Russia Will Then Join in
Peace Congress.
Proposition of Roosevelt h
' Accepted in Principle,
Ambassador Informs the Secretary
His Government Is In Hearty
Sympathy With Movement
President Will Rest.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 30. Russia is unwilling-
to Join the powers In a second
peace conference at The Hague until her
war "with Japan Is ended. -
The Russian reply to Secretary Hay's
circular note to the powers of October
23 last, inviting: them "in .the name of the
President, to reassemble In conference at
The Hague, to complete the postponed
work of the first conference," was deliv
ered verbally to Secretary Hay today by
COunt Casslnl, the Russian Ambassador.
The Ambassador was requested by his
government to say that Russia heartily
accepted In principle the invitation to a
second conference at The Hague, and
readily associated herself with the Amer
ican Government to complete the mission
of the first assembly convened under the
leadership of the Russian Emperor. The
Ambassador was further requested to say
that while the Russian government very
sincerely cherished these views, it did not
consider the moment opportune for the
convening of such a conference, and it
therefore must withhold Its formal ac
ceptance of the invitation until the war
in the Par East was at an end.
Secretary Hay and Count Casslnl were
In conference for nearly an hour. The
Ambassador was careful to assure the
Secretary .that his government welcomed
the Invitation of the President as an ad
mirable evidence of the American Gov
ernment's appreciation of the beneficent
results of the first conference, and re
gretted the necessity of suggesting a post
ponement of the work then begun a work
in which, the Russian government no less
than the American, is keenly interested.
Thanks the Ambassador.
Secretary Hay thanked the Ambassador
for the cordiality with which the declara
tion of Russia's adherence in principle to
the proposition had been conveyed to the
American Government, and assured him
he -would forthwith transmit the reply to
the President. Although different In form,
the Russian reply does not differ in ef
fect Ironvrthat of Great Britain, France
and the other European powers, practical
ly all of which already have answered the
ksvitatlorf. "While Russia is the first
power specifically to suggest a postpone
ment until thfe' close of the war, all the
powers in expressing their approval of the
proposition, reserved for future pour
parleurs the . time when the conference
should be held.
It caji be. stated this Government is well
pleased with the reception its note has re
ceived. The powers signatory to The
Hague . convention have been officially
committed to a second conference at some
future time. In his note Secretary Hay
purposely omitted suggesting k date for
the assembling of tho conference, realiz
ing that certain powers might (hesitate to
take up for final definition such compli
cated questions as the rights" of neutrals
at .a time when a great war was in prog
ress. So far as the Russian government is
concerned, it is stated it is naturally
averse to discussion of the many import
ant questions which would come before
the conference at a time when its at
tention lg devoted to a foreign war.
In diplomatic circles the news of Rus
sia's conditional reply caused some sur
prise. Tho caution -which characterized
even tho consideration of the note at St
Petersburg made several Ambassadors
here doubtful about the favorable recep
tion of the American note This doubt
has been removed, however, by the
friendly terms in which the note today
was couched.
For the present It Is probable the Amer
ican Government will rest on its oars.
"When the Far Eastern war enters on its
final stage this Government will be ready
to follow up its proposition. In the mean
time, should Russia's attitude change,
ehe will find the American Government
ready to lead the powers Immediately to
The Hague for the second conference.
King, in His Speech, Declares for Lib
eral and Peaceful Principles.
ROME, Nov. 30. King Victor Em
manuel, who was accompanied by
Queen Helena, reopened Parliament to
day. From his seat in the Senate at
the Plazzo Madama he read the speech
from the throne, expressing liberal
and peaceful principles, which were
enthusiastically applauded.
The weather was magnificent The
passing of the King to and from the
palace of the Senate was a gorgeous
spectacle. The streets through which
the royal cortege passed were lined
with troops, and behind them the peo
Rle were packed, while the windows,
balconies and terraces were crowded
with sightseers.
Tho sovereigns were accompanied by
Prince and Princess Francis Joseph of
Battenburg, Princess Xenia of Mon
tenegro and Elenea of Servla, the
Count of Turin, the Duke of Genoa
and the Duke of Drbano. The King
and Queen rode in beautiful gala all
ver-mountea carnages, escorted oy a
guard of honor of mounted culras-
seurs, whose helmets, breast plates and
swords sparkled in the sun. As the
procession proceeded through the
streets, the cannon of the castle of St
Angelo boomed, the historic bells of
the capltol rang1 out a welcome, the
men shouted "Long live the King," and
the women waved their handkerchiefs.
The hall of tho Senate was crowded.
and there was an especially brilliant
gathering in the diplomatic tribune.
where the united states was represent
ed by Ambassador and Mrs. Meyer. The
whole assembly stood and applauded
for several minutes when the sorer
elgns entered. Premier Glolittl called
the roll-call of the members of the
Senate, who took the customary oath,
and then the King, sitting on the
throne, read his speech.
The speech began by greeting the rep
resentatives of the nation, and the King
then referred to the birth of the crown
