on and. M. do Martens worked until
8 o'clock Wednesday night on tho
draft of tho treaty. Thoy completed
llio wording of tho prenmblo ahd throo
articles and woro discussing tho ar
ticles relating to tho cession of tho
Chjnoso Eastern railway when thoy
adjourned.' Up to 1 o'clock Wednes
day night neither tho Japanese em
peror or tho Russian' omporor had re
npondpd to tho appeals Rent by their
respective plenipotentiaries asking for
tho conclusion of an nrmlatlco.
Actual work of drafting the "treaty
of Portsmouth" began Wednesday. It
was dono by M. do Martens and Mr.
Dcnnlson, acting as legal advlBers for
tho respective sldos. While tho "bases"
of pcaco havo been accepted by tho
plenipotentiaries, considerable detail
remains to bo worked out In tho ela
boration of tho artlckH of tho treaty.
This In especially truo In regard to
tho nrtlclos dealing with tho Chlneso
Eastern railway and tho surrender of
tho loasoa of tho Llaotung peninsula
and Port Arthur and Tallenwnn

Poking and who has Intimate knowl

matters, la assisting M. do Martens.
A very anomalous situation exists
as to tho Impression crented by tho
conclusion of pcaco. While tho outsldo
world applauds, In Japan thero Is evi
dently great disappointment In tho
terms, and In Russia, whero It would,
seom that thero should bo universal
rejoicing ovor tho great diplomatic
victory M. Wltto has won, tho govern
ment seems to havo rocolved It cold
ly. With tho people l. will make M.
Wltto a great and popular flguro and
add to his laurels, but at court evi
dently tho very victory that M. Wltto
has achieved makes It all tho more
blttorly roscntod. It Is an open socrot
that when liio omporor appointed M,
Wltto chief plenipotentiary tho "mili
tary party" expected him to fall. Thoy
did not want pcaco and It was freely
predicted In St Petersburg when M.
Wltto loft thnt ho bad been given an
Impossible mi-sslon. They expected him
to fall In tho negotiations or to "mako
a bad poaco," and either would havo
spelled polltlral ruin. Instead, upon
tho vory terms upon which tho em
peror told Mr. Meyer ho would mako
peaco and upon which tho military
' party did not bollevo It possible for
penco to bo negotiated, M. Wltto suc
ceeded in securing a treaty lionorablo
and under tho circumstances favor
able to Russia. This has evidently
only exasperated his enemies tho moro
and Intrlguo Is again at work to dis
credit him. SInco Japan was In a con
ciliatory mood they 'Bay ho made a

In tho Negotiations Japan Yields
Many Important Points Russia
Pays No Indemnity and Gets Half 1
of Sakhalin.
PORTSMOUTH, N. H. Tho long
nnd bloody war between Japan and
Russia is ended. Tho terms of pcaco
woro settled by M. Wltto and Baron
Komura at tho Besslon of the confer
ence Tuesday morning, and in tho nf
ternoon preliminary arrangements fof
an armlBtico were concluded and tho
actual work of framing the "treaty of
Portsmouth" was by mutual agreement
turned ovor to Mr. Do Martens, Rus
sia's great international lawyer, nnd
Mr. Donnlson, who for twenty-flvo
years has acted as tho legal adviser of
the Japanese foreign office. Tho treaty
is expected to bo completed by tho end
of tho week.
This happy conclusion of tho confer
ence, which a week ago would havo
been shipwrecked hnd it not been for
tho heroic Intercession of President
Roosovolt, was sudden and dramatic.
For tho sako of peaco, Japan, with
tho maguanimlty of a victor, at tho
last moment yielded everything still
in issue.
Russia refused to budgo from tho ul
timatum Emperor Nicholas had given
to President Roosevelt through Am
bassador Meyer. No Indemnity under
any guise, but an agreement to divide
Sakhalin and relmburso Japan for tho
maintenance of tho Russian prisoners
wero his last words. They had been
repeatedly reiterated in M. Wltte's in
structions and In the form of a writ
ten reply to tho Japaneso compromiso
proposal of last Wednesday, they woro
delivered to Baron Komura this morn
ing. M. Wltto went to tho conference
declaring ho was powerless to change
tho dot of an "1" or the cross of a
''t" in his instructions. Emneror
Nicholas' word had been given not
only to him, but to President Roose
velt, tho head of a foreign Btaie. When
Baron Komura, therefore, first offered
the new basis of compromiso outlined
in tho Associated Press dispatches last
night (the complete renunciation of
Indemnity coupled with a proposition
for the redemption of Sakhalin at a
price to be fixed by a mixed tribunal
consisting of representatives of tho
neutral powers, in fact, if not in
words, tho solution offered by tho
president), M. Wltte again returned a
non possumus.
It was what M. Wltte termed In his
Interview with tho Associated Press
tho "psychological moment." M. Witto
did not flinch. Ho expected a rupturo
and, as ho oxprcssed it afterward, ho
was utunned by what happened. Baron
Komura gave way on all tho disputed
points. With the prescience that has
enabled tho Japaneso to gauge tho
mentnl processes of their adversaries
on tho field of battlo and upon the
sea, they had realized in advance that
pcaco could be obtained in no other
way. They had warned their govern
ment President Roosevelt had ad
vised Japan that it meet tho Russian
position rather than tnko the responsi
bility of continuing the war for the
purpose of collecting tribute. Tho
mikado, at the session of the cabinet
and elder statesmen yesterday, had
sanctioned the final concession. When
Baron Komura yielded tho rest was
mero child's play.
Articles X and XI (interned war
ships and the limitation of Russia's
sea power in the far east) wero with
drawn. Japan agreed that only that
portion of tho Chinese Eastern rail
road south of Quanchontzl, tho posi
tion occupied by Oyama, should bo
ceded to Japan. Both sides, once tho
deadlock was broken, wanted a "Just
nnd lasting" peace, and In that spirit
it was decided to practically neutral
ize Sakhalin.
President Approves Sentence.
WASHINGTON Tho president has
approved tho sentence in tho court
martial case of Firot Lieutenant G. S.
Richards Twenty-third infantry, who

OYSTER BAY, L. I. In a letter to
Baron Komura, the peaco envoy of
Japan to the Washington peaco con
ference, tho president extended his
congratulations thus:
"Oyster Bay, N. Y. My Dear Baron
Komura: I havo received your let
ter of August 29. May I ask you to
convey to his majesty, tho emperor
of Japan, my earnest congratulations
upon tho wisdom and magnanimity ho
and tho Japanese peoplo havo dis
played. I am sure that all civilized
mankind share this feeling with me.
Sincerely yours,
Greatest Man In His Time.
BALTIMORE, Md. In response to
tho request for a statement relative
to President Roosevelt's part in the
conclusion of peaco between Japan
and Russia Cardinal Gibbons said:
"President Roosevelt is a great man,
tho greatest in his time. Ho is first
in peace and first in tho hearts of his
countrymen. Ho is the biggest man
In this contury, becauso ho has been
tho means of bringing to an end a ter
rible war. I admire him for his great
work and the nations will bless him."
