The steel bridge across Bad River was car

the Missouri about 100 yards below the
mouth of Bad river. While It is not certain
that any lives were lost, several parties
are missing and have not been located up
to the present time, but as many people
are camped In tents on the bluffs south of
the torrent, the missing may be among
them. There Is no communication except
by boat down the Missouri. On the north
side of the river a number of business
places were flooded by the Missouri and
Bad rivers, the losses being principally to
merchants with stocks In basements. The
loss up the Bad river valley must be heavy.

ST. PETERSBURG, July 4.-1:80 p. m.
With the completion of the arrangements
for the Washington peace meeting Presi
dent Roosevelt has resumed his efforts to
bring about an armistice. No light Is
thrown on the exact status of the negoti
ations and the character of the communica
tions passing between the Russian and
Japanese and Washington governments.
The matter Is a delicate one, but the out
look for success from all Information ob
tainable is not unpromising if Japan Is
ready to sheath the sword until the Wash
ington meeting develops whether a basis
for peace Is possible. Russia's consent
seems assurred. In diplomatic circles It
Is felt that Great Britain could render
service by timely advice to Its ally, but
so far as known England Is not supporting
President Roosevelt's efforts. Should the
president be able to successfully arrange
the preliminaries It appears certain that
actual negotiations for an armistice will
be concluded directly between Field Mar
shal Oyama and General Llnevltch on the
battlefield In Manchuria.

LONDON, July 4. Princess Arlsuwaga
of Japan, who was accompanied by the

The Katorl Is one of the most powerful
battleships launched in this country. Its
tonnage Is 16.UO0, its coal capacity 2,1(0
tons and its contract speed 18 knots. The
side armor of the Katorl la nine Inches
thick. Ten thousand spectators viewed the
launching ceremony. Pigeons were lib
erated from a balloon on the ship's bows
as an emblem of peace and good will.
Prince Arlsuwaga In a speech at the
luncheon which followed the launching re
marked that while the Katorl would not
be available during the present deplorable
war, it would help to guarantee future
peace In far eastern waters and uphold
the national dignity of Japan.

NEW YORK. July 4. "Please deny for
me that I have given out any Interview cn
politics," were almost the first words of
Baron Rosvn, the new Russian ambassador
to America, to a representative of the As
sociated Press as the Kaiser Wllhelm il
was moored at its dock In Hoboken today.
"When I received the American newspa
per reports," he said, "I observed that a
FrsucU bsws a,eucjf attrlbuWd t die aa
interview, quoting me as saying that Rus
sia is willing to pay the expenses of the
war within certain limits. I wish you to
deny this for me, and also deny Hist I have
ever given out any Interview or expressed
publicly any opinion of a political nature.
Please say that and nothing more, and I
will be much pleased."
Baron Rosen succeeds Count Casslnl as
American ambassador for Russia to the
United States, and Is also named as one of
Russia's peace plenipotentiaries. The baron
does not come to the United States as a
stranger, as he served his country as
charge d'affalrs at Washington during the
first administration of President Cleveland.
Since his last stay In America the baron
has been minister at Toklo, and held that
post at the outbreak of the war.
RlsSIAXS PAY TRIBITE TO HAY
Liberal Press Particularly Compli
mentary to Work of Statesman.
ST. PETERSBURG, July 4.-The press,
especially the liberal organs, continue to
pay high tributes to the late Secretary
Hay as a man, as a scholar and as a
statesman, praising the almost ideal plane
on which his diplomacy was based.
The Syn Onteshestva says it considers
him to have been the founder of a new
and better school of diplomacy. The Novoe
Vremya expresses the only unkind note
regarding the deceased statesman, saying:
"As China's 'wet nurse,' as the enemy of
Russia and as the encouragor of Japan,
he waa mainly responsible for the check
administered to Russia's dream of empire
In the Orient."
