Europn Don't I.lkn China. Japan Treaty
Perlin: Tbe Koelnische Zeitung
says: Since it was apparent that Japan
was not disposed to be moderate in
making demands against China, a move
was made to establish an understand
ing between tho powers. A complete
agreement was reached by Germany
and ilussia and tho co-operation of
France was secured. The three powers
will now proceed to take joint steps in
China to protect their interests. The
object is to prevent Japan from en
twining herself so tightly round China
so as to be able, in case of need, to
shut off the latter entirety from
Europe.
St. Petersburg: A scmi-oflicial note
has been issued to the newspapers here
to the effect that the Russian govern
ment is in no wise hatisiied with the
China-Japanese treaty, und will act iu
concert with other powers in protect
ing the" interests of Europe.
Paris: The Debatssnys: The Japan
ese occupation of Liao-Tong is a men
ace to both Pekin and Korea. It Japan
expects Russia to renounce her policy
toward Korea, she probably has made
a great mistake. Moreover, France
will not leave Kussia isolated in the
east, anc1 Germany is not disposed to
regard indifferently Japan's encroach
ments. Japan's conditions of peace
are immoderate. Her ambition ought
to be brought down at once England
will incur a grave responsibility if she
separate, herself from the rest of Europe
at this decisive moment.
Hawaii Kfam Japan.
Correspondence from Honolulu says
that Minister Thurston has arrived
from the United States and states that
there is no change whatever in his
orticial relations with Secretary (ires
ham, contrary to newspaper talk.
Col. V. V. Ashford has been pardoned
out of prison on condition that he

It is positively known that public
sentiment in Japan is strongly turned
in the direction of taking Hawaii.
While the native Hawaiian still con
stitute the largest nationality, 34,000
to the Japanese -3,000, the latter have
tho largest number of male adults,
being '0,000 to the natives 10.000.
There can bo no doubt that a small
Japanese squadron with 1.000 troops,
co-operating with the resident Japan
ese, could easily overcome any resist
ance possible for all the rest of t he
population of Hawaii to make. The
safety of this government against an
early conquest by Japan must be in
the protection of the United States.
Falling in that, appeal must bo made
to Pritish protection.

REVIEW OF TRADE.
Dun s says: In every upaeulatlve department
business in growing, but this Is really the least
satisfactory teuture of the situutlon. Cotton,
oil und whrtt climb above export price, so that
the marketing of products abroad must be
checked. .and money 1 absorbed which oiixhl to
be employed in productive industry and in dis
tribution of product to consumers. Kvery
bodv knoww thu oil has not risen 2)0 percent
because it is intrinsically more valuable, nor Is
wheat actually worth moro than It wus two or
three weeka atro. but the expansive an t uplift
lug force has unfortunately taken to specula
tion rather than ti production, and ho we have
higher prices in all speculative markets with
out a larger demand for consumption. Outside
of speculative markets, the lnost Important
featuro is tho rise in the price of beef, but
which is largely due to the control of sources
of supply by a few strouir corporations. Th?re
ousrhl to be. but apparently Is not. suOlcicnl
power In the hands of the government to meet
any such conspiracy against tne public, and
the proposal of Secretary Morton to admit
Mexican cattle and cattle from Canada on easy
terms for the ben'!t of consumers Is heartily
commended though It Is not likely to have
much inluence. in iron and steel the situation
ts rather disappointing. Tne cotton mills are.
encouraged by Improving prices and are fairly
busy. Sales of wool at the three chief eastern
markets and the production oi goods Is at
uresent lanrer tnan It has been at any other
time for nearly two yoars. failures the past
week in tho L. S. were 211 against 2 1 J last year.