prince as "a much-desired event which
has rejoiced my house, while the gen
eral manner in "which the people joined
in the good wishes and felicitations
showed, that-the joy of my family is the
Joy of the nation, and demonstrated the
indissoluble union between the monarchy
and the people which has formed so
great a part of the success of the coun
try." Continuing, he said: "When for the
first tlmo I spoke before Parliament I
affirmed my strong belief in liberty. My
experience since then has confirmed my
belief and has persuaded me that only
with liberty can the ponderous problems
now standing before all the peoples of the
world, raised by the new aspirations and
new attitudes of the .social forces, be
"My government will continue to follow
the -policy of granting ample liberty
within the limits of tho law, which should
be strongly defended, and which has met
with such strong approbation from the
The King then announced tho introduc
tion of bills having the object of progres
sively elevating the condition of the work
ing classes, facilitating an equitable and
peaceful solution of. the. conflicts between
capital and labor, substituting" co-operation
among all classes for sterile strug
gles, and replacing strikes, "which mean
victory for the strongest, . by arbitration,
which means victory for justice."
The King then referred to the conclusion
of commerlcal treaties with Germany,
Switzerland and Austria-Hungary,4 and re
marked: "Italy has been the first to demonstrate
,that the protectionist current dominating
the world does not prevent commercial
agreements when governments are guided
by sentiments of equity and solidarity."
He insisted on tho necessity for main
taining the balance of the budget and the
strength of the army and navy, and said
in conclusion:
"The economic condition of Italy is mak
ing evident progress. This happy condi
tion has been reached chiefly through
peace, assured by solid alliances and fin
cere friendships, and emphasized by the
affectionate demonstrations which oc
curred at the time of the visits to Romo of
the German (Emperor, the King of Eng
land and the President of France. Arbi
tration treaties have been concluded with
France, Great Britain and Switzerland,
while negotiations for similar agreements
with the United States and other coun
tries are well advanced. Thus Italy con
tinues her mission of peace."
Germany Breaks Off Negotiations for
a Commercial Treaty.
BERLIN, Nov. 30. The negotiations
for a commercial treaty between Ger
many and Austria-Hungary have been
broken off completely, and in the pres
ent mood of the German government
they will not be resumed unless tho
initiative comes from Austria-Hungary.
Interior Secretary Count von
Posadowski-Wehner, who has been con
ducting the negotiations at the Austrian,
capital for the last four weeks, returned
here today. The semi-official newspa
pers are exasperated over what Is de
fined here as "Austro-Hungary obt
stinacy," and threats are made to de
nounce the existing treaty and open
tariff hostilities as a means of showing
Austria-Hungary that reciprocity, is
better than a tariff war.
Situation Considered Grave.
VIENNA, Nov. SO. Count von Posa-
dowsky-Wehner, the German Secretary,
having failed In the negotiation of an
Austro-German treaty, left Vienna today.
returning to Berlin. There was not a
single representative of Austria-Hungary
at the station to bid him farewell.
The situation arising out of the col
lapse of these negotiations Is considered
grave, and at the Foreign Office an earn
est hope Is expressed that economic dif
ferences will not be extended to the po-
Looks With Misgiving on Acts of
Britain In Southwestern Asia.
ST. PETERSBURG, Nov. 2. The state
ment that Russia is concentrating troops
on the Afghan frontier is denied. Never
theless, it is undoubtedly true that Rus
sia is watching with some misgivings the
British plans for tho reorganization and
increase of the Indian army, as well as
the dispatch of a deputation to Persia.
Coming on the heels of the Thibetan ex
pedition, theee moves naturally create the
suspicion that Great Britain is taking
advantage of Russia's preoccupation in
the Far East to strengthen her position
on the Indian frontier of Persia.
Russia seems keenly alive to the
situation, but no open move has yet
been made, and the authorities are not
disposed to admit that any is in con
templation as a counter-move in Per
sia, The deputation from the Shah of
Persia, headed by Arlza Kahn, ex-MIn-ister
to Russia, which goes to Constan
tinople in a similar capacity, is receiv
ing considerable attention. The depu
tation is now on its way to St Peters
burg, and its ostensible purpose is to
visit and congratulate Emperor Nicho
las on the birth of an heir to the
throne. "While it Is not admitted here,
the idea prevails generally that the
mission Is not devoid , of political sig
nificance. The Emperor will give a
state dinner to celebrate the visit
Radicals Will Make Fruitless Objec
tion to Military Programme.
BERLIN, Nov. 30. Though it is prac
tically certain that the government's
new military programme will be ac
cepted by the Reichstag by a good ma
jority, it is evident the Radicals- will
not neglect tho opportunity to harass
the Ministry upon it One of the many
points ot attack will be the provision
to increase the cavalry by 28 squad
rons, forming, with the 17 existing
squadrons of mounted riflemen, nlno
new cavalry regiments.
The general staff declares that the
Increase Is necessary in order to pro
vide all corporations with a proper
complement: but the opposition will
claim that the proposed Increase is due
to the Emperors fondness for this
spectacular arm of the service.
Approves Big War Credit.
SOFIA, Nov. 30. The National Assem

