V A war correspondent, writing,
i after familiar association with
Japan's leading soldiers, says:
"The Japanese officers are a niix-
?ure of the French officers and the
erman sous officers. They live
rieht among their men, sleep near
them, eat the same food in sight of
all, expose themselves to all kinds
of danger and hardship. No won
der the soldiers have the greatest
confidence in them! I found every
Japanese general I met to be brave,
generous, kind, polite, ready to
eive his life for his men and for
his flas. When the detailed his
torv of the life of some of these
men is written it will undoubtedly
call forth the admiration of the

Everything passed off pleasantly
and satisfactory until the ''lark"
was exploin-.-d and the business of
restoring the infants to their re

serious difficulty presented itself,
for the attendants were unable to

For years the project of a coast road,
from Santa Cruz to San Francisco via
Pescadero and Hiilf Moon bay, has been
bilked of. The route was surveyed sev
eral years ago and then the matter
rested. Interest has been revived at
Santa Cruz by a gentleman interview
ing citizens as to what that city would
do toward a coast road. He said that a
capitalist ana railroad builder was
anxious to construct the road. The citi

Frank B. Woodruff, president of the
Pacific Commercial company of Tacoma,
who has returned from a business trip
to Japan, says that the country is des
tined to become the greatest manufac
turing and exporting country in the
world, on account of the Japanese in
genuity and cheap lalxir. They are tak
ing apart, scrutinizing and learning
how to make all kinds of machinery,
from electrical apparatus down, and are
also developing great marble and onyx
mines. A large trade can be built up
between the Pacific Coast and Japan,
he says, but the exports to the Orient
most be chiefly of raw materials.

An interesting account of the trans
mission of the released I'arisfundsfrom

the London correspondent of the Free

small proportion, the funds, it should
be explained, are in the form of Amer

When the order for their surrender
to Mr. McCarthy was delivered by the
French courts to the Paris bankers,
Messrs. Monroe, the question arose as
to the best means of transporting them
across the channel. The junior part
ner of the firm of Messrs. Longmans &
Co.. who acted as Mr. McCarthy's solic
licitors, considered it undesirable to
travel with so large a sum of negotiable
bonds in hit! possession without insur
ing them. However, on inquiring of
several leading insurance companies
he found that none of them would un
dertake the risk'. The result was that
Mr. Longmans decided not to hazard
the chances of the road with the securi
ties. Inquiry was instituted among per
sons accustomed to sending valuables
of various kinds from the French to the
English capital, in order to discover
the plan usually adopted. To the sur
prise of those concerned, they learned
that the only really safe method in the
case of such valuable parcels was to
tend them by registered letter, and
this method was ultimately successful
ly adopted.
