Tho Jap ineso proposal to restrict Russia in bar fnturo nnvnl armament in tho Pacific, which Is up for discussion today, is a question Russia considers especially humiliating.

Sho Is not suing for peace, and if poaco is to coiuo out of these negotiations Jnpan must respect l'r nuvcrwirry, ns Russia respects Ja pan." Komura listened with stoical silence nnd Impnssivo countcuanco, and io responso denied that Japan had any desiro to humlliato Russia, or exact terms that tho world would consider unreasonable.

In former years, when tho emperor was yountr. nnd both the empress and tho ill-fated crown prince wero living, the doraonstrntlons of popular love or- ten assumed a rather boisterous char acter, especially in Vienna and othor largo oltles, with a predominant Teu tonic population. The death of tho crown prince, whieh shattered so many fond hopes put a damper upon the subsequent celebrations of tho empe ror's birthday, and this condition nnt urally boeame more acute after the death of Empress Elizabeth. The character of the celebrations beeame more subdued and dignified, but far more expressive of the universal reeling of love aud sympathy for the cruelly bereaved monarch. Aside from its purely official features the celebration today boro little resem blance to former celebrations, although popular sentiment for tho Kaiser was Drobablr stronger than ever. Special thanksirivinc services were held in thei morning in every church in the morvj nrchy. Here, in Vlcnnn, tho pont'ilcnl high mass at St. Stephen's attracted the largest crowds, nmong them mnny hundreds of foreigners.

Lntor in tho dny tho omporor received tho members of tho imperial household, tho ministers of tho cabinet, tho pre siding officers nnd dclegntions from tho Imperial pnrlinmont, tho rclchstng nnd tho Austrian and Hungarian diets. Ho nlso gnvo nudionco to numerous dele gations representing tho army, navy tho vnrious flscnl departments nnd dep utations of civic orgnnlzntlons from nil pnrts of tho monnrchy. Tho dny wns gonernlly observed ns 11 holiday.
