Japanese Minister Describes
TOO EARLY TO TALK OF PEACE
Takahlra Denies Peace Rumors Came
From Japan Expects No Move
From Russia Japan Ready
for Another Year's War.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 25.-Japan. through
her Minister at "Washington, Mr. Kogero
Takahlra, has categorically and absolute
ly denied all rumors and reports that she
was suing for peace, or that any act of
the Mikado's representative could bo pos
albly so construed. The Minister added
that that the "peace talk of the last few
days Is not created in Japan, but ema
nates from some other land." Japan, it
was declared, has made all arrangements
to continue the war for at least another
year. The Japanese Minister had just re
turned from a trip to Old Point Comfort,
when, In response to inquiries made by
an Associated Press representative, he
made these statements. The Minister had
xound talk of peace prevalent in many
newspapers of the country.- He went at
once to the State Department and had a
long talk with the Secretary of State. He
also saw a number of diplomats today.
Bath the State Department and the diplo
mats learned that overtures for peace, or
ven "Indirect proposals for peace." have
not emanated and cannot be expected
A correspondent of the Associated Press
called by appointment this afternoon at
the Japanese Legation and had a conver
sation with the Minister lasting for half
an hour. The Minister spoke deliberately,
but most emphatically. He said he found
that the real state of affair? had not been
correctly represented In many quarters.
nd finally he consented that portions of,
Ills conversation should 'be published,
word for word.
No Truth In Peace Rumors.
"On matters of such great importance."
the Minister began, "and of such delicacy,
it is my opinion that as a rule it is not
oasy to obtain accurate Information re
garding the actual situation, and there
fore it is not unnatural that the public is
misled more or less through misappre
hension and misstatements in the press.
Moreover, it has been clearly understood
from the outset that Japan has not been
fighting for the sake of fighting, but
that she was forced to war for the pake
of principle, and the result has been thus
far in favor of Japan. She has fortunate
ly been the victor at every battle on land
and sea. This seemed to have led to the
Beneral impression that Japan can make
overtures for peace without so much in
ronvenlence as otherwise would be the
case, and that It. must bp Japan which is
ing the war. Consequently, this Impres
ing th ewar. Consequently, this impres
sion appears to have created the rumor
that Japan gave expression through me to
a desire for peace.
"But there is not one bit of truth in this
rumor. You can deny it on my authority
absolutely and without reservation. Japan
has not given any such expression
through me I repeat most emphatically.
Russia Not in Mood for Peace.
"You will readily understand whether
Japan can make such overtures or not
If you give a little consideration to the
actual circumstances. While it is true
that Japan has been honored with suc
cess of her arms so far, it is equally true
that it has "made no apparent effect on
Russia. Through her representatives Rus
sia hasr been constantly declaring that she
will fight to the end or until she wins
no or more decisive battles. We think
It is not queer for such a large country
als Russia, a country with such enormous
strength of men and such an extraor
dinary amount of resources, to think of
a final success in the war with us. Wo
have therefore prepared to fight as long
as it Is necessary, and it was only some
weeks ago that the Imperial Diet voted
for the war budget to run from April,
' 3905. until March, 1906, and all necessary
measures are being taken In Japan to
conduct the war at least for another
"Under the circumstances you can safe
ly fay that, although Japan is ready for
peace on such reasonable terms as would
Insure a lasting peace, which has been
ih case from the commencement of hos
tilities, she knows she cannot make it
with a nation which is not of the same
frame of mind, and it Is unreasonable to
xtcct us to make any such suggestion In
that direction, and even It Is out of the
question for us to formulate the terms of
noacc. which are in a great mcasuro to
depend on the progress and result of the
Wants Revenge for Defeats.
"Suppose you and 1 make a quarrel,"
the -Minister laughingly suggested, "and
J succeeded in throwing you down once
or twice by means of jiu-jitsu, we will
say. in spite of your youth and superior
physical condition. Naturally, you are so
much offended that you think you want
revenge. Do you think I can make over
tures to you to come to good terms of
friendship? No. decidedly not. In the
same way. if Japan proposed peace at
the present juncture, it is more than cer
tain that she would not get it except
by a sacrifice of the advantageous posi
tion which she has gained at an enor
mous cost of life and treasure. Put it
down, therefore, as certain that the neaco
talk of the last few days you can surely
believe was not qreated In Japan, but
In somo other land.
Although the British and German Am-
bassadorrt were at the State Department
today, they were so well convinced by the
assurances received from Secretary Hay
on Thursday that Japan had made no
move toward peace that the subject was
not mentioned in today's conferences.
The Japanese Minister is constantly
asked by diplomats and officials regard
ing the progress of the war, the situation
in Japan and the likelihood of an early
end. He has had many conversations on
the subject for months past, but ho has
hoen unable, even in an unofficial way.
it Is said, to say to any one just what
terms Japan would accept, for, as pointed
out today, "this must depend on the
progress of the war."

