LONDON, Dec. .22. The Persian lega
tion here -announced at noon today that
Persia had acceeded to the Russian de
mand. The British Foreign office, shortly
after noon, received official confirma
tion from the British minister at Te
heran that Persia had yleiaed before the
Russian threats and had granted all the
demands contained in the Russian ulti
matum of November 29. These Included
the dismissal of V. Morgan Shuster, the
American who has been acting as treas
urer general of Persia since June last.
Details have not yet reached the Brit
ish government, but It Is believed In
official circles that Russia's demand
that the appointment of foreign advisers
to the Persian government should here
after be subject to Russian- and Brills);
approval has been found, with ' soma
slight modifications, agreeable to both
Terms ot lltlutatatn.
The Russian ultimatum, to the terms
of which Persia ha now acceded, was
delivered to the Persian government by
the Russian minister at Teheran on No
vemtier 29. It demanded, beside the dls
missal of Mr. 'Shuster, an apology from
the Persian government because of It
Interference with the property ot Persians
under Russian' protection and also the
payment of an indemnity to Russia for
the expenses It had Incurred in sending
troops onto Persian territory. The
National Council declined at first to com
ply with Russia's demands, although the
cabinet was Inclined to do so. Yesterday
Russia threatened to order the advance
of the 4,000 troops of all arm from
Kaabin unless Persia receded within
twenty-four hours. A further discussion
of the question at Issue between the mem
ber of the Persian cabinet and the Na
tlonal Council evidently led the latter to
' see the advisability of yielding to Russia's
Shiaater'a Salary n Problem.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 22. Much Interest
was manifested by the State department
officials today In the report that Persia
had finally decided to agree to the Rus
sian ultimatum. No information of the
report came either to the State depart
ment or to the Persian legation here.
An interesting question has been raised
as to who is responsible for Mr, Shuster'
salary for the remaining three years ot
his contract. It Is believed Mr. Shuster'
contract contained a provision that In
the event of his dismissal for any reason,
whatever, he was to receive a stipulated
sum. If the act of the Persian govern

Great Slump in
NEW YORK, Dec. 22.-One of the
greatest slumps In Immigration ever
recorded at the port of New York la being
written Into the records at Ellis Island
during the closing day of the year. Al
ready the records show that nearly 300,
000 fewer Immigrants have landed there
up to the present time, than for the cor
responding period In 1910 and Indications
are Commissioner Williams states, that
there will be a reduction of 30 per cent
or more from 1910 figures er the year.
The Incoming tlilo of humanity Is lower
now- than at any time since 1908 with the
tide at Its ebb, every ship leaving for
Europe 1 crowded as never before. One
vessel sailing a couple of days ago left
00 steerage passengers on the wharf be-
ause of Inability to find accommodations
aboard for them. During the first ten
Jays of December, 1910. 13,700 third-class
passengers sailed for Kurope; this year
25.243. Out-bound vessels carried nearly
SO per cent more third-class passenger
his year than Inst.
Here are the figures that tell the story:

The figures for 1911 are Incomplete, hav

and all figures refer to third-class pas-
The decrease may mean one of several
things," said William Williams, commis
sioner of immigration. "It may mean
that industrial conditions here are much
disturbed. It may mean that third-class
passengers are more prosperous and are
going to and from more than usual, or
that the long looked for natural ebb In
the tide has come. Personally, I don't
know what it mean."

Suffolk county Jail, took a turn for th
worse last night, according to a state

Mr. Morse called at the jail and re

ST. PETERSBURG, Deo. 12. A legis
lative proposal to provide for tariff war
schedules applicable to the United Btates
t the expiration of the Russo-Amerlcan
treaty of commerce and navigation of
IS32 has been Introduced Into the Puma
by ex-President Ouchkoff and Other
itrners representing the Octobrlst and
atlonalist parties, which control the ma
jority of the Duma.
The bill proposes to raise existing Rus
sian duties by 10) per cent and also to
impose a duty of 100 per cent on articles
which are admitted free under the pres
ent Russian tariff. Besides these Impost
tlons the bill proposes also to levy double
the gross weight tax established by the
law of June 21, 1901, on merchandise ar
riving by sea, and to levy a double ton
nage tax. Should the present American
tonnage tax be raised to the disfavor of
Russian vessels, then the Russian ton
nage tax will be correspondingly in
creased. It is said the schedules are to be ap
plicable to all countries which do not
grant Russia the most favored nation
reatment in commerce- and navigation.
The proposal will be submitted to a
The necessity for the proposed legis
lation is explained In an accompanying
declaration, In which It is stated that the
regular American tariff schedules which
will be applicable to Russian goods at th
expiration of the treaty of commerce and
navigation of 1832 will be so high as to
have a prohibitive character and th
they greatly exceed the Russian normal
tariff and navigation taxes whtoh would
be naturally applicable to American
good in the absence of the treaty.

ST. PETERSBURG, Deo. 22. The prov

"The abrogation of the treaty between
Russia and America has a direct connec
tion with the annual Russian agitation
which has been energetically conducted
In America for the re-admisslon of Amer
ican citizens ot Jewish faith. Article
of the treaty establishes the mutual
rights of entry, but contains a stipula
tion for the observance ot internal laws,
"Deeming, in spite of this stipulation,
that the enforcement of the general Rus
sian lawB in regard to foreigners of the
Jewish religion in the case of American
Jewish citizen constitutes an infringe
ment of the treaty, the house voted
resolution for its abrogation.
Claims Right to Enforce Laws.
There cannot be any doubt that this
view is unfounded. The Russian govern
ment and its representatives abroad can
not but fulfill the requirements of the
Russian law contained in paragraph 213
to 236 of the passport statute and par
agraphs 819 and the following ones of the
law on special rights, as long as these
remain in force.
"On the other hand, the question of the
admission or non-admission Into Russia
of categories of foreigners belong to the
province of internal legislation on the
general principle of international law a
well as on the strength of article I of the
treaty of 1832.
'Thus the United States has enacted
very strict regulations, seriously limiting
the right of Intry of foreigners, and there
is no doubt that the federal government
would ward off any attempt to dispute
the legality of those regulations from an
International point of view."
I'nlted States Laws Quoted.

'if we take into consideration, also,
that the American law imposes a head

how stein are the restrictions to which
Russians arriving in America are sub
Jetted. We do not question the right of
the federal government to apply any 1m
migration laws which are dictated by
reasons of state, but we must not for

for the abrogation of the treaty of 1832
adduced in the resolution of the house of
representatives la unfounded."
M. Ouchkoff s proposal, bearing 114 sig
natures, was laid on the table of the
Duma today. The house at once voted to
submit the bill to the financial committee.
The signatories include Octoberlsls, na
