THE MORNING- QREGQNIAff, FRIDAY, MAECH 10, 1905,
AIMED T INDIA
Russia Sending Troops
to Frontier
WITH GREAT SECRECY
Resents British Action in Thibet
and Persia.
A CONFLICT IS INEVITABLE
Large Forces Sent Through Turkes
tan to Afghan Border, and
Kashgar. Occupied Brit
ain's 'Hostile Acts.
ST. PETERSBURG, March 3 (11:55 P.
11.). Russia is-steadily reinforcing hor
military force, both in men and guns,
in the direction of the Indian frontier.
Sensational rumors of the dispatch of
reinforcements for Russian Turkestan
were current two months ago, but they
were then denied. Tho Associated Press
is now in a position to affirm their truth
fully on the authority of a traveler of
unimpeachable veracity, who has just
arrived' from Taahkend, and who was
a personal witness of the military ac
tivity on the recently completed Oren-hurg-Tashkend
and other strategic
railroads through, ilerv to Krasno
yodsk. Troops, guns and munitions of war
have been moving southward for two
months. Between the middle of Jan
uary and the middle of February 56
military trains, mostly carrying artil
lery, arrived at Tashkcnd. The guns
were mostly sent . from Merv. whence
a purely military line goes to K.ursk.
The traveler In question was in
formed, although lie had no personal
knowledge on the point, that Russian
troops had crossed the Mamlrs through
Terek Pass and garrisoned Kashgar.
The -Orenburg-Tashkend Railroad was
so crowded that the traveler was forced
to return by way of Krasnovodzsk.
Movement Veiled in Secrecy.
The Associated. Press informant
states that the greatest secrecy is ob
served. Travelers, who are rare, must
be provided with special permits from
the Minister of "War and kept under
the closest surveillance. The baggage
of this traveler was twice seized and
searched, although his papers were
regular. It is most significant that
local officials have been ordered not to
permit Englishmen to travel in Rus
sian Turkestan, and captains on the
Caspian have been forbidden to allow
Englishmen to land on the Eastern
shores. At Krasnovodsk the Informant.
of the Associated Press was told that
two English officers, who had been
traveling in disguise, are languishing
In prison.
Speaking generally, the Associated
Press informant said that the greatest
tranquillity provalled in the Turkestan
region. At Bokhara there were only
vague rumors that a war was in
progress, and absolutely nothing was
known regarding political develop
ments in European Russia.
The only explanation of tho renewal
of Russia's military activity there is
that it probably is a demonstration to
Impress Afghanistan. The Associated
Press Is unable here to obtain any of
ficial admission that any unusual mili
tary move is in progress, tho state
ment being made that, if guns were
going south it 'was simply an ordinary
operation In the way of shifting troops;
but a Russian of high position made the
following statement:
Britain Is Making Hay.
"Russia has not any designs on India,
as England is so fond of alleging. If
Great Britain would only let us alone,
we would not trouble her; but we are
not blind to the manner in which Great
Britain has seized the occasion of the
present war to buttress all her inter
ests in Central Asia, where we have
as vital Interests as she; nor can we
Russians get over the Idea that, sooner
or later, a conflict with our tradi
tional enemy is inevitable, and we real
ize that our only path to victory lies in
the direction of India. Without going
back to Lord Curzon's bombastic proc
lamations or anything prior to the war.
and out of consideration for the manner
in which she sought to embarrass and
discredit "us in Its prosecution, we re
call what Great Britain has done in
Asia since the outbreak of hostilities
and ask whether Russia would not be
justified in making a counter move to
YounghU6band'a expedition to Thibet,
which was In direct violation of Great
Britain's solemn assurance to us.
Younghusband, you will remember, ne
gotiated a treaty which so closely ap
proached a protectorate over Thibet
that the British government was
obliged to administer a public rebuke
to him.
