gard to the latent stage of the peace ne
gotiation :
Btatemente have appeared In prominent
American and Kngllsh papers, which, while
eloquent, studiously moderate and well
Intended, are unhappily calculated to mis
lead the world na to the prospects of
peace and the general character of Japan's
so-called new proposal with which It Is
contended Russia can close without loss
of dignity. The regretablo mistake Into
which the representatives of those Journals
have undoubtedly fallen Is obvlousty the
result of misleading data leavened with
real but secondary facts. Thus It Is quite
true, as those papers predicted, that the
envoys of Japan came forward at today's
sitting with a proposal which was new
In form, but old In substance. It Is equally
true that that proposal lacks the two con
tentious clauses stipulating that Russia
shall surrender to Japan her disarmed war.
ships and limit her naval strength on the
Pacific and that It reduces the differences
between the two powers to the compass
of what Is In appearance a single ques
tionthe sale of Sakhalin. Seemingly
therefore, Japan has also struck her pen
through the most obnoxious clause of Rli
that which deals with Indemnity and all
that she now asks Russia to do In addition
to the terms already agreed tipon Is to
purchase the northern half of Sakhalin
for a sum of l,2no,ouo,not yen. And this
alleged simplification of terms Is supposed
to provide Russia with an acreptnble basis
for a peace treaty. At first sight the
offer may perhaps seem new to some, but
a closer examination will show It to be
In all essentials Identical with the proposal
already rejected by Russia's plenipoten
tiaries. Only a person unfamiliar with
war. In love with humanltarlnnlsm, for
eign to Russia and Incompetent to Judge
of Russia's national honor and dignity
could see In those terms the source of a
new Impulse given to the peace negotia
tions. Hut a grievous mistake was. com
mitted by those who imagined that the
Slentpotentlarles of the czar, the repre
entatlves of the Russian nation, would
take the huk for the kernel, the shadow
for the substance. A person of average
Intelligence can see what Is new In this
proposal Is the phraseology in which It Is
couched. i a 't . ,
T,he ellmlrmtlnn of the two clause stipu
lating that Ruta,''fl1snrmed warships he
handed over t Japan and Its naval strength

Its demand. Russia, on the contrary, has
conceded freely and fully everything It
could give consistently with Its sense of
national honor and dignity. Hence, what
to Japan ls but a matter of money ls to
Russia a point of honor. T withdraw the
cash claim ls therefore Immeasurably easier
to Japan than it would be lor Russia to
allow It.
If. therefore, the efforts of American
friends are to be crowned with success. If
the labors of the conference are not to entt

far east ls to bo terminated, It behooves
Jtinan to make a frank declaration mat it

Its demand to have Its war costs paid in
any shape or form. Therefore, despite the
positive and emphatic declaration of the
well meaning but mistftaen journalists ni-
luded to above, peace is not, ana cannot w.

