Albany, K. Y Oct. 7. The statu
department of labor, in Its quarterly
bulletin, attributes the diminution in
an unprecedented degiee of employ
ment and wRa reported In Juno as al
most wholly to labor disputes.
!'The lockout In the building trades

era out of work." In general the bul
letin holds that, exclusive of the build
lnjt trades, Now York lndustf les were
generally as active as In the summer of
1902, which was a banner year.
According to tlft bulletin, immigra
tion this summer baa exceeded even the
record-breaking current of lastyeai,
and Indicates the eagerness of the low
paid laborers of central and eouthraat
era Europe to enjoy the prosperity
which, on the whole, still reigns In
the Unltod States.
The largest continents aro still the
Italians, Polea and other races of south
ern and ccatral Europe, with a low
standard of education. Notwithstand
ing the great tide of immigration, the
superintendent of the State rice Em
ployment Bureau In New Yoik City
states that at no time during the qusr-
tor wa he able to meet the demands for
domestic help.
"Prosperity is so widely diffused,"
raya the bulletin, "that the eervant
keeping class ia larger than ever before,
and has thus created a demand that ox
ceeds the supply."

It Is further learned that these ne
gotiations, looking to a final settle
ment of the Ruato-Japanoce spheres of
influence in the far East and eseclally
dealing vittl the situation In Corea,
are progressing satisfactorily at Tokio.
So treaty, nowover, has yet been
signed and it ia unlikely that the nego
tiations will be concluded by October 8,
the date on which .Russia was to evac
uate Manchuria. Russia's failure to
evacuate Maachuria on that day, how
ever, will not precipitate a diplomatic

the negotiations covering broadly all
the itiuea between herself and Russia

-Manchuria in the hope of arriving at a
aatiafactory settlement. In all of this
the British government acquiesces.
