before the war. Russia has lost from
the beginning of the war 12 out of her
19 battleships, four out of her 11 coast
defense vessel, four out of her seven
armored cruisers and five out of her
20 other cruisers.
If the Japanese should be able to
raise and repair the ships sank at
Port Arthur, another large addition
must be made to her fleet. At least
four cruisers remain to be captured at
Vladivostok and the terms of peace
may give her the battleship Czare
vitch and all the cruisers laid up at
neutral ports from Tsingtau to Manila.
Japan has also two battleships build
ing in England. This would carry her
well above Italy's 254,000 tons and give
her fifth place. It is possible that her
total gains in the next two years may
bring her close to Germany and the

No tips can be given iu Wisconsin.
The anti-graft bill recently passed by
the legislature has been signed by
Gov. La Follette and no gratuities of
any kind can be given to employes of
any firm by outsiders without danger
of arrest and fine. While the bill was
aimed originally at the practice of pay
ing commissions to employes of large
stores or corporations whose influence
went a great way in the purchase of
goods, it is held t hat it applies as well
to tip giving, and anyone feeing a wait
er is just as liable as a person giving
an employe a present to have hint rec
ommend the goods of the giver. Mer
chants are asking for pies of the
law to see just what they are up
against. Among minor employes there
is consternation b'st they be deprived
of the tips which iu many cases make
a large part of ("heir emoluments in
lieu of salary.
For Uniform Game Ltw,
Reviewing the work of the legisla
tures of the various states, it is notice
able how widespread is the sentiment
iu favor of uniform game and fish
laws. In the majority of cases they
are advocated for two or three states
which are separated by a large river,
or which, for some similar reason, are
closely allied respecting game or fish
The movement is spreading year by
year; the old practice of quarreling
across the borders of status is giving
way to a friendlier feeling: more is
heard of the proposals to give over the
protection of fish and game to the fed
eral government. What the outcome
will be is not far to seek. It will never
do to have uniform laws for all states
or even for any large number of them.
But the future laws of the northern
Mates will be made with more defer
ence to the conditions In the south
and vice versa, since in common in
terest In game and fish protection will
be found the solution of any problems
that have vexed our sjiortsmen and
will continue to vex them until there
are comprehensive changes for the
Keanll of Togo' Victory.
The eastern war has already made
remarkable change in the naval rank
of the maritime powers. Perhaps the
peace that is to follow will make the
change still greater. Before the war
the naval powers ranked as follows

many. United States. Italy. Japan and
Austria. Only Great Britain. France
and Austria remain in the same rela

