This very significant announcement is coupled with!  .statements'that  it is, "on '    public  business."    I-lis  visit  was  instantly  associated with-    the peace negotiations" and it is possible /that   Emperor  Nicholas lias decided if a reasonable .basis .for negotiations is offered  by Japan lo make mo of the service's  of the ablest and strongest personality in   the Empire.  It  being Monday  morning,   the, papers  prinl   only  telegrams  today, but  the Novoe Vremya makes room for  a remartavble editorial which  may be  -inspired,   depreciating   optimism   among the diplomatist's at the present  moment^    It  says.   "Unless   Japan, -  under  the slogan of- 'Asia for       the  Asiatics'  should  recognize  that Rus-  sin   in  her origin,   history  and desti-'  ny is an Asiatic as well as an Euro-  l*can power'and "'"'be ready to conclude  not peaco but an alliance."     The paper a-d'ds .that it has", already preached,  the  doctrine  that Russia is  the bulwark of  Europe against  the ''yellow  peril."      The editorial attracted   in-'  stant attention.   The paper dwelt on  the     idea that Russia,  barred from  the    west  and   following  inexorable'  laws, must spread eastward to reach  her   natural   boundary ' warm   water.  The editorial refers" to the East,   of  her conquests on her right flank over the tribes of Turkestan and Central   Asia,  and concludes:  "If  Japan  can   only recognize that  Russia must  remain an  Asiatic power as well   as  herself,    a dm able    and     permanent  peace is possible." .  . ' ,  The'reformers breathed ja sigh of  relief over the announcement that M.  Pobedonostzeff, procurator general of  tlie Holy Synod, has sufficiently recovered Iris health, to,go abroad and  try a course for tieatment. .  A SUBMARINE  EARTHQUAKE  Evidences of tremendous submarine  earthquake     were seen by the Canadian-Australian     liner  Aorangi  last  .Sunday as she steamed for this port,'  .says the'   Vancouver    World.,  Early  in the morning     it was noticed that  the clear     green  of     the ocean had  ������������������hanged  to a dirty brown such as is  seen close off-shore when after heavy  lains     the     rivets    bring down vast  quantities     of matter in suspension.  The Aorangi,     however, was about a  thousand miles from the nearest land  in  this   instance -California, and  even  the washing ���������   of dirty     linen in San'  Francisco     lately could     not be held  sulhcieiit to account for  the phenomenon.   Aw      tho     day advanced  fragments of    pumice were    seen floating  about and  then the cause of the appearance     of the     water became evident.   There has  been  an earthquake  down   lyelow,      v.robably accompanied  hy a     discharge     from a sub-marine  volcano, and - this had flung the deposits lying on the floor of the ocean  violentlyloward the surface.     In do-  ng so whole populations of low forms  of marine     life    had been ruthlessly  disturbed   "and     killed.     For nearly  400 miles the Aorangi sailed through-  waters  in which  floated marine matter, barnacles     like shellfish growing  on marine stalks,  and  large clusters  of a dark green weed.���������������������������-'{lie; spedies of  none of  these were known,  nor'.wore  tliey      like     anything .   which -those  aboard  who     .were     acquainted with-  marine     life     had ever seen..-    Some-  specimens wire secured and a fell at-.  count of the     circumstances  will  he  forwarded     to the Meteorological office at London.  DROWNED IN  SASKATCHEWAN  Cleveland, Ohio, June 12���������Mayor Ed  ward ' F.  Dunne,  of Chicago,        and  Clarence Darrow, his legal adviser in  street oar municipal ownership matters,  left last night'for  Chicago af-  a two day's conference  with  Mayor  Tom L. Johns jn.   Several Ystrcet rail  way experts were present at the conference    at    the      request of .Mayor  Dunne,  who hopes to  launch successfully tlie first muncipally-owncd street  railway in the country.  Today Mayor Dunn  made   the statement without .qualification that the next Democratic  national "platform  would  have  a plank     calling for-the government  ownership of  railroads.    The confeL-  ence of Saturday and ycsteiday were  partly Yalong  these  lines.  Mayor Dunne, suppoitcd by Mayor  Johnson,  will  go into the  next national convention  to  make a fight for  the government' ownership plan. It'is  believed that they will have the support of Win.   Jennings Bryan,     Mr.  Bryan     having already emphatically  declared   for government, ownership of  railways.

All the various lodges in the  province will be represented, thus  bringing into the town a large number of visitors. The local Oddfellows expect here on this ^occasion  considerably over one hundred1 visiting biethren.

SI:e AdJuHtcU Matter*!.
"It is the easiest tiling in the world,"
6aid Mrs. Empson, "to be a shoplifter.
I turned one myself today. 1 stole a
book called 'Happy Thoughts For Happy People.' I didn't mean to steal il.
I picked it up by mistake and walked
away with it. L didn't know 1 had it
until I got almost home."
"Iu that case," said Empsou, "I sup-,
pose you will take it back."
"Y-y-yes, I suppose so. Tlie only difficulty about that is that 1 don't know
whore to take it. I don't know where
I j,rot Jt. Iwas in the book department
of half a dozen stores and at every
counter I looked ��t a 'Happy Thoughts'
book. I don't know whi.'h place it was
that I really turned thief."
"It was probably the last place you
were in," suggested Empson. "At any
rate, I advise you to go there and explain your mistake. They will probably know their own goods."
Mrs. Empson promised to attend to
tbe restoration of purloined literature
early the following morning. Evidently his wife's misdemeanor weighed
heavily ou Mr. Empson's mind, for his
first question that night was about the
book. r: :    ,-���   . ���,
'"Did you take it back?" he asked.
"Belonged where I thought It did, I
"Yes���that is, the floorwalker thought
It was theirs."
"That's good" said Empson. "I'm
glad you've got it settled. I've worried
about the matter all day. I see you
made good by buying more stuff as
well -as returning the book. -Bought
this there, didn't you?"
Empson took a short length of lace
from tbe table and- dangled it before
his wife's eyes.
.   "Yes,"  she said.   "You  see, it was
awfully hard to explain, the floorwalker seemed so cross.   I was afraid he
wouldn't understand and would have
me arrested or something, so when he
said the book was theirs"���
She looked at Empson appealingly.
"Yes," he said, "and then"-
"Why, then, Ididu't have the courage
to confess that I had stolen the book.
I pretended that I wanted to make an
exchauge, so he gave me a credit check
for 98 cents, and 1 bought this lace
with that."���New York Press.
