the czar a position of dominance in
The southern half of Saghalien is
land is lost to Russia, an island over
which a few weeks ago she had full
sway and ownership.
Russia has been compelled, by force
of Japanese arms, to consent that all
nations shall have full trade facilities
in Manchuria, a privilege which she
formerly jealously withstood.
The czar's government refused be
fore the war to recognize any right of
Japan to seek influence and trade in
Korea. As a result of the war, Japan
is given a preponderant influence in
the Hermit Kingdom, with full power
to advise the emperor on all matters
pertaining to commerce and to war.
Russia has recognized Chinese own
ership of the Eastern railroad con
necting Port Arthur with Harbin.
This involves a retrocession to China
by Russia, of property rights, and
gives to Japan an opportunity to re
coup her finances.
The czar loses all influence in Man
churia, a province which his govern.
ment was absorbing.
Five Million Dallars' Damage in the

lack of water. The greater of each of
the six quarters of the city was de

at $5,000,000, only about one fourth of
which is insured. Thousands of per
sons are homeless.

Crop Prospects Good.
Crop prospects are good at the pres
ent time. Good growing weather dur- L
ing the irrigating season, has, in a
great measure, offset the influence of
late planting. Of course the acreage hi
will be somewhat reduced. but that w
may not be an unfavorable condition. a
The reports from Chicago and St. n
Louis are hopeful. In fact, from a ti
straight business outlook, it might be u
predicted that this would be a good ri
year for the planter. Yet we must re- h
member that "The Shadow of the w
Mill" has grown no brighter, but has tt
really assumed a deeper hue.
It was depicted in "The Farm and w
Ranch," that the merchant as well as a
the farmer, Svas shadowed by the mill, si
but now it happens that that shadow S
has been extended and darkened by ti
the addition of the bank. It seems I.
that when farmers' apply to banks as p
usual for loans, they are referred to
the mill. The security demanded by m
the mill is out of all proportion, fifty e
cents loan on a sack of rice, and the h
crop pledged to the mill for its handi- d
What the outcome of this system of
operating will be, it is hard to fore- t
tell. We hear socialism talked every
where, by one class with hope, by an
other with fear. It is hard to make t
slaves of good, straight, free Ameri- a
can citizens. They refused the sem- v
blance of slavery in 1775, and in 1776 t
declared their independence. When I
we see the encroachments of capital
and combinations on the legitimate
rewards of labor, we wonder "What e
will the harvest be?" JAS. ELLIS. I
Dr. Holt on Kohnke.
In recent speech in New Orleans Dr.
Joseph Holt, who for twenty years I
preserved that city from fever epidem- r
I its by establishing quarantine at the t
mouth of the river and compelling (
prompt reports of all suspicious cases t
as they appeared, took Drs. Kohnke I
and Slouchon severely to Vask for sup
pressing the truth as to the existance
of yellow fever for two months. Dr.
Holt openly charged both these ottici
ale with wilful and malicious suppres
e sion of facts and although the city pa
pers did not give full publicity to the
e speech and the serious declarations
made, Dr. Holt's address was printed
e in paml)hlet and distributed.
f Dr. Kohnke demanded an apology
and received the following spicy note:

In responce to your note this date

THE NEWS IN RUSSIA.
Rleport of the Nignllig of tile Treaty
Received With Apathy.
St. Petersburg, Sept. G;.-The news
of the signing at Portsm:outh of the
Treaty of Peace was received here
quietly and even with the same apathy
that has marked the attitude of the
Russian people throughout the war.
There was no demonstration and no
special means were adopted to make
the news known. No extra editions of
the newspapers were issued and a large
part of the population of St. Peters
burg will be ignorant of the final act
of the penipotentaries until they read
of it in this morning's newspapers.
Two or three of the newspapers this
morning publish the text of the treaty
as cabled from Portsmouth, but the
press generally seems to have made
no effort to chronicle the event which
has been discounted by the news of
the progress of the negotiations.
ONLY PRESIDENTS CAN ISSUE.
Certificates, Says Dr. Souchon, of the
Dr. A. J. Perkins, president of the
) city board of health, yesterday re
ceived a telegram from Dr. Souchon
stating that certificates of health
could be issued only by the presidents
of the parish and city health boards.
The telegram was sent by Dr. Souchon
in answer to one from Dr. Perkins
asking for headquarters information
2 on the point, as there seems to have
e been some misunderstanding of late
in regard to the issuance of certifi
cates.-Lake Charles Press.
