measure which is rarely resorted to
except in caso war is regarded as an
absolute certainty. The advice on this
point does not indicate that any Amer
icans have been affected by the nobeen
tice, although it is understood that
the purpose of the Russians is to pre
vent any spying in Vladivostock,
which is to be made the principal base
of naval operations in the event of
war.

Important Conferences of Frequent
Occurrence.
Tokio, Feb. 5.Premier Katsura and
his associates in the cabinet gave a
dinner during the day to eighteen
representative peers and communi
cated to them the nature and progress
of the diplomatic negotiations with
Russia.
The Marquis Ito had a private audi
ence with the emperor, at which the
situation was discussed. These and
other incidents clearly indicate the
seriousness of the situation.
It is generally believed that Russia
Is massing troops north of the Yalu
river so as to be prepared to resist a
possible invasion by the Japanese.
The cabinet, elder statesmen and
commanders of the army and navy
are in almost constant conference or
communication. There is, however,

The belief is prevalent that Russia
Is seeking to provoke Japan to take
the initiative.
JAPANESE ARE WARNED.
State of Siege May Be Proclaimed
Any Momenta
Tokio, Feb. 5.The Japanese com
mercial agent at Vladivostock has
been notified by the commander of
the Russian garrison that he might at
any time, in accordance with orders
from St. Petersburg, have to proclaim
a Btate of siege. Consequently he de
sired the agent to make preparations
for the eventual departure of Japanese
residents. Should any wish to re
main they will be ordered*to repair to
Habarovsk.
Japanese official reports confirm
marked military activity in Manchu
ria. Houses have been prepared at
Liaoyang, Paicheng, Kaichow and
other places for the accommodation
of Russian soldiers. Carts have also
requisitioned to transport ammu
nition and stores. Troops are steadily
moving in the direction of the Yalu
and the Chinese residents of Yiugchou
are preparing for flight.
THINK IT MEANS WAR.
Conclusions Drawn From Russian Mil
-jtfl i'y 'Airtlyity.
Paris, Feb. 5.The foreign office
here expected definite information dur
ing the day concerning the Russian
reply, but the failure to receive ad
vices is construed as meaning that the
document is not ready, or that extreme
precaution is being taken at St. Peis
tersburg owing to the gravity of the
situation. In the meantime the French
officials consider that the very great
naval and military activity of Russia
is equivalent to a declaration that the
response will constitute Russia's last
word.
DESTINATION UNKNOWN.
Russian Fleet of Warships Leaves
Port Arthur.
London, Feb. 5.All the Russian
warships, except one which is under
going repairs, are reported to have
left Port Arthur. Their destination is
unknown.

FEDERAL GRAND JURY INVESTI-
GATING VIOLATORS OF PRO-
HIBITION LAW.
GOVERNMENT LOSES MUCH REVENUE
COMMISSIONER YERKES BACK OF
MOVEMENT FOR WHOLE
SALE ARRESTS.
Kansas City, Feb. 5.Wholesale in
dictments by the federal grand jury
of express agents in Kansas City,
throughout Kansas and in the prohibi
tion counties of Texas, and of liquor
dealers who have been shipping liquor
into these prohibition states are im
minent, the result of a movement
started by John W. Yerkes,* commis
sioner-of internal revenue at Wash
ington
The local agents .of three
wholesale liquor houses, it is an
nounced, have been indicted and a\
rested but released on their own rec
ognizance and additional bills will, it
said, be found against the agent of
every express company in Kansas
City, in the state of Kansas and in the
prohibition com.ties of Texas wlv
have acted as agents fur the liquor
houses in selling whisky a fast as
the evidence against them cau be pre
sented.
For years practically every express
company in this part of the Southwest
has acted as the agencies for liquor
companies who have sold liquor in
Kansas and Texas, the express agents
of the different companies acting nom
inally as agents at the various points,
thus practically nullifying tho prohibi
tion law. To,avoid the law the whisky
was sent in sealed* packages, ad
dressed to fictitious names, and sold
hy the agents for "express charges."
Millions of cases of whisky have been
sent into Kansas yearly and for each
case disposed of the agents were al
lowed 50 cents. This naturally has
proven not only a violation of the pro
hibition laws of the states named but
has deprived the federal government
of an immense amount of rvA"

BRITISH FISCAL POLICY.
John Morley Will Introduce Amend

London, Feb. 6.John Morley an
nounced during the day in tho house
of commons his definite intention to

ment to the address in reply to tho
speech from tho throne, even if Pre
mier Balfour is absent.
Previous to this announcement
Home Secretary Akys-Douglass, in
behalf of the government, said he was
willing to give facilities for an ade
quate discussion of tho fiscal quostlon
if the amendment was withdrawn, but
a storm of protests, which Issued
from the* opposition benches, decided
Mr. Morley to carry out his original

Tho possible development of typhoid

source of apprehension of the attend
