MEf AT DOCK BY BARON ROSEN Chief Russian Plenipotentiary's In structions Are Elastic Peace Is De- | slrable , but Unreasonable Termi Will Not De Accepted. New York. Aug. 3. Clothed with plenary powers , personally prepared mid signed l > y his sovereign , Sorgius WItte , Russia's limiting plenipoten tiary to the Washington conference , landed beie trom the Kaiser Wllhelm der Ctios-so ab quietly and democratic ally as the most humble of his follow pasfMigeis. Mr. Lodygonsky , llus sian consul genotul , went down the 1 harbor In a revenue cutter olllclally to greet the distinguished envoy and was icieived by M. Witte on deck while the KniFcr Wllhelm was at quai-- antlne. Accomiianying the consul Eoneial weie Haion Sclillpi-enbach Kussi.in consul general at Chicago ; Baron Sihill'iig , Uusslan v co consul at New York , and Mr. WIIonKine. Uus elan financial agent at laslilngton , who was tlie bearer ol' ' ° < J'imt di patches tiom St. Peters , < o M. " \Vitte. The latter pii.mpti. ? fo - > A , * read and quietly put those com . t tlons in his pocket. * Awaiting M. Wltto at the dock was Uaron Rosen , Russian ambassador at Washington , with his first secretary ol mbassy , Mr. Hanson. Daron Rosen came on board as soon as the ship reached the dock and cordially greet' d his confrere and the members of his suite. After ten minutes conver atlon , during which the majority of the passengers landed , M. Wltte came down the gang plank on the arm of Karen Rosen , followed by his suite , but soon found his passage blocked by the crowd , who cheered , and M Wltte , smilingly , acknowledged tha greetings by repeatedly lifting his hat Several policemen soon came to his rescue and cleared a passage to the automobile which was awaiting the party outsldo the dock. Midway down the pier the procession was again stopped , this time , however , by a delegate from the Slavonic society of New York , who presente'd fc Wltte with an address. The Russian envoy made a brief but cordial response , thanking the society for its gieeting and also Cor the cordial welcome he iad received trom another delegation which boarded the Kais-cr Wilhelm off Quarantine , having gone down the har bor on a tux. Soon aftoi the ship left Quarantine , M. Witte , sui rounded by a largo gioup of newspaper men , who came down the harbor on the icvonue cutter , and by as many ot the pas.sengeis as could crowd around him , called to his sli'.o Professor De Mai tens , a member o ( his suite , and handed to him a state ment With the direction that he de liver it in Engllbh as the greeting ot M. Witte on his ai rival In this coun try. Piofessor Do Mai tens read the greeting In a clear voice and at its conclusion M. Witt" received a heartj ovation , vvl' h evidently pleased hlri and which he acknowl > Igoil by sev eral bo\\s , and then vuilKod away f one side ot the ship to look at the statue of lib'ity. M. V ittc's . , Cresting. "For the irlo-c'.ly gicetlngs of the Ameilcan " firt nnw-imp"rs upon my visit to th ° ho ! p'.taljlo shoies of t'-e United Sta'fs , I offer my hutt'f > 't thanks. This kind attent'nn louche ? me all the more profoundly Localise I reali/.e the vastness of the power wielded by the press of the United States and admire the keen intelli gence with which It is uniformly di rected. I am glad to be able to add that I also appreciate the ethical worth of the alms for the attainment of which that power Is so often and so successfully employed. One of the noblests of these aims Is the estab lishment of peace and friendship among nations , and It Is to the praise worthy efforts of the people of the United States In this direction that my Tlslt to the new world Is attributable. For It Is in compliance with the American people's desire for peace , of which President Roosevelt was the authorized exponent , that his majesty , the czar , has empowered me to come hither and ascertain the conditions which our gallant adversary deems necessary and adequate as a basis for peace negotiations. I need hardly point out that It Is my ardent desire that the two chivalrous foes , who firsi became acquainted on the field of bat tie , may have found In each others' sterling qualities motives powerful enough to cultivate that acquaintance.- ship until It ripens Into lasting friend ship. Mernvhile , however , the terms offered muct first bo ascertained , weighed and judged admissible by Russia before she can proceed to form al negotiations. Hitherto , ns you are aware , it was customary in cases like this to settle all such preliminaries befom the meeting of the plenipoten tiaries , whose task it was to como tea a final agreement on the matters un der discussion. Now the very fact that his majesty , the czar , consented to take a course Involving departure from this ancient diplomatic usage and to approach a mission to learn the na ture of our bravo enemy's terms , Is an eloquent token of the friendly foellug wbth he and his Kubjoc ts continue to ( hnMi lownids the people of thn t'nlteil Stales. 1 say continue to cher ish , because at no epoch In our hi * toiy have our traditional t elation * < vlth this gieat republic boon other Ihan cordlr.l. And now I should like to say , aye , and to piove to jour people ple who live less In the past than In the picsont and the tuluio , that It 19 Ilic rcivent wish of the emperor and the people of Russia futthoi to sttenijlheu the ties of friendship which linvo hitherto subsisted be tween the two nations. It Is In vlrtun of that siiirere deslie that his maj esty , the czar , waiving all other con sldoratlons , has unhesitatingly accept- cd the ooid.al Invitation of > our tlrst citizen and genial leader. And If my mission should prove in all other re spects barren and the endeavor to find a common basis for peace negotiations should fall lor the time being , the sig nal proof of friendship given by his majisty , the czar , and the Russian nation would still stand out as a me moiablo event , fiaught , I trust with far-i caching and beneficent icsults tn the two great peoples ot the west and the east. " As M. Wltte does not sneak Kngllsh , he was not pressed' ' for an Interview , but the members of his party were each approached for their views as ta the negotiat'ons. Natuially , on u sub ject of such delicacy , they were rctl' cent , but this much was asceitalntd be.vond a doubt : In scope the power * of M. Wit to , who comes as plenlpoton tlary of Russia to discuss with tha Japanese plcnlpotcnUailcs means ol ending the wai , and piovlded a basis acceptable to Russia Is obtained , to sign the treaty of Washington , equal In every way the powers handed to Baron Komura by the Japanese cm peror. M. Witte brings with him In structions , prepared by his emperor , which outline the general policy which he is authorized to pursue. They nro In many respects elastic , and will aid rather than hamper M. Wltte , provid ed the terms submitted by Japan , In his opinion , appear reasonable. It was also mndo plain by several of M Wltte's suite that ho has not come to the Washington conference to obtain peace at an ' price. Officially , the Rus sian mission Is of course unaware ol Japan's terms and until they have been handc d to M. Wltto by Baron Komura , "Russia will await results pa tlently and without anxiety , " was the way a clo ; o friend of M. Witte ex pressed the attitude of his country. BOYCOTT MOVEMENT GROWS Chinese Prosecuting Systematic Ccm- palgn Against American Goods. Victoria , B. C. , Aug. 3. Advices from Canton state that when a dele gate of the Chinese boycott movement against America was explaining to students In Canton schools the nature of the agitation ho pointed out that many students were tunics made ol American cloth.
