Mr. Dooicy,  unless our memory is a%  fault,  admits  somewhere  that  opportunity knocks at least once at every  man's door, but adds that if the roan  opens  ibe  door  opportunity frequently swats lr m in the jaw.   Now,    the  President  is not a man of peace,   lie  lias   frequently   celebrated   the  glories  of combat, and of the fibre that      resin Is from  carnage.    When ,he became  the   most      conspicuous    "laborer  for  peace between   Russia  ami  -lapan, his   gas arisen to teach the old ami proud  attitude   was  determined   largely   by    powers  new  things   about   the direful  his opportunity.

Russia Was influenced by money   con-  isiderations   and   the  international situation   fat    more  than  by  public  opinion,   although,  of course,  the views  of tne President, the'Kaiser, and  the  French���������would have weight-   Such surmise must, however,  for along time  be,    geatrai.

To  make peace between two strong ria.  tions, after a struggle that was so 1  memorable, would go far to assure  him space ia histary; for in Mire narratives of the past a statesman's place  ii> determined as much by the size of  events in which be was Concerned as  by thc actual personal quality of the  man himself.

The   three  men  arrived       in  Tanana and  acted -as if ittHhing had  'happened.

In   this  way  they secured  Irom   twenty   friends  legal   undertakings  to  divide up  with  them,  and as  there     were enough   to cover       the  creek,   the party  had  been  organized.  At the  time  the letter was written,  they  were  waiting for air bpportuni-  to dodge hangers-on and thus prevent any  one following them to  the.  new  creek.

The  French submarines are supposed     to  he   the      most   marvelous,   although  those of the United States have so  far     done  the  most  advanced  work  which  can   be  considered  as  beyond  doubt.   The French crafts for killing  men  under  water  arc 'shrouded     in  mystery,   and      most  of the stories  about  them  must-be deemed doubtful.    If any but French naval     men  have any accurate knowledge  oi   the  French submarines it can  only     be  spies of other  governments   -   whose  knowledge would certainly nsver be  published.  The American vessels for underwater fighting have, however, proved remarkable.
