FOOD SI FPLY MAY CAUSE FRICTION America Is Watenlna; Efforts to De fine Contraband of War. WASHINGTON. Feb. 22.-Ofnclal here ra apprehensive that friction may follow the efforts of belligerents to define contra band of war In a manner Injurious to American trade. While the matter has not yet been treated In the negotiations had with Russia and Japan on the one side and the United Btates on the other, there Is reason (d believe that some of the Euro pean power already have been confronted with threatened restrictions upon their trade, sfhlch they are disposed to resist. A vast quantity of American foodstuff la now afloat destined for both Russia and Japan and It Is probable that the question will be -very speedily raised as to whether or not the supplies are rontraband of war. The United States has In recent years In sisted that foodstuffs were not contraband and could not be seised by a belligerent unless It were shown that the goods were consigned to or clearly Intended for a bel ligerent. This principal was recognised by the British government during the Trans, vaal war and the courts awarded consid erable sum's of money to American shippers for food seised by British warships. The State department has heard nothing whatever from United States Consul Miller at New Chwang touching the troubles he has had with the Russian officials In en deavoring to carry out the department's Instructions to look after Japanese Inter ests at that port. It Is said that if these officials are supported by their government In obstructing the. American consul In. the discharge of this humgne duty the depart ment can do nothing further. The State department has learned through Mr. Emery, the vice and deputy consul at Che Foo, that the Russian gov ernment hag undertaken the transportation of the Japanese refugees who were at New Chwang or were hound for that port from Interior Manchuria ta Port Arthur and Dalny. Consul Miller is thus deprived of an opportunity to extend protection to more than a very few remaining Japanese. Th purpose of the Russian government in mak- WINES, CORDIALS AND EXTRACTS oi;cod liyer oil act about the same on a weakened system as a cocktail does on an empty stomach. If any good is accomplished in either case the medical world has- yet . to . find it out. The reason Scott's Emulsion affords effec tive and. permanent relief and cure in all wasting diseases is because it re stores health 'through nourishment, not through jdcoholic stimulation.

It Is understood that New Chwang and the line of railroad connecting It with Harbin on the north and Port Arthur to the south are especial objects of solicitude, as thero are still many weak spots In the scheme of defense which the Russians desire to conceal. The samo desire to prevent Information leaking out respecting what Is going on In Manchuria Is said to be back of the Rus sian refusal to receive Edwin Morgan as United States consul at Dalny, Mr. Mor gan la to sail next Friday from San Fran rlsco for the east and will remain at Shanghai until It Is determined, by the course of events, whether he may proceed to his post. United States Minister Griscom cables as follows from Toklo: It has been suggested by the War office at Toklo thst our army officers to accom pany the. Japanese srmy had better go to Toklo, where they will be sent out with the various armies at different times. SI.OW RAILROADS MENACE Rt SSIA. Military Organ Advises Japanese to strike. Heart of Manehnrla. BERLIN. Feb. 22.-The Militar Wochen blatt, the organ of - th German general staff, has published an article discussing Russia's prospects of reinforcing her army In East Asia. The paper takes a pessi mistic view 6f th capacity of the trans, siberlan railroad, and especially of the Section crossing Lake Baikal, where It says the difficulties to be overcome are enormous. The limited capacity- of the line Is sold to b a much more serious matter than .the . threatened da moos t it by na- t VM ....... . Th paper estimates the .present troop- moving capacity of the railroad from Rus sia's experience of last summer In moving two brigade to Tschlta, cast of Lake Baikal, which was only accomplished at the rata of eight and a half miles an hour. At this rate It would take thirty six days to convey 26,000 men from the Ural mountains to Mukden or Vladivo stok. The paper assumes the present strength of the Russian army In eastern Asia to be 158,761 men, and upon the foregoing es timate of the time required to move troops, It declares It will take until April 20 for Russia to raise the strength o her east Asiatic army to 133,000 men. The Mllltar Wochenblatt Is of the opin ion that the easiest thing for Japan to do to compel Russia to abandon Manchuria Is to strike at the center of th country, or, In other words. Concentrate tr ' forces' against Harbin. ."' - FOOD IS SCARCE AT VLADIVOSTOK Civilian Ordered to I;t aa Soldier 'Need Supplies. NAGASAKI, Feb. 22.

