H., about Aug 5 Baron Koinura will on that occas iin commuaicato to M. Wltte the es lentlaîa of Japan's peace terms foi further neeoi-'i^i-'ona. This, It iO; declared, will not be done la a spirit of tloflance; Indeed, there are many evidences in the possession of tho neutral governments that Japan la comrng to the Washington conference not imbued with a deslro to humiliate Russia but only to exact termîj which will infure a lasting peace in the far East and which will in a measure compensate Japan for the financial losses in the present conflict. It Is known that Japan will demand BU indemnity that will approximately cover the cost of the war to date. The amount 1b still a eecret, but It Is based upon the most careful estiujalea of thi ■ cost of the war and will be accompan Isfl by a more or less detailed Btate-ment, showing the method by which r,tho final figures were computed. It will not fall far short of one billion dollars, according to advices reachlnr here from well informed sources. Sakhalin and Liao Tung. Japan's other essentials to the continuance of the negotiations are believed to be the cession to Japan of Sakhalin, of the Liao Tung peninsula and of the railway as far as Harbin ; . the recognition of Japan's prédominât ing influonoo in Corea and the return of Manchuria to China. If the Russian plenipotentiaries are prepared to accept these essentials, the oiBclals here are confident that the basis will be laid for negotiations sure to lead to the signing of the treaty of Washington, bringing peace Tn the Far East As for the subjects remaining to be discussed a tedious one. It Is believed '' and one on which Russia will be dis-, posed to noRotiate with the greatest caution, is the program for the restoration of Manchuria to Chinese control. Because of the confusion and general (llsnnipr likely to ensue in the province after the withdrawal of the foreign annlea, ^apari believes : that certain time will be required in which to restore public order and the establishment of a regular system of Chinese police administration. During this period, Japan will Insist that she remain in control of the ad-" alnistration of the province, at the Earn© time giving a definite pledge finally to evacuate as soon as China shall be in a position to take up the reins of government there and maintain order. It is believed the policy to bo eng-gested by Japan In this matter will sot be unlike that followed by the Washington government with reference to Cuba, American; troops being withdrawn from the Island as soon aa astable government was In control of the situation. A second subject for the plenlpa teatlarles to settle will be the sur render of all the Russian ships now Interned In neutral ports. Some persons believe that this demand will form one Of the "essoutials." while others claim P^und for bplievlng that Russia may *.Co,-.Japan_.Jto^-ialie--.lliese-irL--pari payment of the Indemnity.

The JapiineW landing at Dekastries, which is the termlnuj of the only cable line connect Ing the mainland with the island o1 Sakhalin, la regarded by the London morning, newspapers as an attempt tc eeize the mouth of the Amur river In order to enable the Japanese to dis patch an army up that great watei way to threaten the Russian communi cations. Japanese gunboats and " torpedo boats could thus reach Harbin and give effectual assistance to any attack on the Russian fortifications. Both the Ussurl and Sfingarl rivers are navigable for vessels of light draft and thus the JapancBe could advance Inland in three different directions for a considerable distance. If, as Is supposed, Japan has a rlvei expedition in readiness, the mere threat of its advance may suffice to change the plana of the Rtisslans and cbmpeljhe retirement from the Kiiin and Penghwa districts upon Harbin Will VIeit President Today.
