TOKIO, Aug. 31. No official action

here that : the armistice will be speed

that any danger exists in the interim
of clashes in the field, for the reason
that both the Japanese and Russian
commanders have been apprised of the
progress of the Portsmouth conference.

to issue a formal statement relating
to the result of the conference. - -

Several bridges in the east portion
of the city have been closed to travel
because of their dilapidated and un
safe condition and many complaints
are being made by the residents of
that- section on account of the great
inconvenience' caused by the closed
thoroughfares. The bridge spanning
the mill- race on Twenty-first-street,
just south. of stte, has been Closed for
more than two weeks, and so far no
steps have been taken looking toward
the repair or rebuilding of the struc
ture. .One end of the bridge gave way
under a load of wood, but fortunately
the driver escaped being hurt, and no
serious damage was done to the team
or wagon,' Street Commissioner- Kurtz
examined the bridge with a view of
making repairs, but - found that the
timbers were rotten to the core, and
the structure was then left with tae
planks torn up for a considerable dis
tance and is still in that condition.
Private parties, however, bridged, the
gap with a few plank in order to ac
commodate pedestrians. ' ;
The bridge spanning the, mill race
on Fifteenth1 street, south of state, is
also closed to travel, and no repairs are
in progress. "' The foott bridge at this
point is also torn' up and pedestrians
as well as teams are compelled to go
several blocks out of their way to
cross from Ferry to State street, or
vice .versa. The only bridge to ac

between Fourteenth and Twenty-fifth
streets is that on .Nineteenth street,
and even this is in 'a dilapidated condi
