Ruilssl Are Dissatisfied.
ST. PETERSBURG, Aug. 3I.-Judging
from the press comment today on peace It
would appear that while pleased with tho
prospect of the removal of further blood
shed from the far east, a large portion of
the public Is unable to reconcile Itself to
the loss of territory, however Insignificant.
The national pride seems to be offended by
tbe cession of part of the Island of Sak
halin. Yesterday the people spoke of "today's
shame," meaning peace. Many of the ut
terances show evidences of regret that the
army had not been given another chance to
try the fortune of war, though no one
questions or underrates the humanity of
the oourse followed by President Roosevelt,
the plenipotentiaries and Emperor Nicho
las. ' The tone of many of the utterances
concerning peace Induces one to believe
that a further sacrifice of human lives
would not be unacceptable If the national
self-respect could be regained thereby.
One word of disapproval of tbe terms from
Toklo suggesting that Japan-did not desire
to be bound by the terms might result In a
flare up here la, defense pf.war and the na
Embittered by what they declare to be a
dishonorable peace the extreme patrolts do
at, aJways refrain from criticising Presl
ftaot Roosevelt and the American people,
Wtio, they declare, have offended Russian
sentiment by underrating the Russian prep
arations, strength and ability to cope with
the Japanese. The people, almost without
exception,-, welcome peace and express the
hope that the shackles which kept Amer
ican enterprise out of Russia will be re
moved. Preference for American enter
prise tn Russia as against German Is ex
pressed, ,'" '
Expressions of the Press.
The Russ says:
All we could have expected was avoid
ance of 'diplomatic defeat. This seems to
have been accomplished.
The Novoe Vremya says:
Japan Is dissatisfied with the peace. So
are we. President Roosevelt was In favor
of Russia ceding the Island of Sakhalin
and paying an Indemnity. This does not
please us. This peace Is only one phase in
our relations with Japan, which are only
beginning. We shall rest and then doubt
less go on. As men who have spent eight
een troublous months together we now
shake each other by the hand and say au
if voir. .English and American capitalists
should rejoice, over the peace.
The SJovo.. says that peace should have
been concluded before the battle of the
Sea of Japan, ' adding: "Than wa would
not have lost any territory. Tha present
agreement with Japan may result In rela
tions which will reward us and heal the
wounds Jnftloted on Russian patriotism by
the war." . .
Tha Syn Orchestra says:
Whatever we may have paid at Ports
mouth, It was not the price of peace, but
of war. We fear that secret articles have
been signed which are disadvantageous to
Tha Kasha Shlan remarks:
We must acknowledge that the peace
terms are most disadvantageous. We can

Views of Japanese Financier.
LONDON, Aug. Jl.-Koretiyo Takahashl.
tha financial commissioner of Japan, In
an Interview today said:
The Japanese government, In prosecuting
the war, never had In mind the question
of having to depend upon an Indemnity.
The - government had prepared Itself for
any emergency, and at the present mo
ment there is no less than $1i5,0u0,0o0 un
touched In London, Germany and the
United States. This being the case, I see
no necessity for the Issue of a new loan.
Uad peace not been concluded my govern
ment would have raised an Internal loan
of $lofi,ouo,000 for the further prosecution
of the war. This was the plan of the
government at the time the conference
met. I consider that the present resources
of Japan are ample for clearing up the
war and meeting the Incidental expenses
thereby Involved. So, If Japan has In view
a new plan for the Issue of a fresh loan, It
will be for the purpose of converting a
previous loan bearing higher Interest. I
have not heard that my government has
any such Intention.
When questioned regarding the conditions
of peace, Mr. Takahasht continued:
All far-seeing . Japanese will hall with
satisfaction the conclusion of peace,
although there must be a feeling of gen
eral regret that Russia did not display a
more reasonable attitude in recognising
that Japan's terms were not only rrason
able, but very moderate. In tha circum
stances all Japanese who take a broad
minded view of the situation must recog
nise that the decision of their emperor
was the wisest possible. Had the govern
ment Insisted on an Indemnity It Is clear
that the war would have continued. The
objects for which this war was waged
already have been more than achieved, and
to continue the war for a pecuniary con
sideration would not have been worthy of
the Japanese nation. I do not share the
view that this is a patched up peace or
that fresh conflicts are likely to ensue.
Such a contingency has been amply pro
vided for by the Anglo-Japanese alliance.
Mr. Takahasht looks for one of the earli
est developments In the far east In the
education of China by western methods,
which has already commenced.

