of Grant's Pass. Or.. American Consul
Oencral to Niuchwang, China, probably
has a better Idea of conditions In the
Orient, that Is. conditions In the war !
zone, than any other American. Mr. i
Miller, as representative of this Gov
ernment at a port once held by Russia,
but subsequently captured by Japan,
has been In a position to gather much
valuable Information, which has been
of benefit to his Government as well as
to the American newspapers. Prob
ably no other American enjoyed the
privileges which were accorded Mr.
Miller. He becama personally ac
quainted with many of the leading- of
ficers of both the Russian and the Jap
anese forces, naval as well as army
officers. He gained their confidence, in
many instances, and in that way gath
ered information that was denied other
men. And what is more. Mr. Miller,
while enjoying the confidence of both
Russians and Japanese, has never been
accused of betraying a confidence or of
showing partiality "for one or the other
of the contending nations. Throughout

and the protection of American Inter
ests, both from the Japanese and the
Russians. And in this stand he has
been sustained at every turn by the
Because of the position he occupies.
Sir. Miller does not feel at liberty to
discuss the Russo-Japanese War as
freejy as he might under other clrcumr
stances. He does, however, voice the
belief that the control of the Eastern
sea Is the key to the present situation;
that the nation which dominates the
Siberian and Manchurian coast will be
the nation to dictate the terms of
peace. It is Miller's opinion that the
Japanese, during- the coming Summer,
will direct their efforts towards Vladi
vostok with a view to capturing the
only remaining Russian seaport opening-
on the Pacific They appear to
be able to hold Port Arthur, which in
many ways was more Important to the
Russians than Vladivostok, because of
Its large shipyards and its adaptability
as a naval base.
Consul Miller says that the Japanese
are very anxious for the Baltic fleet to
put in appearance in Oriental waters.
From what he observed, there was no
uneasiness whatever among the Japanese
because this fleet was on Its way cast;
on the contrary there was a feeling of
restlessness because of the long time
that will be consumed in the Journey.
The Japanese are anxious to engage the
Russian fleet, confident that they will
annihilate it. as they did the fleet at
Port Arthur. If this Is accomplished,
the Japanese will be free- to make a
combined sea and land assault upon
Vladivostok, and they appear to be very
confident that their attack will succeed.
Even should they fail. If they annihilate
the Russian fleets in Eastern waters, they
will be able to effectively close all Rus
sian ports In Siberia, will be able to stop
all trade and ran practically put the
trans-Siberian Railroad out of business.
"Without a fleet to keep their ports open,
the great railroad will be of little benefit
to the Russians, for commerce and trade
will be at an end, and the great railroad.
Instead of being a resource will really be
como a burden and a tax.
According to the preveillng sentiment,
as Mr. Miller sizes it up, the Japanese
will not be satisfied to destroy the Baltic
fleet, but will insist upon actually cap
turing Vladivostok. If the fleet Is de-
i o t rrnI Vi Vtol Ini'oa Vt o Innijnpco TV 1 1 1 nr.
Banite an entirely new army to march
on this port, leaving Its present army In
possession of Port Arthur and the south
ern extremity of Manchuria. By a land
attack from the rear, and an attack from
the fleet In front, the Japanese will be
able to make it very uncomfortable for
the Russians In Vladivostok, even If they
fall to capture the city.
Japanese Want Harbin Also.
The probabilities arethat the Japanese
will not draw from their army at Port
Arthur to organize an expedition to
march north. At least they will not draw
on this army unless the Russians with
draw their troops from Mukden and other
positions they hold north of Port
Arthur. If such a move Is mdde. the
Japanese will probably start in pursuit
and attempt to capture the Russians
that are withdrawn. But the strong desire
of the Russians to hold Mukden, the
capital of Manchuria, and - also to pro
tect Harbin, will probably prevent them
drawinfJ 0ff any of their southern army.
Harbin is a point much to be desired by
. the Japanese, as it Is the controlling
. polnt on the Siberian Railroad. From
that nnlnt the road forks, one line run
nlng to Vladivostok, the other to Port
Arthur. If the Japanese capture that
point, and annihilate the Baltic fleet in
addition, the Russian- army In the East
would be cut off for all time. But Har
bin cannot be captured by the Japanese
army at Port Arthur unless Mukden falls,
and that city is so situated and so fortl-
fled that the probabilities are that it will
I hold out
j In the opinion of Consul Miller, the
I Japanese will concentrate their naval
forces against the Baltic fleet as soon as
it appears, and then, by controlling the
sea. if they are unable to dictate their
own terms of peace, will proceed against
Vladivostok, meanwhile holding Port Ar
thur, a nolnt they will probably never
Rigors of News Censorship
In this connection Mr. Miller tells Inter
esting stories of the difficulties of news
t paper correspondents in getting war news
i and getting It out to the world. The
! strictest censorship Is maintained In. the
I war zone, a great obstacle to correspond
t ents. Neither the Russian or Japanese
j armies have accorded correspondents the
Drlvlleges they enjoyed in the Spanish
"War. As far as possible, correspondents
have been kept from the front and have
) been allowed to observe little. The Chl-
! nese, however, are permitted to go about
! pretty much where they please, and are
. not molested. Correspondents, realizing
this fact, have enueavoreu to maae use. oi

think enough time has elapsed, they re
turn and lay before the anxious corre
spondents some story hatched In their
own fertile brains. They are absolutely
Independable; their word and their serv
ices are never to be relied upon. It Is
Targely because of the reports of Chinese,
messengers that so much Inaccurate news
has been telegraphed from the Orient.
The only time the Chinese render a real
service is when they carry messages from
the correspondents to-some telegraph sta
tion beyond the reach of censors. This
has to be done time and again, or else
very meager and Incomplete reports are
printed. As bearers of these messages,
the Chinese are more reliable than . as
news-gatherers; but even In this capacity
1 they Ttave caused , many a hard-working
correspondent to fall down at a critical
moment. Consul Miller says the Hie or a

WHY PANAMA WANTS MINISTER
Objections to Barrett's Plan of a Minister-Governor.
The Panama Star and Herald, in its
issue of January 2S, prints the follow
ing: "Much Interest has been awakened in
Panama over the recommendation In
President Roosevelt's message to Con
gress about the canal that the member
of the Canal Commission who adminis
trates the affairs of the Zone as Gov
ernor should also be made minister.
This recommendation of the President to
Congress Is understood to be the result
of a suggestion submitted by the Ameri
can Minister, Mr. Barrett, to Secretary
Taft when he was here, and later con
firmed, according to the press dispatches
from "Washington, to Secretary Hay.
"From what has been telegraphed
from- the United States, it Is to be
gathered that the minister made this
recommendation, as he believed, for
the best Interests of Panama and the
United States alike, holding that it
would do away with so-called red-tape
and delay and facilitate the relations of
both countries in both diplomatic and
executive matters. That the minister's
motives were unselfish are proved by
the fact that this change would remove
him from office.
"When, however, the news reached
Panama that this suggestion might be
favorably acted upon by the American
Government. President Amador and
many other Panamanians of different
political parties expressed their regret
to the minister that he had advised
this change and -the hope that cither
he would withdraw It or that the Con
ffrera at 'Washington might not act
upon it. At the same time it is known
that telegrams were sent to Minister
Obaldla In Washington advising that
he should request Secretary Hay not to
do awav with a separate Legation in
"The principal reasons advanced are:
'That the dignity of Panama as an
Independent nation entitles it to an in
dependent Legation of the United States.
"That many Important diplomatic
questions are continually arising which
should be handled by. a minister who is-
not also Governor or member of the
