Powell, - recently " appointed United
States marshal la Alaska Is confronted
at ther very outset of his tenure of the
tofflcs with serious charges which, may
cans his removal. The charges relate
In part to election frauda in. Portland
with which Powell's . name has been
eonnected and cltlsens of Portland who
have --been opposed t PowelVln politics
are - said to have submitted evidence
which seriously reflects upon him. , .
'Powell was appointed United Stat

The election frauds alluded to in the
foregoing dispatch are" probably 'those
attempted by the t local ; Republican or
ganlsatlonat the county election in June,
1904, when hundreds of fraudulent affida
vits -were prepared for the purpose of
voting unregistered voters. - T. Cader
Powell was Implicated in these frauds
and his signature was attached . to
larwnumber of the false affidavits.
The frauda were . exposed by The
Journal on the day of the election, June
0,-1904. and complete details were pub-
liahed a few daya later, with the names
of those implicated. Among the signers
of the fraudulent affidavits were a score
of men who are actively identified with
the local Republican machine, including
aeveral city and county officials and nonv
lneea on the last county ticket The at
testing notaries are men well known In
this city and one of them was a member
of the laat legislature.- 'V- - ;
No reply to The Journal s charges
was ever made by any of the accused
men.- Such violation of the election laws
hS . punishable by imprisonment in the
penitentiary, yet no effort was ever made
to refute the accuaatlons. --
The facts are. briefly as Tollowa: Un

It Is now known, that the first direct

terms proposed by. Japan are aa follows:
The evacuation of Manchuria by Russia,
the return of ths province to the control
of China, and Its recognition as an in
tegral part of the Chlneae empire.' Rec
ognition by Russia of Japan's suprem
acy In Korea, transfer of the Chinese
eastern railway to the management of
an International commission, and the re
tention of PortArthur by Japan.
These terms were, communicated to
President" Roosevelt by the Japanese
minister at Washington who explained
that the government waa willing to treat
for peace upon their acceptance by Rus

Nothing Is said about indemnity. It Is