Brents Moving So Rapidly la Orient aid Kmercenrles May Arise. WASHINGTON, Feb. 22-Naval officials are considering earnestly the strengthening of the American Asiatic fleet In view of the vast Interests of this country In the Phil ippines and In China and Corea and the probability that disturbances may necessi tate their protection at any time. At the same time that the fleet Is regarded as too small there Is a desire to avoid exciting the suspicion of the old world powers lest this government may be put In the false light of Interfering In the eastern struggle. A high naval officer tonight said: The need of Increasing- the Asiatic fleet has long been felt. It was Intended that the new battleship Ohio, building at San Francisco, should be sent to the Asiatic station in the spring and that It should be followed there by the armored cruiser South LhUtota and the protected cruiser Milwaukee a soon as these vessels are completed. The Ohio will not be ready before autumn and we Hre considering the disat('h of another battleship. It has been suggested that the Iowa be selected for this mission, but no decision has been reached. It is now receiving rush repairs at the New York navy yard. In addition the Tacoma is tentatively se lected to go to Asia as the relief of one of the vessels of the cruiser squadron, but under present circumstances It Is believed that none of the cruiser squadron will be brought home, however many ships are added to It. It also has been suggested that the New York, now at Panama, be returned to the Asiatic station and that It make the cruise with the Tacoma. This Is understood snd the uncertainty of the Panama situation together with the fact that the New York Is due for a thorough overhauling rather militates against sending that vessel to Join Admiral Kvans. So rapidly are events moving In the east that it Is Impossible to say what move In the Asiatic station the next day's developments will demand. It was , , ,, .ueaested that the battleship squadron go up to Che Foo, but this was not approved snd an order was tssued for the battleships to remain In Philippine waters and for the cruiser squadron to assemble at Pnnnghal. Repairs to the valves of the Kentucky, the flsgsl'ln of the Asiatic station, however. vnv r--e-sitated the sending of that ship to Hnng Kong to be docked, and It is proname me other ships of the squadron, the battle ships Oregon and Wisconsin, will accom pany 1t. Meantime, the cruisers will be used to keen In communication with our agents at New Chwang, Che Foo, Che mulpo and Seoul. Rear Admiral Evans has cabled the navy department expressing a wish to remain In the far cast for the present, In the evept that the Kentucky Is not to be brought home when repaired. He feels that the situation is extremely Important out there and for this reason offers to remain, although his time of sea duty Is up next month, and the plan Is for htm to return to New York In his flagship. The department has cabled him, leaving the matter entirely to his own Judgment and the announcement was made tonight by a high official that the department had every confidence In Admiral Evans' de cision. LOCATION OF AMERICAN VESSELS. A Far a Possible They Are Taken from War Zone. WASHINGTON, Feb. 22. The battleship Kentucky; flagship of the American Asiatic fleet, has been ordered to Hong Kong, where it Will be docked for the purpose of making minor repairs. It is regarded as probable that Admiral Evan will hav the remainder of th battleship squadron ac company him to Hong Kong, although he has not advised the department . to this effect . It la not intended at present that th battleships. shall go no further north. .The double turreted monitors Monadnock and Monterey, also a part of the battleship squadron, are at Shanghai and Canton, China, respectively. The cruiser New Or leans and the gunboat Wilmington have been recalled from Che roe lest their pres ence there might be resented by one of the belligerents and are on their way to Shang hai, where the Raleigh Is awaiting the ar rival of the remainder of the cruiser squadron. The cruiser Cincinnati is In Philippine waters under orders for Shang hai and the San Francisco reported Satur day at Bombay, India, on Its way to Chi nese waters. Rear Admiral Evan has distributed the gunboat division which Is attached to the battleship squadron as follows: The Callao was last reported at Canton, the El Caney at Nanking, th Helena In mud dock at Nluchwang, th Vlcksburg at Chemulpo, Corea, and the VUlalobo at Hankow. Of the Philippine squadron of gunboat Rear Admiral Stirling command ing, the Annapolis and the Frollo are at Shanghai and th remainder in Philippine water. fif thA fleet auxiliaries, according to week-end' reports,' th collier Pompey I at Chemulpo and the supply ship Seraftno is on it way to Cavite.

