Russians Will Pursue Hit inr
It llSt II IttlltIK I.OSf.
"Kussin will puisne the
the Inr east to the bitter end
is, until Russia has conquered."
These words aie the keynote of
an emphatic statement made by
Count Cnssini, the Russian uinhas
sador lo a Washington (I). C.) .Star
reporter. .Several times recently
the ambassador has categorically
denied the possibility of any inter
vention in the war, but the recur
rence of rumors that the powets
contemplated mediation hns caused
the ambassador to reiterate on be
half of his government its position
regarding intervention or mediation
of any kind.
"I deem it my duty," said he,
"to reiterate what I have so often
said, that Russia will not suspend
in any case her military operations
in the far east. All rumors and re
ports regarding the possible success
of the direct overtures for peace,
which Japan is said to have made
to Russia, and regarding the media
tion of the powers, are, in my opin
ion, slatted for the purpose of con
vincing the public that the end of
the war is close at hand. In this
way it is hoped that the public may
be led to believe that Japanese loans
offer attractive investments.
"Russia can no more admit of in
terference than Great Britain could
in the Transvaal or than could the
United States in her war with
Spain. Where the prestige of a
country is at stake, all other con
siderations are and must be put
aside. Some people may think
that financial difficulties will in
fluence Russia to cud hostilities.
Such an opinion is based on the
false assumption of Russia's finan
cial resources. There is no doubt
whatever that Russia, whose annual
income exceeds one milliard dol
lars, cannot be influenced in her at
titude toward the outcome of the
war by the amount of war expendi
tures. It is not altogether out of
the question that Russia, who did
not expect war, should iu the mo
ment when she has mobilized her
army and is sending corps after
corps in fighting readiness to the
far east, suddenly call a halt on
hostilities, particularly after she
has for nearly a year, without any
difficulty or recourse to extraordi
nary measures, been able to carry
the extra expense?
"It is not within my scope to
comment upon the new Japanese
loan. That is an affair for the
bankers and for the public who aie
able to decide what advantages or
disadvantages the investment offers.
But there can be no necessity for
commenting upon Russia's credit.
Any one acquainted with the Paris
exchange is able to convince him
self of the solidity ol Russia's

The Whlupcr Court,
At Itochford, Kssex, Knglnnd, the
whisper court Is a strange observance
held annually under the superintend
ence of the steward of the manor. The
business of the court Is carried out at
midnight hi the open air. The absence
of a tenant is punishable by a line of
double his rent for each hour he falls
to be iu attendance. No artificial light,
except a firebrand, Is permitted, and
the proceedings arc recorded by means
of one of the embers of the brand. The
roll of fourteen tenants Is then called
over and answered to In a whisper, and
then they kneel down and swear al
legiance. Very many years ago the
lord of the manor, after an absence
from his estate, was returning home
by night. On the way he accidentally
heard some of his discontented ten
antry plotting his assassination. Thus
warned, he returned homo by nn unex
pected route. Then ho ordered that
each year his tenants should nssemble
at the same time to do him homage
around n post which ho erected ou the
spot where the plotters met.

In an address to negro qitizens
delivered at Birmingham, Ala.,
Booker Washington said:
"Not a few have predicted that
on account of the recent election
many members of our race lose
their heads; would become unduly
pompous, self assertive and gener
ally offensive. With all the earn
estness that I can command, I want
to urge our people iu every part of
the country to disappoint those who
have made such predictions by lead
ing a life of increased usefulness,
soberness and simplicity, remem
bering, as I have often exhorted
before, that in the long run it is to
the certain and fundamental ideas
of growth in property, intelligence
and high Christian character, to
gether witli the cultivation of
friendly relations with our neigh
bors of all races, that we must look
for our ultimate success.
"The masses of our people are to
dwell for all time here in the south,
nnd here it is that our destiny must
be worked out, nnd we can only
succeed when we have the confi