from fourth place to seventh. Ger

DAILY SHORT STORY
MISSING A MILLION.
Coprr'eht 1905. by T. C. McClure.
In the year 3S70, while a British man-of-war
was lying in the tort of Ningpo,
there was something approaching a
mutiny acting the men. and Immedi
ately after over forty men deserted.
Among these were two Americana
named Ilsyues and Brnner. Tbey got
away to Shanghai, and front 1bere tbey
f"ll in with a Fron-h'nau who bad
leeu in the -country several years aa
an agent. He had a atnry to tell about
the Kiimnn islands, a tory that had
been told him two yearn lrfore while
he Mas at Nuipo. A Chinese sailor
whom be had befriended later on. had
Ix-en cat ashore on the middle island
and had esisted tlere for four months.
In roaming :ilut he bad discovered an
old wr'-k driven into a break iu the
rliffs and had lowered hlmalf down to
It to find that it whb an old pirate era ft
and fut! of treaurt H bad taken out
n small amount when a fishing craft
appeared and took him off, and later
on. dorinif a storm at pea, be had met
with an -'Met that bad paral.v7.od
h's lower limbs.
What tt" f'h'iiaman nanlM. of
course, m a that the Frenchman, whose
name was Supr.v. should yet up an ex
)cditiii and Jo after the treasure.
There "ere many difficulties in the
way. Snpry was no sailur himself, aud
he could put no faith In the natives or
the white sailors whet deserted their
ships. There would le considerable ex
pense, and there must be absolute se
crecy. Why he trusted Ilaynes and
Brnner was tierhaps because tie bad
hecorne desperate in tits dewire to over
haul the treasure, and as tbey were de
serters from a tnanof-war he bad rea
son to Itelteve that they would not dare
serve him any trb-k for fear of Iwinir
reported and recaptured. Whatever the
motive, however, he told them a ste-.v
and wiiHucsied an expedition, and a few
weeks later one left the port of Ning
po. The party was made up of Supry.
Ilrtvnes-. Kriuier.au Englishman natned
Webb and two t'hlneiie laborers, and
their craft was a junk.
It was two wt-cks before the wreck
was found. The only way to get down
to her was to descend a cliff sixty feet
hixh. When she wn at last found and
visited the report of the treasure was
found correct. She had leii a lighting
junk, carrying alsiut iity men. and
the variety of the plunder ou hoard
sbows that she had robbed light and
left, ller name proved that she bad
lielonged to the piratical Meet of old
ChlngtiM. a well known pirate of that
late, and one who was subsequently
blown out of the water by a British
cruiser. There had ls-en a great fall
of earth and rck around the treasure
wreck. This was tunneled through
and her hold found full of caah and
plunder. In fact, cash and jewelry t
the amount of t lo.ntV) waa taken out
la fore a landslip oreurnsl which killed
one of the laborers. It was then seen
that the outlet was deficient. They
must have blasting powder and tools
and tackles, and it was resolved to run
back to port and secure thm. Supry
was left on the Island to guard the
treasure, aud the others set sail for
Ningpo. The man left behind bad no
firearms, and how he was to net as
guard Is hard to see.
The junk reached Nfngjio all right,
but as soon as the sailora legan to buy
this aud that suspicion waa aroused.
Just as they Lad secured what they
waiit-d and were ready to return to
the isinuds they were arrested and
thrown Into prison as suspects. The
three white men refused to give up
any information, although the bamboo
was often applied to the aolea of their
feet, but the4'hlnesc lalsurerwaa whip
ped into telling all about It. Fie could
tell all alsuit the Inlands and the treas
ure, but be could riot locate them.
The ( "blne.se government took a hand
In the matter and tent out two or three
vessel to scout around; but, while
thy visltnl many other Islands, they
did not land on the Humans. Twice a
week for two months the prisoners
were brought out and bastinadoed, but
all were firm. At length the Kngllsh
mau dh-d under the punishment, and
at the cud of three months, when the
government had determined on torture
of the most savage kind to compel a
confession. Hay ne? and Brnner gave
the story away. There waa aom delay
about getting an expedition off, and,
taken altogether, it was pearly six
month before one alghted the ahores
of the Islands. All three of thetn were
carefully g-ne over, hut Hupry could
not lie found.
The wreck waa there, but not as it
had tseu left. A fore of men had
In-eii there and cleared . away the de
bris and looted all the treaaure. Not
so much as a "cash" had teii left 1?
hlnd. Things bad happened Jnftt aa the
Chin ewe gtt eminent might have looked
for. Old Chlnatoo was still doiua: busi
ness, and It waa certain that h would
aud did hear tit the finding of the
wreck. If she bad been given up for
lost she waa now located where he
could fid her and recover the plunder.
It is likely that he aent an expedition
as soon as the matter became public:
The Frenchman was found on guard,
and the p'rate made short wik of
him. There waa hope for a few years
that he might have been made captive
and would he heard of again, but thir
ty At years have ela paed, and no news
Las come from him.
The gorernment expedition had ita
troubl for Its reward, and when It re
tnrnad Haynea and Brnner were con
fined In rages and carried around the
country Ifke wild beasts. They were
treated with the utmost cruelty for
three years, and then Bruner died un
der it and Haynea waa rescued by the j
