With the general public the news was
received with the greatest satisfaction
and admiration for Japan's "sacrifices

to whom they give the fullest credit

Both papers and people were so
astounded at the outcome of the confer

Much interesting history behind the
conference remains to be written.
No one yet knows exactly what con
siderations induced the Tokio govern
ment to waive all demands for cash.
While it is known that President
Roosevelt was continuing his labors to
the last, it is not possible to make any
definite statement as tp whether at the
end he advised Japan to forego entire
ly punitive demands. I can be stated,
however, on the authority of the Jap
anese mission, that he was originally
of the opinion that Japan should not
demand indemnity, and it is, therefore,
possible that he may have urged this
view at Tokio when he found that
Russia was obdurate. I his commu
nication to Emperor Nicholas, thru
Ambassador Meyer, last week, while
the Japanese were insisting on direct
remuneration for the cost of the war,rand,
it is known that he urged on the czar
the expediency of accepting a compro
mise by which the redemption price of
the north half of Sagahlien should be
determined by some sort of impartial
board of commission.

Washington, Aug. 30.One of the
problems in connection with the strug
gle between Japan and Russia is how
American interests will be affected.
The United States has little or noth
ing to expect from Russia in the far
east. With Japan conditions are en
tirely different. The statement has
been made repeatedly since the Rus
sian-Japanese war began that in the
event of Japan's victory oyer Russia
Japan would seek to establish a posi
tion in the far east similar to that oc
cupied by the United States in the
western hemisphere. I other words,
Japan is ambitious to establish what
may appropriately be termed "a Jap
anese Monroe doctrine" in the far east.
Lieutenant General Nelson A. Miles
is responsible for the first suggestion
as to Japan's intentions in that "direc
tion. Several months ago General
Miles, who had iust returned from
Japan, came to Washington. While
awaiting an audience with Secretary
Taft, General Miles talked about his
trip to Japan. The general, after com
mending in the highest terms Japan's
success as a war power, added that
Japan is ambitious to become a com
mercial power in the far east.
The general ~we3xt on to say tliat,
while in Japan, he dined with the for
mer Japanese minister to the United
States. The statement was made that
Japan was combatting Russia, not to
become a world power in war, but for
"Commercial' 'supremacy in the far east.
The former Japanese minister told Gen
eral Miles of the remarkable commer
cial activity thruout Japan, and add
ed that a wider market for its prod
ucts was necessary for the continually
increasing commercial advancement of
Japan needs more territory for its
expansion policy, and General Miles
ventured the piediction that eventually
Japan will acquire control of the Phil
ippine islands from the United States.
In support of that theory General Miles
says he stopped at Manila during his
trip and learned that the Japanese are
swannlng into the Philippines by the
thousands, "for they do not come under

At Voss was born Holberg, the poet
whose name is one of the greatest in
modern Danish literature. The house
where he lived in 1702 is still standing
and the fir tree he planted in front i
it, now a fine, lusty tree, was pointed
out to us by the landlord of the hotel.
Grieg Lives at Bergen.
Bergen's most famous living citizen
is Edward Grieg, the composer who has
immortalized the wierd peasant music
of Norway and at the same time has
won undpng fame for himself. Grieg
is now 62 years old and lives a retired
life in his villa at Hop a suburb
reached by ten minutes' ride on the
railroad.- This villa he has named
"Troldhong," or Hill of the GorMns,
and here he finds that Tjuiet and solitude
his soul seems to crave. To very few
visitors is his door open, as the master
hates notoriety and avoids public no
tice as much as possible. On. rare oc
casions he leads- the orchestra She
founded in Bergen and once i^ a while
he makes a pilgrimage to Leipzig,
where he studied in his youth.t Bu his
health, always precarious, is now more
delicate than ever and more and more
does he withdraw from the worjd to the
companionship of his relatives ^n
friends and the consolations of his art*
W came armed, however, with the
ETreetings of His old friend and eolalor
er, Bjornstjerne Bprnson, 'some of
whose poems he has set to music, and
that proved on open sesame to the cot
tage among the beech trees at Hop
Another circumstance favored us
There was to have been a familv party
at a point some distance away, but the
composer had had a bad nieht and was
forced to give up all idea of attending.
But he consented to receive us two
Americans for a brief visit.
Grieg is a small man and upon his
shrunken frame suffering has laid a
heavy hand. is said to be sen
sitive about his wasted physique and
the twist that years Qf battle with pul
monar weakness have given his body.
But the magnificent head that sur
it, the poet's dreamy eyes, the
noble forehead, the bulging brows that
betoken the deeply emotional tempera
ment of the creative musicianthese
quickly arrest the attention and im
press the imagination.

Cooper Preparations to Be Dis
tributed Throughout the
A new departure in connection with
the introduction of the celebrated Coo
per Remedies in Minneapolis is to be
made by Voegeli Bros,, commencing on
Thursday of this week, and continuing
for the remainder of Mr. Cooper's stay
in this city.
This consists of a general distribu
tion of the medicines throughout the
state, and has been made necessary by
the tremendous mail received each day
by Mr. Cooper during the past week.
Thousands of letters have been pour
ing in with requests by people living
outside of the city for some of the
preparations that have accomplished
such marvels in two weeks' time in
To meet this demand Mr. Cooper de
cided on Tuesday "to establish a mail
order department. This department will
be in charge of the Voegeli Bros. Drug
Co. and will commence operations on
In speaking of the matter, Mr. Coo
per said: "As a rule I do not attempt
to take care of the demand for my
preparations outside of whatever city
I may be In. as this work is done from
my home office at "Dayton, Ohio but
Minneapolis is so far west and the de
mand throughout Minnesota has been
so large'that I have decided to have it
supplied from this city.
''Thirf will not necessitate a long de
layin supplying oirfc-of town people-with
the remedies, as would be the case if
they were referred to Dayton, Ohio,
''Commencing Wednesday, Voegeli
Bros, will ship express $3 worth or
more of either the New Discovery or
the Quick Relief to any point outside
of the city limits, upon receipt of the
Voegeli Bros, confirmed Mr. Coop*
er's statement when seen about the
matter. Mr. Henry Voegeli said: "We
have organized a special mail order
department to look after these orders,
and expect to make shipments within
twelve nours after receipt of an order,
although this may be impossible, as we
expect a tremendous demand from out
of town, iudging from the immense
mail now pouring in from every direc
Orders should be addressed to Coop
er Mail Order Department, care Voe
geli Bros. N order for less than $3
can filled, as we could not possibiy
ijB$p up with the demand should we
aefld less at a time."
The sale of the Cooper Remedies in
this city is increasing each day and
has now reached such large propor
tion as to threaten the $30,000 record
