The week has seen no Important en gagements at the seat of war In Man churia, where Oyama Is gathering large reinforcements from Japan, but is apparently delaying his forward movement in hope that further blood shed may be averted by the adoption of an armistice as the first step In peace negotiations. Interest in the war situation has therefore centered almost entirely In the efforts of Presi dent Roosevelt to bring the bellig erents together in a sincere effort to establish peace. The week has made It plainer that Russia has been forced to recognize the hopelessness of further fighting, and that she is ready to end the war, provided favorable terms can be ob tained from Japan. The czar's gov ernment has assented to the proposals for a conference, which may be held in this country after the signing of a truce by Generals Llnevitch and Oya ma. The summer is likely to be well advanced, however, before the two powers will be able to agree to terms, if, indeed, agreement be possible. Russia, with her usual policy of brave bluff, is stoutly affirming that peace is out of the question If Japan demands an indemnity. Japan Is suc cessfully keeping sercet her terms of peace, but it is believed that she will demand the cession of Port Arthur and perhaps Vladivostock, with a large area of Manchuria, the virtual control of Korea, and an Indemnity to cover her war expenses, amounting probably to more than $uju,ooo,ooo. There is thus ample room for a fail ure of the negotiations, when they shall have at last begun. This will not be for several weeks. MUTINY ON SLAV SHIPS. Crews Displayed Cowardice When En emy's Presence Wu Known. Many tales of mutiny during the battle of the Sea of Japan on the part of the seamen of Russian ships are told with other Incidents of the battle In Japanese newspapers received re cently at Victoria, B. C., by the steam er Athenian. Two gun crews on the Dlmltri Don skoi, which had been torpedoed at night, mutinied when the presence of the enemy was suspected, and were only kept at their spiritless task under threats of being shot down. A petty officer of the Donskol said the atti tude of many on that vessel under Are was cowardly In the extreme, and when the facts were known officially many prisoners now In Japan would not seek to return to Russia at the end of the war. Arrested President's Chauffeur. Washington, June 31.—1t has devel oped that President Roosevelt's ohaf feur was overhauled for speeding while carrying the preisdent, his son, Theo dore, and two of the latter'a frienda, along the conduit road to Urea Falls. Two policemen, considering that the chaffenr was going at a speed greater than that allowed by law, gave ohaae and overhauled the automobile. When they learned who the oooupanta were they hastily withdrew after the presi dent had oautioned the ohaffear to slow up a little. The two policemen had penned the antomobile for half ■ mil* and on cat ching up with the it,charged the chaf fear with running at the rate of SB miles Hii hour when the police regula tions allow but 15 milee. The polioe men notified the ohaffeur that he would be required to appear in the polioe oourt, when the persident, who waa in the rear neat, inquired the reaion. The latter'a identity becoming known, the matter waa dropped. When the polioe- Lmen started after the antomobile the chaffenr, it is thought, probably con cluded it was part of the program for the protection of the prealdent. Proved a Good Floater. Weisar, Idaho, June 21.—Monday a ternoon Ed Peak, a carpenter, said to have been intoxicated, climed upon the guard rail of the bridge acroaa the Snake river at thia place and fell into the swollen river.

JUNE 81. 1905. PEACE PROGRESSING JAPAN AND RUSSIA GETTING TO AN AGREEMENT, Will Name Three Envoys on a Side for the Peace Conference at Washing ton, O. C.—Truce in Field Will Be Signed on Manchuria Battle Grounds Washington, June 19. —Russia and Japan have tentatively decided each to appoint three plenipotentiaries to represent ...em In the Washington con ference. M. Nelidoff, it Is understood, has already accepted the chairman ship of the Russian mission and is be ing consulted about the selection of his associates, but Washington has not yet heard whether Marquis lto'B health will permit him to come as the ranking Japanese plenipotentiary. The belief here is that Held Marshal Yamagata will be designated in Ito's place should the marquis be unable to accept. It is expected that the conference will convene here about the middle of August. Pending the official announcement Of the plenipotentiaries little progress toward the arrangement of an arm istice Is being had on either side. Japan will not take the Initiative in re questing an armistice. It Is improb able, however, that she would Insist on Russia making the request. It is generally expected that when the mis sions have been announced the presi dent will suggest to the belligerents the advisability of a limited truce and that this suggestion will be accepted. Instructions will then go to Llnevitch and Oyama to sign the armistice. The whole question of an armistice has been lntormally discussed at the White House, and the belief in diplo matic circles Is that tnere will not be a hitch In uie field by the Russian and Japanese commanders, and there are Indications that this will be finally ap proved in St. Petersburg. General commenuation is voiced In diplomatic circles of the president's tact In not communicating to Japan the suggestion from St Petersburg for a reconsideration of the selection of Washington for the conference. The irrevocable opposition of Japan to any capital of Europe was a matter of com mon knowledge in Washington, and the transmission of any such sugges tion, It was realized, would only Invite emphatic refusal from Japan and pos sibly seriously menace the convening of the conference. America's national capital has been selected as the seat of negotiations between the plenipotentiaries of Hus- Bia and Japan for a treaty of peace. The announcement Is made that Grand Duke Alexis, the high admiral, who is an uncle of the emperor and Admiral Avelian, head of the Russian admiralty department, had resigned. Emperor William in an autograph letter advised Emperor Nicholas to consider the question of peace. Tho practical certainty now that the peace negotiations can not begin for another month leads to the conviction that another battle will be fought in the Interval. An official denial has been issued of reports that lieutenant General l.tne vltch and other generals have Bent an appeal to the emperor against conclud ing peace. Alone on the plains of Manchuria, midway between the two great armies, the Russian and Japanese command ers will meet to sign the armistice which will pave the way for the Wash ington conference. Barring the distances and conse quent delay, the Japanese are entirely satisfied with the selection of Wash ington as the place for the peace con ferepce. Another Important detail which has been the subject of Informal conver sations at the White .muse is the lan guage to be used at conferences. Rus sia will ask that the French language be used; Japan will express a pref erence for English, and in recognition of the courtesies to be extended me plenipotentiaries by the Washington government, diplomats believe that the English language, if not accepted as the official language of the conference, will be used jointly with the French, the procedings of the conference being recorded in both tongues. Grand G. A. R. Hall. The city of Pittsburg Is to have a memorial hall erected for old soldiers and to cost not less than $2,500,000. H. G. Frick has caused the ways and means committee of the G. A.

MAKING ARMY HONORS EVEN. Generals Bates and Corbin to Advance in Rank. An official announcement Is made at the war department that Major Gener al John C. Bates and Major General Henry C. Corbin would successively serve as chief of staff with the rank of lieutenant general after the retire ment of General Chaffee next April. General Corbin becomes of retiring age in September, 1906, and General Bates in August, 190G, but the present plan contemplates that General Bates, who will be the immediate successor to General Chaffee, will be retired in advance of his regular time in order that he and General Corbin, who will succeed him at the head of the army, may divide the time between the re tirement of General Chaffee and the date of General Corbln's retirement officially.