Public Opinion In Russia.
ST. PETERSBURG, Aug. 23.-2 a. m.
The Associated Press has the best of rea
sons and authority for declaring again, with
increased enrphasls, that Russia will never
consent to the payment of an Indemnity to
Japan. 8uch payment would so gravely
menace the vital Interests of the state as
to make this article In the Japanese terms
utterly impossible of acceptance.
Furthermore, the Associated Press has
the aame reasons and authority for the
declaration that If Japan withdrew her In
demnity demand peace would practically
be assured, as the Russian attitude on the
other three points, Including the cession of
Sakhalin, does not preclude the possibility
of reaching satisfactory settlement on these
points. ' " '
Russia ls ready, however, to make a
reasonable and proper payment for the
maintenance of the Russian prisoners in the
hands of the Japanese. This has been the
attitude of the Foreign office since the four
points In dispute were referred to St.
Petersburg from Portsmouth, and It ls the
true expression of Russian official and pub
lic opinion.
Mr. Meyer, the American ambassa
dor, had an audience with the em
peror at Peterhof this afternoon
which lasted three hours. Presumably
the matter of peace was discussed at
length, but nothing can be ascertained af
presenl regarding what actually took place,
as the embassy declines to give out any
It Is known, however, that a long cable
gram has been sent to Washington, giving
the results. of the conference.
Mr. Meyer left St. Petersburg at 3 p. m.,
arriving at Peterhof an hour later, and re
turning to St. Petersburg shortly before 8
o'clock. The emperor attended the ma
neuvers In the morning and returned ts
Peterhof Just In time to receive Mr. Meyer.
President Appeals to Tsar.
OYSTER BAY, Aug. 23 President
Roosevelt's final effort to Induce a cessa
tion of hostilities in the fareast is almost
dramatic in Its extraordinary Interest.
Through George L. Meyer, the Ameri
can ambassador at St. Petersburg, he has
made a direct appeal to Emperor Nicholas
to permit the adoption of such measures
In the pending peace conference as will
terminate the war.
As a result of the president' instruc
tions, Ambassador Meyer had a special au
dience with Emperor Nicholas today at
Peterhof palace What conclusions were
reached at that conference ls not known
here, as no Intimation has been given of
the receipt by the president of Ambassador
Meyer's cabled report!
The report received from Assistant v Sec
retary of State Pelrce at Portsmouth that
the plenipotentiaries had adjourned their
sittings unt'.l next Saturday was a source
of satisfaction. It ls a distinct assurance
that efforts are being made- with Increas
ing prospect of ultimate success to com
promise on the crucial points of differ
ences among the conferees. It Is regarded
as certain that every hour gained In the
time of the conference makes for a peace
ful conclusion of the differences. ,
Better Feeling; at Berlin.
BERLIN. Aug. 23. The foreign office
looks upon the possibilities of peace as more
favorable today than they were yesterday
but no prediction! are ventured. The in
crease ot confidence rests upon Indications
of Jirpanese forbearance and upon Presi
dent Roosevelt's Influence which is felt at
both Tokio and St. Petersburg. Reports
from St- Petersburg, however, are not
hopeful. The Russian government might
adml. all points except payment of the
Japanese war expenses, but the foreign
office has been informed from St. Peters
burg that Russia will not consent to pay
one rouble In the form of Indemnity. The
Bourse today felt the influence of London's
greater optimism.
Greater fsslsesrs at Paris.
PARIS, Auf. Reports from Ports
mouth today, indicating prospects of mu
tual concessions, restored the feeling of con.
fiditnce In official and financial circles. The
Bourse showed some notable Improvement
from the sudden slump of yesterday. Rus
sian securities were in active demand from
the start, 4s showing aa advance ot 40
centimes. The appearance of the Russian
bank statement also favorably Influenced
this situation. This shows that the debit
balances of the government to the bank
has been replaced by a government credit
of 14..000 as the result ot the last in
terior loan.

common Judgment of mankind. ,
Victor and vanquished rejoice In the com
plete re-eabllshment of our national solid
arity. They eitcli see a new glory In the
republic, purified In the fiery furnace of the
gieat civil conflict. Each yields willing tri
bute to the valor of the other. Belter or
braver men never faced each olner upon
tho fields of battle than those who met
under the leadership of Grant and Lee.
' Lesson of Memorial.
This memorial teaches a double lesson:
Valor, fortitude and patriotism In tbe mer
ciless shock of war; amnesty, mercy and
pardon In the tranquil wus of peace, it
stands In powerful advocacy of tne equal
ity of men under our institutions. ine
sword of the nation was drawn In order
that the quality of men beneath the nag
of the United btates might become an ac
complished, a living fact. .
It proclaims tho everlasting truth that
the rlKhts-of men upon the American con
tinent cannot be trampled in the dust, mat
the rights of the humblest are as sacred
as the rights of the most exalted.
While we pay homage to those wno
stood in defense of the nation, wo do not
withhold from those who fought to over
throw the republic an expression of our
admiration and esteem. We are not want
ing lri regard for those who, through mis
taken Judgment, raised their hand against
their own friend and protector the flag ol
the United States. They were our klmlieo.
We were then divided, but we are now
reunited, and God grant that no power
on earth may drive us asunder; that no na
tional exigency may arise which will not do
met equally by all sections of the republic,
and that no peril may confront us wnicn
will not be faced by an united people
stronger because of the results of the tiwi
As we stand here In the presence of this
imposing evidence of a people's reverence
and gratitude we pledge anew our fca'y
to the Institutions preserved by the valor
of'the soldiers and sailors of the republic.
New Tasks Will Come.
We are to go forward, meeting with
brave hearts the burdens which rest upon
a great people. Advancing years and ex
panding power bring new tacks, new ques
tions, but the principles which should gov
ern us In meeting them do not change.

