What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Witte promptly refused to consider, the oom- prOmise proposition of President Roose velt, that Russia repurchase the north ern half o f the Island o f Sahkalln, pay ing therefor 1,800,000,000 yen ($600,- 000,000). Not one kopeck of indemnity, under whatever guise, will Russia pay Japan, the czar’s representatives at the peaoe conference, declare, and the outlook for oonolusion of peaoe terms was gloomier than tonight. The Japanese plenipotentiaries at the oonension of the afternoon session of peaoe oonferenoe, threw their cards open the table. It was the dramatio momen, tthe moment to whloh all the previous procedlngs of the oonferenoe bad led. Protocals Involving agree ment upon eight of the 12 conditions originally presented by Japan had been signed. One or the other must make amove or the plenipotentiaries had reached the parting o f the ways. The adversaries faced eaoh other across the table. Of course it was undeirstood what would happen, but that in k way made it more dramatic. Figuratively, President Roosevelt suddenly entered the oonferenoe ri M. Witte sat silent aAl the move in the great diplomatic game pa*M> Japan. Baron Komura, in a’ words, explained that Japan in her great desire for peaoe, was ready to make “ oerfain modifications” of the oriignal artlolee in the hope that Rus sia could see it possible to accept them. He then presented In writing to M. Witte the compromise proposition which President Roosevelt had sug gested. It was conorete and speciflo, and it followed the lines outlined in these dispatches.
