The United States becise of its poli
cy respecting the demand for new
treaty ports in Manchuria has assumJd
an attitude toward Russia which So
lates it in a sense from all the oter
interested powers. There can be no
doubt that the Russian occupation.of
Manchuria foreshadows the partition
of the Middle Kingdom. Germany
seems to be content with her strong
hold in Shangtping, and France Is ready
for the spoIls of war in Yunnan. With
Russia, then, the dominant power in
north China and England as yet evine
ing no disposition to interfere forcibly,
only Japan remains to insist, unless the
Uhited States finds a peaceable, yet ef
fective, way to do it, upon a speedy
solution of the mienacing situatiop in
Manchuria. Japan's posilble means of
resistance to the Russian policy seems,
only those of war, while ours may be
the more effective for being of the
moral sort.
The Washington government has
clearly given Russia to understand that
our interests and desires are wholly
against the disruption of the Chinese
empire and on the side of commercial
freedom in the entire orient. What
should be our attitude and action in
the event of a clash between-Russia
and Japan is a grave question. That
we should appear as an active ally of
Japan and possibly of England in
actual hostilities seems out of the
uestion.~ The ganme would not be
worth so costly a candle.
Strikes and Government Ownership.
The government of Victoria, Austra
lia, has just won a victory over a rail
road union which is likely to have far
reaching consequences.
Early In May all the engineers and
firemen employed on the state railroad
lines, 1,800 In all, struck work at mid
night; many of them leaving their en
gines at all sorts of dangerous points
on the road. They expected that all
traffic would be paralyzed and that
all demands would be granted to them
as masters of the situation. They were
encouraged in their view by the fact
that in Western Australia and in New
South Wales similar strikes had- end
ed In the complete defeat and surren
der of tihe authorIties.
After the strike had continued for
some tiflho the p)remier summoned
parliament and declared that thu
strikers, as paid servants of the state,
were in practical revolt agaInst the
state, and he asked to ,be endowed
with sufficient authority to employ the
most drastic measures to bring the
rebels to terms. The temper of tho
Victoria-n parlainient was such that he
certainly would have secured all the
powers lhe asked foir, brit before action
could be taken the unionists, alarmed
at the position 'iin which they found
themselves, promptly surrendered and
- hurried back to work.
The attitude taken by the Victorian
premier is slgnificant and Interesting
as touching one phase of the question
of the government ownership of rail
ways and Indicating what course might
be pursued elsewhere under similar

Col. Orr, Pre idE'it of the PIednoot Mii,

Greenvill, JulyI 17-ol. Janesi
L. Orr, president ol the Piedmsmt
Man ufsbturifigCompany, and one
of the best known and most up-to.
date cotton mill menl in the South,
returned- this afternoon from the
Sapphire country, in Western
North Carolina, whero he has
made a careful investigation of the
famous froxaway damn. Ile ex.
preshed the opinion that the struot
uro is not secure. If the water,
from ~ excessive rains or imolting
-suows, sh:o1ild rise above the sur
face of the dam, he said, the struct
uro would beeoipletoly demolisli
ed in tivo hours, and the waters
would. work. destruction upon the
valleys below.
Col. Orr gave it as his opinion
that expert engineers should be
sent to make a thorough examina
tion of the dam, and give a report
of the actual cotidition of affairs.
It is said that grave apprehension
exists in the sections of country
which are at the mercy of the
mountain waters.
The Toxaway dam is 27 miles in
circumference. In many places the
water is fifty feet deep. Shculd
this mighty volume ever escape,
there-would be another Johnstown
horror. It would crush the Seneca
river trestles on the Southern and
Blue Ridge, into kindling wood
and it would sweep away the dam
at Portman Shoals; near Anderson,
which is considered the most pow.
erful structure of the kind in the
State. The wild rush of water
would find an outlet in the Savan
nah river and would flood the city
of Augusta. There is so milch at
stake, so many thousands of acres
of farming land to be destroyed,
that the people who stand to lose
everything will not feet secure un
til: they receive the information
which will be supplied by engin
eers of ability and -integrity.
There is no desire to injure the
owners of Toxaway, but men whose
millioifa can to wrecked in a night,
want to know the truth. And
they expect to get this at any cost.
According to newspaper and
other reports, the dam is mightily
built of stone. From other sources,
however, it is'laimed that nothing
stronger than a bed of earth holds
the billions and billions of tonis of
The entire country along the
streams which have their fountain
head in the Sapphire country, were
alarmed mn the recent storm days
when reports camne that Tloxaway
was doomed. Foi nearly twenty
four hours the suspense was terri
.ble.- The people realized what a
calamity of that kind would mean,
and there was rejoicing wvhen it
was known that the dam structure
was intact. Since that time, how.
ever, the 6wners of property which
would be at the mercy of any over~
flow, have soen the impor tance of
making an investigation. Thl~is is
the only way by which the situo
tion can be relieved, and if it is
shown that the dam is unsafe,
there must he some remedy at law
which will give the people the pro
tection they desire.
