"REPORT THAT RUSSIA WILL AC-
CEPT TERMS OF PEACE.
The HiTcl Will Probably Come on
the Question of Indemnity and

Port in th Pacific Ocean.
Petersburg-, June 12.A well de-
fini'il report was current everywhere
nig-ht, although the Associated
l'ress could not trace its source, that
Uu-v.a had already practically ob
riincd Japan's conditions, ai.-cl that
they proved so surprisingly moderate
mat Russia would certainly accept
them as a basis for negotiations.
There is an infinite amount of gossip
here about Japan's terms, but it is al
most altogether irresponsible, the best
informed members of the diplomatic
'orps, even the British embassy, being
convinced that while the main out
lines are matters of common knowledge
in America and in the chancellories of
Murope, .Japan lias not revealed her
exact terms, even to her ally.
Russia is not likely to be recalci
trant. According to tiie best advices,
she is ready to abandon the whole of
her Manchurian venture and give guar
The rub will come on the question of
indemnity, which, it is the consensus
of opinion in diplomatic circles, Japan
will exact, but if it should be made
moderate and sugar-coated so that it
could be liquidated by the sale of the
Chinese Eastern railway and the ces

the Kwantung peninsula, it might be

guarding a wagon owned b}' Roths

The wagon was passing the corner
of Forty-third and State streets when
one of a crowd of men shouted at the

according to the statements of wit

The bullet struck a coin in Rohl

Just in Time.
Des Moines, Iowa, June 12.Just in
time to stop what would have been the
first legal hanging- in Iowa iu ten
years, an app.-al was filed with the
supreme court in the case of Charles
Rocker of Rock Rapids.
Rocker was to have been hanged at
Anamosa, but a half hour before the
time set the papers of appeal arrived
and a long distance telephone message
was sent to call off the hanging".
The last legal hanging in Iowa took
place at Anamosa in 1895. James Doo
ley, an eighteen-j^ear-old boy was ex
ecuted then. Gov. Jackson signed the
death warrant, but no governor since
that time has done it.

Christiania, Norway. June 8.Nor-
way Wednesday declared her independ
ence from Sweden. She also proclaimed
that King Oscar, ruler of Sweden and
Norway, was dethroned from his king
ship of Norway.
The action was taken at. the session
of the Storthing. Following, it the
Storthing empowered the present state
council to act as a government of Nor
way until further notice, and to ex
ercise the power heretofore appertain
ing to the king.
An address to the king was adopted,
declaring that no ill feeling was enter
tained against him. his dynasty, or the
Swedish nation, and asking him to co
operate in the selection of 'a young
prince of the house of Bernadotte to
occupy the throne of Norway.
Although the action was anticipated,
it caused considerable excitement in
this city, on account of the anxiety as
tc what action the king would take.
The crisis became acute May 26, when
his majesty, after three months' rest,
during which the regency was confided
to Crown Prince Gustaf, resumed the
reins of office.
The council of state immediately
submitted to him the consular bill,
which he. May 2S, refused to sanction,
arguing that any action must receive
the sanction of the mixed council. The
Norwegian council of state thereupon
resigned, and the king refused to ac
cept their resignations, as in view of
the state of public opinion it was im
possible to form a new government.
Demonstrations were held throughout
the country indorsing the action of the
council of state.
The consular bill, while apparently
of little importance, was designed to
open the whole question of foreign af
fairs, which Norway desires to manage
independently of Sweden. I

^Stockholm, Sweden. June 9.King
Oscar has refused "to receive the "depu
tation appointed to present him the
Norwegian storthing's address. The
request that the king receive the depu
tation was sent by the president of the
storthing, M. Berner, who received a
telegram from him reading as follows:
"As I do not recognize the revolu
tionary steps which the storthing in
violation of the constitution and act of
union and in revolt against its king
has unfortunately taken, I decline to
receive the deputation."
Seeking New Ruler.
Copenhagen. June 9.It is reported
that the Norwegian government, in
view of King Oscar's apparently defi
nite refusal to consider the offer of the
storthing to place a prince of the house
of Bernadotte on the throne, has pri
vately approached the Danish royal
family to ascertain if an offer of the
throne would be received by a member
of it. preferably Prince Charles, son
of Crown Prince Frederick. The' gen
eral opinion expressed here is that
such an offer would be refused.
Will Avoid War.
Copenhagen, June 10.King Oscar
is quoted as saying that he would
avoid war at any cost. It is understood
that arrangements are actually being
made for a national convention in
Norway, and this, it is believed, will
inevitably result in the declaration of
a republic. According to well-informed
persons here. Russia and Germany will
refuse to recognize the Norwegian gov
ernment until King Oscar consents to
the disruption of the union.

crops, cattle, and the retarding of busi
ness because of impassable roads,
ruined dams and railway washouts will
be many hundred thousand dollars.

killed by lightning and two persons were
drowned at Chippewa Falls.

greatest, and with continued rain and

threatens the city with greater flood be
