later, before, tho' arrangements for the I
meeting of the plenipotentiaries finally are
ready. Both Russia and Japan, are moving
with the. utmost deliberation, for the game
of diplomacy now being planned Is of even
greater Importance to each government
than arc the movements of the armies on
tho battlefields. It will require at least a
month for the negotiations of the two gov
Irnmcnts, With their respective Stan's, to
:omo together, the distance from Japan
particularly being so great that a shorter
time scarcely . could be allowed. In' view,
therefore, of all tha conditions and Includ
ing In the equation the factor of unfore
leen delays over matters of minor conse
quence, it seems quite likely that, the con
ference' will not assemble formally before
'.he middle of. August or the first of Sep
mber. . .
Prior to' the formal assembling of the
:onference It Is probable, If precedent be
followed, that a peace protocol will be ne
rotlated. The making of, the protocol will
:ake place beforo the declaration of a for
nal armistice. It has not been learned yet
who will be authorised by the Russian and
Japanese governments to arrange and sign
the protocol. Tho negotiations regarding It
probably will be conducted In Washington
ind It Is regarded us likely that the respec
tive diplomatic representatives of the bel
ligerents will sign the document on behalf
of their governments.
Arrangements for Conference.
It Is too early yet definitely to announce
what arrangements may be made here for
the holding of the conference. It is cus
tomary for the government at whose capi
tal such negotiations are conducted to pro
vide a suitable place and to furnish the
negotiators with adequate facilities for the
transaction of their business. It has been
suggested that a suite of rooms In the
Btate department be fitted up for the ac
commodation of the plenipotentiaries, but
tome doubt has arisen as to whether suf
ficient accommodations could be provided
there tn view of the already crowded con
dition of the department. Another sugges
tion, which was received with favor, was
that provision be made for the conference
In the library of congress. . That magnifi
cent building would afford not only a su
perb room for the general conference, but
also nicely fitted rooms for purposes of
private consultation among the representa
tives of the two governments. As yet,
however, little consideration has been
given to this phase of the situation. It

Pressure on Japan.
Pressure . Is being brought to bear upon
Japan to Induce It to fix the sum It will de
mand as Indemnity for the pending war at
as low a figure in cash as Is possible in the
circumstances. . This pressure Is being
directed specially by European govern
ments, but ' President Roosevelt, It is in
timated in an important quarter, also has
advised tha' Japanese government that
moderation in It demand for a cash in
demnity not only ' would " facilitate the
negotiation of peace terms, but would be
regarded by the powers with particular
favor. The. payment by Russia of any
such cash indemnity as $1,000,000,000 not
only would embarrass seriously the St.
Petersburg . ' government, but probably
would disturb the finances of the entire
western world. Indeed, it . has been sug
gested that such a payment, to all Intents
and. purposn,. might rendor Russia practi
cally . bankrupt.- The opinions and views
of the United States and other powers on
this subject have been permitted to reach
th principal" advisers of the Japanese, em
Such discussion of the question of cash
Indemnity .as has ' occurred has been
merely suggestive of eordltions likely to
be encountered ' by Japan when it etiall
formulate its peace terms. Thus far the
Japanese government has refrained from
Indicating tlio precise form of its terms,

President Confers vrffh Financier,
During the last ten days ' " President
Roosevelt has had conferences with Baron
Kaneko, the Japanese financial agent In
the United States. Baron Kaneko Is one
of the most eminent Oriental financiers,
Both In this country and in Europe, since
the wir began, he has been of inestimable
servlco to his emperor 4n the negotiating
of loans and In watching all the financial
phases of the conlct. In him Japan re
poses explicit confidence in. all matters
pertaining to the fiscal policy of the em
pire. . He Is competent to speak by
authority on all subjects relating to
Japan's finances. For this reason he was
consulted by the president. His confer
ence with the president at the White
House, yesterday, thcro is reason to be
lieve, concern the subject of Japan's cash
demands upon Russia. Such advice as he
might give to his government as to the
cash lndemnltr undoubtedly would re
ceive the de-pest consideration and, very
likely, might be followed
It is well ' understood that the Japanese
government will not make known prior to
trie assembling of the plenipotentiaries the
terms on which she will be willing to con
elude peace. The Japanese emperor is
known to desire that, when peace is con
cluded, it shall be coupled with assurances
of Its permanency. Among well Informed
diplomats it is deemed probable that Japan's
terms, once they are stated, will be re
garded by the world as reasonable and
likely to be acceptable to Russia.
Takahlra'a Second Call.
Minister Takahlra called again at the
White Houso tonight shortly after 9 o'clock
and remained with the president ur.tll 10
o'clock. The minister came at the request
of the president, who communicated to htm
Russia's format acceptance of the selection
of Washington as the scene for the nego
tiations. No details of the conference can
be obtained, but It Is understood that the
questions of date and plenipotentiaries were
under discussion. Japan has Indicated that
it will select two plenipotentiaries and will
be ready to name a third if that number Is
preferred. Although the president has
been advised that Marquis Ito and Baron
Komura and Marshal Yamagata are the
three distinguished persons under consid
eration, the official nominations have not
yet been communicated to him.
Liberals Are Active.
ST. PETERSBURG, June 15.-The liberal
newspapers are taking the decision ' of the
government to make peace, if terms pos-
Ible of acceptance are offered, a a sur
render and are following up their advan
tage by redoubling their demands for a
representative assembly, arguing that the
bureaucracy, which has proved Its incom
petence to make war successfully. Is equally
Incapable of concluding a creditable peace.
The Russ, now the leader of the constitu
tionalist papers, declares that the govern
ment without the people's support is im
potent to continue the war and will be
compelled to accept any terms. Only a
national assembly. It insists, can now save
the situation, because only with the sanc
tion of the people can exorbitant condi
tions be successfully resisted. Tho Russ

