ARGUMENT OF THE RUSSKY INVALID
Paper Find Reason for Concluding
Peace In the superiority of
Japanese Forces In
WASHINGTON, June 25. It Is reroited
unofficially that President Roosevelt at a
late hour tonight was Informed hv Mr
Meyer, the ambassador of the United States
at Bt. Petersburg, of the selection of the
ST. PETERSBURG, Juno M.-12:M a. m.
Negotlatlons for the peace conference have
made an important step forward, a propo
sition for the date of the meeting of the
plenipotentiaries having been submitted to
Russia and being now under consideration.
The exact date proposed has not been
oscertalned, but there is reason to suppose
that it is some time during the first week
or ten days of August, which Is about the
earliest period at which the Japanese repre
sentatives cpuld be expected to reach Wash
ington, allowing time for the necessary pre
The emperor's answer Is not expected for
a day or two, as the diplomatic mills of
Russia grind slowly and the Foreign office,
as one of the secretaries put it, "Is not
used to your hustling American methods."
but It is thought that the date will be
satisfactory, as it will give ample time
for M. Nelidoff, the Russian ambassador
at Paris, or other Russian negotiators, to
reach Washington, and as there will be
little preliminary work for them to do until
the Japanese terms are submitted. ,
Whether the proposal regarding the date
originated at Toklo or at Washington can
not be learned, but the fact that the ne
gotiations were conducted through Am
bassador Meyer may indicate that Presi
dent Roosevelt has perhaps again stepped
to the fore and suggested to the two coun
tries, neither of whom would be willing to
take the Initiative, a suitable date.
Ambassador Meyer Is still exchanging
communications with Foreign Minister
Lamsdorff by letter, the minister being
confined to his apartments in the ministry,
but in his latest note, written by his own
hand, Count Lamsdorff expressed the hope
that he would have sufficiently recovered
to permit of personal exchange of views

The Russky Invalid, the army organ,

forces, it says, are divided as follows:

CRITICIZES SHIPS OF GERMANY
Naval Leaaue Would Have Nineteen
Vessel Replaced vrlth Modern
STUTTGART, June 24.-(Special Cable
gram to The Bee.) The resolutions recently
adopted by the Navy league in connreas
at Stuttgart are welcomed by the "Rheln-
un-weiiaiiscne Zeltung," with the
JF !?,?Arr!?e ?oa caV"ehas triumphed!"
m1 nauonai jutcraj acu
points out that, i-ftd lUT three
double squadrons of battleships has not
been relinquished, but merely . disguised.
Among the resolutions adopted by the
league was one in favor of superseding
ships of Inferior value by vessels of the
most modern type. An official table of
comparative values of battleships pub
lished by the league shows that in the
estimation of the agitators the Oerman
navy possessed no fewer than nineteen bat
tleship units of inferior value. Thus a
demand for the supersesalon of those so-
called obsolete craft by the most modern
constructions actually exceeds a demand
for a third double squadron.
How far the Reichstag will permit the
government to advance in the direction
desired by the league remains to be seen.
In the meantime there are apparently
grounds for assuming that the naval au
thorities favor the construction of a 16,000
ton type of battleship Instead of continu
ing to build ships of 13,200 tons, which rep
resents the latest class. Whether this In
crease of tonnage will be associated with
demand for an increase in the number
of battleships as contemplated by the naval
program of 1900 Is for the present uncer
tain The proposed increase In the ton
nage will of course necessitate a corre
sponding adaptation on the part of the
Oerman shipbuilding yards.
It will be remembered that a short time
ago the managing board of the Vulcan
shipbuilding firm at Stettin raised the ques
tion of transferring the works In whole or
In part from the shores of the Baltic to
tome North sea port, upon the ground
that the company could not at present
contract for 15,000-ton battleships because
these vessels could not pass the, Kiel canal.
The proposal has been dropped, but It
will undoubtedly be revived and adopted
as soon as the requirements of the gov
ernment have become known.

Separately Press Advises
PARIS, June 25 Speculation Is rife re
garding the probable purport of Germany's
reply to the French note regarding the
proposed International conference over
Moroccan affairs, which reply has not yet
been received. The statement that Ger
many would refrain from replying before
further verbal explanations took place be
tween Premier Rouvler and Prince Radolln,
the German ambassador. Is not regarded
seriously In well Informed circles, where
It is thought probable that an Interview
will not take place before Wednesday,
when the reply from Berlin may reach
Paris, but the officials are without definite
Information on this point. It Is alleged
that the contents of the reply was given
out today In which Germany requests a
clearer statement of the French program
for Moroccan affairs, suggesting that each
subject be discussed separately in accord
ance with the terms of the Madrid conven
tion, the two points principally referred to
being coast trading and frontiers, and that
should France accept, Germany would
abandon the idea of the conference. This,
however, la regarded as a surmise.
Meanwhile public anxiety relative to
eventualities, though somewhat abated, Is
stin intense. The press continues to advise
patience and confidence In the efforts of
the French government to arrive at a
pacific settlement It is pointed out that
the negotiations have heretofore been con
ducted In a spirit of courtesy and lhat ap
pearances show that everything Is being
done by both sides to reach an amicable
Resentment Toward Frnnce.

