ENVOYS ARE NAMED RUSSIA AND JAPAN GIVE THEM COMPLETE POWER TO ACT. Work on the Treaty of Peace Will Be gin Early in Auguat—Preaident Roosevelt Again Triumphed in In sisting tha Envoys Have Full Power. Oyster Bay, L. I, July 4.—Official announcement is made by President Roosevelt of the names of the Russian and Japanese envoys to the Washing ton peace conference. The character and ability of the men selected by both belligerents is an earnest dem onstration of the desire of the re spective governments to conclude, if possible, the tragedy being enacted in the far east. The plenipotentiaries are: Russia — Ambassador Muravieff, formerly minister of justice and now ambassador to Italy, and Baron Ros en, recently appointed as ambassador to the United States to succeed Count Cassini. Japan—Baron Komnra, minister of foreign affairs, and Kogoro Takahira, minister to the United States. By direction of the president Secre tary Loeb made the formal announce- ment in the following statement: Power to Conclude a Treaty, "The president announces that the Russian and Japanese governments have notified him that they have ap pointed plenipotentiaries to meet here (Washington) as soon after the first of August as possible. The two Rus sian plenipotentiaries are Ambassador Muravieff, formerly minister of justice and now ambassador at Rome, and Ambassador Rosen. The Japanese plenipotentiaries are Baron Komura, now minister of foreign affairs, and Minister Takahira. "It is possible that each side may send one or more additional represen tatives. The plenipotentiaries of both Russia and Japan will be entrusted with full power to negotiate and con clude a treaty of peace, subject, of course, to ratification by their respec tive home governments." Full Power Demanded. A day or two ago the Russian and Japanese governments formally com municated to the president the names of the plenipotentiaries they respec tively selected. Acting as an inter mediary the president communicated the names of the Japanese envoys to the St. Petersburg government, and those of the Russian representatives to Tokio. After giving both govern ments assurances that the selections were satisfactory the president, ac cording to his agreement with the belligerents, authorized the public an nouncement of the envoys. Some delay was occasioned In the selection of the plenipotentiaries by the insistence of Japan that the en voys of both governments be clothed with full power to conclude peace and to negotiate a permanent treaty. The Japanese government Indicated point edly that the emperor would not per mit his envoys to enter upon a tenta tive conference in wklch Japan was to define its terms and then let Russia decide whether the conferees should proceed with their deliberations. The Tokio government insisted that the plenipotentiaries should have con ferred on them treaty making powers and that the negotiations should be entered upon In a spirit of perfect sin cerity. Such, too, was the position taken by President Roosevelt. He main tained that only by clothing the en voys with ample authority to act for their respective governments could a lasting peace be achieved. He strong ly urged the St. Petersburg govern ment to accede to what was regarded as a reasonable proposition of Japan. That he was successful In bis presen tation of the matter to the Russian emperor is indicated clearly in the statement which he issued today. The president's announcement prac tically concludes the preliminary ne gotiations for peace. Minor details re main yet to be arranged, but the con ference now seems to be assured. While no absolute date for the meet ing of the envoys has been fixed, it has been determined that the first session will be held in Washington about the first of August. No decision has yet been reached as to the place of holding the sessions. In this connection the word "here" In the official statement issued today is likely to be misunderstood. It means merely "in this country." The sessions of the conference, of course, will not be held at Oyster Bay, although it is expected now that the envoys of the two conferring powers will come to Oyster Bay to pay their respects to President Roosevelt and to receive his greetings. This trip to the president's home probably will be made in two warships, the Mayflower and the Dolphin being under consid eration for the mission. Carries 218,200 Bushels Corn.

The boat carried 218,200 bushels of the cereal. The weight of the big cargo caused the boat to draw 18 feet 11 inches of water. The cargo was ship ped north for Canadian consumption. SPORTING NEWS.

The proclamation will be forwarded by mail to all ambassa dors and ministers of the United States in foreign countries and also will be transmitted officially to the diplomatic representatives at Wash ington of foreign nations. The following is the full text of the announcement: "A proclamation by the president of the United states. "John Hay, secretary of state of the United States, died on July 1. His death, a crushing sorrow to his friends, is to i„e people of the coun try a national bereavement and in ad dition is a serolus loss to mankind, for to him it was given to stand as a leader in the effort to better world conditions by striving to advance the cause of international peace and Jus tice. "He entered the public service as the trusted and intimate companion of Abraham Lincoln, and for well nigh 40 years he served his country with loyal devotion and high ability In many positions of honor and trust, and finally he crowned his life work by serving as secretary of state with such far slghtedness In the future and such loyalty to lofty Ideas as to con fer lasting benefits not only upon our own country but upon all the nations of the world. "As a suitable expression of na tional mourning. I direct that the dip lomatic representatives of the United aiates In all foreign countries display the flag at half mast for 10 days; that for a like period the flag of the Unit ed States be displayed at half mast at all forts and military posts and at all naval statons and on all vessels of the United States. "I further order that on the day of the funeral the executive departments of the city of Washington be closed and that on all public buildings throughout the United States the na tional flag be displayed at half mast "Done at the city of Washington, this, the third day of July, 1905, and of the independence of the United States of America the one hundred and twenty-ninth." •THEODORE ROOSEVELT."

