PEACE MU3C IlEIGN
Tho war situaliou is of a most
complicated nature Tho Cznr of
Russia lias jatknrod his ileots as
near to Oonstantiuoplo iw can to
done without a declaration of war
lie han ordered the nitnits of Bul
garia Sorvin and Rouuiania to lo
mobilized and has pushed eeveial
huudred of tlioueauds of men to tho
frontiers roady to porsuado tho
Sultan to listen to common sense
When roady with his preliminary
preparations ho sat down and wrote
a letter to the Sultan in which ho
asks his Imperial Majesty for
whom the white Czar always has
held a supervirtuous consideration
and love to uso moderation in the
dispute with Greoco and adopt tho
suggestion of Russia
Tho unspeakable Turk looked at
tho Russian nary and the armios and
realized the points of the claws in
the pawn of the Russian bear And
Turkey submitted and tho Sultan
wroto to tho Czar exprssing his
love and goodwill and consented to
do everything that His White Im
perial Majesty Bhould desire and
by tho next stoamor wa will mont
likely loaru that the Turkish Greek
war is onded thanks to tho peace
maker of Russia

THE TRKATY
Tho Stniito Bill and Hawaiian
Sufjnr
Washington- D 0 May 25
With trims noeuhfs sotting forth
tho various phases of tho question
tho tariff bill was to day launched
on its fourth ataac Many suggos
tions are taken from the address of
Senator Aldrioh but one point
which is of great iutorost to the
Pacific Coast is tho reforenno to tho
Hawaiian treaty
When the Sunator said that tho
committed would lator frame a sub
stitute for the reciprocity treaty
now in operation he gave notice
practically Hint an effort would bo
made to apply a two thirds duty to
Hawaiian sugar on tho linos pro
posed by Sonator Perkin3 iu tho
present bill
On this thoro will bo a most bitter
fight for tho New Englaud Senators
who havo always stood up for Ha
waii have served notice in caucus
that they will not give in until thoro
has been a party declaration against
them
There wat a disposition on the
part of Frye to oontiuuo the fight
on tho floor but it was shown that
any such move would endanger tho
safety of tho whole bill
While there woro two now pro
positions put boforo the Senate in
the shape of Pettigrows trust
amendment and Cannons agricul
tural export bounty tho most im
portant of tho main propositions is
yet to be submitted The general
rooiprooity clause is hold baok This
olauso differs in ono or two im
portant particulars from tho similar
clauso of tho MoKinloy law Tho
first portiou places a weapon in the
hands of tho President by which ho
can increase dutios 2b percent on
goods from any country which
chargos us auy greater duty than is
chnrgod othor countrios
This will apply to Cuba whoro
Spain ohargeB to tho United States
S11G a barrel on flour and herself
only 88 cents The provisions of
the clauso could bo applied without
serious friction but tho burden of
duty would bo sufficient to bring
tho country to torms Tho first
part of tho clause prevents discrimi
nation tho second encourages pre
ferential duties and fosters export
trade by enabling tho Presidont to
concede a discount of 25 porcout on
products of such countries ns give
us those advantages It is ex
pected to be a powerful faotor in en
couraging exports
Ono objootiou to tho rooiprooity
clauso has been that the Presidont
might seriously diminish tho values
Undor tho proposed clauso tho
rovonuo will not be affected Coun
trios whioh rofuse rooiprooity will
hayo to pay for it whilo thoso with
preferential duties will tako a larger
amount of our products
At a oauaus of tho Republican
moiibers of tho Fiuanco Committee
to night Perkins submitted an argu
ment for tho rotontion of the Senate
bill rates of duty on borax and soda
and it was decided that no change
would bo made Ho also wado a
strong ploa for replacing the duty
on olivo oil at the House bill rate of
CO cents a gallon a reduction being
made iu the SouAto bill to 85 cents
Tho committo will meet every
night aud Perkins will meet with it
to protect California itums He
says he has hopos of keeping every
ono at tho present figuros desired