MEETS OLD NEIGHBORS AND TRIENDS Reviews situation In the Philippine Archipelago and Hays It Is the Coantry for Edacated Young Men. CINCINNATI. Feb. 22. Secretary of War W."H. Tsft has been the guest here of his brother, Hon. Charles P. Taft, proprietor of the Times-Star, since .h attended the Hanna obsequies at Cluvelnnd last Friday. During that time he has been the guest of honor at a series of receptions, includ ing social functions at the residence of Charles P. Taft and a public reception at the Royal Legion State headquarters this afternoon. The closing event before Sec retary Taft returns to Washington tomor row was a complimentary dinner given at the United 8tates hotel, at which 260 plates were laid nnd the floral and general ap pointments were elaborate. Following this meeting Secretary Taft met many neighbors and lifelong friends. AH the occasions were nonpartisan and especially the brilliant banquet tonight, at which Edward Colston, a one-armed confed erate and leading democratic attorney, was toastmaster,, while the leading address was by Judge Judson Harmon, attorney general In the Cleveland administration. Among the other responses were those of Mayor Julius Flelschmann. Hon. W. B. Mellsh of the Cincinnati water works commission and General Michael Ryan, who was United States subtreasurer at Clnolnnatl tinder the Cleveland administration and quarter master general under the democratic ad ministration of Governor Hoadley. While Secretary Taft referred to the complimentary references of all who pre ceded him, he gave special attention to the remarks of Judge Harmon. When Harmon resigned as superior Judge sixteen yenrs ago Secretary Taft was appointed by Gov ernor Foraker to the vacancy and after ward by President Harrison as Judgo of the United States court of appeals. Ho re viewed the pleasant associations of over a decade In those capacities with the speakers who had preceded him snd the Cincinnati attorneys, who were' so largely represented on this occasion. Judge Har mon being an expansionist, he showed how lifelong personal friends honestly differ on matters of publio policy. He predicted a great future not only for the archipelago, but also for this country In the trade relations that are yet In In fancy. Little American capital ha yet been invested there, the Manila railway being the chief Investment. He insisted that the opportunity for American capital and for young men of education was great in the Philippines and predicted that all would bo surprised fit tho exhibits of the Philippine exhibit at the St. Louis fair. CONFLICT OVER IRRIGATION Wyoming? Officials Deny They Ara Ilamperina; the Govern ment Project. CHEYENNE, Wyo., Feb, C (Special.) So much has been said and written about the Shoshone Irrigation project, which the general government proposes to construct, and the alleged conflict between the state authorities and the reclamation bureau, your correspondent has investigated the matter carefully and has obtained the fol lowing statement of the facts from a lead ing state official: 1 "In the first placn, sold the official. "there Is no oonflict, nor lr, there liable to be. The tract proposed to be Irrigated by the government has been segregated to the state under the provisions of the Carey act. Cody & Salisbury defrayed the expenses of the clglnal survey and planned to reclaim the tract of HO.000 acres some years ago. Owing t deh.y In se curing the necessary capital and entering into a contract with the state for the con struction of Irrigation works, but little actual work has been accomplished. A temporary title to the land therefore re mains In the state. "Colonel Cody wa recently Induced to withdraw In hopes that the government would proceed and build the necessary canals and reservoirs. Whatever right he may have potsessed he has relinquished to the state and not to the general gov ernment as has been reported In Washing, ton dispatches. This relinquishment Is now In the governor's office together with the permit for water. "Another and larger project, the Oregon Basin proposition, proposing to divert wa ter from the Shoshone river, Is - now planned under the provisions of the Carey act. The secretary of the Interior has re cently Instituted a practice of referring all prcjects under the Carey act to Mr. Newell, chief of the reclamation service. Mr. Newell has the power to stop progress under any project he so desires. He has reported unfavorably on one of the land lists In the Oregon Basin segregation. This report went to the commissioner of the general land office and from there to the State Land Board of Wyoming. The Land Board ha complied with ell of the re quirements set forth In the letter from the commissioner of the general land office and has returned th list of lands for final action. All that the State Land Board asks Is that the reclamation service approve th Oregon Basin project. Final approval rests with the general land office and with the secretary of the Interior. "Owing to the misunderstanding and un certainties which seem to exist Thos. T. Tynan, secretary of the State Land Board, has gone to Washington to confer with the officers of the Interior department, and It Is believed that a speedy settlement will be reached and that both projects will b carried to early completion. 'Contrary to the general Impression, there Is enough water In th Shoshone, It properly stored and used, to thoroughly re claim all of the land proposed to be Irri gated by both propositions."

D.. known among Amer lean scientists as an authority on this rare metal, Is the experimenter. A theory to tho effect that there Is growth In the life of matter In the physical world has been made a special study by Prof. Mllllkan. He says: "Studies on radi ation have suggested the question whether there Is any natural process which does among the atoms what the life process does among the molecules, namely, which takes the slmplet forms and builds them up again Into more complex forms. The fact that radium now exists In the earth, taken with the fact that the life of radium Is Bhort In compurlson with the ages thut the earth has been In existence, certainly eems to point to an affirmative answer."
