is due not only to the originality and
simplicity of the combination, but also
to the care and skill with which it is
manufactured by scientific processes
known to the California Fio Sykup
Co. only, and we wish to impress upon
all the importance of pvrchasing the
true and original remedy. As the
genuine Syrup cf Figs is manufactured
by the California Fie Syrcp Co.
only, a knowledge of that fact will
assist one in avoiding1 the worthless
imitations manufactured by other par
ties. The high standing of the Cali

which the genuine Syi up of Figs has
given to millions of families, makes
the name of the Company a guaranty
of the excellence of its remedy. It U

Tn view of the circumstance that the
Czarina is expecting to become a moth
er in the month of May, it is perfectly
evident that there can be no truth in
the stories recently promulgated con
cerning her future movements, and ac
cording to which she was to accom
pany her husband to the south of
France next monfh, and in March to
take part in the gathering of royal per
sonages who assemble every spring on
the Rivera.
The question of furnishing an heir
to the throneof Russia is of such mo
mentous importance, not only to the
Muscovite dynasty, but likewise to tho
nation, that the czarina would certain
ly not be permitted to incur the risk
of a trip right across Europe at a mo
ment when,- she is in such delicate
health as at present. Nor is it likely
that the emperor would permit her.
In. fact, I hear from St. Petersburg
that all arrangements have been made
for. the. czar and czarina to spend the
winter; and spring quietly at Tasar

functions having been abandoned out
of regard for the health of the em
press. The imperial couple are, however, to
receive a visit from the prince of
Wales, their favorite uncle, either be
fore or immediately after his sojourn
in the south of France. He has not
been in Russia since the time when hp
traveled to Livadia for the purpose of
attending the deathbed of his brother-in-law,
the late czar, and neither the
present emperor nor yet the Russian
e have forgotten the manner in

The prince of Wales is a very clever
and cautious diplomat, with a far
shrewder head upon his shoulders than
might be imagined by those who see
in him nothing but a frivolous and
pleasure-loving leader of English fash
ion. The relations between England and
Russia are of paramount importance in
everything that concerns the preserva
tion of peace in the old world, and this
being the case, the prince's visit to
Russia is regarded all over Europe as
an event of great importance, and des
tined to influence the course of future
event9 in no small degree.
Another consort or an old world rul
er who is expected to shortly present
her husband with an heir to his throne
is Ikbal Hanem, the wife of the khe
dive of Egypt, who has hitherto given
birth to nothing tVt girls. Unlike her
husband's mother, the dowager khe
divia, who is a princess by birth, Ikbal
Hanem was originally a slave, or an
odalisque In the harem of the young
ruler of Egypt, and was advanced to
the dignity of a wife as a reward for
having been the first cf the inmates of
his seraglio to present him with a
child. She is a woman of little or no
breeding or education, and is still com
pletely overshadowed by her once
beautiful, but now terribly obese moth- ,
er- in-law. :
Incidentally, I may state here in re
sponse to the inquiry of a correspond- j
ent that the meaning of the word khe-
dive is not viceroy, but king, at is a
title that was purchased by the grand
father of the present ruler of Egypt
from the sultan for an immense sum
of money.
iStrictly speaking, therefore, the khe
dlve and his consort ought to be ad
dressed as "majesty." But the foreign
powers have refused to see in the ad
vancement of old Hsmail from the rank
of pasha to that of khedive anything
more than a species cf purely Ottoman
transaction between the sultan and one
of his vassals, or rather provincial
governors, who, at Constantinople,
takes rank after the chief eunuch.
Consequently while the rulers of
Egypt are accorded by the powers "the
style of khedive, they have to content
themselves with the predicate of
"highness," which is the same that is
conceded to the chiei eunuch and to
the grand vizier at Constantinople.
With regard to the sultan's Inten
tion of conferring the order of the
Chefkat upon the wife of Senator
Cushman Davis, chairman cf the com
mittee on foreign relations at Wash
ington, it is a mistake to imagine that
she 'Will be the only American lady

who was United States envoy at Con
stantinople; Mrs. Whitelaw Reid, wife
of the editor of the New York Tribune:
Mrs. John Evans, and Miss Evans, the
wife and daughter respectively of the
late American dentist at Paris, who
sometimes concealed his good Ameri

quis d'Oyley. In addition to theso
there are several others, and the most
that can 'be said about the order is that
it is a rather pretty ornament to the
ball gown or dinner dress of a lady.
With regard to the sensational flight
from England of Canon Eyton in or
der to avoid arrest for the same species
of crime that led to the analogous
flight and exile of Lord Arthur Somer
set, how odd it is that the only digni
taries of the Church of England whom
we ever hear as guilty of shortcomings
sufficient to 'warrant the interference
of the law are invariably Canons. Thus,
I can recall the case of Canon Baines
who got into trouble in connection
with some fraud while three years ago
Lord Salisbury's chaplain was forced
to fly the country. How is it that one
never hears of a bishop, a. dean, or
even an archdeacon going wrong?
True, there is a story to the effect
that some men were arguing at a club
of St. James' Square one night about
the question as to whether every man
had not some skeleton in his closet
something or other, in fact, in his an
tecedents which would not bear th
light of day. With a view of provok
ing the truth of his assertion, the
leader in the discussion, on the spur of
the moment, and at pure hazard, ad
dressed an unsigned telegram to one of
the most universally respected deans
of the United Kingdom. The telegram
bore 5he words, "All is discovered. Fly
at once."
The following day the dean in ques
tion, scared evidently out of his wits
had left the country, although up t-j
that moment no one had ever been
aware that he had anything unsavory
to his credit.
I have known a couple of Russian
bishops to be convicted of crime, and
alter degradation from the eccle3ia
tical office, to be sentenced to penal
servitude; and there is likewise the
.case of the Roman Catholic monsignor
not oishop, however who died in
penury in New York. a few weeks ago,

