The crisis in the peace conference has been reached and pesaiinism ia again the note. But the darkest hour la just be fore the dawn, and there it still hope. Predictions of a final rupture today certainly will not be justified uulesi Baron Komura figuratively picks up his hat and announces that it is useless to proceed further. Mr. Witte, at least, will not be precipitate; At to day's session, after article 2 the limi tation ot Russia's naval power in the Far East and article 12 fishing rights on the Russian littoral are disposed of, he will favor an adjournment un til Monday to hear the last word from St. Petersburg. The pessimism last night. is based on the fact that no progrem waa made yes terday. The exchange of views at the morning session on article 9 remuner ation for the cost of the war showed at once that the plenipotentiaries were aa far apart as the poles, and it waa passed over. Article 10 the surrend er of the interned Russian warships waa also passed, not, in the opinion of one of the plenipotentiaries when the Associated Press saw him last night, because it could not have been arrang ed, but because, with the shadow ot the two main points in dispute hanging over the conference, both sides were cautious and preferred to postpone it to the end. Article 2 limitation of sea power is also adjustable after mollification, and article 12 will pres ent no difficulties. So that now the situation is practically where it was when Mr. Witte last Saturday present ed the Russian reply with ita non-poa-sumus to articles 5 and 8 indemnity and Sakhalin. FOR DEEPER COLUMBIA. Trans-Mississippi Congress Realizes Needa of Coast. Portland, Ang. 18. Need of liberal appropriations from congress tor the Columbia river fs obvious to the Trans Mississippi Commercial congress, and when Major W. C. Langfitt, United States engineer, spoke yesterday before that body on the benefits which ade quate appropriations would . bring and pointed out the results the United States engineers could attain, the con gress manifested ita approval with hearty applause. A resolution, calling on the national government to hasten improvement of the waterway will be urged by the Washington, Oregon and Idaho delegations in the congress and no doubt will be adopted. Leaders of the congress in the last two days have frequently remarked that the further improvmenet of the Co lumbia river is the most important river and harbor work before the gov ernment on tne 1'acine coast, and one of the most important in the United States, and they say this whether they come from Texas, where Galveston and Houston nted appropriations, or from Louisiana, where New Orleans requires a deeper Mississippi and a more exten sive levee system is needed, or from Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and the Da kotas, where the Mitsouri river is in need of better chanel, or from the Up per Mississippi region, which desires better waterway to St. Louis. Orleans, is Eastern in TARIFF ON WHEAT REDUCED CONFERENCE FAILS Prevailing View That War la Far East Will Continue. JAPAN ASKED TO MODIFY TERMS Pressure Being Exerted at Toklo by President Roosevelt and the Power. Portsmouth, N. II., Ang. 19. Black pessimism reigns at Portsmouth. Th prevailing view is that the fate of th peace conference is already settled, that it has ended in failure, and that all that now remains ia for the plenipo tentiaries to meet on Tuesday, to whkb day they adjourned yesterday afternoon upon completing the consideration of the Japanese terms, sign th final pro tocol, go through the conventions and bid each other farewell. In other words, that the meeting Tuesday will be what diplomacy calls th "seance d'adieo." But there is still room for hope ot compromise. Neither President Rooee velt nor the powers will see the chance of peace shipwrecked without a fianl effort, and that pressure is being exert ed, eepecialy at Tokio, to induce Japan to moderate her terms, is beyond ques tion. Just what is being done or is to be done has not transpired. King Ed ward is understood to be now lending a helping hand and the financiers ot th world are known to be exerting all their energies. At Tokio and Bt. Petersburg the final issuo will be decided. FIRE DEALS DEATH. Stat Room Inn Destroyed and Two Livss Lost. Portland, Aug. 19.
