It may bo regarded os praiically cwtaln that fee will be replaccfl by M. Witte, pres-Lnt committee of ministers, who all fijong bas been conBldered the Rus- •Igo statesman pre-eminently ^^ to undertake the difficult task of ue-gj^atlBg peace with Japanese. However, though the emperor, who CD two previous occasions flatly declined to accept M. Witte, has now indicated his readiness to make the appointment, the commission will not be actually signed until Foreign Minuter tamsdürff, who throughout has tMB M. Wltte's wnrm supporter, has bad an audience with the emperor today. To that extent only the-matter may te regarded as unsettled, nothing being certain In Russia as a prominent diplomat remarked, until the em-fsror's signature has been alllxed. M. lintte'B selection will undoubtedly bo tailed as a practical assurance of leace. , While It would bo a mistake to denominate him as^ a peace at any prlco man, M. ^Y'ttQ-fearnestly believes that the struggle^ jhould be ended and ibould be succeeded by an underatand-jng between Russia änd Japan which would ensure peace In the F&r Bast "W ifilf ¥-iWrfitary.' ^ -iiideed,-'he- te- per-, ionally believed to be In favor of a iasEO-Japanese alliance. The conduct of the negotiations by M. Witte, it Is felt by the peace party here, would inspire instant confidence In Japan. M. MuravU'ff's retirement, ostensibly cwlng to reaepns of Ill-health, is in Tcalify due to the fact' that the emperor became convinced that the ne-. _|oUatlons might be Jeopardized if he went to Washington. M. Muravleff hiiDEelf, upon consideration, qulto frankly recognized his lack of dlplo-toatlc training and his want of ac-cuaintance with the questions Involved and with equal frankness fexpressed tatiefactlon that he had been relieved.

Tho appointment was signed after midnight and it clothes M. Wltte with plcnlpotcntary powers. M. Wltte Is the leading liberal of Russia and the appointment will probably be welcomed by Japan. M. Wltte advised the withdrawal of the Ilu83lan troops from . Manchuria, as it was known that the government was unprepared for war, Disapprovar of this policy led to his downfall as the minister of finance.PEACE IN SIGHT. .

' 'f. New York, July 13._A London dispatch from Vienna says a private let-ter from St. Petersburg contains the Information that the police have dls-^«vercd elaborate preparations for blowing up tho castle of Ilinakoji, """• Moscow where the Czar with hla Imperial family intended to take up ^ brief residence. Many arreMs w^^^^^^ ■ ' ■ F- Albany, July 13.—William O. Dodc'.-. sheriff, and Frank F. Hufnail, couu..\ c'erk of Montgomery county, were re fnoved from office by Governor H Ik gms on cnarges preferred againrl tl-em by the Amsterdam Bar atjsociu tion, and investIgaitd b>; Clarence A Farnum of Wei'.svllle, fepeclal commis sloner representing the governor Dodds is a Republican and Hufnal! a Democrat. The principal charg» against Dodds was thiU he coiiectec Iraudulently |1,014.75 from the count) for the board of prisoners. The gov ernpr says; "This Is the, main charge against him, although other irregularities art cllegea and proved." The governor makes tne followîni comment on the dismissal: "The accused disclaims gulltj Knowledge and Intentional misconduct but on the evidence 1 am satisfied thai he v/as cognizant of the fraud and an active participant therein. Public scr vants must be held to strict accountability for the performance of theli ¿uties. Honesty and Integrity are the first qualiiicatlons of those who repre sent the majesty of the law. "Private morals are debauched when a public official tolerates law breaking by others and loots the public treasury himself. A sheriff ^hc cannot be-^trusted to make out an honest account for the board of pris onera cannot be trusted witli the ro' sponslblllty of executing tho laws ir "Dis-^countyr.............- -......... ■■........ "My power Is limited to the removal of the sheriff from his office. The county of Montgomery has a further duty to perform, an<l It Is to be hoped tfint its offlclaJs will act with prompt cess and lirmnes.s." Several charges......against County Clerk Hufnall are referred to in the opinion of the gov^ernor^ He was ac cuBed of paying fees to jurors tc K'hich they were not eirc4tled; that he yald board bills of juryiiR'n and wit po.sri<-s without iihthority and that lie paid coirt attendants who did not attend" sessions of tho court. The governor fir»'« down an opinion on the Hufnall ease in which he says:. ' "It further appears by tho evidence c' tho county judge that after pro-cc-edingtt for the removal of Hufnall had been publicly discussed, Hufnall vas guilty of such susplcloua acts In connection with the drawing of a grand jury before which his case ndght come,, that the county judge felt ol)liged to rebuke him sharply and to insist that he place the box before him and draw the ballots therefrom, one by one as the law requires. Among the first names drawn by tho clerk were those of two of his bondsmen. "The Inference Is possible that Huf nalV~lîird ^ no "intent to defraud the 'county of MontKouiery by reason of. the Improper payments made by him and it does not appear t^at be dprive(' nny pecuniary gain from the transac tions. The learned commlEBiorFer be fore whom the evidence was taken was so Impressed with this feature ol the case, which was skilfully present ed by Hufriail's counsel, that he reported to me as his opinion that Hufnall sliould not tie removed becansc his misconduct was without criminal Intent. "The commissioner's duty was to-^e port findings of facts merely. The re Bponslblllty Is upon me to draw con elusions therefrom and from the evl dence. The commissioner appears to lave considered this proceeding as of n^quasi-tf'lnilnal nature. I do not m view It. . S"County clt ks should be competent as well as honest A careless county clerk may be as 1 armful to the coun ty as a dishonest one and sboulu t^ removed as promptly. The office Is of a highly respohsible nature and itj duties should be entrusted to those alone who have the ability as well as the disposition to safeguard the in terests of the county. The evidence clearly establishes misconduct on the part of tlie clerk and I am satisfied that the public welfare requires his removal."
