PARIS, July 8,-Germany will support
Hussla, and that for three reasons. The
first Is that she has an Interest in
maintaining Russia In the Far East In
order to have all the voice In the Near
East; the second Is "that she sees a
means of causing a breach between us
and England in 'forcing her to choose
between Anglo-Japanese alliance and the
"Entente Cordiale:" the third Is that
thus she will drlvo Fiance into collabor?
ating with her to help our allies.
Ever s.nce the conclusion of the Franco
Xtusslan alliance Germany has pursued
alternately two different policies; while
trying to draw closer to England, and to
divorce Paris and Dondon, she 'has *et
herself to unltp against England the
three Continental Powers. The former
of those two policies having miscarried
(at the end of 1800 In China and at the
beginning of 1901, and In the Venezuelan
affair), .she devoted herself to the second
(the Inauguration of the Kiel Canai, the.
treaty of Shimonoeekl, the Chlnesp ex?
pedition under the leadership of Field
Marshal Wuldersee). In Intervening in
the same sense, that we do. she will try
to restore the triple entente in 1S95.
It Is to Germany's Interest that R?e?
nla should be kept occupied In Asia.
Ttussla In the Far Ea?t means Ger?

arbiter of Europe.

of Germany. If Russia and England re?

exile, must support Russia. The Foreign
Office. In the Japanese alliance, wished
to keep the Russians In check, but far
from driving them to war, tiled to h'jld
them hack, to the point even of arous?
ing the complaints of the Japanese press,
?which saw in the aillante rather an ob?
stacle than in action against Russ a.%
After the opening of hostilities a Van?
couver newspaper expresses Its fears:
"If Japan," it said, "Is vlctoriou?, will
that be a go"d thing for British Colum?
bia, which has already so many subjects
of the Mikado; and what will'happen if
victorious Japan make pretensions to
pre-eminence in the Southern archipelago
commanding Australia? Certain conse?
quences may arise which have not been
vntlclpated by the authors of the
England Begins to Reflect.
The English In India, who at first had
ecen in jnp??n nothing but a valuable ally
engage^ in* holding Russia's attention
while they did their business In Thibet,
Afghanistan and Persia, are beginning to
reflect, and I.ord Curzon rs driven to take
severe measures against the influence ex?
ercised by the Japanes* upon the Hindus.
It Is realized even In India that there Is
room in Asia for Russia, and for England
?a view that Lord Salisbury held, and
that Mr. Balfoui? and M.'Witte . hold.
Finally the mnst Important English news?
papers of Japan, the Kobe Chronicle and
the Dally Mall, have put the Japanese on
their gu.'trd against the temptation they
Incur of falling to keep their pledges,
even In what concerns the Independence
of Corea.

be mistress of the sea, and England can?
not surfer that loss without herself be?

Among the 111 new cadets who entered the United Statee Military
Academy at West Point, in June, are two snappy-eyed little Chinese, Ting
Chia Chen and Ylng Hsing Wen. They are only eighteen years old, under?
sized, according to American standards, and handicapped by an imperfect
knowledge of English. These two Celestials bear the proud flonpr, of being
the first of their race to enter West Point. The reason for Cadets Chen
and Wen having entered the Military Academy, where Uncle Sam trains
his officers, is the hope that China may have a military head and leader
like other nations.

peasants' play at Oberammergau this
summer. His verdict Is not altogether
Mr. and Mrs. Frohman hawj been trav?
eling In Belgium, Gerrnany ard Switzer?
land, and were In Munich two weeks.
"The play at Oberammergau," said Mr.
Frohman. "Is a combination o? the Pas?
sion play and the story of David and
Saul. It is called "The School of the
Cross." It was well rendered, but Is'
rather prosy and undramatlc, though lur
mlnous from a Biblical point of view,
and made Interesting by the introduction
of living tableaux from the well known
Passion play, which began with the entry
of Christ into Jerusalem and endiid with
the final catastrophe on the croit.
"This gave the production special Inter?
est, inasmuch as those who have not seen
the Pa-sslon play were able to get a
glimpse with the originai? ?? the cast, ? I
think this Is shrewd from the money point
of-view, as the thrifty villagers hoped to
draw money to their coffers, "rfie ten
years' interval hetween the Passion play
porformnnces being too long to wnlt.
"But, as In the case of 'Parsifal' at
Beyrouth, the Oberammorgnu folk aro
much disturbed by the fact that the Pas?
sion play Is now produced In other places
on the Continent. They nro as much dis?

