PEACE IS NEARER AT HAND.
Russians' Only Hope It In a Decisive
Defeat of General Nogl.
London, March 7. Tho Intensely
dramatic situation In Manchuria dovui
opod by (leneral Nogl' rapid advance

raised excitement lu Kuropo to the
highest pitch. Kiigllsh papers for it

patches. It I believed here that (Jcnernl Ku
roputkin I in it wry tight place, and
tho chance of his extricating hi nrmy
are keenly discussed. Tho abandon
ment of Mukden is considered to )m in
evitable, the only question Itelng
whether ho will bo able to effect a re
treat to Tie jins").
An Immediate repulse of General
N'ogl's army, It I held, might nave thu
situation, but failing that, General
Kuropntkln will have committed to
him the dangerous and dlllicult task of
retiring northward, harassed by Hank
ing attack by the Japanese army.
Whatever may be the result it is felt
that peace Is appreciably nearer.
According to the Dally Telegraph's
Antwerp corrcsponcdnt, thu Russiun

throughout tlm war the principal center
of Russian purchase for carrying on
thu conflict in the Far Kant.

ministry desire to learn, informally,
privately, as It were, how such a pro

That the statu department has some
Idea that the commercial treaty may
