Uy mak ling public today tlie report of the "new s'ato" committee and nnnoucning its ! adopt ion by the chamber of commerce, Secretary L. ti. Monroe, of the latter body, formally launched the cnmiMiign for the creation of a new commonwealth comprising the "Inland Empire," for which the name "Lincoln lias ihvii most fieqiiently suggested. The report of the committee, which was adopted unanimously, consists of a review of conditions that brought about what it tetnis the unnatural arrange ment of Umndarios now existing in the Noithwest, advances reasons for the construction of a new state and suggests the following Kwndaries should I e ap proximated: That the 45th degree of latitude, or the present north line of the state of Wyoming, extended, be designated as the northern boundary of the state of Idaho, and the 120th degree of longi-' tnde, or the eastern lnmudary of the state of California, carried uoith, until it intersects the 45th degioeof latitude, bo designated as the western boundary of the state of Idaho, and that the east ern California line, carried to lrit isli Columbia, be designated as the eastern boundary of the state ol Washington, thereby leaving a new state to be here after named and from which a cential city should be selected as the capital, comprising the panhandle of Idaho, Northeastern Oregon and Eastern I Washington The report goes on to say: "This proposition should not come from any one town or looalitv, but should be brought from all the principal towns north of the said 45th degree of latitude, and, if possible to secure their consent and approbation, then the mat ter should le taken to the principal towns and cities south of the said 4oth degree of latitude, to secure, if possible, their cc-operaticn."

Washington, April 8.

These two great organi zations are working together fur the common cause and have furnished over two-thirds of all relief supplies sent to China. "The following cablegram, received by the editor of the Christian Herald from the editor of the North China News, terrible as it may seem, speaks only the truth: "Shanghai, April 6. Klcpsch, New York. Approaching period of severest pinch. Authentic instances of corpses exhumed, canibalism. Foreign relief working effectively, maintaining whole districts until harvest.'
