the matter of recommending a site for
a Federal Building at Honolulu.

of "Soda Water" for table use. "Soda Water (more properly
called Carbonated Water) whether manufactured or natural Is a
POWERFUL AID TO DIGESTION by stimulating the stomach
and alio probably aiding to dissolve the mineral Ingredients of the
food. It Is very appetizing, it corrects acidity In the stomach,

able to assist the Delegate In looking

in tovrn from Senators and officials In
Washington asking that Mr. I'ratt bo

stems to have been formed nntong tho
friends of Hawaii nl Washington that
Mr. I'ratt would greatly strengthen

tho enormous responsibility cast upon

unnamed Russian statesman, "whoso
name," he says, "were I at liberty to
rrveal It, would cause bis words to clr
culatu with lightning-like rapidity
around tho world," as saying:
It Is posslblo tho war may end
sooner than most people. Imagine. Med
iation Is ns Impossible as Intervention.
Itushla cannot permit any Interference,
whether it emanates from friend or
neighbor. I cannot describe tho con
clusion of peace as an Impending event,
but ai a contingency which may be
realized much sooner than pcoplo sup
pose. Mediation will not achieve It,
but solely tho conviction that the cam
palgn must end as the battlo of l.lno
ung ended. In costly sacrifices on both
tides and decisive ndvuntage to neither,
Ittissla, single handed, can annihilate
Japan If sho puts forth all her strength
and draws upon all her resources. That
can be ascertained as any mathematical
truth, but the effort would exhaust the
nation without benefitting it, and Ilus
eIu'h ronsemtent temporary weaknosi
would operate as a temptation to enter
prising states to make their voices
heard. It wo attempt, not merely to
defeat but to suppress Japan, other
states interested in the Far Kast will
vigorously ttrgo their right to bo
heard, and Russia, weakened by her
losses, financial and military, nt the
long campaign, would find It hard to
disallow their claims."
Tho Tolegroph's Informant then
talks of the advisability of peaco with
out waiting for tho outcomo of years
of disastrous war, and says:
"l'eaco eighteen or twenty months
hence, with Japan embittered, but not
utterly defeated, would bo only an
armed truce that would be followed by
a more sanguinary campaign a few
j cars heme. Alternative) may be
formulated thus; Either the ruin of
Japan, purchased by ruinous sacrifices,
or a treaty of cordial friendship, to be
followed In fullness of time by that
offensive and defensive alliance which
for years has constituted the Ideal of
the Japancso Government, Ret ween
the roads leading to theso two goals

problem is now being attentively stud

follow each other at very short Inter
vals, and ns data for round opinion Is
abundant, It Is poislblc, and perhaps
probable that, peace will bo arranged
jooner than most people Imagine."

public man In Japan likely to entertain
a similar view, the Informant replied
