Lansdowne Says Revenue Must Be
Rescued From Turkey.
LONDON. March 2S. The House of
Lords discussed the Macedonian ques
tion lengthily tonight. Lord Lytton.
Conservative, called attention to the
condition of affairs in that part of the
world. He said that the Austro-Rtis-
sian reform scehme was a -failure and
it was hopeless to expect anything
from Russia or Austria. The rule of
the Turk was an anomaly in civilised
Europe and a perpetual menacn.
Foreign Secretary Lansdowne said
some progress had boon made but he
realized that action was urgent on. the
grounds of humanity and because the
existing conditions menaced th peace
of Europe. Great "Britain, however,
had less responsibility than any other
power, and. howovcr desirable. Jt was
impossible for Great Britain to send a
fleet to Constantinople or an army o
invasion into Macedonia. It was hard
ly likely that Russia and Austria would
stand aside to find room for the West
The Foreign Secretary also said the
British Government approved the lat

Turkish government proposed to raise
the custom dues and Great Britain
would not accept a proposition so in

had made certain propositions in con

Lord Lansdowne further remarked
that, as a further Indication of the
manner in which the government re
garded the situation, he misrht say
that it was of the opinion that the
question had reached a stage where all
the powera had a right to make them
selves heard. The finances of Mace
donia must be so arranged as to pro

of Macedonia, guarantees must be pro
vided that not any of the revenues ear
marked for the special benefit of Mace

Foreign Minister, as It was not deliv
ered to him until February 7, the day
after he had been Informed of the rup
ture. Russia has always claimed that
the Japanese Government, having de
elded to break off negotiations and be
gin hostilities, deliberately held up the
message at Toklo until M. Kurlno, for
xner Japanese Minister at St. Peters
burg, could deliver the instructions
sent him February 5 to sever diplomat
ic relations. Japan, on the contrary
contended that the contents of the
reply having been substantially com-'
xnunlcated by Foreign Minister Lams

able on the main issue. It was useless
for Japan to wait any longer. The
text of the proposition follows:

Integrity of Corea.
"Second An engagement on the part
of Russia not to Impede the commer
clal or industrial undertakings of Ja

A careful comparison of the above and

the fact that Russia, from first to

with her dignity to Include in a special

Manchuria, reiterating In the instructions
sent to Baron Rosen, which were accom

that Russia's position In Manchuria con

GOVERNOR FOLK SETS FORTH
THE MISSOURI IDEA.
Missourians Ih New York Hear the
Terror of Bribers Expound" His
Principles and Praise Him.
NEW YORK. March 28. Governor
Joseph W. Folk, of Missouri, was the
guest of honor ana the principal speak
er at the banquet or the Missouri So
ciety at the Waldroi-Astoria tonight.
At the right of the Governor sat Dis
trict Attorney Jerome, who also made
a brief address. Governor Folk said In
"The Missouri Idea means the en
forcement of law, and that, if the law
bo bad, the remedy is to repeal it,not
to ignore it. There is entirely too llttlo
respect for law In America. Suca a
thing Is unknown in any otherland.
Disregard of one law breeds disrespect
for all laws. In allowing some laws to
go unenforced we reap a harvest ln
having all laws broken.
."The law may not bo to one s liking.
but the answer: 'It Is tho law. should
be sufficient for (he law-abiding. Good
men will observe even bad laws, but
bad men will break even good laws. t
should be that all men should be com
pelled to keeji all laws, good and bad,
because It Is the law.
"How careless people usually are as
to whether laws are enforced or not.
This lethargy gives rise to civjc evils.
Indeed, nearly all public wrongs grow
out of the Indifference ot the people.
There aro many who thrill with pa
triotic fervor at the thought of going
to war and risking their lives for their
country, but who forget to vote on
election day. The patriotism of peace"
Is Just as necessary as the patriotism
of war. The patriotism of tho ballot
Is even more necessary in a free coun
try than the patriotism of a bullet.
Plenty of men will" die for their coun
try, but tho man who will live for his
city and state every Jay is the man
good government reeda."
District Attorney Jerome said:
"I Jo not wont to- belittle what Gov
ernor Polk has done, but It Is a fact
that nothing he has done can be com
pared to what he may uo and may be.
Whatever Folk has accomplished as
Circuit Attorney' and Governor,- ono1 of
the greatest things he nas done was
to put courage Into the hearts of thou
sands who never knew him- That will
be the monument to his life. There are
four men today on whom the attention
of the United States Is riveted Roose
velt, LaFollette. Dencen and Folk.
These. men have the plain people behind
them and will continue to have them,
so long as the people believe they stand
on their honesty."

PADDING OF PAYROLL CHARGED
District Attorney Makes an Investi
gation of the Accusation.
A charge that the payrolls In the City
Engineer's office were padded for the
months of February and March, 1204. Is
being investigated by District Attorney
Manning. The complaint was made by a
racwoer 01 me municipal Association
who admitted when Interrogated as to
what he knew that he was not well in
formed as to particulars, but that the
public knew. "Examine the payrolls for
these two months." he said.
Mr. Manning dispatched his deputy. Mr.
Adams, to look into tho matter, and the
latter proceeded to the office of City Audi
tor Devlin and asked for the payrolls,
which wero produced. Each contained
about 75 names, and Mr. Adams could not
find anything wrong with them. Upon
Inquiry Mr. Adams ascertained that the
charge had been made soon after the pay
roll for February. 1901, had been turned
over to Auditor Devlin, that it contained
the names of two operators of steam
rollers, who had not worked on the rollers
those months, because It rained con
stantly and they wero not In use. Mr.
Devlin explained to Mr. Adams that he
refused to audit the salary claims of
these two men unless affidavits were filed
in bis office, which was afterward, done.
The affidavits said the two men worked
from ten to 12 hours a day during the
Lmonth. one as a bridge constructor, and
the other as -a stationary engineer.
Another charge was that a man's name
appeared on the payroll In November last
fpr J65 who never had been in the employ
of the city. This was explained away by
the City Engineer as a- clerical error.
The last county grand jury Investigated
the alleged padding of a payroll by City
Engineer Elliott, but did not see. fit to
return an indictment against him or any
one else In his office on that account.

Whiskey and Beer Habit
PERMANENTLY CURED BY
ABSOLUTELY SAFE, SURE AND HARMLESS
Physicians pronounce drunkenness a disease of the nervous system, creating
a morbid craving for a stimulant. Continued Indulgence in whisky, beer or

flamed stomach membranes.
"ORRINB" permanently removes tha craving for liquorvby acting directly on
the affected nerves, restoring the stomach and .digestive organs to normal con
ditions, improving the appetite and restoring the health. Can be given secretly

The ORIGINAL remedy that "kills the Dandruff Germ."
DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS LOADED
3fost young and middle-aged men never
know that their scalps are loaded with
naicroblc growths until ths hair has
"gone off. Nature sends her -warnings
of dandruff, itching scalp and falling- hair
but the discovery of the dandruff germ is
too recent for the public to reallis the
danger of neglect. Newbro's Herplelde
positively destroys the dandruff microbe:
stops falling hair, and protects the scalp
against reinfection. A delightful hair
dressing. Stops itching Instantly. Its
immense popularity proves ita goodnese.