their right of pre-emption, still none can

PARIS, July 8.?Stormy weather hie
-been experienced In Paris this week, and
though the great event, the international
cup race, was not influenced by meteoro?
logical conditions, their effect has been
generally unfavorable to sporting and so?
ciety reunions,
Sunday, It is true, was wonderfully
bright, and people were able to sport
their summer finery with safety. The
following day was extremely-' hot, and
somewhat cloudy. The same conditions
obtained Tuesday, until evening, when a
storm with heavy rain burst over the
city. Wednesday w-as extremely gloomy,
the afternoon being showery, while a
drenching rain fell In the evening, ac?
companied by a rapid fall in the tempera?
ture.? ' .
These vagaries of the weather affected
the dog show, held at the fashionable
club in the Bois, adversely, for many of
the fair exhibitors sacrificed their chances
in their various sets rather than risk
their tolllettes. A dull and cool morning
on Thursday was followed- by a bright
afternoon, admirably suited for the cer
mony accompanying the translation of
the body of the American naval hero,
Paul Jones, which, on leaving the
church was greeted with a brilliant
burst of sunshine. Light showers later
In the evening proved, however, that
conditions were still stormy and unset?
tled. '
Damage From Storms.
In the provinces much damage was
caused by storms. Sixty houses wore
swept away by a tornado' at Cernay and
the grain crops m the Department Du

Public Feeling Awakened to
What May Have Been Cause

Commission-Will Make
a Thorough In

(Special Cable to The Times-Dispatch and

(Copyright, by the Now York Herald Co.)
LONDON, July 8.?There seems to be
no end to the scares raised In London
about poisonous matter of some sort or
other lurking ln delicacies of the table.
Last year It was the oyster which was
condemned by reason of numerous foul
beds upon which they were kept.
Now even a more necessary urtlcle ot
diet has been condemned for something
worse than the trouble for which the oys?
ter was driven from the dinner table.
Thirty per cent, of the poultry reared
in this country and subsequently served
up at table, have suffered from some form
or other of tuberculosis. Tins is lilt
startling ?tatement made by a poultry
.expert when asked his opinion regarding
)the report that the Royal Commission
'now considering the whole subject of
tuberculosis was about to consider the
question of tuberculosis in poultry.
It is not a new, suggestion by any
means. It has been dwelt upon before at
meetings of the medical faculty, but it Is
only now that a commission is about
to take the matter Into serious con?
sideration that public feeling has been
awakened to what may have been the
cause of many cases of consumption.
The authority quoted above offers the
comforting Information to lovers of poul?
try that such diseases as roup, wet roup,
swelled head, dropsy of the wattles,
gapes, liver disease and pip, all of which
are the bane of the poultry farmer, ari
mere'ly different forms of tuberculosis,
and "there arc districts In England,"
says an official of the National Pouljry
Organization society, "wh.pre.lt is Im?
possible to carry on poultry farming,
owing to the presence of the germs of
tuberculosis in the ?Oil. t have frequently
seen in the best poultry stores and in
restaurant windows skinny birds which

''Personally I consider there Is great
danger to the public health In thousands
of yards where poultry is reared under
the most filthy conditions, and birds from
most of these find their -way to the Lon?
don market."

PARIS, July ?.?Mme. Sarah Bernhardt
was victorious this week in a suit arising
from the eternal theatre hat question] She
was sued for the price of two seats,! plus
lOOf. damages, by an indignant theatre?
goer, whose view of the stage was com?
pletely obstructed by a monumental spec?
imen of the milliner's art, which a fair
wearer refused to remove.

claring Parisians should know that such

BERLIN, July 8.?Professor Lassar, a
famous Berlin skin speclallst, has found
means to render red noses to their nor?

shaped like a large tooth brush, with
forty platinum wires instead of bristles
is used, nnd this is connected with an
electrical machine. The treatment con?
sists ot hammering the lurid nose till
It bleeds, when the treatment Is stopped
for a day. Two hammerings a week

LONDON, July 8.?The? temperature Is
rising, not meteorologically merely, but
in the autom?bile world, as well.
The' racing for the International Cup,
while discussed ? with ? Interest, did not
create much excitement here, for the
reason that it was, never anticipated as it
turned out?that the English competl'tors
had a chance.
The excitement, which is Increasing, is
quite In another direction, and the "pros"
and "antis" of automobilism are waxing
very wroth against each other.
The "pros" were confident that what
they termed th? senseless and outrageous
order excluding the electric, as ; well as
the petrol driven automobile from Hyde
Park during the afternoon parades would
on representation to the House of Cords
be rescinded. Now they are furious that
it Is not.
It was Lord Rosslyn who championed
the causo of the pro-automobilists in (G??
Lords, as far as electric broughams were ?
concerned, but Lord WlndSor, the first
Commissioner of Works, was adamant in
refusing to Bee a difference between tho
silent, non-smelling electric ?and other
automobiles complained of chiefly for
their smell, and so the antl-automoblllsts
were delighted, and are manifesting their
delight to such a degree through the
medium of the press that the "pros" are
naturally all the more exnsporated at the
check that has been put upon automobil?
ism in Hyde Park.

Germany, Denmark, Norway and Eng?
He was the first automobilist to cross

of Pr?sident Roosevelt, and ho was re?
