TUESDAY. AUGUST '?!<>. lsflR.
Till-: RUSSS1AN PROPOSITION.
The - zar's proposition for an inter?
national conference looking to tlie dis
arming ot tin- nations of lie- world de?
serves lie- mos: serious consideratiot
of He- statesmen and diplomats of tie
powers. While Ihe assembling ol
such a body and He discussion of tie
question's involved may not result in
tin- accomplishment of the bonelicoii!
end so earnestly s.-t forth by Uf Kits
sian foreign minister, no harm couli
con.- from such a gallo ring ami sine,
the cost would' not be oneroui
upon any ..! ihe go vornineuts in
Volved.it would undoubtedly ba Uli
part of wisdom to haw ihe conference
No nation would be bound to abide b.
the conclusions reached by th.ifer
ees unless common sense and prudenc
'suggested such a course.
he :reticnlly, im intelligent person
would deny the desirability of universal
peace. Whenever the dogs of war air
turned loose some one is hound t . pay J
for the devastation and destruction
that follow in the bloody wake of war?
fare, and th- world is poorer by ju-i
that much. Now, whether or i.he
world lias reached such a stage of per?
fection as to make universal ponce
possible is another question. If We may
judge fr,mi tl.x perlen?.t the
United Stales government in its deal?
ing- with Spain lie- answer would he
in the negative.
As a n,.liter of fact the attitude of the
Russian government for the past few
months seems to furnish a powerful ar?
gument against the theory advanced by j
He- Czar. Instead of pursuing a coins.- :
of miidness and justice to which no |
nation coal.! object Russia has been
taking on a more ami more aggressive
altitude until th.- friendship of England
has been threatened and Alexander's j
government ',as laid itself open to the
suspicion ??! desiring to provoke a war
which would undoubtedly be the m si
disaslroiis in the history of the world.
It is difficult to imagine thai such a
proposition could be mad. with alt,
rinr motives in view, bin the action i
Russia is by in. no-ans consistent wit
i:s recently discovered policy of wor!
ll is lo he

so that tin- insufferable braggart rn:i>
be retired to that side ..r the w oh
where his peculiar talents will b- Hp
predated. Of course, it would be we:
io settle the affairs in Cuba al the ear
liest possible moment, so that tie- suf?
fering reconcentrados may In- aid' I So
far as Blanco is < oneorned, he i< simply
an Incident, and. considering the harni
lessrtes.s of his vaporlngs, it seems si ly
for any .n.-.to pay attention to them.
Now that hostilities have really
ceased the blatant politician emerges
Xrom his ttonife proof long enoiiKh
to tell his loyal adherents what will |
Happen to the country if his man Is not
elected to the office to which he aspires.
No one should object to Coxey's prop?

Well we hope it Is. but we Know
that summer and hot weather will be
with us for some time to come and if
you have not already availed yourself j
of the chance to get a good Detroit
Jewel Oas Range you have missed one
or your best friends and more, you'
have missed the comfort that can only
be had from the use of gas fuel, which
brings delight and happiness wherever
it is in use. Talk is cheap you may
say and a gas man must "gas," and
who can blame him. He knows a good
thing?lte wants to push it along, and
he is willing that his friends should
share in the procession. Generous soul
that he is, he gives his advice free. It
Is no trouble to sing the praises of gas
for fuel and as for light, its beauty
shines so he who runs may be impress?
ed. Gas for fuel at $1.00 is the cheapest
fuel if it is economically used. Are
you economical ? You are prudent ana
wise. Therefore get a gas range. We
will tell you something next week
about heating that will surprise you.
