in our article is his discovery of a method to coin race prejudice into tangible dollars. The so? cial limits which whites have pat upon the negro are being turned by him into a busines. asset. The dove of peace is still hovering over Ports? mouth, but all the croakers are sure she will never light. e Blond will tell, of course, but the Prussian scientist who says he can tell one man's blood from that of another by the corpuscles does not seem to have left much for the blood to tell. Secretary Taft talks to the Filipinos "like a fath?r." and they seem to like his talking. Flala declares that the lives of his men were saved only by the forethought of Baldwin, his predecessor, In the command of the Ziegler ex? pedition, in depositing stores near Teplltz Bay. It is a pity that the financial backer of the enterprise is not alive to listen to this testimony to the capacity of the man whom he displaced. Dr. Iloriiadcy, director of the Bronx Zco, and Curator Pltmars. of the reptile house, report an accession of 213 to their interesting families of snakes. This is a case where the general public will be inclined to Insist either upon race suicide or the strictest kind of a quarantine. Immigration Commissioner Braun, it appears, did not resign on account of buttons. His rea? sons are given tn an interview, which, he says, "lasted about one hour, and which was taken clown stenorrraphically." Owing to the weather, the i cace conference and several other things, th? puhlk- is willing to take it for granted, without reading the formidable interview, that Commis? sioner Braun's reasons for resigning are satis? factory. e "Chicago rather fancies a rest." says a base? ball heading. A great many people are like Chicrgo in this particular, thrse mucky, ratny days. Tourists and Scientific students will, as time goes on, be having such narrow escapes from death on Ameri'-an glaciers as was reported yes? terday from Montana. Socini-r or Inter there will b" business enough for professional guides, like those who abound In Alpine villages, to minimize th-- danger ot Inspecting and exploring ihese wonders.
