In 1899, beforo Russia had advanced
to occupy Mongolia and Manchuria,
Vladimir Holstrcm of tho St. Peters
burg Vledomoatl wroto tho follow
ing for tho New York Independent:
"Tho groat czar of Moscow, Ivan
tho Terrible, who nearly 150 years
before Peter tho Great had sketched
out tor that Russian reformer his plan
of action, fought Swcdon and Poland
In the west and subdued tho Tartar
kingdoms of Kaznn and Astrakhan In
the cast. The name of Russia rang
throughout tho whole of Asia, and her
chief princes and tho khan of Siberia
voluntarily acknowledge tho Biiprora
ncy of Russia, sending ambassadors
to Moscow and paying tribute to tho
czar. . . .
"After tho conquest of tho Tnrtar
kingdom of Kazan, In 1552, tho suprem
acy of Russia was acknowledged by
tho numerous tribes of Bashkirs dwel
ling eastward of tho Volga and form
ing a link with tho tribes toward tho
Aral sea. Russia's possession of west
ern Siberia was nssured to her In leas
than halt a century. In tho same
uondorful way Russia's progress
across Siberia to tho very Bhores of
tho Pacltlc was accomplished in llttlo
more than 50 years.
"About 1G04 Russia entered Into a
mutually binding agreement with a
powerful Mongolian khan of southern
Siberia to keep open access to China.
Soon afterward, In 1C19, tho emperor
of China sent his first ombnssy to
Russia. In 1C38 tea was first intro
duced into Europo (In this matter
Russia was beforo England). During
the next twenty years all tho regions
to tho north and northwest of Siberia,
all its northern river system nnd tho
Arctic coast were explorod.
"A Cossack expedition, 730 strong,
dispatched from Yakutsk, reached tho
rhor Amur, and following Its course,
discovered, in 1C43, tho straits of Tar
tary and tho sea of Okhotsk. Now
tho wholo of Siberia was in Russia's
bands; everywhere, on tho principal
rivers, up to the Arctic circle and be
yond It, and tho natives acknowledged
Russian supremacy and paid tril-ute.
"A"n adventurous trader from Ya
kutsk conceived tho Idea of opon'.ng
for Russia tho region about tho Amur
and tho Shllka rlvors. and gathering
togethor a following of 150 men with
two cannons, accomplished In somo
two yenrs tho task. This took place

with various tribes of tho
Entlnucd through the scv-
In, eighteenth and well on Into
Inetcenth century, tho Kaznks
vlng more trouble. These Knzaks
nro of Turkic (not Osmanll) origin
nnd nro nearly related to tho Cos
sacks, on tho ono hand nnd tho Rus
slnn Kirghiz tribes on tho other.
"Tholr power was finally broken
when In tho second half of tho pres
ent century tho Russians subdued
Turkestan, conquered tho Khanato of
Khiva, took Tashkent and Samark
and nnd brought under their sway tho
khnnntca cf Bokhara and Kokan,
thereby rounding out their posses
sions in central Asia.
"There was no special plan adopt
ed for this wonderful progress
through two continents. It devclopod
ltsolf under tho pressuro of clrcum-
stances nnd tho Influence of that host
of guides Instinct. Cossacks, traders
and Bottlers spread over tho plains of
Siberia nnd tho stoppes of centrnl
Asia by way of that rlvpr system
which 1b Siberia's greatest opportu
nity and her best chanco for tho at
tainment of a wondorful degree of
prosperity. Tho ultimate object of
this expansion was that Russia wns
always seeking for an outlet to the
open sea.
"During thoso hundred years Rus
sia has devoted herself to developing
tho lncxlmustlblo natural wealth of
Slboria, but as yet with no great suc
cess, comparatively Bpeaklng. Wo are
now In possession of a great oraplro
which extends from tho Ural moun
tains to tho far East and covers an
area of nearly 5,312,000 square miles,
I. o., about forty-four times as large
ns Great Britain and Ireland. But it
must bo borno In mind that these fig-
uios are merely approximate. The
population of Siberia Includes many
thousnnds of Catholics, Protestants
nnd Jews, nnd a greater number still
of Mahometans and heathens.
"Russia's Asiatic possessions have a
splendid future beforo them. Tho
country Is well known to abound In'
mineral wealth. In tho old days of
undeveloped communications nnd a
primitive state of Industry tho trade
of Siberia with Russia amounted to
somo $(50,000,000 to $70,000,000 annu
ally. "Practically, all tho towns of Si
beria aro trading centers, but, after
Vladivostok and Irkutsk, this is espe
cially tho case, In western Siberia. It
Is only now thnt, thanks to tho rail
way, Siberia Is coming Into close ma
terial conduct with European Russia.
Tho natives, numbering nearly 2,000,
000, the Russians, Poles, Finns nnd
Germans enjoy tho advantages of mil
scums, BChools and theaters built for
their instruction; Tomsk prides Itself
on Its university. In short, Siberia
is in full swing
nnd only needs
more energetic
men and moro of
tho creative forco
of capital to at
tain to a marvel
ous development
of her possibili
ties In tho spheres
of trade and In
dustry. "Tho conclu
sions wo have ar
rived at are that
In the past Russlr
has r e n d e r o t
enormous service
to mankind In
keeping in check
the barbarians of
Asia, and finally,
through incessant
strife, by break
ing up their empires; that Russia's
expansion In Asia was and is an In
stinctive movement boding peace, It
Is a natural peaceful .development,
which besides Russia Is to bo found
in two moro cases only China and
tho United States; that It is useless
to opposo Russia in Asia and groatly
preferable to asaoclato onesolf with
her In hor policy; obstacles may bo
raised in Russia's path at all points,
but tho force of circumstances will in
the long run sweep them all away."

Arriving at a Verdict.
Kushcqua, Pa., Aug. 1. (Special)
In this section of Pennsylvania thero
l.i a growing belief that for such Kid
ney Diseases as Rheumatism and
Lame Back there is only ono suro
euro nnd that Is Dodd's Kidney Pills.
This belief grows from such cases as
that of Mrs. M. L. Daviaon of this
place. Sho tells tho story herself as
"I have Buffered from Rheumatism
for thirty years and find that Dodd's
Kidney Pills have done mo moro good
than any medlclno I havo ever taken.
I was nlso bothered with Lamo Back
nnd I can only say that my back
hasn't bothered mo slnco I took
Dodd's Kidney Pills."
Considering that Mrs. Davison only
took two boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills,
the result would bo considered won
derful If It wero not that others aro
reporting similar results dally. Kushe
qua is fast arriving at a verdict that
"Dodd's Kidney Pills aro tho ono Buro
euro for i:heumatlsm."
