The papers, which will be published in n mngaziiio, will he in the form of mi autobiography. Naturally the biography will in. iicvotfid in large measure to the priviitK side of public events, and one chapter will tell interesting things about the Portsmouth peace conference between the Russian and Japanese diplomats. It lias long been known that the war brought Jipan almost to the verge of bankruptcy, but. the general opinion has prevailed that after the severe defeats at. Port Arthur and along the Yalu Tiver, it. was the Russians who sued for peace. But. as f'ol. Roosevelt will tell the story, it was; ilic victorious Japanese who took the first step to end the war. The offer of this government to assist, in terminating hostilties came not on suggestion of Russia, but at the direct request of Japan. Emperor's Letter as Proof Col. Roosevelt has at his disposal documentary proof of his account, of the peace negotiations. Most striking of the papers- that he will bring lor.vard is a personal letter from the late emperor to Mr. Roosevelt, asking him to open a way for peace negotiations. The text of this letter is expected to produce a sensation in Japan. It is recalled ihat'the terms finally accepted by Japan were resented by the Japanese, people, and it is thought that the publication now of a letter from the emperor almost interceding for peace, will revive the old feeling against the government, if not against the throne. During the Russian war, Baron Ko-goro Takahir;; was Japanese minister to the United States, and he became one of the Japanese peace envoys to the Portsmouth conference. Presumably he presented the emperor's letter to Col. Roosevelt that brought about the conference. On the conclusion of pear', the Japanese legation here was rc-ommended to the rank of embassy, and Viscount Aoaki came from Berlin as the first Japonese ambassador. Sought to Recover Letter In official circles here there has long been a story-never before published-that the viscount's most important, mission to Washington was the recovery of the text of the emperor's letter to Col. Roosevelt. In that purpose, however, he failed. During his stay in Washington many important events took place. The Japanese school controversy swept the Pacific coast, and Viscount Aoki handled the situation admirably. At about that time the American battleship fleet sailed around the world, touching at Japanese ports. In both these incidents the ambassador's ability was fully displayed. But without any warning he was recalled, as diplomats here believe, bV.ause he could not induce Col. Roosevelt to return the letter. However that may he, the viscount reached Yokohama, in obedience to a summons, without knowing that disgrace awaited him. He was met by an imperial functionary who told him he was recalled for good. The ara'bassa-dor, it is said, almost collapsed. The emperor's determination to recover the letter, it is said, explains the re-assignment of Baron Takahlra to Washington-this time as ambassador. He returned to Washington in February, lflos. But he did'not get the latter, and in September, 1900, he was recalled to Japan to receive domestic honors. E. F. B. JOHNSTONE, K.

Then Solicitor Ball asked irtiiey �wanted to make all the commissions under the new charter elective rather than appointive. There will be a hospital commission, a police commission, a charity commission, a health commission, and two or three others. Those objecting to the appointing of the hospital commission preferred to leave the matter undecided for the moment, and it will be considered at a later meeting. Then the actual reading of the charter was started. The clock in the meantime having ambled along till the hands indicated 9.45. For nearly two hours the charter was read from where it was left off by the old council, and when the committee knocked off work they had succeeded In digesting about ten pages, all of which was more or less routine matter dealing with the offices and duties of secretary and city clerk. Mayor Hardie is not sure yet that he prefers a division of the office of secretary-treasurer. However, nothing definite was done about the matter last night. When the clause dealing with gratuities for those who through old age or accident become unable to work while in the city employ was read, Mayor Hardie objected and said he would prefer to see a pension clause inserted. No one had any particulars showing how such a scheme is working in other cities, so the present gratuity clause'will >be adopted, and when the charter is next amended as it probably will be two sessions hence, the pension will be provided for. Owing to the slow progress of the evening, those who had opposed handing the charter over to the special committee withdrew their opposition-and tlie mayor and city solicitor will for the next ten days spend most of -their time at it, calling in the council several times to ratify their work, and amend it where amendments may be deemed necessary. -! rt L dufperin street ..gar GpLrd$tone a venue TRAVELS OF A CLIPPED EAR Diagram showing how Lloyd Watson's ear was cut off and carried tWo blocks by a street caK brought back and sewed on,(In Parktiale, Toronto, Hospital.

A A London, Jan. 3.-Painful information of widespread unhappiness in the Russian Imperial family has again reached Que n Alexandra from her 'widowed sister, the Dowager Empress. In the first place, the Czarina is in worse health than ever. It\ was reported a few months ago that she had improved- under the treatment of unlicensed specialists, but instead of hav ing improved the neuritis, the inflam. mation of the nerve substance Itself has increased, and so � affected the Czarina's limbs that she cannot walk. The EmpTess is moved from room to room in the palace while recumbent on a couch. At other time reclining i-n a 'boat-shaped sleigh, she is driven in the park. * Among the distresses of the Czar, Is the fact that his younger sister, the Grand Duchess Olga, wife-of Duke Peter of Oldenburg, finds herself un-. happily married. She has asked the Czar for permission to secure a divorce, so that she may marry a young officer of'the Cuirassiers. The Emperor has angrily refused permission. But it is against his brother, Grand Duke Michael Alexandrovitch, that the Czar's hottest anger is directed. Last month, after the confirmation of his marriage with the divorced Mine. Sheremetivskai, Grand Duke Michael made an Irrevocable marriage settlement on her. This so infuriated the Czar, that, despite their mother's appeals, he struck hiB brother's name Horn membership in the imperial household. This means that the Grand Duke Michael has lost his annual allowances of 200,000 roubles' (about $100,-000), the'free use of five residences in Russia, a large staff of-attendants and carriages. >� Besides this, the Grand Duke has been stripped of His ranks in the army. He has gone abroad incognito-really an exile. BNL Chicago, .Jan. 3.-A writ of. supersedeas staying execution of the sentences imposed upon the dynamite conspirators recently convicted at Indianapolis was issued by the United States circuit court of appeals ; here today. Bail "was based on the number of years which the prisoners have been sentenced to serve, $10,66.0 for each year. Defense lawyers stated that, money enough to admit all "to bail would be forthcoming. ' .''� CANNERIES DO NOT PAY ; Lorlent, France, Jan. 2.-One hundred and sixteen sardine canning establishments in Brittany.!have been:, closed by their owners, who �.- declare that trade makes it impossible to continue. The trouble-is" attributed to the fishermen, who refuse' to adopt measures of fishing' which would' ensure adequate', catches.' Wni. Todd, formerly . of Hamilton, has been arrested in Seaforth, Wash,, charged with the theft of ?2300 from his employers. alleged-to have deserted his family' for another woman. "1 Can You Beat This?