Competition Threatened From the
United States a Serious Danger.
(Berlin. Feb. 6. The ever-recurring
sugar question was debated in the low
er house of the Prussian diet today
Baron Erffa traversed the views of
Baron von Thielmann, secretary of the
imperial treasury, and others who con
tended that the German sugar industry
was net threatened by American com
petition. Such a view, he said, did not
take into account the enormous finan
cial resources and energy of the Amer
ican sugar trust.
Baron von Hanimerstein-Loxten,
minister of agriculture, concurred with
Baron Effra in the opinion that the
danger threatening from the United
States was most serious. He said that
now that active, intelligent American
capitalists were about to exploit Cuba,
the competition from that island would
greatly increase in the immediate fu
ture. The danger to Germany from
the production of beet sugar in the
United States was constantly growing.
The exports of beet sugar from Ger
many to the United State3 amounted
to 4.S0O.00O hundred-weight less than
the export to Great Britain, but, never
tbeless, they constituted a large part of
tec total exports.
The minister urged that the only
remedy was to increase the home con
sumption of sugar. He referred hope
fully to the experiments of serving
sugar to the army, whieh Increased the
marching power of the troops, and also
to the fact that sugar was usefully em
ployed in fattening iigs.
fir. Balfour Sees in Them a Guar

Cjinment leader in the hous3, declared

and sympathy between nations.
There might be difficulties in realiz
ing such a comprehension even among
the most civilized nations, he

Great Britain. He need not say that
he meant the United States. (Ap
plause.) Some foreign cynics pro
fessed' to believe that the existing re
lations between the two countries were
a growth of the moment, depending
upon a transitory community of inter-
ets, with the disappearance of which
their friendship would disappear. His
observation cf the world had taught
him that cynics were always wrong.
During the dark days of the Vene
zuela controversy he had expressed
the conviction that the time would
come whan all English speak
ers and sharers in Saxon civili
zation would be united with a sym
pathy which no political controver
sies could permanently disturb. He
now saw such sympathy established by
tne marvellous change in realtions
which for more than a century had
been disturbed by uninterested dis
cord. If that sympathy was of the
character he believed it to be, there
could not be a greater guarantee of the
future peace, progress and civiliza
tion of the human race.

To Gather Information About
Cuban Soldiers.
Washington. Feb. 6. Tne disoatch
frcm Havana saying tha;. Robert P.
Porter has taken to Cuba $3,000,000 to
pay the Cuban army is a mistake. Mr.
Porter did not carry any government
money with him, nor has authority to
negotiate for the payment cf the Cu
ban soldiers. The object of Mr. Port
er's visit to Cuba is to investigate the
number and condition of the Cuban
soldiers and report to thi3 govern
ment. Senor Quesada, secretary of
the late Cuban junta in Wa?h'ngton
accompanied Mr. Porter to consult
with Gea. Gomez about the Cuban
soldiers. The result of thesa investi
gations may determine the policy cf
the administration.
Certain friends of the administra
tion have been advising the president
that the best way to quiet the Cubans
was to pay the insurgent army a sum
of money. The administration, how
ever, is not going to commit itself un
til it has all the data.

Manufacturers Concerned Over the
Invasion of Our Trade.
Washington, Feb. 6. Consul Hal
steaa or .Birmingham, .England, re
ports to the state department thit
there is a great awakening going on
among English manufacturers ove
the disastrous possibilities of American
trade competition. A new trade paper
there has met with a most cordial r
ception, he says, and the news columns
of both daily and trade papers are
filled with facts about American trade,
while the matter is given serious edi
torial discussion, which in English
daily papers means much more serious
consideration than the same editorial
space devoted to a like subject in the
average American newspaper. In this
week's issue of the particular trade pa
per referred to Mr. Halstead says that
fully twelve 900-word columns are de
voted to American trade matters about
one-half taken from the American con
sular reports.
In fact, he continues, I think the
United States consular reports are of a
greater service to Great Britain today
than thev are to America, becausj the
British trade publications are giving
more importance to them and quotin
them more fully than is done at
In support of this statement Consul
Halstead sends clippings from the pa
pers in question, showing the large ex

American consular reports fDr their in
The British press exnrasscs great
concern over the rapidly dwindling
supply cf reasonably cheap iron ore
for their blast turnaces. ine cniy
mines of any consequence that are
supplying the British demand today
are the Cleveland and the West Cum
berland mines, six otter formerly im
portant Scotch and English districts
being quoted as practically exhausted.
The British blast furnaces are , now
drawing their chief supplies from Bil
boa, Spain, 1,100 miles distant, and
from Swedish Lapland, 1,600 miles
off. Even these supplies, it is said, are
being rapidly drained, and the future
supply is looked for from even more
remote parts of Spain, and from mines
within the Arctic circle, that can be
worked only six months in the year.
The great increase in the sale of
American steel rails in Canada is al30
attracting attention. In 1898 this
trade was so small as not to receive
specific mention in the United States
export statistics. In the first nine
months of 1S98, however, 83,340 tom
were sent across the border, while the
total export of steel rails from the
United States from January to Septem
ber, 1898, were 222,973 tons. This, the
British paper just quoted says, with
anxiety, indicates that the Americans
are pushing into e.vcn mora distant ex
port fields than Canada, and points out
the exportation of 42,417 tons to
Japan up to September, 1893, as tear
ing out this proposition.
