NORWAY FEARS MUI
Crisis at Hand in Negotiations
TROOPS SENT TO FRONTIER
Compromise May Be Reached on
Demolition or Forts and Arbi
tration Conference at
Karlstad t Renewed.
LONTKDN. Sept. 13. Dispatches from
Chlstlanla. represent the situation between
Norway and Sweden as serious on account
of the determined attitude of the Swedish
commissioners. Dispatches from Stock
holm, however, are less pessimistic, and
express the hope that a modus vivendl
will be arranged. Apparently, nothinp
definite will be known until today's con
ference at Karlstad.
Much interest has been aroused by the
presence In London during the last few
days of Frlthjof Nansen, the Arctic ex
plorer, who, in February last, was con
sidered to be a likely candidate for the
Premiership of oNrway, and who, since
the dissolution of the -union, has been
spoken of as the first Minister of Norway
t Great Britain.
According to a dispatch to the Daily
Telegram from Gothenburg. Sweden, it Is
believed that Norway will accept the
Swedish terms and that Sweden will agree
to an arbitration treaty.
The correspondent of the Times at
Karlstad says he believes there Is a dis
position on both sides to yield on the
questions of the demolition of the fortlfl
twtions and an arbitration treaty. Sweden,
he says, does not want the historical fort
resses demolished, and. If Norway Is will
ing to demolish the modern forts, Sweden
w.ll'be ready to conclude an arbitration
treaty for the settlement of all future
differences, but not those affecting the
questions now under discussion.
Baron von Bildt. the Minister of Sweden
and Norway to Great Britain, writes to
the Times in confirmation of the state
ment that Sweden asks only for the demo
lition of the modern forts.
ARE TROOPS CALLED TO ARMS?
Swedish Papers Says So, but Norway
STOCKHOLM, Sweden. Sept. 13. The
Dagblad today printed a private tele
Kram from Chrlstlanla saying that the
second of the sixth-year class of the Nor
wegian conscription have been mobilized.
CHRISTIANIA, Sept. 13. A semi-official
denial s given tonight to the statement
printed In the Da'gblad of ' Stockholm to
day that the second to the sixth year
clasuos of the Norwegian conscrlptionlsts
have been mobilized. It Is said that only
a few guards of the Norwegian army near
the frontier have been called to arms.
A dispatch from Karlstad to the After
powsn says that a feeling of depression
prevails as to the outcome of the negotia
tions, and that the attitude of the Swedish
commissioners regarding the fortifications
has grown stronger. The dispatch -says it
is hoped, however, that a modus vivendl
will be reached after the signing' of a
treaty of arbitration.
"WILL LET OLD FORTS STAND
Sweden Docs Not Aim to Destroy
STOCKHOLM. SepL 13. An authorita
tive statement referring to the erroneous
reports circulated abroad is published
this morning, in which it is declared that

fortifications erected during the past ton
years, which were believed to be Intend
ed as a menace to Sweden.

STVEDEN'S DESIGNS PACIFIC
Explains Objection to Signing Arbi
tration Treaty as Yet.
STOCKHOLM. Sept. 13. Political cir
cles disavow any desire on the part of
Sweden to oppose the arbitration treaty
demanded by Norway, but they point out
that only the preliminary negotiations in
regard to the form a1d contents of such
a treaty can be discussed at present, as
the conclusion of a treaty Is Impossible
until Norway has accepted Sweden's con
ditions and the latter has recognized Nor
way as an Independent sovereign state.

long lines back to their old homes. -
The Chinese greet the Russian soldiers
with one word, "peace." which Is repeated
over and over again.
Many of their homes have been devas
tated, but notwithstanding that they ex
press their Joy at getting back Into peace

more, the game of neutrality to each side,
which the Chinese have been obliged
to play for so many months, has been a
hard one, and peace has brought relief
from this strain. It -Is no exaggeration

piest people In Manchuria.
It Is reported here that the Japanese
have disbanded the Chinese bandit or
ganizations with which they operated
during the war.

DECISION B3T THE WASHINGTON
Company, Advice and Comfort Are
of More Value Than That
OLYMFIA, Wash.. SepL 13. (Special.)
The Supreme Court of this state declares
that the company, advice and comfort of
a mother are of more value In the proper
bringing up of a child than that of the
father. Where all other things are equal,
this facL says the court, should be a
potent reason for awarding the custody
of children to the mother, in the event of
separation of the parents.
The decision was given today In the case
of Ida Kane (formerly Miller), appellant,
vs. G. N. Miller, respondenL The Millers
were divorced In Walla Walla County In
1SC0. Two sons were given into the cus
tody of the mother until they became 10
years of age. and were then to be trans
ferred to the father's: custody. In the
meantime both parents remarried.
When the boys reached the age of 10
the mother did not want to give them up,
and applied for a modification of the
court's order. The order was modified so
that the mother was to havo them until
February 1. 1906. and they were then to
be returned to the father pending the fur
ther order of the courL The mother ap
pealed. The Supreme Court finds from the rec
ord that cither parent was a proper per
son to have the custody of the children,
and was amply able to provide for them.
For the reason above given, and because
the boys preferred to live with the moth
er the case Is reversed and the children
given to the mother.
