Hope Born of Sentiment Fa
vors Russia, and France
Will Give Muscovite Cause
: All Possible Support.
Paris, Feb. 13. One of the moat no
table features of the first week of tho
war has been the steady increase of
sentiment here favorable to Giving Rus
sia every possible moral and sympa
At thc outset the French officials and
public genorally maintained that thc
interests of France demanded that she
keep clear of the possibility of any
war entanglements growing out of tho
Franco-Russian alliance. This led
some nowspapers to assert that France
was placing self-interest beforo duly
and deserting her best friend in tho
hour of greatest need,
j A gradual reaction has occurred, un
I til today official and public feeling run3
ptrongly in favor of strengthening Rus
sia In every way short oi actual par
ticipation in thc Avar.
. It wns thought that the large -Dreyfus
element would antagonize Russia,
owing to the lattcr's attitude toward
the Jews, but on the contrary, Joseph
Rclnnch, the friend and biographer of
Dreyfus, has published a letter declar
ing that the honor and Interest of
France command her to affirm her
sympathy Tor Russia and to loyally
hold up the alliance.
However, French feeling, which is
usually demonstrative, has not shown
anv wild enthusiasm in. behalf of Rus
i aia This is in rather marked contrast
with Hie uproarious mnnifestationu at
the lime of the Czar's visit to Paris
and other recent events.
Two poular subscriptions have been
opened for the wounded, one by the
Russo-Chlnese bank and the other by
French newspaper men. The Russian
Embassador. M. Nelidoff, head of tho
former, with a subscription of $100.
JUunv individuals are showing porsonal
sympathy and nre offering their ser

BLOWS OF JAPAN
Subjects of Czar Lashed Into Fury
by News of Defeat Will Fight
-to the Bitter End.
St.. Petersburg. Feb. 13. For the first
time since the beginning of hostilities
In thc far East the Government tonight
gave thc Russian newspapers permis
sion to publish the accounts received
from abroad of the engagement off Che
mulpo, In which the warships Variag
and Korlelz were destroyed.
The war fever which has been aroused
here, and apparently all over the em
pire, or at least all over European Rus
sia, in a single week ls truly remark
able. Such patriotic demonstrations aD have
been witnessed in St. .Petersburg since
hostilities began haVe been all the more
astonishing because of the public In
difference during thc period, of negotia
tion and almost up to t;h& hour when
Japan strnclc the first. blb"w at Port Ar
thur. But now, like a Hash, tho whole em
pire seernff to have been lashed Into fury
by defeat and, like a bear when it is
wpunded and angry. It Is prepared to
fight to the bitter end. The dreamy
Russian character has been stirred to
depths of resentment which it will be
difficult to understand abroad.
. The demonstrations here have been al
most continuous for three days, and
they have been also entirely sponta
neous. Some of them were extraordi
nary in character.
Today the schoolboys and students of
the city, numbering thousands,
marched bareheaded for hours up and
down the Nevsky prospect, bearing
flags, shouting and singing patriotic
airs They were followed by an enor
I BERLIN I
Phlegmatic Gzrmany, While
Posing in the Role of a Neu
tralite, Hopis For Russian
Success in the Conflict.
Berlin. Feb. 13. Thc position of the
German Government respecting thc
Rusuo-Japanese war is well defined. It
la exact neutrality In act, but in senti
ment it is sympathetic toward Russian
predominance in China rather than Jap
anese predominance there.
Thc common talk in ministerial quar
ters is that this is not a Blmple con
test for territory In Korea or Manchu
ria, but ra!ther a combat of civilization
and of race Ideals, and if one must
choose between the white and thc yel
low, Germany stands by the white,
Tho Government here is conscious
that Russia haa not acted wisely and
that Japan haa sufficient reasons for
making war, and especially that after
the Chlno-Japaneae war In 1804 Japan
was advlsdd to give up Port Arthur and
that Russia took possession of this
place. Germany recognizes also that
olhor powers hae cause for complaint
In that Russia did not keep her prom
ise to evacuate Manchuria, and that
among these powers- H Germany, which
holds opinions identical with those of
the United States concerning the "open
door.'- The Foreign office has this
week expressed this view to the State
department at Washington, but, be
yond these considerations, there are. ac
cording to u very high German official,
greater consideratl6ns of statesmanship
which prompt Germany to withhold Its
sympathy. from Japan and to hope that
Russia will not be vanquished.
Japanese victory ls believed by this
official to mean that Japanese influence
would he supreme In China, ami that
the cry would go up, "Asia for the
Asiatics." lie believes also that, ter
ritorially and economically. Great Bri
tain, Germany and the United' States
would, in the event' of Japan's winning,
be expelled from the East. In Ger
many there is foreseen a state of af
fairs when Japan shall have trained
several million Chinese as soldiers and
sailors and Inspired them as Gordon's
"ever victorious" army was Inspired by
successful and thoughtful leadership.
The 'yellow peril" is a conviction in
Germany, and German; readily accept
tlje view of Russia that to give Japan
equal rights to enter and settle Man
churia and to cross tho three thousand
miles or frontier separating China from
Russia might turn Western civilization
back up.ou the .Ural mountains.

to other localities where tho power can
be utilized for pumping water from
deep wells for Irrigation and domestic
Thus the water that is Impounded In
