The  payment  of   a big      indemnity,   Ihey   declare,  would be  too  humiliating.    The   No-  ,voe Vremya says bluntly  that if Japan asks  loo much, it will pay Russia to prolong the contest indefinitely,   while the Russ argues that     if  representatives  of  the Russian   people  ait* called  together,   Japan    will  see hei self confronted by  the whole,  'any  political system  aimed  against  'nalion, and she'will readily agree lo Germany.

The      understanding    here  is    hat  Emperor Nicholas went so far i? to  say     to Ambassador Meyer lint'l.e  would   like  to  know  what   Japan*'s  terms would  be.    This inquiry'   was  not   (o  be cons tried  as  asking     for  peace,      but only as  telling friends  that before      taking- so grave >a step  on   their advice   lhe  Russian  government     might propose and naturally  desire to anow through: these friends  how Japan regards peace.    Japan, it  is believed iii     government'quarters-  here,      will lay down specific peace  conditions,   far  more  reluctant than  at any stage of the war ..because, preparations   have  been  made  to carry  the  campaign  to Russian .territory;  take  Vladivostok,   and   then  exclude  Russia  from  the  Pacific, Unless  her  high  conditions  are completed,   this  is ,a crude .-,   expression of what  is  thought' to' be- Japan's immediate policy.

Three" explosions  are said "lo have occurred   on board  before she foundered.   She hail      on  board  eighteen officers  and   men,   in-  eluding her regular crew of men who  * were .training.   Fourteen of the number  were drowned,   and   the     others  were picked up.   The disaster occurred while the "A 8" was  proceeding  to sea for practice, accompanied  by* -  -another submarine boat and a torpedo boat.   Three explosions  were seen  from the shore to occur on board the  '-'���������A  &".   which  suddenly  disappeared-  Tugs and"divers immediately proceeded to the scene.  The sinking of Uie'British  submarine boat recalls the sinking' of the  submarine  boat  "w 5,"  off Queens-  town February  IB,  as  the result    of  explosions on board that vessel,  and  the     sinking of the submarine boat  "A 1:; off'Portsmouth March IS last  year, as the result of being run down  by'    a steamer  while thc submarine  boat'swas submerged.   The ��������� explosions  aboard tlie  "A 5" was reported-   as  being so violent lhat it was     heard  ten.miles away, an-d shook" the submarine's-convoy, thc-Hazard,     from i  stem  to stem.   Six  men  lost their'  lives  and  twelve  were seriously    injured  in this disaster.   The disaster  to  "A  1"   was even  more appalling.  She was     sulifiierged  near  the naval  lightship     off Portsmouth when she  was run down by a steamer of    the  Donald Curry  line and all on board  of her, eleven officers and men, were  drowned.   The loss of tlie submarine  boat was not. known for some hours  after the liner had :reporled to     thc  manoeuvering  fleet   that   she       had  struck a   torpedo,  and after ft   long  search  the 'ill-fated  sulvm<u:ine     was  discovered.    It was  presumed,     that  the steamer  in striking the submarine boat upset her  and spilled    the  gasoline in  the tanks, rendering her  helpless.       The crew were  battened  down  and  were suffocated   by      the  fumes of gaosliiie.  .!���������' '���������   U '   ������  Tangier, Morocco, June 8.���������Gerrard  A. Lo wilier, British Minister to Mo.  rocco, presented his credentials to  the Sultan today. The ceremony was  attended by the customary picturesque Moroccan display. Mr. Lowther  in his speech assured the Sultan of  lhe sincerity of King Edward and of  (he British government in their desire for the welfare of, Morocco and  their "earnestness for the maintain-  ance of the power and authority of  lhe sherifian ruler." The latter reciprocated the;wish Tor a continuance of the traditional,friendship between the two countries. Throughout the interview- the Sultan was  impassive, almost indifferent. The  political situation remains befogged,  and will not be cleared up until Mr.  Lowther has a private audience to  the Sultan. It is -reported that pri-  va te offers have been made - to the  Sultan of a loan of $25,000,000 and  it is alleged that the offer is supported by American capitalists , but  a suitable guarantee remains the difficulty, as lhe customs are pledged  to France for the next fifteen years.  It. is learned on authority  that the sale'"of the Esqjiiimalt and   Nanaimo  Railway's   stock  to      the  Canadian  Pacific   Railway  Company includes the land grant and also   the   unsold   portions   of   the  city  of   Ladysmith,   including  the waterworks  system  complete.  What this means to the well wishers of-this city ican scarcely be at first appreciated. Who ever  knew a town in which the C P. R. was largely interest-ed in that did not prosper, if prosperity was  at all possible? c  . The transfer of the C.P. K. of (he entire interests of the E. & N. took place yesterday. The employees now in charge of the Company's interests will continue as heretofore until July 1st. The  deal is exactly as stated in The Lodger a week ago, on the authority of Mr. R. Marpole, although at  that time details were not obtainable".  The Wellington Colliery Company retains certain - water rights and a strip of land f-0 feet wide,  each- side ,of theXwasher flume- Also certain other water rights toward Nanaimo River. Also all  lanJs lying along tha water-frciit below the tracks, out as far as the gravel pit, except Uiat the C.  P.R. have certain wharf and trackage privileges. All present employees will be retained in the service of  the C.P.R.  so far as   is now arranged  Certain  officials  of the C.P.  R.  will ibe along the line accustoming themselves'to    the conditions,  ' etc.  for handling  theit*   lew property  during the  balance  of this   onth.    After   this   mcnlh   everything  will lie under the dircciiuns of the C. P. R.  The Colonist of this morning says: Transfers and agreements under which the C.P.R. obtained the  stock of the E. & N.

At this place  the east and  west banks of  the  river     were   washed   out,   the   viaduct  which conveys Hie water  from  ICast  creek under  the canal  was seriously  damaged and a hole 150 feet long and.  ���������extending  20  feet below  the level  of  ths canal   was   torn   in  the embankment.

Paris, June 8.���������It is defi-nilely known that the Russian foreign minister, Count Lamsdorff, seconded by M. Wilte, president  of the committee of ministers, has invited overtures through, the  Russian representatives abroad to learn Japan's dispositions ami  (terms of peace. These overtures, it is said here, began three  days ago, and were the basis of. the decidedly more hopeful view  which the officials began to have.  The British and American influence are chiefly relied on to  move Japan now that Count Lamsdorff and M. Wilte have made  Hie preliminary approaches. Diplomats hero hold the view that Tokio would prefer to continue lhe war until Vladivostok is taken  and all the territory up to Lake Baikal is under Japanese control. The diplomats also believe that Tokio will hesitate to lay  down terms until it is clear that the Emperor is willing to treat  for   peace.
