PEACE ENVOYS REACH AGREEMENT
President Roosevelt Surprised and

Portsmouth, N. H., August -.'- The
long and bloody war between Japan
and Russia is ended. The terms of
peace were settled by M. Witte and
Baron Nomura at the session of the
conference this morning, and this af
ternoon preliminary arrangements for
an armistice were concluded, and the
actual work of framing the "treaty of
Portsmouth" was by mutual agree
ment turned over to Mr. I)e Martens,
Russia,s great international lawyer,
and Mr. Dennison, who for twenty-tire
years has acted as the legal adviser
of the Japanese foreign oflice.
The treaty is expected to be com

S. P. BRINGS SUIT
To Prevent Railroad Commission From
Reducing Rice Rates.
In the declaration filed in the dis
trict court at Baton lRouge by the
Southern l'acific, in their suit against
the Louisiana 1Railroad commission
from making permanent its rates re
cently promulgated on rough and
clean rice. J. T. Kernon and Dene
gre & Blair. attorneys for the plain
tiff, recite the following eight reasons
why the rates should not he made
First--The radical changes propolsed
are not justified by the conditions,
that the existing rates are fair and
reasonable to shippers. permit a free
movement of the trattic and are not
discriminating in favor of any local
ity. In evidence they say the traIliic
has grown from a mere trifle to 200.
000.000 pounds per year.
Second--The rates are lower than
those fixed by the Commission on oth
Third--No complaint was made on
rates on eclean rice, yet reduction on
clean rice is gzreater than on rough.
Fourth- -Tariff makes no allowance
for unfavorable situation of the rail
road company in having to deli ver to
New Orleans by ferry boat.
Fifth-Tariff violates the fundamen
tal principle of rate making, in that it
prescribes the same rate on branches
as on the main line.
Sixth-The tariff imposes on the
road an annual loss of its revenue.
Teventh-R-ates are unreasonable
in that they discriminate in favor of
every other commodity.
Eighth-Rates are unrcasouable be
cause they would not allow the road
enough revenue to pay the cost of
movement of rice.
The secretary of the Louisiana Rail
road Commission has been notified of
the appeal of the Southern Pacific
road in the rice rate case. Copies of
the declaration of the railroad com
pany, in which they claim to new tariff
on rice shipments to New Orleans to
be unjust, have been forwarded to the
Attorney General at New Orleans.
T. Marshal Miller has been select
ed by the Commission to assist At
torney General Guion on the prosecu
tion of the case.
W. M. Barrow, secretary of the
Commission, will hold a conference as
sood as possible with the two attorn
eys. Mr. Barrow is now collecting
Though the Commission purposes
to push the matter, there is no possi
bility of the case being heard before
October, as court does not convene
before that date and there is no possi

the prevention of yellow fever, an'
nounced last iight that owing to cer
tain circumstances over which he had
no control. he had been unable to

therefore he would return to his home

made at a meeting of Dr. Leach's fol
lowers in this city, at the St. Charles
1hotel. There were about .100 persons
present, including a number of ladies.
The meeting was called to order by
Mr. Sidney Story and l)r. Leach was
the first speaker. He explained at
length the purpose of his visit here,
and referring to the letter of Surgeon
J. H. White, printed yesterday. he
made an explanation of the various
statements made against his theory.
Dr. Leach told again of his efforts to
have the federal authorities test the
arcenic theory, all of which were un
successful, although the matter had
been tested in Brazil with favorable
Replying to the statement that sev
eral persons who had taken the arcen
ic tablets were now ill with yellow fev
er, Dr. Leach said he had never stat
ed that the tablets were a positive pre
ventative of the fever, but that in most
cases they served such purposes, and
in all cases persons who had taken
them suffered only a mild attack of
Louis P. Bryant spoke at length of
the efforts made by many citizens to
have Dr. Leach's theory tested here,
and with the opposition met with on
the part of the Marine Hospital Ser
vice and the Orleans Parish Medical
Society. Mr. Bryant read the follow
ing resovutions which were adopted:
lie it resolved, That whilst we de
plore the confession of the state and
city boards of health of their inability
to control the yellow fever in our
midst, that we hereby tender our ever
lasting thanks and appreciation to the
President of the United States for hav
ing so readily come to our rescue.
Further resolved: Wehereby pledge
ourselves to support the federal health
otficers sent here by the President to
take charge of the yellow fever situa
tion, so that the very best results may
be obtained in their efforts in behalf
or our city and state from danger that
may otherwise be a menace. We ask
the people of New Orleans and the
state of Louisiana, regardless of na
tionality, to follow the directions emi
nating through orders and control of
Dr. White, of the Marine Hospital
Service. We implore the people of
New Orleans, who have not yet com
plied with the mosquito ordinance and
all other sanitary conditions, to
double their efforts in obedience there
of. We condem the men who show
any disobedience to the laws of the
city or the suggestions and work of
the U'nited States Marine Hospital
Be it further resolved, That the mo
tive of the people who assembled to
petition the Medical Society of the
parish of Orleans to lend assistanceto
the trial of the arteenization theory of
I)r. Itego Cezar, and advocated by
Dr. I. B. Leach was solely to bring
the matter to a conclusive test and
settle same once for all in the same
manner of trial that miade a fact of the
That the people herein assembled
never ment or mean now to disregard
the fact that the mosquito is a trans
mitter of yellow fever, but were and
are of the opinion that the trial of ar
Scenization can be resorted to in con
junction with other precautionary
measures accepted and taken against
the stegomyia fasciata.
A vote of thanks was tendered Dr.
Leach and the meeting adjourned af
ter adopting a resolution to the effect
that the authorities be requested to
rush to complletion the building of the
