THREE CITIES ARE NOW UNDER
NEGOTIATIONS NEARING FOCUS
Place Will Soon Be Announced and
Armistice Arranged Probabilities ,
That the Plenipotentiaries Will
Meet-In Washington ,
Washington , Juno 15. Gradually
the negotiations for peace In the tar
cast are Hearing a focus. . The ona
point to which the energies of those
directly concerned In them now nro
being directed IB the choice of n place
for the holding of the conference of
the plenipotentiaries of the belligerent
powers. It lu known officially that
tin(30 ( cities now are under consldcru-
tlon by RiiHsIn and Japan. Those
cltleu named in the order of the like *
llhooil of their final selection are
Washington , The Hague and Geneva.
Thus far no decision hns boon reached.
Purls and l/ondon have been eliminat
ed ftoin the equation. It Is under-
ntood that the Russian government ob
jects to an Asiatic city , its preference
being for some ISuropuan capital. Aft
er objecting lo the holding of the con
ference In Purls , the Japanese govern
ment expressed a willingness to con
sider places which afforded adequate
facilities , although It Is assumed that
Japan's preference would bo some far
eastern city , practically within the
theater of war. Finally , however , the
selection seems to have narrowed
down to the three cities named. Ob
jections have boon made by the Japa
nese to The Hague , but it Is not be
lieved that these objections are funda
mental or unalterable. However , as
the situation now Is , Washington ap
pears to bo the city most likely to bo
An announcement of the selection
of the place of holding the conference
is expected within n few days. Thus
far President Roosevelt has acted
merely as an Intermediary between
Russia nnd Jnpnn In the conduct of
the negotiations regarding the selec
tion of n place of conference. Ho Is
In no sense of the term an arbiter In
the matter nnd , nt this tlmo , there is" "
no probability that ho will bo the nr-
biter. It is expected that Russia and
Japan will bo able to reach an agree
ment without the assistance of an ar
biter. Should a deadlock ensue n
condition that Is regarded as quite un
likely It Is not Improbable tlint the
president may be requested by the
two powers to nnmo the place of con-
After the selection of the place of
meeting of the plenipotentiaries , the

LITTLE PROBABILITY OF HITCH
Denied There Is Anything Untoward
In Russia's Reply.
St. Petersburg , Juno 15. Every
'orelqn minister and ambassador now
in St. Petersburg attended a recep
tion given by Foreign Minister Lams-
dorf. Several diplomats wno dis
played some unnecessary nervousness
over the concluding clause of the Rus
sian foreign office's communication to
the Gazette ( saying the Imperial gov
ernment has "no objection in princi
ple" to the meeting of plenipoten
tiaries proposed by President Roosevelt
velt "If the Japanese government ex
presses a desire therefor" ) wore reas
sured after talking with the foreign
minister and learning tlint the com
munication did not reproduce the ex
act text of the note.
The foreign ottlco Is In constant
communication with Count Casstnl ,
the ambassador at Washington , but
beyond the statement that nothing
has been arranged. It vouchsafes no
Information. The chances of the meet
ing taking place In the Un' I States ,
however , seem to have vanished. If
Paris should not bo acceptable to Ja
pan , Russia Is disposed to the selec
tion of The Hague.
It Is understood that the first task
of the plenipotentiaries will be the
conclusion of n limited armistice.
This must come soon In order to avoid
a general engagement , which reports
from the front indicate that Field Mar
shal Oynmn Is already launching.

of the national capital , says a Wash

thusiastic over what she called her
"big Idea , " and after her arrival in

I have a biff Idea surh a bli ? Idta that
only the United States can hold It. It la

In a. few words , which I hope you will bs
BO good us to approve. Rich peopl * from
every one of your forty-live statan must
put together some money oh. e. grtat
deal of money ! to form a capital that
must never bo touched. Then a perma
nent art building must be erected In beau
tiful Washington , and there must bo ex
hibitions evi'ry year.
Artl.its frqm all over the world must be
allowed to send one painting annually
free of duty. Each visitor on entering
the gallery will bo presented with a cata
logue free and will bu expected to check
off the forty-Pvc pointings that most
plcnso and icturn It at the door. Those
girty-flvc paintings having the greatest
number of approval checks will bo select
ed , one for each stnto.
By this method the pictures are select
ed by the public , and In the course of \ tl
time each state In the Union will own Its Hewn
own museum of art. The capital fund
will buy those forty-five paintings an
nually at a good pi Ice , but the bulk of
the money will not be paid to' the artists ,
but only the Interest of the amount ,
which will bo theirs for life. Say the urt-
1st Is a man. The widow will rccelvo the
Intetest. or his children , until they are
twent ; jcai" ? old , when the annuity will
cease and rt\ert to the capital fund.
That seems un Ideal scheme , but
whether It will ever be realized Is '
quite another story. Miss Komlosy's
father was n well known Hungarian
painter , and she has two brothers who