Minister for an extraordinary credit of

NEW YORK, Nov. CO. Plans t or organ

objects as adopted at Chicago and In

for continuance of tho open shop.

Legislature Will This Winter Make
Vigorous Effort to Gain This End
in State of Oregon.
In the Legislature this Winter a vigor
ous effort will be made to remodel tho
Oregon local option law after the Ohio
act which passed the General Assembly
of that state last April, and was ap
proved by Governor Herrlck. The Ohio
act differs from the Oregon In four es
sential particulars, namely:
First, the Ohio act applies only to resi
dence districts of municipal corporations,
whereas the Oregon law applies to any
precinct and group of contiguous precincts
ana any county m the state.
Second, the Ohio law requires petitions
for prohibition elections to be signed by
at least 40 per cent of the qualified elec
tors of the residence district: whereas In .
Oregon but 10 per cent of the registered j
electors of the affected precinct or goup j
of precincts or of the county are re- I
quired (
Third, the Ohio act provides that, after
a prohibition election has been held, the i
question cannot again be brought to vote !
for two years, whether the election shall '
have gone dry or wet; whereas the Ore- j
gon law provides that a second election
may be called In two years If tho elec
tion preceding "went dry"; but that, if
the election "went wet" the next elec
tion may be held one year afterward.
Fourth, the Ohio act does not apply to
manufacturers and wholesale dealers In
liquor; whereas the Oregon law applies
to both.
Alteration of the Oregon law In these
four respects will have strong champions
In the Legislature, and the amendments
are regarded as quite likely to carry.
The Multnomah delegation in both houses
will doubtless support amendment of the
law; Indeed, that probability Is manifest
both from he personal feelings of the
members and from the majorities r61led
up against the law In this county In June
and In November.
Liquor forces will make no attempt
to eliminate local option from single
precincts or from residence districts,
but they will fight county prohibition.
In this they will be opposed by such
elements as the Anti-Saloon League and
the prohls on the ground that prohibi
tion, if Impracticable of enforcement In
Multnomah, is not so in rural counties.
In this contest the familiar line of
demarkatlon between local optionists
and prohibitionists 13 likely to be
erased. The real purpose of local op
tion Is not prohibition, but the elimina
tion of the liquor traffic In certain pre
cincts or districts, suoh as where homes
or schools are situated. But the pur
pose of prohibition Is the elimination
of the traffic everywhere.
. Many persons who are local option
ists In Multnomah are prohibitionists
In other counties; therefore while they
are ready or half-way willing to see
Multnomah have straight precinct op
tion they insist on leaving to other
counties the option of prohibition.
The Oregon law Is such that in 23
counties the Issue of county prohibition
was presented on November S, despite
the desire of many elector to voto on
the question of precinct v prohibition
only. In Multnomah it was impossible
for an elector to vote his home precinct
"drv" without votlncr for prohibition in
the whole county. Consequently there I
is a strong demand for amendment of
the law so as to make It a pure pre-
clnt option act or at least to restrain
its operation to residence districts.
In Ohio the prohibition question has
been fought out for many years and She
Brannock law whose essential differ
ences from the Oregon law have been
pointed out in the foregoing Is the re
sultant of the long contest As has
been cited, the Brannock law makes
prohibition effective only in residence
districts, and furthermore, 40 per cent
of the qualified electors of the district
must sign a petition for an election,
else no election can be held. In Ore
gon the percentage of registered elect--ors
required is only 10, which means
that a very small number of voters can
bring up the prohibition question every
year. Even If prohibition should fau
each time In the face of an overwhelm
ing "wet" majority, still a small coterie
of agitators could keep up the turmoil.
In a precinct which has 200 voters only
20 votes aro now needed to call an
election, but in Ohio 80 would be re
quired. In Precinct 12, in which is "Welnhard'a
brewery, 427 electors are registered, 43
of whom can require an election, not
withstanding the precinct wont "wet"
by 273 votes against 28. If prohibition
had carried In that precinct the brew
ery would have had to quit business.
Next June 43 electors will be able to
menace the brewery with another elec
tion. For this reason and because
breweries and wholesale liquor houses
vend Intoxicants by the glass, the Leg
islature will be asked to exempt them
from law.