CARMEN AT PAR IN SHOPS

ONE HOUR A DAY EXTRA TIME ALLOWED
Enormous Grain Crops of Nebraska
Throwa Tremendoua Demands
on tha Shopmen of the
Skilled carmen ara In demand at the
Union Pacific shops, where good men are
being put to work as fast as they apply
or can be secured. This applies only to the
car department, for Superintendent Mc
Keen says the machine shops are running
at full capacity now and have been for
some time. The enormous grain crops In
Nebraska and all over the west Is making
a heavy demand upon the car service de
partment for every available car, so that
a hustle Is being made to get Into shape
all possible cars.
As a matter of fact, fifty men have been
put to work In the ear department In each
of the last two days, and fifty more ara
wanted. The men have returned to tha
ten-hour day Instead of the nine-hour, re
ceiving extra pay for the extra hour.
Motor car No. 1, almost a duplicate to
gasoline motor car No. L will be turned
out of the shops In a few days In a fin
ished state. No decision has been reached
as to where this car will ba put Into
Railroads Short on Cars.
Reports come that several of the rail
roads are somewhat short of cars to handle
the grain, which Is beginning to move In
goodly quantities. Most of the roods deny
any shortage, while ..some others admit
they are having to bustle to handle the
grain that Is being moved In various direc
tions. The Missouri Pacific had to hustle
to get cars for the enormous wheat crop
which Kansas grew this year, a consider
able part of which was put right on the
cars. The price of wheat was good and
the farmers thought that because of tha
enormity of the crop and the good price
they might as well dispose of what they
could. The northern wfceat Is not ready
and tha Minneapolis millers took a great
deal of mixing wheat from the south.
Corn also Is moving, although the big
fall movement haa not opened out. There
la a good price on grain, which will be
raised hi cent October 1, and this Is some
Inducement for the farmers to ship at this
time. The Burlington says It haa not been
Short of cars, but that the movement
started so suddenly It took a hustle to
get the grain oars In motion and to have
them where they were needed. There Is
considerable grain moving to Chicago for
export and corn Is being sent In all direc
tions for feeders. It having been realised
long ago that It was cheaper to ship grain
to stock than to ship the stock to the
New Shops for McKeen.
Julius Kruttschnltt, director of mainten
ance and operation of the Harrlman lines,
was In the city for a short time Thursday,
enroute east. He spent the time of his
stay In company with W. R. McKeen, Jr.,
superintendent of motive power of the
Union Pacific. Mr. Kruttschnltt said:
"I suppose you have had full reports of
the millions which the Union Pacific Is
spending to Improve the lines in Nebraska
and west. We are replacing miles and
miles of the old rails with new ninety
pound rails and are alBo working out the
double track scheme as fast as possible,
not only on paper, but on the right-of-way.
Mr. McKeen must, have some new shops
and there probably will be started this
fall. The plans are about completed, but
you know about the plans for -shops.- They
roust be drawn, and then we" have found
that the easiest way to suit everyone on
them Is to .nail them to a tree and let all
Interested parties take a shot at them.
"We have large forces of men at work
on the Maryvllle line, which will give the
Union Pacific a practical line from Omaha
to Kansas City. We hove the line to To
peka already, and the Maryvllle branch is
building, so by the use of the St. Joseph
& Grand Island to Hastings, we will have
an Omaha-Kansas City line. The use of
the Burlington line from Hastings to Kear
ney has been chewed over considerably,
but nothing definite has been done."
Mr. Kruttschnltt went west with Mr.'
Harrlman when the latter passed through
Omaha enroute to the Onent.

