upon the f act,-so far as known, the two

Insurmountable as ever.
NEXT MOVE UP TO JAPS.
The real struggle is only postponed.
The main problems are no nearer solu
tion than when the plenipotentiaries
met The principal reason for opti
mism lies in the fact that, confronted
.with the absolufe refusal of the Rus
sian reply to admit the discussion of
either indemnity or the cession of the
island bf Sokhalin, the Japanese pro
posed to take up the consideration of
the conditions seriatim. From this it

buckshot and the heart was found on
the ground about a foot from the body

RAISKS "YELLOW PERIL" CRY.
The debate, iii Saturday's conference
over the first condition-the recogni
tion of Japan's "preponderating influ
ence" over Korea, involving her right
io control. the administration of the
hermit kingdom, use the littoral for
stragetic purposes, etc.,^-was of a re
markable character. Indeed the-posi
tion taken by Mr. Witte was sensa
tional in the extreme. His atl'tude re
veals plainly the Russian tactics. They
propose to raise before ihe world tue
spectre of the "yellow peril." Russia
claims that Japan's present purpose
is to get a foothold on the Asiatic con
tinent from which to extend her influ
ence and dominion.
Mr. Witte made no objection, but he
declared that the tfords "preponderat
ing influence" did not adequately de
scribe what Japan proposed to do, and
he insisted that the language used
should show Japan's true purpose
which he contended was to make a Jap
anese province of Korea. ;

As a whole the terms are regarded

In addition to the two principal condi

Mr. Witte's instructions? those relating
to the limiting of Russia's naval power
in. the- far east and the granting of
fishing rights upon the Russian lit
toral are considered particularly of
fensive to the amour propro of their
country, and of such a humiliating
character as to be inadmissible.

ell. Tii? sti-?ets" along the route from
the station to the Susquehanna river,
where the speakers' stand was erected,
were lined with a solid mass of people.
Many of them had been standing at
favorite places for hours. The Presi
dent's reception as he was rapidly driv
en over the route was a tremendous
one. The Prosidenj; appeared to be ex
tremely pleased at the demonstration
and kept bowing to the right and left,
Tho crowd at the speakers' stand was
so noisy that it took several minutes to
quiet the enthusiasm and permit the
exercise to begin. Those who spoke
were President Roosevelt, Cardinal
Gibbons, President Mitchell, Mayor
Kirkdall and Father Curran.
John Mitchell, in introducing the
President, made a long defence of trade
unionism. The President then'spoke as
I am particularly .glad to speak to
this audience of miner's ?iid their wives
and children ,and especially to speak
under the auspices of this great tem
perance society. In our country the
happiness of al Ithe rest Of our people
depends most of all upon the welfare ?
o fthe wage-worker and the welfare of
the farmer. If we can secure the wel
fare of these two classes we can be
reasonably certain that the community
as a whole will prosper. And we must
never forget that the chief factor in
securing the welfare alike of wage
worker and of farmer, as of everybody
else, must bc the man himself.
The only effective way to help any
body is to help him help, himself. There
are exceptional times when, any one of
us needs outside help, and then it
should be given freely; but normally
each one of us must depend upon his
own exertions for his own success.
Something can be done by wise legisla
tion and by wise and honest adminis^
tratioh of the laws; ?tat^is^ something.

THE DRUNKARD'S FAMILY.
For^the drunkard, for the man who
loses Iiis job because he cannot control
or will not control his desire for li" or
and for vicious pleasure, we har a
feeling Of anger and contempt mix .J
with our pfty; but for his unfortunate
wife and little- ones we feel only pity,
and that of the deepest and tenderst
Everything possible should be done
to encourage the growth of that spirit
of self-respect, self-restraint, self-re
liance, which, if it only grows enough,
is certain to make all those in whom it
shows itself move steadily upward to
ward the highest standard of American
citizenship. It is a proud and respon
sible privilege to be citizens of this
great self-governing nation; and each
of us needs to keep steadily before his
jyes the fact that he .is wholly unfit to
take part in the .work of governing
others unless he can first govern him
self. He must stand up manfully for
nfs own .rights; he must respect the
rightsx)f others; he must obey the law,
and he must try to live up to those
,-ules of righteousness which are above
and behind all laws.
This applies just as much to the man
af great, wealth as to the mau of small
means; to the capitalist as to the wage
worker. And as one practical point,
let mc urge that in th eevent of any
iificulty, especially if it is what is
known as a labor trouble, both sides
should show themselves willing to
meet, willing to consult, and anxious
?ach to treat thc other reasonably and
[airly, each to look at the other's side
sf the case and to do the other justice,
[f only this course could be generally
followed; the chance of industrial dis
ister would be minimized.

The effectiveness of the district head

sponsible for a large number of the nev/
cases which have been reported during
the last few days, and as the efficiency
of that force increases, an increase in
the number of cases daily can be ex

report cases, that are discovered are
given an opportunity to correct their

killed on the passenger train were all

Two Coaches Telescoped.
The high speed of the passenger
train threw its locomotive and first
three coaches over on the engine of
the freight train, telescoping the
smoker and the car following. Tue for
ward cars of the freight train were
splintered to fragments.
Of the passengers in the smoker,
none escaped injury. Fortunately there
was no fire, but the heavy timbers of
the wrecked cars pinned down many
and prevented them from getting out
until assistance arrived.
As soon as possible after the wreck
occurred doctors were sent on a spe
cial train to the scene from Lorain.
The injured were hurried to Lorain
and placed in the hospital there. The
dead were convoyed to the morgue at

STAMPS AS WALL PAPER.
Philadelphia Girl Has Unique Decora*
tion for "Den."
For more than fourteen years, or, to
be exact, since March 26, 1891, Miss
Sadie Disston of Keystone street has'
arduously collected canceled postage
stamps, with the purpose of covering
the walls of her "den." At last the'
task has been completed and the roomi
presents an appearance resembling
the mosaic tapestry of olden times.
The room is 10x15 feet. The paper
was made into panels 28 inches wide/'
on white linen, which were then?
placed together by a narrow walnut
molding. The stamps were accumu
lated so quickly that by the end of the
first year two panels were finished,
the first containing 6,004 stamps. The
ground of the panel design is made up
of English penny stamps. By Juh
- After Miss Disston found that there
would not be. any difficulty in getting
the required number of stamps, hav
ing" one week received through the
mall 14,000, little care was taken in
the number stuck on eacn panel, until
the total reached 99,998.-Philadelphia
