Is It possible that ho has becomo a

For Political Reasons.
Now York, April 24. Friends here
of Princess Czaykowskl, the daugh
ter of Clarence Collins, and formerly
a ward of Chauncey Depow, were

bppii In high favor with the sultan
and his family is ono of tho most
powerful In tho Orient.

EMi iD JAPi TO
DISPUTE RUSSIA'S ADVICE
United States Will Also Make a Vigorous Protest Against
Russia's Demand of China.
"London, April 24. Following close
ly the announced demands of Hussla
on China regarding Manchuria, and
the rushing of three Japaneso war
ships to Nlu Chwang, comes tho an
nouncement this morning that tho
admiralty will shortly strengthen the
British fleet In Chinese waters.
In government circles this move is
ascribed to the fact that an alliance
with Japan will be mado to block the
Russian aspiration In the far east.
In many quarters the move Is F.ild
to have a more soiious Import and
the situation is regarded as critical.
Washington, April 24. It is prob
able that the United States govern
ment will maka a vigorous protest
through tho proper diplomatic chan
nels against Russia's demand on
China for the particular retention by
Russia of the Provlnco of Manchuria.
At the state department this step
by Russia Is regarded ns n direct
breach of faith. It Is scarcely possi
ble that the United States would join
with any power In an action against
Russia, but the state department will
forwnul to Russia an emphatic state
ment of the sentiments of this gov
ernment In the matter.

PETITION FOR BRIDGE.
In West Part of Town Is Being Gen

Tho petition for a brfdgu uctoss
tho river In tho westorn part of town
Is being generally signed and It Is ex
pected that tho county court will
take action upon It at tho May ses
sion which begins tho 6th prox.
The petition does not provldo for a
footbridge merely, but for a wagon
bridge a good, solid, comprehensive
structure. It Is stated, further, that
thero Is a direct relation between
this structure and tho school ques
tion In this city, thus: If tho west
enders can have a good bridge upon
which their children can cross to
school from either direction, they will
at onco withdraw their opposition to
a bond Issuo, provided they aro assur
ed a proportion of tho expenditure
of the school bond money.
This Is on the presumption that a
very Influential number of tho west
enders aro actually opposed to any
bond issue in the absence of bettor
school facilities being provided them
than they now have. Tho abovo con
tingency Is based npon the theory
that those westenders who are actu
ally opposed would be placated with
a bridge provided even they bad to
cross tho river to get to school.

"AN OFFICER'S HONOR."
Killed His Companion Because He
Must Be True to the Soldier's Code
Artilleryman Hartmann, of Berlin,
killed In cold blood by his Hchoolmnto
and "friend," Naval Cadot Hussnor,
may not hnvo died In vain If IHh mar
tyrdom reveals to nil Gormuny the
absurdity or a peaceful and prosper
ous nation organized from coro to
clrcuinroienco upon mediaeval mili
tary Ideals, says tho Now York World.
Tho parties woro hoys together.
They woro still boys in years, though
soldiers, when HusHiicr struck the
other through with n sword for run
ning away Instead of submitting to
arrest for tho heinous crlmq of falling
to saluto him as a "superior offlcor."
To tho angry crowd who gathered
about tho poor lad gasping out his
lire In tho street Hussnor said, with
that strango, incomprehensible prldn
of ono who has killed his man and
brother, "I had to defend an officer's
honor nt all costs." An to tho grief
stricken mother of the murdered lad
ho dared to pen, ovon after reflection,
these amazing words:
"It Is In tho deopost distress and
sorrow for your son that I address
myself to you to glvo you proof of
my heartfelt sympathy for you In the
loss you havo sustained through my
action. Bo assured that I did not act
out of hatred or Ill-will against your
son. It was my hard duty as a sol
dier. I was obllgod to onforco obe
dlenco to myself, and ,to my bitter re
gret, fate dlrectod my stool In this
unfortunate manner. A word of for
giveness from you, honorod madam,
would bo Incomparable consolation,
for If the mother forgives, no honor
ably minded porson can contlnuo to
bear a grudgo."
The "word of forgiveness" may be,
but It need not bo, withheld. It was
not tho hoy officer who did this mur
der, but the evil system In which ho
had been tralnod the system whoso
apologists oro even now praising him
for maintaining at such terrlblo cost
"an officer's honor,"
