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 yesterday and laid the president from sador Choate in London Ambassador Tower in Berlin and Ambassador vou Meyer in Rome The responses are identical -each power de- claring earnestly desires that China's integrity shall be respected and that there shall bo no 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- because ot the wish ot M casse minister of foreign affairs of the republic to consult Russian government and also because the fall of the Combes ministry and tho position of those in temporary power to handicap their successors In view of the past pledges made by tho Paris government however no exists that it will fall into line with the er powers FORESTALLS RUSSIAN NOTE Mr Hay's action did not follow the presentation of the Russian note ing that because of the failure of China to maintain neutrality she was mined to reserve for herself such of procedure respect to prosecution of the war ia as might lie deemed advisable It was determined upon even before Count delivered the 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 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 integrity and equality of op- 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 tlie neutrality of Chinese territory and announced its decision to the last February That Russia however distinctly as a condition precedent to her agreement a strict observance on tho part of China of the duties of u neutral

was any question as to how Great Britain stood Germany's friendly neutrality towards Russia since the war began naturally aroused some question as to whether she was willing to make a declaration at this time which might embarrass her neighbor but it was not forgotten that tue Berlin government was responsible for the suggestion that the hostilities between Russia and Japan be limited to Manchuria and Corea though it was the United States that obtained the adoption of this suggestion by the by the collision of i of the defendant company with a gy In which decedent was riding The in at

previous month At the present time there Is very little ness and the physicians have more case and Idleness than is good for their accounts There are a few cases of typhoid fever but none is and the

one week in six the entire summer well as up to present time this winter and a ber of them have not made expenses for a year past The doctors are in the same boat Aside from the cases and the people who imagine they are 111 whether there is anything the matter with or not they have watched with interest The court BLANDFORD HELD New tilm Minn Jan 17 The moment in the Koch murder trial reached the
