RUSSIA WILL

Great Britain Has Notified the Czar
. - V That This Will Be
Expected. - - :
Claims Are Just and Generally Sup
ported'by European Dip
lomats.
Berlin, Dec. 24.An intimation has
reached the Japanese legation here
that Russia will concede Japan's re
quests.
In quiries mode b y the Associated
Inquiries-, made.' b y the Associated
mat ion. whether it came from Tokfo
or St. Petersburg, brought out noth
ing more than that a peaceful solu
tio n' is now highly probable.
The British government, it is un
derstood from another source, has
represented t o the czar that Great
Britain deems Japan's demands just,
and, earnestly expects that Russia will
grant the i n.
This representation is supported b y
the utterances of the British ambas
sadors here and in Paris and Vienna,
who have informed the respective
governments to which they are ac
credited that Japan, in the opinion of
the British government, will fight if
Russia holds to the position taken in
her. recent note.
The Russian ambassador here has
for several days been inquiring freely
what the opinions of the diplomatic
corps are.
JAPAX HAS DRAWN THE LDTB
Will Insist o n Evacuation o f Man
churia-Patience Overstrained.
Tokio, Dec. 24.According t o reli
able information communications sent
by the British minister, Sir Claude
MaeDonald. t o his government repre
sent Japan's patience a s dangerously
overstrained and its mind fully made
up.
I t is known that the Japanese gov
ernment has drawn the line for a set
tle7nent. beyond which it will not
make any material concessions, and
that she is determined t o fight before
yielding what she considers t o be, her
vital interests.
I t is believed that Japan will refuse
any arrangement holding i n abeyance
the question o f the evacuation of Man
churia, which was one of the terms
of the proposed arrangement recently
announced from St. Petersburg and
which it now is supposed was intended
by the Russian government a s a "feel
er ." This would be a violation of ex
pressed pledges given to Japan and
China.
T
Japan Has the Money.
The mikado and his cabinet have
been assured b y Baron Shibusawa, the
foremost business man and banker of
the empire, that the moneyed interests
of the country are willing t o face any
sacrifice rather than see the claims of
Russia allowed.
Shibusawa holds that Japan's finan
cial resources immediately available
are sufficient t o prosecute war sev
eral months and that additional money
can be secured when the present sup
ply is exhausted.
Military Preparations.
Incessant activity prevails a t mili
tary -headquarters. The transport and
other arrangements are complete. The
government is calmly awaiting the
llussiuri.'reply. {Which, it is hoped,.^1.11

NEGOTIATIONS PROCEEDING
Resources T Diplomacy: Are by
.'.' Means Exhausted. '."-,-
London. Dec. 24.Diplomatic cir
cles in .London look for several days of
dull Russo-Japanese negotiations.
The Japanese legation points out
that Japan's counter proposals will
possibly entail somewhat prolonged
consideration.
Meanwhile a London Times dispatch
from . Tokio saying:
formed circles in Japan d o not share
the pessimism which appears t o pre
vail in London, inasmuch a s the re
sources of diplomacy are b y n o means
exhausted," has created a more hope
ful feeling, especially a s the Times
yesterday, both in its dispatches and
editorials, took a warlike view of the
situation.
Ambassador Choate Speaks.
Ambassador Choate, who yesterday
attended Lord Lansdowne's reception
at the foreign office, is among those
who can hardly conceive how it is
possible that some way out of the diffi
culty cannot b e found, in order to
avoid a Avar which "must b e s o dis
astrous to nations and the conse
quences of which upon other nations
cannot be foreseen."
The reported naval and military
preparation on the part of Russia and
Japan are regarded here a s ordinary
precautions which would inevitably b e
taken b y the disputants in such a case
and which have but light bearing o n
the eventual issue of the negotiations.

Washington, Dec. 24.Congress-

ters a vigorous denial of the assertion
that h e is t o resign t o make a place

"I a m m y own master and Avill not

The trouble seems t o b e due t o fail

before completing arrangements to
fill his place. Leader Murphy wanted
to send Towne t o congress i n place of
McClellan, but this plan was changed
and Bourke CocKran substituted.

set certain of his able lieutenants to
work. They arranged that Rider was
to get out o n account of "il l health,"

I n Semiofficial Homes.
There '.are. eight, certified reformat"

They are a t present treating nearly 80.O,, -
patients committed b y the .magistrates"'.,
for being^ drunk and disorderly four '.-",
times in a single year. Greater Lon

these cases and Lancashire' about, 23*

I n the Voluntary Retreats.
Twenty-one private retreats com- "-

horrors of alcohol and willing to b e

about 600
large per-

waite, the inspector under the inebri
ates acts, says the work of the. private
retreats is s o efficacious - and - s o
fraught with good to individuals, fami
lies, and the state, that -their scope
should b e broadenef! b y law.
A t present the act o f 1879 governs
in the matter and it requires that the
consent o f the habitual inebriate who
does not break the law shall be ob
tained before h e or she is committed
to a retreat. Dr. Brahthwaite advo
cates the abolition of this requirement
in order that the authorities may.
prosecute a n active campaign against
the form of drunkenness which is not
associated with overt acts of lawless
ness.
Good Results o f the Work.

The inspector condemns short
.periods of detection-for drunkards, a s
"absolutely useless." Respecting the,
wprk pf. the state and .certified . lie -

worst possible characters are now i n

many of them, industrious lives. W e
