Houses, people and cattle were swept away in the rush of waters. Synopsis of Russian Noto. Franco Dilays, Washington, D. C., Jan. is an- nounced that Secretary Hay has made an international move the highest importance, which is designed to pre- sent any attack upon the territorial integrity of China or the maintenance of the open door in that empire. On Friday last Secretary Hay cabled instructions to the ambassadors of the United States abroad, directing them to ask formally of the governments to which they respectively are accredited they still favor the observance of this policy. abolition Replies were'received yesterday and slntr laid oefore the president from Ambas- sador Choate, in London; Ambassador Tower, in Berlin, and Ambassador vou Meyer, in Rome. The responses p'rac.- .tically are identical, -each power de- claring "that-it earnestly desires that China's integrity shall be respected and that there shall bo no attenipt. made to close the trading door in any pan of the empire. Prance has not yet been heard from, and her .answer is delayed, it is ex- plained, because ot the wish ot M. Del- casse, minister of foreign affairs of the republic, to consult, with'the Russian government and also because the fall of the Combes ministry and tho indis- position of those in temporary power to handicap their successors. In view of the past pledges made by tho Paris government, however, no douibt exists that it will fall into line with the oth- er powers. FORESTALLS RUSSIAN NOTE. 'Mr. Hay's action did not follow the presentation of the Russian note stat- ing that because of the failure of China to maintain neutrality she was deter- mined to reserve for herself such of procedure -with respect to prosecution of the war ia Chincsfe ter- ritory as might lie deemed advisable. It was determined upon even before Count Cassiui delivered the notifica- tion to this government. The slate department was actuated, however, ;by information indicating that Russia was about to make some such move, and it was therefore decid- ed that American interests, as well as those of the whole world, demanded a reiteration of the purpose of the powers to uphold the principles of ter- ritorial integrity and equality of op- portunity in China. When the replies of all the groat powers are received they will be sub- mitted to the belligerent nations and it is expected that they will exercise a momentous moral effect upon them. "It is nob said a high official today, "that either Russia or will menace either of these im- portant principles when the rest of the world has announced, and now rean- tlie neutrality of Chinese territory and announced its decision to the powqrs last February. That Russia, however, distinctly specilied as a condition precedent to her agreement a strict observance on tho part of China of the. duties, of u neutral and also a loyal attitude on tho part of Japan toward tho spirit, the. purpose and the ot the Wash- ington cabinot'a proposal-as expressed in the circular note which Secretary Hay addressed to the'powers lust Fob- run ry.

It looks, if there would ue clear sailing in securing the fresh declarations, which are considered es- sential in order to prevent the exten- sion of the war to Chinese territory other than Manchuria. The results have justified this view. THE RUSSIAN NOTE. The long heralded Russian note reached Secretary Hay from the Rus- sian embassy direct. It was in French and its substance, was given .the. secre- tary several days ago by Count Cassini, the Russian ambassador, during a call at the state department. The text of the Russian note is re- garded as confidential and for this rea- son the state department has not made it public. The Associated Press has obtained an approved synopsis of the note, which, without purporting to give the language, presents in accurate sequences the subjects to which Count Lamsdorf. refers. The Russian ambassadors to the sev- eral powers are invited by Count Lamsdorff the circular note to call to attention of the ministers for foreign affairs of the government to which they are respectively accredited, the fact that at the beginning of tho war the imperial government for hu- mane reasons agreed to tho proposal Of the Washington cabinet regarding room was quite well filled with spec- tators this morning, and every one seemed mil-rested hi the brilliant col- thai, have pa.ssed between the attorneys.

