Washington. Oct. 4. Diplomatic re
lations between Russia und Japan
were resumed at the state department
for a short time today while fiaron
Kosen, the Uussl in ambassador and
Mr. Takahlra, the Japanese minister,
discussed Hie form of ratification of
their respective countries. The call
wag made by appointment at the re
quest of Takahlra, who desired to see
'the Russian form of ratification. Ac
cordingly, .Secretary Root sent for Mr.
Smith, chief of the diplomatic bureiiu
of the state department, who brought
to the diplomatic room n copy of the
Russian extradition treaty which gave
Mr. Takahlra the Information he de
sired. Hb.e envoys remained for a few min
utes in conversation with Secretary
Root without further exchanges. They
bowed pleasantly as they parted out
side the diplomatic room.
It would seem certain from this that
the ratifications of the peace treaty
are to be exchanged at Washington.

Forecasts Tarly Combination
With France and Kussia.
MIGHTY GAHE HAS BEGUN
ON OLD WORLD CHESS BOUD
Paris, Oct. 4. Chancellories here
and throughout Europe are t.iklng the
keenest Interest in the possible and
even probable formation of a new Eu
ropean 'alliance consequent upon the
termination of the eastern war and
the conclusion of a closer Anglo-Japanese
alliance. This has advanced
beyond discussion in the newspapers,
and has already reached the stage oi
discreet diplomatic soundings.
The various proposed realignments
of European powers are divided into
three main movements, first, the Brit
ish Inclination toward an accord with
Russia; second, a German-Hut-shin
movement for an alliance offsetting
the Anglo-Japanese alliance; and
third, Itusso-German overtures to in
duce France to Join the latter group
Ureat Britain s desire for an ap
proachment with Hussia has brought
about the distinct diplomatic sugges
tion that Great Britain is ready to
give fuller recognition to itussia's
privileged position in southern Turkey
notably at Constantinople and along
tho Hosphorus. Russia's ambitions in
that direction have heretofore encoun
tered strong opposition In England
The view In French official quarters is
distinctly favorable to an Anglo-Kus
slan reapproachmcnt. It was one of
the protects of M. Dclca.sse when
foreign minister, to hive King Ed
ward visit Emperor Nicholas as u
means for furthering the reconcilia
tion of Russia and Great lirltain.
Since the retirement of M. Delcasse
this project has been in abeyance, but
the officials continue laborable to an
Concerning the proposed German
Russian agreement strong elements In
both countries favor an accord as a
counterpoise to tho Anglo-Japanese al
liance. The Temps tonight prints an
au' lui l.u' ntT,ea r HV Pri-c e 'n
flueiov, the German imperial chan
cellor at Haden-Hadcn. openly advo
cating a German-Russian reapproach
uient. The prince says:
"it Is natural and traditional that
we should have the best relations with
Russia. Why should Franco take um
brage? We do not take umbrage, be
cause of the Fianco-Uussl ill alliance
A system of pacific alliances would
assure tho equilibrium of Europe. The
Franco-Italian reapproai hrnent hns
not an anti-German char-icter, nor
should a Russo-German reapproach
mcnt have an anti-French character."
In connection with French partici
pation in a Itusso-German r-ap-proachment
It can be definitely st ited
that France, before considering a new
alignment of the powers, Intends to
await the final determination of the
controversy with regard to Morocco
in which country Germany tlrst Inter
rupted the French program.
Afterward France might consider
German overtures, but until Morocco's
future Is assured French bonds of
sympathy will continue with Ku-fe'i.i
and Great Rrltaln.

rate, was brought out In the Insu-ai ce

John A- McCall, of the New York Life,
tcstllled that he In turn had borrowed
175,000 from the Metropolitan at tha
same rate. This was In January, 1903;'
the loan was renewed in January,
1904, and ran until March, 190G, wh,en
the rate of Interest was advanced to
2 per cent, at which rate It la still
McCall testified that ho was a dlrec
tor of the Metropolitan Life Insurance
company, but not a stockholder. The
fact of his being a director, McCall
continued, did not deter him from

interest as possible when It was to his ,

Mr. McCall said the New York Lire
Insurance company had paid Mr.
Hamilton no money, but suggested
that part of It might have come from
the state comproller's office by reason
of an assignment of tax money which
would come to the Judge by reason ot
his securing the repeal of the tax law
which relieved the New York Lire
rrom the payment of taxes. Judge
Hamlllonvwas to have one-third of the

McCall enlivened the day' proceed
ings further when he said that there
was no record on the book of the
New York Life Insurance company of
JlüO.flOO paid the republican national

no personal knowledge that the mon
was paid, ho assumed it was be-
