Mikado* Acting in Interest of Humanity. Yields All Dis nuted Points. Waives Indemnity and Accepts Half of the Island of Sakhalin. Czar and Mikado Save Consented to a Suspension of Hostilities. M. Witte Claims the Result Is a Mag nificent Diplomatic Triumph. Portsmouth, N. H., Aug. 30.—The long and bloody war between Japan and Russia is ended. The terms of peace were settled by Mr. Witte and Baron Komura at the session of the conference Tuesday morning, and in the afternoon preliminary arrange ments for an armistice were concluded, and the actual work of framing the "Treaty of Portsmouth" was by mutual agreement turned over to Mr. De Mar tens, Russia's great international law yer, and Mr. Dennison, who for 25 PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT. (Whose Unceasing Efforts Have Resulted in Conclusion of Peace years has acted as the legal advisor of the Japanese foreign office. The treaty is expected to be completed by the end of the week. For the sake of peace, the Japanese with a magnanimity worthy of their heroic achievements in this war, met the ultimatum of the czar and aban doned their demands, not only for re imbursement for the cost of the war, but for the repurchase of the northern half of Sakhalin, Russia at the same time agreeing to division of the island. The Japanese also withdrew ar ticles 10 and 11 of the peace conditions originally proposed (demand for the surrender of the interned warships and limitation of the Russian naval power in the far east). Japan agreed that only that portion of the Chinese eastern railroad south of Chantfu, the position occupied by Oyama, should be ceded to Japan. Tribute to the President. Before leaving the conference build ing felicitations were exchanged with the president at Oyster Bay. Both Bar on Komura and Mr. Witte telegraphed. The former confined himself to appris ing Mr. Roosevelt of the conditions upon which peace had been concluded. Mr. Witte frankly laid his tribute at the president's feet. In his message he said: "History will ascribe to you the glory," and added the expression of Russia's hearty appreciation of the president's "generous initiative." Mr. Roosevelt replied with words of thanks and congratulation Japanese Statement. The following statement was issued by Mr. Sato on behalf of the Japanese plenipotentiaries: "The question of the final disposition of the island of Sakhalin and the reimbursement to Japan of her war expenses have from the first been issues on which absolute divergence of views existed. The dif ference of opinion upon these points— not one, but both—have frequently threatened the existence of the con ference. But his majesty, the emperor of Japan, responding to the dictates of humanity and civilization, has. in a spirit of perfect conciliation and in the interest of peace, authorized his pleni potentiaries to waive the question and has consented to a division of Sakha lin upon terms which are mutually acceptable, thus making it possible to bring the important work of the con 'ference to a successful issue." A scene of greatest excitement fol lowed the receipt of the news in the lobby of the Hotel Wentworth. The official bulletin was telephoned from the conference-room at the navy yard by Mr. Sato, and like an electric thrill flooded through the room. There were screams of joy. Men threw their hats aloft, women actually wept. Every where there was a delirium of jubila tion. Then there was a rush for the telegraph offices, and in an instant the news was speeding to the remotest cor ners of the earth. Ovation to Russians. Mr. Witte, accompanied by Baron de Rosen^ came to the hotel for luncheon. There was a wonderful demonstration upon their arrival. A great crowd had collected under JJie port cochere of the Annex, where jthe Russians are quartered, and when their automobile drew up the air was torn with fran tic cheers. Hats w*e thrown aloft. Mr. Witte, as he stepped out of the motor car, seemed quite overcome. Too full fdr utterance, he could only grasp and shake the hands that were extended to him. Baron Rosen also was equally moved, and received the con gratulations of the crowd in silence. For about five minutes the two pleni potentiaries were kept upon the porch listening to the incoherent praises of the hotel guests. Although Mr. Witte is not a diplo matist, they declare that he has outma neuvered the Japanese, yielding one by one to the conditions until he forced them into a corner on the main issue of indemnity, and left them no escape ex cept surrender or to convert the war into a war to collect tribute. The Russians declared that diplomatically the Jap anese made their colossal blunder when they agreed to consider the con ditions seriatum. Japs Plainly Disappointed. The Japanese envoys did not return to the hotel until about six p. m., but were met by a larger and more enthusi astic crowd, and the demonstration was greater, even, than that received by the Russian envoys. The little nation was most enthusiastically cheered for the heroic sacrifice she had made in the in terests of humanity. Agree to Armistice. Portsmouth, N. H., Sept. 1.—Russia's consent to a suspension of hostilities reached M. Witte Thursday night in a cablegram from Count Lamsdorff, whom Emperor Nicholas has empow ered to deal with the important phase oi the negotiations. Although Gen. Lmevitch has been informed of the practical conclusion of peace and di rected to hold himself in readiness to open with Field Marshal Oyama the negotiations for an armistice, the order for the suspension of hostilities and the signing of the truce will not go for ward from St. Petersburg until M. Witte has been informed by Baron Komura that the emperor ot Japan has also given his consent and empowered Field Marshal Oyama to conduct the negotiations with the Russian com mander in the field. Japan, through Baron Komura, has agreed to the immediate conclusion of an armistice. At 11 o'clock Thursday night Mr. Takahira went to Baron de Rosen's room and explained that he and Baron Komura had received in structions to arrange terms of an arm istice. Baron Rosen immediately com municated with M. Witte and it is probable that a meeting will be held this morning-for the proclamation of a complete suspension of hostilities preliminary to the arrangement of the details by the two generals upon the battlefield. Why Japan Yielded. Portsmouth, N. H.. Aug. 31.