London, May 29.-In an editorial article, the
Daily Telegraph strongly favors King Edward's acceptance of the invitation to visit Canada.
The Daily Telegraph thinks the British (public
has not awakened to a full appreciation of the extraordinary interest of such an event, which would be
likely also to involve a visit to Washington and per-
New haps York.
The newspaper recognizes that possibly there are
state reasons in the way of such a visit, but urges
that "Canada is a living link between the American
Republic and the British Empire, and that if it can
be accomplished, it would not be merely historic but
memorable past all example in the record of all royal
progresses. 'The alliance of Japan, the entente with
France, the better understanding with Russia, followed by a visit to Washington and a meeting with
President Roosevelt, which would be of dramatic
moment, instinct with significance, sealing the reconciliation of the Anglo-Saxon races for ages to come,
would make the years of His Majesty's influence
more memorable and beneficient than any equal
period of any previous reign."

President Castro, on May 23, issued a
long manifesto in which, after referring to iiu- measures taken by thej
present administration, to prevenl
citizens front acclaiming him, said he

on the same day, Presldenl Castro

St. Petersburg, May JN.���Rumors of
a shift in tin- ministry everywhere are
apparent tonight. It is persistently reported here ami at Moscow that former Finance Minister Siiipofl' has received an earnest summons to Peterhof to confer with Emperor Nicholas,
presumably with regard to tin formation of a new cabinet, although he
frequently has expressed his unwill
ingness to take over the premiership.
A despatch from Moscow to the
Associated Press reports that M. Ship-
off lefi ihai city late^today for St.
Petersburg, but Ihat it was impossible
i-i ascertain whether bis coming is in
response to imperial command. It is
possible thai M. Shipoff's only errand
is to attend tlu- session of the council of tin- empire tomorrow, but tin-
present situation is so plainly impossible that a shift is not improbable.
r is also rumored thai Prince l-rus-
off has been summoned to an audience
with tlie emperor.
in ihe meanwhile the present ministry, among whom there is no Daniel

parliament, is going ahead with its