POWER OF SPEAKER
Greatly Enhanced Since Can
non Held Office.
HOUSE EXECUTES HIS WILL
Action on Statehood Shows How He
Dominates His Party Committee
Places and Recognition Se
cret of His Power.
OREGONLVN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Feb. 25. Speaker Cannon Jias
proven himself more of a power In the
Speaker's chair than ever was Speaker
Reed or Speaker Henderson. Reed" ruled
with an iron hand, but he could not ab
solutely control every Republican vote
Cannon has been aole to do that, with th.
exception of one lono man from Cali
fornia. This was on the statehood bill.
No man ever was so absolutely dictator
of the House as Cannon.
The House' of Representatives uiidcr
Henderson passed a bill for thrc new
states, the celebrated bill that was talked
to death two years ago when vuay had
it In charge. Cannon reversed the Judg
ment of the House on that proposition,
for tho three-state bill had passed with
out division, no one even calling for the
yeas and nays upon it. while Cannon
forced through a bill uniting Indian Ter
ritory with Oklahoma and Arizona with
New Mexico. This bill, not meeting with
favor In the Senate, was sent back, and
instead of giving the House an oppor
tunity to vote on the proposition to ac
cept all the amendments, a motion that
certainly would have been adopted if it
had been possible to secure a vote on it.
Cannon and his committee on rules or
ganized the Republicans of the House
into a compact body and secured unani
mous support of the rule whichNscnt the
bill to conference and prevented the
House from acting on it. It was Can
non's personality and his power that se
Power Is in Patronage.
Cannon's power is a good deal like the
power of the President. Everybody is
aware that the President exercises Im
mense power in Congress through the
patronage which he has to give. Cleve
land forced the repeal of the silver pur
chase law by the use of patronage in
1833. McKinlcy was accused of disrupt
ing the Democratic party by the use of
patronage during tho Spanish war. It be
ing said that he procured the aid Qf
many Democrats by peddling out ap
pointments In the South. It is an abso
lute fact that he secured several votes
for the ratification of the Paris Peace
Treaty through appointments. Although
President Roosevelt is in no sense a pat
ronage broker, he has been President
long enough to understand that patronage
is a powerful lever In securing favorable
consideration for measures that the Ad
Now Cannon as Speaker has a similar
line of patronage. He will be elected
Speaker again, and ho will have to name
the committees. Chairmanships and
places on desirable committees arc very
Important to Republican members. They
are not going to sacrifice all possibilities
of advancement and all hopes of posi
tions on committees by opposing the
Speaker and voting with -the Democratic
party. They have a good excuse in say
ing they desired to vote with their own
party and submit to the will of the 'ma
jority. But aside from committee, places,
which arc in tho hands of the Speaker,
T nave, until within the last ten
3ears, enjoyed very good health. My
Illness is something resembling the
weakness of old age.
"I find Peruna of a great deal of use
to me. It strengthens my stomach and
digestion, and I have never found any
medicine so valuable to me as Peruna."
Pe-ru-na is a Blessing to Old
Mrs. Mary A. Willis. Room 49. Vcn
Jome Hotel, Seattle, "Wash., writes:
"Peruna is a blessing to old persons.
I was troubled with sleeplessness and
indigestion after I was sixty years old,
and I became so feeble and nervous
that life was a burden.
"My daughter took Peruna and it
cured her and made such a splendil
improvement in her general health
there are also "recognitions" to call up
local bills, and no member, unless he Is
on terms with the Speaker, can secure
recognition for any bill that he wants to
get throngh. All these men. especially
Westerns men who were- favoring the Sen
ate statehood bill. hae to secure legis
lation, and this legislation Is more Im
portant to them and more important to
their constituents and will go farther to
ward securing their renominatlon and
election than the admission of the states.
The personal equation Is stronger than
any public consideration. Besides, the
question of statehood could go over to
Excels Reed and Henderson.
But all this only demonstrates how
powerful the Speaker Is because he is
able to hold his party In line, even when
its members are willing to vote with the
Democrats. Reed was not powerful
enough to hold his party when the Span
ish war was Imminent, and there was a
revolt strong enough to overturn the
rules of the House and the Speaker in
order to force the war. Henderson was
not strong enough to secure Cuban reci
procity legislation in shape that It could
become a law, until after Roosevelt be
came President, and he forced the House
to accept the Cuban reciprocity. So it
appears that Cannon is the strongest
power as Speaker that has been devel
oped In many years.
LOOKS LIKE PAUL JONES' BODY
Coffin Seems to Bear His Title, "Ter
ror of the English."
PARIS. Feb. 25. French curiosity has
been excited by the excavations that are
going on In tho search for the body of
John Paul Jones, and crowds dally sur
round the hug'Cmounds of dirt and debris
taken from thtrsubterranean chambers of
tho old St. Iyul3 Cemetery. Ambassador
Porter is personally directing tho final op
erations, and makes frequent descents
into the deep and muddy trenches, in
which coffins are piled in double tiers.
Experts have deciphered the word "An
glais" on the name plate of the leaden
coffin recently unearthed, which is sup
posed to contain tho body of the founder
of the American Navy, and they consider
this to be a good Identification, as the
name plate on Paul Jones casket Is be
lieved to have borne the phrase, "Terrcur
des Anglais" (Terror of the English), by
which name the Admiral was popularly
known. The coffin was not opened today.
Search for the sword and rings and other
positive means of identification of Jones
is proceeding under Mr. Porter's super

