Portsmouth, Aug. 16. — Although
very rapid progress was made with the
peace negotiations yesterday, three of
the 12 articles which constitute the
Japanese conditions of peace having
been agreed to by Mr. Witte and Baron
Rosen on behalf ol Russia, neither of
the two articles to which Mr. Witte in
bis reply returned an absolute negative
was reached. The crisis, therefore, is
still to come. It may be reached to
day, as the cession of Sakhalin comes
fifth in the list.
The three “ articles
found,” as they are officially designat
ed in the brief communications author
ized to be given to the press, which
were disposed of yesterday, are in sub
stance as follows:
First— Russia’s recognition of Ja
pan’ s “ preponderating influence” and
special position in Corea, which Russia
henceforth agrees is ontBide of her
sphere of influence, Japan binding her
self to recognize the suzerainty of tht
reigning family, but with the right to
give advice and assistnace to improve
the civil administration of the empire.
Second— Mutual obligation to evacu
ate Manchuria, each to surrender all
special privileges in that province, mu
tual obligation to respect the “ territo
rial integrity” of China and to main-
tain the principle of equal rights of j[all
nations to that piovince (the open
Third— The cession to China of the
Chinese Eastern railway from Harbin
There was never any question about
the acceptance on the part of Mr. Witte
of these articles, the first two covering
in more emphatic form the contention
of Japan in the diplomatic struggle
which preceded hostilities.

Chrisitana, Norway, Aug. 15. — The
Norwegian people, in a referendum
vote, have pronounced in favor of the
dissolution of the anion with Sweden

The difference between the
total number of voters and the number
of votes cast is attributable to abeent-
