THE BEAR INTilAllCHURIA
John Brisben Walker Discusses
tA Russo-Chinese Situation.
AN TOGEHT WAEHIHQ EOUHDED.
Greatest War That the World Has
Ever Seen Sow Predicted br the
Well Known. Editor Wao Says
That Either America and Southern
Europe Blast Flffht Ruiia or Con
cede All Aala.
John Brisben Walker, editor of the
Cosmopolitan, has contributed to the
New York Journal an article on the
Itusso-Chinese situation entitled "Will
Russia Rule the World?" Mr. Walker
spent two years In the Chinese military
service, going from West Point mili
tary academy in 18G8 at the invitation
of Mr. Anson Burlingame, who was at
that time in the United States on his
mission around the world. Mr. "Wal
ker accompanied the Hon. Roa3
Browne, who was Mr. Burlingame's
successor as United States minister in
Peking, and during his two years in
China traveled over the northern por
tion of the empire. He had an oppor
tunity to study the Chinese as soldiers
and to understand the geographical
problems. He is familiar with the
Manchurian and Mongolian character,
and also had an opportunity upon the
occasion of two visits to Japan to see
and admire the character of the Jap
anese as soldiers.
Mr. Walker's article follows:
We are probably on the eve of the
greatest war that the world has ever
seen. I am opposed to war; I do not
believe In war; I hope there never will
be another war. But if there can be
a just war it is called for now. Either
America and southern Europe must
fight Russia at this time or concede to
her all of Asia.
Few people understand how insidi
ously Russia has been moving her
forces up against the barriers of Per
sia, India and China. Year after year
Russian army posts have been advanc
ed, re-enforced, built into large com
mands, until today Russia is ready to
attack not China alone, but along her
entire frontier line in Asia, and is prob
ably in a position to capture China,
India and even Persia unless a deter
mined front is put up by The rest of
It is astounding the lethargy which
has been exhibited toward the occupa
tion of Manchuria. Every one in the
least familiar with the situation has
recognized that once Russia became
intrenched In northern China, with the
Transsiberian railway completed, her
battle ships in sufficient numbers, it
would be almost impossible to dislodge
her. She came Into Manchuria deliber
ately; she never had any intention of
leaving it, and she is quite ready today
to begin battle.
Probably she has counted most on
the indifference felt in the United
States regarding her occupation of
Manchuria. During a discussion with
a Russian who was visiting me several
years ago I asked the question, "What
part of China does Russia want?" He
replied, "Russia wants no part of Chi
na," then added after a moment, "She
wants it all."
The Manchurians and Mongols fur
nish splendid fighting material, at least
so far as private soldiers go. They can
live on almost nothing, make long
marches, sleep on the ground, obey or
ders and learn to handle firearms with
accuracy.' In other words, they have
all the elements of first class private
The Russians have the officers ready
to put over them. It will not be nec
essary for Russia to move vast num
bers of men from Europe. Russia is
now established, its forts built; its
navies are in the eastern harbors of
Asia, the officers have arrived, and vast
quantities of stores and arms have
been shipped in. It only remains now
to drill the natives in order to organize
an army large enough to sweep down
on Peking and over northern China.
Whence will the force be brought to
combat the army that Russia has even
now on the ground? This is estimated
in some of the daily papers at 80,000,
with another 100,000 comparatively
near by in reserve. The brave little
Japanese have neither the numbers
nor the wealth to combat a nation such
as Russia. The Chinese are unorgan
ized. The English will have enough
to do to defend India.
Meanwhile French, German, English
and Americans are too busy with af
fairs to reflect that if Russia adds an
other 400,000,000 to her subjects and
then with her low priced labor builds
armaments she will be a threat to the
rest of the world. Even America, vain
as we are of our strength, might well
find occasion in the future to regret
our present indifference.
Manchuria is but a stepping stone to
China. China captured, the balance of
power Is forever determined. Napoleon
said that In a hundred years the world
would be either Cossack or republican.
We have been so intent upon our own
little corner of the world that we have
failed to reflect what a Cossack world
The Manchurian question is the most
tremendous matter before the world
today, but it is all so distant and Rus
sia is doing her will so quietly that we
are like children without comprehen
sion of what the future will hold.

BANQUET" IN A SEWER.
Dinner Served In Iforel Style at Wa
In a huge drain pipe brilliant with
long strings of varicolored electric
lights and banks of gorgeous flowers
delegates to the annual meeting of the
Iowa Lieague of Municipalities while,
in session at Waterloo,, la., were enter
tained at an elaborate banquet a few
nlghta ago, says the Chicago later
Ocean. Strains of music floated weird
ly through the long tunnel as the dele
gates dined, and the curving roof 'flung
back with carious echo the spejches
which broughUthe banquet to an tend.
The "sewer banquet," as It was
called, was the special feature fof this
year's convention of the league. It
was held in Waterloo's mammoth new
concrete drain pipe, said to- be the
largest sewer constructed by tany mu
nicipality. Mayor P. J. Martin, who
presided at the dinner, said that the
sewer banquet idea originated in a joke
made in the council when work on the
sewer wes first started. When the
6ewer was nearing completion it was
decided that the scheme was feasible,
and it was determined to carry; it out.
The sewer is 4000 feet fongiandwas
built at a total -cost of $90,000. In its
construction 40,000,000 feet of material
were used. One block of the eewer
was partitioned off into a temporary
banquet hall, in which a table 400 feet
long was placed. Around this were
seated many prominent Iowa officials,
who enjoyed the novelty of the affair.
Hundreds of electric ligMs were strung
through the "banquet hall." Beasutiful
decorations and music combined to
make the scene one of novel beauty.
The banquet ended with proposals of
toasts for Waterkxs future prosperity.

