Puts Off Discussion
AGREES OH TWO ARTICLES
Door and Cession of
Russian Leases Settled.
HOPE FOR COMPROMISE
Close of Week May See Deadlock on
Crucial Points Russia Will Re
sist Giving Up Rail
road to China.
PORTSMOUTH. N. H., Aug. 15. The
crista in the peace negotiations upon
which the eyes of the world are fas
tened Is approaching rapidly and the
end of this week or the nrst of next,
at the latest, should witness the dead
lock and the end, If the conference Is to
go to pieces. Two more of the 12 arti
cles, Hob. 4 and 6, were disposed of to
day. Article 4 consists of mutual
pledges to observe the Integrity of
China and the policy of the "open door"
for the commerce of all nations, and
article 6 covers the surrender of the
Russian leases of the Llao Tung Penln
Eula, Port Arthur, Dalny and the Blond
and Elliott Islands. v"-
To article 4 both parties gave ready
assent and the official statement of the
adoption of that article took care to
state tnat It was agreed to "unanimous
ly." Article B, the consideration of
which aws passed until later, provides
for the cession of the Island of .Sak
halln. Discussion appearing JUBt at
this stage .on account of the firm nega
tive given in the Russian reply, it was
decided upon the motion of the Japan
ese to defer its discussion, thus reveal
ing the Japanese intention' of postpon
ing to the end the life and death
Leave Trump Cards Till Lust.
Tnls is the UBual procedure followed
in diplomatic negotiations, enabling tho
negotiators to come to an accord upon
all possible points before tackling the
crucial Issues, and the fact that the
Russians acquiesced in the proposition
shows that they too are as careful and
as anxious as are the Japanese that the
world should not accuse them of being
responsible for precipitating the
break. If break there Is to be, and
wrecking the conference. This in itself
Is a hopeful sign. Besides by postpon
ing the main questions to the ond the
psychological moment for bargain and
compromise arrives. Then hurriedly the
last trump cards are played and the
game la done.
And there is growing hope of com
promise. To the closest observers tho
nnal solution begins to crystallize
quite naturally the Russians yielding
the cession of Sakhalin, Japan forego
ing "the cost of the war" but taking
compensation in the money to be re
funded to Japan by China on account
of the transfer to her of the Chinese
Eastern Railroad, which Russia con
tends belongs to a private corporation
and therefore Is unconfiscable by Jap
an, and the Russian government prop
erty in Port Arthur and Dalny and re
muneration for the maintenance of tho
100,000 Russian prisoners in Japan.
According to the Russian view, Japan
has already secured all and moro than
she dreamed of claiming before the
war To insist upon a foe, who has still
E00.0D0 men confronting her in th..
Held, footing tho hill for the cost of
war, as the price of peace would, the
Russians say, change the character of
the military struggle henceforth from
one for principle to one for the exac
tion of "blood money."
Questions So Far Settled.
All questions relating to Corea and
Manchuria, except the cession of the
Chinese Eastern Railroad, the main
Siberian line running through North
ern Manchuria from the station "Man
cnuria on tne Amur via Harbin to
Vladivostok, are settled in the five arti
cles. Some confusion has arisen about
those articles and the following resume
may- be Accepted as absolutely accurate
"First Recognition of Japan's prepon
derating Influence In Corea, etc.
"Second Mutual obligation to evacuate
Manchuria, Russia to retrocede to China
all special privileges, etc.
"Third Japanese obligation to restore
the sovereignty and administration of
China m Manchuria.
"Fourth Mutual obligations to respect
the territorial and administrative integ
rity of China and the principle of the
Fifth The surrender of the Russian
leases to the Llao Tung Peninsula, In
cluding Port Arthur, Dalny and the Blond
and Elliott Islands."
Articles Not Agreed Upon.
The remaining seven articles, (not given
in numerical order) are:
"Tho cession of Sakhalin; reimburse
ment for the cost of the war; the cession
to China of the Chinese Eastern Railway,
the article relating to that portion of the
main line of the Siberian Railroad through
Northern Manchuria, which Includes pro
vision for policing of the road by China
and not by Russia; fishing rights on the
Siberian coast north of Vladivostok to
Bering Sea; the article affecting Russia's
naval power in the Far East; and that
providing for the surrender of the Russian
warships interned In Far Eastern waters.

