Unless sn agreement Is reached by
the peace envoys demands, the exact
terms will not be made public. The
only exception to this determination
will-be, in case of a completed treaty.
Tts due to a taoit understanding
'between the two governments entered
into before the election of Washington
as a meeting place was decided upon.
Russia is msnife ting a disposition to
take the public into fall confidence,
hoping bv this connection that the
rnblio opiniou will force the Japanese
to modify their terms. On the other
hand Japan la disposed to surround
to be made to Rossis if lasting peace
is io be o'oiaiued. Soiom ous etu
baraisment could follow through ex
planations that necessarily would have
to be made to the Mikado's people for
any action taken, it such concisions
were msde and the Japanese people
bad knowledge of the original demands.
It I expected now tht the Rue
sian's answer be given to tb- Jap"

private wires were busy sending a draft
of the term to St Petersburg and ex

then be notified and the convention

Today I wish to speak to you on one
feature of oar uatioual foreign policy
and one feature of oar national domes
tic policy.
Tbe Monroe Doctrine is not a part
of international law. Hut It is tbe
fundamental , feature of our entire
foreign policy so tar as the Western
Hemisphere is concerned, and it has

There are eight men at present in
tbe cells and when deputy sheriff Tom
Johnson yesterday afternoon went in
to lock them op for tbe night, be made
the usual rounds to see if they were

Brown's clothes. He staffed his over
alls with bedding, his shoes were in
tbe proper pla e and in fact the entire
makeup was such as to deceive anyone.
However Brown at this time was biding
behind that portion of the jail which
is enclosed and tbe rear Is not visible
from the front.
. Along about eitiht o'clock in tbe
aveninir a) r. Johnson had oocaslon to
return to tbe office and upon meeting
the diputy sheriff of Wallowa county,
invited him to accompany him, and
after showing him the new court house
took him in to see the jail and In
walking around the jail, be stepped on

suspicion and he lighted a match and
saw that three bricks bad been re

Fossiliiation, of course, means death,
whether to an individual, a govern-1
ment, or a doctrine.
It Is out of ths question to claim a
right and yet shirk the responsibility
for exeroislng that right. When we
announce a doUov snob as ths Monroe
Doctrine we thereby commit ourselves
to accepting the consequences of the
policy, and these consequences from'
time to time alter.
Lit us look for a moment at what
the Monroe Doctrine really Is. It for
bids the territorial encroachment of
non- American powers on Amtrloan
soil. Its purpose Is partly to secure
this Nation against seeing great mili
tary powers obtain new footholds la
the Western Hemisphere, and. partly
to secure to oar fellow republics south
of us the chance to develope along
their own Hoes without being oppress
ed or conquered by non-American
nowera. As we have srown more and
more powerful our advocaoy of this
doctrine has been received with more
and more respect: but what has tended
most to give the rtoctiice standing
msan what we say and are preparea
to back it up, bat that we mean to re-
oognlze our ohllsatlons to foreige
peonlea do less than ta insist upon our
own rights.
We can not permanently adhere to
the Monroe Doctrine unless we succeed
in making it evident in the first place
that wa do not intend to treat it ia
any suape or way as an excuse tor ag
grandizement on our pari at the ex
pense bl the republics to the south ot
oi; seoond, that we do not intend to
permit it to be used by any o! these
republics as a shield to protect that
republic from tbe consequences of its
own misdeeds against foreign nsiions;
third, that inasmuch as by this doc
trine we prevent other nations from
Interfering on this side of tbe water,
we shall ourselves in good faith try to
help those of our sister republics,
whiob need such help, upward toward
peace and order.
As regards the first point we must

among the nations is our growing