—The fol lowing statement of the Japanese argu ment which governed their decision to waive the question of indemnity can be accepted as authoritative: Japan realized fully she was making a sac rifice for peace, but she was looking to the future. It was not a question of whether the war could be success fully continued, but of whether peace was not now more advantageous to Japan. Japan had already gained all she fought for. It was only the "spoils of war" that remained, and having achieved the real objects of the war she could afford to forego the spoils rather than be placed in the position of fighting for money. While Japan believed she was entitled to the spoils, she felt that her position was so strong, her successes so complete, that she could yield without detracting from the force of her victory. Witte's~"Note to the Czar. St. Petersburg, Aug. 31.—The follow ing is the text of Mr. Witte's cablegram BARON KOMURA. (Chief Peace Plenipotentiary of the Mikado.) to Emperor Nicholas, announcing peace: "I have the honor to report to your majesty that Japan has agreed to your demands concerning the conditions of peace, and that consequently peace will be established, thanks to your wise and firm decision and in strict conformity with the instructions of your majesty. "Russia will remain in the far east the great power which she has hitherto and will be forever. "We have applied to the execution of your orders all our intelligence and our Russian hearts. We beg your majesty mercifully forgive that we have been unable to do more President Receives Joyful Tidings Oyster Bay, N. Y., Aug 30.—In his library at Sagamore Hill, President Roosevelt shortly before one o'clock Tuesday afternoon received the an nouncement that the Russian and Jap anese plenipotentiaries at Portsmouth had reached an agreement, and would proceed at once to conclude the terms of a treaty of peace. The announce ment had not been expected Tuesday. The president at no time during the negotiations pending had abandoned hope of a successful issue of the con ference but he had realized more clear- "J*"""* S 1 ^WHERE PEACE WAS CONCLUDED Building at Portsmouth, N. BL, Where the Russian and Japanese Plenipo tentiaries Agreed Upon Terms for Ending the War. ly than any other one man in the world the enormous difficulties which ^confronted the envoys in their delib erations. The first word came over the tele phone, but the president while ex pressing himself as extremely gratified, hesitated to place too much reliance in the report, preferring to await of ficial confirmation. This reached him at 2:20 p. m. in a cipher dispatch from Portsmouth. By authority and at the request of Baron Komura, the chief envoy of Japan, the dispatch stated: "The plenipotentiaries of Japan have withdrawn their claim for reimburse ment of war expenses, and an agree ment has been reached as to the parti tion of the island of Sakhalin. All main points have been definitely set tled. The plenipotentiaries will now proceed with discussion of details Will Await Signing of Treaty. Oyster Bay. N. Y., Aug. 31.—"WhistTe softly we are getting into the thin tim- M. SERGIUS WITTE. (Russian Peace Envoy Who Has Aocepted Japan's Terms.) ber, but we are not yet out of the woods." This homely admonition rep resents accurately President Roose velt's view of the situation at Ports mouth. Peace is in sight, but yet is not an accomplished fact. Profoundly as he is gratified at the results al ready achieved by the plenipotentiares, the president realizes fully that most important work remains yet to be done. Until that is accomplished, it is scarcely the part of wisdom he thinks, to do more than "whistle soft ly." The importance of the text of the vari ous sections of the treaty is not min imized by the president and he appre ciates thoroughly that obstacles may arise at any moment that might delay seriously the negotiations, or possibly wreck them entirely. The woods will not be cleared entirely until the treaty is signed and sealed. Crowned Heads Wire Roosevelt. Oyster Bay, N. Y.. Aug. 31.—Crowned heads of the world unite with distin guished statesmen of America and Eu rope in according the glory of peace between Russia and Japan to President Roosevelt. Throughout Tuesday night and Wednesday telegrams of congratu lations poured in upon the president in a great flood. They came from per sons of high degree and of low, and from all quarters of the civilized world. Czar Thanks President. Portsmouth. N. H., Sept. 1.—News of the receipt by President Roosevelt of a cablegram of thanks and con gratulations from Czar Nicholas has put the pessimists to utter rout. Those who could see no prospect of peace at any time during the conference, and who Wednesday predicted that Russia would repudiate the terms and plunge again into war, have had the last prop for their pessimism knocked from un der them. The cablegram received by the presi dent at Oyster Bay is as follows: "Peterhof, Alexandria, Aug. 31.— President Roosevelt: Accept my con gratulations and warmest thanks for having brought the peace negotiations to a successful conclusion, owing to your personal energetic efforts. My country will gratefully recognize the great part you have played in the Portsmouth peace conterence. "NICHOLAS." The Peace Terms.
