DON'T DE TOO HARD ON US."
Plea of Russian Papers to Japan
Some Suspect America.
Bt. Petersburg, Juno 10, Tho press
of all shades of opinion is discussing
Japan's probable terms mid declares
with practical unanimity lor a continu
ation of tho war rather than tho accept
ance of humiliating conditions. In
this the newspapers nro upheld by pub
lic opinion, which is steering around
to support of tho war policy if Japan's
terms prove too hard.
Only the Nashi Shim advisea Russia
that she need not balk at thu payment
ot an indemnity, tho cession of tho
Sakhalin islands, thu renunciation ot
her right to keep warships in Far Last-
em waters or the surrender of Vladi
vostok, but thu paper holds that Russia
must retain Northern Manchuria and
thu Vladivostok railroad.
Th lkmrse Guxetto draws a gloomy
picture of Russia's relations with
France, Great Ilrltain, Germany and
Austria. Tho Novoo Vromya and the
reactionary Svlct sound notes against
tho United BUtes. Tho Novoe Vromya
reiterate! that Russia's chief enomles
in the Far Fast nro not the Japanese,
but tho Ilritish and the Americans, on
account of their commercial rivalry,
while the bviet objects to Washington
as tho place of meeting of tho pleni
iH)tontiarlus, declaring that thu atmos
phere there is unfriendly, and asserting
tlmt Russia's representatives will be
subjected to prejudica! inlluencea in
"tho capltol of tho enemy's ally."
BAD AIR IN THE SUBWAY.
Scientist States that Gases May Ex

Now York, Juno 10. Foulness of nir
In tho subway has leeched tho eatge
when the fainting of women Is ot al
most dally occurrence and tho indica
tions are that na tho summer advances
conditions will grow worse. Nicola
Tosla makes a statement that indicates
that the poisonous clmractor of the sub
way nlr Is not its most dangerous
characteristic, but that it la really a
violently explosive union ot gases that
may at any time cause such a catas
trophe as la occasionally reported from
deep mines. Tesla in his statement
says in part:
"The danger to which I refer Ilea in
tho possibility of generating an explos
ive mixture by electrolytic decomposi
tion und thermic dlsussoclation of
water through direct currents used in
the operation of the cars. Such pro
cess might go on or hours and days
without being noticed, nnd with cur
rents of this kind it is scarcely practi
cable to avoid it altogether."
England Stands Ready.
London, Juno 10. It la probable that
the crisis that Ueriuuny la forcing iiiton
tho nations of Europe will soon naaumo

made by the kaiser has been aimed nt

damage Ilritish interests. Tho Ilritish

World's Kulr ns such, yet In everything

part nud tholr withdrawn! would hnve
left lingo Kaps and taken away tho
best. Had tho products of the dam
and ditch alt been labeled "Grown by
Irrigation," the irrigation exhibit
would hnvo been very largo. But few
of the hundreds of thousands of peo
plo who viewed with amazement the
magnificent fruits and gralni from the
Western 8tatci, fnr moro notable In
size, appearance and yield than any
thing Uiey over mw In the Knit, were
fully nblo to realize that Uiom prod
ucts wero raised upon lands which a
few yean ago wen useless deserts,
but now made fertile by the art of
Irrigation. Practical methods of Irri
gation were demonstrated at tbo Gov
ern men t building by a model of Salt
Illver Valley In Arizona, wuoro a sys
tem of ditches and laterals, by which
tho water is distributed onto tho farms
and orchards below, are now under
construction In the mountains. Heal
water was running through theso
dltche. Tills groat work of Uncle
Barn's in Arizona Is progressing rap
idly. A cement mill, to make the 200,
000 barrels of cement needed In tho
masonry, Is completed; a $100,000
mountain road, to convey the dam
material from Phoenix li finished and,
most rcmarkablo, the river Itself has
been carried through tunnels around
the dam site nnd Is furnishing 1,000
electric horse power with which to
build the dam. This li to be used to
construct the giant works and thus tho
river will build its own dam and form
the greatest reservoir In tho United
States. Of all ilzei and claisei wore
tho Irrigation pumps exhibited In tbo
farm and Implement department; but
moro striking than theno wero the
wldnmllls. Those busy machines rear
til tholr tall heads abore tbo surround

ple of man's ingenuity In harnessing
the elements. The highest of these,
built by one of tho largest -windmill
manufacturers, spread 1U steel wings
120 feet in the air, nnd with a moder
ate wind pumped -10,000 gallons an

artesian well, enough to Irrigate thor
oughly a good-sized farm. The West
Is at the beginning of tremendous
progress In agriculture. The govern

Western States nnd Territories, and as
