Building, Corner Sixteenth and Douglas Streets 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 1 a detail which the officials of the Btate department by direction of President Roose velt will work out doubtless entirely sat isfactorily. : . . 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 peror. . 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, ADDRESS BY SECRETARY TAFT Refers to National Affair in Talking to Graduates of Ohio School.

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 adds : The mere mention of Deuce has aroused the people, who profoundly distrust the government's ability to cope with tho prob lem by mail and teleKraDh.

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 ington in teaching his people how to use 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 create tn the Chinese mind a disposition to 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 deeply prejudiced on this subject In the far west and Insist on extending Justice and courtesy to a people from whom wo ere deriving and are likely to derive such Immense benefit in the way of international trade? 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 States." 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 Secretary Taft, was formally conferred on him. He returned to Cincinnati tonight and will leave that city at noon tomorrow for Washington. Ing held In the library of the Hotel Chal- fonte. The general officers In attendance were: Mrs. Sarah Piatt Decker, president; Mrs. Philip N. Moore of St. Louis, vice president; Mrs. May Alden Ward of Bos ton, second vice president; Mrs. John D.

PIERRE, 8. P., June 15. (Special Tele, gram.) The state land department today made the June semi-annual apportionment of the Interest and Income fund to the pub He schools, distributing over $300,000, making $2.25 for every school child in the state. ' of society are unanimously of the opinion hat the present regime Is done for and hat we must begin the history of a new nuasia nussia ot tne peopio. Even the reactionary Svlet Is carried off Its feet by the tide and Joins in the chorus asking for a semsky tabor. The Svlet. however, docs not ask for a cemsky zabor In order to make peace, but to secure the support of the people to continue the war The selection of Washington makes It certain that several weeks must elapse be fore the first meeting of the negotiators is possible. Bis Battle Probable. Unless President Roosevelt on his own initiative Is able to induce the belligerents in the meantime to agree to au armistice, the fear Is general that the Interim will witness another bloody battle in Man thorla. Russia, while It could not place Itself in the position of directly requesting an armistice might welcome it,, if the sub gostlon came from the president. Doubt is. however, expressed in certain quarters as to whether even an appeal by President Roosevelt could Induce Japan to forego its present strategical advantages and the chances to deliver another blow before the plenipotentiaries meet. All the news from the front indicates that Field Marshal Oyama is ready to strike and if, in ad vance of the meeting at Washlgnton, ha could administer a crushing defeat to Lieutenant General Llnevltch It would be all the easier for Japan to secure the ac ceptance of its terms. Vienna la Hopeful. "VIENNA, June 15. The opinion prevalllna here is that the peace negotiations between Russia and Japan will eventually- prove 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 Chuia. -' third International control of eastern cninese railroad. Fourth Regarding Port Arthur, the strategical value of this fortress has. been overestimated and it. is said that Its ultl mate disposal will not give rise to any con' troversy. Klfthi-lt Is not thought that Japan will demand tne demolition ot the fortifications at v ladlvoetok. Sixth The surrender of the Island of Ask, hallo will not be demanded bv J a can dHii dually because Japan has not yet carried me war into riussian irrniory. Seventh An understanding regarding an Indemnity Is not tmpoasiole,' bwmue It is declared Japan will content Itself with de manoing the cost oi tne war, Tha Japanese minister here tn an inter view said that If Russia honestly desired peace It could have it.