MUTINEERS CONTROL BATTLESHIP KNIAZ [POTEMKINE ROAMS THE BLACK SEA. Admiral Kruger and Officers Could Not Depend on His Own Men to Capture Pirate Ship, So Withdrew— Fires Drawn Beneath His Own Shipa and Officers and Sailors Go Ashore. St. Petersburg, July 4. —The unpre cedented spectacle of a powerful mod ern battleship cruising around in the Black sea in the hands of a crew who under the rules of International law can not be regarded as other than pi rates, and of the admiral in command of the rest of the euxlne fleet frank ly confessing his inability to cope with the situation and ordering the fires of his warships to be drawn, has stupefied the Russian admiralty. The whereabouts of the errant bat tleship Knlaz Potemklne lb unknown here; no plans for capturing her have been devised, and the policy of nonin terference seems to be at present In vogue. The situation would make a good libretto for a comic opera were not the elements of the plot so seri ous. Dispatches from Odessa and Sebas topol, which were confirmed by the ad miralty, clear up fully the present situation. The Knlaz Potemklne has sailed from Odessa and is now at large, and her crew, reinforced oy sympathizers from shore, is still In control of the vessel. On the Georgi Pobiedonosetz, which cast in its fortunes with the Knlaz Potemklne after its arrival at Odessa and landed its officers, the more loyal or more timorous portion of the crew again gained tne upper hand and agreed to surrender and disarm the ship. The rest of the squadron returned to Sebastopol without venturing to take up the gauntlet thrown down by the mutineers on the Kniaz Potem kine, and Admiral Kruger, after a council of war, finding that he could not depend on his crews, ordered the fires drawn beneath the boilers of his ships and gave permission to all the disaffected otucers and sailors to quit the vessels and go ashore. The sailors of the Ekaterina 11. were known to be so mutinous that the battleship was left behind when the squadron started for Odessa, the whole crew dismissed and the ship disarmed. The Kniaz Poiemklne, which was steering a southerly course when she left Odessa, would within a few hours be south of Russia limits and may next be heard from at some Balkan or Turkish port. FINANCES OF THE NATION. Secretary Shaw Issues a Treasury Review of Year. Secretary uhaw has given out the following statement reviewing the finances of the country for the fiscal year just closed: "The actual deficit for the year Just closed iB In round numbers $24,000,000, or $6,000,00 more than the official es timate submitted In the last annual report of the secretary of the treasury. In the preparation of this estimate, however, an error of $7,500,000 was made, growing out of the loan of that amount to the Ixiulslana Purchase ex position. By some Inadvertence, the amount of this loan was deducted twice. The estimated deficit, but for this Inadvertence would have been $22,500,000. "Customs receipts are about $3,000,- 000 In excess of the estimate. There fore receipts have been about $2,500,- 000 In excess of the estimate. "In expenditures the following items are worthy of note: "The deficiency In postal receipts Is $2,000,000 in excess of the estimate; there has been expended on the isthmian oanal $1,000,000 more than estimated, and on irrigation projects $750,000 more than estimated; there has been paid under an appropriation for French spoliation and other claims $750,000 more tuan estimated; the war department has expended on rivers and harlwrs $500,000 more than esti mated; there has been expended for the Indian service $1,300,000 more than estimated, $750,000 of which was attorney fees not anticipated. There has been paid in pensions $1,750,000 more than estimated and on interest $500,000 more than estimated. "On the other hand the navy depart ment has expended on constructive work about $4,500,000 less than esti mated. "The favorable showing for June has been in no degree the result of manipulation." China has taken steps to stop the anti-American agitation and boycott againßt American goods. Minister Kockhill, at Pekln, cabled the state department that after repeated and urgent representations from the American legation orders have been Issued from the Chinese foreign of fice to all viceroys and governors tn the empire to cease anti-American agi tation and attempted boycott against American goods.

Describing the Incendiar ism, a correspondent says: "I saw women and young girla help ing to carry bundlea of straw and Are wood, saturated them with parafllne and then lighting torches which were thrown in through the small doors and windows until the whole harbor front Was aflame. A mob of from 12,000 to 15,000 persons fell back slowly and re sistlngly before the rifle volleys of the troops until the machine guns were brought Into action when they mowed down the frenzied ranks." The correspondent estimates the number killed at 1400 without count ing those burned to death. King Now in Whit* Top Hat At the races this year King Edward appears In the height of fashion. He generally wears a silk hat, frock coat, a light vest and gray trousers, a pair of field glasses slung across his shoul ders.

