THE PEACE OF PORTSMOUTH.
The resuli! of the rearo negotiations
at Portsmouth between Russia and
Japan Is calculated to nMonlsh the
world. Up to' the very moment tho two
enemies clasped hands their represen
tatives In the conforence were express
ing n deep despondency over the pros
pects of peace and loudly explaining to
the world the reasons, cogent and un
answerable, why it could not be se
cured. If the drama enacted had not
Involved so much, had not been
fraught with such mammoth questions,
Involving the life anil happiness of
millions, It could be written as a roar
It Ik not necessary hero to rovlew
the negotiations nor to call attention
to the hourly repeated assurance of
the representatives that further con
cessions by them' would he nothing hut
an acceptance of an lulllctlon of hu
miliation und disgrace upon their
it appears now that II was an Orl
entnl dicker, marked throughout with
deception, with affectation, with
frowns and with tears. It was the Mon
golian pure of the South against tho
mixed Tartar-Mongolian breed of tho
North, each truo to Its Oriental Llood
and following those lines of Orlentnl
diplomacy which have not been de
parted from slnco the yellow man took
a part In the world's affairs.
The performance over, tho results
aro to bo arrived at. Japan receded!
from hor demand for Indemnity for
the Island of Sakhalin, for tho in
terned Russian war vessels, and for
a limitation of tho Russian naval pow
er In tbi East, Russia was not forced
to pay an Indemnity, was permitted
to retain the northern half of the
Sakhalin Island, was not limited In her
naval power In the east. Iloth nations
agreed to evacuate Manchuria, to turn
back to China tho territory which
they were occupying, and to preserve
the open door In that country.
At tho first blush, or rather by con
sidering only the last phases of the
negotiations, or rather tho last anil
most important points In such negotia
tions, the impression is left that Rus
sia won a decisive victory In this dip
lomatic combat, anil that she comes
out of It. It not with glory, then at
least with her prestige unlmpaltou.
She c alled the world's attentlon to the
fact that she was asked to gnc terri
tory nnd blood money. She emphasized
these two demands of Japan to tho
extent of impressing, ns was her pur
pose, the world with" tho "belief that
they were the most" serious of all that
was mad?, and thnt she would not
yield to them. In carrying hor point
on the two she would thereby nave lur
Japan insisted on the whole of tho
Islnnd mentioned nnd of a stupendous
sum to repay her financial losses In
curred by the war. Indeed, her states
men feet the figures at a thousand mil
lions of dollars. This was before tho
conference. Throughout the hegotla
tlons she adhered to the demand for
romnnnsatlon for her expenses, but
these demands she modified ns she
proceded In 'In .settlement of other
miestloiih. Finally she withdrew all
claims In this respect.
Time nnd a closer Investigation of
the results of the conference at Ports
month will probably wholly correct
any linpretslon that Russia got the
best of the bargain. Indeed, there Is a
probability that all she secured was a
longer lease of life for her autocratic
government Thnt was in danger, nnd
it may be saved by Wltte's carrying
homo the news of peace and the ex
planation that it was secured without
humiliation. And It Is probable also
that Japan loaded her demands o
that In the end hho might secure all
that (.he really expected, while permu
ting Russia to save her face, Russia
had emphatically occupied Manchuria.
Russia had occupied (lie strategic
points of Port Aithur nnd Daluy, one
for wor and the other for commerce.
She had denied the right of Japan to
a preH)nderatlng iufiuence in Koreu
and was really threatening at the very
doors of Japan. Russia hnd sent her
railroads through Manchuria down to
the warm water ports, and had done
so nt a cost of untold million. She
hud come to stay.
She lost Port Arthur. She lost Dalny.
She lost her railroad from south of
Harbin to the warm water port.
Thoso are conceded by her to be lost
forever. A few of her great war ves
sels went to the bottom. The rest aro
sailing the seas under Japanese names.
Sakhalin Island, which Japan was forc
ed to code her In 1S75, sh now Is will
ing to divide, she taking the northern
half, cold, sterile and almost uninhab
itable, while Japan U given the south
ern half, where the climate Is good
and wliero coal, Immense forests, pe
troleum and tlsli abound. She assents
to Japan's "pnjponderaiing Influence"
In Korea, and virtually turns that
country over to Japan without limita
tions ami with a full Knowledge that
it is to be made thoroughly JnpatK"-i
'lln iiUriU'1 v.. i v m1s nre oi'.
really Is only permitted to go to a
Junk pilo for what she has left of her
grAt fleet which cost her so much
tlmq nn'd 'money. The limitation of her
naval power In the east Is established
for a generation to come nt least.
With tho people of Russia groaning
loudly under their burdens, with the
money markets of the world skeptical
an to her ability to ralao moro money,
with an enormous debt Incurred In the
war, very dollnr of which was lost,
and with not a single ship worthy of
I lie name, outside of the lllnck Sea,
as the beginning of a navy. Japan
could well recede from a demand for
a limitation of Russia's nnval power
in the east.
There will probably be rejoicing In
Russia over the pence pact. It would
he cruel to go further In showing how
little cause there Is for It. Dallas
COMMITTEE ADOPTS MAP.
Proposed State of Sequoyah to Have
Muskogee, I. T., Aug. 30.--( Special j
After a light which lasted twelve
hours, the committee on constitution,
consisting of fifty-fire members, has
adopted a map of the proopsed new
counties of the state of Sequoyah and
It Is fairly certain that this map will
be adopted by the constitutional con
vention when It re assembles Septem
ber .1. The map shows forty-eight
counties. The smallest has an urea
of 430 square miles; the largest has
1.7.10 square miles und tho average Is
OCC square tulles, Averago population
10,000, , .; . '
A threo cornered nght was made.
Some of tho committeemen thought
there were too many counties and
wanted the number reduced to 35. Oth
ers wanted tho constitutional conven
tion to pass the matter up entirely,
recognize the present 20 recording dis
tricts as counties until nfter the first
legislature assembled and then pass
the matter up to that body for dividing
up Into counties. The sub-committee
stood pat on Its report, however and
after an all-days fight succeeded in
getting the map adopted. They declar
ed that under the constitutional pro
vision that any person desiring to vote
either for or against any section o'
the constitution must first vole for the
constitution ns a whole and that I
the county map Incurred opposition
the people who would naturally be
against the constitution would bo forc
ed to voto for Us adoption first In or
der to bo able to voto against an
county provision to which they were
ojiposod. This theory won and the
map was ncceptcd.
The same committee .recommended
the election of four congressmen to
ho voted on at tlte same time the con
st Hut Ion is voted upon. These mem
hers to be seated In congress by the
acceptance of the constitution, they
bolng delegated to present tho const!
tutlon to congress and work for Its
adoption. This measure was also
fought by a faction which wanted ft
provision for one delegate who should
represent tho Territory In congress In
case that body refuses statehood an
grants territorial form of government,
The four congressmen proposition wen
out and the committee went on record
ns favoring separate statehood lmraO'
dlately and no provisions for negotln'
tlons for a territorial form of govern'
ment until congress turns the statO'
hood proposition down. Tho entire
day was consumed In these discus
sions. The committee Is holding nigh