The newspapers continue to discuss the
situation between France iand Germany
with some heat. The North German Ga
xette declares that "In Premier Rouvler's
note the republic adopts no decided stand
point toward a conference and therefore
the situation Is no clearer."
An attempt Is being made to shift the
responsibility for the recent war panic to
articles in the British press, and the Na
tional Zeltung solemnly reminds France
that a Franco-German conflict would not
be decided by a Trafalgar, but on French
or German battlefields.

TAFT CONFERS WITH WALLACE

Panama Canal Is to Resign
NEW YORK, June 25. Secretary Taft 1
had a conference at the Manhattan hotel
today with John F. Wallace, chief engineer
of the Panama canal; T. P. Shonts, chair
man of the canal commission, and William
Nelson Cromwell, counsel for the commis
sion, but refused to make any statement
as to what matters had been discussed.
Immediately after the conference Secretary
Taft left for New Haven.
There will be other conferences before
Mr. Taft starts for the Philippine Islands.
Today's conference was brought about It
is believed, by the recent return of Mr.
Wallace from the Isthmus but it is not
known whether his visit portends his resig
nation unconditionally or conditionally, if
certain plans decided upon already are not
changed. It is believed he is dissatisfied,
whether about contracts already let. or
generally, he will not say.
Friends of Mr. Wallace are of the opin
ion that he has not yet resigned and that
if certain suggestions he may make after
a close inspection of the ground are
adopted he may remain In office. In any
event, it was said he would not sever his
connection with the work for some time.

The basis of reform, Including the cut

the abolition of the budgetary provision
for members of the clergy except those en
titled to pensions, the future disposal of
religious edifices and the constitution of
parish societies all aroused heated discus
sion. The last named question attracted
the close attention of the opponents of the
bill, the desire being to prevent church
property becoming the object of future po
litical strife. It was finally decided that
the governing bodies shall have power to

ceremonies and to form reserve funds for

its work, which would be the case unless
mutual Intercourse and assistance were al

prevent the funds being used for political
propaganda the clause was accepted. The
only point left for discussion Is the regula

CHINESE PROTEST IS HEARD
President Changes Methods of Administer
ing the Ixcluiion Act-
CERTIFICATES FOR THE EXEMPT CLASSES
These Will B Issued by American
Consuls and Will Be Accepted
Without Further Examina
tion at All Ports.
WASHINGTON. June 25-By the direc
tion of President Roosevelt action has been
taken by the administration which not only
will facilitate the landing In this country of
Chinese exempt classes, but will also
eliminate from th emigration Tmreau such
administrative features as have been sub
jects of criticism by Chinese. It Is the de
clared intention of the president to see that
Chinese merchants, travelers, students and
others of the exempt classes shall have the
same courtesy shown them by officers of
the Immigration bureau as Is accorded to
citizens of the most favored nations.
Representations have been made to the
president that in view of alleged harsh
treatment accorded to many Chinese seek
ing a landing In the United States, the com
mercial guilds of China have determined to
institute a boycott on American manufac
tures. The representations, backed by the
authority of the American Asiatic society
and commercial bodies throughout the
country, Induced the president to make an
investigation of the situation with a view
to remedying the evils complained of, if
they were found to exist. The subject was
discussed thoroughly by the cabinet and the
president took it up personally with Secre
tary Metcalf of the Department of Com
merce and Labor, who has supervision of
the lmmigratlot. bureau.
Orders to Consuls.
As a result of the Inquiry, orders have
been Issued to the diplomatic and consular
representatives of the United Slates in
China by the president himself that they
must look clostly to the performance of
their duties, under the exclusion law, and
see to It that members of. the exempt
classes coming to this country are provided
with proper certificates. These certificates
will be accepted at any port of the United
States and will guarantee the bearer
against any harsh or discourteous treat
ment. Such treatment, Indeed, will be th
cause of the Instant dismissal of the offend
ing official, whoever he may be.
In addition to the president's orders, Sec
retary Metcalf has Issued instructions to
the Immigration officers which, It Is be
lieved, will remedy the difficulty heretofore
complained of bv the Chinese government
and individuals. It is anticipated thut the
prompt action taken by this government to
meet the objections made by the Chinese
will eliminate the possibility of serious
trade difficulties between China and the
manufacturers of this country.

Beyond the bare announcement that firing
was again heard Saturday night In th
Jewish quarter at Lodi and that the Jews
are leaving the city in great numbers, there
is almost nothing known about the situa
tion at Lodx and the developments of Sat
urday and Sunday,
The lack of Information prevented any
manifestation of feeling on th part of
workmen of St. Petersburg, many of whom
are In sympathy with social revolutionary
doctrines and for the same reason there 1
little discussion in the clubs and cafes, most
of the people not being aware that any
thing unusual is happening in Poland.
When the details become known It may
be expected that the news will create the
i deepest Impression In all industrial section
of Russia and bring about disorders, which
would be particularly unfortunate coming
Just at this Juncture when the government
Is bending every effort to induce the people
to be patient and to await the Issuance of
a ukase announcing the convocation of a
national assembly, the proclamation regard
ing which cannot be long delayed. The
date for the convocation waa some time ago
tentatively fixed for June 28, but the final
revision of the project is taking longer
than had been expected and the ukase will
probably have to be postponed.