OUR LETTER BOX.
Mr. Flemlnsr to Mr. Fink.
OMAHA. Aug. $1. To the Editor of Tha
Bee: Please my for me, answering Mr.
Fink's wondering questions, that there Is
r.O connection whatever between the order
of court td re-offer certain properties In
West Side and my desire to facilitate the
assignment of tax certificates now held by
The order of court Is wholly on the in
stance of the city legal department and I
have nothing to do with It In any way. Pre
vious to reading what .Mr. Fink Is reported
to have said, I knew nothing of the trans
action except that the assistant city at
torney told, me within the last two days
that the property was In West Side, and
had been bid In hy'yny predecessor, repre
senting the city, at the February scavenger
sales at full amount of the tax tn place of
the scale adopted by the city, and a cor
rection watt' necessary. I have had no oc
casion to 'know who th owners are, ona
or many, what or where the property Is
or take any part whatever In the transac
tion. Mr. Fink has gone put of his way to In
sinuate unworthy motives and a connec
tion, neither o" them existing, and I advise
him to be a little mora careful. I am
quoted by Mr. Fink, aa saying there was
1106,000 of certificates held b$T the city, while
ha soys there are nearer !3D,000 worth. My
statement was that tha city and county
had bid In on property within the city llm-
lta on May and August alone over 1100,000.
I had no means of. knowing the amount
remaining In his hands, so did not attempt
to name It. Tho more there Is tha better
field to operate In and as already expressed,
I propose to do nothing to Interfere with
Mr. Fink's prerogative or contrary to law.
His Imagination haa been very fertile lately.
I have no thought to do anything but pro
mote and facilitate- the sole of certificates
In which the city la Interested, Just as I
first suggested to him (he did not. as ha
states, make the suggestion to me), which
he approved. Anything I do In the direc
tion will have the authority and sanction
of the city legal department and city coun
cil and no Interference with the county's
rights or interests or of the oounty treas
urer will, I am sure, either be allowed or
sought. WILLIAM FLEMING.

AUTOS FOR POLICE PATROL
Benstne Bssales Are Urged by Chief
Instead of Horse
Police patrol automobiles are being con
sidered by the Board of Fire and Police
Commissioners for use In Omaha. Chief
Donahue Inclines toward their use and says
many advantages will result over -the
clumsy horse power wagons now In. use.
It Is up to the department to get a new
wagon, and 'In making the change tha
chief .thinks. Jt would be well to look up
the practicability of autoa for the service.
He says they are In use In Los Angeles,
Cleveland. Akron and other cities and the
police officials are enthusiastic about them.
Ha believes the Omaha department should
have two gasoline motor cars, to be bought
at an estimated cost of 13,000. One, in the
chief's opinion, should hold about fifteen
passengers and have a maximum speed of
sixteen miles an hour, and the other
should be smaller, with room for a squad
of five men and capable of traveling twenty-five
miles dti hour or faster.
"A burglar working at Fortieth and .Far
nom streets can hear the present wagon
almost as soon aa It is driven out of the
police station at Eleventh and" Dodge
streets," says th- chief. "The result Is the
burglar gets away every time. An automo
bile would help a lot in this way, as well
as contributing a great deal toward speed
In any kind of a hurry-up call. I think
they would work a saving under the main
tenance of horses. Our shoeing bills alone
run from 130 to 140 a month and repairs to
the steel-tired Wagons Is another expense.
There are few places in Omaha where an
automobile can't go."
COWELL IS READY FOR ACTION
Chairman of County Committee Acts
on Tradition of Federal
Chairman Robert Cowell of the republi
can county' committee has returned from
the east and. bright-eyed and smiling,
took up his work where he dropped It
three weeks ago at Thomas Kllpatrlck at
Co.'s. He did not seem In tha least
alarmed by the reports that the antl-ma-chlne
faction of the committee had been
planning rude deslgna upon the dignity
of his position while he was away from
home, buying goods in New York and
Boston and taking a small vacation with
his family at Lake Chautauqua. He. an
swered that he will cal a meeting of the
county committee for Saturday, September
I, to arrange for sending delegates from
Douglas county to tha state convention,
"I shall be guided by the majority of the
committee, as I have been In the past, and
have no Intentions of assuming to be a
dictator," said Chairman Cowell. "If the
antls believed there was any legality la
their claim that a primary election could
be held under the Dodge law to select
delegates to the state convention, why was

