A cabinet     council  to Morocco will  consider the note."  The nature of  France's  official  answer is still in doubt owing to Premier  Ilouyier's desire  to avoid  widening   the  breach   between   Germany  antl  France.

MANILA  They Did   Not Leave the  Harbor Within Specified  lime  m-******-*******-*****  So are Now Under the Guns  of the Ohio and Mo-  donac  al conference on the  subject of Morocco  is regarded in  the highest circles  as renewing  the gravity  of   the  situation almost to the making^ of it  a menaiice.    France has   received ^a  copy   of   the   note showing  that Germany  aded  openly in -appealing    to  the" powers,  notwithstanding the official statement.-from Merlin that Mor-  rocco   invites   the conference.        The  officials     here interpret,  (he German  , note,as showing  that,  Germany     is  the real up-holdur of  the conference.  The   text of  the note shows       that  Germany relies  mainly on article 17  of thc  treaty of Madrid,  signed    July, 3rd, 188(1, which recites that Morocco  recognizes   the most favored nation      treatment  in   lhe case  of all  powers represented at *he conference.  The  German  note holds  that  this  gives  the powers eqlial rights to consider   the  affair   of  Morocco.      -The  French  answer  is as follows:  (Associated Press Despatches.)  .Washington, D.  C.,'.June 0.���������Secretary Taft has received  the following  cablegram   from  Governor  Wright at,  Manila:   "Russian   warships  did   not  leave thc harbor within  the required  21 hours,  and   as a result they arc  now    in custody  of  Admiral Train,  who  informs me  that  he  has  taken  necessary steps to interne them. They  are  now   behind   U12 breakwater,   under  the guns of thc Ohio and Modo-  nack.  He has doubtless reported  full  details  to  the iuvy  department.   "  ., Rear  Admiral  Train  has   reported  to/the navy depart nient at Washing*-  ton     that  the Russian ships ai. Manila have been interned.

Another     attempt   to     arrange  for a new  peace  conference has  resulted in  a reiteration  by the employers that they will  make  no  further concessions.  VISIT TER.

When   it  lucumc  understood   lhat   the surveys  were not ya  so  far advanced     as  to warrant   t'a  Canadian  government  fixing   the   pe -  liiancnt    route  aud   western   ten. inns  of   the  railway,  it   was strongly   ui;-;-  ed  upon me hy many persons  in  Victoria   that      the  const Miction    of   f e  line of railway should at once be ni:-  liertaken  by   the     Dominion   from   the  liar;. or i.f     Esquimale to the port  oi  Xanaimo,  on the  west  coast of'Vancouver Island, a distance of nhoul 7u  mile*,.

Moreover,-it was contended   that   in   view  of the  admitted  impossibility to     complete    the  construction of the transcontinental railway  within  the  time originally  liini-  'iled,   some      substantial    concessions  should  he made  to  the people of the  Island  as compensation for their disappointment and  prospective losses."  long-continued  agitation  cnsr.ed.  in  respect to  the     building of  the rail-  Seattie's brc  Papers  DULY  SUSilAY  fWIC������ A H'EiH  .-;.)  -J i^^S\li%'^%^^:^%y,\%%,%\\\^s\^^%\\\\%,%\t  B-sIij ?&3{-:iiteffl&������-c-5r, J "J i: JO raxs   *&     '  Publizbea    the    fullest    '.elctfrnphlo    r  the  world.    f  nevra,    Dally ' J*  and Sunday edition, 75c per mouth     /  ii  P I"  I     ���������       li  IHE  PQSk-  IKTfLLlSmtii  ?������ f   news  from   a21  pants  cf  J V All the stats and local ne  Sample Cep.'es Free  Write f er C?;e  Swlzy Fc-3f-:n:eH-S������ncsr, -JO U5'i i'ngea  TLt- ifiigest and mest complete San  /**   rt   JhJ"   i'9per  north  cf San  Yrandsoo.  \   ������   Spscial   depe-rtments   of   literature,  of fashion, of wcmen'n newt**.     6u*b������-  dj-.y edition, $ 2.00 per yoax.

