Roosevelt Sends Messages to
Russia and Japan.
O ffe rs to Help in the Preliminary Ar.
„_rangements if Warned by the
Warring Nations.
f" Washington, June 10.— An identical
mote, the text of which, by authority of
<he president, was made public late to­
night at thr W hite house by Secretary
!Loeb, has been forwarded to the gov-
•erninents of Russia and Japan by Presi­
dent Itoosevelt. In the interest of hu­
manity, the president urges the warring
nations to conclude peace. It is sug­
gested by the president that the nego­
tiations for peace lie conducted “ direct­
ly and exclusively” between the bellig­
erent nations. The note indiiates the
president’s belief that an intermediary
may not be necessary to effect conclu­
sive negotiations, but likewise expresses
the president’s wilingness to do all that
he properly may do to promote the
preliminary arrangements for a time
and place for the meeting of represent­
atives of the Russian and Japanese gov­
ernments. A formal reply to the note
may not be received for several days,
but, as already made clear, informal
assurances that it would be welcomed
are already at hand. In view of the
significant character of the document
and of the attitude toward it which
both Russia and Japan have assumed,
it is regarded in official and diplomatic
circles as the first firm and decisive
step toward ultimate peace. A t a late
hour tonight Mr. Tapkahira, Japanese
minister, had not been advised from
Tokio of the delivery of the president’s
message to the emperor, but he was ex­
pecting a cable dispatch to that effect
at any moment. The minister was able
yesterday to transmit to the president
a message from the mikado that Japan
was, with Russia, desirous of peace, pro­
vide«! it could be obtained uniler proper
Aware of the preference of Japan to
communicate her peace terms to Rus­
sia directly, the president ,in the last
few days has been active in counseling
moderation to Japan rather than in
endeavoring to draw from Tokio some
statement of probable terms.

Moody Holds It Applies to Laborers
and Mechanic*.
Washington, June 10.— The opinion
of Attorney General Moo«l> regarding
the application of the eight-hour law
on the Isthmus of Panama was made
public today. He holds that the act of
August 1, 1892, which limits and re­
stricts to eight hours the daily service
o f laborers and mechanics employed by
the government of the Unite«! States or
by any contract*» or subcontractor
upon the public works of the United
States, applies to the employment of
laborers and mechanics in the con­
struction of the Panama canal.
That act, however, the attorney gen­
eral holds, does not apply to the office

sion staiione«! on the Isthmus, or to
any of the employes of the government
who are hot within the ordinary mean­

Also that the scope of the act is
not limited by the territorial jurisdic­
tion of congress.
In answer to the request of the secre­
tary of war for an opinion on the ad­
ditional question of whether the pro­
visions cf the act mentione«! apply to
the hours of labor of “ mechanics and
laborers” employed in the construc­
tion, maintenance and operation of the
Panama railroad and steamship line,

Government will Now Open Forest
Reserves to Loggers.
Washington, June it.— Following out
its declared intention of developing
forest reserves by use, the bureau of
Forestry aur.om.-es, by special bulletin,
that mature timber in all forest re*
serves is to be offered for sale. The
restriction formerly laid upon the ex*
port of timber from the stales in which
the forest reserves were located has
been removed, and the law n o« placée
no limitation on the shipment oi tim­
ber grown on any forest reserve, except
those in the state of Idaho and the
Black H ills reserve, in South Dakota.
The effect of this change in the law,
and the declared policy of the depart­
ment of Agriculture, is that the timber
on the reserves may now be cut and
disposed of to the highest bidder. On
many of the reserves there are great
quantities of mature timber, and on
surne of them the facilities tor getting
it out at a reasonable cost are excellent.
Tue forest service, which has charge of
the administration of the reserves, is
a ixious to begin the cutting of this
m iture timbei as soon as possible, and
it is prepared to consider offers from
lumbermen who wish to undertake
such operations.
It is perhaps well to call attention to
the tact that this announcement does
not mean that the forest reserves aie
going to be devastated umler authority
of the government.
On the contrary,
t; e distinct and definite purpose of the
forest service is to impro. e the re­
serves by utilizing the material that
is now fit for lumber. In doing so, it
will also provide for the reproduction
of the forest and the restocking of
those areas upon which forest condi­
tions are defective. Work of this kind
has been successfully carried on for
some years in the Black H ills forest
reserve, and has been begun with the
greatest promise of success on the lands
of the Chippewa Indians, in Northern
Minnesota, from which it is proposed
to create another National reserve.
The public in general, and lumber­
men in particular, w ill be interested
to know that in this last case the re­
strictions impose«! by the forester have

Convention o f Baptists Refuses to En­
dorse Rockefeller.
North Bend, Ind., June 9. — “ Re­
solved, that we express ourselvs against
the present tendency to criticise the
great Baptist brotherhood in the person
of one of its most active members, and
this in the face of the fact that there is
no evidence to prove Mr. Rockefeller
is or ever has been either directly or
indirectly connected with coniluct that
is out of line with the highest moral­
ity .”
This resolution cause«! a storm of
protests today at the convention of the
Northern Iniliana Baptists’ association.
It was voted down after vigorous com­
ment, both in defense of it and in op­
position to it.
The defense of John D. Rockefeller
was drawn by Rev. Mr. Wheeler, of
Elkhart, who intr«xluced it and made a
speech in defense of it. Rev. Mr. Lan­
kin, of Mishawaka, also defended it.
The protests were started by Rev. C.
R. Parker, of Laporte, who, among
other things, sait):
“ Rotten things should be dealt with
in the most rigid way.”

of Norway accept today’s action of the

It is not anticipated that King Oscar
w ill consent to any prince of the house
of Bernadotte accepting the Norwegian
crown. Should the king refuse, there
is a possibility that the throne may be
offered to Prince Waldemar, the third
son of King Christian, of Denmark.
The people of Denmark largely sympa­
thize with the Norwegian demands.
The consular bill, while apparently
of little importance, was designed to
open the whole question of foreign
affairs, which Norway desires to man­
age independently of Sweden.
One of the causes of the desire in
Sweden and Norway for separate <x>n-
sular systems was the fact that Sweden
is for protection and Norway is for free
trade, and also because of Norway’s
more extensive sea trade and other di­
vergencies of commercial interests.
Russia Has Asked What the Japanese
Government Wants.
Washington, June 8. — Preliminary
peace negotiations between Russia and
Japan are generally believed to be un­
der way, and it is conceded that Presi­
dent Roosevelt w ill in all probability
act, not as a mediator, but as “ the
friendly channel of communication.”
There is as yet no official admission
that Russia has ac«-epted what Count
Cassini in his cablegram to Count
Lamsdorff last week described as “ the
offer of good w ill of the president,” al­
though instructions to the ambassador
are believed to have reached here to­
night in a long cablegram which was re-
ceivetl at the Russian embassy quite
late and was laid lefore the ambassador
just before he retired.
Immetliately after his return from a
long conference with the president, Mr
Takahira, the Japanese minister, liegan
the preparation of a dispatch to his
government, upon which he was occu­
pied until quite late.

time since the annihilation of the Rus­
sian fleet the minister did not feel at
