The Kussian engineers estimate that the

overcome, but the entire sum cannot be less
than &X,000,(X10. This enormous expense

It is not supposed that the road will pay
for a great number of years, but the etar is
fully aware of its strairgelical value. It
will enable him to command the northern
boundaries ol his political neighbors with a
very much smaller mililajy force than is re
quired today. When this railway is com
pleted, and olliclal surmises fix the year l!t
for its opening, a journey of about SOW
miles long can be made from Taris to the
Pacific at Vladivostok. It will require about
three weeks of continuous travel to make it.
Tiis supreme court of Oregon lias just
handed down a decision that while of inter
est to the general taxpayer is of peculiar in
terest to the sheritls and newspapers. The
S'lit was one to set aside a tax deed. The
supreme court holds that the tax deed is in
valid for the reason that the first notice of
sale was published June tlth and the last
June '.Tin, the sale being held on July 3d,
making but twenty-seven clear days. The
law requires the publication to be for four
weeks successively ; this means twenty-eight
If reports, which are mostly from Spanish
sources, are to be relied on, the Cuban revo
lution has collapsed after the first decisive
battle between the insurgents and Spanish
troops. The Spaniards claim to have either
killed or captured all of the Cuban leaders
and to have scattered the insurgent forces.
It is a physical impossibility for the Cubans
to win their independence. While Spain is
one of the weakest nations of Eoroe yet
her army and navy are more than a match
for the Cubans, who have degenerated to
such an extent that they are only capable
of carrying on a guerrilla warfare. The
land is all in great plantations, owned by
Spanish and other foreign nations, and the
people of the island are a race of tenants.
The majority of them are negroes, but a few
steps removed from savages, while the poor
whites by intermarriage and contact are but
little better than the negroes. Outside of
the few educated people ot the towns the
people are too ignorant and brutal to carry
on an independent government. There is
little likelihood of the Cubans ever winning
their indeiiendence, for the Spanish rule is
constantly forcing them to louef depths of
poverty and ignorance, and their only hope
to better their condition is for the island to
come into the possession of some other
country by conquest or purchase.
THE WAR ENDED.
The postal receipts for the last quarter
have shown a marked Increase over the pre
vious quarter as shown by a report of the
department. For the past two years there
has been a constant decline in the volume
of business handled by the postal depart
ment. With the revival of business the sale
of stamps increase for the mail order busi
ness of the mercantile establishments pro
duce a good part of the Kistal revenues.

China's efforts to sesure peace has at last
been successful and the war is now at an
end with the terms of settlement wholly
dictated by Japan. Japan gets a money
indemnity of $100,000,000 and the per
manent jiossession of the large and fertile
island of Formosa and ot several smaller
islands off the Chinese coast and to bold the
great fortresses of Port Arthur and Wei-Hai-Wei
with the pimnsulason which they
are situated until the indemnity is paid.
The result of the war is that Japan has
become one of the great powers of the world
while China as a military power is crushed
and has no hope of ever rising again. The
Chinese have shown themselves to be totally
devoid of courage and patriotism, and now
that they have shown that they are i neap
Able of maintaining a national existence it
will be but a question of time when China
will be dismembered and divided between
Japan and the great powereof Euroue.

J GREAT RAILWAY.
The Tiumen-Om-k section of the Sibe
rian railway, which was recently opened for
passenger tratlic, forms the first installment
of this colossal work, which is todwarfall
the longest continental lines in the world.
It is to be 0700 miles in length, and as yet
800 miles only are in actual use. From
Omsk, which is in the extreme west of
Siberia, it is to extend in an eastern direc
tion to Crasnoiarski, a distance of nearly
The embankments and cuts forming this
division are already made, and the work is
already being actively conducted toward
completion. From this point the road will
follow a more southerly course to Irktusk,
go along the southern shore of Lake Bai
kal and through the valley of the Heeluig
river, crose the valleys of the Lena and
the Amurto Lake Colan, where excellent
coal has been found.
Thence it runs eastward to the steamboat
station at Szejetinsk, on the Amur river,
and follows the course of that stream south
eastward to Hhabarotfka. There it will
turn southward along the right bank of the
Usstin, run to Grall'sky, and terminate at
Vladivostock, on the sea of Japan.
From this port operations have bf-en com
menced in a northwesterly direction some
200 miles, and the road is actually running
to Grapska. Thus it will be seen that about
1000 miles, or nearly one-sixth of the entire
distance, is virtually accomplished. But
innumerable and almost insurmountable
difficulties surround the bridging of the gap
between these two extremities.
Siberia is a big country. It is twice as
large as the whole of the I'nited Slates.
Nine tenths of Its territory has never been j
explored. The route ot the railroad is near
the 55th parallel; that is, as far north as
southern Alaska, and consequently the
climate is very cold. The difficulty of pro
curing and transporting men will come
largely from the Ural mountains, near the
western terminus of the road.
