TENCE AND GOT IT. Has Secured a Position Among the Na tlons of the Earth Which Money Could Never Buy Has Secur ed Much Good to Follow. New York. Aug. 31. That Japan baa achieved all she fought for and tho question of Indemnity was of minor Importance compared to tho establish ment of her position among tho na tion and other advantages gained was tho pinion of Baron Kanek!o, tho Japanese emperor's financial agent In thl- country, expressed tonight after he had received dispatches from Ports mouth confirming the published re ports of peace. ' Naturally," said Haron Kanoko, "1 cm quite pleased. Japan has achieved much. True, wo received no indemnity but compared with what we have gained the money matter becomes ot secondary Importance. Tho ponce of the world Is dear to Japan. She has achieved so much that I was not sur prised that our envoys waived the mere question of mouey when It stood between peace and war. "We fought for the national exist ence ot Japan. We have secured it Our petition In Sakhalin, lost years ago through diplomacy, has been re- f-Mabllslicd again at fifty degrees north lntltlude, its former boundary. wo are again possessed of the fisher ics through tho Behrlng sea. Wc have Port Arthur again, rightfully ours. Wc have the railways. In many ways wo have gained ranch. We have shown tho world that the pagan treatment of prisoners is as Immune as that of Christian nations, we have shown that Japan is entitled to be regarded as one of the powers to a seat at the table In the councils of nations all this Is of greater Importance to us than indemnity. Money could not buy us any one of these. Why, therefore, should wo permit money to stand in the way? We have not, nor did I think our envoys would. There may bo home disappointment at home, but I am sure that with the spartan for bearance that hal always characterlz-id our people, we will look at it. right.' Six-uldiiK of Jir.nuit, buuut. ihr baron said Japan .was well able to meet the expenses incident to the clos ing of the war and the withdrawal of her troops from the far east. She had $30,000,000 in Germany and a like sum both In Eirrland and In the United States as yet untouched. Her war taxes would, he said, talce caro of the national war loans, Thero might be ho admitted, some disappointment in Japan because no Indemnity was paid but ho thought the Japanese people re garded their victory as n grand one and would rIvc tho money question but llttlo thought. "Then, too," continued the baron, "tho history of nations shows that, a period ot prosperity follows a war. It was so with Japan after tho Chinese war. It was so with Germany and France, and It was so here follow lng tho Spanish war. In fact, after the Chinese war our business trebled. As to any clash between tho Japan rso and the United States for commcr clal supremacy In the far cast, Baron kaneko declared such n thing Impo sTol Asldo from the friendship ot tho two nations he said, the trade rela tlons were naturally reciprocal. Each possessed what the other hart not, and there could no no competition. "As to our policy as to China," said he, "Japan will never agree to a diS' membennent of China. Our Interests there nro Identical with those of this country and number of European na tlons. "Wo will preserve the Hay open ooor policy. Pauls Valley Will be "It," Pauls Valley, I. T Sept. 1.

Thero arc white persons who have married Into- the Choctaw and Chickasaw nations, and aro called "Intermarried Citizens."

Conditions In the Indian Territory are soon to be changed entirely, and prospective settlers will find this fer tile valley a field for safe and profitable Investment.

The Durant Commercial club met in extraordinary besslon la3t night. The meeting was called to consider the proposition of Issuing a call to the districts of In dlan Territory to send delegates to a single statehood convention at Durant, which convention shall be held for the purpose of discussing the advisability, way and means of submitting to a vote of the people of Indian Territory the question of statehood, whether we shall Join with Oklahoma or enter as a separate state. The club passed resolutions unani mously Indorsing tho calling of the convention and the chair, upon author Ity given him by the club, appointed W. D. Gtbbs, C. C. Hatchctt. A. P. Blackwell, W, T." Whltelatch and A. L. Severance as a committee of fives to Issue the call for tho convention, to ap portion delegates and fix tho date for holding tho convention In Durant. This committee Is in session today. It Is understood that tho committee will fix the date for the meeting about Sept. 20 or 2S. ' The secretary of the club, editor W. D. Gibbs, stated to tho club that Du rant has as much right to call such a convention as any other town of tho Territory, hence the early worm theory. Helatlve to the action of the Du rant Commercial club In taking prelim inary steps to call the statehood con vention R. L. Williams. Democratic National committeeman of Indian Ter ritory, said this morning. "I think that tho action of the clui) Is a mistake. Tills matter Is one that tho single statehood executive commit tee has exclusive Jurisdiction over and I do not think that tho single staters will pay any attention to the call of any Commercial club, I was not pros sent at tho meeting of tho club and I had no intlmattlon that the matter was to be brought up. I believe that the single statohood executive commit tee is looking after the interest nf sin gle statehood properly. It would be right and proper for a Commercial club to invito tho single staters to meet In a certain town in event that ho committee saw fit to call a meet ing in Indian Terrlory. but It not prop er for a commercial club to- call such a meeting."

Reported Improvement In tho condi tion of the cotton crop continues to reach Ardmore and there la some hope among the farmers and merchants that the Improvement will contlnuo and thnt there will be some recovery from the loss occasioned by the ravages of the boll worms. The Improvement no ticed has been slight, however, but far mers state that this beats a deteriora tion In the crop such as was predicted sSine two weeks ago when It was stated by many that the crop was go ing to ruin.

In some sections, he suys tho dnmnge will bo much greater than In others. He thinks that there in be a good yield In this section If con illt ions are anything like fair. A groat deal of tho lleeey staple has to be m-ade as yet and the only requirement Is good weather. Ituln Is needed Just at present. From J. F. Hughes of Marietta, a traveling man, It is karned that crop conditions In tho Cornish section are very satisfactory, tn the iino Grovo settlement some damage has been done.