To "come down like Davy Crockett's  coon," is a colloijuial expression in  common use. Crockett and the coon  that came down are so popularly associated together that to attempt to  disconnect them is well nigh to attempt the impossible. To explain a  thousand times that it was not Davy  Crockett    to     whom  the coon came i  **^**^*&*.*���������4^4*������������#.fl&&9&&* & 'ztA**********-**  Union  down, were without effect; the world  has it "Davy Crockett's coon," and  the world will have it-so, and there  it stands.  The real hero of the coon story  was Captain Martin Scott; the story  was a tribute -to his sldll as a rifle  shot. Scott was a brave man and a  good American . soldier of the Mexican war peiiod, and he deseived to  be remembered;, but even such credit  as the coon story ���������attributed to him  lias been filched from him and given  to another,  who did  not need  it.  Scott  was  a     native  of   Vermont.  l-'rom his youth    he was'famous as a  shot.      An     exploit   of    his "twelfth  year    was the     slaying, unaided and  alone,     with  his     father's  purloined  smootlnhorc,   of a    mauraiiding   bear  which    had ' defied     the entire posse  comitatus     of the grown-ups  of the  neighborhood.       There were no laws  in  those    days for the protection of  sheep-stealing      bears.       A     feat of  Scott's mature years was the cure of  a sick    man     by shooting him.     Thc  heroic treatment was administered in  a duel.     Scott shot     his antagonist  through    the     lungs.     The man had  been sick with consumption, but from-  that moment he begun to mend, und  got well.     If Scott did not actually  ���������effect the cure,     he at least had the  credit of it.  The coon story    was printed  about  the. year  18-10,  live years  after     the  death     of Crockett.     It was told of  Capt. Scott, and ran like thisj  ��������� "Capt.     Martin Scott  was  out in  the woods one     day with a party of  friends,- hunting.     They     were scattered  through  the woods,  each lrunt-  ing separately.     One of the party at  | length came opon a raccoon that was  jsitting in one ol the highest branches  of a very tall tree.     He fired at him  and missed.

In' the     controversy as to whether  animals  think or not,  Peter Rabbit,  known naturalist,  writes in  Harper's  for June:  '���������'The point is 'not whether animals  think     continually*���������men     do not do  that���������but whether upon occasion they  are capable     of a- little thinking.   I  was swimming a river one day,  and  was carried away by a powerful current.   As    I swept down to the falls  a  rock aiid a bending  branch  offered  help.   I let myself go by fhe rock to  seize upon the     branch further down  the  stream.     Undoubtedly,   although  I  was     unaware of it    at the time,  there    was a     lightning   process  of  thought by     which I concluded that  the rock ofl'cred     too slippery a grip  lo  risk.   Afterwards     I  could  recall  nothing     whatever of the process  of*  thought,   but  only  the  swift  action  So in all emergencies.     There are undoubtedly   instantaneous   processes   of  thought and reaching conclusions, even  when a man afterwards thinks  he  has acted involuntarily.     The processes of thought are sometimes too rap  id to follow-   and no     man can say  surely how far certain actions are thc  resultof-   Instantaneous     processes of  thinking,   or  of  involuntary   impulse.  "So in the contention that no animal can think without language.      A  man     may adapt   means  to    an end  without        consciously    naming    the  means which he     uses.     Deal' mutes,  even when blind, have shown us that  they    arc    capable of good  thinking.  They have  a substitute for  language,  to be sure, but who has told us that  the animals    have not also a substitute?     Very much of our own thought has no words;  it lies on  thebor-  der between thinking and pure sense-  impression  .   The higher animals live  almost continually on this same borderland,  and how  far certain  intelligent animals    cross over from sense-  impression  to elementary  thinking  is  still a fair and unanswered    uestion.'
