passed without the. interposition of a. chal
lenge by the Ames defense. A s a direct
Iresult of this form of procedure, three of
'the twelve men who are to try the deArrangements
fendant were chosen in less than two
hours. The attorneys for the state in

.anything more than a few preliminary
questions, accepted the juror.

terday, to abandon several of the original
demands. It is not denied that such re -
duction of the. maximum demands was
fully within contemplation when the ten
tative statement was thrown out.
If this assumption, general in official
circles here, is well founded, then Russia
will not further interfere with the con
summation of the United States' trade
treaty with China, including as it does the
new ports of Moukdon and Taku-Shan. On
the other hand, the fourth demand, char
acterized by the St. Petersburg statement
"unimportasxt,*' is not so regarded here,
for it amounts to an indefinite continuance
under Russian direction of present condi
tions in China which will stop all reform
movements. It is now learned that in
the original statement of this fourth de -
mand, namely, the present status, of the
administration of Manchuria is to remain
unchanged, there was an important error,
and the word Mongolia should take the
place of "Manchuria "
The demand as thus modified continues
the status Quot in all north China.

means the disintegration of the celestial
empire, and he does not believe we can
prevent, the Russian government from
taking Manchuria should China cede that
country to her. H e said tb-day:
"We send a great deal of petroleum to
Manchuria and are interested in that
country. W e also send much cotton there.
It may be assumed as a fixed fact in in
ternational politics that Russia is our
friend. It is probable that Russia would
adhere to the principle of the open door,
for which our government has so man
fully contended. But the seizure of Man
churia in all human probability means the
disintegration of China, and that we are
opposed to, because oud commerce may be
injuriously affected and because we are
