the negotiations failed, the result being
that Germany turned to Great Britain,

Intimation that France was supporting Rus

Russian alliance to China, as announced
yesterday, was a reply to the Anglo-Japanese

NEW THEORY ON
Can? of Hay Fever.
lay fever is not so much a result of cli-
Ittic conditions as it is a showing of the
, eak spots" in the general condition of
f body. If a hay fever sufferer can be fed
to a prime condition of health by the
use of well-selected food the chances are
the hay fever will not present Itself.
As an illustration, a lady In Cave Spring,
(Ja., explains how the change of food af
fected her. "This past summer I found my
self In a very low state of health and much
emaciated. I got down to 93 pounds and
was worried, especially as I had to look
forwaid to my annual tussle with hay
fever la September and felt it would push
me even further down.
One day a friend told me she had been
Using Grape-Nuts Breakfast Food and that
he felt like a new person with greatly in
creased strength and vi;or. I grasped at
the straw and began the use of Grape
Nuts. The effect was really magical. In a
w-t-k I fIt toned up and In a month began
in earnest to gain iVsh and strength. By
September my weight had Increased to 1W
pounds and. much to my amazement. I dis
covered that whMi the hay fever sufferers
began to complain I had not r,:ie symptom
and escaped it altogether. Inasmuch as I
ad suffered for years from this miserable
dNeas and had made r.o change exct pt in
my food. I naturally concluded that my im
P. roved condition was r.it.-fj by the daily
Use of Grape-Nut and by observing the
unual laws of health." Name can bo given

NO CAISK lOH ALARM.
Attitude of Russin Tonanln Anglo-
Japanese Alliance Misrepresented.
ST. PETERSBURG, March 20. The Of
ficial Messenger, in publiehlng' to-day the
Franco-Russian declaration relative to the
Anglo-Japanese convention, accompanies it
with an official statement as follows: "The
imperial government received with the
most perfect calm the announcement of
the Anglo-Japanese agreement. The prin
ciples which have guided Russian policy
since the beginning of the disturbances
In China remain and will remain invaria
ble. Russia insists upon the maintenance
'of the independence and integrity of China,
a friendly, neighboring country, as well as
that of Korea. Russia desires the preser
vation of the status quo and general peace
in the far East by the construction of the
great Siberian Railroad, together with Its
branch line through Manchuria, towards a
port always ice free. Russia aids in the
extension in these regions of the commerce
and industry of the whole world. Would
it be to her interest to put forward ob
stacles at the present time? The Intention
expressed by Great Britain and Japan to
attain those same objects, which have in
variably been pursued by the Russian gov
ernment, can meet with nothing but sym
pathy In Russia, in spite of the comments
in certain political spheres and in some of
the foreign newspapers, which endeavor
to present In quite a different light the im
passive attitude of the Imperial govern
ment towards a diplomatic act which, in
its eye, does not change in any way the
general situation on the political horizon."
Xot Regarded na n Mennce.
NEW YORK, March 20. The reply of
Russia and France to the Anglo-Japanese
alliance is not regarded here as a menace,
says the London correspendent of the Trib
une. It Implies no more than that the
Franco-Russian alliance extends to the far
East. The only newspaper that sees dan
ger in it is the Daily Mall. The Morning
Post, on the other hand, says it Is a dec
laration which all the world may note with
equanimity. Not the least important point
of tho communication is the emphatic
manner in which France and Russia are
spoken of as allied.
BERLIN, March 20. The extension of the
Franco-Russian alliance to eastern Asia
has caused a great amount of comment
and conjecture in the circles here which
follow International politics. A few hours
before the text of the note'giving the sub
stance of the arrangement was given to the
press In Paris the text of tho declaration
was shown to Count Von Beulow, the Im
perial chancellor, by the Russian and
French ambassadors here, who together
called upon the chancellor for that purpose.
It does not appear that Germany was in
vited to participate in the Franco-Russian
declaration, and it Is absolutely certain
that she would not have had anything to
do with It, Germany's policy at present be
ing to keep entirely clear of entanglements
in China that might lead to acute contro
versies. Merely an Open Door Pledge.
WASHINGTON, March 20. The Franco
Russian note relative to China, which was
published this morning, was handed to
Secretary Hay yesterday by Ambassador
Cambon for France and Count Cassini for
Russia. The note Is regarded officially as
simply another pledge to maintain the
"open door" In China. On this basis it will
be accepted in a memorandum, indicted by
the President, when the note shall have
been duly considered. Both of the am
bassadors named were at the State Depart
ment to-day, but the note was only cas
ually referred to in the course of inter
views with Secretary Hay.