[By Associated Press.] Washington, D. C., Jan. Mitchell of Oregon made a statement in the senate today regarding his in- dictment in connection with Oregon land frauds. At the outset the senator declared the charges made.against him, if true, unfit him to occupy a seat In the senate. He then detailed the charges and said, "I assert In the most positive and unqualified manner that each and every one of the charges, hi so far as to or involve, me, is absolutely (alse and t here and now indignantly and defiantly denounce their authors, and' each and' every one brothel's. Among them, they have about acres of land In P.ichlaud township, in Boca tar county, worth about Their father and moth- er are yet living, and Frank Greenland is now thirty-nine" years of ago, but unmarried. He is the manager of the properties of the entire family. He is a giant in stature, a. man of enor- mous force, who lives on the strenuous plan raised1 to the. "nth" power. His home Is a castle and his; cellar '.ft stock- ed with barrels of rye without tho rode, it is said, Mco the feudal lords nf old. For years ho has dominated a large faction In Uichland township- and' at Grand River. No one has cared to be- come interested in an altercation with him, but be iias been In many law- suits, and some of these are now pend- ing and may be the basis for an appli- cation for a pardon for Greenland. He always has kept about him, vn the op- eration of the Greenland acres and the control of from to head ot cattle, a large crowd of vigor- ous young men built more or less on tho strenuous western frontier fashion. TillS BASIS OF THR CASE. It was some of these young men up- on whom Greenland Jays tho bljune for tho act which it seems probable now will land him in the penitentiary. Dick Pray and> Port Woodward are under in- dictment charged with complicity in the theft of the cattle for which Green- land was convicted on a charge of grand larceny. Another man was also said to have been in. the crowd. was said in the trial that Pray, Woodward and their companion went to the farm of Dan Moran In R'chlanii township a.nd there took tbiee or four hoafl of steel's out of the yards where they were feeding on grass and drove them to Van. Wert, where they were put in a car with stock shipped that day by Greenland from. Grand River. The animals were traced to Chicago, to tho commission firm lauding them, thence to the Indiana purchasers and were brought hack to Iowa and used as exhibits in the trial of Greenland. Pray and Woodward have not been tried. Pray is in the penitentiary, serving time for arson. Greenland owned a livery barn in Grand River, and across the street was another. One night the side- of the- latter barn was covered with coal oil and It waa hurn- ert down. Pray was charged vlth tho that he proposed, If possible, to bring Curtis hui-o and push the criminal ac- tion to tho limit. He Intimated that in case the criminal action failed hu would bring civil sut. Weiss insists that ho will slay hero and light the case through, claim Ing that It was here Curtis "caused his' name to be dragged Into the gutter." Weiss appears lo he a man of edu- cation and Is a fluent talker. The .story tellso f his arrest and his ex- perience with the woman defective, Mrs. A. M. TlobcrtH, is in substance the same as told by Curtis, although It differs widely in details. He says Mrs. Roberts enticed him to her room, and It was she, and nut he, who was mak- ing violent Jove, and caused them to lit; found In each other's arms, when tho ofllcei-H, who wore concealed by OurUn, appeared In the room. Weiss claims his wll'o does not a di- vorce, and has no ijuarrel with him, but he says Curtlft. tho wife's brother, bltlorly opposed t.boir marriage, and has been endeavoring since then to have her secured divorce. He hinted that it was very likely all news of his arrest and Imprisonment bore had been kept from her. Weiss explains his waiving exami- nation at the preliminary hearing by had practically no business. There was as usual a small amount of typhoid this fall, but it amounted to very lit- lle considering the stee .of the town. There have'been'no mbre'-thau a dozen or so cases, all-told. "As far -as contagious diseases are concerned, there never was a yean since the city passed the size of a vil- lage, when there was correspondingly as few cases as there have been during the past twelve months. Prom July to December there was not antine sign put.up in the whole of Fort Dodge, and even now there are not more than a case or two. There is even a lack of the usual children's diseases that are almost Invariably in evidence at this time of year, "The general health is not in the city alone, but this entire section of the state is almost entirely-free from dis- ease. The physlcvans of. the city are not attempting to'account for vailing excellent health of this .vicin- ity.