"What place is this, son?" inquired
the former president.
"Pittsburg, sir. Have a paper?" re
sponded, the boy.
"Why, this can't be Pittsburg," said
Mr. Cleveland. "The' sun is out bright

The newsboy met the conductor pass

"Don't you know who that gentle
man is?" asked the conductor.
"No, and I don't want to know him,"
replied the newsboy.
"That's Grover Cleveland, formerly

"Hully gee!" exclaimed the newsboy.
YALE MEN AS MONEY MAKERS

Some interesting and significant
statements are shown in the Yale Bu
reau of Self Help, recently issued at
New Haven, Conn., says the New York
Tribune. According to a careful can

the students during the summer for
their winter tuition. Of this amount
$10,002 was earned by thirty-seven
More money was earned by private
tutoring than in any other way, but
among the queer ways of earning mon
ey was that of acting as pallbearers at
funerals by eight men working togeth

laundries, painting, wheeling Invalid
chairs, ' selling spring water, cutting
wood, selling violets at Junior prome
nades and soliciting for trucking com

money to meet expenses at the univer

Mrs. Wallace Radcliffe and other
women prominent in society had charge
of a hat show under the auspices of
the Audubon society at the Raleigh ho
tel, in Washington, the other day, says
the New York Herald. The leading
milliners of the city sent samples of
their prettiest hats to show that good
style and bird protection are not in
compatible. The Audubon society in
Washington baa many prominent mem
bers. President Roosevelt is one of Its
honorary vice presidents; also Bishop
Satterlee and Mr. Charles J. Bell. Mr.
and Mrs. Thomas F. Walsh are life
members. Mr. Walsh is noted for his
)rotection of animal and bird life on his
extensive estates in Colorado. Follow

of New York and several other states,

Mayor Charles W. Kempel of Akron,

toxication cases in police courts. The
usual fine for plain drunks has always
been $2 and costs. The mayor . has
made the rule that single men shall
pay this enm, but married men who
get under the Influence shall be let off
with $1 and the costs. J. Y. Anthony
of Youngstown was one of the prison

of the rule remarked:

The better class of druggists, everywhere, are men of scientific attainments and high integrity,
who devote their lives to the welfare of their fellow men in supplying the best of remedies and'
purest medicinal agents of known value, in accordance with physicians' prescriptions and
scientific formula. Druggists of the better class manufacture many excellent remedies, but
always under original or officinal names and they never sell false brands, or imitation medicines.
They are the men to deal with when in need of anything in their line, which usually includes
all standard remedies and corresponding adjuncts of a first-class pharmacy and the finest and
best of toilet articles and preparations and many useful accessories and remedial appliances.
The earning of a fair living, with the satisfaction which arises from a knowledge of the benefits
conferred upon their patrons and assistance to the medical profession, is usually their greatest
reward for long years of study and many hours of daily toil. They all know that Syrup of
Figs is an excellent laxative remedy and that it gives universal satisfaction, and therefore they
are selling many millions of bottles annually to the well informed purchasers of the choicest
remedies, and they always take pleasure in handing out the genuine article bearing the full
name of the Company California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of every package.
They know that in cases of colds and headaches attended by biliousness and constipation and
of weakness or torpidity of the liver and bowels, arising from irregular habits, indigestion, or
over-eating, that there is no other remedy so pleasant, prompt and beneficial in its effects as
Syrup of Fig3, and they are glad to sell it because it gives universal satisfaction.
Owing to the excellence of Sjnrup of Figs, the universal satisfaction which it gives and the
immense demand for it, imitations have - been made, tried and condemned, but there are
individual druggists to be found, here and there, who do not maintain the dignity and principles
of the profession and whose greed gets the better of their judgment, and who do not hesitate
to recommend and try to sell the imitations in order to make a larger profit. Such preparations
sometimes have the name " Syrup of Figs" or "Fig Syrup" and of some piratical concern,
or fictitious fig syrup company, printed on the package, but they never have the full name of
the Company California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of the package. The imitations
should be rejected because they are injurious to the system. In order to sell the imitations
they find it necessary to resort to misrepresentation or deception, and whenever a dealer passes
off on a customer a preparation under the name of "Syrup of Figs" or "Fig Syrup," which
does not bear the full name of the California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of the package,
he is attempting to deceive and mislead the patron who has been so unfortunate as to enter his
establishment, whether it be large or small, for if the dealer resorts to misrepresentation and
and deception in one case he will do so with other medicinal agents, and in the filling of
physicians' prescriptions, and should be avoided by every one who values health and happiness.
Knowing that the great majority of druggists are reliable, we supply the immense demand
for our excellent remedy entirely through the druggists, of whom it may be purchased every
where, in original packages only, at the regular price of fifty cents per bottle, but as exceptions
exist it is necessary to inform the public of the facts, in order that all may decline or return
any imitation which may be sold to them. If it does not bear the full name of the Company
California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of every package, do not hesitate to return the
article and to demand the return of your money, and in future go to one of the better class of
aruggisis wno win sell you what
