opinion of Viscount Takaaki Kato ex

Germany as the ringleader and au.

give up 'her rightful gain under the
pretext of. preserving the peace of
the Orient, and not only sowed the
seed of the Russo-Japanese war a
decade after, but unlawfully occupied
a corner of Shantung province on a
trifling pretext. Thus the European
war afforded a golden opportunity to
Japan for avenging her long harbored
enmity and wrath towards Germany.
Besides, this removal of the Ger
man influence for the East, where
Germany had menaced Japan's activ-
ity in China and the growth of Sino
Japanese friendship with her fast in
creasing influence,, has proved a
boundless benefit to Japan as well as
to China, the viscount declares The

(Correspondence). For many a hap
less boatload of submarine victims in
the North Sea the laying up of the
big Ymuiden and Vlaardingen fishing
fleets is calculated to have vital con
sequences. Their chances of salva
tion, at any rate so far as a very wide
area of that sea is concerned, now
virtually has been restricted to the
finding of a lightship, to making land

that since the proclamation of the

number of Dutch trawlers and other

fishermen resolved to suspend their

FOOLED THE FISHERMEN
Promising Looking Cask Proved to be
a Mine Which Tore Them
Galway, Ireland, June 30. (Cor-
resepondence) Nine Galway fisher
men were blown to pieces a few days
ago while examining a German "bar "barrel
rel "barrel mine" which they had found at
sea and towed ashore.
Irish fishermen have made lately a
great many lucky hauls of barrels
containing petrol, tallow, oils and
similar treasures, supposedly from
torpedoed ships. This time they saw
a promising looking barrel afloat
some distance from land, with a con-
venient handle on each side, and they
promptly towed it ashore, rolling it
up the beach for examination.
Four men were in the boat, and six
more gathered around while the prize
was on the beach. One man, Joseph
Joseph O'Flaherty, had a suspicion of
danger, and warned the others, but
they paid no attention to him, and he
hid himself behind a rock.
One of the fishermen removed a
couple of screws from the head of
the barrel, and then began to pull out
a piece of cord. The explosion which
followed was heard miles away, and
shook houses four miles distant.
After a time O'Flaherty, who had
been wounaed.in the bead with a
piece of stone, stood up, but not a
trace of the mine or the men was to
be seen. There was only a great hole
in the beach. Searchers found a
portion of the fishermen's boat nearly
a mile away. A small boy whose at
tention was attracted to the group of
men on the shore was running to
ward them just as the mine exploded.
One of his arms was afterwards
found near his home, but there was
no other trace of him.

Mendenhall, and the Tampa Times

when it says:
"Recently it has been rumored that
efforts were soon to be made to se secure

of Clearwater, who committed the
most fiendish crime ever perpetrated
by a white man in Florida when he
murdered Mrs. C. W. Eliot and daugh daughter,

an effort to hide his crime. This in
spite of the fact that Mendenhall has
served only a few months of his life

laws of justice demanded, that Men Mendenhall

double crime, but to the disgust of the
people of this section he escaped the
gallows. He was fortunate indeed
when he escaped lynching, and the
Times sincerely hopes, for the sake
of respecf for law and order, that no
effort will be made to secure a par pardon
don pardon for him now or at any other time.
Mendenhall had no more right to
escape the gallows than Will Miles,
negro rapist and murderer, who is
being guarded by state troops while
on trial at Bradentown. In fact, Men
denhall, the intelligent and highly re respected
spected respected white "man, deserves less
sympathy than the ignorant, vicious
negro, who deserves none. In refus
ing to lynch Mendenhall andMiles
the men of South Florida have made
it evident that they wish to respect
the law and courts. That wish will
lose much strength if J. J. Mendenhall
is allowed freedom by the pardoning
board; and even if his attorneys make
an effort to secure his freedom. In
the name of decency, 'forget it.'

graphing telegraphing from the Galician front. In
the minds of those observers there is
no question that the Russian drive is
the real thing. "Their air service,"
explains one correspondent, quoted in
a cable dispatch to the Globe, "was
quite prepared for the most difficult
tasks. Their railroads were ready,
efficient and resourceful. They had
plenty of big guns, greater than ever
before. They had many tanks."
The people of Germany are advised
that this Russian advance bears no
semblance to a flash in a pan. "Worse
days are coming," predict the corres correspondents,
pondents, correspondents, and one of them adds by
way of explanation:
"It was obvious that the Russians
knew what they were fighting for.
They fight like people who no longer
fight for a tyrant."
There is something ominous for the
kaiser in that.

CRITICISM ON CONGRESS
Editor Star: I am handing you
herewith an extract from "Memoirs
of the 'War of Secession", by Johnson
Hagood. What Gen. Hagood says fits
so aptly and pointedly to conditions
now prevailing in Washington that I
cannot but hope that the printing of
it now in the newspapers may do some
good, especially when we think of the
disastrous results which overlook the
"storm cradled nation" and know that
it was largely due to just such as
inine conduct at Gen. Hagood records.
In order that what he say3 may be
better understood I will state here that
our brigade (Hagood's) had been in
the trenches on the outer lines of the
defenses of Richmond on the Darby
town road from early in October 1864,
and on the 19th of December of that
year the brigade was drawn out of
the trenches and sent to North Caro Carolina
lina Carolina to reinforce Fort Fisher. WTien
this move was made, it was the cold coldest
est coldest weather I ever experienced at any
time or place in my life. I told you
about it in one number of my "Rem "Reminiscence"

more. When the brigade reached
Richmond it was loaded into box cars
so thick and crowded that no one
could lie down, and the accommoda accommodations
tions accommodations provided for the officers were no
better than furnished for the men. In
the extract in send you with this,
Gen. Hagood is writing about this
trip from Richmond to Wilmington.
Gen. Hagood says:
"We were detained some hours in
Danville for want of transportation,
and it was late in the day, the 22nd,
before the brigade began to go for forward

distance to Greensboro was but forty forty-eight

morning of the 26th that the whole
brigade was transported over it it-three

by rail! The road and the rolling
stock were evidently in bad condition,
but the delays were so frivolous, and
the accidents so numerous that Gen General

finally got on by seizing engines and
taking the trains in his own hands.
It is hard to say whether there was
design or only criminal mismanage mismanagement

"The Confederate Congress had ad adjourned

not entitled to the thanks voted by
the Roman senate to the consul re returning

not despaired of the republic under
difficult circumstances.' They were in
fact, utterly demoralized. This was
the first time the writer had ever
heard any one embarked in the cause,
civilian or soldier, express doubts of
its ultimate ; success; and prophetic,
perhaps, patent as they were, they
now made but little impression upon
him, for he had long looked upon the
Confederate Congress for the most
part in the light of the v post quarter quartermaster

written what was foremost in his
mind, the word "cowardly" would
fcave been written instead of "pru "prudent"

paragraph I have quoted. Nor do I,
think that Mr. Wilson needs to be
"controlled" as a large majority of
congressmen and the people cordially
support him in all of his measures
because they see and feel that he is
right and is working strenuously for
the best interest of the whole people.
But there are a few unpatriotic block blockheads
heads blockheads in Congress who are doing all
they can to bring disaster on the
country just so they can shoot off
hot air and bring themselves in the
limelight. They have not courage to
fight themselves, and do all they can
to persuade others not to, so as to
have as many cowards in their com company
