gates at Shanghai.
WU MAKES FOUR PROPOSALS.
WILL BAR "UNDESIRABLES
For Infants and Children.
In January, 1913, When New Pact Is
Arranged, Cxar Will Refuse to Re
lease Obligation of Military
Service May Adopt Plan
Washington. Dec. 10. Tbnt the pres
ident's notification of the Russian gov
ernment of hs intention to terminate
the treaty of 1832 after the expiration
of the required year's notice Is to be
followed Immediately by diplomatic
discussion looking to the negotiation of
a new treaty Is the understanding hero.
It Is regarded as even more certain,
however, that the now treaty, If nego
tiated, will not contain a provision for
the reciprocal and unrestricted admis
sion by one government of nil citizens
of the other. It Is understood, on the
other hand, that though the new treaty
will make less broad the reciprocal
pledges of the two countries regarding
treatment to be nccorded each other's
citizens the net result will be a con
siderable improvement In the situa
tion now so strenuously objected to by
The solution of the problem Is ex
pected by both governments to be
found In a system whereby each gov
ernment will admit citizens of the
other country vouched for by the gov
ernment of that country. It has been
proposed that a plan similar to that by
which Japanese laborers are kept out
of the United States will be adopted.
The United States government does
not exclude Japanese directly, but
through a solemn pledge by the mika
do that he will not issue passports to
any of his subjects to come to this
country except under certain prescrib
It must be borne in mind constantly
that In a treaty the language Is iden
tical for both countries, and what one
Is pledged to the other ,is equally
bound to fulfill. As the Russian gov
ernment has already reminded the
United States that the latter excludes
from this country millions of Russian
subjects who are either Mongolians or
polygamous peoples like the Moham
medans, this government cannot .nsk
the czar to let down all the bars reg
ulating administration of aliens to Rus
sia in the cases of American citizens.
It may be accepted as a positive fact
that each government will insist on its
right to declare certain aliens "unde
sirables." Russlu also will insist on the reten
tion of the policy she has maintained
successfully for years of refusing to
recognize naturalized American Jews,
native to Russia, as released from all
obligations to the czar's government
through their American citizenship.
This attitude, which the United States
does not attempt to oppose, renders
Jews returning or desiring to return to
Russia as liable to military service and
other obligations which, Russia holds,
are never renounced by her citizens.
Assurances of the willingness of the
Russian government to enter into dis
cussion looking toward a new treaty
are understood to have been received
by the United States before notice of
the Intended termination of the treaty
At the stnte department there Is not
the slightest doubt but that friendly
relations between the two countries
will continue uninterrupted between
now and the termination of the treaty,
and evcu after the termination.
NO PASSPORT CONCESSIONS.
Russia Will Not Yield to American
St. Petei-sburg Dec. 10. It is appar
ent that Russia has no intention of
yieldlug any concession whatsoever on
the Jewish passport question, no mat
ter what proposals may be made hy
the Uultud States. The members of
the doumu are skeptical as to the pos
sibility of the Democratic party tak
ing any serious action in the matter.
The leaders of the douma assert that
no member of the cabinet would dare
to touch the question.
Ambassador Guild, acting under in
structions from, Washington, saw M.
Sasouoir, iho Russian minister of for
eign affairs, and the latter expressed
the willingness of his government to
have issued instructions to Russian
consuls to pass freely all Jews who
are entitled to admittance to the em
pire under the present regulations.
This, ho expfaiued, was iu view of the
fact that especially within the last ten
years, '.vheu busiuess attracted many
foreigners to Russia, there had bceu
numerous complaints that a large
number of persons who were in reality
acceptable were denied ndmlttunce to
the country by Individual consuls. M.
Sasouoff said that he-could go no fur
ther, as the Judicial status of Jews,
whether native or foreign, could uot
now bo raised.

ETJSSIA MODIFIES TERMS.
Czar's Minister Convinced of Persia's
Paris, Dec. 10. The Temps says that
as a result of the conference here be
tween M. Sazonoff, the Russian minis
ter of foreign nffalrs, and the Persian
minister to France, Russia has modi
fled the terms of her recent ultimatum
to the shah's government.
The reason for this Is that the czar's
ministers see a proof of Persia's good
will In her decision to dismiss Shuster
from ids post ns comptroller of Persian
finances. The Temps adds that now
that this -chief obstacle to good rela
tions between Russia and Persia has
been removed the czar is disposed to
seek some arrangement whereby the
Anglo-Russian agreement may bo rec
onciled with Persia's dignity,. So far
as the selection of foreigners for im
portant posts is concerned, Persia (is
disposed to choose them from among
the citizens of secondary powers.

out Storbeck, who has been regarded
In some quarters as a new "white
hope." Tho end came iu the eleventh

Revolutionary Diplomat Force. Impe
rial Representative to Observe Arm
istice and Wires Own Leaders to
Cease Military Operations.
Rebels Win First Round.
Shanghai, Dec. 10. Tho conference
between the representatives of the
imperial government and the revolu
tionary commissioners opened here
when Tang Shao YI and five others
named by the premier, Yuan Shlh Kal,
met Dr. Wu Ting Fang nnd the five
other delegates from the revolution
aries. The principal business of the first
meeting related to alleged breaches of
the armistice which was recently de
clared. Dr. Wu complained that the
truce had been frequently broken by
the Mnnchu soldiers, nnd he insisted
that Tang telegraph the premier to
have this stopped. There was a pro
longed discussion of tho matter, but
in the end Tang gave his consent to
do as Dr. Wu demanded.
The discussion was in the most
friendly tone. When this point was
settled Wu refused to go on with the
conference until the' answer of Yuan
Shlh Knl had been received. In the
meantime Wu wired Li Yuan Hung
and other revolutionary leaders to ab
stain from hostilities.
It Is generally considered here that
by this conference the revolutionaries
have won tho first round. This seems
reasonable In view of the fnct that
Tang held out for two hours before
ho would yield to the demands of Wu
Wu, on behalf of his associates, pre
sented four proposals, which, of course,
were not acted upon. They were for
tho abolition of the Manchu dynasty,
the establishment of a republican form
of government, the pensioning of the
Imperial family and generous treat
ment for all Manchus.
Armed police nnd detectives gunrd
tho conference hall and accompany the
commissioners in all their goings and
comings. Chinese posters have been
nffixed to the walls about the British
settlement urging the assassination of
Tang Shao Yi.
Preparing For War.
Peking, Dec. 10. The Chinese news
papers here assert that In spite of the
conference at Shanghai the prepara
tions of both sides for war are more
active than ever. The native press
also reiterates tho statement thnt Wu
Ting- Fang telegraphed the foreign dip
lomats urging them to leave Peking
and go to Tientsin, but leaving the
legation guards behind. This, it Is
said, wns done to clear the way for the
INDIANA FIGHT ON.

paigns of organization for the selection
of members of the new state commit
tee in January, and every county in
tho state Is being visited by represent
atives of the two factions.
The Taft people claim that Leo's ob
ject is really to organize the state for
Roosevelt nnd that ho Is nothing more
than a figurehead for former Senator
Beveiidge, who attributes his defeat
last year to the stand the president
took In his Winona speech on yie
