Portsmouth they are proceeding actively
through President Roosevelt at Sagamore
Hill. Ho Is In practically constant com
munication with the St. Petersburg and
, Toklo government. By both of the warring
nations his good offices have been sought
and his efforts to bring their plenipotenti
aries Into accord and thus prevent a failure
of the peace conference are unremitting.
- - Early In the day. the president had an
extended conference with Baron Kanekn,
the recognized confidential agent of the
Japanese government in this country.
Neither the president nor Baron Kaneko
' Would discuss the nature of the Interview.
.While the baron's expressed views of the
peace negotiations were not optimistic, he
left a distinct impression that the last word
iby no mean had been, spoken, and hope of
successful Issue of the conference still was
strong. He prottsted- that Japan had ' no
wish 'to do-anything to humiliate Russia,
itlut expressed the belief that the Japanese
'terms were quite lsor)able and that n
further concessl6nsMr6uld be made.
' After the departure of Baron Kaneko,
Prosldent Roosevelt was engaged with
.Acting Secretary Barhea - for two hours
In the consideration of dispatches received
and In the preparation of those to1 be
sent - V- ' ' i ' .'
' The disclaimer of the Russian ' Foreign
office of th statement purporting to have
been made yesterday by Count Lamsdorff,
minister of foreign affairs, declaring that
Russia would pay no Indemnity to Japan
under any guise or make any cession of
territory, was received by the president
wltb. satisfaction. It Indicated no willing
ness on the part of Russia to accede to
Japan's terms as to indemnity, but th
disclaimer Is regarded as leaving the way
bpen for further discussion of terms that
may lead to a satisfactory conclusion of
: Whether-the negotiations now being con
ducted through President Roosevelt will
have reached aucb a state by the hour
at which the conferees are to reaslemble
at Portsmouth tomorrow as to enable
th 'plenipotentiaries tq proceed with Im
portant - considerations Is regarded as
'doubtful. It appears to be likely that the
envoys 'will meet and after a perfunctory
session, adjourn their deliberations until
Monday or possibly until Tuesday.

the developments of today In the peace
moves and hoping that a compromise Is
being effected, the most likely basis of
which. It Is believed, would be no Indem
nity, but a payment Tor Sakhalin to be left
for future adjustment. In fact, it was as
serted yesterday in an exceptionally well
Informed quarter that this was the only
possible basis fpr a compromise.
The belief Is expressed in some quarters
that there will be no session at Ports
mouth today and the Associated Press is
Informed on excellent authority that a fur
ther adjournment could be taken as a
most hopeful sign, aa it would prove that
serious efforts looking to a compromlso
Up to 8 o'clock last evening Ambassador
Meyer had received no message from
Washington. The Idea that President
Roosevelt might again communicate with
the emperor through th American am
bassador finds credence la certain official
quarters.' "The exchange of telegrams be
tween Portsmouth an thi ' Foreign offtc
continues, but the nature of these dis
patches Is a most carefully- guarded secret.
It can be asserted, however, on th best
authority that any suggestion to Russia
from any source whatever that It assent to
the payment of Indemnity would be most
unwelcome,, though a sincere desire for
peace leaves it open for the suggestion of
a compromise on other grounds.
Ko Anxiety la. Russia.
Russia is showing no nervousness regard
ing the outcome of the negotiations. ;
The emperor Is calm and serene and ev
idences of confidence in his decision and
the course he Is pursuing in the conviction
that Russia has conceded all It can . are
noticeable among all intelligent classes. ,
Peace or the continuance of the war Is
contemplated with fatalistic tranquility; In
fact .the disasters of Llao-Tang, Mukden
and the Sea of Japan, seem almost to have
been forgotten. One hear frequent ex
pression of confidence In the ability of the
army In Manchuria to defeat the Japanese.
This confidence Is based on the many re
ports which have been received her of th
good condition of the troop, the advan
tageous positions they' bold and the lm
proved morale of th wiole assembly.
Russia Afraid of the Patar.
Behind Russia's refusal to. pay an In
demnity there Is not only the determine
tlon not to do an undignified thing, which
Is without, precedent In Russian history,
but the belief that the .payment of an in
demnlty would permit Japan soon to as
sume the aggressive again. The Russian
government must colonize. Blberla,,, and In
the course of time Russia's influence on
the Pacific is bound to expand. It wants
to be rid for as king a time as possible
of th menace of Japanese aggression
which Indemnity would, make possible.
In this connection a very well Informed
diplomat said to the A.clate4 Press
If the bankers would say to Japan: Tou
can hsv money for the conclusion of
peace, but not a penny for th continuance
of the war, peace would be declared to
morrow. The financiers have the matter
entirely in their band.

while expressing to Ambassador Meyer his

efforts,, explained that Russia wa unable
to make further concessions. HI majesty
said that th payment of an Indemnity
would be contrary to the fundamental Inter
est of the nation, while It would only fur
ther the ambition of the Japanese for -fresh
territorial conquests and Involve the possi
bility of a recommencement of war In the

