Is Russia Civilized?
Curious Point Raised In Treason
Trial In Germany.
A novel issue was raised in defense
of the nine men who are charged g
ivith treason against the Czar at E
It was submitted, states the Berlin
correspondent of the London Express, y
hat Rusisa is not a civilized State.
Phe defense offered to prove that the
Izar's government maintains agents
n the Balkans to create disturbances,
nd also that Russia was responsible
or the murder of King Alexander of~
lervia, and M. Stambuloff, of Bui
The prisoners, who .belong to Koenssberg
and other towns in the eastrn
provinces, are charged with havtg
smuggled treasonable literature
tto Russia. It was printed in Zurich g^
nd Geneva and circulated among the
Russian army. Tn some of the pa- ar
ers seized the soldiers were called
pon not to fire on the people if orsred
to do so.
The question was asked in court
hether Russia would reciprocate al'
russia's action by trying Prussians Fa
ho might be guilty of similar of- po
nses in Russia. A foreign official
ated that there was no treaty to
sure that Russia would. It is

ST. LOUIS, Aug- S.?One thousau<
* men. 100 teams, numerous slean
plows, scrapers and grading appli
' ances were put to work on the thirty
acres back of the Horticultural build
ing at the World's Fair. In the nexi
three weeks they will bring from the
rought, open ground'a series of model
barns and buildings for the live stock
show at the fair. The extent of thisone
enterprise in connection with
the World's Fair has nor been appreciated.
Little general exploitation
has been given to it?so little. In
fact, that there is no idea of its magnitude.
The work is in charge of Col. Clias.
F. Mills, and while he is willing to tell
any inquirer about it and insists that
every great live stock raiser and fancier
in the country knows all about
the shows to be given this fall, he
admits that the public up to this time
has no general idea of their extent.
It is expected that as soon as the
framework of the great sheds and
barns begin to rise there will be thousands
of curious visitors who will
stop to inquire their use.
Already four great dairy farms
have bean crecte-l and dairy tests
are in course. On the thirty acres of
space allotted to the balance of the
exhibits the force of workmen now
employed will build no less than
twenty-seven barns, each of them
about 70x30 feet. Their capacity will
not be less than 30,000 animals. In
addition to these a great amphitheater,
the largest which has even been
built for the purpose of exhibiting
cattle, is to be erected. The amphi
theater will be used entirely and exclusively
fpr the great live stock
shows. For the auctions and sales
there will be built a smaller ring or
The schedule for the different
shows is as follows: Horse show.
August 2G to September 3; cattle
show, for everything except southern
cattle and cattle in carload lots. September
12 to September 34; Southern
cattle and cattle in car load lots,
November 7 to 12; sheep, cats, dogs,
poultry, in October, on dates to be
announced later.
The late date for the Southern cattle
was chosen because of the fear of
Texas fever by other cattlemen from
other States. It was decided also to
have the car load lot cattle held back
so that the Texas and Southern cattle
would be able to compete with
them at the late date given.

J CLARKSBURG. \V. Va., Aug. 7.?
^ The Republican National committee
is planning to make an aggressive
. fight along original lines for control ;V
of the electoral vote of West Vir^
gin-la. The people will be asked to
state point blank if they think a
J change of administration would bot,
ter their condition.. There are few
Democrats who admit they ever previously
experienced such a prospei
ous period as now. They will be told
a vote against Roosevelt will be a
blow at tariff laws which, are responsible
for the wonderful development
of the State.
The people of West Virginia believe
iheir State is destined l>y nature to
.. . become
the greatest, in many respects j
in the Union. Possibilities perceived
by Henry G. Davis, now the target
ot the Republicans, were alt realized,
as evidenced by his enormous wealth.
Conditions which' Davis appreciated :
10 years ago are to-day awaiting the
enterprise and appreciation of young
men of this generation.
Chance For Great Development.
Hundreds ot miles of beautiful
virgin forests, untouched by the
stride of civilization, extend over
the area of this bountiful State. This
uiiuu vtriopea iauu ireasures minerals
representing fabulous wealth for the
individual Arm or corporation that ?
mines them. Some day the rugged
hills and beautiful valleys will be an :> .
annex to Pittsburg?the workshop of
the world. The picturesque "mountains
will lose their natural beauty
and there will be seen high piles of
timber, tanneries, the steam from
clanking engines and the rattling
sounds from the coal pits.
To-day millionaires have, options on
those rugged peaks. Behind the shaggy
hills and natural wildernesses
they have discovered wonderful possibilities.
Henry G. Davis, Senator
Stephen B. Elkins, and many of the
millionaires?the Stale Is famous fa
its large number , of . enormously
wealthy men?have secured options
on the coal-producing property of the
region. Land in the valleys can be
purchased for a trifling sum, but the
hills or mountains abandoned before . the
war by authorities of Virginia because
they wanted to get rid of what g
they believed to be worthless terrl- | ' *
tory will some day be the storage
place for fuel to supply steam, heat
and power for a great part of the
Real Boom Yet to Come.
Nothing is impossible in the way of
ileveloi>ment after one recollects the
beginning of Pittsburg. West Virginia
