urged the extension of our foreign mar- i

singular fad that the only great re-

with Cuba—was finally opposed almost ,
alone by the representatives of tie very i

the worth of our words be judged by i
comparing their deeds with ours. < >ti ,

thing in the negotiation and ratitieatlon
of the treaty, and In the legislation
which carried it into effect, was the
highlv practical manner in which with-
out sacrifice of principle these differ-

was no rupture of a great party but an
excellent practical outcome, the result
of the harmonious co-operation ol two

NOT QUITE UP TO NEW YORK
SINTSINTIN, MANCHTRIA: Si-
multaneously with the advance from
the south, the Japanese from the
north have pressed forward toward
tho west, as if to strike tlio railroad
south of Mukden. Hut the move U
not made by a heavy force, so far as
known, and it is thought scarcely pos-
sible that tho Japanese would dare
xtend such a line, leaving the
troops on the Russian left in a posi-
tion to flank them.
Notwithstanding the prophecies of
some of tho Manchurlan weather ex-
perts, there is only a* light ra'ny
season this year. Hain Is falling al-
most everywhere, however, and sev-
eral of the rivers are overflowing.
The question of provisioning the
troops will soon have to be faced by
the Japanese, as tho movement of
transport trains through the coun-
try is already almost impossible.

PRYOR CREEK: That Pryor

fact. The 125,000 bonus has been
raised and the notes and lots •ub-

It is said that work will be com-
menced soon, both at Pryor Creek