Conference at Toklo.
TOKIO, Aug. 25. Following th receipt
of a cablegram from Baron Komura Pre
mier Kataura and Secretary General of
Affairs Chlnda called Marquis Ito Into a
lengthy conference. It Is believed that Im
portant development are forthcoming.
Premier Katsura Is receiving hundreds of
letters, telegrams and memorials urging
Insistence on the Japanese terms.
The Associated Press correspondent ha
reason to believe that nothing that has oc
curred at Portsmouth will change th atti
tude of the Japanese government. While
the foreign office maintains Its usual
reticence and the officials decline to talk
for publication, the demand for an ade
quate indemnity remain unalterable.
Th Japanese newspaper JIJI declares that
any compromise relating to the purchase of
the Island of Sakhalin aa reimbursement for
the cost of the war would leave Japan
loser, as both Items are vitally Important
and a compromise I impossible. Th JIJI
Peace concluded In such form cannot sat
isfy us and cannot be solid. Rupture would
be preferable to such a sacrifice. Prolonga
tion of the war means a hard struggle on
our part, but we would rather suffer any
hardship than consent to a reduction or
alteration of our demand.

A crowd quickly gathered around the

placed under arrest by Officer Lahey. He
made no resistance. He was taken to the
police station and charged with assault

Story Told by Hasband.
The story told by Parmenter at the police
station Is that when he drew his pay
check on August his wife asked him for
enough money to pay a visit to her parents
at St. Paul, Minn. He gave her the money
and she was to leave the following morning.
H went to work as usual the next morn
ing, thinking that his wife would take a late
train. Several days passed and he had not
heard from his pouse, so he wrote her at
her parent's address In St. Paul, but re
ceived a reply from his wife's mother
stating that Mrs. Parmenter had not been
there, and that they had not heard from her
for several weeks.
"I stood It as long as I could and then I
began making Inquiries about my wife,"
Parmenter said. . "I learned from a rail
road man that she was still In Omaha.
This wa several days ago, but I was
unable to learn ,of her whereabouts until
this morning, when she called me up over
the telephone, saying that she would meet
me on the viaduct In front of the Union
Parmenter then told, in a voice broken
with sobs, how his wife had taunted him
and laughed when he asked her to com
back and live with him. He says he was
so despondent over his wife's refusal to
return to their home that he went to a
drug store and procured the carbolic acid,
Intending to take It himself If, after another
request, his wife refused to return home
Didn't Think When Throwing.
He met her at the depot, and while In a
fit of anger he threw the acid at her, but
say h did not think of what he was do

Cd.'s Weekly Review of Trade tomorrow
Distribution of autumn merchandise Is In
progress unusually early this year and th
volume of forward business Is sn heavy
that the last half of 1906 promlnea to estab
lish a remarkable record of commercial
activity. Current retail trade is well main
tained, the urgency of orders received by
Jobbers Indicating that dealers' storks are
ecoming depleted, and there Is little com
plaint regarding collections. More labor
disputes have reached settlement and no
serious controversies are threstened, whll
In many sections the supply of wag
earners is Inadequate. Frtibt blockades
snd Insufficient rolling stow, cause delay,
despite widely extended futilities as com
pared with last year, and inls trouble will
probably Increase as the crop-moving sea
Special reports regarding manufacturing
Conditions have been received rom about
forty leading Industrial centers and Ihere
Is surprising unanimity In the statements.
With scarcely an exception, pUnts are
working close to full capacity, with little
Idle machinery except wher alterations or
Improvements are In progress, and con
tracts on hand far exceed those held at
this date In 1904. lCquallv gratifying Is
the confidence expressed In the future, a
prominent feature of most reports. En
couraging crop prospects provide a large
share of the good feeling. Railway earn
ings in the first half of August surpassed
last year's by 6.S per cent, while foreign
commerce at this port for the last week
exceeded the movement a year previous
by 12,410,546 In export and tl.lwi.0u5 In im
ports. Sentiment has Improved In the Iron and
steel industry. Actual transactions are
atllj somewhat limited, but confidence In
me iuture is necomlng more widely dif
fused. Mills makinar textile fabrics are en
joying a larger degree of activity and ap
pear to have more business In sight than
any other branch of manufacture. This
Is due in part to the low position to which
stocks were allowed to become depleted
before purchasing became general and also
to the firmness of raw material, which
does not encourage delay in providing for
Recent conditions In hides and leather
are accentuated and It Is evldentfy the
policy of strong Interests to sustain hides
at the best position, while neglecting
leather. Foreign dry hides are unchanged
at the recent advance. Shipments of foot
wear from New England factories con
tinue heavy, but fewer new orders are
placed owing to the high quotations.
Failures this week numbered 190 in the
United States, against 150 last year, and
27 in Canada, against 30 a year ago.
