Portsmouth, N. H., Aug. 7.-Af'er fo
a day of activity in the navy yard. or
the finishing touches in preparation
for the peace conference were made
late yesterday afternoon, and every.
thing is now in readiness, both on the
inside and outside of the large new
naval store building, where the plen
ipotentiaries are to be received today
and where they are to hold their daily
sessions. The second floor of the 1)
building is to be occupied by the peace
missions. The conference room is in
the center of the building over the en
trance. Adjoining it on one side is
a suite of three spacious rooms, that n
have been assigned to the Japanese
envoys. On the other side is a re- S
ception room dedicated to the repre- s'
sentatives of the United States gov- S.
ernment. Beyond this is a suite of
three rooms for the use of the Russian
mission. On either side of a corridor
which divides the building are large e
dining rooms, where midday luncheon t
will be served subsequently to the re
spective missions, and in the eastern
dining room Admiral Meade, command- ,
ant of the navy yard, will today serve
a breakfast to the envoys, their suite r
and about sixty invited guests. Two
fire-proof rooms 'have been fitted up
for the storage of documents. The
conference room is imposingly fur
nished. A mammoth table in the
center is surrounded by huge chairs
beautifully upholstered in black lhath
er. On the floor is a costly Persian
rug. At either end of the room are
mahogany tables adapted for clerical
work. The walls of the room are
draped with flags used by the navy a
in making the international code sig
nals. There flags relieve the bare
walls in all of the rooms and are the i
only decorations. Handsome desks,
chairs and tables make all the rooms
appear in elegant dignity. Persian
t rugs are laid upon all the floors. It
has cost the United States govern
ment $15,000 to equip the quarters for
the conference. Without the building
all appearances of newness has been
removed. The borders of the newly
laid cement walk have been sodded
and the gravel walk leading to the
landing 1000 feet has been put in re
s pair. Everything at the landing stage
has been made shipshape.
Every available room in the hotel
Swhere the missions are to be quar
Stered has been taken. The city is
Sfilled with a small army of newspaper
r correspondents representing, in addi
tion to the press associations and the