Besides indemnity and Sakhalin, Mr.
Wltte will strenuously oppose the sur
render of thelntemod warships, the limi

cession of the Chinese Eastern Railroad to
Struggle on Railroad Question.
The article relating to the Chinese East
ern Railroad is No. 1 and comes up at the
session tomorrow. The Russians are pre
pared with documentary evidence, if the
article Is not passed over, to show that
tho railroad Is a private corporation
owned- by the Russo-Chlnese Bank. Mr.
Pokotlloff, one of the Russian delegates,
was manager of the bank at St, Peters
burg until a few months ago, when he
was sent to Pekln as Minister, upon the
death of Mr. Leser. Mr. Berger, the
attorney for the bank, is also here, and
the fight on this article is sure to prove
extremely interesting and possibly pro
longed, as Russia will contest the Jap-,
anoso contention that the Russian gov
ernment is the real owner of the railroad
and that it was built for purely strategic
The only Jar in the sessions today, oc
curred at the morning session, wbn a
rather spirited controversy occurred over
the question of the publicity of the pro
ceedings. Each side manifested a dispo
sition to charge the other with being re
sponsible for the "leaks," and It was set
tled by renewed pledges to observe-.the
strictest secrecy henceforth regarding the
proceedings. As a result the correspond
ents experienced difficulty in obtaining In
formation. Both Firm About Sakhalin.
The discussion on Sakhalin went .far
enough to demonstrate the determined op
position of Russia to Its cession, and
there had been not the slightest sign
of yielding when the agreement was
reached to reserve a decision on the acrt
cle until later. Competent Japanese au
thorities, however, still Inlsst that Japan
will never abandon this point. They de
clare, however.! that Baron Komura and
Mr." Takahlra will go lo the extreme limit
to secure the basis of the "treaty of
Washington." They do not pretend to
say that they are assured the treaty will
be signed. They do not even say tonight
that they are hopefuL Their position may
thus be unofflclalljystated:
"Japan's plenipotentiaries will continue
the negotiations as far as possible with
out yielding on those points which Japan
has long ago decided are essential de
mands. If, after this earnest effort. It is
impossible to reach an agreement with
Mr. Wltte and Baron Rosen. Japan will
announce that further negotiations are
useless, and her envoys will regretfully
takdleave, and Japan wilj turn her at
tention to the campaign in Manchuria.
It has been made plain by Japan that
both sides can conduct the nagotlatiaan
with a freer hand and make concessions
on certain points with less danirar of
embarrassment by public opinion at home
if the negotiations are kent secret."
No More Talk of Armistice.
The President has not only ceased all
efforts in tho direction of an armistice,
but it is the feeling among the officials
of the Washington government that per
haps, in case the basis of the negotia
tions is agreed upon, the actual drafting
of the treaty may be hastened if there
is no truce. Japan long ago let It be
knownjhat she would not consent to an
armistice until the success of the nego

will consent to a truce even then, unloss

CHOICE OF 0E1N
Appointment of Federal Judge
Likely to Be Made by
BEAN BEST EQUIPPED MAN
Attorney-General's Selection of Su
preme Judge for Position An
nounced Picked From
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Aug. -15. If the recommendation
of Attorney-General Moody is adhered to
by President Roosevelt, Judge R. S. Bean,
of Salom, now on the Oregon Supreme
bench, will be appointed federal Judge for
the district of Oregon to succeed Judge
Cotton, resigned. It Is not certain that
the President will abide by the Attorney-General's
opinion in this matter, but
It is reasonably certain that he will, "and,
if all signs hold good. Judge Bean's ap
pointment will be announced from Oyster
The Attorney-General has been some
time arriving at a seleotlon of a suitable
Judge for Oregon. He has been confront
ed with a great array of applications and
Indorsements and has given careful con
sideration to each man's merits, as he
has been desirous from the first of se
lecting the best available man among the
candidates. Because this is a life po
sition and because the federal Judge for
Oregon is thrown largely upon his own
resources at all times, it was deemed
most essential that a man of proper ju
dicial temperament should be chosen.
There were sevoral such on tho list and
there wore others more proficient as prac
ticing lawyers than they would be as
Judges. The latter were discarded.
though without reflection upon tbem In
Politics Cut Small Figure.
Politics may have entered Into the se
lection of Judge Bean; it was not a con
trolling or an Important factor, however.
Judge Bean was chosen from among the
many, because it was believed he is bat
ter equipped than any other roan in the
race to fill this particular position.
Mr. Moody's recommendation was sent
to Oyster Bay last FtJday -w Saturday.
Since then no word has been received
from the President to indicate what he
will do, but unless he is in possossfon of
facts not laid before the Attorney-Gon
oral. C Is almost certain he will concur
In the latter's selection.
All Papers Given President.
In transmitting the recommondatlon to
the President, the Attorney-Gonoral also
sent to Oyster Bay all Important papers
relating to the, various candidates, so that
tne President might be fully advised of
every feature of the nituation before
making the appointment. This was done
out of abundance of precaution, for the
President has been as anxious as the At
torney-Genoral to secure the best avail
able man for Judge, and ho naturally
would care to go through all the papers
before affixing his signature to the com
mission of any man.
