Japan Will Never Yield. London, Fob. 2. One of tho high oat Japanese officials In London, who uk Unnn tntimntolv acaunlntcd with ovory possible detail of tho Russo- Japanese negotiations up 10 inc pre ont, mado tho following statement last night: "I am convinced that the delay In RnnHlnir Russia's roDly Is not for the purposo of onabllng tho Russian gov ernment to mako further preparations tor war. but that Count Lamsdorff Is honestly trying to bring tho matter in rUanntn to nn amicablo settlement. Tho dolay clearly means that a final struggle Is going on botween tho peaco and war parties In Russia. I hone, and I think I may add that I believe, tho peaco party will triumph. Tho crux of tho wholo matter Is Rus sia's assurances regarding Chinese, sovereignty over Manchuria. On oth er points Japan may agree to certain modifications, but unless Russia gives an assurance, binding and in writing, regarding Manchuria, Japan -will break off tho negotiations and adopt measures to safeguard her Interests, "Japan Is sincerely anxious for peace, notwithstanding reports to the contrary, and If Russia gives tho very rcasonablo assuranco asked for there will bo no war. Oothcrwlse peace cannot bo maintained." TWO OBLIGING MEN, EncU Warn the Victim In n Street Oar Fare Trnmnctlon. It was In n Boston street car. When the car Jtopped at n crossing, n Indy got up and went to tho door. As she roo there wis tho chink of a coin on the floor, but before It occurred it any one to stop ber she was out of the car and across the street. Two ladles who had sat next to her looked with anx ious indifference op tho floor. One of them leaned slightly forward, but slid nothing. Just as tho conductor was reaching for the bell rope a young man spied the coin and dashed out of tho car. He cnucht tho Indy who had left Lthc car, handed her the coin, ran back, caugnt mo step or tno car as tnc mo tors begun to sing In crescendo and sat down breathless. Ono of the two ladles opposite him leaned forward and said coldly, "Young mnn, what did you do with tho nickel I dropped?" Tho pas sengcrs tittered. An old man at the other end of the car turned to his neighbor. "That reminds me," he said, "of something that happened to my wire yenrs ago. "It was before tho days of cenduct: ors, when we used to drop our nickels Into n slot, and tbey ran down a groove to the box behind the driver, "My wlfo hud stnrted out wjth a lit fto change nud oue of thoso trouble some five dollar goldpleces which U3ed to be more commonly lu circulation than they are now. Her eyes were not good, und jo she wus nervous about her goldpleco and had It on ber mind nil tuo way uowutowu. "When she took u car for home, sh mot a friend nud grew interested In conversation with her. 8ho put her coin In tho slot nbscntmlndedly. Tn driver turned as Ittruck tho box. You remember the coin fell into a glass compartment Urst, nud then the driver pushed a lever which sent It into tho strong box below. "As my wlfo beard the click of tho lever she thought of her flvo dollar goldpleco. She looked In her purse. Sure enough, It was gone. Sho went forward and spoko to tho driver. He snld he hadn't looked very carefully, but he thought tboro wore only three nickels In the glnss recentapln wimn u pushed the lever. "My wlfo Insisted. Tho driver said If she would rldo to the end of tho line the iiiHhler nt the stntlon would open tho lm.. This meant a Journey of two - miles beyond our street, and iuy wife was lu u hurry. "Ati old gentleman who sat by the door nld he was going to tho end of the line nud offered to glvo her $1 Ki cent und get the goldpleco ut the sta tion. My wlfo thiuikod him nnd took tho money. When sho got home, bb found tho live dollar goldpleco in tho lining of her purse. "Next day I went to the station. TUt cashlor snld uu old goutloiuau had mode htm open tho box. Thoro was no goid piece. The old gontlemuu had loft lu u rage, refusing to give bis nemo, lie sold he hud been swindled nnd did not waut to lo known for a fool.