WASHINGTON, March 20.-Senator Al
drich. from the committee on finance, to
day presented to the Senate the report of
that committee on the bill repealing the
war revenue act, and thus made public
for the tirst time the amendments to the
bill suggested by the committee. There
are many changes in the language of the
bill, but except in one instance the in
tention of the House bill of repealing the
entire act is respected. The exception is
the provision in the existing law providing
for the taxation of "bucket shops," which
provision is left intact and the tax con
tinued in effect.
Senator Aldrich eaid before presenting
the report that he expected to call it up
within a day or two, and ask the Senate to
act. It is understood there will be no ef
fort on either side to amend the bill, and
it is not expected that there will be any
prolonged debate upon it.
The House provision authorizing the ap
pointment of ten additional Internal rev
enue agents In connection with the rebate
on tobacco on hand when the law shall go
into effect is eliminated, but the commis
sioner of internal revenue is authorized to
adopt such regulations as may be neces
sary to carry the provision into effect.
The entire section of the House bill re
lating to the collection of taxes on inher
itances between now and July, when
the provision will be repealed, Is rewritten.
The changes relate only to minor details
of the administration of tho law for the
next three months.
The committee also recommends the ad
dition of the following section: "That the
repeal of existing laws or modifications
thereof embraced in this act shall not af
fect any act done, or any right accruing
or accrued, or any suit or proceeding had
or commenced in any civil cause before the
said repeal or modifications; but all rights
and liabilities under said laws shall bei con
tinued and may be enforced in the same
manner as if said repeal or modifications
had not been made. Any offenses com
mitted and all penalties or forfeitures or
liabilities incurred prior to the passage of
this act under any statute embraced in
or changed, modified or repealed by this
act may be prosecuted or punished in the
same manner, and with the same effect
as if this act had not been passed."
In the contested election case of Wil
liam H. Horton vs. Ellis Butler from the
Twelfth Missouri district tho Republican
members of election committee No. 1 have
decided to recommend that the scat be
declared vacant. The decision to declare
the seat vacant followed exhaustive hear
ings by the committee. Members of tho
committee say this disclosed that the regis
try lists contained about H.OuO names which
could not bo located at tho places of resi
dence designated, nor were these names in
the last census returns nor in the city di
rectory of St. Louis. The committee found
that about 9.500 of these doubtful names
appeared in the voting lists, of which it
was estimated Butler received about 7,00'J
and Horton about 2.500. in view of these
facts the Republican members decided to
declare the seat vacant.
The persistent circulation of reports that
the State Department has made a demand
upon Turkey for reimbursement of the
money expended in the ransom of Miss
Stone is causing a good deal of annoyance
to the officials of that department. It con
be stated as a fact that the State Depart
ment has made no such demand upon
Turkey and consequently the Turkish gov
ernment has not flatly refused to pay. As
already stated, Mr. Lelshman some time
ago lodged caveats with the Turkish and
Bulgarian governments saving the right of
the United States government to prefer a
demand for reparation and reimbursement
In the Stone case when It was able to rix
the responsibility for the abduction. Up

somewhat curtail the original project,
which looked to a practical repetition of
the splendid and impressive ceremonies
connected with the dedication of the York
town monument twenty years ago. Still
a satisfactory beginning can be made and
the attendance of the descendants of
Rochambeau with a distinguished repre

The Treasury Department has called up
on the customs officers at San Francisco

foreign troops. The soldier claims to have
bought them from another soldier who
found them in an ash barrel.

The President sent to the Senate to-day
the correspondence growing out of the

residents of Colon, Colombia, when that
city was fired on by the insurgent Fedro

the polico both were withdrawn and the
American residents lost several hundred
thousand dollars' worth of property. The
State Department took the matter up, but

Another Ohio Law Killed.
COLUMBUS, O., March 20. The Supreme
Court, in an opinion involving the constitu
tionality of a law authorizing the city of
Toledo to issue bridge bonds, takes the
ground that all bond-Issue laws resting
upon the classification of cities, which are
purely local in their application, are special
legislation, and that they cannot be justified
except by an emergency. The decisions
of both tha Common Pleas and Circuit
Courts, which sustained tho Toledo law,
are reversed. Tho opinion of the Supreme
Court is regarded as sweeping In its Import
ance. It is believed that few of the laws
of local application which have been passed
by the Legislature now In session would
stand the test of the court as applied in the

