St. Petersburg, Russia. Oct. 21.
The new commercial treaty recently
signed by representatives of China
and the United States is regarded
us inimical to Russian interests in
the Orient. It is confidently as
serted thnt Russia will protest
against the ratification of the treaty.
Washington, Oct. 12. Vhcu the
press report regarding the attitude
of Russia toward the .new Chinese
treaty was brought to the attention
of leading officials, there was a gen
eral expression of disbelief in the
story. Secretary Hay does not be

London, England, Oct. 21. A
rumor was circulated on the Stock
Exchange today that negotiations
between Russia and Japan have
been brought to a close. The dip

to give any definite information.
Tokio, Tnpan, Oct. 21. The ac
tivity of the Russians on the Koreati
borders continues with unabated
Yokohama, Japan, Oct. 21. The
events of the last few days have
given rise to renewed apprehension.
The feeling throughout Japan has
settled into confirmed belief that
war is inevitable. Admiral Toga
has been placed in command of the

newspaper asserts that Russia has
made a treaty with China which
gives the former practical control of
Manchuria and nominally control
Berlin, Germany, Oct. 22. Rus
sia has assured Germany that she
will remain on the defensive even
if Japan does occupy the Korean
ports. But Russia states that Japan
must not cross the Yalu river from
Korea into Manchuria. ,.
Santiago, Chile, Oct. 22. Japan
is endeavoring to purchase the two
recently completed t Chilean war
ships that rumor stated a few
months ago had been sold to Ger
many. Yokohama, Oct. 23. It is re
ported that the hitch in the diplo
matic negotiations between Japan
and Russia over the Manchurian
and Korean questions hinges on
Japan's demand that she have equal
railway rights with Russia in Man
churia. Tokio, Japan, Oct. 23. The
elder Japanese statesmen will hold
another confetence tomorrow con
cerning the strained relations with
Russia which may have an impor
tant bearing on the question of de
claring war against Russia.
Peking, China, Oct. 23. It is
reported that Russia has warned
China that she must not side with
Japan in the event of hostilities.
Says lliinullnn Suffrage Is Wrong.
Lake Mohonk, Uct. 22. I,ucieu
Walker of New York, in an address
before the Indian conference in ses
sion here, stated today that the
granting of universal suffrage in
Hawaii had been a mistake, and
cited the destruction of the legisla
tive vouchers as an instance of the
harm that had resulted.
London, Oct. 23. The Miner's
Federation has adopted a policy in
opposition to Joseph Chamberlain's
preferential tariff campaign.
Panama, Colombia, Oct 23.
Colombia and Nicaragua have
agreed upon President Diaz, of
Mexico, as arbitrator of their boun
Salonica, Turkey, Oct. 21. The

from the Philippines shall in future

man Wuniser, Griffith, Damey &
Co., Brai'deiistcin, and tried to get
some one of those concerns to finan
cially go into a cannery proposition,
but each and every one pointed out
that any cannery on a small scale
would not pay.
Finally the California Fruit Can
iters' Association, through its man
ager, Mr. R. I.Bentley, very kindly
took the matter up with me, nud
after several interview, in which I
pointed out the whole situation, he
thought that the California Fruit
Catiucrs' Association might put up
a fully equipped factory in Hilo nud
make contracts to purchase from the
growers their crops for a number of
years at a price that would leave a
fair profit to the grower and ulti
mately a like profit to the cannery.
I say ultimately, for they will lose
money for a year or two on exist
ing crops, and their profits ulti
mately could only come by growers
guaranteeing yearly increased out
put, till at last 20,000 or 25,000
cases could be put up annually. I
took upon myself to say that in my
opinion this proposition would be
the best for all concerned, and Mr.
Bentlcy has so far endorsed the
proposition as to send his brother,
Mr. C, II. Bentley, to Hilo to lock
thoroughly into the situation, nud
provided his report is favorable and
a basis of price fixed for a few
years I have no doubt but that Hilo
will have a flourishing industry
added to its prosperity. I trust
that all the members will give Mr.
Bentley every courtesy, and as the
cannery has no prospect of divi
dends for a number of years I would
impress on all growers to accept
the lowest possible price for their
crops to begin with, and perhaps
an increasing scale for future crops
could be arranged.

Judge Little, sitting at Chambers, I
has rendered a decision in the suit '
for specific performance brought by ;
Chas. McFarlan et al. vs. F. S. Ly
man et al. to enforce a certain con
tract for the purchase of land at

their attorneys, Wise & Ross, asked

November 27, 1899, the date of the
purchase contract. Smith & Par
sous for defendants contested the
iiit at every point.
The defense claimed a set-off
against this amount for labor and 1
expenditures upon the laud under '
a power of attorney from the de
fendants. The Court held that this ,
power of attorney imposed noothr ,
obligation and extended no further I
grant of power than to pay the pat
ent fees. It was also held that
plaintiffs had fulfilled all the re
quirements of the right of purchase
leases, and that no other or further
cultivation, improvements or clear
ing was necessary or required by

Idition precedent to the issuing of,
i patents. It was also held that the
I oral agreement under which de-'
feudauts claimed an equitable set-off ,
had not been sustained. The Court
therefore found that the contract of
November 27, 1899, between plain-
I tiffs and defendants contained all
j the necessary terms of a valid con
tract and all of the terms of agree
ment between the parties relative to
the purchase and sale of the laud
in question, and that the defendants
accepted the same and entered into
possession in pursuance thereof,
subject to all its terms and condi
tions; that its acceptance made a
letral contract between the parties,
