the United States, whose sole policy,
he said, was one of peace lor all na
tions. Responding to the speech of wci-
come, delivered by 1 M. Corse, who
Presided. Secretary Taft said that he
hoped the traditional fiiendshlp be
tvveen Russia and America would In
crease and Income, stronger. Ills
present tiip, he said, had given rise
to a number of suggestions, the pur
port of which was far from the truth.
It had been suggested that he was
rounding the world on a diplomatic'
mission to various countries to carry
out : jme ulterior policy of the I'nited '
States, but America's only policy was
the peace ol all nations. Ills only of
ficial function, he continued, was that
connected with the inauguration of
the Philippiue's assembly, and he was
leturning home by vvny of Russin to'
avoid the voyage across the Pacific,

per-onal gratitude Tor the hospitality :
which he had enjoyed on his trans-,
Siberian trip and to assure him that
n deep desire exists on the part of
the Americans ftir the welfare and
piospeiity of Russia.
The secretary declared that Intima
tions that his trip was connected in
any way with n niospeetlve war in,
the Tar east were without foundation