LONDON, March 20. One of the liveliest
scenes witnessed in the House of Commons
since the palmiest days of the Irish Na
tionalists ended this afternoon with the
suspension of John Dillon.
During the discussion of the South Afric
an affairs the Liberal leader. Sir Henry
Campbell-Bannerman, vigorously protested
against the government's conduct in utter
ing "malignant slanders" in calling the Lib
erals "pro-Boers." These slanders, Sir
Henry said, were used for party purposes.
The government, which had been going
from blunder to blunder, claimed Immunity
from criticism; if this continued it would
follow "the precedent of the evil days of
the American war." The speaker proceeded
to give a bitter, detailed criticism of the
government's treatment of th Boers and
its miscalculations, declaring that the honor
and interests of the country were just as
dear to the Liberals as to the most super
cilious defender of the government's policy;
and the Liberals would continue to protest
in the name of the righteous and generous
traditions of the nation against the methods
of the government.
The colonial secretary, Mr. Chamberlain,
In the course of an equally incisive reply,
said he desired to deliberately accuse Sir
Henry Campbell-Bannerman of losing no
opportunity for slandering his countrymen,
the soldiers and the government. Conse
quently the "malignant slanders" had come
from the opposition side.
The speaker, Sir William Court Gulley,
here intervened and declared that the term
"malignant slander" was unparliamentary.
Both Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman and
Mr. Chamberlain thereupon withdrew the
words amid cheers.
Mr. Chamberlain, proceeding, referred to
the Boers who are fighting on tho British
side, when John Dillon (Irish Nationalist)
interjected, "They are traitors," on which
Mr. Chamberlain retorted, "The honorable
gentleman is a good judge of traitors."
A scene of great confusion ensued. When
order was partially restored Mr. Dillon de
manded a ruling on Mr. Chamberlain's
The speaker said: "An honorable member
spoke of soldiers serving under the British
liag as traitors. I deprecated the interrup
tion, and .1 deprecated the retort of the
Mr. Dillon then eald: "I will tell the

d d liar."
A dead silence followed this remark. Such
unparliamentary language seemed to stun
the House. The speaker Invited Mr. Dillon
to withdraw the expression, but the latter
said: "I will not withdraw."
"Then I must name you," said the
The government leader, A. J. Balfour,
then said: "I beg to move that Mr. Dillon
be suspended from service In the House."
Tho motion was carried by 24S to 4S votes.
Mr. Dillon i mmediately, by direction of
tho speaker, left the House, amid wild
Nationalist cheers, and Mr. Chamberlain re
sumed his speech.
Mr. Dillon's suspension, under the present
rules, cannot exceed a week. His offense
would have been much mor severely dealt
with had the new rules been in force.
The ejection of Mr. Dillon did not serve
to clear the atmosphere, and the remainder
of the debate was filled with personal al
lusions and unpleasant exchanges, the na

Mr. Brodrick, the secretary of state for
war, replied to Mr. Lloyd-George with a
long defense of the War Office.
Mr. Brodrick and Mr. Chamberlain, dur
ing the discussion in the House of Com
mons, showed themselves to be very hope
ful for tho position of affairs In South
Africa. Mr. Chamberlain estimated there
were still 9.000 fighting Boers in the held.
This optimism is rather offset by the fact
that the government has again telegraphed
Australia, inviting that commonwealth to
send 2,000 more men to South Africa.

PREPARING TO RETALIATE
GERMAN ARTICLES CONTAIXIXG DO
HACTC ACID TO DE DAR RED.
'Frankfurters' and Other Imported
Delicacies' May lie Kept
Out of This Country.
WASHINGTON, March 20. The De
partment of Agriculture will immedi
ately prepare a list of articles im
ported Into this country in which boracic
and other acids are supposed to exist. This
action Is the first step taken by the gov
ernment looking to retaliation for the Ger
man prohibition on the importation of
meats containing boracic acid. Secrttar
Wilson, in oral directions given this after-'
noon, called on Dr. Wiley, the chemist of
the department, to prepare such a list at
once with a view to barring out all such
products, through the co-operation of the
State Department. The directions as given
did not specifically refer to any one coun
try. Secretary Wilson this afternoon said:
"Boracic acid applications have not been
held by chemists generally to be injurious,
but If the European governments declare
them to be injurious and bar Importations
containing such applications this govern
ment will have to follow with similar ac
tion. An examination will be made into
those Importations in which boracic acid Is
known or believed to exist, and where it
is found such importation will be ex
cluded." Boracic acid is used almost exclusively in
butter and preserved meat Importations,
according to the Department of Agricul
ture. The directions to-day contemplate in
structions to United States consuls, wher
ever articles suspected of containing boracic
acid are offered for sale, to refuse the usual
invoices for such products. The procedure
to be followed is the issuance of regulations
by the Treasury Department, at the request
of the secretary of agriculture, showing the
necessity of such action and the transmis
sion of them to consular officers through
the State Department. The Department f
Agriculture shortly will Issue a reiort
which will give analyses and conclusions of
investigations regarding adulterations found
in products imirted into this country. It
shows that artificial coloring matter and
preservatives and ingredients have been
found to be added to foods brought into
this country, in sausages, for instance.
A dispatch from Berlin says: "Referring
to the dispatch received here from Washing
ton, in which it was said that meat packers
in the United States had petitioned the
State Department to protest against the
exclusion by Germany of meats prepared
with borax, the Vossische Zeitung remarks
that the German government knew what it
was doing when it forbade the introduction
of meat thus prepared, and that hence any
protest from Washington would be without

CHICAGO. March 20.-Chicago meat

ignore tho German market completely.
This attitude is due to the announcement
that after Oct. 1 no meat preserved with
borax and boracic add will be admitted to
Germany under any consideration. The
leading packers say that the meat trade
with Germany Is not considerable, and
that the greater part of the American
trade with Germany In the packers' line
Is confined to lard.
