BUSINESS AT A STANDSTILL Foreign Merchants Close Stores In i ' Despair Government Cancels Army and Navy Contracts. 1 Territory for Indemnity. LONDON, July S. (Special.) Ad vlceH from various parttf of Russia show that the effects of the war are telling terribly upon that unhappy country, more so than they did when Manchuria was still the scene of ac tivity. Commercial reports by British merchants with large interests In the Czar's domain tell the heartbreaking story much more clearly than do the press dispatches, which throw the weight of Importance upon the political situation, while, as a matter of fact, the commercial pauperism of the coun try is fraught with more danger to its future than all the bloodshed in the streets of Russian and Polish cities. Without exception. British merchants are counseled by their Russian agents to waste no time in the effort at re generating the.lr branches in St. Peters burg and other Russian centers, as the custom hardly suffices to keep the na tive merchants alive. Great Distress in Moscow. Even In wealthy Moscow, "the mid dleman of the Empire." the number of business premises ""to let in the very heart of the financial district exceed xne worst expectations, in tne villages matters arc still worse. The Zemstvos are utterly unable to cope with the dis tress, and the local treasuries are at low ebb. Not only is the National treasury almost empty, but the people, high and low, are poverty-stricken, iind, when the cost is counted. Rupsia will be found to be as poor as her Balkan neighbors. Beyond the merest necessities. Rus sia will do nothing to replenish her National larder, which has been almost completely emptied by the war. It is known that nearly all of the orders placed some months ago for new war ships hae been either canceled or marked "held." and about the only ex pense of any magnitude the govern men has dared to incur is for small war material. Immense quantities of tills have been ordered in Germany. The firm of Ludwig Locwc, the well-known small arms manufacturers, has received orders for 200,000,000 cartridges for the Russian Infantry rifle, and the con clusion is obvious that these munitions are destined for the streets of Russian cities and not for the battlefield, where the rifle cartridge has become an al most negligible quantity. Taxes Raised Enormously. 'In almost all of the provincial dis tricts of Russia the local taxes have been raised to an enormous extent. The widows and orphans of soldiers killed at the front have become unbearable burdens upon the shoulders of the stay-at-homes. Failures of large firms are becoming of such common occurrence that they no longer escape comment. The guess is made here In financial and diplomatic circles that Russii, fail ing to satisfy Japan with land cessions in place of cash Indemnity, will en deavor to sell to some European nation some portion or other of her posses sions, which at the present time she Is unable to develop to advantage.

The excitement was increased later in the day when It became known that the mutineers had offered to surrender. The mutineers asked the Rouman ian authorities to guarantee that they would furnish the sailors who surrtn dered with Roumanian passports and also" guarantee that they shall not be extradited to Russia.

PRIXCE POTEMKIN'S CAREER Man Whose Name Is Borne by Rebel Battleship. The battleship Kniaz (Prince) Potem kln Is named after Prince Gregory Alex androvitch Potemkln. who was the great General and statesman of Catherine the Great, whose lover he Is reputed to have been. He was bom In the village of Domnovo. in the government of Smolensk in oeing the son of a poor noble man of Polish extraction, whose family had some time before settled In Russia. He first planned to become a priest, but found that calling not to his taste and became a soldier. He aided Cather ine in her conspiracy against her hus band in 1762 and gained her notice by offering her the plume from his hat. He soon became a favorite and rose rapidly. He served against the Turks, but sooti returned to St. Petersburg, where he secured control of the foreign policy In 1778. He secured the annexation of the Crimea in. 17R3 and in 1787 accompanied Catherine to that province. He was com-mander-In-cnlef of an army of 150.000 men in the war against Turkey in 1787 90, but Sonnaroff was the real General and won the victories of Bender and Ismail.

Immense wealth and thousands of serfs and one of his whims was to have several bound volumes of banknotes in his library. He was arrogant and capricious and a man of grossly licentious life, his excesses being the cause of his early death. MITCHELL ONLY THE FIRST Secretary Hitchcock Says That Many More Will Follow.

Dear Sir Our attention has been called to the inclosed article which appeared in the Evening Journal on July 5th, and which affects our company to the extent that we will have to discontinue our gift proposition. These gifts are given away purely as an advertisement, and we feel that the law was not intended to interfere in a straight, honest, legitimate business enterprise. The merchant of today cannot exist who docs not advertise. Our interpretation of the law is, the intent conveyed, either of an honest or criminal character. The United States postal authorities certainly would not object to the Oregon Importing Company, or any other legitimate firm giving to some family, such a present as we are now offering, consisting as it does, of a very handsome Weathered Oak Buffet. Extension Dining Table, six Spanish Leather Chairs and a set of China (111 pieces), all of which we assure you will be most acceptable to any family, rich or poor. We have no other way of giving this handsome present except to give a coupon with each 50-cent purchase. Not being conversant with the exact interpretation of the law on the subject we would be verymuch pleased to have you advise us whether we can advertise through the newspapers, merely along the lines that we will on Saturday. September 2d, at 0:00 P. M., give away these things to some one who will buy goods of us, as per in closed ticket, could we so word an advertisement?

Dear Sirs Replying to yours of the 7th instant, I beg to state that the newspaper clipping from the "'Journal' of the 5th' inst. contains a correct statement of the law as I understand it upon the subject of advertising or gift enterprises of any Kind or character in which it is proposed that a person, by reason of having made an investment may secure a prize as a result of chance. The law is drawn on very broad lines by Congress and was evidently intended to prohibit everything savoring, of a lottery in the slightest degree. I agree with you that there is no.nioraj obli quity or evil intent in the scheme which you have under way, but where one scheme is honest a thousand may be inaugurated that are dishonest, and the honest one must be controlled by the same priciple of law as the dishonest ones, because it is impossible to make laws so as to fit individual cases. Of course I had nothing to do with the 'making of the law, and must enforce it as I find it. Regretting that I cannot approve of your plan, I am, Yours verv respectfullv, t . 1 (Signed) FRA-NCTSJ.
