Washington.' June 28. Russia has
given reassurance of its intentions in
the peace negotiations by placing the
president in possession of the tenta
tive selection of her plenipotentiaries,
as follows: M. Nelidoff, the Russian
ambassador at Paris, and Baron Ro
sen, the newly appointed Russian am
bassador at Washington. Russia thus
having t^aken the initiative, it is be
lieved that Mr. Takahira, the Japanese
minister, during his call at the White
House yesterday, informally told the
president that Japan's selections, also
tentative, were Baron Komura, the
Japanese minister for foreign affairs,
and Kogoro Takahira, the Japanese
minister at Washington.
Announcement Withheld.
Official announcement of the names
of the plenipotentiaries is withheld for
several reasons.
M. Nelidoff's health may not permit
him to make the trip, and pressure of
official work may necessitate the pres
ence in Tokio of Baron Komura. Mr.
Takahira and Baron Rosen are regard
ed as the certainties and the belief is
that unless something unforeseen
should occur, both Russia and Japan
will consent to the official announce
ment of the personnel of the Washing
ton conference within a few days.
Armistice Not Necessary.
Interest regarding an armistice has
largely diminished in the last few
days because of the receipt of informa
tion that the rainy season is beginning
in Manchuria. It is believed here that
this will serve the purpose of an armis
tice in preventing a clash before t"he
convening of the conference in Au
gust'". Moreover, the informal sound
ings initiated by the president at To
kio and St. Petersburg did not yield
much hope for successful negotiations
looking to an armistice until after the
plenipotentiaries meet. If Japan is
then convinced of the serious desire of
Russia for peace she will readily con
sent to an armistice

abstains from giving any information
regarding the results reached. It is
semi-officially stated that the German

hence the government and press re

papers that the German government
refuses to take into consideration ev

and throughout the German press a
growing impatience is manifested at
wrhat is regarded as a British attempt

Washington, June 27.—By direction
of President Roosevelt action has
been taken by the administration
which not only will facilitate the land
ing in this country of Chinese of all
classes, but will also eliminate from
the emigration bureau such adminis
trative features as have been the sub
ject of criticism by Chinese. It' is the
declared intention of the president to
see that Chinese merchants, travelers,
students and others of the exempt
classes shall have the same courtesy
shown them by officers of the immigra
tion bureau its is accorded to citizens
of the most favored nation.
Representations have been made to
the president that, in view of alleged
harsh treatment accorded to many
Chinese seeking a landing in the Uni
ted States, the commercial guilds Gf
China have determined to
Institute a Boycott
on American manufactures. The rep
resentations, backed by the authority
of the American Asiatic society and
commercial bodies throughout the
country, induced the president to
make an investigation of the situation
with a view to remedying the evils
complained of, if they were found to
exist. The subject was discussed
thoroughly by the cabinet and the
president took it up personally with
Secretary Metcalf of the department
of commerce and labor, who has super
vision of the immigration bureau.
As a result of the inquiry, orders
have been issued to the 'diplomatic and
consular representatives of the United
States in China by the president him
self that they
Must Look Closely
to the performance of their duties un
der the exclusion law and see to it
that members of the exempt classes
coming to this country are provided
with proper certificates. These cer
tificates will be accepted at any port
of the United States and will guaran
tee the bearer against any harsh or
discourteous treatment. Such treat
ment, indeed, will be the cause of the
instant dismissal of the offending of
ficial, whoever he may be.
In addition to the president's orders,
Secretary Metcalf has issued instruc
tions to the immigration officers
which, it is believed, will remedy the
difficulty heretofore complained of by
the Chinese government and individ
uals. It is anticipated that the prompt
action taken by this government to
meet the objections made by the
Chinese will eliminate the possibility
of serious trade difficulties between
China and the manufacturers of thi9