A dispatch from St. Petersburg states that General Sakharoff, minis ter of war, has resigned. NORWAY ON VERG£ OF WAR. Ready to Give Battle to Sweden if Provoked. Christianla, July 5. —There is a feel lug here that hostilities between Swed en and Norway are more a question of hours than days. One report is cur rent that a Swedish squadron is on its way here, and that its commander has been instructed to attack all Norwe gian shipping wherever found. The government of Sweden took the first hostile step Suuday when an or der was issued declaring Stockholm, Karlston, Uothenburg and Farosend naval ports, from which all foreign warships must be excluded. The armies of Norway and Sweden now confront each other on the fron tier. and any simple act is likely to precipitate battle. In fact. It Is slated, apparently upon the best of authority, thai Sweden Is secretly mobolizlng her forces. TAFT NOT TO BE PREMIER. Says He Doea Not Expect State Port folio. Omaha.

Commercial conditions seldom change at midsummer, and quiet mar kets usually prevail unlesß there is a movement with the commodities of exchange In response to crop reports. The past week has proved no excep tion to the general rule. Seasonable merchandise has gone Into distribution freely at retail, duplicate orders for summer lines are more numerous with Jobbers, now that the weather has become settled, and traveling salesmen send In substantial contracts to wholesale dry goods houses for fut ure delivery. Manufacturing plants are well employed for this time of the year, when It Is customary to make Inventories and repairs, but next week the Idleness wli. be further Increased, after which a general resumption of activity is anticipated. This confidence in the future and the increasing promptness of mercan tile collections are the best features of the trade situation. Railway earn ings thus far reported for June were 7.9 per cent larger than last year, and foreign commerce at this port for the last week showed gains of $2,832,270 in exports and (45,339 In Imports, as compared with 1904. In the hide mar ket no change has occurred, but for mer conditions have been more pro nounced, light sides gaining strength, while heavy skins were weakened. Although the tone of the market for hides remains easy, no further conces sions are reported. Failures last week were 249 In the United Btates, against 219 last year, and 16 In Canada, compared with 11 a year go. Senator Must Appear.

It Reported That 30u Men Deserted From the Battleship Kniaz Potem kine During Saturday and Asked Mercy From Authorities, Leaving Mutineers Short Handed to Fight. St. Petersburg, July 3. —"Tho St. Andrew's Hag is now flying from the masthead of the Kniaz l'otemkine." An Odessa dispatch reports in these words the surrender of the battleship by her mutinous crew, and adds t ha* a steamer has gone out to the Kniaz i'otemkine with a supply of provisions. This was the first definite statement received in St. Petersburg regarding the surrender of the battleship, and the dispatch, which leaves so many details yet to be cleared up, is accept ed here with caution, and until It is fully establlsned that an adequate guard has been placed aboard the bat tleship and command restored to her commissioned officers, apprehension that the revolt will break out again will not be ended. During Saturday St. Petersburg was without definite knowledge as to wnether the crew of the Knlaz Potem klne had returned to Its allegiance or whether the revolt still continued, and perhaps nad spread to other ships, and the inability of the government to announce an end of tne uprising gave rise to the darkest reports. The few dispatches which arrived yesterday through the official agency were evi dently carefully censored and lacked reference to the mutiny, but the de tails they have about the hurried em placement of coast artillery In posi tions commanding the harbor and of the revolt continued. Altogether, it seems apparent that the submission of the sailors of the Knlaz Potemklne to Vice Admiral Kru ger's squadron on Friday was only temporary and that the mutineers hail changed their mlndß after their re turn to the harbor and the departure of the squadron. Whether the crew of the Georgl Pobledonosetz shared the disaffection is not delinltely known, but the Knlaz Potemklne crew evidently vacillated for a long time as to whether they would continue the long contest ur throw up the sponge. It Is reported here that 300 men deserted from the Knlaz Potemklne during Saturday and threw themselves on the mercy of the authorities, there by leaving the mutineers too short handed to fight and work their ship. The report continued that the Vecltl's crew declined an Invitation to come aboard and join the forces of the Knlaz Potemklne, and that the surren der of the battleship therefore was In evitable. It Is not known what punishment Is In store for the mutinous sailors, though It is reported that the govern ment has decided to hang every fifth man. The chief mutineers, however, who were under the leadership of a former ensign named Makhslutln, es caped to Constantinople, and those re maining are probably only their tools. Cronstadt was fairly quiet yester day. The strike of the longshoremen at one time seemed to be settled, but the employers declared their Inability to pay the wages the commander of the district had promised the work men, and the strike Is still unended. The events at Odessa, I.lbau and Cronßtadt Increase the difficulty of the general situation. UDless the mutiny Is checked by the most signal pun ishment' It is apt to prove contagious. It Increases the urgency for a national assembly as the sole remedy to bring the substantial men of the country back to the government. YELLOW FEVER ON ISTHMUB. Hundreds of Refugees Coming to United State*. New York.—When the Panama steamship Zeguranca came Into port -the brought the largest number of refugees from yellow fever and ma laria that any recent Incoming vessel has yet carried.
