President Roosevelt's latent ap-

Oyster Hay, Aug. 23. The two em
ieror, one at St. Petersburg and the
other at Tokio are the determining fac
tor in the pending peace negotiation.
Although the negotiation are upcnded
temporarily at Portsmouth, they are pro
ceeding actively through President
Roosevelt at Sagamore Hill. He is in
constant communication with the St.
Petersburg and Tokio governments.
Kiirly in the day the president had an
extended conference with Huron Kaneko.
While the baron' expressed views on the
peace negotiation are not optimistic, be
left a distinct lmpresoion that the last
word hud by no mean la-en spoken. A
disclaimer of the Russian ofllce of the

. Hope for Peace,
St. Petersburg, Aug. 25. According to
information from -a memlx-r of the im
H?rial family, the Associated Press learns
that a dispatch wa sent to M. Witte
which la considered at PeterhorT a be
ing a decided boM5 for peace. The
Slove' correspondent reported the ar
rival of "nu eagerly expected dispatch,"
and quotes M. Witte as saying that the
endeavor to influence St. Petersburg was
more successful than had been expected.
Portsmouth, Aug. 23. The peace con
ference tonight seems headed straight for
the rocks, Despite the fact that every
question Involved in the quarrel between
the two countries has been settled in
favor of the victor and that apparently
only "words and money" still seporate
them, the negotiations seem on the
verge of a final rupture. The air is filled
tonight with gloomy forebodings as
superficially everything indicated that
tomorrow's session of the conference will
prove "seance d adieu." .
In the most positive fashion it is de
clared that no instructions have reached
Witte up to 7 o'clock this evening, which
would permit him to entertain the com
promise proposals submitted by Komura
and therefore unless Japan has a new
proposal to ' make tomorrow all tiiat

shake band and part. But there are
still unknown rumor in the situation
which mix lit change the situation. The
reult of President Roosevelt's second
appeal dim-to to the ear has not tran
spired and the result of the pressure on
Japan to alter the form of her proposal
by the elimination of the purchase of a
portion of the northern half of Sakha
lein Is not known.
Probably more than fci00,0ii0,000 stands
in the way, yet the Japanese cling dog
gedly to their -demands. Their people
at home insist upon it. Should author
ity come at the lltli hour, Witte might
make the lest terms be could and then
figuratively throw the treaty at the em
peror's feet to take or leave, yes or no.
A a politician, Witte might not relish
the idea of having it said when be re
turned to Russia that be had made a
"bad peace." He might prefer to leave
the emperor to shoulder tliat respon
sibility. Hut shortly before midnight
Witte gave absolutely no encouragement
to the idea that there would be change
of heart in St. Petersburg. Unless
Tokio was ready to recede further, he
expresed the opinion that all was over.
Information reeled at a late hour
indicates that President Roosevelt's ef
forts are not exhausted, that he is still
in communication with Tokio and St.
Petersburg. At midnight no message
had been received by Witte from the
president and it was regarded practically
certain that an adjournment would be
taken tomorrow until Monday.
Pari, Aug. 25. The peace conference
is commanding an increased interest, the
newspaper are displaying pessimistic
views coupled with a tinge of hope that
President Roosevelt's role as the cham
pion of peace may save the day. Sjiecial
dispatches from St. Petersburg furnish
dark comments and are iu harmony with
the disiaU'bes from Portsmouth to the
French newspapers, among which is one
giving an interview with M. Witte. The
Russian envoy is quoted a saying:
"There ha been no change in the sit
uation since yesterday. President Roose
velt is in direct communication with the
emperor at Peterhoff. I have not received
fresh instructions and believe that an
other adjournment i probable."

Tillamook Capitalists Is
Mixed Up in Land
Federal Grand Jury Returns Iindictment
Against Claude F. Thayer, of Tilla
mook, in Connection With the Oregon
Land Frauds in Nehalem Valley.
Portland, Aug. 25. Claude F. Thayer,
tlie Tillamook capitalist, and several
others were indicted by the federal grand
jury today in connection with the Ore
gon land fraud. The case involves much
valuable timber land in the famous Ne
halem valley.
The significance of the action of tlie
grand jury today is emphasized by the
fact that it remained within but sii
hours of the time until the mater would
be outlawed. In September, 18!9, about
100 persons made tilings to enter timber
lands in the Nehalem valley. It is al
leged that Mr. Thayer engineered a
scheme by which the entry men were fur
nished money with which to make pay
ments for lands and that when Thayer
and his associates secured the bind the
net profits were to be divided. The cases
involve more money value in timber than
all the cases tried so far.
