" V CENTRAL OREGON
Contract for Construction of Colum
- bia Southern to Be Let This
i!8! PORTLAND, Or., March ,8. It la
I understood that the contract for the
construction of the Columbia Southern
railroad from Shanlko to Bend, Or., will
ibe let early this month, and that
active construction on the extension
.will commence within the next month
and be pushed with all speed possible
until the road is completed.
In an effort to avoid trouble from
Bpeculatora who would obtain property
I along the rlffht-of-way for the purpose
of mulcting the company, the exact
route has been kept a close secret. It
haa been definitely decided upon, never
theless, and all rights-of-way. It Is said,
have been secured. It Is understood
that orders for rails have already been
placed in the East and will be on hand
by the time sufllclont grading has been
done for track-laying to begin
The completion of this road will mark
the greatest step In the development of
Oregon that has taken Dlace since the
completion of the trans-continental
r railroads, as It will open up thousands
of square miles of territory In Central
Oregon, which on account of Its Inac
fJ cessiblllty has hitherto been of little

HlK the lines that were run by Moore, and
HUI follows a fairly direct course down the

JAPAN MAKES REPLY TO
MISSTATEMENTS BY RUSSIA
In Order to Set Itself Right Before the World and
the Powers, the Japanese Government Issues a
Statement Denying Seriatim Charges of Alleged
Violation of International Law.
WASHINGTON, March S The Jap
anese Minister is authorized by his
Government to give to the press the
following statement received on the -4th
"The imperial Japanese Government
Is given to understand that the Russian
Government has recently addressed a
note to the powers In which the Gov
ernment of Japan is charged with hav
ing committed certain acts In Korea
which are considered by Russia to be In
violation of International law and all
future orders and declarations by the
Korean Government are declared on
that account to be Invalid.
"The Imperial Government docs not
find it 'necessary in the present Instance
to concern itself in any way with tho
views, opinions or declarations of the
Imperial Russian Government, but it
believes it to be its right and duty to
correct misstatement of fact which, If
permitted to remain uncontradicted,
might give rise to incorrect inferences
and conclusions on the part of the neu
"Accordingly the Government of Ja
pan makes the following statement re
garding the five acts which in the note
are declared to be fully proved and
STATE OF WAR EXISTED.
"First It Is charged under this head
ing that 'before the opening of hostili
ties against Russia, Japan landed
troops in the Independent empire of
Korea, which had declared Its neutral
ity.' "The imperial Government ' admits
that Japanese troops landed in Korea
before the declaration of war was is
sued, but not before a state of war act
ually existed between Japan and Rus
sia. Tho maintenance of the Independ
ence and territorial Integrity of Korea
Is one of the objects of the war and the
dispatch of troops to the menaced ter
ritory was a matter of right and neces
sity which had the consent of the Ko
rean Government. The imperial Gov
ernment drew a sharp distinction be
tween the landing of Japanese troops
in Korpa under the actual circum
stances of the case with the sending of
a large body of Russian tropps to Man
churia without the consent of China, as
was done by Russia while peaceful ne
gotiations were still in progress.
"Second Under this heading It is al
leged that Japan, with a division of the
Japanese, attempted a sudden attack
on the 8th lnst., that Is, three days be
fore the declaration of war, on two Rus
sian warships which were In the neu
tral port of Chemulpo and whose com
manders had not been notified of the
rupture of relations, as the Japanese
maliciously stopped the delivery of Rus
sian telegrams by the Danish cable and
destroyed the Korean Government's tel
"The Imperial Government declares
that the allegations under this heading
are untrue. The imperial Government
did not stop the delivery of Russian
telegrams by the Danish cable, neither
are all In full blast, all the men have
employment and business generalb Is
The work of clearing the ground for
the new shops and roundhouse of the
Oregon Short Line railroad Jn this city
will be begun In a few daye, when con
struction will be pushed as rapidly as
possible. The beginning of work on the
new passenger depot will very soon fol

office Is going to be moved. C. A.

that the National Bank of the Republic
would extend its premises to the offices
now occupied by the Chicago & North

