Preliminary Pourparlers Being Held In
Northern Capital.
Paris, March 27. Inquiry late lant
night tends to strongly confirm the
statement in lant evening's dispatch
that approaches toward peace between
itunnia and Japan have already begun
at a private conference in a Northern
Kuroeau capital. In view of the
statement from Bt. Petersburg that
K)urpar!orn were going on in Paris, the
'Associated Press lant night called at
tho IttipIan embassy and at thu Jap
anese legation. Ambawodor NelidofI
stated sKlfically that ho knew noth
ing about such negotiations Indng in
progress here, and Minister Montono,
whllu declining to discuss the general
question of peace, authorized the state
ment that no pourparlers were occurr
ing in Paris. At the foreign olllco it
was also stntcl that olllclals there were
not aware of stejw toward pence.
Tho foregoing statements by Count
Nelidoff and Dr. Montono, whllo indi
cating that negotiations aro not pro
ceeding bore, do not alter tho main
statement that pence preliminaries are
atually progressing eleewhero. The
real explanation is probably to bo
found in tho Paris dispatch of last
evening that a preliminary conference
had already been held nt a northern
capital. There aro strong indications
tlmt this capital la Stockholm, and that
the negotiations will to conducted at
Stockholm, if the preliminaries prove
successful. Copenhagen also is men
tioned, but it is understood that the
point was raised against past or future
conferences there that there is n largo
and influential Ilritnh element at that
capital, whoso sympathies might bo
hostile to Russia.

With the entrance of New Mexico
and Oklahoma (Indian Territory being
Included In the latter) as State, there
will be admitted many copper-colored
voters. The Pueblo Indiana of New
Mexico and Arizona are full-fledged

the treaty by wldch the country they
occupy was acquired from Mexico. In
Oklahoma are a number of trlb
which, having recently accepted allot

in 1000. tho region they inhabit Is

Some of these peoples, voters and
non-voters, comprised within the area
mentioned, are very curious and Inter

of Grand Canyon, which la called the
Placo of the Ladders, because the
town nt the bottom can be reached
only by such means, descending the
vertical cliffs. These strange folk tan
buckskin and make beautiful baskets;
and they own wonderful deposits of
copper ore and red earth suitable for
the manufacture of paints, which are
nagerly sought by the Mokl for color
ing their weird masks and other para
phernalia for ceremonial dances. The
Mokl are such marvelous runners that
frequently they make a trip on foot to
the canyon, a distance of 100 miles. In
a single day.

The common theory that all colda
are the result of exposure of some sort
U a great mistake. Exposure la not the
direct cause of the disease. Scientist
say that colda are caused by a bostlla
microbe, which gains a foothold when
vitality Is lowered by exposure, and
that If one la Inured to exposures ha
has an effective remedy against the mi
crobe of cold as well aa many others.
There are many evidence to prove thla
theory. There are many places where
It Is Impossible to catch cold, becausa
there Is no cold to catch.
Nansen and his men, during the three
year they spent In the arctic region,
were Immune from cold, though they
were constantly enduring exposure of

more than 200 years and was of great
Interest to Dr. Johnson, who wos skep

Tho question of this St. Kltda cold
long puzzled men, who never dreamed
that It was an Infectious disease and
Utat without the possibility of Infec
tion It Is Impossible to catch It, no
matter what the exposure may be.
That Is to say. It ts due to a micro
organism, and without the presence
of this micro-organism the disease can
not be contracted.
