was caiefully uiranged In advance In
order to avoid the possibility of sur-

M. j Nclldoff made a few remarks In
memory of the late M. do Sttial , the
dome ' Uusslan ambassador In Lon
don , and then the rules of the confer
ence , Including publicity for the
plenary sessions , were presented and
The surprise of the session was the
formal reservation by General Horace
Porter , on behalf of the United States ,
of the right to present the question of
the limitation of armaments. Together
with this , he also reserved the right
to introduce the subject of collection
of contiactual debts by force.
While this reservation was mridd
quite naturally , in accordance with a
notice served on Russia during the
preliminary negotiations last spring
and in order that silence now might
not bo construed as acquiescence in
the restriction of the work of the conference -
ferenco to the limits of the Russian
program , It is believed to Indicate a
firm resolve on the part of the Wash
ington government , alter seeing the
trend of the situation hero , to raise
the question latei if it becomes ap
parent that the subject Is going by
It can bo stated positively , however -
over , that no proposition has yet been
formulated by the American delegates ,
but this action has renewed the hope
that the United States would bring up
the question of limitation and has
given great satisfaction to the pacific
Sir Edward Fry also served notice
that Great. Britain reserved the right
to Introduce subjects outside the pro
gram , but less significance Is at
tached to his action.
Another Interesting feature of th
session was Baronvon Blobersteln'a
notification that Germany Intended to
offer the proposition of an Interna
tional prize court , to which appeals
could bo made at the time of n mari
time war and the decision of which
should bo final. General Porter seconded
ended this proposition on behalf ot
the United States and Sir Edward Fry
declared that Great Britain proposed
to advance a project on similar lines.
The fact that the first definite prop
osition submitted to the conference
should emanate from Germany and re
ceive the prompt and cordial support
of the United States and Great Brit
ain created an especially good Improa *
Beyond these two mattqra , the ses
sion was perfunctory In character.
Four committees were created , as prearranged
arranged , and'the rules formulated , ex
cept on permitting countries to vote
by pi'oxy , adopted The United
States wjjs honqroi by wo honorary
presidencies and Mexico , Argentina
and Brazil each obtained recognition.
Elaborate precautions still are be
ing taken 'to ' Insure the safety of the
delegates from anarchltstlc attempts ,
us well as to prevent eavesdropping.
Before the sitting the old castle was
thoroughly searched and all the doors
loading to the Hall of Knights were
goaled. A force of twenty police oc
cupied the cellar underneath , ready to
respond to an electrical call placed
on President Nelldoff's trfble. '
