without significance in this connection
that her route has taken her via Bi vi

there is -no unfriendliness a"
ent moment between the Russian and
the German governments, and that if
Prince Henry stays out In the Pacific
it is not to combat Russian interests
which are now paramount at Pekin,
but that the purpose of his remaining
in the far east is in connection with the
future disposition of the Philippines.
The German papers here axe full of
articles describing tue enormous un
developed wealth of these islands, and
of the importance of German interests
there. In iact, through the officially
inspired press, the pupular mind is be
ing prepared for some important an
nouncement with regard to the;3 islanas
on the part of the kaiser.
Although the preparations for ?he
trip :o Palestine have not been counter
manded and the report that they had
been countermanded has even been
semi-officially denied, yet there are sev
eral features in connection with the
entire affair which lead to the belief
that at the last moment the tour will !
It. is indispensable that at a moment
so critical, at any rate, as far as for
eign affairs are concerned, some cap
able and responsible statesman should
be in charge of the department of for
eign affairs, especially if the kaiser
is absent and beyond reach. Yet the
foreign minister, Baron von Euelow, Is
under orders to accompany his sover
eign to Palestine; his assistant secre
tary of state, Baron Richthofen, is
away on sick leave, while Prince Ho
henlohe is too old and broken to un
dertake the duties of foreign minister
in addition to the heavy work ol his
own department. All this tends to the
belief in court circles that the emperor
will not go to Palestine, and that some
very sensational excuse ur reason willi
.be given for the abandonment of his)
plans at the last moment.
No little significance is attached here
to the fact that the Oregon, the Iowa
and their flotilla of colliers, etc., are
still detained in American waters, and
it is openly alleged in official circles
here that their detention is due to the
apprehension of the United States gov
ernment of trouble with Germany about

British Government Witnesses Another
Attempt to Intrude on Her Route to
London, Oct. 9.-The news which
reached here this morning, on what is
said to be trustworthy authority, that
Menelik, negus of Abyssinia, has come
to an arrangement with Russia where
by the latter country secure.! a coaling
station on the Red sea, is a matter of
more importance to the British govern
ment than at first appears.
The account of the negotiations which
led to the cession Indicates that the
methods used were those characteris
tic of Russian diplomacy. It has been
notorious for a considerable time past
that Russia and France were actively
Intriguing In Abyssinia, but thus far
Count Beontleff, the Russian emissary,
though he secured from the negus the
high-sounding title of "governor of
equatorial Africf," together with nomi
nal jurisdiction--along with Prince
Henry of OrJ . i-over a vast territory
which was not Menelik's to bestow, has
seemed to be doing nothing except to
sign empty treaties and squabble with
his Orleanist coadjutor.
Now, however, a tangible result ap
pears. On the debatable ground that
Italy has abandoned her north African
possessions. Leontieff has secured for
Russia what she so long has desired
a foothold on the Red sea.
When lately it was announced that
Russia had secured the cession of
Raheita, her object being to secure a
Red sea coaling station. Great Britain
plainly declared that the conce.^i >n
could not be permitted to stand. The
grab therefore was abandoned, and it
is not unlikely that the same fate may
overtake this latesf Russian acquisi
tion. England may welcome ' Italy if
that power pushes her sovereignty to
the Red sea coast; she may tolerate
Abyssinia, but she is bound, as ?, meas

As metropolitan In character as it ls
In appearance, the large dry goods store
of J. B. White & Co. (has grown to such
proportions that its enlargement was
as much a matter of necessity as or
choice In the last few years.
Fives stores of three stories each are
crowded with useful and ornamental
articles for wear and comfort. New
York trade with Augustans and those
from the surrounding country has an
able competitor in this establishment
that furnishes, at even less cost, every
article that Is required by a person,
either for themselves or their home. A
view of the store reveals an array
of goods of varied and vast propor
tions; counters upon counters piled high
with productions of the loom in silks
and worsteds of the newest weaves.
The question of dress is always an In
teresting one to women, and at this
season becomes more so than at others,
for, besides the tailor-made gown, lae
foundation of the winter wardrobe,
there is the more elaborate ene for
various occasions, as well as the even
ing dress. With a choice of cr?pons,
poplins, Guntram, Titian and Lepanto
cloths, broadcloth, Byson cloth, Lyola,
imperial surge, mixed cheviots, clay
worsteds and Venetian cloth in worsted
goods, and peau de tole, armours, taf
fetas and mervelleaus in silk the most
critical taste can be satisfied.
The cloak department in this store,
which was always one of its chief feat
ures, has been added to so that now lt
comprises two of the upper stories on
the second floor, extending almost the
entire length i f the building. This is
fitted up with all the conveniences that

is always a busy one witb housekeepers

tra amount of work in the replenishing
and furnishing of tbe home for the
winter season. This work becomes a
pleasure through purchases made it
White's, for there ls everything in their
furnishing department to add to the
attractiveness of the home. Artistic
taste has been brought to bear on these
selections and the bric-a-brlc and other
ornaments can be found in no other
score in the south outside of this. The
substantial admiration of the public
has been wen by the beautiful creations
of Italian marble. A -aew departure In

enormous amount of goods has been re