'Then Iord Kitchener's scacme for
the reorganization of the Indian army
blossomed, and a so-called commercial
expedition was sent to Persia. The son
of the Ameer of Afghanistan was next
brought to Bombay. Then pressure was
put upon Turkey to settle the Aden
Hinterland question and now there is a
project to autonbmize Arabia. Great
Britain has been making hay while the
sun .-.hone. But Russia cannot hold her
hands and see Thibet and Afghanistan
converted into Bhutans or Nopals, nor
Persia placed completely under British
influence. I have no knowledge of
what. It any, steps have been taken in
Turkestan, but Great Britain will And
Russia is not so engrossed or helpless
as to be obliged to relinquish border
stales to her morcy without a struggle."

LIMIT TO IRISH AMBITION.
Rosebery Wants No Dual Govern
ment Like Austria-Hungary.
LONDON, March 9. The question of
home rule for Ireland was the principal
feature of the speech of Lord Rosebery
before the City of London Liberal Club
toaigat. His Lordship said that, while
the Liberal party sympathised with Ire
land .and .was -Billing to proceed along the
lines of reform, "there Is one thing to
which no wise statesman ever will ex
pose the country, namely, the curse of a
dual government We have JMJfficIent
warnings In the example of Norway and
"Sweden and Austria aad Hungary to
avoid the peril of having the -vulture
gnawing at bur very vitals
Lord Rosobery said that after British
ships had been ordered from Port Arthur
by Russia and sont to Venezuela at the
behest of Germany, Britons had little
further humiliation to expect at the hands
of a Liberal government. If a Liberal
government were called upon to renew
the Anglo-Japanese alliance, he had 'little
doubt that it would elga gladly.
BUBONIC PLAGUE IS RAGING
Epidemic Rages in India and Bur
mah, Causing Thousands to Die.
CALCUTTA. March 9. Deaths from,
plague last week numbered 34,000. Sta
tistics show that the deaths from bubonic
pleaguc In India within a few years
reached nearly 3,093,000. In 1208 the mor
tality in India from the plague alone was
S50.000. The number of deaths recorded
last week, while extraordinary. Is not
unprecedented..
The infection recently spread to Bur
mah, where It is making rapid strides.
This season of the year always favors
its spread. The Indian Government Is
making every effort to eradicate It, de
stroying by burning whole sections of
towns, and segregating the inhabitants.
But owing to the climate and the sanitary
description of the outlying districts and
native sections of the towns, It Is difficult
to cope with the epidemic, which breaks
out continually at fresh points.
The deaths are said to be SO per cent
of thoso Infected. As a result of the
plague the labor supply for the manufac
turing centers has sorlously depreciated.
So long has the plague existed In India
that the native population regards It cal
lously. Since the outbreak at Bombay In 1K35
that town has not beon free from the
plague, which has Tavaged tho entire
presidency and is gradually spreading
throughout India. The -victims are chief
ly natives.
WYNDHAM'S SUCCESSOR FOUND
Long Will Be Irish Secretary, but
Forster May Resign.
LONDON. Maroh 10. "Walter Hume
Long, president of the local Govern
ment Board, has accepted the office of
Chief Secretary for Ireland. It is ex
pected that Premier Balfour will for
mally announce tho appointment to
day. It is still possible, however, that a
hitch may occur, as It is stated that
"War Secretary Arnold Forster, who is
In bad health and dissatisfied with the
constant criticism of his work, has de
termined to resign, in which, case Mr.
Balfour may be obliged to have re
course to a reshuffling of the Cabinet
seats.
In the divisions taken in the House
of Commons yesterday the government
majorities were again dangerously
small, owing to the difficulty the whips
experienced In keeping government
members in attendance. With a view
to overcoming this trouble, the tariff
reformers have decided to dine to
gether on Mondays and Thursdays at
the House of Commons. It Is stated
that Mr. Balfour and Joseph Chamber
lain will both attend the first of these
dinners on Monday next.
CHAMPION SPENDTHRIFT DYING
Marquis of Anglesey's Doom Near at
Monte Carlo.
NEW YORK, March 9. The Marquis of

dispatch from Monte Carlo, dying there
