that has been going on recently, merely
for the hides and horns.

KING EDWARD'S ACTION WHILE ALLY IS ENGAGED
IN WAR IS CONSIDERED MOST
London, April 9 The Associated Press learus
that the exact st.rtus of the much-forecasted Auglo
Russiau uuderstaudiug is as follows:
After King Edwaid had giveu his personal assur
ances to Emperor Nicholas that the anti-Russian com
ments in the British press did not represent the feel
ing of his government, Foreign Seoretary Lansdovvue
informed the Russian Ambassador, Count Benken
dorff, that he would be glad to reopen the negotiations
looking to'a settlement of all matters now in dispute
between Russia and Great Britain. Lord La'-tniowne
did not stipulate a basis or enter into any details.
Ambassador BenkcudorfT expressed his pleasure
at the offer and transmitted it to S. Petersburg.
Lord Lmsdowue's action is understood o have been
taken as a material expression of King Edward's per
sonal messages There for the moment the mntter
stands. Negotiations beyond Lord Lunsdowuc's offer
have not been commenced aud are not likely to a -sumc
any definite phase in the nc -r futute.
The Associated Press learns that Russia and
Great Britain secretly negotiated to the same end 18
months ago, but the attempt to diaw up au agi cement
came to an abrupt end when Lord Lausdowne an
nounced in the House of Lords that "unde: no consid
eration would Russia be allowed n port on the Persian
Gulf." Since then that question has been regarded
as a deadlock. Under the changed conditions and
with the good, oflices of the French government" se
cured through the recent agrcemeut, Lord Lan do-.vuo
is said to entertain the hope of au eventual settlement
by which the Anglo Russian spiivics of iafiueucc
throughout the world may be delci mined aud the
ceaseless aud costly rival ry between the two nations
On all sides it is pointed out that an agreement
on outstanding matters with Russia is far more diffi
cult than the recent arrangement with France. The
paramount questions are the delimitation of the
Afghan frontier, access to the Persian Gulf aud the
spheres of influence in Persia.
It is thought that Russia's request for a part of
the Persian Gulf will never be granted, but the As
sociated Press learns that lately Russia has exhibited
a keen desire to acquire interests in Abyssinia so as
to gaiu access to the Red Sea. This might be -arranged
in lieu of a. port on the Persian Gulf.