mon Justice among men were the same yes
terday as they are today and they will not
change with the coming of tomorrow. Our
obligations to the state are not Intermittent
It rests upon us whether In the midst of
peace or In the midst of war. Our civic
duties must be well discharged If we would
preserve a strong, clean government one
that we must have if we are to attain our
highest destiny. We teach love of 1 berty,
we inculcate the doctrine that the only way
to maintain freedom in Its best sense Is to
observe the law-the law established by
the wisdom of high-minded and patr otic
lawmakers, chosen by a free and patriotic
electorate. Our luws should be. preserved
from the contaminating touch of selfishness
and they should be enforced fearlessly and
without favor. There should be neither
partiality in the creation of the law nor
partiality In its enforcement. Lquailty Is
the fundamental essential in free Kovern
ment It was for such equality the soldiers
arid sailors of the civil war wrote one of
the mightiest chapters In human history.
Present High Moral Standard.
Vve hear much of defalcations, breaches
cf trust, n altehsance In office, and ti ere
ac i fr:nif ts who declare we h.un tellen
upon corrupt times: that we are docadjiit;
thin th.f rul lie conscience ls dull On the
contrary, there never was an hour In all
of our splendid history when there was a
more acute moral sense among the great
masses of people, and more uprightness in
their relations of life than there ls today.
This standard of civic duty was never
higher than it is now. There never was
more respect for a high grade of commer
cial and professional ethics than at present.
There ts a widespread determination among
the people that those who pollute the law
should be compelled to answer or It; that
the laws shall not be set at naught by evll
doera by enemies of established order.
While we reverently pay homage to those
who bore the heat of battle, we do not for
get that we owe tribute to those who In
the days of national calm, preserved that
which was won In the fury of the storm.
The enemies of the republic do not always
appear with fleets or with armies, and with
waving banners. Those who abuse the pub
lic confidence, or who disregard the law, or
who debauch the elective franchise, are ln
slduous enemies. Those who, with no ex

Conclusion Reached by Immlfrrant
Inspector Mansfield In Caao of
Greek Bootblacks.
Immigrant Inspector Mansfield, after
carefully Investigating the case of Con
stantlus Pnlognstorl. (Peter Anderson), the
Greek bootblack, has, lurid tales to the
contrary notwithstanding, reached the con
clusion that no case could be made against
the employer of the Greek boys at the
Athens shining parlors on Sixteenth street,
near Dodge, and that there Is no ground
for governmental Interference in the mat
ter for the violation of the Immigration
A bunch of the Greek hoyi was arrested
last Friday, charged with stealing a pocket
book belonging to a Woman patron of the
establishment, but were subsequently ac
quitted of the charge. However, It de
veloped In the hearing of the case before
Detective Dunn thnt the boys were brought
here, as was alleged by the Anderson lad,
to work for the proprietor of the concern,
and were kept In a system of peonage or
slavery, all their earnings being turned
over to tho boss, and they paid Just suffi
cient for their barest necessities.
The matter was called to the attention of
Immigrant Inspector Mansfield, and Tues
day afternoon the Anderson boy was ques
tioned by the flnspector. He stated that
his father had paid his fare from the land
of Leonldas a,nd Terlcles to America, and
that he came of Ms own free will to stay
with a relatlvo at Chattanooga, Tenn.
While there he engaged with a bootblack
concern, owned by the owner of the Omaha
concern, and a few months ago came to
Omaha to work In the establishment here.

isation. Liberatl's band, fanfare corps and con
cert company, began an engagement of
four days at Krug park last evening.
There was no stated program, and re
quests for popular numbers were honored,
so the program ranged from Wagner to the
lightest of popular music. The fanfare
corps, playing counter melodies in the
gTeat bandmasters' own marches, was not
merely a novelty; the effect was thrilling.
Miss Kathertne Klarer, prima donna, so
prano, has a voice that seemed to "fill up
all out of doors."
The Reeves fantasia on the old familiar
"Akansaw Traveler" was one of the hits
of. the evening. In this unique number
every "family" of Instruments in the band
had an opportunity to show its tone color
as well as the ability of the various per
formers. Liberatl has his band under
thorough control and the Immense crowd
seemed thoroughly appreciative.
Hereafter, until the close of the engage
ment next Saturday night, the usual Sun
day car service will be provided. Manager
Cole has ordered 8,000 extra chairs to be
used during the rest of the engagement.
Mr. Liberatl has lost none of the mas
tery of the cornet, for which he has long
been famous. His solos were enthus
iastically received, and repeatedly encored.
Breen Says Water Company Has Ren
dered Ko Demand for Flash.
Inn" This Summer,
Regarding the amount of the bill ren
dered by the Omaha Water company for
water used for street flushing, which City
Attorney Breen said had been charged for
at the rate of 30 cents per 1,000 gallons
when the agreement with the city was for
a 6-cent rate, he said:
"So fat as I know, the water company
has rendered no bills for any street flush
ing water this summer. A bill did come
in for water used at the tool house and It
was charged for at the rate of 30 cents. I
objected to it and refused to approve It.
This bill was submitted to the city attor
ney for his advice. It called for about .
I think the company has not presented
any bills to anyone for water used for
flushing this summer."
As he finished talking the water com
pany called him up and asked for a state
ment as to the amount of water the
flushing gangs have used. It la measured
by the flow per hour, baaed upon an esti
mated flow through the hydrants.
Mr. Breen requested that the verbiage of
his statement of "a drop of water on the
fire department" be changed to read, "suffi

