itcrsburg, Jan. -J. An Admiral
Influential in the councils of the
jjjsvas interviewed today by the
ed Press, and said
-
"Tho enormous Iohs which the com
merce of Japan is sustaining as a result of
the mobilization of steamships for trans
port servieo probably accounts for the Im
patience th Japanese are displaying over
the delay In the Russian reply, but this
leply will foresee other than a peaceful
settlement, although it is difficult to feel
certain in this respect because of the er
ratic course of the Japanese Government
during the latter stages of the negotia
tions. "Japan has Increased her demands
while tho negotiations were still In pro
gr ss. by Insisting upon treaty recogni
tion nf Chinese sovereignty In Manchuria.
Russia has declared her Intention not to
annex Manchuria, therefore why comply
with a demand that Is tantamount to a
humiliating reiteration of a former vol
untary declaration.
"It Ms undeniable that the altitude of
Ji pan Is causing Irritation In St. Peters
burg, and thai a feeling of impatience Is
glowing throughout Manchuria. It Is
hard to account for Japan's persistent
apgresal cness, but this must bo nt
1 tr'.butable to the Incendiary Influence of
the Japanese press, which Is acting un
der foreign inspiration. The Jnpancso
Government must know It stands no
chance-of defeating Russia, while Japan
bus much lo lose If Russia Is forced back
against tho wall
".'Should Japan proceed to hostilities
her ilrst object probably would be the cut
ting of the Siberian railroad, for which
purpose she would land troops in Korea.
She could not. however, land more than
lCd.COO min, and Russia has an equal num
ber of niMi m Manchuria to meet this at
tnck which. I think, would be quickly
repulsed. I do not believe In a naval war;
the Russian warships would make It lm
pcisible for the Japanese Jo endanger
Pori Arthur Bui Jet me repeat, war is
improbable."

tafter many rumors, definite

lotlflcation reads as follows:

fcu.eejable pleasure to his return

which is very much
Kjyprerent.
PfQ"fthe regiment numbers 700
I officers, some of whom are
P r absence and some on dc
ir?Ice. At Fort Douglas there
JalTina,1'es of Infantry and a
jjm?1 ' artillery. Two companies
are at Fori Duchesne; four are at Fort
Bliss, Ida.; one is at Fort Apache,
Ariz., and one Is at "Whipple barracks,
near Prescott, Ariz. They have not
been together since they came home
from their island service In the spring
of 1902, and the men and officers are
glad of tho prospect of mobilization.
Some will not go with tho regiment,
cither because they are not fit for the
work in the hot climate of the Philip
pines or because their term of enlist
ment would expire within six months.
The latter will be assigned lo some
other regiment if they do not care to
re-enlist.
A recent examination of the regiment
was made by the surgeon, and about
twenty men In the barracks here were
pronounced unlit for island service.
There will be as many more from the
other companies In all probability. j
The command will probably sail from
San Francisco in an army transport.
The voyage tak,es about a month, and
after the seasick period passes off is
pleasant. The fare is very good, and
the men have various ways of amu
ing themselves, and they stop at Hono
lulu. They wear the khaki uniform in
place of the heavier blue
The Twelfth has been in Fort Doug
las nearlj two years, arriving on May
10, 1002, and the officers and men have
made many friends. Several of the of
ficers have married Salt Lake women,
and many social ties will be broken by
their departure.

PILGRIMS AT FESTAL BOARD I
TALK BYCABLE. I
Ufliqne and Brilliant Celebration by Pilgrims' Society H
on Both Sides of Atlantic-Diplomatists, Nobles, i H
Clergymen and Others Exchange Greetings. H

branch or the Pilgrims' society was giving
Its dinner tonlKht at Dclmonico's In New
York in honor of Sir Henry Mortimer
Durand. British Ambassador to the
United States, the. English branch of the
society celebrated tho occurrence with a
supper at tho Carlton hotel.

rilgrlms' socIety here sat down at a num
ber of small tables, which wero all looped
up with telegraph wires strung on minia
ture poles and decorated with foliage.

sisted In tho installation by a trans
Atlantic cai.le company of cable instru
ments In one end of the supper-room. By
means of this arrangement frequent mes
sages wero exchanged between Dclmon
ico's in New York and the Carlton hotel
here, so that the English Pilgrims felt
almost as much In touch Willi the Now
Ycrk celebration as If they had been ac
tually present. Two old grandfather's
clocks, one showing' English and the
other American time, enabled Mr. Choato,
the Earl of Halsbury and the others to
keep an eye on the progress of the ban
quet at New York.
Tho usual cable company's clock with
red hands showing American time was
placed between the two old grandfather's
decks and- noticeably marked tho pro
gress, of tho age. Strands of the Atlantic
cable laced upon tho table enabled tho
quests to realize the means by which tho
instantaneous and intimate Interchange
was possible In spite of tho difficulties of
dlslanco and tho difference In time. Tho
pamerof Sir Henry Mortimer Durand. when
pronounced was given a hearty cheer.
