READY FOR A FIGHT
Oyama Has Russian Army Com
MAY PROVE SEDAN FOR RUSSIA
Oofora Peaca Negotiation Can Begin,
Greatest Battle of the War
May be Fought.
London, Juno 1". Tho practical cer
tainty now that tho pence negotiations
cannot begin for nnothcr month lends
to tlio conviction that nnothcr battle
will bo fought in tho interval. Accord
ing to tho Datly Telegraph's Tientsin
correspondent, a Japanese forward
movement has nlrendy coininenced, in
spite of tho rainy season.
The Dally Telegraph's lokio corre
spondent gives nn interesting idea of
tho situation from a correspondent who
is said to bo In n good position to know
tho actual facts. This correspondent
says that tlio principal Russian depot
is at Gunshu Pjs, whence many light
railways are being constructed north
ward to facilitate retreat. Lieutenant
General Linlcvitch. bewildered by the
strategy of tho Japanese, is making
repeated reconnaissances and throwing
out Innumerable scouts. Nevertheless,
at the present moment, tho correspond

FRANCE SAVED FROM WAR.
Delcasse's Resignation Prevented a
Conflict with Germany.
Paris, Juno 17. When M. Delcasso
resigned the potrfoho of the foreign
office a few days ago, Germany and
Franco were on the verge of war. M.
Delcasso thought that Germany was
bluffing. Primo Minister Rouvier, re
membering 1870, believed otherwise.
Germany had been for some weeks
strengthening her garrisons near the
French frontier. Franco responded
with a similar move. The kaiser, ig
noring his own provocation, notified
Franco that, if she did not cease this
military movement, Germany would
consider it an unfriendly act. This, of
course, was equivalent to an ultima
tum, and M. Itouvier sent a concilia
Within a few hours after M. Del
cawo's retirement, M. Itouvier made
certain representations to Russia
which had far greater influence upon
tho czar's present course than even
Mr. Roosevelt's letter. M. Delcasto
had done everything in his power to
support the Russian policy and uphold
the alliance, and had refrained from
pressing advice, peaceful or otherwise,
on tho czar's government.
M. Rouvier said to Russia, in effect,
that the vitial interests of France re
quired the czar to do something under,
the terms of the alliance for her pro
tection against German aggression.
It was imperative that Russia restore
her military strength on her western
frontier and be prepared to tako an
active part in tho campaign if France

Japan Announces Three, and Nnmos
of Two Russians are Known.
St. Petersburg, Juno JO. Thoro only
remain fixing of tho time of meeting
and tlio number ot plenipotentiaries
for tlio peace conference with Japan.
Finding that Japan was not disposed to
accept Paris, which was Russia's II rat
choice, or Tho llnguo, which President
Roosevelt suggested, Russia readily
consented to tho selection ol Washing
ton. Japan, It is understood, also sig
nified that sho would name three exalt

continues to be bo mentioned, but there
is no evidence that tho emperor will
give htm a brief to conduct negotia
tions. Considering his well known
viows against Russia's aggressivo policy
in tho inr hast, the selection of M.
Witto would bo regarded as tantamount

The selection ot Washington makes
it certain that several weeks must
elapse before the first meeting ot tho
negotiators is possible.
Unless President Roosovelt is ablo to
induce tho belligerents in tho mean
time to agree to au armistice, the fear
is general that tho interim will witness
another bloody battle In Manchuria.
Russia, while she could not place her
self in tho position ot directly request
ing an armistice, might welcome it, if
tho suggestion came from tho president.
FOR CONFERENCE CITY.
Chotce by Russia and Japan It
rowed Down to Three.
Washington, Juno 15. Gradually
tho negotiations for peace in tho Far
East aro ncating a focus. Tho one
point to which tho energies ot those di
rectly concerned in them now are being
directed is tho cholco of a place for
holding the conference of tho plenipo
tentiaries ot the belligerents.
It is known officially that three cities
are under consideration by Russia and
Japan. These cities, named in the
order ot the likelihood of their final se
lection, are Washington, Tlio Hague
Thus far no decision has been reach
ed. Paris and London have been elim
inated from the question. It is under
stood that the Russian government ob
jects to an Asiatic city, its preference
being for som European capital. After
objecting to the holding of the confer
ence in Paris, the Japanese government
expressed a willingness to consider oth
er places which afforded adequate facil
ities, although it is assumed that Ja
pan's preference would be for some Far
Eastern city practically within the
theater ot war. Finally, however, the
selection seems to have narrowed down
to tho three cltiea named.