CINCINNATI. Feb. 25. The ice gorges

Although the river rose several feet dur

more than $75,000 was caused by these

The value of the boats and their cargoes

What Sulphur Does
For the Human Body in Health and
The mention of sulphur will recall to
many of us the early days when our
mothers and grandmothers gave us our
dally dose of sulphur and molasses every
Sprlng nnd Fall.
It was the universal Spring and Fall
"blood purifier," tonic and cure-all, and I
mind you, this old-fashioned remedy was I
not without merit.
The Idea was good, but the remedy was
crude and unpalatable, and a large quan
tity had to be taken to get any effect.
Nowadays we get all the beneficial ef
fects of sulphur In a palatable, concen
trated form, so that a single grain Is
far more effective than a tablespoonful
of the crude sulphur.
In recent years research and experi
ment have proven that the best sulphur
fdr medicinal use Is that obtained from
Calcium (Calcium Sulphide) and sold in
drug stores under the name of Stuart's
Calcium "Wafers. They are small chocolate-coated
pellets and contain the ac
tive medicinal principle of sulphur in a
highly concentrated, effective form.
Few people are aware of the value of
this form of sulphur In restoring and
maintaining bodily vigor and health; sul
phur acts directly on the liver and ex
cretory organs and purifies and enriches
the blood by tho prompt elimination of
Our grandmothers knew this when they
dosed us with sulphur and molasses every
Spring and Fall, but the crudity and Im
purity of ordinary flours of sulphur
were often worse than the disease, and
cannot compare with the modern con
centrated preparations of sulphur, of
which Stuart's Calcium "Wafers Is un
doubtedly the best and most widely used.
They are the natural antidote for liver
and kidney troubles and cure constipa
tion and purify the blood In a way that
often surprises patient and physician
Dr. R. M. Wilklns, while experiment
ing with sulphur remedies, soon found
that the sulphur from Calcium was su
perior to any other form. He says: "For
liver, kidney and blood troubles, espe
cially when resulting from constipation
or malaria, I have been surprised at the
results obtained from Stuart's Calcium
Wafers. In patients suffering from bolls
and pimples and even deep-seated car
buncles. I have repeatedly seen them dry
up and disappear In four or five days,
leaving the skin clear and smooth. Al
though Stuart's Calcium Wafers Is a pro
prietary article and sold by druggists and
for that reason tabooed by many physi
cians, yet I know of nothing so safe and
reliable for constipation, liver and kid
ney troubles and especially In all forms
of skin diseases as this remedy."
At any rate peoplo who are tired of
pills, cathartics and so-called blood
"purifiers" will find in Stuart's Calcium
"Wafers, a far safer, more palatable nd
house and shall continue to do so, for
It Is a ivhole medicine chest.
