ITALY EXPECTS LOUBETT.
If King Vllt France, the President
Mast Come to Rome.
PARIS, June 20 The officials here are
not desirous of freely discussing the re
ports of complications arising from Pres
ident Loubefs projected visit to Rome,
owing to the delicacy of the questions in
volved. When shown the "Vienna reports
to tho effect that tho visit had been given
up because the pope would not receive the
President, it was stated that it had never
been officially determined .that the Pres
ident should visit Rome, the early re
ports being largely a deduction that King
"Victor Emanuel's visit to Paris would
naturally be followed by M. Loubet going
to Rome. "While this probability con
tinues, no official decision has been
reached, and no announcement made as to
the time or programme.
Senor Prinetti had an hour's talk with
Foreign Minister Delcasse yesterday. He
said afterwards that if King Victor Em
manuel came to Paris, Italy Would ex
pect M. Loubet to go to Home. He added
that Italy did not want a repetition of
tho difficulties whjch resulted from the
fact that Emperor Francis Joseph did not
return tho late King Humbert's visit to
Vienna. Slgnor Prlnette added:
"It is to bo distinctly understood hence
forth that each time a King of Italy visits
the chief of a foreign state at the cap
ital that chief of state will return the
visit at the Italian capital, Rome."
The latter part of this statement appar
ently dismisses the reports that M. Lou
bet would avoid Vatican complications by
visltln& King Victor Emmanuel at a
point outside of Rome. Th? official pro
gramme of King Victor Emmanuel's visit
to Paris, given out, makes no mention of
a return visit. The King will etay here
from July 16 to 18, and will be entertained
with elaborate fetes, a military review,
state banquets, and a gala' performance
at the opera. Ho will occupy sumptuous
apartments. Tho King will be accom
panied by the Italian Minister of Foreign
Affairs, which will be given political sig
nificance. 2fAVAL EXPANSION BILL CARRIES.

The Uraga Dock Company on May 24
suspended the construction of the remain
lng coastguard boats for the United States
Government and will, it is said, carry out
a wholesale dismissal of employes at the
Uraga yard In a few days. The event is
due to tho fact that the first two vessels
cent to Manila havo been found defective
by the civil government. Mr. Tsukahara,
president of the Uraga Dock Company,
who went to Manila the other day, was
told -by the Government that the author

attract an increased immigration of

climatic conditions are about'the same as
In England and Southern" Norway. Tho
shores are tempered by the Gulf stream
similarly as Southern and Central Alaska
are tempered by the Japan current.
In addition to the resources of gold,
coal and timber, the new railroad will
penetrate a copper belt; which has been
pronounced by Government and private
mineralogists to contain tho most exten

known in the world.
