Latimer in advocacy of tf-.e adop tion of a plan for the improvement of the public wagon roads of the country. lit. Newlands declared. th3t the course of the president in Panama was an act of wjr and in contravention of the treaty of IS-tS. of international law and the constitution of the United States. Mr. Depew prais;d th? presi dert's policy as patriotic and justified by i-recedent and law. The considera tion of the postoffice investigation res olutions was postponed until next Mon day. In hip remarks on Panama Mr. New lands conceded that the president had not been bound, because a reasonable time had not elapsed, to turn from the Panama to the Nicaragua n route. He p-iso assented to the proposition- tbit the t'r.lted States had a grievance aeralnst Colombia on account of the re jection of the Hay-Herra.n treaty. Put h contended that the action of the Vnited States in preventing the lauding of Colombian troops in Panama was in tervention that amounted to a declara tion of war. He said also that our dealings with Colombia in Panama affairs had been in deiogation of the treaty of 1846 be tween the TTnited States and New Gra nada. He discussed at length the pro visions of that treaty and engaged in a controversy with Mr. Spconer as to the guaranty of the right of transit. Mr. Nowlands contended that thia T.iaranty did not go to the extent of landing troops for the purpose of at tacking Colombia's fovereignty. If there ha.d been a cause for grievance the question should, under the terms of thf treaty, been diplomatically present ed and satisfaction asked. Then, and rot uit:l then, might there have been a resort to war. A PLACE NEEDS FIXING. Washington, Jan. 14.

Teople who do not str.dy the sub ject sometimes get the idea that Grape Nuts Is a medicine whereas it is a pure cereal food made upon scientific prin ciples and contains no medicine what ever.

"I am a brain worker and re sorted to the habit of drinking strong black colfee for lunch to 'tone me up' as I expressed it and the result was that although I ate a great deal of food I grew thinner and browner until my friends told me I really looked like an over-roasted coffee bean myself. Then I began the use of Grape-Nuts food and and gave up coffee for I found that Grape-Nuts gave me all the toning up that was necessary and there was no bail reaction from this food as there is from coffee. I am stronger, better and healthier in every way and my brain is much clearer t.nd more active since I began the us of Grape-Nuts. The yellow look has almost left me and my friends assure me that I am actually growing fat. "I first learned of Grape-Nuts through a lady fried who uses it regu larly for breakfast for her two littl- girls. I had know them only as puny sickly littje children and was surprised at the change in them for now they are a pair of the strongest healthiest girls I ever saw.

PEACEFUL CZAR If He Can Prevent It, There Will Be No War NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS Exchange of Holiday Sentiment at the Winter Palace Reception At the Same Time, the Situation Does Not Seem, to Outsiders, Very Hopeful. St. Petersburg, Jan. 14. "I .desire and intend to do all in my power to maintain peace in the far east. " These words the czar spoke to the members of th diplomatic corps at the New Year's rfeception held in the Winter Palace at noon today. Keen curiosity was exhibited all over the room when his majesty approached Mr. Kurino, the Japanese minister to Russia. The conversation between th czar and the minister was cordial an 1 xtended. His majesty emphasized the high value which he placed upon the good and neighborly re'ations between Japan and Russia, not only now, but in the future, and he expressed his un shaken hope that a mutually satisfac tory sett lenient of the difficulties be tween the two countries would be ar ranged. It having become known that Count Cas'.ini had been instructed to assure the United States that Russia would not interpose objections to the com mercial treaty between China and th United States or impede American rights or interests in Manchuria: tho czar referred to these instructions in a lengthy conversation with Ambassa dor McCormick and laid much stress on hU desire that Russia nd h& United Slates could live on terms ft intimate and cordial friendship, which had existed lor so many years and which he especially wished to main tain. He emphatically disclaimed the slightest inclination to hinder the de velopment of American commerce. Ambassador McCoimick inquired con cernin che czarina, and learned that her recovery was proceeding and that no concern was felt regarding her coidition. TCKIO'S GLOOMY VIEW. Washington. Jan. 14. The Japanese? minister. Takahira. today called on .Secretary Hay and informed him that the reply to the latest Russian note had been delivered this morning. The reply amounts to a denial of all the Important Russian proposals and sets forth Japai.'s counter proposals, which, it is said, arf. of a nature that will likely make lhm unacceptable to Rus sia. There.'oro the most pessimistic view of the future is taken at Tokio. On the other hand advices that como to the state department from Paris. St. Petersburg and 'Berlin are all of a pacific character. The Japanese min ister has supplied the state department ar- abstract of the latest Japanese note. Count Cassini. the Russian am bassador, on his part, has acquainted the state department verbally, as is his custom, with the nature of the Russian not", so that the department is fuily informed, but as both these communi liitions have been made in confidence, otlicials do not feel that they should make them public. It is said that there has been no substantial change in the Japanese proposal or the Russiar counter proposal since they were sent out by Associated Press in a semi official dispatch last week. NEGOTIATIONS TO CONTINUE. St. Petersburg, Jan. 14. Mr. Kurino, the Japanese minister, informed the Associated Press that the Japanese re ply had been handed to Baron ' Rosen, the Russian minister at Tokio. and that he (Mr. Kurino) would pre sent to Count Bansdorff, the Russian foreign minister, a duplicate copy. The minister Faid he was not au thorized to state the terms of the re ply, but that it insured a continuance .jf the negotiations concerning the far east so far as Japan was concerned. MODERATION OF JAPAN. Tokio. Jan. 14. The situation here Is apparently unchanged. It is reported that a majority of the powers recog nize Japan's demand as being most moderate. While it is admitted here that the wr.r party :s now dominant in St. Pet-Tsburg a faint hope is en tertained, that Russia at the last moment will make adequate conces sions. , TROOPS FROM THE SOUTH.

