"My observations are that there is a lesser degree of activity in the financial district here than obtains in St. Eouis at the present time. All the financiers here speak of the great prosperity of the Cen tral -West, and attribute the long duration of good times In that territory to the abundant crops and high prices received therefor.

Three Uegiiuentof Kussian Sol diers Leave Port Arthur for the Yalu River Great Activity in Forts. Loudon. Jan. 29 The Dally Graphic claims to be able to affirm that Russia's dratt of her reply has not jet been of ficially presented to Japan, but that It husj been communicated to il. Kurlno, the Japanese Minister at St. Petersburg, who has transmitted the contents to Tokio, whence It will be conveed to the friendly Pow ere. The Hussaan reply Is courteous, the DallyGraphic coutinues, but It refusej 111 uncompromising terms to permit the reinsertion in the draft of the treaty of the two words guaranteeing the integrity and independence of China upon which Japan insisted in her last note. The clause proposed by Japan was that Russia and Ji.pau should mutually agree to respect the "integrity and independence of China ai.d Korea."

Great preparations are being made at the forts day and night. The Novy Krai says that Russia hesi tates to open Mukden, fearing an Irresist ible American competition, but she Is In different tu Biltish competition in Man churia. JAPAN BELLICOSE. Tokio, Jan. 2S. Russia's response is eag eily awaited, and if It should prove unsat isfactory to Japan an immediate declara tion of war seems unavoidable. The Japanese feel that the entire respon sibility for the outcome rests with Russia. Some doubt Is expressed whether Russia properly appreciates the determination and temper of the Japanese people, and it seems Incredible that Baron de Rosen has failed tn correctly inform the Government at S" Petersburg of the situition. Japan is busy perfecting a financial pro gramme. The announced plan to issue bonds and increase taxation meets with popular approval, but some objections have been made to the proposed method of procedure, as well as to the redemption plan. It Is expected that the final details will be settled soon. BANKERS HELPING.
