Baltimore Chamber of Commerce Notifies World
That All Trade Will be Cared for
Baltimore. Feb. 12. A most cheer
ful advance Raltimoi o has been made
in emerging fioin the dark cloud cast
un it by tlic great conflagration of
last Sunday ar.d Monday. An inci
dent that inspired the whole commuid
ty with tremendous confidence was the
resrujptiou of business by the batiks,
depesits being received and checks
honored in the usual way. It would
be di!licult to estimate the volume
of tiausaitions in that respect, but
according to the leading bankers it
was gratifyingly large in view of ex
isting coiulit ions.
The knowledge that Baltimore's ter
minal facilities are intact, and that
the grain elevators were not involved
in the tlery tornado has also'served
to promote a popular conviction that
the situation is not so dark as it h::s
heretofore appeared. Indeed the op
tiadstie feeling is manifestly growing
that the calamity, though harrowing
in every .detail, will give the city an
opimrt unity to readjust itself on new
and more modern plans.

Many merchants and manufac turers
whose places of business were swal

signed contracts for rebuilding, and
there are on all sides the greatest
siciis of activity in this respect. AM
are simply waiting for the city to
clear the streets of debris and give
permission to the owners of the ground
ti take possession.
Thc" matter of accepting am from
other cities has not yet been finally
decided upon, according to Mayor Mc
I.aie. The tire did rot reach the resl
dental section of the city, and there
is no actual destitution at this time.
The Indications are thnt the citizens
of Baltimore will be fully able to take
care of all cases of want that might
present themselves. The mayor feels
grateful for the many proffers of aid
from the citizens of this country and
from foreign lands.
Baltimore. Feb. 12. At a confer

citizens committee it was decided no

American Ship Liable
to Seizure by Japan.
Washington. Feb. 12. Will several
hundred tons of beef on the American
steamship Korea, owned by James J
Hill, and which sailed from Honolulu
Feb. S for the Russian stronghold at
Vladivostock. be seized by the Japan
ese as contraband of war? Former
President. Burt, of the Cnion Pacific
and Mrs. Burt, are on the Korea.
This is a problem vitally affecting
this country which' has been brought
up by the dec-la rat ion of war between
Russia and Japan. Russian agent!
purchased the beef from this conn
try last month and loaded it on the
Korea, which left this country early
in February for Nagasaki, a stopping
point in the long voyage to Vladi
vostock. where there is an immense
Russian garrison. Now Ihe question
conies up whether the Japanese will
not prevent, this ship from proceed
ing; to Vladivostock or will seize the
beef if she attempts to do so.
The United States lias put itself
very squarely on record as to contra
band of war in a declaration by Pres
ident. McKinley at the beginning of
the war with Spain, which declares
that a neutral flag does not cover con
traband of war. It is international
usage that ships which sail for a
blockaded port or attempt to furnish
the enemy with contraband of war
after war has been declared will be
warned not to do so and will have
their cargoes confiscated if they at
tempt it. There is some question
about the liability to seizure to car
goes which have cleared ports before
the declaration of war. But. as the
Korea has not yet reached Nagasaki
she will be afforded no .protection on
nig in the liarnor. 1 expect' them' to
be ready in three days.
"The wounded officers, Lieutenant
Colonel Zaiontchkovsky, of the artil
lory corps, and Lieutenant Petrof are
doing well. Four of the wounded have
died. A majority of the injured lie-
longed to the c ruiser Pallada. and their
injuries are due to gases from the ex
plosion of a melinite torpedo. A care
ful search by cruisers and torpedo
boats day and night has not revealed
the presence of the enemy."
It is officially announced that no
news has been received here of the
fight at Chemulpo, the landing of Jap
jmese, of the blowing up of a bridge
on the, Manchurian railroad.
The charge is ne.idy here that the
Japanese attack on Fort 'Arthur was
made from Wei-Ilai-Wei en the north
coast of the Shan-Tung peninsula. The
Novoe Vremya bitterly assails threat
Britain, saying: "In allowing Japan
to use the harbor as a basis of opera
tions Great Britain violated the funda
mental principles of neutrality. Wei
Hai-Wel must be regarded hence forth
as part of Japanese territory, and
Jreat Britain has forfeited the right
to participate in any deliberations over
the eventual fate of the harbor." The
Novoe Vremya further holds that the
case is analogous to that of the Ala
bama. London. Feb. 12. It is said at the
foreign office here that the assertion
of The Novoe Vremya. of St. Peters
burg, that the Japanese fleet in its
attack on Port Arthur used Wei-ITal-Wei
as a base for its attack on Port
Arthur is absolutely untrue.