STEP NEARER WAR. London. Jan. 14. P.ritish foreign of fice officials said tonight after reading the Japanese reply to the last Rus- iSian note, that it only lakes the crisis ja step further in a less hopeful direc I tion. Advices received at the foreign office made them fear Russia would not accent Japan's reiterated demands. FRIENDLY ADVICE. Paris. Jan. 14. The intention on the part of certain European powers to yreveut an actual conflict between Rus sia and Japan Oias begun to assume definite proportions. The cabinets of London and Paris have decided, in the event war becomes Imminent, to make a tender of their good offices. This, will consist mainly in giving friendly advice for the maintenance of peace. The opinion today continue to be that the parlies themselves will succeed in a-verting a conflict, and until it is man ifest that they are unable to do so, no outside action will be taken. i o FOREIGNERS THREATENED.

THE CATTLEMEN Endorse the Policy of the Administration in Panama NO DISSENTING VOICE The Next to the Last Day of the Con vention Devoted to Criticisms of the Railroads and the Government's Forest Reserve Policy. Portland, Ore., Jan. 14. By a unani mous vote and with a great show of enthusiasm, the national live stock I convention today adopted resolutions 'heartily endorsing the policy of Presi dent Roosevelt with reference to the building of the Panama canal. When i President Springer introduced the re solutions, he alluded to the discussion of the Panama question in the United States .senate and the criticism of President Roosevelt on account of the position he had taken. The call for a vote was a signal for a roar of "ayes" and a burst of upplause. Not a dis senting voice was raised. A copy cf the resolution was immediately wired to the president. Today the subjects of railroads and forest reserves were considered in re lation to their effect upon the live stock industry. A shortage of cars, slow time in transit, and high tariff formed the burden ot a number of addresses bear ing upon the first mentioned subject. That legislation might be had remedy ing the exclusion of the stockmen from the forest reserves, was the demand of every speaker on the public lar. 1 subject. Tomorrow the' attention of the con vention will be given to the election of oflieers for the ensuing year and the selection of a place to hold the next convention. The executive com mittee will report nominations for oTicerrf at the morning session. F. J. Hagenbarth, of Idaho, is tho only one talked of as the successor to I'resident Springer and his election is considered certain. The general ini' pression is that there will be no change in the list of other officers, the in cumbents to be re-ele; ted. ' There is little doubt that Den ver will be the next place of meeting. San Jose. California and El Paso. Tex., have been making a fight for the con vention, but i is Uiought a compro mise is to be made whereby the next convention will go to Denver, that of 1905, to Kl Paso and the succeeding meetings to, Denver, as permanent headquarters. The business of the seventh annual convention will come ta a close with the selection of a place Of meeting. A paper by B. F. Saunders, of Tf-xas. on the -topic "Are Railroads Fair to Stoi k Raisers?" was read at the morning session by F. P. John son. .Mr. Saunders held that the ac tion of the railroads in relation to live stock inteostr to be responsible in a large measure for the demoralized con dition of the range business. The speaker stated that when there was competition between the roads, the stock men fared better, but the pres ent mergers and combinations leave the stock man without recourse. President Spring-jr. in opening the afternoon session, stated that what the stockmen wanted and must have if the railroad companies continue to with hold passes, is an elective" railroad commission. The railroads do not wriPt that system, he said, because they know, what it means, because they hae seen what has been accom plished thereby. Saiil he: "If the railroads insist on opposing us. we will appoint an elec tive committee in every state west of the Mississippi river. We have had to spend money to learn a few things but we have learned them. We have learned that we have power and can use it." J. C. Stubbs, of Nevada, delivered an address on the subject. "What Shall We Do With Our Grazing Lands?'" Governor Heber Wells, of Utai, was 'ntroduced and delivered an address on the topic, "The Policy of the Govern per acre, if taken immediately, will buy one of the best ranches in the valley.

Newell, chief hydrographer of the geological survey addressed the con vention in behalf of the commission appointed by President Roosevelt to investigate the conditions existing rel ative to the public lands. Mr. Newel! admitted that the lime has come when something must be done relative to this matter. Professor Gifford Pinchet gave the convention some of his views -on foresl reserves and B. B. Brooks of Wyoming advocated state control of the reserves and the issuance of grazing permits by the state. A resolution was adopted expressing! the thanks of the convention to Presl- ! dent Roosevelt for his continued In terest in behalf of the live stock in terests. Jerry Simpson the next speaker j expressea nimseu as strongly in ravor of the leasing of public lands. He thought it offered the on'.y solution to the situation that the live stock in dustry now faces.

Washington, D. C, Jan. 14. (Spe cial.) Delegate Wilson had a field day for Arizona statehood before the house committee on teriitories today. He oc cupied the floor of the committee at Loth morning and afternoon sessions He began his argument by giving th population and financial condition of the original s-tates of the union' at th" , time of their admission, in order to show what the fathers of the country intended from a legislative standioint as a requisite for statehood. The ordinance of 17S7 requiring a population of 60.000 free inhabitants as a r;qu'rement for statehood waa also cited" in this connection as were also the treaties with France. Spain an 1 Mexico, which required the territory acquired from them to made Into states as soon as conditions warranted. Thirty-two states, from Vermont t Utah, were admitted in .accordance with these requirements.