OXFORD, O., June IS. The feature of
the eighty-first commencement of Miami
university here today was the address of
Secretary of War William H. Taft It was
delivered in the commencement tent
erected on the campus among the forest
trees. The unsually large audience made
frequent Interruptions with applause.
In opening his speech Secretary Taft
touched on the racial question In the south,
and in this connection said:
Another encouraging feature of the pres
ent increase ot weaitn Is mat a large pro
portion ot this Increase has been in the
soutli, a part of our country wnicli hereto
fore lias ueen largely ugriculturtu anu poor.
1 ne cnange In tne material conditions in
tha soutn, in spite of the political ditlicul
ties mat certainly are mere, is creating a
better slate ot tilings wun reference to the
racial question. The work of iiooKer Wash

tools instead ot giving tiieni a superficial
university education, wnicli they cannot
Use, added lo the industrial demand for
Bkliled iaoor, X am certain will put tne ne
gro population In a belter condition ma
terially, anu when that Is brought, about
their spiritual and Intellectual uplifting la
much easier. The southern states are en
gaged in adopting legislations which seem
intended to exclude the negro trom tha
ballot in tact without Infringing the 1U
teentn amendment so palpably as to lead
to their annulment by the supreme court.
I am hoping earnestly that experiments of
this sort will fall, but if they will lead to
a result in which the laws shall exclude
Ignorant whites and blacks equally from
the ballot, then no one can quarrel with the
procedure, which will be square and honest.
As to Chinese.
Touching the application of the Chinese
exclusion law, the secretary asked; "Is it
Just that for the purpose of excluding or
preventing perhaps lou Chinese coolies from
slipping into this country ugainBt the law
we should subject an equal number of
Chinese merchant and students of high
character to an examination of sucfi an in
quisitorial, humiliating, insulting and
physicauy uncomfortable character as to
dlscourago altogether the coming ot mer
chants and students?" Then he said:
One of the great commercial prizes of the
world is the trade with auu.uou.uou Chinese
Ought we to throw away the advantage
which we have by reason of Chinese nut
ural frlendshlo for us and continue to en
force au unjustly Bevere Jaw, .nd thus

boycott American trade and drive our
merchunts from Chinese shores simply be
cause we are afraid that we may for the
time lose the approval of certain unreason
able and extremely popular leaders of Cali
fornia and other coast states'.' Does the
Question not answer itself? Is it nut the
duty of members of congress and of the
executive to disregard the unreasonable de
mands of a portion of the community

far west and Insist on extending Justice
and courtesy to a people from whom wo

The secretary then paid some attention
to Porto Rico and the Philippines, "the
burdens which we have assumed due to
the Spanish war."
"I do not," he snld, "for a moment con
tend that now or for years they will prove
anything but a burden to the United
In discussing what he pointed out were
the Inadequate .salaries paid, government
officials, the secretary asked the question
whetTler it is not the irony of lnconslst
ency tha,t we who are engaged in praising
the purity and the simplicity, of tho
democracy should adopt a policy by which
only millionaires can govern us.
The honorary degree of L. L. D., which
had been authorized by the directors for

him. He returned to Cincinnati tonight and
will leave that city at noon tomorrow for

successful. This is based primarily on the
belief that Japaa .will meet Russia mora
than half way, making unexpectedly lea
aonable demands. Certain Intimations have
been received here that Japan's terms are
substantially as follows:
First The recognition of the' Japanese
protectorate over core.
Second The return of Manchuria to

IMPROVED DAILY SERVICE
An event that above everything else has
claimed the Interest of society this week
was the wedding of Miss Marguerite Tres
ton, daughter of Mrs. E. It. Preston, and
Mr. Samuel Burns, Jr., which was sol
emnised at 8:30 o'clock last evening at All
Saints church In tho presence of about 300
