Portsmouth Aug. 20. As was indi
cated in the dispatches last night there
was no rupture In the peac negotia
tions today. Peace Is by no means as
sured, but an important crisis has been
tided over, and the fact that the life
of the conference ha been prolonged into
nest week adds materially to the chances
of a favorable issue.
According to the Russisn version, it
was Japan and not Russia which weak
ened. Witte publicly announced after
the sitting that it was Baron Komura
who asked for an adjournment until
Monday in order to have time to sub
mit a new proposition.
Yet it is known Witte received in
structions, sent after the president's in
tercession at Peterhof, through Ambas
sador Meyer, to agree to a division of
Sakhalein and permit a liberal compen
sation for the care of the Russian pris
oners of war and the cessation of the
Chinese Eaxtctn railway, but to continue
absolutely to refuse to pay war tribute
under any guise.
This is described a Russia's "ultima
tum,' leaving over the old question of
money as a stumbling block to an agree
ment. Xo adequate account of the pro-
ceding of today'a meeting are forth-

Sevile,,- Aug. 20. Heartrending re
ports still continue to rest-h the pro
vincial authorities from the outlying
famine-stricken district. The latest re

At Ecija, the population looted the

Cardinal Sancha, after having ex-
haunted all available charitable funds, is
going from house to house in Sevile beg

of their wages toward the relief of the

Paris, Aug. 26. Owing to reports from
Portsmouth indicting that the question
of peace between Russia and Japan
hinges solely on Russia paying an in
demnity to Japan, the Matin cabled to
night a remarkable appeal to John D.
Rockefeller at Cleveland. The appeal, in
part, is as follows:
"The question of money threatens
again to unloosen the scourge of war.
President Roosevelt is making noble
and heroic efforts to end the struggle
between the two nations. The question
arises as to whether another American
would 'not share the glory of Roosevelt
and complete his work by overcoming ths
sole obstacle now hindering peace. lie
would thus demonstrate the might of
money in powerful and generous
hands. The Matin, in constituting itself
spokesman Jot this sentiment, addresses
'the richest citizen in the world.'"