There was plenty of time for It, and every

exist today. I waa even approached by a
prominent antl with a proposition that both
factions be given equal representation on
the delegation to the state convention, to

gave no definite reply, but merely asked
whether If the antls had control of ths
committee, would they be that kind to the

An Interesting occasion was the visit of
John A. Crelghton and a party of his
friends Thursday afternoon to Investigate
the Edward Crelghton Institute on Eight
eenth street, opposite the city hall. Though
he had furnished the means for equipping
and furnishing this magnificent Institution
this was the first time Count Crelghton had
entered the building. He left the construc
tion to the president of Crelghton univer
sity, Father Dowllng, who reported to him
from time to time and kept him Informed
of what was going on.
Though Mr. Crelghton Intended this edi
fice as a worthy monument to his brother
he waa surprised to find that It far ex-
reeded his anticipations. It Is a building
SxlW feet, fourtories. and each floor fur
nishes about 8,000 square feet of space. He
was Informed by Dean Metsler that the
dental department, occupying most of the
third and fourth floors. Is, without excep
tion, the best equipped dental college In the
United States. It will be news to the peo
ple of Omaha to hear that they have such
an establishment in their midst. All
branches of study except anatomy will be
conducted In this building. Dissection will
be taught In the Crelghton Medical college
on Fourteenth and Davenport.
Palatial Law Library, s
The law department and law library oc
cupy the second story. The lawyers of the
city will have palatial quarters In the
southeast corner. A large lounging and
smoking room Is set apart nearby for pro
fessors and students who wish to enjoy
their Havanas while reading or consulting.
T. J. Mahoney Is dean of this department
and Miss E. F. McCartney Is registrar.
The lower floor Is devoted to pharmacy,
under the charge of Dean Edmund Thorp,
who formerly conducted the Omaha College
of Pharmacy, which has recently been
merged Into Crelghton university aa a de
partment. The faculty of the John A.
Crelghton Medical college will be largely
employed In the scientific work of this new
The extensive assembly hall In the (lrst
story will furnish accommodations for large
meetings of various kinds.
The pharmacy department will open Sep
tember 5; medical, Tuesday, September 1;
law, Tuesday, September 26; dental, Mon
day, October 2. The Edward Crelghton In
stitute Is strictly a high-grade professional
school, which enlarges to a great extent the
facilities enjoyed by Omaha for higher edu
cation. This new Institution Is expected to be of
great benefit to Nebraska and the adjacent
states, as well aa to the youth of Omaha.
Count Crelghton has established numerous
landmarks In Omaha and this latest Insti
tution will be one more enduring monument
to the name of the Crelghton family.
Among the visitors with Count Crelghton
were C. J. Smyth. J. M. Woolworth. H.
Baldwin, P. Heafey, Edward Hayden,
Joseph Hayden, John A. Schenk and T. J.

members of the association, sat down to a
spread In the auditorium of the association

bership of the boys1 department, and a
campaign will be Instituted at once whereby
it Is hoped to secure at least 100 new mem
bers. Each boy who is at present a mem
ber Is vested with full authority to go out
and got all the members he can, and a great
deal of enthusiasm was shown by those
present last night.
Speeches were made by ,W. P. Graham

rectors of the association, and Ralph Doub
of the boys' executive board.
