At the same time they learned that the gold medal would he awarded to the com pany for Its exhibit of coal, coke, iron ore and Ironstone. If. however, the gold medal should be given to the company.

The Taylor state road, which may be a part of a great trans-continental high way, and which Mas been hangirig in ♦be balance for the past year because the funds appropriated by the Inst Leg islature were not forthcoming, is at Inst assured.

State En gineer McCune lias just returned to Denver from a trip over the proposed route of the road, starting at Glen wood and going through the canon of the Grand river. He sj»ent some time in GUmwood Springs with Senator Ed ward T. Taylor, who was the author of Hie lilll which was passed by the last Legislature and provides for an appro priation of 935.000 for the commence ment of the work. It was decided by the state engineer, after he had thor oughly discussed the matter with Sen ator Taylor that work be commenced as soon as possible at Glen wood Springs, the course being from that point to Dotsero through the canon of the Grand river, covering a distance of twi nty-flue miles. This will require about the heaviest work which must be done on the road, so that most of the further work will be much less ex pensive. The work of surveying the route through the canon will take a month or perhaps six weeks, and ac tual work will begin as soon as possi ble thereafter. It Is estimated that it will require about 917,0U0 fur this twenty-five-mile stretch. Most of the remainder of the 935,000, after the 917,- 000 road from Glen wood to Dotsero has l>eefi spent, will be used in road building on the east side of the Osnll- Acutal Divide.

Among the many bothers produced by the sudden expansion of our terri torial possessions is one which though not of any vital importance, still de serves a little- serious attention. Hith erto the terms "far East” aud “near East" have passed current with all English-speaking peoples in the sig nificance naturally allotted to them by the Britishers. The near East meant India and thereabout, and the far East meant the rest of the Orient. Including China, Japan, ths Philip pines, and the big islands lying to the west of them. Of course, strictly speaking, for Americans the custom ary s use of "far” and "Dear" has al ways been wrong, but we Had no per sonal Interest In thp matter, and for the sake of convenience foU In with the British fashion.