A Bad Year for the Ice Man.
NEW YORK, March 8. At a meeting
of tho dlrectore of the American Ice
company in Jersey City the financial
reports presented showed a deficit of
$8492 for the year ended December 31.
1903, against a deficit of 51C2.493 for the

ment's telegraphic communication.
"Regarding the alleged sudden attack
on the 8th of February on two Russian
men-of-war In the port of Chemulpo, It
Is only necessary to say that a state of
war existed and that Korea, having
given her consent to the landing of
Japanese troops at Chemulpo, the har
bor of Chemulpo thereby ceased to be
neutral, at least as between the bellig
erents. TAKING OF WAR PRIZES.
"Third It is charged under this head
ing that 'In spite of existing Interna
tional laws shortly before the opening
of hostilities Japan captured as prizes
of war the Russian merchantmen which
were In the neutral ports of Korea '
"The imperial Government has estab
lished the prize court with full author
ity to pronounce finally on the question
of the legality of the seizures of mer
chant vessels. Accordingly it would be
manifestly out of place for the Imperial
Government to make any statement re
garding the assertion under this head
ing. "Fourth It Is asserted under this
number that Japan declared to the Em
peror of Korea, through the Japanese
Minister at Seoul, that Korea would be
henceforth under Japanese administra
tion and warnod his Majesty that in tho
case of non-compllanco Japanese troops
would occupy the palace.
"The Imperial Government declares
the charge under this number to be ab
solutely and wholly without foundation
"Fifth Under this heading it is
charged that the Japanese Government
forwarded a summons, through the
French Minister, to the Russian repre
sentative at the court of the Emperor of
Korea to leave the country with the
staff of tho Russian legation and con
sulate.' "The Imperial Government denies the
accuracy of this statement. No demand
either direct or indirect was addressed
by the Japanese Government asking
the Russian Minister to retire from
"The French Charge d'Affalres called
on the Japanese Minister at Seoul and
Informed him verbally, as he did after
ward in writing, that it was the desire
of the Russian Minister to leave Korea,
and asked the opinion of the Japanese
Minister with reference to the matter.
The Japanese Minister replied that if
the Russian Minister would withdraw
In a peaceful manner, taking with him
his staff and legation guard, he would
be fully protected by Japanese troops.
He did so -withdraw of his own free
will on the 12th of February and an es
cort of Japanese soldiers was furnished
him as far as Chemulpo. In this con
nection It may be remarked that the
Russian Consul at Fusan remained at
his post as late as February 28th. It Is
reported that he was compelled to stay
that long In the absence of Instructions
which the Russian Minister apparently
did not care to give him before his own
departure. When it was made known
that necessary instructions had at last
reached the Russian Consul and that
ho desired to leave Fusan as soon as
possible the Japanese Consul at the
same port offered him every facility for
his departure and his passago to Shang
hai through Japan to the latter."

To ascertain exactly
what your sldraess COMES FR.OM.
One day you suspect it's "from something I've eaten."
Next day perhaps "It's the change in the weather."
Next day it's "I have o'erworkqd a bit,"
Again it's "because I can't sleep."
You occasionally have a suspicion that coffee causes the troubles and some
times really believe you should stop coffee and see if It really does what some
people claim. But, the breakfast comes on and the coffee is there, and "It's bo
hard to give It up."
"If I really thought coffee was hurting me I would quit It, because I value
health above everything, but as long as there's a doubt I keep on using coffee
and yet staring me in the face is the fact that I have
Taken medicines of raairy kisds.

"Tried various other methods to
get well and yet"
"Here 1 Am"
"Ailing right along and getting slowly a little worse each month."
"Something must be done for there is but one end to the road I am now
"Oh rats about the coffee, It don't hurt me, why I've drank It for twenty
"Experiment to learn the exact truth about lt7"
"Why of course I would really like to know definitely and surely all about
it for I want to find the demon that keeps me ill, prevents my enjoyment of
health and strength and keeps me from success In business, because I am half
sick all the time."
"How's that? Quit coffee ten days?"
"Pretty hard to do neighbor."
"Easy when Postum is served In Its place, why?"
Postum coffee when properly brewed (and that's easy) has the deep seal
brown of fine gov't Java which changes to a rich golden brown when cream Is
added. It does not possess the strong acrid taste of Rio Coffee but has the mild,
fine crisp flavor of the higher grades of Java and a fragranco all Its own. With
many cultivated people it ranks in flavor above ordinary coffee.
So, it's easy to shift from ordinary coffee to Postum and make the ten-day
test to see If you can locate the thing that is eating away your life.
