The Press' Splendid War News Service War invariably furnishes conspicuous opportunities for men who are Me; enough to grasp them, and the present far eastern crisis Is no exception to this rule. There is as much in the seeing of an opportunity as in the seising of it And because a few men have been big enough to both sec and seize the opportunity offered by the Russo-Japanese war, Tho Press is today able to present to its readers the first authentic war pictures actually taken at the scene of action from the very beginning of hostilities, thereby accomplishing tho most significant "beat" over its rivals in this field—one of the most significant in the history of journalism. The credit of this splendid achievement ia due to the men behind tho Newspaper Enterprise association, which is at once the youngest and the strongest newspaper syndicate In America today. Long before the gates or diplomacy were closed by the statesmen at Tokio and St. Petersburg— long before the dogs of war had actually been loosed for the struggle, the management of the Newspaper Enterprise association had completed ar rangements for doing just what it has done. And to this bit of ingenuity and enterprise tho readers of The Press are Indebted for the splendid Illus trative features and for the early and accurate account of the great events that are now of thrilling world-wide Interest. With utmost dispatch a force of war correspondents was sent out by the Newspaper Enterprise association at the first serious menace of war. These correspondents are from the foremost ranks of the nation's great newspaper men—men of the alertest judgment and balance that only comes through long experience. With their credentials thoy went immediately to the seat of war; taking with them a special photographer, who was furnished with a number of especially constructed cameras. The dispatching of these correspondents and the photographer was the first step taken by the News paper Enterprise association In the establishment of a system which has. at an outlay of thousands of dollars, been so perfected that there Is no Other in America that approaches it in the promptness, thoroughness and effectiveness with which It presents the great events now taking place in the portentous struggle betwei n the two nations at war. This plant Is now in operation under tlie direction of a trained force of editors and assistants, and the correspondence, cablegrams and lllustra tionos sent In by the Newspaper Enterprise association's men in the orient are handled by a special force of experienced men, who rush the matter through with such speed and thoroughness that not one moment Is lost from the time the messages and photographs are dispatched by the war Correspondents In the far east until they are placed ready for the reader into the hands of The Press, which Is only one in the great chain of clients obtaining news and pictures through their exclusive Newspaper Enterprise association franchise. From this time on and until the war is over. The Press will supply Its readers, through its connection with tho Newspaper Enterprise associa tion, with the finest illustrated war news and feature matter that money and enterprise can procure.

BRILL, SPECIAL COMMISSIONER AND TAB COR RESPONDENT OF THE NEWS PAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIA TION IN THE FAB EAST. TOKIO, March. 7. —Japan's declara tion of war against Kussia ba-s caused great surprise throughout the world, although the events of the past two months have In a measure prepared people for It. This surprise is due to the fact that very few peo ple outside of official circles have any idea of Japan or tho Japanese, or realize that the present war was as inevitable as the American revolu tion. With Russia the present conflict is a war of conquest; with Japan it is a war for existence. Jnpan has seen the shadow of the war hanging over her for a quarter of a century, itus-. sla has not believed that the little island empire would ever have the courage to declare war against the greatest military power in the world. There was no help for it. The Japanese have known it for years and have prepared for It. They have entered the war in a solemn spirit, with a full sense of its difficulties with its meaning, and they have en tered to win. A great deal has bean said and has been written in the last few years about the wonderful advance of these wonderful people, but the beginning has not yet been told. They know themselves; outsiders do not know them and never will, but they will have a much better Idea of them when the present was has been run ning a little winle. Tho present war Is the outcome of a very long diplomatic discussion. It began more than 20 years ago, when, In IKS 2, Japan sent a note to Russia containing the claim that Korea was In her natural sphere of Influence and asking tho Hoar to keep off. From that day Japan has seen the gradually growing war cloud on her horlaon and has known that some day the storm was bound to break. The war between Japan and China was a part of this very trouble. Japan captured Port Arthur, but was forced to give it up and sit cjutetly by while Russia gobbled up the fruits of a victory won by Jaixuieue arms. That was another nail that wont to inmpleto tho scaffold which Russia has been for ycara preparing for Ja pan's execution Russia's refusal, after repeated promises, to evacuate Manchurlu brought the matter to a head and her refusal to grant Japan's demands regarding Korea caused the cloud to break and prscipltutc what promises to be one of tho bitterest and longest wars of modem times. Japan can not cease lighting till she Is the victor or until she ceases to exist as a nation, and Russia's bulldog tenacity and her enormous re sources make the outlook for a short war almost nil. It is the belief In Japan that Rus- THE SPOKANE PRESS: MONDAY, MARCH 7* 1004. The Big Contest Is On. The Conditions. sla did not expect Japan to fight at this time. An American resident summed up a common opinion today when he said: "Russia was the most surprised na tion on earth when that J softness fleet, without warning, bobbed up at Port Arthur ami began to shoot. Rus sia isn't ready. She was merely try ing by diplomatic bickering to force a showdown of Japan's hand. To see how much of an army, navy and transport oulrit the Japanese could mobilize; how quickly and where and to measure her strength. More than that, she wanted to see Japan's diplo matic cards; to feel out Kngland and tho United States, and, perhaps, to see just how many friends tip' czar has among the powers of Ibe earth. Then she Intended to patch up some sort of a deal for temporary peace nnd so gain two or tnree years in which to double-track the Siberian railroad; get naval bases equipped nnd a big fleet In these waters. Then she would be In shape to crush Japan before the friends of tho little empire could In tervene. Hut Japan was too foxy to be caught at this game and knowing that sho could never be in bettor ahape for the war and Russia never In worse, she stopped talking and let lly at tho boar. It's tgolng to be a great scrap. WILL H. BRILL.