CAIRO.-III., Aug. 23. The state of Illinois
and the- United States government had
trouble of a few hours duration here today
and the United States was worsted In tha
matter. A force of seventeen Inspectors In
charge of .Superintendent L. Brume, Jr., of
the United States Public Health and Marine
hospital service are looking after the quar
antine regulations In the state and cities
south of Illinois. Three of these Inspectors
travel up and down the Mobile & Ohio and
have been making their headquarters in
Cairo, coming into Illinois from Mississippi
and Louisiana against the orders of the
state of Illinois and the city of Cairo.
Secretary Egan of the State Board of
Health advised these inspectors today that
they could no longer enter Cairo. The mat
ter was Anally adjusted by the United
States government agreeing to sead im
munea to Cairo. The federal authorities de
clared a rigid quarantine today against
Fulton county, Kentucky, as the authorities
there have been Issuing unlawful certifi
cates. Secretary Egan Is watching the re
sult of the fever at Gregory, Mo., and may
be compelled to protect that portion of Illi

Seek to Call Committee Together by
' Petition on False Stntements
About Chairman Cowell,
Pretending to fear that Chairman Cowell
may seek to have the executive committee
or himself appoint delegates to the state
convention, the anti-machine leaders are
circulating a petition calling for a meet
ing of the republican county committee
Saturday afternoon at t o'clock In The
Bee building. The circulars ' point out
that the state convention is to be held
September 14 and that Chairman Cowell is
away on his vacation. If the required
number of signatures can be obtained they
say the meeting will be called regardless
of the chairman's absence or authority.
Some vague "other business" Is spoken ot
"This move," said a machine member of
the committee, "Is what might have been
exfx-cted from the antls, but no member
of the committee who has any respect
for Chairman Cowell should lend hla sig
nature to it. Chairman Cowell will be
home In plenty ot time to call the com
mittee together to take care of the selec
tion of state degelates and to transact all
the business that belongs to it. He has
never been asked to call the committee,
so could not have refused such a demand.
Ha conferred with members of the com
mittee before he went away, and tha un
derstanding reached was that ha ahould
call the committee immediately on his re
turn, which will be In about another
week. The thing to do la to let the antis
call by petition severely alone."

General Btanacer Replies to Some of
City Attorney's Official
OMAHA. Aug. 28.-T0 the Editor of Tha
Bee: City Attorney Breen la quoted In to
day'a Bee aa having aald at the council
meeting last night: "It has been discov
ered that a number of hydrants put In
have not been available for a drop of
water for the Are department." If this
means, aa It aeema to, that there la not a
supply of water at every hydrant avail
able for use In case ot Are, it Is unquali
fiedly false and rldlculoua. The water com
pany Is not responsible for the location ot
Arc hydrants, aa thla has been the province
of the city, but It Is responsible for the
furnishing of water to tnem. and tha
"discovery" that water is not so fur
nished Is sufficiently absurd to be worthy
of tha discoverer.
Mr. Breen also refers to an attempt "to
compel consumers to put in meter boxes at
the curb line when a danger appeared thnt
the meter ratea would be reduced." Tha
order to have meters aet outside, unless
otherwise consented to by the company,
was not a specimen of "new thought," was
not Inspired by the attempt of the Water
board to reduce rates, and was merely a
reminder' to bring plumbers to the office
before they made contracts, aa Some of
them were assuming to do. to set' meters
at the end of long service linea Instead of
at the beginning. ' The right to require
measurement at the point where water Is
delivered to a consumer's pip la a reason
able and an unquestionable one.
Mr. Breen la also quoted aa having said
that the city has Just been presented with a
bill "for water uaed for street flushing at
SO cents per 1,000 gallons." I hereby offer
a large reward for the apprehension of that
bill. Mr. Breen cannot produce any auch
bill, at 90 cents or any other rate per 1,000
I do not propose to try our law suits In
the newspapers or in the council chamber,
as the city attorney aeema bent upon doing.
In an ex-part e hearing: he appears to have
no use for facta. Hla statement that the
water company haa gone out of ita way
to harass and embarrass the city, "and
particularly In preventing the acquirement
of the water works," Is so obviously untrue
that I need . scarcely remind you that the
city Is at this moment holding up tha ap
praisement by Injunction proceedings. Mr.
Breen'a trouble may be mere Ignorance or
Imbecility, but It looks more like malicious
falsehood. He certainly knows more things
that are not so than any one who haa
recently fulminated on the water worka
question and that ia saying a good deal.
If thla sort of thins la the "fair and de
cent treatment'" the ,clty attorney pratea
about we do not car for it.
