DISTRESS IN SIBERIA. According to intelligence from Vladivostock, the present position of affairs in the Amur'Province and t.he Maritime Province causes serious anxiety. Owing to events in China, there is a scarcity of labour at a time of year when it is urgently needed. Many men are taking part in the military operations, great damage has been done by floods, and the trans- port of troops with war material and provisions has hindered the arrival of the means of subsistence for the population of those provinces. The prohibition of the foreign coastwise trade has also prevented the importation of supplies. The necessaries of life have consequently become so dear that the p'eople are unable to procure them, and their condition is daily becoming more deplorable. The distress is so great that even the majority of the Government institutions are obliged to apply to the cential administration for pecuniary assistance on behalf of the officials, who cannot subsist on their ordinary pay. The harvest in the affected provinces has been very bad this year, and it is anticipated that there will be a famine, to mitigate the terrible effects of which there are no material resources available.
