Private reports thru official channels

The authorities here are inclined to
take the view that the influence of

I hardly think so. Japan has pre

ultimatum. Our war expenditures have
amounted to 1,800,000,000 en, about
$900,000,000. We have made all the
concessions: we have yielded everything
to bring about peace. I think there
can be no more concessions.
Japan wants peace but we want
peace with justice. Btissia wants peace
with honor. Those desires are now in
compatible. We may have peace yet. I
hope so. The envoys will meet again
tomorrow. We may know more then.
Both nations want peace. Japan, as I

Sea Girt, N J. 'Aug. 25VWhen the
Bignal was given today to begin firing
in the .military rifle tournament the
weather was clear and the conditions
for shooting unusually favorable. No
time was lost in resuming work in the
national individual match, which began
yesterday, but at 10 a.m. the shooting
was interrupted by rain.
The published program and schedule
of events have been disregarded. In
stead of being concluded early today
the national individual match will con
sume all of today and continue well into
If all the 657 competitors get thru
with the slow and rapid fire by tonight
they will accomplish more than is ex
pected of them. That will leave the
skirmish runs for tomorrow. The na
tional pistol match, scheduled to begin
at 1 p.m. today had to be postponed.
It will follow the national individual
match and very likely will be shot
tomorrow afternoon. In view of the
foregoing, the indications are strong
that the national team match will be
by far the most important event in the
tournament. I was slated to start at
8 o'clock tomorrow morning, but will
have to be delayed until next Monday.
Furthermore, it is believed that the
national team match cannot be finished
in three days, as intended.

Paris, Aug. 25.The semi-official

the growing French sentiment that Eus

the peace terms, even tho they are
hard. The pater says:
"After the long and constant re
verses suffered 'by Eussian arms in the
far east Eussia will do well if she suc
ceeds in preserving the integrity of
her territory and escaping with the
mere payment, of an indemnity, whifeh
is nqt, a mortal wound. Resisting the
efforts of President Eoosevelt ancl put
ting off the conclusion of peace already
ripe, amounts to a refusal to look the
facts in the face. I is the fatal Eus
sian system of 'nitchevo,' which does
not conduce to Eussia's welfare."
