Some of the newspapers of Paris,
commenting upon the expulsion of the
Russian second Pacific squadron from
French territorial waters in Indo-
China, hold that Fiance, in seeking
to render exact justice to Japan, has
been unjust to Russia. The Echo de
Paris, which is strongly pro-Russian,
jays that France's insistence upon Ro

Past Week of the War.
Important war developments were
expected in the far east last week, but
the expectations were not realized.
The great naval battle for which the
world has been looking may yet be far
away, for even the experts have found
all their calculations upset by the pro
gress of events. It was thought that
the two fleets must come together soon
after Rojestvensky had passed Singa
pore, but no one seems to. know what
Admiral Togo's plan of campaign is,
and predictions as to the great fight
that must eventually come are merely
It is evident that France will heed
the Japanese protest against the Rus
sian squadron making French waters
a base for operations, and Rojestven
sky will probably put to sea and move
toward the north. He may be attacked
off Formosa or he may be allowed to
approach nearer to Vladivostock. One
authority had it tnat the Japanese
plan was to allow the Russian ships
to enter Vladivostock, where they
could be destroyed after the fashion
adopted at Port Arthur. Perhaps such
a program might appeal to an expert,
but to a layman it would hardly seem
possible that a good sea fighter of the
Togo order would allow a hostile fleet,
after so long a voyage, to proceed leis
urely up the Chinese coast and not
attempt to do serious damage to it.
The Manchurian war news has been
even more featureless than that from
the sea. The great armies appear to
be idle, and there is no definite infor
mation regarding contemplated ad
vance movements. However, it has
not been the practice of Oyama to
stand still if he was in a position tt>
move effectively, and it can not be
many weeks before he once more takes

Roosevelt a Great Reader.
President Roosevelt's love for the
woods aijd the plains is no greater
than his affection for books, writes
the Washington correspondent of the
New York Tribune. In spite of the
busy life he leads and the regular
hours he keeps, it is safe to say that
few men of affairs in the republic read
more than the president, and fewer
yet extend their literary foraging over
a wider range of subjects. In addition
to "keeping up" with the important
newspapers and magazines, which is
a task in itseli, the president is al
ways abreast of the times in fiction,
science, historical research and art.
Reading is to the president what rest
is to most men. When he is at his
home in Oyster Bay, at the White
House in Washington, or in his car
speeding over the rails to meet some
distant engagement, he is invariably
found wth a book in his hand when
not engaged in some more important
work. When he starts on a trip, be
it long or short, his car is always
stocked with volumes and magazines,
and just as soon as he disposes of his
correspondence or bows out the visit
ing "local committeemen" who come
to pay their respects, he takes up the
book that lays open and continues to
race through its pages. Aided by a
wonderfully retentive memory, the
president holds fast all that he reads,
and is ready, if the need arises, to re
peat almost any thought expressed by
the author, years after his eye had
traveled with lightning speed over the
page. That the president is able to
cover so much ground in literature is
due to his systematic sticktoitiveness.
Easter Day and Its Origin.
It is probable that Easter received
its name from the Saxon goddess Eas
tre, whose festival was kept about the
same season each year as Easter.
In the ancient church the celebra
tion of Easter lasted eight days, but
in later times it was limited to two or
three days. It used to be a festival
of pleasure as well as a time for
generosity and the performing of good
deeds. Alms were given to the needy,
the sick were visited by the rich and
great, and often slaves were freed
and poor unfortunates suffering im
prisonment liberated. Services were
held during the whole week preceding
Easter Sunday, on which day people
greeted each other with kisses, say
ing: "He 1b risen!" the response al
ways, being: "He is risen, indeed!" In
the Greek church this custom ip still
The custom of exchanging eggs on
Easter —or during Holy Week —is a
very old one and symbolizes the resur
rection or renewed life.
Easter day is always the first Sun
day after the tull moon which comes
upon or next after the 21st of March,
which date is the beginning of the
old church year.
If the full moon comes on Sunday,
Easter day falls on the Sunday follow

NAVAL FIGHT RUMOR
JAPANESE SCOUTING DIVISION
BUMPS INTO RUSSIAN FLEET.
Rojestvensky Sailed North Last Sat
urday From Kamranh Bay and
Heavy Firing Was Heard All Day in
Direction in Which They Sailed—ls
Thought Japs Are Playing for Time.
Paris, April 25. —It is believed here
that there was some fighting between
Admiral Rojestvensky's fleet and the
Japanese scouting division late Satur
day afternoon. This belief is based
upon a special dispatch to the Temps
from its correspondent at Saigon, who
cables as follows:
"The entire Russian fleet, which has
been anchored in Kamranh bay for
some days, sailed northward at noon
Saturday. Soon after they had passed
out of sight a vigorous cannonading
was heard in the direction in which
they had sailed. The firing continued
until late in the evening and is believ
ed to have been caused either by an at
tack on the advance guard of the Rus
sian fleet by a Japanese scouting
squadron or else an attack by destroy
ers on the Russians."
A later dispatch from the corres
pondent says: "Four transports, with
troops aboard, arrived at Saigon on
Saturday. No one was permitted to
board them and there is no means of
finding out where they are oound. The

arrived here late on Saturday night re

The firing previously reported is de
clared to have been heard by a num

St. Petersburg, April 25.—The news

Should Admiral Rojestvensky reach
