London, Jano 10 Notwithstanding Russia's indirect feelers the Military Council at Tsarskoe Selo decided to mobilisa two army corps, ono iv Poland, the other m tbe South. Russia's expectation of peace is less sanguine than that felt m Washington. Marshal Oyama'a reports indicate a slow but steady advance on Kaikuan, on the Kirin road. Viscount Hayashi, tho Japanese Ambassador iv London, interviewed, said Japan's attitude was unchanged. She was willing to negotiate, whenever Eussia officially intimated her desire to enter iuto direct negotiations. After receiving assurances from Toldo and St. Petersburg that the proposal would be welcome, President Roosevelt pent a note to Japan and Russia, suggesting that the time had come, m the interests of all mankind, for him to try and terminate a war which sets back the world's progress. He earnestly urges the combatants, m their own interests.and also m those of the whole civilised world, to open direct and exclusive negotiations with each other, without intermediaries, to ace it' it is possible to come to terms. President Roosevelt is willing to arrange the preliminaries, if desired.
